Langley Centennial Museum is adding old news photos to the historic record.

Cox is the daughter-in-law of late Advance editor E.J. Cox, who was responsible for the very first edition of the paper to hit the streets in 1931, 79 years ago this month. “Her memory is absolutely phenomenal,” by Matthew Claxton Edwards said of Betty, who not only rememmclaxton@langleyadvance.com bers a lot of the Advance photos from when Piecing together the history of Langley they were taken, but notices small details: should be easy, if you have a vast archive of in one picture, she spotted the hood of her photos stretching back decades. husband’s car.

For example, few weeks this week Edwards was sorting through a earlier. pile of 40 photos taken during the 1960 May Day celebrations in Fort Langley. For those that aren’t dated, Edwards is leaning on a core group of museum volunteers, all of them longtime Langley residents whose memories stretch back decades. Volunteers lending hands to the photo project, Alice Johnson, Ellen Worrell, Doris Blair, and Betty Cox, are part of a “history group” that aids museum staff on a regular basis.

Edwards has been working on the project since May, and is now becoming an expert at identifying famous Langley residents of past decades. She easily tells apart D.W. Poppy Sr. and Jr., for example. The photo project is about more than identification. “It’s also preservation,” Edwards said. The photos are often unique, and as newspaper photos, they tend to be of higher quality than snapshots, and they focus on community life. A digital record will now be available, in case anything ever happens to the originals, as well. That will help preserve Langley’s vanishing history. “There are photographs of buildings that don’t exist anymore,” Edwards said, “or buildings that have burned down.” Once each photo has been identified and dated, it will be given a unique number and officially added to the collection, along with everything known about it. If and when more information emerges about the photo in the future, it will be easy to find it and add the data. The goal is to finish the project by the end of December. Identification of the boxes of photos provided to the museum by the Langley Advance has been made possible by a $7,000 grant from UBC’s Irving K. Barber Learning Centre Digitization Project.

Polak axes bizarre program

Langley MLA Mary Polak said her ministry will immediately stop using a controversial device that supposedly measures arousal in underage sex offenders. Mary Polak Polak, head Langley MLA, and of the Ministry Children and Family of Children Development Minister and Family Development, said she was concerned to learn that the penile plethysmograph is being used on teenaged boys. “I asked staff to examine the use of this procedure, and based on the information provided, I have instructed ministry staff to permanently stop any use of this procedure on youth in provincial facilities in British Columbia,” Polak said in a press release. She said the nature of the procedure is “questionable,” and that outweighs any possible benefits. The plethysmograph is attached to male genitals so technicians can measure the children’s state of arousal when they are shown photographs of adults, children, and even babies in varying states of undress, while at the same time being read a story that describes coercive or forced sexual activity. • More online

Traffic

Serious accidents plague roadways Crashes involving trucks, bicycles, and cars kept police and paramedics busy this week. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

It was a tragic and often chaotic week on major roads in and around Langley. On Monday, July 26, two people were rushed to hospital, one by Air Ambulance, after a semi-tractor slammed into a mini-van near the Langley-Surrey border, at 22nd Avenue and 192nd Street in a Surrey industrial park. The truck driver had failed to stop at the intersection, according to Surrey RCMP. Three young people in the mini-van, all members of the same family, where checked over but not seriously hurt. The other victims were expected to survive. On Tuesday, July 27, a 65-year-old man was riding his bicycle on the freeway near the Mt. Lehman interchange in Abbotsford, when he was hit by a five-ton flatdeck truck. The cyclist, Peter Boersma, 65, died of his injuries later Matthew Claxton/Langley Advance the same day. A sedan was mangled by a collision at The fatal collision the corner of 200th Street and 66th backed up traffic Avenue. Two occupants were taken to through Langley, as hospital. police closed off traffic as far back as the 264th Street interchange in Aldergrove. Bike riders are banned from the highway. Police are still investigating. Anyone who may have witnessed the fatality and has not spoken to a police officer is asked to contact RCMP Cst. Monty Zimmer at 604-702-4039. On Wednesday, metal thieves caused chaos for travellers. Thieves made off with Telus wire from lines near the highway. They caused damage to utility poles, and the highway was temporarily closed shortly after noon in the eastbound lanes near Aldergrove, while Telus crews repaired the damage. Police have not reported any arrests linked to the metal thefts. Later that afternoon, another major crash sent two more people to hospital, with the Air Ambulance called in for one victim. The crash took place just after 3:30 p.m., according to Langley RCMP Cst. Darren Forsyth. Dozens of emergency workers, including RCMP, firefighters, and four ground ambulances, descended on the scene after the crash, surrounding a mangled maroon mid-sized sedan. Both of the victims appeared to have been in that car. A van was also involved in the crash. The victims are expected to survive their injuries, Forsyth reported. The RCMP are still investigating. On Thursday morning, a crash in the eastbound lanes of the TransCanada, east of 232nd Street, snarled traffic for several kilometres.

Installation Hints • Laminates are “floating” floors, which means they don’t have to be nailed or glued to the subsurface. This makes them noisier than other coverings, so use QuietWalk underlay from Windsor Plywood, to absorb the sound. • Let the planks sit in their closed box for at least 48 hours before you install them, so they’ll adapt to the room’s climate. • Inspect each plank for damage and differences in colour and thickness before installation. These problems are tough to fix after installation.

