Facebook warning after sex assault

Fraser Health investigating yet another radiologist

Older man used social media to attract teen girls

hilliwack Mounties are again warning parents to be vigilant about their children’s Internet use after a 15-year-old girl was allegedly sexually assaulted at a party organized by an older man, possibly over Facebook. A 32-year-old man is facing sexual assault charges in connection with the attack. Police say the man may have used Facebook to invite teenage boys and girls to a party at his home, where he supplied them with alcohol. Mounties allege that the victim passed out and was left at the home, where she was sexually assaulted. RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck said the incident is similar to one reported last May, when police say older teenagers hosted a so-called “LG [little girls] party” at which younger girls were plied with alcohol and targeted to engage in sexual acts. “The M.O. is very similar to LG parties,” said Wolbeck. “The new part of the trend is the older adult now being involved.” She said this is the first such incident since the LG parties were reported last year. Police are repeating their plea to parents to carefully monitor the Internet activity of their children. See SEX ASSAULT, Page 7

Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Chuck Strahl receives congratulations from constituents after his 2008 election victory.

Like father, like son Mark Strahl seeks party nomination as father Chuck puts an end to his 17-year reign as MP BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

huck Strahl’s son Mark announced Monday he would seek the Conservative party nomination for Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon in the next election. Mark’s announcement comes just two days after Chuck announced he would not seek re-election whenever the writ drops. The 32-year-old Strahl is currently executive assistant to MP Randy Kamp and has served in a variety of Parliamentary intern roles in Ottawa, starting in Preston Manning’s office. He resigned, effective immediately, from his position as president of the local Conservative riding association. In a telephone interview with the Times on Mon-

day, Chuck Strahl said Prime Minister Stephen Harper knew “a long time ago” that he wouldn’t run again, but those in the party weren’t told until Friday. Because the threat of an election is imminent, the national party wants to make sure it has candidates lined up in all ridings. When asked about a successor, Strahl wouldn’t give up a name. “ We have a good party membership—700 or 800 members—so it’s up now to the national party to run the campaign,” he said. “I’ve got some ideas about who might run but on the other hand, it is up to them to announce and when.” Less than an hour after that interview, Mark sent out a press release announcing his Mark Strahl candidacy. He said he decided to throw his hat in the ring after consulting with family and friends. “My dad has such a way with people,” said Strahl.

raser Health is investigating another radiologist who performed hundreds of CT scans at Chilliwack General Hospital between November 2008 and October 2009. F r a s e r He a l t h a n n o u n c e d Friday that it is reviewing more than 2,000 CT scans performed by a radiologist around the Lower Mainland since 2008. That number includes 679 CT scans performed at CGH. The radiologist is the fourth in British Columbia to come under investigation in recent months. Fraser Health says the doctor worked for Valley Medical Imaging in 2008 and 2009 and interpreted hundreds of CT scans at EB IRST Chilliwack First reported on General Hospital, chilliwacktimes.com Abbotsford RegionalHospital and Langley Memorial Hospital. The doctor was originally trained in South Africa, moved to Europe, where he received further training in mammography, and then to Canada, where he required a sponsor to practise medicine. In 2009, however, he was cited for serious errors reading mammograms and his contract wasn’t renewed. Those errors included “two misses, a cancer and a suspicious

Valleyhaven safety rating is the worst

One on the cusp of high BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

Most local homes have good rating

New owners says improvments being made

Chilliwack nursing home owned until 2009 by former mayor and current CEPCO president John Jansen has the worst safety rating in the region. When the Fraser Health Authority inspected Valleyhaven Guest Home in the summer of 2008, it raised a number of red flags about the way staff kept track of the medicine given to elderly residents. Inspector Sheryl Kerr Loughlin noted in her inspection report that “substantial required documentation was missing” from its files. In some cases, she wrote, medication had been punched out of its packaging but not properly recorded as given to the patient. In others, medication a resident was supposed to be given was still in its packaging, with no explanation for why it was not administered.

TUESDAY, MARCH 15, 2011

Tyler Olsen/TIMES

Valleyhaven Guest Home in Chilliwack has the worst safety rating in the region. Loughlin’s report advised Valleyhaven to explain, in writing, how it planned to deal with the problem. But just a year later, in September 2009, another inspection turned up remarkably similar concerns. Again, Loughlin found medication punched but not signed for. And there were other mistakes, including a failure to record the effect of medication on some patients and, in one case, a nurse who gave several patients their drugs an hour and a half early “to save time and attend a workshop.” Valleyhaven had put on a training session to teach its staff a new medication system. But Loughlin noted “with concern” that only two of its five nurses attended. “These documentation practices are unacceptable and compromise care,”

Loughlin wrote. “They also speak to the competence of the nursing staff.” Once again, Loughlin asked Valleyhaven to explain in writing how it planned to address her concerns. But when Loughlin returned to Valleyhaven last summer, she found still more medication problems — including residue of crushed pills on top of a medicine cart (meaning a patient had not received an entire dose) and a failure to conduct regular medication audits. Loughlin’s report also highlighted more general concerns with Valleyhaven’s record-keeping. Loughlin noted that Valleyhaven sent reports on minor accidents and illnesses to an off-site location without keeping a copy of them at the home and that it See WORST, Page 15

