Nigel Bushe, officer in charge of the RCMP E Division’s Air Services, explained that cost and convenience are why the two local RCMP helicopters will now be flying out of the Langley Regional Airport, instead of the Vancouver International Airport.

Policing

Airborne Mounties roost in Langley Langley will be the home base for RCMP helicopters in the Lower Mainland. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

When police forces around the Lower Mainland call for backup from a helicopter, it will now be responding from Langley. The RCMP announced Wednesday that they have moved their Air One helicopters to the Langley Regional Airport, and signed a long-term lease. “If you look at a map of the Lower Mainland, Langley is dead centre,” said Nigel Bushe, the officer in charge of the E Division Air Services. The decision to move from the Vancouver International Airport to Langley was made a few months ago, and the helicopters started taking off and landing here in June. Now all the personnel and equipment have been

moved into a hangar off of 56th Avenue. The two reasons for the big move were costs and operations, said Bushe. On the operations side, it was taking 10 to 15 minutes to get clearance from the tower at YVR to actually take off. That wasn’t ideal in an emergency. Sea Island, the home of YVR between Richmond and Vancouver, also wasn’t the best place to be if you wanted to get to Chilliwack. “It means better coverage,” said Roger Thomson, a civilian pilot for the program. Thomson, the first pilot hired when the Air One program started in 2006, noted that the helicopters are expected to cover an area from Hope to Whistler. “When we used to be in YVR, we were at the western end of our patrol area,” Thomson said. Now they’re about three to four minutes from northwestern Surrey, three minutes from Maple Ridge, and they don’t have to

Curtain rises on revamped City space Work on McBurney Lane is taking longer than anticipated. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

A revitalized McBurney Lane has come with its hiccups – without question. But at least part of the redeveloped park is expected to be “unofficially” unveiled during this weekend’s Arts Alive, said Teri James. The City councillor and executive director of the downtown business association admits there have been some unexpected hurdles in the refurbishment of the public space known as McBurney Lane – a strip of land stretching between Fraser Highway and Douglas Crescent and sandwiched on each side by businesses. The project, which was conceived about three years ago, is intended to provide a parklike channel – complete with walkways, seating, and stage that invites people to enjoy the downtown core. It was also intended to create a more seamless link between the shopping hub on the one-way to the bandshell in Spirit Square and the rest of Douglas Park. Brainstorming began shortly after an arson fire destroyed the kiosk at the junction of the oneway and McBurney. But work began in earnest about a year and a half ago. “Now it’s coming to fruition,” said James. The frustrations along the way, however, have included a series of unexpected delays and most recently the abuse of the new

Senior dies following 16th Avenue collision A crash has claimed a woman’s life on 16th Avenue, Langley police say. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

An 80-year-old woman was killed when her car was hit by

a dump truck on a busy South Langley road. At about 12:15 p.m. on Aug. 13, a car reportedly drove through a southbound stop sign at the intersection of 256th Street and 16th Avenue, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP. The westbound dump truck, which was towing a pup trailer,

hit the car. The driver of the dump truck apparently attempted to avoid the collision, and is extremely distraught, said Marks. Neither speed nor alcohol appear to be factors in the crash. So far, it appears the elderly driver did not obey the stop sign, said Marks. The Integrated Collision

Analyst and Reconstruction Team (ICARS) and the Commercial Vehicle Safety Enforcement (CVSE) investigators will help the Langley RCMP as they go over the accident scene and do a mechanical inspection of the truck. Witnesses who have not yet spoken to police should call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.

Education assistants, custodians, bus drivers, and tradespeople are threatening to walk off the job in elementary and secondary schools this fall because they feel the B.C. government is not taking negotiations seriously. The Canadian Union of Public Employees said government negotiators arrived at the bargaining table last week without any intention of reaching a deal. “Right now, talks have been discontinued indefinitely,” said Colin Pawson, chairman of the CUPE B.C. K-12 Presidents’ Council. “We were ready, we were at the bargaining table last week… and they didn’t have any sense at all of direction from the government.” Pawson said the union has suggested dates for further bargaining sessions into the first week of September in hopes of reaching a deal for its 27,000 members. “Failing that, we may have no choice and we may be

forced by the government to take action, and that would be the complete withdrawal of services,” he said. Peter Cameron, the government’s chief negotiator, issued a statement on Tuesday in which he described last week’s talks as “exploratory.” He said both sides will have to come to the table with suggested savings to pay for wage hikes and benefit improvements under the government’s co-operative gains mandate. “I don’t intend to elaborate further on matters that are better discussed at the bargaining table,” Cameron said. “I expect all the parties will work hard toward an agreement, and I remain hopeful that we can avoid any significant job action.” Pawson said the union did come to the table with cost-savings ideas. One idea, he said, was that government take a closer look at the computer system being developed by the Saanich school district for tracking student attendance, grades and other records. The district has said its system, which uses freely available opensource tools, would cost

a fraction of what government intends to pay for a commercial off-the-shelf product for use by districts across the province. “The government’s willing to commit $70 [million] or $80 million for this new program and we’re saying, ‘Well, hang on, that money could be used to fund the wage increase — that one fund. Why aren’t you listening to other school districts who have developed their own system?’ “That’s not what they want to do, so they’re not doing that.” Support staff have been without a wage increase for four years and are seeking a raise of two per cent a year over two years. The last agreements expired more than a year ago. “We’ve told the government we want to bargain,” Pawson said. “No one wants a strike. All of our members want to keep the kids in school, want to keep the schools clean, safe and inclusive of all children. But after a year of talking to the government and not having any bargaining going on, it’s become frustrating for our members and they want a settlement.”

