Taken for granted

Questions have been raised about a provincial program that pumped more than $1.3 million into Langley. LocalMotion was a program that began in 2007, intended to put $40 million into making communities more friendly to pedestrians, cyclists, seniors, and people in wheelchairs. It was intended to get people out of cars and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Langley’s grants were received in 2008 and 2010, after the program began keeping proper records. The largest LocalMotion grant in Langley, at $1 million, is for the pedestrian overpass at 68th Avenue and 200th Street. • More online

Salmon bounty boosts Kwantlen economy

Langley’s Kwantlen First Nation is expected to reap an economic windfall from this year’s sockeye run. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

For the first time in years, a sockeye salmon run has caused a rush of fishing boats on the Fraser River. From Brae Island in Fort Langley, at least half a dozen boats were visible Wednesday and Thursday, as the largest sockeye salmon run since 1913 moved into the Lower Fraser. An estimated 25 million sockeye are now expected. “It’s an awesome, awesome summer,” said Les Antone, a Kwantlen First Nation band councillor. The commercial fishery began on Wednesday at noon and ended Thursday evening. On Friday, a trio of First Nations fisheries were to begin, and Langley’s Kwantlen were getting ready to take to the water. Every family on the reserve in Fort Langley is involved in the fishing, said Antone, and the boats are filled with everyone from children to elders.

“They’re in the same boat as us,” he said. For once, there are plenty of fish. Because the Kwantlen have signed a sales agreement with the federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans this year, a little more than half their catch this weekend may be sold commercially. The band already has a contract with a local processor. Antone noted that, with so many fish coming out of the river after such a long dry spell, local processors are stretched to the limit. So are the Kwantlen fishermen, he said. Everyone has been busy with the previous food fishery openings and with getting boats and nets ready. “We’ve increased our [Rub] A535 budget,” he joked, saying that everyone was sore and tired. However, it means a huge economic boon for the entire community. People are doing their back-to-school shopping for their children already, he said. They are also looking forward to a lot of salmon on the menu. Freezers will be full, and there will be quite a few barbecues in the days and weeks to come, Antone said.

“It’s an awesome, awesome summer.”

Between 20 and 30 boats have taken part in some brief, early food fishery openings, and now the biggest openings of the year are scheduled. “The community is buzzing,” Antone said. The sockeye run is in stark contrast to last year, when there was no commercial fishery and only a brief First Nations opening. In fact, the runs last year were so low that it was feared the fishery had collapsed completely. Antone’s brother is the last Kwantlen band member with a commercial fishing licence. In the 1960s and ’70s, Antone said, there were between 10 and 12 commercial licences held by Les Antone band members, but they were given up one by one through sales or buy-backs as the fishery dwindled. “They thought it was all over,” Antone said. The same situation has seen the overall number of commercial fishermen, native and non-native, dwindle from thousands to about 300 on the Fraser River. Although there has been some animosity in the past between First Nations and nonnative commercial fishermen, Antone said, there doesn’t seem to be any bad blood on the water this year.

Cascades Casino

New owners gamble

Langley City won’t notice any changes as the casino gets a new owner next month. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Gateway Casinos, including Langley’s Cascades Casino, will have new owners and $1 billion less debt, if a deal is approved next month. Catalyst Capital, a Toronto-based investment fund, will be taking over control of the firm if B.C. and Alberta gambling authorities give the final okay in mid-September. Catalyst was formerly one of the biggest lenders to Gateway, and it is essentially swapping debt for control of the company. Tennenbaum Capital, a California firm, will also be taking a larger stake in the chain of casinos, but it will not have control. As part of the restructuring, the former

owners will see their share reduced to two per cent of the company. Rick Orzy, a Toronto lawyer speaking for the new ownership group, said it will be a good news story for the firm. In addition to wiping $1 billion in debt off the books of Gateway, the new owners will inject $100 million US into the company. There are not expected to be job losses or major changes to the way the Cascades or other casinos are run, Orzy said. The company’s problems had to do with its load of debt, not with its actual casinos, he said. The newly restructured company will be much leaner, with about two thirds of its debt wiped off the books, said Orzy. Nor will the deal affect the agreement that sees an average of $6 million a year flow to Langley City coffers. “That [the contract] isn’t even directly with them, that’s with the BC Lottery Corporation,” City Mayor Peter Fassbender said.

Bridge trips pick up More drivers are using the connector. by Glenda Luymes Postmedia Network Inc.

One year after the Albion ferry last traversed the Fraser, traffic on the Golden Ears Bridge is slowly increasing. In July, an average of 25,700 vehicles crossed the bridge daily, up from 19,600 in July 2009, according to new TransLink figures. “We are really close to where we should be [in terms of traffic projections],” spokesman Ken Hardie said Wednesday. “Of course, more is always better, but the numbers are consistently heading up.” The lower-than-expected use of the tolled bridge means it will annually cost $4.8 million more to operate than originally estimated. But Hardie said the bridge traffic will likely continue to increase into the fall. Business owners in Fort Langley aren’t lamenting the ferry’s end. “The traffic is a lot slower now,” said Fort Langley BIA executive director Shirley Stewart. “It hasn’t changed business too much, except the customers are a little more diverse.”

This year’s Langley RCMP Junior Cadet Camp was a success on two fronts. First, the volunteer-run event introduced scores of 10- to 12-year-olds to the RCMP. Second, it has attracted some extra funding. The camp finished up earlier this month at Langley Secondary, where the participants met Mounties, learned to march, saw the ERT’s equipment, and learned about self-respect and safety consciousness, said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks. It has drawn financial support from two sources. A retired RCMP officer who is a grandparent of one of this year’s cadets was so impressed by the graduation ceremony that he donated $2,000 to the program. He plans to donate an additional

It wasn’t all policing at the Cadet Camp. Firefighters also dropped by (above) to show off their skills, while members of the Emergency Response Team (left) explained their role and their equipment. $1,000 per year as long as the camps keep operating in Langley, Marks said. The RCMP Foundation, a non-profit group that supports Mountie-led community projects, will present another cheque next week, for $2,000. The annual cadet camp moved to a larger facility this year, taking over LSS for several days. The day camps mix

normal fun summer activities such as using water guns and running relays (always with a policing theme) with learning about self defence, including yelling loudly. The children this year met police dogs and their handlers, and there was a special emphasis on taking pride in their uniform of a ball cap and tee shirt, Marks said.

