Suspect charged in Planje murder Robert Freeman The Progress Steven Kenneth Frederickson, charged with the second-degree murder of Robert Jan-Planje, appeared briefly in Chilliwack provincial court Wednesday as friends and family of both men looked on. Frederickson, who is hearing- and speechimpaired, indicated to the judge he understood his case was adjourned to a Feb. 1 video appearance with his lawyer. The 44-year-old man was arrested Tuesday just moments after he made bail and was released from custody on earlier assault charges involving Planje. Planje, 64, had been missing since the morning of Dec. 13, 2010 when the Chilliwack RCMP were called to his home in the Rainbow Estates trailer park to check on his well-being. When police attended they found no one at the residence. However, there were signs of an altercation. A search for Planje began along Ballam Road in Chilliwack, where police had found items linked to his home, but his body was not found until Dec. 30 near Hope by a local resident walking his dog. An autopsy confirmed Planje’s identity, and the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team determined he was the victim of a homicide. Planje was not known to the police, but he was well-known in Chilliwack as the secretary of the Gypsy Project, which offered help for the homeless. Planje knew Frederickson through an earlier relationship with his mother, and he had taken him into his mobile home on a temporary basis. A funeral service for Planje was held Sunday in Chilliwack. Police said although the case is now before the courts, they are still interested in obtaining any additional information people may have about Frederickson or Planje. Anyone with information can call the IHIT tip line at 1-877-551-IHIT. Anonymous calls can be made to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222TIPS. rfreeman@theprogress.com

Promontory Road – one of two access roads to the hillside Ryder Lake community – was closed following “deep soil failure” on Monday. GREG KNILL/ PROGRESS

Frustration over Promontory road closure Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Ryder Lake residents forced to detour around some emergency road work on Promontory Road are getting frustrated with the inconvenience. But it looks like it will be several weeks before things get back to normal. A six- to eight-inch slump caused by “deep soil failure” took out a chunk of the roadway on Monday morning, city officials reported. They immediately closed Promontory to all traffic in both directions from Sylvan Road to Extrom Road. The section they have to fix measured more than 70 metres long, and it cracked

along the painted line. The upshot is that many residents have to take the narrow and winding Elkview Road to get home until the road repair work is done. “It’s adding an extra half hour a day onto our trips up and down the hill,” said Sparrow Road resident Shannon Thornton. Everyone who lives on either Extrom Road or Thornton Road is affected if they use Promontor y Road. That accounts for at least 30 households, and maybe 100 people in all, she estimated. “We hope they manage to re-open one lane soon,” said Thornton. She wonders if the road failure had something to do with the city’s resurfacing project

Earthquake drill fails to register in Chilliwack Katie Bartel The Progress Chilliwack seems unshaken by the possibility of a major earthquake hitting the region. On Jan. 26 at 10 a.m. more than 340,000 registrants from B.C., including municipalities, schools, businesses, organizations and individuals, will be participating in the inaugural Great British Columbia ShakeOut earthquake drill. But ver y few are from Chilliwack. As of Thursday, the only places registered were St. Mary’s elementary, Tyson elementary, RCMP Pacific Regional Training Centre, Chilliwack Society for Community Living and O’Connor Motors. The ShakeOut is a 60-second earthquake drill designed to

increase awareness on how the public can better prepare and protect themselves from a large earthquake. It will be the largest earthquake drill to ever take place in Canada. “We need to do more to heighten the awareness of our general public on the earthquake risk,” said Heather Lyle, co-chair of the BC Earthquake Alliance Society, which organized the event. The City of Chilliwack, however, felt there wasn’t enough time to plan the event. “The timing was not conducive for getting the word out,” said Jim MacDonald, emergency program coordinator for the city. MacDonald said an event like this requires a constant bombardment of public education in order for the community to buy in. “I didn’t want to do it half-baked,”

he said. But the thing with earthquakes, they’re not scheduled, they just happen. And in B.C. the risks are significant, said Lyle. B.C. is the most earthquakeprone region in Canada where upwards of 3,000 small-scale earthquakes occur annually. “They’re less than three or four on the magnitude scale so you don’t really feel them, but the fact is we are part of the Ring of Fire,” said Lyle. The Pacific Ring of Fire is a string of volcanoes encircling the basin of the Pacific Ocean where shifts and faults in the earth’s crust lead to frequent earthquakes. In 1949, the Queen Charlotte Islands suffered an 8.1-magnitude earthquake, the largest earthquake in Canada to date. In 1990,

the Fraser Lowlands experienced a 4.9-magnitude earthquake with several aftershocks. And in 1996, a 5.5-magnitude earthquake east of Seattle was felt in the Lower Mainland. “We could be faced with a significant mega-thrust earthquake,” said Lyle. Being prepared is key. The ShakeOut is promoting the “Drop. Cover. Hold on.” technique where if an earthquake struck, you drop to the ground, take cover under a sturdy desk or table, and hold on to the furniture until the shaking stops. It’s also advising people not to seek safety in a doorway as door frames in modern houses are not built to withstand a major earthquake and do not provide protection from falling objects. For the Chilliwack Society for

Flooding irks Maple Falls Road residents Jennifer Feinberg The Progress The pooling water is a perennial problem for part of the Columbia Valley, but that doesn’t make it any easier to swallow. Maple Falls Road resident Wendy Winterton said she is fed up with the flooding that occurs almost every year on her street. She’s kept a log over the years and has noticed the water tends to start pooling after the heavy rains arrive after a snowfall, and it fills the local creeks to bursting. “Right now it’s coming out of the creek pretty good. We’ve been trying to get this addressed,” she said. “I’ve contacted every agency I can think of but everyone just passes the buck.” She’s wrote to B.C. Transportation Minister Shirley Bond recently about the situation, but to no avail. The water rushes down a local creek bed and collects in a pool and then spreads across and down the road. It’s been going on for more than 20 years, said Winterton, and they’ve even lost friendships over it. Sometimes the backedup water is more than a metre high, which keeps people home from work, out of their vehicles, and keeps school bus drivers away from the area. Because the Winterton home is above the floodplain, it stays dry. But getting

Community Living it was a nobrainer to get involved. The non-profit organization supports adults and children with developmental disabilities. It operates out of several facilities throughout the city. And while it’s held earthquake drills at individual sites, it’s never done a mass drill through all the sites at the same time. “We want to see how well we respond as an organization,” said Jeff Gilbank, CSCL director. “Our hope is for our staff and clients to learn what to do in a more intuitive sense, instead of running for the manual, because in a real earthquake, they’re not going to be able to do that.” Anyone interested in participating can register online at www. shakeoutbc.ca. kbartel@theprogress.com

Skill tests start to stir controversy Katie Bartel The Progress

Maple Falls Road in the Columbia Valley was a lake following the recent heavy rains – something residents there say is a regular occurrence. But finding a solution isn’t that easy, says the FVRD. GREG KNILL/ PROGRESS

around is another story. “When it happens I can’t get out of my driveway. I can’t drive my car through it. I couldn’t get to work earlier this week,” Winterton said. Although the Ministry of Transportation has the responsibility for maintaining the roadway, it is located in FVRD territory. Part of the problem may be linked to some landclearing undertaken a few years ago on private property, which exposed the soil, and allowed silt to flow into the area with the runoff. Complicating the issue

is the fact that the ‘kettle,’ which is a natural draining mechanism for the runoff water is also on private property, and not on Crown land. There is no simple answer, said Lynn Orstad, FVRD emergency program director. The houses are safe, but access becomes an issue. But even if the FVRD obtained permission to have the kettle dug out, a job estimated to cost $80,000, the drainage mechanism could become blocked permanently, if the exact source of the problem is not found, or

if it was filled in with lime- terms of the funding availstone silt. able from the Provincial “Then we would have a Emergency Program. lake,” said Orstad. “The only way to qualify For now, all they can do is to declare a state of local is continue to monitor the emergency.

Chilliwack teachers fear the wrong message is getting out regarding the Foundation Skills Assessment test after the Minister of Education wrote an open letter to parents on her MLA website. Last Friday, Education Minister Margaret MacDiarmid posted the letter urging parents to ensure their child writes this year’s FSA. The FSA is an annual province-wide assessment of students’ academic skills in reading comprehension, writing and numeracy in Grades 4 and 7. In the letter, MacDiarmid said the purpose of the FSA is to provide parents and teachers with a snapshot of how students are performing across the province. She also noted a strong correlation between a child’s FSA scores and their future success in completing school. “As a parent, you have the right to know how your child is performing and the FSA is an essential tool to help students achieve positive educational outcomes,” MacDiarmid wrote. However, while Katharin Midzain, president of the Chilliwack Teachers’ Association, isn’t opposed to the FSA as a general assessment tool, she is opposed to the results being used in a “harmful” way.

