FREE ESTIMATES

Even those who don’t use the toll bridge get to shell out.

Golden Ears Bridge tolls are yielding less revenue than anticipated, due to light traffic. Drivers are seeking free alternatives to crossing the bridge and paying the toll.

by Kelly Sinoski and Matthew Claxton Postmedia Network Inc.

Taxpayers in Metro Vancouver, including Langley and Ridge Meadows, are expected to be on the hook for another $33 million in costs for the Golden Ears Bridge this year, because fewer drivers than expected are using the region’s first tolled crossing. Revenues from tolls are projected to be about $37.9 million this year, substantially more than the $30 million collected in 2010. However, TransLink’s payments to the bridge builder and operator increase to $71 million in 2011, from $52 million in 2010, and will rise again in 2012. That adds up to a cumulative shortfall, since 2009, of $63.8 million for a bridge that was to pay for itself in 30 years. TransLink spokesman Ken Hardie concedes the projected traffic on the Golden Ears Bridge has levelled off, partly because drivers are seeking “free alternatives” such as the Port Mann Bridge, even though they have to go out of their way to access it.

Ridership estimates going back to 2004 projected daily use of the bridge would be 29,400 vehicles in its first year. However, in the first year they barely reached that level, then stalled. Traffic volumes increased to between 28,000 and 29,000 per month by the fall of 2010, Hardie said. “And then it seemed to plateau,” he said. Hardie said TransLink plans to launch a marketing campaign to get more people using the Golden Ears Bridge. Once the Port Mann is tolled, he said, people will probably realize the Golden Ears crossing is more efficient and convenient.

He wouldn’t say what the marketing plan would entail, but TransLink said last year it was looking at options such as lowering tolls during certain times of the day to get more non-commuters – such as truckers and service providers – using the crossing. “What we want to do is ensure the bridge is fulfilling its function in the transportation system,” Hardie said, adding “We knew our contribution [to the Golden Ears Bridge] would be front-end loaded and we would be subsidizing while the toll revenue caught up.” TransLink’s contract with the builder and operator runs over 30 years, Hardie said. The builder took on the almost $1 billion cost

of building the six-lane bridge, which TransLink is to slowly pay back over three decades. Tolls mean much of that cost will not fall on taxpayers, even if the usage estimates miss their mark somewhat, Hardie said. “There was no provincial or federal money in the bridge,” Hardie said. TransLink documents say the main monthly payment to Golden Crossing will increase from $3 million to $4 million in July 2011. The transportation authority is also on the hook for $166 million – up to $14 million a year – in direct financing costs for property acquisition, toll equipment, project development, and third-party commitments. The Port Mann Bridge, which is being built by the provincial government to connect with its Gateway Project, will accommodate rapid bus service, expanded cycling and pedestrian lanes, and a possible light rail line. The tolls, to be in place for 40 years, will rise with inflation but will be capped at 2.5 per cent annually. Meanwhile, TransLink is still searching for buyers for its two Albion ferries, which were shut down when the Golden Ears Bridge opened in the summer of 2009.

The ice surface inside the Langley Events Centre’s Arena Bowl was temporarily replaced by Basketball BC’s hard court to accommodate the Langley District high school basketball championships. On Thursday afternoon, Brookswood faced Walnut Grove in the Grade 8 girls championship game (above). The district games were a preview of the fast-approaching B.C. Triple A boys high school championships. A total of 32 contests, including the final, will be played in the Arena Bowl during the prestigious March 15-19 tournament, which marks its first year at the LEC.

Plans needed: landowners

Developers and residents want a new neighbourhood plan for south Brookswood. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A Langley developer is spearheading a drive to get new neighbourhood concept plans for a section of South Brookswood. Cameron Gair of Solo Project Management said it’s been more than 20 years since the official community plan for the area was extensively updated. Several times, residents have asked for an upgrade to the plan, but it was usually put off because of a lack of appropriate servicing – water and sewer lines. “Basically the process stalled from there,” Gair said. Now, however, he and landowners in the area see a chance to get a plan underway. Pipes have been installed in

Gair also believes that the Gair spoke to Township Township’s planners will have council Monday on behalf of more time to devote to the a number of residents, and area as much of Willoughby brought a petition from a is finally fully majority of the planned.

Negotiations for a new contract for Langley School District teachers should start March 1. But the “zerozero” message is already being sent to the Langley Teachers’ Association. The zero-zero mandate started with the provincial government’s budget Susan Fonseca on Tuesday. Langley Teachers’ Association “They were clear that there’s a zero-zero mandate for wages,” Langley secretary-treasurer David Green told the school board at its Feb. 15 board meeting. The provincial announcement came as school districts are working through their budgets. Langley must find almost $4 million in cuts for the upcoming school year, and about $3.5 million each year until 2014. The teachers’ union isn’t putting much stock in the wage announcement of a “lame duck” government. “I don’t think anyone is really taking this particular budget seriously,” said LTA president Susan Fonseca. “The finance minister has left a huge contingency fund for whoever is the next Liberal leader to set his/her own financial agenda. Whenever teachers’ contracts expire we are told there is a ‘zero-zero’ mandate, so we’re not surprised if that’s the government’s starting point.” The teachers’ union has told the local school board that it intends to start bargaining March 1, as per its contract, and has given notice that “a range of issues other than salary… need to be dealt with locally,” Fonseca said. Green said that, in addition to the zero-zero mandate, the budget contained news that the annual facilities grant was being reinstated. The province had cut the grant for building maintenance last year – a loss of about $3 million for Langley. Green said he’s not aware of any further significant announcements or changes expected to impact Langley’s education budget.

Trailer theft trial hears testimony

One of a pair of business partners stands accused of stealing from the other. by Simone Blais and Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

The trial of a former Coquitlam mayor accused of stealing an RV saw everything from suggestions of brain damage to questions about business practices this week. John Kingsbury is on trial for theft over $5,000, fraud over $5,000, personation to gain advantage, and causing a person to use a forged document. Kingsbury allegedly walked into Travelhome RV Marketplace in Langley on Aug. 28, 2008 and signed out a trailer belonging to Jean Aussant, a former business partner of Kingsbury in a deal that had broken down. Kingsbury allegedly pretended to be Aussant to get the trailer. On Tuesday, Kingsbury’s lawyer Peter Schmidt dug into the business dealings between the accused and the trailer owner. Kingsbury was in the middle of protracted negotiations to buy half of Aussant’s company, Enviro Surface Care, but had not given Aussant the $450,000 purchase price. Aussant testified that he gave Kingsbury several verbal extensions as the payment failed to materialize, as he trusted Kingsbury. Then in May, 2008, Kingsbury gave Aussant a $24,000 bank draft. Schmidt suggested that Kingsbury told Aussant this was a personal loan, not a down payment or deposit on the company purchase. Under examination by Crown counsel Brian McKinley earlier in the morning, Aussant explained how he came to realize that his trailer had been stolen. He had left it at the Travelhome RV in Langley in August because of some problems with the electrical system and was waiting for parts to arrive. On Aug. 27, 2008 Aussant got a call from Travelhome asking him to bring the trailer back. Aussant was confused. “I told them definitely that the trailer was down there,” he said. He went out to look for it himself. “We went around the yard three times,” Aussant said.

