Blackberry creations were devoured by hungry visitors on Wednesday. by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

Mmmm, blackberries – so tasty, yet so invasive. The delicious berry is an invasive plant species which, when introduced to an area, can overrun it and destroy native plants in the process. Of the invasive plant and animal species in the Lower Mainland, blackberries have

the strongest foothold, according to Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS) executive director Nichole Marples. “They won’t be eradicated, but we can get people to control them,” she said Wednesday during the Blackberry Bake-Off, held as part of the Langley Demonstration Garden’s 10th annual open house. The stars of the annual bake-off are the blackberry creations made available for the public to devour. Marples said the event “opens the conversation about invasive species.” The Himalayan blackberry was introduced to North America from India via

England in 1885, and quickly became a highly invasive species. Himalayan blackberry vines spread rapidly, blanketing vast areas. While its fruit is delicious, the plant itself takes over natural vegetation and forces out indigenous plant life. Marples said cutting the plant down, in addition to picking the fruit off its vines, is an excellent way of controlling its spread while at the same time getting your hands on some of the more hard-to-reach berries. She noted that invasive species are the biggest threat to biodiversity, behind habitat loss.

Police probe dismembered cats

Mounties are warning pet owners after two cats died under unusual circumstances. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

At least two cats have been found dead and dismembered, and Langley Mounties are worried the animals may have been deliberately killed. A woman living in South Brookswood told the Langley Advance that she and her daughters found one of the cats on Tuesday morning. The cat, a local stray, had followed her daughter home the

previous night before vanishing under a bridge near 204th Street and 24th Avenue. The woman, who asked not to be named, said they found the back half of the cat the next morning, and recognized it by its colouration. She said the cat had two puncture wounds, and appeared to have been cut cleanly in half. “The other thing is there was no blood, like it had been hit by a car,” she said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks confirmed that another cat was also found dismembered in the area earlier in the month. “Police would obviously be concerned if it was determined the deaths were caused by a

A suspected arson damaged a gym and weight room at Aldergrove Community Secondary. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Fire tore up the side of Aldergrove Community Secondary late Wednesday night, scorching the gymnasium. The suspicious fire was reported five minutes before midnight, said district chief Bryant Ross. It started in two dumpsters set up against the school and filled with old roofing materials. The gym is being re-roofed over the summer, and the bins were full of old wood and insulation. The fire quickly leaped up a tarp hanging down the side of the school and got into the roof, Ross said. Langley Township firefighters brought the blaze under control within 20 minutes, but they were there for almost four hours getting it completely extinguished. “It was pretty stubborn inside the dumpsters themselves,” Ross said. While Ross couldn’t confirm the fire was arson, he said it is considered suspicious. The fire has been reported to the RCMP. On Thursday morning, cleanup crews were using a front-end loader to scoop up scorched insulation and piles of fire suppressing foam. A school district staff member,

Brazen thieves take zoo’s bank machine An ATM was swiped from the Greater Vancouver Zoo by a duo using a truck. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

In broad daylight, a pair of thieves managed to steal an entire automatic teller machine from the Greater Vancouver Zoo a week ago. The thieves apparently pulled a truck onto zoo property at about 6:15 p.m. on Aug. 11, and hauled the freestanding machine up into the back of their vehicle.

As they loaded the machine, zoo staff confronted the thieves, said Cpl. Holly Marks, the spokesperson for the Langley RCMP. The thieves beat a hasty retreat – so hasty that they smashed their truck directly through a gate, causing extensive damage to zoo property. The truck sped north on 264th Street. While zoo staff gave the police a description of the truck, and its licence plate number, the police couldn’t locate the vehicle. The licence plates had been stolen from another vehicle, and Marks said there is a high likelihood that the truck was stolen. The suspects are a man and woman in their early 30s.

The man, who drove the truck, is Caucasian and stands about 6’3”, has a broad build, and was wearing a black top and blue jeans. He has a deep voice. The woman with him stands about 5’4” and has a slim build and dark hair pulled back into a ponytail. She was wearing a zipup hoodie and blue jeans. Both were wearing ballcaps and sunglasses during the heist. The pickup likely sustained a fair bit of front end damage as it burst through the gate. Anyone with information that could help police locate the thieves can call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Today’s modern Diesel engines are a lot different than those we used to see and hear. Gone is the noise, smoke and smell of the past and replacing them is the modern electronic fuel injected, quiet and clean modern Diesel. Many people have purchased Diesel trucks for their pulling power and great fuel economy and are reaping the benefits of reduced maintenance and lower fuel bills.

