“Move! That! Bus!” With those three words, screamed by volunteers and supporters outside the Weeks’ family residence in Aldergrove, a mom and her children watched as their “new” home materialized before their eyes. After the yellow school bus blocking the view of Karen Weeks and her children Paige, Jesse, Alexandria, and Josh rolled away, the family was visibly moved by what the team from Aldergrove Seventh-Day Adventist Church – through its Acts of Kindness ministry – had done to their home. Prior to demolition one morning, the volunteers gathered outside the home to ask for help from a carpenter’s son born more than two millenia ago. “What a privilege it is to come here today, Lord, and serve…” said project coordinator Lorne Brownmiller. “Lord that’s what we’re here for. We want to do an exemplary job for Karen and her family… “Give us a spirit, Lord, of cooperation. Give us a spirit of brotherhood and sisterhood here today. Lord, give us safety on this project. Give us wisdom…” Each year, the Aldergrove church picks a family that owns its home but might not be able to – for financial or physical reasons

– be able to do maintenance or improvements. Leading up to this month’s Extreme Home Repair, taken on by several dozens of volunteers over a period of 10 days, the problems that made the Weeks’ home difficult to live in were numerous. They included electrical, a circa 1960 furnace, lack of insulation in the back bedroom, and poor attic ventilation coupled with old windows, allowing mold to grow in most of the rooms. When asked about the family’s health, Brownmiller learned that both Alexandria and Jesse suffer with asthma that is progressively getting worse. As Karen and her family toured their renovated home during the reveal Monday, she repeated the same three words: “Oh my gosh!” When the Langley Advance caught up to Karen, she was walking on air.

The Weeks family was nominated by two well-wishers. “There’s a lot of criteria that’s involved in being nominated or being received as a recipient,” Brownmiller said. “In going through a number of the criteria, the Weeks family met all of them, and due to a lot of the health struggles that the children were having, and the condition of the home – safety, mold, a very tired old furnace, windows that needed to be replaced – it was a project that we felt that we had the manpower, the sponsors, the support, that we could manage this year.” Brownmiller said he receives the most satisfaction from seeing “lives changed.” His voice tight with emotion, he added, “It’s wonderful to see the family come home, and it’s wonderful to see their faces as they embark on a new life, a new start.” The recipients of the home repair aren’t the only ones whose lives are enriched, Brownmiller said: “This is my seventh year, and to be involved in it and see the day-to-day stories, and the day-to-day caring, supportive, nurturing family that we come to know, here, there’s nothing in my life that compares to it.”

Accused’s DNA not on victim The trial of an Aldergrove man accused of two murders began this week in a New Westminster courtroom. by Matthew Claxton and Jennifer Saltman

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Friends and family of an accused killer will be called to testify during what is expected to be the lengthy trial of Davey Mato Butorac, which began Wednesday. Butorac, an Aldergrove resident, is charged with second-degree murder in the deaths of Sheryl Lynn Koroll, 50, of Langley and Gwendolyn Jo Lawton, 46 of Abbotsford. Lawton’s body was found in March of 2007, Koroll’s in July of the same year. Butorac sat quietly in the prisoner box while Crown attorney Matthew Stacey told a jury of six men and six women that he plans to call Butorac’s father Frank, a friend of the accused killer, the son of one of the victims, and a number of police officers. Forensic evidence will play a major role in the trial as well, Stacey said. The first two days of the trial focused on the discovery of Lawton’s body and the evidence found at the scene. The first witness was Cpl. Karen Verbeek, the first member of the Integrated Homicide

Public gets its say on school finances

Core cleanup on tap Downtown Aldergrove is getting a spit and polish. by Matthew Claxton

Residents have one chance to go over the Langley School District budget before it goes to a vote.

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

by Heather Colpitts and Matthew Claxton hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

The public’s chance to comment on the Langley School District budget plans comes next Tuesday evening, when the district hosts an open house. People can meet with finance department staff, senior management and school board trustees between 6:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. in the district office, 4875 222nd St. On Wednesday, the district issued a statement about finances and announced the open house. “We are entering a two stage process that will position Langley School District to continue providing excellent programs and services to students by making best use of its resources through sound financial decision-making.” The district has an $8.2 million debt and a $5.3 million shortfall for this school year that it must factor into its finances. The district has also made another $7 million in cuts for the 2010-11 budget so the books balanced heading into the next school year. Because the district must make up the $5.3 million shortfall within the same budget year, it cannot start making the debt cuts until the next school year (2011/2012). The Deficit Elimination Plan calls for another $3.75 million in cuts each year for three years. Langley has asked the Ministry of Education to give it four years to resolve its debt and awaits approval on its plan. The board will vote on its 2010/2011 budget at the June 15 meeting. The district’s budget for the next fiscal year must be finalMary Polak ized and submitted to the Ministry Langley MLA of Education by the end of June. The Langley Teachers’ Association is calling on local MLAs Rich Coleman and Mary Polak to get involved, firstly by attending the open house and then ensuring that the Auditor General’s department makes its Langley-related work public. “Langley teachers and members of your constituencies would appreciate your support for our request to the Auditor General’s department,” said the letter from LTA president Susan Fonseca and vice-president Gail Chaddock-Costello. Representatives of Langley MLA Mary Polak said she has never turned down a meeting about the school budget, as she’s never been invited to one. Polak is in Victoria as the legislature is in session, but a staff member is already planning to attend the budget open house. The teachers’ union is asking for the public release of the Auditor General’s findings for the district and for a public meeting to present the AG’s recommendations. “Langley teachers and your constituents would be pleased to see you in attendance supporting their call for adequate funding for all students, an open, transparent budget setting process, and a reversal of the deep cuts to services targeting Langley’s most vulnerable students,” the LTA letter said.

