Police crack down on distractions Police setting up a distracted driving sting found four texters in the first couple of minutes. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Distracted drivers were being hauled off the roads of Langley and given tickets on Tuesday as part of a month-long crackdown. As part of the annual distracted driving campaign, Langley RCMP officers were watching for drivers talking or texting on their cellphones along stretches of Fraser Highway near 200th Street and Highway 10. After less than two hours, officers had given out 11 tickets, 10 of them for texting while driving and one for a cyclist not wearing a helmet. Police were giving drivers every opportunity to wise up and avoid a ticket, said Const. Craig Van Herk. Volunteers from the Community Police Offices were standing on the sides of the streets, wearing bright orange vests, and carrying signs about not using cellphones while driving. The crews are usually part of Speed Watch, but are dubbed Cell Watch for this project, Van Herk said. “If they ignore that, what they won’t see is the officer in plainclothes standing on the sidewalk,” said Van Herk. Plainclothes officers spotted drivers texting,

including four in the first few minutes as they were setting up. The officers called their uniformed counterparts just down the street, who pulled over the drivers and wrote them tickets. Although this is a special campaign, it won’t be the only time of the year the police crack down, said Van Herk. “Our Traffic Services in Langley is actually fairly proactive,” he said. They target highcrash locations for blitzes at any time of the year. The police are partnering with ICBC on the

annual campaign. The insurance corporation wants to crack down because drivers are 23 times more likely to be involved in a crash if texting, and four times more likely if on a hand held cellphone, said Leanne Cassap, a road safety coordinator for ICBC. Distracted driving is also the third-leading cause of death behind the wheel. A five-year average from 2008 to 2012 revealed that each year, 115 people in B.C. died in crashes related to speed, 95 to impaired driving, and 91 to distractions.

The Trinity Western women’s volleyball team got off to a good start in the pre-season with a pair of four-set wins over UBC Okanagan and Saskatchewan Saturday at UBCO’s Gymnasium. The Spartans beat Saskatchewan in four sets (scores were 25-16, 25-21, 2225, and 25-22) in a match that started at 10 a.m. and then proceeded to beat UBC, also in four sets (25-21, 25-18, 24-26, 25-20) in a 2 p.m. contest. • More online

indoor areas, are now the order of the day. But the playgrounds can be designed to be massive in scale compared to the old monkey bars and teeter totters. “Basically, its an environment that can be multi-level,” said Forbes. “We’ve build them 40 feet in some cases.” Kids go in and out at ground level, and the three-dimensional maze is otherwise boxed or netted in so they can’t fall out. Partly to test out some of their ideas, the company opened the Great Escape on the Langley Bypass. The play areas are now evolving from children’s areas into giving teens and adults something to do. “It’s becoming all ages to some extent,” said Forbes. Air walks, which involve harnesses and climbing, are for older participants. The company has even built some items for facilities that use them for corporate retreats. The biggest project the company is doing now is for the Las Vegas Children’s Museum. Dubbed a “Wow Tower,” it’s the largest structure in height the company has ever done. The entire thing will be about 52 feet tall and will be built around a series of interactive learning exhibits.

International competition

Elite volleyball comes to LEC Canada’s men’s team hosts the NORCECA Continental tournament, starting this Monday, Sept. 23. World-class men’s volleyball arrives at the Langley Events Centre this Monday, Sept. 23, with the opening serves of the NORCECA Men’s Volleyball Continental Championship. Opening day features three matches, including Canada facing Guatemala at 8 p.m. at the LEC. Other games that day include the U.S. against St. Lucia, and Cuba versus the Bahamas. After Monday, Canada faces Mexico next Wednesday, Sept. 25 at 8 p.m. The tournament continues to Sept. 28. “We are very excited to bring this level of volleyball to Langley – it promises to be an excellent event for both competitors and spectators alike,” said Jared Harman, the LEC’s director of business development. Nine teams from the FIVB’s North and Central America and Caribbean regions will participate. Among the top men’s teams in the round-robin tournament are the United States (ranked No. 5 FIVB, No. 1 NORCECA), Cuba (No. 5, No. 2) Canada (No. 11, No. 3), Puerto Rico (No. 20, No. 4), Mexico (No. 23, No. 5) and the Dominican Republic (No. 41, No. 6). It’s been an exciting year for the Canadian team, with its best-ever FIVB World League performance (fifth overall) earlier this summer, including a confi-

dence-boosting win over 2012 Olympic gold medalist team, Russia. This elevated Canada’s overall world ranking from 18th to 11th. “The NORCECA championship is a very important event for us,” men’s Canadian national team coach Glenn Hoag said. “It will mean more high level matches for our group. It will be another amazing experience for our players to play in front of a home crowd. We are training hard with the main objective of winning the event.” The Canadian team includes captain Fred Winters and former Trinity Western University Spartans Rudy Verhoeff and Josh Howatson. The NORCECA’s will feel like a homecoming for Verhoeff as his volleyball career really took off during his time with the Spartans, who play out of the LEC. “I’m ecstatic,” Verhoeff said about coming back to Langley, “I never thought I would be playing on the national team this summer. It’s going to be a dream come true, for sure.” The Spartans hosted the 2011 CIS national championships at the LEC where Verhoeff won his first of two, back-toback, CIS titles. Verhoeff was named MVP in 2011 and following the championship point was raised up by the Spartan fans, who stormed the court with excitement. The full NORCECA event schedule is available at www.langleyeventscentre. com/continentalvolleyball. Tickets can be purchased at Ticketmaster.ca or at the LEC box office. • More about the tournament online at www.langleyadvance.com

Agriculture

Tour goes fresh to frozen The annual farm tour included berry farms and industrial freezers. by Ronda Payne

news@langleyadvance.com

Langley’s agriculturalbased businesses generate about $277 million a year in revenue. Agriculture is big business and while some may think of it as the cows in the field or berries on vines, there is another aspect in getting that food to the consumer. Each year, the Langley Agricultural Advisory Committee (AAC) invites a number of participants on a farm tour to educate, explain, and discuss elements of unique interest in the farming and local communities. This year’s theme was the food supply chain with stops at EV Logistics Warehouses, Coast Cranberries, and Krause Berry Farms and lunch with speakers at the Langley Golf and Banquet Centre. The morning was opened by Township Mayor Jack Froese. “Everything we do in agriculture is to prepare food to eat,” Froese said.