Student Home Phone + High Speed Internet

A Diesel isn’t right for everyone and they do cost more to purchase and maintain but they do make up for it in reliability and longevity. Another thought to consider with Diesels is that not every repair shop or automotive technician is trained and equipped to handle their service and repair needs. With the cost of Diesel engines being well above the $10,000 mark, you probably want to take it to someone who is well versed in their unique service needs.

Summer Sundays 10 am

A pail of toxic paint stripper fell off the back of a pickup truck, somewhere between Abbotsford’s Queen Street and the Langley Airport on Monday. The five-gallon metal drum slipped out after the driver accidentally left the tailgate down, said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks. The industrial chemical inside could burn skin, and it would be dangerous to open in an enclosed area due to toxic fumes. Police have retraced the driver’s route but have not found the drum. They are now appealing to the public. The pail is black metal, with the name Turco on the side, and a hazard placard with the number 2922. The vehicle was a white Ford F150 extended cab pickup, towing a utility trailer. Anyone who has found the pail, or who saw it fall off the truck and can help police find it is asked to call the local police. In Langley, call 604-532-3200.

A tiger at the Greater Vancouver Zoo wanders past his pond on an overcast day.

A three-day birthday party for Aldergrove’s Greater Vancouver Zoo begins today. Several guests from the City and Township, the Leq’a:mel First Nation, and one of the original owners of the zoo will be on hand to help cut a birthday cake. Athletes from the Abbotsford Heat and Langley Chiefs, firefighters, and musicians will also be stopping by. For kids there will be face painting, and the 40th Wild & Wonderful Years contest will still be accepting entries for its big draws. A 2011 Toyota Camry hybrid, an Alaskan cruise, and trips to Disneyworld and San Diego are up for grabs. The zoo originally had just a few animals, but now has more than 600 from 135 species.

No tears for drunks driving Safer roads are just around the corner. At least that’s the goal behind new drinking-and-driving legislation that will come into force exactly one month from today. As of Sept. 20, police in B.C. will be armed with the toughest legal tools in Canada to get impaired drivers off the roads, faster and for longer periods of time. According to Solicitor General Mike de Jong, impaired driving has been on the rise in B.C. – an alarming revelation that spurred the provincial government to make it easier to remove the perpetrators from their vehicles. When the new law comes into effect, drinking drivers who fail the Criminal Code standard 0.08 per cent breath test will be immediately banned from driving for 90 days, will have their vehicle impounded for 30 days, and will be fined $500 – aside from possible criminal charges that carry additional fines and potential jail terms. The new provincial legislation adds a “warning” range to the standard breathalyser test. A reading between 0.05 and the criminally liable 0.08 per cent will earn the errant driver a three-day driving ban and a $200 fine. Getting caught at that level more than once within five years ups the ante to a seven-day ban and $300 the second time, and a 30-day ban with a $400 fine for a third time. Research has shown that, although below the Criminal Code’s radar, drivers with breath alcohol levels between 0.05 and 0.08 per cent are seven times more likely to be involved in a fatal crash than sober drivers are. Numbers of impaired driving charges rose 18 per cent from 2008 to 2009. That is unacceptable. That is, in fact, fatally unacceptable. There will be no tears from us for anyone who feels hard done by when they get nailed under the new law. – B.G.

Environment

Valuable water evaporating Dear Editor,

What good are the Stage 3 watering restrictions if they are not enforced? If our water problems are as bad as we are told, why is there no enforcement or at least somewhere people can complain to protect the environment! I have neighbours who believe in watering their lawn in the middle of the day despite the fact that the majority of the water evaporates before it even can soak into the ground, especially with current temperatures. Their attitude is if they get caught they will pay the little fine. I do not see anyone checking the neighbourhoods to see who has green lawns or to speak to the people who openly flout the law. If it is a law, help the people who live here and want to be law-abiding citizens ensure the laws are maintained. If water is not a problem, then remove the restrictions and let all of us have a chance to have a green lawn. Ian N. Gomm, Langley

health care and schools. The welfare system is overburdened and yet every time one of these boats shows up the money taps open up. These refugees do not speak English, have no papers to prove who they are, and they are a burden in every sense of the word because they are handed free medical, education, and welfare money to live on while they sit around waiting for their claims to be processed, and all of this at the expense of those who pay our fair share and then some for these very same things. We are left wondering why it is these sick, broke, illiterate people are allowed to come here and live off of us, while others who are already here are being deported. Two immediate cases come to mind – the gentleman from El Salvador being deported because he belonged to a terrorist organization 15 years ago, yet that same organization is now recognized worldwide as being a legitimate government. He is being forced to leave behind a wife and three children, yet he has been here for 13 years working and paying taxes and being a good citizen. The other is the man from the U.S., who is married to a Canadian but failed to complete the appropriate paperwork to enable him to stay. He too will be leaving a wife and three or four children behind. The hypocrisy of this whole immigration system is nothing short of laughable and it needs more than an overhauling. The whole system needs to be scrapped and put in the hands of someone with a good sense of justice and a large amount of common sense – which seems to be lacking. Surely this does not seem right to every Canadian who is just getting by these days and especially to those less fortunate who are constantly having to fight with the governments for even the smallest amount of help – help which should be given to them rather than individuals who simply show up on our shores with their hands out.

