The group is also citing the cost of a by-election as another reason why there should be an appointed trustee – one possibility described under the School Act – and the recent sudden resignation of school board chair Joan Bech. The latest controversy will interfere with the district carrying out the recommendations from the Auditor General’s report. That report released earlier this month cites board dysfunction as a key reason why the district is having problems. The district is grappling with a $13.5-million combined debt and deficit and will be making more than $3 million cuts each of the next four years to balance the books.

The first rule of the Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley is simple: no whining. I learned that rule the day of our first meeting, more than six months ago. Rule two was handed down by Wayne Norris, Crown prosecutor, motorcyclist, and Abbotsford Police special constable. “Never pass on the left,” Norris told us. Wednesday, the night before we left for our 800kilometre fundraising ride in support of pediatric cancer patients, Norris gave the bike riders the rundown of how we’ll be kept safe on the roads. The members of the Integrated Rider Escort Team will scout ahead to watch out for traffic, and keep us riders – known as “the package” – safe in the middle and away from, for example, giant trucks that could grind us into goo under their wheels. Norris told us what we need to do to keep ourselves and the motorcyclists safe at all times. In exchange for us being good cyclists, we get to own the road on tour. Norris’s speech was part of our introduction to the vast array of support crew volunteers who will shepherd us from place to place, starting in Delta. Some of them I already know, like Steve Andronyk, who is a past rider and once set a punishing 40 km/h pace when he joined us for a “practise” ride a few months back. There’s Craig Van Herk, who arrived in Delta with a shiny head, fresh from being shaved at a fundraiser at Aldergrove Community Secondary School.

Fraser Highway’s widening will have to wait until 2011 in Langley Township. by Matthew Claxton

All the construction activity along Fraser Highway does not mean motorists will see four lanes east of Langley City. At least, not yet. “What we’re doing right now is the soil pre-loading,” said Paul Cordeiro, roads manager for Langley Township. The land to either side of Fraser, between the borders of Langley City and 216th Street, are being loaded up with dirt and gravel. Once the loading is finished, everything will have to sit for about six months to settle, Cordeiro said. It won’t be until the summer of 2011 that the segment of highway is widened to four paved lanes. The entire project is expected to cost about $4.5 million. It has been in the planning stages at Langley Township for several years. The work dovetails in with the Nicomekl Bridge replacement

Fire linked to U.S. Police became suspicious when the owner of a burned truck gave a fake name. by Matthew Claxton

A truck fire led to the arrest of a man wanted in the United States, Langley RCMP say. A column of black smoke rose above the 24000 block of Robertson Crescent at about 6 p.m. Tuesday, and Langley Township firefighters rushed to extinguish the blaze. A five-ton flatdeck truck was consumed by flames, causing several large bangs as tires exploded in the heat, said assistant fire chief Bruce Ferguson. The fire is considered suspicious. As the fire was being put out and cleaned up, police spoke to the truck’s owner. However, it quickly emerged that the man had given police a false name. He is in fact wanted in the U.S. for a felony investigation, although police cannot release information on the exact charge. The man will be turned over to Canadian Immigration officials and could be deported to the U.S.

Activities highlight water issues Streams and groundwater will be the focus of this year’s downright damp WaterWeeks events. There will be water, water everywhere and exciting things to learn during this year’s annual WaterWeeks celebration, and the public is invited to come out and show appreciation for the resource that means so much to people, animals, and the planet. WaterWeeks will be hosted by the Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS) and the Township of Langley from Sept. 26 to Oct. 16. The week kicks off with the BC Rivers Day Community Festival on Sunday, Sept. 26. From 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., a free, family event will be held at Williams Park, at 6595 238 St, featuring 30 interactive displays and activity booths, an on-site concession, and live musical entertainment. People can participate in solar robot races, plant a tree, and watch puppets, performers, and the amazing Public Dreams Society stiltwalkers. A locally sourced barbecue lunch will be available by donation, courtesy of the Nicomekl and Salmon River Enhancement Societies. The Salmon River group is going to be spotlighting a major invasive plant problem. Lamiastrum (or yellow archangel) and ivy, plants sold through garden centres, are getting loose and killing native vegetation. Doug McFee, with the society, said people have been working to eradicate the plants but the problem is ongoing. His group has been working extensively around the Tall Timbers area. During the rest of WaterWeeks, a series of environmental activities will be presented by local community groups to teach residents about the Township of Langley’s groundwater, watersheds, watercourses, air quality, and wildlife habitats.

“Now with the resignation of board chair Joan Bech, DPAC executive has lost all trust in the ability of the board to continue the task of executing the recommendations of the AG,” she said. Dykeman-Porohowski added that the DPAC figures that the appointed trustee would do a better job and would hopefully listen to this community. “The hope would be that the official trustee’s position would be to listen to the people,” she noted. On Sunday, DPAC executive met for about five hours when the decision was made to hold the vote. “We plan to do what the parents of Langley want us to do,” she said. Each PAC has one vote and parents can make their opinions known to the PAC of their child’s school. DPAC has also said parents can go to or email for information or with questions. The vote will be at 7 p.m. on Sept. 29, the first DPAC meeting this school year. Tracy Wright, the DPAC first vice-president, explained that the decision was to hold the vote Sept. 29 because once a chief electoral officer is appointed, it will

be harder to stop the by-election process. The by-election will cost an estimated $50,000-$75,000. “That money would be better in our classes and on our kids,” Wright said. Langley Teachers’ Association president Susan Fonseca and CUPE Local 1260 president Donna Mason were at the press conference. Both have been involved with the district for many years and have never seen a DPAC take such action. Fonseca said parents’ frustration seems to have been building as the district goes through one problem after another and has a significant turnover of senior staff, particularly in the finance department. “People totally lack confidence in the leadership at the top of this district,” she said. Later the LTA issued a statement saying that while it agrees that the board is dysfunctional, it disagrees with an appointed trustee. Though costly, a by-election is the preferred way to go because it’s part of the democratic process. “I’ve never seen the DPACs take such a strong stand for their children,” said Mason after the press conference. “Parents are going to have to take a really good hard look at this.”

