Wall of mud

Traffic is lined up after being diverted at the Bridal Falls exit early Wednesday morning after a mudslide (above) closed the highway.

Just two days before the start of the Canada Day long weekend, a mudslide has closed Highway 1, after sweeping away at least one car and stopping a train. There were no reports of injuries. But as The Progress went to press, crews were still on scene searching the mud that was 15 metres deep in places. Search and rescue crews had to wait for geo-technical clearance before searching the debris following concerns more mud could come down. The slide occurred around 10:30 a.m. near Herrling Island. Police say the slide is extensive making it difficult for teams on the ground to determine if more vehicles are involved. “At this point we cannot confirm if more than one vehicle has been involved in the mud slide,” said Sgt. Peter Thiessen, spokesperson for the Lower Mainland District Regional Police Service. “We know one vehicle was involved, but those occupants are safe and accounted for.” The mud extends across both east and westbound lanes, and crossed over the CN Rail mainline. Lynn Orstad, emergency program co-ordinator with the Fraser Valley Regional District, said the mudslide appears to be “a pretty fluid slide” with some large woody debris, but “mostly water and mud.” She said slide is reportedly about 40 meters wide – enough to cover both lanes – and 15 meters deep, It’s located in the same area as previous slides, but “I think this one’s going to be bigger,” she said.

Caroline steps out for Canada Day Greg Knill The Progress Gord Wozencroft lowers himself through the hatch and settles into the metal driver’s seat, made a little softer by a thin layer of foam padding. It’s hardly a graceful maneuver. Wozencroft is not a small man, and Sherman tanks weren’t built for comfort. On his left is an olive-green box with a few dials and switches. Wozencroft fingers a switch in the lower centre, waits a second, then turns. The mighty power of a Detroit Diesel engine coughs to life. A hint of diesel mingles with the guttural throb of a motor two metres behind him. At his right hip spins a massive drive shaft that carries power to the transmission at his side and to the sprockets that drive the tracks outside. Wozencroft smiles. Caroline has new life. •••

For more than 30 years a Sherman tank has sat near the cenotaph at Sappers park at the corner of Keith Wilson and Vedder Road. It was climbed on, photographed, researched, written about, criticized and venerated. How it ended up there is a story in itself. But it’s not this story. This story is about how the tank – named after the daughter of the man who first saved it from certain destruction, and then from possible relocation – was resurrected. A Sherman tank is not a rare thing in the world of military artifacts. One of the most iconic images of the Second World War, the Sherman was manufactured by the thousands. Finding a Sherman that actually works, however, is a more difficult thing. More than 50,000 tanks were produced during the war, often faster than the engines could be supplied. It was the main battle tank of the U.S. Army, but it also served the Canadians, British, Russians and even the Chinese. It fought its way from the deserts of North Africa, up the spine of Italy and off the beaches of Normandy. When the war ended and the tanks decommissioned, most were scrapped, used as target practice, or enshrined as monuments at the entrance to military bases like Chilliwack. Brooke Quam is not a man of many words. But to him, the Sherman was the finest tank of the Second World War. Sure, it couldn’t slug it out with a Panther at 500 yards, he says. But that’s not what it was meant to do. Its greatest assets were mobility and reliability. Properly supported, or

operating from a concealed position, it could take on the best the enemy had. Quam is no stranger to military equipment. He’s part of a tight confederacy of enthusiasts who volunteer their time at the Canadian Military Education Centre at the former CFB Chilliwack. He’s a kind of mechanical magician, says Wozencroft, himself the owner of two military vehicles, including a three-quarter ton M37 weapons carrier. Wozencroft and Quam have been the foot soldiers in the reclamation of Caroline. It’s been a process requiring both mechanical wizardry and political dexterity. The politics came early. In 2008, as plans were being made to redevelop the cenotaph site, it was learned that the military intended to move Caroline out of the city. While negotiations dragged on, a group of Caroline supporters dragged something else – the tank. They pulled the vehicle from the cenotaph into the military museum compound a few hundred metres away. Liberated – but still not totally free – Caroline had to wait for official government word that Chilliwack would remain her home. That word finally did come, thanks to strong political and public support that included a 1,800name petition. Rollie Keith, a veteran tank driver and instructor who gave

Caroline her name decades ago, helped marshal that support. It was the second time the retired army officer helped save the tank, and Keith counts those two victories among his most important in a career pocked by military and political engagements. But while Caroline was no longer in danger of being moved out of Chilliwack, her fans weren’t satisfied yet. They wanted to do something many thought impossible: Get the vehicle back in running order. First they had to secure permission. Caroline is technically the property of the military. It’s entrusted to the 39th Combat Engineers still stationed in Chilliwack, who have stewardship over the tank and had plans to put it on display. Wozencroft, delicately threading his way through these various levels of command (and mending bridges along the way), sought permission to convert the tank into what was deemed a “running monument.” There were some reservations, but several months ago approval was granted. But how do you return the shell of a tank into a functioning machine? Much of the working parts had been stripped out decades ago, including her motor. Quam never had any doubts it could be done. He already had many of the necessary parts, including an engine that he kept in his shop.

How did he happen to have a spare motor for Sherman tank? “I always knew I wanted a tank,” he says dryly, “so I thought I better start collecting the pieces.” Using a large hoist from one of the vintage military trucks on site at the museum, the volunteers gingerly lowered the motor into the engine compartment. The radiator was adapted from an old

bus; the fuel injectors removed and cleaned, hoses replaced and reattached. When the battery was finally attached and the ignition switched on, Caroline moved under her own power for the first time in maybe half a century. Wozencroft estimates he and Quam have spent more that 500 hours getting the tank to this point. Still others have contributed their time, their money, their expertise and their enthusiasm. For Quam, the thrill is seeing a legendary piece of machinery reanimated. For Wozencroft, it’s about preserving a piece of history for the men who once rode the tank into battle: a crew of five that worked shoulder-to-shoulder while the threat of an 88mm anti-tank shell could end their lives in a fiery second. It’s about veterans still alive who remember those tanks, and for the generations who have since grown up in a peace earned by their efforts. Caroline never saw battle (although she does have some war wounds from her days on the target range). She was one of the last Shermans built and models like hers were used by Canada in the Korean war. Because of that Korean connection, Caroline has been repainted to match that era. She’ll be on display for the first time at the Canada Day celebrations at Heritage Park on Friday. Veterans and the general public are invited to drop by and sign a special commemorative book. • Take a video tour inside Caroline. Find this story online at www.theprogress.com

