How much should it cost to sit down downtown? by Heather Colpitts
Langley City will spend $30,000 on 14 new benches for the downtown. The funds will come from what Councillor Dave Hall calls the council “slush fund” or the Enterprise Fund, a $150,000 fund for council to spend. “In reality it’s slush fund,” and now that the end of the year is coming up, there’s a race to get it spent, Hall said. During the Oct. 7 council meeting he scoffed at the price tag of $1,785 per bench. “I’m a little gun shy,” he said. “We approved $9,000 for stick signs [as part of the City’s wayfinding strategy].” The benches cost $1,350 with the rest going to installation and a contingency. That had Hall questioning why installation would cost so much considering it’s work done by City staff. Administrator Francis Cheung explained that extra funds are
needed because the work is outside the normal staff duties. Hall was also critical of the City using Enterprise Fund money for benches but wouldn’t cover defibrillators for community facilities, which prompted point of order criticism from Coun. Gayle Martin. “I really take offense,” she said. Martin said Hall was implying that staff were spending a whim and trying to use up the money. The Enterprise Fund still has about $99,000 in it for this year. Hall said there was no prior notice that this spending decision was coming before council and should have been dealt with during budget deliberations. During the summer, council walked the downtown to see what should be fixed, refurbished or replaced. The 50 items on the ‘to do’ list included moss/weed growing behind sidewalks, missing bricks in sidewalks, new decorated bicycle racks, graffiti on streetlight standards, and unsightly areas. Fourteen benches were also put on the list and staff consider it more economical to replace them versus refurbishing them. Martin asked whether the

benches have additional pieces that prevent people from lying on them. Staff will look into options.
“Without any dividers on them, it probably looks very homey to someone,” she said.

School cheques faked Someone is using counterfeit cheques to rip off a Langley university campus. by Matthew Claxton firstname.lastname@example.org
A local fraud artist has ripped off Kwantlen Polytechnic University for about $11,000 over the last two months. From August to September, someone has been cashing forged payroll cheques from the school at local cash stores and payday loan outlets. The forged cheques are of high quality, said Cpl. Holly Marks, a spokesperson for
the Langley RCMP. Passing bad cheques was once a much more common crime, but it has been overtaken by credit card fraud in recent Fraud suspect years. Wanted Police have a surveillance photo of the person who was cashing the cheques, but have been unable to identify the person thus far. Anyone with information is being asked to call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or to leave an anonymous tip, all CrimeStoppers at 1-800-2228477 (TIPS).

Kicker puts the boots to cancer
A former professional football player set a goal of kicking 300 field goals on Saturday, with proceeds helping families that are battling cancer. by Troy Landreville
Josh Collins wasn’t going to let a stomach bug stop him from giving cancer the boot Saturday in Walnut Grove. The 32-year-old Langley resident spent part of the morning throwing up at home, the aftermath of what he figured was either a bug or something he ate the day before. Undeterred, Josh wasn’t going to call in sick for a unique fundraiser held in his dad’s memory. A former Arena Football League kicker, Josh suited up for the Birmingham Steeldogs, Cincinnati Jungle Cats, Everett Hawks, and Fresno Central Valley Coyotes over a five-year career, before a career-ending knee injury dashed his hopes of potentially playing for the Seattle Seahawks. These days, Josh works full time while raising four children, but is still kicking field goals for a cause very close to his heart. On Oct. 5, he set a goal of kicking 300 balls through the world’s largest inflatable uprights set up in the Walnut Grove Commerce Centre parking lot. Proceeds from the event, in partnership with Body Smart Health, go to the Ron Collins Foundation, whose mission is to raise funds to cover families’ costs while battling cancer. “I still feel weak,” Josh “I’m going to [kick] said, around until my body shuts noontime down.” Saturday. “But the show must Josh Collins go on. I’m going to [kick] until my body shuts down.” Josh has first hand experience with the struggles a family faces, both financially and emotionally, while fighting the disease. His dad Ron was not a smoker but battled lung cancer, before losing his fight with the disease on April 8, 2009. “It was devastating,” Josh said. “He was my biggest fan and one of my closest friends.” During the ordeal, Josh’s mom had to work full time while taking care of his dad, and it took a huge toll on her. “We searched all across North America for help,” Josh said. “There’s not much out there. Kicking Cancer and the Ron Collins Foundation are going to change this.” According to Josh, the average family battling cancer ends up $50,000 in debt. Josh has become a crusader helping families cope with the financial struggles that
With his threeyear-old daughter Cali as the holder, Josh Collins was about to successfully kick a field goal in the Walnut Grove Commerce Centre parking lot.

