Serial killer charged in Mountain murder

■ D IVING F OR T RASH

Prisoner killed in November Robert Freeman The Progress A murder charge has finally been laid in the case of a Mountain Institution inmate found dead in his cell shared with another prisoner. Michael Wayne McGray, 45, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of 33-year-old Jeremy Michael Phillips on Nov. 23, 2010. While the case of one dead prisoner found in a locked cell with another live prisoner might seem open and shut to the public, police investigators did not have the luxury of jumping to conclusions, an RCMP spokesman told The Progress. “Nothing is really open and shut in homicide or law enforcement any more,” RCMP Cpl. Dale Carr, spokesman for the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team, said to explain the lengthy six-month-long delay in laying a charge. “We just needed to have the forensic analysis to ensure that somehow, somebody else didn’t get in that cell,” he said. And the suspect, McGray, wasn’t going anywhere, he added. Had the murder happened in the community, police would have put a higher priority on the evidence sent to the forensic lab for analysis.

Kelly Knox of Surrey rolls a tire out of Cultus Lake during a cleanup at the south end of Main Beach last weekend. Knox was with a team of about 25 divers from throughout the Fraser Valley who took part in the Splash for Trash that day. Typical items they found at the bottom of the lake were bottles, cans, cellphones, sunglasses and car parts. This area of the lake that the divers were cleaning is a popular swimming area and is also home to many fish and other water creatures that tend to ingest harmful garbage thrown into the lake.

‘Shared ownership’ is not on the table: Yale Chief Robert Freeman The Progress Yale First Nation Chief Robert Hope says he’s willing to talk with Sto:lo leaders to ease their concerns over the treaty that will effectively give the small band control over the lucrative Fraser Canyon fishery. Hope said the Yale people are willing to talk about an agreement to work out access to fishing sites in the canyon claimed by some Sto:lo families, but would not consider a “shared territory” agreement as sug-

gested by Sto:lo Nation leader Joe Hall. “We don’t own the river, but we do own the land,” Hope said in a telephone interview Friday. And as owners of the land, he explained, the Yale people must manage it to ensure its highest and best use. “The way I see it, this is the very reason we entered the treaty process, to govern our land,” he said. So, access is on the table, but shared ownership is not. However, Sto:lo leaders say they have ample evidence to back up their

claim to the land, but federal and provincial negotiators have ignored it to date. Further, the Sto:lo claim the proposed treaty violates the B.C. treaty process and the completion of “shared territory agreements” before final settlements are signed because at that point they become constitutionally protected. Hall also suggested in an earlier interview that it is “morally” wrong for federal and provincial negotiators to give control over the canyon and other sites sacred to 10,000 Sto:lo to the 150 members of the Yale First

The issue is not an “over-lapping” land claim, he added, but “a Sto:lo village that’s attempting to get a treaty” that gives it the ability to determine access to an area that he said “belongs to all Sto:lo.” But Chief Hope adamantly denies the Yale people have any links to the Sto:lo, with their own distinct language and cultural practices. The Yale band was “lumped” into the Sto:lo tribe by English government officials as a matter of convenience, he says. Continued: TREATY/ p9

Nation. Hall predicted “violence and bloodshed” during the fishing season, if no solution to the dispute is found, and that the Sto:lo would “never” accept any third-party’s control over culturally significant areas, like cemeteries and Transformer sites. “It’s not a fight with the Yale, it’s a fight with the government,” Hall said in an interview Monday, after taking the Sto:lo case to B.C. Aboriginal Relations Minister Mary Polak. “They’re trying to do through the back door what they couldn’t do through the front door,” he said.

‘Factory schools’ leaving students behind For more than five years, the Chilliwack school district has consistently lagged behind the provincial average in graduating students. In the 2009/10 school year, just 69 per cent of students made it to graduation – 11 per cent below the provincial average. The Chilliwack Progress is putting faces to those numbers. This is the final part of a four-part series. Katie Bartel The Progress

Everything was really, really easy, nothing challenged me, and I just stopped caring.” Samson, who can spend hours drawing buildings and creating Lego monstrosities, checked out. Rather than listen to his teachers lecture at the front of the class, he read through his textbooks, and when he got through those, he stopped going to class altogether. “I learn more browsing the Internet in one day than I did in a whole year at school.”

He was expelled in Grade 10. School districts across the province, including Chilliwack, have been researching how to incorporate a more personalized, 21st century learning format into their schools. With 21st century learning, education is tailored to individual student’s needs, interests and aptitudes. It’s more research-driven than textbook, more active learning than passive, more student centred than teacher-driven. The focus isn’t solely on academics, rather it addresses the social, emotional and intellectual needs of each student in the system. Continued: DOGWOOD/ p5