It was a bad day for a Surrey teenager suspected of stealing a jacket from the Langley City Army and Navy outlet on Fewb. 10. Two security guards spotted the young man heading out of the store and tried to stop him, resulting in a fight. Langley RCMP officers arrived to find the three scuffling in the parking lot. As the officers pulled in, the teenager broke free and sprinted away, said Cpl. Holly Marks of the Langley RCMP. The police gave chase, but had to call in the Police Dog Services team to finally track down a suspect. The dog found an 18-year-old Surrey man hiding in bushes in the 5100 block of 206th Street, Marks said. The man was treated for a dog bite at the hospital. His injuries were minor. The suspect is not only facing theft, assault, and flight from a police officer charges, he was wanted on an outstanding warrant. He appeared in court last Friday. NOW, more than ever, it’s important to plan ahead.

Business

Bylaw battle by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Shirley Nielsen said a business she’s run for several years is in danger of being snuffed out due to a dispute with Langley Township. Nielsen’s Willoughby Manor bed and breakfast has offered a few rooms for travellers for several years. She’s also run a catering business and has regularly hosted weddings on her acreage. Matthew Claxton/Langley Advance Now, however, she’s Shirley Nielsen has hosted dozens been told she’s in violation of weddings at her bed and of several Township busibreakfast, but is worried a dispute ness bylaws. over licensing will derail that. Her catering kitchen and wedding business have been completely shut down since last August, Nielsen said, and she now has 92 applications from future brides, which she may not be able to book for this spring and summer. “People should have the right to be married where they want to be married,” Nielsen said. She argues that her wedding business isn’t disruptive to her rather quiet neighbourhood, which hasn’t yet been subdivided into small lots. Her niche is backyard weddings. In the case of a sudden rainstorm, proceedings move into the converted garage on her property. The garage seems to be one of the main issues with Langley Township’s bylaws department. “Please be advised that no assembly use/banquet room is permitted on the property, and should you proceed on using the converted garages of assembly use, the Township will proceed immediately with enforcement action,” said a letter from Bill Storie, the Township’s bylaws manager. Storie said that the bylaws department does not regulate private weddings held in backyards. It only becomes involved where buildings have been converted or built for gatherings. Then permits and licenses are required, such as those held by golf course clubhouses. “We’re in the process of trying to resolve the issue to everyone’s satisfaction,” he told the Langley Advance. Nielsen insists she’s done nothing wrong, and that all the changes to her property were made with permits and, for the food preparation, health inspections. “The wedding industry brings in huge amounts of money to this Township,” she said. About 25 businesses are involved in every wedding she hosts, she estimates. Nielsen said her next recourse may be to try and find a legal loophole – she might lease her lot to brides for three-day contracts. The bylaw department, for its part, has asked Nielsen to make a number of upgrades, get a new inspection, and then apply for a rezoning to accommodate her businesses.

Crash victim tells kids what’s at stake Long spring break

A man who suffered life-threatening burns in a crash warned teens about safe driving.

For teenagers, days are filled with school, friends, family, and a flurry of activities. As graduation approaches, they focus on their future and think about furthering their education, starting a career, traveling, and raising a family of their own in the years to come. But it only takes a split second or one bad decision to change a life and destroy that future. On Feb. 16, the Township of Langley’s Transportation Engineering Department, ICBC, and the Langley RCMP teamed up to teach teenagers at R.E. Mountain Secondary School about the perils of drinking and driving, speeding, and other unsafe behaviors involving vehicles. “I have had the awful experience of having to tell parents that their daughter had been killed in a collision on the night of her graduation,” said Sgt. Gerard Sokolowski of Langley RCMP’s Traffic

John Westhaver lost three friends and almost died himself in a car crash just before his high school graduation. Services. “It was one of the worst things I’ve ever had to do in my life but it pales in comparison to the loss the family was forced to deal with.” R.E. Mountain’s Grade 10, 11, and 12 students gathered at the Langley Events Centre to listen to ICBC Road Safety speaker John Westhaver.

Westhaver talked to the teens about impaired driving, speed, seatbelts, and life choices – things he knows about first hand. A month and a half before graduation, Westhaver and his friends were in a horrific car crash that killed three young men and left him with burns to 75 per cent of his

body. After waking from a coma several weeks later, he faced an incredibly challenging recovery. Finding the strength to move forward, he now shares his story with others and asks them to think about the seemingly simple choices they make behind the wheel and to always weigh possible consequences. “The fact is, if you have been drinking and you get into a car or you chose to speed or drive dangerously, you are putting your future at risk,” said Ineke Schuurman, Transportation Safety Coordinator for the Township of Langley. “You risk hurting or even killing yourself or someone else. Even if you don’t, there are serious consequences that may affect you for years to come.” Crashes are the number one preventable cause of death for youth in BC, said ICBC’s Leanne Cassap, Road Safety Coordinator for Langley. Westhaver is part of the ICBC Road Safety Speaker Tour that educates teens about the power of choice, helps them identify the risks of the road, and equips them with strong decision-making skills.

could save tax dollars

The local school board decides it’s time to look at changing the school calendar to save money. by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Hey kids, how does two weeks off at spring break sound? What about a longer school day or taking a long weekend off when Remembrance Day falls on a Tuesday or Thursday? Different calendar configurations are one of the options the Langley School District is examining in its quest to cut an average of $3.75 million each year over the next four years. During budget discussions at the Feb. 15 school board meeting, trustee Rob MacFarlane received approval from the rest of the board for his idea to have staff examine the implications of a two-week spring break. “I think it’s important this gets a careful look,” he said. Trustee Rod Ross made a friendly amendment that will see staff creating a report to examine various calendar changes. The board asked for both the financial and educational implications of schedule changes. After the meeting, Ross explained that this is not the first time the district has amended its schedule due for financial reasons. Just under a decade ago, the district modified the calendar as a temporary fix. “We did it for a year or two,” he explained. Making breaks longer would mean having to lengthen the school day. Because the district is currently going through budgeting for the coming year, the staff report must be presented soon for the board’s decision. Ross noted that the board would have to vote on any calendar change each year.

PATIO COVERS ON SALE!

Hop on the bus of history The Langley Centennial Museum is inviting people on the Historic Murrayville Bus Tour where they can see old buildings such as a former blacksmith shop. It’s now a school.

by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

A former blacksmith shop built more than a century ago is the first stop on the Historic Murrayvill Bus Tour slated for Feb. 22. Today the building on Old Yale Road is Langley Montessori School and helps forge young people. “It was built at the close of the 20th century,” explained tour guide Fred Pepin. Pepin, a local history expert, organizes the tours with the Langley Centennial Museum, and picked Murrayville for this year’s event because it is still home to so much of Langley’s past. “Murrayville has the most intact heritage buildings,” he said of Langley. He sees the tours as more than a pleasant way to spend a few hours. They are a tool to preserve the past. “The bus tour is to give people an idea of heritage buildings, how they can be adapted for reuse, and to educate them a little about our community,” he said. That education helps people appreciate and want to protect heritage resources. “I like to show people the benefits of preserving these buildings,” Pepin said. Other stops include many sites at or near Five Corners including Sharon United Church, what used to be Matthew’s Cash

Important Notice to Employers Grocery, the old pumphouse which as been refurbished, Hagerty House, which was built around 1910, now has a financial business. People can also see the Murrayville Hall, which underwent a restoration, an Orthodox church and two heritage homes near Murrayville School. Pepin has also planned a stop at the Traveller’s Hotel, which today is known as the Princess and the Pea Bed and Breakfast. It is thought to be the oldest commercial building in the Township and was a place to stop overnight for those travelling Old Yale Road (back before paving and when horsepower really mean the fourlegged variety). The tours, for people 16 and older, cost $35 per person and include lunch at Porter’s General Store, which is also one of the historic sites of the neighbourhood. People are asked to meet at the Langley Centennial Museum in Fort Langley

where the tour begins and ends. It runs 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. The bus can hold up to 16 participants and people book by contacting the Langley Centennial Museum at 604-532-3536. While the bus is very comfortable, people will have a chance to get off it and tour several of the buildings on the tour. Pepin said the tours have been going on for about a decade and about three quarters of the people attending are local residents interested in learning more about their community. The others are tourists with a love of history. The tour is one of the local events to mark Heritage Week, Feb. 21-27. On Feb. 26, the museum is hosting a Heritage Tea with a speech by local historian Warren Sommer entitled Langley’s Lost and and Threatened Heritage. The cost is $5 and the tea is at the museum in Fort Langley. It runs 2-4 p.m.

