Upfront Briefly Two robberies A Chilliwack man faces charges in connection to two credit union robberies last week. Dwayne Kevin Tomren, 45, of Chilliwack, has been charged with two counts of robbery. He was also wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for breach of parole. Last Thursday, a man entered the VanCity credit union on Luckakuck Way, and passed a note demanding money to a teller. The man left the scene on foot. Shortly thereafter, a taxi company called police to tell them they had drove a man who fit the suspect description to the Chilliwack Motor Inn. “Had we not received the call from the taxi service, he may still be at large,” said RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck. Police believe Tomren is responsible for both the VanCity theft and the robbery of an Envision Credit Union the previous day.

1998 Won’t stop mining
The chief of the Cheam First Nation vowed to carry on mining gravel despite warnings that DFO might lay further charges. Chief June Quipp said the local band would continue excavating from the Fraser River at the Cheam reserve. DFO had halted all Fraser gravel digging, saying the process threatens fish habitat. DFO laid 11 charges against Quipp and Grand Chief Sam Douglas under Section 35 of the Fisheries Act.

Joel Korytko, now a part-time YMCA employee and full-time student, is a graduate of the Y’s Youth Leadership Program. Korytko, for example, planned numerous battle-of-the-band events and organized fundraising carwashes. By the time he graduated from the program he was making presentations to rooms full of adults about the YMCA’s theory of personal assets. YMCA manager Shari West said the program gives many kids opportunities they wouldn’t otherwise have. “Often these kids want to be part of the leadership groups in schools and there’s not enough space.” She added that it is rewarding to watch young people progress through the program and put the skills they have learned to use. “I’ve seen several kids who have graduated the program, graduated high school and come back.”
Korytko is one of those students. He said putting teenagers in positions of responsibility is important, and gives youths both the tools to lead and the self-belief needed to make a difference. “It actually shows them that they can do it,” he said. “I never had to make a presentation, I never had to plan an event, [before the program] so how could I know I could do it?” Students were nominated for the Abundant Asset awards by a teacher and notified in June. They then receive a year-long membership that entitles them to free membership and participation in the Youth Leadership program. The program is also open to other YMCA youth members.

YMCA program shows them how to lead
he word leadership gets thrown around a lot in middle and high schools. Parents, teachers, community leaders all hope to turn impressionable teenagers into good-hearted leaders rather than obedient followers. They want, quite simply, to mould young boys and girls into adults like Joel Korytko. Korytko is a graduate of the Youth Leadership Development program run by the YMCA, which has recently awarded its Abundant Asset awards to dozens of Chilliwack students who will receive free club memberships and a chance to join the long-running program. Since joining the program at age 13, the program has had a dramatic effect on Korytko’s life and his role in the community. Now a part-time camp director, YMCA swim instructor, jack-of-alltrades and full-time student, Korytko says the program gave him the tools he needs to not only succeed as an individual, but to contribute to the wider world. Simply, it taught him to lead. “The program made me into more of a community-focused person,” said Korytko. The leadership program doesn’t just tell youth to lead, he says. Rather, it shows them how to do so, gives them the tools and then throws them in over their heads and lets the young leaders sink or swim. Leadership students can assist in swim and fitness classes and, eventually, learn to take a leading role in the classes. Younger kids receive babysitter training while older youths learn CPR and first aid. Participants take part in two hours of classroom activity a week, and are encouraged to go beyond that and organize their own events.

h e Cu l t u s L a k e Pa r k Board has appointed a staff member to deal with bylaw transgressions in the park. Every year park patrol deals with hundreds of calls in the business district, residential areas and in Sunnyside Campground, and so staff member Kelsey Paul has been assigned the task of dealing with bylaw issues in the park, according to a press release issued Friday. Paul will target parking, alcohol being consumed in public, and animal control in the business and residential areas. Park patrol reminds visitors and residents to Cultus Lake to park in designated areas provided for the activity that brings them to Cultus. There is no public parking in the residential areas and the plaza is for customer parking only. Visitors are asked to use the two pay-parking lots to avoid tickets or being towed. The $5 charge for the two parking lots is used to partially offset the costs of maintaining public areas. Dog owners are asked to keep dogs on-leash, off the wharves and beaches, and to pick up after pets. The park board reminds residents there is a public dog swim area at the end of Sunnyside Boulevard and an off-leash park behind the plaza. The RCMP will work closely with park patrol and bylaw enforcement to ensure that there is no consumption of alcohol in the public areas. Paul will be responsible for all bylaw related concerns and follow-up and can be reached from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday at 604-8454018.

