Pointless theft of plaques

ore plaques have been stolen near the former CFB Chilliwack but this time the victims aren’t the only one’s getting ripped off. Thieves stole two of 17 plaques from Garrison Crossing’s Legacy Walk sometime between April 30 and May 4. The walk commemorates the history of the former CFB Chilliwack, and the theft of the plaques came just days after a valuable plaque at Sapper’s Cenotaph Park was stolen. The irony of the latest theft is that while the plaques will cost the Canada Lands Company upwards of $4,000 to replace them, their combined scrap value is less than $5. That fact is not lost on Canada Lands Company’s incensed director of planning and land development, Randy Fasan. Fasan noticed See PLAQUES, Page 3

irefighters were kept busy over the weekend responding to two separate fires started by youths. A 12-year-old boy suffered burns to his hands, and a shed was damaged after a fire erupted Friday evening in an outbuilding on Tupper Street. “The cause of the fire has been determined to be a 12-year-old male playing with matches and gasoline causing a fire in the garage which spread into the contents of the building,” assistant fire chief Jeff Ullyot said in a press release. Fire also spread to the building’s roof. On Sunday morning, firefighters were called to the 46000 block of Second Avenue, where they found a burning mattress and boxspring on a patio deck. Ullyot said the fire likely started in a rear bedroom, where a five-yearold boy was playing with a butane lighter while the adults slept. A fire alarm woke the other tenants. Damage to the building was minimal, but one occupant was treated for minor smoke inhalation while the hands of two adults were burned when they removed the mattress from the home.

Rash of thefts at Garrison
Briefly Guilty of arson and assault A Chilliwack man was found guilty Friday of arson and assault causing bodily harm in connection to a house fire last year on Bernard Avenue. Supreme Court Justice Brian Joyce found that Kevin M. Isaac set the fire last May 8 after assaulting a woman in the home. “I am satisfied beyond a reasonable doubt that Mr. Isaac lit the fire in the closet,” said Joyce. Joyce said the fire was set as a misguided attempt at getting back with the woman, and that Isaac likely knew a downstairs suite was occupied. The fire caused substantial damage to the top floor of the home, along with light smoke and water damage to the main floor. Isaac had admitted to assaulting the woman, but disagreed that he had caused “bodily harm.” Joyce, though, said: “The injury caused by the assault was more than . . . transient in nature.”

2000 Murdered after movie
Chilliwack resident Darrin Pollard was convicted of second degree murder in the stabbing death of his common-law wife, Cheryl Lynn Glover. Pollard stabbed Glover to death in their Chilliwack townhouse after a night of drinking and watching the slasher movie I Know What You Did Last Summer. The couple were characterized as heavy drinkers.
PLAQUES, from page 1 the plaques were missing last Tuesday. The incident is just the latest in a rash of wire and metal thefts around the development. Garrison Crossing already employs security guards to monitor the site, but that hasn’t stopped people from ripping wires out of lamp posts and metal covers from sprinklers. “Beyond the security measures that we’ve already taken, there’s really nothing else that we can do,” Fasan told the Times.

Clarence Wiens almost lost his rabbit ears as he led the little ones out in the 1K kids fun run at Sunday’s Envision Run for Mom.
Big bucks raised at Run
BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
undreds of runners hit the pavement and the Rotary Trail on Sunday, raising more than $20,000 at the 12th annual Envision Run for Mom. There were more than 700 participants in the eight-kilometre road race, five-kilometre walk and one-kilometre kids’ fun run. The annual Mother’s Day celebration event started and finished in the parking lot at the University of the Fraser Valley’s Trades and Technology Centre. The first place finisher in the sanctioned eight-kilometre race was Rob Lang of Chilliwack in a time of 30 minutes and 25 seconds. Ron Wichmann of
Rob Lang takes 8 km race, but real winner is Chilliwack General Hospital Chilliwack came in 34 seconds behind him and Jerry Kroll, also of Chilliwack, finished another 45 seconds later. The top female finisher was Chilliwack teenager Kristy Ricard in a time of 36:56. Marina Glasgow of Abbotsford (a CGH employee) was the second female in at 35:59 and Susan Northey of Chilliwack was the third female in at 36:50. Organizers thanked the hundreds who attended the successful event, particularly as the Run for Mom fell on the same day this year as the popular Vancouver Sun Run, this year attended by over 50,000 people.
The Run for Mom is a fundraiser for the Fraser Valley Health Care Foundation in Chilliwack and supporting programs for women and children at Chilliwack General Hospital. Specifically, this year’s proceeds will go towards the purchase of a non-invasive jaundice meter and a glidescope video laryngoscope. The jaundice meter allows medical staff to obtain data from newborns without having to do an invasive blood test. The glidescope provides a realtime view of airways, which enables quick intubation.

