A driver from Cambridge, Ont., had spectacularly bad luck on Tuesday when his car caught fire just before 4:30 p.m. on busy 200th Street near 86th Avenue. The driver got out safely and no one was injured, but the fire destroyed the car and blocked rush hour traffic for some time in one of the busy southbound lanes. The Langley RCMP came to do traffic control once the fire was extinguished, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the local police. The officers helped the driver get some of his possessions out of the vehicle, which was then towed.

The Langley School Board is hiking the fees it gets from developers to buy land for new schools in growing neighbourhoods. The current fees are $354 per unit for low density housing, $283 for medium density and $212 for high density. The proposed fees are slightly more than double the current rates at $737 (low), $590 (medium), and $443 (high). “I think it’s time we got on with it and adopt it,” said Trustee Alison McVeigh.

If TWU ever decides to sell the land, the Township has the right of first refusal, and can buy it back. TWU interim president Bob Kuhn said it was a special gift, one that will allow students to learn there for years to come. “Creating green space in this kind of a community is a very special thing,” said Kuhn. “I’m very grateful for this,” he added. Mayor Jack Froese noted that the Township had its feet held to the fire over the land issue by the community. The Township wanted to sell a considerable amount of land in the area to pay for other projects, but took some off the market after an outcry. Froese said he had hoped that the community would come forward to find a way to preserve the remaining lands. “Today we can say that the community has come forward,” said Froese.

The family that bought a Langley forest to preserve it for future generations was honoured Tuesday at Grey Pit. Thomas Blaauw used to drive past the lands known as Grey Pit and McLellan Forest every day, his daughter Janet told crowds at the ceremony. The farming family started out with Thomas and his wife Ann, farming in South Langley in the 1960s. In 1980, they bought a cranberry farm near the Grey Pit lands, and Thomas liked the forested lots. He always spoke of buying the property someday, Janet said. After Thomas’s death, his family was looking for some way to commemorate his passing. They realized that the lands at the centre of the intense debate between Langley Township and locals and environmental-

Money needed for bike lanes

Langley’s cyclists are hoping to see more funds for bike lanes, and more recognition.

The two-lane rural road along the border with the United States is a popular destination for weekend road cyclists.

Heritage

Paving heritage road considered Langley’s oldest paved road could get a makeover next year, but of asphalt or concrete? by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

The fate of the oldest stretch of paved road in Langley will hang on next year’s budget debates in the Township. On Monday, the council received a report about the varied opinions and options facing them. The report notes that the staff have received “input expressing varied, diverse, and often conflicting goals,” when it comes to the stretch of road between 216th Street in the east and the border of Langley City in the west. That stretch of Old Yale, connecting what was then the Langley Prairie to Five Corners in Murrayville, was paved with concrete in 1922, an event so important the premier of the day visited.

Much of the original concrete still exists more than 90 years later. The road is considered a historic location. Replacing it with asphalt would cost $1.2 million, with concrete $3.5 million, and with asphalt plus about 380 metres of concrete would cost $2 million, according to a staff report. Councillor Kim Richter voted against any more debate on the issue, saying she just wants to see the bumpy and cracked road surface replaced sooner rather than later. “I think we should just get on with repaving it,” said Richter. She doesn’t support the idea of heritage cement, Richter said. Wally Martin, who runs the Princess and the Pea bed and breakfast at the eastern end of the road, disagrees.

“The heritage road is there, it’s part of the heritage plan,” Martin said. He said that he would be fine with seeing the old and broken panels of concrete replaced, but they should be replaced with the same type of concrete. You don’t put up vinyl siding on a heritage house, Martin said, you have to “I think we preserve the way something should just was originally get on with constructed. repaving it.” He would also like to Councillor Kim Richter see the date stamps along the road preserved. The original construction crew wrote the date in the cement each time they stopped work for the day. Several of the date stamps are still visible along the road, although others have crumbled away over the years.

No public ballot on City’s Metro member Langley City council won’t let the public vote for their Metro Vancouver board representative. by Heather Colpitts

hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Langley City residents won’t get a chance to decide who represents their community on the Metro Vancouver board. City Councillor Dave Hall was the only person on council to vote in favour of asking voters to choose the City representative on the regional district board. At the Sept. 23 council meeting, he made a motion to change the process, noting that the position comes with extra responsibility and extra pay. He said the mayor chooses the Metro Van rep but the City should have a procedure for the public to choose the rep more democratically. Others on council did not agree. “I think it’s worked quite well and I don’t see any reason to change it,” commented Coun. Jack Arnold. Coun. Gayle Martin, the City’s longtime Metro Van rep, said the mayor does not make the appointment, noting that council must approve appointments.

Two transit hubs eyed

Future transit expansion will likely include two centrally located hubs in Langley City. by Heather Colpitts

hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Langley City could be home a transit hub at Willowbrook Shopping Centre and one downtown on 203rd Street, but plans are years from completion. City council gave its approval in principle to a plan outlined at the Sept. 23 council meeting that calls for the two hubs or transit exchanges. “We wanted the exchange to complement a future rapid transit [service],” said TransLink’s Jeff Busby. The downtown site would be in the area of 203rd Street and Fraser Highway. TransLink has reached an agreement to use the former Langley Concrete site until a new transit exchange is completed in the future. “This concept plan does not commit the City to any funds,” noted Acting Mayor Ted Schaffer. Busby noted that the transit exchanges would only happen as the areas are redeveloped as there are pieces of land that need to be bought. In the case of Willowbrook there would need to be agreements in place to allow transit to use part of the shopping mall site. Councillor Dave Hall said he would be glad to see more transit for the area but noted that there is nowhere for people to

Transit plans (left) feature commercial and residential redevelopment at 203rd Street and Fraser Highway. park near the exchange. Busby said most users would likely take feeder buses to the 203rd Street exchange. “We examined the demand for parking,” he noted. He said private land owners could look at providing parking to transit users. “It could well be a cash cow,” Hall commented. Council also asked about whether having these transit exchanges here would mean there is an extra zone and passengers would have to pay more.

