District seeks clarification on playground funds

■ S ILVER F OXES

Katie Bartel The Progress Chilliwack school district is in discussions with the Ministry of Education on whether the playground funding recently allotted to middle schools can be redistributed to elementary schools in need. The school district has nine elementary schools with playgrounds in need of replacing and one in need of upgrading. Yet, the provincial government awarded three Chilliwack middle schools $50,000 each for new playgrounds. “We are in discussions with the ministry about what could possibly happen with that funding,” said district superintendent Michael Audet. “Our director of operations has contacted the ministry to have some further clarification about that decision and to let them know that we don’t have playgrounds at any of our middle schools.” Last spring the Ministry of Education asked districts across B.C. which of their schools didn’t have playgrounds including middle schools. Chilliwack responded, listing its middle schools. Continued: DISTRICT/ p4

Residents of Hampton House walk along Spadina Avenue while taking part in the one-kilometre Silver Fox Block Walk to raise money for the Terry Fox Foundation on Wednesday.

A legal wrangle over disclosure of wiretap evidence delayed the trial of two men charged in an alleged extortion attempt on three Chilliwack men after a marijuana shipment valued at $200,000$400,000 went missing . Vincenzo Lanci, 28, of Delta, and Ronny Krayem, 29, of Langley, were arrested during a meeting with one of the victims at Earl’s restaurant on Nov. 6, 2009, after a two-week investigation involving over 60

members of the Chilliwack RCMP Serious Crime Unit, the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit, the Integrated Gang Task Force, the Vancouver Police Drug Section and the Lower Mainland District Emergency Response Team. The victims’ names cannot be published by order of the court. Two are in their 40s and one is in his 30s, according to an RCMP news release issued at the time of the arrest. The Crown is alleging the three Chilliwack men were operating a trucking business, but had gotten

weeks to come up with the money for the missing marijuana - or else. A relative of the victims went to the police and the investigation began, which included one of the men acting as a police “agent” and the extensive use of telephone wiretaps. The trial, scheduled for two weeks, had just got underway Monday when Ian Donaldson, defence counsel for Krayem, raised the issue of disclosure of the wiretap evidence collected by the RCMP. Donaldson argued that his client

is “entitled” to the unedited transcripts of the police “intercepts” – including access to those of his co-accused – so he could mount a full defence. He submitted that the test for disclosure is whether it could possibly affect the outcome of the trial. “Those (police) who sat down to interview both Krayem and Lanci ... had available for their review and preparation all of the fruits of the investigation,” he said.

The long haul to raise awareness about autism Students to ride their longboards from Chilliwack to North Vancouver Katie Bartel The Progress The every day struggles of autism don’t end when the fundraising walk for Autism Speaks does later this month. That’s why a trio of teenaged longboarders have decided to continue the fundraising efforts for months, maybe even years after, with a new fundraising event Race 4 Reason. Sardis secondary students Erik Eccleston, Kyle Belcourt and Klayten Evanoff are planning to ride their longboards from Chilliwack to North Vancouver, from Nov. 5 to Nov. 7, to raise

funds for Autism Speaks. “There hasn’t been a whole lot of autism awareness in Chilliwack,” said 18-year-old Eccleston. “We have cancer awareness, diabetes awareness, but virtually nothing for autism. “We’re doing this just to get the word out.” The buddies got the idea while hanging out at The Truth skate shop in Vedder. Owners Melissa and Jason Flynn’s 11-year-old daughter Cypris has Asperger’s, a spectrum of autism. The family, along with co-owner Joel Hershey, are participating in Walk Now for Autism Speaks on Sept. 25, and are raising funds through their

shop and through a partnership with Etnies. Eccleston, Belcourt and Evanoff wanted to do more. Evanoff came up with the idea for the ride, wanting to emulate an event similar to Push for the Cure, which is an annual fundraiser for breast cancer awareness that has longboarders and skateboarders riding from Hope to Vancouver, and has raised more than $900,000 in the six years since it was started. This year the plan is to start small, just the three of them, “but if all goes well, we’re going to shoot for Push for the Cure numbers next year,” said Eccleston. The longboarders haven’t yet defined an exact route, but plan to skate from Heritage Park in Chilliwack to 264th the first day,

where they will camp for the night, and then to Cutter Island in North Vancouver the next day. Total kilometres, approximately 106. Eccleston is aware of the challenge before them. Not only will it be the longest distance they have ever rode, they will also be facing unpredictable weather. With the event taking place in November, it could be sunny, raining, or snowing. “I’m completely nervous; it’s definitely going to be a long skate,” he said, adding they’ve already been training for an hour to an hour and a half every day after school along the streets of Chilliwack. “It will be very difficult.” But nothing compared to what people with autism go through every day. Eccleston’s life has been sur-

rounded by autism. His cousin has autism. His best friend’s brother has autism. The Flynns’ daughter has autism. “I’ve seen the every day life of people who are autistic and how hard it can be,” he said. “Even the simplest task can be a massive challenge for someone with autism. “If it does snow [for the ride] maybe people will see that we are doing something very hard for a good cause, and maybe they’ll take a look at their own lives and compare it to those with autism.” For more information, visit the Facebook page Race 4 Reason.

Training room named for firefighter Unsworth light

delay out of city hands: councillor

Jennifer Feinberg The Progress

Retired fire chief Dick Armitage, seen here with wife Evelyn, and grandson Brent Anderson, was honoured Monday night at Fire Hall No. 4 in Sardis for his 36 years of work with the Chilliwack Fire Department. A training room at the Sardis fire hall was named after Armitage and featured two plaques outside the door. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

naming comes on the heels of the just released history book, Chilliwack Fire Department 1906 - 2006 The First 100, in which his services was chronicled as well. "We were excited to learn they are naming a room after him at the Sardis fire hall," said his wife, Evelyn Armitage. "Dick was blown away when he found out. It's such an honour." A special presentation at the hall took place Monday night. While Armitage was still

in the department, his wife collected three scrapbooks worth of information and memorabilia to do with the activities of the firefighters, which she later donated for the book project. "We are hoping some of that information made it into the new book," she said. Some of their other family members are also serving in the department, including their son-in-law, Barry Anderson, and their grandson, Brent Anderson. His dad was a dispatcher downtown.

"We think it's pretty neat that there's a family connection," she said. It's not a coincidence that there is a history of service in the family, according to the fire chief. "I think it speaks to not only how individually committed the person was, but also how the fire department was portrayed as something important to belong to," he said. "I don't think it's an accident." jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/CHWKjourno

The traffic light installation delay at Unsworth Road and Keith Wilson Road is not the city’s fault, says city Coun. Stewart McLean. In a phone interview with The Progress, McLean said he understood the growing frustration from parents with children attending Unsworth elementary who have been requesting a traffic light installed at the intersection for years. But the city’s hands are tied, he said. City council approved a traffic light installation at the intersection in the spring, and city officials sent a letter to the school shortly after indicating the installation would take place during the summer or early fall months. Last month The Progress learned the project had been delayed due to the city requiring extra land on Keith Wilson Road in order to widen the road for sidewalks, curbs and gutters to be installed with the light. The city is still in negotiations with property owners for the land acquisition. “In order to put the light and sidewalk in that’s needed there at that intersection, we needed to acquire a small strip of property which we don’t own,” said McLean, chair of the city’s transportation committee. “That’s been the hold up. It’s not the city holding it up. Until we can finalize the bits of property we need, we can’t go ahead with the project.” Still, the installation, along with three other traffic light installations approved for this year, have all gone out to tender, “so that we will be ready to go with the work that needs to be done as soon as we have that land acquisition sorted out,” said McLean. “We’re trying to get it done as soon as possible, we know the issues there ... but it’s hard for some people to understand that we can’t just go and plunk a light in there. It’s more complicated than that.” Continued: LIGHT/ p18

He served the Sardis fire hall for decades. Richard 'Dick' Armitage became a volunteer member of the Sardis fire hall in 1956 when it was located on Knight Road, and served as its brigade chief for years. Some of the current members of the fire hall approached the brass at the Chilliwack Fire Department, seeking a special way to mark his considerable contributions. The training room at the Sardis fire hall was officially renamed the Dick Armitage room in his honour this week, confirmed Chilliwack Fire Chief Rick Ryall. "It's just a way of recognizing his incredible contribution and commitment to the fire department," he said. "That's a huge amount of time, and many of those years he served as brigade chief, and all in a volunteer capacity." Armitage, 81, a retired butcher, served the department for 36 years until 1992, as a volunteer firefighter and brigade chief. His butcher shop was located next door to the fire hall at one point. "All of our volunteer and paid-on-call members make a huge commitment and are a huge part of the department," he said. Consequently, they were "more than happy" to follow through on the members' recommendation and "make this happen," Ryall said. The honour and the room