Rocky road ahead BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
esidents who have complained this year about Fraser River gravel trucks and the damage they cause on Chilliwack roads are in for more next year. The provincial government wants to remove up to 230,000 cubic metres of gravel from local bars in the Fraser River and city council agreed to support the province’s 2011 gravel management program at the July 5 meeting. Long a controversial subject, gravel is of great value to the construction industry yet the provincial government and the city claim gravel removal is done for flood protection only. Some, including a hydraulic consultant hired by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, have said gravel removal has trivial impact on river levels. But for years other biologists and environmental organizations have criticized the gravel removals as nothing but a “gravel grab,” claiming that fish spawning grounds are destroyed. Coun. Diane Janzen was the lone voice of opposition to a city of Chilliwack staff recommendation Monday to
support the province’s gravel removal plans for 2011 from the Fraser River in locations in Chilliwack. Janzen pointed to an auditor general report from 2009 that upheld concerns from conservation groups who say gravel removal has killed millions of juvenile pink salmon and had done little to reduce flood risk. “[I] spent some time on the auditor general’s report that absolutely blasted the gravel removal program for not holding up its end of the deal,” she said. “What is the difference between how they are managing the fisheries this year and how they plan next year?” Assistant manager of environmental services Tara Friesen, who presented the staff report, didn’t have an answer and suggested Janzen’s question was for Emergency Management B.C. (EMBC). As part of her presentation, Friesen called gravel “management . . . a key component of flood protection on the Fraser River.” EMBC is required to monitor the gravel removals, and this year a white sturgeon sampling program was added as a new requirement at a cost of $275,000. Friesen said that during the two previous gravel removal programs, city roads suffered “considerable damage,” beyond EMBC’s budget to cover road repairs. The city levies a 50-cent-per-cubic metre fee on gravel operators but this doesn’t cover the total cost of damage. Despite this cost to the city, Friesen’s
BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
Coun. Diane Janzen report concluded that failure to remove the gravel would require future dike upgrades, which would cost more than road repairs. Council agreed to support the province’s 2011 plan under three conditions: that the operator or the province work with city to use routes that minimize damage, and that only highwaylegal trucks be used on roads. Coun. Pat Clark proposed the third condition to send a report to EMBC after the 2011 gravel removals on the damage caused to local roads. Janzen opposed the amendment and the council move to support the gravel program because of uncertainty over environmental impacts, but also because of the lack of action to deal with damage to roads. “ When I read words like ‘work towards a long-term solution’ it makes me think we are not prepared to do a thing,” she said.
ravel removal operations have wrapped up for the season on the Fraser River, but on the Vedder River removals are set to begin July 15. At its last meeting, Chilliwack city council awarded contracts to Universal Contracting to remove 36,700 cubic metres of gravel from two cityowned bars in the Vedder River for flood protection purposes. There is a total of 138,400 c u b i c m e t re s o f g r a v e l proposed to be removed from eight sites in the Vedder River and Vedder Canal at sites owned by Chilliwack, Abbotsford and on Crown land this year between July 15 and Sept. 15. In addition to the two contracts awarded at council, a further 21,700 of cubic metres will be removed from Community Bar, which is on city land. Because of required travel on portions of the west dike being upgraded in the
summer, the contract here was negotiated directly with the contractor at a price of $2 per cubic metre and is intended to be used for dike upgrades. Staff told council there was only one response to the tender to remove gravel from the other two sites this year. Universal Contracting will pay 30 cents per cubic metre for gravel from Greendale Bar and 65 cents per cubic metre for Yarrow Bar. “The local gravel supply currently exceeds demand and therefore interest in the Vedder River material was very low,” the staff report said. The gravel removals in the Vedder River are done every even-numbered year, rather than every year, to reduce potential impacts to pink salmon. A t o n e C r ow n s i t e a t Railway Bar, just east of the Southern Rail bridge, pedestrian and vehicle access along the Rotary Trail will be affected. The public will be notified of any temporary access restrictions, according to the staff report.

