Janzen steps away from BC Liberal nomination

■ P ARADE L IGHTS U P D OWNTOWN

Robert Freeman The Progress Diane Janzen is “stepping down” from her bid for the BC Liberal nomination in Chilliwack-Hope. In a statement issued Saturday, Janzen said “in the last few weeks there had been a growing concern over her run in the last federal election” as a candidate for the federal Liberal Party. She said that the Liberal label could be used against her as a candidate in the strongly conservative riding of Chilliwack-Hope. “It wasn’t my concern,” said Janzen, known for her conservative fiscal values as a Chilliwack city councillor, “but when it comes to party politics, you have to suspend your own wants for the greater good.” Janzen said she holds no bitterness toward the BC Liberal party. “Bitterness is a wasted emotion,” she said. “I have a very meaningful job and a wonderful family to turn to.” BC Conservative Party leader John Cummins characterized Janzen’s decision, and the decision of a “preferred” BC Liberal candidate in the Port Moody-Coquitlam riding not to run, as “abandoning” the party “Candidates are abandoning Christy Clark’s Liberal party in key ridings,” Cummins said in a news release. “Why is the governing party having such a hard time finding qualified people willing to run in seats they won easily in the last election?” he asked. But Dale Wheeldon, head of the Chilliwack-Hope BC Liberal constituency association, said there are other candidates in the wings, and he has no doubt the party will find a “fantastic” nomination candidate to replace Janzen. “I’m not the least bit concerned about it,” he said. rfreeman@theprogress.com

Methane capture planned for landfill Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Better air quality is coming down the pipe for Chilliwack with a $3.5 million boost from the federal gas tax fund to build a methane extraction system at the Bailey landfill. The new system will help create jobs and foster growth, said Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl, and he offered his “sincere congratulations” to Chilliwack on the project at the announcement Saturday in the

Chilliwack Cultural Centre. “Our government is proud to invest in Chilliwack’s next-generation gas extraction system, a project that will contribute to the economy and improve the environment through innovative technologies,” he said. A trench network will go in at the site between now and 2014 that will see methane gas drawn into a pipe and then burned off in a process called “flaring” to substantially cut greenhouse gas emissions. Chilliwack will become one

of only eight communities in B.C. with this type of technology, with a series of pipes and wells installed in stages to collect leaching methane gas. Chilliwack-Hope MLA Barry Penner remembered discussions years ago when he was environment minister, talking with Chilliwack council about what it was going to do about offsetting the negative impacts of the landfill with infrastructure. “It is hoped in the not-toodistant future that we’ll actually be able to capture, either in a

bottle or in a tank, the methane for other uses,” said Penner. At this point equipment and installation costs don’t make it financially viable, but Penner noted it’s a “big step” for Chilliwack nonetheless to get the technology. “But maybe in the future it will become more economical to use the methane gas that gets extracted,” he said, noting it’s been studied to power vehicles and heating systems.

Family looks for answers in prison cell murder Robert Freeman The Progress Canada Corrections officials aren’t saying why a serial killer held in maximum security was transferred last year to a mediumsecurity facility where he murdered the inmate he was double-bunked with. However, the BC coroner has called for an inquest into the Nov. 22, 2010 death of Jeremy Phillips, and his family has launched a legal action against Corrections Canada. Phillips’ uncle Wayne Fraser told The Progress he hopes the inquest sheds some light on his nephew’s death, and the decision by Canada Corrections to place him in a cell with a serial killer.

“This is what we want answered,” he said. “How did a six-time serial killer end up in the same cell as my nephew?” Michael Wayne McGray, who pleaded guilty last week to the first-degree murder of Phillips, told police that his cellmate wanted to stage a hostage-taking to force prison officials to send Phillips to the prison infirmary and to send McGray back to Kent prison. But McGray said Phillips had angered him, so instead of the hostage-taking he tied up his cellmate and strangled him to death with bedsheets. But Fraser said that story makes no sense because his nephew was nearing his release date, and he wanted to get out of prison to help

his recently-widowed mother. “He wanted to turn his life around and be a street counsellor.” Fraser said. Family lawyer Myer Rabin said a lawsuit alleging the government had failed in its obligation to provide a safe environment for prisoners was launched in March. He said the family questions both the transfer of McGray from Kent prison to Mountain Institution, and the decision to double-bunk him with Phillips, since the mediumsecurity facility was reportedly not overcrowded at the time. McGray had also told officials another story — that he was paid $20,000 to kill Phillips — and Rabin said there is a “rumour but no proof” that someone back east that