Dogwood determination DOGWOOD from p3 “We are going through a renaissance period in our public education system right now that has finally awakened to the reality that the pedagogies, the practices, and even the curriculum is not adequately preparing our students for life in the 21st century and is not reflecting life in the 21st century,” says Awneet Sivia, head of the teacher education program at the University of the Fraser Valley. A significant component of 21st century learning includes technology, which Sivia says is long overdue. “The reality of children’s communication, learning and access to information is technologically based and that needs to be mirrored, and in fact, further enhanced by what they do in schools – not diminished by it.” But the problems in schools aren’t centred solely around disengagement. For Samson’s older sister Julia Frances, 18, it was about being accepted. Julia first started being bullied by her peers in Grade 1. She came from a low-

income, broken family. Her mom couldn’t afford to buy her new clothes or school supplies every year. And her peers preyed on that. She tried homeschooling, but because her mom had other priorities with a boyfriend and a baby in the house, she fell behind. When she returned to high school, she couldn’t cope. “I’m not lazy and I’m not dumb ... I actually enjoy learning. I just couldn’t deal with school. “There are so many problems in our schools, kids talking back to their teachers, girls selling themselves, drugs ... our generation is so screwed up psychologically. I couldn’t handle it. I couldn’t deal with the kids and how they were.” Julia dropped out in Grade 11. For Evan, who requested his name be changed, staying in school wasn’t a choice. “I needed a job to survive.” At 16, when his

mom’s boyfriend moved into their house, Evan was told to leave. Finishing school fell to the bottom of his priorities. For two years Evan struggled to find work to offset the costs of rent, bills and groceries, but because he was a high school dropout, he was often overlooked by employers. He lived off rice, worked under the table, and sold his guitar and Playstation to survive. And although he has since acquired seasonal employment that pays $15 an hour, it’s still a struggle. “I live pay cheque to pay cheque.” And he’s constantly judged by employers, parents, and peers. “When you meet people for the first time, and they ask if you graduated, you don’t always get the best looks when you tell them you dropped out. They assume you’re dumb, even when you’re not.” Tim Bohr, director of Youth Services, says success in schools

and in the community, starts at home. “There are reasons why kids are dropping out of school, and typically it’s because stuff is happening at home or in their life. “Just one caring adult, that can be the turning point in the life of an at-risk youth.” On June 11, Clara Hooper will be crossing the commencement stage ahead of her two boys. “No matter what in life, if you want to advance forward, the minimum you need is your Dogwood diploma. “High school isn’t just about what you’re learning – it’s about dealing with people, dealing with different personalities to achieve a goal. And just like in a workplace, there are different personalities and you’re not going to get along with everyone, but you still have to work with them. By proving that you can stick it through and get your Dogwood diploma, you are proving that you have what it takes.”

Pointsof View

The Chilliwack Progress is published by Black Press Group Ltd., every Tuesday and Thursday at 45689 Spadina Ave., Chilliwack. The Progress is a member of the Canadian Circulation’s Audit Board, Canadian Community Newspaper Association, British Columbia and Yukon Community Newspaper Association and B.C. Press Council.

Looking for solutions As students prepare for the timehonoured traditions of graduation next month, a disproportionate number of Chilliwack students won’t be joining them. That’s because the high school completion rate in Chilliwack falls below the provincial average – something it has done consistently for several years. Over the last four issues, Chilliwack Progress education reporter Katie Bartel has tried to go beyond those numbers and identify some of the faces behind the statistics. What becomes clear is that the reasons for Chilliwack’s poor showing are as diverse as the people affected. Roughly one third of Chilliwack students who start Grade 8 won’t get their high school diploma within the allotted time frame. That doesn’t mean they won’t graduate. Many students who leave school end up returning, or gaining their Dogwood through other means. Nonetheless, for many more, once they’re gone, they are gone for good. It would be a mistake to assume anyone who fails to finish high school will be a failure in life. However, life without a high school diploma is decidedly more difficult. In lost income alone, a high school dropout earns $104,000 less in his

or her lifetime than someone with a diploma, a 2008 study done for the Canadian Council on Learning estimates. The study also found that “high school leavers” are more likely to draw on social assistance, experience poor health and wind up in jail. The overall costs to society are enormous. The costs to individuals, incalculable. But finding solutions is much harder than identifying the problem. Educational experts have been ruminating this topic for decades. One theme that has emerged is “student engagement” from an early age. Part of that responsibility, of course, falls with the schools. It is something every teacher struggles with as class composition becomes complex and resources more scarce. But the responsibility also rests in the home. The success of any student is made more likely through a strong partnership between home and school. As we call on the Chilliwack school district to explore innovative ways to improve local high school completion rates, it is important we remember that educators cannot do it alone; that our success in encouraging our children will ultimately lead to their success.

L OCALLY G LOBAL

Counting down to the Stanley Cup playoffs That 3-2 double overtime win by the Canucks last Tuesday was just meant to be. For four decades, the team and the fans have endured enough bad luck, disappointment and heartache in pursuit of the Stanley Cup. But this season the focus and the talent have been stronger than ever, pushing boundaries and reaching deeper than ever. There was that goal by Ryan Kesler who seemed to have hurt his groin earlier in the game only to come back and tie it up with just 13.2 seconds left in regulation play. He tipped a point shot by Henrik Sedin and the puck found its way through the legs of San Jose goalie Antti Niemi. Then there was that moment when the puck bounced off the glass and Patrick Marleau’s stick right into