Fish tale could have tragic end “There are fish in the river,” the watchers have proclaimed. Only a couple of decades ago, that would have been an unspeakably obvious statement. Who would even have thought to say it? One might as likely note that there are birds in the sky, or that there are leaves on the trees, or that there are cars on the roads. So poorly have we managed our natural resources that a statement as obvious as “there are fish in the river” has become no longer obvious at all. The 25 million sockeye entering the Fraser River on their way to the spawning beds have come as a remarkable surprise – and a remarkably pleasant one, at that. The past few years saw such a dramatic decline in sockeye numbers that, until this summer, there was much hand-wringing and gnashing of teeth over the fishery’s apparent collapse and the species’ imminent demise. It has come as a monumental surprise that, after the salmon run last year was so tenuous that the commercial fishery was never opened, this year’s run is the strongest since 1913. Not so surprising was the reaction to the surprisingly good news: joyous cries, from fishers to economists and anyone else who might make a buck off the unexpected bounty, calling for the capture and death of as many of those 25 million salmon as possibly can be managed. Perhaps next year we will all be surprised again when the watchers proclaim, “There are no fish in the river.” We must not lose sight of the fact that the millions of salmon waiting for a rainy day to speed them on their way up to their spawning beds are in no way a confirmation of humanity’s stewardship of the environment, but rather are a testament to Mother Nature’s ability to overcome – at least this time – the adversity that humanity has created. – B.G.

Environment

No exemption for water waste

Dear Editor, We live adjacent to Alice Brown Elementary School, and the sprinklers run regularly. When I spoke to the school board, the comment was that they were exempt from the sprinkling regulations. So what? Grass dies during the dormant summer season and replenishes itself in the fall. All the residents who do not water have brown lawns that return to green in the fall. I believe watering grass to be no more than a misuse of our resources. Conserving water at a crucial time in the season should apply to everyone. Community agencies should set the example, not be the exception.

The school operates parking lot lights year round, when the original plan was to illuminate the teachers’ parking area, for safety reasons, during the school year. From our vantage point, the times that teachers arrive and leave before daylight or after sundown, for an entire year, you could count on the fingers of both hands. One needs to question why someone cannot turn the switch off during summer – or is it because of budget restraints (tongue in cheek)? It is then no wonder that we see massive overruns in the budget process. There is no one home tending the store. Noel Kirkbride, Langley

Mufford overpass

Project not worth loss of farmland Dear Editor, Unfortunately I will be away, as many will be for the ALR public meeting on Aug. 30, regarding removal of lands for the Mufford Overpass and roadway infrastructure. I have written both Township council and the ALR in the past, regarding

my concern. The project has not been thought out well, and deserves reconsideration. To take the amount of land needed for this project is imprudent. The proper alignment is at Highway 10 and Glover Road in Langley City. Unfortunately, the needed

Odd Thoughts

Royal comments disturbing Dear Editor, I find columnist Bob Groeneveld’s opinion [Better ways to choose royalty, July 6 Odd Thoughts, Langley Advance] quite disturbing, to write the least. Her Majesty brings a sense of continuity to Canada and to its people. It is because of her that Canada, as well as the other countries in which she is also head of state, are without the kind of government corruption that you see in countries such as the United States. True, there is corruption in Canada, too, but nowhere near on the same scale as in the U.S. or other countries associated with its form of government. No one of a different religion can say they have ever been discriminated against because of Her Majesty being the head of state, either. The Catholics, as well as people from other religions, have been treated fairly in Canada. I should know, as I am a relative of the man who saw fit to that: your very first Prime Minister Macdonald. I wish Mr. Groeneveld would rethink his comments and way of thought on this manner. Mr. W. V. Coleman/Johnson, via email

additional land was sold. The vast majority of traffic is southbound, turning right onto Glover from 64th Avenue, then left on Highway 10 to go south. The new overpass design does not accommodate any of this traffic. Brookswood residents like myself, travelling home from Walnut Grove on 204th Street, will only have the option of continuing through Langley on 204th. At Grade Crescent one must choose going back over to 200th or 208th Street to continue the commute. Design/build proposals should be called for. There are many better options available. This design is worse than the 200th Street overpass arrangement. The project is not green – just the opposite. Farming interests have been totally ignored. It goes nowhere, as far as most commuters are concerned, and is therefore a waste of tax dollars at all levels. Valuable farmland should not be released for this illconceived project. Doug Jensen, Brookswood

Daddy, when can we go!

Justice

Women at risk need social support

Dear Editor, Splitting hairs on the issue of which level of government, which police force, and which individual or individuals are to blame leaves one only to believe that Robert Pickton, the supposed dullard butcher, outwitted us all. Women on the street were his target, and some women will continue to be at the mercy of such madmen until society embraces those women-at-risk whose support systems are riddled with gaps. All levels of government and all segments of society, including faith-based groups, First Nations activists, and passionate advocates, must immediately offer them time and space, understanding and education, food and shelter – now. We dare not wait for yet another Willy Pickton to masquerade as a regular guy. The victims’ families are worn and weary. They’ve lost their battles to bring back their friends, daughters, sisters, and mothers.

TODAY’S FLYERS... in the

It’s time for us to pick up their mantle and forge ahead into areas known only too well to the Ernie Creys of the world. Find the women at risk now. Make living an option. Make dying – by needle or by cleaver – part of a miserable and distant past. We must open welcoming doors to women drawn to the mean streets, and do what it takes – in terms of love, compassion, and real time, real money – to draw them back onto main street and the mainstream, where they can live good, productive lives. For this sea change to occur, we all need to confront our own personal fears, and change the way think about the seamy sides of B.C. These women and those who love them deserve no less.

