Strong support for early French immersion

■ C HIEFS A RE B ACK

Katie Bartel The Progress Shaz-Marie McLean would love for her 16-month-old son to be able to start French immersion when he starts kindergarten. She may get her wish. The Chilliwack school district held a consultation meeting last week asking prospective French immersion parents if they’d be interested in an early French immersion program starting in kindergarten. Currently there are 457 students attending late French immersion in the school district. That number fluctuates year to year, said superintendent Michael Audet. The meeting had approximately 60 people in attendance, including parents, staff and other interested parties. Of the parents in attendance, there was strong interest in an early French immersion program. “I would certainly be thrilled to have my son enter an early French immersion program,” said McLean, who herself was in French immersion all through school in the Continued: FRENCH/ p6

No room at UFV for more international students The Progress Without more B.C. government funding, UFV won’t be able to increase its international student enrolment, part of the job creation plan unveiled by Premier Christy Clark last week. “We’re very pleased the Premier recognizes the value independent students bring to B.C.,” UFV’s vice-president academic Eric Davis said. But last year UFV’s total student population exceeded funding - less than 50 per cent of which comes from the government - by four per cent. And it’s been that way for more than a decade. “We don’t have room to grow

international student (numbers),” Davis said. “Our buildings and classrooms are full, we’ve run out of space.” Ironically, it’s the tuition paid by international students at UFV - more than twice that paid by domestic students - that opens up classroom spaces for local students. Davis suggested UFV has a “very strong case” for more government funding because it serves “the fastest growing region” in B.C. The physical capacity of B.C.’s universities to handle the 50 per cent increase in international students over the next four years is also a concern of the B.C. Research Universities’ Council. B.C.’s current international student population of 94,000 - 850 of

whom are enrolled at UFV - has led to the creation of 22,000 jobs and contributed $1.25 billion to the B.C. economy, according to a government news release. Each 10 per cent increase in international students equals 1,800 new jobs and a $100-million boost to the provincial Gross Domestic Product, according to the release. Earlier this year, UFV president Mark Evered told the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce that each international student, most of whom attend classes at the Abbotsford campus, spends about $40,000 a year, $13,000 on tuition and the rest on accommodation, food, clothing, cars and family visits. “Let’s be frank, these are not poor students,” he said.

Programs for international students are being developed for UFV’s new $40-million campus in Chilliwack, he said, which is still under construction. Davis said UFV’s mandate is to serve local needs first, so no domestic students are displaced by international students. “They bring a huge kick to the economy,” he agreed, and enhance the learning experience at UFV. “We want our students to be global citizens,” he said. “If they don’t go abroad, we’ll bring the abroad to them.” Many international students remain in B.C., he added, and start up their own businesses, which creates jobs and boosts immigration numbers needed as the “boomer” generation retires.

The Premier’s “Canada Starts Here” job plan focuses on B.C.’s proximity to expanding markets in China and India, increasing capacity of provincial ports and decreasing the time it takes businesses wanting to invest in natural resource development. It also includes a $3-million boost to the $30-million small business venture capital tax credit to attract new investors, and extending a $31-million apprenticeship tax credit program for another three years to give employers more time to hire and train skilled workers. “We are building on our position of strength and never has this been more important than now, given the global economic uncertainty we are facing,” Clark said. rfreeman@theprogress.com

Homeless report calls for more government funding Robert Freeman The Progress Homelessness has decreased in Abbotsford and Mission, but increased in Chilliwack, AgassizHarrison and Hope, according to a final report of the 2011 Fraser Valley Regional District Homelessness Survey. “That’s something we can’t explain at this point,” Ron Wyk, the survey’s co-ordinator, said about the anomaly. But one “possible factor” suggested by the report may be a stricter crime prevention strategy in Abbotsford and a city bylaw

that prevents homeless camps from being erected and “taking root.” Treating homelessness as a crime issue may have pushed the homeless eastward, the report suggested. Drug addiction and mental health issues are significant factors in the number of “chronicallyhomeless,” Wyk said, and the B.C. government needs to continue to work with regional and local governments to respond to that challenge. “Progress has been made, but challenges are remaining,” he said.

The number of homeless in Chilliwack increased to 111 from the 98 counted in a similar 2008 survey, from 12 to 20 in AgassizHarrison, and from 20 to 43 in Hope, a 115 per cent increase. The count in Abbotsford dropped from 235 to 117 in 2011, and Mission’s dropped from 100 to 54. A total 345 homeless were counted in the survey conducted in March, 2011, compared to 465 counted in the 2008 survey and 411 in 2004. Among the survey’s other findings are: - homelessness is a result of

poverty, unaffordable rental rates, family breakdown, mental health issues and drug addiction; - nearly two-thirds are homeless for one year or longer; - more women sought shelter in transition houses in 2011, rising to 34 from the 21 in 2008; - more women were homeless in 2011, jumping to 45 percent from 32 percent in 2008; - addiction was reported by 37 percent and mental health issues by 20 per cent; - the majority of survey respondents (66 percent) came from outside the region. The report cited the disman-

Ag tour shows Chillwack’s future Greg Knill The Progress Chilliwack’s agricultural diversity was centre stage at a day-long tour last week, sponsored by the Chilliwack Agricultural Commission and Chilliwack Economic Partners (CEPCO). The tour, now in its 10th year, is aimed at highlighting the impact agriculture still has on the community, despite Chilliwack’s continued urbanization. Agriculture accounts for 29 per cent of the local economic activity, said Ag Commission chair Walter Dyck before the two buses departed Friday morning. Agreed Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz as she addressed the group during a lunch stop: “This is our bread and butter.” This year’s tour not only highlighted that activity, but also demonstrated the range of farming operations in the city. First stop was a farm near Rosedale that is tapping into the specialty chicken and duck market. V&H Joint Ventures, operated by Ken Huttema and Rob Vane, is producing Silkie chickens and a smaller number of broiler ducks. The Silkie chickens have a distinctive bluish skin colour and are popular in Asian cooking. Down the road at Westcoast Holsteins, Jeff Kooyman was getting ready for the most important dairy show of the year. Westcoast Holsteins is an offshoot of the Kooyman’s 3,000-head dairy operation across the highway, but is focusing on breeding and elite showing. Although Kooyman jokingly referred the 25-head operation as a hobby, the intent is to

tling of federal housing policy as leading to a “complete halt” in construction of affordable housing and shifting of the financial burden onto municipalities. “Without a national housing policy, Canadians who find themselves homeless are at the mercy of a system that is ad hoc, piecemeal and not proactive,” the report states. However, local initiatives like housing outreach, street nurses, improved shelter programs, and housing linked to supportive services helped reduce the overall number of homeless in the region. rfreeman@theprogress.com twitter.com/paperboy2

B&E suspect doesn’t get far A 34-year-old Langley man was nabbed as a suspect soon after the break-in of a Chilliwack business early Sunday morning. Police said a security guard at the business located in the 8000-block Evans Road saw a hole in a chain link fence just after midnight, and was writing up a report when he saw a male leaving the compound. The guard attempted to stop the suspect, but the intruder was able to make it to his vehicle and flee the scene. The guard called police, and a member of the Fraser Valley Traffic Services was in the area and intercepted the suspect vehicle about 400 meters from the scene. The suspect was taken into custody and charged with break-and-enter. The suspect unidentified by police was released on a promise to appear later in court. “This is a good example of the coordinated effort that goes into catching property thieves,” RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said. “The RCMP work hard to try and reduce the amount of property crime in the area, and it is a priority to us,” she said.

improve the herd for genetic purposes and future embryo sales. They’ll be taking 19 cows to show at the World Dairy Expo in Wisconsin next month, where last year they sold a cow for $200,000. At Little Mountain Greenhouses, Marc and Dianne Shane are taking a decidedly local approach. The couple purchased the operation six years ago and have since focused on the local market. Eightyfive per cent of the products Little Mountain grows are sold locally. That includes hanging baskets that are nursed from tiny slips to dramatic hanging

displays. Currently, the greenhouse is getting thousands of poinsettias ready for the local Christmas market. At JMC Farms, the tour group heard how Marc Dalton, a recent graduate of Sardis Secondary, earned a business degree in agriculture and has since joined with his brother to purchase the family farm. They’ve recently replaced their Holstein cows with Jerseys and expanded the operation to 80 from 20 cows. If there was an unofficial theme at this year’s tour, it was youth. The group included staff and students from Sardis

Secondary and Unity Christian School. They were joined by University of the Fraser Valley president Dr. Mark Evered, and Larry Stinson, chair of the UFV Board of Governors. Stinson, speaking to the group during lunch, stressed the important role the university can play in shaping agricultural research and development in B.C. That topic was picked up by Tom Baumann who talked about efforts to establish the Pacific Berry Research Centre. “This is where it’s at when it comes to berries,” said Baumann.