ost Chilliwack nursing homes have been assigned “low” inspection priority ratings by Fraser Health, ratings that are now available to see online at www.vancouversun.com/ nursinghomes. Valleyhaven Guest Home received the worst rating in the region—a score of 54 out of 65—and was among just two in Chilliwack that received a high rating. The ratings—which used to be called “risk ratings”— indicate whether a facility has been flagged by health authority inspectors as needing more frequent inspections. Facilities rated “low” receive just one inspection a year. Those rated “moderate” get two inspections a year. And those rated “high” receive three inspections a year or more. Yarrow House received a 40

out of 65, which is on the cusp of a “moderate” rating. Yarrow House is a four-person community living facility in operation since 2006 in Yarrow. Aside from the two with “high” ratings, two facilities received “moderate” ratings and 11 others received “low.” Valleyhaven was built in the 1960s and saw various additions and modifications since then. In 2008, the Community Care and Assisted Living Appeal Board upheld an appeal by families of residents opposed to double-bunking of residents during the construction process. Construction at Valleyhaven is nearly complete, and it reopened this month. As with the rankings for daycare ratings assigned by Fraser Health, newly opened facilities may have high ratings because inspectors have insufficient experience with the facility. ◗ See the Friday issue of the Times for a story on one local daycare provider and the reasons why her new business was ranked high despite having no complaints from clients. - with files from the Vancouver Sun

lesion,” said Dr. Andrew Webb, vice-president of m e d i c i n e a t t h e Fra s e r Valley Health Authority. A l l o f t h e d o c t o r ’s m a m m o g r a p h y interpretations were reviewed in 2009. Changes were made to the reports of 38 patients, who were then contacted and notified of any changes to their prescribed treatment. No further mammograms in Chilliwack are being reviewed, although Fraser Health is reviewing 184 mammogram interpretations done at Ridge Meadows Hospital. “A t t h e t i m e t h e mammogram issue was identified, he was a year into his position [with Valley Medical Imaging] and his sponsor decided he could no longer sponsor him, so he parted company with the group of physicians he worked with,” said Webb. Ne v e r t h e l e s s , h e w a s able to obtain a provisional licence and began working at Ridge Meadows Hospital in November 2010. His provisional licence required supervision and q u a r t e r l y re v i e w. A f t e r a re v i e w o f 1 9 7 s c a n s , nine were found to have significant discrepancies, said Webb. That has prompted the review of the doctor’s CT scans in Chilliwack and elsewhere. We b b s a i d t h a t a f t e r receiving information a few days ago about “serious discrepancies” in the radiologist’s data interpretations, the health authority immediately i n f o r m e d D r. D o u g l a s Cochrane, the chair of the B.C. Patient Safety & Quality Council. Cochrane is leading a two-part investigation into both the credentialing of B.C. radiologists and the role and responses of health authorities and the B.C. College of Physicians and Surgeons in the growing crisis. The physician has not been suspended, said Webb, but he is not practising as the investigation moves forward.

The news of yet another radiologist’s skills being brought into question came on the same day that Cochrane and the Ministry of Health Services released the first phase of their twopart provincial report. A t F r i d a y ’s n e w s conference, Cochrane said his investigation showed that all B.C. radiologists are appropriately qualified and licensed. “ We a re a s s u re d t h a t people are practising within the scope of their licences. What is clear is that we can better support our radiologists,” Cochrane said at a news conference in Vancouver. The report recommends the implementation of a new provincewide peerreview system in which a proportion of scans read by each radiologist would b e r e - r e a d by a n o t h e r radiologist. Discrepancies would be reported, flagging problematic cases. “Informal and assumed methods of quality assurance are no longer adequate,” said Cochrane. Meanwhile, one of the patients whose CT scanned w a s i n t e r p r e t e d by a n u n q u a l i f i e d ra d i o l o g i s t who worked at Abbotsford Regional Hospital (AHR) and Chilliwack General Hospital last year is undergoing further tests to determine if a faulty diagnosis affected their treatment plan, according to Fraser Health. The unnamed radiologist worked in the Fraser Valley between mid-August and mid-September last year and interpreted about 170 CT scans. A review of the scans showed that 11 showed “significant discrepancies,” according to a Fraser Health press release. Those patients, all of whom were seen at ARH, have since been notified and “One patient is receiving follow-up testing to determine whether the discrepancy would have changed their treatment plan. No other patient cases require further treatment or investigation.”

◗ Opinion

Two generations, one violent tale

T

he story of the Wild McLeans in British Columbia is largely a footnote, the province of amateur historians as much as professional. It’s a story of fathers and sons, of generations that enacted the same story twice. The McLeans could fill the role of hero or villain, and each generation did a bit of both. The story begins, like a lot of Canadian stories, with the First Nations people, and with a Scots trader for the HBC. Donald McLean came over from the old country in 1833 and spent the next 18 years rising through the ranks to chief trader. He did the grunt work of the world’s oldest trading firm, turning hard labour and sharp trading into furs and money. He was known for violently enforcing what law there was, and accounts say he killed unarmed men and women, maybe children—all native. By 1864, McLean had left the Hudson’s Bay Company, after his temper and insubordination caused too deep a rift. He turned to ranching, with his First Nations wife Sofia and his sons and daughters, on the Cariboo Road. That year, the most violent clash between First Nations people and the still-young colony of British Columbia broke out. The Chilcotin people had been scourged by smallpox and an influx of gold miners. The road, to be punched through from the coast, was the last straw.

