At seven months old, Hanna Ryan likely has no idea who Santa Claus is, but that didn’t stop her from giving the jolly elf a big, gummy smile during their visit at Willowbrook Shopping Centre. Hanna was visiting Langley from Whitehorse.

when all through the house Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse; The stockings were hung by the chimney with care, In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there; he children were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads; And mamma in her ’kerchief, and I in my cap, Had just settled down for a long winter’s nap, When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter. way to the window I flew like a flash, Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash. The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below, When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, But a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer, With a little old driver, so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick. ore rapid than eagles his coursers they came, and He whistled, and shouted, and called them by name; “Now, Dasher! now, Dancer! now, Prancer and Vixen!

Now dash away! dash away! dash away all!” s dry leaves that before the wild hurricane fly, When they meet with an obstacle, mount to the sky, So up to the house-top the coursers they flew, With the sleigh full of toys, and St. Nicholas too.

The prancing and pawing of each little hoof. As I drew in my head, and was turning around, own the chimney St. Nicholas came with a bound. He was dressed all in fur, from his head to his foot, And his clothes were all tarnished with ashes and soot; A bundle of toys he had flung on his back, And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack. His eyes – how they twinkled! his dimples how merry! His cheeks were like roses, his nose like a cherry! is droll little mouth was drawn up like a bow, And the beard of his chin was as white as the snow; The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth, And the smoke it encircled his head like a wreath; He had a broad face and a little round belly, That shook, when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly. e was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf, And I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself; A wink of his eye and a twist of his head, Soon gave me to know I had nothing to dread; He spoke not a word, but went straight to his work, And filled all the stockings; then turned with a jerk, And laying his finger aside of his nose, nd giving a nod, up the chimney he rose; He sprang to his sleigh, to his team gave a whistle, And away they all flew like the down of a thistle. But I heard him exclaim, ere he drove out of sight,

Cold case solved

A police “cold squad” got a lucky break recently when a man walked into a police station to get something off his chest – his role in a Metro Vancouver murder that had gathered dust for years. After a police investigation, Matthew Anthony DaSilva pleaded guilty Wednesday to two counts of accessory to murder after the fact, in connection with two separate murders, including one with Langley ties.

Hsa Htoo is a typical Canadian teen. The 15year-old likes her school, Langley Secondary, and at this time of year, looks forward to Christmas with her family. But like so many in this community, she and her family are struggling financially. That’s why they are so grateful for the help received from the Langley Christmas Bureau. Hsa Htoo is one of the Langley residents who is of Karen heritage. Her family emigrated three years ago under a United Nations program to help the Karen get out of overcrowded refugee camps in Thailand. For the Karen, Christmas centred around church and family. (Many ethnic Karen are Baptist, a remnant of more than a century of British colonial rule in the country formerly called Burma.) They would typically attend church services

Gift-giving is a part of that as well but when the money is tight and a family is trying to make its way in a new land, that little extra help goes a long way to making Christmas special. “We receive so many presents and all the pres-

Canada started receiving Karen refugees in 2006 and has opened its doors to more than 3,900 Karen people so far. The Karen are an ethnic minority in their homeland and have been persecuted by the Myanmar (Burmese) government for years. More than 20 years ago, Thailand set up temporary refugee camps for them and due to overcrowding and its effects (crime, poverty, health problems and more) the United Nations began a dedicated program to help the residents of the camps. About 140,000 Karen ended up in camps.

Despite the difficulties of adjusting to a new culture, the family is glad to be in Langley, away from the hardships of the past. Her mother, Eh Hser, was pregnant with Hsa Htoo when the family was forced to leave their native Myanmar and go into a camp in 1995. Hsa Htoo’s parents told her about life before the camp, when her father, Thaw Ka, farmed rice and her mother learned about basic medical care, serving as a lay health advocate for the community. In the camps, her mother continued helping with health issues, as the overcrowded conditions resulted in many people contracting fevers, respiratory problems, and other chronic illnesses. Her father worked at what he could, often building houses. Despite the conditions, the family’s priority remained education for their five children but in many parts of the world, there is no public education system. “To go to school you used to have to pay a lot of money,” Hsa Htoo explained. Now the family is together in Canada with her older sister Ba Htoo, 21, living downstairs in the same apartment building with her young family. And Hsa Htoo is with her other siblings, 19year-old sister Ku Htoo, 17-year-old brother Ku Shee and 13-year-old brother Tamla Shay, and their parents. They are all living together in a modest Langley City apartment, where Christmas will be brighter, thanks to the tight-knit family feeling blessed for the assistance they’ve received through the Langley Christmas Bureau.

