The driver of a pickup truck was taken to hospital with serious injuries after colliding with a train.

Truck collides with train BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

Driver seriously injured in bizarre accident

Chilliwack man was sent to hospital with serious injuries after his truck collided with a train Tuesday night just before midnight. Police say four vehicles were waiting for a train to pass at the Knight Road crossing when the accident occurred. The 33-yearold man’s truck struck the back of the fourth vehicle in line, passed the remaining stopped vehicles and drove toward the train tracks, where it collided with the train.

The male driver, who was the vehicle’s lone occupant, was been taken to an unidentified Lower Mainland hospital for treatment of his injuries. That’s as much as police know. After the track cleared and fire and rescue crews arrived on the scene, the three undamaged vehicles left. Mounties had not yet arrived at the accident and are now hoping to speak to the occupants of those vehicles to get a sense of how exactly the truck ended up hitting a train.

A

“They’re our best witnesses,” said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. LeaAnne Dunlop. “They were the closest to the collision.” The drivers did not fail in their legal duty to remain at the scene of the accident, said Dunlop. Police don’t know exactly how fast the train was moving when the collision occurred or what the intentions of the driver were. But they’re reminding the public that train crossings can be dangerous places if the rules of the road

are not followed. “The police wish to remind the public of the danger involved in trying to beat a train that is approaching a crossing,” said Dunlop. “A few moments to stop and wait and ensure your personal safety, the safety of those on the train, and that of those on the roadway with you is a all that is needed to avoid a very dangerous situation.” The cause of the accident is still under investigation by the Chilliwack RCMP.

tudents at Chilliwack senior secondary have reconnected with their journalistic past— 21st century style. Three months into their new Journalism 12 class, students have launched the school’s first student newspaper since the early 1990s, and it’s all digital. Called The Storm, the online newspaper is a School District No. 33 first and features news, arts, entertainment, sports, opinion and CSS happenings all written up by students. “I always thought it was important for a school to have a newspaper,” said Jeff Dartnell, who teaches the course. “It gives the kids a voice. Lots of people don’t think kids have anything to say, but as you can see from the articles some of kids have really important things to say.” Dartnell successfully pitched the

No need for print product as CSS student newspaper returns in digital form only idea for Journalism 12 to the school board in the spring. He was motivated in part by his dad, a CSS grad who often reminisced about the school’s old student rag, The Tatler. Named after the 18th century English newspaper published by Joseph Addison and Richard Steele, it started back in 1922 as about 10 handwritten pages of foolscap held together with brass paper fasteners. Until it died in 1992, The Tatler went through numerous transformations, including everything from mimeographed editions with silk-screen cover art to slick professional publications that sold for five cents a copy. And there is greatness among the paper’s alumni as well.

Columnist Allan Fotheringham, one of the most distinctive voices in Canadian journalism and a CSS grad, worked on it in the late 1940s. “I am very proud that my very first attempt at journalism was my beloved Chilliwack High School paper,” said Fotheringham in an email to the Times. “[It] started off a career that took me to work at Fleet Street in London, in Ottawa, in Washington . . . and all because of the boost that I got from Chilliwack.” While the online format of The Storm is a big change, some challenges —like a wide range of writing ability among reporters—have stayed very much the same since 1922, according to Dartnell.

“It’s a work in progress with some kids,” he said. While some teachers at the school nostalgically favoured a print paper, Dartnell went digital with The Storm to keep costs down and make it student friendly. “So many kids are connected with iPods now and a lot of them have iPads,” he said. “They have access to this stuff right away.” The site uses software from School Newspapers Online, an American company that specializes in helping high school newspapers get onto the Internet. “I still e-mail the guy on a daily basis, but I’m pretty good at it now,” said Dartnell, who spent See CSS PAPER, Page 7

Conflict gravel

Resident input needed to halt clashes over aggregate mines BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

C

ritics of gravel mining in the Fraser Valley gathered in Yarrow Wednesday evening to present an alternative plan for the industry— an industry that is increasingly coming into conflict with residents. Approximately 80 people attended the meeting hosted by the ChilliwackFraser Canyon NDP at which the socalled Aggregate Supply Plan (ASP) was presented by Walter Neufeld, an Abbotsford developer who has been a fierce critic of the provincial government’s approach to gravel mining for years. The ASP is put forth as an alternative to the provincial government’s Aggregate Pilot Project (APP), which was initiated by the Minister of State for Mines in 2004 in response to “intense conflicts surrounding aggregate operations” in the region. Critics say the APP does absolutely nothing to resolve conflicts and “represents gravel mining interests only.” Local opposition comes from the

Chilliwack River Valley where a gravel mine application from Southview Sorting was recently approved. But further concern comes from Yarrow residents worried about a Kirkness Pacific Holdings proposal to build a conveyor belt to bring gravel down the front of Vedder Mountain. Glen Thompson, spokesperson for the Friends of the Chilliwack RiverValley, claims the APP does not resolve conflicts as government claims it will. “That is not conflict resolution, that is sweeping it under the rug,” he said at the meeting. “The government should see the future. They can’t sustain this crazy way of doing business.” Thompson has called on local governments to boycott “conflict gravel,” which he defines as gravel extracted from operations that conflict with local residents. “We’re asking that these elected officials stop the purchase of gravel from pits located in communities where local residents are opposed to these operations,” he said. The alternative ASP aims to ease conflicts between industry and residents and would shut down operations where those conflicts currently exist. “What’s happening now is obscene and I think we are all aware of the obscenity,” Neufeld said. But the topic brought up again and again at Wednesday’s meeting—from the harshest critics of gravel mines to a member of the gravel mining indus-

They were critical of a gravel pit that apparently operates without a permit and outside of hours allowed under bylaws. Fleming agreed with the issue surrounding enforcement of existing laws and guidelines. He said government capacity for enforcement has been gutted by the governing Liberals. “The Ministry of the Environment

has 30 per cent less staff than in 2008,” he said. “We do not have boots on the ground in the province of B.C. to help the government fulfill its statutory obligations.” Electoral Area D director Dave Lamson responded to some of the concerns about the APP, but did concede the plan has flaws and suggested the best of the ASP and of the APP could be merged together. He also suggested the boycott of so-called “conflict gravel” was a good idea. Thompson said Lamson’s comments came as a surprise and he viewed them as “an olive branch” to those opposed to the APP. Neufeld and Thompson plan to present the ASP to FVRD Friday. On Thursday, Thompson announced a “direct action” on Dec. 3 has been suspended.