Ronda Payne/Langley Advance

Workers at Coast Cranberries spread pesticides on the high weeds with a stick to avoid the cranberry bushes below. “Every piece of agriculture is important.” One of the AAC members, Dave Melnychuk, addressed the group during the luncheon of the Sept. 12 tour. “Every year, I learn something,” Melnychuk said. “There’s so much to learn it’s so exciting, but we’re starting to learn.” Melnychuk’s biggest enthusiasm was for the recently approved Agricultural Viability Study. This 104 page document was four years in the mak-

ing and solicited a widerange of responses from residents, farmers, processors, and other stakeholders. “The support for agriculture is overwhelming,” Melnychuk said. He added of the document, “It’s very comprehensive, well laid out, and has timelines for the next 20 years.” The strategy, which identifies ways for the Township to support agriculture, was unanimously approved by Council on July 15.

Township of Langley Mayor Jack Froese introduced the Agricultural Advisory Committee’s annual tour on Sept. 12.

Ronda Payne/Langley Advance

General manager of Coast Cranberries, Dale Duley, posed with Jason Chu of Langley Township staff during the farm tour. The site sees five million pounds of berries go through the facility each year and employs 16 people full-time, year round. The keynote luncheon speaker, Dr. Sean Smukler of UBC, spoke about the complexities of the food chain. “It’s a very complex system,” he said. “It worries me. I know how much water there is out there, how much food there is out there, and how much fertilizer there is out there. Not only do we have to increase productivity, but we have to do so with less.” The tour’s final stop was at Krause Berry Farms and

Estate Winery with a focus on the new wine making facility. Owner Alf Krause, discussed the challenges inherent in farming. “There’s never a shortage of issues in agriculture,” he said. The focus of the Krause farm is to sell as much of what is produced on site from the farm as possible. Currently, 100 different items are made at the Krause’s farm in the North Otter area. With more than 49 per cent of all farms in Metro Vancouver in Langley, it’s natural to see continuous advancements, and complexities, in getting that food to consumers.

Gas naturally fills jobs report

The provincial government’s BC Jobs Plan 24-month progress report looks pretty rosy… or at least, its report on the report looks good. The actual report itself is loaded with rose-coloured baffle-gab that attempts to mask a grim reality – the province isn’t really doing particularly well in a continuing sluggish global economy that has almost nobody doing very well. Premier Christy Clark maintains she is “tremendously proud” of the Jobs Plan’s “progress” since it was instiScan tuted two years ago. with Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training Minister Shirley Bond, who has most recently inherited responsibility for the Jobs Plan, optimistically adds that the report “shows that our plan is working.” The report is peppered with positive enthusiasm suggesting successes – but it is also salted with carefully chosen euphemisms that hide realistic phrases that bury the success under politicians’ questionable hopes and dreams. The province is “on the threshold” of success, and has “successfully aided in the progress” towards “prospective” agreements that could (if they get beyond the prospective stage) realize 29,000 jobs. In fact, the province’s private sector is down thousands of full-time jobs – in real numbers, not just short of goals – since the Job Plan was instituted in 2011. Naturally, Clark’s government continues to pin its hopes on liquified natural gas – but reading between the carefully worded lines suggests that the dream is many kilometres short of pipe. The dismal economy is a problem for everyone. We get that. It’s the dishonesty that rankles. We’ve appended the government press release online at www.langleyadvance.com (click on Opinion) so you can judge for yourself how much of the report is just so much natural gas. – B.G.

Clear-cut case of disrespect

Dear Editor, I live in one of the most beautiful parts of South Langley, where we have the luxury of having a substantial number of trees giving us both clean air and shade. But unfortunately, that has now changed. A nearby property was recently sold and the new owner took it upon themselves to deci-

mate it by clear-cutting a large stand of trees, changing the neighbourhood forever and displacing the animals that called that stand of trees home. Fernridge area residents were recently sent questionnaires concerning possible future development of Brookswood, but nothing was mentioned about

Fort Langley

Maple tree safe

Letters to the

Dear Editor, Regarding Janine Twist’s letter [Tree small sacrifice to honour, Sept. 12 Letters, Langley Advance], the Township of Langley would like to clarify that there are no plans to cut down the maple tree on the corner of Glover Road and 96th Avenue in Fort Langley. The tree is a very significant part of our heritage, and we have every intention of keeping it as such. Ramin Seifi, General Manager of Engineering, Township of Langley

Editor

Fernridge being developed. Those who clear-cut their property obviously don’t respect their neighbours. If it continues, South Langley will eventually look like the area of 192nd Street from 16th Avenue to 40th Avenue in Surrey, which has also been clear-cut, and large cement warehouse operations have sprung up. We know where the animals from that area went: dead on the side of the road! Where has the respect gone from our society that has allowed making money, be it tax revenue or profit from selling cleared land, more important than people and their neighbourhoods. I guess, when it is time to elect a new mayor and council, we will have to look for candidates who have ethics, if they even exist anymore. Bev Blake, Langley

Coulter Berry Building

Village commerce draws most people

Dear Editor, A writer claimed that “three hundred thousand visitors a year come [to Fort Langley] to experience a special village, not a business centre in a designated heritage area.” [Wasted farms embarrassing, July 23 Letters, Langley Advance] The federal government’s 2011-2012 numbers for Fort Langley National Historic Site say 81,635 people visited the fort, and 20 per cent were school children on field trips. The Langley Centennial Museum website says nearly 40,000 people attend the museum or book a program with it. In contrast to these institutions with their largely taxpayer-funded budgets, about 65,000 people visited the one-day Cranberry Festival in 2012, according to BIA minutes. Most did not come to Fort Langley to experience history – they were there to peruse the products for sale, get cranberries, and enjoy a festive atmosphere in pleasant surroundings on a bright October day. Fort Langley has a pedestrian-friendly, attractive commercial area in a pleasant natural surrounding. A village is not complete without some area of commerce, and historically, Fort Langley was established for the purpose of trade – recognized in the Fort Langley Community Plan. Christine Burdeniuk, Langley

