Call for full-time firefighters after Promontory fire Robert Freeman The Progress The blaze that destroyed a house on Daniel Drive Tuesday has area residents asking whether full-time firefighters are needed to fight fires in Promontory Heights. “We pay a lot of taxes in Chilliwack, and we seem to have more houses burning,” said Daniel Drive resident Ian Moskaluk. “We’re very fortunate we have a guy who lives around the corner who is a paid fireman in Abbotsford who had a hose and a wrench in his truck,” Moskaluk said. He said the neighbour had water on the fire 20 minutes before firefighters from the fire hall in Sardis arrived. “They do a great job and everything,” Moskaluk said about the Chilliwack firefighters, “but if it wasn’t for that guy with a hose and wrench ... it could have been a lot worse.” Fire Chief Rick Ryall said Chilliwack does have full-time firefighters, 24 of them, along with paid-oncall volunteers. And it was the full-time firefighters who arrived first at the Daniel Drive fire – 10 minutes after the call. Continued: FIRE/ p8

Air ambulance saving lives in the Fraser Valley Robert Freeman The Progress

Simkus, head of the cardiology team at RCH, told The Progress Wednesday. With additional improvements in telecommunications - allowing electrocardiograms to be done en route to the hospital, he said, “we’re hoping to shave off somewhere between half an hour to an hour.” “And that makes a difference.” For years, the BC Ambulance Service has been airlifting trauma patients, but only recently have all the pieces for treating a severe heart attack come together for an air ambulance in the Fraser Valley. It’s not as simple as it sounds. “Basically, it’s the right timing of three different processes that have

DLN 8692

Minutes count when you’re having a heart attack. So the Fraser Health Authority has joined forces with the B.C. Ambulance Service to airlift critical cardiac patients from Chilliwack and Fraser Canyon hospitals to the Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, the region’s top cardiac centre. Driving a patient there by ambulance could take up to two hours or more, if traffic is heavy. A helicopter can get a patient there in under 30 minutes. And during the flight, speciallytrained critical care paramedics

can start treatment while a cardiac team at RCH gets ready to receive the patient. Six patients from the Chilliwack area may already owe their lives to the program, called the STEMI Launch protocol, which started just over a month ago on May 25. STEMI - doctor-speak for a very bad heart attack - stands for ST Elevated Myocardial Infarction. During a STEMI event, blood flow to the heart is blocked, causing serious damage to the heart muscle or even death. The faster the artery is unblocked, the better chance the patient has to recover and spend less time in hospital. “Time is muscle when you’re talking heart attack,” Dr. Gerald

been developing that’s created this opportunity,” Dr. Steve Wheeler, medical director of the program, said. “This is not something you can just do,” he said. “For it to work, all the pieces have to run smoothly.” Air ambulance dispatchers and paramedics developed “skill sets” over the years to treat and identify severe heart attack patients, and technology advanced so ECG “heart tracings” could be transmitted by cellphone. At the hospital end, the cardiac team can now prepare a “cath-lab” where a balloon is used to unblock an artery “remarkably quickly,” Wheeler said. “What these three processes

have been able to do, instead of things happening in linear time, the processes start happening in parallel,” he said. The timed saved means better outcomes for the patient. It also means ground ambulances are still in Chilliwack ready for emergencies here, and there’s a full complement of nurses at the hospital instead of one traveling to RCH with a patient. The protocol is a “natural extension” of the air ambulance service already in place for trauma victims, Dr. Simkus said. “A heart attack is as time critical as a trauma victim,” he said.

FVRD skeeter squad $100,000 over budget Robert Freeman The Progress You’re not imagining things, the mosquitoes are bad this year. But not the worst they’ve ever been, says Dirk Lewis, the mosquito man at the Fraser Valley Regional District and biologist at Morrow BioScience. Morrow’s been chasing skeeters in the Fraser Valley since 1989. “This has been an extraordinary year,” he says, sounding a little worn-out during an interview Tuesday at the regional district.

“We’ve been going non-stop since late May.” “The mass of the mosquitoes is coming from the islands,” he says. But there is also more standing water in farmers’ fields this year, the result of “seepage,” he says, as ground water is pushed up and out by the high river level and with additional bouts of heavy rain. Perfect breeding conditions for mosquitoes. Morrow and a team of four assistants have been wading and paddling into these swampy areas using a bacterial product that kills

mosquitoes in the larval stage but is otherwise harmless. A helicopter is used to treat larger areas, but aerial “fogging” is no longer done. Also, the pesticide being used is “not residual” so it must be re-applied if there is a surge in the water level and breeding areas re-created. There are residual pesticides on the market, but none registered for safe use in Canada. All of which means valley residents have been inundated by hungry mosquitoes and the regional district “bombarded” with their

complaints. “How can you plan for a river that has been high for the past six weeks,” said George Murray, the FVRD’s exasperated finance director. “We’re already spending

$100,000 more than budgeted,” he said, and estimated the total will hit $260,000 this year. That’s not chicken feed. Lewis said there are various antimosquito products on the market, but the best defense is a physical barrier - long sleeves, light-colored clothing. He said the worst year for mosquitoes in his experience was 1999, but their numbers must have been unimaginable before the shallow Sumas Lake was drained and no longer a huge breeding ground. rfreeman@theprogress.com

Going green for Party in the Park Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Party in the Park is becoming a testing ground for a new kind of waste collection in Chilliwack. All food scraps will be separated from the waste stream at the event every Friday night, which dovetails with the long-term strategy of city officials to reduce garbage volumes going into the landfill. City and BIA officials joined forces to launch the food-scrap diversion proWe thi W thinkk gram, and it that big kicks off at the first Party in community the Park event, events are on Friday, July 8, with the help the perfect of volunteers time to directing visitors to specially demonstrate marked bins good around Central C o m m u n i t y stewardship Park. “We think ~ Mayor that big commuSharon nity events are Gaetz the perfect time to demonstrate good stewardship,” said Mayor Sharon Gaetz. “It’s also a good way to see if we can handle the volumes of food scrap waste, and educate the public at the same time.” A waste audit conducted recently by a city contractor determined that 30 per cent of the waste stream created by Chilliwack is made up of food scraps and organic material. That constitutes significant potential for waste diversion down the road, say city officials.