Windstorm leaves thousands without power High winds and falling trees on Sunday morning knocked out the power to more than 10,000 homes across the Fraser Valley. BC Hydro crews were still at it on Monday, restoring electricity to affected customers. Several hundred residences in Chilliwack were impacted by the outages caused by the windstorm, along with those in Abbotsford, Mission, Langley and Surrey. More rain is expected Tuesday but winds are not expected to be a strong.

Clodhoppers Keynote Presenters:

CHRIS EMERY & LARRY FINNSON Chris Emery and Larry Finnson are two of Canada’s great entrepreneurs. As the creators of Clodhoppers candy they took Chris’ grandma’s recipe and developed it into a multi-million dollar business. Their youthful and energetic style and neversay-die attitude led Clodhoppers to a point where it was ranked amongst the top candy brands in Canada according to A.C. Nielsen’s data.

The Rosedale and Yarrow communities are getting a first walk through of their new schools. Sort of. KMBR Architects Planners Inc. recently uploaded a three-dimensional, fly through animation of both schools, giving parents, students and staff an advanced, bird’s-eye view of what their schools will be like before they’re even open. Animation is a way for architects to explain the vision in a way that everybody can understand and visualize, said Greg Erickson, KMBR associate, which designed both facilities. “Architects can typically think in the third dimension, but for most people, it’s not readily apparent. Not a lot of people, when they’re looking at a [two-dimensional] floor plan would have a good feel for the size, the volume of space, or how it’s going to feel. “But now, we can immediately show them what we’re talking about.” The animation, uses Building Information Modeling (BIM) software to create a detailed, three-dimensional view of the outside and inside of the two new facilities. The animation flies over the parking lots and around the sports fields. It shows the outdoor teaching spaces at Yarrow elementary and the wood beam structures at the front entrance of Rosedale traditional. It even features Chilliwack’s mountains and the trees encasing both properties. That, Erickson said, is a result of the extensive research and site surveying done before even putting “pen to paper” to ensure the animated product bears as much resemblance to the actual site as can be. Inside, you will glide pass students, through the lobby, down hallways. You will peer through the windows into the gymnasiums. You will see detailing in the floor for Rosedale, and wood accents on the walls for both schools. You will go up the stairs, you will look out the windows onto the school grounds, and you will look down at an overview of the first

Shining a purple light on violence Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Domestic violence is completely unacceptable in Chilliwack — or anywhere else. That’s the key message of the Purple Light Nights campaign, kicking off next week. “We want everyone to put a purple light up in their homes or businesses to say that domestic violence has no place in our community,” said Beverly Coles, coordinator of the Specialized Victim Assistance program at Chilliwack Community Services. Purple Light Nights started in Washington State about four years ago as a colourful and effective way to shed light on the struggle against family violence. “We were the first in Canada to join the effort, and we brought Purple Light Nights across the border to Chilliwack and beyond,” Coles said. The campaign is now held here every October during Domestic Violence Awareness month. It’s the third year of the local effort by staff from CCS Specialized Victim Assistance and the Ann Davis Transition Society. “We were actually running out of bulbs last year,” said Shelley Bolan, manager of the transition house for Ann Davis Transition Services. “We had to order more.” Last year there were 350 purple light bulbs available, and this year that number has increased to 500 to make sure there are enough for everyone. “This says to me that people in Chilliwack are getting it,” Bolan added. “They want to be part of this community-wide statement.” As a result of generous donations received by local organizers in 2010, purple light bulbs are again being made

available at several locations in Chilliwack. Purple was chosen to acknowledge the devastating impact of domestic violence, remembering and honouring survivors and those who lost their lives to it. From Oct. 1 to Oct. 31, purple lights will also be a beacon of hope. Statistics show that half of Canadian women suffered an incident of physical or sexual violence during their adult lives, and only one in five victims actually reports it. “Your light will support those who have survived domestic violence and help give hope to those still living with abuse,” said April Goertzen, a Chilliwack social worker. Domestic violence is known to cross all social, economic and cultural boundaries. “Every woman has the right to live free from violence and abuse in her home, workplace and community,” she said.

The Chilliwack Progress Tuesday, September 27, 2011

A day after global stock markets took a stomach-churning drop last week, Robert Chambers was maintaining his perspective. He talks about the bigger picture, how the headlines and newscasts can’t replace careful planning and smart investing. Chambers is a financial advisor with Edward Jones in Chilliwack. And, yes, while the recent market volatility has meant a few more phone calls, Chambers takes the long view. With charts and spreadsheets at the ready, he offers measured assurance about recovery and opportunity. Chambers’ ability to take the long view might have something to do with his background. Chambers is a fifth-generation

resident – a history he’s proud of. Walk into his Vedder Road office and you’ll find a trove of photographs and artifacts that catalogue his family’s history in the area. “For as long as there’s been a Vedder Road,” he says with a smile, “one of my family has had a business on it.” Working in a world characterized by dramatic highs and lows, that stability helps ground him. At the end of the day, he explains, his job is not about the money, it’s about the people. “You manage people’s emotions,” he says. “You manage their expectations.” Chambers describes his business as a conservative retirement and wealth management

firm. His goal is to help people manage their finances in a way that leaves them comfortable and secure. Doing that successfully means getting to know people and earning their confidence. “You need to talk to people and find out what their needs are.” That’s the part of the job Chambers loves, meeting people and helping them understand how they can help themselves. “We educate. We don’t sell,” he says. If that education starts early it can have huge financial implications in the long term, he says. But even decisions later and life can have an impact if they are done wisely. Chambers counts on his own

With an extensive background in Personal and Commercial Insurance Sales and Marketing, I know what it takes to market products to the right people to achieve a quick sale and for top dollar. I love working with people and seeing my clients meet their Real Estate Goals is my main focus!

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.

of the yard and any special features. The MLS allows Realtors to feed in a buyers’ basic needs and match them up to the listings of all area Realtors. When you list your home, you are employing not only the listing Realtor to market your home, but hundreds of the Realtors’ colleagues who will work cooperatively to get your property sold as quickly as possible. If you have been house-hunting on your own, you may have been relying on real estate ads or driving through your favourite neighbourhoods in search of ‘For Sale’ signs. A good Realtor can save you time and gasoline by making your search easier and more efficient, showing you only the homes that will actually fit your needs. Realtors learn about homes as they go on the market, and the best values may sell before they are ever advertised! A Realtor who has seen the homes available in the area can save you time and effort. By using the Multiple Listing Service a Realtor can also show you his or her company’s listings, as well as those of any other firm. The Realtor can also give you any information you need about nearby public transportation, schools, shopping, and recreational facilities. When you find a Realtor with whom you feel comfortable, you should work exclusively with that person. Your loyalty will give the Realtor great incentive to create the perfect match between you and a new house, or you and a qualified buyer.

