Before you squash it into oblivion with a folded magazine, or take a tennis racket to one of its webs, take heed of this: the spider plays a key role in the planet’s health. This is according to the Langley Environmental Partners Society. “Many people have a great fear of spiders, and autumn is certainly spider season,” a LEPS press release states. “However, spiders are quite important to the well being of society. Spiders may be creepy, but they are indeed a beneficial insect playing an important role in our ecosystem.” According to LEPS, spiders are an important part of the food chain. As predators, they control pest populations by feeding on a wide variety of insects, such as flies, mosquitoes, aphids, and grasshoppers. Spiders help rid us of unwanted insects in our homes, gardens, and on farms. It is estimated that spiders eat more insects than the weight of the world’s entire human population combined. The world-wide benefit of pest control by predatory insects and spiders together may exceed US $100 billion per year. Spiders, these popular symbols of Halloween, themselves also provide an important food source for birds and other animals. Of the more than 20,000 different species of spiders in the Americas, only a few of them cause problems for people. Many spider venoms are dangerous only to the species’ natural prey. Only four species are considered to be truly dangerous to humans: the brown recluse, black widow, hobo spider, and the yellow sac spider. In some parts of the world, larger spiders are eaten and also considered a delicacy. In Cambodia, fried spiders are a common treat. Insecticides are an ineffective way of controlling spiders indoors. House spiders should be relocated outdoors, and can be dispatched to the outside world by catching them carefully and gently with a jar and a stiff piece of paper, and then releasing them.

Veissmann Manufacturing is feeding the demand for efficient and green energy in B.C. by Matthew Claxton

A cluster of apartments and seniors housing rising in Murrayville right now includes a feature still uncommon in the Lower Mainland: solar water heating. The solar heaters on the roof of the project, going up near 223rd Street and Fraser Highway, are provided by Veissmann Manufacturing, the West Coast offices of which are located in Langley. A total of 120 Veissmann solar water heaters will be installed when the project is finished. The German-owned company is bringing energy efficiency technologies from Europe to North America, including right here, said regional manager Randy Stuart. “Europe is substantially ahead of us on the efficiency curve,” Stuart said. However, pressure to slash carbon emissions, and the desire to find long-term cost savings have both driven more builders and homeowners to alternative heating methods. Langley residents have tried out geothermal heating, and the Township is considering a neighbourhood heating project. Other Lower Mainland communities are also dipping a toe in the pool. That has seen Veissmann’s business grow fourfold in the past 10 years, Stuart said. The company’s primary business is highefficiency boilers used for radiant floor heating. If it’s built into a home or office from the start, heating with water is no more costly, and is more energy efficient than using a furnace and forced air, Stuart said. The pipes for water take up less space than air ducts, and the heat is transmitted more efficiently.

Matthew Claxton/Langley Advance

Randy Stuart of Veissmann Manufacturing peered through one of the company’s heat exchangers at their Langley offices. Another, more radical technology is a high-tech variation on the wood-burning fireplace. Veissmann makes wood pellet burning systems to heat water, which should be a natural fit for B.C. The province is a net exporter of wood pellets, using beetle-killed wood from the Interior. Despite burning wood, the system is much cleaner than a wood-burning fireplace, Stuart said. It carefully feeds in pellets and air to create an ideal burning mixture, and uses a two-stage burning process. “Everything is very closely controlled,” Stuart said. Six months of burning will yield about a gallon of fine ash, and if renewable farmed trees are used for fuels, the system is almost completely carbon neutral. The system is about the size of a furnace, with an additional pellet holder about the size of an oil drum. The problem is that the pellets need to be delivered with some regularity. Until there is a significant number of users, there’s no

money in setting up a regular delivery service of fresh pellets. The low price of natural gas is also a disincentive for people to switch heating systems, Stuart said. From small home and office heating systems, Veissmann is also a partner in one of the largest efficient heating projects in the Lower Mainland. It supplies technology for the Lonsdale Energy Corp. The City of North Vancouver create the LEC as a district energy project, allowing buildings to circulate heated water, complete with mini-heating plants in a number of buildings. Every new large building in the City of North Van must now join the LEC. Over the next few years, Veissmann’s B.C. sales are expected to grow, as the provincial government has pledged to make many schools, hospitals, and other government buildings carbon neutral. “We are still seeing very strong growth,” Stuart said. In fact, the company has so far seen a 50 per cent increase this year over last year.

Public garden closer to growth

A sizeable donation will help bring an arboretum in the Township to life in coming years. by Roxanne Hooper

A $25,000-cash infusion and offers of labour and heavy duty equipment will help move a 35-acre public garden a lot closer to realization. In cooperation with Langley Township and City, the Arboretum and Botanical Society of Langley (ABSL) has been working to raise funds to create the Derek Doubleday Arboretum as a public facility for almost two years. The recent donations from Bill Clemas of W.R. Clemas & Son Construction Ltd. will speed up the progress on the project significantly, said membership chair Eric Bysouth. The financial contribution will be used to buy base materials for Photo contributed site roads, trails and the A $25,000 cheque from Bill parking lot, with Clemas Clemas (right), along with a pledge also offering labour and of his heavy equipment, was heavy equipment to help actually lay the foundation gratefully accepted by Arboretum and Botanical Society of Langley for this project, Bysouth explained. Work actually founder Les Clay. began on site last week. If founder Les Clay has his way, this public garden will one day feature an educational centre, trails, bridges, sustainable horticulture, urban agriculture, and some riparian area plantings. “ABSL thanks Bill Clemas for his generous contribution to the project,” Bysouth said. “After this work is done, the Township will arrange to start with the basic garden development. The society will work to raise funds for specific planting work, including plantings that citizens donate private funds for,” he elaborated. Given the recent donations, Clay is optimistic the facility will be ready for some planting next year. In fact, he is counting on transplanting a few giant specimens from his own garden to the site next spring. The site, owned by the Township (and a small portion by the City) is located north of Fraser Highway and the old Berry farm land, and southwest of the Langley Regional Airport.

Environmental discussion


Eco-friends join Green Drinks

NO HST % 40

Green is the colour of a local environmentally conscious group that has linked up with a like-minded international organization. by Bethany Meckelburg

“Are you green?” That’s the catchphrase of Green Drinks International – an organization of eco-minded social networking groups that meets informally once a month. Its premise is simple: get a bunch of like-minded individuals talking about local environmental concerns while having fun over drinks. “The point is to connect people with similar interests so that they can make a difference in their community,” explained the Langley chapter’s founder, Travis Strain. Strain started the Langley chapter after a friend showed him the Green Drinks website. “I wanted to put on an event for people interested in anything green,” he explained, citing university classes as the spark to his eco-passion. “I wanted to expand my network of like-minded people.” And Green Drinks provided him with the opportunity to do just that.





Provincial politics

Conservatives set up politics in Langley


BC Conservatives have formed constituency organizations in both the Langley and Fort Langley-Aldergrove provincial ridings, with Steve Schafer as president in Langley and John Burns presiding in Fort Langley-Aldergrove. The BC Conservative party will hold its annual general meeting on Oct. 16 at UBC. Registration starts at 9 a.m.

Strain runs both the Surrey and Langley chapters of Green Drinks International and is hoping to expand both. The Surrey group has been going for 10 months and has enough members to support an occasional speaker to discuss a specialized topic for a portion of the evening, but the Langley group is still young. While they have only been meeting for four months, Strain has already begun to plan some of the topics the group could explore further, like transit in Langley. “That’s a huge one,” he said. But he also wants to discuss topics such as organizations that focus on bringing a sense of community back into neighbourhoods and environmentally friendly cleaners. Langley Green Drinks is for anyone, whether they work in an environmental field or just want to live a more sustainable life. They meet once a month, usually the fourth Tuesday of every month, and the meeting lasts around two hours. “It’s a very free-flowing network,” Strain said. “There’s really no agenda.” People are free to come and go as they please, and the crowd isn’t just people from Langley. Others from surrounding Green Drinks groups in New Westminster, the Tri-Cities, and Vancouver often stop by to join the conversation. “There’s lots of intermingling,” Strain said. Which, after all, is the whole point. Langley Green Drinks will be having their next meeting at the Sonoma Grill and Lounge on October 26 at 6 p.m. To find out more about the Langley chapter or to sign up for a monthly reminder email, visit More information about Green Drinks International can be found online at

Police dog finds phone wire thief

But mom…

One man faces charges after he was caught with stolen phone wire recently.

A mare and its foal were spotted frolicking in a North Langley field, taking advantage of the unexpected sunshine to gallop around the field and graze. Occasionally the foal would wonder off, but it didn’t take long before mom came wandering over to check up and find out what her kid was up to.

by Matthew Claxton

A pair of observant Langley residents put a stop to some wire thieves last week. Just before 3:30 a.m. on Oct. 8, the two residents phoned the police to report seeing two men stealing phone wire in the 5100 block of 240th Street. They couldn’t give much of a description, simply saying that one of the men was carrying a backpack, said RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks. Police responding to the call found broken wire hanging from a pole. A dog unit called in picked up a trail and led officers to two mountain bikes, a back pack, and a pair of tree shears hidden in a bush. Nearby hiding in the underbrush was a 33-year-old Langley man. He was arrested for theft. More than 45 metres of phone wire was recovered. Marks said the wire’s value is about $1,000, but repairs will cost about $5,000. Phone service to almost 100 homes was disrupted by the attempted theft. Suspicious activity around telephone poles should be reported to the police, Marks said. The thefts impact large parts of the community through loss of service. In a recent example, phone cable stolen from Burnaby caused a phone and pager blackout for the Burnaby General Hospital, a potential disaster for patients.