Light trains can carry South of the Fraser commuters, a new consultant’s report suggests. by Christina Toth and Heather Colpitts

Postmedia Network Inc.

One hundred years after the Interurban rail wound its way across the Fraser Valley, light rail proponents in Langley and beyond are optimistic the passenger service can make a comeback, after the release of a feasibility study on Monday. Rail service could be re-established on about 100 kilometres of the existing BC Hydro-owned line for $500 million, with the main train depot located in Abbotsford, says a report commissioned by the Rail for the Valley group. “We’re tremendously excited. This is the most comprehensive light rail study ever undertaken in this province, performed by an outfit with expertise in light rail solutions,” said John Buker, a founder of RFTV and a study coordinator. “This is an independent analysis by a respected company based in Great Britain that has a very solid track record in rail planning, including work on, among other things the Channel Tunnel. This report will, at long last, provide us with an honest accounting of the potential for passenger rail service on the Interurban corridor. This is something that has been sorely lacking in all provincial government-commissioned studies to date,” he said. The track is currently owned by BC Hydro, and is used for freight by Southern Railway. Joe Zacharias, co-founder of South Fraser OnTrax rail advocacy group, said the report isn’t comprehensive. But it’s good to see more expert analysis of Fraser Valley transit needs, the Langley resident commented. “I think other experts could add to this body of work,” he said. Langley Township Councillor Jordan Bateman, an advocate of better transit for communities South of the Fraser, said he’s pleased to have another assessment that shows the viability of passenger rail. “Anything that advances the cause of light rail South of the Fraser is a good thing,” he said. The author, David Cockle of Leewood Projects of England, reviewed the potential for an affordable and sustainable public light rail service on the existing and publicly owned Interurban rail corridor, which runs 98 kilometres from Surrey to Chilliwack, passing through Langley City and Township. He proposes two options, one diesel and one electric, plus future links to Richmond, Burnaby, Vancouver and east of Chilliwack. The report projects capital costs for the

diesel/hybrid option for the ChilliwackScott Road line at $500 million, or $5 million per kilometre, and $606 million for an electric option, or $6.2 per km. There would be 10 stops along this corridor. The report proposes three trains per hour on the route during commuter peak times on week days, twice an hour during non-peak times and weekends. Riders could use a microchip smart card that could be prepaid and reloaded for any combination of ride tickets. Costs to the rider would have to be comparable or cheaper than current bus fares or driving, the author writes. Travel times are estimated to be 90 minutes from Chilliwack to the Scott Road SkyTrain Station, 45 minutes from Abbotsford to Surrey, and two hours to downtown Vancouver. The trip from Knight Road in Sardis to Abbotsford would be under 30 minutes, and from Chilliwack to Yarrow, 13.5 minutes. The track would have to be upgraded to accommodate passenger trains travelling at 80 to 100 kilometres per hour, and switches, spur lines, controls, stations and other infrastructure would have to be considered. Another potential hitch is that the stretch of tracks in Langley is heavily used by freight trains heading “Anything to and from the Deltaport shipping that terminal. advances The first the Interurban line was a forward-lookcause… ing project. It was is a good opened with much thing.” pomp on Oct. 3, 1910, in anticipaJordan Bateman tion of the thousands who would eventually live in New Westminster and Vancouver, and the many others who would settle in the Fraser Valley and grow food and harvest the timber for the urban dwellers. Cockle’s report includes a quote from 1910 news story on the event, in which a one rural representative said, “you need us and we need you and this line is going to be the connecting link which will bring us together for our mutual advantage.” The line closed in 1950 when upkeep became costly and more residents increasingly used their own vehicles to get around. The Rail for the Valley group has waited for a $400,000 provincial study on light rail since 2008, when it was announced, but its scope didn’t include Vancouver, Surrey and Langley. The group concluded that it was doubtful the provincial report will shed much light on the true potential for a light rail service, said Buker. “Hence our commissioning of the independent analysis by a company with expertise in light rail,” he said.

Gunning for opportunities Sanity prevailed in Ottawa, although just barely. Parliamentarians voted 153-151 against scrapping the national gun registry. A handful of Canadians will be angry. A few more will be upset. Quite a few will be dissatisfied. At the other end of the spectrum, police officers who put their lives on the line every time they go into a domestic dispute situation will be pleased that they will have just a little more information at hand to help them through a day like that. Those who campaign for an end to violence against women will be thrilled. But most Canadians will hardly notice. They will just be happy to see some real issues tackled instead. Those who lost their jobs in the economic downturn and are still looking for new ones might take heart that, with the long gun registry matter set aside, their representatives in Ottawa will have time to consider their problems – maybe find ways to further stimulate employment, or perhaps think about the fact that Employment Insurance benefits are starting to run out. Those whose livelihoods and thoughts about Canada’s future are tied to the north will feel a bit better that MPs will be able to turn their thoughts towards the changing realities of Arctic sovereignty as climate change erodes ice caps and opens shipping channels. Those who have loved ones in Afghanistan, or who care about the men and women serving there, will take strength from their federal representatives’ renewed opportunities to debate, justify, or rethink Canada’s commitments. Or maybe, with the long gun registry issue at rest, parliamentarians can put some thought to how the courts deal with criminals who use guns – registered or not. Now our MPs have the time to do something constructive. – B.G.

Long-gun registry

Database needs better data

Dear Editor, With all the fur and feathers flying over the long-gun registry, it would certainly be nice to have all the facts, not just the political slant by one party or another. (Here goes that representative government thing again!) As usual, the political animals deal with the optics of issues, not the reality of them. Public statements by both the pros and the cons skirt around actual figures, and the waters are muddy. The idea for the long-gun registry came out of the 1989 killing of 14 women by Marc Lepine at Ecole Polytechnique. Canadians demanded the government do something, and rather than stepping up to enforce existing laws to violent crimes, the government created a database. The revolving door of the justice system continues: people accused of crimes using a weapon of any sort are quickly out on bail pending trial, given short sentences, and released early on good behaviour.

