Urged to vaccinate against measles
he Fraser Health Authority is urging residents of the eastern Fraser Valley to get vaccinated against measles after about 60 women and newborns were exposed to the highly contagious disease at the Abbotsford Regional Hospital and Cancer Centre. “The exposure of newborn children to this virus is a very concerning situation,” Fraser Health chief medical officer Paul Van Buynder stated in a press release Thursday. “They are too young to respond to the vaccine and some will not have received protection in utero from their mothers . . . It is a timely reminder that not vaccinating children can have consequences for EB IRST other vulnerable First reported on infants.” Relatively low chilliwacktimes.com immunization ra t e s i n s o m e parts of Abbotsford, Mission, Chilliwack, Agassiz, Harrison Hot Springs and Hope have led to several “clusters” of the virus in those communities in previous years, according to Fraser Health, the most recent being in April 2010 shortly after the Olympic Games. The most effective protection against the disease is two doses of vaccine, health officials said. The vaccination is free to all those born after 1957, People who suspect they have been exposed to measles or have developed symptoms, should see their medical practitioner but should notify the medical practitioner’s office before arriving in order to prevent the spread of the disease to other patients. The families exposed to measles at the Abbotsford hospital, meanwhile, will be contacted by health officials directly.

Attendance up at this year’s Chilliwack Fair BY CORNELIA NAYLOR email@example.com
ttendance at the Chilliwack Fair was up 15 per cent last weekend despite the absence of a midway again this year. “Overall we had a really positive response from everyone,” fair coordinator Brett McCarthy told the Times. New additions to the three-day event were a big hit. The “moo-ternity” pen, which featured cows in labour, witnessed the birth of six calves over the weekend.
SEE MORE PHOTOS layar “Everyone loved it. Every time there was one giving birth, we had big crowds,” McCarthy said A new—and surprisingly handson—reptile display by the Reptile Guy (Abbotsford’s Mike Hopcraft) also drew crowds, as did Future West Promotions’ first motocross at the fair. “They had a couple race days and they all really enjoyed it, and spectators liked it too,” McCarthy said.
The absence of big, flashy rides was the only hitch. Securing a midway provider has been an ongoing struggle, McCarthy said, because there are only two such companies in B.C., and companies coming from outside the province have to pay $2,000 to get each of their rides certified. “That adds $20,000 onto their bill,” McCarthy said. With cities competing over only two providers, Chilliwack usually loses out to the B.C. Northern Exhibition in Prince George when the two events fall on the same weekend as they did this year.

empers among local First Nations fishers flared Friday when they were told there would be no sockeye opening on their stretch of the Fraser River over the weekend and only an abbreviated 12-hour opening for Chinook. “We’re pretty pissed off,” Lower Fraser Fishers’ Alliance co-chair Ken Malloway told the Times after a heated conference call with fisheries managers Friday. “Normally this time of the year we fish three times a week, from Thursday to Sunday. But now we’re being cut back and cut back. We haven’t had a regular fishery yet this year.” The Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) has allowed no commercial or sport harvest of sockeye from the Fraser so far this season, and First Nations in the area have had only limited openings for food and ceremonial purposes: one for 24 hours, another for 48 hours and a limited-participation dry-rack fishery in July. Malloway and other local First Nations fishers were angry at being denied a sockeye opening this weekend because openings for aboriginal fishers above and below their stretch of the river (above the Port Mann Bridge and below Sawmill Creek) haven’t been shut down, and they say local sport fishers are going after sockeye illegally close to home.

