Delta fisherman is presumed dead after he fell into the Fraser River at a popular access point just off of Old Orchard Road. The 33-year-old man was fishing Tuesday afternoon when he slipped from the rocks and fell into the river. A friend jumped into the river to help, but had to be saved himself. Lang’s Fishing Adventures guides Lang Nguyen and Matt Pace were heading upriver to meet a friend when a fellow boater waved them down and pointed out the wouldbe rescuer on the other side of the river. “I could see hands flopping and splashEB IRST i n g ,” N g u y e n See video at told freelance chilliwacktimes.com videographer Wa y n e P r i c e . The two guides managed to pull the man onto their boat. Pace said the man had been in the water for about 10 minutes and was so weak upon being rescued that he could barely get in the boat. But far from being happy that he was rescued, the man was downcast. “I couldn’t explain his face, so sad; he said ‘my buddy is dead,” Nguyen told Price.

Aside from losing our mind, sleep deprivation can also lead to constant fatigue, tiredness and obesity. According to myriad research, lack of sleep greatly increases our ability to accumulate fat – primarily in the abdominal area, which also happens to be the most dangerous place to store fat because of its relation to metabolic syndrome, a disorder associated with diabetes, cancer and heart disease.

Ultimate Sleep combines serotonin-enhancing ingredients with anti-anxiety/calming nutrients, low-dose melatonin for deep-sleep support and an ingredient to help lessen night-time urination. Ultimate Sleep is the most advanced sleep supporting formula available in the industry to date! The result is better sleep, a healthier metabolism and brighter mind!

Can you imagine developing a compound that safely balances blood sugar levels, reduces insulin resistance, and promotes weight loss? Leading scientists have discovered that PGX, a unique complex of natural fibres, can safely help people balance their blood sugar levels and lose weight. Many people who are overweight are affected by what we call the ‘blood sugar roller coaster’ where blood sugar rises and falls dramatically before and after meals. Over time, this can lead to insulin resistance and weight gain, among other things. When taken with meals, PGX slows digestion, helping control and balance blood sugar levels, which reduces food cravings. PGX also provides a feeling of fullness, allowing you to eat smaller portions and feel full longer. We

1994 Grizzly mystery

What’s become of Winston? That was the question being asked by locals after the wandering grizzly bear, who gained notoriety by prowling the Ryder Lake and Bridal Falls area last year, hadn’t been heard or seen in quite some time. The bear, who was estimated to be 12 years old, was fitted with a radio-transmitter collar so wildlife officials could keep tabs on the 440pound behemoth.

E. coli found in trailer park BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

T

wo days before E. coli was detected in the White Rock water system, and forced more than 20,000 residents to boil their water, about 250 residents of the Cultus Lake Village trailer park were given a similar notice. On Aug. 18, a boil water advisory was distributed to residents of the park after E. coli bacteria were found in the water supply. Fraser Health confirmed E. coli was detected in the water and told the Times that the advisory would be lifted after three consecutive negative tests. The trailer park’s manager, Lawrence Jewett, said Thursday the water

Manager says heat to blame, nobody getting sick

had passed two tests this week and he was confident the latest test would be clean and the advisory would be lifted by Friday. The park owners and Fraser Health were investigating the source of the E. coli, but Jewett blamed the hot weather. “It was 117 degrees in the park,” he said. “The pumphouse was warm, everything was warm. I think that’s what happened all over. If we wouldn’t have had that heat wave it wouldn’t have happened in White Rock either.” Christina Blackburn lives at the trailer park and has complained for years about problems with the water supply. Blackburn alleges low water

pressure, over-chlorination with household bleach, and that garden hoses are used for transporting water underground. “We have had problems with water supply for at least four years,” she said. “That’s a crock,” Jewett responded. “We have just as good water as Chilliwack. In fact, I’ve been here two years and this is the first time we have ever found anything or had questions of any kind from Fraser Health.” Jewett even said that—while he wouldn’t tell the residents this—he has personally ignored the boil water advisory and has continued to drink the water.

“I’m quite fine,” he said. “I’m not sick.” Blackburn alleges the owner of the park has repeatedly violated the Water Drinking Protection Act by using noncertified plumbers, but she has had no response from Fraser Health or the provincial government. She said the chlorine used has even given her health problems. Jewett accuses the 82-year-old woman of being a chronic complainer. “I’m not trying to be rude or snide, but if she doesn’t like our water, don’t drink it,” he said. “Buy bottled water. But 95 or 98 per cent [of residents] are drinking the water and we are not dropping like flies.”

Organized grow op POPPY, from page 1 “In this particular instance where you have acres upon acres of poppies being grown, this is obviously being done for commercial resale value. The people involved in this type of a grow have to have an organization behind them.” Goddard said that there would be investors in the poppies, along with a group to co-ordinate the logistics of the operation. Teams would also be employed to both harvest the seeds at the field, and manufacture the doda powder at another site. The investigation into the field is continuing but police say the owner of the land was not involved in the opium production. The men arrested were released on a promise to appear in court on Dec. 14. The case has already been a complex one, with RCMP drug section officers needing to quickly brush up on their opium knowledge. “There’s very few instances where this has occurred in Canada before so it took some time in order to confirm exactly what it was,” said Cpl.

