Fort Langley Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman remembers standing in the Twin Rinks arena several years ago when his life took a new course. “I got talking to Gordon Campbell and he convinced me to go into politics,” Coleman told the Langley Advance. Coleman was in a nostalgic mood since Tuesday when the man he calls a friend stepped down as head of the province. Premier Gordon Campbell made a sudden announcement that he was resigning as premier. He will continue to serve as MLA for Vancouver-Point Grey and will stay in the premier’s office until a new Liberal Party leader is chosen. “Personally I was upset,” Coleman said of his reaction.

Police following a tip about power theft found a sophisticated marijuana operation with its own elevator. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

From the street, it looked like a run down house with a wooden chicken coop in the back yard. However, the property concealed a sizeable marijuana grow operation that had been carefully constructed, Langley RCMP say. Officers were tipped off by BC Hydro about a possible theft of electricity on the site, in the 1900 block of 240 Street, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP. The investigators arrived at about 10 a.m. on Nov. 3, and found themselves with a difficult time determining where the stolen electricity was going. It took about two hours to find the grow op they had suspected was there. The power lines led to a chicken coop. The empty coop had a hatch in the floor. Under the hatch was a three-room bunker dug almost 10 feet underground. There were more than 1,900 marijuana plants growing inside. The builders had even installed an electric lift as a small elevator to make it easier to move people and equipment to and from their bunker. Due to fears that the air was toxic or contaminated in the bunker, the police called in an excavator. It dug a hole parallel to the bunker and through the side wall, to let in fresh air. Only once the bunker was dug out could police begin seizing the pot and equipment. No one was home at the time of the police raid, Marks said, and there have so far been no arrests. “Obviously, we’ll be contacting the property owner,” she said.

Right now it isn’t clear who was using the property. The grow op was not the first sophisticated operation the RCMP has encountered in Langley, but it may be the first one with an elevator. In the past, officers have been involved in busting grow ops buried underground, or concealed behind hidden doors. More than a decade ago, they even found a tunnel built under the Canada-US border between Aldergrove and Whatcom County to smuggle drugs and other contraband. Marks said that grow ops unfortunately continue to exist in Langley, but the public

can help with tips and information for the RCMP. The electricity has been shut off and a do not occupy order has been put in place for the property. Do not occupy orders have become common for grow ops.

Police hunt for 17-year-old’s shooter A teenager is in the hospital after being shot on a Langley street Wednesday night. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A 17-year-old was shot on Wednesday night in downtown Langley City, and RCMP are investigating. At about 11:30 p.m. neigh-

bours around 208th Street and Douglas Crescent called 911 to report hearing gunshots. Not long after police arrived and began scouring the area, a local hospital called the RCMP to report a patient with a gunshot wound. The teenager had been driven to the hospital by a friend, said Cpl. Holly Marks of the Langley RCMP. Police believe the teenager was “engaged in criminal activity,”

Marks said. She couldn’t elaborate on what he might have been doing on a downtown street just before midnight. He is, however, known to police. Despite a search of the area, no gun or shooter turned up. Police believe they have located the area where the young man was shot. The victim remains in hospital and is in serious condition. He has not been able to speak to investigators, Marks said.

The Langley Serious Crime Section is now heading up the investigation, working with other units including the Street Enforcement Unit and the Drug Section. Now, police are asking for the public to come forward with tips to help investigators find a suspect. Anyone with information is asked to call the RCMP at 604-532-3200 or, to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Zoo celebrates big B-day A massive prize draw marked a 40th anniversary. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

It was a big day for some patrons and residents of the Greater Vancouver Zoo. The Aldergrove institution celebrated its 40th

birthday by holding a draw for tens of thousands of dollars worth of prizes on Wednesday. Val Foster of Surrey won a new hybrid sedan, while others won flatscreen TVs, notebook computers, or cruises. Quietly observing the proceedings was Charlie, the zoo’s elderly African white rhino. Charlie is extremely old for a rhino, between 40 and 44 years,

said Dr. Bruce Burton, the zoo’s veterinarian. “He’s probably my favourite animal,” Burton said. Although the rhino could accidentally crush a human, he is incredibly gentle, Burton said. The zoo celebrated Charlie’s birthday along with its anniversary. Charlie got a good cleaning, a hoof trim, and a hay-and-apples cake.

Leaving legacy “The evil that men do lives after them; the good is oft interred with their bones.” – Mark Antony speaks in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar.

The timing may have been a bit of a shocker, but expectations of the inevitable had been growing for weeks. By the time Premier Gordon Campbell’s resignation was a day old, the province’s feelings of surprise had already faded. And dissection of his legacy and his leadership – his premiership – is running in full gear. Writ large on the negative side of his ledger are his inexcusable drinking driving conviction in Hawaii, unanswered questions about the BC Rail deal, and of course, the HST. Although all great projects have their detractors, his bottom line also includes the 2010 Winter Olympic Games. And he will likely be remembered as a builder of infrastructure: the Sea to Sky Highway and the Golden Ears Bridge immediately come to mind, as well as guiding the Site C Dam project back into the realm of possibility. Considering the modes of exit of his predecessors, Premier Campbell may yet be remembered for beating the odds at the end. Bill Vander Zalm left under the cloud of the Fantasy Gardens scandal, leaving his Social Credit Party with a credibility deficit from which it could not recover. Mike Harcourt left under the cloud of the Bingo Gate scandal (of which he was personally later cleared), with his New Democratic Party on the edge of ruins – and pushed over that edge by his successor, Glen Clark, whose storm cloud included a sun deck and fast ferries that are still used as a textbook example of what a government can do wrong. By the time Ujjal Dosanjh was done, the NDP was decimated, and has not fully recovered. He may have felt some heavy hands pushing him to the door, but the actual time of Campbell’s departure was of his own choosing – and his choice may have left hope for recovery of the BC Liberal Party in time for the next provincial general election. Time will tell. But Premier Campbell, who – love him or hate him – has given 25 years of his life to public office, will finally have some time for himself and for his family. And both his friends and his political enemies are happy for that. – B.G.