B.C.’s provincial sales tax is dead – for now – but a Chilliwack businessman is fighting a $106,000 bill after he stopped collecting the PST from customers five years ago on the advice of a B.C. government auditor. Wide Plank Hardwood owner Hans Baer said he didn’t keep a written record of the auditor’s advice in 2005, and now the B.C. Finance Ministry has rejected his appeal of the tax assessment. He said the company didn’t make any money by not charging the PST, and the 12-year-old firm had a clean record of diligently collecting the tax before the auditor advised dropping the PST on certain options for custom work. “It was their (auditor’s) confusion that caused this problem,” he said. “We’re completely the victim of this.” He said the company can’t very well go back to customers now, as the ministry suggested, and ask them to cough up the uncharged PST five years later. “If the (Harmonized Sales Tax) had been in place five years ago, we wouldn’t be where we

are today,” Baer said. Valerie Leroux, the company’s bookkeeper, said the auditor’s advice was accepted because it was assumed he was a professional who knew his way around the complicated tax. “You wouldn’t ask your doctor to back up his advice with documents,” she said. “They (auditors) are the professionals, that’s what we were going by.” Baer is now asking the ministry to “revisit” the case, and to provide the company with all the documents on its file, including the auditor’s notes. But that is proving a tall order since the PST bureaucracy was dismantled in July last year when the HST came into effect. Chilliwack MLA John Les said he is in touch with Baer, and after a meeting to get more details he will “plug in” to the ministry and “try to get them some help.” “I hope I can help them because obviously they are innocent victims of an arcane and difficult to understand tax,” he said. “The PST was probably easily the most hated tax in the business sector,” he said, and small business owners in B.C. often found themselves “huge amounts

in arrears” because of confusion over how to apply the tax. “It’s no surprise small businesses are as supportive of the HST as they are,” he said. But Les wouldn’t flatly agree that it would be politically smart for the finance minister to give the Chilliwack company a break, in light of the government’s drive to keep the HST. “If they are eligible for a break, they should be given every consideration,” Les said. “It’s safe to say, if we have to go back to the PST,” the outcome is going to be “very discouraging” for the company, he said. A referendum to decide whether to dump the HST and go back to the PST is now underway with a July 22 deadline for voters to cast ballots. With the $106,000 debt hanging over him, Baer said the “busy little company” is struggling to hold onto its share of the custom-flooring market, and several employees have lost their jobs as a result. If market conditions were better, he said the company could cut its losses and move on, “but in times like today ... sometimes it feels to me like I just started my business all over again.”

Apartments will be adaptable for seniors The Progress Chilliwack’s housing stock cannot be described as “age-friendly” noted a city staff member at the June 21 council meeting. But that may be about to change. Fifty per cent of all apartments built after Jan. 1, 2012 will have to conform to “adaptable standards” contained in the B.C. Building Code, following a council vote at the last meeting for staff to draft such a bylaw. “What it does is plans for seniors to age in place,” said Kurt Houlden, director of city planning, by way of introduction. The new bylaw would impact builders of new apartments at the construction stage. Adaptable standards include building wider doorways and hallways in apartments to accommodate wheelchairs, as well as reinforced walls for grab bars to be installed washrooms. It’s also making sure there’s adequate room to turn around in a washroom with a walker or wheelchair, and installing doors and faucets that open and close easily. These standards are contained within the B.C. building code but municipalities can opt into them by varying degrees. After two rounds of quality of life surveys conducted in Chilliwack in

recent years, it became clear it was of prime importance for aging citizens to be able to stay “independent” and in their homes for as long as possible, said Coun. Pat Clark, chair of a housing sub-committee looking at the issue. “We wanted to make a start with this and build up the stock,” she said, adding that half of the apartment stock in Chilliwack is more than 30 years old. The new bylaw affecting apartments a “great compromise” for the city, said Coun. Sue Attrill. “It’s also a really responsible way to address an issue.” Clark said the sub-committee members sought ideas that were both practical and doable, and this one emerged from the options. They knew it was possible, since other municipalities had implemented similar bylaws. “I hope that builders will see that these building criteria will be beneficial to the people who will be looking to rent from them,” she said. “These are characteristics that are good for everyone.” The standards bylaw is clear recognition by council that steps will need to be taken to care for aging baby boomers in the community, said Coun. Ken Huttema. “I can appreciate the foresight needed to implement this,” he said.

R AESIDE

Celebrate our flag It’s hard to believe Canada’s flag, the Maple Leaf, was the subject of contentious and divisive debate before it was adopted in 1965 to replace the venerable Red Ensign. It has now become one of our most beloved symbols, and it’s one of the most recognized flags in the world. In fact, travelers still abide by the rule of thumb that when venturing to difficult lands, a Canadian flag sewn onto a lapel or backpack will enhance their safety. But it almost didn’t happen. When Prime Minister Lester Pearson decided it was time for Canada to have its own distinct flag, the leader of the opposition Conservatives, John Diefenbaker, would have none of it. Despite clinging to a slim minority government, Pearson persisted. A committee was formed, designs commissioned then discussed, and the rest is history. But in and of itself a flag is just a graphic design. It’s how a country’s citizens see themselves, and how they carry themselves in the world that imparts a flag with meaning. In that regard, George F.G. Stanley’s design, an 11-point red maple leaf on a field of white bracketed by two red bars, has been an overwhelming success. Today, when the Maple Leaf flutters in the breeze, we think of an expansive land of disparate natural beauty, populated by welcoming, tolerant, hard-working and fair-minded people. We feel pride as a place of peace. We value and celebrate the various cultures that have found their way to us. We revel in our role as an international underdog, in diplomatic and athletic pursuits. We’re humble to a fault. As a statesman and diplomat, Pearson likely already knew all this. That’s why he felt confident enough to press on, risking his government. Canada already had an identity; we just needed our own symbol to identify with. ~ Black Press

The power of a good teacher goes beyond the classroom With yet another school year coming to an end, I’ve been thinking lately about the power of teachers. Some say they have no power, they’re just glorified babysitters. And to that, I shake my head in disbelief. A teacher has the ability to positively affect children – to change their lives, really. They also have the ability to scar them. How can you not call that power? Twelve years in the Abbotsford school district, I was lucky enough to have had four unforgettably incredible teachers, two in elementary school and two in high school. This week, after 26 years – a full career – at the same school, Ms. Duma, my Grade 5 teacher at Bradner elementary, took a final teaching bow.

The Chilliwack

Progress

Today, I give her thanks. It is because of Ms. Duma that my dear husband runs from the room ever y time I start singing. Not only was she my Grade 5 teacher, she also taught choir and handbells. And it Katie didn’t matter how BARTEL loud, or how out of tune I sang Winter Wonderland, she never shut me up, never banned me from the music room, never tried to dissuade my singing desires, not once. In fact, I am so sure her conductor signals were actually telling me to belt it out even louder. And so, Ms. Duma, I thank you

for my love of singing Christina Aguilera’s I Am Beautiful at the top of my lungs. Deep down, my husband does, too. It is because of Ms. Duma, and a postcard from Peru, that my dreams of travel were first ignited. It was in my year that she and her husband adopted a baby from Peru. They left in May of that school year and while some teachers wouldn’t have looked back in their heightened excitement of starting a family, she did. Many times. We received regular updates of her travels, and that summer break, I received a postcard from her with an Inca woman dressed in traditional attire. It was in that postcard that she informed me she would be bringing home not one, but two babies. We all got

postcards, and I still have mine and the embroidered pin of an Inca woman stored in my most precious treasures. And so, Ms. Duma, I thank you for starting my jet-setting dreams. It is because of Ms. Duma that my standards for other teachers skyrocketed. Ms. Duma never forgot her students. Not when she was becoming a new mom in Peru, not when students transferred to new schools, and most definitely not when they were feeling alone and scared in a cold, sterile hospital bed at B.C. Children’s Hospital. That year, just one year post-diabetes diagnosis and the start of my downward spiral of disease denial, I spent a lot of time in the hospital. But there was always a card, a

giant handmade card, the size of a poster board folded in half, wishing me better with signatures and funny comments and drawings from the entire class – at the prompting of my dear teacher. And so, Ms. Duma, I thank you for those nights when I so desperately needed comfort, of being able to find those warm, fuzzy feelings every time I opened those cards. It’s been 23 years since I was in Ms. Duma’s class, and thanks to Facebook, to this day, she continues to make me feel like I am one of the most special, talented, beautiful people on this Earth. That is the power of an amazing teacher. That is what every classroom needs.