come with fighting cancer. And he’s not alone. During the fundraiser the father of four had his family on hand to cheer him on including his wife Sarah and children Braedon, nine, Cali, three, Maysa, two, and Mikaiah, three weeks. In fact, Cali bravely volunteered as the holder. This isn’t the first time Josh has used his kicking talents for the foundation. Over a 48-hour span in August 2012, Josh kicked 1,955 field goals from the 35 yard line, for a total of 68,425 yards.
“That’s the equivalent of running six-anda-half marathons,” he noted. This year, he hopes to set a Guiness World Record by kicking 4,000 field goals in front of over 1,000,000 people across six Canadian cities to help families in their fight against cancer. His effort started in June and wraps up this month. To donate online or to check out Josh’s kicking schedule this month, visit www. kickingcancer.ca.

‘Natural person’ is convicted of tax evasion
A judge ruled that tax evasion is not “natural” for a Langley locksmith. by Mike Hager
Special to the Langley Advance
A Langley man has been ordered to pay a fine of $214,323 and complete 150 hours of community service after evading taxes on $1.1 million he earned from his security and locksmith business, according to a judge. The Canada Revenue Agency announced Monday that David John Barrett was also handed an 18-month conditional sentence at Vancouver Provincial Court recently after pleading guilty in July to one count of tax evasion totalling $285,765. The CRA said Barrett failed to report more than $1.1 million in income from his company Citiloc Systems Ltd. on his personal tax returns during a six-year period ending in 2010.

Pilot survived runway bellyflop
by Rochelle Baker Glacier Media
It was only as the plane descended towards the runway for its emergency landing at the Abbotsford Airport that pilot Ryan Curr’s stomach sank. Curr, 31, was forced to make a dramatic belly landing on Friday at 4 p.m. after his Piper aircraft’s landing gear system failed to deploy. The Langley man, who has 11 years experience as a recreational pilot, had been flying circles for an hour during a flight from Pitt Meadows to Chilliwack trying to troubleshoot the problem and dislodge the jammed wheels. Curr realized he was out of options when the emergency release system, used as a last resort, failed to jettison the wheels. “I called the Abbotsford tower and spoke with the controller,” said Curr. “I told him I’d be coming out there in two to three hours and I’d be crashing on their runway.”
Curr spent three hours flying the length of the Fraser Valley to burn off the extra fuel in his full tanks. “I didn’t want to set down with a bunch of gas sitting two feet away from me in the wings,” he said. In the meantime, Curr made some difficult calls to his wife Nicola, brother Alex, and his parents. “I tried to explain that this does happen,” he said. “It was just an abundance of caution but I wanted to say that I loved them, and I was looking forward to seeing them on the ground.” His reassurance did not allay the fears of his wife and mother who “weren’t in much of an emotional place to do much talking,” said Curr. Nicola and Alex rushed to the Abbotsford airport. It wasn’t until his final exchange with the airport controller who wished him luck that Curr comprehended the gravity of his situation. “That’s when I realized I’m about to crash and my stomach dropped,” said Curr. “But I recovered a couple minutes later and did what I had to.” Recalling his training a decade ago, Curr left the cockpit door open so when the plane landed it wouldn’t get jammed if the frame twisted.
He then made a textbook emergency landing, putting the Piper down smoothly on its underside, straight and flat. “It was a normal landing,” said Curr. “I didn’t rush it and didn’t do anything different.” Sparks shot up from the underside of the plane and smoke filled the cockpit as he landed. The moment the aircraft was stationary, Curr was out on the tarmac. The waiting fire trucks raced to the scene but the Piper was largely intact and no fire broke out. Curr’s adrenaline finally kicked in as he glanced back at his plane. “That’s when the panic and shaking set in… looking at all the fire trucks,” he said. Despite the immediate shock, Curr, who works as a paramedic, isn’t planning on giving up flying. Even though his Piper, which he just acquired in August, can’t be salvaged, Carr plans to purchase a new aircraft. He has his wife’s support and she’s even agreed to go up again herself. “I’ve had that close call in my [flying] career that everybody talks about,” said Carr. “I should be good from now on.”

The kids ended up selling 349 books, the highest sales in the past five years. The school and its 250 students will benefit from the funds raised which are earmarked for library books, field trips, and technological equipment. He even greeted families at the start of school in costume.

