Two teens charged in Yarrow school fire Molotov cocktails used to start multiple fires

Grandfather ‘flattened’ during violent attack that saw 12-yearold boy abducted



wo teenagers have been charged with starting a fire that damaged Yarrow elementary school and an adjacent portable that housed a daycare centre. Eighteen-year-old Aaron Toka of Yarrow, and 19-year-old Taylor Neilson, of Aldergrove, have both been charged with arson. They have been released from jail, with multiple conditions, and are scheduled to reappear in Chilliwack provincial court Sept. 14. Toka and Neilson are accused of using Molotov cocktails to start multiple fires around the school in the early morning hours of Aug. 17. The fire caused an estimated $200,000 in damage to the school property. “This type of crime is simply not tolerable and the police wish to thank the public who provided information that aided in this investigation,” said RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Lea-Anne Dunlop. As for the damaged school, both it and the day care should be ready for students come next week, according to school district superintendent Corinne McCabe. “We will be back in business for school opening next week,” she told the Times on Monday. “They’re just working out the details on the replacement portable and there has been considerable work done inside the school to deal with water damage and to deal with external damage from the fire.” Repairs to the school’s gymnasium have been taking place faster than expected, with the floor being lifted and dried.

One of hundreds of anglers brings in a sockeye salmon on the Fraser River in Chilliwack on Friday. BY PAUL J. HENDERSON


s millions of sockeye salmon make their way up the Fraser River, hundreds of sport fishermen—or “sporties”—who can’t get enough of the bounty line the banks of the river and haul in the once-in-a-lifetime return one by one. The hottest spot around seems to be Peg Leg bar accessed off McSween road where more than 100 men, women and children

were shoulder to shoulder in just one short section Friday afternoon. The sportsfishing protocol of yelling “fish on” was rendered nearly irrelevant as there was nearly always a fish on someone’s line. One after another, an angling ballet was on display as a fisherman (or woman) who had hooked a fish moved down the queue under some lines, over and behind others, to land the salmon in a calm shoreline spot.

1 2 - ye a r- o l d C h i l l i w a c k b oy returned home safe and sound Sunday evening, just hours after his violent abduction prompted a rare Amber Alert and a valleywide search. Police say the boy’s father, paternal grandfather and another relative stormed into the Second Avenue home of the boy’s maternal grandparents at around 1 p.m. The three men assaulted the grandparents and kidnapped the boy, who cannot be named under a publication ban expected to be issued Monday. “I just got flattened and then I had two more guys on top of me, all three of them beating on me, pulling my wife’s hair, punching her, choking her, as well as me,” the maternal grandfather told a Global BC TV crew that evening. “In the meantime, [the boy] is screaming.” RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Lea-Anne Dunlop said that at the time of the incident, the boy was scheduled to be in the care of his grandparents. The grandparents sustained minor injuries in the incident but were able to give a description of the men to police, who then

Upfront Briefly

Aggressive driving ends with crash A 25-year-old man was hospitalized after crashing his car into a light pole and fence on Evans Road Monday morning. Police say the driver, who was the lone occupant of the car and is from Chilliwack, lost control near Knight Road. He was airlifted to hospital with serious, but non-life-threatening injuries. Evans Road was closed for two hours while police carried out their investigation. Police say aggressive driving and speed appear to be factors in the crash. At least one witness saw the car driving down Evans Road in the opposing lane at a high rate of speed.

Easy to put salmon on your plate

Nothing to fear when it comes to buying fish from reserves BY PAUL J. HENDERSON


he sockeye salmon are running in record numbers and those with a fishing licence and a rod can pretty well count on dinner. The tastiest of salmon can also be found at some local stores, including, of course, The Docks seafood shop where a whole fish is selling for about $9 a pound. But one of the real hot spots to grab a fresh fish is on the Skowkale Reserve on Chilliwack River Road.