An anonymous letter about a 10-year-old Chilliwack girl who went missing more than 28 years ago has generated some public tips and calls - but the author of the letter has not come forward yet. “We’re still gathering some tips and we’re following up on them,” RCMP Sgt. Graham de la Gorgendiere said Wednesday. “We still haven’t advanced the investigation significantly yet,” he added, “but we’re still hopeful something will happen.” Jo-Anne Pedersen was a friendly, outgoing, 10-year-old when she simply vanished one night while waiting outside a convenience store in Vedder Crossing for a ride home. Nearly 29 years ago. But Chilliwack RCMP refuse to give up on the case, believing that somewhere out there somebody knows something that could solve the mystery and end a mother’s grief.

seen talking to Jo-Anne at the phone booth where she made the call home at about 8:20 p.m. on Feb. 19, 1983. Suspicion initially fell on this man, but police investigators came to believe the man was actually trying to help the little girl. So, three years ago, the RCMP prepared a re-enactment of the disappearance, hoping the mystery man would come forward with information that would lead to Jo-Anne’s whereabouts. But nothing came of that effort, despite the pleas of Pedersen’s grieving mother Angela. “I have suffered so much through the

years,” she said in a statement video-taped at the time. Now a letter has come to the Chilliwack RCMP, hand-written and unsigned, but with “significant” information that leads police to believe it’s not a hoax and the author may know more. “That’s why we’re pleading ... for this person to come forward,” Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said. Pedersen was walking home with her sister and cousin when they got into an argument, and the older girls ran home ahead of her. Finding the door locked when she got home, Pedersen went to the nearby Penny

Pincher store at Watson Road and Vedder Road to call her mother. The store clerk let Pedersen use the store phone, but she didn’t know the telephone number where her mother was, so she went outside to call the operator on a pay phone. She talked to her stepfather, but when he and her mother arrived at the Penny Pincher about half an hour later, Jo-Anne was nowhere to be seen.

She hasn’t been seen since. “We don’t know what prompted this (letter),” Hollingsworth said. “We’re just interested in finding out more.” Anyone with information about the investigation or the letter is asked to call Const. Justine Hayward at the Chilliwack RCMP’s serious crime unit at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-2228477. rfreeman@theprogress.com twitter.com/paperboy2

However, Crown counsel Henry Waldock said he believed the matter was settled at a pre-trial conference, and the “surprise application” for disclosure of thousands of pages of transcripts jeopardized the trial proceeding as planned with 30 witnesses scheduled to testify.

More importantly, he felt constrained by provisions in the criminal code intended to protect innocent third-parties whose identities might be disclosed to the accused, if the police intercepts were released unedited to their lawyers. Waldock respectfully refused to release the information without an order from the court, but agreed to an “undertaking” by all three counsel which would define, to the satisfaction of all, how that order is implemented. Judge Russell McKay made the order late Tuesday, and the three lawyers began drafting the undertaking.

The disclosure issue arose after testimony by RCMP Sgt. Graham de la Gorgendiere, who was in charge of the serious crime unit, detailed how the police investigation was organized. He said the extortion complaint was received Oct. 24 and a team assembled the next day “to assess what kind of danger (the three men) were in at the time.” Police surveillance started Oct. 29, he said, and authorization for the wiretaps was obtained the next day. One of the complainants interviewed by police was initially “concerned about get-

ting himself in trouble,” de la Gorgendiere said, because of his involvement in growing marijuana. But the complainant was “scared” because “serious threats” had been made on his life, de la Gorgendiere said. “I felt he was leaving out information at the beginning, but as the interview went on he answered all my questions,” he said. The trial is expected to continue this week, followed by a week-long break, and then resume for another week. rfreeman@theprogress.com twitter.com/paperboy2

District hopes funds can be redirected to elementary playgrounds

The ministry then inquired as to which of their schools had playgrounds in need of upgrades. Chilliwack sent a list of 10 elementary schools; nine in need of replacement and one in need of upgrades. Two weeks ago they were notified that G.W. Graham middle secondary, Vedder middle and Rosedale traditional were selected for the new playgrounds.

When contacted by The Progress last week, district officials, as well as elementary school parents, were confused as to why G.W. Graham and Vedder middle would be chosen. (Rosedale traditional made sense as it will be a kindergarten to Grade 9 school come the new year.) Audet said no decisions regarding the funding have yet been made, and that the district may not be able to redistribute the funding at all. “Right now, what we’re trying to do is

clarify and eliminate the confusion,” he said. Schools in need of playground replacement include Bernard elementary, Cheam elementary, Central elementary, East Chilliwack elementary, FG Leary elementary, Little Mountain elementary, McCammon elementary and Sardis elementary. Unsworth elementary’s playground requires equipment upgrades. kbartel@theprogress.com twitter.com/schoolscribe33

“I wished I had gone sooner!”

Raw milk dispute still simmering Robert Freeman The Progress Health protection officials at the Fraser Health Authority are silent so far on what action will be taken, if any, after a search was conducted of a Chilliwack farm last month where unpasteurized milk is being distributed to members of a “cowshare” operation. But Gordon Watson, a co-founder of the farm at the centre of the “raw milk” controversy in B.C., said he is considering legal action against the health authority for “misleading” a justice of the peace to obtain the search warrant. “It’s not about whether somebody’s ever got sick from our milk,” he said, but protecting the province’s dairy industry. Watson is also questioning why a regulation of the Milk Industry Act that provided for the sale of raw milk “from approved raw milk dairy farms” has been repealed. He is asking Abbotsford-South MLA John van Dongen, former B.C.

Invisible.

Agriculture Minister, for a meeting to “discuss how this untenable situation can be resolved quite easily.” “Your administration would then be seen as listening to the people, rather than cobbling-together laws to suit corporate interests,” he said in the email. van Dongen did not respond to a Progress request for comment. A ministry spokesperson said the regulation was repealed in June to ensure the Milk Industry Act is “consistent with a regulation” of the Public Health Act that describes human consumption of milk unpasteurized by a licenced dairy plant as a “health hazard.” The act bans the sale of raw milk for that reason. Watson said it is “preposterous to change an act because of a regulation” and pointed out that regulations can be amended without a vote by elected MLAs. NDP agriculture critic Lana Popham also did not return Progress calls for comment.

Wearing hearing aids is not new to me as I’ve had them for close to eight years. I had been reading about the newer technology and smaller hearing aids that are now available, but I was hesitant to go through the process of getting new ones. The last pair I got took weeks of adjusting, screeching, not a pleasant experience. Once I got them tweaked they seem to do the trick. Although I didn’t purchase my Àrst pair at Crystal Hearing Centre I had heard good things about them, so I went in and explained that I might want to buy new hearing aids. The no pressure approach and the new technology of my “in the ear” hearing aids made the purchase easy and hassle free. I wish I would have gone earlier! The best thing was the tweaking process was almost non-existent and there is no old screeching in my ear anymore. If you have older hearing aids, don’t waste time, get in and see the professionals at Crystal Hearing Centre today! Walter M.

Sockeye salmon numbers ‘pretty positive’

WALMART CORRECTION NOTICE For our flyer effective Sept. 9 - 15/11. Page 15 – Flyer/ Page 6 – George Flyer: The Tricot Flatback Knit Tops (#30084397/8/9) will not be available.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.

Jeff Nagel Black Press An estimated 4.5 million sockeye salmon are returning to the Fraser River system this summer and the run size has fishery managers cautiously optimistic about the survival of the iconic fish. Granted, it’s a tiny fraction of the record 30 million sockeye that returned last year. But sockeye run on a fouryear cycle, so managers aren’t comparing this run against last year – which was the high end of the cycle and was further amplified by mysteriously favourable ocean conditions. Instead, Pacific Salmon Commission chief biologist Mike Lapointe notes these salmon are the spawn of the sockeye that migrated back in 2007 – a year when less than two million sockeye returned and the fishery was shut down. That was the start of three years of similarly low returns that led the federal government to appoint the Cohen Commission to investigate the decline. “The sockeye run is certainly better than forecast,” Lapointe said, noting it was expected to be as low as 3.1 million. To now see more than twice as many sockeye four years

later is “pretty positive” and might be the beginning of a turnaround for the runs that migrate on this part of the cycle, Lapointe said. Unlike 2007, this year’s return has allowed a fishery while ensuring enough salmon get upriver to spawn. An estimated 1.6 million sockeye have been caught, including 790,000 by aboriginal fisheries, 432,000 by Canadian commercial boats and 265,000 by U.S. fishermen.

