The paths to and through the Fort are being switched from gravel to a harder chip-seal surface, and windows in the blacksmith’s shop have been lowered.

The walls are coming down this winter at the Fort Langley National Historic Site. The entire palisade – the log wall surrounding the Fort – is being torn out and replaced as part of a $3 million renovation of the entire park site. “We’re staying open right through it,” said manager John Aldag. The main gate to the Fort has already been replaced, and sections of the palisade to the south of the gate and on the southeastern edge have already been pulled down. The last segment to be replaced will be the northern edge, including the elevated walkway between the two battlements. Museum staff hope to see the entire palisade replaced by March of next year. The palisade was built in sec-

The YMCA’s inner city daycare is closing its doors at the end of this year. by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Paul Hansen was relieved when he found the Douglas Park YMCA Kids Club had before- and after-school daycare space for his twin six-year-olds. The Hansens had been hunting around for care, and have been thrilled with Douglas Park’s facility since the girls started there last September. “My kids really love it there,” he said. When Madison and Paige were picked up from daycare Wednesday, the staff gave their parents a letter saying the daycare was closing Dec. 31. “I went home furious, and I woke up furious this morning,” he said Thursday. He and his wife Naudia both commute to Surrey for work, so they were glad to find before-and-after care close to home – care that their girls enjoyed. Hansen can’t figure out why there are financial problems, since there are only two staff members, and as far as he can tell, there are lots of kids attending. He’s also concerned that the closure comes halfway through a school year. The kids club has been there for many years, and the children attend Douglas Park Community School. Hansen said his girls were hurt at the news. “When they found out that this was going to happen, they were devastated,” he said. He said the rates are affordable and the place is clean and well run. There are many families in the area who need access to such care, Hansen stressed. “There’s a huge need for this,” he said. He wonders how he and the other families will find care, because it’s not the first time the Hansens have had to go hunting. Hansen recalls how, last summer, the famficult decisions,” Wallace said. ily was panicked about finding space and One factor has been the provincial took a chance by calling Douglas Park to see government’s implementation of full-day if there was any room for the twins. kindergarten which has resulted in a loss of Hansen is hoping the community can income for the YMCA’s prodo something to save the kids grams. club, but the YMCA said chronic “When they Come January, the employunder-use and increasing costs ees – one full-time and one found out that means the facility must close. part-time – will be out of Over the past eight years, the this was going work, but the Y is saying it kids club has seen declining to happen, will “work with them to try enrolment and was rarely full. and find other options for It has room for 20 kids and curthey were them.” rently has 16. devastated.” The YMCA is working “Our enrolment has not been with the Boys and Girls at capacity for at least the past Paul Hansen Club, which also operates at eight years,” explained Megan Douglas Park, to see if it can Wallace, the YMCA child care take up any of the slack in division services manager. providing before- and after-school care.

The Y has provided contacts to families for Langley Childcare Resource and Referral, which can help families find care. The centre was funded through provincial funding plus the parents’ fees. Wallace wouldn’t disclose what the average enrolment of children was over the past eight years, the kids club annual budget, or what the gap is between costs and fees, but explained that no one was turned away over inability to pay, and subsidies were provided. “The impact will be significant for the families and for the school,” said Craig Spence, Langley School District communications manager. He said the district will look for alternatives in the community to provide care, but noted that it won’t be easy. “It’s going to be particularly difficult to replace the before [school] component,” Spence said.

Isabel Stafford is listed as being born in 1912, while Delnora Haynes is listed as born 1932, died 1983. The plaque said they were mother and daughter. It isn’t clear if Stafford is still alive – she would be 98 if so. Cpl.

Starting at 1:30 p.m., the White Spot Band leaves the Fort Langley Community Hall and leads everything to the Fort Langley National Historic Site. There are also activities at the historic site throughout the day. People can take part by signing a huge proclamation of B.C. and hear an entertaining reading of the proclamation. There will be bagpipe music, the Langley Music School Fiddlers and the Genuine Jug Band, flag raisings of the union jack, black powder demonstrations by the Victoria Voltigeurs, and kids activities. Established in 1827, Fort Langley was part of the Hudson’s Bay Company’s network of trading posts. During the Fraser River Gold Rush, the post provisioned thousands of miners on their way to the goldfields. In response to the large number of Americans flooding into region, the Crown colony was established.

November 25th has been declared an International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women.

Please join us on Thursday, November 25th at McBurney Lane at 5 p.m. for a short ceremony to honour the women who have suffered from violence.

Nowhere else in B.C. marks Nov. 19 like Langley. That’s because Langley still honours its history as the place where B.C. came into being in 1858. Celebrations marking that event 152 years ago start today (Friday) with the pioneer banquet at the Langley Events Centre, and hosted by Langley Township and City. Who are Langley’s pioneers? They are people who have lived in Langley for at least 60 years. (A complete list of pioneers is online.) Then the community will be celebrating Douglas Day on Saturday. Annual festivities are centred in Fort Langley. The historic site is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and admission is free all day courtesy of the Fort Langley Legacy Foundation. That’s the same group of local residents who worked to get a special cedar canoe display here. At 2 p.m., there will be a ceremony for the unveiling of a canoe carved by B.C.

