Wet, warm weather helps set 8 records

Lucky to be alive

eptember was really warm and really wet in Chilliwack as eight temperature records were broken and rainfall was 50 per cent above normal. The month also signalled the end of the hottest summer on record and the 13th consecutive summer with above average temperatures, according to Environment Canada volunteer weather observer Roger Pannett. The average temperature between July and August was 19.56 C, which is 2.33 C above normal. A total of 167.8 millimetres (mm) of rain fell over 17 days last month, compared to the average of 112.7 mm on 11 days. September was the fifth consecutive month when overnight minimum temperatures were “well above normal,” Pannett said. High minimum records in the 16.2 C to 18.6 C range were broken on Sept. 6, 7, 11 and 12. On Sept. 11 the mercury hit 33.5 C, a record maximum for the day, which also saw an all-time record average temperature of 26.05 C. Overall, the month was the warmest since 1974. The month began with an upperlevel low pressure system moving up from the Oregon coast, which resulted in a number of rare thunderstorms in the Fraser Valley. Mid-month is when the hot weather hit, breaking a number of records. Then an active Pacific frontal system rolled in Sept. 28, which produced a record rainfall for the day of 42.8 mm, exceeding the previous record from 1961. To date there have been 1,160 mm of precipitation on 139 days compared to the 30-year average of 1,160.5 mm on 117 days.

dam Teskey and Jake Barstad weren’t looking for any trouble when they walked into the District Public House in downtown Chilliwack Sunday night. But by the time they left, both had been stabbed, and they were lucky to be alive. “It went into my lung and into my liver and they had to cut my stomach wide open and perform emergency surgery,” Teskey said in a phone interview with the Times from his bed at Chilliwack General Hospital (CGH) Tuesday. Teskey and Barstad, who are workmates at Tycrop in Rosedale, had dropped into the Five Corners pub after bowling at Chillibowl Lanes just a few doors down. Barstad had convinced Teskey to try some of the pub’s “exotic beers.” Within five minutes of bringing their drinks upstairs to enjoy with a game of pool, however, Teskey said two other men (a slim, dark-haired man about five-foot-nine and a shorter man, who both looked to be between 25 and 35 years old) followed them up and

tephan Moreau was on board a Canadian Navy ship in 2004 that was conducting a military exercise when a piece of equipment malfunctioned leading to several serious injuries. Moreau witnessed the incident firsthand, and the experience left him with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). “I withdrew from everyone and I didn’t want to talk about it,” he told theTimes. Like so many who suffer with PTSD, Moreau became a shell of his former self. He didn’t go out. He didn’t talk to people. He stopped participating in activities that he enjoyed, including sports like triathlon. But things are improving for Moreau who was in Chilliwack recent-

the challenges of living with disabilities, and the discrimination they sometimes face. Concerns over program funding were also shared. “We were pleased to have the opportunity to introduce the minister to the work we do, and most especially to the individuals we serve,” said Brenda Gillette, CSCL executive director. “It was a chance to let him see community living firsthand.” Community Living Month rolls around every October and is held to recognize the contributions of people with developmental disabilities and their supporters. Community events, employment roundtables and forums to celebrate people with developmental disabilities as equal and contributing members of society are all part of the celebrations.

STABBING, from page 1 challenged them to a game of pool for money. “We had maybe a quarter of our beer. We didn’t have anything to drink, and we didn’t even have a chance to finish our game of pool,” Teskey said. “They kept harassing us to play pool for money, and we don’t play pool very well, so we didn’t want to play.” After being harangued for a while, Teskey said he even told the two to order a couple of pints on his tab to get rid of them. “You’d think that would be the nice thing to do, right?” But the men returned and kept asking to play for money until Barstad finally challenged them to put their money on the table, Teskey said. That’s when things got “freaky,” according to Teskey. “They looked at each other and they had this really eerie look, like freaky, eerie look . . . then the one guy puts his hands in his pockets and he goes, ‘Put your hands in your pockets too,’ to his buddy that’s sitting right across from him in the booth. And he does, and then the taller one says, ‘We ain’t got no money, but we want some.’” No knives were revealed at that point, but the men’s

Cheam Lake was known as a duck- and goose-breeding site that supported coho and cutthroat trout before it was drained. DUC says coho have returned to the lake and many amphibians are supported, such as the redlegged frog, and northwestern and longtoed salamanders. A wide variety of migrating and wintering waterfowl also use the lake, including common and hooded mergansers, buffleheads, scaup, ringnecked ducks, mallards and northern pintails. The lake is also regularly used as a roosting site by wintering trumpeter swans.

he 20-year-old restoration project at Cheam Lake in Popkum will get a much-needed facelift thanks to Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC). The lake, which is the centrepiece of the Cheam Lake Wetlands Regional Park, was drained 60 years ago for the mining of marl, a substance used in agriculture. In 1992, restoration of the lake began with construction of a water control structure and fish ladder. DUC says while

that main structure is still in good condition, the culvert is beginning to fail and the fish ladder needs upgrades. “Cheam Lake is the type of restoration we get the most satisfaction from,” said Brad Arner, manager of provincial operations for DUC in B.C., in a press release. “Taking a site that had been significantly altered by previous use, then going in, restoring the hydrology and watching the return of habitat and then the fish and wildlife.” Funding for the project is shared between Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation, DUC, and Fisheries and Oceans Canada. “The Government of Canada is pleased to support projects like the Cheam Lake infrastructure upgrades through our Recreational Fisheries Conservation Partnership Program,” said Mark Strahl, Member

PREST ROAD UPGRADE YOUR INPUT IS APPRECIATED

The City of Chilliwack is proposing to upgrade Prest Road between Bailey Road and Chilliwack Central Road, to increase capacity and safety for vehicles, pedestrians & cyclists. A preliminary engineering design has recently been completed showing upgrades in a phased approach up to the year 2051. This includes intersecson improvements and road widening to provide wider travel lanes and bicycle lanes in phase 1 & 2 with ulsmately a 4-lane road in Phase 3 & 4 (2030 and beyond). The preliminary design analyzed convensonal signalized intersecsons against modern roundabouts at the intersecsons of Bailey Rd, McGuire Rd, Prairie Central Rd, Hwy #1 Interchange and Chilliwack Central Rd. The analysis considered all factors such as safety, efficiency and cost, and concluded that modern roundabouts provide the opsmum design soluson. The City invites you to agend open houses at several locasons as follows: • October 1 – Promontory Heights Elementary School, 46200 Stoneview Drive • October 8 – C.H.A.N.C.E. Alternate School, 7780 Prest Road • October 10 – F.G. Leary Fine Arts Elementary School, 9320 Walden Street Please drop in between 6:30 and 8:30 pm to learn more about the project and provide any feedback you may have. You may also contact the Engineering Department at (604) 793-2907.