Busby said Langley is within Zone 3 (South of the Fraser) and there is no intention to change that. He noted that with the move to the new Compass card system, TransLink is looking at pricing that is more fair to riders, such as distance pricing. Langley Township endorsed the Willowbrook exchange plans at a meeting this summer. As part of the planning, TransLink held various sessions with stakeholders, affected landowners and the public regarding both exchanges.

Caring all the way to the end

Few people want to die. Even those who commit suicide actually just want to get out of a life that they feel, for whatever reason, has become untenable. But it’s a fact of all our lives that the end will arrive for every one of us at some point, whether we are ready or not. That’s why we have to express our admiration for a group of people who for the past 30 years have devoted so much time and energy to caring about, understanding, and preparing those who know they are coming to the end of life. The hospice movement has become an important part of the grieving process for the dying and their families in communities throughout B.C. and across Canada. Helping people negotiating the reality of terminal illness is, of course, only one of the many vital services around death and dying that are so ably and compassionately provided by the Langley Hospice Society. Its role goes far beyond palliative care. The service provided by hospice volunteers goes beyond death… literally. Hospice is also there for those who remain behind, helping the bereaved to cope with the new reality of lost loved ones – wives and husbands, children and parents, dear friends and anyone else who has been placed on the difficult road of grief. It’s a great irony, in a world in which “nothing is certain except death and taxes,” that hospice care improves both life and death – and saves us tax money by allowing people to die in more comfortable surroundings than an acute care bed in a hospital. But perhaps some of the most important work hospice does involves talking, whether in formal grief counselling or lending an ear during home or hospital visits. No one seems to want to talk about death, even when the dying want to. Hospice volunteers may fill the void themselves, or help bridge the gap between those who need to speak and who need to hear, to make the coming journey – for both – just a little easier. For 30 years, the Langley Hospice Society has been smoothing some of the bumps on a path that we all, eventually, will tread. – B.G.

Clean up all derelict homes

Dear Editor, If Councillor Charlie Fox is so keen to get tough with owners of derelict homes [Council mulls demolition laws, Sept. 12, Langley Advance], he should focus on derelict buildings in general – like the corner of 264th Avenue and Fraser Highway. That corner has been an eyesore for a number of years (it has received approval for rezoning), and continues to be a blight on the face of Aldergrove. Aldergrove, of course, is not high on the priority list of our current councillor. It’s merely the hind end of a horse going east, and will continue to be until the council of the Township comes to the reality that we who live here help pay their salaries. Poor Mr. Fox has to live next to a “derelict” house, and that bothers him. How does he feel about two derelict buildings sitting on a piece of property that the owner has allowed to become overgrown, in a high-profile location at a major intersection in Aldergrove? It doesn’t bother him much, I’m guessing. And I’m guessing that Coun. Bob Long couldn’t care less either. Why on earth do we have to wait and see what other municipalities are doing? Are we not a municipality in our own right? Do we not have the ability to make decisions for ourselves? Can we not make our own decisions as to how we deal with issues that are affecting our communities within the Township?

What did we elect those guys to do? Sit back and see what Surrey or Burnaby or Mission or Port Moody do? No. They were elected to look after issues that affect our Township. So they need to get off their lazy butts and do what’s best for the to the Township, and stop worrying about what the neighbours are doing. If we have a problem with derelict buildings, then deal with the owners and make them get rid of them, or make the owners clean up the mess and reduce the eyesore. I don’t care what they are doing in Surrey or Burnaby or wherever else – just deal with what will work best in the Township. Debbie Atkinson, Aldergrove

Don’t mull, just get ’er done

Dear Editor, What’s to mull [Council mulls demolition laws, Sept. 12, Langley Advance]? Councillor Charlie Fox’s motion to amend the Abandoned Properties Bylaw should definitely be passed. Seeing developers have the dollars to buy the properties, they should certainly be responsible to take down buildings promptly, before they become an eyesore or gathering place for mischief for others living in the area. Dee Mattenley, Langley

Response

Thoughts about accidents very odd

Dear Editor, I read with interest your very odd thoughts [Learn from especially bad day, Sept. 24 Odd Thoughts, Langley Advance]. They included furnishing police officers with halos and a not-so-subtle attempt at chastising judges across Canada for their court decisions pertaining to auto accidents. Missing, however, was reference to the fact that accidents are still accidents. While it’s quaint that your daily hero is some holier-than-thou motorcycle cop, you may be reminded of the young man hit

head-on and killed near Agassiz a few years ago. The culprit, a driving Mountie. I wonder: was he the officer who provided the bad news to the family? It’s pretty hard to find a Mountie not on their computer while in their cruiser. Without question, distracted driving is dangerous, but with humans being human, accidents happen. Even when wrong, they are still accidents. Our jails would soon be full, if that was forgotten and judges merely wielded a heavy gavel. Michael Belway, Langley

Animal welfare

All creatures need helping hands

Dear Editor, As we’ve all noticed, the wildlife population seems to have tripled around Langley City, due to animals being displaced with the everincreasing construction of bigger and better housing. As the homeless animal population swells in search of new digs, they are being met with the disdain of the homeowners whose land they are re-homing on.