Kai Manning was serving up lemonade and cookies on Henley Street to raise money for B.C. Children’s Hospital last week.
He’s taking a lemonade stand against cancer & raising funds BY CORNELIA NAYLOR firstname.lastname@example.org
ai Manning’s dad didn’t come to his first day of school or his first football practice, and he’s not going to be there next time the family goes on a trip. If it wasn’t for cancer, none of that would be true, so this week the local nine-year-old set up a lemonade stand in front of his house to raise money for a cure. ”I just want them to find something, mix stuff up and find the cure for it,” he told the Times. It’s too late to change what happened to his dad, who died of cancer four years ago, but he doesn’t want other families to go through what his family did, he said, so all the money he earns will go to B.C. Children’s Hospital in Vancouver. “Basically finding the cure would help the kids because then they wouldn’t have it any more and then they could live a nice happy life,” he said.
“It’s so refreshing to know that there is so much good out there, between my co-workers pitching in a few dollars and this young man taking time out of his summer on a bright sunny day, when other kids were running through sprinklers, to do what he thought was right .”
Const. Kevin Morris After modest sales on his first day Tuesday, donations spiked when a local RCMP officer posted Kai’s story on Facebook. Const. Kevin Morris was in the neighbourhood in his squad car when Kai’s stand at the corner of Henley Avenue
and Harrison Street caught his eye. “It immediately took me back to when I was a young boy, trying to save up a few bucks for something I wanted,” Morris said in his online post. His heart broke, he said, when he heard Kai’s story. The Mountie scrounged up all the change he could find on the spot, and then returned again later with donations from co-workers as well. “It’s so refreshing to know that there is so much good out there, between my co-workers pitching in a few dollars and this young man taking time out of his summer on a bright sunny day, when other kids were running through sprinklers, to do what he thought was right,” Morris said. With Morris’s Facebook post, Kai’s stand really took off, putting total donations past $700 by Friday morning. “I figured he’d get 20 bucks or something and we’d drive it out to Vancouver, make a day of it,” Kai’s mom Amanda said. “It’s a lot more than 20 bucks now.”

“They’re fishing for sockeye above us, they’re fishing for sockeye in front of us, they’re fishing for sockeye amongst us,” Malloway said. Fisheries managers and local First Nations had discussed a possible opening for sockeye over the weekend on Wednesday, but updates in technical information forced a last-minute change, according to DFO acting area chief of resource management Brigid Payne. “Intheinterim,andthisoften happens with Fraser sockeye management unfortunately, there was a fairly significant change in the outlook for the stocks and the assessment of how many fish there were available for harvest,” she said. The main problems are low returns and a spike in water temperature, which has been shown to cause severe stress and early mortality for sockeye. “We had to alter management plans to allow more fish to go through the system,” Payne said. As for allowing First Nations above the Port Mann and below Sawmill Creek to continue to fish for sockeye, Payne said those openings have been ramped down.. Payne declined to speculate on future openings until after the Fraser River panel meets again today (Tuesday).

Contact Centre a place for positive change BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
ee Anne Hanson’s goal is ambitious: zero people in Chilliwack at risk of homelessness and no more than a handful of chronically homeless people living on the streets. But as Chilliwack’s new Health Contact Centre looks to take in its first residents later this month, Hanson—who as addiction services manager for the Pacific Community Resources Society (PCRS) has spent eight years bringing the project to fruition—is confident the battle against homelessness will be won. The contact centre, she told the Times, “is the realization of the dreams of the community and a realization of gaps in services actually fulfilled in one location. This centre has the great opportunity to be able to fulfill those gaps in services for that target population.” To understand the scale of that goal—and the achievement if it’s achieved—one just needs to look at the 2011 homeless count, when 111 people were found living without a home. Even that triple-digit figure likely underestimated the size of the local homeless population. Hanson said the shelter at Ruth and Naomi’s, which opened last year, has “taken the edge off” the scale
Pacific Community Resource Society’s Lee Anne Hanson and Sam Mohan are getting set to admit the first residents to the Chilliwack Health and Housing Contact Centre. “With this centre, we hope that homeless people. Now we’re actually of the problem, as have other local services.

