This is ‘not NDP country’

BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

Chilliwack is not NDP country. That was John Martin’s message Tuesday evening after he was elected BC Liberal MLA for Chilliwack by a surprisingly large margin. Martin took 48 per cent of the approximately 19,500 ballots cast in Chilliwack, 17 points more than his closest challenger, New Democrat Patti MacAhonic. “With all due respect to Adrian Dix, Chilliwack is not NDP country,” Martin said at the Liberal campaign celebration at the Best Western. “The Fraser Valley is not NDP country and

Laurie Throness and John Martin ride provincial wave of Liberal support to easily win local ridings British Columbia is not NDP country.” Martin’s victory in a long-held BC Liberal riding came alongside a win by fellow Liberal Laurie Throness in Chilliwack-Hope. Throness lost to Gwen O’Mahony and the NDP in last April’s byelection by about 1,500 votes. Tuesday, he turned the tables, garnering more than 9,500 votes, or 49 per cent of the approximately 19,300 ballots. O’Mahony, who served as Chilli-

wack-Hope MLA for 13 months after her 2012 win, received approximately 6,900 votes or 36 per cent. In victory, Throness said he was proud and humbled. He said when he decided he wanted to get into politics in 1984, he asked long-time Chilliwack Socred MLA Harvey Schroeder for advice. “He said ‘I have one question for you: can you handle disappointment?’” Throness recalled. “And I said ‘sure no problem.’ And so I proceed-

Parents angered by decision not to fund early French immersion BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

L

ocal parents who have been lobbying the Chilliwack school district for an early French immersion program for almost two years were devastated Tuesday when the school board voted against starting a program any time soon. “I don’t even know what to say,” said Jocelyn Thomas, president of the local chapter of Canadian Parents for French, a group she and other parents formed in October to demonstrate their commitment to EFI in Chilliwack. “It’s very disappointing.” Local parents had been pressing the district for EFI since September 2011. In January 2012, the board directed staff to conduct a feasibility study, and after a three-month delay, the board saw that study in February. It recommended starting a program no earlier than 2014, but on Tuesday the board defeated a motion to start it in 2014. The projected cost of the program would be $578,035 in the first year and $3.9 million over the next five years, according to figures presented by superintendent Evelyn Novak. A majority of trustees said they supported an EFI program “in principle,” but added that now was not a good time to spend that much extra money. “We are $200,000 short right now in the very early budget numbers that we have seen,” Trustee Doug McKay said. “This would add $600,000. So that $800,000. That’s not what if; that’s real.” McKay said he had listened to the parents but that it was his job as

Water rising, T but no flooding

he Fraser River is not expected to pose a major flooding danger, despite a rapid rise caused by warm weather and heavy rain. The BC River Forecast Centre has predicted the river will peak this weekend with a flow rate of around 10,000 cubic metres per second at Hope.

grams that this decision would have,” she said. But parents say the district would also get extra funding from students coming into the district for EFI—money that they will now lose because of Tuesday’s decision. “It’s not like because they’re not implementing French immersion that we’re going to stay in the district and go through English,” Thomas said. “We’re not. We’re going to seek out another district that has French. So it’s definitely a loss for them now.” Besides the cost, trustee McKay, Barry Neufeld and Martha Wiens also argued it was premature to approve EFI in 2014 without first getting a chance to see next year’s budget. But when trustee Heather Maahs introduced a motion to defer the decision until after the budget was presented (something that is scheduled to happen later this month), Neufeld and McKay helped vote her motion down. “That’s insane,” said Thomas. “They gave the excuse that it wouldn’t be financially feasible and that was the reason why they said no, but they wouldn’t wait until they actually saw the numbers.” Two trustees who argued for starting EFI in 2014 were trustee Maahs and board chair Walt Krahn. “I have faith that we can do this,” Krahn said. “We will be taking students from within our district. It’s not as though these folks do not come with funds.” Maahs likened starting up an EFI program to having a baby. “There’s never just the right time,” she said. “I think we need to take a step out and start with two classrooms and see what happens.” In the end only Maahs and Krahn voted for starting EFI in 2014. McKay, Neufeld and trustee Silvia Dyck voted against, and Wiens abstained. ◗Visit www.sd33.bc.ca and look for the May 12 agenda under Board of Education menu.

No regrets, and if I had a chance to do it all over again, I’d do it just the same way.” She added that even in defeat, she felt the NDP has “one orange foot in the door in Chilliwack-Hope.” “I believed in the message of change for the better, and I’m here to say this province needs change for the better, and we’re not going to stop,” she said.

