“Thou shalt not steal.” Thieves who think they have made off with a bounty of Easter lambs overnight Tuesday may find they simply have a bunch of dead babies on their hands, not to mention stealing something to commemorate one of the holiest events on the Christian calendar. Overnight Tuesday, someone broke into Ann Embra’s farm and stole 17 of her 34 lambs. The stolen lambs range in age from five days to one month. They can’t survive very long without the high-fat ewes milk lambs need. “This is my 21st year of lambing and I’ve never had anything like this,” she said of the theft. Embra said the sheep were fed at about 10:30 p.m. and the farm gate was locked. Embra recalls hearing the ewes bleating at about 3:30 a.m. Wednesday. The sheep would not have made noise during the break-in because they go quiet when threatened but have been vocal after their babies were taken. People who produce lambs for Easter had their ewes giving birth back in December so those lambs would be 40-50 pounds in spring, and economically worth raising. The stolen lambs weigh about 15 to 20 pounds but would be about eight pounds dressed out – no bigger than a house cat. The stolen lambs won’t be off milk for three months. If someone tries to feed them cows’ milk or other baby food products, they will simply die from dehydration caused by severe diarrhea, she explained. As well, it’s almost impossible to get a ewe to nurse a lamb that isn’t its own so trying to find a foster sheep is pointless. The babies’ digestive systems can’t absorb hay or grains, which will just pass right through. She said there is a ewes’ milk substitute but it’s very expensive, making it economically pointless to try and raise the lambs to sell. or an abattoir.

The three-month-old lambs had been put away in a secure barn March 22 but the lambs were taken. One was found on a neighbours’ property the next morning. The owner recalled seeing a dark full-size truck parked on 248th Street near the property with the ignition running in the evening of the overnight robbery. As well, a farm in the 24800 block of 10th Avenue was broken into during the night. Someone stole six ducks, 65 chickens and some feed. “Previously, the same farm on Dec. 27, 2010, the barn had been broken in to and 17 ducks were taken,” Roberts noted. Anyone with information about the stolen livestock is asked to contact the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 or their nearest police department.

Local caught

Two other suspects are still being sought in connection to a jewelry store robbery Tuesday. by Heather Colpitts

hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

The only bling one man arrested at the scene of Tuesday’s Oakridge Mall jewelry store robbery ended up wearing was a pair of handcuffs. A 23-year-old Aldergrove man was taken into custody at the scene and had a replica handgun seized from him at the time of his arrest, according to a statement by the Vancouver Police Department. Robert Steven Gallagher is currently in custody and is charged with one count each of assault, use of a firearm during the commission of a robbery, and use of an imitation firearm. Gallagher is known to police, VPD said. Around 4:30 p.m. March 22, two men entered the Montecristo Jewellers. During the robbery a security guard was allegedly assaulted and pepper spray was discharged at some point. Firearms are believed to have been involved but no shots were fired and there were no serious injuries to anyone involved. A quantity of store merchandise was recovered. The other suspect got away in a vehicle that was waiting. It’s a late 1990s green Chevrolet Astro van driven by a third suspect. The other suspect who was in the store is described as a Middle Eastern man in his 20s. The VPD Robbery/Assault Unit continues to investigate and is asking anyone with information about the two escaped suspects or the crime to contact the police at 604-717-2541 or through Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477.

Standoff ends peacefully

One man was taken into custody after a negotiator was called to an Aldergrove home Wednesday. by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

An Aldergrove man who barricaded himself in his home Wednesday night was peacefully taken into custody after a standoff lasting more than two hours. The Langley RCMP was called at about 9:40 p.m. to an Aldergrove home for a report of a distraught male who had barricaded himself in his residence. The Emergency Response Team was called in and a police negotiator was on scene to assist in defusing the situtation, explained Langley RCMP Const. Jillian Roberts. Just after midnight, the man was taken into custody. “The male was treated at the scene by EHS for minor self inflicted injuries,” she said. The incident involved the Langley RCMP ERT, a police negotiator, the Police Dog Service, Langley Township Fire Department, and BC Ambulance.

Trust democracy All right, already. Enough with the politics. Now it’s time for democracy. We get it that there is a minority government running things in Ottawa. We understand that that means political parties and their leaders will do a lot of pushing and shoving for position. Ongoing polling has reinforced the last election results, which indicated Canadians wanted a minority government, or at least, didn’t trust any of the available choices at the time with a majority. The question of trust that was a major factor in the 2008 federal general election has not been resolved – far from it. That question has grown in the ensuing years, through political coalitions, through snap prorogations of parliament, through accusations that the government has been withholding vital information from opposition members of parliament, and most recently, through the governing party’s contempt of parliament on two charges. To further erode the public’s trust in the minority parliament currently governing Canada, the opposition has consistently failed to stand behind its charges of contempt, incompetence, abuse of process, and disregard for democratic principles against the government side. The opposition parties’ refusal to act on such serious allegations in the past has left Canadian voters in a state of mistrust for all parties. The governing party, for its part, has taken on the airs of a majority – a form of contempt in itself, albeit one that the prime minister has apparently felt necessary to maintain what he believes is in the best interests of the country. The minority government has tabled a budget that says it has salvaged the best possible outcome for Canada in the midst of a struggling world economy. And it has tabled an attitude that the economic outcome is worth it at any cost – even occasional lapses into contempt for democratic process. Our parliamentarians can’t make up their minds between politicking and democracy. It’s time to trust the people to take responsibility for their future. It’s time to trust democracy. – B.G.