Phillips had “ratted on” had found out he was at Mountain Institution in British Columbia. The family has not yet decided whether they will accept an out of court settlement, and no decision is expected until sometime next year, Rabin said. No date or location has been set for the B.C. inquest. Although inquests into prison deaths are no longer mandatory in B.C., Chief Coroner Barbara McLintock said in a news release that the Phillips case raises questions about the safety of prison inmates that can “best be explored through the inquest process.” An inquest jury cannot make findings of legal responsibility, but may make recommendations aimed

at preventing deaths under similar circumstances. The Union of Canadian Correctional Officers is also concerned about the safety of its members when maximum-security inmates are transferred to mediumsecurity facilities. “We find it troubling this guy was sent to Mountain,” Gord Robertson, UCCO Pacific Region president said, but he could not get into details at this time. A Canada Corrections spokesman said questions about McGray’s transfer should go to the freedom of information officer. However, an FOI request by The Progress in March asking for any documents related to the transfer of McGray was denied in its entirety.

RCMP identify crime hotspots

Youtube fundraiser for toddler Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Computer model tracks crimes Robert Freeman The Progress Crime hotspots in Chilliwack are going to be publicly identified in monthly reports by the Chilliwack RCMP. Police resources will be deployed to the “hot-spots” in an effort to reduce crime there. The most recent crime hotspots are: ■ Exhibition Park area where there has been a concentration of property crime, including vehicle theft and four thefts from vehicles. ■ Yale Road/Williams Road where there has been a concentration of property crime off Gore Avenue up to Bole Avenue between Nowell Street and Charles Street. In a 14-day period there were 10 property crimes reported in the area. ■ Wells Road area where there has been a concentration of property crimes off Vedder Road from Briton Avenue up to Knight Road. One business break-in, one residential break-in and two thefts from vehicle have been reported in the area. Continued: CRIME/ p10

Barry Penner said it’s a “big step” for Chilliwack to build a methane extraction system at the Bailey Landfill during the announcement on Saturday, and hopes the captured methane can one day be used. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

$3.5 million for landfill upgrade LANDFILL from Front The project cost was covered entirely by gas tax funds, and the province provided technical reviews which helped expedite it. The UBCM administers the tax fund in B.C., which the federal government funds nationally with $2 billion each year. Mayor Sharon Gaetz thanked her federal and provincial counterparts for helping to make this “worthy” project a reality. “We think $3.5 million is a huge whack of cash,” she said, explaining

that the project otherwise would have cost taxpayers the equivalent of a six per cent tax increase, or more. “This new system will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help improve air quality across the region, both of which are priorities for Chilliwack residents,” said the mayor. With a national infrastructure deficit crisis afoot, cities have been “scrambling” to find ways to increase infrastructure without incurring debt, she said. “We’re very encouraged when we see these things are possible,” said

Gaetz. Methane gases are created by microbes in the landfill acting on the organic matter to break it down. A tonne of methane gas produces more than 20 times the pollutants compared to a tonne of CO2. A request for expressions of interest will go out in January 2012 for the design-build methane gas extraction project, with construction expected to start by mid-summer at the landfill on Bailey Road. jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/CHWKjourno

A special song by local band Pardon My Striptease was released on iTunes yesterday to support a Chilliwack family and BC Children’s. Proceeds from the song, Pray (for LJ), are going to the Love for Lilee fund and BC Children’s. PMS members rallied around one of their own when singer Andrew Putt and Chelsey Whittle’s toddler, Lilee-Jean WhittlePutt, was stricken with a rare tumour. She underwent surgery and is receiving treatment at the Children’s for an aggressive form of cancer. Lilee celebrated her first birthday on Monday, Dec. 5, the same day the single, Pray, was released on iTunes, and it’s one of many fundraisers going on simultaneously in the Fraser Valley to support Love for Lilee. A seasonal light display is also ongoing at 10115 Hymar Drive in Chilliwack, and they are accepting donations for Love for Lilee. To purchase the 99 cent song, find this breaking story at www. theprogress.com and follow the link.

