When Langley Township council asked for input on the future of the intersection of 200th Street and Zero Avenue, it got a whole mess of other issues dumped on its plate. Several local equestrians complained that the horse trail surrounding much of the High Point housing development at the foot of 200th Street has an unsafe road crossing. Robin Austin was one of several riders who questioned the safety of the crossing at the foot of the steep hill that rises up to the border and Zero Ave. Above it, the road curves sharply to the left. Austin said the crossing was poorly designed. “Traffic and speed do not mix with horses and people,” she said. Along with other riders, she said it can be difficult to see cars coming down the hill.

Several people said they have to stop, listen intently, and then cross. But even then, there are close calls, as cars hit high speeds down the steep incline. Horses, the riders explained, can’t simply accelerate, especially on asphalt, to get away from a speeding car. Haidee Landry, vice-president of the Canadian Quarter Horse Association, suggested moving the crossing north, where it’s easier to see traffic. Guntram Zell suggested installing a signalized horse crossing, with a button at the height of a mounted rider, that would warn drivers of horses in the intersection. Residents of High Point and surrounding properties also told council that street racing has become a problem. Councillor Kim Richter said this was the first time anyone mentioned that issue to council. Several residents also said they’ve had problems with drug use in the area. Apparently, the deadend street and rural location is attracting young people looking for a quiet spot.

Curfew offenders facing charges

The Langley RCMP did a curfew check sweep at the end of April, and a number of people could be facing charges. During a check run on April 29, 35 local residents were checked, and eight were not at home during court-ordered hours, said

Cpl. Holly Marks of the Langley RCMP. Those out and about when officers came knocking may now face criminal charges, which in some cases could return them to jail. There are dozens of people in Langley who are bound by court orders, either while awaiting trial or after being convicted and released. They are usually bound to a curfew, told to be in their homes after a certain time, unless at work. Working with Langley

Probation, the RCMP have begun conducting regular sweeps, four times a year, to check up on those under curfews. The checks are part of the Safe Homes Safe Communities program, one of the local RCMP’s strategic priorities. Some of those being checked are also on the list of prolific offenders maintained by the detachment. Prolific offenders are responsible for a disproportionate number of crimes and usually have very lengthy criminal records, often involving thefts and drugs.

Robberies within Langley City are up 88 per cent in the first four months of 2011 compared to last year. Business break-ins are up, too, by 10 per cent. In contrast, most other crime statistics have improved. Residential break-ins are down 23 per cent, and thefts from vehicles are down 37 per cent. Auto theft has decreased by 88 per cent, drug offence statistics have dropped 27 per cent, and fraud is down by 23 per cent. Langley RCMP Supt. Derek Cooke reviewed quarterly crime statistics for City council Monday. Cooke explained that some policing costs are fixed – attending serious crashes and major crimes, for instance – while others can be tailored to deal with the patterns and trends of crime as they evolve in the community. Langley’s detachment has been emphasizing several specific issues, including drug crimes, by taking down several grow ops and arresting at least 30 drug traffickers. As well, local RCMP are working to reduce gang activity, and targeting young people who are at risk of joining gangs. “We’re looking at creating an anti-gang program for the schools,” Cooke said. RCMP are also trying to reduce property crime by targeting prolific offenders, improving road safety, and aiming to increase the number of drunk drivers they take off the road. The goals come on the heels of the successful Prolific Offender Program that the detachment started last fall. As an example of the program’s impact, Cooke noted that one of the targeted offenders had 48 “negative contacts” in the last half 2010, but since coming under closer watch by RCMP implementing the program, he has had only six negative contacts. “The majority of people on our prolific offenders list have mental health or addiction issues,” he added.

Langley Township wants the public to better appreciate the agriculture that’s around them. by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Should young people get subsidies if they are willing to go into farming? Or maybe a tax break on agricultural land? How to sustain the local agricultural industry was the topic of the Langley Township annual farm tour. Farming has evolved into an advanced industry and a vital business that generates $257 million in revenue per year in the Township of Langley, contributing the equivalent of more than 1,790 full-time jobs.

South Langley

200th Street case not open or shut

Council will have to decide if the barricades at 200th Street and Zero Avenue will stay or go.

Matthew Claxton Langley Advance

South Langley is divided over connecting 200th to Zero Avenue. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Opinions over opening a new intersection at 200th Street and Zero Avenue seem to be based on local geography. Residents who live on roads like the southern end of 208th Street and parts of 4th Avenue told Langley Township coun-

cil at a public hearing on Monday night that they want to see the road opened. They live on narrow, rural roads with steep slopes, and they’re tired of commuters using their streets to get to Zero Avenue. Meanwhile, those living in the High Point development on 200th Street itself, or on parts of Zero, say opening the intersection would send a flood of extra traffic their way. On the side of opening the road were those like

Wendy Billingsly. “208th [Street] is not safe the way it is, with the extra traffic because 200th is blocked,” she told the council. Billingsly lives on 208th Street, and said the gullies on her steep street make it hard to see oncoming cars. She is also worried about how 200th Street will work as a designated disaster and evacuation route if it’s blocked by a gate. Leida Wong is an equestrian who also lives on 208th Street and wants to see 200th Street opened. She noted that 200th Street is much wider than narrow, rural 208th Street. The traffic should be put on the road that was designed and built to be a major connector, she said. When it comes to emergency response, Dan Mooney, a Township on-call firefighter, said that not every emergency vehicle would be able to get through a gate at the intersection. Fire crews have keys for such gates, but police and ambulances typically don’t, he noted. That could slow response to police- or ambulance-only calls. He also said that adding a new, direct route would reduce travel times and distances, reducing greenhouse gases emitted by cars. On the no side were residents worried about 200th Street turning into a freeway if it’s opened.