Coyotes are caught in illegal leg-hold traps, raccoon families burn in chimneys as people start their fireplaces, and brakes screech as vehicles try to avoid everything from ducks to opossums to squirrels. But what’s to be done? Last week I had occasion to search for assistance myself, as a peacock came strutting into our yard. As peacocks are not

Animal welfare

Poop points given support

Dear Editor, I want to offer my support to D. Atkinson’s viewpoint regarding cat poop [Cats poop without responsibility, Sept. 24 Letters, Langley Advance]. Cats should be kept as indoor pets, as recommended by veterinarians. That way, owners will be responsible for cleaning out their litter boxes, as well as preventing cats from killing wildlife, particularly birds. Patricia Tallman, Langley

native to B.C., I knew he would not survive the winter here. I called the SPCA, LAPS, Critter Care, and Mountainview Conservation Centre. All were very polite, but none would help. Not surprisingly, many people I spoke to have similar stories to tell, as they, too, required aid in dealing with wild animals at times. The above organizations profess to care so much for animal welfare, yet do nothing when approached. This is frustrating in a time when the native habitat is being torn asunder and there’s such a need for a real animal rescue. Wake up, people. It’s time to organize and build one rescue organization for all animals, not just a chosen few. Maureen Miller, Langley

Inclusivity

Langley comes together Celebrating all walks of life and all ranges of ability is what Saturday’s Community Living Day is all about. by Ronda Payne news@langleyadvance.com

No one should feel left out of their own community. Community Living Day honours this belief by providing a venue for all individuals, regardless of age, income, or ability to come together. Held the last Saturday in September, the Langley iteration of the provincial initiative will be held in Douglas Park from 10:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. With October being Community Living Month in B.C., Saturday is the perfect day to kick things off. Inclusion is the theme for Langley’s Community Living Day with the local name for the event being “Celebrate Inclusion – together, WE CAN.” The event allows participants and visitors to reflect on the many things those with developmental disabilities bring to the community.

Langley Advance files

Inclusive sporting events see everyone working together to have fun at Community Living Day which is Sept. 28 this year. Approximately 350 citizens and 70 volunteers are expected to take part through informative displays, sports, and activities. Organizers have planned events that everyone can participate in. It will be a time for laughing, joking around, and getting to know each other. Everyone in and around Langley is invited to take part. The event also showcases the many service

organizations in the area through their volunteers, information, and involvement. Visit Douglas Park Saturday to take in the fun: • 10:30 a.m. – Community ball hockey game with VIPs, Township and City fire departments, and Special Olympic athletes • Noon – special surprise event • 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. – Children and youth activities, and live music.

Mercedes joins auto mall What’s in

Admittedly, I have noticed a lot more luxury automobiles cruising the streets of Langley in recent months. And without question, it ties directly to the influx of high-end automobile dealerships setting up shop in town. The newest in that string of dealers is Mercedes-Benz, which is holding its grand opening celebrations this Saturday. The Dilawri Group of Companies has completed a 50,000-square-foot facility that will house Mercedes, Smart car, and Sprinter sales and service. Located at the corner of Glover Road and the Langley Bypass, this is the largest Mercedes-Benz dealership in Western Canada. They’re going to be holding a party Saturday to celebrate, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., and in addition to offering tours of the facility, they will be serving up Tracycakes cupcakes, entertaining the masses with the musical stylings of the Max Zipursky Trio, and allowing test drives and demonstrations with automotive expert Zack Spencer. There will even be a draw, with one lucky visitor winning a trip for two to see the Mercedes-Benz factory and museum in Germany. More information at www. mercedesbenz-langley.ca.

Toy chain sets up on bypass

In other local business happenings, Mastermind Toys has announced it is expanding to B.C. and will be opening a

new store in Langley in late November. Just in time for the holiday season, the Ontario-based toy retailer is opening a 5,700-square-foot store in Langley Gate Shopping Centre – near the corner of 200th Street and the Langley Bypass. Founded 29 years ago by brothers Andy and Jonathan Levy, Mastermind will be opening its 29th location on Nov. 29 in Langley. “With a significant online B.C. customer base, establishing a physical store is the next logical step for Mastermind as we continue to grow our brand across Western Canada,” said CEO and cofounder Jon Levy. “We are thrilled to be launching our first B.C. store in Langley.”

Cookies help sick kids smile

Those with a sweet tooth might be pleased to know that devouring a Tim Hortons cookie this week aids sick kids. My favourite place for an Earl Grey tea, Timmy’s is selling freshly baked chocolate chunk Smile Cookie for $1, with 100 per cent of “the proceeds” (which I take to mean minus the cost of making them) going to BC Children’s Hospital. Through initiatives like this, Tim Hortons restaurant owners and patrons have raise more than a million dollars for BC Children’s Hospital Foundation since 2002. That’s a pretty cool accomplishment. Keep up the great work, and thanks for giving me justification to devour a Timmy’s cookie – like I need any arm twisting.

