Mt. Cheam had province’s lowest rate of vaccination BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

J

ust over one-third of elementary schools in Chilliwack have a measles vaccination rate high enough to prevent spread of the disease, according to Fraser Health statistics. Healthcare officials say vaccinations rates in a community need to be 90 per cent to ensure infectious diseases are not transmitted among members. Eleven of 29 local schools had a rate higher than 90 per cent. Numbers obtained by the Vancouver Sun from Vancouver Coastal and Fraser health authorities for 2012/13 show four schools in the city had a rate below 80 per cent, Watson (79 per cent), Cascade Christian (71 per cent), La Verendrye (70 per cent) and Timothy Christian (62 per cent). But it was Mt. Cheam Christian with a vaccination rate of less than 10 per cent that was the lowest in the entire Lower Mainland. Mt. Cheam Christian was the epicentre of a measles outbreak earlier this year with more than 400 confirmed cases in four weeks. Six schools in Chilliwack reported a vaccination rate of 95 per cent or higher: Evans, Greendale, Tyson, Unity Christian, Vedder and Chilliwack

hen large studio film crews roll into a community, their presence can be seen as both a blessing and a nuisance. Location managers and the many production assistants who work hard to negotiate with local businesses and keep an active city clear of unwanted cars and people during shots are used to at least a little backlash. Detoured drivers yell at crew members blocking main thoroughfares. Some business owners decry a lull in business during shooting. But shops downtown have been compensated, if modestly, for the disruptions, and the temporary inconveniences are far outweighed by the direct and indirect economic impact the film industry can have on a city, according to those involved. For five days last week, the 2015 Paramount film Monster Trucks shot scenes in the core of Chilliwack, bringing 300 crew members to town as “cat and mouse” car chase scene were filmed on city streets. Crews are scheduled to be back in town for three more days May 26 to 28. Wayne Price of Virtual Broadcast Network is a member of the Chilliwack film commission and he says while it’s hard to pin down exact numbers, the benefit to the community is huge.

Paul J. Henderson/TIMES

Local residents visited downtown Chilliwack to see filming of Monster Trucks last week.

Paramount Studios brings movie magic to downtown streets and one down-on-their-luck family discovers that the film crew also has a big and generous heart

“It is estimated a film this size can bring into a local economy anywhere between $500,000 to $750,000 for the period of days of actual shooting and the prep work before and after the filming is done,” Price said. “This film being shot in Chilliwack has a crew size of 300 and they all are staying in local hotels, where they spend their per diem on food, drinks, et cetera.” Price said the downtown Royal Hotel was booked solid with crew members also staying at the Coast, the Hampton Inn and the Best Western. “They buy materials from local suppliers and catering buys fresh produce and meats from local vendors. Local businesses from building contractors to background performers are used. The list goes on.” And sometimes, crew members go above and beyond in ways that are hard to believe. One member of the crew, who did not want her name used in the paper, told the Times about an event last week that led to an act of charity for a down-on-their-luck family. It started when the family from Harrison Hot Springs stopped at Common Exchange

Pawn Brokers on Victoria Avenue, trying to get a $20 loan for a broken laptop, according to employee Tammy Howse. The couple with a five-year-old boy then couldn’t start their vehicle. Someone from the film crew overheard the problem and called over one of the many mechanics on set to see if he could help. The crew member described to the Times what happened next: The “car guy” as she described him, realized the vehicle needed a part so he drove to Abbotsford to get it. He came back, put it in the vehicle and it still wouldn’t start. In the meantime, the crew member gave the family gift certificates to local restaurants and to Sticky’s Candy. The end was result was that one of the film company’s drivers had a car he wasn’t using so he gave it to the family free of charge. “This was just the film crew doing it out of the goodness of their hearts,” Price said. “Between our store and the film crew, we helped out the best way we could,” Howse said. The crew member who told the sto-

ry—which “made some of the girls almost cry”—said it was an example of the good things they sometimes do above and beyond. “We’re doing a good job here,” she said. “You know? More people need to be aware.” Another thing to consider, according to Price, and something that is impossible to calculate, is the long-term benefits of having a popular movie filmed in the city. Monster Trucks may not exactly be First Blood, but Hope still sees tourists visit just to see where the character John Rambo roamed the streets during filming of the 1982 movie. “It may bring a bit of inconvenience to a few but over the long term we all benefit,” Price said. Mayor Sharon Gaetz added that the filming has been a real team effort for all the local agencies involved. “I appreciate all the hard work CEPCO, the film commission and the downtown BIA have put into this opportunity and am glad we have such strong partners working together to benefit our community,” she said via email.

Charges against postie put end to mail theft mystery

“This woman looks nothing like me. It’s really scary that some random person can pose as you.”

BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

W

hen mail is accidentally put into the wrong box in Nichole Sutton’s townhouse complex, neighbours usually knock on one another’s door and clear things up. So more than 14 days after her new driver’s licence and BC Services Card were mailed to her Chilliwack address, and when she hadn’t heard from a neighbour, she wondered where the documents were. “I didn’t hear anything,” she told the Times. “I called the post office to see and they said I definitely should have received it.” The government agencies didn’t get the documents returned to sender so Sutton wasn’t sure what else to do. “There was nothing really that I could to except wait, which really sucks especially because it was government ID and I needed it,” she said. Then a week later her mystery was solved. Chilliwack RCMP called her to say that someone had been arrested in possession of Sutton’s identification. Mounties have been investigating a number of mail thefts over the past several months, and last week made what they are calling a “significant arrest” of a Canada Post employee. Candace Waller of Chilliwack has been charged with theft of mail, possession of stolen property and fraud.

Paul J. Henderson/TIMES

Nichole Sutton’s driver’s licence and BC Services Card went missing from her mailbox at her Chilliwack townhouse. A Chilliwack Canada Post worker faces charges. Her next court appearances is set for June 3. “Canada Post investigators have been paramount as Waller is an employee of Canada Post,” said Cpl. Brock Rayworth, the officer in charge of the Chilliwack RCMP Property Crime section.

“The Chilliwack Property Crime section has been working hand in hand with Canada Post investigators on this and other investigations.” Local Mounties they have taken a proactive approach to the problem of mail theft and it’s working. “We have seen a decrease in mail

thefts of close to 70 per cent since January of this year,” Cpl. Rayworth said. “The members of the UFVRD Property Crime section have worked some very long hours on these time consuming investigations, and the end result has been a significant reduction in the thefts of mail in the

Upper Fraser Valley.” Sutton said the incident hasn’t necessarily made her distrust Canada Post nor does she blame the Crown corporation, pointing out that even when screened, there are bad apples in all organizations. “You just have to be on the ball with it and protect yourself,” she said. “You have to work proactively.” The local pilates instructor said she was told someone opened a cellphone account and tried to open a bank account with the stolen driver’s licence. “Which is really scary, because as someone who works with the public, you need to really check IDs when these people are coming in,” she said. “This woman looks nothing like me. It’s really scary that some random person can pose as you.” She also wonders why when something important like a driver’s licence or a health card are sent in the mail, there isn’t tracking as there is with courier deliveries. “There needs to be something implemented for government ID,” she said.

