A classic 1950s London double-decker bus is being rebuilt and restored to roadworthiness by an Aldergrove man.

Double-decker heritage

History being bused in to Fort Langley

05180696_853_P1

A piece of British motoring history will roll in Fort Langley this Sunday in the form of a red bus.

It’s one of the icons of London, a moving, automotive symbol recognized worldwide. And Ian Newby of Aldergrove owns three. Newby will bring the best of his double-decker buses to the St. George’s Day British Motoring Show, the sixth annual presentation of classic British cars by the Langley Area

Mostly British Motoring Club. The bright-red former London bus has been a labour of love for Newby for years. “I always wanted one, I think every Brit has always wanted to own a double-decker bus, a London taxi, an English telephone booth, and a pub,” he said. Now he owns three of the buses, three London cabs, a phone booth, and a re-creation of a pub built into a barn on his property. His primary bus, the one which will appear in the car show, has a long and strange history that brought it to British Columbia.

The girlfriend of Kyle Barber broke down in uncontrollable sobbing on the witness stand, while testifying about a violent home invasion and stabbing that killed Barber. Barber died after two alleged Red Scorpions associates burst into the home he and his girlfriend shared in Langley, at the corner of 244th Street and Fraser Highway on March 28, 2009. Albert Jacob Jackman, 24, and Gregory Michael Barrett, 32, are charged with first-degree murder and manslaughter, respectively. The second day of their trial took place Tuesday in New Westminster Supreme Court. Crown prosecutor Christopher McPherson led “It looked like he was Barber’s girlfriend through the events of the day before in pretty bad shape the attack. On March 27, when I got there.” she noticed a ladder leaning up against a building next Const. Les Betker door, leading to an open window. She did not know the people living next door, the woman testified. McPherson also asked her about the couple’s marijuana grow operation in the basement, which she said was under 200 plants. She testified that she and Barber smoked a lot of pot, and that they sold it to some friends and co-workers. She owned a registered shotgun that was kept under their bed, in case their home was invaded by thieves looking for the grow op. On March 28, she and Barber came home from visiting an event at the Tradex and were watching TV in bed after dinner when a pickup truck pulled into the yard. Two men were at the door. “‘It’s your neighbours,’” the woman recalls one of the men saying. “‘Somebody broke into my house while I was gone.’” When she opened the door a few inches, the shorter “I went for the gun.” man pushed his way in, folTrial witness lowed by the taller man. Prosecutors say the shorter man was Jackman, the taller Barrett. “I knew something was wrong then, and I just fell to the ground crying,” the woman said. Jackman accused Barber of robbing him. “‘You took my s---, my $50,000 worth of s---,’” the woman recalled Jackman saying. The duo pushed Barber and his girlfriend into their bedroom, where Jackman choked Barber, she said. “I went for the gun,” the woman testified. She grabbed it from under the bed, but couldn’t stop the taller man, apparently Barrett, from wrestling it out of her grip. “I just kept saying that we didn’t do it,” the woman said. She offered the two men half a pound of pot – worth about $1,200 – and a few thousand dollars in cash they had in a small lock box, but said Jackman laughed and said it wasn’t enough. “When that wasn’t enough I told them we had more downstairs,” she said.

Thomas, Hannah,David and Daniel (standing in behind) Van Dyke have been watching the peahen that has taken up residence in Walnut Grove. The peahen perched on the fence looking into the Van Dyke’s kitchen window one day.

by Heather Colpitts

hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

The Van Dyke children were in the main-floor room of their Walnut Grove home that serves as their home school when the new neighbour moved in. While working on speeches about two weeks ago, something on the street caught the eye of Hannah, 14. “I looked out our window and said ‘there’s a peaock,’” she explained. She’s not sure why she instantly said peacock because the bird didn’t have any of the colourful feathers that come to mind. “I thought that it was rather strange to see such an exotic bird walking along our sidewalk,” she said. Her family was incredulous, until they too looked out and saw what turned out to be a peahen, they’ve since dubbed Bobby Joe. David, 13, went outside with a camera and the video he made was put in YouTube. What the family thought would be an interesting – and fleeting – sighting in their quiet neighbourhood has turned into a long-term guest. The family will look out and see the bird sleeping on the sloped roof of their neighhour’s house or walking along a fence top. During the day, the bird has been spotted sitting on the pebbles by a big evergreen or nestled in a flowerbed. Sometimes the peahen can be difficult to spot since its colouration is intended to help it blend into its surroundings. There is some colouration on the female but not the incredible palette of irridescence that the males sport to gain the attention of females for mating. The girl birds do, however, sport the nice crown on top of the head. The Van Dyke’s house cat Stripes decided to check out the situation when the peahen was in their backyard. “It’s usually afraid of birds,” Hannah said. But Stripes decided to take one

run towards Bobby Joe but has not shown any interest since. “I was amazed to see a peacock freely roaming in our yard one day, and then returning almost every day – often standing on our trampoline,” said their father Darryl. The Van Dykes have seen the bird around the area. All the kids deliver the Langley Advance and when David was out on his route, he saw the new addition to the neighbourhood a few blocks away. But Bobby Joe seems to have made its home base in the backyards of the Van Dyke and their immediate neighbour.

“We called the SPCA,” said Shawn, their mom. Apparently the birds are difficult to catch so the SPCA said it would only come out if someone caught her and that there have been no reports of lost or stolen peafowl. Unlike, say, Canadian geese which leave lots of droppings, the peahen has been a gracious guest, not making a mess and not making the loud screeching that occurs during mating season. “I think it’s really cool to have a neighbourhood bird,” said Thomas, 11. The family is okay if the bird

stays around but understanding if she leaves or the owner comes for her. “We’d be all sad,” said sevenyear-old Daniel. For now the family is adding a lesson on peacocks to their homeschooling and watching over the unique guest whose ancestors hailed from the Indian subcontinent. “It’s still a mystery as to where it came from, but we are hoping it will be reunited with its owner,” Darryl said.

Langley Township

Taxes up, but services not slashed A new budget for the Township will likely include a property tax increase. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

It looks like Langley Township property owners will be getting a 3.95 per cent tax increase this year. On Monday, Township council hashed out some details in its annual budget, and a final bylaw will be prepared for a vote later this month. Mayor Rick Green and Councillor Kim Richter voted against the measure; the two have typically opposed property tax increases, while other councillors argue they’re necessary to avoid cut-

ting services. While the tax boost is likely going ahead, a number of proposed cuts will not. Earlier this year, a series of minor cuts, totalling about $140,000, were proposed. But the latest numbers on people moving to Langley show the Township is growing faster than expected, which will give the civic government an extra $200,000 in revenues. In addition, the council has voted to move ahead with several million dollars worth of park projects. A field house for the parks at the Langley Events Centre, a new park next to the future Lynn Fripps Elementary in Willoughby, and an artificial turf field in Aldergrove will be funded this year. Those projects are being partially co-funded with groups such as soccer clubs, community groups, and the school district.