At a recent appointment he was told he will likely have to spend another year on the wait list, forcing him to put his life and college plans “on hold.” But after media coverage last week, Donovan got some good news. The Shriners have offered to pay for the Chilliwack teen’s surgery at a Shriners Hospital in Oregon, as well as travel, hotel and meal expenses, all without a wait list, Donovan’s mom, Amy Niiranen, said Wednesday. The family, currently in the process of filling out the necessary application and forms, don’t have a surgery date yet, but Niiranen has been told it will take less time than remaining in Canada. - The Province

FOI smokes out transit report BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

Douglas Renz

Still seeking missing man

C

hilliwack police are again calling for the public’s help in locating a man not seen since February. Douglas Scott Renz, 50, was reported missing back in April and has not yet been found. Police say there “is some indication” that Renz may have left the Chilliwack area. But accounts differ among his friends and acquaintances. “Everyone has their own theory on where he may have gone, some of which include leaving the area,” said Cpl. Lea-Anne Dunlop. Renz had been living “a transient lifestyle primarily in the Chilliwack and Yarrow area,” according to police. He is white, five-foot-10 and about 150 pounds with brown hair and green eyes. He had short hair and was balding when last seen.

long-awaited government report on regional transit in the Fraser Valley will be released within the next two months. For several months, local municipalities, including Chilliwack, along with the Fraser Valley Regional District have been demanding the government release the report. While transpor tation ministr y spokespeople have promised the report is on its way, so far nothing has been released. The final report was originally scheduled to be completed in February. Now a government website states:

PENNER, from page 1 Vancouver-Langara MLA Moira Stilwell in the race. As with Stilwell, de Jong had no fellow MLAs by his side when he made his announcement. Abbott and Falcon each had 10 caucus members standing in support. Chilliwack MLA John Les was with Falcon in Coverdale Tuesday as he announced his candidacy. Some pundits have suggested Falcon is the further right-leaning of the candidates so far, and the most like Campbell, something Les disputes. “Believe me, they are not clones,” Les told the Times. “They are two distinctly different people and Kevin will be noticeably different from Gordon Camp-

Diane Janzen, who chairs the city’s transportation committee, said the study is crucial to how Chilliwack approaches regional transit planning. “We really need [that information] to do some good transit planning,” she said. “There are a lot of people waiting to see what the results of that study have been.”

“A final report is expected in the Fall of 2010.” In October, the Times submitted a request under the Freedom of Information Act for the most recent version of the report. On Tuesday, the Times received notice that its request had been denied because “Disclosure is excepted under section 20 of the Act for information that will be published or released with-

They are two completely different people with two different styles.” With the suggestion that Falcon was likely the early frontrunner, Les said that was certainly possible. “Certainly Kevin and Christy [Clark, who has not declared she will run] and George and Mike are all formidable people in their own right. And apparently there is some expectation that [Maple Ridge-Mission MLA] Marc Dalton will run. Moira Stilwell is a lower profile candidate but a very interesting person.” Les said that Stilwell might actually be a second choice for a lot of people,

“which could make things interesting in a transferable ballot voting system.” And while Penner will remain neutral because he will sit a committee to oversee the leadership race, the jokes about his cat haven’t died down. “The cat seems to be out of the bag about Ranger’s ambitions,” Penner wrote in an e-mail to Vancouver Sun reporter Jonathan Fowlie. Even Abbott entered the fray on Ranger. “I had hoped to be the cuddliest of the candidates that were in the competition for leadership. Clearly Ranger’s come in from the cold; he’s looking very good,” he said.

Pubs hope Red Nose puts them in the black BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

F

or Friendly Mike’s Pub general manager JohnToussaint, Operation Red Nose is a chance to salvage what has been a dismal end to 2010. For the Chilliwack RCMP, it means that drivers have one less excuse to use when busted with too much alcohol in their system. “With having the option of a free ride home in your community, there’s really no excuse for anybody,” said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. LeaAnne Dunlop. “Whether you’re going to use a designated driver, call a cab, take transit or, as in the case

of Friday or Saturday nights now in December, get a free ride home in your own car.” Last weekend, during the first two days of Operation Red Nose, the service was used 120 times. Toussaint hopes the free service will at least temporarily lure customers who have been scared away by the new .05 drinking and driving laws. Friendly Mike’s has signed up as a corporate sponsor for the volunteer-driven program. “I think this is where everybody’s going to go,” he told the Times. “The first week after Red Nose we had a lot of hits, a lot. We didn’t keep track of what the numbers were but a lot of people used that service so it’s

“They either don’t drink or they limit their drinks to one drink, maybe two at most if they’re here for a longer period of time.”

John Toussaint very handy.” Having a lot of folks in the pub is a refreshing change for local pub owners. Toussaint said business at Friendly Mike’s has dropped as much as 40 per cent. “They either don’t drink or they

limit their drinks to one drink, maybe two at most if they’re here for a longer period of time,” he said. “A lot of people have said, ‘But that means your beer store is busier, right?’ No,” said Toussaint. “It’s lost sales. And that’s what I think is concerning the government.They’ve lost the sales out of pubs and restaurants and they haven’t gained it anywhere. It’s just evaporated.” Toussaint said that while the intention of the new laws may have been noble, it targets those having a drink or two with dinner, not problem drinkers, who he says are the real problem. The result is that fewer people are drinking alcohol, the sale of which has traditionally formed the

backbone of restaurant and pubs’ revenue stream. Now Toussaint said he and other beleaguered restaurants may end up having to raise food prices just to keep the lights on and the doors open. “Red Nose is a good thing for the season. The rest of the year people have to be responsible themselves.” But what about cab companies? Surely they’re doing a roaring business, right? “When this law came into effect we thought it would affect our business in a good way,” Chilliwack Taxi general manager Paul Johal told the See RED NOSE, Page 18

Despite the return of the last of seven animals stolen earlier this month, 35 goats stolen from Chilliwack farms remain missing.

Tanya back home, but 35 other goats still missing The last of Tyla Elgersma’s stolen goats is home. “We’re absolutely thrilled,” she told the Times. “It’s amazing.” Two weeks ago, thieves made off with seven of her family’s cherished goats from a Fairfield Island property where they were being kept. The theft was just the most recent in a series of incidents in which Fraser Valley goats have been stolen. With goat meat in high demand, the Elgersmas put out a desperate plea for their animals but had little hope that they would be returned. On Nov. 18, six of the goats were returned. But Tanya, a registered alpine goat and the most valuable animal of the septet, was still missing and presumed eaten. “ We’re surprised.

He then sold six of them to the Langley farmer who returned those animals on Nov. 18. He kept Tanya, meanwhile, and apparently cared for her well. “They must have taken really good care of her,” said Elgersma. “She looks great.” Elgersma said the people who had Tanya didn’t contact her right away because apparently “ They didn’t want to get involved in the whole mess of things.” Elgersma is delighted to have her goats back, but she noted that many Chilliwack goats are still missing. “There are still 35 goats that are missing,” she said. “We’re thankful that we have a happy ending, but we certainly want more for the other people too.”

Nissan’s Juke is a compact sport crossover designed for young urbanites. TBWA/ Toronto has recently created a series of three online ads in which the Juke becomes a super-hero who destroys a mechanized monster, dumps the infected core of a sci-fi weather machine into a lava pit, and chases a pair of motorcyclists by leaping between buildings. Obviously ‘fake’, these ads contain many sequences in which, some might say, the driving behaviours are off the charts noncompliant with road safety laws. By limiting the ads to online distribution the hope is that the campaign won’t breach the new guidelines. Of course, the target market is more likely to be online than watching television.

Although such complexity delivers layers of ‘messaging’ whether applying the loophole so creatively effectively undercuts the illegality of the driving behaviours remains open to question. The popular ‘Light the Night’ TV ad for Nissan’s Juke, however, unquestionably complies with the spirit of road safety laws while also applying the loophole. A Juke drives through Berlin at night energizing the city as it goes. A young man on a city bench awakes; battery-powered toys in a toy store become animated; washing machines in an empty laundromat overfill and spill out; a jewelry store thief is suddenly illuminated in the act; a rat climbs aboard an empty sky train for a spin through the city; and office towers and billboards light up as the Juke pulls into a parking spot. People come together as they come out to watch. The car and the city interact with each other and all is well.

THE ROAD RULES

The guidelines, which are embedded in eight questions, ask whether depictions of, for example, ‘performance, power or acceleration’ or ‘handling ability’ convey the impression that illegal driving behaviours are being condoned or encouraged. But they also ask whether the depictions appear “realistic or [whether they appear] to be unreal, as in a fantasy-like scenario ... unlikely to be copied or emulated in real life”- a question that begs an ‘unsafe-butfake’ loophole that has inspired a number of highly creative car advertisements.