Paul J. Henderson/TIMES

Anglers have been shoulder to shoulder on the Fraser River for the past few days as record sockeye numbers had smiles on everyone’s face. And for anyone who is unsure about the legality of pulling up to a hand-

drawn sign and a few locals with a bin of fish on ice and a garbage bag to put

them in, don’t worry—it’s legal. Member bands of the Sto:lo Nation and the Sto:lo Tribal Council fish in various locations in the Fraser River from Mission all the way up to Yale in the Fraser Canyon. Since the 1990s some of those bands that participate in the economic opportunity fishery are allowed to sell those fish to the public under agreements reached with the Department of Fisheries and Oceans. Last week, Mike Dunston was selling fish as fast as he could pick them up and put them in bags for customers at the Chilliwack River Road location. “These will be gone tonight,” Dunston said on Friday of the two bins with an estimated 400 fish between them. The fish were selling for $15 each and Dunston estimated they were all See SALMON, Page 21

1994 Williams gets the boot

School board superintendent Ray Williams, who had been under investigation by the school board since October 1993, was released from his contract in April of 1994. The board decided to fire Williams over what they called his “dishonesty” in regards to his education credentials. Because he was dismissed with just cause there was no severance package or any “pay out,” said then school board chair Alan Davis.

Prisoners help with fire fight




ozens of prisoners—including some from Ford Mountain Institution in Chilliwack—are helping battle forest fires across B.C. by setting up work camps, packing equipment and repairing fire hoses. Corrections officials say putting the inmates to work benefits taxpayers and prisoners. “It’s a win-win, because it’s providing valuable assistance out in the field for those on the front lines fighting these fires, but it also gives our inmates some really valuable work experience,” said Marnie Mayhew, spokeswoman for B.C. Corrections. Inmates at Nanaimo Correctional Centre clean, test and repair up to 60,000 soot-covered hoses during the fire season. This season is the worst of the past dozen years, with 290,000 hectares of land scorched so far. The prisoners earn between $1.50 and $9 per day. Hoses are put through a machine that soaks them in a soap solution, scrubs them with brushes and rinses them with a high-pressure spray. If a leak is detected, inmates apply a cement solution, normally used to repair tires, to repair it. NCC pioneered the method. The program has become so successful that another greenhouse used to dry out the hoses is being constructed to expand capacity. This will boost the number of hoses dried every day by 225 to about 650. The expansion is expected to be done by the fall. The hose maintenance program has been running since the early 1990s with 20-25 inmates working in the crew on any given day. But once the fire season is over—and all the hoses are trucked into NCC for cleaning— the inmates will be really swamped. Ford Mountain Correctional Centre in Chilliwack also has a smaller hosecleaning program, in addition to doing maintenance on firefighting tools and water tanks used by helicopters.

City still angling for ultimate fishing title


iven the bounty of sockeye salmon in recent days, many might call Chilliwack the ultimate fishing town. But the city looks like a longshot to take the “official” title as a World Fishing Network TV contest searches for the Ultimate Fishing Town. The contest voting began Aug. 17 and ends Sept. 1 at 2 p.m. As of Monday afternoon, Chilliwack was ranked fifth in the west region with 3,600 votes. But since Port Alberni had 42,733 votes and Dauphin,

Man. had 41,808, a last minute comeback doesn’t look likely. However, there is a wildcard spot that Chilliwack could grab and still be eligible for the $25,000 prize and h a 30-minute TV program made about the city’s fishing. “Having made sure that Chilliwack was nominated to be in the running, our next priority is to see if we can get Chilliwack into the Top 10 and that final round of voting,” said Brian Coombes, executive director of Tourism Chilliwack.

Full inquiry still the only answer BY JUDITH LAVOIE Vancouver Sun


irst Nations leaders say they must be a key part of any investigation into the bungled investigation of serial killer Robert Pickton to make sure a similar tragedy never happens again. Aboriginal groups pushing for a full-fledged public inquiry say victims and witnesses in the case were ignored because they were aboriginal or poor. They say they’re skeptical about claims by the B.C. government and the Vancouver Police Department that a similar situation could not happen today because of changes that have been implemented. “I wonder if it is still happening today. Look at the Highway of Tears, from Prince George to Edmonton, where there are all those missing women and a good number of them are First Nations,” said Grand Chief Doug Kelly, chairman of the First Nations Health Council and Sto:lo Tribal Council chief for intergovernmental affairs. Young women, most of them aboriginal, have been disappearing or have been found murdered since 1988 along the so-called Highway of Tears, a 720-kilometre stretch of Highway 16 from Alberta through B.C. Pickton, a pig farmer from the Vancouver suburb of Port Coquitlam, was charged with the murders of 26 women— many of them former residents of the city’s Downtown