Where’s the substance of violent crime prevention? In a database? Since 1989, how many violent crimes have taken place with registered long guns, and how many with non-registered long guns? How does that stack up against violent crimes using other weapons? The political animal is not in the business of education, but rather perceptions. Brian G. Wood, Langley

Enthusiasm misplaced

Dear Editor, Prime Minister Stephen Harper last week vowed the Conservative party will not “rest” until the day it abolishes the longgun registry. I just wish Conservative MPs would take this enthusiastic and dedicated approach to other issues.

Township council censure

Mayor fuels generation’s cynicism

Letter notes clarified

Dear Editor, A point of clarification needs to be made regarding Coun. Charlie Fox’s recent letter to the editor concerning an anonymous letter

addressed to me at The Province newspaper [Mayor still short on facts, Sept. 21 Letters, Langley Advance]. It was the anonymous letter made public by Mayor Rick Green last week during a press conference, regarding his censure by council. Coun. Fox stated that I told him I never received the letter. There must have been some misunderstanding. That letter was indeed sent to me, or one that was very similar. I can’t be sure, because I don’t have the letter any more. The material in it was not pursued by our paper. Kent Spencer, reporter, The Province newspaper

RCMP allowed to run out of control

Dear Editor, I can’t seem to read the news anymore without something about the RCMP. Almost daily, there’s a news article about how they continue to abuse their position. Or how much all the suspended Mounties are being paid. Enough already. They are out of control. They’re virtually immune from prosecution, live by their own rules, and investigate themselves when they kill people. It’s time we got a regional police force, hopefully better trained and with more integrity. Michael Belway, Langley

The only ethical thing for this board of education to do is request to be removed. The representation that the people have right now is afflicted with a general “lack of” in more areas than those mentioned in the Auditor General’s report.

Biggs flies a ‘unique’ sales method What’s in


Roxanne Hooper

This is a new one for me. I received an email from a Langley business woman this week with an offer of a $5,000 commission to anyone who finds “the” buyer for her store. Victoria Biggs, who operates Uniquely Green Home Decor on Fraser Highway, sent out a notice Wednesday. “As you know, I am retiring after running the store for the past 10 years, so I will be selling the business before midDecember, or I will be closing it down,” she said. “I have loved owning it, meeting everyone, and becoming who I am along the way,” she commented on her tenure in what she dubs a $60,000 “eco-logical store” with $65,000 worth of inventory and 7,500 customers. “It has been such a gift, and now it is time to pass it on,” Bigg said. “So if you know of someone who wants their own business, or is interested in buying it, let us know” at Of course, her offer is only valid upon completion of the sale. This technique may not be new, but I haven’t heard it tried in Langley before. I give Biggs kudos for creative marketing, and wish her well in retirement.

Flying Witch arrives

As promised, I was going to let you know when The Flying Witch Halloween store opened. Well, it’s not only open, but already swarmed with ghoul-lovers. The traffic in

and out of the Langley Bypass store (near 200th Street, in front of Princess Auto) is freakish. Not many other new businesses draw that kind of attention the second they open the doors. The crowds might have something to do with the animated and haunting characters, the plethora of costumes, or a wide range of decorations and accessories. If you are among the Halloween-lovers who have not yet checked out this new store, consider dropping in this weekend for a peek. Wynne Gorman, a Langley resident who owns The Party Bazaar, and her gaggle of goblins and spooks, are hosting an open house on Saturday. The Flying Witch is new. Taking over a 5,000-square-foot retail space, Gorman has packed it with everything Halloween.

On Saturday’s agenda

Langley’s own Kristi Ferguson has joined forces with Danielle Knowles to host a new trade show that will be raising money for the Canadian Cancer Society. Fresh! Fraser Valley is being held at the Ramada Plaza in Abbotsford this weekend, featuring about 50 regional businesses – including Langley City’s Frosting Cupcakery and Fort Langley’s Into Chocolate. The Saturday, Sept. 25, event will include exhibits and 13 workshops aimed at entrepreneurs. “Fresh! was born out of our desire to celebrate local ventures, bring the business community together, and encourage people to shop locally,” Ferguson said. The idea is to get a Fresh! prespective on life and business in the Fraser Valley by attending this event. Admission is by donation to CCS. More information or workshop registration is online at

After weeks of lazy summer days, late nights, varying routines and minimal mental stimulation, the return to school can seem overwhelming to students of all ages.

Despite your best efforts, students prepare for their new year at school by hoping for the best and imagining the worst. Back-to-school worries include appearance issues, social issues and extracurricular issues, but the single most important worry to students revolves around schoolwork issues. Children can “stress out” about the increasing level of difNculty of a new grade. Their “fear of failure” may exist because of past performance. Now consider whether your child truly has the complete set of “school supplies”. Let’s check his or her “educational toolbox”.

If you don’t know the answers to these questions or it isn’t clear to you what is causing grades to spiral downward, then you should contact Sylvan Learning for a Skills Assessment. It can determine the level your child is working at independently and also identify any skill gaps in reading, math, writing and/or study skills.

For many children who are struggling in school, the problem may be self-evident — they may have poor study skills, they’re not strong in math, or they don’t spend enough time on their homework. In each of these examples, the problem could be solved with a more diligent and structured approach to schoolwork. For other children, however, it may not be clear what is causing their grades to spiral. It could be a child’s lack of conNdence in his or her own learning ability or a lack of grade appropriate academic skills.

Don’t be fooled by the promise of a fresh school year or a new teacher. Children carry their skills, weak and strong, with them year to year. You may be hoping for a different outcome from last year, but if the teacher from the previous year had academic concerns for your child, act now.

