Oops, Coulter sworn in too soon BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

he winner of last month’s $50,000 school board byelection sat on the sidelines at Tuesday’s school board meeting after finding out he’d been sworn in prematurely the week before. Dan Coulter, who won the Nov. 30 byelection with 520 votes, sat in the

Needs to wait until judicial-recount period passes public gallery as chair Walt Krahn read out a statement at the beginning of the meeting. The board chair said a review of the Local Government Act had revealed Coulter could not legally be sworn in until after the period for a judicial recount had passed, which is nine days after election results are

officially declared. In Coulter’s case, that declaration came on Dec. 2, meaning he shouldn’t have been sworn in until this Thursday (Dec. 12), according to Krahn. Since that voids the oath Coulter took at the board’s Dec. 3 meeting, he will now have to be sworn in a

second time, an event Krahn said will happen Friday. “I sincerely apologize to Dan for any confusion that this has caused,” Krahn said at the end of his statement. Tuesday’s meeting saw the election of board representatives to two provincial bodies.

Trustee Heather Maahs was elected to represent the board at the B.C. School Trustees Association (BCSTA), with board vice-chair Silvia Dyck as her alternate, and Trustee Doug McKay was elected as representative to the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA), with trustee Barry Neufeld as his alternate.

or the last four decades, Chilliwack resident Cheryle Burns has been building a Christmas village that grows more and more elaborate each year. The four-level structure is a highly detailed winter wonderland, with countless figurines that dot each of the ornate villages. Horses and buggies travel along the thoroughfares, snowmen are scattered about, boats are seen out fishing on a body of water, and Santa can be found resting at the top tier in Santa Claus’ village. There’s also a fishing village, shopping centre, ski resort, residential area, and carnival with bumper cars, kiddie boats, ferris wheel, merry-go-round and petting zoo. Some of the amusement park rides even move. The construction of a roller coaster that winds throughout the impressive monument is currently underway, and just outside of a model of Cheam elementary school—of which Burns’ grandson attends in real life—is a group of kids playing hockey out on an ice rink. Throughout the entire creation is an ample amount of cotton, strewn about to replicate snow, and an abundance of

the making miniature evergreen trees and other holiday fare. “It’s for my family. We don’t exchange gifts—husband and wife, and daughters and that—so I build this for them every year,” Burns says, adding it’s a choice to not give gifts during Christmas. “We’ve got everything. We got our health, we got our grandkids.” Hailing from Thunder Bay, Ont., Burns, 65, comes from a family of 13 brothers and sisters. Her mother gave her her first Christmas village at the age of 16, and while it was diminutive in size in comparison to what is erected today, it launched Burns into the world of model building. Her father used to build them out of wood and all the pieces were purchased at the local “five and dime” store. Nowadays, Burns begins designing

the blueprints for her masterpiece at the end of October. Her husband, Richard, carves the frame out of plywood and Burns undertakes construction of the nearly six-foot structure all on her own. It usually takes about a month in total to complete. “I get up in the morning, my grandson goes to school, and then I work on this and then it’s the last thing I do before I go to bed,” she says. “I have no idea how many hours, maybe three or four hundred hours to get it together.” For the average person, the large-scale model may seem like a laborious venture, but Burns says its one she enjoys. “I’m up till two, three o’ clock in the morning. People go by and they wonder what I’m doing,” she laughs. Although she’s lost count of how many bows, drums, bells and candy canes are

used, she does know that there are 5,000 popsicle sticks in her collection, as she glues them all onto the display by hand. In total, Burns suspects she’s spent between $5,000 to $10,000 obtaining pieces for the village, and has collected between 65 to 75 buildings. “We start with one piece a year and that’s how we’ve been doing it,” Burns says. When asked how many figurines of women, men and children are peppered throughout the village, Burns says she’s lost count. The Christmas village serves as a warm, childhood memory for her three daughters, who played a role in constructing and dismantling it each year. Now, her grandchildren have grown a fondness for the creation, boasting about it to their friends, play-acting with the pint-sized people, and, without fail, asking when its time to start building it each year. As a child, Burns says her family travelled solely by horse and buggy and adds that there are no cars in the Christmas village. That may change soon though, as Burns recently received a gift from one of her biggest fans. “I was thinking of doing it because my grandson gave me a little Bobcat for the snow and all that,” Burns laughs. “So maybe next year, I might.”

