Green light for garbage burning BY KELLY SINOSKI Vancouver Sun
etro Vancouver will go ahead with plans to investigate burning the region’s garbage—but not necessarily in Metro Vancouver. Members of Metro’s sewage and drainage district voted 63-49 in favour Friday of investigating
But still not clear if Metro will incinerate in the region or out
options for a mass-burn incinerator or waste “conversion technologies” such as anaerobic digestion or gasification, both in and out of the region, to deal with 500,000 tonnes of waste that is now being
dumped at the Cache Creek landfill. The decision followed hours of debate, including an earlier rejection of the same motion. The directors also threw out a recom-
mendation by Metro chief administrative officer Johnny Carline to build an incineraEB IRST tor in the region. First reported on Carline said such chilliwacktimes.com a facility would be cheaper to build and operate than trucking the garbage outside. He said it would also
reduce greenhouse gas emissions and allow the region to sell heat and energy from the facility. He warned if Metro didn’t pursue “additional waste to energy” in region, it could then investigate a facility outside the region or, in default, expand the Cache Creek dump. The plan now goes to Environment See GARBAGE, page 4
Chopper pilot averts disaster

he Chilliwack-based owner of a fire-fighting helicopter that crash landed near Lillooet Thursday is crediting the pilot with averting disaster. “He did an absolutely marvelous job to put the machine down where he did,” said Ernst Maas, who owns Chilliwack’s Transwest Helicopters. Both the 61-year-old pilot and the 27-year-old co-pilot escaped the crash without serious injuries. Speaking to the Times on Friday, Maas said, “I just talked to the co-pilot today, and he wants to fly today.” The pilot, meanwhile, was airlifted to hospital with relatively minor injuries. He was released soon after and, on Friday, was recovering at home. “He got banged up a little bit,” said Maas. “He’s got a mild concussion, so he’s going to have to rest a bit. But he’s got a few bumps and See CHOPPER, page 4

RCMP bust Rosedale grow Chilliwack Mounties busted a small marijuana grow operation in Rosedale on Thursday. Officers searched a home in the 10100 block of Caryks Road on a theft of electricity warrant. They found 370 marijuana plants and a hydro bypass that allowed the operators to steal electricity. Police made no arrests and the investigation is ongoing.

2001 Did Les invite SE2 to town? Chilliwack-Sumas NDP candidate Christine Muise says two articles from a newspaper in 1999 prove that Liberal candidate John Les invited the SE2 power project to make its home in Chilliwack. Abbotsford Mayor George Peary said Les wanted SE2 but couldn’t get approval. For his part, Les said it wasn’t true he wanted SE2 in Chilliwack, but at one time would have considered bringing it to B.C. to add value to water and natural gas.
Geese and what they leave behind on the shoreline at Cultus Lake are an ongoing issue with residents and visitors.

Poopy problem at Cultus BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
ure they’re cute and sure they’re a Canadian icon, but Canada geese leave droppings on the beaches and shorelines of Cultus Lake, which has become a real problem according to some lake residents Ideas on how to stop the icky problem are being considered for 2011. The problem is not exclusive to Cultus Lake. Every year communities with parks and beaches all over North America try to find ways to deal with the waste matter from that most ubiquitous of Canadian symbols. Cultus Lake Park Board commissioner Sacha Peter said an attempt to address the issue in August of 2009 hasn’t had any appreciable effect. “The board attempted to address this issue in an Aug. 12, 2009 motion that enabled residents to use soft stakes and tape on the shoreline,” he said via e-mail. Later this month, Peter intends to make a motion to have park board staff
explore two methods: barriers and culling. He said he also wants to meet with the regional district and/or the province to see if the problem can be addressed “since they have also plagued the pro-
“[Canada Geese] have also plagued the provincial campground.” Sacha Peter vincial campground.” Peter said he has looked into goosedeterrant methods and while there are many that have been tried, only a couple are truly practical. His research has found that in some Okanagan communities there has been a 100-fold increase in goose populations and as a result they have experience fighting the issue. The first method he thinks is practical is installing barriers at the lakeshore, which could be done by growing
tall grass. “While having the obvious advantage of being relatively easy to maintain, its primary disadvantage is it serves as a significant visual distraction,” Peter wrote on his blog. “Also, this decision would fundamentally change the nature of the main beach area, which currently has sand.” The only other practical option is killing them, according to Peter, and this can be costly, noisy as well as upsetting to some people. “There is also the ethical/animal concern of killing wildlife in the name of park beautification,” he wrote. “Indeed, such a decision would become very political.” There are, of course, also federal and provincial wildlife laws that need to be followed. Some other goose poop deterrent methods Peter said he has found to be impractical include: windmills and other visual distractions, harassment, encouraging nesting in other areas, noise generators and stealing eggs from nests.