Eastside—and convicted in December 2007 of seconddegree murder in six of those cases. Housing Minister Rich Coleman, speaking on behalf of the government last week, said there will be a “transparent review” of the Pickton investigation. The provincial government cabinet will decide next month whether that should take the form of a public inquiry or a judicial review. A report on the investigation by Vancouver Police Department Deputy Chief Doug LePard documented mistakes made by that force and the RCMP. It concluded that police had compelling evidence against Pickton by August 1999, but failed to act until more than two years later. During that time, 14 more women died. Kelly is calling for Aboriginal Affairs Minister George Abbott to convene a round table of First Nations leaders, RCMP and Vancouver police representatives, and government ministers to look at how to change policing practices and management. “Our leadership and citizens want an opportunity to engage all of the senior officials in a dialogue that results in a strategy for change and renewal in policing and provides for the safety and well being of our communities,” Kelly said in a letter to Abbott. Assembly of First Nations National Chief Shawn Atleo has already called for a public inquiry.

Local woman drowns


67-year-old Chilliwack woman drowned in a Saskatchewan lake Sunday. Mounties say the woman drowned in Chitek Lake, about 180 kilometres northwest of Prince Albert. Police and paramedics

were called to the lake just before noon after a bystander had taken the unconscious woman from the water. The investigation is continuing but police do not suspect foul play. A name has not been released.

“Sportfishing is a significant contributor to B.C.’s economy, generating over $480 million in revenue spent on equipment, travel and accommodation and related supplies,” according to a 2005 study by the Freshwater Fisheries Society of BC. “Whether it’s our world-famous Pacific salmon runs, steelhead fishing on the Vedder River, fishing for trout in a crystal clear mountain lake or the opportunity to catch and release a mighty Fraser River sturgeon, we believe Chilli-

wack offers anglers who visit here repeatedly from all over the world, a unique and diverse fishing experience set amongst our spectacular scenery,” said Coombes. At the end of 2009, with the support of Tourism British Columbia and the Vancouver Coast and Mountains marketing organization, Tourism Chilliwack launched “Fish Chilliwack,” a sport fishing co-operative marketing program. This includes www.fishchilliwack. com, a comprehensive sport fishing web portal for Chilliwack.

Used to promote Chilliwack as the ultimate fishing destination, online and at tradeshows, the site has become popular with anglers from all over the world, looking for fishing information and planning vacations in Chilliwack.

Conservation officer behind eagle feather sting operation now facing his own charges

he senior British Columbia conservation officer whose undercover investigations led to dozens of charges against First Nations men for trafficking in eagle parts now faces criminal intention of dropping the charges against Abbott, Leon or any of the charges of his own. Rick Grindrod served about 15 First Nations men charged. “This is the first time I’ve ever years as a conservation officer and instigated a number of undercov- seen, in Canadian legal history, an er operations that led to the high- attorney general using testimony profile charges, including against of a discredited peace officer to Chehalis band members Gary prosecute somebody,” said George Wool, lawyer for Abbott and Ralph Abbott, Leon and Leon. “If this was a bunch of four other men.

“I don’t know that I would want to generalize it is the case that every time a peace officer faces allegations invariably results in a stay of proceedings,” Neil MacKenzie told the Times. “Ultimately it will be for the court to decide.” That response infuriates Grand Chief Doug Kelly of the Sto:lo Tribal Council. “[Crown counsel] are in a conflict of interest,” he told the Times. “The Crown is relying on Grindrod and his evidence to convict Coast Salish artisans and, on the other hand, the Crown counsel is going up against Grindrod saying he ought to be convicted.” The charges against Abbott and Leon date back to April 2006 when 11 First Nations men were charged with a total of 105 offences related to unlawful possession of dead wildlife, trafficking in dead wildlife and other related offences. According toWool, the conservation service engaged in a massive undercover operation in which See FEATHERS, Page 19

Gary Abbott—picture here performing a traditional hoop dance at Party in the Park in Chilliwack in 2009—thinks eagle parts trafficking and possession charges against him should be dropped now that the conservation officer behind the investigation faces criminal charges of his own.