Emergency response

Firefighters combine to rescue girl

A steep ravine proved a dangerous place for a 12-yearold on Monday. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A 12-year-old girl was rescued by Langley firefighters after she fell in a steep ravine in Brookswood on Monday afternoon. The accident happened in a ravine near the southwest corner of the Langley City off leash dog park, and emergency responders were alerted at about 3:40 p.m. The area is on the border of the City and Township, and while City firefighters got the call first, the incident technically took place in

the Township. Both crews worked together on the rescue, with a City crew largely doing the rope work with an assist from some Township firefighters. Township crews secured the area for an Air Ambulance helicopter to land. Firefighters clambered down the wooded slope and strapped the girl to a basket-style stretcher, then used ropes attached to cedar trees to haul her up. She was transferred to an ambulance, then taken to a field near the Langley Lawn Cemetery where an Air Ambulance landed and flew her to BC Children’s Hospital. The girl suffered a compound fracture of one leg and possibly some other injuries, but she was conscious when firefighters were getting her out of the ravine, said assistant City chief Peter Methot.

This is one of the few times local crews have had a chance to use their skills at rope rescue in some time, said Methot. A year ago, one of the City department’s crews did an exercise essentially identical to this scenario in a nearby ravine. “You could go years without ever putting your skills into practice,” said Methot. Even so, the crews train to do at least one kind of rope rescue every month, whether that involves hanging off a building or using a construction crane. While they were very happy with the way the rescue went, the City fire crews will be reviewing the ravine rescue to see what they can learn from it for the next incident, Methot said.

Victim hit with bat by home invader

Teenagers brought bats and a gun to a confrontation with an Aldergrove woman. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

One has been charged with break and enter and assault causing bodily harm, and has been released to appear in Surrey Provincial Court on Aug. 28. The second teenager has not yet been caught. A warrant has been issued for his arrest on charges of break and enter, assault causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon, disguising his face with intent to commit an offense, possession of a weapon, and uttering threats, said Marks.

RCMP arrived less than five minutes after the attack and found the 26year-old bleeding from a cut above the eye. Both she and her mother were taken to hospital. Their injuries were not life-threatening, said Marks. The cause of the home invasion seems to have been related to a “prior drug dealing relationship shared by all the parties,” said Marks. Two 17-year-olds have now been charged in the attack.

Macdonalds

Two teenagers have been charged with assault after a brutal home invasion in which a woman was hit in the head with a baseball bat. On July 29, at about 8:40 p.m., several neighbours called police to report that three young men wearing masks had kicked in the

door of a unit in the 2800 block of 273rd Street. A woman inside was then heard yelling for someone to call the police, said Langley RCMP spokesperson Holly Marks. Two of the teens were armed with bats while the third carried a handgun. The 26-year-old woman was hit in the head with a bat, while her 51-year-old mother was punched in the face and menaced with the gun, said Marks. The first victim’s fiveyear-old son was in the home at the time but was not hurt. The three teens fled in an older grey vehicle.

A desire to get together with other adults who have a love of horses (and a current Horse Council BC membership) is the only prerequisite to be a member of the Vintage Riders Equestrian Club. One need not own a horse. The club began with this philosophy back in 2003 and has grown to a membership of nearly 65 horse enthusiasts. Now at 10 years and growing, the club will host a celebration with present and past members along with their spouses on Sunday from 3 to 8 p.m. Designed as a potluck dinner, guests are asked to bring a dish to share at the 5 p.m. dinner, along with a plate, cup, utensils, beverage, and chair. There will also be a number of fun activities throughout the afternoon and evening including croquet, bocce, and many opportunities for socializing. While this is a special event, regular club meetings are the third Tuesday of each month from 7 to 9 p.m. and focus on a variety of horse and rider topics. Other riding and social events are scheduled throughout the year. The Vintage Riders Equestrian Club is focused on the love of horses in a safe, enjoyable environment that is non-judgemental and supportive. To find out more about the 10th anniversary event or other club activities, email vintageriders@shaw.ca or visit the website at www.vintageequestrian.ca.

Best education not just a BA

Everyone knows education is expensive, but an uneducated population is not a productive one. Students go back to school in a few weeks and those heading off to post-secondary carry with them the stress of knowing one day – soon – they will graduate and will need to find a job to pay off those students loans they are accumulating. The provincial government is spending $1.9 billion on educating students in its 25 post-secondary institutions this year – and students and their parents will kick in a whole bunch more. Many parents hope their Email with kids will end up at university studying in prestigious areas like medicine, law, dentistry, and business. But these days, even doctors are graduating from university and not finding jobs (but apparently there are a lot of jobs in gerontology). Skilled trades and technology are expected to be the fastest growing areas of employment. While we like to encourage our children to pursue their dreams and passions, we also have to keep them grounded and ready to do work that will earn them a living and let them be independent. Unromantic as it may sound, we should encourage our youth to attain skills that are marketable – something that has value for society and somebody will pay money for. Students should also understand that if they do a general four-year degree – while it will broaden one’s mind – the job prospects to start might be making venti cappuccinos or the graveyard shift at Home Depot. Their friends who became millwrights, welders, electricians, or plumbers are more likely to secure gainful employment in the long run – though they too will have to retrain to keep their skills up to date. Working in the service sector is nothing to be ashamed of, but detailed knowledge from the History 455 course in the reasons by the First World War broke out won’t help too much – though it will make for great conversation. – M.R.