City steps up and offers new location for Cyrus Centre BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

T

wo months after news broke of a controversial eviction of a popular downtown coffee shop to make way for a homeless youth centre, the much-needed facility has a home. And it’s right across the street from Decades Coffee Club, which is still serving espresso and pastries. Last week the City of Chilliwack announced that the building at 45845 Wellington Ave. — now vacant but most recently occupied by Chilli-

wack Community Services — will be leased to the Cyrus Centre. “The addition of Cyrus Centre in Chilliwack will help address the important need for a youth shelter space and help protect one of the most vulnerable groups in our community,” Mayor Sharon Gaetz said in a press release. “One strong point made by the 2014 FVRD Homeless Count report was that we need to work with community partners, both government and non-government, to find innovative ways to reduce homelessness. This is just another innovative way that the City of Chilli-

Centre, withdrew its application. “City Life Church will continue to actively engage in a search to find an alternate location,” the March release said. “We remain completely committed to seeing Cyrus Centre open its doors in our community.” Many critics of the original plan pointed to the city’s downtown revitalization plans, wondering how the removal of a commercial business to make way for a non-profit could possibly fit in. One of the immediate suggestions by some opposed to the Decades eviction was the city-owned building across the street.

wack is addressing that need.” The Cyrus Centre received considerable attention in March when it was learned that Decades and owner Ron Laser, after 16 years in its current location, was to be evicted. A Cash Mob was scheduled for March 15 for Decades, an online petition to save the coffee shop was created, and hundreds of comments were received on the Times’ website and on Facebook. Because of the groundswell of support, City Life Church who was to buy the building and had applied for a temporary use permit for the Cyrus

In the press release issued May 16, city hall stated that in terms of location, “it is important to both the City of Chilliwack and Cyrus Centre that the centre is properly situated in the community and that commercial property is not utilized for a non-profit purpose.” The Wellington Avenue property fits the criteria, and zoning will not need to be changed for Cyrus Centre, according to city hall. Under the terms of the lease, a good neighbour agreement will be put in place. No move in date has yet been confirmed.

e’re curious where the anger comes from and how deeply rooted it is. We’re talking about the palpable distaste, even disdain that surfaces in public discourse for “left wingers” or “right wingers,” to the point where the phrases are tossed around like epithets. In the media business it crops up regularly, usually in the context of someone finding an easy way to dismiss someone else’s idea or opinion. And we wonder: how can this be fixed? Because it needs to be fixed. Certainly part of it can be chalked up to the media and its penchant for framing stories as conflict. Certainly it has to do with our electoral system and the way it segregates people into camps then pits them against each other in a dogfight for power. When you are invested in a battle of any kind, it is human nature to think the worst of your opponent. But we aren’t sure this quality always represents the best of human nature. And much of the responsibility for these adversarial relationships also needs to be placed on the shoulders of individuals. How guilty are we of equating the distasteful words and actions of a single “leftie” or “rightie” to the default mindset of an entire group of people? How respectful are we of other points of view? How much of an effort are we making to see things from other people’s perspective? Rational thinking demands an open mind. Civil discourse demands civility.

New recycling rules a costly tax

E

nvironment Minister Mary Polak recently announced that many small businesses will be exempt from onerous new recycling rules set to come into effect this May. While it’s always better to have fewer businesses affected by dumb rules, the minister’s announcement doesn’t change the fact that the new recycling plan delivers no demonstrated environmental benefit while increasing prices to consumers and costs to the many businesses of all sizes that will still be affected. The government’s announcement is the policy equivalent of putting lipstick on a pig. The province’s new approach to recycling should be abandoned. Here are 10 reasons why: 1) The new recycling rules add enormous costs to businesses and put a hidden tax on consumers for no environmental benefit over our existing (and very functional) blue-box programs. The new program is estimated to cost more than $100 million just to run. This does

LAURA JONES Be Our Guest not include the huge cost of compliance. 2) The new recycling plan grants monopoly taxing and regulating power to an arms-length group (MultiMaterial B.C.) that has no real accountability to anyone. 3) B.C. recycling policy should be made in B.C. This recycling policy is generated by and for a small board of Toronto-based multinational corporations. 4) The new recycling rules are so complicated that there is massive confusion regarding who is affected and how to comply. Businesses are being advised to check with their regulatory affairs and finance departments. For most small business owners, this means checking with themselves. 5) The new rules never would have passed the government’s own regulatory

reform checklist because the costs aren’t justified and the program is too complicated to be easily understood. 6) The new rules are not small-business friendly. Some small businesses are even being bullied by big businesses to comply. One supermarket told their small-business suppliers that they have to comply with the new rules and that the supermarket will not accept any price increases to make up for the additional compliance costs. 7) Community newspapers will have a very hard time absorbing the additional costs. Some papers have closed, and others are sure to follow if the program goes forward. 8) The economic viability of existing recycling depots in small towns across the province is threatened. These depots provide local jobs and many have been on the front lines of helping promote environmental objectives in their municipalities for over a decade. 9) The rules are ostensibly about reducing packaging but there are no direct incentives to reduce packaging in the program.

“The government’s announcement is the policy equivalent of putting lipstick on a pig .” - Laura Jones

10) The public and small businesses were never properly consulted about abandoning the existing blue-box programs and replacing them with a program run by an unaccountable board of big businesses. It’s a bit of a head-scratcher as to why a government that has championed the importance of a strong economy based on B.C. priorities would go forward with wasteful, destructive policy designed by Toronto big business. The only good news is that it’s not too late to reconsider. ◗ Laura Jones is executive vice -president of the Canadian Federation of Independent Business.

Anti-church bias taints Historymaker’s good deeds

Editor: The last time I read an article written by Paul Henderson (March 2014 Re: Decades Coffee) it was also ladened with a pile of anti-church bias. Jumping on the bandwagon of Christian discrimination, Henderson’s article reads like an editorial soapbox and nothing like front-page objective journalism. “Seemingly supernatural phenomena, theatre, magic, show, manipulation” all sound like someone with an axe to grind instead of reporting on a large community event. Maybe the “big clock” is simply an effort to keep things on time. Maybe the 19-year-olds counselling 14-year-olds is an awesome example of care and community. Maybe the speakers and musicians are using their gifts and talents to communicate positive things to my 14-yearold daughter and her friends who are attending this weekend. Why would any parent not want this for their kid? It’s unfortunate the Times didn’t receive a response from Next Generation Ministries. The Times points to the life story of Mr. Fenn, but the article speaks nothing of even the possibility that thousands of lives have been powerfully and positively impacted over the many years of Historymaker; nevermind the many positive effects an event of this size has in our community. A few years ago, I was in an incredibly poor community in rural Kenya. I was visiting a friend who runs a community and school for AIDS orphans. As I toured the project I saw a new water well that provides clean water for the orphans and the surrounding community. I was told the clean water is saving many lives. On the base of the well I read the words “Historymaker” written by finger in the cement. It was explained that the $10,000 it took to drill the well was given by a group of youth and young adults who gather for a conference in Chilliwack. Now, that is a show of faith. Dave Blundell, executive director Hungry For Life International

The Christian life is about Christ Editor: Re: A Show of Faith, the Times, May 15. Although certain elements we see in the entertainment industry have infiltrated the Christian church, converting to atheism hardly seems to be the answer to the problem. To presume there is no God, one would have to be all-knowing. In order to be all-knowing, however, one would have to be God. Even though we may expect those who claim to be Christians to live and act a certain way, the Christian life is about Christ, not people. Looking to people rather than God and His Word, can easily derail us. God gave everyone freedom of choice otherwise we would all be robots. Freely desiring to follow Him is a fundamental quality of our relationship with Jesus. There are those who have chosen to make Christianity their “business.” Failing to develop a close, personal relationship with our Saviour (by their fruit we can tell), they are vulnerable to being mislead, ending up taking control and doing their own thing. In His Word God warns of those who practise a form of Christianity, but fail to produce real, biblical fruit. True Christianity is expressed through a way of life, not just a Sunday morning

routine or a conference event where people’s ears might be tickled. 1 Samuel 16:7: “People look at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.” Christ did not come to give us entertainment, business opportunities or careers, nor did He come to give us a new religion—He came to give us life. Mario C. Alleckna Chilliwack

