Aldergrove equestrian Hawley Bennet-Awad has earned a spot competing in the 2012 Olympics in London. “It’s still just a little overwhelming,” she told the Langley Advance on Thursday afternoon. The 33-year-old was part of a four-person team that won silver in eventing, a sport that includes three tests (dressage riding, cross-country jumping, and show jumping), at the World Equestrian Games in Lexington, KY. Each test done by the rider and horse is scored individually, but added together for the final team result. “It was a huge, huge win for Canada,” Bennett-Awad said. “We were like the underdogs.” Canada was not expected to do well. The team members themselves were just hoping to get at least fifth place. Bennett-Awad and teammates Kyle Carter, Selena O’Hanlon, and Stephanie Rhodes-Bosch came second after Great Britain, but ahead of New Zealand. The finish qualifies Canada’s team for the Canadian Eventing competition for 2012. Bennett-Awad has had an Olympic dream since childhood, when she entered a Langley contest to be a torchbearer for the 1988 Olympics, which were in Calgary. At the 2010 Winter Olympics, she carried the torch in Richmond. She competed in the 2004 Summer Games in Athens, calling it a “learning experience.” “It was one of the best experiences of my life,” Bennett-Awad said. Now she’s earned the right to compete in the London Games. At this point, the four riders plan to compete.

A engaged couple is missing a ring, and asking the public to help them out. by Troy Landreville

Charles Dickens best summed up Jeff Moody’s night Sept. 24: “it was the best of times; it was the worst of times.” The 30-year-old Langley resident proposed to his girlfriend, 28-year-old Tanya Vanderhoek. And his proposal plan was quite elaborate. He had a limousine pick Tanya up from her job in Delta and take her to a nearby spa for the day. She was then driven, by the same limo, to the English Bay area, where Jeff popped the question to his live-in girlfriend of nearly four years (the couple purchased a home in Willoughby last year). The limo was then to transport the couple around Stanley Park, and then to a high end downtown hotel. There was only one snafu – the pricey engagement ring Jeff had painstakingly picked out and purchased from Spence Diamonds on Sept. 9, had vanished. “As we got there, the limo driver called Jeff as he was not there yet,” Tanya related. Jeff told the limo driver to continue driving Tanya around, as the ring he was about to propose with was gone. Jeff packed everything he needed for the night in his car. He placed the final item, the jewelry box and ring, in the front pocket of his suit jacket.

“It is such a horrible feeling,” Tanya said. “You try to keep yourself positive but it is very difficult.” Jeff has suffered through some sleepless night and frantic days, searching for the ring and wondering what had happened to it. “I have ripped apart cars, the house, everything,” he said. Jeff wanted to make sure Tanya had something on her finger so they ordered a new ring from Spence. “It was nice of them as they let me take the prototype to wear until my ring comes in,” Tanya said. These days, the couple has had little time to plan for a wedTroy Landreville/Langley Advance ding day. “It is financially difficult Tanya Vanderhoek, sitting beside her fiancé Jeff Moody, showed a prototype of her enough to plan a wedding, and engagement ring.

Newly inked deal is about how to fund transit by Heather Colpitts

How B.C. should fund public transit is the key to a new agreement signed by Premier Gordon Campbell and the TransLink Mayors’ Council. Campbell and Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, who chairs the council, signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to conduct long-term planning. TransLink’s biggest issue is finding

new sources of revenue to fund the existing system and any expansion. Vehicle levies, property taxes, a regional development cost charge, user pay in terms of tolls and fees are the kinds of methods being discussed. “You can’t pretend that someone doesn’t pay for it,” Campbell said. “People love taxes that they don’t have to pay; they just don’t like the taxes they have to pay. I think we have to be smart about this... I’m looking forward to the mayors’ con-

versations and I’m looking forward to the public conversations.” Fassbender said the MOU is part of a new effort to be more effective. “In the last year or so, we have stopped pitting one region against another,” he said. Langley Township Mayor Rick Green noted the public willingness to pay more taxes is reaching its limit. “There is going to be a public revolt,” Green commented.

