Taser death delay

Slots put on hold for now BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

ive-and-a half hours, 69 speakers and a nerve-wracking four-to-three vote gave the goahead to Chilliwack Bingo’s application to relocate and convert into a Community Gaming Centre complete with slot machines. But that was one year ago Tuesday night. Those driving by the location at the old Mertin GM dealership building on Olds Road will have noticed that nothing but weeds have come up between the cracks in the pavement despite the original goal that the gaming centre would be up and running by the end of this year. So what happened to the project after all this time? “Oh well, things never go as you schedule them,” said Fran Heagy of Chilliwack Bingo. “It’s just taken much longer than we had anticipated.” First up was a traffic study the city asked the organization to do, which is now in the hands of municipal staff. But it turns out the building also isn’t quite what they had hoped. “Initially we were going to renovate it,” Heagy said. “We’ve since rethought that and I think it will be a new building.” Mayor Sharon Gaetz said, from the city’s point of view, staff is processing the development permit, but no new hearings of any kind are required. Some improvements to the Young Road and Olds Drive intersection will also have to be made as a result of the completed traffic study. Heagy said the charities that make up Chilliwack Bingo are anxious to get the gaming centre up and running, but she was reluctant to say when it might be open. “All I can say is we are still moving forward and obviously the sooner the better for us,” she said.

early three years after Robert Knipstrom died after being arrested by Chilliwack Mounties, an investigation into the events leading up to his death continues to gather dust at RCMP headquarters. Knipstrom died on Nov. 24, 2007, five days after being pepper sprayed, Tasered and hit with a baton as Mounties attempted to subdue him. The Commission for Public Complaints (CPC) Against the RCMP launched a “chair-initiated complaint” immediately after the arrest of Knipstrom. Last November it completed its investigation into the incident and forwarded its report to the RCMP for final comment. The CPC recommends that the Mounties take no longer than 30 days to sign-off on reports and comment on whether, and how, it plans to address the issues raised. But nearly 300 days after receiving the Knipstrom case, the report has still not been released. The initial complaint called for

1989 Warns of Act violation

A proposal to incorporate comparative religious studies into upcoming changes in the intermeddiate curriculum sparked debate at a school board meeting when a trustee warned that the recommendation could contravene the new School Act. Trustee Sharon Gaetz said a proposal to intergrate the course into the humanties strand of the curriculum planned for Grades 4 through 10 would violate section 95 of the Act.

and steelhead back in the river. One fisherman told the Times they hadn’t been too successful and were hoping the fishery, scheduled to close Friday, would be extended until they had caught the 75,000 sockeye quota. Crey pointed out that the commercial fleet could also be fishing for sockeye, if they agreed to use beach seines instead of the gillnets that inflict a 60 per cent mortality on incidentally caught coho. But that had Delta MP John Cummins fuming. “The commercial fleet hasn’t fished above Mission for 100 years and DFO [federal Fisheries and Oceans] knows that—they’re just trying to find a way to let the natives catch fish that they will catch and sell illegally anyway.” The commercial fishing fleets of all gear types have caught an estimated 11 million of the unexpected bounty of close to 35 million sockeye this year. “But our guys haven’t fished well for years. I predict they won’t fish next year and may never get another fishery like this one again, and they’re just ordinary working people who depend on fishing for a living,” said Cummins. “There should be one law for all Canadians and instead the gov-

ernment of Canada seems determined to put the commercial fisherman out of business.” The commercial fishing fleet caught close to 2.5 million sockeye in the Fraser River alone this season, but few of those fishermen have tried “selective” fishing. A DFO spokesman said the native fishery will be closely monitored and a conference call placed

on Thursday night to review numbers of fish caught. Fishery officer Mike Fraser, who has been patrolling the waters from Mission to Hell’s Gate told the Times that despite having so many people on the water, the season has gone well with few altercations or issues. “This year and others when there are greater volumes of fish things tend to go a little more smoothly because there are lots of fish for everybody,” he said. “For the most part there seems to be less conflict or problems because there is enough fish to go around.” Fraser said despite hundreds of recreational anglers at places such as Pegleg Bar pulling out fish after fish, those violating the two-fish limit are in the minority. “Any year with an open fishery you do have certain abuses but the majority of people are following the rules and regulations.” Fraser couldn’t give a number of fines issued, but said it was “several” a day. Most caught doing something illegal were making legitimate mistakes, he said. He encouraged anglers to pick up a copy of the regulations at a local sporting goods store or on the DFO website.

he Public Guardian of B.C. is suing the federal government on behalf of three boys who witnessed their mother’s husband, a prisoner, stab her repeatedly while they visited him in an Agassiz jail. The incident happened when Jennifer Lutz and her three sons, all under the age of 11, visited Earl Bernard Nantais for a Christmas social event at Kent Institution, a maximum-security prison in Agassiz, on Dec. 13, 2003, according to documents filed in B.C. Supreme Court. Nantais was serving a 10-year sentence for the attempted murder of a girlfriend. He and Lutz had married Aug. 21, 2003, while he was incarcerated. Court documents say the attack allegedly began without any apparent provocation when the two were seated on a bench in the prison yard. “[Nantais] began talking of [Lutz] joining her baby, a child that had died a number of years earlier,” the documents stated. “He produced a hidden homemade knife and began to stab and slash his wife.” In all, Nantais inflicted 28 wounds, two of which were long slashes across Lutz’s throat and a deep one that extended from the top to the bottom of her abdomen. A guard in the gun tower witnessed the attack, but it was several minutes before authorities could respond. The three boys, who were nearby, tried to stop the attack, the lawsuit stated. Lutz was taken to Chilliwack General Hospital and her wounds eventually healed. Nantais pleaded guilty to attempted murder and in 2007 was sentenced to 15 years. The lawsuit claims prison management failed to protect Lutz from Nantais, despite knowing his history of violence toward women, and that he was at a high risk to reoffend.

