Youth add voice to skate park plans Jennifer Feinberg The Progress The prospect of the new skate park moving to Webster Road is starting to appeal to some of the local users. City council decided last week the skate park will not be built at the Twin Rinks site, alongside the new Sardis library, as originally planned. The Progress headed out to the existing skatepark at Twin Rinks to see what folks had to say about the new location. Curtis Grann, 18, has been riding BMX at Twin Rinks since he was five years old.

KILLER LOOKS!

“This one is just basic,” he said. He lives on the other side of town now, but still returns often to his childhood skate park. The new site is about two kilometres away from the old one, on a city-owned green space set aside for future parklands, within a development by Canada Lands Company known as the “Webster Block” on Webster Road at Keith Wilson Road. “You know it’s not too bad,” Grann said about the new location. “I think it’s kind of in a good spot over there.” What he’d like to see at the new facility is higher “quarter

pipe” metal ramps to do tricks on. Both skateboarders and BMX bike riders will be accommodated in a design-build process starting soon for the project. Grann was stoked to hear that separate areas and features are being considered for bikers and skaters. “I think that will make it way better if we each have our own sides,” he said. Bike riders and skaters have distinctly different needs at a skate park. “Bikers try to get more air so they like higher ledges, while

skateboarders tend to look for lower jumps,” he said. Chad Mabberley, 15 and recuperating from knee surgery, was watching from the sidelines. The BMXer underlined it’s important to cater to each group in different ways while planning the new park facility. “Make it suitable for both bikes and boards,” he recommended. Mabberley said he’d like to see a “vert bowl” or vertical bowl-shaped feature to better defy gravity at the new park. Continued: SKATE/ p17

Life is already different for ChilliwackHope MLA Barry Penner who stepped down from his role as Attorney-General in the B.C. cabinet last week. “The weekend was much quieter,” he reported Monday morning, with Ranger the Cat perched in his lap. “It’s going to be a challenging transition. I’m used to starting my day with all kinds of alerts.” Penner has held a cabinet position for six of his 15 years of holding elected office. Penner announced he won’t be standing for re-election in the upcoming election. He released the news Thursday, as quickly as he could, since the B.C. Liberal election machine was starting to churn about nomination papers. Already the active 45-year-old has gone down from two ringing Blackberrys, to just the one. It’s a big change for the MLA who joined the caucus mid-1990s at just 29. “Taxes were going up and the economy was going down,” he remembered. He didn’t want to reach a ripe old age wondering what it would have been like to serve as MLA. He went for it. “I also felt it was important to have representation from someone who lives here.” He was the longest serving B.C. Environment Minister, fought a successful battle against SE2, and for the installation of B.C.’s first cable wire barrier on Highway 1. Early on he waged an “epic” battle for Chilliwack’s new courthouse building. One of his favourite memories was the traditional First Nations ceremony he witnessed as Aboriginal Relations minister. It was a poignant moment last year when folks from Upper Harrison shut down their diesel generators, and finally obtained a reliable source of electricity, by joining the BC Hydro grid.

Municipal politicians mull election plans Mayor Gaetz running again, but Councillor Pat Clark bows out Jennifer Feinberg The Progress Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz doused speculation she might run for a provincial seat, in the wake of Chilliwack-Hope MLA Barry Penner’s surprise announcement Thursday that he’s stepping down from cabinet. “Lot of people have been asking if I’m going to run for Barry’s position, and the answer is no I will not,” she told The Progress. But Gaetz will definitely be throwing her name in the hat again for the mayor’s chair later this fall. “I will be running as mayor to continue the work we’ve started

and I’m very excited about it,” she said. A desire to continue to serve the city is part of it, and with 12 years under her belt as a city councillor, she said it’s given her a good foundation on which to build. “I love that even as a growing city in Chilliwack, we’ve been able to maintain a small-town feeling.” During her time on council, the city has constructed several multimillion-dollar projects using the “pay-as-you-go” philosophy, like the Evans Road overpass, the new Cultural Centre and the Cheam Centre. “I’m also very proud that we’ve been able to keep taxes so low, and it’s been fun to watch the overall progress the city has made,” she says, adding that residential rates are 32 per cent lower than in Abbotsford. Coun. Pat Clark, however, has made it clear she will not be run-

ning again. That means at least two council seats will be vacant for newcomers in the November election. “It’s been a good run of community service for me,” Clark said. “It feels like the right time to leave. Who knows what other adventures await?” Clark spent nine years on the local school board before serving another eight years on city council. “It’s time to switch it up,” she said. “It’s been an honour and a pleasure throughout the years, to pitch in and be a part of a good team.” Another Chilliwack councillor is thinking about a run for MLA, but not about running for mayor. “I’m giving it some thought,” Chuck Stam said. “Serving in Victoria has always interested me, and up to now we’ve had two very solid people in the MLA seats.”