We rank near bottom
Health region falls well short when it comes to quality of care and access BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
he health region that includes Chilliwack and Abbotsford was ranked near the bottom of a national study from the University of Regina. Dr. Wallace Lockhart used statistics ranking quality of care, access to services and patient satisfaction to analyze 45 health regions throughout Canada. He used health region report cards and, according to the university website, “rankings are based on 19 comparable performance indicators in the categories of quality, access and patient satisfaction.” In regions with more than 200,000 people, Fraser East, which includes Chilliwack and
Abbotsford, was ranked 28th out of 30. But that wasn’t the worst in B.C. Fraser North, which includes Burnaby and New Westminster, was ranked 30th. Vancouver was ranked 27th. Lockhart, a University of Regina accounting professor at the Paul J. Hill School of Business, used data from the 2010 Health Indicators Report (Canadian Institute for Health Information), the 2008 Canadian Community Health Survey (Statistics Canada), and Statistics Canada’s Hospital Standardized Mortality Ratio. He said there are significant differences in health care across the country. “No one region does terrible at everything or is the best at everything,” said Lockhart. To analyze quality of care, Lockhart looked at 10 measurements, including hysterectomy re-admission rates and in-hospital hip fractures. He took six measurements to analyze access to services, including waiting times for people with broken hips or needing knee replacements. And Lockhart looked at three measurements of patient satisfaction, including physician care and hospital care. - with files from Canwest News Service
Still looking for pub robber
man who held up the Cultus Lake Pub Friday is still at large despite the efforts of police dog units and more than a dozen officers. A man armed with a gun entered the pub just before noon and demanded money, according to Mounties. The store owner ran out the back of the store and the suspect also fled the scene, according to the RCMP press release. Police did not say if anything was stolen. Police dogs were called to the scene and followed a short track that ended at Karen
Drive. “It’s very possible that the suspect may have then fled the area on a bike or in a vehicle which is why the track came to such an abrupt end,” said RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck. Roadblocks were created at the entrance of Columbia Valley Road but the suspect was not found. The suspect is described as between five-foot-seven and five-foot-10, with a medium build. He wore a black T-shirt with a white logo in the centre, along with white pants and a black baseball cap with a desert storm printed on it.

The trio enjoyed a night’s stay “on the house” through the Chilliwack Society for Community Living’s Respitality program. community,” he said, “especially when you think about some of the challenges these families have in terms of needing a break.” Those challenges aren’t limited to parents. Because caring for a child or adult with developmental disabilities is often all consuming, parents struggle to find extra energy and time to invest in their other children.
“It’s taken its toll on them,” said mother of three Donna Turenne of her 16-year-old daughter Caslyn and 13-year-old son Landon. Turenne’s oldest daughter, Camille, 18, has a severe type of epilepsy accompanied by developmental disabilities. When she was younger, frequent daily seizures threatened her life and created a lot of stress in the family.
Caslyn still remembers the feeling of separation at age three when her mom had to stay in the hospital with Camille for a month and a half. Like a lot of kids, she went through a resentful stage in her early teens, but over time she and her brother have developed a maturity and empathy beyond their years. “They have a different outlook on life,” said Turenne. Last week, thanks to Respitality, Turenne got to lavish some undivided attention on her daughter for her 16th birthday by taking her and a friend for a night at the Harrison Hot Springs Resort. “It’s a treat getting out and being able to spend this time,” said Turenne. Marriage is another relationship that tends to take a backseat in families of children and adults with developmental disabilities. Add in the stress and anxiety over health complications that often accompany developmental disabilities, and it’s a strain many relationships don’t survive. “They say it either makes or breaks a marriage having a child with a disability, and unfortunately it was the breaker,” said Christine Cookson of her own experience after her youngest daughter Mia was born with Jacobson’s Syndrome, a genetic disorder a little like Down Syndrome. A single mother of four who works full time, Cookson has had to learn—with some help from counsellors—how important it is to take care of herself as well as her children. “If you don’t, you’re no good to anybody,” she said. For her, Respitality was an opportunity to put that wisdom in to practice, and in February, she booked a night off with her significant other at Rowena’s Inn on the River. “It was quiet and peaceful,” she said. “It was wonderful.” ◗ For more information about the Respitality program, contact Jennifer Kennedy at 604-393-3211 or Karen Pedersen at 604-393-3213.

