here there’s smoke, there’s fire . . . and with this week’s new anti-arson initiative, emergency crews hope there’s a phone call too. The Abbotsford’s police and fire departments are working with a newly created map documenting locations targeted during a rash of fires started over the past three months. There have been 27 suspicious blazes between April 10 and July 10, with 12 of those fires occurring at local schools and parks. Angela Scott, a youth squad officer with the APD, said along with the school fires, witnesses have seen young people fleeing the areas where the fires were set. see FIRES, page A7

He described the area in question as “the bowl,” or central area of Prince George. The McCanns were heading to Abbotsford to pick up their daughter at the airport before starting a family holiday. They were last seen July 3 in a security video, fuelling their 1999 Gulfstream motor home at a gas station in St. Albert, Alta., a few kilometers northwest of Edmonton.

eadpins fans got a treat Wednesday night when the band’s drummer Bernie Aubin picked up pair of drumsticks to drive the beat behind a couple of songs, at the celebrity auction at the Duke of Dublin Old Irish pub in Abbotsford. Aubin also donated signed drumsticks and other items for the event. The auction was held to raise funds for the family of Clare Shelswell, a five-oldyear kindergarten student from Godson Elementary who was killed during a family vacation in Washington last month. Her stepfather has been charged with first-degree murder.

“Clare was a rainbow of joy in our lives and she will be greatly missed. To all who donated, items and time, (some pub staff worked free for the event), we thank you from our hearts.” – Sarah Wilson mother

The event shocked locals, including Allison Taekema, whose daughter attended school with Clare. “I can’t imagine that happening, it’s just so horrible,” she said. Taekema, her partner Sean Brown, and musician Darrin Nikolas, organized the fundraiser and called in favours from friends (Aubin is Taekema’s

CLARE SHELSWELL dad) in the entertainment industry. As a result, the auction included signed CDs and other music memorabilia goodies from several artists such as Nora Jones, Diana Krall, Elvis Costello and Nazareth. Local businesses, such as Long & McQuade and Kings Mu s i c a l s o c o n t r i b u t e d items, as did the Canucks and the B.C. Lions. Musician Steve Hillis provided the live entertainment. “It went really well,” said Nikolas, with supporters picking up choice memorabilia. “There are a few items left, and we’ll find some way to put them up for bid.” Clare’s death stunned the Abbotsford community, which has tried ways to help Clare’s mother, Sarah Wilson. The Mountain Park Community Church, which the family attends, has set up a trust fund for Sarah and her remaining young daughter. All funds raised at the celebrity auction will go to that trust fund. Dur ing the evening, a w o m a n f r o m Mo u n t a i n Park Community Church had a message from Sarah Wilson to those at the pub fundraiser. “We’d like to thank everyone gathered here for your big heart,” was the message. “Clare was a rainbow of joy in our lives and she will

Flagman killed on Hwy 7 Breaking news A

flagman working at a constructions zone along the Lougheed Highway was killed Thursday morning, RCMP said. The 49-year-old man was attempting to step out into the traffic flow along Hwy. 7 near the Oliver Street intersection. He was about to stop a line of vehicles when a car being driven in the eastbound lane struck him. The incident occurred around 8:15 a.m. and the victim was transported to Abbotsford Regional Hospital, said Mission RCMP Sgt. Miriam Dickson.

“The male was pronounced deceased upon arrival. “The Mission Traffic Services [is] currently investigating in order to determine the exact cause of the accident. Speed is not believed to be a factor at this time,” she said in a release. Mission RCMP are urging the public to be diligent and aware when traveling through construction zones. – STAFF REPORTER

ith the summer sun dappling through dark evergreens beyond the open windows, the chorus of voices rose and spilled out of the Chapel in the Woods with the fervor and assurance of true believers. But among the rich resonance of the final hymn of How Great Thou Art, there was entwined a chord of sorrow. For many of the men who stood and sang among the pews of the cedar sanctuary they had built, and for so many others who had literally come to the end of their road in the backwoods of Mission, they had found a new life in this Valley of Miracles. But now, after 50 years of righting men who had fallen into the black abyss of addiction, the Salvation Army’s treatment and rehabilitation centre was closing. The chapel fell silent on Wednesday at the end of the service, as Salvation Army leaders soberly folded the camp’s scarlet Blood and Fire flag, retiring it to history.

The centre has seen an estimated using 12 different substances. 35,000 men come into its healing “I was just a mess.

outsiders, such as Mission RCMP Insp. Pat Walsh, a community council member for the site for several years. “I believe in the work of this facility, I have seen the miracles with my own eyes,” he said, referring to an acquaintance who received help at Miracle Valley. The centre was part of the solution in addressing addictions, “so it will be with bit of sadness, and foreboding, that we accept the closing of this facility,” he said. Earlier this year, Salvation Army headquarters in B.C. made the tough decision to close the treatment camp, which sits on a 77acre parcel in rural Mission. It had grown from a rough hewn retreat where men could get sober and find Christ, to a cutting edge facility offering a 12-step, clinical therapy, art therapy and education. But numbers fell from a peak of 200 to just 80 men in recent years, as interest has dropped in remote retreats. The Salvation Army will continue to offer treatment services at its Belkin House and Harbour Light in Vancouver.

bbotsford police have a r re s t e d a m a n f o u r years after beginning an investigation into complaints filed by an immigrant who came to Canada in 2006. Terence Paul Jackman, 59, has been charged with extortion, break and enter and theft over $5,000. The charges stem from an incident involving a 43year-old mother (at the time), who was befriended by Jackman upon her arrival to Canada from China. The woman complained to police Jackman had robbed and threatened her. She contacted police regarding a number of items stolen from her apartment shortly after she moved in, APD Const. Ian MacDonald said in a release. “More disturbing was the presence of a note demanding money in exchange for the return of the belongings and the future safety of [the woman] and her daughter,” MacDonald said. According to MacDonald, Jackman is well known to law enforcement and has an extensive criminal history. “Abbotsford police would like to use this incident to highlight the courage of the victim of this offence in reporting to us in the first instance, and subsequently working patiently through the investigative and court processes,” MacDonald said. Po l i c e a n d t h e v i c t i m faced a number of cultural, ethnic and language barriers while proceeding with the case over the years. MacDonald said department officials felt she not only acted courageously on her and her daughter’s behalf, but she also benefited the local population. – STAFF REPORTER