Coleman suggested that instead of Jackman and Barrett pushing their way into the house, the woman let them in because she had a guilty conscience about a break-in Jackman wanted information about. As the two men spoke on the couch, Coleman suggested, Barber jumped up and ran to the bedroom to get a shotgun from under the bed while the woman jumped on

Election

Getting registered is the key to voting, but the process isn’t painful. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Who can vote, when, and where? Anyone who is a Canadian citizen, is 18 years old on or before May 2, 2011, and is registered can vote. Most people are already registered and should receive confirmation in the mail this week. “All voter registration cards have been mailed out,” said Patrick Lucier, elections officer for the Langley riding. Potential voters are getting them in the mail now, and if there is any error on the card, they should bring it to the Elections Canada office at unit 103, 6375 202nd Street. That’s also where you can register if you don’t receive a card. Or register by calling Elections Canada at 1-800-463-6868, going to an advance poll

Nominations closed

The final list of candidates for the 2011 federal election in the Langley riding is as follows:

Rebecca Darnell, Liberal Piotr Majkowski, NDP Craig Nobbs, Pirate Party

There were no last-minute sign ups of independent candidates, and the deadline to join the race has now passed. on April 22, 23, or 25, or at your polling place on Monday, May 2. To register, you’ll need some ID, either one piece of government-issued ID with you picture, or two pieces of ID, at least one of which has your name and address. Failing that, you can take an oath and have an existing registered elector from your polling area vouch for you. Once registered, you can vote either on May 2, at one of the early polls, or at the Elections Canada office, which is open seven days a week. You can get more information by calling Elections Canada, by visiting the local office, or by visiting

Ind0-meeting set

Candidates will have a chance to meet members of Langley’s Indo-Canadian community Friday. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Langley’s Indo-Canadian community has never been heavily involved in local politics, but one resident is hoping to change that. Sukhi Dhami, an Aldergrove resident who ran for a Township council seat in 2008, has organized a meet and greet event for the federal candidates this Friday. “It’s an event to get the Indo-Canadian community more involved in politics here,” Dhami said. Even for Indo-Canadians who have long lived in Langley, local politics can be overshadowed by what’s going on in Surrey or Abbotsford. That’s despite the community’s steady growth ever year in Langley. Dhami said some local residents will head out of town to work with Indo-

Carey Poitras, Green Mark Warawa, Conservative

Canadian candidates in Langley’s neighbours, even if they can’t vote for them. By the same token, politicians here haven’t reached out directly to the Indo-Canadian community, Dhami said. This event will give the federal candidates a chance to meet with voters and answer questions about issues important to them. “Immigration will be a big one,” Dhami said, especially family reunification policies. But issues such as the economy will also come up, he believes. Although organized with the Indo-Canadian community in mind, the meeting is open to everyone. To attend, e-mail Dhami at sukhi@dhamigroup.com. The event will be held in Aldergrove starting at 7 p.m. and running to about 9:30 p.m.

Information age

Whatever is responsible for the low voter turn-out expected in the May 2 federal election, it can’t be a shortage of information about the politicians and their politics. Political parties, individual candidates, their supporters and detractors, and pundits and commentators with varying levels of expertise and credibility are everywhere. They have Facebook pages and Twitter accounts, and their images are produced and reproduced at YouTube and sundry similar venues. They populate the blogosphere and every corner of the internet. Some have developed their own mobile phone aps to keep in touch with their most ardent fans. There are still the old-fashioned means of contacting prospective voters, like email (who would have thought only a decade ago that email could ever be old-fashioned?) and television (from the attack ads that assaulted us months before the election call, to the nationally broadcast debate). And there’s radio and newspapers – not to mention that really old-fashioned communication: talking to people, face to face. That an immense quantity of information is available is without question. But the quality is often anything but unquestionable. In an age in which anyone can offer opinions for national perusal, how can the average voter sift through it all, with expectations of a credible, informed conclusion? For our part, we are offering coverage of the federal election at the local level in the Langley Advance, and at our online edition at www.langleyadvance.com where, by clicking on our Decision 2011 link (under the red bar near the top of the page) you can find up-to-the-minute national coverage from our associated regional newspapers, at Decision Canada, provided by canada.com. There’s a lot of information out there. We can only promise to do our best to provide the information you really need, and can trust. – B.G.

Gun rules turning off voters

Dear Editor, Langley is a strong Conservative riding represented by Mark Warawa, who will likely get re-elected. Unfortunately, too many here and across Canada choose not to vote. The percentage of voters going to the polls is in decline. I’m a long-gun owner and hunter. As it stands, the current long-gun registry is ineffective, ridiculous, and a nationally divisive issue. Stephen Harper wins with longgun owners, Liberals and NDP lose. There are 38,000 members of the BC Wildlife Federation who might well consider voting Liberal, if Michael Ignatieff were to announce only a few minor changes. A friend phoned just a few days ago to tell me Langley RCMP phoned with their request that he bring in all his guns the next day. His federal Possession-Acquisition Licence had expired. He’s a busy businessman who overlooked the expiry date. By now, the RCMP will have his guns. They promised to hold them for him until he renewed his PAL. If he can’t find his original documenta-

tion, he must begin the application process anew. The RCMP have better things to do. Here in B.C., well before our drivers’ licences are about to expire, we get a renewal notice. ICBC does not have our RCMP phone after expiry to request car owners bring in their vehicles for storage till licences are renewed. Similarly, property owners get tax notices from BC Assessment Authority and their municipal government well in advance of the due date. And as well, there’s an advance assessment appeal process. Liberal long-gun policy treats long-gun owners terribly, like criminals. Will Mr. Ignatieff change his? Announce minor changes now to win more votes? Extend PAL from five years to 10, and have the Firearms Centre send out renewal notices in advance? Gun-owners are law-abiding citizens, typical of the norm. Current Liberal gun policy treats law-abiding citizens like criminals on probation. Gun owners deserve respect.

Road safety

Scary intersection close to deadly

Dear Editor, This letter is in regards to the intersection of 264th and 24th. On April 11, a young driver and my 18-year-old son were coming home in a small Honda Civic, southbound on 264th Street, and

signalled to turn left onto 24th Avenue. As they were waiting to let an oncoming car pass by, a semi-truck passed them by on their left side, at full speed, and just had enough time to squeeze back in the right lane again to avoid the

Roads

Rail crossing wrecking cars Dear Editor, Is it just me, or has anyone else almost had their car’s suspension wrecked by the rail crossing on the Langley Bypass just west of Glover Road? The westbound lanes hit the railway lines like a ton of bricks. Do we just roll over and pander to the “rail traffic is essential to our economy” lobby? It’s pretty easy to pass the buck here: is it Langley City, Langley Township, Mainroad, the railroad? Or maybe it’s something else, like an act of God. Whoever is actually responsible for this abomination should have fixed it years ago. Or was it designed by the same moron that engineered the intersection of 56th Avenue and Langley Bypass? Win Bromley, Langley Township

oncoming traffic. Scary business! I frequently check my rear view mirrors when I make the same turn at this intersection. It should be upgraded before someone gets killed. One simple thing to do would be to make it a nopassing section of highway, by painting solid lines on the road. A better solution would be to install a stop-light with a turn lane, considering that the subdivision north of 24th Avenue and east of 268th Street has grown considerably over the past five to 10 years. A church has also recently opened on the corner of 24th Avenue and 267th Street, which increases the traffic from 264th Street. Even the expensive route would be cheaper than losing a few young lives. Aubrey and Jane Vandergaag

Harper minority not to brag about Dear Editor, Instead of attacking Michael Ignatieff, B. Burgess [Igantieff unknown quantity, April 12 Letters, Langley Advance] should compare Stephen Harper’s minority government to Lester B. Pearson’s. Prime Minister Pearson created universal health care, a new flag, student loans, Canadian Pension, and Order of Canada. He increased the role of the United Nations and won the Nobel Peace prize for his role averting disaster in the Suez Canal. Harper never held a job other than in the oil industry or in a partisan political field. He has no background in international affairs, and despite claiming to be an economist, he has never held such a title. He took the greatest surplus in Canadian history and turned it into the greatest deficit, with which we taxpayers are burdened.