Farmers voice HST support As an organization that represents thousands of farmers and ranchers from across the province, the BC Agriculture Council (BCAC) is clearly and unequivocally in favour of retaining the HST, and not going back to the archaic dual tax system of the GST plus PST. It would appear from the statements coming from both the FightHST group and, more recently, from the B.C. NDP, that both groups do not appreciate that B.C. farm businesses have benefited from the implementation of the HST. Of particular concern is the ongoing messaging that the HST is somehow a massive tax shift from “big business” to families and small businesses. Do B.C. farm families who run small businesses not count in this equation? They certainly do benefit from the HST, and would like desperately to keep it in place. The reason we say “desperately” is because the sector is

hurting. This reality is reflected in Statistics Canada numbers, which show that B.C. agriculture has been in negative net farm income territory for five consecutive years. While the overall annual benefit of the HST, an estimated $15-$20 million to agriculture’s bottom line, makes up only a portion of the loss in farm income, it is the first substantively beneficial policy change for B.C. agriculture that has been made by any provincial government in many years. B.C. farmers are so positive about the HST system because the old PST system was, quite simply, broken. It was broken under your Social Credit government, Mr. Vander Zalm, and it remained broken through the years of both the NDP government and the first nine years of Liberal government. This is why the BCAC had been in ongoing discussions with successive provincial governments advocating an overhaul of the PST system,

and why year after year after year agriculture tried to get items added (usually unsuccessfully) to an outdated PST “farm exemption list”. While it was the stated intent of government to exempt agriculture and food production from the tax, it would only agree to add items that could not be used for anything but farming. A prefabricated gate was PST exempt, but the building materials to construct a gate were not – go figure. Given agriculture’s rapidly changing technology, the process for adding items was overly bureaucratic and slow – in other words broken. The implementation of the HST simplified and fixed the broken PST system – and it has put B.C. farm families in a better position to compete with lower priced imported products, which benefits all British Columbians.

B.C. Liberals love Wall Street Re: Tax my car, not my income (B.C. Views, June 15). Tom Fletcher can nitpick all he wants about the proper identification of the government’s July 2010 tax increase on private vehicle sales. As an alternative, maybe his beloved government should have considered rescinding the dealer tax on used vehicles. Most people buy used cars and other

used products because they can’t afford to buy new. In reality, this is just another tax that hits those who can least afford it. After slogging through all the statistics, graphs, and piecharts concerning the HST, one thing struck me: The province raises 14 per cent of its money from the HST, 14 per cent from personal income taxes, and only

four per cent from corporate income taxes. The province spends 42 per cent of its revenues on health and 27 per cent on education. Corporations benefit greatly from an educated and healthy workforce. It reduces their training costs, and unlike companies in the U.S. they don’t have to shell out huge amounts for heath insurance. That in itself provides

a big cost advantage for B.C. companies. So why aren’t these companies paying their fair share? Over the years our government has increasingly catered to the values of Wall Street and Madison Avenue. You know – those buzzing little stick people on TV. Now, if only it could rediscover Main Street. Mike Divine New Westminster

Fletcher arrives in 20th Century Re: A hard look at your choices (B.C. Views, June 22). Tom Fletcher’s column name “BC Views” suggests views that are antiquated (“Before Christ”), but his thinking is as modern as the early 20th Century when Canada had minimal governmental support for people who were poor or homeless or

unemployed. Yet Mr. Fletcher’s views are part of a healthy public debate on the use of scarce taxpayer dollars, and his defence of the HST is laudable on strictly economic grounds. Opponents to the HST worry about the social cost of shifting more of the tax burden away from businesses and onto

individuals and families. We are not wanting to “throw a $3-billion chair through the office window” but protest a sneaky government tax initiative that has added to our daily expenses.

Cultus Lake. The Pacific Salmon Foundation and the Fraser Basin Council are earmarking $44,000 from the joint Fraser Salmon & Watersheds Program (FSWP) to monitor nutrient levels — like phosphorus and nitrogen — in Cultus Lake. Led by DFO scien-

tists and the Fraser Basin Council, the nutrient monitoring project stems from the Cultus Lake Aquatic Stewardship Strategy (CLASS) that seeks to balance the ecological and recreational significance of Cultus Lake, said Marion Robinson, president of CLASS. With millions of visitors to the area every year, it’s putting pressure on the resource. “We have identified nutrient loading as both a serious ecological issue and a significant social concern for users of the watershed, as population densities and development continue to increase,” she said. As a first step, the monitoring project will draw on volunteers and scientific experts

Horse rescue: ‘You never know what a day will bring,’ says RCMP Horse pulled from river A local horse wrangler lassoed a horse that had fallen into the Vedder River yesterday, and successfully guided it to safety. Police said the horse and its 31-year-old female rider were walking along the river’s edge near Hopedale Road, when the horse was spooked

and fell into the fast-moving water. The rider made it out, but the horse was swept downstream. “The horse was spotted a few times as it passed Yarrow and made its way down the Vedder Canal,” RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said.

An RCMP Zodiac was launched and two members of the RCMP First Nations Policing unit picked up a local horse wrangler, who was also trying to rescue the horse from a small boat. After two hours in the icy water, police reached the horse near the Keith Wilson bridge where the wrangler managed to lasso the horse

and guide it to shore. “As a police officer, you never know what a day will bring,” Wolbeck said. “It’s pretty miraculous that the horse and rider made it out unharmed, and that our members were able to respond as quickly as they did,” she said. “It was a happy ending for everyone.”

Fewer than a dozen Northern spotted owls are left in B.C. so it is critical to save any prime habitat that’s left for them. That’s the rationale behind the Western Canada Wilderness Committee plan to host a Canada Day Campout near Chilliwack Lake, as way to help save a spotted owl forest from proposed logging, said Joy Foy, national campaign director for WCWC. The conservation group was contacted recently by residents of the Chilliwack River Valley opposed to the idea of logging being allowed inside a Wildlife Habitat Area (WHA). Part of the problem is that they’re picking out the best habitat, older forests with bigger trees, Foy noted. “What they discovered was that these protected areas were not keeping logging out but rather they were attracting it,” he said. The only hint locals had that a timber harvest was being planned by Tamihi Logging “was the brightly coloured logging

tape they found fluttering in the breeze to mark off cutblocks,” Foy said. “To allow logging inside a WHA that the public thinks has been protected and set aside for spotted owls, is patently dishonest.” It’s galling says the WCWC rep because the province originally protected this particular forest a few years back after pressure was applied by the federal government over declining numbers of spotted owl. “We aim to do everything we can do to see the logging of spotted owl habitat stopped so that this remarkable creature and all the other species that need forest habitat are given a fighting chance to survive,” he said. The province began work this year to expand the territory of WHAs, where logging is not allowed “except” in the case of several cutblocks. “They inserted that one little word — except,” said Foy. “And the reason they did it was to try to protect the spotted owl without having any impact on cutting. So they’re trying to do both at once, but in a grossly over-logged land-

scape like the Chilliwack River Valley, they can’t do it.” The attitude seems to be with the licensees’ approaching their last kick at the can, “so let’s kick it hard,” said Foy. The number of endangered animal and plant species in B.C. is growing. “Our bottom line is that in spotted owl territory, which is only in the southwest corner of the province, we need to be protecting all the habitat that’s left.” There may be no owls remaining in the Chilliwack River Valley, but now it’s a matter of “holding onto” whatever habitat is remaining to help get them back from the brink of extirpation, Foy said. The Canada Day Campout will feature guided hikes through the forest and surrounding trails, as well as a discussion on the importance of protecting forests for the survival of local fish and wildlife. “I think when people see how beautiful this forest is they are going to be in heaven camping here and are going to want to help save it,” said Foy. jfeinberg@theprogress.com