A pair of Langley teens is being credited for helping nab a suspected armed bank robber. A 54-year-old Langley man is facing a battery of charges in connection with a series of heists at four Langley financial institutions during the past two weeks, Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks said Tuesday. The serial bandit is suspected in robberies that occurred on Aug. 11 and 18, and two separate heists on Friday, Aug. 20. “In each occurrence, an amount of cash was taken and a weapon was RCMP Cpl. produced Holly Marks during three of the robberies,” Marks explained. The final robbery occurred shortly before 2:30 p.m. on Friday at the TD Canada Trust on Willowbrook Drive. When the bandit left the bank, two “observant civilians” noticed what they described to police as a “suspicious” character, Marks said. “These two teenagers had the presence of mind to take note of the licence plate on the vehicle in which the suspect fled.” The plate number linked back to a residence in the 20700 block of 56th Ave. Armed with that information, police converged on an apartment in downtown Langley City later that same afternoon. “Mindful of the weapon used during the commission of some of the robberies, the Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team was called to assist,” Marks said. A suspect was arrested without incident by ERT members and turned over to Langley Mounties. Richard Lane Davis has been charged with three counts of robbery with a weapon, one count of robbery, one count of uttering a threat, and obstruction. He has been remanded in custody until he appears in Surrey Provincial Court again Tuesday, Aug. 31. “The charges laid in this investigation are the culmination of a true team effort. Virtually every unit at Langley RCMP detachment played a vital role in the day’s events,” Marks said. This story first appeared as breaking news at www.langleyadvance.com

Tilt-up construction is an awe-inspiring thing to me. My step-son Ryan is in the business, so I should be well versed on the topic, but it still surprises me to see a building go up – virtually overnight. I wanted to bring your attention to one such building that just popped up behind Staples and The Brick. Willowbrook Drive Investments Ltd. is spearheading the construction of a new strip mall. You might know this project better because it’s also the one facilitating

reconfiguration of 62nd Avenue, so it will now curve north to meet up with the current intersection of 200th Street and Willowbrook Drive. Anyway, on what was described as the “perfect day” weather-wise, the foundation was finally poured earlier this month for the 22,000-square-foot mall. With the footprint in place, and thanks to the advent of tilt-up, the skeleton of this development has since been erected – and literally it seemed to go up overnight. Of course, there’s still lots of work to do inside, to ready it for its future tenants, confirmed Brent Heed, the leasing agent for Willowbrook Drive Investments. Even getting it to the stage of possession, where occupants will then begin leasehold improvements, will likely be a month or two off, Heed predicted.

But he’s excited to see this project finally coming to fruition, noting it’s been in the making for a couple years now. And while phase one of the development is well underway, and the revised road should be opening soon, that won’t be the end of construction for Willowbrook Drive Investments. They’re also expected to add more retail space on the southwest side of the reconfigured roadway some time in the near future. While Heed couldn’t reveal to me who any of the planned tenants will be in this complex, he said it’s not going to be another power centre with fashion outlets and destination stores. This mall, he tells me, will be geared at services and products for local consumers.

Now having spoke earlier of my step-son Ryan, the carpenter, it provides me a perfect segue to news of another new business in Langley. Ryan and his lovely wife Gaby are about to make us proud grandparents for the first time, and maybe owners of Carters and Osh Kosh Bigosh heard the news. In fact, I’m convinced they knew when picking the site – strategically located across the street from our offices – that I was about to become a grandmother. For those who are not familiar, this is a bit of a high-end baby and kids clothing store that is notorious for its incredibly cute baby’s overalls. I’m sure that will be one of my first purchases.

Two Langley artists have joined forces on an unusual piece of art aimed at promoting Langley. Deborah Strong of Cat and Mouse Design partnered with Vivian Harder of Thunderfoot Studios were commissioned to paint a wall-sized mural inside the new Tourism Langley digs. In their first-ever collaboration, Strong and Harder were asked to create a map of Langley featuring a number of local points of interest, such as the Fort Langley National Historic Site, Greater Vancouver Zoo, vineyards, and equestrian facilities. The concept for the wall-sized map was first discussed last year, when Tourism Langley executive director Deborah Kulchiski was working out designs for the new visitors centre on the ground floor of the Langley Events Centre. “The map provides a visual, artistic interpretation of Langley, while showcasing the spectacular landscape, as well as the unique and diverse products that make up our community,” Kulchiski said. Already well used, it’s provided the tourism counsellors at the centre with a hands-on, fun tool for directing visitors and residents throughout the community. “One of the objectives of relocating the Langley visitor centre was to acquire ample space to enable the delivery of

Live theatre

The play is the thing for senior actors Two seniors performing groups invite the public to see them on stage. Story and photos by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

A

new play being staged by Langley seniors next week pokes fun at the snobbery and egos within the professional performing arts world. Langley’s Eleanor Ryan has penned The Last Act of Regina Marlow, a play within a play about a prima donna actor, the acquiesing director who must wrangle the assorted oddballs and egos within his theatre troupe, and the untimely death of the leading lady. Ryan said she wanted to show audiences the “backstage things that go on. “It’s funny the things that do go on, and do go wrong, when you’re putting on a play,” said the senior with a long history in the performing arts scene. So she created Regina Marlow, the haughty and occasionally sober star who alienates everyone in the cast and crew but is a star whose name will pull in an audience for the turgid drama A View from the Mirror. Regina ends up dead just before the show is set to open and The Last Act of Regina Marlow is about whether the star was killed by someone connected with the show, or whether she died related to something she learned about the Mirror and its script, written by one of the cast members. Within the cast of nine, Diane Gendron gets to sink her teeth into a role completely unlike herself – the unabashedly arrogant lush Regina Marlow. “It’s a lot of fun and you get to let loose,” Gendron said of playing Regina. Gendron grew up in Langley and has a history of performing. “I started singing at three in recitals,” she recalled. As well she enjoyed being in many school productions and community theatre before taking time off to raise a family before returning to community theatre. Beebe Fleming, Pat Caffery, Joe Tenta, Kate Major, Ron Savoy, Darlene Smith, Diane Giesbrecht and Joyce Douglas make up the diverse cast. As Ryan segued into seniors theatre, she took to writing plays because she wasn’t finding material with which she was satisfied. Ryan rejects the notion that all seniors characters have to be dottering fogies on the verge of dementia. “They don’t portray people over 55 the way that they are today,” she said. Pat Bird has taken on the task of whipping the Langley Players into shape for when they perform the show for the community (Sept. 1 and 2) and when they compete at the BC Senior Games in the one-act play theatre contest. Bird spent many years with the Langley Footlight Players, where she developed a love of the stage and found she wanted