More than minority in uproar

Dear Editor, Ms. vanPopta wrote that the people who are “in an uproar in Fort Langley are a vocal minority” [Minority fight Coulter Berry, Sept. 12 Letters, Langley Advance]. The “minority,” as it is described, includes all who support heritage, local residents, Township staff, and the Heritage Advisory Commission that rejected the plans, and many tourists. What is the use of municipalities spending countless hours and tax dollars on experts to make guidelines and bylaws if they are not going to be obeyed? Bays Blackhall, Langley

Motives many and varied

Dear Editor, How can Misty vanPopta insinuate that the motives of Fort Langley Residents for Sustainable Development are of a personal

TODAY’S FLYERS... in the

nature against Eric Woodward? It’s dangerous to lump people into categories of “supporters” and “opponents.” There are many sets of variables amongst each category. Misty and others accuse FLRSD of “cherry-picking” this project to oppose. Is she saying anyone who opposed Coulter Berry should have been equally upset about Reid’s Garage? Give me a break. FLRSD volunteered hundreds of hours trying to persuade council to follow the bylaws for Coulter Berry. Reid’s Garage does not threaten the scale or ambiance of the village. This group is focusing on the real threat to the character of Fort Langley. Carl Van Der Hoek, Langley

Fort Langley far short of holy

Dear Editor, Rhetoric around the Coulter Berry building is getting pretty thick. It’s been suggested the building would desecrate Fort Langley [Development desecrating village, Sept. 10 Letters, Langley Advance]. Webster’s Dictionary defines desecration as damaging a holy place or treating a holy place with disrespect. The north end commercial zone of Glover Road is neither a holy place nor hallowed ground. I cannot imagine a couple of Harley enthusiasts looking to cruise out here for a burger and beer at the Fort Pub, or a family from one of the neighbouring communities that wants to take the kids to the national historic site wringing their hands in despair, crying, “Woe are we! We can no longer visit charming Fort Langley, as there is now a three-storey building, complete with underground parking, public washrooms, a terraced restaurant, pedestrian seating, handicap accessible living units, energy-saving geothermal HVAC systems, HRV units, and rainwater capture systems! It’s ruined! We want the empty lot back! Or at the very least, something resembling a 29.5-foot-high 1970s-era tinderbox bereft of sprinklers and loaded with asbestos!” Jamie Clark, Fort Langley [Note: Fuller version of these letters and others on similar topics are online at www. langleyadvance.com.

Europe’s Beauty Secret

Clinically Proven!

Fewer lines and wrinkles, thicker hair, stronger nails and denser bones.

Collagen is the key. During youth, you have a rich abundance of collagen which prevents wrinkles from forming, gives skin elasticity, helps create thick, beautiful hair, strong nails and denser, more flexible bones. But over the years, collagen diminishes.

Starting at age 21, collagen diminishes by 1% per year. By age 30, signs of reduced collagen on skin, hair

and nails become visible, not to mention the increased risk of fracture for bones. Now, genuine collagen regeneration is possible with clinically proven BioSil™. BioSil, helps your body to generate its own collagen to provide support for denser and more flexible bones as well as beautiful skin, hair and nails. Regenerate Collagen with BioSil, One of the the only clinically proven product “best beauty products on with ch-OSA – the most the market” as mentioned on absorbable form of silicon. Guaranteed to work!

BBQ on the Bypass

American team tastes victory For a husband and wife team of barbecue aficionados from south of 49th parallel, the trip to Langley last weekend was well worth the effort. Wine Country Q from Duvall, Wash. won the eighth annual Barbecue on the Bypass, with quality entries in pulled pork, beef brisket, chicken, and ribs.

“It was a great event,” said organizer Angie Quaale from Well Seasoned gourmet food store. “The weather held out, thankfully, and 5,000 people come through.” Sunday’s cook-off, certified by the Pacific Northwest BBQ Association, attracted 17 teams from across the region to the parking lot outside of Well Seasoned.

…continued from page A7 During the course, cadets earned their standard first aid certification and cadet fitness assessment. At the end, Ouellette was presented with the Top Cadet – ISIS Agency award for his contributions and leadership. “Officer Cadet Thavarajah reported that Nicolas exceeded the performance objective for instructional technique on an aerospace subject and exceeded the standards on the theoretical assessment,” his mom Glenda noted. Highlights for Ouellette during the experience included learning to dive to simulate weightlessness in space, the camaraderie of cadets in the program, and forging new friendships. He said he came away from the course with a new appreciation of aerospace technology.

“I learned about all the stuff they have to go through and how difficult it is to get where they are,” he said. Glenda said it was an honour for her son to represent his 746 Lightening Hawk Squadron at this program. “As a parent, I am most appreciative of the learning and leadership opportunities provided to youth through the cadet program,” she said. “We are most appreciative of the Air Cadet League, the department of National Defence, the local community businesses, and the 746 Sponsoring Committee that make this program a success.” Ouellette said he would like to return next year, with a different role. “I was given a high recommendation to return as a staff cadet by my course commanding officer,” he said. “Staff cadets are paid. That would be good.”

Oullette may return as staff cadet

The Township of Langley has been awarded a gold ranking from the E3 Green Fleet Program in recognition of its environmentally friendly and efficient fleet. The municipality previously held a silver rating in 2008. Its fleet was the first in B.C. and only the third in Canada to reach that standard at the time. “We are really pleased that our continued efforts paid off and we were able to surpass our previous E3 level,” said Township community energy manager Ryan Schmidt. “The Township hopes this news will encourage other fleets in our community to take a closer look at their vehicles to identify opportunities for improvement,” he said. “In addition to environmental benefits, significant cost benefits are possible.” The national E3 Fleet program was established in 2006 by the non-profit Fraser Basin Council, in partnership with Western Economic Diversification Canada and the BC Ministry of Environment. The program encourages municipalities to create greener, eco-friendly fleets of vehicles, equipment, and machinery that reduce their impact on

I have yet to check it out yet, but a little bird by the name of Mel-Lynda Andersen has told me Brookswood fixture Annette Waterman and her faithful, fourlegged, furry sidekick Peanut have taken over as owners of the neighbourhood’s long-standing pet store. And I’m told, she’s made a few modifications to the store, including renaming it Petfude.ca. After 35 years in business, former PetFare owner Michael Brown retired, handing over the reins of the shop to long-time his employee of 20 years, Waterman.