TODAY’S FLYERS... in the Call 604-534-8641 for delivery info.

His solution to resolve the deficit is the same “trickle down economics” policy that bankrupted the U.S. economy. Burgess attacks Michael Ignatieff for working outside Canada. Ignatieff, a Rhodes Scholar, taught at universities in B.C., Ontario, Oxford, Cambridge, and Harvard. We want the best people to run for public office and create a government to better our citizens, and not someone spending wasteful tax dollars at the G20 in his rich country friends’ ridings. As a senior, I am appalled that the rightwing politics of fear and character assassinations appear to have their effect on some voters. A.

called would have enhanced the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS). Boosts in the Canada Pension Plan (CPP) and extensions to the home energy retrofit program are also planned. Finally, Warawa said the

mandatory retirement age for federally regulated employees would be scrapped. Carey Poitras of the Green Party said her party would move to put bankruptcy protection in place for private pension plans, and to increase the GIS, “to help seniors now,” she said. Increasing the number of long-term care spaces for seniors would also help move those who need care from hospitals to better facilities. It would also help free up hospital beds, Poitras said. A national pharmaceutical plan is also needed, as drug costs can eat up a lot of the income of seniors, she said. Liberal candidate Rebecca Darnell said her party will be looking hard a pension issues. “Our goal is not just to keep up with inflation but to catch up,” Darnell said, arguing that seniors pension income has fallen behind. She said her party would also immediately expand the GIS, and would incrementally expand the CPP. The Liberals would also start an optional contribution plan that would be administered by CPP. Private pension plans that had been “stranded” after the bankruptcy of their firms would also be taken under the government’s wing, Darnell said. “We simply don’t have enough family care out there,” she said. Expanding EI limits for people caring for relatives would help, she said. Outside of the official Liberal platform, Darnell said she favours alternative

health care options. Seniors in Langley are worried about health issues, said Piotr Majkowski, the NDP candidate. “It’s front and centre, people are really concerned about health care and the slow expansion of private health service,” he said. Although health is a provincial responsibility, the federal government can help the provinces expand home care and long term care, Majkowski said. “What we are looking at is making that easier for the provinces,” he said. The federal government can provide things like research and support, train more doctors and nurses, and get more foreign-trained health care workers properly certified in Canada, he said. The NDP also plans to double CPP over the coming years, in concert with the provinces. Majkowski said there would also be an immediate increase in the Guaranteed Income Supplement. When a firm goes bankrupt, new policies would put pension plans at the front of the line as creditors. Craig Nobbs of the Pirate Party said his party’s platform would involve slashing patents for pharmaceuticals to five years. While Nobbs personally favours a term of 10-15 years, shortening the patent limit would mean that drugs could be made by generic producers much sooner. “It would reduce the cost to the health system, sooner rather than later,” Nobbs said.

Junior A hockey

The Langley Chiefs celebrated a goal during the British Columbia Hockey League regular season. There is speculation the team is changing its name to Rivermen, with new ownership set to come on board.

by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

They’re not the Rivermen yet. Postings in the “Twitter-verse” – about Langley’s junior A hockey team changing its name from the Chiefs – are premature. Prospective owner Roy Henderson can’t confirm anything until a deal is completed to buy the franchise. Henderson and his brother John have put forward a formal purchase application to the B.C. Hockey League board of governors. It will be voted on in the next three weeks. The brothers are champing at the bit to get the ball rolling. “We are working on a confidentiality clause to begin with so it’s tough to disclose anything,” Henderson said. “I can’t really say right now because nobody’s really disclosed [the name change]. I would like it to be a surprise. We don’t have the club yet. We’ve met with the B.C. junior league and it’s all in their hands. It could still be the Chiefs, who knows?” The bottom line is, Henderson noted, the name remains Chiefs until he officially buys the hockey club. Moray Keith, one of the principal owners of the Chiefs, said his group had no intention to sell the team, but was approached by what he considered to be a small, committed group (the Hendersons) with strong business and hockey interests in Langley [Local group makes bid to buy Chiefs, Feb. 15, Langley Advance]. The team was owned by Keith and Jim Bond (both Vancouver businessmen), two Burnaby businessmen, and head coach Harvey Smyl. The deal has been in the works since this past October and Henderson stressed the team was “never for sale.” “We approached them and thought we could do something different – make it a little more entertaining to go to a hockey game,” Henderson said.

Langley Advance files

The move signals the end of an era. Smyl won’t be back next year. “I think there may be an opportunity for him in Chilliwack. That’s where he wanted to be right from day one,” Henderson said. “He had to drive [to Langley] from Chilliwack every day. That’s tough sledding.” Henderson said next year’s junior A squad will be “Langley’s team.” In the spring of 2006, the Chiefs Ownership Group was looking for a home for its team after the Western Hockey League’s Chilliwack Bruins moved into that city’s Prospera Centre, the former home of the Chiefs. The Chiefs originally considered relocating to Abbotsford, before landing in Langley. On a related note, the Langley Advance’s sister paper, Chilliwack Times, reported that the Bruins have been sold to a group that plans to move the team to Victoria, according to Keith, the minority owner of the WHL squad. Keith told CKNW sports reporter Jim Mullin that an agreement is in place that would see the team moved to Victoria.

Keith and business partner Jim Bond own a 25 per cent share of the Bruins, but the pair was outvoted by team president Darryl Porter and National Hockey League general managers Brian Burke and Glen Sather, each of whom also own a quarter of the club. Keith and Bond, who own the company that operates Prospera Centre, had submitted their own bid to buy the team. Mullin told the Chilliwack Times that Keith plans to go to the Western Hockey League’s board of governors and ask whether there are any WHL teams he could move to Chilliwack. Failing that, he will ask for another expansion team. If those options fail, he hopes to bring a BCHL team back to Chilliwack. Keith has agreed to sell his portion of the Chiefs, but retains the rights to the name “Chiefs,” according to the Chilliwack Times. Recent Twitter postings have Smyl and Keith making a bid to buy the BCHL franchise in Quesnel and then move it to Chilliwack. A new Chilliwack Chiefs would be coached by Smyl, a Chilliwack resident who has been non-commital when asked about his future in Langley.

Poker winning

As a breast cancer survivor myself, and friends to many others who have battled and defeated or fallen to this disease, I want to extend a heartfelt thanks to Cascades Casino. In the casino’s ongoing efforts in the fight against breast cancer, they’ve recently donated a whopping $34,000 to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. They raised the money from the Women’s Poker Classic, a four-day event held last month that attracts hundreds of women from across Canada and the U.S. Over the course of the event’s sixyear history, it has already raised more than $150,000 – pretty impressive. I also applaud WPC organizers for adding something new into the 2011 event. They incorporated the Donna van Aert Memorial Award, which recognizes all champions (past, present, and future). Van Aert was the 2009 main event champion, winning despite her ongoing battle with cancer and chemotherapy treatments. She played and placed second in 2010, a short time before losing her battle with cancer. The seventh annual WPC is already scheduled for February 2012. Although I’m not much of a gambler, and suck at even the friendliest game of Texas Hold’em, I might think about joining the ladies around the table next year.

