Some will wipe away a tear. Some will pose for the cameras while chomping down on their sports medals. However the young athletes at the 2010 BC Summer Games (July 22-25) chose to celebrate earning a medal, it wouldn’t be possible without the army of volunteers that has worked for months to make sure those moments will be picture perfect. Someone after all, has to ensure there is a podium for the winners to stand on, flags as a backdrop, and the correct music to play when medals are presented. Volunteers posing as winning athletes, other volunteers – who will help ensure the medals are distributed with appropriate dignity – and Games officials gathered at the Langley Events Centre on Thursday evening to hold medal presentation rehearsals. The gathering allowed everyone involved to see how the awards ceremonies are supposed to play out and to ask questions. That included the volunteer photographers who will be at every sporting and Games event to capture the action and excitement. The run-through is part of the behind-thescenes preparations for the Games, which are being held here in Langley later this month.

Each aspect of the games relies on volunteers, right up to the board of directors. But more people are needed if Langley is going to pull off a successful Games. “If we could get another 1,000 volunteers, we’d be cooking with gas,” said Michael Jackstien, Township of Langley BC Summer Games’ president. Organizers hit the 2,000 volunteer mark at the end of last week. “We’re still short,” Jackstien said. “But I’m told this is normal... I’m told it’s typical at these Games that a great rush of volunteers come at the end, in the last week or two.” He has his fingers and toes crossed that more people will step up to the plate. “The Games will come off. I’m not overly concerned that we’re going to have enough volunteers, but more bodies sure would be appreciated.” The more people who volunteer, the lighter the load for everyone. People can help out as much as they are available. Volunteers are not required to commit for all four days of the Games, but are asked to contribute a minimum four-hour stint. Shifts typically run four to six hours. Most often the volunteers are put into areas where they already have some skills, such as first aid or food prep, but people

can express their volunteer preferences when they sign up on the Games website ( The BC Games Society and the local directors and chair people have information and training materials that set out expectations for various tasks – lessons gleaned from previous BC Games. Some volunteer areas of most need include people willing to be at the dorms (schools) where the athletes and coaches sleep.

There have been a few hiccups, as is to be expected in an event of this magnitude, Jackstien said. “Financially, we’re okay. The Friends of the Games has been successful in raising cash and in-kind contributions. I do believe that everything, besides not having the volunteers we hoped for, are going along okay. I think the volunteers is really the issue.”

Murder case goes to jury What’s online Only one conclusion can be drawn in the murder trial of Davey Butorac, Crown counsel said in his summation Monday.

Her employer, the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce, recently honoured her for her 25 years as chamber manager. So Lynn Whitehouse thought the hoopla was over. Then chamber president Milt Kruger and Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender cajoled her into coming to the July 5 council meeting. They said it was about issues vital to the chamber but it was to honour her. • More online

Teachers’ union seek MLA help The Langley Teachers’ Association isn’t taking the summer off. by Heather Colpitts

The union representing teachers in the local public schools finally got to sit down with a local MLA. The Langley Teachers’ Association has been asking for months to meet with Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA


Rich Coleman and Langley MLA Mary Polak, and for them to become more vocal about local education. The Langley School District is tackling a $13.5-million debt/deficit. On June 29 the LTA finally met with Polak. “We wanted to inform Ms. Polak, Minister of Children and Family Development and Minister Responsible for Child Care, of the specifics of the $7 million in proposed cuts in services to Langley students effective this September,”

said LTA president Susan Fonseca. “We were hoping she would acknowledge the impact these cuts will have on children in her constituency and provide some hope to restore these services.” The LTA also met with the Auditor General’s office recently to find out more about its role as the new auditor for the Langley district. Langley is one of five districts in the province that have hired the Auditor General’s office as its financial auditor.

Beating the heat With temperatures soaring, Langley City firefighters took a group of local employees through a fire extinguisher safety course. Capt. Dave Sanders taught the crew the theory of extinguishers, including what type of device works best on what type of fire, storage, and proper maintenance. Then it was time for practical experience. Shruti Patel of Point West Partners came with several co-workers, and was coached by firefighter Bob Perry (left) while dousing flames on the firefighters’ training ground.