Currently, they pointed out, the nearest direct north-south routes for drivers headed for Zero are at 184th Street in Surrey and 216th Street in Langley. It is possible to get there via 208th Street, but that involves making a number of turns to get around Campbell Valley Regional Park. Longtime Zero Avenue resident Trudy Handel said she and her neighbours are no stranger to safety issues. She recalls when drivers were clocked heading down Zero Avenue at 180 km/h by the RCMP. Since speed-tables were introduced at intersections, it’s cut the speed down a bit, but a recent police crackdown still found plenty of speeders exceeding 100 km/h, on a 50 km/h road. “Zero Avenue is already over capacity for a rural road,” she said. Adding another intersection would just dump more traffic onto it, she said. Haidee Landry, another South Langley resident, said she also wants to see the intersection stay closed. It will turn 200th Street’s south mile into a highway for people looking for a shortcut, she said. “Why would we want to open up an aterial route that would be unsafe?” she said.

Avery Adams, 14 months, looked skyward just as she was about to bite into a fork-full of pancakes, thanks to a helping hand from her dad James Saturday morning outside the Willoughby Save-On-Foods. The new South Fraser chapter of the Canadian Mental Health Association hosted a free pancake breakfast for Canadian Mental Health Week, which ran May 2-8. The Langley Elks provided the cooks and the equipment to help make the breakfast possible, and local singer Joe Given performed during the event.

Residents find safety in closed road Lindsay Curtis said he’s driven on both 184th Street and 216th Street, and has seen how fast traffic is there. The High Point resident said he doesn’t want to see that happen to 200th Street. With all the horses crossing the road, he said, it would then be a matter of not “if” an accident involving a rider would happen, but “when”. The question of whether to keep the road open or closed was raised when residents of High Point signed a petition to

keep it closed. The road has never been open in the past, as 200th dead-ended in a gravel pit. However, opening the new intersection was a promised component of the High Point project. Currently, the road is closed while homes are still being built in High Point. Township planner Ramin Seifi noted that despite construction at High Point, traffic in the area has actually gone down about 10 per cent over the past six years, possibly due to the closure of South Carvolth Elementary.

IMPROVING INDEPENDENCE AND QUALITY OF LIFE FOR SENIORS “Our focus is to help older adults with complex health issues to maintain their independence as long as possible within the community.” -Dr. Sanjeev Vohra, Geriatrician, Specialized Seniors Clinic, Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre

PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE Learn more about the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre by joining us at our public open house Monday, May 30 from 3pm – 7pm. For more information, learn a fact a day and to view our video about the new Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre go to www.fraserhealth.ca.

With the rise of the older adult population it has become a priority for seniors to maintain function and independence for as long as possible. “Older Adults who have multiple health concerns are not best served with the routine medical care that’s provided through ERs and walk-in clinics,” explained Dr. Sanjeev Vohra, one of the geriatricians in the new Specialized Seniors Clinic at the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre. “They require special assessment, care and ongoing support.” The Specialized Seniors Clinic offers older adults and their families assistance with management of their health in order to optimize quality of life, improve self management of chronic conditions, and maintain independence. Working with primary care providers and community services the Seniors Clinic provides assessment, diagnosis, treatment, management, care planning and timely follow up. Care is provided by an interdisciplinary team utilizing evidence based practice and geriatric expertise of professionals and community groups.

Home is best “Our focus is to work collaboratively with primary care physicians to help older adults with complex health issues maintain their independence as long as possible in the community,” Dr. Vohra said. “The goal is always quality of life while keeping them safe, so whatever that transition requires over a period of time, that’s what we guide them through.” Surrey couple Inez and Don, both in their late 90s, are still living independently at home four years after the clinic supported them through Inez’s difficulties with depression and sleeping. The Seniors Clinic staff recognized that Inez was being over-medicated, and after three months in a care facility by adjusting her medications she was able to return home. With the assistance of visits from a home care nurse and their daughter, along with occasional checkups, the couple can keep doing what makes them happy.

“It means a lot to us to be independent,” said Inez, who is 99. “ We feel very fortunate to be using the clinic. They’re very caring and nice people.” Expanding services to meet a growing need The clinic’s new location (relocating from the Gateway Scotia Bank Tower in Surrey) will expand their holistic approach to include coordination with other on-site services (such as chronic disease and pain clinics), primary care providers, referrals to other Fraser Health programs such as Home Health, and a focus on family education and support. This patient-centred, integrated approach is critical as health care providers face what is referred to as “the rising tide of the silver tsunami,” Dr. Vohra noted. “We’re seeing increasing incidence of all problems related to seniors, including dementia, which is a huge and growing problem.” Talk to your family physician if you or a family member could benefit from the Specialized Seniors Clinic. To contact the clinic directly call 604 -953-4919; after June 6 call 604-582-4582.