Kevin Bieksa’s wheelhouse for him to bunnyhop it into San Jose’s net in the second overtime. For a second he was the only player who seemed to know where the puck was! With a chance at the finals, the goal likely launched a Margaret few new NHL legends. After all, it EVANS happened exactly 17 years since the 1994 overtime moment when the Canucks beat Toronto Maple Leafs to face the New York Rangers. Hockey is full of legend, lore, rituals and superstitions. From playoff beards supposedly begun by the NY Islanders in the 1980s to untouchable trophies en route

to the Stanley Cup, hockey binds with all great sports for good luck rituals. Last Tuesday, nobody touched the Clarence Campbell Trophy when it was presented to the Canucks for winning the Western Conference finals. Good luck is all in how to tape the stick, the favourite old T-shirt under the uniform, the rhythm of gearing up, the order of go leaving the dressing room, the loonie burial at centre ice during international games, talking to the goal post, not talking to anyone, tapping the stick, eating chicken, what to drink, when to drink, and shooting the first warm up goal. The rituals are the individual hallmarks of hockey in pursuit of that elusive Stanley Cup, the oldest trophy competed for by professional players in North America. It

comes with its own stories having been kicked into the Rideau Canal, served as a flower pot and a christening bowl, left in a snow bank, stolen, displayed in the Kremlin, been duplicated in stunning Lego knock-offs and finally retired to the Hockey Hall of Fame. Just which team will triumph holding the cup above their heads is down to seven games, max. “This play-off the Canucks have had more trouble with so called inferior teams,” said Chilliwack hockey enthusiast Ken Lewis. “Chicago took them to seven. Nashville took them to six and San Jose, picked by a lot of people to take it all, barely lasted five games. San Jose was far and away the deepest team the Canucks faced.” Now the Canucks face the

Boston Bruins who last won the cup in 1972. “Boston is here because of the stellar play of one line, one great defenceman and one very good goalie,” said Lewis. “It’s not even going to be close to being enough (especially) if the Bruins starts taking penalties. Vancouver on the power play has been absolutely lethal. They are converting at about 30%. Boston’s power play is staggering along at about 7%. The Sedins are playing at MVP level. Seeing Kesler come back reminded me of Trevor Linden coming back in 1994 with a broken nose and a smashed face. If Luongo plays like he did against the Sharks, we’ll be just fine.” Prediction? The Canucks win it in five. One more sleep and it’s finally go Canucks go!

Budget cuts felt in the classroom Re: Finishing school in spite of the system, Chilliwack Progress, May 27). The touching stor y of Sebastian White struck a chord with me, and I felt the other side of the story needed to be addressed. This article discusses how MCFD and Youth Services help and support our youth. What it fails to mention is how the Chilliwack School District would like to provide help and support for these youth. That is because disappointingly, it does not. Last year alone, the Chilliwack School District cut funding from its budget, and that included a large part to alternative education: the kind of program that helped get Sebastian White back on track and back into the regular school system. Educational Assistant positions were cut back on time, with a few jobs being cut entirely. That means less support was provided this year in these alternative programs to help students who struggle academically. In addition, last year funding was cut to food budgets which provide food for youth who may not get

much at home, or who are couch surfing without any means of purchasing food for themselves. A quote from Sebastian White from your article states: “The thing is, I’m lucky. I’m a really strong person, I’m charismatic, intelligent, and it was easier for me, even when I was in a position where I felt powerless.” What about the other 200 plus youth in Chilliwack that have been identified as functionally homeless or face abuse, addiction, or neglect at home and may not be as strong, charismatic, or intelligent as Sebastian? What about those children who feel lost and do not have the inner strength to carry on? Sadly, the budget cuts employed by the School District last year also cut back on on-site Counsellors in the alternative programs as well as Learning Assistant teachers. Where students are the most at risk for needing help dealing with home problems and personal struggles, where they may not be as strong emotionally as Sebastian White, the on-site counselling has dropped from full time to two

days a week and the Learning Assistance has practically disappeared. Teachers and support staff at these alternate schools are our unsung heroes and supporters of these lost children. With all the cutbacks and lack of support from a District whose graduating students are lagging behind, teachers and staff in alternate settings spend their own time, money, and heart and soul trying to make it work for students that the District appears to have forgotten. Sebastian White is to be commended for his strength and perseverance; however I wish it was that way for all vulnerable children. The lack of investment by the District of at-risk youth and alternative education sends messages of inadequacy to these students and is directly related to the failure of these schools to meet their needs. If we would like things to change, we need to see support for the staff working with at-risk youth and funding for these schools increased rather than drastically decreased in order to ensure the success of these children for the future.

HST push not needed Seniors say thanks Over the years I have finally come to the conclusion that our politicians, in general, do not hold members of the public, the taxpayer, to be precise, in high regard. They actually appear to think we are really stupid, and can be treated as such. The Liberals screwed us when they implemented the hated HST without any consultation with the people, they profess to represent, after saying they had no intention of doing so. They definitely knew that the public didn’t want the HST, but put it in place anyway. Now efforts are being made to get rid of it. It’s now in place, against our wishes, and now the same people are spending huge amounts of our money, on the media, to convince us to keep it. Imagine, it’s our money/ tax dollars, that’s being poured down the drain in order to beat us into submission. It also appears that if we do manage to dump the HST, we will be on the hook for millions

of dollars more, to be returned to the federal government. How sweet it is. Common sense seems to be in short supply when it comes to our supposedly honorable representatives in Victoria. I strongly believe that all our elected politicians are in it only for the huge salaries and juicy pensions, and not for the benefit of the people they are elected to represent. Governments have proven, time and again, they can’t handle our money in an intelligent manner, but continue to squander it as though there is an unlimited supply of it. You know, and I know there is a limit. I suggest that these leaks in our money bucket be plugged, and get over it. If they ran there family finances this way, they would all soon be bankrupt and living on the street, as many now are. Sign me “Disgusted”. Richard Parent Chilliwack, B.C.

