place in the afternoon. In that incident, a westbound truck caught the shoulder of the bridge, lost control and jackknifed.

fter a three hour and four minute round trip on Chilliwack’s public transit system to travel the six kilometres from her home to city hall, it only took 10 minutes for city engineers to put the kibosh on Jennifer Bigham’s transit plan. “Apparently my plan is good in theory but won’t hold up in reality,” said the self-styled “Chilliwack-ivist” in a press release this week. “The reason cited is that the city doesn’t have enough buses to support the format proposed, and that they don’t care to afford the lease or pay the operating costs on any more buses at this time.” The 26-year-old local mass transit activist’s $5 million plan to revamp the Chilliwack public transit system was born out of a survey of 500 transit users and about 200 hours of unpaid volunteer labour. She was invited to discuss it with city staff this week after presenting it to the city’s transit advisory committee last week, but during the meeting (with manager of transportation and drainage Rod Sanderson) she was told that her ideas were “old news” and that the city had already looked into similar changes. “I wish someone could have spared the 10 minutes a few months ago to lay it on the table for me so I didn’t have to take the time and effort to reinvent the wheel,” she said. To make the city’s bus system more user friendly, Bigham advocates moving the main bus interchange from the downtown core to the two malls just south of the

BY SABRINA DRAPER For the Times
n 1993 Chilliwack residents Rob and Brenda Wall started a program to give youth fun outdoor activities to do during the summer months. Seventeen years later their desire to do something bigger has led to the formation of a Canadian-Mexican charity that operates an RV campsite as part of a plan to help thousands of families in northern Mexico. “We started out wanting to give teens an alternative to something negative, then we felt there was a whole world out there we wanted to impact,” Rob Wall, owner of Wall and Sons Drywall in Chilliwack. “Through our company Stoney Creek Expeditions, we organized cost recovery missions to places like Mexico, Haiti and Uganda. We soon realized we wanted to help minis-

Wall family believes the church must ‘take up the slack’ where governments fall short tries and organizations in places that really needed the help and we wanted it to make a difference in those who participated and provide them with something they could bring back to their own communities,” Rob added. Mexico proved to be their most popular destination for a number of reasons, including affordability and proximity to the Lower Mainland. As they focused more and more on Mexico and helping the indigenous people in the Baja, the path the couple and their family should take became even clearer. “God brought us to this area and he knew what was needed. Families here are just working to survive. They look at things practically—like today we need to eat,” Brenda said. “We glorify God in the things we do and if it wasn’t for our relationship with God we wouldn’t be here.”
Rob added that they have worked to provide homes, clothing and food over the years and that they have learned many valuable lessons. This culmination of knowledge has led a group of pastors, educators and business people from the Fraser Valley to develop One Life One Chance, which operates Los Olivos RV camp in San Quintin as the jumping off point for their missions work. “If you are going to build a country, you need to do it one community at a time and that is what we plan to do with One Life One Chance. In these poorer countries where the government falls short, the church takes up the slack and we will work with the organizations in place,” Rob said. “We need to look after the poorest of the poor but it doesn’t do any good to just give them things. We want to help them financially. For example, employing them to work
with us instead of bringing people in from elsewhere and buying all of the supplies we can locally,” he added. “We don’t want to create entitlement. We would like the people we work with to feel proud of providing a living for themselves and provide a wholeness-spiritually, educationally and a change of lifestyle.” “Also, if you don’t have a bridge to local organizations, you are setting yourself up for failure. It is important to work with local pastors and support them in building relationships,” Brenda said. This philosophy of providing a hand up and not just a hand out is what drives One Life One Chance forward. Big plans for the five-acre Los Olivos facility are in the works including a K-to-12 school, post secondary and technical training, See WALL, Page 22

Reporter soars with ‘Super Dave’ BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes
Party with Skyhawks, Flight Fest on Sunday
ave Mathieson has been a professional pilot for years. He is president and co-owner of Summit Air and previously flew for Air Canada. This reassures me as I prepare to enter his stunt biplane. He asks me if I’ve ever done any flying before, and I respond that I’ve skydived once before. He tells me skydiving is scarier than riding along in his stunt bi-plane. This does not reassure me. IDEO Check out video Ditto for the footage of Tyler’s p r o c l a m a t i o n ﬂight with ‘Super on the side of Dave’ Mathieson at the plane that chilliwacktimes.com s a y s , “ Na m e d the world’s best stunt pilot (by his mom);” the little plaque, directly between the legs of me, his passenger, that proclaims that the plane “is amateur-built and does not comply with federal safety regulations for standard aircraft;” and the fact that Mathieson’s stunt moniker is “Super Dave.” And the short lecture about how to safely eject is most definitely not reassuring, particularly because I am 100 per cent sure I would be unable to execute any part of the
arachuters from the Canadian Forces Skyhawks will drop in on the Party in the Park on Friday at 7 p.m. before the Chilliwack Flight Fest kicks off Saturday. Proceedings begin at 6 p.m. at the Firkus Aircraft Hangar (just west of the main terminal), featuring a barbecue, dance, and live music from the Afterburners, along with a spectacular night show by Team Rocket. Tickets are available at the Airport Coffee Shop. On Sunday, a pancake breakfast begins at 8 a.m. at the Firkus hangar. Main gates open at 10 a.m. and the kids landing, along with the pre-airshow featuring remote control aircraft, both start at 11 a.m. The main event kicks off at 1 p.m., featuring Mathieson, the Skyhawks, and John Mrazek’s Harvard Mark IV.
Stunt pilot “Super Dave” Mathieson takes to the skies over Chilliwack Wednesday. When flying with a passenger, Mathieson pilots his biplane from the rear seat. very simple three-step process (unbutton seat belt; jump; deploy parachute). Mathieson tells me “you don’t have to worry about breaking [the
plane] in the sky. Unfortunately, on Tuesday I watched a news report about a stunt plane that had broken in half in Argentina (the pilot survived).
But I’m greedy and the chance to ride along with Mathieson is too enticing, even if I do consider banging out a quick draft of a will. His enthusiasm is also intoxicat-
ing. Asked to compare stunt flying with his day-to-day commercial pilot gig, he says: “This is yank and bank and having fun. It’s the ultimate freedom, really.” Well OK then. I strap in to the front seat in Mathieson’s little plane and put my life in the hands of a man I met 10 minutes prior. Life insurance salesmen may disagree, but it was a good choice.

While my children were growing up I was overweight and NEVER wanted to be seen in a bathing suit or shorts so I NEVER did things that I wanted with them. It would upset me everytime I hugged my kids because they could not ﬁt their arms around me. I would sit in front of them eating prepackaged foods or popping pills to lose weight. That was NOT teaching my children to eat properly. I was always up and down with my weight and ended up being over 350 pounds. So far I have lost 100 pounds on SureSlim and wish that I had of known about SureSlim while my kids were young so they would not have grown up to have a weight problem too.