Big jump in house sales S

ales processed on the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board’s Multiple Listing Service jumped 23 per cent from 1,477 sales in May to 1,815 in June. Down eight per cent from last year. “Historically, it’s not unusual for June sales to outperform May in the Fraser Valley.” Deanna Horn, board president said. “However, a 23 per cent increase in one month is significant. “Although we’re seeing a decrease in the number of new properties coming in, June buyers have only had this volume of homes to choose from two other times in our history, in 1995 and 2008.” Total active inventory on Fraser Valley’s MLS at month’s end was 11,110, 19 per cent more than in June 2009. The Board’s MLS received nine per cent fewer new listings in June compared to May. “Listings typically do decrease in the summer, which will continue to stabilize the market. In June, the benchmark price for FraserValley detached homes was $518,355, a 9.9 per cent increase compared to $471,788 in June 2009. The benchmark price of Fraser Valley townhouses in June was $328,080, up nine per cent from June 2009. Apartments increased by 6.6 per cent year-over-year from $231,014 in June 2009 to $246,351 in June 2010. – STAFF REPORTER

Runaway Jeep hits mom A

bbotsford mom Lakhbir Farwaha was waiting at a red light as she headed north on Clearbrook Road Monday afternoon. Out of nowhere, a runaway Jeep Cherokee smashed into her 1999 Toyota Corolla with such force her vehicle was spun around by the impact. Abbotsford police say a tow truck lost the Jeep it was pulling as it turned south on to Clearbrook Road. Lakhbir’s daughter Harpreet said the runaway Jeep was moving so fast it jumped over the median before striking her mom’s car. Farwaha, 53, was taken to the hospital in shock, and remains in pain from the sudden impact, Harpreet said Tuesday. It could have been much worse, she added. “What if a mother and a child were hit, what if they were walking?” she asked.

Mission couple honour son through fundraising efforts CHRISTINA TOTH CToth@abbotsfordtimes.com

O

n July 25, Jennifer and Ian Shandler will mark a difficult anniversary. One year ago, their young son Chase Jaxon Shandler died, at just three and half months. The little boy had been born on April 11, 2009, with gastroschisis, or an opening in his abdominal wall. But after three surgeries to repair his condition and some recuperation, he was doing well and so the Shandlers brought their baby boy home to Mission. “When he was able to take all his food orally, then he was strong enough to come home. It was so nice to have him home,” Jennifer recalled.

“I put him in the car seat to take him in to Children’s (Hospital) , and by the time I got out to the truck, he had stopped breathing. I called 911 and tried to resuscitate him, but by the time [the ambulance] arrived, he was gone.” – Jennifer Shandler mother

But his first night he didn’t sleep and was gassy, said Jennifer. A few days before, they had introduced breast milk for the first time, and the medical staff she spoke with thought his symptoms were due to the breast milk. She called the hospital staff three times to let them know of the symptoms, and was advised he should be fine within 24 hours of not having breast milk. But Chase was still not himself the next day, so she prepared to drive the baby to B.C. Children’s Hospital. “I put him in the car seat to take him in to Children’s (Hospital), and by the time I got out to the truck, he had stopped breathing. I called 911 and tried to resuscitate him, but by the time [the ambulance] arrived, he was gone,” said Jennifer. The autopsy came back inconclusive, so it’s unknown if complications from Chase’s condition led to his death. “It was horrifying. It was like we were caught up in a nightmare, and I just kept wishing we would wake up. It was very difficult, and still is,” said Jennifer. “We had a

lot of support from family and friends.” To try to ease their grief, at Chase’s service the young couple asked attendees to do something good in their baby’s honour, such as donations to the B.C. Children’s Hospital. Over the course of their experience, the Shandlers learned gastroschisis affects about one in 5,000 Canadian babies. It’s usually detected before birth by ultra sound observation. In this condition, as the fetus grows the intestines and sometimes other organs develop outside the fetal abdomen through an opening in the abdominal wall. Surgeons can generally repair the condition with surgeries to tuck the protruding organs back into the body. In western countries, the survival rate is 90 per cent. The loss of Chase continues to weigh heavily on Jennifer and Ian, but they are trying hard to turn their grief into ways to honour their little boy. They have held a couple of small fundraisers for the unit where Chase stayed at the hospital, and are planning another on July 24, a year after their baby’s death. “I find that it helps me to do things for him,” said Jennifer. “The fundraiser is the day before his passing, so we’re trying to make it a big deal.” Jennifer wants to continue to support the hospital, especially “after spending two and a half months in the hospital with Chase and seeing all the sick babies and children there.” “We are [also] hoping to raise awareness about gastroschisis as well as create a very successful event in memory of our baby.” The Shandlers are asking people to donate cash or cheques, silent auction items, or new unwrapped toys, all of which will be donated to the hospital. Tickets are $15 with $9 going straight to the hospital, plus there will be a 50/50 draw, a toonie toss, and a silent auction with items including a photo shoot, a chartered fishing day trip, Blue Ray DVD player, a digital camera, a cedar playhouse and more. ◗ The fundraiser is a burger and beer event at the Cat & Fiddle Pub, 1979 Brown St., Port Coquitlam, from 4:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. on July 24. If you wish to donate, contact Jennifer at shandler_jen@ live.com.

FIRE, from page A1 “We’re hoping to generate conversation within the youth community, receive tips on our anonymous tip line, hopefully intervene with the kids responsible, educate them in the consequences. The bottom line is, these are probably great kids making really bad choices,” said Scott. “[Arson incidents involving youths] are always heightened during the summer hours, kids are bored and it’s a momentary bad decision that could potentially lead to a fatal consequence.” She added, the youth squad is careful to take the right tact when approaching the youths in Abbotsford. “It’s not about going and finding kids and arresting them, it’s about educating them.” Steve Oldroyd, fire prevention officer with Abbotsford Fire and Rescue, said these instances of arson are costing the taxpayer big bucks. He said one captain and three firefighters responding to a call can cost from $700 to $800 an hour. “Every time a truck rolls to a nuisance call, like a dumpster fire or a paper box on fire, that is taxpayer money going out the window,” Oldroyd said.

