Another church in city’s core? Popular coffee shop Decades evicted to make room for church youth shelter BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
Old School The new CSS may be beautiful and it may be state-of-the-art but it would never have felt like home for retiring English teacher Muriel Morris
ast summer, when workers began demolishing the old 1950 Chilliwack secondary school (CSS), Muriel Morris happened to be on her way to the new school next door to set up a few things in her new classroom. She stopped by the construction fence a while to watch as an excavator clawed down the old
walls and tore through familiar classrooms. When it got to room 205, she had to walk away. A few doors down would be 210—her room for the last 40 years. Morris will retire this year after spending all but one of her 42 years of teaching in that old CSS building. Her new home, for her final year, has been the school’s new, bright and breezy $56-million campus, which officially opened amidst

The merits of the new state-of-the-art building—with its teaching kitchens and robotics labs, with its wide-open spaces and expanses of glass—were the subject of much speechifying by politicians and school officials last week. But the place will never quite sit right with Morris.

ust when some thought there were more than enough churches taking up commercial storefronts in downtown Chilliwack, the popular Decades Coffee Shop on Wellington Avenue has been evicted to make way for yet another. “I am not leaving of my own free will,” Decades owner Ron Laser told the Times Tuesday of the eviction notice he received Feb. 15. “In my personal opinion it’s a huge loss for the community and downtown. Downtown constantly works hard to attract and keep business there, and then for this to happen just seems wrong.” Laser, who own’s the popular coffee, lunch and meeting spot, said he was set to sign a new lease with his landlords, Natalie and Neal Te Brinke, when they told him he had to get out by June 3. The plan is for City Life Church (formerly Glad Tidings) to open a Chilliwack version of Abbotsford’s Cyrus Centre, a church-based youth shelter. The Times has been told the Te Brinkes are connected with Promontory Ministries and Main Street Church, See DECADES, Page 4

Local financial institution alerts RCMP to lottery phone scam
hilliwack RCMP is warning seniors to beware of a lottery phone scam that took in three victims recently. The victims lived in Alberta, but the suspected fraudster was a 20-year-old Hope man arrested for fraud Tuesday. He is suspected of phoning seniors and telling them they’d won a lottery but needed to transfer a percentage of the winnings to a bank account to cover taxes. The fraud was uncovered when a Chilliwack financial institution alerted police. The suspected scammer was released on a promise to appear in court at a later date. ◗ Anyone else targeted by the fraud or any one with further information is asked to contact Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).

Tax rate goes up . . . but still lowest BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
hilliwack homeowners will see a 2.44 per cent property tax increase for 2014, an increase required to battle inflation as well as the addition of hiring two more Mounties and annual increases to the RCMP contract. The tax rate increase approved unanimously by city council Tuesday afternoon is the lowest rate hike in more than a decade. Years 2011 to 2013 saw increases just below 3.5 per cent, and from 2006 to 2010 it was just under four per cent.
Policing costs continue to rise and account for one third of Chilliwack’s entire budget Council also approved a 2.44 per cent increase to water and sewer user rates Tuesday. As is the annual tradition, city staff explained that Chilliwack has the lowest taxation and business multiplier levels in the entire Lower Mainland. “Chilliwack is the lowest by a considerable margin,” director of finance Glen Savard said. The increase in taxes amounts
to approximately $38 on a representative home. Savard said that representative home pays almost $500 less in taxes, not counting utilities, than the average homeowner in the rest of the Lower Mainland. Nearly one third of the city’s entire budget goes to pay for policing. The 2014 policing budget has increased by $824,800 over 2013, according to staff. This

Coalition will fight rezoning bylaw in court
Four new signs will cost taxpayers a total of $190k
BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
ith zero fanfare or discussion, Chilliwack city council decided Tuesday to spend $190,000 to build four welcome signs on the Trans-Canada Highway. The project will see 30-foot signs with LED lighting surrounded by landscaping at the eastern and western edges of the city on the highway. There will also be two rectangular, 10-foot signs on either side of the Vedder Road interchange. After the results of the first request-for-proposals (RFP) were rejected, the RFP was re-issued “with an increase in the scope and budget for the project,” according to the staff report presented to council. “The Trans-Canada Highway bisects the City of Chilliwack and is a major connector between the Lower Mainland/Fraser Valley and the Interior of B.C.” the staff report said. “The Chilliwack Entry Sign Project will provide signage along this connector that
includes increases in the annual contract and the addition of two more officers. The 2014 financial plan bylaw given introduction and three readings by council Thursday also provides for the addition of one firefighter, full-year phased in transit service increases that began in 2013, increases in road rehabilitation and storm drainage programs, full-year operating costs for the Sardis Library, and funding of all capital projects without debt. A public hearing is scheduled for March 18 at 7 p.m. so that Chilliwack residents can offer input into the financial plan.
“The Chilliwack Entry Sign Project will provide signage along this connector that will greet visitors, investors and residents and help to form their impressions of our community.” Staff report will greet visitors, investors and residents and help to form their impressions of our community.” On Dec. 4, the city issued RFP packages to three selected proponents, Knight Signs, Sign Corp and Astrographic Industries. Proposals were received on Jan. 15 and an evaluation com-
mittee ranked Knight Signs’ $189,892 bid with the highest points. The signs will replace old ones installed by former Mayor John Les on the highway that read: “Chilliwack — Where Business Grows. Phone the mayor 604793-2900.”
he coalition of First Nations, environmental, community and recreational fishing organizations opposed to a hazardous waste recycling facility near the Fraser River in Chilliwack has filed papers with the B.C. Supreme Court to set aside a city rezoning bylaw. The coalition acted on an opinion by West Coast Environmental Law (WCEL) that suggested there were flaws in the City of Chilliwack’s public consultation process. If the court agrees with the petition, city hall could simply restart the rezoning process and host another public hearing. Turning to the courts is a last-ditch attempt by the coalition, made up of more than 20 organizations including Watershed Watch Salmon Society, Friends of the Chilliwack River Valley, the B.C. Federation of Drift Fishers and the Sto:lo Tribal Council. The groups are opposed to the plans of Ontario-based Aevitas Inc. to build the facility on Cannor Road where it will recycle, among other things, transformer oil containing PCBs and lamps containing mercury. The coalition has arranged a meeting with Aevitas president Byron Day at the Sto:lo Resource Centre in Chilliwack on March 18. The groups opposed to the plant have emphasized it is not the facility itself, but the location—between 100 and 200 metres away from the Fraser River in the Cattermole Lands—that is the concern. Some opposed to the facility have heaped on criticism of Aevitas lately after it was revealed there had