◗ Opinion

Tamils being met with racism T

he following scenario is purely imaginary. After a months-long sea crossing in a leaky converted freighter, more than 400 people from a nation wracked by terrorism and civil war land on Canada’s shores. They immediately claim refugee status. They come from a country that has seen a long and violent conflict. They are essentially on the losing side. They worry about further violence if they return home. While many of those on board are women and children, some may be members of a foreign terrorist organization. What does our government do? That depends. My imaginary boat comes from Northern Ireland, circa 1985. But it may have called to mind a boat that just arrived on our shores from Sri Lanka. I’m having a hard time imagining a boat of English-speaking white Irish Catholics getting the same vicious reception that the Tamils have received since they arrived. The level of racism in the debate over the Tamils is hard to measure. It’s veiled behind rhetoric about refugees “jumping the queue” and talk about them becoming freeloaders on Canada’s welfare system. The terrorism charge is the one the government has jumped on with both feet. Apparently, to have ever been a member of or soldier for the Liberation Tigers of Tamil


Be Our Guest Eelam is to be a terrorist. Of course, theTamilTigers committed a great many terrorist crimes, including pioneering the use of suicide bombing. (That’s where the Palestinian Intifada got the idea.) They also committed political assassinations, both in Sri Lanka and in India.TheTigers also forcibly conscripted children, attacked religious targets, and engaged in piracy and arms smuggling. But they ran a good portion of northeastern Sri Lanka as a de facto independent country for decades. So the Tamil Tigers organization contains vicious monsters, and it also contains people who worked for the monsters and looked the other way so they and their families could survive. That the Sri Lankan government might not make fine distinctions between the two types of Tigers is a legitimate concern. So there may be terrorists on board the boat, and they should be found and deported to face justice for their crimes. But like determining who in Northern Ireland is an IRA bomber, who an IRA sup-

porter, and who an accomplice out of fear, it will not be easy. The odd notion that the Tamil migrants are trying to jump the queue should also be discarded. As Stephen Hume pointed out in a recent Vancouver Sun column, there are two routes to becoming a refugee in Canada: you can get there from a refugee camp, or you can show up and say you would suffer persecution if returned home. The Sri Lankan government has been dismantling refugee camps since the war ended; it’s an open question whether persecution has ceased, and one that will likely determine the refugees’ fate. Finally, the notion of freeloading is also interesting. A lot of fury has surrounded the idea that these are only “economic migrants,” that they just want a better life, with things like clean water, good jobs, and nice homes. Well, how dare they! Those things are clearly for those of us who were already here and inherited them without doing a lick of work settling this country. But of course, perhaps I’m biased. Aside from the recent arrivals from America, none of my family members ever applied for permission to come to Canada. I don’t think they ever asked the Sto: lo, Algonquin, Six Nations, or Cree people for immigration forms. ◗ Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the Langley Advance.

n a world of shifting enterprises and quick-change business assets, reaching a 40-year milestone is a significant accomplishment. It’s even more significant when the public’s perception of the type of business being conducted has changed dramatically—and not necessarily in a positive way—over those four decades. Of course, shifting public perception over the treatment of animals—and particularly “wild” animals in captivity —hasn’t been the only hurdle that the Greater Vancouver Zoo has had to overcome to reach its 40th anniversary as one of Langley’s, and certainly Aldergrove’s, pre-eminent tourist attractions. There have been controversies to fuel the flames of public perception—eagerly fanned by animal rights activists—particularly in the zoo’s more recent history. There was the matter of a suitable enclosure for Hazina the Hippo, a project that seemed to go on interminably, until charges were laid—and then dropped at about the time it became clear that the ever-stretching timeline collapsed and the fine, new facilities came into being. There was longtime favourite Tina the Elephant’s deteriorating condition, finally relieved by her removal to a more suitable facility in the United States—but too late, as she died not long after her arrival there. There were positive points, too, like the zoo’s involvement in saving endangered species like the Oregon spotted frog. The zoo’s tourism dollars boost the local economy, and there is no denying some educational—alongside the entertainment—value for children (of all ages) to see live wild animals up close, even if wild behaviour may not come with package for many species kept in captivity. For some activists it has been 40 years too long… but as long as thousands continue to flock to the zoo, and as long as watchful eyes ensure that the animals are treated well, it will remain a significant part of the regional business community.