When Nickerson stepped out of the door of his shop, he saw two men, including the one with the tool bag, crouching by the window of Geogem. “I saw them prying into the bottom of his store here,” Nickerson said. He called the police, who showed up very quickly. The two men ran. One of them was stopped by police just around the corner in a parking lot between Fraser Highway and 56th Avenue. Nickerson spoke to police and identified the man as the same one who had been prying at the window. The next day, both Bakelmun and Nickerson were surprised to hear that the man had walked away from the scene, rather than being led away in handcuffs. Bakelmun called the RCMP and said he demanded they pursue charges. Without that, “nothing would have been done,” he said. The would-be thieves didn’t get very far with their break in attempt. They pried up a piece of metal window frame and there are chips in the lower edge of the window. Although Bakelmun didn’t lose any merchandise – the thieves would have been hard pressed to get through the vault even if they had gotten in the store – he may face higher insurance premiums. “It’s shocking, absolutely shocking,” he said of the RCMP’s actions on Thursday morning. Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks said officers at the scene didn’t know that a breakin attempt had actually taken place. “It was not immediately apparent that there was any damage to the building,” Marks said. Once the owner pointed out that the metal window frame had been damaged, police have decided to recommend criminal charges of mischief and possession of break and enter tools. Police got the name of the 55-year-old Surrey man stopped at the scene, and he will likely be served a summons to appear in court once the charges are approved by Crown counsel. Bakelmun doesn’t know why the man wasn’t arrested on the spot, especially given the earlier warning about thieves. “I would like somebody in the detachment to say, ‘This is how the ball was dropped,’” he said.

A suspicious man may have been trying to break into a home in the Willoughby area. by Matthew Claxton

The 31-year-old Vancouver Community College student from Langley said the 10hour final exam was grueling. “I was shocked to find out I had the top mark in North America,” she said, “because I actually thought I messed up somewhat on the exam, and was just happy to have passed.” She added, “Doing so well on this exam has helped me realize that a career in the gem trade is in my future, and not just an impossible dream.” About 150 students write the exams each year. Another VCC student, 25-year-old Derek Jackson, felt it was possible, after sitting the exam, that he would receive the Dean Field Medal for passing with

Both students credit VCC with preparing students well. Burian said she chose VCC because of gemmology instructor Donna Hawrelko’s reputation, and also because the program was offered on a part-time basis. “The part-time, two-year course made it possible to still hold a full-time job while doing my schooling,” she explained. Graduates with VCC’s gemmology diploma are considered to be professional gemmologists and fellows of the Canadian Gemmological Association.

Cynicism rules It would be difficult, indeed, not to take a cynical view of the current state of politics in the remnants of Gordon Campbell’s British Columbia. It’s clear now, for instance, that his vaunted 15 per cent income tax cut – already less than adequate to repair the damage done by his stealthy and cynical implementation of the despised HST, which got him into his hot water in the first place – was never more than an empty promise, a cynical ploy to prop up a popularity level that had become virtually nonexistent. This week’s income tax cut reversal makes even more unnecessary the expensive television infomercial in which it was originally announced: Premier Campbell wasted nearly a quarter of a million dollars to announce his gambit to salvage an unsalvageable popularity rating. Well, his ploy didn’t work, so the premier subsequently took the expedient route of making a much more popular announcement: that of his pending retirement – which would have been even more popular, had he announced a speedier process of stepping down. And that cynical analysis, offered publicly by Energy Minister Bill Bennett this week, resulted in his summary dismissal from the cabinet. In a final cynical analysis, should we be surprised that the fading premier axed his tax cut? If that money wasn’t needed in the first place, why was it necessary to take the huge political risk of implementing the HST, and particularly in such a sneaky way that was so dismissive of the rights of citizens and taxpayers to understand the processes of their government? Or to take a more cynical view of the current state of politics in British Columbia, the money represented by the reversal will be needed to allow Premier Campbell’s prospective successors to fashion believable promises… which they may or may not intend to keep. – B.G.

Where have other MLAs been? Of course the HST – the name itself synonymous with disaster – was the last spike in the Liberal casket. It is all very well to wish

Dear Editor, It is bad enough that property owners can’t store their own recreational vehicles on their own property because of some ridiculous bylaw, but then the bylaw enforcement officer states that the bylaw is only enforced if someone makes

a formal written complaint. So only a select few of us homeowners (me included) are forced to pay monthly storage fees, because we have some jerk for a neighbour who obviously has nothing better to do with his time but sit around worrying about what other

City bylaws

Trees’ rights beat citizens’

Dear Editor, Are the citizens of Langley ready to lose their rights? How many of your readers even knew that Langley City was going to revoke homeowner’s rights to cut down trees on their own property? That is exactly what is going to happen to us, now that the City has passed third reading of a new tree bylaw. Unless you speak up immediately, you will not even have the right to decide if a tree is dead. To add insult to injury, this bylaw does not truly protect trees of distinction, because if it is in the way of development, it can still be cut down. A tree bylaw is needed, but this one is unbalanced, because a tree ends up with more rights than you do. E. Barrett, Langley