More than 150 babies simultaneously nursed with their moms at last year’s breastfeeding challenge in Chilliwack.

Hoping to latch on to a world record

C

hilliwack may be best known for corn and fishing but this weekend the number of mothers nursing their babies might give the city some recognition. At last year’s annual Quintessence Breastfeeding Challenge, the number of babies latching on to their moms locally put Chilliwack first in North America. This year organizers are hoping for even better. “Last year we welcomed over 150 moms and babies to place first in North America,” said Michelle Dennill, Chilliwack La Leche League leader and organizer of this year’s event. “This year we are striving to place first in the world.” The annual breastfeeding challenge began in 2001 in B.C. with 856 children at 26 sites. By last year that was

This year’s event is at Vineyard Community Centre, located at 45873 Wellington Ave. Doors open at 9:30 a.m., event begins at 10 a.m. All moms are asked to come early to check in and to receive their commemorative gift certificate and gift bag as well as to enjoy the special guest speakers and door prizes.

No such thing as smart phones

S

tupid phones. Where did the idea come from that they are smart phones? Certainly not from the smart phones themselves. They don’t have ideas. They’re not smart. They don’t think. Maybe they simulate thought— the thoughts of the people who created them—but they don’t think. Stupid phones. If mine really was a smart phone, it would have had the sense to yell at me as I was walking out the door. “Hey!” a truly smart phone would have shouted at me in the nick of time, “You’re forgetting something, aren’t you?” Instead, it just laid there like a lump. A dumb, stupid lump. And it let me go off to work without it. And I missed an important meeting with a friend. Because not only is my smart phone stupid, but it makes me stupid, too. I don’t have to think anymore. All my thoughts are stored in my stupid smart phone, where I can retrieve them without hardly a thought of my own. It keeps track of my appointments, and sounds a clever alarm —a different one for every different kind of appointment—at exactly the appropriate amount of time that I need to prepare for the appointment. Unless it’s where I can’t hear the

BOB GROENEVELD

Be Our Guest alarm. Unless it’s at home while I’m slugging away in my office. In the old days, before I had a stupid smart phone to keep me from thinking, I thought about what I had to do. And when I had to do it. My brain worked in the old days. Instead of a smart phone, I had a smart brain. Now I have my smart phone, and a stupid brain. And since the smart phone is actually stupid, there’s not a heckuva lot of smart left to go around. The stupid-smart conundrum goes much further than my brain. It goes far beyond me. It’s like a movement that has swept through much of America, the ground-zero of stupid smart phone technology, and is pushing a wave of dumb deep into Canada. You see it everywhere. And it’s not just making people stupid—it’s making them downright scared of smart. Take Smart Meters, for instance. Well, like their kissing-cousin

smart phones, they’re poorly named—they’re not smart. But smart or stupid, what really counts is that they’re helping to make all of us stupid. Not with some kind of phantasmagorical radio-sonic infrapositional positronic ether-borne IQ-reducing quantum phlegm . . . at least not directly. Nope. What’s making us stupid is the belief that the phantasmagorical radio-sonic infrapositional positronic ether-borne IQ-reducing quantum phlegm exists. And on our smart phones we text each other notifications about the havoc that Smart Meters are wreaking on the DNA of our very souls. We chat about it to each other on our cellphones. And we look it up on the Internet, using our Wi-Fi-connected computers. Then we ignore the logical assessments of tens of thousands of scientists—the same ones we trust every time we use our computers and cellphones and— yes—those stupid smart phones. And we take as gospel the rantings of a handful of whack-jobs who make themselves feel smart by making the rest of us stupid. Just as stupid as smart phones. ◗ Bob Groeneveld is the editor of the Langley Advance.

he Golden Ears Bridge cost more than $800 million to build, but that could be dwarfed by the costs of subsidizing it over the long haul. Last week, TransLink reported that it will continue losing up to $45 million a year on the structure because so few drivers are crossing the toll bridge. Traffic growth on the bridge could best be described as minimal, about two to three per cent per year. TransLink agreed to subsidize the private operator of the bridge until it reaches projected driver numbers. That’s obviously a great deal for the private operator—they’re guaranteed a steady income stream no matter what. Either they get a lot of drivers, or everyone in Metro Vancouver pays up through property taxes. It’s wonderful to see the private sector taking big risks like that, a great example of the entrepreneurial spirit. There is no question that the bridge itself, the first crossing any part of the river since the Alex Fraser Bridge was built almost a generation ago, is pretty good. Six lanes, bike and pedestrian access, and it certainly cut down the time to get across from Maple Ridge to Langley. But it was more bridge than we needed. It’s hard to see how ridership numbers will increase much more than they have—the last hope was that tolls on the Port Mann would drive more people to the Golden Ears. If they have, it’s not been enough. There just aren’t enough people south of the river who want to head north, or vice versa, on a routine basis. But the bridge is there, the contracts are signed, and there seems little we can do about the situation for now. Our best bet, both north and south of the river, is to warn the rest of the Lower Mainland not to follow our example. Do we need a replacement for the Massey Tunnel? Yes. Do we need more rapid transit and light rail? Yes. But maybe we should replace the bridge’s golden eagles with white elephants, as a warning against building too much.