Property taxes remain stable for TransLink No property tax hikes are coming from TransLink, but vehicle levies remain on the table. by Matthew Claxton

There will be no hikes in property taxes to pay for expanded TransLink service, Lower Mainland mayors have decided.

A meeting of the TransLink mayors council on Tuesday voted unanimously to oppose a new property tax. TransLink is desperate for cash to expand its system. It most recently adopted a budget that prevented cuts in the system, but put a hold on any further expansion until it can find new funding sources. The mayors council has ruled out a property tax, but will look at all other options, possibly including a fuel tax or

vehicle levy, said Township Mayor Rick Green. Both the fuel tax and the vehicle levy are seen as negative and are not the Township’s preferred choices, Green said. More discussions with the provincial government are in the works. It remains to be seen if they’ll be receptive to helping TransLink find new sources of cash. “I guess we’ll soon find out,” Green said.

Healthy outdoor exercise, a new outlet for Aldergrove’s young people, and a doorway to greener personal transportation – a new bike park will provide a bit of each. A new park built for mountain bikers by mountain bikers opens Sunday in Aldergrove, and everyone from pros to newbies is encouraged to come and try it out. The facility was created by the Township of Langley in Aldergrove Athletic Park as part of a general improvement plan for the entire park. The Mountain Bike Park will be officially opened at 2707 268 Street at 1 p.m. on Oct. 17. If weather allows, enthusiasts are encouraged to bring their bikes out for a test run. “This is a great addition to Aldergrove Athletic Park, and to the recreational opportunities for young people in Aldergrove in general,” said Al Neufeld, the Township’s manager of parks design and development. “We expect it will get a lot of use from mountain bikers and BMXers from within the community and throughout Langley,” he said. The new Mountain Bike Park features four main areas, said Township landscape design coordinator Blair Arbuthnot: a jump area for mountain bikes and BMXs; a trials area where riders can develop their slow moving skills on racks, ramps, logs, and stumps; a BMX track; and a perimeter pump track where beginners can learn to ride BMX and mountain bikes on low rollers that are like speed bumps. “The great thing is the users have had input into the facility right from when it

was first being planned, all the way up to the building stage,” Arbuthnot said. Young BMXers and mountain bikers took part in a workshop and helped come up with the original conceptual design. When it came time to construct the track, Triex Contractors hired a number of the young people who helped design the facility to also help build it. “The kids were involved from start to finish,” Arbuthnot said. Bike enthusiasts who helped push for the park hope it will provide a boost for Langley’s bike culture, especially for Aldergrove. It will be the first bike park in Langley that Aldergrove kids can ride to and from, rather than having to haul their bikes in cars or on buses. The Mountain Bike Park is part of an overall enhancement plan for Aldergrove Athletic Park, Neufeld said. A number of changes for the Park had been proposed by Township staff after much input from the community, with a conceptual plan and budget being approved by council last year. Improvements include a playground that was recently completed, a community garden that is currently underway, future addition of a batting cage, and the addition of the Mountain Bike Park. The mountain bike facility is in the centre of the Park, in an area that had previously been treed. The land was cleared for the bike park as the trees had posed nuisance problems and separated the north and south sections of the Park. Funding for the Aldergrove Athletic Park improvements have been provided through a partnership between the Federal government, the Township of Langley, the Rotary Club of Aldergrove, and Aldergrove Minor Baseball Association. The new Mountain Bike Park will be open dawn to dusk, along with the other facilities at Aldergrove Athletic Park.

Three-way loss Canada came third this week in a threeway race for two seats on the United Nations Security Council. It’s a bit of a black eye. We were due for one of those seats. It’s the first time since the United Nations came into being that Canada will have gone an entire decade without a place at that august table. For many, Canada’s failure will be seen as that: a failure. It will be seen as a devastating defeat for a country that has played a disproportionately large role in world affairs, through the UN and as an individual player in global affairs. This is the country that, through the efforts of Lester Pearson’s diplomacy and promotion of the concept of international peace-keeping, used the United Nations to dismantle the near-calamitous Suez Canal crisis in 1956. The diversion from what many feared was developing into a third world war boosted the United Nations’ international credibility by proving that such a body – and especially its Security Council – could have a real and positive impact in the management of international affairs. But 1956 was a long time ago. Canada has backed away from its peace-centred diplomacy, tied financial help to ideology that ignores the facts of human suffering, and digs deeper into its tar sands to fuel global warming. Is it really any wonder that Canada could not muster the votes needed to secure that Security Council seat – votes from the nations we’ve cold-shouldered over the past few years? On the positive side, the entire United Nations organization has been losing credibility of late, thanks to indifferent attitudes like Canada’s, so it’s likely that Canada’s recent rejection will hardly be noticed over time. – B.G.

named in his honour. He has had a commemorative stamp issued in his honour, a song written by Rod Stewart, there is the Terry Fox Hall of Fame, The Terry Fox Laboratories research centre on West 10th, and the Royal Canadian Mint issued a special commemorative dollar coin in his honour. He is the only Canadian to ever have a coin minted in his honour. His mother carried the Olympic flag into BC Place for the Winter Olympics, and of course, there is the Terry Fox Athletic award. And the Vancouver Film Festival is now screening The Terry Fox Story, a documentary by Steve Nash. Most of these things are appropriate, as he was a fine athlete and, sadly, a victim of cancer. And, I wonder, can we be far from bestowing sainthood upon him? I feel it would be more appropriate to name a hospital, another road, a park, or any sports-related thing after him – but an airport? Why? Just so he can have another honour? There are others who are just as deserving of the honour, such as Rick Hansen. He has not been awarded half the honours as Terry Fox. I would suggest, that had Terry Fox lived, many of these posthumous honours would not have been awarded. I guess, as a society, we prefer our heroes to be dead. The Vancouver’s International Airport name, as it now stands, is perfect, rational, and preferable to any famous personality name whose cultural significance inevitably fades with time. The name we give things in our beautiful city should be able to withstand the test of time. And, like Kennedy, Terry Fox will not pass that hard test. YVR is the essence of unique simplicity. Virginia Orleman, Aldergrove



People names too confusing

Dear Editor, I was dismayed to hear YVR is in danger of being renamed, and I hope less sentimental heads prevail and keep the name as is. It may seem mean spirited to protest honouring our local hero, but I dislike naming airports after personalities. Why can’t Montreal simply be Montreal International Airport? Even though, I admired Pierre Elliot Trudeau, who other than Canadians know who was? International travelers must wonder where the PET airport listed on their itineraries is. It makes travel confusing. Who or what is Orly, and does anyone care? I would prefer to fly into Paris International. International should be just that: international. It would be more appropriate if countries named their domestic airports, if they must, after their famous personalities, and even that is iffy. And we certainly should not name anything after long forgotten politicians, no matter how much admired at the time. Even Cape Kennedy has reverted back to Cape Canaveral. It was an ill-conceived and sentimental idea to name the space centre after someone who would be erased from memory by time. And, I’m sorry, but no matter how much we want to deny it, the same will be true of Terry Fox. I have great respect and admiration for Terry Fox and his legacy. He was a wonderfully modest and humble young man, and I believe he would have been embarrassed by all the hoop-la surrounding his name. Yet, he already has 32 roads named in his honour. There are 14 schools and 14 other buildings, including athletic centres. There are seven statues, nine fitness trails, a mountain, a provincial park and our own Coast Guard icebreaker CCGS Terry Fox

Traffic design

Better plan for 56th

Dear Editor, I agree with your reader who suggests the City go back to the original configuration for the intersection of Langley Bypass and 56th Ave. However, if a left turn lane is deemed necessary, I suggest the left turn lane be taken from the south side of the centre. That way, the eastbound traffic would continue in one lane until past the Super Save, and the westbound continue with two lanes through the intersection. As it is, most eastbound vehicles stay in one lane because they have to merge before the Nicomekl bridge anyway, whereas the westbound traffic is funnelled from two lanes into one, and then it opens back up to two lanes until Logan Avenue. Think about it. Lyle Phillips, Langley

Dear Editor, The Rotary Club of Langley Sunrise wishes to thank all elementary schools in Langley School District. Their accommodation was greatly appreciated as it helped to ensure that every Grade 4 student received a free copy of a Canadian Dictionary. More than 1,400 dictionaries were delivered this year to 34 schools. It is the 10th anniversary of the project for the local service club, which has distributed close to 14,000 dictionaries over that time. The dictionaries will assist students with the challenges that learning presents to them now and into the future. Sunrise Rotary issues the specially printed dictionaries annually to Grade 4 students. Members of the Sunrise Club are delighted to undertake the initiative as community volunteers. The dictionaries are individually delivered by Rotarians, to help students understand the importance of learning proper language skills. Our next generation will benefit from a strong

When it comes to the local environment, growth and how it’s managed can be a major factor for good or ill. With Metro Vancouver planning its Regional Growth Strategy for the next 30 years, the next few months will give Langley residents a chance to speak out on changes that could have impacts for generations to come. This November, the Metro Van board is expected to vote on a draft growth strategy (available on the board’s website). The plan is aimed at preventing urban sprawl over agricultural lands, and in putting future dense development along transit routes to encourage people to get out of their cars. That should help cut carbon emissions in the Lower Mainland. As Township planner Ramin Seifi told the Langley Advance, once Metro Vancouver adopts a plan, the Township will have two years to adjust its own community plans to match. Among other things, the Township will likely have to choose “frequent transit areas” where growth will be the most dense. “It’s a safe bet that 200th Street will be one such area,” Seifi said. Others are still up in the air. Another expected change are changes and strengthening to the Green Zone used by Metro Vancouver. Land in the Green Zone can’t be removed without the approval of all Metro Van member communities. A new series of types of land, including conservation lands, recreation lands, and agricultural lands, will replace the blanket Green Zone designation. Transforming those lands for development may get even harder, Seifi said. Finally, the plan would designate the area around the Willowbrook shopping area to be a large Municipal Town Centre. In the Township, Willoughby and Aldergrove would be named as municipal town centres, slated for future growth. Seifi said the Township wanted to have many more small municipal centres, such as Walnut Grove, Murrayville and Brookswood, but Metro Vancouver balked at the idea. Aldergrove, relatively small and isolated on the eastern periphery of Metro Vancouver, was included largely for historic reasons, Seifi said. The public will be able to voice their approval or displeasure with these and other facets of the plan at four public hearings which will be held around the Lower Mainland before Metro Vancouver’s board votes on the strategy. The plan is intended to chart a course for the region until 2040, almost 30 years.

