Sardis students warned about TB risk Katie Bartel The Progress A student at Sardis secondary has been diagnosed with infectious tuberculosis. Last week, a letter from the Fraser Health Authority was sent home with students notifying the community of the active tuberculosis (TB) case in the school. The letter was also posted to the school’s website. Tuberculosis is an infection of the lungs, that can develop into Because TB iis a disease. When the B disease is active, TB nestled way germs attack the lungs and grow, causinside your ing damage. It is durbody, it takes a ing this active stage the infection is length of time when spread through the air to get rid of it by coughing or sneezing. The infected stu~ Dr. Nadine dent, who is a partLoewen time student, is being treated in isolation until no longer contagious. Not all staff and students at Sardis secondary are at risk, said Dr. Nadine Loewen, medical health officer with the Fraser Health Authority. Casual contact with an infected person in common areas such as the library or cafeteria is not considered to pose a risk, nor is sharing clothing, dishes or drinks. However, more intimate contact, including prolonged hours in a classroom, are considered a risk. Skin screening tests will take place at the school during the week of Nov. 14 for staff and students identified as high risk. “For people who don’t have symptoms, and who have been exposed to TB, it usually takes between three to eight weeks before a skin test will provide evidence on whether or not they have been exposed,” said Loewen. “The skin test is only for people who have been identified as contacts and who show no symptoms. If you had symptoms, and you had been

American fishermen targeted by vandals Robert Freeman The Progress A Seattle man says his car tires were slashed Saturday while he was fishing the upper Vedder River, apparently by someone with a grudge against Americans. Brad Hole said his was the only one with U.S. licence plates in the parking area near Borden Creek, but many more U.S. fishermen had their tires slashed over the weekend. A Canadian Tire employee said 12 U.S. visitors with slashed tires came in for repairs “on Saturday alone.” “They were slashing the tires in pairs,” he said, so the vehicles couldn’t be moved without a tow truck.

The peaceful fishing along the Vedder River got a little ugly over the weekend, after several vehicles sporting American licence plates had their tires slashed. RCMP are investigating.

45930 Airport Road 604-795-9104

Chilliwack RCMP said there were nine reports of vandalism to American vehicles parked in the Keith Wilson Road area. According to online fishing sites, up to 30 instances of tire slashing may have occurred all along the Vedder River and in campgrounds in the area. “Tires were slashed on 20 vehicles up and down the river,” one blogger said, “and the culprits were not only doing one tire but multiple tires, and they were specifically targeting vehicles with American plates.” Hole said he’s been fishing the Vedder for 10 years, and he was shocked to find his tires slashed. “I’ve never had anything like this happen before,” he said.

“Both tires were flat on the driver’s side, front and back.” Hole said the tire slashing may be the work of only one vandal, but it reflects poorly on the area in general. “Such a shame that we spend big money for fishing licenses, lodging and dining in your city to have this happen,” he said. California resident Steve Phillips said he was on his way home and stopped “in this beautiful little town” just for the pleasure of fishing the Vedder for a day. But the pleasure turned sour when he ended up paying more than $1,000 for repairs after his car tires were slashed near the Keith Wilson bridge. “I’m just passing through,

on my way to California, and I wasn’t even going to keep the fish,” Phillips said. “I don’t understand how I’m hurting anybody,” he said. Frank Kwak, president of the Fraser Valley Salmon Society, said he couldn’t figure out what motive anyone would have for slashing the tires of American fishermen. “This absolutely terrible,” he said. “The Americans have every right to fish here, and we welcome them with open arms.” U.S. anglers pay good money for fishing permits, he said, and spend a lot of money locally. “I’m more than willing to share my river with them,”

Race to fill council seats gets a bit more crowded Chuck Stam, Jason Lum, Phill Bruce and Mitchell Nosko add their names to the ballot More names were added to the list of candidates seeking a spot on Chilliwack city council this week. Councillor Chuck Stam kept everyone waiting until Wednesday morning to declare he would be seeking a fifth term of office on city council. “Chilliwack has not finished evolving,” Stam says in a news release, “and must continue to adapt and improve as a community, to accomplish the tasks our residents need us to perform in the

complex environment before us.” Emphasis on the “triple bottom line” is a personal priority for him, along with “value for taxes, resident quality of life, and sensible environmental sustainability.” He emphasized the importance of “local jobs and economic wellbeing” since he believes everything flows from a strong economy: great facilities, services, roads and infrastructure. Lum enters council race

It was hinted at last week on

Twitter. Now it’s official. Chamber of commerce president Jason Lum is jumping into the fray to run for city council. “I’m excited the news is public, and eager to hit the ground running,” Lum said. Creating a “healthy, vibrant community” through innovation, education, and quality of life are some of his goals. He was approached to run two years ago, and has been humbled by the support received to date. The Sardis secondary grad studied at the University of the Fraser Valley and is owner/operator of a

local tech firm, Myriad. In 2007, he joined the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce board, eventually taking over as one of the youngest presidents in the its 108-year history. He is a board member of Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation, Downtown Chilliwack BIA, Chilliwack Museum, and chair of the Lower Mainland Economic Sustainability Panel, the Stó:lo Development Corporation, as well as vice chair of the Fraser Valley Healthcare Foundation. Along with his work with the business community, Lum has also

volunteered as a Youth Mentor with the Phoenix Program at Chilliwack Community Services and is a member of the Mount Cheam Rotary Club. Bruce runs for council

Paramedic Phill Bruce is joining the race for a council seat in Chilliwack, citing a lifelong interest in community politics. “For many years I have watched friends, family, and mentors work in these positions, and have admired the growth that they have acquired in human relations,” he said in a news release.

Cultus Pub hit by armed robber

Two more people have come forward as school trustee candidates, bringing the total number to 12 – four more than last election. Former District Parents’ Advisory council vice president Karen Jarvis put her name into the ring last week. Jarvis, who has three children in the school system, has been a regular attendee at board meetings for more than six years. She is also studying communications at the University of the Fraser Valley. Strong communication with the whole community, she said, is key to being a good trustee. “Being a trustee is not about leaving a legacy, it’s about embracing change that results in positive student success,” she said. Local pastor and certified teacher Vern Tompke is also seeking votes. For 15 years, Tompke has been a pastor at Chilliwack Vineyard Community Church, and for seven of those years, he’s been a teacher on call for the Chilliwack school district. He has worked in almost every grade and school in the district, and has built relationships with families, teachers and principals. Tompke is also familiar with other avenues of education beyond public schooling. His three children, now all attending UFV, attended public schools, as well as private schools and were also home schooled for a stretch. Tompke, who has a degree

Chilliwack RCMP were in hot pursuit of a suspect in the armed robbery of the Cultus Lake pub at about 1:45 p.m. Tuesday. The robber reportedly aimed a longbarrelled handgun at a patron before fleeing on foot with an undisclosed amount of cash from the pub located at 3696 Columbia Valley Rd. But a police dog picked up a track that led investigators to a set of tire prints behind the pub, suggesting the suspect escaped in a small passenger-type vehicle. The suspect was described as a white male with a slim build, about 5’8”-5’-10” tall and wearing a brown hooded sweatshirt with white writing and lightcoloured blue jeans. “Crimes involving weapons are always a very high priority to us,” Const. Tracy Wolbeck said in a news release. “Thankfully, nobody was hurt in this situation,” she said. The police investigation continues. Anyone with information about the robbery is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222TIPS.