A WRX equipped with a side-mounted camera drove alongside the fence at the velocity required to capture 24 frames per second. The ad shows the set-up and then zeros into the animation, which shows driving behaviours that, again, may break all the rules.

Peasant uprising made its mark I

n London this month, the peasants have been revolting. Well, actually, its students have been protesting the doubling or tripling of their university tuition. They’ve been using such timehonoured tactics as occupying buildings, chanting, and in a few cases throwing rocks. Meanwhile, we’ve got ourselves a more genteel tax revolt going on in this province. So why are the peasants (or middle classes) revolting? Well, we’re all following the script laid down more than 600 years ago by the first big revolt against the English crown. The Peasant Revolt of 1381 was the first time that poor English people flipped the bird at the nobility. The roots of the conflict went back decades. In 1349, the Black Plague came to England and killed off about a third of the population. In a generation, this terrible tragedy had actually turned out to be pretty good for the peasants. Suddenly there was a huge demand for more labour. There was more land free, so you could graze more animals and get more protein in your diet (a big concern if your daily fare was gruel, served three ways). The government responded with the subtlety and sophistication you would expect from an inbred hereditary dictatorship. The kings of England tried to cap wages for peasants and worked hard to keep

Be Our Guest them tied to land. Then there were these rogue priests who were going around asking tough questions like: “If we’re all descended from Adam and Eve, why is that guy a lord and the rest of us are all reduced to living on giant dungheaps?” (These attitudes led to the upper classes getting huffy. If there had been newspapers, they would have been full of letters from Lord Twitenham about how people used to know their place when he was a lad, back before that nastiness about the plague.) The war continued, and to finance it, three poll taxes were decreed in four years. So the peasants, whose wages had been frozen for decades, were suddenly being taxed almost to the point of starvation. They snapped. A gaggle of rebels emerged in Essex and Kent, leading contingents of men to London. They started by kicking the crap out of lawyers and any lords who stood in their way. Then they found, among others, the Lord Chancellor, the

Lord of the Treasury (a.k.a. the finance ministers), and the Archbishop of Canterbury, and cut off their heads. Yeah, back then “tax revolt” wasn’t just a saying. The teenaged king played along and said he’d give in to all their demands (You don’t want to be serfs anymore? Sure!) right up until he had enough men to surround the rebels. The ringleaders were killed. Wat Tyler, John Ball and other rebel leaders left their mark in English political history. Their legacy stretches down through the centuries, to the English Civil War, and to the rebellion in 1837 of William Lyon MacKenzie in Upper Canada. Almost every country in the world has dealt with rebellions that bubble up from below. They’re the subtext of every major strike and protest in the modern world. The current record for rebellions is about a dozen wins, 2,947 losses. But even a loss can be messy for the winning side. Wat Tyler was stabbed to death and his head hoisted on a pike. But that didn’t help the late Archbishop of Canterbury. Wat Tyler is the spiritual ancestor of rebels both calm and violent, from prim petitioners to black-clad anarchists smashing storefront windows. ◗ Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the Langley Advance.

ormer judge Ted Hughes came out this week calling for Premier Gordon Campbell to repair a major rift between the government and the department that’s supposed to protect B.C.’s children. It’s a call that will probably be lost in the never-ending political battles in this province. And that’s a tragedy. Hughes’s 2006 review of the child welfare system led to the creation of the watchdog’s office. The Hughes Review was launched in 2005 amid controversy surrounding the death of 19-month-old Sherry Charlie in Port Alberni in 2002 and the bungled government investigation that followed. Fast forward to 2010, and the Representative for Children and Youth, Mary Ellen Turpel-Lafond, has just said that Campbell’s government has completed less than half of the 62 recommendations in the 2006 report. The government contends that is not accurate—in fact, it says that work is underway on most of them. But Hughes agrees that things just aren’t moving fast enough. There are lots of excuses given: staff changeovers, bureaucratic systems that are rigid, front-line staff who are confused about their roles. As well, we suspect, people are just overworked and the department understaffed. But whether the problems are in political leadership, or a lack thereof, pushback in bureaucracy, staff changeover or a failure to simply follow through—there is simply no adequate excuse for failing to complete this project. Children depend upon us and the government for protection. They don’t get to vote out the government that has failed them. It’s time to fix this.

Why can’t we be as tough as Kent?

Editor: I feel the need to write in about your story of Kent leading the way with fines for illegal grow-ops and making the grow-op operators/homeowners pay for the police and fire costs— Bravo! Then I read the comments by our mayor Sharon Gaetz, and I quote: “I can’t speak for other communities, but the philosophy we follow is that through the offence act, the community charter and the bylaw notice enforcement act, the legal system of B.C. provides for specific penalties for breaching any enactment. These are the tools that are available to us for punishing a person who breaches one of our bylaws and we use them to the fullest practical extent we can. “Anything else that we would charge an offender for would have to constitute a service. This would include permits, inspections and, if the offender was not cooperative, cleanup costs.” She said “there would be no circumstances where the offender would be paying for [police officers’ and firefighters’] time.” Question to the mayor: Do you actually read what you say or listen to how it sounds? The philosophy? I get taxed to death enough, along with paying for the police and fire departments to do their job and don’t like seeing my tax dollar squandered away because our polititions don’t have the initiative or guts to get tough on offenders. If a small community like Kent can get tough, why can’t we? Start taking these offenders seriously and charge them accordingly. If they can’t pay the fines then take their property and auction it off. If Kent can skirt the issue so to speak, then Chilliwack can too. Make the grow-op operators/homeowners pay for this crap. If you don’t have tougher bylaws in place, then put them in place. I, for one, will support you in a flash if you can actually do something to reduce the debt of the taxes incurred by the average law-abiding citizen and crack down on the law breakers. Why more people aren’t saying, “I’m as mad as hell

I hope in the next election somebody steps up to the plate and tells the people of Chilliwack that they are coming down hard on the law breakers in our community and are going to put the bylaws in place to do it. The penalties and fines in place are a bad joke right now and something has to change from both the municipal side and federal. Please tell me and the rest of Chilliwack why we can’t come down harder with tougher bylaws and make a difference. Darryl Saundry Chilliwack

Natives good to paleface fishers Editor: To the good people at Seabird Island: I would like to thank the people of Seabird Island and as well one of their band members, a native fellow named Bryson Peters, for showing us such kindness during this past summer’s fantastic sockeye run. We all know how the Fraser River can get to be when the fish are “on” and that is shoulder-to-shoulder people and nowhere to fish quietly and privately. A few of us fishermen met Bryson early on in the sockeye season on the river and over a period of a few days we all got to know each other and became friends. This was the very first time Bryson had fished the river with a rod in his hands and he was brand new to this sport and style of fishing. Bryson and the Seabird Band were kind enough to let us go onto their private

property where we could drive right to the river’s edge with our trucks and catch our daily limits. It was really a wonderful time. Then of course, “other” people found out about the “secret spot” and came in and started to ruin it by leaving their garbage laying around. We would clean it up when we saw what the “others” had done. Then, of course, there was the day when a native boat went by doing their drift and apparently some fellow that figured he had more rights to the river than the natives did, yet he was standing on native land fishing, decided to throw rocks and yell obscenities at a driftboat which was only a few feet away from shore with a native family in it, just doing what the natives do during fishing season—drifting. When I was told about this incident, as our group wasn’t there the day that it happened, I apologized to Bryson and asked him to relay that to the Seabird band office, on behalf of the rest of us “real sports fishermen” and told him that the guy that did that was very lucky “our group” wasn’t there to see, as that fellow would have probably gotten a “spanking” for being so disrespectful and ignorant. Of course, shortly thereafter, the area was closed off and no one was allowed in from the general public. But Bryson, being the great guy he is, and one of the head guys from the band office, made it possible that our “original group” of fishermen were still allowed in when Bryson was there with us. Now we had the entire stretch of beach to ourselves for the rest of the season with no “idiots” and had