Survivor beats disease and fights fat A breast cancer survivor takes on her next challenge of an obstacle course to raise funds.

noted. Then, she learned about the Concrete Hero urban obstacle course to benefit the BC Cancer Foundation

by Ronda Payne

news@langleyadvance.com

Someone fit and healthy shouldn’t end up with a life threatening disease. That was Langley resident Leanna Butorac’s thought when she was diagnosed with breast cancer in October of 2008. “I was always involved in fitness,” said the woman who had been a fitness instructor for 20 years prior to the shocking news. Breast cancer was the last thing she’d expected. “It was a good four month ordeal,” she said of the extensive treatment that ran into May of 2009. Through the mammograms, biopsies, surgeries, and ultimately years of medication, Butorac gained undesired weight. “I got myself into kind of a funk,” she said. “I put on 30 pounds. Then last year I said, ‘I’m done with this’.” The lack of exercise and not watching what she ate took its toll, driving Butorac back to the world of exercise. She joined the Bootcamp Effect, a local fitness organization. “I started having a lot of fun and got myself back into shape,” she

Leanna Butorac is looking forward to the challenging event later this month. The Langley woman was diagnosed with breast cancer in October 2008. She will participate in Concrete Hero. to be held on Sept. 29. “It isn’t about me,” Butorac said. “It’s about helping other people who need it.” The first charitable event of its

kind in Canada, Concrete Hero is filled with replica obstacles like “Lions Gate Lockdown” (a mock traffic jam participants must climb over), “The Chief” (nearly two storeys to scale), and “Lost Lagoon” (a rope swing over muddy waters). These obstables are right up Butorac’s alley, given the unique and challenging training she’s been involved in at Bootcamp Effect. “We flip tires, throw medicine balls, all kinds of different things,” she noted. Not just to support Butorac, but to support everyone dealing with cancer, the Bootcamp Effect formed a team for Concrete Hero and is sitting in the top three groups for funds raised. Butorac considers herself honoured to be part of such an enthusiastic group. “We all want to help others, and do the event,” she noted. By bringing her love of exercise to the forefront, Butorac will be both challenging herself as well as having fun. Be part of the first annual Conrete Hero by supporting a participant or check out the action in downtown Vancouver on Sept. 29. There will be an urban block party after the event.

Driver Bonnie Bieber took a Tesla electric sports car through Langley earlier this month as part of the E-Mazing race, a promotional race created by Sun Country Highway. Sun Country’s Joe Squire was following in an electrified support van. Sun Country has created a network of charging stations, and created the race event to promote the ability to travel coast to coast in an electric vehicle. Langley’s Danny Halmo, who crossed the country on an electric scooter last year, joined the trip for a leg through B.C.

Success at a spring talent competition is opening doors for an Aldergrove band.

n up-and-coming Aldergrove band is headlining a huge youth mash up of sorts in Surrey this weekend. The Special Tease is one of four Fraser Valley band performing at The Mirage on Friday, and the groups’ recent attention is being credited – at least in part – to the band took second place in the community’s premiere talent competition this spring. “We have been drastically increasing our fan base lately, since we placed second in Langley Has Talent,” said lead guitarist Nick Waterman, who’s still beaming from that success. “Not bad for an unknown rock ’n’ roll band thrown into a mix of polished singers and dancers. Not only did it allow us to have better exposure, but it was a great growing experience for us because it opened our eyes to the work and time it takes to be true professionals,” he said.

The band used its $1,500 cash prize to hit the studio and cut four demos for an unofficial EP that’s found on SoundCloud. “We are looking for every opportunity to spread the word about our music,” said Waterman, who is joined in the band by fellow Aldergrove residents Wes Masztalar (rhythm guitar and vocals), Cody Nicholls (bass guitar), and Kaeden

McLeod (drums), as well as lead vocalist Trevor Robinson of Fort Langley. The group first started rehearsing together back in August 2011, then graduated to performing in larger venues after McLeod joined the group last September. “We practice as a unit twice a week with small writing sessions sprinkled in with a couple members, as often as we can,”

Special Tease headline in new live venue club The Special Tease is an Aldergrovebased band that will be performing at The Mirage in Surrey this weekend. They’re headlining a show with three other Fraser Valley youth bands.

Waterman explained. “Our long-term goals include recording a full-length album, as well as going on a cross Canada tour. We plan to achieve this by continuing to write better songs and keep playing live shows which we feel is our strength.” They describe themselves as a young, energetic rock ’n’ roll band with a heavy, alternative rock sound influenced by great

bands of the melodic 1960s and ’70s, “while keeping the spirit of riff based rock music intact.” Lately, they’ve ben playing regular shows in Downtown Vancouver venues such as The Roxy and Joe’s Apartment. “The response we’ve been receiving has been nothing but positive,” Waterman said, noting this is their first headlining gig. “We feel quite humbled to be a part of this venue’s history and are extremely excited to be bringing rock ’n’ roll back to a stale scene of rave music and Top 40 hits with three other great bands (Midnight Runners, Killing Vogue, Grace Under Pressure).” The show at The Mirage (15330 102A Ave. in Surrey), is happening on Friday, Sept. 27, starting at 9 p.m. The doors open at 8. Tickets are $10 in advance, or $12 at the door. “This is going to be an extremely special night for us because it will be the first night of live music that Mirage has ever had,” Waterman said. “It is part of a movement to support up-and-coming local bands and bring music fans an alternative to the typical top 40 dance music scene that has been suffocating the industry for years.”

Langley Art Studio Tour

Artists ready for second wave of visitors The Langley Art Studio Tour continues to take visitors into the work spaces of local artists.

by Ronda Payne news@langleyadvance.com

Langley Arts Council Residence Gallery was abuzz during the first weekend of the Art Studio Tour, with a spontaneous jam session by Michelle Drumfoot and Desiree Wallace and Rosemary Wallace. Drawing lessons by Wendy Mould (pictured) and on-site painting by Audrey Bakewell, Gabrielle Grieg, Drena Hambrook, Lana Hart, Connie Wicklund, and Rosemary Wallace drew art-lovers and collectors from as far away as England.