Poll-itical nightmare BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

ew Democrats may be licking their wounds after Tuesday’s stunning election loss, but another group of folks might be questioning their very existence. Pollsters are on the defensive this week as they got things very, very wrong in the B.C election. Early in the campaign the NDP was given as much as a 20-point lead, a lead that appeared to have shrunk to as few as four points before election day. But every poll still predicted an NDP victory.

At the BC Liberal party Tuesday, the mood was extremely tense as the first results came in, but as poll after poll reported there were cheers and excitement. From the very first reports, the party held a lead. Even staunch supporters admitted they were surprised to hold on to that advantage so strongly across the province. And as a measure of how close things were leading up to Tuesday’s results, Throness said he wrote three speeches: “I wrote a government victory speech. I wrote an opposition victory speech. And I wrote a concession speech.” See POLLS, Page 6

Witness testimony allowed BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

A

Supreme Court justice has ruled that the testimony of several witnesses and a crumpled eviction notice can be admitted as evidence in the murder trial of Steven Kenneth Frederickson. Frederickson is on trial for second degree murder in the December 2010 killing of his roommate Robert-Jan Planje. Frederickson’s lawyer, Ken Beatch, contested the admission of several statements as being hearsay, which is usually not allowed to be used as evidence at trial. Hearsay is the report of one person’s words by another person. JusticeWilliam Grist, though, ruled that most of the statements could be admitted. In particular, he said a crumpled eviction notice found in a kitchen garbage can was not hearsay evidence because of what the document is—that is, an eviction notice—and not what it says. Grist also allowed the inclusion of a recording of a 9-1-1 call from the day before Planje went missing. In the recording, Planje said Frederickson had thrown a canister of rice and his dogs’ bowls at him and that he “flipped out”

when he was asked to leave. In the recording, Planje said he “want[ed] someone to come get Steven out of there” Grist said the statements were “indicative of the deceased’s state of mind towards the accused and his intention to have him evicted.” Grist said it and other statements Planje made to his friend and his sister can be admitted as evidence that there was an “ongoing dispute between the two that generally concerned food and the keys to the car.” Other statements made by Planje, including that Frederickson had locked him out of the house, were supported by other testimony and evidence, Grist ruled. “Ultimately,” Grist wrote in his decision, “when dealing with the evidence as a whole, the court will be left in a sufficient position to assess its worth.” Two other statements Planje made to friend Colleen Crook were excluded because there was no other evidence capable of confirming the incidents. The trial, which began in February, continues this week with a Crown witness testifying about blood splatter evidence collected from Planje’s Ashwell Road home. 2013 Dodge Journey R/T shown.§

POLLS, from page 5 He only needed the first one. Both Martin and Throness said that pollsters now needed to take a long look in the mirror. “I think anyone who is making their living as a political pollster in this country may want to be sending out some resumes because I don’t see them having much value anymore,” Martin told theTimes. “Pollsters are going to have a real problem,” Throness said. “Because they were wrong in

Calling the shots Alberta and they were wrong here in spades— deeply and [by] orders of magnitude wrong— so I think there are some questions that are going to be asked of polling companies in the future. “But I love that the people are the boss and the people call the shots. It’s not the pollsters, it’s not the campaigns, it’s not the candidates. It’s the people.”

A: Botox Cosmetic® is an injectable treatment derived from a purified protein and works by relaxing the muscles that cause the dynamic wrinkles, giving your face a more relaxed and refreshed appearance. Regular use of this simple treatment will soften expression lines and prevents the further deepening of lines. A tiny amount of Botox® is injected precisely into the muscle that is being treated. A very fine needle is used so that the pain associated with the injection is minimal. It is a very quick simple procedure with no downtime. You can expect results within a few days and the effect usually lasts from 3-6 months.