Tennis club will run new courts

Tennis courts are coming to Willoughby, the latest sports facility to be created near the LEC. by Matthew Claxton

Langley Township will get its first covered tennis courts, possibly as early as this fall, through a partnership with a local tennis club and the school district. The $250,000 project will see the Township build four outdoor-style courts at the Willoughby Community Park, near the Langley Events Centre. The Langley Community Tennis

Association (LCTA) will then have the courts covered with a fabric roof, and will manage the courts for up to seven years. Plans for the facility have been in place in Willoughby since at least 2007, but were intended to be one of the last things built. There was no funding set aside this year to finish the courts, said David Leavers, the Township’s head of parks and rec. The partnership will speed up building. LCTA has about 50 members, and is dedicated to improving opportunities for tennis players young and old, novice or veteran. Once finished, the courts will also be available for use by the public, as well as students in the school district.

Thieves confused by bait car

July 14, 15, 16, 19 & 20

A pair of bait truck thieves didn’t know what they were getting into, until police rolled up.

It’s more embarrassing to have a hearing loss than to wear hearing aids.

It wasn’t a good night for a boyfriend and girlfriend truck thief duo. Just before midnight Thursday night, a man took the bait, and decided to steal a bait truck in the Willoughby area of Langley, said Sgt. Gord Elias, spokesman for the Integrated Municipal-Provincial Auto Crime Team (IMPACT). The RCMP’s Air One helicopter was instantly alerted, and deployed to observe the suspect in action, he explained. “Once the truck was moving, the Air One helicopter crew quickly realized that the stolen bait truck was being followed by another pickup truck,” Elias said. However, the suspect didn’t notice the helicopter above him. Patrol members from the Langley RCMP

were called in to assist on the ground pursuit, and the bait truck’s engine was remotely disabled. Even after his engine suddenly died, the suspect did not realize he was driving a bait truck. When police moved in, the man was looking under the hood of the truck, searching for the problem. The second truck, which stopped behind the disabled bait truck, turned out to have been stolen recently from Whistler and was being driven by the man’s girlfriend. She, too, was arrested without incident. Several charges are now being recommended against the 34-year-old man and the 42-year-old woman, both of no fixed address. “Live video and audio feed from the bait truck and the thermal imaging camera in the Air One helicopter proved to be too much technology for these car thieves,” Elias said.

RVers pleased bylaw under review

Untreated hearing loss has many consequences Living with untreated hearing loss means difficulties in conversations with others, social gatherings, and perhaps lost performance at work. Not seeking help for your hearing loss, you are missing out on enjoying all that life has to offer.

Langley Township will take another look at a bylaw that forbids homeowners from parking RVs, boats, or trailers in their front driveways. Frank Holmstrom, one of two Aldergrove men gathering signatures on a petition, sent a letter asking for changes to the council. Councillor Bob Long called for Township staff to look into the matter, and to compare the Township’s rules with the rules of

other nearby communities. Holmstrom and his neighbour both have RVs they keep in their driveways, but neither man has a yard wide enough to drive their vehicles behind or to the sides of their homes. Holmstrom said he wasn’t even aware of the rule about driveways until a bylaw officer visited his home recently. Storage costs about $100 a month, Holmstrom said.

With the fate of Aldergrove Lake in jeopardy, Township council has asked Metro Vancouver to consult publicly on the future of the park. Councillor Charlie Fox suggested the idea last Monday, asking Metro Vancouver Parks to host an open house for Aldergrove residents. Fox wants to see the park’s users give input on future plan options. Metro Vancouver is expected to make a final decision on the swimming hole in Aldergrove Lake Regional Park later this month. The 40-year-old concrete-lined swimming hole is leaking, and is increasingly expensive to repair and maintain. Metro Vancouver Parks is considering building a new lake as wilderness habitat, but the idea is at an early stage.

