Having just won re-election in the Langley federal riding, MP Mark Warawa says it won’t exist much longer. The Conservative MP expects his party’s newly elected majority to redistribute ridings for the next election, expected in four years. “One thing that I feel quite passionate about is having the West get its fair share of seats,” Warawa said. The average size of a riding in Canada is meant to be between 100,000 and 105,000 people. Many rural and northern ridings have fewer residents, but are allowed to remain as is, due to the difficulty of MPs representing huge ridings. However, there are an estimated 133,000 people in Langley right now, Warawa said.

Langley’s official population as of the last five seats, and Ontario is short 13 seats,” census was almost 118,000, and it’s been Warawa estimated. growing rapidly since then.

Store clerk suffers hammer assault Brutal blows with a hammer were rained on a store clerk in Aldergrove.

Two men dressed in hoodies walked into the store at the corner of 29th Avenue and 272nd Street at about 7:20 a.m. and attacked, said RCMP Cpl. Patrick Davies. The clerk was hit in the head and jaw, but was fortunate in that he suffered only what Davies described as “relatively minor injuries.” The thieves fled in a white vehicle, possibly a Ford and about the size of a Taurus. The licence plate had been obscured or scratched out. The only description the victim could give of his attackers was that they were wearing “hoodies,” Davies said. “The clerk was understandably quite upset,” he said. The Langley RCMP Serious Crimes Section is investigating.

MP aims to protect albinos

2011

Riding redistribution is not meant to favour any one party over another. The readjustment is done by independent commissions, with judges usually taking the lead roles in setting out the new boundaries. Other current concerns for Warawa include finally passing a resolution of the House of Commons condemning the killing and mutilation of albinos in Tanzania. Langley’s Peter Ash, who himself has albinism, has been working to improve the lives of those with the condition in Africa. In Tanzania superstitious people believe that medicines can be made from those with albinism, a MORE condition that causes a lack PHOTOS of pigment in skin, hair, ONLINE and eyes. WWW.LANGLEYADVANCE.COM “We as a Parliament will condemn the killing of albinos,” said Warawa. He expects a unanimous vote; the resolution had already gone through committee discussion but was killed by the call to an election. Getting the Conservatives’ economic and anti-crime legislation through is another priority, Warawa said. The Tories have pledged to balance the budget without tax increases, which means looking for efficiencies in government services. Warawa doesn’t expect to see cuts that will affect Langley residents. Parliament will likely resume sitting in late May, with the appointment of a cabinet and the election of a new speaker of the House of Commons. In the meantime, Warawa is answering the massive backlog of emails that accumulated at his riding office during the 39-day election.

Langley schools

Teachers asked to use time wisely School trustees are encouraging schools to make better use of time. by Heather Colpitts

hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Langley School Board wants to ensure schools use exam time efficiently. Trustee Alison McVeigh got unanimous support on April 26 to tell schools to maximize classroom time and instruction. The board earlier opted to cut six instructional days from the school year, but to extend school days by about 10 minutes each, to save $250,000. The first of McVeigh’s two motions called for schools to use the minutes added to each school day in “meaningful and productive ways.” One of the things trustees heard when

looking at changing the school calendar is that adding time may not have the same educational benefits, she explained. “I think they’re going to do this anyway,” said Tr. Rod Ross. Tr. Rob McFarlane said he hopes schools will use innovation and creativity to make the best of the extra minutes. “And hopefully we’ll learn some stuff from that,” he said. The second motion dealt with exam times and semester ends when many secondary students are taking tests. The schedules were created in years past when there were more tests, so today’s students are left with more free time. Only some of the exams are mandatory, noted superintendent Cheryle Beaumont. “Certainly we’ve heard… from parents that they expect students to be in class as much as possible,” she commented.

Thanks, folks! Congratulations and thanks are in order, all around, from top to bottom. But now that we have a majority government back in Ottawa, it is more important than ever to establish who is at the “top” and who constitutes the “bottom” in our national political heirarchy. We’ll start at the top. Congratulations and thanks to all the folks in Langley who made the effort to go to the polls, either on election day or through one of the many added opportunities to vote in advance or with special ballots. By rationally considering the issues and choosing the candidates who best suit each individual’s vision for who and what is best for the country, ordinary citizens make the machinery of democracy run. Next up in the congratulatory pecking order are the people – more ordinary folks – who work with candidates and/or political parties to disseminate the messages that voters need to make informed choices. Everyone who takes democracy seriously owes those people a debt of thanks. On the next rung down the ladder are the candidates. Congratulations to Mark Warawa for his convincing victory on Monday. It’s clear that his thoughts and concerns most reflect those of the people of Langley, but he has a difficult job ahead, knowing that he will have to serve many masters whose personal views differed towards his opponent candidates’ – all of whom we thank for their time and effort, and for their offer of service to their community and their country. And finally, on the bottom – not the top – is yet another ordinary citizen, Prime Minister Stephen Harper. We congratulate him on his parliamentary majority, and thank him for his past service to our country, and for his offer to continue serving all of the citizens of Canada. It won’t be an easy job to balance the needs and desires of all of the country’s 34 million people. He deserves to know that his employers – all the people of Canada – are appreciative of his efforts. – B.G.