School district draws heat from investigation HEAT from Front support services to be provided to the student through the year. Typically parents and schools work together in formulating IEPs. “That was a crucial year for this child because she would be transitioning to high school,” said TurpelLafond. And without a parent or any other advocate acting on her behalf, “who was planning for this child’s transition to high school? It was left entirely to someone in the school. Was that a meaningful process? No it wasn’t.” Turpel-Lafond said schools need to learn from this case. “They need to ensure that if mom’s not coming, someone from the Ministry for Children and Family Development needs to come in place of mom so that there’s real planning that keeps the focus on the needs of

the child.” Chilliwack superintendent Corinne McCabe felt the schools had done a good job at trying to communicate with both the child’s mother and the ministry, but agreed improvements could be made. “We will be studying the details in the report and the recommendations in the report very carefully and looking at all of our practices to ensure that students with special needs, who are in challenging situations, are given adequate supports,” said McCabe. The Ministry for Children and Family Development (MCFD) is developing an action plan in response to the report. The Ministry of Education is working with MCFD, but at this time has no plans of commissioning a separate investigation.

They’re planning a Christmas in July push for donations on July 8 and 9, with a goal of raising $15,000 to feed the hungry. “We’ll be out in the community with our famous kettles and a cheery smile on those two days,� he said. Before that they’ll be looking for additional kettle volunteers.

With free transfer-in*, flexible payment options, cash back and great low rates, it makes sense to switch to a CIBC mortgage today. *Excludes existing lender charges2

Because there are no homes in the area, Orstad said, no homes have been affected. Kurt Edmunds, operations manager with the department of highways, said crews are clearing what is largely a “debris flow� that’s started very high up the mountainside. He said about 4,000 to 6,000 cubic metres of mostly mud and organic material came down the mountainside with enough momentum to cover the eastbound lane. But trees and bushes in the median kept it from flowing into the westbound lane.

He said this section of highway is patrolled regularly and there was “no indication� a slide was imminent. He said there is also no indication that more slides could occur. Edmunds blamed heavy rain and snow melt for the slide. MLA Barry Penner agreed. He said the BC government has spent a significant amount of money to prevent slides in this area. “There are times when Mother Nature is stronger than all of us.� Police say Highway 1 will likely reopen Thursday at midnight. Motorists heading east are being diverted to Highway 9 at the Bridal Falls exit and over to Highway 7.

Travel Nota Bene Sicily’s baroque treasure Judi Lees Meridian Writers’ Group NOTO, Italy—After a splendid morning spent driving through a sunlit landscape spangled with orange groves, lemon trees and palms, I steer our little rental car up a series of narrow, meandering streets. My friend doesn’t say a word as I negotiate hairpin curves—after two days driving in Sicily, we have an unspoken rule not to talk during what could be stressful times. However, this hilly route to the town of Noto turns out to be rather peaceful. We see no signs of life, and many of the streets are oneway. For a time, it seems as if we are lost in a maze. Then we arrive at our destination and gasp in delight at what is surely one of Europe’s prettiest tucked-away baroque treasures. Noto (pop. 23,000), in the southwestern tip of Sicily, was named a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2002. It has a disaster four centuries ago to thank for the designation: in 1693, the town was the epicentre of a massive earthquake, which led to its rebuilding in a lavish style that came to be known as Sicilian baroque. The result is an architecturally splendid city of flamboyant churches, palaces and civic buildings, decorated with richly carved columns, grotesque masks, towering belfries and elaborate wrought-iron balconies. A stroll along the old town’s main

avenue, Corso Vittorio Emanuele, and connecting streets shows us some of the highlights. As we enjoy the Palazzo Ducezio, once one of Noto’s fine private homes, now the town hall, we can’t get over how quiet everything is. Here we are in the central piazza and we see so few people! (The modern section of Noto, along Viale Marconi, we will later find, is much busier.) Touring with guidebook in hand we feel a little bit like we’re visiting a deserted movie set. We climb the ornate staircase of San Francesco church and admire the

balconies of the Palazzo Nicolaci, festooned with weird faced masks and mythological characters. One of my favourite buildings, among the many memorable sights, is the Palazzo Landolina, once home to the city’s oldest noble family. It was one of this family’s members, Giovanni Battista Landolina, who planned and laid out the new baroque town. Noto’s elevation to UNESCO World Heritage status has helped with the restoration of some of its exquisite buildings to their former glory. The best example is the Palazzo Villadorata, aswirl in richly brocaded walls and sumptuously frescoed ceilings. As well as enjoying the wonderfully florid baroque architecture, my friend and I have another quest in Noto: to find dessert heaven. My friend had seen a story in the New York Times on the Caffè Sicilia, whose fourth-generation owner/chef, Corrado Assenza, is well-known by food lovers, especially those fond of ice cream and pastries. We easily find the café, then the difficult choices follow: do we go with a Sicilian favourite, the yummy cannoli, or try the unique basil gelato or a cake that oozes with pistachios and orange peel? Or do we just go baroque and have a helping of everything?

By adding some very special late summer blooming perennials, you can make an enormous difference to the whole look and feel of your garden. When many other garden plants have finished blooming, these perennials will look good even while tolerating the intense heat and drought of late summer, as well as the cool evenings and occasional heavy rains of early fall. At the very top of my list of favourites are the rudbeckias. Perhaps one of Brian the finest of all the rudbeckias is the MINTER truly hardy variety R. ‘Goldsturm’. Growing about two feet high with deep golden petals surrounding a dark brown button, ‘Goldsturm’ just keeps pouring out the colour well into October. ‘Early Bird Gold’ is a newer version of ‘Goldsturm’ that blooms two weeks earlier and still keeps going until late fall. Both these varieties will give you many weeks of great colour. Echinacea has been more recently sold as a herb because of its healing properties, but it also has exquisite flowers. ‘Echinacea purpurea’ is sold as the herbal variety, but pink E. ‘Magnum’ and the white flowering ‘White Swan’ are classy looking plants that add an unique quality to summer gardens. They last well, even tolerating some frost, and the spent blossoms make interesting

dried flowers. In shady spots or in full sun, perhaps the most elegant of all the late summer perennials are the Japanese anemones. Dwarf or tall, white, pink or dusty rose, these plants are a definite hit, blooming as early as August. The yellow-centered anemone blossoms always have a fresh look about them, and they combine well with so many other perennials or shrubs. The white varieties especially brighten up shady areas. For some early fall tones, add a bit of fire to your flower beds with crocosmias. For years they were called montbretia and sold as tiny bulbs, but today they are usually sold in ‘bud and bloom’ as perennials. Crocosmias need a somewhat sheltered spot and very well drained soil, but wow, do they ever add spice to our gardens with their fire-orange freesia-type blossoms! Crocosmia ‘Lucifer’ is an exceptional scarlet red variety from Blooms in England, but don’t ignore a RHS introduction called ‘Solfatare’ with its golden orange flowers. ‘Emily McKenzie’ is one of my favourites because of its orange flowers with striking bronze throats. Lush looking fall sedums are especially important at this time of year. The succulent foliage of ‘Autumn Joy’ and ‘Brilliant’ certainly looks great all summer and never stresses out in drought situations. As the rosy pink blossoms open, they provide refreshing new colour for weeks. They combine well with Continued: COLOUR/ p15