Criminal minds not very sharp A couple of suspected car thieves are on their way to a court date, courtesy of a bait car sting last week. The boyfriend and girlfriend (driving trucks that matched – both stolen) don’t seem to be the honour students of crime. The man drove off in a bait truck. He was tailed by the Air One police helicopter, but apparently failed to notice the sound of the rotor blades above his head. Suddenly, the truck’s engine died. Did he put two and two together? No. Instead, he got out and tried to fix the truck, and was looking under the hood when the Langley RCMP pulled up and arrested him and his girlfriend. High school guidance counsellors don’t recommend “criminal” as a field of endeavour. But if people are making a conscious choice to become crooks, it seems to be made only by those who aren’t capable of much else. The police are full of stories about criminals whose plans seem to be less than well thought out. The burglar from Brookswood spotted running across a busy street, cradling a TV in his arms. The armed robbers who look, unmasked, directly at the security cameras. More than a decade ago, a couple of thieves managed to literally knock over a Langley ATM. They smashed it off its base with a stolen pickup truck, loaded it up, and took off, the police in hot pursuit. The crooks even got away – but not before the ATM, unsecured, had slid right out the back of the truck and onto the road. Crime seems like easy money. But becoming a crook seems to indicate a lack of ability to plan at all. Which should be a comfort to the rest of us. – M.C.

Fade from bright in a heartbeat those breezy summer days that seems to make the whole world smile. It was the kind of day that makes children dance out of the sheer lightness of being. Often on such days, we’d remove the spring Bob Groeneveld from the old wood-and-glass front door and prop it open. With the back door open as well, the fresh air would waft gently through the entire place, lifting spirits to the point where, “Were you born in a barn?” sometimes, you could feel full to bursting.

Put trustees’ votes on record


Businesses don’t understand tax

Dear Editor, The HST inception is being badly handled for introduction to small businesses. Many of them are confused and don’t know how to bill their customers. I was at a restaurant with my wife and friends. When the bill was presented, it showed a 12 per cent tax charge for both our food and the wine, plus and additional 10 per cent alcohol tax on the wine. I questioned the server, who said that is the way it is set up on the computer, so it must be right.

I pointed out there should only be 12 per cent HST for the total bill, and no alcohol (sales) tax. Her supervisor was skeptical but did adjust the bill. She said she phoned some other restaurants and they said they were doing the same thing. What has the provincial government been doing when business does not have guidelines for acting as their tax collectors? Larrie Connell, Langley [Note: A fuller version of this letter and others are online at]


What are Township permit fees for?

Dear Editor, One day I noticed flooding in my front yard flower bed. It seemed to have been under water for awhile. I called the Township and they determined it was a leak on my side of the

water valve, so they said it was my problem. Luckily, it was also on my side of my (water meter) valve, so I could turn it off without paying the Township $100 to turn off the valve.


Holiday children lack respect

Dear Editor, This morning, my family and I woke up to find my car in my driveway kicked in – not just a little dent, but a huge imprint that has even caused the paint to fall off. I live in a very quiet, child-friendly neighbourhood in Walnut Grove, and it sickens me to believe that the adolescents are going around at all hours of the night, kicking in people’s personal property to amuse themselves. Not only was my car kicked in, but my dad’s yard waste was littered all over the ground, including broken glass. I realize it is now summer holidays and these kids are restless, but parents should make sure they know where their children are during the night, and encourage them to behave and respect other people’s properties. Chantelle Mathison, Walnut Grove

After days of digging, I found the leak: it was 40 inches below the surface. The actual repair consisted of a 3/8 turn on the compression fitting! When I asked the engineering department about the fittings, I was told those fittings “are never buried.” If the permit requires that they should not be buried, then the permit process should including making sure they are not buried. Since the Township collects large fees, if there is a problem (in violation of code), then they should handle it instead of passing it to the new owner. The house is only four and a half years old. If anyone wants information on where to dig if they have a leak, email me at Peter Springer, Langley

G8/G20 Summits

Offended letter-writer missing basic point

Dear Editor, Jeff Waddell [Police critique utter garbage, July 9 Letters, Langley Advance] claimed that my letter on police abuse [G20 paints bleak picture, July 6 Letters, Advance] was “utter garbage” and that it offended him that it was published. Perhaps he missed the point: I was pointing out abuses that have not even been mentioned in the mainstream media. Mr. Waddell could look into Ms. Amy Miller of Alternative Media Centre and Jesse Rosenfeld of the UK’s Guardian publication. Both have filed official complaints with the Ontario police oversight agency. It was also claimed that male officers strip-searched female protesters and

many women were touched inappropriately, including under-age girls who were “traumatized.” Amnesty International has called for a public inquiry. Mr. Waddell and others who think the police can do no wrong should stop “baaing” like good sheep and do a simple YouTube search.

