Schools stayed open, and extra plows and warm temperatures helped clear the roads after 15 centimetres of snow fell overnight Wednesday.

A few cars got stuck, and no doubt a few people were late for work, but in general Langley appears to have passed through the heaviest snow of the year without many problems. Snow began falling heavily between 8 and 9 p.m. across Langley Tuesday. Forewarned by the weather forecasts, Langley Township road crews were out in force with their snowplows. “Actually, things are shaping up rather well right now,” Terry Veer, Township roads manager told the Langley Advance. This is the heaviest single-day snowfall since the Township beefed up its fleet of plows and salting trucks.

The increase was in response to the heavy snows of 2008, and public complaints about a lack of plowing. Veer said things were looking “dicey” around 3 a.m. Wednesday, but temperatures soon warmed up and the snow turned to rain by 6 a.m.

While public schools remained open, a few private schools in Langley closed. The Langley School District said its special needs buses did not run Wednesday, and Trinity Western University cancelled its morning classes.

Animal welfare

LAPS targets Pepsi online contest cash Langley’s animal shelter is counting on public votes to help snag $100,000. by Matthew Claxton


That helped the workers get a handle on the remaining snow. While Veer heard reports of a few cars stuck in the snow, there were no reports to the police of serious accidents overnight. Veer said people seemed to have heeded warnings to stay off the roads for the most part.

Dogs and cats shouldn’t drink Pepsi. But the fizzy soft drink could be a big boon to the Langley Animal Protection Society. LAPS is taking part in the Pepsi Refresh Project to win $100,000 through online voting, competing with dozens of other worthy charities from across Canada. Sean Baker, the executive director of the Patti Dale Animal Shelter, is hoping that Langley residents can put LAPS over the top. Baker and his fellow staffers already know exactly what they would spend the money to buy: a new pet training building. “We could have large groups, we could have school groups, we could have dog events,” Baker said. The building has been in the plans since the Patti Dale shelter was first built. But there hasn’t been enough money to see it through to construction. A $100,000 prize would do the job nicely. Baker wants LAPS and the shelter expand their goal of educating people and pets. LAPS already makes sure that everyone

who adopts a dog at the shelter undertakes some obediance training with their new animal. They’d like to offer further classes after the adoption is complete, or for members of the public who bought their animals from friends, breeders, or pet stores. “We really believe that it would improve the lives of not only the pets, but the people in our community,” Baker said. The building itself would be quite simple and spartan. Lights are a must, but heat would be optional. All it really needs is to have a roof and four

walls. Currently, LAPS does some training during July, August, and September. But those events can be scuttled, or made uncomfortable for both man and beast, by sudden downpours. A building is the only way to provide the level of year-round training service they envision. That’s why Baker and the other staff and volunteers jumped at the chance to take part in the Pepsi vote. A volunteer brought the contest to Baker’s attention, and he signed up the shelter right away. LAPS has been as high as seventh out of more than 90 other projects in their category, Baker said. That’s reassuring, but numbers of total votes aren’t shown on the site. He’s hoping that a wave of public support can push LAPS to the top. “What’s interesting about it is that you can vote every day for your cause,” he said. The voting began on Jan. 4 and concludes on Feb. 28.

Candidate questions

School trustee by-election



Here’s what else candidates were asked. • This by-election has been called due to the sudden resignation of the board chair in September. Former board chair Joan Bech wrote a letter saying that she was resigning due to pressure on her from unnamed trustees to resign. The Auditor General’s Report cited a “culture of mistrust” among the currently elected trustees. • Since September, the board has limited the public’s questions in Question Period at the end of board meetings to written questions only. If elected, would you vote in a public meeting to revert to past practice of people asking their own questions at the mic? • All Grade 4 and 7 students must write the Fundamental Skills Assessment tests. What is your opinion on the value of this province-wide standardized testing and what changes, if any, would you like to see made to the current practice? • What are the two most important indicators of a quality public education system and How would you support/encourage/maintain these? • The board working with senior management, has a responsibility to ensure that the district’s finances are kept in order. What skills and experience do you have to provide the kind of financial oversight required by a trustee to ensure the fiscal viability/strength of School District 35? • Over the past five years, the board of education has voted to close six neighbourhood schools. What is your position on neighbourhood schools and their value to the community? • What are the most important leadership qualities a trustee must possess? What are your three strongest leadership traits and how will they affect how you make decisions as a trustee? • Some school boards around the province have created needs-based budgets to reflect the true costs of offering all the programs and services they see as essential for maintaining quality educational services for all students. If elected, would you be prepared to create and submit a needs-based budget? Why or why not? • This year 318 Langley teachers informed their principals during Bill 33 consultations that they “disagreed” with the class size and/or composition of their classes. Would you be prepared to visit these classes and meet with these teachers to discuss their safety and educational concerns? Would you support spending the unanticipated additional $1.24 million in student funding from the Ministry this year to alleviate overcrowded and educationally inappropriate classes by creating new classes? • In October, every superintendent across the province is required to submit a report publicly detailing the numbers of classes exceeding the Bill 33 limits for size and composition at the elementary and secondary levels. Trustees routinely adopt these reports, though they continue to document the degree to which we are exceeding limits. Would you be prepared to refuse to adopt this report? If no, why not? If yes, what positives would you see as an outcome of publicly acknowledging the failure of Bill 33?

Election complaint laid Concerns are being expressed about a candidate at a closed meeting. by Heather Colpitts