Keep your floors looking new • Clean only with a laminate floors cleaner. Spray the cleaner onto the mop or cloth, not directly on to the floor! • Never clean laminates with abrasive cleansers, scouring pads, wax, polish or mop and shine products. • To prevent scratching, pickup floor-protector pads from Windsor Plywood. Place the pads under the legs of tables, chairs and other furniture. Shell Busey - host of the Home Discovery Radio Show

The Canadian flag that now stands proud in a display cabinet at the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 21 was carried to Europe back in 1995 for the 50th anniversary celebrations marking the end of the Second World War. One of the men who carried it back then, Bill Holliday, will once again have the honour of carrying the Maple Leaf Aug. 8. That’s when the Legion parades from its building on Eastleigh Crescent to its new branch at 20570 56th Ave. “For the parade, we’ll have our pipe band, our colour party, our executive and also our veterans,” explained Legion president Bill Kerton. “We’re also asking our cadets to be involved.” After the parade, the community is

invited to the new site for treats, tours and more. St. Catherine’s Elementary School student MacKenzie Wynne, the Langley student whose essay won the national Legion Remembrance Day contest, will be part of the festivities. The parade, and celebration after at the new branch caps off several hectic months as the branch sold its one-acre Eastleigh Crescent site and did a complete gut on its new building. As the building nears completion, the members are preparing to move the contents of the old site to the new location. The cenotaph outside the Legion is moving, too. The memorial marker is meant to honour Canadians killed in wars. Remembrance Day 2010 will be at the new site with the moved cenotaph but the intention after that is to have the services at Douglas Park Spirit Square.

B.C. Day bloody long weekend They’re going to get you. Langley RCMP want you to know that, if you drink and drive, they will probably catch you – if you’re lucky. Numbers released by the local police and ICBC don’t look good for drinking drivers who don’t get caught right away. In Langley alone there are, on average each year, about 170 motor vehicle crashes in which alcohol is a contributing factor. Those 170 crashes each year will involve injuries to 102 people. That’s a lot of people who would not have been hurt – many of them seriously – if the drivers had been lucky enough to have been caught by police, instead of by their own alcohol-impaired judgment. And worse still, three people will die. That’s just in Langley in an average year. Multiply those numbers by communities throughout the province, and the statistics become almost unbearable to read. Consider these numbers, just bearing on the B.C. Day long weekend: ICBC statistics for B.C. show an average of nearly 1,800 crashes per year, from 2005 through 2009. The pain and suffering caused by all those motor vehicle accidents are exacerbated by the difficulty in keeping up with the demand for blood in hospital operating rooms to replace what crash victims spill on the highway. Some of those victims will need up to 50 units of blood – that’s the equivalent of the amount of blood collected from 50 donations – to survive. That’s why Canadian Blood Services has put out the call for blood donors this week, in preparation for one of the worst weekends for highway carnage each year. Call 1-888-2-DONATE (1-888-236-6283) to make an appointment It’s one way you can save lives. Another is to stay away from your car if you’ve been drinking, or stay away from alcohol if you have to drive. And be careful out there: watch out for the idiots who’ll never learn. – B.G.

Aldergrove water

Conflict claim short on facts

Heritage

Historic building cast aside

Dear Editor, Over the weekend, a building in Willoughby, known as “Nish’s Garage,” was demolished. It was on McLarty Road (80th Avenue), where it had stood since being built around 1930, making it one of the oldest buildings in Willoughby and probably one of the oldest buildings in the Township. It wasn’t a thing of beauty, and it had never made the list of heritage buildings. It had been built as a working garage where local farmers could take their farm wagons and equipment to be repaired, and in later years, people took their cars and trucks there, and you could always get air for your bicycle tires. Even if you broke a handle on a cooking pot, Jimmy Nish would weld it back on. In the past few years, the old building went through hard times, even being used as a grow op at one point. I sort of think a building that was around 80 years old had the right to be left alone. But local history doesn’t mean much to developers, especially when they can’t make money from it. So it’s sort of sad to drive by the spot now, to see a pile of rubble where 80 years of memories were. Of course more houses that the developers and politicians can cram into an area mean more people paying property taxes – so that everyone’s property tax can be reduced, eh? Brian Johnson, Willoughby

been and still is threatened by the impact of agriculture, septic systems, and road runoff, whether it be contamination or overuse. To date, my business has invested a substantial amount of money to provide its own water, digging a deeper well below the Hopington Aquifer and installing water purification systems. Whether or not the new waterline passes by my farm won’t have any impact on our current water needs. I believe we need to put aside our NIMBY attitudes and work to find solutions that will lessen the impact on the Hopington Aquifer, and provide safe, clean water to the residents in the eastern portion of the Township. There are many issues that could be construed as “conflict of interest.” Would we ask councillors to step down if a decision on a new park was being considered in their neighbourhood? Allow our councillors to make the decisions necessary to run the Township. Personal attacks against councillors and their families are no way to solve the problems facing Langley. It is sad that Councillor Kim Richtor felt it necessary to step away from the decision-making process. We vote for our councillors to conduct the Township’s business, and rely on everyone to be involved. Let’s not be too hasty in raising the conflict-of-interest flag before getting all the facts straight. Jack Froese, J. D. Farms Ltd.

Property rights

Plenty of opportunities in parks

Dear Editor, I assume your letter-writer who inferred the “little people” are not allowed public access (with dogs!) to what I know as Sunrise Lake [Snobbery closes opportunity, July 23 Letters, Langley Advance] does not realize that it and many other small lakes in South Langley were developed 20plus years ago, mostly from ex-gravel pits. They were privately built and sold. The owners purchased the homes and the land covered by water, so the lakes are completely privately owned and maintained – including bank maintenance, landscaping, and fish-stocking. Most of the homes are assessed a high taxes for the privilege. It is totally private property, for which most home insurers dictate strict fencing requirements to keep the public out, due to fear someone drowning or suffering other mishaps, and to keep them from damaging extensive bird and wildlife habitats with errant dogs or any other vandalism. The “local elite” spend a great deal of time and money enhancing the environment around them to keep the waters beautiful and contribute to the wildlife and nesting areas of the entire area.

