Throness seeks BC Liberal nomination in Chilliwack-Hope Robert Freeman The Progress He was Conservative MP Chuck Strahl’s chief of staff in Ottawa. He was a Reform Party researcher in the 1990s and a policy advisor to the federal health minister in 2009. He was Socred MLA Harv Schroeder’s executive assistant in Chilliwack, and he ran for the party’s nomination here in 1986. He has a Master’s Degree in public administration from Queen’s University and a PhD in history from Cambridge University. Now Laurie Throness, 53, wants to be the BC Liberal Party’s candidate in the upcoming Chilliwack-Hope byelection. Why would anyone with Throness’s political experience want to jump Laurie Throness into a byelection that even the BC Liberal Premier admits will be nearly impossible for the governing party to win? “I think there’s an economic storm coming,” Throness replied in answer to that question during an interview Tuesday. “Europe is on the brink of financial collapse, Greece and Italy are stalled democracies, the U.S. has a trillion-dollar deficit — there has to be a reckoning coming,” he said. And Throness said he wants to be part of the BC government and use some of the political acumen he’s acquired over the past 18 years to help the province weather the storm. “I think I’ve had a breadth of experience that I’ve developed that I think will lead me to be an effective MLA,” he said. Throness also suggested that only a political coalition like the BC Liberals can stop the NDP from winning the next provincial election in 2013 and forming government — a swipe at the BC Conservative party, which is challenging the conservative credentials of the BC Liberals.

BC Hydro employees check out the damage that was done to the side of this Promontory house on Teskey Place after a truck drove into it at about 4 a.m. Wednesday morning. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

‘Bang in the night’ damages home, darkens Promontory Robert Freeman The Progress A wild ride through the Promontory area of Chilliwack early Wednesday left a huge hole in one house and knocked out power to more the 1,400 BC Hydro customers. A Ford F350, possibly stolen, was seen driving at a high rate of speed, churning up front lawns and eventually hitting a hydro-electric transformer box before it plowed into a house in the 5400-block Teskey Road at about 3 a.m. “In the middle of the night, we heard a huge bang,” homeowner Brendan

Kurtz said. “I looked out my back window and saw a Ford F350 diesel truck sitting in my back yard.” He said the truck apparently careened off the side of one house, punched a 4’x10’ hole in his basement wall, coming to rest at a “peculiar” angle in his backyard. Kurtz was remarkably calm about the whole affair, saying he was just grateful no one was injured. He said he did not see anyone in the pickup, but police said one man in the truck and another on foot were part of the suspicious-activity report that brought them to the area. No suspects were located by police

dogs at the scene, but one man matching a description of the suspects was later arrested walking down Promontory Road at about 7 a.m. “It cannot be confirmed if this man is associated to the suspicious pickup and activity on Promontory,” RCMP Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said in a news release. She said the man is being held in custody for breaching conditions of a previous release. Chilliwack RCMP had not confirmed the truck was stolen when it issued a news release about the incident at about 11 a.m. rfreeman@theprogress.com twitter.com/paperboy2

B.C.’s new top Mountie promises change Jeff Nagel Black Press The new head of the RCMP in B.C. is vowing to transform the culture of the force to ensure sexually harassed officers can safely blow the whistle on their tormenters and get help. Assistant Commissioner Craig Callens took over as RCMP ‘E’ division commander last month amid a series of allegations of harassment by female officers that began late last year when former B.C. RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Catherine Galliford went public with her own experience of being hounded by men in the force. Most female officers he’s heard from report a “very positive” experience in the RCMP, Callens said, but that doesn’t change his view that much more must be done.

“Frankly, one case is too many,” he said in an interview with Black Press. “I’m not persuaded that our response to these sexual harassment allegations has been timely enough or has been fulsome enough.” Callens is seeking advice from throughout the force to improve the reporting process so abused officers can be confident their complaints will be acted upon and they won’t face retribution. He said he’s interested not just in rooting out harassers, but also examining the response of those in the force, particularly immediate superiors, who have allowed it to fester under their watch. “I will be equally interested in what kind of information the supervisor or the local leader or officerin-charge of the detachment had

and what he did about it.” New policies will require strict timelines for investigation and action on harassment complaints, he said. Callens agreed the harassment disclosures have been the latest in a barrage of blows to the RCMP in this province – ranging from Robert Dziekanski’s death at Vancouver airport to missteps in the investigation of serial killer Robert Pickton – that have pummelled the morale of officers. Despite that, he said public confidence in the force does not deserve to be eroded because an overwhelming majority of RCMP officers “do an exceptional job every day.” Callens also suggested Mounties don’t get enough credit, either for their greater transparency in recent years of disclosing incidents

Assistant Commissioner Craig Callens

of officer misconduct, or for their support of external civilian oversight of police in those cases. “We embrace and look forward to external review and civilian oversight,” he said, adding he could

not be more pleased that Richard Rosenthal has been named as B.C.’s first civilian police investigator. Rosenthal is known for busting corrupt police in Los Angeles. Callens said the RCMP will intensify its push in 2012 to lead a province-wide gun and gang strategy involving all RCMP detachments and municipal forces. He said that will build upon the creation of additional Combined Forces Special Enforcement Units – which coordinate anti-gang investigations – in Prince George and Kelowna. But he also argued B.C.’s antigang strategy of the last couple of years has been “very effective,” noting the number of gang-related murders fell from its peak of 35 in 2009 to 18 in 2010 and less than 10 last year.

Lifelong learning with ElderCollege choices Jennifer Feinberg The Progress ElderCollege reps are gearing up for Spring 2012 registration slated for Jan. 17 at the old Ag-Rec building in Chilliwack. There’s bound to be high demand for several course offerings, including the Laptops with Windows 7. The instructors are ready to help seniors who may have purchased or been given a brand-new laptop computer this year. They know it’s likely to be popular, because last year they actually had a substantial waiting list. “We knew there would be strong demand for us to run the course again this year,” says instructor Marlene Dance. She and co-instructor Donna Hayes will tag-team the teaching duties, helping people figure out how to optimize their new PC-based laptops that run the Windows 7 operating system, with the help of experienced high school seniors who get class credit. “We just wouldn’t be as successful without the assistance of the high school students,” says Hayes. “We call them the tutors and the people taking the course are students. We’ve learned a few things from them ourselves.” Hayes teaches the other more basic computer courses as well from the UFV computer lab used by ElderCollege. All those units run on the XP system, but folks with newer PC laptops were having trouble making the transition to Windows 7, hence the need for the course. “Some were overwhelmed and frightened of Windows 7. They become more comfortable learning about this computer while it’s sitting

in front of them,” she says. They’ll learn a range of tricks, aside from the various functions, they’ll learn how to upload images from digital cameras, as well as how to attach them to emails. To take the laptop course, ElderCollege participants have to have some basic computer skills to begin with, but what it’s aimed at is giving them full use of their computers. Whether someone is new to the world of computers or upgrading their technology skills, ElderCollege has something to offer.