Record holder lauds alternate fuels Dear Editor,

Even though I grew up in Windsor, the area’s nickname, the “Motor City,” seems odd recently. But the “Engine City” or “Car City” just doesn’t have the right ring to it, either, because most of the motors we use in cars are in our windows, wipers, heaters, air conditioners, power seats, or starters. The misnomer compounds exponentially when pondering the fact that the first autos were electric,

and had no internal combustion engine at all. But cleaner air is in the wind, because everything old is new again. Electric cars are coming on stronger than ever, now, no matter what the naysayers or oil industry puppets would have us believe. Take the Alberta Tar Sands for instance: the largest environmental catastrophe on earth. About the best thing about those toxic swirling cesspools is that 100 per cent of the

Phone numbers left out Dear Editor,

As a Langley resident, I had the latest phone book delivered to my front door. I admired the colt and mare depicted on the cover, and then looked to see if our number was listed. It was not. I phoned the people who had published what they proclaim to be the “Langley Telephone Directory,” only to be told we were not listed because we hadn’t a Telus phone installed. I asked how they could claim to be the Langley phone directory, when all Shaw numbers had been ignored. The reply I got was the curt reply that Shaw should publish a directory listing its phone numbers. Save paper? Extra expense! Yes. And what right has Telus to claim its book listing only its clients is a Langley telephone directory… because it isn’t!

wildlife that land in the tailing ponds never made it out. Who would want to eat one that lived anyway? The oil industry standard for a successful clean-up is only 15 per cent. What about the 85% that got away? Just ask the fisherman in the Gulf about that, or the scientists who recently tested core samples taken from the Athabaska River, which through Fort MacMurray. Of course, old habits die hard. Our long-term cozy ties with the oil industry and the local perception that all EV riders are a bunch of toothless, suspended, scofflaws doesn’t help. But I still have all my teeth, even after surviving a harrowing adventure from Vancouver to Halifax on e-bike, annihilating two world records in the process. And thanks to the dozens of Windsor sponsors, we did it all on solar-charged batteries, too, just to prove limits are not always finite.

Volunteers sought for International Fest The Langley International Festival is holding training. by Ronda Payne

news@langleyadvance.com

Upwards of 300 volunteers are needed to make the 13th annual two-day Langley International Festival successful. All past and new volunteers will need to attend a two-hour training session in Langley Room 1 at Willoughby Community Centre (inside the Langley Events Centre) from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. on either Aug. 19 or 22. According to Bert Chen, communications and media director with the festival, the training will prepare volunteers for their duties at the Aug. 24 and 25 event. “Basically [the sessions will be] an introduction to the event, responsibilities and signing up for whichever specific duty they’re taking on,” Chen said. The duties available are varied. “Anything from garbage pick up to security to helping other volunteers sign in,” commented Chen.

Langley Advance files

Volunteers at the Langley International Festival will have plenty of opportunities to take in the diverse entertainment. Volunteers can offer their time on either day, or both days of the event for shifts falling between 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. “They’ll get a free lunch, T-shirt and will be entered to win a raffle for a TV,” said Chen. The Langley International Festival is a non-profit community event held at Willoughby Community Park. Organizers expect more than 15,000 attendees this year.

For more information about volunteer opportunities with the festival, contact Bert Chen at 778-9969910 or bert@bertchen.ca.

Alzheimers Society

Currently, dementia affects an estimated one in 11 B.C. residents over age 65. According to the Alzheimer Society of B.C., that number is projected to double over the next generation. Those afflicted with Alzheimer’s and other

forms of dementia aren’t the only ones dealing with it. The disease ripples out to family, friends, and most of all, to caregivers. The Alzheimer Society of B.C. is looking for help to support those both with the condition and those faced with the repercussions. Opportunities are available to help the organization with their resource centre as well as in the role of group facilitator. Those with administra-

tive experience including customer service, computer and office equipment skills would be ideal for the three-hour-a-week role at the resource centre. “You’ll know you have been helping people at a significant moment in their lives,” said Rose Puszka, the Society’s support and education coordinator for Langley. Group facilitators provide a forum for caregivers to discuss their situations. “This is their lifeline,” said Puszka of the caregiver group attendees. “They can meet with people with similar issues who are in a unique position to offer support to others on the same journey. The group is a place that they can talk openly, share information, and give each other mutual support.” To be eligible for the group facilitator role, individuals need excellent listening skills, a willingness to learn, and a one-year commitment. For more information about the opportunities with the local group of the Alzheimer Society of B.C., contact Puszka at 604-5335277 or rpuszka@alzheimerbc.org.

Suspect arrested

A suspect has been charged in a spree or robberies. Police have charged a man with nine robberies over six days in three Lower Mainland communities. Rupinder Jit Sooch, a 29-year-old Surrey resident, allegedly held up restaurants and sandwich shops in Langley, Surrey, and Delta between Jan. 31 and Feb. 5 this year. In all the robberies, the thief was armed with a knife and would disguise his appearance with a hooded sweatshirt and cloth over the lower half of his face. He always fled in a four-door silver vehicle. No one was hurt. The six-month investigation involved forensic evidence, video surveillance evidence, and help from the public, according to the Surrey RCMP. Surrey Mounties arrested Sooch and he has now been charged with nine counts of robbery and seven of disguise with intent to commit a crime. Sooch is being held in custody until his next court appearance on Aug. 22. “The collaboration with our partner police agencies and the assistance from members of the public were instrumental in helping us remove this individual from our streets,” said Surrey RCMP Sgt. Drew Grainger. In the event of a robbery, police recommend that merchants remain calm, cooperate with the robber’s demands, and assume he or she is armed. Try to recall what the robber looks like, any vehicle they may use, and which direction they head when they leave. Call the police as soon as the robber is gone and it is safe to do so.

Once an artist, always an artist

See Cherlandra Estrada’s unique, eclectic paintings and learn about her passion for the arts Saturday. by Ronda Payne

news@langleyadvance.com

The journey to artist began like that of so many others: as a child who doodled. Langley resident Cherlandra Estrada was an artist in the making, but when she began, she wasn’t sure how to get to the end result. “Literally [I’ve been creating art] since I was a child,” Estrada said. “I’ve always doodled, View with created, coordinated. It’s just always been my thing. When I was young, there wasn’t a lot of help or assistance for the arts in terms of finding your way.” Perhaps that’s what leads her to talk to others about how art and creativity can become viable professions. She often gives free lessons to youth while explaining careers in the arts. “Hopefully that’s something I can help others do. Because it’s hard, especially with arts funding being cut,” she noted. “There are programs for shop and programs for hairdressing, but when it comes to the arts, there are art classes,

It has value, like before that, then I quickly found out actual monetary value, but it’s never preyou don’t have to decide.,” she said. “It sented that way to kids.” [fine arts] just lends itself immediately to Explaining this, as well as talking about graphic design, so many times I get hired her own painting, is part of what drives to do an illustration that needs to put it Estrada to be part of Arts Alive.