(portrayed by Diane “I sort of learned without realizing I Gendron) gives her final was learning,” she said. performance, dying The Autumn Thespians under mysterious of Port Coquitlam will be circumstances. visiting Langley for the Sept. 1 and 2 shows, despite the friendly rivalry that exists between the two seniors theatre companies which compete annually at the BC Senior Games. “We’re always neck and neck,” Ryan quipped. PoCo’s production is Twin Oaks, a mystery/comedy written by director Phyllis Mohr. In it, the character Earl has summoned his four sisters to meet him on the plateau overlooking their family home. Because of their abbreviated formats, both plays will be staged each evening, separated by an intermission. Each evening features a social hour at 6 p.m. with the show at 7 p.m. Tickets ($10 apiece) includes intermission refreshments. They are available in advance at the Langley Seniors’ Resource Centre, 20605 51B Ave., which is where the shows take place next Wednesday and Thursday. The two theatrical companies than perform at the Senior Games Sept. 15-18 in the Comox Valley, representing the Fraser Valley Zone.

The cast of The Last Act of Regina Marlow are ready to take the stage.

loverdale’s Irene Reed is over-the-moon excited about her upcoming trip to Ontario. Not only will she be traversing the continent with her husband Bud, and their daughter Maria, but Reed is travelling all-expenses-paid for three days to compete in a national singing competition. Reed, 75, said music has been a part of her life since infancy. She first started accompanying her older brother when he played the accordian for family, took up piano lessons at age eight, then started voice lessons – with the same music teacher – in Grade 9. Since then, she’s continued singing, primarily at the Langley United Church, with periodic appearances as a soloist at two Vancouver churches. She’s even joined her piano accompanist from the competition, Joyce Thompson, at Highland and Langley Lodges. But admittedly, Reed said this was the first time in more than five decades she thought of entering a singing competition. Caroline Pors And given the results, she’s glad she did. Irene Reed As the regional winner of the Chartwell Seniors Housing Senior Star competition at Langley Gardens in June, her strong, clear soprano voice beat out 13 other local competitors to qualify for the semi-finals (which were judged only on a recording from the regionals). Recently, Reed learned that out of the 58 who made it to the semi-finals, she was one of 10 (and the only from Western Canada) picked to perform in Toronto this fall. Having never travelled further east (in Canada) than Winnipeg, the Edmonton-born singer hopes she can wow the judges and crowd at the historic Carlu concert hall with her English and Italian rendition of Come Back to Sorrento. That’s the same song that won her top spot at the regionals. “I’m looking forward to competing,” Reed said. “Apparently we’re going to have an orchestra playing for us.” • More online at www.langleyadvance.com, click on “Entertainment”

This is the 10th Langley International Festival. by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

T

he Langley International Festival promises to keep people busy with a jam-packed two days of celebrations at the Langley Events Centre and Willoughby Community Park. It all kicks off with the Kwantlen First Nations doing a welcoming ceremony at 11 a.m. on Saturday, followed by the parade of nations. People who want to take part in the festival’s parade of nations will want to make sure their outfits are looking their best. The festival invites people to wear the outfits of their ethnic heritage and take part in the parade. People who want to take part must contact Linda at 604-513-4445 to register. There will be entertainment on the main stage all day, through the weekend, with performances representing 25 countries including the Ukraine, Mexico, Kenya, Hawaii, Korea, Domincan Republic, Austria, Philipines, Brazil, Scotland, India, Argentina, Spain, Egypt, Sri Lanka, Sudan, and Russia. Any auto buffs out there will want to shine up that ride so it can be entered in the first show ’n’ shine at the festival. Entry is free and it takes place Sunday starting at 8:30 a.m. on the east side of LEC.

Photo contributed

Lucia, Queen of the Samba will perform. And pet owners will have prettied up Fido and Fifi for their chance to be famous. The festival teamed with Apex Animal Hospital on a photo contest. The entries will be displayed at the International Festival, and the public will vote on the winners, who will receive prizes. The entertainment includes the Queen of Samba (Brazil), the Svitanok Chorus, Ukranian Dulcimer Group and the Nova Khvylia. On Sunday at 3 p.m., the Wu Fu Elementary School Diabolo Team will offer a unique demonstration. The children juggle a diabolo (a wooden spool) on a string attached to two sticks while dancing and moving across the stage. Although this is considered a children’s folk game, the team has modified it to be a demonstration of agility and grace. The YouthZone runs Sunday, 7-9:30 p.m. and is hosted by Team Canada Paralympian Matt Hallat. It includes folk, Taiko, and Isreali dance, martial arts, and a teen talent portion.