People coming in with memberships, stacks of them, thousands of memberships... ~ Harry Lali

gal action consider legal if his complaint is not upheld. Lali said rules were distributed to all leadership candidates, specifying that each new membership form have the member’s donation attached, to help ensure that people have paid their own membership fees. “People coming in with memberships, stacks of them, thousands of memberships, and other people coming in with the money, in bags and envelopes, little handbags,” Lali told reporters at the leg-

Wedne islature Wednesday. Port Coquitlam MLA Mike Farnworth’s campaign also lodged a complaint about membership sales, but going into a party caucus meeting, Farnworth had little to say about the situation. “My campaign did file an objection and so the rules committee will be dealing with that,” Farnworth said. O’Brien said the rules did specify that membership fees must be attached to each application. But in the ruling released to candidates, she stated “the

central point of the 5 p.m. deadline on Jan. 17 is to ensure that the membership forms are at the provincial office by that time. There is a recognition that it may not be possible to complete the processing in one day and there is provision for continuing the processing of the forms in the following days.” Lali said the questionable memberships were brought in by members of the South Asian and Filipino communities in Vancouver. He denounced the “abuse and manipulation” of Indo-Canadian members, and compared it to questionable sign-ups for the NDP’s leadership campaign 11 years ago. Dix said he was aware that many of the new members signed up by his campaign had made their donations in cash.

News Dix ‘preferred’ in Chilliwack Robert Freeman The Progress Adrian Dix appears to be the preferred leadership candidate among New Democrats in the Chilliwack riding. “I would say there’s a greater preference for Adrian Dix,” than others in the leadership race, Chilliwack NDP riding president Cliff Roulston said Monday. Not only is Dix the “shining light of the party,” Roulston said, but he doesn’t have the added baggage of a “certain amount of animosity” that lingers in Chilliwack toward candidates who were among those who refused to stand up for Rollie Keith during his run for election here in 2005. Keith resigned as the party’s Chilliwack candidate just as the election was getting underway, after some politically-charged comments he made earlier to The Progress became widely known. Although Keith “officially” resigned, it was clear that none of his NDP colleagues would stand by him on the campaign trail after it became known that he had refused to join the politically correct crowd baying for the blood of Slobodan Milosevic. The Serbian president, also known as the ‘Butcher of the Balkans,’ was tried for war crimes for alleged atrocities during the break-up of Yugoslavia in the 1990s. Keith, a retired tank commander and a lifelong New Democrat, had testified at Milosevic’s trial as a member of a verification team sent into the region to monitor a peace agreement in 1999. Retired Major General Lewis

MacKenzie later said that Keith was the victim of a “smear” campaign, that came as a result of writing an “accurate and balanced” report of the situation in Yugoslavia, and his treatment became “an embarrassing black mark for (the NDP).” Keith “still has a certain following in the constituency,” Roulston said. Dix joined the leadership race Monday just as the party’s cut-off date for signing members arrived. He joined declared candidates MLAs Harry Lali, Mike Farnworth, John Horgan and Nicholas Simons. But NDP election rules have been the focus of most media coverage of the party’s leadership race to date, the latest being Lali’s threat to take legal action over the bulk sign-up of new members. Lali earlier complained about the “ridiculous” fees the party imposed on leadership candidates, favouring those with deeper pockets. “This begs the question: Who is it that the party does not want to run for leader?” he asked in a news release. But Roulston said it has “almost always been more expensive” to run as an NDP candidate. “We don’t have corporate donations,” he said, and the party is still paying off its last election debt. He said half of everything raised by local NDP associations goes to the provincial office. “The party is almost bankrupt,” he said. “If the election debt was paid, and membership still growing, Carole James would still be the leader of the party,” he said.

A local teen’s position on a surgical wait-list might have been bumped up a few notches. Chilliwack mom Amy Niiranen said she had a “successful” meeting recently with officials from B.C. Children’s Hospital on the general topic of wait times for pediatric surgery. Her 17-year-old son, Donovan, is in line for a 10-hour operation to correct a painful double spinal curve condition from scoliosis, and had been told he might have to wait another year to get it. But they’re not holding their breath. Local Shriners contacted the family last fall and generously offered to pay for the teen’s surgery in the U.S. and get it done more quickly. Donovan and his mom travelled this week to the Shriners Hospital in Portland, Oregon, on the Shriners bus, for their first consultation with the surgeons. Niiranen, who is a registered nurse, said their preference is to have the operation in Canada, and she’s encouraged by the progress being made on the home front. “Children’s Hospital has

listened and taken the recommendations of the Operational Review done for Spinal Surgery and have just this week moved forward with doubling the OR time for both spinal surgeons, meaning four surgeries per week will be performed.” She was told Children’s Hospital officials are actively recruiting a third spinal sur-

geon and anesthesiologists and have enough ICU beds for these additional surgeries. “With this in place and being number 31 on the list at four surgeries per week we could have surgery here within eight weeks,” said Niiranen. Donovan has already been waiting for more than a year with his life on hold, and is

eager to start the process as soon as possible. “Ideally we’d do it here, as they are providing a minimally invasive procedure. We’re cautiously optimistic, but we don’t know yet if it’s just lip service being paid about the improvements, or there is really going to be some movement on the wait list.”

News

Gravel pit exceeded permit Robert Freeman The Progress A stop work order at a gravel pit on top of Vedder Mountain for removing more gravel than permitted has been lifted by the BC Mines Ministry. Opponents claimed the overproduction was intended to “create a crisis” of increased truck traffic on Cultus Lake Road to justify a proposal now before the ministry to replace the trucks with a conveyor We system to haul gravel down the mountainside. But pit owner Brian Kirkness said the permit level was exceeded to meet two unusually large contracts for gravel - Evans Road and the Eagle Landing mall - and was not part of some continuing business strategy. Kirkness said he was “very surprised” by the order as the ministry was informed about the amount of gravel being removed from the site. “We were always open and honest about our production,” he said. Kirkness said the order was lifted last Friday, but he declined comment on any remedial actions required by the ministry. A ministry official said

“enhanced monitoring” will be required, but he could not provide details of any further remedial measures by Thursday’s deadline. Victor Froese, a spokesman for the Vedder Mountain Preservation Group, said the over-production was discovered through freedom of information requests made to the City of Chilliwack.

posal to build the conveyor system to reduce traffic. He also said the City, which approved the quarry and receives a fee for gravel removal, should have known about the over-production. “In essence, the City approved its own traffic problem,” he said, while simply restricting the company to its permit level would cut truck traffic by half. But Mayor Sharon Gaetz said the City’s involvement in the gravel pit is limited to receiving a were always open and honest monthly declaration about our production of how much gravel is removed, and a ~ Brian Kirkness cheque covering the removal fee. “We were not even aware of the amount of (Kirkness’s) provincial “We wanted to figure out some permit until a month ago,” she way of quantifying what the said in an email. “We have abso(truck) traffic was,” he said. lutely no role in the provincial According to Froese, partial permit, so we have never added records for 2010 showed 234,682 up each month’s total as we have cubic metres were removed, no need to monitor it.” double the amount allowed by Kirkness said he doesn’t permit. believe the stop work order will He said a similar over-produc- have an impact on his proposal, tion was recorded in 2008, but the which he maintained will not disCity refused to release records turb surrounding Crown lands for 2009 citing confidentiality. and will help reduce carbon Froese said the “huge amount” emissions. of increased production would “We’re doing what the governobviously increase truck traf- ment wants industry to do,” he fic on Cultus Lake Road, which said. rfreeman@theprogress.com would bolster the Kirkness pro-

Save $2 million by quitting the FVRD, says Abbotsford chamber Neil Corbett Black Press Abbotsford should get out of the Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD), and save almost $2 million per year. That’s the position of the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce, which decided at a Tuesday night meeting to lobby the city to withdraw. Chamber executive director David D. Hull said he expects the city to look favourably on the recommendation, and “we’ll march arm-inarm to Victoria,” where the provincial government would be asked to approve the move. The chamber’s government affairs committee produced an eight-page report, concluding that Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Mission are contributing an inordinate amount for services to people living in rural areas in the farflung district, which covers almost 14,000 square kilometres. From the U.S. border, it stretches northward almost to

Whistler in its western reaches, taking in all of Harrison Lake, and past the Nahatlatch River in the east. “The City of Abbotsford contributed a few dollars short of two and half million dollars to the FVRD,” said chamber president Patricia Sapielak in a press release. “It appears that the only real value or service the city receives is E911 and fire dispatch worth a little over half a million dollars. We think there is up to two million dollars the city could save annually.” Hull said Abbotsford has contributed $1.1 million toward FVRD general government and administration, another $203,000 for air quality management, and $273,000 for regional development services. He said all of these budget items would appear to be of dubious value to Abbotsford taxpayers. Meanwhile, they are paying a greater share of the taxation for the region, based on

higher property assessments in Abbotsford compared to places like Yale and Boston Bar. Lowering property taxes for Abbotsford businesses was the chamber’s motivation to look at the issue. Regional districts are a governance model that may have made sense in the 1960s, but a new funding model must be found for services in rural communities, Hull asserted, and it should not add to property taxes in urban areas. Abbotsford Coun. Patricia Ross is also the FVRD chair. While she appreciates the chamber reviewing the cost of local government, she said the regional district would like to discuss the issue. “There are a lot of implications. It’s always more complicated than it seems at first blush,” said Ross. In a statement of response, she said: “While we respect their perspective, we do not necessarily agree with their conclusions.