Many of you may already know Waterman and can personally account for her love of animals. She and Brown were dolling out pepperoni treats to Brookswood dogs and selling pet food and supplies to their owners for more than two decades. In fact, speaking to her love of animals, here’s a tidbit some of you might not be aware of. Waterman has apparently rescued hundreds through the years, including Sprout, a large parrot that was a rescue and became a resident of the store for years, and now Peanut, who belonged to a former customer until he could no longer take care of her and asked Waterman to take over. Petfude.ca reopened on Sept. 1 in the same old location in Brookswood village. Thanks for the info Mel-Lynda, I’ll be by to check out the renovated digs soon.

he little rescue dog named Gracie barked from inside the door at Judy Nygren’s studio on Billy Brown Road in Fort Langley. “My saving Grace,” said Nygren as she opened the door. Gracie shares Nygren’s live/work space in the Flat Iron building. They are next door neighbours to Floralista, a local florist, and block neighbours to two other artists who will also be in the Langley Art Studio Tour, Pat Barker of the Pencil Studio and Elaine Brewer White of Sculpture Studio. Nygren paints. “I’ve always been an artist,” she said, turning down CBC Radio 2. “I’ve always drawn. I got my first camera at age six and became the family photographer.” Her career was as a wedding photographer for a while. “I started to paint later in life,” she added. “I started to take myself seriously about 10 years ago.” It was then that Nygren was invited to join the Fort Gallery, an artists’ collective, as a board member. That step gave Nygren the “permission to call myself a painter,” she said. Even with her association with the Fort Gallery, she was a bit of a “closet painter” not showing anywhere but in the gallery. Then life threw her a curve ball – as life sometimes does – and Nygren found herself living somewhere other than Fort Langley. “I’d lived in Fort Langley since 1994,” she noted sadly of the time she didn’t live in the area. When the spaces in the Flat Iron building opened up, Nygren got herself into unit number four and hasn’t looked back for a second. “I’ve come home,” she said. “To Fort Langley.

Judy Nygren stands in the doorway of her designated studio space. Her painting When I Grow Up... there will be no breast cancer hangs in the background. Right – Working on a painting communicating the hopes of little girls, Nygren prepares for her first Langley Art Studio Tour. and now I’ve opened a new book and am totally content.” With her studio on the ground floor, large windows allow Nygren to watch the world go by on Billy Brown Road as she paints, but also allow others to look in at her creations. “People will say, ‘when are you going to open [today]’, but I’m just enjoying the process [of painting] so much,” she commented. The process currently is translating a wide range of complex, sometimes painful and emotional, thoughts into paintings through little girls’ dresses. The first in the series is called When I Grow Up... there will be no breast cancer and features Nygren’s daughter-in-law’s wedding dress with her granddaughter’s flower girl dress from the same wedding. The message is made bolder and stronger when one learns that Nygren’s daughter-in-law, Tricia, died of the disease in 2007.

“I want to address little girls,” she said frankly. “They all become women and let’s get rid of this damn disease so they can grow up without fear.” The first of eight paintings of dresses to date, Nygren hopes to complete 12. “I’m in a space of doing little girl’s dresses,” she said. “They’re suspended in hope. There’s something about little girls’ dresses. I was compelled to paint them.” Her subjects are the actual dresses, backlit and hanging in her studio. Nygren doesn’t paint them from pictures. “It gives me way more satisfaction to know the story and paint that dress,” she noted. It is Nygren’s first time participating in the Langley Art Studio Tour and she couldn’t hide her excited smile. “This is my first time because it’s my first time having a studio.”

ow in its fifth year, the Langley Art Studio Tour is a highlight for art lovers in the Langleys. It runs two weekends – Sept. 21, 22, and 28, 29 – and is one of the few ways to see local artists in action in their own creative spaces. Hop in the car (or take part in one of the bus tours) to enjoy the creations of painters, potters, pencil artists, photographers, jewellers, glass-makers, and other new or long-practising artists. The tour is designed as a “do it yourself” scenic drive, through the downtown, countryside, and suburban areas of the community. In addition to having the opportunity to see artists, and in some cases, Ronda Payne/Langley Advan guest artists, at work in Pottery, painting and other works their studios, four stops of interest are indicated on the of art like these by Judy Nygren tour maps, which “tourists” will be on display in studios around can use in whatever order Langley this and next weekend. of interest to them. Printable guide maps are available on the Art Studio Tour website at www.langleyartsstudiotour.ca. At most studios, artists will be actively working on current projects − some will even be offering hands-on demos. Plus, for those who like what they see, many of the pieces are available for sale. More than 50 artists will be open during the tours from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 21 and 28, and Sunday, Sept. 22 and 29. Organizers suggest checking the studio tour website to check any changes to artist availability and see what demos are available.

Arts in brief

LangleyAdvance

Langley joins in B.C.-wide Culture Days festivities by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

L

angley is joining in British Columbia’s Culture Days, and the 450 free events and activities happening province-wide to celebrate arts and culture between Sept. 27 and 29. Hundreds of free, interactive activities are planned across B.C., inviting people to get involved with the arts and artists in their communities to share their love of culture. “Culture Days is an opportunity to showcase the talent and creativity that exists across our province,” said Lucille Pacey, president and CEO of Arts Umbrella, and chair of the BC

Culture Days task force. “From street art to high art, pop culture to traditional culture, Culture Days is an opportunity to engage with art and artists in a different way.” Here in Langley, the annual Art Studio Tour continues Sept. 28 and 29 (see stories page A15) as well as an art show at Murrayville Library on the Friday and Saturday, Sept. 27 and 28; a storytime at the City of Langley Library on the Friday; a 100-Mile Clothing: Spinning, Weaving, and Knitting exhibit on display at the Muriel Arnason Library in Willoughby on the Saturday; music, arts, and crafts at the Fort Langley Farmers Market, again on the Saturday; a yarn bombing and crafts event

at Fort Langley Library on Friday and Saturday; and a family Lego Club event at Cloverdale Library on Saturday.

Rocking the Valley

M

any bands pass through B.C. and only perform on the other side of the Port Mann Bridge. But one Langley-grown artist wants that all to change, for at least one day per year. Alternative-rock musician Daniel Wesley is spearheading the inaugural Rock the Valley music festival, to be held this year in White Rock on Saturday. “I want to start putting on a yearly event in the Lower Mainland to bring some good bands out and hopefully build it

to a bigger and bigger thing, like an outdoor event,” he said. Wesley – who will headline this year’s festival, with funkand-soul septet The Boom Booms opening – hopes to pack the 500-person multi-use hall, located at 15262 Pacific Ave. Tickets for the 19-year-old-plus event are $30 at www.ticketbreak.com/event_details/6588. Doors open at 7.