Real estate transactions are complex in which innumerable snags can occur. A Realtor is an invaluable asset to your venture if you are in the market for a house or ready to sell your home. When you find a Realtor with whom you feel confident, it is good to enter into a committed working relationship with that person. Concentrating your search for a home or finding a buyer for your home with one Realtor, will allow the Realtor to become totally familiar with your needs, desires, and financial capacities. Maintaining loyalty to the Realtor of your choice will serve you more than scattering your attention among several agents. When a Realtor feels your commitment, he or she will devote great energy to finding the right home or buyer for you. Are you worried that having one Realtor may limit your capacity to find the perfect home or sell your home for top dollar? Many people assume that only the Realtor listed on the for sale sign can handle the transaction. The fact is any Realtor can sell your property. In the last decade the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) has revolutionized the way real estate is sold all over the country. When listing your home, a Realtor enters the pertinent information about your property into a computerized inventory bank. Having your home placed on the Multiple Listing Service provides the most effective advertising available because all Realtors have immediate access to information such as the price, location, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as the size

Predators online The story of Robert Kleisinger is a chilling reminder for all parents of the predators that lurk online. It also serves as encouragement – that due diligence can result in rescuing a youngster from a highly dangerous situation, and might even result in putting one of these ghouls in prison. Kudos to Kleisinger, and to the Abbotsford Police for calling attention to his actions by officially commending him. Kleisinger’s attention was alerted when he saw a photo of what appeared to be adult man communicating online with his 15-year-old stepdaughter. The stepfather set up a monitoring program on her computer, and after gathering evidence, he went to police. As an investigating officer and Kleisinger continued to monitor the conversations, it became apparent the man was grooming the young teen for a sexual relationship. Reise and the girl not only communicated online, but often met in person. He bought her gifts, such as a bicycle and an iPod, while promising other presents, including a puppy, a cruise when she turned 16, a cellphone and concert tickets. It was also discovered he had a lengthy criminal history involving property crimes and theft in Canada and the U.S. Ultimately, the investigation led to the laying of charges, and eventual sentencing in April of Jason (Booda) Reise, 35, for sexual interference and communicating via a computer to lure a child under 16. He was then handed over to American authorities for parole violations in the States. A predator has been put behind bars, for a considerable time. All parents must pay heed to this case, for many more like it exist. There are a host of online creeps out there, waiting to prey on young teens. Often, all that stands between potential victims and their hunters is an attentive, communicative parent. ~ Black Press

La Nina to make an unwelcome return With the weather phenomenon La Nina expected to gather strength this winter, we could be facing the same frustrating long, cold, wet spring in 2012 that occurred this year. “La Nina came in Januar y, February, March and carried on (more or less) until July,” said David Phillips, senior climatologist with the Meteorological Ser vice of Canada. “The best indications are showing that the weather on the west coast will be somewhere between this past year and two winters ago. So we expect the weather to be neutral on the west coast to the end of the year.” But getting into winter, Phillips forecast that by January it could be colder than normal. The last two winters were ones of extremes. In 2009/2010, we had a strong El Nino when it was warm and dry with such a remark-

able lack of snow that it had to be trucked in from Manning Park for the Winter Olympics. In fact, January and February were the mildest ever recorded. “It was warmer and dr yer with very little snow,” said Phillips. “Vancouver had about 28 per cent of regular snowfall that year and temperatures were record warm.” Margaret Fast track 12 EVANS months and La Nina had taken over. February 2011 produced record lows with strong outflow winds. On the 25th of that month those winds pushed temperatures down in the Chilliwack area to -22oC. Snowfall was 161.8 per cent above normal. So, more of the same?

“If La Nina does not progress, it might be more like the previous winter of 2010,” explained Phillips. “But the problem this past winter was that La Nina came late and lasted well into spring. It actually didn’t go away. The Pacific Ocean water temperature was warmer but the atmospheric temperature was cooler. Last year snowfall was triple that of the previous year. Temperatures were cooler. My sense is with La Nina, if it does come back, it will be moderate.” With the lingering La Nina, summer this year didn’t come until August. “For the eleventh consecutive year, mean temperatures for August were above normal, a trend never previously having occurred since Chilliwack records started in 1895,” said Roger Pannett, Chilliwack’s volunteer weather observer for Environment

Canada. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) stated on its website that La Nina conditions actually returned in August due to the strengthening of negative sea surface temperatures across the eastern half of the equatorial Pacific Ocean. The cool water changes the air temperature above it which changes air pressure, which changes wind patterns, which changes weather. NOAA’s expectation is that La Nina will remain weak during the fall but strengthen with an increased chance of aboveaverage precipitation across the Pacific Northwest later in winter. Sea surface temperatures in the tropical Pacific Ocean are monitored by data buoys and satellites. NOAA operates a network of 70 buoys along the equatorial Pacific that measure sea surface

temperature, currents and winds in the equatorial band. That data is added to information collected by polar orbiting environmental satellites and all the combined data is available to researchers and forecasters around the world in real time. While La Nina is driven by Pacific Ocean conditions, its impact is global. It will ramp up storms in the Atlantic basin, threaten oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, trigger severe snowstorms, and cause extreme droughts such as the ongoing severe conditions in Texas and south-western U.S. It causes wetter monsoons in India, torrential rains and flooding in south-east Asia, yet warm and dry conditions along the coasts of Ecuador and Peru. Given La Nina’s return, Phillips predicts that next spring’s weather could be a re-run of this year cool, wet season.

Liberals canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hide behind HST loss I am tired of reading articles by journalists who, like the BC Liberals, use the defeat of the HST as a means to confuse and scare British Columbians. Figures released by the BC Liberal Finance Ministry, and widely published in the press, suggest that the HST reversal means the provinceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total debt is expected to reach $62.3 billion in the next three years. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe anything the Liberals say about the HST, and here is why: Before the May 2009 election, the BC Liberal government said it would not impose a harmonized sales tax. Upon implementation, former

Finance Minster Colin Hansen and ex-premier Gordon Campbell deflected criticism of the HST by claiming the tax would be â&#x20AC;&#x153;revenue neutralâ&#x20AC;?; in other words, government revenue would not increase. Now, according to Finance Minister Kevin Falcon, government revenue from the HST is critical to the health of the BC economy. BC teachers are being told that the defeat of the HST means there is no extra money for the education system. We are simply asking for student learning conditions to be restored to previous levels: in 2002, the Liberals illegally stripped our contract of lan-

guage that limited the number of students, as well as the number of special needs students, in a class. We are also asking for a reasonable salary increase, with the expectation that our salary will be in line with the majority of our colleagues across the country. By hiding behind claims of an increased deficit, the BC Liberals are hoping to dupe the public. If we buy into the Liberalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s deceitful rhetoric, we allow them to undermine the funding of our social programs, all the time claiming to â&#x20AC;&#x153;put families firstâ&#x20AC;?.

statements. BC needs new dollars, but how are we going to get them if we simply stand back and watch the world go by as Mr. Dix and Mr. Cummins seem to be suggesting in their criticism of the Premierâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jobs plan? The only way we can bring new dollars into the province is by opening up our doors to greater trade with the rapidly expanding AsiaPacific markets. After all, the best defence of

jobs in our economy is a strong offense that aggressively markets and then delivers our products and services to the world. So, if the economy is the engine and BC is the car, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m one person who is very happy that Christy Clark is in the driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seat, with her foot the economic accelerator, while Mr. Dix and Mr. Cummins are sitting in the back seat where they belong. Brian Bonney

British Columbia is poised to be economic leader Listening to Adrian Dixâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finance critic, Bruce Ralston, on a radio call-in show this week, as he tried to explain why the NDP oppose Premier Christy Clarkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s investment in the Prince Rupert port expansion and the Kitimat LNG plant, was almost farcical. Basically, the NDPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s argument was that we would be better off paying for people to go to school. OK, so let me get this straight: the NDPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s jobs plan is to spend millions upon millions of taxpayer dollars to educate people for jobs that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist, while simultaneously opposing tax cuts and investments in projects that would actually create jobs that

people could actually train for. Way to go Mr. Dix, you must have stayed up all night coming up with that plan. Like a lot of British Columbians, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t miss the days of endless deficits, special-interest corruption and unemployment that Mr. Dixâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last tenure in government produced. And it looks like heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not changed one bit since then. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s finding new and exciting ways to send jobs out of the province, like taxing the pants off people and small businesses, or whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;fresh ideasâ&#x20AC;? like taking the forestry industry back to the 1950â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and trying to compete with paper and product manufacturers in

the global market, clearly Mr. Dix just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get it. The NDP were not kicked out of office in 2001 because the people were bored. They were kicked out because they just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see past their own noses and make decisions only in the favour of special interests, not the peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest. British Columbia is poised to be a leading economy in the 21st century. Premier Christy Clark gets that fact while Mr. Dix is clearly attempting to capture our hearts and minds by opposing investments in jobs for BC. Perhaps the NDP is the one in need of an education.