Is it really over? The Canadian Cancer Society’s Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley rolled to its last stop on Friday. It was almost anticlimactic. We held our official closing ceremonies at White Rock Christian Academy, with speeches by local politicians, presentations to some of our support team members, and a video about why the team exists. Then, there was still a ride from South Surrey to the Canadian Cancer Society offices in Langley. We had beautiful weather: unseasonably warm for early October, no wind to speak of, and a cloudless sky that had us breaking out the sunscreen. As we turned onto Highway 10, Karen Cryer of the Langley RCMP announced that we were heading over the very last hill of the ride. There were a few cheers for that. A few kilometres later, after a quick stop at the Langley Advance offices, we propped out bikes together for the last time, exchanged hugs, and then greeted loved ones we hadn’t seen for, in some cases, nine days. I’d like to thank the riders and the Canadian Cancer Society for allowing me to cover this from the inside.

Motorcycle fatality

Surrey rider crashes Investigators spent much of the day Friday at the scene of a motorcycle crash that took the life of a 46-year-old Surrey man in the area of Highway 10 and 232nd Street. Shortly after 8 a.m. the Langley RCMP was called out to a report of a motorcycle crash. The RCMP’s Integrated Collision Analyst and Reconstruction Service was


called to the scene. “Initial investigation reveals the rider was eastbound and did not successfully negotiate the curve north, striking an embankment and an advertisement sign,” said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks. The investigation continues, but the Langley RCMP would like to hear from anyone with information that might assist the police in this case. People can contact the Langley detachment at 604-532-3200.

Domestic violence

Purple spotlights cause The local transition house society is asking people to shine a light on domestic violence. by Heather Colpitts



For a minimum donation of $2, you can show the community you want to stop domestic violence. The Ishtar Transition Housing Society has launched a colourful campaign. Purple Light Nights is running for the month of October and involves people using purple light bulbs in a porch light or in a lamp in a window.

Purple is the colour adopted for the effort against domestic violence. “The goal of Purple Light Nights is to remember domestic violence victims and give hope to those still living with abuse,” said Dorothy McKim, Ishtar’s executive director. People are being asked to buy a bulb at the Ishtar office, 6350 203rd St., or a local hardware store, and put it in a window or in their front porch light. More information about the campaign or Ishtar’s anti-violence programs and services is available at 604-534-1011. The society recently held elections at its 36th annual general meeting and has

some new faces on its board of directors. Joining the board are Laurie Leach, Rian Martin, and Darlene Blackhall. Three members left the board to pursue other activities: Shelley Henshaw, Jay Peebles and Pat Qualtrough. McKim said they made considerable contributions to the society. Board positions were also recently voted on. Michelle Hawco is president with the vicepresident’s spot going to Julie Toddington. Crystal Pudsey is treasurer and Janette Kovacs is secretary. Members at large include Terry Smith, Don Truscott, Jane Gladman, and Regula Baer.

Small business accomplishes large things All hail the small business. For the past four years, October has been set aside as Small Business Month in B.C. The aim is to raise awareness of the large role that small businesses play in the province’s economy – a role that, collectively, stands in marked contrast to the size of the individual players. For instance, there were nearly 400,000 small businesses operating in B.C. in 2009. According to B.C. government statistics, that represented a three per cent increase over 2008, despite the relatively unhappy global economic climate that prevailed last year. Nearly 60 per cent of jobs in the province’s private sector are provided through small business operations – that’s nearly six of every 10 people employed in the private sector throughout British Columbia. Furthermore, about one of every five workers in B.C. is self-employed, the highest rate of self-employment in Canada. The bottom line is that small businesses provide gainful employment to more than a million British Columbians. Langley City and Township, like communities throughout B.C., are home to hundreds of small businesses, and to the entrepreneurs who make them and the entire province’s economy plough through tough times and grow when the climate is more amenable. Those entrepreneurs are your next-door neighbours and your friends, and probably number among the members of your family. They keep B.C. – and the people who call this province home – working. They’re worth celebrating, and the small businesses they operation are worth promoting through October. – B.G.