The Nrst few weeks of school can set the course for the whole year so be sure to prepare your child with a complete set of school supplies paying particular attention to his or her “educational toolbox”. If you suspect your child is missing some “tools”, contact your North Shore Sylvan Learning to schedule a Sylvan Skills Assessment.

Poor academic performance due to weak skills is very correctable. Hiring supplemental assistance means parents are giving their children an opportunity to excel in the classroom.

Political forum

Business votes, licensing probed Fraser Valley chambers of commerce hosted politicians in Langley to discuss several ideas. by Matthew Claxton

Some of the priorities of Fraser Valley’s business community may be picked up by Langley politicians. Mayors and councillors from Langley City and Township were at the Fraser Valley Business Summit, held Friday at the Coast Hotel. The Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce was one of the organizing groups. Business leaders gave presentations on a number of topics, including

lower business taxes, the need for better urban transit, mobile business licensing, and a proposed business vote. Both Mayor Rick Green of the Township and Mayor Peter Fassbender of the City said they may bring forward some of the ideas they saw. Green noted the mobile business licence idea, to free up businesses from having to register in many separate cities. “I think it makes abundant sense,”

“Transportation is very high on my list of items.” City Mayor Peter Fassbender

Green said. Fassbender, who is the head of TransLink’s mayors council, has been thinking about business and transit issues raised at the

meeting. “Transportation is very high on my list of items,” he said. Langley chamber executive director Lynn Whitehouse said that while Langley’s MLAs and MP couldn’t be there, provincial and federal representatives from other Fraser Valley communities did attend.

Long-time painter shares a passion for old buildings in new series

Al Colton unveils his new series called Heritage Matters.

me. I’m looking not at the history, but at what can make a good painting,” he said. Colton has completed 15 images, including a painting of the Belmont Farm, the co-op’s rail siding in Milner, Porter’s Store, Worrell Crescent, St. George’s Church, the Otter Co-op feed mills, Michaud House, Marr House, the Fort Langley Community Hall, the historic CN train station, and St. Andrew’s United Church, which is celebrating its 125th anniversary the same day Colton’s show opens. He has a dozen or so more that he’s expecting to complete in the months to come – working from a stack of photographs and notes taken during his recent visits to each site. “I’m just in awe,” Birthplace owner Brenda Alberts said looking at the collection hung and ready to show in her gallery. Colton’s show opens Saturday, Sept. 25 and runs until the end of October at 9054 Glover Rd. There will also be a Heritage Matters concert on Oct. 17 at the Chief Sepass Theatre. It will feature Cole Armour, Ryan Faas, Liana Savard, and Carl and Joel Kory. The $30 concert tickets are also available at the gallery. All proceeds from the event go towards the heritage conservation of the Willoughby Community Hall.

ack in the 1980s, Al Colton released a series of hasty pen-and-ink notes depicting a few local heritage landmarks. “Because of that, they think I’m the master of heritage,” Colton told the Langley Advance, while toiling over one more in a series of historic acrylic paintings he’s debuting this weekend at the Birthplace of B.C. Gallery. “If you don’t know your history, you can’t plan for the future,” Colton commented. But that said, he admits he’s not actually much of a history buff. The 89-year-old was compelled to start his most recent Heritage Matters series due to some serious prodding (and free chauffeur service) offered by gallery owners Brenda and Kurt Alberts. “I have this passion for old buildings. I like old buildings. They’re interesting to me. But not because of the history involved, but rather the way they’re built, the angles, the colours, the architectural details. That’s what appeals to

Langley City painter Al Colton, 89, is part way through a new series of acrylic paintings called Heritage Matters. There are already 15 in the series, including Country Lane Antiques (top left), a painting of the historic CN train station in Fort Langley called Right on Time (top right), 1919 Model-T Truck painted in front of the Birthplace of BC Gallery (bottom left), and Porter’s Store (bottom right).

Artist Debra Gow and husband Wayne Wawrenuik have opened up Gallery 68 in their new Clayton Heights neighbourhood.

‘68’ just great for artist

Unique live-work strip of Clayton Heights inspires couple to open a gallery. by Tom Zillich Postmedia Network Inc.


or artist Debra Gow, walking to work never felt so good – or so effortless. Down a flight of stairs and there she is, at the door of her new Gallery 68 art studio. Gow lives with her husband, Wayne Wawreniuk, in the suite above the sub-ground gallery, new to the Clayton Heights area. This four-block strip of 68th Avenue, between 188th and 192nd Streets, is home to a relatively unique live/work zoning that encourages “small-scale, low-impact businesses integrated into the residential community.” It’s the largest such RF9S-zoned area of Surrey, with similar, smaller pockets elsewhere in the city, including Rosemary Heights. A pair of signs indicate the entrance to Gallery 68, which, from the sidewalk, is pretty much hidden from view. “I think people who walk by here are kind of blown away by the fact there’s an art gallery and studio down here,” Gow said. “They really don’t expect it in an area like this.” Two blocks away, NT Tailor has

opened in a similar space, while My Chiropractor is located still further to the west. Chiropractor Grant O’Neill opened his business three years ago, and lives upstairs with his family. “The zoning is brilliant,” O’Neill told the Postmedia Network Inc. “I used to live and work in Toronto, and this kind of thing is quite prominent there. What they’ve done here is really forward-thinking.... I’m surprised more businesses don’t open here.” City planners are encouraged by the opening of Gallery 68, hoping more small-scale businesses follow suit – hair salons, craft stores, bakeries, shoe-repair shops and the like. The RF9S zoning, according to a city report, “fills the gap between the more restrictive home-based business regulations contained in Surrey’s zoning bylaw, under the ‘home occupation’ provisions, and the full-scale business which must be located within a commercial or industrial area.” Last December, the owners of Gallery 68 moved from a townhouse complex just up the street. Parents of two adult children, they needed a bit more living space and, through their realtor, learned more about the special zoning along 68th Avenue. “We weren’t sure about it at first,” Wawrenuik said. “But we made an offer and, about

