Stability reigns in real estate Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Most property values in Chilliwack dipped slightly, or remained stable, according to just released numbers for 2012 from BC Assessment Fraser Valley. “The big story is that things are very similar to last year, with residential values remaining relatively stable,” said deputy assessor John Green. From Langley to Hope, the numbers were fairly consistent, he noted, with increases tending to be higher closer to Vancouver. Notices for 2012 assessments are arriving this week, with more than 187,000 property owners on the list. City officials use the annual assessment roll data as one of the factors in the determination of tax rates. “Most home owners in the Fraser Valley will see minimal changes in the value of their properties,” said Green. The Fraser Valley’s assessment roll increased overall from $85.9 billion last year to $88 billion this year. Most of the growth seen in the region can be attributed to subdivision development, rezoning and new construction. About $139 million was the total value of construction in Chilliwack, according to BC Assessment. A one-year freeze on assessments was put in place by the province in 2009 and 2008 values were used to calculate assessments that year. After the real estate market dip and subsequent correction seen after the global economic crisis of 2008-09, things started leveling off in terms of residential values in 2011 and 2012. A typical Chilliwack house was valued at $251,000 this year, which is down incrementally from $252,000 in 2011. A sample property in Sardis was used by BC Assessment for establishing a benchmark value, and it’s always a reflection of the movement on the local marketplace.

New year brings new school in Rosedale Katie Bartel The Progress Excitement buzzed amongst Rosedale elementary’s kindergarten students Tuesday morning. Bundled up in winter jackets and rain boots, the students looked back at their old school one last time and said goodbye before walking the now familiar 25-minute journey to their new school. Unlike their older counterparts and teachers, these students don’t have the years of nostalgia for their old school built within them. For them, move-in day at the new Rosedale kindergarten to Grade 9 school was like a second helping of Christmas. “Hi ho, hi ho, it’s off to our new school we go,” they sang

Kindergarten teacher Garry Penner looks back at Rosedale elementary one last time as he and about 30 students leave the school to walk to their new school on Tuesday morning. The students, and some parents and teachers, walked from the old school to the new Rosedale traditional community school on their first day back. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

as they marched away from the old school. Since the start of the school year, kindergarten teachers Garry Penner and Gay Henderson have been guiding their classes on regular walks to see the progression and development of their new school. It only seemed right for them to do the same on the first day of the Rosedale traditional community school opening. “I believe this [walk] is a wonderful opportunity for the children to celebrate the first day at our new school and to create lasting memories for themselves,” said Mr. Penner. Along the route, they waved goodbye to the holly tree on McGrath Road, and said happy new year to the barking white dog behind a fence on Yale Road. They waved to the clerk inside

the local gas station, greeted a friendly neighbour across the street, and picked up an elderly resident who, too, had been itching to get into the new school. They jumped over puddles, authoritatively held their hands out in the stop position as they crossed streets, and “jiggle jogged” to catch up to the rest of the group when their little legs fell behind. The whole way, sounds of giggles and sing-song chatter, and anticipation for the great big new playground, “that has a spider web and monkey bars,” filled the air. With just a couple more blocks to go, MacKenzie Pollard could barely contain himself. “We’re almost there! We’re almost at our new school!” he shouted out. They pointed at the new build-

ing, way bigger than the old one, peered into the library windows lined with a multitude of computers, and flushed out nearly every joyous exclamation in their vocabulary. “Wow!” “Cool!” “Awesome!” Upon entering their new classroom, it took only minutes for the most exciting part of all to be unanimously chosen: the kindergarten washrooms. “The sink is tiny, it’s like down low, and the soap is down low, and the dry hands is down low, and the toilet is down low, and it flushes all by itself,” said Ethan Fleming, not taking a breath, his eyes bulging, and his arms flying all over the place. A great start to the next nine and half years at Rosedale traditional community school.

Special Report

Class size concerns forecast danger ahead Katie Bartel The Progress Two years ago, Eric Munshaw gave Chilliwack school district an ultimatum: limit shop classes to 24 students or he quits. After nearly 30 years teaching tech-ed courses, Munshaw felt he could no longer ensure the safety of his students. His concern was not his abilities; Munshaw is certified in Level 2 first aid, and was trained as a journeyman. It stemmed from administrative and government decision making. His classes were “over-capacitated.” He had several students with special needs. He had heavy duty power tools in operation. For Munshaw, a perfect storm was brewing. Just two months after bringing his concerns about crowded classes to a Chilliwack public board of education meeting in 2009, Munshaw’s worst fears came within a half centimetre of coming true. One of his students nearly ran his hand through a meat-cutting bandsaw. Had Munshaw not been there to clamp the kid’s hand down on the table, the saw would have cut right through the section between his thumb and forefinger. “Without me being in the right place at the right time, I wouldn’t have known something was wrong until I had heard the kid screaming,” said Munshaw. Munshaw later met with the district’s senior executive and told them if numbers were not limited to 24, he would resign.