Community event

Festival for Valley tastebuds Organizers expect the third annual Cork & Keg event to sell out again.

T

here will be a plethora of beer, wine, and food being served up to the masses on Friday night in downtown Langley. For the third year in a row, the community is playing host to Cork & Keg, a festival for local, national, and international wineries, breweries, and distillers to introduce their products to Fraser Valley-based industries and consumers, explained event founder Lynette Faye. “We enjoy the Vancouver-based wine events, but felt the need to connect with our growing audience in the Valley,” she said of the event’s formation a few years back as the only wine, beer, and spirits trade and consumer event outside of Vancouver.

In its third year, the Cork and Keg is anticipating another sellout crowd to their event, that this year has been expanded to include a series of 30-minute seminars hosted by and for industry professionals. “We’ve introduced new seminars for our trade guests, which will add another layer of interest to this popular event,” Faye said, noting this industry-exclusive component runs from 2 to 4:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 20. Pre-registration a must. “Our consumer event, which runs in the evening, has really taken off,” Faye said, noting the public component of the festival runs from 7 to 10 p.m. at the Coast Hotel & Convention Centre. “We know Fraser Valley consumers are increasingly aware of what is available to them, and this event provides each of our guests with an opportunity to find new favourite pairings.”

Langley’s faith-based university is hosting the annual Verge conference next week, including discussion forums about how the arts related to narratives. TWU’s School of the Arts, Media + Culture (SAMC) will present the seventh annual Verge event on Thursday and Friday, Sept. 26 and 27. There will be about 30 presenters speaking during the two-day event and exploring the ways that different art forms, particularly interdisciplinary arts, relate to narrative.

“The arts have always played a key role in telling and creating the stories that shape culture,” said SAMC dean and conference director David Squires. “Digging deep into how this takes

Greek cuisine is comfort food at the same time as it is exotic. And with the combination of ingredients - olive oil, citrus, spices, lean meats, vegetables and fruits - it’s considered one of the heart healthiest cuisines around. But what about those unfamiliar with the cooking that developed over centuries in the heart of the Mediterranean region? The restaurant’s website is a tantalizing place to start, whether it’s for the dine-in menu or the take out/ delivery selections. The Kostas menu also includes a sampling of non-Greek

dishes, including pastas, steaks, and even schnitzel so everyone can find something to enjoy. It’s not just the food that brings people to Kostas Greek Restaurant in Langley City. In addition to the menu, the restaurant also offers up live Greek music every evening on the weekends, with the exception of Summer time when musicians are in high demand at the plethora of Greek Festivals happening around our Province. To top it all off on some occasions you may even get to experience the beauty of live Greek dancing. Owners, Kostas and Bozena Pappas want to greet their patrons with a true taste of Greek life. It is their goal to provide you an experience when you walk through the restaurant doors. Opening their restaurant 13 years ago on Langley’s main drag, the Pappases set out to make an impact in the community and have they ever made their mark. Having won “Best Greek Restaurant” in Langley for 11 consecutive years, the Pappases could not be more grateful for the community in which they chose to open their business along with their loyal customers

Water wise ends season Another summer has come and gone and the Township of Langley has continued to see improved environmental awareness within the community about local water sources, willingness to conserve, and an increased interest to protect our water. In previous years, Water Wise, delivered in partnership with the Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS), targeted outreach in various Township communities through door to door campaigns to help residents learn about their drinking water. This summer, the Water Wise team broadened its outreach through public events, educational workshops, and distribution of informational door hangers. In May, the team hosted 28 water-related school workshops, reaching over 550 elementary students. The children learned how water is used in different industries and how to protect Langley’s groundwater. “It’s great to see that the kids are interested in what we are teaching. They always have endless ideas of ways to save water at home,” said Sarah Carlson of the Water Wise team. The team also visited homes in Brookswood, Aldergrove, Fort Langley, and Walnut Grove, where they distributed approximately 8,700 informational door hangers. As well, the Water Wise team participated in over 25 community events, where they spoke with residents and gave away prizes at the Water Trivia Wheel. Events included Brookswood Summerfest, RBC’s Blue Water Day, Aldergrove Fair Days, and the Canada Day celebrations at McLeod Athletic Park. “It was encouraging to see that com-

In addition to attending community events this summer, the Water Wise team organized free well and septic system seminars for private well owners. With each seminar, approximately 20 residents attended and learned how to maintain their private wells and septic systems. The Water Wise team is looking forward to continuing information seminars in the future with the hope of creating greater awareness within the private well community. The 2013 Water Wise campaign included challenges and prizes for residents who have opted to limit lawn watering to one hour a week or forego watering their lawns altogether and “Go Golden.” Prizes included rain barrels, diverter kits, and an indoor and outdoor water saving kits. It is not too late to fill out the Water Wise survey on the Township of Langley’s website for a chance to win $200 of gift cards to local businesses. Visit tol.ca/waterwise.

LANGLEY, CANADA SEPT. 23 - 28

Langley, BC – Rudy Verhoeff’s first summer of volleyball with the Canadian Men’s National team was not exactly what he was expecting, it was better. The 24 year old cracked the starting lineup during World League play this summer and has been making an impact ever since he stepped on the floor. “I had 2 or 3 blocks within in 5 plays”. Verhoeff said about his first appearance against Portugal, “That showed I could do this. It was exciting and it made a dream come true.” Verhoeff was a major part of Canada’s success in the World League tournament this summer but he knows the teams recent success is all about a full team effort, “It’s not one player here and there, everyone is contributing in some way.” Canada’s run at the World League tournament this summer was one to remember as the team jumped from 18th to 11th in the FIVB World Rankings. The team finished 5th in the tournament which was highlighted by an epic 5 set victory over world number 2 ranked Russia, who ended up winning the 2013 World League title. The upset over Russia was a historic win for Canada and Verhoeff’s serving at the end of the game was a big reason for his team’s ability to finish. Verhoeff had a couple aces which sparked his team at the perfect time, before his Trinity Western University teammate Josh Howatson secured the victory with a game winning block. Verhoeff and his teammates are generating momentum at the perfect time with the 2013NORCECA Men’s Volleyball Continental Championship set for September 23-28 at the Langley Events Centre. The focus for Verhoeff and the team heading into the tournament is simple, “To play well and we want to win,” Verheoff said. The NORCECA’s will feel like a home coming for Verhoeff as his volleyball career really took off during his time with the Trinity