Saving downtown core now up to ‘task force’
BY TYLER OLSEN firstname.lastname@example.org
t’s not just a committee, it’s a task force. Mayor Sharon Gaetz has tasked two councillors, a pair of local developers, and local business leaders with coming up with a plan that will help spur development in the city’s downtown core. The appropriately named Downtown Core Task Force was given its marching orders—and its own dedicated city staff member—at Monday’s council meeting. Their task will be “to see how we
can stimulate the environment for good development” downtown, Gaetz told the Times. “We’ve been talking for some time about downtown and how do we revitalize an area that needs more than a facelift, that needs investors,” she said. According to a report prepared by task force co-ordinator Kurt Houlden, the new group has been asked to: recommend improvements to city bylaws and policies that would encourage development; find areas “essential to redevelop;” develop “a financial plan that could include an annual funding commitment from

hieves ar med with a baton-like object made off with an undisclosed amount of jewelry from Peoples Jewellers Tuesday morning. Police say that three men entered the store, in Cottonwood Mall, just after 11 a.m. One of the men held a baton or something similar, according to police. Upon seeing the men, one of whom wore a bandana over his face, enter the store, staff “ducked out of sight for safety.” The men proceeded to force open cabinetry in the store and steal an undisclosed amount of jewelry. Police believe they left the area in a vehicle. RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Lea-Anne Dunlop said the men “certainly targeted this place in particular, we believe, for the jewelry and were in and out of there in a short amount of time.” Mounties hope to speak to
the city;” and “make other recommendations that could accelerate interest and investment or redevelopment within the downtown core area.” Coun. Ken Huttema will chair the task force, which will also include Coun. Pat Clark, downtown businessman John Vermeer, developer Eric Van Maren, along with the presidents of CEPCO, the Business Improvement Association and the Chamber of Commerce. One of the main challenges for Huttema and company will be finding a way to make demolishing and building in the downtown core as
financially attractive as building on untouched greenspace. Gaetz noted that the cost of buying a downtown property, tearing down an old building and completing necessary environmental surveys can cost several times more than the purchase of virgin land elsewhere in the city. That needs to change, she said, to entice developers back to Chilliwack’s core. The task force will focus on turning what the city would like to see happen downtown into reality. “What we hope for is a mix of retail,” said Gaetz. “We’re looking for residential up on top and we’re look-
ing for entertainment, like restaurants and pubs and things, that draw people.” That mix, she said, would provide a natural customer base for retailers, amenities for residents and a generally nicer vibe. Gaetz would also like to see six-storey residential wood buildings, the construction of which has been newly approved by the province, downtown. But exactly what needs to be done, however, is up to the task force. “We want to accelerate investment and interest down there so we’ll use every means we have to make it happen,” said Gaetz

any witnesses who may have seen the robbery. “We’re in the process of reviewing what [security footage] is available,” said Dunlop. Police believe all three thieves are between 25 and 30 years old. One suspect is white, five-foot-10 to sixfeet tall, and weighs around 200 pounds. He wore a black shoulder bag, blue baseball cap, grey sweater, black shoes, dark pants or jeans. He had a black and white bandana across the face and wore black gloves and sunglasses. Another is described as white and under six-feet tall, with short light brown hair. He wore a black or blue baseball cap, jeans or dark pants, black and white running shoes, yellow gloves and sunglasses. The other may be Asian and is the shortest of the three, at around five-footseven. He wore a red baseball cap, black hoodie with white Nike lettering, white and black running shoes, dark pants or jeans, white gloves and sunglasses.
Crime Stoppers scam BY TYLER OLSEN firstname.lastname@example.org
hey’re known for helping catch criminals, but a new Crime Stoppers fundraising effort seems to have led at least one person to commit a criminal offence. A marketing agency representing Upper Fraser Valley Crime Stoppers is going door to door selling a coupon book to raise money for the local non-profit crime-fighting agency. But police have learned that at least one man—with no ID or coupon pack or bright yellow jacket—has visited a local business seeking donations for Crime Stoppers. He was not given any money. RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Lea-Anne Dunlop said Crime
Stoppers’ marketing company, Rocky Mountain Marketing, will not ask for, nor accept, donations. They only offer a coupon book for sale, the proceeds from which will go to Crime Stoppers. “Unfortunately someone took this as an opportunity to know there is some fundraising going on and to try to [capitalize] on that themselves,” said Dunlop. Those selling the coupon books wear bright yellow jackets with the Rocky Mountain Marketing logo on them and always carry identification. Proceeds from the sale of the $25-plus-tax coupon books help pay for Crime Stoppers tip rewards, daily operations, telephone support, volunteer training and public awareness programs.

Local dinosaurs going extinct
ny parent who has ever taken their children on a road trip has unresolved issues with roadside attractions that feature large prehistoric animals and styrofoam boulders, and in that spirit we visited Dinotown yesterday, just east of Chilliwack on Highway 1. After 35 years of kids in the backseat begging pleasepleaseplease can-we-go-in, Dinotown will close forever on Sept. 6. The school year will resume and the Age of the Dinosaurs will finally come to an end in the Fraser Valley. It was not a meteor strike that killed it but a business deal. Dinotown’s 18 acres have been sold to a land developer. An RV park is planned where once cast-concrete tyrannosauri rex roamed the earth. “My family built this place in the early 1970s,” said Rob Ell, who introduced himself as the Mayor of Dinotown. “If you were around then, you might remember that it started out as Flintstone’s Bedrock City. That’s me there,” he said, and he pointed to a photograph of himself dressed as Dino, the Flintstone’s pet. Ell’s Dino costume in the photo was bright purple and appeared to be made out of shag carpeting. He was 15 then, he said, and kids loved to come up behind him and yank on his tail, smashing his face into the costume’s eyeholes. Good times. The Ells were franchisees to Hanna-Barbera, the cartoon studio that produced the Flintstones. Ell’s father, Bob, developed the park, and opened it as Bedrock City in 1975. It prospered. (True story from that era: A colleague, who didn’t want to pay to take his family to Anaheim, drove his preschool-age kids out to Bedrock City and told them it was
Be Our Guest Disneyland, earning my undying respect and admiration.) In 1994, the end came for Bedrock City when Hanna-Barbera was sold to Time Warner. “They told us we couldn’t use the name anymore,” Ell said. “Time Warner said they owned the intellectual property for any modernday cavemen.” With the Paleolithic closed to them by copyright, the Ells took an evolutionary step backward into the Jurassic. They brainstormed, came up with a family of Barneylike characters and reopened as Dinotown in 1995. It, too, was a hit. But all things come to an end, as the dinosaurs have taught us. Ell’s parents divorced. His mother, Helen, took over the park but retired in 2002 and moved to White Rock. Ell stayed on as manager but last year developed a brain tumour the size of a golf ball. It was benign, and the operation to remove it was a success, but it was a powerful reminder of his own mortality. When the land developer came along, he sold. The news of its closure touched off a wave of nostalgia for people who had brought their kids and grandkids here. Somebody started a Save Dinotown Facebook page, Ell said. He has three guestbooks full of last-minute goodbyes, he said (including one from a “Christina” who wrote, “Dinotown saved my life. We will miss roaring with you.”) And this last month’s atten-
dance has been among the busiest in the park’s history. On Wednesday afternoon, the parking lot was full. “Over the years,” he said, “we’ve had 2.5 million people come through, and employed over 2,000 teenagers, who pretty much run everything.” Inside, the place was jammed, and kids roared around the dinosaur slides and the pink volcano in the middle of the mini-putt golf course and squirted each other in the water park. They paddled wooden skiffs down the park’s little stream (having to use real paddles, no Disneyland-like automated rides here) and ogled the big cement yellow and pink brontosaurus in the picnic area. Truth to tell, the place looked worn and dowdy, but the kids didn’t seem to care. Over by the performance area, a group of high school students were backstage getting into dinosaur costumes. They were scheduled to go on in five minutes for the daily Dinotown parade. Alexandria Bennett, who was 17 and a high school student from Chilliwack, was slipping into her costume of Dee Dee, one of the dinosaur characters. She was asked how life was as a dinosaur, and she said that a lot of the kids were scared of her, and that made her feel bad, but that a lot of them liked Dee Dee, too. “I came to Dinotown when I was little,” Alexandria said, “and I loved it! I’m pretty sure I got to go up on stage.” She was asked how the dinosaur costumes were to wear. “There very hot,” Alexandria said, “and they smell weird.” ◗ This column was originally published in theVancouver Sun Aug. 19.
hough many of us may be working in factories or offices, chasing the Canadian dream, the work of farming in the Fraser Valley is going stronger than ever. Unlike most places in the world, B.C. has an Agricultural Land Reserve, a thing envied around the globe, as it preserves fertile ground from speculators and “growth.” On that land, more often than not, you’ll find computerized dairy farms, precisely engineered fields and cuttingedge technologies. The “dumb farmer” who was looked down upon for too long by self-important city cousins today usually has a degree in agricultural science coupled with a keen —and trained—business sense, a necessity in today’s cutthroat global market. Those who live in the Fraser Valley can thank agriculture for their jobs. Poultry, milk, vegetables, mushrooms, and fruit add up to close to half a billion dollars in farm gate sales annually—and the many spin-off sectors that support agriculture add another $1.5 billion to our economy. If you eat, thank farmers for the food on your plate, some of the best, freshest, and safest produced in any country around the world. What farmers do, they do out of pride and love of the lifestyle, despite the endless hours and huge financial risks.