As for the plaques, Fasan said: “We thought they were pretty secure. We’ll double check the ones that remain, but where there’s a will, there’s a way.” While the thieves clearly don’t please Fasan, the scrap metal dealers who accept their stolen property seem to anger him most. “They wouldn’t be doing this if there weren’t unscrupulous metal dealers who are taking obviously stolen materials,” said Fasan. “You get some character walking in with a bundle of wire, it’s not rocket science to figure out what this person’s been up to. “The only way to put these people out of business, and the police have known this for a long time, is to catch the businesses that are actually paying money for this contraband.” Fasan said he hopes the public will help put the metal thieves out of business by contacting police.

he 2009 flood in Greendale that forced dozens of families from their homes was caused by a unique combination of weather events that led to numerous failings in the drainage system, according to the consultant’s report posted on the city’s website Friday. “There is no single part of the system that failed; nor single cause to the problem,” the Urban Systems report said of the Greendale drainage systems. In January 2009, dozens of homes in Greendale had water running through living rooms, and many more were inundated with water in basements and crawlspaces. Drainage systems throughout the city were operating at peak capacity and beyond. Two months after the flood, city council commissioned Urban Systems to answer four key questions: what caused the flood; how significant was the rainstorm?; what part of the drainage system failed?; and what changes should be made to reduce the chance of such a flood happening again? The cause, as concluded in the report, is no different from what was reported more than a year ago. The recipe for the 2009 flood: Sudden above-zero temperatures greeted by back-toback record-breaking days of rain landing on nearly two feet of snow that sat upon ground frozen by unusually cold temperatures in December. “[A] unique sequence of climatic conditions occurred directly within the community itself,
and was not attributed to the overtopping of an external watercourse,” the report said. As for the significance of the rainstorm, the consultants concluded this was “not easily quantified,” because it was so unusual. The drainage system in the community of Greendale did not have the capacity to deal with the heavy run-off and rains over those few days in January, according to the report. To help deal with future floods, the consultants recommend a number of options for the city to consider. Of first importance is upgrading the Collinson pump station followed by upgrades to the McGillivray pump station. The price tag for these upgrades is $4.9 million. Other recommendations include: $8.8 million to replace 71 culverts in the area; and $2.6 million for two new drainage channels. Coun. Ken Huttema, chair of the rural issues advisory committee that presented the report to Greendale residents on April 29, said the report is back in the hands of staff to consider what to recommend to council. No funds for any work have been budgeted for this year so any expense would have to be considered carefully, he said. The city can do some work in terms of more regular ditch cleaning, but the major works recommended by the consultant come with hefty price tags. “You spend upwards of $18 million in one area [to protect from a flood] that may not happen for 100 years to save a million and a half dollars,” Huttema said. “Is that cost effective?” The estimated cost of property damage from the January 2009 flood was $1.5 million for all of Chilliwack, not just Greendale.

Childcare providers essential
922 pot plants found
hilliwack police busted a medium-sized grow operation on Murray Road Saturday. Mounties searched the home after being tipped off about the theft of power. Inside they seized 922 mature pot plants and one 2 7 - y e a r- o l d C h i l l i w a c k woman. “With this particular grow operation, it was clear the entire property was being used for the growing,” said Cpl. Lea-Anne Dunlop in a press release. The woman was released on a promise-to-appear in court at a later date.

hildcare providers share a high and sometimes lonely destiny, but May is their month to shine. It’s Child Care Month, and around the province, people who take care of kids are being celebrated May 20—Child Care Provider Appreciation Day. In Chilliwack, Child Care Resource and Referral (CCRR)—a Chilliwack Community Services program that brings together parents and licensed/registered childcare providers—will host an appreciation night for the roughly 120 childcare providers who work with them. It’s an important bit of recognition for people who play a vital role in our society, according to CCRR coordinator Barb Presseau. “It’s not a high-paying position, typically, and yet the future of our community is in their hands for many hours a week,” she said, Bringing childcare providers together is especially important because their work often keeps them isolated from colleagues. Tanya Carlisle-Brown, who runs Country Cottage Family Childcare, says there’s no other job she’d rather have but adds it’s nice to get together with others who understand the ups and downs. “Nobody else really knows your busy days and how draining it can be other than somebody else who does it,” she said. Carlisle-Brown registered with CCRR when she started up her business five years ago, and she says the program is a lifeline to training, resources and support. “I know it sounds corny,” she said, “but they feel like family.” CCRR set up shop in Chilliwack 20 years ago with the goals of supporting childcare providers with training and resources, and improving the quality of care available to kids in the community. Driving the program was a growing awareness of the importance of quality care in the early years for a child’s development and future, and for the wellbeing of families. “Childcare providers have always known it,” said Presseau. “Now research is actually showing it.”
Tanya Carlisle-Brown of Country Cottage Family Childcare collects a worm for her wormery while her daughter Olivia Brown, 2, and Noah Choi, 5, look on with the rest of the children in Carlisle-Brown’s care. Besides connecting parents with licensed and registered childcare providers, CCRR also works to attract childcare providers who aren’t registered and licensed to get them on board. “Our program’s main goal is to be supportive and to bring them to a best practice,” said Presseau. For her, childcare in the early years needs to move beyond babysitting because children learn so much in the first six years of life.
“We want to make sure people know that the early years are vital to a child’s future and that means the future of our whole community,” she said. That’s why this month CCRR is taking time out to recognize the childcare providers who hold that future in hands. ◗ For more information about CCRR call 604-7924267 or visit www.childcarechoices.ca.
mistaken address may have led two would-be home invaders to the wrong home Saturday. Police say that two men broke into a home, on the 45300 block of McIntosh Drive, and pepper-sprayed the male occupant. The man, however, was able to fight off the two suspects, who left without taking anything. In the struggle at the home, a glass table was broken and cut one of the suspects on the leg. Adding insult to injury, police say they arrested a 27-yearold Chilliwack man when he sought medical help at Chilliwack General Hospital. The man is now facing charges of break and enter, and assault with a weapon. Police are still searching for his colleague.