er park, Times, Aug. 27. Thanks, Mr. Henderson, for your well-written article. A few years ago in Langley I challenged the Langley paper to no longer refer to parks such as the one mentioned in the article above as “trailer parks.” They courteously and willingly obliged. That term, especially since the inception of the Trailer Park Boys TV program, has become objectionably pejorative and indicates a form of “trashy” living. Trailers are vehicles that are pulled, or are capable of being pulled. The homes in most “trailer parks” have not been, nor will ever be moved once mobiled in. Some of these housing units are quarter of a million dollar plus, permanent fixtures, forming a small community in which people from all strata of society choose to live—as do my husband and I. It would be very much appreciated if the Chilliwack Times staff would please refrain from writing or using the negative term “trailer park” in reference to our chosen homes, but rather use “modular” or “manufactured” homes, as that is what they are. Perhaps one day we can, with your valued assistance, turn society’s attitude toward this form of community living into what it is, very much a positive. Many thanks for your consideration.

Transit needs overhaul Editor: Re: City needs to get transit wheels rolling, Chilliwack Times, Aug. 27. I sympathize with Louise Green on Fairfield Island whose son needs to attend classes at UFV in Sardis. I gave up on transit a couple years ago and got a second car, even if I wanted to be environmentally responsible. The drivers were great, but the bus routes or connections were terrible. I can’t understand the

planners’ fixation with an exchange on Main Street. Is there a reason for that, or is it just a convienent place for drivers to gather to be social. Look at a map. Chilliwack’s shape is a figureeight running north-south down Yale/Vedder road. If there is a tight budget for buses, the priority should be two buses starting at either end running back and forth from Little Mountain to UFV Sardis continuously from five in the morning until nine at night without having to transfer. That should be thought of as the main corridor for Chilliwack. Most people who work or need to attend a school, or go shopping at the mall will be adequately served by a route that only stops on Yale/Vedder Road. If two buses are all Chilliwack can afford, so be it. Servicing Yale/Vedder Road frequently would be more useful than the current system that loops around transfering to nothing useful. The majority of people can get to Yale/Vedder Road if they have to. If Chilliwack can afford a few more buses, then they can run them in east-west loops that cross over Yale/Vedder Road. Riders can get off the east-west buses and transfer onto the main north-south line on Yale/Vedder. Perhaps planners are trying to serve too many people by going to every corner of the city in little loops, instead of servicing the main corridor well. I shake my head when I see a near empty Fairfield Island bus pass by, knowing that more people would use it if it connected to a main line that was served frequently and went to the other side of the city. I imagine Louise Green’s son would be happier walking off Fairfield Island down to Yale Road if that got him on a bus that went close to where he needs to go. While that system would not be perfect, considering tight budgets, it would be better than what Chilliwack has now. David Brien Chilliwack

Editor: In response to Alexis Rowe’s letter dated Aug. 27 in the Chilliwack Times. She mentions she is outraged by a doctor refusing to prescribe birth control pills. It is not like not having birth control pills handy is a matter of life or death. It may be argued that is it more for life as birth control pills stop pregnancy. She mentions the doctor has no right to bring her morals into the clinic. The same could be said that a person has no right to ask anyone to compromise their morals or forcing their will on to others. So it is really a difference in beliefs that stood between Melissa and her doctor. Some people may argue that this is a great thing to come along, as we now are in the position to help to keep the population explosion under conttrol. Are we deciding then who should live and who should not live, when we throw abortion in along with everything else? We really need more doctors like the one Melissa went to, who isn’t afraid to stand up for what she believes. God bless her. Sylvia Commerford Chilliwack

Thank God for MDs with morals Editor: Re: “Outraged by doctor’s action,” Chilliwack Times Aug. 27. I thank God for doctors who still have morals. Abortion is a major moral issue that faces our society. Euthanasia is becoming more and more acceptable in our society. Our doctors are the ones who are again doing the killing; sorry, euthanasia. The bottom line is that it is also the doctor who signs the death certificate. Was the death really asked for (by the patient or greedy relatives), justified or even legal by all the guidelines we put in place? Can we really keep such a wonderful solution that cures every disease under control? It even cures cancer, every kind of cancer, HIV, even the common cold. Just one lethal injection and the problem is solved. The latest issue of the Canadian Medical Journal had an article concerned about the teaching of ethics to medical students. I wonder why? Maybe we do need morals in medicine after all. Maybe not your morals Alexis but some kind of strong morals to keep us powerful doctors under control! Dr.W.D. Gutowski Chilliwack