Transfusions a medical miracle Painful truth Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

The history of medicine is basically a long, long, long history of being wrong, with a short postscript about being partly right. For thousands of years, the best medical advice you could get was, “Rest, and hope it gets better on its own.” Sure, people tried to fix each other up. There are caveman skulls from Europe with large holes gouged in them – holes that had begun to heal over before the victim, I mean patient, died. What were they trying to do? Cure migraines or seizures? Treat mental illness? Let out evil spirits (which is probably how they understood migraines, seizures, or mental illness)? Things had actually not improved much by the time we got up to the Renaissance. At the time, doctors in Europe believed that the body contained four humours. No, not ha-ha humours, these corresponded to the classical four elements (this was before the periodic table, as well) and supposedly determined personality as well as overall health. So if you had too much or too little of one of the humours, you needed to be rebalanced. Probably by being bled. Bloodletting was a major medical procedure for hundreds of years, especially before antibiotics or widespread vaccinations. Doctors in the 18th and early 19th centuries must have been particularly frustrated that they had an

ever-increasing knowledge of anatomy, but few ways to treat diseases. Aside from opiates, chemical medicines were in their infancy. So, bleeding. There are even accounts of people being stabbed, rushed to a doctor, and immediately being bled as treatment. Yeah, that’ll help. Around the time that doctors and scientists figured out that bleeding was either useless or harmful, they found a good reason to keep drawing blood. They learned how to do transfusions. The tale of scientists learning how to type, store, and transfuse blood is another one of those unglamorous tales that has helped millions. These days, the modern heroes are twofold: there are the nurses, doctors, and lab technicians who keep a close watch on the system to keep it safe. Then there are the donors themselves. As someone who’s done it, let me assure you that donating is easy. All you have to do is lie there. There’s a little pinch, some boring waiting, and then you get a cookie! Canadian Blood Services is, as usual, trying to increase the number of people who donate. (The blood drop symbol on this page and others is one part of their most recent campaign.) There is a steady need for donors, as stored blood isn’t just needed for injuries or surgical patients. There are regular blood transfusions needed for cancer patients in treatment, among other users of blood products. Bloodletting may be medically worthless, but donating blood gives you a warm feeling. Call 1-888-2DONATE if you want to know what I’m talking about.

Even safe dogs unpredictable

Dear Editor, My name is Bella. I am a miniature poodle and admit to being a tad anxious. I have had a few large dogs lunge at me, and I am quite terrified on walks. My owner tries to be calm, cool, and collected when we go walking, but she does get a tad nervous as well when we see large dogs off leash, because of past experience. Here is my request to all fellow dogs. Please ask your owners to have you on a leash, even if you are on your own front yard. Your owners always yell out that you are “safe and friendly,” but here is what happened recently that you and your owners need to consider. I was walking innocently with my owner. Two dogs were off leash in their front yard. They came bounding towards me and their owner yelled out, “Don’t worry, they’re okay!” Well, I panicked, barking to save my life. My owner tugged me behind her to protect me, which caused me a little more anx-

iety (she’s no Dog Whisperer). The “friendly” dogs were threatened by my barking (which makes me feel kind of good, considering I am less than half their size). One of the dogs bared its teeth and lunged at me, trying to bite my tiny body; the other raced around me. My owner screamed and yanked me to safety, and this continued for what seemed like forever. The other dog owner picked me up to kindly protect me from his dogs, but I was extremely annoyed at this point, so I chomped down hard on his hand. So much for a leisurely Sunday stroll. Please convince your owners that, even though you may be a “friendly” dog, when you see me in defence mode, regardless of my size, it gets your back up, too, and then things get ugly. You need to be leashed up, even if you are relaxing in your own front yard. Bella Gobillot, Langley

Glenwood

Small school just keeps on growing

Dear Editor, Enrolment is not declining at Glenwood Elementary. The teachers, staff, parents, and students still think about how close we came to losing our school just over a year ago. Everyone in our community school has pulled together and is working hard to make sure we don’t have another close call. Today, there are 146 children attending – Langley School District predicted there would only be 133 enrolled. Our little school has a capacity of 200 children. We are 73 per cent full, and enrolment is looking good for next year. We need to protect and preserve our country heritage, and realize how important Glenwood is. I know we still have a long way to go, but with development starting soon, we are confident our little school will grow in numbers, and the children will continue to thrive. As for Glenwood academics, we were all proud of the six students who represented Glenwood at the Langley District Speech Festival.

Eleven schools and 47 students participated in the event hosted by Peterson Road Elementary. Also, for the 2010/2011 year, in Grade 8 alone, 72 per cent of former Glenwood students are on the effort or honour roll at the local high school. Thirteen per cent of the graduating class is on the honour or effort roll, and six per cent of those graduates are former Glenwood students. That is something to be proud about! Our new Glenwood Elementary community garden is well underway, thanks to one of our volunteer parents. There are enough beds for each class to learn everything from planting seeds to harvesting the rewards. Students are also looking forward to watching three chicken eggs hatch. Eggs and incubator were donated to the school by one of the parents, so the children can have hands-on learning experience. Glenwood Elementary also gives back to the community. In September the students ran the Terry Fox

Education

Schools overcrowded

Dear Editor, Interesting to see that the Langley School district population is reported to be dropping when there is such an increase in density on the Willoughby slope. R.C. Garnett Elementary, 7096 201st St., is overfull – children in the vicinity cannot all attend their local school. A land exchange to which Langley School District was part now forms the basis for a development application for the area of 198A Street and 70th Avenue to 200th Street and 71st Avenue. The area now no longer has a spot zoned for a primary school. The proposal calls for the addition of 103 new townhomes. The elementary schools in this area are already over capacity. Where does the School District 35 foresee the young children will be attending school? Ilona Pretorius, Langley