A quarter of the incoming sockeye – 1.1 million salmon – are headed for Harrison Lake. “It’s continuing to have really good returns and do its own thing,” Lapointe said of Harrison sockeye. The Cohen Inquiry has heard evidence that the Harrison run spends less time in freshwater and migrates around the west side of Vancouver Island. Most other Fraser-bound sockeye tend to go around the east side

where they pass by fish farms that activists blame for spreading disease or parasites. An estimated 17.5 million pink salmon are also returning this year. Lapointe said increased demand and higher prices for the traditionally lower value salmon has prompted more commercial fishing for them than usual. Nearly six million pinks have now been caught, he said.

Search continues for missing fisherman A search of the Fraser River continued yesterday morning after a fisherman was swept away Monday evening, just days after a similar incident nearly cost a man his life at the same spot. Chilliwack RCMP say three men were fishing in the Peg Leg area on the Fraser River when one man

lost his balance and fell into the water. As the two men attempted to rescue the man, they too fell into the water. Two of the men made it to shore while the other was unable to retrieve a life jacket that was thrown to him. “This is the second time in two weeks that

this area has been responsible for lost fishermen,” said Cst. Tracy Wolbeck. “It’s ver y tragic and upsetting for ever yone involved in the search.” The RCMP dive team was called out but were unable to search due to the strong current in the water. The RCMP, air ser vices, and search and rescue

continue their search. Search and rescue has a boat in the Mission area in the event the man surfaces. “The river conditions are unfortunate-

ly not conducive to a water search which is why Air Services is being utilized,” said Wolbeck. No names have been released.

Homework for parents The carefree days of summer are coming to an end and with the return to school comes the dreaded homework. What is homework and how much should a child get each day? These are common questions and are difficult to answer because teachers and parents often differ on homework and its purpose. Surveys have found many parents are worried that homework eats into family time and getting kids to do it is stressful. Although some parents appreciate the structure homework provides, others think it gets in the way of sports and other activities, and delays bedtime. Teachers don’t agree on the value of homework, either. Some educators view it as a way to extend learning; others see it as important for mastering skills like math or a new language; and yet others think it’s a waste of time. How much homework is sent home entirely depends on the teacher as their are no policies on homework at the district or provincial level. There is, however, a growing consensus that homework shouldn’t be just busy work but should help children make connections and deepen their understanding of classroom lessons. For example, colouring a Xeroxed map could be considered busy work but putting together a photo collage or making a diorama could enrich a child’s understanding of a country. Many teachers are moving towards project-based learning, in which students come up with a project of inquiry, such as measuring the value of a local stream, and then study it from all angles. This would be a case where homework is useful as students get to work on a project of their own choosing. There are many resources for parents but it’s not always obvious where to go and what to do about this topic. Learn Now BC (www. learnnowbc.ca/services/homeworkhelp.aspx) is one such resource. But most parents will have to use their best judgement when it comes to homework. If they think the quantity appears to outweigh the quality, it may be time to make a phone call. ~ Black Press

Private power producers plead their case VICTORIA – B.C.’s private power producers held a news conference here in the capital last week, to plead with the B.C. government not to back down from its target of self-sufficiency in clean energy by 2016. The review panel looking at BC Hydro rates recommended that one way the utility might save money would be to change the definition of self-sufficiency. Currently that means having enough domestic clean electricity supply even in low water years. The B.C. Clean Energy Association was supported by University of Victoria climate scientist Andrew Weaver, who wants B.C. to continue to develop its unique clean energy resources. That will reduce BC Hydro’s reliance on the open electricity market, and help to reduce demand for further coal and natural gas generation.

Weaver says people still skeptical about climate change should check out the current state of Arctic sea ice. It has retreated drastically again this summer and may reach an even smaller size than it did in 2007, which was the biggest melt since satellite records became available in 1979. The five greatest ice retreats have been in the Tom past five years. FLETCHER The U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Centre reported Sept. 6 that both the Northwest Passage through Canada’s Arctic and the sea route north of Russia “appear to be open.” Another supporter is Judith Sayers, a former chief from Nuu-Chah-Nulth territor y on

Vancouver Island, who now teaches aboriginal law at the University of Victoria. She talked about how a small hydro power project near Port Alberni allowed her people to learn business, with a light footprint on land recovering from a century of industrial logging. And she said that more than half of the First Nations in B.C. now have some interest in a power project. Association president Paul Kariya explained how critics, notably the NDP’s John Horgan, manipulate rate figures to create an impression that independent power is hugely overpriced. One out of three proposals never makes it to production. B.C.’s second wind farm, the Dokie project near Chetwynd, went broke, then was taken over and completed by Plutonic Power Corp and General Electric. Here’s an indication of how quickly the clean energy field

is evolving: This year Plutonic merged with Magma Energy Corp., which has geothermal assets in Iceland and Nevada. The merged company, Alterra Power Corp., has backed away from the vast Bute Inlet run-of-river proposal on the B.C. coast, but its nearby East Toba and Montrose river generators and the Dokie wind farm have performed better than expected. The Bute project won’t go anywhere until the North American power market changes dramatically. Currently the market is low, due mainly to an abundance of cheap natural gas and government-subsidized wind power in the U.S. Horgan claims private investment is a nefarious scheme to create a “parallel generating system” for private profit. That seems to be his key criterion for acceptable small hydro: as long as nobody

makes a profit. Professional environmentalists claim rivers have been destroyed. Their favourite villain, Ashlu Creek near Squamish, has been running smoothly for nearly two years, its critics silenced. A new run-of-river cluster around Harrison Lake has energized two remote native villages. I’ve seen these things, from construction stage to mature operation. If that’s your idea of devastation, you should get out more, and acquaint yourself with the history of logging in particular. And if you’re going to insinuate that this is political corruption, as Horgan does, you need a better case than the flimsy one he has presented so far.

Illiteracy: Canada’s inconvenient truth logical awakening; It’s an acquired skill. Reading problems start early, and they do not go away without a fight. If kids do not learn to read by 3rd grade, they’re educationally dead. The most fundamental responsibility of schools is teaching kids to read, yet nearly 30 per cent of 3rd graders fail to read even at the basic level. By high school, 3 in 10 do not graduate fully on time.

Tax separation I am very happy that the HST was defeated, because I am much opposed to have the federal government meddling in provincial affairs, especially when it has to do with taxation. Furthermore, the Canadian constitution states in Section 92 that the provinces have the exclusive right for direct taxation for provincial purposes. As far as I know, the province of Quebec is the only province in Canada, that has the moral strength to live by that. It is my hope that our provincial government will have the fortitude to spend our money wisely. Ejnar Iversen.

As it stands, reading instruction in our schools is like a game of musical chairs where a third of the players lose their seats even before the music starts. Public schools repeat proven failure.

It’s not your parent’s roller derby

9/11H JD15

DO YOU WANT…

mazombie’s spider-like legs take long strides as she steps over a pile of downed victims. Ms. Shell Shockk slams into a woman who’s approaching from behind and instantly knocks her to the ground. Tiki TimeBomb ducks and dodges her enemies as one after another they try unsuccessfully to hit her off her feet. No, this isn’t a sci-fi zombie attack movie with robots and explosions. This is roller derby. And it’s the sport I’ve been involved with for more than five years – the strange hobby I’ve been deeply committed to, especially over the last two years since I’ve been with Vancouver’s Terminal City Rollergirls (TCRG). I’d never played sports before joining roller derby. I hated PE class in school and was far too nervous and lacked the confidence to be on a sports team as a kid. But roller derby was different. The fact that it is played on roller skates (not inline skates) piqued my interest, so I joined and soon learned what flattrack roller derby was all about. For those of you with old school roller derby memories, I would like to point out that today’s roller derby is not like it was in the ‘70s. There’s no elbow-throwing (that’s a penalty), there’s no tripping (also a penalty), and there’s no punching or fighting (that would be an expulsion). Roller derby is a legitimate, hard-hitting, full-contact sport consisting of athleticism, strategy and dedication — and a whole lot of fun. Last year I was drafted to the TCRG’s Faster Pussycats — a frisky team of skaters with serious interests in grammar, arts, computers, math, first aid and potluck dinners. It was the

nerd team, and I fit right in. On the track my name is Hydro-Jenna Bomb, or H-Bomb for short. Amazombie, Ms. Shell Shockk and Tiki TimeBomb are all on my team. We also have 8-Mean Wheeler, Mary Queen of Shotz, and IonA BeerWagon. In the world of derby, everyone has a nickname and that’s what you’re known as to your team, your coaches and your league. When I joined the Pussycats in 2010, they had Jenna not yet won a TCRG league HAUCK game. They were always in last place, always the team that could be beat. During that season (my rookie year on the team) we continued to lose every single league game. But that didn’t matter. We made goals at the beginning of the year, one of which was to win an inter-league game. We succeeded. This year we made different goals — we wanted to win an intra-league game. Again, we succeeded. The first house team we played and beat was the new, rookie-heavy gang called Public Frenemy. We even shut them out in the first period, a first in TCRG history. But it didn’t stop there. We played and won every game this year leading up to the championship. We were undefeated and there was a good reason for it. We worked hard for eight months to improve as a team and to perfect our game. With two or three onskate practices a week, in addition to several off-skate exercises, we built up our skat-

