BMW/Mini moves into Langley next summer. OpenRoad Auto Group just broke ground on a $15.5-million home for the luxury auto brands on the Langley Bypass at Glover Road. Construction will begin promptly and the dealerships will open July 2011. BMW/Mini will be the first tenants of the auto complex being built on the 15.5-acre site. “This is going to be a mecca,” Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender said at the groundbreaking ceremony. “We’re going to draw people from all over the region.” The project sees luxury dealers being pushed farther out into the Fraser Valley, a market that is expected to expand in the future. Currently luxury dealers are clustered in Vancouver, Richmond and North Vancouver. Fassbender noted that this project, on the gateway to Langley City, will be a catalyst for other initiatives. He noted that the Best Western hotel across the road was undergoing a major revitalization. “We’ve got lots of other exciting things going to happen on this site,” the mayor said. OpenRoad president Christian Chia said it’s the right time to move ahead, despite the difficult economy. “We’re seeing, certainly, the Metro Vancouver market recovering,” he told the Langley Advance. He noted that Canada never saw the economic troubles that were experienced in the U.S.

And the Richmond-based OpenRoad, which has 10 retail locations in the province, is positioning itself for the B.C. marketplace. Chia noted that the average age of the vehicles on B.C. roads is 10 years old, meaning a significant number of motorists will have to replace their vehicles within the next few years. “There’s a natural replacement demand,” he explained. The plan for the Bypass/ Glover site is to have a mixed auto dealership and retail/office development. Conceptual plans call for a 10-acre auto mall, and Chia said that work is continuing to find other dealerships for the complex but nothing can be announced yet. The BMW/Mini dealership will take up about 4.15 acres.

OpenRoad has opted to construct a dealership that meets LEEDs environmental standards, but Chia said it will be up to the other dealerships that come into the project to decide if they will follow suit when they build. The company is citing several advantages to the site, including the population of the South of the Fraser region, the lack of luxury auto dealers in the area, the projected growth rates (expected to be double that of Vancouver and the rest of B.C.), and higher average household incomes. It also helps to be at the junction of two key roadways that see 52,000 vehicles each day. OpenRoad has partnered with Anthem Properties, which will oversee the non-auto tenants. “We have secured a high-end liquor store,” Chia said.

As well, tenants are expected to include coffee shops, a bank, a restaurant in a 5,000-square-foot site, and several tenants for the office space. But no names can be released at this point. Chia explained that the goal is to have about 75 per cent of the space committed before there are any announcements about who is setting up shop there. One factor in OpenRoad and Anthem choosing the Langley City site was the local government’s comprehensive plans for the downtown. Chia said the Downtown Master Plan played a role in the project coming to Langley and made the process more efficient. “We knew exactly where we stood,” he explained. “It makes planning easy. There’s very little left to interpretation.”

A grenade with a live fuse was found sitting on a grandmother’s bookshelf in a seniors home in North Langley recently.

The RCMP and bomb squad were called out when family members found the hand grenade while helping the relative move. The grenade was apparently being used, along with a couple of bullets, as a paperweight, said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks. Mounties called in the Navy Bomb Disposal team to check out the suspicious grenade. They found that it did have a live fuse and detonator, and could pot-

entially explode. The grenade was taped up to make sure it couldn’t go off, and it was hauled away for safe disposal. The family wasn’t able to say exactly where the grenade and ammunition came from. Marks reminds people to always treat ammunition or explosives as if they are live and possibly dangerous. With explosives, don’t attempt to move them, but simply call local police.

No fuss, no muss, and less garbage What’s online Seatbelts not on

Police are blaming alcohol, speed, and a lack of seatbelts for a single-vehicle collision that killed three men on the TransCanada in Surrey last Friday. A car slammed into a parked trailer in a construction area as the men headed east towards Langley. The only survivor of the four occupants was also the only person in the car wearing a seatbelt. • More online

Nancy and Roger Laviolette pack up their food waste into the garbage and set it out every week, letting them recycle most of their household garbage without having a compost pile.

by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Nancy and Roger Laviolette have a compact but immaculate back yard. From the koi pond and small artificial stream to the flower beds, everything is lovingly maintained by the Walnut Grove couple. One thing they haven’t managed to fit in is a compost bin. Due to the small size of the yard, fears about rats, and regular incursions by racoons – which have been trying to get past the mesh over the koi pond for some time – a compost bin would simply be too big a problem, the Laviolettes explained. That’s why the couple was quite happy when they got a knock on their door last year. The couple lives inside an area selected in 2009 as one of four pilot project areas around Metro Vancouver for weekly food scrap pickup. (See story below.) From municipal staff, they got a small indoor bucket, and a sticker for their larger garbage cans. From then on, food scraps,

Matthew Claxton Langley Advance

whether bones or eggshells, potato peels, teabags, or coffee grounds, all went into the bucket. When it was full, it went into the outdoor can, the same one used for yard waste. There was a brief adjustment period to the new recycling regime. “It took Nancy at least two weeks to get me on board,” joked Norm. Now he’s an enthusiastic convert. “It’s just become a habit,” said

Nancy. Since then, the couple has stopped putting kitchen waste down their sink disposal unit, and they’ve slashed the amount of stuff leaving their house in plastic garbage bags. Roger said he’s amazed at how little garbage the couple now has at the end of the week. “It’s perfect,” said Nancy. “Before, it was like, ‘What do we do with this stuff?’” “We understand the importance of it all,” Roger said.

The family instilled the idea into their children that people should always pick up after themselves, even picking up other people’s garbage when at public parks or on camping trips. The Laviolettes would like to see the program continue, but they don’t want to see a big increase on their utility bills. Nancy said she hopes the money generated by selling the compost could pay for most of the program.