Good place for bad stuff
Langley Township’s annual hazardous waste disposal event is coming around again.
A special event that gives Township of Langley residents a chance to dispose of potentially dangerous products and recycle other things like electronics in a safe and environmentally friendly way is being offered again this fall. The annual Household Hazardous Waste Plus Recycling Drop-Off Event will be held Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 19 and 20, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the Township of Langley Operations Centre, 4700 224th St. The drop-off is free to Township residents. Proof of residency is required. Household hazardous waste items including leftover paint, antifreeze, bleach, brake fluid, motor oil, fluorescent lights, empty propane tanks, pesticides, and turpentine will be collected. Any household product with a skull and cross bones, flames, a skeleton hand, or an explosion on the label can be brought in. For the second year in a row, electronics, small appliances, batteries, smoke detectors, and mercury thermostats will also be accepted. “Electronics may not be hazardous,” said solid waste coordinator Debbie Fleming, “but they can no longer be placed in landfills, so the Township felt it made sense to accept them.” Fleming also offered a reminder that many items – such as a bag of batteries or a can of paint – are accepted yearround at local recycling facilities and bottle depots. Staff will be handing out information about local facilities during the Oct. 19-20

Once collected, items like electronics will indeed be recycled and the household hazardous wastes will be disposed of safely. event, and more information on where to take items throughout the year can be found online at rcbc.bc.ca/recyclepedia. Because hazardous waste can be harmful to people, animals, and the environment, it cannot be poured down the drain, put in the garbage, burned, buried, or left to seep into the ground. Keeping it at home is not an option, either, which is why many people make use of the Township’s annual drop-off event. “People have come to expect it,” Fleming said. “They know that toxic products they have can be properly disposed of this way and that electronics and small appliance will be recycled.” This year, signage will be posted on the corner of 48th Avenue and 224th Street to indicate what the wait time is for those in line, and offer information on free alternative recycling sites.

Money means business first
In the movie Killing Them Softly, the lead character, played by Brad Pitt, offers the insight that “America is not a country, it’s business.” The same could certainly be said of Canada, even before the revelations of industrial espionage carried out on behalf of Canadian mining interests in Brazil by our national spy agency, Communications Security Establishment Canada (CSEC). After all, the divide between the corporate boardroom and a democratically elected government like Canada’s gets pretty grey at some levels. Corporate executives hold their jobs at the behest of those shareholders who bother to vote, just as a democracy is supposedly controlled by its putative shareholders: the country’s citizens… those who bother to vote, that is. Of course, in an ideal democracy, everyone, rich or poor, is an equal partner at the ballot box, while in the corporate structure, those who have more money – or control more shares – have a greater say when a vote is taken. More importantly – and this is where the line between business and the business of government tends to get cloudy – a country’s prime assets are its people, and their well-being is the reason for the government’s existence, while in a corporation, people are just assets – and money is the ultimate goal. That distinction appears to have been lost almost entirely in Canada’s governance of late. Only science that bears financial fruit is allowed relevance. Research that dares to question the validity of the corporate view of economics is stamped out. Human rights are those that do not stand in the way of monetary gain. And now, as apparently clarified by goings-on in Brazil, even our spies have identified the national interest of Canada to be congruent with the financial interests of our corporations. When it’s only money that does the talking, it’s strictly business. – B.G.

Ability to speak not ‘smart’
Dear Editor, My grandfather is the smartest man I know. I say that not to brag or waste your time, but to say I’ve never been insulted in such a way by an article. You implying that intelligence comes from the ability to speak insults all mute people, all stutterers, all non-speaking animals. If you have yet to see from my implicature, my grandfather is mute and has been for years. I’m sorry you rely on technology, but learn to redefine what “being smart” or intelligence is. It’s articles like this that have you working for a community paper and not soaring with online blogs. J. Patter, via email
Internet and phones destroying the world
Dear Editor, I enjoyed your column [No such thing as smart phones, Oct. 1 Odd Thoughts, Langley Advance], as I had a similar conversation this week about how internet/phone companies are changing/destroying our world. But it’ll take 10-15 years before more people become aware. A comment for your information is that BC Hydro is going to be charging an extra $35 per month for people to keep their old meters, starting in January. Thanks for your “odd thoughts.” Rob Williamson, via email

It has been a wonderful assistance for us that began shortly after the local IGA closed. We now also shop at No Frills, but access to another market and different choices are important for us. The volunteer drivers are extremely helpful, assisting us and our shopping carts on and off the bus. Both of the men are friendly and polite, and each has a wonderful sense of humour, so it is a pleasant journey. Several of us have notified the senior centre of our appreciation, but we think it would be helpful for others in the community to be aware of it also.