Big name critics at pipeline meeting BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
pponents of Kinder Morgan’s proposed pipeline expansion host a townhall meeting in Chilliwack Friday featuring some prominent critics of the industry. Andrew Nikiforuk is a Canadian journalist who has been writing about the Alberta oil sands for close to two decades. His latest book published in September 2012 is The Energy of Slaves: Oil and the New Servitude. The Chilliwack chapter of the anti-pipeline group PIPE UP Network invited Nikiforuk as well as Lubicon Cree First Nation member Melina Laboucan-Massimo and CRED B.C. spokesperson Liz McDowell to the public event at the Best Western Rainbow Country Inn March 7. Laboucan-Massimo is a long-time indigenous and environmental activ-
AEVITAS, from page 3
“In 20 years, we’ve never had an incident,” Day told city council at the public hearing in December. “So imagine our surprise when we now learned about the explosions and the fire at the Aevitas facility in Edmonton,” said Glen Thompson, president of Friends of the Chilliwack River Valley, in a press release. Globe and Mail reporter Mark
ist, and CRED B.C. (Conversations for Responsible Economic Development) is a group of more than 90 businesses and professionals who say they support “responsible economic development.” Also scheduled to speak is local activist, and University of the Fraser Valley elder in residence, Eddie Gardner. The meeting comes as the National Energy Board prepares for hearings into Kinder Morgan’s $5.4-billion proposal to nearly triple the capacity of its 1,150-kilometre Trans Mountain oil pipeline from 300,000 barrels per day (bpd) to 890,000 bpd. Through Chilliwack, the pipeline runs under agricultural land, Kinkora Golf Course, residential areas in Sardis and two school yards. The deadline was Feb. 12 to apply to participate in the hearings. After thousands expressed opinions on Northern Gateway, the federal gov-
ernment cracked down, limiting participation in the Kinder Morgan hearings to those who are either “directly affected” or have “relevant expertise.” Individuals or organizations could apply as a commenter or an intervenor. The City of Chilliwack has applied to comment, while the Fraser Valley Regional District has applied for intervenor status. A number of other local organizations have applied, including: PIPE UP, the Yarrow Ecovillage, the Popkum Indian Band, School District 33 and 16 local Sto:lo bands referring to itself as the Sto:lo Collective. The meeting hosted by PIPE UP at the Best Western Rainbow Country Inn is March 7 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Organizers say it is free and open to the public. The event will be hosted by affected property owner and WaterWealth Project community organizer Natalie Jones.
Edmonton plant exploded Hume wrote a column on March 3 pointing to the 2005 fire in Edmonton, referring to the Edmonton Journal description: “A witches’ brew explodes: Series of blasts at toxic-waste handling facility sends black clouds over city.” The problem, which the Globe later corrected online, is that the fire was at Custom Environmen-
tal Services, which Aevitas did not acquire until 2011. And the fire at the Cornwall Aevitas plant, sparked when a light bulb exploded, occurred on Feb. 24, two month after Day’s statement to council. The proposed facility will still have to be approved by the Ministry of Environment. 6389789

e often read about the things politicians say about the various topics they want us to hear about. Sometimes what is more interesting, however, is what those in elected office don’t say, not because of anything they are hiding but simply because they either have no opinion, they don’t think the topic is worthy of public discussion, or they are afraid of speaking publicly. I always read the Chilliwack city council agenda in advance of Tuesday meetings, and this week I was wary about just how long the meeting might last. Agenda items included: new welcome signs, Christmas parade funding, Heritage Park upgrades, Party in the Park cash, the fire department’s 2013 annual report, the 2014 DCC bylaw, the 2014 financial plan and a draft presentation on the city’s Official Community Plan to 2040. Good stuff. I figured the meeting would last a while as our six elected city councillors and our mayor would surely have comments about all these topics, wouldn’t they? Not so much. Beyond the standard peremptory claims by city staff about how low our taxes are, and a few saccharine statements about how hard staff worked on the OCP document . . . crickets. What should they have talked about? How about a $190,000 contract to build four welcome-to-Chilliwack signs. Check that decimal place, not $19,000 . . . $190,000 for four
PAUL J. HENDERSON
SIMPLY A MUSING signs. Not one city councillor said a word before voting in favour of the plan. What can you buy for $190,000 in Chilliwack? How about four 2014 Audi Quatros; a quaint three-bedroom house on First Avenue; or you could fund 18 of the 22 residential supportive housing units at the Chilliwack Health Contact Centre for a year. Or, four signs. Neither did anyone on council comment on the $250,000 built up over two years in the Heritage Park building reserve fund, 80 per cent of which will be used for a much-needed project to renovate the mezzanine. Which seems like a cool thing. But remarkable to me was the lack of even a moment’s discussion about a Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation (CEPCO) “request” (I put that in quotes because I’ve always had the sense CEPCO was more of a wagger than a tail) for $65,000 to hire someone through Dutch consulting firm Walas to sit in a downtown storefront to “create new economic opportunities and increase commercial occupancy in the downtown.” What CEPCO (i.e. the city) didn’t ask the city for was a further $120,000 that CEPCO (i.e. the city) will pay for, for 2,180 hours per year for a Walas
staff person to do . . . something. (Yes, that is $55/hour.) And here is just a taste of some of the synapse-stopping wording from this consulting firm that, again, city councillors did not comment on: “The method of Walas revolves around an intensive programming of activities. We are not working from a master-plan, but rather with a plan-master. He Plans the Work, and Works the Plan.” What does that even mean? More: “Walas engages in de development of vita land …” and it also has “en Authenticity.” The company uses the word “Phantasy” in the document. If this English as a second language came from a consultancy the city hired in India or China or Mexico rather than the Netherlands, I’m sure someone would have commented. We couldn’t find a consultant in British Columbia, elsewhere in Canada or the continent of North America? Or did former CEPCO president John Jansen and Coun. Ken Huttema (whose photo appears on the Walas website) just need a vacation? Wading through the PR document, Walas certainly has some ambitious ideas. I’m happy to try to look beyond the terrible language usage to see what it is they are going to do. But I do find it odd that no city councillor had anything to say about this expense. And I’m not so sure about the wisdom of hiring a European consultant to solve a Chilliwack problem. Hopefully I’m en wrongen.
he recent StatsCan report trumpeting a 44.5 per cent increase in the worth of Canadians has left many, mostly lower-income Canadians, scratching their heads. According to StatsCan, the net worth of Canadian families jumped to $243,800 in 2012 from $168,700 in 2005. In British Columbia, the median net worth of families is pegged at $344,000. The statistics certainly paint a rosy picture for the Canadian middle class. What most headlines avoid are the statistics for the people in the top and bottom 20 per cent. In 1999, the median net worth of individuals in the bottom 20 per cent was $1,300, while that of individuals in the top 20 per cent was $763,700. In 2012, the median net worth of the bottom 20 per cent was $1,100, a drop of 15.4 per cent from 1999. By contrast, the median net worth of the top 20 per cent in 2012 was $1,380,000, an increase of 80.7 per cent. The report attributes the increase in median net worth for the higher quintiles to above-average increases in real estate values. This explains why the lower quintile has not seen a dramatic increase in their net worth, they can’t afford to own real estate, much less now than in 1999. The headlines may say Canadians are better off in 2012 than they were several years ago, but the reality is too many Canadians are actually worse off. The disparity will continue to exist until an effective jobs plan is put in place, which includes improving access to affordable day care and eventually affordable housing.

