Black colours city as biz savvy Liberal cabinet minister says we’re doing things right locally BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
group of Chilliwack entrep re n e u r s g o t t o b e n d the ear of the minister in charge of small business on Friday and topics ran the gamut
from access to training to the HST. Iain Black, the minister of small business, technology and economic development, met with business owners at the Coast Hotel as part of the ongoing small business roundtable meetings the ministry has held across the province since
2005. This was the first visit of the roundtable to Chilliwack and Black said he enjoyed the clarity he sees from Fraser Valley small business owners. “If you’re trying to really succinctly define what the government’s role is in the small business community: to equip them with some tools, assist them in being successful and to get out of the way . . . there are very few places in the

province where that is as clearly and decisively communicated as in Chilliwack,” Black said. Chamber of Commerce president Jason Lum said the visit was a good opportunity “to speak direct-
ly and cordially to the people in charge.” As a small business owner himself, Lum said one topic of concern is access to grants for training, which are available to employees but not the owners themselves. “There are grants up to $5,000 to train employees even though a lot of small business owners are employees,” he told the Times.

olice have arrested three people and recovered two of the dozen-plus dirt bikes stolen last week. The bikes, along with a trailer and a white E450 Ford utility truck, were stolen last Thursday morning, just hours before they were to be used in a dirt bike camp for kids as young as six years old. The trailer was found Thursday morning but the bikes were gone. Police recovered two of the bikes, along with some of the stolen equipment, on Friday and arrested three people. All three have since been charged with possession of stolen property. The truck, which police say is adorned with Honda stickers, and 15 more dirt bikes are still at large. “We’re still investigating and we still welcome any more information the public may have,” said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Lea-Anne Dunlop.

Bailey replaces George as Aitchelitz chief BY JENNIFER SALTMAN The Province
he hereditary chief of the Aitchelitz First Nation has stepped down after pleading guilty last week to sexual interference. Jimmy George, who became chief in 1997, has been replaced by Angie Bailey.
George was charged with one count of sexual interference of a person under 16 in connection with an incident that occurred between March 1 and 24. When the charges became public in June, the Sto:lo Nation Society suspended George from his position on the board of directors. Society president Joe Hall said in an e-mail
that George has not been reinstated. This is not the first time George had trouble with the law. In 2006, he stepped down as head of the society that runs Xyolhemeylh Child and Family Services, which provides child protection to native bands, after it came to light that he was sentenced to three years in jail for sexual assaults on one or more
Chilliwack girls in the 1980s. George is scheduled to appear next in Chilliwack Provincial Court for sentencing on Sept. 17.

Change not wanted
esidents of Fraser Valley Regional District’s Area E want to see natural areas protected and little change in their communities, according to a survey mailed to residents. The survey will be used to provide guidance to FVRD staff and officials as they craft an updated version of Area E’s Official Community Plan (OCP). But the survey’s effectiveness may be limited by how few residents chose to respond to it. Of 1,364 surveys mailed, just 57—a measly four per cent—were returned. Area E director Dave Lamson said the survey may have gotten lost in the plethora of junk mail most people receive. That view is lent credence by the fact that more people attended open houses on the OCP than responded to the survey. Lamson, though, was pleased with the responses of those people who did take the survey. Of those in the Cultus Lake, Lindell Beach and Columbia Valley area, half said they wanted to see very little change, while 34 per cent said they wanted moderate change. In the Chilliwack River Valley, residents wanted even less change. Sixty-two per cent of people wanted very little change, while 27 per

cent wanted no change at all. “That’s basically saying they don’t want a lot of development, they don’t want a lot of subdivisions,” said Lamson. In the Chilliwack River Valley, the survey showed that residents are extremely concerned about the natural environment and, particularly, fish and wildlife populations. Four-fifths of respondents said that declining fish and wildlife populations were the top issue in the valley. An overwhelming 94 per cent said “protecting fish and wildlife habitat” should be a top priority for the new OCP. “I was certainly encouraged by the results,” said Lamson. “People do want us to respect the natural habitat and values.” And while the valley is a top recreational destination, only 32 per cent said access to recreational opportunities was an important issue and only five per cent wanted access to recreational opportunities to guide land use planning. In the Columbia Valley/Cultus Lake/Lindell Beach area, 63 per cent said access and roads were a high priority, and 36 per cent wanted pathways or commuter routes for bicycles and pedestrians. Neither community, each renowned for its natural beauty, said community appearance and aesthetics were important issues. The surveys, along with feedback from open houses in both the Chilliwack River Valley and the Cultus Lake/Columbia Valley areas, will be used to guide two advisory planning commissions that will meet throughout the fall. Lamson said the FVRD hopes to wrap up the OCP process by next spring.