Silence becomes golden for local students The Progress Telling children they can’t speak for a whole day, is like telling them no more candy for the rest of their lives. And yet, several students in Chilliwack took it upon themselves last week not to speak. All for child rights awareness. Ten schools in Chilliwack, at var ying levels, participated in this year’s Vow of Silence campaign on Nov. 30. Vow of Silence is an annual one-day campaign, organized by

Free the Children, to raise awareness for children who are silenced by poverty, disease and exploitation. For teacher John Davy, it was the most powerful day of his teaching career. “It wasn’t that they weren’t allowed to speak, they chose not to speak,” said Davy, who teaches a Grade 5-6 class at Greendale elementary. In Davy’s class, students used white boards, sticky notes, and basic sign language to communicate – but no spoken word. They wore lanyards telling

people around them that they were choosing not to speak, that they were choosing to be silent for those who are forced to be silent. Some stuck tape on their lips with messages of a vow of silence, while others walked around the school with signs stating that they were silent for a reason. Throughout the day, the young students live blogged their thoughts and feelings, and watched videos on child rights issues. “And you could almost see the awareness in their eyes,” said

Davy. “They were making the connection.” Davy believes his students are at the “sweet spot” for learning about such global issues. “For these kids, their world is their home,” he said. “They have so little personal experience beyond their family, their church, their school. But as they enter early adolescence, they begin to wonder about the world around them ... this is the sweet spot, the right age for them to be learning about this.” Other schools that took part in the Vow

of Silence included Central elementar y, Promontor y elementary, A.D. Rundle middle, Vedder middle, Chilliwack middle, Mt. Slesse middle, G.W. Graham middle secondar y, Chilliwack secondary and Sardis secondary. kbartel@theprogress.com twitter.com/schoolscribe33

Investment Success Requires Discipline

The lack of early French immersion in Chilliwack is tantamount to a “missing link,” said parent Ron Plowright. He’s one of several Chilliwack parents trying to raise awareness about the benefits of starting French immersion early at the kindergarten level. “Trustees have said if the numbers are there, they’ll support it,” said parent Travis Forstbauer. “We want to work with the Chilliwack school district to find out if the numbers are there.” Both Forstbauer and Plowright have children aged three and younger, and believe strongly in the benefits of acquiring a second language at a young age. They’re so serious about lobbying for it at the local level, that some of the parents have set up a Parents for Early Immersion in Chilliwack Facebook page, which so far has 35 members. “To learn a second language, especially like French, is invaluable for children,” said Forstbauer. “Having the opportunity to start French immersion when they’re first going to school is less time consuming for them.” For him, starting in Grade 6, was “too late.” Plowright said EFI holds “huge benefits” for the community and society as a whole.

Political high stakes

The Chilliwack

Progress

R AESIDE

A week ago in this space, it was mentioned how the run up to a by-election can shift a riding’s political topography. Saturday, we discovered just how much. Diane Janzen, the only declared candidate seeking the Liberal nomination in the Chilliwack-Hope riding, walked away on the weekend, saying her earlier effort to run as a federal Liberal had become “a distraction.” (See story, front page.) Clearly the stakes are high in the coming by-election, and the BC Liberals are not about to risk seeing any conservative support bleed away to the BC Conservatives. The two parties have been goading each other for days, with Liberals questioning party leader John Cummins’ decision not to run in the riding, and Cummins saying Janzen’s decision to step aside is evidence candidates were “abandoning” the BC Liberals. The NDP must be smiling. New Democrats have the most to gain from a hotly contested battle between the Liberals and Conservatives. A split vote on the right opens an avenue to Victoria that they might not otherwise enjoy. The BC Liberals know this. They neither want a divisive nomination process that further fractures their support base, nor a candidate that may lack the proper small “c” conservative credentials. Whether Janzen’s conservative pedigree was insufficient to fend off an even more conservative attack, we’ll never know. But certainly her association with the federal Liberal Party and her challenge of Mark Strahl in the last federal election made her vulnerable. By-elections are curious animals in the world of politics. Rather than a contest fought in the shadows of a larger campaign, they sit in the full glare of public – and political – attention. Rather than one race among many, they are the race. With stakes that high, it’s not surprising party officials are less willing to take chances. ~ Greg Knill, Chilliwack Progress