Pickton inquiry worth time & effort Editor: Re: A public inquiry (Pickton). Dear Premier Gordon Campbell: My sister Dawn Crey vanished from Vancouver's Downtown Eastside in November of 2000. Following and exhaustive investigation of a property owned by the Robert Pickton family on Dominion Avenue in Port Coquitlam, the police were able to tell me in 2004 that Dawn's DNA was recovered at that site. Dawn was 43 at the time she inexplicably disappeared from the DTES. She was a longterm resident of the DTES and she was regarded as a regular by social service agencies in the area. Dawn grew up in provincially sponsored homes in Chilliwack. She was treated very badly by her first set of foster parents. However, she told me that she was treated well in her second foster home. And as a teen she gave birth to her only child, Jonathon. Unable to care for her infant son, she asked her foster parents to raise him. Jonathon is now a young man and lives in Mission City. Dawn was mentally ill and she relied on methadone to help combat an addiction to street drugs. She lived on welfare and sold second hand clothing for extra income. For much of her adult life, she called low-rent hotel rooms home and turned to soup kitchens for meals. Dawn has a criminal record and served time at a provincial psychiatric hospital in Port Coquitlam. She told me that she often broke the law in order to get both the medications and psychiatric help she needed. Dawn needed a safe place to live and expert medical care that seemed so sorely lacking a decade ago. I believe my sister might still be alive today if the police had taken a keener interest in the disappearances of woman from the DTES beginning in the 1980s. As both you and your colleagues know, the VPD has apologized to the families of the missing

and murdered woman for the mistakes they made along the way. And both the VPD and the RCMP say they support a public inquiry into the Pickton matter. And support for a public inquiry is growing and coming from many sources, including women's advocacy groups, aboriginal organizations, First Nations and the City of Vancouver. I think a public inquiry will offer important lessons to help us avoid a repeat of a deadly rampage on the scale perpetrated by Robert Pickton. Apart from taking a hard look at the shortcomings of the police investigation into Vancouver's murdered and missing woman case, an inquiry would also tell us a lot about the kinds of health and social policies we need to adopt to help reduce the risks vulnerable women continue to face in the DTES. Let's not be faint of heart. Let's face up to our responsibilities. Let's have a public inquiry. Ernie Crey Chilliwack
Party house needs silencing Editor: To the Skowkale Native Band: Around 11:30 p.m. on Aug. 14 all hell broke loose, loud voices, swearing, vehicle noises with bright beams on, drinking, music and it did not stop until after 3:30 a.m. For a self-governing native band where are your bylaw officers? This is directed to the party house on Chilliwack River Road. Our townhome complex
backs on to this property and affects our sleep. The neighbours beside them are quiet and respectful. Do they keep quiet and put up with this loud noise being natives themselves? We are on leased land that the natives have leased to our complex. As we are not natives, we have no rights regarding this problem, per the police. The police have advised us they tell the party house to quiet down but this is not followed. That should not be, we should all have to abide by the bylaw. We have been told they do not have to follow the noise bylaw. This is the second letter to the band and nothing has been done about the problem. They have not responded to us by phone or mail. Tom & Sylvia Wickett Chilliwack
Wrong place for plaque tribute Editor: I agree that only those who have lost a loved one, especially one with a love of the outdoors and especially climbing our gorgeous mountain tops, will understand (Mountain Pollution, Times, Aug. 17). Our family lost our sister, who deserved a plaque for fighting cancer and who climbed the peaks she knew all her early adult life and were part of her passion for life. Her memorial deserves to be on summits of Mt. Cheam and Lady Peak. I would not want to have her memorial plaque placed where she did not fight a good fight to the last peak of her journey. She did not lose her life
due to climbing the mountain like others unfortunately have and deserves the honour to be remembered with a plaque at the peak of the journey they made but somehow didn’t make it home from. On that account I have the opinion that plaques that do not commemorate such a person, should be placed in a more appropriate location. R. Hiebert Abbotsford
Don’t let morals get in the way Editor: I am completely astounded by what happened to me last night. I went to the walk-in clinic to get a prescription renewal for my birth control, as my husband and I already have two beautiful children, but are not financially ready for another at this time. I waited for about an hour, and after having my number called, I went to give my information to the receptionist. She then asked why I was here. I explained to her that I needed a prescription for birth control, and I also had an eczema-like rash on my arms. She told me they could take me right in and to have a seat in No. 3. After waiting roughly another 10 minutes for the doctor to come in, she came in and asked me what I needed. I explained to her the same thing I explained to the receptionist. She stopped me before I could tell her about my arms. “Oh, no! I don’t know why she sent you in here, I can’t give out prescriptions for birth control.” I replied with, “Really? Why not?” She then explained to me there were a couple of different reasons, after telling me that only about 50 per cent of the doctors in Chilliwack prescribe birth control. “One of the reasons is because it’s bad for the environment, and the fish.” The fish apparently eat the synthetic estrogen and it is killing them off, and messing with their repro-
ductive systems. The second reason is because of “religious reasons.” Now, everyone is entitled to their own religion and their own beliefs, but to bring that into your work life, and deny a person medical care just because you don’t believe in it is absolutely ludicrous. How many teenagers are going to be going for a prescription for birth control just to be told “it’s bad for the environment and I don’t believe in it?” How many unwanted pregnancies do you want in order for you to start believing in it? How many innocent babies have to suffer before you start believing in it? Regardless of your religion or beliefs, it is completely unethical to deny someone medical care for no reason other than your own selfishness. Medicine is not about the practitioner, it is about the patient. I find it extremely immoral for a doctor to not abide by the patient’s wishes in all cases (assuming they are not requesting something illegal) no matter how you personally feel on the subject. The fact that this doctor thinks it’s all about them, that their wishes are what matters, tells me they are not suited to be in the medical field in any capacity. If you have a moral problem with doing something to the point where you would refuse to do that particular thing, do not then pick a profession in which you know you will be called upon to do that particular thing, in this case, not prescribing a married woman with two children already, birth control. I do not smoke or drink, therefore, there is no medical reason to not be on birth control, and since I have just recently moved to Chilliwack, I now have to find someone to prescribe me what I am entitled to.

Something bigger than ourselves BY HUGO REIMER Sardis Community Church
couple of days back, a story about some young graffiti artists who had just completed the highway of heroes mural project in Toronto, had this reoccurring refrain: “It is so great to be part of something bigger than yourself.” In musing about this I recognize we are all drawn into the bigger picture, we long for connection into the ongoing story. I have been part of several teams where the camaraderie, and everyone doing their part in a syncretistic energy to achieve goal, ushers forth
unity, a sense of accomplishment, that assurance of belonging, and the ability to bask in the uniqueness of the moment. It infuses life with purpose and value. When I first moved to Chilliwack I volunteered to assist those impacted by the flood. People who did not know each other, coming together to help their neighbours united us, emboldened us, so that the task became lighter. An event, a concert, or a performance can have the same impact, and even though each person is processing emotions based on their perception of how they relate to the plot, characters, or conflict, there remains, nonetheless for me, a comfort, a kind
of contentment in being together. Or discussing a book and unraveling impact only to discover that others may be able to relate, or conversely discovering conversing about very differing viewpoints, and still there is the mystery of knowing that you are pulling different threads, or perhaps a different part of same thread, yet all in the same tapestry. I think that is what surprised us Canadians at the recent Olympics as we mingled on Robson, and of course who doesn’t remember where they were and with whom when Crosby scored the winning goal.We were brought together by something bigger than ourselves and the everydayness of everyday.
This summer as I have meandered along gurgling streams to discover cascading waterfalls, or watched a child learn to wakeboard at camp, or a two-year-old learning to drink from a sprinkler and the sheer thrill of life from that perspective, or witnessed a couple taking the bold step of making promises to each other, it has given me pause to survey and study the “geography of the soul.” I am reminded that in the midst of bills, discouragement, disappointment and broken promises there is this entire life behind and beyond things, there is a living God who enters the fray of our lives to reveal hope, beauty, mystery and wonder. I
need that, we need that. That is why I am a follower of Jesus: it connects me to the ongoing story of God’s activity, God who as Creator “has not left himself without testimony: he has shown kindness … and fill our hearts with joy” (see Acts 14:16). It connects me to a people engaged in the activity of seeing people and things not as they are, but as they ought to be and could be. Following Jesus invites me, and us, to treat each other with dignity and grace, and that is bigger than any of us. ◗ Hugo Reimer is pastor of Sardis Community Church.