“I felt I was in an ethical dilemma, that I could not safely supervise these numbers,” he said. Bob Patterson, then assistant superintendent, convinced Munshaw to rescind his ultimatum and to take the fight provincially. Two years later, Munshaw is one of six industrial education teachers to collaborate on the BC Technology Education Association’s (BCTEA) Best Practices Guide for Industrial Education.

The guide, which was released in October, is an attempt to put in place official rules and regulations for industrial education classes in B.C.. Safely managing classes has become more difficult in recent years with shops hovering between 25 and 30 students, some as high as 35. The BCTEA is adamant tech-ed classes have no more than 20 students.

For years shop classes ranged between 20 and 24 students in rooms designed for 24 work stations. Class size regulations, however, were never officially stipulated. When Bill 33 was passed by the B.C. Education Ministry in 2009, the number of students in a shop class increased across the province. As did the fear of shop teachers. Bill 33, among other things, enabled class size in grades 4-7 to exceed 30 students with teacher con-

sent, and in grades 8-12 with teacher consultation. “Teachers are afraid,” said Munshaw. “We’ve been stretched to the point where it’s no longer a manageable situation. “When you put too many kids in a room like this, it’s a recipe for disaster. The risk of accident is no longer possible, it’s probable.” Last May, an 18-year-old Ottawa high school student died after a 55-gallon drum containing oil residue exploded in his automotive class. Since 2007, there have been 705 reported injuries in industrial ed classes in B.C.; 24 from the Chilliwack school district, 17 of which occurred in the last year. The best practices guide is aimed at preventing injuries. The guide cites documents from across Canada, the United States, New Zealand and the Workers Compensation Board. It provides guidelines for teacher qualification, training for education assistants, facility design, and class size and composition. BCTEA expects all school districts to be in alignment with its class size recommendation of no more than 20 students per class by September 2012. “Having done our due diligence [with this report] the burden is now on the employer,” said Munshaw. “Should an accident occur, we believe all upper management, including administration, school board trustees, Ministry of Education, and government, could be sued if this is ignored.” Continued: GUIDE/ p11

Trades training opens window of opportunity for students Katie Bartel The Progress For Steve Clegg, school came easy. The Chilliwack woodworker got consistent As and Bs all the way through. But academics didn’t thrill him. Woodworking did. Clegg, 27, has been messing around in wood shops since he was a toddler. His dad was a hobby woodman, and the two spent hours creating knick knacks. Now, he’s making a career of it. After discovering he wasn’t suited for a desk job, Clegg, a BCIT business graduate, started Clegg Woodcrafts in Ryder Lake two years ago. His business, which recently entered the international market, utilizes salvaged wood to create free form sculptures, plaques, and unique household items such as night tables, jewelry stands, cutting boards and more.

Some of the projects and workarounds he learned in his Grade 8 industrial education class at Mt. Slesse middle school, he still uses today. “My first project in [Eric Munshaw’s] class was a cutting board,” said Clegg. “I asked if I could do something different, and Eric looked at me with a huge grin on his face.” Clegg produced a nonlinear cutting board that featured two different types of wood. “It was the first cutting board I ever made, and now it’s one of my best sellers,” he said. “Having taken that class, it gave me something to fall back on.” By offering industrial education and trades courses in B.C., schools are giving a wider spectrum of students opportunities for success. In Chilliwack, the secondary school apprenticeship

program (SSA) currently has 160 students enrolled, a figure that continually increases by approximately 12 new students every month. The SSA program enables students 15 years or older to register as an apprentice and receive credits towards graduation through work experience hours. Since starting in 1995, well over 1,000 Chilliwack students have completed the program. While some are more academically inclined like Clegg was, many are not. “These are kids who like working with their hands; they’re definitely hands-on learners,” said Garry Wall, retired SSA coordinator, who started Chilliwack’s program. “Without trades [in school], you’d have a bunch of dropouts.” Not only are these courses enabling more students to be successful in school, they’re also preparing the future

workforce and boosting the local economy. Last year 15 SSA welding students were hired by Tycrop Manufacturing in

Rosedale right out of graduation. Several students have also been offered part-time jobs at Tycrop. Currently there are 18 SSA students

completing their Level 1 technical training in welding; by graduation, they will be fully employable. As well, several Continued: TRADES/ p11

The crime-fighting efforts of Chilliwack teens dressed as comic-book heroes has hit a snag as the RCMP have apparently scooped their costumes as part of a crime investigation. “We want to let everyone know that we want to continue to expose these men whom are on the prowl for underage children,” one of the teens writes on their To Troll A Predator Facebook page. But it seems the RCMP seized the costumes shortly after the teens had lured a man to a Chilliwack restaurant on Dec. 4 with promises of sex from a fictional 15-year-old girl. “Keep in mind we never even confronted this pedo in the suits,” the teenage crime fighter wrote, but an

RCMP commissioner later told him the costumes would not be returned for several months because they are part of the crime investigation. A police officer in the parking lot on Dec. 4 intervened and took the 24-yearold suspect away in a squad car before he was confronted by the teens and video-taped for all to see on YouTube. Chilliwack RCMP media officers could not immediately comment on the alleged seizure of the costumes. However, police officials are on record saying they do not condone vigilantism, and warned the caped crusaders that they are placing themselves in danger. Police also said that online predators already under investigation might evade capture and conviction because of the teens’ well-intentioned but misguided efforts.