Bring your pen to this gun fight and reign in power
Editor: Despite being a disabled veteran whose hands often shake with pain; my privately owned, civilian firearm has been invaluable to my neighbours and to me. When an elderly friend’s sole companion, her dog, was repeatedly attacked by coyotes, nothing she tried worked. Animal control wouldn’t help because she lived in “too remote of an area.” So my rifle and I helped, and Socks the dog lived happily ever after. My gun saved human lives shortly after moving to Chilliwack. Late one summer night, a gang of would-be murderers came with knives and bats to kill my neighbour and her unborn baby. I phoned 9-1-1 before I loaded my gun and held them off; thankfully without firing a shot. The police did not arrive until 30 minutes after my intense standoff with these butchers ended. Having a gun made the difference between life and death that night. That baby got a chance in this world; not because the police had their guns, but because I had mine. My rifle has been a powerful protector. But as a weapon, its power is dwarfed by that of RCMP Commissioner Bob Paulson’s pen. With a stroke of that pen, my rifle has been branded a hazard to public safety and I have been branded a dangerous criminal. Under his pen’s power, men with automatic rifles and body armour can kick my door down in the middle of the night and take me away or kill me if I resist. Imagine your house empty, with the door frame broken in and the boot prints of heavily armed men marking your halls despite your good standing. The Commissioner’s pen is such a dangerous weapon that it can do this to any Canadian in the name of “public safety.” That this is done under the autocratic authority of a non-elected bureaucrat without parliamentary leadership makes the Commissioner’s pen all the more terrible of a weapon. It slashes arbitrarily and without reason or notice across the rights of thousands of law-abiding Canadians. My rifle is a pitiful weapon indeed. It is no defence against this type of tyranny. So I am calling out to any who would stand up for what is right. The quasi-legislative power given to the RCMP needs to be eliminated. Currently, they have the authority to classify and re-classify firearms that are already categorized by the Criminal Code. This is the power to make “dangerous criminals” out of upstanding citizens. Even those who see civilian ownership of firearms as unsavoury must see the greater evil in this unchecked power. Please contact your Member of Parliament, the Minister of Public Safety, and Prime Minister Stephen Harper. Call on them to reign in our nation’s power hungry police force. If we fail, I fear it will not be long before the whole
Act of bullying was not handled well Editor: I have written letters to the newspaper before usually ranting about something that has got me fired up. But this time is much different as this involves my own son. We recently found out that my son has been getting bullied for over two years at his school. Not just within the compounds of the school, but also while he is walking to catch his bus and at the skate park. In one week of discussion with other parents, the list of students also bullied by this boy grew by 10. All by the same boy and his cronies. In the school district code of conduct it clearly states, “We believe in a safe, caring, equitable, accountable and collaborative learning and working environment.” Just more hogwash as far as I am concerned. We were informed by the principal that he was aware of this boy and that this boy is very smart if I know what he means, and that probably nothing will happen to this boy as he has never been reported before. This on the heels of anti-bullying week when the message of zero tolerance is preached all while bullying is allowed to happen everywhere. I think it’s time to stop talking and start taking action against bullying. This boy at the very least should be suspended and also made to apologize to my son, us, his parents and the entire school. Otherwise, what lesson is he going to learn? I feel just awful for my son and the other kids that have also been impacted by this and also very proud of them for speaking up. I wish I could say that I am proud of the school system but I am not. Obviously, I would like to handle this situation on my own another way but that is just not an option. Sometimes when bullies grow up and become adults they learn the hard way if you know what I mean, wink, wink. G. Davison Chilliwack
Electorate won’t suffer hypocrisy Editor: After more than 40 years in active involvement in Canadian political campaigns, I have noticed one common thread—the electorate takes a very dim view on hypocrisy. That is, they very much dislike politicians who say one thing and then do another thing. I’m here to say that this hypocrisy exists in many areas, from the so-called “Christian” who fails to follow Christ’s examples, to the corporate leader who preaches self-reliance, to the so-called “enivronmentalist” who drives home in his gas-guzzling car. A case in point is the latest reference to B.C.’s Association of Mineral Exploration, which has called for government re-imbursement of their costs of consulting with aboriginal communities. Gavin Diroms, their CEO, has suggested that $10 to $30 million per year should be handed over to them for their costs of such consulting. Many years ago, it was national NDP leader David Lewis (yes, the father of Stephen Lewis) who referred to the corporate welfare bums, or corporations who regularly complained about the so-called “welfare bums” of society who supposedly did not work for a living. Yet, many of these same corporations were the first to be right there with their palms up begging for taxpayer funds to help their company. Giving money to the homeless or jobless was called “welfare” but, giving the same tax dollars to them was called an “investment.” Now, many of these highly profitable oil exploration companies are there with their palms out. This hypocrisy is overwhelming. You also have some so-called “Christians” who are equally at fault for dumping on the homeless and disenfranchised of society and completely fail to ask themselves “What would Jesus do?” Yes, there seems to be a good deal of hypocrisy in society, but, it does not lie entirely with the politicians.