Chilliwack school district’s Ray Velestuk is moving to the Abbotsford school district.

the deep cuts his predecessor engineered in the district’s last budget. “I don’t think their big cuts were any different than our big cuts,” he said. Velestuk came to Chilliwack in 2008 from the Mission school district where he was secretary-treasurer for four years. He had spent more than seven years before that working in the same position for the Yorkton and Yorkdale school divisions in Saskatchewan. For Velestulk, who lives in Mission, the move to Abbotsford is career motivated. “Abbotsford’s obviously a bigger district,” he said, “and it’s also closer to home.”

illions and millions of sockeye are swimming up the Fraser River putting smiles on the faces of sports anglers, commercial fishermen and Sto:lo band members who rely on the fish as a protein source. The latest estimate is that 25 million sockeye could return to the river—the highest return since 1913—meaning as many as 7.5 million could be caught. On Wednesday at noon, a 32-hour gillnet fishery window opened up that ended Thursday night at 8 p.m. Commercial fishermen were scrambling to haul in whatever they could and processors were pushed to the limits. But despite the rosy news for fish on the river, there are those who don’t want anyone to forget the Fraser River sockeye are still in crisis and this year’s bounty may never come again. “Next year we are back to the low cycle phase of sockeye returns,” said Ernie Crey, a fisheries advisor to the Sto:lo Tribal Council. “Everyone’s happy and our fishermen are happy; there are a lot of fish being caught. But to jump to the conclusion that these returns herald a resurgence of Fraser sockeye is just wrong.” The commission looking into the collapse of the 2009 sockeye fishery led by B.C. Supreme Court Justice Bruce Cohen will be in Chilliwack on Sept. 29. Some might conclude a big

return of sockeye this year renders the Cohen Commission’s task moot, but Crey says quite the opposite is true. “It’s very disturbing what happened last year. Why did the fish go AWOL at sea?” he asked. “People are rushing in with pet theories. No one really knows at this point in time and that’s disturbing. There has to be an effort to find out what happened. “Paradoxically this year is a booming return and I’ve said we need to keep Cohen around even longer to examine what happened this year. Why did a modest forecast turn out to be so terribly wrong?” Crey also discounted comments from some commercial fishing lobby groups that want the Department of Fisheries and Oceans to increase the allowable catch given the big returns. Phil Eidsvik, a spokesperson for the B.C. Fisheries Survival Coalition, said he was worried too many fish would be allowed to spawn causing mass deaths at spawning grounds as fish fight with each other. “I’ve tried to tell people that’s a myth,” Crey said, adding that salmon have been spawning successfully in tributaries around the region for thousands of years, long before commercial fishermen came along to “protect” the fish. “It’s the industrial model in the salmon fishery. How do you suppose salmon found their way into every nook and cranny of the Fraser watershed? They weren’t just put there a couple of thousand years B.C. as the book of Genesis would have it.” Doug Kelly of the Sto:lo Tribal Council also said that despite the huge runs of sockeye, the endangered Cultus Lake sockeye isn’t any better off if its caught alongside the other runs.

hilliwack has already rapidly expanded its fire department and will continue to do so, according to Mayor Sharon Gaetz, who responded this week to a call for more firefighters. The Chilliwack Professional Fire Fighters Association said a fatal fire earlier this month underscores the city’s need for more professional full-time firefighters. Fire crews responding to that fire, at an assisted-living residence, had to wait for backup before entering the burning building. But Gaetz says the city’s fire budget has already more than tripled in size over the past decade, far surpassing population growth. She also pointed to $9.2 million in capital spending and the construction of the Sardis fire hall as evidence that the city is investing in the fire department. “I don’t want anybody to believe that public safety isn’t at the top of our priorities,” she said. In the past 10 years she said full-time fire staff has more than doubled, from 13 to 32, and that the percentage of the city budget allotted to the fire department has grown from 5.6 per cent to 9.4 per cent of total spending. She also pointed to plans to hire 16 fire-

fighters later this decade and a new emphasis on fire prevention that included the hiring of two new fire prevention officers.. “I think we’re working really hard. We have the same goals as the firefighters’ union does and that’s to keep our community safe.” Chilliwack spends far less on its fire department than similarly sized communities. But Gaetz says that is because the city has been able to lean on more than 100 paid on-call firefighters who can drop anything to get to a fire when need be. “The men and women who do that really save the city a lot of money by doing that, and we recognize that,” said Gaetz. “I think we’re a bit of an anomaly when it comes to paid on-call firefighters. We are able to attract and retain a lot of them.” She says any money for new firefighters in the short term would likely have to be raised through higher taxes, particularly because tougher economic times means that the city’s revenues aren’t growing as fast as they were in the early 2000s. “What pays for services in the community are either higher taxes or more people.” Gaetz did, however, float an idea for the professional firefighters to consider. She said that if the union were to look at allowing paid on-call firefighters to fill in for career staff who are sick or otherwise away, that could help the city fully staff its fire engines.

Pace of disclosure too slow, says Epp’s lawyer BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

A

lawyer for Jason Epp, the Chilliwack teacher accused of sexual assault, says the legal process is drawing on far too

long. Anjalika Rogers appeared on behalf of Epp Tuesday in Chilliwack provincial court, where Crown counsel asked for an adjournment until Sept. 16. “We are not comfortable with the pace of disclosure in this case,” Rogers told the judge. She said the defence is still waiting for the video of interviews with two alleged victims. She said the lack of information has prohibited Epp from giving his lawyers specific instructions. She also said Epp has DROWNING, from page 1

When the men on the boat looked back, they saw the fisherman’s body floating face down in the river. But before Nguyen and the man’s friend could grab the body, it slipped beneath the water. Chilliwack Search and Rescue immediately started a search, but the man’s body has not yet been found by Thursday afternoon, despite efforts by search and rescue, local fishermen and police. Nguyen said the rescued man said his friend had worked all week and was “gung ho” about going fishing. The man apparently fell into a back eddy that was 30 to 40 feet deep and which was impossible to swim out of. “He couldn’t have fallen in a worse place,” said Pace. RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Lea-Anne Dunlop said the death is a reminder about the dan-

been separated from his wife and child because of a order from the Ministry of Children and Family Development stemming from the case. Crown counsel Wendy Van Tongeren Harvey told the judge that prosecutors had just handed more than 2,700 pages of disclosure—in digital form—to the defence. She said more than 100 people have been interviewed but that information gathering has gone slowly because the summer months has made it impossible to interview certain people. She also said the investigation of the case is still continuing. By Sept. 16, Harvey said the Crown would be ready to set a date for a preliminary hearing or a trial.