News

THERE’S MORE TO A

Three people now seeking the NDP nomination in Chilliwack-Hope Robert Freeman The Progress Gwen O’Mahony, who has become the face of the NDP in the Fraser Valley after two past bids for elected office, announced Tuesday that she’ll run for nomination as the party’s candidate in the upcoming byelection. NDP officials also announced Tuesday that a nomination meeting will be held Jan. 28 starting at 1 p.m. at the Landing Sports Centre in Chilliwack. Nominations for candidates close on Jan. 6 at 5 p.m. Two candidates for the nomination, Dennis Adamson and Kathleen Stephany, have already announced their intentions. “I think it’s going to be a hot (nomination) contest, if you look at the calibre of the other candidates,” O’Mahony said. Adamson is the area director for Yale at the Fraser Valley Regional District, and as an outspoken critic of “conflict” gravel mines has built a reputation as a peoples’ politician. Stephany, a nursing ethics

professor who ran as the NDP candidate in Langley in the 2009 provincial election, gained a “whistleblower” reputation in 2005 when she was in charge of special investigations at the BC Coroner’s Office. O’Mahony led the NDP to a second-place finish in the Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon riding in last May’s federal election, and to second-place in the 2009 provincial election, with a respectable 33 per cent of the vote in the conservative stronghold of Chilliwack-Hope. BC Liberal Barry Penner won the riding with 53 per cent of the vote. But Penner’s announcement late last year that he intends to resign from politics sparked a byelection that will soon become the political focus of the province. No date has yet been set for the byelection. O’Mahony said she has knocked on more than 11,000 doors in her election campaigns, and attended all kinds of public meetings even when no election was at hand.

“I’ve literally been the front line of the party,” she said. “I do have my finger on the pulse of the voters.” BC NDP Leader Adrian Dix will be the guest speaker at the nomination meeting. BC Conservatives meet Jan. 17 at the Cultus Lake Community Hall to select a candidate, but so far criminology professor John Martin is the only declared candidate. The meeting is expected to start at 7 p.m. BC Liberals have not selected a date or location yet for their nomination meeting — and no candidate has come forward. B.C. Premier Christy Clark told The Progress that “governments almost always lose byelections,” but the party would field “an outstanding candidate” anyway. However, despite the odds against a BC Liberal victory, Clark said it would be “bizarre” if the strongly conservative riding of Chilliwack-Hope sent an NDP MLA to Victoria. rfreeman@theprogress.com twitter.com/paperboy2

News Reverse logging approval in spotted owl habitat: NDP MP Robert Freeman The Progress NDP MP Peter Julian is calling on the B.C. government to reverse its approval of logging in

spotted owl habitat in the Chilliwack River Valley. Or else the federal government will intervene to protect the endangered owl using the Species At Risk Act (SARA), he told

The Progress, after a Dec. 20 tour of the spotted owl habitat near Post Creek. However, even SARA may not be strong enough to protect the owl’s old growth habi-

tat there, and the whole issue may yet end up in court, he said. Which is where it was headed five years ago, when the B.C. government announced a cap-

But Glen Thompson, a spokesman for the Friends of the Chilliwack River Valley citizens’ group, said he feels Penner must have known about the approval and had at least an obligation as the MLA to inform area residents. Thompson said he wants to know “the truth� of Penner’s exact role in the decision before he steps down as the riding’s MLA. “A habitat protection area is like a park,� he said. “You just don’t log those things.� Julian refused to be drawn into political finger-pointing, saying “everyone can play a role� in protecting the spotted owl “including the sitting MLA.� “The responsible thing for the provincial government to do is to reverse the decision and get back to the status quo,� he said.

Foy said it made no sense for the government to embark on the breeding program without providing the habitat spotted owls need to survive. But Post Creek residents learned last fall that the B.C. government had quietly approved logging in the Wildlife Habitat Area (WHA), justifying its decision by expanding the WHA boundaries and noting the area proposed for logging is a tiny fraction of the total protected in B.C. for the spotted owl.

