Sex crime nets ex-chief jail time BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
ormer Aitchelitz band hereditary chief Jimmy George was sentenced to 14 months in jail in Chilliwack court Wednesday for sexual interference with a person under the age of 16. He was also given three months probation, ordered to undergo counselling and given a lifetime prohibition from attending public parks, public swimming areas or other places where persons under the age of 14 might be present. George sat next to his lawyer with his head bowed during sentencing arguments and when asked by Judge C.B. MacArthur if he had anything to say, he quietly uttered: “I’m so sorry” before breaking down. The sexual interference dates back to May of this year, but few details can be published. This is not the first sex crime for which

George has been found guilty. In 2006, he stepped down as head of the society that runs Xyolhemeylh Child and Family Services, which provides child protection to native bands, after it was made public he was sentenced to three years in jail for sexual assaults on one or more Chilliwack girls in the 1980s. When the sexual interference charge was made public in June, George was suspended from his board of directors position at the Sto: lo Nation Society. Crown counsel Lori Stevens asked the judge for a sentence between 12 and 14 months. Stevens said while the actual touching was above the clothing and of “a minimal nature,” George had a previous conviction for sexual assault and was in a position of authority.
The court was told that during a police interview when asked about the incident George said that he wasn’t going to lie. “’I’m in a position where I’m going to lose everything,’” Stevens quoted George saying in the report. George’s lawyer Gurpreet Gill WEB FIRST First reported on said that while George did not chilliwacktimes.com want to make any excuses for his conduct and is very remorseful, the incident was an isolated one. Gill argued that his “desperate act” was because he couldn’t face the pressures of life—at home and as chief—and felt a criminal act such as this was a way out. See GEORGE, page 6

Burnaby senior who was stuck at Chilliwack General Hospital for almost three weeks after surgery for a broken femur was caught in the crossfire of a dispute between the Fraser Health Authority and orthopedic surgeons, according to a spokesperson for the surgeons in the Fraser Health region. Margaret Bailie, 86, broke her leg while vacationing in Point Roberts, Wash., last month and was taken across the border to the Delta hospital. Instead of being transferred to Peace Arch or Surrey Memorial— the hospitals that normally accept Delta’s orthopedic cases (Delta doesn’t offer orthopedic surgeries)—Bailie was shipped 115 kilometres to Chilliwack. She arrived heavily medicated with low blood pressure and was

Upfront Briefly Man burned in Kitchen Rd. fire A fire at a Kitchen Road residence Monday evening sent an elderly man to hospital with burns and serious smoke inhalation. The man was in the home’s garage at around 6 p.m. when the fire broke out, according to assistant fire chief James MacDonald. He managed to escape the garage but not before being injured. At last report, he had been moved to an unidentified hospital’s burn ward. Firefighters were able to quickly snuff out the fire and contain the brunt of the damage to the house’s garage and the rooms surrounding it. Most of the rest of the house suffered only light smoke damage, according to MacDonald. The fire is not considered suspicious.

An Agricultural Land Commission decision not to release the Esau lands from reserve threatens to “shackle” the district’s development desires for decades, Mayor John Les warns. “I could visualize a terrific development there of community facilities that would have been second to none in the province. And poof, it’s gone.” The ALC announced its longawaited decision on the 88-parcel and the plan shocked Les.

Dog in hot car spurs action
Broken window leaves man with $300 bill and bloody hand BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
Chilliwack man who broke the window of a truck because he thought a dog inside was in distress is facing a $300 bill for his troubles and vowing never to go shopping with his wife again. Police, meanwhile, are advising the public not to take the law into their own hands, even if an animal is trapped inside a car. D’arcy Surrette was waiting in the PriceSmart parking lot for his wife when a pickup truck pulled up beside his car. As the occupants left, Surrette noticed a small dog barking inside. The back windows were open just one-and-a-half inches. Surrette says he was sweating in his own car, in which a thermometer told him the temperature was 32 C. Outside, Environment Canada reported that the high temperature for the day in Agassiz, the nearest station for which daily records are available, was 25 C. “If I’m dying of heat, what’s this dog thinking?” he wondered. Worried about the dog, Surrette phoned the RCMP but was told that all officers were busy and advised to call
RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said animals in distress are not a police matter.
The dog’s owners emerged from the animal control. The animal control store at 4:22, according to Surrette, 37 office, however, was closed. Twenty-five minutes after the truck minutes after they first pulled into the parking lot.

thing, then you get reamed out,” he said. Contacted by the Times, the dog’s owners would not comment on the situation, although they did tell CBC News that they felt Surrette overreacted to the situation. RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck agrees. After being told Surrette’s story, Wolbeck said, “he did everything right up until the point where he broke a window.” She said animals in distress are not a police matter. Broken windows, on the other hand, are. “The moment that he broke the window, he broke the law.” At least part of that message seems to have gotten through to Surrette. Asked if he regrets his actions he said, “Yeah, I do, because of the consequences.” While he is happy the dog was OK, he added: “I regret it because I didn’t realize the shit would hit the fan over it.” This is not the first time Surrette has been involved in a parking lot drama. In 2007 the Times reported that Surrette was upset after a young girl was left in her car by her mother on a warm June day. In that case, the girl was visibly sweating but would not come out of the car. When the mother arrived, she didn’t think anything was the matter. Surrette was upset charges were not laid against the mother. The latest incident has him saying that he’s no longer going to the store with his wife. And he definitely won’t be breaking any windows next time he finds himself in a parking lot. “I’ve never done it in my life before and I’ll never do it again.”
Chilliwack coroner faces disturbing charges
ormer B.C. coroner Kenneth Glen Mattinson, of Chilliwack, is facing charges following an investigation into allegations regarding the improper examination of the remains of two female homicide victims, according to the RCMP. The investigation began in March 2009 after an RCMP forensic officer at a Langley homicide scene informed investigators at the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT)
Glen Mattinson accused of improper examination of female homicide victims of what appeared to be a pattern of questionable and possibly criminal behaviour by the coroner. The information from IHIT was turned over to the Langley RCMP Serious Crimes Section, which launched the investigation that revealed the coroner’s examinations in the two separate inci-

Mattinson is charged with two counts of offering an indignity to human remains and two counts of breach of trust by a public officer. Mattinson retired from the Coroners Service shortly after the investigation was launched, according to the news release.

Treatment house offers women another solution Rosedale facility given green light to expand by council BY GLENDA LUYMES The Province “Don’t waste your pain.” Those words, spoken by someone at an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting years ago, have helped Christine Brayshaw turn a drug addiction into a desire to help women in the same situation. Sober for six years, the Chilliwack mom recently opened a private women’s treatment centre in a heritage home in Chilliwack. “I wanted to open a centre for women from the demographic I came from,” she said Tuesday. “They’re not living on the streets yet—but the key word is yet. . . . This is early intervention.” Brayshaw has had inquiries from mothers “who still have their children and still have their jobs,” in addition to nurses, teachers and even the human resources departments of large companies. “The women in this demographic are not homeless or prostituting themselves for drugs, but people are beginning to notice they have a problem and need help,” she explained. Called Tranquil Waters, the treatment centre fills a need in B.C. The three-month program is longer than most government programs and deals with the issues behind addiction to prevent women from “knocking on the door of another recovery house
Christine Brayshaw and her husband Rod operate an addiction treatment house called Tranquil Waters Recovery House in Chilliwack. The Brayshaws received approval to expand the centre at Monday’s meeting of Chilliwack city council. in the future,” said Brayshaw. Other B.C. recovery houses help women who are “furthest down in their addiction” and have become “street-entrenched.” Tranquil Waters strikes a balance between government and welfare funded programs and the pricey private coed treatment centres that can charge up to $10,000 a month for services. Women at Brayshaw’s house pay about $5,000 for help and a foundation is in the