Hogging the spotlight
City continues to wage battle against giant hogweed plant BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
oisonous giant hogweed has been present in Chilliwack for years, but the toxic plant is back in the spotlight as it has been found for the first time in eastern Ontario. The City of Chilliwack has had public works crews battling giant hogweed this season, according to public works director Glen MacPherson. The sap of the giant hogweed causes photodermatitis, which makes the skin sensitive to sunlight and this can lead to long-lasting swelling, purple or black blisters and scars. But even worse, just one drop of the sap in contact with the eyes can cause temporary and sometimes permanent blindness. In 2008, city staff observed the

plant on city property and have been battling it ever since. MacPherson said hogweed has appeared on hillside roads in the Ryder Lake area and the Eastern Hillsides. The current warm, dry weather serves to help the plant grow and once it is established, it’s hard to kill. And it seems to be spreading. MacPherson said currently the weed control crews fight giant hogweed in approximately 12 publicly accessible locations, something that takes considerable time to prepare for given the size and toxicity of the plant. Giant hogweed has also been confirmed at approximately 20 private sites in Chilliwack. Last year the Fraser Valley Regional District, which undertakes the control of the plant in Chilliwack, began using stem injection equipment to reduce the chemical spread into the surrounding environment. ◗ Anyone who notices giant hogweed on a roadside or on other city property is asked to immediately call the public works department at 604-793-2810. If it is found on private property do not touch it, but phone public works for advice as to its removal.

Hot button topic MLAs boast that our HST is the lowest in Canada
BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
o current conversation about business in B.C. can avoid the new Harmonized Sales Tax that came into effect less than three weeks ago. The topic came up at the small business roundtable meeting held by the ministry of small business, technology and economic development in Chilliwack on Friday. Minister Iain Black said those in attendance “understand their ability to either reinvest or hire people” will increase with the HST, but the key concern was one of communication. “They were saying ‘we get it, but we still don’t understand a lot of the mechanics,’” Black said. “‘We’d like a little help with that.’ And they also communicated that on July 1 the sun came up, the customers came.” There are certainly a lot of small business owners whose products and services became taxable on July 1, and Black said “there is an acknowledgement of that” but that the “adjustment” period will be a short-term phenomenon. “We are not pioneers of new tax policy on this particular point,” he
said. “There is a tremendous school of experience that drove the logic behind it and the most prominent element of that logic was job creation and they understand that as well.” For many critics of the HST, the tax itself is less the issue than the way it was implemented after the provincial election. Chilliwack-Hope MLA Barry Penner said part of what has not been communicated well was what changed from the federal government’s position before and after the last election. One of those changes was the ability of provinces to set their own rates. “Now we are allowed to set our own rate and that is why we have the lowest HST in Canada,” Penner said. The $1.6 billion in transition funding helped too. “You might ask yourself ‘why would the federal government be willing to part with $1.6 billion?’” he said. “Because overall it makes Canada more competitive. It helps the Canadian economy.” Les pointed also to the five per cent “opt-out” in the HST whereby provinces could create a list of products that are HST exempt. “We chose motor fuels, gasoline and home heating,” Penner said. “Ontario chose Tim Hortons,” Les said, pointing to Ontario’s decision chose to give HST exemption to meals under $5. “So their gasoline price went up eight per cent when they introduced the HST,” Penner said.
Roundtable sessions “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make “After this I’m going to him drink,” he said. “I guess go and carry computers we’ve got to start leading them to water because they around.

Naming rights still available
Campfire ban likely on Friday BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
hilliwack’s new cultural centre is nearly complete and those behind the city-owned facility are on a fundraising push to pay for crucial equipment and operating capital. From $150 tickets to the opening night gala to $1,000 grand piano key sponsorships there are many ways to donate money and get a company or individual name in the building. But there is also getting a name “on” the building as corporate sponsorship of the unnamed cultural centre and various other rooms are up for grabs. Former mayor Clint Hames is the centre’s liaison for corporate sponsorship and is currently presenting 14 naming opportunities, according to a Chilliwack Arts and Cultural Centre Society press release issued Monday. Hames is not only the former mayor and a long-time arts supporter, but he has been integrally involved in the Chilliwack Players’ Guild since before his political career. “My first love was the arts in Chilliwack,” he said in the release. “As some may remember, I was the first performer on stage at the arts centre downtown. As the retired mayor I am incredibly excited to back the centre