Popular yes, but never common Editor: Paul Henderson’s column “No known cure for pedanticitus” brought to mind an experience while in Grade 3 which would place it in 1958. My teacher, Mrs. Knott was one of the people whom one can only hope to find engaged in moulding one’s young life. Many of the lessons and perspectives introduced have developed and become foundational to my character. Mrs. Knott was very “proper” and particular in all things, which seemed to have had the opposite effect on me from that which is asserted by so many people today. I was not stifled in my exploration of concepts, neither was my creativity compromised. What was provided was a solid and rational basis onto which to form and examine. While I experienced, and taught along side, many “duds,” Mrs. Knott was a shining example of the possible. One of my very favourite experiences was on an occasion when a man asked of Mrs. Knott, “What is your name?”. She responded that it was “Knott. “K”, “N”, “O”, “T”, “T”.” He observed, “That’s quite a common name.” She bristled and retorted, “It may be prolific and it may be popular, but it is NEVER COMMON!” A life lesson which has stuck with me as to how precise distinctions in language are vital to understanding one another. Call me a dinosaur but, like you know how like you like, like don’t like always like understand like,

what I’m saying, you know? No, Mrs. Knott was anything but “common” in all senses of the word. As important to me as was Mrs. Watts to Christopher Hitchens. Norm Keller Chilliwack

Worried about state of local association Editor: Being a parent/grandparent comes with its challenges, but it seems it doesn’t subside in any minor sports club in the city. From over zealous parents at hockey games, to injuries in football and the competition between school sports and community sports, it seems impossible to find a place for kids to be energetic and exercised without the politics and bickering. With the recent difficulties in neighbouring cities with regards to soccer clubs and players, it is worrisome that Chilliwack will be next. With a board consisting of almost 50 per cent being paid for one thing or another, a chair who also holds seats on several other soccer committees as well employed by another sports organization in the city, it’s difficult to not see that this sport may hold the same fate as the surrounding cities. As a grandparent it is difficult to hear the talk on the field and not see that it is only a matter of time before we may be travelling to play the game, because the hands in the pot seem to be gaining from what is made out to be all volunteer work. Mitchell Baker Chilliwack

A ticket or two will send a message Editor: Is there not a law regarding riding bicycles on the sidewalk? I walk with a stick and I can’t count

the numbers of times that I have had to move, been brushed by and even sworn at by cyclists on the sidewalks on Young and Yale. These are not toddlers. They are teens, young adults and adults. A ticket or two may send a message to all. Scott Wallis Chilliwack

Stunt pilot making far too much noise Editor: The Red Baron flies again but he’s certainly no hero. My elderly mother, my sister visiting from Nelson and myself all were just sitting down to a lovely first lunch outside on our deck when all of a sudden it sounded like World War 3 had started. The sound was deafening. To our dismay we had to go back inside and finish our lunch there thanks to Dave Matheson. He is the one who seemingly has no consideration for Chilliwack folks since he moved here two years ago, flying his little plane above the homes near the airport, doing his dangerous flips and turns while making a whole lot of racket. First I phoned city hall and they couldn’t help except give me a number. Then I phoned John Martin’s MLA office and I complained and said we may not vote for them if they wouldn’t do something about this. Their answer was “we don’t really care about the vote.” And that is not a misquote. If you are fed up with this outlandish noise, please phone Transport Canada as did my husband. It seems that if enough people phone them, they may revoke Matheson’s licence and stop this dude who is rude. This flyer could, after all, go fly over some mountains somewhere and only bother the bears and the cougars. Kathleen McCune Chilliwack

› Faith Today BY GRAHAM MCMAHON Church of the Nazarene

W

ith Easter now a month behind us, I still find it necessary to pause and remember the story of the cross. The act of selfless love demonstrated by Jesus on the cross seems to constantly generate new meaning. I have been reminded of this recently as I have walked with folks who have been hurt by others. Often when someone hurts us, wrongs us, or when we have experienced an injustice at the hands of another, we react. If no one stands up for us, we take matters into our own hands. We retaliate. We try to find allies to pit against the one who has hurt us. We speak down about them. We get bitter. We get resentful. One of Jesus’ disciples, a man named Peter, wrote a letter three

The Cross: the third way

decades after the resurrection to several small communities of new Christians spread throughout the Roman Empire. The Christian faith was barely 30 years old and its followers found themselves at odds with the cultures, powers, and religions around them. These Jesus followers became the targets of ridicule, discrimination, and persecution. They were suffering. Like any of us, they wanted to react, perhaps by fighting back, or perhaps by giving up and capitulating to the pressure; if they couldn’t beat their persecutors, they could join them. Peter offered a third way: the way of Jesus on the cross. In his letter

Peter uses Jesus’ reaction to the ridicule, humiliation, and physical torment he experienced on the cross as the example for these new Christians. Peter says, “When he was abused, he did not return abuse; when he suffered, he did not threaten; but he entrusted himself to the one who judges justly” (1 Peter 2:23). Jesus’ reaction was not to retaliate, but to trust God. In fact, Luke’s account of Jesus on the cross portrays him praying for those who persecuted him: he asks God to “… forgive them; for they do not know what they are doing” (Luke 23:34). In his own teaching to his disciples, Jesus instructs them to “Love your

enemies and pray for those who persecute you…” (Matthew 5:44). Jesus fully embodied this teaching on the cross. Some might see this as being a doormat, or perhaps as whitewashing a grievous injustice. It is just the opposite. Jesus suffered a corrupt trial and an unjust death, yet he did not whitewash this. His prayer for his persecutors’ forgiveness reveals that he knew their actions were unjust. And as far as being a doormat, choosing to bless instead of curse, choosing to love instead of retaliate, choosing to forgive instead of resent, requires the utmost strength and courage.

As crazy as it seems, Jesus was dying for the very people that put him on the cross and were at that moment hurling insults at him. How could this kind of love be seen as weakness? Imagine if this third way were the way we approached conflict with others, or those who have wronged us. We might not find an instant solution or vindication, but we would not get caught in an endless cycle of retaliation and resentment. If we choose to love and bless instead of retaliate and curse, then healing and hope become an option. This third way becomes an invitation to those who have done harm to us to find peace with us. ◗ Graham McMahon is a pastor at the Chilliwack Church of the Nazarene.

Wills&Estates

CHILLIWACK TIMES

Half of BC Adults Do Not Have a Will, according to a BC Notaries’ Poll. Only 51% of British Columbians have a current and legal Will, according to a province-wide poll conducted by the Mustel Group for The Society of Notaries Public of BC. Wills are a critical tool for outlining one’s wishes for the distribution of assets, guardianship of minor children, and the designation of an Executor who takes care of administering the estate. Without a Will, the Court will determine who will be the Executor, and the law will decide who is entitled to the estate. Who should have a Will? Any adult in B.C. who

owns property including real estate, vehicles or other assets; has a dependent spouse or children, and wishes to have someone they know and trust take care of their estate after their death. Courtesy of Simpson Notaries. www.simsponnotaries.com. What is a will? A will is a document which states what you want done with the assets that you own when you die. These assets typically consist of real estate, money, investments, and personal or household belongings that you own. You can change your will at any time and it has no legal effect until you die.

McLean’s Funeral Services Ltd. “Chilliwack’s only locally owned and family operated Funeral Service.”

Servicing At-Need & Pre-Need

A will doesn’t deal with certain assets. A will generally doesn’t cover assets that you don’t own at your death. For example, a joint bank account or a house owned in joint tenancy has a “right of survivorship” and will be owned by the joint survivor when you die. Also, a will does not apply to assets like life insurance, RRSPs, RRIFs and TFSAs, where you have already designated a beneficiary. A will is only one part of an overall estate plan. There are opportunities to transfer assets to beneficiaries outside of a will, without tax and other cost consequences. This is called “estate planning”

In a will, you name a person or company to be the “executor.” The executor is responsible for safeguarding the estate, gathering up your assets, paying your debts (including income taxes), dividing what remains of your estate among the “beneficiaries” (the people named in your will to receive a share of your estate) What happens if you don’t make a will? When there’s no will, your net estate is distributed to your next of kin according to rules in BC’s statutes.