Gang of Six deny democracy

Dear Editor, I agree with B. Penner [Democracy gone awry, Nov. 16 Letters, Langley Advance]. Democracy has gone awry when those elected don’t represent the will of the people. From what I can see, the “gang of six” [Simple concept hard to grasp, Nov. 12 Letters, Advance] doesn’t reflect the interests of the people. They seem to have their own agenda, and are determined to fight tooth and nail to get what “they” want. Democracy indeed! Jim Findlay, Langley

people are doing on their own property. To add insult to injury, I can drive down virtually every road in our wonderful Walnut Grove community and find just about every third house breaking the exact same bylaw that we select few are forced to adhere to, because none of their neighbours are complaining. If there is a bylaw, then everyone should be expected to uphold it. I might not have such a problem forking out hundreds of dollars a year for storage, knowing that everyone else is in the same boat. Because we have ignorant neighbours, we pay the price! Neighbouring communities allow for seasonal storage of recreational vehicles because they recognize that spring/summer are the prime months for recreational vehicle use. Why can’t the Township allow for something similar? It is a huge inconvenience to have to constantly to retrieve your own RV from some storage facility every time you want to use it. The Township’s bylaw is nothing more than discrimination against a small minority of RV owners, while the rest are left alone with no added expense or inconvenience. Tanya Blanchard, Langley

Dear Editor, Once upon a time in a far faraway land, King Twit of the Fairies ruled with a very firm hand. He would look in the mirror and puff out his chest, Rub his vast paunch and say, “I’m the best! I’ve subdued my flock while I cheat and I plunder Trained my Head Fairies to put honesty asunder; My crown corporations are ripe for the plucking. Any objections! I just keep on trucking! I give the illusion I’m a financial whizz; So many objects to fill – selecting’s a quiz. When I’m finally ousted, I’ll call in my debts; Sit on company boards – cover all bets! The Sheep have been bleating; so ungrateful and bleary! I’ve told all that I’m quitting! The Fairies are leery; Perpetual bridesmaids picking which way to jump. I’m running this show for I am “The Trump.” I’ve taken lessons from King Lutin in Vussia To control incognito; gains to be lusher! I’m here till my legacy is set up intact, Then I’ll guide every detail, facet and fact.” King Twit of the Fairies will make history books; His most famous portrait will display his good looks. As a master strategist, he exceeds everyone But his rule in Fairyland is now done. Diana Sampson, Langley

Dear Editor, “Resignation” means begone, take a hike, and in Premier Campbell’s case, do it now. Why do other the MLAs, who are supposed to represent their constituents, put up with this political nonsense? We come to hurry Caesar, not to praise him. The damage is so extensive and expensive that B.C. will wallow in financial trouble for the next several generations. No wonder that brilliant potential contenders for the crown balk at this daunting task. One intrepid MLA, who with courage and political forethought at the appropriate time, had objected to or demanded open intelligent discussion would have been a shoo-in for the job. Past ill-fated and questionable projects that would have presented such an MLA such an opportunity included: the BC Rail/CNR fiasco; or the takeover of TransLink, which includes HandyDart, without so much as a whisper of public notice.

Horses can believe in Santa, too! With change of the clocks, it seems the holiday season began fast approaching, and the Fields and Flowers Farm family is trimming the farm gates, stall doors, and hay bales in anticipation of the festive season. In particular, they’re decking the halls for a fundraiser, called the Shed Row Holiday Market, set for Saturday, Nov. 20, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The Shed Row Market was born in 2009 from the desire to provide muchneeded support to newly retired Thoroughbred racehorses through the New Stride Thoroughbred Retirement Foundation (www.newstride.com). In October, the fall market saw more than 2,000 visitors come through the gates, and it generated more than $6,000 in donations and aided in the adoption of two New Stride horses and the intake of numerous new volunteers for the foundation, organizers boast. “The response from the community for our October event was tremendous,” said Maryanne Lechleiter, one of the market producers. “We were very pleased at the support for New Stride’s horses and the opportunity for visitors to connect with the work the foundation does in the

CONSIDERATION: The Township Land and the Athenry Land are being disposed of as part of a tri-party transaction involving the Township, Willoughby Community Hall Society, and Athenry Developments Ltd., whereby the Township will receive, as consideration for the disposition of the Township Land, the Athenry Land, the dedication of land for the widening of 208 Street, the transfer of land for a greenway adjacent to 208 Street, the granting of a statutory right of way adjacent to 83 Avenue, and the relocation and refurbishment of the Willoughby Community Hall; and will receive, as consideration for the disposition of the Athenry Land, the dedication of land for the widening of 208 Street, the transfer of land for a greenway adjacent to 208 Street, the granting of a statutory right of way adjacent to 83 Avenue, and the relocation and refurbishment of the Willoughby Community Hall.

Young pilot’s skills lauded The aviation industry has some uplifting news for us. During an industry awards event in Richmond this month, a local lad – I’ll use that reference because I have no idea of his age – was given one of the coveted scholarships from the B.C. Aviation Council. Darren Kroeker received the Anne and Rudi Bauer Memorial Scholarship. Kroeker apparently won his scholarship for being a top private pilot. The award recognizes superior flying skills, excellence in airmanship, and the demonstration of commitment to professional pilot training, said BCAC chair Mike Matthews. Aspiring to one day fly for the

Canadian Forces, Kroeker completed his private pilot licence in January, and is currently enrolled in the school’s commercial pilot program. “This young man has demonstrated a willingness to commit 150 per cent to his pilot training,” said chief flying instructor David Parry, “and you just know he is going to be an outstanding captain one day.”