‘Gung ho’ to fish ger of water and the importance of wearing a lifejacket, even when standing near shore. She said police have heard reports of fishermen falling into the river, pulling themselves out and going right back fishing. “They call it the mighty Fraser for a reason and people really need to calm their excitement about how good the fishery is this year and put their safety first,” Dunlop said. Nguyen agreed and urged fishermen “not to rush it” while seeking sockeye. The man is just one of several fishermen to have fallen in the Fraser in recent weeks as record numbers of sockeye salmon have drawn hundreds of anglers to the river’s shores. Indeed just hours before the man’s death, another fisherman fell into the river near Pegleg Bar but was rescued by those on shore.

Moscow: smog and traffic jams in Moscow Russia’s unprecedented summer heat wave has been much in the news. Acrid smog with concentrations of carbon monoxide and other poisonous substances two to three times higher than what is considered safe blanketed Moscow for at least a week during early August. The smog is said to have been caused by the thousands of wildfires Cedric Hughes burning around Moscow and throughout western Russia. Moscow’s top health official said that deaths in Moscow doubled to an average of 700 people a day. At the time of writing, relief appears to be on the way from a northwestern cold front expected to bring heavy rains and colder temperatures. Moderating weather, however, will not wholly relieve Moscow of its smog problem. In 1991, Moscow had 60 cars per thousand residents; in 2009, 350 cars per thousand, and the number continues to climb. As Keith Gessen in his Letter from Moscow, “Stuck” in the August 2nd issue of the New Yorker magazine noted, “The first great post-Soviet fortune, after all, was made not from oil or gas or nickel: that came later. It was made when Boris Berezovsky, a mathematician and game theorist, started selling cars.” While 350 vehicles per thousand still compares favourably to North America’s 800 per thousand, Moscow’s capacity for handling the resulting traffic is already overwhelmed. So much so that Mr. Gessen’s ‘letter’ begins by describing Moscow’s traffic as “an existential threat,” and then supporting this assertion with chilling anecdotes: an ambulance driver lazily throwing snowballs off an embankment, in traffic so long that reportedly his patient had died en route; subway bombings during

rush hour that resulted in helicopter rescue for the injured-no ambulances could make it through traffic-and continuing service because, said a metro spokesperson, “You have no idea what would have happened if we’d closed down an entire branch of the system.” Mikhail Blinkin, a traffic expert is quoted: “The city is on the brink of transportational collapse.”

Moscow was built as a series of walled forts with the Kremlin at the centre. Avant-garde Bolsheviks envisioned a “socialist Moscow of clean right angles” but the mediaeval radial structure worked (not surprisingly) for Joseph Stalin, who merely widened the streets into avenues that provided “a fine, broad line of sight for Soviet leaders during military parades.” While grid cities tend to function more efficiently than radial cities, Kiichiro Hatoyama, a Japanese traffic engineer who teaches at the Moscow State University, says this need not be decisive. In Moscow’s case, in addition to the road organization, are two critical determining factors: driver behaviour and the “the social system which is always reflected on the roads.” Russian drivers are described as “impatient” and “angry” seizing “whatever inch of road is offered them” at however inappropriate the time. Not surprisingly, some relief is provided for the rulers. Mr. Hatoyama also describes a traffic system that accords special privileges for the Russian elite reflective of its age-old feudal structure. This he says “causes many problems.” When asked if he knew of any other place with different rules for different drivers, he answered with a single word, “China.”

Missed plenty, but not enough

I

just came back from our place in the woods where I bury my head in the sand for a few days every year. It’s kind of the opposite of the way you recharge the batteries for whatever digital gizmo suits your fancy—instead of plugging it in, I kind of pull the plug out while I’m at Machete Lake. Indeed, I was quite distraught to learn that our granddaughter’s latest digital toy, an iSomethingorother, was actually able to keep her connected with the Internet and the digital avatars that take the place of up-close-and-personal friendships these days. That was, until the power source died… and we have no facilities up there to effect a recharge (at least, that’s my story, and I’m sticking to it). Now I should interject here, in the midst my Luddite ranting, that there is a major upside to the connectivity (as opposed to personal contact) that the Internet offers. Emma and her family hosted a young lady on an exchange visit from Korea some time ago, and the two girls have kept in touch, often daily, in ways that would not have been possible—or even imagined—when I was her age. They can write back and forth over a span of minutes, when such distances as separate them would only a few years ago have required

Be Our Guest days or weeks. They quickly and easily share pictures, drawings, and their favourite songs. But please, don’t tell her I approve. I prefer to remain like all the other old fogeys who deem all this texting and twittering nonsense as impersonal and socially destructive. In the meantime, I will continue to pretend that, when we head off to our hole in the woods every year, modern technology has not yet followed us there. Indeed, my own cellphone— now several generations old, as electronic devices are measured —remains a truly faithful companion, in that it, too, severs its ties with the outside world while we’re up there at our lake near the top of the mountains, ensuring that I can continue my excuse for dealing with surprises when I get back to work, instead of feeling a need to allow the rigours of work break into my vacation time. According to surveys commissioned by various companies and governments over the past few

years, too many Canadians already short-change their time off that way. And the Computer Age, I recall being told more than once in the glorious 1970s, was going to set us free. Fat chance, eh? By being cut off from the rest of the “free” world over the past couple of weeks, I missed: ◗ the successful completion of Bill Vander Zalm’s anti-HST petition; ◗ the legal contestation of the antiHST petition by business and other pro-HST interests; ◗ Elections BC’s decision to hold back the anti-HST petition until the legal challenges were resolved; ◗ vocal expression of concern by the anti-HST petitioners that there was foul play afoot, and that the legal challenges were merely a ploy to allow Gordo and his BC Libs to circumvent or at least defer the democratic process; ◗ the resolution of the anti-HST petition challenges; ◗ the subsequent release of the anti-HST petition to the Legislature by Elections BC; and ◗ several triumphant ultimatums coupled with declarations of imminent recall petitions by the antiHSTers led by Vander Zalm. So what did I really miss? I suppose there is still plenty of BC Liberal whining ahead. And I’d happily have missed that, too. ◗ Bob Groeneveld is the editor of the Langley Times.