Let senior’s story be a lesson for us to slow down Editor: On Sept. 25, in front of the TD Bank on Yale, across from PriceSmart Foods, an elderly lady was about to enter the bank to do her business there and a man she says was not young or old but somewhere in between, came barrelling out of the bank and knocked the lady to the sidewalk. He paused, asked if she was OK and she states she was angry and humiliated, and said yes before getting a moment to think if she was hurt. This rude, inconsiderate man left that elderly woman sprawled on the sidewalk and never looked back. Other people who saw the incident came to her aid. That lady suffered a fractured femur and had to stay in hospital waiting for surgery. While waiting for surgery, this 80-something lady had an MI or more commonly called a heart attack. She was no longer stable enough for surgery and was transferred to a coronary care unit with the fracture not repaired as her heart attack needed to be investigated before the surgery could proceed. While waiting to go for angios, her heart became unstable and she was rushed to the cath lab for urgent heart catheterization. The problem with her heart was so severe she had to go straight into open heart

One surgery for an elderly patient is a long recovery, but two? This was a lady who was living independently, does all her own cooking and takes care of herself and her little dog. If she survives all this, she may not recover enough to ever live independently again and she is going to be spending a very long time in hospital. She is now separated from her little dog and if she can’t return home, will likely be unable to keep him.

ignorant man, you did this to her and did not care enough to stick around and deal with the consequences of your actions. The sad part is she might die and it has not been a peaceful end for her. It has been frightening, painful and worst of all, it was preventable. We can all forgive an accident, but can we forgive your “I-don’t-give-a-damn attitude?” I should not write this because I wasn’t there, but I have been part of her post-injury journey and she is a delightful lady that did not deserve this. My reason for writing this is in the hope that you, the man who knocked a human being to the ground and didn’t have enough care or decency to stop and be a man, will see this and understand the horrible thing you have done. If this

lady were your mom, what would you think if someone did this to her? One last question, what would your mom think of you if she knew what an inconsiderate, rude person you have turned out to be? For the rest of us, let this lady’s story be a lesson to slow down and think about consequences of our behaviour. Is there anything you had to do that was so important that a woman may die because of it? Sandra Wright Chilliwack

Stop thinking of ALR as a land bank Editor: Re: Engaging the community in the new OCP. A UBC Research Foundation paper has pointed out that B.C. needs to acquire 50 per cent more farmland in the Lower Mainland by 2050, approximately 73,800 ha, to sustain the predicted population. Several papers discuss the importance of food security and the general support of the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) by the population. However, many still view the ALR as an “urban land bank.” Thus, our developing Official Community Plan (OCP) states it has five plans, three

of which include the development of Ryder Lake which would mean a loss of almost 1,000 ha of ALR lands in B.C.’s most favourable growing conditions. Even more of a surprise than this, is the misleading statement in the 2013 OCP Update background paper that states (pg. 9) that the “residents” of the western end of Ryder Lake want to develop. The paper then goes on to indicate that a boundary change to the Ryder Lake uplands is likely to happen renaming this area “Ryder LakeWest,” a new jewel for the development department. Well, oddly enough, we “residents” did not receive a poll about wanting to develop the western edge of Ryder Lake. Nor was this discussed at the Ryder Lake OCP community consultation meeting. In fact, not a single soul at the meeting stated what a brilliant idea it would be to chip away at the integrity of the Ryder Lake community by removing chunks bit by bit. Still stunned, this makes one wonder what other hugely misleading statements are in print for all to believe in the 2013 OCP Update. Signed by a farming “resident” of the soon “Ryder Lake West” development area. Lee Larkin Chilliwack

Thanks Bruce, I have a young family, a husband and three kids and my life is very complex. I needed choice, customization and spending a lot of money on glasses was something I couldn’t justify. My Great Glasses experience was awesome. I didn’t need an appointment for my eye test and I got three pairs of glasses for less than I paid for one pair at my regular optical store. 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

he Sardis secondary senior boys soccer team was alive and kicking Tuesday afternoon despite local media reports the team had disbanded after 10 team members were suspended for marijuana use during a tournament. The triple-A Falcons trounced Fraser Heights 4-1 on home turf in their first league game of the season, with Grade 10 midfielder Cam Marshall delivering a hat trick and Grade 12 striker Brandon Wallace chipping in a single marker. “I think it just shows how strong our program still is,” Falcons head coach Shaun Calver told the Times. “We could have just chose to fold up like the other newspaper article said or we could keep going, and we chose to keep going.” Ten members of the team were suspended last Tuesday after Sardis administrators were notified the group smelled of marijuana at a tournament in Surrey two weeks ago. After admitting to smoking pot at the event, the players were kicked off the team and out of the school for the rest of the semester. Their parents have complained the punishment is too harsh and said the

She also said it might be time to take another look at the district’s regulations around drugs and alcohol. “We recognize that this regulation was

One parent at Tuesday’s game sympathized. “I think it a was a little harsh for them to all get expelled like that,” said the man, who didn’t want his name used. But the school has a zero-tolerance policy towards drugs and alcohol, he said, and he remembers that being made clear to his son last year. “I don’t know about this year,” he said, “but they voiced it last year before a tournament: If there’s anything like that goes on, it’s zero tolerance. You guys will get booted.” That zero-tolerance message was reiterated at an assembly on the first day of

Huskers hope new turf field brings playoff spot BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he Valley Huskers have one more HailMary long shot at a playoff spot as they take on the third-place Langley Rams at Exhibition Park in their final game of the regular season Saturday. A win over the Rams, who demolished the Huskers 54-7 during their last meeting Sept. 16, could give Valley a mathematical shot at the postseason if both Kamloops and Westshore lose their games this weekend. An injury-plagued Huskers squad faced the second-place Okanagan Sun with a skeleton crew in Kelowna last Saturday. Valley gained just 124 offensive yards in a 610 shutout for the Sun. Down to 30 players from 50 at the beginning of the season, head coach Tyson St. James said injuries are responsible for the Huskers “downhill spiral” in the late season. “You lose some of your leadership in that and you also lose some of your hope,” he said. Quarterback Cody Parray completed 10 of 21