Unsafe trucks targeted Police report that some truck drivers caught in a safety blitz were shockingly ill-prepared. by Matthew Claxton

Langley traffic cops uncovered some strange behaviour by commercial truck drivers during an inspection blitz last week. Members of the local RCMP Traffic Services section joined forces with Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement, a provincial authority, for the Oct. 4-7 effort. More than 1,000 trucks and passenger cars were stopped over four days and hundreds of tickets and violation orders were handed out. Some of the strangest incidents were noted by Cpl. Holly Marks, the Langley RCMP spokesperson. • A Mercedes that was blasting along at more than 70 km/h over the speed limit was pulled over. The driver turned out

to be a mechanic taking the car for a test drive. • A dump truck driver tried to avoid a check point and cut through a warehouse parking lot. Undeterred, police tracked him down and found the driver frantically trying to complete a pre-trip report. • The driver of a flatbed truck stopped on the Langley Bypass wasn’t a fan of seatbelts. He was ticketed after being stopped, then was stopped 15 minutes later by a different officer, and given a second ticket for the same violation. • A tractor trailer unit was pulled over at one check point with its brake pads dragging on the ground. Most of the stops and violations were more routine, and dealt with out-of-date logbooks or pre-trip reports not filled out properly. Tickets for matters such as a lack of insurance, for prohibited drivers, and for driving while talking on a cellphone, were also handed out. Marks said the overwhelming majority of the commercial vehicles pulled over were being driven in a professional manner.


Prolific offenders off to jail

Another of the prolific offenders targeted by Langley police was arrested last week. by Matthew Claxton

One of Langley’s targeted prolific criminals didn’t go quietly when RCMP busted him last week, allegedly attacking an officer. Jamie Poole is one of 30 locals who come to the frequent attention of police. His Oct. 7 arrest was initially sparked by nothing more than an officer trying to give him a ticket for not wearing a bike helmet. Poole was seen riding near the front entrance of Baseline’s Pub in Langley City, said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks. A member of the Core Enforcement Team tried to stop Poole nearby to talk about proper bike safety, but he ignored the officer’s lights and sirens. He rode through the Cascades Casino parking lot, back past Baselines, and south across the

City, eluding the officer. A check then found that a judge had forbidden Poole, as a result of previous charges, to be within 100 metres of Baseline’s. The search then intensified, with other officers becoming involved, Marks said. Even the Air One helicopter offered to help track down Poole. He was found near Douglas Park Elementary, and officers followed him to Portage Park. He was finally arrested in the parking lot of an apartment complex in the 20600 block of 54th Avenue. Poole got off his bike as an officer approached, and allegedly threw his bike. The Mountie received a cut to one ankle from the attack. Poole has now been charged with assaulting a peace officer and breaching an undertaking. He was held in custody pending a court appearance this week. Another prolific offender will be off the list, at least for a while. Barry Smith, 39, was sentenced last week to one year in prison for a break and enter committed on July 1, Marks said. He also faces a year of probation after the prison term is up.

Sometimes, all it takes is for someone to give you a chance. And when they do, it can change your life. For several people who do landscaping and care for the greenery in Langley Township, that is exactly what happened. They are employees of Ecoworks, one of the programs offered by the Mennonite Central Committee BC (MCCBC) through its employment and community development department. Through Ecoworks, employees learn important job and life skills that can enhance their futures while helping the environment and providing the Township with an important service. “We exist to help people,” said MCCBC’s James Siebert. “Our goal is not just financial: it is social,” he explained. “Our goal is to help people by giving them a job so that they can learn valuable employability skills and complete the necessary training to do their job well, build self confidence, and gain references so that they can make use of further employment opportunities,” Siebert said. “The skills learned may open up opportunities in the landscape/horticulture industry or any other job, as the skills are quite transferable. It is a phe-

Some are completely new to Canada or the community and don’t have connections. Some do not have a resume and don’t know how to look for work, and others do not have any work experience. In Langley, MCC’s Ecoworks social enterprise helps clients increase

their employability skills and provides them with paid work experience and training while protecting, rehabilitating, and enhancing the natural environment. Ecoworks has been hired by Langley Township to provide landscape maintenance services, which includes weeding, pruning, edging, and litter collection in medians and boulevards and at recreation centres, firehalls, the Langley Events Centre, the civic facility, and the operations centre. Ecoworks employees work under the guidance and close supervision of certified horticulturalists and experienced managers. Those in the program undergo various formal

training sessions and then get “hands-on work experience out in the trenches,” Siebert said. Besides receiving work experience in landscaping and horticulture, clients in Ecoworks also learn everything from road and traffic safety to first aid to power equipment safety training, and receive transportation endorsement tickets and flagging certificates. “We make sure they are safe and learn how to operate the equipment properly,” Siebert said, adding that clients also learn the skills necessary to find work. Instructors and supervisors act as mentors to the clients, teaching them life skills such as money management, and assisting with other barriers they may have to securing further employment. This can include anything from helping clients get a driver’s licence to assisting them with further education to improve their prospects. “We give them the opportunity and skills they need to take them forward,” Siebert said.” For more about Ecoworks or any other MCCBC program visit, or call James Siebert at 604-8596790. • More online at

Environmental awareness

Local companies get Climate Smart Otter Co-op was among a number of Langley companies recognized for their efforts to get Climate Smart. When the Otter Co-op came on board as a participant in the Township of Langley’s Climate Smart pilot project, operations manager Jack Nicholson knew his business was already on the right track. For years, the Co-op has been finding new and better ways to reduce its carbon footprint and help the environment, doing everything from switching to T-8 lighting in its retail centre, to installing programmable thermostats, to implementing energy-efficient motors in its feed mill compressors. “We are always looking for ways to be greener,” said Nicholson. “A lot of little things can be done to make a difference.” But taking part in Climate Smart – a pilot project offered by the Township of Langley, the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce, and Metro Vancouver – was an eye opener. Climate Smart is a Vancouver-based social enterprise that gives companies the tools they need to cut carbon and costs. The program is designed to teach business new methods for saving energy and dollars, and one of the first lessons learned was “what gets measured, gets managed,” Nicholson said. “We had to figure out what we had, measure it, and reduce it.” The exercise turned out to be a bit of a shocker. “When you see the number in black and white, it is eye-opening how much we spend on electricity, fuel, power, water,” he said. “It was a much bigger process than we expected.” Otter Co-op, which has been in business for almost 90 years, was one of 18 businesses within the Langley Township to sign up for the program. In the spring, Climate Smart delivered interactive training sessions and offered technical support to help participants create a greenhouse gas emission inventory and identify opportunities for reduction. Compiling the old gas, heating, and refrigeration bills was just the start for the Otter Co-op, which runs a retail store and feed centre on 248 Street, along with five gas bars, a hardware and feed outlet in Pitt Meadows, and a car wash in Ladner. “Pulling together the information was a lot of work,” said Nicholson, “but when the

Here’s another one of those columns I get to write that divulges another little piece about my past and the people in it. As a member of D.W. Poppy’s first-ever graduating class, in 1982 – and yes, for those who can do the math, that does reveal my approximate age – I had just a handful of close friends, and only two whom my teenage niece would classify as bffs (best friends forever). It turns out, as many of you know, that time and distance tend to form separations, and the friendships we thought were forever do fade. The fortunate thing is that I have not lost complete touch with one. In fact, I’ve written about her indirectly in this newspaper over the past few years, trumpeting the success of her daughter – Brookswood ballet dancer Melissa Johnston. Now, I get to herald the triumphs of another bff’s family member Bridget – this time a Houghton mother. I get to tell you about the recent promotion of Bridget Houghton, a familiar name to many in Langley’s real estate world over the past few decades. Mrs. Houghton, as I always respectfully called her, is promoted to general manager in one of the community’s largest and most established real estate offices, Royal LePage-Wolstencroft. I remember Wolstencroft from when I worked at the Langley Advance as a teenager.

Willowbrook mall’s Hands Up project gets big thumbs up Willowbrook Shopping Centre has won a Canadian Maple Leaf Gold Award for excellence in cause-related marketing. The International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) award, presented Oct. 6 in Toronto, recognized the Langley regional shopping centre’s Hands Up Canada project to support Canadian Paralympic athletes in the 2010 Paralympic Games. The campaign objectives included fundraising, education of communities across Canada about Paralympic sport, and generating support for national

athletes. The “Hands Up Canada” campaign originally featured 12 shopping centres, which grew in support to 30 Bentall LPmanaged centres across Canada. School outreach programs educated 10,134 Canadian children on Paralympic sport. Awareness stretched beyond the shopping centres, as visual displays are now on exhibit at both the B.C. and Alberta Sports Halls of Fame. The website was a key marketing vehicle for public awareness and communication, receiv-

ing more than 80,800 visits. Bentall employees united to drive grassroots awareness and raised $85,000 for the cause, 240 per cent beyond their goal. Now in its 26th year, the ICSC awards gala offers insight to the entire industry on what it takes to achieve the highest levels of accomplishment and success in Canadian retail marketing and design. “We are honoured and very proud to be acknowledged by industry peers,” said Bentall LP regional marketing director Bonney Rempel.