Elly Sawchuk, and Abbotsford Fire and Rescue’s Steve Oldroyd with a map of the spots in Abbotsford that have been hit with arson in the last three months. By occupying the fire department with those “nuisance calls,” firefighters are prevented from attending major structure fires and medical emergencies, he said. Oldroyd added Abbotsford has a Juvenile Firesetter Program, which teaches youths about the consequences, both in terms of costs and physical harm, which can come with arson. “It’s a program that most kids walk away from thinking ‘wow, I had no idea,’” he said. Tracy Van Asseldonk, a crime analyst with the APD, put together the map, which is invaluable in both preventing fires and looking

for leads. “We can see where most of the activity is happening and from there we can look at people we know in the area. In this case we can talk to schools and see if certain students are persons of interest to us,” said Van Asseldonk. Abbotsford Police Det. Wanda Lane said the map is an important part of intelligence that keeps officers in the know as to what type of calls are being reported and where events are taking place.

ater heating is the second largest source of energy consumption in a typical B.C. home. BC Hydro is reminding Abbotsford residents to use water and energy wisely during the warm summer days. Here’s how: ■ Run full loads – Dishwashers and clothes washers use a lot of energy and water. However, many dishwashers have energy-saving wash cycles. Doing full, and therefore fewer loads, will reduce energy use, water waste and electricity bills. ■ Use a water-saving showerhead – A ten minute shower can use up to 190 litres of hot water. Watersaving showerheads can reduce this by at least half without sacrificing water pressure. If 10,000 households switched to low-flow showerheads, the annual energy savings could power 300 homes for a year.

It’s never easy saying goodbye

I

know the name of the column is Paul’s Bawls, but I am finding it hard to complain about anything today. The sun is shining and the weekend is nearing. All is right in my world. My summer of freelancing ends with this column as I leave for Montreal early next week to work and prepare for school. Even as I feel at peace now, the state of journalism has been, and will continue to be, in flux. Newspapers are closing and most readers prefer the sore eyes you get reading news on the computer screen to the smudged fingers you get flipping through the newspaper. My parents are in B.C. for a visit and my mom actually owns one of those computerized reading pads now. Moving around as a child the worst part was packing her mountain of books, mostly detective and romance novels. But, as I grew older there was something indescribably comfortable about the smell of a used book, or the way that one book can come in a variety of covers, depending on the edition. In my life, and in the lives of most of my family members, books were synonymous with the trips you read them on, the times in your life when reading that book signaled a change. Those are the kinds of feelings that opening up a newspaper has

PAUL FONTAINE

Paul’s bawls brought me as an adult. When I started reporting I got to see the impact that news, both well- and poorly-written can have on a community. In Abbotsford, it has been a great learning experience covering both the city and education beats. Communities depend on these two areas for the betterment of society. My grandparents used to spend a lot of time debating over the topics that had been covered in their local newspaper. The better the reporting, the more heated the debate. As much as I enjoy getting out into the community and trying to accurately and comprehensively tell the stories of the public, I get an equal amount of enjoyment from seeing how more gifted reporters go about their work. In Abbotsford, I have had the pleasure of working with a special group of reporters, who are ever ready to go out and cover a breaking news event, or to ask questions that aren’t always easy to put forward, but are certainly

vital to telling a more accurate version of the story. Their skill gives me faith that no matter whether it is in a paper or on a computer screen, information obtained through hard work and persistence is invaluable and will never go out of style. I will always be indebted to the Times for allowing me to come back time and time again to do something that I really enjoy doing. My last full-time reporting job was in Grande Prairie, Alta., another community where agriculture played a major part in the economy and the lives of the people in the community. Like in Grande Prairie, I have had the pleasure of driving by Fraser Valley farmland on sunny days. Those are days I will remember until I stop being able to remember anything. Before becoming a journalist I used to haul around TVs and furniture at a department store – this is much better. While I have had a lot of feedback from readers in the community, most positive, some not so much, it still beats dropping a TV in the middle of the showroom. ■ Paul Fontaine is a freelance jour-

nalist with the Abbotsford-Mission Times. He is now returning to Montreal, Que. to begin his Masters in Journalism Studies at Concordia University.

ven though Abbotsford was supposed to be a small side trip for Lyle and Marie Ann McCann, it became a turning point in the lives of their family. When the elderly couple failed to materialize and pick up family members at the Abbotsford International Airport, alarm bells began sounding and a massive police investigation into the missing couple’s whereabouts was launched. Hundreds of police and thousands of everyday citizens, just like you, now scan roads and highways for the pair’s missing Hyundai SUV, hoping to help solve the mystery of their disappearance, and put a family’s hearts at peace. The McCanns have been described as gentle, loving parents and grandparents, hard workers who spent their whole lives dedicated to their work and family. A description shared by many in our own lives. In many ways Lyle and Marie Ann could be our own parents or grandparents, and despite Abbotsford’s tenuous link to the ongoing drama involving their disappearance, the people in our community feel a kinship to the missing couple; a kinship that comes from the desperation of the situation. Who couldn’t imagine the McCanns as their own family? Is there anyone among us who couldn’t comprehend the anxiety, the sleepless nights and the stress of not knowing what fate has befallen loving family members? Two complete strangers have captured the hearts and minds of a nation, as police, family and the public frantically try to piece together the mystery of their disappearance. And along the way, the public is finding out something important about itself — that people do care, and care a lot. When something happens to two of us, in many ways it happens to all of us. Here’s to hoping that the something is amazing, and Lyle and Marie Ann are reunited with their family once again.

Easy writer: be wary of reefer madness Editor, the Times:

Embarrassing isn’t it, when Canadians start imitating their southern neighbours? (APD sorry for armed raid on home of ‘upstanding citizens’, Times, July 9). A decade ago when Canada let the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration spread its claws into your nation’s policy decisions, many of us active in drug policy reform predicted chaos would ensue. Indeed it has. Because officers “smelled” cannabis they surround a home with guns drawn, knowing it’s a home with no criminals? Wow. Over 70 years later and reefer madness is still alive and kicking. How does it feel being the 51st state in the Union? Allan Erickson Eugene, OR

Payments are more taxing than described Editor, the Times:

Comments in the article Businesses being taxed to the max (Times, July 6) are misleading. Firstly, it says an average Abbotsford property valued at $396,887 pays $2,669 in taxes. My house is valued at $392,000 and I pay $3,800 in property tax. Secondly, a business pays its taxes out of profits and can deduct these taxes out of income tax. I have to pay my mortgage interest, house insurance, utilities and repairs, none of which are tax deductible. A business can deduct all these expenses before it pays a penny in income tax.

City should have a look at its priorities Editor, the Times:

How is it that while allowing Matsqui pool to close and charging more for the use of public fields, our fine city can still find the tax dollars to subsidize the rugby tournament coming to town the end of July? Is hypocrisy too strong a word when our leaders supposedly espouse exercise, yet choose to direct our money to for-profit organizations such as an AHL franchise and Rugby Sevens?