Chapters target kids

The Chapters store in Langley has been undergoing some significant renovations in recent weeks, and I believe the culmination of those efforts is being unveiled Saturday. That’s when the store opens what they’re calling their IndigoKids shop.

Be Prepared: Winter Safety Tips

• Clear snow from the sidewalk adjacent to your property as soon as possible. This is the responsibility of all property owners. • Walk on the left side of the road facing traffic so that you can see, hear, and avoid oncoming traffic. • Caution children against building snow structures in roadside snowbanks, as their safety can be compromised by municipal equipment widening road lanes. • Caution children against playing sports on road when roads are being sanded and plowed. Safety is compromised as vehicle stopping distances increase with poor road conditions. Visit the Township’s website for more information on our winter program. Visit tol.ca and click on the Storm Response icon on the main page. During severe winter storms, call the Township’s Storm Response Information Hotline at 604.514.HELP (4357) for regular updates on response levels in your area. Engineering Division 604.532.7300

t’s fair to say that being on stage isn’t necessarily a dream come true for a young Willoughby man finishing up his masters in business. Luke Hull doesn’t know what the future will hold for him, career wise, but he doesn’t suspect he’ll become a professional theatre actor. That said, the 21-year-old is beyond excited to be taking on his first stage role in Trinity Western University’s upcoming production of The Foreigner next week. While currently in his fourth year of business studies at the faith-based Langley university, Hull is also in his third year of theatre studies at the same institution. It’s quite a juxtaposition of studies, he admitted. “It’s actually a real good balance. It balances out the creative and the practical sides in my head,” Hull told

The team has been rehearsing for the better part of a month and a half, and Hull said they’re now at a point where they know their lines, they’re working out all the technical kinks, and they’re getting to play with their characters and cement the relationships between each other on stage. “I’m really enjoying it,” Hull said. “Finally being on stage is really exciting.” He’s playing the character of Froggy LeSueur, a supporting role in this wildly popular farce. Froggy is a trigger-happy British soldier who hatches the plot to give his friend Charlie a quiet holiday by pretending that Charlie is a “foreigner” who speaks no English. In addition to being a funny and lovable character, Froggy is the force that sets the entire story in motion, Hull explained. His own personality, and that of his character aren’t actually that different, he said. “We’re really fairly similar,” Hull

While Hull is in his third year of theatre studies at Trinity, this is actually his first adventure on stage. Last winter, he worked as assistant stage manager on TWU’s production of Halo. In the spring, he was a prop collector in the production of Shakespeare’s As You Like It. Now he’s been cast, and while nerves are obvious, he’s more overcome by excitement.

The Langley Arts Council is receiving a grant of $29,650 from the B.C. Sports and Art Legacy program, part of the Olympics. “The momentum created by the Olympics can be partly attributed to our vibrant arts and culture groups on display to the world,” said Langley MLA Mary Polak. BC Spirit Festivals will bring together artists, cultural organizations, creative industries and local citizens to celebrate the spirit of B.C. That can be done through visual arts exhibitions, public museum programs, publications, media arts, dance, music and theatre productions. Funding comes from the $60 million 2010 Sport and Arts Legacy, part of the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games – and the Vancouver 2010 Cultural Olympiad.

ith Christmas just around the corner – practically – this weekend seems to be the big one for all those big craft fairs. It also seems to be the weekend – before everyone gets consumed by the hectic holiday season – that many entertainment groups are choosing to host events. Make sure to check out our craft sale and What’s What listings in today’s edition, or online (at www.langleyadvance.com). But here’s a heads up on a few local happenings you might want to check out.

Chorus gives early gift

L

angley Community Chorus calls it an early Christmas gift, referring to its concert being held next Saturday in Willoughby. Conducted by new music director Martin Anderle, the LCC will actually be performing two winter concerts this year, entitled Songs of the Season. “Treat yourself, your family, and friends to a special gift this year,” said member Alex Knight. “Everything is there in one package and requires no gift wrapping. Give everyone on your list the special gift of choral music – take them to one of our concerts.” LCC is hosting its first concert on Saturday, Nov. 27, 7:30 p.m. at the Willoughby Christian Reformed Church, 20525 72nd Ave., followed by a matinee concert on Sunday, Dec. 5 at the Sharon United Church at the Five Corners in Murrayville at 3 p.m. Tickets are available at the door, starting half an hour before each of the concerts. More details are available from the group’s website at www.langleychorus.org.

Office plays three more times

L

angley Players’ mad-cap comedy Office Hours is being held over for three extra shows. Additional performances have been added Nov. 25, 26, and 27 for this show that sold out during its regular run. Tickets and other information from www. langleyplayers.com.

Brian Gore, a San Francisco poet, is the man behind IGN which he started in 1995 to bring together the worlds’ top guitar players to share their work in public concerts. IGN is coming, thanks to efforts by Don Hlus, a guitar and strings instructor, and the Kwantlen Polytechnic University music department. “We were given an opportunity to host the International Guitar Night this year and we grabbed it,” Hlus said. “It is exciting to be presenting guitarists from around the world all in one night.” The public performance Nov. 26 starts at 7:30 p.m. in Kwantlen’s auditorium, 20901 Langley Bypass.