High-flying Dueck takes it to the extreme
Local rider becoming a wheely big deal BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
h i l l i w a c k e x t re m e mountain bike rider Sam Dueck has added a new feather to his cap. Dueck placed fourth at last weekend’s Kokanee Crankworx slopestyle competition in Whistler. The huge competition drew more than 20,000 spectators to watch Dueck and other riders hurl themselves and their bikes off massive jumps. Dueck, who is just 18 and earned an invite to the event by placing fifth in Colorado earlier this year, laid down a stellar first run of 84.25 to claim fourth prize. The event featured riders from as far away as New Zealand, Sweden and Germany. Dueck celebrated by heading to Vancouver Island to hike the West Coast Trail.

Rookies set to impress Bruin brass
Hockey season is almost upon us. The WHL regular season doesn’t start until late September but the Chilliwack Bruins coaching brass will hit the ice next weekend to survey a new crop of talent. Eight teams of rookies will hit the Prospera Centre ice Thursday as the Bruins’ rookie camp opens. Games run throughout the following three days, starting at 8 a.m. and running as late as 10:30 p.m. A goalie session will take place each day at 1 p.m. Rookie camp ends on Sunday and the following day the main cast of character hits the ice. Sessions run throughout Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Camp wraps with a full-scale Black versus Gold game Sept. 1 at 7 p.m. All scrimmages, as well as the final game, will be open to the public. The Bruins then hit the road to kick off the pre-season Sept. 3 against the Kamloops Blazers in Chase. The teams renew hostilities the following day in Mission. Local fans have a chance to see their new team in pre-season action Sept. 11 when the Bruins face off against the Vancouver Giants at Prospera Centre, and Sept. 17 when they host the Kelowna Rockets. Game time for both days is 7 p.m. The Bruins begin the regular season on Sept. 24 on the road against the Giants. The home opener is on Oct. 2 against the Blazers. The Bruins are also gearing up for their alumni golf tournament next Tuesday at the Chilliwack Golf and Country Club. Tickets are $600 for a foursome.

He tried to step it up for the second run but they were right there with a bike and technicians.

A member of Chilliwack Community Services’ youth recreation program takes aim at an opponent during a recent outing at Sniper’z paintball.
GET YOUR FRONT ROW SEAT!
Targeting ‘at-risk’ teens
Summer trip to Sniper’z helps build trust and responsibility BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
Time was running out. “Guys, we have to go!” a cover-all clad teenager shouted at his crew. “Somebody give me cover, I’m going that way.” The teenager pointed at a wooden structure across a wide-open stretch of shin-high grass—no-man’s land. “Go, Go, Go!” another shouted, leaning out behind a jumble of semi-truck tires and unleashing a volley of paintballs towards a plywood tower 50 yards away. These cover-all commandoes never made it to their target—a large plywood moose near that far tower—before being cut down by a hail of balls filled with yellowed and orange paint; but you wouldn’t know it from the smiles on their faces. Recently, two dozen boys and girls—but mostly boys—took over Sniper’z paintball field for what has become a highlight of Robert Skinner’s year. Each summer Skinner, the youth recreation co-ordinator at Chilliwack Community Services, takes his young charges—many of whom are considered “at-risk”—to Sniper’z and trades paintball fire. This year Skinner was joined by Brenda Listoen and Greg Hodson, school counsellors who run a school-based summer program, also for at-risk teenagers. Both programs aim to give teenagers a positive outlet for their energy during the summer, when youth could otherwise find less productive ways to spend their time. “It gives them new experiences. A lot of kids can’t afford to do something like this,” says Hodson, paintball gun in hand. But activities like paintball also create lasting memories, bonds with adults, and a sense of responsibility and shared camaraderie. “I think healthy risk taking is something that’s important,” said Skinner. Many of the youths in his charge will leave this afternoon with welts, but nothing more. They’ll also have learned a little about teamwork and trust. Skinner runs an after-school program from
September to June, and then this summer drop-in program, which gives kids an opportunity to visit water parks and beaches and pool halls and hiking trails and Playland. Paintball is a highlight, but hardly the only thing going on. That’s important, because many of the youths have parents who may not have the resources, the time or the desire to micromanage their children’s free time. Others lack father figures or adults who they can talk to. Skinner’s presence, as an adult confidante, is important, says Sue Gratton. Gratton’s son, Peter Brousseau, was referred to Skinner’s group three years ago, when he was 13, by his mental health counsellor. Recently diagnosed with autism, Gratton said Peter is usually very quiet. “Rob has brough Peter out of his shell,” she says. “He’s able to talk to people, he’s able to socialize.” Indeed, Peter was one of those commandoes organizing the assault on the moose at the beginning of this story. He was taken down by enemy fire but afterwards had plenty to say to his teammates about the game. For kids like 14-year-old J.J. Brock, who came with Hodson’s group, and 13-year-old Amber Hope, one of Skinner’s kids, the camp is something fun to do. “I like it because it’s an interesting camp to be at,” said Hope, who sat out the paintball because she didn’t want any welts for a wedding she planned on attending the next day. Brock has the same reason for participating in Hodson’s summer program. “It’s just something fun to do; you make friends,” he said. But for others, a summer program can be a lifelong turning point. The paintballing counsellors and children were also joined by James Morgan, a youth probation officer, and RCMP Const. Josh Roda. Their presence allows the kids to put a friendly face to institutions that can seem intimidating, if not antagonistic. “We’re trying to break the barriers down between the youth and the RCMP,” said Morgan. In the end, it comes down to relationships and building a support network for kids who may otherwise feel alone. “Initially it’s really awkward; it’s hard to create that bridge,” said Skinner. «But once a bond is created, “it shoots off . . . and they follow you everywhere.” Those kids, in turn, stick with the program, pick up leadership skills and become mentors to younger children who may just need a hand, a listening ear, or somebody to cover for them on a paintball field.

TRUCKER, from page 1
TRANSIT, from page 1 highway, adding a pair of auxiliary exchanges and having a couple of smaller routes reach out from there. A “B-line” would connect the exchanges. The plan would require a few more buses, a cost city council balked at last month when they saw Bigham’s proposal. Little had changed by the meeting this week. For Bigham, it’s a matter of priorities. “This is primarily due to the fact that the population that rides the bus is only one per cent of Chilliwack’s entirety, and apparently that group is of very little societal importance,” she said. “And we wonder where the ‘loser cruiser’ stigma comes from.” She believes extra buses would have been added long ago if more city councilors relied on public transit.
Narrow bridge for oversize trucks. At the Vedder Canal bridge there is no shoulder. “You’re rubbing [the curb] already to keep avoiding having your mirrors taken off,” said the driver. “There’s just no room for anything to happen. “The No. 1 highway is kind of pathetic, bridge-wise. There’s so much volume on so few roads, especially for commercial traffic.” RCMP Traffic Services Insp. Ted Emanuels agreed that it’s not uncommon for bridges along the Trans-Canada Highway to have no shoulder. But he said wider shoulders on the highway before and after the bridge give drivers more room to compensate. B.C. Trucking Association president Paul Landry said he has contacted the Ministry of Transportation to suggest they “drill down and really find out what’s going on at this location.”
Matter of priorities
Transit advisory committee chair Diane Janzen disagrees. “Of course it’s not a low priority,” she said, “but the fact of the matter is that you build a transit system over time.” Although Janzen has never ridden a bus in Chilliwack, she said she was a dedicated transit user in Winnipeg for 10 years before moving to rural Chilliwack. “I’m very committed to moving public transit along,” she said. “I think we absolutely have to do that. Can we get it all done all at once? We’ll have to see how far we can get.” She said funding is the major obstacle to implementing much-needed changes and that the committee will be working out priorities next month in preparation for the city’s December budget discussions.

chilliwacktimes.com Van Kills Range Rover Designer Forty years ago, in June (1970), British Leyland Motor Company (BL) introduced the ‘Range Rover’, an off-road vehicle with a powerful V8 engine, a forgiving coil spring suspension, and a top highway speed of over 160 kmh. In no time it became an international status symbol and pop culture icon, an example Cedric of superior industrial design featured in the Louvre Museum in the early 70’s.