Numbers stuck The Golden Ears Bridge is not meeting expectations. That’s probably not much of a surprise to those who use the crossing, often finding themselves all alone above the Fraser River. It’s also probably no surprise to those who avoid the tolls by taking a longer route around. They are, after all, the ones who are causing the un-met expectations. Ridership estimates from 2004 set firstyear traffic over the bridge at nearly 30,000 vehicles per day between Maple Ridge and Langley. And indeed, by fall of 2009, traffic came close to within a thousand trips from that mark. But that’s been about it. The numbers stalled there. While that may be good news for those who find the drive between the North and South Fraser communities free of traffic competition much of the time, it’s not great news for those who have to pay the bills – the bills beyond the toll charges, that is. The bridge builders put almost $1 billion into the project, with the expectation that they would be repaid over the next 30 years. TransLink contracted to pay the builders, with the expectation that toll charges would take care of the mortgage, so to speak. TransLink officials rightly point out that the world has changed since they decided to build the bridge. The global financial upheaval continues to take a toll on the economy, and it appears commuters aren’t as eager to pay bridge tolls as expected. TransLink is also probably correct in suggesting that, as the economy resurfaces, bridge use will rise, resulting in more toll money and less burden on taxpayers who currently make up the difference in bridge payments. Suggestions that tolling of the Port Mann Bridge in future will increase the fortunes of the Golden Ears Bridge are a bit disturbing, however. It seems somehow wrong to drive more traffic our way only by increasing their costs. TransLink doesn’t seem to understand “carrots and sticks” – only sticks – which may be okay for the proverbial mule, but people deserve better. – B.G.

Animal welfare

Speak up for those who can’t

Dear Editor, Yet another animal has been left to die, and this one only one or two days old. What have we become as a society when we have such little regard to those who have no voice? Callous disregard for animals is a sad reflection on our values and principles as a human race. We often see stories in the paper and on television newscasts that show how animals of different species come together to provide each other with love and caring, but we two-legged

animals treat them – and even our own – shamefully. It is clear to me that the human race could learn some very valuable lessons by watching the animal kingdom, but somehow I doubt that will ever happen. I know why the governments don’t set up funds for the protection of animals. Animals don’t pay taxes and they don’t vote, so they don’t count and have no value to the politicians. But we, as a society, must insist on changes to the legal system to ensure that those without a voice get one.

Politics

New option available

Dear Editor, Gord Weitzel [B.C. politics entertain, Feb. 15 Letters, Langley Advance] is looking for an alternative in B.C. politics. He need look no further. The BC First Party is a new and intelligent party formed by Chris Delany and is already offering a democratic alternative to the same-old litany of woe to which we have been subjected for so many years. Eileen Spencer, Surrey

It would be nice if we had some of the judges from Quebec here – they have no problem with handing out stiff sentences to criminals. The legal system takes it’s cues from the government, and even though the SPCA might want to have the criminals prosecuted, there is very little interest for the Crown to do anything. We must insist that our politicians start listening to us if they want our votes. Perhaps we should insist on being able to elect our judges, rather than having them appointed by the political party of the day. We should not have to resort to the same tactics as the citizens of Egypt to ensure changes are made, but we definitely need to stand up and be counted. The best way is to send emails or letters to your provincial and federal representatives, and demand the laws be changed to prosecute those who harm the defenseless. Al Crawford, Langley

Technology

TODAY’S FLYERS... in the

There are still other options with incandescent lamps. One is the “Krypton” lamp. It comes in both candelabra (mini) and medium (regular socket) base. The light is similar in appearance but at half the cost. Halogen lamps are another option, both in recessed lighting as well as regular fixtures. Color rendition is excellent if you’re concerned about not affecting the colour palette in an area of the home. LED technology is changing on a daily basis. Many manufacturers are getting new chip technology regularly. The chip is the diode

that produces the light, similar to chips on circuitry boards in electronics. The new chips increase lumens per watt: the amount of light produced uses less wattage, or power. LEDs are still cost-prohibitive for many consumers. However, one should take into consideration that those lamps will last a lifetime for most people. By using LEDs, the consumer is being environmentally green, not only by using less power, but also by producing less waste. I hope this sheds some “light” on the issue. Bill Dehaas, Cloverdale

Healthcare

Patients need new plan

Dear Editor, Medical Services Plan requires that specialists obtain referrals from a patient’s family physician in order to treat the said patient. That impacts the patient, and abuses the health-care budget. I have a family doctor in Abbotsford, and I see an eye specialist in Langley. I have had glaucoma in my left eye since the early 1980s, which has required surgery and an ongoing prescription for eye drops. Since the prescription can only be made for one year, I must see the eye specialist to have it renewed. In order to do that, I first have to see my family doctor to get the referral, even though the condition I have is ongoing and requires ongoing treatment, which my family doctor cannot give me. continued on page A47… For more letters to the editor visit... www.langleyadvance.com

Dear Editor, The public should be made more aware of the steps being taken by governments to ban certain lamps. As of now, both 75-watt and 100-watt A19s (your regular household light bulbs which have been around for years) are only being sold as quantities last from stock manufactured last year. January 2012 will see the ban of the 60-watt version. CFL’s and LED are two of a number of different options which are available: your writer [New light bulbs have steep price, Feb. 8 Letters, Langley Advance] quotes $8 each for CFLs. They can be had for far less, so I’m not sure where she is getting her information on costs. The issue of mercury has been around for years; homeowners have had fluorescent tubes in garages, under-cabinet lighting, and other areas in the home. The important thing is to recycle CFLs and tubes, which they can do by dropping off at any locations which recycle, including some stores that sell them. If a home has 20 lamps to replace with CFLs the total cost could be $64.60 plus HST, not necessarily the $200 quoted. The homeowner will see a payback over time (lower energy consumption resulting in lower Hydro bills) by utilizing CFLs throughout the home.