Few fond memories of house
F.G. Leary Fine Arts Elementary School presents
BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
onsidered a heritage home of significance by some, the“Big House” on Sto:lo Nation property held terrible memories for others, according to the chair of the Coqualeetza Cultural Education Centre board. The prominent house on Vedder Road was demolished on April 26 after years of physical neglect on top of decades of emotional torment for those who know what happened behind the walls. The house was built in 1894 as the residence for the principal of the Coqualeetza residential school that was attended by First Nations from all over B.C. between 1886 and 1939. The Times reported last week that Leqamel band member Patricia Kelly’had proposed to buy the house, move it across the street and renovate the dilapidated structure. But Coqualeetza board chair Ken Malloway said the building was in such bad shape that insurance was no longer even possible for the structure. He said the board spoke with elders, some of whom told him “they can burn it down as far as they care.” Before she died, Malloway said his mother told him about her time as a student at the residential school at Coqualeetza. “She was five-years-old when she went there and she couldn’t speak English, she could only speak Halq’amélyem,” he said. “Every time she spoke her language she got the strap. And when she got the strap it was in the Big House. That’s where they went for punishment.

Some were sad to see the “Big House” at Coqualeetza torn down, but many Sto:lo elders had bad memories of the house that was built for the residential school principal in 1894. “That place doesn’t have any good memories for us.” Malloway said there are even some fond memories among Sto:lo elders of residential schools, but that old house was not one of them. “She never talked to me about residential school at Coqualeetza her whole life until maybe the last couple of years before she died she talked about it. There was bad things that happened in that place,” he said. “There was children that died there and never ever made it home. They are buried in our cemeteries around here. “I talked to my mother about it and she told me things that happened there that would just make your hair stand on end. By the time I grew up and talked to my mom, she couldn’t understand the language any more. She couldn’t speak it any more. It was beaten out of her. She
had no fond memories of that place.” Malloway said the board considered Kelly’s proposal to pay $1 for the house and to move it and renovate it, but decided against the offer. He said he had never heard anything about a $100,000 offer that Kelly says she and her partner Lothar Drews offered Sto:lo Nation. As for the heritage nature of the building, Malloway was dismissive. “It’s not Stonehenge,” he said. “It’s an old house that belonged to the principal of the residential school. . . . It doesn’t hold the same kind of sentimental value to most of our people as you might be led to believe.” Sto:lo Nation archeologist Dave Schaepe said the building was decrepit and had to be removed from the grounds. He also said that “the heritage value has been preserved” and the building had become a liability.

City moves for health day
round 4,000 Chilliwack residents, workers and city officials took part in this year’s Move for Health Day Monday. By mid-day Monday, 3,958 people had taken part locally in the provincewide event, which aims to get participants to exercise for at least 30 minutes. Gordon Pederson, the city’s Move for Health co-ordinator, said he was happy with the turnout, which exceeded the city’s goal of 3,500 participants. Pederson and other city officials hit the road Friday at lunch to

Be vigilant parents. While matches, lighters and other firestarting tools should be kept out of reach of children, after the ages of seven or eight, “education has to kick in,” said Van Beest; the older a child gets, the greater his ability grows to find and use matches and lighters, if he or she so desires. “The explanation has to be made that matches and lighters are tools, not toys,” said Van Beest. “And parents must be vigilant in ensuring that fire setting materials are not in the reach of small children.”

Don van Beest, who runs the department’s juvenile fire setter program, says he deals with anywhere between 12 to 30 youths each year. Van Beest told the Times that his job is to first determine if an incident is the result of “fire setting” or “fire play.” (He had not yet spoken to the youths involved in this weekend’s fires). Fire setting is a symptom of deeper problems, and in such cases, van Beest refers the youth to a professional counsellor. Fire play, on the other hand, “is an inappropriate exploration of fire,” said Van Beest. In those cases, Van Beest puts on a fire education program for the youths and their
launch the event. “We have made it our goal to try and get people more active in the community,” said Pederson. The city worked with the YMCA, the school district, FVRD, and the operator of the Landing and Cheam Leisure Centres, among other groups, to get Chilliwack residents moving. “The 30-minute number is the general figure you need to have your heart working at a capacity where you get a benefit of exercise,” said Pederson.