Nothing can touch the power of nature Editor, the Times:

This summer, thousands of people heading to and from the B.C. Interior and Lower Mainland will pass the famous Hope slide on Highway 3. Many will stop to view the massive environmental devastation this natural event caused 45 years ago when 46 million cubic meters of pulverized rock, mud, and debris came down the mountainside with a force so great it completely displaced the water and mud in the lake below, and scraped away trees and vegetation on the opposite side of the valley. In the natural history of B.C., the Hope slide is probably just one such natural environmental disaster and it dwarfs any damage that past logging, mining and other resource

Fortunately for the B.C. environment, environmental awareness has increased greatly over the past several decades and the requirements for industrial activities such as logging, mining and road-building that could impinge on the environment have tightened considerably. In many cases, the rules and regulations in place for new resource extraction activities like wind energy and run-of-river projects are actually leading to the reversal of human-caused damage from the past through the rehabilitation of abandoned logging roads and the restoration and enhancement of lost fish and wildlife habitats. But as the Hope slide reminds us all, there is nothing that we humans can do to the environment

that can match the devastating power of nature itself. When it comes to causing environmental damage we are complete amateurs compared to Mother Nature. Sandra Robinson Maple Ridge

Fetching ideas about Dogwood Party Editor, the Times:

It’s not rocket science to say anything against Mr. Campbell and his supporters in government. It would be like shooting fish in a barrel at this point with the grass roots movement against his anticonsumer tax grab. Those few people still around who think that this is just a bunch of NDP’ers fighting the last election are indulging in wishful thinking. There is something more afoot about Mr.

Campbell’s tax grab, which makes his removal an imperative and also cries out for a new centralist party to form – and quickly. I’m not convinced the NDP should be seen as the only alternative to the Liberals who have seen their party hijacked by the far right economic philosophies of the Fraser Institute and other disciples of the totally discredited free market and globalization mantras. There is a role for governments to play in providing a balanced economy and protecting our rights in a liberal democracy. These words – free trade and globalization – aren’t some abstract concepts; they are real and they lie at the heart of what’s wrong in the priorities of the Campbell government. Think, people, think.

Ask yourself: who are you following?

Did Jesus have a tweeting mind?

J

esus’ directive to follow him is a central theme throughout the gospels. He begins his public ministry by telling his disciples to follow him. John 1:43 (NIV) The next day Jesus decided to leave for Galilee. Finding Philip, he said to him, “Follow me.” Throughout his ministry he makes it clear that following him is synonymous with being his disciple. John 10:27 (NIV) My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. What exactly did Jesus mean by this? Let’s face it if you are like me, we are a bit jaded by the concept of following someone. We see millions of people tuning in to find out which city the latest free-agent sports celebrity will play in or how long the latest fallen Hollywood starlet will spend

behind bars. At the same time more and more high profile personalities continue to crash and burn on an almost daily basis. Is this what Jesus intended? In addition to these high-profile people, we are constantly being invited to follow people on the social networking sites like Twitter. You can follow just about anyone who Tweets if you want find out what kind of coffee they are ordering or what they are planning on having for lunch – wow. Did Jesus have tweeting in mind when he directs us to follow him? What I find even more fascinating than Jesus calling us to follow him, is his seemingly continual attempt to dissuade people from actually following him! Luke 9

TODD MARTIN

Faith that matters summarizes just this point. Several people said they wanted to follow Jesus, but Jesus was discerning enough to know that they were not ready to give up everything to follow him. Jesus later in John 6 asks the twelve disciples if they want to leave too. Peter responds with a profound answer; Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We believe and know that you are the Holy One of God. You see when Jesus said follow me, he had nothing less than total

submission of our lives in mind with absolutely no holding back. These people who stopped following Jesus didn’t sign up for obedience and sacrifice, they were probably there for the Tweets and Wall posts. They may have been following Jesus for a variety of reasons such as, they liked parties, they liked where the crowd was. Maybe they were attracted to Jesus’ personality and thought his church was the best one this month; maybe they were wowed by his miracles and wanted the show to keep going. Whatever the reasons, their motivation was wrong. They wanted to be users of Jesus – not be his followers. Being a follower means leaving what you are doing, be told what to do and being glad about it all. That is hard. Oswald Chambers in his daily devotional, My

Utmost for His Highest for July 12 puts it this way: To fulfill God’s perfect design for me requires my total surrender— complete abandonment of myself to Him. Whenever I only want things for myself, the relationship is distorted. And I will suffer great humiliation once I come to acknowledge and understand that I have not really been concerned about realizing Jesus Christ Himself, but only concerned with knowing what He has done for me. My goal is God Himself, not joy nor peace, Nor even blessing, but Himself, my God. Am I measuring my life by this standard or by something less? Who are you following?

THE TIMES FRIDAY, JULY 16, 2010 ❘

Self-esteem is not a swear word

T

he way you view yourself has an incredible impact on your entire life. The estimate you pass on yourself and your opinion of yourself affects your relationships, career, family life and even your health. High performance, personal accountability and creative innovation are part of God’s plan for our lives. Your self-concept, the way you view yourself, is the foundation to all achievement. Proverbs 23:7 tells us that “As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.” The gravitational pull of your self-limiting beliefs will involve self-sabotage. Experiencing constant doubts about your ability to think, learn and to deal with the challenges of life will cause you to give up and not make your best effort. If you believe you are a failure, you will act like one. It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. If this

describes you it is time to confront your fears and doubts. As Nathaniel Branden in his book Self-Esteem at Work puts it, “If you deny your problems, you sentence yourself to being stuck in the very pain you wish to escape.” Deuteronomy 28:1 - 14 lists the joys and the blessings of those who follow God’s way. How can I allow God to bring good things into my life and bless me, if I reject His blessings? God has made us worthy. Jesus died on the cross and rose again to give us new life. Jesus said in John 10:10 “The devil comes to steal, kill and destroy, but I have come to give you life and to give it to you more abundantly.” We cannot experience the abundant life if we are full of self-condemnation. It simply stops the flow of God’s blessings. Self-management and selfexpression are not evil. Proverbs 16:3 encourages us to put

7. Ask for what you want. Needs include your physical, emotional, intellectual, social and spiritual, moral or ethical needs. (God’s ears are always attentive so take advantage of pouring your heart out to Him.) 8. Know what you want and go after it. There are few greater sources of human pain than the feeling of stagnation or immobility (really wanting something without ever achieving it.) What do you want? What hurts or feels bad? What are you hungry for? What are your dreams? What are your little comforts? List your steps and overcome blocks. Trust God enough that He created you for a specific purpose. In everything you do, ask God for His help and trust Him to direct you. Begin to cooperate with Him in being the best you there could ever be.