International accolades

Prized local piper impresses judges in Glasgow

In the lead up to the World Pipe Band Championships, Jack Lee stands as one of the world’s best pipers. by Ronda Payne

news@langleyadvance.com

Bagpipe competitions are quite a competitive undertaking, but you don’t need to tell that to Jack Lee. A resident on the Langley/ Surrey border, Lee has been piping for most of his life and has claimed every major soloist piping award at least once. Now, with a win at the

Masters Invitational Solo Piping contest in Glasgow, Scotland Monday, Lee is able to advance to the Glenfiddich Solo Championship in Scotland in October. He was the first North American piper to win the Glenfiddich when he competed in 2003. View Having kicked the week off with the win, Lee turns to this weekend’s competition, the World Pipe Band Championships. The SFU Pipe Band, which Lee is a co-founder of, is looking to take its seventh world championship title in the event which moved to a two-day format this year.

Those back at home feel Lee’s win is going to give the band positive momentum. “His win was a nice start to the week for them,” said Marianne Meadahl, assistant director for public affairs at SFU. While the band is with currently in Sterling, Scotland, about an hour out of Glasgow, Meadahl noted the distance isn’t a concern. “It gives them a good chance to hunker down and practise,” she stated. Among the more than 40 members of the SFU Pipe Band, four include Lee’s three sons, and his brother Terry who coleads the band with lead drum-

Pipe Band and, “have been at the head of it for more than 30 years,” Meadahl said. With his reputation for being one of the world’s best pipers confirmed yet again, Lee sets his sights to the upcoming band competition. The entire week of Piping Live in Glasgow is dedicated to Scottish culture and of course to pipe bands. Both Jack and Terry Lee received honorary degrees from SFU in June. As well, Jack is featured in the newly launched book Our Journey, about piping band champions in which nearly a dozen SFU Pipe Band members are honoured.

Arts in brief

New duo hits Gabby’s next nly a few months into the launch of a new country band called Me & Mae, they’re in Shawn Meehan’s hometown performing next week. The 37-year-old veteran musician from Walnut Grove combined forces with vocalist Jacky Mae after hearing her perform at a festival last year. And now, after fronting many different bands through the years, as well as writing and doing studio work, and even teaching guitar to the likes of pop sensation Carly-Rae Jepsen, Meehan has partnered with Mae and released what he believes will be a hit single called Love Me Leave Me Lonely. It doesn’t hurt, he said, that this song was co-written with Jepsen, who’s gone on since those days as his pupil to enjoy recognition on the global music scene. Me & Mae (www.meandmae.com) performed at Agrifair in Abbotsford at the beginning of the month, and after a recent show in Cowichan Valley, the next gig is in Meehan’s stomping ground – literally. They’ll be performing at Gabby’s Country Cabaret next Friday, Aug. 23. They’re in Chilliwack the following night, then in Vancouver for Aug. 25 to perform at The Roxy. Tickets for the Gabby’s show are $12 and available at the cabaret at 203rd Street and Fraser Highway, or from www. ticketweb.ca. The doors open at 7 p.m. with the show at 7:30 p.m.

ante Arias won the hearts of many spectators at the Langley Has Talent competition this spring. Now, the nine-year-old Aldergrove dancer is bound for Poland to compete this winter. Dante is a Grade 5 Shortreed Elementary student who has been studying at Studio One Dance Centre for almost three years. “We are trying to raise some sponsorship money, as dance is not considered a sport and has no government funding,” explained his mother Crystal. “He is extremely talented, darling, and determined,” said his proud mother. “What is not debatable is the fact that Dante puts dance ahead of everything. He is in the studio more than 20 hours a week and practises at home every chance he gets.” He was invited to be one of 44 competing for the Canadian National Dance Team at the world dance championships in Europe in December. “His talent isn’t in question, but in order to make his dream a reality, he’ll need some financial assistance,” said Mom. Those interested in helping can contact dance team director Bonnie Dyer at 705-689-1844.

till on the music front, a Langley rock band known as the Carpetriders are performing at a hometown venue this weekend. The four-piece self-proclaimed grungy psychedelic classic rock band will be performing in Aldergrove Saturday. Carpetriders have been around since 2008, admittedly with few people hearing them. When they realized they were ready, Dwayne Morgan (guitar, keys, and vocals), Adam McMorris (bass, percussion, and vocals), James Tungate (guitar and vocals) and Eddie Weber (drums and vocals) headed for the studio. Now, the group is preparing to release its first EP next month, but they’re giving locals a taste of what to come at Azul Restaurant, 27010 Fraser Hwy., starting at 10 p.m. Admission is $10. While they are in the final stages of mixing and mastering the independent EP, Busey’s Helmet, can be streamed at www.carpetriders.bandcamp.com.

Arts Alive!

A17

Art is showcased annually in a festive celebration of the arts in Downtown Langley City. This year, free ‘Goody Bags’ will be handed out to the first 500 people at Art’s Alive!