Traumatized by attack

Influence gov’t policy

CLUES, from page 1

COULTER, from page 1

Police released a sketch of the suspect Friday— more than one year after the incident—because new information received by police in the interim changed the nature of the file and the direction of the investigation, RCMP spokesperson Const. Cynthia Kershaw told the Times. Police originally reported the attack as an assault, but further investigation has revealed it was sexual in nature. The new information also led to the creation of the composite sketch released last week. “The victim was very traumatized by this assault,” RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen said in a press release. “We certainly would like to bring closure to this investigation by identifying the possible suspect. It is believed that the possible suspect lives locally in Chilliwack.”  ◗ Anyone with information that could help identify the man is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-7924611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).  

During his recent campaign, Coulter had often said he intended to get involved with the BCSTA as a way to influence government policy. Being sidelined during Tuesday’s meeting precluded him from any official position in that organization for at least a year, but Cornelia Naylor/TIMES

Trustee elect Dan Coulter sits in the public gallery at Tuesday’s school board meeting after finding out he was sworn in prematurely last week.

One year since Vetters last seen

hilliwack RCMP are putting out a call for help finding a local woman who went missing one year ago from the Watson and Vedder Road area. Laverne Hazel Vetters, 53, was reported missing on Nov. 12, 2012; she was last seen at 9:30 p.m. on Nov. 7, 2012. She is described as five-feet nine-inches tall, 150 pounds, with long grey hair and blue eyes. “The police are hoping that, as it has been over a year since Vetter’s disappearance, someone may have recalled some information or discovered new information to follow up on,” RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen said in a press release Monday. “We are reaching out to the community and to Vetter’s

friends to assist us in solving this disappearance.” Vetter was taking required medication around the time of her disappearance, and she has since missed health care appointments as well. She had never gone missing before, and the friend who reported her disappearance told police it was highly unusual for her not to return to her home for over a week and that she had left her dog. Vetter had friends who checked in on her frequently, however, and they are now looking after her dog. Vetter does not have a vehicle but has been known to ride her bicycle around the south side of Chilliwack. The RCMP’s Serious Crimes Unit has conducted the investigation from the beginning, with up to eight members following possible leads, but so far all clues have come up negative. ◗ Anyone with information about this matter is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP Serious Crimes Unit at 604792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).

Fifty-three-year-old Laverne Vetters has been missing for more than a year and police are hoping someone might have information that would help solve the case.

RCMP seek more clues into 53-yearold’s sudden disappearance

Coulter said he doesn’t feel like he missed out. “I don’t know if that would have happened this time, to become a BCSTA rep,” he told the Times. “I’m still new; I don’t know if I would have gotten voted for, and I can go to a lot of that stuff anyway.” Barring any further procedural gaffes, come Friday, the rookie trustee will finally occupy a post that has been practically vacant since January, when former board chair Louise Piper stopped attending meetings for medical reasons. Her official resignation in August triggered last month’s byelection.

hilliwack mayor Sharon Gaetz, in her role as Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) board chair, says if you think we have clean air in the region, you’re wrong. In an FVRD press release issued Dec. 5, Gaetz called into question clean air accolades heaped upon Abbotsford by an Ontario-based company that makes air purifiers. The AirGenius Awards, a creation of Honeywell Air Purifiers, found Langley and Abbotsford to be in the top 10 Canadian cities with the cleanest air. “Cities known for heavy traffic or manufacturing ultimately will have worse air quality than others, but environmental factors like proximity to mountains or an ocean breeze can trap and also sweep away air pollution,” said Ted Myatt, a senior scientist at environmental consulting company Environmental Health & Engineering, in a press release. In response to this release, the FVRD says ground-level ozone has steadily been increasing in B.C. over the last 20 years with Hope as the provincial hot spot. High levels are also found in Abbotsford and Chilliwack. “A recent press release . . . about air quality improvement in the Fraser Valley is gravely misleading,” Gaetz said. “Over the last two

Down the rabbit holes

O

ne of social media’s great characteristics is the immediate ability of people from anywhere in the world to communicate with one another. There have always existed sub-communities of people with micro-interests across geographically diverse areas who rarely, if ever, got together. I’m picturing a 16th century birchbark weaver in Britain’s Derbyshire woods wishing he could swap trade secrets with a Sto:lo cedar craftsman making traditional baskets on the banks of (what we now call) the Fraser River. With the Internet, these people now have the capability to gather online, often in Facebook groups, to trade notes on their esoteric passions, hobbies, professions, diseases and obsessions. The irony of the Internet, however, is that it is less often used to open up borders and broaden horizons and more often to put up walls and reinforce tunnel vision. Facebook groups tend to be set up to talk about general or specific topics in very specific places. Take “HAM Radio Dubai Middle East” for example, or “Hand Made Accessories East Gwillimbury.” There is the “Support North Tonawanda Fire Fighters” group who, unfortunately for anyone who grew up near Buffalo, N.Y. will note, only has nine members. The world wide web is overloaded with digitally connected mini-villages.