ing skills and our fitness levels. We focussed more on game strategy and how to be smart on the track. Championship game day arrived this past weekend, on Sept. 10, and we were playing against (will you believe?) rookie team Public Frenemy. They too had worked incredibly hard to get to the same spot as us Pussycats. But we weren’t going to back down. After winning the team introduction (by audience applause), featuring a spectacular and well-synchronized figure-eight movement to the tune of Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believing’, and winning the crowd’s hearts, we won the championship game. We, the Faster Pussycats, who had never won a league game in TCRG’s five years of existence until this year, won the championship trophy. We wanted it, and we deserved it. In the two years I’ve been a Pussycat, never once did my team let one another down. Never once did a teammate disrespect another teammate. Never once did we argue. We simply worked hard and fought together to earn what was rightfully ours, the Mercury Shield. And just like the Stanley Cup, we each took a turn hoisting it proudly above our heads as we skated around the arena Saturday night. That night, I’m sure each of my fellow cats thought about our journey of building a team with zero wins to a team with zero losses. Going from underdogs to cats with the upper paw sure feels great.

Nothing seized in search of raw milk farm But Gwen O’Mahony, a local NDP candidate

MILK from p5

5-09F CF1

in past provincial and federal elections, said she is proud of Canada’s health and safety standards, “but there has to be allowance, especially in today’s market for consumer choice, especially when it comes to organic or raw foods.” “If the tobacco industry were subject to the same scrutiny as the B.C. raw milk producers, it would be illegal to sell cigarettes,” she said. An FHA spokesman told The Progress last month that nothing was seized during the Aug. 25 search of the farm on Prairie Central Road, but pictures taken were being reviewed to determine if a permanent court injunction issued last year is being obeyed by the current farm owner. The injunction banned distribution of raw milk, but Watson said the “assets” of the farm are being distributed to “cowshare” members - not as food, but as a line of cosmetics called Enzymatic Bath Lotion.

Preparing food from around the world is a family tradition at the Stephany household in Chilliwack. So it wasn’t really a stretch for Erik Stephany, 15, to tackle the tantalizing topic, and wax eloquent for a creative writing contest. He found out recently he took the top honours in the Langley International Festival Competition, for his piece entitled Culture on a Plate. Stephany was awarded a $1,000 prize and a trophy by competition organizers, and the cash prize is going toward his burgeoning magic career and auditions for the Canada’s Got Talent show. In the teen’s free verse poem, he explains that dinner is a “journey� where he and his family to experience cultures as yet unexplored — through the vehicle of different cuisines. “We like to immerse ourselves in other cultures to better understand people we live with in this world,� he says. The idea for Culture on a Plate just came to him in a flash. “One of my favourite things in the world is food so it seemed to work out perfectly.� Dinner is an activity everyone takes part in, and when his dad

Cotton candy, the carnival and copious amounts of corn on the cob. There are a few of our favourite things, and they’ll all be a part of this year’s Agassiz Fall Fair. This will be the 107th Fall Fair and 63rd Corn Festival, reminding us all that there is a long agricultural history in this area. So, in between all the rides, entertainment and delicious food, take some of your weekend to learn a little about the local farming community. For example, the crowning of Corn King is not just about the crown. This is an honour handed out each year, and it’s one based on science and thorough judging by a panel of professionals. The

Free shuttle at Agassiz Fall Fair FAIR from p19 Entertainment runs all day on stage, including Darryl Weyman’s tribute to Johnny Cash and local singer/songwriter Adam Briscoe. Admission to the fair is $2 on Friday night, $8 on Saturday. Children pay $3 and children under age five get in free. There is free parking, and for the first r, a free shuttle is being offered to and from the Agassiz Fall Fair. The shuttle will run between two churches on Morrow Road and the fairgrounds. Parking will be available at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church and the Agassiz Christian Reformed Church. Fair Director Ken Schwaerzle says he hopes people will use the shuttle, as it could help cut down on the traffic in town during the busiest times of the fair, between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. It will also cut down on the number of vehicles trying to find parking along Pioneer Avenue at the train tracks. “Some people, including myself, hate to park along the way when it’s so close,” Schwaerzle says. For others, the walk to the fairgrounds may be too far from home. “But grabbing a shuttle will be easier,” he says, with the added bonus of being dropped off right at the fair’s main entrance. “It will be easier for some people to just walk out to Morrow Road and get on the shuttle there.” There is no cost to ride the shuttle, which will be making its rounds between the Morrow Road churches and the fair on Saturday between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. For more information, call 604-796-3246.

Hanging around playing video games may sound like fun, but it is also part of a University of the Fraser Valley research project focused on kids with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. UFV has been running FAST Club, an after-school motorskills program for children with FASD for the past three years. New this year is an after-school video game program called BrainGamers Club. Both projects have a mission of helping children tap into their inner strengths with regards to their motor skills and gaming skills, and investigating whether the impacts of these activities cross over into other areas. FAST Club is almost full for this year, but there is still room for more children in the winter session of the new BrainGamers Club, which runs for 24 sessions, twice a week from Januar y until April. “A typical approach to treating children with FASD involves focusing

The only way the child will be able to fix the screen will be by altering the electrical output of the brain. We’re hoping that over time if the brain patterns change, we’ll see some positive behavioural outcomes, as has been the case in studies of children with other developmental disabilities,� says Bertram. While the kinesiologists and other scientists involved in the program are interested in research outcomes, for the participating children, it’s just plain fun. “There are very few programs offered just for kids with an FASD diagnosis,� says Alison Pritchard-Orr, another member of the UFV research team. “This is a university-run project where the children get to work with enthusiastic university students who also enjoy the program. It’s a definite plus for them to get this kind of attention. And the activities they do are based on their

Keith Ollenberger: Building homes around the world I pulled up to the Log Homes Canada works yard, a large, expansive area on the Tzeachten Reserve, and felt right at home. My father’s entire working life in Canada had been with the forest industry so the sight of logs, the sound of a chain saw in the distance and the smell of freshly debarked lumber was familiar to me. I was warmly greeted by Keith Ollenberger and we went inside the lunch room where a beautiful cat sat, purring contentedly. For a moment, I didn’t know whether I should start the interview or stop temporarily to pet and greet my new-found, fury friend. I decided to do both and we continued. eith is a man of depth, of profound knowledge and he has a pure heart of gold. What a treat it was to take some time away from my daily, hectic schedule and just visit. Keith grew up on a strawberry farm

K

in Langley. He was a rather sickly child, having almost died as a baby. “I was very anaemic and weak. My father was told that I should drink dry, grape wine with no sugar and from the time that I was three until I was 10, Ana I had one MACEDO glass a day and my iron content did go up. Our house burnt down when I was 10 and we lost the wine cellar and that was the end of that,” he explained, with a smile. His parents eventually sold their farm and moved to Golden, but Keith remained in Aldergrove in order to finish his schooling. “When I 16, I rode the train to Valemount to work for Dawson Construction. Dad was working there and they needed some

young students for the summer; setting chokers and clearing land for the new highway. I was making $2.70 an hour and I thought that I had the world by the tail,” he said, with fond recollection. His final pay cheque was for $370 and when he returned to Aldergrove after the summer, he bought a 1955, Mercury, 2-door hard top. “I put mags on the car and painted it white and mauve so that when I went back to school I could be somebody,” he laughed. He lived with his sister while finishing up high school and paid for his room and board. “I went to school and worked seven days a week on a chicken farm to pay my way and graduated from Aldergrove Senior High. After graduation, I continued working on the chicken farm for the next two years and then decided to buy my own truck to haul chickens to the slaughter house,” he