While NDP leader Adrian Dix talks off the top of his head about training credits for job categories that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t exist here in BC, and therefore have no relevance, John Cummins haphazardly flips and flops his way across the province leaving a trail of contradictory policies and

A greenhouse fire in east Chilliwack Saturday morning caused extensive damage to a mechanical boiler room, but no damage to the greenhouse itself or the flower stock. “The fire was spotted by the owner of the property after hearing popping sounds outside,” Assistant Fire Chief Jeff Ullyot said. There was no one in the greenhouse at the time of the 8 a.m. fire. The mechanical room, which supplied heat to several greenhouses on the property in the 9700block McLeod Road, was fully involved when firefighters arrived. Electrical power to the business and the home was disconnected. The fire is not considered suspicious. The cause is under investigation by city fire officials and the local BC Safety Authority.

The Chilliwack

Progress Katie

Bartel 604.702.5575 • kbartel@theprogress.com

Getting an early taste of academic lifestyle Katie Bartel The Progress Jeremy Goh could very well be Chilliwack’s version of Doogie Howser. He hasn’t finished high school yet, but has already finished a semester of university. This summer, Goh was enrolled at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Penn taking first-year university courses. Carnegie Mellon offers a precollege program for high school students over 16 during the summer semester. Through the program, secondary school students take first-year, transferable, credit courses with university students. For six weeks, Goh lived in a “cockroach-infested” dorm room; crammed for exams; studied until three or four in the morning; sat through long lectures; participated in labs; completed research reports; and for a little extra cash, partook in university research studies. “I got the full college experience,” said Goh, a Grade 12 Sardis secondary student. Goh has wanted to become a pediatric neurosurgeon ever since reading Gifted Hands by Dr. Ben Carson when he was seven years old. Dr. Carson attended John Hopkins University, which is famed for its medicine program. Goh wants to follow in the doctor’s footsteps. He plans on attending a postsecondary institution in the United States next year, preferably the University of Pennsylvania, where he wants to complete a double major in business and biology, and then go into medicine at John Hopkins University. Carnegie Mellon was a way for him to get a leg up on other prospective students. “It’s so competitive in the States; you have to do everything you can to set yourself apart from other students and to show that you’re interested in expanding your education,” he said. At Carnegie Mellon, Goh took

modern biology, modern biology lab, and science and science fiction. He worked with proteins in cells, learned how to cut DNA, and how to insert it with plasma. “This is stuff you see on TV,” he said. “I was, like, am I actually doing this? This wasn’t Goh’s first university experience, though. Last year he was enrolled in two classes at the University of the Fraser Valley through the concurrent studies program, which is a partnership between UFV and secondary

schools in the Fraser Valley that allow top academic students to take university courses while still attending high school. He is currently enrolled in his third class at UFV. It’s all part of preparing himself for full-time university, he said. Some may think him crazy for cramming even more into his Grade 12 year with the UFV courses, and for giving up the dog days of summer for more school at Carnegie Mellon, but higher learning does sometimes have perks beyond further education.

And sometimes those perks include the Batmobile. Halfway through his courses at Carnegie Mellon, Goh learned that Batman was filming on campus. The Mellon Institute, where the biology lab is located, was being used as the jail for Gotham City. “I saw Christian Bale and the Batmobile!” exclaimed Goh, who was given a special access lanyard to get to his classes. “It was really interesting to finish a lab and walk out and see actor hobos and Gotham police hanging around.”

MUSICWORX AUDIO VIDEO

“Musicworx AVU and the Chilliwack Chiefs – it’s win/win.”

U N L I M I T E D

Seven years ago when we built Prospera Center, we approached Musicworx AVU to help us design the sound and video systems for our locker room and coaching office. They did a phenomenal job – and put in a huge amount of unpaid time to help get us going and made sure we had the best sounding room in the league which the guys really appreciated!

Making Customers for Life

When we moved to Langley the following year, Jim came out in his own time to help set the system up because that’s the kind of guy he is and that’s the way Musicworx does business in this community – as a partner. Now the Chiefs are back in Chilliwack – and I didn’t think twice about calling Jim and the team from Musicworx again – it was a no-brainer. It’s a perfect partnership - they take care of the electronics and I concentrate on winning hockey games. Go Chiefs Go!

- Harvey Smyl – Head Coach and General Manager, Chilliwack Chiefs 9/11T_MW27

Goh admits the experience was hard work, but said it was also invaluable. “I had two finals in one day, a test every week, months of work that had to be done in only six weeks, I was staying up until three or four in the morning, studying like crazy,” he said. “But as hard as it was, it was still a great experience. “I got a really good experience in what college is going to be like.”

Turning on your furnace for the first time after many months has some important considerations to go along with it.

Heating your home By Maggie Calloway As reluctant as we are to even think of the cold damp days and months ahead, some action and attention to detail now while the weather is relatively mild could save you big problems and lots of money if things go pear-shaped with your furnace in the middle of winter.

A major reno doesn’t have to be scary A 40-year-old home in Delta gets an amazing renovation from the My House Design/ Build Team. By Maggie Calloway This couple bought the house with the intention of renovating right from the start. They had lived in the area and wanted to stay, and their kids had left the nest but live down the street with the grandchildren. They felt comfortable in

the neighbourhood; they fit in. So what to do? What is the next step? Enter the brilliant My House Design/Build Team, who transformed this 40-year-old Lindal Cedar Home with sympathetic grace and made it into a home the owners will stay in for the rest of their days. Like many people, this couple bought the house because they were attracted to the neighbourhood, the mature trees in the backyard and the high cedar ceilings in the house. But the reality was the house just didn’t work for the way we live today. Forty years ago, design was much different; we didn’t have great rooms and open plan living.

Rooms were smaller, with assigned uses and closed-off with walls. The bones of this house were great but it needed a fresh breath of air. My House Design was contracted in the summer of 2010 and started the design process, applied for variance, and permits. They started construction the winter of the same year. Because this was a total renovation, the couple moved into an apartment for the duration. “We did the roofing prior to the weather getting bad then spent the rest of the winter working on the interior,” says Graeme Huguet, Managing Director of My House Design.

Lurking under your home is something you would love to put out of your mind but you know you have to deal with it. Your damp crawlspace or basement is calling you. The problem is while you are ignoring this space, unpleasant things could be going on. The Lower Mainland is a rain forest, and as beautiful as it is, if we do not control moisture in this space, nasty things like mold thriving and spreading by producing millions of airborne spores could be at work. Frightening rot and decay occur in damp environments, which could cause structural damage if left unchecked. The natural airflow in a house is from bottom to top, so moist air and other nasties are sucked up into the living areas, which could create a very unhealthy environment for people and pets.

My House Design/Build a one-stop-shop for all your renovation needs “ from page.17 “It was very important to this couple that the newly designed home work not just for themselves but work when the kids and grandkids come over, which they do all the time. This is a close-knit family.” First the team upgraded the plant. The original heating system was electric, which was changed over to forced air along with a heat pump. This allowed the family to have heat and air conditioning efficiently at low cost. Energy-efficient gas fireplaces were installed and a lot of care was taken to include build-green concepts into the home. The ceiling was insulated from the top by taking off the existing roof, insulated using foam which created a higher R value, and then a new roof was installed. This kept the interior cedar ceiling, which first attracted the home owners to the house, intact. Removing the roof allowed the team to install pot lighting, which had a huge impact on the finished space. “We changed all the windows and doors; they are all high-efficiency, EnergyStar rated. All the windows have a type of glass which keeps the heat inside in the winter and the heat out in the summer,” Huguet says. “We added energy-efficient skylights to add more light. Because we took everything down to the studs, we were able to insulate all the walls and insulate the crawlspace. The hot water is an on-demand system which is also very efficient.” An addition was added to the front of the house to give more space to the great room and the ability to create a covered entranceway but care was taken to make it seamless. This addition is only six feet long but really made a difference to both the great room and the look of the exterior. There are three bedrooms upstairs; the

house is a split level, with an en-suite for the master and a walk-in closet. Downstairs there is a room which could be a bedroom but is used as a hair salon, a laundry room and another full bathroom. The gem of the downstairs is a wonderful family room/media room with a fireplace, a library area and a big television. “Before we start any renovation, including this one, we do a full energy audit to show the homeowner where they are losing energy,” says Huguet. “Another reason is we want the homeowners to qualify for both federal and provincial grants. Once the renovation is complete we do another audit which will show the difference in efficiency. This client received $3,000 in grant incentives.” My House Design is pretty well one-stop-shopping; 85 per cent of every project is done in-house from design to permits to build to interior design. There is a great advantage to this, as all of the colleagues are constantly in touch with each other regarding ordering materials, scheduling and the multitude of details which go into what is a complicated process. There are no delays waiting for an outside trade to complete their part of the build. The before and after photos show what an amazing home was created for this wonderful family; a home they will certainly enjoy for many years to come.