The new arts and culture centre hopes to bring local business on side. and build bridges between the business community and the arts, and people do take note of businesses that step up in a philanthropic way.” The society says that donors “are sure to gain an enormous amount of public exposure every time an event is held, classes are conducted, or gatherings take place at this world-class facility.” Commitments start from $250 annually and range from two- to 10-year terms. John Blessin, a member of the board of directors and chairperson for The 88 Key Club, is another community member serving as a liaison for the centre, particularly because the funds raised by The 88 Key Club will go towards the Ron Goldfinch Piano. Blessin and Goldfinch served together on the Chilliwack Rotary Club while Goldfinch was the president. Before he passed away, Goldfinch worked towards a fundraiser for a concert grand piano, seeking community members to
sponsor the purchase. “He would be honoured to have his name on the concert grand piano for the centre,” said Ron’s wife Marie Goldfinch. “He always believed Chilliwack to be an extremely giving community and thought The 88 Key Club would be a perfect fit for those looking for ways to give.” Each key sponsorship is $1,000 and to acknowledge donations, personalized text will be featured in permanent recognition in the lobby. Or, for $500, donors can have a name engraved in the maple wood arms of one of the 500-plus seats in the theatre as part of the Take Your Seat! fundraiser. The opening gala is Sept. 25 and tickets are $150 each and will be available soon through the centre’s box office. ◗ To participate in naming opportunities, The 88 Key Club or Take Your Seat!, please contact KellyAnne TeBrinke, marketing manager, at 604-392-8000.
ith Chilliwack-area forests tinder dry, fire officials are getting ready to implement a campfire ban before the coming weekend. Fire information officer Donna MacPherson says the Ministry of Forests will implement the ban on Friday at noon. The ban, which will affect provincial parks and all Crown land, is the direct result of several weeks of warm, dry weather that has increased the risk of forest fires. The fire danger for the Chilliwack area east to Hope is rated high, according to MacPherson. MacPherson, who works at the Coastal Fire Centre, said the ban is not unusual for the Chilliwack area. “Your area is actually one of our drier areas,” she said. “Usually it’s in high to extreme at this time of year.” MacPherson said the entire Chilliwack Forest District— which extends past hope up the Fraser Canyon—has seen seven fires already this year. She said most of the local
activity comes from the Harrison Lake area. Because of the proximity of local forests to population centres, MacPherson said a quick response is vital when a fire starts in the Chilliwack area. “Most of our fires have a strong potential for interface.” While the campfire ban is aimed at stamping out one of the burning causes of forestfires, MacPherson said people still need to be careful when they venture into the forests, especially if they’re using offroad vehicles. “ATVs and motorcycles, as they travel down dirt roads, throw sparks behind them,” she said. Those sparks pose a danger, so MacPherson said riders should refrain from riding through grass, where a spark can set off a brush fire. While traditional campfires may be about to be outlawed, those heading camping aren’t totally out of luck when it comes to roasting marshmallows on a fire. This is the first year that so-called “propane campfires” will be allowed during a campfire ban. As the name suggests, the fires run on propane.