People are questioning why school trustee candidate Hattie Hogeterp was invited to a closed-door meeting of Willoughby area schools Monday. One of the candidates has gone to elections officials who say it doesn’t appear to be a violation. Senior administration, school administration for R.E. Mountain Secondary and its feeder elementary schools, with union, PAC, and School Planning Council reps, met as part of a series of stakeholder meetings about Willoughby slope issues. Acting school board chair Rod Ross addressed the group, reminding them that the election was Jan. 15 and thanked Hogeterp for attending the meeting which had about 30-40 people. Candidate Brian Leonard put his concerns to the chief electoral officer. He received a couple of calls Tuesday morning asking why he didn’t attend. He’s checked to ensure he didn’t miss an invitation or meeting notice on a key issue in the district. “Would have loved to have been there,” he told the Langley Advance. “Isn’t this just what we’ve been talking about for weeks – new, open, honest discourse?” he added. “For me it’s been an education.” Candidate Cecelia Reekie said this “went over the line” during an election. “I believe that, should this kind of behaviour be accepted and tolerated by other trustees and senior management,

then we have a long way to go to build trust and positive working relationships,” Reekie said. Candidate Ed Wood was not invited. “I was not invited and I did not know about it,” he said. “It sounds pretty strange to me.” Donna Mason, the president of CUPE local 1260, said she found it inappropriate. Mason noted that, since the candidate isn’t a resident stakeholder, she could see no reason for her attendance. “It was an unfair advantage for her,” she commented. She also thought it was inappropriate for Ross to comment about the candidate to the group. Mason said she understood it was a private meeting based on the letter informing her group about it from the superintendent. “That was not a private, by invitation only meeting,” said district communications manager Craig Spence. Any questions about policies related to trustee candidate campaigning would have to be put to the chief electoral officer, he said. The chief electoral office is a Langley Township staff member overseeing the election on behalf of the district. Ross could not be reached before press time. In her reply to Leonard’s questions, chief elections officer Susan Palmer said she was advised that Ross and Hogeterp thought the meeting was open to the public and that he invited her “and that there was not an invitation or notification whatsoever by the school district.” It is Palmer’s understanding that the district may be reviewing policy.

More drunk drivers were caught, and fewer people died on the roads this winter than average, the RCMP said this week. Stats from across the province were released by the RCMP’s traffic services this week. During the 2010 winter Counterattack campaign, there were five fatal accidents in B.C. That’s up from three last year, but down from eight in 2008, and 12 in 2007. Of those fatal crashes, one was in the Lower Mainland, one in the north, one in the province’s south east, and two on

Vancouver Island. The numbers from this year and last point to a trend of declining fatalities, said Cpl. Jamie Chung of the B.C. RCMP’s traffic services. “Police believe the road checks our officers conducted during the campaign were effective in reducing the number of people killed at the hands of impaired drivers,” Chung said. Hundreds of drivers were arrested or lost their cars during the campaign. Just in the second half of the Counterattack program, about 200 were criminally charged, another 382 got three-day roadside suspensions, five got weeklong suspensions, and 670 received 90 day driving bans and had their cars confiscated for a month. Another 159 drivers were charged with excessive speed and lost their cars for a week.


Drugstore attack about drugs by Matthew Claxton

The Surrey RCMP are looking for a pair of robbers who held up a Cloverdale pharmacy and attacked the employees last month. On Dec. 6, just before 1 p.m., two men stormed into the drug store in the 5600 block of 177B Avenue. The two men demanded “oxycontins,” referring to the prescription painkiller oxycontin, often used as a street drug. Both employees were viciously assaulted and threatened with a knife, and forced to open the safe. One staff member was locked outside the store during the course of the robbery, said Surrey Mounties.

Police are appealing to the public to help solve the brazen attack and bring to justice the men who traumatized the two store employees. The men are Caucasian, both in their twenties, standing 5’8” to 5’10”, and both wore dark-coloured hoodies, dark gloves, jeans, and running shoes. The first man to enter the store had a medium build, bushy eyebrows, a square jawline and a high hairline. His accomplice had a slimmer build and was taller, and had two light grey or white horizontal stripes on each arm of his sweatshirt. Anyone with information can call the Surrey RCMP at 604-599-0502, or to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800222-8477.

The youngsters were imitating the “green men” made famous for taunting visiting players sitting in the penalty box during Vancouver Canucks’ home games. Despite the local “green men’s” cheerleading efforts, the Chiefs lost 4-3 in overtime to the Coquitlam Express (see story on page A31). Langley’s British Columbia Hockey League team returns to the LEC tomorrow night (Saturday), when they host the Penticton Vees. Opening faceoff is 7 p.m.

Officers foil wire thief As the price of metals rises, wire theft is again increasing in frequency. by Matthew Claxton

Langley Mounties nabbed a suspected wire thief over the weekend, only to discover he was also wanted on warrants in two other towns. Just before 3:30 a.m. on Jan. 9, the RCMP were called by a witness who said someone was stealing wire from the 20100 block of 70A Avenue. The caller gave detailed descriptions of a suspect and his car, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP. Police pulled over a matching vehicle in the area. “The officer noted the rear seat of the vehicle was filled with wire,” Marks said. The driver now faces charges of possession of stolen property, theft, and breaching a recognizance order. The man was also wanted in Surrey and Abbotsford, making his arrest in Langley a hat trick. Marks noted that reporting such thefts as they occur can help prevent dangerous situations. Last year, a wire theft knocked out the phone and pager system for Langley Memorial Hospital, throwing the communications system for doctors there into chaos. Wire thieves have apparently been targeting Langley wires, largely in rural areas, as the price of copper has again risen as the recent recession fades. NOW, more than ever, it’s important to plan ahead.

During these challenging economic times, making your final arrangements is crucial. By planning now, you eliminate the difficult decisions your family will have to make during the most difficult time of their lives. Plus, you lock in today’s lower prices. CALL NOW AND SAVE

Langley Events Centre

$100 million evaluation based on mid-construction assessment by Matthew Claxton

When politicians praised the Langley Events Centre as a $100 million building recently, it turns out they weren’t picking a number out of the air. Langley bed and breakfast owner Wally Martin wrote a letter to the Langley Advance,

questioning the claim by MLA Rich Coleman and others that the Township got a $100 million facility for $66.2 million. A few days later, Martin said, someone anonymously stuck a copy of a 2008 property assessment for the centre to his door. Grover, Elliott & Co. assessed the LEC and its land at $100,600,000 in 2008. That was while construction was still going on.

“It’s all a little weird,” Martin said. The document is a public one, prepared for the Township and for the Langley Development Group, the firm that oversaw construction of the LEC. Martin takes issue with placing a value on the LEC. “Public buildings, they have a cost, but they don’t have a value… in the tradition-

Township For the week of January 13, 2011


al sense of market value,” Martin said. Township administrator Mark Bakken said construction costs make up a part of how the property was assessed in 2008. Those costs have fluctuated since then, as the construction industry has slumped and recovered in the past three years. There hasn’t been an official assessment of the LEC’s value since the 2008 report.