MATTHEW CLAXTON

Be Our Guest A total of 14 men died in the first attacks. A crew was assembled to hunt down the Chilcotin. Donald McLean, who had worked in the Chilcotin territory as a trader, was brought on as second-in-command. He died on a trail, in a trap set by Chilcotin warriors. The metal armour he wore, reputedly bulletproof, had been put aside in the heat of the day. A bullet went through his chest. The leaders of the Chilcotin War would later be hanged, by the order of Judge Matthew Bailie Begbie. The revolt, however, was successful. The road was never built through Chilcotin lands. The Chilcotin always maintained they were at war, that the attacks were not murder. The sons of Donald McLean didn’t lose much of their father’s temper. Tough, skilled riders, they worked on ranches and as jockeys in rodeo races in the 1870s. Allan, Charley and Archie McLean, with their friend Alex Hare, turned to crime in the economically lean year of 1877. They were also angry at John Mara, a wealthy former

Overlander to the gold fields, a provincial MLA, and the man who had seduced and abandoned their teenaged sister, leaving her with a child. In 1879, the boys known as the Wild McLeans stole a stallion and shot the provincial constable who came to take it back. They ran looking for help, and even tried to raise the First Nations people in the Interior in revolt, but the local chiefs didn’t want to help the wild boys who were criminals as much as would-be rebels. The McLeans were starved out of a cabin in the winter of 1879. They were brought before Judge Begbie in New Westminster. The man who had sentenced the killers of their father sentenced the McLeans to hang by the neck until dead. Archie, the youngest, was 16. Arguably, the sons of Donald McLean had more cause to be angry and vengeful than their father ever did. He died violently, but a respected member of the colonial community. They died as outlaws, dispossessed and seen as “half-breeds,” not true members of society. The McLeans, sons and father, helped build B.C. They worked and strove, and they were violent even by the standards of a violent time. More than solemn declarations or fluttering flags, they represent the history of B.C. ◗ Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the LangleyAdvance.

he dual announcements that Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Chuck Strahl is retiring politics and his son, Mark Strahl, will seek his father’s vacant seat is most certainly huge news for politics in the Eastern Fraser Valley. Chuck Strahl has been a beloved local figure who has managed to make politics look, if not glamorous, then certainly dignified. In an era when Parliament seems to have little regard for itself, that achievement itself is something worth noting and honouring. Politics, after all, is the way we exercise democracy. It is incumbent, therefore, that it attract and retains men and women who respect the offices to which they are elected by the public. Chuck Strahl, whether you disagree with him or not, has always conducted himself in a manner suiting his office. If son is indeed like father, Chilliwack could do much worse. And knowing how important family is to Chuck Strahl, we can only hope that his manner and dignity have rubbed off on Mark. That fact is crucial, indeed, because the apparent lack of a successor to Chuck Strahl seems to leave the door wide open for a father-to-son hand off. In both the race for the Conservative nomination and any future federal election, Mark Strahl will benefit from instant name recognition and the perception (and hope) that he will take a cue from his father. That’s fine. But we hope that somebody steps up to challenge the favoured son. Democracy, after all, was established as an alternative to nepotistic dynasties. And while there’s no indication that Mark Strahl isn’t qualified for his father’s post, there remains the fact that he will have to do little to book a ticket to Ottawa. That may be fine, but we hope he runs a vigorous campaign of ideas in which he makes a case that Mark Strahl, and not just any Strahl, deserves to represent Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon in Ottawa. He should do so even if his seat is almost guaranteed. We’re confident his father wouldn’t want it any other way.

Letters

Military veterans should quit complaining Editor: Is anyone besides me getting really tired of hearing the whining about how poorly our ex-Armed Forces personel are treated? Canada has had no conscription policy in place for well over 60 years. Those who would choose a career (or interim job) in the Armed Services do so totally by choice. The possible dangers to life and limb are not deep dark secrets. Those on assignment, mostly, come back intact. Yes, some do die and others are injured to a greater or lesser degree, but perhaps no more than they might suffer in an industrial incident in mining or construction. I think that we as a nation look after our ex-services personel pretty darned well with a hefty payout and a life pension. It seems that part of their discontent stems from the fact that when they turn 65, their pension is reduced by the OAS and CPP. Know what? For most of us, apart from savings, OAS and CPP is what we get to live on. Don Brewer Yarrow

Bad Kitty will get her punishment Editor: The choice of the title Bad Kitty (Chilliwack Times, March 11) had me initially feeling as though someone had scolded their pet cat for some careless deed like making a mess of its food or other cute but unacceptable act. Once I completed reading the article I had two impressions: One: the article was well written and informative; Two: If the individual(s) involved are ever charged and appear in court, that the judicial system will not be influenced by the “Bad Kitty” headline and hand down a punisment which is consistent with this unlawful act.

on a bumpy, rough road, to say it mildly. Oh yes, you have fixed the sewer system, great, but what have you done to the road? Why is it whenever a road is ripped up to add a light or dug up because of a sewer problem, the road is repaved in a way that makes it worse than before? Who is in charge of that department? If it’s the city in charge, they should be sent to drive over the mess a few times a week. They would soon get the road fixed in a proper manner. For instance, Evans Road was repaved only in some parts of the road. South Sumas, if you drive to try to keep the resurfaced road in between your tires, you will drive right into the other lane. If you cannot do a good job, for Petes’ sake, resurfacing the sewer line section, redo the whole road. I could do a better job wearing a blindfold. Keith Wilson, my gawd, are you kidding? Whoever is in charge is very incompetent. We do not all drive dirt bikes. Even if you are not finished with the road, who cares, make the road drivable. Angele Pomerleau Chilliwack

Instead of blaming God . . . turn to him Editor: In light of the recent earthquakes in New Zealand and Japan many people are wondering where this world is headed. Here in British Columbia the frightening question of when we will be faced with a major earthquake on our west coast has once again come to the forefront of many discussions.