Saturday, August 17… 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Arts Alive

Single mom and artist strives to empower women

A Langley painter and art ambassador is seeing success in the cards. by Erin Brocklehurst Special to the Langley Advance

A

n exciting couple of months are in store for a Langley artist who will be participating in this weekend’s Arts Alive, has launched a new website, and is featured in a series of art cards – all while embracing a unique honour. Dione Dolan has been named the 2013 Artist Impact Ambassador by The Women Worldwide Initiative (TWWI) as a part of its global movement for gender equality. TWWI connects, inspires, and educates women and girls through mentorship programs, social change projects, and awareness campaigns to empower them to be

leaders in their communities. In celebration of women’s history month, TWWI held a poster design contest this past spring. Dolan’s winning entry is a black-and-white painting titled, I Survive. Void of colour to represent women of all ethnic origins, it depicts the undefeated determination that has fueled the women’s movement and is the common thread between the women of history and women of today, the artist explained. “I am a working single mom of two, with an incredible gratitude for the fact that I live in Canada, a country where I can live as such with empowerment and social support in my circumstances,” Dolan said. “I am raising a daughter and see this as an opportunity to instill a sense of pride in our historic origins as well as to provide role models. It is an opportunity to provide role models for

recently launched website at dionedolan.artweb.com and on Facebook at DioneArt. Dolan will also be featured this weekend at Arts Alive, which runs 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Aug. 17, along the one-way strip of Fraser Highway in downtown Langley City. During the 20th annual arts celebration, Dolan will hold a silent

Langley artist Dione Dolan all Canadian women, young and young at heart.” I Survive, and more of Dione’s work – much of which is inspired by wildlife and nature – can be seen on her

auction for one of her original watercolours. It is one of the original images that have been selected by Island Art (www.islandart.com) to be published as art cards. An active member of the Federation of Canadian Artists, Dolan’s piece, entitled Eleven, is featured in the Surrey arts council’s annual juried exhibition at the Surrey Art Gallery until the end of August. As well, this month, Dolan has a painting featured on Artbomb (www.artbombdaily.com) – a daily online art auction featuring works from artists across Canada. “I am thrilled about the opportunities that have come up for me,” Dolan said. “As an artist, it is always rewarding to be able to share your work with others and hopefully make an impact. Painting is my passion and I’m so glad for the chance to share my love for our natural world.”

atelyn Anderson is an Arts Alive veteran and she’s only 20 years old. She’s had her unique jewelry at several of the previous summer arts gatherings in downtown Langley City and plans to be there again this year. “I really like Arts Alive as

a market because it’s kind of exciting. It’s really fun,” the Langley woman said. “I like seeing the community… coming together.” Anderson said she enjoys Arts Alive for its mix of visual arts and performing arts. Her own artistic journey began about seven years ago. “My mom was given a gorgeous ring from my Dad,” she explained. It was a piece of unique old cutlery fashioned into jewelry and purchased at a market in England. Anderson had been taking metal work in school

with cutlery. Since then she’s been fashioning distinctive pieces

from old sterling knives, forks and spoons. “That first ring my brother still wears,” she noted. Now all her family members are tasked with keeping an eye out for suitable cutlery when they are in secondhand and antique shops. She takes the cutlery and creates one of a kind creations that she finds appeal to all ages, seniors for the nostalgia they evoke right down to kids who like the vintage elements coupled with Anderson’s take on wearable art. She will have her metal pieces at Arts Alive and will

be unveiling her newest creative venture (although there won’t be pieces for sale). She’s using pieces of distinstive china tea cups in her new jewelry line that will be available for sale by Christmas. Again she’s using items that many people might toss because they are broken. “You don’t want to throw them away because they’re so beautiful,” she said. Right now she’s busy prepping for Arts Alive after which she’ll continue producing pieces for the busy Christmas season.

Children’s area grows

Expansion of the kids zone at Arts Alive prompts a move to Salt Lane.

A

huge component of the free arts festival in downtown Langley each year is always geared at the younger, aspiring artists among us. And at this weekend’s event, there will be even more for the young and young at heart to enjoy, said organizer Teri James. Dubbed the Children’s Fun Park, the Langley Advance-sponsored kids area will once again offer a myriad of activities such as facepainting, chalk art, and craft-making. As well, Westminster Savings will be back at Arts Alive this year, partnering with Arts Umbrella to offer children’s crafts. Plus stunt magician Wes Barker will be roaming throughout the day, along with a team of stilt-walkers. Parents love to come and enjoy all the art and music at Arts Alive, it’s just a natural, James said, the event also incorporate a kids area with arts-related stuff for the youngsters. But to facilitate the growing demand, and all the fun kids activities, James said a decision was made this year to move the kids activities back into Salt Lane.

Musicians mix it up An eclectic compilation of music will be presented on the two stages of Arts Alive this Saturday.

T

he first 500 people to visit the Arts Alive information tent after 10 a.m. (no early birds) on Saturday will walk away with an “unbelievable” bonus – a goodie bag jammed full of gifts from local merchants. Each of the colourful satchels are packed with about $300 worth of items and discounts, said Rachelle Anderson, executive assistant for the Downtown Langley Business Association. “We couldn’t be more excited about the 500 goodie bags filled with amazing items, samples, discounts, and coupons from our downtown businesses,” said Anderson. “The invitiation to participate first went out to the businesses in June, and they were

invited to add something special from their store.” In an unprecedented response, 55 businesses participated. “We’ve been assembling them for the last two weeks, you’d be surprised at how long it takes to stuff 500 bags” Anderson said, noting there’s everything from cookie cutters and lip balm, to artists chalk, candy, glass cleaners, hair products, pens, post-it notes, pins, playing cards, music CDs, and specialty teas in the bags. The giveaway is just one fun component of the 20th annual Arts Alive festival, which runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday in downtown Langley City. This free, family event features live musical performances, artists and artisans showcasing a myriad of mediums, live demonstrations, a

children’s venue, and special performance surprises throughout the day, Anderson explained. With more than 200 visual and performing artists, now involved, this festival has become a signature art event in the Lower Mainland, said event organizer Teri James. “Our business community is waiting to greet you with a warm welcome, and we have an amazing variety of artists, artisans, and crafters participating this year,” James added. “To celebrate 20 years of success, we have new surprises, and a whole lot of fun planned – so bring your friends and family and prepare to have an amazing day.” Same as every year, they’re expecting large crowds – weather permitting.