Chilliwack Mall will be a busy place next week as the Rotary Book Sale returns Sunday. PROGRESS FILE

Book sale spawns generations of readers Katie Bartel The Progress For 17 years, Cecile Murray has opened the eyes of children to the world of books around them. She’s helped them find classic Robert Munsch and beloved Goosebumps, and has helped them rediscover old tales, including Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, and the If You Give A... series by Laura Numeroff. Murray, 67, is one of the Rotary Book Sale’s veteran volunteers where she has been sorting children’s books and connecting children with books for years. But she’s not a Rotary Club member. She does it for the love of reading, she says. Murray first got involved with the book sale through Rotary Anns, a now defunct club, that was comprised of Rotary members’ wives, before it was common for women to be Rotary members themselves. “We were asked to look after the magazines for the book sale, and eventually that led into children’s

books,” says Murray. After Rotary Anns folded in 1999, “a couple of us just kept on going with it.” For Murray, there was no question she would continue. The avid reader, who almost always has a book on the go, ingrained a love of reading in her own three children, who then passed that love on to their children. She has also regularly volunteered in the public library and school libraries. “I’m quite an advocate for children’s reading,” she says. “My children are all avid readers through my efforts and now their children are through their efforts.” And when she sees her teenage grandchildren choose books over computer games, it warms her heart. These days, however, that’s often not the choice made. “There are so many things out there taking children away from reading: computers, TV, movies, video games,” says Murray. “I strongly believe it is so important for children to read and for parents

to still read to their children.” And she believes her efforts with the Rotary Book Sale is helping to achieve just that. This year’s children’s section will feature a wide selection of picture books, young reader books, junior and teen novels, activity books, comics, and more. “One of the things I love most about doing this is, at the sale... being able to find a child something they haven’t read before and to see them happily wander off with a couple of treasures in their hands,” she says. In addition to kids’ books, the sale will have thousands of other used books up for grabs, including best sellers, romance, Harlequins, mystery, war, western, and even a few collector editions. Records, CDs, DVDs and selected magazines will also be available. Prices will range from $1 to $5 for both fiction and non-fiction. Collector books are individually priced based on research. The Rotary Book Sale runs from Oct. 16 to 22 at Chilliwack Mall.

News Connecting with Chilliwack’s most needy Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Everything will be given freely on Oct. 15 and nothing is expected in return. This year’s Chilliwack Connect event could attract more than 400 participants to First Avenue Christian Assembly, said Coun. Stewart McLean, a member of the planning team. “It’s a life-changing experience for some people who take part,” said he said. “It can give them some focus or a new direction to go in.” The idea behind the community-driven event is simple: connect the homeless, working poor, or those at risk of becoming homeless with a cornucopia of donated goods, services and resource people. A hot meal, a hair cut, child

care, a hygiene pack and gently used clothes are some of what will be made available at no cost to participants. Last year a single mom of five kids told the city councillor that “no one” had ever treated her so well in her whole life as she had been that day. “It’s one of those things where it just feels like the right thing to do,” McLean said. “The idea is that we’re there to serve them, as our guests for the day, and if possible to connect them with the resource people they’re looking for.” Everything at Chilliwack Connect is the result of more than 150 volunteers and 20 organizing team members, and sponsors, from the faith community, non-profit sector, and various levels of government. Volunteers are paired with

individuals as soon as they register to help them navigate the various kiosks and agencies on hand that may have information they need. All participants get a door prize ticket and they all stand to win some sort of prize during the day, as well as a shopping bag full of hygiene products and other donated items. “Their faces just light up. So many people told me last year they had never won anything before,” he said. “Those experiences impact you emotionally.” The atmosphere is purposely relaxed, and no one is forced to do anything they don’t care to. The second ever Chilliwack Connect event is set for Oct. 15, starting at 8:30 a.m. at the First Avenue Christian Assembly.

Police want information on tire slashing POLICE from Front “I’m more than willing to share my river with them,” Kwak said. Abbotsford angler Joey Booth said he was “disgusted and outraged” by the vandalism, and he apologized to the U.S. fishermen

“on behalf of all decent Canadians.” “My hope is that the person or persons responsible will brag about it and find themselves reported to the RCMP,” he said. “They have brought shame to our community and to our country.”

RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said many of the incidents took place in broad daylight, in an area where many people were walking. “Our American guests came to Chilliwack for a weekend of fishing, and instead spent their time and money having their

There would be no delay at all.” Tuberculosis symptoms include a persistent cough, fever, loss of appetite, weight loss, night sweats, or chills. Any individual with symptoms consistent with TB are encouraged to see a physician for assessment. An infected person is treated in isolation with medication and is monitored by TB Control Clinics. When they are determined no longer infectious, they are taken out of isolation, but continue on with medication for six to nine months after, depending on the circumstance. “Because TB is nestled way inside your body, it takes a length of time to get rid of it,” said Loewen.

News Trustees wrangle over class size report Katie Bartel The Progress Classrooms in the Chilliwack school district may be meeting government requirements, but some trustees and teachers are arguing those requirements are not legal. At Tuesday night’s board of education meeting, superintendent Michael Audet presented his class size and composition report, which will be sent to the B.C. Education Ministry for approval later this month. In the report, it states that no kindergarten class in the district exceed 19 students, no grades 1-3 classes exceed 24 students, and no grades 4-7 classes exceed 30 students. However, in grades 8-12, 124 classes do exceed 30 students. Class size legislation in B.C. states that grades 1-3 classes cannot exceed 24 students without teacher consent; grades 4-7 classes cannot exceed 30 students without teacher consent; and grades 8-12 classes cannot exceed 30 students without teacher consultation. “We are well within the expectations,” said Audet.

Legislation also states no more than three students with special needs, requiring individualized education plans (IEP) are permitted in a classroom without teacher consent. In Chilliwack, there are 28 elementary classes and 234 middle and secondary classes with more than three special needs students requiring IEPs. Audet said, as a general rule, the district does not have more than five students with IEPs in one class. However, Chilliwack Teachers’ Association president Katharin Midzain said her numbers didn’t match up with the district’s. “At the middle-secondary level, my information shows at least 71 classes with more than six IEPs, several with 11 or 12... and an additional 48 that have five,” said Midzain, who also opposed the consultation process. The report showed 66 teachers had agreed to having 30 or more students in their class; to having more than three students with IEPs; or both. “That means over 250 teachers disagreed,” said Midzain. “We used to have language [in the collective agreement] that

A Chilliwack woman’s screams for help may have scared off a would-be robber Saturday. Police said the victim had just left the Money Mart at 45805 Luckakuck Way at about 4:15 p.m. when a knife-wielding man demanded her purse. “The victim was able to yell for help, which likely helped in frightening the offender off,” RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said. “Thankfully, she was not injured but the potential was there with a weapon involved,” she said. The suspect, described as a six-foot white male wearing a black hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans, fled on foot in an unknown direction. Anyone with information is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

brought reasonable and real support to all our students,” but now, “it’s just a numbers game the ministry has us playing.” A game trustee John Henry Harter said is illegal. Last April, Madam Justice Susan Griffin with the B.C. Supreme Court ruled that the provincial government’s 2002 legislation, which stripped the teachers’ union from bargaining class size limits and composition was a violation of their bargaining rights. “I would suggest to you that the supreme court actually found that the class size and composition legislation in the school act is illegal,” said Harter. “I don’t think, in good conscience, we can actually support something that shouldn’t be in the school act. And that is not just my opinion, it is the supreme court’s.” Trustee Silvia Dyck, however, said the ruling was a matter of interpretation and that she was comfortable supporting the superintendent’s report. The report was approved with Harter and trustee Louise Piper in opposition.

The challenges ahead As nominations for this fall’s municipal election draw to a close, it’s clear Chilliwack voters will have plenty to choose from on Nov. 19. Candidates still have until 4 p.m. Friday to file their nomination papers, but as of yesterday there were several people seeking one of the six seats on council, and 12 people seeking one of the seven seats on the Chilliwack Board of Education. What’s still unclear is if there will be a race for the Mayor’s chair. If the incumbent Sharon Gaetz goes unchallenged it will be unfortunate – not because Gaetz has done a poor job, but because an uncontested mayoral race tends to lower overall voter turnout. That’s too bad, because there are issues that need to be dealt with during the three years ahead that need to be discussed now. There’s work to be done at both the city council and school board level. Chilliwack continues to feel the pressure of a growing community. That growth must occur in a smart and systematic way if we are to avoid bigger problems down the road. Chilliwack’s infrastructure must keep pace with that growth – that includes properly funded police and fire services. Candidates may find it easy to say no to any spending initiatives. However, the real challenge will be to find innovative ways to fund these necessities so we are not simply deferring road repairs (for example) to future administrations. Chilliwack school trustees are also facing challenges. Chilliwack has the unenviable position of having a high school completion rate that lags behind the provincial average. It is currently also undertaking an expansion and modernization of three of its schools. It is also facing the challenge of a growing school population and a rapidly changing world. And it’s doing all of this while trying to rebuild its senior administration. Chilliwack needs a board of education that is able to generate an environment that will attract and retain talented and innovative people who can deal with these challenges. There are candidates who will assure us over the next few weeks that they are the ones who can meet these challenges. It is up to us to listen, question, decide and then register our vote.