Hoodwinked by city hall & Aevitas
Teachers need to set a good example
Editor: Re: further concerns about the Aevitas hazardous waste plant. I find unacceptable the recent comments coming from city hall through our mayor and council, as well as from Aevitas, defending the chosen location and rezoning for the hazardous waste recycling plant close to the Fraser River. Firstly, Mayor Gaetz claims that the water systems in the Fraser River watershed are all interconnected and that the Aevitas site “is as good as any other.” That should read: no site is good within the Fraser River watershed. That fact should have been discovered by city hall employing hydrologists, geologists, ecologists, etc., prior to any consideration of the rezoning application. So was a study ever requested by staff once Aevitas had applied for rezoning? Secondly, Aevitas, through its owner when asked why they had chosen this location, answered that to find this location had already taken them nine months. Furthermore, they had considered Abbotsford but “that area is on a ‘fault line.’” For such a serious company, this is an extremely naive comment considering that Chilliwack is in a very active seismic area. Because of this fact, the provincial government has been investing millions of dollars to upgrade vital infrastructures such as schools, hospitals and so on to minimize the risks to our citizens for any potential earthquakes in this region, and through which the Fraser River runs. Thirdly, staff at city hall have reported how safe this hazardous waste recycling facility is with a 20-year impeccable track record. This is an outrageously wrong claim based on statements in the March 3 Globe and Mail (Mark Hume) who reports: An Aevitas plant in Cornwall had a fire last month. It was a minor blaze, but the one that Aevitas had at its Custom Environmental Services facility in Edmonton in 2005 was not. “A witches’ brew explodes: Series of blasts at toxic-waste handling facility sends black clouds over city,” was how the Edmonton Journal described it at that time. In my opinion, the citizens of Chilliwack have been given the runaround in their concern for the Aevitas proposal. We have been hoodwinked to believe that city hall has been acting in good faith on our behalf, whereas, in fact, our concerns have been met with oblique or slanted, arguments to undermine them and to deflect from the real issues at stake. The stakeholders in Chilliwack, who want to protect our environment, and particularly our watershed, deserve much better. Ann Muehlebach Chilliwack
Editor: This is an open letter to all the teachers out there. In today’s educational environment, I know that it’s more important for teachers to spend time talking about strike action, looking at extending holiday breaks, half days, late starts, “professional development” days (which is teacher code for ‘we’re taking a day to golf rather than do anything to further advance our profession’) than it is to actually provide dedicated and supportive instruction to the children. And I know this to be the case, as I was in the teaching profession years ago, so there’s no pulling any wool over my eyes. In fact, the extent to which teachers today actually get involved with the kids is as far as giving them gold stars because they showed up for class. Out the window has gone discipline, respect and actually learning the curriculum and expecting kids to understand what’s been brought to them. This is verified by several school districts in this province that want to change the grading system from something that can direct and focus learning to a “good job done” system. Then passing them along, the whole time the students didn’t actually learn anything. However, it is somewhat “expected” by general members of the public, that when teachers take their class of kids outside the classroom and into the public, that teachers keep some form of organizational control of them, and not let them run wild all over the place. Why is it OK for two teachers to allow some 20 kids to walk willy-nilly all over the sidewalk (when there is limited space available due to accumulated snow), leaving no room for other pedestrians, but it’s not OK for the pedestrian to make notice and request the kids to allow them to pass? It’s no wonder society has become more arrogant, rude and selfish, when we do not teach our kids, mentor our children or show our youth simple courtesy, kindness and respect. I can say this with conviction, as 35 to 40 years ago, kids, when their class is in public, were to compose themselves with dignity, respect and regards while outside. Anything less than civilized behaviour was met with detention and discipline (something I think more kids need today). It’s time for teachers to take their job seriously and to heart and be the mentors and good examples for our children we pay and expect them to be. Tom Brewer Chilliwack

It’s everything or nothing for God BY SHAWN VANDOP Main Street Church
f you read the Bible you’ll discover that it lists a lot of names for God. He’s called “Protector,” Deliverer,” “Strong Tower” and “Love.” These are just a few of his names but the one that may surprise you the most is that he’s also called “Jealous.” We are told in Exodus 34:14 that we “. . . must worship no other gods, for the Lord, whose very name is Jealous, is a God who is jealous about his relationship with you.” Seems kind of weird to call God Jealous doesn’t it? Jealousy is a title reserved for people who can’t get
along over petty issues. It’s the middle school girl who becomes jealous when that boy asks someone else to the dance. It’s the hockey Dad who despises the kid who took his son’s place on the team. Those are the people we give the name “Jealous” too. Not God. It seems out of character for him. I mean, if God is perfect and knows everything would it even be possible for him to be jealous? After all, nothing competes with God. Nothing! Except for one thing—your heart. When it comes to your heart, God doesn’t like to share and because God is perfect He doesn’t have to share. It’s important that you get this because it will give you a clear glimpse of just how
God has no desire of being placed on a list where you give him just a piece of your life. much God loves you. God’s jealousy actually proves his complete commitment to you. It’s like this. If you’re married and your spouse flirts and hooks up with someone else, and you don’t get upset—it means you aren’t really committed to the relationship. If you don’t get angry, if that doesn’t make you jealous then your relationship is not genuine. It’s the same with God.
It upsets Him when you give your heart and your trust to other things believing that they are better than what God offers and who God is. God gets jealous when you give your heart to anything other than him. And so he gives us a choice. The choice is between him or your things, your money, your career or whatever else is competing for your heart. God has no desire of being placed on a list where you give him just a piece of your life. He wants it all. Why? Because he’s jealous. It’s not an insecure or immature jealousy. Rather it’s a jealousy fuelled by love and acted out in the pursuit of your heart. His jealousy pushes back

against all the other gods in our lives, those things that we look to believing they will satisfy. God knows they won’t and so his jealousy makes him relentless in his pursuit of you. He wants you to know the fullness of life that a personal relationship with him can bring. He won’t let you settle for anything less than complete access to his heart. But for that to happen it means you’ll have to give him complete access to your heart. God won’t tolerate an open relationship. It’s everything or it’s nothing. Why? Because he is jealous for you. ◗ Shawn is pastor of Main Street Church. You can contact him at email@example.com.