Has the District Parent Advisory Council publicly supported her? Has the Langley Teachers’ Association? CUPE?

Seventy Years Ago

JULY 11, 1940

• The Milner Unit of the Defence League asked council to fix the parade grounds (formerly Langley’s fairgrounds) by filling in ruts left by municipal trucks. • The municipal engineer’s work was hindered by passport requirements to

cross the American border, especially in regard to ditching along the international border.

Sixty Year Ago

JULY 13, 1950

• Mosquitoes in Fort Langley were blitzed in an aerial DDT attack. The spray, conducted by Skyway Air Services of Langley, was

Thirty Years Ago

JULY 14, 1960

• The first major traffic disruption from the construction of the new freeway came without notice, when Coghlan Road (256th Street) was closed and a huge swath was cut through it.

JULY 16, 1980

• Plans for a multi-milliondollar shopping centre and restaurant-hotel-motel complex were unveiled with an announcement that Langley City had sold 34 acres of the Dumais farm to a development corporation.

Twenty Years Ago

• Township council endorsed plans to have the municipality declared a Provincial

JULY 11, 1990

• Continuing high water in the Fraser River resulted

in so many mosquitoes that Fort Langley residents asked the Township to start spraying them. • The province gave Langley Township nearly half a million dollars to fix up Langley Municipal Airport. The money was in no way tied to expansion plans that council had defeated in a tie vote a week earlier.

Ten Years Ago

JULY 11, 2000

• Langley hosted the 2000 B.C. Games for Athletes With A Disability. • Langley MLAs Lynn Stephens and Rich Coleman were balking at the NDP government’s proposed “se-

cure care” legislation which would give police and authorities the power to take drug-abusing, prostituting, and homeless children off the streets and place them in 72-hour rehabilitative care. • After three months of stalling, TransLink refused to give Langley Township council an accounting of its gas tax, saying the whole thing was too complex to put into words.

JULY 14, 2000

• Eleven fire trucks were called to South Langley to deal with a mushroom barn fire that burned through the night.

Visitors to Critter Care Wildlife Society’s open house over the weekend got an upclose look at some of its furry residents including (right) Tulip, a 10-week-old female raccoon who nuzzled up to intern Lisa Kril. Tulip is one of 15 orphaned raccoons residing at Critter Care. Another of Critter Care’s critters is eight-week-old blacktailed fawn Leonardo, who was found wandering through a blueberry farm in Pitt Meadows back in May. Donations to the South Langley wildlife rehabilitation centre during its open house this past Saturday and Sunday will help Critter Care in its treatment, care, and release of sick, injured, and orphaned native mammal species.

Flippers take water polo plunge by Troy Landreville

A Canadian Olympian has taken the reins of the Langley Flippers’ new water polo program. Flippers coach Kevin Mitchell, who played for Team Canada’s water polo team at the 2008 Games in Beijing, is welcoming newcomers to the team, which last saw action at the Haney Neptunes annual tournament on Canada Day.

I have many fond memories of Empire Stadium — unfortunately my fondest memory, my first time at Empire Stadium, has nothing to do with the BC Lions. The first time I set foot inside Empire Stadium was on Saturday, Nov. 26, 1960, for the 48th annual Grey Cup Game. In 1960 I was 10 years old, and this was the first time that I attended a professional football game. It was the first time that I attended any professional game. The Ottawa Rough Riders defeated Edmonton 16 to 6 to become the 1960 Grey Cup champions, and Ron Stewart of the Ottawa Rough Riders was the Grey Cup’s most valuable player. I can still remember some of the players’ names: Russ Jackson, Jackie Parker, Johnny Bright, Normi Kwong, and Vic Chapman. Before the game there was the Grey Cup parade. My dad was a sea cadet officer with the Captain Vancouver Corps in Stanley Park and the cadets were part of the parade. I was seated in an area with some friends of my dad and watched the parade. As I watched the parade it was like waiting for Christmas morning; I couldn’t wait to get to Empire Stadium. Finally the parade ended and my dad, still in uniform, got me and we went to the game.