Courts protect grow operators In a remarkable bit of backwards thinking, the B.C. Court of Appeal has put hand-cuffs on a law enforcement initiative that was working to reduce the impact of marijuana grow operations in residential communities throughout the province. While we can understand the court’s willingness to value the right to privacy, it’s difficult to understand how that value can be allowed to supersede the safety concerns surrounding intense use of electricity – usually stolen and often dangerously rerouted – involved in many grow ops, and particularly those that easily draw the attention of authorities. It started with the case of Arkinstall et al v. Surrey et al, brought by two residents of Surrey who refused to allow safety inspectors to enter their home as long as they insisted on being accompanied by police officers. The inspectors were abiding by provisions of B.C.’s Safety Standards Act that – until struck down by the Appeals Court last week – allowed municipal electrical and fire inspectors to demand entry into anyone’s home to do an electrical safety inspection if, because of unusual power consumption, they suspected the home was being used to grow marijuana. The Appeals Court ruled that such inspections violate the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and that in future, administrative warrants will be required. That would still allow the inspections to take place, the court maintains, but would reasonably protect individual privacy. And it would give marijuana growers the heads up they need to clear out and restart their operations in a new neighbourhood. Once again, law enforcement gets the run-around, and criminals get the breaks. – B.G.

Carvolth Business Park

More impact on interchange

Dear Editor, A park-and-ride and transit exchange in the Carvolth Business Park, north of 86th Avenue and south of a proposed tunnel under Highway One, at 202nd Street, would connect to HOV lanes on Highway 1. The Ministry of Forest and Lands and the Transportation Investment Corporation and BC Transportation Financing Authority are behind the project. Why is the Ministry of Transportation not involved? This park-and-ride is to provide an east terminus for the HOV lanes and replace the Walnut Grove parkand-ride sacrificed by the Township to the Grosvenor/ BA Blacktop/McElhanney consortium for the 200th Street Interchange Project. Soon after opening, the interchange was considered the “second worst” in the Vancouver Metro area, just behind the Knight Street/ Marine Drive interchange. It already operates under near-gridlock conditions for much of the time, while the panel had stated that it would operate with “good” levels of service until 2021. The current park-and-ride might well worsen traffic operations even further. In 2001, nobody thought about the HOV lanes on Highway 1 to Langley. In hindsight, did the Grosvenor/BA Blackop/ McElhanney design result in a safe and effective interchange? Much more analysis needs

to be presented to the public, as it affects planning in Willoughby. Will the proposed parkand-ride have a favourable impact on the operation of 200th Street Interchange, or will it make matters worse? Without a traffic impact study, it may be just a “band-aid,” as the Langley Advance called it [Park and ride worth every bit, Nov. 24, 2009, Opinion]. My specific concerns are with 86th Avenue, both east and west of the intersection, proposed under this project. How would vehicles from the south get to and from the park-and-ride? Where would the bus routes be?

I also have a concern with “social housing” within the Carvolth Business Park. While I can see the logic of providing a “captive ridership” for people who do not have automobiles, so that they would live adjacent to the Transit Exchange, the intent of the Carvolth Business Park was never residential. Since returning from Arizona more than two years ago, I have only driven through the 200th Street interchange twice.

Aldergroeve

What does MLA do?

Dear Editor, After the four individuals who were evicted from their homes in Aldergrove recently [Seniors turned out of RV park, May 18, Langley Advance] I am left wondering just exactly what it is that Fort Langley Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman does for the people of this province as minister of housing. Those four individuals pay his salary, and they deserved a lot more from him as their representative, and he gave them nothing except the standard answer: they should file a grievance with the proper authority. Given that he is a former RCMP officer, it does not surprise me that he is totally useless as minister of housing. He was taught very well how to do nothing but make it appear that he is. He is also well-versed in the language of passing the buck. Apparently, he thinks everyone in Coleman Country appreciates the joke that is his website – obviously he is not in touch with his constituents who live in Langley and Aldergrove, but they will show him and Mr. Campbell that we are not to be trifled with.

Fill farming

Langley Speedway

Old raceway nicely restored

Dear Editor, Mike Heberts sums it up nicely [Langley still most exciting spot for racing, May 18 Letters, Langley Advance]. Langley Speedway was a great way to spend weekends. A carload of us would travel from Richmond for most races. It kept us out trouble. There really isn’t any replacement for it, and a whole generation has grown up without. I’ve moved on to drag racing, but wonder what became of all the racers and the fans of oval racing. I drove by there the other day and was quite surprised how well the place has been restored. I recall what it looked like all overgrown a few years ago. It’d sure be nice to have it reactivated. It’s in the area where many car enthusiasts live, and far enough from houses not to be a nuisance. Several old abandoned tracks have been successfully reactivated, such as Virginia International Raceway and Grand Bend Motorplex in Ontario. Tom Posthuma, Delta

damage to roads, property values, and quality of life within the Township. These are hardly NIMBY concerns. For Township employees to suggest otherwise is appalling and goes a long way to explain why people whose property has been damaged, or who observe abuse of permit terms and conditions, receive nothing but a shrug when they complain to the Township. Much work is being done by council to strengthen the bylaws. One wonders what the point of doing so is, if this is the attitude of those charged with enforcing them. I would suggest that some re-education of Township employees, and especially of those who manage their activities, is in order. H.J. Halliday, Langley

South Langley, including the neighbourhoods of Brookswood and Aldergrove, will get cheaper, government-subsidized broadband Internet access, MP Mark Warawa announced Thursday. PCC Communications has been

given a $3.7-million, federal grant to provide high-speed Internet to households in Aldergrove, Brookswood, and Fernridge. About 2,600 households will be eligible for the service, which will be in place by the end of 2011 at the latest. The project is one of 52 that will see more than 160,000 people given broadband access across the country. However, many of the residents affected by this announcement already likely have access to broadband Internet.