National School Run, and in December, Glenwood students and families collected more than 30 “Coats for Kids” for distribution by the Lower Mainland Christmas Bureau to families in need. “Jump Rope for Heart Jump Off” was held April 20 during regular gym class. Money raised will be going to the Heart & Stroke Foundation. On May 27, Glenwood Elementary intermediate students will be participating in the Canadian Cancer Society Relay for Life. There are a lot of things going on at Glenwood. In October 2010, the primary children learned and enjoyed rollerblading as part of their gym class. In January, the intermediate children had the pleasure of learning to ski and snowboard at Mt. Seymour over a four week period, while the primary students had the opportunity to go ice skating. On March 30 the Capital One “Rocks & Rings” program introduced all Glenwood students to the Olympic sport of curling, and in April, Trestle Tree gymnastics equipment was set up in the gym for two weeks, for all classes to have a chance to experience balancing, hanging, jumping, and flipping. In May, the Grade 7 students will get to experience and learn about nature and the great outdoors during a three-day camping trip. There have been many more activities, but I am trying to keep this letter short. A lot of these great learning experiences were provided by Glenwood PAC fundraisers, parent fundraising, and parent volunteer support. Liz Firth, Glenwood

Free up the fun with your RV. One of the many fun things about spring and summer is being able to use your recreational vehicle. No matter what kind of RV you have - a trailer, camper or motor home - here are some BCAA tips for a worry-free RV season. Review the declared value annually: Unlike standard private passenger vehicles, the insured value of RVs is based on their declared value. This is the actual cash value at the time you are insuring it. What to consider when determining the value:

B.C.’S HOTTEST GIRLS!

Conservative support in Langley is not just deep, it is spread across the whole community.

A voter headed out of the rain and into a polling station at the Langley Secondary gymnasium on Monday morning. A total of 55,132 Langley residents cast their votes on election day.

by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Mark Warawa didn’t just win the bulk of Langley’s votes – he won at every single polling place, numbers released by Elections Canada show. The Conservative MP was re-elected with 35,569 votes out of 55,132 cast, for 64.5 per cent of the total votes. Warawa was victorious in every one of the 193 regular polls, as well as in the advance polls and special polls held in place such as hospitals. Looking at the results from various neighbourhoods does show that the support was higher or lower depending on where in Langley a ballot was cast. Warawa was particularly dominant in some parts of the riding. For example, at one Glen Valley polling place, he took 224 votes, to 34 for NDP challenger Piotr Majkowski, 17 for Liberal Rebecca Darnell, 13 for Green Carey Ann Poitras, and one for Pirate Party candidate Craig Nobbs. If there was a bright spot for Majkowski – who took a total of 20.5 per cent of the vote for second place – it was in Langley City. While there were many polling places where Warawa took three times the votes of his challengers,

Troy Landreville Langley Advance

there were a few where the NDP did relatively well. In polling place 97, Warawa took 65 votes to Majkowski’s 57. In polling place 98, it was 66 votes to 65, respectively. The two ridings, the high water mark for the NDP in Langley, are located in a rectangle bounded by 54th and 50th Avenues, and between 203rd and 204th Streets. Even polling places close together geographically could have relatively different results. At poll 56 in the Willowbrook/ Willoughby slope area, Majkowski took 58 votes to Warawa’s 87, a much closer result than in most areas. However at the adjacent poll 57, Warawa was again dominant, taking 112 votes to Majkowski’s 30. Warawa also clobbered his oppon-

ents at the advance polls, which drew a strong turnout this year. It seems that local Conservative supporters were very eager to vote early this year, as he took close to 75 per cent of the vote at some of those polls. Overall voter turnout was 62.2 per cent in Langley, slightly above the national average of 61.4 per cent. With the results finalized, the Elections Canada office at the corner of 202nd Street and 64th Avenue is getting ready to pack up. Returning officer Patrick Lucier said that all the candidates and the community helped ensure a harmonious and professional election process. “I’d really like to thank all the people of Langley who stepped up to the plate to help us run this election,” he said. Almost 1,100 people were hired and trained to staff the 193 regular polls, as well as mobile and advance polls that brought the total to 265.

Senior training trafficks in safety A free class on safe driving for seniors will be held this Monday.

Please note that the Annual General Meeting of the Otter Farm and Home Co-operative will be held at:

Lyle Phillips will be offering driving tips for senior citizens at an upcoming class. sight, it may be wise to avoid driving at night, Phillips noted. Some drivers may want to take more right turns and avoid lefts. BCAA formerly produced a questionnaire for older drivers that tried to judge whether they were safe. It included checklist statements such as, “I get easily frustrated when I drive,” “Cyclists, pedestrians or other vehicles suddenly seem to appear out of nowhere,” and, “I can easily move my foot from the gas to the brake and easily press the pedals.” Responding with “always,” “sometimes,” or “rarely” to the statements could act as an indicator that the driver poses a danger to himself or

others on the road. Phillips said that while some of those who take his class are worried about re-testing, he isn’t an agent of ICBC. His job is not to test the drivers and he won’t be taking away any licences. He said drivers also take his course out of curiosity, or because they drive for charity work – for the Canadian Cancer Society, for example – and they want to upgrade their skills. The two-hour classroom course will be held on Monday, from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Langley Seniors Resource Centre at 20605-51B Ave. The class is free to attend. To register, call 604-530-3020.

The Otter Co-op is accepting nominations for its Board of Directors. To be eligible, a person must be an Otter Co-op member, either as an individual or as a principal of a company that is a member and has purchased more than $1000 in the prior fiscal year. The person must be at least 18 years of age. The nominee must also be a strong supporter of the Co-op and agree with the Co-op’s Code of Ethics. Applications must be submitted by Tuesday, May 10, 5:00 pm. To submit a name, please call Chairperson John Watt at 604-533-1054 or Merilee McAuley at the Otter Co-op office 604-607-6923.