Better ways to choose royalty Canada is still a constitutional monarchy because most Canadians don’t know what the alternatives can be. Actually, most don’t even know that we live in a constitutional monarchy—that Canada’s head of state is actually Queen Elizabeth II. Did you think, like most Canadians, that Stephen Harper is our head of state? Well, most of the time, it seems, so does he. Now, if this were a true democracy, you and I and everybody with citizenship papers would be the true rulers. But alas, no—here you still have to be born to the title. A queen who rarely visits is actually the most important person in this country. That’s remarkable, considering that dear, old Conrad Black —you know, the Canadian former media mogul who is pining away in an American jail cell?—not so long ago jettisoned his Canadian citizenship because he was being denied a pseudo-royal title because Canada doesn’t officially recognize royal titles… except for the queen, I guess. Once, simply questioning this stuff, as has been recently pointed out to us, would have cost us our heads—or maybe got us shipped off to Australia. But these are more enlightened times. In our current almostdemocracy, it may not be legal to make fun of the old lady who costs us millions of tax dollars every time
Be Our Guest she accepts an invitation to tea— but let’s just say it would probably be politically incorrect for her to order the axe to fall. Now, she does cost us far less than the billion dollars that the royal pomposity of the G8 and G20 summits soaked us for recently. I believe that if there were more rational discussion—and a reasonable helping of irrational derision (which I feel always helps lighten a heavy debate)—we’d be well on our way off the path of royal obeisance. As it stands right now, the queen really doesn’t do much for us—other than the warm feeling of utter gratitude her very existence occasionally elicits from some of the Brits and ex-Brits who still think they own this colony. But here’s a little test. Remember that royalty—if allowed to procreate—is forever. Maybe you think Queen E. II is a sweetheart deserving of your divine devotion. After all, Her Majesty’s a pretty nice girl… an’ all that. Think forward: how does the thought of Charlie Rex strike you? Even in Merry Olde England, there is serious contemplation of
whether the royal system could survive him. And what could we have here instead of a queen (or king) to watch over her (his) humble, little children? In reality, everything the queen could do for us is already done by our Governor General—who supposedly represents the Queen Herself, but is in fact chosen by the Prime Minister in consultation with the Privy Council. The only royalty in the equation is purely symbolic. And the current Gov-Gen—as evidenced by her botching of the parliamentary proroguing that has become all the fashion of late —is a pretty good argument for a complete change to the system. How about we elect our senate? And the head of the resultant Upper Chamber is named Chancellor (or some-such) and takes on the symbolic role of interpreting the constitution for the prime minister? Or how about a brave new American Idol knock-off – Canadian Idolatry – in which prospective symbolic heads of state show us from week to week how classy and regal they can be, and everybody gets to phone in their choices (99 cents per vote, to help fund the office)? It makes more sense than what we’ve got. ◗ Bob Groeneveld is the editor of the Langley Advance.
ith all the negative news about police over the past few years, it’s doubly good news to hear that a B.C. police officer has won a recent legal victory. The officer, a member of the Transit Authority Police, was injured stopping a drunk driver in 2008 in Chilliwack. The unarmed, off-duty constable spotted the weaving truck as it clipped a parked car. He called for on-duty officers but no one was close by, as they were at another emergency. The officer tried to stop the driver himself. In return, he was repeatedly punched. The driver shoved the officer out of the truck and then dragged the officer and ran over his arm. Battered, the officer still managed to get up and arrest the driver, whose blood alcohol level was .250, more than three times the legal limit. The legal battle came when the officer tried to get WorkSafeBC to compensate him for his injuries. The agency said the officer was off duty and therefore it was not a workplace injury. The legal wrangle has recently ended in the officer’s favour. A WCB Appeals Tribunal has agreed that officers, who have sworn an oath to keep the peace, can place themselves on duty to prevent a crime. The ideals of service—of putting the security and safety of others above their own—is the source of the public’s respect for police officers. Police who consider themselves on duty at all times, whenever they are needed, are the kind of officers we need. And a ruling like this one goes a small way to acknowledging their work.

Held to ransom by sky-high local fuel prices Editor: Who is gouging us Chilliwack at the gas pumps in Chilliwack? Is it sponsored in some way by our less than forthright provincial government? By our neighbours and city councillors? Or is it our friends and neighbours, the local purveyors of gasoline acting in collusion to fleece the motoring public even more? Last week, on a trip to Prince Rupert, through Prince George, through what would certainly be a higher cost area, the price per litre was steady at $1.049 until Prince George where it increased to $1.089 and remained at that price to Prince Rupert. Returning to Chilliwack I was disgusted to see the price was $1.129 per litre. Why? We here have no transit tax. We have no parking tax. Transportation can not be an issue. So who in Chilliwack is gouging us? Take a close look at your friendly petroleum licensee. Are they to blame? The people of Chilliwack deserve better and deserve answers. We have learned to expect this treatment from the Liberals but expect better from the people that live among us. By the way, Costco fuel was $1.009 on Saturday and has been at that price for some time. I won’t mention the price of fuel in the U.S. I hate to be forced to leave my community to make essential purchases but I refuse to be held to ransom by unscrupulous businesses. F.E. McGough Chilliwack
Yo, butthead, be more careful Editor: Just a note to the young duffus who pulled up beside my wife and I on our bicycles in his noisy little yellow car with the stereo blaring at the corner of Topaz and Knight around noon on Friday and proceeded to drop his fully glowing cigarette butt on the ground right beside my wife. I put your cigarette out for you. Please don’t ever do that again, as the next time I’m stomping out
Public should be notified quickly Editor: Again, history repeats itself as the RCMP announces that a dangerous sex offender failed to report back from his day parole “nearly two weeks ago.” Queried why the public was not notified at the time, the RCMP spokesperson said “we were exploring other investigative avenues at that time and that is standard procedure.” What a load of crap. They never learn. These delays of alerting the public to the presence of convicted offenders with violent pasts on the loose in their communities have resulted in loss of life such as the tragedy in Vernon, perpetrated by Eric Fisher which involved a particularly violent death of a senior citizen. Why would those who are entrusted to “serve and protect” the public fail to immediately alert the public to enable them to exercise caution and protect their families as well as the possibility of an apprehension on recognition and reporting by a citizen? I believe the reason to be the avoidance of public criticism of the classification of inmates in these halfway houses which Correction Services Canada initially promised would house only non-violent inmates that posed no risk to public safety. As anticipated, once established