The centre will serve more than residents; it features an in-patient medical clinic, counselling and addictions programs and employment services. Behind the building, a communal garden is planned. Some of those programs are already being offered and stakeholders hope to admit the first slate of residents by the end of August, Hanson said. When the location of the centre was first announced in 2011, it met some opposition from local residents. But as the centre ramps up to full operation and prepares for its first residents, Hanson is confident the community will embrace it. “I’m not worried about backlash because I think we’re working diligently to have the community involvement,” she said. “We’re collaborative, we’re inclusive.” As evidence, Hanson and site supervisor Sam Mohan pointed to an advisory committee that includes various stakeholders from around Chilliwack. “I see that already from just the responses of people who have called me,” said Hanson, who noted one local group had volunteered to hand knit quilts for the centre’s residents. “It’s not going to be a place where negative things happen, but where positive change becomes very well known.”

First Nations band together to study power projects BY TYLER OLSEN firstname.lastname@example.org
First Nations tribe is looking to develop a plan that could have a major impact on the future of run-of-river power projects in the Chilliwack River Valley. There are active claims to four different creeks in the valley, but before they proceed, the proponents must consult with the Ts’elxwéyeqw Tribe, a society that includes seven different local bands.
Wi t h t h e f i r s t p r o j e c t — o n Tamihi Creek—in the works, the Ts’elxwéyeqw (which used to be known as the Ch-ihl-kway-uhk) is now developing a comprehensive plan that will look at the impact of power projects on the river valley as a whole rather than on a case-bycase basis. “Pretty much every creek in the Chilliwack RiverValley has some sort of claim to it,” Ts’elxwéyeqw chief operations officer Matt Wealick told the Times. “We are looking at how
they all work together” The four creeks with active claims are Nesakwatch, Centre, Frosst, and Tamihi creeks. Proponents of run-ofriver projects usually focus on issues surrounding their own projects. But Wealick notes that such projects do not exist within a vacuum. (Individually, power projects may have a minor impact on the valley. But multiple projects can have larger, cumulative effects). Although the creeks do not lie within a reserve, legislation requires
any resource development on Crown land to include consultation and accommodation of First Nations. “We want to know how it’s going impact on cultural values, how it will impact the recreation in the Chilliwack River Valley, how it will impact our forestry businesses, how it will impact any other particular use,” Wealick said. “Is the infrastructure there to handle all of them?” Earlier this year, local kayakers expressed their concerns about power development on the Tamihi.
Wealick said First Nations groups share many of the same concerns of recreation users; he said the tool being developed by the Ts’elxwéyeqw would also look at how the power projects impact other users of the river. The Ts’elxwéyeqw has received $30,000 from the provincial government towards completing the plan. “I think it’s going to be a good tool to help assess these things,” he said. “For us, we just get tired of doing one project at a time.”

Chris Sartori checks on the hops plants growing on his Chilliwack-area farm. Sartori grows a few different varieties and has found local micro breweries like his hops.
Bitter hop a sweet treat for craft beer drinkers BY GLENDA LUYMES The Province
n the hillside above Chris Sartori’s farmhouse is a strange sight. Rows of leafy vines rise from the rolling ranchland, stretching 18 feet high to the top of a cable system that holds them in a V shape. A soft breeze sets the vines swaying, as warm sunlight flickers on the grass below. This morning, Sartori is checking his crop at the Sartori Cedar Ranch. While some of the vines are still in flower, others already bear the small cones that will be harvested in early September. He crushes the green fruit in his hands and inhales.