Mufford overpass

Vote shows contempt for ALC

Dear Editor, The six Township councillors who once again voted in lock step displayed contempt for the Agricultural Land Commission, the ALC Governance Policy, the over-taxed electorate, and their own integrity. Coun. Jordan Bateman attempts to invoke Robert’s Rules of Order above the ALC Governance Policy and call a tie a deadlock. According to ALC Governance Policy, Section III-D-2, “If the result of a vote is a tie, the application fails.” In a last-ditch effort, they have called on the Ministry of Transportation, one of the Mufford overpass funding partners, for interpretation of what “application fails” means. Talk about conflict of interest! At a Township public meeting, 93 per cent opposed the Mufford overpass. At ALC public meetings, 100 per cent opposed it. A poll subsequent to the ALC decision

asked the question: “Was the Agricultural Land Commission right to block the Mufford/Glover Overpass?” 89.18 per cent voted “Yes, it’s not worth the farmland.” The 0.26 per cent who voted, “No, it was a good design,” multiplied by 100,000 Langley residents, equals 260 people; not the six’s alleged “tens of thousands.”* This “pave-it-all” council should get over it and move to the West End of Vancouver and enjoy the concrete. Dean Holcombe, Langley [* Note: In his letter, Mr. Holcombe appears to refer to the Langley Advance weekly web poll, which is not conducted under accepted statistical methods, and should not be taken as statistically valid.

Les claims editorial inaccuracies

Dear Editor, Your Oct. 29 editorial contained several inaccuracies about the HST which require correction. Numerous economists and economic studies have found the “working poor” referred to in the editorial are actually better off because of the HST. There are 1.1 million people, or one in four British Columbians, who now

receive HST credit cheques of up to $230. Study after study demonstrates this money more than offsets the impact of the HST, leaving lowincome people with more money in their pockets. To see if you are eligible for the HST credit cheques, visit www.gov.bc.ca. Furthermore, contrary to the editorial, analysis by the Canadian Taxpayers

Dear Editor, I would like to point out Karen Kersey’s glaring error [More to church merger story, Nov. 2 Letters, Langley Advance].

Federation shows the 15 per cent income tax rate reduction recently announced by Premier Gordon Campbell and the BC Liberal government ensures “that families projected to take a hit from HST will either come out ahead or break even.” The fact is, all taxpayers will have up to $616 more dollars in their pockets, thanks to this tax reduction, giving them more choice and more opportunity to support themselves and their families.

Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender said he admires the premier for making the choice Campbell considers right for his family and the people of this province, noting that he was under great pressure politically. “I think Gordon Campbell has done a phenomenal job as premier to bring us to where we are today,” Fassbender said. He added he’s in the same spot as the rest of the province, anxiously awaiting who will be chosen the new Liberal leader and hence the interim premier until the next election in 2013. “I have no idea who is going to step up and put their name forward,” he said. “I’ve heard all the rumours over the months.” Langley MLA Mary Polak believes Campbell’s decision to step down stemmed from his desire to see the province move forward and “not be distracted by the discussion of personalities.” “I think once again Gordon Campbell made a decision for what he feels is best for the province,” said Polak, B.C.’s minister for children and families. “It was a very selfless thing to do, in my opinion.”

Is it political grandstanding or asking the tough questions on behalf of the electorate? That was the root of a testy exchange at the Langley City council meeting Nov. 1. Councillor Dave Hall made a motion to spend $20,000 from the Council Enterprise Fund for an external review of the 208th Street road project after it ran $1.2 million over budget [Council grapples with costs, Langley Advance, Oct. 22]. “Another set of eyes would be useful,” he said at Monday’s meeting. The motion was seconded by Coun. Jack Arnold but defeated during the council vote. Arnold noted that the City is audited each year by an external expert and this would be no different. Significant changes in the project were approved without senior staff and council being told. City staff gave a second information presentation in as many council meetings, noting that the vast majority of capital projects come in under budget

from the public and that staff didn’t inform council in a timely fashion” leaves doubt in the public, he commented. He noted that the City’s auditors report that it has proper internal controls. “Again I think the aspersions to staff were unwarranted,” Fassbender said. “I think it sends the wrong message.” Coun. Rudy Storteboom said changes in policy have been made and “my questions have been answered.” He said he couldn’t see spending $20,000 on something he sees as redundant. For Coun. Gayle Martin the issue was senior staff and council not being told by the project manager about changes and problems that ended up costing more. “I think what bothers me is the message in the comunity that our staff are incompetent and our council is incompetent,” she said, adding “It does nothing to give any confidence in our staff.” “I feel offended,” said Coun. Rosemary Wallace, “that Coun. Hall feels he is the only one on council who does the work and asks the questions.” Hall said going over budget by $1.2 million on a $5.35 million project needs to be questioned in the context of overall City spending. “There’s no disrespect to staff in this,” Hall said.