Computers for Beginners is divided into three levels to accommodate learners at various stages with the Windows operating system. For those who have progressed beyond the basics and are curious about using Facebook but concerned about security, a six-session course on Safe Social Networking is in the offing. ElderCollege Chilliwack is a nonprofit society offering non credit short courses to adults aged 50+, with fees from $23 to $49 depending on the number of sessions. Classes

are held on the north campus of the University of the Fraser Valley at the intersection of Yale and Airport roads. Registration for ElderCollege Spring 2012 semester is set for Tuesday, January 17. This event is held at the Landing Sports Centre, formerly called the Ag-Rec building, at 45530 Spadina Ave. Doors open at 3 p.m., registration is 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. For more information call 604702-2611, elder.college@ufv.ca or www.ufv.ca/eldercollege

Residents of the Yarrow Ecovillage share a warm greeting as they bump into each other on the pathway. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Yarrow Ecovillage reaches the halfway point Jennifer Feinberg The Progress The members of the Yarrow Ecovillage see themselves as “ordinary people” building an “extraordinary” neighbourhood on the western fringe of Chilliwack. Ecovillage members Nevin Gavigan, Vivian Vaillant and Linda Jones took The Progress on a recent tour of the site, located just off Yarrow Central Road. Vaillant said moving in was the “best thing” her family of five has ever done. “I’ve never felt more at home,” she said. “There’s always someone around with what you need, whether it’s an onion or the time to watch your kids for a minute while you dash out to get something.” Phase 3 of the co-housing construction is now underway, with two- to four-bedroom units available. The community is about half full now, with 50 residents in the ecovillage so far – 17 of which are children. It’s not a commune or a housing co-op, they hasten to add, nor are they affiliated with any particular religion. The Yarrow Ecovillage is an intentional community, and its members do share a desire to live in a more sustainable way, whether it’s green building materials or better waste water management. It’s a village lifestyle that’s more connected and engaged. The Vaillant family arrived in November, with plans to rent one of the units until their new home

is built and their other house in Edmonton is sold. Vivian immediately took over the ecovillage blog to give the world an online window into their lives, and share some of the enthusiasm she feels for the project. “We didn’t want to move into a normal, vinyl-sided neighbourhood,” she said. “I had that back in Edmonton. It took me five years to get to know any of my neighbours.” They started attending workshops and got to know some of the ecovillage members before they even moved in. “What we found were some of the nicest, coolest, most soundminded people you’d want to anywhere. “And they all want to know their neighbours,” she said. The co-housing project has been underway in Yarrow since 2006, when Chilliwack city council approved an “ecovillage” rezoning designation for the 22-acre site, one of the first of its kind in Canada. Several components make up the ecovillage, from the Groundswell co-housing units, to certified organic farming operations, and future plans for mixed commercial/residential development on the two acres closest to the road. Ecovillagers use consensus decision-making to get things done, and have built their homes in such a way that they bump into their neighbours frequently, to catch up and share what’s going on. Nevin Gavigan said he and his wife, Shauna, moved to the ecovil-

lage specifically to join the organic farming movement in the Fraser Valley, and to help it thrive. This summer they’ll be running a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) Harvest box program again, supplying fresh organic produce from the farm to fellow ecovillagers, and the surrounding communities of Chilliwack and Abbotsford. The couple had been researching intentional communities for several years before settling on the ecovillage, in part because it was still in its infancy, seeking new energies to help it grow. “What I wanted to do was to come here and farm and supply produce to the village,” Gavigan said. “It’s seen as a cherished resource, and it’s been great for us.”

He figures it would have been otherwise impossible for someone his age to purchase arable land, and is thrilled with the opportunity. “There’s been so much support and it’s unlike farming anywhere else. Just look at the beautiful backdrop we have,” he said, gesturing toward Vedder Mountain. The co-housing research and planning has been intense. “This project is based on some very successful co-housing models from around the world,” he said. Many of the ecovillage residents are also “foodies,” who deeply appreciate having fresh, organic produce grown right outside their doors, said ecovillage member Linda Jones. They often share and rotate the chores of cooking, and cleanup.

“Having the garden and farmers on-site gives us both sustenance and security,” Jones said. She also appreciates the environmentally friendly aspects incorporated into the design of the ecovillage. “We built our housing in a way that leaves the smallest footprint possible,” she said. There are plans to build a new common house in 2012, where community meals can be shared and other activities. “What we’re building here is so cutting-edge and yet old-fashioned at the same time,” said Vaillant. She appreciates the farm “being right there” outside the housing units, and their proximity to the little creek, the local library and Yarrow community school. “It’s cutting-edge because we’re actually in control of the design of it, but it’s also old-fashioned in the sense of what we have let get away on us, which is the sense of people first. Here it is people first. “It’s not utopia, and we’re still going to have to work on things when we have conflicts, but we’re armed for that.” To learn more about cohousing, there is an upcoming talk by co-housing expert and architect Chuck Durrett. Attendees can meet some people who have actually succeeded in building their own custom-designed neighbourhood. Chuck Durrett, Jan. 20, 7 p.m. UFV Abbotsford Campus Room B101 (Main lecture Hall).

News ‘Solid’ year ahead for real estate A ‘solid’ real estate scene is predicted for the first quarter of the new year as interest rates remain low and modest sales increases are projected. “We don’t expect to see any surprises for Chilliwack and area,” Chilliwack & District Real Estate Board President Mark Andersen said in a news release. “All indicators are pointing to stable list prices and a four to five per cent increase in sales for 2012,” he said. There were 120 sales in December, tying the number made in the same

Andersen said house buyers also took advantage of the “value-added buying dollars during the slower Christmas season” as the highest number of sales (18) were seen in the $300,000-$349,000 range, followed by 17 sales in the $350,000-$399,000 range.

Chilliwack RCMP are seeking public help locating a man who allegedly pushed a young woman to the ground and stole her bank card on New Year’s eve. The 18-year-old victim told police she was walking west in the 45600-block Bernard Avenue when a tall man in his late 20s or early 30s pushed her to the ground, stole her bank card and was last seen running toward the McDonald’s restaurant on Yale Road. The victim said the man’s voice sounded “rough and young” and he was wearing a black, hooded jacket and baggy pants at the time of the 8:20 p.m. assault. Anyone with information is asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS.