PAUL J. HENDERSON

Simply A Musing As a community newspaper we are exclusively interested in all things local. As far as Chilliwack is concerned, there are three popular Facebook groups that have been created to talk about all things good, some things bad and everything else. One is the creation of Mayor Sharon Gaetz and is called “Life in the Wack.” This group has a stunning 3,218 members, and was created to “talk about the good stuff that’s happening in the Wack.” This is a dictate too hard for many social media users to stick to, hence the creation of a second group, “Real Life in Chilliwack…Good and Bad” with 403 members. This group allows diversion from the sunshine and rainbows of “Life in the Wack.” The third group, which has been wildly successful with 2,485 members, is “Beware! You Need to Know!” This group was set up to, in the words reiterated this week by an administrator, to talk about “RCMP releases, any residential or vehicle break-ins/ robberies, any lost and found items, any recalled items, any news story via the news or the local papers etc.” This latter group, with such a large audience is very active. It acts some-

what like a Roman audience watching Christians being fed to lions. Some cheer for the Christian. Some cheer for the lion. Some are offended by the spectacle, even though they are all there to watch. I tossed a piece of meat out to the lions Monday (OK, mixing metaphors), which has received 124 comments. I posted a photo of a young person who was allowed to run and play on frozen Salish Pond near open water. The context of my post was to check the gauge between helicopter and neglectful parenting. I asked, not rhetorically, if people thought this was dangerous behaviour or good, clean fun. Based on a rough count of those 124 responses, 54 said it was dangerous, 16 said it was good, clean fun, four posts were my responses, 11 complained that I shouldn’t have posted a photo of a minor without his parent’s consent on Facebook and 39 were critical of other commenters or simply off topic. This doesn’t count a number of abusive comments that were deleted by administrators. I do sense there is a societal benefit to these narrow, local conversations online, even if they do often denigrate into personal attack threads and descend down rabbit holes of irrelevancy. It isn’t always easy, but I truly believe that if you can wade through the inevitable online shadows of ignorance, bullying and bad grammar, there is illumination to be found in social media conversations.

ewer CounterAttack roadblocks this holiday season doesn’t mean you can take the party on the road. According to ICBC, around 30 per cent of car crash fatalities are related to impaired driving. That’s why ICBC funds enhanced enforcement to help prevent impaired driving through CounterAttack campaigns in July and December. This year that funding shifted, with more cash for summertime roadblocks and programs such as seatbelt campaigns. The shift seems inevitable when you look at Stats Canada numbers from 2011 that show 1,355 impaired driving accidents in the nation over one July weekend, (15 to 17) plus Canada Day (1,449) and the last weekend of July (1,411). Over the Christmas weekend that year, Dec. 23 to 25, there were 792 incidents. While the necessary funding shift from winter to summer appears to leave officers high and dry, hopefully the message is getting through. The psychological effects of generations of drivers expecting to see roadblocks has culminated in a distinct fear and expectation during the Christmas season that those familiar flashing lights could be around the next corner. Common fodder, and complaint, over pints in the pub is that B.C. has the most stringent drinking and driving laws in the country. In cash alone it can cost from $600 to more than $4,000 in fines and fees if you get caught. That’s aside from the legal and moral implications. As a society, we don’t think it’s okay for folks to overindulge and drive home. Police across the region routinely respond to calls from the public about possible impaired drivers. Aside from seasonal CounterAttack roadblocks, police are always looking for the telltale signs of an impaired driver. Training these days even extends beyond alcohol, so officers recognize drivers ingesting other substances before getting behind the wheel. Police are adamant funding changes won’t stop them from cracking down on drinking and driving—after all, B.C. has the toughest laws in Canada.