What can we learn from Attawapiskat? Last week, the appalling housing crisis on the Attawapiskat reserve shocked the nation and forced the federal government to implement third-party management of the band. That step infuriated Chief Theresa Spence but it’s a step in the right direction to helping the community get a handle on its financial affairs. Ultimately, though, this crisis is a community problem that should to be dealt with by the community and fixed for the long term. Some 1,800 people live in the remote region where traditionally they have survived on trapping and hunting. Some of them have found work with DeBeers at their Victory diamond mine located 90 kilometres west of Attawapiskat. The housing crisis in this northern Ontario Cree community at the mouth of the Attawapiskat River on James Bay has been festering for years. In July 2008 a mas-

sive sewage flood dumped waste into eight buildings housing 90 people. (Then) Chief Theresa Hall approached the federal government about their lack of response to the problem but the feds said they had provided $700,000 to fix the problem. Yet these families lack the basics of life in the north: running water, plumbing, insulation and Margaret proper heating. EVANS Prime Minister Harper said last week that the conservative government has targeted $90 million to Attawapiskat since 2006 and federal officials want to know where that money has gone. Just as the Red Cross made front page news delivering emergency supplies to the commun-

ity, taxpayers across the country asked the same thing. And it wasn’t lost on many that there’s a stinging sense of embarrassment to see First Nations people living in Canada existing in third world conditions. Why? Decades of neglect, indifference, and a profound lack of understanding of their culture and language have clouded our judgment and focus. Northern natives live in a world few Canadians have any concept of. Attawapiskat mirrors many Attawapiskats across the country where native people live in squalid conditions. The Assembly of First Nations counts 630 native communities in Canada and the Department of Aboriginal Affairs and Northern Development (DAAND) has 67 co-managed reserves and 11 third-party managed reserves.

DAAND identifies three levels of intervention policy. The first involves the reserve members putting together a plan to get its financials back on track. The second involves co-management in which the band council and DAAND agree on a co-manager who has signing authority on all accounts containing federal funding. Attawapiskat has been at this level for almost ten years. Under third-party management, all funding goes through a manager appointed by DAAND to administer it. But it must be a temporary arrangement with the end result seeing the band self-reliant. Getting to the root cause and fixing the problem isn’t just about throwing more money at the problem but understanding the unique needs of northern people and responding appropriately. They need buildings designed and constructed so that they can cope not

just with harsh winters but withstand the coming rigors of climate change. Their youth need access to education at the practical and locally driven level so that they can learn vital trade skills such as construction, plumbing, electrical, and welding; business skills that include accounting, money management, planning, and marketing, and health care, child care, and nursing skills. And there have to be jobs at the end of it. It’ll be a tough call; 90 per cent of Attawapiskat residents are unemployed. Maybe this crisis is a national wake-up call for change. Over $9 billion of taxpayer money finances aboriginal programs and services annually. Education and investment in the appropriate infrastructure must yield the end results in which native people have the skill sets to run their own affairs and make their own decisions.

