Chief pleads guilty to sex crime BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
Second time Jimmy George has been found guilty
ereditary Chief Jimmy George of the Aitchelitz band pleaded guilty to one count of sexual interference with a person under the age of 16 in court on Monday. George faced one charge in connection with incidents dating from March 1 and March 24 this year. This is not the first sexual assault charge where George has been found
guilty. In 2006, he stepped down as head of the society that runs Xyolhemeylh Child and Family Services, which provides child protection to native bands, after it was made public he was sentenced to three years in jail for sexual assaults on one or more Chilliwack girls in the 1980s. When the sexual assault charges were made public in June, George was suspended from his board
of directors position at the Sto:lo Nation Society. His photo and information have now been removed from the website, but Sto:lo Nation Society president Joe Hall did not respond before press time as to George’s status. In 2008—between his previous convictions and this latest one— George was front-and-centre at the ceremony for the Stehiyaq Healing
and Wellness Village with Premier Gordon Campbell and other First Nation leaders after the presentation of a cheque for $1.5 million. Stehiyaq is a healing centre aimed at Aboriginal youth with addiction problems located in the Chilliwack River Valley at the location of what was a youth correctional facility and before that was a traditional First Nations village site. The official
opening was in April. Despite the optics of his tour of Stehiyaq with the Premier in 2008, Hall said George had no involvement with Stehiyaq. “Jimmy is a chief of the Aitchelitz First Nation, which is a member of the Ch-ihl-kway-uhk Tribe Society,” Hall told theTimes in June. “The society was involved in putting together the healing and wellness village, but he is not a part of the board.” George will next appear in court for sentencing Sept. 17.

1990 Police armed and ready
Local police became better armed in their fight against drunk driving. The Chilliwack RCMP became fully trained in the finer points of a new and portable hand-held alcohol breathalyser. The small units called Alcometers gave police a pretty good idea of whether or not someone had reached the point of intoxication—but it didn’t give an exact reading of how much alcohol was in a person’s system.

A worker trims grass from around monuments at Chilliwack Cemeteries where, owners have recently cracked down on removing objects placed by families. BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
eth Sorensen was distraught when her teenaged son died four years ago, but she was comforted in some small way by a few personal objects she put on his grave. There was a large rock painted with tulips in a plant pot, another rock painted yellow with a smiley face, and a plastic solar dragonfly. But the things she placed on her son’s grave at Chilliwack Cemeteries on Little Mountain were suddenly gone when her husband went for a visit on Father’s Day. Her son died when he was almost 16 and was buried in spring 2006. He had a metabolic condition, was “fully disabled” and passed away in his sleep, according to Sorensen. “Today I feel like I’m in a black hole,” she told the Times. “I’m feeling just as crappy as when he passed away.” The owners of Chilliwack Cemeteries Inc. recently cracked down on the placement of objects on graves and everything was cleared off the 17.5 acres of grass, and placed in a pile. Af Sorensen said she was told that, after a
mistake Cemetery’s policy angers already upset parents
while, everything was put in a dumpster and then taken away. “I’m furious and then I’m distraught,” she said. “Shouldn’t they at least . . . had anything been said. . . . Why weren’t families notified?” The cemetery rules outlined in the purchase agreement signed by Sorensen state that nothing is allowed to be placed on or near the graves with the exception of flowers in an approved vase holder.

“When you are in the process of burying somebody that you have just lost, purchasing a grave site, who reads that stuff?” she asked. “And if you do read it, who remembers it? I remember very little of four years ago.” But cemetery manager Bev Van Winkle defended the removal of items from graves. “Do you know what happens when a lawnmower picks up a rock and fires it at a piece of granite?” Van Winkle responded when asked why items were removed. She added that the owners prefer to keep an open cemetery so there is no one to monitor what people do out on the 17.5-acre hillside property. “We had people coming up and we didn’t stop them,” she said. “We kept stretching the rules and stretching the rules. . . . You give people an inch and they take 10 miles.” Van Winkle said that because the cemetery has been around since 1873 and there are 15,000 graves, it is impossible to notify every single owner of rules that they should already know. She said the cemetery has four employees that work 7.5 hours a day, five days a week, taking care of the lawns and that for safety sake they
can’t be worrying about glass, plastic, rock or other objects that could be hit by trimmers or mowers. “We can’t take the chance on one of our men or the public being hurt,” she said. But Sorensen doesn’t understand after four years, why the crackdown happened so suddenly. She said she was told by Van Winkle that one of the owners came up and told the manager the cemetery had turned into “a garbage heap.” Van Winkle did say one of the owners, whose name she declined to give, came up and asked “how did it get like this?” and ordered staff to, from then on, remove everything from graves as soon as they are placed. On the purchase agreement it says: “The company is not obligated to give notice of removal or disposition of any articles.” Sorensen still thinks the matter was dealt with insensitively and that there are likely other upset families. “The area that my son is buried in is a newer part and there are very young children that had been buried,” she said. “There were trinkets, toy cars, favourite things that they played with . . . who knew?”