A youth concert closes out the festival Sunday evening. The Langley Elks are overseeing a beer and wine garden at the festival. More than 20 international food vendors will be on site to give people tastes from around the globe. As well, more than 60 vendors have a marketplace of items from many nations. The Bard in the Valley theatre company will be at the festival offering up free performances of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at 7 p.m. on Saturday and at 2 p.m. on Sunday. The festival continues with its international soccer tournament, featuring 12 teams this year. The organizers have arranged for the Vancouver Trolley Bus Co. to pick people up by Colossus Cinema in Walnut Grove and the Langley Bus Depot in Langley City, transporting people to and from the festival for free. There are some serious events during the festival. The Romanian Orphans 20th anniversary since adoption reunion is being held Saturday, and features a documentary by California adoptee Alex King. As well Ramesh Ferris of Whitehorse, Yukon, is at the Disability Pavilion and will speak about polio, a continuing threat to many children in parts of Africa and Asia. Ferris who had polio as a baby, used a handcrank bicycle to cross Canada in 2008 to raise awareness and funds for polio. More detail about the festival is available at internationalfestival.ca.

hile most teenagers are spending the summer at the mall, poolside, or in a part-time job, Erin Mozel, 14, of South Langley spent four weeks at Canada’s National Ballet School in Toronto. Of the nearly 1,000 dancers who auditioned for the summer program, only 40 were accepted. And of those, only seven were chosen to return in September for a coveted position in the professional program – one of whom was Erin. “It was my first time going [to the summer program]. It was a big audition,” Erin said. “I thought it would be different, but it was better than I expected.” During the four-week course, Erin spent her time in technique, pointe, and pool conditioning classes, working with a number of teachers in various disciplines. “It was intense,” Erin said with a smile. “I learned to work with different people and different teachers.” The new environment was quite a change for Erin, who over the

Excited with the opportunities ahead for Erin, Lavrova told the Langley Advance, “It’s easier to go professional from where she’s heading. It’s difficult to see her leave, but good, as she will work with the best teachers in Canada.” Over the years the Lavrova and Erin have created a strong bond. Reflecting on her dance heroes Erin expressed, “Ms. Irina has inspired me. All my teachers have.” Going professional is what Erin aspires to do, hoping to start her dance career with the National Ballet of Canada. With her goal is sight, this straight-A student will spend 10hour days at Canada’s National Ballet School with half the time devoted to academic education and the other in dance training. Chris Mozel is overwhelmed his daughter is leaving home this soon. “It is not just me as a father saying she’s great – professionals agree. Erin should go, staying would be holding her back.” Determined to go, Erin does not show the apprehension of a teenager moving halfway across Andrew Harvey/Special to the Langley Advance the country, away from friends and family.

Arts in brief

T

he works of Langley artists Suzanne Northcott, Doris Auxier, and Jeff Warren will continue to be on display at the Evergreen Cultural Centre in Coquitlam until mid-September. This trio of local artists kicked off the exhibit last month, called Transformation and Memory: Endangered Spaces. In the public sphere, numerous groups, massive and miniscule, municipal and national, argue ardently for the protection of endangered spaces. But, looking past the polarized debate between these Suzanne Northcott’s Asylum II. groups and those who wish to destroy and redevelop spaces, this social environmental phenomenon and its manifestation present an often unexplored complexity. The question of what is inside these endangered ecological spaces, how society preserves them and the way their natural history relates to human history provides not only a way to explore these environments, but also a way to dissect and examine the concept of preservation, of protecting spaces, said Northcott. Transformation and Memory: Endangered Spaces is an open ended exploration of these concepts and of these spaces. In essence, the artists want to examine the history and substance of eco spaces while focusing on two particular sites: the Langley Bog and Colony Farm. All three artists are interested in the natural histories of these eco spaces which are rife with human contact. Colony Farm was cleared and run, in large part, by the patients of the Riverview Mental Health Facility and the Langley Bog was mined for peat moss between 1958 and 1980. With their own distinct style and practice, each artist investigates these protected sites.

Cookbooks up for grabs

A

philanthropic group of women who share a passion for food are raising funds for scholarships through the sale of cookbooks, and a team will be in Langley marketing their wares next week. The B.C. chapter of Les Dames d’Escoffier is a society of professional women who come together with the purpose of promoting the understanding, appreciation, and

knowledge of food, wine, hospitality, and nutrition. And it’s this group that is participating in Well Seasoned gourmet food store’s annual open house on Wednesday, Sept. 1, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. where they will sell from their collection of rare and unique cookbooks. Hundreds of cookbooks have been collected by Les Dames d’Escoffier, including special editions, publisher’s proofs, collector’s items, and celebrity chef books – some new and many “gently loved” – that will be for sale next week, with all proceeds to the scholarship fund. The event is being hosted by shop owner Angie Quaale, at her Well Seasoned store and cooking school, 20771 Langley Bypass.

Dancers storm Vegas

M

embers of a local dance school travelled to the entertainment capital of the world – namely Las Vegas, Nevada – last month to compete in a national dance competition, and scooped up an armful of awards. A group from All In One Dance Company – located on the Langley-Surrey border – impressed dancers, teachers, and judges alike and brought home a treasure trove of nine trophies from a national dance competition held last month in Las Vegas. The dancers, ranging in age from four to adult, had what studio owner Suzanne Balamatowski described as an “amazing dance experience” in the entertainment capital of the world. The judges apparently loved the Langley-Surrey group, saying how original the Canadians were, and commenting on how strong dance is “across the border,” said Balamatowski. “The whole experience was amazing… several dance companies at the competition would stop us and tell us how good our dancers performed and how original our choreography was,” said Aimee, one of Balamatowski’s daughters, and a partner in the business. “Our dancers are amazing,” added her other daughter and business partner Cherie Fauteux. “They lit up the stage in Las Vegas when they danced.” • More about this school’s accomplishments online at www. langleyadvance.com, click on “entertainment”

Dear Anne,

“My apple tree gets apples, but every year they get black marks on them, they don’t grow very big, and some of them split. Even the leaves end up with black marks and dry up and die. What can I do for next year’s crop?”

those varieties that do well in the Okanagan but find our climate too wet. Most garden centres sell scab-resistant apple trees, and many of them have delicious apples. ‘Liberty’ is one of the best. Others include ‘Freedom,’ ‘Jonafree,’ ‘Prima,’ and Goldrush.

Deb Losier, via email our apple tree has scab, a fungal disease that is more widespread after wet springs. It tends to be less severe if you spray in late winter with lime sulphur and dormant oil. However, the spray does kill some beneficial insects. Be sure to pick up all the leaves every fall, and dispose of them in the garbage or municipal compost – not your own compost. Municipal compost reaches very high temperatures which kill pathogens. Then mulch under the tree, so that fungal spores can’t splash up into the tree during rains. It would also help if you fertilized the tree every spring with compost or balanced organic fertilizer spread around the drip line (edge) of the tree. Apples increase in size if, in dry spells, you can water in around the drip line when fruit is forming. Some trees are very susceptible to scab – especially

Dear Anne,

“When is the right time to remove lavender flowers for maximum aroma? How is it done?”

