Sanborn handed conditional discharge Robert Freeman The Progress Former city employee Grant Sanborn received a conditional sentence Thursday for using a forged document to make a client in his private consulting business believe he had made an application to the Agricultural Land Commission for a homesite severance as promised. Provincial court Judge Roy Couper Dickey said he found no public benefit in a harsher sentence, and no benefit to Sanborn in terms of deterrence or rehabilitation. “(It is) not necessary to enter a conviction to deter him or rehabilitate him,” Dickey said. Sanborn, 52, has no criminal record. The conditional discharge means he will have no criminal record, if he meets probation terms and other conditions. The judge said the forgery was “dramatically out of character” for Sanborn, who had also served as chairman of the Cultus Lake Park Board, and volunteered his time with community organizations like the Rotary Club, Tourism Chilliwack, Community Futures and the YMCA. Dickey also noted that Sanborn did not profit from the forgery, whose only purpose was to “placate” a client, and give him additional time to make the application as promised. “His only benefit was to retain the client,” Dickey said. However, Dickey said he took issue with defence counsel’s characterization of the forgery as a relatively minor infraction that would normally go before a professional body for disciplinary action.

Police surround a home on Unsworth Road after reports of gunshots Wednesday. RCMP located a large grow-op inside. GREG KNILL/ PROGRESS

Seven suspects flushed from drug house Robert Freeman The Progress Chilliwack RCMP officers descended in force on an Unsworth home late Wednesday after a passerby’s report of gunshots and suspicious activity, flushing seven men from the residence, all of whom were swiftly captured. Four of the men arrested are Mexican citizens, and because of their current status in Canada, they will be released to immigration officials. Two of the seven are known to police, and it was expected that three would be released Thursday. Police said a large marijuana grow-op was found inside the residence, plus more than 40 lbs of

clipped marijuana bud with an estimated street value of $90,000. About 600 marijuana plants were also discovered with an estimated value of $150,000. A loaded prohibited handgun was also found in the residence. “The residence itself contained reinforced doors, steel bars in the windows and very hazardous wiring throughout,” RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said. The basement floor was covered in two inches of water, with wiring and electrical outlets sitting in the water, she said. The dozen police officers who responded to the call – which included members of an Emergency Response Team, Police Dog Services and the Fraser Valley

Traffic Services – were initially stopped by a heavily fortified gate at the 6868 Unsworth Road property. Hollingsworth said after receiving the report, police set up a perimeter on the roads surrounding the property. “We just kind of waited until we were all ready to go, and then we noticed the men running out the back of the house,” she said. A footchase through the surrounding fields began, but all seven suspects were soon in custody. Staff Sgt. Marty Blais, head of the RCMP’s crime reduction unit in the Fraser Valley, said the officers “did an excellent job containing the area and protecting the public.”

The home was long-suspected as a “drug” house by some area residents. RCMP Const. Bryan Martell, a member of the Chilliwack RCMP general investigative support team, said marijuana grow-operations “pose a significant risk to those who occupy them, and to the community around them.” “Violence and weapons go handin-hand with the illegal drug trade, and the Chilliwack RCMP asks for (the community’s) continued support in combating this pervasive issue,” he said. The city has now slapped a ‘No-Occupancy Order’ on the house under its anti-grow-op bylaw, and the electrical power supply has been shut off.

Fundraising rolled out for rolling shelving Jennifer Feinberg

ing shelving that has a coating to protect the valuable artifacts, they’ll also need conservation supplies, a new digital microfilm reader, furnishings for the new research room and more. “It’s an ambitious goal,” said

The Progress It’s the first time the extensive collection of Chilliwack-related artifacts, maps and other community records will be housed under one roof. Chilliwack Museum and Archives officials couldn’t be more thrilled about the new archives addition, built by the city onto the existing building on Corbould Street, measuring 4,000 square feet. They’ve been chipping away at a $250,000 fundraising goal needed to pay for museum-quality rolling shelving and accoutrements for the spacious new addition. “We’re been quietly raising funds for the shelving through the spring months,” said museum director Ron Denman. “It’s been fairly successful.” The funding injection from the Canada Cultural Spaces Fund announced Thursday will bring them much closer to the goal. But it hasn’t been easy. “Raising money for museum shelving — now that’s a toughie,” Denman said. “It’s not very exciting or sexy, but for us it was an absolute necessity.” Aside from the high-density roll-

Denman “but it’s a goal that we can reach.” Up until now they’ve used a “rag tag collection” of shelving assembled over the years. But some of it is not earthquake-proof for example.

Gun threat leads to arrest Robert Freeman The Progress A 39-year-old man and his father are in custody after a report of threats made to shoot someone in Yarrow early Thursday morning. Police said witnesses told them the 39-year-old came to the Esso gas station on Yarrow Central Road shortly before 8 a.m. and told employees that “people were after him and that he was going to shoot someone.” “He appeared to be intoxicated, but the clerk noticed what they thought to be a shotgun sitting on top of the 1990 Honda Accord that he was driving,” RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth

said. “The suspect also showed the employees some shotgun shells he had in his pocket,” she said. Chilliwack RCMP officers, an Emergency Response Team, Fraser Valley Traffic Services and Air One responded to the report. Hollingsworth said the 39-year-old man and his father were arrested and taken to the RCMP detachment in Chilliwack for further questioning. She said one of the men is known to police. “The police are currently investigating threats and weapons offences,” she said, and the firearm and Honda Accord have been seized. rfreeman@theprogress.com

Young boy on bike hit while riding to school An eight-year-old boy riding his bike to school Thursday morning was hit by a vehicle on Yale Road East. Police said the boy was “conscious and aware of his surroundings” when paramedics arrived on the scene

between Gibson Road and Upper Prairie Road shortly after 8 p.m. “The driver of the vehicle that struck the boy remained at the scene and is fully cooperating with police,” RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said.

Now they’re just $45,000 away from the fundraising target, in the wake of a substantial federal grant of $102,600. Chilliwack Foundation came through with $8,000 for the project, along with another $40,000

The boy was taken to Chilliwack General Hospital for further assessment, she said. The cause of the collision has not yet been determined, and a police investigation continues.

Rising fuel prices mean more pain at the pump Andrea Rendall The Progress Gas prices jumped up four cents Wednesday to 1.33.9 cents a litre at most pumps. Some gas stations managed to keep their price at a lower 1.29 cents per litre, but motorists are still feeling the dent in their wallets, and local delivery businesses are experiencing the hurt too. Western Cartage Ltd. is a local courier business that delivers food or manufacturing supplies in family-sized mini vans to construction supplies in tractor trailers. The business has been running since 1941, and current owner Paul Korbeld says that his business has felt the impact of rising gas prices. Korbeld’s business has a minimum charge of $26 for a delivery, and that price focuses heavily on just covering taxes and gas. He estimates that he has had to increase his minimum rate by about five per cent in the last two months, “and we’re probably due for another

raised by members and local businesses. A condition of the federal grant is a matching contribution from the museum and that the contribution specifically be used to purchase and install museum-quality shelving. “I am happy to say that we are now able to contribute our half to the shelving project,” said Denman. But, he added, the museum needs to continue fundraising to pay for other costs associated with the recently completed addition. Housed in the new facility will be more than 10,000 objects, a photograph collection that includes upwards of 100,000 images, and an archives collection featuring maps, municipal records, club records for volunteer groups, oral histories, aboriginal histories, and personal records from local residents. “We do have an incredible collection,” said Denman. “It’s a really significant resource for the community and we want to be able to expertly care for the collection and ensure its proper care into the future.” An open house is being planned for the fall to give the public a “behind-the-scenes” look at the archives.

one, if it continues like this,” he adds. When using one of his delivery vans strictly throughout the Lower Mainland, Korbeld says that the tank must be filled roughly once a day, and that the cost for each fill up is $80, “But probably closer to $100 now,” he says. “I think it’s kind of going on throughout the industry...

trucking companies don’t really have a choice but to raise the rates.” “At some point certain industries will be affected, they just won’t be able to sell their product if the shipping starts to outweigh that.” Korbeld anticipates that the minimum charge rate will continue to raise if gas prices don’t come down soon.