R AESIDE

Hang up the phone In the first 20 months of British Columbia’s distracted driving law, police issued 46,008 tickets to drivers for using hand-held electronic devices while behind the wheel. Another 1,372 tickets were issued for emailing or texting while driving. The ministry of the Solicitor-General says that means 16 people are still alive thanks to a 12 per cent reduction in motor vehicle accidents involving fatalities and serious injuries. The statistics suggest the two-year old ban on talking or texting on a cell phone while driving has been effective. But as anyone who spends any amount of time on the province’s roads and highways will likely attest, the reality is somewhat different. Drivers are still talking on their cell phones. Some are just more discreet about doing it. They wait until they’re on quieter side streets to unleash their dialing finger, or they look around to ensure no police are nearby. Or they try to hide their activity, keeping their phone out of sight as they press numbers or check their text messages. Others openly seem to be flaunting the law, chatting with their cell phone pressed up to their ear as they drive along busy thoroughfares. These scofflaws are gambling they won’t smash into anyone. Or at the very least get caught. And when they do, a recent survey by ICBC says their excuses range from outright defiance at the righteousness of the law, to misguided affection for the feel of the phone in their hand to a wrongheaded belief that making or taking a call while at a red light doesn’t count as driving. The risks presented by distracted driving are very real. In fact, you’re 23 times more likely to get into an accident if you’re using your cell phone while driving. So even though the coast may be clear of vigilant police, stay off the phone while driving. ~ Black Press

B.C. Progress Board served province well VICTORIA – How is B.C.’s economy doing? This question occupies a great deal of time in our political debate. But since that debate is mostly an exercise in selecting facts and passing blame back and forth, it’s difficult to tell. Former premier Gordon Campbell set out to change that in 2001 with the establishment of the B.C. Progress Board. Independent directors established six “core targets,” environmental, health and social indicators as well as economic measures, and tracked them annually with comparisons to other provinces. This created a 10-year database that doesn’t exist anywhere else. But it hasn’t exactly been flattering, a sign that it has been kept free of political interference. Premier Christy Clark’s recent decision to replace the Progress Board has sparked another round

of political blame-storming. The NDP opposition was accustomed to jumping on the annual rankings and trumpeting the ones that cast the B.C. Liberals in a bad light. Predictably, they portrayed the remake of the board as an effort to sweep embarrassing results under the rug. Media often focus on the political horse race Tom rather than details FLETCHER of dull old policy. When the board’s annual reports came out, they typically covered the political fight and glossed over the findings. The key flaw with the Progress Board turned out to be its emphasis on provincial rankings. B.C. ranked first for the entire 10 years in health and environmental con-

ditions, and near the bottom in a complex measure of “social condition” that was often oversimplified as poverty. In most measures, including economic ones, the rankings barely changed in a decade. In his final report, board chair Gerry Martin noted that B.C.’s improvements in economic output and income were significant, but didn’t move them up the rankings because other provinces had similar success. Big recoveries in Saskatchewan and Newfoundland meant that B.C. sometimes slipped in the relative rankings despite major gains. Martin noted that on crime, “initial performance was so poor that B.C.’s best-in-country improvements over several years were needed just to move B.C. to about average.” (There’s an example of how independent this board has been.)

Crime is part of the board’s “Social Condition Index,” along with low-birth-weight babies and long-term unemployment. This has been a favourite of opposition critics, because B.C. started low and slipped lower. But they won’t tell you the whole story, through the NDP 1990s as well as the B.C. Liberal 2000s: “B.C. ranked sixth in the Social Condition Index in 1990, improved to third in 1993, but deteriorated through the rest of the 1990s and into the next decade such that it sank to last place for 2001 and 2002,” the final report says. “Improvements between 2002 and 2007 saw B.C. reach fifth place in 2006 and 2007, but rank changes on low birth weights and longterm unemployment brought B.C. to seventh in 2008 and ninth in 2009.” Does this mean the NDP government of the 1990s did a bad job,

or that the B.C. Liberals did better and then screwed up? It could be spun that way, but there are external factors involved. The B.C. Progress Board didn’t just do rankings. Its policy suggestions were implemented in regulatory reform, energy self-sufficiency, creating community courts and UBC Okanagan, and proceeding with the Site C dam. Martin notes that the successor organization, the Jobs and Investment Board, will carry on the performance monitoring and “hold government’s feet to the fire,” in particular on its ability to attract investment. It’s time to stop arguing about the level of poverty and find new ways to alleviate it. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca

‘The warmest city in Canada’ It seems that the city of Chilliwack has suffered from an identity crisis over the years. It has been called the “Green Heart of the Fraser Valley” and it has also been called Rainbow Country. According to Environment Canada, 10 of the 11 warmest

cities in Canada are in British Columbia. Five cities with the highest annual average temperature in Canada are (in Celsius): Chilliwack – 10.5, Vancouver – 10.1, Abbotsford – 10, Nanaimo – 9.7, and Victoria – 9.7. The city of Chilliwack does not

need to suffer from an identity crisis any more because it is the warmest city in Canada! I can envision the billboards when entering Chilliwack: “Welcome to Chilliwack, the warmest city in Canada.” Rob Kingdon

Cool enough to axe the Carbon Tax In the midst of her rambling list of “strange” weather events of 2011, Margaret Evans left off her usual claim that our life style is to blame. Her story does however, tell a tale of wrath and destruction that should strike fear into our hearts, and have us begging to be taxed at even higher rates for

our implied eco-crimes. The establishment hammered wage earners on Jan. 1st with a list of increases in a range of fees from Carbon Tax to ICBC rates. And, we haven’t heard from City Council yet on what Chilliwack’s yearly property tax increase will be. Those who tax thrive when the public

believe we are to blame for the problem. As the public wakes up to the scams of never-ending government fee increases, and never-ending financial mismanagement, people are starting to ask our public servants to handle our affairs more prudently. We accept no more

Renters unfairly affected by bylaw I’m furious with our city’s ridiculous Bylaw. 3044, “Nuisance, Noxious or Offensive Trades, Health Safety Bylaw 2004.” As a renter I am subjected to quarterly visits by a bylaw inspector under employ of our rental agency, most recently at the worst time possible for I was attempting to put our two-yearold child to bed and was on the receiving end of his two-year-old anger when, yay, the doorbell rings and there is the official. There went the last hour of my life as now my son is wide awake again and assuredly cranky as all get go until bed time that night.

How unfair is this? From my experience and reading of the news, grow-ops, which are becoming Sharon Gaetz’s downfall as mayor, aren’t found in rental four-plexes or apartment buildings. They are found most often in large-scale operations in whole houses or barns or trailers that seem dark and dim to their neighbours and are hence flagged by authorities as possible grow-ops. Seldom is a young family of five with three school-age children, barely getting by in a small, two-bedroom apartment I might add, the proprietors of a grow-

op. Go target the real criminals out there and leave people such as myself alone for crying out loud. This bylaw is a total invasion of my privacy and I shall pursue legal avenues to prove that it violates my constitutional rights if our city doesn’t open its eyes and quit codifying laws under a totalitarian regime, which is clearly the path Chilliwack is on under Sharon Gaetz, think CEPCO, the downtown core, the Corner Nook, Panorama Ridge, it only gets worse and worse.