Pickton victims’ relatives push for inquiry

rnie Crey, whose sister Dawn’s DNA was found at the Pickton farm, said Friday he plans to start lobbying for a public inquiry in the Pickton case. “What we can do is look in our own backyard and say, ‘How did this happen? How could it happen? What lessons can we learn?’ . . . so that if anything like this raises its head in the future we can address it,” the 61year-old Chilliwack resident said Friday. Crey said he was happy with the Supreme Court’s decision Friday to deny Pickton’s appeal, as a new trial on all 26 counts would have raised the possibility he would go free. “A bird in the hand is better than two in the bush,” Crey said. “The guy’s gone. He’ll never see the sidewalk.” Last year, the RCMP recommended the Crown file six more murder charges against Pickton, in addition to the 26 he’d been charged with. Dawn Crey was among those six. She vanished in 2000, at the age of 43. Although Ernie Crey credited police with catching Pickton eventually, he said the VPD had for too l o n g i g n o re d c o n c e r n s from Downtown Eastside residents and groups about women who had gone missing. The provincial government has rejected calls for a public inquiry into the case. Crey plans to start contacting leaders of aboriginal and women’s groups next week and urge them to push the province for an inquiry, he said.

News GARBAGE, from page 1 Minister Barry Penner. If it’s approved Metro will send out requests for proposals with the hope that some sort of waste-to-energy facility could be built by 2015. The Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) criticized the Metro decision to support incineration anywhere. “This decision may have far-reaching impacts on the Fraser Valley airshed and on our ability to reach waste reduction targets across the region,” said FVRD board chair Patricia Ross in a press release issued Friday. “If an in-region incinerator is ultimately approved, it doesn’t solve the garbage problem at home. It exports the problem, in the form of air pollution, to the Fraser Valley.” CHOPPPER, from page 1 bruises and that’s it.” Maas sounded tired Friday after enduring a difficult 24 hours. “It was very tough [Thursday] because we didn’t know for an hour and a half whether the crew survived,” he said. That anxiety was heightened by the fact that the pilot was a long-time friend dating back nearly four decades. “Jeff and I go back a long, long time,” said Maas of his chief pilot, Jeff Brown. “It was very tough yesterday but at the end of the day, he called me and we joked and everything was good.” Both men knew the incident could have been much, much worse. A pilot himself, Maas has survived
FVRD critical of Metro’s decision Ozone levels continue to be a concern in the valley and are the highest in the province, something that is not the fault of FVRD residents, according to Ross. “When we look at who is responsible for air pollution in the Fraser Valley, people who live, work and farm in the Valley contribute the least to the problem. And yet we must deal with the impacts on local health and the environment. Deciding to incinerate is plainly a step backward.” The FVRD will now appeal to Penner to remove incineration from Metro’s waste plan.
Both men knew the crash could have been worse several accidents. Last year he lost a friend when a helicopter crashed in the Fraser River near Lillooet while fighting another fire. “Unfortunately, it’s part of the business,” said Maas. “It’s not a glamorous business. We do a very serious job and it’s not nice to get news like this.” With both pilots out of hospital, Transwest and Transport Canada officials will hope to deter mine the cause of the crash. It has been reported that the helicopter suffered a loss of power shortly before the crash. The extreme conditions of high altitude, heat and a heavy load of fire
retardant may have taxed the machine, said Alison Maas, Ernst’s wife and coowner of Transwest, shortly after the incident. The helicopter that crashed was one of two Transwest choppers fighting the Jade fire in the Yalakom Valley. Ernst Maas s a i d f i re f i g h t i n g i s h i s company’s specialty, with the helicopters frequently deployed across Western Canada and, during winter, to Australia. One helicopter is still working on the Lillooet fire while the company’s remaining machine is in Hope on standby with the B.C. Forest Service.