Western University Spartans, who play out of the LEC. “I’m ecstatic,” Verhoeff said about coming back to Langley, “I never thought I would be playing on the National team this summer. It’s going to be a dream come true for sure.” The TWU Spartans hosted the 2011 CIS National Championships at the LEC where Verhoeff won his first of two, back-to-back, CIS Championships. Verhoeff was named MVP in 2011 and following the championship point he was raised up by the Spartan crowd, as the fans stormed the court with excitement. It was a moment that Verhoeff, Spartan fans, and the Township of Langley, will never forget. Verhoeff and his teammates will get to experience their first international tournament in British Columbia this September, with a goal of winning Gold in front of many friends and family. Canada’s round robin action starts with a match against Guatemala on Monday September 23 at 8pm, followed by an 8pm game on Wednesday September 25 against Mexico. All matches will be played at the LEC, for the complete schedule visit www.langleyeventscentre.com/continentalvolleyball .

Time to start spring preparations

W

hen harvesting has emptied vegetable beds and containers, it’s time to figure out ways to ensure good crops next year. Sometimes that involves fall planting. Late September and early October are the ideal times to plant garlic and shallots. In fall, they still have time to make masses of roots before cold and frost shuts down active growth. Winter rye can also be planted. It’s a grass that grows well in cool weather, but needs to be cut down to the ground in spring, and the top growth composted before it seeds. The glory of this grass is the way it improves soil structure with masses

of fine roots. They break up the soil and quickly decompose when they’re dug in. Optimistic people who love salads could try planting leafy salad crops now (arugula, corn salad, mustard) because a warm, moist fall could give them some deliciously young, fresh leaves. At this time of year, containers are excellent for this venture, especially if they can be moved into sheltered places and protected with copper tape to deter slugs. It’s a few weeks yet to leaf-fall, but raked leaves make a good, airy mulch for garlic and shallots, and are useful to stop soil compaction on vacant beds where there’s no cover crop. Leaves tend to blow

In answering a question on figs the week before last [Care for figs, tomatoes, Sept. 5 In the Garden, Langley Advance], I used a wrong term. It’s actually the first crop of figs that’s called the “breba” crop. Thanks to Burnaby reader Sean for setting me straight on that. Sean, who has a collection of fig trees, says he believes ‘Desert King’ is the most productive and reliable fig variety here. His five-year-old tree produced 300 figs last year.

Stiff wire, like old fencing or stucco wire, can be handy through all seasons, from holding up crops (like the broad beans shown here) to holding down leaves for a winter mulch over dormant beds.

around when dry, but can be held down with branches from pruning, or with wire netting. Wire is useful stuff for vegetables, especially the stiffer-type, stucco wire. Besides holding down mulch, it can support vining pea plants in spring, and also cover seedlings from invasions by dogs, cats, and family members. Storage can be an issue, but once the wire is stomped flat, it takes up almost no space hanging on the back wall of a garden shed or possibly a secluded fence. It’s often more convenient to leave some root vegetables like beets, carrots, leeks and potatoes in the garden until they can be used. Leaves and cut-up stems of corn make a great, airy mulch that can keep storage crops frost-free but gives access right through frosts. Garden storage for root vegetables is two-edged, though, because rows of veggies are an easy-access pantry for voles who make tunnels right under the relevant rows. Grass clippings aren’t good cover at all for winter crop storage, since they pack down wet and solid, and become mouldy. But grass clippings are a good cover for empty vegetable beds, since they are wind-resistant and contribute some nitrogen into the soil as they decay. Birds love scratching in the clippings, because earthworms love them and by spring have reared

A total of 200 solar panels now adorn the roof of a Langley business, the largest solar panel installation connected to the grid in B.C. Canada Ticket installed the panels this summer and is now drawing 10 to 15 per cent of its needs for its Port Kells printing plant from the panels. Raj Gurm, CEO of P2 Solar, and Wally Robins, CEO of Canada Ticket, are both pleased with the project.

Disciplinary Notice James Camsoon Hum, Surrey BC, - Cancellation of Membership

by Matthew Claxton

A disciplinary inquiry was held in July 2013 into Mr. Hum’s conduct in relation to

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

four separate projects that involved both structural and geotechnical engineering services. The Discipline Committee concluded Mr. Hum’s conduct in all four matters was unprofessional and that he is incompetent. A hearing with respect to penalty was held on August 27, 2013 and the Discipline Committee issued an Order dated September 5, 2013 cancelling Mr. Hum’s membership in the Association effective immediately. The Committee also ordered that Mr. Hum pay fines and costs in the amount of $89,000 within 60

days of the date of the Order.

Every day of sunshine makes a dent in the power bills at Canada Ticket’s factory in North Langley. The facility is now generating about 53 kilowatts of power from the sun, thanks to a solar power grid installed on the roof. A short distance from the whizzing cars of Highway One, Canada Ticket CEO Wally Robins said it’s just the latest in a series of energy efficiency and green measures. Walking through the factory causes lights to come on and off, thanks to motion sensors. All outside lighting was switched to LEDs last year, to save power, and the plant is working to prevent any wasted water at all from leaving, recycling everything but what comes out of the bathroom sinks.

However, the solar panels are the largest investment so far, about $160,000 to $170,000. Robins said with depreciation, they’ll be paid off in about 10 years from savings. They’ll also put power back into the BC Hydro grid when the plant isn’t running on sunny weekends. “This is the largest system to date that’s not connected to B.C. Hydro,” said Raj Gurm, CEO of P2 Solar. There are a handful of systems of a larger or similar size, but those are in isolated First Nations communities off the main power grid. All the panels are made in Canada, he said. Once set up, the system has no moving parts and doesn’t require a lot of maintenance. “It just starts making electricity when the sun comes up and stops when it goes down,” said Gurm. Robins said the system is hooked up to the most power-hungry machinery in the plant, and will feed into that first. After that, it goes into the next machine, and the next. On the weekends, power flows out of the plant and BC Hydro pays them.