“The Regional District has, and continues to, work on improving services, reducing costs and ensuring a fair and equitable allocation of those costs across the region. We work closely with our member municipalities, including the City of Abbotsford, on a number of common issues and concerns. Many of these have been discussed in closed or incamera sessions of the board, therefore are not for public discussions at this time,” said Ross. Coun. John Smith is the city’s liaison to the chamber, and also attends the government affairs committee meetings. He said its members are “sharp business people” and have identified an issue that needs to be looked at. He was doubtful that there would be $2 million in savings. “I don’t know about their math. I think that’s a very high figure,” said Smith. “But even if it’s a million bucks, we should be saving it if we can.”

Grow-op gardeners hope to avoid jail Robert Freeman The Progress Six low-level employees caught in the second-largest grow-op bust ever made by the Chilliwack RCMP sat quietly in provincial court Wednesday as a French-language interpreter translated their lawyers’ pleas for a conditional sentence. But a 12-month jail term for each is what the federal Crown is seeking, noting that without their tending and harvesting the marijuana plants, the growop couldn’t work. “It’s not my position that any of the six are the ultimate benefactors of the property,” Crown counsel John Walker said. “But nevertheless, they are essential to the criminality in a similar way that drug couriers are essential to moving product. If there weren’t people like that ... growops would not occur.” All six accused have pleaded guilty to charges of producing marijuana for trafficking purposes. Meanwhile, the

The Nixon Road grow-op was one of two large operations discovered by police in the area.

owner of the grow-op, and the owner of another grow-op located in an underground bunker next door - the largest ever taken down by the Chilliwack drug section - are still at large. A 61-year-old man, arrested at the Nixon Road property where the bunker grow-op was discovered, appeared in a different courtroom Wednesday. Darr yl Francis Ness is also charged with producing marijuana for trafficking purposes. Walker said outside the courtroom there is no evidence linking the two operations, and it

appears “purely coincidental” the two largest grow-ops ever found in Chilliwack were next door to each other. Police investigating the bunker grow-op on Sept. 9, 2009, discovered a large amount of electricity being consumed on the property next door. A search warrant was obtained the next day, and five of the accused were arrested in an outbuilding where they tended over 4,000 marijuana plants. Walker said in court that the grow-op was capable of making the owner $1.8 million every three months.

The six accused, all originally from Quebec, insisted they made only “a few hundred dollars” for two or three days clipping and watering the plants. Defence lawyers argued for conditional sentences noting their clients pose no threat to the community, have expressed “great remorse” and pleaded guilty early. The lawyers also noted that in earlier court cases, most accused in similar circumstances were given conditional sentences, and that the size of grow-op in Chilliwack a should not affect the judge’s decision. All but one accused said they could not identify the owner of the grow-op as they were hired and paid by a third party. The six accused, each facing financial stress, said they were lured into the job without realizing the risk. The lawyer for Regis J. Bilodeau, 53, said a jail sentence would end the custom sauna business he had started.

Comment online at www.theprogress.com

“I feel ashamed from this situation,” Bilodeau told Judge Jill Rounthwaite. “If I go to jail, it’s the end of my business.” Bilodeau, Robert J.H. Fontaine, 50, Albert J. Gery, 71, Raymond J. Lavoie, 50, Lyse M. Leclerc, 51, and Claudette M Montinimy, 53 will be sentenced at a later date.

Nearly killing a man draws a sentence of one year in prison A 24-year-old Chilliwack man has been sent to jail for one year after nearly killing a man in a stabbing incident here last June. Thomas Charles Kipp was also sentenced to two years on probation under “stringent” conditions set by a B.C. Supreme Court Justice on Dec. 8. Kipp was found guilty of aggravated assault and assault with a weapon for the June 19 attack of a 41-year-old man during a dispute on Bole Avenue. Justice Brian Joyce said in his reasons for judgment that Kipp “is fortunate that the stabbing of his victim did not result in a

death, and that he is not facing more serious repercussions than he is.” Joyce felt the 18-month jail sentence recommended by both defence and Crown counsel was at the “low end of the scale,” but accepted it in light of the twoyear probation term also recommended, and because of Kipp’s chances for rehabilitation. “Mr. Kipp has had an unfortunate background,” Joyce said. “He has been caught up in the world of illicit drugs and alcohol abuse for a long time now.” “However, Mr. Kipp is a relatively young man,”Joyce added,

“... and certainly at an age where the prospects of rehabilitation must obviously be considered.” Kipp spent about six months in custody before his trial, but instead of two-for-one credit, which would have reduced his jail time ever more, Joyce said he was only entitled to one-for-one credit under a new sentencing law now in effect. Kipp’s probation terms include living at a residential treatment centre for drug and alcohol recovery; a ban on possessing any weapons and no contact with his victim.

It’s almost impossible not to be touched and amazed by the story of Ted Williams. Williams is a homeless ex-radio announcer in Columbus, Ohio whose life has been changed by a moment of fame on the Internet. A journalist with the Columbus Dispatch newspaper had passed by the lanky, disheveled panhandler en route to work a number of times. He was intrigued by the man’s cardboard sign, on which he’d scrawled that God had given him a “golden voice” and he just needed a little help getting back on his feet. The journalist pulled over one day, turned on his video camera and told Williams he’d have to “work for his dollar.” Williams’ silky smooth baritone and pitch-perfect delivery were a marked contrast to the wild, unkempt hair, craggy, weathered face and discoloured teeth. His voice softened when he told his story of a once-promising career and life derailed by drug and alcohol addiction and then expressed his hope for a break so he could get off the streets for good. The journalist sat on the story for five weeks. In the avalanche of news coverage leading up to Christmas, he didn’t think it was particularly remarkable. But in the news lull that often follows the holidays, he posted his short video to the Dispatch’s website. The video went viral. Since then, Williams’ life has become a whirlwind of haircuts, job offers, auditions and media appearances on national morning TV shows, the evening news and late-night talk shows. He was reunited with his 92-year-old mother from whom he’d been estranged for 30 years. The homeless walk among us. As we go about our busy lives, it’s easy to just pass by as they reach out for our help from the sidewalk or doorways. But Ted Williams’ story reminds us that they’re all human, they all have people in their lives who care for them, worry about them, and they all once had hopes and aspirations, probably still do. Ted Williams’ spotlight may flare out, as most media sensations do, but his lesson of humanity will endure. ~ Black Press

Recall campaign descends into ugly farce VICTORIA – The rough beast of recall has slouched into Kamloops and Comox, carrying with it the rank smell of the failing effort in Oak Bay. Next up in this venomous venture is Vernon, starting on March 15, Fight HST maestro Bill Vander Zalm vowed in a swing through the unlucky North Okanagan city last week. “More canvassers are signing up in Oak Bay-Gordon Head to help put recall over the top there,” Vander Zalm bragged in a news release describing a standingroom-only crowd in Vernon. “We had a terrific meeting in a snowy Kamloops last night with 45 canvassers to kick off that campaign, and now this! It’s faaaaantastic!” This is a change to Vander Zalm’s tune on the bid to muscle out Science and Universities Minister Ida Chong. The previous week he posted an open letter

to supporters pleading for money and volunteers, while conceding that the cherry-picked swing constituency in suburban Victoria was still less than halfway to its goal with time running out. Former Social Credit attorney general Brian Smith and former NDP premier Dan Miller both spoke out to denounce this anti-tax recall Tom as inappropriate. Smith told me FLETCHER about Oak Bay residents being approached repeatedly after refusing to sign the Chong petition. He called it “abuse.” But apparently Chong’s central message is getting through: getting rid of her won’t get rid of the harmonized sales tax. In Kamloops-North Thompson,

where MLA Terry Lake is the strategic swing-riding target, the NDP-affiliated organizer told <I>Kamloops This Week</I> he was concerned about recall canvassers being diverted to work on NDP leadership campaigns. Nope, nothing partisan there. As the U.S. pondered the role of angry, threatening rhetoric in politics, B.C.’s acting Chief Electoral Officer Craig James was invited on CKNW radio to describe the hate mail he received after rejecting the first version of the Oak BayGordon Head petition for having too many words. (This delayed it for all of a week.) There were hundreds of e-mails to this mild-mannered legislature clerk, urged on by a typical screed sent out by Fight HST demanding his resignation. One of the milder missives wished James a slow death from cancer. More serious threats and death wishes prompt-

ed police to provide security to his home and the Elections BC office. Fight HST ringmaster Chris Delaney, along with the NDPaffiliated recall organizer for Oak Bay, downplayed this. Delaney suggested the timing was suspicious, as per his earlier baseless attacks on James’ impartiality. Vander Zalm also muttered about the government working with James and unspecified elements of the “Big Corporate Media” to scuttle the recall. This is the latest vision to emerge from the Fight HST clown car of conspiracy theories. Previous scenarios featured Canada being taken over by the European Union, and the shopworn plot to impose world government in the name of global warming. Delaney continues his frantic efforts to launch the B.C. First Party, which is coincidentally being developed in tandem with

the recall campaign. In his role as B.C. First “spokesman,” Delaney recently cranked out a new conspiracy. The B.C. Liberals are forcing BC Hydro to undertake expensive repairs to dams and transmission facilities, not to expand or prevent further blackouts in downtown Vancouver, but to make BC Hydro go broke! Then they’re going to sell it off to General Electric! This is a variation on a loopy theory advanced by Rafe Mair, wherein Gordon Campbell plots to dam the Fraser River and then sell Hydro off to GE. NDP leadership candidates would be wise to follow Miller’s lead and distance themselves from this increasingly toxic exercise.

