Boy off to Bon Jovi

Kaden Artemenko’s mom Stevie knew Bon Jovi was coming to Vancouver’s Rogers Arena Wednesday night, but she didn’t mention it to six-year-old Kaden, knowing her family can’t afford the tickets. But thanks to an outpouring of support yesterday from Vancouver Province readers, Kaden’s dream of seeing his rock hero in concert is about to come true. Life has been an uphill battle for Kaden, who was born premature at 25 weeks. In Kaden’s world, the only person who can rival Bon Jovi is Spider-Man — and that’s just a maybe. • More online

Trucking firm rebuilds after fire The camaraderie of employees helped a Langley firm get on its feet after a major fire. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A year after the fire that almost destroyed a Langley trucking firm, the employees are focussed on the bright side. Things have been back to normal for a long time at the Ken Johnson Trucking firm, based in the Port Kells industrial area along the Langley-Surrey border near Walnut Grove. On Oct. 2, 2012, things were far from normal as a vast cloud of black smoke rose above the garages. Ken Johnson Trucking uses

long-haul tanker trucks, and on that Tuesday last year, one of the tankers exploded. One worker was injured and rushed to hospital, and firefighters converged on the area to prevent the fire from spreading further. The dramatic scene saw several more explosions, thought to be tires or acetylene tanks, while firefighters set up their gear. Power was knocked out to the surrounding neighbourhood, and police and firefighters evacuated an area half a mile wide. However, the fire could have been much worse, and was knocked down before it destroyed the trucking firm’s offices. The employees came together and rallied, neighbouring businesses helped out, and the company was only closed for a couple of days after the fire.

ATV, gas pumps snatched from Langley workshop A thief trying to steal gas instead made off with other items.

This ATV was recently stolen in North Langley. Children in the photo have been blacked out for privacy reasons.

by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A thief who broke into a Langley workshop made off with two gas pumps and a Polaris Razor ATV. The thief broke in sometime on Sept. 29, apparently trying to steal fuel from the

property in the 24300 block of 70th Avenue, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the

Langley RCMP. The thieves found they couldn’t get any gas as the owner of the property had turned off the power to the pumps. Instead, the thieves took two gas pumps worth $1,000, and a Polaris Razor, worth about $25,000 when new. Police are asking that anyone who has seen this vehicle contact the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or CrimeStoppers at 1-800222-8477 (TIPS). Calls to CrimeStoppers are anonymous.

Langley City Fire Rescue kicks off Fire Prevention Week activities with a stop at the PriceSmart Foods Sunday. From 1:30-3:30 p.m., or while quantities last, Langley City firefighters will be at the store on Fraser Highway giving away reusable shopping bags. As well, they will be bagging customers’ groceries. The Oct. 6 activities are the first event for Fire Prevention Week which is Oct. 6-12. The annual fire hall open house is slated for Oct. 10. Meet the firefighters, tour the fire hall, try on some gear, watch the firefighters conduct live fire demonstrations and learn important fire safety tips. There will also be food, refreshments and door prizes. The activities run 6:308:30 p.m. and organizers suggest people bring their cameras.

Langley Advance files

Youngsters such as Taran Connell got to use the equipment at last year’s Langley City firehall open house, helped by firefighter Phil Sikma. The fire hall open house attracts many families and residents wanting to find out more about the local department and fire safety issues. Langley City Fire Rescue Service is joining forces with the National Fire Prevention Association (NFPA) and thousands of other fire departments across North America to commemorate Fire Prevention Week which has the theme Prevent Kitchen Fires. “It’s my hope that people reading this article won’t have to learn the hard way,” said Capt.

Dave Saunders, Langley City’s fire prevention officer. “If I could give just one fire warning, I’d say ‘don’t leave cooking unattended’.” School kids in Langley City will get to meet local firefighters when they visit the schools during October. Participating schools will be entered into a draw for a $200 gift certificate for reading materials courtesy of the Downtown Langley Business Association. And the ever popular Win a Ride to School in a Fire Truck contest will also take place at this time.

Township council

Water system passes by narrowest margin

A majority of council said an even split among residents is enough to approve a water main. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A 50-50 split among residents means that a new water project will go ahead near D.W. Poppy Secondary. The local area service project is one of dozens that are being proposed or planned through Langley as municipal water pipes are extended through the middle of rural and suburban Langley. This project is centred along 52nd Avenue from 237th to 240th Streets and will affect 40 properties, mostly homes, acreages, and D.W. Poppy. Residents both in favour of and opposed to the plan made their case to the Township council Sept. 30

after the very close vote. Shelley and Ray Murphy were particularly upset because letters from the Township said that approval required more than half of residents to be in favour. Suddenly, after exactly 20 properties voted yes and 20 no, they were told it was to go ahead anyway. “That’s not fair, that’s not what we were told,” said Shelley Murphy. The Murphys are worried about the costs of the system, which they say will mean almost $23,000 for them. The cost is to be spread out over 20 years and paid through a bill with their annual property taxes. That cost is just for the water pipe that will run near their house; actually connecting their home

to the service would cost more. It’s too much money for their neighbour, Michael Parker. “I’m going to have to move if this goes through,” he said. He lives in his family