In Flanders Fields In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. by Lieutenant-Colonel John McCrae

Remembrance Day: We must remember. If we do not, the sacrifices of those hundreds of thousands of Canadian lives will be meaningless. They died for us, for our homes, for our families, and our friends. They gave of themselves for a collection of traditions Canadians cherish, and a future we all believed in. They died for Canada. The meaning of their sacrifice and their valor rests with our collective national consciousness.

and reiterated that policies have been changed to prevent this from happening in the future. “We have done our due diligence,” said administrator Francis Cheung. He noted that a person was also fired for not providing information to senior staff about changes in the project and their additional costs. But Hall questioned why it came out after the project was finished. “Were there not some alarm bells that sounded?” Hall asked. He noted that there are other projects in the works – the Nicomekl Bridge replacement, for example. Others on council chastised Hall. “This entire report [Hall’s call for an external review] is, in fact, designed to place doubt on the capability or our staff, insult them and suggest that they don’t care about what’s happening while elevating Coun. Hall in the eyes of the taxpaying community as the only person on council or working for the City who is truly looking out for everyone’s best interest,” Coun. Teri James said. Mayor Peter Fassbender asked senior staff at the meeting that had they known about the changes would they have come to council sooner than the completion of the project? “Absolutely,” Cheung said. Fassbender was critical of Hall’s motion. “The innuendo and the suggestion that staff or council was hiding things

No Spirit this season by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

For the past three Christmases, Trinity Western University’s present to the community has been a large celebration. But the independent Christian university has announced it won’t be able to host Spirit of Christmas this year. Instead, it will return in 2011/2012, linked in with anniversary celebrations for the school that started in 1962. The event is months in the planning requires the volunteer efforts of some 200 TWU staff, faculty and students. “It costs in the neighbourhood of $80,000, most of which has to be raised with sponsors,” said TWU president Dr. Jonathon Raymond. “The remainder is absorbed by the university. It is not inexpensive to do. We appreciate the

help of our sponsors and will be working with them in the future.” It’s too early to say what the event will look like in the future. “The event will be inclusive of Trinity Western University’s 50th anniversary celebrations,” he noted. “We know we want a family friendly event with features that people told us they loved – the theatrical representation of the Christmas story, the live manger scene, petting zoo, and horse and carriage rides.” Raymond said the school looks forward to bringing back the Spirit of Christmas program for the future. While Spirit isn’t going ahead, TWU has many other Christmas activities planned that the public can take in, including concerts and plays in the coming weeks.

Church calls foul over condos by Matthew Claxton

A proposal to increase the height of a future condo complex in Willoughby got a mixed reception from its neighbours on Monday night at a Township council hearing. Members of the Free Reformed Church registered their opposition. The church, located down the street from the condos, will be impacted. Church members asked for a lot-line adjustment as compensation for road-widening. Sonya Paterson, who lives near the

site, worried about the density of the project. “High density development can be good for a community, if you have the infrastructure in place,” she said. If there aren’t better roads or public transit, she worried 208th Street will become even more clogged at rush hour. She noted that it is already almost impossible for residents living to the east of 208th to turn left from 83rd Avenue. Township planning staff noted that eventually 83rd Avenue will be diverted to join up with 82nd Avenue at 208th, where a traffic signal will be installed.

The reviews were positive from the vendors who took part in a mini-business expo held on Tuesday at the Langley Events Centre. Through the afternoon and evening, one of the large meeting rooms at the arena was packed with booths advertising everything from clothing to cupcakes, financial services to fine wines. “This is our first showing,” said Bob Kaszonyi, with Abbotsford’s Unitex. The firm sells branded clothing for local firms. “We sell virtually everything and anything that you can put a logo on,” he said. While he’s taken part in similar events in Abbotsford, this was Kaszonyi’s first trip to Langley, and he was pleased at the amount of traffic passing her booth. While merchants from Abbotsford, Chilliwack, or Surrey were showing off their wares to Langley residents, local merchants were pleased to be getting attention from out of towners. “It helps our name get further out than just Langley,” said Craig McDougall of Frostings, a cupcake shop based in Langley City. Plenty of people were stopping by his booth for a free cupcake. “It always draws a crowd,” he said. McDougall handed out brochures about his shop’s special events and answered questions, hoping to create a few new customers. Langley Township was also taking the opportunity to advertise itself as a place to do business. Bob Andrews, with the Township’s economic development division, said the event can have a double purpose. It is good for local business, but it also shows off the Langley Events Centre as a venue. That’s good for the Township, as it tries to make the arena and athletic centre a hub for the Fraser Valley.

There is something magical about coming home, as I can attest. And so can Milan Pocuca. Maybe most of you don’t know who I am talking about, and that’s okay. Most of you didn’t know me, until you started seeing my mug every week. Now, some of you know me as the writer of this business column, and many others have gotten to know me as a reporter, photographer, and assistant editor at this paper. Well, if you’re a regular in Future Shop, then you can expect to quickly get to know the new general manager. He, too, has migrated back to Langley, and for good reasons, I’m sure – a job likely part of that motivation. Much like me, he was raised in Langley and migrated to Vancouver for post-secondary school. The Aldergrove Secondary grad first started with Future Shop back in 1998 as a “product expert” selling computers in Vancouver. He has since risen through the company, becoming GM this year, before returning home to take on the boss role in Langley. Welcome home Milan, I might pick your brain in the weeks to come just to find out what are going to be the hot sellers this holiday season. In the meantime, I have much more Langley business news to share with you, and there isn’t enough room in this paper, so I’m going to encourage to you read more online. You can read about the workings of the Walnut Grove Business Association, the launch of its new website, and the unveiling of its new logo. You can also read about a home renovation seminar being hosted by the Greater Vancouver Home Builder’s Association, a $150,000 federal grant given to CCI Learning Solutions, and the recent success of a Trinity Western University entrepreneurial conference held in Vancouver.