Hebert on a Mission His Terry Fox Run is 48 kms in long

W

hen it comes to raising money for cancer research, some people are willing to go the extra mile—literally. Most participants in this Sunday’s 30th anniversary Terry Fox Run will hoof it for the traditional 10 kilometres, but one local fundraiser, John Hebert, plans to run 48 km, from Mission to Chilliwack—six kilometres longer than a full marathon. His goal is to raise $5,000 and to bring hope to those struggling with a devastating disease. “I run for everyone that’s ever battled cancer,” he said. Hebert knows what that battle looks like first hand. He lost a close cousin to the disease in 2002, and his father died of lung cancer four years ago. “He was a big man,” said Hebert of his father, “and cancer basically shrivelled him away.” As terrible as the disease is to Hebert, he believes fundraising for research makes a difference, and he now finds solace in raising money that will help others. “Losing someone you love is undescribable,” he said. “It definitely makes me feel good that I’m giving hope to these people.” This year is the fifth time 30-year-old Hebert will run between Mission and Chilliwack to raise money for research. The first four, from 2001 to 2004, were inspired by the cancer diagnosis and death of his cousin, Stephen Haden. “It was really tough when Stephen died and that was my escape, to run,” said

Local resident John Hebert plans to run from Mission to Chilliwack to raise funds for the Terry Fox Run. Hebert. Running between Chilliwack, where he has lived since 1995, and Mission, where he and his cousin were born and raised just made sense. After a six-year hiatus Hebert has resurrected his intercity run this year, and instead of dedicating it to his cousin alone, he is now running for his dad as well and everyone else who battles cancer. He’ll be carrying a Terry Fox flag. “I look at it as giving people hope, giving myself and my family hope,” he said. So far Hebert has raised $3,650 toward his goal and logged 1,093 km training for Sunday’s run. One of his favourite routes

is around Chilliwack Mountain, a peaceful place where he can be alone with his thoughts. “A lot of times I get emotional,” he said, “so I don’t want to be on a treadmill too much when I get teary-eyed.”

The Amazing Benefits of Serra-Force

News

S

erra-Force is a natural enzyme produced by the serratia bacteria, found living in silkworms. Once the silkworm has completed its transformation into a moth, it uses this enzyme to “melt” a hole in its cocoon, so that it can safely fly away. Nature is amazing, isn’t it?

WEB FIRST See video at

chilliwacktimes.com Shawn Farren photo

Police are calling an early morning car fire in the parking lot of the New Mark apartments “suspicious.”

The astonishing part is... the serratia bacteria affects only non-living tissue - like the silkworm’s cocoon. The silkworm is unharmed!

‘It sounded like a bomb’ BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

A

neighbour says an explosion that coincided with a car fire earlyWednesday morning sounded like a bomb. Chilliwack firefighters quickly snuffed out a car fire at around 2 a.m. in a parking lot at the New Mark apartment buildings. Shawn Farren was sleeping in his thirdstorey bedroom in the New Mark apartment buildings when he was awoken by a “loud bang.” The reputation of the neighbourhood is such that Farren initially tried to go back to sleep. Those plans were aborted when he heard a siren approaching. Rising to check out what the commotion was, Farren said he saw a “big ball of flames out in the courtyard.” A small call, which was later revealed to be a green Chevrolet Cavalier,

was fully engulfed in fire. Several smaller explosions followed the first bang, which Farren equated to a sonic boom. “I don’t know if it was a bomb, it sounded like a bomb, but it looked like one of the cars had been blown up.” Farren grabbed a video camera and began filming the fire. (Those images can be seen on www.chilliwacktimes.com). Farren says he has heard gunfire and yelling in the past at the New Mark. The initial explosion on Wednesday caused Farren’s young dog to urinate on the floor. “It scared him so much, he was just shaking,” he said. “You could feel the shock wave go right through your body. It woke me up from a dead sleep.” RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Lea-Anne Dunlop said that police are treating the fire as suspicious and continue to investigate.

How does that help to improve your health? Serra-Force works in three ways. 1. It reduces inflammation and speeds up tissue repair. 2. It helps to alleviate pain. 3. It enhances cardiovascular and circulatory health. Studies show the serratia bacteria in Serra-Force has been shown to be an excellent anti-inflammatory and a pain-blocker, much like aspirin, ibuprofen and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Research also indicates that serratia bacteria can inhibit plaque build-up in the arteries, thereby helping to

prevent atherosclerosis. SerraForce dissolves only dead tissues (eg. like the silkworm’s cocoon) and like the fibrous layers that clog the lining of your arteries. These layers restrict the flow of blood and oxygen to the heart and brain and are major risk factors for heart disease and strokes.

Serratia bacteria has been shown to be very effective at preventing deposits from building up in the arteries -- particularly after angioplasty (a technique used to open up artery blockages) and after coronary bypass surgery has been performed. In follow-up studies, many cardiovascular patients have shown significant improvement in their blood flow, confirmed by ultrasound tests. If you have concerns about your heart or circulatory health or if you suffer from the pain of inflammation, SerraForce may be just what you need.

Judge forces members to take the cow by the udder

C

o-operative cow owners at Chilliwack raw milk dairy Home on the Range will have to step up to the udder and take care of their own milking thanks to a B.C. Supreme Court order issued Tuesday. Alice Jongerden, who operates as Home on the Range, had been taking care of the 22 Jersey cows for 450 cowshare members between Chilliwack and Vancouver. While it is legal for the owner of a cow to drink its milk, the distribution or sale of that milk is illegal. Fraser Health first issued a cease and desist order to the farm in the fall of 2008. In December 2009, Fraser Health then went into the farm’s distribution depots and issued a cease and desist order to stop distributing raw milk for human consumption. The crackdown and testing was triggered when an 18-month-old child who allegedly consumed Home on the Range milk suffered a gastrointestinal illness, something Jongerden and her supporters deny ever happened. In March of this year, B.C. Supreme Court Justice Miriam Gropper backed Fraser Health’s permanent injunction to stop Jongerden from distributing raw milk for human consumption. After that, and up until last week, the milk continued to flow and be distributed to cowshare owners with the label “Not For Human Consumption.”

Jongerden was in court in New Westminster Tuesday facing civil contempt of court charges for continuing the milk distribution. Jongerden told the Times Thursday that she asked for an adjournment, something the judge agreed to under the condition that there would be no further production or distribution. The distribution is one thing, but because cows are required to be milked every day, stopping production is impossible. “Obviously the cows need to be milked,” she said. “But not by me. The share members have asked for my resignation as their agister.” (Agister is an antiquated term to describe one who takes care of cattle for others for payment.) Jongerden could not say whether or not the milk that comes from the cows in the days ahead will be distributed by whichever cowshare members milk them or whether it will have to be dumped on the fields. “People own these cows,” she said. “What are they going to do with it, it’s up to the share members.” That decision had yet to be made as of Thursday, but Jongerden said she planned on issuing a press release Friday morning. Jongerden’s next court appearance to face the contempt of court charge is Oct. 14. At that time, well-known Ontario raw milk advocate and farmer Michael Schmidt— who in January was acquitted of all 19 charges related to the distribution of raw milk—will apparently come to B.C. in support.