Blackwood Industries in Abbotsford where for the next seven years he drove a tractor trailer, picking up lumber and hardware supplies. “I then got the bug to go north and moved to 100 Mile House. I have always loved the outdoors and it was where I wanted to be.” Nestled on the Fraser Plateau between the heights of the Coastal and Rocky mountain ranges, the community was a perfect fit for a man who thrived in an area known for its rustic charm, its beautiful lakes and plentiful outdoor activities. For an avid hunter and fisher, like Keith, it was heaven on earth. This is the area where he also built his first log house. “I built it with logs from my own property. I went to get insurance for it and found out just how expensive it was because there was no fire protection. My house was actually in Lone Butte so I started the Volunteer Fire Department there; we built it out of logs and I became the Volunteer Fire Chief for the next 12 years,” he said. It was also here that Keith resolved to build log homes. “I went on a cruise and met my wife, Shelley. I moved back to the coast, where Shelley lived, we got married and we’ve

been building log houses ever since,” he said proudly. Log Homes Canada was born in 1998, an adventure that he shared with his son Colin and their wives, Andrea and Shelley. “We all started the company as equal partners and today we have about 12 employees. Since we started, we’ve sold homes to customers in Germany, Japan, Greece, almost every state in the US, Canada and Israel. We sold the very first log home in Israel and we also built a restaurant there,” he said. From the initial concept and log home floor plan design services to fast shipping and log home kit setup almost anywhere in the world, their product is one of quality and they offer great support and extra service. This has earned them the prestigious BC Export Award and they’ve also received numerous nominations for other awards. Keith loves the ability to work outdoors. “I get the chance to build someone’s dream home and all the homes are different. There’s great variety in what we do and we get paid to travel because two of us go over to set up the homes,” he enthused. While Keith loves building log homes, he has other passions

that run equally as deep. “I’m an absolute NASCAR junkie. Three years ago, for my 60th birthday, Shelley surprised me with a trip to the Las Vegas Speedway. I got to drive a race car for 18 laps. It was an absolute thrill.” ‘Daddy’, as he is known around work, used to hang out at the Langley Speedway in his younger years and fell in love with stock car racing, a love that continues today. Another of Keith’s passions and something that he considers a duty is donating blood. “My sister-inlaw urged me to give blood so I did and in doing so I found out that I have rare blood. I’m AB Rh negative so Canadian Blood Services calls me every 56 days, urging me to donate blood. I’m also passionate about BC Children’s Hospital. It’s all about raising money for the kids and last year, through our various fundraisers, we gave them a cheque for $65,000,” he said, obviously pleased at the endeavour. Keith is living life to the fullest, enjoying each and every day as it comes and trying hard to stay healthy. He enjoys travelling, hunting, fishing and playing golf whenever he can and above all, helping others as much as he can.

Travel BC Ferries eyes sailing, staff reductions

SPECIAL EVENING EVENT featuring

Chris Emery & Larry Finnson creators of Clodhoppers

Tom Fletcher Black Press VICTORIA – Ferry traffic is down this year and is not expected to recover any time soon, so BC Ferries is considering a plan to cut hundreds of sailings to save money. BC Ferries issued its firstquarter results last week, showing a decline of 3.3 per cent in vehicle traffic and 2.9 per cent in passengers, compared to the same quarter last year. That’s a 20-year low for the spring period, and the first year-to-year decline in that quarter in several years. BC Ferries had been expecting that higher costs and lower traffic would lead to a net loss of about $20 million this fiscal year, but revenues have fallen more than expected. “Recently we have seen a further erosion of traffic and we do not anticipate a turnaround in the foreseeable future,� CEO David Hahn said in a statement released for the corporation’s annual meeting in Vancouver. “Therefore the year-end loss could be significantly higher.� A review of all BC Ferries expenditures is underway, look-

ing particularly at capital expenditures and discretionary spending. A hiring freeze and reduced hours for casual staff are likely, but layoffs of full-time staff are not, Hahn said. Premier Christy Clark said last week an ongoing independent review of ferry operations should address “structural problems� in ferry operations. Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom put a cap on ferry fare increases this spring, one of several moves billed as part of Premier Christy Clark’s “fami-

lies first� agenda. Proposed fare increases of up to eight per cent on northern and smaller routes were capped at 4.15 per cent while Gord Macatee, the new B.C. Ferry Commissioner, reviews rates and makes recommendations to the government by early 2012. Lekstrom said the review of ferries will examine the current public subsidy, and legislated rules such as minimum numbers of sailings and a restriction on using revenue from busier routes to subsidize smaller ones.

Celebrating the power of imagination Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Culture Days 2011 will be celebrated with dozens of events at two Chilliwack venues on October 1. It’s the second year of what is becoming a growing national movement to raise the awareness, and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities. Spiderlodge Studios, owned by Rick Genge and Lori Paul, will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 1, to provide a behind-the-scenes look at how they go about making art. The husband-and-wife team is passionate about the arts and the

artistic process, and looking forward to opening their studio on Yale Road East to the public. “We plan to have performances and demonstrations of how we record songs, how to write a song, how to string a guitar and much more,” says Paul. Everything is free and inclusive and accessible to all, and that’s the whole point of Culture Days. The timing of the demos will depend on who shows up that day at Spiderlodge. “Everyone has a birthright to be creative,” says the singer-songwriter and vocal coach. “The challenge is to follow your passion, and then find someone already working in that medium

to learn from.” The other local venue planning celebratory events is the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, where art lovers and families get an entire day, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. to explore the various cultural groups housed in the fabulous facility on Corbould Street. Prepare to use all your senses. It’s an anniversary celebration for the Cultural Centre as well a way to mark Culture Days with interactive and hands-on activities. It’s all about the power of imagination, says organizers of event they’re calling “Explore the Chilliwack Cultural Centre.” It’s also a terrific a way to

meet members of the local arts and cultural community face to face. Chilliwack Academy of Music, Chilliwack Community Arts Council, Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Centre Society, Chilliwack Visual Artists Association, Chilliwack Players Guild, Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra, and BC Registered Music Teachers Association are all teaming up at the Cultch to bring a “Cultural Collaboration” on Culture Days. A scavenger hunt is planned for the kids, as well as a kids’ art installation and art show in the Fine Arts Studio. Check out Vince Makuska’s art exhibition, Nuance, Suggestion

McAllister seeks new path in rocky music business Kurt Langmann Black Press Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a tumultuous decade for the music industry, one in which the traditional business model was turned on its head. The proliferation of music freely distributed on the Internet has devastated the sales of recorded music and many once-strong CD retail chains have either shuttered their doors or downsized and sought out other sources of revenues. This, in turn, has resulted in down-sizing at the major record labels, where the shrinking bottom lines have cut jobs and artist rosters. One of these casualties was Dakona, a band led by Ryan McAllister that had signed a multi-million dollar contract with Madonnaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Maverick Records label. Dakonaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sound was compared favourably with Irish superstars U2 and shortly after recording their debut album and touring extensively to promote it, the axe suddenly fell at Maverick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We caught the tail-

end of that meltdown ten years ago,â&#x20AC;? says McAllister in an interview at his home in Bradner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The whole industry is trying to find its bearings. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an interesting time; everybody thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bigger canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t handle their overheads. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And there is a giant sea of independent musicians on-line, trying to get noticed. But itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had its good sides too; it weeded out the people who werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in it for the right reasons and the people who are left are really passionate about their art.â&#x20AC;? McAllister says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grateful that he was able to invest a big chunk of the money he got from the Maverick deal to install a professional recording studio inside a converted barn on his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s acreage. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taken the knowledge he gleaned from working with the top engineers and producers and parlayed it into building his home-based business at Five Acres Studio. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we were recording at Capitol Studios in L.A. we were spending $15,000 a day, and that

kind of pressure is counter-productive to creativity,â&#x20AC;? says McAllister. He is able to provide this service at considerably less cost at Five Acres and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s engineered and produced albums for local artists such as Daniel Huscroft and Prairie Dance Club, as well as for his own music. This year he released his first solo album, Music for a Rainy Town, as well as another with his trio, Cowboys and Indians. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wanted a (recording studio) space with ambience to it that is a

big step up from the typical home studio,â&#x20AC;? says McAllister. The quality of the studioâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sound is readily evident on McAllisterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solo album, as is the maturity of his songwriting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having kids changes your view,â&#x20AC;? says the 33-year-old father of three pre-schoolers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do miss it a bit, being young and obsessed, but Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m so much happier where Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m at. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Now the real challenge is how many songs can you write about being happily married?â&#x20AC;? he jokes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Songs that are

not too sweet and corny, but authentic and listenable. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shortage of that. Youthful infatuation is so much easier to write about.â&#x20AC;? One of the albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s songs, This Black Heart, has been getting a fair amount of play and it helped put him in the top ten for the Shore (104.3 FM) Song Search contest earlier this year. Bell Tower and River Jordan have also proved popular among his fans, and Mystery White Boy is under consideration for use in the forthcoming documentary movie

about the late singer Jeff Buckley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the oldest song on the album. I wrote it in Toronto just after getting our record deal and first hearing Jeff Buckley. Just a couple days after getting his first CD, Grace, I found out heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d drowned in Memphis,â&#x20AC;? says McAllister. â&#x20AC;&#x153;His mother heard the song and invited me over to dinner (in California) and said she could maybe use it in the movie thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s now in development.â&#x20AC;? Selling songs for use in movies has been a growing niche market

for many musicians and one that McAllister has been pursuing. It was the main thrust of his appearance at the South by South West music festival in Austin, Texas earlier this year, alongside another local colleague, Zaac Pick. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have no delusions of grandeur,â&#x20AC;? McAllister says of the close circle of musical friends he works with. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re blue collar and realize thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not a lot of money to be made. We love it and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enough.â&#x20AC;?