Safety in the classroom Building a stronger and more prosperous British Columbia will take more than academic excellence. If we want a diverse and sustainable economy, we’re going to have to get our hands a little dirty. We’ll need to ensure our young people have the skills necessary to tackle a world that gets more complex with every day. Various governments have acknowledged the need for aggressive skills training. The recent ship building contract awarded to B.C. represents the latest opportunity for a well-trained and technologically proficient workforce. For more than a decade Chilliwack school district has been at the fore in industrial and trades training. But as school budgets continue to shrink, that pressure is being felt in the classroom – not only in Chilliwack, but across the province. (See stories, page 3.) The issue is class size, and whether teachers have the resources to provide training in a safe environment. Clearly many teachers are not convinced they do. They’ve recently authored a best practices guide, aimed at telling government what they need to provide a safe and successful learning experience. Certainly any classroom where textbooks are replaced by heavy machinery, class size and composition takes on additional importance. While a crowded English class might affect student performance, the consequences of a crowded shop class could be fatal. That’s why education officials – who will be meeting with Chilliwack teacher Eric Munshaw next week – need to listen. British Columbia needs a well-trained work force, and is moving in that direction with additional resources being allocated at the post-secondary level. But the provinces cannot ignore the thousands of school children who are gaining their first exposure to a trade at the middle school or secondary school level. Just as an employer has the responsibility to provide a safe workplace, the education ministry has the obligation to ensure student learning is as safe as it can possibly be. ~ Greg Knill, Chilliwack Progress

Harsh year ahead for provincial politics VICTORIA – If the propaganda flowing over “tar sands” crude shipments across B.C. were oil, the province would be out of deficit by now. U.S.-funded professional environmentalists and their aboriginal partners lined up with the NDP last week to peddle a range of half-truths and falsehoods about proposals to pipe diluted bitumen from Alberta to a new port at Kitimat, where tankers would deliver it to Asian markets. They staged a slick news conference in Vancouver where they claimed to have a seamless wall of aboriginal communities the length of B.C. opposing the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline. A 10-year-old girl in a cedar bark hat warned of devastation to the coastal ecology, providing the kind of emotional visual that appeals to urban television audiences who know and care little about science or resource indus-

tries. This event was co-ordinated with the publication of a report warning of huge risks from piping “tar sands” crude. The report was produced by the Natural Resource Defence Council, the Living Oceans Society and the Pembina Institute. These three obscure organizations are among those identified Tom by independent FLETCHER researcher Vivian Krause on her website, www.fairquestions.typepad.com/rethink_campaigns/. These and other environmental groups have received millions from U.S.-based foundations in recent years. Here’s one of many examples of the money trail that Krause has followed. U.S. tax returns

show the Pembina Institute and a B.C. environmental group were paid $200,000 by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund Inc. in 2006-07 “to prevent the development of a pipeline and tanker port” on the B.C. coast. The same Rockefeller fund has investments in competing pipelines going south. Documenting this huge money spill, Krause concludes that U.S. interests are working to stop Canada from exporting oil to Asia so the U.S. will be the only market available. They dress it up as environmentalism; we fall for it. Not surprisingly, the latest “tar sands” scare report was seized on by the B.C. NDP. “The pipeline goes over mountains, across farmland, over the Fraser and Skeena Rivers and straight through the Great Bear Rainforest to the Pacific, where it will be picked up by supertankers trying to navigate our inland coast-

al waters,” said NDP environment critic Rob Fleming. Fleming parroted the report’s claim that diluted bitumen is more likely to cause corrosion in pipes and tankers. Enbridge issued a statement refuting the study. Its oldest bitumen pipeline went into service in 1979, and “a complete metal loss inspection of this line in 2009 revealed no increased risk or incidence of internal corrosion.” Oh, and the proposed pipeline route doesn’t cross the Fraser River. And claims of a huge increase in greenhouse gases from “tar sands” compared to conventional oil are grossly exaggerated. (The vast majority of emissions from all crude sources come when the refined fuel is burned to truck in your groceries or get you to work.) B.C.’s own Wilderness Committee chimed in, but this ecoshow was organized by the local

branch office of San Franciscobased ForestEthics. Those are the folks who blessed us with the faux-aboriginal name “Great Bear Rainforest.” A similar campaign is underway against expansion of the existing Kinder Morgan pipeline from Edmonton to Burnaby, which brings Alberta oilsands crude to ships heading out under the Lions Gate bridge and winding through the Gulf and San Juan Islands to Asia. Tankers have been loading “tar sands” oil in Burnaby for about six years now, but the enviropropagandists didn’t notice until a couple of years ago. Up until then, Fleming and his colleagues raged about maintaining a “moratorium” on B.C. tanker traffic that never existed.