“It’s unfortunate the wording is like that.” Jack Froese

home and has lived there for more than 40 years, he told the council. Half the residents in the area voted in favour. “It’s only a sign of progress,” said Ken Kostiuk. He said that since he moved to the area, he’s been worried about minerals in the water and has been drinking bottled

water. With a municipal water system, he won’t have to rely on well water and will continue to be able to run his taps and flush his toilets even when the power fails. Rural residents on wells lose water pressure

“Have we created a liability? And I think we have.” Kim Richter

when their electricitydependent pumps shut down. Bob Sangha, who has lived in the neighbourhood for 18 years, said he is in favour of the project, but suggested there could be a compromise for those who don’t want the project, to make the costs easier on them. Councillors spent some

time discussing the fact that their own Township staff’s letters to residents were unclear about how many people were needed to pass the measure. “If approved by more than 50 per cent of the property owners…” reads one letter, sent April 25. “It’s unfortunate the wording is like that,” said Mayor Jack Froese. However, he said the Community Charter regulations are clear. If exactly half of the residents, comprising half of the assessed land values in the area voted in favour, that is enough for the measure to pass. “I actually think we have to have a lawyer look at it,” said Councillor Kim Richter. “Have we created a liability? And I think we

have,” she said. Not voting either way is counted as a no-vote for the purposes of local polls such as this one. Coun. Bob Long was curious about the school district’s involvement in the project. According to Langley School District spokesperson Ken Hoff, the district’s costs will be $75,000 for its share of the water project. Hoff said the district expects to save money on well maintenance and fire protection work in the long run. Ultimately, the council approved the project in a seven to two vote, with Richter and Coun. Michelle Sparrow opposed. Local area servicing votes are frequently contentious because every resident in the area is billed for the water or sewer extension if it passes. If the council is ever deadlocked on an issue and ties on a vote, the vote fails.

One man has now been sentenced for possession of stolen property and identity theft, among other charges, following the May raid. Members of the Surrey RCMP community response unit, with a search warrant, entered a home in the 18000 block of 96th Avenue this spring. Hundreds of stolen and fake cards were seized.

Also found were gift cards, SIN cards, BCID cards, drivers licenses, Care Cards, birth certificates, and Canadian passports. Stolen mail, cheques, and documents with personal identification and information were also found. The house was set up as an identity theft and fake credit card making factory, said Surrey RCMP. Several computers, a laser printer, and an embosser were all seized as part of the “factory.” Timothy Bradley Moisan was arrested and held in custody for four months, and he pleaded guilty on Sept. 13 to six offences, including three counts of possession of stolen property, possession of instruments to forge or falsify credit cards, identity theft, and dealing with identity documents without a lawful excuse.

Moisan was given a two year conditional sentence order and two months of probation to follow that. He is also on a number of other conditions intended to keep the public safe. The Surrey RCMP worked with the Langley Mounties, the Federal Serious and Organized Crime unit, and the Integrated Counterfeit Enforcement Team on the investigation. “Understanding the impact that identity theft and frauds can have on their victims, the successful conclusion of this investigation is extremely rewarding,” said Staff Sgt. Marty Blais, District Commander for Cloverdale/Port Kells. “A lot of different sections used their expertise on this case, and working together will serve us well for future similar investigations.”

Luxury market

Market focuses on antiques What’s in

The new Mercedes Benz dealership held its official grand opening on the Langley Bypass on Saturday, Sept. 28. With more than 400 in attendance, the event went off “swimmingly,” complete with music from the Max Zipursky jazz trio, a welcome by the Kwantlen First Nations, and talks by celebrity automotive experts such as Zack Spencer. Patrick Almeida, left, the general sales manager, has been showing the cars to potential customers since earlier in the month. “Mercedes-Benz appeals to a broad demographic now,” said Dilawri Group marketing manager Tanis Sullivan (right). The dealership is part of a cluster of luxury auto dealers springing up around the Bypass and Glover Road.

Provided the price point is cheap to fair, it sounds like I’m going to be beating off my coworker Heather for some antique deals being offered in Fort Langley on Thanksgiving – Monday, Oct. 14. Elaine Chernoff tells me of a monthly “store” – sounds more like a retail “event” to me, but let’s not get caught up on semantics – that she has been volunteering with for a few months. The first three Monday Heritage Markets were held in the village, at the community hall. For the next event, which runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on the holiday Monday, it’s being held in the hall of the St. Andrew’s United Church at 9025 Glover Rd. in Fort Langley “It’s finally evolving in what I feel is in true spirit of community development and partnership,” Chernoff said. “About 15 to 20 individuals sell their antiques and collectables, most are just downsizing, some are your typical ‘dealers’ but all are helping each other.” This months event is also a fundraiser for the church, with receiving all snack bar proceeds. See you there.