works to help those with financial difficulties. The small group of women—up to nine at a time—eat dinner together at a big antique dining table, go for walks in the country and participate in one-on-one and group programs. “We love them until they can love themselves,” said Brayshaw. The mother of one knows firsthand how difficult that can be.
After suffering sexual abuse as a child, Brayshaw became addicted to pain and anxiety medications. “When [son] Justin was born, he was my purpose,” she writes on the Tranquil Waters website. “I read all kinds of books, determined to give him a better childhood than I myself had. . . . As Justin grew up, he needed me less and less, and the less he needed me, the more purposeless I felt.” Brayshaw fell deeper into addiction and was “drugged out” all day, everyday. She and her husband Rod eventually divorced. A first treatment attempt at a government-run 28-day program in 2002 ended in failure. A second attempt, in 2004, led Brayshaw to discover her dream of helping women with addictions. She began working on a degree in counselling and reconnected with her husband. They remained friends until he e-mailed her to say he hoped they would someday be together again. They were remarried on their anniversary date three years ago. “It really is a fairy tale story, but it is my truth,” she said. Brayshaw hopes to give other addicted women the chance to dream again. Brayshaw was at Chilliwack city council on Monday for a public hearing to allow her to expand the clinic from four live-in patients to nine and to allow her and her husband to reside off-site. With her application, Brayshaw included supportive letters from neighbours and former clients. Council unanimously approved the two-year temporary use permit to allow for the expansion. – with files from Paul J. Henderson

Electra fire has Chilliwack link
Sentence given for rehabilitative and deterrent reasons
Local museum’s website affected by blaze in Van BY TYLER OLSEN firstname.lastname@example.org
hen Ron Denman heard that downtown Vancouver’s Electra building had been evacuated, he didn’t think anything of the fact. After all, it’s not like a gas leak in a single building in a city 100 kilometres away is very threatening to the Chilliwack Museum and Archives, of which Denman is the director. But in a nasty example of today’s interconnected digital era, those innocuous events at the Electra have derailed—at least temporarily—the museum’s brand new website. The museum’s website was meant to usher in a new revenue source and another way to reach the community. Until Sept. 24, it had been doing just that. But on that day, a gas leak at the Electra and the resulting chaos crashed the museum’s e-mail and fried both the
current and the backup copies of the museum’s website. Heritage records manager Shannon Anderson is now preparing to spend the better part of the next two weeks restoring the site to its former splendour. She had already spent a week restoring the site Friday, when she told the Times, “It’s very frustrating to have to do this again.” Despite that, Anderson is handling the situation with aplomb and said she was impressed with how the company that managed the servers had dealt with the situation. She is also thankful that undamaged backups were recovered for six other websites she built. Chilliwack Museum and Archives manager Ron Denman, meanwhile, is itching to get the website back up. A temporary version of the website is now accessible, but for five days, visitors encountered a blank screen. Denman hopes that screen did not turn future users away. The loss of the website

September’s fire at the Electra building in Vancouver temporarily derailed the Chilliwack Museum’s website redesign. underscores the new digital direction taken by the museum and archives this year. Denman said the site has been used frequently by both teachers looking for new programs and researchers hunting for photos. Those photos have been a key revenue source, but that source disappeared when the website went down. On top of that, Anderson is now busy for three weeks doing something she had already finished. Once she’s finished, Denman will be more inquisitive about how the museum’s files are backed up than he was in the past. “I have lots of questions about the background systems,” he said Friday.

MacArthur did not seem interested in that argument. “There are always stresses in life,” he said. “The concern is he is abusing children.” A psychological report was part of the sentencing report presented in the court. In it, George was determined to be a low-moderate to moderate risk to re-offend, and Gill asked for a sentence of six to nine months with some community service. In sentencing, MacArthur said the case was tragic given that George himself was sexually abused as a child and the former chief is an otherwise responsible member of society.
“He is basically a good and responsible citizen with abnormal sexual urges,” MacArthur said. The judge told the court that his sentence was for both rehabilitative but also deterrent purposes. “Even if it were his first, the court would be hard-pressed to do anything but incarcerate,” he said. “The message has to go out that you cannot interfere “The message has with children. to go out that you “Ultimately it will be cannot interfere for you, Mr. with children.” George, to recJudge C.B.

Disagreements About the New Impaired Driving Laws Under the recently amended BC Motor Vehicle Act, blowing over the blood alcohol level of .05 leads to an immediateat the roadside-3-day loss of your driver’s licence, a $200 administrative penalty, a $250 licence reinstatement fee and, for repeat offenders, escalating consequences.
THE ROAD RULES
The police have the Cedric Hughes discretion to impound your vehicle for 3 days-longer if you are a repeat offenderand you will be liable for the towing and storage costs. Excessive speeders, excessive tailgaters, street racers, and reckless drivers also face, in addition to existing driver risk premium penalties and fines, immediate vehicle impoundment: 7 days for those travelling 40 kmh or more over the posted limit escalating to 30 or 60 days for repeat offenders, plus towing and storage costs. BC’s Solicitor General justified these new rules on the basis of statistics showing a rise in impaired driving in BC, but cited annual averages of 133 fatalities and 3,000 injuries from impaired driving. The province, he said, has set a goal in honour of four year old Alexa Middelaer, who was killed by a drunk driver in Delta in 2008, to reduce alcoholimpaired driving fatalities by 35% by the end of 2013 which, taking into account projected increases in BC’s population should bring the numbers down to 94 average annual fatalities. Excessive speeders were targeted because “speeding is the number-one contributing factor to motor vehicle fatalities. According to the Insurance Corporation of BC (ICBC), police catch about 10,000 excessive speeders annually.” The Solicitor General also said, “When someone gets behind the wheel of a car and drives drunk or speeds excessively,

it’s no accident, it’s a deliberate choice.”
Within minutes of the new rules coming into effect, the police were issuing prohibitions. But energized enforcement aside, many people are debating these changes. Responsible citizens are unclear about how many drinks they can have. Many factors affect blood-alcohol levels. Barrister & Solicitor Universal condemnation of drunk driving is tempered by concerns about unpersuasive statistical justification for the changes and the lack of due process-some see the changes moving us toward a “police state.” Some suggest that the changes are merely “a money grab by the province.” Some call the changes “overkill,” “ridiculously overwrought” and needlessly aimed at responsible people and not the real culprits, the repeat offenders. Some say the fines and penalties are too punitive for low wage earners while “hardly a kick at all” for owners of “investment portfolios.” The defenders say, “saving even one child’s life is worth it;” “a fine and an impound are harsh lessons, but far less than an early grave;” and “the new law is aimed at irresponsible drivers who “ judge themselves sober when they are impaired.” Some offer alternative ‘solutions’: universal ignition interlocks, speed governors, and photo radar. Some explore the new roles for public transit and the taxi companies. ...Lots of debate and, hopefully, lots more road safety. Whatever the immediate motivation for the legal changes might be, this is a trend that started in Europe, was inevitable, and is irreversible. Cedric Hughes L.L.B. Leslie McGuffin L.L.B.

News SENIOR, from page 1 within the Fraser Health region. Although Bailie is now recovering at Burnaby Hospital, the 18 days in Chilliwack took an emotional as well as a physical toll on the active senior, who still lives in her own home and swims in the ocean during the summer months. “Her family wasn’t there, and she really needed her family at that point,” said Mullen. “I could see her heading into depression.” David Wickham, the president elect of the B.C. Orthopedic Association and spokesperson for orthopedic surgeons in the Fraser Health Authority (excluding Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster), acknowledged in a Times interview this week that Bailie’s ordeal was precipitated by a dispute between orthopedic surgeons and FHA. The conflict was sparked in April when Fraser Health downgraded orthopedic surgeons’ on-call rates, or Medical On-Call Availability Program (MOCAP) levels. Under B.C.’s Physician Master Agreement, on-call doctors required to respond to emergency calls within 45 minutes are paid at MOCAP level 1 while physicians required to respond within two hours are paid less at MOCAP level 2. FHA decided orthopedic emergencies didn’t require a 45-minute response time. “Orthopedic surgery is often not urgent in terms of it’s not unusual for patients to wait and hour, two hours, 12 hours without that
While doctors dispute pay, Fraser Health plan means Chilliwack patients could lose all emergency orthopedic surgery adversely affecting outcomes,” said Fraser hospitals in one day. While the system involves “some” patient Health spokesperson Joan Marshall. To Wickham that is a clinical mistake, and transfers, Wickham said each hospital still he adds that orthopedic surgeons in every has an orthopedic surgeon on standby for other health authority in the province are “life and limb” emergencies. “We will not let any patient in Fraser paid at MOCAP level 1.