Television stunts won’t solve court problems Victoria – Premier Christy Clark handed her opponents more ammunition last week with her latest “ready, fire, aim” episode, calling for radio and TV coverage of Stanley Cup riot prosecutions. The day after this half-baked idea was announced, Public Safety Minister Shirley Bond had to sign an executive order directing Crown prosecutors to ask judges for broadcast coverage. Prosecutors have enough trouble getting convictions in our stumbling, delay-plagued court system without spending time on TV applications for minor cases. Bond referred reporters to the long list of conditions under which broadcasting may be done from court. In the unlikely event a judge consents to broadcast access, nothing can be aired until at least two hours after a morning or afternoon session has been adjourned. Absurdly, everyone

involved, from lawyers to witnesses to defendants, has a veto over their image or voice being broadcast. No accused people would consent to that. The rules are designed to fail. I’m all in favour of televising court, not so much to shame perpetrators as to show what a cozy little closed shop it is. Tom I recently sat in FLETCHER on the plea-bargained sentence for James Roy Taylor, the former Fraser Health technology manager caught with his hand in the cookie jar for the second time in his career. Crown and defence lawyers exchanged legalese barely above a whisper, congratulating each other for the elegance of the tap

on the wrist they were giving Taylor for accepting multiple benefits in exchange for approving fraudulent invoices for a doctor supplying questionable electronic health services. Taylor has to do community service, pay back the lolly he admits accepting, and take a reduced pension on account of being fired as a crook. Poor fellow. Anyone who has sat in court for long sees the endless parade of adjournments and excuses that routinely substitute for progress. Years ago I publicized the efforts a pioneering group of youth court observers, ordinary citizens horrified by the sluggish pace of proceedings. Day after day they saw smirking teens watch lawyers compare schedules before heading off to lunch. Those citizens’ efforts led to a diversion program for first-time offenders to provide timely consequences for first-time

offenders. Don’t take it from me on the state of our courts. Gov. Gen. David Johnston, a law professor before being appointed the Queen’s representative in Canada, gave a speech in August in which he ripped lawyers for violating their social contract with the public with unacceptable delays. “We enjoy a monopoly to practise law,” Johnston told the Canadian Bar Association meeting. “In return, we are duty-bound to serve our clients competently, to improve justice and to continuously create the good. That’s the deal.” As usual, the political debate is nearly sterile. The NDP wants more judges, prosecutors, sheriffs and courthouses. Pour more money in, just like the school and health systems, says the party that hasn’t had a new idea in 30 years.

Bond did propose a new idea last week. Probation orders with conditions will soon be available for those charged with public drunkenness under the Liquor Control and Licensing Act rather than the Criminal Code. But they would still have to go to court. Perhaps the government could take a cue from their recent revision of impaired driving laws, giving police the ability to assess fines and impound vehicles on the spot. Perhaps by the time the next big drunken riot starts to brew, cops would actually be able to offer consequences. Going around the court system is their best bet these days.

Walter Used To Eat Frozen Dinners Alone

Tire vandals bring shame to Canada Re: Senseless Destruction on the Vedder Having just finished Thanksgiving, we in the Fraser Valley have much for which to give thanks. This is especially true of all the sport fisherman who have excellent access to the wonderful Vedder River which has been producing some excellent catches of coho and chinook salmon this past week. It is with some great sadness that I report a horrible incident that occurred over the weekend. Our famous fishing opportunities also draw neighbours from south of the border, and we meet them as we fish shoulder to shoulder on the sand bars and river banks.

I had the pleasure of meeting and getting to know at least three men from Washington State during the past few days, Bob, George and Jeff. When I arrived on Saturday afternoon and parked on the dyke road by the Keith Wilson Bridge, I notice a number of cars up on wheel jacks. After some quick investigation, I learned that someone had maliciously slashed tires on all the cars with U.S. plates that were parked along this stretch of the road. Of course I was disgusted and outraged at this stupid act of vandalism. Many of the vehicles had two tires slashed and so it was not simply a matter of putting on

a spare. Vehicles had to be towed to repair shops. Jeff had to stay overnight and have tires brought in from the U.S. because there were none available locally on this holiday weekend. I apologized to these friends upon behalf of all decent Canadians, assuring them this is not representative of our feelings towards our international neighbours. My hope is that the person or persons responsible will brag about it and find themselves reported to the RCMP. They have brought shame to our community and to our country.

Now he enjoys a varied menu and great company!

M

ealtime was mostly a chore for Walter. Living alone, he would simply choose what was easiest to prepare and eat it in front of the TV. Nutrition was rarely a consideration. At Chartwell, the chef changes the menu daily, so Walter not only gets to choose from a variety of balanced meals, but he enjoys them with a sidedish of laughter and conversation.

Cleavage controversy reveals male hypocrisy Re: Christy Clark cleavage controversy. Don’t show your cleavage here, there, anywhere, and not in my backyard (as the saying goes). Reason is: yours, mine, and our men can’t help but ogle! Our men ogle here, there, and everywhere. They can’t

help themselves. They can’t stop themselves. But when it’s in their backyard (workplace) they don’t want to get caught. Can’t afford to get caught. But and here’s the but: they specifically patronize establishments that have the female staff

billowing out of their blouses, shirts and yes the tank/bra-top! This is what ladies wear in the hospitality workplace – what they are expected to wear. So I’m thinking, to unite the hospitality workers and the office workers , etc. and espe-

cially the ladies working and serving in our elected government we should have a day – hump-day (Wednesday) would be my choice (if I had a cleavage) – to wear our bulging blouses, skintight shirts, and titillating tank/bra tops. Cindy Munro

Warning: The Internet never forgets LOL! Wait, that’s not funny. Who hasn’t left a funny prank comment on a friend’s Facebook wall, or had a friend upload a goofy photo of you at a less than flattering moment? It’s all in good fun, right? Maybe not. What is posted online in jest could end up costing someone their next apartment, or even their job. Today’s Internet user is a global publisher, spreading the latest gossip about their friends,

relatives, and even customers, to unexpected audiences eager to learn more. Most social media users have no appreciation of the legal rights of other online users. And if you post something damaging about someone else, or if it happens to you, it may be impossible to redeem your online reputation. Yes, there is a growing industry of businesses who claim to be able to fix your online reputation, but our research has found

my grandkids to play in. Over the last year I have talked via phone and e-mail to a very caring person who heads up the dept. by the name of Mr. Richard Fortin. He was always quick to respond to my emails and sent a proposal of

that these services may be prohibitively expensive for many or ineffective, so great care must be taken in choosing one. See our report at http://www.consumerscouncil.com/ormreport. We should all be much more careful about what we share about others online, and be aware of what others are posting about us. The Internet never really forgets.

News New mental health unit in Chilliwack “Cedar Ridge is an important asset for the community of Chilliwack,� said Chilliwack MLA John Les. “Mental illness can affect anyone, and families in this community will now benefit from having these services close to home.� Chilliwack-Hope MLA Barry Penner said the specialized services at Cedar Ridge are “a great step forward, and will help people recover from mental illness and integrate back into the community.� The recovery-focussed services include basic life-skills like preparing meals, housekeeping and budgeting. Clients’ length of stay range from six months to two years or longer, depending

on individual needs. The B.C. government invested $1.9 million in the Cedar Ridge program, and the Fraser Valley Regional District contributed $800,000 toward the capital costs. The 20 Chilliwack beds at Cedar Ridge are among 267 allocated around the Fraser health region as part of a $138-million project by the B.C. government to close Riverview Hospital and move psychiatric patients to community-based facilities. Patients with serious and persistent mental illness do better in smaller community-based facilities rather than large institutions like Riverview, mental health officials say.