City must enforce leash laws The following incident occurred on Sunday December 11 at Townsend Park. The cause was created by an irresponsible woman who disregarded the city’s bylaw and allowed her two large unleashed dogs to run rampant on Field C. Without warning they blindsided and attacked my wife and I (we’re seniors) while we were enjoying a peaceful walk. The effect of this attack resulted in causing my wife to crash down heavily on to the path, banging her head and sustaining a very painful spiral fracture to her upper right arm

(she is right handed). I immediately called 911, but to get cell phone reception I had to move around the field. When I returned to my stricken wife the dog owner had taken her dogs and fled the scene. The City needs to start spot policing these few self-centred dog owners who disregard the leash bylaw and seriously fine them. When the ambulance arrived it could not gain access into the park and go directly to attend my distressed wife as all the entries were locked and chained. The City should make arrangements for emergency

vehicles to be able to drive in and attend the scene. This is a sports field where serious injuries can happen and their inability to bring their complete equipment right to the incident could mean life or death or a possible law suit. Finally, we wish to publicly thank the young gentleman who stopped to render assistance. Unfortunately we do not know his name. We understand that he resides in the Copper Ridge area ... “Thank you sir for your kindness and compassion”

Simpson Notaries would like to congratulate Rita Blanchette on her retirement and thank her for 24 years of dedicated service as in-house accountant and office manager. Rita has been a mentor to many of our staff through the years and a guiding force behind our commitment to professionalism and customer service. Although she will be greatly missed, we wish her the very best in her retirement. We know that her huge circle of friends, church family and beloved children, grandchildren and extended family will benefit from her new free time. Rita’s retirement is well earned and we are very pleased that she will now have more time to pursue her passions for community service, entertaining and travel. Of one thing we have no doubt - Rita will be busier in retirement than most people half her age! Her vitality and commitment to the service of others has been and will continue to be an inspiration to us all.

Canada Post urged to change delivery policy I am writing to inform and advise Canada Post of my opinion regarding the practice of safe dropping parcels outside of apartment doors. Following the loss of a parcel as a result of this practice, my wife filed an online complaint. When the worker arrived at the door the following day I spoke with the postal worker and later the worker’s super visor who informed that this was common practice and within the policy and practices of postal parcel delivery. I could however opt out if I did not want this to be done. When I questioned

the practice, with the online policy in front of me, the rationale given by the supervisor was that while it is not acceptable to leave a parcel in the open, for example on someone’s doorstep, in plain sight, in a single family dwelling (this is the noted example online), it was perfectly acceptable to leave the parcel on the floor outside the door of an apartment, in plain sight, as it was inside of the apartment building and therefore not out in the open. Let’s consider this from a comparative standpoint as it relates to normal mail deliver y. Single family dwellings as well as

most rural locations, in my experience, most often have mailboxes with a simple flap door that is not locked and can be accessed by anyone. Apar tments on the other hand have banks of keyed locked mailboxes. Now these locks, it would seem to me, indicate that the potential for mail to be at risk is actually higher for an apartment dweller than it would be for a person living in a single family dwelling. Something that to me is obvious in hindsight following our loss. As I indicated to the supervisor the option of not having my mail at risk of being sto-

len, (quite easy to do within the concealing hallways of an apartment building, we don’t exactly have neighbors who can look out their windows to have our backs), is a given, and that I would be communicating this and my concerns to yourself, as well as the local newspaper, with the hope, and dare I say expectation in the current light, that this practice be reviewed, stopped, and/or, at the very least, others be alerted to this practice to provide them the opportunity to opt out if they so choose.

Special Report

Demand for skilled trades expected to continue growing TRADES from p3 SSA students split their school day with their work day, going to school in the morning, and then working in the afternoon. “These kids are becoming taxpayers at a really young age,” said Wall. “A kid that’s working in the trades starts paying taxes right at 16 or 17 already – they’re contributing

to society big time.” For Tom Sellmer, owner of Chilliwack Pro Auto Care, industrial ed classes in high school were his saving grace. “I hated school,” said Sellmer, a 1984 Sardis secondary graduate. Sitting through a math, social studies, science class was like sitting through a root canal. But as soon as he stepped foot in the metalwork

shop, his mind opened to the possibilities around him. Skilled trades, however, are often viewed as a lesser career choice, something only “non-smart” people go into. “When I was in school, it was taboo not to go to university,” said Sellmer. “The school counsellor kept drilling into my head that if I didn’t take certain academic courses, I wouldn’t amount to

anything.” He proved the counsellor wrong. Sellmer apprenticed at Chilliwack Pro Auto Care after graduation. By 1989, he was managing the shop, and by 1995, he was the owner. It’s a career, he said, that not only challenges him physically, but also intellectually. “The human body hasn’t changed in how many years,

Instructors seek guide for ‘best practices’ in classrooms GUIDE from p3 Maureen Carradice, secretary treasurer of Chilliwack school district told The Progress it is expected that the recommendations of the best practices guide will be reviewed in the spring, along with the district’s other needs and requirements, when staffing allocations are established for the 201213 school year. That’s not good enough for parent Enid Miller. Miller’s 16-year-old son, who’s currently

enrolled in welding at Sardis secondary, has been taking tech-ed since middle school and has excelled in his courses. But for four years now, Miller, who has been surrounded by mechanics her whole life, has had a pit of fear in her belly. The classes are too large, she said. “He’s working with acetylene torches, we’re talking flammable,

kaboom equipment,” she said. “I want to know he’s going to be safe in class and trained properly. “As a parent, it’s hard to stand back and say I don’t want him to take a class because it’s unsafe. I have to have faith in my son, his teachers and the school, but I think it’s unfair that our government and school board is forcing this onto our teachers.