Green light for second turf field
City and school district partner to add artificial and lighted turf field to new CSS
BY TIFFANY CRAWFORD Vancouver Sun
BY CORNELIA NAYLOR firstname.lastname@example.org If you build it, they will come. Nowhere in Chilliwack has that been truer than the Townsend artificial turf field “You wouldn’t believe how much that field gets used,” said Chilliwack Minor Football (CMF) president Wayne Bjorge of the two-year-old facility. Especially during the busy fall season when football and soccer are in full swing, it’s hard to get a field hockey stick in edgewise. Relief, however, is on the way. At a special Board of Education meeting Tuesday, Chilliwack trustees unanimously approved a City of Chilliwack-School District 33 agreement that will see a lighted, synthetic turf field added to plans for the new Chilliwack senior secondary school. City council approved the agreement at a meeting July 5. T h e a n n o u n c e m e n t i s g re a t news for the 1,600-player Chilliwack Soccer Association, which has been squeezing the most out of its Townsend practice times by splitting the field into six sections allowing six teams to practice at the same time. “It doesn’t give them a great deal of training space,” said head coach Glenn Wilson. Although the 70-metre-by-110metre swath of synthetic turf at Chilliwack secondary will be lined for soccer and field hockey and not football, the 360 kids registered with Chilliwack Minor Football also stand to benefit. “It’s huge for us here to have a second field,” said Bjorge. “It takes a lot of pressure off Townsend.” For legendary Chilliwack secondary field hockey coach Barb Kroeker,
Off-duty transit cop wins appeal in drunk driver case

The rebuilt Chilliwack senior secondary school is slated for a similar lighted synthetic turf field for the summer of 2012. who has been hounding the school district for artificial turf since 1986, the agreement is a dream come true. For years she has had to schlepp her team and their gear to wherever she could find synthetic turf—first to Cloverdale Athletic Park and then to Townsend. “The sport has been played on turf for the last 15 years,” she said. “It’s been such a godsend to have Townsend, but being able to just drag our stuff from the equipment room to the field is going to be fantastic.” It’s not just about convenience either; Kroeker expects playing at home will also raise the sport’s profile at the school and in the city. The agreement endorsed by the school board Tuesday will see the city invest more than $1.3 million in sport- and recreation-related infrastructure (i.e. sports fields, tennis courts, playgrounds) at Yarrow elementary and Rosedale elementary/ middle. In exchange, the school district has agreed to provide the city with a dedicated 200-square-metre multi-
purpose space in the new Rosedale school and a lighted synthetic turf field at Chilliwack secondary. Since the field will cost an estimated $1.8 million, the agreement will see the school district put out a net $600,000—a bargain for a new artificial turf field, according to secretary treasurer Ray Velestuk. “We’re getting a synthetic field for a third of the price,” he said. In an agreement much like the one that governs the Sardis secondary track, the school district will have exclusive use of the field from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on days when school is in session, and the city will have exclusive use at all other times. For sports events after hours and on days when school is not in session, schools will be able to book the field at no cost Depending on which design-build team is picked to build the new Chilliwack secondary school, the field will take one of two shapes— with a running track or without. The city’s parks and recreation department has worked closely
with the district during the Request for Proposal (RFP) process, sharing expertise they gained on the Townsend project. “They’re good at building schools but don’t know much about artificial turf fields,” said parks and recreation manager Gord Pederson of the district, “and we’ve already been through that process, so we’ve been able to help them out.” The new Chilliwack secondary is scheduled for completion by the summer of 2012, but some community sports groups report rumours that the field could be in place before construction on the school is finished. Although he is anxious to see the extra field in place, Bjorge hopes the district won’t cut corners when it comes to quality. He says spending money up front —like the city did at Townsend — will save the district in the long run through reduced wear and tear on grass fields and a longer-lasting synthetic field. “It’s a smarter investment,” he said.
n a potential precedent setting case, an off-duty transit police officer who was harmed while trying to stop a drunk driver in Chilliwack will get worker’s compensation after the Canadian Office and Professional Employees’ Union won an appeal at a Workers Compensation tribunal. The tribunal agreed with the union’s argument that police officers swear an oath to protect the peace and that sometimes police officers will intervene in a crime, even if they are not on shift, COPE said, in a news release Monday. It’s a decision that will set a precedent for all police officers in the province. The compensation board appeal tribunal overturned an earlier decision and ruled that the South Coast British Columbia Transit Authority officer is entitled to benefits. “This constable placed himself in harm’s way to protect the public, even though he was off duty, and we are pleased that this courageous act has not only been recognized as compensable under the WCB, but also that the constable has received the recognition that he deserves,” said Andy Ross, president of COPE local 378. In 2008, the officer was off duty when he saw an intoxicated driver in Chilliwack. He called 911 and identified himself as a transit officer, then followed the man because the operator said they would not be able to send officers quickly.