Test drives help schools

And speaking of donations, although not on quite that same scale, it’s darn close and darn commendable. Langley’s Dams Ford Lincoln, in partnership with Ford, is striving to raise $14,000 for local schools, in an undertaking that began at the start of the month, and culminates with a final event tomorrow (Saturday, April 16).

Over three consecutive weekends, they’re running a program called Drive One 4 UR School. It sounds kinda cool. For every person who testdrives a Ford vehicle at an event, Dams Ford Lincoln and Ford of Canada will donate $20 to the school, up to a total of $6,000 for each school. That translated to $2,440 raised the first weekend for the Langley Fine Arts School. The goal last weekend was to raise up to $6,000 for Willoughby Elementary. I haven’t heard the outcome yet, but that money is earmarked to help replace the school’s playground equipment. And this weekend’s event will not only be held at, but also benefit Coghlan Fundamental. Coghlan will put its monies towards library books, art supplies, sports equipment and more. So if you’ve got some spare time to take a drive, or better yet, you’re actually interested in buying a new vehicle and a test drive is in the cards, don’t hold off. Head down to the school (4452 256th St., Aldergrove) between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., and give a Ford Fiesta, Explorer, Focus, Fusion, or F-150 a spin. It should go without saying, but I’ll mention that participants must be 18 or older and have a valid driver’s licence. And, there is a limit of one test-drive per household. This could pay major dividends to Langley schools, and more specifically local students, who are growing more and more dependent on external initiatives to fund equipment, programs, and class initiatives. Since the start of Ford’s Drive One 4 UR School and Community programs in 2010, more than 25,000 test-drives at more than 160 events have generated over $460,000 in donations for high schools and organizations in Canada.

Dirt turned for new school Construction on the new school in Yorkson is set to begin this June. by Heather Colpitts

hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

“This is hard,” said four-year-old Chase O’Grady. With a child-size shovel, he was all gung ho about digging at the site of the new Lynn Fripps Elementary school in Yorkson. He and two kindergarten students, Avery Zazula and Kaitlyn O’Grady, from Willoughby Elementary were part of the groundbreaking ceremony for the new school which will be finished by September 2012. While they dug or used their shovels to make happy faces in the dirt, representatives of various levels of government and Fripps’ husband Simon van der Goes, held the ceremony. The new school will provide 450 spaces for Grades 1-7 and 50 for kindergarten. But the Langley School District has already asked for another school in the area to handle the continuing population growth in the Willoughby slope area because the new school will be filled before it’s open. The province is familiar with the request. Education Minister George Abbott said his ministry is working with the Treasury Board and the cabinet to plan for the needs of fast-growing neighbourhoods in Langley and Surrey. “We know that the growth in this

area is not likely to decline,” he told the Langley Advance. Construction is supposed to start this June. The 21-classroom school will cost $15 million and was funded through a $144 million boost in provincial funding for full-day kindergarten. Langley was the only school district to receive that. James Kennedy Elementary in Walnut Grove is also receiving a modular classroom as part of the kindergarten spending. The school district and Langley Township have each contributed land so the school will be part of an overall park and recreation area. Abbott said school/ municipal partnerships are not rate but this one will provide more amenities than the parties could have if working alone. “This is a particularly good example of that partnership,” Abbott said. The school will be one of the Neighbourhood Learning Centres, a concept created by former B.C. premier Gordon Campbell. Abbott said that will mean better integration of the school into the community. He pointed to the school having playing fields and a park which the school and municipality will share. The nearest neighbourhood schools are in Richmond and Chilliwack. Just before the ground-breaking ceremony, Abbott had visited R.C. Garnett Demonstration School, which should have its overcrowding pressure helped by the new Fripps Elementary. Garnett has more than 530 students but was built for up to 300. “We’ll have our work cut our for us to keep up with the population growth,” he said.

Music ambassador coming by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

B

Her Music Says It All...

uilding bridges can sometimes leave a person in the drink, as guitarist Jason Carter found out. The musician has toured the world with a mission to perform music off the beaten path and using music to build bridges between cultures. Carter was held captive by fundamentalists at Islamabad airport just after the U.S. invasion of Afghanistan. The British-born musician will be coming to Langley for the 14th annual Fraser Valley Acoustic Guitar Festival next week. He’s not only teaching in the workshops at the two day festival but also performing on the evening of April 21. “I will be touring with the new 18 string harp guitar and doing some live looping with a new setup I have here, so quite a varied program,” Carter said. He has performed in more than 80 countries, including North Korea, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Pakistan and Uzbekistan. He’s taken the concept of world music and run with it, creating compositions live on stage, thanks to his instruments, as well as some modern technology. “My concerts these days include solo guitar/harp guitar compositions, but I am also looping live using Ableton Live, which opens us a realm of new possibilities of layering parts and using pre recorded loops and samples,” he said. He is now a peace ambassador with the humanitarian group Café Diplo, using the

arts to spread a message of hope. Carter began playing guitar at nine and has more than three decades of musicianship under his belt as well as 15 recordings. Carter has some plans while here in Canada. “Am also intent on meeting Joni Mitchel, to play her my harp guitar version of Both Sides Now, so if anyone knows where she lives, please let me know,” he joked. He’s taking part in a festival created by Kwantlen Polytechnic University guitar and strings director Don Hlus back in 1998 to provide students an opportunity to learn from international masters. The festival evolved to include a public performance by a guest artist.

Presents... People can get tickets to see Carter’s April 21 performance in the Kwantlen auditorium by contacting Ticketweb at 1-888-222-6608 or www.ticketweb.ca. The show starts at 7:30 p.m. Advance tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students or seniors. Add $10 to the prices for tickets purchased at the door.

The harmonious sounds of crooners from yesteryear can be heard as a visual overload with a hundred-plus unique telephones, a selection of switchboards, and an array of tools fill the senses. The 100-year-old building on the corner of 271st Street and 32nd Avenue now houswww.langleyadvance.com es the Alder Grove Heritage Society (AGHS) and Telephone Museum – one of only two such museums in all of Canada. The location of the building is also something unique. “The building, which was formerly on 272nd and Fraser Highway, was slated for demolition but was moved to its current location and restored through the Heritage Society,” explained Erik Simonsen, the AGHS chair. Erected in 1910, the structure was first used by the B.C. Telephone Company in 1917 – whose name still stands on the rooftop sign. It was not until the AGHS reclaimed the building in the early 1990s – for its offices – that the museum came into being. Beginning with a single switchboard and a few telephones, the museum now offers valuable insight into the history of the telephone along with a hands-on look at its bright collection, everything from the Motorola Dynatac 8000X cellular phone, otherwise known as the Zack Morris brick, to long distance calls being made through the museum’s oldest piece, the battery operator assistance. operated 1903 Kellogg.