“Believe me, if anything happens to my son, the school board and government will be talking to my lawyer real quick.” Members of the BC Technology Education Association, including Munshaw, are meeting with B.C. Education Minister George Abbott on Jan. 9 to discuss the best practices guide. kbartel@theprogress.com twitter.com/schoolscribe33

but a vehicle changes every day. The technology is forever changing and you have to stay on top of that or else you’ll become a dinosaur – you’re always learning,” he said. “I love my career. It’s a good living; it’s a great living. I wouldn’t change it for anything.” Skilled trades in Canada are in high demand. According to the Skilled

Trades, A Career You Can Build On website, which is funded by the Canadian government, it is estimated that by 2020 Canada will be short one million workers due to lower birth rates and an aging population. Over the next two decades, 40 per cent of new jobs will be in skilled trades. It is believed industrial education in schools will help fill that need.

2011 coolest year since 1996 Last year was the coolest in Chilliwack since 1996 with mean temperatures 0.27 degrees Celsius below normal, reports Roger Pannett, Environment Canada’s weather observer. Total annual precipitation was also below normal for the 14th consecutive year, although the total number of days with precipitation was 121 per cent above normal, he said. There were 207 days of rain in 2011, compared to the 30-year average of 161 days. A total 1,604.5

mm of rain fell in 2011 compared to the 1,750.7 mm in the 30-year average. Snowfall brought the total precipitation in Chilliwack to 1,701.3 in 2011 and 1,880.1 mm for the 30-year average. The thermometer plunged to -10 degrees Celsius on Feb. 25, setting a record-breaking low for the day, and rose to 31.5 degrees Celsius on Sept. 11 setting a record high for that day. But this was the lowest maximum summer temperature in over 30 years, Pannett said.

Three flee house fire A 46-year-old Chilliwack woman escaped unharmed when a mattress she was sleeping on caught fire early Wednesday morning. Two younger occupants, sleeping in the basement, also escaped, with minor burns to their feet caused when they walked through burning debris as they tried to fight the fire with an extinguisher. Damage to the house in the 46000-block Maple Avenue was limited to light smoke damage because the fire was contained to the bedroom as the door was closed before the three occupants fled the two-storey home. The three were alerted by working smoke alarms activated by the 6:40 a.m. fire. The cause of the fire is under investigation, but it is not considered suspicious.

Two babies in a double stroller overturned in the Vedder River after it slipped from the hands of one of the mothers pushing it along the Vedder River Trail Tuesday. “The stroller landed on its side submerging one of the babies for a few seconds,� Const. Tracy Wolbeck said in a news release. One of the mothers was treated at hospital for a badly twisted ankle, but neither of the babies was injured. She said the mothers of both babies, and a man who had been walking on the trail, chased after the stroller as it rolled down an embankment into the river. “This is every parent’s worst nightmare,� said Wolbeck.

were your challenges? Take time to celebrate your successes and to acknowledge the areas where you struggled. Positive and negative experiences shape who you are and you can learn from both. Where am I right now? Remember that the only person you can work on is the person you are right now. It makes no difference if you think you should be further ahead than you are now (in fitness, or other avenues). What matters is where you actually are at present. Do not be discouraged by the difference between where you are and where you think you should be. Where do I want to be? Think about what you can achieve in the next year. Perhaps you would like to lose ten pounds or would like to be able to complete a triathlon. Pick goals that excite you. Why is that important to me? Perhaps the reason many resolutions fail is that many people use the start of a new year as their motivation for change. A calendar

Write down your reasons and read Tanja them daily to SHAW ensure you stay committed to your goal. How will you get there? A plan is essential for success. For example, saying you will lose ten pounds is not enough to be successful. Instead, create a plan to achieve your goal. Your plan should include short term achievable markers of success. An example for weight loss would be to keep a food journal, cut out simple carbohydrates, and see a personal trainer once a week.