Driving doesn’t get easier as people get older. But Langley’s Lyle Phillips is hoping to make it a bit safer for senior citizens, with a BCAA-sponsored course at the Langley Seniors Resource Centre. Living Well, Driving Well is a two-hour session that will be held Monday, May 9. The message isn’t that seniors are bad drivers, Phillips said. But older people can experience a partial loss of their sight, hearing, and mobility. “Those are the three things that are most affected by age,” when it comes to driving, Phillips said. The retired teacher said he was surprised at some of what he learned when he began teaching the course several years ago. “I didn’t realize how much your sight deteriorates over time,” he said. The point of the course is to give drivers an opportunity to improve their skills, so they can stay on the roads in safety. For some that might mean changes in techniques, such as increased shoulder checking – something that all drivers should do regardless of their age. In other cases, with deteriorating

Rotary Shred-a-thon returns to end of tax season

Businesses and individuals are invited to have documents shredded in the Costco parking lot Saturday. With tax season now over, and people anxious to get rid of old, unwanted-

papers and documents, the Rotary Club of Langley Sunrise has picked the perfect time to hold its annual Shred-a-thon. Dozens of Rotarians, as well as volunteers from Cyclone Shredding, will be set up in the north end of the Costco parking lot for part of the day Saturday, helping people safely destroy old papers, said

Rotarian Ashley Gray, event organizer. The benefit to shredding old records in this method, aside from peace-of-mind that personal information is protected, is an ability to help a worthy cause, he said. The Langley Sunrise club has been holding this event for several years as a fundraiser. Last year’s event raised $2,500 that

goes to different Rotary projects. There’s no set fee for shredding, Gray said. The club suggests about $10 per box, but understands some who are financially strapped can’t afford to donate that much. The Shred-a-thon is being held at Costco, 20499 64th Ave. from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 7.

Plea entered on sex charges A former TV reporter says he is not guilty. by Jenifer Saltman Postmedia Network Inc.

A lawyer entered not-guilty pleas in B.C. Provincial Court in Surrey Wednesday on behalf of former Global TV reporter Ron Bencze. Bencze, 44, was not present for the proceedings. He faces three charges of sexual assault, four charges of sexual interference and two charges of invitation to sexual touching involving children. The charges involve three alleged victims. Police said the alleged offences were committed over a 10-year period, from 2001 to 2011. Andrea Camilletti, a lawyer from the office of Peck and Company, appeared for Bencze. Camilletti said Bencze pleads not guilty to all of the charges and elects to have a trial before a B.C. Supreme Court judge alone. Bencze stated previously that he will vigorously defend himself against the charges. An eight-day preliminary inquiry, after which a judge will decide if there is enough evidence to proceed to trial, has not yet been scheduled. Last month it was announced that Bencze no longer works for Global. He had been employed by the station since 2004. He was also suspended from volunteering as an assistant soccer coach at a Surrey club. Bencze is on bail with a number of conditions, including not having contact with his alleged victims or any young persons. He has reportedly been living in Langley since the charges were laid.

Maps show fine details of Langley Township

by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Langley Township has been mapped down to the level of individual houses, and now that information is available to anyone, anywhere. A mapping partnership between the Township and the firm ESRI has put a great deal of data online as part of a project called Community Basemap. The plan is to map communities from across the country, putting the information online for the use of everyone: residents, builders, those planning to move, as well as municipal staff. The detailed basemap can be found at http:// www.tol.ca/f2A5Z. Among other things, the basemap shows the streets, rivers, building outlines, and topographical information. It gives more information that compar-

able free online tools such as Google Maps, said the head of the Township’s geomatics services, Derik Woo. The Township is not only participating in the project, it has also been selected as one of two communities for a pilot project will enable the data to be automatically published from the Township to the ESRI site to help ensure that the information is always current. It’s expected to reduce costs for people who regularly use Township information. In the past people who wanted mapping information because they were moving to or opening a business in the Township, or were conducting research, had to make a request and pay a fee to obtain the information. Consultants working with the Township also had to go through municipal staff to get the mapping information they required. Now much of it will be available for free online. The basemap is in addition to the open data sec-

Computers

Redesign for 21st century A new website has replaced the 14-year-old site the Township created in the late 1990s. Langley Township launched its new website this month, marking a break with the past. The process of creating the new site began with a year of conducting research, collecting information from residents and businesspeople, and finding out what the community wanted

and needed. The new site is still located at tol.ca, but it has a different look and new features. It consolidates information onto fewer pages, provides easier access to meeting dates, agendas, and schedules, and links subject pages to a Services and Contacts directory. “It is clean, modern, and easy to read,” said manager of corporate services Laurenda Rebelato, who noted the Township has been working on the new site for some time.

While the Township staff is working to make it as accurate as possible, Woo acknowledges that the maps may not be perfect. “We collect data, but sometimes it’s incorrect,” he said. The Township wants to create a system that will allow for public feedback and corrections when a member of the public notices an error in any of the mapping date. The entire mapping initiative with ERSI is close to free. “We have to maintain this information anyway,” said Woo. They simply pass the information along to ERSI once it’s collected, and it is added to the maps.