this policy was not adhered to and Mayor Sharon Gaetz and the Citizen Advisory Committees have been told that CSC will determine which inmates will be accepted despite their concerns and protests—sort of like a game of Russian Roulette with public lives at risk. They hope that a dangerous offender who has failed to return to the facility (escapee to be accurate without the niceties) will be apprehended without incident and without the public becoming aware of the matter thereby dodging yet another bullet (no pun intended) criticizing the failure of the CSC and RCMP to protect the public. This will continue. Ken Rowe Chilliwack
School system gets a failing grade Editor: Only 45 per cent prepared for further education or career (Vancouver Sun, July 16). Where’s the “ result-based accountability”? Dawn Steele of the so-called B.C. Education Coalition has asked, “where has he [Lal Sharma] been?”As a former professor of education who has been there and done that, I’m compelled to give Ms. Steele a poor grade, with explanations: First, the total funding for 20102011 is over $ 5.6 billion (with a B) not $ 5.1 billion as she reports. But then, what’s upward of half a billion dollars amongst friends. It’s worth stressing that the operating funding for education does include an increase of $112 mil-
lion. That pushes up the total expenditure per student to over $10,000 yearly. At this rate, it’ll cost well over $100,000 to carry each child from K-12. Wow, that’s a lot of money, demolishing “the underfunding myth.” Second, Ms. Steele makes no mention of what the taxpayer actually gets for such a huge investment. With barely 70 per cent students actually making it to the finish line, one has to wonder. Worse, the graduation rate in this district is just 68 per cent. Meaning, one in three students is not graduating on time if at all. Third, still staying with Chilliwack school district, this year only close to half of Grade 7 students met or exceeded expectations in math. That’s sad. Further, on an in-house test of reading, the Grade 6 results were even worse. Now, to claim that this district is forced to spend twice as much on special education as it gets from the province, only speaks ill of our system. Prevention’s wholesale; remediation retail. By using science-based programs early, we can cut the need for special placement by half and save lots of money, too. All in all, it’s not the funding shortfall but inefficiency. When the cost pressures of providing education outstrip the funds provided, learn to do more with less. Manage resources properly. Remember, it’s the wasteful school spending burdening the system, stupid. Get it? Dr. Lal Sharma Chilliwack
Blaming activists was easy way out Editor: Recently with the G20 protests in Toronto, many groups have gone on to attack the activist groups who formed the basis for many of these protests. While there are merits to that argument, that argument precludes the idea that this was a huge example of diversive police tactics. Burning cars, riots in the streets; if the Toronto police force wanted an excuse to exercise an authoritar-

ian presence over these protest groups, they successfully did so. Within the time frame of this happening, media across the nation tied the violence to the protestors. That being said, can we really believe this? The police created laws that didn’t exist, were brutal when they could be; all of this and I’m to believe that the public opinion and media side with the police on this one? They were exercising their control, and I’m led to believe that for those cop cars to be light, it had to be a policeman. There was a lot of money spent on security at this summit, and to justify the price tag the police “improvised.” What does this say about our police force, or us as a nation? This event has led me to believe that this is a step in the move towards de-democratization of our society. If a security budget governs how we as people are treated, then this nation’s police forces need to examine who they’re here to truly protect and serve. Kurtis Smejkal Chilliwack
Pedestrians should feel safer now Editor: A big thank you to the Mayor Sharon Gaetz and the traffic department at city hall for approving and installing a pedestrian crosswalk across Knight Road to connect the two sections of Luckakuck and Trail Park. I am sure that many people and their dogs feel a lot safer trying to get across especially due to the increase in traffic with the new overpass. And, by the way, the speed limit on Knight Road is 50 km and not 90 km. Nick Hendrix Sardis

Huskers lay goose egg Surrey’s Big Kahuna Rams earn 36-0 exhibition win BY TYLER OLSEN firstname.lastname@example.org
uckily the score doesn’t matter. The Chilliwack Huskers lost 36-0 to the Big Kahuna (South Surrey) Rams Saturday evening in British Columbia Football Conference action at Exhibition Stadium. After having two touchdowns called back on penalties, the Rams finally got on the board late in the first half and didn’t look back. Ken Goudswaard/TIMES

But while his squad didn’t win, Huskers coach Luke Acheson was satisfied with the game. “The goal was to not necessarily win the game but get everybody on the field,” he said. “I liked what our first team was able to do against their first team. Then we started subbing a lot of guys . . . so the score got away from us a little bit. “Surrey played a real good game. You have to take your hat off to them.” One player who stood out for Acheson was linebacker Blake Schaufelberger.