Public deserves to see the results of Cohen inquiry Editor: Re: Lab tour eye-opener for pols, Chilliwack Times, Nov. 19. On Nov. 15, MP Mark Strahl and Randy Kamp, Parliamentary Secretary to Fisheries Minister Gail Shea, toured the Cultus Lake Salmon Research Lab. They spoke of the federal government’s good works for Pacific salmon. Three days later, the Cohen Commission website disappeared from the Internet. Gone are the testimony, evidence and reports of the two-year, $26-million federal inquiry into the decline of Fraser River sockeye. The reader might well ask which of those events is more indicative of the government’s response to the ongoing salmon crisis. I wrote to MP Strahl and Minister Gail Shea asking why the Cohen website is gone, whether it could be restored and whether there is some other source for the testimony and reports of the Cohen Commission. Two weeks later I received one reply, a brushoff from Mark Strahl’s office reading, “The website was not a department website. It was likely run by the Commission itself. We did not have any role with the website.” Apparently nor does our MP want any role in addressing concerns of constituents over the website and the wild salmon Justice Cohen’s work was meant to benefit. The Cohen recommendations have not been carried out. The salmon are still in trouble. Yet omnibus bills have degraded habitat protection, Fisheries and Oceans staff have been cut, disease and virus data from open-net salmon farms is still not publicly reported. Of 23 recommendations with specific deadlines, the Cohen Report Card published by Watershed Watch Salmon Society lists one complete, 14 missed deadlines and eight pending. A publicly funded inquiry’s results should be publicly available, at least until the recommendations of that inquiry have been acted on.

We have the upper hand Editor: Re: Pipeline profits not all they’re cracked up to be. It’s really wonderful to think that a company like Kinder Morgan wants to help the communities of British Columbia by building the new pipeline. Great! Geez, the City of Chilliwack will even receive $1 million a year in taxes. Let’s celebrate! It’s a win-win situation is it not? Let’s put a new perspective on the situation. Why not make two major demands before this project is accepted? 1. That the 60-year-old existing pipeline be completely replaced. Earthquakes anyone? 2. That Kinder Morgan builds refineries in Alberta to convert the tar sands to oil first so that we don’t have deadly bitumen poisons flowing across our clean waters and farmlands, and shipped across the ocean. Sure it will cost them big dollars but keep one fact in mind: Richard Kinder is currently the 112th richest man on the planet who stands to personally profit by building his pipeline. It’s our land Mr. Kinder and his buddies are profiting from, and they can certainly meet our demands if our governments make a deal, rather than act like naive children handed some candy for being good. Those payments they’ll pay are taxes levied by the federal government and have to be paid anyway, not anything “extra” that would normally not be paid. Let’s stand up and protect our land and water with real solid investments that will benefit everyone and not accept their bribe. They have no better choice, and we do have the

upper hand in this deal, why not play it? If we don’t, in the future we’re probably going to look very foolish. Robbin Yager Chilliwack

off to fanciful ventures that pretend to battle manmade global warming. This, even after the UN’s Climate Panel has ruled that there has been no warming for at least the past 15 years. How about carbon offsets providing service for the public rather than developing mythical ecological processes such as carbon sequestering? The way I see it, the people of B.C. do not complain enough when our elected public servants do not represent the best interests of their constituents As a plan of action I suggest that all taxpayers develop an attitude of “zero per cent tax increases” for any and all levels of government. Don’t let them argue “tough economic times”

Editor: Your editorial, “Can’t make everyone happy,” Chilliwack Times Dec. 3, offers the opinion that users of BC Ferries and, in fact users of all B.C. government services, are ignorant complainers. I believe that most B.C. tax payers are tired of BC Ferries, ICBC, BC Hydro, TReO and a host of others gobbling up B.C. wage earners’ money and providing this bounty for their friends and business associates. After the loot is gone they always return for more. Recent research into the Washington State Ferries system revealed they have a larger system providing cheaper service for customers. They require ships to be built locally. Washington’s Ferry CEO salaries and benefits are much lower than those in our province. In B.C., what came out of this research was not administration salary roll backs, but fare hikes and service cuts. Other provincial schemes send vast amounts of tax money off with little or no accounting or media attention. The Golden Ears Bridge “use fee” charges B.C. between $35 million and $50 million every year. Could we renegotiate that deal and swing some of that cash over to the ferry routes? Our ever-increasing carbon tax, that has been decried by our own MLA, Laurie Throness, continues to send tax money