Express forward Cody Boyd and Chiefs forward Kurt Black keep their eye on the puck during action at last Saturday’s game at Prospera Centre.
A fitting end to dismal season BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
he Chilliwack Chiefs aptly ended what can only be described as a disastrous season with a game last Saturday that saw 16 players on the visiting team score at least one point. Poor Brendan Lamont and Mark Whiteley were the only two members of the Coquitlam Express who didn’t register a goal or an assist in a 10-5 romp over the local boys at Prospera Centre in the final game of the season. Two positives from the night: the Chiefs scored five goals, enough to win many games, and Spencer Tremblay stopped 16 of 17 shots in the second period. Tremblay’s performance was,
unfortunately, book-ended by two periods where starter Josh Halpenny allowed nine goals on 37 shots—five in the first and four in the second. The night before the shellacking at Prospera Centre, the Chiefs beat the Express at Poirier Sports and Leisure Centre. That game started badly for the Chiefs as Canon Pieper scored unassisted at 1:34, but Mathieu Tibbet scored his first of the game at the five-minute mark to tie it up. First-star and team leader Tibbet would go on to score a hat-trick. He ended the season on a four-game goal-scoring streak, with a total of 31 goals and 23 assists. The assistant captain also wrapped up the season tied for 16th in the league on a 57-game ironman streak, just one game shy of the 15 players in
the league who played 58 straight games. Blake Gober, Daniel Delbianco and Kyle Westeringh had goals in the second period of Friday’s game, matched by two Coquitlam goals, which sent the game into the third 4-3 for the Chiefs. That’s where the Express got two more, but so did Tibbet, giving the Chiefs something to feel good about taking a 6-5 win. Awards handed out With the final game behind them Saturday, the Chiefs handed out their end of season awards on Sunday. Winners were as follows: ◗ Three Stars: 1. Mathieu Tibbet 2.

Amazing comeback leads to playoff spot BY CORNELIA NAYLOR firstname.lastname@example.org
he “dogfight” is over, and the Sardis secondary senior boys basketball team has battled its way to a second straight trip to the provincials after finishing fifth at the Fraser Valley Championships Saturday. The Falcons had put themselves into a do-or-die situation last Monday, after losing to Gleneagle 76-46 in round two of the tournament. On Thursday, they faced Yale secondary and found themselves down by 21 points by the middle of the third quarter. They were still down by 14 at the beginning of the fourth, when they began closing the gap by forcing turnovers and hitting big shots. With 30 seconds left, and the Falcons still down by one point, Grade 12 captain
Falcons senior boys basketball team headed to second straight provincials Grayden Northey stole the ball, drew a foul and hit one from the free-throw line to tie up the game. There were still 20 seconds left when Yale took possession, but Sardis Grade 10 Colin Kellington came out of nowhere to steal a Yale pass with five seconds to go and drew a foul with three seconds left. He hit his first free throw but, when coach Kyle Graves told him to miss the second one on purpose, he missed the rim—a violation that once again turned the ball over to the Lions. With three seconds left, Yale had one last shot but bounced it off the rim. Graves called the game “one of the

he UFV Cascades women’s basketball team punched its fourth straight ticket to the Canada West Final Four Championship, after sweeping the University of Calgary in a quarter-final series last week. Playing at Abbotsford’s Envision Athletic Centre, the Cascades beat the Dinos 67-48 last Thursday and 60-48 Friday. On Thursday, UFV grabbed a 1-0 lead in the second minute and kept going from there on their way to a confident win. The Dinos did finally come to life in the fourth with a 23-point quarter, but it wasn’t enough to derail the Cascades. Nataliia Gavryliuk led the Cascades offence with 17 points and 11 rebounds. On Friday, the Dinos reversed the first game’s trajectory by leaping out of the gate and outscoring the Cascades 12-8 in the first quarter, but UFV countered with 25 points in the second quarter to grab a 33-30 lead at the half. The Cascades then came out swinging in the second half, and although

biggest comebacks in Sardis history.” Eric Rogers led the Sardis offence with 23 points. Hayden Lejeune scored 20 and Kellington chipped in another 14. The Falcons faced another must-win scenario against W.J. Mouat Friday, but this time the squad was ready. Sardis was up as much as 24 points in the fourth quarter, eventually defeating the Hawks 96-82 with hot outside shooting. Kellington led the way with five three-pointers for 15 points, followed by his brother, Grade 12 Evan Kellington, hitting three three-pointers for nine points. The big three of Cam Servatius, Lejeune and Rogers combined for 58 points, with Rogers dropping 30, Serva-
tius with 25 and Lejeune with 13 points. Saturday’s game for fifth place against longtime power-house program Pitt Meadows was never in doubt. Sardis was up 30-11 after the first quarter as the Falcons continued their hot shooting from the night before, nailing 12 three-pointers, with the Kellington brothers and Northey each hitting three.

the Dinos narrowed the lead to 10 (5646) with four minutes remaining in the fourth, they never quite managed to make a game of it. The Cascades outshot them, outscored them, and grabbed 15 steals to Calgary’s five. Gavryliuk once again led all scorers with 18 points Chilliwack’s Sarah Wierks and Kayli Sartori also finished in double-digits with 11 points apiece, and were instrumental in breaking down the Dino defence with transition baskets. The Cascades now travel to Edmonton to take on the University of Alberta Pandas (22-2) in a semifinal game Friday, before playing in either the gold medal or bronze medal final on Saturday against either the number-two seeded University of Regina or the third-seeded University of Saskatchewan. The top two teams will receive an automatic berth to CIS Nationals, while the bronze medal winner will have a chance at a wildcard seed. ◗ Watch the games online at canadawest.tv.

im Dickson lies bloodied and lifeless, her body slumped halfway out of a destroyed Cessna off the runway at the Chilliwack airport. The volunteer member of the Civil Air Search and Rescue Association (CASARA), however, isn’t really hurt. She’s playing a role as part of the Royal Canadian Air Force’s (RCAF) 442 Transport and Rescue Squadron search-and-rescue training exercises in the Chilliwack area last week. The three days of training were the squadron’s annual major search and rescue exercise (SAREX). On Friday, search-and-rescue technicians (SARTechs) conducted a simulated plane crash at Chilliwack airport where they tended to two injured victims. Gusting winds made a drop from one of the RCAF’s Buffalo aircraft impossible, so the plane landed, and three SARTechs, Sgt. Rob Hardie, Mcpl. Nathan King and Mcpl. Jerome Bourget emerged to find Dickson and another injured victim at the scene of the “crash.” Then two more SARTechs, Mcpl. Patrick Guitard and Mcpl. Jeff Elliott, long-lined to the crash site from a Cormorant helicopter to assist further.