The first weekend was a hit, and there’s still time to take it all in for those who may have missed the start of the fifth annual Langley Art Studio Tour. Organizer, Deborah Strong is wrapping up her last year of heading up the event which celebrates all kinds of artists in and around the Langleys. “It went great,” Strong

said of the steady flow of visitors through artists’ studios. “We did a visitor’s survey. We seem to be getting very positive feedback.” One of the artists on the tour, Carmel Clare, was proud to feature her brand new in-home studio. After being part of the tour in other locations since it began, this was a “dream” to Clare – to feature her work in her own new studio, custom built in her former garage. “It was so nice to see so many people embracing art,” Clare noted. “There’s just so many people that appreciate art.” She added that visitors

4 Gladys Bower and her three daughters took along their fellow traveller, the Langley Advance, on a trip to Hawaii this summer. Gladys “sat on the sand” and caught up on her hometown news while her daughters took to the water. Between articles, she “did sit in the sea, waiting for huge waves to wash over me – mind you, my daughters held on to me, as you can get swept out to sea.”

Willoughby duo share love of ABBA Three Langley musicians are part of a tribute show on Saturday. by Roxanne Hooper

rhooper@langleyadvance.com

A

lyssa Nielsen has been an ABBA fan since she was a young child. She can remember her parents holding house parties in their large Willoughby home back in the 1970s, and fondly recalls hearing S.O.S. drifting down the hall to her room. “I loved it,” said the 43-year-old singer. “And I still do today.” Nielsen plays the character of Agnetha Faltskog, “or the ‘blonde’ ABBA singer as many people like to say,” with a tribute band called Abra Cadabra, which is performing in her hometown of Langley this Saturday, Sept. 28 at Cascades Casino. It’s always extra exciting to perform shows at home, said Nielsen, who’s sharing that stage with fellow Langleyite, Ryan Langevin. While she’s been singing with Abra Cadabra for a decade, Langevin has only been part of the group for the past six and a half years. He stepped in to the role of Benny Andersson – the piano player in the original ABBA, a Swedish super group known for their bubbly lyric songs and flashy costumes. The north Willoughby father of two said he’s always appreciated ABBA’s music, but admitted it wasn’t until he joined the group and began working on the lyrics, melodies, and chord progressions – that he became a devoted fan. Now, in between other gigs, both of these Langleyites are travelling the globe with Abra Cadabra helping audiences of all ages re-live and celebrate the timeless and uplifting ABBA classics.

Abra Cadabra is an ABBA tribute band performing at Langley’s Cascades Casino on Saturday night. The group features two Langley musicians, Alyssa Nielsen (bottom centre) and Ryan Langevin (right glasses). They’re both Willoughby residents. View video & photos with or online

He teaches music to more than 50 students in Langley and New Westminster, and in between those duties performs the lead in a tribute to the music of Billy Joel and Elton John in a show called The Piano Man, as well as his Abra gigs. Likewise, Nielsen fell in love with the limelight as a youngster and rose to some acclaim as a country musician during her teens. Now, she shares her Abra Cadabra duties with her role as a fairytale princess impersonator for children’s parties and events. “I am very grateful to say that I do make my living full time from performing in various capacities,” Nielsen told the Langley Advance. She’s currently embarking on a

new children’s project for which she has written three of eight stories and songs. “I am currently choosing an illustrator and intend to have the work published and to begin performing the material to children and families early next year,” Nielsen explained. In the meantime, this weekend’s show is being held in Cascades Casino’s Summit Theatre starting at 8 p.m. Tickets are available at the casino, by phone at 604-530-2211, or online at checkoutmytickets.com. In addition to Abra Cadabra’s performance, another group called Atari Radio STARZ, an 1980s dance band – is performing Saturday. This band also features a Langley musician, Brendan Maclean.

Questions & Answers

Not all bugs are bad Dear Anne,

“I moved to Vancouver about a year ago. “In the spring, I planted a vegetable garden. When I was pulling up the old lettuce stalks, I noticed a large number of small beetles in the soil. I have also noticed them in my neighbours garden. “Can you recommend something safe to get rid of them?”

I

Sandy Turoldo, via email

t’s unusual to see a large number of beetles congregating in the soil. But ants do. Is it possible these are ants? Ants sometimes nest in soil, especially sandy soil. You could disrupt them by giving the area a very good digging and moving some of the soil elsewhere. Or persuade them to move by pouring very hot water into the nest. You do need to use extreme care to avoid spilling scalding water on your way to the action zone. Children and pets should be kept well away. I wonder if thise beetles have squared-off snouts? If so, they may be weevils. Weevils can harm vegetables. They are very slow, nocturnal movers, and can easily be hand-picked if trapped under moist sheets of newspaper and uncovered in daytime. The organic treatment for weevils is to order predatory nematodes in July from a garden centre. Nematodes are watered into the soil. Instructions come with the kit. But if they really are beetles, it might be useful to ask yourself if those bugs are doing harm. Many soil insects are beneficial. Have you noticed damage on your lettuces that could be attributed to the

beetles? If all they touched were the old lettuce stalks, perhaps they were just scavenging. Has your neighbour complained to you about the beetles damaging anything in her/his garden? If there’s no evidence the beetles are doing damage, it’s a lot of extra work for little reward to try to eradicate them. Also, since they’re already in your neighbour’s yard anyway, those little beasties are likely to travel under the fence and re-occupy your soil. Dear Anne,

Dear Anne,

“I have some Scarlet Emperor runner beans that ended up not getting picked. Can I plant them next year? “If so, what would I have to do with them over the winter?”