Helen Hunt, via email or full fragrance, the flowers should be cut mid-morning, when they’ve been open several days and the fragrant oil has developed, but the flowers haven’t started dropping. For flower arrangements, the flower stems should be cut earlier – before they open. They should be gathered in small bunches, and tied and hung in a dry, airy place. If you leave the bunches for a while, you need to know that spiders love to spin webs among lavender and any other herbs hanging up to dry. For potpourri, spread the stems on trays somewhere dry, and when the flowers are very dry, strip them from the stems.

Stella Stanger, Vancouver t’s always best to shorten the new canes to a height that makes them easier to pick – usually a bit more than one and a half metres (four feet). Pruning is best done in fall or winter, when you can see exactly what you’re doing. Next year’s raspberries will be borne on side-stems of the shortened canes. Any weak, spindly canes can be pruned right out. They produce berries, usually smaller ones, but they also create extra cover and shade which can cause mildew problems if you’re forced to postpone picking for a day or so, due to rain. Raspberries will turn into a thicket all over any garden, if they’re not stopped. People with large lots sometimes deliberately surround their raspberry bed with lawn, so suckers get mowed down. Otherwise, keeping them under control takes a lot of digging.

Proper preparation pleases palate

A

staple in almost every home’s pantry is spaghetti or some form of pasta that makes its way to the dinner table regularly. Many of us take the time to focus on building the flavour and complexity of the accompanying sauce for our pasta of choice, but the pasta itself needs attention, as well. Much space could be dedicated to achieving palate-pleasing goals in pasta sauces, but let us not forget the substance of these dishes: the pasta noodle. Here we will unravel some myths and procedures in one of the simplest tasks in the kitchen – boiling water and cooking pasta. The dry pasta noodle undergoes transformations during the cooking process. Most obviously, cooked pasta is larger in volume and more flexible than dry, raw pasta, because of the absorption of water during the boiling. The cooking process of any food, however simple it seems, needs to be analyzed, because this is our chance of infusing flavour into the ingredients being cooked. Everyone has heard about salting water when boiling pasta, but few realize why. Some believe salt helps prevent the pasta from sticking, or keeps the water from boiling over – but it is to season the pasta and to increase flavour. Pasta on its own is bland, and adding bland pasta to a sauce you have perfected doesn’t help the finished dish. If the pasta is allowed to absorb salt water while boiling, instead of just water, your pasta dish will be seasoned from the inside out. Don’t add oil to your pasta water. It will affect your finished dish negatively. Oiled pasta water will help keep your pasta from

sticking together, but the film of oil that will be left on the drained noodles will also prevent your sauce from sticking to them. You want the starchiness of the pasta to hold onto the sauce as much as possible, so that the dish can be enjoyed to the fullest. Drained cooked pasta should not be oiled for the same reason. A better way to help prevent your pasta noodles from sticking together while cooking is to stir the noodles constantly for the first two minutes of cooking time. By then, the water will have returned to its full-boil action, and the agitation of the bubbling water will keep the pasta moving and prevent it from sticking. Do not rinse pasta after it’s drained. Rinsing will cool it, and will also wash away some of that starchiness that we want to help secure the sauce to the noodles. Homemade “spaghetti” is a common dish in many households, and whether you use spaghetti, linguine, or other types of noodles, I hope these few simple recommendations help to make your meal more enjoyable and flavourful.

Blaze set to swing into 2010 fall ball season Eagles visit Chiefs

Shorter days and falling leaves can only mean one thing – baseball season.

Langley Chiefs fans will get their first look at the junior A squad this weekend. The Chiefs host the Surrey Eagles in a British Columbia Hockey League pre-season game on Saturday, starting at 7 p.m. at the Langley Events Centre. It is the second game of a home-and-home series between the Chiefs and Eagles. The two teams meet tonight (Friday) at South Surrey Arena with a 7 p.m. opening faceoff. The Chiefs return to the LEC ice this Tuesday, Aug. 31, when they host the Coquitlam Express in their third pre-season game of the campaign. Once again, game time is 7 p.m. Tickets for both of the Chiefs’ upcoming exhibition games are $5 apiece and can be had at the box office on game nights, or online at www.langleytickets. com.

The Langley Blaze are getting ready to play ball in the fall. The Blaze’s fall ball program – for baseball players aged 13 to 18 years – utilizes eight coaches with practices, instruction from ex-college and professional players, and about 24 games including two tournaments. The season starts near the end of this month and runs until midOctober. The team then heads indoors to the Blaze’s winter facility to refine skills and work with trainers on physical conditioning. The Blaze have had 26 of their players drafted by Major League Baseball (MLB) teams over the past nine years, including three first-round picks in the last four years. The club starts the season each year with an ambitious spring training schedule, playing eight professional teams made up of rookie and “A” ball players and six games versus U.S. college teams in front of numerous scouts, all on major league fields in Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona. The Blaze’s annual Los Angeles trip has the team playing at the $30-million MLB facility, as well as at such famous universities such as Cal State and Pepperdine. Players from Langley, Aldergrove, Cloverdale, and Maple Ridge are welcome to play fall ball. Those outside this area will need a release from their respective premier-level team.

Shone ninth in Singapore

Isiah Bryant of the North Surrey (bantam) Panthers looked for an opening as he faced a swarm of North Langley Bears tacklers including (left to right) Evan York, Hunter Favel, and Mook Kim during the Clover Bowl tournament last weekend in Cloverdale. The game had to be stopped due to a serious injury to a North Surrey player. Entering the final round in a nine-way tie for first after a clean ride in the first round, Shone and her horse Roxy Girl hit two barriers, counting eight penalty points. “I felt good going into the last round – definitely had a chance for gold,” Shone said. The Games began Aug. 14 and wrapped up Thursday.