Hibernating not just for marmots

T

he days are getting shorter, the nights longer. The morning is sometimes fog-smothered, and it takes longer for the sun to warm things up—when it’s not dumping rain. Fall and winter are almost here. Time to hibernate. Around this time of year, I start to suspect I had an ancestor who was a groundhog, or maybe a marmot. Once we pass the fall equinox, I’m overcome with the urge to sleep about 18 hours a day, with the rest of that time devoted to snacking. I suspect some of you feel the same way. So this is my unofficial guide to hunkering down and avoiding winter. Clip it out of the paper and stick it on your fridge for easy reference. Hibernation is a multi-stage process. We’ll take it month by month. ◗ September The first intimations of winter begin here, as should your preparations. Like the noble squirrel, it’s time to get serious about gathering provisions. Dig a hole in the backyard, or in a nearby park if you live in an apartment. Bury a steel drum containing chocolate bars, a couple of bottles of Coke, maybe a six pack or two, and a pack of guilty pleasure DVDs. This is your emergency stockpile, in case the winter is long. ◗ October Thanksgiving is a good time to

MATTHEW CLAXTON

Be Our Guest pack on a few pounds of insulation, and it’s immediately followed by Halloween. Don’t go trick-or-treating, as it’s just creepy and sad when adults do that. Instead, hide in the bushes with a goalie mask and a kitchen knife. Jump out as groups of kids walk by. Pick up their candy as they flee in terror. It’s more efficient. Store the candy under your floorboards. ◗ November It’s time to really work on your sleeping. Remember, you have probably built up plenty of sick days at work (you always knew that going in when you had H1N1 was a good idea). Use them now. Also, who really gets that much work done on a Monday? Or a Friday? Build a realistic wax dummy of yourself and set it in your cubicle with the phone stuck to its ear. A looped tape of your voice saying “Mm hmm… yep… okay…” should keep people from bothering your doppelganger for hours.

◗ December The holidays will try to force you into activity. Don’t let the cultural compulsion to take part in the orgy of consumerism force you out of the house! Remember, Amazon and eBay are your best friends. If you can buy it while wearing your underwear and a Snuggie, it’s perfect. ◗ January With New Year’s behind you, you finally have a month free of holidays. Work on your sleeping the way a marathon runner trains to go that extra mile. If you sleep 20 hours one day, try for 20.5 the next. Keep a detailed sleep log. Push your bed closer to the washroom so you don’t have to walk as far for calls of nature. Ignore those calls from work; your boss doesn’t need you that badly. ◗ February By now you will have been fired from work, so it’s probably time to dig up the emergency drum of supplies. Unfortunately, it will have either been ruined by constant rain, or the ground will be frozen solid and impervious to your shovel. Despair. Look at the want ads. Find a job. Build up some sick time. Wait seven months, and start the cycle again. ◗ Matthew Claxton is a repoter with the Langley Advance.

oters of British Columbia will have a chance to decide for themselves what should be done about the HST. But their decision will have no more weight than a strong suggestion. A special committee comprised of 10 MLAs—six from the government side of the legislature and four from the opposition—has voted to take the Harmonized Sales Tax to a referendum a little more than a year from now. Not surprisingly, since the committee’s make-up was dominated by BC Liberals, the decision is the most favourable outcome for Premier Gordon Campbell and his government. It’s also no surprise that the NDP members of the committee wanted to send Bill Vander Zalm’s anti-HST bill—the result of his successful citizen’s initiative—directly to the legislature, to be put to a binding and conclusive vote. Scheduling a referendum for Sept. 24 of next year accomplishes two things for the beleaguered Liberal government and its leader. Surely, they are hoping that a full year will allow angry British Columbians—whipped to a frenzy by the anti-HST campaign—to forget what they hate about the HST, while (they surely hope) the economy recovers enough for riled voters to calm down. It will also give the government some time to marshal its forces, and offer the explanations it should have offered long ago. The referendum approach also favours the Liberals in that it is non-binding. Even if voters vote overwhelmingly to quash the HST, the government is not obliged to listen, anymore than it has listened to ordinary citizens on this issue thus far, although Campbell has pledged to do so, now. On the other hand, the obvious stall could just rile voters even more.

Customer service a thing of the past Editor: After visiting the hospital, I decided to have lunch at a nearby franchised fast food outlet. I paid for my food and was surprised that the little boy behind the counter (I’m guessing he was eight or nine years old), took my money and handled the cash register. (Are there child labour laws in this province?). I asked him for a cup of water with my meal, and was told it would be 25 cents. I was sure, because of his young age, he had made a mistake. However, his mother, the store owner, confirmed that for me to have a cup of tap water with my meal, would cost me 25 cents. I asked “why”, when a paper cup costs only a few cents, and was told it also “covered the cost of storage, etc.” If I had walked in off the street, and hadn’t purchased food, I can understand that there would be a charge for a simple cup of water. However, to pay for tap water when you are eating in a cafe seems ridiculous. It seems one more example of the good oldfashioned way of Canadian life going extinct. In today’s economic climate, one would imagine that a store would go out of their way to provide basic customer service. Obviously, with this franchised outlet, that is not the case. So, for 25 cents, this store has permanently lost a customer. I just hope that other area businesses continue to provide the friendly, good customer service that has been Chilliwack’s trademark in the past, and they don’t follow the example of charging for tap water with food. Dianne Darke Chilliwack

Arrogant style of government Editor: I have always been a firm believer in democracy, and feel that a price should never be put on it, whether it is paying for an elected senate, or having a referendum on an important issue. Fundamentally, from economic studies, I believe the HST