Rising fuel prices could push up the cost of deliveries.

Minister wants answers Fraser River’s iconic oily on proposed ICBC rates Tom Fletcher and Jeff Nagel Black Press VICTORIA – Should a single speeding ticket cause an increase in your car insurance rate on top of the cost of the ticket? Public Safety Minister Shirley Bond says she’s looking forward to a “spirited discussion” with officials of the Insurance Corp. of B.C. before it proceeds with its application to adjust rates. ICBC confirmed this week that its application to change rates could result in a rate increase for three years after a single speeding ticket, and further rate reductions for drivers who maintain a clean driving record. If approved by the B.C. Utilities Commission, the changes would take effect in 2014, but infractions in the next three years would affect future rates. Bond said Tuesday she questions whether the bar is being set too low. “My concern with ICBC is there is a test of reasonableness,” Bond said. “And I’m simply suggesting that we need to have a discussion about the threshold that would be put in place for being deemed a bad driver and paying additional penalties as a result of a single speeding ticket.” ICBC officials say 30 per cent of all drivers – the ones with some traffic tickets within the last three

years – will pay more and roughly two-thirds of drivers who have clean driving records and no at-fault crashes will enjoy an increased safe driving discount, over and above the premium discounts they now get for years of claim-free driving. Spokesman Mark Jan Vrem said ICBC has not yet determined how much it will reward good drivers and punish the bad. One report of an average 10 per cent saving for drivers with a clean record is inaccurate, he said. The changes would take effect in 2014 and look back over the previous three years, so ICBC is warning drivers to shape up now if they don’t want to pay more later. Even so, the full shift won’t kick in immediately. “There won’t be sticker shock in 2014,” Jan Vrem said. “It’s going to be phased in.” And he said a single ticket may not make much difference. “If you have only one minor violation in the three-year scan, your rate could stay the same or go up very slightly,” he said. Details are expected when ICBC files an application this summer to the B.C. Utilities Commission. Existing driver penalty premiums that charge extra for the two per cent of motorists with convictions for excessive speeding or impaired driving will remain in effect, he said.

‘candlefish’ nears extinction Jeff Nagel Black Press

The Fraser River eulachon, an oily smelt-like fish prized by First Nations, has been designated an endangered species after a 98 per cent decline in its numbers over the past decade. The listing was made by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC), which warns the outlook is “grim” for the small iconic fish that may be nearing extinction. Eulachon, also spelled oolichan, is dubbed saviour fish by some aboriginals who counted on it to bridge over gaps in the salmon catch, and candlefish by others, because they’re so oily they can be dried and burned like candles. Some B.C. First Nations rendered eulachon down into a grease that was carried vast distances along historic “grease trails – pre-contact trade routes that connected coastal and inland villages. “There used to be millions of them,” Sto:lo fishery advisor Ernie Crey said. “But they’re just not there any more.” COSEWIC cites a mix of potential culprits for the precipitous drop in eulachon stocks, including changing environmental conditions affecting marine survival, predators and fishing. Crey points to boats in the

offshore shrimp trawl fishery, which pull up eulachon as a bycatch along with their shrimp. “They just jettison them overboard as waste,” he said. “There’s no market for them so there’s no interest in them.” He also suspects eulachon have been hurt by habitat damage along the lower Fraser from industrial activity. Log booms on the lower river grind up bark and deposit it on the river bottom, covering spawning habitat, he said. Channel dredging, boat traffic, municipal sewage and chemical contaminants from farmland may also be factors, he said. COSEWIC’s decision will go to the federal environment minister, who will consider whether to also designate eulachon under Canada’s Species at Risk Act (SARA). Crey said a listing under SARA would force the Department of Fisheries and Oceans to take a hard look at fisheries that threaten eulachon, as well as sources of habitat damage, and poten-

tially force corrective action. Eulachon populations on the central coast are now also rated endangered by COSEWIC, although ones further north in the Skeena and Nass Rivers are only considered “threatened.” Also now listed endangered is the olive clubtail, a very rare stream-dwelling dragonfly with striking blue eyes that’s found at only a handful of sites in B.C. and has been hurt by habitat loss and activity like beach recreation. One bright spot in the committee’s findings was that the humpback whale, considered threatened since 1985, has made a steady comeback and is now being downgraded to a “special concern” – a lower risk category. An estimated 18,000 humpbacks now live in the North Pacific and the population is growing by around six per cent a year. Humpbacks had been hunted to the edge of extinction but rebounded after whaling ended in 1967.

Not all progressive lenses are created equal... PLATINUM

Pastor Shawn Vandop stands in the new Promontory Church building on Main Street. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

New church almost ready to open downtown Jennifer Feinberg The Progress The Main Street Campus of Promontory Church has been completely renovated inside the old Liquidation World building. “We’re getting ready to open in just a few weeks,” said Pastor Shawn Vandop of Promontory Church. It’s one church with two locations now, with the original site located in the Promontory Community school, and the new one being built on Main Street. “People are dropping by every day to ask what’s going on,” the pastor said. “The whole congregation is looking forward to this.” It won’t be what people expect, he said. “We don’t want it to be the typical church, either in looks or experience,” he said. “We want to create something that allows people to feel comfortable in church.” Space issues forced them look for

a new satellite location on the valley floor. “We do three Sunday morning services at the school now,” said Vandop. “So we began to look around downtown and see what was there.” They prayed about the question as a congregation and began to imagine the church taking on a active role in the city’s downtown revitalization plan. “We thought maybe we could help rejuvenate the core,” he said. Church officials purchased the Liquidation World building and are using the front section that measures about 10000 square feet for church programs, with the retail outlet in the back section. They also secured an adjacent building next door with another 5000 square feet for kids’ programs. The grand opening is set for June. “Everyone is pretty amped about it,” Vandop said. “We have a heart for Promontory still, but there are people who drive up the hill, and we want to reach new people as well.”

The five-acre site purchased by CBA on Olds Drive in 2008 for $6.5 million to expand the bingo operation into a CGC, was included in the sale of assets and CBA operation, announced May 12. The acquisition of the bingo operation is still subject to receipt of the regulatory approvals and other details of closing.