TODAY’S FLYERS... in the

I do not live on that lake, but I applaud the residents for keeping their homes and lake so well, and I benefit from the surrounding increase of neighbourhood pride at such a lovely spot. I am not jealous of their fortunes and do not feel jilted that I cannot trespass on their land. I do respect the rights of others and their property. Aldergrove Lake Regional Park is public, and is maintained by the GVRD and controlled by representatives from all Lower Mainland areas. I would assume this is in perpetuity, and it would not be sold to private concerns. Enjoy Campbell Valley Regional Park and its immense areas. Stroll the many wonderful streets, waterways, and trails in these areas, but please don’t forget your baggy for your dog’s “business.” T. Snell, Fernridge [Note: Find more letters on this topic online at www.langleyadvance.com, and find the editor’s comments at his blog, Editor’s Notes, at http://tiny.cc/ehh4e ] For more letters to the editor visit... www.langleyadvance.com

implied that my association with Ms. Dornan would somehow influence the councillor in voting for or against one or the other water routes to Aldergrove, through the Salmon River Uplands. Although I am honoured that someone would give me credit for having that much influence, I have not supported one route over the other. My support for Ms. Dornan’s election bid was because of my respect for her ability to make sound, unbiased decisions based on existing evidence. My family and I have been farming on the corner of 52nd Avenue and 248th Street for the past 31 years, and we respect the fragile ecosystem in which we live. The Hopington Aquifer has

Dear Editor, In response to Gloria Stelting’s letter to the editor [Aldergrove water: Conflicts everywhere, July 16 Letters, www.langleyadvance.com], I felt I needed to provide a little clarification on some of her assumptions. First of all, I am a friend of Township Councillor Bev Dornan, and was very pleased when she asked me to help her in her successful bid to run for office. I am impressed that Ms. Stelting elevated me to the position of campaign manager, but I only worked to place Ms. Dornan’s campaign signs throughout the Township, in keeping with that age-old election sign tradition.

Voted Best Hotel in Langley 6 Years in a Row. THE WORLD’S LARGEST HOTEL CHAIN ®

Ko-Sheung Ko of Surrey was among the artists who sold his work and demonstrated in the artisans venue at the Aldergrove fair.

Organizers say this year’s Aldergove fair drew up to twice the number of people who showed up last year.

Mike Robinson was blindsided Saturday, and not by the record crowd of people who attended the Aldergrove Fair Days. Instead, it was the volunteer of the year award bestowed upon him that sent him into a state of shock and surprise. Not usually one to be tongue-tied, Robinson was apparently at a loss for words when he was called up to receive the Hilda Reddick Community Service Award during the fair’s opening ceremonies Saturday. “All organizations rely on a group of volunteers and every year, there’s one volunteer who stands out, who goes that extra mile with an extra smile. That’s Mike,” said Robin McIntosh, president of this year’s Aldergrove Festival Society. It was an honour, McIntosh said, to recognize Robinson for just a little of what he’s done to promote Aldergrove through the years. “He’s so cheerful, and he’ll lend a hand to the community, wherever it’s needed. He never says no,” McIntosh added. “Mike Robinson epitomizes for all of us how volunteers are the backbone of every organization, like the festival days.” Robinson, who is past president of the festival society, was touched by the recognition – once the initial shock wore off. “That was the first accolade I’ve had from Aldergrove, so it’s really cool,” he told the Langley Advance as he ran off to host the new farm boy or girl challenge. On those late nights, while he’s toiling away at his computer on volunteer work, he said he’ll be able to look up at the beautiful plaque he was given and know he’s appreciated. “They do love me,” he’ll tell himself. Robinson first came to Aldergrove in 1997, immigrating from New Zealand with his wife Suzanne. The Otter couple wanted to find a spot close enough to the city, but still in the country, and they found what he calls the best of everything in the little Langley community of Aldergrove.

After a year of settling in at work, he became involved in Toastmasters. Looking for ways to increase the profile of Toastmasters, he thought he’d see how the group could tie in with the Aldergrove Fair Days. Halfway through the first meeting, he realized how much he could offer the festival society, and he’s been active ever since, including serving three years as president. Both Robinson and McIntosh hailed this year’s summer fair a huge success, excited by the inclusion of several new activities, a larger midway, and especially the addition of a new classic car show on the Friday night that attracted upwards of 500 people.

Maybe in part due to the new admission by reasonable donation, attendance was way up this year, McIntosh said, estimating the crowd on Saturday was potentially record breaking. Robinson was particularly happy to see the sunny, albeit hot weather this year. “This time last year, we got drowned,” he said, noting the attendance overall was at least two times more than last year – likely more. “We’re very happy,” McIntosh said, grabbing a hot dog before running off to operate a new fundraising game called Meal or No Meal – a roulette-style game that cost $10 and ensures every participant wins at least that much or more in gift cards and certificates donated by local eateries.

Butorac faces sentencing A murderer from Aldergrove will be before a judge in December for a sentencing hearing. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

ADVISORS ADVISORS INC. INC.