Following Donny’s lead I have just returned back from a trip to Las Vegas. While there, I attended the Donny and Marie Show in Las Vegas. Donny was promoting a new charity program he wanted to start with 10 people. His new program was called “MAD” (Making a Difference.) He said he would give $100 to 10 people in the audience, with the idea they would use this $100 to go out and make some kind of positive difference in this world. The top 10 would only have to agree to keep track of their year, and report back next year at a special

The general consensus in the barn is the B.C.-Alberta split season is a pipe dream; that it’s never going to happen.

Great Canadian is already cutting race purses, the backstretchers say. Now they want horsemen to add travel costs to the expense side of their ledgers? How is that going to work, they ask. Gemmill doesn’t like what he’s hearing. “I came out here in 1974 with

Jim Keeling Sr. to revive harness racing in B.C. I’ve been racing since 1957. I’ve raced in Toronto, Montreal, Ottawa, all over. We’re supposed to be partners with Great Canadian, but they just treat us like we’re second-class. They make it sound like we’re costing them money. They take $20,000 a month out of our purse pool for expenses.” Gemmill is less than impressed with the way Coleman’s ministry deals with Great Canadian. Howard Blank is a Great Canadian vice-president. “We’re committed to the 2011 season and we’re working with Alberta to do something,” Blank said, adding slot machines have contributed millions every year in funding for horse racing. “We’re not closing down Fraser Downs. We may have to reduce the number of races. We’re having to make decisions nobody likes. The easy thing would be to stop racing at Fraser Downs. Will there be reductions? Yes. There’s not as much spending by customers and we have to do something.” Meanwhile, over on the backstretch, people wonder what the future holds. “It’s been tough to make a go of it around here for years,” said groom Duane Mannery. “This announcement just puts the nail in the coffin. We’ve gotta start looking for other work.”

Vancity membership offers privileges to PNE attendees What’s in

Store

Roxanne Hooper

rhooper@langleyadvance.com

Every retail or “warehouse” business in town, it seems, has introduced memberships and bonus cards, or some reason why consumers should provide them with all their personal information. My wallet is literally overflowing with such cards. Well Vancity is offering a little incentive this week that might prompt a few local people to join their “club.” For anyone who has paid the high price to attend and park at the Pacific National Exhibition, starting Tuesday, Aug. 24, at 11 a.m., Vancity members can purchase fair

gate passes for only $5. That’s a saving of $15 per person, almost motivation enough to get a bank account at this credit union, I’m thinkin’. “This is one of the benefits of being a Vancity member and allows us to thank our members for choosing to do business with us. It is through their business and trust that we’re able to make a real impact in our community,” president and CEO Tamara Vrooman said. This doesn’t mean you have to buy the tickets at Vancity. Members can just show a debit or Visa card at the PNE ticket booths on the day of attendance.

Bay celebrates 20 years in Langley

It’s hard to believe that the Bay has been in Langley for 20 years already. I remember, almost like it was yesterday, when the Willowbrook Shopping Centre consisted of one strip of stores, anchored on one side by Safeway at one end, and K-Mart at the other end. I worked for Coles bookstore, and would eat my lunch out back looking out over a field where the current Bay and Safeway are now, but at the time it was nothing more than a muddy field with goats grazing in it. I digress. I wanted to tell you about the Bay, and invite you out to a party they’re having tomorrow – Saturday, Aug. 21. A barbecue will be hosted at the north entrance, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with a cake-cutting ceremony at noon. The event will also include entertainment, giveaways, and hourly draws. I think there’s even going to be a little recognition given to Lulhi Griggs, the longest employee at the Bay Langley. She’s been with the company for 37 years – obviously not all of that here in Langley – and currently works as a store marketer and an “expert” in their lingerie department. It’s an opportunity, store manager Connie Savicevic said, for the company – which has some pretty deep historic ties to (Fort) Langley to thank customers for their ongoing support. The store actually opened on Aug. 22, 1990, under the direction of store manager Bill Stanbury. It now has 121 sales associates and managers on payroll, and has been a significant contributor to a number of local, regional, and national charities and causes.