Dignitaries talk development

Also on the business front, I’m told the Urban Developers Institute (UDI) is hosting the second annual mayors forum next Thursday, Oct. 10 at the Langley Events Centre. Eight Lower Mainland mayors will be sharing what they’re doing to encourage investment and development, and create jobs in their communities.

The International Federation of Business and Professional Women has developed a new club in Langley, and is inviting women to attend the opening night dinner and reception on Wednesday, Oct. 9. The club kickoff is being held in the meeting room at Andreas Restaurant, 20227 56th Ave., starting at 6 p.m., with Langley’s own Mary Reeves as the evening’s guest speaker. Reeves served as Abbotsford’s first female mayor in 2005 and now works as executive director for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Langley. The cost is $20 per person, including dinner.

Thanksgiving food drive

Volunteers step up to feed hungry A total of 14,400 pounds of food was collected for the Langley Food Bank. The BC Thanksgiving Food Drive (BCTFD) held Sept. 21 collected an estimated 402,000 pounds of food for 50 local food banks throughout the province. “It was great to see how the residents of our communities came forward to support our project,” BCTFD executive director Andrew Rolfson said. “The success can be credited to communities selflessly working together donating time, talent, and

means to meet the needs of others – for this, we are truly thankful.” In Langley, the BCTFD event included more than 260 volunteers providing more than 775 hours of service to the community. They were able to visit several hundred homes and collected more than 14,400 pounds of non-perishable food for the Langley Food Bank. Langley Food Bank executive director George Vandergugten is excited by the amount of food which will go to help clients. “We appreciate receiving muchneeded contributions from the community and the support of every individual involved,” he said. “It’s

essential to our work of helping the large number of people who rely on us to meet their basic needs.” The local BCTFD event in Langley was sponsored by Meridian Meats and Leavitt Machinery.

About the BCTFD

The BC Thanksgiving Food Drive is a non-denominational project and is open to all interested individuals, community groups, religious organizations, businesses or others who wish to join the effort in helping attend to the needs of the hungry in this area.

No gains, and not cooperative

We’ve already heard enough about the so-called cooperative gains mandate to last a lifetime, but we’re going to hear a lot more of that phrase. Somewhere, tucked into an office in the Legislature or in a BC Liberal back room, is the architect of that phrase. This person is one of the masters of Orwellian doublethink. Cooperative gains is what the government calls its policy of giving public sector workers raises, without actually giving them any more money. How does that work, you ask? Email with We’re not sure. Apparently, the Liberals believe that contracts like the ones they just signed with the CUPE school support staff will be magically filled thanks to the pots of leprechaun gold that all school districts have hidden under the board office foundations. In reality, it will mean finding money by cutting something else in the short term, and in the long term, likely by reducing the number of people on the support staff payroll. Which will, of course, have no impact on schools being cleaned, blocked pipes being cleared, or bad wiring being fixed. This seems to be part of the belief by many governments, not just the provincial folks, that there is always waste, and that cutting of this waste can and must go on indefinitely. Now, either this is true, and the government will eventually be two guys, one of whom will fire the other, or it isn’t. If it isn’t, then eventually everything that’s not vitally necessary will have been cut already. Considering that the Liberals have been in power for more than a dozen years, you’d think they’d have finished this process by now. So to sum up: cooperative gains involve no cooperation, and no one gains any extra resources from Victoria. But someone had fun coming up with the name. – M.C.

Bug sting shortens vacation Time fudge opportunity for ticket

Dear Editor, About 10 years ago I introduced a large dog to a couple at the Langley Animal Shelter. It was love at first sight, and that love grows daily. The dog’s name is Ozzie, and he is the most loving, gentle, and amusing pet I’ve ever encountered. His owners utterly adore him, and he reciprocates in kind. His owners took him on a trip up north in their motorhome, with his little pal Happy, an aptly named Jack Russell terrier. To their horror, Ozzie limped back to their camping location in agony, and was unable to put any pressure on his paw. They required help in placing their pet in the camper, as he whimpered pitifully when any pressure was exerted on his foot.

It took them two and a half hours to drive to Williams Lake to obtain the services of to the a veterinarian. She X-rayed the leg and found a sliver of bone missing in his leg, but that didn’t explain the agony Ozzie was in. After a phone call to their vet in Langley, they high-tailed it home to seek his help. The local examination couldn’t define a diagnosis, but his many years of practise clued him in to the trouble. Ozzie, it seems, had been stung by a wasp, and a topical lotion soon eased the pain. My friends’ expected additional two weeks holiday was forfeited, but as owner Wendy said, “Ozzie’s welfare comes first.” Mike Harvey, Langley

Smart Meters

Lies make inevitable unacceptable

Dear Editor, I am being blackmailed by BC Hydro. I do not wish to have a Smart Meter, not for any health concern, but simply because once installed, it will eventually be used by BC Hydro to charge me more at peak usage. Their response to such accusation by me is, “At this time there are no plans to… blah, blah, blah…” which, translated, means they intend to do so. My options are: prior to Dec. 1, a free installation of a Smart Meter; or be penalized $35 per month for my existing one. Apparently, BC Hydro is dispensing with meter readers. Redundancy again triumphs over moral conscience. If my old meter breaks or the accuracy seal expires, BC Hydro will provide a replacement as long as existing stocks last. Is that a “no longer available” threat?