With all of these interruptions to “business as usual,” questions about God have also entered the table of debates. Those who are undecided about either believing the theory of evolution or instead acknowledging the existence of a divine Creator can find help during times of so called natural disasters. Government officials and insurance companies alike have declared that, after some research one would assume, these catastrophic events are “acts of God,” whereby verifying His existence. The Bible in its prophetic capacity does indeed make reference to a dramatic increase in natural disasters, such as droughts and earthquakes, before Jesus’s final return to earth. Seeing that these events were foretold, perhaps turning to God instead of blaming Him would be much wiser. Mario C. Alleckna Chilliwack

Commuters need to drive together Editor: We are a Jack Bell Foundation sponsored vanpool leaving Chilliwack at 5:30 a.m. Monday to Friday. It is with dismay that we are now seeing more and more single-car occupants on the freeway at that time. Do people not realize that there are services available for commuting? Are they not concerned with the carbon footprint they are leaving? One would think that with the ever-rising cost of fuel, savvy commuters would seek out the various ways of getting to their workplaces. Margaret Grant Chilliwack

Editor: The community of Sardis and Vedder needs more entertainment for teenagers, ages 13 to 16, to keep the trouble makers out of trouble and so we can have more fun, rather than stay home and play video games and get obese. If teenagers that can’t drive have somewhere close to go, like a bowling alley, or a go-kart track, another good thing could just be a nice lounge or “bar” where kids can hang out and watch some sports with buddies, it would keep them out of trouble, like vandalising things, or it could just get some kids off their butts and out in the world. Some people, if they’re new to town, could go there and make new friends, and it could bring some healthy competition between friends maybe to keep them going back. All Sardis has at the moment is a few run-down hockey and basketball courts, some baseball fields and a fairly pathetic skate park. I know for a fact if this changed, it would change how lazy some kids here are, and it could also bring job oppotunities for kids. Bryan Brears Grade 11, Sardis secondary

Education the key to stronger families Editor: Christy Clark’s recent campaign to become British Columbia’s leader-elect centred around bringing a change to B.C. and its politics. However, after a review of her campaign platform, it appears she’ll only be continuing the futility of previous administrations, specifically B.C.’s abysmal child poverty record. Despite claiming in her platform to be putting “families first,” a closer inspection reveals that her plans will only continue a vicious cycle of chronic poverty within families, and one can point to her plans for education as the major cause. Clark’s idea of “family first” is to ensure that both mothers and fathers have jobs, which is an admirable goal that will assist families to get out of poverty.

But, despite having served as B.C.’s education minister, Clark’s platform blatantly disregards the impact education has on poverty. While planning to dedicate half the budget to health care, she conveniently skims over the cutting of funds to other sectors such as education. As many teachers, parents, and students can attest to, current funding is quite often not enough to suffice even the basics. Many studies have shown that higher levels of education directly lead to lower poverty rates. For Clark to really put families first, she must put education as a higher priority. While no one will argue with increased health care spending, school boards across B.C. cannot provide quality education without the proper funding. Clark will not be bringing about change if she doesn’t realize the impact her cost cutting will have. B.C. families need jobs, there is no doubt about that, but to remain above the poverty line, they need an education to get the jobs that will allow them to provide over the long haul. Jacob Tuioti Chilliwack

Foam pit needed for local bikers Editor: The City of Chilliwack needs to build an indoor foam pit for the local mountain bikers. It would be a safe place where the bikers can learn new tricks and don’t have to worry about hurting themselves trying the tricks on dirt, but in a soft pit of foam. Mountain bikers in Chilliwack have very few spots to bike that are maintained and always available. The local skateparks are controlled by skateboarders and are not welcoming to bikers. There is a 8,400-square-foot facility in Whistler that contains a foam pit and a few wooden jumps. It has been open for four years and the bikers of Whistler have been very appreciative ever since it was built. It would be cheap to build and require a low amount of maintenance. I believe that the biking community in Chilliwack could easily support a facility like this. Dustin Adamson Yarrow

That translates to wins, which in turn has boosted the mood inside the dressing room. “Winning always fixes a lot of things,” he said. “I think the guys have done a really good job

he Chilliwack Bruins guaranteed themselves a spot in the Western Hockey League playoffs this weekend thanks to a convincing win over the Vancouver Giants Saturday and a pair of overtime losses Friday and Sunday. Bruins netminder Lucas Gore made 55 saves Friday, but it wasn’t enough as the Bruins fell to the Seattle Thunderbirds 3-2 in overtime. Gore got more goal support the following day, as the Bruins pounded the Vancouver Giants 85 in front of a boisterous Prospera Centre crowd of 4,193. Those fans saw the Bruins jump out to a 4-0 lead within the first 10 minutes and by the end of a thrilling first period, Chilliwack led 5-2. Even a four-goal night from Giant sniper Spencer Bennett wasn’t enough to spoil the Bruins’ party, which was punctuated by Ryan Howse’s second goal, and 50th of the season, in the third period. Sunday’s tilt against the B.C. Division-leading Kelowna Rockets was a more staid affair. The Bruins

at pulling in the same direction and competing and playing with adrenaline.” With three games to play, there is more on the line than bragging rights, however. The sixth-placed team will face either the Portland Winterhawks or the Spokane Chiefs—two powerhouses playing their best hockey of the season. The fifth-placed team will match up against the Tri-City Americans, who, while still posting a respectable record, are considered by most league watchers to be a level below Portland or Spokane.