Large marijuana ‘stash’ found in Chilliwack home A 65-year-old Chilliwack man was arrested Monday after police said they found $45,000 worth of marijuana in a home on Alameda Drive on Chilliwack Mountain. Police believe the two-yearold home was being used “exclusively for the purpose of

marijuana trafficking” rather than a grow-op. In addition to the $45,000 worth of dried, clipped and packaged marijuana, police also found a “large quantity of cash” and unpackaged marijuana plants and bud. Police had obtained a search

warrant after area residents had called to report a “very strong smell of marijuana” coming from the home. “Drug trafficking is a highrisk business that often brings violence and other negative influences to the communities it infects,” Const. Tracy Wolbeck

Living with the wild With the arrival of spring, it’s not just people who are emerging from their warm, dry homes. Wildlife are also venturing to the great outdoors, to forage for food, to stake out territories, to provide for their young. But the needs and habits of those creatures are often at odds with our city ways. And animals are only too keen to exploit our inattention and laziness to make their lives easier. Bears, raccoons and skunks looking for a tasty snack wander into back alleys, backyards and open garages to raid unsecured garbage cans. Coyotes aren’t afraid to prowl suburban streets for roaming cats or small defenceless dogs—who hasn’t seen a poster looking for help locating a missing beloved pet stapled to a telephone poll, usually not far from a park or wild ravine? One of the great attractions of living in Chilliwack is our close proximity to wilderness. With that comes a responsibility to understand and respect the animals that make their homes in the forests, parks, mountainsides and conservation areas that are the green backdrop to our concrete world. A bear that develops a taste for kitchen scraps tossed in an unsecured curbside can is doomed; it’ll only enjoy so many snacks before conservation officers are brought in to dispatch the bothersome bruin to a new home, or worse. A skunk or raccoon with an affinity for half-empty boxes of cereal and discarded jam jars becomes a pest with a nasty disposition if challenged. A coyote with a hungry eye on Whiskers is someone’s heartbreak. Wild animals don’t seek confrontations with humans; in fact, they go out of their way to avoid us as much as possible. Our coexistence has relied on just such a strategy of mutual avoidance for thousands of years. But the reality is they were here long before we built streets and houses and grocery stores. So the responsibility to maintain the balance of our relationship with wildlife is on our shoulders. Black Press

Populist HST ‘fix’ coming from Victoria soon VICTORIA – Premier Christy Clark’s shifting position on the harmonized sales tax finally appears to have come to rest. Her government is preparing to “fix the HST,” and the terms of that fix will be made available before people mark their ballots in a mail-in vote in June, Clark told reporters at the legislature last week. There has been a flurr y of activity on the HST in recent days, and a few things are becoming clear. Clark and Finance Minister Kevin Falcon are preparing to do what I’ve been saying for months the government must do – make a solemn vow to cut the HST rate to 11 per cent as soon as they can. And in keeping with Clark’s fondness for populist, headlinehunting gestures, the government will also likely rebate the

HST on bicycles and bicycle helmets, and possibly fitness club memberships as well. A couple of other “family-first” exemptions may also be gleaned from the town halls, online surveys and polling that are currently going on. A well-known polling firm was in Tom the field last week, FLETCHER asking not only about people’s impressions of their new premier and opposition leader, but also their view towards a reduction in the HST rate. Win or lose the mail-in referendum on the tax in June or July, the B.C. Liberals are getting ready for a fall general election. Falcon estimates that cutting

one point from the HST would cost the provincial treasury $850 million. Given that revenue from the HST is running well ahead of the finance ministry’s estimates, that figure could be low. The government’s independent panel issued its report last week, and it confirms that the HST is bringing in more revenue than expected. Going back to the PST would not only trigger huge costs of paying back federal transition funds and reconstructing a provincial sales tax office, it would cost the B.C. government more than $500 million in net revenue in the first year, and more after that. Here’s one reason why HST revenue is higher than originally projected. Contrary to the apocalyptic predictions of some in the restaurant industry, the panel compiled Statistics Canada

figures and found that B.C. restaurant sales rose by three per cent in the first seven months of the HST. That’s exactly the same increase as the rest of the country, despite the supposedly crushing effect of the tax and B.C.’s new impaired driving regulations. Jobs, Tourism and Innovation Minister Pat Bell has pitched in as a host for the telephone town hall program that continued this week. These giant conference calls were to be staged Tuesday evening in the Okanagan, Fraser Valley and northern and central Vancouver Island. The program wraps up Thursday evening with calls to Richmond, South Delta, the North Shore, Victoria and Vancouver. Bell said his call for the Interior and North Coast had more than 30,000 people on the line.

Some were still upset about the HST, while others had misconceptions about what costs it does and doesn’t increase, he said. And lifting the tax from bicycles was a popular choice. I continue to get e-mails from people who are misinformed about the HST. One reader said he is paying it on heating oil. I suggested he check his bill again, and there it was, a rebate for the seven-per-cent provincial portion. The GST applied before and it continues to apply now. These telephone town halls have gone a long way towards putting the discussion on a factual basis. Voters may yet be persuaded to keep the HST.

Landowner Compensation for Vegetated Buffers The Whatcom County Experience

Yale Treaty promotes conflict To successfully negotiate treaties in British Columbia, all parties understood that the interests of third-parties were not going to be “on the table.” Given the clearly documented historical and ongoing use of the Fraser Canyon by the Sto:lo, it is now clear that this principle is only being applied to non-aboriginal thirdparty interests. There is no other example of the B.C. or Canadian government in the B.C. Treaty Process so fundamentally disregarding the legitimate rights, title and interests of First Nations people. The parties that established the B.C. Treaty Process clearly understood that shared territory disputes needed to be resolved prior to treaties being finalized. Yale First Nation’s treaty negotiations proceeded without addressing this requirement. As a result, Yale’s final agreement excludes the Sto:lo from resources and access that are critically important to our communities. Now the rights, title and interests of thousands of Sto:lo are being bulldozed in the Yale Treaty by a total of only 66 (of 99) band members who voted in support of the final agreement. A decision based on this foundation is neither justifiable nor honourable. It would disgrace the Crown, whose honour is at stake. It would fly in the face of Canada’s core democratic principles. B.C. and Canada have “washed

their hands” of responsibility and claimed it is up to First Nations to resolve “their overlap dispute.” Rather than realize that the approach taken was the wrong one, these parties have now taken a stance that they are disinterested parties and that the First Nations should sort this out themselves. Unfortunately, Yale First Nation has indicated it does not intend to sort this out prior to its treaty coming into effect. The Sto:lo raised this issue in their treaty negotiations with B.C. and Canada and were advised that government will not intervene in another treaty table as this would not be “fair” to the Yale First Nation. Citizens should also ask themselves whether the approach being taken by the government negotiators is going to succeed in providing better social and economic certainty. The Sto:lo are increasingly concerned that B.C. is pushing ahead with its new mantra, “a treaty at any cost,” and has lost sight of the underlying issues that must be resolved for the B.C. Treaty Process to succeed. The Sto:lo are concerned that if the proposed treaty proceeds without addressing this fundamental flaw, we will all be afflicted by continued uncertainty and unnecessary conflict. The citizens of the Fraser Valley deserve better.

Bus route to Eagle Landing needed Open letter to the City of Chilliwack – Bus route to Eagle Landing Center: In my opinion, there are no excuses not to create a new bus route to give many people the opportunity to shop at the new Eagle Landing shopping centre. If you look at the map of bus routes available in Chilliwack, you will realize that there are two routes that follow the same itinerary from Downtown to Cottonwood Mall. These buses are numbers 5 and 6. In my opinion it will be very easy to change the No. 5 route. The new route would start from the Downtown exchange, then would continue on: Kipp Ave, Mary St, Wellington St, (west direction) – Bus stop at Wellington and Corbould, and Wellington and

Ashwell – Ashwell Rd - Bus Stop at Ashwell and Kipp, Ashwell and Hodgins, Ashwell and Bernard, Ashwell & Deans Ave - Eagle Landing Parkway - Bus stop at Home Depot (along the road), between Walmart and Cineplex (Parking lot) and Stream - Evans Rd - Bus stop at Evans and Knight Rd - Knight Rd - Bus stop at Knight and Garnet Dr, Knight Rd and Topaz Dr - Topaz Drive, Chilliwack Mall, Cottonwood Mall (terminus). As you see, this simple solution will be inexpensive for the City of Chilliwack. I sincerely hope you will consider this solution and take action to create a new bus route 5.