Fort Langley history rises from earth

Jack Porter has been literally digging up the history of Fort Langley for more than 30 years. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Some parts of the history of Fort Langley are well known. Other parts are shrouded in mystery, despite taking place a (relatively) brief 150 years ago. Parks Canada archaeologist Jack Porter is slowly digging up pieces of that history during work this winter at the Fort Langley National Historic Site. “I’ve been involved with the archaeology out here since 1979,” Porter said. “I’ve learned a thing or two about the site.” Porter is following in the tracks of the construction crews who are digging trenches for new wiring and replacing the wooden palisade walls. From the soil come artifacts that go back more than a century. While no major surprises have turned up so far this season, Porter said every piece adds something to the story of the Fort. He recently showed the Langley Advance four of the best pieces he’s found in the past few weeks. Each points to a different piece of life on the land where the Fort now sits. A piece of a blue-and-white china serving plate is from the Spode factory in England, and was made sometime between 1850 and the early 20th century. Most likely, it was used in the Big House, where the top Hudson’s Bay Company officials lived and did business.

Matthew Claxton/Langley Advance

The piece of porcelain Jack Porter holds in the Fort’s coffee shop may look like the cups in the cabinet – but it’s about 150 years older. “Appearances were everything,” Porter said. Even back when Fort Langley was a fur and salmon trading post, and then when it outfitted rugged miners heading up the Fraser for the gold rush of the late 1850s, HBC brass had to entertain in style. The plate would have been set out when important guests arrived. A clay tobacco pipe with the letters “I” and “F” on the stem is one of the artifacts that shows the scope of the HBC. Such pipestems, made by John Ford’s pipe company between the 1830s and 1870s, are found at virtually every HBC site across Canada. The broken neck of a bottle was also likely associated with the Fort. It’s the

latest in a long string of bottles and bits of glass that Porter has discovered at the Fort. Some of them came from England, while others were imported from San Francisco. By examining the bottles, Porter can sometimes find out what was being imported to the B.C. wilderness. Some of the San Francisco bottles, for example, were apparently filled with a popular brand of soda water. Another chunk of round glass appears to be the bottom of a canning jar. It’s turned purple with age – dating it definitively to between the 1890s and 1914, as the colour indicates it contains manganese. “Probably associated with the Mavis family,” Porter said. That long-established Langley family farmed the land after the Fort was finally sold by the HBC around the turn of the century. The family would have used it to can vegetables grown on the land. While this trip has so far turned up Fort and pioneer-era artifacts, there are also signs of the very, very long occupation by First Nations people in the area. Porter has excavated hearths and found stone tools during past digs. His biggest surprise during his years working at Fort Langley was carbon dating some of the hearths, and finding they were 8,000 years old. “This has been a popular spot for people for many, many years,” he said. There’s still plenty to learn, Porter said. In particular, he’d like to know the exact location of a temporary fort thrown up in 1840, after the first fort on the site burned to the ground. Porter will be back in January to continue his work. He’ll be assisted by Wes Antone, a member of the Kwantlen First Nation.

A few weeks ago, Fort COMMENT Langley-Aldergrove MLA ONLINE Rich Coleman was preparing to run for the province’s top job. But on Wednesday, he endorsed Kevin Falcon. Coleman, the province’s solicitor general, called Falcon the best candidate to lead the party into the next election. “He also represents a new generation of leadership to take B.C. into the next decade,” Coleman said in a press release. Falcon was most recently minister of health, and has also held ministerial posts in transportation and deregulation. Falcon is considered one of the front runners in the race to replace the outgoing Premier Gordon Campbell. “We share common views on a wide range of issues, but we also know the strength that comes from having different perspectives on the same team,” Falcon said in the wake of the endorsement. After announcing earlier this month that he was not going to run, Coleman said he was weighing his options and would meet with the various leadership hopefuls before choosing whom to support. The vote to choose a new Liberal leader will be held on Feb. 26.