Excalibur wins election! . . . if students had a vote BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

T

ruth, honour and justice prevailed in the provincial election Tuesday—among Central elementary students anyway. After hearing presentations from all five Chilliwack riding candidates last week, Grade 5 and 6 students at the school elected BC Excalibur Party candidate Michael Halliday in a mock parallel election Monday. Halliday, who garnered just 160 votes in Tuesday’s provincial election, founded the Excalibur Party—named after the legendary sword of King Arthur—in hopes of bringing the chivalric ideals of Camelot to Victoria. “His party’s motto is truth, honour and justice,” Central socials teacher Christopher Lister told the Times, “and I think that spoke to the kids. I think it’s something that they can relate to directly.” Idealistic, and not particularly concerned about which parties have a realistic shot at forming government, students in the past have tended to favour the Green Party’s emphasis on social justice and the environment. Not this time. Of the 50 unspoiled ballots cast at Central Monday, 20 were for Halliday, 12 for BC Conservative candidate Chad Eros, nine for BC Green Party candidate Kim Reimer, five for NDP candidate Patti MacAhonic and four for BC Liberal John Martin. “The two big parties [the BC Liberals and the BC NDP] were quite dry in their delivery,” Lister said. “They used a lot of advanced language . . . . I thought the two candidates who presented the best were Michael and Chad

Eros. Chad brought an allegory into his presentation to kind of describe the political process. That definitely helped.” The vote Monday was the third Lister has organized at the school. He also held mock parallel elections during the 2011 federal election and the 2012 Chilliwack-Hope byelection. Along with inviting all the candidates into his classroom, the school live-streamed each of their presentations on the Internet so other Chilliwack schools could listen in. For the vote itself, Central and 27 other Chilliwack and Chilliwack-Hope schools, along with many other schools around the province, teamed up with Student Vote, a national non-profit that has run 19 parallel federal, provincial and territorial elections since 2003 in the name of giving young people a taste of the Canadian electoral process. (visit www.studentvote.ca/bc2013election/ results for 2013 election results). The organization recreates elections down to the smallest details, including ballot boxes and ballots with the names of actual candidates already printed on them. For Lister it’s an ideal, hands-on way to teach kids about the Canadian electoral process and democracy. And in that way you could say his students’ choice for MLA Monday was right on the money. “Michael kind of epitomizes what a democracy is all about,” Lister said. “If you’re not happy with the way things are going, then you have a choice to practise apathy and sit on your bum or you can actually go and do something about it.”

I couldn’t believe how great the deal was and how accommodating the staff were to me. I will not buy glasses anywhere but Great Glasses in the future. I’m so glad that Bruce was willing to fight for good customer value. Sincerely, Amy Gill

P

olitical scientists are fond of saying that campaigns matter. That has never been more true than in the B.C. election this week. Over the course of four weeks, the fortunes of the main parties shifted dramatically. The Liberal victory on Tuesday belonged to Christy Clark. She ran a very focused, disciplined and highly energetic campaign. While the opinion polls suggested that a majority of voters believed it was time for a change, Clark transformed this election into a referendum on the economy. While economists questioned her numbers, Clark’s narrow focus on the economy had the virtue of simplicity. It was easy for her to repeat the same message over and over again, and it was easy for the voters to grasp. At times, it seemed like the Liberals were re-fighting the 1996 campaign, but the constant references to the 1990s had a strategic logic. It was a direct appeal to older voters, who are typically more conservative and importantly much more likely to vote than younger voters. While many pundits will focus on the Liberal’s negative attacks on Adrian Dix, Clark was always radiant and upbeat. She embodied optimism. By contrast, the NDP campaign was lacklustre and uninspiring. The NDP banked wholly on the belief that the voters wanted a change in government. But Adrian Dix never defined what change would look like. Instead of saying that change would bring more social justice or

HAMISH TELFORD

Be Our Guest more equality, he left it blank. And that allowed the Liberals to suggest that change would be bad. And in contrast to Clark’s ebullient personality, Dix appeared to have less charisma than a funeral director. He just wasn’t able to convey a sense of hope. The NDP campaign in sum was just too tepid and cautious. Mr. Dix seemed to believe if he didn’t make a mistake in the campaign, the NDP would coast to victory. The NDP was also hurt by a strong campaign by the Green Party. While the Greens share of the vote was only about eight per cent across the province, the Green vote was larger than the margin of Liberal victories over the NDP in about a dozen ridings. The Liberals on the other hand benefited from the utterly hopeless Conservative campaign. From their problems vetting candidates to John Cummins’ unsteady debate performances, the Conservatives didn’t look ready to govern the province. And voters abandoned the Conservatives in droves. After riding as high as 23 per cent in the polls a year ago, the Conservative vote plummeted to under five per cent on Tuesday. While it was a bad night for Adrian Dix, it was a worse night for opinion pollsters, who pre-