My existing meter has been trouble-free for more than 40 years, but with projected increases in BC Hydro rates of 26 per cent by 2014 and an annual fee of $420 to read my meter (once a free service and somebody’s job), as I am an old-age pensioner on a fixed income, I guess they win. As a man of principle, if BC Hydro had not lied to me and had simply stated that, eventually, Smart Meters will be used for peak period billing, I would have accepted, albeit reluctantly. Big business bullying, especially by monopolies and more so by government monopolies, is morally corrupt, and we, as pawns, are sacrificed for the profit margin. A Smart Meter it is then! The elastic band of the proletariat is stretched a little more. It will, of course, one day snap. Martin Allen, Langley

Dear Editor, Visiting Langley City with my elderly mother, I parked my vehicle on the oneway stretch of Fraser Highway, saw the two-hour parking limit, looked at my watch – 12:30 precisely – and made a mental note of being good until 2:30 p.m. We went for lunch and a bit of shopping afterwards, returning to the vehicle at 2:15 p.m. There was a parking ticket on my windshield, indicating a violation for overtime parking. The ticket was issued at 1:30 p.m. If I had gone overtime, that meant I would have had to have parked my vehicle before 11:30 a.m., while I was shopping in Walnut Grove – and I had a store receipt to prove it. So off I went to City Hall and the bylaws desk. Finding no one there at 2:20 p.m. (still within my two-hour limit, I might add), I was told to fill in a sheet declaring why I was contesting the ticket.

I was contacted the next morning and told that she had reviewed the ticket issuer’s photographs of the blue chalk on my wheel and of my vehicle. She asked me for my story of the events, and then said that she would take me at my “word” and would nullify the ticket. Now it gets interesting. Shortly afterward, I was talking with a friend who is a resident of Langley, and she informed me that the City had contracted out the “parking” and that she had already heard of a few similar incidences in which the time had been “fudged,” thus creating a fictitious opportunity for a ticket. Langley City is perfectly within its rights to contract out any of its services, but to not follow up evidence of “fudging” is shameful, potentially subjecting its citizens – and tourists – to dishonest practices. That is not a good business practice. Rick Albert, Kamloops

Act of kindness

Eatery bill paid with ‘nice’ request Dear Editor, Recently my husband and I went to the Old Spaghetti Factory for dinner. Much to our surprise, at the end of our meal, our server mentioned that another person had paid our bill. The gentleman did not leave his name and did not wish to be acknowledged. Follow

The only request he made (he gave the server the message) was that my husband and I are to “do something nice for someone else.” That kind sir can rest assured both of us will pay his kindness forward tenfold. We both are most thankful, and are taking his

request to heart. It will give us great pleasure to share our special story and encourage others to “pay it forward.” The story is worth sharing, and I do hope that the kind person reads it. Tanya Green, via email

A tasty part of local heritage

Heritage Apple Day will bring back the flavour of the pioneer days at Derby Reach Regional Park. by Matthew Claxton

S

amples of crisp, heritage apples, live entertainment, and talks on how to care for the trees are expected to draw hundreds of people to this Saturday’s Heritage Apple Day in Derby Reach Regional Park. A lot has changed since the first Apple Day was held in 2006, said Sharon Meneely, one of the organizers of the annual Langley celebration. The first day mostly consisted of a group of volunteers from the Derby Reach Park Association, and park staff, clearing Scotch broom out of a field in Derby, and working to uncover some of the community’s oldest apple trees. “All the apple trees were completely covered in brambles,” Meneely said. There was, however, an apple tasting, a tradition that has lasted through every single celebration. The goal of that first celebration was to get people to realize that there was a living agricultural heritage in Langley, and that it needed to be saved. The Derby Reach Regional Park includes the site of the original Fort Langley trading post, and later was the site of several early pioneer homesteads. Most of those farms had apple orchards, or at least a few trees for the use of the families. A handful of the trees survived into the modern era, but many of them were on their last legs. Now Derby Reach hosts a new small orchard created from grafted cuttings taken from the heritage trees, and

Fundraising with food

A first for the community, A Taste of Langley City will have guests walk to different downtown restaurants. by Ronda Payne