Vote, if you find it worth effort If Joan Bech had stayed on as the chair of the Langley School Board, there would have been plenty of controversy about her commuting from the Sunshine Coast. But her fellow trustees decided that would be too long of a trip. So instead, the voters of Langley Township will have a by-election less than 11 months before the next full board election. Combine the short duration with the timing – the candidates launched their campaigns just before Christmas, and have been packing in their campaigning since New Year’s – and you have a perfect recipe for low voter turnout. But is this an important election? In some ways, yes. The board remains divided down the middle on many issues. It is still at the very beginning of the process of digging out of a giant hole of debt and deficits. Langley remains a community in flux, with rural schools slowly emptying, while urban schools are close to bursting at the seams with students. We may think 11 months is not a long time. But it’s long enough for key decisions to be made. Decisions about money, about catchment areas and schools, about the future of the district in the next several years. If you have informed yourself about the candidates and the issues, then by all means, turn out on Saturday and vote. Is this an important election? In some ways, no. By Sunday, there will still be six veteran trustees around the table, most of them legacies of several terms. Their views are known, their courses set. In the larger sense, the board’s actions are being dictated by the funding crunch, which leaves them with fewer options. If parents want to have an impact, there are more ways to take part than voting. Joining a school PAC, attending board meetings, and lobbying for issues that are vital to them will likely be more important in the long run than one vote. So vote, but remember that politics is about more than elections and by-elections. It’s about taking part. – M.C.

School trustee

Langley by-election gives local voters voice Dear Editor, It’s good that the provincial leadership candidates are discussing education, but teachers hope that issues more substantive than “merit pay” for teachers will be debated. This is merely a distraction from the real issue of under-funding of an increasingly impoverished public education system. Merit-pay proposer Kevin Falcon suggests that a Master Teacher program be adopted where teachers who “everyone knows” are superior mentor other teachers. He may find it interesting to note that Langley’s teacher Mentorship Program is just one of many programs axed this year in order to address the school district’s $13.5-million debt. Professional development funds for teachers have not increased since 1988. Langley district has 2,352 classes this year, compared to 2,450 last year, despite an increase of 184 full-time-equivalent students over last year’s projected enrolment. Langley has more than 735 classes which exceed the legislated limits of 30 students

per class or more than three students with special needs in each class. Nearly one third of Langley classes this year exceed legislated standards for class size and composition. Langley school board has responded with silence to concerns about students’ safety voiced by home economics and shop teachers at a November board meeting. In our view, this lack of response shows a shameful indifference to serious concerns brought to the attention of the board. While most Langley residents will not be eligible to vote for the Liberal or NDP leadership contestants, all residents of the Township are eligible to vote in this Saturday’s by-election for a new trustee. We hope they will take the time to vote for a candidate who is willing to truly listen to Langley parents, students, and staff, and not just allow them to speak.

Overpass more sense than fence

Dear Editor, I live on the south side of Fraser Highway and work at Langley Memorial Hospital. I admit to being one of the jaywalkers who crosses at 221st Street. Township council has voted to pay $50,000 to put in a fence. Wouldn’t it make more sense to use that money toward building a pedestrian overpass? ParkLane is doing a development on the south side of Fraser Highway. We were told at the open houses held in connection

with this development that an overpass was planned to connect a trail on the south side of Fraser Highway with the one on the north that runs past the firehall. Perhaps the Township, ParkLane, and the hospital could join forces to proceed with the overpass. There is not enough parking at the hospital. I walk to work as my small contribution to providing a space for someone else. One night I did walk home the long way, and crossed at the light at 222nd Street.

Langley trustee by-election

Choose the best candidate and vote – it’s important

[Editor’s note: The following letters and those appearing on our website have been edited to remove direct endorsements which would constitute election advertising.]

It’s important to vote

Dear Editor, Who is going to listen well? Who will ask tough questions? These, I believe, are the key questions in Saturday’s by-election for the vacant seat on Langley’s Board of Education. Our school district has been fragmented because previous trustees have not really listened to or considered, all of the interest groups and stakeholders. As a Langley citizen, parent and teacher, I believe this by-election is important. Vote on Saturday. Jonathan Dyck, Langley

Candidate stands out

Dear Editor, At the all-candidates meeting last Thursday [Trustee hopefuls tested at forum, Jan. 11, Langley Advance], one candidate emerged as the clear choice. There were questions asked which the other candidates could not really address, either due to a lack of understanding of the issues, or a failure to do their research ahead of time. G. McMann, Langley City

Wise vote needed

Dear Editor, I wonder if Rich Coleman or Mary Polak will make an eleventh-hour public endorsement of a trustee candidate, as they did in the last civic election. Of the candidates they endorsed

last time, four had been on the board while a $13-million debt was incurred by Langley district. Township voters need to vote in the by-election this Saturday, Jan. 15, and please vote wisely. Gary Meadowes, Langley

Trustees must serve

Dear Editor, The school trustee by-election on Jan. 15 is important for the community of Langley. Township residents have the opportunity to vote and ensure Langley School District has a fresh start in 2011. Trustees are elected to serve the community. It is a difficult but important job. Long-term planning is going to be key. We cannot change history or afford more mistakes. Diane Pona, Langley

Time to serve short

Dear Editor, There is only one candidate who also ran in the last election. I wonder where all those other passionate people are? They had the fire in them to make a difference in our school district in November 2008; where are they all now? Donna Robertson, Aldergrove

Mom preferred choice

Dear Editor, On Jan. 15, Langley will be going to the polls to select a new school trustee. I am not a parent, but at 28, the idea of having children has shifted from a distant thought to a more immediate possibility. I am biased because one of the candidates, Hattie Hogeterp, is my

Digital cameras added to enforcement arsenal

Langley is chosen to have four new digital red light cameras out of the 140 being installed. by Heather Colpitts

Red light cameras have been rebranded intersection safety cameras, but they still come with a $167 fine for those captured running the light. ICBC says the cameras are needed to help reduce the number of intersection crashes in this province. Between 2005 and 2009, the daily average number of crashes at intersections was more than 250. The issue was discussed at the Langley City council meeting Jan. 10. The cameras are at Fraser Highway and Highway 10 (near Willowbrook Shopping Centre), Glover Road at the Langley Bypass (near Kwantlen Polytechnic University), at 200th Street and 64th Avenue, and at 208th Street and 88th Avenue. “So there will be a significantly increased level of enforcement,” commented Gary Vlieg, the Langley City director of engineering. In contrast to Langley’s four cameras, Vancouver has 47 and Surrey has 29.