Stocking up on candles On Friday, Jan. 7 the Chilliwack Progress carried an article on page 3 by Jeff Nagel. As a taxpayer I will likely never have a say as to whether incandescent light bulbs are made available to those of us with medical problems. They are vitally important to myself and at least 20 per cent of the population who require them for medical reasons. The fluorescent bulbs have the potential to cause problems such as stroke. Incandescent bulbs in our homes are not just a wish, or

choice, they are a must. What will happen is this: I will go out and locate a Coleman lantern, or lamp just in case I need it. If my supply of incandescent bulbs is in an earthquake or other disaster I will need a gas lamp or candles. I have a large box of candles. I grew up with gas lamps and candles and I feel quite unsafe with them as my main lighting. They are prone to causing fires. I won’t be complaining because no one listens to such important health complaints. I will be using candles and gas lighting when

Local roller derby a great workout I enjoyed reading the article on Abbotsford Roller Derby team the Reign Valley Vixens (Exercise and stress release on wheels, Progress, Jan. 18) - well written Sardis senior student! I myself want to catch a game in the near future, especially since I’ve just started training for a Roller Derby team here in Chilliwack! Yes, that’s right - here in Chilliwack and we are looking for new members to join. I had no experience but have picked it up quite fast and I encourage anyone interested to come out and give it a try – we’re a nice group of ladies. (Such a good workout) Stop by this Sunday Jan. 23rd from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Agrec 45530 Spadina Ave. and meet us. But spaces are limited.

‘Courteous capital’ The new year is upon us and global warming is in the air. On the down side traffic in our city is definitely an increasing problem but there is something each one of us can do to improve this situation. Starting today let’s each resolve to be more courteous either as drivers or pedestrians. For those on foot be alert for opportunities to be of help to those who are older or perhaps have difficulty with walking. For drivers, be willing to give up your “right of way” when another driver is less than tolerant. Forget trying to beat that traffic light. Stop well away from the cross walk and wave that pedestrian across with a smile. Offer a ride to that elderly person with an arm load of parcels. Let’s begin today to make Chilliwack the “courteous capital” of the nation. Have a safe, happy and courteous year.

necessary. The fact is that myself and others like me should have a medical exemption and a reasonably easy access to all manner of incandescent bulbs. When babies and children start having serious vascular problems, what then? Will we ignore the medical problems and pretend that we do not know what is causing their vascular illnesses?

Seussical the Musical draws applause The Chilliwack School of Performing Arts has done it again. Their current production Seussical the Musical is outstanding. The energy and enthusiasm of the young performers is beyond belief. Their activity, demonstrated in this production by the dancing, singing and high speed gymnastics, must burn up more calories than the whole of the 2010 Winter Olympics. You have to see it to believe it. One unusual thing I noticed was how the younger, pre-teen members of the audience reacted during our attendance at the opening night show. They appeared to be completely entranced by the non-stop action and colour. From start to finish they were totally caught up in the drama of this dynamic performance. The play is running until January 23 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. If your kids like action and a good story this performance is well worthwhile. Jack and Rene Carradice Chilliwack

Bravo CSOPA! We had the pleasure of attending Seussical the Musical yesterday. We were incredibly impressed with the quality of the performance! The set and costuming was amazing, the music inspired and the young performers magical. We are so fortunate to have wonderful theatre in this community, and a beautiful new arts centre to host it. If you haven’t seen Seussical yet or other local theatre productions, I encourage you to check it out. You won’t be disappointed. These young people have a very bright future. Bravo, CSOPA!

The new Chilliwack secondary school isn’t going to be your regular bricks-and-mortar school. Yes, it will have classrooms, but it will also feature a teaching kitchen, community training space and distance education resources under the one roof. Fifteen per cent of the school will be devoted to a Neighbourhood Learning Centre with space for community and aboriginal services. “The inclusion of this space in the Chilliwack secondary school project will enable us to bring community partners into direct daily contact with our students and will support students, families and elders in learning together,” said Doug McKay, chair of the Chilliwack board of education.

Jessica Peters Black Press Kent Institution was locked down Monday, to allow staff to search for drugs. The lockdown is due to a recent spate of drug seizures and drug activity within the maximum security prison, in Agassiz. Officials said in a press release Monday that the search is expected to take about seven days. They’ll be looking methodically throughout the prison, including cells and inmates. Scheduled visits are being curtailed and those who have previously scheduled visits are asked to phone the institution with their enquires. The prison’s press release says the full scale search is a part of Correctional Service Canada’s Transformation Agenda, which is attempting to strengthen measures to prevent contraband from entering institutions. CSC has even set up a special tip line inside prisons in the Pacific Region. The toll-free tip line is anonymous, and available by calling 1-866-780-3784.

FSA results are shared with the Fraser Institute, which publicly ranks B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s private and public schools based on the results. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use one test to rank a school,â&#x20AC;? Midzain said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The FSA doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t show the whole life of the school. It will not show you the amazing job Central elementary did with Hunger for Halloween last year or that Central was responsible for raising $30,000 for Haiti last year, but it will show you that Central has high-need students.â&#x20AC;? In recent years, the BC Teachersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Federation has led a campaign against the FSAs encouraging parents to withdraw their children from the test. In Chilliwack, approximately 16 per cent of Grade 4 students and 25 per cent of Grade 7 students didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t write the test last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal is to invalidate the Fraser Institute,â&#x20AC;? said Midzain. Province-wide administration of the FSA tests started on Monday and will continue until Feb. 25.

SURREY CO.

Three face charges following drug bust on Princess Avenue Drugs and tools of the drug trade were seized at a Princess Avenue apartment unit Wednesday by Chilliwack RCMP. Six people were arrested and about $3,000 to $4,000 worth of various illegal drugs were seized as members of the RCMP drug section executed a search warrant at about 7:30 p.m. “Three people are currently facing charges while the investigation continues,” Cpl. Lea-Anne Dunlop said. Police found 40 “drug bags” containing marijuana joints, crack cocaine, crystal meth and heroin inside the apartment and on the persons arrested. Scales, score sheets, surveillance equipment, bear spray and numerous other items related to the drug trade were also seized. A no-occupancy permit was post-

One 34-year-old Chilliwack woman is facing charges of drug possession and trafficking, and two others, age 32 and 36, also of Chilliwack, are facing charges of possession of a controlled substance. All have been released on a promise to appear in court on May 17. The police investigation continues, and more charges may be made. Dunlop said the apartment unit was known to police, and she urged Chilliwack residents to call police if they suspect a drug house in their neighbourhood. The Chilliwack RCMP detachment can be reached at 792-4611. Crime Stoppers can be reached at 1-800-222-TIPS.

Thornton Road resident Jim Williamson underlined there are many underground springs on the hillside, which tend to bubble up to the road surfaces on occasion. “So what are you going to do? Now we have to drive all the way around the other way. We were told the work could take a couple of weeks.” There could be safety concerns, too. “There are quite a few elders up here in this area,” Thornton added. “If they needed emergency medical attention it could be an issue.”

hen Italian explorer Giovanni Caboto (John Cabot) stepped onto Canadian soil in June 1497, there was no doubt that Italians would have a great influence on Canadian history. Let’s fast forward to 1947. World War II had ended and Canada removed the ‘enemy alien’ designation where Italy was concerned meaning that Italians could begin leaving their warimpoverished country for opportunities in Canada. When they arrived, many Italian immigrants worked on railways, road construction, mines and factories while some settled in cities and began working in retail. In Canada, Italian culture had been around for at least a century but an influx of new immigrants meant that the culture began to be showcased. Italian grocers and wholesalers began to spring up and Canadians became familiar with Italian lifestyle and products. Joey Beltrano’s parents emigrated from