Arts in brief

Langley bands hit the stages T A

he Brookswood Secondary School gym will be transformed into a 1940s dance hall for the fourth annual Swing Night and Silent Auction. Hosted by the BSS Music Department and Fat City Swing the event April 21 raises funds for the school music program. “All five of our instrumental ensembles will be participating: three concert bands and two jazz bands,” teacher Derrick Turi said. “All of the repetoire will be based on swing and big band music.” To do this, there are ticket sales for the evening ($7 for adults and $5 for students or $10 at the door) and the silent auction. The doors open at 6 p.m. with a swing dance lesson from 7 to 8 p.m., followed by live and DJ music. Food, coffee and swing dance lessons are included with admission. Contact the school for advance tickets: $5 for students and $7 for adults. Tickets will also be available at the door for $10 each. “Our music department is growing nicely and is gaining a reputation for great ensembles and skilled musicians,” Turi explained. “Our music courses include three concert bands, two jazz bands, brass ensemble, percussion cnsemble and music composition. Over the past two years our Brookswood Musical Theatre Company has staged the musicals Oliver and Grease where the live orchestra is made up of our music students. We are shortly on our way to the Fraser Valley International Kiwanis Music Festival for performances. Next year we are looking at going to Disneyland where we will perform concerts and particpate in Disney’s Recording Sessions Workshop.”

band fronted by a Langley man comes to the Dublin Crossing Pub, 18789 Fraser Hwy., for a show April 22 called the B-Monster Garage-Rock-Go-GoParty. A former student of H.D. Stafford Secondary and Langley Secondary, John Lee helms B-Monster and has also been working on a side project called Wailing Wall of Sound. It’s his attempt to achieve a Guinness World Record for having the largest guitar amp in the world. That attempt will be made May 3 at the Roxy in Vancouver. The band hopes to return to Langley with the Wailing Wall of Sound for a summer event. “Now based in Vancouver, I built and designed the wall of speakers in France between May and July 2008,” Lee explained. “The WWOS is a fully operational, 2,000-watt guitar amp with 168 speakers.”

angley’s own Swing Patrol will be playing on April 17 for the White Rock Traditional Jazz Society at the Crescent Beach Legion. “If you haven’t been to the WRTJ’s Sunday afternoon jazz, it’s a great afternoon of live music and dancing,” explained band leader Scott Robertson.

the egg white halves, for a delicious change. My favourite hard-boiled egg recipe is Scotch Eggs. This Scottish recipe is prepared by encasing hardboiled eggs with sausage meat. They are then rolled in a mixture of cracker crumbs and fresh chopped parsley, and baked in the oven. Once cooled, they are sliced into quarters, for a sensational presentation. Hopefully all of this egg inspiration will keep your mind from questioning, “What was cooked first – chicken or the egg?”

Add a splash of freshly chopped parsley over the rice, and you will have transformed the bland grains into something more attractive. The crumbled mix of white and yellow is much more appealing to the eye than two-toned slices of egg. Egg slices are better used along with spinach and cheese, rolled inside the middle of a pork loin, for a stuffed roast that is extraordinary. Egg slices can also be layered in many different casseroles. If one were to search the internet or visit the local library, they would discover a variety of hard-boiled egg recipes. They will include a number of eggand-cheese dips, pickled eggs, and many versions of deviled eggs. For example, try combining the yolk mixture for deviled eggs with smoked salmon before stuffing it back into

he ritual of decorating eggs for Easter is a tradition of long standing in my family. As far back as history can take us, the egg seems to have always been a symbol of continuing life and resurrection. Therefore, it was natural to decorate them and give out as gifts for part of the feasting after the solemn fast of Lent. Although it is now more contemporary to exchange chocolate or candy eggs, many families still carry out the historic practice of using real eggs. However, what is to become of all the excess hard-boiled eggs, other than the habitual egg sandwich? Allow me to give you a few examples that will hopefully inspire some culinary creativity in your kitchen. A quick and simple idea would be to crumble them to garnish salads. This not only adds bright colours to the salad, but is also is a fantastic way to add protein. Crumbled eggs can also be vivid gar-

Music

Always hitting the right note Bruce Henczel is performing at the Langley Community Music School.

B

ruce Henczel spends his days hitting things and the sounds he creates make him much in demand. The solo percussionist is not only a performer but also a teacher, composer, and clinician. The Langley Community Music School is giving the public a chance to hear drumming like they’ve never experienced before at a show today, April 15. The pre-concert coffee and commentary session begins at 10 a.m. with a concert at 11 a.m. in the Rose Gellert Hall. The show will provide people a glimpse into the complexity and subtlety of drumming. “Percussionist-composer Bruce Henczel is sure to delight music fans of all ages with his exciting and diverse program,” said Elizabeth Bergmann, artistic director of concerts at LCMS. “His program features virtuosi pieces ranging from his beautiful

Celtic arrangements for marimba, to the fiery Roma-Gypsy inspired Kajh, hand drum solos from around the world, and some other wonderful surprises.” Bruce Henczel received his Master of Music in percussion performance from the University of British Columbia in 2005, and won the Concerto Competition, the school’s top performance prize. He’s already recorded two solo CDs and has performed with various groups. He was recently the concerto soloist with the West Coast Symphony, the Vancouver Philharmonic, and the Kwantlen University Wind Symphony and Chorus, performing his own compositions. As a chamber musician he has performed with many groups, notably the Vancouver Chinese Music Ensemble, and the Symphony of the West. Tickets for the Langley show are available at the school box office or by calling 604534-2848. They are $15 for adults, $13 for seniors, and $10 for students. The school and its concert hall are at 4899 207 St.

$400,000 donation will allow Trinity Western University to create a chair in specialty religious study. The family of the late Professor John William Wevers gave TWU the money to endow the school’s Septuagint Institute. This is one of the most significant donations TWU has received in recent years and will allow the school to create a chair in Septuagint studies. The Septuagint is the Old Greek translation of the Hebrew Scriptures. It is an important witness to the Jewish understanding of those Scriptures in the three centuries before the time of Jesus, and it is the version that the authors of the New Testament frequently used when quoting from what came to be known as the Old Testament. “Under the leadership of the institute’s director, Dr. Rob Hiebert, the discipline of Septuagint Studies constitutes a spike of excellence for TWU,” said university president Dr. Jonathan S. Raymond. “Endowed chairs make possible the assurance of excellence in research and scholarship for the university. This initiative in particular fits TWU’s mission and commitment “Endowed chairs make posto excellence in bibsible the assurance of excellical scholarship.” TWU’s Septuagint lence in research and scholInstitute, which was arship for the university.” established to proDR. JONATHAN RAYMOND mote research on this early Bible translation, involves the largest group of specialists in this discipline at any academic institution in the country: Rob Hiebert, Ph.D.; Larry Perkins, Ph.D.; Dirk Büchner, Ph.D.; and Canada Research Chair in Dead Sea Scrolls Studies Peter Flint, Ph.D. Dr. Wevers was a pioneer Septuagint scholar at the University of Toronto. The current director of the institute, Dr. Hiebert, was one of this students. The Septuagint Institute, to be renamed The John William Wevers Institute for Septuagint Studies, will serve as the flagship for raising the additional funding needed to establish the John William Wevers Chair in Septuagint Studies. “This gift represents the passing of the torch,” said Hiebert. “Professor Wevers inaugurated a Septuagint Studies program at the University of Toronto in the 1950s, a program that unfortunately no longer exists. This generous donation reinforces the link that was forged between him and TWU and serves to perpetuate his scholarly legacy.” • More online at www.langleyadvance.com, click on “Community”

History

Off they go!

Library journeys through war memorials

Langley’s involvement and the heavy price local families paid during the First World War are part of a talk by local historian Warren Sommer later this month. He’s researching a book on Langley and the war, on the cemeteries and monuments of the Western Front. He will be at the Murrayville Library on April 30 to present an illustrated talk through a 1,400-kilometre journey, said librarian Susan Easton.