Flooding: Preventative Maintenance While Township crews routinely inspect culvert trash racks and storm systems to make sure they are functioning efficiently, conditions can change rapidly during storm season. You can do your part to reduce flooding risks by completing some of these simple preventative maintenance measures: • Clear nearby curbs and catch basins of leaves and debris, especially during heavy rain, as water running off the street will carry more leaves and debris into the curb. • Do not rake leaves from your property or boulevard onto the street or into open ditches. • Collect and compost leaves on-site or bag them for future pick-up. • Clear debris that has collected in driveway culverts resulting in blockages and check ditches in front of your property for blockages. • Clear snow off nearby curbs and off catch basins.

Waste management

Disposal business shines new light on recycling Edmonds Recycling takes used lights, lamps, and ballasts.

by Roxanne Hooper When Thomas Edison first introduced the light bulb in the late 1870s, it’s unlikely the famous scientist and American inventor imagined an entire industry being created around the disposal of those bulbs. But such a green business exists in downtown Langley, and it’s literally growing in leaps and bounds, said computer geek turned selfproclaimed recycling hound Scott MacKinnon. Steve Pal has been working indirectly in the recycling business for years as owner of Edmonds Batteries – a company with three automotive battery sales and recycling outlets in the Lower Mainland – including one on Industrial Avenue in Langley. So helping create a subsidiary

company called Edmonds Recycling wasn’t a giant leap for Pal. But it was a bit more of a stretch for MacKinnon, who partnered with Pal in November 2008 to initially divert a glut of household batteries destined for the landfills. “We noticed some gaps in the way things were being recycled, some needs – if you will,” MacKinnon said. And while the subsidiary of Edmonds Batteries started by focusing on the household batteries, today the majority of business is focused on recycling fluorescent lights, lamps, and ballasts for businesses and institutions from throughout the Lower Mainland. It’s been a heck of a ride for MacKinnon, who explained how the business grew and completely changed direction in just a few short years. When he was initially calling on clients to dispose of the household batteries, MacKinnon kept hearing the same questions: “Since you do this, do you know what we can do with these?” referring to the fluorescent lights and tubes.

Recycle Your Old TV And Save On Your Energy Bills

Recycling is not just for paper and plastic anymore. Now you can also recycle your old TVs, computers, monitors, printers and fax machines – and save money at the same time. “Most people don’t know that the extra TV they’ve got sitting upstairs in the guest room where it gets used maybe once a year is actually costing them money every day,” says BC Hydro’s Kari Reid, Program Manager in Residential Marketing. “As long as that TV is plugged in – whether it’s turned on or not – it’s using energy. And it’s adding up on their electricity bills.” Virtually all electronic devices – TVs, computers, printers, modems, DVD players, cell phone chargers and anything else with a clock, timer, adapter, memory or remote control – continue to draw power even when they’re not in use. With the average Canadian home today boasting more than 25 electronic devices, you can bet that at least some of those devices remain plugged in, even when they’re old or broken. But just tossing your out-of-date electronics in the local landfill is not the answer. “TVs, like computers and other electronics, have components that should be recycled,” says Kari. “The best thing is to take your unused electronics to a Return-It™ Electronics recycling depot, where they will get broken down safely and properly.” The Return-It™ Electronics recycling program is managed by Encorp Pacific (Canada) on behalf of the Electronics Stewardship Association of British Columbia. The ESABC established the program in 2007 (in addition to its Return-It™ Beverage and Milk Container recycling programs) to respond to the fast-growing issue of e-waste. “New and better products keep coming on the market all the time,” says Kari, “and we’re snapping them up. Who

High-intensity discharge (HID) lamps are among the many lighting products handled by Edmonds, explained operations manager Scott MacKinnon. “We found that there was a really big need, when we got into this end of the business,” MacKinnon said, noting that because of mercury content in fluorescent bulbs, they cannot just be thrown into the garbage. “Most four-foot tubes or compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) contain anywhere from four to 50 milligrams of mercury each. Now Advertorial

that may not seem like much, but that may be about 580 pounds of mercury per year in Canada alone that seeps into our groundwater,” he explained. “Animals and humans alike may ingest mercury allowing it into the blood stream, body tissue and organs. Mercury remains in our body and does not dissipate. It is a known carcinogen [cancer-

causing substance] which has long-term health and potentially life threatening effects. We have the solution to this environmental disaster,” MacKinnon said. While a provincial program called LightRecycle started up July 1 to dispose safely of the burned-out fluorescent lights used for residential purposes (up to 16 bulbs), there was still a gap for companies needing to get rid of large quantities. Recognizing a lack of options for bulk bulb recycling – while also realizing their efforts in household battery recycling was about to dry up July 1, 2010 ,when the province introduced free recycling for that commodity – the need to transition the small company was apparent, MacKinnon said. While the parent company still does large quantity automotive battery recycling, Edmonds Recycling has redirected its focus almost exclusively on the lights – working not so much with individual residents but government agencies, large employers, property developers, and other clients who are dealing with hundreds and thousands of lights. continued on page A21…

doesn’t want a sleek new flat-screen TV? But some people are just throwing their outdated electronics in the trash, or simply putting them in a drawer or a closet because they don’t know what else to do with them. Some people, too, are just moving them to another room where they stay plugged in but unused – which is just wasting energy. We want to see unused electronics unplugged, then disposed of properly.” “Once you’ve done that,” says Kari, “there are a number of other things you can do to reduce your energy use.” For example: ! Plug all your related electronics, like your computer, modem, monitor and printer, into a single power bar, then switch them all off at once when you’re not using them. ! Switch to a laptop. A typical laptop computer uses approximately 55 kwh/year compared to a typical desktop and monitor that uses approximately 290 kwh/yr. ! Unplug your cell phone and other chargers as soon as the battery is topped up. ! If you’re in the market for a new TV, look for one with the ENERGY STAR® label – it will use as much as 50 per cent less energy than a less-efficient model. ! As a general rule, the larger the TV the more energy it uses. Make sure your TV is the right size for your room by dividing the distance between where you’ll be sitting and the front of the screen by 2.5. “It can take more electricity per year to keep your DVD player in standby mode than it actually uses playing DVDs,” says Kari. “Unplug it or turn it off at a power bar and you’ll save energy. And as I said before, get rid of your unused TV! If just one in 10 households in British Columbia recycled just one unused television, it would save enough energy to provide all of Squamish with electricity for more than a year.” To find out more about the Return-It electronics recycling program or to find a recycling depot near you, please visit

Encorp’s School Recycling Program makes fundraising as easy as ABC

Since 2000, about 33 million containers have been recycled, and Encorp has refunded more than $2 million in deposit refunds to participating BC schools.


Encorp’s BC School Recycling Program provides elementary and high schools with the tools and resources to make recycling easy, convenient and profitable. Schools keep 100% of the deposit for each container collected and the program costs them nothing. Elementary and high schools from all parts of British Columbia are encouraged to participate. The schools and the environment both benefit from this popular program. Schools find it’s an easy way to fundraise for special projects like field trips. Keeping beverage containers out of landfills saves precious resources within our environment. The containers are recycled and used as raw material. For example, drink boxes are mashed into paper pulp which is used to make cardboard boxes and toilet paper. Thousands of tonnes of paper pulp are recovered in this process. And for every RECYCLING AT SCHOOL REALLY PAYS OFF

George Pringle Elementary (Westbank) began the 2009/10 school year with a 5 day bottle drive. It was such a success that they decided to collect containers on a monthly basis. One day in every month, parents dropped off their bags and boxes of containers at the school. The grade 6 students and Vice-Principal volunteered to collect juice boxes and other containers from classrooms. This year, the Parent Advisory Committee and teachers decided that the funds from deposit refunds would go towards a year end field trip to Vancouver. They’ve found that recycling is a great way to save the environment while raising money for things that are important to everyone at their school.


Return-It Man, along with his Super Sidekick, visits elementary schools across the province, educating students about recycling beverage containers and electronics. Their fun and entertaining presentation explains how containers are recycled and what they are recycled into. Kids get to actively participate in the presentation and even receive an activity book with a reuseable lunch bag to take home with them.

tonne of paper pulp recycled, approximately 17 trees are saved. Since the program’s inception in 2000, about 33 million containers have been recycled, and Encorp has refunded more than $2 million in deposit refunds to participating BC schools. In the 2009/2010 school year alone, 365 schools (153,334 students) who participated in Encorp’s School Recycling Program raised over $291,000 and they kept over 4.6 million beverage containers out of BC landfills. Encorp’s easy to use web application allows schools to keep a running total of their own returns and compare their totals to other schools. It also features a blogging page where they can share ideas about recycling at school. Throughout the year, registered schools are provided with newsletters to update them on the progress of the program. They’re also eligible to receive free recycling bins and bags to help them collect containers. Encorp has spiced things up by adding an extra incentive. Schools who collect the most containers per student are awarded bonus cash prizes. The contest is designed to allow similarly sized schools across the province to compete against each other in respective categories. Each year, a total of $13,500 is split between the top three schools in each of the nine categories. In addition to the collection contest each year, Encorp holds other draws and contests where students can get creative to win their schools even more cash prizes. What’s more, award certificates are given to individual students and groups to recognize exceptional dedication to helping our environment. Each year provides schools with a brand new opportunity to fundraise. Distributing flyers and collecting containers from surrounding areas is also a great way for schools to develop and foster relationships within their communities. School spirit really pays off thanks to Encorp’s BC School Recycling Program. So start fundraising the easy way! Register your school today at

Board game

Fort featured in ‘Earthopoly’ by Christina Toth Postmedia Network Inc. Fort Langley, the Fraser Valley, and the Stave Lake Dam are some of the locations featured in an eco-centric board game offered by B.C. Hydro to get families engaged in power-saving habits. B.C. Hydro is releasing the limited edition game, called Earthopoly: Team Power Smart Edition, to mark October as Power Smart Month. But you have to be a Team Power Smart member to buy one. Everyone in B.C. can join by going to the website. Once you’re a member, you will have access to special offers such as Eartholopy. “More than 250,000 British Columbians have already joined Team Power Smart and have made a commitment to reduce their energy consumption by at least 10 per cent. We would like to build on that even further,” said Lisa Coltart, executive director of Power Smart and Customer Care, B.C. Hydro. “We recognize the importance of keeping people engaged and providing new conservation solutions and ideas. This limited edition of Earthopoly provides a great way for families and friends to have some fun while reinforcing those positive practises.” Set up like Monopoly, players pay for bad energy practises, such as leaving computers on all the time, and earn kudos and carbon credits for good habits, such as recycling. Bad choices get players sent to the landfill.