Ironically, however, Wickham said patient all the orthopedic trauma cases in the entire health authority from White Rock to Chilli- transfers could become the norm if FHA goes ahead with another plan aimed at wack. Once that hospital has handled five orthopedic care in the health authority. In August, Fraser Health e-mailed the patients, the on-call hospital and physician rotate—up to a maximum of three different BCOA, announcing plans to consolidate the
health authority’s orthopedic trauma care into three or four regional centres. That would mean small and medium hospitals like Chilliwack would likely lose the capacity to offer emergency orthopedic surgeries, said Wickham, and their patients would have to be shipped to a centralized trauma centre elsewhere. “These transfers that everybody’s talking about will become permanently in place,” said Wickham. Marshall, however, said consolidation— now planned for five centres—will allow the authority to concentrate health care money at each centre. “If we can dedicate to trauma centres, we’re willing to invest in those trauma centres as well,” she said. In September, Fraser Health asked the surgeons to co-operate in consolidation and offered to restore MOCAP level 1 rates to orthopedic surgeons on-call at future centralized orthopedic trauma centres. The surgeons rejected the plan in a Sept. 30 letter. While Fraser Health and orthopedic surgeons continue their dispute, Wickham insists patients with orthopedic emergencies in the Fraser Health region continue to receive timely care. Mullen, however, disagrees and is now writing letters to the Minister of Health and FHA’s Patient Care Quality Office in the hope of ending the transfers of patients like her mother and Rose Lee.
Bank robberies on parole nets man five years in jail A man who robbed two local credit unions in July while out on parole for two earlier bank robberies was handed a five-year jail sentence Monday in Chilliwack provincial court. Dwayne Kevin Tomren, 45, of Chilliwack, will only start serving those five years after another prison sentence for bank robbery expires, likely in 2012. Tomren was most recently arrested on July 8, shortly after the Van City credit union on Luckakuck Way was robbed. In that incident, Tomren entered the credit union and passed a teller a note demanding money.
Police quickly tied Tomren to the robbery of the Envision Credit Union on Cheam Avenue the previous day. Tomren pleaded guilty to the two robberies but was handed the stiff sentence because of his previous record. In 2006 Tomren was convicted of robbing a pair of Victoria Scotiabank branches.

Dangerous offender hunt on island
The hunt for a dangerous offender who walked away from the Chilliwack Community Correctional Centre in July has spread to Vancouver Island. Dale Koenders walked away from the centre on July 7. Now North Cowichan RCMP are warning the public there that Koenders may have returned to his old stomping grounds on the island. Koenders reportedly has associ-
ates in North Cowichan. That isn’t far from Chemainus, where he sexually assaulted a 19-year-old woman at knifepoint in 1987. In August, police repor ted that Koenders, whom the courts have deemed a dangerous sexual offender, may have been living near South Fraser Way in Abbotsford. Police are now unsure as to Koenders’ location. He is five-foot-eleven, weighs 183 pounds and has brown hair and hazel eyes.

Good news: Chilliwack stinks
K, folks it’s time to be brutally and odoriferously honest: Chilliwack stinks. But in a good way. Really. Before Province reporter Glenda Luymes wrote her page one Oct. 3 article with the headline “Down on the farm: When urban zones hit rural land, manure can hit the fan” I had seen little discussion about the elephant in the room, i.e. the cow patty in the valley. If posts on social networking s i t e s s u c h a s Tw i t t e r a r e representative of the “buzz”—the conversation that modern-day gossipers have and the chats friends have with one another (and I’m not sure about that)— then when Chilliwack comes up, the often unmistakable odour in town is on people’s minds. Well, at least on (and in) their noses. A brief search for the words “Chilliwack” and “stink” on Twitter came up with a post from Kate from Vancouver who said on Sept. 29: “Drove through the fog to stinky chilliwack the morning.” Fair enough, fog, low cloud, the stink hangs around. Another search for the word “smell” found a few more. On Sept. 25, a supposed “DJ” by the name of Marshall A said simply “Chilliwack smells.” O n Se p t . 2 9 , A l y s s a 3 3 i n Chilliwack, who makes spelling errors like “discusting” and “manour,” said simply “I hate the smell of chilliwack.” You’d think she’d be used to it by now. On Sept. 30, Janet McCulloch from Nelson said “You should smell Chilliwack when you drive through there. Hold your breath for 30 miles on the freeway!” Then on Oct. 6 a woman from Kamloops by the name of Laura
PAUL J. HENDERSON
SimplyA Musing who posts YouTube videos of herself talking about things like—and I’m not making this up—eating a bowl of waffles and ice cream, posted: “OH MY GOD CHILLIWACK, I HATE YOU. It seriously smells like something died, then fell in a pile of poo and now its rotting. ALL THE TIME.” OK, that’s a bit harsh. I’ve lived in Chilliwack for more than four years and I wouldn’t say that I’ve gotten use to the smell because it’s never bothered me. I almost like it in a way. I’ll admit there are moments when the smell can be overwhelming near certain fields. I assume that is from liquid manure. And drive past a field of Brussels sprouts a week or two after they’ve been harvested and the emanation will peel the paint off your car. But is Chilliwack an agricultural community or not? Yes . . . and no. In my neighbourhood, where we have lived for two years, I rarely smelled anything “farmy.” Many of the people my wife and I have met in our neighbourhood have come from elsewhere in B.C., mostly between here and Vancouver, and I’ve never heard anyone complain about the smell and none of them are involved in farming. But I’m frankly surprised this “issue” hasn’t come up more often in recent years as hundreds of people move to Chilliwack from
Abbotsford, Langley, Surrey and all the way from Vancouver. City of Chilliwack spokesperson Starlee Renton told Luymes Mayor Sharon Gaetz gets calls from people who are driving through Chilliwack and want to complain about the “farm-fresh” smell. “It’s ridiculous,” she said. ( Then again, there is a sign saying “Call the Mayor” on the highway.) I had a call this week from a man who said he and his wife think things have gotten worse in the last four years with the increased use of liquid manure. He said family and friends won’t come and visit anymore because of the smell, which seems a bit much. But if it’s true, then we might have a problem if we want people to visit here and move here for things other than agriculture. Notwithstanding agricultural practices that I know nothing about, and which may have changed with increasing industrialization, that smell is a result of this region’s status as the breadbasket of the province. As Luymes wrote in her article, some farmers respond with disdain to the criticism of smell and a popular bumper sticker once distributed by a Langley farm machinery company said: “Don’t complain about farmers with your mouth full.” Back on Twitter, Sadie over at 89.5 The Hawk made a post that came up from my “Chilliwack” “smell” search on Monday: “City folk moving to the valley and complaining about the smell. Uh . . . that is the smell of your food growing.” Exactly. Chilliwack stinks and I love it here.
n Oct. 3, 1910, the first Interurban train rolled down the track from New Westminster to Chilliwack. Over the next four decades, it was the main transportation link for people in the new rural communities. The service rattled back and forth across the Fraser Valley several times a day, taking rural residents to the urban centre and delivering their produce and meats to urban markets. The commuter service was discontinued in 1950, but the track, owned by B.C. Hydro, is in working condition and in use by Southern Railway. Now, a century later, Fraser Valley commuters stuck on freeways due to accidents or congestion are again looking longingly at the train. The Rail for the Valley group argues that the rail service should be a key part of B.C.’s transportation plan. In 2008, the province agreed to do a feasibility study for light rail as part of its ambitious $3billion-plus Gateway plan. When the rail proponents tired of waiting for the transportation ministry to complete its study, they hired their own consultant. Leewood Projects Ltd., of London, England, made a detailed study, determining the endeavour would cost B.C. taxpayers about $500 million for a 98-kilometre route. (The Canada Line cost $100 million per km). Public transit is generally not a moneymaking venture, but the West Coast Express has a remarkable record. According to Translink, the WCE recovers more than 90 per cent of its operating costs, even though it pays hefty fees to Canadian Pacific Rail for the use of its track. Rail proponents argue that since B.C. Hydro owns the track, there would be no lease fee. They note the population served by the Interurban line is three times that served by the WCE, which just added seven cars due to increasing demand. Surely there is enough merit in the rail study for Transportation Minister Shirley Bond to stop ignoring this option and to take an honest look at reinstating light rail in the Fraser Valley. All the pieces seem to be there—all that’s missing is the political will.