T

he Rotary Club of Langley Sunrise knows a good idea when they see it. An idea “borrowed” from White Rock’s Semiahmoo Rotary Club will invite guests to take in four downtown Langley restaurants in a walking tour to support Langley Lodge on Monday evening. Event organizer Tom Louie noted that the ticket price is quite affordable for the new fundraiser named A Taste of Langley City. “We recognized that this idea could be imported to Langley [from the annual White Rock Rotary event],” Louie noted. “A $35 dinner ticket is excellent value.” Running on a “dinner circuit” format, guests will be toured along the streets by guides with Rotary and the Langley Care Foundation (part of the Langley Lodge). Rotarian Midori Turner explained why the event supports the lodge. “We are fortunate to have a facility like Langley Lodge in the community. It’s heart-warming that local restaurants have agreed to help out,” she said. At each stop, patrons will sample gourmet food from the participating restaurants: Ban Chok Dee, Choo Choos, Old Yale Bistro, and Viva Mexico. Guests will tour one establishment and continue on to the next to taste the dishes from each restaurant. The dinner circuit starts at 6 p.m. “We are excited to be working with the Rotary Club of Langley Sunrise on this event,” said Terry Metcalfe, Langley Care Foundation’s president. “They are a great supporter of our charity and continue to demonstrate their commitment to Langley’s elderly. This is going to be fun.” Tickets for A Taste of Langley City must be purchased in advance from Tom Louie at 604-807-5785 or tom_louie@sd34.bc.ca, Midori Turner at 604-323-6650 or langley@pakmailcanada.com, Patrick Matiowski at 604532-4200 ext.4116.

Langley’s own Mary Renvall is producer of Surrey Little Theatre’s current comedy, The Foursome, about a quartet of college buddies who reunite. In her role, Renvall’s helped with costume design, lighting, sound, and most fun and challenging of all, set design – which she’s also doing for Langley Players’ upcoming show, That Darn Plot.

Set queen goes cartoonish by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

S

haring a funny bone with her director made Mary Renvall the obvious candidate to take on the role as producer of Surrey Little Theatre’s latest comedy The Foursome. The Walnut Grove thespian first saw this “hilarious” show by playwright Norm Foster, back in 2006, and said it was both her admiration for director Pat McDermott’s work and the play’s storyline that prompted her to volunteer for this latest undertaking. There’s something about the play, which opens tonight (Thursday, Oct. 3) that was appealing, said Renvall, who’s been involved in a few Surrey productions but is an lifetime member of Langley Players after serving for about a decade as the drama club’s president. In The Foursome, these four old college buddies are attending their reunion and they head for the golf course. What do you have when you gather a boozer, a conniver, a worry wart, and a doting dad together? she queried. “It’s that familiar feeling of picking up where you left off, like you do with close friends,” that Renvall liked, noting the four actor are “nice guys” and that comes out in their characters. With the curtain set to go up tonight, Renvall shared that her biggest challenge in preparing for this show has been set development – and that’s saying something for the queen of theatre sets. But working with graphic artists Brent Flink and Caroline Smith, they came up with a cartoonish backdrop “very different from anything I’ve ever done.” Following two months of intense

Our Travels with the Langley Advance

by Pam Erikson

Special to the Langley Advance

Being long-time residents of Langley and avid readers of the Langley Advance, when my husband, Tom, and I decided to take our trip of a lifetime this summer, we dutifully packed the latest edition of the Langley Advance so that we could photograph it in many exotic locations and send it back to the paper for the travel section. Our almost five-week odyssey saw us flying to London, England for a few days, then boarding a ship for a tour of the Baltic and Scandinavian countries. Tom had his camera bag with our neatly folded Langley Advance in the side pocket so that it would be with us at all times. During our three days in London, we took fabulous photographs of all the standard sights – Big Ben, Tower of London, Buckingham Palace, etc., but were so very tired and jetlagged that in the three days of walking, taking pictures and sampling local ale, we completely forgot to take the newspaper out of the back pocket. So, when we headed to the ship, we said the first thing we would do in our first stop (in Copenhagen) was take the Advance picture. To make a long story short, we had very long days in Copenhagen, Stockholm, Gothenburg, Helsinki, St. Petersburg, and Estonia – saw more museums, palaces, castles and churches than you can imagine – and at every

stop we were so engaged in seeing sights, meeting people and tasting local food and beverages that we took over 2,000 pictures and forgot to take the newspaper out of the back pocket every time. When we got back to England, where we did the changeover to start the second portion of our trip (including a trans-Atlantic sea crossing), we had a good laugh at how our Langley Advance had travelled so far with us almost like a stowaway – well hidden and quiet. But in the evenings we would slap our heads and realize that we had ‘done were sorry for the lonely Langley it again’. This Advance which we feel has eas“Our Langley Advance had actually conily become the most travelled travelled so far with us, newspaper around. tinued for a few more When we arrived in Cork, almost like a stowaway.” days – at Ireland – the weather was fabuPAM ERIKSON Stonehenge lous and we enjoyed a day in where we took the pristine countryside. Upon about 200 picour return to the ship, we had tures of ourselves! – with the newspaper the ‘uh oh’ moment just in time before safely tucked away in the bag – and in the ship sailed. We were docked up Paris, where we strolled the Champs against the beautiful small town of Elysees up to the Louvre, where we Cobh, so I grabbed the Advance and stood had one of those surreal moments – a on our deck with the town in the backglass of French red wine with a lunch ground. Finally – we had our first picof crepes and crème brulee – and again ture. This was 22 days in to the trip and it was not until back in our room that we actually got the first shot. I was so night that we both looked at each other excited and left the paper on the dresser and burst out laughing! We got to the to be sure to carry it in hand for our point where we took the newspaper out next stop in the Faroe Islands. And what of the bag and started apologizing to it. happened then do you think?