BC Hydro has unveiled a limited edition game called Earthopoly, that is only available for purchase by Team Power Smart members. The game has educational information on conservation as well as brief histories about the province. For example, players will learn that the Sto:lo people were the first settlers in the Fraser Valley more than 10,000 years ago. Board game developer Late for the Sky says the game is made from recyclable paper, vegetable oil-based ink, and game pieces are either made by nature or completely recyclable. The outer wrapping is made from Earthfirst PLA film, which is a bio-plastic. Team Power Smart members can buy the collector’s item game until Dec. 31, while quantities last. The limited editions cost of the game is $19.99, plus tax, with discounts available for games purchased in bulk. Shipping is free. For more details visit and sign up as a Team Power Smart member.

Waste management

Drop-off helps residents get rid of hazardous materials They can be found under the sink, in the laundry room, out in the garage or shed, or tucked away under the porch or somewhere in the backyard. Many homes harbour all kinds of dangerous chemicals, and the toxic products can stay there for years – usually because people don’t know how to dispose of them. To help with the dilemma, the Township of Langley is once again holding a collection event that will allow residents to rid their homes of hazardous waste. The annual Household Hazardous Waste Drop-Off Event will be held Saturday and

Sunday, Oct. 23 and 24, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days, at the Township of Langley Operations Centre, 4700 224th St. The drop-off is free to Township residents. Proof of residency is required. “If you have a product at home that has a skull and cross bones, flames, a skeleton hand, or an explosion on the label, the product is considered toxic, flammable, or corrosive, or contains reactive components,” said Debbie Fleming, the Township’s solid waste coordinator. “They are hazardous waste, and special care must be taken to dispose of them properly.”

Demand growing rapidly …continued from page A19 An electrical contractor, for instance, recently retrofitted the University of B.C. and had to dispose of 10,000 bulbs and turned to Edmonds Recycling for help. The demand has grown so rapidly, that Edmonds Recycling has expanded its physical operation twice since its inception. MacKinnon started off operating the new business from the side of an office desk at Edmonds Batteries. About a year ago, the business graduated to its own space – a single-bay warehouse in the same Industrial Avenue complex. “Almost instantly, we couldn’t even move in there… it was crazy,” he explained. “We were bursting at the seams.” Last month, given the evolution of the business and a desperate need for more space, Edmonds Recycling moved to a threebay warehouse nearby. At present, MacKinnon explained, the bulbs are crushed locally and sent to a company in Seattle to have the metal and mercury separated out. Within six months, however, he plans to introduce that same equipment on site in Langley, and MacKinnon is already wondering if their new 3,000-square-foot warehouse and yard will be big enough. This green business is growing, not only in premises, but staff. MacKinnon isn’t working the business solo, anymore.

He’s joined by three other full-time staffers, along with three truck drivers who are shared between the recycling and battery businesses. “Every year in Canada, nationally there’s a little more than 60 million fluorescent lamps replaced, and only seven to 10 per cent are currently being recycled properly,” MacKinnon explained, noting he’s currently attempting to position the Langley company to service more of that demand. While the concentration of his relatively new business has been focused in the Lower Mainland to date, efforts are now afoot to reach out to Vancouver Island, the B.C. Interior, Northern B.C., Alberta, and eventually across Canada. “Any light bulb you can think of, we can recycle,” he said, pointing to fluorescent lamps, tubes, and compact fluorescent lights, as well as neon and halogen bulbs.

Many of those old items that you don’t know where or how to throw out will be accepted at Langley Township’s hazardous waste drop-off next weekend.

Warehouse coordinator Allen Miller fed bulbs into the E-Lampinator, which safely captures all mercury vapour as it crushes any type of fluorescent bulb or tube.

Fleming said such products should not be poured down the drain or on the ground, thrown in the garbage, burned, or buried. Caution must be used when getting rid of the products, which is why the Township’s annual drop-off event is generally such a success. People do not need to hold on to hazardous waste and wait for the annual event. Many places in the community, such as recycling and bottle depots, accept the products year-round, and the public is encouraged to make use of them.

That looks old. You should have someone look at it! by Heather Colpitts


t’s been passed down through the family, along with the story about how it came into great granddad’s possession. But it is authentic and it is valuable? Those sorts of questions will be answered at the Your Antiques Attic show this Sunday in the Fort Langley Community Hall. The Langley Centennial Museum in Fort Langley is offering up expert appraisals of antique, vintage, and collectible items for people curious to know more. The museum, itself chock full of pieces of Langley’s past, is looking to help people solve the mysteries surrounding people’s collected treasures. “We have a number of appraisers in different disciplines,” explained museum services manager John Robertson. “…it’s pretty much an Antiques Roadshow format.” People will be told as much as possible about the history of the item and will be asked about its provenance (history with the owner). As well, they’ll be given an approximate value. Robertson said for most people, the value is secondary to finding out about the piece. “For the most part, they’re just curious about it,” he said. And unfortunately some people will come away learning their treasure is not quite what they thought it was. Family oral history pegs it as one thing, but the experts can give a truer picture. He also points to the explosion in popularity of Second World War memorabilia.

How to win

Julie’s pal Danielle Spampinato is a dual citizen who relocated from Washington to Langley determined to launch her acting career on Canada’s West Coast. Spampinato was honoured to be cast as Mrs. Antrobus, the force that keeps the family together. “Her sole purpose in life is to give her children the best of everything… to make the world a better place for them,” explained Spampinato, who has cultivated her own maternal instinct volunteering at orphanages in Nicaragua and Bangladesh. The production is aptly timed, according to Konrad, who also chairs the theatre department of TWU’s School of the Arts, Media, and Culture. “This season coincides with the launch of SAMC and a BFA acting program unlike any other in Canada. With The Skin of our Teeth, we’re bringing to life an epic tale about starting anew. It’s off the wall, it’s larger

n the eve of Mr. and Mrs. Antrobus’ four thousandth anniversary, family bonds face their ultimate test in a wild eruption of scandal, war, and disaster. Trinity Western University’s newly minted SAMC Theatre is presenting Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning comedy The Skin of our Teeth, starting next week, and Langley Advance readers have a chance to win tickets. “History is no match for the human spirit in this epic tale of hope, courage, and complete absurdity,” said awardwinning director Angela Konrad. “Wilder was a pioneer and his innovation in this show is particularly satisfying,” said Konrad, a Jessie-winner. “Spanning thousands of years, turning sets upside down… The world of the play is delightfully wacky and unpredictable. And then suddenly its rich and poignant themes sneak up on you when you aren’t looking.” By turns absurd and profound, the story places the burden of saving the world – repeatedly – on the shoulders of one family that’s anything but ordinary. Between milking the pet mammoth and inventing the alphabet, the Antrobuses have an odd knack for outwitting global destruction. But when the most shocking disaster of all threatens to tear the family apart, history’s most unlikely heroes must decide: Is humanity worth saving? The play, which TIME Magazine likens to “a philosophy class conducted in a monkey house,” has also been a thrilling challenge for a talented pair of Langley thespians who were both accepted into TWU’s inaugural bachelor of fine arts class last spring. Julie Casselman, who played Celia in last season’s As You Like It, is getting in touch with her inner femme fatale as Sabina – the family maid with a hidden agenda. “I’ve never played a character quite as fierce and dynamic as Sabina… she’ll do or say anything to get what she wants,” Casselman said.

Dr. Hubert wrote since his own high-school age children took shark liver oil they have no more colds. Dr. Haimes’s grandchildren have been taking shark liver oil for 6 months and he writes they have no more infection of any kind. Read on the Bell website: “I had 3-4 flus every winter. None last 5 years.” “Amazing! All of us have no more colds.” “No more asthma, no puffer, no cold, no flus, changed my life”. In North America this is a by-product from the restaurant industry. No sharks are caught for their liver or their cartilage.

song. The first single Aaron Pritchett from the album, Light It Up, is set to be released soon. But in the meantime, this weekend is a big deal for the CCMA award winner and Juno nominee. He’s up for five – actually six – awards this weekend. He’s up for entertainer of the year, the fan’s choice award, male vocalist of the year, as well as single of the year and songwriter of the year, for Nothing But Us. He’s also up for an industry award, which will be revealed during a separate ceremony on Saturday at Coquitlam. Pritchett’s new website (which he’s been spending a lot of time updating) has put him on the shortlist. That’s pretty cool news for Langley. But it gets better. In conjunction with the BCCMAs, Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s Langley campus is playing host to two music industry seminars this weekend. Angela Kelman is hosting a vocal seminar on Saturday, from noon to 1:30 p.m., and those interested in reserving a seat can call 604-533-5088. But the most interest seems to be generated by a three-hour seminar on Sunday afternoon hosted by Canadian actor, singer, and music producer Tom Jackson. The 61-year-old is probably best known for his annual series of Christmas concerts called Huron Carole, which he created and starred in for 17 years. But he’s also helped artists such as Taylor Swift, Jars of Clay, Michelle Wright, and Jordin Sparks engage and exceed the audience’s expectations – and it’s his recent work not as a record producer but a live show producer that is bringing him to town now. He’ll lead a session called Foundations for a Great Live Show, teaching techniques for live shows that create fans for life. “Tom makes a major impact… he’s a true creative partner who helps realize the artist’s full performance potential,” said producer Matt Serletic (Santana, Celine Dion, Aerosmith, Matchbox Twenty, and Rob Thomas). Again, registration for this seminar and more information is available online at, or by calling 604-533-5088. • More online at, click on “Entertainment”

Earl Milsap and Harold Westerlund enjoyed grand opening celebrations this past weekend for Avalon Gardens, a seniors complex in Murrayville.