ne of Chilliwack’s largest employers is now part of a $3-billion global player in the customer management services industry. Convergys Corporation announced the completion of its acquisition of Stream Global Services on Monday. Chilliwack Stream office’s site manager said employees were told Tuesday that things will be business as usual, but that the acquisition could open up more opportunities down the road. “Stream just became part of a much larger company,” Mike Robinson told the Times. He said this means both increased opportunity for career advancement for current employees, but also the potential for the local office to gain new clients, which would mean new jobs. “This just gives us exposure to many more clients around the world that will be interested in Chilliwack,” he said. “I feel confident that it’s just a matter of time before we announce the next client.” The news is not a surprise for those within the company, as Convergys announced their intention to acquire Stream back in January for $820 million. Robinson said this week’s news tripled the opportunities for advancement for employees throughout the global company. Convergys now has 125,000 employees working out of more than 150 locations in 31 countries, speaking 47 languages.
“Being Diabetic, I never had pain-free feet - UNTIL NOW!”
Pain Doctor Discovers CirculationBoosting Material In ‘Miracle Socks’ for Diabetics and Foot Pain Sufferers! B r e a k t h r o u g h f i b e r s i m p r o v e b l o o d f l o w, s w e l l i n g , b o o s t o x y g e n f l o w, and eliminate foot fatigue - naturally within minutes!
If you suffer from poor circulation, injury, swelling or any condition that leaves your feet fatigued and sore, then read on to discover the breakthrough that can change your life. Good news comes in the form of a ‘pain-busting microfiber’ that is used to weave a circulation-boosting sock, called BambusaTM. Better Blood Flow The ‘miracle sock’ is made from a new, patented anion-technology that is weaved into every strand of thread used to make a BambusaTM sock. This special micro-fiber thread is made from revolutionary bamboo charcoal to stimulate blood flow and revitalize feet. When this material comes in contact with body-heat it is proven to release circulation-boosting ions. The 3D-weave technology used in the material has been compared to infrared light therapy to help revitalize stiff and sore muscles. The manufacturer, who also makes a back and wrist sleeve, says the material provides almost instant relief to any part of the body it touches, making it ideal for diabetics, athletes, inflammation, stiffness and swelling.
Anne M. from California agrees. “Bambusa socks are absolutely the most comfortable socks I have ever worn! My feet are no longer fatigued!” Doctor Recommended Pain specialist of 30 years, Dr. Ronald Jahner comments on the 3Dweave technology, “Infrared therapy has been used for years at medical clinics to treat vascular and circulatory conditions. Physical therapists use infrared therapy to speed recovery. Better blood flow equals less pain. This microfiber works much the same way.” Therapy Without A Prescription! When the socks were photographed using a thermographic imaging camera, results showed up to a 17% to 22% increase in blood flow. This helped to improve muscle oxygenation and decrease foot fatigue. The socks have been proven to provide extended relief from cold, swollen and fatigued feet. Relief for Tired, Swollen Feet BambusaTM socks are not a medical device or compression socks because they don’t restrict blood flow. Utilizing the special negative-anion technology, they comfortably increase blood flow and oxygen to tissues.
They are ideal for diabetics and those suffering from neuropathy or injury from repetitive use. BambusaTM socks can also bring comfort to tired legs within minutes of putting them on, energizing individuals who spend long hours on their feet. BENEFITS: • Increased blood flow and oxygen • • • •
Reduced swelling and pain Anti-microbial Wicks away moisture Increased range of motion
IDEAL FOR: • Neuropathy • Raynaud's Syndrome • Cramping • Cold Feet
“I went out on the golf course for 18 holes of golf, and when I got home my feet weren’t swollen, they weren’t sweating and my feet didn’t hurt,” says Lou B. from New York.
Goodbye to Pain and Numbness Marilyn H. has suffered persistent foot problems and noticed fast results. “The issue for me was persistent numbness in my toes - it was gone completely after a few days of wearing these socks!”
Tom from NJ reports, “I suffer from chronic foot cramps. My feet were sore for days after the cramping. My wife gave me the BambusaTM socks, I wore them, and the foot cramps stopped. I replaced all my socks with BambusaTM. My feet feel great now.”
Thermographic Imaging Before Wearing BambusaTM socks
Max Temp with no BambusaTM 29.4o C
After Wearing BambusaTM socks
Max Temp with BambusaTM 33.4o C
The infrared anions generated by the charcoal bamboo increase blood flow and deliver oxygen to the tissues. After wearing for only minutes there is an increase in temperature due to the increased blood flow, resulting in improved comfort and reduced swelling. Twenty minutes after using the anion-fiber infused socks, patient has better blood flow and less numbness.

The technology used in BambusaTM socks is independently tested to boost circulation, blood flow and oxygen. These circulation-boosting socks allow you to wrap yourself in relief.

Senior dies in crash
he road, weather and visibility conditions may have been a factor in a three-vehicle crash on Highway 1 that took the life of a 71-year-old woman Sunday afternoon. Police say the crash, which shut down the highway in both directions for three-and-a-half hours, was triggered by a 2002 Nissan Pathfinder and a 2001 Isuzu Rodeo. The two vehicles were travelling east on the highway at about 1:30 p.m. when they collided and went out of control. The Isuzu landed in the slow-lane ditch on its side,
and all three occupants escaped injury. The Pathfinder, however, crossed over the centre median into the west-bound lane and collided head on with a 2007 Dodge Caliber. The 66-year-old male driver of the Caliber and 64-year-old female front passenger suffered serious but non-life-threatening injuries. A 71-year-old woman riding in the back of the car, however, was pronounced dead on the scene. The two occupants of the Pathfinder sustained minor injuries.
itnesses caught and detained a driver who hit a pedestrian in Chilliwack early Sunday morning and then tried to flee the scene, according to Chilliwack RCMP. Police say the 49-yearold’s red Mazda Miata collided with the pedestrian and then plowed into the Baker Newby office building on Kipp Avenue at about 1:20 a.m. The pedestrian sustained non-life-threatening injuries and was transported to hospital, and the office building sustained approximately $20,000 damage.
Witnesses apprehended the driver and held him until police arrived. The driver was taken into custody for an impaired investigation, as alcohol was believed to be a factor. A drunk driving charge is now pending. “We are fortunate that no one was seriously hurt in this incident,” RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen said in a press release. “This should serve as a reminder that impaired driving is still very much a public safety concern with very dire consequences.”