Three simple steps to flat abs NOTICE OF NOMINATION PUBLIC NOTICE is hereby given to the Electors of the Fraser Valley Regional District that nominations for the offices of: 1 - Electoral Area Director – Electoral Area A Boston Bar, North Bend, Canyon Alpine

1 - Electoral Area Director – Electoral Area C Lake Errock, Hemlock Valley, Harrison Mills, Morris Valley, Harrison Lake Watershed

for getting flat abs. Once you are motivated, executing a diet and exercise plan is a piece of cake (low fat, high fibre cake of course!) To get motivated, figure out why you want those flat abs. Imagine h o w Tanja great you SHAW will feel when you can comfortably wear a bikini, zip up your skinny jeans or flex and see a six pack. Maybe your doctor has advised you to lose weight around the midsection to lower your risk of health problems. In the journey to a trim

waistline, there will be barriers to overcome. For example, a friend might try to get you to stray from your diet at a party, or you might not feel like exercising one week. The stronger your ‘why’ is, the more committed you will be to your goal and the easier it will be to overcome the barriers. Step 2: Eat to fuel the muscle and shed the fat. As I mentioned, everybody has abs. What differs between a soft tummy and tight, sexy abs is the body fat hiding the muscle. No amount of sit ups, crunches, leg raises or rides on the ab trainer will do the trick. Shedding abdominal fat requires proper nutrition. To get into the details of a proper eating plan

would require an entire book, but here are some general guidelines: • Clean up your diet: Get rid of the processed foods, sugar, unhealthy fats and ‘white’ foods (white rice, white pasta, white flour). • Eat regularly. Eat four to six times per day. This means you eat breakfast too! • Eat protein and fibre at each meal and snack. • Include healthy fats in your diet (think fatty fish, avocado, heart healthy oils, nuts and seeds). • Stick to proper portion sizes for your goals and activity level. Step 3: Get fit! Combined with a proper eating plan, a full body workout routine is essential to shed body fat and achieve a lean, sculpted midsection. Cardiovascular exercise (such as power walking, running, cycling, or stair climbing) will burn extra calories, contributing to fat loss. Full body strength exercises, such as squats, lunges, push-ups and chin ups will also work to burn extra calories and boost your metabolic rate (also important for fat loss). Finally – and possibly the least important of all – include exercises that target the midsection. Just like any other muscle group, strengthen the abdominals by doing 8-15 reps of an exercise. Doing hundreds of abdominal curls or crunches will only lead to boredom and poor posture. Bicycle crunches, cable rotations, planks and hanging leg raises will do the trick. While there is no magic exercise to achieve that sexy midriff, cleaning up your diet, regular exercise, and the motivation to stick to the program, will get great looking abdominal muscles.

8-11H PR4

2011 GENERAL LOCAL ELECTION ELECTORAL AREA DIRECTORS

I often get asked, what is the best way to “get abs”? Most people are looking for a magic exercise at the end of a workout that would make the abdominal muscles suddenly appear. Everybody has abs. If we didn’t, basic functions such as standing, walking, sitting and turning would be impossible. Whether or not you can see your abdominal muscles is another story. The goal of getting great abs usually differs between men and women. Whether you are a male and are striving for a chiseled six pack, or a woman who wants a toned, bulge-free midriff, follow these three steps. Step 1: Get motivated! This first step is by far the most important step

Jolly Miller Pub’s

E

ach spring, a great many gardeners are upset with withering daffodil and tulip leaves that looked unsightly for such a long period of time. What really worries me, however, are the numerous comments folks have made about not planting bulbs because of their sloppy foliage that can spoil the appearance of an otherwise neat and tidy garden. It would be a shame for any garden to lose these vibrant spring colours, simply because of a few leaves, when there are many ways to overcome the problem. The most obvious solution is to group bulb plantings in pockets where they can make their wonderful display and then die back without disrupting the entire garden. If you can camouflage them among other plants, so much the better. Secondly, by adding copious amounts of sand when you plant the bulbs, they will not only naturalize more easily but will also die back more quickly. The most creative and effective way to enhance a display of spring bulbs is to plant them in combination with shrubs. With a little

imagination, you can come up with great combinations that give your garden a new look, conceal dying foliage and make certain locations work overtime to keep that colour coming. Flowering shrubs are a natural for companion planting with bulbs. I’ve often mentioned the combination of miniature blue Iris reticulata with the ‘Buttercup’ winter hazel (Corylopsis pauciflora), but also try fragrant Daphne mezereum with the crocus ‘Remembrance’. The lavender tones work magic together. Winter heather is a natural for bulb combinations because it flowers from November until late April, and then it flushes out with lots of new growth to screen bulb foliage. Try combining it with some miniature narcissus, like ‘Minnow’, ‘Hawera’ and ‘Jack Snipe’. Early blooming ‘Star Magnolias’ (Magnolia stellata) could be greatly enhanced with an underplanting of white narcissus like ‘Ice Follies’. When the leaves flush out on the magnolia, they would nicely conceal the narcissus leaves. Larger magnolias should not be left out either. ‘Saucer

Magnolias’ (M. soulangiana), that often lose their big blossoms prematurely due to heavy spring winds or rains, would be greatly enhanced by an underplanting of beautiful salmon ‘Angelique’ tulips. Flowering quince looks spectacular in any spring garden, but a surrounding planting of early double tulips would be a real classy touch. Try ‘Peach Blossom’ around the whites and pinks and the yellow ‘Monte Carlo’ around the orange and scarlet varieties. White spiraeas offer all sorts of opportunities with red tulips. Spiraea thunbergii would be a knockout with the early tulip, ‘Red Emperor’. The mid-season ‘Snow Mound’ (S. nipponica tosaensis) would look great with red ‘Darwin’ tulips, and the late-flowering ‘Bridal Wreath’ spirea (S. arquta) would be nice combined with a red lily-flowering tulip. Spiraeas are great for covering up tulip foliage. Don’t forget about broadleafed plants either. One of the most overlooked sun or shade loving plant is the ‘Oregon Grape’ (Mahonia aquifolium). Its yellow flowers and green holly-like

foliage would combine beautifully with the soft yellow narcissus ‘Carlton’. Euonymus ‘Emerald n’ Gold’ and white/ green ‘Gaiety’ provide a wonderful opportunity for tulip planting. Bright coloured early single or trumpet tulips could be underplanted for a delightful effect each spring. If the new growth was left untrimmed, it would cover dying tulip foliage, and then both could be pruned at once to save time. Long-blooming, lowgrowing shrubs like potentillas and dwarf spiraeas offer tremendous potential for daffodil and tulip plantings. The red, white, orange and pink blossoms that begin in late April can provide a neat contrast for late flowering varieties of bulbs, or the green foliage can offer a backdrop, then cover for the flowers and leaves. Hostas and ferns also provide good foliage cover for daffodil and tulip leaves in areas with morning or dappled sunshine. Frankly, the potential for fabulous combinations is unlimited. This fall, please take a new look at the opportunities for using your tulip and narcissus bulbs to enhance your existing trees and shrubs. In doing so, you not only create a new dimension in colour schemes, you can also conceal the foliage that too often can spoil the fresh look of your spring gardens.