many, many laughs watching each other wrestle in the fish. We had beach barbecues, brought our wives, kids and dogs, even when it rained we backed all the trucks up in a tight semicircle and tarped huge areas off to stay dry. Yup, natives and palefaces mixed, having a great time. Now it’s coming up to steelhead season, and guess what, Bryson has never caught one. Our group of guys have all stayed in touch, and now Bryson and his friends are coming with us so we can show them the secret spots on the Vedder River and be there when he nails his first steelhead. If any of you troubled sports fishermen are reading this, show respect. Clean up your garbage. Share the river. Clean up your language. Don’t throw rocks. I’ve never had a problem with any native person while fishing and I have found them to always be nice. But I’ve had my share of idiots that have the same colour skin as me. The rivers were here long before all of us, and it should be shared and respected. Make a friend with your native neighbours and not an enemy. If you can’t abide by those rules then stay home, none of us need you out there, you are an embarrassment to the “real” sports fishermen and we will no longer tolerate it. In the Halq’eméylem language of the Seabird Band, I would like to say this: Kw’ashoy Siyá:ye! Kw’etslóme! (Thank you friends! See you again!) I write this on behalf of our group of paleface sports fisherman Clint Guirr Chilliwack

Risky move appreciated Editor: My husband and I were so impressed with the stand the school board trustees are making renaming “Winter Break” to “Christmas Holiday Break.” I think this risky move by the school board shows that Christmas is a special time shared by many. I think it is politically uncorrect to

not call Christmas, Christmas for the people who do believe in this sacred time. Merry Christmas, Carolyn Nickel Chilliwack

We do not change the name for Thanksgiving Day for people who do not want to be thankful or Remembrance Day for many in our society who want to support peace instead of war. Dave Harder Chilliwack

Bigger issue is removing Christ Editor: Removing “Christ” from “Christmas” or just calling it a “holiday season” in our schools, stores, and communities should really not be a shock to any Christian. It doesn’t personally offend me if an unbeliever does not want to say “Merry Christmas.” If they are not celebrating Christmas for Christ, then why should I expect them to spend a Christian holiday with the same language, songs, and festivities as myself? In fact, it is probably better that people not pay some token tribute to a much easier to tolerate “baby” Jesus in December, while ignoring His present rule and reign for the rest of the year. If people are offended with you for exuberant “Merry Christmas” wishing, Jesus would tell you “If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you (John 15:18).” It is no shock to the Lord Jesus Christ that people prefer to celebrate presents and fuzzy feelings instead of Him. Whether a school system calls Christmas “Christmas” or not will not change what people believe in their hearts. What I find interesting is the comments of See LETTERS, Page 26

Bruin Brandon Magee avoids a check during action Wednesday night at Prospera Centre. The hometeam fell 7-3 to Saskatoon.

Blades cut down Bruins

hilliwack Bruins winger Curt Gogol couldn’t have asked for a better start against his former team, the Saskatoon Blades. But it was Chris Collins, the Bruin for whom Gogol was traded, who had the last laugh. Gogol opened the scoring before Wednesday’s game was four minutes old and he had his ex-teammates hearing footsteps after throwing a couple of big bodychecks at Prospera Centre. Gogol’s team couldn’t hold the momentum, though. Saskatoon roared back to earn a 7-3 victory, and Collins — for whom Gogol was traded last month — delivered an inspired performance with a goal and an assist. “I really don’t know (where the momentum changed),” said Gogol. “If I knew I would tell you. I’m at a loss for words with that.” Saskatoon tied the game midway through the first and Brent Benson scored for the Blades 20 seconds into the second period to break the tie. Josh Nicholls added his second of the game, a shorthanded marker, 2:29 later and the Blades went on to pile up a 5-1 lead by

the game’s midpoint. “The first game on this road trip (a 21 win Tuesday in Vancouver) we kind of started off slow, too, so there’s no panic in our game,” said Nicholls, who now has 14 goals on the season. “We just realized that we had to stick to our game plan and get pucks in deep.” Lukas Sutter, Connor Cox and Darren Dietz also scored for the Blades (20-6-01), who are in the midst of a five-game B.C. swing. They chased Chilliwack starter Lucas Gore 8:12 into the second after he gave up four goals on 18 shots. His replacement, Braden Gamble, blocked 10 of 13 shots he faced in his first game action in three weeks. At the other end, Saskatoon netminder Steven Stanford had a strong outing with 36 saves. He was particularly sharp early when he robbed Bruins sniper Ryan Howse a couple of times from point-blank range. Chilliwack—which owns the WHL’s top-ranked power play—failed to make the Blades pay for a rash of penalties. Saskatoon killed off all but one of its seven shorthanded

situations. Robin Soudek provided the sole power-play goal for the Bruins (12-10-2-1) and Mike Forsyth scored even-strength. “I’d say we backed off,” said Gogol. “We were inconsistent, we didn’t play a full 60 minutes and look at the result of the game. It’s the same old story right now. We have to learn and we have to learn fast. I thought we were on the right page after beating Portland but I have no idea what to do now. We just have to go back, forget about this and come to play against Kelowna.” The Bruins host the Rockets Friday night at 7:30 p.m. at Prospera Centre. The night features the annual teddy bear and toque toss. After the first Bruins goal fans are encouraged to litter the ice with teddy bears and toques, all of which will then be donated to Chilliwack Community Services.

A lot has changed, but the annual tournament still brings the school together every December, according to coach Joe Mauro. “There’s an atmosphere here that’s created during our week,” he said. “We have a pep rally for it, so it kind of brings the school spirit up.” This year’s Classic (the 31st annual), tips

In keeping with tradition, the highlight of the 10-team tournament is sure to be the cross-town showdown between AAA rivals, CSS and Sardis secondary set for 5:45 p.m. on Thursday. The AA G.W. Graham Grizzlies, ranked 10th in the province, could face their own showdown with eighth-ranked Sa-Hali secondary if the games line up. For Mauro, whose teams will already have played eight exhibition games by Thurday, the tournament is all about showcasing local basketball teams in time for the 2010-11 season.

Bumper reluctantly visits Santa at Minter Country Gardens last Christmas.

Pet pics with Santa Saturday BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he Chilliwack SPCA has enlisted a world famous animal lover for an upcoming fundraiser. The one and only Santa Claus is coming to town three weeks early to raise money for the organization. The jolly bearded guy will be in Chilliwack on Dec. 4 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Minter Country Gardners for the SPCA’s annual Pet Pics with Santa event. With a donation to the SPCA, pet owners will be able to have pictures taken with their animals and Santa. Last year the event raised almost $2,000 in one day, and all the money goes directly to the local shelter. SPCA branch manager Ivanna Ferris said many people use photos taken at the events for Christmas cards.

“People’s pets are like members of the family and for a lot of people this is a special time to get a picture each year and send it off to friends and family,” said Ferris. “It’s a lot of fun.” And not just for the pet owners, apparently. “Santa has a blast posing for pictures with people’s pets,” said Ferris. He’d have to, one imagines, to take time away from his North Pole workshop with Christmas Eve rapidly advancing. While most of the animals that Santa sees are dogs, people have brought cats, ferrets and other household animals for photos. As for presents, Ferris said most dogs would love to find squeaky toys or a special treat; a request Santa often honours. “Santa remembers pets at Christmas time.”