Sick children and their families depend on McHappy Day What’s in

Store

Roxanne Hooper

rhooper@langleyadvance.com

I must have opened the proverbial flood gates last week, when I mentioned it was a busy time with local companies and business people helping charities. Since then, I’ve been inundated with emails. Thank you to all who have sent stuff in, I appreciate it and I’ll always do my best to get as much information back out to our readers as possible. So leading that pack was an email from Jeanie Davis who told me of a fundraiser for children affected by HIV/AIDS in

South Africa can receive food, shelter, and hospice care through Emmanuel’s Wish (www.emmanuelswish.org). This fundraiser is being held from 10 a.m. to noon on Saturday, May 7, at the Bagel Classic Cafe in Walnut Grove, with coffee being served up by donation. The event is aptly named Sip For Hope. “I have had a longtime dream of doing something in honour of my friend Wendy who passed away as a result of contracting HIV/AIDS through a blood transfusion,” said Davis, who said the festivities continue later that same day nearby with another more-commercial event happening at the Bridlewoods clubhouse (9045 Walnut Grove Dr.) with proceeds from a skin care product being donated during its launch. The only reason I mention this part, is

the event also features Highland and ballet dance demonstrations, as well as violin and piano numbers.

McHappy Day is back

I also received word this week that one of my favourite, day-long fundraisers is back next week. Having participated in this event in past, but moreover, having seen what a tremendous help this event is for local children and families who have to depend on Ronald McDonald House, I am pleading with you to take note. Please stop by a McDonald’s restaurant on Wednesday, May 11. Even if you don’t normally dine there, consider breaking with tradition this one day. It’s the 18th annual McHappy Days, and for that day $1 from the sale of some food

and coffee sold benefits local children’s charities, including the Ronald McDonald Houses. Since its inception in 1977, this event has raised more than $32 million for kids. Realizing how successful it is, many other restaurants have created similar events. But none quite compare to McHappy Day. That might be because, as part of the McHappy Day celebrations, McDonald’s franchise owners and staff are joined by a variety of special guests, sports and media personalities (that’s where I’ve come in, in past), politicians, and professional entertainers as they flip burgers or greet customers and help raise money for children in town. Please check it out. • Stay tuned next time, I’ll tell you about downtown Langley’s Ten Thousand Villages working a World Fair Trade Day.

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

Camera clubs

Event showcases amateur’s best night images

Langley plays host to the 12th annual Fraser Valley photographic invitational. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

C

hief Sepass Theatre is being converted to an art gallery – of sorts – when a few hundred of the Lower Mainland’s best amateur photographers gather there Saturday night. Both the lobby, as well as theatre space inside this Fort Langley arts

facility are being taken over by the Langley Camera Club (LCC) for the 12th annual Fraser Valley photography invitational. In advance of the event, 13 camera clubs – stretching from Chilliwack to the North Vancouver – entered 10 of their members’ best digital photographs fitting with the predetermined competition theme. While this year’s theme is “night,” previous themes have included water, aged, light, flawed, and power, explained LCC president Dennis Ducklow. A panel of three judges reviewed those images back in mid-April,

scoring each photo out of possible 30 points, then picking the best three for special awards. The club that earned the most points overall, will also be honoured, Ducklow said. Saturday evening opens with a performance by a local dance group and is followed by a musical slide show of images created only by the Langley club – those images also on the night theme. During the first half of Saturday night’s festivities, guests are invited to relax in the theatre seats and view all 130 submitted images. As well, about 100 images from

the local camera club will be exhibited in the lobby throughout the evening. The night also features member-catered and served appetizers, door prizes, and even a few vendors. “The evening is a festive one,” Ducklow said. “The high-quality images, outstanding food, and abundance of prizes make for an evening of celebration.” Anyone interested in photographic arts is invited. Tickets are $18 at the door. For more information visit the local club’s website: www.langleycameraclub.com.

On stage

Versatile performers visit

A Cloverdale-based group brings its variety show to Langley.

T

he Brookswood Seniors Centre is hoping some good old-fashioned entertainment will be enough to raise funds to upgrade the centre. The centre is hosting two fundraisers May 7 when the variety act Susie Francis and the Versatiles provide an evening of fun for the whole family. “It’s family fun, beginning to end,” said emcee Terrence Morrissey. “You can bring your families, or rabbi or your grandmother if you want.” The troupe does 32 skits in 90 minutes. That includes Doug Armstrong, an 89-year-old who has been married three years. Armstrong will hit the stage dressed as a fairy, to describe the travails of retirement for his ilk. He’s the oldest member. Most of the members are 55 and older but sometimes younger members of Susie’s teenage grandchildren perform. Audiences are encouraged to clap and sing along with the entertainers. “For the first time this year, we’re going to have Peggy Thompson and the Brookswood line dancers,” he noted.

People can take in shows at 2 p.m. or 7 p.m. at the centre, 19899 36th Ave. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children six to 12 (children under six are admitted free with families). Drinks will be served at intermission. For tickets, contact the centre at 604-530-4232 or Lydia, 604590-3880, Morrissey, 604-534-4575, or Susie Francis, 604-613-3116.

Doug Armstrong brings his monologue on the life of a retired fairy when Susie Francis and the Versatiles perform May 7.

Arts in brief

Langley Players offer final viewing of Yonkers in Coquitlam

by Roxanne Hoooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

B

reaking news for theatre buffs, there’s still a chance to see one last showing of Langley Player’s recent production of Lost in Yonkers, but not at the Langley Playhouse in Brookswood. Instead, director Mary Renvall, and other members of the drama club, are entering this play in a regional theatre competition, meaning the showing will be in Tri-City. The Fraser Valley Zone Festival is being held at the Evergreen Cultural Centre in Coquitlam from May 8 to 14, and Langley’s opportunity to wow the judges comes Friday, May 13, at 8 p.m. The winner of the zone competition will then go on to Theatre BC Mainstage Festival in Kamloops in July.

Information on tickets and times is available at http://fvzfestival.theatrebc.org/ or call 604-927-6550.