A sentencing hearing for convicted killer Davey Mato Butorac will be held this December, to determine how long he will spend in jail before he is eligible for parole. Butorac was convicted earlier this month of two second-degree murders, the slayings of Gwendolyn Jo Lawton, 46, and Sheryl Lynn Koroll, 50. Lawton, an Abbotsford woman, was found dead in a ravine on March 13, 2007. She had been badly beaten and strangled. Langley resident Koroll was found in an industrial park off Mufford Crescent three-and-a-half months later. She had died of a skull fracture. Both women were short and slight, weighing just over 100 pounds. It took a jury just five hours to convict Butorac, an Aldergrove man. Police found DNA and blood from the murdered women in various places in his car, including in the trunk. They also found DNA on one of his shoes. A surveillance camera showed Butorac’s

car entering and leaving the lot where Koroll’s body was found. Evidence given by others and statements Butorac himself made to the police indicated that he only owned one pair of shoes at the time, and that he never let anyone else drive his car. Butorac did not testify, and his defence called no witnesses. Because he has been convicted of murder, Butorac will receive an automatic life sentence. His sentencing hearing will determine how long he must wait before being eligible for parole. It could be between 10 and 25 years. Butorac also faces another murder charge, for the slaying of Margaret Redford, who was found by Bertrand Creek on May 20, 2006. Unlike Koroll and Lawton, who were sex trade workers, Redford was an Aldergrove resident who lived not far from Butorac’s longtime home. The 48-year-old woman didn’t have a car, and walked and cycled around town frequently. In the weeks before her murder, Redford told her daughter that she thought she was being followed, but didn’t describe who she thought was watching her. Butorac is scheduled to appear in Surrey Provincial Court on Aug. 11 in relation to the Redford murder. The appearance, scheduled before he was convicted of killing Koroll and Lawton, was originally intended to be a bail hearing.

Brigade Days

Volunteers find timeless connections to Fort Langley

Re-enactors enjoy a hobby that takes them to another place in time. by Ariel Hartman Special to the Advance

verybody has a hobby. For some, it’s golf, others knitting; but for three Fort Langley-enthusiasts, their hobby is historical re-enacting. To those outside the world of historical re-enacting, the activity might seem a bit unorthodox, but to those inside the closeknit culture, it represents a way of life. Historical re-enacting is more of a lifestyle than anything else. Those who call themselves re-enactors get dressed up in the clothes from the era they are re-enacting and live like the people would have years ago. Gord MacIntosh, a registered nurse from Fort Langley National Historic Site Nanaimo, said it was a school trip that Gord MacIntosh (foreground) comes over from Nanaimo to be part of Brigade Days. began his lifelong love of the past. It’s eerie, but you are there,” he said. “I his favourite times of the year. “Brigade “It all started as an elementary school have been here [at Fort Langley] and, for a Days is when I get to see old friends, talk field trip to Fort Langley – I still have the moment, I have been in 1858.” with people who are like-minded and at the assignment I had to do for school,” said While it was a personal visit to Fort same time talk to the public.” MacIntosh.

When Peppan re-enacts, she often plays the character of Mary Houston. “She is not historical,” said Peppan. “She is the fictitious youngest daughter of my own, great-great grandfather, Etienne Pepin. She is also a way of giving the Aboriginal women and their daughters, a voice in the modern day, because she is Métis,” she said. Peppan said that she especially loves coming to Brigade Days to reflect on her strong family connection. “It’s the feel [of Fort Langley]; it’s different than other places. There are the shadows of the past, my past still here,” she said.“During Brigade Days, I often have to get up in the middle of the night, and I just sit on the bench under the flag pole and it’s just me and the night and the Fort, and there is just a feeling [I don’t get elsewhere],” she said. MacIntosh, Goodin and Peppan all said they are looking forward to Brigade Days this year, and are anxious to get out and do what they love and to catch up with old friends. Most of all, the three are looking forward to spreading the word about their passion, and the hobby which has offered them such a strong connection to the Fort. • More online at www.langleyadvance.com, click on “Entertainment”

Be sure and mark Aug. 21 on the calendar for Arts Alive, and those who don’t have calendars can help create one through a new community project. You’ve Gotta Have Friends is asking people to help create art for its display at Arts Alive next month. The contest is called Expressions of Belonging, Connecting the Dots in Community. YGHF is the community group that encourages inclusion of all residents, including the developmentally challenged, and is based out of an office on McBurney Lane. In an effort to raise awareness about the importance of welcoming and inclusive community, YGHF is asking for submissions to express what belonging means to people.

The art could be about friendship, family, a group or organization, or how it feels to be included or excluded. It can be through paintings, drawings, collage, sculpture, photos, fabric art, poetry or short stories (400 words or fewer). “We are looking for expressions of belonging so let your creative juices flow and have some fun with this,” said Pat Weibelzahl, the YGHF coordinator. YGHF is then taking the submitted art and turning a dozen pieces into a calendar. “We will be showing the submissions at Arts Alive in our office and will be producing a 2011 Calendar using 12 winning entries chosen by a panel of judges,” Weibelzahl said. The deadline to create the art and turn it in at the YGHF office is Aug. 16. The chosen pieces will be displayed at Arts Alive Aug. 21. More information is available at 604 533-6546 or yghf@telus.net.