Whatever you do, allow it to be a natural flow of your aliveness, not from the need to prove your value. 5. See yourself clearly and accurately perceiving your strengths and weaknesses.

God in charge of our plans so that we will be successful in carrying them out to completion. Allow the Lord to confront your negative beliefs and show you the truth about who you are. Here are eight ways to increase your self-esteem, taken from the book Self-Esteem by Matthew McKay and Patrick Fanning. I have found these to be very helpful in my life to overcome the belief that I was ugly and stupid. 1. Learn to change the critical self-talk, that inner monologue. Learn to talk back to the critic’s voice and learn to reject old negative programming by affirming yourself to fully disarm him. Identify your strengths. Possess an attitude of self-acceptance and don’t be judgmental toward self and others. Learn to think in healthy ways about yourself. 2. Solve problems instead of worrying about them. (As Chris-

A

ndrea Dykshoorn, coordinator for the HOST program for newly arrived immigrants at Abbotsford Community Services, has won a spot at the Canadian Museum for Human Rights this summer for her evocative photo of eager school children crowded into a classroom. Sh e e n t e re d E VO K E – Uncover your Human Rights Perspective, an online, multidisciplinary art contest for human rights expression offered by TakingITGlobal, in partnership with the Canadian Museum for Human Rights. Dykshoorn’s entry, Education for all, is a black and white image that captures 119 children stuffed into a single kindergarten-level classroom in a rural school in western Kenya. Some students are sitting two or three to a desk. Dykshoorn explains that the Kenyan government eliminated school fees at the primary level in 2003 to show its commitment, at least in principle, to the global consensus on Education For All.

Yet huge classes sizes and astonishing pupil to teacher ratios leave both Kenyans and internationals wondering if, in Kenyan primary schools, quantity has come at the expense of quality, she said. Does the right to access free education also come with the right to quality education, she asks. Dykshoorn’s work was one of 12 winners chosen from across the country. She flew to Winnipeg on July 1, after being the ACS staff ’s chauffeur in the Canada Day parade in Abbotsford. The winning art was exhibited to Queen Elizabeth during a ceremony to dedicate the new Canadian Museum for Human Rights in Winnipeg. See more at the www. humanrightsmuseum.ca Dykshoorn’s program offers a variety of services to newcomers to Canada, including a host program that pairs local business owners or professionals with immigrants with the same professional backgrounds.

Feeling grounded at 10,000 feet AbbyFest free fall . . . for a cause

I

t’s a bird. It’s a plane. No, it’s one of the AbbyFest skydivers coming in for a safe landing at the Abbotsford Skydive Centre. After decades of driving by the Drop Zone, I finally decided to take the giant leap of faith. The jump was initially scheduled for Canada Day, but due to the low cloud ceiling it was post phoned. AbbyFest organizer, Musleh Hakki jumped last year with Abbotsford MP Ed Fast to enhance awareness of multiculturalism and diversity in the Fraser Valley. Hakki said, “The focus of AbbyFest is to bridge the gaps and bring communities together. The skydive is another one of our avenues that is being used to achieve that goal.” Last week, with warm temperatures under sunny blue skies, it was a beautiful day for a skydive. The night before, I was tossing and turning about jumping out of a perfectly good airplane. I kept on asking myself, who in their right mind would do something like that? I would be lying to you if I said I wasn’t the slightest bit scared. Actually, a friend tried to convince me out of doing it all night. I didn’t even tell my family about my plunge, knowing they would be constantly praying for

my safe return. But I thought sometimes you have to throw yourself out there and see where it goes. Well, the afternoon arrived and it was time to celebrate our diversity in the skies at 10,000 feet. What a brilliant idea. There was no backing down. I arrived at the site a little nervous, but with confident smile. I was directed to the shed to get fitted into a body suit and some quick training I asked, who am I tandem jumping with today? “Mr. Pain” and you‘ll see why, a trainer replied with a smile. Spell that for me, I said with a quivering voice. The same trainer commented, “actually it is spelled PAYNE and he is an experienced skydiver with hundreds of jumps.” I was feeling a bit relieved when Brian Payne introduced himself and we had a brief chat about our upcoming adventure. He made a couple of important tips in our prep. Keep your arms crossed when we first jump out of the plane. Your legs should be crossed and arms should be extended during the freefall. He also stressed, I should never touch his hands at anytime and to keep my head up to enjoy the scenery. With that all in my head and

On the edge my adrenaline pumping, we were ready to fly. The single engine aircraft piloted by Grant Toews was waiting on the tarmac. Mitch Doucet, one the skydiving instructors was getting out at 3,000 feet. I took a quick look when he exited. With the plane door wide open in the sky, I can could hear the wind howling. Sweating profusely, my life suddenly flashed in front of my eyes. We weren’t even halfway up yet. Well, the moment came at 10,000 feet and Payne told me to turn around, so he could be connected on my back. As we were slowly moving to the open door together, I asked him several times “are we hooked up?’’ “Yes”, he replied. A few seconds, later we were droppingover the central Fraser Valley. With a couple of acrobatic flips while exiting the plane, he quickly flipped me face forward to the ground for the 40-second freefall. Honestly, with the fear factor involved it was difficult to focus on the gorgeous view, being it was my first jump. But overall, the

journey was fairly smooth, despite the wind blowing as though we were rag dolls a few times. Video and cameraman Mitch Dupoint took some excellent footage. It goes fast and in 40 seconds, we had already fallen 5,000 feet at 200 km/hr or 120 mph at 174 per feet a second. At that point, Payne pulled the cord for the parachute to deploy, totalling about six minutes from top to bottom with a photo finish. Owner Debbie Harper, who has run the business since 1976, said, “I get to be part of everyone’s fun. I see families, oms and dads and whole families coming together. We get to share in their

experiences. People come for different reasons. How lucky could I be.” Reflecting on our diversity in the skies, it became apparent that we have much more in common than we think at ground level. From that altitude, we all look the same and have the same fears. Come out August 2 and support the rest of the AbbyFest jumpers at the Abbotsford Skydiving Centre. Would I do it again? Absolutely. ■ Ken Herar is a columnist for the