Sharon Doucette/Canwest News

BC Lions coach Wally Buono (right) presented Ray Crawford of Delta with tickets to the Lions’ July 10 home opener against Saskatchewan at Empire Field. Crawford also won two BC Lions jerseys, a parking pass, and a pre-game tour along the sidelines. Arriving at Empire Stadium the sounds, smells, and the entire goings-on put my head on a pivot, for I did not want to miss any of this first-time experience. We waited in line with our tickets and then waited in line at the concession stands. Stocked up with hot dogs, Coke and peanuts, we walked through the small tunnel entrance and for the first time I could see Empire Stadium from the inside. Both teams were on the field warming up. Punters were punting, kickers were kicking field goals, quarterbacks were throwing to receivers, linemen were going over their blocking techniques and there was just so much to watch at one time. I had been to a three-ring cir-

cus but this was so much more. As I recall we were seated on the west side, near the end zone close to Hastings Street. I sat watching all the players on the field and calling out there’s Jackie, there’s Johnny, and I think I see Normi Kwong. My dad handed me a hot dog but I couldn’t eat I was in such trance I could not take my eyes of the field or the players… My eyes never left the field… I loved everything about it. I wanted nothing to change. To me, football had to be played in this way in this stadium. Over the years there were many times I visited Empire Stadium… the continuation of a tradition.

Weekly Report Souvenir sales

A percentage of souvenir sales goes back to the local committee. by Roxanne Hooper

Souvenirs are Jennifer Johnson’s area of expertise. Afterall, her day job is running the recently renovated gift shop at the Fort National Historic Site. So when the long-time Fort Langley resident was approached to chair the souvenirs committee for the BC Summer Games, the avid lacrosse enthusiast said it was the most natural fit in the world. Since she first heard that her hometown of Langley was going to be playing host to the BC Summer Games – which she’d been involved in twice before through minor lacrosse – she dusted off her Games hat and insisted to anyone who would listen that she was going to be involved somehow. Well, someone must have been listening, because about eight months ago now, she was specifically asked to head up the retail component of the BC Summer Games efforts. “I was so excited when I got asked. I couldn’t have asked for a better spot for me,” she said. Working with other committees and the Richmond-based Wilson International – the official souvenir supplier for BC Games – Johnson began ordering immediately after the Olympics. Keeping the selection simple, she put in for a series of garments that would brandish the local

Roxanne Hooper/Langley Advance

A team of volunteers with the Township of Langley’s BC Summer Games modelled the souvenir clothing available. John Leckman (back left) modelled the navy T-shirt and ball cap, while committee chair Jennifer Johnson sported a white T-shirt and (her favourite) a green Games jacket available only for ladies. She was accompanied by Melissa Lonneberg, who showed off the navy hoodie, while Games president Michael Jackstien (back right) wore his white polo shirt. Melanie Themmen (front) modelled what’s being called a grey grunge shirt that is expected to be most popular with the younger crowd. Games name and/or logo. Then, since the stock arrived at the end of March, Johnson has made it her mission – with the aid of several committed volunteers – to attend as many community events as possible in efforts to sell the items. The ensemble includes three higher-priced keep-

sakes, a white polo shirt, a green ladies jacket, and a navy hoodie. These items are proving incredibly popular with the mature supporters and volunteers, Johnson said, older adults who don’t like wearing T-shirts and may have more discretionary money to spend. Also available for fans

are a series of three Tshirts – a white, navy, and grey (this one boasts a grunge-like design), as well as navy ball caps that can be purchased for only $20. While many athletes, officials, family members and volunteers are expected to snatch up the items as keepsakes of the event, Johnson said there’s an added bonus to purchasing the Games garments – especially ahead of time. All sales made prior to this Friday, July 16 – including those online or at the Games office – will generate between 15 and 40 per cent of the sale price for the local committee. None of the souvenirs will be available for sale between July 17 and July 21, Johnson noted. But during the four days of the Games, Wilson International will have sales kiosks set up behind the grandstand at McLeod Athletic Park, and in the back parking lot of the Langley Events Centre, to sell more. Admittedly, Johnson said, when Wilson takes over selling on the final four days, the percentage of proceeds for the local Games committee diminishes to only 10 per cent – across the board. Another bonus, she explained, is that if any stock is left over afterwards, the local Games committee is not on the hook for its cost. The garments are on display and available for sizing at the Games office, on the second floor of the LEC until Friday. The office is set up to take payments of cash, debit, or Visa and MasterCard.