Sports Senior Flames show tourney they’re better than 13th seed Unity Christian’s senior Flames girls basketball squad finished the season on a high note at the Single A Provincial Championships in Sparwood Saturday. The girls’ play improved steadily throughout the year and they were pleased with a second-place finish in the Fraser Valleys. Satisfaction turned to disappointment less than a week later when they discovered they had been seeded 13th in the 16-team Provincial tournament. They made the long trip to Sparwood determined to prove that they were a team to be reckoned with at the provincial level. Facing the tournament’s No. 4 seed, the Ashcroft Rams, on Wednesday, the Flames pressed the Okanagan zone champions hard and a determined effort led to a convincing 87-73 victory. The Flames were the only team to score an upset in round one and the victory guaranteed Unity at least an eighth-place finish. But the Flames weren’t satisfied. Their second game pitted the locals against an aggressive and well-prepared team from Kelowna Christian School. And despite a

Jock scraps valiant effort, Unity wasn’t able to knock off the tournament’s No. 5 seed as they fell 68-54. However, facing the No. 8seeded Valemount Timberwolves in their next game, Unity Christian jumped out to an early 10-0 lead and never looked back, taking the Timberwolves 71-63. This set the stage for a final game meeting with the Mulgrave Titans, a team that the Flames had come to know well throughout the season. The sixthseeded Titans (No. 1 from the Lower Mainland) had defeated the Flames in two meetings earlier this year and the girls had established a very friendly rivalry. The Flames came out on fire, hitting long range shots to build a 12-point lead. And while the Titans fought back, getting as close as two points, the Flames prevailed with a 70-66 victory. The Flames’ 3–1 record netted them a fifth-place finish—significantly higher than their seeding. Coach Brian Downey was bursting with pride at how his team, led by retiring

seniors Samantha Luteyn, Jade McGhee and Janelle Taekem, finished the season. They leave the team knowing that their younger teammates are ready to carry the Flames into the next season.

Senior boys finish tourney exactly as they were seeded The Unity Christian senior boys basketball squad also turned in a strong performance at the provincial championships last weekend. Tenth-seeded Unity started the provincials with a bang, upsetting the seventh-seeded Glenlyon Norfolk Gryphons 76-49. Nathan Vugteveen led the way with 25 points. In the quarterfinal matchup, the Flames suffered a narrow 62-57 loss to the secondseeded West Point Grey,

which went on to lose in the final. Michael Haan led all scorers with 22 points. Unity kept battling, but followed with losses to third-seeded Langley and then fourthseeded seeded Bodewell. Unity played tough against Bodewell, losing 62-58. Ryan Billsten led the way with five three-pointers in the game. Unity ended up finishing 10th out of 16 teams in the tournament, but was extremely competitive playing against three of the province’s top four teams Grade 12 Michael Haan averaged 21 points per game, grade 11 Nathan Vugteveen averaged 19.5, and grade 10 Ryan Billsten finished the tournament with 11 three-pointers. The Unity boys will start next season with nine returning players and will be considered a strong provincial contender for a third-straight season. “We have strong players and athletes from grade 9 through to 12, and we are getting stronger each year,” said coach Mike Campbell. “It should be a fun four years. “The three seniors, Michael Haan, Keith Vugteveen, and Rob VanRyk all helped rebuild our basketball program when they started in grade 10.”

Lunachicks continue title hunt with 2-0 blanking of Rage The Chilliwack Lunachicks have moved into the final four with a close hard fought 2-0 victory on Sunday over the visiting North Shore Rage soccer team. Chilliwack opened scoring 26 minutes into the game when Kerry Williams pushed in a rebound from Lisa Shearer. Less than a minute later Cara Brendzy picked up an errant clearing attempt by North Shore and lofted a 30-yard shot over the Keeper to give Chilliwack the 2-0 lead, which was how the game ended. Chilliwack entered the game with only 11 players due to injuries and vacation, and the situation became more difficult when Cara Brendzy was forced to leave the game with a groin injury at the beginning of the second half. Playing one short forced Chilliwack to change their game plan to protect their lead. Chilliwack keeper Lisa Hiemstra was busy in protecting the shutout, a feat that included a spectacular toe save in the second half. UFV women’s basketball team’s season ends in semifinals The University of the Fraser Valley Cascades’ women’s basketball team’s season is finally over after falling 78-69 to the Uni-

versity of Toronto Varsity Blues, Friday in the CIS East Regional Championship semifinal. The Cascades—who earned their way to the East championship by making the Canada West Final Four—fell behind early in the first quarter. UFV rallied in the second and grabbed their first lead ever at a CIS Championship level game, 24-23. But the Varsity Blues would rebound and go on an eight-point run of their own to re-establish their six point advantage. In the third quarter, the Varsity Blues opened up a 12-point lead for Toronto going into the final quarter. In the last frame, UFV kept pressuring Toronto but the OUA East regular season champs did not budge. And despite a last-gasp UFV run, Toronto held on for the victory. The Cascades were led by Chilliwack products Alyssa Gaukel with 14 points and Sarah Wierks with 12 points. Wierks led all Cascades with 10 total rebounds as UFV pulled down 29 total boards for the game.

a special

Humdinger 10th year for annual RV show and sale held in Chilliwack BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