Blue Plate Special gala

Buying art aids gallery A limited number of $200 ticket are still up for grabs for next Friday’s Blue Plate Special gala fundraiser. There are only 40 such tickets being sold for the Nov. 12 Fort Gallery event, and fewer than half those tickets were still available at the end of the week. Purchasers automatically get to choose one piece of art by a Fort Gallery artist during the Blue Plate event, explained organizer Diana Durrand. “Blue Plate Special is an annual fundraiser that gives art lovers a chance to acquire contemporary works at a fraction of the price they would normally pay – and to support the Fort Gallery at the same time,” she said. Many of the works that supporters will get to choose from are on virtual display at www.fortgallery.ca via the Blue Plate artwork link. “Take a look,” Durrand said. “We have a brand new website, and the virtual Blue Plate show is a great introduction to a unique gallery.” There are also $30 tickets available for the evening event at Fort Langley Community Hall, which runs 7 p.m. to midnight. But the lower-priced tickets entitle holders to enter in a draw for one piece of art, she said. This gala is one of the major fundraiser each year for Fort Gallery. This event, in its sixth year, features an appetizer buffet, music by DJ Elliot Way, and a silent art auction open to all guests. For tickets, call 604-888-7411 or Diana at 778-574-5435. • More about the gallery online at www.langleyadvance.com, click on “Entertainment”

Rotary Music Festival

Sing out: evening helps students

S

ome of the top voices in the Lower Mainland are coming to Langley Nov. 18 to lend their talents to helping the next generation of musicians. The Rotary Music Festival this year will feature the Vancouver Chamber Choir, the Vancouver Welsh Men’s Choir, and Pacific Showtime. The Langley Music School Quartet shares the stage, greeting audience members with music after the intermission in the two-hour program. Festival organizer Liz Burton said the evening of song will change the lives of local children who might not otherwise be able to afford music lessons or instruments. “We can touch a lot of lives with it,”

said Burton, a member of the Rotary Club of Langley Central, the sponsoring club. Last year’s event generated $5,000 for the cause. This year, Burton hopes to well exceed that figure, committing about three-quarters of all money raised to a series of music bursaries, scholarships, and programs, and the other quarter to general Rotary projects. The event, now in its fourth year, originally started as a choral competition and have evolved into a music festival. It requires lots of effort. Work started on the 2010 show just after Christmas 2009. Because the event is bringing in some very popular choral groups, they had to be booked months

ago. Now the club is busy selling tickets. The festival takes place in the Christian Life Assembly church at 21277 56th Ave. The site can accommodate about 1,400 audience members so the hope is every seat is filled, so that the club raises more money for the music students scholarships and bursaries, as well as for other community works. Tickets are $25 apiece and can be purchased from various sources. They are at the Langley Community Music School, 4899 207th St., the Tourism Langley office in the Langley Events Centre, or through the Langley Arts Council (604-534-0781). As well, people can go online to the Rotary website at www.festivalofmusic.ca.

Over the River and Through the Woods will be presented at the Langley United Church, on 200th Street Saturday, Nov. 6 as a fundraiser for Langley Pos-Abilities Society. Regular productions will be Fridays and Saturdays, Nov. 12, 13, 19, and 20. “After reading the play, Over the River and Through the Woods, written by Joe DiPietro, the MVPs knew this was the play they were looking for,” she said. Auditions were held in August. Director Barbara Harris chose six actors for the roles, and they began rehearsals for Saturday’s opening night. Over the River and Through the Woods is a heart-warming story of two sets of Italian grandparents faced with a grandson who has decided to move to the other side of the country to accept a promotion. The grandson religiously came to dinner every Sunday, the only one of the extended family who is still around for the aging grandparents. Thus begin plans to keep the grandson from moving.

Laughs abound, as well as some heart-wrenching parts. “Altogether it is a wonderful play, and the theatre patrons in the Langleys and Surrey, and parts beyond, will thoroughly enjoy it,” Major said. Over the River and Through the Woods will be presented at the Langley United Church, on 200th Street Saturday, Nov. 6, as a fundraiser for Langley PosAbilities Society. Regular productions will be Fridays and Saturdays, Nov. 12, 13, 19, and 20. Showtime is 8 p.m. Tickets for Saturday’s fundraising show are $20. Reservations must be made by calling 604-961-0117. Tickets for the other shows are $12 each, and are available by calling 604-5341795.

Arts in brief

Mama Mia, they’re coming here

Having sold out hundreds of live shows across the country, ABBA tribute band Arrival is touching down in Langley this weekend. Rock.It Boy promoter Rob Warwick is even threatening to don a blond wig, satin suit, and platform boots in preparation for the scintillating show at Cascades Casino on Sunday – a little out of character for this rock lover. “You will always find the crowd singing along with all of the ABBA’s famous and well known tunes,” including Fernando, Voulez Vous, SOS, Dancing Queen, Super Trouper, Waterloo, and Gimme Gimme. The concert is being held in the Summit Theatre starting at 8 p.m. on Nov. 7. Tickets are $27.50, and available from the casino guest services or at www.ticketweb.ca.

Big band invades Fat City A 15-piece orchestra and a few hundred dance enthusiasts will pack into West Langley Hall next week, for Fat City Swing. The Other Big Band is led by jazz and swing aficionado Doug Makela, who travels with the group all over B.C. and even parts of the U.S. They’ve performed at such prestigious festivals as the Lionel Hampton Jazz Festival. But for reasons that will become

obvious, Makela said the Fat City Swing nights in Langley are among his favourite gigs. Maybe that has something to do with the fact that Makela calls Langley home, as do many members of the band. Tickets are available at the door: $15/adults, $13 for students. Doors open 7:30 p.m., with introductory East Coast Swing dance lessons at 8 p.m. and the band on stage at 9 p.m. The hall is at 9400 208th St. and more information is at www.fatcityswing.com.