Red hot calendar on sale Saturday

T

h e C h i l l i w a c k Fi re Department’s charity calendars will go on sale Saturday at Cottonwood Mall at Shopper Services. Firefighters will assist with calendar sales on Saturdays leading up to Christmas, and on Dec. 22. Half the money will go to the British Columbia Professional Firefighters Burn Fund, which promotes burn prevention, especially in children, as well as survivor support and recovery programs. The fund helps finance “Burn Camp,” for children recovering from burns, as well as Burn AwarenessWeek. The other half goes to the

Chilliwack Firefighters Charitable Society, which supports a variety of Chilliwack charities, including the Chilliwack Safety Village, the Chilliwack Children’s Foundation and the Salvation Army. Lest you get the wrong idea, the calendar does not include photos of barechested firemen, like some firefighters’ calendars elsewhere. Despite that fact (or, perhaps, because of it) last year’s calendar was a roaring success, raising $15,000 for charity. This year, the firefighters hope to match that total. The calendars are available for a minimum $15 donation.

hilliwack will receive $116,000 in funding from the provincial government to deliver English language support programs to immigrants and refugees. “This funding will support people that have immigrated or relocated to Chilliwack,” Chilliwack MLA John Les said in a press release. “Giving people the tools to transition and adjust to Canadian society will help them quickly become strong, contributing members of the community.” The money is part of the English as a Second Language Settlement Assistance Program (ESLSAP) and will help the Chilliwack Learning Community Society, Agassiz-Harrison Community Services and Hope New Page Human Ser vices deliver tutoring services. ESLSAP is designed as a way to provide access to language support to recent immigrants and refugees in regional and more remote c o m m u n i t i e s. F u n d i n g allows for a co-ordinator to

recruit and provide standardized training to volunteer tutors and match those tutors with immigrants who want to improve their English language skills. Tutoring is focused on the learner’s individual goals and functional language skills that can vary from reading a menu to functioning successfully in a workplace. “Supporting people in their transition to our area will help them prosper economically and socially,” said Chilliwack-Hope MLA Barry Penner. “This funding will help people and families become more inclusive, which helps Chilliwack become stronger and more vibrant.” Chilliwack’s $116,000 is part of $1.6 million in funding to go to 42 service providers across B.C. ESLSAP is one of the programs offered through WelcomeBC. ◗ Information on becoming an ESLSAP volunteer tutor can be found at www. mytrainingbc.ca/eslsap/ recruitment.

Bbbb-ird is the word as local count commences

T

he bird will soon be the word in Chilliwack and along the Harrison River as local volunteers will scour the valley for the annual Christmas Bird Counts. The fowl event takes place on the Harrison River on Dec. 15 and in Chilliwack on Dec. 18. On both of those days volunteers will cast their eyes about for the worldwide bird count, the idea for which was first hatched on Christmas Day of 1900.

On Dec. 14 volunteers should assemble at the Chilliwack Library to receive their routes and checklists for the upcoming counts. T h e d a t a c o m p i l e d by t h e volunteers will then be used by scientists seeking to understand how birds and their habitats are faring in North America. The data both identifies those birds in need of conservation action and reveals success stories. In the past it has helped document

the comeback of the previously e n d a n g e re d Ba l d E a g l e, a n d significant increases in waterfowl populations, both the result of conservation efforts. Accuracy is assured by having new participants join an established group that includes at least one experienced birdwatcher. Count volunteers follow specified routes through a designated circle 24 kilometres in diameter, or can arrange in advance to count the

birds at home feeders inside the circle and submit the results to a designated compiler. All individual Christmas Bird Counts are conducted between Dec. 14 and Jan. 5 (inclusive) each season, with each individual count occupying a single calendar day. “Each CBC volunteer observer is an important contributor, helping to shape the overall direction of bird conservation,” said Dick Cannings, Bird Studies Canada’s

Christmas Bird Count co-ordinator. “Bird Studies Canada and our U.S. partners at Audubon rely on data from the CBC database to monitor bird populations across North America.” The count has come a long way from its turn-of-the-19th-century origins. Compilers enter their count data via Audubon’s website at www.audubon.org/bird/cbc where the count results will be viewable in near real-time.

Local ag industry could be greener

Study says we’re missing out on major new trend

“While each participant had varying opinions, all agreed that the current system is inefficient, time consuming, and acts as a barrier to establishing and growing green and clean energy companies in the region.”

BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

C

hilliwack’s agriculture industries aren’t living up to their green potential according to a recent report from a Vancouver-based green business organization. The Globe Foundation held focus groups around the province— including one in Chilliwack—to determine how government and industry can better grow British Columbia’s green economy. In Chilliwack, the focus was on the clean energy and agriculture sectors, the latter of which, because of a growing focus on food security, could be a major “green” industry. It could be, but isn’t, in large part because much of the food that is grown locally, isn’t processed here. Instead, it’s shipped overseas or across continents to packaging and processing plants elsewhere. That means the industry’s greenhouse footprint is considerable. At the same time, the region’s

A lot of food is grown in Chilliwack but most of it is sent elsewhere for processing. missing out on the all those valueadded dollars. “That would add more money into the local economy, adding jobs,” said Globe’s director of special projects Paul Shorthouse, who took part in the focus group.

While there is interest in bringing processing facilities closer to home, Chilliwack focus group participants told Globe that the Fraser Valley “currently lacks the infrastructure and incentives to process a high percentage of [its]

products locally . . .” More than a dozen people took part in the discussions. That included seven local businesspeople, who “raised concerns over the lack of co-ordinated permitting and environmental assessment

processes and the burden that these cause to local start-up companies,” according to a summary of the focus groups. “While each participant had varying opinions, all agreed that the current system is inefficient, time consuming, and acts as a barrier to establishing and growing green and clean energy companies in the region.” Finally, it was noted that young people—perhaps unsurprisingly—don’t see agriculture as a “sexy” industry that can provide a longterm living wage. Shorthouse said that more value-added processes and the use of green energy could increase salaries and make farming attractive to a new generation of workers. ◗ See the Globe report by visiting www.bcgreeneconomy.com.

Faith Today

Partner with God in your journey FAITH, from page 19 way. Others simply give up because the challenges seem insurmountable leaving them overwhelmed and defeated, or they loose interest because the race reveals much about their character under pressure. However, those who endure to the end, teams that press through the challenges and pain, individuals who allow themselves to be stretched and grow, are offered the opportunity to win an amazing prize as they cross the final finish line. What fascinates me most about this program is that it follows the creative outline of what is arguably the world’s most imaginative and innovative producers. It mirrors a story line that was spoken to people long ago by this same producer, namely God. If you spend any amount of time in the Bible you will discover that life is much like the amazing race. Individuals are invited to

partner with God in a journey through life that, if followed, embraced, and endured, will lead to an amazing finish line. The challenges are real, the rewards are many, the shaping of character guaranteed, and the danger of quitting substantial, but the Bible reveals the finish line is obtainable for those who are bold enough to enter the amazing race of faith in Jesus. Are you engaged in the amazing race? Are you up to the challenge or content to sit on the couch and watch others enjoy the adventure? I, for one, will not miss it! “Let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.” Hebrews 12:1-2