The spots where they were to be placed were decided based on the locations of the most serious crashes. “We looked at more than 1,400 intersections in the province,” explained

Crash zones

ICBC studied more than 1,400 intersections around the province before choosing the 140 most concerning. Here are crash figures for 2002 through 2008 for the four red camera locations in Langley. Highway 10/ Fraser Highway Average crashes per year: 104 Total number of injuries: 229

200th Street/ 64th Avenue

Adam Grossman, ICBC media rep. The aim is to stop people from running red lights. Grossman emphasized that people will not be ticketed unless they are “going through a solid red light.” That wouldn’t include, for instance, a driver who was waiting to make a left turn and then was forced to exit the intersection on a red light, or any other similarly legal driving manoeuvres.

Those caught going through a red light will also be receiving their tickets more quickly than before, with the new digital system. Grossman noted that revenues from fines go into the provincial Traffic Fine Revenue program, and municipalities receive funds from that, based on their own community policing and road safety efforts. Over the past decade, 30 film cameras were rotated around to various

88th Avenue/ 208th Street

Before the digital cameras were installed, film cameras had to be collected and the film in them processed before fines were issued by the police. The digital switch had a $23 million price tag for the technology, as well as program development which included researching programs in other countries, such as Australia and the United States. The program is expected to cost about $1.2 million to operate annually.

locations, so people never knew if the camera box at a particular intersection contained a film camera or not. Now 140 boxes around B.C. have digital cameras with the information transmitted wirelessly.

Freybe takes leaps and bounds to sustainability

Some companies recycle paper and bottles, others re-use water or recycle electronics. Freybe Gourmet Foods does them one better at their Langley plant. They recycle smoke. When Freybe, a locallyowned company that specializes in meats, built a new plant in Aldergrove nine years ago, the firm put a lot of thought and work into making the design green. Among other innovations, the building is modular. “This entire building, with the exception of the foundation, could literally be picked up and moved,” said Keith Smith, the sus-

Aside from its big-ticket energy and waste saving projects, Freybe also runs a number of smaller, less obvious initiatives, from encouraging employees to carpool, to highly efficient cooling systems for the building. Then there are a number of projects Smith is hoping to see get off the ground in the next few years. “We did entertain the idea of solar panels,” he said. In fact, while the project was delayed for costs reasons, a plan for a 480-collector array of panels for the plant does exist. They would be used to warm water on the site, thus cutting heating bills even further. There are also plans to recapture some of the steam emitted by the plant every day. It too, could be turned around and used for its heat value. On a hot day the plant can use 5,000 cubic metres of water.

Moving forward

Feds throw more money at job creation for youth Langley employers are being urged to apply for federal job funding, following a $10 million infusion in the program aimed at creating thousands of jobs for young people. Local MP Mark Warawa says he has been taking every opportunity possible in the past few days and weeks to invite local business owners to take advantage of what he calls a “significant investment” in the future. “This commitment will also support important

community services and strengthen the economy,” Warawa said. The budget for Canada Summer Jobs has been permanently increased by $10 million, bringing the total program budget to $107.5 million. “We are creating thousands of new jobs for young Canadians, so they can find employment and gain the skills and experience they need to succeed,” he said, noting it’s expected to create as many as 3,500 additional jobs

next summer. “I urge interested Langley employers to take advantage of this program,” said the MP. “In Langley, funding will be available to not-forprofit organizations, public-sector employers, and small businesses to create high-quality summer job opportunities for fulltime students,” Warawa said. “In our community sport, cultural and other special events could benefit, as well as notfor-profit organizations,

Credit union comes up with $11,000

Staff members at Aldergrove Credit Union, have come through again. One thing is always certain when it comes to this credit union, the 13member staff care about the communities they each live, work, and play in. Such was the case this week, when they announced that more than $11,000 was raised for the United Way – both the Fraser Valley and Lower Mainland divisions. The money was raised through internal staff fundraising campaigns at the branches in Langley, Aldergrove, Abbotsford, and Mission. “As in previous years, our staff came through and collectively raised over $11,000 to fund much needed causes in our communities,” said CEO Gus Hartl. “The United Way helps so many in need and

our staff are always right there to also lend a hand.” Aldergrove Credit Union, is apparently rebranding itself as Aldergrove Financial Group, to encompass the insurance and financial planning division as well. But that matters not, in this case. It’s all about the people inside this business who have made another significant contribution to the community.

On the union front

Not many locals would think of Rogers Arena in Vancouver, if I mention the Langley business community. Understandable, but there is a strong local tie between this community and the downtown arena where the Canucks play – believe it or not. The CLAC, an independent Canadian labour union representing 50,000 workers from a wide sector of employers, is based right here in Willoughby, and they’re in the process of ratifying a new four-year deal for the 530 staff (housekeeping, security, hosting, and conversion) at Rogers Arena. The contract includes wage increases equal to 12 per cent over the term with provisions for better sick leave and vacation benefits. A new provision would see security personnel eligible for a bonus to offset the cost of annual security licensing.

Musical theatre


by Heather Colpitts

A Murrayville musician has ambitions to make it big.


he Fraser Valley Gilbert and Sullivan Society is looking for a few good men, a duchess and a foster mom. In fact, the society that is staging The Gondoliers needs to fill about 17 roles and another 10 chorus roles for the show which runs May 11-21 at the Surrey Arts Theatre. Auditions are Jan. 18 and 20 with callbacks Jan. 23. The society is inviting anyone 16 and older to try out for a part. People are asked to prepare an audition song from a Gilbert and Sullivan show or a Broadway show. The society provides an accompanist but people must provide a binder with their sheet music in it when they audition. Those without sheet music can use a CD or cassette (no vocals) to play their accompaniment music. There are parts for men and women in the tale about a young bride who goes to Venice and cannot find her intended, a future king of the fictional land of Barataria, because he was entrusted to a drunken gondolier. By chance the monarch looks like the gondolier’s son. When the bride finally finds her man, it turns out he and the gondolier’s son have married local girls. People are asked to book an audition time (fvgssproducer@gmail. com). Rehearsals Sunday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings starting Jan. 30.