Amateur Mike Broadfoot escapes the sand on the ninth hole at Chilliwack Golf and Country Club during play at the Chilliwack Men’s Open. Broadfoot won his flight going three-over par during the two-day tournament.
Playoff perfect for Parry way back into the picture, racking up birdies on two par-threes—the eighth and 12th holes. The lone Chilliwack entry amongst the professionals, Keith Jackson, shot a respectable seven-over round of 78 on Saturday before falling off the pace on Sunday. Chilliwack had more representation among the amateurs, with Mike Broadfoot going three-over for the tournament to finish tied for first in his flight. Other solid Chilliwack scores came from Dean Meyer and Bradley McGillivray (13over), Ted Lancaster (14-over), John Brandreth (15-over). The shot of the tournament, however, went to Dave Bolton, who aced the ninth hole on Saturday.

ancouver Golf Tour money leader Bryn Parry came through when it counted, beating James Harper and Philip Jonas in a playoff to win the Chilliwack Open Sunday at Chilliwack Golf and Country Club. Kyle German finished in fourth place, with John Shin scoring even par to finish fifth. For the professionals, the key at CGCC was to rack up birdies on the front nine while hanging on for dear life on the back. But the 16th hole proved too much for some. With just three holes to play, both Jonas and German bogeyed the hole. For Jonas, the extra shot sent him to the playoff, where he lost, while the same hole caused German to miss the playoff. Parry, meanwhile, was solid on Sunday. After bogeying two of the first four holes, Parry climbed his

Adanac Jason Wulder of Chilliwack in action as Coquitlam plays Burnaby in Western Lacrosse Association competition.
What a Wulder-ful career
BY STEVE EWEN The Province
hen Chilliwack-resident JasonWulder arrived on the lacrosse scene over 20 years ago, some boxla folk wondered if he was just an overly flashy flash in the pan. The kid from Calgary had those big, showy pump fakes that could freeze motorists in the vicinity, let alone opposing defenders, but Western Lacrosse Association teams figured that checkers would eventually catch on. They wondered whether Wulder, who was starring in junior with the Richmond Outlaws at the time, did enough else well to be successful. Throw in the fact that he was liable to go back to Alberta, too, and he ended up as just a third-round pick in the 1992 WLA entry draft. We should all get such returns on our investments. Today, Wulder, 39, is the oldest player in the WLA and remains a key offensive contributor for the Coquitlam Adanacs in this, his 17th season with the club. He’s been around so long, in fact, that he’s currently lining up with the son, Dane Reelie, 24, of one of his former Coquitlam teammates, Mike Reelie. “I’ve been incredibly lucky,” said Wulder, who works for the City of Vancouver but lives in Chilliwack with his wife, Tracey, and their three kids. “I’ve never had a major injury. I tore some stomach muscles, but it wasn’t career threatening. Everything else has been a sprain. “The other common denominator is that
it doesn’t matter the age of the guys in the dressing room: everybody is still just an idiot lacrosse player. “It’s just a different breed of guy. I love the 15 minutes before games and 15 minutes after games when everybody is picking on everybody and the barbs are flying around the room. I love the team camaraderie stuff.” He’s undoubtedly good at it. Here’s Wulder on playing with a second generation Reelie: “Fifteen years from now, you’ll be writing a story about how our son Tyler [who’s five now] will be playing with a guy who played with his father.” Or how about Wulder on the adjustments of aging: “I haven’t had to shift from forward to defence, like some guys do as they get older. It’s a good thing because I don’t have the body type to play defence—or the work ethic.” Or how about Wulder on whether fans realize how old he is: “I don’t think many people know. I do a good job of keeping my helmet on, which keeps me from showing my hairline.” “He’s a fun kid,” said Adanacs general manager Les Wingrove. “He does a good job of keeping everyone loose. And he’s a prankster. He gets me all the time.” Next year? That’s a whole other story, as always. “I have no idea,” said Wulder. “I’m pretty sure that this is my last year. But I always leave it until March or April, and Les and I sit down and talk.”

Vipers claim provincial title
New talent for Huskers HUSKERS, from page 16 quarterback, and also blocked a field goal. “We were pretty impressed with what he had to show,” said Acheson. With 20 returnees from last year and 45 new players, the exhibition tilt will give Acheson and his coaching staff an idea of how the new Huskers will fit into the team’s game plan when the regular season begins. “We needed to see what those new guys could do so our goal was to get everybody in the game. When we did that, the score got away from us a little bit but we were able to do what we wanted going into the game, and that was to get a new look at all of our new talent,” said Acheson. “It let’s you know what situations they do best in and how exactly we’ll be able to use them going forward.” The Huskers start their season for real next weekend against the Victoria Rebels.
Have their sights set on Westerns
hilliwack’s peewee A Vipers are provincial fastpitch champions. The Vipers assured themselves a place at the Western Canadian Championships by crushing the competition at the provincial championships in Langford over the weekend. The Vipers rolled through the round-robin, going 4-0, to book a place in the best-of-three final with the Clearwater Crushers, who represented British Columbia at last year’s Western Canadian Championships. The Vipers had mercy-ruled Clearwater 14-6 in the round robin and got off to a good start in the first game thanks to some clutch defence. Up two runs in the seventh inning, and with the tying run at the plate, the Vipers’ second baseman snagged a line drive heading