Stanley Cup riot victim Crystal Ratvay now has some new wheels, thanks to the generosity of friends and strangers. Ratvay, a student at University of the Fraser Valley, was presented with a red 2003 Chevy Cavalier on Saturday through an arrangement that had been organized by Mark Woodall of Surrey. Woodall has a friend who owns South Surrey Repo, and he called him after reading in the media about how Ratvay’s 1990 Cavalier had been flipped and smashed in the riot on June 15. Ratvay, 30, had been given the car by her aunt earlier that day to help her travel from Chilliwack to attend school and other appointments. Her first trip was to visit her friend Michael Didyk in Vancouver to watch Game 7 in the Stanley Cup final between the Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins . Following the riot, Didyk organized a Facebook campaign to raise funds towards the purchase of a replacement vehicle for Ratvay. Friends and strangers came forward, donating more than $1,000.

Another $450 was raised by two DJs – Will Ramadan and Bruce Shearer – from a Vancouver show on June 27. Woodall contacted Didyk to say that South Surrey Repo had a 2003 Chevy Cavalier for purchase. Woodall agreed to make up the difference between the $5,500 asking price – which the dealership discounted – and the fundraised amount. Two other people also offered vehicles. An Abbotsford woman was willing to donate her 2001 Cavalier at no cost, and another dealership – Burrard Acura – said they would donate a vehicle, depending on what came in on the lot. Woodall’s offer was accepted because it was the newest vehicle with the fewest kilometres,

Didyk said. He said he was touched to experience the kindness of so many strangers. “I think it’s a testament to the true spirit of the people of Vancouver.” Ratvay said she is “blessed and thankful” for the support. She said she can now focus on her business studies without the added burden of transportation problems, and can more easily attend medical appointments for issues related to a serious car accident six years ago. “Words can only say so much, but my heart is filled with so much love and appreciation to all those who have supported me and helped me during this tough time,” Ratvay said.

They brought Chilliwack a new dining experience to broaden our horizons, and that is exactly what they did. The Firestone Grill is the first restaurant of its kind in Chilliwack and it offers something totally new: traditional Korean barbecue. On each table is a description of the cooking style and its rich history. The first thing a diner will notice is that at the centre of each table is a large stone grill. Meats are cooked on the super hot grill, locking in flavour and freshness. They are served with a variety of side dishes and assorted vegetables. The dishes are shared (except the rice) in a fun and communal way. “This custom represents the true character of Koreans as being social people who prefer to do everything together.” Not only do you experience sizzling masterpieces at your table, with creative cookery, but the quick lunch they serve is a piece of art in itself, perfect for the executive on the run. But the food is more than just delicious. The health benefits of Korean food are drawing increasing attention, both here and around the world. Kimchi is the most common Korean side dish. There are hundreds of varieties – however, they share a reputation for wholesomeness that is drawing strong endorsement. Indeed, Health Magazine has declared Kimchi one of the five best health foods in the world. “Korean cuisine is a culmination of wisdom passed down from enlightened beings of the past.” The Firestone Grill will be tantalizing your taste buds with an all you can eat 2 for 1 extreme deal, every Sunday for the month of July. The Firestone Grill is located at 45833 Yale Road, Next to Tim Hortons and Big O Tire. There’s plenty of parking around back. For more information, call 604-792-5091.

Prolific offender pinched by police for car theft in Chilliwack Chilliwack RCMP say they have arrested a prolific offender wanted on four outstanding warrants as a result of an investigation into a stolen vehicle report. RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said prolific offenders “occupy a significant number of police resources” in Chilliwack “and we always consider it a success when they are apprehended. Police were responding to a report of a stolen vehicle that had crashed into the overpass pillar at Young Road and Highway 1 on Canada Day. When police arrived, they located a female suspect, and a police dog

team was called in to locate a second suspect. “Not long after police arrived, the male suspect emerged from the nearby bushes and turned himself in to police,” Wolbeck said. Jesse Kurt Wright, 20, of Chilliwack, is facing charges of possession of stolen property and failure to remain at the scene of an accident. Wolbeck said a prolific offender is defined by the number of “negative contacts” with the police, and Wright had four outstanding warrants when he was arrested. He returns to court on July 11.

Library well placed Chilliwack had its first look at plans for a new south side library Wednesday evening. And while the open house occurred after The Progress had gone to press, it seems likely that the building will stir some debate. Inevitably, these kinds of projects do. People grumble about their taxes, complain about a pothole, then ask why the city is spending money on something like this. What a shame. A library in the south end of town is an addition to the infrastructure landscape that should be welcomed. It will be a community resource that will complement existing services and fill a gap that has long needed filling. The location, near the corner of Tyson and Cumberland, seems a perfect spot. Its proximity to Twin Rinks and Watson Glen Park will make it a destination for families. While the kids are at hockey practice, or at their figure skating lessons, parents can be at the library with the younger siblings checking out the children’s section. And that’s important. Reading, from an early age, promotes literacy skills that are so necessary to success in life. It encourages a fondness for books that helps foster creativity and curiosity. But access is key. Libraries offer a collection far more vast than anything we can accumulate on our own. And while the downtown branch is an excellent facility, its not practical to expect it to continue accommodating Chilliwack’s growing population. Yes, there are other needs in this city. But a library is not just an institution for the here and now. It is something for the generations to come. As the late Carl Sagan said, “I think the health of our civilization, the depth of our awareness about the underpinnings of our culture and our concern for the future can all be tested by how well we support our libraries.” ~ Greg Knill, Chilliwack Progress