Storyteller has a tale to tell in song by Bethany Leng


he art of telling a story is as old as the human race. From the moment we were given life, we began to tell

a story. And for Murrayville’s Tucker Green, storytelling is as important as it gets. “I work towards great storytelling,” he said. “It’s important. It’s how history is passed on.” The 25-year-old draws inspiration from singers such as Ryan Adams and Bruce Springsteen to create his own take of Americana, describing it as nostalgic and “moody.” “There are certain emotions that come up when I hear a song like [Springsteen’s] Atlantic City; when I hear that great old-fashioned storytelling,” he explained. “When I write, I try to portray that [emotion] with really trying to say things plainly.” “Timelessness... that’s the ideal. I think that happens when people just sit and tell it how it is.” And Green aims to tell his stories as simply and with as much real emotion as he can. His current album, Halfway to Daylight, was released this summer and tells a classic coming of age story. “It’s about being 24 or 25 and being okay with life,” explained Green. “It’s not going to be what you expected in high school and that’s alright – it’s better.” Green should know – in high school he was in a band called Karis for a couple of years, a band he thought would end up being his career. “We totally thought

we were going to be rock stars,” he said with a laugh. “I now have very little ambition to be a rock star. I get to produce, I get to write, I get to record, and it’s awesome.” Green even graduated high school a semester early to pursue music, but it wasn’t until two and a half years ago that he decided to go for it full time. “It was a total fork in the road,” he said. “You’re either going to do it or say you’re going to and not, and then think about it all the time.” After deciding to pursue music, Green recorded a solo, self-written EP called The Demos. “Basically it’s a bunch of songs about heartbreak,” he chuckled, adding every musician has similar

Gerald Hobbis was just seven years old when he was struck by lightning and lost the ability to speak. Kids started calling Hobbis, “Captain” or “Cap” thanks to a popular comic strip that featured a captain who also didnπt speak. A couple years later, Capπs speech came back and at the age of 13 he told his mother he would one day own a bicycle shop bearing his name. In 1940, he moved his original basement business to New Westminster and the first Capπs Bicycles store opened. Today, more than 75 years after Cap started working with bicycles, there are five Capπs bicycle stores in the Lower Mainland, each familyowned and operated. Cap’s son, Grant Hobbis, now runs the downtown Langley store, located at 203rd Street and Logan Avenue, with his wife, Karen and their three children – which

makes three generations of Hobbis’ involved in the family business. Grant’s father knew when he started his first store in New Westminster that the business would last for two reasons: bicycles would always be around and there would always be children to ride them. Those two reasons ensure the business thrives, although it isnπt just children doing the riding. “More and more adults are riding bikes,” said Grant, continuing to explain that people are choosing this mode of transportation for a number of reasons. “It saves money on gas and helps people to be healthy,” he explained, adding: “Itπs good to get families out from behind screens.” Their 8,000square-foot Langley store offers a wide variety of bicycles to suit any style. The store services bikes as well, and offers a full range of bikes for toddlers to “golden-agers,” clothing, helmets, baskets, bells, and other accessories too. “Even the old-fashioned bicycles are sought after,” said Grant, going on to say that bicycles are here to stay. “When he (Gerald) started, times were tough. He figured that bicycles are good when times are tough because people need to get around (and) bicycles are always going to be around.”

fragrant, but it’s a frustrating little beauty, because after flowering, it splits into many tiny bulblets. Many tulips do the same thing, and one solution some tulip gardeners try is planting the original bulb at least eight inches deep. The same answer has been proposed for Iris danfordiae. It’s hard to imagine these little bulbs can generate enough energy to produce an eight-inch stem. But it’s definitely worth trying, because other bulbs and corms can rise from the depths. For instance, when I tried to eradicate the plain orange crocosmia from a garden bed, I found “dropper” corms at different levels connected by thin roots in a vertical chain. The deepest were at least a foot down in the soil. If you don’t dig up all those deep, deep corms (and it turned out I didn’t) the crocosmia bed reincarnates in a few years. Snowdrops also make dropper corms. Droppers can be annoying for gardeners, but for the plant, it’s a brilliant tactic which ensures survival if animals eat the uppermost bulb or planthunters harvest it.

Part One

Virginia’s World Was Shrinking

Knives in the kitchen


ne of my favourite things about being a chef is that I get to play with knives. That may sound adventurous, but knife skills and safe cutting practices are a serious subject in the kitchen. With some basic knowledge, you can start to overcome any cutting intimidation you may have. In this column I will discuss the tools themselves: knives. My next column will focus on cutting boards, and a third column will cover cutting techniques. There are many choices of knives as cutting tools in your kitchen. The marketplace is saturated with everything from mail-order deals to high-end specialties. You usually get what you pay for. Before you reach for your credit card when you see the full TV collection of Ginsu knives for only $19.99, think about it. How well are those knives manufactured? Once the $20 is divided between the TV air-time cost, production of the commercial, and any middle-men involved (marketers, etc.), how much is actually going toward

manufacturing the knives? A profit must be made as well. If you are looking to start a good-quality knife collection, you should purchase knives that are made from high-carbon stainless steel. The high-carbon content in stainless steel is what ensures the steel is strong, and is important for keeping a sharp edge. A knife can be made from stainless steel, but unless it is has a high-carbon content as well, it will lose its sharpness very quickly. Start with a standard chef’s knife. Other than to cut bread, it is the most versatile knife in the kitchen, and can be used for almost any application. It offers a rounded top edge of the blade that facilitates a rocking motion to ease most cutting/slicing preparations. Next is a good-quality serrated knife for bread-cutting. The serrated edge will not only produce perfect slices without squashing the bread, but it also brings relief to producing extremely thin cuts of fruits and vegetables. One should also purchase a paring knife, because a chef’s knife might be overkill for those small jobs.

On Cooking by Chef Dez

Chef Dez is a food columnist and culinary instructor in the Fraser Valley. Visit him at

Those are the three main knives that should create the foundation of your knife collection. From this point on, you can add other knives, such as a carving knife, filet knife, cleaver, vegetable knife, etc. Most good-quality knives will offer a full tang, meaning that the steel blade will run through the full length of the handle. That will offer more balance and control. Most importantly, ask questions before you buy – and ask to handle the knives you’re considering buying, to ensure they offer comfortable companionship with your unique hand. If a retail store is not informative about its products, and will not allow you to handle them, then you should take your business to one that will.