Training for the program will begin in September with the first CSA scouting visit scheduled to take place Sept. 27-30 at Burnaby Lake West.

Spartans, Canada lose in final

When the volleyball historians look upon the 2010 NORCECA junior men’s championships in Gatineau, Que., a silver medal for Canada will seem like a pretty impressive achievement. It just may feel a little bitter right now for the red and white to swallow second place. Canada’s national junior team – featuring Trinity Western University Spartans Lucas Van Berkel (who led Canada with two blocks in the final), and Braden Schmidt – were swept in three sets by the U.S. in the gold medal game on Tuesday. But this year’s maple-leafed ones will likely be remembered for their stunning upset of Cuba in the semifinal.

was the first time she heard her talking about next year.’ It gives her something to look forward to,” Thompson related. The kayaking program is for disabled or disadvantaged people living with physical, cognitive, or behavioural challenges. The canoes and kayaks are adapted to compensate for any function the paddler has lost due to disability. Thompson, said the program, with clients as young as three, is starting to gain momentum. “We’re definitely getting to more people,” she said, adding, “I would say this year we have to be more creative with the equipment because the disabilities are more severe.” The popularity of the program is born from its therapeutic benefits, said Thompson, a certified instructor through Paddle Canada: “It’s a

Alex Thompson has a story to tell. She calls it “the highlight of my summer.” Her tale is one of hope for a 14year-old girl who is quadriplegic. “Two weeks before she came, she was in the hospital, having a surgery,” explained Thompson who – through the Evergreen Adventure Society and Power For All – runs an adaptive kayaking program out of Brae Island Regional Park in Fort Langley. The girl’s quadriplegia had damaged her organs and affected her lungs, leaving her in a very weak state. Thompson said the program made a significant impact on the teen. “Two weeks after the surgery she came here, and we took her out,” Thompson said. “We had towels to make ‘doughnuts’ and pool noodles to support her neck and upper body, because we were trying to support her on the front seat [of the kayak]. She loved it. She had never done this in her life and she never thought that she could do it.” After about an hour on the Fraser River, the girl found a new passion. “She was so excited, that her nurse came to me and said ‘You know, after we went paddling, it

unique medium for them to feel. First of all, just the fresh air and being outside. For someone who is quadriplegic or struggling with a mental illness, feeling the water and having that sense of mastery of something, it’s a really a good booster for self esteem.” Clients are often paired with a volunteer kayak buddy on two-person boats. “Sometimes, if clients want to go on a single kayak we use as much adaptive equipment as necessary to make the boat stable and safe for the client and his or her abilities,” Thompson added. There is still room for more clients to climb aboard, especially on Saturdays. The program ends Sept. 25. Anyone interested in the program can call 778-885-7953 or email powerforall@evergreenadventure.ca.

Health care jobs on the rise Canada is on the cusp of a major change. The first wave of our country’s aging baby boomers is about to turn 65. With this milestone birthday comes retirement, of course, along with a host of challenges that will dramatically transform the country. Most significantly, mass retirement will have a striking impact upon employment and health care in Canada. As Canadians enter their golden years, they will be turning to the medical community to keep them healthy. In fact, over the next twenty five years, the passage of about 10 million boomers into retirement will present both major challenges and opportunities for our country’s medical system. From dental work to x-rays to in-home support, these new Canadian seniors will be creating a significant demand for health care across the board.

field have “a relatively easy time finding permanent employment in targeted occupations with relatively high pay or attractive labour market conditions.” Of the forty or so occupations listed as “Good” prospects for 2010, over half are in the health care industry. As the country prepares for the upcoming 25 years of boomer retirement and its accompanying need for increased health care, this number can only be expected to rise-good news for current and potential health care workers. So what are some of the careers that stand to prosper from this mass retirement? We’ll take a look at three of these rising-star careers to learn more about the nature of the work, the education required and what one can expect to earn while contributing to this booming field.

To Eligible Students

PHARMACY ASSISTANT Pharmacy assistants assist pharmacists by preparing, packaging and labeling pharmaceutical products. They also verify prescriptions, maintain patient records and monitor inventories of medications and pharmaceutical products. Pharmacy assistants require completion of secondary school and a college program in Pharmacy Assistant or Pharmacy Technician training. Once completed, a Pharmacy Assistant can expect to earn an hourly wage of about $14.51. NURSE (NURSE AIDE) Nurse Aides attend to the needs of patients in hospitals, nursing homes and other health care facilities. They may be involved in answering call signals, serving meals, take patient’s blood pressure, collect fluid specimens, maintain inventory of supplies and perform maintenance tasks such as cleaning and sterilizing equipment. A Nurse Aide usually requires a college program with practical, on-the-job training. Once graduated, a Nurse Aide can expect to earn about $14.77 per hour. The next few years will bring many changes with them. For those Canadians thinking about jobs and what education or training they need for a prosperous future, it’s important to consider the effects of phenomena like the baby boomers. A growing and aging population that requires more health services coupled with new vacancies in these fields present a positive outlook for health care jobs. The three fields highlighted here give an idea of solid directions for students considering a new career in Canada but they are just a selection of the many opportunities that will be opening over the next few years. This period may be the end of work for some but it can be the beginning of a long and happy career for others. Editorial provided by Postmedia Network Inc.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Tackle those piles of work. It’s nit-picky, detailed work, and all the details are rife with mistakes, camouflaged instructions, missing pieces. But you gotta do it – so march ahead. Important relationships – friends, enemies, lovers, partners, competitors, counsellors – remain unusually favourable. You might give or receive attention. One who is attracted, or attracts, is a “door” to worldly success. (E.g., that sexy person might also bring career luck.) Better if you met some time ago. Start nothing major before Sept. 12. Chase money Sunday/Monday. Be home Friday/Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Romance wafts happily on the breeze! An old flame could grow hotter, especially if a co-worker is involved. Beauty, pleasure and a nice winning streak accompany you. A former recreational or creative venture might return. There’s still plenty of work to do, though. One chore, which might involve education, travel, cultural or media work, will take about two more years to complete. Your energy and charisma soar Sunday to Tuesday – tackle things that usually intimidate you, and see how easily you achieve! Money’s lucky Thursday. Be a friend Friday/Saturday. Career intuition is accurate. Gemini May 21-June 20: The weeks ahead accent your domestic situation, kids, security, real estate, gardening, nutrition and “the end of matters.” Usually this is a good time to decide who and what belongs in your life, and who/what should be left behind. But make no big decisions (in any of the areas listed) before Sept. 12. Your romantic prospects remain high, but attraction might compete with a natural physical lethargy – or, romance and co-habitation make a natural “pair.” You’re weary but lucky Sunday/Monday. Your charisma’s obvious midweek. You’re discovering love’s “other benefits.”