Paying tribute to Sinatara Tribute bands are popular in Langley, and Rick Valiant is going to prove how true when he and a team of other artists pay homage to Michael Buble, Elvis, Buddy Holly, and Frank Sinatara next weekend at Cascades. The songs and the voice of Frank Sinatra are a treasure. In his time he was the essence of cool, the granddaddy of hip-ness, and an irreplaceable live personality, Valiant said. It takes some get-up-and-go for any man to stand up on stage and emulate the charisma and talent of the legend they call The Voice, said show promoter Rob Warwick. He credits Valiant with capturing that Sinatra magic in a dynamic show “that would make Old Blue Eyes himself stand up and clap.” Tickets are $22.50, and available at the casino guest services, or online at ticketweb.ca.

Fire ain’t gonna stop ‘em

The Fraser Valley Symphony has been gearing up for its Nov. 13 concert in Langley. It was supposed to be at the Chief Sepass Theatre. Instead of cancelling, due to the theatre fire, the symphony will be using the Langley Fine Arts School gym right next door. While not an idea musical venue it will still allow the symphony to present its show that features selections from opera, broadway and pop music. The playlist includes the Toreador Song from the opera Carmen, Some Enchanted Evening from South Pacific, selections from West Side Story and Con te partiro/Time to Say Goodbye, made famous by Andrea Bocelli. “Our soloist is a local baritone singer, Andrew Greenwood, who is currently based in Maple Ridge,” said publicity director Greg Johnson. An interesting side-note is that Greenwood is a Vancouver firefighter. “Andrew is in constant demand as a singer and concert soloist in North America and Europe,” Johnson said. “Many of the local orchestras, including the highly regarded Vancouver Symphony have had the opportunity to feature Andrew as soloist.” Tickets are at the Wired Monk in Murrayville, the Gardenia Centre for the Arts, and Wendel’s Bookstore and Cafe in Fort Langley. Prices are $15 for adults, $12 for seniors/students and $6 for those 12 and younger.

Questions & Answers

Prepare for Winter Dear Anne,

“I have planted two small banana trees. The garden centre where I bought them said they will survive the B.C. winter. But each winter they rot and then re-grow again, and the growth is only minimal. Can you tell me how to protect them so that they can grow big?”

Nanda Kumar, via email anana trees should be covered up so the stems will survive the winter. The root re-shoots because the earth is a little warmer than the chilly air. Buy banana jackets from a nursery. In fall, before frost, cut the stems down to fit the jackets. Pile the banana leaves around the plants, to protect the roots. Without jackets cut the stems to ground level and heap leaves up to 60 centimetres over the root. A really vicious winter could kill them no matter what you do.

stems will emerge and fruit in late summer or early fall.

Joe Wong, email lueberry plants need very little pruning. Just remove any dead, broken or diseased branches. If the middle of the bush gets crowded, remove a few inside stems to open the rest up to light and air. Blueberries can be pruned any time after leaves have fallen, but healing is faster after a late January or early February pruning. June-fruiting raspberries should have old stems (anything that’s fruited) pruned out. With the new stems, just remove any that are spindly or weak. Some raspberries fruit in autumn, including ‘Tulameen,’ ‘Fall Gold,’ and ‘Autumn Bliss.’ These can be cut to the ground. New

RE

peony diseases such as botrytis to overwinter. Removing foliage and stems helps combat that. If you’ve had diseases on your peonies, they shouldn’t be composted. Tree peonies have woody branches and should be left as they are.

In the Garden by Anne Marrison

Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to amarrison@shaw.ca

“I picked some hollyhock seed in Peachland and I would like to get them started here. Should I plant the seed now, in the fall, or wait till spring?”

Annemarie Hansom, Coquitlam ow hollyhock seed in late March or April. They can be biennial (flowering in their second year, then dying) or shortlived perennial. If you’d like them permanently in your garden, keep seed in case they die unexpectedly. They probably won’t flower the first year, but you should see blooms in the second. Hollyhocks like lots of sunshine and a rich, moist, but well-drained position. They grow best against a wall because they like shelter. But they do tend to get rust, which is less severe if you cut the stems down to about six inches after flowering.

Hometown boy returns to B.C. as a New Jersey Devil Tyler Eckford and the Devils fell 3-0 to the Vancouver Canucks on Monday. by Troy Landreville sports@langleyadvance.com

While he has a handful of National Hockey League games under his belt, Langley native Tyler Eckford had yet to experience the thrill of playing one in his home province. Until Monday night, that is. The 6’1” 205-pound defenceman and his New Jersey Devils teammates visited the Vancouver Canucks at Rogers Arena. “It was very exciting – it was a childhood dream of mine to play either for the Canucks, or against the Canucks,” Eckford told the Langley Advance Thursday. “It was a great feeling to be able to play in front of all my family and friends, and play at that level.” Eckford’s dad Tim said

Monday, just hours before game time, that the NHL is a goal his son has strived for most of his young life. “I talked to him early this [Monday] afternoon and he says he is feeling good, feeling excited, and looking forward to the challenge,” Tim Eckford noted. The 25-year-old Eckford had his own cheering section at the game. “He has half of his old bantam hockey team going, I believe,” the elder Eckford said prior to the game, which the Canucks won by a 3-0 score. Among Eckford’s more than 100 friends and family in attendance was his mom Kathy, who flew down from Kamloops to watch her son play. Eckford played solidly against the Canucks, logging 14:04 of ice time and finishing the night with an even plus-minus rating. “I felt very good. I thought I had a good game,” Eckford said. Asked about the thrill of pos-

sibly scoring a goal against the higher level, it’s definitely a conCanucks, Eckford replied, “Every fidence booster and it helps your time you step on the ice, you game,” Eckford said. “One of want to score a goal but for me, the most important parts it was more about of hockey is playing with playing a solid confidence.” game and contribEckford played his uting how I could. minor hockey in Langley, It was a once-in-aall the way up to banlifetime experience tam, before joining the playing my first game British Columbia Hockey against Vancouver and League’s Surrey Eagles hopefully there will be in 2003/04. many more to come.” A forward in minor After suiting up for hockey, Eckford New Jersey in its 5switched to 3 win over Chicago defence and Wednesday, enjoyed two Eckford was solid seasons re-assigned to in Surrey, the Devils’ capping his Langley Advance files American junior A career Tyler Eckford dished the Hockey League with a 22 goal, affiliate in 65 point campaign puck off as a member of Albany, NY. in 2004/05.