Dealer helps deliver maternity centre
The owners of Langley Chrysler are contributing $100,000. by Heather Colpitts
Langley Memorial Hospital’s new maternity unit can’t come soon enough for staff. “Last week we had a full house at maternity,” noted Dr. David Chapman. Then two more women arrived, in labour. That’s why the $100,000 contribution by Trotman Auto Group and its dealership Langley Chrysler to the It All Starts Here maternity ward campaign was cause for a celebration on Oct. 8. “The entire continuum of maternity services is going to improve,” the doctor said. Mark Omelaniec is chairing the Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation maternity expansion campaign and said the foundation welcomes donations of all sizes as well as legacy contributions. The foundation must raise $5.35 million of the $11 million project and wants to have all the funds in place by the time the construction is done and the new maternity centres opens next spring.
He said it wasn’t a difficult sell when he spoke to the Trotmans about helping out. Their contribution brings the amount donated so far to $3.5 million. “We’ve been humbled by the significant level of support,” Omelaniec said. Langley Chrysler is one of five B.C. dealerships owned by Trotman Auto Group, which is made up of president Mike Trotman, and brothers Brad and Mitch. The Trotman brothers, all parents, say they are all users of the Langley hospital, as are many of their staff members and families. Contributing to health care is nothing new for the auto group and its staff. Over the past several years, the staff have held jeans Fridays and barbecues, raising about $18,000 for the hospital foundation. The $100,000 donation represents the largest charity commitment by Trotman Auto Group which also supports community groups such as DARE and sports teams. Mike explained that the company and staff opt for community-based and local causes – “a lot of stuff around children and families.” The auto group is about
to see its own family grow from its current five dealerships. “Langley Fiat is being added to the mix,” said Mike. Trotman Auto Group purchased Springman Saturn Saab, right next door on the Langley Bypass and will have a grand opening Nov. 1 as a new Fiat dealership. Mike said the deal gets the business a trained staff and an additional body shop to handle the workload.

Recent railway tragedies, such as the derailment in Lac-Megantic, Que. this summer that killed more than 40 people, makes rail safety in our community paramount in people’s minds. For that reason, the Greater Langley Chamber
of Commerce has invited CN Rail to provide information on rail safety in general, and along the rail corridors in Langley. Francois Boucher, general superintendent for CN’s B.C. south region, is the speaker at next week’s chamber dinner.

The monthly meeting is Oct. 15 at Cascades Casino, with registration starting at 5 p.m., followed by dinner at 6:30. Admission is $35 for chamber members, $50 for non-members, and advanced registration is required by Friday, Oct. 11 by contacting the chamber.
Now, speaking of chamber happenings, October is a busy one for the folks at the local chamber. Tonight, for instance, they’re gathering for the monthly Open Late for Business series, where a business hosts a networking session. Today’s session, Thursday, Oct. 10, is being held at Domaine de Charberton Estate Winery at 1064 216th St.
The event – complete with a wine sampling and appetizers – runs from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. While it is free, the chamber staff ask that you RSVP.
Staff are also gearing up for the 17th annual Celebration of Excellence. That event, which is used to honour excellence among local businesses, is set for Oct. 23. The awards evening provides an opportunity to celebrate Langley businesses and organizations that have made a significant contribution to the community spirit, service, and quality of life through leadership, innovation, and success, said chamber president Kristine Simpson. The event is in the ball-

Two Langley businesses have joined forces in an unusual partnership that will showcase talented young musicians every weekend until March. The Wickertree, a furnishing company in the 20400 block of Langley Bypass, is working with folks at the nearby Tom Lee Music (on Fraser Highway, across from White Spot) to create a concert series every Saturday and Sunday. Here’s an example of thinking outside the box. The music store has set up a Yamaha grand piano that is in “centre court” at The Wickertree. Every weekend 12:30-2:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, there will be music performed for shoppers. It’s an innovative way to hopefully benefit all involved, especially the young musicians who may be performing in public for the first time. I like it, and it sure doesn’t hurt for the shoppers at The Wickertree, who can enjoy an enhanced ambiance.

Service for the Needy is a new campaign by a local business to help out the Langley Food Bank. Holeshot Motorsports wants to donate at least 300 meals. “Anybody who has service work done in October, we’ll donate a meal,” said Alan Dekleer, with Holeshot. Dekleer was looking for a way to give back and chose to help people who need the services of the Langley Food Bank. About six years ago, the business moved from the Langley Bypass to Highway 1 and 200th Street. The business, open since 1984, deals in certain brands – Honda, Suzuki, Kawasaki, and KTM, but services all makes. “However if people want to bring get service work done, we service all makes and models,” he said. To book an appointment and help the campaign, call 604-882-3800. People going for service are also welcome to bring along a non-perishable food or cash donation.