Yet no matter my view on the HST, I feel many British Columbians have democratically selected to eliminate the HST. In a free market we like to say that the consumer knows best. Likewise in a free democracy the taxpayer knows best. Even though I think the HST is good under what I described, a large resounding majority signed an initiative petition to get rid of the HST. To get rid of it would require to pay $1.6 billion back to the federal government. It is not as impossible as some may assume: all one would need to do is get rid of BC Liquor and acquire the billion and a half from there. There are also other areas where no doubt taxpayer money could be better allocated. The fact of the matter is that the BC Liberals have become entrenched in power and politics in this province, and it has lead to a very arrogant style of government. Though it is not their fault, it is just the nature of politics and happens to most governments in power for a considerable amount of time. I once supported the premier, and the BC Liberals, but as a true conservative I can no longer do such. I have cancelled my membership. The fact of the matter is we do not have a premier that respects the democratic will of the people, nor does he support a democratically elected senate either. We have a premier who slams Canada’s intelligence agency director for making some legitimate comments about some politicians in this

country. I have more respect for a man dedicated to Canada’s well-being and national security than a politician who gets very defensive and cries wolf over some comments. Mr. Campbell may have started off with some good policies, but he has now become just another entrenched politician. The oddest thing to observe is the premier’s pandering to special interest groups, with examples being the changing names of locations such as the Queen Charlotte Islands to Haida Gwaii, or the Straight of Juan de Fuca to Salish Sea. Just recently Campbell was all aboard to change the name of Stanley Park to Xwayxway. So what is odd about this? The premier will give in to special interests, but he will refuse to give in to the majority of British Columbians who democratically want the HST gone? It seems time after time British Columbians can see that the interests of this provincial government are not in their best interest these days. It is a shame for the Premier, and a crying shame for British Columbians cheated out of democracy. Sheldon Starrett Chilliwack

Shorter trailers would be better Editor: I have recently moved onto Chilliwack Lake Road in the midst of controversy about truck use of the road in regard to gravel trucks. I am way more concerned about the logging trucks carrying long loads. On Sept. 10 at about 1:15 p.m. I pulled out onto Chilliwack Lake Road behind one of these

logging trucks. I thought that long loads were against the law in B.C. and the reason for that law became clear further down the road. As the logging truck took a hard right curve, the pick up truck coming the other way had to swerve violently to prevent being wiped out by the long logs sweeping his lane. I thought the pickup was going to roll but the driver managed to hold onto it. However, the canopy on the back of the pickup went flying off, smashing into the concrete abutment that would have prevented the pickup from going into the river, and landing in the middle of the road. The logging truck kept on going—the driver probably did not even realize what had happened. That he knew he was carrying a load too long became evident when he made the left turn onto Keith Wilson from the right lane. I tried to read the name of the logging company on the doors of the truck but was unable to do so. Other than the colour of the truck, safety-sign yellow, I don’t know who those loggers are. I would request that they have more consideration for the residential neighbourhoods they are driving through and confine themselves to the short loads they are allowed to carry.

Editor: I just wanted to shout out to the lovely people who broke into my freezer and stole all my food last Thursday night. I guess you must need it more then me. You must have not seen the children's toys in the backyard, which are for my 18-month-old daughter. You must have needed the food more than her. I guess you must have noticed there were no vehicles in the driveway to break into. That's because both my wife and I were working so we could put food into that freezer, and into our 18-month-old daughter's mouth. Both myself and my wife have worked hard to get that food into that freezer and into our daughter's belly so that she can grow up strong. You, my friend have not. Get a life.

SATISFYING ACHIEVEMENT

Ken Goudswaard/TIMES

North Delta United took on the Chilliwack Attack in U13 Gold action at Townsend Field last weekend. It was the first game of the regular season for Chilliwack Attack.

Saturday, September 18

2:00pm

Harry Mertin (left) Bodymen (Ryan Bird, Norm Vanderlinden, Brad Neufeld and Mike White), painters (Mike Wilson and Johnathan Severs), painter apprentices (Jeremy Badger, Manny Khatra and Shaun Simpson), detail person (Taylor Jennings), estimator (Karla Hein), customer service rep (Shandis Loewen) and manager (Jeff Boylan).

At Exhibition Field

Earning the 2010 AutocheX Customer Satisfaction Premier Achiever Award puts Mertin Paint & Collision Centre in pretty rare company. How rare? Out of 430 accredited shops in B.C., just 17 earned this special recognition. And what makes this award even more amazing is the fact Mertin did it in just its third year in the paint and collision business. Mertin inherited the paint and collision business when it bought out Barnes Wheaton GM. Building a new state-of-the-art facility at their Airport Road location meant starting from scratch, something manager Jeff Boylan says allowed them to getting things right—right from the start. “Harry (owner Harry Mertin) said, ‘If we’re going to do it, we’re going to do it right.’” The Mertin Paint & Collision Centre has a paint booth that is one of only four in Canada. Their total air circulation system keeps dust to an absolute minimum. And, when it comes to staff, that’s where Boylan feels Mertin earns its stripes. “It really is a team thing,” he says. “It has to go all the way through. Everyone is looking out for everyone and how they can do things better. The care is there.” To book your Mertin Paint & Collision appointment call 604-792-1391.

Sports Herrmann leads the way Running back Connor Herrmann scored two touchdowns, and Mike Gregory and Maleek Irons added scores as the Chilliwack Bantam Giants defeated Langley 31-6 Saturday. Herrmann scored both his touchdowns in the opening quarter and Gregory added a field goal to give the Giants a commanding 17-0 lead just 15 minutes in. Quarterback Nick Westad connected with Gregory for a 50-yard pass and run to extend the lead by half-time. And while Langley scored to open the second half, Maleek Irons sealed the victory by stepping inside a Langley receiver, picking off a pass, and running the ball back 30 yards for a touchdown. Along with Irons, defensive end Zak Toews registered two sacks and caused a fumble while safety Kalem Todhunter knocked down two more passes to lead the way for the Giants. The Giants hope to exact revenge next week upon Mission-Abbotsford for a tournament loss in August.

The Peewee Blue Giants crushed the Mission 9ers last Saturday 43-12.

Atom Blue squad almost stop 9ers The Chilliwack Giants Atom Blue stepped up their play and pushed the powerhouse Mission 9ers to the edge Saturday in a closely contested game. The Blues fell 19-18 to the 9ers, who went 9-1 last year and rolled over opponents. This year the 9ers needed a last-minute touchdown to

Football briefs squeak past the much-improved Blue squad. Despite often facing two opposing players, Grayson Hardie dug his feet in and provided great blocking for his teammates. Andrew Locke and Kaylee Roger also blocked well to give quarterback Brandt Davies time to throw the ball. “We could have won this game,” said head coach Sean Dallas. “We’re coming along nicely.” Another nice surprise was the play of Jalen Edwards who scored three touchdowns. Edwards had touchdown-scoring runs of 67 and 50 yards and also returned a kickoff 62 yards for six points. On defence, Kole Nelles provided three assisted tackles and recovered two fumbles. Colton Holt, Grayson Hardie and Justin Crooks all had two tackles each. Crooks also forced one fumble and recovered another. Bad news for Langley Bears Kurtis Flynn had three touchdowns and Mason Murphy and Nick Butler chipped in one each as the Chilliwack Atom Red Giants proved they have what it takes to win. The Reds beat the North Langley Bears 32-12 Saturday. The Giants secured a See FOOTBALL, Page 16