Stam, who has served on council for 12 years, said he’s in “soulsearching” mode about whether to run for council again. “There’s no rush right now.” He enjoys sitting on council but there’s also something “in my spirit that gets excited when I think of not doing it.” Voters need to balance the need for new blood on council, with the need for continuity and experience, he said. The mayorship is not on his radar because he’d have to sell his building design business and walk away to take the reins of council in that way. “It’s not really appealing right now.” Coun. Ken Huttema is also holding his cards close to his chest about whether he will stand for re-election. “I haven’t made up my mind yet,” he told The Progress. “Hopefully I

Chilliwack joins tributes for Layton Tom Fletcher Black Press Tributes flooded in for federal New Democratic Party leader Jack Layton, who died of cancer early Monday at age 61. Layton’s death comes just months after he led the NDP to Official Opposition status in Canadian Parliament, a first for the party. On July 25, Layton announced he was fighting a second bout of cancer, and was taking time away to seek treatment. The NDP says Layton died peacefully before 5 a.m. Monday at his Toronto home. His wife and fellow MP Olivia Chow and loved ones were with him. Prime Minister Stephen Harper issued a statement in Ottawa. “On behalf of all Canadians, I salute Jack’s contribution to public life, a contribution that will be sorely missed,” Harper said. “I know one thing: Jack gave his fight against cancer everything he had. Indeed, Jack never backed down from any fight.” B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix said: “While the country is the poorer for Jack’s passing, Canada is richer for his immense contribution over a lifetime in politics. Wherever he went and whoever he met, Jack made his mark with his optimism, dynamism and boundless energy. “As we grieve, we also commit ourselves to continue to build on his legacy and the principles he fought for all his political life.” Premier Christy Clark also issued a statement. “It was with great sadness that we learned today of the passing of federal New Democrat Party leader Jack Layton,” Clark said. “A passionate Canadian, Jack Layton was a tireless advocate and his energy, dedication and intelligence have been at the service of Canadians since

will decide shortly. I think it’s an interesting twist now that Barry has resigned. It will likely pique everyone’s interest. It certainly will be interesting for us political junkies.” Coun. Sue Attrill didn’t get enough with the first term on council. “I’m running again,” she said. “I enjoyed it immensely, and I’m looking forward to the next three years.” Coun. Stewart McLean said he’s running for a second term as a councillor. “The first term has been a huge learning curve,” he said. “We have laid the groundwork for a lot of projects and I would like to see them through to fruition.” Council candidates will be filing nomination papers from Oct. 4-14 no later than 4 p.m. jfeinberg@theprogress.com twitter.com/CHWKjourno

his days as a municipal politician.” “Collectively, Canadian hearts are breaking,” national Green Party Leader Elizabeth May said in a statement. “Jack will always be remembered for his unfailing love of Canada and his dedication to this country and its citizens.” In Chilliwack, the loss was also strongly felt. In a statement, Al Ens, president of the Chilliwack Fraser Canyon NDP, said: “Jack’s spirit and fight during the recent federal election campaign – while his body was fighting this cancer – is tribute to his commitment to bringing Canadian politics to a new place.” Chilliwack school trustee and longtime NDP supporter John Henry Harter said Layton can’t be replaced. “Jack was unique, he really did capture people’s imagination,” said Harter in a phone interview with The Progress.

“I think that the activists and the NDP and the people who are really active in the federal scene are going to be taken aback for awhile. “I do believe the NDP is capable of choosing a great leader that will be the leader of the official opposition, but I’m not going to pretend it’s going to be easy to replace Jack, because it’s not. I think people in the NDP will have to get out of the mindset that somehow we’re replacing Jack. We need to find a new leader, but we’re not going to replace Jack.” Retired Conservative MP Chuck Strahl said it was Layton’s “genuineness” that won the hearts and respect of so many. “I think Jack became increasingly popular as time went on because people could sense his genuineness,” said Strahl. “Often leaders want to hold things close Continued: LAYTON/ p18

Layton was a class act

The Chilliwack

Progress

R AESIDE

Canadians were shocked to learn Monday morning of the passing of Jack Layton, federal leader of the opposition and longtime NDP leader, at the age of 61. While many may have had a premonition that Layton would not be able to win his second battle with cancer, they were instinctively rooting for him. He was a genuine person whose likability was a key factor in taking the NDP from 13 seats, when he became leader in 2003, to 103 in the May 2 election. Layton was a man of conviction, but he was also practical. He took the NDP away from some of its more extreme positions towards a party that was more middle of the road, and was able to do so in such a way as to avoid internal splits that could have caused many divisions. His recent success in Quebec is proof of his ability. Quebeckers were clearly tired of the Bloc Quebecois, which for 20 years has harped on Quebec’s problems without presenting workable solutions. Layton, more than any other leader, sensed the void that was being created and made a direct appeal to Quebeckers. As he grew up in Quebec, he had a natural connection, but it was his ability to convince Quebeckers that the NDP would represent their province well that led the party to win so many seats in the recent election. It was truly a victory of breathtaking proportions, and the concurrent relegation of the Bloc Quebecois to just four seats was cheered by all those across the country who want Quebec to not only stay within Canada, but be an important and proud part of the country. It is not insignificant that Layton rose from municipal politics to become NDP leader. The most successful municipal politicians are bridge-builders. They learn to work with people of differing political philosophies, because they know that they are all there for the greater good of the community. Layton brought that kind of pragmatic approach to the national stage, and even when he disagreed heartily with his opponents, he never did so in a nasty, personal manner. He preferred to use his sense of humour. He was a class act.