Walter Used To Eat Frozen Dinners Alone

A little hope can go a long way Why should there only be one week devoted to bullying? As a high school student, the everyday pressures are hard enough to handle. There seems to always be a test to study for, a project due, or even some stressful personal stuff going on. So, think about this: what happens when you are constantly being put down or being forced to feel like you have no one to support you? How do you cope? Who do you turn to? For some teens, they have the option of talking to parents, teachers, or friends. What happens when everyone – even the ones you trust most – turn their backs on you and your problems. For other teens, this is the horror

they are facing. Time after time they cry out for help only to be shut down and neglected. And at some point, they crack, turning either to suicide or self medication. As tragic as that seems, they believe this is however, the only way out. This goes on everyday. Personal experiences taught me that something needs to change. First, I got mad, now, the only way to prevent this from happening to someone else is to get the word out. Well, how do I plan to do this? People need to realize that small gestures like smiling at a stranger or saying “hi” or “have a nice day” are simple tasks that can make others in this situation believe that someone out there

cares. A little hope can go a long way. It can even save someone’s life. So, why should people have to feel alone in a country that claims diversity and the acceptance of everybody? Everyone has a breaking point, there is only so much a person can handle before they shatter into a million pieces. Let’s work together to provide resources for people in this situation and stop bigotry altogether. If you or somebody you know needs help or just someone to talk to call 1-800-668-6868.

Watch your speed in school zones This is a letter to all those who speed through the school zone on First Ave near FG Leary: As I was driving home from school this morning, a small boy darted onto the road because he was fooling around with a friend on the sidewalk. He covered the distance from the sidewalk, through the bike lane, onto the road in a second. It’s a good thing I was doing 30km and the person behind me was as well. It meant I could hit my brakes firmly and stop in time. It meant I wasn’t rear-ended. It also avoided a chain reaction that may have caused me to strike the child if my vehicle had been hit with enough force from behind. What if you had been coming instead of me this morning?

Join our family for winter and leave the shoveling, shopping and winter worries to us.

Support your local merchant With the Christmas season quickly approaching I’d like to suggest people shop locally in their choices. Shopping locally builds a stronger community infrastructure. Having lived in places that thrived, I noted that “buy locally” was strongly emphasized – from a restaurant my husband worked to a healthcare facility I worked – it was policy to buy locally. Support local merchants and you may spend a few extra cents or dollars, but you are keeping the community strong, which would benefit the community and province and country in the long run.

Beyond the call of duty for man’s best friend On Saturday, Nov. 19 I took my four-legged best friend to Menzies Pet Hospital for a “second” opinion. I had never been there before. When I arrived, Dr. Mann walked in and I asked him if he would please look at my dog as she was very sick. He replied, “Yes of course.” He took the time to look at Sadie, said he would put her on an IV and take x-rays and would call later that evening. (Nothing showed on the x-rays). Sunday I called to see how

she was doing and asked if I could come and spend time with my friend. Dr. Mann said, “not a problem”. Monday morning I called, no change in Sadie, I asked if I could come to visit her but this time may I bring a TV and her favorite movie. “Absolutely,” he said. We decided with Dr. Mann’s advice to have an ultrasound as that would show more than the x-ray. Dr. Mann would have to go back after his regular hours to do the ultrasound and would call with the results.

At 10:15 p.m. Dr. Mann called. He too was surprised with the results. Sadie had a tumour in her heart and pancreas. I would have to make the hardest decision of my life. My heart is heavy but I also have peace knowing Dr. Mann and his staff gave Sadie the utmost attention and made the last three days of her life comfortable. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, Dr. Mann. The compassion you have for animals is unbelievable.

Certain to bring tidings of great joy! Wrapped in beautiful paper and laying under the tree!

Early French immersion From what they can tell, Chilliwack is one of the largest communities which does not offer EFI. The nearest school district that does offer EFI is Abbotsford. The group of parents interested in EFI have started networking with the national organization, Canadian Parents For French. “They’ve been a big help already,” said Plowright. “Ultimately I think it will take Chilliwack parents standing up to say they want this to make it happen.” The parents want to partner with the school district to “survey” parents to quantify support for the idea, and end the speculation about it.

“The school district has the clout and the tools, so we believe between them and us we can get this figured out,” Plowright said. In September, the school district did survey prospective French immersion parents at a public consultation meeting and online to see how many would be interested in EFI. Superintendent Michael Audet did not respond to a call made by The Progress prior to press deadline to clarify where the district is at with EFI. The ad hoc group of parents hopes to gather a delegation of parents to attend a future school district meeting to make a presentation on the topic. To find out more contact the group at earlyimmersion@gmail.com.