Time right to honour Dr. Bob

Amalgamation

Single Langley better than two

Dear Editor, Though I do not agree with the term “twits” used by R. Nyifra [Useless twits unsupportable, March 22

Letters, Langley advance], I agree that amalgamation is necessary between Langley Township and City. It would save taxpayers

Township council

Council curbs mayor’s effort

Dear Editor, It looks like the six pack of council (plus one) is at it again, curbing the mayor’s drive for positive change in the Township. When will they wake up and realize they are in their position to do what is right for the taxpayers, and to do what is best for the community and not to scrutinize, micro-manage and politic every move Mayor Green makes. It seems the six or seven pack would prefer to tie up, gag, and shove Green in a corner while they keep their hands comfortably placed on their seats beneath their bottoms. But when they do or are forced to get involved, they go against all common sense and the wishes of the taxpayers. I found it humorous to hear Councillor Jordan Bateman tell the public that councillors don’t just get blank cheques to hand out whenever they feel the need, yet he and the rest of his pack recently signed a big cheque for $8 million dollars to the operators at the Langley Events Centre with seemingly no repercussions. The LEC is only one of the many blunders the council and staff have orchestrated together over the last two years, and the time will come next November when we, the taxpayers, must hold them accountable for their actions. Tyler deBoer, Langley

money, and allow better collaboration and representation to the provincial and federal governments. Of course, I would expect CUPE to speak out against amalgamation, because it would result in work disposition or job loss. I am not for seeing people lose jobs or benefits, but I don’t believe in the “job for life” concept, either. Most companies do not have four or five people perform one job description from start to finish. As most private companies would attest, this practice is unsustainable. Township and City councils need to seriously work together as a team to bring the two Langleys together. They need to listen to what the majority of the Langley residents want: one Langley; one municipal vote for one mayor and council that represent the best that Langley is and has to offer to the rest of the province and country.

Evolution

No reason to care without creator

Dear Editor, A staunch evolutionist with strong beefs against a Creator God, Travis Erbacher’s latest sermonette [Poor arguments favour religion, March 22 Letters, Langley Advance] expounds, among other things, that humans “have innate, evolved moral intuitions.” How this moral sense came about in the first place, given the context of survival of the fittest, is a question Mr. Erbacher conveniently ignores. Allow me to play, for want of a better expression, the devil’s advocate. Evolutionary logic dictates that all of life is a struggle, and anything or anyone that

stands in the way of survival needs to go. So why should I care for those who are dying of AIDS or starvation in Africa? Nature is simply correcting an imbalance on that continent. Bless them for reducing, albeit involuntarily, the demands placed on this hugely overburdened planet. And why should I worry about global warming? As long as I can drive my SUV, things are fine. Oh, and I do not blame my dad for such callousness. I take full responsibility in the knowledge that evolution made me that way. Pim Schon, Langley

DON’T SIT IDLING BY

To save money and preserve air quality as well as your engine, avoid idling your automobile. As a general rule, unless you’re sitting in traffic, turn your engine off if you’re going to idle more than 30 seconds. Even when warming up your vehicle on a cold day, it’s best to allow the engine to warm up about one minute and then drive away at a slow speed until the engine becomes warm. Because an idling engine is not operating at peak temperature, fuel does not undergo complete combustion. As a result, fuel residues are more likely to condense on cylinder walls, where they can contaminate oil and damage engine components. For instance, while idling, the average temperature of the engine decreases, which hastens contamination and causes in-efficient combustion that can increase fuel consumption up to five percent. As well, If your vehicle’s temperature gauge is always sitting on cold, it is a good indicator your thermostat may be defective. It is important to have it looked into right away. The expert technicians at PRECISION AUTO SERVICE, can analyze your car, and ascertain whether or not your vehicle needs service. Our trained technicians can professionally diagnose any problem your car, truck, or SUV is suffering from. Questions? Stop by #101-22575 Fraser Highway, or call 604.530.9394. TIP: A defective thermostat can keep an engine from ever reaching the desired operating temperature or even from shifting into overdrive and this can dramatically reduce your fuel economy.

My dad turned to me and said, “Judi, if you have the opportunity to learn from this man while you are here at Trinity, I will consider your education here worthwhile.” So I took all of his classes, and was so inspired from what I learned from Dr. Bob, that while at graduate school in Virginia, I wrote my Masters Thesis on his life. Education and service was the passion of his heart, whether in Langley, Ottawa ,or around the world. Everyone who knew him would agree Dr. Bob poured his life into his family, his community and his country. When many of us heard that Langley School Board had invited the public to submit suggestions for the new elementary school being built in Willoughby, very close to Fort Langley and Trinity Western University where he lived and served, we thought it might be wonderful timing to honour Dr. Bob Thompson in this way, especially with this coming year being the 50th anniversary of TWU. Even if his name isn’t chosen for this school, there are many of us who knew and loved Dr. Robert N. Thompson.

Dear Editor, What’s in a name? I’ve always loved history – especially local history. One of my goals is to learn the story behind every school in Langley that is named after someone from our history. My daughter attended R.E. Mountain Secondary. Who was R.E. Mountain? She did summer theatre at H.D. Stafford. Who was Mr. Stafford? It’s good to remember and honour those who have gone before and paved the way for us. One of those “men of history” is not only of local fame, but national and international, as well. Dr. Robert N. Thompson (19141997) became lovingly known over many years in Langley as “Dr. Bob.” Dr. Bob served his family, his community, his nation, and the world, and he became known as “Mr. Langley” and “Mr. Canada” in the hearts of thousands of students, parents, educators, business people, charities and politicians. And Dr. Bob became my friend and mentor, too. When I first arrived as a student at Trinity Western University, my father walked with me past a glass window with some of the Robert N. Thompson collection of “Canadiana!” and African memorabilia.