Crime changes and policing changes, and so CrimeStoppers is changing, too. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A staggering array of calls has come in to CrimeStoppers over the past several decades, RCMP Cpl. Jack Stetz said Tuesday. Stetz was the speaker at this month’s Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce dinner, and talked to the local businesses owners about the past and present of the non-profit group. It was well known in the 1980s and 1990s in B.C. for running its re-enactments of cold case criminal files on TV. However, it is collecting tips from the public that remains its major endeavour. In 2010, 26,890 calls were placed to CrimeStoppers in B.C., leading to 6,035 tips for investigators to follow up. Tips range from information about murder and major drug deals, to illegal garbage dumping. About 10 per cent of all calls are nuisance tips or rants, Stetz said, but the remainder are followed up on and many have resulted in investigations, drug seizures, stolen property recovery, arrests, and convictions. Stetz explained the odd reward system that CrimeStoppers operates to ensure the anonymity of its callers. Every caller is given a number, he said. If the tip pans out, a reward will be given, ranging up to $2,000 for murder. The caller will check back with CrimeStoppers and arrange a meeting with someone from the non-profit, and cash will be handed over. “In the old days, we would see a spike in tips right around rent time,” Stetz said. He noted that criminals certainly use the service to inform on other criminals. But the primary users of the service seem to be ordinary citizens. “Tips are up, rewards are down,” Stetz said. “People are doing it out of the goodness of their heart.”

Chamber ofCelebrating Commerce Week the value that chambers provide to their communities. February 21st - 25th

Community Action Leaders

Welcome to the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce

The Chamber of Commerce has been the “Voice of Business” in the City and Township of Langley since 1931. During that time the Chamber has seen many great changes in the community and is proud to have been a part of many of these. In January 2001, the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce formed with the completion of the successful merger of the former Aldergrove, Langley and North Langley Chambers of Commerce. This new Chamber is one of the largest and most active in the province of British Columbia. There has never been a time in the history of Langley that trade and commerce has not been in the minds of those who live and work here. As the “Birthplace of British Columbia”, Fort Langley flourished as a result of trade and business continues to grow and diversify the economic profile of what is now Langley.

The Township of Langley is recognized as the “Horse Capital of BC” and this multi-million dollar industry is one that continues to grow and is creating a niche for itself both internationally and close to home. The farming that takes place in Langley is wide reaching. From domestic farming of crops and raising animals, to more experimental and developmental operations, Langley’s agricultural based industries are keeping pace with the rest of the economy in local, national and international markets. The backbone of the economy continues to be small business. Langley has a very diverse, strong and pro-active business community. Many local businesses of this scale have established reputations throughout the province, as well as North America for quality product and services. It is this diverse, growing business community that has built a reputation of pride and quality product that has become synonymous with Langley. The Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce is proud of its association with each of these fine businesses and welcomes new endeavours to our community. Many people already know that the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce is the voice of business in Langley. But it is also a reference source for people who want to set up a company, move to, or visit the area.

Taxes should be based on what residents can afford, not what politicians think they should help themselves to, according to one irate taxpayer. Kevin Granger-Brown lives in Langley Township and owns commercial land in Langley City, so he’s facing tax increases in both communities. He’s leading the charge

with a disgruntled taxpayer association. He said municipal spending is out of control. The association contends that municipalities, like individuals, should only receive a cost of living increase, at most. “The current way of budgeting, where they decide how much to spend first, does not force the elected officials to be frugal, and allows them to adjust the mill rate and collect what they say they need, and not what we can afford,” he said. Granger-Brown noted that the two municipalities have handed taxpayers increase after increase.

The City is looking at a 3.77 per cent increase for single family residential taxpayers but more than six per cent for light industrial properties. In the Township, the suggested tax increase is 3.95 per cent, despite several cuts being planned. “Taxpayers should be very concerned with this trend, as in these times of ever increasing costs, and with taxpayers having to take on more and more personnel debt just to make ends meet, we need to understand, that when politicians let spending get out of control, sooner or later, the poor taxpayer will have to pay, and pay we do,” he said. He was one of about 19 people who attended the City budget open house Feb. 9 where he and other members of the public challenged the proposed spending for the coming year. “They also invited us to show them how to manage the budget. If only we had the time to do their job for them, maybe we could, but that’s their job,” he said. There has not been a significant expansion in the City tax base for several years and yet the municipality took in $24 million in 2004. By 2009, it has risen to $35 million. Granger-Brown noted that’s a 45 per cent increase. The 2011 budget would be about $38 million. He suggests that there no longer needs to be two Langleys. “Though it may have been necessary to have a duplication of services in Langley in the past, is it really necessary to have two municipalities in Langley, an issue which in my opinion, needs revisiting, especially with spiraling costs and property taxes,” Granger-Brown noted. He’s inviting Langley residents with concerns about increasing taxation to join the association. Anyone wanting more information can email kevin.gbrown@gmail.com.

Scribe makes leap from business to spirituality A Langley author launches a book about “the divine feminine.”

t was during a difficult time that a local author had an epiphany that led to a new path in her a life and a new book. Karen McGregor, a 42-year-old Brookswood resident, is the author of the 2007 book Sculpting the Business Body, a compilation of strategies and stories from 37 top entrepreneurs. That book garnered her a 2007 nomination for Langley’s Women of Excellence Awards. McGregor has long been a public speaker in business communications and relationships. Her new book The Madonna Code: Mysteries of the Divine Feminine Unveiled, however, is in a completely different field. She said people often ask her how she went from writing about business to writing about spirituality. She realized her true calling when she had a vision and a heart-opening experience of love during a difficult period in her life. Over the course of six weeks in 2008, her son broke his leg and she separated from both her husband and business partners. “Sometimes in our lives it is the most difficult challenges we go through that allow our gifts and a sense of purpose to come out,” she said. During the past year she has been operating what she calls an event company, Divine You, focusing on personal and spiritual development. She holds monthly events, teleseminars, and writing groups – one in White Rock, the other in Vancouver. “That was really the time when I thought this is my path and I would really love to be able to help people to open their hearts,” she said. The personal conflict in her life helped her realize that some of the deepest and most important things were buried in her heart and only through “divine chaos” was it revealed to her. The book discusses the four hearts of the Madonna: Virgin, Mother, Goddess and

Karen McGregor spoke about writing her latest book, The Madonna Code: Mysteries of the Divine Feminine Unveiled, during the book launch in Vancouver recently. Queen. These are four parts of what she calls “the divine feminine.” The Virgin Heart, for example, refers to a state of openness where a person doesn’t judge others or make assumptions based on past experiences. McGregor met James Twyman, author of the Moses Code, two years ago at an event where he was speaking about his book. They discussed the Da Vinci Code (2003 by Dan Brown) and the God Code (2004 by Gregg Braden), and she decided that the books had a male slant. “What I found with the divine feminine is that there is no one code. There is no one answer... We expect in our patriarchal society to have one

answer.” McGregor’s image appears on the cover because, as she explained to the audience, she encourages every person to “become their own Madonna.” So, has she left the business world behind? On the contrary, McGregor said, she still wants to help people in businesses work on “open-hearted wisdom.” “I discovered that this is my passion and what I would like is to meld the two and show people that we can transform businesses to work more from the heart and the intuitive wisdom,” she said. Open-hearted wisdom starts with the individual, she said, before it moves to the family, the community and ultimately the nation. “I see the world changing by accepting and loving all parts of us. McGregor also works with the Canadian Mental Health Association to talk to people about the spiritual aspects of “heart wisdom.”

angley Community Music School is offering up a Sunday afternoon concert, a time slot it hopes will work for people who can’t attend concerts during the workweek. As part of the Cafe Classico series, the school is hosting the Pacific Rim String Quartet on Sunday, Feb. 27, starting at 3 p.m. “Without a doubt, one of the greatest composers of the string quartet genre was Beethoven,” said Elizabeth Bergmann, the school’s artistic director. “He wrote 16 masterworks in total, each of them exemplary of the breadth and span of his musical style.” The quartet, the LCMS ensemble in residence, will perform Beethoven’s string quartet No. 6 Op. 18, No. 3 Op. 59 and Op. 95. Bergman is hosting the pre-concert coffee and commentary session with the music performance slated for 4 p.m. in the Rose Gellert Hall. “The Pacific Rim String Quartet will play three quartets from two of his compositional periods,” she said. “The audience will hear the classical form and structure combined with passion and romanticism.” The PRSQ was formed in September 2007 by four of Vancouver’s top string players. The name was chosen to reflect both the geography of Vancouver and the membership of the group – two of the players are originally from Taiwan, while the other two are from western Canada. The PRSQ has quickly established itself in Vancouver through its own concert series at Pacific Theatre and in performances around the Lower Mainland. Members of the PRSQ have performed throughout Canada, the US, Europe and Taiwan. Tickets – $15 adults, $13 seniors, and $10 students – are available from the box office, 604-534-2848. The school is at 4899 207th St.