Metro Vancouver

Food recycling could expand across region More Langley residents may be able to join a composting program. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A pilot project to compost food scraps from suburban homes could be expanded or tossed onto the scrap heap depending on an upcoming Metro Vancouver report. Langley Township, along with several other communities, has been running a small pilot project for the past 10 months. Originally intended to run for six months, it was extended and will run at least until the final report is released. The pilot project area in Walnut Grove is not large. “It’s a little over 800 households,” said Harb Chohan of the Township’s engineering department. Residents of the area, roughly from 208th

to 222nd Streets and from the Trans-Canada Highway to 88th Avenue, have had the option of putting all their food waste – from banana peels to bones to eggshells – into garbage bins marked with a special decal. The waste is collected, along with yard trimmings, and taken to be recycled into compost. Originally, all the waste was being taken to Fraser Richmond Soil & Fibre, where it was broken down into soil and resold. The waste was piled up at their east Richmond facility, with constant airflow through the piles. “That introduces oxygen to the microbes,” said manager Steve Aujla, which helps avoid producing the greenhouse gas methane. The problems with composting are what gets mixed in along with organic products, Aujla said. “The things that we don’t want of course are non-organics,” he said. Glass, metal, and especially plastic are a problem for commerical composting oper-

ations. “You name it,” Aujla said, “in the last 20 years, we’ve seen it.” That includes rakes, garden hoses, and the engine block from a car that someone dropped off in front of their recycling depot at night. Since the official six-month pilot project ended, Langley has stopped sending its waste to Fraser Richmond, Chohan said. Instead, it has switched to The Answer Garden Products, an Abbotsford operation much closer to the waste transfer station in Aldergrove. Whether the project goes forward will depend on the costs, and on problems and issues residents have had with the program, Chohan said. If expanded, the program will work alongside the normal garbage, recycling, and yard trimmings programs operated by contractors. The Metro Vancouver report is expected within four to six weeks. A decision may be farther in the future.

Animal welfare

Once recovered, rescued animals were turned over to a shelter. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Langley Mounties called in the help of a tow truck company to rescue a trio of tabbies that were trapped in a Port Kells donation bin. The incident took place on July 25, near 96th Avenue and Yeoman’s Crescent, said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks. The kittens were trapped in the bottom of the sizeable donation bin, and proved difficult to reach, Marks said.

The Mounties on the scene called in Clover Towing, which brought a truck and tipped the bin on one side to allow rescuers to get the cats. The kittens were given water at the scene, then were taken to an emergency animal hospital where they were fed and put in incubators. When the kittens recovered, they were turned over to the SPCA. It is unknown how the kittens got into the bin.

Murder case

Second trial in the works by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Davey Mato Butorac was scheduled to make a brief court appearance Wednesday, but the event was delayed. Butorac is charged with killing Aldergrove’s Margaret Redford. The hearing was originally to have considered bail for Butorac, an Aldergrove resident. But Butorac’s lawyer Richard Fowler noted that would not happen. His client was convicted last month of two other counts of second degree murder. Fowler said in court he was waiting to hear what the Crown intends to do regarding the last charge. According to the provincial Crown spokesperson, a trial will likely be held. “At this point Crown is not giving any consideration to a stay of proceedings,” said Neil MacKenzie. Butorac’s sentencing hearing for his two convictions will be in December.

FINISHING PRESSURE TREATED DECKING

You must always finish all four sides and ends. The wood must be no more than 10 per cent moisture content. You will not be able to purchase pressuretreated wood with 10 per cent or less moisture content because of the treating process. Therefore, the deck will be put down and finished afterwards. The sun will beat down on the surface, drawing out the moisture, and there goes your finish. Treated decks should be left to dry for one season before

considering any type of finish. Note: When you finish a pressure-treated deck, be sure to apply a product that is formulated to be compatible with pressure treated wood products. A pressure-treated wood surface will deteriorate if left unfinished for any long period of time. Visit your local store and the good folks at Windsor Plywood will be happy to assist you.

Artful Dodger Pub

Fundraiser aims to pay MS patient’s trip to Poland An event Saturday is designed to raise $15,000 for Kathy Hutchinson. by Roxanne Hooper

rhooper@langleyadvance.com

Rebecca Oram longs for the day when her 55-year-old Langley mother can walk again, eat without choking, go to the bathroom without assistance, and frolic with her three grandchildren. Kathy Hutchinson was struck with multiple sclerosis when she was 28, been confined to a wheelchair for the past seven years, denied treatments because her disease is too far along, and told by local doctors that she must face the reality of “unavoidable death.” Never one to give up, Hutchinson has continued searching for alternate answers, and the former real estate agent believes

a new experimental “liberation” treatment offered in places such as Poland and Bulgaria offer hope of a pain-free life. That’s why Oram is holding a fundraising event this Saturday, Aug. 14 at the Artful Dodger Pub on 24th Avenue in Fernridge. The event, which includes a show ’n’ shine with the Langley Loafers and Bad Example car clubs, as well as a silent auction, is intended to raise enough money to send Hutchinson to Poland for surgery in September. “We are trying to raise the $15,000 that it costs to get the procedure done in Poland,” Oram told the Langley Advance. “My hope is that my mom will be able to live the rest of her life, at the least, without pain.” Oram is convinced this weekend’s event is the right thing to do, helping to raise money for her mother while also increasing awareness for what she calls an injustice in the Canadian, and specifically the B.C., health care system that denies people such as her

mother to sign a waiver and participate in this experimental treatment. “What I can’t understand is, why they would deny this treatment to someone like my mom. What are they afraid of, that she may die? They have already, cold heartedly, told us that she is going to die. So, what do we do now?” Oram said. “Well, what I am doing is a fundraiser, to raise enough money to take my mom out of this hypocritical country and to Poland.” A few tickets for the 6 p.m. event are still available at the pub – Oram’s place of employment – or through Rebecca at 778888-2081. Tickets are $40. Even after this weekend’s fundraiser, the family will still be collecting donations to send Hutchinson to Poland for treatment. Donations are being accepted online at: http://ccsvitreatmentforkatie.chipin.com/ ccsvi-treatment-forkathrynhutchinson.