McBurney a drawing card …continued from A3 the south end is still a virtual gravel pit and, James said, she’s unsure when that will be finished. The delays, she said, are hardest felt by the merchants located along the lane. They’ve been “incredibly” understanding, and realize the future potential, James said, but the delays have hurt. Along with all the delays, the City has also faced increased costs. All in, including outdoor furnishings and garbage receptacles, she said the new park will cost $850,000. One silver lining, James said Wednesday, is that this pro-

ject is on budget. James sees this weekend’s festivities as an opportunity to test drive at least part of the park. She sees the eventual completion of the McBurney Lane redevelopment as great news for Arts Alive. A few years ago, the Arts Alive organizers tried to expand the festival into Douglas Park. But because there was no obvious and convenient link between the one-way and the park, most festival goers didn’t visit the park. “This will open it right up… I love it. I’m very anxious to have it done,” said James.

“I think it’s going to be stunning when it’s finished,” she said, noting it’s the City’s hope to host a series of small events – such as concerts and fashion shows – on McBurney Lane that would start in 2014. “We’ve got our thinking caps on… We’ve never had a nice space like this before,” James added. “It’s going to create a new sense of place in the downtown, that will be used by young and old alike,” she added. She noted that the downtown business owners share her excitement to see at least part of it ready for this weekend’s festivities.

Attack bugs early

drain freely or if it sits in water for long periods (inside a cache pot, perhaps). But its more likely your tree is sickening because a horde of mealy bugs are sucking its sap. Some gardeners begin by blasting hose water over the infested plant to help remove the mealy bugs. It’s definitely not a cure, but can remove some things you might otherwise have to pick off. The remaining adults can be killed by pressing them with a cotton swab which has been dipped in alcohol. This is a tedious, boring and lengthy but important task. The first vulnerable stage is the egg masses in the leaf axils. These look like tiny puffs of cotton wool. For every one of those you pick off, you are removing 300 to 600 embryo mealy bugs. Eggs hatch into crawlers – the second vulnerable stage. These are tiny, greenish yellow insects which crawl over the plant for about 10 days. Insecticidal soap spray kills them on contact but it’s impossible to get each one. That’s why you should repeat the spraying twice a week for at least four weeks or longer.

Dear Anne,

I have a Japanese maple tree in a container on my porch. It has green leaves that turn a lovely cream and pink colour from midsummer until its leaves fall. But it has mealy bugs on it. An insecticide powder hasn’t corrected the problem. I started to pick the bugs off the tree, but there are so many now I don’t know what to do. I am an inexperienced gardener and I think I have over-watered the tree as well. Can you help me?

Heather Stacey, Port Moody

It is possible to eradicate mealy bugs, but on a large, intricate tree this will take much hard work and a great deal of time. An onslaught with insecticide will only help when the mealy bugs are in the ‘crawler’ stage. At other times, their fluffy white coating protects them. You’d find your tree much more manageable if you could prune it back. For this it might be best to seek the help of an experienced gardener, because shape and twig structure is an important part of the tree’s beauty. The rundown look of your maple could be overwatering. This can happen if its container doesn’t

The male creates its own white case and within it changes into a tiny fly which mates with the female. She can crawl a little, forms her own white case and settles down to lay eggs. It’s important to check all your other container plants. Mealy bugs can spread easily at the crawler stage and the adult male can fly over to the females and begin the infestation cycle on another plant.

Country music stars Chad Brownlee and Dallas Smith, both of Langley, toured together last fall, are both up for the CCMA’s male vocalist of the year, and are organizing a charity golf tournament in their hometown next week.

Chad Brownlee and Dallas Smith are vying for CCMA vocalist of the year awards while also organizing a charity golf tourney in their hometown of Langley Aug. 27.

teeing up for busy fall

by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

Two Canadian country music stars, who happen to call Willoughby home, are contenders in a national industry competition to crown the best male vocalist for 2013. In the running are Chad Brownlee and Dallas Smith, but these two are anything but arch rivals outside of this arena. In fact, one might describe them as buds. These singers, songwriters, and guitar players have toured together and are now organizing a charity golf tourney in their hometown later this month. Brownlee and Smith are both up for the Canadian Country Music Association’s male vocalist of the year award, with Smith also nominated for single and album of the year. These two men toured together for five weeks last fall in what became known as the Boys of Fall Tour, so when it came to naming their new golf tournament – which will raise money for the JRfm Basics for Babies program – Smith and Brownlee both agreed it was an “nobrainer” to continue with the Boys of Fall name. “Dallas and I really got to know each other [on last year’s tour], and that’s where the idea spawned from. People know us together as the Boys of Fall, so we thought we would stick to that,” Brownlee told the Langley Advance. Not only will both men be swinging a club on The Redwoods golf course at the Aug. 27 event, they will also be performing at the after party.

“Dallas and I wanted to do with Smith again on future Hear something in our music endeavours, Brownlee them community and said he looks forsing celebrate country ward to such a propmusic in our homeosition. town…” Brownlee “That was the first said, noting he hopes to time Dallas and I perhave a lot of fun and raise formed together and I sure “as much money as poshope it’s not the last.

Brownlee said.