9-1-1

Safety’s message reinforced Langley seniors visited with emergency responders and learned about 9-1-1 calls. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com A Langley seniors residence hosted Langley Mounties, Township firefighters, and paramedics on Friday as part of a barbecue to thank first responders. The lunchtime event at the Renaissance

Retirement home on 203rd Street allowed seniors from the home to talk about how they have been assisted by emergency responders. Events like this are held every year, and this year’s theme is about letting seniors know when they should call for help. Renaissance manager Jane Johnston said the 9-1-1 theme came out of the concerns that some seniors don’t want to call the emergency number, often even when they should. continued on page A30…

Gary Proznick of the Langley Township Fire Service laid out examples of items that caused or were part of local fires.

…continued from page A29 Many seniors don’t want to be a bother, or they don’t believe their condition is serious enough, or they fear they may not be allowed to come home from the hospital. “The hesitation takes precious moments off of treatment,” said Johnston, who was trained and worked as a nurse. Aside from having fun, the goal of the barbecue is to educate and demystify. A B.C. Ambulance crew was on scene – taking time off to do an emergency call – and residents and vistiors could take a look inside their vehicle. Gary Proznick, a public education officer with the Langley Township fire department, set out melted and burned items taken from real fires around the community. One was a melted rice cooker that had been stored inside an oven; the owner turned on the oven to pre-heat without taking it out. The annual thank-you to first responders is held on the Friday closest to Sept. 11, said Johnston.

Hospice

Garden party brings hospice message to community

The organization that helps those dying and grieving is inviting Langley to learn more. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

At 30 years old, the Langley Hospice Society has decided to celebrate by inviting the community over for a garden party. Langley Hospice supports those who are facing a terminal illness, as well as relatives both before and after the loss of a loved one. “It’s the kind of thing you don’t look for until you need it,” said Shannon Todd Booth, spokesperson for the society in Langley. Reaching out and making their mission better known is why they’ll be opening up the backyard of the Hospice’s Supportive Programs Centre in Langley City. While they’re better known for their centre for palliative care, a lot of work and volunteering takes place at a converted house at 20660 48th Avenue, just

across the street from one of the City’s athletic parks. The building only hosts about seven staff members, but it is bustling with volunteers on most days. In the warmer months, the back yard and the veranda is often busy with volunteers meeting, or with children and teens who are at the centre for counselling after the death of a family member. A recent project in grief support for children allowed the kids to smash plates outside, said Todd Booth. That part of the exercise was to help them express some of the frustration that can become pent up in kids. The pieces of plates were then collected, the children wrote memorial messages on them, and they were made into paving stones. Some of the stones will be placed around part of the back garden of the Programs Centre. It’s that kind of work that will be supported by the tickets to the garden party. Visitors to the event next Thursday will pass by a series of displays outlining the history of hospice. They’ll also hear from Gary Grant

Zado first met the Penners at a Muscular Dystrophy awards event in October 2012, where Cam and Doug presented a series of honours on behalf of the national charity. Zado followed up a few months later, asking a lot of questions, then informing Cam he was going to organize a local ride. Since Cam and Doug were free, the bike lovers chose to attend the inaugural Island event. “Doug had a blast,” Cam said. “He loved it.

A few family and friends around the world have held their own rides in Doug’s honour in past. But they’ve always been individual riders going out on or around ride-day.

Cam and Doug don’t expect to be attending that one.

laying in the B.C. Premier Baseball League, Langley Blaze position players Mitchell Robinson and Luke Horanski, as well as Abbotsford Cardinals pitcher Liam KanoMcGregor know a thing or two about playing under pressure. They do, after all, compete in the BCPBL, which offers the highest level of U18 baseball in the province; a league that has produced notable pros Brett Lawrie, Justin Morneau, Ryan Dempster, Adam Loewen, and Jeff Francis. But from Sept. 20-24, all three will be under a microscope of epic proportions in Canada’s largest city. Kano-McGregor, Robinson, and Horanski have been chosen to play on the lone B.C. team taking part in Tournament 12, a fourday competition that highlights the best Canadian baseball players with college eligibility. Ten teams will represent the Canadian provinces: three from Ontario, two from Quebec, and one each from B.C., Alberta, and Atlantic Canada, as well as a combined team from Manitoba and Saskatchewan, and a futures team made up of players from all provinces. Each team will play at least four games at Toronto’s Rogers Centre, with the tourney champion being crowned Tuesday, Sept. 24. This tournament is designed to showcase Canadian baseball talent to professional scouts and to schools across North America. Scouts from 19 NCAA schools will take in the action. The Langley contingent is bracing for one pressure-cooker of a tournament. “I think it will make or break my career,” Kano-McGregor said. “[There’ll be] a lot of exposure out there.” Robinson hopes to show the scouts what he’s got to offer.

LangleyAdvance

Stealth add pair of Langleyites in 2013 NLL draft Langley’s professional lacrosse team stockpiled for its future earlier this week. The Vancouver Stealth, which debuts at the Langley Events Centre in the new year, added nine players in the 2013 National Lacrosse League Entry Draft, held Monday at the Toronto Rock Athletic Centre in Oakville, Ont.

The Stealth held a first round pick for the first time since 2008. With the Stealth’s eighth overall pick, the team selected lefty forward Cody Bremner. Bremner spent the last two seasons in the Western Lacrosse Association playing for the Nanaimo Timbermen, and has shown strong offensive abilities. He scored 69 points and was named the WLA Rookie of the Year in 2012, and in 2013 he added another 54 points. “We really wanted to add a lefty forward,” said Stealth head coach Chris

Hall following the draft. “Bremner was the No. 1 guy on our list, so we couldn’t have been more pleased to get him.” The Stealth then selected transition player Nick Weiss 17th overall. The Port Hope, Ont. native had 28 points in 19 games for the Peterborough junior A Lakers this past season. “He is a scrappy guy who we saw here in the combine and was really touted as one of the top defenders in the draft,” Hall said.