Staying in fire’s path not bright How could more than 50 people come to the same conclusion: that staying in the path of a wildfire is the way to go, as opposed to heeding an evacuation order and getting out ASAP? That’s the question a lot of people have been asking, following reports last week that at least 53 people in B.C.’s Cariboo region refused to get out of the way of fires burning in the area. We can’t figure out why they decided to stay. It’s possible a few of them are of the same mindset as Harry Truman, who was never seen again after refusing to leave his home on Mount St. Helens. Nobody takes on a volcano and wins. Maybe a wildfire seems less threatening, but anyone who remembers the devastation Kelowna suffered in 2003 should realize it’s not. For more recent examples, there’s always California and Australia. So what is it that compels people to ignore the pleas of police and other officials, and possibly, their own friends and family? Maybe it’s fear of looting, or simply fear of leaving all of their “stuff” behind. Maybe it’s a problem with authority, or with being told what to do. Or maybe people who stay behind simply think they’re invincible, that it won’t happen to them. Of course, when they’re wrong, they have to depend on emergency workers willing to risk their own lives to get fools like that to safety. Such behaviour is selfish in the extreme. It makes the work of emergency personnel more difficult, and it leaves friends and family sick with worry. So how could more than 50 people have decided to stay? Maybe, since the fire doesn’t get them this time, they can answer that question. Because we’d like to know what will motivate the next set of fools whose stupidity will be emboldened by this bunch’s dumb luck.

Education

‘Whitewash’ job failed FREE

Dear Editor, I have watched with interest over the last year as the Langley Board of Education and senior administration have attempted to portray the current financial woes as the result of “clerical errors.” Whilst this whitewash job may suffice for those who believe every word coming from the board office a significant number of people, myself included, are left to ponder the following: Why were several years of publicly audited financial statements which clearly showed that this district was spending more that it was receiving in revenues since the summer of 2006 ignored by the board and senior administration? Why were the anticipated savings from the closure of many elementary schools never confirmed and documented? Why were students from the Fort Langley Elementary reassigned to D.W. Poppy without there being a costing out of this plan? The same costs continue to this day with a significant amount of busing. Why was the reconfiguration of the

South-Central Langley schools and the Aldergrove schools done without any form of cost estimates being done? Why was the board of education not receiving quarterly or even monthly financial updates on the school districts’ actual financial position until this year? Why in this time of financial difficulty would senior administration and the board be requesting new schools be built without first having an estimation of the additional cost of running these schools or where the additional operating costs would come from? Where is the long term educational, facilities, and financial plan? This should be one comprehensive document which encompasses all of the above. Finally why did this board not have until this year an audit committee? Until these and I am sure many other questions are answered, we will not be able to move this district forward and live up to the mission statement of “Working together for student success.” Graeme Shepherd, Langley

Aldergrove

Fast draw folks fantastic

Dear Editor, First and foremost I would like to say that the communities of Langley and Aldergrove were absolute wonderful places to visit. The people are truly B.C. treasures and the warmth I was shown will always stay with me. I attended the Canadian Fast Draw Championship in Aldergrove, and I was thoroughly pleased with the structure of the events and the people who co-ordinated the contest. Den and Karen Robinson clearly managed safety for participants and spectators as top priority through the whole event. They truly made a guy from Saskatoon feel like part of the family while there. I definitely will do everything to get back in 2011 to compete in the Canadian Fast Draw Championship in Aldergrove. Brian A. Shukin (a.k.a. Krossmankid) WFDA member Saskatoon, Sask.

Transportation

Put rail overpass on bypass Dear Editor, Some time ago I asked Township Councillor Mel Kositsky why they were not exploring the logical option of putting the railway overpass on the Langley Bypass, where it is needed, rather than at 64th where it leads nowhere. His reply was quite simple “The railway crosses the bypass in the City of Langley”. Is it not long overdue that the Township of Langley, City of Langley, Trans-Link, Metro Vancouver, and the appropriate provincial and federal authorities got together to solve this problem that affects not just the Township, but the City as well. An overpass could be designed for the bypass that does not impact agricultural land or involve the ALR. Bob Puls, Aldergrove

120 days in arrears for eight cents, which I did not know I was in arrears (as I’ve never received notice that this was outstanding). Now the interesting thing about this is that on July 17, a letter was processed and sent to me advising (rather threatening me) that if I did not make this payment, “Quickpass will request that ICBC exercise rights and remedies available under section 26(1)(f) and section 25(2)(d) of the Motor Vehicle Act (British Columbia). “This will result in ICBC refusing to issue or renew your driver’s licence or the licence of your vehicle(s) until your Quickpass account is paid in full. This process is referred to as ‘Refusal to Issue’ or ‘RTI’.” All this for eight cents? My new invoice indicates that I have until Aug. 15, to make this payment, so why is it that I am receiving this document (printed out the day after the invoice) threatening me to make immediate payment. Are these people so desperate to receive payment that they feel they have to “threaten” us into making payment. This is right up there with the proposed Port Mann Bridge toll of making you pay within 48 hrs or... or... or... what? Jail time? How Draconian can these people be?

Asian investors tour Langley In the past several months, Langley Township has hosted some special visitors. CEOs of multi-million dollar corporations, architects, journalists, engineers, TV reporters, tradespeople, and government officials from China, Japan, Korea, and other parts of Asia have been coming to the Township by the busload. Here, they are learning firsthand about the community’s investment opportunities, its abundant land, and the unique way wood is used to build homes and facilities. And they are going back home to spread the word. “We are getting exceptional exposure throughout these countries,” said John Szarapka of Langley Township’s Permits Department, who has been organizing tours of the Township since 2005. Originally, the tours – conducted in partnership with the Council of Forest Industries (COFI) – were designed to promote wood exporting opportunities and showcase how local wood products are used to create housing and facilities for the elderly.