A Delta home got an incredible upgrade from the people at My House Design/ Build. Changes include energy-efficient gas fireplaces and pot lights in the cedar ceiling. Submitted photos. After photos by Keith Henderson

Furnace safety important “ from page.17 with his brother in A.D.W. Mainland Heat & Air Conditioning, is an expert on heating and cooling. Twenty-seven years of experience means there is not a lot Williams doesn’t know. The first step depends on how old your furnace is. If it’s less than 10 years old, “(you) can take a chance and turn the furnace on because they have a lot of the newer technology and they don’t use much service,” Williams says. “If the furnace is over 10 years old (you) should get a licensed gas fitter to come in for a full service check.” He says they should check several things before giving you the go-ahead. “They should check the heat exchanger, the motor, the amperage draw, a clocking to make sure it’s burning correctly and they should test with a monometer to see if the pressure going to the burner is correct,” Williams says. “The biggest thing is to check for cracks in the heat exchanger because over time metal expands and contracts with heat and eventually it breaks.” The biggest problem with a cracked heat

PRODUCTS ❱❱ QUALIFIED TRADES ❱❱ EXPERT ADVICE ❱❱

exchanger is that it can release carbon monoxide into the house. “I would say out of twenty furnaces over 20 years old, five of them will have cracks,” Williams says. “If your family suffers from chronic flu-like symptoms or constant tiredness while at home and they feel better when they are away from the home, check the carbon monoxide levels in the home immediately; your family may be being poisoned.” Williams also says a furnace over 20 years old is only 50 per cent efficient. One has to think about replacing the unit if $50 out of every $100 you send to the natural gas provider is literally not providing any comfort to the family. “Right now the federal government has a grant program called EcoEnergy and the provincial government’s program LiveSmart,” Williams says. “Just by changing your old furnace to a high efficiency (one) you will get $1,390 back ... The average cost of putting in a high efficiency furnace is $4,700 so you are only looking at around $3,300. If you are now losing 50 per cent on the dollar with your old furnace it doesn’t take long to pay for a new safe, efficient one.” Sales Director: Lisa Farquharson • 604-575-5364 • lisaf@bcclassified.com Editor: Kerry Vital 604-575-5346 • editor@newlocalhome.com Writer: Maggie Calloway maggiec@blackpress.ca Online Advertising • Black Press National Sales • 604-575-5826 Contributing photographers • Martin Knowles, www.mkphotomedia.com; Rob Newell, www.robnewellphotography.ca RenoNation is published by Black Press Group Ltd., (Suite 309 - 5460 152 Street, Surrey, B.C.

Green ways to clean up leaves Every fall homeowners are faced with cascades of leaves falling from the sky. Amid this rainbow of autumn activity, some people still have "green" on their minds -- as in eco-friendly ways they can embark on fall clean-up. Removing leaves from the lawn and yard is a task that few people relish. It can often mean hours spent gathering leaves and then finding ways to dispose of them. Some homeowners stack leaves at the curb in bins and bags. Others torch them in a huge bonfire. Still others scatter them to the street with a gas-powered blower. While these methods may be fast or efficient in their own ways, they are not the most environmentally friendly ways to handle leaf removal. There are some other tactics you can take. Instead of thinking about ways to remove leaves, a greener idea is to think of ways to repurpose leaves. Even though they've passed their prime on the limbs of trees, fallen leaves can be an essential part of the ecosystem after they've fallen. Much about mulch: Fallen leaves can make an ideal mulch, helping to deliver nutrients to the soil during the stark, winter months. Placing shredded leaves around the base of shrubbery and trees can help insulate the root systems and nourish them. Decomposing leaves also provide food to soil insects, including earthworms. 'Leaf ' them alone: Unless the lawn is completely inundated with leaves, it's alright to leave some behind. Animals preparing their winter nests or hibernation can collect leaves and use them to insulate their cozy retreats. Leaves can

act as fertilizer to the lawn and also food sources to insects. Get composting: Savvy homeowners who have a compost pile to create "black gold" for their vegetables and flowers can add fallen leaves to the pile as part of the secret recipe to wonderful fertilizer. Rake for health: Leaf blowers may make fast work of gathering leaves to one area, but they are noisy, smelly and burn gasoline unnecessarily. Instead, look to the old-fashioned garden rake. A person won't need to visit the gym that day because raking can burn hundreds of calories in an hour and work the muscles in the arms and shoulders effectively. For those prone to blisters, wear gloves and take frequent breaks. Ideal insulation: Leaves can insulate more than chipmunk nests. Rake some into bags to place around the perimeter of the home's foundation for a little extra weatherproofing when it's cold. Surround outdoor garden containers to insulate the soil of delicate plants that will overwinter outside or in the garage. Art projects: Although you can't use all of the leaves that fall from trees, children and adults can make home decor or art projects with some of the best of the bunch. String leaves for autumn decorating garlands on mailboxes or around doors. Press leaves between waxed paper and iron lightly to make keepsakes. The possibilities for green uses to autumn leaves are many. This fall homeowners can be environmentally conscious in their leaf clean-up.

By Maggie Calloway As we enjoy the last of the summer weather, we know what’s coming around the corner. The price we pay for living in this beautiful, lush, green paradise is ... rain, rain and more rain. And, all too often the mechanism to handle this deluge, our house gutters, is just not up to the job. Now is the time to do an inspection of the

state of your gutters, clean them of debris, and make the necessary repairs. If your patch jobs of years past are starting to fail, it is probably time to bite the bullet and install new ones. If you are unsure about where your leaks are, clean the gutter.

An accreditated non-profit multi service society serving the Chilliwack community since 1928

2011 Report to the Community Our Mission: To create opportunities with people to make positive change in their lives. Ups and downs happen in everyone’s life … and we make choices along the way to compensate for that. We can either open the door wide or close it and walk away. Sometimes we don’t know what to do and just stand still— going nowhere.

A comprehensive review of existing programming and a thorough interview process with clients and stakeholders culminated in a draft document for Board and staff review. While the road we take may change, the destination itself hasn’t.

The open doors at Chilliwack Community Services lead to over 40 different programs for people of all ages and cultures. Programs that are designed to strengthen and empower an individual or family to make a choice —the right choice. To help people position for a brighter tomorrow.

During 2010-2011, CCS Board and staff have participated in two particular community wide initiatives that will have significant impact on our program delivery and operations:

In that same context, the CCS Board of Directors helps to position the society for a healthy tomorrow too. To be ready for opportunity when it presents itself, without losing sight of where we are and where we’ve been. CCS, like all great organizations, looks for continual improvement. During this past year, development of a strategic plan to guide us through to 2014 has been a key focus of discussion. How can we continue to be responsive to the needs of individuals, how will we face unexpected challenges, and what can we do to position the society to be ready to act on opportunities that come along?

in August. He is looking forward to building relationships and meeting many more people in the community to create a smooth transition for the upcoming year. While changes are a necessary part of an organization to meet and determine community needs, having a clear vision that keeps us focused on why we are here is imperative. Continuing our vision “to be a leading partner in helping our community be the best it can be” will be an exciting time for Chilliwack Community Services. Thank you to our front line staff who work to help program participants open new doors and move confidently into tomorrow. The compassion and generosity of individuals, service organizations and local businesses who ensure our community funded programs continue is always amazing. It is a privilege to be part of this collective effort.