There will be demonstrations, dis-

plays, and a concession available,” said City spokesperson Michele Payne. Their event runs Saturday, 2-5 p.m. at the music school, 4899 207th St. For event specifics, call 604-514-2865.

eafy green vegetables can give you a longer and more varied harvest than any other food plants – and the ways the leaves can be used has widened in the last few years to include smoothies and wraps, as well as salads. Most leafy greens tolerate part shade, and many are cut-and-come again. Both characteristics makes them useful in containers on partly shady balconies – especially since all the major pests of green leaves (slugs, flea beetles, aphids, and leaf miners) seldom trouble apartment gardens. In-ground gardeners aren’t so lucky. Row covers are good protectors, where the gardener feels flying insects are doing intolerable damage. But row covers aren’t cheap, and they need to be cleaned and stored very carefully if they are to last two or three years. Slug-infested gardens have special challenges, because row-plantings make plants an easy meal. For instance, a slug can chomp down a row of leafy seedlings in a single night. Many organic gardeners prefer to dot vegetable plantings in isolated groups all over the food garden. That helps protect against disease transfer and insects, and is effective if slug numbers are low. Where slugs are a major problem, gardeners might find it best to have all the leafy green veggies in one spot where hand-picking or alternative slug

BUILDING FOR BETTER HEALTH “This Centre represents a significant shift in how we will deliver care.” -Peter Goldthorpe, Vice President of Capital Projects, Real Estate and Facilities, Fraser Health

LEARN MORE Go to www.fraserhealth.ca for more information about the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre and to watch our video. Details about our public open house coming soon.

Only 27 days and counting until the opening Patient centred care begins at the doorstep of the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre, a new Fraser Health building opening June 1 in the heart of Surrey. Every aspect of the five-storey building at 140 Street and Fraser Highway was thoughtfully designed to meet the needs of outpatients – those who don’t require emergency care or an overnight hospital stay.

Architects worked closely with Fraser Health clinical groups to make each patient’s experience as stress-free as possible. A “one-stop shopping” approach brings together related services in the same location. Exam rooms are soundproofed and spacious enough to accommodate not only the patient and care team but family members as well.

“We kept the future in mind in building

“The flow, the convenience – everything we’ve done is to improve health outcomes and make a visit more pleasant,” said Barry Pearce, Chief Project Officer.

Mesquitta of BCHS Healthcare, which

Fraser Health services and programs are already booking patients for diagnostic scans and tests, specialist consults, follow-up care, chronic illness management and a variety of treatments and day surgeries at this new Centre.

Colour-coded lights can indicate room status to help maximize room use and reduce waits. Computers are in every room for quick access to records and information. Elder friendly modifications, including handrails, are throughout.

But not only will the Pattison Outpatient Centre increase health care capacity in Surrey and throughout the Fraser Health region, it was built with a focus on patient care, comfort and convenience.

Healing atmosphere Design inspiration came from the environment – the nearby Green Timbers forest and the sustainable approach required for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) gold status.

“This building will enable us to provide care for outpatients in a setting that was specifically designed for them,” said Peter Goldthorpe, Vice President of Capital Projects, Real Estate and Facilities for Fraser Health. “It represents a significant shift in how we will deliver care.”

As a result, the Centre is bright and welcoming with extensive use of wood in the décor and expansive windows that invite in natural light and views of trees and gardens. Other touches include stress-reducing sky ceilings in CT and MRI rooms and a non-denominational sacred space for quiet reflection.

The right services in the right space As you enter the window-lined lobby visitors can quickly orient themselves with the help of computer express check-in kiosks, reception staff, and clear, simple signage.

Equipped for the future With population growth and ongoing improvements in technology the Outpatient Centre can keep pace with advances thanks to built-in infrastructure, such as special shielding in rooms, and wiring and space for future equipment.

this Centre so that expansion will be significantly less expensive and disruptive to patient care,” noted Bill built, financed and will maintain the facility. The facility itself can expand by 30 per cent.

Volunteers keep the heart of the blood donation system pumping. by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com “I’m just A positive,” said Langley City resident Dale Miller. He said it’s a common blood type, nothing special. But to someone needing blood, his gift can be life saving. Miller has been donating for almost two decades, with about 60 donations under his belt. Despite there being a Canucks hockey game on that evening and it being one of the few sunny, warm days Langley experienced this

spring, the Murrayville Hall was enjoying a steady stream of traffic on April 26. For Miller, the reasons for donating are simple. “I’m healthy and I think I should be sharing it,” he said. “I think I should help.” Not only do Miller and his fellow donors help out, the clinics in Langley are also staffed by volunteers. They help with handing out juice and cookies to the blood donors once the needle has been removed and they’re relaxing. It’s a way for those who may have a fear of needles to offer a helping hand, and to aid in saving lives. continued on page A27…

Taekwondo

Athlete strives to be role model by Heather Colpitts

hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

One competitor at Creating Confidence 3, a taekwondo tournament hosted by Rahn’s Black Belt Academy last Saturday, came a long, long way to participate. Gabiba Beauchamp was at the tournament to which most of the participants weren’t old enough to drive themselves. The 54-year-old, who was born in South Africa, lives in Las Vegas and trains with a master in San Diego, has been doing the sport for about eight years. The day-long event at Langley Christian Middle and High School was a chance for Beauchamp to compete while visiting here for the impending birth of a grandchild. Beauchamp said she strives to be a role model for other athletes to show them that they can excel at the sport. “I want to be an example,” she said. Her passion for the sport has brought other members of her family into taekwondo. When asked what she liked about the sport, her reply was succinct – “Everything.” “It’s great focus and discipline, to keep you healthy,” she said. Saturday’s tournament attracted schools from B.C., Alberta, Washington State, and Oregon and featured forms, sparring, and weapons.