Details about wood construction were pointed out to a delegation of Korean visitors at Vesta’s Milner Heights development on July 6 by John Szarapka of Langley Township’s Permits, Licence, and Inspection Services Department. In past months, the number of Asian delegations has increased as more and more people are learning not just about wood product opportunities, but about Langley’s potential overall. The

Township’s Economic Development Department came on board to give the visitors an overview of the unique aspects of the municipality and the benefits it offers those looking to locate a business.

“So far in 2010, we have managed to put the Township’s promotional materials into the hands of almost 100 business executives from Asia as a result of these tours,” said economic development manager Gary MacKinnon. “If just one of these seeds takes root, it is well worth the effort to meet with and present to these possible future investors.” Between October 2009 and July 2010 alone, four Asian tours were held in the Township. On the last trip, among the delegates were journalists and photographers who arrived with interesting items from their homeland: trade journals and magazines which profiled Langley Township and featured information and pictures gathered during previous visits. “It is very encouraging that what we have shown them in the past is making it into their publications,” said Bob Andrews of the Township’s Economic Development Department. The tours have grown to encompass the bigger economic picture, Szarapka said, and the entire community will benefit. “Langley needs this exposure to create trade and opportunities for investment, to provide more jobs, more buildings, and a larger tax base,” said Szarapka.

Cold warehouse jobs relocating here Bad news for Burnaby may be good for Langley workers. Summit Logistics is losing 391 employees, after Safeway announced it was switching its warehouse operations to Langley. Cold Logic, a division of VersaCold, will take over in February of next year.

It wasn’t the summer surprise that 391 Summit Logistics employees were expecting. The layoffs in Burnaby will affect 31 managers and 360 union members. Cold Logic has facilities on the Langley-Surrey border, in Langley itself, and in Abbotsford.

It isn’t known exactly how many jobs will be created in Langley by the Safeway contract, or exactly which facility will host the storage service. Calls from the Langley Advance to VersaCold were not returned by press time.

Abbotsford Mayor George Peary is all excited about last week’s ground breaking of a 20-acre, 670,000 square-foot shopping centre at Mount Lehman Road and the TransCanada Highway. But this news might not be as well received by businesses in Langley – you know, that community further west of Abbotsford that has enjoyed the distinction of being the regional shopping mecca for several decades. The close proximity to Langley could actually be detrimental to the local economy, but none of that was mentioned of course when Shape Properties president John Horton and Peary broke ground on

Wynne Gorman, who is the CEO of a Vancouver-based novelty company called The Party Bazaar. Wynne and her Flying Witch will be flying in to Langley to open up a temporary Halloween store in the Langley Bypass location in late September, and close in early November. But, apparently Wynne and her ghouls are already hard at work preparing the witch’s lair. Thanks to Carey for the heads up. He let me know this is the third Party Bazaar location, noting the one on 2nd Avenue in Vancouver and another in North Vancouver. And thanks to Michael, the company’s new marketing manager, who gave me a heads up that these stores focus not only on Halloween, but Christmas, Easter, and other special occasions. Stay tuned. I’ll bring you more on this haunting little undertaking. In the meantime, check out their website – if you dare – www.thepartybazaar.com.

What’s in

the new High Street retail project. This development, on the northeast corner of the interchange, is said to be the largest in B.C. in the past 30 years, with a Wal-Mart Super Centre and London Drugs as the anchor tenants. Indications are that the first tenants will move in next fall. I guess only time will tell what this project will mean to the local economy.

angley’s Amber Locker was almost levitating this week, in anticipation of Friday’s chance to perform alongside Canadian country music greats like Johnny Reid, Crystal Shawanda, Aaron Pritchett, The Higgins, and Ridley Bent. “Some of the biggest names of the country circuit will be performing, and, as a band, we are honoured to share the stage with them,” said Locker, a member of the Whiskey Jane band. “It is exciting to bring the very best in country along with all other genres of music to Mission for this event,” she added. “Our band is looking forward to being part of it.” Whiskey Jane takes to the outdoor stage tonight at about 5:15 p.m., and will be followed a short Whiskey Jane time later by fellow Langleyite, Aaron Pritchett. “We’re looking forward to sharing the stage with all of the amazing artists in the lineup,” Locker said, noting their intentions to stick around Aaron Pritchett after the set to catch the rest of the event. Locker said she’s been floating on Cloud 9 since Whiskey Jane played Canada Place on July 1, followed quickly by the Calgary Stampede. Even though the local band is still working the Lower Mainland bar circuit (they’re playing Halloween weekend at Langley’s own Gabby’s Cabaret), the group has made some big inroads in the industry of late, Locker siad. In addition to being invited to Rockin’ River Music Festival, they’re preparing to release the first single from their new album soon, and they’ve been picked to open for Travis Tritt when he performs on Vancouver Island on Sept. 25. They also received word this week that they’re up for a country recording artist of the year at the BreakOut West 2010 awards in Kelowna this fall. • Hear them perform at Rockin’ River, a twoday event (Friday and Saturday) at the Mission raceway. Many organizers from the defunct Merritt Music Festival ar rallying behind this project, hoping it will be the first annual. Info online: www.rockinriver.com.