Jimmyymac, via email

L

ots of gardeners save bean seed. Just wait until the pods are very dry. It’s best if the pods can dry out on the plant. Then pick them and bring them inside, shell the beans, and spread them out on a flat surface (plate, tray, etc.). The empty pods can be composted or sent to green waste.

When the beans are very, very dry, put them in an airtight jar or tin and put them in the refrigerator over the winter. The refrigerator isn’t essential, but they keep better there, because the temperature is more stable than it is in the house. It’s very important the beans are completely dry, because if they’re the least bit moist, they can get fungus infection that rots them. So take your time before packaging them up.

Bob Groeneveld/Langley Advance

Scarlet runner beans climb poles to offer bounty in relatively little space. The pretty red flowers brighten the garden and attract hummingbirds. The plentiful and delicious beans are easily dried and stored for planting next spring, to begin the cycle.

New album a departure for Langley band Derrival An indie-rock band of five is making connections. by Ronda Payne

news@langleyadvance.com

Clearly, the band Derrival is getting a solid following. In the short interview three members of the group had with the Langley Advance at a busy coffee shop, two individuals who recognized the band mates interrupted to say hello. Not surprising, since the members have seen some great opportunities come their way recently. Not the least of which is the launch of their latest album, Youth Captured. The new seven song album was released on Sept. 1 to iTunes, Bandcamp, and most other digital retailers. Plus, CDs will be sold at the group’s live performances. Part of the excitement of this album is how it came to be. All original material, the songs were recorded in a variety of places. “It’s definitely a departure [from our previous album],” said Daniel Kozlowski, drums and

back-up vocals with the band. “It’s far more professional,” agreed Shane Stephenson, keyboards and back-up vocals. “It’s a segmented project with some songs recorded in different locations.” It was because of the Youthink contest that led to the varying recording spots. Four were done with Joshua Field who heard Derrival and liked their sound. “We were part of a Nimbus recording,” said Glen Jackson, lead guitar and back-up vocals. “There were days we went to school all day then went to record from 9 p.m. to 9 a.m. then went to school the next day.” Field took the band on as his project at the Numbus School of Recording Arts. The band members are young. The 18- to 20-yearolds were able to handle the lack of sleep from a busy school and recording schedule mostly because of the opportunity. “It gave us the drive to do better,” Jackson said. “I think it helped us to win Squamish.” Jackson means the Squamish Valley Music

Festival in 2013. Not only did the band members get to hang with some of their icons like Queens of the Stone Age and Yukon Blonde, but they also got to play, and to win. “We won it out of 60 bands,” Jackson said. The contest was voted on by peers and those in the music industry. A real vote of confidence for the

direction Derrival is heading in. “It was one of the best days of our lives,” Kozlowski added. “The band is like a family,” Jackson noted. “We act as a family and it kind of goes beyond the art and the music,” Kozlowski said. Currently the band is managing its own future, with positive connections

within the industry. Both Jackson and Kozlowski are in post-secondary programs which directly help the promotion and activity of the band. A tour is scheduled to Calgary through the Kootenays. See Derrival live as they open for Vancouver indie pop band Hey Ocean! on Nov. 2 at the Momentum Youth Arts Festival at the

Massey Theatre in New Westminster. “A lot of people in a generation past us will comment on whether we had luck with a record label,” Kozlowski said. “It’s no longer as important with the ability for individuals to have more power [over publishing music and reaching their audience] than they ever had.”

Singing sisters host concert to fund Nashville trip Two Brookswood grads return to their alma mater for a fundraising show aimed at getting them to Tennessee in December. by Roxanne Hooper

t will be the first time that sisters Robyn and Ryleigh Gillespie have ever travelled to Nashville, and the pair of country singers are asking fellow Langleyites for a little help to make their inaugural trip possible. “We’re hoping people will come out for a night of fun and entertainment, and support a couple of small town girls who share one big dream,” said Robyn, the eldest sibling at age 21. The Brookswood Secondary grads, simply known as Robyn & Ryleigh, are hosting a fundraising concert at their alma mater next Tuesday evening. “Brookswood has an amazing theatre. They put on incredible musicals every year on that stage,” said Ryleigh, who turns 19 the day of the fundraiser. “We also thought what a perfect place to put on a show because it’s right in the centre of our community, and where we started this whole thing,” Robyn added. The siblings finished their first album this summer and on the heels of its release are organizing a one-week trip to Nashville in December. The trip is the natural next step, said Ryleigh, who explained that their summer was spent promoting the new album and playing festivals and shows throughout the Lower Mainland, as well as in Oregon and Washington State.

How do you win?

• Like us on the Langley Advance Facebook site, find the posting about Robyn & Ryleigh, tell us why you want to attend this show and you’re automatically entered to win. Preference is given to Langley residents. Postings must be received prior to 10 a.m. on Monday, Sept. 30, and the winner will be announced on the Facebook page later that afternoon. No staff or family of the Langley Advance or Glacier Media are eligible. This contest is restricted to online participants, 19 years or older only.