Arts Alive!

Teen mangles silverware by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

I

Armed with some utensils from the antique mall in Fort Langley, she and her uncle headed into his Creston workshop during an Easter visit in 2009. It wasn’t as easy as she thought. They didn’t emerge until they’d hammered out the first semblance of a ring. Anderson called it an abomination, but her brother liked the twisted piece and can still be seen wearing it with pride. continued on page A17…

t’s fair to say that Katelyn Anderson wasn’t born with a silver spoon in her mouth. But she might very well make her fortune thanks to a blend of her own creativity and partially disfigured but finely polished piles of silverware. At the very least, the 17-year-old Walnut Grove artist hopes to pay her $4,000 dorm fees when she attends the fine arts program at Trinity Western University this fall. Anderson makes jewelry out of silver spoons – and forks – and she is among about 150 artists who will be selling her wares at the Arts Alive! festival in downtown Langley City on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Between weekend festivals like this one in her own backyard, and regular appearances at the Langley Community Farmers Markets on Wednesdays at Kwantlen Polytechnic University on the Langley Bypass, Anderson hopes to sell enough jewelry to cover her accommodations next month. “I’ve always been into arts, even in elementary school,” Anderson explained. With a father ,Kent, who writes, her mother Karen who draws and paints, her brother Kirk who writes and does photography, and her sister Kelsey who draws, paints, and teaches voice and piano, the youngest sibling said her family’s artistic bent has rubbed off. “There was lots of art in my life, from Walnut Grove the beginning,” she said, listing her ingrad Katelyn volvement with theatre, ceramics, choirs, Anderson hopes and most recently jewelry design. her silver spoon It was a trip her parents took to (and fork) art England a few years back that Anderson will pay for her credits for twigging her serious interest dorm room at in making jewelry. university this She’d taken a metal work class in fall.

Y

ou and your family, sports team, or church group can make the front page of the local newspaper. The Langley Advance is once again partnering with the Downtown Langley Merchants Association to host the kids zone at this year’s Arts Alive! on Saturday, Aug. 21. By introducing a new front page booth at the children’s area, they’re hoping to raise some coin for The Canadian Cancer Society’s Cops for Cancer, and specifically for kids living with cancer. Working in conjunction with Ultra Digital Printing, they’re going to be able to offer laminated front pages for only $5 for an 8.5X11 inch, and $10 for 12X18 (every cent to Cops for Cancer). The kids zone at Arts Alive! is at the east end Fraser Highway’s one-way section, at the old Coast Capital building.

BC Cultural Crawl

Langley shows off its artist bent For the month of August, the spotlight is on a series of local events and shows.

L

angley is one of 80 communities taking part in the ninth annual BC Cultural Crawl this month, turning the spotlight on a series of workshops, art shows, festivals, theatre, dance performances, and other arts or cultural events and locations that this town has to offer between Aug. 1 and 31. BC Cultural Crawl is a self-guided tour of community-initiated events that encourage people – who might not have otherwise done so – to explore all that the community has to offer, explained Alison Brotherton, executive director of the Lang-

ley Arts Council. It’s a celebration of the vibrant arts, culture, and heritage in the province – and specifically in Langley, she explained, and one of the most notable on the local itinerary is Arts Alive! festival in downtown Langley City this Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Other Crawl events listed on the webbased directory include next weekend’s International Festival, the farmer’s market at Kwantlen Polytechnic University Wednesdays, concerts in the park at Douglas Park Friday nights at 5 p.m., and campfire songs at the Fort Langley National Historical Site every Saturday at 7 p.m. To find out more about Langley’s bounty of arts and culture, visit the crawl website at: www.bcculturalcrawl.com.

since they have senior moments and forget where they used to live. All they need for a nest is a hole in the ground. This could be an old mousehole or a hole under a board, or under a flat stone – somewhere rain can’t penetrate. Nothing bothers to rob a bumblebee hive: the total amount of honey in a nest is about two teaspoons.