Langley City isn’t scuttling its support of the unpopular overpass and road projects on the Langley/Surrey border but it is holding a public meeting in January to explain it all to residents. The Roberts Bank Rail Corridor Combo Project involves overpasses on 196th and 192nd Streets and road construction in the area as well. Irate residents have shown up at two City council meetings and two open houses hosted by the groups planning to build the projects by 2014. [Overpasses panned by neighbours, Dec. 17, Langley Advance] “Those meetings were well attended,” said Mayor Peter Fassbender. “There were a lot of residents that COMMENT were concerned.” ONLINE He acknowledged that those attending had “some fairly strong points of view.” Fassbender said the meeting, which will take place early in the new year, will likely be at Nicomekl Elementary to allow for large numbers of people. City employees are preparing information and background on the projects and why these particular projects are the preferable route. “There has been numerous overpass studies done as far back as 1991,” explained City administrator Francis Cheung. “What we hope to demonstrate is how we used those studies to show how we came up with [this plan].” As well, those attending the City townhall will be provided with information on the many areas of concern such as additional noise, property values, added truck usage on the roads, funding, taxation and more. Fassbender addressed one of the complaints expressed at the previous meetings – that City council is not as sensitive to the concerns and issues of residents in the area (around 196th Street between 53rd and 56th Avenues). “We are taking all “We are taking those issues seriously,” Fassbender said. all those issues Langley City has comseriously.” mitted to just over $8 million in funding for the Peter Fassbender Roberts Bank Rail Corridor Project. In all the nine projects around the Lower Mainland are intended to help traffic flow and reduce interactions between trains and vehicles. The Mufford Overpass project was one of the nine which did not receive Agricultural Land Commission approval. The projects are expected to cost $360 million with the federal government kicking in up to $75 million, with the other partners contributing varying amounts. The partners include Port Metro Vancouver, TransLink, rail companies (BC Rail, CN, CP and the Burlington Northern Santa Fe railroad), the provincial government, the municipalities of Surrey, Delta, and Langley Township and City.

It’s Christmas! This is a time of year that breaks down some of the religious barriers that divide people. Much as some folks will try to deny it, Christmas is a celebration that has transcended its specific religiosity. Christmas is now celebrated – or at least recognized – by people of nearly every faith (or no faith at all). No, they don’t all recognize December 25 as the birth date of Jesus Christ, the central figure in Christian beliefs. Indeed, even most Christians themselves don’t take the date literally, but as an arbitrary acknowledgement that their “saviour” was born into the world to exert his positive influence. Many people of most other faiths throughout the world have come to accept and embrace the “Christmas season” as a time of sharing and giving, a time to consider the importance of friends and family and neighbours, a time to make an active effort towards bettering the lot of acquaintances and strangers alike – a time to let sink in the realization that “we’re all in this together, after all.” All of those aims conform to the basic tenets of all of the world’s great religions. Except for a few miscreants – some of whom, unfortunately, rise to positions of power – everybody really wants the world to be a better place for everybody. Christmas is a time that tends to supersede the greed promulgated through our corporate, commercial society. And while concerns of commercialism destroying the basic goodness embodied in the season are valid at their root, we need only look around us, at all the good and selfless things that people do for each other, especially at this time of year, to see that Christmas breaks through shallow day-today existence, and helps to make us all better than we believed we could be. And whatever your religion, if any, that is certainly worth celebrating. Merry Christmas! – B.G.

Helping hand shares spirit

Language

‘Gentlemen’ not necessarily ‘good’ Dear Editor, English is the most universally spoken language in the world. Although rife with expressions of feeling well, the common answer to, “How are you today?” is inevitably “Good!” In fact, that word, good, seems to be the reply to

many questions. (In my era, it was the word “swell,” which means the same thing, but is even less descriptive.) So a jailor can ask a crook how he is this morning, and the prisoner will reply that he is “good.” He may have had a conversion overnight,

Langley Events Centre

Appraised worth questioned

Dear Editor, Has anyone seen the $100 million appraisal of the Langley Events Centre? I am really curious to see it. Did Rich Coleman just make that up? Why does he even know the appraisal amount? The only possible value the LEC can have is if it makes a profit. How much did it bring in in one year, and what were the expenses? Any enterprise with a negative profit (loss) has a negative value. Wally Martin, Langley

but he almost certainly is not “good”. Another bothersome expression is the use of the word “gentleman.” The police will report that, after robbing an 88year-old woman and knocking her to the ground, they caught the perpetrator and that “the gentleman is now in custody, awaiting trial.” Gentleman? There is nothing gentlemanly about the cowardly individual. Speaking of police spokespersons, they never report finding somebody’s dead body. It is usually reported that they have found the body of the deceased. I suppose it is because they dislike cases with a dead end. Mike Harvey, Langley

Provincial politics

Problems rooted in voting system Dear Editor, The current chaos in our provincial politics could have been anticipated. Most governments that have been in power for as long as this one become progressively more arbitrary. Eventually, the public becomes dissatisfied. Some MLAs get disenchanted when they hear the sounds of steel on stone, and simply quit. The premier hangs on, hoping the bad mood will eventually dissipate. This time, the crowd wants blood. It’s similar to the late 80s, when Social Credit disintegrated. At that time, we dismembered a series of governments and premiers. Our current government introduced much legislation that does not go down well with the crowds, the latest being the HST debacle. Does anyone think our representatives have shown any interest in our points of view on any of this? The power of government is concentrated in the premier’s office. Cabinet should draft the legislation, but the cabinet is dominated by the premier himself.