Letters LETTERS, from page 9

Who would be offended? Editor: The school board’s latest decision to call the Christmas break by its proper name is viewed by some as a step backwards in the quest for modern progress. Never mind that even the federal government acknowledges Christmas by declaring Dec. 25 to be a statutory holiday. The argument that those who do not celebrate this season with a Christian perspective might be offended carries little weight, seeing that much of Canada’s Constitution is based on Biblical principles and those who come to Canada are likely well aware of our country’s Christian faith-based heritage. Chilliwack’s very own, Michael Clarke, put together a book entitled CanadaPortraits of Faith in which we find that most of our founding fathers were Christians. I do not see how our wonderful heritage with its long-standing Christmas tradition could offend anyone. Those who immi-

(Try building a Christian church in a Muslim country.) I can’t see that, by denying our country’s heritage, people are made to feel more welcome. With over 60 Christian faith-based churches and obviously thousands of Christians living here in Chilliwack alone, shouldn’t we rather be concerned not to offend those who wish to celebrate this season in the Christian tradition with Christ’s birth at the centre? Mario C. Alleckna Chilliwack

Christmas is Christmas Editor: I say hooray to those who stood up and made the decision to put “Christ” back in “Christmas.” That is exactly what the break is and why it changed was ridiculous. Hello, this is Canada. If you don’t like it, maybe you should move. This is our way and our life. No, I am not racist, but political correcteness has gone way too far. Christmas is Christmas. That is all there is to it. So I say Merry Christmas, everybody and have a Happy New Year. B. Cote Chiliwack

No holiday without Christ Editor: Good for you for putting Christmas back in the holiday. If it wasn’t for Christ there would be no Chirstmas, and if it wasn’t for Christmas there would be no holiday. A lot of non-Christians celebrate Christmas. Take a vote of all the citizens of Chilliwack and see how many people celebrate. You might be surprised. Tina Harder Chilliwack

Disappointed by CTA & PAC Editor: I salute the Chilliwack school board of trustees to

change the name from Winter Holidays into Christmas Holidays. I am disappointed in the Chilliwack Teachers Association and the Parent Advisory Council in not embracing the decision of the school board. They condemn the decision and claim that this is a “step backwards.” Furthermore, they also claim the board has made an “insensitive decision.” I feel that the teachers association and the Parent Advisory Council slams anyone in this community who does celebrate Christmas. You claim that you will uphold a higher tolerance in this community. The good

Put in the right perspective Editor: Re: Your good article in Nov. 26 edition of the Times. Thank you for inviting us to comment. I want to say to Chris Walford and Cherryl Katnich, thank you, and I agree wholeheartedly with what both of you wrote. I would like to direct my comments to Katharin Midzain, and Kristen Brandreth. Perhaps the two of you have missed the real message of Christmas or else have chosen not to believe any of it. The angel who appeared to the shepherds to give them the message in Luke 2:811said and I quote: “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord.”

This message of good news is not only for us in Canada, but includes all people even those whom you think would be “offended” by it. Why in the world would you try to hide this from all those dear people whom God loves as much as He does you and me. If you choose not to go to heaven when you die, that’s your choice, but that gives you no right to keep the good news of eternal salvation from others. Perhaps this was God’s way of exposing them to Jesus, by allowing them to migrate here. You who are in charge of teaching our kids and young people, have a very great responsibility on your shoulders. I don’t write this to offend you, I’m just trying to put things in right perspective. Bill Zacharias Chilliwack

Hats off to school board Editor: Hats off to the school trustees for being brave enough to take our holiday back.

The school break is called Christmas break or holidays for a reason and we should not have to change the name just to be politically correct. Tell me why we have to do so? We do not ask other cultures (beliefs) to change the name of their holidays, do we? Heather Maahs was undeterred by the chastisement. “I say we sacrifice too much as a society when we bend to political correctness,” she said after the meeting, “and I think the vast majority of people are just fine with it being Christmas as opposed to winter vacation.” I so agree with Maahs. Right on lady, well done. Monika Malow Chilliwack

Nobody called it Winter Break Editor: I am interested to know how many of the people on the school board, when they were little, called it a Winter Holiday. It has been called Christmas See LETTERS, Page 37

people on the school board who are appalled by the insensitivity and intolerant nature of calling Christmas “Christmas” in our schools. I went to public school right here in our community. I learned many things that are intolerant to me as Christian. I find the teaching of evolution to be preposterous, and it certainly doesn’t line up with my personal and scriptural belief in Creation. I learned all about “safe sex” and “birth control methods” and heard plenty enough pro-choice arguments in school, which were not only intolerable to me, but damnable. In middle school our class was told by a teacher that we would have to “find out” our sexual preference, whether we were straight, homosexual, or bisexual. Try that advice on for size when you’re 13 years old. Due to my experience and observation of public education I would suggest that if there is any group of people who are not well “tolerated” or considered in the public education system (and my experience is that this gets worse in university), it is conservative, Bible-believing Christians. I would also suggest that parents and school board members have much greater problems to discuss than whether or not a calendar says “Merry Christmas” on it. Removing Christ from Christmas is only a byproduct of attempting to remove Him from every other area of public schools, and this I believe is to our society’s detriment. Charlene Nelson Chilliwack

Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra flutist Kevin Andrews makes his 9k gold and sterling silver flute sing. BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

C

hilliwack Symphony Orchestra flutist Kevin Andrews won’t say how much his gold and silver flute is worth. I didn’t cost him a thing, and as far as he’s concerned, it was a gift from God. His career as a flutist began about 30 years ago, and he’s been playing professionally for about 20. For most of that time, Andrews has gone from one bottom-of-theline, $500 student-model instrument to the next.

Flute breaking was a blessing in disguise But he reached the end of the line three years ago when his flute literally fell apart during a church Christmas concert. “I was just about to play and heard something go clunk,” he said. He had to borrow a flute to finish the concert and also to play at a friend’s wedding the following summer. At that wedding, though, was a woman who had heard the flutist play before and who felt God wanted her to bless Andrews the way his music had blessed her.

What better way than to buy him a really good flute? The instrument he plays now is a custom-made Powell Aurumite 9k flute made with one layer of 9k rose gold and one layer of sterling silver A little Internet research puts the price of similar instruments somewhere around the $10,000 range. Andrews picked it out of six or seven professional models that a music-store owner had arranged for him to look at. “This flute just sang,” said Andrews. “I didn’t do anything. It

was singing all by itself.” Price alone, however, will not make an instrument sing, according to Andrews. Much depends on the flutist’s lips and how the flute is made— something he has seen some musicians learn the hard way after spending thousands of dollars on an instrument that isn’t right for them. Andrews took up the flute relatively late in life after playing the trumpet for six or seven years in his late teens and early 20s. He had, in fact, planned his

whole life around the trumpet, including getting a performance degree and playing in the military band in Halifax. (Andrews is a Nova Scotia native.) But a cracked tooth, which materialized out of nowhere and made it painful to play, nixed those plans. He says he eventually decided to learn the flute because he found it was harder to play than it looked. “I always take on challenges that way,” he said. “I guess I’m stubborn or stupid. I don’t know which.” While the fingering on the flute See FLUTE, Page 31

Flute a very adaptable instrument FLUTE, from page 28

is simpler than any of the other woodwind instruments, playing it takes as much air as the tuba, said Andrews, because only a quarter of the air a flutist blows out makes it into the instrument. And how the flutist blows that air—the shape of the lips, angle of the instrument, size of the hole and position of the jaw— makes all the difference. Having mastered the instrument, Andrews now appreciates the flute for how adaptable it is to different musical contexts, from classical to jazz to pop. The instrument’s three-octave range along with its speed, made possible by the simple fingering, make it especially versatile. And for the one thing his flute doesn’t provide—sheer volume—Andrews has another outlet: the drums. While he plays flute for the CSO, he also plays the drums in a local Dixieland band, and his professional career has included both playing and teaching percussion. “With the flute you can play all the sweet stuff, but you can’t blow the back wall out,” said Andrews. “With percussion, you can, so I can cover the whole gamut.”