Faith Today

Never believe the thrill is gone BY SHAWN VANDOP Promontory Ministries

O

ne of the things I’ve learned about the Christmas story is that it’s full of people who exhibited

hope. They lived their lives waiting for God to show up. Before the first Christmas unfolded there was a group of Jewish people who waited for 2,100 years for their Savior to come. However, most of them never saw it happen. Over time many of them would give up and throw their hope aside. Hope simply reminded them

of what they didn’t have rather than what could be. Hope had lost its thrill. I’ve been there. You probably have as well. Those moments where you hope and wait and wonder only to see your anticipation quickly turn to frustration. You lose the hope that God will show up and deliver you, help you, save you—and like so many you decide to check out. That reminds me of the story of a little boy who was in the grocery store with his mother. As she shopped he continually asked her if she could buy some chocolate chip cookies. The answer came quickly, “No, son, they’re too expensive and

I’m in a hurry.” That did not hinder the boy’s hope of getting some cookies—so he kept asking and mom kept refusing to the point of threatening a punishment if he asked again. Once they got in the checkout surrounded by a line of people the boy stood up in the cart, folded his hands, looked up to heaven and prayed loudly, “Jesus, my mom won’t get me chocolate chip cookies. But you told me to pray and put my hope in you. Since my mom won’t get them would you please make it happen?” As the boy continued to pray people in the checkout line began to look at the mother with disappoint-

ment. Not willing to make a scene, she went and got the cookies and placed them in the cart at which time you could hear the boy say, “Thank you, Jesus.” Here’s the point. God often does his best work when we’re in the checkout line. You may be ready to check out on God or check out on your marriage or check out on your commitments. You may be at that place where your waiting has drained the thrill from your hope. If that’s you then the message of Christmas is exactly what you need. That’s why the Christmas Hymn O Holy Night says that “Long lay the world in sin and error pin-

ing”—which means that the world was longing, praying and waiting. They were looking for a Savior and God came through when they least expected it by sending us His Son. That’s how God works. He tends to leave us standing in line, waiting till the last moment to come through. It’s how he builds our faith. So, don’t give up. Keep seeking. Keep asking. Keep praying. God is never late, and when you least expect it, he’ll show up and put the thrill back into your hope. ◗ Shawn is a Pastor at Promontory Ministries. Feel free to contact him at shawn@mypcc.ca.

Pipeline proximity a negative Kent seizes ’roids Property values would be affected

BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

M

ost Chilliwack residents were likely unaware that Kinder Morgan’s 60-year-old Trans Mountain oil pipeline runs underneath Sardis until the company’s proposed expansion came to light nearly two years ago. But with the subject suddenly at the forefront of public discourse, most people say they don’t want to live near an oil pipeline, according to a survey commissioned by Burnaby NDP Member of Parliament Kennedy Stewart. Responses from an online Angus Reid survey found 45 per cent of those living in Metro Vancouver said they would not consider buying a home or property near

a pipeline with a further 23 per cent saying it would strongly negatively impact their decision to buy. “The top complaint from people in my riding about a new Kinder Morgan pipeline is the negative impact this proposed project is already having on their ability to sell their homes,” Stewart said in a press release issued last week. “Some homeowners living along the proposed pipeline route tell me they cannot sell their homes now or are not getting reasonable offers. I commissioned this poll to determine the extent to which the problem is widespread.” In Sardis, the Trans Mountain pipe-

line runs under the Watson elementary school yard, then travels under the backyards of homes on Montcalm Road. After crossing farmland to the west of Tyson, it travels under Watson Road and under residential properties on Canterbury Drive. All along, company representatives have said the preferred route for the second pipeline is through the existing rightof-way wherever possible. Along Montcalm and Canterbury, however, the company is searching for “feasible alternatives to constructing through residential areas in order to avoid impact to residential neighbours.”

Dec. 13 is the official opening for downhill skiing and snowboarding at Manning Park.

Manning set to open slopes BY JO HUGHES Special to the Times

W

hen the 2010 Olympics was running short of snow, where did they find it? Manning Park, of course. With its higher elevation and being located on the edge of the B.C. Interior, Manning Park often gets snow well before the Coastal Mountains and it has been no different this year. Dec. 7 marked the opening day for the Manning Park Resort Nordic Centre and many Vancouverites braved the chilly weather to get a chance to play in the snow. Winter seekers went snowshoeing, cross-country skiing and enjoyed the night lit outdoor skating rink. Currently the majority of the Nordic trails operated by Manning Park Resort are groomed for classic skiing, but there are sections of the upper trails groomed for skate skiers as well, including