A $2.7-million 20-bed mental health unit was officially opened Friday by Health Minister Michael de Jong and Chilliwack MLAs John Les and Barry Penner. The home-like setting of the Cedar Ridge facility, located in the former Parkholm Lodge building next to the Chilliwack General Hospital will “offer a high quality of life for those requiring specialized mental health care,� de Jong said in a news release. Initially, Cedar Ridge will accommodate patients transferred from Riverview Hospital, but as they leave the beds will be open to clients from Chilliwack and other communities in the Fraser health region.

COUNCIL from p3 Bruce said he’s ready to debate issues from “fiscal responsibility, community infrastructure, provincial and federal cutbacks,” as well as downtown revitalization and crime prevention. “I am ready to focus on these, and many more important areas that are in need of Chilliwack City Council’s attention,” he said, adding his background brings “a no-nonsense voice of reason” to the mix. Bruce is married and has three children, and has taught youth basketball and soccer. His career as a health professional has spanned 27 years as a paramedic and educator of street medicine and emergency preparedness, as well as teaching DND medics before they’re deployed overseas. “I am a huge advocate for the elderly, and feel strongly about ensuring universal literacy,” he said.

Nosco announces run for council

Council candidate Mitchell Nosko said he understands the struggles of Chilliwack’s young families. “My goals if elected to city council are to help the new families by increasing Chilliwack’s attractiveness to new business, and to help struggling existing businesses with incentives like temporary reductions in property taxes,” Nosko said in a news release announcing his candidacy. Nosko, 33, moved to Chilliwack from Toronto in 2004, and is owner/operator of Principal Air, a flight school and air charter company at the Chilliwack Airport. He’s a member of the Chilliwack Aviation and Aerospace committee, geared to expanding the aviation community and improving the Chilliwack Airport. “Chilliwack is my home, and it is where my wife and I plan to start a family,” he said. “I understand the struggles that young families face living in Chilliwack. Have to commute to work is a common trend today cause by a lack of higher paying jobs in Chilliwack.” Rapid transit is a priority for Bruce, as is fiscal restraint. “These are tough economic times and many families are struggling, the last thing they need is increased taxes,” he said. “The city has to reduce spending to keep expenditures in line with income.”

Fitness

Treating arthritis with exercise FITNESS from p16 activities such as raking leaves or carrying groceries will strengthen your muscles. Tai Chi, stretching exercises and gentle yoga routines help maintain your flexibility. Stretching exercises should be pain-free. Before beginning an exercise program, talk to your doctor. Expect some joint soreness during exercise. However, if your joints are still sore 2 hours after exercise, you probably did a little too much. Always listen

DELIC

to your body. Do not exercise during an acute arthritic flare-up. If you are too sore to exercise, rest and try again the following day. Your doctor or physiotherapist can help you develop an exercise program that is right for you. Every little bit counts!

Horne Lake Caves haunted Halloweekend fun for the family HORNE LAKE CAVES, QUALICUM BEACH – For thousands of years, in many cultures across the globe, caves have been believed to be the gateway to the spirit world. It is hard to imagine a better way to mark a holiday dedicated to ghouls and ghosts than by visiting the entrance to the Vancouver Island underworld. For most of the year, the guides at Horne Lake Caves Provincial Park work passionately to dispel spooky Hollywood myths about caves. But when Halloween rolls around, it is too irresistible to embrace

the full horror of these dark, mysterious caverns. All this month, those looking for something different this Halloween can add a new twist with a variety of fun freaky events every weekend this October. “We are thrilled to share the mysteries of the caves during Halloween,� says Laura Isaacs, Horne Lake guiding manager. “We’ve been spooking up the cave with Jack ‘O’ Lanterns the last few years and people loved it! This is a special year for the park. Not only are we celebrating the 100th anniversary

of BC Parks, but we are excited about the opening of Canada’s first Cave Theatre and Education Centre. We just want to share that excitement in keeping with the season.� Imagine a crazy Haunted House but inside a cave. Horne Lake guides have come up with a scary Ghost Story Cave Tour that runs twice a day on the weekends. Horne Lake Main Cave will transform into a display of eerilylit Jack ‘O’ Lanterns peering from every corner. Be a part of the decorating by bringing a carved pumpkin and earn a

Feinberg 604.702.5573 • jfeinberg@theprogress.com

Ross Biondolillo, Katie Lowe, Larry Hamm (from the left) rehearse for the upcoming Chilliwack Players’ Guild production of Witness for the Prosecution.

Players’ Guild presents Agatha Christie whodunit Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Settle into a comfy seat at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre to watch Witness for the Prosecution performed by the Chilliwack Players’ Guild. The gripping courtroom drama puts the spotlight on a young financial advisor, Leonard Vole, who is accused of murdering his elderly friend, Miss Emily French. “Everyone likes a good whodunit,” says producer Patti Lawn, a longtime member of the Guild. “And who doesn’t like Agatha Christie?”

Join us during Small Business Month

The production of Witness for the Prosecution runs nightly at the Cultch for the next two weekends, Oct. 13-15 and Oct. 19-22. The lead role is played by Cale Walde, within a cast of about 20 Guild players, with several newcomers. The opening scene takes place in a study. As the action unfolds the viewer gets to meet the lawyers, the witnesses and some key characters, like Leonard’s wife who could hold the key to his guilt or innocence. “The cool thing is that the courtroom drama draws the audience in and takes them along. They get really involved in

the mystery, and in mulling over who could have done it,” Lawn says. Witness for the Prosecution is known for a series of rather tortuous plot twists, characteristic of the writer’s style, as suspicion shifts from one character to the next. The murderer is finally revealed in deliciously dramatic fashion. A satisfying ‘denouement’ is in store for the audience, which is a theatrical term describing what happens when all the strands of the plot are drawn together at the end of a narrative, and the truth becomes clear. The costumes were designed by Christine Newsome, set design by Graham Archer and lighting by Haley Smith.

The short story turned into a play was written by Agatha Christie, initially published as Traitor Hands in Flynn’s Weekly on Jan. 31, 1925. Witness for the Prosecution was also made into a film in 1957 starring Charles Laughton and Marlene Dietrich. “There’s actually a connection to the Guild with that version, since the first building used by the local players was called the Charles Laughton Theatre, back in the 1950s, on Alexander Avenue.” Witness for the Prosecution, at Chilliwack Players’ Guild, $20/$15, 7:30 p.m. October 12-15, 19-22, 604-391-SHOW (7469) or www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca

Chilliwack business opens the world of coffee Greg Knill The Progress That rich aroma emanating from a warehouse off Evans Road is not only from the fresh coffee beans roasting inside. It’s the smell of success. Pacific Coffee Roasters has been making inroads in the specialty coffee market ever since the husband and wife team of Reza and Lisa Ghaffari started the company in 2008. The early going was not easy, with often more work than reward. But lately, their passion to produce coffees of exceptional quality is starting to pay dividends. From humble beginnings, the company’s coffee can now be found in about 15 stores within the Overwaitea Food Group, like PriceSmart, Save-On-Foods and Coopers. In addition, Pacific Coffee Roasters as secured distribution in 85 London Drugs stores, including some in Alberta. That success, says Reza, is attributable to one thing: quality that consumers can count on every time they open a bag of his coffee. “People know they are getting a quality product,” Lisa says. “We keep it consistent.” That attention to detail begins early. Pacific Coffee Roasters source raw coffee beans from locations around the world, like Ethiopia, Sumatra and Guatemala. But before Reza agrees to put his company’s name on them, he tests to ensure the product meets his standard. Reza is passionate about coffee – a passion that developed when he was a child growing up in Iran. (Reza’s father was in the coffee business, and he held the first beans in his hands when he was six.) To him, fine coffee has the complexity of fine wine. And beans grown in different parts of the world – even different parts of a region – have characteristics as varied as the noble grape. Understanding those subtleties is the first step in getting a good roast. Reza begins with a sample from a prospective shipment. Visually, it must be nearly perfect. A 300gram sample, for example, can’t have more than nine damaged beans. (Reza digs into a random bag of green coffee beans and, using a little tray, proudly shows there are no defects in his coffee.) The raw coffee is then roasted in a sample roaster. It’s roasted a few different ways so Reza can determine how to get the most from the bean. The samples are brewed and, with the help of a tasting panel of about four

or five coffee aficionados, the samples are tasted, tested and graded. Reza holds the final say; if the coffee meets his standard, additional shipments are secured.