Italy in 1959 and settled in Kamloops. His father began working for CN as a labourer and eventually moved up into the position of Road Master, where he would check the rails from Kamloops to Blue River. When Joey was growing up it was all about family. “We were a typical immigrant family that way. We would get together with our grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins and take in all kinds of activities together,” he said. As was generally the case with immigrants, they essentially lived the one hundred mile diet. “We grew our own vegetables, made our own wine, sausages, tomato sauce, pasta and that sort of stuff. My mom and dad worked hard each and every day to try and give us a good life. The way that I look at it, if I can be half the man that my father was, I will have made it. He’s an inspiration to me,” he said proudly. Growing up in Kamloops was a dream

for a young boy. Joey remembers a great childhood. He enjoyed the outdoors and was active in sports especially soccer and boxing, in his teenage years. He had dreams of becoming a lawyer or perhaps getting into the design aspect of theatre. Then again, Ana the hospitality MACEDO industry had a certain appeal. After graduating from high school, Joey left for Simon Fraser University where he was hoping to get his business degree. After leaving Simon Fraser, he decided to head back to Kamloops and along with three of his cousins opened up Joey’s Cellar. Owning a restaurant was hard work and an eye opener and after a couple of years, they decided to sell it. Regardless, Joey had learned some valu-

able business lessons and quickly found out that he was hooked on the hospitality industry. “Once you’re in that industry, you can’t leave,” he laughed. He left for Vancouver and began working for the Aquilini Investment Group, taking on the job of Director of Food and Beverage at the Atrium Inn which is now a Holiday Inn Express. Eventually, he decided to leave Vancouver to head back to his native Kamloops where he took on a position with the Coast Canadian Inn. After a couple of years, he decided to leave the Coast chain to gain more experience in the hospitality industry. He began working for Thompson Rivers University and was responsible for everything from food to janitorial services. This allowed him to gain a solid overall perspective of the industry which was an asset when he began discussions with the chain about the possibility of opening up a hotel in Chilliwack. “From the time that I began working for the Coast Hotel, I was drawn to their core values because they were aligned with my belief system. Their

values are embedded in their corporate culture and this appealed to me. Things such as expect commitment, act with fairness, live with honour, challenge the limits and win together; this is what they’re all about,” he explained. So, when Joey was offered the opportunity of opening up the hotel here, he jumped at the prospect. “I have learned an immense amount. I have grown and it’s been such an honour to build our team. The Chilliwack Coast Hotel has 110 rooms and 80 employees and we work together as a team to make things happen. My life is all about learning and I am inspired by the ability to constantly learn,” he said enthusiastically. As with any hospitality property, hard work is the order of each day. However, family is important to Joey and he enjoys spending time with wife Kelly and daughters Chloe and Chanelle when he’s away from the office. “We love the outdoors. Chilliwack has some breathtaking mountains and we try to take advantage of this as much as we can. It’s important to work hard but you also need to take time to enjoy life,” he ended.

Subsequently, both Christian and community newspaper groups have utilized his MBA research. Since retiring from active newspaper development, Mackey works from the Parliamentary Press Galler y in Ottawa. His journalistic focus has been on the faith-political interface and the role of conflict in that field. To those ends, he authored Stephen Harper, the Case for Collaborative Governance (ECW Press 2006) and Like Father, Like Son: Ernest Manning and Preston Manning (ECW Press 1997).

CLCS and UFV training new literacy tutors

The New Year brings changes for a lot of people in Chilliwack. People wish to make changes in their lives, to improve themselves, or to take a greater part in their community. The Chilliwack Learning Community Society (CLCS) makes it possible for local residents to accomplish all of these goals. The CLCS is hosting Adult Literacy Tutor Training beginning this weekend at the University of the Fraser Valley Chilliwack campus. Literacy tutors are volunteers in a unique literacy outreach program. They receive free training by UFV and then are matched with an adult learner in the community. Learners come with We look for all different kinds of backgrounds â&#x20AC;&#x201C; some tutors of all ages are new immigrants, and backgrounds some are people who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t complete their â&#x20AC;&#x201C; our youngest is Grade 12, some are just out of high families wishing to improve their literschool and our acy skills, some are adults returning to oldest ones are school to complete retirees academic goals. Learners and tutors ~ Debbie work together in oneon-one pairs, in small Denault groups, or in classrooms. Sometimes tutors are integrated into community programs and become available to assist people on an â&#x20AC;&#x153;as neededâ&#x20AC;? basis. Debbie Denault, the Community Literacy Coordinator for the CLCS, matches learners with tutors, and tutors with programs. The matching process takes into consideration the preferences, skills and availability of learners and tutors, as well as the needs of the organization. Denault says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tutors are given a free training program which includes information about how adults learn to read and write, how we learn to learn, how to help people set and meet their learning goals, what volunteers need to know about volunteering, and more. We look for tutors of all ages and backgrounds â&#x20AC;&#x201C; our youngest is just out of high school and our oldest ones are retirees.â&#x20AC;? Michael Berger, Workplace Essential Skills Coordinator for the CLCS, says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;There is an ongoing need for additional literacy tutors in Chilliwack. One of the areas that tutors have proven useful is in the workplace. As more immigrants join the local workforce, having a literacy tutor available can help make them more productive at work.â&#x20AC;? This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s training begins with an on-line self-study course followed by a training day on Saturday, Jan. 22 at the UFV Chilliwack Yale Road campus. For more information about becoming a literacy tutor or to register for the training, please contact Debbie Denault at 604-792-0025 ext. 2434 or debbied@ chilliwacklear ning. business banking | insurance services com.

an appointment. Since many cellar doors don’t open before 11 a.m., there’s time for breakfast in Adelaide before a slow, scenic drive through the countryside, enjoying the look of the region before stopping to try its taste. The Barossa has names of global fame, such as Wolf Blass, Peter Lehmann and Penfolds, but in between the big estates lie many smaller, family-run vineyards selling mainly through the cellar door and offering tastings, free advice and an unpretentious atmosphere. Tastings are usually free, except for “museum-released” stock of past triumphs and now of limited availability. Some winemakers also sell wine by the glass, as well as offering cheese plates and other accompaniments. Since alcohol volumes often reach 15 per cent, drivers who choose to drink rather than just taste and spit need to be cautious—pausing for a vineyard-produced light lunch is a good idea.

Barossa’s cellar doors beckon wine lovers WINE from p22 own grapes, and 70 per cent of this modest production is sold directly to visitors. The winery’s weekend concerts are big draws, but the traditional, tinroofed homestead has comfortable sofas at any time and there’s a lawn dotted with sunshades, tables and chairs at which to enjoy a glass of potent Reserve shiraz or a fruity Audrey May semillon. The cellar door at Eden Valley’s Glen Eldon vineyard is a bright metal shed with a wooden walkway up to a quiet tasting room overlooking the vineyard. Downstairs, grapes are crushed and wine fermented, leaving plenty of space upstairs to try the results of these efforts, and especially the flagship shiraz, dark

and fruity and likely to taste even better if taken home and left alone for a few years. Visitors typically take half a case, at a modest saving over Adelaide shop prices. Rockford Wines occupies brick farm buildings from 1857, where Robert O’Callaghan makes wine from the fruit of 30 growers who use traditional handrearing methods in keeping with the antique basket presses at the winery. In the Southern Hemisphere’s autumn months of March and April these can be seen spewing juice from between their slats. Great lakes of liquid and pulp are stored in century-old vats made from local slate, filling the air with the yeasty smell of fermentation underway. O’Callaghan not only produces one of Australia’s best shi-

razes, but a wine from the obscure alicante bouschet grape, whose naturally red flesh produces a crisp rosé that makes perfect summer drinking. But it’s only available at the cellar door. Explore More:

ike a good spring house cleaning, a thorough pruning can make your garden look clean and fresh at this time of year. It can also improve the health of your trees as well as improve the quality of fruits and flowering. The problem for many folks, however, is knowing what to prune and how far back to prune it. Well, the art of pruning is 90 percent common sense and observation and 10 percent experience and knowledge, acquired by simply getting out and doing it. Many good books on the subject are available, but for simplicity, I suggest ‘The Pruning Specialist’ by David Squire, New Holland Publishers. The first thing you need to know is the type of pruning equipment to use. Hand shears are the most useful garden tool you can have. It really does not matter whether you purchase the scissor type (sometimes called ‘bypass’ shears) or the anvil type. My advice is to get a good quality pair for which you can purchase replacement blades. A lot of very inexpensive models are out there, but in my experience, they just do not stand up. Quality, medium to high-priced shears will pay for themselves many times over. Remember too: shears are only meant for smaller branches, usually 3/8 inch (6 mm) or less in thickness. Unless it is very soft wood, once you get into thicker branches you really should be using two-handed loppers. Loppers, like shears, are available in the bypass or anvil styles, and in all price ranges. My comments on quality apply here, too. Make sure the loppers you purchase have replaceable