MP defends new budget The latest federal budget won’t be enough to stop a national election. by Heather Colpitts

hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Langley’s federal Liberal candidate said the budget announced this week by Finance Minister Jim Flaherty is pretty non-specific. “And there are holes in it you can drive a truck through,” said Rebecca Darnell. “We need specificity. We need transparency.” Darnell noted that when Harper came to power, the books were balanced. “They inherited a surplus,” she said. The budget will increase the national debt by another $30 billion, putting it at $586 billion. The deficit for this budget year will be $29.6 billion. The Liberals are forcing an election because of the recent contempt of Parliament ruling. “They are in breach of their ethical obligations to the peple of Canada,” Darnell said. She added that Canadians should be concerned that for the first time in the history of this nation, a government has been found in contempt of Parliament. That’s why the Liberals want to head to polls. “We need to have this election,”

Darnell said. She said she’s got her campaign office ready for when the writ is dropped, likely next week and looks forward to taking on incumbent MP Mark Warawa. “It is my claim that Canadians as well don’t want a government that is known as a Harper government, they want a Canadian government,” she said. Langley Conservative MP Mark Warawa said the budget is an example of the balanced approach Harper is taking. “I thought it was a great budget, considering that we are still recovering from a very tough global recession,” he said. Warawa pointed to the many groups that will benefit. Low income seniors will receive more Canada Pension Plan funding, and the budget calls for an end to the federally mandated retirement age of 65. “We want to give seniors a choice,” he said. The popular Eco Energy Retrofit program is being expanded by another year, student loans for doctors and nurses will be forgiven if they work in underserved communities, and the gas tax will continue to flow to communities for instrastructure, he said. Warawa noted that the government is continuing its review of all departments to find cost-saving measures. He defended the additional $2.3 billion in spending. “It’s part of our next stage of the Economic Action Plan,” he said.

Over just five years, Langley Township has done a complete aboutface when it comes to

building new housing. Langley has long been seen, especially by residents of the urbanized Metro Vancouver area, as the land of suburban lots, of single-family homes with front and backyards. As recently as 2006, that was true, according to data provided by the Township’s economic development department. In 2006, 78 per cent of all housing units that

Growth building density in Township started construction in the Township were single family homes. That number collapsed in the four following years, with each year seeing fewer and fewer single family homes built: 2006 – 78 per cent 2007 – 48 per cent 2008 – 42 per cent 2009 – 29 per cent 2010 – 25 per cent Now 75 per cent of homes in the Township are multi-family, which means they are townhouses, rowhouses, or low-rise condos. Langley is now building fewer single-family units than the Metro Vancouver average, said Gary MacKinnon, the Township’s economic development officer. Over the same five-year period, the numbers for Metro Vancouver fluctuated, but didn’t drop like Langley’s numbers. Metro Vancouver singlefamily homes: 2006 – 30 per cent 2007 – 20 per cent 2008 – 18 per cent 2009 – 35 per cent 2010 – 30 per cent MacKinnon pointed out that going back years, Langley has always been higher than the Metro Vancouver average when it comes to building detached homes. “We’re densifying,” MacKinnon said. He said

this is less a deliberate plan than the result of market forces. “These are builders making decisions here in the Township of Langley,” MacKinnon said. Much of this densification is taking place in the Willoughby area, from 68th Avenue to the Trans Canada Highway, but other neighbourhoods, from Murrayville to Walnut Grove, are also adding multi-family dwellings at a high rate of speed. With a huge number of new multi-family projects planned for the next few years in Willoughby – one project already in the works is anticipated to have about 1,500 units, most of them condos – it will give Langley some opportunities, MacKinnon said. “You’re finally going to get TransLink’s attention,” MacKinnon said. The other side is that retailers are going to increasingly look at Langley as a good place to set up shop, he said. Langley is still projecting two to three per cent population growth over the next few years. Its current population is estimated at 106,000. “That kind of steady growth is attractive to retailers,” MacKinnon explained.

NOW, more than ever, it’s important to plan ahead.

Local food buyers met with local food producers at the Fort Langley Community Hall on March 14.

Thanks a million to Mr. Tidball, Keg

Lower Mainland food buyers met their makers.. Local chefs, retailers and distributors came together with local farmers, fishers and food processors for a one-day Meet Your Maker event at the Fort Langley Community Hall on Monday March 14. “It’s local food producers connecting with local buyers,” event manager Bonita Magee said. The Langley Farmers Market, A Bread Affair in the City of Langley, and Fort Langley’s Wendel’s bookstore and cafe were able to mingle with Bishop’s of Vancouver, Pro Organics of Burnaby and Maple Ridge’s Hardbite Potato Chips. Ron Tamis of Rondriso Farms in Cloverdale produces SPCA certified beef and said the event was an opportunity to connect with his fellow farmers and food producers to discuss food delivery systems and product availability. “It’s looking for future markets,” Tamis said. Meet Your Maker was organized in part by FarmFolkCityFolk and Local Food First as a stepping stone “We’re going to have for long-term investment in to increase local food Vancouver’s food Brett Bonderud/Langley Advance production.” future. “If Vancouver Meet Your Maker event manager Bonita Magee, left, and FarmFolkCityFolk’s Erin Nichols, brought BONITA MAGEE wants to be the together local food producers and buyers in Fort Langley. greenest city by 2020, we’re going to have to Valley so we [brought it] out to them,” Events for this year included workshops increase local food production,” Magee Erin Nichols of FarmFolkCityFolk said. on creating a professional buying club, said in a press release prior to the event.