Cosmetic pesticides a risk not worth taking RE: “Do Homework Before Pesticide Ban” (Progress, Dec. 15) The key message in this letter is that lawn pesticides have risks. Ever yone, including Health Canada, admits this. In the case of 2,4-D -- a common herbicide used to kill weeds in

grass -- these risks include cancer, neurological impairment, and reproductive problems. Our doctors’ organization, along with the Canadian Cancer Society, says the risks are not worth taking, especially when the chemicals in question

are used just to change a lawn’s appearance. We believe homeowners can keep their properties beautiful using nontoxic products -- which are effective and widely available. The best way to protect our drinking water, beloved family pets and,

most important, our children is to ban lawn and garden pesticides right across the province. Gideon Forman Executive Director Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment www.cape.ca

The Chilliwack-Hope riding is a traditionally “smallc conservative” stronghold, both federally and provincially, but even BC Liberal Premier Christy Clark admitted during a recent visit that “governments almost always lose byelections.” Byelections are seen as a safe way for voters to send a message to governments by casting their ballots for political parties they would not otherwise support. However, even in light of the most contentious political issue facing the BC Liberals

— their introduction of the Harmonized Sales Tax without public consultation — Chilliwack voters bucked the overwhelming provincial trend and supported the government’s position to keep the tax. Clark also said that despite the historical trend of governments losing byelections, it would be “bizarre” for Chilliwack-Hope voters to send a New Democrat to Victoria, and she did not rule out completely a BC Liberal victory.

When Strahl retired from politics last year, Throness returned to the Fraser Valley and attended courses a Trinity Western University in Langley. He is single with no children, and his father is a retired minister living in Chilliwack. “I’m already familiar with the constituency, its issues and its people,” Throness said in a news release announcing his bid for the nomination. “I’m ready and I’ll be working hard over the coming weeks to obtain the nomination,” he said.

before moving to Victoria to work for Socred MLAs Grace McCarthy and Hugh Curtis. He ran unsuccessfully for nomination as the Socred candidate in Chilliwack in 1986, and as school board candidate in Vancouver under the NPA banner. He joined Strahl’s Ottawa team as legislative assistant from 1994-97 and then worked as social policy researcher for Preston Manning, Stockwell Day and Stephen Harper. He went to Cambridge University in 2002 to work on a PhD, and published a book about the history of the penitentiary system.

Long-term success against gang crime will depend more on education and prevention, as well as rehabilitation of offenders, he said. Callens declined to discuss the repeated calls for marijuana decriminalization. On the issue of roadside penalties for impaired drivers, Callens said there’s no debating the fact they’ve been effective in reducing drinking driving, noting the more than 40 per cent cut in impaired driving fatalities. But he said the sanctions must be constitutional and accepted by the courts, adding the force respects the court ruling that partially overturned the penalties and will work with the province in responding to it. Callens said the single biggest area of success in recent years for the Mounties has been their pursuit of intelligence-based

crime reduction initiatives. “In almost all of our communities we have seen significant reductions in crime,” he said, listing 25 to 30 per cent reductions in property crime in Surrey, Prince George and Kelowna. Those gains come from using crime analysts to identify prolific offenders who officers can target, preferably for reform through other social services partners who can provide drug treatment and other support. Crime reduction strategies have gone from a pilot project tests in 2005 to “core business in every single detachment,” Callens said. “We’ve made considerable gains, but we’re not taking our eye off the ball,” he said. “It remains a priority. We will be developing newer and even more comprehensive strategies to deal with violent crime and domestic violence in the years

to come.” Callens, a third-generation Mountie with 26 years in the force, comes to the province’s top post after working in general duty, major crime and federal drug enforcement. He’s served in Prince George, Wells, Kamloops, Surrey and then at ‘E’ division headquarters in Vancouver. He said the biggest challenge that has emerged for police in recent years have been landmark court decisions that now require vastly more paperwork to disclose every facet of an investigation to the defence. “Our investigators are required to disclose every piece of paper, every computer entry, every query and inquiry they conduct over the course of that investigation,” Callens said. “That has dramatically changed the way we need to approach investigations.”

“perfect time” to buy a first home, a move-up or an investment property. When renters become buyers, he said, not only does it represent one of the soundest long-term investments in a person’s life, it also helps to boost the local economy. “Annually, housing-related spending from the sales transaction and associated fees to renovations and furnishings, accounts for more than 20 per cent of the Gross Domestic Product in Canada,” Andersen said. “Most of those services and associated fees take place in the actual community where the sale occurred, so annually the housing sector contributes greatly to a community’s stability,” he said. Chilliwack realtors are also engaged in the community, donating $7,000 to Chilliwack Community Services, $5,000 to the Village youth housing project on School Street and $2,000 to the Christmas Sharing Project.

Travel B.C. allies back Blaine Amtrak station Jeff Nagel Black Press Efforts to get a White Rock stop for Amtrak passenger trains have so far failed, but a new push is now on to use Blaine’s historic train station just a short stroll across the border. The idea is that Canadians – particularly from cities like Surrey, Langley and Chilliwack – could park near the Peace Arch border and board trains there to Seattle. “It would have heavy Canadian

usage as they could cross the border by foot or bike even,” predicts Bill Becht, one of the Blaine residents behind the campaign to restore the shuttered station. The issue has become urgent in Blaine since BNSF Railway applied for a permit to demolish the old station building. The city has postponed the decision one year while the building’s significance is assessed. “I just want to get more awareness and hopefully there will be a groundswell of support,” Becht

said. “Tearing a historic train station down is an asinine thing to do.” He thinks Canadians will be key allies in the fight. The current Vancouver-Seattle service, which has no intermediary stops north of Bellingham, is much less convenient for the 600,000plus South of Fraser residents who must first get to Vancouver’s Main Street train station to board Amtrak or else wait in border lines and drive to Bellingham to connect.