Keep the colour coming COLOUR from p14 low-growing conifers or small flowering shrubs like potentillas. As the pink flowers turn bronze, they should be left on the plant for a rather charming dried ‘fall look’. Old fashioned Michaelmas daisies are still great for fall colour, but dozens of new, more compact

Local singers host benefit

Harrison gears up for fest

Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Pieces of Eight is back this weekend with its 3rd annual benefit concert, running July 2-3 at the UFV Theatre in Chilliwack. The group of young singers from Chilliwack is raising its profile each time it performs. But it began with a rather humble goal in 2008 — learning a particular English madrigal for a festival, says founder and group member Nicola Davies. It has certainly expanded its vocal repertoire since then. “Four years later, Pieces of Eight loves to sing anything, in any style, that takes its fancy,” says Davies. The vibrant vocal octet combines classical a cappella music with staged musical theatre and contemporary songs, in programs that could be said to be serious and beautiful, to the decidedly tonguein-cheek. For this year’s program they’re singing favourites like ‘Sweet Caroline,’ and ‘Tis the Last Rose of Summer,’ King’s Singers style, to selections from the new ‘Shrek the Musical,’ to an eerie piece by Dutch composer Marius Flothuis. It will go from full ensemble numbers, to solos and duets, with a touch of ‘creative’ instrumentation, says Davies. Pieces of Eight chooses a new local charity to support each summer, focusing on local organizations that benefit youth. This year, the group has chosen Ann Davis Transition Society, with 100 per cent of proceeds from ticket sales going to this well-established Chilliwack charity, she says. ADTS supports victims of violence and abuse through a range of programming, such as counselling for past or current family violence or sexual assault. It has developed programs for children affected by violence, as well as family therapy and mediation, and supervised access visits for men and women. Support groups are established for parents; for men and women dealing with anger; abuse, sexual assault, and/or family violence; and children 4-18 whose parents have divorced or separated. Last year, the group raised money for The Feed the Children program through the Optimist Club, and the Chilliwack Academy of Music, and were able to give $2000 to these organizations, Davies says. There are two concerts to choose from: Saturday July 2 at 7:30 p.m., and Sunday July 3 at 2 p.m. at the University of the Fraser Valley Theatre, Chilliwack.

Leaders Of Tomorrow

Chilliwack’s Leaders of Tomorrow I

n a time of ever-growing tuition fees and living costs, scholarships are a beautiful thing. They can pave the way to higher learning for those who had no previous avenue. And they can ease the pressures of moving on, making success even more attainable. And for the nine students on the following pages, we hope that’s the case. This year’s winners are Michaela McManus, Olivia Prachnau and Allan Meldrum from G.W. Graham; Jacob Deacon, Lois Shellard and

Shannon Baier from Chilliwack senior; and Sarah Maleska, Alana See and Audra Toews from Sardis secondary. These are students who dive headlong into their studies, each and every day. Whether focusing on arts or sciences, math or athletics, they consistently set the bar higher for themselves and everyone around them. Yet they’ve still found the time and energy to push themselves beyond the confines of a conventional classroom, excelling in community

spirit, volunteerism and social awareness. They actively pursue knowledge, skills and experience by reaching out into the community to lend a hand. In short, they are making Chilliwack a better place for all of us to live. And for that, they are being recognized by their teachers and the community as the Leaders of Tomorrow. We wish all nominees and winners the best in education and in life, as they truly are the 2011 Leaders of Tomorrow.

Profiles by Katie Bartel • Portraits by Jenna Hauck

Lois Shellard Lois Shellard’s advice for next year’s Grade 12 students: Start applying for scholarships now. The Chilliwack secondary school graduate left high school with at least $9,100 in her pocket for post-secondary. “Don’t not apply for scholarships just because you think someone else will get them,” said Shellard, who admitted she wasn’t the smartest person in her class, but because of hard work will be able to pay for her first year of nursing solely through scholarship money. “Start now. Start applying for every one you possibly can, because you just don’t know. If anything, you’ll be $500 richer.” Shellard knew early in her high school career she’d be going after scholarships and made it possible to focus all her energy on them in Grade 12 by finishing her academic and advanced placement courses in Grades 10 and 11. “Grade 11 was super stressful, but it paid off 100 per cent overall,” said Shellard. “This year I was able to do a lot more because I pushed myself.” Not only did she spend her grad year working on scholarships, but she was also able to enjoy her school community. She volunteered for the grad committee, the Youth-4-Youth club, the environmental club, took leadership, played senior girls volleyball, took four extracurricular music courses and sat on student council. “I was a major face at CSS because of the things I was involved in,” she said. “I feel like I can not only take initiative and lead by example, but I can also let other people talk, and let them take initiative. I can fall back and follow other leaders, which I think is just as much a leader quality as being the main face.” Shellard will be going into nursing at the University of the Fraser Valley in January. Shellard was awarded a $1,000 scholarship.

Leaders Of Tomorrow

Sarah Maleska Sarah Maleska has been “geeking” out on weather ever since she was five years old. Instead of watching cartoons, her eyes sparkled in wonderment at the doppler radar on the weather network. Instead of reading typical teenage novels, her nose was buried in weather books. For her 13th birthday, she begged her parents for a barometer. And at 15, when she spotted Vancouver weatherman Mark Madryga at a Jonas Brothers concert, her heart skipped a beat. “It was my favourite part of the concert,” the Sardis secondary graduate said, smiling at the memory of getting a snapshot taken with her favourite weatherman. “I knew if I didn’t approach him, I’d regret it.” Maleska’s interest in meteorology started out with the colour-rich beauty of rainbows, which led to other weather phenomena like lightening, thunder, hurricanes and tornados. “And then I started looking up more normal weather stuff, like trying to figure out what type of clouds were in the sky,” she said. “I just think weather’s really cool.” And while she can’t yet predict weather (despite her friends constantly asking her for weather updates) she hopes to one day be able to. Maleska will either be attending the University of the Fraser Valley or the University of Victoria this fall majoring in atmospheric sciences. She plans to either become a meteorologist or obtain employment at Environment Canada where she’ll be able to put her fluency in both French and Spanish to good use. Maleska was awarded a $500 scholarship.