I’d like to extend a heartfelt thanks to Langley’s own George Tidball for opening the first Keg’n Cleaver in North Vancouver back in 1971. The reason I’m thanking him personally is two fold. First, we can credit this local man with creating a restaurant chain that has served up many dinners in Langley to me and my family through the years (first when it was part of the original Thunderbird arena complex, and later in its newer location). And there’s also been many a date night and group feast/party held at other Keg locations around the Lower Mainland. But what’s more exciting and newsworthy at this time is the announcement that the Keg is celebrating 40 years in business and doing so with quite a splash. In a campaign dubbed Thanks A Million, The Keg Steakhouse & Bar is donating $1 million to the communities that have contributed to its success. Who would have thought this Langley entrepreneur’s vision over four decades ago would culminate in this. Specifically, The Keg will award 40 grants of $25,000 each to fund community-based projects or initiatives in Keg communities across Canada, and select states in the U.S. This opportunity is not only open to charities, but other organizations and individuals who need funding for a community project or initiative. Projects can be submitted for any Keg community, and can be charitable, community-focused, or educational in nature. The campaign kicked off earlier this month, and entries must be in (www. kegsteakhouse.com) before April 30.

There are changes afoot at a company that has called Milner home since 1949. Westgen uses computer software, liquid nitrogen, and sterile labs to help its members and customers across western Canada breed better cattle. The company produces and ships bull semen for artificial insemination. The goal is for farmers to add genes that carry positive traits to their herds, including higher milk production or greater weight. In a press release, Westgen’s board of directors unanimously approved a plan to close the studs’ barns and move the Semex Alliance-owned bulls currently housed at Westgen to other Semex Partner facilities. It is expected that all of the bulls will be moved by March 31. Originally known as the Lower Fraser Valley Artificial Insemination

Question answered

And by the way, thanks to the Township’s senior development planner Robert Knall for giving me the 411 on the Walnut Grove site I asked about last week. I was wondering what was going in next to the Great Canadian Oil Change company on the one-way section of 201st Street. I’m told, and was even slipped a copy of the

development permit proposal, that Chevron is developing a new fourisland gas bar with a convenience store (Town Pantry), car wash, and a White Spot Triple O’s restaurant next to the existing cardlock that faces 200th Street.

Legge shares

Probably in part as a favour to his friend Lynn Whitehouse, author and motivational speaker Peter Legge is speaking at a special luncheon for the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce today. Legge lives his life dream as an internationally acclaimed professional speaker, a bestselling author, and a chairman and CEO of one of the largest, independently owned magazine publishing company in Western Canada, Canada Wide Media Ltd. He’s sharing his Power of A Dream message with a little more than 100 chamber guests who will gather in the Coast Hotel banquet facilities for food and inspiration, said Whitehouse, the chamber’s executive director. Your dream is still possible, or so he plans to convince those in attendance, who have paid $40/$50 (member/nonmember) for the meal, Legge’s speech, and a copy of his new book called The Power of a Dream. The book is filled with thought-provoking ideas and stories about real people who are pursuing their own unique dreams, transforming their lives – and in the process, the world around them. He hopes their inspiring tales will help people find the courage to chase their own dreams, no matter how big. And sttay tuned for more chamber happenings.

eeling overwhelmed by stuff lying around the house? “There’s lots of reasons why clutter can take over – people are busy raising their kids, or are disorganized by nature, or like to shop a little too much, or have been dealing with family difficulties and haven’t been able to keep up,” said TV researcher Rachel Knudson. “No matter why it happens, the clutter is now affecting stress-levels and relationships in the house.” Langley residents have a chance to be part of Consumed, a new program being filmed in the Lower Mainland that will tackle the topic. “We are looking for families that are overwhelmed by clutter. Our families are not hoarders, rather they are normal families whose stuff has piled up over the years,” explained Knudson. Most Canadian home improvement and reality shows film down east. “This is one of the first HGTV shows to be produced on the West Coast, so we are very excited about giving this incredible opportunity for home improvement to Vancouver area residents,” she said. Host Jill Pollack, an organizational expert, will challenge participating families to see what it’s like to live with less. “The shooting process takes place over a five-week period,” said Knudson. “Throughout that time, Jill offers organizing challenges and support, and gives the family a chance to purge their homes of unwanted stuff. By the end of shooting, their home will look and feel amazing.” Consumed will be broadcast on HGTV in the summer and fall of 2011. It is created by local Vancouver company Paperny Films (http://www.papernyfilms.com/). Any interested families can contact 604873-9777 ext. 251 or consumedshow@gmail. com. “We will be actively searching for families for the next month or two, so people should contact us right away to get their name on our list of potential candidates. We will be filming the series until July 2011,” she said.

Shawanda sizzling

S

hawanda exploded on to the country music scene a few short years ago, in 2009 winning the CCMA’s Female Artist of the Year. Hailing from Wikwemikong, Ont., Shawanda is the first native to win this prestigious award and to be a three-time Juno nominee. She signed to RCA in 2007 and released her debut single, You Can Let Go in January 2008, which became the fastest climbing single on the Canadian Country singles chart since Carolyn Dawn Johnson’s Georgia in 2000. It reached the top 10 in five weeks and later documented her rise to fame on CMT’s sixpart series, Crystal: Living the Dream in February 2008. There’s been no stopping this Canadian superstar who was recently invited to perform for her biggest audience yet – 60 million people – at the Macy’s Day Parade in New York. She’s just released her new

CD and the first single already reached No. 3 on the charts.