ishing, a casual and easygoing sport if there ever was one, has now claimed three lives in the Upper Fraser Valley this year. On Tuesday afternoon, a Delta man slipped under the waters of the Fraser River and has not been seen since. He is presumed drowned. Earlier this year, fishermen drowned in the Chilliwack River and in the Fraser near Hope. More fishermen have now died in the Upper Fraser Valley than mountain bikers, truck drivers, motorcyclists, small plane pilots, river rafters, police officers, firefighters and drug dealers combined. For some reason or another, many are still obviously not convinced that fishing is dangerous. It is. Indeed, we are fortunate that only three people have died this year while fishing. It is only thanks to several heroic rescue attempts that more people have not been swept away by the Fraser’s strong current. The fact is, standing up to one’s hips, or even one’s knees, in river water is extremely dangerous. We all know that human beings float and are less dense than water. But it’s easy to forget what this means when you’re hunting for a fishing spot on a crowded shore. So take note: the farther you submerge yourself in a river, the lighter you become. If you weigh 180 pounds but one-quarter of your body weight is submerged, 45 pounds of your weight is no longer exerting pressure on your feet. Clearly, fishing is dangerous. But acknowledging the risk and still wading up to your hips isn’t just reckless, it’s irresponsible. Many fishermen have been helped to shore by colleagues using ropes and human chains. In at least two instances, rescuers have dived into the river and tried to pull fishermen to safety only to find themselves in danger. Last week, it seemed like only a matter of time before a sockeye fisherman drowned. That has occurred. We can only cross our fingers that next week we don’t have to report that a would-be rescuer has perished in a heroic attempt to save a reckless angler.

City needs to get transit wheels rolling Editor: Re: Time for Janzen to get on the bus, Chilliwack Times, Aug. 24. It is interesting to me that the current bus schedule controversy is going on while I contemplate how my son can get from Cheam Centre pool back to Fairfield Island by bus. Hmm. Is it possible? Let’s see . . . . So he can leave from the old base at Keith Wilson at 4:57 p.m., getting him to the downtown exchange at 5:24 p.m. on a Sardis 6. And now, he can wait until 6:20 p.m. to get a Fairfield Island bus, use a time machine to take one at 5:20 p.m. or walk home. Or, do what kids usually do, phone mom. Except mom was not home. Now, what about the fall, when he heads off to UFV in Chilliwack. How is that going to work? Let’s leave Fairfield Island at 7:55 a.m. and arrive at the downtown exchange at 8:18 a.m. Can he get to his morning class at UFV? Great, bus #5 takes him at 8:40 from the downtown exchange to UFV by 8:45.That took 50 minutes from Fairfield Island to UFV. No wonder my first son bought rain gear and took his bike. I think what bothers me about the Chilliwack transit system is not that the exchange is at the old Safeway location downtown (which does bother me really) but that the wait times at the exchange are invariably 20 to 60 minutes. Has anyone here ridden a bus somewhere else, say in Delta, where the wait time at the bus exchange is usually two or three mintues. Granted, buses may only go every half an hour. Granted, you may have service on a mini-bus. But you actually exchange buses and get somewhere in a timely fashion. If bus waits are going to be 20 minutes or more for connections, then let’s make the bus loop somewhere people might actually want to be, at the malls, at the hospital, at UFV. What is a destination that people would like? With three drivers and two cars, there are often times for our family when a bus would be a good option. Good for the environment too, as multiple trips across to drop each other off are costly in terms of

We’re footing the bill for HST Editor: The media has brought to our attention the fact that many corporations in B.C. have spent large sums of money to hire expensive lawyers to fight the anti-HST campaign. Even though 700,000 British Columbians have signed the anti-HST petitions, it seems that their efforts may be ignored. Thanks to these corporations who are receiving substantial rebates of their taxes, the 80 per cent of the B.C. electorate that is opposed to the HST has become a very angry entity indeed. There are two important facts that have been ignored in this debate. The first is that the HST initiative is not just a “Campbell Liberal” thing—it was first introduced by the Harper Conservatives. The second important fact that has been ignored is that many of the same selfish corporations that are funding the pro-HST agenda are also substantial contributors to the federal Conservative Party. The obvious conflict of interest is seen both with the

provincial Liberal supporters and the federal Conservative supporters. The Conservatives are in fact in bed with these corporations who don’t give a rat’s ass for the average B.C. consumer who is finding his/her tax bill rising at an alarming rate. I have personally talked with local corporate people who are in favour of the HST because it benefits them personally at the expense of everyone else. Meanwhile, the average consumer is footing the bill for both Campbell’s Liberals and Harper’s Conservatives. Dick Harrington Hope

ICBC here to protect drivers Editor: Re: Beware about lending vehicle, Chilliwack Times, Aug. 24, Page 9. Telling a customer they are not properly covered by their insurance is never an easy thing for us to do. The overwhelming majority of our customers carry the proper insurance and will be covered in the unfortunate event of a claim. When renewing your policy each year, it is important that you closely listen to the questions your Autoplan broker will ask you so that you answer correctly, providing your broker with the information he needs to protect you. Every year your broker will ask you if you are the principal operator of the vehicle you are insuring. While you may be the registered owner of that vehicle, you need to think carefully about whether you really are the principal operator too. The principal operator is the person who will be operating your vehicle the major-

ity of the time. Your broker will help you determine who the principal operator is and advise you on the best coverage options available. While we cannot comment on the specific case your reader highlighted—due to privacy reasons—we can say that declaring the incorrect principal operator of a vehicle can mean you could pay a vastly different premium, which would not be fair to other customers. It could cost you a lot more in the long run if you don’t have the proper insurance protection when you need it. Mark Blucher senior vice-president, insurance, ICBC