Church fundraises for water drilling rigs Katie Bartel The Progress

The Book Man is selling 12-month calendars and four sets of bookmarks featuring store cat, Nietzsche. All funds raised go to support Chilliwack Animal Safe Haven. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Nietzsche, the pin-up cat The Book Man raises funds for Chilliwack Animal Safe Haven through calendar sales Katie Bartel The Progress Nietzsche and fame, it was only a matter of time. The bookstore cat has a flare for dramatics just as a celebrity should. For years, he’s been haughtily sauntering around The Book Man’s stacks; getting regular massages, up to 20 a day; and expects daily rides on book carts – the faster the better. He poses for photos, demands loving attention, and puts smiles on the faces of everyone around him. He doesn’t demand a high pay cheque, but does demand his chair, and if someone’s sitting there, he’ll just squeeze in and stretch out behind them, or sometimes plop down right on top of them. Seriously, if Nietzsche isn’t already catting about in circles that include the high profiles of Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling, he soon will be. This month, Nietzsche has taken his fame to a whole new level – as pin-up cat. Twelve months, January to December, all Nietzsche, all the time. According to Amber Short, manager of The Book Man, a calendar in Nietzsche’s honour was the least they could do. “It is such a special role being in the public eye all the time,” said Short, while sitting in Nietzsche’s fur-covered chair. “When he’s sleeping here, in just one

hour, he’ll have at least 15 to 20 people interrupting his sleep. He has people petting him, massaging him, worshipping him, loving him all day.” The life of a bookstore cat. After three years at The Book Man, Nietzsche’s talents were discovered last year by AbeBooks.com, one of the largest, independent online marketplaces for new, used, rare and out-of-print books. His handsome peaches and cream, long, fluffy locks, and demure stare landed him a spot as featured feline in the online bookstore’s cat catalogue. From there, his celebrity status – and Facebook status – skyrocketed. The Book Man printed 50 limited-edition Nietzsche bookmarks to mark his newfound fame. In just three days, they were sold out. “People are still asking about them,” said Short. And being the savvy minded cat he is, Nietzsche took the bookmarks as opportunity to give back to his roots. Nietzsche comes from humble beginnings. After working his way through two different homes, two different families, he found himself an orphan at the Chilliwack Animal Safe Haven. He knows first hand the tireless work and endless love put in by Safe Haven founder Ena Vermerris and her volunteers. He knows the struggles of running an organization, of

taking in abandoned cats, and of maintaining an adequate budget to feed, house and care for those cats. He wanted to give back. After last year’s bookmarks raised $250 for Chilliwack Animal Safe Haven, The Book Man commissioned artwork from the community with Nietzsche as the theme. Nietzsche was the subject of multiple photo shoots, struck poses for water colour paintings, was in vogue for pastel portraits, and became a cat superhero in a comic book sketch – the products of which created the 12-month calendar. All for Chilliwack Animal Safe Haven. “Without the Animal Safe Haven, Nietzsche wouldn’t have come here,” said Short. “The bookmarks gave us an opportunity to raise money for Safe Haven, and after the crazy response we got, we had to keep it going.” The Nietzsche calendars are $16.99, available at The Book Man. All proceeds go to Chilliwack Animal Safe Haven. The Book Man has also printed up four new bookmarks, 50 of each print, which will be sold for $5 each. Nietzsche hopes to raise at least $2,700.