ANIMAL HEALTH

Information for and about your four-legged friends.

STARTS ON THE FARM

As partners in biosecurity, farm visitors are an important part of keeping Canada’s animals healthy. Animal diseases are easily transferred by people, equipment, and vehicles—making biosecurity a team effort between agricultural producers and service personnel. Here are some helpful suggestions to share with farm visitors:

SHARE YOUR BIOSECURITY PLAN.

Stress how important it is to understand, respect and enforce these risk-reducing practices.

ASK VISITORS TO PLAN AHEAD.

Explain that contacting producers before arriving ensures visits are appropriately scheduled.

PROMOTE AWARENESS.

Explain the importance of avoiding contact with animals, housing areas, and feed and water, when possible. Ask them to work from clean areas towards dirty ones.

ASK VISITORS TO MAKE A COMMITMENT TO BIOSECURITY.

Reba Hooper (above) and Squirt Colpitts (below) are extending an invitation to all their four-footed, six- or eight-legged, finned, feathered, and scaled friends – any pets at all – to have their people send in their photos to news@langleyadvance.com.

Before visiting, they should ask themselves: • Is this visit necessary? • Where do I park and sign in? • Do I have everything I need to perform my service? • Do I know how to enter production zones? • Am I following effective cleaning measures for equipment and personal wear?

Photography

Send in favourite pet pictures

Biosecurity is the best investment we can make to help keep Canada’s animals healthy.

Do you have a dog or a cat (or goldfish or turtle, for that matter) with “star quality”? Or maybe you’d just like to give your adoring friend some public recognition. The Langley Advance would like to give you and your pets an opportunity to say hello to the community. Send a picture of your faithful companion and a paragraph about why they are so special to news@langleyadvance. com. We’ll publish some in print, and others can join us in our online edition at www.langleyadvance.com.

Questions & Answers

Sandy Noble AMP

Worms not likely problem

Mortgage Consultant MBABC & CAAMP Member

604-825-0081 www.sandynoble.com

Dear Anne,

In the Garden by Anne Marrison

I wonder how thickly you applied the sand. Grass needs drainage, but it also needs nutrition. It would be useful to get your lawn aerated this spring to improve the drainage. Wielding a fork will likely not be too effective. You may need to get a machine in. Aeration is hard work. Afterwards, give the lawn a good raking so that a portion of the sand layer you applied goes into the holes. Then scatter some Dolomite lime over the lawn, and two or three weeks later fertilize the lawn by spreading weedfree compost or a slow-release organic fertilizer. The compost would be your best option, since if the aeration/lime/nutrition doesn’t perk up your grass, you may have to look at re-seeding your lawn – at least in the bare spots. Birds like to eat all worms, and attracting them to your yard with container ponds, birdhouses, or berrying shrubs might help. Leaving grass clippings on the lawn is an excellent practice, because grass clippings are a good fertilizer for grass, and they become a mulch which reduces the need for watering. If you mow frequently and raise your mower’s height so that only the top third of the grass is cut, the clippings will not be unsightly and the grass will be healthier. The clippings and the high-cutting will lessen the nuisance effect of the castings, both visually and underfoot.

Jean Downing, Ladner he size of the worm castings suggests that you may have dew worms (night crawlers) in your lawn. You might check it out by going out at night with a flashlight. Dew worms are much larger than other earthworms. Most kinds of earthworms come to the surface of the soil at night and after rain, to feed on leaves and other organic materials. They all love rich, moist soil, which is why grass clippings attract such huge numbers of worms. Worms of all kinds are hugely difficult to get rid of – and earthworms are so beneficial that getting rid of them isn’t a good idea anyway. But if your lawn was in really good shape with lush, thick grass that’s not cut too short, the castings would not be as visible. They might not bother you as much, and eventually would increase the health and aeration of your soil. It’s interesting that grass on the north side of your shed was sparse after only two months. Perhaps it’s very shady on that side. Most grass (even “shade mix”) needs some sun. Also, if you installed the sod in July or August, frequent watering would have been essential to get the grass to root properly into the soil below. A scattering of Dolomite lime in fall, followed later by slow-release organic fertilizer, would also have helped.

“I built a new home and moved in last July. The sod was laid and looked great at first. “Two months later, the grass was sparse and mostly dirt on the north side of the backyard shed. I put down two applications of fine sand, but the grass is still very sparse. “My biggest problem is hundreds of worm-castings the size of golf balls. I dispose of them but they reappear. The mower wheels run through this muck and it looks like my backyard is covered in grease.”

Rice nice, quinoa better

T

hanks to “protein” and “low carb” diets, awareness of carbohydrates is prevalent. But starches are coming back to our dinner tables. Besides pasta and potatoes, rice is a favourite – and there are many varieties available. And they’re really not all bad… but let’s compare them to quinoa. Any dietician will likely by Chef Dez tell you our diets should Chef Dez is a food columnist and culinary include a balanced combinainstructor in the Fraser Valley. tion of almost all foods… Visit him at www.chefdez.com. but moderation is the key. Send questions to dez@chefdez.com or to P.O. Box 2674, Abbotsford, B.C. Inquiring further, you will V2T 6R4 find there is a preference for brown grains versus white. White rice is less nutritious because milling strips the grain of bran. Normally, nature-made ingredients are more nutritious the closer they are to their original, natural state. Brown rice has about the same calories and carbohydrates as white rice, but has just the outer husk removed from the rice grain, whereas white rice has the husk and bran removed. However, it takes twice as long to cook and it spoils faster in the dry form, as it still contains the essential oils of the rice germ. White rice comes as long and short grain, Basmati, Jasmine, etc. I normally choose Basmati for my busy lifestyle. It cooks the fastest: once the water comes to a boil, cover and simmer for 10-12 minutes and serve. It is very fragrant, and the delicate grains complement many rice recipes. Short grain rice is popular for sushi. It’s mixed with a brine to aid its binding qualities, needed for shaping, and to give it distinct sushi rice flavour. For my sushi rice, I dissolve one tablespoon of salt and a quarter cup of sugar into one third of a cup of rice vinegar, over medium heat. That seasons about three cups dry short-grain rice, cooked. Wild Rice is a grain that is actually classified as a “grass.” When compared to cooked brown and white rice, it offers lower calories, lower carbohydrates, and higher protein. Wild rice is more coarse when served on its own, and therefore is great mixed with other rices. Quinoa (pronounced “keen-wah”), also known as Inca rice, is really a seed, not a grain. It comes from broad-leaf plants native to the Inca people of South America. It has a somewhat similar appearance to couscous-shaped pasta. Quinoa is superior to other grains because it is a complete protein, containing a balanced set of essential amino acids. It offers similar protein and carbohydrate levels as wild rice, a similar calorie count as white or brown rice, but has a higher natural fat content and a nutty flavour. Quinoa can be cooked similarly to rice, or without a lid, for more texture. We sauté the dry grains in olive oil and garlic before adding liquid, and then we stir occasionally, without a lid, until all the liquid is absorbed and evaporated. If you are tired of rice, it makes a great alternative.