dicted an NDP majority win. How could they all be so wrong? A number of factors might be at work here. First, there was a high number of undecided voters right up to the end of the campaign. The polling companies generally assume that the undecideds will break along the same lines as everyone else. But it would appear that they broke massively for the Liberals on Tuesday. Second, in most polls people leaning for one party are counted in with the decideds, but leaners are prone to changing their minds at the last minute and the polling companies were unable to capture these shifts. And lastly language may have been an issue. The election was really decided in the greater Vancouver region, where many people speak English as a second language. The intentions of these voters may not have been adequately incorporated in the polling results. The pollsters will review their methodologies, but polling is an inherently inexact science. What we really need is for pollsters to be more open about the limitations of their work. In the end, this was an election about hope and fear. But it wasn’t a case of fear conquering hope. Clark may have used fear to push people away from the NDP, but she skilfully projected herself as the candidate of hope to draw voters to the Liberal Party. Her challenge now is to deliver on the hope she has engendered across the province. ◗ Hamish Telford is a professor of political science at UFV.

Well, no one saw that coming. In hindsight, it seems strange that many were predicting both Chilliwack ridings would fall into the hands of the NDP. Chilliwack has long been a stronghold for parties on the right side of the political spectrum and it remains so. Last year’s byelection result turns out to have been a blip caused by vote-splitting, lingering resentment of the HST and low turnout. But on Tuesday, voters handily elected two new BC Liberals to represent their ridings in Victoria. Congratulations to John Martin and Laurie Throness. Both ran solid campaigns and were deserving of their victory. For both, the task now becomes balancing party loyalty with standing up for their principals and constituents. We hope Throness, who built a career out of working for politicians, will remember that he’s now working for the people of his Chilliwack-Hope riding. While breaking from caucus is a lot to ask any politician, Throness must at least show a willingness to speak his mind and stand up for his consituents—both in public and behind closed doors. Martin, meanwhile, must reign in some of his more partisan tendencies and remember that he is now representing all of Chilliwack—even those lefties whose butt he kicked Tuesday night. We would hardly advise him to suppress his views. But in order to make himself a face Chilliwack residents can turn to when they need help from their provincial government, he must show an ability to be a man of all the people. We’re also bidding adieu to the only NDP MLA this city has ever seen. In her year in office, Gwen O’Mahony worked extremely hard. We hope Throness and Martin emulate the community-building work she undertook and bring the same determination to the job. Martin and Throness may have done enough to win, but it’s hard to argue that O’Mahony deserved to lose. Such is politics. We hope she finds herself another leadership role to continue the work she began last spring.

Appreciate the feedback Editor: Re: “Larger issues to talk about.” Contrary to Mr. Raddysh’s opinion stated in the above noted letter, the problem with legal marijuana grow operations can’t be dealt with by local government alone. The reason for this is that the roots of this problem lay in regulations set by the previous federal Liberal government. That is why I am pleased to work with my Conservative colleagues to change federal regulations that will eliminate marihuana grow operations from residential areas. With respect to the federal budget, our government has taken significant steps to further protect the deposits and retirement savings of Canadians. To be clear: the “bail-in” scenario described in the federal budget has nothing to do with depositors’ accounts. Those accounts will continue to remain insured through the Canada Deposit Insurance Corporation, as always. Under a “bail-in” arrangement, a failing financial institution has to tap into its own special reserves or assets (which it has been forced to put aside) to keep its operations going. The “bail-in” regime would only kick in during the event that a major bank in Canada begins to fail, an extremely unlikely scenario, given that Canada’s banking sector has been ranked #1 in the world for five

years running. These measures are designed to protect both taxpayers from having to bail-out banks and depositors from having to take a financial hit like we’ve seen in Cyprus. On the issue of terrorism, the Conservative government takes very seriously its obligation to keep Canadians safe. The threat of terrorism including from those radicalized here at home is real as we’ve seen in the recent Via Rail plot in Ontario. The Combating Terrorism Act contains important new measures to address the issue while numerous safeguards will protect our personal liberties. I will continue to raise issues of local, regional and national concern and always appreciate constituent feedback on matters of importance to them. Mark Strahl, MP Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon

Rugby a ‘hit’ with Sardis senior girls

irls don’t get to hit each other nearly enough. That’s the prevailing opinion on the Sardis senior girls rugby team anyway. The squad—resurrected this year after a nine-year hiatus—wrapped up its season last week by clobbering Enver Creek 69-0, and most players agree tackling has been the best part of signing up. “Girls are actually a lot more rough, believe it or not,” said Grade 10 prop Samantha Gauthier, who has played all-boys football with the Chilliwack Giants. “The girls are definitely out to hurt more in my personal opinion. SCAN TO SEE PHOTOS I love the difference, honestly.” The Times caught up with five players after Tuesday’s game, and all listed tackling among their favourite parts of the game. “It’s just fun to have people on the sidelines cheer about a big hit,” Grade 12 inside centre and Falcons captain Tori Kuhn said. “You don’t always get to do that,” said Grade 10 wing Jacinta Jimmie of the adrenaline rush that comes with taking down another player. “I really like to tackle,” said Grade 12 scrum half Rebecca Sturm. “I go into those rucks a lot, and when you’re able to get it and your