A decade later, Nisga’a treaty still no panacea VICTORIA – There were high hopes and harsh words in 2000 when the provincial and federal governments signed Canada’s first modern-day treaty with the Nisga’a people of northwestern B.C. The four villages are now governed by the Nisga’a Lisims government, which holds broad authority transferred from the federal and provincial governments. While Canada’s financial support continues to flow, the Nisga’a Nation is nearing the stage where it must begin to collect taxes and become self-sustaining. A new study by the Winnipegbased Frontier Centre for Public Policy offers a unique look behind the scenes of this remote experiment. And judging by the hostile response of the Nisga’a government to the findings, it may be the last one for some time. Is the Nisga’a Nation ready to support itself? The short answer is no, according to polling data

and extensive interviews with “key informants” who are not identified. Co-author Joseph Quesnel told me he interviewed 15 influential people, both supporters and critics of the treaty, since he first visited the region last fall. A larger phone survey by COMPAS Research found Tom that more people FLETCHER trust the Nisga’a government compared to the old Indian Act regime. But divisions remain, particularly over giving up aboriginal tax exemptions. Quesnel said he met people who have left the Nisga’a villages for nearby Tsimshian communities, before sales and income taxes take effect in 2013. According to the study, a culture

of dependency that grew up during a century of colonial-style rule remains pervasive. The authors report many of the same problems that plague Indian Act reserves, such as willful damage to housing, accusations of nepotism and failed business investment. “More than one key informant observed that old attitudes and mentalities persist regarding public services,” the report states. “Expectations at the local level that the village government will provide everything are still rampant.” Quesnel said the Nisga’a Nation’s recent move to allow fee-simple ownership of municipal-style lots is a key step towards self-sufficiency. But the land title system is still in development and it’s too soon to see results. The study notes that economic conditions in Nisga’a territory have become worse since the treaty. Quesnel agreed with my suggestion that this has more to do with

the decline of forestry and fishing than any failure of governance. Nisga’a Lisims President Mitchell Stevens issued a statement rejecting the report’s findings, citing two factual errors and denying that he had participated. Quesnel, a Quebec Metis with a background in journalism, said he was welcomed on his initial visit and was even invited to attend a Nisga’a Lisims executive meeting. But he said Stevens and other officials “stopped responding” as the project progressed. In his statement, Stevens described the code of conduct for Nisga’a officials and the complaint process people can use to hold them accountable for decisions. The president dismissed the “colourful commentary” of a few “key informants” who didn’t expect to be quoted. Quesnel says that despite the slow progress, he remains convinced the Nisga’a treaty is a posi-

tive step. Now investors have only one government to deal with, and the region has electricity, mining and gas development on the drawing board. And there are lessons to be learned by other aboriginal communities, such as tackling dependency and addiction problems before a treaty is signed, and bringing in outside experts to set up businesses. “Mitchell Stevens, when I spoke to him, was optimistic about the ability to reduce transfers, even eliminate them,” Quesnel said. “Without financial independence, I think political self-government is really an illusion. Ultimately, you’re still dependent.” Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca twitter. com/tomfletcherbc

Licence rules unfair Although it is illegal to use age discrimination, it appears that 80-yearolds are being targeted to be taken off the road. Since they cannot do it because of age, they have come up with some cute word games that can cause you to lose your licence. This was started in January of this year. You must repeat 10 words, and tell in one minute how many items can be found in the supermarket. I have since been told that this is an Alzheimer’s test. My husband’s memory is very sharp. The fact that all the physical numbers are okay doesn’t seem to matter. My husband has never had an

accident, or a ticket. He has had some health issues over the years, but they are all behind him now. However, as is the case with many people, he gets anxious about testing, and can freeze up. As a result, the necessary ‘pass’ fell short and he lost his licence. This seems to be a very unfair criteria, and also that there is no second chance, as people going for their first licence are allowed. I have been told by many people that there are a lot of complaints being heard, as even our MLA’s office admitted to me. It is ruining our last years, and makes a man feel totally finished. It’s awful. Patricia Swen

Research before you buy a puppy Humans have decency right? They wouldn’t lock up innocent animals in a cage, force them to have babies and then shoot them when they’re too old to be any use right? Wrong. Dog breeders around the world run animal farms called puppy mills. Puppy mills are animal-breeding farms where dogs and sometimes other animals like cats and bunnies are locked up in horrible living conditions. They are kept in cages all their lives, in some they are kept in huge barns reeking of excrement. If you want to stop this cruelty then buy your puppy from a breeder that you know treat their dogs well. Before you get a dog ask around! Look in the classifieds. Visiting the SPCA is a great place to start. And if you want to get a dog in a pet store make sure you know where it came from and how it got there. Inform yourself before buying. It’s better for everyone. Michelle Murray-Schlitt

Canada Day needs a new name With yet another flagwaving Canada Day behind us, replete with a veritable love-in of self-congratulatory fervour, one cannot escape the uncomfortable notion that it’s a slippery slope from patriotism to jingoism. National days celebrate historical achievement. The French people gave birth to their nation on July 14, 1789, and celebrate it as Bastille Day. Americans gave birth to their nation on July 4, 1776, and celebrate it as Independence Day. Canada began its journey to self-government on July 1, 1867, as the federal Dominion of Canada with the confederation of the new Canadian provinces. So let’s celebrate Canada’s birth as Confederation Day or, better even, return to our historical beginning and re-name it back to Dominion Day. E.W. Bopp

News Two men die in Harrison plane crash Jessica Peters Black Press A flight instructor and student are dead, after the Cessna they were flying crashed into a mountain near Harrison Lake Tuesday afternoon. RCMP say the two men had left Boundary Bay airport in Delta, as part of the Pacific Flying Club. They were “undertaking the mountainous terrain portion of the student’s flying lessons,” Constable Tracy Wolbeck said Wednesday, but there is no indication yet how the crash happened. RCMP are still assessing how to bring the bodies out of the remote location, using the assistance of local Search and Rescue volunteers.

On Wednesday morning, one Chilliwack SAR member was heading to the crash site with the RCMP and their helicopter. Neil Brewer with Kent-Harrison SAR said they would be coordinating how to recover the bodies later Wednesday. RCMP got the call about 4:40 p.m. Tuesday, and the 442 Squadron from Comox CFB was the first crew to visit the wreckage, at about 7 p.m. Plain wrecks are the responsibility of the Department of National Defense, Brewer said. The Air Force then contacted the RCMP, who began their investigation and contacted local SAR groups, around 10 p.m. on Wednesday. The site is extremely remote, he added.