In Chilliwack, clean water is a given, but in Nigeria, it’s a luxury. Most villages don’t have clean water. Women and children have to walk for hours every day to obtain water from rivers that people also bathe in, wash their clothes and motorcycles, even defecate in. “It’s really bad, infants are dying, hundreds and hundreds of villages are without water,” said Steve Anderson of The Wanted Children Foundation. And the water they do have, “it’s green, milky, slow-moving water. It’s full of microbes, guinea worm, hookworm. “Eighty per cent of the sickness that hits children out there would be gone if they could just get clean water,” said Anderson. A local church fundraiser is striving to make that happen. Broadway Church has partnered with The Wanted Children Foundation to raise enough funds to purchase a water rig for the foundation to start drilling wells in Nigeria. Every year Broadway Church selects a global cause to raise funds for over the holiday season. They’ve sent a teenager in a third-world village to university, have built schools and homes, and have rebuilt churches in disaster regions. This year, it’s water well drilling. “We want to drill wells in villages that have no water,” said Anderson. The organization is close to achieving that goal. This summer Anderson and his daughter Courtney, founder of The Wanted Children Foundation, went to Nigeria where they reorganized and consolidated the non-profit’s focus. Top of the list is providing villages with clean water. They met with high-ranking officials, grand chiefs, dignitaries, royalty, secret service, and the minister of water resources. “We’re moving into a new chapter, a new era,” said Anderson. “within two years, we hope to have the ability to drill wells as a team.” But first they need to purchase a water rig. Because Nigeria has no surface water that can be purified, clean water can only be found “by going into the ground,” said Anderson. The foundation expects the water rig to cost $70,000, which includes retrofitting and shipping to Nigeria. The Broadway Church fundraiser, which runs through the month of December, is getting the organization closer to achieving that goal.

The YMCA of Chilliwack has teamed up with Sage Intellectual to offer a unique brain exercise program to Chilliwack seniors. It has been known for a long time that keeping physically fit is essential for health, which has resulted in the development of several fitness programs directed at seniors so that they

maintain as healthy as possible as they age. Less, however, has been developed about brain flexibility and health. Research into brain plasticity has clearly shown that the brain is continually able to develop new neural pathways throughout life. Not only is this novel to what we had previously thought, but

also demonstrates that brains need stimulation to mature and maintain flexibility. Yet, very few programs have been created that address this need. Those that have often stress practice of routine activities, such as knitting and Sudoku, or the use of â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;traditionalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; school learning models towards knowledge competency, such as a university or college course for seniors to learn about great painters or quantum mechanics. Sage Intellectual, however, has crafted a unique learning program for seniors to keep healthy, exercise their brains, be social and have a lot of fun. The Sage Intellectual program does not focus on refining particular skills or learning any set content, but rather it is philosophically inspired to get groups to challenge themselves to explore and experience novel learning that is relevant to them.

projects in a philosophical contemplation as means of keeping brains healthy and flexible. Dr. Hart Banack, an expert in education who established the program, will facilitate the classes. Banack was spurned by the lack of high quality learning opportunities for seniors. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are many learning and education programs for youth and adults, but not much that exists specifically for senior learners,â&#x20AC;? says Banack. He goes on to highlight how learning needs for seniors are quite distinct from those of other generations. With health, social community engagement and fun as the aims of the program, this new approach offers seniors a chance to explore learning particular to their needs and wants for the unique stage of life that seniors experience.

Winter is now upon us, as is the great Canadian past time: snow-shovelling season! Though rarely thought of as exercise, it can be just as exhausting--a shovel full of wet snow can weigh up to 25 pounds, or about the same as a concrete block! Snow shovelling can place excessive stress on spinal muscles and structures causing low back strains and vertebral disc damage. Remember to stretch beforehand, stay warm to prevent spasms, pace yourself and take rests, use proper lifting mechanics, hydrate yourself afterwards…and maybe consider asking Santa for a snow blower in your stocking!

The Mission... The Vision... An Enduring Purpose... A Future Focus... Who Am I... My Promise... These words begin to describe how I differ for the norm. I have spent the past 16 years in the Sales, Marketing, and Advertising field. It is this background that gives me a unique perspective of how a home should be marketed. Are you tired of leaving messages that aren’t being returned? Do you find it annoying when the homes advertised in the newspapers are not as they seem? Wouldn’t it be nice to work with someone who understands your point of view? Nothing puts a bigger smile on my face than having satisfied clients whom I have helped to reach their real estate goals. I provide you with the highest degree of professional service excellence and customer satisfaction that is “TOUGH to BEAT.” I am Mike DellaFortuna, and it would be my pleasure to help you.