Buyer’s market for housing Bullets riddle
BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
eal estate sales are down and housing starts are up, putting Chilliwack squarely in a buyer’s market. There were 151 single family homes sold in June with an average sale price of $362,000, down from 171 in May and 165 in June 2009. Total residential sales for June dropped to 224 from May’s 248 home sales. Total sale are down from a year ago, when 250 were sold in June 2009, the first month of recovery after the economic downturn. While the implementation of the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) has little
effect in Chilliwack, the Chilliwack a n d Di s t r i c t Re a l E s t a t e Bo a rd (CADREB) has blamed lower sales on HST uncertainty. “The truth is, as the majority of homes for sale in Chilliwack and area are under the HST threshold, it only minimally affects the price, if at all,” said CADREB president Kyle Hislop. HST is only applied to new homes over $525,000. The average price of a home in Chilliwack dropped from $352,000 to $344,000, according to Hislop. Sales typically slow down in summer and despite new lending rules that may keep some first-time homebuyers out of the market, CADREB says the market is good for buying.
“Combined with continued low interest rates, it is an excellent time to shop for a first home, a move-up or an investment property,” Hislop said in a press release. The B.C. Real Estate Association’s (BCREA) second quarter housing forecast suggests an improving economy may counter-balance some of the erosion in affordability caused by higher mortgage interest rates and tighter lending rules. The BCREA also suggests stronger economic and employment growth in 2011 will bolster housing demand and push home sales higher. BCREA predicts a 2.9-per-cent increase in sales for 2010 to 2,340 total sales up from 2,274 in 2009.
olice are investigating at least a dozen shots fired at a Chilliwack apartment early Monday morning. RCMP shut down Edwards Street between Kipp and Spadina avenues for several hours Monday as they investigated the shooting, which left at least a dozen bullet holes in the balcony window of a third-floor apartment in the 9300 block of Edwards Street. Police received a 911 call
of shots fired about 4:30 a.m., according to RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck. No one was injured, she said. While police are releasing little information and won’t say exactly how many shots were fired or with what type of gun, Wolbeck did say that the residents of the unit targeted were known to police. “We don’t believe this to be a random act, we believe that it was targeted,” she said. No arrests have yet been made.

Putting down their heavy load
eing a stay-at-home mom of young children is a lowego job. It’s not something a lot of moms talk about—they’re usually drowned out by the oohs and aahs of people telling them what a great thing motherhood is, how special, how wonderful. It’s hard to get a word in edgewise about what it feels like to be suddenly thrust into a role where someone else’s needs come before your own 24/7. It would be one thing if infants and toddlers expressed their gratitude, but mothers have to teach them that too. If they want something—“Use your words, sweetie.” When they get something— “What do you say, honey?” Day in and day out, stay-athome mothers and young children grind away at one another. In a few years, if the mom is still standing, the child will launch into the world a decent human being who knows how to say “please” and “thank you.” The mom, for her part, emerges from the experience forever changed, knowing what it means to love another human being and fully expecting nothing in return.
JustA Thought It’s ennobling, it’s cosmic, but it’s not easy. For mothers of kids with developmental disabilities, this all seems doubly true. They, however, are caught between a rock and a hard place when it comes to making the rest of us understand. On the one hand, if they are completely honest about how difficult it is to care for a child (or adult) with developmental disabilities—how disruptive to “normal” family life, how exhausting, how isolating, how taxing to the self esteem—the rest of us might only be able to see how hard and burdensome their lives are and not the deeper rewards. On the other hand, if they don’t talk about the challenges of caring for a child with developmental disabilities, they become more and more isolated. Talking to some of these moms
about the Chilliwack Society for Community Living’s Respitality program, it seems to me most of them opt for isolation because it’s just too hard to explain their complicated lives to the uninitiated. (See story pg. 6.) Without a bit of probing, they are reluctant to talk about being sleep-deprived, about the toll their caregiving duties take on their relationships with their other children or about how they rarely entertain at home or go out. One mom told me she didn’t want to give the impression her daughter with developmental disabilities was a burden to her, that her daughter often reminds her about what life is really all about. I think most mothers can relate to that—all kids remind us of what life is really all about. But, frankly, I also think it’s OK for moms, whether their kids have disabilities or not, to acknowledge the load they carry and be allowed to put it down once in a while. So I say kudos to the hotels that have stepped forward through the Respitality program to provide a free night’s getaway for families of kids with disabilities.
hile the high number of new doctors in the province is refreshing news, there’s still more that needs to be done to address the critical shortage of physicians. The B.C. Medical Association states there are 250,000 British Columbians that do not have a family doctor. That’s frightening. And to make matters worse, many doctors are within five years of retiring, so the demand will increase unless we do something fast. The association says that to maintain the status quo we need 400 new doctors each year, yet we only graduate 256 new medical students annually. Meanwhile, hundreds of foreign-trained doctors are not being used because they have to redo their residencies since their credentials aren’t recognized here. The number of residency positions for them at St. Paul’s Hospital is a meagre 18. In 2009, B.C. had 488 new doctors— great news—and the jump was largely because the provincial government had enough foresight to increase the number of medical seats over the past few years. More seats means more doctors graduating. But adding more seats is a costly endeavour, and it takes several years before those students are ready to practise. B.C. has actively recruited doctors from other countries, the U.S and the U.K. for example, because it’s cheaper than paying for more medical seats. Ideally, we should be raising our own doctors in B.C. and doing more to get the foreign-trained doctors who are already here into our system. And while expanding the number of medical seats further may be costly now, the long-term benefits include better health care for British Columbians, a crop of physicians more likely to stay here and less reliance on recruiting from abroad when many countries are struggling with their own doctor shortages.