“It’s about 12 km southwest of the old Tipella airstrip, nine or 10 km from the Spring Creek logging camp and at the south fork of Tipella Creek, at about 4,000 feet (elevation),” Brewer said. “There is nothing up there.” While a decision hadn’t yet been made, he speculated they would use long-line extraction. SAR won’t bring out the plane, though, as that falls under the National Transportation Safety Board. “This is really a sad accident and our thoughts are with the family of the victims and the Pacific Flying Club,” said Cst. Wolbeck. “The Search and Rescue teams have a very difficult task ahead of them today and our thoughts are also with them as they undertake this daunting mission.”

Promontory looks at community response FIRE from Front “I can’t dispute that if the full-time guys were twiddling their thumbs at Fire Hall 4 the response time would have been faster,” Ryall said. But one fire truck was at the Cottonwood Mall doing an inspection, and the second was in downtown Chilliwack. It was rush-hour traf-

fic that slowed down the response time, Ryall said. “If the fire had happened at 2 a.m. on a weekday, I can guarantee the response time would have been four minutes,” he said. Neither full-time firefighters nor a firehall in Promontory is being talked about at the Promontory Residents

Association, said chairperson Ken Newton. “We’re moving toward a community response team,” he said, and working with Chilliwack fire officials to develop who and what should make up the team. “We’ll be having a meeting with them in the early fall,” he said. The cause of the Tuesday fire appears to

be accidental, but some Daniel Drive residents contacted by The Progress suspect the two-storey house was being used for illegal drug trafficking. Two men who reportedly fled from the house when the fire erupted at about 5 p.m. were arrested by police but later released without any charges. rfreeman@theprogress.com

“So we’ll be asking everyone to recycle their waste carefully, so we don’t generate a lot of garbage at one of downtown’s biggest events of the year,” said Gaetz. Bins will be clearly marked with one for food scraps, one for recycling, one for drink containers, and one for garbage. Everything from apple cores and orange peels to hot dogs, buns and corn cobs can go into the food scrap bin. BIA officials are also working closely with PIP vendors to make their packaging and utensils more environmentally friendly. Bulk water will be available on-site for refilling to reduce water bottle garbage. Food scrap collection is not just restricted to organic material like plants, fruits and vegetables. Meat and other proteins can be included in the food scrap collection in this case because the process used by the commercial compost processor easily breaks down the proteins and fat by applying optimum heat levels. It’s different for backyard composting, when attracting rodents is a concern and must be avoided.

The food scrap waste will be taken to a compost processing facility owned by Fraser Richmond Soil and Fibre, which runs the Parr Road composting facility. Several volunteers are still needed to fill the vital role of green waste diversion guides over the eight nights of PIP this summer. Individuals, groups and business reps are welcome to volunteer for three-hour shifts at a time. To volunteer, call 604.793.2907 or get a volunteer application from www. downtownchilliwack.com. jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/CHWKjourno

News

Downtown tries out Sunday shopping Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Calls for Sunday shopping in Chilliwack have been growing louder, say some downtown merchants. Several stores have thrown open their doors for business on Sundays in recent weeks, specifically to determine if there is enough demand to warrant the service on a more regular basis. “The reason why we decided to try it out this summer was because we constantly were getting customers asking us to open on Sundays,” says Ron Romeyn of Objekts on Wellington Avenue. Members of the Downtown Chilliwack BIA have been kicking

around the idea a lot lately as a group. “It started with the Classic Car Show,” says Romeyn. “If the support is there, we’ll stay open, so we encourage everyone to come down and show support for the idea if it appeals to them.” Weekends are the only time some residents have for leisurely browsing the shops. “It we do it together, and open on Sundays as a group of businesses, there’s even more reason for people to come downtown and check us out,” he adds. Wellington businesses like the Book Man are already open on Sundays. This summer they have been joined by Objekts, Bella Rosa Florist, Creekside Country

Home Decor, Teddy Bear Dreams, Mary’s Uniforms, Diva Boutique and the Town Butcher. With the good weather on the way, and likely some tourists, it made sense to try the Sunday shopping experiment as a group, says Lois Chadburn, owner of Lolly’s Fashion Lounge. “We thought we’d give it a whirl and see if it catches on.” They opened last Sunday and noticed an increase in the traffic. “We’re relying on word-of-mouth for the news to get around that we’re opening Sundays,” she says. “We hope people will make downtown a destination on Sundays once they find out we’re here.”

Neighbours

Erik Stephany: Sleight of hand As I entered the Stephany home, I was greeted by a loveable and excitable Jack Russel terrier named Fudge. After sniffing me and licking my hand in approval, I had the opportunity of sitting Ana down with MACEDO 16-yearold Erik Stephany to talk about his passion – magic! While Erik was born in Ottawa, the family moved to Hamilton, Ontario shortly thereafter, where they lived until six years ago. “Hamilton is a rather large city and it has issues with smog. Dad said that the mountains were calling us and we moved here. It really was a good decision,” he said in a rather sophisticated manner. He was your typical youngster, with rather normal interests. By the time that he was seven, he became enthusiastic about performing magic and while other interests went as quickly as they came, this one stuck. He is now a Grade 10 student at Chilliwack Senior Secondary but his interest in magic has turned into something that he has determined will be his lifelong career. He is an academic student and admits that he loves drama. “It’s probably the thrill of being creative; of being able to put feeling into what you’re doing. My dad was involved in drama productions when he was younger and my mom is a writer. She’s written children’s books and is currently working on novels,” he explained. From his enthusiasm, there is little doubt that creativity is something that thrills him. “Erik has also been a part of Destination Imagination, an organization that provides educational programs for students to learn and experience creativity, teamwork and problem solving,” said his obviously proud and encouraging mother. To add to his keen