But the coffee must do more than taste good. Pacific Coffee Roasters only sells coffee that is certified organic, and grown in an environmentally sustainable way. In addition, The company deals only in “fair trade” cof-

fees, meaning growers gain a fair return for the products they sell. Says Lisa: “I think a lot of the farmers here can relate to that and empathize with that.” When the heavy burlap bags arrive, the green coffee is roasted in small batches. Once the perfect roast is achieved, the information is stored in a computer that makes maintaining consistency easier. (Nonetheless, Reza won’t leave the machine’s side while the beans are roasting. “This machine is perfect,” he says with a laugh, “but I still don’t trust it. I trust myself.”) That dedication was tested from the start. Back in 2009, when Pacific Coffee Roasters secured its first order (to Hofstede’s Country Barn in Chilliwack), Lisa was pregnant with their third son. When she called him at the shop to tell him the baby was on the way, Reza admits his first impulse was to finish the order. “We still laugh about that,” says Lisa. Once the coffee is roasted the beans are packaged in bags that Lisa designed herself. The bags include tasting notes that explain the distinctive flavours in each variety. Their coffee from the specialty region of Cajamarca in norther Peru offers a, “Light smokey flavor with low acidity. A nutty aroma with a buttery mouthfeel and cocoa aftertaste.” Their “Three Oceans Blend,” which includes Asian, African and American beans, has “a hint of dark chocolate” and “lingering sweet florals.” The bags also provide instructions on how to store and grind the beans, and how to brew the perfect cup of coffee. Education is important, Reza says. For a great coffee to be enjoyed it needs to be understood. Reza is more than happy to help in that education. Their warehouse is open to the public on Thursdays and Fridays and he invites people to stop by and talk coffee. They can also purchase products there, or buy smaller “sampler” bags that help expand their coffee horizons. Reza admits that starting a small business from scratch – particularly during tough economic times – has had its challenges. But he believes a commitment to quality and consistency will help Pacific Coffee Roasters continue to succeed and expand. Pacific Coffee Roasters is located at 10544981 Commercial Court, Chilliwack.

Customer service helps shoe store remain competitive Greg Knill The Progress In a world where small businesses come and go, Payton and Buckle Fine Footwear holds a unique place in Chilliwack’s retail landscape. The shoe store has been a fixture in the city since the late 1930s. And while much has changed over the past few decades, owner John Laanstra knows one thing that never goes out of style: “Customer service.” “We still sit down and actually help the customer,” he says. Laanstra has been in the shoe business for more than 30 years. Even during that time the footwear industry has changed dramatically. Specialty stores, big box stores, even online shopping have all added new challenges for business. But Laanstra insists customers still appreciate a knowledgeable staff that is able to help them find a shoe that is as comfortable as it is fashionable. Providing strong customer service begins with understanding what his customers want. “We try to sell to the Chilliwack market,” says Laanstra. That means finding the right balance between fashion and function. Styles that may dominate the runways of Milan, won’t necessarily be appreciated here. But neither do his customers want styles that have long since passed. To achieve that balance, Laanstra stocks top brand names like Clarks and Indigo. He also ensures his store remains current with the latest fashion trends. Right now, with fall and winter approaching, boots are a popular item.

But it still comes down to that personal touch, he says – having staff who are equipped with the knowledge to help customers make right decisions. That formula has helped ensure Payton and Buckle remains a destination footwear store, more than 70 years after its doors first opened. And it’s prompted Laanstra to open a second store in Abbotsford – something he says is working out very well. Payton and Buckle is located at 45930 Wellington Ave. For more information, call 604.792.2375.

SMALL BUSINESS MAKES A BIG CONTRIBUTION TO OUR COMMUNITY.

10-11T SB11

Client satisfaction and better business results start with motivated employees “What keeps most employees engaged is a fundamental purpose and meaning in their work,� says Karamanos. “They need to feel they are part of a team and that their contributions are helping the company. Having greater responsibilities and more opportunities to grow in their career is how many employees define success today.� The result is a motivated, high-performance workforce committed to building an efficient, profitable and competitive company. The alternative, warns Karamanos, is high employee turnover and productivity losses. A well-run business where employees thrive is also a powerful recruitment tool. Younger workers have different expectations than their parents, who tended to be more conservative and placed more emphasis on the value of their pay and benefits package. “Generation Ys aren’t willing to put up with jobs they don’t find fulfilling,� says Karamanos. “They are more self-confident and increasingly sophisticated in how they define their success criteria and choose a good employer.� Profab’s employee turnover is now among the lowest in the industry—just one reason why Parks was named one of BDC’s Young Entrepreneur Award winners in 2011. He credits the company’s success to a dedicated team that’s committed to the business for the long haul. “We emerged much stronger when the economy picked up,� says Parks, who started Profab Welding in 2003. “Now we’re booking orders into 2012, hiring more people and running operations at maximum capacity.�

With the economy picking up steam, a key focus for entrepreneurs will be on building a winning team thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s committed to the business for the long run. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a primer on how a high-performance, engaged workforce can lead to more satisfied clients and better business results. When the recession hit in 2007, Jason Parks faced a choice: lay off employees or invest in his people. The owner of Profab Welding put his employees first. Workers not only kept their jobs but also learned new skills that allowed the company to expand into new specialty areas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A lot of people worked really hard to help me build this company, so the least I could do was fight for them when business dropped off,â&#x20AC;? says Parks, who now has a workforce of 120. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It turned out to be one of the best decisions Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve made, because it diversified the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business lines and it diversified our people.â&#x20AC;? A strengthening Canadian economy is expected to increase demand for skilled labour over the coming year, particularly in the resource-rich western provinces. A proven way to attract and retain skilled workers is to give them meaningful responsibilities, new learning opportunities and stimulating challenges, says Mary Karamanos, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, at the Business Development Bank of Canada (BDC). Annual surveys by BDC have consistently found a strong correlation between employee engagement, client satisfaction and business results.

This fall, until October 15 2011, all British Columbia do-it-yourselfers and home improvement gurus are being called to action in the fight against harmful mercury pollution. Anyone replacing an existing thermostat or upgrading an HVAC system is encouraged to take advantage of this free collection and responsible recycling event at Canadian Tire stores province-wide, while also obtaining a significant discount on safer, energy-efficient models. Many old thermostats contain mercury that, when disposed of in regular household waste, end up in landfills where the mercury can contaminate the air, soil and water. In addition to taking back old thermostats that contain mercury, the events will also accept programmable thermostats in order to make sure all materials are effectively diverted from landfill and recycled. In addition to offering free and responsible recycling for all end-of-life thermostats, the October events will also offer 20 to 50% off a range of new, energy efficient thermostats for sale at Canadian Tire stores, and a chance for participants to win one of three $100 Canadian Tire gift cards. New thermostats are more efficient in terms of energy use‚ saving participants up to $180 a year on heating and cooling costs. Thanks to the involvement of Canadian Tire, the exclusive 2011 retail partner in BC, saving energy and preventing pollution is as convenient as finding any one of their 53 locations throughout BC between October 8-15