On April 26, Robert Freeman published an article entitled “Yale treaty seen as good economic news for Fraser Canyon.” The article cited Dennis Anderson, Yale area director at the Fraser Valley Regional District and a member of the Yale Treaty Advisory Committee as saying that “the Yale Agreement would benefit everyone in the Fraser Canyon area.” Dennis Anderson is profoundly mistaken. Rather than providing greater economic certainty and social stability, the proposed treaty will result in continued and unnecessary conflict. For thousands of years the Sto:lo have shared the resources of the Lower Fraser Canyon. If the draft treaty with the Yale First Nation is ratified by government it will unilaterally take away rights and title for all Sto:lo. The proposed treaty would result in the Sto:lo people losing historical access to important ancient fishing and cultural sites. The draft treaty would result in the Yale First Nation becoming the gatekeeper controlling access to the Fraser River Canyon, a role that previously was denied to them by the courts. The Yale Treaty would result in the outright loss of Sto:lo lands and resources fundamental to our culture. The B.C. Treaty Process was intended to be the means of resolving outstanding rights and title issues in British Columbia. Two key principles were incorporated to accomplish that goal.

Good people I just want to thank Constable Boivin and my accident witness, Dustin Hall, for their kind assistance on Sunday. I hadn’t planned on spending Mother’s Day involved in a vehicle collision, but their help made it more tolerable. It’s a pleasure to acknowledge community people doing good.

“The action of Mr. Sanborn was illegal and an offence under the criminal code of Canada,� Dickey said. Sanborn’s potential loss of income and his “tarnished� reputation as a result of the charge should satisfy the public demand for justice, the judge said. Sanborn was also sentenced to one year on probation, 30 hours of community service work and a court order to write a letter of apology to the client. Crown counsel had asked for a fine and suspended sentence in light of Sanborn’s business specialty is properties within the Agricultural Land Reserve. Sanborn was hired by the client in September, 2006 to make an application to the Agricultural Land Commission for a homesite severance. Over the next year the client made repeated requests for an update on the application, and on February 20 Sanborn produced a letter purportedly on ALC letterhead to indicate that he had made the application. However, no such letter was issued by the ALC. Sanborn’s defence counsel explained the forgery a result of “overwork� at the busy consulting business, and the “significant� hours he was spending on park board matters. Dickey said that was “an explanation, but not a defence.� “The use of this forged document was a criminal offence,� he said.

Vermont: Recalling the adventures FLYERS IIN N TODAY’S TOD TO DA AY’ AY Y’S PAPER PAP PA PE ER of the bandit Captain Thunderbolt • IGA • Husqvarna • Future Shop • Cooper’s Foods • Save-on-Foods • The Source • Michael’s • Canadian Tire • Zellers • Home Hardware

Mitchell Smyth Meridian Writers’ Group BROOKLINE, VERMONT— The one-room, red-brick building is circular in shape. It’s called the Round Schoolhouse and there are five windows, equally spaced apart. From where I stood in the middle of the room I could see the road, the fields and the woods: a 360-degree perspective. It was much the same view as Dr. John Wilson would have had in the 1820s, when he was the schoolteacher here. The school was built to Wilson’s specifications because, he said, he wanted to keep a lookout in all directions for the infamous “Captain Thunderbolt,” the highwayman whose exploits had turned this area into a valley of fear. The pupils didn’t know it, but the bandit was closer than they thought. When Wilson died, the undertaker took off the high cravat that he always wore around his neck. Beneath it were the scars of chains such as a convict would carry. “Yes, Dr. John Wilson was Captain Thunderbolt,” says Cynthia Nau, the co-chair of the Brookline Historical Association. She believes he designed the building in a circle so that lawmen couldn’t take him by surprise. The society runs the Round Schoolhouse as a museum. It’s furnished as it would have looked in the 19th century, and artifacts and photographs record the history of Brookline and the school. According to most sources, Wilson came from Ayrshire, Scotland. In his youth he took up with a bandit called Michael Martin, from Kilkenny, Ireland, and together, as “Captain Thunderbolt” and “Lightfoot”

HORSE WHISPERER GRIEF CAMP

they terrorized the ScotsEnglish border. At one point, Thunderbolt was jailed for a time, in neck shackles. (The names of the highwaymen may be familiar to movie-goers from the 1974 release Thunderbolt and Lightfoot, starring Clint Eastwood and Jeff Bridges, but the film bore no resemblance to the Vermont story.) When things got too hot in Scotland, they pair left, first—say some accounts— for Ireland and then for America, where they apparently split up. Lightfoot was captured and hanged in Massachusetts in 1821. But the law never caught up with Thunderbolt.

Wilson, who was well educated, at various times passed himself off as a teacher, a lawyer and a doctor. After he left Brookline he started a medical practice in nearby Newfane. Some of his medical vials from that time are in Newfane’s Windham County Museum. Also in the exhibit are a daguerreotype (an early photographic method, using a metal plate) of Wilson, his cane, brass pistols and a cork false heel that he wore in his boot. Nau explains: “When they undressed him after death they found that part of his heel had been shot away and there was a bullet wound in his calf.”

Wilson died in Brattleboro, Vermont, in 1847.He had insisted that he should not be undressed after death, but the undertaker did not know this so his secret came out. The Round Schoolhouse— the only one in America— remained a school until 1928. After that, it had various uses, then lay vacant for a long time before being donated to the town of Brookline, which restored it.

Earlier this month, annual Mental Health Awareness week strove to increase our understanding of the widespread impact of mental health concerns in our country. One in five Canadians will personally experience a mental health disorder over the course of his or her lifetime. Over the next few weeks, the Perspectives column will focus on mental health and wellbeing in our community, spiritually and in the workplace. Given the Marie years AMOS of one’s lifetime spent at a place of employment, a mentally healthy workplace can have a major impact (whether positively or negatively) on individuals. The Canadian Institute for Health Information published a Mentally Healthy Communities: A Collection of Papers that addresses multiple areas that impact mental health. Approximately 20-30% of claims for disability in Canada are related to mental health impairment, and additionally often underlies physical complaints. An article written by Dr. Mark

Lau and Melody Munro, two researchers at UBC, outlines the factors involved in mental health and the workplace. Addressing mental health wellness in the workplace needs a two-pronged approach- improving the workplace environment, as well as building individual resiliency. Lau and Munro suggest that a workplace that has well clarified roles, a reasonable workload, and positive relationships between workers is a healthier place. Training managers to recognize and provide support to employees who are struggling is also an important piece. Strategies to increase individual resiliency include training employees in relaxation and stress reduction. Also, important are healthy habits around nutrition and exercise for individuals to maintain mental health. Unfortunately, all employers are not created equally. In one of my high school jobs a coworker missed several shifts due to the death of a close friend and our manager groused about it to the rest of the staff. This did not contribute to a work environment supportive of mental health and wellbeing since a key component to encouraging mental wellness in the workplace is employer supportiveness. For

example, if an employee has been off work due to depression or anxiety ensuring that employees are given opportunities to come back to work gradually can have a huge impact on their continued mental health. There are resources out there for readers who are interested in learning more about promoting mental health in their workplace. The Canadian Mental Health Association (www. cmha.ca) has an online Work/Life balance quiz and suggestions and resources for helping improve a health and sustainable balance. The Here to Help website (www. heretohelp.bc.ca) has a great collection of fact sheets, tool kits, and other resources to address a wide variety of mental health and addiction concerns. On May 18th there is a free public forum at the UFV theatre put on by the Chilliwack Social Research and Planning Council. The panelists, consisting of mental health professionals, represent the areas of health, addictions, Aboriginal, children, and social development. This is an opportunity to learn how individuals within our community can contribute to a more mentally healthy community. Marie Amos, MA, RCC, is a Mental Health Therapist with Child and Youth Mental Health of MCFD, Chilliwack.