Plevy brings bro to Chiefs Gibson heats up the pool

T

he Chilliwack Chiefs announced Tuesday that leading scorer Austin Plevy will return next year. Plevy had committed to play college hockey for Merrimack next year, but will postpone his move south one more year. He’ll be joined in the Chiefs’ lineup next year by his brother Mitch, who is two years younger and played for the Junior B Ridge Meadows Flames last year. “Being able to play junior hockey with my brother, play in front of the fans in Chilliwack and better prepare myself for Merrimack all factored in to the decision to return,” said

Austin Plevy. “It’s a great organization to play for, and I’m really looking forward to next season.” Plevy’s return is vital for Chiefs head coach and general manager Harvey Smyl, who must replace eight of the team’s nine top scorers from last year. Only Plevy, who finished second in the British Columbia Hockey League with 73 points—including 30 goals—is returning. The Plevys won’t be the only set of brothers on next year’s team, with Carter and Tanner Cochrane already slated to wear Chiefs colours.

hilliwack’s Jessie Gibson dominated the recent RichmondWest Coast Open Swim Meet, winning in nine different events. Gibson, who swims with the Spartans Swim Club in the 15-and-over age category, won in the 50-, 100- and 200-metre freestyle and butterfly events, along with the 50- and 100-metre backstroke and the 200-metre individual medley (IM). Several other Spartans posted strong results. Swimming with the 15-and-over boys, Carson Olafson won the 200-metre freestyle and backstroke and the 100-metre butterfly. He also finished second in the 50-metre back-

stroke and butterfly and the 200-metre butterfly. Swimming in the same category, Grayson Bukkos finished second in the 200-metre backstroke. Justin Awrey finished second in the 200-metre IM. Carson Loeppky posted a fourth-place finish in the 50-metre breaststroke and Eduard Stanciu came fifth in the 100-metre backstroke. In the 13-14-year-old girls class, Nadia Marie Strelioff won third in 400-metre IM and fifth in the 200-metre breaststroke. Brook Kienas finished fifth in the 100-metre breaststroke.

RUGBY, from page 10 community the sport engenders among players. “There’s something about a rugby team,” Sturm said. “There’s a spot for every kind of girl. Every type of body type has a position in rugby. It’s got such a sense of community, and that’s something I definitely wanted to be involved in.” The initial response to the new team was enthusiastic, with 36 girls signing up. Some dropped off when the practices, tackling and accompanying bumps and bruises started in mid-February, but the squad has retained a core of about 26, according to Ego, who teaches chemistry at the school. “The girls have been super excited, and I show up and learn how to phone 9-1-1,” she said with a laugh. Not a coach herself, Ego enlisted the help of community coach Terry Puckey to introduce the girls, none of

whom had ever played rugby before, to the sport. All new teams play in a developmental league for two years to avoid the injuries that would certainly abound if green teams like Sardis had to face squads with long-established programs. The Falcons acquitted themselves admirable in the league despite a chaotic first game in March during which few players had yet mastered the rules. They ended the season with a 5-2 record. A lot of this year’s players are graduating, but the younger Falcons have already started to spread the word to make sure the team has enough players to run again next year.

Q: My crocuses are spreading wildly in thick masses of foliage that never produce any flowers. Should I dig them up, separate the tiny bulbs and plant them again? Or just act like they’re a weed and get rid of them completely? My garden space is very limited and the other bulbs are getting crowded out. Margaret Kernaghan Vancouver A: The crocus that is the most notorious spreader and seeder is the little ‘Snow Crocus’ (Crocus tomasinianus) but it’s also a prolific flowerer as long as it’s planted where sun can get to it.