Total control

R

ick Samuels spends most of his free time standing in a field. It’s a very nice field. The grass was seeded three years ago and is growing in well. It’s bordered on one side by a pond and on another by a line of trees. In the distance, rolling hills rise gently above farmland. But of course the field isn’t as important as what flies above it. While Samuels stands in the field, a handful of remote-controlled (RC) airplanes and helicopters wheel and soar above him. Samuels is the president of the Fraser Valley RC Flyers, a club that has called this Fairfield Island field home for the last three years. They welcome any sort of RC vehicle; the pond occasionally doubles as a landing pad for miniature float planes, and the club is in the process of finishing up a dirt track for RC cars, trucks and buggies. One of Samuels’ favourite vehicles is the 3D flyer, which can maneuver and hover in the air like a hummingbird. “Everyone is welcome,” Samuels says, quoting the club’s motto. “I don’t care what you have—if you’re interested in remote-controlled vehicles, you are welcomed here.” The club is a mix of all ages, and Samuels describes it as something that appeals to everyone. Young people get the hang of it easily, which he attributes to increased hand-eye coordination developed by video games. The hobby also draws a sizeable demographic of seniors and retirees. “In the mornings we get this huge group of retired people who come in. They just want to fly and talk to the

Spring Fun Fly this weekend

The Fraser Valley RC Flyers welcome every kind of remote-controlled vehicle at their Ballam Road field, including airplanes, helicopters, trucks, boats and 3D flyers. people who show up there,” Samuels says with a laugh. “We have one—his name is Elmer—he drives in from Gibsons Road on an electric scooter with planes tied to the back. And he’s been flying planes for 30, 40 years.” Once a person catches the RC bug, it stays for life. Samuels says a fair number come to the hobby as kids, and even if they get distracted by other

hobbies (“or girls!” Samuels says with a laugh) as teenagers, they still show up at the field once in a while to fit in a few hours of flying here and there. Just about anyone can pick it up with time and practice. RC vehicles have become less expensive and easier to find over time. Several hobby stores in town carry a variety of vehicles, from trucks to helicopters, and the club

members are always willing to lend a guiding hand. “What we recommend, number one, before you buy anything—we recommend that they come to the field. You basically show up on any nice weekend, watch the guys fly, and we’ll look at what you want to get into,” Samuels says. They have a system of linking two controls together, called “buddy-box-

ing,” so novices can try it out but have an experienced flyer step in if they get nervous. Flight simulator programs are also useful, Samuels notes, to help build up hand-eye co-ordination and get a feeling for how a plane or helicopter will react in real life. “Like anything else, if you stick at it and put the time into it you’ll eventually get it,” Samuels says. “I’ve never seen someone who wasn’t able to fly when they put the time into it.” Welcoming new flyers is part of the Fraser Valley RC mantra; Samuels says a lot of clubs start to die out because of an “old boys’ club” mentality, which is a real shame—and something Samuels wants to avoid in the Fraser Valley. After all, community is at the heart of the club. When their old flying field sold, another member stepped up to offer a piece of his farmland. They’re putting together a clubhouse from an old cabin, donated doors and windows, and a whole lot of volunteer elbow grease and love. As a group, they’re rebuilding a giant plane with a 14-foot wingspan, which they plan to bring out for big events and hang in the clubhouse the rest of the time. Passion brings and keeps the members together, and that’s something Samuels strives to pass on to new members. “You’re made to feel welcome,” he says, “and when you feel welcome, it’s like a second home to you.” ◗ Their next big event, the Spring Fun Fly, is this weekend (May 24), but anyone interested in the club is welcome to show up at the field at 47117 Ballam Rd. in Chilliwack any weekend with good weather. For more information, email president Rick Samuels at rsamuels@telus.net or visit www.fvrcf.com.

Vitamin C is for Heart Health D

Dr. William Stebhens, Professor of Anatomy at Wellington University proved Pauling was right. Stebhens’ research showed that the coronary arteries closest to the heart are under the greatest pressure. This causes collagen to fracture resulting in the formation of a blood clot and death. Vitamin C is required to make collagen, the glue that holds coronary cells together, just like mortar is needed for bricks. Lysine, like steel rods in cement, makes collagen stronger.

Dr. Sydney Bush, has also shown vitamin C can reverse atherosclerosis. Dr. Bush took retinal

images, then started his patients on high doses of vitamin C. A year later the scans showed the atherosclerosis had regressed in the retinal arteries. This also occurs in the coronary arteries.

But to take large doses of anything requires swallowing many pills. For years I’ve been trying to find a company that would make a combination of vitamin C and lysine. Medi-C Plus is now available at Sardis Health. Dr. W. Gifford-Jones For more information about Medi-C Plus, visit Sardis Health Foods 300 g

r. Linus Pauling, two-time Noble Prize winner proved that large amounts of vitamin C are needed to prevent heart attacks. Dr. Pauling found that animals make vitamin C but humans do not. That’s why sailors died of scurvy during sea voyages, but the ship’s cat survived.

Kuro Asian Cuisine staffers line up some of the many sauces used during their food preparation.

in Kim has big plans for the future, and he’s found the perfect foundation right here in Chilliwack. Kim learned a passion for food at the knee of his mother Petra Kim, who has been the owner and operator of award-winning Hana Sushi on Luckakuck for almost 20 years. Two years ago, Kim branched out from sushi to embrace the broad cornucopia of asian flavour, using local ingredients for a winning asian-fusion combination at Kuro Asian Cuisine at Eagle Landing. Now that passion for complex

6472137

Local produce, local restaurant, local sauce flavours has sparked his newest venture: a line of sauces produced locally, drawing primarily on local ingredients. Kuro has committed to using local ingredients since its inception, and it seemed a natural step to bring its popular in-house sauces to a wider audience. “The sauces came up because that’s something that my mother had a passion for for a long time,” Kim says. “All of the sauces are something that

we use in the restaurant—from salad dressings to meat marinades.” They’re starting with a spread of salad dressings, ranging from a sweet and spicy hot sauce to a green tea dressing. It’s all about giving back to Chilliwack. Kim has a partnership already in place with Local Harvest, a farm and farm market in Chilliwack, and hopes to cinch a deal with two other interested farms before going into production.

“We have the benefit of having all this produce fresh and nearby,” he says. “We figured this was the perfect way to give back to the city— highlighting that they were made in Chilliwack by working with people in Chilliwack.” Kim is quick to thank the support he’s received from the City of Chilliwack; members of city council were present at Kuro’s grand opening two years ago, and have helped Kim get the training he needs along the way.

And with Hana Sushi closed this spring after sustaining damage from a nearby fire, the Kims are looking to expand into Vancouver—bringing a taste of Chilliwack to the big city, and keeping the mandate of made-in-Chilliwack close to the heart. “I think it is very important, not just for myself but for anyone, to highlight the importance of Chilliwack as a city and all the positive contributions it is making,” Kim says. “For me, personally, and for our family, it is something that we have been building since we moved to Canada in 1994.”

Movie magic makes registers ring BY FIENY VAN DEN BOOM Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce

T

O

h boy! What excitement there was last week in downtown Chilliwack. This movie business was absolutely amazing and with the Chamber office being right at Five Corners, we had front-row seats. It was pretty cool to see “normal” trucks chasing after the “possessed” monster truck through our downtown Chilliwack streets. This was all extremely well orchestrated and the film crew was very accommodating. Until you get to look behind the scenes (which I did), you don’t realize what it takes to shoot a movie like this. There are so many people involved and logistics must be a nightmare; this obviously takes great organizational skills. This was the largest film production that has ever come to town and what a boost for our local economy. All the hotels were full, and money was spent at our downtown stores. During the eight days of filming they supported our economy with about $500,000. All businesses in the downtown area were open for business during filming and it was really busy all around the set. I’ve heard about the positive economic impact from several merchants. Even though it was an inconvenience due to the temporary road closures during this event, if you look at the bigger picture (lit-

Big movies like this become part of our unique history and will draw people to town for sure. It might attract even more film crews when they see what

a beautiful place this is. What a wonderful opportunity to let our downtown shine. We have everything here from our historic downtown, heritage buildings, Fraser and Vedder River, all nestled in the beautiful mountains that are all around us.