Brownlee moving up

L

ike Shawanda, Brownlee is a relative newcomer too. The Kelowna-born singer leapt into the Canadian country music scene in 2009. This former professional hockey player, drafted by the Vancouver Canucks on the sixth round in 2003, turned country music performer is one of Canada’s most talked about new artists. This past year he’s garnered a nomination as CCMA’s Rising Star Award and was the recent recipient of three BCCMA awards including Male Vocalist of the Year, Socan Songwriter of the Year, and Rising Star of

the Year. His debut self-titled album, which was released last August featuring his hit single, The Best That I Can Be (Superhero) is selling incredibly well in stores across Canada, as well as on iTunes.

McLean wins on radio

T

he youngest of three musically inclined sisters, McLean performed for years with her siblings (The McLean Girls) before making a breakthrough as a solo artist last year. Now being called the “quintessential chick-with-guitar,” McLean throws a stark and dramatic silhouette on stage, cross-referencing Bonnie Raitt rootsiness with Keith Urban

virtuosity. In the spring of 2010 a radio station in Abbotsford held a province-wide contest to find the best young talent out there. Up against more than one hundred contestants, she survived round after round until she won. Watch for this one.

Adams going strong

F

ollowing the release of her debut album last fall and the completion of high school, this 19-year-old D.W. Poppy grad is finally able to get on with the music career she’s been mapping since she was five. At a relatively young age, Adams began performing at various fairs and festivals around her hometown of Langley. Then, since age 12, she’s been a regular at Merritt Mountain Music Festival. By age 16, she was chosen as a showcase artist in 2008 at the CCMAs, and last year was named Female Vocalist Of The Year at the BCCMAs. Now, in addition to next week’s hometown show, Adams will be performing at Merritt again this July and the Rockin River Music Festival in Mission in August. Not only is it an incredible lineup of performers, but there’s a bonus attached to this show that organizers believe will appeal to local country music fans. Partial proceeds from this concert will be going to the BC Country Music Association, an organization (www.bccountry.com) based out of Langley that supports and promotes performers from this province. The show begins at 8 p.m. on Friday, April 1 at Cascades Casino, 20393 Fraser Hwy. Tickets are $40 and available at www.ticketweb.ca or from the casino’s guest services.

ver the past year, several of the local business owners and managers have been working with the Township of Langley and the RCMP on issues such as, Crime reduction, beautification and humanitarian projects.

Aldergrove… Our Community!

As a result of these activities, the crime level in Aldergrove has dropped significantly and pride in the community has soared. Forming a Business Association was a natural progression and has now been launched.

Aldergrove is a vibrant, growing and prosperous community that we are very proud of. We have seen this community come together and have witnessed firsthand, huge pride and ownership. We have almost anything a family could need. Aldergrove is open for business and is your “one stop shop” community.

03253023

With the development of an Aldergrove Business Association, continued efforts in regards to Township projects will be enhanced, but there are several other benefits in forming this Association. By being a part of the Aldergrove Business Association, you will find an opportunity to network with the various other businesses in the Aldergrove area. We will also continue to work with other groups and organizations that already exist in Aldergrove, enhancing what already exists. While encouraging each other to shop local, we will have a unified voice when working with all levels of government.

Driving A DIESEL? WE WERE BOSCH’S FIRST CHOICE AND SHOULD BE YOURS AS WELL! Precision Auto Service is the FIRST full service auto repair shop in Western Canada to be approved as a Bosch Diesel Service Centre. Bosch builds the fuel systems for most Diesel engines regardless of who’s name is on the truck. Not every repair shop or automotive technician is trained and equipped to handle their service and repair needs. With the cost of Diesel engines being well above the $10,000 mark, you probably want to take it to someone who is well versed in their unique service needs. Whatever model of truck you drive, Precision Auto Service can handle ALL of its needs. Our Diesel truck experts, located at #101 - 22575 Fraser Highway, are trained to service your Diesel specific needs.

There are a lot of recommendations from dog training experts and veterinarians alike about the benefits of having a canine treadmill, especially if you have a high energy dog. You only have to see an episode of ‘The Dog Whisperer’ featuring Cesar Millan to see just how valuable dog tread mills are, both for dog rehabilitation and to drain excess energy. Dog treadmills are designed specifically to make your dog take larger strides, stretching more than when being walked on the lead. Other benefits of using a dog treadmill is that it will help nervous dogs to channel their energy, releasing pent-up stress and of course improving behaviour. We all know that one of the most important parts of a dog’s daily routine is exercise. Without it, your dog will become highly strung, frustrated and possibly destructive if he or she doesn’t get this outlet for physical exercise and mental stimulation. Dog treadmills are also brilliant for when you have an older dog or a pet recovering from an operation or illness that needs gentle exercise. With a treadmill you can monitor how much your pet walks, minimizing risk of injury, removing the worry of him/her getting tired or lame.

arious anemones are in flower through much of the spring, summer, and fall, and are well worth acquiring. All are beautiful and have relatively large flowers, and most tolerate a range of soils. The earliest bloomer is Anemone blanda, which uncoils itself from the soil in early March and opens its daisy-like flowers in purple, mauve, pink, or white when sunshine touches them. It comes from the eastern Mediterranean, but is quite hardy in southwest B.C. and not fussy about soil. Sun or light shade suits it well, and it self-sows abundantly. Equally hardy is the wood anemone (Anemone nemorosa), which produces somewhat smaller flowers just a little later. It comes from moist woodlands in northern Europe and makes a low mat of white, purple, pink or mauve flowers above creeping, shallow rhizomes. The pale mauve ‘Robinsoniana’ is one of the best known. The double white ‘Vestal’ is another. Also lovely is ‘Allenii’ which is pinkish-purple. Even though the foliage vanishes fast after flowering, these wood anemones can spread