The importance of a positive outlook

8 PM OCTOBER

This week’s Perspectives column continues the series on cognitive distortionsunhealthy mental habits that can have a detrimental impact on our overall wellbeing. If you’ve ever heard the phrase “if life gives you lemons; make lemonade” or “is your glass half-full, or half-empty” then you already know the basics of focusing on the negative and discounting the positive. As children, we learn about the world and what to look for from

the adults around us. Imagine back to when you were young and in the back seat while your parent was trying to find a parking spot during a busy Saturday afternoon. Was your parent complaining that the only parking spot was a football field length from the door, or grateful it wasn’t two football fields away? Identifying the choice between appreciating the positive instead of focusing on the negative is a powerful gift to give a

young person. Life is full of balance. Aspects of any experience are good or not so good, but we see what we look for. Marie In narAMOS rative therapy, there is a process called a positive reframe which means to adjust our perspective to focus on the good parts. At first,

Value. Packed. Travel.

reframing a situation in a positive light can feel a bit forced, but like any good habit, practise makes perfect. For example, imagine your child or teen complains about their strict teacher. Someone who discounts the positive and focuses on the negative might say something like, “I can’t believe your teacher gives homework, that’s terrible”. However, a positive reframe could be, “Your teacher must want you to learn a lot this year and do well on the final exam.” Modelling the positive point of view can empower the young person to see the experience in a balanced way. Any comment or situation can be looked at in a more positive or negative light; any experience can be an opportunity to learn and develop if one looks for the opening. Consider something or someone in your life who is a source of negative emotions for you. Try focusing on the silver lining. Maybe the bane of your existence is also the conduit for something positive in your life. A difficult coworker can help inspire you to prepare very well for presentations; a nosy neighbour is better than a security alarm, and a broken down car might give you the opportunity to find a more environmentally friendly way to get about. Our thoughts are powerful. Dr. David Burns, author of the book Feeling Good, outlines the impact of our mental habits in all areas of our mental health and well-being. He notes that the world will definitely feel damp and chilly if you throw cold water over everything. This week, take time to practise noticing the sunshine amongst the clouds in your world, and model a balanced positive attitude to the children and young adults in your life. Marie Amos, MA, Registered Clinical Counsellor, is a Mental Health Therapist with Child and Youth Mental Health of MCFD, Chilliwack.

The Chilliwack

Progress Eric

Welsh 604.702.5572 • sports@theprogress.com

Can Chris be a Blessing for Chiefs offence? Eric J. Welsh, The Progress When Harvey Smyl talks to his Chilliwack Chiefs about going into the dirty areas to score goals, there’s one player who knows exactly what the coach is talking about. Chris Blessing doesn’t mind getting his hands dirty and doesn’t hesitate to go where others fear to tread. That’s how he gets the job done on the ice, and that’s how he gets things done at his summer job. “I’ve always liked the hands-on hard labour jobs the best, because I always feel like I’m getting more out of them,” the 20-year-old said. “My buddy’s dad owns an air conditioning company in Valencia (California), and it’s not an easy job.” Much of Blessing’s work day is spent moving heavy (really, really heavy) AC units in and out of buildings. “Maybe 250 pounds? I have no idea how much they weigh, but they require two people to carry them,” Blessing said. If Blessing’s taking them into a building with an elevator, or a straight-forward entry, no problem. But sometimes, the job can be ridiculously difficult. “The most awkward one I can remember was when we had to get through an attic,” Blessing said. “There was stuff growing up there. Cats. Rodents. We had to clean that up before we put the AC in.” Cats and rodents didn’t bother him much. But there was something else. “There were spiders, and I hate spiders. They’re just so creepy,” he explained. “Have you ever seen the show

Hoarders? That attic was a lot like that. There was a lot of stuff up there, dead and alive.” Even after sweeping away the spiders and getting the AC unit into place, the dirty work isn’t over. “You have to seal it, and you do that with this ... substance,” Blessing said with a frown. “I’m not sure what it’s called, but you’ve got to get your hands in it and make sure all the creases are filled and everything. It’s weird stuff to work with.” After a hard day’s labour, Blessing will retreat to his video game console, popping in some Call of Duty or NHL hockey. Some days he’ll relax with a round at a local golf course. And when it’s time to get back to work, at the job or at the rink, he’s all in with maximum effort. Health permitting. Blessing’s hockey problem in recent times has not been what he can do on the ice, but whether he can get on the ice with any consistency. When he plays, he’s an offensive force to be reckoned with, popping 10 goals and 26 points in 45 games as a BCHL rookie last year. Last season got off to a rough start with a severely separated shoulder. “It was a level two to three that sidelined me about eight weeks,” Blessing said. “It happened in camp where I got a pass along the boards and took a hit. I was off balance when the guy hit me, and my left shoulder just popped out.” Blessing has found this year’s training camp disrupted by another shoulder injury, though this time it’s not nearly as serious. Tomorrow night’s

Chris Blessing hopes to be healthy and thinks he’ll be happy playing for head coach Harvey Smyl and the resurrected Chilliwack Chiefs. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

whenever he has talked about Blessing. “He’s a fast skater, he’s even stronger than he was before, he can shoot a ton and he’ll go into the greasy areas to score,” Smyl said. “80 per cent of the goals in this league are scored from right around the front of the net, and not everyone is willing to go there. But Chris has never been shy about that.” That’s the type of endorsement Blessing loves to hear as he fights his way back into the lineup. This time last year he was a junior A freshman who desperately wanted to make an impact, but couldn’t. One year later, he’s

a veteran who is being counted on as an offensive leader. “I like it a lot because I didn’t like that rookie role much,” Blessing said. “I think I can bring energy on the ice and leadership on the bench. I expect to have a big year and we expect the team to have a big year.” And like most guys skating in the BCHL, Blessing hopes a big year will pave the way to achieving his ultimate goal. “My individual goal is to get a division one scholarship, maybe to the University of Denver,” he said. “I want to help myself and get my school paid for so my parents don’t have

to worry about it.” ● Sports & Stuff in the Chilliwack Mall will be hosting a ‘Meet the Chiefs’ night next Thursday (Sept. 22), starting at 6:30 p.m. That’s two days before the home and regular season opener versus Penticton, giving fans a chance to interact with the players and coaches.

Midgets blitz Bengals and blast Bulldogs MINOR FOOTBALL REPORT: WEEK TWO

Chilliwack’s midget football Giants are unbeaten to start the season following wins

over the Cloverdale Bengals and Cowichan Bulldogs. The locals opened the season with a 31-21 win over the Bengals at Townsend Park. Running backs Brad Esau and Drae Juniper had big days on the ground, and quarterback Cam Bedore hit for some big plays through the air. Special teams were the only sore spot for the Giants, who gave up

some big returns that cost them valuable field position. The Giants took to the road for their second game, hitting the Island for a clash with the Bulldogs. After a long and draining ferry trip, Chilliwack got off to a predictably sluggish start. Cowichan’s first offensive play was a double-pass for a touchdown against a sleepy secondary.

That woke the Giants up, and their offense ran roughshod all over the Cowichan defense. Shifty running back Steven Porcina slashed and dashed all over the field, chewing up big yardage to keep the O moving. Bedore hooked up with fellow rookie Craig Zylstra on two long touchdown tosses. Bedore also found Klay Laroque with a touchdown pass and ran for

one of his own. But for the one play, Chilliwack’s defence was stellar, thwarting Cowichan on a threeplay goal-line stand in the third quarter. Standouts on D were linebackers Brennan Breuker and James Gauthier. The G-men host the North Surrey Bears on Saturday. ● The bantam Blue Giants came up short in

their game against the North Surrey Tigers, losing 28-18. The Giants opened the scoring when Conner Herrmann pushed his way through the Tiger defense for a touchdown early in the first quarter. Filip Horak added a major late in the first half and Kirkland Kennedy scored the final Giants TD early in the fourth quarter, aided by a Ryan Connelly reception that moved Chilliwack into the red zone. The Giants are prepping for their home opener as they host the North Surrey Panthers Saturday afternoon at Townsend Park.

ception set the Knights up in field goal position late in the fourth quarter, and they nailed the kick for the win. Chilliwack’s defense was sound, giving up just a handful of first downs throughout the entire game. Spencer Breslin, Sam Meyers and AJ Sagrott led the D in tackles, with great pass coverage coming from halfback Trevan Kehoe and cornerback Ethan Mastin. Chilliwack’s offense struggled, coughing up the ball three times on interceptions. The Giants play the Langley Bears Saturday in Langley.

● Chilliwack’s junior bantam Red Giants demolished the Mission 9ers in enemy territory last weekend, establishing themselves as a championship contender in the Valley Community Football League. Warren Rogers was the game MVP, but he had plenty of help. Running back Billy Hansen carried six times for 107 yards, adding a couple of tackles on defence. Cameron Betker picked up 72 yards rushing plus a touchdown. Emerson Harvey and his sister Ayden both found the endzone, with Emerson adding five solo tackles on D. Kicker-quar terback Jordan Breuker had a great game with 103 yards on five boots, adding a touchdown on a 26 yard scamper up the left sideline. The Giants host the Abbotsford Falcons at 1 p.m. Saturday at Townsend Park.

● Chilliwack’s peewee Red Giants fought the Mission 9ers to a standstill last weekend, settling for a rare 0-0 draw. Hayden Oraschuk led the offence with four carries for 93 yards. Hudson Har vey caught two passes from quarterback Tommy Janzen, good for 46 yards. Chilliwack’s offence generated 176 total yards. Justin Crooks led the D with six solo tackles and three assists. Riley Egan and Andrew Locke had three interceptions between them. The defence yielded just 164 yards.