Walnut Grove Secondary School’s Grade 8 boys rugby team defended home turf against Abbotsford’s Eugene Reimer Middle School Tuesday. Above: the hometown Gators’ Chris Ramsden looked for a way past Eugene Reimer defenders. The very close, back and forth game ended in a 12-12 tie after regulation time, with Brendan Atchison and Tyler Anderson each scoring a try for Walnut Grove and Parker Ross tacking on a conversion. The teams went into sudden death overtime with Atchison going in for the winning try, lifting the Gators to a 17-12 victory.

Jake Weitzel and Shawn McDonald will meet for a third time on May 6. Two amateur boxers who are very familiar with each other will trade leather Friday at the Coast Hotel and Convention Centre. Shawn McDonald, 21, and 29-year-old Jake Weitzel will meet again for Weitzel’s B.C. COMBSPORT welterweight title in the highlight fight of Clash at the Cascades 8. The two have a win against each other, both via split decision, over the past year and this will be the tiebreaker. Dan Csaszar, an 18year-old super middleweight, has joined City Boxing, and is tentatively scheduled to compete. According to City Boxing trainer and manager Dave Allison, Csaszar may be the best young prospect in B.C. “If there were such a thing as a first-round draft pick in boxing to advance to the pros, Dan would be the guy,” said Allison, who noted that Csaszar is not yet ready for the professional ranks, but is close.

Fast Draw

Franks top gun

Nicole Franks was quick on the draw in Jamestown, California.

Twitchy trigger-fingered tumbleweed types brought their trusty firearms all the way from places like Quebec, Kansas, Colorado, California, and Aldergrove, to name a few, to the California State Fast Draw Championships. But it was Aldergrove’s gun-slinging gal, Nicole Franks, who fired the fastest shot of the shoot – which included both men’s and women’s fast draw artists – during the World Fast Draw Association’s first major fast draw contest of 2011. At contests such as this, all competitors must wear “western wear” and the two main styles of draw are the fanning method, and the thumbing method, or variations of each. Franks’ time to react, draw, and hit a target with a wax bullet, which was monitored by a modern electronic timer, was a “fan”-tastic .272 of a second, a mere thousands of a second off her fastest world record, a .267, shot using blanks in 2008. The spectators at this championship, held at

the gun club range in Jamestown, Calif., April 23-24, all held their breath as Franks got set to shoot, and she came out with a blazing .312 of a second, counting her reaction time to the signal start light, to outdraw and blast all others from the scoring board in that event. Not settled with merely being fast, Franks also won the women’s championship at this contest with her consistent shooting. Franks was joined by the men’s division winner, California’s Jon Wilson. At the WFDA banquet that weekend, buckles were presented to the top all-around gunslingers of 2010 by association chairman Dave Livingston of Oklahoma. The top all-around Canadians were Karen Robinson, rated fourth in the world in the Women’s Division, and Den Robinson, who took third place in the men’s rating of the WFDA in 2010. Aldergrove’s Bob Franks also placed in the ratings, at 13th place among the men, while Peggy Franks won the Hollywood division all-around top gun for the women’s division. • More online at www.langleyadvance.com, click on “Sports”

Mustangs’ era ends

…continued from page A29 “It was a different story in the second half as Cliff Avenue really just hung on. These kids are amazing as they never gave up. It was a great effort and we just came up a bit short.” This game marked the end of the Mustangs’ run in youth rep soccer. In the team’s six years of existence, it collected two provincial and three Coastal Cup titles, one runner-up to the Provincial Cup, two runners up to the Coastal Cup, and one third-place provincial final finish. The team’s accomplishments also gained it entry into such prestigious tournaments as the Las Vegas College Showcase and College Surf Cup in San Diego. Many Mustangs also played for Surrey WFC at the Super Y North American Finals in Tampa, Fla., where their squad finished third.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your energy and charisma step up a notch Sunday – conquer problems, seek solutions. Chase money Monday/Tuesday – and chase friends, contacts, information Wednesday/Thursday – luck accompanies you in both endeavours! Be home, pay attention to the needs of children, parents Friday/Saturday. Take a rest after a lucky, active week. Wishes can come true this week and next, especially in career and social arenas. But realize your career is changing deeply (and in many cases suddenly) over the next eight years: in-depth research, investment, power plays, secrets play a bigger role. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Chase ambitions, and the people who can grant them. You’ll be tested, but you’ll win an “A!” Rest Sunday, plan and prepare – but be careful with fire, hot irons and ethical/ legal temptations. Your energy and charisma soar Monday/Tuesday – get out and impress people, especially bosses, VIPs, parents and authorities. Chase money (e.g., ask for a pay raise, seek new clients) Wednesday/Thursday. These are four successful, satisfying days – by Friday/Saturday you’ll be ready to socialize, dream, wish and enjoy your optimism – though it will be a sober optimism. Until 2019, love succeeds! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A gentle, compassionate understanding flows over you. You might fall in love. Actually, someone is likely more impressed with you than vice-versa, Wednesday/Thursday. Still, you might fall in love. Something is working powerfully to change your life – it could be sex, could be finances, a move, a secret, an urge – Charlie Sheen is a Virgo, and a hero, because he is embodying the Virgo urge right now. Behind-scenes actions, government and administrative chores succeed Monday/Tuesday. Charge forth and chase a major goal Wednesday/ Thursday! Money needs care Friday/Saturday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Continue to chase money. This week is relatively smooth, unhurried. Sunday holds a few frustrations if you wander afield after outside goals or adventure. Instead, stay home, garden, repair, or soak up nature. Romance, creative surges, pleasure and beauty surge Monday/Tuesday – you’re a winner! Tackle chores Wednesday/Thursday, buy machinery, seek health cures, employment or employees – you’ll succeed. Relationships face the deep, slow pulling apart you’ve noticed in recent years, but Saturday shows the cure. The problem is your ambition: the cure is another’s – support it. Taurus April 20-May 20: Your energy, effectiveness and charisma rise nicely! Don’t expect everything, as you’re in the trough that comes just before the big luck wave swells. That trough lasts to June 4 – five more weeks. Then 53 weeks of great, life-changing luck begin! Don’t waste your present energy: you can solve problems that would usually stymie you, can accomplish unusual feats. Focus your abilities on solving whatever has held you back. The main thing: to clear the way for big, lucky things June onward. Home’s sweet, good Monday/Tuesday. Romance, creativity midweek. Work, Friday. A good week! Gemini May 21-June 20: Continue to rest, plan, pray, meditate. Be charitable, deal with government agencies, institutions. Wishes can still come true, but consider this: wishes that lead to freedom are much more viable than those that lead to depth, darkness, lust, security, investment. Soon, you will get a chance for these deeper things (June 2011June 2012) but over the entire rest of this decade, these deeper things will “disagree” with ethics, law, friendship, lighter laughter – and the lighter will win. This also means light romance will conquer deep romance. Buy nothing Sunday. Success, all week!