Sto:lo will set nets despite DFO warning McNeil says green light for ‘sporties’ is his signal to fish BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
ensions are rising among some local Sto:lo bands told to wait until July 26 to set nets for a dry-rack sockeye fishery while sports fishers are being given the green light. Tyrone McNeil, a Sto:lo Tribal Council vice-president, tribal chief and fisherman, said he was told during a conference call Thursday by Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) representatives that sports fishers will be allowed to fish chinook with no gear restrictions on the Fraser River starting Friday. The recreational opening is not for sockeye but McNeil said the gear “free-for-all” means other fish will be inadvertently snagged and sockeye will be killed. “So they are going to be bottombouncing, snagging and DFO isn’t concerned about it whatsoever yet they want to restrict us up the

Tyrone said he is frustrated DFO has allowed for a recreational chinook fishery with no gear restrictions to start Friday. ying-yang,” he told the Times. “It just doesn’t make sense. They say their primary concern is ensuring as many Early Stuart get up the river as possible, yet thousands and
thousands of sporties will be out with any tackle that they want.” A DFO spokesperson responded via e-mail that the recreational opening is for chinook, with size
limits, and confirmed that there are no gear restrictions for the sports fishery. DFO has told First Nations there is currently no fishing to be direct-
ed at sockeye and that if dry-rackers put down their nets before July 26 they may be charged. On Thursday afternoon, McNeil was hoping to get authorization from area chiefs to respond to DFO’s recreational opening, but many chief were in Victoria for the provincial government’s official Salish Sea naming. McNeil said if the river opens up to unrestricted sports fisheries Friday, “that is basically a green light for Sto:lo to set their nets.” “Nothing against the sporties but be mindful of the Constitution and Supreme Court decisions that say our needs need to be met first.” While tensions are already high early in the sockeye season, the forecast is for more than 11 million fish to return this year. Given last year’s call for 10 million sockeye, while less than two million showed up, most observers say they’ll believe it when they see it. “Although the Stuart returns are healthy because the pre-season forecasts are 41,000 and are now up to 110,000 and climbing, is that indicative the subsequent runs will perform in a similar fashion? That the runs will be large and healthy and terrific fisheries to come?” asked Ernie Crey, fisheries advisor to the Sto:lo Tribal Council. “I hope so but it’s too early to say.”

Thieves pull dirty trick BY TYLER OLSEN firstname.lastname@example.org
wo children who were to take their first spin on a dirt-bike track are still waiting for their first ride after thieves stole more than $100,000 worth of dirt bikes Thursday. Police say, sometime between midnight and 5 a.m., a Ford cube van pulling a trailer with 15 Honda dirt bikes was stolen from the Travelodge parking lot. The bikes had been brought to Chilliwack for Big Top Powersports’ Junior Red Rider’s Camp Day on Thursday for children between the ages of six and 12. Just hours after the vehicle was reported stolen, police recovered the trailer off an embankment near Bridal Falls. But the cube van and the dirt bikes are still missing. RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck RESCUE, from page 1 young rescuers and a pair of other locals, the story had a happier ending. With her friends gone for help, Joseph Chapman and Warren Point saw Victor alone on a rock and swam across the river to help the girl, who by that time was breathing, but unresponsive and sliding into hypothermia. Help arrived in the form of a police helicopter and Kent Search and Rescue personnel. “One of the Search and Rescue members got on scene and started administering first aid right away,” said Wolbeck. “They were instrumental in getting her into the helicopter quickly.” They, along with a member of the helicopter’s crew, strapped Victor to a back board that was lifted into the hovering chopper.
told the Times that police are trying to figure out how the thieves moved the dirt bikes after the trailer was ditched. Big Top’s Krystal Bowman told the Times that seven families had signed up for the camp. And while Big Top was able to contact five of the families Thursday morning, two families—one from the Sunshine Coast, the other from North Vancouver—only learned of the camp’s cancellation upon arrival in Chilliwack. For two bikers, the camp was to be their first time atop a motorcycle. “It weighs a little heavy to see the disappointment on the kids’ faces,” said Bowman. “Some thieves have taken away what would have been a wonderful day for these kids.” All is not lost, however; Bowman said Honda plans to replace the bikes and hopes to have another camp planned by the end of the summer.
Chopper needed After the dramatic rescue, Victor was transferred to an air ambulance and flown to RoyalColumbianHospitalinNewWestminster, where her condition is listed as stable. “All of the people involved in this incredible rescue should be called heroes,” said Wolbeck. “They all acted selflessly in order to save the life of another person. We are very grateful that there was not another tragedy to have to report. It was truly an amazing rescue.” Wolbeck said people should remember that many local bodies of water are still very cold and pose more dangers than just drowning. “I don’t think people often consider the temperature of water when they’re in it,” said Wolbeck.