of roses, called ‘Easy Elegance’®, that have great hardiness, attractive flower forms, compact size, recurrent blooming habits and yes, great disease resistance. My top pick of this series is ‘All the Rage’ because of its glossy foliage and ever changing flower colours. Coral buds explode into 3-4 inch apricot semi-double open flowers with yellow centers, and finally mature to vibrant lipstick pink. Growing only 2½-4 feet tall and hardy to zone 4, this shrub rose has a very clean appearance, a rounded form, and great disease resistance. Classified as an everbloomer, it has colour all summer long. ‘Super Hero’ is not overstating this ‘Easy Elegance’® rose which evolved from ‘Rose Hero’. It’s a good everblooming red with clusters of 2-3 inch hybrid tea shaped blooms that just keep coming all summer long. It grows anywhere from 3-5 feet tall, and its red colour contrasts nicely with its medium to dark satiny foliage which is very disease resistant. Classified as a floribunda, its petal count is an amazing 35-40, which is pretty impressive. ‘Sweet Fragrance’ is a grandiflora with 3-4 inch apricot flowers that just keep coming all summer long. It only grows 2-4 feet tall with its full blooms held high on sturdy stems. It matures to an attractive salmon pink. Initially rated as a zone 5, it is now on trial in zone 4, but with mulching, it should be fine. It’s hard to imagine that there’s one member of this series that outblooms the others but there is one that never quits because it has sterile flowers that produce no hips, therefore it doesn’t know how to quit blooming. ‘Mystic Fairy’, with its continuous, massive clusters of 3 inch red blooms with pink undertones, is a variety that does great all summer in containers on sunny decks. It’s very

disease resistant with rich dark green foliage. It’s a keeper! I’m also very intrigued with a new series of landscape and shrub roses from the famous Kordes family, who have been growing roses in Germany for four generations. The ‘Vigorosa’ series is a new breed of roses that is very disease resistant and continuous flowering. It’s winning awards across Europe. On the whole they are very compact, vigorous - as the name would imply – and provide new opportunities for easy care roses in the landscape. ‘Ruby Vigorosa’ is a brilliant crimson red semi-double that flowers in large clusters; is slightly perfumed; has very glossy dark green foliage; is compact in nature (growing only 2x2 ft.); and blooms all summer. It has sparked a great deal of interest, winning ten international medals, including six gold. ‘Apricot Vigorosa’ changes colour from a rich apricot yellow to a beautiful apricot pink when its medium sized double blooms open. It too is low growing (about 2½ x 2½ ft.), and of course blooms all summer long with a pleasant sour-fruity scent. Its rich green

glossy foliage is another attractive feature, which is why it’s won six international medals, including gold. As the name would suggest, ‘Inocencia Vigorosa’ is a pure white, softly perfumed double that blooms in clusters of 10-15 flowers, and it has dense, very dark green glossy foliage. It’s a littler shorter, growing only 1½ -2 ft. tall and wide. It’s often the first to bloom and is quite stunning in mass plantings. ‘Salmon Vigorosa’ gives us a rich, hot pink colour in the garden with medium sized double flowers in sprays. It’s very compact, growing 20x20 inches. Its recurrent flowers have unique elongated buds with attractive

high centers, and it too has rich glossy foliage. This variety has won four international medals, including gold. ‘Siena Vigorosa’ has dark red buds that open into brilliant semidouble orange-pink blooms with a yellow base. Its flowers sport a light to medium perfume, and its foliage is more a glossy medium green. It’s compact, growing only 2–2½ ft. wide and tall. ‘Siena’ has won four gold medals in international trials. I’ve seen quite a shift in demand, moving away from the traditional modern rose varietie s to the more versatile shrub roses, and to ground cover and easy care, disease free, hardy, continuous blooming varieties.

oses are now bursting out with buds already showing and even some colour. However, I am absolutely amazed to hear of aphid problems already on roses and would highly recommend simply washing them off with a gentle flow of water. In terms of sprays, if you wish to stay organic, use Safer’s ‘Trounce’ every 10 days as a foliar mist. To keep mildew and black spot in check, pick off any infected foliage and every ten Brian days, alterMINTER nate an application of old fashioned garden sulphur with an application of a baking soda solution (8 grams per one litre of water) mixed with a teaspoon of Trounce to act as a spreadersticker so the spray adheres to the leaves. It works! There are also organic fungicides now available, like Safer’s ‘Defender’ (which is sulphur). In spite of roses being slightly acid loving, they love well-rotted manures. Fibrous manures, such as mushroom compost, are dandy and should be applied at least four to six inches deep around your roses. If you covered the bud unions of your roses in winter with bark, sawdust or soil, remove it now and work it into the soil along with the manures. Roses are heavy feeders. There are many organic and traditional rose foods on the market, but be sure they are rated low nitrogen, high phosphorus and high potash with micronutrients. Roses should be fertilized every two months. There are some interesting new roses out that are very disease resistant. Bailey’s Nursery has introduced a series

Chilliwack dancer heads to provincials Chilliwack dancer Kyera Fedoruk of Images Dance studio is off to the B.C. Performing Arts Provincial Festival in June. When B.C.’s most promising performing artists assemble in Kamloops June 5 to 9 for the prestigious festival, 12-year-old Fedoruk will be among them. At the closing of the Surrey Festival of Dance, the young dancer learned she had been chosen as the Junior rep to the fest. “Being chosen as a junior representative at so young an age is rare,” said Images dance studio owner/director Karr y Kozak. “The junior category includes approximately

300 dancers aged 10 to 12, competing to win the provincial representation.” The Surrey Festival draws 10,000 dancers from many of the top studios in B.C. and is one of the largest festivals in North America. “Kyera is a hard worker who constantly challenges herself and it doesn’t go unnoticed.” The fest is a five-day event that encompasses master classes, lectures, workshops, technique classes and adjudications in dance, music and drama. Images Dance Studio has had a wonderful showing in its first two competitions, Kozak said. With multiple overall

trophies, Alyssa Kish and Kyera Fedoruk Duo jazz, Lexi Barr Tap solo, overall medals, Pink Panther jazz trio Liam howlette, shayne Fedoruk, and Jessica Laynes, Twilight stage trio Emma ZennertChan, Sydney Penner, And Kyera Fedoruk. and overall scholarships, and bursaries awarded to Images Dance Studio’s talented dancers. Despicable me and Everywhere I Go has been honoured to be invited back to the No Borders group competition, winning a trophy and a $300 dollar scholarship between the two dances to compete on May 7. The dancers are Janessa Morelli, Alyssa

Kish, Kyera Fedoruk, Mackenzie Barr, Emma Zenert, Chan Kelsie Seguin, Gabrielle Poulin, Raven Kasa, Erin Froesse, Sydney Penner, Sydney Walton, Lexi Barr, Logan Walton, Sydney Helmer, Justice Penner, Olivia Nicol, Lauryn Morelli, Nicola Laurillard and Catherine Janzen. “I am so proud of all of our dancers,” said Kozak, who has been providing award winning dance instruction for the past 20 years to the community of Chilliwack. “To have such a strong showing in the festivals is a testament to the hard work of these amazing dancers and their teachers.”