Science shows more species are at risk According to a recent report in Philosophical Transactions published by the Royal Society, Britain’s Academy of Sciences, it’s time to step up the pace about species conservation. “A global strategy is necessary to achieve the level of coordination, synergy and therefore optimization of resources to achieve the broad goal of conserving mammals worldwide,” wrote authors Carlo Rondinini and Luigi Boitani with the Global Mammal Assessment Program based in Rome’s Sapienza University and Ana Rodrigues with France’s Centre for Functional Ecology. A total of 5,339 mammals are documented globally and, while some of them still maintain healthy populations, the longterm conservation status of many is considered precarious. An estimated 25 per cent of all mammals are threatened with extinction and

their condition is deteriorating while many others are vulnerable or of special concern. They stressed that a global conservation strategy would help to preserving numbers but, as of now, there isn’t any widely recognized approach in play to solve this problem despite all the Margaret datasets on each individual speEVANS cies. They want to see a global interlocking strategy that can build from the existing material and dialogue seen at the Convention for Biological Diversity along the lines that were done for the Global Plant Conservation Strategy. When it comes to factors that threaten species, they can be many and varied and predomi-

nantly it has been habitat loss. But complicating the mix is climate change and many species are already getting a head’s up on that and making a move. Literally. In a major compilation of studies on species migrations, biologists at the U.K.’s University of York have found there is a clear trend in movements toward cooler climates. And, significantly, animals are responding to a warming world and moving to cooler climates up to three times faster than anticipated. The researchers analyzed data on over 2,000 animal and plant species including birds, mammals, reptiles, insects, spiders, other invertebrates, and plants. For instance the comma butterfly has moved 220 kilometres north from central England to Edinburgh in just two decades. Moths have moved on average 67 metres uphill on Mount Kinabalu

in Borneo. Warmer waters are altering Pacific salmon spawning and migration routes. Some species have moved to higher elevations at 12.2 metres per decade and, more dramatically, others have moved to higher latitudes at 17.6 kilometres per decade. The study is the first to show that species are moving the furthest where the climate has warmed the most, clearly linking global warming with species adaptation “This research shows that it is global warming that is causing species to move toward the poles and to higher elevations,” said lead author Dr. I-Ching Chen, previously a PhD student at York and now a researcher at the Academia Sinica in Taiwan. “We have for the first time shown that the amount by which the distributions of species have changed is correlated with the amount the climate has

changed in that region.” Some species have moved more slowly than expected, some have not moved, and some have retreated. But other species have moved rapidly, perhaps driven by other factors that a warming climate is also triggering. “These changes are equivalent to animals and plants shifting away from the Equator at around 20 cm per hour for every hour of the day, every day of the year,” said project leader Chris Thomas, professor of conservation biology at York. “This has been going on for the last 40 years and is set to continue for at least the rest of this century.” In the coming years that recommended global conservation mammal strategy alongside strategies that address the needs of all other life forms is going to come sharply into focus.

Pirates earn applause

Dead bear a sad comment

The Pirates of Penzance, at the Cultural Center last week, was a knockout production, worthy of a much bigger city. We’re incredibly lucky to have such talent here at home. Everything was exactly right. The cast could act as well as sing, and their singing was a pleasure to hear. The orchestra was spot on; the sets were simple but effective, the production unfussy-my oh my, it was such a treat. The Chilliwack Opera Troupe has got itself off to a splendid start and I can hardly wait for their next production.

Headlines on Thursday, 18 Aug. 18, “A fed bear becomes a dead bear,” is endorsement of how sick our society has become. The bear was left languishing in a metal cage for 12 hours, tormented by human “garbage”, while waiting to be exterminated. This is surely a wakeup call for municipal authority to exercise strict control over refuse and garbage control, with appropriate fines for violators. This whole episode is both shameful and absolute preventable.

Try, try again when fishing It’s hard to find a good fishing spot. You need to find a place that has fish — lots of fish to catch and eat. The best times to go fishing at are six in the morning and 9 p.m. That’s when the bugs come out and the fish start jumping. They eat bugs. This is why you stick bait on your hooks. I learned about fishing from Chilliwack Dart and Tackle. They taught me where to go fishing, and they gave me a rod for free because I hadn’t saved enough money for one. They told me to go fishing in the Vedder River. I haven’t been able to try fishing at the Vedder yet, but I will try in two days. When we tried finding a spot at Vedder, it was too high and we couldn’t find a spot. I tried fishing at the canal by the highway, but it was too muddy. I tried fishing at the slough, but there were too many mosquitoes. And I tried at Kawkawa Lake. There was fish jumping but I didn’t catch anything. Sometimes I go with friends, and sometimes I go by myself. My friend almost caught a fish at

the slough. I saw someone who caught five fish. And at Kawkawa, I tried on the dock and tried in the water. And I am trying Cultus Lake. I would try fishing at Cultus Lake and I hope I catch a fish so I can have fish for supper because it is good. The only thing is, fish are slimy, gross and hard to gut. But fish eggs are good bait.

If you’re planning an extended fall or winter trip south in search of sunny blue skies, you are probably also planning your travel insurance. If you’re like many snowbirds, you may even have an annual policy to cover you throughout the year. However, if you are heading away for a longer period of time, here are a few travel insurance factors to consider before driving or jetting off:

Chilliwack RCMP are looking for two suspects after a taxi cab driver was robbed at knifepoint Wednesday night. The 29-year-old driver suffered minor injuries when a passenger grabbed him by the neck and held a knife to his throat. The incident began shortly before midnight. According to police, a male and female were picked up from a residence in the area of Wellington Avenue and Ashwell Road shortly after 11 pm and asked to be taken to Rosedale. The couple told the driver that they would pay him when they got to their destination. The taxi arrived in the area of Yale Road and Ford Road. The male suspect grabbed

from his home following a search warrant. The guilty plea was made Jan. 31. He lived in a Rosedale trailer park for 20 years, but more recently had moved into Chilliwack. Alleged criminal sexual acts committed by Wright, happened while the children were in his care. On the heels of his arrest, he was given no contact conditions for anyone under 16, and a no go order for parks, schools, playgrounds, day care centres, pools, rinks and community centre, and no possession of any weapons. Wright will be sentenced Sept. 20, said police. “Investigation to date has revealed that Mr. Wright was once a hockey coach,� said Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth. “Chilliwack RCMP Serious Crime Section currently investigating and considering the possibility of other victims and are asking them to come forward.� Anyone who is a victim of Wright, or has information that he has breached the conditions of his release are asked to call the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611.