An opportunity to complain
he weather is a lot like politics—what you want most is mostly what we don’t have . . . right now. We just went through several weeks of some of the hottest, driest weather on record. In fact, depending on how you measure it (and precisely where you take your measurements), we may just have had the driest July ever in the Lower Mainland. Indeed, not a drop of rain was recorded throughout the entire month in any official recording station in Vancouver. And Vancouver also broke its previous record for hours of sunshine in July—which I would expect translates to a similar record for the rest of us in the outlying hinterlands. And let’s be clear about this: the record broken was for the most hours of sunshine in a single July—410 hours of sun peeking from behind previously ubiquitous clouds, veritably smashing the old 409.3-hour mark set in 1985. Imagine that! Sunny Vancouver! (David Duchovny, eat your heart out!) You’d think such a record would make people happy—ecstatic, even—especially considering that, like Mr. Duchovny (he’s the fellow who had the entire X-Files show transported south to escape our supposedly dreary climes, remember?), com-
Be Our Guest plaining about the incessant rain, rain, rain is one of our favourite pastimes. In fact, I heard a lot of people were complaining about the hot, hot, hot with no respite—way too hot. Admittedly, I rarely heard a single complaint about it having been too dry (except from those unfortunates among us—myself included—who depend on groundwater and a dug well for our sustenance and to feed the gardening monkey we carry on our backs). But the heat? Way too darned hot! Until recently. When I woke up one recent morning, the first thing that I noticed was that the fan blowing air into my bedroom window was blowing cool air—almost wintery, by recent standards. And when I looked out, I rejoiced! There was water falling from the sky—only a little bit, at first, but it picked up momentum, and soon there was a veritable deluge. The plants in my garden heaved a collective sigh
of relief. The lawn began turning green again, almost immediately. But when I made my way from the nether reaches of my backyard and into the clutches of civilized company, the story was suddenly different. Complaints of “way too darned hot” had already reverted to: “Way too darned cold, way too darned wet—why don’t we ever get a real summer around here?” The very people who had only days earlier vociferously complained of hot, sticky, sweatstained T-shirts and having no way to escape from the sun’s harsh ultra-violet rays assaulting us with threats of deadly cancers were now bemoaning the fickle—dreary-again—climate that routinely drenches our landscapes and drowns our dreams of natural tans . . . which we all avoid when the sun does make its occasional appearance. There’s no pleasing us. We are a species of complainers. I said the weather is like politics? Actually, it’s our perception of the weather that is like our perception of politics. Whatever we have right now isn’t good enough—we want it to be something better, by tomorrow. And if tomorrow comes with any kind of change, it’s never as good as it was. ◗ Bob Groeneveld is editor of the Langley Advance.
t’s the silly season in news, so it’s no surprise that everyone on the planet heard about the Great Fatberg of London about five minutes after it was discovered. The fatberg, so named by Thames Water, is the largest single lump of congealed lard ever found in the London sewer system. It was so big, it was preventing nearby residents from flushing their toilets. Things could have turned much worse than a few backed up toilets, however. “If we hadn’t discovered it in time, raw sewage could have started spurting out of manholes across the whole of Kingston,” said Gordon Hailwood, a waste contracts supervisor for Thames Water. The sizeable pipe is now being repaired, and this will no doubt cause some inconvenience and grumbling. No one likes navigating around ripped up roads, and it’s not exactly cheap to replace major pieces of public infrastructure like this. That said, we should take this as an opportunity to give thanks to those who keep our sewer and water pipes blessedly far from our minds most of the time. It is a miracle of modern life in the affluent west that we flush toilets and turn on taps, and expect everything to flow. We flip light switches and expect light, we go into buildings and don’t worry that they might collapse and crush us. Of course, there are exceptions, but when a bridge or shopping mall collapses, or when water is poisoned by bacteria, or when fatbergs form in the sewers, these things make the news because they are exceptions. Building cities and making them run is a pretty thankless task most of the time. So let us now thank the labourers and contractors and engineers who do that work. We promise we will stop pouring grease down the drain, and cutting holes in loadbearing walls, and ignoring the fire safety codes. At least for now.