Laying down ideas for ground cover Q: Our lawn has been decimated due to chafer beetles and I would like to get rid of the grass. Can you suggest an evergreen, low-growing quick-spreading ground cover which will tolerate some foot traffic to replace the grass? Mary Vancouver A: A quick-growing ground-cover may not make you happy in the long run All ground-covers are invasive and the quick-growing ones need extra vigilance to stop them infiltrating into your garden beds. One of the better lawn alternatives is white clover. It’s amenable to most soils, is drought-tolerant and its deep, tough roots are unappetizing to chafer larvae. It can go for weeks without mowing and is fairly resilient to foot traffic (though not as durable as grass). As well, white-flowered clover is a sun-loving legume that actually improves the soil by fixing nitrogen at its roots. The flowers attract honey bees and native bees to your garden where they’ll hang around and pollinate flowers and fruit. The biggest negative is that it’s usually grown from seed. This means it will take a few months for good coverage – though friends who look on white clover as a weed might be happy to have you dig plants out of their lawns! If garden centres can’t help with clover seed, I suggest you try www.oscseeds. com. This is a Canadian company based in Ontario. It offers several lawn alternatives. But I should mention ‘Crownvetch’ is on invasive plant lists and Sweet Woodruff has become a nightmare for many

ANNE MARRISON

Green thumb gardeners. If your lawn is sunny and well-drained, creeping thyme can handle some foot traffic. Creeping thyme has tiny pink flowers in summer and is beautifully fragrant when trod on. If your soil is heavy, amend the top few inches by digging in sand. An alternative might be stonecrop (Sedum acre). If your lawn is shady or part shady, you might try violets or Geranium macrorrhizum which has pink flowers much of the summer. I learned how rugged this geranium is by seeing it thriving mightly along the edge of narrow driveway where teenage boys routinely drove their cars over it. Bugleweed (Ajuga reptans) is also good in shade and has spectacular fourinch spikes of bright blue flowers (sometimes pink or white) in spring. But the quickest shade carpeter of anything I’ve mentioned so far is Creeping Jenny - especially when started from plants. Unfortunately it’s also great at jumping border edges. But its golden form is quite beautiful. If your lawn is very shady and your soil wants to make moss, why not let it? Moss doesn’t stand hard use and is slippy for running feet but can handle occasional, gentle walking.

MILLER Antoinette Jean February 18, 1916 - July 9, 2010. Another Star now shines in the Heavenly sky...on July 9th, 2010. Antoinette Jean Miller (Nee Coderre) left this world, to be welcomed into the next by the loving arms of her husband Jack, ten siblings and many friends. Mom will be forever remembered for her strength and determination. For even though a stroke left her with physical challenges, her mind remained clear and strong allowing her to continue doing things she enjoyed crocheting, knitting, bowling, armchair exercises, bingo and playing Rummy O - of which she won most games. Mom was a talented seamstress and it was always a pleasure to see the beautiful things that she’d have hanging in her sewing room. Many a bride and her attendants, wore gowns made by Mom. She was also clever at making alterations, if something didn’t fit just right, Mom would put her pincushion onto her wrist a few straight pins into her mouth and within minutes she’d have it pinned and stitched to perfection. Handy with her hands, Mom loved trying out all kinds of crafts, and we are fortunate to have things she handmade as keepsakes, whether it’s a crocheted doily or blanket, a beautiful ceramic figurine or a knitted dishcloth, we will treasure them. No one ever left Mom’s home hungry, she enjoyed cooking and baking and was interested in trying out new recipes. Our family always looked forward to her cream puffs, crab chip dip and her specialty, kooka. In Mom’s kitchen there was always enough for 'one more.' Mom so enjoyed visitors and in these last few years when speech was more difficult for her, she would welcome each and every one by reaching for their hand and placing it against her cheek. While we are saddened by our Mother’s death we celebrate her long life and feel so lucky to have had her as part of our lives for such a long time. She will remain forever in our hearts and memories. Anne’s family: Joyce (Don), Len (Marge), Jacqueline and Sharon, seven grandchildren and twelve great grandchildren. Special thanks to Father Nicholas, Dr. Kuhn, Bevan Lodge and the kind, caring staff at Worthington Pavilion. Interment Ocean View Burnaby

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: A truly romantic month begins July 22. Two years of slow slogging in work end, but your relationships begin a two-year phase of sobriety and “slow movement.” Now to late 2012, if you take an antagonistic approach the best you’ll win is freedom; you’ll lose in most else. Until October 2012, these do not work: chasing love for ego reasons, seeking recognition, fame, trying to optimistically sell to new clients. These do work: loyalty (e.g., old clients, present spouses) romance with other generations, career partnerships, cooperation. Tuesday night: understanding brings joy! Taurus April 20-May 20: Remain flexible, curious, restless and talkative until mid-week. You could obtain a last-minute agreement Sunday-Tuesday. Secrets, investments, intimacy, lifestyle choices are important and fortunate Tuesday eve/night. But be cautious with these Wednesday/Thursday. Thursday begins a month of home-related, security, family, property and similar themes (gardening, landscaping, nutrition, kid’s welfare, etc.) This week also begins 26 months of slowness in work, employment, machinery and health zones. Kids will be more work. Rewards come from hard work. Avoid lawsuits. You’ll be fine! Gemini May 21-June 20: Thursday begins a fourweek period of heightened communications, travel, restlessness and casual friendships. You’ll generally love this time. Be curious, ask questions, go exploring, open newspapers. Now to October 2012, your loves and pleasures meet sobriety. Romance, hobbies, sports, risk-taking, creative projects and the pursuit of pleasure – all become harder, slower. But this area can succeed if you’re prepared to be responsible and loyal. Romance could flower with an older or younger person. You’ll succeed in research, investments, sex and health. This week’s future plan is wrong.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Chase romance, pleasure, beauty and creative or sports success Sunday to Tuesday – you’ll ride a winning streak! Jobs begun Tuesday night will succeed. Thursday begins a productive four-week phase of earnings, spending, memory and other possessions. But this week also begins 26 months of increased responsibility in domestic arenas, with kids, property, security, nutrition and all foundational concerns. You’ll have to work harder at these, and you might decide to let go of some situations (or relationships) that are just too much work. This week’s “career partnership” idea won’t work. Wait.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: No fireworks, but this week is a turning point. Now to October 2012, you will be more sober, practical, no-nonsense. You will be determined to put your life on a sound foundation, especially in real estate, family and similar areas. Yes, retirement’s coming! You’ll do this slowly and carefully. A major or basic change might be involved: e.g., relocation. Relationships need to be looked at. If you’ve been a party type, that ends for two years. Thursday starts a month of travel, talk, friends, errands. Be curious! DON’T start a relationship or negotiations this week; one might end.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22:You travel a lucky money streak (to Aug. 6) so take advantage, buy luxury items, ask for a pay raise, negotiate a deal, etc. DON’T overspend. Money can flow through you like water, and you could end up poorer, despite taking more in! (If you’re into self-knowledge, look at the underlying reasons: Guilt? Lack of optimism?) Your weeks of weariness end Thursday, when a month of energy, charisma, effectiveness and clout begin! However, this isn’t a good week to start major projects. A romantic notion ends. The two years ahead slow communications, yet make this a fertile employment field.