In addition to our beauty, let’s continue to be known as a place that welcomes these beneficial films and film crews into our city. ◗ Fieny van den Boom is the executive director of the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce.

he Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce will be representing the views of local businesses at the BC Chamber of Commerce Annual General Meeting and Conference, May 22 to 24 in Richmond. “We’ll be attending this event to make sure our local businesses’ views are heard and understood at the provincial level, and that our local needs help drive the BC Chamber’s policy and advocacy agenda,” said Fieny van den Boom, executive director of the Chilliwack Chamber. The BC Chamber of Commerce Annual General Meeting and Conference is held in a different B.C. community each year. The event is the largest annual business policy-building forum in the province. Every year, member Chambers of the BC Chamber develop and submit policies for the consideration of their peers. This year, 45 policies have been forward and will be voted on at the AGM policy sessions. Each policy must receive two-thirds of votes to pass. If the policy passes, it will become official BC Chamber policy, and the BC Chamber will advocate it to appropriate tiers of government. “We will take stands on the proposed policies, based on what our community needs,” said van den Boom. “We are proud to be going to the BC Chamber AGM, to enable our community to actively shape business advocacy in B.C.”

› Chamber Voice

Incinerator bad news for Chilliwack BY KIRK DZAMAN Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce

W

aste management is once again a hot topic. The Chilliwack Chamber has been a consistent supporter of Metro Vancouver’s goals to reduce the amount of waste requiring disposal. However, there is significant concern over proposed Bylaw 280 due to the effects it could have on Chilliwack directly. As you all know, Metro Vancouver wants to build a second garbage incinerator to generate energy. However, what many may not realize is that they need to make certain rules in order to make the project financially viable; this is where Bylaw 280 comes in. Air quality is the most urgent concern to Chilliwack, but even with the air quality issue aside; Bylaw 280 will establish a Metro Vancouver monopoly on garbage. This will completely eliminate the private sector competition, and undermine private business, including those who would establish much-needed Mixed Waste Materials Recovery Facilities. Without creating a monopoly on garbage, Metro Vancouver would not be able to secure a steady waste stream to pay for their new

$517,000,000 garbage burner. The FVRD has put together a Solid Waste Management Plan that promotes recycling before incineration. This plan is intelligently and economically designed to extract every last resource possible from the waste stream by filtering unsorted garbage. This is called Advanced Materials Recovery and it ensures these valuable resources are recovered and either reused, recycled, or composted instead of being burned. Again, the immediate concern for Chilliwack is air quality. During the summer months in Chilliwack, visual air quality is noticeably worse than the rest of the year. The airshed in Chilliwack is confined because air pushing from the west (i.e. Metro-Vancouver) becomes trapped in the valley by the surrounding mountains. As a result, the air we breathe in Chilliwack is vulnerable to the build-up of contaminants. Allowing Metro-Vancouver to move forward on Bylaw 280 and burning garbage will likely lead to the increase of contaminants in our air. We need to act proactively to reduce potential impacts on human health, visual air quality, the environment, and even the local economy. Will you enjoy a nice summer eve-

ning outside, knowing that you are breathing air contaminants? Large employers often research quality of life in areas they choose to invest, build and employ many people. Will these businesses continue to come to Chilliwack when the air quality is certain to deteriorate? Will people move away from Chilliwack to areas where the air is cleaner? These are all very valid concerns, so now is the time to stand up for ourselves and tell Minister Polak what we think of all this. The Chilliwack Chamber will host a meeting for everyone to attend where Jessica Morrison, the Environmental Services Coordinator from FVRD will give a presentation that explains what the potential impacts of a garbage incinerator in Metro Vancouver for the Chilliwack area will be, and why we need to say NO to Bylaw 280 and the incinerator! We would like to invite you on Monday, June 2 to Vineyard Community Centre, 45873 Wellington Ave., Chilliwack. Doors open at 5 p.m., presentation starts at 5:30 p.m. Letters to the Minister of Environment will be on hand for you to sign if you so choose. ◗ Kirk Dzaman is the president of the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce.

CHILLIWACK TIMES

Officials are concerned { VACCINATION, from page A1 } Adventist Christian (this latter school had fewer than 10 Kindergarten students). And while 11 out of 29 elementary schools had rates of 90 per cent, a further six had rates in the high 80s. Areas of the Lower Mainland with relatively low coverage include the Tri Cities, Maple Ridge/Pitt Meadows, Surrey, the Sunshine Coast and parts of the Fraser Valley and North Shore. Vaccination rates in Vancouver and Richmond are generally higher. Most of the schools with lower rates of measles vaccination are within the Fraser health region, which extends from Burnaby east to Hope. The fact that so many schools are falling short of the 90-per-cent target is a concern for public health officials, said Dr. Michelle Murti, a medical health officer at Fraser Health. “Even before the (measles) outbreak, we have been concerned about our immunization levels,” she said. Mt. Cheam Christian is connected to the Reformed Congregation of North America in Chilliwack, which is closely tied to the ultra-orthodox Netherlands Reformed Congregation in Holland, which has been vulnerable to infectious diseases ranging from polio in the 1970s and mumps in 2008, to whooping cough two years ago. “This is a community with a belief system against vaccination,” Fraser Health Authority’s (FHA) chief medical health officer Dr. Paul Van Buynder told the Times in March. Its members reject vaccination on the grounds that immunizing their children challenges the will of God. Half of all Lower Mainland elementary schools have rates that meet the 90-per-cent threshold.

Starlight ‘brightens’ lives in dark times BY DESSA BAYROCK Special to the Times

W

hen the Starlight Foundation and the Children’s Organ Transplant Society (COTS) started the search for an ambassador to help host their third annual fundraising golf tournament, Chiliwack native Ian Sewell was a natural choice. He’s been healthy since his liver transplant three years ago, and is a plucky young man who never gave up hope—the perfect face for both organizations. Plus he just got brand-new golf clubs for his fourth birthday. Ian had his first major surgery at just eight weeks old. He suffered from a rare liver disease called biliary atresia, in which the liver is unable to drain bile properly. “Where most babies are jaundiced for a few weeks, Ian was jaundiced for a lot longer,” says mom Amanda Sewell. “He was a pale clay colour.” After an unsuccessful surgery to attach the liver to the small intestine, which doctors hoped would help drain the bile, Ian’s only hope was a liver transplant. “Ian would not be here today if it weren’t for our donor family who made the most difficult decision during their worst time in life—losing their child,” Amanda says. “Not a day goes by that we don’t think of them. It is a hard

families they serve. It was a logical step to organize the golf tournament fundraiser together. And, now a healthy fouryear-old, Ian will be one of the ambassadors hosting it. He’s a little young to understand what it means, but Amanda knows it’s a way for him to have fun and give back. “Most people looking at him wouldn’t realize everything he’s gone through,” She says with a smile. “He’s eager to get out there and have some fun.” T h e f u n d ra i s e r i s a l s o a reminder that, even after a successful transplant, recipients face a lifetime of constant medical care. “Transplants are not cures, they’re just treatments,” Amanda says. “There’s no guarantee they’ll sustain children into adulthood.” ◗ The Children’s Charity Classic Golf Tournament takes place May 22 at Quilchena Golf & Country Club in Richmond.