too dark to see anything. So back into the camera bag it went until our upcoming two days in Reyjkavik, Iceland, where we had tours booked to see volcanoes, waterfalls and glaciers. Again, we apparently had too much fun (and local brew) because true to form, the paper stayed in its safe hiding spot until remembered in the evening. Following Iceland, we had five days at sea where the seas were very good and we had a chance to relax. Probably the best laugh we had on this whole endeavour was the fact that we had such great plans for our Langley Advance, now known as the best, most quiet and well-behaved travel companion one could have. The newspaper is now home with us and is being added into our scrapbook because truly, everywhere we went, so did the paper – it’s just that no one saw it.

Rose Gellert Hall will host a second performance by pianist Kevin Chen. The eight-year-old will provide some of the musical composition as well as the piano music. Kevin has recently completed his first symphony. Join the Abbotsford Youth Orchestra, directed by Calvin Dyck, on Sunday at 3 p.m. for Kevin’s Symphony #1 along with Mozart’s Piano Concerto in a concert entitled aptly, The Prodigy. According to Dyck, Kevin was inspired by the orchestra when he played with it last year and tried his hand at composing. This will be Kevin’s

second concert with the Abbotsford Youth Orchestra this fall, with the first being Friday in Abbotsford. He will be performing with guest pianist, Colleen Athparia, his teacher. Tickets can be purchased at the Rose Gellert Hall box office, 4899 207th St., for $21 ($11 for students).

Time to panic

The Langley-based co-founder of the Panic Squad is set to join fellow laugh-inducers at the season kick-off of the Gallery 7 Theatre in Abbotsford Friday. Panic Squad describes its form of comedy as “super clean and super funny.” The group has performed at churches, conferences,

and businesses internationally. While the troupes normally do the show in groups of three, the Gallery 7 opener, billed as Panic Squad and Friends, will feature Swan along with members from Washington and the Lower Mainland. Clean, yet in improvstyle, this is the kind of comedy audience members can take their mom and kids to without fear. Visit www.gallery7theatre.com for details.

Art takes flight

A new exhibit has opened at the Fort Gallery in Fort Langley called Lament of the Butterflies II. It runs until Oct. 20. The opening reception is Friday at 7 p.m. with artists Doris Auxier and Edith Krause. This show focuses on pieces illustrating Auxier’s and Krause’s visual exploration of the Garry oak ecosystem in B.C. The Garry oak is able to fill gaps created as the coastal climate changes. An oil painter, Auxier is on the faculty of the art department of TWU. Her images of root balls conjure up numerous metaphors for life, the foundational nature of plants, and human complexities. Krause is also a faculty member at TWU. Her contribution to the show is through silkscreens and photographs of microscopic images of butterfly wings and images of invasive plants. The exhibit also incorporates Krause’s photographs of Garry oaks.

Growing season continues in winter

S

mall-space gardeners who have now harvested most of their summer vegetables have several choices for occupying the bare earth in their containers as winter draws closer. Fall plantings of leafy crops may be successful, if the weather co-operates. Nurseries sell enticing leafy plants for winter containers, or closer to Christmas, you can get decorative berried branches which can be thrust into the soil. One beautiful alternative is planting a bulb pot in at least one container that won’t be needed for spring vegetables. Early tulips are especially suitable, since their flowers are usually over by the end of May and their leaves are dying back. This is especially good timing for adding nutrients to the pots and then putting in transplants of summer crops. Tomatoes and peppers are especially suitable for containers. People who would like to re-plant the tulips next fall can lift them, let the leaves finish withering in a community pot, then store them in absolutely dry conditions. The key to re-blooming is to keep them totally dry all through summer. This is how old-fashioned gardeners kept the same tulips going year after year. The species tulips such

as the Gregii and the Kaufmannia group are mostly dwarf, but they are the earliest and have pretty darkly spotted and speckled leaves. One of the few tall Gregii tulips is the red-flowered 50centimetre (20-inch) ‘Casa Grande.’ The ‘Emperor’ series of tulips (Fosteriana) also blooms very early. Flower colours include orange, red, white and yellow in solids and bi-coloureds. The single and double