Telus spokesperson Shawn Hall said that if people can get a Telus cellphone signal, they can get broadband internet through a wireless device or computer peripheral right now. Some rural pockets don’t have wired access. In addition, most of the Lower Mainland already has access to ordinary broadband delivered through wires. Warawa said the broadband will open the door to business opportunities and improve quality of life for residents who receive the service.

Chronic short-staffing is crippling BC’s ambulance service – putting your care at risk. And now, the Liberals are taking 14 more ambulances off Metro Vancouver roads and cutting 36 paramedics – putting more pressure on remaining ambulance crews and making response times worse. All so they can save 3/100 of 1% of BC’s health budget.

Car torched in Murrayville

A stolen car was abandoned and torched at a gas station last Saturday. Firefighters and police descended on the Husky station on Fraser Highway, near 216th Street, at about 9:45 p.m. when the fire broke out, said Marks. The car, a 2005 Nissan Sentra, was stolen from Surrey. The heat from the fire damaged the gas station, but fortunately it did not spread to the pumps. Ferguson said the fire was deliberately set, but fortunately the car was parked far enough away from the pumps that it did not cause a serious threat. Anyone who can help police can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200. Or to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

The Liberal government KEEPS GETTING IN OUR WAY

A Willoughby home was burgled and torched on the last day of the long weekend. Police say the fire was first noticed sometime around 6:30 a.m. in the 7100 block of 205th Street. The owners of the home were not there at the time, and may have been gone for the long weekend. The fire required the services of three Langley Township firehalls to extinguish, and the building suffered about $150,000 damage, said assistant fire chief Bruce Ferguson. “The fire was definitely an arson,” Ferguson said. Police investigators came to the same conclusion, and they also learned that someone had broken into the home just prior to the fire, said RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks. The investigators have asked the owners for a list of missing property, to try and track down what was taken. A senior RCMP arson investigator has been assigned to work on the case, and the Surrey fire department’s arson dog – which is trained to search for traces of what may have started the fire – has also been brought in. Langley’s victim services organization is helping the homeowners. The fire was in the same neighbourhood, but several blocks away, from a suspicious fire that damaged a townhouse on the Easter long weekend. That fire came the same night that a firebug torched about 13 garbage containers around Langley City and the Township. Anyone with information on the arson and break in is asked to call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 or, to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-2228477.

A 14-year-old boy has some new wheels, that will help make life easier. Langley resident Stephen Berdusco has faced challenges that most kids his age can’t even imagine. That’s because Stephen suffers from Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, a degenerative disease primarily affecting the body’s voluntary muscles. Unable to walk, a wheelchair is his only means of getting around. The Envision Charitable Foundation has provided a grant for $5,800 so Stephen has a manual back-up chair. He has a motorized chair but the back-up gives him and his family added peace of mind. “Although Stephen has some pretty significant care needs, we still want to keep him at home and give him the best life we can,” said his mom Kathy. “The power chair gives Stephen the freedom and independence he needs, but if it were to break down, then Stephen is basically housebound.” For Kathy, the best part about the new chair is that it’s compatible with Stephen’s existing power chair. “We can take the seat from Stephen’s old chair and use it on the manual chair. That’s really important because the seat was specially designed for Stephen’s comfort. There’s also a tilt feature, so we can change Stephen’s position every so often to take the pressure off his spine.” The chair was donated through Muscular Dystrophy Canada’s Equipped for Life program, which provides individ-

Crooks see ‘For Sale’ signs as chance for theft Petty thieves are using the hot real estate market to rip off sellers. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

guide to

Seven Langley homeowners have been ripped off by thieves posing as potential home buyers in recent weeks, police say.

accredited collision repairs...

In every case, the victims were holding open houses or a realtor was leading the suspect through the home, said Cpl. Holly Marks, the Langley RCMP spokesperson. The thieves distracted the realtors, asking for a tape measure perhaps, then pocketed small but valuable items. Taken during the thefts were jewelry, designer purses, small electronics and laptop computers, and other miscellaneous items.

Police say that during a few of the incidents, the realtors became suspicious, and police have connected a dark coloured Ford Mustang to the crimes. The car has two occupants, both Caucasian women, one of them walking with a cane. However, the Mustang was not seen at every theft, Marks said. Now police are warning home sellers to be vigilant and to make sure visitors are escorted at all times while inside.

Open Letter to MLA’s Rich Coleman and Mary Polak, from the Langley Teachers’ Association May 28, 2010 Dear Mr. Coleman and Ms. Polak, As you are aware, Langley students now have the highest per capita debt of any students in the province. We are calling on you, as our MLAs, to engage with the education community in Langley to protect vital student services. The Langley Teachers’ Association encourages you to attend the Langley Board of Education’s Budget Open House on June 1st, at the School Board Office, at 6:30 pm. Normally, the Langley partner groups and the public review a draft of the Board’s budget in April and have an opportunity to provide input to the budget in May and June prior to final adoption. Unfortunately, at the last Board meeting, the public was informed there was no draft budget ready for 1st and 2nd readings in May and there will be no budget to review at the Budget Open House on June 1st.