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Mellow yields to functional. Thursday ends weeks of fairly relaxed pondering, love, cultural pursuits, understanding and begins a month of ambition, prestige and career effort. Dress well, be prepared to meet bosses, higher-ups. But don’t start any work projects yet – wait until next week. This week ends two years of restricted socializing. Now to October 2012 you’ll meet fairly easy progress in many areas. However, dealings with government agencies, institutions and head office might be burdensome – more red tape, more communication levels with which to deal: effort needed.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Every party must end, every high note yield to a quieter one. Have your fun (and travel, contact people) Sunday to Tuesday. Be domestic, rest up mid-week. (Real estate, kids’ savings plans are lucky Tuesday night.) Thursday begins a month of quietude, rest and retreat. However, a bunch of social influences will keep you interactive: your graciousness will continue; but your smouldering sexuality will yield to talkativeness. Still, get your rest. Contemplate, plan, do charitable things, deal with government agencies. DO NOT invest, change your life, or “start sex” this week.

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Lie low, work in the background Sunday to Tuesday. Think about your future, and how to get there. Your energy returns Tuesday eve to Thursday – but this is not a good week to start any project – or romance. Work on what’s already started, on research, finances, health, intimacy and safety. Thursday begins a month of mellow love and understanding, intellectual prowess, higher education, far travel, cultural involvements. Two years of hard career burdens end now; but two years of sober social activity begin, involving other generations or money (e.g., take the boss golfing).

July 18 - 24 Capricorn Dec.22-Jan.19: Relationships move from centre-stage to “under-stage” – they begin to operate secretly, subconsciously, or intimately. In business, you move from negotiation to actual funding. You bond more deeply, or break apart. This, for the month ahead. The present week brings another turning point: two years of philosophical outlook, of learning or studying situations, ends. A two-year career, ambition, prestige and status phase, the most important in 30 years, begins. Live up to it! Start nothing this week except a security or realty deal. Happiness, Sunday-Tuesday! Power, energy late week. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: At last, a month of weariness and drudgery ends – so do two years of financial restrictions! The weeks ahead bring fresh horizons, competition, opportunities, fights and loves, negotiation and litigation. The rancour and intensity of last winter and spring has fled, so if you’re in a fight, it’s possible to work out a deal; if you don’t, August/September could bring a lawsuit, a long, dreary, unprofitable one. If you aren’t fighting, the weeks ahead bring exciting meetings, intimate affections, sweet whispers. Careful with your speech this week: stray words return to bite. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The past two years have brought restrictions, even disappointment in relationships. If you’ve succeeded, found love or fine partners, healed bonds, it has only come through hard work. Now, this phase ends. The two years ahead (to October 2012) transfer this need for “hard work” to your sexual and financial spheres. You can truly achieve your dreams in these areas – if you work hard to that end. Nothing comes of nothing. The month ahead features work, heath and machines. Be wise Sunday-Tuesday, ambitious mid-week, social Friday/ Saturday. Don’t spend big, nor start a money project. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014

Jr. Cards are on a title quest

Heat fans are at the mercy of the Flames

Past disappointments has team on a mission

CAM TUCKER

Inside Sports

T

he Abbotsford Junior Cardinals have been so close each of the past two B.C. Junior Premier Baseball League championships, but came away empty handed. In each of the past two years, the team had rolled into the provincial tournament as the No. 1 seed, but was hunted down both times by the Coquitlam Jr. Redlegs, the two-time defending champs. The Jr. Cards kick off the tournament today (12:30 p.m. Mackie Park, North Delta) against the Victoria Jr. Eagles as the No. 3 seed after finishing the regular season with a record of 24-16, and despite and up-and-down finish to the schedule, head coach Corey Eckstein likes his team’s chances. “We’ve been in every ball game,” he said on Tuesday afternoon before his team hit the field in preparation for this weekend. “All of our losses this year have been onerun games for the most part and I thought we’ve battled for all seven innings for each game. “We’ve proven we can beat anybody in this league and we have to take that mindset going into this weekend. We have three of the best starting pitchers in the league, and our best against their best, I’ll take our team any day.” While the Jr. Cards are the team to beat today against Victoria, they are no longer the team every other squad is gunning for. That title belongs to the Langley Jr. Blaze, who lost just 11 times all season. Although Eckstein admitted there isn’t as much pressure on his team this year, but nothing will come easy. “You would like to say it would help,” he chuckled about coming is as No. 3 in the league. “There’s a little more pressure going in the last two years because every team is gunning for you, but by all means we’re going to be

playing some good clubs. . .and we’ll see how it goes.” The Jr. Cardinals will also have the benefit of home-field advantage on Saturday. Due to field restrictions and no lighting system at Mackie Park in North Delta, half of Saturday’s tournament schedule has been moved to Delair Park, where last year’s championship weekend was held. “We’ll see if home-field advantage plays a role,” said Eckstein. Abbotsford will play twice at Delair Park on Saturday. The first game will be at 12:30 p.m., the second at 5:30 p.m. against the North Shore Jr. Twins. The championship game goes Sunday at 3 p.m. from Mackie Park.