A: In B.C., Fritillaria imperialis is not especially difficult to grow—but it can be difficult to flower unless it’s located in perfect conditions. You’re not alone in having problems with this species. This fritillaria needs a great deal of sun, warmth, rich soil and very good drainage. The top of the bulb is slightly concave— that’s why it’s best to plant fritillaria bulbs on their side so that rainwater won’t pool in the top and cause rotting. The increasing rain in recent B.C. winters has created constantly moist soil over very long periods. This has been very hard on any bulb which needs superb drainage. It would be a good idea to fertilize your fritillaries with a high-phosphorous fertilizer—do this at the time you would normally have expected them to flower.

Q: Geraniums in two planters on my south-facing balcony have wintered well and still have blooms. Is it too late to cut them back? If it’s not too late, how should it be done.” Clare Daem Email A: It’s not too late to cut them back. They’ll grow rapidly now warmer weather is here and cutting back will give you a more shapely plant that will flower more prolifically. But those new shoots will set buds and bloom somewhat later than normal. If you don’t cut it back, your geranium will keep on flowering with blooms on the end of leggy stems. These stems will lengthen and get more gangly as summer continues. Cutting back is done by pruning half to one-third the length of the stems. Just sever them slightly above the leaf joint closest to the height you choose. Each joint is a raised area which circles the stem. Cutting just above a joint triggers

The benefits of pruning your trees and shrubs

P

runing trees and shrubs is necessary to ensure they maintain their health and vigor. Trees and shrubs should be inspected annually to determine if they need to be pruned. Mature trees typically do not need to be pruned as frequently as young trees, which need pruning to establish branch structure. Trees and shrubs that go years without pruning can become overgrown and weak. In addition to promoting tree and shrub health, pruning pays a host of other dividends. ◗ Pruning removes dead or diseased branches. Pruning helps a tree or shrub maintain its shape and vigor by removing broken, dead or diseased branches that can be unsightly and make it more difficult for the tree or shrub to stay healthy. When broken, dead or diseased branches are removed, trees or shrubs look healthier and add aesthetic appeal to a property. ◗ Pruning trees and shrubs promotes growth of other plants. Trees and shrubs that go years without being pruned become overgrown, making it difficult for plants underneath or adjacent to them to grow in healthy. For example, grass beneath an overgrown tree might not get adequate sunlight, which it needs to establish strong roots so it can grow in lush and healthy. Pruning allows plants beneath the tree and shrub, and even those next to the tree and shrub, to grow in

nicely. ◗ Pruning can sometimes bring plants back to life. Shrubs that have gone years without being pruned can sometimes still be salvaged. In some instances, pruning such shrubs can restore natural and healthy growth. ◗ Pruning reduces risk of accidents. Overgrown trees can interfere with power lines, increasing the risk of accidents and power outages. In addition, overgrown trees tend to have larger, weaker limbs, which can prove hazardous and cause property damage during storms. Pruning overgrown trees reduces the risk of such accidents. ◗ Pruning can save money. Over time, overgrown trees might require professional assistance in order to be removed or pruned from a property. Homeowners who prune their trees as needed can save themselves the cost of a potentially pricey tree service. ◗ Pruning adds curb appeal. A property littered with overgrown trees and shrubs hurts a home’s curb appeal, giving prospective buyers the impression that homeowners might have been careless with regard to maintaining the whole house and not just the lawn. But trees and shrubs that are pruned and well-maintained can add to a home’s curb appeal, something that goes a long way toward impressing prospective buyers.

Identifying your garden preferences is crucial

A

personal garden is only limited by the constraints of a person’s imagination. The vast array of plants and flowers available from all over the world can turn anyone’s yard into a melange of functional spaces. When designing a garden, many homeowners do not know where to begin. Much like decorating the interior of a home, how a garden landscape is executed depends on various factors.

Style of the home Landscaping designs often tie into the architectural style of a home. For example, an extensive Asian-inspired garden complete with koi pond and bonsai may look odd in front of a log home. Keep architecture in mind when planning a garden so the look of the home you present is cohesive and fits with the community and immediate vicinity. Design preferences Are you a free spirit who doesn’t conform to convention with firm boundaries? Or are you one who likes order and things in their

Climate and conditions The foremost consideration when planting a garden is the climate where the garden will be located. Planting items that are not conducive to growing in certain conditions can be counterintuitive and a waste of money and effort. Prospective gardeners must become familiar with the hardiness zones of their region prior to making any plans. This will help you to determine which types of plants will thrive on your landscape. Once this is determined, examination of the soil and conditions on the property is also helpful. Taking this step will help identify any plant deterrents, such as poor soil quality and pH as well as any pests that may impede plant growth. If you live in a hot, sandy location, lush tropical plants may not thrive. Therefore, even if you desire a Mediterranean look, you may have to settle for something that works better with your landscape conditions.