interest in magic, three years ago Erik was watching a television program on the Much Music channel where celebrities were competing for a $100,000 prize to determine the top celebrity magician. “They were doing things like grand illusions, escapes and things like that. It just blew me away and I started going to the Book Man and the library to pick up books on magic,” he enthused. He also found out that there was a professional magician living in Chilliwack. Damien Carriere is an accomplished, international awardwinning magician who has performed around the world, from North America to the Great Wall of China and he just happened to offer private magic lessons. Erik was delighted and used his paper route money to pay for this personal training. “Now I’m his apprentice,” he beamed. Once he graduates from high school, Erik plans to take drama courses and then he’s looking to head south. “My plan is to attend the Chavez Institute of Magic. After that, I want to have my own tour show or a stable stage show, as in Vegas,” he said assuredly. Erik is a caring and giving young man and this past March, Erik resolved to raise funds for B.C. Children’s Hospital by presenting a show at the Chilliwack Mall. He dazzled aspiring youngsters with his magic and was able to present the hospital with a donation. As Erik works hard to perfect his magic, he continues to take lessons and has joined the International Brotherhood of Magicians and belongs to the Vancouver Magic Circle. “I have come a long way since I started. When I went to a recent meeting, we all had to perform an illusion and I decided to produce eggs out of mid air. It went well,” he explained methodically. This young man is mature beyond his years and is totally committed to his craft. When he’s not doing

school work, he reads or works on his magic. “That’s basically what I do. Magic in and of itself is fun. I love seeing the reactions on people when I perform for them. It gives me a natural high,” he admitted with a

smile. Erik has taught himself to make balloon animals and is available to perform at all kinds of events, including children’s birthday parties. If you’d like him to perform, call him at 604703-0301.

Approximately 150 individuals attended the 18th annual Consultation on Chilliwack’s Children, held recently at Sardis Secondary School, sponsored by the Chilliwack Child and Youth Committee (CYC). The event is aptly named and themed Action Builds Community, and every year it’s an opportunity for those from the community and child and youth serving agencies to come together to communicate, collaborate, and connect. Attendees came from a variety of organizations and disciplines. Essentially, anyone interested in the health, safety, welfare and wellbeing of the children and youth who call Chilliwack home. One of the things I really admire about this event is the level of youth engagement and involvement. Adolescents from the various high schools were present all day attending the workshops, facilitating small groups during the consultation portion, and providing their unique perspective.

The day began with a meet and munch which was a great opportunity to reconnect, peruse the information and community booths, create awareness of local programs and services, answer Eryn quesWICKER tions, and network. Participants then attended one of four workshops, with topics ranging from mental health literacy to deep democracy, building an inclusive community to working collaboratively with families. I was fortunate to attend Dan Reist’s presentation on Mental Health Literacy in the classroom. He is the assistant director at UVIC’s Centre for Addictions Research of BC. I left his workshop with the following thoughts: It’s not about repairing the weaknesses, it’s about focusing on and enhancing the positive and strengths in a person; it’s about changing the environment, not blaming the child when it comes to social concerns like drugs, mental health, etc; it’s about building competencies, building connections, applying a health lens to everything in a school or community including structures, policies, and programs, and then becoming interested and truly considering the impact any action could have on the health of the child or adolescent. After the a break we met as a larger group for the consultation portion from the Child and Youth Committee. Dan Bibby, manager of operations for MCFD Chilliwack/Fraser Cascade introduced this portion of the event and spoke of how the CYC is unique to Chilliwack, and spends time trying to identify and rectify gaps in services for children, youth, and their families. A few years ago a gap was identified in the early years (0-5 years old), and subsequently it became a huge focus, so much so that every Child and Youth Mental Health Continued: ACTION/ p15

Perspectives Conference: ‘Action builds community’ team for MCFD has a designated early childhood clinician. Now, the middle years (6-12 years old) has shifted into focus. Rob Skinner from Youth Services and Ron Plowright from the Fraser Health Authority were instrumental in leading the youth event that was a precursor to this event, and they asked the attending youth the following question: “What do you wish adults had known about you during your middle years?” They then led us in a similar exercise, after which we met in small groups (facilitated by youth) to discuss the youth’s responses. Two themes that continued to arise out of the various discussions were: doing everything earlier (have those tough conversations, whether they are about sex, drugs, or mental health, earlier than you think you need to); and understand the role and implications of social media. The hope is that awareness was created that will inform our programs and services as well as positively impact our relationships with this age group moving forward. After lunch Dr. Rob Lees introduced Dr. Kimberly SchonertReichl, a developmental psychologist from HELP (Human Early Learning Partnership), an interdisciplinary research institute housed at UBC, who spoke about Middle Childhood Inside and Out (the psychological and social world of children, ages 9-12). The following points stood out to me from her presentation: • This age range is pivotal in terms of preventing problems and influencing future direction • Don’t just tell kids about the birds and bees, they want to know about the consequences too • Help children cultivate an attitude of gratitude

(volunteer, random acts of kindness, helping out at home), as research shows it can actually improve happiness • Foster Resiliency in our children by means of building self-efficacy, optimism, and courage, and by having supportive adults at home and school and a positive peer group • Children want two

main things: to feel competent and to feel cared for And we were left with the following questions: • What are the differences that make a difference? • How can we help children feel more supported and experience success? • What can we do to lead children on a posi-

tive path towards becoming contributing citizens of tomorrow? As Dr. SchonertReichl quoted, remember that “Every child needs someone in their life who is absolutely crazy about them.”

cash!

Special to The Progress It’s been a long cool spring. Coupled with some recent economic slumps, travel has been hit by some turbulence as of late. But as the sun starts showing itself, things are warming up for 2011 travel. Indicators for 2011 suggest people want to travel more than in 2010, and travel and tourism providers couldn’t be more ready for it. Up, Up And Away

Enjoy our

Twilight Rate Monday to Friday $15 from 4 pm

According to Trip Advisor’s 2011 travel trends survey, 90 per cent of respondents plan to take two or more leisure trips this year. A full 25 per cent will fly more than they did in 2010. Thirty-six per cent plan to spend more on travel, and 94 per cent will travel more if they can find a good deal. No matter which way you look at it, travel is looking more favourable. Silver Anniversaries Abound

Reserve your tee time: Call 604-796-9009

Baby boomers are making headlines in travel for 2011. As baby boomers approach their milestone 25th and 30th wedding anniversaries this year, vow renewals are on the upswing, and lovers are flocking back to the places where they first fell in love or got married. In the USA alone, almost 30 million Americans took their vows between 1980 and 1990,

marking an all-time matrimonial high. Whether young, old, dating, engaged, married or starcrossed, the lovey-dovey have their sights set on intimate places like Parksville and Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island, a destination seemingly made-toorder for romance. With more than 13 km of sandy beaches to walk hand in hand on, postcardperfect sunsets, and a range of romantic hideaways to nestle into, it fits the bill for the celebratory set. A Family by Any Definition