Police remind public to keep doors and windows locked hot and it’s nice to sleep with a door or a window open, but we don’t want this type of incident to happen again,” she said. The call came into RCMP just after midnight Sunday. The male was described about 30 with a possible goatee, in tan pants or shorts. So far it’s an “isolated incident,” according to police, and no other reports have come in to Serious Crime officers, who are investigating.

said. “I don’t think it’s anything we’ll ever see happen. “Metro Vancouver has a decidedly checkered record when it comes to large capital projects.” He cited the water treatment project on the North Shore that’s “hundreds of millions of dollars over budget and still not complete.” Metro still has to spend billions to upgrade its sewage treatment, as well. The local rep doesn’t yet know if he’ll try to practise law again one day. “I’ll be consulting with the Law Society to determine what it would take to get my licence back,” he said. Potential career options will have to wait. “We’re going camping at Manning Park,” Penner says in reply to what’s next. “We’re also taking our daughter to her park.” Fintry is a provincial park. It’s not accidental that his daughter’s name rhymes with wintery, and it was snowing the day she was born. “It was wintry for Fintry. So I’m hoping she will love the snow as much as I do.” He’s fairly philosophical about stepping down, and quotes Ecclesiastes 3:1, “For everything there is a season and a time for every matter under heaven.” In the meantime he’s looking back at his lengthy run with great fondness.

tributing to raising up the level of discourse,” he opines. What about that bit about him leaving cabinet to spend more time with family? Unlike some who say it but don’t actually mean it, Penner says he actually means it. “I’m off to Baby Boot Camp soon with mom (Daris) and baby Fintry,” he says, describing a fitness program the family is enrolled in. No, the family bit was not a hollow excuse. “It is the primary reason but there are other factors,” says the firsttime dad and first-time husband. “I’m getting older and I never thought I’d do politics forever.” The next moment he’s back to joking about Ranger the Cat. “There is early speculation that Ranger the Cat might seek the nomination,” he said. “And for the record Ranger is getting along just fine with Fintry despite her habit of pulling out tufts of fur.” What he’ll remember most about serving Chilliwack is just how remarkable the legions of people here are who join volunteer organizations and associations. So will he be freer now to really weigh in on the Metro Vancouver’s WTE incinerator plan? “I already have,” he

Chillibowl Lanes can help spice things up Lee is the new manager of Chillibowl Lanes. He took over nine months ago, and since then has been working to bring the facility back to fighting form. Lanes have been resanded and resurfaced; ball returns and pins have been replaced. And now, with the start of a new league season, Lee is looking forward to welcoming players back for another great year. Chillibowl has 24 lanes of five-pin bowling, located on two floors. The upper floor offers a fun and festive atmosphere, with

Disco Bowling on Wednesday and Friday evenings. It’s a great place for friends to get together, have a good time and test their bowling prowess. On the main floor the atmosphere is a bit more competitive. But it’s still not hard to hear the laughter over the crash of falling pins. And that’s what makes bowling so special, says Lee. It can accommodate a range of skill levels. Even the most inexperienced player can enjoy the thrill of a strike after an evening of gutter balls. “It’s a great place for people to get together,” Lee says. “It’s a great way to bond.” The electronic s r e scoring helps keep n o • T s • Refill s e things simple.

And while the Main Street Campus is still settling into its downtown home, it’s looking for ways it can serve the community. “We’re really kind of asking God what kind of resource we can be,” says Vandop. Promontory is not looking to duplicate services already offered in the downtown. Instead, it wants to complement existing services, or find ways to fill gaps in the community. That may mean offering courses like budgeting, maybe parenting, or helping people cope with divorce. “We’re really at the discussion stage,” Vandop says. Promontory is already building

Promontory Church opened its Main Street Campus in June, and already the church is seeing new faces blossom in its congregation.

Back to School Message 2011-12 On behalf of the Chilliwack Board of Education, I would like to welcome everyone to the 2011-12 school year. We are very thankful for the leadership provided over the past four years by Corinne McCabe and also excited about the appointment of Dr. Michael Audet as our Superintendent for the upcoming school year. Doug McKay Chair

This school year will see the opening of two new schools: Yarrow Elementary Community School and Rosedale Traditional Community School as well as the continued construction on Chilliwack Secondary School.

don’t mix too well as it stands at the old park, and he’s looking forward to a new facility that recognizes that fact. The new park should have “good flow” so users are propelled around the edges without having to push too much, with well-built obstacles and ledges. “A mellower park design is actually good. If they build it too crazy it will turn kids away.”