In 1999, the Global Automotive Elections Foundation picked the Range Rover as one of the top cars of the century and Mr. King as one of the best engineers. And since then, the Range Rover has been celebrated in the lyrics of dozens of rap songs and in the movies including The Queen, the 2006 dramatization of the events following Diana, the Princess of Wales’ death in a car crash in Paris, and Quantum of Solace, the 2008 James Bond action flick.

about the Range Rover having become a status symbol. In 2004, he told the London Daily Mail, “Sadly, the fourby-four has became an acceptable alternative to Mercedes or BMW for the pompous, self-important driver. I find the people who use it as such deeply unattractive.’’
Hughes Barrister & Solicitor
In 1981, Range Rover became a hit in the fashion world after a luxury prototype appeared in Vogue magazine. Introduced to America in 1987, it quickly became the flagship model for Land Rover North America. In the early 1990s, a two-door, limited edition ‘Range Rover CSK’ was launched. Powered by a 3.9 litre, V8 engine paired with a five speed manual transmission (automatic transmission was optional) and new anti-roll suspension, only 200 units of the CSK were built, each individually numbered. The initials honoured the engineer who led the team that created the original Range Rover, Charles Spencer King.
If Mr. King’s candid opinions offended, they did little to detract from his glowing reputation as one of the most highly regarded engineers in Britain. From his youthful apprenticeship, starting in 1942, at 17 years of age developing gas turbine engines for Rolls-Royce, through his maturation in the engineering department of the Rover Company-then led by his uncles Maurice and Spencer Wilks-through to his chairmanship of BL Technology from which he retired in 1985, he was, as one tribute described him, “the engineer’s engineer. Whatever his cars were designed to do, they always exceeded the goals set for them.”
Post retirement, Mr. King remained passionate about the industry campaigning for lighter weight cars and for design improvements for better visibility. He called for thinner windscreen pillars or A-pillars, too-thick ones increasingly identified as a crash factor. On June 26, 2010 Mr. King, aged 85, died in Coventry, England from injuries he sustained when he was hit by a van while cycling to do his daily errands. Prevented from driving by a detached retina, he was otherwise fit, one report saying, “he avoided elevators, preferring to take stairs two at a time well into his eighties.” Cedric Hughes L.L.B.

have to past incidents. Traffic engineers will also examine the bridge, according to a Transportation Ministry spokesman. Simmill said the crashes on the bridge may just be a function of the heavy traffic it sees. “I’ve driven that bridge hundreds of times, and most of my colleagues have, and I don’t think there’s anything unsafe about the bridge,” said Simmill. But a truck driver with 30 years of experience told the Times that the Vedder Canal Bridge, like many others around British Columbia, has little room for trucks, which are considerably wider than passenger cars. The heavy traffic on the bridge only adds to the peril, said the driver, who didn’t want to be named. “There’s people passing inside, outside, and then it gets narrow,” he said. The maximum width for a tractor-trailer is eight-feet, six-inches wide, although that can increase to 10-feet, six-inches with permits

While Rob and Brenda spend three to four months a year in Mexico right now, they don’t plan to move there permanently.They feel their ties to Chilliwack keep a big part of this project on the rails. “I make a living through construction in the Fraser Valley and really we’ve been given the ability to do what we do because we have a company there,” Rob said. “This is what we’ve been called to do and we have to do this until we are done. We do get a lot of joy and fulfillment from this and the biggest lesson we have learned is it isn’t about what you can get out of life—it’s about giving your life away.” ◗ For more information visit www.stoneycreekexpeditions.com, www.onelifeonechance.ca and www.losolivosrvpark.com.
Intrepid reporter Tyler Olsen climbs on board ‘Super Dave’s stunt plane.
We taxi to the start of the runway, pause for a few seconds, and then Mathieson cranks the engine wide open. It feels like sitting in a stock car when the driver puts the pedal to the metal. I’m pinned to the seat as the airport terminal flashes by. As we bank over Promontory Heights, we emerge from the low-level smog and suddenly the sky is clear and Mount Cheam is staring us in the face. “Do you want to do a roll?” I hear over my headset. I nod. The plane’s nose rises and then suddenly we’re sideways. Before I can consider what will happen to my camera and video camera (check www.chilliwacktimes.com to see the footage) we’re upside down. Then sideways. Then right side up. There is no loss of gravity, and my cameras refrain from tumbling into the canopy. It feels like the most natural thing in the world.
Feeling the ‘G’ Why was I scared? Like a little child, I think “Again! Again! Again!” When Mathieson offers another roll, I nod firmly. Again we swoop up, bank and then tumble. Do I want to feel a “G?” Mathieson asks? The plane dives, banks to the left, then raises its nose and gains elevation again. I briefly feel like a sumo wrestler. We buzz past the airport going around a kajillion miles an hour (the plane has a top speed of 235 miles per hour) before looping back around and landing. Why was I scared? As I wrote this story, I come across a story about Mathieson’s ability to fly under pressure. Just weeks ago, a bearing rod blew out on his plane, causing him to lose the ability to ascend and descend. He managed to land safely, with firefighters, RCMP and a helicopter standing by. You know, just in case something went wrong.

Cooking pasta for best results A staple in almost every home’s pantry is spaghetti or some form of pasta that makes its way to the dinner table on a regular basis. Many of us take the time to focus on building the flavour and complexity of the accompanying sauce for our pasta of choice; however the pasta itself needs attention as well. Many food columns could be dedicated to achieving palate-pleasing goals in pasta sauces, but let us not forget about the substance of these dishes—the pasta noodle. Thus this column will focus on unraveling some myths and procedures in what seems to be one of the simplest tasks in the kitchen—boiling water and cooking pasta. The first thing to examine is the dry pasta noodle and the transformation that takes place during the cooking process. The most obvious observation is that cooked pasta is larger in volume and flexible, compared to dry raw pasta. What makes this possible is the absorption of water during the boiling process. The cooking process of any food, no matter how simple it seems, needs to be analyzed because this is our chance to infuse flavour into the ingredients being cooked. Everyone has heard of the process of salting water when boiling pasta, but few know or realize the reason why. Some believe it is to help the pasta from sticking or to help keep the water from boiling over; however the reason is to season the pasta and to increase the flavour. Pasta on its own is very bland, and combining bland cooked pasta with a sauce that you have perfected, will be a detriment to your finished dish. If the pasta water is salted liberally then the pasta will be absorbing salt-water, instead of just water, and thus your pasta dish will be seasoned from the inside out.
On Cooking Another no-no is to add oil to your pasta water. This idea probably first came about to prevent the pasta noodles from sticking together, however it will negatively affect your finished dish. Oiled pasta water will help keep your pasta from sticking together when cooking, but a film of oil will always be left on the drained noodles. This thin film of oil will inhibit the starchiness of the cooked pasta and in turn prevent the accompanying sauce from sticking to, or absorbing into, the noodles as much. When pasta is eaten you want the starchiness of the pasta to hold onto the sauce as much as possible, so that the dish will be able to be enjoyed to the fullest. That said, drained cooked pasta should not be oiled for the same reason. A better way to help prevent your pasta noodles from sticking together during the cooking process is to stir the noodles constantly for the first two minutes of cooking time. By that point the water will have returned to its fullboil action and the agitation of the bubbling water will keep the pasta moving and prevent it from sticking. Once the pasta has been drained, do not rinse it. Rinsing will cool the pasta down and also wash away some of the starchiness that we want to help secure the sauce to the noodles. Homemade “spaghetti” is a very common dish in many households, and whether you use spaghetti, linguine, or other types of noodles, I hope these few simple recommendations help to make your meal more enjoyable and
flavourful. Dear Chef Dez: What is the best way to tell when pasta is cooked? Norma L. Maple Ridge Dear Norma: There are many ways that people use to determine that pasta is cooked to perfection – including the old wives’ tale about throwing it against the wall, and, if it sticks, it’s done. The best way is to let your mouth do the talking. Carefully remove a strand or piece of pasta from the boiling water. After waiting a few seconds to cool down, take a bite. It should feel ‘el dente’, meaning ‘to the tooth’ in Italian. This relates to the feeling that the pasta should not be
overcooked and offer some resistance when biting into it. It should not be hard, but should not be too soft and mushy either. The package of the pasta you purchase will always offer a guideline cooking time, but your bite will always give you the right answer. Send your food/cooking questions to email@example.com or P.O. Box 2674, Abbotsford, B.C. V2T 6R4. Chef Dez is a food columnist, culinary instructor and cooking show performer.