early tulips also have many colours and large flowers. Double earlies are magnificent, though they can end up face down in the mud if rain gets into their masses of petals. The major pest of container tulips is squirrels that love to dig the bulbs up and eat them. One way of foiling them is covering the pot with wire mesh. Pea mesh can also work, though it’s best doublelayered and securely fastened. The whole range of spring bulbs can be forced over winter, unearthed bit by bit as shoots appear in January or early February, and brought inside. Development and blooming speeds up once they are exposed to house temperatures. Hyacinths are the most popular. Generally, the shorter spring bulbs, including crocuses, scilla, and Iris reticulata, make the best windowsill displays, because they don’t lean. The taller tulips and daffodils tend to flop unless you stake them. Forcing bulbs means giving them a period of moist cold, which works best if you can keep them outside by placing the planted pots in a shallow pit in the garden The pots should be covered with leaves, straw, bean vines, cut-up cornstalks, or something else light and airy which allows access in freezing cold. Grass clippings don’t work, because they pack

down too tightly. People with no outside garden can try forcing bulbs in pots in a garage or carport. It is quite doable, but is more work than forcing bulbs out in a garden, because the bulbs need to be covered so that they’re in the dark, and watered regularly. All forced bulbs can be planted outside as soon as possible, and those fed after blooming can flower the next spring. Hyacinths are especially successful planted outside.

utumn brings cooler weather, and a rainbow of leaves welcomes us. It also marks a change in our vision of food and celebration. For many, this means indulgences in comfort foods to warm the soul, satisfy our hunger, and highlight the gatherings of family and friends. Eating is a huge part of our social lives, but that does not always have to mean complete abandonment of healthy choices. There are many ways to pacify our desires with foods that are nutritious, without leaving us feeling void of pampered appetites. This Fat-Free Sweet Potato Bisque is a perfect fall recipe. Sweet potatoes are loaded with beta carotene (recognizable from their orange colour), and are high in vitamins A and C. Their moist, sweet texture is ideal for mimick-

ing richness, when in fact, there is no added fat in this recipe whatsoever. Many are confused by the differences between sweet potatoes and yams, due to the misinterpretation of the North American grocery industry. Sweet potatoes have orange flesh, while yams are starchier, less flavourful, and

have pale flesh. The names here are usually mismatched with each other, but in Europe, for example, the names are assigned accurately. Although this soup is great served by itself, it is a remarkable first course to introduce traditional holiday flavours of stuffed turkey, cranberries, and all the trimmings. The addition of nutmeg and cloves gives it a warm earthiness, and highlights the incredible natural flavour of the sweet potato. The elegance of the presentation is heightened when beautifully garnished with swirls of sour cream and a sparse scattering of freshly chopped parsley. With the autumn air surrounding us, this soup will help to soothe cravings of comfort food, while helping us watch our waistlines... at least with the first course.

Fat-Free Sweet Potato Bisque Six portions as a first course

1kg sweet potato, peeled, diced 1cm 1 tbsp brown sugar 1 tbsp salt ½ tsp ground nutmeg ¼ tsp ground cloves ¼ tsp ground white pepper 3½ c skim milk ¼ c no-fat sour cream 1 tbsp skim milk fresh parsley, finely chopped

Steam the sweet potato over boiling water for 20 minutes until fully cooked and tender. Place the drained sweet potato back into the pot, off the heat. Add sugar, salt, nutmeg, cloves, and white pepper. Mash. Start adding 1½ cups of the skim milk slowly while continuing to mash. Switch to a whisk, turn heat to medium, and blend in the remaining milk. Stir occasionally over medium heat until completely heated. Salt and pepper. Combine the sour cream with the tablespoon of milk. Portion into bowls and drizzle the sour cream mixture on each portion. Sprinkle with parsley.

UFV’s Whitehouse dominating B.C. links A Walnut Grove resident is helping to lead the University of Fraser Valley men’s golf team to the top of its conference.

Darren Whitehouse got his golfing start at The Redwoods Golf Course. Troy Landreville/Langley Advance

by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

It’s not likely that Darren Whitehouse will be the next Tiger Woods. Or even the next Canadian golf great in the form of, say, Mike Weir or Stephen Ames. An ace student, Darren Whitehouse will probably be, in the not-to-distant future, one of the best golf-playing lawyers in the Lower Mainland. This fall, the 21-year-old Walnut Grove resident has led the University of Fraser Valley’s men’s golf team to the top of the PACWEST (Pacific Western Athletic Association] conference. Ranked No. 3 in the Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association (CCAA), the UFV men’s team has won its first two PACWEST events, and has a commanding lead in the overall conference standings with one event remaining, this weekend’s conference championships at the Chilliwack Golf Club & Country Club. The tournament runs this Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 5 and 6. UFV is already guaranteed a spot at the 2013 PING CCAA Golf National Championship at the Royal Quebec Golf Club Oct. 15-18. Whitehouse, who graduated from Walnut Grove Secondary in 2009, is having a standout fall on the links. For the week ending Sept. 15, he was named as one of the PACWEST golf athletes of the week, after leading UFV to a first-place finish at the UBCO