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.

the second place Merritt Centennials. The Cents are coming off a win and a tie in a weekend back-to-back against the Vernon Vipers. Merritt’s 36 points has them five ahead of Chilliwack, and the Centennials have won both of the head-to-head meetings this season. Silvan Harper had the winner Oct. 16 as Merritt squeaked out a 4-3 overtime win over the Chiefs in Merritt. The Cents dumped Chilliwack 4-1 in mid November, but Wednesday night marks the Centennials first visit to Prospera Centre.

“Teams tend to work harder at home and there’s definitely something to home ice advantage,” Smyl said. “We’re looking forward to seeing them in our rink and I hope we’ll be prepared for them.” Chilliwack is 9-3-0-0 at home. The Centennials don’t excel in any one area, but they are a solid all-round team. Offensively, they average 3.14 goals per game, led by leading scorer Regan Soquila. The Maple Ridge native has nine goals and 33 points in 28 games. The next highest scor-

ing Merritt forward is Evan Stack, with 10 goals and 22 points. A veteran blueline corps led by Brandon Pfeil (West Vancouver) and Billy Marshall (Smithers) keeps things tidy around the Merritt net. The Centennials have rotated goalies this season, with Tyler Steel (Vernon) and Lino Chimienti (Laval, Quebec) splitting 30 appearances right down the middle. ● With three weekend goals, Derek Huisman has quietly moved into the top 20 in BCHL goal scoring. His 14 goals lead the

Chiefs, but the Smithers native is still 11 back of the league leader. Penticton’s Bryce Gervais has 25. ● Two BCHL teams are ranked among the top 20 in the latest Canadian Junior Hockey League poll. The Penticton Vees are rated third in the country behind the Manitoba Hockey league’s Woodstock Slammers and Alberta Junior Hockey League’s Spruce Grove Saints. The Cowichan Valley Capitals check in at No. 18, with the Merritt Centennials getting an honourable mention.

Ruth’s Appointment Calendar Used To Be The TV Guide

Thunder thumped

Chilliwack’s U-11 United girls soccer squad played against Langley this past weekend, blanking the Thunder 2-0. In an evenly played game, Chilliwack got its first goal midway through the first half. Grace Vandenbrink made a perfect pass to winger Carmen Bonnar, who booted it into the Langley net.

United for wards Grace Bisson, Katie Lampen, Danielle Klassen and Amber Feaver worked well together with quick passes and good communication, and Lampen scored the second Chilliwack goal. Defender Miranda Coombes earned the assist on Lampen’s strike. Chilliwack goaltender Katrina Brown was busy in the final minutes as Langley tried to get on the score board. With help from defenders Paige Owens, Kalista Kirkness, Madison Steele and Deanna Turchscherer, Brown was able to preserve the shutout.

Humbled by Heat The Chilliwack Lunachicks traveled to Pitt Meadows on the weekend to face the defending champion Haney Heat, falling by a 2-0 score. The Heat got their first goal at the 12 minute mark. Chilliwack’s best chance came in the second half when Andrea Feaver took a throughball from Janelle Cavanaugh. Feaver deked the Haney keeper, who’d come well out of her net to challenge. The goaltender recovered just enough to get a hand on Feaver’s shot, keeping it out of the otherwise unguarded net. Haney got the insurance marker at the 30 minute mark of the second half. Coach Joe Hall was

✞ Obituaries BAUER Ernst

March 9, 1942-Nov. 28, 2011 It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Ernst (Ernie) at his home BAUER in Agassiz on November 28th. Ernie will be remembered by his loving wife, Taffy, his children- Sabina (Graeme), Julia (Dustin), & Alex (Hayley), grandchildren (Roche, Tenaya, Ethan & Linden), sister Liz (Paul), father, Ernst Sr., nieces, and treasured community of friends. He is predeceased by his mother, Hilda and daughter, Nicole. Ernie, an analyzer of life, was dedicated to his family, and the betterment of his community and the world. His determined Bavarian spirit, quirky humour, and strength of character touched so many, and will remain an inspiration in our hearts and thoughts for always. Special thanks to Dr. Robert Fox and to the many friends who reached out to help. A Celebration of Ernie’s Life will be held on Saturday, December 10th at 1:30pm at the Harrison Hot Springs Resort Hotel. In lieu of flowers, enjoy an ice cream.
