District eyes boundary changes

„ C ELEBRATING J ULIE ’ S

Parents voice concerns Katie Bartel The Progress Students living in Yarrow may soon be switching middle schools. Chilliwack school district is holding a public meeting today (Tuesday, Feb. 8) to discuss a proposed boundary change that would have Yarrow students attending Mt. Slesse middle school instead of Vedder middle, where they currently are. The proposed change is meant to alleviate the pressures of increased enrollment and overcrowding at Vedder middle, as well as to keep Mt. Slesse middle viable. Currently Vedder middle has 652 students with a capacity for 600, while Mt. Slesse has 501 students and a capacity for 650. Mt. Slesse’s population is expected to decline over the next five years as the school didn’t get the boost in enrollment that was projected with the Garrison Crossing and Webster’s Landing developments. “The growth pattern was that it would grow and in fact it hasn’t,” said district superintendent Corinne McCabe. “We’re looking at how we can maintain the Mt. Slesse population and Vedder population at a more equal balance, and also at how we can create a better natural connection for the kids at Yarrow.” Approximately 35 to 40 students would be affected by the change. “It’s not a huge number but it’s enough to keep Mt. Slesse at that critical number of 500 students ... until the growth comes in,” said McCabe. Projections show that even with the students from Yarrow, Mt. Slesse would still stay under its total capacity for at least 10 to 15 more years. If passed, the boundary change would be effective starting September 2011. Inge Friedenstab, president of the Yarrow elementary Parent Advisory Council, said that while she’s not concerned with the proposed change as her oldest child will just be entering middle school next year, she has heard some parental concerns.

More than 20 members of the Spirit Abreast dragon boat team, all breast cancer survivors, line up to place flowers in a vase and light candles during the Celebration of Life for fellow paddler Julie Houlker at the Best Western on Saturday. Houlker passed away on Jan. 21 after fighting three different forms of breast cancer in the past 15 years. She was one also of three local authors who wrote the book Choosing to Smile.

No role in gravel monitoring: mayor Robert Freeman The Progress Did Chilliwack city officials turn a blind eye to permit violations at a Vedder Mountain gravel pit where “over-mining” led to increased fees the city received under its gravel removal bylaw? That’s the question raised by the Vedder Mountain Preservation Group, whose earlier research unearthed permit violations at the site that led to a brief stop-work order issued

in January by the B.C. mines ministry. “Someone in the city knew, or should have known, they were receiving money far beyond the permit, and to just let it happen creates a moral dilemma,” charged Victor Froese, a spokesman for the group. But Mayor Sharon Gaetz replied to the charge Wednesday saying the city “has neither the authority, nor the resources to enforce regulations enacted” by the ministry. “I can understand the frustration that local residents are

feeling on this matter, but once again, I must re-iterate that this falls under provincial jurisdiction,” she said. “As per practice, we would only monitor activities related to our own bylaws.” Gaetz said in an earlier interview that until recently the city was unaware of the gravel pit’s permit limits. But Froese contends that a covenant between the city and the gravel pit owner compels the city to ensure the quarry is operating “in compliance with any permits issued” by the ministry.

“The city does have a responsibility to monitor the extraction, and the payments (removal fees) that go with it should be questioned,” he said. According to city records obtained by the Vedder Mountain group, gravel removals at the site in 2008 exceeded the permit level by 233 per cent, netting the city an estimated $118,232 in fees, twice the $50,830 expected. “Are we to believe (the city’s) accounting department would not notice this?” Froese asked.

Contact Centre proposal coming for rezoning Jennifer Feinberg The Progress The health contact centre proposal is ready to be introduced at city hall. A rezoning application for the proposed new Chilliwack Health Contact Centre is expected to go on the agenda for next Tuesday’s council meeting. A property at Young Road and Hocking Avenue was purchased recently by BC Housing and the former Days Inn site will be renovated to create a unique facility to house the city’s most at-risk homeless and addicted populations. If the rezoning receives approval by city council for introduction and first reading on Feb. 15, a public hearing will be scheduled for March 1 to consider the rezoning from tourist commercial to a one-of-a-kind zoning designation, R9, for a Supportive Housing and Health Contact Centre Zone. A multiple-stakeholder committee has been passionately lobbying governments, working out a business plan and setting up a viable operating structure for the contact centre for the past four years. Partners include the city, Fraser Health, BC Housing, Pacific Community Resource Society, and more. Proponents don’t expect the

Farmer to argue raw milk a right Jeff Nagel Black Press A new legal front has been opened by advocates battling for the right to drink and distribute raw milk. Farmer Alice Jongerden, the founder of Chilliwackbased Home On The Range cow-sharing co-op, is mounting a constitutional challenge of a 2010 court order that bars her from producing or distributing unpasteurized milk, which B.C. law deems a public health hazard. “We want the freedom to make our own nutritional choice,” Jongerden said. “We just want to be able to have the right to consume fresh milk if we so desire.” Her court challenge argues the prohibition against unpasteurized milk in B.C. is a violation of her right to liberty and security of the person under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms and that the stiff criminal penalties are unjust. Violators can be jailed for three years and fined up to

be established early on, she underlined, and local residents and business people will be encouraged to join the board to actively offer input and participate, as well as to volunteer at the facility. “I want to assure anyone and everyone living near the proposed health contact centre that every effort will be made to ensure our residents understand exactly what the community needs and expects,” she said. The supportive housing project will fill a huge gap in Chilliwack in terms of non-market housing. “We’ll be asking everyone to keep in mind we’re trying to solve some of the biggest social issues facing Chilliwack. We believe we have some leverage to improve lives with this, and surely that’s better than having none at all,” she said. Denis Turco Architect Inc. of Vancouver was selected to design the proposed 2,500 square-foot addition and alterations of the old Days Inn building. The plan calls for 24 individual units of supportive housing, and another 10 spaces in five rooms for transitional housing, in group home format with shared common spaces. “We were careful to ensure the building will have a good community feel and look,” Hanson said. jfeinberg@theprogress.com

Three armed robberies may be work of one suspect, say RCMP A black male in a dark red station wagon is believed responsible for two armed robberies in one hour Saturday night. And may be the same man who robbed the Ramada Inn on the North Parallel Road on Sunday at about about 11:20 p.m. Chilliwack RCMP and Abbotsford Police are working together to identify the suspect. Chilliwack RCMP were called to the Parkwood Motor Lodge on Young Street at about 10:05 p.m., Saturday and about 50 minutes later to the Popkum Esso on Yale Road East by reports of armed robberies. The suspect is described as about 25-35 years old, 5’10” to six feet tall, with a short black beard and a medium build. At the time of the robberies, he was wearing a darkcoloured zip-up hooded jacket that may have had ‘Vancouver 2010’ written on it. He was also wearing blue jeans and a light-coloured baseball cap. He was seen leaving in a dark red station wagon that was last reported heading toward Hwy 1. On Sunday, the Abbotsford Police were called to the Ramada Inn by a similar robbery. Chilliwack and Agassiz serious crime units are actively investigating the robberies. Anyone with information is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-888-222-TIPS.

Why take on risk if you don’t have to?