A summer taste of band BY CORNELIA NAYLOR email@example.com
T C D MAIN
Band teacher Barry Eggen conducts his Grade 8/9 summer band at Friday’s school district summer learning program wind-up. ing grant, each student in the program started off every day with a healthy breakfast snack. “I can’t even tell you how many pounds of bananas or oranges we purchased over the summer time,” said Soon, who estimates the program spent about $650 to $700 on fruit. At the end of both twoweek elementary school sessions, students also enjoyed pancake breakfasts at which trustees Heather Maahs and Martha Wiens and assistant superintendent Michael Audet flipped their share of flapjacks. For the first time, Youth Services was on hand at Vedder middle every day running the Youth Services room where at-risk youth in the summer learning program
and from the community could have lunch and stay for activities organized by school-based youth support workers Greg Hodson and Brenda Listoen. Between eight to 12 youths took in the program and enjoyed trips to Cultus Lake, the Stanley Park sea wall, Playland, hikes to places like Teapot Hill and other activities around town. The youth program, which continues to the end of August at Youth Services on Victoria Avenue, is designed to dovetail with kids’ school experiences come fall. “A lot of those kids, now that we have a connection with them, when they go into the middle school, they know someone; they have that person,” said Hodson.

wenty-four would-be Grade 6 musicians got their first taste of band last month at the Chilliwack school district’s summer learning program. The students were part of a new summer school course for Grade 6 students looking to go into Grade 7 band next year. “Usually when you’re starting something off, it takes a little while for it to catch on,” said acting summer learning vice-principal Galen Soon, “but the teacher who leads the program, Barry Eggen, has a very good reputation, so the word is out.” Eggen’s Grade 8/9 summer school band was centre stage on Friday at a wind-up concert at Vedder middle school. The summer learning the program, which ran from July 5 to July 30, continues to grow. Enrolment increased by 40 this year to a total of 473 students. With the addition of the Music 7 Preview class, the number of courses available to Grade 1 to Grade 9 is now at 40. The courses were run by 16 teachers with help from one UFV practicum student and five parent volunteers. With a Breakfast for Learn-

School summer makeover
rom pumping grease traps in the Sardis secondary kitchen to installing new lights in the Unsworth elementary gym, summer maintenance and upgrading projects around the Chilliwack school district are in full swing. Besides large capital projects like the new Rosedale elementary/middle and Yarrow elementary, which aren’t slated for completion until next summer, the district is busy with a host of minor jobs that need to be done by September. These range from converting regular classrooms into kindergarten classrooms for the first wave of full-day kindergarteners this fall to roofing projects at East Chilliwack, Cheam, Tyson and Robertson. Cultus Lake, McCammon and Sardis elementary schools are slated for playground installations, and a portable is being moved
to East Chilliwack. Grass is being cut, landscape beds are being cleaned and parking lots are being swept. All told, the summer projects are worth about $1.5 million according to estimates by secretary treasurer Ray Velestuk at the last school board meeting. About $1 million will come from the district’s annual facilities grant while the remaining $500,000 will come out of operating funds. Last summer maintenance and upgrades were slowed when the province cancelled the annual facilities grants leaving the Chilliwack district with a $2 million gap for smaller capital projects. Half the grant was restored in March leaving the district with $1 million for projects this summer.