Law and order at its best
wo or three times a year I get to witness a priceless moment at the Tsawwassen ferry terminal. Someone who has a one- or two-sailing wait sees an opportunity and cuts into the lane of traffic boarding the next ferry. He usually gets no further than a half dozen car lengths before he’s intercepted by staff and removed from the lane of boarding traffic. Regardless of whatever excuse or sense of urgency he might plead, he’s then ordered to the very end of the line. He doesn’t get to reclaim his original place in line. He has to go to the very end and likely now has to endure yet another sailing wait. The best part is all the other travellers cheering and honking their horns in approval as his just desserts are handed out. This is how justice should work. Someone breaks the rules and they are immediately pounced upon and justice is swift. It’s highly improbable a person would try to cut into the boarding lane again after having gone through this humiliating experience. Similarly, anyone who watches this spectacle would no doubt be thinking twice about ever pulling such a stunt. None of us enjoy sitting in line at the ferry terminal, especially
Crime Matters on a hot day. Some of the most miserable three-hour blocks of my life have been spent trying to pass the time until boarding. No doubt it’s tempting to think about jumping the queue so obviously there have to be some rules in place. It’s a shame the people responsible for running the courts and administering criminal justice in this country can’t grasp the simplicity and effectiveness of how BC Ferries maintains order on busy sailing days. Imagine what would happen if BC Ferries had the same approach to enforcing its rules as the justice system. People would be able to jump the queue with little more than a warning from staff not to do it again. The rest of us would see that’s there are no consequences for breaking the rules and wonder why we should patiently sit and wait while others simply cut into the line. If someone was actually intercepted by staff he would be able to offer up
some lame excuse about a pressing appointment or what have you and be allowed to jump the que anyway. Needless to say, it would be absolute pandemonium and carnage come time to board the next sailing as hundreds of motorists attempt to cut in and staff would be helpless to do anything about it. Meanwhile, civil libertarians and academics would be howling that we need to legalize queue jumping. Yet this is precisely how criminal justice operates in this country. Perhaps those in charge of administering justice might care to take a look at how BC Ferries maintains order and keeps the peace despite dealing with thousands of frustrated and often angry travelers. There’s a very valuable lesson to be learned here. It’s not unprecedented that the courts would adopt a strategy or program from an outside agency. After all, our modern day justice system seems to be based on the Department of Fisheries and Oceans’ “catch and release” policy. ◗ John Martin is a criminologist at the University of the Fraser Valley.

Twenty-three per cent. That’s the proportion of B.C. residents who now support Premier Gordon Campbell’s Liberal government, according to poll results released last Tuesday. It’s a shockingly low number, and pollsters are attributing it, at least in part, to voters’ anger over the HST. To put the numbers in perspective, the Liberals have now lost half their popular support since 46 per cent of B.C. voters cast a ballot for the party during the May 2009 election. Mario Canseco, vice-president of public affairs for Angus Reid Public Opinion, called the drop “monumental.” “We thought [the party’s ranking in June] was low, but now they’re at 23 [per cent] in July, so it’s definitely related to the HST, which has been remarkably unpopular all throughout B.C.,” Canseco said. That the Liberals are taking a hit in the polls is not surprising. Results show that 30 per cent of B.C. residents believe the new tax will severely affect their household finances. Seventy per cent of 801 online poll participants indicated they will dine out less often as a result of the HST, while 62 per cent plan to attend fewer concerts or sporting events. Sixty per cent plan to spend less time at movies or the theatre, 55 per cent plan to buy fewer newspapers or magazines and 49 per cent indicated they will pay fewer visits to the dry cleaner. Whether those plans last past the first few weeks of cash register shock over the HST remains to be seen. But it’s clear that something about the tax—that it applies to so many items, that it’s coming at a time when people already feel overtaxed, or even that it was implemented in a dishonest way—has shaken up B.C. politics. We’ll all be watching to see if that translates into a change at the ballot box.

Just the appearance of fighting crime Editor: Tyler Olsen is way off target in his defence of the body armour ban (Win, Lose or Ty, Times, July 9). The government claims the ban is aimed at gangs and organized crime but gangsters could care less about toothless laws. Last I checked drug dealing, packing guns and murdering people were all banned too but it doesn’t seem to have stopped them, has it? How making a cabbie, bouncer or any non-criminal for that matter, ask for special permission (and paying for the privilege to boot) to get body armour is going to make us safer is something I haven’t figured out yet. Is this about crime and public safety or is it just another layer of bureaucracy we get to pay for without any benefit? I suggest that if the government is really concerned about crooks in body armour they make wearing it while committing a serious crime worth a number of years in jail on top of the initial crime, and no plea bargaining either. Sadly, I doubt that will ever happen. I think this is much more about giving the appearance of fighting crime while really doing nothing at all. Dave Lanting Chilliwack
Savings won’t be passed on Editor: Dear Hon. Barry Penner: So, in reply to our e-mail question of June 18, you simply e-mailed to us Mr. Stephen Hume’s July 3 article. We had read the article, thanks anyways. It appears to us now that you are trying to cover the sun with your thumb and using the opinion of others to answer our questions about the benefits that the HST implementation will bring to us. Honestly, that’s not what we expected to hear from the individual we elected in our riding. Mr. Hume might be right, but he also belongs within the group of citizens that shrug their shoulders and, without a blink, meekly accepts the dirty tactics from our governing politicians, because, oh well, bottom line is that
their rather substantial and dreamy pensions. Do these people honestly work hard for their money? Maybe some do, maybe some do not. The truth of the matter is the more the government is allowed by people like Mr. Hume to suck from the pockets of taxpayers, the honesty soon becomes greed, with a capital “G”. Business will never pass their savings to the consumers. That is a dream that will never come true, and you know it. J.G. and A. Rhodes Chilliwack
View obscured from ivory tower Editor: This summer, interesting
news will be released that will delight supporters of the Return of the Interurban to the Fraser Valley. In the Metro region, we have placed all our hopes for rail transit on the very expensive light-metro model and philosophy, that forces all bus riders on a light-metro trunk line to their destinations or next transfer. Indeed TransLink admits that 80 per cent of SkyTrain’s customers, first take the bus to the metro. This is not good transit. TransLink has been signing hosannas that the newly opened Canada Line is carrying 94,000 people a day and nearing capacity. TransLink forgets to mention that nearly 45,000 former bus customers have been cascaded onto the new metro line which translates to about 90,000 trips a day. Only about two to three thousand new transit customers are using the over $2.5 billion metro system. The sad fact about the Canada Line is that due to escalating construction costs, the scope of the project was cut back so much that a much larger $1.5 billion cheaper LRT network, with much higher capacity, could have been built instead. The Light Rail Committee and the Rail For the Valley group, in conjunction with several transportation experts