● With a final score more suited to hockey than football, the junior bantam Blue Giants lost 3-1 to the Meadow Ridge Knights. Chilliwack’s lone point came on a Tyler Sprott punt that rolled through the endzone, and for the longest time it looked like that single might stand up as the winner. But an untimely inter-

● The atom Blue Giants suffered their second loss of the season at the hands of the reigning provincial finalist Abbotsford Falcons, dropping a 40-18 decision. Running backs Colton Holt and Samuel Mannes each scored touchdowns for the Giants behind great blocking from Jayden Okoth and Noah Kling. On defense, outside linebacker Dhillon Myers picked up two more sacks and several tackles. Defensive tackles Maddy Eyres and Austen Dueck effectively shut down the inside run for the Falcons. The Giants play Saturday at Meadow Ridge.

The B.C. Football Conference Chilliwack Huskers are back home Saturday night, hosting the Langley Rams at Exhibition Stadium. Kickoff is at 7 p.m. as the 0-6 Huskers shoot for their first win of the 2011 season. These two teams met Aug. 27 at Langley’s McLeod Stadium, with the Rams (3-3) winning 46-7.

Chilliwack FC has launched another school soccer academy, unveiling a new program at the Seabird Island Community School in Agassiz. CFC head coach Glenn Wilson said talks started in June, with Diane Janzen taking the lead on the Seabird Island side. “It came together fairly quickly, and I think both sides realize this can be beneficial,” Wilson said. “From our point of view, the First Nations people seem to be passionate about soccer and there’s some raw talent there to work with. I think with good instruction we can see some top end players coming out of there.” The Seabird Island academy will mirror a similar program just launched at Mt. Slesse middle school. James Marshall is the primary coach at Slesse, and he’ll take the reigns in the new program as well, with help from Wilson. On the CFC website, Wilson is looking for donations of lightly used soccer equipment. “I am hoping that there are those in our soccer community who may have used soccer shoes and/or shin pads in good con-

Stingrays stunned Chilliwack’s U-16 Silver Strikers opened their fall soccer season at home last Sunday, bouncing the Semiahmoo Stingrays 1-0. The locals took charge of the game from the start, dominating both ball possession and field position. The girls allowed just five shots on their own net while directing 14 at the beleaguered Stingray keeper. For ward Haley Mainse split the Semiahmoo defence to score the game’s lone goal 15 minutes in, set up beautifully on passes by Kristy Ricard and Breanna Zeswick. Chilliwack hosts their next game Sunday at noon against the North Shore Twisters.

Rapids dump Delta in opener

The new look Chilliwack FC Rapids made their Fraser Valley Soccer League debut last weekend, with games at the Premier, U-21 and masters levels. The Premier squad opened their season Friday night with an impressive 4-1 win over visiting North Delta at Exhibition Stadium. Playing in front of a small but boisterous crowd, the Rapids got two goals from Jaye Amberg, a single from Robbie Fadden and an own-goal from North

Delta. “It was fast-paced and Chilliwack dominated most of the play against a North Delta team that was a top team last year,” said Rapids manager Roop Virk. “It was a good first test, but there’s still a lot of work to be done. The team is on the right track, but they haven’t hit their peak.” The U-21 squad hit the pitch on Saturday, coming up with a 4-3 win over Langley United. Chilliwack never trailed, getting goals from Amberg, Dawson

Lindahl and Adam Wilson along with an own-goal from Langley. “They’ve been practicing with the premier side and it’s making a big difference,” Virk said. “Like the premier side, this isn’t the best the U-21’s can do, but it’s a promising start for them.” The masters team was the only one to suffer a loss, dropping a 3-2 decision to visiting Aldergrove on Sunday. “We had a lot of guys who haven’t played in years,” said Virk. “Hans Kreitner hasn’t played in seven years, but he’s one of the best raw talents we ever had in Chilliwack. He’s been inspired to come out and play again.” The Rapids dominated territorially, but lacked finish around the net. Merv Byers scored

both Chilliwack goals in spectacular fashion. “He actually went through their entire defence twice,” Virk said. The masters crew is on the road this weekend, facing the Surrey FC Caps Friday night in Newton. The U-21 squad is home Friday night at 8 p.m., hosting the Peace Arch Wolves at Exhibition Stadium. The Premier team visits the TWU Titans on Saturday. “We want to really encourage people to come out and watch some of these games,” Virk said. “It’s good soccer and it’s family friendly and we’d love to see two hundred people in the stands when we play.” Get more league info online at www.fraservalleysoccer.com.

Lunachicks score five and blank Breakers The Chilliwack Lunachicks kicked off their inaugural season in the 30+ women’s gold division with an impressive road win. The Lunachicks traveled to Montgomery Park in Vancouver and handed the Breakers a 5-0 defeat. Two minutes after drilling a shot off the crossbar, Andrea Feaver fired a long cross to a charging Jannelle Cavanaugh, who headed the ball into the

Vancouver net for the opening goal. Tamara Soeliner beat the keeper but not the post at the 25 minute mark and the locals carried their slim lead into halftime. The Lunachicks dominated the second half. Six minutes in, Kelly Willmets took a drop pass from Cara Brendzy and launched a 25 footer into the cage. Five minutes later, Jocelyn Hultman converted a Feaver corner kick to give

Chilliwack a 3-0 lead. Brendzy stripped the ball from a Breaker defender to score the fourth Chilliwack goal, and Michelle Julian closed out the scoring when she headed in a nice cross from Andrea Northcott. Lisa Hiemstra got the shutout in goal. The Lunachicks host Langley United Sunday at the Tzeachten Sports field.

✞ Obituaries

(Tiemessen) Sept, 25, 1931 – Sept, 1, 2011 Our mom was born in A m s t e rd a m , Holland. She told us many interesting stories of growing BEUGELING up in Amsterdam during the Second World War. She met and married our father, John Beugeling on March 31, 1951. They had four children while living in Amsterdam and eventually decided to immigrate to Canada, settling in Edmonton, Alberta where their fifth child was born. In the 1960’s they moved to Chilliwack. Mom worked for many years in the restaurant and hospitality field while raising her family. She travelled back to her homeland many times over the years; most recently she took the trip of a lifetime to Africa with her youngest son. She was the hit of many of their adventures in Africa, as ‘elders’ are highly respected in those cultures. This was her dream adventure, and she was able to fulfill it with joy and enthusiasm. She will always be remembered as a fun loving, kind and giving wife, sister, aunt, mother, Oma, great-Oma and friend. Now she is back with the love of her life, John, and we know that they are taking the heavens by storm and dancing once again. We would like to thank all the wonderful nurses and doctors who were a part of her life during these past few months. Predeceased by her husband John, Eva is survived by her children John Jr. (Marianne), Robert (Marlene), Paul (Diana), Astrid (Dave) and Stephen (Elsa); grandchildren, Michelle, Jody (Shawn), Suzanne, Trevor, Jason, Jenny, Amy, Clayton, Christopher, Miranda, Cade, Samantha, Everett, and great-grandson Isaiah. As well as many nieces, nephews and honorary family, Barbara, Wendy and Darrell. A service to celebrate Eva’s life will be held at Henderson’s Funeral Home on September 19 at 10 am. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to the local SPCA where mom found her loving dog, ‘Buddy’ who gave her years of companionship. Mom, we miss you but we know you are at peace.

MURPHY Claudia Margaret

Claudia Margaret Murphy passed away surrounded by her family and into the arms of her MURPHY Heavenly Father on Sept. 12 at the Waverly in Chilliwack, B.C. Claudia was born on March 22, 1938 in Vancouver, B.C. She is survived by her 2 daughters, Charlene Notman and Jeannine Driedger (Glenn) and her 2 grandchildren Sarah and Scott Notman. Claudia was predeceased by her husband Jim in 1999 and her son-in-law Andy in 2009. Claudia was an only child and was doted on by her parents. She loved to dance and worked her way up to prima ballerina. Claudia met her future husband Jim when they both attended Youth for Christ in Vancouver. She worked and volunteered for many years at the YMCA in the childcare area in Chilliwack. She was an active member of the Mount Shannon United Church and loved to teach Sunday School. Claudia was a social butterfly and loved to entertain serving from her china tea cups any chance she had. One thing that she taught her daughters was to celebrate everything, didn’t matter how small it was…just celebrate it. A Celebration of Life service will be held on Friday Sept. 16 at 2:00 pm at Chilliwack Evangelical Missionary Church. Her pastor son-inlaw Glenn Driedger will be officiating at the service, along with Reverend Doug Astle. The family wishes to express their deep gratitude to the staff and nurses at the Waverly, and to Dr. Dodds and Dr. Antony for their amazing care over the years. In lieu of flowers a donation may be made to Canadian Mental Health Association, National Office, 595 Montreal Road, Suite 303, Ottawa, Ontario, K1K 4L2.