Paint now under new manufacturing regulations By Maggie Calloway I checked in with Kevin Skelly of Cloverdale Paint to ask what’s new in paint and ended up with a tutorial on the new regulations governing the manufacture of paint. Normally we, the consumer, wouldn’t necessarily be aware of new regulations but this time the information is important, so mega thanks to Kevin! The technology of paint has come a very long way. In 2010 the federal government, in conjunction with the Canadian Paint Coating Association, came out with regulations restricting the VOC (volatile organic compounds) levels in paint. They divided paint into 53 different categories and set VOC limits for each of the categories. “The two common ones the homeowner would recognize are the flat and non-flat paint,” Skelly says. “The legislation doesn’t care if its latex or oil-based paint; it just says for flat paints the limit is 150 grams per litre and for non-flat paint, eggshell, semi-gloss and gloss, the limit is 250 grams per litre. What this means is, as of this month ... manufacturers cannot make any new paint product which does not meet these new standards, although the retailers can sell this paint until they run out.” Skelly says that this shouldn’t really affect homeowners. “This would mostly

affect your painting contractor if you are in the middle of, or planning, a renovation as they traditionally used alkyd paint which no longer meets the federal standard. The beauty of alkyd paint was its ability to cover in one coat, so the painting contractors will have to radically change the way they do business,” he says. “Manufacturers like ourselves have formulated new paint which does a great job while adhering to the new regulations. For the homeowner this means paint with great durability while still having low VOC,” Skelly continues. All this is great news for those of us concerned about the air quality in our homes. Ever wonder how the fashion designers, car companies, paint companies and interior designers come up with their colour palette for the coming seasons? Wonder no more. “I have been following colour trends through a group called The Colour Marketing Group,” says Skelly. “This is a group of hundreds of professionals from many different professions who all need to get the colour forecast right. A mistake for this group has devastating consequences. Can you imagine a car manufacturer painting his new cars teal green when the trend is to grass green?” It’s quite the process in choosing the colours, Skelly says. “We come up with a palette of about

30 to 40 colours we jointly agree colours are going (towards). We deal in very fine detail such as the tone of each colour, not just say red. Is it apple red or rust red? It’s pretty interesting to see experts from so many different backgrounds sharing information and then coming to conclusions. So much depends on getting everything right.” And the answer to what colour trends we can expect? Warm colours across the country are on trend, except in some ethnic populations of Vancouver where bright primary colours are very popular.

Ready your lawn for winter Though spring and summer are often seen as the primary seasons for lawn care, fall is a great time to ready a lawn for winter weather. The following tips can help a lawn withstand winter weather and might even make spring lawn care that much easier once the warm weather returns. • Fertilize: Fertilizing in the fall actually helps the lawn come the early spring. Nutrients remain in the soil throughout the winter months, and the lawn will utilize those nutrients once the snow melts and the sun and warmer weather return. • Aerate: Lawns typically become compacted by late summer, making it difficult for the grass to thrive. When fall arrives, aerating the lawn can relieve that compaction by removing plugs or cores of soil from the lawn. Once a law is aerated, the grass roots can spread out and thicken the lawn. It’s good to aerate in the fall when grass roots grow. • Edge the property: Homeowners who live in areas that experience heavy snowfall in the winter might want to edge their lawns in the fall. Edging can eliminate the risk of damaging grass that hangs over curbs and sidewalks when shoveling snow. What’s more, an edged lawn adds aesthetic appeal to the property. • Seed: Fall can be a great time to seed a lawn as well. Overseeding a warm season

lawn in the fall can help a lawn resist diseases throughout the winter. • Rake the leaves promptly: Don’t allow leaves to accumulate on the grass before finally dusting off the rake. If you allow leaves to sit on the lawn too long, they can smother the grass. Don’t allow leaves to reach ankle length.

Planning now for a colourful autumn display Fall is one of the very best times to plant, so why not add at least one of these hardy plants to your garden collection for an autumn show., writes Brian Minter

T

he foliage colour of our garden ornamentals should be simply outstanding every fall. While many gardens will be ablaze with a ‘foliage bonanza’, many others are missing this important seasonal event. It is so easy to choose flowering and ornamental trees that bloom in the spring, but with a little care you can, at the same time, select trees that provide a beautiful fall display as well. Dogwoods are a prime example. ‘Florida’ dogwoods, native to the eastern United States, provide outstanding fall colour. As a rule of thumb, they are shorter and bushier than our natives, making them ideal for screening. The most popular ‘Florida’ is the ‘Rubra’ or ‘Pink Dogwood’. Its masses of dark-pink blossoms in May of each year are a welcome sight. The variety ‘Rainbow’ displays a profusion of rich tri-coloured leaves that provide some of the

most spectacular fall colour. Few sights are as beautiful in autumn as sunshine illuminating these leaves. The many varieties of ‘Kousa’ or Chinese dogwoods extend the blooming period in the spring because they bloom in June and July, when other varieties have finished. They also tolerate quite a bit of shade, which may be of interest for those of you living in heavily treed areas. Their fall leaves are a brilliant, vibrant red with huge edible seed pods hanging like giant raspberries throughout the tree. It is such an interesting plant to have in the garden, and I truly hope that more folks use them. There are many new varieties, some with stunning variegated foliage that also turns amazing colours. Japanese maples certainly lead the pack in the outstanding colour department. The only problem these days is making a choice between the many fine

varieties. One of the finest, ‘Acer griseum’, often called the ‘Paper Bark’ maple because of its arbutus-like peeling red bark, has brilliant red foliage. The ‘Coral Bark’ maple ‘Sango Kaku’ is considered to be one of the most outstanding of all maples. The autumn colour range of red maples is everything from deep burgundy to the most vibrant fire engine red, but don’t overlook the green-leafed varieties, like ‘Osakazuki’, that also offer an incredible range of fall colours. Another unique tree that has not been readily available until the past few years is the ‘Persian Parrotia’. It is a small and rather slow-growing shrub that provides a beautiful display of dense-headed flowers with red stamens surrounded by woolly brown bracts before the leaves open. In fall, the filbert-type leaves turn brilliant scarlet to orange. When the leaves disappear, it reveals quite an interesting smooth grey winter bark that flakes to show intriguing white patches. One of the most fascinating fall trees is the Japanese stewartia. It is a summer bloomer that often carries right on into the fall. The flowers are truly distinctive, starting off as little round white balls

that burst open like a camellia, revealing bright yellow anthers. That’s why it is often referred to as a pseudo-camellia. Those white flowers, combined with foliage that first turns scarlet, then bronze and finally purple, make this tree a wonderful fall specimen. If you’re looking for a colourful tree that is quite resistant to pests, how about the ‘Katsura’ tree or ‘Cercidiphyllum japonicum’. It is a medium-sized tree with attractive round leaves that have a purple tint on their outer rim all summer long. The unusual shape of the leaves and the beautiful yellow to scarlet fall colours certainly make it a great garden plant, especially at this time of year. Its leaves also have a sweet scent of lightly burnt sugar. There is only one tiny problem – it doesn’t hold its fall colour very long. One of my favourite small trees is the little known and unfortunately, seldom planted ‘Sourwood’ tree. Oxydendrum arboreum has multitudes of long creamy white flowers in drooping racemes that add lots of colour to a July and August garden. Almost immediately after flowering, the long narrow leaves turn a brilliant scarlet and last well into the fall. It’s a

beautiful smaller tree for sunny or shady locations. Every garden should have at least one ‘Burning Bush’, and if you only have a small garden, there is a compact form now available. The ‘Euonymus alata’ has dense twiggy branches with interesting corky wings, making it very attractive in winter, but its small deep green leaves turn brilliant orange-red in fall along with hundreds of tiny orange-red fruits. These plants also make a nice deciduous hedge. ‘Enkianthus’ has, perhaps, one of the most attractive fall colours of any flowering shrub. It looks somewhat like a small-leafed rhododendron with red Pieris japonica-like flowers in spring. Its tiny leaves turn brilliant red for the longest time each fall, making it a super addition to any autumn garden. These are a few of the more unique and beautiful plants that deserve a spot in any garden, not only for fall, but also for interesting year round contributions. Fall is one of the very best times to plant, so why not add at least one of these hardy plants to your garden collection for an autumn show. A sunny location and well drained soil creates the best scenario for vibrant fall colour.