Gifts practically pretty create year-round structure that’s enhanced if they become moss-covered. But you do need to know your gardener. My sister has a rabbit-plagued garden, and her sense of humour would be severely tested if she received a concrete rabbit. For small-space gardeners, ornamental pots for houseplants or gardens are easily found. Matching pots in small, medium, or large sizes add design possibilities to the gift. On the practical side, trowels are usually welcome, especially as different tasks need different shapes. The business end can be wide, narrow, shallow, deeply indented, or pointed. All are valuable, including long-handled trowels which make planting easier for aging backs. Gardening gloves tend to go missing, and gloves for the dominant hand eventually self-destruct. Botanus offers a Dig This glove that’s sturdily reinforced with leather at the fingers. It’s flexible, and strapped at the wrist. Lee Valley Foxgloves’ are lighter and excellent for subtle fingering work. Both block soil particles and are machine washable. But people with large and varied gardens could also use leather rose (or bramble) gloves, long, rubber pond gloves, and rugged thorn-proof gloves.

ardeners given beautiful and practical Christmas gifts that can count themselves lucky. Metal or wooden obelisks, for instance are lovely in themselves, and enlarge garden space by making vertical plantings possible. Some artisans can make fascinating things out of wrought iron. In a North Vancouver garden, I saw a gate made from old garden tools on an iron-rail base. Gardeners with few places for climbing plants will welcome an arch or a trellis that’s good-looking by itself in winter, and a home for beautiful summer vines. Wooden birdhouses are found in craft fairs as well as some garden centres. The funky little structures are eye-catching and useful in any garden – provided they have clean-out access and a hole of a size that local bird species will accept. Few bird feeders are pretty – but the feathered clients they attract put on an ever-changing show. Squirrels are a feeder problem, although squirrel-resistant feeders can be found. Unfortunately, nothing protects feeders from bears. In bear country, feeders should be put outside only while bears are hibernating. Birdbaths are pretty and useful. Concrete animals are not useful, but they do

Gardeners use buckets in many ways: weeding, harvesting, storing soil amendments, and transporting several tools at once to the action zone. Like compost, one never has enough buckets.

Stamps cap perfect season by beating Bengals Langley capped an undefeated regular season Sunday, but the Cloverdale Bengals didn’t make it easy.

In Langley, there’s now an alternative way to spell perfection: S-T-A-M-P-E-D-E-R-S. The Langley Stampeders finished off a perfect regular season and captured the Vancouver Mainland Football League (VMFL) midget championship with a 21-12 victory over the Cloverdale Bengals Sunday. The Stamps finished their season with a 10-0 record, four points ahead of the Bengals and White Rock Titans. The game was a tight, hard

fought contest with each team capturing momentum at different times. On each of their first two possessions, neither team could gain a first down. On the Bengals’ second possession they marched 74 yards and scored to go up 6-0 with seven minutes gone in the game. The Stamps were quick to strike back on the ensuing kickoff. Kalen McMurchy took the Bengals’ kick and returned it 91 yards for a touchdown.

The Bengals came out and punched us in the mouth and we punched back. It was great to see that type of character.” The Stampeders open the provincial playoffs Sunday versus the Victoria Spartans at McLeod Athletic Park. Kick-off is 2:30 p.m.

The convert kick was blocked by the Rams and the half ended with the Outlaws up 12-8. Langley’s offence held an edge in the first half with 224 net yards to 140 for South Delta. The Outlaws kept coming and took their opening secondhalf drive down to the goal-line before fumbling into the end zone, allowing the Rams to narrowly side step a Langley major. Neither offence could score in the third quarter but it was clear the Outlaws were gaining ground and momentum while

the effects of the hard-hitting game were starting to show tell-tale signs on the Rams’ key players. A key quarterback sack by Devon McBride for a 10-yard South Delta loss helped set up an 11-play Outlaw drive that spilled into the fourth quarter and had the Rams on their heels with ground and air strikes utilizing power, misdirection, and isolation plays. That drive was capped by a one-yard touchdown run by Demarcus Singleton, which gave the Outlaws a 20-8 lead.

The Rams answered with an all-out aerial assault marching 65 yards in seven plays to close the gap to 20-14. The extra point attempt was wide due to a barrage of Outlaws storming the kick. A tricky play-action pass fooled the Rams, allowing McIntosh to hit a wide-open Jana on the next series for a 61yard touchdown run and a 28-14 Langley lead. Kyle Clarot and Nick Thomas had big games in the Langley defensive backfield.

Langley Chief Brandon Thompson is known more for setting up goals than scoring them, but he changed roles Wednesday at the Langley Events Centre. The centreman, who finished second among Chiefs in assists last season with 45 helpers, scored four times during a 102 thumping of the Coquitlam Express. His four-goal outburst doubled his goal output for the season. “After I scored the first one, I was pretty happy,” Thompson said. “When I scored my second, I told myself I was going to get a hat trick – I had to.” The Express were all but finished after a first period in which they were out-shot 27-6 and out-scored 5-0. Thompson, who notched one of Langley’s five first-period markers, scored twice in the second period as the hosts carried a 7-0 lead into the final frame. He completed his four-goal night when he gave the Chiefs a 9-1 lead with 5:05 remaining in the game. Thompson, as well as Chiefs head coach Harvey Smyl, agree the lopsided score was a combination of the Chiefs playing well, and the Express struggling. “I don’t think they [the Express] really came to play and I think we were firing on all cylinders,” Thompson said. Smyl added, “Everybody was on their toes, and we had lots of pressure.