CSOPA hopping with Frog and Toad Chilliwack School of Performing Arts is ready to present the smash-hit musical A Year With Frog and Toad. Opening Jan. 12 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, the show is based on the children’s books, follows two woodland friends on their sweet, song-filled adventures. Frog and Toad, played by CSOPA veterans Jacklyn Kirsch and Brittany Clough, is a rollicking ride for kids of all ages. The pair of amphibian friends awaken from hibernation and get busy with everything from planting a garden to flying kites, swimming, sledding, or just enjoying a warm bowl of soup. It’s a Tony-nominated musical based on F I N E

Tough task for Chiefs against top-ranked teams

Eric J. Welsh, The Progress The Chilliwack Chiefs have two extremely tough tests ahead as they try to get 2012 off to a good start. The local BCHL team faces the league’s top team, the Penticton Vees, on Friday night before taking on the Coastal conference leading Cowichan Valley Capitals Saturday. Having lost two straight coming out of the Christmas break, and three straight overall, the Chiefs are in tough to end the slide. “We’ve got two first place teams coming in, and it is certainly going to be tough,” Chilliwack head coach Harvey Smyl said on Wednesday. Smyl’s Chiefs are coming off a disappointing 1-0 shutout loss at the hands of Merritt last Friday. Before that, they dropped games to Prince George (4-2, Dec. 28) and Vernon (6-3, Dec. 18). Chilliwack has maintained their hold on third place in the Interior conference standings, but they trail Merritt by five points and have Prince George and Vernon breathing down their collective necks. The top four in each conference make the playoffs, making it a guarantee that one good team will eventually be left on the outside looking in. Chiefs head coach Harvey Smyl doesn’t intend to miss the post-

season for the first time in his BCHL coaching career, making two points now just as crucial as two points in midMarch. In their most recent game, Brent Fletcher had the only goal and Lino Chimienti stopped 20 shots as the Cents recorded the road shutout. It was the second straight flat effort for the Chiefs coming out of the holiday break, but Smyl expects a far more energized effort following a good week of practice. “I thought we were flat for the most part, although I thought we played fairly well defensively,” Smyl noted. “The difference was that we had no penetration in the offensive zone. We didn’t get rebounds and second opportunities. But we’re hoping that with a good week of work, we’ll be able to get things done.” The last meeting between the Chiefs and Vees is one that Smyl and company would love to forget, a 9-0 loss Nov. 26 in Penticton. Chilliwack will have do a lot of things right to get a win against a Vees team that has taken just three regulation time losses this season. “We certainly need to slow them down in the neutral zone, and we can’t give them space because they’ve so much got speed and skill,” Smyl said. “We definitely can’t let them get power play opportunities. There are a lot of things we need to make sure we do properly to give ourselves a chance to win.” Saturday night pits the Chiefs against another nationally ranked team as the Cowichan Valley Capitals visit Prospera Centre for the only time this year. The Caps lead the Coastal conference with a record of 21-9-

Alexandre Perron-Fontaine (left) and goaltender Mitch Gillam (right) opened their post-Christmas schedule with a 4-2 loss to Trevor Esau and the Prince George Spruce Kings last Wednesday. Chilliwack lost 1-0 to Merritt on Friday and head into a pair of very tough weekend games versus Penticton and Cowichan Valley. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

1-4, combining stingy defence with an explosive offence. Only Penticton and Powell River have surrendered fewer goals than Cowichan Valley, with goaltenders Derek Dun (starter) and Brady Rouleau (backup) doing good work between the pipes. Offensively, the Caps boast four point-pergame players, including 20-year-old Matt Brown. The talented Nova Scotian leads the team with 24 goals (and 41 points) in 34 games. Kamloops native Devin Gannon leads the team in points with 48 (17 goals), with Jacob Charles and Richard

Vanderhoek also provide ppg production. “They’re not quite as skilled as Penticton, but they’re very solid because of the teamfirst concept they’ve got going on,” Smyl said. “They’re big and strong. They work hard and they’ve got the true identity of a team. That alone can give you a lot of success.” The Caps made a move earlier this week to add more firepower up front, picking up Brent Knowles from the Salmon Arm Silverbacks in exchange for Travis Stephens and future considerations. Knowles had 37 points in 34 games and rejoins

former Salmon Arm teammate Gannon. The two were a dynamite combination in last season’s playoffs for the Silverbacks and Caps associate coach Jim Ingram expects to put them together and see what happens. “We didn’t expect to be here,’’ Ingram said of the team’s placing atop the Coastal Conference. “We wanted to put the effort in. If the opportunity to improve wasn’t taken, then what are we doing?’’ With the BCHL trade deadline fast approaching, Smyl may be next in line to bolster his lineup. The Chiefs are cur-

rently running with four 20-year-olds (Ty Miller, Kit Sitterley, Michael Spring and Matthew Hutchinson). That leaves Smyl with the option to add two more. “There’s an appetite on our part to add to our club, but not by taking away from our club,” Smyl said. “We’re in position now to make the playoffs and we want to be in the same situation next year, so we’re not going to sell the farm and sacrifice the future for the present.” ● Tis the season for scholarship announcements.