Long organized crime history
rime goes back a long way. Probably as far back as the first caveman who realized he could pummel his friend with a rock and steal his slice of mastodon steak. Organized crime probably is a little younger. A week or so, maybe. That’s when three cavemen banded together to beat up and rob anyone walking by their cave. Human beings are inherently sociable, and a fraction of them are always willing to break the rules to get what they want. Combine those two traits, and you get criminal gangs. What we think of as organized crime didn’t really get started until the medieval era, when smuggling became a big industry. They were probably smuggling wine or wool, not drugs or guns, but the principle is the same. The other thing about ancient organized crime is that the scale could be vast. The Vikings stole entire countries, for example. It’s easy to see how this started. Two frigid Norsemen, standing in a howling gale somewhere near Uppsala, wiping snotsicles off their moustaches. “Hey, Svein?” “Yeah, Leif?” “Is there anywhere warmer we could be right now?” “Ireland is nice, I’m told. They have lots of monasteries stuffed
Be Our Guest with priceless icons.” “And we’re enormous, terrifying lunatics with massive swords. We could take all that stuff, and maybe get ourselves a couple of vacation homes farther south.” “Good plan. I’ll build a ship shaped like a dragon, you round up 50 unemployed berserkers.” The Vikings invaded and conquered parts of England, Scotland, Ireland, and France. Sure, Vikings would take your stuff and kill you, maybe even take over your country. But they were up front about it. Later, organized criminals hid in shadows. In the late 1800s, a scheme known as the Black Hand became widespread among Italian gangs in the United States. The victim—usually a reasonably prosperous Italian immigrant—got a letter marked with the hand, and a threat: pay up, or else. The thing about it that made the Black Hand so terrifying was that the gangs using the scheme backed up their threats. Favourite methods included shotgun blasts to the face
and blowing up whole buildings. Many people believed the Black Hand was a single organization, but it was just a crude business plan used by many unconnected gangs. The greatest organized criminals in history were undoubtedly the politicians of the 18th and 19th century British Empire. No, I’m not kidding. The official plan of the government and the East India Company was to get as much addictive opium as possible into China. (This was known as free trade.) The Chinese Empire had made it illegal to sell opium since the 1700s, but that didn’t bother the British. They wanted to make money, period, so China was forced to open its doors to the world’s greatest drug dealers. They fought two wars in the mid1800s to force China to bow to the pressure of the drug sellers. England was the world’s first narco-terrorist state. Of course, the British and other westerners weren’t complete hypocrites. Opium was freely available in the west, too, including in children’s cough medication, until the early 20th century. As for future organized crime, I predict black market head-swap operations and chop shops for our flying cars can’t be far away. ◗ Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the Langley Advance.
hile some critics have already taken potshots at the new drunk driving laws and a court challenge is being contemplated, we say kudos to the provincial government for tightening the rules. The lives that have been damaged and, in some tragic cases, ended because someone got behind the wheel after drinking alcohol are too numerous to list. Families have lost loved ones killed by drunk drivers, and the relatives of impaired drivers have not been spared from the impacts. The ripple effect of drunk driving hurts everyone involved. The new rules have some pretty stiff penalties attached. Under the new rules, drivers who blow within a “warn” range between .05 and .08 will immediately be banned from driving for three days and be fined $200. A second instance will earn a seven-day ban and a $300 fine, and a third, a 30-day ban and $400 fine. Drivers who blow over .08 or refuse to provide a breath sample at the roadside will immediately be banned from driving for 90 days and be hit with a $500 fine. Their vehicles will be impounded for 90 days, and further, they could face criminal charges. Add in administrative penalties, towing and impoundment costs, and the price of an ignition interlock device, and you end up with a big number: all told, one fail on a roadside screening device will cost the driver roughly $3,750—and the driver could still face criminal charges. The president of the B.C. Civil Liberties Association has said drivers who are facing huge fines that they are unable to pay will be forced to drive illegally to get to work, and “then they’re committing more crime.” We’ve heard some pretty dumb arguments over the years . . . and that’s definitely one of them. Here’s our answer: don’t drink and drive; don’t even consider it, even if you can afford to pay $4,000.