Feeling anxious about an uncertain world? Breathe deep Have you ever y thought, “I’ll get gas in the car tomorrow.” Then, tomorrow comes and the price has jumped 10 cents a litre. Ouch. Can’t things stay the same even for a week. I can’t take this uncertainty! Lack of tolerance for uncertainty is one of the main ways to define Rob problem anxiety. LEES It is also one of the cognitive errors that we can make, too. I want you to think about this paradox; is uncertainty not a stable feature of life (along with death and taxes). Yes, there are times that life seems to grind along at a predictable pace. Other times however it seems like the pace of change is phenomenal and chaotic. Anxious people by definition have a low tolerance for uncertainty. The more they know and control, the safer they feel. Control becomes key. Anxious people are often accused of being control freaks. In fact, all they seek is the safety of knowing what to expect. But life gets in the way and we know that we should expect the unexpected. I think this trend has been exaggerated by modern life. The proliferation of media sources, smart phones and social networking may present today’s child with greater variability and uncertainty than children faced when people of my generation were growing up. We should then expect a greater number of children who feel anxious as a result of this uncertainty. The antidote to uncertainty can be found in grounding ourselves in the moment. You can’t be anxious and relaxed at the same time. Anything that induces relaxation tends to chase anxiety away. This leads to the greatest weapon we have for fighting anxiety- deep breathing. I teach a course at UFV about mental health and addictions.

This week when we discussed anxiety disorders, students reminded me of an interesting trend in early childhood education and kinder-

garten. Some of my students work in these areas (then drag themselves to university for evening classes). They report that teachers are

training children to do correct deep breathing and to use this throughout the day whenever the children change activity. Children,

time to put one activity away and transition to another. Children do your breathing; time to get ready for lunch, do your breathing;

time to get ready to go home, again, do your breathing. This repetition gives the child the chance to expel anxious energy and gain a sense

of control over their emotions before they face something new. It might seem simple but my university students Continued: CALM/ p42

enough to remind the children to do it. I was at the hospital recently and it seemed outside of every room, elevator or hallway was a dispenser for disinfecting hands. Breathing in through the nostrils, holding it for a moment, then completely exhaling through the mouth is the equivalent in the mental health world. Adults involved in rais-

ing and shaping kids need to do this for themselves by disciplining themselves to make it a habit for the children they influence. We can’t make the world much less uncertain. We can increase our capacity to cope with it. Dr. Rob Lees is the Community Psychologist for the Ministry for Children and Family Development, in Chilliwack.

Adrenal Fatigue Clinic The adrenal glands are small, flat, half-moon shaped organs that are just above your kidneys. These two glands are responsible for the body responding to stress. Stress on the body can be classified as physical, mental and emotional trauma, infections, excessive coffee consumption, intense heat or cold, hormone imbalances, surgical operations, as well as chronic debilitating conditions or diseases. If you are experiencing any of the following symptoms then your adrenal glands may have stopped working.

Goal scoring greats He only spent one season with the Chiefs, but what a season it was, writes Jacob Bestebroer It’s been more than 20 years since the Chiefs moved to Chilliwack from Richmond, and during that time we’ve seen some incredible goal scorers wearr a Chiefs uniform. Putting together a Top Five list was not easy, but I decided to give it a try.

Chilliwack netminder Mitch Gillam smothers a loose puck as Vernon’s Alex Hagen crashes the crease. Hagen scored once as his Vipers recorded a 4-1 win last Friday at the Wesbild Centre in Vernon. They look to do the same tomorrow night (Friday) at Prospera Centre in Chilliwack. KEVIN MITCHELL/ BLACK PRESS

Vaunted Vipers hand Chiefs first loss

Eric J. Welsh, The Progress The Chilliwack Chiefs get their second earlyseason look at the defending BCHL champs as the Vernon Vipers skate into Prospera Centre Friday night. Puck drop is 7 p.m. as the teams square off for the second time in seven days. The Vipers and Chiefs clashed last Friday at the Wesbild Centre in Vernon, with the Vipers taking a 4-1 decision. Chilliwack native Josh Hansen had the lone goal for the Chiefs with Adam Tambellini, Darren Norwick, Colton Sparrow and Alex Hagen

played pretty well Friday and Udy played pretty good on Saturday,” he said. “And the team was a lot better in Westside. They played with a lot more energy.” Derek Huisman scored his first two goals of the season, including the game winner on a third period power play. Trevor Hills scored his third of the year and Spencer Graboski grabbed his second of the year, with both goals coming in the second period. A weekend split against two of the top teams in the Interior conference had Smyl feeling good about his team Monday morning. At 3-1, they sit fourth in the Interior conference, with three or four games in hand on all the teams above them. For a team that came into the year with low expectations, the Chiefs look like a very capable bunch. If they keep it up, teams will realize this Chiefs crew is

far removed from their Quesnel Millionaire predecessors. “I think there’s always that mind-set where teams think we might be an easy one,” Smyl admitted. “But I also think that will change pretty quick as they look at the results and what we’re doing.” The Vipers are the measuring stick by which all BCHL teams are currently judged, and Smyl expects his team to put its best skate forward tomorrow night. “We can certainly play better than we did last weekend,” he said. Saturday night, the Chiefs see the Powell River Kings for the first time this year. Their first game against a Coastal conference opponent is a tough one as they take on a team that comes into the weekend at 6-2. Puck drop for that one is 7 p.m. and you can catch a weekend wrap in the Tuesday Progress sports section.

No. 5 Jeremy Jackson – He only spentt one season with the Chiefs but what a season it was. In his first game with the Chiefs, a 10-4 home ice win over the Surrey Eagles, he scored four goals and went on to score 51 times in 49 games. He went L helped lead the Chiefs to the 2000 BCHL championship, and to a bronze medal att the National championship with 63 points in 28 playoff games. No. 4 Joey Potskin – Potskin’s final season of junior hockey was one that wowed all Chiefs fans. Acquired from the Albertaa Junior Hockey League’s Hobbema Hawks Junior (along with linemate Marc Gagnon), the 20-year-old was dangerous on every shift. He finished that season with 60 goals, still a team record, in 57 games. As a prominent sign in the old barn on Corbould stated; ‘Joe Knows Hockey.’ No. 3 David Van Der Gulik – He scored 38 goals in 2001-02 as a member of one off the best offensive lines in Chiefs history, teamed up with Jeff Tambellini and Gabe Gauthier. The previous season he set a Chiefs record that still stands for mostt goals by a rookie, with 42. Not included in these totals is Van Der Gulik’s series winning goal in game six of the 2002 Doyle Cup versus Drayton Valley. No. 2 Wayne Anchicoski - During theirr first two seasons in the league the Chiefs were a goal scoring machine, scoring 666 were goals in 120 games. During those first two seasons the Chiefs purest goal scorer was Wayne Anchicoski who scored 79 of those Wayne goals in 83 games. No. 1 Doug Ast – Ast is the only playerr to score more than 100 goals in a Chiefs uniform. Over three seasons with the Chiefs, beginning as an 18-year-old in 1991, Ast scored 101 goals in 161 games. He had just 11 goals in his rookie season before exploding for 90 (35/55) goals overr the next two years. No Chiefs player has scored more over a two season span. Agree with this list? Disagree?

✞ Obituaries EICHSTADT Werner May 22, 1926- Sept. 21, 2011 Werner Eichstadt passed away suddenly on September 21 at the age of 85. EICHSTADT He was born in Essen, an industrial city in Germany. His father passed away when he was 9 and as a result, his family endured very hard times during the war. He became an apprentice electrician in a large factory and was the income earner for the family at the age of 14. He was active in the Baptist church where he met Charlotte; they were married June 3, 1950. They immigrated to Chilliwack in 1952. They had no money, no jobs and little knowledge of English. He went from job site to job site, asking for work. He developed an excellent reputation as an electrician for honesty and quality work at a fair price. Their son, Ullrich (Oly) was born in 1954. They were members of the Victoria Avenue Baptist church and Werner sang in the choir and taught Sunday School. He loved the outdoors and loved to hike; he volunteered in the Chilliwack Search and Rescue for many years. He took guitar lessons, played tennis, sailed and swam, joined Toastmasters and was involved in a Bible Study group for many years. He and Charlotte moved to Ryder Lake in 1973. He loved his acreage there and built a Bavarian style home. He enjoyed working on his hobby farm, raising beef and organic fruit. He loved to see the deer and bear walking through the pasture; he never tired of the beauty of the mountains and trees around him. His beloved Charlotte went to be with the Lord in February; he missed her so much and often talked about how fortunate they were to have had 60 years together. He leaves behind his son and daughter-in-law, Oly and Doris, and grandsons, David and Matthew. He was a good husband, father and grandfather. He was a man of honour and integrity, hard-working and a good provider. He was known for his cheerful hello and his desire to strike up a friendly conversation wherever he went. A service to honour and celebrate Werner’s life will be held at 3:00 on Saturday, Oct. 29 at the Chilliwack Baptist Church on First Avenue.