Opposition to plan legitimate, not ‘knee-jerk’ Editor, Re: “Coming down the mountain,” Oct. 5 I am a resident of Vedder Mountain Road, and I feel that Mr Kirkness’ comments are at the very least demeaning, if not insulting. How can he dismiss our concerns as a “knee-jerk reaction”? He is planning to blast the side of the mountain away, build a huge conveyer belt down the side of Vedder Mountain and turn our residential neighbourhood into an industrial zone. My daughter suffers from asthma. How will the dust from the year-long blasting and then ongoing daily operations negatively impact her health? How will his proposed operation affect the mudslide situation on the mountain? Will his increasing company profit negatively impact everyone else’s home value in the area? Will the mining site ruin business for the small farms on Vedder Mountain Road that rely upon drive-by business? Our neighbourhood is a quite, rural area. How can placing a trucking/gravel loading site not increase noise and filth? These, among others, are all legitimate concerns—not “knee-jerk reactions.” I’m sure it boils down to an increased bottom line for Mr Kirkness’ business while the rest of us take a huge hit in quality of life and property value. One person gains at everyone else’s expense. He plans to build this site approximately 100 metres away from the nearest house. Imagine living on a beautiful rural mountain side one day, and then right next door to a trucking/mining operation the next. No wonder we are upset. It is sad to see how Mr Kirkness also dismisses the concerns of the Vedder Mountain Trails Association too. I thoroughly oppose this proposal. George Brodie Chilliwack
Gravel plan no ‘great proposal’ Editor: We are responding to an article in Tuesday’s edition of the Times entitled “Coming down the mountain,” which described Kirkness Pacific
Send us a letter TO INCLUDE YOUR LETTER, use our online
Holdings’ plan to build a conveyor down the north slope of Vedder Mountain from its quarry up above. Mr. Kirkness, the owner, re p o r t e d l y c o m m e n t e d that opposition to this was “a knee-jerk reaction and [residents] don’t have all the facts.” It is precisely because we do have the facts that we object, so let’s consider a few of the facts emerging directly from the KPH application and interview. The sign which was so kindly relocated to Vedder Mountain road on Sept. 23 was put there only because someone complained to the Ministry of Energy & Mines that the original smaller sign had been placed inside the quarry off Parmenter Road well behind a razor-wire topped chain link fence. A large tract of Crown land separates the quarry off Parmenter Road and the lots on Vedder Mountain Road 1,300 feet below on the north face of the mountain. The lots on Vedder Mountain Road are zoned RSV1gca, meaning that they are in a Limited Use Reserve Zone, and geologically sensitive. Both lots have had slides on them; one destroyed a house; the other slide closed the road last November. The plan states that when completed they “will likely become sites for residential development.” We are assured that “truck traffic will be the same as it is now.” Just how could that be? The proposal is to remove 127,000 cubic metres of material the Vedder Mountain site which amounts to nearly 12,000 truck loads over the span of about a year. Just to get a sense of the truck traffic generated, we tallied the number of trucks coming in and out of the quarry off Parmenter Road on Oct. 6: 33 trucks in 30 minutes.
“Noise will be negligible,” we need not be concerned. There are half a dozen houses across the road from the two lots or on adjacent properties on the mountain side. Twelve months of excavating, blasting, and continuous trucking will be “negligible”? Mr. Kirkness will eliminate any visual destruction: he will leave a berm of rock so nothing will be visible from the road. The proposed conveyor drops down roughly 1,300 feet and is visible from most of Chilliwack as is the present quarry. In fact his geotechnical report states that “Due to the aspect of the project area with slopes that are highly visible from both nearby residential development and the TransCanada Highway, the visual impact associated with this project may be a major consideration with respect to agency approval.” That water on the north slope trickles down to aquifers which feed the wells that supply water to the residents. All lots have septic systems which are required to be near the surface. Blasting and removing the rock and soil to carve out nine horizontal acres will create enormous run-off problems. The proposal states that the water “will ultimately end up in ditches along roads and crossing farmlands on the valley floor.” We are concerned with this casual dismissal of run-off and its consequences, with the possible contamination of wells and flooding of septic systems, with the likely destruction of a viable salmon stream, as well as the endangermen of our investments in our homes. We do not think that it is in the public interest to destroy homes and habitat for the pecuniary interest of one person. We don’t think,
as Mr. Kirkness apparently does, that this is “a great proposal.” Victor & Sandra Froese Vedder Mountain Road Chilliwack
Truck traffic has begun Editor: They’ve started. The trucks are bombarding Chilliwack Lake Road and the Vedder Bridge. An estimated 40 trucks per day for 40 years—a “small project” by MLA Randy Hawes reckoning. Well, Mr. Hawes, as you predicted, we had our “little meetings” and we had our “little petitions” and you did just as you said you would—legislated the Chilliwack River Valley gravel project through “anyway.” Congratulations! You won the battle. Welcome, fellow citizens, to the Republic of British Columbia where we continue to have no voice. Dianne Holland Chilliwack
Raw milk conspirarcy Editor: As a child growing up in Alberta, I drank milk straight from the cow quite often after it went through the separator of course. Just a thought: do any of the bigwig’s know how to clean a separator? Back to the subject at hand. I guess you could say the milk was raw, but very good. Don’t try to say that was Alberta and this is B.C. A cow is a cow no matter where it is. In my opinion, the only reason for the debate coming from the FHA and possibly the milk producers’ board is that no money is going into their coffers so let’s shut down the ones that are doing the raw milk. Marketing boards in this province have taken away the right for free trade and fair competion. Canada still is a free country, or is that statement just lip service to make the government feel good? So let the raw milk producer’s practise a free trade. I sure could go for a big glass of cold raw milk. Ron Anderson
SkyTrain pie in the sky
Editor: So Premier Gordon Campbell has promised SkyTrain to Langley, but does anyone believe him? To refresh everyones memory, SkyTrain is a proprietary, automatic railway that is now owned by Bombardier Inc. First marketed in the late 1970s, what we call SkyTrain has gone through at least four official name changes and a complete redesign, yet only seven such transit systems have been built and are now relegated to the niche airport people-mover market. SkyTrain was even too expensive for the truncated Canada Line subway and a generic metro system was used and is incompatible with the proprietary SkyTrain Advanced Rapid Transit or ART. Only Vancouver has expanded it SkyTrain system and is the only one of four cities in North America having SkyTrain to do so. Why? The answer is simple economics; SkyTrain costs more to build and operate than comparable light rail systems and despite claims by TransLink, SkyTrain has yet to prove that it has a greater capacity than light rail! The grade crossing argument used by the SkyTrain lobby, is a man-of-straw argument. Rail/road crossings are more than 10 times safer than a road/road intersections. The proposed TramTrain grade crossings will be protected by lights, bells, and a gate. Compare this to a typical light-controlled traffic intersection or the cheaper four-way stop intersection; the road/rail intersection is much safer. If a car driver disobeys a road/rail crossing and collides with a TramTrain, shouldn’t the car driver’s licence be revoked? For the Premier’s proposed $2 billion SkyTrain line to Langley, we can build a “full build” (Vancouver/Richmond to Rosedale TramTrain) and a new multi-track Fraser River Rail Bridge and at least two 10-kilometre LRT/streetcar lines in Surrey and Langley. It seems Premier Campbell is waiting at the station for a SkyTrain that will never come. Malcolm Johnston Light Rail Committee, Rail for the Valley, Delta