Enforcement a bigger issue Editor: Re: New playground equipment at Fairfield Park (Strathcona elementary) and the slow burn. The weekend party boys/ girls burned down the previous equipment about a month ago. How very nice of our local officials to give them some more ($15$20,000 worth) to burn it down again. Jeez, I wonder why the kids don’t obey the no loitering after dusk sign. Enforcement? What a waste of taxpayers money—up in smoke. Ed MacDonald Chilliwack
Trustee’s time is valuable Editor: Having never written in response to letters to the editor before I was moved to do so when I see John-Henry Harter under attack. Sure, it is easy to say that he should continue to attend board meetings while turning over his stipend to the Chilliwack School Board but would anyone else even consider doing this? People seem to forget that he also has a family and other obligations. His time is valuable just like everyone else’s. Perhaps the critics should run for trustee and offer to perform the job for free. What is good for the goose should be good for the gander. D. Howden Chilliwack

What an absurd Call Blake statement 604-795-1792 Editor: Did the mayor really make such a stupid statement? Gaetz said the economic picture was very different at the time with the closure of CFB Chilliwack and two food processing plants. While she did not want to speculate on the thought processes at the time, she added the council of the day said, “In whatever way you can aid development in our community, do it.” Does this mean that it’s OK to do anything, even if it’s illegal and immoral? Better think before you make such an absurd comment. Typical political response. D. Saundry Chilliwack

was immediately impounded for seven days and you could also end up being impounded in a local gaol for the same seven days. The law was only in effect for a short time as too many judges, lawyers, some MLAs, and other dignitaries were finding themselves on the wrong side of the law.

Editor: The minister of state for mining, Randy Hawes, was quoted recently as saying that although he knows that the proposed gravel mine in the Chilliwack River Valley is in an area deemed as “environmentally sensitive,” he “is unable to do anything about it.” My question is, isn’t he the head of the ministry? Doesn’t he have the authority to put a stop on this proposal, at least until the FVRD and members of this community, and recreational visitors, have time to have their say? His statements are about as muddy as the water from this pit about to ruin the Chilliwack River. If Mr. Hawes is not in charge of his ministry, who is? With all the other values that the Chilliwack Valley watershed offers five million visitors a year, isn’t it at least valid to consider these other economic and social benefits? The excuse that we need to follow a Mines Act that was created in 1971 just shows how idiotic and fossilized this government’s vision is—not to mention the inconsistencies. In 2006, the Ministry of Sports, Arts, Culture and Recreation stopped all camping on the shores of Chilliwack River from the Vedder Bridge to Tamihi to help conserve habitat and water quality. Four years later, we are fighting to keep those same values in the forefront. If this proposal goes through, who cares about the impacts of a bit of camping and feces—a 50football-field-size gravel pit will overtake all in habitat degradation—not to mention the road impacts. Come on Mr. Hawes, take on some responsibility in

April real estate sales up but trouble looms BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
pril real estate in Chilliwack continued on a hot streak with 233 home sales compared to 188 in April 2009. That number is also up from 205 in March, 180 in February and 122 in January. Inventory remains strong as 548 new listings hit the market for a total of 1,694 active listings. 05119561
The highest number of home sales last month occurred in the $350,000 to $400,000 range (34), followed closely by those in the $300,000 to $350,999 range (33). There were 18 sales over the halfmillion dollar mark. The median price of a single family detached home in Chilliwack as of May 1 was $369,900. Despite a market that appears on the upswing, local realtor Stephen Mullock, who writes a blog on the
local market, points out that April’s numbers may be up, but they are still below the 10-year average. “[I]t is clear the Chilliwack real estate market still has a ways to go before we can say that it has fully recovered,” Mullock wrote. The industry is also wary of new lending rules that kicked in last month, as well as the imminent HST. Executive members of the Chilliwack and District Real Estate Board (CADREB) took concerns of
local realtors to provincial and federal politicians recently. CADREB president Kyle Hislop, government relations chair Mark Andersen and executive officer Steve Lerigny held meetings with MLAs Barry Penner and John Les on the effect of shelter taxes on the sale and affordability of homes, including the harmonized sales tax (HST) and the property transfer tax (PTT). Federally, the group met with

quiet for much of the game. Going into the bottom of the eighth tied 4-4, the Cougars were able to manufacture a run on a hit batter, a single, a balk and an RBI fielder’s choice by Dakota Bailey. The late game on Saturday was a 5-1 win for Chilliwack against Surrey. Chilliwack rode a three-run first inning on triples from Mike Rogers and Payton Nerbas, an RBI single from Derek Riediger and walks to Blake Peeling and Enns. They added a run in the second with back-to-back two-out hits from Bailey and Scott Fitzsimmons.
Chilliwack Bantam AA Cougars racked up three more wins The Bantam AA Cougars have been beating opponents easily this season until Wednesday evening’s game against the Abbotsford Angels at Fairfield Island Park. Some would say Abbotsford’s pitching dominated, others would say that Chilliwack’s hitters took the night off. Whatever side you are on, Chilliwack had to come from behind to beat the Angels 3-1, with Josh Enns hitting a clutch three-run inside-the-park home run in the bottom of the sixth. Adam Burchart