Shannon Baier Most would likely view Shannon Baier’s schedule this past year as insane, but she saw it as opportunity. The Chilliwack secondary school graduate loaded her Grade 12 year up with advanced placement English 12, advancement placement history 12 and biology 12. She also held down two jobs to offset the costs of her car and “texting” addiction. And she did it all while preparing for graduation, applying to post-secondary institutions and vying for scholarships. “Everyone told me not to overload my Grade 12 year, that I’d want to take it easy, enjoy the year,” she said. “But I did enjoy it. I met new people, I made new friends.” She admits it wasn’t always easy, at times she was extremely stressed out, and that through the year, she operated on very little sleep. But with her goals for post-secondary clear in her head, she refused to slack off. Baier is going into the Bachelor of Arts program at UFV in September, majoring in history, minoring in English. She plans on becoming a history professor. It’s not a path she expected to go down. Going into Grade 12, Baier was sure she wanted to become an English professor. But when she was forced to take history to meet post-secondary requirements, she found a new love. “I loved learning about past wars and the Holocaust and learning about the intricate details of history,” she said. Baier believes people who take history in university take it because they love the course, not because it’s a prerequisite for other courses. “I think people who have a greater love of history are more mature,” she said. “And I would much rather teach a class full of students with a passion for the subject and who actually want to be there than students who don’t.” Baier was awarded a $750 scholarship.

Audra Toews Instead of going into university right away, Audra Toews wanted to build up her character resume. This fall, the Sardis secondary graduate will be attending Youth With a Mission (YWAM) bible school in London, England. “I want to take time to focus more on me growing as a person rather than just educationally,” she said. YWAM is an international Christian organization that teaches the gospel to impoverished communities throughout the world. For the first three months of the six-month mission, participants take part in intense bible training, and are then engrossed in an outreach mission. YWAM has several locations around the world, but Toews chose England for its royalty connections. “I love princesses,” she said, her infectious smile growing wider as she set free rapid-fire giggles. Following the six-month program, Toews will tour through Europe for a few months before returning home. It’ll be a well-earned break. For seven consecutive years Toews was a top academic student, getting across-the-board straight As. She was on the track and field team and the tennis club, was co-president of her school’s humanitarian club, was an active member of the math club and prayer club, and mentored Sardis secondary’s international students. She was also a volunteer in her church and youth group, where she organized a group of over 20 people to serve Haiti and helped raise $15,000 for earthquake relief. She volunteered for Kids Club, Rotary Book Sale, Gleaners, Operation Christmas Child, and participated in Me to We Day. “I don’t like to just do nothing,” she said. “I don’t like to waste opportunities.” And the fact that she’s got a personality that can get excited over almost anything is a magnet for getting others involved. After YWAM, Toews plans on enrolling at Trinity Western University to get her teaching degree. Toews was awarded a $1,000 scholarship.

Jacob Deacon He tinkers with motorcycles and reads Jane Austen – not exactly the typical combination for a teenage boy. Jacob Deacon, however, is anything but typical. The Chilliwack secondary school graduate has been accepted into the Bachelor of Arts program this September at the University of the Fraser Valley where he plans to focus his energies on his love of literature and creative writing. “I’m really passionate about writing and I want to work on getting better at it,” he said. But because writing is a difficult career to break into, Deacon, being ever practical, felt it imperative he have a secondary career to fall back on. And so, next September, he’ll temporarily push his writing passions aside in favour of another passion: motorcycles. Deacon has been accepted into the UFV trades program for automotive technology for the 2012 school year. “It’s a skill that could be really useful across the board,” he said. Deacon, who follows a mantra set by his late nanabapa (grandfather), expects to excel in both educational pursuits. “Whenever I’m faced with a situation, no matter what it is, I try to be passionate about it,” he said. “My nanabapa used to say that any job done with pride, whether you’re a CEO or cleaning bathrooms, is a job well done. And I’ve always tried to keep that attitude with everything I do. I always try to give 100 per cent, because if you don’t give 100 per cent, you’re not going to get 100 per cent.” Deacon was awarded a $500 scholarship.

Olivia Prachnau It wouldn’t be overly surprising to discover Olivia Prachnau actually has eight hands instead of just two, given how many school and community endeavors she’s had a hand in. The G.W. Graham middle secondary school graduate plays the flute, trombone, piano and guitar. She played trombone in the school’s jazz band and flute in the senior concert band. She peer tutored junior band classes and taught music to new students in summer music programs. She stage managed two GWG musical productions; performed with bands at community festivals; and also volunteered with the Chilliwack Lions Music Festival, the Rotary Book Sale, and the Mount Cheam Pony Club. “I like to be involved in different aspects of the community,” she said. “I think it’s really important to be involved.” With a list that long, however, some might have expected to see a frazzled girl running around like a chicken with her head chopped off. But that’s not Prachnau’s style. She’s far too organized to come frayed at the seams. “I’m an organizational freak, all my friends tease me about it,” she laughed. “I love to make charts and alphabetize and organize.” Initially Prachnau was interested in becoming a musical therapist but discovered the job market in that field wasn’t overly extensive. Instead, she plans on becoming a psychologist. “I want to go into field work with kids and teens,” she said. “Right now, it’s something I can relate to. I know some people my age who have gone through the system and there hasn’t been a lot help for them.” Prachnau hopes to change that. This fall Prachnau will be enrolled at the Vancouver Island University in Parksville. Prachnau was awarded a $500 scholarship.

Allan Meldrum Deciding to pursue music or science was a tough decision for Allan Meldrum. He loves both. For more than 10 years, the G.W. Graham middle secondary school graduate has been playing and composing piano compositions. He’s passed all the Royal Conservatory of Music grade levels, received first class honours in Grade 10 piano, composed the music for two G.W. Graham musicals, and this August will be taking the Associate of the Royal Conservatory of Toronto (ARCT) exam, the highest level of achievement with the Royal Conservatory. For the ARCT, Meldrum is required to perform 10 pieces in eight different categories, all memorized and all on the same day. He must get 75 per cent on the $500 exam to pass. It’s a goal he’s been working towards for two years. “It’s something not many people can say they’ve done,” he said. With the ARCT, Meldrum could have gone into composing or teaching, but instead, this September, he’ll be enrolled at the University of British Columbia with the intent of going into med school. “I really like music, but a career in the sciences and medicine is better I think,” said Meldrum, who was awarded a $40,000 UBC major entrance scholarship, which is awarded to outstanding academic students. At GWG Meldrum had a 98 per cent grade point average overall. Meldrum’s decision to go into medicine was made clear in biology 12, which focuses on the human body. “I liked how so many tiny things come together to make a complex body work,” he said. And with medicine, “the fact that you’re able to correct tiny things to prolong a person’s life, I think that’s pretty cool.” Meldrum is going into the Bachelor of Science program at UBC, majoring in pharmacology, which will enable him to learn both the chemistry and applications behind medicine. Meldrum plans on becoming a trauma doctor in the ER. Meldrum was awarded a $1,000 scholarship.