Bottom line for caregivers needs to be considered Editor: I wanted to share my experience as a supervisor for a health care agency in the 90s. in provinding care for at home clients. Supplying consistent workers was a constant challenge for a few basic reasons. Firstly, workers were assigned to blocks of time at a client’s house. E.g. 8 to 10 a.m. then 2 to 4 p.m. at another house. They seldom were given full eight hour shifts because of the nature of the services needed. Occasionally they were assigned to live-in assignments in which they would stay 24 hours a day—and sleep in the client’s home—an obstacle for caregivers with kids. The wage home support workers received was close to minimum. The bus services to and from assignments were limited. Their wages rarely covered the expense of a car. Needless to say, many were recruited, but many found it hard to make a living wage with the limitations of the assignments. They moved on to group homes or facilities. As the liason to the clients, I sincerely sympathized with their desire to have a consistent caregiver that they could get to know and trust. I occasionally provided care myself when workers called in sick to help minimize the disruption of service. I don’t know what the answer is. Providing a shuttle service would be logisitcally impossible as service is provided by so many workers over such a wide area. I think if workers had backto-back assignments (as close together as possible) to construct a full work day,
Where’s the compassion? Editor: Re: Aug. 6 Times story “The strain of relying on others.” I am a family member to a Home Support client.

bed to chair or vice versa. Home Support, give your head a shake and show some compassion for what families and clients go through. In my opinion, Home Support has gone downhill severely over the years. First they take away cooking, cleaning and odd jobs, so now clients get less time and most can’t afford to get house cleaners in as well. I know a few clients that, while support workers are there, they could easily do a bit of cleaning or odd jobs, like changing a light bulb. Home Support, can you tell me how a quadriplegic is supposed to change a light bulb? No—I didn’t think so. Personal care is called personal care because it’s personal. When you have 20 different workers coming in and you don’t know who it will be, it’s very stressful. I’m sure every client has their preference to which ones do
a good job for their needs and which ones don’t. The client should have a say in this as well. I know, on occasion, when I’ve been told they had no one to come, that there were girls that could have and would have. My suggestion to address some of these problems would be that the scheduling should be done days in advance and that they do their job with some dignity and respect and they will get the same in return.

Mind our own business
rights is not set in stone. The Russian people, through their leader, declare that Hollywood morality is to be discourage, punished if necessary. Hey, this is a mighty modern nation. So their laws are different. In many states of the USA same-sex marriage is illegal. Also in many countries, especially the Muslim nations. Could we mind our own affairs, like native treaties, child poverty, homelessness, etc. For some people it is black and white, not rainbow. Al Kosub Chilliwack

THREAD: Cougar shot on Teapot Hill Responses Cheryl Mount
I don’t get why relocation for the cougar wasn’t an option? Why kill it when it did nothing wrong? Seems really cruel.
I think the problem was that it was not scared of people at all making it very unpredictable and with it being in camp sites where little kids are playing do you really want to chance it?
If that cat meant any harm to these people they would be dead, conservation officer did not manage to conserve anything here.

Huskers buck losing ways
On deck Huskers in Nanaimo
The Valley Huskers hit the road this weekend to take on the Vancouver Island Raiders. Game time is Saturday at 4 p.m. The game can be watched online by visiting www.chilliwackhuskers. com and following the links.
BY TYLER OLSEN firstname.lastname@example.org
he Valley Huskers are no longer the worst team in the British Columbia Football Conference. Indeed, after hanging on in the fourth quarter to beat the Kamloops Broncos 33-30 Saturday, the Huskers now find themselves in third place in the British Columbia Football Conference. The Huskers and Broncos had battled to a tie the previous week. But whereas the Huskers had continually found themselves settling for three points during the two teams’ first meeting, on Saturday, Valley made their chances count. Receiver Dylan Boykowich scored two touchdowns and registered his second-consecutive 100-yard game for the Huskers. Ty DeRayos scored the Huskers’ other touchdown and rushed for 50 yards on 14 carries. Quarterback Cody Parray completed 13 of 26 passes for 167 yards. Huskers coach Tyson St. James said his team’s work made the difference. “Our guys really worked hard for that,” he said. “At the end of the day, you teach them what you can but it comes down to them wanting it.” While the Broncos finished with more yards offensively,