A field of Black Eye Susan flowers may be someone’s idea of the perfect garden. place? Knowing what makes you tick will help you to choose a gardening style that will be easier to maintain and also make you feel comfortable. For example, prairie-style planting or wildflower gardens are dramatic ways to create natural points of colour over a large area. Most plants are allowed to grow as they may. Those who like a dreamy ethereal feel to their gardens may be inspired by cottage designs, where generously filled borders overflow into a flower and foliage paradise. If you are more inclined to follow the rules and like an orderly landscape, a parterre, or formal planting bed, may be more your style. When carefully pruned, box hedging can show off symmetry and geometry in your space. Some people are more focused on the accents in their gardens than the plants

themselves. Modern architecture pairs well with a contemporary style that blends minimalist accents and easyto-maintain plants. Although you can change plants in your garden, investing in a garden that you will be happy with for a long time is a costly venture. You may want to consult a landscape architect or local nursery to find the plants and trees that fit with your design and lifestyle. These experts can also instruct you how to maintain all of your hard work and when to expect the full impact of your new landscape to take form. Homeowners can browse ideas for gardens in magazines and online, but ultimately it will be up to their personal design preferences and the climate where their home is located to determine which garden will look and grow best.

Faith Today

The mean Jesus

BY VERN TOMPKE Vineyard Community Church

C

arl Medearis’s book Speaking of Jesus makes the provocative statement that Jesus tended to be kind and merciful to those outside the religious establishment but mean and even downright nasty to those who were the religious insiders. My first thought as a pastor is to immediately distance myself from such negative treatment, but, after just finishing preaching through the book of Luke, I am not so sure I should quickly assume my immunity. Here are a number of issues that would make me hesitate before I invited Jesus to my next dinner party. The Sadducees represented the “power church” of the day having aligned themselves with the successful “players” of the day. The

result was they ended up on the pointy end of Jesus’ scorn. Today, we like to attract and retain the most successful people for they make us feel better about ourselves. Even our desire to worship with people we can relate to (people just like us) wouldn’t pass the “Jesus test.” Jesus, on the other hand, tells us to welcome the marginalized with a much bigger smile because they have nothing to give us and, in doing so, we represent His heart. I know the smile on my face varies when people walk in the door but not for His reasons. Another thing I noticed about

Jesus was that he doesn’t seem to share my importance on being a success. Like most of us, I came to Jesus in the hope that my life would work better by following him. Over time, however, I retain this secret desire that everything I put my hand to becomes more successful with His magic touch. This “positive only” blinder flies in the face of Jesus’s teaching that promised pain and persecution as much as he promises us “good” gifts. I recently read Dietrich Bonheoffer’s autobiography, in which he credited the emphasis on “positive Christianity” as one of the chief reasons why the state Lutheran church

was so ripe to be co-opted by Adolf Hitler—they would do anything to share in the success he offered. As a young pastor I always assumed that being fruitful and being successful were one and the same. Now I realize that sometimes these paths lead in different directions. The last area where I think Jesus would mess up my “party” is in this desire to be a part of the ”popular” church. Now let me say that it was, and still is, a wonderful thing when people far from God find their Saviour (who has also been pursuing them). It is also God’s intent that the local church provides the necessary

community needed for followers of Jesus. Yet, look at the difference between Jesus and his followers. Whenever Jesus gathered a crowd around him, his disciples were elated. Then Jesus messes it all up by doing and saying things that caused them to want to leave. Eugene Peterson, in his book the Pastor, labels the buzz we get as people and pastors in a big crowd as “false transcendence”—something he says is as detrimental to our spiritual growth as an addiction to drugs and alcohol. Wow. I have a long way to go before I want to stop drinking from that bottle. Is Jesus mean? I hope not. But on second thought, I may want to hold off a bit before I prepare that invitation. ◗ Vern Tompke pastors at the Vineyard Community Church and can be reached at vtompke@shaw.ca.

Provincial Performing Arts Festival comes to Chilliwack May 26 to 30

W

inners from some 32,000 regional singing, dancing and performing competitions in cities throughout British Columbia will be in Chilliwack during the week of May 26 to 30 to perform and compete in the Provincial Performing Arts Festival 2013. The Provincials involve adjudicated sessions, master classes, coaching, workshops and technique classes in the dance, music and speech arts disciplines. These promising young artists (ranging from age five to 28) will be critiqued by North America’s finest adjudicators to receive further awards, and possibly the chance to compete in their discipline at the national level. About 1,500 people are expected to visit Chilliwack during the Provincials, spending an estimated $400,000 in tourism dollars, which will benefit the local economy while supporting the performing arts. Local residents are also encouraged to attend the competitions and honours concerts of B.C.’s finest young performers. Many businesses and organizations have answered the call to support this important event with their sponsorship. Over $30,000 has already been secured—funds which offset the significant cost of hosting the event.