From marinades to sauces

Create flavour when cooking meat

F

or many of us, meat is an important part of our daily diet. Whether beef, lamb, pork or chicken, it is important to know the basics of creating the most flavour possible. Marinades create flavour, but they are also important in making a cut of meat more tender. The best marinades are made from the simplest of ingredients already in your home. Don’t rely on packages of powder from supermarkets. Marinades are made up from a base, an acid, and flavourful ingredients. The base is usually oil, and aids in the cooking process. Acid, such as vinegar, wine, or lemon juice, breaks down meats’ tougher proteins. Red meats and pork, depending on the cuts, are toughest, and are best marinated from one to 24 hours. Chicken is more delicate and is preferably marinated no more than four to six hours. Over-marinated chicken will actually start to become tough. The same applies to seafood, as its proteins are even more fragile. Marinate seafood only 30 minutes to an hour. Flavour combinations that can be added to a marinade are literally endless. Crushed garlic, herbs, spices, and condiments, are just a few. Be creative! Searing meats, marinated or not, also creates flavour. There is virtually no cooking method that exempts searing meat first. It develops a crust that will carry flavour all the way to the finished dish. Stew, for example, has a more developed beef flavour when the meat pieces are browned prior to addition of other ingredients. Many presume searing seals juices inside the meat. This, however, is incorrect as no amount of searing can prevent the loss of moisture. The flavour in crust development can be enhanced even further by the addition of seasoning. If the meat has not been marinating, you may want to add salt and pepper to the meat prior to searing. This simple seasoning will then become part of the meat’s outer shell. Applying dry rubs, consisting of a mixture of many different spices, prior to searing is popular for adding a complexity of flavours. Sear the meat at a high temperature, with an amount of oil that prevents sticking. Do not crowd the pan or surface area, as that will decrease the temperature and cause the meat to simmer in its juices rather than caramelize.

Searing also creates browned bits (called “fond”) on the bottom of a pan. Fond also adds depth in flavour to a sauce. Add a liquid – such as wine

or stock – to the pan, and loosen the brown bits with a wooden spoon. Use the resulting liquid as a part of the sauce, or reduce it further into a sauce of its own. The reduction the liquid will

On Cooking

cause water to evaporate, concentrating the flavours and creating a desired sauce consistency. Taste and adjust the sauce as necessary, prior to serving.

Langley singled out as exemplary host …continued from page A18 “I don’t know what to say,” Paterson said, and continued, with humour: “Thank you. You’re welcome. I’m sorry.” Kelly Mann, the BC Games Society president, said it was fitting that there were contortionists at the opening ceremonies – “It seemed every other volunteer would bend over backwards” to do what needed to be done. As well, heads of provincial sports organizations (PSOs) attended the Games and he said Langley can expect to see these groups returning to use local facilities in the future. “Without exception, they were very effusive in their praise,” he said of the PSOs. Mann noted that Langley raised the bar in various aspects of being a host community. He singled out the Langley Literacy Now initiative linking sports with local libraries and their sports-related materials [Libraries get in on the Games excitement,July 23, Langley Advance]. He said it’s something that had never been done before, but something other host communities should be doing. “We’re going to take that and do that as a best practice,” he said. Another first for the Langley Games was achieved

through Donovan Tildesley, 26, the first Paralympian to emcee closing ceremonies. “That’s a first,” Mann noted. From all accounts, the young people enjoyed their time in Langley. Burnaby wrestling coach Frank Mensah said he wanted to head home after Saturday’s competition wrapped up but his kids pleaded to stay. “They said ‘No, we want to go to some other events. We want to go to the dances and the closing ceremonies,’” the coach told the Advance. At the closing ceremonies Sunday, the BC Games flag was handed to the next community to host provincial Games – Vernon. The president of the Vernon 2010 BC Winter Games Society, Akbal Mund, was here to observe the Langley Games along with about half a dozen others on his board. Mund said Langley should be proud of having such great facilities. “We’d like to pick them up and take them to Vernon,” he joked. He praised the Langley volunteers for being able to adapt to circumstances and make changes on the fly to ensure the Games proceeded as planned. “I probably learned more in the last four days than I did in the past year,” Mund said. “I’ve seen how much work it actually does take. I hope we have the same success that they’ve had here in Langley.”

Deadheading

OPEN

Old flowers continue to play role In the Garden by Anne Marrison

younger florets are still in early bloom. Some, such as Hellebore foetidus and H. orientalis, ripen suddenly and shed seed shockingly quickly. Others, like lilies or Iris sibirica, in which seed-heads open firmly upward, can be left longer before deadheading. By early fall, wildlife-loving gardeners stop deadheading perennials that produce seed which birds like. This includes rudbeckia, echinacea, and some of the verbascums (mulliens). Some seedheads also make a good shelter for beneficial insects over the winter. Deadheading is very important for spring bulbs, because the energy they use to produce seed is stolen from next spring’s flower display. But alliums seem to handle cutting well.

get close to shedding seed. Gardeners who want short-lived perennials to persist in their gardens should always allow a little self-seeding. Columbines and foxgloves fall into this group. But foxgloves need to be cut back before they turn into an ugly long pole crowned by a little tuft of flowers. Cutting almost the whole stalk, but leaving a few inches of seed capsules at the base of the flower spike ensures a manageable amount of seed to scatter where you want more foxgloves. Some rampant self-seeders need finesse and extra time, if seeding is to be stopped while allowing the flower display to continue. For instance, astrantia blooms in clusters of individual florets that open over a very long time. Older florets should be snipped out frequently, because they will drop seed while the

n their early years of gardening many treat deadheading as a casual stroll with hold a cup of coffee (or glass of wine) in one hand and pick off spent flowers with the other. But later, dead-heading can become so much more. For container gardeners in summer, dead-heading is also a chance to check for pests that can quickly become epidemic in hot, dry conditions. Taking a few seconds to check underneath three or four dubiouslooking leaves can reveal spider mites or whitefly before their numbers become overwhelming. All annuals bloom longer if dead-headed regularly, and if annuals grown for foliage happen to flower, it’s usually best to deadhead them early. Many foliage plants (coleus is one) have insignificant flowers, and if they’re allowed to make seed, the foliage often deteriorates. Some perennials will rebloom if cut back immediately after the first flush of bloom. This includes many hardy geraniums, lupins, snapdragons, Verbena bonariensis, yarrow, and alchemilla (Ladies Mantle). Once summer is well underway, gardeners may consider neglecting some of the deadheading, to provide seedheads for dried arrangements in winter. The hardy annual Love-in-a-Mist (Nigella) with its seedheads of red-striped green globes is beautiful in vases. Its seed is easy to save and scatter in fall for next year’s display. But seed-heads that look so good in garden beds or winter arrangements can be a real trap for gardeners who already have quite enough dandelions or buttercups to weed out, and don’t need thousands of volunteer hellebores or teasels or camas or ornamental grasses as well. The key is to watch the seedheads and cut the unwanted ones out before they