The staff and students are to be commended for a job well done. The cafeteria was transformed into a beautiful dining room with white linen table cloths, black napkins set in longstemmed water glasses and the menus that adorned the tables. All was very elegant.

School district sets meeting dates Chilliwack school board is adding dates to its schedule of public meetings for next year. Last year in an effort to cut costs, the board approved a schedule with two fewer dates, but because of an increased workload at meetings, some of which weren’t adjourned until close to 10 p.m., the board has decided to go back to conducting meetings on the second and fourth Tuesday of the month, except for September, November, January, March and June, which will have only one meeting.

Talk of violence could send wrong message, says Yale Chief Robert Hope TREATY from Front Hope also said Yale beach was not included in treaty talks, for the express purpose of giving the Sto:lo - and any others - access to the river. “We purposely did not negotiate for (Yale beach), so the Sto:lo could still come up and exercise their right to fish, the right they say they have,” he said. The federal fisheries department continues to issue licences to the Sto:lo to fish in the canyon area, he added, and “will not stop doing that, regardless of the treaty.” But on the land, Chief Hope said the Yale intend to manage access to protect it from careless campers, and to ensure the safety of his people - and others camping in the area. “We want to make it totally clear the Yale territory will not be a haven for bad people like thieves and drug dealers, because where there’s fish in the summertime, there’s money, and where there’s money there’s alcohol and drugs,” he said. “You have to be able to feel safe,” he added. “You have to be able to trust the people in the next camp.” Hope said he was disappointed by

Sto:lo leaders’ talk of violence because it could send the wrong message that they condone such acts. “They’re a desperate people, and desperate people say desperate things,” he said. “What I’m concerned about is what they may do, the violent things their leaders have mentioned.” He also said he believes it is “silly” for Sto:lo leaders to be “using the grassroots people’s money to challenge the treaty. They could use it for a better purpose.” After all, he said, Yale claims have been proven by 17 years of treaty negotiations with the federal and provincial governments. Hope said he is “agreeable” to talk again with Sto:lo leaders, but felt his “best option” might be to talk to individual Sto:lo about their concerns. “The Yale First Nation and myself, we’re agreeable to talk to Sto:lo leaders again, if not we’ll talk to grassroots people,” he said. “All they want to do is fish and look after the fish in the traditional manner.” The treaty is expected to be approved by B.C. MLAs in a vote this week. If approved, it goes to the federal government for final approval. rfreeman@theprogress.com

News Tom Fletcher Black Press VICTORIA – If they’re not disrupted by a strike at Canada Post, more than three million voting packages will be sent out in mid-June so voters can have their say on the harmonized sales tax. Voting packages will be sent out the week of June 13 to Vancouver Island and B.C. Interior locations, Elections BC officials said in a media briefing Monday. Packages will be mailed to Lower Mainland homes the week of June 20, in an effort to have all delivered by June 24. Canada Post employees have given notice that they may go on strike by Friday. If a strike disrupts the province-wide ballot on the HST, Elections BC will extend its return period as necessary to give voters time to consider the choice. Assuming no disruption in postal service, ballots must be completed and returned to Elections BC by July 22. They can be mailed in or returned to one of 60 Service BC offices around the province. Assistant chief electoral officer Anton Boegman said Elections BC has allowed until Aug. 25 to count and verify every returned ballot, and announce a decision. Voters will mark a ballot yes or no to the referendum question: “Are you in favour of extinguishing the HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) and reinstating the PST (Provincial Sales Tax) in conjunction with the GST (Goods and Services Tax)?” The ballots are to be marked and placed in a privacy envelope. That envelope goes inside a registration envelope that voters must sign and fill in their date of birth. That envelope goes into a postage-paid return envelope to be mailed or dropped off at a Service BC location. Elections BC is also setting up five collection centres for ballots in the Lower Mainland, at Capilano Mall in North Vancouver, City Square Shopping Centre in Vancouver, Lougheed Town Centre in Burnaby, Semiahmoo Shopping Centre in Surrey and Willowbrook Shopping Centre in Langley.