Final concert of the season for CMO/YO

T

he Chilliwack Metropolitan Orchestra and Youth Orchestra (CMO/YO) present its final performance of the 2012/13 concert season on May 25 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. A romantic evening of light-hearted Viennese music is planned, perfect for an evening out with that special person. Compositions from the Strauss family, including the wonderful Die Fledermaus Overture, polkas that imitate thunder and lightning and a special piece reminiscent of steam trains will please the younger audience members. The lyrical Emperor Waltz conjures visions of ballroom dancing and, of course, no waltz night would be complete without the Blue Danube Waltz. Maestro Louwershiemer will be conducting the CMO/YO and more than 80 musicians will be on stage for a full symphony orchestra sound. The highlight of the evening will be local violinist and music teacher David Voth performing the Beethoven Romance No. 1 in G Major, Opus 40. One of a pair of Romances composed for violin by Beethoven, the G Major was actually written four years after the second romance. It was published three years before the second, hence, it is named the first. “I love how Beethoven uses double stops on the solo violin throughout the piece,” Voth says. “The orchestra is silent during these interludes, and it’s as though the world stands still while two melodies are interwoven on a single instrument. That epitomizes a romance for me.” When the orchestra joins the violin there are wonderful moments with flute highlighted. The Romance increases in intensity and finishes with a wonderful trio of chords. Voth is well-known to Chilliwack concertgoers as he is frequently in the concert master chair of the CMO, co-conducts and rehearses the youth orchestra, and has performed with

He now has a thriving Chilliwack music studio with many music instruction books to his credit. He has been instrumental to the success of the CMYO and has volunteered countless hours to its development. He is now specializing in the development of the younger members of the CMYO and they successfully performed Vivaldi at the most recent concert last March.

Digging up some treasure

T

heatre Junkies Anonymous Fine Arts, who burst onto the stage with The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe last May, is dropping the curtain on its second season with the classic tale, Treasure Island. Jim Hawkins, a young boy who longs to explore the world, gets swept up on an a daring race for buried gold when he meets the infamous pirate Long John Silver. The production runs at the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) May 22 to 26. This exciting adventure for all ages is adapted from the original novel by Robert Louis Stevenson and is directed by the company’s artistic director, Megan Mackenzie, and local actor Gabby Bohmer. “Treasure Island has something for everyone,” Mackenzie says. “Our talented cast of 19 performers presents comedic, dramatic and villainous characters that all hold one common goal: to find the treasure. Music, slapstick humour and a number of high-energy sword fights piece together this story in a way that is both authentic and creative.” Taking on the iconic role of Jim Hawkins is local actor Patrick Jolicoeur, who has appeared in Theatre Junkies Anonymous’s past two productions. Most recently, he played Fred Burnett in the sold-out run of A Christmas Carol.

The evil buccaneer Long John Silver is played by Chilliwack resident Eldon Letkeman. This is Letkeman’s first production with the company. This show is a theatre-for-young-audiences production, meaning that it is intended for families and audiences of all ages. “It has action, comedy, tragedy, and some might even detect a bit of love in there too!” says Dallas Hanson, a Chilliwack actor and musician, who plays Billy Bones. “It is a wonderfully produced show that showcases some amazing local talent and nothing is better than supporting your community.” Other local actors in the ensemble include: Adriel Brandt, Rebekah Brisco, Philip Dyck, Aaron Froc, Darin Graham, Torry Janz, Kirk MacFarlane, Madison MacArthur, Danielle Milette, Noah Park, Colleen Plenert, Melissa Regamble, Thomas Smith, Jenna Veenbaas, Derek Ward- Hall and Jessie Whatley. ◗ The UFV Chilliwack North Theatre is located at 45635Yale Rd. Shows run on May 22, 23, and 24 at 7:30 p.m. May 25 shows are at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. and the May 26 show is at 2 p.m. Tickets range from $12 to $16 (including all taxes) and can be purchased in advance through the Chilliwack Cultural Centre box office at 604391-7469, or at the door with cash only one hour prior to performances.