TODAY’S FLYERS... in the Call 604-856-7733 for delivery info.

The legislature is weak and ineffective. The parties control how MLAs can vote, and consequently, MLAs represent the party’s interest, not yours. The current system persists in inflating the share of seats for the winning party, keeping unpopular governments in place long beyond their natural duration, and preventing smaller parties from gaining access. Younger voters can see through the system. They’re opting out. We dishonour the veterans who died in two world wars by keeping this cranky

system in place long after it has ceased to serve us. The root of these problems lies in how we elect our representatives, and the interests we create for them in doing so. The time has come to throw out this half-hearted attempt at democracy. It is practical and not too difficult to create a system that will allow us to go home from the polls satisfied that we have elected candidates of our choice. Timothy Jones, Fort Langley [Note: A fuller version of this letter is online at www. langleyadvance.com.]

Overpass

Endorsement not worth a cent

Dear Editor, Your Tuesday paper had an interesting blurb from exactly a decade ago [Looking Back…, Dec. 21, Langley Advance]: “Langley City Council endorsed TransLink’s suggestion of a rail overpass at Glover Road, but said it would not pay a cent for it.” As we enter the second decade of this century, what went wrong after this excellent endorsement?

Then he figured I may be out of gas, as my fuel gauge is not working. His brother was passing by, and he made him detour and go and get some fuel for us in a can, which he poured, and then sent me off without paying for it or taking anything in return. He just said, “This is my Christmas gift to you. Merry Christmas.” What a blessing to have help when you are stranded. He was our Christmas Angel. Christmas is all about giving and caring and celebrating and sharing the spirit with one another. Carmen D’Souza, Langley

Dear Editor, It was a dark and rainy night. My van died on 216th Street near Maxwell Crescent. Richard was enroute home and saw me stranded with my daughter and came by to help. He was in his Santa hat and pulling along some Christmas trees in his trailer. Later, I found out he owns a Christmas tree farm on Maxwell Crescent. What amazes me is that there are so many people with big hearts willing to help anytime. He not only pushed us off the road and was ready to pull out his jumper cables to give the van a jump start.

Murder mystery unites

A group of local actors is taking part in a dinner theatre Dec. 31. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

A

flock of Langley thespians are ringing in the New Year together. Langley residents Angela Bell and Raymond Hatton, accompanied by fellow Langley Players members Richard Wiens, Ashley Sutton, and Kate Bergen are participating in a Surrey Little Theatre (SLT) murder mystery event being held Dec. 31. SLT, which operates out of space in the Clayton Heights area just west of Langley, is hosting its third annual New Year’s Eve dinner theatre. Admission includes a catered dinner, door prizes, complimentary champagne, and swing dance lessons. But the highlight, at least for these local actors, will be the murder mystery, Here’s Killin’ You, Kid, being performed in a Film Noir style. Festivities begin at 6:30 p.m. and carry through the night. Tickets are $45/each and must be purchased in advance by calling 604-576-8451 or email: reservations@ surreylittletheatre.com. • More online: www.langleyadvance. com, click on “Entertainment”

Passion to dance drives New Year’s bash Willie McCalder, the Powder Blues keyboardist and singer, is pulling together some friends to help rock the Fort Langley Community Hall. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

A

lmost every year since childhood, Suzanne Northcott and her sister Janice Robertson have celebrated New Year’s rockin’ out at the Fort Langley Community Hall. “We’ve been working these floor boards over for many years,” said Northcott, a long-time Fort Langley resident who is once again helping coordinate a New Year’s Eve party at the hall. Many times over the past 30-plus years, the duo, along with friend and fellow artist Judy Nygren and others have joined forces to organize some kind of celebration. This year being no exception, they’re coordinating what’s being dubbed as the New Year’s Blues Ball beginning at 8 p.m. on Dec. 31. But what makes this year’s event extra special, said Nygren, is that they’re spreading the word, and inviting other people outside of their friends and neighbours from the “close-knit” village community. “In the past, we, as close friends, have wanted to get together for New Year’s and ring in the new year together. So we simply rented the hall