Time to put pressure on officials
Olsen trying to build red cred Editor: Wow, that was an amazing column promoting the idea that we should have to beg the government for everything. A week ago the Times promoted gun prohibitionism too. It sounds like Mr. Olsen is trying to build his red cred with something straight out of poli sci and criminology from Ryerson and SFU. I suggest that the Times do an experiment and operate for a month under the same kind of rules as the gun laws. I think a better crime fighting idea would be to round up all those 850 known gang members in the valley mentioned in the news recently.
Best view often from high horse Editor: In response to Sylvia Commerford’s comments (Times, July 9)on the language issue. The neat thing about being on a high horse Sylvia is that you tend to get a broader view of the world or, in this case, of the country. Sylvia maintains that if the courts in Quebec aren’t bilingual why should Canadian courts be? A simple answer might be because we are a bilingual nation. What Sylvia has forgotten is that the court system she is referring to is provincial and the Surêté de Quebec is a provincial police force. Quebec is a French province, not a bilingual one. I would not expect the provincial courthouse in Chilliwack to provide services in French as B.C. is an English province, nor would I expect Barry Penner or John Les to be fluent in French. The original premise of my argument (Times, July 6) was that it was a federal member of Parliament’s office which had sent out a question regarding the validity of
requiring Canada’s (federal) Supreme Court justices to be bilingual. In this case, when a federal office queries the necessity of conforming to the country’s bilingual status, it is not a question of tit for tat between two disparate provincial institutions. Sylvia, get a wider scope on the world and join me for a ride. Kirsten Hauge Chilliwack
A reluctant multiculturalist Editor: Never realized that Vancouver had a large French speaking population. Chinese, German, English . . . but French? Perhaps it’s the Vancouver south of the border. Really unfortunate we can’t roll back the time to the days of Wilfred Laurier, who said, “we have room for but one flag, the Canadian flag. We have room for but one language, the English language and one loyalty, loyalty to the Canadian people.” I realize, of course, we have matured since then in compassion, intelligence, etc. all rolled into the all-encompassing multiculturalism. How fortunate indeed. What more can be said? Solms Coutinho Chilliwack
Opening Party was fantastic Editor: What a time was had by all. Downtown Chilliwack’s Party in the Park on Friday evenings is truly a family affair—little ones dancing and everyone smiling, you see people you haven’t seen in years. There’s something for all. Activities for the kids, lots of giveaways (hint: brush up on your Bruins trivia) and a proper night market with a great selection of yummy food and cool stuff. Seasoned professional musician and my long-time friend Trevor McDonald is sorting the entertainment and keeping the evenings on schedule. I only caught the
last three bands and everyone raved about the ones I missed. I won’t be late next week. I’m so glad I finally got the opportunity to hear Pardon My Striptease. They were fantastic. Loved seeing former mayor Clint Hames playing roadie. The closing act was local party band Full Tilt who had the crowd up and rockin’ right to the end at 10 p.m. The fun didn’t end with great restaurants just steps away (T.G.I.F. – Thank Gringos It’s Friday). I hope the Rotarians are pleased. This wonderful event couldn’t be happening without their invaluable contribution of the park itself. See y’all downtown. Wendy Power Chilliwack
Don’t poison Mother Earth Editor: The possibility of a wasteto-energy (WTE) plant being built in Gold River for Metro Vancouver to ship its garbage to is being considered, providing jobs and tax revenue locally as an incentive. I read that Covanta has offered to build a WTE plant free which should be a clue that there is more to WTE than meets the eye. While the air pollutants are a major concern there is still not much said about the ash residue which is said to be between 10 and 30 per cent. To give you an idea of what that would look like: If Covanta should choose to build a plant capable of processing 40,000 tons per year the ash residue would be enough to cover over 1,000 acres a foot deep over a 25-year contract at 30 per cent residue. In some European countries that ash is considered hazardous waste and has to be landfilled accordingly. If we divert 70 per cent through reduce re use and recycle the 30 per cent residue would not be hazardous waste. Should a WTE plant qualify as an Independent Power Producer (IPP) under the Liberals green power plan I would assume that if (due to environmental concerns) the plant was ordered closed some authority would be expected to compensate Covanta for the cost of their plant and the loss of income from the power it would have produced by the end of its contract. While humans may think that they come from their mother’s womb we are all products of Mother Earth. How long do you think we can get away with poisoning our mother? Gary Huntbatch Abbotsford