Few households in British Columbia escaped the grief that came with news of a family member’s or close friend’s death during the First World War. “The effects of war were particularly distressing in Langley,” Easton noted. “Here, over 370 men served in the Canadian forces. Of these, one in 10 would never return.” Sommer’s presentation will focus on the experiences of the men who enlisted from Langley, and will take listeners to the places where those men fought and ultimately died. Particular attention will be paid to the many monuments that commemorate the Canadian contribution to the

war and to the cemeteries where many of the fallen now lie. The talk begins at 2 p.m. and people are asked to register in advance (604533-0339). The event is free but space is limited. The library is at 221st Street and 48th Avenue. The talk is hosted by Fraser Valley Regional Library in collaboration with the Lest We Forget Project developed by Library and Archives Canada. The public can visit Library and Archives Canada online at www. collectionscanada.gc.ca to access or request copies of the military service files of Canadians who served in the First World War, she noted.

Postcard bus saved

…continued from page A1 It was originally a standard transport bus, apparently operated out of the Camberwell garage in London, Newby said. After the filming of the 1967 Sidney Poitier drama To Sir With Love, the bus was refitted and shipped to Montreal to act as a moving promotional billboard for the film It was rebuilt to drive at up to 50 miles per hour, faster than most London buses, and crossed the country, eventually finding itself parked outside a Vancouver hotel. The bus was sold to a local tourism company, and has found itself on postcards of Victoria, Newby said. It was then sold to a tourism firm in Ketchikan, Alaska, but when it was broken down, it was sent to the scrapyard, then saved to be turned into a stationary boutique in Seattle. “There it sat,” Newby said. “It was within… hours of The boutique plan getting shredded and being never materialized, sent to Japan to make Toyotas.” and the bus turned up on eBay a few years IAN NEWBY ago, where Newby first found it. Along with a mechanic, he got it working and managed to get it to limp across the border to Langley. The engine almost broke off during the trip, but it held together with some impromptu repairs. Newby got two more double-deckers from around B.C., one from a failed museum in Coombs, another from a salvage lot in Surrey. The last one was rescued at the 11th hour. “It was within about seven or eight hours of getting shredded and being sent to Japan to make Toyotas,” Newby said. Parts from the second two vehicles have helped restore the original bus. Newby’s pride and joy is now street legal and ready to drive, and he can drive it on almost any road in Langley. “As long as you remember it’s 14’6” high,” Newby said. That means it can’t go under some of the overpasses on the Trans Canada Highway. “We have to take roads that we’ve surveyed,” Newby said. That should still allow him to get his bus to Fort Langley for this weekend’s St. George’s Day British Motoring Show. The show runs Sunday, April 17 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Fort Langley Community Hall on Glover Road. Along with Newby’s bus, modern and classic British cars of every make and model are expected.

Langley Speedway

Cyclists to speed around historic quarter mile

Bicycle races, show and shines, and a ‘car in a box’ event are a just some of the activities scheduled at the former Langley Speedway site this spring and summer. by Troy Landreville tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

R

acing has returned to the former Langley Speedway site. But before motorsports enthusiasts parade to the track at the southernmost tip of 208th Street, where car racing was king throughout the 1960s, ’70s and the first half of the ’80s, they should hold their horsepower. This weekend’s races are being done on two wheels, not four, and instead of V6 and V8 engines, they will require a lot of “leg work.” The historic quarter mile blacktop in South Langley is hosting Phoenix Velo Training Group bicycle races this Saturday, April 16. Last September Bruce Wenting and his Phoenix Velo club held a barbecue and club race at the track to test it out and see if they could manage a larger event. It was a success. “It’s a neat little venue, it’s a beautiful spot and it’s just a shame that it’s not being used on a regular basis for all sorts of things,” said Wenting. The race is open to anyone interested in trying out bike racing. There are five ability categories as well as a youth-race for riders

Matt Law/Postmedia Network Inc.

Bicycle racing is on tap Saturday at the former Langley Speedway site. between the ages of 12 and 18. “It’s an ideal first taste for bike racing for young people because mom and dad are right there. They can see every pedal stroke, they’re not going out of sight, they’re not going over the hill so there’s a sense of safety,” Wenting said. It will be an omnium-style track event. Riders in each of the five categories will race in three different type of races throughout the day: a “scratch race” where it is a set distance and the first rider across the finish line wins, a “points race” where riders will have to sprint for points during random laps of the race, and an “elimination race” where after every lap the last rider is eliminated from the field. Overall winners will be crowned at the end of the day for the riders who do the best in all three events.

The day promises to be great for spectators, who will be able to see the entire track from the hillside where the grandstand used to sit. Racing begins at 11:30 a.m. and wraps up with awards at 7 p.m. A reminder of the track’s glory days will be present in the infield, where Langley Speedway Historical Society (LSHS) president Murray Jones plans to park his 1977 Camaro Street Stock with an S10 truck body. Jones will have the hot rod on display before the races begin, before trekking to Agassiz for a late morning practice run. “Last year, they had a trial race here with the bikes, and the guys all loved it,” Jones said. “They thought it would be an excellent venue.” Jones said it is easy for the Phoenix group to track the cyclists’ distances because the track, on the

inside groove, is a quarter mile, “so it’s pretty easy to know how far you are going to go for one lap.” The cycling races kick off what will be a busy spring and summer at the old oval. From April 29 to May 1, the site will host the BC Classic & Custom Car Show and D.W. Poppy Show & Shine, followed by a BCIT “car in a box” event on May 18. Jones received a video link on from BCIT about “car in a box” and explained the concept: “It’s… training for shop teachers. So part of their curriculum is to take a box of parts and come up with a design for three types of vehicles.” Speaking about the site, Jones said the number of events it is hosting over the next four months is a testament to its popularity. “I think we’re making a lot of progress, especially considering where we started,” Jones said. While most records list 1965 as the year of official opening, officiated by longtime civic leader Noel Booth, it is generally agreed that 1963 is the year that racing began on the speedway track. Construction began in 1962. Langley Speedway was a hub of activity and a weekend staple for Langley families for nearly a quarter of a century. The track hosted NASCAR Winston West races in 1971, ’72 and ’78, making it one of only three sites in B.C. that has hosted NASCAR races – the others being Western Speedway in Victoria and Westwood in Coquitlam. continued on page A45…

Politicians lauded

14th annual

Langley municipal politicians have been recognized for serving local libraries

L

angley City’s mayor and a Township of Langley councillor received awards recently from the BC Library Trustees Association. At the BCLTA’s annual conference in Victoria on April 9, Mayor Peter Fassbender and Councillor Grant Ward were given the Super Trustee Award. Fassbender also received the Nancy Bennett Merit Award for services to provincial libraries at the regional and provincial levels. Fassbender is currently the chair of the Fraser Valley Regional Library’s board, and Ward served on the board from 2002 to this year. Ward was commended for his frequent attendance at library events as well as his respected board participation and his unwavering commitment to libraries as jewels of the community. BCLTA paid special tribute to Fassbender who, when B.C.’s libraries faced potential provincial funding cuts, lent his expertise to develop effective strategies that mitigated the crisis, and then exerted his influence to enhance public libraries’ relations with the provincial government. “When a strong voice was needed to ensure the provincial government did not lose sight of the importance of the BC library system, Peter’s abilities could not be surpassed,” said Fraser Valley Regional District Director Bill Dickey. Langley is served by the Fraser Valley Regional Library, with a main local branch in Langley City and smaller branches in almost every major Township community, from Walnut Grove to Aldergrove. The same library system serves readers as far away as Boston Bar.