Ross Bollerup inside his Rosedale studio.
Inspiration M grows
BY PAUL J. HENDERSON email@example.com
garden Rosedale artist Ross Bollerup draws upon the many natural wonders that surround us
ount Cheam looms in all its natural wonder above Ross Bollerup’s Rosedale home and studio where he has been painting and printmaking now for four decades. And while his vibrant stencil creations are often inspired by the wonder of nature he sees around him, they are as often a product of the more down-to-earth vegetable gardening in his backyard. “You feel something or you see something that draws you to use what you know,” he says in his large, bright rural studio that was a chicken barn before he transformed it in 1974. “While pruning in the yard one cool fall afternoon, I looked up in response to the well-recognized honking of a huge flock of Canada geese,” he says in an artists’ statement for his new show, “The Unexpected
Garden,” coming up at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. “On its way south, high above Mount Cheam, the distant flock was silhouetted in the bright blue and white sky. This unexpected vision was part of my day in the garden. The garden space provides a venue for natural wonders to occur.” Bollerup’s paintings and “constructions” are formed using individual stencils in many different ways. Beyond basic printmaking, he sometimes finds the absence after a stencil is cut to be a focal point. “These vacancies become objects,” he says of a construction for his show; a built-up, three-dimensional creation made from the cuttings of his stencils. Bollerup has been at this for a very, very long time. He graduated with honours in painting from the Vancouver School of Art (now the Emily Carr College of Art and Design) in 1964. From a solo show at the Bau-Xi
Gallery in Vancouver in 1966 and a group show at the National Gallery in Ottawa that same year, to shows in recent years at the Legacy Gallery at the University of Victoria, Bollerup’s work has been displayed across the country, particularly in B.C., for five decades. He has exhibited throughout the Lower Mainland with one-man shows in Surrey, Victoria, Vancouver, Richmond, New Westminster, Burnaby, Maple Ridge, Coquitlam and Chilliwack and has participated in group shows across Canada and the U.S. Bollerup is represented in the public collections of the City of Vancouver, the University of Victoria, University of Saskatchewan and the Canada Council Art Bank. ◗ His show, “The Unexpected Garden,” will be on display at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre Gallery March 13 to April 26. Opening reception is March 15 from 1 to 3 p.m. Gallery hours are Wednesday to Saturday, noon to 5 p.m.

or those who know Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet only for its lovey-dovey balcony scene, the University of the Fraser Valley’s (UFV) production opening this Friday promises to be an eye-opener. Sure, Shakepeare’s original already calls for plenty of violence—what with an opening street fight and climactic revenge killing—but UFV director Paul Gélineau has amped up the grit in his production. Set in a post-apocalyptic, not-todistant future, gone are the elegant rapiers and daggers of Renaissance Verona—hello machetes, baseball bats and shivs. It should come as no surprise that fighting features prominently. Gélineau is, after all, an expert in the art of stage violence, being one of only eight fight masters in all of Canada. But he didn’t directed the fighting in this play, leaving the choreography and training of the actors to two Fight Directors Canada (FDC) apprentices from Vancouver: Mike Kovac and Ryan Bolton. “Whenever I’m directing something I hire someone else to do the fights, because when I’m in fight director head, I have to look at the characters from a standpoint of aggression and where they live in an aggressive place and build from that,” Gélineau told the Times. “If I’m directing I can’t allow myself to do that. I have to be able to look at the characters in a much broader sense.” Kovac and Bolton have worked their way up the FDC certification

It all starts in the afterlife, in a bizarre waiting room of sorts. One by one, the wives of Henry VIII arrive, much to the shock and dismay of each previous wife. What culminates is the heated frenzy of an ex-wives club where these women swap stories, toss Anne Boleyn’s head around, pick on the ugly German one, and, most importantly, fight for the right to be acknowledged as Henry’s true bride and eternal partner.
But when Henry arrives…everything changes.

Tour-de-force acting makes for one amazing piece of theatre
ing Henry VIII’s infamous marriage record is the stuff of legend—“divorced, beheaded, died, divorced, beheaded, survived”—but where his unlucky lovers ended up has remained undisclosed, until now. A one-woman theatrical tour-de-force, Til Death brings each of Henry’s six wives into the most bizarre waiting room imaginable to hectic and hilarious results. Til Death comes to the Chilliwack Cultural Centre on March 21. It all begins in the afterlife, as one by one each of Henry’s wives appears— much to the shock and dismay of the expanding assortment of the King’s spurned spouses. As this ex-wives club grows, and The Betrayed Wife, The Scheming Wife, The Peacemaker, The Ugly German, The Slutty One, and The One in Love with Someone Else arrive in
It’s a one-woman theatrical tour-de-force when Til Death visits the Cultural Centre March 21. turn, the heated heckling and domestic drama unfolds in a quirky and comical fight as each tries to be acknowledged as Henry’s true bride and eternal partner. The wives swap stories, toss Ann Boleyn’s head around, pick on the ugly German one, and chaos naturally ensues until the lustful King Henry himself appears . . . and everything changes. This ludicrous and uproarious tale of six wives, six queens, six deaths, and one perpetually picky King is a feast of hilarious expressions, accents, and tales, and is brought to you by just one incredibly versatile actress. Tara Travis has played over 50 characters in Mini Masterpieces, the entire company of actors and 15 other characters in The Shakespeare Show, and a giant girl in Lavinia: A Modern Fairy
Tale of Gigantic Proportions. Travis’s ability to transform into each of these characters earned her performance of Til Death a five-star rating at the Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival, and praise as “the most impressive acting feat in the festival” by the Winnipeg Free Press. Simultaneously carrying the huge personalities of these eclectic characters, and seamlessly bounding from energetic conversations to frantic disputes with herself with incredible skill and verbal virtuosity, Travis is guaranteed to have you howling with laughter. ◗ For tickets call the centre box office at 604-391-SHOW (7469), visit in person or purchase online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca.