Nancy Teichgraf/Langley Advance


Housing has come a long way Modern seniors housing is a mix of good looks and practical amenities.




any seniors are reluctant to give up their homes and move into a seniors’ complex. Harold Westerlund was one of those. When he learned about Avalon Gardens in Murrayville, he thought he would keep his residence, but try Avalon for one month. Within a week, he was convinced that the new complex was the place for him, particularly because of the ability to socialize while still maintaining independence. He makes use of the health facilities, and said it’s knocked 10 years off his life. The facility has a vibration muscle machine that he’s finding helpful. As well the treadmill is helping him overcome problems with his hips and thighs and has convinced him of the old adage “move it or lose it.”

Fitness facilities were just one of the amenities to accommodate the needs of Avalon’s residents. There’s also an extensive security system, grab bars, handicapped accessibility, sound reduction construction and more. But builder Marvin Job, of MDM Construction, took a personal interest in this transitional living facility, which is now home to his parents. So in addition to building in the added features that help seniors, he also wanted to make it a lovely place for them to live. Hence the granite counters, maple cabinets, and a great deal of attention devoted to the common areas. Going into the main entry feels like going into a ballroom, with its spiral staircase and slate rock wall waterfall. As more and more of the population ages, developers are realizing that they need to combine practicality with beauty.

Speak Up. Speak Out supports flood victims

by Matthew Claxton


here’s a great distance between a comfortable life in Canada and the ongoing tragedy taking place in flood-ravaged Pakistan. That distance is what makes musician Zaac Pick eager to help. “You don’t get to choose where you’ve been born,” Pick told the Langley Advance. The luck and privilege of living in Canada comes with an obligation to help out those who aren’t so fortunate. Hence, Pick will be the first artist headlining a concert for Speak Up. Speak Out: Artists Changing the World. The concert will be held this Saturday, Oct. 16, at the Water Shed Arts Cafe in Walnut Grove, at 20349 88th Ave. A longtime supporter of World Vision, the Cloverdale resident said he’s been interested in social justice and helping others since a high school trip to Mexico. His class helped build homes and shelters for desperately poor people who lived on the fringes of garbage dumps. “It’s a pretty big eye opener when you’re 14 or so,” Pick said. At the same time that he was having his eyes opened to the plight of others, Pick was pursuing a musical evolution that began when he was a small child. His earliest memories of growing up in Medicine Hat, Alta., are of his father

Zaac Pick of Cloverdale will perform a benefit concert Saturday for victims of the recent Pakistan floods. playing the guitar after the kids had gone to bed. An organ left to the family by a grandmother provided one of his first instruments, with Pick playing with its drum machine. “Then I realized organ wasn’t really a cool instrument to be into as a kid,” he said. He moved on to lessons on violin, viola and piano, before picking up a guitar at the age of about 12. In 2002, Pick moved to the west coast and settled down in Langley. He joined a band called Doubting Paris, and spent the next several years touring and recording. While the band never picked up a label contract for longer than a few weeks, they toured Canada, the U.S. and even Europe, opening for bands

such as Keene. It was in Europe that Pick picked up his unusually-spelled first name, a Danish variant on its original spelling of Zach. The band never really broke up, but a couple of years ago, the members decided to take an extended break. Several band members helped him create his first solo EP, the well-received Fierce Winds EP. While everyone in Doubting Paris had done writing, it was a very collaborative process, Pick said. When he sat down to write the songs that would become Fierce Winds, it was the first time in a long time that he’d worked alone. At first, the freedom felt great, he said. “It didn’t take too long until I missed having that input around,” he said. Pick recently won the Shore 104 Sounds of Summer contest with a song from the disc, and it has been getting solid reviews. Several songs from the disc have been turning up on TV shows such as Ghost Whisperer or One Tree Hill. Saturday’s Speak Up. Speak Out event will be held from 7:30 to 10 p.m. A $10 donation to World Vision’s flood relief will get you in the door, and along with Pick, some other musical guests and information on the floods will be shown. • More online at, click on “Entertainment”

Arts in brief

Village hosts artists’ showcase by Roxanne Hooper



etween 25 and 30 artists from the Fraser Valley will be displaying their paintings in the Fort Langley Community Hall this Sunday, and art lovers are being encouraged to drop by for a boo. The one-day show, held every fall by the Port Kells Art Club, features all new works from club members who paint in a variety of mediums from oils and water colours, to pastels and acrylic, as well as mixed mediums. While the theme for this year’s show is Colourful Impressions 2010, Aldergrove resident and show coordinator Gwen Murphy explained that the theme is always very broad, allow-

ing artists a choice on the subject matter. For Murphy, for instance, she’ll have a few of her newer, stylized and bold-coloured landscapes on display after making the switch from watercolours to acrylics less than two years ago. “Some people just love to look at paintings, they might not buy, but they come and soak up the atmosphere and enjoy some of the talent that is out there,” said Murphy. She noted these and most art club shows tend to be more of a public art exhibition than sale, although all paintings and also some cards are traditionally available for purchase. This fall show will feature a variety of framed and unframed canvasses of varying sizes, from artists primarily in the Langley and Surrey areas, but also contributors from Abbotsford and Mission. This fall show runs Sunday, Oct. 17, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the main floor of the community hall on Glover Road in the heart of the Fort Langley village. For more about the show, the club, its workshops, or monthly meetings, email or call 604-857-1994.

n incredible night of choral music is expected to change the lives of Langley children who might not otherwise be able to afford music lessons or instruments. For the fourth year in a row, Rotary Club of Langley Central is gearing up to host a giant musical celebration at the Christian Life Assembly, and in doing so raise money for youngsters who might not otherwise be able to pursue their passion for music because of financial limitations, explained event organizer and Rotarian Liz Burton. “I’m hopeful this will take off… We can touch a lot of lives with it,” said Burton, who hopes to fill 1,400 seats at $25 a pop on Thursday, Nov. 18. This show, which originally started as a choral competition, has since evolved into a music festival. This year, the twohour show will feature The Vancouver Chamber Choir, the Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir, and Pacific Showtime. And guests will be greeted as they enter the hall by music from the Langley Music School Quartet. Last year’s event generated $5,000 for the cause. This year, Burton hopes to well exceed that figure, committing about 3/4 of all money raised to a series of music bursaries, scholarships, and programs and the other quarter to general Rotary projects.

No worries about lichens, moss “When and how do I collect arugula seedpods. How would I dry them? Should I hang them over newspaper? “I really don’t know. I’ve never done it. But I’d like to try.”


Jean Munier, Burnaby ou can pick the seedpods as soon as they’re brown or yellow and feel dry to the touch. But if your arugula is where rain can soak the seedpods, move them into a dry place or cut stems about 30 centimetres (12 inches) long and bring them inside to dry. Once they’re dry, pick the pods and put them in a paper bag. Hang it up in a warm place. The bag must be paper, not plastic. Plastic holds in moisture, which results in mould and rot. The pods will release the seeds, which will fall to the bottom of the bag. If the seeds are slow to release, shake the bag. Some of the pods may fragment, and you’ll need to remove the bits (called chaff) by dumping the seed and chaff on a plate and gently blowing while you tilt the plate back and forth. The seeds roll downward, and the chaff tends to float away. Arugula is an easy species for seed-saving. It’s a prolific seeder, and the seed stores well and germinates quickly and easily. It often seeds in place outside, and you get loads of seedlings – whether you want them or not.

They simply use the tree as a place to live. Moss and lichens gain their nutriment from light and moisture. They take nothing from the tree. In a sense, they are perching on the tree just as birds do. But some people find them aesthetically displeasing. Occasionally, someone dislikes the appearance so that much they wash them off. That doesn’t harm the tree, either, but it is quite a lot of work. And typically, they tend to recur – sometimes the very next year.

Sawyer has become a rock ‘n’ roll icon and a “staple on classic rock radio,” he elaborated.

he 310-seat Chief Sepass Theatre is expected to be sold out when it plays host to the first-of-its-kind Heritage Matters fundraiser concert on Sunday. The 7 p.m. concert will feature local young singing celebrity Cole Armour, as well as Ryan Fass, father-and-son team Carl and Joel Kory, and Liana Savard, all coming together to help raise money for heritage preservation, explained Kurt and Brenda Alberts. The husband-and-wife team is promoting this concert, and Brenda said tickets have been snapped up by people keen to enjoy some “outstanding” local performers and to help improve the Willoughby Community Hall. “In the early 1920s, the settlers in the Willoughby area decided to build a hall to hold the classes for local students. In order to raise funds, they held Saturday night dances in various homes, with a portable gramophone and records being carried around to provide music,” Kurt recounted from local historians and records. “These evenings were a success,” he said, “and John Bray donated the land for the hall.”