Hospital celebration set for Feb. 18

At the start of our relationship, I ask this question of my clients. There is no right or wrong answer, but the individual answer is important. We need to gain insight into two significant constraints around which my client’s portfolio will be tailored:

Jennifer Feinberg

1. What is the minimum return required to achieve your investment goal? 2. Do you have the tolerance for downside volatility in your portfolio? To obtain an in-depth answer to my question, a bit of work is required. First, we need to establish clear investment goals for the portfolio. Secondly, we need to determine if these investment goals are achievable based on initial portfolio valuation, additional contributions and time. Finally, we would be in a position to answer the question regarding risk. There is a clear relationship between risk and return; the higher the risk, the higher the potential for both positive and negative returns. Investors can increase the likelihood of achieving their investment goals by making informed decisions based on a realistic rate of return. If you are fortunate to surpass your projections, it means more money in your pocket. As a Portfolio Manager, I help my clients determine the returns they need to achieve their goals while balancing their actual risk tolerance. I then tailor a portfolio to their individual needs. Contact Paul today for a complimentary portfolio review.

The Progress Here’s a chance to tour the newly renovated sections of the Chilliwack General Hospital and learn something about its expansive hundredyear-old history. A public open house celebrating two major CGH milestones — the $35 million redevelopment and the hospital’s 100th anniversary — is set for Feb. 18 from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. in the brand-new emergency department. Members of the public are invited to tour the modernized facilities and view the specially commissioned artwork created by local aboriginal artists. Artists include Stan Greene, from Skowkale, who has carved a medicine man from red cedar, who is kneeling to gather healing herbs. There are hundreds of healing plants considered sacred and central to indigenous medicine. Artist Francis Horne, from Tsawout and Lummi, submitted a carved panel of a medi-

cine woman and her helpers made out of yellow cedar. Horne noted that women are recognized not only for leadership qualities, counsel and wisdom but also for maternal instinct and natural healing. George Pennier, from Chehalis, created a red cedar spindle whorl. Traditional whorls were carved from stone, shell, bone, and whale vertebrae but wood was the most common material. His piece will feature Coast Salish

symbols including: frog (representing health); salmon (representing the Stó:lo people); a long house (representing a healing place); and will be eight feet in diameter. Bonny Krulicki, from Skwah, has designed five large banners featuring Halkomelem words of healing. Halkomelem is an ancient and spiritual language of the Stó:lo people and the artwork offers a contemporary presentation. Krulicki

has crafted a healing wheel image spotlighting five words: l’haw: to heal, to be healed; aylexw: to live, live well, be well; tamexw: to hope, to have hope; xholmet: to care, to care for someone; and sayem: to be strong.

R AESIDE

Too early to call Keeping track of who supports whom in the provincial leadership races is like watching hockey scores in January. Whether it’s former NDP leader Joy MacPhail endorsing Adrian Dix, or Liberal leadership hopefuls Christy Clark, George Abbott and Kevin Falcon jostling to get people in their corners, political endorsements mean little to us. Unless they are political junkies or voting members of either party, most people are really only interested in how they’ll be personally affected by a new premier and opposition leader. In many ways it seems a fool’s game, this courting of support by candidates and flaunting of endorsements from current and past MLAs, business leaders and other high-profile individuals. But isn’t that one of the key tenets of politics — the creation of relationships that may help the candidate and/or the party/government down the road? It’s not surprising that the six Liberal candidates, four of whom are in cabinet, have made a splash lately upon adding a name to their lists. Unlike the NDP, whose membership deadline has passed, Liberal leadership candidates have until 5 p.m. Friday (Feb. 4) to sign up new members. Doing so enhances their chances of becoming the next premier — a job with much more cachet than opposition leader. We can expect plenty of fireworks over the next few days. Clark has just one endorsement from a current MLA, yet leads the polls among committed party members. She has pulled out the stops, posting a membership deadline clock on her website like some soon-to-expire eBay deal. We’re waiting for playoff time — the Feb. 26 Liberal leadership convention; April 17 for the NDP — when the games actually mean something. ~ Black Press

Whistler dog sled scandal demands answers The Campbell government was right to create a task force to review the circumstances related to the horrendous sled dog slaughter near Whistler by an employee with Howling Dog Tours. Apparently, following a slump in business after the Winter Olympics, the company ordered a ‘cull’ of an excess number of dogs. One hundred were inhumanely shot and dumped in a mass grave last April and the employee subsequently filed a successful compensation for post traumatic stress. “The tragic and disturbing details that have emerged around how these dogs were inhumanely treated are not acceptable to British Columbians or to their government,” said Premier Campbell. “No creature should ever have to suffer in the manner that has been reported, and we want to ensure that nothing like this ever happens

again in our province.” Knowledge of the slaughter has erupted in disgust and outrage across the province and the country. The details of the deaths are disturbingly sickening, so much so that an investigation into animal cruelty has started. “We were first informed of the massacre by Margaret CKNW late Friday, EVANS Januar y 28th 2011,” said Marcie Moriarety, general manager, cruelty investigations with BCSPCA. “At that time, we were provided with a copy of the WorkSafe BC decision that describes in detail the way this employee slaughtered the 100 dogs.” The sickening details have led to questions about the sled dog

industry, the care of the animals and responsibilities with respect to management of dog numbers. The Vancouver Humane Society has called for an outright ban on dog sled tours but that blanket act can hurt those dog sledders who do care for and treat their animals responsibly. Dog sledding, beyond tourist curiosity, has deep cultural connections and a review of responsibilities, regulations and policies that govern, or should govern, the industry is more appropriate. This is what the task force will review and if stiff regulations are required, they should be put in place and enforced. “As a veterinarian, I was shocked and saddened by the description of the terrible treatment these dogs were reported to have been subjected to,” said task force leader Dr. Terry Lake, Kamloops-North Thompson MLA.

It is a slippery slope when animals become a corporate marketing tool. They are a commodity shackled to the company’s bottom line. Once that line shrinks, they or their essential needs can quickly become disposable. “Animals that are used for the entertainment of humans should be provided with the five freedoms that ensure their welfare,” stressed Moriarty. “(They are), namely, freedom from hunger and thirst, freedom from pain, injury and disease, freedom from discomfort, freedom from distress, and freedom to express behaviours that promote well being.” The scale of this case has become a lightning rod in the public recoil against animal cruelty. Moriarty said that the sheer number of dogs involved and the graphic nature of how some of them died makes this a case that stands on its own in the files of

animal cruelty in B.C. She candidly added that the case has been emotionally upsetting for both her and SPCA investigators but what keeps them focused is their dedication to animals and their commitment to seeing the individual/s responsible prosecuted to the full extent of the law. The tragedy has many unanswered questions. Why did the company have so many surplus dogs? Why weren’t they offered for adoption (working dogs, with rehabilitation, can be re-homed)? Where were the checks and balances? Why did WorkSafe BC approve compensation to the employee whose documented inhumane actions caused his trauma? Why weren’t the facts reported to the SPCA earlier? And why, when asked to cull 100 dogs, did the employee not say “No”?

Gas prices prompt suspicion On Wednesday Feb. 2, sometime between 1:30 and 3:00 p.m., the price of gasoline in Chilliwack went from 109.9 to 117.9. This is outrageous! I would like one person to explain to me what would justify a 7% price increase? Some might say it’s due to shipping costs, some might say it’s due to sup-

ply and demand. I say it is due to greed. I think the owners of all the stations in Chilliwack get together over coffee and decide how much to gouge us for at the pump. Oh, but that would mean driving to the coffee shop and using gasoline... maybe they just have a conference call and

decide then. Just so you know that this morning (Thursday Feb. 3) the PetroCan station at Whatcom Rd missed the conference call and maintained its price at 104.9. The Esso and the Shell got the call and were also at 117.9.