Bad drivers root of street conflict In a year or two, 200th Street and Zero Avenue may, or may not, be an open intersection. On Monday, residents of the area made the case pro and con. Safety was on the minds of both sides. Should the route be opened to accommodate emergency vehicles? Or will it simply draw a flood of too-fast commuters who will cause more accidents. It’s those commuters who are the cause of much of the concern among South Langley residents. Those on 208th Street and 4th Avenue want 200th opened to take the pressure off of their narrow roads. Those on 200th Street rightly fear a flood of commuters. Everyone on Zero Avenue – and the Langley RCMP – are already familiar with the speeding lunatics who make what should be quiet, rural roads into hazardous racetracks. All these drivers are trying to get to or from Zero Avenue, and from there to either Abbotsford or South Surrey. Of course, they should be on 16th Avenue, with its higher speed limit and better road surface. But it’s full of trucks and drivers who play by the rules. In other communities, these drivers, who speed through residential areas, school zones, and past parks, are known as rat runners. Regardless of what the Township decides about one intersection, this has been a good reminder that we probably need some more rat traps in South Langley. The attack has to be two-pronged. We need traffic calming – parts of 208th in particular seem to need help – and enforcement. Neither will eliminate the problem. But hopefully they’ll prevent fatalities caused by careless, selfish drivers who refuse to slow down. – M.C.

Health care

Dear Editor, Recently, I was advised on a Wednesday to attend Vancouver General Hospital (VGH) for emergency surgery only available the next Tuesday. Since I am disabled, transport is an issue. A friend was good enough to take the surgery date off work so he could drive me. I was then notified on the Friday that I had to appear at VGH at 7 a.m. on the Monday before the surgery. I advised VGH I would do without the procedure. They telephoned a few minutes later to say that they would look after a bus for transport. I was delighted.

Last week, I received the bill for it: $150. I was not happy. Christy Clark has promised to provide medications free of charge to cigarette smokers unable or unwilling to quit. Yet the province will not pay for the expensive medication needed by a young man to survive his rare disease, and it won’t pay for (or recognize) the liberation (CCSVI) treatment for persons with multiple sclerosis. I’d say our health care system and its priorities need a-fixin’. Gord Weitzel, Langley [Note: A fuller version of this letter is online at www.langleyadvance.com.]

Federal election 2011

Bullying centre of PM’s campaign

Dear Editor, Throughout the election campaign, Coach Harper sported a hockey jacket and gave interviews in hockey arenas, and his “team” has won the Stanley Cup. He has made Canadian politics a blood sport, further dividing our nation into “us” versus “them.”

Your report of the local campaign described the victory at Mark Warawa’s headquarters thus: “Youngsters held up letters spelling out the Conservative Party’s victory… To the cheers of Warawa’s supporters, his campaign manager Tanya Tait said she wore red shoes

Economics

Gas prices past understanding

Dear Editor, I would like to know why it is that we are still paying more than $1.35 a litre for gasoline when the cost for a barrel has been bouncing between $98 and $100 a barrel. I find it interesting that, when the cost of a barrel of oil goes up, all the gas stations pump up the price within hours or even minutes of the change, even if the oil in the tank was purchased at a lower price, but when the cost of a barrel of oil drops, as it has in the past weeks by almost $15 a barrel, we have not seen a reciprocal drop in the price at the pump. Debbie Atkinson, Langley

to signify ‘kicking some Liberal butt.’” If she said it in front of the children, she has taught them that bullying statements are acceptable. Why do we fund antibullying courses in our schools, when our prime minister and his supporters demonstrate the bully syndrome at every turn? Are our politics now to endure a hockey game mentality, as in, “Let’s kick some butt?” Coach Harper is out to destroy, not to build up. There is no honour in character assassination, demonization of your opponent, smear campaigns, attack ads, and bullying. Clearly we must travel further down the road of anti-democracy to realize what we have lost. Keep your helmet on. Sharon Stephenson, Langley

Langley Township

Everyone ganging up on mayor

Dear Editor, If Jack Froese wants to make a serious attempt at seeking the Township mayor’s office, he needs to go back and do his homework. Supporting Councillor Bateman with his accusations of Mayor Rick Green being a passenger indicates Jack has no knowledge of what has gone on in council meetings over the past two and a half years. From the first meeting following the 2008 election, Mayor Green has been the hardest worker on council. Bateman and company have fought Green’s every attempt at thinking outside the box to reduce tax increases. Even Kim Richter has now joined in, by proposing a motion to basically turn the mayor’s office into just another councillor position. Richter, with the unanimous support of all councillors, has sent a motion to Township lawyers to investigate eliminating the mayor’s post of all mayoral duties and responsibilities, basically turning the mayor into a ninth councillor. Attendees at that meeting were left with the perception that, even if Green needed more paper for his office printer, he needed a council vote of approval.

of users: kids, adults, dogs, horses, and wild animals that live in the park. They can coexist, but there has to be respect for one another. An unleashed dog in the park can be a danger to itself and others. I leash my dog in the park. We live close by, and understand the need for the leash law there. I don’t want him chasing after people, deer, mink, bears, coyotes, racoons, birds, or horses on a narrow trail. I don’t want him chasing the neighbours’ farm animals. It’s dangerous. The me-first attitude from people who demand the park be turned over to them at the expense of others makes me shake my head. Are they really that selfish? The park rangers do a great job. They deserve kudos for what they do, looking after the park for the benefit of all. Name withheld, Langley [Note: A fuller version of this letter is online at www. langleyadvance.com.]

maybe this is something that can give them a shot in the arm and lift them up,” Dauncey previously told the Langley Advance, once again extending a plea to anyone interested in helping. Friday is effectively day one of the project, with hundreds of volunteers committing over a 10-day span to repair and upgrade the dilapidated 1970s two-storey structure. The kitchen, bath, floors, deck, windows, insulation, roofing, heating system, landscaping, and other aspects of the home are all under consideration in what will be one of the most intense projects in the AOK home repair’s seven-year history. Dauncey said he’s “thrilled” by the outpouring of community support for this year’s project. “It seems as though more businesses than ever are getting involved in Extreme Home Repair. New to our project is Pro Garage, which is donating $6,000 worth of flooring material. The Brick is on board again with thousands worth of furniture,” the pastor explained. “Ralph at R.E. MacDonald Stoves & Stones was exceptional in offering anything we needed. We’ve even gone Statesside this year and Lynden Doors is supplying all of our door needs.”