It was at this point of the draft when the Stealth made a big move as they traded Mitch Jones to the Buffalo Bandits for the 20th overall pick, along with the fifth round selection in the 2015 NLL Entry Draft. Jones was selected 21st overall by the Stealth in last year’s draft. With the newly acquired 20th pick, the Stealth selected Tyler Digby from New Westminster. The Stealth followed up with the 22nd overall pick and nabbed a

Red hot Raiders romp past visiting Rams Langley wasn’t able to match the intensity of the Vancouver Island Raiders last weekend.

Langley Rams receiver Dylan MacDermid caught a pass between VI Raiders defenders Jaxxen Wylie and Andrew Rowe during B.C. Football Conference action Saturday in Nanaimo. The Raiders defeated the Rams 41-27.

The Langley Rams suffered their first decisive loss of the B.C. Football Conference season last weekend. The Vancouver Island Raiders built a 27-18 halftime lead, and then outscored the visitors 14-9 in the third quarter. Neither team registered a point in the final stanza in a 41-27 Raiders victory. Frustrated Rams coach Ted Kirby didn’t pull any punches after the loss. “Honestly, I think it was the worst game we played all year. I feel we played terrible,” Kirby said. “We prepared all week like we always prepare, and we got out “We’re starting to play some Raiders on the field and we didn’t perform.

“We need to get back to basics and we need to challenge each other and find the heart that we had at the beginning of the season,” Kirby said. “Right now we’re lacking that.” On Saturday, the Raiders took control in the second quarter, pulling out to a 27-8 lead. In a balanced attack, five Raiders scored touchdowns including Andrew Deleon, Dylan Schrot, quarterback Jamie Ybarra, Tomusiak, and Mikhail Maloff. Kicker Ryan Jones booted a field goal, single, and five converts. For the Rams, running back Nathan Lund ran for two touchdowns while receiver Jacob Carvery connected with quarterback Jahlani Gilbert-Knorren for a major score.

Rams kicker Steven Thomas kicked a field goal, single, and three converts. Gilbert-Knorren was good on 12 of 27 passes for 192 yards and one touchdown. Sixty-one of his 192 yards came on one completion to Dan English. Gilbert-Knorren also had one of his passes picked off. His Raiders counterpart, Ybarra, threw the ball often, with mixed results.

They’ll come hungry and will be looking to punch us right in our face, and see if we’re prepared.”

BC’s recycling system makes it so easy to Return-It Thanks to BC residents, about 80% of beverage containers sold in the province are recovered and recycled into something new. In 2012, that was close to one billion containers kept out of landfills.

Panorama Village Return-It, 5-Star location, Surrey, BC

There are over 170 Return-It™ Depots in BC. Find them at return-it.ca/locations

By Sandy Sigmund Vice President, Development & CMO Encorp Pacific (Canada)

Encorp Pacific (Canada) is one of North America’s leading not-for-profit product stewardship corporations. With a mandate to develop and manage a consumerfriendly, cost-effective system to recover end-of-life products and packaging for recycling, Encorp’s recycling network is extensive, and stretches across the province. Probably best known for the ReturnIt™ System, Encorp’s recycling network includes over 170 Return-It™ Depots in BC. Each depot is independently owned, often family-operated, and provides business and employment opportunities for communities across the province. As the cornerstones of the Return-It™ System, these depots are known by 85% of BC residents, and are the most common way that a beverage container is returned for recycling into the system. Conveniently, many Return-It™ Depots also accept a variety of other stewardship products, including electronics, small appliances, paint and more. More information about what’s accepted where can be found at return-it.ca/locations. To ensure customers get the best possible recycling experience, Encorp has taken steps to modernize depots by creating 3 & 5 Star Depot Programs. Depots certi[ed in the program must meet speci[c standards for service, cleanliness, design and convenience. Today’s depots are clean, bright and open, with large sorting tables. Nearly every customer (94%) who’s re-

cently visited a depot is satis[ed with the experience. While beverage containers can still be returned to any retailer in BC, their returns only represent 7% of the total collected. Return-It™ Depots collect the vast majority of containers, and are part of a comprehensive recycling network. For hotels, office buildings, restaurants, other businesses and multi-family buildings, many Return-It™ Depots and specialized mobile collectors offer a pick-up program, primarily provided within the Vancouver area. Independent contractors will pick-up used containers and take them to Return-It™ collection facilities. If you live in a townhouse, condominium or apartment, look for the Encorp or Return-It™ branded collection bins installed in your ga rbage and recycling area. If you live in a residence where municipal pickup is available, you can leave containers for curbside pickup – be aware, though, that the type of containers accepted will vary based on your municipality. It’s always best to check with your local municipality to con[rm what’s acceptable and what isn’t. For recycling ‘on the go’, you may have noticed that Encorp has installed 60 new beverage container recycling bins in the City of Vancouver. These bins are nonlocking and designed to be self-serviced by residents or people wanting to receive the deposit refund attached to each container. A round 176 bea r-proof recycling bins can also be found in approximately 14 BC parks. The parks receive the deposit refunds and most proceeds are given to their chosen charities. To date, more than $75,000 in deposit refunds have been provided to BC Parks.

CONTAINERS GET A SECOND LIFE Used aluminum cans are crushed and baled. The bales are sold and the aluminum is melted down and reformed into new aluminum cans. It takes 95% less energy to manufacture a recycled can than it does to make a new one. Drink boxes and cartons are mashed into a paper pulp that is used to make cardboard boxes and tissue paper. Every tonne of recycled paper pulp saves approximately 17 trees. Plastic bottles are washed, shredded and formed into pellets. From there, the material is sold to companies who turn those pellets into new plastic containers. Used glass bottles are crushed into a fine material called cullet. Cullet is used in the manufacturing of a variety of things such as new bottles, sandblasting material and fiberglass insulation.

Return-It School is back Also this year, Encorp relaunched ReturnIt™ School, a free program in which schools receive recycling bins and mobile pickup services, and can compete with one another for cash prizes. Teachers get access to educational curriculum and entertaining presentations that help educate their students about recycling. Students also have an online learning centre, with fun educational resources that include interesting facts, goal setting, school hall-of-fame and more.

Who foots the bill? Encorp is 100% industry operated and receives no government funding. They combine private sector efficiencies with a high degree of transparency to manage these various recycling programs. With BC’s growing recycling networks, recycling couldn’t be easier. Look for a Return-It™ Depot or recycling bin near you, and keep your recyclable products in the system and out of the land[ll.