Maureen Pepin

Rotary rewards aid to graduating teens

Spreading cheer Marion Murray, Carl Rorison, Mary Harker, Leonie Smith and Grace Jones are some of the Harrison Landing seniors complex residents who volunteered to make poinsettia napkin rings. They were delivered with Langley Meals on Wheels products over the holidays, a project to brighten up the day for MOW clients.

One of Langley’s prominent volunteers has been honoured by Rotary for decades of work. by Matthew Claxton Someone showing up on her doorstep with an award was “the last thing I expected,” Maureen Pepin said. But that’s what happened to Pepin earlier this month. The longtime Langley resident and retired teacher was made a Paul Harris Fellow, an award distributed by Rotary International. The award was doubly surprising, as Pepin isn’t even a Rotary member. But her work distributing scholarships to Langley high school graduates hadn’t gone unnoticed by Rotary Club of Langley Central. She began handling scholarships 27 years ago, as the viceprincipal of Aldergrove Community Secondary. Pepin lined up scholarships from donors, made the contacts between donors and schools, and got the money to the kids. Her work has helped hundreds of students get funding for post-secondary education. She kept working at the task after retiring, and has done it every year since. Pepin has also been involved in a wide variety of other community projects over the years, and she and her husband Fred have been active in working to preserve the heritage of Langley. Pepin said she has no idea who suggested her for the award. The Paul Harris Fellowship is named after the founder of Rotary, and represents a $1,000 donation to international charitable efforts. Past Langley Central president Dennis Ratcliffe said the club’s board chose Pepin because of what he described as “tireless” community service. Her work represents the Rotary ideal of service above self, he said.

Township council

Parking tickets for RVs Another RV owner is complaining about the Township’s bylaws on parking. by Matthew Claxton Brad Mason is a former Langley Township worker who finds himself at odds with the Township’s RV parking rules. Mason told council he finds the rules unfair. He has received visits from bylaw officers about his camper, which spends much of the year on a pickup truck parked in his driveway. Township rules forbid recreational vehicles – including campers, RVs, boats, and many trailers – from being parked in front of homes or in driveways. They must be parked alongside or behind houses in most neighbourhoods. Mason, a Walnut Grove resident, can’t fit his vehicle into a back or side yard, and like his neighbours, said he’s facing paying tickets, or up to $1,000 in storage fees. Mason said several neighbours have also been ticketed or warned. He believes one complaint from a neighbour triggered visits to several homes by bylaw officials. “It pits neighbours against neighbours, because you’re wondering which neighbour is complaining,” he said. He also complained that the bylaw isn’t based on safety issues, or if the vehicle is blocking a street or sidewalk. “One size doesn’t fit all,” he said, noting that his camper qualifies as an RV, but doesn’t take up any more room than the pickup truck by itself. Councillor Kim Richter asked Township staff to compare how bylaws are applied in neighbouring towns. Residents in several neighbourhoods, including Aldergrove, have complained and lobbied for changes to the Township bylaw after being ticketed.

Express work overtime to roll past Chiefs by Troy Landreville

The Langley Chiefs couldn’t find their stride Wednesday at the Langley Events Centre. The Chiefs played catch-up all night, and in the end, fell 4-3 in overtime to the visiting Coquitlam Express. The hosts were awarded back-to-back powerplays in the first period but couldn’t capitalize. Langley head coach Harvey Smyl felt the Chiefs’ inability to cash in on their early man advantages may have shifted momentum Coquitlam’s way. “We had some good jump early, but we didn’t execute on our powerplay in the first period and that might have been the difference in the game,” Smyl said. “The things we did poorly cost us. The penalties we took, and our penalty killing wasn’t as good as it normally is. Two of the goals against us, we just didn’t get our job done defensively.” Smyl credited Coquitlam, which went 3-6 with the man advantage, for playing a strong road game. Even with the win, the Express remain last in the eightteam British Columbia Hockey League’s Coastal Conference with a 15-191-9 record. “They played extremely well,” Smyl said. “They always play us hard. It doesn’t matter about the standings, they and Surrey are huge divisional rivals and we are

always in a battle against those teams.” The Express’s Riley McIntosh sealed the win on a four-on-three powerplay, after Langley defenceman Trace Strahle was sent off for tripping 2:12 into the first overtime period. The Chiefs tied the game at 3-3 with 4:05 remaining in regulation. Langley captain Trevor Gerling drove to the net, and was stopped by Express goaltender Khaleed Devji. The puck stopped a couple of centimetres short of the goalline before Chiefs’ forward Josh Myers stuffed it into the yawning cage for his team-leading 29th goal of the season. Coquitlam led 2-1 after the first period and 3-2 after 40 minutes. Forward Kit Sitterley and defenceman Dillon Scholten (with his first of the campaign) scored the other Langley goals. The Chiefs pocketed a point for the OT loss and remain second place in the Coastal Conference with a 25-15-1-6 record.

Haber dealt

The Chiefs shipped veteran defenceman Brad Haber to the Winkler Flyers of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League Monday afternoon, at the BCHL trade deadline It appears Haber, who came to the Chiefs after being released by the Western Hockey League’s Red Deer Rebels early in the season, was caught up in a numbers game. Considered by the team to be a key member while with the Chiefs, Haber was one of seven experienced rearguards on the roster.

Troy Landreville/Langley Advance

Langley Chiefs captain Trevor Gerling made a move between a pair of Coquitlam Express checkers in the third period of Wednesday’s British Columbia Hockey League game at the Langley Events Centre. Gerling assisted on two Chiefs’ goals during Langley’s 4-3 overtime loss to the Express. (Bottom right) Chiefs forward Josh Hansen rubbed Coquitlam Express’s Jacob Charles out against the boards. Someone had to be moved and the Aldergrove native proved to have value for a Winkler team looking to increase its depth. “Brad did a good job for us while he was here but we are committed to the six guys we have and with Brad being a 20year-old, we wanted to make sure he was playing and getting a regular shift,” noted Smyl, who is also the Chiefs’ general manager. Prior to joining the Chiefs, Haber played 12 WHL games with the Seattle Thunderbirds in 2007/08, 59 with the Thunderbirds in 2008/09

and split between Seattle (26 games) and Red Deer (33 games) last season. ••• The Chiefs return to the LEC Saturday when they host perennial Interior Conference powerhouse Penticton Vees.