Strahl is human but wrong I like politicians. There, I said it. As a reporter I’ve met or talked to a plethora of local, civic politicians, a handful of provincial and federal representatives, and one or two national figures (although no present or past party leaders). Almost uniformly they have revealed themselves to be real, living people. The first two politicians I personally interviewed underscored this. I was in journalism school at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops and writing a story about the B.C. Liberal government’s prolific advertising scheme. I interviewed an NDP partisan who was upset about the issue, and then I called Kevin Krueger, a Kamloops MLA, to get his side of the story. It was a contentious issue, punctuated by Krueger’s use of an expletive to describe what he thought of the partisan’s argument. Shortly thereafter, on a Friday morning during which I had no class, my phone rang, jarring me awake. Shaking the cobwebs out, I picked up the handset and listened as Carole James, the NDP leader, introduced herself. Now James, as a political leader has several flaws, a fairly prominent one being the inability to
Be Our Guest win an election. It’s entirely possible that inability is connected to the fact that she was calling back (and waking up!) first-year journalism students who didn’t really expect to talk to the woman who could be premier. I don’t remember much about the phone call, but I do know that those two interactions with James and Krueger left me with the strong impression that political leaders are more than names on a ballot. They’re people too, as someone might say. They get angry and swear, and they can lower themselves to talk to an ignorant college student for an article that will be seen by his parents and professors and few others. Which brings me to Chuck Strahl, a man everybody seems to love and one who has made remarkably few enemies for a politician. Unfortunately, a deep knowledge of statistical analysis and an ability to connect with constituents are, possibly, mutually exclusive traits. Strahl’s column in this space last
week demonstrated both aspects. Others have already written why an optional long-form census is useless. (The short reason is that it makes the census self-selecting. It will tell us less about Canadians and more about Canadians Who Feel They Should Return The Census, a group that will be older, be more likely to vote, and have more free time than the population at large.) But I can excuse Strahl because he’s human. Perhaps he has a homework assignment from his boss to pump up the census. Probably, he actually believes his flawed, but persuasively-written argument. Either way, he’s a person. For the same reason, I’ve grown tired of those who rant about the nefarious schemes of George Bush or Stephen Harper or Jack Layton or Barry Penner. They’re all politicians. And they all deserve to have their opinions parsed, criticized and, if necessary, rejected. But they’re also people and, as long as they don’t use their position for personal gain, as long as they think they’re helping their constituents, and as long as they still have human emotions, I’ll continue to roll my eyes when people declare all politicians to be scum. Even if their policies sometimes do smell.
hen you build an energy plant you need fuel. Constantly, consistently and for the entire life of that plant. Coal-fired plants need coal. Nuclear reactors need plutonium or uranium. Hydroelectric dams need water. Photovoltaic panels need the sun. And the half-billion dollar garbage incineration plant the regional district of Metro Vancouver now will consider building will always need garbage. Tonnes and tonnes and tonnes of it. So the Metro decision to approve a waste management plan that, on the one hand, sets “zero waste” goals and, on the other hand, drools at the purported profits from burning garbage in a plant that will need a constant supply makes little sense. Then there are the NIMBY concerns of Chilliwack MLA John Les and Mayor Sharon Gaetz with which we couldn’t agree more. No one should have to put up with garbage burning in their back yard or, in this case, their neighbour’s back yard. But now that Metro has predictably decided to do just that, the waste plan goes to the Environment Minister for approval. That minister, of course, is our own Chilliwack-Hope MLA Barry Penner who, to put it mildly, is now in a bit of a pickle. How, as a Fraser Valley MLA, can Penner approve a decision so broadly loathed by residents, politicians, chambers of commerce and just about everyone in the Fraser Valley? But how can he reject Metro’s plan without at least appearing to have a conflict of interest given his constituency’s point of view? Metro’s CAO Johnny Carline said Friday that Penner must make his decision based on scientific information and not as MLA for Chilliwack-Hope. We hope Penner decides based on the scientific information that says garbage incineration is potentially harmful to health. Then he’ll please Chilliwack too.

Intersection way too dangerous
Editor: This is not your average complaint about traffic. It’s about one man’s effort to save the life of someone’s son, or spouse, or other beloved person. I pray I’m wrong, but believe that a traumatic fatal accident will occur at the Cultus Lake road where it merges joining the Yarrow road. Two weeks ago, my wife stated—in quite frightened tones—that a dump truck was barrelling down the hill from Cultus and she thought both her and my son were dead. There was nowhere to go, stopped at the red light heading west. The truck barely made the sharp corner. A week later, I’m entering the same intersection from the east at a sedate pace. Green light for us, looks fine. I most definitely had the right of way. A truck with a large RV behind was roaring down the same road the dump truck did, and barged into the intersection a half second before I hit the brakes. A split second later, there would likely have been fatalities. Likely us. There is simply too steep a grade, too blind a corner and too much heavy traffic trying to merge onto the one-lane road there heading towards Chilliwack. I doubt this is the first complaint, but hopefully the last. We can’t prevent poor drivers, but we can certainly try to mitigate their potential to