No longer 2.5 kids, a dog and a white picket fence, families are evolving and with them, family travel trends. FTFc Consulting has indicated that more family travel in 2011 will include the grandparents, and that half of families will travel with adult children. Areas like Parksville-Qualicum Beach have been appealing to families for decades and have defined development over the years. Families have their pick of accommodations - including oceanfront cabins, quaint B&Bs, rustic beach cottages, luxury resorts, spacious condos, budget friendly motels, and deluxe vacation rentals. This world renowned area was recently named the No. 3 beach in Canada by TripAdvisor, and Better

Homes and Gardens Magazine readers voted Parksville’s beach “the favourite family-friendly beach in Canada.” Just this June the area’s Cathedral Grove was named the No. 3 Canadian Natural Wonder by MSN Travel for its magnificent old growth trees. There’s An App For That!

One 2011 travel trend that’s sure to make everyone smile is hotel and resort flash sales, typically available through social media channels like Facebook. com. Not just for the bargain hunter, Facebook, mobile and other geek chic websites and devices are playing an everincreasing role in 2011 tourism, helpful for travel planning, recommendations, collective buying, and yes, the all important deal. Not one to be left behind in this digital era, the Oceanside Tourism Association has rolled out several initiatives to stay in touch and keep people connected. For example, they have updated their mobile site (http://m. myPQB.ca) for access to all things Parksville and Qualicum Beach on-the-go, including specials. After seeing a 410 per cent increase in mobile users to their website in one year, they’ve developed a free mobile travel App for iPhone allowing virtual access to time-sensitive specials.

Before you vote, understand the referendum question: Are you in favour of extinguishing the HST and reinstating the PST in conjunction with the GST?

NO. To bring back the GST & PST at 12%, vote YES. To lower the HST from 12% to 10%, vote

SUMMER CLASSES & CAMPS

Community Services aim to improve efficiency The Progress The focus is on providing services efficiently to the community. C h i l l i w a c k Community Services board of directors just approved a $4.9 million budget for 2011-12. A key priority is the purchase and implementation of a Performance Measurement and Client Tracking system, says board president Alex McAulay. “Procuring this will enable CCS to easily and accurately report measurable outcomes to all stakeholders and donors, and improve overall efficiency, so

more staff time can be spent delivering services,” he said. Donations account for 40 per cent of what CCS needs to provide key programs such as Family Literacy, Downtown Family Place and Central Gateway for Families. “We continue to be heavily reliant on community donations and support to maintain key programming in our community,” says McAulay. Other programs dependent on fundraising are Volunteer Chilliwack, Meals on Wheels, Youth Services, and Community Drivers.

TEAM McCORD WOULD LIKE TO SEND A HEART-FELT THANKYOU OUT TO ALL OUR FAMILIES, FRIENDS AND SPONSORS. Without your invaluable support we wouldn’t have raised close to $65,000.00 this year and close to $72,000.00 last year. We also set a record in B.C. for the most money raised by one group ever, all teams together raising $11,200,000.00. We feel privileged to participate in an event such as the “RIDE TO CONQUER CANCER” and very grateful for every donation that came in during the last 2 years. The support that you have given us has motivated us to enter our team again for a 3rd year. The B.C. Cancer Foundation has taken leaps and bounds over time, just knowing that all funds raised are contributing to breakthrough research, innovative treatments and compassionate care is an inspiration to train hard for the “RIDE” in 2012.

Unity Christian school charts path for the future Katie Bartel The Progress Guiding principles at Unity Christian school have finally been inked. After 40 years without, the school recently launched its first fiveyear strategic plan.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The time for a strategic plan is ripe, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably overdue actually,â&#x20AC;? said school principal Ed Noot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the early years, they probably didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think in core values, but in the current educational marketplace where thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a lot of

choice, we have to.â&#x20AC;? Which is why the principal reworked his project for the Van Lunen fellowship. Last year Noot was one of 24 Christian school principals selected to participate in a one-year fellowship program with the

Van Lunen Center for Executive Management in Christian Schools. As part of the program, he was required to complete a schoolbased project. Initially Noot went into the fellowship with plans on examining and possibly revamping the admin-



istrative and school board leadership structure at Unity Christian. Not long into the fellowship, however, he realized developing a strategic plan was much more pertinent. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a lot of strategic initiatives over the years, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve lacked an overall plan that held everything together,â&#x20AC;? said Noot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A strategic plan will help focus our leadership and define who we

are.â&#x20AC;? In developing the plan, Noot surveyed the school community and worked with a Van Lunen advisor every week on the phone. In the plan, there are six core values listed that include a dedication to God, community involvement, inclusivity, student engagement, and discernment. There are also strategic goals surrounding educational excellence,

fiscal responsibility, and community marketing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This really sets the agenda for our leadership team over the next number of years,â&#x20AC;? said Noot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will keep our focus on the big picture, on whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important for our school.â&#x20AC;? The strategic plan can be viewed on the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at www.unitychristian.ca kbartel@theprogress.com twitter.com/schoolscribe33