She’s in it for love M
ost people start volunteering with sport clubs and organizations because of their kids—not Laurie Bjorge. She has volunteered with the Chilliwack Minor Football Association (CMFA) for 15 years, and she has never had a kid in the program. It wasn’t her love of football that drew her either. Chilliwack-born and raised, Bjorge vaguely remembers her brothers playing at Sardis secondary back when the school had a football program, but that didn’t leave much of an impression. So why did Bjorge start dedicating so much time to local minor football? “I think it was for love,” she said with a laugh, remembering the games she has taped in the sleet and freezing rain with the club’s ancient and heavy video camera. “My football connection would be my husband Wayne.” When she met Wayne Bjorge in 1995, he was up to his neck in the
flourishing local football association he’d helped found with two friends (Keith Currie and Don Wiens) in 1991. He was coaching a midget-level team at the time, and Bjorge was brought on board as team manager back when that position was just taking shape. “It wasn’t too well organized back then,” she said with a laugh. The action on the field and the family atmosphere of the association soon drew her in. “I just liked being part of the team,” she said. “It was a lot of fun, and the kids were fun.” Bjorge is currenly the treasurer of the CMFA, but over the past 15 years she has held numerous positions including secretary, registrar and concession manager. Most years she takes on multiple roles. At the league level, she is the treasurer of the Valley Community Football League. Besides all the official titles, she also works tirelessly behind
the scenes at fundraisers and during game days, according to Wayne, who is now president of the CMFA. “Laurie has given of herself like no other volunteer I have ever seen,” he said. Although meeting the man of her dreams might have gotten her started, Bjorge long ago developed her own attachment the Chilliwack minor football family. And she’s definitely gained an appreciation for the game itself. “It’s so team oriented,” she said. “If you have one kid who’s just in it for himself, it doesn’t work.” After being with the organization for 15 years, one thing that thrills Bjorge is seeing players who went through the program in the early years come back to register their own kids. “We see that more and more now,” she said. “Their football experience was really good and positive, and they want their children to be a part of that. I really love to see that.”
Laurie Bjorge always gets a thrill when former players who went through the program come back to register their kids.
Swept up by the joy P
eter Lui’s first curling experience was enough to turn anyone off. When he took up the sport in 1988 at age 38, the Oakville Curling Club, where he got his start, didn’t offer beginner’s clinics, but paired beginners up with experienced curlers instead. “They were supposed to ease you in to the sport,” said Lui. Unfortunately, however, Lui and his wife, Maggie, were matched with a pair of cocky young kids who rolled their eyes every time Lui slipped and bruised his knee on the ice. Instead of giving up, though, he was determined to get good enough to beat them at their own game. “I made up my mind,” he said. “That was my motivation.” Three years later, when the Canadian Curling Association came out with a coaching program, Lui saw it as his chance to spare other beginners the same ordeal. He earned his Level One certi-
fication in 1991 and Level Two in 1993 and has coached curling ever since. He loves the game’s blend of competitiveness and friendliness. “We want to beat the opposition badly during the game,” he said, “and then after the game, win or lose, we will have a drink with the opposition.” Since retiring early from a stressful banking career and leaving bigcity life behind in 2000, Lui and his wife settled first in Castlegar and then in Chilliwack three years ago. With a grown son and daughter out of the house, and his career behind him, Lui now has plenty of time to indulge his two grand passions—curling and golf. He gets in about four rounds of golf a week whenever the weather allows. It’s an obsession that gripped him late in life, when he was almost 50. During his working years, he couldn’t see the appeal of chasing a “stupid white ball” around. “Now I understand why,” he said.
While Lui still curls competitively, it’s the kids in Chilliwack who really benefit from his old love of the sport. After only three years in the city, he’s already spent one year as head coach and co-ordinator of the junior program at the Chilliwack Curling Club. “The sport itself gives me a lot of joy,” he said, “so I just want to do my share in putting back into the sport.” Besides running weekly sessions that involve about 60 kids, ages six and up, every Monday evening, Lui coaches the club’s juvenile boys team and sits on the board as vicepresident. He also gives private lessons and donates the proceeds to the junior program to help cover travelling expenses for tournaments. The most rewarding part for Lui is watching struggling students, young and old, improve after he gives them advice, an opportunity he never had as a beginner. “When the student’s happy, I’m happy,” he said.
Peter Lui is making it easier for beginners to enjoy the great game of curling.