Veteran doesn’t trust numbers On the front page of MP Chuck Strahl’s Newsletter Winter 2011, he is pictured with veterans on a trip to Juno Beach - he was then Minister of Indian and Northern Affairs. Good intro for a guy who couldn’t be bothered to show up at the veterans’ rally Nov. 6 2010 in his own riding. On the second page, he outlines the veteran’s benefits with a positive spin. Subsequent to his newsletter delivered to every home in his riding, I was approached by many veterans. Their message was: “Wow! Did you see Chuck Strahl’s newsletter? His government is really supporting the veterans.” Strahl’s newslet-

ter totally misleads his constituents and creates a political smoke screen at taxpayer expense. He only mentions the big numbers. He even forgot to mention that most of these benefits stop at 65 years of age, that these benefits are not retroactive and that they cannot be implemented until voted in the House – scheduled for fall 2011........what a shame. On the third page he wrote “Myth vs. Reality - Setting the record straight”. He lists 3 myths, one being the lump sum payment up to $276,079.....he forgot to mention that only 4 veterans have gotten that amount so far. The average payout is more

like 30K for severe disability – Wow! Who would agree to lose a limb for 30K? He goes on with three options given to veterans instead of a lump sum payment. Mr. Strahl, you can put lipstick on a pig but it is still a pig. A 2nd myth.....” the government has arbitrarily and unfairly reduced the service pension at the age of 65”. His Reality answer and explanation that there is no claw back at age 65 is misleading. The issue is one of the unfairness and injustice created when the CPP was enacted in 1965. Veterans have never argued that it was not actuary correct. Why was Bill C-201, which

demanded an elimination of the claw back at 65, passed in the House only to be denied a Royal Recommendation by the Conservative Government? This Bill died on the Order Paper. Why? Mr. Strahl, veterans want the lump sum payment eliminated and the monthly disability payments re-instated. Furthermore, veterans in your riding are seeking your support to repeal the punitive and unfair pension claw back, restoring justice, fairness and financial dignity for veterans and their families.

NDP are doing just fine, thanks I was amazed to learn from Tom Fletcher that the B.C. New Democratic Party is in deep trouble, mainly because it believes it’s wrong that the fraction of British Columbians who control most of the wealth keep getting richer while the rest of us keep getting poorer. Before Jan. 26 I thought it was the B.C. Liberal Party whose leader has been forced to resign in a shower of accusations of lying to the public and bungling the introduction of the hated HST. I thought it was the B.C. Liberals who were wallowing in the B.C. Rail scandal, the Kash Heed scan-

dal, maintaining Canada’s lowest minimum wage, allowing a high rate of jobs lost through raw log exports, encouraging controversial net-cage salmon farming and waffling over proposed increases in oil tanker traffic. But no, it’s the NDP who are the villains. They simply don’t accept the rule of the Gordon Campbells who get together with Big Business to pile up profits and tell the B.C. public what’s good for them. New Democrats seem to think that the first function of a democratic government is to reflect the needs and wishes of the people, not the financial

ambitions of the wealthy and powerful. Clearly the working class must be guided by politicians and corporate CEOs through controls funded by insidious schemes like the HST, which lightens the tax load of Big Business by putting more of it on the ordinary taxpayer. Otherwise, the vast gap between the haves and the havenots might start getting smaller, and we’d all be in deep trouble. Tony Eberts New Westminster

Development of a Pest Management Plan Application Number: MOT – IP – PMP - 2011 Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure, South Coast Region 7818 – Sixth Street, Burnaby, B.C., V3N 4N8 Attention: Amber Smith Telephone: 604-660-0339 Fax: 604-660-2181 Email: amber.mt.smith@gov.bc.ca The purpose of the proposed Pest Management Plan (PMP) is to control invasive plants and/or noxious weeds on provincial Crown land in the South Coastal Mainland of B.C., including areas within or adjacent to high-risk sites (e.g. ecologically important natural areas), along transportation corridors, resource tenures, gravel pits and recreational sites. The PMP applies to areas located within the Metro Vancouver Regional District, the Fraser Valley Regional District, the Southwest half of the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District inclusive of Squamish but not including Lillooet and the lower portion of the Sunshine Coast Regional District, in the vicinity of Sechelt. The pest management methods proposed for use include manual/ mechanical and cultural methods, biological control agents and the use of pesticides within the area to which the PMP applies. The common name and trade name of the pesticides proposed for use under this plan include: glyphosate (e.g. Vantage Plus Max), triclopyr (e.g. Garlon Ultra), aminopyralid (e.g. Milestone), acetic acid (e.g. Ecoclear) and chondrostereum purpureum (e.g. Chontrol Peat Paste). Selective application methods include: cut and paint or inject, backpack or ATV foliar spraying, wick-on, basal bark, squirt bottle and stem injection. The proposed duration of the PMP is from April 1, 2011 to March 31, 2016. Copies of the proposed PMP and maps of the proposed treatment areas may be reviewed at the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure South Coast Regional Office, 7818 – Sixth Street, Burnaby, B.C., V3N 4N8 or online at http://www.th.gov.bc.ca/invasiveplant/. A person wishing to contribute information about a proposed treatment site, relevant to the development of the Pest Management Plan, may send copies of the information to the applicant at the address above within 30 days of the publication of this notice.

Challenge seeks freedom of nutritional choice

spokesman Roy Thorpe said the health authority will hold back on further enforcement action until the new court challenge is complete. Jongerden said she doesn’t aim to market raw milk directly to the public but only to the cow share’s 450 Lower Mainland members, as she had previously. Since farmers can drink milk from their own cows, members had argued they were merely collecting liquid dividends from the cows they own and that there was no public sale of milk.

However, victory in court might effectively legalize raw milk dairies. Jason Graatl, Jongerden’s lawyer, said the province should simply regulate unpasteurized dairies, apply a regime of inspections and require warning labels.

B.C.’s insistence on pasteurization is less about safety, he said, and more about extending the product shelf life and protecting “industrial” milk producers from raw milk competition. A U.S. pathologist has sworn an affidavit in support of

the safety of raw milk, adding pasteurization reduces beneficial enzymes and bacteria and lactose intolerant people can drink raw milk without problems. B.C.’s provincial health officer maintains unpasteurized milk is dangerous because it can be contaminated by bacteria and other pathogens that have caused serious outbreaks of illness in other jurisdictions. Samples of Home On The Range milk tested in early 2010 contained what public health officials said were high colliform and E. coli levels.

News Emptying ashtray caused apartment fire Emptying an ashtray into a plastic bag sparked a fire big enough to damage the kitchen stove and cabinets of an apartment suite on First Avenue Sunday. “There’s a fair bit of smoke damage, too, and that’s going to drive up the cleaning costs because smoke contaminates everything,” Assistant Fire Chief Ian Josephson said. The lone female occupant of the ground-floor suite told firefighters she had emptied the ashtray into a plastic garbage bag hung on the kitchen stove

not 10 minutes before the fire started. The woman was standing on the balcony having a cigarette with a friend when the fire alarm went off at about 7:40 p.m. “She was alerted to the fire by a working smoke alarm,” Josephson said, and with the help of another tenant put it out with a portable fire extinguisher. There were no civilian or firefighter injuries. The suite is located in a two-storey multi-family building in the 46000-block First Avenue.