YOUR COMMUNITY, YOUR NEWSPAPER, YOUR LIFE.
National Newspaper Week October 6-12, 2013
Growing from history to future Newspapers keep evolving with the communities they serve – as they always have. by Bob Groeneveld firstname.lastname@example.org
The Langley Advance doesn’t look much like it did in the 1930s – no community newspaper that’s been around that long does. For one thing, we didn’t have websites back then. We didn’t have Facebook pages or maintain Twitter feeds. And we certainly didn’t have Layar’s “augmented reality” buried in our pages. We keep changing, growing with our communities, but you will continue to count on us to provide you with your community’s news. Community journalism will remain with us as long as we are human beings. Before predicting the future of community newspapers, you need to look back… certainly back before the Langley Advance came into existence 82 years
ago… before lead type and printing presses churned out community announcements, local news reports, and advertisements for local businesses. The story goes back before Gutenburg built the printing press that changed – but did not create – modern communication. Indeed, the vast majority of common folk would not be literate today if it weren’t for Gutenberg – although, nearly all of what was printed on his press for common people – in the context of community news, at least – was political cartoons… because so few people could read in the 1400s. Official, trustworthy news was presented by town criers and local clergy – the community news reporters who became the writers and editors of the newspapers that eventually sprouted up all over, as people started realizing the communications possibilities of Gutenberg’s press. But the roots of modern community journalism go a long way back beyond Gutenberg and town criers – so far back that we really have to guess at what

Check out visual artists at work New park dedicated An artists group celebrates two decades of creativity in Fort Langley with an exhibit at Langley Centennial Museum. The inside of Langley Centennial Museum is decorated with local art throughout October and into early November. The Fort Langley Artists Group (FLAG) celebrates its 20th anniversary with Passages and Reflections: A Unifying Retrospective of FLAG, 19932013 at the museum at 9135 King Street. The exhibit runs Sept. 19 to Nov. 3. The show features 2D and 3D works from 23 artists, including 19 current members and four founding members, including
Margo Harrison, who is both a founding and current member. Artists demonstrations are being held on Saturdays up to Nov. 2. Evolving from the group “Artists At Work” in 1993, FLAG has worked to promote Fort Langley as a centre for the arts and to raise awareness of works produced by local artists. Over the past 20 years, FLAG has held close to 60 shows at their gallery in Fort Langley’s CN Station. Almost all of these shows have challenged FLAG members to produce work based on a theme. This past Saturday, Oct. 5, Harrison put her sculpting skills on display, starting with a lump of earthenware clay and handbuilding a cat sculpture Also this past Saturday, Beverly Lawrence created animals in clay using sculpting and slabs.
Upcoming demos include: • Saturday, Oct. 12: Vivian Harder and Robin Bandenieks. Both artists use oil paints, but paint in two distinctly different styles using different methods of getting the paint onto the canvas. • Saturday, Oct. 19: Mary-Ann Snell, watercolour, and Alison Philpott who does detailed coloured pencil drawing of stones using layering and blending. • Saturday, Oct. 26: Kathleen Gaitt, mixed media on paper, and Marguerite Whelton, watercolours. • Saturday, Nov. 2: Candice Perry Moen will be conducting a dry point printmaking workshop using non-toxic inks and Plexiglass and a small printing press. Donna Leavens will show how useful pen and watercolor are for creating plein air works. Louise Swan will add “realism to your paintings” using either oils or acrylics.
Visiting quartet performs the masters The music school hosts a renowned quartet this month.
Masterpieces by German composers Beethoven and Brahms are the basis for the
Oct. 19 concert by the New Oxford String Quartet. The Langley Community Music School (LCMS) show in the Rose Gellert Hall starts at 7:30 p.m. “The audience will hear two big
masterpieces written by German giants, Beethoven and Brahms,” said Elizabeth Bergmann, artistic director concerts for LCMS. The group’s repertoire spans works over more than 200 years but the quartet also makes a
special point to promote Canadian composers and will include such works in the show. Tickets are $30 for adults, $25 for seniors, and $20 for students. For tickets call 604-5342848. The Rose Gellert Hall is at 4899 207th St.
Lynn Fripps Park will official open Oct. 15. The memory of a Langley woman who was dedicated to children, the community, and to improving the lives of those with cancer will live on in a new park which is being named in her honour this month. Lynn Fripps Park will be officially opened by Township of Langley Council at 3 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 15. The park is located next to the new Lynn Fripps Elementary School, at 21021 81A Ave. in Willoughby. “Lynn was an outstanding, optimistic community volunteer who was committed to improving the lives of those around her,” said Township Mayor Jack Froese. “She made a huge impact on our community and we are pleased to be naming this park in her honour.” Fripps was a member of the Aldergrove Community Enhancement Society, Aldergrove Revitalization Committee, Bertrand Creek Enhancement Society, and was instrumental in forming Aldergrove Neighbourhood Services. A wife and mother of three, she was involved in her children’s school and local sports team and coached
swimming. She was passionate about environmental protection and promoted breastfeeding education. In 1999, Fripps was diagnosed with breast cancer. She poured her energy and talent into improving life for others in the same situation, doing extensive fundraising for the Candian Breast Cancer Foundation and the Canadian Cancer Society. She also created the Shower of Thanks Campaign, encouraging those with the disease to send notes of appreciation to cancer researchers. Fripps passed away in October of 2005 but her efforts to improve the quality of life for residents in the Township of Langley continue to be remembered throughout the community. Her family, friends, and members of the public are encouraged to attend the opening of the new Lynn Fripps Park, which will serve the community and commemorate Fripp’s contributions for generations to come. The new Lynn Fripps Park features two soccer fields, a softball diamond, and a children’s playground. It shares hard court surfaces with Lynn Fripps Elementary School, which was also named in her honour when it opened in September of 2012.
National Newspaper Awareness Week is the perfect time to celebrate a community partner as wonderful as The Langley Advance! But truly, their contributions to the residents and businesses of Langley are appreciated year-round. We have worked with The Langley Advance for many years, and have built a strong relationship based on dependability and results.The customer support we receive from the Advance team is matched only by the tremendous value we receive for our advertising dollars.