a week later, I was driving home from work and it occurred to me: Instead of a rental suite, why don’t we do an art gallery down there, because she (Gow) has been painting all her life, and teaching,” he recalled. “So it was my idea, and she seconded the motion,” he added with a laugh. On the weekend of May 28-29, a grand-opening event attracted a couple hundred people to Gallery 68, a venue for Gow’s colourful acrylics, collages and watercolours. “A number of people came saying that curiosity got the best of them,” Wawrenuik said. “An art gallery in the basement of a home? That’s pretty unique.” Wawreniuk, who runs a construction-design company, helped create the gallery space, blessed with versatile lighting to help Gow paint and showcase her work, and that of other artists. “Now I don’t have oodles and oodles of paint and papers taking over the house,” Gow said. “It’s perfect for me, because in the townhouse where we were before, I took over the whole kitchen and dining room. Ask Wayne, he’ll tell you. This is very nice. Now I can close the door and have everything in this space, and create.” Gallery 68 is located at 19141 68th Ave., and online at

but feisty actress. Kate has been active in local theatre groups for many years and was most recently seen on stage in the Murrayville Players productions of Financial Deficit Disorder and A Simple Diagnosis both written by local playwright Ron May. Diane Gendron was awarded a bronze medal for her performance as the bitter, aging actress, Regina Marlow, who alienates everyone in the cast and crew before she dies mysteriously. Gendron was also on stage in Langley this summer as queen of the Amazons in A Midsummer Night’s Dream staged by Bard in the Valley. She has had roles in Steel Magnolias and I Remember You with the Langley Players, The Inheritance with the Centre Stage Players and A Simple Diagnosis with the Murrayville Performers. She has been in several TV commercials and performed with a professional company in Victoria as well as several community theatre companies in B.C. The play received an honourable mention in the Best Production category. Actors Beebe Fleming (as the understudy), Pat Caffery (the props woman), Ron Savoy (who portrayed the director), Darlene Smith (the maid), Diane Giesbrecht (the wardrobe mistress) and Joyce Douglas (a reporter) made up the rest of the cast.

ockhounds will display their hard work this weekend at the Fraser Valley Rock and Gem Club Annual Show. The show, to be held at the Old Age Pensioners Hall at 3015 273 St., Aldergrove, will include displays of crystals and gems, beads, and supplies, along with demonstrations of silversmithing, beading, wire knitting, and chain making. This is the club’s 51st year of collecting and beautifying stones, said local member Karen Archibald. “We do all kinds of things related to the lapidary arts,” Archibald said. From faceting gems to carving soapstone, the members work with their materials in a

variety of ways. Before they can work on a stone, however, they have to find it. The club makes monthly field trips around the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley in search of good material. It’s a good hobby for a family, Archibald said. Club memberships are $20 for an individual or $30 for a family. In addition to field trips there are monthly “rock talks” about jewels, minerals or geology. The club also maintains its own workshop in Aldergrove, for people to cut and grind stones. The gem show will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sept. 25 and 26. Admission is by donation, and there will be a silent auction and door prizes.

Events help pay injured race car driver’s medical bills Travis Rutz is benefitting from the support of friends, family. by Matthew Claxton

“Kathy, Travis’ mom was able to attend with his family and friends, the atmosphere was amazing and the family commented on how amazing it was to see so much of the community pull together for Travis, many of whom didn’t even know him and came out to show support to this amazing family,” Axness said. Her efforts don’t end there. She’ll be running another half-marathon in White Rock on Sunday

(Sept. 26), the day before the one-year anniversary of Rutz’s crash. Rutz was a promising racer before he was badly hurt in a three-car pileup on an Indiana racetrack. Since then, his family has faced mounting bills, as they work to get Rutz the best therapy possible. Rutz is currently in a specialized brain injury rehabilitation facility in Ponoka, Alta. Axness said Rutz’s family

is pleased, and say he’s progressing leaps and bounds under his new treatment regime. “Travis is making good progress at the centre in Ponoka, the team has really rallied for him and he has become one of their personal success stories at the centre,” Axness said. “The family could not be happier to see him in this positive place where others are fighting just as hard as they are to help Travis!”

New Westminster’s Andrea Fergusson painted this Travis Rutz portrait, one of 41 art pieces sold to raise money to help him.

night of art and music to raise money for an injured Langley race car driver was a big success. “It was unbelievable, it was really good,” said Emily

She’s already run a half-marathon, and on Sept. 12 she held a concert at the Lotus Sound Lounge in Vancouver.

Painting captures a young Red Robinson by Roxanne Hooper


.C. music expert Red Robinson figures prominently into a new painting created by Langley’s own Brian Croft. The image, call the Aristocratic Drive-In – 1958, will be unveiled publicly at a fundraising art show being hosted by former Langley Senator Gerry St. Germain next weekend. “Part of the fun is that I have, with his permission, painted Red Robinson in his 1957 red Ford Fairlane convertible, into the scene,” Croft said, explaining the unexpected turn this painting took part way through. Two months ago, he received an imprompt email from Robinson, commending him on his artistic talent. The famous Canadian DJ had been turned onto Croft’s work by a friend. When Robinson learned the artist was preserving one of his favourite old haunts on canvas, the chit-chat began about the old drive-in (a site that has since been taken over by White Spot at Cambie Street and 13th Avenue). Croft credited Robinson – who was a regular at the Aristocratic Drive-In in that