After getting selected in the seventh round, 217th overall by the Devils in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Eckford moved north to University of Alaska-Fairbanks for three seasons of NCAA Div. 1 hockey. Each year, his point totals rose, and, in his third and final season with Alaska-Fairbanks (2007/08) Eckford put up solid numbers, racking up eight goals, 23 assists, and 31 points in 35 games. He earned plenty of accolades that season, as the CCHA’s best offensive defenceman, an NCAA west first all-American, and a CCHA first all-star. Eckford began his pro career in the fall of 2008 with the Devils’ former AHL affiliate Lowell Devils, and played in Lowell the past two seasons. Last season, Eckford made his NHL debut, making three appearances with the Devils. He collected one assist along with four penalty minutes in that span. continued on page A27…

Outlaws outgun Cougars

The Outlaws scored 32 points during the second half to defeat Cloverdale at MAP.

The Langley Outlaws tamed the Cloverdale Cougars Sunday at McLeod Athletic Park. The 12- and 13-year-old Outlaws’ 40-6 win knocked the visiting Cougars from second to fourth place in the Vancouver Mainland Football League’s Junior Bantam Division standings. Stellar special teams execution, highlighted by two onside kick recoveries as well as two goal-line stands by the Langley defence, and the kicking of Langley’s Dayton McIntosh was the difference in the game as the Cougars were no match for the Outlaws’ half-time adjustments. Initially, Langley’s offence sputtered and came out flat, and with penalty trouble the Outlaws were pinned deep in their own end, forcing two successful back-to-back goal stands

by the defence. Outlaw David Dejo came up with the first big stop on a third and goal on the one-yard line, with a punishing hit on the Cloverdale tailback in the backfield while a wave of Outlaw black jerseys provided the backup and smothered the ball carrier from view. Langley’s Thomas Sandberg was the hero on the second goal line stand with impressive pass coverage. Sandberg knocked the ball out of the hands of the Cougars receiver deep in the corner of the end zone, denying Cloverdale on third down on the Langley two-yard line. The momentum swing was of biblical proportions and the Outlaws’ offence responded with a time-clock eating, 15-play, 108-yard ground-and-pound drive that consumed almost an entire quarter of the game. Langley’s Terrell Jana capped the drive with a 12-yard touchdown scamper, and McIntosh was good on the two-point convert kick for an 8-0 Outlaw

halftime lead. Bruising Outlaws’ fullback Connor Griffiths contributed with some big runs between the tackles in the third quarter to set up Jana’s second touchdown on a 12-yard run. Langley’s Chris Ramsden was a force with one forced and one recovered fumble, and one knocked down pass. He was also credited with numerous hard-hitting tackles in the trenches. Ramsden was one of many Outlaws to shine on defence. Craig Clarot was instrumental with his quick reactions to plays and pass coverage, while Gordie McIntosh and Spencer Matthewman sealed off running lanes. The Cougars regrouped briefly, scoring in the third quarter to make it 16-6 before being dominated by Langley. The Outlaws’ Tyler Anderson scored two touchdowns, while Langley drives of eight and nine plays each padded Langley’s lead to 32-6 in the fourth quarter.

The Outlaws’ final touchdown of the day was a slick 46-yard halfback pass from McIntosh to Jana, with the help of a big open field block by Demarcus Singleton. McIntosh was five-for-five on two-point convert attempts. The win moved the 7-2 Outlaws ahead of Cloverdale in

the VMFL final standings, and the Outlaws will enjoy home field advantage Sunday when they face the visiting Coquitlam Vikings at MAP in a VMFL playoff quarter-final game. Kick-off is 5:15 p.m. • For more Langley Minor Football game reports, visit www.langleyadvance.com, click on “Sports”

20439 Douglas Crescent, Langley, B.C.

Two global ringette powerhouses are going head-to-head in a best-ofthree gold medal series that started Thursday at the 2010 world championships in Tampere, Finland. Canada, with Langley’s Jenn Wakefield a key contributor, and Finland met in the series opener after Canada finished round-robin play Wednesday with a 14-4 win over Team USA, and Finland blanked Sweden 34-0. Results from the series opener were not available at press time. Calgary’s Barb Bautista and Wakefield both picked up hat tricks in Canada’s blowout win over the U.S. In Canada’s opener, a 30-0 whitewash of Sweden on Monday, Wakefield recorded a hat trick and six assists.

The Langley Eagles peewee ‘AAA’ hockey team celebrated its gold medal victory in Kamloops. Finland and Canada clashed Tuesday in round robin play, with the host country coming away with a 9-8 win. The reigning world champion Finns scored with five seconds left in the game to edge the Canadians by a goal.

Peewees golden

The Langley Eagles peewee ‘AAA’ hockey team started its season off with a bang, going undefeated en route to winning the Darcy Robinson Peewee Tier 1 Tournament, held Oct. 22-24 in Kamloops. Powered by a solid

group of forwards and defencemen and strong goaltending, the Eagles beat Vernon and Kamloops by 10-0 scores, and Cloverdale 11-2 in the round robin. Langley downed Prince George 8-2 in the semifinal and then sealed the gold medal victory with a 5-2 win over Kelowna. The Eagles include Cole Macewen, Ryan Wellburn, Dennis Cholowski, Alec Capstick, Matthew Monk, Baylee Wright, Brady Morton, Nick Geyer, Luke Gingras, Colton Poohachoff, Jarrett Tyszka, Christian Darlington, David Laurin, and Spencer Gerth, along with goalies Naythan Lange and Braedon Fleming.