SARDIS, from page 10 developed in 2010; perhaps it is time to review it and for our principals and vice-principals at least to have a conversation. Does it still fit for us?” The Sardis soccer team, meanwhile, has reinforced its decimated roster from a large pool of almost 40 players who came to this year’s tryouts. “We’ve asked a couple more players to come back,” Calver said. “We have a big enough pool of players that we can still have a team.” Besides Marshall there are now four other

passes for 63 yards through the air and carried five times for 48 yards on the ground. Parray’s favourite target was Blake Draper who led receivers with five catches for 22 yards. Josh Giroux led the Huskers on defence with four tackles, while Hayden Jefferies and Cody Vinnish chipped in another three stops each. Valley returns to their home field, newly turfed Exhibition Stadium, for the first and only time this season Saturday, and St. James is looking to improve on last week’s result. “The plan is to have fun; 61-0 isn’t fun,” he said. “It’s hard for people that see it from the outside, but it’s even harder for the people that are involved, considering how we came into the season.” The game kicks off at 2:30 p.m. and will feature a volunteer appreciation component. The Huskers will also honour players who are aging out this year (Dan Coffin, Jerry Sidhu, Misha Otanga, Jake Fabian and Ty DeRayos) for their years of commitment to the team. ◗ For more information, visit www.chilliwackhuskers.com.

May review policy Grade 10 players on the squad and even one Grade 9 player, Malcolm Stafford, from Mt. Slesse. The Falcons’ next game is away against Abbotsford Collegiate Thursday. Sardis returns to Chilliwack next Thursday to face cross-town rivals CSS at CSS. Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m. ◗ For more information about schedules and results, visit www.fraservalleysoccer.webs. com.

Atom Blue

The Atom Blue Giants played to a wet, soggy, 20-0 loss on Saturday against the Meadow Ridge Gold team in Maple Ridge. The team will look to turn it around with a win next week against a strong Atom White Giants team at Townsend Park at 10 a.m. on Saturday.

Atom Red

The Chilliwack Red Atom Giants won a thriller 18-16 against their rival Chilliwack White Giants in the pouring rain at Townsend Park Saturday. With touchdowns scored by Josh Caverly and Nicolas Beck, the Giants were helped out by their stout defence, led by Jesse Reddick and Tyler Bergin. The Red Giants play Abbotsford at home Saturday at 11:45 a.m.

Pee Wee Blue

The Pee Wee Blue Giants lost on Saturday in a rain filled game against the Abbotsford Falcons. The Giants were only down by six at halftime but in the second half, the weather played a factor and took a toll on the Giants. The Giants gave up two more touchdowns in the second half; both of them seemed easy for the Falcons. The one bright spot on Saturday for the Giants was a four-minute drive capped with a nice rushing touchdown from Josh Janssen. The

Giants football Giants have a much needed bye week this weekend and will prepare for the Chilliwack Pee Wee Red squad, Oct. 12.

Junior Bantam

The Giants offence moved the ball all day against the Abbotsford Black Falcons despite the extremely wet and windy conditions. Despite a tremendous effort by the Giants, the JB squad could not stop the Falcons and fell to 0-5 on the season with a final score of 36-0.

Bantam

The 0-4 Bantams travelled to Cowichan to face off against 2-2 Nanaimo/Cowhican Red Dogs. The Giants first two runs by Cam Lampart put the Giants up 7-0. The Giants regained possession and went up 13-0 with a TD pass from quarterback Gabe Olivares to Trey Isaac. The Giants would continue to gain momentum with the help of running backs Warren Rogers and Karan Deol. They would score once again with a one-yard TD run by Olivares. After halftime they would continue to move the ball with another TD pass to Isaac and a 40-yard TD run

by Deol. The Giants won 36-6, getting their first victory of the season. Next game for the Bantam squad is Oct. 12 versus South Delta Rams at Townsend Park.

Midget

The Midget team brought their record up to 2-3 with a solid 22-7 win versus the Coquitlam Falcons on a soggy Saturday at Townsend Park. Keenan Godden opened the scoring on a 85-yard scamper, running through and around would-be tacklers on the way to the end zone. He also hauled in the two-point conversion from Hunter Larocque. A punt single from R.J. Begg made it 9-0 after the first quarter. Coquitlam got their only points on the day early in the second, scoring on a 60-yard catch and run, but for the rest of the game, the Giants defence swarmed the Falcons. Steven Baker scored the second major for the Giants on a strong run off the right tackle. The final touchdown of the day was scored late in the game on a shifty run by Nashon Douglas. Next up for the Midgets is a date with the league powerhouse, Langley Stampeders, who come to Townsend Park Saturday sporting an undefeated 5-0 record.

Martial arts gathering draws many black belts

T

his weekend Chilliwack will be host to more than 50 black belts in the ancient Japanese martial art of Ryukyu Kobudo. The Okinawan art uses a number of classical ancient weapons such as staffs, paddles, blades and batons. The annual training camp is hosted by sensei (teacher) Donald Shapland who returned to Sardis after nearly 15 years in Okinawa, the birthplace of karate and kobudo. Shapland, who is an eighth-degree black belt in shorinryu karate and a seventh-

degree black belt in ryukyu kobodo, is a master instructor in the martial art. Overseeing the weekend will be Tamayose Hidemi, a ninth-degree black belt from Okinawa. Students will be in town from Germany, the U.S. and across Canada to share expertise in ancient weaponry.

◗ Practice will begin at Atchelitz Hall on Lickman Road on Oct. 5 at 9 a.m. and finish on Oct. 6 at 4 p.m. Spectators are welcome to come and watch quietly.