towards the gap to save a likely home run. The catch helped seal the game and left the Vipers a win from gold. The Vipers, undefeated in 34 outings, showed some nerves in the second game and the Crushers took advantage, using their bats to walk away with a 7-4 victory and a tie series. Nevertheless, the Vipers rebounded well in the third game, with two of the first three batters hitting home runs. That was all the offence Chilliwack’s pitching needed, as the Vipers’ hurlers combined to give up just two hits and no runs to lead the Vipers to the championship. “It was a long, intense—very intense—weekend,” said Vipers coach Jeff Donegan. “Our streak was broken but it was for the best. It gave us adversity and allowed us to truly gel as a team.” T h e V i p e r s w i l l n ow b e g i n fundraising in preparation for the Western Canadian Championships in August. “We have always said we won’t go to any tournament unless all of the boys can afford to go. Westerns is no different,” said Donegan.

BY MARILYNNE V BLACK For the Times
ummer reading is an important component of an overall reading program. Research shows that summer vacation often has a significant negative effect on student learning. A recent article in the International Reading Association’s Reading Today (June/July 2010) refers to this loss as “summer slide,” “summer setback” and/or “summer slump.” It states that three months or more of learning loss can take place, “especially those who may not have access to reading material during their vacation from school. Providing opportunities for students to read regularly during the summer can prevent this reading achievement loss. The bottom line is that students who read during the summer do better in the fall. (www.readwritethink.org). Other ways to help prevent this “summer slippage”? 1. Make reading every day a priority. Schedule it in—reading just 20 minutes a day greatly impacts a child’s literacy. Coordinate your child’s interests and family summer activities with books. For instance on rainy days check out some craft books for interesting projects. When going on short trips find information books to complement the outing i.e. what lives in a pond/lake/the seashore, insects in the meadow/around my home? 2. Go to the local library. It has a summer reading club and a summer family storytime. 3. Take a “trip” around the world. Get a world map, choose a number of countries to “visit” and read two folk tales, two information books, two picture books/or novels (depending on the age of children) about each country. Bring in a bit of math by making a few recipes from that country. 4. Investigate your family history and make a family tree. Find folktales and information books about that country or countries; interview grandparents. 5. Study the night sky. Use such books as There Once was a Sky Full of Stars by Bob Crelin and Stars and Galaxies by Robin Kerrod.

Local student wins MS scholarship
he cost of post secondary education continues to rise but Chilliwack resident Emily Neufeld is getting a helping hand from the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada. Neufeld was awarded a $1,000 scholarship and is headed to University of Fraser Valley in September. The MS Society’s Scholarship Program, supported by Billy Talent and Friends, is designed to help students who have MS or have a parent with MS. Neufeld is one of 100 students receiving a portion of the $100,000 disbursed this year. “In 1998, my dad was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis,” Neufeld says. “I was only four years old
then, so I could probably say that MS has been part of my entire life. There have been times when it has made difficult and trying circumstances for our family, but as a result, we have grown really close. “Because of our closeness, my dad has been able to teach me a lot, and my life has been definitely enriched by him. He has always been an inspiration and encouragement in every area of my life, from school to my personal life. My dad is an amazing support to this family even when he is not feeling well, and is one of the strongest people I have ever met.” Fraser Valley chapter chair, Dr. Martin Darrow, for the MS Society

PACT program needs our votes Part of Pepsi Refresh Project
hilliwack Community Services is trying to make our community a better place by introducing the Parent and Child Together program for local families at risk and Chilliwack residents can help by voting in the Pepsi Refresh Project. Chilliwack Community Services took the initiative to come up with and submit the idea to the Pepsi Refresh Project, and the idea got accepted as one of almost 250 ideas across Canada that aim to move the world forward in a positive way. Now that the idea has been submitted, it’s up to the people to vote for the ideas that they like the best, so Chilliwack Community Services is appealing to the community of Chilliwack to vote for this idea. If the project gets enough votes, it could get a grant of $5,000 and be able to offer the program. “We were so pleased that our program idea got accept-
ed,” said Darby Wilkinson, Early Years director at Chilliwack Community Services. “We want to help as many families as we can as their children need every opportunity for early learning as possible. “The agency hopes everyone votes for the project to we can offer it to families in our community. All you have to do is go to www.refresheverything.ca/pact and vote for it. Please tell everyone you know to vote for this project so we have the funds to be able to offer it in the community.” The Pepsi Refresh Project accepts 300 new ideas for positive change every other month (Aug. 1, Oct. 1, etc.) and will reward over $1 million in grants to the ideas that are voted the best by the people of Canada. ◗ For more information about Chilliwack Community Services and the PACT program please contact Darby Wilkinson at 604 7924267 or email wilkinsond@ comserv.bc.ca.