RV

dealers and enthusiasts from all over the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley are gearing up for a humdinger of an anniversary at Heritage Park this week. The 10th Annual Chilliwack Humdinger RV Sale & Show rolls into town March 17 to 20, and organizers expect more than 10,000 people to take in the show’s 10th anniversary edition. “It’s exciting,” said show director Joan Jackson. With 150,000 square feet

of exhibits, the Humdinger is B.C.’s largest indoor RV show and gives window shoppers and hardcore RVers alike a chance to peruse all the latest models and accessories without having to brave the elements. This year’s event will feature 12 Lower Mainland dealers as well as 45 small booth vendors. Along with checking out a dizzying array of brands and floor plans (ranging from fold-down tent trailers to luxurious motor homes and park models) RV enthusiasts at the show can take in informative seminars on everything from trip planning and leak detection to propane safety and driving tips. New this year is an RCMP seat-belt safety demonstration featuring a mock-up of an RV with unseatbelted dummies inside. “They’re going to roll it,

Organizers expecting business will be brisk this year SPECIAL, from page B3 and the dummies are going to come flying out,” said Jackson. “Sometimes when people are in a big RV, they don’t feel like they need the safety of a seatbelt.” Other new seminars this year include one on advanced RV maintenance and another on basic RV driving tips. “We went a little more technical this year,” said Jackson of the seminar lineup. Between talks, local folk musician Evans Palmer, comedy magician Rod Boss, children’s entertainer Ish da Fish and local barbershop quartet Pick A Part will be on hand to entertain the troops with walkaround entertainment. Visitors will also have a chance to win draw prizes including everything from lawn chairs and doormats to resort accommodations and an e-bike donated by Pacific Coast Van and RV. Based on recent RV shows in Ontario and Alberta, which boasted five to 15 per cent increases in attendance over last year, Jackson (who is also the executive director of the Recreation Vehicle Dealers Association of B.C.) expects business at the Humdinger to be brisk this year. Sales for large Class A motorhomes were up by 59 per cent in B.C. last year, according to RVDA statistics, and sales for travel trailers and fifth wheels were up 27

Kitchens that pull out the back of trailers for outdoor summer cooking, full-sized appliances, extreme sound systems, gas fireplaces, satellite dishes, king-sized beds—the list goes on and RVers can find it all at the Humdinger. “That stuff is neat,” said Jackson.

Jackson. Nor does she see rising gas prices dampening buyers’ enthusiasm for RVs; people are simply planning their routes more carefully, she said.

“Instead of going lookylooing along the way, they’ll go directly to where they’re going to spend the bulk of their holiday.” And, ultimately, getting away in an RV will still be more economi-

Fire training officer Rick Meeres gives tips to newly minted on-call firefighters. exponentially. “They now understand what we’ve been talking about,” he said. “Once they get that first run under their belts, they all feel good.” Recruit William Dunn had wanted to fight fires for years before a change of careers suddenly gave him the opportunity to pursue that goal. “It’s great to help people and be part of a team,” he said between training scenarios. He said the classroom work was difficult “but as soon as you get to start, like today’s live fire, and you’re using all the skills you learned, it makes all the class work worth it.” At the end of the day, as Yarrow dairy farmer and now on-call firefighter Brian Enns watched the flames race through the house, his thoughts turned to his family. Enns—at 44, the oldest recruit—

applied to the fire department in order to continue his involvement in the community after he found his kids’ sports talents outstripping his own abilities as their coaches. He said his family’s support was vital to becoming a firefighter: while his wife and other family members and friends shuttled his children to and from sports events, Enns said “I’ve been out playing fireman every weekend.” “[I] absolutely could not have done it without her,” he said. The mere presence of flames illustrates that this isn’t your typical part-time job. Yet, despite the serious nature of their job, there’s also no getting around the fact that it is fun. “The hotter and dirtier those fellows and the gal come out, the bigger the smile they have,” said Meeres. “The rougher they look, the bigger they smile.”

Additional training for staff higher the score, the more problems the facility has and the more visits inspectors will make. A facility with a score of 29 or lower is usually rated “low,” meaning it receives just one inspection a year. Those with a score between 30 and 39 are rated “moderate,” meaning two inspections. And facilities with a score of 40 or more are rated “high,” meaning three or more inspections. Valleyhaven used to be owned by former Chilliwack mayor John Jansen. In late 2009 it was purchased by Kaigo Retirement Communities Ltd. In an email, Kaigo’s president Kevin Svoboda said he’s made several changes to Valleyhaven since he took over.

“There have been changes with staff that were of concern and they are no longer employed with Valleyhaven,” Svoboda wrote. “I can also confirm that a new director of care was hired last year and is doing an excellent job.” Svoboda also wrote that Valleyhaven has put on additional training and education for staff and has been working with its pharmacists “to ensure all standards and regulations are met, specifically reinforcing positive charting once medications are dispensed.” Valleyhaven has been undergoing extensive construction over the past few years, during which some residents were temporarily double-bunked.