Suzanne Northcott, Judy Nygren, and Janice Robertson are among the organizers of the New Year’s Blues Ball being held Dec. 31 at the Fort Langley Community Hall.

for our local party/dance. We were never too swift on advertising it too much and it often turned out that

there were not many, many people attending,” Nygren elaborated. “That never seemed to matter,

because with great music – always live – and potluck food, a little wine and beer, etc., we always danced our feet off and had an absolute blast,” Nygren said. “It was often the best dance/ party of the year because everyone just wanted to get together and ‘rock it’,” she added. The same is expected this year, thanks to the return of Powder Blues keyboard and singer Willie McCalder. “When we found out that Willie could come and pull together the band, we all did a big whoop. He always pulls together a great band, and he knows how to get people going [on the dance floor],” Northcott said of their long-time friend and musician. “Everyone is always up on the dance floor. Partner? Who needs a partner? The whole group dances non-stop,” Nygren added. Tickets for the evening are $35/ each and available from Wendell’s Bookstore and Yellowhead Trading, both located in the village. Although the hall can hold upwards of 250 people, Northcott said the event is kept down to about 125 to leave lots of room for dancing. “Obviously, we love to dance,” interceded Robertson, describing the crowd as warm and accepting. “You almost feel weird, if you’re not dancing.” When asked about the dress code, the trio chirped in harmony, there isn’t one. Admission includes party favours and a light buffet. The event will have a no-host beer and wine bar.

New Year’s Eve

Road Hammers end their run at Cascades Casino

A

New Year’s show at Cascades will be one for the history books. Radio reports say the Canadian Country Music Award winning band known as The Road Hammers is performing one last time – and that concert is happening here in Langley on Dec. 31.

Before the artists part ways to pursue their own musical ventures, the country band, including superstar Jason McCoy, is going to rock together one last time. The Road Hammers is a mix of country, Southern rock, and blues singing songs of maverick culture and the open road.

The show, which is expected to sell out early, is being held Friday, Dec. 31. For those who wish to partake in the $94.95 dinner and show combination, it starts at 7 p.m. The concert only, at $74.95, starts at 9:30 p.m. Tickets at Ticketweb.ca. • More at www.langleyadvance.com, click on “Entertainment”

year, and is also recyclable. Mirror glass has even more reflective value and is longer-lasting. It can be put on windowsills, and elsewhere. I was in a house some years ago in which the owner had extended the glass beyond windowsills, up the walls and the ceiling of the recess where the window was placed. Glass sellers will cut to size – but it’s vital to take absolutely correct measurements into their business. White-painted walls also reflect light in otherwise dark rooms. Another important point is to keep windows near plants very clean. Two-shelf plant stands can be useful by a low window if the shelves of the stand are made of glass set into a wood or metal surround. Castor wheels improve mobility. If light-loving plants on the top shelf are spaced far enough apart, shade plants can be placed on the lower one. Gardeners who raise slow-developing vegetables such as leeks, celery, or onions on windowsills early in the year usually find there’s just not adequate light.

Many annuals raised from seed also need an early start if they’re to flower in summer, including snapdragons lobelias, sweet peas, and geraniums. This is where a plant light can be very useful. One gardener I met had a bank of shelves in her garage. Each shelf was wide enough to hold a flat – and each shelf was long enough for two or three flats. Under each shelf (except the bottom one) was a light fixture holding a fluorescent grow-light tube. This kind of plant nursery would be a magnificent gift for a gardener – and relatively inexpensive for someone who can assemble the equipment. Free-standing units already put together are also available in some garden centres. Fluorescent tubes need replacement every year or two, since they get dimmer as they age. It’s also very important to keep them dusted.

A

t Christmas, it’s ironic that light-loving plants like kalanchoe, poinsettia, and chrysanthemums are so often given as gifts. In this southwest corner of B.C. the reality of our festival of light is often six-hour days of dimness under dark, rain-filled clouds. Much Christmas brightness is created by people from decorative lights, shining ornaments, plant arrangements, bright wraps on gifts and the inner light of joy and giving. But outside, gloomy skies can persist for weeks on end. Even the shadeloving peace lily, cyclamen, and oxalis get discouraged on dim windowsills. Many indoor plants begin to look sickly through December and January, largely due to light starvation. The plants lean at windows, on spindly stems with leaves unusually far apart. The cheapest and fastest way of bringing more light to windowsill plants is to lay aluminum foil on the sill under the plants. This can also be done on shelves under plant lights. Aluminum foil will stain and can tear, but it helps plants through the two most light-deprived months of the