Briggs wins jr. tourney
Hugo Yuen/THE DAILY NEWS
Kamloops Broncos running back Jacob Palmarin, gets caught up with Chilliwack Huskers Hayden Jeffries Saturday evening at Hillside Stadium in Kamloops. the Huskers won the field position game. Kicker Dan Erickson, who had been named the BCFC’s special teams player of the preceding week, averaged more than 50 yards on nine punts, forcing the Broncos’ erratic offence to march the ball down field. By comparison, the punts of the Broncos’ kicker averaged less than 40 yards. The Huskers also blocked a punt, which led to a key Valley touchdown late in the third quarter. Erickson, who was named the player of the game, also kicked three
field goals, the longest from 45 yards. “Dan Erickson has been playing well,” St. James said. “His protection’s good. He’s been able to punt the ball well, and field goals he’s been doing great.” Returner Josh Hayden racked up the return yards, finishing with 176 yards on 10 kickoff and punt returns. St. James was also pleased with his team’s ability to score when they found themselves close to the end zone. “Our goal was to be hungry in the red zone,” he said.
ole Briggs shot a two-over-par 74 Friday at Royalwood Golf Course to claim top prize in the 2013 Fraser Valley Junior Golf Tournament. Briggs finished the four-round tournament with an even-par score of 276, two shots better than Jake Scarrow, who shot a 70 at Royalwood.
“We got the field position we needed and we capitalized.” The Huskers still had a little bit of a scare late; Valley led 30-16 late in the fourth quarter before the Broncos scored two touchdowns in quick succession. Only an Erickson field goal guaranteed the Huskers their first victory of the year and moved them into a playoff spot. Admittedly, the BCFC season is only three games old and the Huskers have played two of those games against the Broncos, who aren’t all that great. But three points
Chilliwack’s Connor McLennan, who had entered the final day of the tourney tied with Briggs, shot a 77 to finish third. The tournament included stops at Cultus Lake, Chilliwack and Meadowlands golf clubs. McLennan, 17, and Briggs, 16, each won their respective age categories.
from three games is something to be celebrated, especially since the Huskers had only claimed two points from their previous three seasons entering 2013. St. James said the early success of this year’s squad is a tribute not only to the players on the field, but also to the support from the sidelines, where a renewed group of boosters has given the club a base on which to build. “I really like the fact that we were able to do this for them, and show them their hard work is paying off in some
Nathan Bahnmann, who finished the tournament 11 shots back of Briggs, was the top 15-year-old, while 14-year-old Josh Banford won his age category. Christopher Dale was the top 13-yearold, Ryan Alexander won the 12-yearold crown, while Brian Dale was the top 11-year-old.

Bronze medal for shot putter
h i l l i w a c k t h r ow e r Tasha Willing pulled out a personal-best performance at the Legion National Youth Track and Field Championships in Langley last weekend to win bronze in midget girls shot put. Ranked fifth going into the event Friday, Willing threw 11.72 metres, just 46 centimetres shy of the gold-medal throw by Ontario’s Grace Tennant. In discus and hammer Willing lived up to her pre-
meet rankings, taking sixth in discus with a throw of 32.87 metres Saturday and fourth in hammer with a throw of 44.66 metres Sunday. “She is a little disappointed but does not realize the magnitude of being third, fourth and sixth in Canada,” Willing’s mom Marcy said. “All the provinces best were here and had to qualify by being first or second in their own provincial championships and also meet the Canadian standards.”