A little learning goes a long way to improve life Free information seminars cover issues important to seniors. by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

ust because people tend to slow down with age doesn’t mean there’s nothing that can be done about it. What seniors can do to improve their mobility was the topic of the latest seminar at Langley Lodge. The seniors facility has been putting on information seminars since September and has different experts offer people information they can use. The Feb. 15 session featured mobility issues. “Rarely do we consider rehabilitation for the elderly population; we just assume that there is decline and the elderly have to adjust to that,” explained lodge executive director Debra Hauptman. “Keeping joints and muscles healthy and active throughout life is important, for the same reasons for the younger population as for the older population.” She said physiotherapy can help seniors stay mobile because it helps them retain their strength. “With improved strength and mobility, all

Dayna Driscoll, the Langley Lodge manager of social work services, and rehabilitation services manager Delicia Jackson presented the information seminar Feb. 15. of us can enjoy greater independence and freedom to engage in activities of daily living,” Hauptman said. Age shouldn’t be a deterrent to staying active and mobile and physiotherapy or rehabilitation for seniors can not only allow them to participate in activities but also helps them maintain independence, and reduces injuries due to falls, she noted.

These informative seminars being hosted by Langley Lodge are free. “We are a not-for-profit health care organization and we care about seniors’ health in Langley,” she said. Organizers ask that those planning to attend to RSVP, so they know how many to expect. Topics are already known for the spring events.

“We have a speaker from Fraser Health on March 15 on advanced care decisions,” Hauptman explained. Advanced care decisions are ways for people to spell out their wishes when it comes not only to things such as funerals but also what kinds of care they want should they become incapacitated and can’t speak or make decisions, where they would want to be cared for and other significant life decisions. It provides clear direction for not only family members, who are involved in the conversations when creating the plans, but also health professionals. The seminar will be taught by Cari Hoffman, the Fraser Health advance care planning coordinator. In April, the topic will be long-term care. It is “for anyone who would like to know more about it but do not have any information or know where to start,” Hauptman said. The free seminars are about 90 minutes and provide an opportunity for questions. They are open to anyone, not just seniors. Although they are about topics important to seniors, the seminars would benefit their family and friends, who are welcome to attend. RSVP to the seminars at ddriscoll@langleylodge.org or call 604-532-4241.

SAFER makes rent more affordable for B.C. seniors Make your rent more affordable The Province of British Columbia provides SAFER subsidies to more than 15,000 senior households renting apartments in the private market across BC.

ARE YOU ELIGIBLE? You may be eligible for SAFER if you meet all of the following conditions:

- You are 60 or older. - You have lived in British Columbia for the full 12 months immediately preceding your application.

- You and your spouse (with whom you are living) meet one of the following citizenship requirements: Canadian citizen(s); or authorized to take up permanent residence in Canada; or Convention refugee(s).

- You pay more than 30 per cent of your gross (before tax) monthly

household income towards the rent for your home, including the cost of pad rental for a manufactured home (trailer) that you own and occupy.

If you are eligible, SAFER may subsidize part of the rent that is over 30 per cent of your income. To find out more about SAFER, including application forms, visit www.bchousing.org or call 604-433-2218 from Metro Vancouver or 1-800-257-7756 from elsewhere in B.C.

When the company Bonita was working for in 2007 had to downsize, e_b e_bT `UWZbVRWS]c Sa[db \SR^bR was given a lay-off notice. Thankfully, she had a few cushions to help tide her over: severance pay; employment assistance; and her RRSPs. She had also recently started to receive a monthly rent subsidy through Shelter Aid For Elderly Renters (SAFER). The provincial government program helps make rents affordable for B.C. seniors with low to moderate incomes. SAFER provides monthly cash payments for eligible seniors age 60 or over who pay rent for their homes. Because SAFER subsidies are calculated to give the most assistance to people with the least income, Bonita saw her subsidy increase when her other sources of income decreased. “For three years I had CPP, plus some money from dog and house sitting and acting as an extra in the movies while I looked for part-time work,” she said. “The SAFER subsidy made my rent more affordable and meant I didn’t have to move from my apartment.” Bonita is now employed at Walmart where she began as a greeter and is currently a cashier. BC Housing provides SAFER subsidies to more than 15,000 senior households renting apartments in the private market, including singles, couples and people sharing a unit.

Hugs for everyone

S

he can’t be found in the Guinness Book of World Records but Langley’s Toots Tucker has a unique distinction. Langley’s ubervolunteer started a hug club, a natural extension of her ebullient personality, and has collected millions of hugs. “My friends and Langley are my family,” Tucker said. “I tend to adopt everyone I meet.” Tourism Langley honoured Tucker during its annual general meeting with the Lifetime Volunteer award. The local tourism marketing organization presented its second Tourism Excellence Awards Feb. 4. “We couldn’t think of a more passionate and dedicated community member to honor this year,” commented Deborah Kulchiski, Tourism Langley’s executive director. “She is an example of the reasons why visitors’ experience in Langley is a positive and memorable one, and one of the reasons why they return to visit our communities.” “I am humbly honoured,” Tucker told the Langley Advance. She’s 78 but jokes “I tell my closest friends that I’m still growing up.” Like many people, she got her life-long nickname courtesy of siblings and almost no one called her Gertrude, her given name. “[It] is a name which I have worn since my diaper days,” she said. Tucker moved to Langley as a young bride in 1953, having lived around Cloverdale and Abbotsford. The Tuckers lived in Brookswood. “Rent in l953 was a modest $25 or $35 a month to rent an older house – usually no plumbing, and you cook with a wood-burning stove, and of course, the bathroom is an outside little building,” she joked. Like most people, she’s had her share of hardships. Her husband, Lloyd, who had always been active and outdoorsy, suffered a heart attack in 1984 and she took care of him for 20 years, until his passing six years ago. “When I was left alone, I felt totally lost,” she explained. So Tucker started looking around her community again, joining clubs and helping “everywhere I could.” And she looks forward to continuing her activities for the foreseeable future. “If the week could expand into eight days, I would be doing even more – there is such an opportunity in Langley where everyone and anyone can be of service in giving assistance, that ‘being bored’ is absolutely not necessary in anyone’s lifestyle, according to me,” she quipped. But she’d like to do even more, whether it’s checking out community policing, walking dogs at a shelter, help at a seniors centre, or doing more at the local hospital. “Hopefully, my health and mind will support my body to be able to continue to volunteer – and I shall be one of the luckiest little old ladies in Langley,” she said. In addition to Tucker’s award, the 2010 BC Summer Games received the Event of the Year award. That award recognizes a cultural, sports or general interest event that has attracted more visitors to the community. “It is an honour to recognize those devoted group of volunteers for their support and enthusiasm. They deserve our gratitude for their unselfish contributions to this memorable event”, said Township Councillor Bev Dornan.