Alana See Not only is Alanna See leaving high school, she’s leaving competitive swimming. For 12 years, the Sardis secondary graduate has been speeding through the water, obtaining personal bests in fly swimming and freestyle competitions, and for the last four years, her training with the Spartan Swim Club has consisted of six days a week, three of which she was in the water by 5 a.m. – up at 4:15 a.m.. “I’m pretty good about mornings and while I’m not the best in the world, I just really love swimming,” said See, a trained lifeguard. “I love the friends I’ve made, and I really like the competitions ... cheering on my teammates and trying to beat my personal best times.” At her most recent swim competition, See finished the 100-metre fly in one minute 11 seconds, four seconds off her previous personal best, and the 800-metre freestyle in nine minutes 56 seconds, six seconds off her previous best. “I was really happy with my times and proud of myself,” she said. “I know all the time I put into my practice had finally paid off.” The dedication she showed in swimming was the same she had for school. She’s received consistent A honours, was the captain of the cross-country running team, and was a member of the leadership program. “I thought it was important to get involved because I feel people aren’t really involved as much as they should be in school,” she said. “It was a good way to experience all the different things at school.” See has mixed feelings about leaving both high school and swimming behind. “I find it sad that it’s all ending,” she said. “It’s weird because I’ve spent my whole life doing this, it’s something I’m used to, but now I’ll be starting new things.” See will be attending the University of British Columbia in September for Human Kinetics. She plans on becoming a physiotherapist. See was awarded a $750 scholarship.

Mikaela McManus The Energizer Bunny has nothing on Mikaela McManus. The G.W. Graham middle secondary school graduate isn’t often found sitting around. All through high school she excelled in sports including soccer, basketball, and field hockey. And when she wasn’t playing, she was organizing sporting events and managing sports teams. She was also a contributing member of the GWG music department and regularly volunteered within the community. And she kept her grades at a solid A average. How did she manage it all? “It sounds a lot more difficult on paper than it actually was,” she said. “Being busy comes naturally to me. I always have something on the go. I can’t sit still for very long, I have to be doing something.” She doesn’t plan on slowing down anytime soon. McManus is heading to the University of Victoria this fall to obtain a bachelor of physical education degree. She intends on becoming a P.E. and math teacher. “I loved P.E.,” she said. “And I don’t want it to end just because I’ve finished high school. I want to keep doing it, and so instead of playing, I’ll be coaching ... taking it to the next level.” McManus credits her “fantastic” P.E. and math teachers for her love of the two subjects, and hopes her future students will be inspired in the same way she was by her teachers. “The teachers and coaches that I looked up to, you could really tell they loved what they were doing; I found that so inspiring,” she said. “When you enjoy what you do, I think that comes across, you shine. And I hope that when I’m a teacher, that’s what I’ll be like with the things I love.” McManus was awarded a $750 scholarship.

Neighbours Terrina Mason: Smiling through adversity Nelson Mandela once said, “I would like to be bitter but there is no time to be bitter, there is work to do.” As Terrina Mason and I sat down for a little chat, I was reminded of this quote because Terrina didn’t particularly have a joyous upbringing. However, she’s not one to dwell on the past but rather, used the difficulties that she had to overcome, to her benefit. “I have always worked hard and realized, from a young age, that I had to work super hard, at everything that I did, to achieve my goals. I was babysitting by the age of 10 and using the money to buy my own clothes, for instance,” she said. Terrina and her family moved to Chilliwack when she was eight. “We were in Prince Rupert before that and it was a rough place to grow up, she admitted with a sigh. She was an active teenager and enjoyed sports; playing volleyball, basketball, field hockey and soccer all through junior high. She also took time to volunteer at the extended care unit at Chilliwack General Hospital. “This was important for me to do,” she said. By the time that she reached high school, she traded sports for business and began to take as many business classes as she could. After graduating from high school in 1984, she was unsure of her career path and began working in the service sector. Then, four years later, she packed up her MGB convertible and moved to Banff. “I needed to get away

to explore the world. I needed to know what was out there,” she said. The Olympics were in Calgary that year and she was hired by the Banff Centre, a globally respected arts, cultural and educational institution and conference facility. “I worked in the area of food services and we fed the RCMP during the Olympics. This was a huge facility and it was a neat experience. I met such a variety of people and living in staff housing is a different kind of experience. I did grow during my time away,” she reflected. Ana When she returned to MACEDO Chilliwack, she began working at the Chamber of Commerce in Harrison. “I put out their first ever Visitor’s Guide and had the opportunity of assisting with the Sandcastle Competition,” she said. While she was there, she heard of a Country Music Festival that was coming to Chilliwack. “I ran the office and coordinated over 1000 volunteers. It was quite the undertaking but then they left town and that didn’t end so well,” she chuckled. However, in typical Terrina fashion, she put that experience behind her and took on a job with the Holiday Inn Chilliwack. “I worked hard and wanted to be successful. I started off at the front

desk, then did the night audit, then accounting, then went into conference and catering and ended up managing that department, then became the sales manager and finally became the manager. I loved my time there and I loved the staff; we were a real team,” she enthused. Three years later, the course of her life changed forever. She took on the job as Operations Manager for the 1997 Chilliwack BC Summer Games for Athletes with a Disability. Following the Games, she was rear ended at high speed while exiting the freeway. This began a two year rehabilitation program and although rehab worked, she ended up with a permanent lower back injury and a not so healthy 180 pounds. “Fraser Valley Orthopedics and Sports Therapy encouraged me to work in the health and fitness industry and following the birth of my daughter in 1999 at 215 pounds, I hired a personal trainer and began my education in fitness and although I live with a permanent injury, the car accident was a blessing that has changed my life,” she explained. She has received certification from Canadian Fitness Education Services, Trinity Western University, Douglas College and Okanagan College as well as others and today is a certified personal trainer. “I continue to take classes each year so that I can expand my knowledge and in the end I can continue to help others succeed in

creating and maintaining a fit and healthy body and lifestyle. That is my goal,” she affirmed. Terrina loves her work and is going into her eleventh year as a self employed professional. Living Active Fitness Consulting, as her business is known, helps individuals with getting healthy, losing body fat, toning up, building muscle, increasing stamina, preparing for sport or work, and prenatal and postnatal training to name but a few. Between her duties as a certified personal trainer and being a mom to Sadie, who is the obvious apple

of her eye, her days are very busy and it’s not like she has a lot of spare time. However, in the interest of shopping local, something that Terrina is passionate about, she has developed a Shop Local program. “This is an online campaign committed to supporting locallyowned, independent businesses to fuel the local economy. An incentive to get Chilliwack consumers to shop local and support local businesses is a “win up to $5000 shopping spree” funded directly by its members; the local merchants and businesses of Chilliwack,” she explained.

The Chilliwack

Progress Eric

Welsh 604.702.5572 • sports@theprogress.com

Light shines bright at the end of the tunnel Eric J. Welsh, The Progress Forty-six weeks of chemotherapy looked like a mountain of Kilimanjaro proportion. Forty-six weeks of dizziness, fatigue, nausea, weight and hair loss. Forty-six weeks of hell. But time marched on. One week became two and two became a month. Summer turned into fall and then winter and suddenly there was a light at the end of this darkened tunnel. For the first time in a long time, there was hope. Hope that his story would end in triumph, not tragedy. As the weeks continued to roll by, did he allow himself to look ahead? Did he think about what it might be like to hear the one word cancer patients want to hear. Or would saying it out loud somehow compromise the chances of sitting in a doctor’s office in mid-July and hear him say the R word? Kyle Lorteau has never liked the phrase ‘knock on wood.’ Not a superstitious sort, he silently seethes as his friend Shannon uses the expression to cover her bases against the fickle whims of cosmic fate. Hoping to pass a test. Knock on wood. Hoping to avoid a cold. Knock on wood. “I hate that because I hate superstitions,” Kyle said. “And I always told her, ‘No! No more knocking on wood.’” He doesn’t believe in jinxes. He doesn’t believe in luck, unless it’s good. If there is one kid who is going to say the word remission without fear of cosmic backlash, it is Kyle. “I’ve never actually thought about chemo not working and me not beating the cancer,” he said. “I have thought lots about afterwards when it’s going to be no more chemo and just doing my thing. This whole time, I’ve just focused on wanting everything back the way it was.” And that’s just about where it is. Here we sit on June 30. After months of misery, Kyle is down to his last three weeks of chemo, with the final dose scheduled for July 25. There are no guarantees, not until the post-chemo tests come back clean.