Editor: I am writing to say how disappointed I am that we as a society are letting our kids down. Over the summer I have seen many ways that we are doing so. The first is that there are really no programs or day camps for kids over the age of 12. I would pay for my son to have somewhere to go during the summer to hang out with his friends in a safe and fun environment and somewhere that runs for more than just two hours so when both parents are working they don’t need to make extra arrangements to get the kids there and back home. A great event that this does encompass is the Party in the Park. The kids can meet up and just hang out with little to no trouble. They can socialize with their friends and it is such a great thing not just for the kids but to bring Chilliwack together, I have been really impressed. But while at Party in the Park, I went to the SPCA booth and grabbed a volunteer form as we as a family want to go and help out. Only I was told that the kids had to be over the age of 18. We are not dropping off our kids and leaving. I know it is a liability reason, but we don’t hold kids or even adults liable for their actions. This is where we are letting the kids down. You walk down a trail or in a park and there are signs to keep you dog on a leash or you can get fined. You see people all the time with no leash and no one gets fined so why have signs up? Kids and adults break the law like breaking into houses, beating up people and the list goes on and what do they get—a slap on the hand. It is time to get together as a community and start raising our kids and teaching them that the rules are the rules and when not followed there will be consequences. We all complain but we never do anything to change it. I personally don’t want to live where the population is a bunch of pottymouth, thieving liars. It’s time to stand up and install the values and integrity into our children that will stick with them so they can pass it on to their children. Meredith Connelly Chilliwack

The Huskers were hammered 70-13 by the Victoria Rebels Saturday and saw their record drop to 0-6 on the year. Victoria is now 3-3. There were few bright spots Saturday for Chilliwack, as Victoria scored its first touchdown just four minutes in and never stopped scoring. The Rebels amassed a spectacular 644 yards of total net offence and held a 45-0 lead at halftime. Running back Sam Adu led the charge for Victoria, running for 239 yards and four touchdowns on 15 car-

ries. Rebels quarterback Nick Cobb was good through the air, completing half of his 24 passes for 304 yards. While the game was one to forget for most Huskers, veteran running back Ben Skerrett managed to put together his best game of the year. Skerrett compiled 362 all-purpose yards, of which 268 came from 11 kick-off returns, including one for 57 yards. Skerrett also rushed for a touchdown—one of six carries for 37 yards—and caught a 43-yard pass from Adann Hendrickson, who replaced starter Cory Prince. On defence Curtis Schindel led the way with four tackles. The Huskers have next weekend off. Their next game is on Sept. 12 in Kelowna against the Okanagan Sun.

CHILLIWACK BOARD OF EDUCATION We’re running for Welcome Back!

Silvia Dyck Chair

On behalf of the Chilliwack Board of Education, I would like to welcome everyone back for the 2010-11 school year. We are beginning this year with a balanced budget that allows all staff to focus solely on their work in serving the community’s students in their learning journey. Thanks to the hard work done by our school community last spring, the system should have stability for the coming years. As we focus on the goals of our Strategic Plan we will strive to increase graduation rates and to better prepare all students for opportunities after graduation. This fall services will be expanded to include full day Kindergarten for over 500 students. In addition to diverse and engaging programs at our neighbourhood schools, schools of choice and middle school hockey academy, we will be launching two new secondary academies for baseball and hockey. Through on-line learning at Fraser Valley Distance Education, the Continuing Education program at the Education Center, and the Apprenticeship program, we provide every student and adult with a variety of ways to access ongoing learning. Thank you for your continued support as partners in education. Best wishes for a successful year!

Sports SOCCER BOOTS ALL AROUND Photos by Paul J. Henderson/TIMES

The 26th annual Chilliwack Youth Soccer Tournament was held at various locations around the city on the weekend. In the U18 boys division (left) a member of the South Burnaby Metro Soccer Club (in green) tries to keep the ball from a member of the Canadian Rocks Sports Club from Surrey. The Surrey boys were the eventual tournament champions. In U17 girls action (below), teams from Williams Lake (blue) and Surrey faced off at Townsend Field. And the team that made one of the longest journeys, the Terrace Kermodeis (at right in blue), faced off against the Golden Ears Soccer Club from Maple Ridge in U14 action at Exhibition Stadium.