Classes were held there until Willoughby Elementary School opened in 1931. The original hall, built in 1924, was replaced by the current structure that officially opened with festivities on Jan. 14, 1938. Kurt Alberts “Built as a comConcert promoter munity cooperative effort, the hall is still owned and operated by the Willoughby Hall Society,” Kurt said. But he noted the entire Willoughby area is subject to urban development, and a proposed project adjacent to the hall will include restoration of the hall, including creation of a new foundation. Langley Heritage Society has also committed to further improvements for the hall, in memory of long-time Willoughby volunteers Shirley and Roy Baker. And in an effort to afford that goal, this weekend’s concert is expected to raise some significant coin, Brenda added. All seats are $30, and the last few tickets (if there are still any available after press time) can be acquired at Birthplace of BC Gallery at 604-882-1191.

Air pistol shooting

Ludwig bronzed at Commonwealth Games

The Langley resident and her sister Lynda Hare came very close to winning the gold medal in 10-metre air pistol pairs competition.

Langley resident Dorothy Ludwig and her sister Lynda Hare, of Calgary, were on target at the XIX Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India. Profiled in the Sept. 21 Langley Advance [Shooting sisters target Commonwealth success], the siblings claimed bronze on Tuesday in the 10-metre air pistol pairs competition, giving Canada its third shooting medal of the Games. The Canadians actually shared top spot with India’s Heena Sidhu and Annu Raj Singh and Australia’s Dina Aspandiyarova and Pamela McKenzie, but lost

out in the tiebreak system. “To win a medal with Lynda makes it extra special,” said Ludwig. “For a moment you think that if I could have just got one more 10, we’d have won the gold but we are both ecstatic with the result,” Hare said. “We were confident going into the competition and, in the end, our consistent shooting won us a bronze which is absolutely fantastic.” The 31-year-old Ludwig is no stranger to Commonwealth success. At the 2002 Commonwealth

Games in Manchester, England, she won individual silver, as well as team gold along with partner Kim Eagles. Ludwig’s achievement at the

Games in Delhi caught the attention of B.C. Premier Gordon Campbell. “Congratulations to Dorothy Ludwig of Langley, who collected bronze in the women’s pairs 10-metre air pistol shooting event,” the Premier said. In the women’s 10m air pistol singles competition held on Wednesday, Hare placed sixth while Ludwig ended up in eighth place. Canada finished the Games fourth place overall with 75 medals (26 gold, 17 silver and 32 bronze).

QB’s homecoming memorable

The Stamps’ quarterback was key in beating Richmond, and keeping his team undefeated. Langley Stampeders’ quarterback Cody Nelson threw for 103 yards and ran for another 88 yards and two touchdowns to lead his team to a 389 victory over the host Richmond Raiders Sunday. For Nelson, it was a special game as he grew up in Richmond playing football at a young age, and returning to Minoru Park to play against some of his ex-teammates was something he was looking forward to. The game started slowly with Langley’s defence shutting down the Raiders’ opening drive. On the Stamps’ first possession, they drove the ball to the Raiders’ 29-yard line where Kalen McMurchy – who plays running back, defensive back and kicker – booted a 36-yard field goal. The rest of the quarter was a defensive stalemate with both defences shutting down the opposing offences. The Stamps’ defence – led by linebackers, Andrew Toth, and Johnny Vleeming, and another Richmond native, Dylan McQuistin – shut down any offensive threat the Raiders could muster. In the second quarter, the Stamps hit their stride. On their second possession of the quarter, Langley’s offense began to drive the ball. After key runs by running back Matt Berg, Nelson capitalized by hitting slot backs Luke Andrews (31 yards) and Jordan Zagar (21 yards) on the drive, before capping it himself by scoring from the one-yard line.


The Raiders came back to bring the score close on their next possession, with a long touchdown pass and a two-point conversion to narrow the margin to 10-8. But that was short-lived as the Stamps again drove the field with their power offence ripping off large chunks of yardage courtesy of running backs Berg and Jorge Valle. Fullback Cory Constantin capped off the last play of the quarter with a 12-yard touchdown run, making the score 17-8 at the half. The second half was all Langley. The Stamps took their first offensive possession of the half 87 yards on three plays, with Nelson finding Zagar on a pretty 51-yard pass-andrun for a touchdown score. With Langley’s defence continuing its season-long strong play, its offence kept rolling. Constantin, on a 27-yard run, and Nelson, on a nifty 41-yard run, added majors in the fourth quarter to put the game out of reach. The win puts the undefeated 6-0 Stampeders alone atop the Vancouver Mainland Football League division standings. The Stamps have a bye this week and will resume play Oct. 24 versus the expansion Burnaby Lions. Bantam Mustangs The Langley Mustangs continued their winning ways on Thanksgiving Monday, with a convincing 58-0 drubbing of the North Surrey Panthers at McLeod Athletic Park. All three facets of the Mustangs’ game contributed on the scoreboard. Behind the strong outside blocking of offensive tackles Dalton Dietrich, Chris Schwartz, and Clayton Frolich, the Mustangs were able to score six touchdowns

along the ground. Leading the way was Reagan Doucette with three touchdowns rushes, while Matt Bilmer recorded a pair of touchdown runs, and Eric Brown added a major score in the victory. On the defensive side of the ball, the Panthers were able to move the ball against the Mustangs, but every time they threatened to break the shutout, the Langley defence came up with big plays to snuff out North Surrey drives, while also putting points on the board themselves. The Mustangs recorded five interceptions on the day, and Brown and Doucette were able to convert their pick-offs into touchdowns with long returns. Cameron Kaulback, Peter Woods, and Jeremy McLean also recorded interceptions. Nick Kravetz led the Mustangs in tackles with four: Justin Brown, Austyn Riendeau, and Ben Ferguson all notched key tackles during the game. The Mustangs’ special teams unit recorded its first major of the season, as Doucette fielded a punt around midfield and took it all the way for a touchdown midway through the first quarter. Langley will look to remain unbeaten Sunday, when they host the 1-5 Richmond Raiders. Kickoff at MAP is 1:30 p.m. Atom Broncos The 4-1 Langley Broncos faced their toughest competition yet this season on

Thanksgiving Monday. On the opposite sidelines stood the unbeaten, 5-0 Cloverdale Panthers who, over the last five games, have scored an average of more than 30 points per game. The Panthers came out strong in the first quarter, utilizing their double-wing running play with the hopes of either confusing the Broncos or, at the very least, overpowering their Langley foes. But Langley’s defence held strong and only allowed one touchdown late in the first quarter and another major score in the second quarter. The Broncos adjusted its defensive coverage during the second half of the game, while developing a drive from their own 50yard line after Silas Abbot covered up the ball on a short kick attempt from the Panthers. That set up Jack Laurin on the 35-yard line, as he took a reverse hand-off for a touchdown, to put the Broncos on the board. The Broncos’ defence shut down the Panthers at that point, and didn’t allow them to score during the third quarter with strong defensive plays from Kallum Simpson, Aiden Simms, Zack Gemakis, and Russell Gilroy. In the last dying minutes of the game, the Panthers put together one more drive for a touchdown and convert to make the final score 20-6, as Cloverdale’s perfect season continues.

North Langley Minor Football

Bears deep-six Niners

Running back Brandon Sang couldn’t be held down by the Mission defence. A trio of North Langley Bears’ football teams played Thanksgiving Monday at Walnut Grove Secondary’s athletic field. Two of the North Langley squads had much to be thankful for after coming away as victors over the visiting Mission Niners. Junior Bantam Brandon Sang had an outstanding game for the “JB” Bears during their 38-18 win over Mission. Sang’s hard-running style wore down the Mission defenders, as he ploughed past would-be tacklers. On one play it appeared as though the Mission defence had him stopped, but he kept moving and managed to turn the corner for a great gain. He and Won-Jae Boo combined for several hundred yards of offence on the day. The score was close at halftime, with the Bears holding the edge thanks to the precision extra-point kicking by Cameron Sparkes. Meanwhile, the North Langley defence was sparked by sharp tackling and an interception by Colton Pierce. Another plus for the Bears was the play

of their offensive line, which helped open holes and opportunities for the running backs. The Bears also benefited from strong performances by quarterbacks Kenzie Oram, who led the offence in the first half, and Darian Pritchard, who took the helm for the second half. The win puts North Langley’s junior bantams in fourth place, good for a playoff spot if they can stay in the top four at season’s end. Peewee Versus Mission, the Bears scored a pair of touchdowns to lead 12-0 before Mission got on the board. Then, North Langley scored an additional major to make the final score 18-6. The Bears’ defence worked together to keep the Mission offence at bay. Bears’ touchdowns were scored by Zander Bailey, with two, and Brett Christiansen. Both players ran hard for the winning North Langley peewees. Atom The Bears suffered through a tough first half against the Mission Niners before finding their stride in the second half during a 32-6 loss. • More online at, click on “Sports”

SIMARD, CLAUDE 1927 - 2010

We regret to announce the passing of Claude Simard who left us quietly in his sleep on Oct 2nd, 2010. Claude will be forever in our memories and cherished by his remaining sister, Etienne Forest of Quebec. Claude was born in La Reine, Quebec, and quit school at the age of 13 to work in the lumber camps of north western Quebec in the winter, and local farms in the summer. After moving to Winnipeg he worked there until moving to B.C. where he worked in many vocations and became very active in Alcoholics Anonymous. Claude worked in the scrap metal industry in Prince Rupert and then moved to Langley where he operated his own ceramic business and worked in the metal housing manufacturing trade. From 2001 to his death he was the President and distributer of APL Oil Ltd. Claude touched many lives in his 48 year association with AA and was responsible for organizing many meetings and step groups. His smile and his dedication to his fellow man will be greatly missed. A memorial for Claude will be held Saturday, October 16th, at 2 P.M., at the Clayton Hall, 18513 – 70th Ave, Surrey. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Alcoholics Anonymous in Claude’s name.