came in the midst of an economic recession. But he said the theft also had a “dramatic” effect on other staff members and their families, some of whom submitted victim impact statements to the court. “It traumatized a lot of people, particularly in our office area,” he said, as many were close friends with the accused and felt their trust was betrayed. “When something like this happens, there’s a huge erosion of trust,” he said. Michelle Desrosiers, 30, pleaded guilty last March to one count of fraud over $5,000. She was originally charged with stealing $70,000, but had re-paid $20,000 before the restitution order was made. At the Dec. 29 court hearing, she received an 18-month conditional sentence, followed by three years on probation, plus the restitution order. During an interview outside the court, lawyer Trevor Shaw said the Crown asked for a jail sentence, but the judge ruled the conditional sentence was more appropriate. “We respect the court’s sentence,” he said. Desrosiers worked in bookkeeping at the dealership, he said, and the fraud was eventually detected by “unusual variations noticed in certain accounts.” O’Connor said the Crown had focused its case on the smaller “more easily proven” amount of stolen money, rather than the larger amount alleged by the dealership. He did not want to comment on possible civil action to recover the amount alleged. rfreeman@theprogress.com

Immunization still urged as flu virus moves west

For the record The Hope and Homes for Haiti article that ran in the Feb. 1 edition of the Chilliwack Progress mistakenly identified the homes as 41 square feet, when they are actually a much larger 41 square metres. The article also incorrectly stated that Spero Society had purchased 10 acres of land in Haiti, when it was actually Mountain Top Ministries, an aid agency that Spero is working with. The Progress apologizes for any inconvenience this may have had.

As a result, authorities advise that those at high risk have a plan in place for early treatment ahead of time. The flu is potentially a serious respiratory illness and comes on suddenly with fever and cough as well as general aches and fatigue. Frequent hand-washing and covering coughs and sneezes is advised to keep the virus from spreading. There’s been little sign in B.C. this winter of the H1N1 flu virus that triggered a mass immunization campaign a year ago.

Flu season has been mild so far in B.C. but health authorities warn it may not stay that way. The influenza virus hitting eastern Canada hard may be felt more strongly here in the weeks ahead. “The winter is long and the risk is not yet over,” said Dr. Danuta Skowronski, physician epidemiologist at the B.C. Centre for Disease Control. “It would be wise to learn from the experience in eastern Canada and prepare for that now, because the same could still happen here.” Influenza season typically spans November to April and the peak can happen any time during that period. There’s still time to get immunized even though it takes about two weeks for the vaccine to take full effect. Flu shots are still available through pub-

The province expanded Pharmacare coverage in December to include two brands of antiviral drugs, Tamiflu and Relenza. They’re now covered for people at high risk of complications and who have flu symptoms during the 2010-11 flu season, as well as all residents at long-term care homes. Most young healthy people recover from the flu without difficulty, but those at high risk may be helped with antivirals, which work best if taken at the first sign of symptoms appearing.

lic health units, doctors’ offices and pharmacists. “We are carefully watching other parts of the country,” added Fraser Health spokesperson Joan Marshall. This year’s vaccine does cover the H3N2 strain spreading in eastern Canada. The flu vaccine is recommended and free for the elderly, very young children, and people of all ages with chronic medical conditions as they are at highest risk of hospitalization and death due to complications from influenza.

Fall rains devastated potato and vegetable crops across the Fraser Valley, and now producers face uncertainty about how much the government is going to help them. The soggy September was disastrous for many farmers. Peter Schouten of Heppell’s Potato Corp. said they were the worst losses he has seen in 17 years as a farm owner. The largest producer in Abbotsford, he plants 650 acres of potatoes on Sumas Prairie, and lost about 30 per cent of it, worth about $2 million. Poinder Bhatti told the news he planted 110 acres of broccoli, and lost 78 of those, or 400 tons, representing $275,000. In October, the provincial agriculture min-

istry announced it had put together a nine-person working group to address the losses, but questions remain. Rob Butler of the B.C. Potato and Vegetable Growers Association, said producers have received money from crop insurance – for those who had it. The AgriStability program will also reimburse farmers, but that income stabilization, administered by the province, is slow in coming. Some farmers need help now to afford to plant this spring. The AgriRecovery program is a joint federal/provincial program designed to compensate farmers in the event of natural disasters such as droughts, floods or disease. It is triggered by the provincial government, which then pays 40 per

cent of the assistance, and the federal government pays the remaining 60 per cent. “We’re still pushing for that,” said Butler. “I don’t know why the (provincial) government is reluctant.” He has received indications that Ottawa is willing to activate AgriRecover, but the province is holding up the process. Butler noted that if Victoria is worried about overcompensating farmers, the AgriRecovery program offers a means for them to claw back funds. “You can at least become stabilized,” added Butler. Schouten, who has been working with government officials on the compensation issue, also believes Ottawa would be prepared to accept the situation as disastrous, and help producers. “I know we have the feds on board,” he said. “We (Heppell’s) need it, and other producers definitely need it.” While Schouten’s dollar losses may have been among the greatest, other smaller producers lost their entire crops, and their entire income. “Some guys never

even took the harvester out,” he said. He noted some farmers don’t have crop insurance, and AgriStability will not come through for up to 18 months. “Some of them will have to go into their equity,” predicted Schouten. He believes AgriRecovery is warranted, and would be a sound investment by the province. “It’s all money into our economy, and it brings money from the feds.” Last year, the federal government gave a $450-million package to Prairie farmers who had millions of acres wiped out by flooding, primarily in Saskatchewan, but also in Alberta and Manitoba. Estimates are that B.C. producers would need $30 million. The amount needed, and whether AgriRecovery is warranted, are questions that came up at a threehour meeting with growers and agriculture ministry officials on Jan. 20, said Abbotsford South MLA John van Dongen. He said the ministry must write a submission to B.C. Agriculture Minister Ben Stewart, and has been asked to do that “as expeditiously as possible.” Van Dongen said if the agriculture ministry sees there is “any pain” to producers, then the issue should be submitted to Treasury Board for AgriRecovery funding. “This is a one-in-90year event for potato farmers,” said van Dongen. “It is a catastrophic event.”

First step is Salish sucker plan Jessica Peters Black Press There was “a lot of misunderstanding” at a recent meeting between the public and the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, says a local biologist. The meeting was to discuss a recovery strategy for the endangered Salish sucker, which lives primarily in drainage ditches in the District of Kent. DFO officials held the meeting in Harrison Hot Springs two weeks ago, with about 60 people attending, including a large contingent from Kent council and staff. Dr. Mike Pearson, who works closely with both the DFO and Agassiz area farmers, says that the confusion “stems from nobody doing this before.” A team of biologists created the document several years ago, and Pearson wrote the draft, independently from the DFO. They submitted the work in August of 2005, and it quickly got caught up in legal wrangling, Pearson says. “It disappeared into the DFO for a couple of years,” he told Black Press. “In 2007, they came out the strategy, published it on their website, but changed it without talking to the authors.” Several maps outlining another endangered species,

the Nooksack Dace, had been removed. “You don’t just change people’s work without talking to them,” Pearson says. In response, the DFO was taken to court by a coalition of environmental groups, including the David Suzuki Foundation and Sierra Legal. “While that lawsuit was in progress, they sat on (the recovery strategy),” Pearson explains. But the lawsuit has now been settled, and the public is finally seeing the document with the maps. While the Nooksack Dace isn’t a huge concern in Agassiz, the Salish sucker certainly is — and for good reason. “This is the first time in Canada that critical habitat has been identified on private land,” Pearson says. And it’s not been identified on just any private land, but in strategically-built, purposeful drainage ditches. DFO is the authority that decides how ditches are maintained, and as it stands, farmers are generally unhappy with the way that’s being done. Deeming their land critical habitat threatens to add even more red tape and legality to the way they farm, they said at the recent meeting. Pearson says this draft recovery plan, which had to be written

to provide a “base line” for the needs of the Salish sucker, is the first document of two-document process. “It’s just a biological document, asking ‘what does a fish need, what’s threatening it,’” he says. “The next step is an action plan, ‘what area we actually going to do?’” Identifying the land as critical habitat does not mean larger legal riparian zones, he adds. “We’re not going to put 30 meters of buffer on every piece of land in the Valley,” he says. They just needed to write an official document that sets out exactly how and why the Salish sucker is endangered, and have that listed with the DFO on their “legal list.” Any further action would come from the draft action plan. “That document isn’t written,” Pearson says. There is still time to provide feedback to the DFO on how the draft recovery strategy plan affects your land or livability, positively or negatively. To do that, email sara@pac. dfo-mpo.gc.ca or fax 604-6660417 by February 11. To see the draft recovery plan, visit the DFO website and search for Draft Recovery Strategy for the Salish Sucker.