A colony starts small when the queen comes out of hibernation but later the larger hives can reach 200 bumblebees. Invaluable for pollinating fruit, vegetable and ornamental crops in spring, mason bees have never been known to sting. They usually begin pollinating during the first warm spell in Febru-

sealed with green chewed up leaves. Mason bee tubes are sealed with grey mud. Wasps also pollinate, though not very successfully because they’re too smooth to carry pollen well. But tiny wasps and large yellow-jackets visit flowers to eat the nectar and so some pollination happens anyway. Yellow-jackets are also useful predators of caterpillars. All pollinating insects are attracted to gardens where a shallow body of water has perching places or moist soil around the edge.

ue to mites and pesticides, honeybees are vanishing in many countries – and as suppliers of honey they are absolutely irreplaceable. But pollination in home gardens isn’t a lost cause because it can be done very effectively by other members of the bee family. The crucial thing gardeners can do is make gardens welcoming for these lesserknown but hardworking bees. Bumblebees, for instance are resistant to the dreaded varroa mite which has decimated many honeybee hives. Other mites also attack bumblebees, but most weaken rather than kill outright. These bees are willing to work in temperatures below 50F (10C) – unlike honeybees that don’t stir until temperatures are above 60 F (16C). Bumblebees are good-tempered and their stings are extremely rare, though very painful when they do occur. They work commercially in greenhouses, pollinating tomatoes and sometimes peppers and cucumbers. Bumblebees are said to adapt well to greenhouses

ary but die off by mid-June leaving eggs behind. In nature, each egg is sealed off in a plant stem or hole in a tree. By spring, the eggs have gone through a larval stage and transformed into large blue-black hairy mason bees resembling bluebottles. For gardeners, the tube houses sold in early spring in garden centres can be placed on a house or shed wall for use by mason bees. Many commercial tube houses are wooden “sandwich” type blocks which have been scooped out with a router so that they form tubes when the layers are together. Others are moulded plastic. Those first cocoons are clean and viable. Yearly maintenance involves taking the tube houses apart and discarding the dirty looking cocoons because they will contain mites. The others can be placed outside in a birthing box (like a small birdhouse) to await warm weather. People in rural areas may find they can simply put mason bee tube houses on a house or shed wall and mason bees from the wild will lay eggs in the tubes. So will leaf-cutter bees. These are great pollinators working late into the summer when mason bees have vanished. You can identify their tubes because they are

hat is your favourite seasonal fruit purchase? For many, it is peaches. Believed to have originated in China more than 4,000 years ago, peaches now make up a large portion of the fresh fruit crop sales in B.C. Similar to many tree fruits, peaches will ripen after they have been picked. However, they will not get any sweeter. The sweetness level will be determined by whether the peaches were allowed to grow to maturity on the tree. Although maturity and ripeness may sound the same, a mature fruit is described as one that has grown to a degree that allows it to ripen. The ripeness of fruit focuses more on the texture appeal. Maximum sweetness levels will develop on the tree, while the juiciness and softness will continue to evolve after they have been harvested. Peaches obviously offer their best quality to our awaiting appetites when they are consumed fresh. However, they can easily be canned or frozen to help extend the season. Basically there are two distinct qualities of the many varieties of peaches currently cultivated: clingstone and freestone. One may assume that the definitions of these two categories are defining the level of ease in the removal of the stone. Although this is true, it goes beyond this first assumption. Clingstone peaches also offer a firmer flesh that is preferable for canning, as they tend to hold their shape better. The flesh in freestone peaches is more delicate and should be reserved for eating fresh. These two classifications also fall true for plums. If you purchase peaches that are firm, leaving them at room temperature for a few days will allow them to soften. Otherwise they should be stored in the crisper of the refrigerator to ensure the maximum lifespan of their edibility. The use of peaches in desserts is an obvious expectation; however, there are other methods to capture their mouthwatering enticement. The first idea that comes to mind is a peach salsa. Mix small chopped pieces with some complementing flavours and colours such as red pepper, purple onion, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice, and of course, some crushed garlic. Season it with salt, pepper, and a bit of sugar. You will have an incredible summer condiment to complement grilled specialties from your barbecue, such as chicken breast or salmon. Luckily, summertime allows us the opportunity to enjoy the complete natural freshness of this fragrant fuzzy fruit. Try saying that three times fast. • Catch Chef Dez’s tip for peeling peaches online at www.langleyadvance.com, click on “Entertainment”

Langley’s Sage Brocklebank, a LFAS grade from 1995, is credited with creating this volunteer mentorship program, which officially kicks off with the picnic, from 1 to 4 p.m. “It’s an opportunity for the mentors and mentees to meet and forge new relationships,” said Brocklebank, a Vancouver/Los Angeles-based actor who starred in Psych. “When I started out as a young actor, I often felt stranded, and uncertain as to which actions to take. This program is created to provide guidance and structure for young artists,” he added. In addition to monthly meetings, proteges will be given the opportunity to accompany their mentors to rehearsals, to auditions and on set. “This gives them a realistic view of their field,” Brocklebank explained.