Pick raspberries for quality and ease

NURSERIES LARGEST & BEST SELECTION OF ANNUALS/ VEGETABLES IN THE VALLEY

O

Dave Kirk, Coquitlam ne of the best raspberries for quality of berries and ease of maintenance is Tulameen. If you cut down all the canes to the ground when fruiting dwindles in fall, you’ll have a late-summer and fall harvest. If you cut only the old canes and let the new ones alone, Tulameen will produce fruit in June and give you a small fall harvest, too. Good, large berries can be harvested in June from the Qualicum, Malahat, and Chilcotin varieties. They need to have the old, fruited canes pruned out to leave space for the new canes which will provide next June’s crop It’s important to buy and plant raspberries in early spring. Nurseries get in good selections of canes in March or April, based on how many they expect to sell. By May, most popular kinds may be sold out.

Dear Anne,

“Recently, my family and I moved here from Alaska. I am planting a new garden area and wanted to put some glads in it. When would be a good time to plant them?”

Heather Saloka, Chilliwack ’d say the beginning of May should be fairly safe this year. Planting of summer bulbs always depends on the kind of spring we’re having, and this year the temperatures

Dear Anne,

“Could you tell me about ‘Joe Pyweed’? Would it grow nice and tall? I’d like to put something against my back fence for privacy. How invasive is it?”

Pat Pryce, Maple Ridge ome kinds of ‘Joe Pyweed’ (Eupatorium) can get weedy, especially in moist soil. But many people grow and love them because the flowers last so long, and because many kinds are a good screen and they’re also a great nectar source for bees of all kinds. Eupatoriums can fit into a garden well, but you should check on them in spring, and if the clump is getting too big, just cut around it with a sharp spade and remove the excess. Eupatorium can be div-

“The winter before last we lost some raspberry canes that had been planted 15-20 years ago. Regrowth of canes was poor, and the berry harvest last summer was very sparse. I suspect it’s time to plant some new stock. “Can you suggest some varieties and the best time to buy and plant them? Could you give some fertilizing recommendations?”

Viral infections often cause raspberries to go downhill after years in the same spot. If possible, it would be best to plant in an area that’s never had raspberries in it. The new bed should be enriched with compost, Sea Soil, or well-rotted manure, and as you plant the raspberries, spread out their roots into the soil. After watering well, top the soil with a mulch that will hold in moisture through the summer. That could include compost, straw or grass clippings. Raspberries produce huge crops if they’re given moist, rich soil.

Dear Anne,

have been cooler than usual. But planting can be adjusted for a warm garden microclimate. For instance, if you’ll be putting your gladiolas in close to the south or west side of your house, where sun-warmed walls keep night temperatures a bit higher, you could probably plant them a week or so earlier.

Warriors 2-0 to kick off season by Paul Waddel

into Sunday’s game at Aldergrove Arena, where the Warriors defeated the Vipers 3-1. The Vipers’ Nick Hall had some opportunities to score early, but wasn’t able to capitalize. The Warriors opened the scoring midway through the contest on a point shot from Derek Gulka that slipped past the Vipers’ netminder. A few minutes later, the

There are 12 teams in the VBHA’s Major Division this year, playing 16 regular season games, along with five playoff contests. The winner of the playoffs will move on to the provincials, which take place in Langley this year.

Minor soccer

Metro girls score major upset over Surdel Storm The underdog Langley U14 metro girls soccer team took out the Surdel Storm in Coastal Cup play last Sunday in Delta. The eighth-place Langley squad held on for a 1-0 win to eliminate the first-place Surdel team, and advance to semifinals of the Coastal Cup. The first half saw the Langley team battle it out through rain and wind, and defend successfully. At halftime, the teams were locked in a scoreless draw. Both teams came out strong after the break, with Surdel pressuring Langley’s goalkeeper with numerous shots.

Then the wind picked up, and it was in Langley’s favour. A great ball by forward Meha Bilkhu on a corner kick was skillfully headed in by midfielder Cassie Stea for the match’s only goal. Langley coach Steve Watts has been working on crosses and headers for some time, and it paid off when it mattered. With the Surdel goalkeeper unable to punt the ball very far out of her zone due to high winds, the Storm had to change their game plan to even the score. Langley’s Chandpreet Sandhu shut down opposing midfielders and forwards with numerous slide

tackles and hard defending, preventing Surdel from capitalizing on their runs down the sideline and cross attempts. With the final minutes ticking away, a frantic Storm team was unable to tie the contest. ••• The Langley U14 metro girls struggled to capitalize throughout the season and won only five of 20 games. Most games were very close with only a one- or two-goal spread. Despite the fact that Langley’s ’keeper, Teddi Heard, was recently diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, the coach and the girls persevered.

The Langley U14 metro girls soccer team has moved on to the Coastal Cup semifinals after upsetting first place Surdel 1-0 Sunday.

Mustangs quell Storm in quarter-final 39:;64 87<;51<2

$('"! %&##

The Langley Mustangs began their defence of their Coastal A Cup title last weekend with a 2-1 quarter-final victory over the Semiahmoo Storm. The close score was not an indicator of the play, as the local U18 metro girls soccer team dominated territorially and was just unlucky not to score more often. The first half was wide open with the Mustangs pressing early. However, they were burned by a quick Semiahmoo counter-attack in the fifth minute. A low cross was deflected by a Storm forward off the goalpost, giving Mustangs’ goalkeeper Nimmie Banipal no chance. The Mustangs equalized five minutes later with an Alex Stasiuk strike from the top of the box, following an impressive build up.

time the ball was collected by Keenya Pierre, who coolly sent it into the back of the empty net. The Mustangs comfortably controlled the game the rest of the way and were fully deserving of the result. ••• Langley FC will next meet arch rivals Coquitlam Metro Ford Sunday.

The second half was much more defensive and it began to look like the Mustangs were going to rue the missed chances. However, they took the lead for good in the 75th minute, following a goal mouth scramble after a corner kick. A low shot was directed off the Semiahmoo goalpost yet again, but this

The Mustangs had numerous opportunities to take the lead in the first half but were thwarted by the woodwork three times, including a rocket of a shot by Dayle Jeras from 25 yards out that rattled the crossbar. They were even awarded a penalty kick late in the half, but the attempt missed the net.

Alumni tourney scores big

Last weekend’s charity event at D.W. Poppy Secondary was like a giant reunion on the hard court. by Troy Landreville sports@langleyadvance.com

The first annual Greg Leino Alumni Classic Tournament at D.W. Poppy Secondary was a slam dunk success. The April 9-10 tourney, in honour of former teacher and longtime D.W. Poppy Secondary boys basketball coach Greg Leino, featured eight teams of players who graduated from the school from 1985 to 2010. In the championship game, the 1994/95 alumni team edged the grads of 1999 to 2001 by a tight 68-66 score.