create disaster by making one of the most used intersections in the Fraser Valley safer. This is a call to action. Prevent carnage before it happens. It’s a very dangerous intersection right now. Scott Stephenson
Stolen garden ornaments Editor: Did someone bring you a nice miniature rose already transplanted to a white pot? Or a planter shaped like a cat, full or snapdragons? How about eight solar butterflies that change colour, or two lilies with hovering hummingbirds? If they did, I’d like you to know they were stolen from my patio on Monday night. My daughter gave me the cat planter for Mother’s Day and the rose for July 1st. I bought the solar lights so my 91year-old mother would have
something pretty to look at and the regular solar lights so I could see my sidewalk at night. I guess they had too much to carry as the second miniature rose was on the sidewalk and the gate was open. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did but the police have a file number for them. L. Phillips Chilliwack
More HST anger and disgust Editor: Some interesting facts about the HST have recently come to my attention. The HST is being applied to the mandatory recycling fee on plastic juice bottles. The 12-per-cent HST is actually six-tenths of one cent rounded up to one cent. Believe it. We received our (spouse
and mine) quarterly tax refund cheque, with details as follows: GST/HST: $62.50 x 2 = $125. Tax free—no deductions. B.C. carbon tax: $26.25 x 2 = $52.50. Tax free—no deductions. B.C. HST $57.50 x 2 = $115. Tax free—subject to deductions on income levels over $25,000. Our $115.00 credit is reduced in the amount of $52.13 leaving $62.87. I call this a blatant “clawback” of credit due. I have expressed my feelings to the office of my MLA John Les. More disgust and anger: I purchased a bottle of doctor-prescribed, 81-mg, daily, low-dose aspirin used as preventive therapy for heart and stroke patients. Believe it, 12-percent HST is applied to this life-saving medication. This is disgusting and disrespectful to people who need this medication. More disgust and anger: Under the secondary headline captioned with pictures of our two smiling MLAs, John Les and Barry Penner is this quote, “MLAs boast that our HST is the lowest in Canada.” Duh? Need I say more? I feel the B.C. Liberals have the morals of a polecat. We will not forget. Roll on 2013. Doug Kerr Chilliwack

SOUTH SUMAS ROAD CONSTRUCTION
To meet the demand for electricity and improved reliability, BC Hydro will be constructing a new duct bank system along South Sumas Road. This work will result in temporary trafﬁc delays from the beginning of August 2010 to the end of October 2010. The construction route will be as follows: M
begin along the west shoulder of Vedder Road near the corner of Vedder and South Sumas
continue west along South Sumas Road to Lickman Road
continue south along Lickman Road to the Atchelitz substation 2406
Work crews will be on site from 7:00 am to 9:00 pm Monday to Saturday. BC Hydro recognizes the inconvenience that this construction may cause and will complete the work as safely and efﬁciently as possible.
Bruins 2010/11 schedule
Starts with back-toback road games
he Chilliwack Bruins unveiled their tentative regular season schedule for the upcoming campaign last week and announced that Ryan Howse and company will launch their quest for junior hockey glory in Vancouver. The Bruins start their season with back-to-back road games against the Giants on Sept. 24 and against the Kamloops Blazers the following day. The team then returns to the Prospera Centre to play their home opener against the Blazers on Oct. 2, a Saturday. That game will be a tribute to First Nations and will feature the debut of a new third jersey. “We’re very pleased with the schedule,” said Bruins marketing director Barry Douglas. “Of our 36 home dates, 26 will be played on weekends including 13 Saturday games. All six Sunday games, with 5 p.m. starts, will once again be Family Fun Nights.” Of note this year, the Bruins have pushed back the start time of seven Friday night games to 7:30 p.m.
“After getting feedback from our fan base, we feel that starting the Friday games a little later will give more people a chance to get to the game on time,” said Douglas. Having journeyed to Saskatchewan last year, the Bruins avoid a long road trip across the prairies this year. Marc Habscheid’s crew will hit the road in December for a five-stop trip through Alberta. Players will return for Christmas before finding their seats on the bus for another long ride to Prince George in late December Last year, the Bruins enjoyed their most successful season ever on the ice, but off the ice attendance lagged, dropping into the lower half of the Western Hockey League rankings. They’ll hope that an older team translates to more wins and more enthusiasm among the local fan base. The Bruins will once again play a Remembrance Day home game against the Vancouver Giants, wearing a special one-time jersey. Other holiday home games include a tilt against the Prince Albert Raiders on Thanksgiving Monday and a New Years Eve shindig with the Moose Jaw Warriors. Season ticket packages for all 36 games are now on sale. Prices start at $199 for youths and seniors and $299 for adults. Half-season packages are also available.