Outreach worker will join care team Jennifer Feinberg The Progress A new part-time worker will be hired by Chilliwack Restorative Justice this year to help support high-risk youth in the community. The local non-profit group recently scored a $20,000 grant from Telus, which allows them to hire a part-time outreach worker for a one-year contract, said CRJ executive director Kim McLandress. “It’s something we’ve been thinking about for a while,” she said. “It will fill the need for someone who can support our volunteers, and work with youth.”

They’re dealing with more and more cases every year. “And more challenging cases to boot,” she said. The group brings offenders and victims together, finding ways to repair the harm

caused by the crimes like shoplifting, vandalism and more. Youth are connected with their communities, they are provided mentors and ways to pay restitution, and there’s a forum for victims. The position will

become part of the “care team” they build for clients and their families. The ideal candidate will have knowledge and experience in the child and youth care field, as well as from backgrounds in social services and counselling.

Residents want gravel oversight GRAVEL from Front “By condoning the operation ... and overriding the permit, they are making a considerable amount of money,” Froese said. According to gravel volumes recorded in city documents, the quarry’s permit was also exceeded in 2007 and in 2010. Removal

records for 2009 were not released by the city. When the stop-work order was issued in Januar y, Kirkness told The Progress that the over-production occurred because of the need to fulfill two unusually large contracts, a situation he didn’t see repeating itself. But he said he was “surprised” by the stop-

work order because the ministry was informed each month of production levels at the quarry. Which raises the question of how many other gravel pits in B.C. are exceeding permit levels, with the tacit approval of the ministry? Froese said “overmining is a common

complaint of residents” living near gravel pits, but the Vedder Mountain group is focused only on a proposal by Kirkness to build a conveyor belt to haul gravel down the mountainside, not to the quarry itself. “We’re not out to get Kirkness, that’s not our role,” Froese said. “We’re defending the citizen’s right to speak

“We Serve”

Presented by Mt. Cheam Lions Club

It appears, according to the groundhog, that we will have an early spring. Although this is not a scienti¿c barometer of what is to come it makes a person feel better after the cold winter we are having.No matter how it turns out there is one thing you can be sure of -- whether it is spring or winter the Mount Cheam Lions will be around to help those in need. We have a very busy year ahead of us and as usual we need the help of the citizens of Chilliwack to support our various projects. On March 6th the Mount Cheam Lions will join forces with the Vedder Golden Branch #280 Legion to put on a Casino Day at the Legion at 5661 Vedder Road. Games will start at 11am and will include many of your favorite games. King Richard Brodeur, famed Canucks goalie will be on hand as special guest. Proceeds will be going to the Senior Resources Society. Come out and have an enjoyable day while at the same time supporting a worthwhile cause. While speaking of seniors, it is unfortunate that the Time Out programme has been cut due to withdrawl of funding. This was a needed and well used program as it gave many seniors a place to socialize with others. This was good for their physical as well as their mental well-being. It is a sad loss. Although the Mount Cheam Lions, unfortunately, can not replace this program we are hoping to help in some small way to ¿ll part of the gap. This is under discussion within our club and more details will be disclosed when we do have something in place. That’s about it for this time; I hope to see you at our Casino Day on March 6.

Praying for Chile This year’s upcoming World Day of Prayer service was written by native Chilean women. Every year churches around the world gather to learn about and pray for a country in need. And following last year’s massive 7.0-magnitude earthquake that shook Chile, the third-world country was chosen for the annual prayer event. Participants of World Day of Prayer will learn about the country’s history and struggles, and will pray for their recovery. More than 170 countries around the world and 2,000 communities are participating. In Chilliwack, there will be two services; one at Carman United Church at 1 p.m. and the other at Chilliwack United Church at 1:30 p.m. The keynote speaker for the service at Chilliwack United Church will be Susan Rutherford who has been to Chile several times and who has family still living there. World Day of Prayer has been an annual event since 1922 and is celebrated on the first Friday of March. Ashley Brown has been selected to participate in Miss Universe Canada 2011. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Pageants not just a pretty girl sport Katie Bartel The Progress At first glance, Ashley Brown might be judged as just another pretty face. The 21-year-old does in fact seem flawless. Her skin is perfect, her eyes are perfect, her smile is perfect, even her confidence is perfect. She knows she’s beautiful, but she also knows she has substance too. “We all do,” she said. Brown is competing in this year’s Miss Universe Canada competition. She was one of 16 B.C. contestants selected, one of 63 overall. In the eight years of the Miss Universe Canada pageant, no B.C. girl has ever won the crown. Brown hopes to change that. And yet, while Brown has always taken pride in presenting herself nicely, and has a love for dresses and high-heeled shoes, she never watched or participated in beauty pageants, never fantasized about strutting down the catwalk, never imagined she’d be standing in front of a panel of judges wearing nothing but a bikini. “I’m really nervous about that,” she said. “But I am what I am. I’m okay with how I look. I love myself no matter what.” And the humanitarian undertones of the competition have helped quell the nerves. Miss Universe Canada is a launching pad for Miss Universe, the famed Donald Trump production. The winner of Miss Universe gets the opportunity to spend a year working with Trump and being an ambassador for the United Nations.

“That’s the biggest thing for me,” said Brown, who’s in her second year of a political science degree at the University of the Fraser Valley. “I’m very interested in humanitarian issues; that’s what attracted me to the pageant in the first place.” Her history proves it. Behind Brown’s beautiful long-lashed eyes, is a young woman who strives to help those less fortunate. At 18, fresh out of high school, Brown went on a six-month mission with Youth With A Mission (YWAM) to Australia and Vanuatu, a small island nation west of Fiji. There, she spent her days with the village people and started a youth sports program for impoverished children. She lived in shacks with thatched roofs; had no running hot water; and ate nothing but bread and rice for two straight months. Last year, she was in England, again with YWAM, participating in the school of reconciliation and justice where she worked with representatives from around the world on how to achieve conflict mediation in war-torn countries. And after graduation, she wants to work for a non-government agency, like Red Cross or Care International, that specializes in aiding women and children. Not exactly the kind of person some would believe to be interested in beauty pageants. But pageants aren’t what a lot of people make them out to be, said Brown, who balked at the negativities associated with pageants. “I think the people making those comments are the people who have never been

around a pageant before and they’ve bought into the misconceptions about what a pageant is about,” she said. “You can only make judgements if you’ve been around pageants, but if you haven’t you don’t really know.” In the last few months, Brown’s been getting a good picture of what they’re all about. She’s been repeatedly interviewed by the regional and national directors; was put through etiquette classes; worked with a “flamboyant” professional runway coach to master her walk; was given guidelines on parts of her body that “should” be toned; has watched what she eats and spent hours working out. “They promote healthy, toned, firm bodies, that’s a fact,” said Brown. “But they don’t promote ultra-thin, they never told me to go on a diet.” And while the preparations have sometimes been America’s Next Top Model-esque, they’ve never had the cattiness of the show. “I was really nervous that I’d be among all these model-types, but they weren’t like that, they were all normal girls,” Brown said. “They’re gorgeous, but they’re also ambitious, intelligent, welcoming, and warm.” Participating in the competition will cost Brown approximately $2,000 for travel expenses, pageant attire, hotel, etc. She hopes to attract local businesses as sponsors. Anyone interested can contact her by email at ash.nicole.brown@gmail.com or by phone at 604-819-7821. The Miss Universe Canada pageant is in June. kbartel@theprogress.com