Coquitlam was not ready and not into the game as well as we were.” The Chiefs outshot the Express 60-21 through three periods. Smyl said Thompson’s wheels were a factor Wednesday. “I think his execution is really good,” Smyl told the Langley Advance Thursday morning. “He has such good speed and gets himself in position to get chances, and the chances he had last night he capitalized on. Right now, our club needs offensive contributions… and he stepped up and led us in that department.” Also having multiple point games for the Chiefs were Josh Myers (2g, 1a), Trevor Gerling and Brad McBride (1g, 2a each), Mike Tebbutt and Kody Dhaliwal (1g, 1a each), Darnell Dyck (three assists), and Matt Ius and Kevin Tuohy (two assists each). Thompson said the convincing win will give him and his teammates confidence heading into a very challenging weekend in which they host always-tough Vernon (Saturday at 7 p.m.) and Coastal Conference-leading Powell River (Sunday at 2 p.m.) at the LEC. “I’ll build off it personally and I think we will as a team,” said the 20-year-old, who is in his fifth year with the Chiefs. Winners of three of their last four outings, the Chiefs are the British Columbia Hockey League’s highest-scoring team with 126 goals in 28 games, and improved to 16-8-0-4 with Wednesday’s victory.

North Langley football

Abby Falcons eliminate JB Bears The junior bantam Bears’ playoff hopes ended last weekend in Abbotsford. The North Langley Bears are now, officially, in hibernation. The Valley Community Football League season ended last weekend for North Langley teams. The North Langley junior bantam entry faced the second-ranked Abbotsford Falcons on their home turf Saturday in the first round of the playoffs After recording a winning record (6-4) during the regular season, head coach Marcus Noel and his staff worked hard to prepare the Bears for a possible playoff break-

through. Even though they were coming off a five-game winning streak, including a recent victory over the Falcons, the Bears had difficulty warding off the Falcons’ attack in the first half. The Bears refused to give up, and started looking solid in the fourth quarter behind the strong running of Brandon Sang and Won Jae Boo and solid blocking by the offensive line. The Bears only scored a single touchdown, however, in a 30-7 loss to the Falcons. Bantam Bears Steady rain poured down on Chilliwack’s artificial turf as the visiting Bears faced the top-ranked Giants in the opening round of the VCFL playoffs.

Strong kickoffs by the Giants pinned the Bears deep in their own end. Chilliwack led 21-0 after the first quarter and tacked on one more major before halftime. Still, the Bears showed grit, with Mook Kim running for big gains and Michael Chan catching a 25-yard pass in the second half. The Bears’ defence continued to hold the Giants off, but North Langley’s offence couldn’t find the end zone in a 28-0 loss. ••• The efforts of the North Langley players and their coaches will be celebrated at the North Langley Football Association Awards Night at Brookswood Secondary, scheduled for Dec. 3 at 7 p.m.

Outlaws’ offence racks up 428 yards tackles and two assisted tackles. Langley ended with 428 yards offence while the Rams managed 238. Although 11 Langley defensive players contributed with tackles, Dejo and Thomas Sandberg led the defence in total tackles and assisted tackles. The Outlaws now advance to the VMFL championship game Sunday, when they face the Coquitlam Raiders. Kickoff is set for noon at Coquitlam’s Mackin Park.

…continued from page A32

The Outlaws’ offence switched from the air to its familiar groundand-pound plays with the offensive line of Jamal Aujla, Ryan Rai, Tyler Anderson, Grayson Zitko, David Dejo, Alex Moggey and Spencer Moore allowing Singleton to finish off the scoring with a five-yard run. Singleton, who played his best game in a Langley uniform, was also credited with three two-point convert kicks, one interception, one quarterback sack, two

Jock scraps

All-Langley matchup on Interior ice It was Langley versus Langley in a peewee hockey game in Salmon Arm. In the midst of all the action at the Salmon Arm tournament, the unlikely situation of Langley A2 versus Langley A3 in the consolation round came about, when the teams finished within one rank of each other. Although the game was one of intense drama, there was also an element of camaraderie as players from both teams had good friends playing as teammates from previous years. Right from the first puck drop, the Langley A3 players were intent on making their presence known. Coach Jeff Bone’s experience was about to

be tested as his team put the pressure on Ron Star’s Langley A2 team. The teams were locked in a 2-2 tie after two periods. The third period dictated the final outcome as Langley A2 put in two goals to win 4-2. “The most rewarding part of the game was when both teams got together for a group photo at centre ice,” Star said. “Now that’s team spirit!”

Fundraiser for soccer trip Langley United’s U12 gold select soccer team has been given the opportunity of a lifetime. The young players will be travelling to

Manchester, England in March of 2011. Along with this comes a hefty cost, so many players have been tirelessly fundraising. West Langley Elementary has donated its gym to its very own Cole Mullen, one of the 11-year-olds heading to England. Cole, with the help from his mom, Brandy and many other friends, family, and the community, will be hosting a Christmas Bazaar For A Cause at West Langley Elementary on Saturday, Nov. 27 from 5-9 p.m. This is a family-friendly event, and there is more than just shopping to be done that night. There will be toonie

tosses, a turkey draw, poinsettia sales, a bake sale, and a kids-only shopping market where they can come and shop for their family and teachers. Free gift wrapping is being offered as well.