Best to spell out river danger Editor: I wish to respond to recent media information concerning risks that fishers are taking on the Fraser River due to it’s hazards as well as it’s beauty which is being abused by the ignorant. Several weeks ago, I had occasion to be in the vicinity of the river bar nearest the Agassiz-Rosedale bridge and was appalled on passing through to see two small children in the river, up to their knees playing with the nearest adults on shore conversing amongst themselves. A large number of others were present along the bar, which was congested including the usual music lovers with the volume up. I am hoping that the parents of those children are locals and have read the paper and realized that they are fortunate to have avoided a tragedy. For those who are not local and not aware of the dropoffs and currents, there is little cost to the installation of signs prominently located to warn them (constructed with metal as wood can be used for campfires). Prior to this, I was at a quiet location and enjoying the serenity the river offers but disgusted by a pile of human excrement next to a past campfire and garbage near me. I would offer that the human excrement be tied to “. . . for brains” of those ignorantly violating our local rivers every summer. Ken Rowe Chilliwack

Outraged by doctor’s action

Editor: I just read Melissa Anderson’s letter regarding birth control and Jesse’s response. I am completely outraged. As far as I am concerned, a doctor has no right to bring her morals into a clinic. If Melissa wants to use birth control, that is her right, and I don’t think a doctor should have the right to refuse her precription. If you do not believe in birth control, perhaps you should not become a doctor where this is something you might run into. Let’s bring up another touchy subject while we are at it: isn’t it better for a woman to use birth control now, instead of possibly having an abortion later? Alexis Rowe Chilliwack

Hands-on experience Editor: This past Friday we decided to go visit the local military museum with some of our out-of-town family. Since we ourselves had never been there, we had no idea what kind of a treat we were in for. It was truly impressive. The volunteers were very knowledgeable and more than willing to give additional information when asked. We were shown what some of the vehicles looked like before restoration and were amazed by the many hours of dedicated volunteer labour required. The fact that most of the restored machinery was allowed to be climbed on, sat in or “shot from” was a big treat for our grandsons. The youngest one was proudly marching around wearing a military jacket and beret, taken from a rack of clothes specially kept for that purpose. Our daughter remembers going to a military museum in Ottawa, many years ago, where everything was “hands off.” Thank you, volunteers, for your dedication to such a worthy cause and for making this an enjoyable educational experience.

I feel it when I pass the homeless man on the street and try to justify my lack of compassion by telling myself that he is just going to use the money I give him for drink anyways. I feel it when I want to push my vehicle past the speed limit or when I am tempted to lie to get me out of an uncomfortable situation. I feel this conflict when I am angry and refuse to forgive someone or when I am having a bad day and ‘fly off the handle’ or act unfairly to my wife. I sense it as I walk

I read in the Bible about a man named Paul who wrote the majority of the New Testament, a godly man who preached peace with God and yet endured this same inner conflict. I love the way he expresses it: “The good I want to do, I don’t do and the bad I don’t want to do, I do...O wretched man that I am!” What Paul suggested was that these two natures within

Bruins top draft pick Steven Hodges hoping to shine at rookie camp

BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

Chilliwack Bruins prospect Steven Hodges takes a breather Thursday morning from his first scrimmage game at Bruins rookie camp.

FREE

Tyler Olsen/TIMES

And so it comes down to this. After moving to Chilliwack, enrolling in high school, practising for a year with a Western Hockey League team and notching his first two junior hockey points, Steven Hodges finally has a chance to make the roster of the Chilliwack Bruins. Only 100-plus other would-be Bruins stand in his way. Hodges and those other hopefuls hit the ice Thursday for the start of the Bruins’ rookie camp, which will continue until Sunday. Drafted ninth overall last year in the WHL’s bantam draft, Hodges boasts all the expectations that come with being a junior hockey franchise’s first-round draft choice. But he still has to stand out. Last year, Hodges attended camp, but making the Bruins was literally impossible: 15-year-olds can only play a maximum of five games while their midget seasons are under way. See HODGES, Page 12

Sports HODGES, from page 11

08277867

This year, the objective is starkly different. “My first goal, obviously, is to make the team as a 16-year-old,” he told the Times. Over the past year, Hodges has invested himself in that goal. After being drafted by Chilliwack, Hodges moved, with his family, up the valley from Delta and enrolled at Sardis secondary school. He also began practising with the Bruins, learning what it takes to excel among the best young hockey players in the world.

Dedicated and competitive players when he was drafted. And while he’s put on just five pounds over the past year—it can be hard, after all, to gain weight when you’re barely 16—he figures a strengthoriented fitness regimen has helped better prepare him for the rigors of matching up against 200pound defencemen. Now, more confident with his surroundings, the other players and the coaching staff, Hodges hopes to make a big impression. Many of the 160 or so players

“ W h a t I l e a r n e d w a s h ow competitive everybody is and how dedicated everybody is,” he said. “They all want to win; that’s the main thing I got out of it.” He also, crucially, learned what Bruins head coach Marc Habscheid wants to see from his charges. “He’s a type of guy who likes a hard worker,” said Hodges. “You’ve got to go hard at practice the whole time, can’t cheat at any drills.” Hodges isn’t a big guy—he was listed at five-foot-11, 160 pounds

at rookie camp have been invited to give the Bruins’ scouting staff an early look at them. If they ever appear in brown and gold, it may not be for several years. But Hodges and draft picks from previous years hope to earn a spot on the team. Still, they have to make themselves seen at rookie camp, according to Habscheid. “Whether they’re draft picks or listed guys, they go on the ice the same as everybody else and those things don’t matter at that time.”