It’s time to let God be God, not who you think he is SHAWN VANDOP Promontory Community Church
aybe you heard about the guy who went to fix the antenna on his pitched roof. In order to keep himself secure he tied one end of a rope around his waist and the other end to the bumper of his car. As he hung over one side of his roof fixing his antenna his wife decided to go shopping . . . in the car. The thing that he thought was his security was the thing that almost did him in. We can all be guilty of tying ourselves to things that we think are secure. Money, relationships, education, religion—we all have something. The problem is that
most of our security comes from believing what others have told us to believe. In the end our beliefs become preferences rather than convictions. It’s the same with God. Most of the world believes in him in some way, but it’s a belief often secured by our upbringing, family tradition or something we saw on Oprah. Rarely do you find people whose belief in God is a core conviction in their life. I can understand why. God as a preference makes him easier to ignore or even discard when he fails to live up to what we think he should be or do. God as a preference allows people to put him in a box, defining who he is, what he does and how he acts. I see
it in how people talk about God. “I believe in God in my own way” they say, or “I don’t believe in God because of all the evil I see.” But what if God has revealed Himself in a way that is not your way? Would you be willing to give up your way of believing in God? I ’ l l b e h o n e s t . I ’m g u i l t y of defining God through my preferences. I find it easy to question his lack of willingness to step in and do something about all the crazy stuff I see happening in the world. Truth be told, I do have moments where I get very disappointed with God. But I’ve also realized that I would rather be disappointed with God than without him. Over time,

with him. It’s called prayer. It feels kind of weird at first but God tells us in the Bible that he loves it when we talk to him. You might even be really bold and visit one of the imperfect churches in our community where you can gather with a bunch of imperfect people to learn about a perfect God. It’s important to figure it out, to form some convictions about what you believe. It may be the very thing that keeps you from waking up one day and discovering that you secured your life to things that were never secure in the first place. ◗ Shawn is pastor of Promontory Community Church.

I’ve discovered that my preferences tend to frustrate me whereas my convictions free me. What about you? Is it time to stop placing God in a box and defining him through your own personal filters? Maybe it’s time to let God be God and let him be who he is rather than what you think he should be. Maybe it is time to actually figure out who God is and what he has to say about himself. Maybe it is time to transition from preference to conviction. If you’re willing to take that step, a good place to begin is by picking up the Bible.

Can’t get any worse than winless BY TYLER OLSEN firstname.lastname@example.org
hen you lose every game, it’s hard to call your season a success. But while the Chilliwack Huskers nurse their wounds, head coach Luke Acheson is looking forward to next season with optimism and the knowledge that things can only get better. “Despite making some good moves and obtaining some good players, we struggled this year,” Acheson told the Times. “But I think we did take some steps in the right direction.” Fielding a team with an average age of around 19, the Huskers routinely faced off against older, more experienced squads. And while the result on the scoreboard wasn’t always pretty, Acheson said there were positives to take away from the season. “Throughout the season we were able to see glimpses of good things to come,” he said. While his young squad was often overmatched, Acheson hopes that experience may pay off down the road. “There’s really no substitution for game-time experience.” And the knowledge that there are better, stronger, faster players out there can be a great motivator during the off-season, Acheson said, pointing to his own junior football experience. “I knew that if I’m going to be competing against this guy, I need to get that much better,” he said. This year’s young squad also means that the Huskers will only graduate three of this year’s starters because of age.
The hapless Huskers lost all 10 games this season so things can only improve. Other players may or may not move up to the college level, depending on a range of factors, and Acheson says he will try to promote as many players as he can. But whatever the case, next year’s team will be an older, more mature squad. The young squad also means that whereas last year Acheson had to fill some 20 holes, there are maybe half as many gaps to plug during this off-season.
Huskers named to all-star teams
Two Huskers were named to the British Columbia Football Conference’s year-end all-star team Tuesday. Offensive lineman Mike McLean and linebacker Mike Decloedt were named to the squad. A notable absence was that of Jason Dumas, who was left off the team despite amassing six interceptions over the sea-
son. That omission disappointed Acheson, who thought Dumas had done more than enough to warrant a spot on the team. Meanwhile, the Huskers handed out their own awards Monday night. Receiver Adam Leggott received offensive MVP honours, while Jason Bates took the defensive MVP award. Kick return specialist Ben Skerratt was named special teams MVP. Dylan Belair was named offensive rookie of the year while Dan Coffin was named best defensive rookie. Decloedt and Dumas shared the most inspirational player award, while Dan Broberg and Skerratt were handed the coaches award, a prize that goes to those players who best exemplify what it means to be a Husker.
Are You Suffering From Gout ?
B Bruce FOURNIER
The hard working nice guy.
elieve it or not, gout is a type of arthritis. It is usually characterized by sudden, severe attacks of joint pain and swelling in the affected area. Gout usually attacks one painful joint at a time.
Gout is typically a condition associated with middle age, and oddly enough, is ten times more common in men than women. Gout attacks usually occur in people in their mid-forties and is more common in countries with high standards of living, mainly because our diets play such a large role in this condition. Gout affects about 1% of the population. The pain and swelling of a gout attack is caused by uric acid crystals building up in the joint and leading to inflammation. If there's too much uric acid in the blood, or if your kidneys can't get rid of it quickly enough, it may begin to form crystals that collect in the joints, skin, and other soft tissues.
There are certain high-protein foods that can make the body produce too much uric acid, which can trigger gout. Beverages such as tea, coffee, cocoa, and especially alcohol, often leads to extra water loss from the body, which can cause gout.

An unfriendly dub welcoming Back from NHL, big Chief penalized, dropped on his butt
Gamble in net
With Gamble starting in net, incumbent starter Lucas Gore was scratched. The absence of Gore—one of four 20-year-olds still on the Bruins roster—allowed Neigum to draw back into the lineup after sitting out Saturday’s home opener against the Kamloops Blazers. The Bruins’ brass have until next Friday to trade or release one of its four overage players—Gore, Neigum, Manning and defender Jeff Einhorn.
BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
he Chilliwack Bruins welcomed towering Spokane Chiefs defenceman Jared Cowen back to the Western Hockey League Tuesday by planting him on his butt, putting him in the penalty box and topping his team on the scoreboard. The 2-1 victory over the Spokane Chiefs was the Bruins’ third straight after dropping their season opener. Cowen, the Chiefs captain and a hulking six-foot-five defender just back from Ottawa Senators training camp, was decked early by the Bruins’ Shayne Neigum. Minutes later he was goaded into a penalty by Ryan Howse. The Chiefs’ captain was still in the sin bin when Brandon Manning opened the scoring by drilling a rolling puck through a screen. Cowen’s penalty was just one of three firstperiod infractions drawn by the pair of Ryan Howse and Roman Horak. And while the Chiefs were the first team that stopped either player from scoring, the duo were clearly the best players on the ice, particularly in the opening 20 minutes. Only a rash of clutch saves by Chiefs netminder James Reid allowed Spokane to tie the game on its own power play late in the second period.
Bruin celebrity dinner Oct. 18
Chilliwack Bruins star Ryan Howse chats with Spokane Chiefs captain Jared Cowen seconds before being upended by the towering defenceman. The Bruins scored on the ensuing power play. Spokane entered the game with the second-ranked power play in the league. But at the top of the list was, and still is, the Bruins. Chilliwack showed why in the third period when Robin Soudek banged home the winner off a rebound from a Manning point shot. The goal was Soudek’s first as a Bruin but,
considering he’s skating alongside Howse and Horak on the front line, probably not his last. Despite pressure from the Chiefs to tie the game, starter Braden Gamble held the fort, turning away the last of the 28 Chiefs shots on the night en route to being named the game’s first star.