Keeping the game alive T
odd Morrison started playing fastpitch more than 20 years ago, and he doesn’t plan to quit any time soon. “I want to play as long as I can,” he said, “probably until they cart me off on a stretcher or have to wheel me out to home plate to catch.” Although Morrison has dedicated a good part of his adult life to playing and coaching fastpitch, his first sports as a kid growing up in Victoria were soccer and lacrosse. He might never have taken to the ball diamond if his knees had held out, but when he was eight years old, a doctor told him he would have to quit lacrosse if he didn’t want to get his knees drained every year. His switch to baseball the following year wasn’t a popular one with his soccer- and rugby-playing dad. “He actually called it a wimpy sport,” said Morrison with a laugh, “but after I started to play it, he became a really big fan.” Morrison switched to fastpitch
when he was 17. With shorter distances between the bases, and between the pitcher and home plate, Morrison was drawn to the game’s pace. “It’s just a quicker game,” he said. “I like the fact that you’re always in the game. It doesn’t matter what position you play.” He played in Victoria until he was 21, and then moved to Chilliwack hoping to join an Abbotsford senior A team—Fast as Flite. The team was one of several high-calibre teams he played for during his career, the most recent being the Vancouver Grey Sox, a team he also helped coach after he retired Morrison’s coaching career first started when he met his wife. She was playing ball with a local women’s team, the Valley Cats, and he was eager to pass on some of the know-how imparted to him by some of his great coaches. “For me it’s another way to be still in the game, involved with the game,” he said.
His time with the Valley Cats ended last year after 15 seasons and two provincial championship titles. Another example of Morrison putting his high-level fastpitch experience to work for Chilliwack happened two years ago when he brought the Grey Sox to Chilliwack to run a clinic for minor girls and boys. For Morrison, it’s all part of keeping the game he loves going in the city. When he moved here in 1990, softball was thriving with three divisions of men’s ball, two church divisions and an 11-team women’s league. Now there is only one men’s team and five women’s teams left, something Morrison chalks up to the growing profile of baseball in the area and the decision of the International Olympic Committee to drop softball from the Games. “It’s been such a good game,” he said. “I just hope all the coaches that are putting in their time and helping develop the game are rewarded at the end of the day with the game still being alive.”
Todd Morrison is doing all he can to keep the game of fastpitch alive and well here in the Fraser Valley.
Short track, long history
rowing up in southwestern Ontario, near Windsor, Ken St. Louis spent his fair share of time on skates. “There was a lot of ice there in the winter time,” he said with a laugh, remembering many hours spent skating on the open lakes back east. He’d seen all kinds of skating on TV too, but it wasn’t until 1992, when he was in his 30s, that he got his first live glimpse of short track. “I was just blow away by it,” he said. “I couldn’t believe the speed in such close proximity.” St. Louis was a fan of fast-paced sports. When he was in Grade 10, he traded in all the mainstream sports he’d been playing like baseball, football, basketball and hockey to commit five years to competitive European handball —a sport introduced into his school by a Danish teacher who’d grown up with the sport in his home country.
St. Louis’s introduction to short track came years later, after he had moved to Chilliwack and started a young family. He came to the rink because a friend had asked him to help out as a timer at the North American championships being held here that year. Impressed as he was by his first taste of the sport, he didn’t get involved with the Sardis Fliers Speed Skating Club until he signed up his son, Kelsey, for their learnto-skate program a few years later. Kelsey took to it right away, and it wasn’t long before his daughter Kayla was racing too. St. Louis and his wife Kandyce, in the meantime, fell in love with the family atmosphere at the rink and soon dove into active roles with the club. “It wasn’t a drop-and-go sport where you drop the kids and leave,” he said. “You stuck around
and were a part of it.” Of the 15 years he’s been with the club, St. Louis has spent close to 10 years as president and volunteered countless hours organizing the club’s annual relay challenge, timing at most of the competitions in B.C. and working on equipment. Watching his own kids race at the provincial and national levels gave St. Louis plenty of motivation to stay involved, but even now—after both Kelsey and Kayla have retired—he’s still behind the scenes as bingo co-ordinator, keeping the club’s main source of revenue flowing smoothly and the sport affordable so more kids can get involved. “When I see those young kids go out there for the first time, I just feel happy watching,” he said. “It’s that good feeling you get when you figure there’s a part of this that keeps happening because of your involvement.”

Better as a coach I
t probably wouldn’t work for everyone, but Glen Trojanoski’s secret to being a great baseball coach was being a lousy player. “I really understand kids who can’t play, so I can work with them,” he said. Trojanoski’s playing career lasted all of two years as a peewee playing in his home town, Richmond. He loved the sport, but it just didn’t come easy. “I was afraid of the ball,” he said. “I couldn’t catch.” He stopped playing after two years but stuck around the park to help out because his younger brother was starting on the team. He stuck around long enough to be taken on as an assistant coach, and when the head coach had a heart attack a couple of years later, Trojanoski took over the team, at age 16. Looking back on 44 years of coaching, Trojanoski laughs at how much times have changed. “It was the ‘60s and I had long hair; I played in a band,” he said.
what he calls his most difficult “There’s absolutely no way as a challenge—coaching his own son. parent today I would let that kid “It’s hard to be a coach and a coach my kid, even though I was a parent at the same time,” he said. good kid.” “If you’re sitting in the stands and Trojanoski coached peewee you’re watching your son play, you for about five more years before die and live out there with him.