Last year, more than 80 company sponsors plus many private donors came through. “This year, we may just surpass that. Bruce at Diamond Bar Equipment has really gotten excited about the project as well. He has offered the use of any landscape equipment free of charge and feels more companies need to get on board.” Although they’ve had great success in securing a lot of donations, heading into the project there are still a few more items needed. The list includes 10 6X6X10 pressure treated posts, door knobs and deadbolts, duct cleaning service, a medicine cabinet, bathroom hardware, drapes, a 40-inch flat screen TV, a barbecue, linens, metal balusters (spindles), a computer desk/ organizational centre, and exercise equipment. Anyone interested in donating products, services, or time to the project can also email: pastordauncey@ gmail.com, or call the church at 604856-5830, ext. 104. “Let’s work together to help a worthy family in our local community,” Dauncey said. • Stay tuned to the Langley Advance for updates on this project, and the May 23 reveal.

by Roxanne Hooper Volunteers carpenters and landscapers, drywallers and plumbers are converging on an Aldergrove home starting today (Thursday) – a day ahead of schedule – to get a jump on demolition for the largest ever home makeover by the Aldergrove Seventh-Day Adventist Church. And this annual endeavour, dubbed Extreme Home Repair, is catching more than just local attention. Force Four Entertainment, a production company hunting for a community to be the focus of a new reality television show, will be in Aldergrove filming some of the first day on this makeover. The Acts of Kindness (AOK) team from the church picked the Grochowski’s Aldergrove home for this year’s makeover earlier this spring. Project leader Pastor Mike Dauncey noted the 267A Street home and grounds had fallen into significant disrepair since the family lost their son three years ago. Eighteen-year-old David Grochowski was killed in a car accident in October 2007. The loss devastated his father Walt, mother Terry, and his five siblings – four of whom still live at home. And even though they were in the midst of home renovations at the time of David’s death, little has been done on that project or many others since. “Honestly, their home is in disrepair... It needs some help,” one project volunteer, Lorne Brownmiller, explained. “They’ve had a huge loss, and

There’s a lot on the books for the voice of Langley businesses during the coming weeks. The Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce has invited a few people to address the ins and outs of the HST during the monthly dinner meeting next Tuesday at Coast Hotel and Convention Centre. That should prove interesting. Shawna Hansen, senior manager of Indirect Tax Services Group at PwC LLP, along with accountant Brian Moul manager of commodity tax with BC Hydro & Power Authority, will discuss the HST. “HST is a very important issue for the business community and our guest presenters will be providing the pros and cons of the tax to assist us in making an informed choice in the upcoming referendum,” said chamber president Milt Kruger.

In fact, after only a month since the single was released, the track has shot up the music charts and has been in the #1 most added song to country radio. Promoters say veins of a more mainstream singer-songwriter run through the record, bridging the gap from country to pop. Langleyites are being asked to judge that transformation during Rankin’s stopover here. Rankin will be performing at the Cascades Casino Summit Theatre, 20393 Fraser Hwy., on Tuesday, May 24. Tickets are $25 and available in advance from casino guest services or at www.ticketweb.ca. Doors open at 7 p.m., with the show starting at 7:30 p.m. In addition to Rankin, the show will be opened by Kylee Epp, who spent much of her singing career so far as backup vocalist and acoustic guitar player for recording artist Jessie Farrell. She’s also toured with many other country performers such as Brooks & Dunn, Alan Jackson, Sugarland, Aaron Pritchett, Johnny Reid, Emerson Drive, Faith Hill and Tim Mcgraw. She just recently came off the road from a tour with Toby Keith.

angley’s own Pacific Rim String Quartet will wrap up the Concerts Cafe Classico season on Friday. Langley Community Music School is ending the season with an interpretation of the works of one of Russia’s most influential and prominent composers of the 20th century, explained the school’s artistic director Elizabeth Bergmann. “LCMS resident ensemble the Pacific Rim String Quartet will end the season with some wonderful masterworks by Russian composer Dmitri Shostakovich,” she said. “The group will interpret his Quartet No. 7, which he wrote in memory of his wife, and the best known eighth quartet, which is an intimate and haunting work reflective of his personal and professional struggles living within the Soviet regime. The pieces that will be performed are representative of the tragic quality of many of his compositions.” Pre-concert coffee and commentary by Bergmann begins at 10 a.m., followed by the concert. Tickets and information from the school, at 604-534-2848.