Brett Johnston demonstrates a bed bug eradication technique that’s new to Canada: Cryonite. It freezes the bugs without the use of pesticides.
Freezing out bed bugs
BY JOHN KURUCZ Postmedia News
hey feed almost exclusively at night, make their best effort to hide during the day and prey on people when they’re least suspecting it. Their primary food source? Human blood. Taking all that into account, it’s fair to say bed bugs share a lot in common with your everyday vampire, but one Lower Mainland company is at the forefront of new technology to eradicate the household pests. Canadian Pest Control Ltd. is set to roll out a natural combatant in the war on bed bugs, called Cryonite. “Cryonite is a freezing process. It turns CO2 in a gas canister, the same as you have in the back of a restaurant to turn pop into fizzy pop, into super cold snow, which is blown out under pressure,” said Brett Johnston, general manager of Canadian Pest Control. “The super cold particles of snow hit the bug, shock the bug, and they cannot adapt to the massive drop in temperature—and they die from shock.” Though used in Europe and the United States for decades, Cryonite was only recently given the regulatory green light by the federal government. Other methods used to kill bed bugs have traditionally involved pesticides, heat treatments, steamers and vacuums. Cryonite, however, is a more efficient way to kill the bugs, and the process can be completed quickly without
masks, respirators or the use of any pesticides. In fact, those having their properties treated with Cryonite can remain in their homes while the process takes place. “The great thing about Cryonite is that it’s immediate,” Johnston said. “The real kicker with Cryonite is that it kills eggs. Pesticides don’t kill eggs, but the super cooling is something that penetrates the egg and kills the egg.” Bed bugs have enjoyed a worldwide resurgence since the late 1990s and early 2000s and a number of theories exist as to why that’s happened. In the Metro Vancouver context, Johnston said the bug’s proliferation is likely due to the multitude of cultures that use Vancouver as their starting point before scattering across the region and province. And given that bed bugs are human parasites, they have conditioned themselves to adapt to any situation. The bugs are first attracted to humans through the emission of body heat and plumes of CO2 that come off the body, and because the bugs inject an anesthetic when they bite, most people will never know they’ve been bitten or have an infestation, until it’s too late. A full-grown bed bug is about the size of an apple seed and is reddish-brown in colour. “Their food source is strictly blood,” Johnston said. “They have a piercing, sucking mouth like a mosquito, but they don’t have a chewing mouth part.They cannot feed on anything else: just blood. And they really prefer humans.”

the most expensive piece of furniture in the room. Both advocate playing it a bit safer when it comes to the fabric and colour of the couch. Sticking with a neutral tone in a more durable fabric will give the piece a longer lifespan. “You want it to be long lasting,” Gallop says. “That makes more sense with the bigger piece.” It also makes the most sense to start with the couch when deciding the layout of furniture in the room. Hunter, who is also a home stager, recommends finding,

Adding a few smaller, unique elements to your living room can help change things up without breaking the bank.
hether you want to update your living space or start from scratch, make sure to have fun but don’t forget about function. When you’re looking to outfit a living or family room, it’s important to ask yourself a couple of questions: How is the room going to be used and how many people do you want to be able to accommodate? “A lot of it is determined by function,” says interior designer Sarah Gallop. People with kids and pets will want to choose furniture for its durability; those with a larger family or who entertain frequently will want to ensure there’s plenty of seating. “Think about how you live and how you’re going to use it,” Gallop says. There are a number of options that can pull double duty for those looking to maximize seating options. Benches or ottomans can serve as a table or a place to sit when entertaining a crowd. Both Gallop and redesigner Eleanor Hunter recommend starting with the largest piece of furniture when looking to change things up. In most cases that’s going to be the couch, which is also usually
or creating, a focal point in the room. That could be an architectural point, such as a fireplace or a window with a fabulous view, or one that you can create and move, such as a TV or a piece of art. The couch should be placed facing the focal point. From there, the other pieces—a loveseat, chairs or other seating elements—should be placed along diagonal lines throughout the room. “You want a zig-zag effect through your room,” Hunter says.“Have fun with it . . . don’t stay in a rut. Just try moving a couple things and that usually creates a domino effect.” She does, however, warn people away from putting a couch in front of a window as it tends to block natural light and is not the most aesthetically pleasing view from outside. For those on a tight budget, you don’t have to shy away from change. Sometimes even just moving the furniture around can make a big difference. Adding new accent pieces, such as chairs, throws or cushions, to an existing couch can also make a big difference. Gallop recommends considering re-upholstering an existing couch or chair if it has “good bones.”

10 herbs for windowsills
eople who dream of livening-up winter meals by adding a few fresh herbs can do just that by growing them in pots on windowsills in winter. Shadetolerant herbs like mint, chervil and parsley are the easiest to start with because they’ll accept even a north window. The Mediterranean herbs such as rosemary, oregano and thyme are fussier. For them, a south or west window can work well in early and late winter, especially if windows are kept sparkling clean outside and inside and the weather is unusually sunny. But in mid-winter as daylength shortens, sun-loving herbs and even those that prefer shade may look unwell, become long and spindly, then stop growing. This is a typical response of many indoor plants during late December and January. Growth resumes as daylength increases. Some gardeners continue snipping herbs until the plants are little stubs; others let them rest, and a few people put them under a fluorescent grow-light for a few weeks. Not everyone realizes rosemary makes a beautiful year-round houseplant, especially if you select a compact kind such as Blue Boy which
Green Thumb can reach 24 inches (60 cm) but usually doesn’t if there’s a cook in the house. Thyme and oregano can also grow for long periods indoors on a south windowsill. It’s useful to know that all the sun-loving herbs will grow one-sidedly unless they’re turned frequently. Sage could make a useful houseplant, but for most of us in southwest B.C. there’s not much point since the basic sage (Salvia officinalis) and also Berggarten Sage are winter-hardy. Mint has low light requirements but is very susceptible to drying out. It also needs to be kept well-nourished, moist and misted frequently. All the shade-tolerant herbs need moisture and misting to counteract the dry air and high temperatures inside homes. Vapourisers and standing the pots on pebbles above water-filled trays adds humidity to the air. A lidless saucepan of water on low heat could be a handy source
of humidity but is only truly safe for gardeners who would never go out and leave it. Gardeners with mint growing outside can easily dig up some roots and wash them clean of garden earth (which may contain slug eggs or other pests) and then repot them in houseplant potting mix that includes organic fertilizer, either liquid or granular. Chives do well with similar treatment. But here it’s best to have two pots going—one for the early winter while the other goes dormant outside. The pots can be switched in the week after Christmas. Suddenly the dormant chives feel warmth, moisture, naturally increasing light and decide spring must have arrived early. Their growth is usually prompt and sustained. Parsley is hardy outside through mild frosts, but by late December is usually sleeping. Since it has a taproot, transplanting will be successful only with very young plants. But gardeners who think ahead and grow windowsill parsley in pots from seed can enjoy parsley through the entire winter. ! Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions.