Chilliwack School of Performing Arts instructor Stefanie Swinnard teaches 12 young students how to be munchkins for the Wizard of Oz.

They’re off to see the Wizard BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he Wizard may come from Oz, but the munchkins are pure Chilliwack. A dozen kids from the Chilliwack School of Performing Arts (CSOPA) are now amid three weeks of intense rehearsals for their parts in the touring classic show The Wizard of Oz coming to Prospera Centre on Dec. 11 for one show only. “We’ve taken half their year and condensed it into three weeks for one night,” said Stefanie Swinnard, the CSOPA instructor charged with the task of teaching the 12 students their acting, singing and dancing parts. Swinnard was referring to the fact

V

that one course at CSOPA amounts to 48 hours of instruction and that, in three weeks at eight hours a week, the kids have 24 hours of rehearsals to get in between school and other CSOPA classes. But despite the volume of material to learn, including roles as the munchkins in Munchkin Land and then later the Winkie guards, Swinnard said the students love it. “It’s exciting,” he said. “They are absolutely thrilled.” Swinnard was sent all the material by the production company and had to quickly learn it all herself, then lay it out and make it happen with her 12 young thespians. The Wizard of Oz is on a national tour and is based on the Royal

Shakespeare Company’s celebration of the iconic 1939 MGM film. The producers say the show features dazzling choreography wonderful costumes and some of the most memorable music of our time. Director Nigel West, choreographer Leigh Constantine and set and costume designer Tim McQuillen-Wright utilize the glamour and elegance of art deco Hollywood as the visually stunning technicolor backdrop for The Wizard of Oz. Dorothy and Toto are transported “Over the Rainbow” to find adventures with her friends in Munchkin Land, the Haunted Forest and Emerald City. Featuring classic songs by Harold

Arlen and E.Y. Harburg—“Over the Rainbow,” “Ding Dong the Witch is Dead” and “Merry Old Land of Oz”—along with the beloved characters, The Wizard of Oz will have the entire family captivated as they travel down the yellow brick road for an unforgettable evening at the theatre. ◗ The Wizard of Oz plays Prospera Centre Dec. 11 at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $39.50 and go up to $67 plus service charges and are on sale now. Tickets are available through all Ticketmaster outlets, online at www.ticketmaster.ca, by phone at 1-800-663-9311 and at the Prospera Centre Box Office, 45323 Hodgins Ave., Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Low attendance spells end for annual jazz festival BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

In June of 2008 the Chilliwack Happy Times Jazz Society announced the Chilliwack Jazz Festival was no more after low attendance numbers at that year’s event. Then, a month later, the festival was saved as “reinforcement troops

A number of alumni now perform professionally arrived,” according to society president Owen Skonberg. But on Wednesday, Skonberg announced the society is once again disbanding and the festival is cancelled. “Many people have been asking us about the dates for next year’s Chilliwack Jazz Festival and although the continued support is appreciated, it’s time to officially announce the

dissolution of our Happy Times Jazz Society and consequently the festival,” Skonberg announced in a statement to the media. “We are so proud that we were able to provide our community with a fun-filled weekend event and exposure to some of the world’s best traditional jazz musicians for over 20 years. We’ve made the decision to close based on the increas-

and connection with the Lindy Hop dance community,” Skonberg said. “It’s just not enough to consider it a business, which in this day and age is essential to a festival’s success.” The society thanked Chilliwack senior secondary’s music program and its directors, Rob Hopkins and Gary Raddysh, in addition to the many sponsors, volunteers, teachers, musicians, and patrons who have supported jazz in Chilliwack for the past 22 years.

Eleven-year-old Emma Boutilier won the Ultimate Threat title at the Triple Threat Dance Convention in Vancouver in November.

Local dancer the Ultimate Threat Boutilier shines at competition

A

n 11-year-old dancer from Project Dance in Chilliwack has been deemed an “Ultimate Threat” at the Triple Threat Dance Convention—the highest honour offered by the convention organizers. Emma Boutilier, who has been with Project Dance since its opening three years ago, won a cash scholarship at the Triple Threat Dance Convention, held Nov. 20-21 at the Vancouver Hyatt, and earned the right to participate tuition-free in any upcoming Triple Threat Convention in the coming year. Josh Phillips, 12, also of Project Dance, was Ultimate Threat runner-up. “ Tr i p l e T h r e a t w a s amazing,” said Boutilier, a Grade 6 student at Vedder elementary. “I learned a lot, and even did some ballroom dancing. Winning the Ultimate Threat was a great way to finish the event.” “We are so thrilled for Emma and Josh in being the winner and runner-up in the junior division,” said

Project Dance owner/director Amanda Quinton. “All of our students worked so hard at the convention, and for Emma and Josh to be selected from the many participants from all over the Lower Mainland to receive top honours is a great accomplishment.” The Vancouver convention marked the 13th for Triple Threat, whose faculty includes a number of high-profile namesinthedanceworldfrom So You Think You Can Dance (Canada and U.S) Tyce Diorio, Lil ‘C, and Stacey Tookey, as well as choreographers from Dancing With the Stars and others who have worked with recording artists and film productions. There are Definite Threat, Future Threat andUltimateThreatcategories in senior, intermediate and junior divisions. The convention also provides workshops for dance teachers. “Project Dance had a large contingent of dance teachers attend the conference as well,” added Quinton. “This underlines our faculty’s commitment to keep up with current dance trends and techniques.” ◗ For more on the studio visit www.projectdancechilliwack. com.

Letters LETTERS, from page 26

Board deserves our thanks Editor: My congratulations and great thanks to Chilliwack school trustees for standing up for the rights of Canadians and standing up for Christmas. Why are we encouraged to lie about what the festivities are all about? It’s absolutely ridiculous. It’s Christmas. We live in a free country that’s why so many from all over this world want to come and live here. But more and more of the freedom is being taken away. We as Canadians have always celebrated Christmas and many from other cultures and religions have made it a part of their family tradition as well. The small percentage of those who want to eliminate Christmas from their lives have every right to choose so, but it should not be their right to take it away from the majority. Again, a huge, huge thank you to Heather Maahs, Doug McKay, Martha Wiens and all those on the Chilliwack school board. Rhonda Mulrooney Chilliwack

If God offends you—move Editor: Canadian culture has been developed over several centuries of struggles, trials and victories by millions of men and women who have sought freedom. Most Canadians believe in God. This is not some Christian, right wing, political push, but a fact, because Christian men and women, on Christian principles, founded this nation, and this is clearly documented. It is certainly appropriate to display it on the walls of our schools, to teach it to our children, to flaunt it,( if that is our wish) but most important to make it known that it is part of our heritage. If God offends you, then I would suggest to you to consider another part of the world as your new home,

Kudos to board for decision Editor: Thank you for this opportunity to express my opinion on this subject. I say kudos to all members of our school board who voted to make this decision a reality. Let’s continue to call Christmas what it is and I trust you will all enjoy a blessed one. W. Spies Chilliwack

Need to accept our culture Editor: It is most refreshing to know that some people will stand up for our Christian principles. Christmas is celebrating Christ’s birth—that is a historic fact. People coming to this country don’t seem to mind as we all know when you come to a different country there are many things which will not be the same as in your homeland. I don’t believe they do not expect us (our government) to change everything. It would seem like the people coming here should be willing to accept some of our culture. E. Tjernagel Chilliwack

When in Rome do as Romans Editor: I was so thrilled to see the headlines that announced that our school board is calling the Christmas break what it is. If we went to the countries of those who do not believe in Christianity they would certainly not change the way they worship to accommodate us and I personally would not expect them to. There is an old saying, “When in Rome do as the Romans do.”