A late summer stairway to heaven

BY KRISTIAN RASMUSSEN Special to the Times


he rays of sunlight slice through the dense green in kaleidoscopic shape on the rocky ground. “This is so amazing,” comments Kwantlen marketing student, Linda Gerlach. The overpowering beauty of Vedder mountain’s ridge trail is not lost on Gerlach. The popular hiking route runs a shaded 11 kilometres (return trip) through mossy meadows and covered forest canopy. Gerlach, 21, is new to hiking in the Fraser Valley. “I can’t believe I have never been to this place, it’s like something out of Lord of the Rings.” Gerlach’s reaction is common among hikers who come to appreciate Vedder mountain’s earthy peacefulness. However, with the scenic beauty of the ridge trail requires an uphill sacrifice.

Vedder Mountain’s ridge trail like something out of Lord of the Rings

The trail marking post is three kilometres up from the gravel parking lot at the bottom of Parmenter Road. It is not recommended to drive up to the trailhead with anything less then a four-wheel-drive vehicle. The rocky road has mammoth-sized potholes and large culverts. So Gerlach must trudge the three kilometres uphill in the 32 C heat. The opening to the ridge trail finally offers some respite in a shaded cave of green. Even on the hottest days, the covering of the canopy offers the hiker a welcome temperature drop. Despite its shade cover, one of the great challenges of the trail is its first 800 metres. The first two switchbacks are largely uphill and rocky. Relief comes in the

form of another hiking post deeply shaded in the ever-darkening forest. The next two hundred metres are the steepest of all climbing. Once the uphill trudge is complete, the narrow trail opens into a warm welcoming meadow. The forest floor is a green mossy carpet that acts as a cushion on the hiking boot. The small amount of sunlight that reaches the trail dances with heat waves and spider webs that adjoin the trail. The lack of underbrush in the area gives the hike a pristine well-kept look. There are few obstacles and only a small number of technical rocky areas. At the 3.5-kilometre marker the trail

veers to the right and offers a small viewpoint of the sweeping valley below. “I can definitely see the magic to this place,” says Gerlach as she steps out on a narrow rock face to observe the valley below. The illusion of a cool day is broken with the open meadow that allows the full summer heat of the Fraser Valley to be felt. Down from the meadow, the trail takes a steep downhill descent. A rocky cliff face forms the left side of the trail, which gradually declines to the right. The bottom of the descent offers a lush mountain pond with colonies of lily pads and animal tracks

Offers amazing viewpoints everywhere. The trail then winds through a marsh area with a small bridge flanked by towering green foliage. The increasingly dim forest light pushes Gerlach to make the return trip. The forest groves and marsh meadows are illuminated in the warm tones of late summer. The trip back down the ridge is an easy hike. “I am definitely going to do this one again,” says Gerlach as she climbs down the mountainside in the early evening light. Hikers looking to try the ridge trail

need to take a right off the Columbia Valley Highway heading towards Cultus Lake onto Parmenter Road. Following Parmenter Road, hikers will pass a mountain bike parking lot. A second parking lot for all-terrain vehicle and dirtbike enthusiasts offers more parking closer to the trail and further up the road. ◗ Kristian Rasmussen is a 24-year-old fourth-year journalism student at Thompson Rivers University.

Extra cash for band members

Senior dies in head-on




SALMON, from page 3 between about seven and 13 pounds. Dunston—who is not a member of the band but said he was helping out the family—said the money would help band members purchase back-to-school supplies, among other things. “Money from this is how most of these natives pay for hunting trips in the winter,” he said. “To get them up to Fort St. John, or wherever, to get a moose.” Dunston said the sockeye return has been the best he has ever seen on the Fraser. The only year that came close was back when he was in high school in 1993. But he is well aware this year is a one-off and the next three will likely be lean. As for the freshness of the fish Dunston and the family were selling on the reserve over the past days? “These were in the river three-and-a-half hours ago,” he told the Times Friday.

Charmaine Guthrie, 15, of Cloverdale, and Luke Murguly, 13, of Chilliwack, enjoy a spin on the new Vertigo ride at the PNE. The annual summer fair, an end of summer tradition for generations of British Columbians, features more than 700 shows, exhibits and attractions that are free with admission.