Try something other than pumpkin pie
traditional dessert at Thanksgiving is pumpkin pie, but there are so many other options that would feel just as seasonal. One of my favorites is cranberry bread pudding. Bread puddings usually utilize leftover stale bread, but I prefer to use a fresh loaf of French bread and toast it in the oven instead. The results are far superior. When it first comes from the oven it will be puffed up and beautiful, but don’t be alarmed to see it shrink down as it cools, this is normal. When it comes to serving, a premium vanilla bean ice cream is a wonderful addition. I hope it becomes a favorite with your family too. Cranberry Bread Pudding A combination of both fresh and dried cranberries makes for a flavourful and more complex cranberry taste. 1 454 g (one pound) French loaf 4 large eggs, beaten 1-1/4 cups sugar 1 tsp vanilla extract 1 tsp ground cinnamon
On Cooking 1/4 tsp salt Zest from two lemons, finely chopped 2 cups of 10 per cent cream (half and half) 2 cups milk (2 per cent or 3.5 per cent Homogenized) 3/4 cup sweetened dried cranberries 3/4 cup cranberries (fresh or frozen), halved Vanilla bean ice cream, optional Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Tear the French bread into approximate oneinch to two-inch chunks and spread evenly on a large baking sheet. Bake in the oven for 10 minutes, tossing the pieces around about halfway through. Remove from the oven and let sit while you prepare the rest of the pudding. Decrease the oven temperature to 350 degrees and prepare a nine-by-13 baking
dish by buttering it. In a large bowl, combine the eggs, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, salt, and the zest thoroughly. Whisk in the cream and milk. Add the toasted bread pieces and the dried cranberries and toss together thoroughly with your hands. Let sit for 10 minutes for the bread pieces to absorb. Put one-half of the custard-soaked bread mixture into the prepared baking dish and top with half of the fresh/frozen halved cranberries. Add the remaining bread mixture (and scrape all liquid from the bowl) to the dish and top with the remaining fresh/frozen halved cranberries. Bake for approximately one hour until the top browns and puffs up. Also, an inserted butter knife should come out clean. Let sit for at least 10 to 15 minutes before serving warm with vanilla bean ice cream. Makes 10 to 12 portions. ◗ Chef Dez is a food columnist, culinary instructor and cooking show performer.Visit him at www.chefdez.com.

Moms break local nursing record
Worldwide breastfeeding challenge in Chilliwack brings out 102 mothers for fifth in the world BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
re c o rd n u m b e r o f Chilliwack babies simultaneously latched on to their moms at Heritage Park last Saturday. The 102 mothers breastfeeding their babies at 11 a.m. on Oct. 2 were part of the annual worldwide Breastfeeding Challenge. Organizers hoped for more than 100 moms and the successful tally eclipsed the 69 moms from 2009. As of press time, Chilliwack’s 102 moms placed them fifth in the world. Amersfoort, Netherlands, topped the list with 158 moms, Ottawa and Toronto tied for 141 and Mahon, Ireland, had 106. The Quintessence Breastfeeding Challenge began in 2001 in British Columbia with 856 children at 26 sites and was designed as a friendly challenge to see which location could get the most moms together to breastfeed
as a group. In 2009 there were 4,766 children at 246 sites in 21 countries. This event takes place as part of the celebration of World Breastfeeding Week in Canada, which ran Oct. 1 to 7. Theprovincialgovernment promoted World Breastfeeding Week as Minister of Healthy Living and Sport Ida Chong spoke of the benefits of breastfeeding in a recent press release. “Breastfeeding is vital for infant growth and development, and has a positive impact on the health of both the infant and the mother,” said Chong. “While there are no quick solutions to the obesity epidemic we face as a nation, there is considerable evidence to suggest that breastfeeding is among the most effective preventive measures for reducing the risk of childhood health issues like obesity. It also reduces the risk of severe lower respiratory tract infec-

British Columbia has the highest rate of breastfeeding initiation in the country at 97 per cent. However, only 19 per cent of mothers continue exclusive breastfeeding for the first six months.

hen Sue Schellenberg first put her hands on a piece of clay, she knew it was love at first touch. The journey from that moment on has meant living her dream as a professional potter, opening Schellenberg Pottery, instructing for the Chilliwack Community Arts Council, and now, overseeing the new Chilliwack Cultural Centre’s clay studio. Life seems to have come “full circle” as Schellenberg initially pursued her interest in ceramics by taking classes from local potter Vijaya Morrison, under whose guidance and influence she flourished and quickly became passionate for the one of the oldest art forms on Earth. Schellenberg’s business specializes in functional ware, such as dishwasher-safe bowls, plates, mugs, and more. She prides herself on being a sustainable retailer by creating her own glazes to avoid detrimental substances like lead. When asked where one could find Schellenberg most days, she replies “my studio,” which highlights the current demand for quality ceramics. This is not just a local experience either, with the American Hobby Industry Association stating that the craft industry grew by almost $10 million between 2000 and 2004 and in 2008 was a $31 billion industry. With staggering statistics and the opening of a world-class cultural centre, Schellenberg can barely contain her excitement.
Sue Schellenberg is excited about the new clay studio at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre and the classes on offer this fall. “Chilliwack has needed a clay studio for so long,” she said. “This will be a place for ceramic artists to congregate, learn from one another and introduce the art form to more in our community. I am thrilled to work in a studio equipped with the best wheels and tools, and to be in a centre that I’m sure is the best in the province.” Rod Hudson, executive director of the Chilliwack Community Arts Council, said, “After working with Sue at the arts centre for many years we are pleased that we can provide a state-of-the-art clay stu-
dio from which she can pass on her enthusiasm and skills to deserving students of all levels.” The Chilliwack Cultural Centre’s clay studio opened in October and is equipped with 10 electric potter wheels, a damp room, dry room, glazing/kiln room, and exterior double doors for crates of clay to be easily transported into the studio. Classes will be offered for both children and adults with various levels presented. For children aged seven to 12, hand-building will be taught in-depth, covering the use of grog, attaching clay pieces, the
coil method, building with slabs, as well as glazing and firing. Wheel throwing classes are full and have already begun but there are a number of other classes still available. Students for all classes can expect to complete their course with four to 10 pieces of their own. “Pottery is a fantastic escape from one’s busy life—it is a chance to be someone else, someone creative, to put your hands in clay and forget about everything else in your life. I find it so relaxing,” says Schellenberg.

• Hand Building 1 - Wednesdays, Oct. 20 to Nov. 24 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. (six weeks) adult class • Kids Ceramics - Wednesdays Oct. 6 to 27 4:30 to 6 p.m. (four weeks) • Santa’s Workshops - Oct. 16, 20, 30, Nov. 13, 17, 27 10 a.m. to noon or noon to 1 p.m.

hat could be better than a fairy tale told in song? Vancouver Opera’s star performers bring the classic fairy tale, Cinderella, to the main theatre stage at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre for two children’s matinees Sunday, Oct. 17 at 2 and 4 pm. Presented by the Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Centre Society, Cinderella, is perfect for young audiences, full of lively tunes, fastpaced fun, comical characters and a few added surprises. Attend this enchanting English adaptation of Rossini’s brilliant opera and witness highly embellished costumes, dazzling operatic singing and enjoyable twists to the classic fairy-tale. Twists include a mean stepfather, Don Magnifico, unlike Disney’s wicked stepmother, and the Fairy Godmother being a philosopher named Alidoro, who happens to be the Prince’s tutor. “Rossini created a Cinderella who was very much in charge of her own destiny,” says stage director Rachel Peake. “Rather than accidentally dropping a shoe as she runs away, our Cinderella chooses to leave a bracelet behind

The power of tango B
allet Victoria continues to distinguish itself as a world-class dance company, programming highly unique pieces that bring audiences to their feet after every performance. Chilliwack’s new Cultural Centre will host Ballet Victoria’s latest presentation, Twilight Tango, premiering for the first time on the main stage on Oct. 16. Start counting down the days to when you come face-to-face with the world of vampires. Ballet Victoria opens the show with Midnight Song, a new ballet by Bruce Monk, and leads into Amsterdam, c ho re og ra p h ed by Pau l Destrooper and Sandrine Cassini, bringing the entire company on stage to portray the flat land of Belgium and its people, touching on universal themes. “It is very much a mood ballet with currents and tides like the seas,” comments Destrooper. Twilight Tango comprises the second half of the pro-
gram, celebrating the mysteries of the supernatural and setting frozen hearts ablaze. Performers portray the underground night life of vampires, set to the world’s most powerful genre of music: tango. “I love tango,” Destrooper gushes, “the rhythms are sensual and dark, which made for an easy transition to a vampire tale.” The performer’s movement is based on classical ballet technique (En pointe) with a very contemporary quality and approach. Emotions are expressed through incredibly physical and athletic choreography. Ballet Victoria’s performers are breath-taking and not to be missed. Immerse yourself emotionally and experience classical masterpieces as well as new, innovative work, hailed by first-rate reviews. !