GRANLEY FAMILY AIRSHOWS
www.chilliwackairshow.ca PETE MCLEOD RACING
The Father / Son Duo of Bud & Ross Granley have been entertaining the residents of Chilliwack and surrounding communities for the past 10 years consecutively, Bud ﬂying his T-6 and Yak 55, then joined by son Ross in 2003 ﬂying the Yak 18 in the dueling Yak show. Who’s the better pilot? (they’ve both answered that question at one time or another) come join them at the 2013 Chilliwack Airshow and ask them yourselves, while they sign autographs in the signing tent Sunday August 18th, 2013. Bud is returning to the airshow for his 14th consecutive year, while Ross is returning for his 10th. Come on out and watch them.
New to the Chilliwack Airshow this year but not new to the aviation circuit. In 2009, Pete McLeod of Red Lake, Ontario made history by becoming the youngest pilot and ﬁrst Canadian to compete in the elite Red Bull Air Race World Championship. Over two decades younger than the average pilot in the world championship, Pete turned heads and quickly earned the respect of his rivals with his impressively smooth and precise ﬂying. His personality quickly made him a favorite with fans. Pete’s 2009 rookie campaign was a development year as the Canadian built his team for long-term success. Entering the season with the heaviest and slowest plane in the ﬁeld, Pete still managed to get the most out of his Edge 540 and gain valuable experience.
TEAM ROCKET AEROBATICS
Veteran airshow pilot and performer John Mrazek along with his Harvard Mark IV, “Pussycat II,” will dazzle audiences, spectators, or anyone watching with a spectacular aerial ballet. With lots of noise, smoke, and skill, John’s aerobatic performance will bring the entire airshow crowd to a standstill.John is a well known aerobatic airshow performer with over twenty ﬁve years experience ﬂying the airshow circuit. When John is not ﬂying airshows, he is instructing in the art of aerobatics, formation ﬂying, and ﬂoat ﬂying. John also acts as an ICAS approved Airshow Certiﬁcate Evaluator.
SUPERDAVE & the SHEYDEN MX2
A two ship combination with Eric Hansen in the F1 Rocket, and Ken Fowler in the Harmon Rocket II. Precision, speed, and high performance aerobatics at it’s best….a spectacular show that will bring the crowd to their feet. Ken and Eric have been performing together in formation for 6 years. As a team they are dynamic and fast. They are the only team of this aircraft type, in the Air Show industry. Flight Fest is fortunate to have Team Rocket Perform their Night Show on Saturday August 17th.. Truly an awesome spectacle! Ken and Eric combine their high speed capabilities with an aerobatic routine and outstanding ﬁreworks display. All of this, set to music. ‘Stars in the Sky’ will dazzle onlookers and provide a night show to remember.
Chilliwack’s own Dave Mathieson and the Scheyden MX2, better known as “Super Dave” in the airshow community, was voted the #1 aerobatic pilot in Canada… by his mom. (It’s on the side of his airplane, so it has to be true!) Mathieson currently ﬂies the world’s most advanced aerobatic aircraft called the MX2. The aircraft is designed for plus or minus 16Gs, and has an incredible roll rate of 500 degrees per second and is powered by a 380HP motor giving the aircraft a top speed of 300 MPH.
One of the most important ﬁghters ever built, the Supermarine Spitﬁre catches our memory for helping win the Battle of Britain in 1940, but this elegant and agile plane played a host of roles worldwide from 1936–1957. Its fragile, almost dainty appearance belied a superior performance and hard-hitting ﬁrepower that made it a formidable opponent in aerial combat. The Spitﬁre was a pilot’s dream to ﬂy, a lethal ﬁghter, and a delight to watch. It could take off and land on an airstrip or a patch of cornﬁeld. It ﬂew in turn for dogﬁghts, escort missions, aerial performances, front-line defense, and combat training. This aircraft is now owned by the Historic Flight Foundation located at Payne Field in WA State.
CANADIAN MUSEUM OF FLIGHT
NORTH AMERICAN B-25 MITCHELL The B-25 Mitchell fought in every theatre of the Second World War and operated in many roles, including tactical bombing, tank busting and anti shipping strikes. B-25s served with the RCAF between 1944 and 1962 - most of them after WW II. The aircraft that you will see at Flight Fest is named “Grumpy” and it’s ﬂight path began in 1943, training US Army Air Force pilots. In 1944, she was transferred to the Royal Air Force as part of the Lend\Lease program and worked for the Royal Canadian Air Force. Though her work was quiet, she trained crews to ﬂy B-24 Liberators for the critical aerial offensive in Southeast Asia. Post-war, it’s probable that she spent time in storage, but also joined auxiliary bombing units responsible for defending western Canada. This aircraft is now owned by the Historic Flight Foundation located at Payne Field in WA State
The Canadian Museum of Flight located at the Langley Airport is home to both ﬂying and static aircraft ranging from WWI with a replica SE5A, a WWII Westland Lysander and the CT-114 Tutor ﬂown by the Canadian Forces Snowbirds. In the Hangar you will ﬁnd displays on early British Columbian aviation pioneers and outside a vast collection of Aircraft engines. Plan a day of it and visit the Museum which is open daily from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 pm