Chilliwack dancer Kyera Fedoruk of Images Dance studio is off to the B.C. Performing Arts Provincial Festival in June.

from your at family team

When you speak with Kevin Prachnau, there are two things that you quickly realize; he’s both a natural-born businessman and an incredibly hard worker. Kevin is a Chilliwack boy through and through, having lived here his entire life. “I’ve never left. I love it here,” he said plainly. His parents were both hard workers, an ethic that they instilled in their three children from an early age. Kevin’s father worked in the automotive industry, dabbled in construction and owned his own dairy equipment business while his mother was involved in the banking industry for a number of years. “She eventually left the bank and went to work at the Chilliwack Health Unit and stayed there until she retired,” he said. The great outdoors have always played a huge part in Kevin’s life. “I was right into motorcycle riding and racing. I love fishing, camping, spending time at the cabin, hockey and baseball,” he enthused. Kevin quit high school in Grade 11 for personal reasons and began supporting himself by taking on a job as a parts man for the Honda dealership, where he worked for the next six years. While he loved that job, Kevin has always had the need to face new challenges, so he resolved to move on and began working for Visscher Lumber as a sawdust truck driver. “I did that for about a year and a half and then went into shipping

and receiving followed by a position as production coordinator. I ended up staying with them for seven years,” he said. Ever the entrepreneur, Kevin left and ventured out on his own, starting up an equipment Ana painting MACEDO business out of his 4,400-square-foot shop. He started off painting equipment and ended up refurbishing old vehicles too. “Six months after starting the business, I hired one guy and after four years I had four guys. When the business was slow, rather than lay off the guys, I renovated houses on the side,” he explained. At the same time

but at the beginning of March, they moved into their new location on Yale Road, next to Pioneer Buildall, before the overpass. The business sells ATVs, snowmobiles and carries a large selection of accessories. “We do sales along with the parts and service. We also have the Ranger RZR series, including the new XP 900,” he said proudly. There is no denying that Kevin has worked hard all of his life and eventually, he’d like to slow down a bit, to start enjoying some of what he loves. “I’ve worked hard since I was 17. I’d like to slow down by the time that I’m 55. I wouldn’t mind travelling a bit more and I’d also like to buy a motor home and just go. I love river fishing and I find the cabin so restful,” he said.

that he was running that business, he had the opportunity of buying into Heppner Trucking, an opportunity that he wholly embraced. I’ve owned it now for 16 years, the first 11 years I had a partner.” Given that Kevin has enjoyed the outdoors his entire life, a love that he shares with wife, Cheri and children, 12-year-old Logan and nine-yearold Hailey, he decided to purchase a business dealing in outdoor adventure. “I’ve always been involved in quadding and snowmobiling all of my life and this is something that we do as a family. I’m also a 10-year guy; after 10 years I need to face a new challenge,” he chuckled. So last July, he bought Westcoast Polaris, now known as Fivestar Motorsports.

Feinberg 604.702.5573 • jfeinberg@theprogress.com

Hardcore Tech N9ne to hit Chilliwack Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Tech N9ne is a hardcore rapper from Kansas City who knew he was going to make it early on. He just focused on developing his own style and tone, on his strong rhymes and rapid-fire delivery. Failing that he might have tried his hand at becoming a psychiatrist, he confides to The Progress. But with a million records sold, tons of collaborations, his music on TV, in video games and movies, he’s a force to be reckoned with in the underground hip hop world. Tech N9ne, who was born Aaron Yates, is the co-founder of the independent Strange Music label. The rapper and his guests are live in concert in Chilliwack on May 25 at Evergreen Hall as part of his Canuck the Industry Tour. He’ll be rolling up in his diesel tour buses to put on a massive stage show, with support from special guests, Krizz Kaliko, The Scale Breakers, Westcoast Familia and Dissikuss. Here’s how the Q&A interview went between the Progress and Tech N9ne while he was preparing to do a show earlier this week in Montreal. You’ve spent an enormous time touring and out on the road. How do you stay healthy on tour? We work out. Actually it’s the first time we’re going to be healthy. I have a personal trainer on tour with us this time. We’re eating baked chicken, apples and peanut butter. But my favourite is Italian food. You know what I sayin’? You’re known for your rapid-fire rhyming but what about the description of you as “bizarre hardcore,” what do you think of that one? I like the hardcore part. Many of my images are like that. I’m a black dude with a painted face. Maybe my style is bizarre. I first heard something like it in a song by Slick Rick, but also it’s just being in the Midwest (of the U.S.). Thank god I was born there. We get it from everywhere, all points north, south, east and west. What sets me apart is the style, the tone, and pitch, and the subject matter is a little different. What do you to do when you’re not on tour? I like to watch movies. I saw Insidious. It was spooky as hell and I like spooky s**t. F I N E

Tech N9ne, with special guests Krizz Kaliko, The Scale Breakers, Westcoast Familia & Dissikuss, plays Evergreen Hall May 25.

It had me spooked out. That’s when you know the movie is good, when even the king of darkness is spooked. That’s me. Who are the artists on your iPod? •

I like to hear Rick Ross. I brought that album with me on this tour. Also Kanye’s new album, I played that one to death. The album from the doors Waiting on the Sun.

I just love Jim Morrison. He did whatever he wanted and wrote from his heart. The name of my label, Strange Music comes from his song, People are Strange. He gave me a great idea, so much love to Jim Morrison. Ever been to Paris to see his grave? Let me tell you what happened last year. I went to Paris for the first time. Someone called me to do a show and I got to drink Jack with Jim. I put a recording of it on my CD of me whispering to Jim at his gravesite. What do you make of the Canadian hip hop scene? It’s totally alive. Look at Drake, he’s one of the best. TO is all right. It’s people like Kardinal Offishal. Yeah, it’s happening. Is it true you travel on tour with a fleet of vehicles? We have diesel tour buses. Several. We have to take our set and merchandising is just humongous. Who would you most like to share a stage with — living or dead? I have to say Jim Morrison. System of a Down. Rage against the Machine. Eminem. Oh well we done a video together with Em, does that count as sharing a stage? And put down Slipknot. How’s Montreal? We just started the tour and going to do the show tonight. I met all the wonderful fans today. We’re going to do 82 shows in 85 days. From 2006 to 2011 you’ve put out at least one album a year. That’s quite a lot to produce. Where do you get that strong work ethic? That’s crazy. I never count. I think it comes from being at the bottom where nobody shows you no love whatsoever. Then it starts to be automatic seeing the love because of your work. At one point I said this is what gets me to travel all over the world? I’m gonna work so hard! This s**t don’t happen for all of us. I saw something that saved my life. It was either gang banging or music or be a psychiatrist. I said s**t I’m gonna rap. I came to realize I am my fans’ psychiatrist. So damn, my music is like therapy. They hear my pain and it lessens theirs. So I ended up being a psychiatrist anyway. 6’s and 7’s is the name of your latest album. What that all about? It’s about being in a state of confusion and disarray. It’s always been confusing spiritually and the world is in disarray right Continued: RAPPER/ p33

Lowenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rural beginnings had a backdrop of bluegrass, where he played guitar along with his parents, aunts, uncles, and cousins in the family band. He earned starring roles in a number of plays and musicals while continuing to hone his musical skills.

You once said “I been planning success all my life.” What did you mean by that? I got it from Jim Carrey after he did The Mask. When he was

asked if he was surprised or shocked by the sudden fame, he said he’d been planning for everyone to catch up all his life. It was the same for me. I knew I wasn’t wrong. Even when I had no job, and no place to live, I had my writing. Now I’m seeing it come alive right before my eyes. It’s the craziest feeling. I could have been wrong, but I wasn’t.