Brian Croft’s Aristocratic Drive-In – 1958 was completed three weeks ago. era – for helping sort out a number of historic details during subsequent conversations and emails. “I was really struggling on this one. I couldn’t find very many people who even remembered it,” Croft said. “It was incredible to have a great celebrity holding my hand all the way through it,” he added, noting he finished it only three weeks ago. “The very busy man that he is, he was always quick to get back to me and answer my questions.” Then the lightning bolt hit. Croft approached Robinson, asking if he could paint the local music great into the 25 X 40-inch acrylic piece. “I’d be honoured,” Robinson replied. Croft had been working on the painting since Janu-

ary, so Robinson’s addition meant the instant iradication of one of the car from the image. The artist replaced it with a likeness of a much younger Robinson and his near new red convertible at the back of the lot. Together, they even worked in a few other realistic details, including a young brunette at Robinson’s side – complete with a Jackie O’ ’do – as well as a crowd of teens gathered around. This isn’t the only new Croft painting to be unveiled at the upcoming three-day fundraiser. Another painting, depicts a winter evening of Cloverdale in 1913, will be seen publicly for the first time. “These things have gotten so intricate that I’m pumping out only two or three pieces

a year,” Croft said, particularly proud of both pieces. A framed print of the Cloverdale painting is being donated to the City of Surrey on Oct. 22, and due to his great attention to detail, that piece will become a fixture in the museum’s permanent collection. In the meantime, both of his new paintings will be exhibited in the West is Best Fine Art Show happening Oct. 1-3 at Germain’s ranch, Indian Springs Land and Cattle Company, at 19339 8th Ave. in South Surrey. The show will feature some of the finest artists in Western Canada, including Roger Arndt, Jonn Einerssen, Adeline Halvorson, Brent Heighton, Andrew Kiss, Karl Lansing, Doug Levitt, Julia Lucich, Audrey Nanimahoo, Murray Phillips, Vance Theoret, Dennis Webber, and Croft. This is a fundraising event, as well, with 25 per cent of all sales donated to the National Aboriginal Achievement Foundation. The show runs Friday, Oct. 1, 7-10 p.m. with an opening reception and music by Langley’s own guitarist John Gilliat.

TWU hockey graduates to varsity Couple sues NHL player The Titans will be known as the Spartans, and their home opener is scheduled tonight (Friday) at the Langley Events Centre.

After a 20-year absence, Trinity Western University will once again see men’s hockey wearing the Spartan logo and colours. Spartan director of athletics Murray Hall and dean of human kinetics Dr. Blair Whitmarsh recently announced that Spartans varsity hockey has returned. “We enthusiastically welcome men’s ice hockey as the newest team to the Spartan family,” Hall said. “Adding a Canadian favourite to our sport menu is an important step in the growth of hockey at TWU. There is a big upside to this new Spartan sport. We can’t wait for the puck to drop this fall.” Despite the 20-year absence from the varsity program, men’s hockey has been alive and well at TWU. Recreation services has had club hockey for many years in the form of the TWU Titans and the TWU Bombers. However, over the years, the Titans have grown past club status and have competed in the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) for the past five seasons with Whitmarsh and the School of Human Kinetics taking control of the program this past year. “The Titans hockey team, under the direction of Dr. Chuck MacKnee and, most recently, Dwayne Lowdermilk, has been a strong club team for many years,” Whitmarsh said. “After all these years of challenges and triumphs, it is very exciting to see the Titans hockey team making the transition to full varsity status within the department of athletics. The name change to Spartans signifies a strong commitment by the university and the department of athletics to see university hockey flourish and grow.” Current head coach Dwayne Lowdermilk, who was behind the Titans bench this past season, also coached Spartans hockey in 1988/89,

The Toronto Maple Leafs and Montreal Canadiens rivalry has just heated up more. Dylan Richardson and his wife Brenna are suing Leafs centre Mikhail Grabovski, alleging they were both assaulted by Grabovski in a brawl in Yaletown during the 2010 Games. Dylan Richardson was wearing a Canadiens jersey at the time. They filed a civil suit in the B.C. Supreme Court on Sept. 14. Richardson claims he was downtown on Feb. 20 when Grabovski punched him in the face, causing him to lose conciousness, and leaving the autobody technician with a head injury, multiple facial fractures requiring reconstructive surgery, trauma to his back, teeth and eyes, memory loss, a change in personality and ongoing headaches. “Immediately after striking the plaintiff Dylan Richardson with the intent to further humiliate and denigrate (him), the defendant assaulted and committed a battery on the plaintiff Brenna Richardson by punching (her) in the face,” the Canadian Press reported the document said. The Richardsons want punitive damages, as well as reibursment for lost income and healthcare expenses. Grabovski, in Vancouver to play with the Belarus hockey team, was arrested by Vancouver police after the confrontation, but never charged because VPD didn’t believe there was any likelihood of atttaining a conviction. The brawl in question started with an argument in a bar and escalated into a streetfight involving more than a dozen people, many of whom had been drinking. Grabovski had a broken wrist at the time of the incident, and couldn’t play for Belarus. Grabovksi was held in jail for seven hours and released into the custody of his parents. Asked for comment after the incident, Leafs and U.S. Olympic team GM Brian Burke said: “As far as I know, he’s healthy. Stupid but healthy.” Grabovski didn’t have much to say on the matter at the Leafs training camp this week. “I had a bad injury, bad start, not just for me, for the team,” he told the Toronto Star about last season. - From the Vancouver Province

Teams add special gear Expect a little something special on the hockey gear of two local teams. by Heather Colpitts

Two local hockey squads are showing that their players have big hearts. The Aldergrove Kodiaks and the Langley Chiefs are lacing up for games this autumn with pink skate laces. Their sticks will also have pink tape. It’s all in support of the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure. The Kodiaks don their pink for their home game Sept. 29 against the Delta Ice Hawks in the Aldergrove Community Arena. The Langley Chiefs home game with the special uniform addition takes place Oct. 23 at the Langley Events Centre. The Surrey Eagles will visit. Other teams taking part in this spe-

cial initiative include the Abbotsford Pilots, the Mission Icebreakers and the Abbotsford Heat. “It’s exciting to have so many teams in the Fraser Valley area support the breast cancer cause,” said Shelley Cameron, volunteer co-run director for Abbotsford’s Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation CIBC Run for the Cure. “They all have mothers, sisters, wives and girlfriends, and that means breast cancer can have an impact on their lives. They’re wearing a bit of pink to show Fraser Valley hockey fans that they’re committed to a future without breast cancer.” The Run for the Cure takes place Oct. 3 in 60 locations across Canada, including nine in B.C. (Abbotsford-Fraser Valley, West Kootenay, Kamloops, Kelowna, Nanaimo, Prince George, Vancouver, Vernon and Victoria). The run raises funds for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation while the hockey campaign is intended to raise awareness of breast cancer issues and the run.