June 4, 1947 ~ November 28, 2010 With sadness, the family of Helmut Kuester would like to announce the passing from this life into the next on Sunday, November 28, 2010 in Chilliwack, B.C. Helmut was born on June 4, 1947 in Kapfenberg, Austria. He immigrated to Canada, along with his parents, John and Anna, and his brother, Henry, in 1950. After living in Yarrow for a short time, he grew up in Sardis. He was always known as a hard worker; in his youth many summers were spent picking beans and berries and hauling hay for the local farmers. At age sixteen, he began a career on the tugboats, which lasted for twenty two years. In his later years, he worked for the John I. Haas Hop Company and for Wisbey’s Farms. Helmut is survived by his wife, Roxanne. He also leaves six children: Bryan, Lawna, Clayton, Amber, Loriann, and Haley, ten grandchildren and two brothers, Henry (Lorraine), and Ron (Cindy), and his sister Monica (Bryan) Gordon. Helmut was predeceased by his parents John and Anna. The memorial service will be at 11 a.m. on Saturday December 4 at St. Mary’s Church, 8909 Mary Street, Chilliwack. Should family and friends so desire, donations in Helmut’s memory may be made to the B.C. Lung Association.

Find Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Mellow times, understanding, a bigger world view, love – these float toward you all week, especially Sunday/Monday. So do cultural involvements, social rituals, higher education, far travel, legal affairs, media, insurance and intellectual endeavours. Friday begins three weeks of backward motion in these areas, and in career, so finish things up now – don’t begin anything new before Dec. 30. Paradoxically, just as your daily life slows down, your hopes and plans for the future begin to clear and form. Tackle ambitions, duties Tuesday/Wednesday. Happiness, delight, friends Thursday/Friday! Taurus April 20-May 20: You’re wading into life’s mysteries, into financial, sexual and health depths. This could be a rather rocky or surprising ride, Taurus, so go slow, don’t expect much, and be wary of commitment. Events and plans begin to meet delays, indecision and backward directions Friday through Dec. 29. Use this week to finish up “hanging” tasks, to gather loose threads – start nothing new before Dec. 30. A former opportunity might return: judge it on its merits: if good, go ahead. Now to early January, others treat you very affectionately. Show ambition (without commitment) Thursday/Friday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Work goes well all December; co-workers show affection. You’re approaching an investment,big life change,or intimate commitment, but it’s delayed because you need to “revise” a relationship. (The other party might force revision.) Good – otherwise you’d build on a false, flimsy or misaligned base. Applies to both money and love. All these – big changes, sexual bonding, investments, etc. – will flow in more naturally and healthily in January. Use this week to finish up tasks, projects – a period of delay, mistakes and indecision occurs Friday to Dec. 29. Start nothing new.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Start NO new projects, tasks, nor relationships before Dec. 30. Guard against mistakes, be prepared for delays. Use this week to finish ongoing ventures, then keep an eye, the rest of December, on people or opportunities returning from the past. Relationships intensify into January – and romance plays a song! A hectic work phase ends Tuesday – life grows easier. A powerful, lucky career, business phase will begin in late January: rest now, so you’ll be energetic then. Though little things stall, big things march ahead. Mysteries intrigue Thursday/ Friday. Love wins, Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Start nothing new before Dec. 30. Stick with ongoing projects and relationships, or those returning from the past. (An old flame might be coming, but won’t appear until late December.) All month, your home life glows with affection and peace. It’s a great time to finish decoration projects begun in the past. Be alert on the job and around equipment: mistakes, confusion are quite possible. DON’T buy tools, machines, TVs, etc. Romance, pleasure, beauty and a general creative, speculative and winning streak fill the weeks ahead. Exciting meetings Thursday-Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A period of delay, indecision, mistakes and missed meetings begins Friday, and lasts through Dec. 29. During this phase, don’t start significant new projects of any kind. An old flame might return – but only briefly, as the weeks ahead tend toward endings rather than beginnings. It’s more likely that you’ll chase an ongoing love. In either case, romance brings talk, intimacy and intensity! Communications and travel will be gratifying and affectionate. This week, finish tasks. Sunday/Monday set the tone for the month: home, security, family, property. Tackle chores Thursday/Friday.

BIG Savings... ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Start nothing new before Dec. 30. Mistakes, confusion and delays affect new projects until then. Focus on past and ongoing links, ventures. Your money picture is favourable all December – but don’t buy anything significant, including clothes.You might be called back to a security or family issue. Christmas will likely involve travel to old haunts – and nostalgia. Make arrangements, buy tickets now, as unavailability begins soon. If you meet an “ex” this month, it will likely only confirm “the end.” You’ll be busy but happy. Romance, a winning streak come Thursday/Friday! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Finish rather than initiate relationships, projects, tasks and obligations this week – and the next three. A period of delays, mistakes and indecision starts Friday, lasting to Dec. 30. You’re favoured in money now, especially Sunday/Monday, but avoid big new purchases all month. You’re vibrant, your charms glow, you’ll have a month of “good hair days.” You’ll be very busy with communications, details, paperwork and travel – but keep an eye on more private or hidden factors, feelings that are just below the surface: these might conflict with the messages you send. Romance Saturday? Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, charisma and optimism are boundless now! But don’t start anything new and important before Dec. 30. Especially avoid important purchases. Do all your Christmas shopping as early as possible: this Monday to Wednesday is best. Despite your high charisma and personal “clout” this month, your private world, your inner self, glow with a peaceful happiness. The government benefits you. Your monetary hopes centre on someone older or younger, through 2012 – an important project is brewing; be patient. Arrive “in person” Monday. Home sweet home Saturday.

Dec. 5 - Dec. 11 Capricorn Dec.22-Jan.19:Rest,lielow,contemplate your plans – and the meaning of life, love, spirit. Your energy and judgment falter, but your determination and sexual charisma are high all month. Don’t let this combination lead you into error. Start nothing important before Dec. 30 – mistakes, indecision, second thoughts and delays are rife. Instead, protect and nurture ongoing projects and relationships, and reprise those from the past. Your social side returns – someone affectionate “watches out” for you. Accept private invitations. Your money luck rises briefly Thursday/Friday. Call, travel Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: On the one hand, wishes come true now, social delights arrive, flirtations and light love hover around you, your popularity rises, and entertainment’s everywhere. On the other hand, this is a poor time, through Dec. 29, to start any new projects or relationships. So protect your work life from delays, mistakes and misunderstood communications all month, double-check and have a “Plan B.” But once you do this, charge into leisure! Avoid gossip, loose lips and dangerous places. All these apply all month. Sunday/Monday are happy. Rest midweek. You shine Thursday/Friday! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Finish rather than start projects this week. A period of confusion, indecision, mistakes and delays begins Friday, lasting through Dec. 29. It will particularly affect your social, career and “future plans” areas. In these, a former person or opportunity might return – if so, luck favours taking it/him/her up again. Love relationships that are kept light can be hot, sensual, but lack the sweetness required for durability. Letting a relationship become profound will supply that sweet affection. Be ambitious Sunday/Monday. Rest Thursday/Friday. You burst with energy Saturday! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