Senior A lacrosse

Thunder season ends with close loss to Burrards Langley’s WLA squad finished the 2010 campaign with a 6-12 record. The Langley Thunder were looking to close out a tough Western Lacrosse Association regular season on a high note Wednesday at the Langley Events Centre. Their opponents, the Maple Ridge Burrards, were in a win-itand-you’re-in-it situation – “it” being the WLA playoffs. Mission accomplished for the Burrards. Randy Daly’s powerplay goal 11:09 into the third period snapped a 9-9 tie and lifted the Burrards to a 10-9 win over the host Thunder. The win gave the Burrards a 9-9 record to cap their campaign and most importantly, catapulted Maple Ridge into the WLA playoffs for the first time since 2005.

Both teams heated things up in the first set, as the score was tied at 21.

Fraser Valley made a few skillful plays, gaining the four points needed to take a 25-22 win. In the second set, Vancouver Island-Central Coast appeared to struggle as the Fraser Valley squad was up by 10 points, subbing back in their first line.

The Langley Thunder peewee ‘C’ lacrosse team celebrated its provincial championship victory in South Delta.

Peewee ‘C’ lacrosse

Thunder tops B.C. A Langley Thunder team that included a few lacrosse newbies was the Cinderella story at the provincial lacrosse tournament last weekend. The peewee ‘C’ team was put together with all but a few players who had never played the sport. One of those players was Matthew Lythgoe-Green, who decided to try lacrosse for the first time this year, to help with his hand/eye coordination in hockey. Scrambling for coaches the house ‘C’ division started the season with a few dads at the helm. Over their first 10 games, the team was losing by scores of 14-0 and 10-0. In the first part of our season, the team won two, lost eight, and tied three. In an amazing turnaround, the Thunder started winning, beating some of the top teams while topping tournaments. The team advanced to the provincials, where it went on to win the gold medal in South Delta. The Thunder defeated Delta in the gold medal game. Langley’s James May was named Peewee ‘C’ Warrior MVP. His teammate Keira Arnold earned a fair play award while the Thunder’s Trevor Sever was named as a peewee ‘C’ all-star. The Langley squad started the season with 17 players, including the two goaltenders, and with only four of the players having played before. The Thunder lost players during the year, as well as at the end of the regular season, and won the provincial championship with a measly 12 players including one goalie. The little house league team that initially couldn’t, is now provincial champions.

Michael Macdonald was the Langley Olympians’ golden boy at the 2010 Canadian Age Group Nationals last weekend. Macdonald led a group of nine athletes from the local swim club, which competed against some of the nation’s best in the long course (50-metre) Pan Am Pool in Winnipeg, Man. The Olympians were competing against 1,500 swimmers aged 11-18 from across Canada. Macdonald had a fantastic meet, winning gold in the 14-year-boys 400-metre freestyle in a time of 4:08.64. His time eclipsed the previous club record by 10 seconds. He went on to win silver in the 1,500m freestyle (16:42.16), once again breaking his previous club record and missing out on a senior nationals qualifying time by just four seconds. A bronze in the 800m freestyle was added to his collection of medals, and he grabbed another club record of 8:47.79. Hillary Metcalfe, 12, did her Langley club proud by coming away with two medals and a handful of club records. Metcalfe won silver in the 50m breaststroke in a time of 35 seconds, which was only 0.3 seconds away from a senior national qualifying time. This time gained her a club record. She also came away with a silver in the 11-12 girls 200m breaststroke (2:49.03), breaking the club record once again. Metcalfe’s other club records were set in the 400m IM (5:27.12) where she was sixth overall; 50m freestyle (28.79) placing fifth; 100m breaststroke (1:18.82) placing fourth; and 200m IM (2:32.80), again placing fourth overall. Other swimmers making finals were: • Morgan Mark, 16 – fourth in the 100m fly which gained her a club record in a time of 1:02.87 and seventh in the 50m fly with another club record, 28.45; • Rachelle Kichton, 18 – fourth in 16-18 girls 200m fly and fourth in 200m IM, and; • Brennen Taylor – seventh in the 14-year-boys 400m freestyle. The 400m IM is one of the toughest events in swimming and LOSC ended up with four swimmers in the finals. They included: • Hillary Metcalfe – sixth among 12-year-old girls; • Martha Metcalfe – fifth in the 14-year-girls division; • Kate Thomson – eighth among 15-year-old girls, and; • Rachelle Kichton – fourth in the 18-year-old girls division. Romina Worthington, 14, set a new club record in 1314 girls 1,500m freestyle, with a time of 18:54.69. Olympians coach Brian Metcalfe said of his team, “LOSC swimmers swam great races and continue to show that they are a force to be reckoned with. They prepared well for this meet and the results speak for themselves.”

Funeral Services

PRE-HST SAVINGS

EXTENDED

The Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) came into effect on July 1st, increasing the cost of funerals by 7%. In many cases, this amounts to an increase of $500 or more. While we assisted hundreds of families with their pre-arrangements prior to the July 1st deadline, many others were unable to complete their plans before the HST became effective. By planning ahead you will: • Relieve your family of the emotional and financial burden an unplanned funeral can cause • Prevent emotional overspending • Lock in prices at today’s rates

We’re happy to announce we are extending the pre-HST savings – but only for a limited time.