Flocking to specialty markets Duck and goose farm rebrands as unique product market grows

Roast Duck This will feed four modest eaters or two gluttons. Ken Falk at Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry provided me with a whole, grade ‘A’ Pekin duck. This is a recipe I cobbled together from Jamie Oliver, TheHungryMouse.com, and other cooking sites online Ingredients: 1 3 kg duck 1 orange sliced ginger kale onions potatoes carrots celery

BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

I

n one part of town, they hang on rustic cast-iron hooks in Chinatown windows, meat bulging against taut skin that glistens with a sugary glaze. In another, they arrive roasted on large plates atop white tablecloths topped with pan-seared foie gras and apple cider reductions. The former in Richmond or Vancouver’s Chinatown. The latter at high-end downtown French restaurant Le Crocodile. So what do the two have in common? From egg to processing, the duck served at just about every Asian restaurant or high-end eatery in British Columbia comes from Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry in Yarrow. Renowned for their duck and goose products, the family-run operation also sells Taiwan chicken and have just started with organic chicken under the Yarrow Meadow brand. They do so much chicken, and have had such an upsurge in people who want to buy direct, that the business once known as Fraser Valley Duck and Goose have rebranded and are building a new storefront on site. “It’s time to regain contact with where our food comes from,” president and general manager Ken Falk tells me. “People want to know what they are eating. They want to talk to the farmer.” Urban living and grocery store buying has led generations of people to lose touch with food production. Falk is on the front lines of the resurgence in interest. “It’s fantastic,” he says. “We lost our way and we have found it again. We are teaching our kids that these food products that we buy at Safeway, they don’t actually come from Safeway. They are actually grown on a farm somewhere.”

recipe

Paul J. Henderson/TIMES

Roasting a duck makes for a delicious meal and is remarkably hard to mess up.

Paul J. Henderson/TIMES

Ken Falk shows off a duck and a goose at the recently rebranded Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry in Yarrow. Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry started as Fraser Valley Duck and Goose in the early 1970s by Peter Zillian. The business grew and a small processing plant was put in. Falk was a third-generation farmer and a builder by trade and did some work for the Zillian family in 1989. Nine years later Zillian asked Falk if he wanted to buy the business. “So in 1998 my siblings and my family, we exited the table egg business and we entered the duck business,” he said. Things stayed small and rans smoothly until the disastrous avian influenza crisis of 2004. “Every bird on all of our operations were killed in one day,” Falk said. “It was very hard to come back from that. And government was no help really.”

Outside the supply management world of most poultry producers, Falk’s operation was left with no safety net. And as a vertically integrated operation — from hatched egg to process bird — it took more than a year to ramp up production again. Now Fraser Valley Specialty poultry is the largest duck producer in B.C., a fact that Falk doesn’t brag about because on a global scale they “are a blip.” But they also are the only ones producing goose. They are only one of three producing Taiwan chicken. And they are as big as any squab producer in B.C. Behind Rainbow Greenhouses, Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry, with just under 100 employees, is the second largest agriculture employer in Chilliwack, according to CEPCO. Two of those employees are 6346774

Some choices are hard.

continuing the family tradition in the business. Ken’s son Joe is operations manager, and Joe’s son Josh “is determined he is going to be a farmer like his dad one day.” Serving the Asian marketplace has led Falk to learn about some interesting cuisine. They sell squab, which is simply a young pigeon. There is the Taiwan chicken, which is a Leghorn chicken prepared complete with feet and head on. You can also buy duck tongue and gizzads. But most unique is the balut, a popular street food in the Philippines and in southeast Asia. A duck egg takes 28 days to hatch. Balut is the developing duck embryo taken out of the incubator between 17 and 19 days. They are boiled, opened up and eaten with salt or hot sauce. “I’ve never tried it,” Falk said. “Probably never will, but we do sell lots. “There is a large Philippine community in Vancouver and the Fraser Valley and these are foods that they enjoy. They are excited they can get them here.” Fraser Valley Specialty Poultry storefront is currently little more than a few coolers that office staff help customers with off the side of their desks. The increase in interest in their unique products, coupled with the broader desire consumers have to purchase direct from the farm is what led to the store expansion. Stay tuned for a grand opening in the coming weeks and, in the meantime, check out www.fvdg. com for details and to plan a visit.

Rub: 2 garlic cloves rind of one orange 1 tbsp of salt 1 tbsp of Chinese five-spice powder 1 tbsp coriander seeds pepper Glaze: 1/2 cup molasses sesame oil soy sauce Directions: 1. In a mortar and pestle, grind rub ingredients into a paste. Trim excess fat off duck, but don’t discard this; render it down and save the fat for roasting potatoes. Score the duck skin in a cross-hatch pattern all over, being sure not to cut into the meat. Spread one-third of rub inside the duck and the rest all over the skin. Let sit refrigerated for a few hours, up to one day. 2. Pre-heat your oven to 325 C. Create a bed in the roasting pan with vegetables so it is tight to the sides and a couple inches deep. This serves three purposes: to flavour the duck, to keep the duck elevated off the bottom of the pan, and as a side dish. 3. Plop the duck on the veggies, stick half the orange and the ginger slices inside, truss up the legs and put in the oven, uncovered. After 45 minutes, flip it breast side down and cook for another 45 minutes. Then another 45 minutes up and another 45 minutes down. Every time you flip the duck be sure to poke the fat with a knife all over trying not to cut into the meat. You may have to drain off the duck fat once or twice from the pan during cooking. 4. The bird has now been in the oven for 3 hours and should be totally cooked, nice and brown all over. But it’s going to get better. Take it out, check with a meat thermometer in the thickest part of the thigh that it’s 165 C. Whisk up your glaze and brush all over the duck. 5. Turn oven up to 400 C, put duck back in, roast for 5 to 10 minutes more keeping a close eye so that it doesn’t burn. When the skin is nice and crispy, you’re done. 6. Carve and serve with veggies as a side dish.

Some are easy.

Q. A.

OPEN TUE-SAT

604-870-8856

How can I get rid of it? Chlorine can be removed several ways...boiling the water is one way but tedious. Evaporation works but takes time, distillation is another method. The easiest way is with filtration.

Andy VanEsch AJ Pumps

Q. A.

Can I just put a filter on my tap? The filter can go on your whole house or individual taps or on your jug of water.

Q. A.

But don’t I have to change filters all the time? Filters only absorb so much then they have to be changed. With our systems the average home changes once a year. (depending on chlorine concentration and amount of water used)

Q. A.

What about a permanent set-up under my sink. Is it expensive? Filtration can be installed at point of use under the sink with a separate tap or can be connected to your existing tap. Do-ityourself kits are about $125. Installed its about $225.

Q. A.

My whole house smells of chlorine, especially after showering? If you don’t like showering or brushing your teeth with chlorine a whole house filter can be installed. Surprisingly this does not cost much more than filtering just your sink. The advantage to this is that if your house is on a septic field you do not neutralize the bacteria in the field. We find the average home is only about $500 installed.

Chlorine is here to stay...you do not have to get used to it or learn to live with it. It can be effectively removed at a relatively low cost. Andy.

A riding mower’s cutting deck is in front, while a lawn or gardening tractor’s cutting deck is mid-mounted, which is how they differ. Lawn tractors also may be able to accept other landscaping attachments. A riding mower is more maneuverable than a tractor, particularly for landscapes that may have trees or planting beds. Cost is the one thing that may deter some homeowners from a riding mower. While a walk-behind mower could cost anywhere from a few hundred dollars and up, riding mowers generally start at $1,000 and may be as much as $10,000, depending on the extra features, like cruise control and cup holders. However, some find that what riding mowers lack in affordability, they make up for in convenience. Plus buying a riding mower may pay for itself in savings on landscaping services over the course of one to two seasons. As with any lawn tool, it’s important to note that riding mowers are not toys and they should not be handled by children, nor should children be allowed to ride along while mowing.

omeowners love extensive, lush green lawns. But the elbow grease that goes into tending to the landscape is far less beloved. One task that routinely causes bouts of procrastination is mowing the lawn. But riding mowers can change the way homeowners view mowing the lawn. Traditionally, mowing the lawn has been a task largely handled by homeowners pushing walk-behind mowers. Whether these mowers were powered by gasoline, electricity or simply human power, they were the type of mower that was generally the most popular and most affordable. Individuals had different features they could consider in their mowers, including horsepower and the size of the deck. There were also mowers that could bag or mulch. Despite these features, homeowners with a particularly large back or front yard—or both—may have found lawn mowing to be tedious work. Those who have yards of almost an acre or more often find riding mowers to be an efficient method of mowing the lawn, and one that also does not require as much effort out in the sun.