A cosmic experience A
s a one-time hippy and latter-day renaissance man, sports haven’t been the be all and end all of Gary Wagner’s life. Ever since he started playing baseball at age eight, though, he’s always enjoyed the satisfaction of a game well played, and he’s ended up seeing plenty as a player, coach and official. To him, sports bring to mind the words of OliverWendell Holmes: “As life is action and passion, it is required of a man that he should share the passion and action of his time at peril of being judged not to have lived.” It’s a sentiment that rings as true for him today, playing with the Chilliwack Senior Slo-Pitch Association, as it did when he was a kid. “It’s the competition,” he said, “getting a base hit, making the play. You’re on third base and somebody cranks one down at you and you snap it up and throw him out at first—it’s the joy of that.” Most ofWagner’s sports experiences have revolved around base-

A nuts & bolts guy F
or Huskers equipment manager Jim Willix, the word “football” hasn’t always referred to the pointy kind he works with now. When he was a youngster in Belfast, Northern Ireland, a football was a soccer ball, and Willix knew how to use one. In his late teens he played on reserve teams for Ards and Glentoran, two clubs in the country’s professional league. He had to give it up in his early 20s because his job demanded a lot of the travel, but when he moved to Canada in 1966, he brought his love of soccer with him. After 12 years in Toronto, Willix settled in Richmond with his family and began coaching there. Counting other coaching stints in Aldergrove and Langley, Willix estimates his soccer coaching career in Canada spanned about 20 years. Only one of those was spent coaching his son, Andrew, before the youngster jumped ship for the gridiron at age 12.
But that’s no sad story for Willix. “I don’t care what sport they play as long as they’re playing sports,” he said, “and I will help them to play that sport.” Willix was a fan during his son’s high school years, and when Andrew joined the Richmond Raiders,Willix got involved on the board. Andrew graduated from the junior program, but bad knees ended his career after a couple of seasons at Taft College in California and a brief time training with the Ottawa Roughriders. Back in B.C., he was snapped up by former Huskers head coach Dave Haynes as a line coach. By the time Willix decided to retire in Chilliwack, Andrew had been coaching with the team for two years, and Willix was soon a fixture at the games. It wasn’t long before he was asked to join the board. He did—for a year—but says it just wasn’t exactly his kind of work. “I’d rather be up to my neck in bullets,” he said. In the bowels of Exhibition
Stadium he found work more to his liking—organizing, repairing, adjusting and cleaning the team’s equipment. “This kind of stuff suits me,” he said. “It’s hands on. I’m part janitor, part equipment manager. Anything to do with the dressing room or the storage places, that’s my domain.” When he started eight years ago, it was only to help out a bit, but a week into that season the regular equipment manager quit and handed him the keys. “That was the start,” he said. Since then, from about a month before the season starts until about a month after it ends, Willix has volunteered about 30 hours a week managing the Huskers’ equipment and dressing room. The team couldn’t run without him, but Willix says the job is a godsend, giving him something rewarding to do in his retirement. “You get a lot of satisfaction with these boys,” he said. “You’ve got 50 boys, and you can see them develop. It’s just satisfying.”
Sitting on the board of directors didn’t suit Jim Willix, he’s happier working as equipment manager for the team.
Caught coaching bug
hen Glenn Wilson immigrated to Canada as a teenager in 1979, he landed in Whitehorse, Yukon. It was a long way from the south of England where he grew up, but he remembers the first sight of soccer goalposts on a local field taking some of the sting out of the massive culture shock. “All we’d ever heard about before that in Canada was ice hockey,” he said. Until he immigrated at age 16, soccer had been a way of life. “After school, almost every day we’d cross into the school soccer field with our friends,” he said. “We’d throw a couple of sweaters down to make goal posts, and we’d play.” Luckily for Wilson, his family didn’t last long in the Yukon, and his parents settled in Chilliwack while he moved on to Coquitlam, playing in local leagues there. The soccer was still fairly primitive then, according to Wilson, but the original North American Soccer League (NASL) and the Vancouver
Whitecaps were still going strong. He spent a short time training with the team’s reserve/youth squad, but league regulations designated him as a European player, effectively ending his chances. “If they only had room for six European players on their roster, they were going to make sure that they were professionals, not some 17-year-old kid,” he said. Wilson’s passion for playing was shouldered aside by the coaching bug in his 30s. It started as a favour in 1991 when he took on a North Delta under-21 team that had lost its coach halfway through the season. “I got a buzz from it right away,” he said. Almost two decades later, he’s still hooked. Wilson settled in Chilliwack with his young family in 1994 and there is rarely a day he is not on the field. He coached three teams this year: a women’s U-21 Pacific Coast Soccer League (PCSL) team, a metro level girls team and a U-21 men’s team.
He has also spent five years as an age group instructor for Chilliwack FC’s youth academy and has coordinated the club’s 1,100-player spring league for three years. As owner of SoccerPlus, soccer is Wilson’s day job too. He thrives on being busy, he said, but what really keeps him going is working with enthusiastic kids who are willing to learn. “I find that once you get on the soccer field, everything else just disappears,” he said. “All the other concerns of the day disappear, and you’re just working with a bunch of kids.” Over the years, two of those kids have been his own—Adam, 20, and Kirsten, 18—both of whom he’ll be coaching again this year. Wilson has seen a lot of changes in local soccer and as Chilliwack grows, he expects soccer to keep growing right along with it. As it does, chances are he’ll have a hand in it one way or another. “It’s in my blood I suppose you could say,” he said. “I can’t imagine not doing it.”
Glenn Wilson rarely has a day when he’s not on a soccer field.