Eagles soar to B.C. title

Langley’s Dominique Lang and the Kwantlen Polytechnic University Eagles women’s soccer

team successfully defended their BCCAA provincial title with a 2-0 victory over the Langara Falcons last weekend at Newton Athletic Park. The Kwantlen Eagles, who finished their regular season with a best-ever record of (8-3-1), stifled their opponents during the tournament with suffocating defense and a balanced offense, and took home the gold medal. As the provincial champion, the Eagles advance to the 2010 CCAA national championships kicking off Nov. 10 in Edmonton.

Thunderbirds prey on Spartans

The Trinity Western University Spartans got the start they wanted, but struggled after the first quarter as they dropped their second CIS women’s basketball game in a row to the UBC Thunderbirds, 74-45 Saturday at the Langley Events Centre. The loss drops the Spartans record to 1-3 in Canada West this year, while the win improves UBC’s record to 2-2. “It’s tough because every time you make a mistake, they take advantage of it and I think that’s what UBC did,” Spartans coach Cheryl Jean-Paul said. ••• Last Friday, the Spartans fell behind early, and were unable to recover enough to make up the difference, as they lost their home opener 78-67 to UBC.

Hard work drives blueliner to pro ranks …continued from page A25

Eckford suited up for six games with the Albany Devils to start this year’s campaign. Then, he was called up to the NHL’s Devils, who were dealing with a rash of injuries on their blueline. During his time so far with the New Jersey squad, Eckford soaked up every second of his NHL experience.

“He’s absolutely thrilled,” said Tim Eckford, who flew to New Jersey last season to watch his son play a home game against the Ottawa Senators. “He says the play is fast but he enjoys it.” Tim Eckford said all those early morning practices – including quite a few at 4:45 a.m. on Sunday mornings – paid off for his son.

“It was something that Ty wanted to do,” Dad said. “We went along with it of course.” Asked if he thought Tyler had what it took to be an NHL player, Tim said he did, but added that most parents would probably answer in the affirmative. During the off-season, Eckford trains in Surrey and lives with on his parents’ property in Langley.

Langley Lightning’s Alysha Morrison sprinted towards the Coquitlam net with the ball Saturday at Willoughby Turf.

The Langley Lightning punished Coquitlam in U15 girls field lacrosse action Saturday at Willoughby Turf. By game’s end, the Lightning had filled the Coquitlam net with 14 balls in a 14-3 victory. The Lightning showed early promise when Ashley Heisler scored a little more than a minute into the game. Coquitlam answered back to tie the game, but from that point on, Langley seemed to explode with speed and skill from every angle. Heisler went on to score five more times for a six-goal outing. Five goals from McKenzie Rolland, a pair from Shannon Walker and a single from Alysha Morrison gave Langley the offence it needed, and then some, to beat Coquitlam by a comfortable margin. Defensively, Langley’s Melissa Flint and Mallory Andres stuck to Coquitlam’s attackers every time they attempted to score. The Langley Lightning U19 team also had a fine outing Saturday, recording an impressive 14-4 win over Burnaby.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Romance, games, sports, creativity, speculation, charming kids, beauty and pleasure fill your days. You ride a winning streak! But a change takes place here, especially if you’re single. A person who seemed like a lightweight is ready to move into deeper territory with you, while somebody you thought was more solid, alluring (and possibly “fertile” as in home, babies, etc.) grows more evasive, even retreats. My advice: wait for the evasive one. He/ she is merely taking a wise “think session” for a few weeks. Work matters heat up all month: do it; 2011 will bring huge career luck. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The emphasis lies on your domestic scene: home, kids, parents, the essentials of survival. In business, shore up your foundations. Love grows intimate, supportive — or you look elsewhere. (All November, your romantic instincts perk up. This week onward, you’ll start to grow hopeful about someone chirpy, cheerful, perhaps met in a group.) A message from the past flows toward you – or you travel to a former haunt. Sunday/ Monday are romantic, but not hugely. Tackle chores midweek. Thursday eve through Saturday promotes relationships: be diplomatic – a good friendship awaits you! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Overall, this is an easy week, Virgo. Communications, errands, paperwork, details, casual conversations and acquaintances fill November. But Sunday/Monday draw you away from social areas: you need to shore up your foundations in some arena – get more sleep, repair the basement walls, fix a phone system, etc. Romance, beauty, an appetite for risk buoy you Tuesday to Thursday – enjoy! Tackle chores Thursday eve to Saturday, especially those communication tasks. Your domestic situation heats up – you might make a significant move (careful!) or realty purchase (OK) before 2010 ends.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent lies on secrets, research, other people’s money, investments, debts, power plays, playing your hunches, lifestyle changes, deep health issues/diagnosis, commitment and consequence. In many ways, the “information stage” of this influence is over. Now it’s pure action, negotiation, taking the plunge. All month (and into early December) beware of legal hassles. Don’t state your opinion too forcefully. The same period favours international travel, education, symposiums, etc. Someone who was ready to make an agreement might withdraw: this process actually began in October. Taurus April 20-May 20: The emphasis remains on relationships – and these are growing increasingly “consequential,” as they start creating sexual, investment or other life-affecting choices between you and another (or others, as in an investment group). You’ll discuss these at length, with “love.” Yet your “partner” in all these has been growing more and more indecisive or evasive. Now, he/she/ they will actually pull back or right out for the rest of November, despite a willingness to talk. Be patient: by December, they’ll be “on board” again, and you’ll glide (or bounce!) toward success! Be ambitious Friday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Quietly, steadily plow through chores. Work, machinery, health, dependents form your main focus. All’s well – though boring. Relationships intensify all November – this could be love or hate, or both. There will certainly be words, you’ll be surprised at someone’s talkativeness (writativeness?). Love is more likely than hate, as an unexpected romantic mood steals over you, likely toward a past amour. Relationships demand diplomacy, but offer (quite limited) opportunity Sunday/Monday. Sex, lust, finances lure, unluckily Tuesday, luckily Wednesday (after dawn). Gentle love Friday/Saturday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Chase money, buy/sell, find new clients, seek a pay raise. A certain allure settles over you now to late month; it mildly attracts others, makes it easy for you to charm, persuade. Your communications intensify; you’ll be writing, talking, meeting and travelling. These activities link to partnership – e.g., you meet a viable mate while travelling, or you talk more with your spouse, etc. A very important trip might occur, bringing you wisdom, legal, educational or publishing success, taking you to a future mate, etc. But note: BIG relationship opportunities, meetings await you in 2011. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness remain at a yearly peak, so push ahead with valued projects, and/or start new ones. Two secondary changes happen now: 1) your monetary, spending picture, which went from first to second gear last week, now goes to third. For four weeks, your spending (and earning) can be heavily tied to investment or the net worth of your partner. Usually I’d recommend purchasing an investment now, but conditions are unpredictable, so be careful, alert. And 2) love, partnership quietly sink into a private, intimate, indecisive mode. Be patient! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Rest, lie low, remain in the background. The less you are noticed, the better. Usually Nature ensures this, reducing your charisma for a while. But this November a “false energy” inspires and drives you, even sparks flirtations. It could get you in trouble, so think twice before you plunge into action, argument or a big gamble! (Positively, you might rescue someone.) A love affair might start – but it has a volatile, probably unhappy future. If you’re unattached, wait for the first half of 2011, when romance potentials will soar! Shop Wednesday. Sweet acquaintance Saturday.