Invitational at The Quail in Kelowna. Whitehouse shot a 132 for the 36-hole tournament, helping the Cascades to a 13-stroke victory over second place Vancouver Island University (VIU) Mariners with a team score of 309. “It feels, first of all, great to win as a team, but in my last year, to be able to win the tournament and be in contention as an individual to win the whole PACWEST individual championships, it feels great,” Whitehouse said. Preceding Whitehouse’s win in Kelowna was a fourth-place result at the VIU Invitational at the Morningstar Golf Club in Nanaimo. His combined score

golf,” he said. “But I’ve always been just as fascinated with law, political science, and criminal justice. The more stable route seems more attractive to me.” Whitehouse is a political science major with an extended minor in criminal justice, and transferred to UFV from Texas A & M Commerce because he felt he could improve his golf game while still receiving a quality education much closer to home. “I wanted to stay at home and finish out my degree, and UFV was the college that was going to allow me to do that, and I knew I was going to get a pretty solid education there, as well,” he said. A Dean’s List student and an Academic All-Canadian, Whitehouse has a goal of attending law school, possibly at the University of Calgary, once he graduates from UFV in 2014. “I thought, if I’m going to attend [university] I might as well be the best I can be,” Whitehouse said, adding that he’s considering the U of Calgary because it specializes in environmental law. “It [environmental law] is something I’d consider going into later in life,” he said. “It’s something that fascinates me.” Away from the classroom, Whitehouse started golfing at nine years of age, attending McDonald’s Kids Camps at The Redwoods Golf Course. His first instructor remains his mentor, Doug Morgan from The Redwoods. “I wouldn’t be here without him [Morgan],” Whitehouse said. “He’s such a pleasant guy to be around and what he’s taught me has always connected.” Whitehouse currently hones his game by working with UFV swing coach Brad Clapp.

Peewee Bears notch first win of gridiron season North Langley atom, peewee, and junior bantam teams came away victorious from a rainy weekend of football. The North Langley Bears peewee football team is winless no more. The Bears got into the win column for the first time this year with a 6-0 victory over the Meadow Ridge Blue Knights. It was an extremely wet game but thanks to dominant line play by Callum Middleton, Ayden Holloway, Chris Morrison, Ian Courtney, and Noah Courtney, the Bears were able to establish a strong running game. North Langley’s lone touchdown came midway through the second quarter. From there the Bears’ defence was able to shut down the Knights, with Shaine Hoy providing the

ROUND 2

Saturday afternoon. With the rain coming down so hard, the lights on the field had to be turned on. Both teams were forced to rely primarily on their running game. Each team scored a pair of touchdowns on the ground with Pablo Wigwigan reaching pay dirt twice for North Langley. Despite the weather, Bears quarterback Jacob Stebbings managed to complete long passes to Alex Henderson and Michael Huggan.

Charlie May also hauled in a pass from Stebbings for a successful convert that provided the eventual margin of victory. Standouts on defence were Eric Hawkins, who had a string of tackles late in the first half, and Jacob Price, who made a hit so hard it was apparently audible in downtown Langley. North Langley flag Bears The host Mission 9ers faced the Bears on a very rainy Saturday. North Langley Yellow played Mission Black with the 9ers winning 2-0.

North Langley Red faced Mission Red and although the 9ers won 3-2, the Bears gave it their all. Jesse Davison and Tyson Craig both scored touchdowns for the North Langley squad. Evan Hoy did an excellent job ripping flags while Ronan Langford was very effective snapping the ball. Langley Yellow played a second game against Mission Red in which the Bears’ Ben Evans and Cole Blaschuk both scored touchdowns, but the 9ers were victorious in a 3-2 win.

“I had some good years in high school [with the Walnut Grove Secondary golf team],” said Whitehouse, now in his third year with the UFV squad. “But I mostly compete as an individual in the summertime.” While he plays for UFV, ultimately, golf is an individual sport. “The toughest part about golf is the amount of pressure you put onto yourself,” Whitehouse said. “Then, when you combine that with the team aspect, where you don’t want to let your teammates down, that’s what makes golf tough.” The walk between shots gives players lots of time to think about their next move, which can be nerve-wracking, Whitehouse explains: “That’s where your mind can let you down. You have to persevere and stay strong.” The payoff, putting the ball where he wants it to land, is always worth it. “There’s nothing like standing back behind the ball before you’re about to

hit, visualizing a shot, and pulling it off,” Whitehouse said. Whitehouse says he likes to “attack” courses, playing aggressively and taking “risky shots.” “I’m not someone who’s going to just play it safe,” he said. “Sometimes it hasn’t worked out but a lot of times it has.” During the summer, Whitehouse competed in the Canadian men’s amateur championship in Victoria, and missed the cut with a pair of 76 rounds. “It’s nearly a 300 person field and only the top 70 make it, so it’s tough,” he said. “But it was an honour just to make it there.” Down the road, golf will take a back seat to a possible career in law. “If I’m able to establish myself… I’d like to come back and play some amateur golf when I get older,” he said. “But I also plan on utilizing my golf in the business world, as well, in order to market my business.”