Considering this budget will cut more than $7 million from Public Education in Langley in 2010/11, we are extremely alarmed that the Board of Education and Senior Management plan to bring forward a budget for 1st, 2nd and 3rd readings on June 15th without first having provided it to the public for their review and response. We know that the Auditor General’s department has been working here in Langley to review our ‘unique’ situation - our combined local debt due to ‘financial errors’ and the Ministry of Education’s underfunding of Public Education. Langley teachers and members of your constituencies would appreciate your support for our request to the Auditor General’s department. We are asking for the public release of their findings in School District #35’s financial department and a public meeting to present their recommendations. We expect the Auditor General’s department will recommend new policies and procedures to address Auditor Grant Thornton’s concerns regarding a lack of internal controls and the installation of new accounting software. The Minister of Education has stated that all districts need to seek ‘opportunities for administrative efficiencies’ and to ‘focus K-12 operating funding where it is needed – for students in the classroom’. In Langley, we do not believe that the $6.3 million dollar cuts proposed in the District’s ‘Program of Proposed Reductions for 2010-2011’, the additional $750,000 in cuts announced on Monday, April 26th, or the subsequent $19 per student reduction in funding to individual Langley schools, will result in meeting either of the Minister of Education’s stated goals. Langley teachers and your constituents would be pleased to see you in attendance supporting their call for adequate funding for all students, an open, transparent budget setting process and a reversal of the deep cuts to services targeting Langley’s most vulnerable students.

Gail Chaddock-Costello, Vice-President

Charities benefiting from thirst

Five and 10 cents at a time, one local business is helping needy groups fill their coffers. by Heather Colpitts

hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Thirst is good for the Langley Bottle Depot and several local community groups. The bottle depot staff spends each day surrounded by pop cans and juice bottles and jugs as they sort, compress and ship off these former food containers that are now being turned into cash for many local community groups. In 2009, the operation took in 17.421 million containers with deposits on them. Many of those empty containers went to help community groups. When someone drops off bottles but doesn’t want the cash back, the funds can be earmarked for a cause of the customer’s choice or divided up between different groups. The Langley depot, on Industrial Avenue, has more than 120 fundraising accounts on the books and also does campaigns for emergency causes. The depot recently ran a six-week campaign to raise funds for Haitian earthquake relief, sending $1,000 to the Red Cross.

The depot staff also have their own pet cause, the World Partnership Walk. Organized by the Aga Khan Foundation, the walk takes place in communities around the world, including 10 Canadian cities. The nearest event is May 30 in Vancouver. The walk raises funds that are used to fight poverty and has been going on for 25 years, the same amount of time the bottle depot has been open. Owner Hanif Devji moved here, taking over the operation from his uncle a decade ago and started doing the community fundraising at the same time. Sure, it takes added commitment and increases staff costs for all the sorting, but Devji said it’s important to him as a member of this community. “I love it here,” he said. And he knows the funds go to help everything from the food bank and medical causes to schools, children’s groups, and more. “It all goes to the community,” he noted. “We have to support the community.”

Devji also knows that his bottom line and being able to employ several people relies on having a sustainable business. “At the end of the day, it’s the community that’s supporting you,” he commented. It’s a community Devji adopted after living in some pretty interesting places and he is no stranger to recycling industries. Born in Kenya, he started in business at a family wholesaler before moving to Nairobi to start a small transport business in 1987. As the business grew, he was asked to transport waste paper, which only served to increase business further. The venture became the Kamogo Waste Paper Ltd., employing over 100 people in the mid 1990s as well as benefiting over 300 street boys who collected the paper for recycling. To diversify, he also started a restaurant in the industrial area where the operation was based and a stationery business, and oversaw two companies of friends who supported him when he started up Kamonga. All the while Devji was doing volunteer work.

Without question, word of mouth is a powerful tool when it comes to advertising a service or business (second only to advertising in the Langley Advance) [wink, wink, nudge, nudge]. So let’s perpetuate that word-ofmouth concept. I’m going to encourage you to tell us about your favourite Langley businesses. For the 13th year in a row, the Langley Advance is running its Best of the Best contest, and for this program to be effective we depend on you – the readers – to share your views. I have to tell you that it carries a lot of weight for me when I walk into a business and see that framed award (or in some cases multiple awards) proudly posted on the wall. It immediately tells me that average consumers – like me – have and will continue to visit that business. It’s a sign that the company offers quality service and/or products. If you’ve never been a judge before , here’s your chance. And the voting process is relatively easy. You can fill out the ballot on page A23 of today’s edition, or you can go online to www.langleyadvance.com, and click on the Best of the Best icon near the bottom right (under Features). Don’t worry about filling out each of the 100-plus categories. But definitely list the businesses that have made a lasting impression on you. Note there are three new categories this year. We’re asking about your favourite fish and chip restaurant, the best local winery, and the top ice cream joint in Langley. The deadline for voting is 5 p.m. on June 15. Then over the course of the following weeks, the votes will be tabulated, and the winners will be announced in a special edition of the Langley Advance on Aug. 31.

More than 700 of the city’s chefs, sommeliers and food critics gathered last week at the Sheraton Vancouver Wall Centre Hotel for the 21st annual Vancouver magazine restaurant awards. The gala brought them together to celebrate excellence in B.C.’s culinary industry, and Langley’s Bacchus Bistro – located at the Domaine de Chaberton – brought home a bronze in the best winery/vineyard dining category. “Between the Olympics and the recession, it’s been a whirlwind year in the food and beverage industry,” said Vancouver magazine editor-in-chief, Gary Stephen Ross. “Yesterday’s event offered everybody a well-deserved break and an opportunity to socialize, have fun, and reflect on their successes,” he said Wednesday. Blue Water Cafe + Raw Bar took top honours, being named Restaurant of the Year and winning gold in the best seafood category. It was also a finalist in best service, best regional, and best formal Japanese (Raw Bar at Blue Water). Blue Water’s chef, Frank Pabst, was also recognized as Chef of the Year, having played an integral role on Vancouver’s culinary scene since 1993. Originally from Germany, Pabst worked at Lumière and Pastis before joining Blue Water in 2003. Sinclair Philip was honoured with the lifetime achievement award, while his Sooke Harbour House won best on Vancouver Island. Since opening their restaurant and inn 31 years ago, he and his wife Fréderique have been internationally lauded for their pioneering use of fresh, local ingredients, many from their own garden. In a year that saw a variety of exciting new openings, Campagnolo won the title of best new restaurant. Thai hotspot Maenam took silver, while Jean-Georges’s Market won bronze, as well as nabbing design of the year. Perennial favourites Vij’s, Le Crocodile and Tojo’s won as best Indian, best formal French and best formal Japanese, respectively. CinCin and Araxi reclaimed their titles of best last course and best Whistler. Uva Wine Bar took gold as best bar/lounge.