He said the coaching staff is approaching camp with an open mind and has made no decisions about who will move on to main camp, which begins on Monday. “That’s a process. We’ll evaluate them and see who moves forwards.” As for Hodges, Habscheid is loathe to talk of players’ chances to make his team before they’ve had a chance to hit the ice. “We’d like him to but it’s really up to him,” he told the Times. “He’s a young guy who has an opportunity like anybody else, but his play will dictate where he fits and if he fits.”

Peewee Blue Giants triumph The Peewee Chilliwack Blue Giants triumphed at the 2010 Chillibowl this past weekend thanks to wins over Chilliwack Red, Coquitlam, North Surrey and Meadow Ridge. Blue running back Gabe Mannes was named Chillibowl MVP thanks to several touchdown runs during the tournament. The Blue Giants also had scores from Emilio Pineda, Wyatt Uzick and Aaron Gulliker. On defence, the Giants received outstanding contributions from middle linebackers Colin Campbell and Tommy Janzen and cornerback Adam Phillips.

Chilliwack opened the scoring mid way through the first quarter on a 60-yard pass and run from quarterback NickWestad to wide receiver RJ Begg. The Giants extended their lead to 15-0 in the second quarter on a 20-yard pass and run to slotback Filip Horak. After the Raiders countered with a touchdown of their own, the half ended. In the third quarter kicker/wide receiver Mike Gregory hit a 30yard field goal. The Raiders got a score back before Gregory struck again and sealed the victory with a touchdown in the fourth quarter. Giants coach Tom Rutledge credited his defence, led by outside linebacker and game MVP Brandon Tooke. Rutledge pointed to a goal-line stand as a key turning point in the game.

In their final game, the Blues were tied 7-7 with Westside as time ran down. But a 15-yard first down scamper by quarterback Brandt Davies put Chilliwack in a position to win. And with no time left on the clock, Locke swept around the left end and ran 17 yards for the touchdown. Justin Crooks also supplied a touchdown in the wellfought defensive battle.

f that lineup at your favourite local fastfood restaurant seems a little longer than usual this weekend, you can probably thank the 26th edition of the Chilliwack Youth Soccer Tournament. The independently organized, non-profit tournament will welcome more than 100 teams to town this weekend. Games will be played at nearly every local soccer field, although the brunt of activity will take place at Townsend and Exhibition fields.

Kids between the ages of 11 and 18 will take part on teams rated gold, silver and bronze. Some 20 Chilliwack squads will participate for free. Organizer Roland Mickler said teams will be coming from the Yukon, Washington State and around British Columbia. He expects the tournament to attract between six and seven thousand people to the Chilliwack area. “Ev e r y b o d y u s e s t h i s weekend as a camping weekend,” he said. “It has a huge impact on restaurants.”

etting kids into dressage is no easy task. It may be the suavest of the equestrian sports at the Olympic level—with its tailcoated and top-hatted riders in white breeches atop sleek and impeccably groomed horses—but at the entry level it’s a bit like watching paint dry. “The discipline of dressage is a very focused, exact sport,” said local trainer Sue Holtby. “You have to have a very, very long-term, patient relationship with your horse in order to succeed.” To add to that sure-fire appeal, youngsters who choose this equestrian high road usually compete at adult-oriented shows big on discipline and seriousness and small on fun. Ho l t b y a n d d r e s s a g e coach/trainer Wendy Christoff have tried to change all that with the Rising Stars Youth Dressage and Hack Challenge––a show just for riders under the age of 21 that has been running in Chilliwack for seven years. “We’re a unique competition in Canada, not just in our province,” said Holtby, who co-chairs the show with Christoff. “A lot of times they just mix adult and youth together in one show, and we decided that we should have an all-youth show, so we can create an environment and an atmosphere that really encourages kids to come in to our sport.” This year’s Rising Stars competition hits Heritage Park from Aug. 27 to 28. The focus of the show, which has won the B.C. Horse Council’s best competition award, is to encourage youth participation at every level, from beginner to advanced. This year, organizers have taken on the extra challenge of hosting the 2010 Dres-

sage Canada National Youth Championships, so the event is really three shows in one: the Youth Nationals, an Equine Canada Gold show and an Equine Canada Bronze show. On Friday and Saturday— the days of the Youth Nationals—four competition rings at Heritage Park will be hopping all day. The success of the Rising Stars show, which attracts riders from all over B.C., Alberta and Washington State, comes from its fun youth focus, according to Holtby. Besides the usual ribbons and trophies awarded for riders’ performance on dressage tests, there are awards for things like the oldest mount, the smallest mount, the farthest travelled and stall decorations. There is even a class just for young men called the GQ Award. “In our sport it’s primarily girls,” said Holtby. “In Europe, there are as many men as women in dressage, but here it’s just the way our demographic is. We have maybe four or five or six boys competing, and the rest are girls, so we decided to give them one extra special class.” Along with the awards, the show also features educational activities like veterinarians talking about equine health and judges explaining how they evaluate a rider’s performance. The Riding Stars model has proven so successful among young riders, Holtby said there is talk of establishing it as a nationwide program. “They come out of the woodwork because we do all of the other stuff,” she said.

Sweden’s G2 headlines this year’s Chilliwack Bluegrass Festival at Heritage Park on the Labour Day long weekend.

Bluegrass Festival attracts top bands

O

n Labour Day weekend, Chilliwack Heritage Park will be thumping with the sounds of the greatest bluegrass from around the world. Whether you want to camp all weekend or just spend a day, Chilliwack’s 23rd annual Bluegrass Festival is a great way to wrap up your summer. As in previous years, the festival will feature an impressive cross-section of bluegrass bands. Sweden’s G2 is headlining this year’s event. Other bands include

Special Consensus from Illinois, B.C. favourites John Reischman and the Jaybirds, Missouri’s Midnight Flight, Josh Slone and Coaltown from Kentucky, Story House from B.C. The Larsgard Family from Alberta will round out the weekend. The festival offers a great variety of bluegrass from the traditional to the contemporary, and gospel forms as well. The top-notch bands aren’t the only highlight through the weekend. “Many people come to the festival to experience the overall ambience by cam-

ping, taking part in the corn-shucking contests, enjoying the free corn roasts every night and playing their instrument of choice,” says co-ordinator Ana Macedo. The festival will run rain or shine. “The festival is indoors so weather is not an issue,” Macedo points out. ◗ The festival starts at 7 p.m. on Friday and continues throughout the weekend. Reserve tickets by calling the Chilliwack Arts Centre at 604-792-2069 or they can be picked up at the door.