If there’s a style of cooking that captures the romance of the month, it has to be Italian. And now, with the recent opening of Arcobalenos Trattoria, there is a new place in town to take that special someone. Arcobalenos opened in mid December with a promise to bring the freshest and finest ingredients to Chilliwack’s restaurant scene. And Joshua Sitwell, the restaurant’s new general manager, says Arcobalenos is making good on that promise. The new eatery is located in the space that once held the Bavarian House on Yale Road. It’s been renovated and is part of an aggressive upgrade of both the restaurant and the Traders Inn hotel by the property’s new owners. Sitwell, who manages both, says the owners plan to elevate the establishments to a new standard. “When we take on a job now, we do it right,� he says. Much of that work is “behind the scenes,� like electrical wiring, Internet and plumbing. But they’ve also invested in new linens for the 34-room hotel, flat screen televisions, and an uncompromising commitment to cleanliness. That attitude is evident at Arcobalenos, Sitwell says, not just by the new carpets, cutlery and china, but also by Chef Stephen Ingram in the kitchen. Chef Ingram brings more than 20 years experience – here in Canada and abroad

Summer program at UFV gives context for aboriginal land claims With about 60 per cent of B.C.’s eligible First Nations bands in the treaty process, and the remainder either in litigation or in direct issue-specific talks with various ministries, multiple negotiations are underway across the province to address outstanding social, economical, and geographical injustices. Unfortunately, many people involved in treaty and land claims deliberations are not fully aware of the history and context of these negotiations. UFV is offering the third edition of a short certificate program to help these individuals acquire and explore key background knowledge quickly and thoroughly. The Indigenous Maps, Films, Rights, and Land Claims certificate will be delivered May 2-30 in Chilliwack, in the heart of traditional Stó:lõ First Nation territory. For aboriginal groups, hereditary title is the source of rights within their traditional territories. Because of this, First Nations view land, sea, and resources

as fundamental components of modern treaties, or as central to litigations of a comprehensive or specific kind. This three-course, 12-credit certificate gives participants the opportunity to learn skills that are of direct relevance to the history, communication, implementation, and critique of rights, title, and land claims. It will use film, oral histories, documentaries, surveys and maps, legal discourse analysis, and field work to explain their importance to the indigenous land and rights process world-wide, but with a specific focus on British Columbia. There is a shortage of people – of both aboriginal and nonaboriginal descent – who have both the cultural understanding and practical skills required for the successful negotiation and resolution of indigenous land claims. This certificate should provide students with a credential that they can take back to their communities, organizations, firms, and government ministries, says Dr. Eric Davis,

Your Community Newspaper Since 1891

vice-president academic at UFV. Participants will learn in a small group with instructors who have extensive experience in the field, including Hugh Brody, author, filmmaker and Canada Research Chair in Aboriginal Studies; Dr. Ken Brealey, UFV geography department head; Dr. Dave Schaepe, co-director of the Stó:lõ Research and Resource Management Centre (RRMC) and adjunct professor at SFU; and Sonny McHalsie, co-manager and cultural advisor of the Stó:lõ RRMC. The program begins with in-class and in-field learning delivered daily in four focused weeks between May 2 and 30 and uses the remaining time in the semester (until June 26) for student assignments. Interested parties are strongly encouraged to apply by April 18 to begin May 2. Please call Ken Brealey at 604-504-7441, local 4336, or email Ken.Brealey@ ufv.ca facilitate the process. Full details, costs, course info, and instructor profiles are available at www.ufv.ca/landclaims.

Bruins beat Blazers to bump the slump

PUCK PREVIEW

Eric J. Welsh, The Progress You could almost hear it couldn’t you? That palpable sigh of relief emanating from the Chilliwack Bruins following a 4-3 home ice win over the Kamloops Blazers Saturday night. A win that ended a seven game stretch of misery — seven losses and a slide to the bottom of the Western conference standings. One win didn’t make all things better. The good guys still sit near the bottom (ninth) of the wild west as of Monday morning. But now they’ve got something to build on, and for the next five days they can stop asking and answering the question, ‘When are we going to win?’ “It was a real character win, maybe the best character win we’ve had all year,” said Bruins head coach Marc Habscheid. “We haven’t been winning a lot lately and we got gritty performances from pretty much everybody.” The best part of Saturday’s win was that it came against the Blazers, a team that, in just eight days, has quickly moved into top spot on Chilliwack’s most-hated list. This Kamloops team beat the Bruins twice in the previous week, including a 2-1 setback Friday night. The Blazers were irritating about it too, trotting out an overthe-top victory celebration after both wins. The Bruins responded the best way possible, and the upper hand is theirs until the teams meet again in early March. They didn’t make it easy on themselves. Chilliwack trailed 2-0 through 20 minutes on goals by Dylen Willick and Thomas Frazee, and it looked like just another long night in the making. With Chilliwack’s playoff hopes hanging in the balance and their losing streak in danger of going to eight games, Ryan Howse did what great players often do.

HEAD-TO-HEAD The Bruins are 12-23-1-1 alltime against the Rockets, with a record of 8-10-0-1 within the friendly confines of Prospera Centre.

LAST MEETING A four goal second period was the difference as the Bruins dropped a 6-4 decision in Kelowna Feb. 2. Roman Horak had two goals for Chilliwack with Mike Forsyth and Kevin Sundher adding singles.

scored just his second of the season on a harmless looking shot that might have hit the stick of Chilliwack winger Mike Forsyth on its way into the Bruin net. The heroics then were left to 16-year-old rookie Brandon Magee, who scored the game winner at 6:09 of the third. Bosch made a highlight reel stop on Magee’s first shot, but the Edmonton native potted the rebound for his eighth of the season, and just his third in his last 21 outings. McKinlay drew the primary assist with another great setup. “He (Magee) is a character kid with a big heart,” Habscheid said. “He works hard and he’s had a really good year. I can’t say enough good things about him.” The goaltending of Gore has to be noted in this one. The veteran stopper has taken his lumps lately.

But he turned in an inspired performance in both weekend games and provides hope as the Bruins continue to chase down a playoff spot. The post-season chase continues Friday night in Kelowna, followed by home games Saturday (Kelowna) and Sunday (Tri-City). With the monkey off their collective backs, Habscheid hopes his crew can build some momentum. “During that seven game losing streak we had some clunkers, but we also had some games where we played pretty good and deserved a better fate,” Habscheid noted. “I like that they’re pushing forward and trying to find ways rather than throwing their hands up in the air. When you do that, eventually you’re going to get a break.” Catch more in Friday’s Progress sports.