The problem for many folks, however, is knowing what to prune and how far back to prune it, writes Brian Minter blades, or are made of drop forged, quality steel that can be sharpened. Today you can get extendable handles to reach up further into trees, helping you to avoid ladders. Loppers can be used for branches up to 1-1/2 inches (3.5 cm) in caliper. For large branches, you need a good pruning saw. You can purchase either straight or curved blades, depending on personal preference. Some types fold in for convenience, while others come with handy sheaths that fit on your belt. The key to a quality pruning saw is good steel and well designed teeth with serrations in opposite directions. This is especially important for cutting green, wet wood. If you have massive evergreen plantings, you may choose to purchase a good electric or motorized trimmer. Electric ones are only effective on standard cords up to 100 feet long, so beyond that you should be using motorized trimmers. With only a few evergreens, you will find two-handled grass clippers the best bet. As long as you stay in the softer growth from the previous season, these will do the job nicely. If you are the proud owner of tall trees with even taller branches that elude you with a ladder, then you will find pole pruners the answer. After fighting branches with 10 and 12 foot

pruners, I have found the adjustable types far easier to handle. They also come with a saw blade for getting at branches too awkward or too large to cut. I notice that folks who have a great many older and larger trees are using chain saws for pruning. For larger branches it is a good deal easier and faster, but novices should get the feel of using these saws by practising on fallen branches on the ground first. On ladders, make sure of your stability, and wear goggles to protect your eyes. Remember to keep all your shears clean by dipping them in a solution of one part bleach to 10 parts water. It is also very important to make your cuts with the blade cutting upward to prevent larger branches from tearing the bark as they fall. Always make a cut on the underside first, then move the blade over 1/4 inch (4 mm.) on top to get a clean cut every time. The only other important thing to remember when cutting branches is to cut them on a shallow angle just above a bud. This will prevent water from seeping in, will prevent die-backs on the branch, and will direct new growth in the direction of the bud. Next week I am going to explain the basics of pruning flowering shrubs, evergreens, flowering trees and shade trees, and the week after, fruit trees.

BC Hydro is getting ready to install “smart meters” across the province that will tell customers how much electricity they’re using at different times of the day. But unlike Ontario’s smart meters, the B.C. program will not immediately come with mandatory higher rates for peak period use and lower rates for non-peak times such as late at night. In its business case for the new meters, released Tuesday, BC Hydro says customers will be offered an opportunity to choose “time of use” rates if they want them. But that promise only lasts until all the new meters are installed, by the end of 2012. The

completion date was dictated by the B.C. government’s latest energy plan, part of Premier Gordon Campbell’s effort to encourage new clean energy sources and stop net electricity imports to B.C. BC Hydro says it still in the early stages of determining its rate structure for the smart meter era, and all rate changes must be approved by the B.C. Utilities Commission. The smart meter program is budgeted to cost $930 million, including meters, wireless networks and inhome displays for customers. NDP energy critic and leadership candidate John Horgan said a new time-of-day rate structure is inevitable, but it can’t be imposed until customers have

smart meters. He continues to question the high initial cost, especially as BC Hydro raises rates and contracts with higher-cost private power producers. “If you had a billion dollars, is this the best way to spend it?” Horgan said. “And we’re looking at a 50 per cent rate increase over the next three years.” He suggested the money would be better spent helping people install energy-saving home upgrades such as insulation and doubleglazed windows. BC Hydro estimates that the smart meter program will produce a net savings of $500 million over the next 20 years, through improved reliability and efficiency as well as conservation of energy. The smart meters will report con-

sumption automatically, eliminating the need for meter readers, and the new meters will also detect power outages and electricity theft. Installation is to begin by mid-2011, and customers will receive notices along with their bills when installers are coming to their community. Once a smart meter is installed, customers with computers will be able to log into their secure BC Hydro account and see a nearly real-time display of their electricity use. After meter installation is done in 2012, BC Hydro plans to offer rebates to people who want to purchase an inhome power consumption display that sits on the wall like a thermostat.

Perspectives

Helping mould successful parents of tomorrow Most of us donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know what poor parenting is because the only gauge we have for this is what we ourselves experienced, writes Dr. Rob Lees

M

y last column addressed the issue of early childhood vulnerability â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the number of kindergarten students not ready for school. This is a key predictor for future outcomes. HELP, the Human Early Learning Partnerships at UBC found the area where kids struggle the most these days are in the domains of â&#x20AC;&#x153;social and emotional development.â&#x20AC;? This suggests there is something about what is happening in families that is not preparing children adequately for how to manage themselves. Because social and emotional development in young people is so important we need to pay attention to how we prepare young parents to be parents. (Apparently Chilliwack has double the number of teen pregnancies than the provincial average.) First, how can we expect people to parent well if their own needs arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t well looked after? Even the most mature and well supported parent can be frustrated and reactive. Add in poverty, low wages, lack of child care, and limited social supports the picture just gets worse. Then, think about

how most of us learned to be parents and partners. Mainly through observations of the role models around us. For such important functions this seems capricious. We would never think of training doctors, pilots, engineers this way. Yet we leave the emotional development of the next generation to chance. Some will get lucky and have wonderful parents. Others will have un-prepared parents who are therefore insensitive and maybe even harsh, creating angry offspring who may not even know why they are angry. It begs the question, what could we do about it? If we acted like it really mattered that people know what they are doing when they partner and then have children, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be teaching them something about it, wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we? And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d do it in a systematic way. Margaret Kind is a psychiatrist who developed a parenting course for high school students. In her view, much of the psychopathology in society, not to mention general meanness, teasing and competitiveness are a result of poor parenting. And then, most of us donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know

what poor parenting is because the only gauge we have for this is what we ourselves experienced. Kind says we need to change our attitudes about childhood. Here are four attitudes she flags as hallmarks of our problem; 1. What I do with my child is my business. This suggest that children belong to their parents, like animals, not as independent human being that belong to themselves. 2. It is OK to hit a child, whereas the same behaviour applied to an adult would be assaultâ&#x20AC;?. Goes without saying what needs to change here. 3. Yielding to a child is spoiling the child. Actually, it may signal that the child has rights and can influence their environment 4. Children forget the mistakes parents make. They may forget specific acts but the emotional memory of harsh treatment lives on as emotional scares that lead to unfounded fears or anger. Food for thought.

Ski to End MS comes to Hemlock in February Jessica Peters Black Press Most people who have MS don’t get a chance to hit the slopes. It’s just too rigorous for those who experience constant pain and fatigue. And it’s just too dangerous for those who go through loss of feeling in their limbs or vision and hearing loss. But for people who don’t suffer through those MS symptoms — and want to help those who do — skiing and snowboarding are the perfect option. Ski to End MS will be held for the first time ever at Hemlock Valley Ski Resort, hosted by the MS Society of Canada’s Fraser Valley Chapter, February 20. And all you have to do to help, is pledge yourself to spend a day on the slopes. “If you raise the minimum amount of pledges, you get a free lift ticket and rental,” said Deanna McIntyre, event organizer for the chapter. The event is run much like the Walk for MS, in which you can go online and register and download pledge forms. But the event is meant to capture the attention of a different demographic, and the same event has been popular in other areas,

society. “Given the size of our chapter area here, it shouldn’t be hard,” she said.

The Fraser Valley Chapter covers Abbotsford, Aldergrove, Chilliwack, Agassiz, Harrison Hot Springs, Hope, Boston Bar and every small community in between. She’s also hoping to draw in skiers and snowboarders from the Metro Vancouver area. Already signed up are a few of the board members for the society, she added. “I don’t know if I’ll be hitting the planks myself though,” she said. “There will be a lot of organizing to do up there.” There are different levels of pledging depending how old you are. Adults ages 19 to 64 are required to raise $150. Seniors 65 and older need $100. Youth ages 13 to 18 need to pledge $75. Children ages seven to 12 need to raise $50 and tots, ages six and under, pledge $25. Those who meet the minimum pledge amounts also will receive a discounted lunch. Anyone who has a 2010-2011 Hemlock Resort Season’s Pass can reduce their pledge minimum by 25 per cent. There are prizes at the end of the day, and all participants will receive a toque.

Local artist Maxwell Newhouse has an exhibit at the Chilliwack Art Gallery called ‘Home, Community, and Northern Wildlife’ featuring artwork from three of his children’s books. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Maxwell Newhouse hangs his work Warhol style Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Cultus Lake artist Maxwell Newhouse says the new exhibit might be his largest ever with more than 60 paintings on display in the art gallery at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. The most exciting part of it all? “The fact that I was able to hang it exactly the way I wanted, which was using a New York or Andy

fantastic and all my books sold but one or two.” All of the paintings were created from his engaging children’s books ranging from The RCMP Musical Ride, and The House That Max Built, to Let’s Go For a Ride, and The Weber Street Wonder Work Crew. Now they’re hanging in formations in the beautiful new gallery. His method was to lay all the pieces out on the floor, assemble them with plywood strips, and

It’s a large cluster of work collaged together.” Home, Community, and Northern Wildlife is the name of the show that opened last week, and Newhouse also took the opportunity to launch his brand-new work there, Counting on Snow. “It was the most successful opening reception of my whole career,” he said, adding that about 225 people showed up. “It was

There’s another striking difference in the way he has presented his work: All of it at eye level for children and shorter adults. “It’s hung for children. The paintings are lower,” Newhouse admits.