bbotsford Heat fans are well aware that their local American Hockey League team is literally at the mercy of the Calgary Flames. Yes, the Flames are as detestable as cough syrup on a hot day in these parts - Vancouver Canucks territory - but the Heat have begun to lay the foundations for a strong, loyal fanbase as the franchise is set to enter its second year in the league this fall. Unfortunately, if you’re a Heat fan, that requires a thick skin when it comes to some of the moves Flames general manager Darryl Sutter and his staff have made in recent weeks regarding the farm club. After all, it’s difficult to pinpoint exactly what benefit there is in the Flames trading Jason Jaffray, the Heat’s leading scorer this past season and a perennial 20-goal scorer in the AHL since 2005, last week to the Anaheim Ducks in

exchange for 2007 firstround draft-pick Logan MacMillan. MacMillan, who was loaned to the Heat by the Ducks organization, played in just seven games with Abbotsford this season, mainly as a fourth-line energy guy and didn’t register a point. He had just six in 30 games in the ECHL. You do the math. Now granted, MacMillan has faster, livelier legs than Jaffray. But in terms of hockey sense, it’s a runaway. Jaffray is more than a few miles ahead in this department. Then homegrown David Van der Gulik signs with the Colorado Avalanche after falling off the radar in Calgary. From a marketing perspective, this might work against the Heat given Van der Gulik’s popularity with the local fans and the community. From an on-ice perspective, Van der Gulik finished second on the team in scoring and was a reliable two-way player who had a knack for the timely goal (recall the winning tally versus the Grand Rapids Griffins back on Apr. 2 with a minute remaining, to secure a Calder Cup playoff

ticket for the Heat). Starting goalie David Shantz was recently scooped out of the free agent market by the Manitoba Moose. Kiss him goodbye. Mikael Backlund looks primed to take a spot in the NHL, as does Brett Sutter since the restricted free agent was tendered a contract back on July 2. David Shantz is now gone to Manitoba. Brett Palin made an exit on a two-way deal to Nashvilleboth to free agency. And there will be more. With just under two months left until the Heat open the season, that’s a lot of turnover to a team that lost 450-man games to injury last year. Credit head coach Jim Playfair with getting the team into the second round of the playoffs, but what are the odds he can do that again? Now, it should be mentioned that the first job of the Calgary Flames management is not to produce a Calder Cup winner in Abbotsford. It’s to produce a Stanley Cup winner in Calgary. see HEAT, page A35

Will that turn into a winner? Who knows? Unfortunately that’s the price you pay in the minor leagues. The big club runs the show, the farm team makes due. That’s the way it is. Sure, one could make the argument that it’s selfish to want to keep key veterans in Abbotsford in order to produce a winning team. After all, the mantra of the local ownership group from Day One was for the Heat, while still an affiliate of the Flames, to gain its own identity in

HEAT, from page A34 Also the likes of Jaffray and Van der Gulik, among others, would much rather go to an organization that gives them the best chance to play in the NHL. Both seemed to have realized their time with the Flames organization, Heat and all, was finished. These moves are a part of the business, and from the Flames perspective, this gives the organization a chance to insert youth.

Taylor won’t make another run at the Masters Abbotsford’s Nick Taylor won’t be repeating the impressive run he went on at last year’s U.S. Amateur Public Links Championship. Taylor dropped his first-round match Wednesday. He lost in the final of last year’s tournament.Taylor was among 64 players who advanced to the match play portion of the tourney after two days of stroke-play qualifying. The winner of the U.S. Amateur Public Links tourney normally receives an invitation to play in the following year’s Masters tournament in Augusta, Ga. – WITH FILES FROM THE VANCOUVER SUN

Outlaws take gold The Abbotsford Outlaws Peewee 97B girls’ fastpitch team did Canada proud last weekend, as they took gold at a tournament in Maryville, Wash. The Outlaws were the only Canadian team representing

their age group and were pitted against 17 squads from the United States. The Outlaws now compete today and through the weekend for the B.C. provincial championship at Squint Park, in Burnaby. – STAFF REPORTER

for the world championships certainly appeals to head coach Allison McNeil and team captains Teresa Gabriele and Kim Smith, all three of whom are from this province. “This is a really exciting summer for me and the women’s team,” said Smith in a statement issued by Canada Basketball. “In my 10 years on the national team I have had the chance to play in Canada only once before. This summer we have the opportunity to bring in not one but two national teams. It really is our dream as a women’s team to get a chance to compete in our home country. We want the chance to show what we can do. We have made some great strides and we’re looking to turn some heads this summer.” Anyone interested in tickets can call 604-859-1721 or visit the Abbotsford Visitor Centre (3461 Delair Road).

The Canadian Senior Women’s basketball team will kick off a four-game exhibition schedule, which runs July 17 to 29, against Chile and Sweden in preparation for the upcoming International Basketball Federation’s World Championships that runs Sept. 23 to Oct. 3 in the Czech Republic. Canada will take on Chile tomorrow from the Envision Centre where the host nation for this exhibition tournament has been training for the past few weeks. The two teams will square off once again two nights later at the Richmond Olympic Oval. The Canadians will then host Sweden at the Envision Centre on July 27 before finishing the tournament at the Oval on July 29. The opportunity to come home to B.C. and prepare

Abbotsford. How else do you do that than by winning? Unfortunately some of that falls on the shoulders of the Flames brass, and given their recent track record, there’s not a lot of reason to be optimistic.

here there’s smoke, there’s fire . . . and with this week’s new anti-arson initiative, emergency crews hope there’s a phone call too. The Abbotsford’s police and fire departments are working with a newly created map documenting locations targeted during a rash of fires started over the past three months. There have been 27 suspicious blazes between April 10 and July 10, with 12 of those fires occurring at local schools and parks. Angela Scott, a youth squad officer with the APD, said along with the school fires, witnesses have seen young people fleeing the areas where the fires were set. see FIRES, page A7

he SUV belonging to a missing Alberta couple heading to Abbotsford was spotted in Prince George Tuesday, according to RCMP. Const. Gary Godwin said the vehicle description and licence plate number given to police by a couple who came into the Prince George RCMP detachment Tuesday around 2 p.m. matched those of the missing 2006 Hyundai Tucson belonging to Lyle and Marie Ann McCann from St. Albert, Alta. “They described the vehicle

and gave a partial licence plate, but enough numbers to fit it with [the missing] vehicle, and that it was driving slowly in a particular area of town,” he said. He described the area in question as “the bowl,” or central area of Prince George. The McCanns were heading to Abbotsford to pick up their daughter at the airport before starting a family holiday. They were last seen July 3 in a security video, fuelling their 1999 Gulfstream motor home at a gas station in St. Albert, Alta., a few kilometers northwest of Edmonton. Their RV was found ablaze two days later, hidden up a logging access road near a campsite out-