Now, if that notice tweaked your interest and desire to see this local singer and songwriter in person, next week is your chance. He’s joining Murrayville’s own Tucker Green for his CD release party at Willoughby Hall on Thursday, Aug. 26, at 7 p.m. The CD, Halfway to Daylight, arrived last month and according to Green is being “extremely well received” and getting him some media attention in the cities on his upcoming Canadian tour. The tour itself – which kicks off next month – will include stops in Tucker Green Calgary, Edmonton, and Toronto to promote his new album. The record combines the classic sounds of Americana, inspired by people like Bruce Springsteen, with popular roots-rock melodies. In the meantime, check out his release party. The show will feature a full band, and will also include an intro set by Pick, whom Green worked with

Ringette

Youth soccer

Langley resident Tracy Townsend was among those honoured by Ringette Canada.

Respect and sportsmanship will be a big part of the day.

World champs earn accolades by Dan Olson

Postmedia Network Inc.

It’s not often that young mothers are inducted into halls of fame. For Tracy Townsend and Leanne Ball, being part of the induction class of 2010 is a rare and special honour. And a bit of a surprise, too. The two former PoCo ringette stars were recognized earlier this summer, when Ringette Canada honoured the 1996 and 2002 Canadian teams that were world champions. Townsend, a Brookswood resident who rose up the ringette ladder and played it to the elite international level, was known as Tracy Crowe back then. A national calibre player, she played – and continues to play, this time as a coach – a major role in B.C. joining the mostly Alberta and Ontario juggernauts in the medal hunt. “Ringette has helped so many people grow up,” she said of the sport. “I am confident, ambitious, determined, work well with all sorts of characters, can deal with adversity, and I could go on forever…” She said the credit for developing her and her teammates development as players and people belongs to her father, Greg Crowe. She was a late pick-up for Team Alberta that went on to defeat Finland in the final in 1996. A goaltender, Ball went through a year-long grueling tryout process to make the 2002 squad, which again edged archrival Finland for the world title.

she said. “That final was a pretty cautious, real tight game.” Townsend recently took over the head coaching duties of the Fraser Valley Avalanche of the National Ringette League. “This is my greatest achievement,” Townsend noted. “I am a world champion – in the sports world that title is a big deal. What makes being on the [1996] team special to me is the fact that they were already a great team, they had won the rights to be called Team Canada. “They were not required to add anyone to their roster but they chose me to be on their team. Out of every ringette player in Canada they called me. That is very special and I would have walked barefoot across broken glass to be with them, too.”

Western Lacrosse Association

Grimes WLA’s top defensive player Even though the Langley Thunder struggled through much of the 2010 Western Lacrosse Association regular campaign, one of their most reliable players was recognized for his standout play. Mike Grimes has won the Gord Nicholson Trophy for WLA Defensive Player of the Year. A third-year WLA player, Grimes has been a solid addition to Langley’s defence since being selected in the first round of the 2008 WLA entry draft. He moved to the West

Coast from Peterborough in 2007 and finished his junior career with Burnaby Lakers of the BC Junior A Lacrosse League. During the winters Grimes plays professional lacrosse for the Washington Stealth of the National Lacrosse League. Grimes finished the 2010 season with five goals and six assists in 15 games. He was second on the team in penalty minutes with 35. Team-wise, the Thunder ended up with a 6-12 regular season record, and missed the playoffs.

Women’s golf

Kim third in pro debut The Langley golfer’s short game was the key to an impressive outing.

Langley Advance files

Langley Thunder’s Mike Grimes, pictured in action versus Victoria earlier this season.

Newly turned professional Sue Kim finished in a three-way tie for third place at the 2010 Canadian PGA Women’s Championship. The event was held this week at Burlington Golf & Country Club in Burlington, Ont. Kim, a Langley resident, finished at two-under par, tied with Seema Sadekar of Toronto and defending champion Jessica Shepley of Oakville, Ont. Kim made a splash in her professional debut. After opening the 36-hole event

with an even-par 71 on Tuesday, she followed up with a great round of twounder par 69 on Wednesday. With one of the sharpest short games in Canadian women’s golf, Kim reeled off five birdies and three bogies, and made a fine par save on the 18th hole. Sadekar, Shepley and Kim all took home $4,166.67 for their strong play. Kim said her first career paycheque is one she will always remember. She now heads to Winnipeg for next week’s CN Canadian Women’s Open Tournament champion Laura Bavaird of Grosse Ile, Mich., sealed the deal with a four-foot par putt for the win, and the first-place cheque of $12,000.

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.