Spartans fourth

The Trinity Western University Spartans women’s soccer team’s season ended in disappointment Nov. 7 at Foote Field in Edmonton. The University of Alberta Pandas claimed the Canada West bronze medal after a 3-2 shootout win over TWU. Alberta got a two-point performance from midfielder Elise Emmot. Carleigh Miller scored Alberta’s other goal, while

Langley Minor Hockey Association’s peewee A2 and A3 hockey teams got together for a group photo after playing against each other during a tournament in Salmon Arm recently. forward Nicola Weber notched the match-winning goal in the shootout. The fourth-place conference finish is a drop-off for the Spartans, who came into the season as two-time defending national and Canada West champions. Trinity Western got goals from second team

conference all-star Daniela Gerig, and Nikki Wright. Trinity Western did score three goals in the shootout, and ’keeper Kristen Funk made one save, but Alberta ’keeper, Kelti Biggs stopped defender Colleen Webber’s attempt, which set the stage for Weber’s eventual winner.

Aries March 21 - April 19: A month of mellow understanding, gentle love, intellectual pursuits, legal, travel, cultural and religious involvements begins Monday morning. As your planet (Mars) is in this same area until early December, the first two weeks of this period will be intense, memorable and “high stakes.” You could fall in love, engage in a major lawsuit, travel afar – something unusual, a once-in-a-decade thing. Be honest, true-hearted; if you are not, the rest of December, into January, could bring retribution from higher-ups. Someone is ready for love with you. You’re romantic, Friday/Saturday! Taurus April 20-May 20: The weeks ahead accent depths, mysteries, investments and debts, lust, lifestyle changes, health diagnosis and cures. Your subconscious desires swell to the surface. A big decision or commitment might be demanded of you. For the next two weeks, these matters are more intense, more “impatient” than usual – and might also have more “strings attached” than is healthy. Be cautious, don’t be rushed into a situation or promise. Chase money Sunday to Tuesday – luck’s mixed, so be alert. Errands, paperwork, casual friends frustrate Wednesday, succeed Thursday. Home, family Friday onward. Gemini May 21-June 20: Drudgery ends, fresh horizons blow in, now to late December. A “quiet” relationship might take off like a rocket, or a new one begin. Links, confrontations, opportunities, challenges, competition, enmity, attraction – all grow intense. But in all the intensity, even in enmity, there is a definite streak of friendship, buoyancy and hope. A mingling effect can occur – e.g., love/hate, or you might become “best enemies.” Relocation and business/fame opportunities arise. Maturity, flexibility, diplomacy and an eagerness to join are your success tools. You’re energetic, charming this week!

Cancer June 21-July 22: Work and health issues loom large for the next four weeks. These are most intense to Dec. 7, as work swells and the stakes rise in your reputation and career zones. A working partnership might be volatile, but if you can keep tempers level, a splendid success is possible. Rest, withdraw to plan and contemplate Sunday to Tuesday eve. Midweek, your energy and charisma step up a notch – start projects, tasks. Chase money, or spend, Friday/Saturday. This month ahead will favour machinery. This week, buy it Friday, but watch for electrical/tech faults. Romance? Next week. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The weeks ahead offer romance, pleasure, beauty, creative surges and speculative urges.This is your time to accent your own desires, to take a chance on your talents – to expand and express yourself! A semi-romantic relationship could take off with fireworks the first two weeks, or a new, intense romance could spark. However, neither of these is likely to emerge into a stable marriage. You might wed, swiftly and impulsively, but create huge tensions as a result. Be patient. 2011 is your time. Your hopes, popularity soar early week. Rest, midweek. You shine, Friday/Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Home, children, diet, nutrition, Mother Nature, gardening, parks, rest, hibernation, security, real estate – these form your “best world” for the month ahead. You might invest in property, or renovate or improve your present abode, especially over the immediate two weeks ahead. That’s good, BUT be aware of two “unforeseens” – 1) an unpredictable reaction by your mate, and/or 2) electrical issues. Make sure both are “settled” before you begin. You’ve had a bit of a wild ride in relationships over the last seven years. Decide now with whom you’ll go to the future.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