Speed adds to cyclists’ peril A speed limit increase on Zero Avenue is a nonstarter. I am vehemently opposed to any such recommendation, as it would have unfavourable implications for cyclists. Zero Avenue is by no means a collector road. It’s a rural road with no shoulders, and because of its varied topography and pastoral surroundings where one can still hear birds sing, it is a favourite route for cyclists, whether recreational, fitness, or elite racers. This is the kind of road on which Svein Tuft, an elite cyclist representing Canada on the world stage, trained and still continues to train when he returns to his hometown of Langley. There are no special facilities for road cyclists to train on – we rely on roadways that are relatively quiet and offer a variety of terrain to challenge all the physical aspects of road cycling. And no, 16th Avenue just does not cut it, what with the exhaust fumes, road noise, etc. However, Zero Avenue has become hazardous because it is used as a commuter route by those who want to avoid

Zero Avenue

Dear Editor,



the more regulated 16th Avenue or by border crossers who sprint from one crossing to the other in anticipation of shorter lineups. Average speeds are more likely 80 km/h than the posted 50 km/h. The only time the speed limit is observed is when traffic slows down for the “supposed” traffic calming speed bumps at the major intersections. A few weeks ago I was almost hit head on by an impatient driver attempting to pass at great speed. He had to slam on his brakes and get back in behind the car he was attempting to pass. And it wasn’t as if he didn’t see me, because I wear clothing the brightness of which tends to make motorists’ eyes bleed. And no, the sun was not in his eyes either. And then he had the audacity of flipping me the bird. Go figure! How would increas-

ing the speed to 60 km/h on Zero Avenue reduce overall speeds and make it safer for cyclists? Increasing speed limits will only reduce the number of drivers caught exceeding the speed limit. It would do nothing for the safety of cyclists. Motorists have 16th Avenue as a commuter route. The number of places for cyclists to safely ride is being eroded as development pushes up the Fraser Valley. Putting wide shoulders alongside busy commuter roads may work for commuter cyclists, but is not the answer for others. We need more traffic speed enforcement, and signage advising drivers that Zero Avenue is recognized as a heavily used cyclist training/recreational route.

I live in Walnut Grove and work in the construction industry. A light train to commute would be the ideal.

Dear Editor, Ten years ago, I created the Spirit of the Horse Memorial Garden in Campbell Valley Regional Park. It has been a consolation for many people who lost their beloved horse friends, with now more than 300 remembered on bronze plaques, along with a few well-known horse people. A president of the Langley Horse Federation, I arranged annual fundraisers to pay for maintenance of the garden, and for new plants and bulbs. Maintenance of the garden was excellent, with horse people often returning to sit on the granite benches, remembering their wonderful friends. Recently, others assumed responsibility for the garden, thinking that I had done enough. They assured me of a continuation of the same high level of maintenance. Tragically, that did not happen. I apologize to all who purchased plaques over the past 10 years, for the sad state the garden now is in. The lawns have not been cut, and look like a field. Metro Vancouver Regional Parks took on the responsibility, directed by people who took over the Langley Horse Federation from me. However, it has not worked. The problem is being rectified. Joy Richardson, South Langley

More than 150 employees at Envision Financial swapped business suits for hair nets and aprons for the credit union’s fourth annual Day of Caring. This year’s campaign of giving back was based around food security. Between Sept. 20 and 24, staff helped at the 10 or so projects in the communities Envision serves. In Langley, those efforts included the Langley Seniors’ Resource Centre, the Langley Food Bank and the Salvation Army Gateway of Hope homeless shelter. Envision president Bev Brown noted that more than 600 families are registered with the food bank and Gateway serves more than 150 meals each day. “In 2009, Food Banks Canada reported an 18 per cent increase in food bank use across Canada, which is the largest year-over-year increase on record,” she added. “So it’s apparent that hunger and food security are critical problems in our community that need to be addressed. Envision is proud to do what it can to make a difference.” The credit union gets involved in communities through various means including scholarships, volunteering,