SMALLMAN, Arthur 1916 - 2010

Art died peacefully at the George Derby Center in Burnaby, B.C. on October 3, 2010. He was predeceased by his loving wife, Margaret; brother Barney, sister Carmen and his daughter Heather (Walt Sherry) of 100 Mile House. He proudly served his country with the R.C.A.F,during the second world war. He was an executive of the National Fur Breeders Association. After retiring from mink ranching, he opened the Fort Langley Real Estate Company, helping many young families buy their first homes, by providing low-interest down payment loans. Later, as a mortgage broker, Art grew his business into what became “Baytree Capital Corporation”, a mortgage company in Langley, B.C. Art and Margaret were avid readers and travelers. He loved the arts, especially music. He had an inquiring mind; he appreciated women and he was a gentleman and a romantic. All the lines on his face were from smiling, he loved to laugh. When life slowed down for Art, he volunteered and continued his life of service with the Canadian Cancer Society, Meals On Wheels, Community Policing, Hospice and mentoring many young people. Art will be sadly missed by his daughters, Ainslie Thomson (Doug), of Duncan, Glenys Eis, of Langley and their families. Many other families, too numerous to name, were touched by his generosity and wisdom. The family wishes to thank the wonderful staff of The George Derby Center for their care, compassion and respect for Art in his last years. Also a special “thank you” to Mary for her hands-on love and care, for eating the canned soup and the white bread sandwiches he made for her and the photos she took, which captured the essence of the man.

Cancer June 21-July 22: This week, add one last brick to your security edifice. E.g., make a retirement fund contribution, repair the house, adjust a child’s direction, or simply get the winter larder stocked. (Apologies to southern hemi readers.) Next week, October’s slowly, quietly swelling romantic, creative, and pleasure trend will break into full bloom. Put your house in order before then. Sunday’s for mysteries, intimacies, finances. Wisdom, empathy arrive Monday/Tuesday. Be ambitious Wednesday to Friday, but be careful also: opposition lurks. Happiness and social delights arrive Friday night, Saturday! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The emphasis continues on communications, details, paperwork, errands, and casual acquaintances. Perform necessary tasks here quickly, now – Saturday will bring a month of domestic interests, and a sluggish ‘hibernation’ mood. You’ve already had a good taste of these domestic, homeoriented themes during September/October, but next week they will burgeon into full-fledged concerns, projects. Meanwhile, Sunday’s for relationships. Mysteries, successful intimate and financial actions fill Monday/Tuesday. Do your research: lucky discoveries await! Be wise Wednesday-Friday: dishonesty loses! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Continue to chase money, pay bills, search for viable smaller purchases. (Beware investments.) Enjoy and use the relative calm of this week – Saturday will begin a month of hectic (though happy) rushing. Tackle chores Sunday morning. Exciting meetings, lucky relationships and very valid opportunities arise Sunday night through Tuesday. Your investment, debt, intimate, sexual, lifestyle, health and subconscious zones come to the fore Wednesday to Friday. Take care here. Impulse might reward you Wednesday, but it sure won’t Thursday. Wisdom, gentle, mental love, travel Saturday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Try to seal any deals, sign agreements, bid for opportunities, schedule/plan a first meeting, or bump into that attractive stranger. Remain diplomatic, accent the needs and desires of others. Your secret, intimate side has been ‘awake’ for some weeks now; a powerful sexual liaison could occur – be honest, ethical. Make sure both parties are free to love. In practical or business links, profit awaits – and you have ‘the edge.’ Be social, flirty Sunday. Retreat, plan and deal with agencies Monday/Tuesday: lucky results!t You shine, energy rises Wednesday onward: step lightly, carefully! Taurus April 20-May 20: Relationship, relocation, contract, negotiation and similar opportunities continue. So far, every opportunity has contained a flaw, restriction or ‘attached burden.’ But from October 28 onward (into early next January) opportunities will tend not to have a ‘catch.’ Contemplate this before you jump on anything this week or early next. Waiting could be lucky! Use this week to clean up chores. Sunday accents your duties, prestige. Happiness, friends, optimism shine on you Monday/Tuesday. Rest, plan WednesdayFriday. Your energy returns Saturday: so does fresh air, new excitement! Gemini May 21-June 20: It’s your last week of romance, creative urges and speculative success, so pursue these. Pleasure is necessary: it re-invigorates us so we can face, succeed in, chores and drudgery (which will return this Saturday onward). Yes, your ‘romantic month’ so far hasn’t been free of health and work frustrations, and I can’t promise these are over. To some degree, it will be 2011 before your wishes can comettrue, or unalloyed happiness revisit. Before this ‘happiness period’ starts, there is one last duty, career effort or ‘status change’ you must engage in – these shine with luck Monday/Tuesday!

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness remain high. Your money/earnings luck is also good, through early January. Plan ahead – from next week through November you can capitalize on an old (or build a new) earnings project, especially if a partner is involved. (An old project/idea is better than a new.) Sunday morning’s for romance or a creative, sports, speculative or pleasure venture. Tackle chores this night to Tuesday – luck’s high, you could expand your employment or find another way to increase your income. Relationships excite yet have built-in obstacles Wednesday-Friday. Saturday’s sexy. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: It’s your last week of weariness, Scorpio. Saturday will bring a month of rising energy,charisma and effectiveness.Meanwhile, rest deeply (especially Sunday) contemplate and plan your future actions. Wrap up your dealings with government agencies or institutions. Expect creative, romantic or speculative luck Monday/Tuesday. But tackle chores Wednesday to Friday – carefully, and loyally. (Harmless ‘time off’ or a sensual temptation can dent your reputation.) Relationships, exciting meetings arrive Friday night, Saturday, just as a month of success and new starts arrives! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Enjoy this last week of celebration, wish fulfillment (and new wishes) optimism, popularity, flirtations and social delights – Saturday will bring a month of quietude and retreat. Run errands Sunday morning. Luck aids your efforts on domestic, real estate, security and ‘mother nature’ (e.g., gardening) fronts Monday/ Tuesday. Family members say/do things that bring you a glow of quiet joy. Chase romance, a gamble, sports or pleasure Wednesday to Friday – but carefully: illusion’s on one side, hard reality on the other. Tackle important chores Saturday.

Oct. 17 - Oct. 23 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Remain ambitious. Work hard, show your talents to VIPs, push projects ahead. But sense a subtle change: future weeks will shunt your most effective efforts from straight-ahead work, to the social level. Schmoozing, networking, will reward.That starts Saturday. Before then, Sunday morning brings money luck (more valuably, money dreams/ideas). Run errands, communicate, handle details and paperwork Monday/Tuesday. Security, home, business foundations grab your attention Wednesday to Friday – proceed steadily, cautiously. Romance, pleasure surge Friday night, Saturday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your sweet, understanding mood continues. You’re dreamy, inspired – and charismatic – Sunday morning. Your money luck shines this night through Tuesday. Chase it, buy/sell, seek agreements, ask for a raise, etc. Affections might ‘build’ with a business or career contact. The future draws you Wednesday to Friday – your popularity and optimism soar! Seek entertainment, join a group, have fun. But take care, too: if you enjoy yourself too much, a boss or parent grows suspicious. A friend who flirts might have a cruel game in mind. Be a home-body Saturday: rest, putter, repair. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: This is your last week of mystery and secrecy, Pisces. Saturday will bring a month of enlightenment,understanding and compatible minds. You’ll tell the world what you know. But first, this week: Research, rest, remain in the background Sunday. This night through Tuesday raises your energy, charisma and effectiveness – jump into a lucky investment, debt-reduction, health, lifestyle, research, or intimate project. (Intimate project? Pregnancy, for instance.) Anything that will effect a beneficial (and the deeper the better) change in your life. Money caution Wednesday-Friday! Errands Saturday. • Reading: 416-686-5014

Tickets on sale for choral extravaganza …continued from page A32 The music festival’s organizing committee has been working since immediately after Christmas 2009 to arrange this year’s event, Burton said. She explained the need to book choirs early for what is unquestionably the busiest time of the year, and now she said, the big job ahead is selling tickets. Tickets are already on sale for the event, and can be purchased from Langley Community Music School, Tourism Langley, or from the Rotary website at • Stay tuned to the Langley Advance for more about this event as the date draws near.

Fort Gallery abuzz


or art aficionados, this is a great weekend to visit the village. Local artists Doris Auxier and Suzanne Northcott have teamed up again to present a new show at Fort Gallery that begins with an opening reception Friday night, from 7 to 9 p.m. The show, called Protected Spaces: New Myths, will run until Oct. 31.


This show followed a display called Natural States that featured the mobile drawings of gallery members Claire Moore and the drawings and collages of Lesley Garratt. That show wrapped up Sunday, giving gallery members a chance to install the new exhibit. “We hung yesterday (Monday) in between turkey bastings,” said Northcott, who said she’s showing seven new pieces, along with two that were debuted at the recent Evergreen Cultural Centre show. The gallery is typically open Wednesdays to Sundays, noon to 5 p.m. at 9048 Glover Rd. Also on the books for Fort Gallery is the upcoming Blue Plate Special on Friday, Nov. 12. The annual fundraiser is an event held at the Fort Langley Community Hall, where $200 tickets guarantee guests a work of art and $30 tickets entitle guests to enter into a draw for one work of art. • This is a major event for the gallery, so watch the Langley Advance for more information as the event draws closer, or visit