A total of 116 Business Improvement Area (BIA) members, guests, and dignitaries – who gathered in the ballroom of the Coast Hotel and Convention Centre – were treated to a mini Monte Carlo complete with a roulette wheel and table games before electing a new board of directors. Seven DLMA directors have a year remaining in their two-year term, and four new directors were installed by acclamation on May 13. The current board now includes: Craig Davies (Design One Graphics Group); Heather Jenkins (1 Fish 2 Fish); Karla Barton (McBurney Lane Furniture and Interiors); Sonya Perkins (Forever Yours Lingerie); Helene Causton (Choo Choo’s restaurant); Carol Ward (Westminster Savings); Doedy Reisler (Cascades Casino); Jaye Lyonns (Tribal Spirit Gallery); Kevin Staples (Scotia Bank); Carrie Thachuk (The Passionate Home); and Bob Foster (Krazy Bob’s Music Emporium). For more about the DLMA, or the BIA, visit its website at: www.downtownlangley.com, or call executive director Teri James at 604-539-0133.

Raising dough for kids

Hats off to Cobs Bread, including the local store that raised just shy of $1,000 earlier this month with a two-day scone fundraiser. For the second year in a row, Cobs raised dough for Big Brothers and Big Sisters mentoring agencies across Canada, donating 50 cents from the sale of every scone – including a new kid-approved banana chocolate chip version – on May 8 and 9. Nation-wide, the food-based fundraiser put $25,122 into the mentoring agencies, that’s more than triple the 2009 tally. “We are so happy to have Cobs Bread supporting mentoring across Canada,” said Langley Big Brothers Big Sisters executive director Mary Reeves. “Not only is Cobs raising funds so local agencies can provide more children with the support of a positive role model, but they are also promoting the importance of mentoring and the need for more men and women to volunteer across the country.”

f you weren’t one of the approximately 200 people who snapped to it, you’re out of luck for the hottest ticket in Langley. The annual Lobstermania goes ahead this Saturday evening in the George Preston Recreation Centre. The lobsters have been ordered and the event is sold out.

hey’ve started their own clothing line, and they’re ramping up fundraising, in hopes of sending a squad of local dancers to Nashville for a line dancing competition. They’re the Gabby’s Girls, and they’re a volunteer dance team who were kicking up quite a storm at the Cloverdale Rodeo this past weekend with country music greats like Ridley Bent, as well as fellow Langleyites Whiskey Jane and McQueen. “We had such a great time at Cloverdale Rodeo this year. The crowd was great... and the weather held up quite nicely,” said team director Courtney Hogarth. While they received a stipend for performances at the rodeo last weekend, there are many other fundraising initiatives underway. An upcoming car wash and a new line of Gabby’s Girls clothing are all intended to generate some much-needed coin for the team, Hogarth explained. “We just started the clothing line because we frequently get asked where to buy our uniforms,” she said, noting they’re currently selling men’s muscle shirts, women’s tops, and underwear at events and online (www.gabbysgirls.com). “It is to raise money for the team and promote our name,” Hogarth added. “If it goes well, we are planning on expanding the line.”

ven as finishing touches were put on this year’s Langley Relay for Life set up, teams were still gathering cash. Team Britco held a recent concert and raised several hundred dollars to put towards its total. Team co-captain Jane Briscoe sang on stage as well as organizing the event. Britco is one of many corporate teams composed of people who work in the same office or workshop. You don’t have to look far to find people who have been affected by cancer. “It’s very close to my heart,” said Briscoe. Co-captain Marcy Billyard said she expects fundraising to start up in the fall again, with a pub night or garage sale. • Remember, Langley’s Relay for Life happens tonight, starting at 7 p.m. at McLeod Athletic Park.

OT loss to Burrards drops Thunder to 0-4 Langley’s search for its first win of the WLA season continues. by Troy Landreville

sports@langleyadvance.com

Judging from their 98 overtime loss to the Maple Ridge Burrards Wednesday at the Langley Events Centre, the Langley Thunder is showing signs of life defensively. Heading into the game, the Thunder allowed 44 goals in their opening three Western Lacrosse Association games of 2010 – an average of 14.6 goals against per outing. Versus Maple Ridge, they finally held an opponent to under 10 goals. Unfortunately for the Thunder, they didn’t get the result and saw their record drop to 0-4. The Burrards led 7-5 after 40 minutes of play.

Maple Ridge’s Dayne Michaud made it 8-5 at the 5:13 mark of the third period before the Thunder mounted a comeback. Goals by Ian Poole, Garrett Billings, and Alex Turner sent the game into overtime. Three minutes and 45 seconds into the extra session, Randy Daly scored the game winner on a Maple Ridge powerplay as the Burrards eked out a one-goal victory. The Thunder suffered a letdown in the second period. Leading 4-3, they allowed four unanswered Burrards goals – including three in a span of 58 seconds – as the visitors moved ahead 7-4. The Thunder, which occupies the WLA cellar, will look for a first win of the season Saturday when the players visit Coquitlam to play the host Adanacs, who are off to a perfect 3-0 start to their season.