wasn’t keeping track of whether there were enough hip protectors in supply. One resident didn’t have a hip protector on the day of the inspection because it was in the laundry, the report indicates. “Communication and ... documentation related to care is not consistent thereby making it difficult for staff to know what has been and/or needs to be done,” Loughlin wrote. “This is a critical hazard and of grave concern.” In order to determine how often a care home needs to be inspected, health authority inspectors grade each facility on six separate factors — deciding, in each category, which of five statements best reflects the facility being assessed. The result is a score out of 65. The

first start out that when they’ve put that uniform on . . . their lives have changed,” said fire training officer Rick Meeres. Suddenly, the firefighters are expected to know more about risky situations. “If they’re wearing that uniform, they’re expected to perform,” he said. Hence the extensive training, which continued even as the Chilliwack River Road house crumbled in flames. Before the house was finally burned to the ground, a dozen or so different scenarios were conducted Saturday, with veteran training staff setting fires inside the two-storey farm house and trainees required to properly extinguish the flames and remove any casualties from the home. When the house had outlived its usefulness, both to the fire department and its owners and after the surrounding foliage had been thoroughly doused by a fire-retarding foam, it was set alight. And after taking a photo commemorating their graduation, the learning re-commenced, with the flames providing another vital lesson about extreme fire behaviour. Meeres said that no classroom training can completely replicate the value of training on a house, especially one with multiple levels like Saturday’s structure. “Until you get onto those scenarios— those real-life scenarios—they don’t really understand it,” he said. After, though, the recruits knowledge and, just as important, their confidence level rises

Seek out the positives BY PATRICIA CHUEY For Postmedia News

A

great mentor taught me to focus on positive nutrition rather than negative. When looking at a label, don’t ask what the food lacks—such as trans fat or sodium. With the exception of allergens, some claims indicating what’s not in the food are as helpful as “contains no dirt” or “hair-free.” Instead, ask what the food provides; critically assessing what we’re about to put into our body matters. Is the food high in fibre? Does it provide vitamin D or other key nutrients? Will it energize me? These are important questions. On your journey to becoming a lean, efficient machine, ask even deeper questions. Ask what plant or animal is this food from? (If it’s not immediately obvious, reserve it for 20 per cent or less of the time.) Will this food rot? If it were open and left out on the counter for a long time, would it break down or still seem perfectly good? The answer is one way of determining whether the food is something the body can make good use of.Think of the body as a human compost bin:

select foods that eventually rot. Keep in mind that when quality eating is mastered, the issue of over-eating has a way of resolving itself. The pleasure maximization principle is a helpful tool here. When making less healthy choices—for example, sugary treats or alcohol—make the indulgence worthwhile in terms of quality, not quantity. Don’t settle for inferior goods. This is how I approach chocolate. Giant but waxy seasonal chocolate statues just aren’t as good as my favourite chocolate bar, so I don’t eat them. Develop discriminating taste. It doesn’t have to be expensive taste but pleasure in eating matters. When two groups of dieters were given the same number of healthy calories but group A got tasty choices and group B bland food, group A lost weight faster. Eating quality foods that cover nutritional needs and satisfy at the same time helps reduce desire for filler foods like salty, low-fibre chips or sugary cookies.These “goodies” lack nutrients, are easy to overeat and leave us wanting more. Weight loss maintainers learn to have their cake and eat it, too. Make a pact first to eat what you need. If you’re ready for lunch and someone walks in

with a platter of brownies, of course you’ll take one or more. It has nothing to do with willpower—we’re mammals and like other mammals we enjoy food that tastes good. If that same person walked in with a fresh turkey avocado sandwich on whole grain bread, you might have happily eaten that. Make a point of doing so: When you’re hungry, seize the opportunity and have a healthy sandwich, side salad and refreshing glass of water, and when you’re done, go ahead have a brownie. Chances are you’ll eat a more modest portion than if the brownie had been lunch. Allowing yourself to eat everything in a healthy, quality context will make weight loss less intimidating. Focus on high-quality fuel, fresh air and activity—not because there are food police who’ll lock you up for eating poorly but because you will love the effects on your body and spirit.

Virginia’s World Was Shrinking

Take a deep breath I

have a friend who listens to her iPod even when we run together.She swears it’s not my voice she’s trying to drown out, rather it’s the sound of her own breathing that drives her crazy. Frankly, I don’t pay attention to how I breathe. Why would I? It comes naturally, even during a workout when the increased demand for oxygen turns up the volume and pace of my breathing. Yoga masters don’t tune out the sound of their breathing. Nor do they ignore it. Breathing is a fundamental part of the practice. It’s considered the body’s central source of energy and the link between mind and body. All exercisers can benefit from paying more attention to how they breathe during a tough workout, the first step of which is realizing that everyone varies their breathing pattern while exercising.The most obvious are swimmers and synchronized swimmers, for whom a specific pattern of breathing is central to the execution of their sport.Veteran swimmers make breathing look easy, but those new to the sport often remark that the mechanics of breathing are one of the most difficult skills to pick up. Runners on the other hand, rarely take the time to evaluate their breathing. In fact, most don’t realize that they naturally adjust their breathing to their stride rate. At a comfortable pace, runners typically inhale for three strides and exhale for three strides. As their pace increases, a cadence of two strides per inhale and two per exhale is common. At a training pace, their breathing changes again to a twosecond exhale and a one-second inhale. In the weight room, lifters are instructed to exhale on effort and inhale during the recovery phase, a habit that should be incorporated any time you lift heavy objects be they a loaded barbell or a loaded garbage can. As natural as it feels to hold your breath upon exertion, it causes a spike in blood pressure and puts extra strain on your heart.