CHILLIWACK

OMMUNITY SPORTS REVIEW

Final fight looms for Chilliwack boxer Eric J. Welsh, The Progress The championship belt is nice. Really nice. When you grew up as a little boy dreaming of winning one a belt, this is what you hoped for. It’s big. It’s heavy. It’s shiny. And right now, it belongs to Chilliwack’s Keith Holdsworth, who knocked off Alex Pippes in a B.C. Combative Sports Association light heavyweight title fight in late January. Holdsworth gave up eight pounds (183 to 175) to Pippes, a power puncher out of Abbotsford’s Blue Corner Boxing Club. But what Holdsworth surrendered in strength, he made up for in speed and technical skill, outpointing Pippes to take the City Championship. “I sparred with him, did a couple rounds with him a year ago, so I had an idea of what kind of fighter he is,” Holdsworth said. “He’s a power puncher who doesn’t throw a lot of punches. He sits back looking for the big right hook.” The fight was held at the Cascade Casino in Langley, and Holdsworth knew what Pippes’ game plan would be. Strength would give Pippes an advantage inside, where he could wear Holdsworth down and set him up for the big shot. Holdswor th, a 39-year-old veteran, game planned to keep moving, score with flurries and move away again. “I knew the first 30 seconds would be critical because that’s when he was going to be at his strongest,” Holdsworth said. “About halfway through the first round we came together in the middle of the ring and traded a flurry of punches, about four or five each. I didn’t know right away, but I hurt him.” The first two rounds were the most dangerous, but Holdsworth saw Pippes fading in

the third and fourth rounds. Still, knowing Pippes could turn out the lights with one punch made the entire fight a scary one for Holdsworth. No matter how well you train, the idea of being knocked out is everpresent. “It was scary, but I knew if I was able to make it through the four rounds I’d be able to outscore him,” Holdsworth said. “My corner was keeping me updated as we went along, and I had a pretty good idea that I was ahead. It was just a matter of keeping my hands up and staying away from the heavy shots.” Approximately 300 people watched the bout, including several of Holdsworth’s friends, family and work colleagues. The British Columbia Combative Spor ts Assocation put on the fight and did it up right. Fighting outside the watchful eye of B.C. Boxing (which does not sanction COMBSPORT events), Holdsworth fought as a pro-amateur. “It was a really nice venue and they had the music and the lights, the card girls and all that,” he said. “And this was the first fight I’ve ever had without head-gear and a shirt, looking like a pro. So that was a little different.” Holdsworth didn’t earn any money for the fight, but he did set himself up as the top contender for the COMBSPOR T B.C. Championship belt, currently held by Hardeep Saran, who trains at Bisla Boxing. “He’s a young guy (24 years old) and he actually fights a lot like I did when I was younger, fast and technical,” Holdsworth said. “I’m basing my chances on experience, but he’s 7-0 defending his title, so it’ll be a challenge.” Holdsworth hasn’t seen Saran stop anybody yet. His wins come on points, which leads Holdsworth to believe he may have a shot. “I don’t think he has a lot of power that will

affect me, and I’m thinking I might be able to put enough pressure on him to break him down,” Holdsworth said. “He’s got speed and youth, but hopefully I can overwhelm him with constant pressure. I’ve done it before against other young fighters who don’t always know how to handle that pressure. It’s about conditioning and having the mental strength to battle through.” Because there is a certain level of animosity between B.C. Boxing and COMBSPOR T, Holdsworth is making the March 18 title fight his last. Even if he wins, he doesn’t plan to defend his title. He’ll retire, re-register with B.C. Boxing and dive back into coaching, passing on his knowledge to promising young boxers at Revolution Chilliwack. “B.C. Boxing is really putting the hammer down on anything to do with COMBSPORT,” he noted. “My B.C. Boxing registration ran out in December and I didn’t re-register because I wanted to go for this belt. After March 18, I’ve told COMBSPORT that that will be it for me. I’ll still train guys for COMBSPORT fights, but I won’t be able to be in their corner.” Holdsworth actually would have prefered to have a Revolution Chilliwack student fighting Pippes or Saran. But he has yet to find a pupil who believes in their ability to do it and do it well. “That’s a big part of why I did this because I wanted to show the guys at the club that if you train hard you can do it,” he said. “I come to the club now and everyone’s excited because everyone wants a belt. I hope seeing that belt and knowing what I did at 39 years old gives the guys some motivation. There are a lot of talented young guys in Chilliwack. They just don’t know it.” Get more information on Revolution Chilliwack online at www.revolutionfightteam.com.

Bruins blazing into playoffs Chilliwack’s peewee A2 Junior Bruins are heading into the playoffs on a roll, having won their final two league games. On Wednesday, Chilliwack blanked the Surrey Hurricanes 5-0 behind the stellar goaltending of Ben Mazerolle. Zack Robertson opened the scoring in the first period with an assist to Blake Bonnar. Robertson had another in the second period, with Colin Gormley also finding the net.

Affiliate Dylan Ohlsen picked up an assist. Third period snipers were Robertson, Bonnar and Ryan Trottier. On Thursday, Chilliwack sent 11 skaters up against a full-strength Burnaby squad known for collecting tons of penalty minutes. Trailing 2-0 early, Bonnar got the Bruins on the board with assists to Brody van Velze and Ohlsen. Brock Menges and Trottier

tallied in the second period, leaving the game tied 3-3 through 40 minutes. Menges set up Robertson for the go-ahead goal early in the final frame, but Burnaby came back to tie. With just nine ticks left on the clock, Gormley came through with the game winning goal. Goaltender Keaton Dyck got the win in net. Chilliwack’s record over the final five regular season games was 4-0-1.

Unfortunate circumstances forced Laycock to step away from the role in June of 2008 as she waged a war with endometrial cancer. Following a successful year long battle, Laycock returned to the fray, rejoining the CFC board in 2009. And now she is back in a role she describes as ‘a comfortable fit.’ “When Br uce announced that he wasn’t coming back, I thought maybe it was time to jump back into the saddle and get busy again,” she said. “It’s the opportunity to help create change and move the club forward. Bruce did a great job getting us to this point and now

I can guide us through the next steps.” Typically, one run at the head of a major minor sports organization is enough. Few people have the desire to come back for more. But Laycock insisted no arm-twisting was required to get her back. “It was tough to step away in 2008 because I’d invested so much time and energy into the club,” she said. “To focus on myself, which is something I didn’t and still don’t do a lot, it was very tough. I didn’t even have to think about coming back, even though my family was like, ‘Are you nuts?’” The landscape has changed remarkably since Laycock left. For

a while, it seemed like CFC was trotting out a new team or program on a weekly basis, and Laycock is still catching up on what’s gone on in her absence. “Wow, there’s been quite a few, and you don’t get told a lot when you’re vice-chairperson,” she said. “Ian (former head coach Knight) gave us a great foundation to build off of, and Glenn (current head coach Wilson) is now tailoring things a little bit more towards what the membership is asking for.” What that means is still undefined. Laycock thinks much is already in place, and the rest will be determined through careful evaluation. “The first thing I want

to do is have a ‘how are we doing?’ session so I know where we’re at in the eyes of the membership,” she said. “I don’t know if I can honestly answer where we’re at, because I don’t know. I need to hear from the membership, the people who pay the bills.” Laycock had kind words for Davies, who did an oustanding job building and nurturing relationships in Chilliwack. “He did a phenomenal job when Ian moved on (to Abbotsford), getting things organized so the club could continue,” she said. “He provided leadership through that transition.” Get more information on local youth soccer online at www.chilliwackfc.com.