Win this Window contest

Santa was early

It’s been a big year for the Perkins family and it just got bigger. by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Kent Perkins won’t be complaining at his wife’s shopping, now that she has won the Win this Window contest. Jacqueline, an aesthetician, called up her plumber husband to say he needed to swing by Forever Yours Lingerie to pick up $7,000 worth of prizes. She entered the draw, which features prizes by Langley City merchants, at the Passionate Home store. “Definitely added a Christmas bonus for sure,” Perkins said. It’s been a busy year for the young Langley City

couple who were married in 2010. “This is definitely a big help,” Perkins said. The contest’s popularity continues to grow, said Teri James, the Downtown Langley Merchants Association executive director. There were about 5,000 entries, about 50 per cent more than last year, and merchants did better in promoting the contest, which involved people using their receipts as entry forms. “I’m delighted that a young couple won,” James added. Carrie Thachuk, of Passionate Home, stopped by to help Perkins pack up the prizes, which he only had time to glance over, but he said he sees items that can help some worthy causes, particularly ones related to children. “Some of these things will get donated,” he said.

Willie Kok and her family were the winners of the Fort Langley Business Improvement Association Wishes and Wonders contest.

Contest winner elated Fort Langley businesses have certainly perked up the holidays for one lucky family. by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

The winner of the $5,000 worth of merchandise in the Wishes and Wonders contest won’t have far to haul her holiday goodies. Willie Kok and her family have lived in Fort Langley for about a decade, and she works at the Old Candle Shop on Mavis Avenue. The contest, a first for the village, was organized by the village’s Business Improvement Association. Executive director Shirley Stewart said the support from the business community was impressive and the BIA will look to do something in the future. The merchandise was donated by village businesses. “Everything was just overwhelming,” she commented.

The family has been in Canada for 14 years and lived in many communities before settling down in the close-knit village. They’ll be sending off photos of their holiday win to family in the Netherlands. Willie hasn’t had a chance to go through all of the prizes but has spied some items she know the family needs and other items she looks forward to perusing, such as local history. It was her husband, Willem, who actually entered the contest online. Willie stopped by the BIA office to pick up her prize and was able to keep it quiet from the youngest members of the family “so that it will be a big surprise.” On Wednesday evening, their daughter Nicky, 17, and 14-year-old son Vincent found out about the win. Then on Thursday or Friday (today), the family planned to go for a long walk through Fort Langley. “We will go to the stores to say ‘thanks,’” Willie explained.

public notice Be Prepared: Winter Tips

• Clear nearby curbs and catch basins of leaves and debris, especially during heavy rain, as water running off the street will carry more leaves and debris into the curb. • Clear debris that has collected in driveway culverts resulting in blockages and check ditches in front of your property for blockages. • Clear snow off nearby curbs and off catch basins. • In case of snow, remove vehicles parked on the road in front of your property so municipal vehicles can complete work. • Avoid or delay driving whenever possible until snowfall slows or stops entirely. Reduced traffic increases opportunities for municipal vehicles to clear our roads. • When driving, plan for increased travel time to your destination and ensure your vehicle is properly equipped. • Place snow shoveled from your sidewalk and driveway onto your lawn to the right of the driveway. This will prevent snowplows from plowing snow back into your driveway. • 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.

Spartans survive hectic first half

Jock scraps

Trinity Western ran the volleyball gauntlet after playing 40 games over three months.

More teams than ever will play in a girls ice hockey tournament over the holiday season.

The Trinity Western University men’s volleyball team had about as busy a first half schedule as possible. From their trip to Russia to their cross-Canada preseason journey to their 10-game Canada West (CW) docket, in all, Trinity Western played 40 games in three months. With the Spartans hosting this year’s CIS national championship March 4-6, the first half of the year has been largely about the process of learning and developing the team style. It’s also been about throwing inexperienced players into the fire, as TWU was forced to play much of the semester without the likes of Marc Howatson, Brad Kufske, Devyn Plett, Dan Jansen Van Doorn, and Derek Thiessen. But while injuries have been an issue this year, the Spartans have responded well and have had key contributions from all areas of their roster as they went into the break still the No. 4-ranked team in the CIS and sporting an 8-2 (CW) record. “Forty matches, two continents and five injuries,” said coach Ben Josephson.