As well, this Saturday, he’s heading south into the U.S. He’s been asked to perform the Canadian and American anthems, as well as a 20-minute show, for thousands at the Evergreen horse show in Carnation, Wash. Cole hasn’t had what you’d call a typical summer for a kid, but he’s having a blast, he told the Langley Advance. He had some time to sneak away for some tubing and boating on Shuswap Lake. And still on the books this summer, he’s escaping to Vancouver Island for a family vacation. And at least during one of his visits to the PNE later this month, he hopes to catch one of the big name performers. Plus the midway fanatic plans to haul along a friend and complete the full circuit of rides – at least once. “I just love carnival rides. I can’t wait,” Cole said. Without tipping his hand, Armour senior – also a life-long entertainer – said Cole has a few other exciting offers on the table for shows this fall that will rock everyone’s socks and skyrocket this youngster’s career to a whole new level. • Stay tuned to the Langley Advance for ongoing updates about this young singer’s progress.

ith a career spanning 50 years – the rockabilly pioneer, country legend and American poet Johnny Cash left his mark upon many millions of fans. Among them are four western Canadian musicians who are driven to replicate his sounds, songs and recordings in a magnificent tribute entitled Big River – A tribute to the Man in Black. And this Nanaimo quartet will be town next weekend sharing their passion – some might say near obsession – with Cash and his music – with like-minded Langleyites. Fronted by Dave Pittet, Big River goes all the way in their shows, not content to just imitate, but rather bring the audience past the cover songs and into the world of the Man in Black, Pittet explained. “It’s not only about the voice” said 43-year-old Pittet. “It’s about living and breathing the man. His posture, his mannerisms, his moves, and his quirks. I want our audiences to go home feeling like they just observed the man himself. “When our audiences come out to hear us perform, we want them to have the thrill of an authentic Man in Black show,” Pittet said. “Not just the words, but the full experience.” Pittet and the band are doggedly dedicated to replicating the most authentic Johnny Cash tribute the world has ever seen. But how did it all begin? “I am confident in saying I am the closest sounding Johnny Cash tribute out there, and my band is the best I’ve heard at recreating that train-beat sound Cash and company made famous,” Pittet told the Langley Advance. “I discovered Cash at age 40, a bad time in my life as I left my wife and kids and was quitting my bad lifestyle, drugs, etc. J. Cash quit at the same age by the way and left his

Langley business owner was tapped to be part of a cooking team for the Discovery Channel show BBQ Pitmasters. Angie Quaale, owner of Well-Seasoned, a gourmet food store on the Langley Bypass, wrapped up filming last month in Los Angeles where she joined forces with Toronto’s “Diva Q” barbecue team featuring Danielle Dimovski and her husband Vlado. Diva Q was one of thousands of teams that ap-

plied and competed in a field of five teams. The show featuring Diva Q and Quaale will air Sept. 2. Quaale is the first B.C. resident to ever be part of the popular show. “I was so honoured Danielle invited me to join her for this incredibly exciting and nerve-wracking experience,” said Quaale. “From the moment I landed in L.A., I was mic’d and on camera and we never knew what challenge or turn of events was ahead of us. I’ve competed in countless barbeque contests but this was definitely the most challenging yet.” On Sept. 19, Well Seasoned hosts Barbecue on the Bypass.

fter several years of working together with the Langley Community Chorus, Brenda Wilson and Tobi Crawford are striking out on their own, creating the Opus One Performing Arts Society (OOPAS). Wilson, who was music director with the LCC for the past 10 years, founded an adult beginning band in 2003 – the Langley Concert Band – has taught music in Burnaby since 1986, and sang with the Elektra Women’s Choir for 10 years. Crawford, with nearly 30 years of music experience, is currently one of the musical directors at Walnut Grove Secondary school (WGSS), and teaches voice and piano lessons privately. “OOPAS is a Langley-based family

he Langley City Library is marking 10 years in its current location with a celebration later this month, and it’s the public that gets the birthday gifts. Leading up to that, the library is keeping watch on numbers, looking for the 10,000th visitor during August. “We usually have between 20,000 and 25,000 visitors per month,” explained librarian Kim Davidson. So when the 10,000th visitor walks through the door this month, he or she will receive a prize. The branch, located within the City hall complex, has become a popular place in the past decade. “We’ve actually had more than two million visitors since the building opened 10 years ago,” she noted. As for the big anniversary celebration, expect a pancake breakfast, facepainting, storytelling, live music, refreshments, art, and Wii gaming on Aug. 25.

of ensembles that provides singers and instrumentalists, teens to adults, the opportunity for musical growth in a fun environment,” the duo boast. Public performances will include Langley and further afield, with tours as part of the program. Opus One Chorale, the nucleus of OOPAS, is a non-auditioned choir, open to novice and seasoned choristers alike, Wilson explained. They’re also developing Opus Jazz and Opus One Women’s Ensemble, both auditioned groups, that will apparently provide greater challenge for the more experienced singers. And working with the Langley Concert Band, they’re hoping to foster an environment that encourages music reading and playing skills. The concert band’s first rehearsal of the season is set for Sept. 13, 7-9 p.m. at WGSS, open to anyone with one year of playing experience. The first rehearsal for Opus One Chorale is Wednesday, Sept. 8, 6:45

n all ages show Aug. 21 in Aldergrove will help the Langley Food Bank outlet in Aldergrove. It didn’t start out with such a big scope. Initially 24-year-old musician Dwayne Morgan just wanted a place to play for him and a few other bands. The show at the Kinsmen Centre evolved into a fundraiser. “The food bank was chosen because I remembered reading an article – in the Advance, maybe? – about how the food bank wasn’t doing so well around Christmas last year,” Morgan said. “Everyone’s gotta eat.” Tickets – $10 advance only – can be requested at www. myspace.com/aldyvibes. The event isn’t set up to accept food donations but will accept cash contributions. As the planning progresses, more people are supporting the effort. “We have a few companies on board already,” he said. Any other companies that are interested can email Morgan at vibesmusic@live.com. If all goes well with this first show, expect more music showcases in the future. “I would like to do this again if it all goes smoothly and according to plan – Christmastime maybe?” he said. • More online at www.langleyadvance.com, click on “Entertainment”

appointments for the brides who are bringing a large entourage with them. But otherwise, Tobler said, they happily encourage drop-ins. So what’s in for wedding gowns this year? “Brides are moving in the direction of slimmer dresses,” Tobler explained, and Everything But the Groom has expanded its collection accordingly. As well, there’s a trend among brides to buy reception dresses – a shorter style dress that gives them the freedom to dance and have fun until the early morning hours. And Tobler said their boutique is offering a growing selection to fit that niche. More and more brides are also turning to Everything But The Groom for what’s called destination wedding dresses, typically gowns with shorter or no trains and lighter fabrics that more suited to getting married on a beach in Hawaii or Mexico. This store is located at 20538 Fraser Hwy. And in addition to offering dresses and accessories for weddings, it also cater heavily to graduations. In fact, now’s a perfect time to be shopping for next year’s grad gown, Tobler said, noting that all of last season’s dresses are currently on sale. “There’s great deals if you want to shop early for grad 2011,” she said, adding that the store offers a grad registry to make sure the same dress in the same colour is not sold to anyone else from the same grad class. Whatever special occasion is coming up in your life, drop by Everything But The Groom and check out the tremendous selection and incredible service offered by Goranko, Tobler and their four-member team. They describe their boutique as everything you could wish for and more! Let Langley’s premier bridal shop help make your dreams a reality.