Police hope to stem abandoned 911 calls “Stay on the line.” If you inadvertently call 911 - don’t hang up! Because dispatchers at the Fraser Valley RCMP’s Operations Communications Centre must trace each “abandoned” 911 call - when there’s no one answering on the other end of the line - to make sure there is in fact no emergency. That means hours spent in staff time tracking the mystery call, and the time of the police officers who are dispatched to investigate. Shelly Mercer, OCC manager, said there are a “variety of reasons” for abandoned calls, from people who simply hang up when they realize the error, to children playing with the phone. “But the biggest one, that’s a huge timeconsumer, is calls from mobile phones with 911 programmed into them,” she said.

of the line, and no one answered the dispatcher’s call. The cellphone was eventually located using GPS, and attending police officers found an unconscious man in a motor vehicle accident. “When we tracked it down, in fact there was an emergency, a vehicle had rolled over and was upside down in a ditch,” Mercer said. Usually, in populated areas, there is more than one 911 call, if the emergency is real, she said, “but we just never know.” Few of the total 48,558 calls to 911 last year were frivolous or inappropriate like people calling police to complain about barking dogs or other minor complaints. Mercer also said some 911 calls do come from people who are not in a criminal or emergency situation, “but it might be appropriate (to call 911) because they are afraid.” But abandoned calls are time consuming and a waste of taxpayer dollars because they could

be from anywhere, from someone’s purse in downtown Chilliwack or a hiker’s backpack on the far side of Mount Cheam. So, take 911 off your speed dial, and if you do call 911 by mistake - don’t hang up.

last year came from mobile phones with 911 on speed dial, which inadvertently called the emergency dispatcher as they were jostled in pockets or purses, or knapsacks carried on backpacking trips into the wild. The latter are the most difficult to verify as non emergencies. “In most of those instances (of abandoned calls), nothing is said and nothing is heard,” Mercer said. The dispatcher must try to locate the owner of the cellphone, by calling or texting them until they answer, or by using GPS to locate the phone and dispatching police to investigate. Of course, real emergency calls that come in during these searches for abandoned calls take priority. But sometimes, what sounds like an abandoned 911 call can be a real emergency. Mercer recalled an incident earlier this month when a 911 call was received, but no one spoke on the other end

Bartel 604.702.5575 • kbartel@theprogress.com

Getting an iPod education Katie Bartel The Progress Oh, how times have changed. Cell phones, iPods and other hand-held devices used to be shunned by the public school system; if kids were caught in class with them, into the teacher’s drawer they went, never to be seen again. Not anymore. After just six months of integrating iPods and iPads into four schools in the district, Michael Haworth, the school district’s technology helping teacher who was the lead hand behind the integration, was almost giddy with the results. “I saw amazing things,” he said in a presentation at Tuesday night’s school board meeting. “I saw kindergarten students all the way to Grade 10 students working and developing things ... it was so natural, it was as if they’d always held one in their hands.” For some, that could very well be the case. Students today are classified as screenagers, spending hours in front of computers, talk-

ing on cell phones and plugged into iPods or other mp3 players. And because of that, school districts like Chilliwack are having to rethink their policies and teaching tactics when it comes to such devices. In January 60 iPod Touches and four iPads were incorporated into the school system as research tools with their software and Internet applications, podcasts, online teaching tools, etc. Watson elementary, Strathcona elementary, A.D. Rundle middle and Chilliwack secondary were the first schools to use them. CSS Math teacher Ed Klettke used the iPods for such things as review. With the iPad, he would pose a question to his students that would connect to their iPods where they would answer. Klettke could see which students answered the questions correctly, who was struggling, and who hadn’t yet answered. “I was getting immediate feedback and could see who needed help,” he said. A.D. Rundle teacher Justin Moore used his

iPad to connect with parents, to send them quick emails notifying them of a grade their child got on a test, or if their child hadn’t completed their homework. He also conducted a final exam, where students were required to create a video using the iPods. “Wow, that was powerful to watch,” he said. “They all knew it was a test, and they all got into it. There were no kids with their heads in their hands saying ‘I don’t how.’” Jim Edgecombe and Heather Moore’s Grade 6 class at Strathcona made a video to express their thoughts on iPods in the classroom. One student’s declaration summed it up perfectly. “I’m a touch learner,” he said. “I learn better by touching, not just by hearing and seeing ... I am a digital native.” Eight new schools will experience the iPods and iPads next year, four schools for four months each. The district does not plan to purchase any more, but hopes to utilize the technology students are already bringing into the classrooms.

The Pacific Allstar Cheerleading squad came out to support the Canadian Tire Jump Start Day on Saturday. The event raises money to help kids get involved in organized sports. JUSTIN KEITCH/ PROGRESS

Science gets recognized at Highroad Academy to science education has had a significant impact on the learning and interests of their students. At Highroad Academy, Munro hasn’t let limited resources slow his love for science down. To ensure science happens at his school, he’s approached other schools for excess inventory, has scavenged garage sales for science materials, and has even made his own equipment. He’s also inspired his students with out-ofclass activities like the horticulture club that has several students regularly volunteering their own time to grow plants and vegetables at the University of the Fraser Valley green-

More than meets the eye: real estate agent, businessman, photographer, poet, family man, churchgoer, volunteer, and hunter. I would describe Dave’s style as servant-hearted leadership. He’s had a talent for negotiating and a passion for real estate since his youth. Utilizing honed instincts, careful research and a drive to bless, many have enjoyed Dave’s timely counsel in strategic life-altering moves as he skillfully places the needs of others ahead of his own. Paint him the picture so he can look through your eyes.