“It was lot of fun to do a little travelling together,” said the siblings, who are even more psyched about taking their next joint excursion – this time to Tennessee. “We can’t wait,” Ryleigh said. “Our trip this time is planned for a week. We wish it could be longer, but this will be a great start.” She explained that travelling to Nashville with their manager, they’ve arranged to meet with a number of industry movers-and-shakers, plan to do some co-writing, and hope to see some sights – including a mandatory visit to the coun-

try music landmark, the Grand Ole Opry. To finance that trip, the girls are hosting a fundraising concert called On The Road to Nashville, which will see Ryleigh and Robyn performing, along with musicians they’ve “met along the way and are sooo very talented,” Robyn said. They’re going to be joined on the Brookswood theatre stage by Brad Darrid, Cory Hawthorne, David Willis, and the band called Smith and Jones. “We are just wanting to put on an entertaining, fun-filled show that might help us take a bite out of the cost of travelling to Nashville… The more money we make, the easier it will be for us to get there,” said Ryleigh, explaining this is the first big show they’ve organized themselves. “It’s been lots of fun so far,” she added. “We are putting on a show because we

love to perform,” interjected Robyn. “We just hope that people know how much it means to us and how much it helps when they buy a ticket and come to our shows. We decided that this time, we would use ticket sales to help fund our trip to Nashville. It’s been our dream for a long time, and we’re finally doing it.” Tickets are $10 and on sale in advance at the school office, or through their website at www.robynandryleigh.com. While there may still be tickets available at the door the night of the show, Robyn said they are expected a sellout show. They’ll keep fans updated on their Facebook page in the days leading up to the Oct. 1 show. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., with the show from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Brookswood Secondary theatre at 20902 37A Ave.

Chelsea McMullan teamed up with Rae Spoon, a transgender musician on the film My Prairie Home.

A woman raised in Brookswood has a feature-length film premiering at the Vancouver International Film Festival. Showings of My Prairie Home are set for Sept. 29 and Oct. 1. Chelsea McMullan’s musical-documentary features transgender Canadian singer/songwriter Rae Spoon, who was raised in an evangelical Christian home. The film blends stunning images of the Canadian Prairies and imaginative interpretations of selections from Spoon’s songbook. It’s not the first time McMullan has worked with Spoon. While working on a film, she was looking for country-type music but with a twist, and was introduced to Spoon’s work. Prairie is McMullan’s third project for the National Film Board. This playful, meditative and at times melancholic tale of Spoon’s queer and musical coming of age unfolds in interviews and in songs, in live performance and in fanciful music sequences. The project prompted McMullan to think and rethink about gender identity issues. “Through making the film, and through my interactions with people about the film, I realized that gender is one of the scariest things in the world for people,” said McMullan. “People are so scared of gender, and the binary, and keeping it intact. I know my perception of gender has changed in such an extreme way. It’s more interesting to let the constructs fall away and be who you feel like being, and not try to fit into any category.” “Definitely, right from the beginning, I thought of the film as a documen-

tary-musical. That was the initial idea. Rae’s story needs to be told through [Spoon’s] music. What makes the most sense in terms of visually representing that?” McMullan said. Film has become a way for McMullan to explore her world, and in the process, it’s helped her land some prestigious gigs and accolades. McMullan is a Genienominated filmmaker and artist whose films and

YOUR HEALTH President’s own story: 15 years ago I started to have arthritis, prostate, kidney, snoring and sleep apnea problems, which were all helped quickly with natural health products. I made it my life’s purpose to help others. Nick A. Jerch

ARTHRITIS

NPN 80042283 Helps to relieve joint pain associated with osteoarthritis.

Truthful actual experiences from real people:

! For 40 years I had injections and drugs and finally Bell Shark Cartilage #1 spared me the endless torture I suffered day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON !My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA!I tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON!For 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing less than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QC !I suffered for years with sciatica. I tried everything and finally after taking a specially processed shark cartilage I was pain free in 2 weeks. After this experience I realised I could help many of those 5 million Canadian that suffer every day and night and I started to sell this same type of shark cartilage and helped hundreds of thousands of men and women to have less pain #1 or no pain at all. Nick A. Jerch, President of Bell Lifestyle Products. !Many people on our website write: “Can walk again for hours”;”Can climb stairs without hanging on to railing”;”First time in 15 years can sleep at night”…hundreds of testimonials all with full names and towns. Shark bones/cartilage was a previously thrown away by-product of the food industry. No sharks are caught for their cartilage. Don’t let any activist confuse you.

I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH ! Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could #23 not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS ! For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS !It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON.

Brian Parkinson relaxed at the Willoughby Wired Monk recently. The 70-year-old continues to compete in triathlons across B.C.

Triathletics

Triathlete runs seventh at 70

A 70-year-old Langley businessman completed his seventh triathlon of 2013 earlier this month. by Troy Landreville

sports@langleyadvance.com

Brian Parkinson has been eligible for the seniors’ discount for five years now. But at a very active 70, the longtime Langley businessman and Rotarian has been spending much of his free time testing his mettle on B.C. roads and lakes. Parkinson is a triathlete and ironman competitor who’s been buzzing around the B.C. race circuit. Most recently, he and several other Langley athletes competed in the sprint distance race at the Sept. 8 Cultus Lake Triathlon. The Cultus Lake race was the seventh Parkinson has taken part during the 2013 race season. He competed in six triathlons the previous year. Parkinson has helping hands to prepare him for the rigours of triathlon racing, that involves swimming, cycling, and running in one day. “For me, it’s a lot of massage therapy, chiropractic work, kinesiology,” said Parkinson, who said the advice of local doctor Richard Blackmore has been key to his health and success. “He tells me I’m his template,” Parkinson said, of Blackmore. “I’m where he’s going to be in 15 years.” Two years ago, Blackmore assisted Parkinson in finding a cardiologist after Parkinson found out he had atrial fibrillation (irregular heart rhythm). “She [the cardiologist] reset my heart rate in November of 2011 and I’ve been fine since,” Parkinson said. Parkinson wasn’t always this healthy.