Hitting the high notes BY CORNELIA NAYLOR email@example.com
Local soprano Rebecca Paulding and mom Marg entice their schnauzer, RoxieCanto, into howling a few bars of La Boheme. This month Paulding plays Musetta in the Bard on the Beach production of Puccini’s beloved opera.
ebecca Paulding’s speaking voice won’t necessarily grab your attention. Like many a twenty-something, she tends to take the edges off her statements with a laugh. But stand anywhere near her when she breaks into a Puccini aria, and she’ll blow your hair back. This month, Paulding brings that big voice to the stage in Vancouver for a Bard on the Beach production of Puccini’s La Boheme. The fourth-year UBC opera student will play the role of Musetta, a timeless and beloved coquette, who dupes an older lover into picking up the dinner tab after she takes off with a former young lover and his starving artist friends. “It’s neat to have a character that has all that, that’s so fun,” she said. “You can get away with a lot on stage.” But Musetta isn’t totally shallow, according to Paulding, and the final act has her singing a prayer for her friend, Mimi. “You see that underneath it all, she has this huge heart,” said Paulding. The role is a night-and-day contrast with Paulding’s last major role as Marguerite—Louis Riel’s wife—in the Western premiere of the Canadian opera Louis Riel. Besides big differences in the music itself, Paulding said the familiarity of the Puccini opera presents challenges she didn’t face performing the innovative and relatively new Canadian show. “With something like Boheme, usually the people that are coming, they know the story really well,” she said, “and the opera buffs, they know every aria and every line and every character…You have to be right on your game.” One factor that might add some novel twists for opera buffs in this production, though, is that it is being directed by Bard founder and artistic director Christopher Gaze, whose background is mostly in straight theatre. “It’s very interesting, actually, to get
that viewpoint,” said Paulding. “He has a different way of looking at everything.” For UBC’s opera ensemble who make up the cast, that means a lot less standing around and singing arias and a lot more action. Musetta’s dynamic entrance in the second act will be a case in point (but we’re not giving away any secrets here). Singing and moving around the stage at the same time are nothing new to Paulding, though, and she says her years of musical theatre in Chilliwack have been a definite asset. Paulding started studying music with the Chilliwack Academy of Music when she was just three years old—she vaguely remembers tambourines. Her first love was the piano, and her goal of becoming a concert pianist was only challenged when she was 13 and got her first taste of singing on stage during a summer Broadway workshop. “I remember coming home every night and thinking, ‘I love this. I love this,’” she said. That was also the year she started studying voice locally with Paula Quick. Although she was involved in summer musicals for three years and loved them, she was increasingly drawn to opera. In Grade 11, she spent 30 hours volunteering at the Vancouver Opera. Meeting people who were making a living singing, was a turning point, she said. Since joining the UBC opera ensemble, Paulding has traveled to the Czech Republic twice and expanded her musical horizons even further. “Over there little towns way smaller than Chilliwack have a huge opera house plus a ballet plus a big symphony house,” she said. “It’s just mind blowing. It makes me want to work harder.” ◗ La Boheme at Bard on the Beach runs Aug. 30 and Sept. 6. Since all roles are double cast, please note Paulding’s performances are at 1 p.m. on Aug. 30 and 7 p.m. on Sept. 6. Tickets may be purchased by phone at 1-877-737-0559 or online at www.bardonethebeach.org.

Makers & Shakers heat up Hot Springs weekend
he Harrison Hot Springs Makers & Shakers Festival takes off Labour Day weekend. Celebrate local visual artists and take in the Harrison craft market, artisan demonstrations, a mini busker fest and more. One of Harrison’s favourite “shakers,” John Gilliat, kicks off the event Friday, Sept. 3. He’ll be performing his show, Ottmar, with a twist—fiery rumba flamenco jazz When Gilliat holds his acoustic guitar, he holds technique and emotion in melodic balance and his audience in the palm of his hand. Gilliat continues to offer new direction and contemporary expression to world beat, Latin jazz and Flamenco rumba, touring festivals and headlining concerts with his quartet (bass, two guitars and percussion). His new CD, Beyond Boundaries, recently released in Japan and Canada, continues to offer new direction and contemporary expression to Nouveau Flamenco, Flamenco rumba and jazz. The Harrison Festival’s craft market will run Sept. 4 and 5 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. in Harrison’s Memorial Hall. Admission is free. All items at the market are hand-crafted by the artists, and there will be a range of crafts suitable for early Christmas shopping, gift giving or just to treat yourself. There will be a wide selection, including jewelry, pottery, soaps, candles, clothing, books, paintings and more.
ITH E W N! E R F ISSIO ADM
Ar tisan demonstrations, including everything from pottery and carving to Tshirt statue creations, will showcase local artists’ talents as well as drum making workshops with a local Chehalis artist. Come watch how the makers create their masterpieces. Additional entertainment includes Kelsey Charlie and the Sasquatch Tours Dancers along with traditional storytelling. Bring your toonies and loonies for Harrison’s first Mini Buskers Fest, which will run on Saturday and Sunday. A number of buskers will perform along the beach. This outdoor festival celebrates the art form of street performance and is presented in the “pass the hat” busking tradition. Artists make their fees directly from the generous audiences. Local Sasquatch investigators Bill and Thomas will also be in the village plaza Sept. 6 to share their wealth of knowledge about this elusive creature. Visitors are welcome to come with their curiosity and questions.

Christie helps the adults understand how to participate and the importance of relaxing and enjoying the activities with their children. Music Together is a music and movement approach to early childhood that develops every child’s opportunity for basic music competence by encouraging music experience rather than learning of information about music. The atmosphere in the class is relaxed and children experience a comfortable, encouraging environment that respects individual temperaments and learning styles. Families are encouraged to attend class together, so younger children and older children in the same family can learn music and movement activities to enjoy at home.
usic Together of the Fraser Valley provides a music and movement class for children,from infants to Kindergarten and their parents or caregivers. In Chilliwack, the classes are offered at Project Dance on Gaetz Street, and Creative Outlet, on Lark Road. Classes are also held in Abbotsford and Agassiz. Openings in Music Together classes are available on weekday mornings and after school. Registration begins on Aug. 23 for classes beginning Sept. 20. In a Music Together class, up to 12 children and their parents or caregivers (grandparent, babysitter, nanny) meet for 45 minutes each week for 10 weeks to experience new songs, chants, movement activities and instrumental jam sessions. Both adults and children participate, led by a teacher, Kendra Christie, with early childhood and music skills, as well as a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Education degree.