The images from Counting on Snow are lined up in frosty row that extends about 20 metres down the gallery wall. The first page in the counting book showcases 10 caribou on a clear winter’s night, using a muted palette. Then the snowstorm starts subtly, and the creatures are almost in whiteout conditions by the final page with one lone moose left, whose form is barely discernible through the Continued: ART/ p34

hood.” She’s certain the recent death of her goldfish was announced by the air-raid sirens during the days school drill. Could the spirit of her recently departed pet be re-incarnated in the form of a lost, amnesiac drifter who suddenly appears on her doorstep without warning? Iris’ parents, trapped in

the nostalgic desires of their own lost youth, are oblivious to their daughter’s childhood-formed view of life. Panych’s wry humour, which permeates the action of this fascinating piece, ensures an evening of first class live entertainment. Iris’ melancholic father, Owen, will be played by Ron Jackson,

last seen as Tom Snout in UFV’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream from last March, and the role of Lawrence, the enigmatic drifter, is filled by Josh Wilson, also last seen in A Midsummer Night’s Dream as Demetrius. Set design for this production is by Evan Hutchinson, with costume design by Laura Auffrey and lighting design by Madison McArthur and Ali Shewan. Sound designer is Andrew Meadwell and Coleen Plenert is stage manager. Girl in the Goldfish Bowl opens Friday, Jan. 21 in the Theatre on the Chilliwack campus and runs Jan. 22,27,28,29 and Feb. 3, 4 and 5 at 7.30 pm., with matinees Sunday, Jan. 30 and Feb. 6 at 2pm. and Thursday, Feb. 3 at 12: noon.

EXPERIENCE THE ORIGINAL!

It’s all about theatrical debuts with the UFV Theatre production of Girl in the Goldfish Bowl, which opens tonight on the Chilliwack campus. The comedy by Canadian playwright Morris Panych will be directed by UFV Theatre faculty member Joanna Redfern. Redfern is in her directorial debut for the department with Girl. As well, three firstyear theatre students will make their acting debuts, including Gabby Bohmer in the role of Iris, a precocious 10-year-old, Rebekah Briscoe is her longsuffering mother Sylvia, and Jalen Saip-Dyck is their colourful lodger, Rose. It’s the second production of the theatre department’s 2010-11 season. As this engaging comedy opens, we hear Iris say: “These are the last few days of my child-

Scene&Heard Detroit to Chilliwack with funky beats The group’s first album Devil’s Night established them as one of the super groups of the new millennium with charttopping singles Purple Pills and Fight Music, with their outlandish antics in studio as well as live. “We were the All-Star Team of battle rappers,” Kuniva writes online. “And when somebody like Bizarre got in front of the mic, we never knew what he might say.”

The Stirs vying for best band title A Chilliwack foursome has made the cut as a finalist in B.C.’s Best Teen Band contest. Local band The Stirs is vying for the title against 10 other up-and-coming bands like The Archers, Ivory Coast, Far From Fiction in the online competition created by Youthink magazine. After an online voting process, they’ll be whittling the number of competing bands down to three, and those names will be announced on Feb. 3. The final three will be performing at the Tom Lee Music Hall on Granville Street at the end of April. Vote daily at bandcontest.youthink.ca until Feb. 7 after creating a profile on the site.

Newhouse, sometimes called a folk artist, says he was a little leery of doing a wildlife book at first. He immersed himself in the works of some of his favourite wildlife artists like Robert Bateman before he even started. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not wildlife artist but I think I did OK.â&#x20AC;?

book review by Quill and Quireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Shannon Ozirny: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Newhouseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sensitive portrayal of the stark Arctic landscape creates an atmospheric chilliness that perfectly captures a winter evening north of the 49th parallel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Original without being gimmicky, Counting on Snow should come with the purchase of every crib in this country, as it has all the makings of a Canadian classic.â&#x20AC;?

Fitness

Those stubborn last pounds If you are struggling to lose the last 10 pounds to reach your weight loss goal, you are not alone. At the start of a diet or major lifestyle change, the weight can seemingly melt away overnight. Invariably, the rate at which pounds and inches lost slows down, and can eventually come to a screeching stop. This frustrating plateau can leave you happy with your success so far, but not exactly where you want to be. Read on to learn why those last 10 pounds are so difficult to shed, and what you can do to conquer your weight loss goal. Reason #1. You have already made major changes to your diet and lifestyle. Many books and magazines show simple changes to make in order to consume fewer calories. For example, you can turn your cheeseburger into a hamburger when you go out, and swap the fries for a side salad, to save 600 calories. Do that once a week, and theoretically you will lose a pound of fat a month. Sounds simple enough but if you are five or ten pounds away from your goal weight, you are probably not eating restaurant hamburgers at all. You have probably also committed to going to the gym on a regular basis- so walking 30 minutes a day won’t do much for your waistline.

What you can do: Be good- really good. If you want to say goodbye to those final few pounds, you must be extra vigilant about your food intake and exercise level. A good way to track your food intake is to keep a food journal. Every time food goes into your mouth (whether it be a meal, a taste while you are cooking, or the cookie crumbs left in the jar), track it on paper, or on the computer or smart phone. Tanja Often, the simple SHAW act of keeping a food journal inspires healthier food choices and results in weight loss. If not, read through your journal and look for ways to improve your diet. Reason #2. Your metabolism has slowed down. Like it or not, your metabolism slows down when you restrict your calories. Back in the day, humans endured times of famine. When food was scarce, the human survived by utilizing fewer calories during the day. While times have changed, our genes have not. We are built to be able to survive on fewer calories- we do it

by slowing our metabolic rate. What you can do: Speed up your metabolic rate! Resistance training, higher intensity exercise, eating regular meals (including breakfast!) and getting a good night’s sleep will transform your body into a calorie burning machine. . Reason #3. You are already at your ideal weight. You may have always dreamed about being a size 6, or fitting into your skinny jeans (the same ones you wore in university), but it may not be realistic. People are meant to be different shapes and sizes, and if you have to severely restrict your calories in order to get to a certain number on the scale or dress size, it is likely that you are not meant to be that size. What you can do: Love your body! Next time you look at your body, focus on the parts that you love. Love your body for the things it lets you do- such as going for a walk or hiking up a mountain. Focus on being healthy, not necessarily thin. Tanja Shaw is a Kinesiologist and personal trainer, specializing in weight loss, pre and postnatal fitness, and health and wellness programs.

Chiefs beat Bruins in forgettable game Eric J. Welsh, The Progress If it were possible to say nothing about Tuesday night’s game and just move on, that would definitely be the way to go. We could all pretend it didn’t happen, because Tuesday night’s game wasn’t one you wanted to remember. It was the type of game you wanted to quickly purge from your memory banks. But this is the newspaper biz, and your friendly neighborhood sports reporter is obligated to bring you the details of a 6-1 Bruins loss to the Spokane Chiefs, no matter how unpleasant they may be. The whole thing must be prefaced with the fact that Spokane came into Prospera Centre sporting a shiny 27-11-3-2 record, one that put them atop the Western conference standings. So, they’re a pretty good team. They were coming off back-to-back thrashings of the Kootenay Ice (11-2) and Everett Silvertips (4-1). So, they were a confident team. To have them come into Prospera Centre and win wouldn’t be unexpected. To have them come in and win in the fashion they did? Unexpected. “We knew what to expect coming in.

They’re a hard-working team and we practiced different systems stuff and ways to beat them,” said Chilliwack’s Dylen McKInlay. “But they just out-worked us. It was a poor effort on our behalf.” The Chiefs led 3-0 through 20 minutes in this one, out-shooting the Bruins 16-4 in the process. Spokane opened the scoring 6:06 in with a power play goal by Edmonton native Levko Koper. They added to the lead at 14:54 on a pretty goal by Mike Aviani, set up by defenceman Brenden Kichton. Kichton saucered a feed through to Aviani as he snuck in behind the Chilliwack defence. The 17-year-old faked forehand and went to the backhand, sliding the puck past Bruins keeper Lucas Gore for his sixth of the year. Brady Brassar t made it 3-0 at 17:28, darting into the slot to finish off a pretty drop pass from Kichton. “They’ve only lost three games since the end of November,” McKinlay said of the slow start that snowballed. “They’re not the most skilled team, but they know how to work. We didn’t match that tonight and that’s what the game came down to.” Spokane continued to pour it on in period two, with Brassart scoring his second of the game and big defenceman Jeff Cowen netting

his 11th of the year. Cowen, a top-10 pick of the National Hockey League’s Ottawa Senators, was his usual dominant self at both ends of the ice. “He’s one of the best in the league,” McKinlay said. “He’s big, tough, has a long reach and he’s tough to get around. But you’ve got to find a way to get the puck away from him, work behind him or work the opposite side.” Chilliwack had some push-back in period two, generating a handful of chances around the Chiefs net,

but James Reid came up with a couple big stops to preserve his shutout bid. Shots on goal through 40 minutes told an accurate story, favouring the Chiefs 25-12. The Bruins managed to slip one past Reid early in the final frame. Ryan Howse hit the 30 goal mark for the third time in his Western Hockey League career, beating Reid 25 seconds into period three. Checking back into the lineup for the first time since injuring his shoulder

Dec. 29, Curt Gogol drew an assist on the Howse tally. Gogol hit the showers soon after, earning four minutes for roughing and a 10 minute misconduct for a brief tustle with Spokane’s Darren Kramer. The Chiefs wrapped up the scoring with 2:07 remaining as Koper out-muscled Kevin Sundher for a puck along the right wing boards, walked in and went top shelf for his 20th of the year. Koper’s goal was a shorthanded effort. Three stars were Brassar t (first),

Kichton (second) and Aviani (third). The Bruins try to rebound this weekend as they face three B.C. division opponents in three nights. A home game with Prince George is sandwiched between road stops in Kamloops (Friday) and Vancouver (Sunday). “We’ve had some success against the Giants, and these are three huge games for us,” McKinlay said. “We need to come out hard, play systematically and hopefully come up with a big six points.”