the Campground Loop, the Mini Loop and Strawberry Flats. Tired of being cold, but not having any snow to enjoy? The Manning Park Resort Nordic Centre is open seven days a week from now until April 6. Hours of operation are from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Sunday to Thursday and 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday. Currently they are offering discounted rates on trail tickets due to the early season conditions, and plenty of options for winter fun, including equipment rentals, retail items and lessons from certified CANSI instructors. Dec. 13 is the official opening date for the Manning Park Resort Alpine Area giving you even more options for winter enjoyment. Lifts will be running from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Dec. 13 to 15. ◗ For more information or to book accommodation at Manning Park Resort, call 604-668-5922, email: info@manningpark.com or visit our website at www.manningpark.com.

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

The

Hefty hoopsters add beef to run-and-gun Grizzlies

BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

G

.W. Graham’s first varsity football season may have held up the senior boys basketball preseason a bit this year, but it’s brought one other important change to the team as well—size. Grizzlies basketball has, since its inception, been defined by a run-and-gun style that earned a relatively small, highly skilled Graham squad three consecutive provincial appearances a couple years ago. But the addition of a few big boys, like six-footfour, 230-pound Phil Weston and six-foot-four, 250-pound Diego Pineda, compliments of the fledgling football program, will likely change that a little this season. “This is the first time that we’ve looked to get the ball more into the post, and bang,” Grizzlies coach Jake Mouritzen told the Times. “They’ll be the first ones to admit it’s not necessarily pretty in there, but they’re athletic.” This year’s Grizzlies squad, still rebuilding after graduating 11 key players in one fell swoop in 2012, is really made up of two distinct generations, Mouritzen said. There are the seniors, like power forward Jake Creasey and guard Ryan Kaplanis, who are twosport athletes, and then there is a stellar crop of juniors, like Grades 9s Gabe Mannes and Ryan Trottier, many of whom are basketball specific. “Those guys are already having a big impact,” said Mouritzen of the youngsters, who already have a couple of starts behind them this season. How the combination of seniors and juniors and size and skill will come together on the court is still taking shape. “We didn’t start the preseason until football was finished, so we’re definitely using all of December and probably most of January to get where we want to be,” Mouritzen said. But the team has its sights on another provincial appearance after missing out last year, and Mouritzen is confident his Grizzlies can carve out the top-three finish they’ll need in the Fraser Valley’s re-calibrated AA tier to get there. “And once you get to the show, anything can happen,” he said. “We know that from experience.” A good early-season test comes the team’s way this weekend at the Grizzlies own Graham Grizzlies Showcase Invitational tournament.

Ski-a-thon raising funds

Registration is open for the second annual Slopes for Hope event at Hemlock Resort, which raises funds for the Canadian Cancer Society. The event is billed as an “Everest-style” ski-athon in which participants try to ski or board the vertical distance of Mount Everest in a day. Participants can sign up as individuals or teams. Proceeds raised will go towards cancer research, prevention initiatives and support programs. Prizes will be awarded to the top fundraising team, top

Over the last four years, the combined 12-team boys tournament and eight-team girls tournament has grown into one of the province’s most important competitions on the AA basketball calendar (expanded to include AAA this year because of the newly reworked triple-A and quad-A tiers). Of the 12 boys teams tipping off at the tournament, 10 will travel from outside of the Fraser Valley to be there. “Teams want to come and play,” Mouritzen said. “It’s definitely been built up as one of the early, preseason opportunities for double-A and triple-A teams to see where they currently sit in the province. Provincial rankings use it to adjust the early rankings.” For the second straight year, the tournament’s championship final Saturday will be broadcast on www.sportscanada.tv as the Baden Game of the Week. “There’s only 10 games throughout the season that SportsCanada televises, so that’s a huge honour for the tournament,” Mouritzen said. “That’s again just recognizing that a lot of the top double-A and triple-A teams are coming out.” The level of competition has risen even more precipitously on the girls side in recent years. Seven of the eight teams in the girls draw are ranked top 10 in the province; the eighth is an honourable mention. The eighth-ranked Grizzlies, led by returning players Jenika Bannerman, Katie Sutherland and Erin Steele, are young with half the team consisting of players in Grade 10. But the they are also full of great expectations and potential, according to Mouritzen. “They’re young, so they’re going to have nights where they make mistakes and might not get the win,” he said, “but they’re also going to have nights where they upset teams because they sure have a bright future with the girls they have in Grade 10 and the girls they have right now leading them in Grade 11 and 12.” Like their male counterparts, the Grizzlies’ goal this season is a provincial berth. “This weekend will be a good test,” Mouritzen said. Graham’s girls team tips off Friday against Britannia at 11:30 a.m. The boys side of the tournament starts Friday, with the Grizzlies taking on either Delview or Westsyde at 6:30 p.m. ◗ Visit the G.W.