Commonwealth Games

Tuft awaits word on Games

A Langley cyclist and others could face concerns in Delhi.

The Delhi Commonwealth Games were plunged into crisis days before they’re to begin. The athletes’ village has been described as “uninhabitable” and a footbridge collapsed at the main stadium on Tuesday. A portion of a false ceiling at the weighlifting venue

fell down Wednesday. Adding to the sense of chaos that has enveloped an event India hoped would project its new economic power on the international stage, some leading athletes pulled out because of safety fears and some countries including Canada and New Zealand threatened to do the same. Reached at the Vancouver airport on his way to the World Games in Australia, Svein Tuft, a 33-year-old cyclist from Langley, said athletes need

to prepare to compete and not focus on other issues. “Any time you travel to different parts of the world, definitely every place has its dangerous issues.” But he said it’s up to Commonwealth Games Canada staff to determine whether it’s safe. “I can’t give an opinion. I don’t know all the factors. They have to make the right decision.”

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The weeks ahead feature relationships, opportunities and opposition, relocation, contracts, negotiations, litigation, agreements. In general, others will have the upper hand, so diplomacy/compromise is your protection, and eagerness to join is your opportunity. Your sexual side works overtime (right through December,but most strongly through late October) – excitement, attraction are certain, but don’t overstep social boundaries. True love could occur! Financial partnerships, agreements and investments that arise will grow to a November climax. Chase romance Saturday p.m. Taurus April 20-May 20: Work and health concerns fill the weeks ahead. Your drudgery will be amply relieved, though, by an unusual run of exciting meetings, attractions and exotic temptations. One particularly intriguing person, adventure or opportunity will “stick with you” right into early 2011. Still, don’t neglect chores. Your energy and charisma get a nice boost Sunday/Monday – Sunday could trigger one of those exotic attractions! Chase money Tuesday (easy, stable) and Wednesday (minor glitches). Communications, paperwork, errands irk you Thursday, succeed with ease Friday. Home, kids bless Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Lie low Sunday/Monday: contemplate, plan for the future, attend to duties. Be charitable, spiritual. Your energy and charisma surge back Tuesday/Wednesday – romance is a definite possibility, if you chase it. Three factors characterize romance until October 2012: one, your affections mingle deeply and successfully with sexual and financial currents; two, there might be an age difference. Three, romance will be slow to develop, perhaps because others doubt your loyalty. (Or find you too old or young). You’ll have to “prove” your love. Money caution Thursday, luck Friday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: This week and the next few, settle into family, property, security, retirement prospects, Mother Nature, soul, the basics of your life and business. Despite this accent on home and soul – or perhaps due to it – romance wanders into your life (more like strolls, for it seems pretty intent) – if not now, then soon. (The influence lasts to next January.) If you’re happily married, the same influence enlivens and brings success to your dealings with children and/or creative projects. Hopes, optimism, social delights early week. Retreat Tuesday/Wednesday. Your energy returns Thursday onward. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The weeks ahead are generally easy, without “high stakes” pressure. But you’ll be busy – a flurry of travel, paperwork, details, errands and communications arrives. You might change homes, or renovate/decorate. This (or some other domestic adjustment) brings strife and affection – the strife lasts only through October, the affection through December. (Which hints at a splendid outcome.) You might sign legal papers involving property. Be ambitious Sunday/Monday. Social delights, wish fulfilment, light romance visit you midweek! Retreat, live cautiously Thursday/Friday. You shine Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Chase money, buy and sell, seek new clients or a pay raise during the next few weeks. Money isn’t easy for you to earn now through October 2012, but it can increase through creativity, art/beauty, judicious speculation/risk, pleasure fields such as vacation, recreation, camping, etc., and “indulging children” (e.g., toys, kids’ fashions). You might be busy chasing after or talking to a romantic/ sexual interest this autumn/winter – if you keep it light, you’ll succeed. Sunday/Monday are mellow, tickle your romantic antennae. Be ambitious midweek. Caution Thursday, joy Friday!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness reach a yearly peak now, Libra – charge ahead, insist on your way, start important new ventures or give a strong heave to ones that you need to complete. You’ll attract attention, but in a quiet way. Money will flow swiftly to you through late October, but you’ll be tempted to spend carelessly, especially with a partner, or in an attempt to attract a person or opportunity – slow down! Wait until November/December, when you’ll spend more wisely, and luckily. Sexy stuff Sunday/Monday. Love, wisdom midweek. Don’t push higher-ups Thursday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: You’re weary but your sexual, partnership and romantic magnetism rises. Is that a good thing? Who knows? A moderate approach is best: don’t overwork, and keep your intimate clinches honest. Don’t embrace anyone you suspect could become a burden in future. (You hardly need this advice, anyway.) You face heavy travel, paperwork or communication duties now to late 2012. Ah, well, grin and bear it. Sunday/Monday spark an attraction: show humour! Intimate temptations come Tuesday (good) and Wednesday (iffy to suppertime, good late night). Careful (legally, ethically) Thursday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Entertainment, light romance (heavy stuff would burden you in future) popularity, optimism and happiness – these pay a month-long visit! You might be held back by a nagging health problem (related to sugar?). This health influence lasts to January 2011, so take care of it now. If nothing “shows up” Sunday/Monday or Thursday, you’re fine. Tackle chores early week. Exciting meetings or opportunities arise Tuesday/ Wednesday – say Yes – don’t insist that it be “your way.” Be careful with finances, health, intimacy, commitments Thursday (Friday’s lucky here). Gentle love, joy Saturday.