Faith Today BY VERN TOMPKE Vineyard Community Church

E

ver been lost? I mean really lost? Recently, our extended family went through a serious scare when my older brother became lost in the mountains behind Chilliwack Lake Road. From the initial phone call by my frantic sister in law, I began to see a side of our community that you only get to see when you or your family find yourself in desperate need. Let me tell you about what these amazing people did on our behalf. It started with a midnight call to the RCMP and it resulted in a wonderful officer spending the night co-ordinating the arrival of an initial search and rescue team. It is humbling to realize that these people were volunteers who had left their warm beds to help someone who probably should have stayed in

Search and rescue theirs (or at least on the path). Over the next day when it became clear that a quick search wouldn’t suffice, other search and rescue volunteers began to arrive from places like Harrison, Surrey, Coquitlam, etc. Some of these people had left work early, others had come on their day off or interrupted their holidays—all to help someone who had lost their way. As the rescue teams expanded, the Salvation Army van showed up with yet more volunteers who had prepared a meal for the volunteers out in the bush. The longer things went on, it was apparent that lost meant REALLY lost. Helicopters were dispatched unsuccessfully, including

the kind that look for heat signatures below. All of the intense, yet unsuccessful efforts now added to the worry, especially of my brother’s wife. What if he had fallen down a cliff and was severely injured? The terrain where he had become lost was steep and treacherous. What if this search ended in tragedy? Throughout the search, the coordinators kept my sister-in-law informed with what was going on and encouraged her that everything that could be done was happening. At one point they took her up in a helicopter to show where the searches were taking place. Unfortunately, seeing the terrain and vegetation only caused her realize

just how difficult the task was. As she remarked getting off the helicopter, “It will take a miracle to spot him.” As the helicopter returned from one of the last trips of the day, one of the spotters happened to notice a flash on a ridge far off from the area where the ground searchers were combing. Circling back, they spotted my brother waving frantically, exhausted, dehydrated and tremendous relieved. I happened to be in the SAR truck when he was spotted and one can’t describe the elation that swept through the family, team and volunteers. Word spread by radio to those still searching the bush that their combined efforts had been success-

We’ve done it!” As a local pastor, I feel tempted to strike off the path myself and speak of all the search and rescue themes Jesus used to describe the heart of his Father—but I won’t—at least this time. For today, however, let me focus squarely on all the SAR volunteers who represent all of the best that our community has to offer. To all of you who took part in the rescue—a huge thank you from the Tompke family. You guys (and gals) seriously rock! And, if you are looking for a place to volunteer, I couldn’t more heartily recommend that you check out our amazing Search and Rescue squad at www. chilliwacksar.org.

Fire Prevention Week - Oct. 6 to 12

Take the time to plan your escape

F

ire can destroy anyone’s home. Fires are real, not just events in the news or movies. Most people have no idea how destructive a fire can be. Here are some facts that everyone should know. Fire creates thick black smoke that makes it difficult to see. Smoke is more deadly than flames. The poisonous gases in the smoke can kill you. Many fire fatalities occur because people do not stay low and crawl under the smoke to a safe exit. Most fires occur at night while people are sleeping. Many people suffocate without ever waking and realizing the fire danger Fire has intense heat. A fire can create extreme temperatures in a matter of seconds. These temperatures can cause severe burns rendering you unconscious. Fire spreads rapidly. A home can be totally consumed in fire in less than five minutes. Working smoke alarms will provide an early warning of the problem, and a home fire escape plan will provide time to escape safely.

How do I make a fire escape plan?

During a fire there is no time to stop and think about an escape route—seconds are important. Knowing what to do before a fire occurs can save your life. Make an escape plan and practice it with your family today. The four

simple steps to follow when making an escape plan are.

Step 1 - Install working smoke alarms

to contact 9-1-1 or their local emergency number. Know the emergency telephone number for your area.

Install a working smoke alarm on every level of your home and outside sleeping areas. For maximum protection install smoke alarms in every bedroom, especially if you sleep with your bedroom door closed. Test your smoke alarms monthly to ensure they are functioning properly.

Step 4 - Schedule a home fire drill

Step 2 - Draw a floor plan of your home

Get out quickly and safely. When the smoke alarm sounds, immediately start your escape. Do not try to gather possessions or pets. Check the door. Stay low behind the door, reach up and feel the door and the door handle for heat. If the door feels cool, brace yourself against the door and open it slowly. If it is safe, leave the building and go directly to your meeting place. If you encounter smoke, crawl low under the smoke. Cleaner air is down low, near the floor. Once you are out of the building, stay out. There is nothing more important in your house than you and your family. Go to the meeting place to make sure everyone is safe. Phone 9-1-1 or your local emergency number from a neighbour’s house. If the door feels warm, or

Make an outline of each floor of your home and label each room. Identify at least two exits from each room. Windows can serve as the second emergency exit. If a window is considered an exit, make sure all family members can open the locks and windows easily for a quick escape. Security bars on windows and doors must have a quick-release mechanism to make escape possible.

Step 3 - Choose a family meeting place The meeting place should be a safe distance away from the house. All family members should be taught to report to the meeting place after escaping a fire. One person should go to a neighbour’s house or the nearest phone in a safe location

Practice getting out of the house through the various exits by holding fire drills. Practise your escape plan by having a fire drill at least twice each year.

What should I do if there is a fire?

you see smoke or flames on the other side of the door, shut the door, and use your second escape route. If you must escape from an upper story window of a multi-level home, make sure you have a safe way to reach the ground, such as a fire escape ladder. If you are trapped, seal the openings around the door and vents with wet bedding or towels. Call 9-1-1 or your local emergency number and notify the fire department of your location. If it is safe to open a window and there is no smoke, open it to signal and yell for help.

Plan and practise your fire escape drill.

There are some special situations to consider when developing and practising your home fire escape plan. An older adult with restricted mobility should sleep on the ground floor. A special plan should be made to provide assistance to this person. Infants and many young children will also need assistance when escaping from the home. A special plan should be made to provide assistance to them. All children should be taught the steps to follow when escaping from the home. They should be involved with making and practising the family home fire

Fire Prevention Week - Oct. 6 to 9

Smoke alarms do save lives P

roperly functioning smoke alarms provide an early warning of smoke and fire. They may be the only things standing between safe escape and being overcome by deadly gases.

Smoke alarms save lives. A smoke alarm becomes your “nose at night.” Most fatal fires occur during the night when people are sleeping. The smoke and poisonous gases emitted from a fire are deadly. People may be suffocated from the gases without being awakened or even realizing there is a fire.