Sports FOOTBALL, from page 15 26-0 lead at half-time and never looked back. Jacob Brown ran in for a sweeping extra point and Hudson Harvey threw a bullet to Kurtis Flynn for another extra point. Outstanding defense from the likes of Jayden Okoth, Michael Hopwood and Remi Walde proved too much for the Bears. In the second half, Thomas Nelson and Elizabeth Greggain each ran the ball well. After starting the season at 0-2 with tough losses to both Meadow Ridge teams, the Red Giants showed that with teamwork you can overcome any obstacle. Peewee Blue crush Mission An all-round team effort allowed the Peewee Blue Giants to crush the Mission 9ers 43-12 Saturday. The Giants got touchdowns from seven different players in the win—Emilio Pineda, Jake Troyan, Ethan Mastin, Spencer Breslin, Wyatt Uzick, Gabe Mannes and Michael Lengert. Kick returner Mannes found the end zone on two of his three kickoff returns (one was called back) and had over 150 returning yards, while quarterback Wyatt Uzick completed all three of his passes for 37 yards and two touchdowns. Pineda carried the ball six times for 78 yards while Mannes had five carries for 86 yards. Kickers Breslin and Lengert added converts and Breslin ran in a convert on a broken play as well. Mastin and Troyan, both seeing action as running back for the first time in the regular season, ran the ball for 32 and 38 yards, respectively. Each scored a touchdown. On defence, Noah Chand led the way with three tackles, a sack and a fumble recovery. Bantam Red solid on defence The Chilliwack Junior Bantam Red Giants devoured the North Langley Bears 31-18 in a hard-hitting game with both teams making some impressive blocks early in the game. The Giants were able to move the ball down the field and found themselves winning easily with a 31-18 victory. Thijs Duinveld and quarterback Kirkland Kennedy both scored a pair of touchdowns. Ryan Connelly who had some impressive runs throughout the day was also

able to reach the end zone. Kennedy also connected with Connelly for a 40-yard passing play that set up the Giants first score. The Giants defence played a solid team game with Duncan McCracken and Rajah Sandu leading the way with impressive tackling. The Red junior bantams square off with the Blues this Saturday at Townsend Park. Sprott suffers ankle injury Speaking of the Junior Bantam Blue Giants, they defeated the Mission 9ers 54-18 Saturday. After losing running back Tyler Sprott to an ankle injury in the season opener, the Giants turned to third-string running back Emerson Smith. Smith did not disappoint, carrying the ball nine times for 134 yards and three touchdowns, while blocking back Mario Brizuela enjoyed a seven-carry, 193-yard, two-touchdown (including one kick return TD) game of his own. Brizuela and Smith had help from another parttime running back, starting safety Hunter Larocque, who carried the ball eight times for 162 yards and two scores. Darwin Biamonte and AJ Sagrott opened huge holes on the offensive line, which dominated the bigger but slower Mission line all game. Peewee Red roar back After a dismal first game of the season, the Peewee Red Giants spent a week of tough practices working out the issues and making adjustments. It worked. The Reds shut out the Langley Bears 20–0 Saturday. Kobe Pool lead the team with a touchdown, a sack and an interception for a big run back. Miguel Wood also had a touchdown and an on-side kick recovery while Brody Porter also found the endzone and led the offense in yards gained. Gabe Olivares added a two-point convert to the tally. On defence, the power of the defensive line prevented Langley from getting any kind of a rhythm going as the Chilliwack linemen constantly found themselves in the Langley backfield.

Soft Lift

Is garlic our friend or foe? B

Answer: As we age the bones of the face actually soften back as does the fat in the fat pockets of the face. At the same time our skin expands due to the effects of natural aging. In other words the table cloth is now too big for the table. With the Soft Lift we combine the smoothing effect of Botox with the filling effect of Juvederm fillers. The result is a natural looking lift with no downtime, done in just one treatment! Dr. Marianna Snyman Dr. Marianna Snyman

CHEF DEZ

On Cooking wrapped in its own natural paper-like skin. Do not buy garlic that is falling apart, as this is a sure sign of its age. Additionally, stay away from garlic that has little green sprouts coming from the encased cloves – although these are virtually harmless, they are a sign that the garlic has been stored in an area that is too humid. Garlic is best stored in a cool, dry, wellventilated space and will keep for several months. It is not recommended that you store garlic in your fridge. I personally cook with and consume garlic on a daily basis. There are many great ways to add this wonderful vegetable to a variety of dishes; just practice “moderation” if the thought of the taste in your recipe scares you. One final note: the sprig of parsley that has been added to enhance the presentation of your plate was originally derived from the practice of chewing it after a meal to freshen one’s breath. Dear Chef Dez: I have heard that the common garlic available in grocery stores comes from China. Is this true and if so where can I buy local garlic? Roy R. Nanaimo Dear Roy: Yes, this is usually the case. The sign at your produce counter should say where the garlic is from, or if sold in small mesh bags of three heads there will be a tag on it. Alternatively you can always inquire with the produce staff if you are unsure about the garlic’s origin. A favourite local garlic of mine is ‘Red Russian.’ It has more flavour and usually larger cloves. Local farmers markets or more specialty stores usually carry it. A few phone calls to markets in your area, before you venture out, will save you some time. ◗ Next “Chef Dez on Cooking” column will appear Oct. 1.

eing a chef, I am certain that you will think my opinion is biased when I tell you that garlic is my friend. However, I have reasons to support my love for this little bulb. I honestly believe that most people, who say they hate the taste of garlic, must have been exposed to an overpowered Caesar dressing or Greek tzatziki sauce at some point in their lives. Garlic, when cooked, does not have that overly pungent flavour reminiscent of these raw form recipes. Alternatively, it has a sweeter and smoother temperament and adds a depth of flavour to your dish that cannot be mimicked. A perfect example of this would be roasted garlic. Whole heads of garlic roasted in the oven can be pureed and mixed into an endless variety of recipes such as bread-dough, dips, spreads, stuffings, etc, and it’s one of the easiest things to prepare: Preheat your oven to 450 degrees. Keep the garlic heads whole, and cut off the tops of the garlic heads, just enough to expose the tops of the garlic cloves. Place the heads of garlic in an ovenproof casserole dish equipped with a lid. Drizzle one teaspoon of olive oil over each of the exposed garlic heads and season lightly with salt and fresh cracked pepper. Cover and bake for 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and let stand at room temperature (with the lid on) until cool enough to touch. Serve whole for presentation, or squeeze out the cloves and mix into a variety of spreads, dips, or sauces. Garlic is one of the oldest cultivated plants and has been hailed as one of the world’s most celebrated medicinal vegetables. There are many stories of old that proclaim its pure powers to increase endurance and stamina. It also has many therapeutic properties. Medical studies have confirmed that garlic contains natural antibiotic and cleansing qualities and it is used to treat a wide range of health problems. When buying garlic, you want to make sure that that the bulb or, “head,” is not discoloured and it is tightly

an you resist the power of storytelling? Grandpa Trollson sure can’t, particularly Hans Christian Andersen classics told by lovable trolls and youngsters from the audience.