Sept. 26 - Oct. 2 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Be on your toes – ambitions rise, and so do pressures to perform. The accent is on prestige relations, dealings with higherups. Your social side grows active – a light romance might be brewing. Be alert, though – don’t let an attraction interfere with (or smudge) your ambitions or reputation. Sunday/Monday are romantic, creative. Tackle chores Tuesday/Wednesday. (Tuesday best – get an early start.) Be cautious in relationships Thursday – agree to nothing, but alienate no one. Friday offers success in the same zone. Saturday starts a weekend of mystery, desire, investigation. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A gentle, philosophical, loving mood comes upon you for a few weeks. Intellectual, legal, educational, cultural, religious, fartravel and international involvements are favoured. If you started an “angry communication” in 2009, it can be solved now. You might be surprised to find that you’re loved – or not! Bosses, parents and other “high-ups” continue to treat you with impatience and affection: maintain humour and you’ll maintain the affection. (The impatience will fade before November; the affection lasts to 2011.) Home, family Sunday/ Monday. Romance midweek. Caution Thursday! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Mysteries and investigation, subconscious urges, lust, large finances, lifestyle changes, commitments and consequences fill the weeks ahead. Be careful with legal, cultural and ethical zones – your impatience to get things done could stir up costly antagonism. (Despite this, these areas, as well as international travel and higher education, yield rewards right into January.) Tackle errands, paperwork – and meet a sweet friend – Sunday/Monday. Be domestic, restful Tuesday/Wednesday. Romance and speculation call you Thursday, but need much caution – try these Friday instead. Chores Saturday. • Reading: 416-686-5014

Cops for Cancer

Tour de Valley introduced to cancer reality …continued from page A1

Others I”m going to get to know – many are past riders, almost all are police or paramedics. While we ate pizza and memorized rule two, the mood was easy and joking – many of these volunteers have been doing this for a decade or more, from the inception of the local cycling tours. And you know they aren’t doing it for the glory – their job includes washing sweaty Tour uniforms and socks. Bringing us back from how we’ll ride to why we ride was Tea Sampson. She was there to give us 1,300 reasons to ride. That’s the number of children who are diagnosed with cancer every year in Canada. Almost 10 years ago, her son Lucas was one of those diagnosed, when he was just a year old. There is an 80 per cent cure rate for childhood cancer, Sampson said. That means 260 children die of their cancers, a number that would empty a small elementary

school. “A 100 per cent cure rate is the only acceptable rate,” Sampson said. She told us about what it’s like to care for a child who’s still barely on solid foods, while he’s having surgery to remove a kidney, then going through chemotherapy and radiation – how even with 10 years cancer-free, the side effects of those treatments and the constant watch against its return still affect her son. “The cancer journey doesn’t end when treatment ends,” Sampson said. There may have been a dry eye in the room, but it wasn’t mine. On our first full day of riding, we’ll get to meet Lucas, and we’ll meet our other junior team members at schools across the Lower Mainland. Keep an eye on for updates. To donate to the Canadian Cancer Society and the Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley, go to

Langley Advance reporter Matthew Claxton has joined Cops for Cancer’s Tour de Valley, cycling through the Fraser Valley over the coming week, to raise funds and awareness for childhood cancer. Claxton will be filing reports on his excursion at

Dear Editor, When you send your children to school, you expect them to be safe, so when they get in your car and start driving, you should be able to feel the same way. Unfortunately, it isn’t the way it works in Langley. I have been driving with my “L” for five months, and sadly, people show me less respect every day. I’ve seen more dangerous adults, driving without the red “L” or green “N” on their vehicles, texting, speeding, passing when it’s unsafe, and even running a red light, nearly killing me, my grandmother, and my six-year-old brother. This shouldn’t be the way it works when you’re learning. Honking the horn at an “L” driver could cause an accident, because it makes them flustered and wonder what they’re doing wrong, when really, they just aren’t going fast enough. Learners and new drivers are given a bad rep for being “teenagers,” when we’re just learning with the examples that our parents and others set for us. Showing respect and being patient with learners and new drivers would be setting a better example, by practising the same rules.

Everyone was a learner once, and most keep learning until the day they pass away. So next time you get into your vehicle, think about this: “I’m going to drive safely today, because my children may not be on the road yet, but someone else’s kids are.” When you are coming home from a dinner party and have had a couple of drinks, call a cab. Don’t forget to put your turn single on, so that we remember to do it, too.

And when you’re in enough of a hurry to pass in an unsafe zone, it isn’t just the “L” driver’s life on the line, it’s yours, too. Drive safely, keep the children safe, and set a great example for new learners. Rome wasn’t built in a day, so maybe it will take time, but hopefully people will really think about driving safely, instead of being careless enough to cause an accident. Sarah Braaten, Langley


University separation causes anxiety Dear Editor, Karly Paul-Morris’s column [Start of university has one mother reflecting on change, Sept. 3 column,] is not only about one mother – it’s about a whole generation of mothers and fathers facing the same crossroads. My husband found the article just after we needed it. We are sending our son off to university, as well, and it’s been a fairly rocky, emotional ride. On one hand, you are proud to see this young person blossom and take on the world with his own ideas, and

on the other hand, you are mourning your own position in this person’s life. Thanks for the perfect article at the perfect time. Maybe there should be a support group for parents saying “so long and good luck” to their young. I wish I had more friends with kids just a little older than mine, so I know what’s coming! J. Scott, Langley For more letters to the editor visit...