Rising costs and a provincial freeze on spending, urged a careful review of internal spending and resulted in some operational changes. We wanted to confirm that our funding dollars are benefiting the community the best way possible. After twelve years of innovative leadership, Dale Cuthbertson announced his retirement effective March 31/11. The Board committed to an extensive search for a new leader, with James Challman from Alberta picking up the reins

“I learned it’s okay to say no, not right now!”

“I’m not going back to where I was!”

Anna was one of those babies that fussed at the drop of a hat. Wanting to just be a good mom, Laura was forever cuddling and soothing her new baby girl. But by the time Anna turned two, this became an exhausting and lonely daily routine … for both. Yarrow Family Place made the difference. After her first visit, Laura was hooked. Swapping stories with other moms, she slowly realized that her feelings of frustration were normal. That Anna could certainly survive not glued to her hip. That she could say “no, not right now”. It’s been five years since that first visit. With new found confidence, especially as a parent, Laura is now volunteering her time to welcome other new moms to Family Place. Playing with other children taught Anna it’s okay not to have your own way all the time—a valuable lesson for a little girl starting grade one. Anna is now a loving big sister, and patiently waits her turn for a hug from mom.

It is no surprise that Pete got in with the wrong crowd - he grew up familiar with violence and substance abuse. By age 12, he was already well known to the police. By 14, he was expelled from school and on the street. Pete drifted for about a year, couch surfing from here to there, gleaning food or money wherever he could. Until that day he got caught in a gang related assault. He was mandated to attend the REAL Program—an alternative education program for high risk youth (MCFD referral). Full of bravado and arrogance, he made it very clear he did not want to be there. Time and patience and a continuum of support revealed a very bright and naturally personable young man—a very driven young man who was on the wrong track. Pete completed Grade 12 at age 17 and now has a real job, and is determined to leave that old lifestyle far behind.

“I wasn’t the mom I wanted to be!”

“We were ready to change all we knew!”

Last spring, Christy moved to Chilliwack with her two little boys for what she hoped would be a fresh start.

Two years ago, Robert and May made a decision that would change everything their family ever knew—they moved to Canada. The opportunity for a better life could not be ignored.

But being a single mom in a new town was harder than she ever thought. Little money, no family or friends, and a two and four year old caught in the midst of the turmoil. Despite Christy’s attempt to escape a bad situation for her children, her own anger was becoming déjà vu. The day her four year old cringed when she reached over to clean up the spilled juice was the day Christy googled for help. Families First offered the support and reassurance Christy and her boys so desperately needed. Talking with other parents is helping Christy to normalize her frustrations and understand the unwanted behaviours are brought on by emotional distress and can change. Christy is now sorting out what to do next. She and her boys are making new friends in town, and learning new ways to become the happy and nurturing family she always wanted.

Even with all the planning and preparing for that big day, the culture shock was huge. Finding a job, a house to rent, a school for their teenage daughter Orange, medical care, driver’s license— the simple task of grocery shopping or catching a bus when you spoke and read only Mandarin was a struggle. An appointment with a CCS Settlement Worker put the wheels in motion. Learning to speak English was a number one priority. Rob and May began attending basic ELSA classes every morning — and practiced and practiced wherever and whenever they could. Orange was matched with a Youth Buddy at school, and soon adjusted to the Canadian way of doing things. Rob has progressed to Level 3 English and received Canadian equivalency to his Chinese Engineering degree. And all that paperwork, it’s done.

Drippy gutters Then, with the help of a spotter, flood the gutter with water. All the trouble spots will be apparent and easy to mark. To repair, dry each area completely, then dip a paintbrush into a can of roofing cement and apply a very thin layer to the leaking area. To further enforce the repair, cut a piece of metal flashing, which should be the same type of metal as the gutter to avoid corrosion, and press into the cement. It is important you then cover the metal with a further application of roofing cement, then spread out the cement to level the patch. Otherwise, your repair will impede the flow of water. Something else to keep in mind is to make sure you do your repairs when the weather forecast is for sunny weather, as your repairs need time to dry before being hit by rain. Shell Busey has some wisdom on caring for our gutters and downspouts. “Almost everyone, when dealing with gutters, gets out the ladder, leans it up against the aluminum gutter, putting both the weight of the ladder and their weight on the gutter. Now you have an aluminum ladder pressed against an aluminum gutter, which could act like greased lighting,” Busey says. “The best, and safest, way is to use ladder stand-offs

which insert into the ladder then rest on the roof.” After cleaning your gutters, he suggests laying a yard stick along the inside of the gutter. “Then take a small level to make sure the gutter is sloping toward the downspout,” he says. “You will be amazed how often this is not the case.” Busey warns that standing water in a gutter can freeze during a cold spell, then thaw, and then freeze again with the next bout of cold. “This is when the seams of the gutter are blown apart. It is vital people check the slope; they can repair seam problems forever but if the slope is wrong the same thing happens again and again.” A great hint Busey passes along is to check where all the gutter repair items are manufactured. Turns out a great number of them are manufactured in the southern states where they wouldn’t recognize a rain forest. “They don’t have to deal with algae, moss or mildew down there,” Busey says. “Some of the inserts moss up to the point they don’t let water through to the gutter, it just washes over the top.” Once we have looked after our gutters we need to make sure the downspouts

are handling the flow. If there is a concern, or you are seeing signs of seepage in the basement, you may want to investigate redirecting the water away from the house and into the perimeter

drain by intercepting the flow at the bottom of the downpipe. We live in a wet climate, and the more attention we pay to handling the water, the less accumulated damage can be done.

The rainy season will be starting soon, and your gutters might not be prepared. It is best to do a thorough cleaning and checkup of your gutters and downspouts before major problems occur. Submitted photos

Add hits of colour to brighten up a dark room Creating a cozy living space isn’t hard, if you have the right accents.

50% OFF

By Maggie Calloway My home is predominantly white. White walls, white painted floors, white slip covers. The texture is in the knobby weave of the sea grass rugs and the heavy old oak dining table. The shots of colour are in the art and the dust jackets of books on the shelves of the built-in bookshelves. I love this style; it fits my personality. I hate clutter, as it makes me feel unsettled; I don’t go in for things that require dusting. Mention the word tchotchke and I freeze in place. I immediately pass on magazines as soon as I finish reading them and my clothes take up about four feet of closet space ... for both winter and summer. I somehow escaped the sentimentality gene, so I have no piles of old birthday and Christmas cards and as soon as I realize I haven’t worn or used an item I donate it. You get the picture. But the grey, damp and cold days of winter are approaching. The firewood is waiting in the shed to feed the wood stove, and the house needs a hit of cozy. It’s time to discover the best way to warm up your home without adding to the heating bill and bankrupting yourself in the process. There are very easy and frugal ways to warm up a home. Perhaps changing the covers on the sofa throw cushions to a warm red and pulling out a couple of throws to toss over the back of the sofas. Flowers for the living room and dining table can change from white to reds and oranges. Drapes, which have been taken down and cleaned over the summer, can go back up to be drawn against winter nights.

Paula Akoury, Maren Vanoene and Joyce Steven, three designers at Chinz & Company, are experts at creating cozy. They are so passionate about design and helping clients make the most of their space. They all agreed that it doesn’t take a lot to change the atmosphere; just very careful additions of colour to warm the room. In addition to adding hits of colour, they suggest warmer tone rugs on hardwood floors or a lampe berger to introduce woodsy scents through the house. A berger is a vessel with a wick in oil; you light the wick then blow out the flame and the heat infuses the room with the perfume. They also suggest putting out fireplace tools on the hearth even if you don’t have a working fireplace. All these things help layer the warmth in the home. The designers are also huge fans of Bella Notte bed linens, as they have such old world charm. These linens are dyed by hand, so they have a look of being passed down through the generations. A bed made up of luscious warm-toned linen just invites

you to snuggle down on winter nights. And don’t forget the outdoors. Your front door sets the tone of welcome to family and friends, so hang a beautiful wreath on the front door, then relax and enjoy. A wreath doesn’t have to have a Christmas theme to add a touch of warmth and welcome to your outdoor spaces. All of these things will go a long way towards making your home warm, comfortable and welcoming.