Holly Johnston: Laundry Diva Who likes doing laundry? For most people, laundry is an absolute chore and something that is hardly fun. It’s something that gets put off. Why do you think that most people let it pile up in the hamper, doing an emergency load only when they start running low on socks and underwear? With laundry being part of our everyday lives, Laundry Divas co-founder and mompreneur Holly Johnston decided to give the consumer options for not only making laundry easier but eco-friendly and fun too. Holly’s drive to becoming a successful entrepreneur began at a young age and that same drive and determination continues to this day. Holly grew up in Richmond and by the time that she was just thirteen she was working. “I began my working career at Salty’s Fish & Chips and I have never looked back. I enjoyed the challenge,� she enthused. As an enthusiastic and outgoing young lady, Holly enjoyed school for its social aspect but admits to having been very creative, excelling at anything artsy. Her father has enjoyed a long career as a tree topper and still today, at the age of 67, he continues to climb trees, doing what he has always done best. “My mother is now semi-retired but she still has cleaning contracts. I help her out with her current contract with Mountain Institution,� she said. While the family enjoyed Richmond, it got to the point where they recognized that the community was beginning to change and it was getting rougher. “I was in school and

still rather young and was taking the bus to work and my mom began to worry about me. There was a lot of rough stuff going on. So, they decided to move out to Chilliwack.� Holly went on to graduate from Chilliwack Senior Secondary and while she knew that she wanted to become an entrepreneur, she hadn’t decided what she intended to do specifically. By the time that she was 21, Ana she had decided to start her own MACEDO company and after considerable research, launched Fraser Valley Extras. “Essentially, the company organized extras for the movie industry from Hope to Ladner. John Ritter and Henry Winkler were out here shooting a movie one time and I had John Ritter do a two-day workshop on acting. He was a really nice guy. I did this for awhile and it was successful and I had fun and enjoyed doing it but I didn’t know if I wanted to commit my whole life to it and eventually, I folded the company,� she explained. She then began working with teenagers who were in the foster care system, helping them adjust to independent living. “Some of these young people had extreme behaviour problems and after four years, I did need to move on. I then began working with Chilliwack Community Services and enjoyed my job but it wasn’t nearly as intense as the previous

one had been. From there, I began providing employment education for adults,â€? she said. Before getting married, Holly went on a thrilling, seven month, European adventure. “What an awesome time. I learned so much while I was there. My cousin was living over there and one day, we began discussing the kinds of things that we could do together. We knew that one day we’d have our own business,â€? she laughed. After returning to Chilliwack, she got married. “My husband Clint is a Yarrow boy, born and bred. He lost his hand while working at Uneeda Forest Products and so he went back to school to train as a teacher. When he graduated, the English school system was hiring so we went to England and lived there for five years,â€? she said. While there, Holly and her family travelled extensively and experienced as much of Europe as possible. Holly returned to Chilliwack 2½ years ago, and along with her cousin Shannon Faulkner, who lives in London and is the head of collections for Honda UK, decided to launch their own business, as they had once discussed. “We sell eco-friendly laundry products. We do a lot of our sales through the internet but our products are also now sold at All Things Being Eco in Chilliwack. Customers can call us as we do accept VISA and Mastercard or cheques. Once the order is processed, we mail it out right to their door. With the launch of our site, www.laundrydivas.com, we also Continued: ANA/ p18

Key decisions will soon be made by Metro Vancouver politicians on how the region will try to build modern incinerators or other waste-to-energy plants. New Metro board chair Greg Moore predicts there will be intense interest from international companies that want to partner with the region to showcase the evolving technologies to convert garbage into energy. “I think we’ll all be surprised by the number of companies that will put their names forward,” Moore said. Metro wants to build new inregion waste-to-energy plants and last summer secured the province’s approval of its solid waste management plant to proceed. But the initiative remains contentious, particularly among Fraser Valley residents who fear increased air pollution from burning garbage, as well as recycling advocates who think incinerating the waste problem away will take pressure off the region to reduce the garbage generated and put what remains to better use. Moore, the Port Coquitlam mayor who stickhandled Metro’s solid waste plan to approval with Victoria, said the project has been on hold through the civic

elections, but he expects debate to begin in earnest soon. Moore hopes most of the key issues can be settled by the end of March, paving the way for a call for private partners to step forward later this year and a formal bid call after that. The flow of garbage going to the Vancouver Landfill in Delta – now around 500,000 tonnes – is supposed to be gradually cut down to less than 100,000 tonnes a year by 2020 as waste reduction and recycling strategies improve. Moore said that may leave Metro requiring more wasteto-energy capacity at that time, which potentially could be procured by alternative technologies if the initial phase of construction goes well. Also to be decided is whether Metro would own new plants – it owns the Burnaby incinerator but contracts out operation – or if they would be financed, built and owned by a private firm that would charge Metro a per tonne disposal fees. If the latter, Metro would have to commit to a long term garbage supply contract. Nor is it clear yet exactly where the new incinerators might be built. An alternate location is a former pulp mill on the northwest coast of Vancouver Island, where

Covanta Energy wants to build an incinerator that could take Metro waste. That could be the ultimate choice to address Fraser Valley concerns, but it may be more costly for Metro because of the need to barge waste there. Metro argues in-region sites hold better potential to connect to a district heating network that could increase the amount of money earned from energy sales. Also on the to-do list is creating a working group to try to address the Valley’s concerns over health risks from pollution. “We need to start that process and try to find some common ground,” Moore said. “We have 12 months to figure it out together.” If the two regional districts are still at loggerheads over incineration, he noted, the provincial environment ministry will act as arbitrator. Part of the process will include public health impact assessments of whatever specific proposal emerges, under the direction of medical health officers from the Fraser and Vancouver Coastal health authorities. That work will look not just at air emissions that can waft east to the Valley but also the potential for local exposure to toxins near any proposed waste-fired plant.

She’s always setting goals and admits that she has some high expectations. “Richard Branson, who owns Virgin Airlines, is a most incredible entrepreneur and I have a lot of respect for him. He’s motivated and ethical and I’ll know that I’ve made it when the Trekker Balls are on his shopping list for Virgin Airlines. I’m going to work on that,” she laughed.

WHEN:

Chase leads to arrest A 36-year-old Chilliwack man was arrested after a short foot chase by police last Tuesday night. Police were called by a report of a break-andenter in progress at a Yale Road business at about 10:30 p.m. Police heard “banging along the side of the building,” but a male suspect did not comply with police demands and jumped over a fence to avoid arrest. He was caught after a short chase and taken into custody without incident. “Reducing property crime is one of our top priorities,” RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck said in a news release.