The 22 Team Canada players will continue training in preparation for the upcoming 2010 world ringette championship, being held in Tampere, Finland from Oct. 31 to Nov. 6. “The team staff are excited to have the opportunity in the coming months to work closely with a very talented and dedicated group of high performance athletes,” Team Canada coach Lyndsay Wheelans said. “The 2010 Canadian national ringette program has brought together veteran players with skilled newcomers to create a team that has both experience and energy. We are confident that this is a team capable of bringing a gold medal back to Canada.”

Mustangs dominate Jr. Olympics meet Langley’s 13- and 14-year-old girls broke a 4x100m relay time record at the meet.

Girl power carried members of the Langley Mustangs to top spot at the Junior Olympics track and field meet at Bear Creek Park in Surrey earlier this month. With a point total of 271, the Mustangs’ girls took first place over 22 teams at the May 15-16 competition. Leading the way were Mariana Martinez (first in the 800m and 1500m), Hanna Rolfe (first in high jump), Jaclyn Pauley (first in long jump), and Alexa Robichaud (first in shotput). The Mustangs’ 13- and 14-year-old girls broke the meet’s existing 4x100m relay time. Clocking in at 55.73 seconds, Miranda Gregory, Robyn Buckingham, Rebecca Lindsay, and Emma Harrison now hold the record time to beat. The Mustangs’ boys placed second in team standings with 140 points. First place finishes came from Drey Blair in shotput, Nathan Gregory in triple jump and Josiah Perovich in the 1500m. This junior development group of nine- to- 14-yearolds is looking ahead to its mext meet, hosted by the Coquitlam Cheetahs June 12-13.

It doesn’t get any better than this for Trinity Western University men’s volleyball recruit Devyn Plett. Quite simply, this past year could only be defined as “the perfect season.” The 6’2” setter, who will join the Spartans this fall, capped off an unbelievable season of achievements on May 16 by leading his Winnipeg Strike club team to the U18 national championship in Abbotsford and, in the process, being named tournament MVP. It’s been a storybook season for Plett, who will graduate from Mennonite Brethren Collegiate Institute in June. Earlier, he helped his team win the club provincial championship, while garnering MVP honours

there as well, and he won the Manitoba high school championship with MBCI, where he earned the nod as tournament MVP. During his high school season, Plett was named MVP at two different tournaments, while also picking up all-star recognition at his team’s home tournament. He was also selected as the Winnipeg Sun’s No. 1-ranked player in the province and was the recipient of the Dennis Nord Award for displaying excellence in academics, athletics, and leadership. “It doesn’t get better than the year this young man put together,” said Spartans coach Ben Josephson. • More online at: www. langleyadvance.com, click on “Sports”

Fundraiser

Bikers ride for kids A good time was had by all during a fundraising motorcycle ride through parts of the Fraser Valley on May 16.

Motorcycle enthusiasts rolled through the Fraser Valley May 16 to benefit kids at BC Children’s Hospital – and by all accounts, the 18th annual Gord Heppler Memorial Run was a huge success. For the third year in a row, riders were blessed with a gorgeous sunny day. The predicted rain may have scared off some, but even so, the 108 riders, 31 passengers, and four drivers enjoyed a very pleasant day. Many participants said the ride route took them to areas they had never been before. With riders, passengers, drivers, non-riding participants, and helpers, there were roughly 188 people in attendance at the Run. Once again, the fundraiser featured a breakfast, ride, barbecue, silent auction, and draws for prizes. At the final presentations people from other motorcycle clubs were able to promote their upcoming events. Also, Kitty Cheung, philanthropy officer for BC Children’s Hospital, expressed the hospital’s gratitude to the crowd. “Thanks to everyone who attended, our terrific sponsors, and people

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

May 30 - June 5

Aries March 21 - April 19: Be on your toes Sunday/Monday, respond to higher-ups, be ambitious. Fun, light romance, optimism, fresh horizons buoy your heart Tuesday/Wednesday! All this hopefulness still brings you to a choice between two people, prospects, actions, just as it has since last October. But this choice is about to be eradicated (by next week). Something major is about to end. Be gracious about it. You might be anxious about it this Thursday to Saturday, as your energy, charm and self-confidence fall briefly. (Rest, don’t act.) You’re about to be free, cheerful, hopeful, next week into September!

Cancer June 21-July 22: Lie low, rest, contemplate, seek spiritual awareness, be charitable, deal with government, large corporations and institutions. Fulfil obligations, but don’t volunteer for more. Your solitude will be lightened two ways: 1) it’s sweet; and 2) talkative friends seek you out. Use this quiet period to plan, because next week into September will offer luck in career, business and prestige arenas. Approach others, co-operate Sunday/Monday: that person could bring you significant benefits, wisdom. Secrets, sex, big finances fill mid-week. You reach mellow understanding Thursday to Saturday.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The weeks ahead feature love, wisdom, logic, higher education, far travel, legal and cultural events. June to September boosts your luck in relationships, opportunities, litigation, contracts, public interfacing and relocation. (These might arise through a conversation, or “casual” friend.) To increase this luck, seek partnership, go outward, further the desires of others. It’s a mere foretaste of 2011’s luck, unless you were born around Sept. 2326 (in which case it could be major now). You might fear “partnering” or an Aries all June/July – trust your instincts. Love, midweek.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: You face several weeks of chores. A Gemini would make a great helper, if you can enlist him/her. Your energy and effectiveness are tops Sunday/Monday, so start projects, tackle “feared” chores. (But sign nothing, nor woo anyone, Sunday.) Chase money Tuesday/Wednesday – Tuesday better. Travel, details, reports, communications draw your focus Thursday-Saturday, not importantly. This week is the last of 30 that brought a powerful financial, life-change, research, intimate, mysterious trend. Now doubts arise about what you did, committed to: be calm, good luck will “rescue” you!