Are there different types of smoke alarms?

Ionization Smoke Alarm An ionization smoke alarm monitors “ions,” which are electrically charged particles. The alarm sounds when the change in electrical balance reaches a pre-set level. Photoelectric Smoke Alarm The photoelectric smoke alarm uses a beam of light and a light sensor. The alarm sounds when the smoke density reaches a pre-set level. Both ionization and photoelectric alarms are acceptable and perform effectively provided they are installed and maintained correctly. Smoke alarms may be hard wired or battery operated. If you have hard wired smoke alarms, install battery operated smoke alarms on every floor in case of a power failure.

Smoke Alarms with Special Features

Special communication aids, which convert the sound of a smoke alarm into flashing lights or vibrations, are available for hearing impaired people.

Specialized alarms with a pause feature are available for the kitchen to prevent nuisance alarms. NOTE: When purchasing a smoke alarm, make sure that it has been tested to the CAN/ULC 5531-M STANDARD or by an approved testing agency.

Where should I place my smoke alarms?

The installation of smoke alarms is governed by provincial regulations, and local bylaws. To ensure compliance, check with your local jurisdiction. Read manufacturer’s instructions carefully and follow them exactly. It is recommended that smoke alarms be installed on every floor of your home and outside each sleeping area. For maximum protection, install a smoke alarm in every bedroom, especially if you sleep with your bedroom door closed. Since smoke rises, install smoke alarms high on a wall or on the ceiling. Keep smoke alarms away from anything that can blow smoke away from the sensor, such as windows, air registers and ceiling fans.

early warning of smoke or fire. It is your responsibility to get yourself and your family out of your home safely. You can save precious minutes by planning and practising your home fire escape drill. Planning and practising will help your family do the right thing. Plan and practise, your home escape plan, identifying two ways out of every room. Teach all family members to follow the home escape plan when the smoke alarm sounds. If it is safe to leave the room, stay below the smoke and leave by the quickest and safest route. If you must escape from the second floor or higher, plan a safe way to the ground. Install escape ladders for quick and safe evacuation. Go directly to your family meeting place and call 9-1-1 or your local emergency number from a neighbour’s phone. Do not re-enter the building until the fire department says it is “safe” to do so.

Smoke alarms should be tested and maintained in accordance with manufacturer’s instructions. Alarms should be tested once a month by pushing the test button and listening for the alarm. For battery operated smoke alarms, replace batteries at least once a year or for extended life batteries according to manufacturer’s instructions. Batteries should also be replaced when the smoke alarm makes a chirping sound. Smoke alarms should be cleaned, at least once every six months, by gently vacuuming the exterior. Smoke alarms do wear out and should be replaced at least every 10 years. Smoke alarms installed in or near the kitchen should include a pause feature.

If the smoke alarm goes off, what should I do?

ing from regularly maintained appliances that are properly ventilated is extremely low. But improperly installed, operated or poorly maintained appliances that use these fuels may create unsafe levels of CO. In enclosed spaces like your home, vehicle, cottage, boat, recreational vehicle or tent, even a small amount of CO is dangerous. Exposure to carbon monoxide causes flu-like symptoms such as headaches, nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, con-

fusion, impaired judgement, loss of manual dexterity, and even loss of consciousness. In severe cases, CO poisoning can cause brain damage and death. The elderly, children, people with heart and respiratory conditions and pets may be particularly sensitive to CO and may feel the effects sooner. When you buy a CO alarm, make sure it is certified to the latest Canadian Standards Association requirements. CSA Standard CAN/CGA - 6.19 was amended in 1999.

Be aware of carbon monoxide hazards

arbon monoxide (commonly known as CO) is a colourless, odourless toxic gas. When inhaled, CO interferes with the blood’s ability to absorb and transport oxygen. Carbon monoxide is produced when fuels are burned incompletely. Tobacco smoking, idling gasoline-powered vehicles, and the burning of oil, coal, wood, charcoal, kerosene, propane or natural gas can all produce carbon monoxide. The risk of carbon monoxide poison-

Part of their ‘game’

For Moreau, the day on the water meant the world to him. “It’s a bit of therapy.” For Hamel, it was extra special to be out chatting as a peer with lower-ranked military personnel, and those who have experienced mental injuries as he has. As for the current state of military support for those suffering with PTSD and other OSIs, Hamel said things have changed quite positively in the last decade. Ten years ago when he

to hockey and concussions: Not only are there no physical scars for others to see and understand, but the individuals in question want to get back on the ice—or in this case in the field—to support the team. “I’ve got the greatest admiration for Sidney Crosby who stepped up and admitted, ‘Hey, I’m injured,’” he said. “The stigma goes away and you learn to accept it’s part of the game. Well OSIs are part of our game.” While the seven veterans have faced battles of many kinds over their years in and out of the military, the trips with Werk’s fishing guides led to a battle of another kind, one that ended with the successful landing of a sevenfoot-two-inch sturgeon. For Moreau and the others, it was a therapeutic day on the water with peers who

Grant said having military vets as fishing guides “was the icing on the cake.” Chuck Hamel served three tours with army infantry, one in the Congo and two in Afghanistan. He suffered physical injuries but like many of the others on the trip, he suffered an occupational stress injury (OSI). (Hamel said he doesn’t like the term PTSD, although others use it.) For Hamel, the camaraderie among fellow injured soliders on the boats was particularly important because he is a senior officer. “It’s lonely at the top and you don’t really want to share your disabilities,” Hamel, who is still active in the military, told theTimes. He compares the situation he and others face with OSIs

brand new Vintage Audio Fair in Chilliwack drew audiophiles and collectors of vintage music equipment from as far away as Vancouver and the Okanagan Sunday. “I am a little surprised,” said organizer Karl Motz, looking around a packed Cultus Lake Community Hall. “It’s beyond my expectations, so I think we’ll be looking at a larger venue next year for sure.” Crates of vinyl records and tables piled high with turntables, speakers, tubes, knobs, meters, dials, record mats and more packed the tiny hall, and business was surprisingly brisk, according to out-of-towners like Vancouverite Ben Fan. He wasn’t sure the early morning trip up the valley would be worth it. “I didn’t think it would be,” he said, “but then I’ve sold quite a bit of stuff.” Vintage audio has a huge following, according to Motz, but Sunday’s fledgling fair also owes some of its success to Motz’s idea of bringing vinyl records