5499 Salt Lane Downtown Langley

A quest to create a bridal shop that truly caters to the bride and her entourage – somewhere that is fun, youthful, and relaxed – was the goal of Heidi Tobler and Kristy Goranko when they first leased the 2,200square-foot retail space in downtown Langley City five years ago. They wanted to create a boutique that treated brides as much more than just a number or a price tag, but as a person venturing into one of the biggest and most exciting events of their life. Well, this duo achieved that goal in spades according to the hundreds of brides they’ve helped dress at Everything But The Groom. With four large changing rooms with adjoining viewing areas, as well as more than 175 bridal gowns in stock – not to mention a plethora of bridesmaid, mothers, and flower girl dresses – this Langley boutique is attracting brides from throughout the Lower Mainland, and even around the globe. One bride from Norway was in earlier this week to purchase her perfect gown, and a while back Tobler and Goranko sent a bride back to Australia with her full wedding ensemble. Like many of the “big city” stores, Everything But The Groom recommends dress fitting

ole control is very difficult. They don’t like eating baits, they’re very secretive – and though the feeding tunnels are fairly shallow, the living area can be up to 18” deep. Some people may suggest you plant Euphorbia lathyrus. This is also called the ‘Mole Plant’ because it’s supposed to deter moles. But if there’s something in a feeding tunnel a mole doesn’t like, it just abandons that one and uses other tunnels instead. There are many other methods home gardeners may try: mole traps, ultrasonic devices, flooding, or placing balls soaked in peppermint oil or castor oil plus laundry detergent and red pepper oil into the tunnels. • More advice on moles online at www.langleyadvance.com, click on “Entertainment”

Dear Anne:

Barbara McLean, email he big, hybrid gladioli corms aren’t reliably hardy in this climate. They’re usually planted April to mid-June to flower later in the summer. The only way to even hope to get them through at this time is to plant them at least 5” (10cm) deep in a very well-drained, sheltered place where they can get full sun. Then, if the winter is unusually warm, a few may survive. Even so, they’re not likely to be in good shape and even less likely to flower. If they’re fresh corms recently lifted from your friend’s garden after flower-

urrey Little Theatre’s facade is getting some flower power, just in time for the upcoming auditions for Cactus Flower. Theatre president Brigitte Seib of Langley, director of this fall’s production, felt the addition of some 1960s stylized flowers would not only brighten up the garbage bin at the front of the heritage theatre venue, but help get people in the spirits for the upcoming comedy. “The trash receptacle will display ever-changing artwork for each production this season,” Langley’s Brigitte Seib painted some Seib explained. 1960s styled flowers on the garbage Cactus Flower, a play bin in front of Surrey Little Theatre. by Abe Burrows, is a romantic comedy about a philandering dentist. It runs mid-October to early November. Seib, along with co-producers Ellie Parento and Lana Hart, are currently seeking multiple thespians – ranging in age from 21 to 75– for a series of different roles in this production. (Casting details are available at: www.surreylittletheatre.com/SLT/Auditions.html. Auditions are being held at 7 p.m on Aug. 16 and 17, at the Clayton Heights theatre space, 7027 184th St. “We are looking forward to another great season,” Seib said, and a busy one. “By increasing our lineup to five productions to include two additional youth productions we will be providing more opportunities for the youth of our community. With five shows running several weeks each, our annual 50-hour film competition and other evenings of fun being planned for the performing arts troupe, SLT will continue to provide quality entertainment for the young and old.” Other upcoming shows include Splinters directed by Langley’s own Tyler Seib, You’re A Good Man Charlie Brown directed by Langley’s own Allan Thain, and Murder of Crows being directed by Aldergrove’s Paul Cowhig.

Black Sox win national ‘E’ title

The Langley-based team defeated an entry from Victoria in the championship game. by Troy Landreville sports@langleyadvance.com

The Langley Black Sox rolled to the championship title at the SPN Men’s “E” Slo-Pitch Nationals, which were held over the August long weekend at McLeod Athletic Park. The tournament attracted 21 teams from across the country to MAP from July 30 to Aug. 2, including nine from B.C., two from Quebec, four from Saskatchewan, five from Ontario, and one from Manitoba. The Black Sox won eight of nine games, including

The national champion Langley Black Sox are, top row, left to right: Chris Walters (assistant coach), Kevin Henri (head coach), Rick Robertson, Mike Green, Shawn Bird, Allen Courchene, George Thrower, and Scott Sawicki. Bottom row, left to right: Ken Jensen, Derek Rowland, Dustin Albion, Chad Braley, Clayton Halliday (assistant coach), Duane Brolund, and Alec Bordignon. their final one to take top spot. Scores were: July 30 – 13-8 over the Angels (Quebec), and 8-7 over Maxum (Ontario). July 31 – 18-5 over the

Renegades (Ontario), and 3-1 over the Redskins (Saskatchewan). Aug. 1 – 8-3 over Pub St Martin (Quebec), and 12-4 over Mosher Lake Mudhens (Manitoba).