Congratulations

Leaders

to the following students on achieving

Of Tomorrow

excellence at school and in our community

My name is Rachel Grange and I am a 17-year-old grade 12 student at Sardis Secondary School. I have an amazing family that always supports me and will love me no matter what. My brother Brandon is 20, my sister Ryley is 12 and my mom and dad. We have 2 dogs, a hamster and a fish. The one thing that we love to do the most as a family is camp. We go camping every May long weekend and every summer, meeting up with families we have been with since I was a baby. A couple of things I love to do in my spare time are music, helping others and being with my family and friends. I play guitar, sing and write my own songs. Music is the one thing I’ve always been good at and the one way I’ve been able to reach out to others. At school I’ve taken music every year, and now that I’m a senior I have the ability to go and help out in Mr. Biegel’s guitar classes. I love helping the kids and watching them grow into amazing musicians. School for me is a place where I can learn, grow, share and enjoy the people.

Julie is a very giving person. She has been very involved in numerous school activities and is a leader at G. W. Graham. A kind, caring community member with an infectious smile, Julie gives selflessly of her time to organize charity events, support younger students in their studies as a peer tutor, and still finds the time for a full time commitment to basketball, volleyball, soccer and ultimate. Julie has been involved in numerous charity fundraisers, sometimes as a leader and sometimes playing a supporting role. She has helped organize sports days at local elementary schools, the Terry Fox Run, a Seniors Tea and has served as emcee of the Graham Celebration Assemblies on numerous occasions. On so many levels, Julie has made significant contributions to our school. After graduating from Graham, Julie plans to attend UFV pursuing a career in Tourism. Congratulations, Julie, on being selected G. W. Graham’s Leader of Tomorrow.

Alex Verdonk is a highly motivated and energetic student. Alex constantly displays an enthusiasm for learning and is a positive force within her classes. She is taking an extremely demanding course load including AP Chemistry, AP Biology and calculus, while maintaining one of the highest GPA’s in the school. She is an extremely valuable member of the Environmental club, African Relief Club and Youth for Youth Club. She is also an asset to both school and community soccer teams. Alex is the type of student that every teacher and student loves to have in their classes. She is always willing to help others, she asks pointed and intelligent questions, and she is always ready with an answer to a question. Alex Verdonk is a positive and motivating force inside and outside of school and the classroom. Congratulations Alex on being selected Chilliwack’s Leader of Tomorrow for March.

For a strong, healthy body, choose free weights

other hand, require balance, integration, and strength of every joint and muscle in your body. For example, a standing dumbbell biceps curl requires the strength of your biceps, as well as your Tanja back, abdomiSHAW nals, and shoulder stabilizers to maintain proper posture against the dumbbell’s load. Put simply, the standing biceps curl requires a greater stimulation of the nervous system, recruits more muscles, and burns more calories. Free weights then,

will not only make you look great in a swimsuit, but you will also improve your performance in sports and in day to day activities. Strength training with free weights, when done properly, will actually reduce your chance of injury. For example, learning how to perform a proper squat, rather than reverting to the leg press, will help prevent back injuries while lifting a heavy object at home. Older adults should opt for free weights whenever possible to challenge their balance and joint stabilization. This will reduce the risk of falls, and make it easier to perform daily activities such as putting away groceries and walking up stairs.

Strength training is a vital part of any fitness program. Whether you choose fixed machines or free weights, strength training will make you look and feel better. A well designed program using free weights, however, will recruit more muscles, decrease your risk of injury, and be more versatile compared to a machine based routine. The result will be a body that not only looks better, but moves better as well. Machines move in a set track and come with chest pads, back and arm rests to make sure you are sitting upright. As a result, all those stabilizing and postural muscles needed in real life can take a rest. Free weights, on the

Regardless of the equipment used, poor technique, often the result of lifting too much weight, will lead to poor posture and overuse injuries. If you are new to strength training, invest in a reputable fitness professional to teach you how to train correctly. Free weights are less expensive and take up less space than machines, giving you the option to work out at home. You can also perform a greater variety of exercises than with machine weights. For example, the vertical chest press machine limits you to one movement. With free weights, on the other hand, you can perform a chest press on a flat bench, incline bench, or stability ball. You can also opt to use two arms or one arm at a time, or add in a rotational component. Changing up your strength routine will prevent boredom and avoid the training plateau as you are always challenging your body in new ways. Strength training is an essential component of a fitness regime. For the greatest results for your time spent training, opt for free weights. You will activate more muscles, prevent injuries and enjoy a more versatile workout at home or in the gym.

Soccer academy coming to Slesse Mt. Slesse Soccer Academy

Eric J. Welsh, The Progress With enrollment numbers heading in the wrong direction, Mt. Slesse middle school is taking a bold step to reverse the trend. The school has gained approval for a soccer skills academy that would be run with the help of Chilliwack FC. Running all the way through the school year, the format will have students mixing on-field training with soccer related classroom instruction. Students will get a physical education credit for completing the course, but Mt. Slesse principal Dan Heisler hopes they’ll get so much more out of it. “Having kids connected to the school is very important, and those kids who are connected through our drama productions, our shop areas or athletic programs seem to perform better academically,” he said. “They feel that connection, and the academy is one more opportunity for them to be engaged and involved and feel like they’re contributing to our school community.” Year one of the academy will be something of a pilot year, fine-tuning the curriculum and format with a smaller group of in-house students. The initial group will have between 25-30 reg-

istrants, all of them Mt. Slesse students. “Our plan is to implement it slowly and do a very good job with the small numbers before opening it up to the district the following year,” Heisler said. “Knowing the current students we have and the students we have coming into Grade 7 next year, we should have no trouble filling the class.” Chilliwack FC head coach Glenn Wilson will be the guiding force behind the program, developing curriculum that will not only develop the students as soccer players, but increase their understanding of the game. “I like to see youngsters who graduate from our club give back through coaching or officiating,” Wilson said. “Over the course of the year, we’ll be able to implement a program that gives these kids their basic level for refereeing, which will let them come back and officiate our miniball and spring soccer kids.” The B.C. Soccer Association offers many coaching courses, the most basic being the Community Coach Child certificate. “That lets them coach children up to the age of eight, and I think we’ll be able to implement something that has them, at the end of the year, leaving with a very basic coaching certificate,” Wilson said. “In the two or three years they might be involved in this program, we’d like to nurture in them a desire to give back and get involved.” CFC has tried this once previously with Chilliwack middle school, an attempt that ultimately failed due to low enrollment. Wilson

feels Mt. Slesse should be a much better fit. “The catchment area and knowing where a lot of our rep players come from, I think this is a perfect location,” Wilson said. “The school has done a great job researching academies and setting the table for the program.” CFC has added tons of programs in recent years, earning a reputation as an association fully dedicated to developing high-end players. Already offering a full slate of internal academies, Wilson called this the next logical step in CFC’s evolution. “Building a soccer culture within the schools I think is the next step for us,” he noted. “They say the ideal trainingto-game ratio is three or four to one. So, if kids are getting a couple practices with their club teams and a couple school sessions, they’re hitting that mark.” While Wilson will be around for several onfield sessions, he’ll leave much of the coaching in the capable hands of James Marshall, a Scottish import with a vast amount of soccer knowledge. “I do want to be around the program, monitor it and make sure we’re doing the right things, but I won’t be there the entire time,” Wilson said. Back to logistics, students will be expected to maintain certain standards to remain in the academy. Mt. Slesse’s Carolyn Morrison will be the soccer academy teacher, charged with making sure those academic and behaviour standards are met. “We’re not saying they have to maintain an A average because we know that kids come

with different abilities,” Heisler said of the academic expectations. “What we’ll be looking at are work habits, paying attention in class and staying on top of homework and assignments.” Mt. Slesse’s soccer pitch got an expensive makeover last year, and now ranks as one of the

nicer fields in the district. But the Townsend Park turf field(s) will play a role in the academy, particularly during the early fall. “Mostly through November, December and January, and if we encounter snow we’ll probably end up in the Landing Leisure Centre

for some indoor stuff,” Heisler elaborated. “Through the better weather we certainly want to take advantage of our sand-base field.” The Chilliwack School District will provide bus transportation to and from the training venues, with the cost covered by the tuition fee, which will be $600

per year. Students will participate in approximately 80 on-field sessions (70 minutes) and six classroom sessions during the school year. An information meeting will be held on Wednesday, 7 p.m. at Mt. Slesse for anyone with questions about the program.