“The new location is good, too. I live at Garrison Crossing so it’s just an extra five minutes,” Mabberley said. Concerns about size of the proposed new skate park, as well as possible conflicts with neighbours around Twin Rinks, over noise and other issues were the deciding factors in moving it to Webster. City officials decided quickly over the summer to switch locations, to one that will have more eyes on the skate park, with apartment buildings set to be built in the planned development around the park. Three design-build teams were chosen to submit skate park construction proposals to the city, and consultations with users and staff will be conducted as part of the process. Shane Lillies, 30, admitted he’s getting a

bit old for skateboarding himself, but emphasized how important it was to choose a good company to build the new skate facility. “Get someone legit to build it,” he commented. “There’s nothing worse than a crappy skate park.” He heads out to the skate park near the Leisure Centre once in a while. “But this one is too small and crowded with bikes.” The two users groups

Layton remembered LAYTON from p3 to their chest, they don’t want people to see into their private lives, but in this case, Jack was pretty out in the open and I think people responded to that.” Strahl, who is also battling an untreatable lung cancer, said that when he was still a member of Parliament, he and Layton had discussed the “blessing” of the relatively small House of Commons community in tough times. “We talked about how wonderful it is when people rally around you, and tell you they’re thinking about you and praying for you, and about what a remarkable blessing that that is in your life, especially at a time

ATTENTION MOTORISTS Living in our community means sharing the roadways with school buses. Let’s work together to ensure another safe year for our bus students.

Red Overhead Flashing Warning Lights Stop when approaching a school bus from either direction (Min. 10 metres). This means the school bus is stopped to either load or unload students. Wait until the red lights stop flashing and the driver indicates it is safe to proceed or until the bus moves off. Watch for students crossing the road.

Amber Overhead Flashing Warning Lights Slow down and proceed with caution and be prepared to stop as the bus will be stopping to either load or unload students.

The Motor Vehicle Act states that school buses carrying students must stop at all uncontrolled railway crossings, but Chilliwack School District has extended its policy to include stops at ALL railway crossings. -- Buses will display 4-way flashing amber lights to indicate the bus is stopping or stopped.

It is almost impossible to stop 3 or 4 lanes of traffic with Red Overhead Flashing Warning Lights. For student safety, the school district employs Curb Stops similar to the City Transit Bus Service. Whenever possible, the bus proceeds through the intersection, students disembark, then cross the street at the nearest pedestrian crosswalk behind the bus. -- The school bus will display the 4-way Amber Flashing Lights, the same as at railway crossings. -- Extra caution is required by motorists to watch for students crossing the road at the nearest pedestrian crosswalk. Passing is permitted, but please use extreme caution.

Bartel 604.702.5575 • kbartel@theprogress.com

Alyx Hesketh, 18, is one of the faces of Mighty Moose Ice Cream on Yarrow Central Road, where she regularly scoops ice cream for passing customers. JENNA HAUCK/ PROGRESS

Getting the scoop on ice cream scoopers Katie Bartel The Progress If I could eat ice cream all day everyday, I would. Oh yes, I would. Strawberry, vanilla, chocolate, maple walnut, pecan, chocolate chip cookie dough, vanilla swiss almond, brownie bliss, you hand me the flavour and I’d be licking her up, breakfast, lunch, dinner and for multiple snacks and desserts in between. For years my dream job was to work in an ice cream parlour. How could it not be? Earlier this month, I got that opportunity. Mighty Moose Ice Cream in Yarrow is a side-of-the-road ice cream trailer owned by brothers-in-law Lance Martens, 22, and Josh Kraubner, 25. While the brothers run the show behind the scenes, it’s the teenage scoopers on the frontline. Mighty Moose is 16-year-old Sami Hesketh’s first job, and even though she’s only been working it since June, she’s already well versed in the tricks of the trade. It’s not a job for weaklings, she says. “You can’t be weak, you’ve got to have a little muscle so you’re able to scoop.” Sami pulls the scooper out from the rinsing tub, and with a quick jerk of her arm, flicks the excess water off. She braces her body against the freezer, one leg back, one pushed up against it, hip leaning in, and reaches down into the bucket. She scrapes the strawberry cheesecake down from the sides, forms a hefty tennis ball sized scoop in the middle and then piles even more on top until she’s made a single scoop that looks more like five scoops – an ice cream lover’s most delectable dream come true. “There’s no going to the gym for that girl, she’s getting a good wrist workout right there,” an older gentleman heartily remarks as he awaits his cone. Sami smiles. Her right arm, she’s noticed, has gotten bigger.

“But not my left; I’m not ambidextrous.” Sami doesn’t follow a standard measurement when scooping her masterpieces. “I just eyeball it,” she shrugs. “Generally, if you think it’s too big, than it’s probably big enough.” A scooper after my own heart. But not all flavours cooperate. Some, like cookies and cream, are real good for scooping. It’s not too hard like the mint chocolate chip flavour, which is like trying to dig at a rock, or too flaky like the raspberry frozen yogurt, which almost always falls apart within seconds of reaching the cone, or too drippy like the strawberry cheesecake and tiger flavours, which have syrups added to them. “If you’re not careful, they’ll drip all over the place,” says Sami, who ends most shifts with her right arm died blue and pink. At first look, the job of a scooper is a dream come true: sunny days, 16 buckets of different flavoured ice creams to sample, the aroma of fresh homemade waffle cones wafting all around. But Sami’s quick to enlighten me on the reality of the job. It’s not all ice cream bliss, she says. Days at the stand go through peaks and valleys. Scoopers can go hours without a customer, and then, in the blink of an eye, have a busload of them lining up out onto the street. Being the only one behind the counter, it can get stressful, she says, as she assembles a six-person ice cream order at a pace attuned to a 10-person assembly line. If supplies, such as the waffle cones, or desired ice cream flavours run out, she has to make her customers wait – something she does not like to do. “You want to get their ice cream out to them fast, keep them happy,” she says. “And you don’t want to disappoint on size. “When it’s too busy it can be overwhelming for just one person, and when it’s slow it can be really boring because you’re by yourself,” she says.