Y O U R R E A L E S TAT E P R O F E S S I O N A L I have over 11 years of combined business and real estate experience, I work, live and play in the Chilliwack area and I am active in our local community. Connecting with people using good communication, honesty and professionalism are the cornerstones of my business. So much so that 80% of my business is from previous clients and referrals. That says a lot about how I work and how I look after my Buyers and Sellers. At the end of the day I believe in treating people how I would like to be treated and that involves trust, patience and the experience to provide sound real estate advice. Give me a call today – I’m very friendly and easy-going and would love to hear from you!

Y O U R R E A L E S TAT E P R O F E S S I O N A L Chilliwack is not my hometown, but it feels like it is. I was born in Tisdale, Saskatchewan and spent most of my growing up on a dairy farm. After graduation I moved to Calgary for 15 years, then my husband was transferred to the coast and we made our home in Surrey. I moved out here as a single mom with my three kids almost 12 years ago. We loved Chilliwack immediately and my family has had a very happy life here. So I feel like I’m well qualified to work with new people coming to the area, as well as those who have been here forever, because I believe in this city. I think I’ve found a little piece of paradise and the wisest people know this to be true. Give me a call anytime for your complimentary market evaluation or if you know someone moving to town, pass along my name, because Chilliwack is my hometown now.

Real estate markets can swiftly shift – Seize the day! If you are thinking of selling your home, now is the time to list your home with a real estate professional. If you are thinking of buying your first home or upgrading, now is also the time to consider your options. The real estate marketplace can be very fickle. Many factors come into play, but they all boil down to supply and demand. When buyer-demand is high and the supply of real estate for sale is low, prices tend to escalate until they reach a certain point where buyers decrease and listing inventories increase. When this marketreversal happens, sellers who price their homes at the higher level of previous sales prices must re-think their pricing strategies. If they don’t, their homes may not sell. Whether you are buying or selling a home, it is important to remember that the shift from a seller’s to a buyer’s market can occur very quickly. Many variables can affect the real estate market; it can go from a seller’s

to a buyer’s market, and back again in a short time. In a normal market, price and interest rate are the two most important factors. When interest rates are low, buyers’ purchasing power increases. As the interest rates go up, monthly mortgage payments are increased, and this may temporarily eliminate some buyers from the marketplace. In the shift toward a buyer’s market, homes will sell if they are priced well. If you are a first-time buyer trying to save a bigger down payment for your first mortgage loan, you should reconsider. With the present interest rates you may already qualify. A lower interest rate is in many ways equivalent to a higher down payment. Either one will reduce your monthly payment and the monthly payment in relationship to your income and other financial factors is the main criteria for loan qualification. Since interest rates are still low, now might be the best time for

you to buy a home. As home prices and/or interest rates rise, you may find the home you were saving up for has moved out of your price league. If you are considering selling your home, do not hesitate thinking that prices will rise. If the market begins to reverse, then you may have to make an adjustment in your pricing strategy. If you are sitting on the fence, waiting for the price of your present home to rise before listing for sale, remember, you will also have to pay more for the home you purchase. There is little to no gain in waiting to sell if you are going to purchase another home in the same market area. Perhaps you have no plans to buy or sell a home right now, but you are curious about your possibilities. Realtors can answer any questions you may have about real estate and provide you with expert information to help you make a decision.

✞ Obituaries

Jan. 9, 1923 – Feb. 2, 2011 Charlotte Eichstadt passed away peacefully into the presence of her Lord and Saviour, Je- EICHSTADT sus Christ, on Feb. 2, at the Glenwood Care Home. She was born in Potsdam, Germany, during difficult times. During her teens, she had to get up very early to prepare food for workers using only a wood stove. She also worked in a food distribution firm, doing the bookkeeping and driving a truck with a double clutch. This was quite an unusual accomplishment for a woman at this time. She also took nurses’ training and worked in a children’s hospital. She chose to follow the Lord at the age of 12. She loved going to church and singing in the choir which was directed by her father. She met Werner Eichstadt in the Baptist church in Essen during nurses’ training. They were married June 3, 1950. In 1952, they emigrated to Canada and moved to Chilliwack. They joined the Victoria Avenue Baptist Church and continued to attend this church (now Chilliwack Baptist) until a few years ago. They had very little but Charlotte was an excellent homemaker. In the early years, Revenue Canada audited them because it seemed impossible that they could be living on the small income that the Eichstadts had declared, but she showed them her vegetable garden and explained that soup bones were free. Their son, Ullrich (Oly) was born in 1954. She was a wonderfully kind and loving mother. She continued to serve in the church, teaching Sunday School, playing piano and organ, and visiting the sick. She taught music lessons and was a member of the Chilliwack Music Teachers’ Association. She loved flowers and was overwhelmed with the beauty of God’s creation. In 1973, the family moved to Ryder Lake, where she continued to garden and enjoy the beauty of nature. She was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother. She leaves behind her devoted husband of 60 years, Werner, her son and daughter-in-law, Oly and Doris, and grandsons, David and Matthew. Charlotte will be remembered for her strong faith in Christ, her kind and gentle nature, her warm and generous heart and unconditional love for her family. The family is very grateful to the staff at Glenwood Care Home for their wonderful care and compassion. A service to honour and celebrate Charlotte’s life will be held at 2:30 on Saturday, Feb. 12, at the Chilliwack Baptist Church on First Avenue. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to North American Baptist Missions. Why not have your say? theprogress.com

KINNIS Claire Winifred

It is with great sadness that we share with you the passing of Claire Winifred Kinnis. At KINNIS the age of 85, in Chilliwack, B.C. and struggling with cancer Claire left us on January 30, 2011 with her dear friend Helen and Brenda from the Hospice Society at her side. While it was a great struggle for Claire she always maintained a positive attitude and left us with a smile on her face. Claire was predeceased by her parents, George Johnstone and Mary Winifred Kinnis. Claire’s brother Arthur Kinnis of Victoria, B.C. also left us on January 20, 2011 to be there for his sister. Claire is survived by her sister-in-law Betty of Victoria, brother Bill (Gladys) of Montreal, niece Mary Anne (Wayne Ladner), nephew Rick (Jeanne), nephew Ralph (Ruth), nephew Jack (Karen), niece Rosemary, nephew Paul, nephew Chris (Monica)and nephew Stephen. She has also left behind many great nieces and nephews and grand nieces and nephews all who loved her very much. Claire has also left behind many great friends that have enjoyed her company on the golf course or at the bridge table. Claire was an avid and good golfer as the Ladies Club Championship trophy at the McLeery Golf Course will show. Claire participated in many tournaments throughout the province. Claire was born and raised until the age of 15 yrs in Trail, B.C. at which time she, her Mother and brother Bill moved to Vancouver. Claire was a 1948 graduate of the Vancouver General Hospital School of Nursing at which time she first went to work in Bermuda, then at the Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria and then to Los Angeles, California. She then went back to University and after completing her studies became a research assistant in children’s health care facilities (Vancouver), fetal alcohol syndrome and children’s blindness studies. Claire will be missed by all of us on the golf course and at family events but knowing that her spirit will always be with us will help to make her absence a little more tolerable. Thank you for being such an important part of our lives Claire. Grateful thanks for the compassionate and loving care of Dr. Bevan Voth and the Crossroads Family Practise staff, the Homecare Nursing staff, the Homecare Support staff and the Hospice Society Vigil volunteers. By request there will not be a service at this time but a celebration of Claire’s life will take place in May. In Claire’s honour memorial donations to the Canadian Cancer Society would be greatly appreciated.