ESAU Elizabeth

Elizabeth Esau was born on September 5, 1924 and passed away on October 10, 2011. She was ESAU predeceased by her parents; seven brothers; one sister; daughter Pamela; and grandson Brandon. She leaves to mourn, Peter, her husband of 63 years; son, Gordon (Esther) Esau of Rosedale, BC; daughter, Kathy (Dale) Wiens of Beechy SK; daughter, Joyce (Rod) Burke, of Chilliwack, BC; son-in-law,

Gord Stacey of Princeton, BC; seven grandchildren and eight great grandchildren; sister, Martha (John) Wiebe, of Abbotsford, BC; and two sistersin-law, of Alberta. A memorial service will be held at 1:00pm, Friday, October 14, 2011 at Central Community Church, 46100 Chilliwack Central Rd., Chilliwack. She will be missed by all of us but we also rejoice and praise the Lord that she is in perfect health and peace with our Lord.

a donation may be made to a charity of your choice. Hap’s favorite charities were those that benefited children. The Vancouver Children’s Hospital and the Zajac Ranch were two that were close to his heart.

HEPPNER Abram Dietrich (Hap)

Born December 24th, 1920. Passed away peacefully on October 7, 2011 at the Vancouver General Hospital. Predeceased by husband Ian Maclachlan; brother Ian Campbell and nephew Jamie Campbell. Lovingly survived by sister Mary Mishra (Naren); nephews Gord Campbell (Dereth); John Plane (Angela Fahy); David Plane (Rosemary); nieces Sheila Mishra (Jagannath Chingunde); Veena Mishra; Pratibha Sarkar (Anil); and Goddaughter Marion Campbell. Morag was a strong independent woman who lost her husband after less than one year of marriage. She went on to become an avid historian graduating from UBC in 1972 with an MA thesis on the “Fraser Valley Milk Producers’ Association: Successful Cooperative.” Her last teaching post was at Langara College in Vancouver and in 1983 she retired as head of the History and Political Science Department. One of her highlights as a historian was editing “The Fort Langley Journals - 182730” and seeing this work published in 1998. Morag grew up in Chilliwack, and as an adult purchased a cabin at Cultus Lake from her father. She spent some wonderful years at the lake, and “Argyle” won’t be the same without her. God be with you Auntie Mo. We will miss you terribly. A social gathering to remember Morag will be held at Mountain View Celebration Hall, which is located inside the Mountain View Cemetery, 5445 Fraser Street, Vancouver (entrance at 39th and Fraser) on Friday, October 21, 2011 starting at 2:00 p.m. If so desired, donations may be made in Morag’s name to the Canadian Harambee Education Society (#102B - 9030 King George Highway, Surrey, B.C. V3V 7Y3) or alternatively to a charity of your choice.

Abram Dietrich (Hap) Heppner completed his life’s journey and reached his final destination on October 2, 2011. He was greeted there by his son, Bruce, his first wife, Suzanne, his sister Anne, his faithful dog Katie, and many other family and friends who have gone before him. He began his journey on September 12, 1930 in Birtle, Manitoba, the third of seven children where life in the dust bowl of the prairies taught him from an early age the importance of producing things from the earth. In 1938, the family relocated in the Chilliwack area. Throughout his life, Hap worked primarily in the logging industry, but was eventually able to purchase a farm on Lickman Road. Hap’s motto in life was “If you have too much of something and you don’t share it or give it away, you’ve wasted it”. This belief guided him in celebrating the earth’s bounty and in finding ways to share it with others. Hap took a great deal of enjoyment in his ability to provide for others. He delighted in sending visitors home with a bag of produce from his garden or game he had caught himself. His real life-long passion was being out in the woods. He hunted and fished throughout his life. He was a life member of Chilliwack Fish and Game Club and served as trap chairman for many years. A highlight for him was winning a medal in the BC Summer games in shooting sports. In his later life, Hap became very concerned with passing his knowledge on to others. Although he had no grandchildren of his own, he was an honorary grandpa to many. He thought often about how he could leave a lasting legacy and make the world a better place than he found it. To this end he set up a trust through the Chilliwack School District to provide continuing scholarships for students who wish to study agriculture or wildlife conservation. Hap will be sorely missed by those left behind; his second wife Linda, his daughter Paulette, his son-in-law Harry Peterson, his sisters and brothers, Richard and Dorothy Heppner, Mary and Lloyd Johnston, Ed and Vi Heppner, Frieda and Harry Winkles, Ernie and Leslie Heppner and many friends, nieces and nephews too numerous to mention. A celebration of his life will be held at the Atchelitz Farmers’ Institute Hall, 6542 Lickman Road, Chilliwack on Sunday, October 16, 2011 between 2 and 4 pm. In lieu of flowers,

OAKES Carolaine “Dorothy”

Dorothy passed away suddenly on October 7th, 2011 in her 95th year. She was a lifelong resident of Chilliwack, BC. She and her identical twin sister were born March 8th, 1917 to Carl and Gerda Ratzman, the first twins born in the Chilliwack General Hospital. She grew up in Chilliwack, attending Robertson School and graduating from CHS. Upon graduation she moved to New Westminster and entered Nursing School. Rheumatic fever ended her nursing career after only 6 months. She then moved back to Chilliwack and opened up “The Collegiate” across from the High School and began baking her famous pies for the next two years. The Collegiate remained a favourite CHS hangout for the next forty years and holds many memories for CHS alumni. Dorothy was active in many sports growing up, but basketball was her main one and while playing on the Sardis team she met and married the coach, Lloyd Oakes, on August 24th, 1940. They remained together for 43 years until his death in 1984. Dorothy has 3 children, a daughter, Carla and twin boys, Fred and Gord. Her life revolved around home and family, although she always had a part-time job and helped care for their large vegetable garden, canning and freezing as much as she could. She spent countless hours driving her children to various sporting events; swimming, softball, basketball, and hockey. She loved the Chilliwack Women’s Softball team and followed them on several road trips. Fishing and camping were favourite past-times, especially if it involved going with the grandkids. There were many road trips in the big, yellow van. Dorothy worked for many years as the ticket seller at the Chilliwack Coliseum when

it was first opened in 1958. Shortly thereafter, she began curling, which continued until she was 80 years old. She was very proud to be on the Senior Ladies team that went to the Provincials in 1980. She continued mowing and rototilling her yard until she was 87 and decided it was time to move to an apartment and then on to assisted living at the Waverly Seniors Village where she passed away suddenly. She is survived by her daughter, Carla Furman (Art) of Custer, WA, sons Fred Oakes (Terry) of Princeton, BC and Gord Oakes of Chilliwack, 6 grandchildren, Tyler Regier, Kara Leahy (Ken), Danielle Jorgenson (Tim), Amanda Oakes, Lindsay Oakes, Taylor Oakes (Shoshanna), and 5 great-grandchildren, Carter, Paige, Elliot, Sydney and Rylan. She was predeceased by her husband, Lloyd, her sister, Helen Blair and her brother, Howard Ratzman. A private memorial service is being planned for Saturday, October 15th, 2011 followed by an Open House at the Chilliwack Curling Club, 9291 Corbould Street, Chilliwack, at 3:00 p.m. Thank-you to the staff at the Waverly for their caring attention to our mother’s needs. They have been so supportive. If friends so desire, donations may be made to the BC Heart Association. Mom, Grandma, and Greatgram, you are so missed.

the church choir. She was a life member of the Chilliwack Ladies Curling Club and an honorary member of Club 28, a Sardis women’s organization. Ethel was a choir member for many years at Carman United Church in Sardis and later at Cooke’s Presbyterian Church in Chilliwack. She was a member of the Chilliwack Hospital Service League for over 35 years and a member of the Order of Eastern Star for over 40 years.