atios, decks and outdoor entertaining areas often need some TLC. Homeowners looking forward to enjoying the warm air again often start their annual chore of readying such areas for the entertaining season in the spring, and cleaning outdoor furniture and entertaining areas is a big part of that process. Very often individuals turn to pressure washing machines to clean such areas; while pressure and power washers are effective, they also can be dangerous if homeowners don’t prioritize safety when operating these machines. Pressure washing machines come in many varieties, and not all are created equal. Smaller, electric-powered systems may be effective for cars and boats but ineffective at cleaning grime on a house or driveway. Pressure washers also may have hot or cold water supplies. Hot water can help cleaning detergents emulsify dirt faster and more effectively than cold water. The cleaning capacity of these machines is measured in cleaning units—or the water pressure multi-

plied by the flow rate. The higher the cleaning units, the greater the cleaning power of the device. But more powerful tools also carry a greater safety risk, highlighting the importance users must place on safety when operating such machines. The following are a few safety tips homeowners can employ to ensure their next power washing project goes off without a hitch. ◗ Clear away furniture and any obstacles from the area where you will be cleaning. You want the area to be free of tripping hazards or items that can be damaged by the spray. ◗ Keep children and pets away from the area while the cleaning is taking place. Pressure washers are powerful, and highly pressurized water spray can cause injuries. Slips and falls on wet surfaces may occur, and high-pressure injection can happen when water and chemicals

tleties of the machine, so users should allow themselves ample time to grow comfortable with the machine. ◗ Keep the pressure wand 10 to 12 inches away from the surface that needs cleaning. Make small passes and check the cleaned area, adjusting the pressure and stream accordingly. ◗ Begin in the farthest corner of a deck, driveway or patio and the highest spot of a home. Use slow, even sweeps with the pressure wand, being careful to maintain an equal distance from the tip to the work surface. This helps to ensure even cleaning and reduces the chances of streaks and overlapping of the pressure spray. ◗ When working on a home, avoid spraying the water at a steep angle under siding or directly into corners. Do not spray under the edges of window or doors. Use caution around dryer and attic vents as well. You may end up soaking the inside of the home or cause water damage unwittingly. ◗ Always use caution when operating a pressure washer while on a ladder. The power of the device can easily compromise your balance.

Certain medical conditions can be detected early during routine eye examinations.

What your eyes can tell doctors Allergies

Patients may be referred to an allergy specialist if they exhibit dark under-eye circles. While this can be a sign of aging, dark circles, sometimes referred to as “allergic shiners,” also may indicate certain allergies. When clogged sinuses cause a blockage of blood flow in the nasal passages around the eye, darkness may result. This symptom in conjunction with persistent nasal congestion could be a sure sign of allergies.

High cholesterol

The presence of bumpy, yellowish patches on the eyelid, known as xanthelasma palpebra, is a warning sign of high cholesterol, which is often initially diagnosed during a routine eye exam.

Cancer

Some cancer metastases can be detected during an eye exam. The presence of a bump or brown spot on the eyelid also may be indicative of skin cancer. Many malignant eyelid tumors are bas-

al-cell carcinoma. If the spot is brown, it’s more likely to be malignant melanoma.

Thyroid issues

When the outer one-third of the brow (the part closest to the ear) begins to disappear on its own, this is a common sign of thyroid disease. The thyroid helps regulate metabolism, and thyroid hormones are essential to hair production. Hair loss may occur elsewhere, but is much more visible in the brows.

Clogged arteries

Blockages in the smaller veins in the retina may indicate clogs caused by arterial plaque. This will show up as a retinal occlusion in a visual exam. If blood vessels in the eyes are blocked, clogged arteries may be present elsewhere in the body, so a cardiology workup may be ordered.

Most patients resume their normal activities the next day.

Bell’s palsy

The inability to close one eye or to control tear production in that eye may be a sign of Bell’s palsy. This is a condition of the nervous system that controls facial muscles, causing temporary paralysis in one side of the face. Sometimes Bell’s palsy follows a viral or bacterial infection.

P

eople who have been putting off eye examinations may want to call their opthalmologists to schedule an appointment. That’s because vision checkups can do more than protect your eyes. By examining the eyes, doctors may have a window into health problems affecting other areas of the body. Researchers recently discovered a link between detected retinal amyloid plaques and the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. While evidence was found in lab mice, autopsies of at least eight Alzheimer’s disease patients have also shown amyloid plaques, which are known to interfere with memory and other mental functions, present in the retinas. Doctors at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, Calif., are gearing up for larger studies of humans to determine if an Alzheimer’s imaging technique can be perfected. Dementia is not the only thing that doctors may be able to detect through an eye exam. Jaundice in the whites of the eyes may indicate liver disease, and early warning signs of diabetes may be detectable in the eyes. The American Academy of Opthalmology says the eye is the only place where doctors can see veins, arteries and a nerve with-

ballerina before, and that’s why I like the body, or the legs.”

D

owntown Chilliwack is just a little bit more artistic for the next five weeks. Celebration of the Arts, a cross-medium exhibit, opened recently at the Royal Hotel and Cafe on Wellington Avenue. It includes the work of myriad local artists—including woodturners, sculptors, metalworkers, painters and photographers. While their mediums may have little in common, they come together under the banner of Chilliwack Visual Artists Association. The members range from hobbyist to professional, but matter where they fall on that scale, members benefit from the community aspect of the organization. “it’s a nice way to meet other artists who do things differently, and we all kind of blend together,” says member Anne Pradine. “It always keeps growing, as art should.” Pradine works with wire art, shaping wire, foil and cotton fabric into shapes before dipping it into a material that seals and waterproofs it. The resulting sculptures have the flow of fabric but the stiffness of metal. Two of her pieces are on display in the exhibit, including “Sisters Shopping on Wellington.” “The idea is it’s two sisters who try to out-dress each other when they go for lunch,” Pradine says with a broad smile, pointing to two figures swathed in shimmering material and modelling matching miniature hats. On the other end of the spectrum of fabric and wire, Sylvie Roussel-Janssens’ additions to the show are all light and air. Hanging in the windows of the cafe and the hotel lobby, they look like stained glass—but the panels are actu-

In a process Roussel-Janssens calls “fabric-burning,” she melts a precise pattern of close-set holes into the material with a soldering iron, fusing in images photocopied onto acetate. Just one 10” by 10” panel, she says, takes her up to an hour-and-a-half to complete. She’s trained as a sculptor, and started playing around with the process after a particularly frustrating sewing project. “I was using a chiffon fabric, it was fraying, and it was a disaster,” she says with a wry grin. “Out of frustration, I ran into my welding shop and used a soldering iron to seal all the edges.” That was a decade ago; in the years since, the resulting art has been shown in a variety of galleries, including a current exhibit in Coquitlam’s Evergreen