anadian music icon Jimmy Rankin, of Rankin Family fame, has just released his newest solo album. And, as part of his huge cross-country promotional tour, Rankin is making a pit stop in Langley this month. Forget About the World, Rankin’s new album, was launched in mid-April. The tour began a short time later in Quebec, and with stops in about 30 locales in a little more than a month, it’s apparent Rankin is anxious to spread word of his more folksy, country-pop blend of music. Many will recognize Rankin’s name from his years as part of the award-winning Rankin Family. The group’s unique Maritime-down-home-kitchen-partybrought-to-stage sound won them countless Canadian music awards, including six Junos, four SOCANs, three Canadian Country Music, and two Big Country Music awards, for songs such as You Feel the Same Way, Too and North Country. But as a solo artist who also ventured out on his own at the beginning of this century, Rankin has created his own solo sound and style. Creation of three previous solo albums, Song Dog, Handmade, and Edge of Day, earned this singer and songwriter his own distinction following. He went on to win artist of the year from the Canadian Country Music Awards and East Coast Music Awards in 2002, SOCAN Songwriter of the Year two years running, and the male artist of the year and record of the year in 2004. It’s been four years since he released his last 12-track album. And despite his strong country roots, Rankin takes this – his fourth solo album – to what he calls a different plane. The album’s first single, Here In My Heart, features a guest performance on guitar by international country superstar Keith Urban, a long-time fan and vocal supporter of Rankin.

yler Seib was first lured away from Langley Players to Surrey Little Theatre because the new organization had a youth group. That was eight years ago. Now that Seib is 23, the Langley man – who admittedly is no longer a teen but still considers himself a youth – is heading up the theatre’s youth group and advising on their upcoming play, Unusual Suspects. In his newest role, he’s hoping to lure more youth to the Surrey Little Theatre, and specifically its audition this weekend. “One crime. Four high school students. And one angry principal. The hilariously action-packed comedy Unusual Suspects by Samara Siskind, unites four unlikely students who may not have a lot in common on the surface,” Seib said. “But they do share one thing – utter animosity towards the man who’s haunted their high school years. Will they get their revenge?” Well, if Brookswood Secondary grad Loryn LeGear gets her way, they just might.

LeGear, who also heads up the SLT youth group, is directing this upcoming summer show running July 13 to 23, and she’s looking for 14 actors to fill 28 roles in this youth production. All roles must be filled by people between 12 and 18 years of age – with the exception of one, which will be the character of Mr. Piddles, the principal. LeGear has been acting on the SLT stage since she was 14. Last seen on the group’s stage in Rebel Without A Cause, this 23year-old has returned to make her directorial debut. She’s partnering with Seib, who she met during her first role at SLT nine years ago. He’ll be joining the team as a technical advisor. A what? An advisor who will mentor youth interested in the operation of the lighting and sound for this production. And rounding out the team will be Michael Ringland, a 19-year-old Clayton Heights resident who’s taking on the role of producer Open auditions for Unusual Suspects is being held Sunday and Monday, May 15 and 16, at the Surrey Little Theatre playhouse, 7027 184th Street, in Clayton Heights. Auditions begin at 6 p.m. Info: www.surreylittletheatre.com. • More online at www.langleyadvance.com, click on “Entertainment”

International Year of Forests

A thing as lovely as a…

L

angley’s artist version of the United Nations has built its latest show around the International Year of Forests. The United Nations proclaimed 2011 and the Fort Langley Artists’ Group has based its current show on it. FLAG’s 17 members are exhibiting in Into the Forest, the show that runs May 13-26. The group chooses two themes each year for its big exhibitions of members’ works. Artist Deborah Strong suggested the theme. “International Year of Forests is

globally dedicated to the preservation and celebration of the world’s forested areas, many of which are, as we know, in extreme jeopardy,” she explaind. “My rationale for the idea is that FLAG is based in a rural area where members are fortunate enough to have access to forested areas, and that it is a theme that resonates for many of us. Additionally, forests play a significant role in the quality of life we enjoy – for example, our air quality, our recreational spaces and our economy – so it’s important that we draw attention to their importance.” The artists interpretations include their takes on local forests, as well as tropical themes, birds and wildlife, and of course human/forest interatction. Painting styles range from life-like, to semi-impressionist, to abstract. The

works are in a variety of styles and mediums (watercolour, oil, acrylic and hand-painted silk), drawings, clay works, photography and more. “I think it will be a really engaging exhibition on a theme that has relevance to people in this community,” Strong said. FLAG is based at the old CN Rail Station in Fort Langley. People can attend the opening reception 7-9 p.m. on May 13. The gallery is open noon to 4 p.m. Saturdays, Sundays and holidays from May through Labour Day.

I ask him if he would like to go dancing and as long as I include horse cookies in the conversation I’m guaranteed a yes,” she quipped. The works feature dressage riders at various riding stables around Langley. “The emphasis in these paintings is the motion of the riders and horses,” Falk said. “Muscles, line, connection and movement were always in my thoughts while painting this series.” People can see the show May 11-29 with the opening reception May 15, 1-4 p.m. The gallery is an artists’ cooperative and is open noon to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.

eople who frequent Ten Thousand Villages in downtown Langley City know the shop operated by the Mennonite Central Committee is all about providing interesting goods from around the globe while paying the people who make those goods fair amounts. Anyone who hasn’t visited the store on Fraser Highway (there are also stores in many other Canadian cities) might want to head down Saturday as TTV marks World Fair Trade Day. “This is our favourite day of the year,” said Olga Nickel, manager of Ten Thousand Villages in Langley. “From people who know very little about Fair Trade to long timesupporters – everyone has a good time.” Music, games, stories and – of course – Fair Trade food will be the order of the day at Ten Thousand Villages stores across the country. Many of the local staff at the store are volunteers and they will be on hand to answer questions. At 1 p.m., the rhythmic African group Shirika will perform in the store. And this is all free to the public. TTV started in 1946 as an effort to give fair prices for items from women in Puerto Rico. It grown and is now the oldest and largest fair trade organization in North America.