musical work for multiple instruments that combines written notes and improvisation. “The musicians are given 53 short, easy musical fragments, but they decide which ones to play in order to make it fit with the overall sound. The effect is joyful and a little bit quirky. It’s also the perfect music for people to wander in and listen to for a while, leave to go on a tour, then come back.” Other highlighted activities include observing a group guitar class, a piano pedagogy class and a choir rehearsal, as well as participating in free Kindermusik classes (for families with young children) and a Suzuki violin “Pre-Twinkle” class (for threeand four-year-olds). The academy is working alongside the arts council and the cultural centre so that visitors who come to take in an academy event during opening week can also get a tour of the building and see what these other groups are up to. Throughout the week, there will be painters, potters, dancers and other artisans practising their crafts at similar times to events the academy has programmed.

All week long, grand opening week events will amuse, inspire and educate the public with free demonstrations of various classes and programs, including an “Instrument Petting Zoo” and a special concert given by the academy’s distinguished teachers—and all at no charge. What is an “instrument petting zoo,” you might ask? “It’s like a regular petting zoo, except with musical instruments instead of animals,” academy principal Graham Yates explains. Kids can see, hear, touch and hold a variety of band and orchestra instruments and even receive mini lessons on some of them. “All of our teachers are excited to have the whole community come out and see what we do,” said Yates. “As well as our special opening week events, lessons and classes will be happening as scheduled so when you tour the building, you’ll see it in action. Some teachers will even have their doors open so that you can walk right in and experience what a music lesson is like.” Academy teachers have also been preparing a special concert for Sept. 23.

Obituaries

HUNTER, William Jamieson William Jamieson Hunter went to have dinner with his Dad, whom he lost when he was 8 years old, on September 6, 2010 in Abbotsford, BC. at the age of 86 years young. Time to remember Bill (my Babe), William Jamieson Hunter. Bill was born in Weyburn, Saskatchewan, February 7, 1924 to George and Edith Hunter. They lost their father when Bill was 8 years old. The family, Mother, younger sisters Joyce and Agnes and Bill, came to Vancouver when Bill was 11. He went to Point Grey Junior High. Then he went into the Aero Engineer Mechanic Course through the Air Force. He ended up over seas and stayed until the end of the Second World War. Bill came back to Vancouver after trying out a few other jobs, such as working for the Depot Agent, Mailman (as they were called in those days) for 3 years. Bill took quite a bit of interest at Carpentry work and was hired as a house builder, dnishing carpenters helper and a new life began and ended as a master carpenter. He was self taught most of the way. Bill was a genius in many ways and I think he would say that he was shocked at how things turned out. Bill and I married in 1968; we lived in the west end at that time. He built us a log cabin in the Cariboo in 1969 and then we moved up to Lac La Hache in 72, as he was hired to remodel a lumber mill. Completing that he went to work for a company building houses, then after a few months he decided to go into partnership with a fellow builder, Pete Christensen and between them built approximately 70 homes in the 100 Mile House area. In 1981, Bill was hired as the one and only carpenter for the School District 27 and his biggest job was renovating the boardroom of the administration building in William’s Lake. We moved to 108 where Bill built our one and only house. He worked for the School Board until he retired in 1989 and we moved to Sooke. After 18 years in Sooke, we moved closer to our families to enjoy our wonderful grandchildren and great grandchildren. Bill will be unbelievably missed by his loving wife of 42 years, Patricia; his daughter, Linda Ann, his grandchildren, Simon (Noy), great grandchildren, Marcus and Kira; grandson, Jake (Rhiana), great grandson, Lukus; son, Michael (Shelly); step daughter, Nancy (Richard); granddaughter, Tiffany and stepson David (Karen); grandchildren, Kari, Dori and Tim. Bill also leaves his beloved sister, Joyce (Joe), many nieces and nephews and their wonderful families. Bill leaves many cousins and a step mother in law, Grace, in Alberta. Bill was predeceased by his mother Edith, in 1985; sister, Agnes in 2005. He will be greatly missed by his many, many friends. We would like to acknowledge the kindness and thoughtfulness of the Paramedics, Chilliwack Hospital nurses and doctors, and especially the Abbotsford Hospital ICU ward for their thoughtfulness in making Bill’s and our dnal hours together, so peaceful. Until we see you again, your loving family. A Gathering of Family and friends will be held at 2:00 pm on Sept 26, 2010 at the Halcyon Meadows Clubhouse, 46000 Thomas Rd. Chilliwack, BC

ALLEN, Grace 1913 ~ 2010

Grace Allen completed her long life’s journey on September 12, 2010, in her ninetyseventh year. Born in Nottingham, England in 1913, Grace travelled across the Atlantic Ocean with her family in 1917 to begin a new life in Saskatchewan. She married Hugh Colin (Bill) Allen in 1935, and moved to the Chilliwack area in 1941. In 1944 the family settled at Cultus Lake, where Grace resided until 2005. Grace was an active member of the Cultus Lake community, attending and assisting Cultus Lake Memorial Church and related organizations. She was an exceptional cook, a gifted artist, and a kind grandmother. Grace was predeceased by her husband Hugh in 1987, and by her daughter Gail in 1995. She is survived by her sons Ben and David and lovingly remembered by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. A graveside service will be held at Chilliwack Cemetery, Friday, September 17th at 2:00 p.m. Online condolences can be left at www.hendersonsfunerals.com