Your BC Lions — In Their Own Words I’m a B.C. boy – born and raised in Richmond. I began playing football while attending high school at Vancouver College and continued to develop my skills during my university career at Simon Fraser. I have been a fan of the Black and Orange all my life and distinctly remember attending Lions games at BC Place in the 1980s. My brother Mark was brieﬂy a Lion in 1990 – so football genes deﬁnitely run in my family! After 10 seasons with the Lions, I still can’t believe that I get to come to work every day and play the game I love, and I’m more determined than ever to bring the Grey Cup home to B.C. at least one more time during my career. As one of the longest-serving veterans on the team and the guy anchoring the offensive line in the centre position, I take a leadership role in the locker room and am sometimes looked to for advice by the younger players. Our team — and the O-line in particular — is like a family to me and I’m proud of my contributions in the locker room and on the ﬁeld. As the second-youngest of six kids in my family, I looked up to my older siblings when I was growing up for inspiration and guidance. For that reason, I love taking part in the Lions’ community programs throughout the year, particularly the club’s Lions in the House initiative. It makes me feel proud to know that I could have a positive inﬂuence on a young person who is at a very important time in their life. As much as I love playing professional football, I believe it’s also important to give back to the community you grew up in and set a good example for the next generation. Angus Reid in action.

Ag pride out front at 138th Ex C
rafts are being completed, pies are being prepared and sheep are being sheared. The Chilliwack Exhibition, one of the Lower Mainland’s largest agricultural events drawing more than 20,000 people annually, is just around the corner. Starting with the open dairy heifer competition at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, Aug. 6 and closing with the rodeo on Sunday, Aug. 8 in the afternoon, the city’s agricultural past and present will be proudly on display. This year the fair will be officially opened by local Olympians David Ford and Kelly VanderBeek at 6 p.m.
But with the midway, music, art, and local culture on display, the 2010 fair has much more to offer
on Friday before the rodeo. The 2010 Chilliwack Exhibition also hosts the largest 4-H show in B.C. attended by approximately 350 young people from across the province. The 4-H youth have great displays and are eager to show off their dairy, beef, sheep, llamas, horses, dogs and rabbits. This year, there is a special treat as the exhibition is host to the 2010 West National Goat Show. The country kids adventure zone continues to grow with a petting zoo, a sow and piglets, baby chick display, farmer-for-a-day, children’s entertainer Rosie Ribbonstar, gold panning with Yukon Dan and fun 4-H displays. The home and garden displays in building one are always a hit as residents enter competitions for photography, art, and hobbies as well as garden produce, flowers, home baking and preserves, needlework and quilting and much more. The Orphaned Wildlife (OWL) Rehabilitation Centre will have a display with birds of prey the public can
see on Saturday from 10:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Another unique display will be the B.C. Dairy in the Classroom trailer outside, which will feature four daily demonstrations on how a cow is milked, a climbing wall, a food court and the 89.5 the Hawk/Tractorgrease studio stage with music from local artists from noon to 5 p.m. (except during rodeo on Sunday) and from 8:30 to 11 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Next to the fair grounds at the Atchelitz Threshermen’s Site will be the always-popular Westcoast Axemen Logging show, antique tractor shows and ongoing displays of antique farming equipment. And don’t forget, Chiliwack Rodeo Association hosts the B.C. Rodeo Association rodeo, rated as the top in B.C. and, of course, the midway provides fun and games for everyone. ! Check out www.chilliwackexhibition.com for full exhibition information for Aug. 6, 7 and 8. File/TIMES
The Chilliwack Exhibition will be full of wonder as it hosts the largest 4-H show in B.C. attended by approximately 350 young people.