quickly in moist, woodsy conditions, and shoulder out delicate neighbours. Anemone sylvestris is another hardy, easy-care anemone from north European woods where it thrives in semi-shade and moist, leafy soil. It puts out white, single flowers over a long period in late spring. The blooms are fragrant and give a second display when they mature into white balls of cottony seedheads. This one is easy from seed, forms clumps, and recovers quickly if divided. Anemone pulsatilla (also known as Pulsatilla vulgaris) has showy flowers in brilliant violets, mauves, reds and also white and pale pink. The leaves are finely serrated, the stems and buds sport fine silky hair, and silky silvery seedheads follow the blooms. It’s really a plant of dry grasslands, which requires special effort in shady, acid clay gardens. It loves sun, lime and well-drained soil. It hates being moved. In sandy, coastal gardens it self-seeds abundantly and is very long-lived. As summer begins, the poppy anemone (Anemone coronaria) opens big, cup-

shaped single flowers in red, blue, white, pink, and various bi-colours. The double St. Brigid mix comes in similar hues. They are more likely to survive the winter in coastal gardens than further inland, because they originate from warmer climates than ours. They need well-drained soil, full sun, and dry, hot summers. Like some others, Anemone coronaria seedheads are fluffy and drift on the wind. The latest display comes from early fall-flowering Japanese anemone hybrids, at home in most soils, a range of pH levels, and sun or shade. In fact, they can be invasive, especially in rich soil where they can grow very tall, though they seldom need staking. Popular single varieties include the white green-centered ‘Honorine Jobert,’ and the pink ‘Queen Charlotte.’ White and pink doubles can also be found.

Women’s soccer

Spartans blank Prospects Trinity Western dominated the game Tuesday. The Trinity Western University women’s soccer team got goals from Tessa Meyer and Nikki Wright and a shutout from goalkeeper Kristen Funk in a 2-0 victory over the Vancouver Whitecaps Prospects Tuesday at Rogers Park. After an opening 20 minutes in which the Whitecaps had the initial jump while TWU’s Spartans struggled to find their legs, Trinity Western slowly took control of the game, and by the early stages of the second half, was clearly the better side. Playing a team that possesses highly touted TWU recruit Vanessa Kovacs (who was on the sidelines with an injury), the Spartans earned their third win of the spring season in a match that saw strong efforts from a variety of players. “It’s a good performance in some ways because we haven’t scored for a little bit,” TWU coach Graham Roxburgh said. “I was really pleased with [the] effort, especially after 20 minutes. We started flat and credit to the Whitecaps. They have a couple of talented players. We knew we were in for a game.” continued on page A29…

Amateur boxing

Winning night for City pugilists City boxers battled to four wins and a draw at Clash at the Cascades 7. The luck of the Irish may have been with Langley pugilists at the St. Patrick’s Day Bash amateur boxing show last Friday at the Coast Hotel & Convention Centre. It was a winning night for most of the Langley-based boxers, as well as Abbotsford’s B.C. welterweight champion Jake Weitzel, who won a second title. Langley’s City Boxing had six representatives on the card and may have had its best outing in the club’s nearly six-year history. City trainer and show matchmaker Dave Allison feels the reason for the great outing was the club’s move to Revolution Gym. “The facility we have here is world class and allows us to bring the fighters to the highest possible level,” Allison said. “We are very happy to be part of the Revolution Fight Team.” In a champion-versus-champion bout, Weitzel, who started his amateur boxing career in Langley, defeated Sharvin Soltani. Soltani, of Raw Boxing, was a silver medal winner at the Canadian nationals. With Soltani’s B.C. COMBSPORT super lightweight title at stake, Weitzel won a close split decision. Weitzel got the nod on two of the judges’ scorecards: 98-97 and 98-97. One judge went 98-97 for Soltani. Walnut Grove’s Shawn McDonald won the semi main event, taking the rubber match over rival Jay Kelly of POWD. Kelly did not answer the bell for the second round.

A punch from Jake Weitzel found its way through the defence of Sharvin Soltani during their B.C. super lightweight title bout, part of the St. Patrick’s Day Bash last Friday at the Coast Hotel & Convention Centre. Allison reported that some controversy occurred after Kelly tripped over referee Gord Racette at the halfway mark of the opening round. “It was resolved by going to the scorecards, that showed McDonald winning on all three cards,” Allison said. McDonald was also awarded the Walters Trophy as boxer of the year. In a very exciting heavyweight bout, “Big” Nate Nowalk – at 6’7” and 267 pounds – put his No. 1 ranking and undefeated record on the line against City Boxing’s Ritchie Evanochko who, at 5’11” and 234 pounds, gave up both height and weight. Evanochko pressed the action and used a roll-and-hook to get under Nowalk’s jab. The judges all saw it for Evanochko via unanimous decision.

Langley’s Matt Lee looked strong in a comeback fight over veteran Dave Diamond of Abbotsford. Lee appeared to win a competitive first round and went out in the second round and stopped Diamond. Seventeen-year-old Mat Andreatta of City Boxing was in tough in defeating Derrick Wong, 22, who landed some hard shots and made it a tough fight all the way. Andreatta is now 6-0 and will be heading down to the United States very soon to get other matches, said Allison, who trains the young boxer. “We would like to fight Jesse Brown, who is the Canadian featherweight champion, however we don’t know if this will happen,” Allison said. Brown has about 50 fights under his belt.

and sent it into the box, Meyer was the beneficiary, burying what would end up being the winning goal. Trinity Western went into the halftime break with a 1-0 lead but it turned out to hardly be precarious. Led by an energetic Boyd in the second half, the Spartans turned their game up a few notches. Eventually, the Spartans broke through as, in the 80th minute, Wright ran down an Alexi Foster through ball, beating both the defender and Vancouver ’keeper Ally Williamson with her speed down the left side, and whipped the ball across the goal line from a tough angle. ••• The Spartans’ next action is in the Keg Spring Cup in Victoria, where they will take on Victoria in the semifinal Saturday at 2 p.m. The winner advances to the final Sunday, also with a 2 p.m. kick-off.