After about an hour of watching Sami’s every move, taking notes, asking her question after question, it’s my turn. The customer on the other side of the counter requests the hardest flavour to scoop, mint chocolate chip, but I’m not afraid. Grab scooper, check. Flick excess water, check. Brace leg, check. Scoop the mint chocolate ... oh no. The bucket, which is three quarters empty, shifts and bangs into the next bucket over, just as I start scooping, my arm goes flinging into the side, and my scoop looks more like a pebble than a five-tiered tennis ball. Major fail. At the end of my shift, arms sticky, and apron an ice cream mess, I indulge in a cone of my own. (All scoopers get one free ice cream a shift.) Even though I didn’t make much of a scooper, I left the shop in ice cream heaven.

Exceptions to this zone are made for students with special needs and English Language Learners approved by student services, student living beyond the 3 km and 4 km limits who cannot be accommodated at their catchment school due to space limitations and students on programs directed by the Board of Education (Resource programs, Early intervention, Drugs and Alcohol, Aboriginal kindergarten and Alternate Schools). 2.

Feisty Huskers fall to Island Raiders Eric J. Welsh, The Progress The final score read 52-3. The Vancouver Island Raiders did the expected, thumping the Chilliwack Huskers Sunday afternoon at Exhibition Stadium. The loss dropped the Huskers to 0-4. But here’s the thing. Believe it or not, Chilliwack actually played pretty well, and there’s reason to believe they’re heading in the right direction. For half the game, the Huskers were right there with the defending B.C. Football Conference champs. A play here or a play there and the Huskers could have been leading through 30 minutes. Only in the second half, as the Chilliwack offence failed to move the ball and the defence got completely worn down, did the Raiders start to pile up the points. Chilliwack’s first two offensive drives looked promising, but both stalled on failed third-and-short gambles — one an incomplete Hendrickson to Adam Leggott pass, the other a stuffed Ty McConnell run. The Raiders turned the second stop into the game’s first major when quarterback Jordan Yantz found

wideout Dustin Pederson for a five yard scoring strike. The Huskers got three back on a 31 yard Dan Sturm field goal, but the Raiders answered quickly on a 40 yard Yantz to Andrew Smith catch and run. Nanaimo kicker Ryan Jones added a single and a 36 yard field goal to make the halftime score 18-3.

Nanaimo’s first possession of the second half resulted in a 21 yard field goal by Mark Mueller. Five minutes later, Yantz snuck in from the one yard line to put Nanaimo up 28-3. From that point, the Raiders started chewing up the clock with the running game. The gassed Husker defence couldn’t stop the

three-headed rushing monster of Jordan Botel (14 carries, 104 yards), Alex Jobson (10 carries, 66 yards) and Ashton Galloway (four carries, 24 yards). Yantz hooked up with Michael Schaper on a 15 yard touchdown pass to make the score 35-3. On the next Nanaimo series, Yantz snuck it in from

the one to make the score 42-3. Yantz threw one more TD toss, to Andrew Smith, and Mueller added a 20 yard field goal to wrap up the scoring. Hendrickson led the Chilliwack ground game with eight carries for 84 yards. The Maple Ridge native

was five of 18 passing for 32 yards. The Huskers hit the road this weekend, looking for their first win at McLeod Stadium in Langley. The Rams are a winnable opponent, off to a sluggish 1-3 start. Get Huskers information online at www.chilliwackhuskers.org.

Winning weekend for UFV soccer squads Chiefs reveal new radio team

The University of the Fraser Valley Cascades women’s soccer team tied the Carleton University Ravens 1-1 on Sunday in the second of four games against Ontario and Quebec opponents. The defending Canada West gold medalists left for the East on Thursday

and are staying until Thursday. In their first exhibition match, on Saturday, the Cascades blanked the University of Ottawa Gee Gees 2-0. Chilliwack’s Danika Snook assisted on one of the goals. On Sunday, UFV played the Ravens at Keith Harris Stadium, in Ottawa. Midway through the first half, second year forward Carly Neeson (Maple Ridge) set up Surrey’s Samantha Slack with a great lead pass. Slack danced around the Carleton keeper, Anna Morsky, and scored into an empty net to give UFV a 1-0 lead.

The Cascades hung on until the last minute of play, when Carleton’s Valerie Hamilton beat Cascades rookie goalkeeper Danica Ferris (Chilliwack) to tie the match. “Carleton was well organized and they did a great job of limiting our time and space,” said UFV coach Rob Giesbrecht. “We started a bit slow and struggled to attack with any sort of assertiveness through most of the first half. I was quite pleased with how we responded after half-time with the quantity and quality of goal scoring opportunities.” The Cascades now

head to Quebec where they will face the University of Montreal women on Wednesday. UFV’s final match is Thursday as they take on McGill. UFV’s men’s team was also in action on Sunday, downing the Capilano University Blues 5-0 in North Vancouver. Chilliwack’s Craig Robinson led the attack with two goals with Ryan Liddiard, Trent Mayer and Sasa Plavsic adding singles. Get UFV athletic info online at www.ufv.ca/ athletics.