The mechanics of breathing

During regular low-intensity activity most people breathe in and out through their nose which acts as a natural filter for any gases or particulate matter found in the atmosphere.When it’s cold outside, the nose does extra duty by warming inhaled air to near body temperature before it enters the lungs. As exercise intensity increases however, the need for oxygen exceeds what the nose can

Exercise makes breathing easier

Exercise helps strengthen the muscles dedicated to inflating and deflating the lungs—which can result in improved breathing efficiency.The diaphragm, which is located between your lungs and the stomach, is one of the most active breathing muscles and can benefit the most from additional strength and endurance. Weak breathing muscles coupled with long bouts of exercise fatigues the diaphragm, which sends an emergency signal to the body, instructing it to inhibit the flow of oxygen to the working muscles and reroute it to the organs necessary to sustain life.With less oxygen to fuel movement, exercise intensity decreases and performance starts to dip. Contributing to the fatigue is the rapid, shallow breathing that exercisers rely on when intensity increases. A more efficient way to breathe is to take deeper breaths that fill up the lungs with much-needed oxygen which, is in turn sent to the working muscles. This enhanced form of breathing is similar to that taught in yoga and Pilates and involves taking slower, deeper breaths that cause your tummy, not your chest to expand.To feel the difference between belly breathing and chest breathing, stand up and place one hand over your chest and one hand on your belly.Take a big breath until the hand on your belly lifts higher than the hand on the chest. It sounds easy, but if you’ve been a chestbreather for most of your life, it’ll take a while to develop this new technique. Once you’ve got it however, you may notice that exercise feels easier and performance improves. But that’s not the only bonus. A long, deep breath, followed by a similar-length exhale, has the potential to ease overall tension.This is an especially key technique to incorporate at the end of your exercise session when fatigue causes the body to tense up.

The BeneAts of D-Glucarate

E

very day, we are exposed to numerous toxins and each day we add to our toxic load... unless you make an effort to cleanse them out.

Toxins come from a wide variety of sources including: air and water pollution • insecticides, adhesives, paints, personal care products, sunscreen lotions • plastic containers, water bottles, baggies • pesticides in fruit and vegetables, processed foods, reNned oils • chlorinated water, • mercury dental Nllings • household cleansers • prescription and over-the-counter drugs • dry-cleaned clothing and on and on... For your good health, it is vitally important to continually cleanse your body of its toxic load. D-Glucaric Acid (D-Glucarate) is a natural substance found in fruits and vegetables, and our bodies also make small amounts, as part of a cleansing process called ‘glucuronidation’ one of the body’s natural and most important detoxiNcation processes. D-glucarate can help with:

deliver and the mouth is called upon to assist. During intense exercise only about a third of the oxygen consumed is through the nose. At rest, men and women breathe pretty much the same.When exercise becomes more intense however, women have to work much harder to than men to move air in and out of the lungs during exercise. Also worthy of note is that during exercise, women breathe more air in through their nose than men.They also start breathing through their mouth much later into a workout than men do. Much of the gender difference between breathing patterns is due to a difference in lung size.The bigger the lungs, the more air they can process, which means that men have the edge when it comes not only to the efficiency of sending oxygen to the working muscles but also in the volume of oxygen they are able to circulate.

Estrogen Removal - Many toxins increase xenoestrogens (estrogen-like chemicals). These disrupt hormone balance in men and women. D-glucarate aids estrogen removal to ease prostate conditions, PMS and other hormonal concerns.

Bodybuilders - D-glucarate improves physique by reducing your total estrogen load to lessen Muid retention and help reverse gynecomastia (man boobs). Lower Cholesterol - Clinical tests show that D-glucarate can reduce total cholesterol, LDL and triglycerides. Detoxi;cation - For people who suffer contamination from heavy metals and plasticizers, Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, auto-immune disorders or Nbromyalgia - the detoxifying effect of D-glucarate provides health beneNts by reducing your toxin burden.

ext time you are in a lineup at the grocery store, look at the headlines of the magazines. Amazingly these ridiculous headlines get people’s attention. Now that I have your attention, I will share one of the simplest exercise routines you can do at home or at the gym, and it only requires one piece of equipment everyone has. The great thing about this program is that it works for beginners and advanced exercisers alike. All these exercises can be modified to fit your fitness level, so talk to a professional about making them harder or easier. Exercise No. 1 is the squat. If you were stuck on an island and could only bring one exercise with you this would be it. This is a great exercise for the entire lower body and your core. Start with one set of 12 to 15 repetitions, coming down as far as you comfortably can. Exercise No. 2 is the pushup. This is a great upper body exercise that focuses on the chest, shoulders and triceps but is also great for your core and back. Most beginners will have to start by doing this from the knees. Complete as many as you can but stop one or two repeti-

To help ensure health and promote greater weight loss, here are some tips to employ: Get walking:Walking is a low-impact cardiovascular exercise that is beneficial to most people. Eat smaller portions: As we age we may simply need less food to fill us up.Try scaling back on portions. Make gradual changes: Sudden changes could be jarring to the body.

tions before you cannot complete anymore. Exercise No. 3 is the single arm bent over row with support from a table, chair or couch.This one requires special attention to your form.You should be bent over with your chest up and shoulder blades back throughout the exercise. One arm supports you and the other lifts the weight up toward your chest from the hanging down position. The major problem with this exercise is rounding of the back that places undue stress on your lower back.To avoid this, ensure your chest stays up and you shoulders blades are back throughout the movement. To start, you can lift a can of paint or a bucket. Add weight to the object as the exercise gets easier. Start with one set of 12 to15 repetitions per side. The last exercise is the plank. Like the pushup, most beginners will need to start with their knees on the floor. Start by holding the plank (in pushup form) for 30 seconds. Beginners should be able to repeat a circuit of these exercises two to three times, but even once is a great start for some people. A rest of 30 to 45 seconds between exercises should be enough. If you find the exercises are not challenging, you can add a march on the spot or jumping jacks in between. Both of these will improve your cardiovascular fitness and burn extra calories. No need to spend money on infomercial products and the latest craze when these exercises are still around and giving people great results.