LIONS NEWS October is a month for being thankful. We at the Chilliwack Lions Club are thankful, not only to all of our members who volunteer at our Music & Dance Festival, ﬁxing appliances, picking up used eyeglasses, recycling, or working at our ﬂea market; all giving back to the community with their time and talents. We are also more than thankful to all of you Chilliwack residents who come out and support the many talented youth at our Music & Dance Festival and donate goods to our Flea Market on Yale Road – special thanks to our corporate donors: Chilliwack Carpet One and Décor West Interiors; and those of you who come in and buy our used items! ** This past month we are pleased to have been able to help the Spina Biﬁda Run with $250; Chilliwack Baptist Church with $200; Samaritan’s Purse (water ﬁlters) with $200; Chilliwack Opportunity Society with $500; Pakistan Relief (through our Lions Club International Disaster Relief Fund) with $500; and Chilliwack Mood Disorder Association with $500.** We are fortunate and blessed to have health, home, family and friends which make our lives so full and rich. It gives us pleasure and satisfaction if we can share our good fortune with others and use our time and energies giving back to those less fortunate. Look for ways you can give back. . If you want to be part of a team that works to help others, give us a call.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Home, family, security are still of prime importance. And romance, creativity, charming kids, pleasure, beauty, speculative risks still run a close second. A “prodigal child” might return in the next three months. Sunday morning, mid-day are romantic, in a friendly but sexy way. Tackle chores this eve to Tuesday. You’ll get a lot done – but watch safety Tuesday eve. Relationships erect barriers Wednesday/Thursday, so be diplomatic. It’s nothing major. Sexual urges, ﬁnancial inspirations/hunches, life’s depths and mysteries arise Friday/Saturday. Invest passively, pay debts. Research! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: What’s slow is difﬁcult; what’s quick is easy. In the house, with family, be ﬂexible, long-suffering, affectionate. Outside the house, follow your curiosity – it can lead you to valuable information, even to new friends. (Now to next March, you might make a friend who is surrounded by, or has an element of, mystery. This person can offer nuggets of little-known information, but don’t follow his/her advice about money or business.) Rest early Sunday. This eve to Tuesday brings romantic urges — and insights. Tackle chores midweek. Exciting meetings, fresh horizons Friday onward! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Chase money. Buy/sell, seek new clients, ask for a pay raise or extra hours (especially Friday/Saturday). Generally this is an easy, sensual week. Sunday morning’s very friendly. Both opportunity and opposition occur Monday/Tuesday – say yes to real estate, security, home, no to health or work themes. Romance, pleasure, sports, creative projects and charming kids ﬁll Wednesday/ Thursday – nighttimes best, mid-afternoons worst. Tackle chores Friday onward. A former opportunity returns to you now to mid-November. Be ready to “work it” December/January. Might involve property, relocation.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reﬂections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent continues on relationships – and opportunities. Last summer’s taste of luck and freedom will return as a full meal the ﬁrst ﬁve months of 2011. But until then you have a number of duties – at least two major ones – to clear up. These are not mere “chores” – they entail an obligation, a social or sacred trust. They likely involve a legal, love or international affair, or a religious, intellectual, educational or publishing matter. Clues, reminders come Sunday to Tuesday. Be ambitious, reliable midweek, but don’t seek agreement. Social delights, love, happiness Friday/Saturday! Taurus April 20-May 20: Two weeks remain of drudgery and health concerns. Soon you’ll be free to give your full attention to the social and romantic hints you’ve been picking up, and the opportunity of these will last until then. Meanwhile, knuckle down to work. Sunday’s social and intriguing – perhaps with someone ”higher up.” But this eve and Monday/ Tuesday bring heavier themes: sex, intimacy, privacy, research, ﬁnances, commitment. (Don’t feel you have to commit, though.) Understanding, a mellow mood enters midweek. Be ambitious Friday/Saturday: prospects look good for a new project. Gemini May 21-June 20: The emphasis remains on romance, creativity, risk and reward, pleasure, beauty and charming kids. This isn’t the easiest week, but there are no major obstacles, either. Tackle chores Sunday a.m. – clear the decks for some evening explorations, bids or opportunities. Partnerships and marriage haven’t been easy since 2003, and won’t be this autumn/winter – nor Tuesday p.m. But next March starts eight years of peace, harmony, friendliness and interest in relationships. Loneliness will ﬂee! Be patient, ﬂexible until then. Depths, mystery, sexual and ﬁnancial attractions mid-week.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness remain high. Start important projects, insist on your way, ask favours, and make personal appearances. Shop Sunday morning (especially for high-tech). This afternoon through Tuesday brings paperwork, communications, errands, casual acquaintances – busyness. Your home life, your security, and real estate, become important midweek. It’s a splendid time to institute your own schedules, priorities, to end some situations and lay the groundwork for the new. Romance visits Friday/ Saturday. Before 2011, new romance is not the “marrying kind.” Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Continue to take a restful, contemplative approach. Your energy levels are low. Still, there’s a lot of important work to be done, so do it. Important because either a) you’re the only one who can do it; or b) it promises to “almost directly” advance your own goals. Someone might be “sweet” on you – be kind, but gently evasive. Chase money, buy/sell, Sunday eve to Tuesday. Communicate – but carefully – Wednesday/Thursday. Drive carefully, too. Be alert, because events are faster now than you are. Retreat to home ground for some deep, rejuvenating rest Friday/Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The accent lies on wish fulﬁlment, popularity, entertainment, social delights and group efforts. Visualize your future, make optimistic plans. You might be experiencing a clandestine attraction – this has little beneﬁcial impact, and could hinder future love, which would be a shame, as the ﬁrst half of 2011 holds the promise of splendid romantic beginnings! (If you’re married, 2011 will bring creative and similar successes.) Sleep in Sunday morning. This p.m. (through Thursday) your energy soars – tackle big things, enjoy the attention! Buy/sell midweek. Errands, Friday/Saturday.

Oct. 10 - Oct. 16 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Be ambitious. Think about future paths, possibilities Sunday morning. Then spend this p.m. through Tuesday evening in rest, planning, research, preparation and dealings with “permission agencies” (government, institutions, “head ofﬁce”). (Attend to health issues, also.) Charge forth Wednesday/Thursday – ask favours, ask to see important people, make presentations, initiate projects. You’ll succeed! Money’s the subject (and object) Friday/Saturday. All month, your hopes are tied up with love and work. A co-worker romance might be growing more serious. There’s no harm in this! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A sweet, mellow, easy week, with a focus on intellectual interests, far travel, education, publishing, culture and love. (These slow mildly to late 2012.) Perform a money chore Sunday morning. Your optimism and popularity surge this eve to Tuesday. Accept and issue invitations, envision the future and sign on for entertainment. A wish might come true (perhaps not a romantic one). Rest, retreat Wednesday/Thursday. Plan and contemplate, think about your shifting spiritual and charity beliefs. Your energy and charisma return strongly Friday/Saturday. Romance is a deﬁnite maybe. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The accent lies on mystery, depths, lust, big ﬁnances, subconscious urges, lifestyle changes, deep health factors, commitment and consequence. These deep currents are overlaid with a romantic, loving, and “intellectually beautiful” atmosphere. It could be the right time to say “Yes” to someone or something! (Though, frankly, there’s no rush – next week’s good also, as is most of the rest of 2010.) Be ambitious Sunday eve to Tuesday. Wishes can come true Wednesday/Thursday, though it’s more likely you’ll simply experience optimism and quiet social joys. Retreat, rest Friday/Saturday. email@example.com • Reading: 416-686-5014