Jane Marshall/For Edmonton Journal
Aurum Lodge, an eco-tourism getaway near Nordegg, Alta., provides guests with great access to hiking around Abraham Lake. Jane Marshall and her children Benjamin and Julie enjoy views of the turquoise and tumultuous waters.
Explore David Thompson country on foot or on horseback BY JANE MARSHALL For Canwest News Service NORDEGG, Alta. - Abraham Lake is a 33-kilometrelong, man-made lake of murky, mysterious turquoise ruffled with wild, frothing whitecaps. Because of its unusual colour and impressive size, it’s the most obvious highlight between Nordegg and the Saskatchewan River crossing. But there are many other wonders within this oft-forgotten area in central Alberta. From Edmonton, the drive is an easy one—only four hours at most. The most scenic route takes you through Devon, past Calmar to Highway 22, and then west and into the mountains on Highway 11. Our family of four (which includes my husband Mike, son Ben and daughter Julie) pulled into Aurum Lodge mid-day. We snaked through stands of lodgepole pine and saw the eco-friendly log building with its solar panels and minimalist esthetic. Staying at Aurum Lodge allows you to access a range of trails that flow down to the banks of Abraham Lake or ascend the rising slopes around it. It’s eerily quiet as soon as you lose sight of the lodge, but it’s wonderful for those looking to escape the throngs of summer tourists or for those looking for a more meditative experience. The area is filled with history and lore from the Stoney tribe—
its original inhabitants—and the feeling here is raw and unharnessed. Our linens smelled like fresh air—and no wonder; Madeleine Ernst, co-owner with her husband Alan, was outside pinning up guest linens on a series of clotheslines supported by pine trees. Ahhh. Nature. At first glance, the Nordegg area appears sparse in terms of amenities and choice, so it pays to do some research. We knew that with the children we would need to keep busy as Aurum Lodge is a retreatstyle (not a noisy, kid-oriented) destination. Siffleur Falls Trail This is a family-friendly 7.8-km hike on mostly flat ground. It gave the children lots of variation: a suspension bridge (cool to think that the same roiling river underfoot runs all the way to Edmonton), wide-open meadows used for centuries by the Stoney tribe, a deep and aweinspiring gorge and the pummeling churn of a waterfall. The children did well despite some rain. Luckily, we came prepared with rain pants and jackets. I must advise caution on the banks of the gorge, especially with little ones. The trail follows the canyon’s edge and skirts a sheer drop to the Siffleur River below. But the close supervision is well worth the effort. At the top, the children were wide-eyed with wonder as they watched a seemingly gentle, wide river fall through a narrow chasm of rock into a long canyon below. The churn of the startled water, the contrast between smooth and torrential liquid, and light being transformed into canyon darkness—the perspective of Siffleur Falls is startling.
McKenzies’ Trails West Yee-haw! This outfitter is the oldest in the area. With more than 70 years of experience, the McKenzies, a husband-and-wife team who took over the family business, make sure that visitors have a great time. Ben and Mike went on a one-hour trail ride and Ben loved his first horseback ride and the views it provided. My husband enjoyed his perspective from high up on the horse’s back and the ability to focus not just on his feet as they navigated the trail’s roots and rocks, as he would if he were hiking, but rather on the scenery around him. While the two went off on their adventure, Laurie McKenzie gave my daughter a carefully guided ride on one of the smaller horses. Julie was comfortable and held on tight as Laurie toured her around the grounds. McKenzies’ Trails West offers day rides as well as pack trips, some of which can be as long as a month. It’s a great way to get into the backcountry with the help of four-legged friends. For more information, go to (mckenzietrailswest.com) on our final day, we simply packed a picnic and parked near the powdery sand banks of the North Saskatchewan River. The cold water tickled our toes, but the sun shone bright on the peaks all around us. We were all alone but for the wind, the rocks and the quivering pines. David Thompson country is a quiet, mostly untouched swath of land leading up and into the Rockies. For those looking for an alternative to the tried, tested and true areas of Banff and Jasper, the voices of Abraham Lake, blown over the wild blue waters, are calling.
If you go: ◗ Don’t leave home without The David Thompson Highway: A Hiking Guide. It’s a great book that provides information on the area’s many hikes. This book can be purchased at Aurum Lodge or at booksellers.

BARTEL (ne Unger), Lydia September 12, 1931 ~ August 13, 2010
It is with saddened hearts that we announce the passing of Lydia Bartel, a unique and amazing woman of God, faithful wife, loving sister, caring mother, elegant auntie, loyal friend. She is survived by her husband Len, her children Ivor (Maryanne Lockwood), and Heather (Rick) Friesen, grandchildren Kyle and Cody Bartel, Joshua, Matthew, Michael and Bethany Friesen, as well as her extended family which included her seven brothers and sisters, and many nieces and nephews. Our mom was born in Ebenﬁeld Steinbach, Manitoba on September 12th 1931, in the era of the Great Depression, to a house-hold that was empty of possessions and full of love and laughter. She was never lonely as a child. She enjoyed helping others and her family; aspiring to be creative like her mother. She enjoyed her schooling both at Bible College and University, graduating with a teacher’s degree. Her love of children was evident in her personal touch in the classroom. She cared for each one individually with a sense of responsibility, also extending that to her siblings at home. A new chapter in her life began in 1964 when she left for the west coast to marry Leonhard Bartel. The births of her children Ivor and Heather followed soon after. Another move led the family to purchase a little blueberry farm in Greendale in 1978. She worked on the farm as well as taught. On the farm, she always had time for her customers and was known in the community as the “Blueberry Lady.” As her own children grew up, grandchildren were born and became ever so important in her life. Between her love for God, her care for family and willingness to help many people, her days were kept busy. The last eight years of her life were continuous struggle with cancer. She was a ﬁghter, yet continued to touch the lives of many for the better at cancer centers in the lower mainland. Thank you so much to the nurses, doctors, and staff at the Abbotsford Cancer Center and Surrey Memorial Hospital who helped so much to ease mom’s pain. Jesus ﬁnally took her home to be with him on Friday, August 13th 2010 with family surrounding her. A Celebration of Her Life will be held on Friday, August 20th 2010 at 10:00 a.m. at the First Mennonite Church, Greendale, 42369 South Sumas Road, Chilliwack. If friends so desire, donations may be made to MCC Canada or the BC Cancer Society. Online condolences can be left at www.hendersonsfunerals.com Errors or omissions are the responsibility of the family after signing this document (Obituary) Henderson’s 604-792-1344

SINCLAIR (YAKES), Margret “Peggy” Ann February, 1931 ~ July 31, 2010
Peacefully and surrounded by love, Margret “Peggy” Ann Sinclair passed away on July 31, 2010 at the Cascade Hospice at the age of 79. Peggy was born on February 28, 1931 in Pouce Coupe, B.C. She was predeceased by her sister Faye, and by the love of her life, Jim Reece. Peggy will be greatly missed by her six children and her many grandchildren, great-grandchildren, friends and by all whose lives she touched. Peggy worked hard in the health care industry for most of her life. When she retired, she enjoyed traveling, gardening, crocheting, shufﬂeboard and reading great mysteries and romances. Peggy always had a smile and a kind word for everybody she met, which generated many good and long lasting friendships that would last until the end of her life. The family would like to give special thanks to Dr. Heather Leyen, Dr. Ronald Bull and all of the lovely caretakers at the Cascade Manor and the Cascade Hospice who supported her and eased her through her journey. She was blessed and fortunate to have such exemplary care at the end of her life. In lieu of ﬂowers, donations can be made to the Cascade Hospice Society at www. chilliwackhospice.org/donations