“My first-ever girlfriend told me I looked like a penguin,” Parkinson said. “She was absolutely correct.” Eating right and exercising is now a way of life for the south Langley resident. “I’m having fun with life,” he said. “Once you get fit, the options are endless. I’ve done some distance racing, the Grouse Grind race.” About eight years ago, Parkinson climbed Mount Kilimanjaro in

Tanzania, Africa. “Believe it or not, I did the Gran Fondo to Whistler and that was way harder, to me, physically. It took way more out of me. Kilimanjaro was six days, and you lose weight, simply because you’re just walking,” shared Parkinson, who stressed that intensity “creates fitness.” “My training now is structured,” he said. “A lot of it contains shorter runs, shorter bikes, but intense.”

Langley athletes flock to Cultus The Cultus Lake triathlon was made up of separate events. The Olympic distance was a 1,500metre swim, 40-kilometre bike ride, and 10 km run; the sprint distance consisted of a 750m swim, 20 km bike ride, and 5 km run. Parkinson finished first out of two competitors in the male 70-plus division. He finished the swim in 14:53, bike ride in 38:49, and run in 25:25. Langley athletes at the Cultus Lake event included Pat Murphy (third out of seven athletes in M50-54), Eytan Moudahi (11th in M25-29), Jeffrey Price (12th in M25-29), Vince Jarvis (third out of eight competitors in M45-49), and Daniel Lowes (13th in M40-44). At the start of the month, Parkinson competed in the Vancouver Triathlon at Stanley Park on Labour Day. The only competitor in the 65-plus division, he completed the sprint race in 1:23.12 with times of 12:37 in the 750 m swim, 39:45 in the 18.8 km bike ride, and 26:52 in the five km run. Joining him at the event was fellow Langleyite Hillary Hennessy and Russell Toet. Hennessy, who competed in the sprint race in the female 40-45 division, completed the swim in 15:55, the bike in 53:38 and the run in

31:03. Toet, in the male 25-29 division, had a strong showing in the Olympic race. He completed the 1.5 km swim in 32:09, the 37.6 km bike ride in 1:15.57, and the 10 km run in 51:35. On Aug. 18 at the Pushor Mitchell Apple Triathlon in Kelowna, Parkinson competed in the sprint race and placed first out of two competitors in the 70-74 division. He finished the 750 m swim in 17:15, the 20 km bike ride in 39:24 and the 5 km run in 25:23. Langley had lots of representation at the Kelowna race, especially in the sprint portion. Catherine Overgaard, in female 30-34: 16 out of 35 racers in her division. Guy Cloutier (M45-49): 20th. Rod Castillo (M40-44): 15th. Carol Sliziak (F50-54): 13th. A pair of Langley residents finished the Olympic race at the Apple Tri. Steve Harder raced to 11th spot among the 36 male athletes in the male 40-44 division. He completed the 1.5 km swim in 32:36, 40 km bike in 1:07.47, and 10 km run in 46:46. Bill Converse (M50-54) ended up 19th out of 36 competitors in his division. He did the swim in 35:37, bike ride in 1:15.41, and run in 50:25.

A sensational start helped power North Langley’s junior bantams to a shutout victory over Chilliwack.

These are trying times for the Trinity Western University men’s soccer team. The Spartans fell 4-2 to the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades in Canada West men’s soccer action Sunday at Bateman Park in Abbotsford. The loss drops the Spartans to 1-5, while the win evens the Cascades’ record to 3-3.

ROUND 2

Currently, due to injury, the Spartans are short 11 players, including seven starters, from the squad that opened training camp in August. “It is a difficult situation for everyone, the guys are doing their best to move the program forward, but it is a lot to ask. It is not that guys don’t want to play, but they are put in situations that are difficult for them,” TWU head coach Pat Rohl said. “We

won’t quit and we remain focused on our task to be the best team that we can be given our circumstances. It is difficult to ask more, but will continue to do so. We have to hold our head up and play in a way that is respectful of our program and school. We will keep our focus forward and continue to work through and look for solutions.” • More online at www.langleyadvance.com

Rivermen bolster blueline The Langley Rivermen now have a highly touted defenceman in their fold. Last week, the junior A hockey team acquired defensemen Charlie Pelnik from the Fargo Force of the USHL, for future considerations. Langley head coach and general manager Bobby Henderson believes the 6’4” blueliner will make the Rivermen’s back end even more solid, as Pelnik will bring size, skill and grit to his new team. The Cary, North Carolina native has already committed to playing hockey at University of North Dakota starting in 2015/16. He received a scholarship to NCAA powerhouse school at 15, as he will be looking to fine tune his skills with the Rivermen for the next two seasons before making the jump to the NCAA. Pelnik only appeared in 24 regular season games for the Fargo Force (USHL) during the 2012/13 season as it turned out to be a year filled with injuries. But his most recent injury-plagued season is just a small blip on the already impressive resume for Pelnik, as Henderson thinks he’ll have no problem

are these deals for real or am I dreaming...

getting his game back to where it should be, “Although last season was disappointing for Charlie with the various injuries, he is coming to town healthy and in shape,” Henderson said. “We don’t expect him to take long to have his game up to speed.” In 2011/12 Pelnik played for the Shattuck-St Mary’s under-16 team, recording 11 points in 44 games. He helped lead the team to the USA Hockey midget minor national tournament. The young defencemen has been on USA Hockey’s radar for a number of years now, as he was ranked 13th amongst defensemen at the USA Hockey’s Select 16 Development Camp back in 2011. “Fans are in for a bit of a treat to see a player as highly touted as Charlie,” Henderson said. According to the Rivermen, Pelnik has long been touted as one of North America’s top prospects and looks to reestablish himself on this list with a long, healthy season with the local squad.