68-year-old Chilliwack man is dead after a head-on crash in Abbotsford Thursday afternoon. The man’s black GMC Jimmy collided with a large farm truck at around 3:30 p.m. at on a curve where Wells Line Road becomes the Interprovincial Highway., in eastern Abbotsford. The Jimmy became pinned underneath the truck, and when paramedics arrived on scene it was determined that the man inside was dead. Police have not yet released the dead man’s name. The driver and passenger of the farm truck were not injured. Police are still working to determine what exactly happened and have begun to create a timeline of events leading up to the accident. Abbotsford police spokesperson Const. Ian MacDonald said the driver of the Jimmy “had, just moments earlier, left a friends house,” So we’re trying to get some more information. “We’ve got collision re-constructionists that have taken the measurements and are going to be focusing on the actual causes. But their report is nowhere near complete.” In the meantime, police will look to results from an autopsy and coroner’s report to shed more light on the collision.

Born in Southampton, England, Vera came to Canada with her parents in 1913. The family homesteaded in Eastleigh/Mortlach, Saskatchewan, moving to Vancouver, BC in 1924. Vera spent most of her life in Vancouver, moving to Chilliwack in her later years. She lived with her granddaughter, Shauna McFarlane (Andrew) and family, who lovingly cared for her from 2003 until her passing. Vera was predeceased by her husband, Thomas Samuelson in June 1996 and daughter, Sharron Livingstone in February 1996. She is survived by 2 sons, Bart (Betty), Thomas (Shirley), 2 daughters, Peggy Pilon (Tom), Louise McFarlane (Alister), 15 grandchildren and 24 great-grandchildren. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, September 4th 2010 at 12:00 p.m. at Henderson’s Funeral Home, 45901 Victoria Avenue, Chilliwack. If friends so desire, donations may be made to a charity of your choice, in lieu of flowers.


Kathy Friederici

The world has lost a shining star. Kathleen Gail Friederici died August 20, 2010 after a very short illness. Kathy was predeceased by her father Percy Kirby, her mother Winifred MacDonald and her stepfather Duncan (Mac) MacDonald. Kathy will be greatly missed by her son, Michael (Brenda) Friederici, her daughter Tanya (Berni) Schlueter and her four grandchildren who she adored: Michael and Kristina Friederici and Megan and Katie Dahlen. She is also survived and remembered by her brother David Kirby (Nanci) and her nephews Scott and Bryan. Kathy was a graduate of Chilliwack High School and U.B.C. She taught drama, Social Studies and was a School Counsellor for many years at Frank Ross Secondary School in Dawson Creek. She was also involved in Community Theatre in Dawson Creek, playing many diverse roles. She maintained many friendships from her school and teaching years because she was the kind of friend you never let go. Her former students kept in touch with “Mrs. Fred” remembering her humour, support and creative personality. Kathy was seconded by ICBC to work in the Traffic Safety Department in the ICBC Head Office, North Vancouver. She introduced “Captain Click”, the seatbelt mascot to legions of elementary students, and the “Counter Attack” drinking/driving program to secondary students in the Northern schools and Fraser Valley schools. Her innovation ideas, plays and programs made her stand out among her colleagues who tried but could never match her output. In retirement, Kathy continued her working relationships by volunteering (1000 hours) with the Coquitlam RCMP Victim Services. She also was on the Board of Evergreen Theatre and volunteered where her mother resided for 7 years at the Eagle Ridge Manor. She was a selfless, dedicated volunteer who shied away from recognition or attention. Kathy was all about family and friends. If you fell into either category you knew that you were “hers” forever. She nurtured you, cared for you and supported you through all difficult times – when you needed her she was your very good friend. Kathy had a wicked sense of humour and her sense of the bizarre made people howl with laughter. The best memories of Kathy are those involving laughter and we will hold those close to our hearts. There will be a Celebration of Kathy’s life on Saturday September 25th at The Hilton Metrotown, 6083 McKay Avenue, from 2-4pm. The family asks that if you wish, donations be made to the Atenas, Costa Rica Playground Project. This was one of Kathy’s “projects” dream to ensure that a playground was built for the Children at this school. Cheques can be made to RR Smith Memorial Fund Foundation, 100 – 550 West 6th Avenue, Vancouver, BC, V5Z 4P2. Family Owned