Cultural Centre. The natural valley landscape features heavily in her work. She lives on the bottom edge of Chilliwack mountain, and uses the flora and fauna around her for inspiration. “I love the coastal environment. Most of my trees are B.C. trees,” she says, pointing to a piece featuring a beech tree she modelled after one in her backyard. Paul McCarl also turns to local nature for inspiration, although as a stone carver he turns to the mountains and the earth more than the trees. “Bear Cub in Devil’s Club” is one of two works of his featured in the exhibit, and it came from a boulder he quarried himself by the Skagit River. “The finished piece is just over 80 pounds,” he explains. “It was probably 250-300 pounds before I started to

carve the outside to get at it. I’ve always had a lot of patience.” He’s been putting tools to stone for 25 years, and carving since he was seven. After he retired from the RCMP, he’s found a lot more time to put towards his craft. Both of his pieces in the show depict bears, and most of his work focuses on wildlife—from cougars to fish to birds. “The smallest pieces I’ve made weigh less than a pound, and the largest piece I’ve worked on—it’s almost finished—is a nine-ton Grizzly bear. It’s taken about 1,200 hours to get where it is now,” he says. With any luck, he hopes to wrap up the years-long project soon—although he has yet to begin the herculean task of carving its hair. A variety of sculptures dot the exhibit, hanging on walls or set up on plinths, and the show includes a

plethora of painting and photography as well. Michaela Stefan began painting seven years ago when she was diagnosed with cancer. Her painting, “Rendezvous,” is painted with sharp lines and bold colours, depicting a chic red-headed woman sitting on a patio with a glass of wine. It’s part of a 13 painting collection, which shows the red-headed woman in a variety of scenarios—doing the tango, holding an umbrella in the rain, and out for a quick drink. “In this collection I have never put a facial expression—eyes, mouth or nose —because I want every woman to put her face in this kind of rendezvous,” she says. She points to the woman’s legs, crossed gracefully to one side. “I was a classical ballerina before, and that’s why I like the body, or the legs,” she explains. “Ballet has a very big influence in my paintings.” This yearly exhibit is a chance to catch a taste of a huge variety of work without straying too far from home. The name says it all: it really is a celebration of the arts. ◗ The exhibit runs until June 8, and the gallery is open at 8 a.m every day, closing at 3 p.m. on Sunday through Tuesday at 8 p.m. from Wednesday to Saturday in the Royal Hotel and Cafe at 5886 Wellington Ave. in downtown Chilliwack.

Homecoming queen: Bria Skonberg and her trumpet return “I’ve been able to have a lot of neat experiences all over the world, so it means a lot to be able to come back and share those during the concert.”

BY DESSA BAYROCK Special to the Times

“M

usic is a volatile industry. It’s hard to put all your eggs in a basket when you’re not sure where it is you’re going,” says Bria Skonberg. But it is just a little bit easier when you know where you’re from. The award-winning trumpet player has called New York home since 2010, but her journey started right here in the Fraser Valley. It started with band class at Chilliwack Middle School. It started when she walked into Chilliwack’s Dixieland Jazz Festival for the first time. It started with a moment in a Capilano College practice room where she decided, once and for all, that music was her life. “I was just banging my head against the wall for so many hours that I just looked at the trumpet and I said, ‘Alright. You know what? You and me. Let’s do this,’” Skonberg says. “I committed.” And now Chilliwack’s prodigal daughter is returning home. In the last month alone, she co-produced the New York Hot Jazz Festival and released her third album, titled Into Your Own. A hometown concert—with the backing of a symphony orchestra, no less—provides the perfect ending to the month of May. She’ll be at Chilliwack Alliance Church on May 31, performing with the Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra.

- Bria Skonberg

Bria Skonberg puts a new twist on a classic style with the Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra this month, combining classical with jazz and pop sensibilities for a musical fusion. “It’s wonderful! There’s no place like home,” she says. “I’ve been able to have a lot of neat experiences all over the world, so it means a lot to be able to come back and share those during the concert.” Growing up in the Chilliwack jazz scene gave her all the tools she needed to succeed in New

York. She credits her middle school band teacher, Bruno Gagnon, with teaching her to be ambitious and think big. She thanks long-time Chilliwack Secondary School music teacher Gary Raddysh for cultivating her love of jazz.

And Chilliwack Jazz Festival director Rob Hopkins and CSS Leadership teacher Steve Anderson supplied her with all the tools she needed to create a jazz festival from the ground up. “Moving to New York, I’ve been able to bring those tools forward,” Skonberg says. “They had such a big impact on me, not just in the way they make music but also putting on events.” And now Chilliwack is offering her another new experience—her first chance to perform as a soloist for an orchestra. They’ll be playing a couple of tunes from her new album, giving the music— and the orchestra—a completely different feel. “It’s rooted in jazz,” she says, “but also it’s a fusion of a little bit of world music, percussion, and some more kind of pop sensibilities.” ◗ Skonberg plays with the Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra at the Chilliwack Alliance Church on May 31 at 7:30 p.m. General tickets are $25 and student tickets are $15, available through the Chilliwack Cultural Centre box office at 604-391-7469 or online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca.

IN MEMORIAM GIFTS

HOYT, Frederick (Ted) Tupper Nov 11, 1936 - May 9, 2014 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Ted after a brief battle with Cancer. Born in Middleton, Nova Scotia, Ted served in the Armed Forces as a radio tech which took him all over the world, settling in Chilliwack in 1980. He is survived by his loving wife Violet, daughters Charlene, Christine, Jennifer (Marcel) and son Tony along with grandchildren Justin, Janine, Marc and niece Sandra. He was an avid lover of dogs and taught dog obedience classes for nearly two decades. Heavily involved in the community, Ted was rewarded for his volunteer service. His legacy is his joy for life and capacity for unconditional love. Memorial service to be held Thursday May 22nd at 2:30pm at the Chilliwack Alliance Church 8700 Young Rd., Chwk, B.C.

magazine. Wanting a change of pace from big city life, Karen took a position as editor of a newspaper in Grand Forks, B.C. and later worked with CIBC as a personal banker. She then moved to Chilliwack, B.C., where she worked for the University of the Fraser Valley before returning to Saskatoon for positions at the University of Saskatchewan and the Water Security Agency.

Karen was born in Calgary on July 8, 1961 and spent her formative years in Saskatoon. She obtained a B.A. in French at the University of Saskatchewan and later received a degree in journalism from Ryerson University in Toronto. Following graduation, Karen’s work life in Toronto included working in marketing and communications for Ariad Communications and writing for Air Canada’s En Route

Throughout her painful illness, Karen never lost her sense of humour or her lifelong lust for adventure that had previously taken her around the globe. In the eighteen months of her illness, Karen continued to travel and create precious memorable experiences for those fortunate to have been part of her life at that time, and she spent the better part of her last two winters in her cozy little casa in Mesa, Arizona where she welcomed numerous visits from friends and family and fostered dogs. She was a friend to “Anipals” everywhere. In lieu of flowers, please donate to a fund in Karen’s memory: Lucky Dog Rescue Inc., 4400 N. Scottsdale Rd., Ste. 9-319, Scottsdale, Arizona, 85251 (480-7044628), or online at https://fundrazr.com/campaigns/4kOb1.

EMPLOYMENT/EDUCATION

August 20, 1922- May 18, 2014 Ethel will be sadly missed by her sister, Chrissy McKenzie, her three daughters, Simone Rolph, Terrie Rolph and Leslie Ross (nee Rolph); her grand children, Michel, Justin and Jodie; her living nieces and nephews, June, Gail, Alan, Maureen and Kathy; and other close relatives. Ethel grew up in Newton, B.C on a small goat farm. She was the daughter of Albert and Dorothy Hanson. She was one of a family of four children, consisting of Helen, Roy, Chrissy and Ethel. Helen, her daughter Pat, and Roy as well as Roy’s son, Arden, predeceased Ethel. Ethel is survived by her sister, Chrissy McKenzie. She was very much a “people person” and always endeavored to help others, especially those whom she perceived to be underprivileged, unappreciated or ignored. In a uniquely polite, but firm manner she was always very capable of standing up for the rights of people and for the humane treatment of animals and was certainly never afraid to speak her mind on important issues that concerned her. Ethel was also a very professional, intelligent person who was unerringly successful at numerous business ventures, and very successful later, as a popular Ward Clerk at Shaughnessy Hospital, and finally, as a Canada Customs Agent responsible for border inspection at Vancouver International Airport and cruise ship inspection at Richmond, B.C. Ethel really enjoyed working as a customs agent and became so successful at drug and gem smuggling arrests that she became respectfully known as the “Seizure Queen”. Ethel passed away quite peacefully early Sunday evening, May 18, 2014 with her eldest daughter, Leslie, and her granddaughter, Jodie, at her bedside. Along with all of her surviving relatives who feel such sadness at her passing, Ethel will also be fondly remembered and missed by the many friends, coworkers and people who were privileged to know her and to be blessed by her wry humor, wit and wisdom. 6505654