Home&Garden

Winter garden worries far from over T

hanks to La Nina, our winter so far has been milder and drier than usual. However, winter doesn’t end until March 20th, so there could still be a real possibility of challenging weather ahead. We all have unhappy memories of the severe cold at the end of last February. The good news is we can take some steps to minimize the affects. The first suggestion I would like to make pertains to hardiness. Most of us know which hardiness zone we live in and should therefore be planting only those plants which will tolerate that zone. Certainly slight variations will exist, but as a rule of thumb, most of the plants zoned for your region will take the worst most winters have to offer. If you don’t know your zone, you can easily find out from a local nursery. Greater Vancouver is generally rated zone 7 and as you move east through the Valley, zone 6 is the norm. From experience, however, I know that no gardener worth her or his salt pays much attention to zones. Virtually all gardeners set out plants they know are not hardy in their region, but they insist that with a little extra protection these plants will survive. Unfortunately, that protection is not always applied until it’s too late. There are, however, some techniques that can add a few degrees of hardiness to many plants. One thing I

A couple of years of mild winters can lull us into winter complacency. Make sure you always prepare the appropriate winter protection, writes Brian Minter

noticed after an early November cold spell three years ago was that plants growing in very well-drained sandy soil survived the cold with the least amount of damage. It seems that if a plant’s roots have had to work harder for moisture and food, the plant is tougher and stops growing earlier in the fall. As a consequence, its branches and buds become dormant earlier, preventing severe damage from the cold. These plants also tend to stay dormant longer and suffer far less root damage because with a lower moisture content, the soil is not moved about so much by the frost. Planting all your plants, particularly the softer ones, in welldrained sandy loam is a sure way to toughen them up. A further protection for more tender plants is a good mulching with fir or hemlock bark mulch or even with sawdust. Mulching makes an incredible difference both in summer and winter. It retains critical moisture necessary at both times of the year. Immediately after

a cold spell when the temperature is on the rise and the frost is coming out of the ground, it’s essential to get moisture back into our plants, especially for those planted under eaves. Soak the living daylights out of the foliage of broadleaved plants and thoroughly penetrate the root system with water. A good watering can really make quite a difference to the amount of damage to so many plants. Desiccation from cold, drying winter winds is another major problem. As if the severe wind on our more tender broadleaved plants, like aucubas, photinias, rhododendrons and azaleas, is not bad enough, winter sunshine can burn their foliage. Not only is it important to create wind breaks around our softer plants, it’s also essential to keep winter sunshine off them in severe cold. We always winter our rhododendrons in a lath house that both shades them and acts as a wind break. One of the important things to do, particularly where plants are exposed to cold outflow winds, is to create a tripod of

strong bamboo canes and wrap the plants with the new insulating cloth, ‘N-Sulate’, which can make a 8-10°C difference. It is also important to check bulbs and roots stored in garages and sheds to make sure they are insulated from severe cold and freezing. Small greenhouses are wonderful for starting new plants and keeping over old ones, but plastic and glass are very susceptible to cold. Greenhouses need to be not only heated but also insulated with bubble poly on the inside to help alleviate the severity of the cold. Wet heavy snow

can break and bend many weaker plants, so staking them and wrap them tightly with twine for extra support will make a huge difference. Experiencing numerous years of cold winters in our gardens has taught us many good lessons. First and foremost, never let your guard down. A couple of years of mild winters can lull us into winter complacency. Make sure you always prepare the appropriate winter protection. Secondly, as bad as it may seem, don’t assume the worst until new growth appears, or doesn’t appear, in the spring. Finally, cold winters are just a part of the gardening cycle. Passionate gardeners will keep on planting tender plants – losing a few is part of the learning curve we all go through.

Todd Richard’s video release party for the song Live’s About People is Jan. 21 at Corky’s Irish Pub. MARK MARYANOVICH PHOTO

Todd Richard knows life is about people The Progress There’s a sense of urgency coming through in the song, Life’s about People, by country artist Todd Richard. “Life’s about people, not material things/ It’s not about fast cars or diamond rings/ “It’s about making a difference/ it’s lending a hand/ it’s having compassion for your fellow man.” Harrison Hot Springs resident Todd Richard is “psyched” about unveiling the debut video for the song on Jan. 21 at Corky’s Irish Pub in Chilliwack. CMT is currently considering the catchy tune for rotation, and Richard and the whole TR team have their fingers crossed that the song will get national air play

on the country music station. If there’s any urgency in the song, released on iTunes Monday, it’s of the smack-on-theforehead variety. The rousing and hook-filled Life’s about People is from the Journey On CD, with seven songs co-written with country star Rick Tippe. The song hits the listener on an emotional level with the realization that the only thing that really matters is the ability to love and show compassion. “The line, life’s about people, just stuck in my head, when we were writing songs for the album and Rick threw that one out at me,” Richard remembers. “We both related it to that moment at a stoplight when you look over at the guy holding a sign, and you could just brush it

off, but you suddenly realize he’s somebody’s son. “When we finished writing it, we knew we had something,” he says. Whenever they played it for anyone, they were urged to put it on the album. Hamilton-born Richard first broke out on the Canadian country scene about five years ago, appearing on CMT Canada’s Karaoke Star contest, making it all the way to the finals. The singer with a distinctive look and vocals, caught the music career bug and has been plugging away at it ever since. He met fellow B.C. songwriter and country performer Rick Tippe at the CCMAs, and they decided to collaborate creatively. Richard headed to Nashville last year to record the album.

Estimates for the cost of this entirely preventable disease per person impacted is over 20,000 dollars every year (about 5.3 billion dollars in Canada annually). This total does not include the cost of involvement with the criminal justice system. Every dollar that goes towards preventing FASD has a profound financial and individual positive return.

been demonstrated to increase the well-being and success of children and youth. Early testing and intervention for students with learning disabilities is another way to improve the school trajectory of students. Programs to increase emotional regulation, healing from trauma, communication skill-building, academic supports and of coursehelping struggling families meet basic nutrition and housing needs have an appreciable economic benefit. So how does this impact you, dear reader? The greater the well-being of each of our fellow Canadians the better off we all are. If we are able to increase the cognitive skills in our school-aged children there is a commensurate increase in Gross Domestic Product. The economic growth would more than pay for the programs and resources needed to help our atrisk kids and youth. Not only do government and community service organizations benefit, but also every tax-payer and citizen with a heart (or who would prefer not to be a victim of crime). The economic benefits are clear, but more important are the individual and social benefits. The potential of individual benefit is mind-boggling and by reducing the number of kids involved in criminal activity the fewer of us will be impacted by crime. The entire (almost 100 page) report can be accessed at www.boardoftrade.com/ files/PDF/Policy/2010/ EconomicAspectsof KidsNCrime13sept10. pdf and makes for compelling and helpful reading. The next time you hear someone complaining about kids these days- direct them to this report and suggest they find a way to make a positive difference in the life of a struggling child or youth.