A record number of teams will take part in this year’s Angels on Ice tournament, hosted by the Langley Girls Ice Hockey Association. The tournament – which runs Dec. 27-30 at the Sportsplex, Langley Twin Rinks, and the Langley Events Centre – is expected to draw 57 teams, 18 more entries than last year. Teams ranging from atom to juvenile (ages eight to 18) are coming from as far away as Ontario, Yukon, and the U.S. to participate. The Ontario squad is competing in the midget rep division. The local association has 12 teams and more than 160 players registered this season. All 12 Langley teams are involved in this year’s Angels tournament.

“We hoped to go through as much adversity in different scenarios as possible this semester and I believe we more than accomplished that goal. All the matches and training provided some great oncourt experience for some of the guys who were not expected to see that much floor time. It also let a few players blossom beyond what we were expecting, which was great to see.” The key for TWU in the first half was its heavy blocking and limiting the opposition’s attack at the net via a team whose average height is six foot, five inches. After 10 games, the Spartans are second in CW with 3.31 blocks per set and have four players in the CW top 10 in blocks with Lucas Van Berkel leading the conference (1.68 per set), Dan Jansen Van Doorn fifth in CW (1.23 per set), Rudy Verhoeff tied for seventh (1.07 per set), and Josh Doornenbal 10th (one per set). Trinity Western sits third in hitting percentage (18.8 per cent) and twice held the opposition to less than three per cent attacking. The Spartans do lead the conference in service

Trinity Western University’s Rudy Verhoeff, seen in action against Thompson Rivers University, leads the Spartans in kills per game. aces with 1.32 per set, are fourth in hitting percentage (28.1 per cent), fifth in kills (12.4 per set) and seventh in assists (11.5 per set). Where TWU has struggled has been in its passing – which would drastically improve if Howatson can return to full strength – where the team is averaging just 8.4 digs per game (eighth in CW). Individually, Verhoeff leads the team in kills with 3.61 per game (fifth in CW), while Van Berkel leads the Spartans in hitting percentage (33.3 per cent, eighth in CW) and service aces (0.38 per set, tops in CW). Setter Ben Ball is having another impressive season

as he’s averaging 10.5 assists per set (second in CW). Second half Shortly after Christmas, the Spartans get right back at it, as the sprint to nationals begins in earnest. Trinity Western is hosting the Spartan Holiday Classic Jan. 3-5, then will get one quick breather before they host Calgary Jan. 21-22. Calgary beat TWU in the CIS gold medal game last year, and is currently ranked third in the CIS. The TWU men then travel to Saskatchewan and Brandon before wrapping up the regular season at home with a big matchup against currently 9-1 Manitoba.

Tapp breaks records

Langley Olympians Swim Club member Jake Tapp put in a record-breaking performance in Dubai this past week, swimming for Canada at the 10th world short course (25-metre) swimming championships. Tapp, who competed for Canada at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, broke senior Canadian records in the 100m individual medley (52.62 seconds) and 200m backstroke (1:52.16). He also holds the 100m backstroke Canadian record from 2009. At the world championships, Tapp placed seventh in both the 100m IM and 200m backstroke.