Dine in darkness The Langley Pos-Abilities Society is hosting an event at which diners are blindfolded. by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

E

ating is the most basic of human activities but imagine not being able to see the food. How does that affect the dining experience? The Langley Pos-Abilities Society is giving people a chance at Dining in the Dark on May 13. The event allows people to try on a disability, explained Zosia Ettenberg, who founded the society. The goal is to help people have a better understanding of the life of a blind person. Diners at Friday’s event, which takes place at Andreas Restaurant downtown, will have assistants while they are blindfolded for the meal. The blindfolds are modified Mardi Gras style masks. Ettenberg said the hope is to have more dinners in the future with the focus changing to different disabilities. This is the second event allowing people to try on a disability, with a fundraising gala held earlier this year. “Due to the interest generated by our recent Love is Blind Gala and the request for tickets that would be more economical, we have responded by organizing Dining in the Dark event,” she explained. Tickets are $40. The evening includes live and silent auctions and door prizes. Call 604-961-0117 for information and reservations. The evening gets underway at 6 p.m.

I

love being a chef. Food is a universal language that touches the lives of almost everyone. No matter what road of life one travels along, chances are they have an appreciation for a good meal. If you know my wife Katherine and I, you will know of our love for not only food, but also for music. Recently, we had the pleasure of being introduced to country music legend Toby Keith while he was in town for his American Ride Tour. Toby Keith has taken his love for food and paired it with the success of his hit single, “I Love This Bar,” to create a chain of restaurants aptly named I love This Bar & Grill. The popular honky tonkstyle restaurants are dotted across the U.S.A., and his 10th location will soon be opening in Boston. Although we have not personally visited any of his locations as of yet, they are definitely on our radar for the near future. When inquiring about any recipes from the menu he could share with my readers, we were provided with the following two. They may require a bit of improvisation on your part, depending on the ingredients available where you live, but creativity is half the fun of cooking. The other half is “drinking beer from a mason jar” while doing so. Enjoy.

In the Garden by Anne Marrison

I’m hoping it is equally hardy. Is it possible you’re starting your leeks too late? The more time leeks have to grow outside, the fatter they get, because they grow like onions, adding extra layers as they go. Also, leeks need a lot of water – and that can be a problem for gardeners with water restrictions. Compost in leek trenches is a great idea. So is a grass-clipping mulch, for nutrition and to conserve water. Earthworms congregate under the mulch and get busy improving the soil – their help is a real blessing any time, but especially if you’ve got clay. Dear Anne,

We have a 30-year-old rose bush that had to be moved. The root was enormous and we were wondering if it could be cut in order to propagate another bush. Does it need rooting medium?’

wonder if you are growing summer leeks. They are pale green, fast-growing, and thinner than the longer-season winter ones. Summer leek varieties include Varna, King Richard, Lancelot, and Jolant. Winter types include Blue Solaise, Durabel, and Musselburgh. In the past, you could identify summer leeks by their very fast growing times (70 to 80 days), while the winter or late fall leeks would be identified as needing about 135 days to harvest. The original long-growing winter leeks often have dark green leaves, sometimes with purple tinges. But in the last few years, hybrid leeks have been developed with a variety of growing times and leaf shades. Really, you need to try different kinds of leeks in your area and see what works for you. I garden in raised beds of clay loam, and my favourite leek is Blue Solaise. It is very winter-hardy and has beautiful purple-green leaves. I’ve been getting seed from England (Chiltern), because I found it hard to get locally. But Saltspring Seeds started offering Darcy’s Purple Leek this year.

Many roses are grafted, and even if a new plant did grow from grafted roots, it would be a wild type with very different leaves and flowers from the original top growth. But if your rose bush was on its own roots, and multiple-stemmed or prone to suckering, you could propagate a new rose bush by splitting off a section of root together with its attached upright stem (or sucker). A root which contained an active suckering growth point might also become a plant. Stem cuttings could work. They usually need to be cut and plunged into soil when leaves are on the stems. August and September are the best months to try. Stem cuttings do benefit from rooting hormone. Meanwhile, leaving a few leaves on the stem will make sure photosynthesis will nourish the nodes that produce roots.

Effective on the date the attached Rules are filed with and registered by the Registrar of Cooperatives. (Copies of Rule Changes are available at our Administration Office or on our website@www.ottercoop.com)

Speedster returns to Rams

The most dynamic kick returner in Canadian junior football is back in the Rams’ fold as the team begins its new era in Langley. by Troy Landreville sports@langleyadvance.com

fear into BCFC defensive backs with his speed as a receiver, catching 15 passes for 397 yards and four touchdowns. He also chipped in with 118 yards on eight carries and another touchdown on the ground. More than anything else, however, Downey – recently timed at 4.4 seconds in the 40-yard dash – relishes the challenge of returning kicks. “It [returning kicks] is the best part of the game, the most intense,” he said. “It sets the tone for your offence when you have a good return.” Downey was invited to attend the BC Lions free agent camp on April 27, which was held at the Lions’ facility in Surrey. The Rams’ spring camp wraps up with a “Blue vs. White” game on Sunday afternoon at 1:30 p.m. Admission is free.