Jon Fast won MVP of the championship game while Neil McKinlay earned tourney MVP honours. Leino – who retired in 2009 after 34 years of teaching and coaching basketball teams at D.W. Poppy – refereed a number of the games. “He [Leino] got more court time than anyone else. He reffed six games on Saturday and all three games Sunday,” tournament organizer Brian Dougherty said. The bleachers were generally full of alumni, parents, and others from the local basketball community, D.W. Poppy alumnus Geoff Henshaw reported. The tournament generated close to $2,000 for the Greg Leino scholarship. The scholarship is awarded to the D.W. Poppy grad who best exemplifies the values of excel-

Langley advances to semifinals …continued from page A39 Coming into Sunday’s game, the outlook was grim: the Storm had previously beaten Langley by scores of 8-2 and 3-0. Surdel was loaded with numerous provincial-level players, while Langley included girls who made the team through tryouts. The Langley team consists of Meha Bilkhu, Chelsey Bone, Michaela De Melo, Danielle

Engel, Teddi Heard, Livia Killian, Sydney Lamborn, Morgan Ledbrook, Casie Lundquist, Chantal MacLean, Michelle Mehner, Callum Pilgrim, Chandpreet Sandhu, Isabel Scheier, Cassie Stea, and Laura Stevens.

lence in athletics, academics and community. “Tournaments as well organized and attended as this don’t just happen by themselves,” Henshaw said. “Brian Dougherty did a fantastic job of not only generating the idea but ensuring that this was as well run as any basketball tournament we ever competed in, in high school. Given the enthusiasm and feedback it is clear that this will become a popular annual event.” Dougherty played for the winning 1994/95 team and described the tournament as an “awesome experience.” “Being the third oldest team there and showing some of these young guys how to play basketball was awesome,” he said. “I was a little surprised how everyone was so appreciative about putting the tourney together. It was a well-run machine, because there were so many willing hands to make it easy to organize.” Dougherty sees the tournament growing in the coming years, now that it’s a known entity. “One of our challenges was getting a hold of the guys last minute,” Dougherty said. “Al Church is a big name from the 1980s and I got a hold of him the night before [the start of the tournament]. He had no hesitation to come out and support it, and play.”

April 30 - May 1, 2011

Hellenic Community Centre, 4500 Arbutus, Vancouver

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Your energy, charisma and luck remain high. But you face many nudges to change – your ethics, life philosophy, legal approach, culture, your raison d’etre; to change your goals and hopes, friends and entire connection to mankind, to change your career and ambitions, even your close relations – these urges race through your days and your being. Ignoring or fighting them can make you say, “I’m unlucky!” If you embrace them, you’ll ride an exhilarating breeze of providence. Sunday/Monday show your limits; midweek, your immense horizons. The month ahead accents earnings, spending. Taurus April 20-May 20: Start nothing new before April 23. Recent weariness and solitude are due to lift partially from Wednesday through late May, as your energy and charisma rise. Then by June a whole year of luck and expansion will begin! Meantime, proceed carefully Sunday (work, health) and Monday (relationships) – you might suffer a loss of enthusiasm about something essential, or meet a legal roadblock. Wait until Tuesday, when new ideas and renewed affection make dealings, love and work, brighter and better. Lucky intimate and financial opportunities exist Wednesday/Thursday. Sweet wisdom late week. Gemini May 21-June 20: Start nothing new before April 23.An exhilarating month of smiles, hopes, social openings, flirtations and entertainment meets an obstacle Sunday/Monday – another’s reluctance to involve deeply with you is a reflection of your own hidden reluctance. Romance in 2011 and 12 demands deep commitment and sacrifice, or forget it. Wednesday/Thursday you have a (big!) chance to commit, sign, relocate, marry. But Wednesday also starts a month of quietude, retreat and weariness. If you recently launched big things, now handle the consequent obligations. A life wish will soon come true!

Cancer June 21-July 22: Start nothing new before Friday. But do push forward with ongoing or past projects, especially in career, prestige and business zones, and in relations with bosses, parents, VIPs and authorities. Your luck in these areas continues brightly to early June. Don’t waste this time! From Wednesday onward, your popularity and optimism rise, and social networking will increase the results of your ambitious efforts. A wish might come true in the weeks ahead. Romance lures but disappoints Monday/Tuesday. Tackle chores midweek. Relationships excite Friday, but present dilemmas Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Before April 23, stick with ongoing projects, people, or re-start ventures, relationships from the past. You’ll feel sluggish Monday/Tuesday – rest, realize a recent travel, legal, love or cultural “push” is subsiding briefly. New trends in these areas arise late April to early June, and will be as lucky as those of the last three months. Wednesday begins a month of ambition, status-seeking, and relations with VIPs, authorities, bosses and parents. All’s smooth here, but do work hard, as your worth, talents, will be “examined.” Romance, creative urges soar midweek! To work, Friday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Start nothing new before April 23. Sunday/Monday might deal a minor blow to your sexual, financial or “new lifestyle” projects. If you’ve already accomplished much in one of these areas the last several months, early week merely brings doubts. But if you’ve spent past weeks building up to a magnificent act, and haven’t performed that act (sexual, financial or lifestyle) yet, this week could disappoint. Whatever happens, you still have seven weeks of huge luck in these arenas. All could be solved by mid-week! If not, wait until after the 23rd, then launch your efforts anew.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Avoid new starts before April 23. Significant events might have occurred with an “ex” during the last few weeks, yet if this person pursues you now (early week) you might softly reject him/her, mostly due to doubts about your passion, or about the long-range security of the relationship. (This can happen in business, also, e.g., in contract negotiations.) Don’t despair – solutions occur Tuesday to Thursday. Luck still swells relationships, relocation and agreements to June. Wednesday begins a month of significant sexual and financial choices, lifestyle changes. Home, late week. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: A long, wearying month of work and health concerns ends now, but “significant work” lasts until early June. Don’t weep – this period offers substantial monetary compensation. If you’re handling two people’s jobs, ask for at least one and a half people’s pay – but do it Wednesday/ Thursday, or before the work ends (early June). Work, health, machinery run into a barrier Sunday/Monday. Your energy is high Monday, so try to leap over this hindrance. If you can’t, make an adjustment Tuesday (might involve sweet-talking a sweet person) and go on. Start no new projects before April 23. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Romance, a creative project or dealings with children hit a snag early week. Look at your long-term future – this will tell you how you should react. That hindrance might be a hidden blessing. You still have seven weeks of splendid luck in romance, speculation, games/ sports, kids, creativity, pleasure, beauty – and a major prize might await, especially if you’re seeking love! (Remember, pursue noting, no one new before April 23.) Sunday’s optimistic, joyous. Your energy fades Monday/Tuesday, but returns, with clout, charisma and luck, Wednesday/Thursday. Work looms – soon.

Could you use $30k or even $300k? If you own a home, we can help. Your credit/age/income is not an issue. Independent lenders since 1969.

Apr. 17 - April 23 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: You might have sewn up a great security, real estate or business territory deal (or severance package) during the last few months, Cap. If not, you have seven weeks still to accomplish this. Don’t ignore it – it will be one of the significant turning points of your life. Plan, delegate rather than “slave.” Your efforts might hit a temporary snag Sunday/Monday; the core of this obstacle is your own desire to gain status. The true gains now will be made at the opposite extreme: be humble, forget fighting to be top of the heap. Start nothing new before April 23. Soon, romance! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: An active, talkative, friendly, travel-filled period partly ends Wednesday (though it lingers luckily in many ways to early June). A legal, educational, cultural, travel or other obligation or restriction arises Sunday/Monday. There’s a message here: the long is stronger than the short. The month ahead features land, security, home, territory, family, gardening, soul and nutrition. In June, a year of huge luck in these zones begins, so use late April and May to investigate, plan, to get ready. But don’t jump (e.g., buy a home) before June 4! Joy and friends come, midweek! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: A lucky financial month is about to end, although your money luck will continue to a large degree until early June. The weeks just past emphasized money connected to work and industry; the seven weeks ahead emphasize money connected to career, ambition and prestige. This “switch” is partly signaled by an obstacle or sobering event Sunday/Monday, in which your future, or your social connections, prove stronger than your pure monetary desires. (Going forward, it’s not what you did, but who you will know.) Your career is beautifully favored Wednesday/Thursday – charge ahead! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