If familiarity breeds contempt, then Chilliwack and Prince George Cougars should absolutely loathe each other by now. Tomorrow night’s game will be the fourth headto-head meeting in the last 11 days. The teams played three straight against each other last week, with Chilliwack taking two. The Bruins won 3-1 in the last match on Dec. 15, with Chilliwack goaltender Lucas Gore stopping 46 shots.

Seventh better than sixth? It seems strange that a team could go into the final weekend and actually benefit from dropping from fifth or sixth to seventh in the conference, writes Jacob Bestebroer Playoffs are just around the corner and things are heating up in the wild Western conference. In this week’s column, Chilliwack Bruins radio colour man Jacob Bestebroer delves into Bestebroer an unusual playoff possibility. sibility. As we near the final third of the Western Hockey League season it’s looking more and more like finishing seventh in the Western Conference is going to be a much better finish than sixth or even fifth. The top eight teams in the conference will make the playoffs with the top two seeds being the U.S. and B.C. division winners. There are still enough games left in the season for things to change but it’s looking like the top three teams in the west will all be from the U.S. Division. Portland, Tri-City and Spokane have earned themselves some separation from the rest of the conference. If that holds up, one of these three teams will get the number one will seed but the other two teams will be slotted in at numbers three and four because the B.C. Division would get the

number two seed. So that means the eight, six and five seeds would get the true top three teams in the conference as first round playoff opponents. The number seven seed would get the top team in the B.C. division, a team that will likely finish with the fourth best record in the conference. Giving division winners the top seeds in the conference is done in many leagues at different levels in different sports and it makes sense, but it seems strange to me that a team could go into the final weekend of action and actually benefit from dropping from fifth or sixth to seventh in the conference. The only way to avoid this would be to go to a more balanced schedule and eliminate the divisions. There’s no real chance that would ever happen though, as teams have built up their biggest rivalries with teams in their current division and taking away some of those head to head games and replacing them with games against teams from the other division could have a negative effect on attendance. It would also mean

additional travel costs for some of the teams. Congratulations to Ryan Howse for scoring his 30th goal off the season Tuesdayy against Spokane. Ryan and Oscar Moller are the only Bruins to have reached the 30 goal mark. Howse has now w done it three years in a row. This weekend is an important one for the Bruins. They’ve played fewer games than the other four teams in the division and they startt to make those up with three games in three days beginning Fridayy in Kamloops. All three games are against B.C. division teams. Prince George is here Saturday before the Bruins visitt Vancouver Sunday. The Bruins and Cougars have splitt the first six head to head match ups this season and have builtt up a healthy dislike forr each other. I expect Saturday’s game to be a spirited affair, and if you are thinking about going to the game, visitt the Bruins official Facebook page for a coupon that will save you over four dollars on an adult ticket. jb@chilliwackbruins.com

WHL has big-league impact As the National Hockey League passes the mid-point of the 2010-11 campaign, Western Hockey League graduates find themselves in the middle of the action. Of the 868 players who had played at least one game in the NHL as of January, 186 are graduates of the WHL. That figure represents over 21 per cent of the NHL’s playing population. In addition, there are 36 WHL grads on NHL coaching staffs, and and another 29 in key management positions around the league. The Minnesota Wild lead

A couple of ex-Bruins continue to toil in the minors. 2007-08 WHL scoring champ Mark Santorelli has seven goals and 13 points in 37 games for the Milwaukee Admirals, the AHL affiliate of the Nashville Predators. Former Chilliwack captain Josh Aspenlind has split this season

between the AHL’s Manitoba Moose and ECHL’s Victoria Salmon Kings, posting zero goals and 10 points in 37 games. Original Br uin Myles Stoesz has only appeared in 11 games this season, playing seven for the AHL Albany Devils and four for the ECHL Trenton Devils. Forty-three WHLers were selected in the most recent NHL entry draft, with seven going in the first round, marking the WHL’s best showing since 2005.

Dan Kinvig, Black Press After enduring two building seasons, University of the Fraser Valley women’s basketball coach Al

Tuchscherer is finally beginning to enjoy the fruits of his labour. Tuchscherer’s Cascades engineered an impressive upset victory on Friday, knocking off the Alberta Pandas 69-63 at the Envision Athletic Centre. The Pandas boasted a Canada West-leading 12-2 record coming in, and were No. 7 in the national rankings. The Pandas bounced back to split the twogame set, winning 70-52 on Saturday, but it’s clear that the best is yet

to come for the youthful Cascades. With the exception of veterans Alyssa Gaukel and Tessa Klassen, every player on the roster is in their first or second year of eligibility. The roster includes five Chilliwack natives; Gaukel, Alexa McCar thy, Sarah Wierks, Nicole Wierks and Courtney Bartel. At 8-8 on the season, UFV is currently seventh in Canada West, but at the rate they’re improving on a game-togame basis, the upper

echelon doesn’t seem so far away. “The mindset is different than it was last year,” Tuchscherer said, reflecting on his team’s performance this season after going a combined 6-35 over the previous two Canada West campaigns. “There’s higher expectations (internally). We know we can play with these teams. “Every game is a learning process for us. It’s exciting, and the players are hungry for that.”

Wedding edding Announce Your

Duke - Ronald Humphrey, B.Sc., Prof.Eng., CD

March 9, 1925 to January 9, 2011 Ron passed away peacefully surrounded by his family. He is survived by his loving wife of 62 years Patricia, his daughters Laurel (David) and Robyn (Michael),his son David (Vicki), his grandchildren who adored him, Jordan, Nicole, Haley and Emma; brothers Vernon (Audrey) and Peter (Barbara), sister Barbara (Jim), sister-in-law Frances (Paul) and many nieces and nephews. Ron was born in Edson, Alberta to Charles and Laurel Duke. The family moved to Edmonton and then to Winnipeg. In 1943 Ron enlisted in the Armed Forces. Shortly thereafter, he met and married the love of his life, Pattie. Ron attended the University of Manitoba where he graduated with a B.Sc. in Chemistry, Honours and re-enlisted in the Canadian Armed Forces. During the next 33 years Ron and his family lived in the U.S.A., Europe and Canada before he retired to Ottawa after attaining the rank of Colonel. One highlight of his military career was serving as the Canadian Military Attache to Yugoslavia and Greece. Ron was never one to sit still and spent many hours as a Boy Scout leader, minor hockey coach and non-stop volunteer serving on many boards and committees. When he retired from the Forces he returned to school where he graduated with a Diploma in Recreation Management from Algonquin College in Ottawa. In 1980 his diploma led he and Pattie across the country to Chilliwack, B.C. where he worked as Director of the Y.M.C.A. for eight years. Ron loved to golf and he spent many hours on the golf course with his friends and family. He also loved to garden both at home and at the Gwynne Vaughan Gardens where he tended to his veggies. A staunch supporter of the Chilliwack Bruins/Chiefs, you could always find him cheering in his reserved seat at the arena. He was a faithful member of the Chilliwack Rotary Club where he was awarded the Paul Harris Fellow. His dedication to Rotary was exemplified by his 32 years of perfect attendance. In 1996 Ron was also recognized by the “Independent Senior” newspaper as the “B.C. Senior of the Year”. Whether it was building an ice rink in the backyard for his kid, starting the St. Thomas Carpet Bowling league, serving as President on the Board of the Senior Resource Centre for 9 years, playing Candyland with his grandkids, reading with Kindergarten students, volunteering at Elder College or helping Pattie design a quilt pattern, he brought to everything he did passion, commitment and loyalty. Never a quiet man, he loved a good joke and laughed loudly and often. He was intensely proud of his wife, children and grandchildren. He also showed a great affection for his children’s pets. He was a man that was never afraid to show his love for his family and he was a man who was admired by all and a mentor to many. He will be missed. The family would like to thank Dr. Scott Markey, Dr. S. Mawani and the wonderful staff at the Maple Ridge Seniors Village for all the love and care they gave to this wonderful husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. Messages and remembrances can be sent to www.gardenhill.ca. A memorial service will be held at St. Thomas Anglican Church, 46048 Gore Avenue, Chilliwack, B.C. on Monday, January 24th, 2011 at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations in Ronald’s memory may be made to The Rotary International Foundation c/o the Rotary Club of Chilliwack or a charity of your choice.