Cranberry Festival is this Saturday – sweet Berry sales, goodies, kids fun and performers are on the bill. by Heather Colpitts
The Cranberry Festival organizers are trying to make it easier for the public to get around this year by having shuttle services to and from various pickup points. Why, because an event that attracts thousands of people into a small area also means there are parking limitations. There are shuttlebus
pickup/drop-off points at Walnut Grove Secondary and at Trinity Western University. There will be four buses travelling between these sites and the festival which runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 12 and is organized through the Fort Langley Business Improvement Association. Users will be dropped off at either Francis and Glover Roads or on 96th Avenue. “Both locations will have a bus ready by 9:30 a.m. for guests. Each location will have approximately 20 minutes between pick-ups,” explained Eric
Woodward, one of the organizers. There is also a mini-bus doing runs between the festival and Langley Fine Arts School which has offered up its parking lot for public use during the festival. “The last bus will leave Fort Langley at 4:30 p.m. for all locations,” Woodward noted. That means one less issue people have to deal with so they are free up to enjoy the annual celebration to the tart and tangy berry. And will there be berries. “We have about 7,500
pounds provided by Ocean Spray again this year,” he noted. In addition to fresh berry sales in front of the Fort Langley Community Hall, there will be lots to do, see and eat. There are more than 70 vendors at the marketplace and entertainment throughout the day. The performers list for Saturday includes: • Scott Mackenzie Band & Stonehenge • Happy 2 B Hear • The Horvat Family • The Flying Ritas • The Seabillys • Michaela Gallant & Sandor Hah
In Honour of International Newspaper Carrier Day on October 12, 2013 The Langley Advance would like to thank all our newspaper carriers for making an important contribution to our community. We value the work you do!
• Tallya & Cornel Dyke • The VIDOS • Emma & Vic Alves • Amanda Marino • Mackenzie Kuettel • Savannah Quinn • Earl Taylor The pancake breakfast kicks off the day at 8:30 a.m. on Church Street between Mavis and Mary Avenues. There are kids activities in the area between Mary Avenue and Glover Road. As well, the Fort Langley National Historic site has half-price admission that day as well as heritage activities. Berries from this fort were shipped to help scurvy-ridden gold prospectors in the 1840s and 1850s. There will be canoe
races on the Bedford Channel. A good place to watch is Marina Park. The Fort Wine Co. will also be sampling new vinegars and jellies, Sky Helicopters is offering aerial tours of the cranberry bogs and Fort Langley (for a minimum fee of $20) and lots of local businesses will have their cranberrybased products available at the marketplace. When it’s time to take a load off, head to St. Andrew’s United Churchh, 9125 Glover Rd. The church has a luncheon of roast turkey on a bun with cranberries, as well as hot dogs, home baking and fall flowers from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Oct. 12.

Housing sales bounce back to near normal levels
Langley saw a lot of houses change hands over the past month. by Matthew Claxton
Housing sales and construction were steady or increased in September compared to recent months in the Lower Mainland. The sales of every type of housing in Langley was up this September compared to the same month a
year ago, with some types of housing seeing large increases. For example, 103 detached houses sold last month, compared to 66 a year earlier, and 70 townhouses sold, up 133.3 per cent from the 30 that sold in 2012. While the number of houses and condos sold was slightly down from August, the sale of townhouses spiked so much it was up more than 20 per cent from the previous month. According to the Fraser
Valley Real Estate Board, sales activity numbers are edging closer to “typical levels.” Regionally, there were 1,131 home sales processed through the Multiple Listing Service in September from Delta to Abbotsford and Mission. “It is good news however, it’s important to put the increase into context,” said Ron Todson, president of the FVREB. “Our home sales in September went from the worst in 10 years to just below our 10year average.”
Construction workers are building new townhouses and condos in Willoughby.
Troy Landreville Langley Advance
He said first time homebuyers may be just now returning to the market after the federal government tightened mortgage insurance restrictions about a year ago. Despite the increase in sales activity, prices were relatively stable in most areas, and the aver-
age price for all types of housing actually dropped by 1.1 per cent, from $487,660 to $482,203 over a year. The housing market is still considered to favour buyers over sellers, according to FVREB statistics. Home construction
remained stable compared to last year in the Vancouver region, which includes Langley. The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) said there were 1,731 homes of all types that started construction last month, compared to 1,716 last year.