Aug. 2 – 9-8 over Mars Mariners (B.C.). In the championship round, the Black Sox lost their first game, 7-1 to Team Combat (Victoria). The Black Sox’ perfect record going into the championship round gave them an extra life in the final. They cashed in that extra life by downing Team Combat 6-4 in the second contest to seal the national title. “It was unreal. A lot of us are getting a little bit older – the average age of our team is 34 or 35 – so it was our one shot and we made it count,” Black Sox third baseman Clay Halliday said. “Nobody put themselves above the team. Defence was a huge part of it. We averaged about five-and-a-half runs against per game, which is pretty good for slo-pitch.”

Swimming

Olympians off to California Jake Tapp, Melanie Dodds, and Chelsey Salli will swim for Canada at the Senior Pan Pacific Championships. The Langley Olympians Swim Club (LOSC) has a trio of Canadian national team members in its fold. Olympians’ swim club members Jake Tapp, Chelsey Salli, and Melanie Dodds have qualified to swim for Canada after taking part in the Canadian Senior National Championships in Victoria from July 28-31. The meet drew more than 600 swimmers from 50 clubs from across Canada. The seven-member contingent from Langley helped the Olympians place seventh in Canada in team standings. LOSC had several university swimmers return home to race for medals, as well as earning spots on Canadian national teams this summer. Longtime LOSC swimmer and 2008 Canadian Olympian Jake Tapp won gold in the 50-metre and 100m backstrokes. Melanie Dodds swam to a silver medal in the 400m individual medley (IM) while Chelsey Salli won a gold medal in the 50m breaststroke and a bronze medal in the 100m breaststroke. The senior national championships was a selection meet for several Canadian teams this summer. The primary meet is the Senior Pan Pacific Championships, to be held in Irvine, Calif. Aug 21-22. The Pan Pacific Championships are held every four years with the United States, Japan, China, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand as primary countries competing.

Right now during the Super Summer Event, you can test drive to win one of the following prizes:

Tapp, Salli, and Dodds qualified to represent Canada. The Pan Pacific competition will act as the selection meet for Commonwealth Games in October, being held in India. In 2006 LOSC had four swimmers compete for Canada’s Pan Pacific team and they came away with great experience. Olympians head coach Brian Metcalfe said he was very pleased with his senior swimmers’ performance, preparation, and racing at the nationals. “It goes to show if swimmers really want to achieve their goals and are willing to do the work, they can accomplish their goals,” Metcalfe said. The local trio who made the Canadian team have been with LOSC since they were youngsters. Other Olympians who had successful swims were Morgan Mark, Charlie Tapp, Daniella Szalkai, and Rachelle Salli.

Szalkai took Challenge

LOSC’s Daniella Szalkai was selected to Canada’s North American Challenge Cup team, which swam in Santa Clara, Calif. Aug. 4-7. Canada competed against Southern California, Northern California, Mexico, and Pacific North West, and came away with the team title by beating out Southern California. Szalkai won gold in the girls 17-18 age group in the 200m butterfly, and 4 x 200m and 4 x 100m freestyle relays. Metcalfe believes this meet is a great opportunity for swimmers to start their international careers and hopes to see more LOSC swimmers on this team next year. continued on page A32…

The final bell has rung on one of Langley’s most colourful sports figures. Tommy Paonessa passed away Tuesday at age 103. In 2001, Paonessa was inducted into the BC Sports Hall of Fame in the boxing pioneer category. He was a deserving inductee. Over six decades, he made an extraordinary contribution to the sport on many levels – as an

athlete, coach, manager, builder, and pioneer. A boxer from the age of 11, he captured the B.C. bantamweight championship at age 19, and turned pro the following year. He boxed for 10 years and became a trainer and coach at age 30. Paonessa worked in the sport for 60 years in total. “I liked the exercise,” Tommy said, of his reason

Swimmer ‘did Canada proud’

…continued from page A31 “Daniella has worked very hard to earn this selection to the NACC, and did LOSC and Canada proud with her achievements,” Metcalfe said. In the past, LOSC swimmer Michael MacDonald was on the NACC team, which has helped in his development as a Canadian champion this past July at Age Group Nationals in Winnipeg. LOSC has fall registration Sept. 8, 10, and 11 at Walnut Grove and W.C. Blair Pools. For more, visit the LOSC website: langleyolympians.com, or 604-532-5257.

Ali earned a hard-fought 15-round decision. “It wasn’t [one sided], Paonessa but Ali won pretty well every round. But boy, George was tough. You could never knock him over,” said Paonessa, who felt Chuvalo and Rocky Graziano were the toughest boxers he’d ever seen. This past November, Paonessa celebrated his 103rd birthday at Langley Gardens Retirement Community.

KENNEDY,

CLEMENTS, George Victor On June 13th, 2010, we sadly said goodbye to George V Clements, a Langley resident born in Vancouver, BC, who lived a full and passionate life for 84 years. The love of his life, wife of 58 years, Lorna Catherine (“Bunty”) Clements, predeceased him by 3 months. George was survived by his siblings Barb, Ivy and Albert, and nieces and nephews. George, with his wife, was well known as a dedicated, longtime Director and spokesperson of Fur-Bearer Defenders, a non-profit society working to stop trapping cruelty and protect fur-bearing animals. Their legacy of hope and positive change will be continued by all who have learned from them, and cared and served beside them. George was also a Veteran of World War II, and had a successful career for many years as a school Principal. A Service of Remembrance will be held at 10am Sunday October 3rd, in Burnaby, BC. Please let us know if you are able to attend. For address and details, please contact and RSVP to 604-435-1850 (during office hours) or email jenniferallenbc@gmail.com . All are invited to bring stories or photos of George, or Bunty to share (or feel free to share them with us in advance if you are unable to attend). For those who wish, donations may be made to Fur-Bearer Defenders in lieu of flowers (ph: 604-435-1850).