The hard working nice guy.
Editor: Regarding the remarks of Mayor Sharon Gaetz and Coun. Diane Janzen and those of previous mayors and councils about transit: They are very parochial and short-sighted. They do not see the big valley picture (which includes Abbotsford, Langley and a large portion of Surrey) that has a need of a future light rail service for the south side our Fraser Valley. Mayor and council could and should show more positives than negatives to the light rail concept for Chilliwack plus the other areas to be involved. Yes, it’s not part of the city of Chilliwack’s mandate. Yes, Chilliwack doesn’t have money for light transit. Yes, the provincial and federal governments are broke. Yes, demographics indicate that there aren’t the numbers to support a transit system today. So what? All that does not mean that planning for for a light rail system should be ignored or delayed. Cooperation with all parties involved should agree on the need and the basic system but not get boggeddown with the details for now. It’s too early for that. Promote the need of a light rail system for the Fraser Valley. Get with it. Advise the approximately two million souls west of us who and where we are and the need for valley public transportation that doesn’t exist today. Apply pressure on the public and officials to gain their approval to the need and to the system proposed. On Oct. 3, 1910 the Vancouver to Chilliwack Interurban arrived—one hundred years ago this October. Who is doing anything about that? Do not wait until Oct.1 to wake up. Fred Lawrence Chilliwack

hilliwack’s Sardis Slammers Squirt C fastpitch team claimed second place in the province Sunday at the Provincial Championships in Vernon. The Slammers fell 18-3 in the final to the Cloverdale Tsunami after a scorching hot weekend in the Okanagan. The Slammers rolled through the round robin, winning all four games, and also triumphed in their first two playoff games. A loss forced the Slammers to play—and win— a semifinal to earn a berth in the final.
There, the Slammers ran into a red-hot Cloverdale pitcher. “We probably had the best team there,” said Slammers coach Mo Fournier on Monday. “We just ran out of gas.” Playing in a stifling heat that reached towards the 40C mark, the Slammers represented Chilliwack well, said Fournier. “They all played really, really well.” The provincials consisted of 16 teams of girls aged 10, 11 and 12 from across B.C.