Senior A lacrosse

Longtime player joins Thunder coaching ranks Darcy Rhodes has experience as a leader. A man very familiar to Langley Thunder fans and players will be patrolling behind the Western Lacrosse Association team’s bench this season. The Thunder has named Darcy Rhodes as their offence and strength/conditioning coach. Rhodes is an well-known lacrosse figure. He played 12 seasons with the Thunder (in North Shore, Okanagan, and Langley) after an illustrious junior A career with the Port Coquitlam Saints. He joins head coach Rod Jensen and defence coaches Shaun Springett and Fred Klomp on the Thunder staff. It’s a reunion of sorts: Rhodes’ first coaches in the WLA were Jensen and Fred Klomp. His last coach in the WLA was Springett.

Rhodes’ lacrosse abilities and leadership saw him become the captain of both the Thunder and the Saints. “His leadership helped the Thunder through some difficult times,” Thunder general manager Gerry Van Beek said. “His experience is now utilized to better the Thunder team. Darcy Rhodes epitomizes what the Thunder family is about. He selflessly does what is necessary to make this team succeed. His degree in coaching makes him a natural coach. The Thunder a very lucky that he decided to stay with the organization he’s help build.” Rhodes is the technical director of the BC Lacrosse Association. He directs all coaching clinics, official clinics, Team BC programs, and regional coaches. His junior A stats are impressive: 308 games, 183 goals, 296 assists, and 479 points. The Thunder start play in May at the Langley Events Centre on their home lacrosse turf. Tickets are available at www.thunderlax.com.

Skater Shmyr speeds Chiefs’ season finale tonight to Canada Games gold Junior A hockey

by Troy Landreville sports@langleyadvance.com

Who the Langley Chiefs face in the opening round of the British Columbia Hockey League playoffs hinges entirely on how the final weekend of the regular season play out. If the Chiefs beat the Salmon Arm Silverbacks in their regular season finale tonight (Friday) at the Langley Events Centre, they’ll clinch third in the BCHL Coastal Conference.

With third spot comes a date with the sixth-place Alberni Valley Bulldogs in a best-of-seven, opening round series. The Victoria Grizzlies are a point back of the Chiefs. Each team has one game to play in its season. So, if the Chiefs lose to Salmon Arm and the Grizzlies beat the Nanaimo Clippers on Saturday, Victoria will leapfrog over the Chiefs in the final standings, setting up a Grizzlies/Bulldogs series.

In this scenario, the Chiefs will slide into fourth place, and will open the playoffs against Nanaimo. Whoever the Langley juniors – with a record of 30-21-1-7 as of today – go up against in the first round, you can catch their playoff opener next Friday, Feb. 25, at the events centre. ••• Tonight’s Chiefs/ Silverbacks game faces off at 7 p.m. at the LEC.

The Langley skater added a gold medal to go with the bronze she won the day before.

(below the college and university levels) and a number of senior team PBL players are drafted by Major League Baseball teams every year. The former Jays will be playing approximately 90 games between March and August. In an interesting twist, they will also be playing on different PBL junior teams and will be competing against each other this coming season. Kano McGregor is with the Abbotsford Cardinals, McMann will be playing for the White Rock Tritons and Younker is heading to Whalley to play for the Fraser Valley Chiefs.

University basketball

Spartans bull over Bisons to cap fine season A road win over Manitoba Saturday gives the TWU men a 21-3 record to finish the regular campaign.

The Trinity Western University men’s basketball team once again dominated the early going to earn a 103-76 victory over the University of Manitoba Bisons Saturday at the Investors Group Athletic Centre in Winnipeg. “Our first quarter solidified the game for us,” Spartans head coach Scott Allen said. “But it was great to have balanced scoring and getting everyone playing time is great for us as we head into the playoffs, so that they can contribute when we need them to.” The Spartans followed up the previous night’s 101-68 victory by jumping out to a 38-9 lead at the end of the first quarter. The Bisons managed to cut the margin to nine points, 73-64, with 1:26 remaining in the third quarter. From there, it was once again all TWU as the Spartans book-ended their first quarter with a 25-12

fourth stanza to claim the 27-point win. Trinity Western, which came into the game ranked fourth in the country, moved to 21-3 in its final game of the season. ••• The men practically ended their game with Manitoba before it started, using a 50-18 first half lead to cruise to a 101-68 victory over the Bisons last Friday in Winnipeg. In a total team effort, where every player made the box score in a positive manner and played at least nine minutes, the Spartans were led by five players who hit double digits in scoring: Jacob Doerksen with 15 points and 10 rebounds, Calvin Westbrook with 17 points and five rebounds, Daniel Horner with 15 points, Kyle Coston with 13 points and six rebounds, and Tristan Smith with 12 points, four assists, and three steals. TWU women’s basketball Trinity Western fifth year forward Corina Reimer finished off her stellar career with a near record night as she pulled down 19 rebounds to go with 11 points and one blocked shot, as

the Spartans closed out their season with a hardfought 60-54 loss to the University of Manitoba Bisons Saturday at the Investors Group Athletic Centre in Winnipeg. “It was a tough, tough loss tonight,” Spartans head coach Cheryl JeanPaul said. “We had some highlights and some missed opportunities again.” The loss drops TWU to 3-21 to finish the season.

Reimer’s 19 rebounds are one shy of her personal best and school record 20 rebounds, which she set in Oct. 12, 2007, in a 66-58 loss to St. F.X. The fifth year Abbotsford native finishes her TWU career as the Spartan record-holder in: • Career rebounds with 628; • Defensive rebounds with 379; • Offensive rebounds with 249;

• Blocked shots with 66; and • Game records of 20 rebounds and five blocked shots. “Corina had a solid weekend and a great night to finish her career at TWU,” Jean-Paul said. “She was huge on the boards and it was really exciting to see her finish well.” ••• A solid game wasn’t quite enough for the

Spartans, as the Bisons pulled out a come-frombehind, 66-61 victory Friday in Winnipeg. The loss ended the women’s modest twogame winning streak. The Spartans had the better of the Bisons in most statistics, but the telling one was turnovers as TWU finished with 37 to the Bisons’ 23.

University volleyball

Wins set Spartans up for playoffs SAVE $90

Trinity Western University men’s volleyball players were an impressive lot Saturday as they earned a momentum-garnering three-set sweep over the Manitoba Bisons at the Langley Events Centre. Set scores are 25-17, 25-17, and 28-26. Trinity Western’s men came out with a purpose and proved that with a couple of heavy kills early from Rudy Verhoeff and Josh Doornenbal that made a statement about the type of night it would be: a night for the Spartans. “I thought the first two sets were really smooth,” TWU coach Ben Josephson said, following the victory. “We just made some really dumb errors at key times to allow

the game to stay a little tighter in the middle section. But we had good runs and separated when we needed to.” The win gave TWU third place in the final Canada West standings with a record of 13-5 and set up a first-round playoff date with Thompson Rivers University (TRU) this weekend, Feb. 17-19. The series started Thursday at the Langley Events Centre (results are not available due to press deadlines) and continues tonight (Friday) at 8 p.m. and Saturday, if necessary, at 7 p.m. at the LEC. This year’s TRU team still very similar to the WolfPack squad that knocked the Spartans out of the playoffs in 2009 in the last men’s volleyball game at Trinity Western’s David E. Enarson Gym. TWU women’s volleyball Trinity Western completed its regular season Saturday with a convincing 3-1 win over the Manitoba Bisons at the Langley Events Centre. Set scores were 25-17, 25-19, 16-