The world’s oldest beverage has proven itself remarkably adaptable, and brewmasters have tapped into the local food movement to create buzz. “There’s more craft brewers in B.C. now than there has been at
any other time,” beer educator Ken Beattie said. The executive director of the B.C. craft brewers guild estimates the number of brewers and brew pubs in the province has more than doubled in five years, from about 35 in 2007 to more than 60 by the end of 2013. According to Province beer blogger Jan Zeschky, beer made from fresh Sartori hops has become one of B.C.’s most anticipated smallbatch beers.
E a c h f a l l , V i c t o r i a’s Dr i f t wood Brewery produces a limited amount of “wet-hopped” beer using fresh hops from Sartori’s farm. Hops are usually dried and frozen to ensure a yearlong supply between harvests, but to make his beer, Driftwood brewer Jason Meyer travels to Chilliwack to buy them fresh, then races back to Vancouver Island to brew his Sartori Harvest IPA. Consumers line up outside stores to buy the beer, which in the

the wine world that is used to denote the place that gives wine its distinct flavour—can also apply to beer, said Beattie. The world’s best hops—in the U.S. and Europe—are all grown near the 49th parallel. Sartori’s farm, which sits a stone’s throw from the U.S. border, may not boast the flat, square fields that characterize most of Chilliwack’s farmland, but it has something that may be better. It inspires.

Karin Massar (Chilliwack Community Services), Marie Lashley (Chartwell), Jillian Poole (Chartwell), Crystal Collins (Chartwell), James Challman (CCS) and Steve Dove (CCS).
Hampton House resident Charlie Young provided music for the event.
ore than $500 in school supplies and over $300 cash was donated at the inaugural “Stuff the Bus” with school supplies drive by the three Chilliwack Chartwell retirement residences—Lynnwood, Hampton House and Birchwood. The Chartwell residences teamed up outside of Walmart on Aug. 6 with the goal of collecting as many school supplies as they could in a four-hour time span. All donations will go to
help Chilliwack Community Services’ Early Years and Family Services programs. Volunteers from the Chartwell residences and Community Services also had a barbecue set up and Hampton House resident Charlie Young entertained the crowd by playing his saxophone. Chartwell has done “Stuff the Bus” fundraisers for Chilliwack Community Services in the past, but this is the first time they have done one collecting school supplies.

We will match the competitor’s advertised price only during the effective date of the competitor’s flyer advertisement. WE RESERVE THE RIGHT TO LIMIT QUANTITIES (note that our major supermarket competitors may not). Due to the fact that product is ordered prior to the time of our Ad Match checks, quantities may be limited. We match identical items (defined as same brand, size, and attributes) and in the case of fresh produce, meat, seafood and bakery, we match a comparable item (as determined solely by us). We will not match competitors’ “multi-buys” (eg. 2 for $4), “spend x get x”, “Free”, “clearance”, discounts obtained through loyalty programs, or offers related to our third party operations (post office, gas bars, dry cleaners etc.). We reserve the right to cancel or change the terms of this program at any time. Customer Relations: 1-866-999-9890.