unique opportunity to experience a taste of the world-renowned Chicago Symphony Orchestra is just around the corner when its French horn extraordinaire, Oto Carrillo, joins pianist Sarah Hagen for the climactic finale of the Rain Mountain Classical Music Series at the Cultural Centre on Friday, March 14, 2014. With Oto’s reputation as a leading talent in one the very best orchestras in the world, and Sarah’s innovative approach to assembling delicate and emotive piano compositions, Sarah Hagen with Special Guest Oto Carrillo will be an emphatic and beautiful way to conclude this series of amazing morning concerts. Oto Carrillo’s life has revolved around classical music since a young age. Born in Guatemala, but raised surrounded by music in Chicago, Oto grew up admiring the acclaimed horn section of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. This inspirational environment led Oto to attend Chicago’s DePaul University to study towards his Bachelor’s Degree in Music Performance, and earn his Master’s Degree with an added specialism in Musicology from Northwestern. With his seemingly endless talent, and devotion to the mastery of the French horn, Oto was destined to live his dream of becoming a part of the Chicago Symphony
Orchestra, to which he was invited to join in 2000. Years of experience and mastery of his instrument took Oto back to DePaul University, to walk its halls this time as an instructor in the acclaimed Horn Studio from which he graduated. The lifelong dedication to his art has come to fruition in Oto’s career with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and the Cultural Centre is honoured to welcome this spectacular musician to Chilliwack. Oto will be performing alongside the rising star of Canadian classical music, Sarah Hagen, who has been heard in concert halls and on the airwaves to critical acclaim from North American to Europe. Praised for her exquisite phrasing and refreshingly imaginative approach, Sarah is an invigorating energy in the recital hall, and has been making creative leaps in her conceptually inventive and liberated interpretation of classical music. This duet with Oto Carrillo will be the fourth and final installment of Sarah’s appearances at the Cultural Centre, in which she has
collaborated with an array of exceptional classical musicians, and this performance will be the final opportunity to witness this wonderful young artist in Chilliwack this season. Both Sarah and Oto were among the faculty at the Symphony Orchestra Academy of the Pacific, and have previously brought their skills together to perform compositions by Mozart and other famous composers. For their appearance at the Cultural Centre they have assembled a programme of works that Oto tells us will include Beethoven, Strauss, and Bozza, and that will feature “lightning quick virtuosity and beautiful tender melodies” that will delight audiences and showcase the magnificence of horn and piano in this intimate setting. So for your final opportunity to experience the morning splendour of the Rain Mountain Classical Music Series, make sure to come along and be dazzled by the talents of these two stars of North American classical music on March 14, 2014. Coffee and treats will also be provided courtesy of Sardis Bakery; there could be no better way to start a perfect day than with this beautiful morning concert. Call the Centre Box Office at 604-391-SHOW(7469) or visit www. chilliwackculturalcentre.ca to book tickets! Sarah Hagen with Special Guest Oto Carrillo is generously sponsored by Sardis Bakery, The Chilliwack Times, Department of Canadian Heritage, City of Chilliwack, British Columbia Arts Council and The Province of British Columbia.

Muriel Morris (back row, third from the right) poses with humanities colleagues for a 1975 Chilliwack senior secondary yearbook photo.
She has her old classroom door OLD SCHOOL, from page 1
CSS English teacher Muriel Morris has used wiener-dog cartoons to make Shakespeare more accessible to students for decades. and made the staffroom a better place. “We have more fun,” Morris said. “The guys were always collegial and respectful, but it’s sort of an easier relationship now, in that gender doesn’t factor in. You’re a teacher rather than a female teacher.” Another big change Morris has seen over the last 40 years has been the explosion in technology in the classroom. From the chalk, film projectors and card-catalogue research of the 1970s to the smart boards, document cameras and infinite online resources of today, the veteran teacher has seen it all. When it comes to English, though, she said the essentials haven’t really changed. “It’s still the kids discovering the world in the book,” she said. When it comes to her legacy, Morris will likely be most remembered for a quirky skill she honed during staff meetings in the mid’80s. A dachshund owner since she was 12-years-old, Morris began doodling her favourite canines to pass the time at meetings (she declined to name who her principal was at the time). Having mastered the art, she began applying it in the classroom to illustrate Shakespeare’s plays. “By that time I had gotten to the
point where I could draw wiener dogs with a whole lot of expressions,” she said. St a r t i n g w i t h Ma c d a c h s – a tale of wiener-dog ambition run amok—Morris built up a bank of 12 dachshund Shakespeares eventually published in 1990 as Shakespeare Made Easy: An Illustrated Approach. She published more wiener-dog plays on her website, Shakespeare Goes to the Dogs, which was featured in the National (UK) Shakespeare Institute’s exhibition, “Shakespeare, Man of the Millenium” in 2000. At the old CSS, one of her iconic cartoon dachshunds, holding a copy of Hamlet, he been painted on the door to room 210. That door is now in Morris’s basement. “I said, ‘I’m taking my door,’ and, bless their hearts, in early July my door was delivered to my house,” she said. She’s happy her door was spared, but when asked how she felt about the new school ditching the old CSS place names, like the J.Y. Halcrow Gymnasium (named after her first boss), Morris said it might be time to just let it go. “I think they don’t have relevance to the students any more,” she said “and this building needs to make its own history.”

“It is going to make it easier to retire,” she told the Times. “This is like living in a lovely luxury hotel, but the old building was home.” Before walking out of room 205 for the last time last June, Morris waited until everyone else had gone home for the summer. She then took one final solitary tour of the school. “I was taking a last mental snapshot of the building, the dimensions, the comfy darkness, if you will, just to say goodbye to it.” She had first walked into that old building in 1971, when cigarette smoke still billowed from the staffroom door at lunchtime and almost all the teachers there were men. Fresh out of UBC’s teaching program at age 23, she had secured an interview with then-principal J.Y. Halcrow, who had dressed up that day for a visit from the Governor General. She remembers he wore red patent-leather shoes. “He had on a blue blazer, white slacks and red patent shoes,” Morris said. “I was fascinated; I had never seen a man in red patent shoes.” She was eventually offered the job and replaced Mike Harms, who left teaching to pursue a professional wrestling career as The Magnificent Mennonite. As one of only three female teachers teaching an academic subject when she was hired, Morris has seen her share of changes over the last four decades. In 1971, for example, women were expected to wear dresses, but she remembers the day of civil disobedience that changed all that. “One day, pant suits had come in,” Morris said, “and all the ladies on staff got together and we all wore pant suits. The principal took one look at us, went back into his office and spent the day reading the newspaper.” More importantly, she said, the increase in women on staff over the years has given girls role model—