25, and 25-17. “We had a serving plan and we wanted to make certain players touch the ball in certain areas of the court, and I believe we did that for most of the night,” TWU coach Ryan Hofer said. The win gave the Spartans a 15-3 record on the year as they finish the regular season tied for first place in Canada West, but will wind up in second place going into the postseason after losing the sets won/sets lost tiebreaker to UBC. This means TWU is hosting Regina Feb. 17-19 at the Langley Events Centre in the first round of the playoffs. The winner of the best-of-three series will travel to UBC to play in the Canada West Final Four. The teams opened the series Thursday (results are not available due to press deadlines). The series continues tonight (Friday) at 6:15 p.m. and Saturday, if necessary, at either 5 p.m. or 7 p.m. at the LEC.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Four weeks of relative solitude, weariness and quietude begin now. “Relative,”because you’re in one of the luckiest periods of your life until June. Even low energy, seclusion won’t prevent bountiful results. Still, be charitable, reconnect with your spirit, deal with government and institutions, and plan. Crucial relationships confront you Sunday/Monday. Two bonds weaken, three are born. Be diplomatic. This brews: a) a new spiritual, compassionate outlook, or b) a wild romantic attraction that’s nine-tenths fantasy. Grab a legal settlement, investment, or intimacy/commitment. Taurus April 20-May 20: Get ready for rising popularity, social delights, optimism, wish fulfillment, entertainment and light romance! You have something to celebrate. Tackle chores Sunday/Monday. Let a brand new career or prestige project flow away: it has little future growth. Something bigger (and more social) is coming. Relationships offer excitement and good luck Tuesday/Wednesday – relocation, business agreements, friendships, new horizons fill these days. Life dives into deeper realms Thursday to Saturday. Your secret plans might be frustrated, or a “sanctuary” is disturbed. Avoid illegalities! Gemini May 21-June 20: Be ambitious over the next four weeks. You could meet someone in a position of power, authority or fame, whose reactions can affect your life. E.g., in a lawsuit, the judge appears. Romance, pleasure, beauty and creative urges lure you Sunday/Monday. A new intellectual, legal or travel project might begin, but let it pass: it has a short future. Tackle chores and health matters Tuesday/Wednesday. Exciting meetings (and perhaps fractious ones) occur Thursday to Saturday morning. One who cheats (even someone you like very much) will be squelched. Saturday holds secrets: look, think!

Cancer June 21-July 22: The weeks ahead will be mellow yet excited, you’ll feel understanding and compassionate, yet driven. Now to the end of March, strictly avoid legal hassles (unless the law’s your job, in which case you’re approaching a promotion or burst of good business). You might, if single, toy with making a “prestige marriage” – careful. Focus on children, property, security Sunday/Monday. Don’t start a new investment or research project. Romance calls midweek – sure, answer! Chores or health issues loom Thursday to Saturday noon. A partner/competitor steps on the hem of your ambitious garment. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The weeks ahead hold mysteries, depths, big investments, commitments, critical health factors, lifestyle changes. Your sexual urge rises to the surface – you could dream of marriage with a sexy someone. Marriage based on lust seldom lasts, so consider if this attraction holds mature love also. (It might!) Sunday/Monday bring errands, casual friends. Don’t start a big paperwork or mail project. Home, kids, property are fine midweek. Pleasure calls Thursday/Friday but, as all week, work or home duties tend to overrule travel, romance, legal affairs in a crucial way. Let duties rule. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Chase money Sunday/ Monday. A new work project might be discussed or offered, but it will have a short future, so I wouldn’t bother. Many new opportunities, new horizons, are going to appear over the few weeks ahead – wait for these. Errands, friends, communications, details and paperwork flow easily and successfully Tuesday/Wednesday. Obstacles centre on your home, security, real estate or family Thursday to Saturday morning. A partner or more casual relations are growing volatile (to late March). This can bring anger – or love! All week, finances meet communication obstacles.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A month of work and health concerns starts. Ah, well. Just plod forward. Your energy and charisma surge Sunday/Monday – and it might look like a new romance will spark – but this particular attraction has little future. Be patient: life’s bringing Libra singles a surprising gift – soon, soon. (Perhaps after an impending breakup.) Chase money, call clients, purchase items Tuesday/Wednesday – all’s smooth, fine. Short trips, communications, errands, casual friends, paperwork fill Thursday to Saturday morning – but not peacefully Thursday. A partnership or opportunity might hit a deep snag. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Romance, creative surges, speculative urges, pleasure and beauty fill the weeks ahead – you’re on a winning streak! Still, lie low Sunday/Monday. Rest, contemplate. A domestic or property project (and a “mad love” urge, or a therapy idea) might begin, but it will go nowhere, so let it slip away. Your energy, charisma and effectiveness soar Tuesday/Wednesday! Go forth, impress people, start important projects, ask favours. Shop (and chase money, if so inclined) after 4 p.m. Thursday into Friday, not earlier. All week, workplace communications face obstacles: don’t dismiss pleas. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The weeks ahead emphasize home, family, security, property. You’re on the verge of big expansions, big luck (especially in schooling and creative matters) and perhaps big romance – so it’s natural that you will end certain approaches, projects and relationships, in order to let new ones in. Do that now, this week, especially Thursday/Friday (and somewhat March 3 to 5). Happiness and hopes fill Sunday/Monday. Retreat from the bustling fray to handle important matters (e.g., admin. chores) Tuesday/Wednesday. Your energy rises late week: pick where you’ll stand (in life).

Feb. 20 - Feb. 26 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The month ahead accents errands, emails, casual friends, meetings, appointments, paperwork. You’re lucky in real estate, home, family and nature now through May, so spend the weeks ahead exercising your curiosity about these, handling associated paperwork, etc. Travel goes well, especially if family or property is involved. You might come to a place you will want to settle in, or which presents property opportunities. Your ambitions stand out Sunday/Monday: DON’T pursue a new career project. Happiness, popularity brighten midweek. Rest and think late week: decide on security goals. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Chase money, buy/sell, contact clients, and make important purchases during the four weeks ahead. Sunday/Monday emphasize higher education, legal affairs, far travel, cultural involvements. Don’t start a new project or relationship in these zones. If you wait, you’ll see that money and practical goals are a better bet. Be ambitious midweek: money and work combine well. Happiness, hope and flirtations enter Thursday to Saturday morning! But these few days also hold a subtle problem: you have to choose between talk and silence, loyalty and curiosity. Retreat later Saturday: rest. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness climb to a peak over the next few weeks. You’ll attract love and attention. Start new projects, ask favours, tackle things that intimidated you before. Your sexual magnetism and determination grow. This is also a lucky money period, so steer your drives in this direction. You could hit a jackpot! But all this week, you might need to choose between prestige and popularity, between ambition and your heart’s wishes. Wishes, popularity are more valuable. Don’t invest Sunday/Monday. Wisdom, gentle love bless you Tuesday/Wednesday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014

She said I only had to phone my doctor’s office for the referral, that I didn’t need to actually visit my doctor. But my family doctor refuses to give me a referral unless I visit her, even though she will do nothing other than make the referral.