The Fraser Valley Volleyball Club’s U-14 Blues are national champions. The group of 14 boys from Chilliwack, Abbotsford, Langley and Surrey travelled to Saskatoon last weekend, sweeping the field to win the coveted Volleyball Canada Canadian Open championship banner. Day one of the competition (Thursday) saw the Blues defeat Saskatchewan’s Prince Alber t Smashing Bananas in straight sets (25-7, 25-21) followed by equally impressive wins over Alberta’s Sherwood Park (25-16, 25-7) and Winnipeg’s Cardinal club (25-14, 25-21). Abbotsford’s Keaton Boughen led the team on day one with 18 kills and three service aces. Middle hitter Reece Frey of Surrey had 11 kills, six aces and 10 stuff blocks in perhaps his best day of the season. Abbotsford’s Simon Friesen added 41 assists as the team’s starting setter on day

one, while Chilliwack’s Mark Harrison (five kills, three aces and six digs) and Levi Block (two aces, 11 digs) were strong on defense. Abbotsford’s Quinn Sojonky (nine kills) and Ben Friesen (three aces) also played significant roles. Day two began with a straight-sets win over Edmonton’s NAVC Gold (25-21, 27-25) followed by victories over the Steinbach (Manitoba) Junior Sabres (25-19, 25-14) and Winnipeg’s Winman Wave (25-11, 25-10). Middle hitter Curtis Schopf of Chilliwack set the tone for the day with a pair of thunderous middle hits in the opening match, ending the day with eight kills, five digs and three stuff blocks. Setter Jordan Koslowsky from Abbotsford had 61 assists on day two as he led the offense to a remarkable 43.18 kill efficiency on 132 attack attempts while adding five aces. The perfect 6-0 record

after two days landed the boys in a national quarter-final battle with Winnipeg’s 204 Gold, the top-ranked team in the country. The B.C. boys were not to be denied on this day, pounding the Manitobans in straight sets, 25-17, 25-16. That was just the beginning on day three as the boys got stronger and stronger. The semi-final was a route over Winnipeg’s Winman Tide by scores 25-21, 25-13. The final was a rematch of the B.C. championship of a week previous, with the Blues again downing the Victoria Flyers 25-13, 25-22. Abbotsford’s Jordan Loewen and Langley’s Steven Hsu led the offense all day. Loewen had 38 kills, four aces, 16 digs and four stuff blocks while Hsu added 25 kills, four aces and 18 digs. Josiah Mooy of Surrey and Abbotsford’s Jonah Swanson and Bryson Marazzi were the defensive stars for

the champions. Mooy was dominant at the net with 14 kills and 15 stuff blocks in the middle. Swanson was spectacular with a serve receive average of 2.14 on 28 attempts while adding 22 digs. Marrazi had 11 digs in a specialized defensive role, none more amazing than the two he stabbed off of Victoria’s top outside hitter during the last six rallies of the gold medal match. Both digs led to critical points for Fraser Valley and ultimately helped seal the national title. The local boys end their season with a record of 39–12, with only one of the 12 losses coming against their own age group. The other 11 losses were all against U-15 and U-16 squads. The boys are coached by head coach Duncan Harrison of Chilliwack, assisted by Ryan Friesen, Tyler Koslowsky and Brad Kufske (Abbotsford) and Dan Jansen van Doorn(Langley).

Grizzlies vanquish Vipers to claim Crusaders Cup The G.W. Graham Grizzlies scored a dramatic last second try to down the Vedder Vipers 5-4 on Monday, claiming the Crusaders Cup at the fifth annual Chilliwack Middle School Championships. The teams played a terrific match highlighted by big hits and slick ball movement — not surprising given the two

teams tied their only match during league play. Meanwhile, the Chilliwack middle school Chargers built up a large lead early and held on for a 9-6 victory over the Mount Slesse Timberwolves in the consolation final. A flurry of tries allowed the A.D. Rundle Rams to claim fifth with

Wandering Eyes Flounders and halibut are born with eyes on either side of their heads. But as they lay on their side with one eye in the mud, the eye on the underside migrates to the other side so both eyes face up.

Hitting Your Car The over two million starlings in North America are descendants of the 60 birds released in Central Park, New York by Eugene Schieffelin, who headed an acclimatization society trying to introduce to North America every bird species mentioned in the works of William Shakespeare.

astroadvice ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 There are some situations for which there are no answers, Aries. In these times, you should defer to someone with more authority on the subject. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, a number of people are questioning the way you are operating lately. Do not be dissuaded from action. You know the reasons behind your decisions. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Nominal purchases can quickly add up to quite a sum, Gemini. Keep track of your spending because you can easily deplete your funds without even

realizing it. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 There is a romantic match out there for you single Cancers. It could just take a little more looking this week. Attached Cancer men and women will form a stronger romantic bond. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 Leo, be a little more patient because something you started a while ago has yet to be resolved. It can only get done if you buckle down for the next few days. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, it can be hard to ignore gossip but that is precisely what you need to

do this week. Foul words can hurt only if you let them get under your skin. Keep friends close by. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 There’s no need to worry, Libra. You have it all under control even if it doesn’t seem that way. Once you are done you will see that you had it covered. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 Scorpio, creative processes will keep you busy this week. Get involved in a hobby or project that will take several days to complete. Then begin a new one. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 Sagittarius, a relationship comes to an end and it leaves you feeling a bit detached. The quicker you can move on the better off you will be. Family softens the blow. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, if there isn’t anything positive to say, simply keep your lips closed and be inconspicuous. This can be difficult to do, but it’s best for everyone involved. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Few things can get you riled up more than dishonesty, Aquarius. Confront someone who has led you astray this week for resolution. You will feel better for having done it. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Picking up the pieces of something that didn’t work out is difficult. But not trying at all is even worse.

KENNEDY Laura Ruth

(nee Munro) May 13 1917 – May 7, 2011 With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Laura Kennedy at Heri- KENNEDY tage Village, Chilliwack, a few days shy of her 94th birthday. Mom was born in Rosedale, B.C., on Mother’s Day, May 13, 1917 to Colon & Helen Munro. The 2nd of 6 children, she grew up on the family farm in Rosedale. The Munro’s were among the earlier of the pioneer families to locate to Rosedale in 1877. Mom met Dad in New Westminster while he was stationed there during WW2. They were married March 2, 1946 and after a brief stay in Quebec, moved to Rosedale where they raised their large family. Writing poetry, solving crosswords and puzzles were some of Mom’s great pleasures, but Mom loved her garden the most! She pampered, harvested, catalogued and reused her own seeds, year after year. Mom also volunteered her time playing her accordion at several seniors’ residences in Chilliwack. Before all else, Mom was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother and she lived a full life. Mom was pre-deceased by her siblings, her infant daughter Maureen in 1955 and her husband, Charlie in 2002. They were married for 56 years. Mom will be sorely missed by her six children, Gloria (Bob) McLean, Wayne (Fay) Kennedy, Faye Kirkpatrick, Donna (Ivan) Larson, Barry (Rose) Kennedy and Dallas (Leslie) Kennedy; 15 grandchildren and 13 great-grandchildren. Family and friends are invited to gather for a celebration of Mom’s life on Monday, May 16th at 1:00 pm at the Camp River Community Hall.