Memorable performances

J

oshua Phillips of Chilliwack tapped his way to the finals of the 2010 Red Robinson Talent Showdown at the Pacific National Exhibition onWednesday, but when the judges were finished he didn’t finish in the money. The 12-year-old graduate of Strathcona elementary tap danced to “Pennies From Heaven” in the kids division semi-finals on Aug. 23 and as a result of that performance, he was chosen as one of the three out of 10 that made it to the finals. Phillips is headed to Chilliwack middle next year and he dances at Project Dance studio. Also in the kids division, but not making it to the finals, was 12-year-old dancer Kyera Fedoruk who did a jazz dance to “Don’t Stop Believing.” In the youth division, singers Anna Canaday,

18, and Emily Janzen, 14, beat out 179 other online entries for their chance to hit the stage for the youth semifinals featuring performers aged 13 to 18 held on Aug. 22. Canaday sang “Mercy” byWelsh singer Duffy and Janzen performed “The Girl in 14G”—a cheeky song about a recluse stuck in an apartment between a noisy opera singer and an equally noisy scat singer. After Phillips and the other eight finalists performed on Wednesday, Corbin VanderZalm, 18, of Coquitlam was awarded the first place grand prize of $5,000 after singing his original tune “One Step At A Time.” Second place went to ballet dancers Danielle Gould, 16, and Vlademir Pereira, 22, both of North Vancouver, who won $2,000 for their performance of “Ballet Pas De Deux.”

Health care jobs on the rise Canada is on the cusp of a major change. The first wave of our country’s aging baby boomers is about to turn 65. With this milestone birthday comes retirement, of course, along with a host of challenges that will dramatically transform the country. Most significantly, mass retirement will have a striking impact upon employment and health care in Canada. As Canadians enter their golden years, they will be turning to the medical community to keep them healthy. In fact, over the next twenty five years, the passage of about 10 million boomers into retirement will present both major challenges and opportunities for our country’s medical system. From dental work to x-rays to inhome support, these new Canadian seniors will be creating a significant demand for health care across the board. In addition to the increased need for health care, as older workers retire, the mass retirement will create openings for advancement and entry into jobs previously held by boomers. In short, the swell in the senior population spells out security for workers in the health care industry and opportunity for students seeking a future with good prospects.

According to Jobfutures.ca, Canada’s National Career and Education planning tool, a number of occupations in the health care industry have been given the “Good Prospect” stamp of approval. By “Good”, the government of Canada is indicating that new entrants into that particular field have “a relatively easy time finding permanent employment in targeted occupations with relatively high pay or attractive labour market conditions.” Of the 40 or so occupations listed as “Good” prospects for 2010, over half are in the health care industry. As the country prepares for the upcoming 25 years of boomer retirement and its accompanying need for increased health care, this number can only be expected to rise-good news for current and potential health care workers. So what are some of the careers that stand to prosper from this mass retirement? We’ll take a look at three of these rising star careers to learn more about the nature of the work, the education required and what one can expect to earn while contributing to this booming field.

The Chilliwack Cultural Centre is accepting applications for a Community Liaison.

ABORIGINAL SUPPORTED CHILD DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM/ABORIGINAL INFANT DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM COORDINATOR (EXTERNAL)

Candidates for this position must be unemployed and eligible or receiving employment insurance benefits, or available for EI reachback.

Dental Assistant Dental assistants can perform a number of duties in support of a dentist. These can include polishing teeth, applying fluoride, preparing patients for dental examinations, preparing dental instruments and taking x-rays. Dental assistants require training in a college program and, in all provinces but Quebec, licensing is mandatory. Once graduated, Dental assistants can expect to earn about $16.51 per hour. The growth of employment for this field is above average and expected to remain as such due, not only to the aging population, but also to the increase in Canadians with insurance coverage and improvements in dental technology. Pharmacy Assistant Pharmacy assistants assist pharmacists by preparing, packaging & labeling pharmaceutical products. They also verify prescriptions, maintain patient records and monitor inventories of medications and pharmaceutical products. Pharmacy assistants require completion of secondary school & a college program in Pharmacy Assistant or Pharmacy Technician training. Once completed, a Pharmacy Assistant can expect to earn an hourly wage of about $14.51. continued...

WORKING & TRAINING Healthcare jobs on the rise continued Nurse (Nurse Aide) Nurse Aides attend to the needs of patients in hospitals, nursing homes and other health care facilities. They may be involved in answering call signals, serving meals, taking patient’s blood pressure, collecting fluid specimens, maintaining inventory of supplies and performing maintenance tasks such as cleaning and sterilizing equipment. A Nurse Aide usually requires a college program with practical, onthe-job training. Once graduated, a Nurse Aide can expect to earn about $14.77 per hour.

The next few years will bring many changes with them. For those Canadians thinking about jobs and what education or training they need for a prosperous future, it’s important to consider the effects of phenomena like the baby boomers. A growing and aging population that requires more health services coupled with new vacancies in these fields present a positive outlook for health care jobs. The three fields highlighted here give an idea of solid directions for students considering a new career in Canada but they are just a selection of the many opportunities that will be opening over the next few years.