Paul Leppky, a consumer manager of product and segment at Envision, spent time at the Gateway of Hope homeless shelter kitchen. Clients were offered fruits, vegetables, salads, desserts, and breads to take with them after their meals. He said the most popular item requested was the fresh produce. charitable donations, and supporting community causes such as arts and culture and the environment. For Days of Caring 2010 staff sorted donations at the food bank, served hot meals at different facilities, and handed out bread, fruits, and vegetables at the homeless shelter.

Brown said Days of Caring helps Envision and its employees connect with the community. “At Envision, giving back to the community means more than just donating financially – we also believe in making a difference through our time and effort,” she said.

United Way

Staff scramble to fundraise Swaddled in all manner of cushioning, several eggs were put to the test, cracking up the assembled crowd. by Heather Colpitts

Apple of her eye

Troy Landreville/Langley Advance

Bella Sparrow, five, was the youngest volunteer helping out during the Heritage Apple Day hosted by Derby Reach/Brae Island Parks Association in partnership with Metro Vancouver Regional Parks. Saturday’s fifth annual celebration of the almighty apple at Derby Reach Regional Park included heritage apple displays and information, heritage and orchard tours, cider-making demonstrations, music, art, and finally, the always-popular apple-tasting table.

Langley Township staff showed their creativity and knowledge of engineering Sept. 28, when they fashioned fun but functional eggy contraptions. Just before lunchtime, Township staff were in a mad scramble to ready the drop zone for the deadly serious egg competition while nearby Township firefighters and RCMP tended the barbecue. The 14 contestants put eggs inside each contraption, and sent them all on a four-storey drop Tuesday as part of the Township’s annual fundraising campaign for the United Way of the Lower Mainland. Several heats were held as egg durability was sorely tested. Egg splatter on the tarp in the drop zone was testament to the contraptions that didn’t work. About 100 people

attended the barbecue and more turned out to watch the egg-citement. Tuesday’s fun raised just over $600. “The Egg Drop event was new this year and it went over so well,” said Township director of Finance Hilary Tsikayi, co-chair of the Township’s 2010 United Way Campaign. “The competitors, spectators, and organizers really got into it. It was a great way to raise money and awareness for the United Way,

Egg drop competitors (above) sent their contraptions sailing off the fourth floor deck of the Township Civic Facility as a crowd below watched and enjoyed a barbecue. Decorating his egg with a self portrait, Francesco Clarotto (left) hurled it off the roof of the Township Civic Facility numerous times during the egg drop competition and won third place honours.

while having a lot of fun.” Tsikayi said everyone was impressed with the imaginatively created gadgets that competitors used to cushion the fall. Balloons, foam, plastic bag parachutes, containers of all shapes and sizes, and other materials were used, and many of the eggs survived the fall. Any leftover eggs were sold with proceeds going to the United Way. Ultimately three staffers didn’t crack under pressure. The winners were Rod Morales in the IT department, Peter Taylor of long range planning, and Francesco Clarotto of developmental engineering. Morales won a gift certificate to Bedford House and will no doubt face coworkers’ brunch jokes about ordering the omelette. The Township’s United Way campaign this year also included a cakedecorating contest, swimming by donation, and fundraising boardwalk games and contests. Each year Township staff raise money for the United Way, with amounts raised averaging $30,000.