About the Rams

Formerly known as the South Surrey Big Kahuna Rams – the lone Metro Vancouver entry in the BCFC – the team announced its relocation to Langley this past November. “The bottom line is it came down to facilities,” Swartz said. The Rams played out of Bear Creek Park until 2006, when it shifted to South Surrey Athletic Park. The field in South Surrey met the team’s needs but the facility was bare bones. “It wasn’t a hard decision at all from the club’s standpoint,” Swartz said. “When you look at the facilities we’re going to, there’s no comparison. We’re going to be based out of McLeod [Athletic Park] Stadium and we’ll have our own dedicated clubhouse and dressing room in the stadium. We’ll have a nice practice facility there and the ability to

Season tickets and more information about the team is available on the Rams’ website, www.langleyrams.com. The BCFC consists of six teams: Langley, Victoria, Nanaimo, Kamloops, Chilliwack, and Kelowna. ••• The BC Lions have invited Rams’ defensive back Jordan Linnen to the club’s rookie camp June 1-4. The Surrey native will attend the four day rookie camp as a territorial junior exception, hoping to earn an invite to the Lions main camp, which gets underway the following week in Kamloops.

Folks familiar with the recently relocated Langley Rams will see a familiar and much-welcomed face at their spring training camp this weekend (May 13-15) at McLeod Athletic Park. Among the approximately 100 players taking part will be Nick Downey, Canadian junior football’s top special teams player the past two seasons running. At the camp, the 20year-old joins some of the top junior football prospects from BC Minor and BC High School football programs. Downey’s return to the Rams promises to be a special treat for Langley football fans. The native of Dartmouth, N.S., and former CIS player with the Acadia Axemen chalked up more than 1,000 return yards in 2010, including 720 yards and three touchdowns on punt returns. In doing so, he was honoured as the BC Football Conference’s Most Outstanding Special Teams Player and as the Canadian Junior Football League’s Most Outstanding Return Specialist in both 2009 and 2010. So what does the 5’7” 165-pound Downey do for an encore? “I just want to help the team finish in a good spot

Young cyclists will be offered tips, training, and the chance to test some high-end mountain bikes this weekend in Aldergrove. The Langley Mountain Bike Association (LMBA) is holding its first Bike Fest on Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Aldergrove Bike Park. “We’re hoping for a decent turnout,” said Heath MacKenzie, one of the event organizers. MacKenzie’s bike shop Cranky’s is also sponsoring the Bike Fest. Mountain bikers will be offered advice at skills clinics that will look at technical skills such as balance, and how to ride on particular obstacles.

A rider can focus on downhill riding, on dirt jumping, or on the highly technical riding over wooden planks and other man-made courses. On display at the Bike Fest will be some demo bikes from manufacturer Rocky Mountain. It’s an opportunity not just to look, but to touch. Riders will be allowed to take the high-end bikes out for a spin in the bike park. Trials demos will be held at noon and 2 p.m., with clinics afterwards. The Bike Fest is the LMBA’s answer to its search for a new purpose. For several years, the group has lobbied and planned to see mountain bike parks created in the Township. “Now that we’ve got some parks, what are we going to do?” was the question, MacKenzie said. The answer is to reach out, particularly to young riders, to help them learn and have fun with their bikes. Aldergrove Bike Park is located at 27th Avenue and 268th Street.

Walnut Grove Gator Mackenzie Oram looked to dish the ball off while being converged upon by a trio of Clayburn Middle School tacklers during a Grade 8 boys rugby game Tuesday at Walnut Grove Secondary. Clayburn outscored Walnut Grove 41-35. In a losing effort, the Gators’ try scorers were Brendan Atchison and Tyler Anderson with two each, Noah Albert, and Tamir Alatrash. Parker Ross recorded conversions.

The Norwesters Elementaries Meet at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby was memorable for the Langley Mustangs. It was especially significant for nineyear-old Natalie Monro, who set a new club record with a time of 9.29 seconds in the 60-metre dash. Meanwhile, her Mustangs teammates, between the ages of nine and 13, dominated their first track and field club meet of the season, which ran Saturday and Sunday. Many ribbons were won and top 10 results achieved, as the team’s training since mid-March has paid off. Strong girls performances came from Jaclyn Pauley, 13, with a silver in the 100 metres and long jump, and a bronze in the high jump. Tanika Dolfo, 12, took gold in the long jump and silver in shot put. The greatest success came in the girls high jump with winning efforts from Teagan Richardson, 10, Caroline Gillespie, 12, and 13-year-olds Hanna Rolfe and Chloe Hetherington. The boys were not to be outdone.