A French discussion group has started up again in Chilliwack to offer lively conversations every Tuesday night in Evergreen Hall for the next several months. The French discussions kicked off last October, hosted by members of the Fraser Valley Francophone Association. The first monthly meeting of the new year is set for Jan. 24. The idea was to bring francophones and francophiles together to keep the French language alive in the Fraser Valley, as well as sharpening their French conversation skills. The French discussion group will be meeting in the Minto Room

Trevor Hillls (No. 23 in red) and his Chilliwack Chiefs go hunting for their first win in six Friday night as they host the Prince George Spruce Kings. The Chiefs should have two new players in the lineup as they welcome Anderson White and Kody Dhaliwal. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Surrey native played for Smyl’s Langley Chiefs the last two seasons. Dhaliwal had 10 goals and 19 assists for 29 points in 59 games for the Chiefs last year, and had 10 goals and 22 points in 38 games for Salmon Arm this year. Smyl likes the experience Dhaliwal brings to the club. “Kody knows what the Chiefs hockey club expects from their players both on and off of the ice to be successful,” he said in a news release announcing the deal. “He is tenacious, very good in the face-off circle and is defensively responsible.” Like White, Dhaliwal is another player Smyl feels has untapped offensive upside. Smyl recognized it when he was coaching Langley, but he couldn’t pro-

vide Dhaliwal with the offensive opportunities needed to shine. With his current roster, Smyl feels he can put Dhaliwal in position to succeed at both ends of the ice. “The biggest thing about Kody is that he really wants to be here, which is great to have in a player who already plays a determined game,” Smyl said. “Offensively, his stats aren’t great, but at the junior B level he put up some very good numbers. He does get the chances, it’s just a matter of execution around the net.” With the dealing done, the Chiefs (1914-0-2) now prepare for a busy weekend on the ice, starting with a Friday night home ice clash with the Prince George Spruce Kings

(19-13-2-3). Chilliwack comes into the weekend fourth in the Interior conference, three points back of PG with two games in hand. Winning these head to head games is essential as both teams jockey for one of four available playoff spots. Chilliwack has two wins, one loss and one overtime loss in the four head-to-head meetings so far, though the Sprucies have taken the last two. In the most recent meeting, on Dec. 28, Paul de Jersey had one goal and three assists, setting up linemate Michael Colantone’s hat-trick as PG took a 4-2 final at Prospera Centre. On Saturday, the Chiefs head to Merritt for another crucial

matchup. The Centennials head into the weekend second in the Interior conference, and if Chilliwack hopes to catch them it has to start now. The Chiefs trail Merritt by nine points, though they hold three games in hand. The Cents (21-102-5) have gone 6-3-0-1 over their last 10 to gain some breathing room in the standings. Chilliwack has one win, two losses and an overtime loss in four head-to-head meetings thus far. The Cents shut out the Chiefs 1-0 in their last matchup on Dec. 30, getting 20 saves from goaltender Lino Chimienti and the lone goal from Brent Fletcher. Chilliwack’s final game of the weekend

comes Sunday night as they take on the BCHL bottom feeding Trail Smoke Eaters. Trail has managed just six wins (6-24-14) this season and just traded their top scorer (Clayton Chessa) to the Vernon Vipers. Vernon then flipped Chessa to Nanaimo. While no game is ever a given, this is as close as it gets in the BCHL. Chilliwack has won all four previous meetings with the Smokies this year. ● Get a full weekend wrapup in the Tuesday Progress sports section and find additional BCHL content online at www.theprogress.com.

Chilliwack is not my hometown, but it feels like it is. I was born in Tisdale, Saskatchewan and spent most of my growing up on a dairy farm. After graduation I moved to Calgary for 15 years, then my husband was transferred to the coast and we made our home in Surrey. I moved out here as a single mom with my three kids almost 12 years ago. We loved Chilliwack immediately and my family has had a very happy life here. So I feel like I’m well qualified to work with new people coming to the area, as well as those who have been here forever, because I believe in this city. I think I’ve found a little piece of paradise and the wisest people know this to be true. Give me a call anytime for your complimentary market evaluation or if you know someone moving to town, pass along my name, because Chilliwack is my hometown now.

Continued low interest rates for at least the first quarter of the year combined with a projected modest increase in sales point to another solid year for the local real estate scene. “We don’t expect to see any surprises for Chilliwack and area,” said Chilliwack and District Real Estate Board (CADREB) President Mark Andersen. “All indicators are pointing to stable list prices and a 4 to 5 percent increase in sales for 2012”. The year ended with 120 sales during December, tying the sales in December one year earlier. Buyers took advantage of the value-added buying dollars during the slower Christmas season, as the highest number of sales (18) occurred in the $300,000 - $349,999 range, followed by 17 sales in the $350,000 - $399,999 range. Inventory fell slightly, with 1,330 listings currently on the local market. “We said it often during 2011, and we continue to say it in the new year – with low interest rates and motivated sellers, it is a perfect time to buy a first home, a move-up or an investment property”.

When renters become buyers, not only does it represent one of the soundest long-term investments in a person’s life, it also helps to boost the local economy. “Annually, housing related spending from the sales transaction and associated fees to renovations and furnishings, accounts for more than 20% of the Gross Domestic Product in Canada,” explained Mr. Andersen. “Most of those services and associated fees take place in the actual community where the sale occurred, so annually the housing sector contributes greatly to a community’s sustainability”. This is on top of the philanthropic value added by the work of the close to 300 Chilliwack and area REALTORS every day. CADREB REALTORS this year donated $7000 to Chilliwack Community Services – $5000 to “the Village” Youth Housing Project on School St., and $2000 to the Christmas Sharing Project. -CADREB Press Release

Motocross rider faces lifelong battle Kevin Mitchell, Black Press He broke his back and neck in six places. Also fractured his clavicle, sternum and multiple ribs. Both his lungs collapsed. It was the worst crash of pro motocross racer Brent (Airmail) Worrall’s career, one which has left the Chilliwack born and raised 45-year-old paralyzed, in a wheelchair, facing lengthy rehabilitation and uncertain financial woes. Worrall is a Chilliwack secondary school graduate (class of 1984) and former Canadian champion, who was ranked No. 10 in the world in 1981. He was doing well in his class this year when a mechanical malfunction in mid-flight flyswatted him as he attempted the track’s largest jump at a race in Walton, Ont. in August. He soared 140 feet and nose dived out of control. “At 45 years old you don’t bounce that well anymore,” said Worrall, a father of three who left Chilliwack in the early 1990s and now lives in Vernon. “I remember hitting the ground and was conscious. Everything hurt and I was face down with the 236-pound bike on top of me. My lungs were collapsed within minutes and I was out. I woke up two-and-a-half days later and knew where I was and what had happened, sort of.” Paralyzed from the sternum down, Brent was induced into a coma in a London health facility in Ontario where he fought for his life. His heart stopped and needed to be re-started four times. On the eighth day after surgery to stabilize his back (three rods and 15 screws hold his backbone together now), he was deemed well enough to be flown back to Vernon Jubilee Hospital. Brent and his girlfriend, Gisela Stieda, were told by a trauma centre team that he would have to fly in a

low-flying plane because the altitude of regular flights would collapse his lungs again. He still had drain tubes in his lungs to keep fluid from pooling in them, and needed his vitals checked constantly. “We were assured that the flight was at no cost to us. Brent arrived in Vernon Aug. 25 where he was put in isolation on the surgical ward,” said Stieda. “He had open wounds and tubes draining fluid out of his lungs. He developed a bacterial infection in his surgical scar (which runs the entire length of his body). This nearly killed him and scared us beyond belief. ” Worrall later suffered another bladder infec-