Several BCHLers committed to NCAA programs over the last two weeks, including one Chief. Pennsylvania native David Thompson has signed on at Penn State, and will skate with the Nittany Lions starting in the 2013-14 season. “He’s just settling in to become a nasty player to play against with all kinds of ability,” Smyl said. “He’s very deserving of this scholarship. It’s nice to see him rewarded for all his hard work.” Thompson (19 years old) leads all Chief blueliners in scoring with four goals and 16 points in 33 games.

Chiefs Chi f fface fi firsts t It was just the third time in 497 home games thatt the Chiefs have been shut out, writes Jacob Bestebroer The post-Christmas portion of the schedule has started with a couple of tough home ice losses for the Chiefs. A 4-2 loss to the Prince George Spruce Kings on ‘Fill the Rink for the Food Bank’ night was the first loss for the Chiefs this season when they’ve scored the first goal. Prior to that, the Chiefs were a perfect 12-0 when scoring first. The T he score however took a back seat to the event that night as more than 3,200 fans in attendance donated more than 9,000 items to the Salvation Army Food Bank. Friday’s 1-0 loss to the Merritt Centennials had an even rarer element to it, as it was justt the third time in 497 regular season home games in Chilliwack that the Chiefs have been shutout. The last time it happened was Jan. 10, 2004 when the Alberni Valley Bulldogs blanked them 5-0. The first time it happened was Harvey Smyl’s first home game behind the Chiefs bench, a 1-0 setback to the Kelowna Spartans on Sep. 25, 1993. The Chiefs are back on home ice for a pairr of games this weekend and both will be tough tests. Friday they face the red hot Penticton Vees, V ees, who won 18 straight games prior to the Christmas break. Saturday night the Coastal conference leading Cowichan Valley Capitals are here. Saturday is also BMO Dash for Cash Night. During the second intermission, six contestants will take to the ice to scoop up as manyy loonies as they can in 60 seconds. This event is a blast to participate in. I speak from experience as I took part in the first one during the 199596 season. I think I ended up with 368 dollars. There T here are a few rules for participants including no coats or hoodies. If you want the opportunity to take part in this year’s Dash for Cash, make sure you follow w the Chiefs on twitter and Facebook. One contestant will be chosen using both Facebook and twitter. The Facebook contest details were still being worked on Wednesday but make sure to check the Chiefs Facebook page on Thursdayy for more details. If you are at the game and follow the Chiefs on twitter, check your twitter feed at the start off the game to learn more about how you can gett on the ice to dash for cash. Starting at last week’s games the Chiefs started taking song requests during the game vvia ia twitter. The response was surprisingly positive. We had close to thirty requests at Friday’s game. Remember though, if the lyrics of the song contain words that I would not be allowed to use in this article, best not to bother requesting it. The BCHL’s trade deadline is Jan. 10, and as there is every year, expect a flurry of deals overr the next few days. It’s a fun time for fans but a vvery ery anxious one for players.

ARIES - Mar 21/Apr 20 Aries, you may have trouble connecting with family this week. You are very busy with personal issues and other obligations. It may seem frustrating, but keep your head up. TAURUS - Apr 21/May 21 Taurus, you have a generous spirit, but sometimes you can be just a little bit too generous. Don’t go overboard this week when buying gifts for those close to you. GEMINI - May 22/Jun 21 Gemini, you have always been very practical when it comes to matters of finance. Sometimes, however, the lure of shopping can try your resolve. CANCER - Jun 22/Jul 22 Cancer, you are in a high point in

your career, and you don’t want to lose the momentum. But you could feel pulled in too many directions this week to impact the job. LEO - Jul 23/Aug 23 You have unusually low levels of energy this week, Leo. There isn’t much you can do about it other than prioritize your tasks so you can accomplish the most pressing things. VIRGO - Aug 24/Sept 22 Virgo, any trips that you are planning this week could be delayed by some mechanical difficulties. You’ll get there eventually, but it could take a while. LIBRA - Sept 23/Oct 23 Libra, don’t take anything at face value this week and try to avoid

gossip as much as possible. This is achieved by surrounding yourself with gracious people. SCORPIO - Oct 24/Nov 22 You are bound to have a good time this week, Scorpio. It’s because you will be spending time with your family. Enjoy as much time together as you can, including a good meal. SAGITTARIUS - Nov 23/Dec 21 This is the ideal week to stay inside as much as possible and read or get busy work taken care of. Although it may not be exciting, it doesn’t require a lot of energy. CAPRICORN - Dec 22/Jan 20 Capricorn, this week you may have plans to spend some romantic evenings at home with your partner, but things don’t always work out as expected. Schedule more time later. AQUARIUS - Jan 21/Feb 18 Aquarius, it may seem like the walls are closing in on you, but that’s just because you need a change of scenery. Trade in dull responsibilities for something else. PISCES - Feb 19/Mar 20 Pisces, this week you may find it difficult to concentrate. This is out of character for you, but everyone has an off-day.