POHLVERINE, from page 12 She said the open nature of the sport—the fact that women of all fitness levels, abilities and experience are invited to join—is a double-edged sword that can lead to injuries at the more recreational levels. But just as hockey players are taught how to take a hit into the boards and football linebackers are taught how to wrap up and tackle, roller derby players at this level know how to take a hit, and they know how to hit the ground. “When everyone is quite skilled there are fewer injuries,” she said. On the international stage, the U.S. is head and shoulders above everyone else with Canada at number two. But the sport is growing and the world cup should feature teams from Brazil,

Fraternal feel Japan, England and other European countries. Pohl said Saturday’s tryout had the unique roller derby quality of being competitive yet fraternal. The women fight hard in the jams and against one another for spots on Team Canada, but there was a sportswomanlike quality to the event. “We are all there trying to make advances for the sport,” she said. “It is so new and it is growing. I played soccer and a tryout at that calibre certainly would not feel like that.” Pohl will find out in two weeks if she made the national team.

Huskers bulk up board, prepare for next season Team appoints first general manager of football operations BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

I

t’s a new era for the Valley Huskers junior football organization. At it’s annual general meeting last week, the organization elected a new board, including seven out of 13 new members and a brand new executive. The team has also appointed its first general manager of football operations, Moe Agagnier, a person and position the team sorely needed, according to new president Jack Covey. “He’s got a great background in football,” Covey said, “and we needed somebody to co-ordinate that whole area between the board and the team. It’s a great position to have, and not just the position, but to have somebody of his capability to work in that area.”

PRESIDENT’S CHOICE®

“My intention is to help develop the coaching staff and players to hopefully become a competitive football team within the BCFC as well as the CJFL,” Agagnier said upon accepting the GM position. Covey, a past president of the B.C. Football Conference, said he’s been working to get the right people in the right positions within the Huskers organization for about five to six years. “We’ve been able to do that,” he said of the board elected last week. Chilliwack Times publisher Nick Bastaja, a former CFL Grey Cup and Schenley Award winner, is the club’s new vice-president. Hank Pilotte and Fran Heagy will serve as treasurer and secretary respectively. “It’s one of the strongest boards we’ve had for a long time,” Covey said. “Getting somebody like Nick in there, who’s a Schenley Award winner and has played in the CFL, gives us a lot of credibility, so we’re looking forward to a great year.” The other directors elected last week were Brenda Currie, Dick Harrington, Don Miller, Fran Heagy, Geoff Sache, Irene Spalding, Moe Agagnier, Steve Hames and Trudy McAuley.

my community is a healthy community...

We are totally committed to a healthy lifestyle and a healthy community. Gail loves to learn about nutrition and we both enjoy cooking healthy meals. Staying physically fit allows us to pursue all the activities we enjoy doing together, manage stress, and helps us balance our very busy professional and personal lives. It isn’t always easy to make time to eat well and fit in our exercise, but we truly believe that it is an investment in our future health. Gail’s work as office manager for Village Park Medical provides the opportunity to observe how easy it is to lose the gift of health and she enjoys working with a group of physicians that share her passion for good health promotion. We support the Chilliwack Hospital & Health Care Foundation in their efforts to support our local hospital, and create an environment where the healthy choice is the easy choice for everyone.

Complete with medieval costumes, Winter Harp brings carols and Celtic tunes to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre Dec. 17.