Dick passed away at Chilliwack Hospital after a year long bout with cancer. He was a loving husband to Marilyn, only child to Bernadette Hargrave, dad to Laurie Schonhofer (Kevin), grandpa to Cole and Haley, brother-in-law to Harry Vick (Lori). Predeceased by his father William (Bud). Dick’s training as a machinist served him well over the years—he could dx anything, especially on his boat (BJ) when he was 3000 miles offshore. He was a member of the albacore tuna dshing ceet out of San Diego. As a young man he was an avid roller skater at Rollerland, Edmonds Roller Rink and Ferndale. He enjoyed dshing, hunting and anything outdoors. He loved to dance and show off his fancy steps, especially to a polka or waltz. Dick was a fun loving guy, enjoyed cirting with any girls age 1 to 99 and had a wonderful sense of humour. We took early retirement and spent 18 great winters in Yuma, Az. We took many trips to New Orleans, Mexico, Texas, New Mexico, Alaska, the Yukon, and most western states. Our travels took us all over Europe, recently with Cole on a cruise to Italy, Croatia, Turkey and Greece. We also saw Morocco and took a cruise through the Panama Canal then up the Amazon River in Brazil. Special thanks to the angels at 3 North and the chemo staff and Dr. Do at Abbotsford, who were always upbeat and cheerful.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Work, drudgery and intensified health concerns end mid-week. (You’ll still feel a bit down, overburdened, Monday to Wednesday.) You face a month of fresh opportunities, new horizons and exciting meetings – and challenges, opposition, possible refusals. To succeed, be diplomatic, flexible, seek to join, accent other’s desires, seek permission. (You hate to do that last thing; but others hold the power now.) The extremes occur Monday to Wednesday, when great opportunities and great obstacles arise. Join/bond; if you fight, then refusal comes Thursday, and a challenge, a test, Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: September’s pleasure, romance, risk and creativity yield mid-week to a month of practical interests: jobs, health, machinery, schedules, etc. Think ahead Sunday, to career prospects, potential meetings with higher-ups. Fill out an application or “design” a future meeting. Pleasure still calls Monday afternoon to Wednesday eve – it’s social, flirty, entertaining. Your hopes and happiness are high! (And you’ll meet some unusual people.) Buckle down to chores, duties Thursday onward.You’ll see how giant the task is! Be quiet, contemplative. You’ll have enough energy, as Saturday night proves. Gemini May 21-June 20: September featured seclusion, domesticity, tiredness and re-examination of your basic direction in life. But midweek starts a month of romance (a co-worker?) pleasure, creative urges, risk and reward – you’ll ride a winning streak! You began to doubt your plans, hopes in recent weeks: soon you’ll see that some hopes were justified! Tackle career demands Monday to Wednesday: obstacles and opportunities mingle, might result in a career rebirth. Employment’s lucky to January. Thursday casts love in a sober light, yet raises your hopes: Friday, too. Deep sexual, financial changes brew.

Cancer June 21-July 22: The fluff exits, the serious arrives. Sunday/Monday you meet mysteries and financial considerations– and possible intimacy, sex, commitment to a lifestyle with someone compatible. Monday eve to Wednesday brings dilemmas about love, ethics and the law. Tuesday features confrontation, intriguing meetings, attraction or dispute; Wednesday brings bonding, rebirth. Yes, it could be love –or arch-enmity! You enter a month of children, home, security, food and soul Wednesday night. Thursday to Saturday can brew competing interests, cause deep undercurrents in these same zones (kids, home, etc.). Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Domestic friction grows to late October. Remember the benefits of a light touch! Also to late October, a legal, international, higher education, religious, publishing or similar involvement can end. (It might have already begun to cease last week.) This is neither good nor bad, just a natural end, so you can begin anew somewhere/somehow else. The month ahead is NOT a good time to begin a legal (or love) affair, to wed, nor to move into a new home. Careful with sex, money Tuesday, with paperwork, travel, and communications Thursday onward. Sexy attraction (and investment luck) Wednesday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Monetary and sensual urges grow through late October – you’ll feel restless about these, want to travel, talk, exchange paperwork or emails. This is more curiosity than consequence – you don’t have to commit yourself irrevocably to person or a project, purchase or investment. (Though you might. If you haven’t by December, you won’t.) Life is changing rapidly, but these are late-stage changes, so are weak or without a big future. The ones to build on will appear (or re-appear) in 2011. It’s wise to wait! Separations and meetings, Tuesday. Knitting together, “birth,” Wednesday.

Sept. 19 - Sept. 25

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A month of weariness, burdens, seclusion (and delays) ends Wednesday night. The weeks ahead bring increased energy, charisma and effectiveness. You’ll have a winner’s timing! (First timing hint: start new and/or important projects Sept. 26 p.m. onward, not immediately.) This week tests your mettle. Tuesday brings work/ health dilemmas; Wednesday brings the “birth of the new” in these. Others oppose you (almost on principle – warped principle?) Thursday to Saturday – be sober, steady, diplomatic, firm. Money “swells” to late October: steer it to you, not from you. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Wednesday begins a month of quietude, contemplation, planning, government contacts, charitable actions and associations. Your energy levels decline. Take “power naps.” Despite an atmosphere of rest and recuperation, your reserves will be tapped, perhaps strained, by larger work demands, and heightened romantic/sexual charisma. The “love magnetism” lasts into January 2011 – a major affair lures singles! (Perhaps a burdensome one if it starts before November.) Your duties change this week. Embrace a creative/romantic “rebirth” Tuesday/ Wednesday. A lucky meeting surprises you! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Pressures will ease soon. Wednesday starts a month of entertainment, social delights, flirtation and light romance, optimism and plans for your future. Over the past six weeks, you’ve been intrigued by a sense that wishes were or would come true – now the “reality” comes – and it’s a good one! However, your life plans, goals and wishes are changing deeply, mostly due to money factors. This is clear Thursday to Saturday. (If it isn’t clear, examine clues.) Earlier, Monday to Wednesday accent security, family: differing views are an opportunity to grow new common ground.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Two big things start now. One is quite usual, a month of ambition, pressure, career and prestige involvements. All these are undergoing a sea change now to 2024, as Thursday to Saturday will show. The other big thing is quite unusual in its duration: an upsurge in social joys, a mild but sweet upswing in popularity and optimism into January 2011. It could trigger sweet romance! You can use this social upswing to aid your career (schmooze with VIPs, etc.). Now through October a wish can come true about re-establishing home or property. Contact people Wednesday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Midweek, you move from mystery to a month of enlightenment, from research to broadcasting what you’ve learned. (Broadcasting = writing the term paper, giving advice, discussions, media appearances, etc.) Now through October, higher-ups, parents and VIPs will be temperamental, impatient (mostly due to work pressures) – step lightly, be diplomatic, smile – a promotion looms! The weeks ahead feature love, understanding, far travel, legal matters, higher education, publishing, a philosophical outlook. All these are changing “at base,” as late week shows. Start a money project Wednesday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Open dealings become more private, hidden. Overt attraction moves toward intimacy. Negotiations move toward funding. Whatever was an opportunity in the last few weeks now demands commitment and serious action. Life in general takes a deep turn, into mystery, revelation, subconscious urges, sexual desires, investments and debt, change and consequence. Avoid legal involvements, lawsuits now to Oct. 28. Legal matters will also reward you, a bit in October but strongly November/December. Your charisma, energy surge Monday-Wednesday – re-tackle an ambitious administrative project. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014