WRIGHT Jeffery James Alvin April 6, 1988 – August 7, 2010 Dedicated father and husband, beloved son, brother, friend…. Suddenly and tragically, on August 7, 2010, our wonderful Alvin was taken from us. Predeceased by his grandmother, Anne Campbell Wright, Alvin leaves behind baby daughter Alyssa; wife, Heather; father, Allan Wright; mother, Frances Mazurenko; paternal grandfather, Jeffrey Wright; maternal grandmother, E t h el Mo r a it i s ; b r o th e r s Alistaire and Alex Wright; inlaws Craig and Wendy Hannon and their sons, Nick and Matt. Alvin will be dearly missed and fondly remembered by all whose lives he touched with his humour, kindness and infectious smile. A memorial service for Alvin will be held on Friday August 20th, 2010 at 1:00 pm at Bethel Mennonite Church, 24687 – 56th Avenue, Langley, B.C. Reception and refreshments following. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Alyssa Wright Trust Fund at Scotiabank, Squamish Branch.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Cancer June 21-July 22: Start nothing new before Sept. 12. Sunday begins four weeks of travel, communications, errands, curiosity, casual acquaintances, siblings, paperwork, news, and “daily business.” A busy, not important time. It’s busy partly because these activities (travel, communications, etc.) meet delays, misses, mistakes, forgetfulness. Keep a running “to do” list, take a list when shopping, etc. Your home, kids, a security or realty project remain front-and-centre. Finances, intimacy, lifestyle decisions favoured Sunday/Monday. Gentle love, wisdom mid-week. Ambition, Friday/Saturday.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Rest, lie low, contemplate, be charitable and spiritual now to late September. Don’t start new projects before Sept. 12. Anticipate delays, mistakes in administrative duties and government, institutional links. A tax or other neglected matter might return to demand completion. But in general, life will flow smoothly, your romantic progress (if you’re in one) pleases, life is sweet and nostalgic! (If you’re single, unattached, late January to early summer 2011 will bring a lucky partnership opening.) Romance, creative urges Sunday/Monday; exciting meetings Friday/Saturday. Work, mid-week.

Taurus April 20-May 20: Reject new starts, projects and relationships before Sept. 12. Loads of work streams your way, but there’s satisfaction, even affection in this. Also, a month of romance, pleasure, charming kids, speculation and beauty starts now! You’ll have lots of relief from all those duties. (But keep your eye on the ball, for late September will bring another basket of chores.) Your status/career meet luck Sunday (best) and Monday. Social joys, optimism, happiness and entertainment arrive Tuesday to Thursday. Your “destined love” is “around.” An old flame? Lie low, rest late week.

Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Projects, relationships and ventures begun before Sept. 12 will almost certainly meet overwhelming mistakes, indecision and delays. So stick with the ongoing, or past situations, especially in earnings and spending – an area that will generally be fortunate for the four weeks ahead. (An “unseen destiny” aids you in money areas midweek.) Double-check amounts on cheques, change at the store, watch your wallet, etc. Relationships demand (and reward) your attention Sunday (best) and Monday. Secrets, intimacy, lust, investments, debt, mid-week. Gentle love, wisdom Friday/ Saturday.

Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start no important new projects, ventures, relationships before Sept. 12. That might be difficult, as your mind naturally travels to the future for the next four weeks – you’re optimistic! Well, enjoy the state. Your popularity grows, social joys enter, entertainment, flirtations abound. A former lover or sweet friend might return. It’s fun and full of bounce, so don’t say no. But on a deeper level, the love here will raise issues of “deep duty,” perhaps of burden, or ”sweet sorrow.” You decide what’s worth what. Duties, sweet or not, appear Sunday/Monday, Friday/Saturday.

Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your energy and charisma soar this week through the next few, Virgo. But don’t start big new (or even small important) projects, nor relationships, before Sept. 12. So that leaves you in a bind: you’re in the best start time of the year energywise, and one of the worst circumstantially. Solution: seize something incomplete or abandoned from the past, and revive it. Best (past) place to look: earnings, money, possessions, rote learning, memory, a sensual contact, financial investment/debt, sexual bond, lifestyle change. Work’s lucky Sunday, relationships and travel lucky Tuesday/Wednesday.

Aries March 21 - April 19: A month of work and health issues begins Sunday. Yet your main experience will be pleasure this week. Sunday/ Monday feature social delights, happiness (attraction) in love, optimism, entertainment and wish fulfilment! Thursday night through Saturday boost your energy and charisma. (Saturday might bring a further development to Sunday/Monday’s attraction.) This week subtly furthers your (fortunate) destiny in work, career, and ultimately, finances. Even your “down time,” Tuesday to Thursday eve, flows smoothly: rest, think. Remember, start nothing major before Sept. 12.