MISSION - LAKE FRONT starting from $78,800. 60 mins from Vancouver. Park Georgia Rlty Lisa Hughes • 604-931-7227

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Most trends/occurrences are split into two streams: open relationships, and the more private, behind-scenes interactions. E.g., you are meeting challenging but lucky people or bright, obvious opportunities – these can quickly turn to intimacy, mutual financial funding, investment, detective work, or lifestyle commitments. Look for friendship on the surface, bonding underneath. Soon, this “deeper side” will increase – and by June onward, for a year, it will grow very lucky. But for now, the luck resides in the meeting, the seeing, relocation, pursuing new horizons and opportunities. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: This month doesn’t exactly offer you the prize with a flourish of easy luck, but it does give you a real preview of the luck to come, June 2011to June 2012. The prize involves a relationship. It could be an opportunity in business, new life horizons, love/marriage, fame, contract negotiations. It will arise because you impress or please someone, because you’re diplomatic and focused on another’s needs and desires. (You’re an expert at that.) This week, study your ethics Sunday: right, wrong? Your ambitions meet luck Monday/Tuesday; your hopes meet “a friend” Wednesday/Thursday! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Lots of work faces you – you might as well plod through. Recent romantic, pleasurable, creative or child-oriented ventures remain active, lucky. The year ahead (starting in a week or two) will expand your duties, so pack in some last-minute pleasure and relaxation now, while you can. You might, in the six weeks ahead, stumble upon a creative work situation – grab it. A co-worker romance might develop. Cautious Sunday: traps exist. Wisdom, gentle love flow Monday/Tuesday. Be ambitious Wednesday/ Thursday – success accompanies you! Your mood’s happier than events, late week.

May 8 - 14, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: You’re riding a minor winning streak, but it’s good practice for the “big wave” that’s coming June 2011 through June 2012. That time will bring “benefits with responsibilities” in romance, creative projects, speculative ventures, pleasure, vacation, and children’s talents. These very things fill May, so enjoy life, relax and pursue love! A relationship gives you friction Sunday. Life’s depths, lust, finances, meet with luck Monday/Tuesday. Gentle love, understanding fill Wednesday/Thursday. You feel ambitious Friday/Saturday, but use a light touch if others react unexpectedly. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The focus lies on home, family, recuperation, nature, garden, soul, stomach, security, real estate, retirement, endings and beginnings. This period isn’t ultra-important at the moment, but it will become the source of your luck from June 2011 to June 2012. So keep your eyes open, your thoughts ticking. Chores might frustrate Sunday: proceed cautiously, especially around power tools. Relationships might be competitive Monday/ Tuesday, but they’re also lucky, even loving, so plunge in! Investments, debt, sex, intimate commitments, lifestyle changes proceed well Wednesday/Thursday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Romance has a few snags Sunday – go slow. Tackle chores or buy machinery,tools Monday/Tuesday.If unemployed,look for work, especially Tuesday afternoon. A whole grabbag of opportunities faces you Wednesday/Thursday. Go forth, seek, be curious, ask. Be diplomatic, too. Relationships surprise, reward. The news might disappoint in financial, health and/or sexual areas Friday/Saturday. Investments made Friday won’t work; those made Saturday might. Generally, this is a light, busy, smooth and satisfying week. Money’s still lucky in an income way, but not for long – act now! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014

Friday’s seven-bout show will also include Langley’s Darren Cooper and Aldergrove’s Luke Davies. Allison said on paper, this may be the highest quality boxing event yet for City Boxing’s Clash series. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. at the Coast Hotel and Convention Centre, next to Cascades Casino. Tickets are available at the door or at guest services at Coast Hotel and Convention Centre. All of the bouts are sanctioned by the British Columbia Combative Sports Association. ••• City Boxing’s talent pool is getting younger. “We are now able to offer [the sport to] younger athletes who

are interested in boxing,” Allison said. “We have some eight-yearolds coming along, and on the June 24 show there will be tyke boxing.” This is a program allowing for youngsters to box from the age of eight to 10. Also returning to the City Boxing fold is Sarah Pucek – now Sarah Lowry – who took a hiatus from the sport to get married. Lowry will be teaching an allwomen’s boxing class once a week, with an emphasis on fitness and recreation. This will also be considered a beginner’s class for anyone who wants to be part of the overall boxing program. City Boxing operates out of Revolution Gym on the Langley Bypass.