Focus on players Fielding a winning team means making players number one priority for Huskers BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
eversing a legacy of losing won’t be easy, but new Chilliwack Huskers coach Luke Acheson is confident that a focus on players will help turn around a program that has made the B.C. Football Conference playoffs just once in the last seven years. The Huskers wrapped up training camp Sunday and will spend this week gearing up for an exhibition game on Saturday against the Surrey Rams (7 p.m., Exhibition Field). This will be Acheson’s first game at the helm of the Huskers; he served as offensive line co-ordinator last year before taking over co-coaching duties when then-head coach Howie Zaron resigned with three games left in the year. “I’m trying to do just about everything different,” Acheson told the Times. “I think from last year you have to do a lot of things differently.” Tyler Olsen/TIMES
The Huskers wrapped up their main training camp Sunday. The team plays a home exhibition game on Saturday and the season starts July 24.
On the field and off, Acheson said the goal is to key on players and make them feel at home. “It’s all about caring for the athletes and putting the athletes first,” he said. That means providing top-notch coaching, personal support and, crucially, by being comfortable with having players move on to the college ranks. Acheson said it’s important that recruits see the Huskers as a stepping stone towards college, even if that means having players leave before their BCFC eligibility ends. “It’s a bit of a two-sided coin,” he said. “By trying to push guys onto university you really can only have an athlete playing for two years . . . so he can’t play for you until he’s 22. Usually you only get that athlete until he’s 20. But getting the message out there that we really care for our kids and that we’re doing what’s best for athletes, that’s going to bring some of the better athletes here. “We’re going to have a higher turnover but I think we’ll have more of the better athletes or highly-touted prospects come here.” On the field, the club is using a new offensive scheme aimed at simplifying playcalling. Off the field, the non-profit organization has recruited a new squad of volunteers who hope to make the players feel comfortable in Chilliwack and find them part-time jobs. The aim is to run the program partly like a business, and partly like a good university program. Already, Acheson is happy with this year’s class of recruits and he says the team has been building chemistry ever since the club’s spring camp. See HUSKERS, Page 13

Jock scraps Mosquitoes split games The Chilliwack Mosquito A Cougars split the first two games of their summer season last week, losing in Abbostford on Wednesday and winning in Cloverdale the following evening. The Cougars were chased from the park by the Angels in a 14-4 mercy that took only four innings. The Cats landed on their feet at Coverdale Park on Thursday, surprising the Spurs 20-12 in a three-hour epic tilt. Every player scored for Chilliwack with Mike Fitzsimmons and Dylan Ohlsen leading the way with three doubles and four RBIs, and a triple and three RBIs respectively. Defensively, the highlight of the night was a spectacular 6-3-5 double play
HUSKERS, from page 11 “They’re competing hard,” he said. “We’re starting to come together as a team.” He said he is confident that his squad can surprise some teams that have taken wins against the Huskers for granted in the past. “Our goal is to surprise people. Nobody
Peewee Cougars open strong The Chilliwack Cougars Peewee A squad opened up its summer season with a thrashing of Newton at home. Four and a half innings was all it took as the cats unleashed 17 runs against a stunned opponent. Ciaran Ritter pitched the first three innings giving up only two runs on three hits and striking out six. Scotty Winger made short work of Newton, closing them out in two innings, giving up one run while striking out four. Both pitchers picked off a runner. The catching duties fell on the shoulders of Elias Enneddam and Reece Howden, both of whom did a great job behind the dish and shared four hits between them. Alex Leiper and Jake Stelting contributed two hits a piece, Ritter and Tanner Ohlsen had three hits each.
Confident squad is counting on the Chilliwack Huskers on doing anything,” he said. “Our goal is to work hard everyday, get better everyday and, by the end of the season, we’ll be where we need to be.”

He lived a very full and happy life starting as a strapping farm boy, the youngest of ﬁve strong Norwegian Canadian brothers on the family homestead in Saskatchewan. He moved to B.C. with his ﬁrst wife Agnes and his four small children in 1964. He was a skilled jack of all trades and a master carpenter. He was also a very accomplished multi-instrumental musician. He sang and played in bands from the early age of 12 until the age of 83. He was a 2005 Guinness World Record holder for participating in a 665 pce. accordion orchestra. He even managed to cut three CDs after turning 80 years old. He lived in Chilliwack with his second wife Arlene from their marriage in 1978 until her death in 2000, when he moved to Westbank, B.C. He was pre-deceased by his mother Anna and father Anton, his wives Agnes and Arlene, his brothers Andy, Ole and Edwin, and grandson Robbie. Gib will be lovingly remembered by his brothers Tom and Ernie, his son Duane (Sue), and daughters Shelly, Shauna (Ron), Donna (Larry), and step-daughter Kelly. Grandchildren Devon, Nicole, Ryan, Jesse, Tanis, Chelsea, Clayton, Derek, Will, Rob, Tania and Niki, and blessed with 6 great-grandchildren and countless other loving relatives, friends, and bandmates. A celebration of his life will take place on Sat July 31, 2010 in Kelowna. Please call daughter Shelly at 250-863-1354 to get details for attendance.