Gemini May 21-June 20: Delay all new starts – especially in domestic, realty, Mother Nature and security spheres – until Sept. 12. You’ll be tempted to “jump early” in those domestic, realty (etc.) areas, as they grow large for the next four weeks. Let events evolve: destiny is on your side, especially financially. Romance (or the lack thereof) remains a strong secondary note. Love’s opportunities exist right into mid-September. However, better now if it’s an old flame – perhaps from a former neighbourhood. Love and/or friendship are favoured Sunday/Monday and Thursday night to Saturday. Mid-week, be ambitious.

Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: A former job, career contact, parenting role, or status position might return now to Sept. 12. (“Destiny” aids here mid-week.) But don’t start brand new projects or relationships, especially in these areas. Instead, seize that past opportunity, or stick with ongoing ventures, while protecting them from delays, mistakes and misunderstood communications. Your social life remains happy, upbeat. A light, flirtatious romance could arrive (perhaps Thursday night through Saturday) – or better, an ongoing one thrives. (A brand new relationship will tend to stay light, not “grow.”)

August 22 - 28 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Start nothing new before Sept. 12. A former educational, publishing, cultural, love, international, legal or intellectual interest, project or situation might return. (Or you daydream about it/him/her.) Returning to the past can reward. If an old flame returns, a strong “career” or ambition streak is involved – e.g., he/she perhaps was once your boss, or a major client. Chase money Sunday (best) and Monday. Travel, communications mid-week – a turn of destiny could bring, aid, one of those educational, international, etc. things! Let things end Thursday night through Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A former investment, debt, secret, sexual, research, lifestyle, criminal/ police, diagnostic or health situation could reappear before Sept. 12. It’s generally favourable, could be a doorway to profit, satisfaction. But think before you leap. During the same interval, start nothing new, especially in these areas. You’re going be dealing with heavy themes, serious matters! Gentle, true love, intellectual growth, mental creativity, pleasurable travel and/or legal process – all continue. Your energy, charisma surge Sunday/Monday. (Someone has romance on the mind!) Chase money mid-week. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Avoid new starts before Sept. 12 – in projects and, especially, in relationships. You’ll have plenty to keep you busy with ongoing links – including one from the past. These might “reappear” after some absence: negotiations, litigation, a relocation, partnership or business opportunity, or even an enemy. Take everything in stride, be flexible, diplomatic. You might face a choice: To join or compete. Joining’s better, as your competition holds the aces right now. Lie low, rest, contemplate Sunday/Monday. Your charisma surges mid-week, triggering success! Money caution after Thursday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014

Legion show n’ shine success Vintage vehicles and hot rods filled the Aldergrove Legion parking lot on Saturday, for the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 265 Car Show. While the band Front Page played classic rock and pop tunes in front of the Legion, visitors perused the cornucopia of cars and trucks entered in the show and shine. “Awesome show,” event coordinator Rick Cline said, noting there were 106 entries, two more than the previous year. “Everybody that I spoke to really enjoyed the show. We also had different cars than previous years.” He added, “We would like to thank all our volunteers for helping make the show a success, as well as our sponsors and our participants.” Money raised from the show will go towards Aldergrove Legion Christmas hampers and a variety of other local causes such as school bursaries, cancer clinics, and hospitals. Next year’s show is scheduled for Aug. 13, 2011.

Walnut Grove’s own Ryan Thomas will be among dozens of racers burning up a track at the Abbotsford International Airport this weekend. The BC Supermoto Nationals are set for this weekend, with practices 4-8 p.m. on Saturday, qualifiers 9 a.m. to noon on Sunday, and racing from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. BC Supermoto has been growing for the past four years, and has been providing a place for motorcycle riders, racers, and enthusiasts to come together and let loose on a very challenging, tightly wound asphalt track that lets onto a dirt section, Thomas explained. Racers of all ages come from as far north as Williams Lake and Invermere, and as far south as Snohomish County to take part in this competition. Supermoto bikes are built from high performance motocross bikes and are converted with giant brakes, and ultra wide 17” wheels with racing slicks for incredibly fast cornering and acceleration. The riders will either wear full racing leathers or a hybrid of motocross and street protection. Supermoto tracks are a combination of 80 per cent asphalt and 20 per cent dirt, with jumps, berms and bikes drifting sideways on the pavement. The dirt section is comprised of five berms and three sets of jumps to keep the action high. Parking and admission are free at the northwest end of the Tradex parking lot. More information is available online at www.rpmsupermoto.com.