Economic Development manager Gary MacKinnon (right) congratulated Bob Andrews on being recognized for 25 years of service with the Township of Langley. MacKinnon and Andrews are part of the Township’s expanded and enhanced Economic Development department, and are using their knowledge and experience to encourage companies to come to the Township to do business. These are great foundations to build on, and we need to take advantage of the new assets that have been created.” As well, a new Economic Development Strategy is being contemplated by the Township’s Economic Development Advisory Committee, as the goals of the previous 2002 strategy have essentially been met, including establishment of Tourism Langley and creation of the Langley Circle Farm Tour, creation of industry-specific profiles, enhancement of the business section on the Township’s website at, and transformation of the economic development function from “reactive” to “proactive.” A new Economic Development Strategy


would be designed to continue to bring in commercial and industrial growth to support new residential development, MacKinnon said, and ensure that the Township remains a leader in industrial development. Another focus will be to create an identity that will help “brand” the Township. Videos that outline and promote the business and lifestyle advantages of locating in the community have recently been completed. “We’re here to help employers make their business location decision,” MacKinnon said. “We are confident that the Township of Langley will stand out as the best choice for all the right reasons.”

Tuft won’t be going to India Langley resident Svein Tuft will not be competing at the Commonwealth Games in Delhi. The Canadian Cycling Association has made two substitutions to the Canadian cycling team competing in Delhi, India, at the 2010 Commonwealth Games. For the men’s and women’s road race events, Svein Tuft will be replaced by Dominique Rollin and Alison Testroete will be replaced by Anne Samplonius. Tuft, a Langley resident and veteran Canadian team member, will also not be making the trip to Delhi. The collective decision was made by Canadian Cycling Association high performance director Jacques Landry, as well as Tuft, to forego Tuft’s participation at the Commonwealth Games after a “It has disappointing become performance by apparent Tuft in the time trial event at the that the UCI Road World weight of a Championships full season held in Melbourne, Australia. has caught Tuft was a solid up to him.” medal hopeful in the time trial in Jacques Landry Delhi. Although the Commonwealth Games are considered an important event by the Canadian Cycling Association, the association is also thinking of Tuft’s prospects at the London 2012 Olympic Games. “Svein’s presence will be missed in Delhi, although we have a solid replacement in Dominique Rollin,” said Landry. “Given Svein’s ride in Melbourne, it has become apparent that the weight of a full season has caught up to him and he is in dire need of a mental and physical rest. A medal in London depends on Svein being competition ready.” ••• Testroete recently sustained injuries and was admitted to surgery in a hospital near the city of Lucca, Italy, while training for her Commonwealth Games berth. Testroete hit a car that braked suddenly in front of her, resulting in injuries to her jaw. Though she is out of harm’s way, Testroete will now require time to recover from her injuries.

University women’s soccer

The Trinity Western University Spartans women’s soccer team has fallen on hard times. The Spartans have now gone three matches without a victory after losing 2-1 to the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades Sunday at Bateman Park in Abbotsford. The loss drops the nationally No. 4-ranked Spartans to 5-2-1 on the season, while the victory gives the Cascades six points on the weekend – after they blanked UBC 2-0 Saturday afternoon – to improve to 3-3-0. The Spartans are tied for second place in Canada West, while the Cascades sit in sixth spot. The two teams battled back and forth through much of the first half, with TWU putting continued pressure on the UFV defenders. The Cascades counterattacked in the 40th minute to score the opening goal off the foot of Danielle Schmidt.

Trinity Western University’s Becca Ferguson went up high, behind University of the Fraser Valley’s Maria Verbenkov, to put a head on the ball during Canada West women’s soccer action Sunday in Abbotsford. The UFV Cascades edged the Spartans 2-1. The Spartans countered immediately and almost tied the match when Colleen Webber’s shot went off of the far post in the 45th minute, allowing the Cascades to enter the break with the 1-0 lead. During the second half, the Cascades played tremendous defence, holding off the Spartans’ offence. With five minutes remaining, UFV was