Obituaries

ANGRIGNON, Gladys Emeline

Kent Zarrelli Zarrelli Kent

(nee Rennie)

Gladys, our dear Mom, born February 19, 1923 in New Westminster, BC passed away July 19, 2010 in Tsawwassen, BC. She was predeceased by her husband Albert Angrignon (2004), mother Grace, father William and siblings Gordon, Evangeline, Fred, and Seldon. Gladys is survived by her children Edmond (Barb), Eugene (Gail), Randolph (Jen), John Scott, Joan and Gordon; and many grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and extended family. She is also missed by her sister Mildred Walker and twin sister Irene Armstrong. Gladys attended Normal school in Vancouver and started teaching in Surrey in 1942. After her adventurous travels in the US and Bermuda with Irene and friends, Gladys married her first husband, John Bradshaw and lived in the US. Upon her return to BC, Gladys started teaching school at Aldergrove Elementary. There she met her second husband, Al Angrignon. The two teachers blended their families in 1955 and lived in Aldergrove for many years before moving to Langley in 1968. They had wonderful friends in both communities that they enjoyed sharing their lives with. Mom was actively involved in community activities including the Langley Lady Lions; Aldergrove and Sharon United Churches and school activities. She loved to travel, golf, play cards, garden, bake - the family has been missing her pies the last few years. The family would like to thank Mom’s many loyal friends, and the staff at both Langley Gardens and The Waterford in Tsawwassen, for their support and kindness over the last few years. A Celebration of Life service will be held at Sharon United Church, 48th Ave & 216th Street in Langley - on Friday, August 13th at 2:00 pm with a tea to follow. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart & Stroke Foundation www.heartandstroke.bc.ca or a charity of your choice would be appreciated.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Aries March 21 - April 19: A major struggle might occur. Your humour is at a low level. If you’re challenged, calm down, study events, stride ahead slowly and steadily. Study the conditions around events – this setting is your answer: gaze on it, then plan your ensuing moves. Your career/life status is undergoing major change: a) accept this, but better yet, b) use it as an opportunity to charge forth in a way that conforms to the “new setting” around you. Though you feel expansive and impulsive, others hold your on-off button – co-operate! Saturday onward, sweet affection returns to relationships!

Cancer June 21-July 22: This could be crunch time, Cancer, especially early week. Your relationship(s) is/ are under pressure from both business/career and family/domestic/security arenas. Consider: a major link is undergoing deep, irrevocable changes, and you’ll be better off accepting this, adjusting to it. In some cases, a break-off is overdue. But if you have a good, long-term bond, don’t throw it away due to a temporary conflict. A mood of happy expectation surrounds all this!(?) Your energy and charisma surge upward Friday/Saturday – use these to handle the problems or sudden events that crop up.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The years ahead accent deep changes in, and a cautious, sober, serious, slowgrowth approach toward, all security, real estate, and domestic spheres. Flow with this; embrace it. Oddly, now to 2019, your relationships will be anything but sober, predictable and cautious! Sudden hypnotic attractions, overnight decisions to marry (or split) or sparkling new oddball friends might be the norm (hints late week). Early week accents that first sober trend: be willing to fight, but make sure you’re not over-reacting. Legal, love, travel, intellectual matters shine mid-week. You’re happy!

Taurus April 20-May 20: Avoid arguments. Attend to security, property, domestic, family and supply issues for the next three weeks. Your energy might ebb – you’re in a natural “hibernation” phase until late month. Paradoxically, work demands much effort all August – but you’ll almost enjoy it by next week, as co-workers grow affectionate. (This message applies to some degree into late 2012.) Carefully regulate your energy, alternate work and rest, especially outdoors. Employment changes might emerge from legal, government, management or international quarters. Money looks good Wednesday/Thursday.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your energy, charisma and clout shine! But don’t make big new starts that could soon hit the eddies of indecision, delays and back-tracking (due by Aug. 20, or sooner). Focus on wrapping up what’s already in the works. This week will be momentous, tumultuous for some of the people around you – be a friend, an aid. Your own work, health, communications, legal, intellectual, travel, publishing, educational, cultural and love spheres face deep changes/challenges, highlighted Tuesday and late week, but lasting for several years ahead. Happiness mid-week – a flirty Gemini or a deep Aries?

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: You might receive some dire messages this week – but they are not as dire as they seem. Your spheres of work, health, duties, charities, spirituality, management, dealing with head office and government – all are under pressure, the status quo must change. Realize this and proceed with a willing, helpful attitude. Don’t get riled up Monday/Tuesday when you might sense a “challenge” – be quiet, diplomatic, study the flow of (and origin of) events. Same thing Friday/Saturday, but your mood is more mellow, understanding. Midweek, you can delve deep, learn some real secrets!

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Lie low, conserve energy, avoid fights – plan, manage, act behind the scenes. Be charitable, spiritual, moral, honest with yourself. You “skate by” many of the powerful stresses and challenges that occur now; they affect associates more than you. Still, these major forces do affect your financial, sexual, research, intimate and health spheres, so take events, trends seriously, especially around Tuesday and late week. Your own deep sense of speculation, of taking a risk, might struggle with economic “realities” – yet you might be right! Be ambitious mid-week, diplomatic Friday.

Gemini May 21-June 20: DON’T invest. The accent lies on communications, paperwork, details, emails, calls, office chores, errands – dive in! Be curious, ask questions, explore, travel, talk to people, connect with siblings. This week contains barriers or problems in “big money,” investments, debts, mutually owned reserves, especially around Tuesday. An Aries or Libra, a “hothead” might be involved. Maintain composure; your position is pretty rock solid, as long as you don’t abandon it. Smile, be diplomatic Friday, despite provocation – sudden love could appear – careful! Complete projects, delay big starts.