10 years of Cultus Lake’s Saturday Market in the Park Popular long-running event combines farmer, flea and craft market into one
BY CORNELIA NAYLOR email@example.com
he Cultus Lake Saturday Market in the Park is gearing up to celebrate its 10th anniversary. From humble beginnings, this combination farmers, flea and craft market has grown into a much-anticipated summertime tradition. “I’ve got people phoning me in January asking me when the market’s starting,” said market manager Lorna Griffeth with a laugh. The weekly event attracts vendors from all over the Fraser Valley, and on sunny Saturdays more than 1,000 people have been known to peruse the booths looking for everything from fresh produce to used books.
In 10 years the market, organized by Cultus Lake Community Association (CLCA) volunteers, has seen the number of vendors grow from about 10 to as many as 45. “When we first started off people didn’t even know we were there,” said Griffeth. “Once they caught on to what we were doing and why we were doing it, they supported us wholeheartedly.” The market was originally conceived as a way to attract people to the plaza and the first few events were held in the parking lot there, but sweltering heat soon drove it to its current location under the trees in the park
behind the bumper boats and Eagle Ridge golf course. With live music offered from about 11 a.m. to noon, Saturdays in the park take on a bit of a medieval-fair feel. The musicians are usually Chilliwackarea high school students, and this year’s performers are double bass and classical guitar duo Thomas Powell and Luan Fung in July and Sax Appeal, a saxophone quartet made up of Shane Monkman, Trischa Buhler, Teigan Cosgrove and Lee Whitehorne, in August. The market is a hub of social activity eve-
ry weekend throughout the summer, but for the CLCA, which has an information booth set up there every week, it’s also a great way to tell people about everything Cultus Lake has to offer. The market further supports the community by generating funds – through vendors’ fees – for beautification projects like the hanging baskets in the plaza and the concrete planters in front of the community hall. To celebrate its 10 years in the community, the Aug. 7 event will feature free cake or cupcakes, balloons, giveaways and fun activities. The market officially runs every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., but some vendors start selling earlier. The last day of the market is Sept. 4.
Keep the numbers of these locally owned businesses on hand for all of your services and shopping needs.

Watering in hot weather a must Q: Could you provide any advice as to the quantity and frequency of watering newlyplanted cedars and a maple tree in our backyard. Josephine Burnaby A: In this weather, water them lots! Cedars are moisture lovers. Summer isn’t a good time to plant cedars and a heat wave can cause them immense problems. If your cedars are a newly-planted hedge, watering them by hand-held hose could take an enormous amount of time and water. With soaker hoses, you can run water at a very low level for a long time and gradually the moisture will soak down to the roots. If you prefer hand-held hose watering, I’d suggest holding the stream for at least 30 seconds morning and evening by each tree. Mulching the cedars would help hold moisture in. When rainy weather returns, you should still water your cedars once a day. You should be able to quit this routine by early November but drought can happen any time of year. Maples aren’t as waterdemanding as cedars, but because yours is newlyplanted it would be best to treat it exactly the same. Q: Something eats the flowers, buds and leaves in my garden. I have lots of slug visitors but I control them with slug bait. Whatever eats my plants can climb tall flowers, climbing roses and even eats the nasturtium leaves on my balcony. I have lots of little
Green Thumb ants and grey critters which roll into balls when they feel threatened. Do any of these eat plants? Heidi e-mail A: Ants, sow-bugs and pillbugs don’t eat the top part of plants. You may have several different pests eating different parts of your flowers. Perhaps your slugs aren’t controlled as much as you think. Snails do similar damage and climb very high at times. Urban areas now include raccoons, skunks, rats, squirrels and coyotes. Squirrels, rabbits and chipmunks all nibble on plants if they need moisture. Deer sometimes invade s u b u r b a n g a rd e n s a n d mature ones can reach at least six feet high. About your nasturtiums: if the damage is only edge notches, the culprits could be vine weevils or leaf-cutting wasps. Slugs or snails eat holes in the middle of the leaf as well. If you go out at night with a flashlight, you could check what beasties are among your plants. Don’t look casually, scan the soil surface, lift leaves and check underneath. !