If the exterior of the lawnmower is made of steel, you could coat it with some non-polluting cooking oil. The wheel axels should be greased, the blades sharpened and greased as well, the air filter cleaned or changed if necessary, and the spark plug cleaned. A metal lawnmower should also be inspected for any rust spots and, if necessary, touched up with a suitable paint. The inside of the chassis might benefit from being coated with oil in order to protect it, and the bearings and the cables should be lubricated. After thoroughly hosing down the lawnmower, including the underneath of course, be sure to store it in a dry place for the winter. After all this care, it will be sure to give you another season of faithful service next year!

The oil from the crankcase of the motor should be emptied into a storage container. This job is best done when the oil is still warm and liquidy. Clean the crankcase with some gasoline and fill it with new oil up to the recommended level; this will prevent condensation and rusting from occurring inside. Don’t forget that oil with a viscosity grading of 20-40 is the best one for your lawnmower.

Chores to do before winter arrives Before the snow and cold weather come, it’s a good idea to do some seasonal preparations around the home and yard. You might not feel like doing this kind of thing right now, but getting it done in the fall will be more agreeable for you than if you wait until December! Here are a few suggestions. If the cladding on balconies or steps becomes slippery in cold weather, install an outdoor carpet or non-skid strips.

SOLID SURFACE & LAMINATE COUNTER TOPS

Late in October, after the lawn has been cut for the last time, remove any remaining gas and store it in a suitable container. Next, empty the gas tank, flexible rubber feed hoses, and carburetor by letting the mower’s engine run until there is no fuel left. This is a particularly important step, as the additives in unleaded gas tend to settle over long periods of disuse. This sediment can obstruct the carburetor jets when you fire up the mower next spring.

Disconnect, empty, and store garden hoses. Pipes and outside taps should be bled to avoid frost damage. Clean and inspect the roof before the cold weather makes it difficult to climb on it. Remove debris and leaves from gutters, check the state of the chimney, if you have one, and have it swept if necessary.

Install bird feeders to help your feathered friends survive the winter in your garden. Clean up the barbecue. For safety reasons, always leave the propane tank outside, summer and winter alike.

Fixing damp spaces a four-step process â&#x20AC;&#x153; from page.17 isolate the home from the lower dirt or concrete. We do it by encapsulating the whole space which creates a very strong vapour barrier; this prevents moisture from coming through into the crawlspace,â&#x20AC;? says Currie. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In a crawlspace you can get moisture from a variety of areas. It can come through the walls, through the floor, through any openings in the space.â&#x20AC;? Basement Systems crawlspace liner is a heavy 20-millimetre-thick material. It is manufactured in seven layers â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a blend of high-density polyethylene, low-density polyethylene, and two layers of polyester cord reinforcement. Not only does this create a moisture barrier, it is so tough you can crawl on it without doing damage. This gives you a safe storage space. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are four stages to our process,â&#x20AC;? Currie explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One: we seal off the crawlspace vents and doors with an airtight seal. This protects the space from outside influences. Two: if the space is subject to flooding, a sump pump with a drainage swale is a very effective way of dealing with groundwater flooding. This also protects from plumbing failure. Three: Encapsulate the space with the vapour barrier. Four: Once the area is sealed off, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea Basement Systems Vancouver says that a damp basement, above, doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be to install a crawlspace dehumidifier.

Apart from the health issues, having a large area of your home unusable doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make sense. Basement Systems can fix the problem in a couple of days, Currie says. The water problem needs to be stopped along the perimeter of the floor by removing a portion of the floor to create a trench and filling it with clean stone. At this point, they lay in a WaterGuard system and then drain tile is laid. All the water is directed to a sump pump system to channel the water out through buried PVC pipe, preventing more damage.

TIRED OF HIGH CAR PAYMENTS?

Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl said the Conservative government has delivered on a promise to crack down on crime with an act that contains a number of bills shot down earlier by the Liberal and NDP opposition. “These much-needed reforms will place the rights of victims ahead of those of criminals and will make our streets and neighbourhoods safe,” Strahl said in a news release announcing the Safe Streets and Communities Act. “I’m pleased that our government is acting on the mandate Canadians gave us to crack down on crime,” he said. The act re-introduces a number of bills that did not become law because of the combined voting of Liberal and NDP MPs in the previous minority government. Among them: • former Bill C-54 which proposes increased penalties for sexual offences against children, and creation of two new offences aimed at conduct that facilitates or enables sexual offences against a child; • former Bill S-10 which imposes tougher sentences for the production and possession of illegal drugs for trafficking purposes; • former Bill C-4 which ensures young offenders convicted of violent crimes are held accountable, and makes protection of society paramount; • former Bill C-29 which enshrines a victim’s right to participate in parole hearings; Strahl said the comprehensive law-and-order bill will allow the government to address the concerns of Canadians “quickly after needless delay” by opposition parties.

The Valley Women’s Network in Chilliwack is celebrating a milestone that would make most women cringe. But not these women. The non-profit organization is turning 30 years old. And its members – all women – are jumping for joy. On Oct. 21, a birthday party is being held at the Best Western Rainbow Country Inn at noon to celebrate the non-profit organization’s successes over the years. For 30 years, Valley Women’s Network has supported and empowered women in their personal and professional growth. It has never once veered from that mandate. Founded in 1981, the Chilliwack branch was the original foundation of the Valley Women’s Network, which now thrives in several communities across the province today. The concept is simple. Women of all ages, backgrounds and abilities meet once a month to network, talk, pitch ideas and learn from each other. Over a power-packed lunch, the women have the chance to connect, share and accumulate valuable resources. The once-a-month luncheons are held on the fourth Tuesday of every month at the Best Western Country Inn, and often feature guest speakers discussing a variety of topics from business and marketing to women’s health. The membership, which currently exceeds 70, includes women who run home-based businesses, women who are immersed in the corporate world, women who work for small, mom-and-pop shops, and more. The organization isn’t just about helping each other, it also helps the community. For the past two years, the Chilliwack club has supported Robertson elementary in a variety of ways, including filled backpacks for back-to-school, Christmas hampers and stockings for families in need, donations to the Super Reader Program, as well as mentoring and fostering relationships with moms at various social gatherings. For more information on Valley Women’s Network, or to attend the birthday celebration, contact Marge MacAra at 604-795-7455 or email mcpro2@telus.net.

Joey Benik missed a wide open net. The Vees out-shot the Chiefs 17-6 in the middle frame, but Chilliwack carried a 4-1 lead to the third. Gillam turned in a huge save in the opening minute of period three, stretching post to post to take a sure goal away from snake-bitten Benik. At 3:11, Jeremy Gossard dashed any Penticton comeback hopes with his first of the season. Sixteenyear-old Garrett Forster started the play with a cheeky behind-theback pass in the neutral zone. Jaret Babych took the feed in full flight, crossed the Vees blueline and fed Gossard, who beat Katunar with a low shot that squeaked inside the right post. Berry scored with 8:21 remaining, blowing a power play slap shot past Katunar. Trevor Hills added the exclamation point with just over two minutes remaining, scoring on another man

The Chiefs gave the fans one final moment to cheer about, saluting the crowd at centre ice after the final whistle. “They (Penticton) certainly didn’t play their best game, but we certainly stepped up and brought a lot of energy,” Hansen said. “We had lots of adrenaline right of the bat from the pre-game stuff and the crowd. Lots of guys who came from Quesnel aren’t used to that kind of fan support.” The three stars were Penticton’s Troy Stecher (third), Gillam (second) and Hansen (first).