Terrace demands low, hardy hedge Dear Anne,

t would be useful to check with your neighbours who have similar south-west exposures and find out what winters are like in your location. Do their planters ever freeze? Are there high winds from the west? Is your building very close to the coast? There are some evergreen flowering, fragrant shrubs (like ceanothus) which would surely tempt you, but it needs a warm, sheltered spot. The sides of containers are very vulnerable to freezing, and containerized plants need to be one zone hardier than ones planted in the open garden.

Box (Buxus microphylla) usually grows three to four feet tall, is dense, and needs little pruning. It likes sun, but needs watering in dry spells. There are many varieties of box, but B. microphylla is one of the hardiest. Junipers should also do well in your situation. Most are very hardy and drought-resistant. Some are dwarf. Some other evergreen shrubs don’t meet all of your criteria, but are so nice you might be tempted. Cotoneaster dammeri is evergreen and dense, and its white flowers in spring are followed by red berries. Normally it’s about 30 centimetres (one foot) tall, but there are taller forms. Another which you might like so much that you decide to plunge for a one-foot hedge is Daphne cneorum. Pronounced “neeorum,” its common name is the Garland Flower.

“I recently moved into a top-floor Vancouver condo with a lovely terrace which faces west and south, making it extremely hot. “I shall have a planter of about three metres (10 feet) length and 60 centimetres (24 inches) depth. “What type of budgetpriced hedging would be suitable? I need something evergreen, heat-tolerant, with dense growth, but not in constant need of pruning, and having a maximum height one to 1.2 metres (three to four feet). “Scent/flowers would be a miracle addition.”
Bob Groeneveld/Langley Advance
Lavendar can be useful as a low containerized hedge, adding both bright colour and a beautiful scent. It produces hugely fragrant pink flowers, has small evergreen leaves, spreads to a metre or slightly more across, and is prairie-hardy (Zone 2). It’s likely to end up overflowing the sides of the planter. It is so popular, that it’s usually the most inexpensive of the daphnes. Some daphnes are taller. Daphne retusa grows about 60 centimetres (about two feet) tall. It has very fragrant pink-purple flowers in spring, followed by red (but poisonous) berries. Santolina is an herb with non-edible fragrant foliage. It’s a bushy evergreen shrub (some kinds are green-leaved, others grey). This can grow to about 45 centimetres (a foot and a half) in good conditions. It’s a drought-resistant sunlover which would need pruning about once a year. Santolina’s flowers are borne in yellow clusters. Other sun-loving,
drought-resistant herbs include sage and taller forms of lavender. Even rosemary ‘Hardy Arp’ might work in your location. It must be ‘Hardy Arp’ however, which is said to be root-hardy to Zone 6. Frankly, the rosemary is a long shot. But it is very fragrant and flowers in spring. Sage and rosemary need frequent pruning, but both can be useful in the kitchen. Bamboo is another possibility. I have seen it grown very successfully in containers, but you’d need a dwarf, clumping kind. Bamboo would enjoy the sun, but would need a lot of water in summer. It would need root pruning every few years. I hope this has given you a few ideas, Eva. The box and juniper are the most fuss-free. Spring is the time when all these plants will be easiest to find.

It is with true sincerity that we write this letter in support of the Langley Advance to help recognize National Newspaper Awareness Week. Mark Anthony Academy of Cosmetology has been advertising within the Lower Mainland Publishing community newspapers for many years and continues to ﬁnd satisfaction in our returnon-investment. As a school that offers a variety of comprehensive Diploma Programs in Cosmetology, we have a potential student base that extends well outside the Langley borders. Through working with the Langley Advance and the Lower Mainland Publishing group of newspapers, we have the ability to hit multiple markets, including Surrey, White Rock, Abbotsford, and Maple Ridge, within a medium that is a relevant and trustworthy source of news in each individual market. Placing our ads amongst this type of quality content also adds credibility of our products and services – one could say, “guilt-by-association.” The fact that we are seen in a wellknown publication adds weight and authority to our advertising claims. When we put an ad out, whether it is in the Langley Advance, Surrey Now, or the Abbotsford Times - we get results! By offering special discounts within our advertisements we are able to track from where our students are coming while offering them incentive and savings at the same time. We can analyze the response from the ads and can estimate that a good percentage of our students seen our brand in the newspaper. Additionally, this tracking has also assisted us in identifying pockets of opportunity we have not before suspected as potential students or customers.