A call for applications was made in December 2009 and in the end, $100,000 in scholarships was disbursed. The scholarship program became possible when Aaron Solowoniuk, MS youth ambassador and drummer for Juno Award-winning rock band Billy Talent came to the MS Society looking for a creative way to use his influence to help youth impacted by MS. Aaron himself was diagnosed with MS when he was 22. “The MS scholarship program is an important resource for

Decision on Cultural exchange event features local artists incinerator at A end of month BY KELLY SINOSKI The Province
upporters of garbage incineration, including trade unionists and a U.S. expert on renewable energy, made one last pitch last Wednesday as Metro Vancouver wrapped up public consultations on its draft solid-waste management plan. The plan, which will go to the Metro board for a vote on July 30, has been mired in controversy over its proposal to build a trash incinerator in the region. At least four municipalities, including Vancouver, have said they won’t support the proposal for a $470-million regional incinerator until Me t ro h a s re d u c e d t h e amount of waste, boosted recycling rates and explored other options to deal with excess garbage. But that didn’t stop about 50 labour unionists from attending the final public consultation to support a bid by Covanta Energy to build an incinerator in Gold River on Vancouver Island. Rick Brandes, an expert on renewable energy and a supporteroftrashincineration, also gave his opinion on using waste to energy. The meeting marked the 30th public consultation to be held by Metro on the issue. The speakers, including Mark Olsen, president of the Coalition of BC BuildingTrade Unions, argued the proposed Covanta plant was the best option, since it had support from First Nations and the public in Gold River, was ready to go ahead and would create much-needed jobs. In recent years, Olsen said Canadian workers have had to step aside to make room for foreign workers to do the job on the Canada Line, the Golden Ears Bridge and the twin water tunnels project in North Vancouver. “We’re not going to stand still for that kind of treatment any longer,” he said. “As the unions involved in the construction trades, we are
taking the initiative to go after these important jobs.” Wayne Peppard, executive director of the BC and Yukon Te r r i t o r y Bu i l d i n g a n d Construction Trades Council, agreed but argued that the Gold River project is also the “best solution for the planet.” Metro Vancouver produces about 1.4 million tonnes of garbage every year. The draft solid-waste management plan aims to raise recycling rates from 55 per cent of garbage today to 70 per cent by 2015, with the remaining 30 per cent—about one million tonnes—burned or buried. The regional district says an incinerator would provide greater benefit to the region, as it would bring in $10 million in revenue, provide hot water and heat to neighbouring buildings and stimulate the economy. By comparison, the existing Cache Creek landfill costs about $30 million a year to run. Lionel Railton, of the In t e r n a t i o n a l Un i o n o f Operators Engineers local 115, questioned what would happen to the remaining 30 per cent of garbage if there was no incinerator and the Cache Creek and Burns Bog landfills were full. “The Gold River solution is the common-sense solution,” Railton said. But Patricia Ross, chairwoman of the Fraser Valley Regional District, argued that supporters of trash incinerators don’t realize the hazards. Ross said the FVRD was neutral on the issue before it started investigating the science and facts around incineration. Waste in North America is 20 times more toxic than that in Europe, she said, because our governments allow more toxins to be used in packaging. The toxic ash left over from burning will then be dumped in the landfill, she said. Lois Jackson, Delta’s mayor and chairwoman of Metro Vancouver, said she’s not sure how Metro will vote on the plan.

dozen Chilliwack artists will have their work on display in Vancouver starting Friday as part of a fine art and stamp exhibition devoted to Dr. Norman Bethune. A Tribute to Dr. Norman Bethune is presented by the Chilliwack-based Canadian International Cultural Exchange Society (CICES). In 2008, CICES hosted a “Tribute to Dr. Norman Bethune Fine Art and Stamp Exhibition” in Chilliwack, which was enthusiastically received. The purpose of the show, which opens July 23, is to celebrate 40 years of friendship between Canada and China, and the 25th anniversary of
Vancouver and Guangzhou as twin sister cities. The exhibition is a joint Canada Post and People’s Republic of China stamp exhibition featuring stamps related to Bethune from 1985-2000. The show is enhanced by the fine art contributions of 15 outstanding Canadian and Chinese artists in a variety of mediums. The display includes rare photos of Bethune and his family throughout his life, and also includes artworks on loan from the Shijiazhuang Dr. Bethune Peace Hospital and the Dr. Bethune Military Medical School. The CICE thanks all contributors, and especially the Chinese government for