The radio team for the Chilliwack Chiefs has been announced, with new faces in the booth for the 2011-12 season. Randy Merkley called the games for the Chilliwack Bruins over the last three seasons. But with the Western Hockey

League team moving to Victoria, he is moving on as well. Marcus Fitzgerald is his replacement, making the move from Brooks, Alberta. Originally from Por t Coquitlam, Fitzgerald has spent the previous four winters working with the Brooks Bandits of the Alberta Junior Hockey League, proving his versatility as a morning show co-host, news and sports anchor, colour analyst and play-byplay man. He will be joined in the booth by

Cam Campbell, who takes over for Jacob Bestebroer as the colour analyst. Campbell is an ex-Chief, helping the team to a BCHL championship in 1994-95. The 37-yearold also played for the Merritt Centennials. The Sardis native has spent the last 17 years as a coach in the Chilliwack Minor Hockey system and took a turn as the head coach of the junior B Abbotsford Ice Pilots. All Chiefs home and away games will be carried on 89.5 The Hawk.

Hello, my name is Corny Woelders, I am one of the proud owners of Landmark Realty Chilliwack. I am married and have two great kids. I grew up in Chilliwack and graduated from C.S.S.S. (a long time ago) and then moved to Abbotsford where I met my wife of 23 years. I predominately worked in the poultry and dairy industry and also ran our own Poultry Farm. I became a Realtor® a number of years ago and worked out of the Landmark Abbotsford office. However, I found myself selling a lot of homes in Chilliwack for friends and family, so when a Landmark franchise came available, my partners and I knew that Chilliwack was the place to go. Today’s low interest rates, plus low prices, plus high inventory, equals the perfect buyers market. So come on in and visit our office and I will help you with all your real estate needs.

the feet of an interested party. Don’t take other’s people’s preferences personally. Everyone has his or her own taste. What you want is a sale. Moreover, the buyer might interpret your anxiety as a need to sell, which could result in lower bids and counteroffers. The purchase of a home is a formidable undertaking. Most people require a significant amount of time in a house they are seriously considering and may wish to visit again and again. The concern you may experience as a seller is just as real for the buyer. Prospective clients may need the opportunity to scrutinize and analyze your home freely. You must grant them the space to do so. This allows them to overcome their anxiety and to through the purchasing process with a happy and clear mind. People are usually more willing to speak candidly with the real estate agent than they are with the seller directly. You may be able to profit from the observations of others. After a showing, ask your Realtor for a follow-up report. Your Realtor will be able to process the feedback from prospective buyers constructively and let you know if any changes need to be made. Don’t be afraid to hear everything and be open to suggestions. Your Realtor has experience and is trained to support you in finding solutions to those possible “sore thumbs” and help potential buyers get past their stumbling blocks. While a certain invasion of privacy must be endured and some changes may need to made, remember your goal: to sell your home quickly and for the best price possible.

Congratulations! You’ve made the decision to sell your home. You’ve spent hours cleaning and preparing, discarding old clutter, re-arranging that abandoned closet, re-planting your petunia garden. You’ve put new paint on the walls, the bathroom is clean and sparkling, and a fresh bouquet of flowers sits on the dining room table. Now comes the tricky part: allowing complete strangers to walk through your home. This is the time when the services of a real estate professional are essential. Although you may be tempted to be present at your open house and Realtor showings, the best advice a real estate professional can offer is to leave, and relax. Visit a friend, grab a cup of coffee and let your real estate agent present your home to its best possible advantage. People are naturally sensitive when they are a guest in someone’s home and will be reluctant to voice their concerns if you are there. An inhibited buyer is not an active buyer! Your Realtor is familiar with your home and is ready to answer any questions an interested party may have without making them feel uncomfortable. They are professionally trained to help potential buyers ask their questions and respond to them with reassurance. In the buyer’s mind your very presence keeps the home “your home” and makes it more difficult for them to visualize the home as theirs. With a clean, airy, open residence, they can more easily imagine how it would feel to be enjoying the house as much as you do. In addition, homeowners selling their house (especially for the first time) often appear a bit nervous, and naturally so. Your innocent defense of the purple paint in the guest room makes sense to you, but may chill

✞ Obituaries

May 18, 1947 – Aug. 16, 2011 In his full 64 years of life, Robert Atkins was loved by all. His family, his friends and his co-workATKINS ers were all touched by his kind and loving ways.

Robert will be missed by his survivors: wife Diane; his children Craig (Brook) (grandson Trey) Tyra; Brad Reimer (Pam); his siblings Ron (Dana), Joanne (Steve), Margaret (Brian) and Tom, his sister-in-law Jean and his nieces and nephews Stephen, Toni-Lynne, Della-Rae, Gordon, Ryan, and Kyle. Great nephews Colton and Payton. Robert is predeceased by his first wife Cherlynn his mother Rena, his father Eric, his brother Ray and his nephew Taylor Robert was born and raised in Chilliwack and made many close and lifelong friends in those years. He was a true friend to many and never forgot any of them. He retired from Interior Roads in 2006 and traveled with Diane on their dream trip across Canada. They were Snowbirds and loved their lifestyle and (of course) he made even more friends. We all thought of Robert as a fun loving man with personal charm and dignity. He was a gentleman in the truest sense of the word. The family would like to thank Chilliwack General Hospital Staff, Robert’s doctors Dr. Bakker and Dr. Bull, Home Health nurses and the Hospice association. Your kindness and caring blessed not only Robert in his final journey, but also eased the minds and hearts of his family. Thank you so much. We don’t believe he’s gone We know his love lives on He touched so many friends That gift will never end Your memory is so very dear Robert, we just know you’re here ………In our hearts……..