awarded a free kick outside of TWU’s box. UFV’s Caitlin Blondin’s shot bounced over TWU ’keeper Kristen Funk’s head and into the net, giving UFV a two-goal lead. The Spartans then went right back to work and played with a sense of urgency that seemed to be lacking from early play. After a scrum in front of the Cascades’ net, TWU

forward Nikki Wright beat UFV ’keeper Chantelle Biagioni to put Spartans on the board in the 88th minute. Trinity Western had one last opportunity to tie the game but Fraser Valley held on for the victory. TWU’s Funk made eight saves in the loss, while UFV’s Biagioni made 12 saves in the victory. Next up for the Spartans is the home series of the two-week, home-andhome with the University of Victoria and Fraser Valley. The Spartans play the Vikes Friday and Cascades Saturday. Both matches kick off at 5 p.m. at TWU’s Rogers Park. TWU men’s soccer The Spartans lost for the first time on home soil this year, after being blanked 4-0 by the visiting Alberta Golden Bears at Rogers Park Saturday. In a game that saw both teams generate quality offensive opportunities, it was the Golden Bears that were simply the better finishers, as they improved their Canada West-leading record to 7-1-0 while the Spartans saw their mark drop to 3-2-2.

Chiefs roll to road wins by Troy Landreville

With Thanksgiving just around the corner, the Langley Chiefs have much to be thankful for. A pair of weekend road victories extends Langley’s win streak to four games, and pushes their record to 7-1-02, tops in the British Columbia Hockey League’s Coastal Conference. Saturday at the Coquitlam Sports Centre, the Chiefs scored the final two goals of the game to win 4-2. A powerplay goal from Langley’s Matt Ius with 1:24 to play in the second period snapped a 2-2 tie. Ius’s goal ended up being the game winner. Chiefs captain Trevor Gerling scored an insurance marker, also on a Langley man advantage, at the 9:11 mark of the final period to round out the night’s scoring. The teams were tied 2-2 after 20 minutes. Mason Blacklock and Josh Myers scored first-period goals for the Chiefs. “We’ve proven that we can score a lot of goals, but we need to prevent them,” Chiefs associate coach Barry Wolff said. “We just battled together and played as a team. It was a total team effort.” Chiefs goaltender Wyatt Galley was named first star of the game. He shut out the Express in the second and third periods and was especially sharp during a final stanza in which the Express outshot the Chiefs 10-3. Galley is tied with Salmon Arm’s Kris Moore for the league lead in goaltender wins with seven. Chiefs 9, Merritt Centennials 5 Normally, when you give up five goals in a game, you’re going to end up on the

losing end of the score. Not in the case of the Chiefs, who fired nine pucks into the Merritt Centennials’ net Friday at Merritt’s Nicola Valley Arena. The Chiefs scored six unanswered goals on 11 shots in the second period to take a 9-3 lead into the final frame. At the other end of the rink, the Centennials took 13 shots on Galley and he stopped every single one of them. Ius and Stan Smrke each scored twice for the Chiefs in the middle frame. Mike Tebbutt, with his second of the night, and defenceman Tim Daly had Langley’s other goals. Up by six, the Chiefs let their foot off the gas pedal in a third period in which they were outshot 12-7 and out-scored 2-0. The teams entered the first intermission tied 3-3. The Chiefs jumped out to a 2-0 lead on goals by Tebbutt and Brandon Thompson before the Centennials stormed back to tie the game. The Chiefs’ Myers and Merritt’s Max Vallis, with his second of the period, exchanged goals to round out the first-period scoring. Merritt outshot Langley 37-30 overall. Ius and Tebbutt led the Chiefs with two goals and one assist apiece. Myers scored once and added three helpers, while Daly chipped in with a goal and two assists. Smrke scored twice. “We had a slow first period and then in the second period we exploded offensively,” Wolff said. The Chiefs hit home ice Thursday when they host the Surrey Eagles at the Langley Events Centre. Opening faceoff is 7 p.m. After that, they host Coquitlam Saturday at the LEC, also at 7 p.m.