It wasn’t easy, but the Trinity Western Spartans men’s hockey team managed to get past a feisty Selkirk Saints squad by a 3-2 count Saturday at the Langley Events Centre. After beating the now 9-2-0 Thompson Rivers WolfPack Friday night, the Spartans faced the onewin Saints Saturday and, despite beating Selkirk 9-1 in their last meeting, still needed a third period goal from Trevor Edwards to break a 2-2 tie. “It was way too close for what I anticipated,” TWU coach Dwayne Lowdermilk said, after the game. “The fact is a win is a win but we got some bounces yesterday and I think we got some bounces again today. We want to win and that’s what I said to the guys.”

Early in the first period and with TWU on the powerplay, Edwards opened the scoring with a shot that found the top corner on the short side. But while the Spartans continued to carry the play for the majority of the first 20 minutes – finishing the opening period with a 19-8 advantage in shots – it was Selkirk getting on the board next to tie the score. With the game knotted 11 in the second period, the Saints took their first lead of the contest on a goal from Brendan Madlung. Four minutes later, TWU got back on even terms when Benton Nickel, standing at the blueline, took a rip at a rolling puck which found the net. After tying the game, momentum tilted towards the Spartans, who were unable to capitalize on the puck possession disparity as they outshot the Saints 15-10 in the middle frame. The deadlock heading

into the final period set up Edwards’ game winner at 9:45 of the third frame when he pounced on his own rebound in the slot, and fired the puck into the open net. ••• The Spartans capitalized on a dominant second period, one in which they notched two goals in 40 seconds, and a shutdown third period to knock off Thompson Rivers 2-1 Friday at the LEC. After allowing a goal 23 seconds into the contest and muddling their way through the first period, the Spartans found their legs in the second and third frames as they outskated and outworked the previously 9-1 WolfPack en route to TWU’s first win of the year over one of the top four teams in the BC Intercollegiate Hockey League. • More online at, click on “Sports”

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Remain ambitious to Wednesday – last-minute advances (especially Sunday and Wednesday) can be strong ones. You might have to struggle with foundational, home or family issues, though. The government, head office or an institution could offer splendid help Wednesday. (Take power naps Monday/Tuesday.) A month of social joys, friends, entertainment, flirtation (that can build to deep love) optimism and joie de vivre begins Thursday! And four months of great good luck starts Saturday, in love, travel, law, education. You’re on a roll! But settle into chores Friday eve, Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: A long, mellow period draws to a close. You might face – but more likely your close friends, associates face – a pulling apart between key people Monday/Tuesday. (E.g., your friends split up.) This is mostly gradual, deep: but look for clues, and seek early “accommodations,” as this is a decade-long trend. You might have to choose between love and casual friendship. Rest, tend to home matters Wednesday eve to Friday morn. A month of ambition begins Thursday (but first rest, to Friday). Romance, pleasure visit Friday eve, Saturday. Saturday to June 4, “head office” is your friend. Gemini May 21-June 20: Continue to chase facts/secrets, investments and sensual desires to Wednesday noon. You energy’s high Sunday. Buy nothing (nor invest) Monday nor Tuesday before 5 p.m. (PST). Thursday begins a month of gentle love, understanding, legal solutions, far travel, higher education or intellectual pursuits and publishing. Be curious Wednesday to Friday, ask questions. Friday eve and Saturday bring rest, domestic affairs, quietude. But Saturday also starts four months of social expansion, new friends, flirtations, wish fulfilment and happiness! And these four months kick off another 92!


Cancer June 21-July 22: A long month of opportunity and opposition ends Thursday. You probably feel you didn’t accomplish much, as this period began in confusion. But you have Sunday (planning) and Monday to Wednesday (action) to grab some last chance(s). Remember, independence, no; interdependence, yes – for now. Thursday begins a month of secrets, research (detective work) large finances, investments, lifestyle, health and sexual changes and commitments. And Saturday kicks off a period, through early June, of tremendous career and prestige benefits – both trends (change and career luck) combine soon! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Sunday’s happy, optimistic, friendly. But heavy chores still weigh on you through Wednesday. Just plunge in, get ’em done. DON’T start a new work project Monday or before 5 p.m. Tuesday. A month of fresh horizons (and emotional fresh air) arrives Wednesday night. You’ll experience opposition and opportunity – both intense. So be diplomatic yet eager. Saturday begins a four-month phase of great luck in far travel, higher education, publishing, legal affairs, cultural venues and love. You might fall in love and marry – swiftly! Focus on money, spending, earning Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Be ambitious Sunday, or mingle with higher-ups. A month of romance and creativity draws to a close by midweek. Take care with friends, hopes, plans Monday to Tuesday suppertime – pursue all these afterward. Retreat, rest and contemplate your future Wednesday afternoon to Friday morning. Despite your uncertainty about job performance/stability, all looks fine. You begin a month of work and health issues Thursday. More importantly, you enter a four-month phase of great luck in investments, sexual liaisons, life changes and commitments, Saturday. (A clue Wednesday eve.)

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Sunday’s wise, mellow. Your ambition surges Monday to Wednesday, but take care with this Monday. Tuesday has obstacles to overcome (involving home or career foundations) but you can succeed – especially after supper and into Wednesday lunchtime. Thursday brings a month of celebration, optimism, flirtation, entertainment and social joys! Even better, Saturday starts a four-month phase of lucky opportunities, especially in marriage, love and relocation. Enjoy yourself WednesdayFriday, but Friday eve and this weekend, retreat, rest and contemplate: significant times loom! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: A restless, social month is ending. Thursday starts four weeks of quiet contemplation, physical sluggishness and domestic affairs. Sink into these, rest and refresh your soul, as February to June will bring a huge pile of work. Sunday’s mysterious; you might sense someone’s secret. This is a good, stable day to invest, work out a budget, or hold a private conversation. Monday to Wednesday is mellow,but holds barriers and problems before 5 p.m. (PST) Tuesday – and succeeds after that, especially in legal, educational and romantic arenas. Be ambitious Wednesday eve to Friday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: You can find out where you stand with a crucial person Sunday. Financial and sexual obstacles arise Monday to dusk Tuesday; solutions appear after this, through Wednesday mid-day. A mellow, understanding mood steals over you Wednesday eve to Friday – love, intellectual pursuits thrive. Thursday starts a month of travel and communications, errands, emails, details, paperwork. More exciting, Saturday begins four months of great luck in romance, creative projects, far travel, with children and speculative projects. You’ll be offered happiness! Be ambitious Friday eve, Saturday.