Soccer Strikers clip Coyotes Chilliwack’s U-16 Striker girls travelled to Kerrisdale to face the Vancouver United Coyotes on Saturday, playing the soccer game in gusty conditions. The wind played havoc with high kicks, but Chilliwack played smartly, kept the ball on the ground and opened the scoring nine minutes in. Right midfielder Kaila Ronda sent a ball through to forward Emily Finley, who beat a defender and crossed the ball to

Emma Haagensen. She picked the top corner to give the Strikers a 1-0 lead. Chilliwack doubled the lead 10 minutes into the second half on a pretty three-way passing play. Keeper Samantha Chand sent a punt to center where Haagensen trapped it and fed the ball ahead to Finley. Finley split the defense and slammed a shot low into the far corner for a 2-0 lead. Vancouver got on the board in the 18th minute, but Chilliwack

re-gained their composure and took charge of the game. Brett Karcioglu supplied the insurance goal with help from Taylor Allen and Makayla Pfeifer. Karcioglu beat a Vancouver defender in the box and punched the ball into the net. Her goal stood up as the winner as Vancouver netted a late strike to make the final 3-2. Chilliwack enjoys a bye this week before travelling to Richmond for a Thanksgiving tournament.

United earns draw with Abby The U-11 United girls soccer team earned a 1-1 draw with the Abbotsford Mariners. It was great weather for fall soccer and

United started out with strong positional play. The score was 1-0 at halftime for United, with Grace Vandenbrink picking up the goal.

Abbotsford came out strong in the second half, searching for the equalizer. They tied the game with less than 10 minutes remaining.

Raiders rough up Huskers The Chilliwack Huskers surrendered 356 rushing yards and 75 points on Saturday, losing a laugher to the Vancouver Island Raiders. Chilliwack made the long trip to Caledonia Park in Nanaimo, and found themselves blitzed by the stillunbeaten Raiders (8-0). Nanaimo led 16-0 after one quarter and 40-0 at the half. Four Nanaimo ball-carriers topped 50 yards, led by Alex Jobson, who had seven carries for 120 yards and a touchdown. Aston Galloway (two for 60, two TDs), Taylor Favel (one for 55) and Jordan Botel (four for 54, one TD) helped the

Coquitlam crushed The Chilliwack Lunachicks rolled into Coquitlam on Sunday, and left with a well earned 4-1 win to stay undefeated in earlyseason women’s soccer action. Things didn’t start well for the Lunachicks, with Coquitlam opening the scoring just three minutes in. Kelly Wilmets had a hand in Chilliwack’s three first-half goals, setting up Rebecca Bramley for the first, Andrea Feaver for the second and Michelle Julian for the third. In the second half, Tamara Soellner came close to increasing the Chilliwack lead only to see her shot bounce off the goal post. Feaver closed out the scoring at the 32 minute mark when Willmets sent her down the wing with a nice through-ball. Feaver fired a shot into the far side of the net.

Raiders chew up big chunks of yardage on the ground. Andrew DeLeon had a 41 yard touchdown run on his only carry of the game and Favel added a 66 yard punt return for a major. Nanaimo quarterback Jordan Yantz didn’t throw often, but was effective when he did. Yantz completed eight of 14 passes for 141 yards and two majors. Backup Dustin Pederson threw two passes in mop-up time, completing both with one TD. Nanaimo’s leading receiver was Dustin

Pederson, with four catches for 78 yards. Andrew Smith, Whitman Tomusiak and Marshall Cook reeled in touchdown tosses. Chilliwack’s offence managed 150 net yards on the day. The rushing game generated 34 yards on 12 carries. The passing game generated 161 yards as quarterbacks Adann Hendrickson and David Hollinshead combined to complete 14 of 31 attempts with three interceptions. Dylon Chapdelaine, Brandon Larocque and Cody Biduke had the picks for Nanaimo, with Spencer Riche adding a

fumble recovery. Local lads Dylan Boykowich and Cody Parray contributed to the Chilliwack attack. Boykowich led all Husker receivers with four catches for 52 yards. Parray caught one for 20. With the loss the Huskers record slipped to 0-8, with just two games remaining in the 2011 season. The Huskers host the Okanagan Sun Saturday at 7 p.m. at Exhibition Stadium before finishing on the road Oct. 8 in Kamloops. Get scores and standings online at www.bcjuniorfootball.ca.

of the yard and any special features. The MLS allows Realtors to feed in a buyers’ basic needs and match them up to the listings of all area Realtors. When you list your home, you are employing not only the listing Realtor to market your home, but hundreds of the Realtors’ colleagues who will work cooperatively to get your property sold as quickly as possible. If you have been house-hunting on your own, you may have been relying on real estate ads or driving through your favourite neighbourhoods in search of ‘For Sale’ signs. A good Realtor can save you time and gasoline by making your search easier and more efficient, showing you only the homes that will actually fit your needs. Realtors learn about homes as they go on the market, and the best values may sell before they are ever advertised! A Realtor who has seen the homes available in the area can save you time and effort. By using the Multiple Listing Service a Realtor can also show you his or her company’s listings, as well as those of any other firm. The Realtor can also give you any information you need about nearby public transportation, schools, shopping, and recreational facilities. When you find a Realtor with whom you feel comfortable, you should work exclusively with that person. Your loyalty will give the Realtor great incentive to create the perfect match between you and a new house, or you and a qualified buyer.

Real estate transactions are complex in which innumerable snags can occur. A Realtor is an invaluable asset to your venture if you are in the market for a house or ready to sell your home. When you find a Realtor with whom you feel confident, it is good to enter into a committed working relationship with that person. Concentrating your search for a home or finding a buyer for your home with one Realtor, will allow the Realtor to become totally familiar with your needs, desires, and financial capacities. Maintaining loyalty to the Realtor of your choice will serve you more than scattering your attention among several agents. When a Realtor feels your commitment, he or she will devote great energy to finding the right home or buyer for you. Are you worried that having one Realtor may limit your capacity to find the perfect home or sell your home for top dollar? Many people assume that only the Realtor listed on the for sale sign can handle the transaction. The fact is any Realtor can sell your property. In the last decade the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) has revolutionized the way real estate is sold all over the country. When listing your home, a Realtor enters the pertinent information about your property into a computerized inventory bank. Having your home placed on the Multiple Listing Service provides the most effective advertising available because all Realtors have immediate access to information such as the price, location, number of bedrooms and bathrooms, as well as the size

The Chilliwack Progress Tuesday, September 27, 2011

A day after global stock markets took a stomach-churning drop last week, Robert Chambers was maintaining his perspective. He talks about the bigger picture, how the headlines and newscasts can’t replace careful planning and smart investing. Chambers is a financial advisor with Edward Jones in Chilliwack. And, yes, while the recent market volatility has meant a few more phone calls, Chambers takes the long view. With charts and spreadsheets at the ready, he offers measured assurance about recovery and opportunity. Chambers’ ability to take the long view might have something to do with his background. Chambers is a fifth-generation

resident – a history he’s proud of. Walk into his Vedder Road office and you’ll find a trove of photographs and artifacts that catalogue his family’s history in the area. “For as long as there’s been a Vedder Road,” he says with a smile, “one of my family has had a business on it.” Working in a world characterized by dramatic highs and lows, that stability helps ground him. At the end of the day, he explains, his job is not about the money, it’s about the people. “You manage people’s emotions,” he says. “You manage their expectations.” Chambers describes his business as a conservative retirement and wealth management

firm. His goal is to help people manage their finances in a way that leaves them comfortable and secure. Doing that successfully means getting to know people and earning their confidence. “You need to talk to people and find out what their needs are.” That’s the part of the job Chambers loves, meeting people and helping them understand how they can help themselves. “We educate. We don’t sell,” he says. If that education starts early it can have huge financial implications in the long term, he says. But even decisions later and life can have an impact if they are done wisely. Chambers counts on his own

For many people, their home is their biggest asset and their prized possession. When it comes time to buy that first home, or sell your current home and upgrade, why trust someone that doesn’t have intimate knowledge of the area and local market? Having been born and raised in Chilliwack, knowing the community and various neighbourhoods comes as second nature to me. With an extensive background in Personal and Commercial Insurance Sales and Marketing, I know what it takes to market products to the right people to achieve a quick sale and for top dollar. I love working with people and seeing my clients meet their Real Estate Goals is my main focus!

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.

CHRIS EMERY & LARRY FINNSON Chris Emery and Larry Finnson are two of Canada’s great entrepreneurs. As the creators of Clodhoppers candy they took Chris’ grandma’s recipe and developed it into a multi-million dollar business. Their youthful and energetic style and neversay-die attitude led Clodhoppers to a point where it was ranked amongst the top candy brands in Canada according to A.C. Nielsen’s data.