will be offering a much cheaper and proven alternative to hugely expensive light-metro, in the form of TramTrain. TramTrain is simply a light rail vehicle that can operate on existing railways and on its own tracks, greatly reducing rail transit costs while at the same time providing a much larger light rail network. As an example; for the cost of a SkyTrain Evergreen Line, we could build a Vancouver to Chilliwack TramTrain and a Vancouver to Maple Ridge TramTrain. A larger rail network. servicing more destinations, at a cheaper cost should be number one TransLink’s planning goals. Sadly, what I see from the Ivory Towers on Kingsway is more of the same, plans for hugely expensive metro lines, with no realistic way to fund them. Malcolm Johnston Light Rail Committee

Editor: I received this e-mail and thought it might amuse Times’ readers. An Ontarian, an Islander and a British Columbian all die and go to hell.While there, they spot a red phone and ask what the phone is for. The devil tells them it is for calling back to Earth. The Islander asks to call Charlottetown and talks for five minutes.When he is finished the devil informs him that the cost is a $100, so the Islander writes him a cheque. Next the Ontarian calls Toronto and talks for 30 minutes.When he is finished, the devil informs him that the cost is $600, so the Ontarian writes him a cheque. Finally the B.C. guy gets his turn and talks for four hours. When he is finished the devil informs him that there would be no charge for the call and feel free to call B.C. anytime. When the Ontarian and the Islander hear this, they go ballistic and ask the devil why the B.C. guy got to call his home province free. The devil replied,“Since Campbell became premier of B.C., the province has gone to hell, so naturally it’s a local call.” Mike Hodge Chilliwack

It isn’t my fault
BY SCOTT STREET Chilliwack House Churches
as anyone else played the blame game recently? You know how that one goes. Something happens and everyone else begins to describe why they are not responsible for what they did or what happened. I have to say, it seems like the blame game is taking over from our other national sports (lacrosse officially, hockey by numbers). It seems to me that we have entered an unparalleled time in history where no one anywhere is responsible for anything that happens—ever. OK, that was a bit sarcastic, but I think you get my point. Now if you are like me, you have immediately jumped to all the people who do that in this world, and have conveniently left yourself off of that list.
This is an attitude I have to fight against all the time. So, why am I talking about this? I think that ownership and a failure to own ourselves and our actions is a problem for our society. Typically this lack of ownership seems more focused on mistakes than success. A lack of ownership in life is a problem because I think that failing to own our mistakes and shortcomings cheats us in life. My belief is that it forces us to live in a fantasy world that is unsustainable and keeps us from experiencing joy and fulfillment. In my personal experience, people
who work hard to own their success and failures in life, seem to generally have a better standard of life. Those who don’t, typically, are more frustrated, experience less joy and are typically more difficult to deal with. Where do you want to fit? This element of ownership is at the very core of Christianity and is the essential first step. It is an understanding that we do make mistakes that cause others, ourselves and our world harm. We then own those mistakes, and we admit that we do not have it within ourselves to live mistake free in life. The more traditional word for this is fairly well

known—sin. Not long ago, an acquaintance of mine said, “The quality of the life we lead is determined by the quality of the questions we ask.” So what does ownership look like lived out today? Here are a few questions to help you get started: Is there a chance that your boss is not a jerk, but that you are not a very good employee right now? So what can you do to be a better employee? Is it changing your attitude? Going the extra mile? Encouraging your boss instead of expecting him or her to encourage you? Is there a chance that you don’t feel your spouse or partner
has been supportive because you have not been supportive? Have you asked them what you could do to support them now? Have you communicated that you love them in their language, not yours? Are you not getting what you want in life because you aren’t really prepared to put the effort in? Are you lonely in life because you are selfish? May you have the courage to own yourself and your actions, your mistakes and your successes. May you have the courage to look deep inside yourself and ask the tough questions. ◗ Scott Street helps lead Chilliwack House Churches, a new network of house churches here in Chilliwack.