Lastly, the physical presence of the newspaper as a tangible item I can hold in my hands means a lot to me as an advertiser and a reader. This form of news continues to offer me an experience each time I read while offering my brand the opportunity for multiple viewings through a one-time investment which ultimately leads potential students to take steps to learn more about our school.

Nathan Lund ran the ball for 179 yards and three touchdowns. His longest run covered 91 yards. Receiver Kyle Pich caught two touchdown passes while fellow pass-catcher Malcolm Williams hauled in one touchdown reception.

Post-season upon us
The Rams will travel to Kelowna’s Apple Bowl to take on the Sun on Sunday, Oct. 13 in the BCFC semifinal.

There were quite a few bright spots in North Langley peewee squad’s 12-0 loss to Meadow Ridge.
While they came out on the short end of a 12-0 score, the North Langley Bears put in a full effort against Meadow Ridge Gold Knights in peewee football action Saturday at McLeod Stadium. Another strong defensive performance from the Bears led by Jacob Evans and Jedakai Hurley kept the game close right to the end. The momentum changed several times and the halftime score was 6-0 for the Knights. The Bears’ offence was having a hard time finding much room to move but Brian Pol and Marcus
North Langley Bears quarterback Jaxon Stebbings was about to hand the ball off to running back Brian Pol during peewee football action Saturday at McLeod Stadium. The Bears were blanked 12-0 by the visiting Meadow Ridge Gold Knights. Stang had some great blocks and runs. Jaxon Stebbings made a couple of nice completions and Jesse Nielsen had a few impressive kick returns. Junior bantam Bears There was little to cheer about during the Bears 54-7 loss to the Abbotsford Falcons Saturday afternoon.
The Falcons used a punishing ground game to hammer a Bears team that was missing several key players to injury. The Falcons scored touchdowns on each of their first three possessions and never looked back. The lone bright spot for the Bears was Pablo Wigwigan’s spectacular 80-yard kickoff return for a touchdown in the second quarter.
Charlie May then connected with Connor Hurley on a nifty pass in the end zone for a successful convert. Flag Bears The Bears played Ridge Meadows on home turf over weekend. Langley won its first game 41, with Ryan Middleton, Cole Blaschuk, Sam Sieben, and Ben Evans scoring touchdowns. Keane Herd and Tristan Todd helped the defensive line hold off the opposition. It was a standoff in the second game, with the contest ending in a 2-2 tie. The Bears Rylan Middleton caught a pass for one touchdown and Tyson Craig ran for the second major. Kai Blaschuk was solid in snapping the ball.

Spartans near perfect in pre-season play
Host TWU finished with a 4-1 record during the West Coast Classic.
The Trinity Western University women’s volleyball team’s pre-season long win streak came to an end around midday Sunday at the Langley Events Centre. The Spartans fell in four sets to Calgary’s Mount Royal University Cougars in their final game of the West Coast Classic at the LEC. Scores were 25-23, 29-27, 20-25, and 25-14. TWU took 6-0 pre-season and 4-0 tournament records into the game following its thrilling five-set win over the York Lions Saturday at the LEC. The evening victory capped a winning Saturday for the Spartans, who swept Thompson Rivers University (TRU) in three sets that afternoon.
With her team trailing 11-6 in the fifth set against York, Spartans setter Lauren Moncks went to the serving line and, quite literally, served TWU to a win. With Moncks at the line, the Spartans earned nine straight points to pull out the five-set win. Scores were 25-15, 24-26, 25-20, 25-27, and 15-11. “We’re learning how to communicate better and some of the flaws came out against York,” Spartans coach Ryan Hofer said, following the match. “But we learned a little bit about the things we need to improve upon. Sophie Carpentier played really well tonight as did Alicia Perrin, who was playing on the right side. It was great to see the team work through the challenges of being down by a deficit in a fifth set. I’m really proud of the toughness and resolve they showed.”
Earlier in the day, the Spartans picked up a 3-0 win over TRU. Scores were 25-19, 25-12, and 25-12. “We had a good win over TRU this morning, and it was a good opportunity to cycle players through the lineup and gel as a team,” Hofer said late Saturday. The Spartans will now prepare for their regular season opener Oct. 25 when they will host sixtime defending CIS champion UBC. Game time is at 6 p.m. at the LEC.