Kyle Lorteau shares a laugh with friend Cassie Robertson and mom Flora during Chilliwack senior’s grad commencement ceremony at First Avenue Christian Assembly on June 11. To see a complete photographic slide show of this four-part feature on Kyle, go to www.theprogress. com and look for this final story in our sports section. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Even then, the 18-year-old will spend the rest of his life with regular checkups hanging over his head like the Sword of Damocles. But odds that were once stacked overwhelmingly in cancer’s favour have now tilted. Kyle is oh so close to being able to say he battled one of the worst cancers you can get, and beat the snot out of it. And then? “I don’t think I’ll ever be able to put it behind me and for a long time Monday’s are going to be coming and I’ll be dreading them,” he admitted. “It’ll be weird not having to do it anymore. But now I can go out and get a job, because I’m tired of borrowing money from everyone.” June 11, not July 25, was the day that kept Kyle going through weeks of chemo, endless visits to the Children’s Hospital and all the other bits and pieces of cancerrelated misery. On graduation day he would walk onto the stage with all of

his Chilliwack secondary school friends, receive his high school diploma and celebrate the closing of one chapter and opening of another. For most teens, the significance is lost. The finality doesn’t sink in. They don’t realize that the people they know and care about now will mostly fade from their lives as they move into the bigger world. For Kyle, his friends have been his lifeline and cancer, in a strange way, has given him a gift. It has been said that you have to wait for death to find out what people thought of you in life, and by that point you’re unlikely to care. Though you wouldn’t wish Kyle’s last 16 months upon your worst enemy, it has made him far more appreciative of the people around him. Support from his family — mom Flora, dad Chad and brother David was always going to be there. The gift was finding out who else was in his corner. Because of

awful, dreadful, despicable cancer, Kyle knows he’s not just liked, but loved. Hundreds of people were willing to have his back when things went wrong and the proof exists in a notebook that his parents gave him in the hospital — signed by everyone who came to visit him. There are a lot of names in that thing. “I found it the other day and I read through it and I was like, ‘Wow,’” Kyle said. “All my friends, their parents, the teachers, they’ve been great. It’s been nuts and I don’t even know how to explain it.” On the last school day of November 2010, a group of students took it upon themselves to shave their heads. Girls who take their hair seriously (extreme understatement) let it fall to the floor in support of their friend. Classmates wore t-shirts emblazoned with Kyle’s personal slogan, ‘Too Legit to Quit, and somewhere along the way they started calling

him Legit Lorteau. When all of this started, Kyle strongly considered taking a year off, coming back in 2012 to finish high school. Time proved he made the right call. “All the people in our grad class, we all know everyone through one person or another and we’re a close knit group,” he explained. “It’s not like, ‘Oh that kid. I don’t want to hang out with him.’ So going through Grade 10, 11 and not finishing off didn’t seem right. And starting with a new group, I couldn’t even think of it.” For all those reasons and more, graduation day was everything Kyle dreamed it would be. No one got more cheers than he did as he received his high school diploma. And no one got more hugs afterwards. “Everyone blew up when I got up to the stage,” he said. “It was un-freakin-believable.” Continued: WHAT /p34

What cancer leaves behind LIGHT from p33 One person in the crowd was louder than any other. Flora. As the throng at the First Avenue Christian Assembly exploded, Kyle could see his mom leading the cheers. He was happy to see her happy. Chad was quiet. But as Kyle looked at him he could see pride. For 16 months, no two people had meant more to Kyle than his mom and dad. They had shot-

gun seats on the cancer roller coaster, experiencing vicariously every twist, turn and dizzying drop. The experience led Chad to cardiac arrest and rendered Flora an insomnia and worry riddled mess. But, the experience also brought the Lorteaus closer than they’d ever been before. “At 16 or 17 years old, you usually lose all communication with your kids, and this has made sure that door can’t close,” Flora said with a

weary smile. “I have no problem telling my kids that I love them and I don’t care anymore if they get embarrassed. And now, Kyle will say that to me as well.” If it is true that adversity builds character, then Kyle is set for life. He’ll never be able to put this behind him, no matter how hard he tries. Cancer leaves scars that never heal. But for every test Kyle will dread over the course of his lifetime, he will be able to reach

back and remember this. As horrible as cancer was, he’s a better man because of it. “I’ve turned into a nicer person, and I’m more optimistic than I’ve ever been,” Kyle said. “I got dealt one of the worst hands you can get and I turned it into something that made me a better person.” “And I’m still untouchable.” This is the final installment in a four part series.

Sports

Collision course at speedway Plenty of car bashing on and off the track marked another exciting weekend at the Agassiz Speedway. Local driver Robert Adams did his thing in the hornet class, winning one of the heats. He provides an update in this week’s Progress sports section. For a small donation last Saturday night, fans were invited to grab a sledgehammer and take a shot at a Pink Dodge Neon. Kids from 6 to 60 took turns demolishing the car during intermission, with all funds raised donated to the cancer society.

The rest of the night was even more explosive, with tense races in five classes. In the street stocks, Kelly Moto held an early lead, but it was Murray Jones who held on through a cautionfilled race to grab the checkered flag. Paul and Keith Tourand finished twothree. In the focus midgets race Billy Bell, Troy Globe and Kris McKenzie staged a three-car battle for first. Bell held the point with Globe pressuring on every turn, in turn pressured by McKenzie. With two laps to go

Bell drifted too high, opening the door for Globe to pass and pick up his third win of the year. This was also the debut of young rookie Brayden Planko, who drove the No. 00 car and made continuous improvements all night. In the hornet class, Chilliwack’s Robert Adams held a late lead, only to see Curtis Williams pull of a beautiful inside pass with two laps to go. Williams finished first followed by Adams and Dean Bridge. The mini-stocks headlined the evening with Wayne Goodwins

SAVE BIG!

taking the B heat and Aaron Willison the A heat. An early yellow flag slowed down the start of the main race, but when the cars started flying it was Willison who held the lead from lap 11 to the end, edging Norm Hillert (second) and Marius Dunford (third). The night’s final race was the season debut of the hit-2-pass class, highlighted by a massive six-car pileup in turns three and four. The next racing night is July 9.

✞ Obituaries DYCK Abraham “Abe” Jacob

April 21, 1944 - June 4, 2011 With heartfelt love and deep sorrow, we announce the passing of our beloved DYCK father, grandfather, brother, 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 Chilli-

wack, 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. Donations to the Salvation Army Food Bank would be a gracious gift to Dad’s memory. “To live on in the hearts of others is not to die.” Dad, you are loved and missed beyond measure. Online condolences can be made at www.abedyck.memory-of.com