Ringers make Games squad

B.C.’s ringette team, which is preparing for the 2011 Canada Winter Games, has a heavy Langley influence. BC Ringette’s Canada Winter Games team staff, led by head coach Richard White, has selected the 16 athletes who will represent the province at the 2011 Games in Halifax.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Be ambitious – show talents, display support for others, work hard, protect projects, but launch new ideas, ventures Thursday onward, not before. Sunday will be chore-filled. Relationships loom in importance Monday/Tuesday, but friction is more prevalent than harmony. Realize this is not your decade to win wars – battles maybe, not wars. (On the other hand, you can hop on an elevator of accomplishment if you co-operate.) Deep changes, finances, intimacy and health factors head for a successful conclusion Wednesday to Friday. Delays end! Saturday’s gentle, happy and wise! Taurus April 20-May 20: Wider understanding, compassion, love, far travel, legal matters, advertising, statistics, insurance, religion, concepts, higher education – these come to the fore. Life feels more serene. Still, there are numerous problems Sunday to Wednesday morning – in these very areas. These are complex, subtle problems, in which solutions and causes seem to mingle. Your best approach, unless you have a clear idea, is to sit and wait it out. Recent delays end by Thursday, so you can march forth in relationships, love, negotiations and contracts this day forward. Friday morning’s lucky for these! Gemini May 21-June 20: Mysteries, secrets, psychological depths, intimacy, sexual yearnings, subconscious promptings, large finances, investments and debt, lifestyle changes and commitments – these fill your days over the weeks ahead. Don’t start anything (especially in these areas) before Thursday. You would get caught in an eternal circling around a problem. But Thursday onward promises success. (However, realize this is not a big investment year, with the exception of investment in your own career/ business.) Health matters are significant for several weeks. Enlist a doctor, if needed. Relationships please Saturday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: The accent lies on relationships, agreements, negotiations, relocation, opportunities, dealings with the public, and love. This area has become the prime one of your life, and will remain so to at least 2024. You’ve already discovered that others are more stubborn, yet more attractive than they were last decade, and that you must change to accommodate them. Another hint of this arrives Sunday. The choice is love or alienation: nothing in-between. Arguments might arise to midweek (Wednesday). Be diplomatic! Romance, exciting meetings arise Wednesday to Friday. Woo someone! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Start no important projects, buy nothing significant, before Dec. 30. An old flame might appear this week or next, but it’s almost too late, sort of “life’s afterthought.” Your home continues to be sweet, affectionate. The end of this month and early January will favour re-decorating or purchasing property. “Vaguely” schedule that now, put aside the time. Happiness and social delights visit Sunday/ Monday. You might receive a loving message. A prospective relationship offers good romance, bad marriage. Leave commitment decisions for 2011. A month of work and health issues begins Tuesday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Sweet love and a winning streak fill the weeks ahead! If single, you’ll definitely be attracted to someone. An “instant wedding” could occur. However, realize two things: one, anyone first met (or affair begun) Sunday through Wednesday will always contain jealousy or resentment; and two, in general, loves begun between 2004 and next March (2011) will tend toward unpredictable surprises and sudden changes. Take care with money Monday/ Tuesday. Friends, travel and communications veer toward success Thursday/Friday. Home, family, or an intimate crowd please you most Friday eve, Saturday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Delays end Thursday. Don’t start anything before then. This week and the next few nudge you into domestic surroundings and a restful stance. Various problems arise Sunday to Wednesday. You might decide to end a relationship. This is complex, with pluses and minuses. If you feel a calm, quiet disappointment about this situation, that’s your answer. Sunday provides one more clue that this decade focuses on a deep, major change of home. That might be a change of address, or other change. It’s necessary, so flow with it. Chase money Thursday through Friday morning: your luck’s high! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Don’t start any projects or relationships before Thursday. Communications, travel, casual friendships, paperwork and details fill this week and the next few – they will transform this entire decade. Shorter-term, problems and flaws become apparent in these Sunday to Wednesday, connected to work issues or more private, secret shortcomings. Well, work with a good heart. By Wednesday p.m. your energy and charisma rise, and you’re headed toward success, harmony, even love, by Friday daytime! Friday night and Saturday are easy, sensual, good for spending and wooing (not necessarily linked). Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The weeks ahead feature money, earnings, spending, selling, possessions and rote learning. A major change rolls slowly through this zone all this decade and half of next. You can build a castle of money! Sunday holds a clue, probably involving your career, ambitions or status. You’re happy Monday to Wednesday, but you face problems and barriers in money and social wishes: be patient. Though you’re tired Thursday/Friday, luck accompanies government or school applications, spiritual and charity efforts. Your energy and charisma rise in time for a New Year’s party! Recent delays end.

EASY!

Dec. 26 - Jan. 1 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Your energy, charisma and confidence surge – for a few weeks. But don’t start anything before Thursday. Until then, handle two concerns: one, you must decide between ending or investing further (more time/effort) in a particular ambition or career direction. If you can’t decide, wait until Thursday/Friday, when you’ll get a lucky glimpse of your future, and how to get there. The second concern is more important, and centres on Sunday: your entire “self” is changing: what you want, and want to be. Think this through Sunday, ponder, take your thoughts seriously. All is good! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Continue to lie low, rest and contemplate for the few weeks ahead. You’ll deal with government agencies, institutions or charitable agencies. Be spiritual. Plan for the future – but don’t make any plans before Thursday. Sunday to Wednesday contains a few subtle hints that your inner world needs transformation. Perhaps your inner anger doesn’t “fit” your larger sense of right and wrong. What’s out of kilter? Be ambitious Thursday through Friday morning – your efforts could end with a stroke of luck! Your social side and optimism emerge just in time for New Years! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Wishes come true, flirtations invite you and your popularity rises – this week and the next couple. Plans and optimism hover around money and possessions. However, proceed cautiously before Thursday – start nothing, not even a relationship. And realize your hopes and your “net worth” are not in agreement – and “net worth” has the final say. Your hopes need a revision, as Sunday will show (subtly or not). When your view turns unselfish, turns to wider topics such as real love, true luck and success enter – Thursday into Friday morning. Saturday’s ambition is achievable! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