Taurus April 20-May 20: Chase money, buy, sell, ask for a pay raise, cultivate new clients, etc. A long, friction-prone period in your domestic, realty and family arenas will turn to harmony by next week onward. Communications, travel and relations with siblings are sweet, affectionate all week, but don’t let affection nudge you into making a promise or a new relationship (or embarking on a trip) Sunday – there’s a hidden trap here. Sunday/Monday are mellow, wise. Be ambitious Tuesday (especially) and Wednesday. Popularity, happiness, flirtation, entertainment and bright horizons come Thursday-Saturday!

Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your hopes rise on a breeze of popularity, wishful thinking, light romantic feelings and just an all-round joy in life! Since last October, you’ve been scowling (and red-faced, physically) more than usual, but next week dissolves this influence, and new friends will flow in! (They flow your way this week, too, especially Tuesday/Wednesday – but “friend” isn’t the word: enemy or intense attraction are more accurate terms.) Tackle chores Sunday/ Monday. Exciting meetings, opportunities mid-week. Mysteries, intimacy, significant choices/commitments arise Thursday onward: go slow, reject fantasy.

Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The weeks ahead accent romance, creativity, charming kids, speculation, sports, pleasure and beauty – you’re on a winning streak! But retreat Sunday/Monday: rest, contemplate, tidy up neglected places and friendships. Your energy and charisma surge upward Tuesday/Wednesday – chase any goal you want, including romance! For seven months you’ve faced impatient opposition from others (or heightened but fractious attraction). This “angry” trend dissolves next week. In June/July, you’ll be exploring or talking about secrets, intimacies, large sums of money. Co-workers remain affectionate.

Gemini May 21-June 20: Your energy, charisma, effectiveness and clout hit a high note! Charge forth, accomplish, start significant new projects, demand action, ask favours, see and be seen. You’ll impress others! Your money picture looks good, but don’t make decisions/plans nor take action here Sunday, as a subtle trap lurks. You’re still restless, travelprone, but this will ebb next week onward, as will your tendency to be a little forceful in speech and writing. June/July might bring an end to dealings with an Aries. Finances, sex, research Sunday/ Monday. Mellow love mid-week. Be ambitious Thursday onward.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Ambition, prestige, community status, career, dealings with authorities and higher-ups, parents, judges, bosses – these fill the weeks ahead. Sunday/Monday are romantic, creative, kids charm you – but commit to nothing Sunday (a subtle trap lurks). Tackle chores Tuesday/Wednesday. You’ll meet both opportunities and opposition Thursday to Saturday – be diplomatic. For seven months sex, intimacy, large finances, investments and lifestyle choices have irked, restricted, frightened you. In June/July you’ll seize these matters with a successful brew of courage and (sexual) magnetism! Big changes!

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The weeks ahead hold mysteries and demand research. Use your interior radar; look for skeletons, solutions and treasures. Commitment, consequence, intimacy, large finances, lifestyle changes, deep health and depth psychology, occultism, hidden meanings and “eureka” moments will occur. Your logic and intuition will operate smoothly and well, but careful Sunday, when these represent a possible trap. Write reports, notes (or travel) Sunday/ Monday. Take a deep rest Tuesday/Wednesday. Your romantic, creative, risky, winning side emerges Thursday to Saturday. Angry or impatient bosses withdraw soon. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Make no money agreements/commitments Sunday, but do chase the stuff (or buy things) Monday. The weeks ahead hold excitingmeetings,opportunities,relocation,negotiations, dealings with the public – and opposition, perhaps enmity. Marriage and divorce. So much depends on your life thus far, and your nature. Investments, intimacy, lifestyle changes hold a sweet trap Sunday, sweet success Monday. Talk, travel mid-week. Retreat to reorganize home, business foundations, to recuperate Thursday onward. A legal fight might end soon. Be cautious with bosses, judges June/July.

Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Minor wishes come true Sunday/Monday.June accents your domestic scene,real estate, security, food, diet, mother nature, gardening, nurturing, infants and toddlers. You’ve experienced a streak of freedom or of expanded, hopeful vision this year – now, in June, you need to decide who and what to stick with, and who/what is stale, restricting you. Two things happen in the coming weekend (June 5/6): three months of good money and sensual luck begin; and two months of heightened relationship intensity commence. Money and love could mingle. You will be very attracted, or angry. Friday gives clues. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014

On cooking

WALNUT GROVE

Water offers no flavour to dish

H

BOTTLE DEPOT

ow many recipes have you seen that list water as an ingredient? A pasta sauce recipe, for example, may say to add a cup of water. How much flavour does water have? None. I am always preaching to be innovative while cooking and add ingredients other than water such as wine, broth, beer, juice, etc. because they have more flavour. Although most can, some recipes cannot adapt to this type of modification. It will usually depend on the amount of seasonings/flavour already in the dish. The first thing to examine is the amount of water the recipe suggests. If the amount is of minuscule proportion, then typically replacing the water shouldn’t be a concern. The choice of distinctive liquid would accent the existing flavours without risk of overpowering of the dish. If the recipe states a large quantity of water, then one must examine what the other ingredients are and how much flavour they will impart on their own. This is not as complicated as it may sound. The most effective way to determine if a recipe can accept any variation is to make it the way it is written first and then listen to your taste buds. Could it use more flavour? If so, what would complement it and how pungent/ mellow can the liquid be? Maybe just replacing a portion of the water would be the solution or leaving the recipe in its original state is just fine. Make notes in your cookbooks for future reference. Rice cooked in chicken stock, for example, has more flavour than if it was cooked in only water. I know that may seem quite obvious, so let me give you