Hockey

Seven lead West to title A strong contingent of Langley players helped Team West win the tournament title. From March 14-17, the Pacific Coast Amateur Hockey Association held its first annual Fraser Valley Conference Midget “C” Scholarship Tournament. Three teams were created by tryout: one from PCAHA West, one from PCAHA East, and one from PCAHA North. Seven players from the Langley Minor Hockey Association were selected to the West team which included skaters and goaltenders from Langley and Surrey.

The seven players from LMHA involved in the tournament included (left to right), Shane Carey, David Doerksen, Gerrad Freill, Ryan MacDonald (holding the trophy), Brendan Mykle-Winkler, Joel McGuire and, kneeling, Jonathan Doerksen. The selection was made from boys in their final year (all 17-years-old) as midget players.

The West team won the championship game, with a hard-fought 5-4 victory over the East.

‘Best Clash at the Cascades yet’ …continued from page A29

In what Allison described as “a barnburner of a fight,” Dale Kimber, 17, of City Boxing lost the first round to Raj Somal, 18, of Bisla Martial Arts. “In the second it seemed to be going the same way, then Kimber exploded with a game-changing left hook that turned the tide,” Allison said. It all came down to the last round, and just when it looked like Somal was re-establishing control,

Introducing

Kimber roared back to earn the draw. Dustin Oster boxed well against Ibrahim Ibrahim, who won a decision. For Oster it was his second bout while Ibrahim entered the ring for the first time. “The two 16-year-olds showed skill beyond their experience,” Allison said. In the night’s opening match, Tom McCormick of Chilliwack won a decision over Andrew Blanco of POWD in a light heavyweight bout.

“The eight-fight show was, in the opinion of many, the best Clash at the Cascades yet,” Allison reported.

Night’s awards

The Denny Ross Award for contribution to the sport was awarded to referee and judge Diane Dutra. The Walters Award for Fighter of the Year went to Shawn McDonald. The COMBSPORT Cup for Club of the Year went to Blue Corner Boxing.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Wow, suddenly everything’s going your way! BUT a few glitches: 1) delays occur now (technically Wednesday) to April 23; 2) higher-ups are judgemental, and have the power to alter your deepest circumstances; 3) one of these higher-ups, or someone on your level but slow, careful, conservative, opposes you (but subtly, pretends to retreat). Best course: 1) stick to the past for success; 2) be good; and 3) seek common ground with that “opposer,” rather than fight. All this aside, your energy and charisma are high and handsome, luck touches you, and friends gather, especially Monday-Wednesday! Taurus April 20-May 20: Don’t look for co-operation Sunday/Monday or Saturday; act alone, especially in areas of communication, law, ethics, culture and travel. All week, lie low, recharge your emotional and physical batteries. Though it might not show in a big way, Monday brings the climax of a long work or health trend. From here on, you’ll be more free to pursue your favoured direction in these. Wednesday through April 22 brings back past involvements with spiritual, charity, government, corporate or institutional situations: clear up neglected work. Start nothing new. Happiness, late week! Gemini May 21-June 20: Wishes come true over the weeks ahead – old, former wishes, or their fulfillment has something to do with the past. A former friend or old flame might return. Don’t start new projects, ventures or relationships now through April 22. Reprise the past. You might be forced, nudged or tempted to review or recount the past – for whatever reason, this can benefit you, but might also bring a competition or adversary. A stalemate in love/ friendship areas climaxes (though quietly) Monday. Monday to Wednesday brings intellectual pursuits, love. Be ambitious Wednesday. “Mixed” joy Saturday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Start nothing new before April 23, Cancer. A past career, business or prestige situation, role or relationship (with parent, boss, VIP or authority) might return – and is probably – almost certainly – lucky. A “reluctant situation” or an obstacle to this area of endeavour, will climax early week. The benefit is that after the climax (which might be very subtle) you should be more free to operate ambitiously. (You might be freed from a mortgage, territorial restriction, or domestic holdback.) Mysteries and intimate desires “surface” early week. Wisdom, gentle love Wednesday-Friday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: A former (or ongoing) legal, international, travel, cultural, love, intellectual or publishing matter might heat up in a lucky way. (Yes, an old flame might appear.) An obstacle to these might be very strong Monday, but weaken after this. A new project in any area (especially these areas) will tend to fail, if begun before April 23. Even in ongoing things, delays, misunderstandings, indecisions and mistakes can occur, so proceed thoughtfully, alertly. Tackle chores Sunday. Exciting meetings MondayWednesday. Intimacy, secrecy, desire, research pull you Wednesday to Friday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: An old flame might return now or soon – and change your life. This could kick off an eight-year affair – or a lifetime love. Or not. The weeks ahead could merely brighten and deepen your love for one you’re with, and/or bring exhilarating joy around kids, or a great creative urge or speculative splurge. Barriers to all these peak Monday (mostly, this barrier has been your own caution, your monetary fears/plans) then slowly dissolve over the next two years. Despite everything herein, do not wed, relocate nor sign contracts now to August 2012. Until April 23, start nothing new.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Start nothing new before April 23. A former partner or spouse might return, play a key role – one that bodes luck or opportunity for you. Do NOT start a new project, situation or relationship, but do reprise the past or work with the ongoing. Your luck is high in partnership, relationship, relocation, litigation, negotiation, public dealings, fame, and co-operation – IF these relate to the past or are not brand new. Don’t drag your feet any longer: Monday is decision time, and your best decision is to drop the opposition. Romance early week. Tackle chores Wednesday-Friday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Work, work, work – and tasks are growing weekly. The good news: 1) this expansion of chores ends in early June, and 2) it is likely to bring a very satisfying uptick in earnings – try to make it permanent. Be alert and careful, as mistakes, delays, supply disruptions, missed meetings and indecision haunt the weeks ahead, to April 23. Until then, DO NOT start any new projects, nor let anyone assign you to a new task. And absolutely do not buy any machine, computer, appliance, etc. Oddly enough, work delays (due to administrative caution) now end. Romance or beauty, Wednesday on! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The month ahead is one of the most important – and luckiest – in a decade, maybe many decades. You might experience a big, obvious event, or a less marked but significant “turn” that heads you in a new, exciting direction, in creative, speculative, risk-taking, romantic, pleasure or beauty zones. Two secondary elements play an important role: 1) communications or travel, and 2) your personality. Relationships will be sober, or deal with a realistic environment. Through March 28, obstacles exist; be patient, then leap! Avoid brand new projects/people: reprise the past.