S

mall space gardeners who have now harvested most of their summer vegetables have several choices for occupying the bare earth in their containers as winter draws closer. Fall plantings of leafy crops may be successful if the weather co-operates, nurseries sell enticing leafy plants for winter containers or, closer to Christmas, you can get decorative berried branches, which can be thrust into the soil. One beautiful alternative is planting a bulb pot in at least one container that won’t be needed for spring vegetables. Early tulips are especially suitable since their flowers are usually over by the end of May and their leaves are dying back. This is especially good timing for adding nutrients to the pots and then putting in transplants of summer crops. Tomatoes and peppers are especially suitable for containers. People who would like to re-plant the tulips next fall can lift them, let the leaves finish withering in a community pot then then store them in absolutely dry conditions. The key to re-blooming is to keep them totally dry all through summer. This is how old-fashioned gardeners kept the same tulips going year after year. The species tulips such as the Gregii and the Kaufmannia group are mostly dwarf but they are the earliest and have pretty darkly spotted and speckled leaves. One of the few tall Gregii tulips is the red-flowered 20” (50 cm) ‘Casa Grande.’ The ‘Emperor’ series of tulips (Fosteriana) also blooms very early. Flower colours include orange, red, white and yellow in solids and bi-coloureds. The single and double early tulips also have many colours and large flowers. Double earlies are magnificent though they can end up face down in the mud if rain gets into their masses of petals. The major pest of container tulips is squirrels that love to dig the bulbs up and eat them. One way of foiling them is covering the pot with wire mesh. Pea mesh can also work though best double-layered and securely

ANNE MARRISON

Green Thumb fastened. The whole range of spring bulbs can be forced over winter, unearthed bit by bit as shoots appear in January or early February and brought inside. Development and blooming speeds up once they are exposed to house temperatures. Hyacinths are the most popular. Generally the shorter spring bulbs including crocuses, scilla and Iris reticulata make the best windowsill displays because they don’t lean. The taller tulips and daffodils tend to flop unless you stake them. Forcing bulbs means giving them a period of moist cold which works best if you can

keep them outside by placing the planted pots in a shallow pit in the garden The pots should be covered with leaves, straw, bean vines, cut up corn stalks or something else light and airy which allows access in freezing cold. Grass clippings don’t work because they pack down too tightly. People with no outside garden can try forcing bulbs in pots in a garage or carport. This is quite doable but is more work than forcing bulbs out in a garden because the bulbs need to be covered so that they’re in the dark and watered regularly. All forced bulbs can be planted outside as soon as possible and those fed after blooming can flower the next spring. Hyacinths are especially successful planted outside. ◗ Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her via amarrison@shaw.ca.

Prevent tip-over accidents

M

odern conveniences in a home are meant to be enjoyed. However, items such as televisions, appliances and furniture can prove quite dangerous when they are involved in tip-over accidents. The Consumer Product Safety Commission says between the years of 2008 and 2010, 43,400 Americans were treated in hospital emergency rooms for injuries related to the instability of televisions, furniture and appliances. Between the years of 2000 and 2010, 293 fatalities were reported, the highest percentage of which were among children ages one to eight. Fifty-two percent of injuries involved only furniture falling. Data from the Brooke’s Angel Wings, an organization that hopes to raise awareness about the dangers of unsecured furniture and televisions, says every two weeks a child loses his or her life to an accident involving unsecured furniture or televisions in the home. Fortunately, tip-over deaths and injuries are preventable. Individuals making improvements around their homes may want to give special attention to renovations that can improve safety in and around the house. One of the first steps to take is securing furniture and televisions to prevent tipover accidents. One of the single easiest methods to preventing tip-over injuries is to anchor furniture, televisions and appliances to the wall. All furniture with shelves, drawers and doors—anything that can be climbed or pulled over by curious children—should be anchored into a stud with an appropriate device. Even if an item seems stable or heavy, some simple precautionary measures can help prevent an injury and possibly save

a life. Many different safety devices that can prevent tip-over accidents are now available. Products from Safety First to Kidco to Hangman all offer furniture straps to secure items. However, do-it-yourselfers can use “L” brackets as well as other bolts and hardware that are sturdy enough to hold the weight of a fully loaded piece of furniture. Remember, walls can always be repaired should damage occur from bolts and straps. But lives cannot be replaced. Flat screen televisions are safer when mounted on a wall than they are when placed atop a piece of furniture. If televisions are on a TV stand, they should be secured to the surface. Homeowners hoping to prevent tip-over accidents can follow these tips. ◗ When loading dresser drawers, put the heaviest items at the bottom and the lightest items in the top drawers. ◗ Do not put things on top of dressers that may entice children to climb up the dresser. ◗ Keep items you do not want children to have out of sight. ◗ Do not assume children will remember the dangers associated with climbing or always follow the rules. ◗ Don’t forget to also secure computer monitors. ◗ Check safety straps frequently to be sure they are still secure. ◗ Think about other items around the house that can present a danger were they to fall. Secure everything and anything that is large and could cause injury if it fell down onto a person. Homeowners should not put off securing items around the house. Spending five minutes now can prevent a tragedy later on.