Elegant Architecture By Cornelia Naylor

cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com As design director for the new Chilliwack Cultural Centre, Michael McDonald of Kasian Architecture likens himself to the conductor of an orchestra. Instead of strings and woodwinds, though, he worked with engineers and contractors— and the Cultural Centre Advisory Planning Committee. It’s a fitting metaphor, especially if you imagine him conducting the Flight of the Bumblebee. Within a brisk two-year time frame, the $22 million, 65,000-square-foot centre—set to kick off its grand opening week this Sunday—was completed this month on time and on budget. “That’s a relatively short time frame for a sophisticated building like this,” said McDonald in a Times interview

The Ron Goldfinch Concert Grand Piano

this week. The project hit the ground running in part because everyone involved knew what they wanted, according to McDonald. “They’d done a lot of groundwork,” he said of the advisory committee. One thing that’s been clear since a cultural strategy for Chilliwack was first proposed more than two decades ago was that the city needed a “facility to host and nurture arts and culture programs and experiences for all ages.” Given that longstanding goal, the thing McDonald is most pleased with in the design of the new cultural centre is its interconnectivity and openness, which he says is all about community building. “The performance centre, the gallery, the studio spaces all pour into this very public front of the building,” he said. The open, transparent, double-height entrance lobby was an unusual choice for a performance centre, according to McDonald, who said such venues are often dubbed “black box spaces” in the industry because they are so closed off from public view. “Here, just along the street, one could be walking by and see in and see the activity of this place, all those major functional spaces gathered into this very accessible space,” he said. Another unusual choice for building a performance or cultural centre was concrete tilt-up construction. While it expedited the construction schedule and helped keep the project within budget, McDonald said venues like the cultural centre are rarely built using tilt-up, so designers, engineers and builders on the project needed to stretch the technique to it limits.

We are proud to have been a part of the new Chilliwack Cultural Centre.

“We arrived at using tilt-up with a lot of creativity and imagination because it was a challenge to even think of using tilt-up for this kind of project at the beginning, but we very quickly proved to ourselves that it was very possible and it would achieve all of the parameters that were set up for it in terms of the function, in terms of the layout, in terms of the constructability of it, in terms of the timing of it, and then ultimately the durability of it.” In the process, McDonald et al broke a Canadian construction record building the flytower, which houses rigging, curtains and backdrops for the stage. The tower was built using 25 tilt-up concrete panels, each 82-feet high—the tallest ever used in Canada. At 45 tonnes each, the panels needed special cranes to hoist them into place. “All around it was really an engineering and construction achievement,” said McDonald. With the innovative use of a cost-effective building technique, he said more of the project’s budget could be focused on the things that were really important for the city, like the 597-seat, state-of-the-art performance theatre, 168-seat recital hall, art gallery with 22-foot high display area, music room, art studios and more. Rather than cramming all these into a rectangular box, the design, inspired by the mountain ranges around Chilliwack, has sought to give expression to each major component, with the flytower standing high above the rest, like iconic Mount Cheam.

The Centre boasts 15 rental areas, for inquiries please contact Theresia Reid, Booking Manager, at 604.392.8000

What is an instrument petting zoo, you might ask? “It’s like a regular petting zoo, except with musical instruments instead of animals,” Academy Principal Graham Yates explains. Kids can see, hear, touch and hold a variety of band and orchestra instruments and even receive mini lessons on some of them. “All of our teachers are excited to have the whole community come out and see what we do,” says Yates. “As well as our special Opening Week events, lessons and classes will be happening as scheduled so when you tour the building, you’ll see it in action. Some teachers will even have their doors open so that you can walk right in and experience what a music lesson is like.” Academy teachers have also been preparing a special concert on Thursday. The main attraction is Terry Riley’s In C, an ambient musical work for multiple instruments that combines written notes and improvisation. “The musicians are given 53 short, easy musical fragments, but they decide which ones to play in order to make it fit with the overall sound. The effect is joyful and a little bit quirky. It’s also the perfect music for people to wander in and listen to for a while, leave to go on a tour, then come back.” Other highlighted activities include observing a group guitar class , a piano pedagogy class and a choir rehearsal, as well as participating in free Kindermusik classes (for families with young children) and a Suzuki violin“Pre-Twinkle”class (for 3- and 4-year-olds). The Academy is working alongside the Arts Council and the Cultural Centre so that visitors who come to take in an Academy event during Opening Week can also get a tour of the building and see what these other groups are up to. Throughout the week, there will be painters, potters, dancers and other artisans practising their crafts at similar times to events the Academy has programmed.

2010/2011 Season Shows

Live, community theatre has been at the heart of Chilliwack’s culture since the 1920’s. The Chilliwack Players’ Guild, a 100% volunteer organization, has been in existence in one form or another for over 50 years and has provided Chilliwack audiences with top quality entertainment – from “Broadway” musicals to hilarious comedies to gripping drama, and everything in between. The essence of community theatre is “Community”. Literally, your friends and neighbours producing high quality productions. Some notable performers in the past include our current M.P. and Minister of Transportation, The Hon. Chuck Strahl who appeared as “Perchick” in the production of“Fiddler on the Roof” and former Mayor Clint Hames who has

appeared in numerous productions and is currently directing the Guild’s first production in the new Cultural Centre, the hilarious comedy “Noises Off”. Our season is chosen to provide something for everyone. This year will feature the rollicking comedy, “Noises Off”, a Christmas Pantomime version of Mother Goose, the mega-hit “Broadway” musical “Drowsy Chaperone” and the time honoured brilliance of “Sabrina Fair” – something for every theatrical taste. We hope you’ll see them all. More information on auditions and upcoming shows is available by emailing info@playersguild.ca or by visiting www.playersguild.ca 09179105