“The album title described how this experience has gone for me,” Smith elaborated. “I kind of closed my eyes and made that leap of faith.” His first foray into country music has obviously paid off, but how much is yet to be seen. Both Smith and Brownlee will have to wait until September to learn how they do at the CCMAs. “It helps me feel accepted in this genre,” Smith told the Langley Advance. He was up for song of the year and the rising star awards at the CCMAs last year. “It’s just an honour to be recognized,” Smith said, noting he hopes to release his next album early next year. “At the end of the day, it’s the nomination that counts. It’s nice to win, but just the opportunity to have your name listed in these categories is a big deal.” Brownlee concurs. “It’s quite surreal to see my name next to that nomination for the second year in a row,” Brownlee told the Langley Advance. “It still feels like yesterday I was tying up my skates to hit the ice chasing a different dream,” said the pro-hockey-playerturned-country-singer. “I’m extremely fortunate to be at this point in my career in such a short time. Especially along side such talented artists,” added the 29-year-old Brownlee. Both Langley men are set to be at the awards event in Edmonton on Sept. 8, with Smith asked to perform as well. In the meantime, they’re apparently still looking a few more people to join them on the golf course on Tuesday, Aug. 27. The Boys of Fall Charity Golf Tournament will be at The Redwoods Golf Course, with a shotgun start at 1 p.m. A brief tailgate party and registration starting at 11:30 a.m., and a reception and live performances will follow. Entry fees are $150 per person, with all proceeds to the Basics for Babies program. Dinner-only tickets are also available at $50 each. To register, people can visit: https://www.redwoods-golf.com

Reduction sauces are thickened naturally by evaporation. Creating steam is the action of transforming water into vapour. When a sauce is simmering in a pan, and steam is rising from the pan, it is accurate to assume then, that the sauce is concentrating. Water alone has no fla-

vour, so as it evaporates from the recipe, residual flavours left in the pan are intensified. This affects taste and texture. With the evaporation of water content the sauce also becomes less pliable or more accurately stated, syrupy. An example of this technique would be a wine

reduction sauce served with pan-seared steaks. Sear the steaks in a heavybottomed stainless steel pan until the desired doneness is achieved. Remove the steaks from the pan and keep warm while the sauce is prepared. Add one half cup or more of full bodied red wine to deglaze the pan

(removing the browned bits of flavour left on the pan from searing the steaks) with the help of a wooden spoon. Add some beef broth and a bit of sugar (to counteract acidity in the wine), and boil over medium to medium-high heat (stirring constantly). Add a bit of whipping

This equipment has predetermined routes or an assigned area to follow. If the equipment is pulled away to do a specific request, it only lengthens the time it takes to fully complete all the rural boulevards and ditches. If you have a request for mowing or brushwhacking, we ask that you be patient as we try to fit the work schedule in as efficiently as possible. The Township, along with Provincial and Federal agencies, have classified open channel water systems into three categories: Class A ditches are fish bearing and Class B ditches are fish habitat. Both of these categories require formal approval before any work can be completed. Class C ditches are deemed to have no fish or fish habitat issues whatsoever and only require notification for work to take place. How or when a ditch is cleaned depends on its classification.

Alexander’s great jump nets national title Langley is home to a Canadian midget-aged long jump champion.

Alexander Savage shows the gold medal he won in long jump at the 2013 Legion Canadian youth track and field championships, held last weekend at McLeod Athletic Park.

by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

As the kids today might say: this dude’s got some serious hops. Willoughby resident Alexander Savage, all 5’7’ of him, flew to a gold medal in the midget boys long jump event during last weekend’s 2013 Legion Canadian youth track and field championships at McLeod Athletic Park. Using the two natural springs he has for legs, the 15-year-old Walnut Grove Secondary School student is now officially the top U16 boys long jumper in Canada. His winning effort: a devilishly good six metres, 66 inches. “You couldn’t make that up,” his dad “Memphis” Mike Savage said. His jump outdistanced silver medalist Ivan Nyemeck from Quebec (6.57m) and bronze medal winner Thomas Walser from Manitoba (5.99m). “I feel I performed pretty good,” the younger Savage said. “I was just going in there to do my best.” Alexander credits his dad for helping him attain national champion status. Mike used to exercise his son’s legs when Alexander was an infant. That early childhood training paid off. “It sort of helped,” Alexander said. “I guess it made a big difference, since I won.”

Troy Landreville/Langley Advance

Alexander qualified for nationals as an unattached athlete, meaning his parents had to pay for his entry into a prestigious track meet that attracted 1,000 athletes from across Canada and ran Friday to Sunday (Aug. 9-11) at MAP. “It was worth every penny,” his extremely proud dad said. The BC/Yukon branch of the Royal Canadian Legion provides funding support to athletes who qualify for the

national Legion meet, Mike noted. Alexander thought he secured a spot for Team BC from the national qualifying meet in Kamloops in July, but was disappointed to see he lost the spot due to a technicality. “I won first to qualify but they counted my jump as illegal, yet still all my secondary jumps were… better than the guy who took my spot for the Legion team,” he said.

A basketball player and skateboarder, Alexander has turned out to be a quick study in track and field. He only took up long jump in a serious fashion two-and-a-half months ago, but he’s always been a skilled jumper. His vertical leap is more than four feet. “I’ve always been good at jumping,” he said. “Everybody has compliments about how high I jump.” Next summer, Alexander is looking to defend his long jump title at MAP, which once again hosts the Legion national meet in 2014. Alexander says he’s taking long jump “a lot more seriously” now, than ever before. He trains with Surrey’s South Fraser Track and Field Club under the guidance of head coach Robert Esmie, who won Olympic gold for Canada in the 4 x 100m relay at the 1996 Games in Atlanta. He also improved his jumping ability with a lot of help from Rusty Pierce, head coach of Flip City Gymnastics in Walnut Grove. While Alexander is not a gymnast, Pierce was more than happy to help the youngster sharpen his technique by using a springboard as a tool, two-tothree hours each week for the past three weeks. “Rusty was very important. He deserves accolades,” Mike said. “He helped us work on straightening his [Alexander’s] alignment when he jumped in the air. He [Pierce] said a kid trying to win a nationals is worth gold.”