Nov. 21 - Nov. 27

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The weeks ahead feature travel, paperwork, errands, details, casual acquaintances and siblings, and communications. Usually this would be a fine time to buy phones, computers, etc. – but lemons lurk until Dec. 7 (and to some degree until March 2011) so delay such purchases if you can. As in the last few weeks, you might meet a “viable” potential mate while travelling or talking. But here, too, glitches exist – long-term tension and/or an unpredictable relationship. Patience, Libra – real love’s coming! Enjoyment, happiness abound this week! Be ambitious Thursday (morning best). Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The month ahead emphasizesmoney,possessions,sensualinvolvements and memory or rote learning. (This is always your best 30 days of the year to memorize anything – vocabulary, foreign languages, math techniques, etc.) Sensual = anything from good drapes, beautiful paintings, to someone’s closeness. Buy/sell, seek new clients, ask for a pay raise. BUT in all this, go slow before Dec. 8, as pitfalls exist. E.g., you might get too sensual and alienate a romantic prospect, or push too fast for a pay raise and spark tension. Love, legal, intellectual, travel success Thursday! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness rise now through December! Your sexual magnetism, determination and “wilfulness” have already grown over the last few weeks – now these increase also. Start new projects, ask favours, see and be seen, attend “in person,” get your way, negotiate – you’re in charge! But, especially until Dec. 7, don’t recklessly overpower other’s needs, desires and sensibilities, or you could create “invisible rebellions” that erupt later, just when you need allies. This week’s happy. Financial, sexual luck soars Thursday! Love, wisdom Friday/Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Take a break. During the four weeks ahead, rest, contemplate and plan. Your energy will ebb. Attend to government-related tasks, institutional and charitable involvements. Fulfil obligations, but don’t volunteer for new ones. Avoid the spotlight. Avoid places where belligerent people gather – bars, dark alleys. Chores call Sunday to Tuesday – get them done. Relationships face you Tuesday eve through Thursday – be diplomatic, even evasive before Thursday. True friends, real loves, show Thursday. Mysteries, big finances, lifestyle decisions come Friday/Saturday – good results! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Friends, popularity, wish fulfilment, optimism, flirtation and happiness visit for the next few weeks! You might face an unexpected dilemma in which your money and your wishes don’t agree, and you might have to choose one. Pick the dream – maybe you can accomplish it for less. You might discover that the person you “possess” doesn’t mix well with your friends. Choose friends – but don’t listen to friends’ advice about money. Romance, flirtation, pleasure, a risk-taking mood buoy you Sunday to Tuesday. Tackle chores midweek. Exciting meetings Friday/Saturday – forgo eccentricity. Pisces Feb.19-March20:Yourcareer,neighbourhood prestige, relations with parents and bosses, are emphasized for the month ahead. I’ve already warned you that bosses are temperamental. That continues to Dec. 7, so be diplomatic, good-humoured. Expect unexpected reactions, results! Hustle to perform tasks, to meet deadlines. Bosses love eager screwups more than competent grouches. (In some fields, engineering, math, medicine, Pisces are truly favoured now.) Sink into “domestic rejuvenation” early week. Creative, romantic success Thursday. Tackle chores Friday/Saturday – practise safety Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014

Dark times spell danger

Township of Langley Traffic safety coordinator Ineke Schuurman properly escorted fouryear-olds Olivia Goertz and Lauren Chesterton across the street in Walnut Grove by using a crosswalk, looking in both directions, making eye contact with drivers, and waiting until traffic had stopped and it was safe to cross.

Langley Township is warning drivers and pedestrians about dangerous practices. LOOK inside for Great Savings at these dealers... ■

decision for the motoring public,” said Cpl. Holly Marks of the Langley RCMP. “In their attempt to swerve and miss a pedestrian they’ve been unable to see until the very last minute, drivers could end up colliding with a barricade, another vehicle, or any obstruction on the roadway, resulting in serious injury or even death.” Walkers should always try to cross the street at a well-lit intersection, and motorists must think of every intersection as a crosswalk and be alert for those on foot. However, that is not a licence for walkers to simply step out in front of oncoming vehicles, even if they are in a crosswalk: “Common sense has to prevail,” Schuurman said. “Pedestrians have the right-of-way in crosswalks and drivers are required to stop, but that doesn’t guarantee your safety, or that the cars are going to stop. What if the driver doesn’t see you? What if you haven’t given them enough time to brake?” Pedestrians should stand at the curb edge and

wait until all traffic has stopped, make eye contact with drivers, and look left, look right, then left again before proceeding, said Marks. Even when crossing at an intersection with a controlled “Walk” signal, pedestrians should look over their shoulders before entering the roadway, to ensure there are no cars turning the corner. Drivers also need to realize that vehicles stopped ahead or beside them are stopped for a reason. They may be yielding to a pedestrian, Schuurman pointed out. Those who are driving or walking in an unsafe manner can also face charges and fines of more than $100, under the Motor Vehicle Act. Drivers can be charged with failing to obey a traffic control device, entering a roadway when it’s not safe, and entering an intersection on a red light, and pedestrians can be charged with failing to yield to a vehicle when not in a crosswalk, failing to use a sidewalk, failing to walk on the left facing traffic, and disobeying pedestrian control signs.

As the days get shorter, the weather gets worse, and visibility deteriorates, drivers and pedestrians are being urged to take extra precautions on local roadways – for everyone’s sake. “It is so important to pay attention this time of year,” said the Township’s traffic safety coordinator Ineke Schuurman. “Don’t assume other people see you, especially in the early evening or early morning, and don’t assume they will stop, even if you have the right of way.” With the arrival of fall, the Township and local RCMP remind those behind the wheel and on foot that the increased darkness and the onset of cold, wet weather makes it harder to see and stop. Pedestrians should wear reflective gear, or at least light-coloured clothing, to increase their visibility. And while never advisable to jaywalk, walk between parked cars, or cross the street mid-block, it is an especially bad idea when it is dark. One particular problem spot is near Langley Memorial Hospital. People park at the old municipal hall site, then cross Fraser Highway on foot to get to the hospital – without walking to the controlled traffic signal and using the intersection. “People just run across the road,” Schuurman said. “They dart across two lanes, pause in the median, then dart across the next two lanes. They think they are saving time, but they are taking an enormous risk.” “Not only are pedestrians putting themselves in extreme danger, they’re also making that poor