Emily Hamel is the director of the Chilliwack Players’ Guild's production of Sabrina Fair. Behind her are two of the main character's love interests, 'David' played by Ross Biondolillo, and 'Linus' played by Larry Hamm. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Sabrina Fair offered with a touch of flair Jennifer Feinberg The Progress It’s the theatrical equivalent of a chick flick. Chilliwack Players’ Guild presents the ever-charming and clever Sabrina Fair this weekend as its final production of the season in the Rotary Hall of the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. “Sabrina Fair can be seen as light and fluffy and entertaining,” says director Emily Hamel. “But if you take the time to really listen to what the characters are saying, it also has layers. There’s so much underneath and that’s

part of why I chose it.” It’s the perfect way to impress a date, she says. The play was written by Samuel A. Taylor and runs July 7-10. The founder of Bootstrap Theatre, Hamel submitted the idea and was delighted when it was approved. She’s enjoying her first chance to direct a main-stage production for the Guild. Hamel stumbled across the idea to direct Sabrina Fair with the Guild while working on another production. “The script was being used as a prop. I was reading it to stay awake and I thought, this sounds familiar. The 1954

movie version was one of my favourites.” The lead role of Sabrina Fairchild, played by Geneva Perkins of Langley, is bursting with wit and heart. “Geneva also has an easy, charming way about her,” says Hamel. “It was a no-brainer casting her. I couldn’t think of anyone else who would do as well in the part of Sabrina. “She also has real chemistry with the cast.” The story of Sabrina has her growing up on the Larrabees’ grand estate on the north shore of Long Island in the 1950s, as the daughter

of the family chauffeur. She goes off to college and then lives in Paris for five years. Upon her triumphant return stateside, her beauty, vivacity and sophistication dazzle the two handsome brothers, jovial David and brooding businessman Linus. Questions of class and status arise, and then the story gets good, with Sabrina positioned as the bewitching heroine, with her suitors in tow, and soon-to-be uncovered family secrets. The Guild production is being presented in the 160seat Rotary Hall. “There is real intimacy created with the audience in this

space. If you’re in the front row, you’re sitting two feet away from the actors. There’s just not a bad seat in the house.” The set of the Long Island mansion is recreated beautifully. “There was a lot of detail work done, from faux rock to wall paper to recreate the setting.” Sabrina Fair at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre in the Rotary Hall July 7, 8 and 9 at 7:30 p.m. Matinees performances are on July 9 and 10 at 2 p.m. Tickets $20/$15 by phone at 604-391-SHOW or www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca.

As the temperatures rise to the high twenties and beyond, you may find yourself swapping your evening jog for a cold drink in an air conditioned basement. Outdoor exercise may be a challenge when the summer heat, but that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean you have to forgo your plans to keep in shape. Here are a few tips to stay active and safe this summer. 1. Drink plenty of fluid. When you exercise in the heat, more water is lost through

sweating, causing a decrease in blood volume. If the fluid is not replaced, the heart must work harder to pump blood to the working muscles. This can result in increased heart rate, excessive fatigue and dizziness. To stay hydrated, start replenishing your fluids before you exercise. During exercise, drink 6-8 ounces of water every twenty minutes. If you will be exercising for longer than an hour, consider adding electrolytes your water or

using a sports drink. 2. Dress for the weather. Wear light coloured, loose fitting clothing attire to keep cool in the summer. Look for clothes made from synthetic technical Tanja fabrics (such SHAW as those labeled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coolmaxâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dri Fitâ&#x20AC;? instead of cotton. These technical fabrics are more comfortable

and will decrease chaffing. Also, be sure to wear sunscreen and a hat. 3. Avoid the midday sun. Get up an hour early to go for a run before work, or schedule your tennis game when it cools down in the evening. If possible, exercise in the shade where it is a little cooler. 4. Take it easy. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expect to have a fantastic workout in the heat â&#x20AC;&#x201C; your body does not function as well. Gauge your exercise intensity based on how you feel, not how fast you are moving. Slow

down a little and take extra water breaks to compensate for the rising mercury. 5. Watch out for signs of heat exhaustion. If you brave the heat, watch for signs of heat-related illness. These signs include excessive fatigue, headaches, dizziness, feeling faint, rapid heart beat, nausea and vomiting. Young children, older adults and pregnant women are more susceptible to experiencing negative effects of the heat. If you experience any of Continued: HEAT/ p27

these signs, get out of the heat and rest. If the symptoms persist for more than one hour, or if you have a fever, seek medical help. 6. Have a plan B. Even with the appropriate precautions, a long run in the hot sun is unpleasant and potentially dangerous. Have a back up plan when the heat becomes intolerable. Run on the treadmill in an air conditioned gym, or swap your weekly hike for a swim. While the summer presents many opportunities to be active, it is important to stay safe while exercising outdoors. Listen to your body when enjoying the summer sun. When in doubt, exercise indoors. If you are getting tired of the hot weather, remember that it won’t last forever. Soon enough you will be planning your outdoor endeavors around the endless days of winter rain…

Liason Board. “Moray and I have always viewed this as the community’s team and we’re just the caretakers,” Bond said. “We want some good feedback from the community, and we’re really really pleased to have Clint on board with this.” City councilor Chuck Stam was announced as the first board member of a group that will provide imput on everything from parking to promotions. Hames sees the board as a conduit from the team to the community. “The BCHL is a great league because it sends hundreds of kids to university every year, and a lot of the young fellas who play for the Chiefs are going to stay in our community,” Hames said. “That’s why I’m so committed to this project. The team’s success will be the community’s success and we want to make sure the values of our community are reflected in the decisions the team makes. Unless you have that you, I’m not sure you can be truly successful in a place like Chilliwack.”

Ticket prices unveiled The Chilliwack Chiefs rolled out their ticket prices Tuesday morning, promising excellent entertainment at affordable prices. “We want to attract a lot of people into the building,” said newly minted president Glen Ringdal as he revealed the numbers. “Price is a very important part of that and we are really focused on families and young people.” Indeed, the cost to the local fan will be considerably less than it was with the Western Hockey League, with an adult season-ticket package going for $279 and single game tickets costing $11. The cost for seniors is $229 for the season and $9 for a game. Students between the ages of 10-18 pay $169 for the season and $7 for a game. Children between the

ages of 3-9 pay $99 for a season and $5 for a game. The team has family packages as well. “We know that we’re going to grow our fans of the future by getting them involved when they’re young, and we’ve set prices that we hope will do exactly that,” Ringdal noted. “We’re going to have a family section in the rink, and that’s where the family packages come in.” One adult and one child will be able to take in 30 home games for $299 or one game for $15. Two adults and two children can get the season for $598 or one game for $30. Those who had season tickets previously with the Bruins, and even the previous version of the Chiefs, will be receiving an email from the new team. “In our business, season ticket holders are the life-

blood, and we think we’ve set prices that are competitive in the BCHL and in the marketplace,” Ringdal said. “And we’ll be letting them know that if they had season tickets and they liked their seats, they can grab them right now. We want to respect those people who have supported Chilliwack hockey in the past.” On the ice, head coach and general manager Harvey Smyl said the team will be running an evaluation camp Aug. 15 for players at the peewee, bantam and midget levels. A two-day rookie camp will run Aug. 22-23 followed immediately by main camp and the exhibition schedule. The team’s website is now up and running at www.chilliwackchiefs.net. The Chiefs can be reached by phone at 604392-4433.