Job prospects brighten
hilliwack’s jobless rate dropped to its lowest since January and with a number of local companies hiring the employment picture may be improving. The unemployment rate went down a full percentage point from 11 per cent in May to 10 per cent in June, according to Statistics Canada’s labour force survey numbers released Friday. The January rate was 9.9 per cent before it shot up to 10.7 per cent in February and lingered around 11 per cent until last month. But that doesn’t mean more jobs were created in June. The number of employed persons actually dropped by 200 from 38,100 to 37,900 last month. The reason for the drop in the unemployment rate is that 700 people left the labour force (42,700 to 42,000). (The labour force is defined as those person who are employed or are actively looking for work.) The jobless rate continues to be high locally, but there are openings in town. Chilliwack’s largest employer, Stream Global Services, is almost always looking for workers and representatives recently attended a job fair organized by Triangle Community Resources in Chilliwack. “We’ve got a lot of new opportunities and we are hiring,” said Stream recruiter Liane Hoogenraad. “Since February, we’ve hired probably over 800 people here at Stream.” Hoogenraad said Stream is not having difficulty finding employees, but she is surprised to hear how high the unemployment rate is locally. “I really wish more of that 10 per cent would apply,” she said. “We see about 300 applicants
a month through our tracking system and in the month of July alone we have need to hire 120 people.” Hoogenraad said Stream will need more and more workers right into 2011. “My job as a recruiter is stable right now,” she said. Heather Cardell with Triangle said the job fair included Stream, Best Western, Prospera Centre and Value Village, and about 60 job seekers were in attendance. She plans on having another job fair in the fall and she sees good things on the horizon for local employment. “Absolutely with what you have coming in terms of big box stores,” she said. “Chilliwack is expanding rapidly in the whole retail market.” While many of these jobs are not necessarily high paying, Cardell says people need to know they are important. “People need to realize these entry level jobs lead to fulfilling careers if they are willing to accept that pay scale,” she said. Canadawide the unemployment rate dropped to 7.9 per cent in June, the first time it has been below the eight per cent mark since Jan. 2009. B.C.’s rate jumped from 7.5 per cent in May to 7.8 per cent in June. While things are improving in B.C. and across Canada, British Columbians have the highest level of job anxiety at 25 per cent, higher than the national average of 20 per cent, according to the RBC Canadian Consumer Outlook Index released on July 2. “While B.C. residents are positive about the current state of the economy and are loosening the purse strings a bit more, job security is still weighing on their minds and affecting their sense of financial well-being,” said Graham MacLachlan, regional president of RBC in B.C.

Ferrer conquers Falls Teen cards one-over par at Junior Divot finale
• • • •
elta’s Aaron Ferrer shot a scorching oneover-par 72 to outdistance the field Tuesday at The Falls Golf Course during the championship final of the Fred Wellsby Junior Divot Tour, sponsored by the Optimists Club of Chilliwack. Fa c i n g 1 4 o f t h e b e s t young golfers in the Lower Mainland, the 16-year-old Ferrer came out strong and was one-under through 12 holes. Players earned the right to take part in the invitationonly tournament by doing well at any of six tournaments played over the past two weeks. Chilliwack was well respresented, with local golfers finishing second, third and fourth. Steven Scurr, Chilliwack, earned the runner-up prize, with a solid and consistent round of 78. He was followed closely by Chilliwack’s Tristan Desjarlais, who shot a round of 79. Connor McLellan, also of Chilliwack, was hot on the heels of the top three. An eagle on the par-four sixth hole propelled McLellan to a round of 81 and a tie for fourth place with Richmond’s Alex Chen and Dewdney’s Jake Scarrow.

Nine-year-old Justin Yap watches his tee shot Tuesday at the Falls. Yap, the youngest player in the field, shot a remarkable 103. With McLellan, Scurr and Desjarlais all just 14 years old, the Chilliwack golfers should be tough to beat at next year’s event. In the 10-to-12 age category, 11-year-old Henry Lee shot a round of 78, including an even-par back nine, to claim victory. Hot on his heels were Surrey’s Sy Lovan, who shot a 79, and West Vancouver’s Andrew Wong,
who scored 82. This is the 17th year the Optimist Club has put on the tournament. “It was hugely successful,” said organizer Glenda Standeven. “It couldn’t have been nicer weather for the tournament.” On a related note, the club is currently seeking a new president as well as a new treasurer.

There will be haywagon rides, barbecues and trips to Omaha and a water park. Blue Giants right tackle Jacob Troyan told the Times that he and his teammates are “extremely excited” for the
trip. “It’s going to be a once-ina-lifetime exprience,” said Troyan, who will be making the trip with his mother. He and his teammates will be practising for the next several weeks to gear up for the competition. “I’m positive they’re pretty good,” he said. “They’re hard teams to face.”
Troyan is also looking forward to watching the Cornhuskers practice, even if he doesn’t know too much about the team. Smith says Troyan and his teammates will have their eyes opened when they see Memorial Stadium and the popularity of the Cornhuskers. “They won’t have seen anything like that here.” See GIANTS, Page 20

GIANTS, from page 15 Indeed, Smith and Roach both sound as excited as any player in regards to be meeting Osborne and visiting Memorial Stadium. “I’m like a kid too,” said Roach. “I’m so excited to go down there and be in the heartland of football. It’s like a Disneyland for me.” The trip, however, won’t come cheaply, so the Giants will be fundraising throughout this month and next. “There are lots of different economic situations when it comes to kids playing football,” he said. “We want all kids to have the opportunity to go.” ◗ The Giants will host a bottle drive Saturday at Watson elementary from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., a hotdog sale on July 23 outside Pricemart beginning at 11 a.m., and a pub night at Friendly Mike’s on July 24 with a silent auction.