Jan. 16 - Jan. 22 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Tackle chores Sunday: pick the ones that will free you for more ambitious projects later. Relationships confront you Monday to Wednesday. These contain some opposition and frustrations through twilight Tuesday, then generate healing, solutions – and love – after that. Chase mysteries Wednesday eve to Friday morning – research, invest, study lifestyle changes, get your health diagnosed. Thursday’s fortunate. This day begins a month of money – buy, sell, seek more lucrative clients. Saturday begins a four-month stretch of great luck in real estate, home, family and security issues. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Romance – of a quiet, stable kind – or kids or creative pleasures – call Sunday. Be careful with chores Monday to Tuesday twilight. The danger: wasted effort. Tasks speed swiftly to conclusions Tuesday night and Wednesday. Thursday ends a month of weariness, solitude and obligations, as it starts four weeks of surging energy, heightened charisma and effective action! Start important projects soon, ask favours, show yourself off! (But first be diplomatic Thursday/Friday, and “sense secrets” Friday/Saturday.) Saturday begins four months of travel, talk and much paperwork. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Spend Sunday at home or in nature – all is restful, steady, quietly inspiring. Take care with romance, creative projects and gambles Monday to Tuesday dusk – these are fine, even lucky, then to Wednesday mid-day. (An 18-month “dead end” in romantic and creative zones ends this March.) Thursday begins a month of obligations, lowered energy and dealings with “head office.” Now to late February, rest, be charitable, contemplate and make plans for the future. Work smart, not hard. Saturday starts a four-month period of money luck – maybe big money luck! All things weave together. • Reading: 416-686-5014

Business owner goes ‘Full Out’ for bikes

Win Win!!

A motorcycle enthusiast has turned his passion for twowheelers into a small business.

by Troy Landreville

A pair of tickets to the Vancouver Motorcycle Show

When Chris Roenitz reached an occupational crossroad, he opted to take a detour. Full Out Cycles and Power Sports ( is the end result of Roenitz, laid off from his truck driving job, deciding to pursue his passion of mechanics, first getting certified at BCIT before opening his own shop at 102 20133 Industrial Avenue. “I’ve worked on motorbikes since I was 14,” Roenitz said. “Then I drove a truck for quite a few years, and it was starting to take a toll on me so I decided if I was going to get laid off again, I was going to do what I really liked doing.” So, after his layoff, Roenitz stayed true to the promise he made to himself by leaving the truck driving business, returning to school, getting certified as a motorcycle mechanic, and then starting his job hunt. “Nobody was hiring so then I decided, well, I’m going to start my own shop then,” he said.

custom builds and bike and power sport repairs with an emphasis on older bikes, ATVs, Harley Davidsons and dirt bikes. During a tour of his shop, Roenitz stopped at a 1980 Honda and explained, “This is an older one a customer had brought in, it hasn’t been running for five years, and it was his dad’s bike who gave it to him, and he wanted to get it running. We got it all together for him.” Full Out Cycles is new to this

year’s Vancouver Motorcycle Show (, which runs Jan. 2023 at the Tradex Exhibiton Centre in Abbotsford. One of the main themes this year is shops and individuals making “everything old new again” with collectors and enthusiasts creating a huge demand for refurbished classics that for many harken back to their first bikes and the heyday of cafe racers, bobbers and classic street bikes.

Entries must be received prior to 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan.18, and winners will be notified by telephone. Note: submitted comments could be used in future editions of the newspaper. No staff or family of the Langley Advance or Postmedia Network Inc. are eligible. This contest is restricted to online participants, 19 years or older only.

In concert with the theme, Full Out is currently in the process of fixing up a 1966 Yamaha, which will be shown at the event. “We definitely like making old new again,” Roenitz said. Roenitz has always had a passion for older bikes and motorcycles in general and has recently started delving into quadding. “I love the air, the freedom of not being in a car,” he said. “I just love riding them.”

The Christmas season was a little warmer and a little brighter for those in need, thanks to Langley Township municipal employees who volunteered their time to gather stuffed socks for the Salvation Army. Suzanne Staryk of Permit, Licence, and Inspection Services, said the tradition was passed on by now-retired Township employee Verle Clark, who worked in the community development department. Clark started the stocking stuffing about a decade ago, “It’s a great tradition and has inspired others to take over and everyone really for her. enjoys taking part “I felt like nobody in it.” stepped forward so I thought I’d do it,” Doreen Searle Staryk explained. Township staff quickly got into the spirit, with departments competing to be more generous than the others. The 200 stockings were actually large socks, purchased by Staryk’s own funds, which were filled with toiletries, scarves, mittens, deodorant, toothpaste, Christmas candy, and other items that might bring cheer to people in need. “It’s a great tradition and everyone really enjoys taking part in it,” said community support clerk Doreen Searle, who assisted in the sock drive. Staryk let Township employees know about the socks through an internal webpage, and invited people to come and fill the socks. Searle said employees also used a coffee fund to purchase gift cards to put into the socks. The socks were then presented to the Salvation Army’s Gateway of Hope by Township employees. “It went great,” said Andrea Voss, community and family services worker for the “Certainly there’s Salvation Army. “It a lot of fantastic allowed us to hand people in the Langley some out while doing the Christmas area who really care hampers. And we also put some aside about others.” for people staying Major James Hagglund in the shelter.” Major James Hagglund, executive director for the Gateway of Hope, said 371 Christmas hampers went out during Christmas, including items from the stuffed socks. Hagglund said they still have some hats and mitts and socks left over for people coming to the shelter. “The need has been slowly increasing and of course the Gateway of Hope has only been open for two years, but I see a slow increase, and as far as people coming alongside to help out, I think there’s a slight increase in that as well,” Hagglund said. “Certainly there’s a lot of fantastic people in the Langley area who really care about others.” Searle said Township employees have worked for other causes, such as collections for Ishtar Transition House for women in Langley. As for Clark, who started the stuffed socks tradition, Staryk said she knows her legacy has been carried on. “Verle’s happy about that and I saw her during Christmas and she gave me a big hug,” Staryk said.