Golf teacher turns attention to Hope Barry Stewart, Black Press It may be that there’s no such thing as a free lunch — but free golf lessons for kids? Well... it’s true. The Ladies’ group at the Hope Golf Course is sponsoring junior golf lessons taught by certified instructor Valerie Beebe, the new teaching pro at the local course. Lessons will be on

Mondays, starting July 11 and running for seven weeks. Beebe, who grew up in Ottawa but is now a Chilliwack resident, started teaching golf seven years ago at the Kinkora club in Chilliwack. She’s also a certified skating instructor and a former coach of artistic and rhythmic gymnastics. Her husband, Ross, builds golf clubs under

the Chimo Golf label. three-days-per-week “He builds the clubs basis. and I teach “It’s going to people how to be just beautiuse them,” says ful out here this Beebe. “I’ve summer,” she taught kids as enthused. “And young as three it’s going to be a years old and great fit for me. adults as old as I’ve met some of 73.” the ladies’ group Beebe says and they’re very Valerie she had never positive. It’s a BEEBE played the Hope great thing that course before they’re doing for she was invited to be the juniors.” the teaching pro on a A school teacher

from Lytton has been bringing her students down to Hope on a bus for various activities, said Beebe, and when she heard about the lessons she wanted to sign them up. U n d e r s t a n d a b l y, that caused some concerns, as the lessons were intended for Hope youths. “I’ve worked something out, though,” said Beebe. “I’ll be working with them for an hour,

earlier in the day.” Beebe and fellow teaching pro Jennifer Greggain were in Hope last week to discuss an exciting learn-to-golf program for kids. Greggain lives in Rosedale and works at the Bridal Falls course. There will be more details coming in August about their SNAG (Starting New at Golf) program, which will be offered through Hope and District Recreation in the fall. It has also been pro-

moted to local elementary schools, so there may soon be a lot of local kids getting introduced to this life-long game. To register your child, phone the golf course at 604-869-5881, or drop by the pro shop during daylight hours. To contact Beebe directly, phone 604-819-5445. Beebe will also continue her work at Kinkora, where she has been running a successful junior program on Wednesdays.

Cougars fall in final Chilliwack’s mosquito AAA baseball Cougars kicked off the summerball season by placing second at the 2011 Boulanger Tournament in Cloverdale last weekend. In tough against last year’s provincial champions, Abbotsford, the Cats fell 14-5 in the opener. Moving on, Alden Leiper and Travis Halladay had two hits each in a 5-3 win over Rutland and Wil Kushnir yk cleared the fences with a second inning grand slam to help the Cougars in a 10-6 victory over Nanaimo. Winning pitchers in those two games were Shawn MacMillan and Dylan Ohlsen.

Chilliwack dominated Richmond 13-1 in the semifinal, led by Dylan Merritt’s three hits. On the mound, Merritt got the win with help from closer Jesse Howden. The championship game was a rematch with Abby as the home team tried to solve the powerful Angels. Mike Fitzsimmons held back their quick sticks with five strikeouts through three innings. Down 4-1 in the fifth, the Cougars got four consecutive hits and a three-RBI double from Kushniryk to take a 5-4 lead into the final inning. But Abby retook the lead with two runs, and Chlliwack stranded two runners in scoring position, dropping the final 6-5.

Register soon for September Preschool

After three long years it is still hard to believe that you have left this world. Your mother, brother, sister and I want so much to hold you and to talk with you again, And see that charming, lovable look that you have when you say something witty. I am happy that, though our time together was by far too short, we have a friendship. We were able to be friends as well as father and son. Something I will always cherish. My hope is that the dads that are reading this tribute to you, Adrian, will contemplate the wealth of friendship that lies within their boys. And that the sons will open up to their dads. The rewards for both are endless. The most important thing a father has to be is a parent to his boy, but if it is possible for that father to be a friend of his son, he will reach a summit of emotional wealth, fulfillment and awareness that can’t be achieved otherwise. I often daydream about the things we should be doing together; shooting hoops, running, talking watching a movie or just hangin’ out. I love and respect you so much Adrian, my son…..my buddy.

Love; Dad, Mom, David and Brenda

and uncle. Abe was born in Cabri, Saskatchewan, travelled to BC with his family and was raised on the family farm in Yarrow. He was a long-time employee as an equipment operator for Elk Creek Waterworks and then for the City of Chilliwack, where he settled and raised his family. Dad coached girls’ softball and is remembered for his gentle manner, fun-loving sportsmanship and many victory game trips to the Dairy Queen in the back of his pickup. An avid gardener, hobby machinist and an enthusiastic BC day-tripper, Dad was also a great cook who loved nothing more than to share a home cooked meal with family. Abe is survived by daughters Terresa Rempel and Deborah Petrovitch, sisters Jessie Dyck and Rose Adrian (Peter), grandchildren Steven Rempel (Jacquie), Nyah Petrovitch and numerous nieces and nephews. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to the staff and volunteers at CGH and the Christine Morrison Hospice in Mission who provided such loving respect and care in his final days. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Riding Club Hall on July 16, 2011at 1:30.

She is survived by her Mother Violet, Brothers Allan (Susan), Pat and Sister Cindy (Tom), Nieces and Nephews, Aunts and Uncles and lots of Cousins. Debbie is predeceased by her Dad, Jim. During her life, Debbie met lots of interesting people whom over the years have stayed in touch with her, these people are her “Fan Club” (you know who you are). We wish to express our deepest gratitude to everyone who came and supported Debbie and us at the CGH and The Cascade Hospice. We are so thankful for the love and support from “Debbie’s Fan Club” in our time of need. Debbie has brought both of her families together. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to The Chilliwack Hospice Society, or to the charity of your choice. No service will be held, at the request of the family.