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: You’re in a wise, mellow, compassionate, loving phase. Look around you and see the major trends occurring in the world. What you understand now can boost you immeasurably in the future. Early week features dead-ends (which are really changes in direction) in money, romantic, child-oriented, creative and social spheres. Your social and love needs might directly counter your money wishes. So you can adapt, change, resign yourself, or charge ahead with a new plan. Wednesday/Thursday show you the possibilities – and the opposition. New love’s possible, but dicey! Careful, Friday.

August 1 - 7 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The main accent lies on depths, research, secrets, investments, debt, intimacy, sexual desire, health and lifestyle choices/ commitments. Here, all is well – or at least, “normal.” But another long-term drama, a subtle but important one, is slowly transforming you and your life – your personality. Here, you face great challenges, pressures – mostly on career fronts, a little in domestic areas. Definite choices are necessary. Bosses and power people are no-nonsense, skeptical, even angry: careful Tuesday. They grow more amenable Friday through August – wait to approach! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Big romantic, social, marital and partnership choices this week! Travel, publishing, advertising, education, import-export, sibling interactions and communications might be under pressure. It’s a good pressure, for it forces overdue change. (Legal and litigation questions might arise. My advice: avoid lawsuits to Sept. 15. They can prove burdensome right into October 2012, with little “win” quotient – talk it out!) Others hold the aces; be diplomatic, flexible. Something ends early week. Romance mid-week! Careful Friday: accidents and “wrong love” possible. Be an angel all week! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Lots of work to do, Pisces – dig in! For three weeks, concentrate on finishing or giving a big forward heave to ongoing projects rather than starting any new ones. This week, especially around Tuesday and Friday, brings a climax in certain difficult situations. The main problem is that your money (and sexual) interests are “fighting” your cherished wishes. For example, you want a future wedding (the wish) but you’re not sexually attracted to “Mr./Ms. Right.” Or you can’t afford the life you want (what else is new?). Careful with finances, investments. Avoid money, possession “show downs.” timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014

Speedway memories kept alive by society A local non-profit society works to honour the racetrack in South Langley. The Langley Speedway Historical Society hasn’t hosted a race for many years but the group is still active, preserving local racing history and playing host to car buffs. Langley Speedway was once the most famous oval track in the region. The society is pushing to preserve the race track, gathering up momentos and artifacts on the track’s history. While most records list 1965 as the year of official opening, officiated by Noel Booth, it is generally agreed that 1963 is the year that racing began on the track. Construction began in 1962. Langley Speedway was a hub of activity and a weekend staple for Langley families through the ’60s, ’70s, and early ’80s. Langley Speedway hosted NASCAR Winston West races in 1971, 1972 and 1978, making it one of only three sites in B.C. that has hosted NASCAR races – the others being Western Speedway in Victoria and Westwood in Coquitlam. The track was closed to racing at the end of the 1984 season. The society uses various means to spread the word about the track and its work at preserving it. The society has partnered with Langley Township for the Adopt-A-Street program. Once a month, members can be seen along 208th Street from 16th Avenue to the track gates in Campbell Valley Regional Park and along 200th Stret between 16th Avenue and 8th Avenue. The society has had positive feedback from area residents on the cleanliness project. Because the speedway is located within the park, two members of the speedway society sit on the Campbell Valley Park Association board to be

part of the decision-making process. Another way the society promotes its work on the speedway is through community involvement. The society has floats in various community parades and hosts a September get together that’s becoming increasingly popular. For many in the community, the second weekend of September just wouldn’t seem right without seeing vintage vehicles. The fourth annual Langley Speedway Reunion will be on Sept. 11 and 12. Since the Langley Good Times Cruise-In isn’t taking place in 2010, the Langley Speedway

Historical Society has amended its annual event. The reunion runs Saturday and Sunday with the main show moved to the Saturday instead of the Sunday. The organizers say when the Cruise-In returns, the society will revert back to its old schedule. For more information on the non-profit society, go to www. www.langleyspeedway.ca

Absences stung Thunder …continued from page A25 The Thunder missed key players at times during the season. Among them: 2009 WLA second-team all-star Rob Van Beek – who anchors the team’s defence – and last year’s top WLA rookie and first team all-star Garrett Billings, who despite missing five games, led the team in scoring with 63 points in 13 games. Van Beek missed most of the season because of work. “I would contribute a lot of it [the team’s struggles] to the lack of everyone being

lacrosse aside for a second.” Billings missed time at the start of the year while he went for a National Lacrosse League playoff title as a member of the Toronto Rock. He also missed games late in the season. Billings returned to the Thunder lineup versus Maple Ridge after returning from Manchester, England with a world silver medal. He played for Canada’s national field lacrosse team, which lost 12-0 to the United States in the world championship game Saturday. In his final WLA game of ’10, Billings scored a hat trick and chipped in an assist.

together, myself included,” Van Beek said. “I was going to fire academy, and we were missing three guys out of our starting ‘D’ [who] weren’t there this year. With all those things combined, it was hard to get the engine going at full revs. It was kind of like we were on the half pedal this year.” Van Beek is already looking ahead to 2011. “I’m Thunder for life,” he said. “I’m not going anywhere. It’s just that this year, I had to get the career started. At some point of your life you have to put

League

Tennis leagues begin in September Tennis will be served this September on courts scattered throughout the community. Players are invited to participate in both singles and doubles tennis leagues scheduled to start Sept. 4. The only criteria for skill placement is the ability to