March 3, 1924 ~ August 14, 2010 Dave Evans passed in to the presence of his Lord and Savior on Saturday, August 14, 2010. His family was at his side. He was born March 3, 1924 in Chilliwack to Alfred and Daisy Evans. He lived his entire life in Chilliwack Dave married Margery Carlton in 1946 and together they built and operated the Midway Store and Café, located on Yale Rd West. Caught in the 48 dood, Dave and Margery made it through and picked up the pieces and started again. His motto for life reads there is no such word as cant. In 1950, Dave and Margery moved into town, to their home which Dave still lived in. Dave was an inventor and builder, many of his houses and buildings are lovingly housing families and business today. During, the mid 60s, a logging accident sent him to hospital where the doctors feared he would never walk again. Once again he drew upon his determination, recovered and returned to work, continuing on until retirement in the 1990s. Dave loved his family and friends. He loved to go camping, eshing and road trips with the family. The spring and summer couldnt come fast enough so he could get out the motor home and hit the road to go visiting. He did this until just 2 years ago when he hit the age of 84 years. He would often drive around town to stop in at various businesses and friends homes, just to say Hi and see how everyone was doing. Dave was predeceased by his loving wife of 59 years, Margery; his parents Alfred and Daisy; an infant brother; sister, Alice and her husband Bernard King and sister, Francis and husband Ray Austin. He is survived by his daughter and son-in- law, Penny and Randy Boldt, grandson, Craig Boldt; sister, Dorothy (John) McLeod, of Kelowna, sister in law and brother in law, Helen and Cecil Denham, of Chilliwack, sister in law, Mary Barr of Cut Knife, SK. and sister in law, Helen Carlton of Unity, SK. several nieces and nephews. Well miss you Dad, but are very thankful for the great memories and wisdom that youve left behind. A Funeral Service will be held at 1:30 pm on Friday, August 20, 2010 in the Chapel of Woodlawn Mt. Cheam Funeral Home, 45865 Hocking Ave. Chilliwack, BC. Interment in Chilliwack Cemetery. In Daves memory in lieu of dowers, please consider a donation to BC Childrens Hospital Foundation, 938 West 28th Ave, Vancouver, BC V5Z 4H4.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★
Aries March 21 - April 19: A month of work and health issues begins Sunday. Yet your main experience will be pleasure this week. Sunday/ Monday feature social delights, happiness (attraction) in love, optimism, entertainment and wish fulﬁlment! Thursday night through Saturday boost your energy and charisma. (Saturday might bring a further development to Sunday/Monday’s attraction.) This week subtly furthers your (fortunate) destiny in work, career, and ultimately, ﬁnances. Even your “down time,” Tuesday to Thursday eve, ﬂows smoothly: rest, think. Remember, start nothing major before Sept. 12.
Cancer June 21-July 22: Start nothing new before Sept. 12. Sunday begins four weeks of travel, communications, errands, curiosity, casual acquaintances, siblings, paperwork, news, and “daily business.” A busy, not important time. It’s busy partly because these activities (travel, communications, etc.) meet delays, misses, mistakes, forgetfulness. Keep a running “to do” list, take a list when shopping, etc. Your home, kids, a security or realty project remain front-and-centre. Finances, intimacy, lifestyle decisions favoured Sunday/Monday. Gentle love, wisdom mid-week. Ambition, Friday/Saturday.
Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Rest, lie low, contemplate, be charitable and spiritual now to late September. Don’t start new projects before Sept. 12. Anticipate delays, mistakes in administrative duties and government, institutional links. A tax or other neglected matter might return to demand completion. But in general, life will ﬂow smoothly, your romantic progress (if you’re in one) pleases, life is sweet and nostalgic! (If you’re single, unattached, late January to early summer 2011 will bring a lucky partnership opening.) Romance, creative urges Sunday/Monday; exciting meetings Friday/Saturday. Work, mid-week.
Taurus April 20-May 20: Reject new starts, projects and relationships before Sept. 12. Loads of work streams your way, but there’s satisfaction, even affection in this. Also, a month of romance, pleasure, charming kids, speculation and beauty starts now! You’ll have lots of relief from all those duties. (But keep your eye on the ball, for late September will bring another basket of chores.) Your status/career meet luck Sunday (best) and Monday. Social joys, optimism, happiness and entertainment arrive Tuesday to Thursday. Your “destined love” is “around.” An old ﬂame? Lie low, rest late week.
Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Projects, relationships and ventures begun before Sept. 12 will almost certainly meet overwhelming mistakes, indecision and delays. So stick with the ongoing, or past situations, especially in earnings and spending – an area that will generally be fortunate for the four weeks ahead. (An “unseen destiny” aids you in money areas midweek.) Double-check amounts on cheques, change at the store, watch your wallet, etc. Relationships demand (and reward) your attention Sunday (best) and Monday. Secrets, intimacy, lust, investments, debt, mid-week. Gentle love, wisdom Friday/ Saturday.
Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start no important new projects, ventures, relationships before Sept. 12. That might be difficult, as your mind naturally travels to the future for the next four weeks – you’re optimistic! Well, enjoy the state. Your popularity grows, social joys enter, entertainment, flirtations abound. A former lover or sweet friend might return. It’s fun and full of bounce, so don’t say no. But on a deeper level, the love here will raise issues of “deep duty,” perhaps of burden, or ”sweet sorrow.” You decide what’s worth what. Duties, sweet or not, appear Sunday/Monday, Friday/Saturday.
Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your energy and charisma soar this week through the next few, Virgo. But don’t start big new (or even small important) projects, nor relationships, before Sept. 12. So that leaves you in a bind: you’re in the best start time of the year energywise, and one of the worst circumstantially. Solution: seize something incomplete or abandoned from the past, and revive it. Best (past) place to look: earnings, money, possessions, rote learning, memory, a sensual contact, ﬁnancial investment/debt, sexual bond, lifestyle change. Work’s lucky Sunday, relationships and travel lucky Tuesday/Wednesday.

Gemini May 21-June 20: Delay all new starts – especially in domestic, realty, Mother Nature and security spheres – until Sept. 12. You’ll be tempted to “jump early” in those domestic, realty (etc.) areas, as they grow large for the next four weeks. Let events evolve: destiny is on your side, especially ﬁnancially. Romance (or the lack thereof) remains a strong secondary note. Love’s opportunities exist right into mid-September. However, better now if it’s an old ﬂame – perhaps from a former neighbourhood. Love and/or friendship are favoured Sunday/Monday and Thursday night to Saturday. Mid-week, be ambitious.

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: A former job, career contact, parenting role, or status position might return now to Sept. 12. (“Destiny” aids here mid-week.) But don’t start brand new projects or relationships, especially in these areas. Instead, seize that past opportunity, or stick with ongoing ventures, while protecting them from delays, mistakes and misunderstood communications. Your social life remains happy, upbeat. A light, ﬂirtatious romance could arrive (perhaps Thursday night through Saturday) – or better, an ongoing one thrives. (A brand new relationship will tend to stay light, not “grow.”)

August 22 - 28 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Start nothing new before Sept. 12. A former educational, publishing, cultural, love, international, legal or intellectual interest, project or situation might return. (Or you daydream about it/him/her.) Returning to the past can reward. If an old ﬂame returns, a strong “career” or ambition streak is involved – e.g., he/she perhaps was once your boss, or a major client. Chase money Sunday (best) and Monday. Travel, communications mid-week – a turn of destiny could bring, aid, one of those educational, international, etc. things! Let things end Thursday night through Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A former investment, debt, secret, sexual, research, lifestyle, criminal/ police, diagnostic or health situation could reappear before Sept. 12. It’s generally favourable, could be a doorway to proﬁt, satisfaction. But think before you leap. During the same interval, start nothing new, especially in these areas. You’re going be dealing with heavy themes, serious matters! Gentle, true love, intellectual growth, mental creativity, pleasurable travel and/or legal process – all continue. Your energy, charisma surge Sunday/Monday. (Someone has romance on the mind!) Chase money mid-week. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Avoid new starts before Sept. 12 – in projects and, especially, in relationships. You’ll have plenty to keep you busy with ongoing links – including one from the past. These might “reappear” after some absence: negotiations, litigation, a relocation, partnership or business opportunity, or even an enemy. Take everything in stride, be ﬂexible, diplomatic. You might face a choice: To join or compete. Joining’s better, as your competition holds the aces right now. Lie low, rest, contemplate Sunday/Monday. Your charisma surges mid-week, triggering success! Money caution after Thursday. firstname.lastname@example.org • Reading: 416-686-5014