Cares! The Langley Advance has partnered with the BC SPCA to encourage responsible pet guardianship and the humane treatment of animals. Before purchasing a new puppy, ensure the seller has provided excellent care and treatment of the animal and the breeding parents. For a complete guide to finding a reputable breeder and other considerations when acquiring a new pet, visit spca.bc.ca.

Mar. 27 - April 2 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: A security-versusambition dilemma peaks (though subtly and without fanfare) Monday, then slowly dissolves. Here’s my timing advice: now through early June, increase your security. (As mightily as you can: buy a home, warehouse, expand sales territory, have a child – pretty good work for 2 months! – invest in retirement, etc.) Then, June 4 onward to October 2012, turn 180 degrees and concentrate on ambition, career, the outside world. In chasing security for the next 27 days, focus on situations, projects and opportunities from the past. Start nothing new. Fortune awaits! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Follow your curiosity this week and the next few – what you find can make a dream come true.Don’t peer into the future (unavailable at the moment) or even the present (too confusing) but into the past. There the gems, ideas, revelations exist. Short trips, errands, mail, casual friends, siblings, media, paperwork and communications are accented – and will contain some delays, mistakes and secondguessing to April 23. Until then, don’t start anything new, especially in these areas. E.g., a mail campaign begun now would be an expensive failure. You shine Monday to Wednesday! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Chase money – but chase it from the past, or continue with ongoing money projects. DON’T begin new earnings, spending projects. (Lemons abound, and you would head right for one.) If you follow this simple advice, your reward could be large, even immense. One more hint: even if it’s from the past, don’t rent, lease or buy real estate (okay, rent if you’re homeless, of course) and go slow with anything domestic: kitchen utensils, etc. Do NOT begin renovation projects. All this applies before April 23, but to some degree right to August 30, 2012. You rule, midweek to Friday! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014

Ice hockey

Spartans suffer rocky start to BCIHL playoffs TWU trailed 7-0 before breaking the shutout late in the second period.

The Trinity Western University men’s hockey team found itself teetering on the brink of postseason elimination this week. A 9-3 loss to Victoria in the Spartans’ first game of the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League playoffs Wednesday at the Burnaby Winter Club puts TWU in a precarious position. The Spartans played Thursday at BWC against Okanagan. The Spartans now will need to win four games in four days to win this year’s BCIHL playoffs.

five of which came on the power A loss Thursday ends the play against a Spartans penalty Spartans’ season. kill that worked at 87.5 per cent The result of last night’s game during the season, as the Vikes was not available when the Langley Advance eventually rolled to went to press the six-goal victory. “We drive and push Thursday afterVictoria was led and push and then noon. by Mark Prest, who Wednesday’s notched a goal and we stop. And you see game saw a four assists, and in the second period, strong opening Matt Schultz and five minutes for we get two fluky goals Steven Little, who the Spartans, just because we put it each had two goals. one in which Four other Vikes on net.” they outshot had multi-point Dwayne Lowdermilk Victoria 10-0. efforts. However, it For the Spartans, was the Vikes getting the first Brandon Long and Sam Gemmell goal of the game. each had two assists while Josh Victoria then proceeded to Stephenson, Benton Nickel, and explode for six more markers, Scott Holmes scored the goals.

In the second period, the Spartans’ night went from bad to worse as Victoria’s Prest scored an unassisted goal 35 seconds in the middle frame to make it 4-0, and the rout was on. The Spartans then put themselves in penalty trouble and that only helped the Vikes. On a five-on-three, Adam Courtnall ripped a shot fivehole on TWU goaltender Sean Langrieger to make it 5-0. Matthew Bell buried a rebound to make it 6-0, and then Brent Sutherland kept the roll going when he made it 7-0 with 4:29 left in the period. TWU fought back with a pair of goals, but it was far too large of a hole to climb out from.

“If guys don’t want to do their job or execute, you get what you get,” TWU coach Dwayne Lowdermilk said. “We’ve preached all year to just shoot the puck and get it on net. We had 11 shots before the game was eight minutes old and we ended the period with 13. We drive and push and push and then we stop. And you see in the second period, we get two fluky goals just because we put it [the puck] on net.” ICE CHIPS: Victoria outshot TWU 35-25. TWU was 0-5 on the power play while Victoria went 5-10. Langrieger made 22 saves while his teammate John-Paul Chapman made four saves.