Selling your home? Get rid of the clutter! Most homebuyers put storage space high on their list of priorities when shopping for a new home. No matter how much storage space a home offers, it’s typical for prospective buyers to feel that it won’t be enough, especially if they are confronted with piles of old sports equipment, sewing projects and outdated magazines when they open your closet for inspection, and they will! Are your storage areas filled to maximum capacity? Don’t despair – help for the hopelessly cluttered home does exist? Strategies for increasing your home storage and decreasing your storable belongings will make your current home more attractive to buyers and your future home more comfortable for you. Even a large walk-in closet will appear inadequate if it is stuffed from floor to ceiling with your possessions. When selling one home and moving to another, you can deal with disorderly closets by eliminating your excess “stuff” before you pay the movers to pack it up and deliver it to your new residence. Why fill your brand new closets with things that just sat in boxes, collecting dust in your previous home? Your miscellaneous belongings could earn you extra income at your moving sale, or you could make a donation to a local charity. Getting your home ready to sell could also include renting a temporary storage unit for the furniture and collectibles you just can’t bear to sell or give away.

Hello, my name is Corny Woelders, I am one of the proud owners of Landmark Realty Chilliwack. I am married and have two great kids. I grew up in Chilliwack and graduated from C.S.S.S. (a long time ago) and then moved to Abbotsford where I met my wife of 23 years. I predominately worked in the poultry and dairy industry and also ran our own Poultry Farm. I became a Realtor® a number of years ago and worked out of the Landmark Abbotsford office. However, I found myself selling a lot of homes in Chilliwack for friends and family, so when a Landmark franchise came available, my partners and I knew that Chilliwack was the place to go. Today’s low interest rates, plus low prices, plus high inventory, equals the perfect buyers market. So come on in and visit our office and I will help you with all your real estate needs.

Homebuyers who are moving into a new home where closet space is minimal might consider installing custom organizers in the house. Proper storage organizers can double and even triple the amount of items you can fit into your closet without making it look crowded. Depending on what kinds of items you have, and how you prefer them to be stored, you will get a feeling for what type of cabinet, cupboard, shelf, rack or display unit should be installed. A large collection of sweaters, for example, could be folded on pull out shelves for easy visibility or tucked away in drawers in the master bedroom closet. Home designers who create elegant storage solutions often comment that, when asked to separate the clothing they’ve actually worn with clothing that has stayed in the closet, most people realize that they only wear approximately one-quarter of the clothing they own. Paying attention to details, such as using the same style of hanger throughout the closet, helps storage areas to look elegant and well organized, more like a designer boutique than a thrift store. When you finish putting all of your closets in order, then do the same with the attic, basement and pantry. Welldesigned home storage reassures prospective homebuyers that your house provides ample space for them – and for the contents of their closets!

The Chilliwack

Progress Eric

Welsh 604.702.5572 • sports@theprogress.com

Australian adventure for CSS grad Eric J. Welsh, The Progress Sean Hayes never thought he’d have the opportunity to represent his country. Growing up in Chilliwack he played soccer and basketball. He was good at both. On the court, he was a force for Joe Mauro’s Frontiersmen at Chilliwack secondary school. On the pitch, he was good enough to play for the University of British Columbia, also suiting up for the Chilliwack Rapids. But he wasn’t international good. As he graduated from CSS in 1994, Hayes had grudgingly accepted the idea that he’d never wear the maple leaf. Post-graduation, Hayes spent five years in Australia, the home country of his parents, Esme and Lindsay. There, he was exposed to live Aussie rules football for the first time. When he got back to Vancouver and put his kinesiology degree to work as a personal trainer, he was surprised to learn that there was a local Australian football league. The West Coast Saints, one of four teams in the grass-roots circuit, offered him the opportunity to go from spectator to participant. That was three years ago and Hayes has spent many moments since terrorizing opponents with the Burnaby Eagles, Vancouver Cougars and Delta BayHawks. “It takes a little nerve and at the start I didn’t think I had it in me,” he recalled. “But the sport found me and I embraced it. There’s nothing like getting out there with no pads and just running into guys.” His initial hesitancy came from the notion that he might break his leg. Or shoulder. Or arm.

It is a rather rough sport, you know. “It was just a matter of getting through the first couple games and knowing I wasn’t going to break my leg every time out there,” he said. “You’re going to get your knocks and you might get punched in the face once in a while, but once you make a few great hits yourself you just want more of it. It’s kind of addictive.” Standing six-feet-tall and weighing a shade over 200 pounds, Hayes found himself in the role of ruck-rover, perhaps the roughest job in Aussie rules football. “I’m the guy in the middle of the field who hits people and tries to get that ball out on the wings to have a more free-flowing game,” he explained. “I’m where a lot of bodies are, so if I don’t have the ball I’m laying out hits and if I do have the ball I’m getting hit.” From the start, Hayes earned a reputation as a tenacious player capable of dishing out bone-jarring knocks. Impressed teammates recommended him as a candidate for national play, and last summer he finally got to wear that maple leaf for the first time. Hayes was selected for a Canadian squad that faced the United States in Toronto. “It’s predominantly been a lot of Ontario guys who’ve been selected for the Canadian team,” he said. “But our league is becoming stronger and stronger and they wanted to give a few B.C. players a spot on the team. I was one of nine who got that chance and it was a great experience. An eye opener because everyone really puts their body on the line.” Hayes used Toronto as a springboard to something bigger, trying out for Canada’s International Cup squad. From November to February he trained and

practiced 10 to 15 hours a week, competing against 149 men for just 30 spots. “It’s been a lot of work, with practices every week,

sometimes twice a week,” he said. “There was fitness testing and a three kilometre time trial. There’s a big commitment involved when

you want to play at the highest level.” Everything paid off when he was the fourth of nine B.C. players chosen for the