Notice of Disposition

Ms Ann Buchan previously of 26258 60th Avenue, Langley, BC is to take notice that property she abandoned will be disposed of by Doug Olson of 26258 60th Avenue, Langley, BC unless Ms Buchan takes possession of the property, establishes a right to possession of it or makes an application to the court to establish such a right within 30 days from Aug 27, 2010. The abandoned property includes Mercalli Downhill Bicycle, Small Freezer, Old Computer with monitor and printer, Kenmore Vacuum Cleaner, Ikea Shelving Unit and other miscellaneous items.

REAL ESTATE

Cancer June 21-July 22: Communications, travel, paperwork, details, errands, casual acquaintances and “daily business” are accented now—and all are delayed or prone to mistakes. Check addresses on mail, figures on cheques, etc. Don’t start anything important before Sept. 12, particularly in these zones. (E.g., avoid a new advertising “mail out.”) You might hear long-lost news, receive a “lost letter,” hear from an old friend, etc. Your home remains sweet’n’sour, but ends “inspired.” Optimism, popularity and social joys bless you Sunday to Tuesday! Lie low mid-week. Your energy, charisma return Friday/Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your money (and career) luck rises, but more from past efforts, contacts, than new ones. Don’t launch any ventures before Sept. 12, especially in money areas. If you absolutely need a job, seek and land it (Sunday to Tuesday are good for this) – but realize that you will want to, will benefit, if you seek a new one within a year. (You’re headed for great career luck June 2011-June 2012, but that’s then.) Mid-week brings happiness, good friends, popularity, flirtations – with a Gemini? But retreat, lie low and contemplate (don’t plan) Friday/ Saturday. The best partner is a friend. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness reach a yearly high – but that effectiveness is confined to ongoing and “returning” projects (and people – a former attraction might be rekindled). Beware starting important new things before Sept. 12. Intellectual, far travel, educational, publishing, religious or cultural affairs flow very well Sunday to Tuesday afternoon. Love is gentle, wide. Your career and relations with higher-ups (including parents, police) are emphasized mid-week.All’s well, but don’t act unpredictably Thursday night.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Start nothing new before Sept. 12. Secrets, mysteries, financial plums, intimate clinches, subconscious desires surfacing – these fill Sunday through Tuesday. (Best Sunday, Monday morning.) Work in the background all week, especially these three days – a government agency, institution, large corporation or charitable organization could be your ally. Wisdom, a mellow mood, and matters of law, culture, education, thought, love and “meaning” arise mid-week – with misunderstandings Wednesday, sweet understandings Thursday. Don’t push anyone Friday/Saturday. All week, conserve energy. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Wishes can come true this week and next – especially former wishes, events you wanted to occur in the past, then gave up on. (E.g., a sweet or flirtatious friend returning.) (You might be tempted by a clandestine romance August and September.) Remember, start nothing new – projects nor important links – before Sept. 12. Relationships fill Sunday to Tuesday – open, exciting, sometimes challenging relationships. Be diplomatic, eager to join. Sex, secrets, intimate commitments, “big” finances arise mid-week. (All’s well.) Avoid ethical, educational, publishing commitments late week. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Delay major initiatives until Sept. 12. Stick with the old or ongoing – and protect these from mistakes and “no shows,” especially in business and career zones. This is a fairly easy, mellow week. You’ll have to work hard – your performance is being watched. But friends, light flirtations, entertainment and happy hopes lighten every day! Tackle work Sunday to Tuesday – success awaits. Relationships, opportunities and challenges fill Tuesday eve to Thursday. Be open, honest, receptive: love’s “around.” Careful with finances, sex, commitments (no pregnancies!) Friday/Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Sweet, mellow thoughts, solutions, dreams, revisions float through your head – but if you actually sit down to write them out, you’ll discover they were “gossamer on the breeze” – insubstantial, impractical, even nonsensical. This gossamer is the “chatter” as your lower mind sorts out the past two years. The true results are substantial and beneficial – and sub-conscious. Do events since 2008 seem grim? No worries: you are coming into your power. Your career efforts need pruning: encourage growth by ending/clipping some involvements. Early week, love, pleasure. Mid: work. Late: caution. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Secrets, mysteries, dreams, subconscious desires (and fears) research, diagnosis, health, investments, debts, large finances, lifestyle choices, commitments, sexual intimacy – these are emphasized, and in all, mistakes run rife. However, these are also mines filled with rich veins running through the past – there might be an old investment, a former intimate partner, an old piece of research that holds deep benefits for you! (Most likely to appear Sunday to Tuesday.) But make NO new investments (etc.) before Sept. 12. Romance calls mid-week. Careful with health, chores Friday/Saturday. Pisces Feb.19-March20:Thepastisalive;thepresent, as if scared, dithers around, circling uncertainties. So deal with the past – former agreements, opportunities, negotiations, relationships. These yield benefits. Every relationship holds something in its hands: money, love, sex, commitment, the future: especially now. The deeper you plunge, the more you will find, most of it gratifying. You could get hooked on someone, August September! Sunday to Tuesday accent travel, communications. Mid-week draws you toward home, foundations. Friday/Saturday bring romantic, pleasure urges: be honest, cautious. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