Dodgers hosting Western Canada championships The host team has something to prove at the Western Canada bantam AAA baseball championships, being held at Aldergrove Athletic Park this weekend.

The Langley/Aldergrove Dodgers are a ball team with a championship pedigree that hasn’t quite lived up to expectations from the start of their season. The local all-stars hope to change that this weekend when they host the Western Canada bantam AAA baseball champion-

ships on the beautifully manicured grounds of Aldergrove Athletic Park. The Dodgers’ roster is filled with players who have garnered significant titles in the not-toodistant past. Seven of the team’s 12 members were part of the Langley Baseball 11/12 squad that won the B.C. and Canadian Little League titles in 2011 and went on to represent the nation at the famed Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa. These same players also took part in the historic Pearl of Africa fund-and-awareness event in Uganda. They include Cole Cantelon, Yi An Pan, Yi Fan Pan, Ian Burns, Riley Ens, Nick Atkinson, and Ken Dubois. They are joined by their Dodgers teammates Jake

Polancic, Jarrod Manick, Jaron Jeske, Owen Napieralski, and Laith Sweiss. The team’s general manager is Dean Cantelon, who managed that Canadian champion squad. With the kind of potential firepower the Dodgers possess, they haven’t been able to reach their potential this season. At least not yet. The Dodgers qualified for the Western Canada tournament as the host team. Most recently, they placed fifth out of 10 teams at a very tough B.C. provincial tournament in Kamloops. “The provincials is the hardest tournament to win,” Dodgers head coach Darren Rock said. This weekend’s event includes eight teams from B.C., Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Manitoba.

Still unbeaten Rams eke past Raiders Langley withstood a late charge from Nanaimo to stretch their season-long win streak to three games. by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

Saturday at Nanaimo’s Caledonia Park, the host Vancouver Island Raiders gave the Langley Rams their first real test of the B.C. Football Conference season. The junior Rams, who going into the game had outscored their first two opponents by a combined 120-10 count, managed to achieve a passing grade. In a rematch of the 2012 BCFC final, the visitors built a 15-6 halftime lead and stretched that advantage to 22-6 heading into the final quarter before holding on to clip the Raiders 36-28. The win improved the Rams’ record to a perfect 3-0 while the Raiders fell to 1-2. Rams head coach Ted Kirby knew the Nanaimo squad would present a stern challenge. “I fully expected a tough game.” he said. “I can’t stress how well coached they are, and they have some serious athletes on their team. Their defensive coordinator is a super aggressive guy. We knew we’d be facing a tough defence.” Kirby said games like last Saturday’s is only going to make the Rams better in the future. “It’s great for our team,” he said. “It’s great to get into a slugfest. It will really help our team out. We see these guys at

yard gain. For the Raiders, quarterbacks Ybarra and Jaeden Marwick combined for 414 yards passing between them. Tomusiak (11 receptions, 225 yards) and Schrot (four catches, 130 yards) had monster games receiving-wise for the home team. Langley kicker Steve Thomas had a strong game booting the ball. A highlight was his 62-yard punt that pinned the Raiders on their own one-yard line in the second quarter. However, on the very next play, Schrot turned a short pass into a 105-yard gain that took the ball to the Rams’ one-yard line. An impressive defensive stand by the Rams forced the Raiders to settle for a field goal. Kirby said the Raiders are much better than their sub .500 record indicates and credited Tomusiak for making things difficult for the visiting defence. “Anytime you face a receiver like Tomusiak, who was with the [BC] Lions all of main camp… he’s a phenomenal athlete. We made adjustments to stop him but big plays happen in football.” Next up for the Rams are the 0-3 Westshore Rebels, who were edged 37-26 by a tough Okanagan Sun team Saturday. During their last meeting, the Rams crushed the Rebels 69-10. Kirby expects a tougher game this Saturday when the teams meet in at Westhills Stadium in Langford. “We’re ready for a fight with these guys,” he said. “The last game, we kind of put a stomping on them and they are going to want payback.”

Paddlers good as gold in Nanaimo Fort Langley’s Abreast with Fortitude breast cancer dragon boat team brought home its third gold medal this season at the Nanaimo Dragonboat Festival on July 7. All of the team members had breast cancer and their success on the water this year proves their mandate, “that there is life after a diagnosis of breast cancer.” The team is one of six crews representing the world’s first breast cancer dragon boat team, Abreast In A Boat (www. abreastinaboat.com). Abreast with Fortitude continues to train in preparation for its first Canadian national competition Aug. 23 at Elk Lake in Victoria. The local crew’s level of success there will determine if it qualifies for the world competition near Ravenna, Italy.

The Vancouver Mounties are the B.C. reps after placing second at the provincial tournament. The Mounties lost 4-3 to the Cloverdale Spurs in the championship game. With the victory the Spurs will represent B.C. at the U15 national championships, taking place Aug 22-26 in Vaughan, Ontario. Closer to home, the Dodgers, who have played more than 60 games this spring and summer, are looking to cap their season with a tournament victory. “A lot of times with this age group, it’s tough because we still make a lot of mental errors,” Rock said. “I’m very excited that we kept getting better.” Expectation-wise, first and foremost, Rock said, is to win the Western Canada championship. Based on past experience the Dodgers should be able to handle the pressure that lies ahead of them over the three days, starting with their first game versus Saskatchewan #1 Friday at 9 a.m. “That’s a huge advantage on our part,” Dean Cantelon said. “We’ve been in these situations before. It [pressure] is not going to affect the players at all.” From a player’s perspective Polancic, the Dodgers’ first baseman, expects the competition to be “very good.” “I feel we can finish in the top three,” he said. “But we have to play fundamentally sound baseball.” Dean Cantelon said the positive thing is the team has “showed up three quarters of the way through the season.”