Canadian squad that will travel to Australia in August. The International Cup takes place in Sydney and Melbourne Aug. 12-27. The tournament takes place every three years and includes 27 teams on the men’s side. At Melbourne’s Blacktown Olympic Park Stadium and Sydney’s Royal Park, Hayes and company will take on the likes of China, Ireland, Fiji and Croatia. “I get to go back and see people and a country I haven’t seen in a decade,” Hayes said excitedly. “And I get to play for my country, which is something I never dreamed I could do. To put the maple leaf on my chest is an awesome feeling every time.” Hayes will be 35 years old by the time the tournament rolls around, which will make him the oldest player on the team. He’s only played for three years, but this is already his last kick at the can. For that reason, no one will be more motivated to win. “Our coach is Australian and he always says he really likes playing Canadians because it’s already in our blood to hit (with hockey). He loves our zest for the game,” Hayes said. “It’s a small league in Vancouver, so you play the same guys a lot. There’s a level of respect there that we’re not going to go after each other’s heads. At the international level I think it will be more like going after each other’s heads. But we’ll find out when we get there.” Travelling to Australia costs a lot of money, and Hayes is looking for sponsorship help. Check his website at www. tuffit.com for more information.

Cougars tussle with Tigers

Chilliwackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s midget AAA baseball Cougars

went 2-2 in weekend action, splitting a pair of double headers. Chilliwack faced the Kamloops RiverDogs on Saturday, dropping the opener 3-0 and winning the return match 11-4. A seven-run fourth inning helped pitcher Mike Rogers collect his first win of the season. A Sunday double-

header pitted the Cougars against the South Okanagan Tigers. The locals dropped the opener 7-1, pulling out a 5-2 win in the rematch. Chilliwack got all their offence in the first two innings. Derek Riediger got the win on the mound, with Blake Peeling picking up the save.

Late fade costly for peewees Vancouver Whitecaps mascot Winger entertains a crowd at Exhibition Stadium Friday night. The Whitecap women beat the Colorado Rush 3-0 in W-League action. SUBMITTED PHOTO

Whitecaps help kick cancer Tif fany Weimer scored twice and Alysha Bonnick scored in her first W-League game with the Vancouver Whitecap women as they blanked the Colorado Rush 3-0 Friday night. The final score was a small part of the big picture, with the Whitecaps and Chilliwack FC joining forces to raise more than $2,000 towards cancer research. The game was played in front of a full house of 900-plus people at Exhibition Stadium and

the Whitecaps wore special pink jerseys which were auctioned off after the game. The jerseys alone fetched more than $1,100 and proceeds from the concession stand were also donated to the cause. Local players did their part, volunteering for game-day activities. Four U-11 teams from Chilliwack FCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sevena-side league played at halftime.

On the pitch, the Whitecaps recorded their third straight shutout and improved their overall record to 3-0, leaving them tied with Colorado for first place in the Western conference. Weimer opened the scoring late in the first half, taking a pass from Krista Kruse and sliding a sharp-angle shot just inside the right goal-post. At the 64 minute

mark, speedster Jen Stoltenberg made some nice moves in the box and set up Bonnick, who buried her shot from five yards out. Weimer wrapped up the scoring with 20 minutes remaining, scoring on a penalty kick after she was taken down in the box. The Caps hit the road for three straight in California.

Save you

An early lead disappeared late as the peewee baseball Cougars dropped a 14-10 decision to Coquitlam on Thursday. Tyson Loewen started on the mound and pitched well, helped by a highlight reel catch by Shane Rutley in center field. Chilliwackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bats

generated seven runs in the opening innings off singles by Colin Kellington, Tyson Loewen, Bailey Whitehouse, Jack MacIssac and Seth Tagle. Kai Soltys added a perfect bunt and Gabe Olivares a sweet triple to put the Cougars up 7-2 through two

innings. But the Coquitlam offence roared to life, scoring 12 runs over the next three innings to overtake the Cougars. The game was called after six innings due to darkness, denying Chilliwack the chance to stage a comeback of their own.

Bantam Cougars rough up Reds The Bantam AA Cougars continued their winning ways this weekend, beating the North Delta Cubs 7-4 and the CoquitlamMoody Reds 8-2. Starting pitcher Konnar MacDonald was stellar against the Cubs, allowing six hits and just one run through four innings. Zac Middleton picked up the save. Center fielder Ryan Petkau led the offence, going three for three with two runs scored. Josh Anderson went two for three with

two doubles and two RBIâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. MacDonald helped his cause by going a perfect three for three at the dish with three runs scored. Starting pitcher Tony Pharand was on fire against the Reds on Sunday, allowing just two runs and five hits in a complete game win. Pharand got stronger as the game went on, fanning five Reds in the final four innings. Petkau helped defensively with two spectacular catches

in the outfield, and Devyn Heggs turned a double play. After taking a 4-2 lead into the top of the seventh, the Chilliwack bats added four more to put the game out of reach. Offensively, Evan Kellington went three for three at the plate while Cohen Bogart went two for three and Anderson went three for four. The Cougars are 14-4-1 on the season and the team is looking forward to playoffs in June.