With Abbotsford’s ace on the mound for his sixth inning of work, Cougar batters Scott Fitzsimmons and Nick Chenery were patient at the plate, and drew walks. Josh Ens took his second pitch between the shoulder blades to load the bases with no outs and knock the Abbotsford pitcher out of the game. A Mike Rogers RBI single to right field started adding to the Cougars run count. Blake Peeling knocked in the second run of the inning, reaching base on a fielders choice. And walks to Payton Nerbas and Derek Riediger set the stage for Matt Lamb who, with the bases loaded, two out and two strikes, stroked a clutch base hit up the middle to drive in the fourth and fifth runs of the inning and tie the score at nine.

‘Science’ in survey has group disputing effort BY TYLER OLSEN firstname.lastname@example.org
new Ministry of Forests report on Chilliwack River forest practices doesn’t impress a local community group concerned about proposed changes to valley tree farm licences. Glen Thompson, president of the Friends of the Chilliwack River Valley, told the Times that his group was unsatisfied with the level of effort that went into the 15-page report. “I wasn’t overly impressed with the science in it,” said Thompson, pointing to the fact that author Tom Millard’s report included no new fieldwork but rather summarized several publications that discussed the river valley. “The guy’s basically saying we looked at logging and it’s all good, but he conducted it sitting on his chair, sitting at his desk,” he said. “That’s kind of disturbing when they’re talking about landslides and human safety and the guy can’t be bothered to get in his car and go for a look.” The report was prompted by concerns about a proposed change by B.C. Timber Sales called Amendment 21, which would consolidate local forest district units. Thompson’s group has raised concerns about the effect the change would have on slope stability. The report concludes that “Forest operations that adhere to current regulations and practice will not result in harm to the Chilliwack River.” But Thompson said he found the first pag-
es of the report to be “quite shocking” and said Millard’s conclusions were “controversial.” He pointed to parts of the report that said early logging of riparian areas—which is now prohibited— and poor road building techniques contributed to an increased risk of landslides. “They seem to be saying that between the ’20s and the ’50s logging was terrible. Mind you, at the time during that entire period, the Ministry of Forests said the exact same thing they’re saying now: ‘Logging is perfectly fine,’” said Thompson “Does that mean 20 years from now they’ll be looking at today, saying it’s terrible and the third set of rules are really good? It seems sort of self-serving in a way.” That said, Thompson concedes that forest practices have improved considerably. But he said enforcement is still often prompted only by public complaints. “We’re not convinced there is no problem at all, although I would say [loggers] have improved quite a bit and we would encourage them to continue improving.” Thompson also wishes the report had addressed concerns about the potential for landslides around Post Creek. And he found a section that found logging did not contribute to flooding in January of 2009 to be superfluous. “It went on about the 2009 mudslides, which had nothing to do with forestry. Nobody ever said they did,” said Thompson. “You might as well have thrown the earthquake in Chile in there too.”

Classic car show honours tradition
hile it has become a tradition of its own, organizers of the annual Classic Car Show at Minter Gardens say it is also about retaining tradition. On Sunday, July 18, more than 100 classic automobiles in stellar condition will be on display during the annual Classic Car Show. The event, located at Minter Gardens, attracts hundreds of visitors each year and co-organizer Erin Minter says the gathering of vehicles has grown to become much more than a show and shine. “As you walk through the gardens you can hear people tell their own stories,” says Minter. “You’ll hear people saying ‘I remember having one of these in such-andsuch-year and we went to visit family,’ etc. It’s very cool to hear the dialogues it starts between friends and family while they share fond memories.” Minter says, tongue-incheek, that the classic car show gives a whole new meaning to the phrase “auto bonding.” This will be the eighth annual Classic Car Show and again the Fraser Valley British Motor Club is sponsoring the event. As in previous years, people can walk through the floral gardens and admire vehicles such as Austins, Rovers, Rolls Royce, Jaguars, Morris and Triumphs. Some unique additions this year include a Mayflower, a couple of vintage motor bikes and, as a special treat, the Thresherman’s Association will display three carriages each more than 100 years old, including a Burlington Victoria Royal Coach from the 1890s. This year’s feature car is a 1957 Chevrolet Belair convertible owned by Brian Chudyk of Surrey. “ We’v e re a l l y s t a r t e d to think more about and appreciate the fact that the Classic Car Show is all about history parked through-
out the gardens. It’s not just metal, engines, and bolts,” says Minter. “As technologies change and environmental issues become more prominent, what you see on the roads is changing. So each vehicle at the show is like a museum on wheels, and each exhibitor is a curator.” Vehicles are entered in eight different categories based on the origin and era of the car. A ninth Premier Class category features the first place winners of each category from the last two shows. There is also a People’s Choice award for the vehicle that visitors feel is the most outstanding addition to the show. Minter says the car show is a fun family event and people can either enter their own classic vehicle or get involved by voting for the People’s Choice award. The winner of the award earns the honour of becoming the Feature Car for next year’s show. That’s why it’s a great event where everybody can get involved, she adds. In addition to the class and People’s Choice awards, the Motor Club invites a special guest judge to visit and select his or her favourite. This summer, UFV President Dr. Mark Evered will make the selection. The car show has become a community event with local groups like the Threshermen’s Association involved, the Dixie 9 band will perform jazz 11:30 to 3:30., and the local Spinners and Weavers Guild will be on hand spinning some tales of their own throughout the day. ◗ The Classic Car Show takes place Sunday, July 18 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Minter Gardens. Admission, including tax, is $17 adults, $15 seniors, $9.50 youth, $6.50 child, and kids five years and younger are free. There is a family rate (for two adults and up to four dependent children), of $38. For group bookings, please call Jo-Ann at 604-792-3799.