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.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Aries March 21 - April 19: Your month of joy continues! Problems might not be solved, but they ebb. You might need to make a choice regarding a relationship, a relocation, or an opportunity Monday, Friday/Saturday. Hint: doing what you want, opting for expansion or under standing, for cheerfulness, for legal, publishing, international or educational “growth” is luckier than seeking to further your ambitions through a relationship. But start no new projects before Sept. 12. (Others might be skeptical toward you for the next two years if you show “naked ambition.” You might marry into another generation.)

Cancer June 21-July 22: Start nothing new before Sept. 12. Instead, apply yourself to ongoing projects, and protect these from supply disruptions, secondguessing, delays and mistakes. Your home life is very active now through early September – if not on the outside, then emotionally. A real estate deal could involve your career or prestige ambitions – but don’t start a new one: keep with what’s begun. A “long lost” acquaintance might get in touch – good, not spectacular. Sunday/Monday are romantic. Work succeeds Tuesday/Wednesday. Relationships turn volatile Thursday/Friday: a structural change is “destined.”

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Before Sept. 12, start no new projects, especially in legal, governmental, administrative, manufacturing, tax, charitable, spiritual, educational, far travel, publishing or similar areas. Your romantic, social and personal magnetism is at a great peak – take advantage, don’t stay home! However, since nothing new will work, focus (until Sept. 12) on people you’ve already met. If you’re after love, stand before old flames, or present company. This week, your own sober outlook might subtly clash with kids, home, realty objectives – a partnership needs hope, assurance: give it!

Taurus April 20-May 20: Start no new projects before Sept. 12. Slowdowns, indecision, secondguessing, missed appointments and supply disruptions could “populate” the weeks ahead. An old flame might return soon – if after Aug. 21, it could lead to strong romance! If that happens, you will need to dec ide whether this relationship has a long-term future. Many half-hidden, slowly evolving forces and “subconscious wrestling matches” exist here. But it could be exceptional! Early week demands a choice between chores/duties. Financial luck high Tuesday/ Wednesday. Love fights work, Thursday onward.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Defer new starts, projects, relationships until Sept. 12. Those begun now will meet indecision, delay and, ultimately, lack of heart – especially in monetary regions. Focus on what’s already started – and money (etc.) from the past. August is a fine time to revisit old haunts, friends – pleasure is certain, flirtation and a bit of heartquickening quite possible, too! A trip might interfere with your work demands: if so, you choose. Sunday/ Monday emphasize home, kids and a casual vs. profound choice (in relationships,law,intellect,travel). Romance, creative flows, Tuesday/Wednesday!

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start nothing new before Sept. 12, especially in social, investment, financial and organizational zones. These areas might yield fruits from the past – be aware, ready to pluck them. (E.g., someone from an old social circle might call; or a past investment you couldn’t capture returns. Jump in, if you know it’s good.) A secret love could attract you August or early September. You might be wiser to wait until Sept. 9 onward, when your magnetism will soar! Vexations in communications/travel signal the need for a whole new system/vehicle, etc. – after Sept. 12.

Gemini May 21-June 20: Start nothing new, relationships nor projects, before Sept. 12. Delays, indecision, second-guessing and “no shows” increase. A former domestic matter, a prodigal child, a real estate idea/urge/project might return. This could be good, but be cautious: over the few months ahead, someone might oppose you in these areas. (This could take the form of unpredictable action by a cooperator or partner.) You’ve entered romantic territory. Early week, you face a choice between romance and friendship, or between being creative or social. Late week, DO NOT gamble with finances or sex!

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Finish, advance ongoing projects. Refrain from starting anything new. A slowdown starts next week, lasting to Sept. 12. Sunday/ Monday could solidify a source of income,and/or bring a durable set of ideas, a practical “life philosophy” that helps you go forward steadily. Instability also lurks, if you allow pleasure or romantic notions to steer you away from duties or practical goals. Contemplate the different paths of earnings versus investments. You might make a choice between these now to mid2011. Rest, contemplate to Tuesday. Money’s good Friday/Saturday. A good week!

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Defer new starts until Sept. 12 onward – especially in relationships, career, VIP relations, litigation, negotiation, relocation and dealings with the public. (E.g., don’t start a public relations campaign, lawsuit, love affair, etc.) You might profit from reprising the past in these – e.g., contacting a former employer in your career search. Your social life hums along, and love could be real, “light” and non-suffocating. (Love’s laughter can be far healthier than love’s extremities.) You impress others Tuesday/Wednesday! All week, revise hopes to meet money realities.

August 15 - 21 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Don’t launch new projects or relationships before Sept. 12. Reprise past ventures, or continue with ongoing ones – protect the latter from misunderstandings, delays, missed appointments, etc. An old flame (the love was gentle, proper) might reappear in the weeks ahead. If you’re unattached, “re-engaging” probably couldn’t hurt! (He/she is ready to “go forth” sexually.) All week, your status, prestige, relations with higherups come under review. (It could be your review!) Deep changes are in store. Be aware that finance (and sex) has a “fooling glitter” right now. Caution. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Don’t start new projects or relationships before Sept. 12. Especially avoid new financial,mutual or partnership ventures.Deep desires, urges and insights well up from the past – a past sexual or financial interest might return also. Nothing wrong with these, but examine the financial before proceeding. Your legal, intellectual, love, cultural, educational and far-travel spheres grow increasingly active – and beneficial. This week presents a rare chance to seal a deal (NOT a new one!) in any of these areas – including love! Wishes can come true midweek – be diplomatic, reasonable. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: An “ex” might reappear in the next several weeks – or a relocation opportunity, a deal that was never quite cemented, an opportunity to place yourself in front of the public; if you’re unlucky, even a lawsuit. You’re working hard, so have less time for these “opportunities” – therefore, jump fast, carpe diem. Your financial and sexual urges are active and rising, but neither fits easily with your “wisest future,” so do some deep pondering – remember, you’re exiting a decade of hard work, entering one of enjoyment. Be ambitious mid-week. Decide between quick money, and big. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