Nov. 7 - Nov. 13 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Your social buoyancy continues, but for the rest of November it will serve your ambitions more successfully than your heart. VIPs, bosses, even parents favour you now to Nov. 28, while the same period only aids 1) love that is already established (making couples more private, intimate) and 2) clandestine or verboten affairs. Retreat for a rest Sunday/Monday. Contemplate, plan. Your energy surges Tuesday to Thursday afternoon – charge ahead, make your mark, start important projects. Chase money late Thursday to Saturday – there’s more of it! Possible sensual joy late Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Chase your ambitions, fulfil duties, be an exemplary citizen. Your reputation is being tested, observed, made. You’ll feel more hopeful than usual now to November’s end. Your popularity and social entanglements will rise. You might meet an attractive, intellectually lively, charming talker at a social function. But it’s not his/her brain you’re interested in. You might make two, even more, new friends, good ones – Sunday/Monday, or the rest of this month. But retreat Tuesday to Thursday afternoon – rest, plan. Your energy, charisma surge thence to Saturday. Love’s possible this night! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Life has grown mellow, thoughtful lately (well, pretty mellow, as adventure or tension has generally filled this year – and to some degree, the last seven years). Your ambition zone heats up for the remainder of November – quick action, prompt responses are expected of you, bosses and VIPs are impatient. This trend is heavily laden with the possible fruits of success. Those impatient bosses are also generous; you can translate effort into money! An almost casual discussion could lead to a bigger “account” for you, or to “recapturing” an investment. Your lust rises. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014

Langley plans for snowy season on roads With winter on the way, the Township is ready to get out information as well as plows.

When severe weather slams into Langley Township, information is just a click or phone call away. The Township’s engineering division’s Storm Response Information Hotline at 604-514-HELP (4357) will be activated during severe snowfall events, wind storms, or flooding to provide recorded updates to residents. During a severe storm, residents can call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to learn about response levels in their area. Updates are recorded regularly and will include the estimated time of the next update. The hotline is not staffed. The Township’s website at tol. ca also provides “one click” storm response-related information. The Storm Response icon on the main page is active from October to March, and takes readers to facts about snow removal policies, route maps, and winter safety tips. During a severe storm, updates on response levels in the Township’s various communities will be posted regularly. With the development of social media, Twitter will also be used to tweet out newsfeed-type information regarding storm response updates.

Crews in Langley Township tested out their new sanding equipment and plows before the 2009 winter season. That year saw only light snowfall, but long-term weather forecasts suggest this year could see more of the white stuff than normal. City and Township crews hope to be ready.

that said, we still have limitations.” Surrey, with its larger population, sends out about twice as many plows as the Township can, he noted. Langley City public works has laid in extra salt and been testing snowclearing equipment, ensuring it’s ready for Old Man Winter. “We’re expecting some snow,” said Gary Vlieg, the City’s engineering director. “We believe that we’re in pretty good shape with anticipated snowfalls.” So far, weather has been unseasonably mild for November.

in response the Township bought new snowplows, and sanders. This year there are nine tandem plows, four single axle plows, and six V-plows that can be mounted on four-wheel drive trucks, along with graders, sanders, and brine trucks. Roads manager Terry Veer said if more than 25 centimetres of snow falls, the V-plows will be sent out to side streets, cul-de-sacs, and other roads that usually don’t get plowed that frequently. “We anticipate that we can do a better job for sure,” Veer said. “But

The tweets will direct subscribers to the Township’s website through hyperlinks for response details. “During a severe weather event, we encourage residents and businesses to first visit our website or call the Hotline for up-to-date response level information,” said Val Gafka, a business support manager with the engineering department. The Township has more resources to respond to a heavy snowfall than the last time roads were clogged. The heavy snowfall of 2008 caused a lot of complaints from residents, and