Fall perfect time for home improvment projects

H

ome improvement projects can add value to a home and do-it-yourselfers know the sweat-equity that goes into such projects can give homeowners a greater sense of pride in their homes. But no two home improvement projects are the same, and homeowners should know that certain projects are best tackled during certain times of the year. Fall is a great season to work on your house, as the weather is often at its most agreeable once the summer heat has gone and before winter weather arrives. The following are a handful of fall-friendly home improvement projects for homeowners looking to improve their homes. Roof repair Whether you’re repairing or replacing the roof, fall is a great time of year to dust off the ladder and get some work done on your roof for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, fall is ideal for roof work because you won’t have to be up on the roof with the summer heat bearing down on you. This can make the project move along more quickly, which is especially beneficial if you are paying labourers to work on the roof. The fewer hours workers are fixing your roof, the less you will be paying in labor costs. In addition, fixing up the roof in the fall ensures those winter storms, be it rain or snow, won’t find their way into your home via leaks. A leaky roof in winter is hard to fix, as the roof surface could be treacherous in the winter and winter winds can make it dangerous to be up on the roof at all. Addressing leaks in the fall can prevent damage to your home’s interior, which can mount up if a leaky roof is not addressed until the following spring. Window work When the weather outside gets frightful, poorly insulated windows can allow cold air into the home. That often has a trickle-down effect on finances, forcing you to turn up the thermostat in an attempt to offset the cold air pouring into the home. Whether you need your windows replaced or simply need to patch up any leaks, a proactive approach to leaky or older windows in the fall can save you from unnecessarily high heating bills come the winter. Addressing leaky windows also makes a home more comfortable for its inhabitants. Fall is the ideal time to address a home’s windows because the temperature outside tends to be pleasant. This means you likely won’t have to make much of an effort to offset the elements,

Agreeable weather makes fall season an ideal time to spruce up your home

and open windows in the fall won’t make your home’s interior very hot or cold like they might if you were to tackle the project during the summer or winter. Fixing the floors Wood flooring is a hot commodity for many homeowners. But not all flooring can be added to a home at any time of year. That’s because certain types of flooring employ adhesives that need temperatures inside the home to be within a certain range, and that range is often within 21 to 27 C, which makes fall a great time to install such floors. Colder temperatures can make it difficult for the flooring to dry and bond,

which will prove problematic down the road. What’s more, many people entertain friends and family come late fall and into the holiday season, and it can be difficult to do so if you are busy installing new flooring. Painting projects Painting is another home improvement project that seems tailor-made for fall. A fresh coat of paint or a new colour scheme around the house can give a home an entirely new look and feel. But paint can be pungent and the aromas may last if it’s applied at a time of year when it can’t dry while the windows are wide open. Paint fumes inside a home can make the

home uninhabitable, but painting at a time of year like the fall, when you can keep the windows open during and after the project, can help air the home out. But interior painting isn’t the only painting project homeowners can tackle in the fall. Many exterior paints are temperature-sensitive and need the temperature outside to be above 4 C. Paint that freezes won’t dry properly, and homeowners might be left with a costly and unsightly mistake on their hands. Fall temperatures tend to be amenable to both interior and exterior painting projects, just be sure to check the weather forecast before making your first brush stroke.

Tips for

unclogging drains C

logged drains can be a nuisance. And if left untreated, that minor nuisance can turn into an expensive repair. A number of different things can cause drains to clog. Food particles, hair, grease, soap residue, oil and even a foreign object lodged in the drain can each cause a drain to clog. Before you have to call a plumber, there are steps to take that may get water flowing once more.

the clog. Repeatedly forcing water against a clog can move it along until it frees up the drain. Plunging can be messy, so wear old clothes when plunging. Make sure the head of the plunger is filled with water; otherwise, your work will be for naught. You may want to keep a separate plunger handy for sink work so you are not transferring bacteria and waste from a toilet plunger into the sink, especially in the kitchen.

Bubbles Galore Baking soda has many uses in the home. This versatile product can be used dislodge items in drains. It is better to try baking soda when clogs are minor and water drainage is sluggish rather than waiting for the clog to get so bad that water is impenetrable. When baking soda and common household vinegar are mixed together, they form a new chemical called carbonic acid. This acid immediately begins to degrade into carbon dioxide gas, which produces foam and bubbles in the process. This bubbling action can upset the source of a clog in a pipe and dislodge particles that may be causing the water backup. Keep your face away from the drain as the smell of vinegar mixing with the baking soda may be unpleasant. Baking soda also can be mixed with salt and boiling water to break down grease that may be clogging drains. Repeatedly washing this mixture down drains can gently scour pipes and keep water moving steadily.

Pop and fizz Colas are loaded with phosphoric acid, which is more acidic than lemon juice and is also corrosive. This acid will fizz in the drain and break through any greasy, stubborn residue. It’s even effective at dissolving calcium deposits, which may be a byproduct of hard water.

Plunge ahead If a clog is especially stubborn, you may need to use a plunger. A plunger works by forcing the energy you push on the plunger into the surrounding water, which then applies pressure against

Snake it Some clogs are more stubborn and require some extra elbow grease to fix. A pipe snake can push hair and other debris through the pipes until water can run free. They also can be used to pull the obstacle back up out of the drain. While there are snakes of various lengths, sometimes a small one that makes it just to the bend of the elbow trap can be sufficient. A snake is essentially a flexible piece of wire that is inserted in the pipe. It may have a coarse or wound end to ensnare a clog. Call a plumber Unless you feel confident taking pipes apart to check for and clear out clogs and then reassembling everything, you may need to call a plumber if the clog will not relent. It may be lower in the system than at house level, especially if there are clogs in multiple sinks or appliances in the home.

New Homes Registry Keeps Homebuyers Informed This helpful, easy-to-use, online resource is available from the Homeowner Protection Office (HPO) website at www.hpo.bc.ca. Savvy homebuyers are using it to make more informed purchasing decisions. The New Homes Registry provides free access to find out if a home has a policy of home warranty insurance and is built by a Licensed Residential Builder, or whether it’s built without home warranty insurance. Homebuyers can obtain valuable information such as the name and contact number of the warranty provider, the builder’s warranty number and whether an ownerbuilt home can be legally offered for sale. Every new home built for sale by a Licensed Residential Builder in British Columbia is protected by mandatory third-party home warranty insurance. Better known as 2-5-10 home warranty insurance, this coverage includes: two years on labour and materials, five years on the building envelope (including water penetration), and 10 years on the structure. It’s the strongest system of construction defect insurance in Canada. For free access to the New Homes Registry visit the Homebuyers section of the HPO website.