PORCINA Sherry Marie

(nee Gaultier) Sherry Porcina was surrounded by family when she left us suddenly on August 18, 2011, PORCINA leaving an empty space in this world that will never be filled. Sherry was born in Winnipeg, MB to Gerald and Pauline Gaultier on September 3, 1967. She grew up under the wide, blue sky of Stoney Mountain, MB with her siblings Marc, Nicole, and Gilles, and enjoyed the love and attention of her grandparents and many aunts, uncles, and cousins. The family moved to Chilliwack, BC in 1980. Sherry graduated from CSS in 1985 along with

her high school sweetheart and future husband, Danial Porcina. They married on July 16, 1988, and after a short stint in Calgary, AB, they returned to Chilliwack to make a life together. In 1990, Sherry gave birth to their first son, Christopher Allan Porcina. That was followed by the joyous addition of Steven Gerald Porcina four years later on September 26, 1994. Sherry was a mother first, and always put her children before herself. She loved them and guided them on their way to manhood as only she could. She was always involved with school PAC and sporting events. Sherry was proud to be known as Mom of the Running Backs “28’s” within the Chilliwack Giants Football organization, to which she contributed and participated until present day. She worked data entry at Slocan for a few years before becoming the Controller, Accounts Receivable at Fred’s Custom Tackle. This is where Sherry would be known within the business community for her outstanding integrity and commitment to excellence. Sherry was a loving and encouraging wife, and the most supportive person you could ever meet. She will be sorely missed by all who knew her. The family would like to offer sincere thanks to the nurses and doctors at Lion’s Gate Hospital for their care and compassion. A ceremony to celebrate the unforgettable life of Sherry Porcina will be held at Henderson’s Funeral Home, 45901 Victoria Ave, Chilliwack, on Saturday, August 27, 2011, at 10 am. Henderson’s Funeral Homes & Crematorium Ltd. 45901 Victoria Avenue, Chilliwack, British Columbia (604) 792.1344

SMITH Kenneth Allan It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Kenneth Allan Smith on SMITH August 15, 2011 in Chilliwack, BC at the age of 84. Ken is survived by his sons, Ralph (Jill), Brian, Terry (Charlotte) and Kendall (Katherine); granddaughters, Janet, Jaclyn, Chantal and Rachel; grandsons David, Terrill and great-grandchildren, Abigail and Dayton. He was predeceased by his wife, Pearl (2009). Ken was born July 21, 1927 in Hughton, Saskatchewan. He worked in Saskatchewan with the Canadian Pacific Railway before moving, with his Mom, to the Lower Mainland area of Hammond. It was here that Ken worked within the forest industry, working in the lumber mills. It was also here that Ken met the love of his life, Pearl and were soon married and eventually moved to Abbotsford. Here, he commenced employment with Customs and Immigration. It was also here that they

raised their four boys and had an incredible marriage. It was May 12, 1983 that Ken retired from Canada Immigration. Years before, and after his retirement, Ken loved traveling with his wife, pulling their trailer all over western Canada as well as western and southwestern United States. He so loved spending those special times with his wife and enjoyed showing off all their pictures. In the later years of his life, Ken was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease. As difficult as it was dealing with the issues associated with this disease, he never let it get him down, for he still wanted to watch the local hockey games and go for walks. Funeral services will be held Wednesday, August 24, 2011 at 11:00 am at Woodlawn Mt. Cheam Funeral Home, 45865 Hocking Ave. There will be a viewing prior to the service. After the service, interment will be held at Hazelwood Cemetery, 34070 Hazelwood Ave., Abbotsford, BC. Please join the family for refreshments; 2:00 pm at the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch #4 9350 Mary Street, Chilliwack following the interment.

VOGT David Donald

Dr. David Donald Vogt passed away peacefully into the arms of his Creator and Lord on SunVOGT day, August 14, 2011 after a long journey with Alzheimers. He was 86, just days away from his birthday. He is predeceased by 4 siblings Mary, Anne, Peter and Ben. David was born in Borden, Saskatchewan on August 26, 1924. He attended Rosthern Academy for two years, then the University of Saskatchewan, and graduated from the University of Toronto with a dental degree in 1951. He practiced dentistry in Chilliwack, B.C. until his retirement 35 years later. He will be remembered for his beautiful smile and his kind and gentle nature. He cared deeply for others and had a generous spirit. Those who knew or met David could readily see his love for the Lord and others through his committed involvement in community, business, church, and missions. Some of his volunteer work included the Gideons, the M2 program at the prison, MCC, and Stillwood Camp. He also enjoyed singing in a men’s choir group as well as the Barbershop Chorus. A member of Broadway M.B. Church, he led a faithful life of service to God. David is mourned by his wife Bertha, children Judy (Ted), Cathy (Alan), David (Carol), Rob, Don, and Tom, and his grandchildren, Carrie, David, Chris, Carson and Alex. He will also be missed by his sisters Elsie and Susan, and his brother Henry, as well as his sisters-in-law Sue and Alice, and many nieces and nephews.

The family would like to thank the doctors and staff at Menno Home for their care and support during his last weeks, and we especially appreciate his loving caretaker and friend, Cherrylin, who cared for him so tenderly during his last year at home.