Eleven-year-old Vaughn Taylor dominated, with gold medals in the long jump, high jump, 100 metres, 200 metres, and 600 metres, along with a silver in the 60 metres and a bronze in the shot put. Josiah Perovich, 10, claimed silver in the 100 metres, 600 metres, and 1,000 metres, while teammate Joel Harrison, 12, added golds in high jump, long jump and the 300 metres. More gold came from Drey Blair, 12, in the 100 metres and shot put, and Daniel Pavlic, 13, in the 100-metre and 200metre sprints. ••• While these young competitors were hauling in their winnings, records were set by the senior Mustangs at the Valley Royals meet in Abbotsford. Adam Osdorne and Stuart Ellenwood, both 18, broke their own existing club records. Osborne pole vaulted to a height of 4.10 metres to erase his four metre record, while Ellenwood ran a strong 400 metres in 49.07 seconds, bettering his last year’s time of 49.56 seconds. Georgia Ellenwood, 16, used this meet to successfully make the qualifying point standard in the heptathlon. She is striving to represent Canada at the youth world championships in France in July.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Money matters heat up – strive to meet schedules, deadlines. There are profit or good earnings here, but even more, present efforts, money accomplishments and new money directions can lead to a whole year of grand financial results, beginning next month! Often, the best actions are preceded by planning, preparation. Do these now, while your mood and optimism, wisdom and view, are high and accurate. This week is mostly successful, but avoid self-deception Wednesday morning, electricity Thursday eve, and “partnership finances” before 9 a.m. Friday. Sex, finances good Monday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Your energy and charisma climb higher, as Mars entered your sign last Wednesday, and Venus and Mercury enter Sunday. These are the three planets involved in 90 per cent of all romance, socializing and popularity – so expect yours to climb! (And in 21days Jupiter also enters Taurus, bringing big luck, the kind that sparks life-changing events.) Use this week to press forward with new or significant projects. Sunday/ Monday bring opportunities, but demand cooperation, diplomacy. Finances, intimacy, bonding and commitment draw you mid-week. Wisdom, gentle love Thursday onward. Gemini May 21-June 20: This is your last week of weariness, quietude and solitude, and of being ignored. Endure it with good humour. We all have our surges and our ebbing. Starting Saturday (end of this week) your energy will increase, and you’ll have a few weeks to take things “over the hump” – to succeed, impress and solve. The best time will be May 21 to June 3, so be prepared to act quickly and fortunately to make a major wish come true. Use this week to plan your late-May actions. Prepare, get paperwork or government or bank records in order. Be charitable. Fulfill obligations. Rest, eat sensibly.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Romance calls Sunday/ Monday! So do pleasure, arts, creativity, sports, speculation. But work arrives Tuesday to Thursday noon. Plunge in, you’ll get it done easily. Thursday noon to Saturday is both the most important and the luckiest part of this week. Opportunities, exciting meetings, new horizons, success with the public and in contract negotiations, even love can appear. But you need to be co-operative, diplomatic and eager, as others hold the winning cards. Handle irritations Thursday twilight, Friday morning, and mid-afternoon Saturday. Dreams can come true this week! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Continue to strive ambitiously. Show higher-ups what you’re capable of, finish projects and duties without slacking. Your performance is being watched closely. Over the weeks ahead, if anything, your career heats up. Within less than a month, a great current of luck enters this area (status, prestige, ambitions) to stay for a year. Start ramping up – big things lie ahead for those who are eager and hard-working! But first, take a rest Sunday/Monday; prepare your foundations, give your family support and attention. Romance, pleasure call mid-week. Tackle chores Thursday onward. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your gentle, compassionate mood continues. It has begun to generate an important idea, project or situation (or relationship). This important thing will grow smaller yet more focused and concentrated over the next few weeks – then, like a sponge in water, swell to absorb more and more of your life and attention, from June to June 201112. Important thing = higher education, international travel or dealings, a major cultural ritual (wedding, etc.) a lawsuit or legal dealing, communication, media or publishing, religion, or finding a life philosophy... and, love. Romance, late week.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A huge wave of luck is just around the corner in investments, debt reduction, lifestyle change, health/diagnosis, research, intimacy and sexual bonding, pregnancy and similar lifechanging zones. These things have already impacted your life, pressing on you like a grey velvet hand, for the last three years in an upheaval way, for 18 months in a sober, “let me be secure” way, for the last three weeks in a hopeful way; and now to June 4 in a focused, event-triggering way. On June 4, a whole year of “big luck” starts here. Get ready to invest, change, commit! Fortune might lie at a distance. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Relationships, previously lively, grow serious, focused. Issues become clear. You could fall in love, note someone’s looks, or renew sparks with your mate. Opportunities arise in work, machinery, finances and social life. These are the precursors, or wee beginnings, of really major opportunities that arrive June 2011 to June 2012. Right now (in May) these are “pure chemistry” attractions/opportunities, but June onward they will tend to be connected to money, earnings, possessions. You could hop on the wagon to the mint! Propose, seize the day, Sunday/Monday and Friday! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The work is starting to come. The past few weeks have just been “ordinary work.” Now, the chores become clearer, more significant. From June 2011 to June to 2012, your luck will grow in this area, but your duties will expand, too. (It’s not “get out of work” luck.) You’ll be lucky, also (June onward) in machinery, so this will be a good time to buy a car/computer, to learn tooling skills, etc. You will almost certainly earn more money (unless you’re in school, etc.). Watch your health, especially thighs and hips. Rest Sunday/ Monday. You shine mid-week. Money late week!

May 15 - 21, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The general emphasis lies on romance, pleasure, beauty, creativity, charming kids, speculation. Take a risk, express yourself! All these pleasurable things shrink but grow more “intense” over the next few weeks; then they will swell larger and larger for 12 months. Hopefully you’ve done all you can for your security by now: if not, tie up any loose ends (e.g., property deals, retirement plans, investments, family issues). The future year will not reward caution! Optimism, social joys early week, rest mid-week. Your energy and charisma shine late week – approach someone! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The security, domestic, real estate, family, restful, contemplative, natureoriented, soul and nutrition themes that have run through recent weeks continue: but they tend to produce events now through June 2012, lucky events. The best will come after early June. This can be huge luck: a home of your own, or additional real estate, a new family, a new child, the resolution of old problems, dissolution of old skeletons (yes, therapy will be productive). You can leave behind a life of constriction and worry, for a new, bright one! Saturday begins a month of pleasure! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Travel, communications, paperwork, details, casual friends and siblings – these fill the days, even more so now. In the 13 months ahead, you might take two or more significant trips. You’ll do a lot of talking about your career or ambitions, but you won’t do much about them. (It’s as though you sense something deeper, bigger, “fuller” is coming by 2012/13...could be! Could be pregnancy if you’re the right age.) Sunday/Monday feature far travel, rituals, gentle love, wisdom. Ambition, higherups demand your attention midweek. Wish fulfillment, social joys Thursday-Saturday! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