On Cooking by Chef Dez

some ideas with the following liquids: Red wine or dark beer are great additions to red meat and tomato dishes, such as pasta sauce, gravies, chili, stir-frys, soups, stews, etc. A general rule of thumb is the stronger the flavours in a certain dish, then the more robust wine/beer it can handle as an ingredient. White wine is better suited to cream sauces, poultry gravies, lighter soups, and seafood. Broth, stock, or vegetable juices can be paired up with certain dishes, based on the flavours you want to impart, albeit chicken, beef or vegetable. Broth/stock is an option for almost any savoury dish. Fruit juices can also be used in savoury dishes (savoury is the opposite of sweet). A delicious example would be an orange ginger stir-fry made with orange juice. These are only suggestions as there are countless combinations to try. Keep tasting and taking notes. Your cookbooks may turn out looking like high-school textbooks, but for the sake of better eating – it is worth it. • More online at: www.langleyadvance.com, click on “Living”

A hall table was once nothing more than corrugated cardboard, styrofoam and glass. Rolling the cardboard into three large tubular shapes, notches were edged out for the glass. The styrofoam was cut into shapes resembling concrete bases for the columns to be mounted on.

on her hips – as if to say, “I am woman, hear me roar.” And yes, she has a chicken’s head. I’m not sure if it has anything to do with the kitchen island once being a chicken coop! Violette explained that the Chicken Lady embraces her fears and then flies away. With many of the art pieces and recycled furniture, Violette feels it’s important to “follow your bliss.” She has never tired of the brilliant colours that adorn every room and, if anything, it is her way of expressing who she is. Over the years, Violette feels her art has transformed her. She inspires the young and the old and, most of all, teaches us how to make something out of nothing. – California born and raised, Karly Paul-Morris is owner of Karly’s Kreations, an interior design company that specializes to residential design and decor consulting throughout the Lower Mainland and a regular columnist for the Langley Advance.

In the garden

Deck plants create ambience

Container gardens can add appeal to decks, balconies. by Gerald Filipski Canwest News Service

H

aving plants on your balcony or deck has far-reaching appeal. Not only do the living plants appeal to the eye, but they create a certain ambience that only plants can provide. It was my lovely wife who pointed this out to me. We were recently driving by a large, multi-floor condominium complex and she noted that the balconies that had plants on

them had greater appeal because, she said, the plants “made it look like someone lived there.” Often, the best intentions of condo gardeners can go astray due to poor planning. Growing plants on a balcony or even a deck requires a certain amount of effort in the planning of the plantings but also in the maintenance of the plants. As we move into summer, this might be a good time to review what are the basics of successfully planning and growing that balcony sanctuary garden. By now some of you may have already tried and had some problems. continued on page H10…

…continued from page H9 This checklist may help you avoid the same problems you’ve experience in past: Water, water, water! Perhaps the most common reason for failure in container gardening is the lack of consistent water. The other day a reader asked what is the best tip I could offer for growing plants in containers. The answer was easy. Water is by far the most important thing for container plants, which can dry out quickly because of their limited capability to hold water. To compensate you should be watering every day in the summer and if your location is a hot one you may have to water some containers twice a day. • If water is important then a close second would have to be drainage. Most plants will not tolerate having their feet wet. Make sure that your containers have adequate drainage holes. If you are going to use drainage plates to catch the water make sure you empty those plates to keep the container and plant from sitting in water. • Use a high-quality soil mix with added organic matter. Using regular garden soil is not recommended for container grown plants. This type of soil tends to get compacted in containers and is very heavy. The weight can be a problem on balconies especially if you have several containers. I like to use a good soilless planting mix and adding compost to that mix. The ratio is two parts of mix to one part compost. • Avoid using terra cotta or small planters as they dry out far too quickly. Plastics and the new cast resin or fibreglass containers are the best. They are lightweight and hold the moisture in very well. • Mulch can help reduce the frequency of watering. A simple bark mulch on the top of a pot can reduce moisture loss due to

Far too many gardeners think that a favourite plant that prefers full sun will grow on their shady balcony. This leads to disappointment and frustration. Remember that it is not the plant’s fault but the gardener’s. Doing your homework is critical and this planning will result in a far more successful garden. – Gerald Filipski is a member of the Garden Writers Association of America.

LANDSCAPE TIPS FROM YOUR TRUE ONE-STOP LANDSCAPE PROS Retaining Wall

Interlocking concrete blocks make constructing a retaining wall easy to do. You can make planters in the middle of your lawn, terraced walls against your house, or build a large retaining wall on a slope.

Pond

Whether you want to build a KOI POND or a WATER GARDEN, or you just like listening to the sound of a waterfall, we can help you out with both the know how and the materials.

Pond Supplies

We carry ALL the supplies necessary for the needs of the Koi Pond and the water gardener. All of our pond supplies such as plants, koi fish, pumps, liners, and filtration systems and more are available at very affordable prices.

Patio

Paver stones are not only attractive, but they are virtually indestructible and low maintenance. The individual nature of the stones allows you to alter or add to your design at any time without any disruption, giving you unparalleled freedom.

Organic Soil

Why settle for dirt? Get weed free organic soil and mulches.

Bark Mulch and Nuggets

Organic Mulching is one of the best ways to conserve water in your garden.

Rocks and Boulders

Crushed limestone is ideal for creating walkways or parking spaces; limestone packs to a very solid surface. Crushed chips are ideal for use as a base for concrete segmented retaining walls such as Allan Block, Pisa, and Terralite. Lava rock makes an attractive addition to any garden or decorative area.