Final weekend for Harrison Festival Song and poetry brings story of the Underground Railway to life
o far the 32nd annual Harrison Festival of the Arts has been blessed with great weather and has been a success all around. The final weekend is here and features Spanish band El Puchero del Hortelano, storyteller and singer Mary Jane Lamond, and one of the world’s finest harmonica players, Carlos del Junco each performing at the Memorial Hall. The beach stage features a number of great performances all weekend right nearby the art market on the beach. There is also the featured artist, Rhonda Simmonds, a Canadian assemblage artist who is presently living and creating at Ranger Station Art Gallery in Harrison Hot Springs as the 2009-2010 artist in residence. As part of the final weekend, the festival commissioned a special one-hour performance celebrating the Underground Railroad in Canada. Blues singer Diana Braithwaite, whose roots go back to the underground railroad, along with partner Chris Whiteley have pulled together some of Canada’s best blues and gospel musicians to create this exciting program. North to Canada is a joyful musical experience which celebrates, through song and poetry, the story of the Underground Railroad which brought escaping slaves into Canada. Blues, gospel and “code songs”
are featured in the hour-long concert that educates and entertains audiences. Six award-winning gospel and blues performers join together to present a soulful concert with narration. Each performer brings their unique voice and experience to the stage to tell how the Underground Railroad operated. Dubbed a “national treasure,” Braithwaite has developed a reputation as a world class blues singer and has worked with Albert Collins, John Lee Hooker and Jeff Healey. Braithwaite’s ancestors came to Canada on the Underground Railroad, leading to her interest in the role of music in history. With an extensive career on the blues scene, Whiteley was mentored by blues legend Lonnie Johnson and toured and recorded with Leon Redbone in the ‘70s. Singer, actor and guitarist Leon
Bibb is a classically trained baritone who made his name on Broadway as well as during the folk boom of the 1950s and ‘60s. Moving to Vancouver in the early ‘70s, Bibb became central to the city’s arts scene in shows like Jacques Brel… and The Candyman. Vancouver’s Juno-winning pianist Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne has been playing since the early ‘60s with notables like Jimmy Reed, Billy Preston and Sly & the Family Stone. Texas bluesman and 40-year music veteran Donald Ray Johnson is a Grammy and Maple Blues award winner now living in Calgary. Memphis born bassist Russell Jackson came to prominence playing with the B.B. King Orchestra and is now living in Vancouver. Songs featured in North to Canada include uplifting gospel, such as Let the Light from the Lighthouse
Shine on Me, and blues, such as Mystery Train. Original songs are included as well as the poignant spiritual Farther Along and the soulful ballad Ragin’ Storm. Each featured performer will present two songs and share in the telling of the story. Actor-vocalist Leon Bibb will also dramatize a poem by James Weldon Johnson. The concert will be performed twice at the festival on July 17 and 18. It will be presented on the festival’s outdoor beach stage which is free to the general public, reaching a wide audience. A more in-depth indoor workshop/demo/discussion will be held at 11 a.m. on July 18 facilitated by Braithwaite and Whiteley. ◗ For more information on North to Canada or the rest of the Harrison Festival of the Arts, see the website

Safeway employees, customers and the Canada Safeway Foundation raised over
during the month of June for research in the ﬁght against prostate cancer.
Funds raised from the June, 2010 campaign will support scientists and clinicians at the Vancouver Prostate Centre. This team of some of the brightest research minds in Canada has been studying the molecular and cellular events involved in the process whereby cancers become resistant to hormone withdrawal therapy of prostate cancer patients. They have found that a protein called the “androgen receptor” is critical for this type of treatment resistance and that by eliminating this protein they can cause many tumours to die. Recently, they have had an exciting breakthrough discovery of an entirely new class of drugs that can effectively inhibit, and in some cases, eliminate this protein. With the support of Prostate Cancer Canada and Safeway, they can continue to focus exclusively on further developing this promising research. On behalf of the research community, thank you for helping in the ﬁght against prostate cancer.

rtist collective Lee Harvey Osmond fronted by Canadian legend Tom W i l s o n c o m e s t o B o z z i n i ’s i n Chilliwack next week. “Acid folk” was born in an old garage off Clinton Avenue in Toronto, concocted by Tom Wilson from Blackie & the Rodeo Kings, a few Cowboy Junkies and some Skydiggers. Allowing bass, hypnotic rhythms and a lot of groove into their songwriting circle, the artist collective Lee Harvey Osmond created a sound that would creep out of the northern woods and across the Great Lakes into the south, the same way The Band did 40 years before them. Tom Wilson (guitar and vocals) struck Canadian rock gold in the ’90s as the leader of the much-loved Junkhouse and then found a whole new audience as a crucial component of roots-rock super-group Blackie and the Rodeo Kings, who have just released a compilation of some of their most loved songs entitled Swingin’ from the Chains of Love on True North Records. Wilson released solo albums in 2001 and 2006, and his 2005 collaboration with Bob

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.

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.

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!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ 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. email@example.com • Reading: 416-686-5014