Summer Garage Sales Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Tackle those piles of work. It’s nit-picky, detailed work, and all the details are rife with mistakes, camouflaged instructions, missing pieces. But you gotta do it – so march ahead. Important relationships – friends, enemies, lovers, partners, competitors, counsellors – remain unusually favourable. You might give or receive attention. One who is attracted, or attracts, is a “door” to worldly success. (E.g., that sexy person might also bring career luck.) Better if you met some time ago. Start nothing major before Sept. 12. Chase money Sunday/Monday. Be home Friday/Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Romance wafts happily on the breeze! An old flame could grow hotter, especially if a co-worker is involved. Beauty, pleasure and a nice winning streak accompany you. A former recreational or creative venture might return. There’s still plenty of work to do, though. One chore, which might involve education, travel, cultural or media work, will take about two more years to complete. Your energy and charisma soar Sunday to Tuesday – tackle things that usually intimidate you, and see how easily you achieve! Money’s lucky Thursday. Be a friend Friday/Saturday. Career intuition is accurate. Gemini May 21-June 20: The weeks ahead accent your domestic situation, kids, security, real estate, gardening, nutrition and “the end of matters.” Usually this is a good time to decide who and what belongs in your life, and who/what should be left behind. But make no big decisions (in any of the areas listed) before Sept. 12. Your romantic prospects remain high, but attraction might compete with a natural physical lethargy – or, romance and co-habitation make a natural “pair.” You’re weary but lucky Sunday/Monday. Your charisma’s obvious midweek. You’re discovering love’s “other benefits.”

Cancer June 21-July 22: Communications, travel, paperwork, details, errands, casual acquaintances and “daily business” are accented now—and all are delayed or prone to mistakes. Check addresses on mail, figures on cheques, etc. Don’t start anything important before Sept. 12, particularly in these zones. (E.g., avoid a new advertising “mail out.”) You might hear long-lost news, receive a “lost letter,” hear from an old friend, etc. Your home remains sweet’n’sour, but ends “inspired.” Optimism, popularity and social joys bless you Sunday to Tuesday! Lie low mid-week. Your energy, charisma return Friday/Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your money (and career) luck rises, but more from past efforts, contacts, than new ones. Don’t launch any ventures before Sept. 12, especially in money areas. If you absolutely need a job, seek and land it (Sunday to Tuesday are good for this) – but realize that you will want to, will benefit, if you seek a new one within a year. (You’re headed for great career luck June 2011-June 2012, but that’s then.) Mid-week brings happiness, good friends, popularity, flirtations – with a Gemini? But retreat, lie low and contemplate (don’t plan) Friday/ Saturday. The best partner is a friend. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness reach a yearly high – but that effectiveness is confined to ongoing and “returning” projects (and people – a former attraction might be rekindled). Beware starting important new things before Sept. 12. Intellectual, far travel, educational, publishing, religious or cultural affairs flow very well Sunday to Tuesday afternoon. Love is gentle, wide. Your career and relations with higher-ups (including parents, police) are emphasized mid-week.All’s well, but don’t act unpredictably Thursday night. Hopes and friends make a good combo Friday/Saturday!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Start nothing new before Sept. 12. Secrets, mysteries, financial plums, intimate clinches, subconscious desires surfacing – these fill Sunday through Tuesday. (Best Sunday, Monday morning.) Work in the background all week, especially these three days – a government agency, institution, large corporation or charitable organization could be your ally. Wisdom, a mellow mood, and matters of law, culture, education, thought, love and “meaning” arise mid-week – with misunderstandings Wednesday, sweet understandings Thursday. Don’t push anyone Friday/Saturday. All week, conserve energy. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Wishes can come true this week and next – especially former wishes, events you wanted to occur in the past, then gave up on. (E.g., a sweet or flirtatious friend returning.) (You might be tempted by a clandestine romance August and September.) Remember, start nothing new – projects nor important links – before Sept. 12. Relationships fill Sunday to Tuesday – open, exciting, sometimes challenging relationships. Be diplomatic, eager to join. Sex, secrets, intimate commitments, “big” finances arise mid-week. (All’s well.) Avoid ethical, educational, publishing commitments late week. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Delay major initiatives until Sept. 12. Stick with the old or ongoing – and protect these from mistakes and “no shows,” especially in business and career zones. This is a fairly easy, mellow week. You’ll have to work hard – your performance is being watched. But friends, light flirtations, entertainment and happy hopes lighten every day! Tackle work Sunday to Tuesday – success awaits. Relationships, opportunities and challenges fill Tuesday eve to Thursday. Be open, honest, receptive: love’s “around.” Careful with finances, sex, commitments (no pregnancies!) Friday/Saturday.

August 29 - Sept. 4 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Sweet, mellow thoughts, solutions, dreams, revisions float through your head – but if you actually sit down to write them out, you’ll discover they were “gossamer on the breeze” – insubstantial, impractical, even nonsensical. This gossamer is the “chatter” as your lower mind sorts out the past two years. The true results are substantial and beneficial – and sub-conscious. Do events since 2008 seem grim? No worries: you are coming into your power. Your career efforts need pruning: encourage growth by ending/clipping some involvements. Early week, love, pleasure. Mid: work. Late: caution. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Secrets, mysteries, dreams, subconscious desires (and fears) research, diagnosis, health, investments, debts, large finances, lifestyle choices, commitments, sexual intimacy – these are emphasized, and in all, mistakes run rife. However, these are also mines filled with rich veins running through the past – there might be an old investment, a former intimate partner, an old piece of research that holds deep benefits for you! (Most likely to appear Sunday to Tuesday.) But make NO new investments (etc.) before Sept. 12. Romance calls mid-week. Careful with health, chores Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb.19-March20:Thepastisalive;thepresent, as if scared, dithers around, circling uncertainties. So deal with the past – former agreements, opportunities, negotiations, relationships. These yield benefits. Every relationship holds something in its hands: money, love, sex, commitment, the future: especially now. The deeper you plunge, the more you will find, most of it gratifying. You could get hooked on someone, August September! Sunday to Tuesday accent travel, communications. Mid-week draws you toward home, foundations. Friday/Saturday bring romantic, pleasure urges: be honest, cautious. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