â&#x153;&#x17E; Obituaries LIGHTHEART John William

Fred passed away peacefully on May 19th, 2011 at the Chilliwack General Hospital at the age 92 FERRIS years. He was born and raised on the family farm near Hayter, Alberta. During WW2 Fred served in the R.C.A.F. Went into farming following the war until 1969 when he moved to Chilliwack. He will be lovingly remembered by his wife, family and friends. Celebration of life tea was held at the Birchwood on Friday May 27th, 2011.

May 1, 1954 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; May 25, 2011 Mr. John William Lightheart , late of Abbotsford, BC passed away on May 25, 2011 at the LIGHTHEART age of 57 years. John leaves to mourn his wife Myra, step-children Andrea Munro (Jason) and Derek Schween (Jaime) and three grandchildren, London, Davis, and Lauren; sisters Marlene Sterba (Lud)and thefamily, and Maureen Kormendy and her family; and birth mother Hazel Lundy and her sons. John will be deeply missed by his uncles, aunts, cousins and his many friends. John was predeceased by his parents Mac and Lena Lightheart and his nephew Bryan Kormendy. John grew up in Chilliwack, BC and graduated from high school in 1972. Music has always been a big part of Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life: during school years he played the clarinet and the accordion and at the age of 16 joined a popular local band. The Commancheros. John was a great tennis player and he graduated with a BA from UBC debt free because of his earnings as tennis instructor and the keyboard player in the band. John worked as a Correctional OfďŹ cer for 25 years at Mission Institution and was passionate about investing in the inmates. John loved to hear peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stories and to help them with their challenges. Another passion was business â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a self-described incurable entrepreneur, John was curious to ďŹ nd new ways to present old products. June 5, 1999 John did something he thought he would never do â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he got married! John and Myra loved to explore Vancouver and area in search of interesting restaurants, to hike for countless miles, and to spend time with family and friends. As Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health declined and he could no longer do those things he loved, he found great pleasure in just being with people. You are welcome to join us for a memorial service on Wednesday, June 1, 2011 at 1:00 pm at Bradner Community Hall, 5305 Bradner Road, Abbotsford.

REIMER Gerhard â&#x20AC;&#x153;Georgeâ&#x20AC;? Wilfred March 26, 1914 â&#x20AC;&#x201C; May 27, 2011 George was born on March 26, 1914, the seventh child of Abram J. and Maria (Froese) Reimer in the REIMER Mennonite village of Wiesenfeld which was founded in 1880 by his great grandfather Jacob D. Reimer in what is now the Ukraine. Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forbears willed him a rich spiritual, intellectual and material history. The mayhem of the 1917 Russian Revolution engulfed idyllic Wiesenfeld only three years after Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s birth. In 1919, at age 5, George witnessed the murder by terrorists of his grandfather Froese and Uncle Franz. Everyone ďŹ&#x201A;ed Wiesenfeld . The A. J. Reimer family sojourned in the village of Gnadenfeld in the Molotschna, where they survived the Great Famine. In 1924 the family emigrated to Canada - by train across Europe to Latvia. At Riga they embarked for England. From there they sailed across the Atlantic to Quebec City, then by train to Saskatchewan. Southeast of Humboldt they joined six other families in homesteading some rocky Saskatchewan ďŹ elds during the Great Depression. Georgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schooling ended after six years. Hard physical work dominated his life. George began a relationship with the Savior in his teens, was baptized and remained a devout and faithful follower of Jesus throughout his long

x

life. He modeled and lived his faith more than he spoke of it. George began courting Anne in Saskatchewan. After both families moved to BC the two lovers were married in the Greendale MB Church on July 31, 1938. They celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary in the same church in July 2008. George and Anne lived and raised their children Reg, Jerry, and Joan in Greendale. They were active members of Greendale MB Church from 1943 to 2005 when they moved to Menno Terrace in Abbotsford. George Reimer was an exemplary husband, father, grandfather, uncle, and in-law, as well as a ďŹ ne craftsman and farmer and a huge contributor to church and community. Honesty, generosity and faithfulness characterized George. He blessed us by staying with us a long time. In his waning days on earth he often asked his children â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is there for me to do?â&#x20AC;? His Lord will have a much better answer than we could muster! On May 16 George suffered an incident Menno Pavilion which led to pneumonia. He was admitted to the Abbotsford hospital where, after 10 difďŹ cult days, he died peacefully on May 27. George was predeceased by his wife Anne on December 30, 2008. He is survived by three children. Reg (LaDonna). Jerry (Annelisa), and Joan (Clarence) Neufeld, ďŹ ve grandchildren, seven greatgrandchildren and two step great-grandchildren.