tion and blood clot in his left leg. Shor tly before Christmas, he opted to come home after the setbacks he felt could have been avoided. During all these months of recovery, Worrall has also been hounded by the London health facility for a $27,800 bill for the flight home. He has tried unsuccessfully to contact B.C. Medical, while also sending an e-mail to Okanagan-Shuswap MP Colin Mayes with no response. Worrall, who finished third in the Over 40 class at the Western Canadian Championships in July, said his spinal cord was grossly dislocated. All the small vascular

receptors have been destroyed, but can regenerate with time. In an emotional YouTube video, Worrall thanks sponsors Valley Moto Sport Kelowna, Riders Edge Suspension Vernon, Goldentyre Canada, and MX Forum. He tears up, revealing how in his younger days, his life was going sideways with alcohol before he returned to motocross and turned things around. He holds out hope he will one day walk again. “I know of handfuls of individuals who have experienced the same fate and saw and empathized with their pain and struggle. Now that it has happened to me I don’t want anyone to feel sorry for me. I am

still the same person who loves life, Gisela, my family and the outdoors. “Motocross has given me life-long friendships and a passion that is irreplaceable. I will harness every ounce of fortitude I used to achieve greatness in the sport of motocross and make my life a success. While still hospitalized in October, I committed to The Ride To Conquer Cancer in 2013 on a hand-pedalled wheelchair 300km from Surrey to Seattle in two days.” Scheduled for a long overdue stay in GF Strong Rehab Centre in Vancouver next week, Worrall’s daily routine is very limited since he lives in a condo with two flights of eight stairs. “If I want to go outside, I have to contact a strong friend and be carried up and down,” he chuckled. “We are most likely going to have to relocate but being confronted with this $27,800 medical flight bill is virtually going to make that impossible. It has caused great stress and grief for Gisela and I, who cannot believe our government is turning their backs on us.” He said GF Strong will teach him to transfer his weight and get back into the mainstream of life. “I’m looking out the window right now thinking about how my life has changed the last four months, and I’m ready for GF Strong,” said Worrall. “They’re going to work me.” He was working in the service department at Kenkraft RV prior to his summer trek east “but my main goals this year were to give the three major races my best shot and then just take a more relaxed approach and involvement in the sport.” He says support from friends in motocross is keeping his spirits high. “That’s what makes things like this survivable: good friends, good people.” To help Worrall in his recovery, visit: brentsrecovery.weebly.com.

Deadline D dli ddealing li g The Vernon Vipers went backwards at the trade deadline, losing a key player, writes Jacob Bestebroer Trade deadline day in the CJHL was an interesting one for Chilliwack Chiefs and other fan bases around the league. While the Chiefs were making three moves to help in their pursuit of a playoff spot, otherr Interior conference teams were also active. Here’s a quick look at some other moves thatt indirectly affect the Chiefs. The Penticton Vees, who have won 21 straightt games, decided having five of the top seven scorers in the league on their roster simply y would w ould not do. So they made it six of seven by trading for Wade Murphy of the Victoria Grizzlies. By my count this trade, which cost them 17-year-old forward Mark McLellan and cash (maybe more, details were tough to find early y Wednesday morning) leaves the Vees with just three players expected to return next season. Penticton is going all-in with a national championship in mind. The Prince George Spruce Kings, who vvisit isit Prospera Centre Friday night, improved themselves offensively by adding Jarryd Ten Vaanholt V aanholt from the Victoria Grizzlies in exchange for future considerations. The Spruce Kings rely heavily on their top line of Paul De Jersey, Michael Colantone and JJujhar ujhar Khaira. This trade gives them much needed secondary scoring, with Vaanholt collecting 17 goals and 41 points this season. The Vernon Vipers went backwards at the trade deadline, losing a key player when Dylan Walchuk W alchuk bolted for the Spokane Chiefs of the Western W estern Hockey League. Walchuk led the Vipers in scoring last season with 56 points, and rejoined Vernon justt prior to Christmas after a stint at Northern Michigan University didn’t work out. Walchuk k had one goal and six points in six games with the Vipers. Vernon tried to recover by acquiring 91-born forward Clayton Chessa from Trail for future considerations, then flipping him to Nanaimo for 91-born forward Colton Cyr. Cyr had nine goals and 14 points in 29 games this season. The Chiefs enter this weekend’s action in third place in the Interior Conference, three points behind the third place Spruce Kings with two games in hand. The Kings are in Chilliwack k Friday night. Saturday night the Chiefs travel to Merrittt for another large game. Merritt is currently y in seconds place, nine points up on the Chiefs, who w ho have three games in hand. Early notice on this, and we will be reminding everyone next week as we get closer to the game, but please note that after the Chiefs Jan. 22 home game versus the Westside Warriors all fans can join the Chiefs on the ice for a postgame skate. Skate rentals will be available and the game starts at 5 p.m. Feedback can be sent to jb@chilliwackchiefs.net.

WEGENER Hermann

Hermann Wegener passed away peacefully on Jan. 7th, 2012, in Chilliwack, BC. WEGENER He will be sadly missed by his children Herman Wegener, Hans (Diana) Wegener, Mary-Anne (Mike) Kaiser, and Annamarie (Ted) Douglas, as well as 6 grandchildren, Derek (Shanna), Lonie, Jonathan, Daniel, Mathew, Thao and 2 greatgrandchildren. Hermann was born Feb. 18, 1923 in Ahaus, Germany. As a young man in war-torn Germany he met Maria (nee Gerick) and with the hopes of a better life, Hermann immigrated to Canada in 1951, but promised Maria he would return. Inspired by the beauty of the west coast, he enthusiastically returned to Germany in 1954 to convince Maria and any friends and family he could to come with him to Canada. Hermann and Maria married in Vancouver, Sept. 19, 1955. They started their family in Powell River on the Sunshine Coast, then moved to Chilliwack in 1964, which they made their permanent home. Herman spent most of

his early (and later) working years employed by mining companies, sending him to some of the most remote, but in his eyes, beautiful areas of BC, Yukon, NWT and Ontario. In the late 60’s and early 70’s Hermann worked at CFB Chilliwack as a cook in the Sergeants Mess. Along the way he forged countless friendships, many of which lasted decades. Hermann’s love was his family, his pleasures were the beautiful scenery, the pristine wilderness, the rugged coastline, the adventure and the life this country had to offer him. He took every opportunity to embrace it all. Herman survived his wife Maria, whom he laid to rest in May 2011. Predeceased by his parents, 4 brothers and 2 sisters. Many thanks to the wonderful staff at Cascade Lodge, for the excellent care they provided him in his last years. Funeral service to take place 11:00 am, Tuesday, January 17 at St Mary’s Catholic Church, Chilliwack.