World-class ensemble B eautiful backdrops of cathedrals and snow, heartwarming carols, songs and endearing stories in celebration of Christmas will set the stage for an evening of pure magic as Winter Harp returns once again to enchant audience members at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on Dec. 17 at 7:30 p.m. More than a concert, this worldclass ensemble is a sensory experience renowned for awe-inspiring performances, sold-out houses, standing ovations and rave reviews. Let your heart sing-a-long with the captivating melodies of the harps and the mystical music from age-old instruments as these extraordinary musicians, clad in medieval attire, perform a musical repertoire ranging from carols to Celtic, medieval and worldly tunes. One of Canada’s most beloved holiday concert traditions, the magic that is Winter Harp celebrates its 20th Anniversary this year and returns to Chilliwack with

Winter Harp, hailed as an evening of pure magic, performs at Cultural Centre Dec. 17

a show that is as visually stunning as the music is enchanting. Adorned with candles that illuminate backdrops of cathedrals and snow and carved instruments, the entire show takes on the look of a luminous pre-Raphaelite painting. With golden Celtic and classical harps, drums, tambourines, temple bells, flutes and an assortment of ancient rare instruments, Winter Harp’s performance is a journey overflowing with heartwarming carols, songs and stories that will stay with you all through the festive season. This world-class ensemble, founded in 1993 by Lori Pappajohn and poet/narrator Alan Woodland in a small chapel in Vancouver, has since grown to include up to a dozen cities in its annual December tours

throughout western Canada. For the 2013 anniversary tour, Winter Harp has announced that legendary harpist Kim Robertson will join the ensemble once again. A virtuoso musician, Robertson is among the world’s leading Celtic harpists, credited with bringing about the renaissance of the Celtic harp in North America. Her ground-breaking arrangements and passionate performances helped launch the Celtic harp into the modern world. ◗ Tickets are $35 for adults, $32 for seniors and $30 for students. To purchase, call the centre box office at 604-391-SHOW (7469), visit in person or purchase online at www. chilliwackculturalcentre.ca.

W

inter Harp features a number of unique instruments made especially for the ensemble:

◗ Bass psaltery: The five-foot-tall bass psaltery is the only one of its kind in the world. Built by Vancouver luthier Edward Turner, it has a haunting, ethereal sound. ◗ Organistrum: The ornately carved organistrum, an instrument that dates back to 12th Century Spain, produces deep, resonant drones. The only other one like it in Canada is in Ottawa’s Museum of Civilization, also crafted by luthier Edward Turner. ◗ Nyckelharpa: This instrument is a medieval cross between a hurdy-gurdy and a violin, and has a wistful, viol sound. ◗ Symphonie: This is a forerunner of the hurdygurdy. ◗ Medieval guitar: Reminiscent of instruments played in the 1600s, this instrument was made by Vancouver luthier Michael Dunn.

IPL Q & A Q: I have noticed that my skin is looking dull and I even have some sun spots that have appeared. What can I do? A: Over the years sun damage causes us to have broken capillaries and sun spots which can make us look 10 years older. We have various ways to improve skin texture and tone. We can start by using a combination of physician grade treatment products which include Vitamin A, hydroquinone and sunblock as well as IPL (Intense Pulsed Light). Usually 3 – 5 treatments are necessary. If you are interested in a more aggressive treatment we can combine physician grade products, IPL and Fraxel laser – the combination will enhance each others results. You will need to continue protecting yourself from the sun and use sunblocks, hats and sunglasses to maintain the results.

Lawn replacing Hudson as arts council director BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

A

fter 18 years at the helm, Rod Hudson is retiring as executive director of the Chilliwack Community Arts Council (CCAC), and he will be replaced by long-time school teacher, principal and Chilliwack Players Guild member Patti Lawn. The arts council says it conducted an “exhaustive” search and was pleased to announce Lawn’s appointment starting Jan. 1. Hudson said Lawn has a long association with the arts council dating back to the 1980s when she was on the board of directors and helped co-ordinate a chilPatti Lawn dren’s festival. “We are pleased with the board’s decision and look forward to developing new programs and activities for the community to enjoy,” said arts council president Maureen Covey in a press release.

www.chilliwacktimes.com

Hudson says he is pleased with the board’s decision to hire Lawn, stating that “she will bring a different skill set to the position,” which he believes is needed. Lawn has been an active member of the Chilliwack Players Guild for many years. She is retiring in the new year from her position as principal of F.G. Leary elementary school, the only fine arts-focused elementary school in the Chilliwack district. Lawn will serve as acting president of the Chilliwack Cultural Centre Society board of directors until a replacement is chosen. The arts council moved out of the Chilliwack Cultural Centre a year ago after a dispute with city hall over how much money the CCAC would bring to the table. Hudson said they made an offer, which was rejected by the city. He added that the creation of the Chilliwack Cultural Arts & Cultural Centre Society led to a duplication of services and the CCAC didn’t want to be “the fly in the ointment.” Both Hudson and Mayor Sharon Gaetz said, at that time, that there was no animosity between the two organizations.
