‘Stolen’ dogs died in hot truck The theft of six dogs was apparently a hoax, and all the animals died in a hot vehicle.
A small dog stood at the Langley off-leash park where a Delta dog walker claimed six dogs were stolen last week. The dogs were later found deceased in Abbotsford, and the theft appears to have been a hoax. People have been leaving messages of sympathy at the Langley park.

The SPCA is now investigating the tragic case of six dogs that were reported stolen last week, only to be found dead in Abbotsford. The theft was apparently a hoax to cover the accidental death of the animals. Langley RCMP and the SPCA are now investigating the case, looking at the woman who had charge of the dogs, one of which was her own. On Monday evening, the Langley RCMP confirmed that the Brookswood at about 1:30 p.m. She told local police and the dogs were dead and is looking at owners of the other five dogs an investigation involving public that she had loaded the dogs into mischief. the back of her canopied pickup “Police believe the six dogs truck, then gone to use the washperished in the back of the dog room. walker’s vehicle in the heat of In about 10 minutes, someone the day,” said Langley RCMP had taken them, Cpl.

people turned up for a rally on Thursday evening to pass out missing dog posters, including the dog walker. Alesha and Al MacLellan of Petsearchers Canada, who had been helping the search for the owners, said the dog walker confessed on Monday that the dogs died from heat exhaustion in the back of her truck. On the Petsearchers website, they reported that the dog walker told them she concocted the story about the theft in a blind panic. She was then going to speak to the Langley RCMP. The dogs were found and have now been recovered, said Lorie Chortyk, the BC SPCA’s manager of community relations. “We do have the bodies of the dogs,” Chortyk said Tuesday. All six of them will undergo a necropsy to determine how they
died. The SPCA, which has taken over the investigation into the dogs’ death, will be speaking with various people involved in the situation this week, Chortyk said. As the investigation is in an early stage, she couldn’t say much yet about the circumstances. Once evidence has been gathered, it will be presented to the B.C. Crown Counsel’s office to determine what charges may be laid. The Langley RCMP is helping the SPCA, and is running a separate investigation into public mischief over the apparently false report of the theft. Memorials for the dead dogs have popped up at the dog park in Brookswood, and a petition is circulating online to increase penalties for animal cruelty.
Teachers bring rotating strikes to Langley Parents are being asked not to send their kids to school but the buildings will be open. by Heather Colpitts firstname.lastname@example.org
Langley public schools will be behind picket lines Tuesday, May 27 as teachers enter phase 2 of their job action against the provincial government. Rotating strikes by BC Teachers’ Federation members will take place over four days starting Monday.
Langley School District 35 has sent a letter home to parents to explain the implications. “As a result of the strike action, teachers will not be reporting for duty. While school facilities will remain open under the supervision of school district administration, we will be unable to provide students with instruction or appropriate supervision during this period of job action. We are therefore requesting that parents keep their children at home,” said superintendent Suzanne Hoffman. The daycares and preschools that operate in Langley public schools will remain open and in operation but StrongStart Centre programs and facility rentals will be cancelled
for that day. District school buses will also not run that day. “It is the sincere hope of the Board of Education that this dispute will be concluded quickly and that normal school operations will resume as quickly as possible,” Hoffman added. The district will provide information updates through its website (www.sd35. bc.ca), on the district Facebook page and its Twitter feed, as well as providing the information to radio stations. The province and teachers are arguing over pay and class size and composition, as well as the length of the contract.

What’s Fun and food
Summer is always a challenging time for food banks. As the weather heats up, it seems food bank donations drop. Together, Save-On-Foods and Campbell Company of Canada are encouraging Langley residents to help those who rely on the support of the food bank through the Help Hunger Disappear program. The Willoughby Save-OnFoods at 20255 64th Ave. will host the food drive on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and all donations will go to the Langley Food Bank. In addition to the food drive, look for a fundraiser barbeque, car wash, and kids fun area. Nearly 100,000 British Columbians rely on their local food banks every month and approximately 30 per cent of the people needing help from food banks are children and youth. • More online

Murder suspect seen in Aldergrove A man who has vowed to stay on the run through the summer was last seen in Aldergrove. by Matthew Claxton

hunt by Langley RCMP in 2005, when he was wanted for a non-fatal shooting. An Emergency Response Team was deployed at one point that summer to surround a house after a tip was received that McQuarrie was inside. At the time, police described McQuarrie as a drug addict who was spiralling out of control, and said he was armed and dangerous. Before the 2005 shooting, he was already wanted for a number of crimes. After police caught McQuarrie in 2005, he was charged with aggravated assault, discharging a firearm with intent to wound, use of a firearm and possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose. He was found guilty and the victim recovered.

Wrong kind of bottle in vehicle with child Two mothers chose to drive drunk down Langley roads with their young children in their cars. by Matthew Claxton firstname.lastname@example.org
In half an hour, Langley RCMP found two drunk drivers on the same busy Walnut Grove street, both with children in their cars. On Friday at 5:40 p.m., a Traffic Section officers working along 88th Avenue spotted a woman heading eastbound while using her cellphone, said Cpl.
Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP. One of the officers approached her about the phone usage, and found she appeared to have been drinking. There was an open bottle of wine in the front passenger area. In the back seat was the 32year-old Langley woman’s eightyear-old daughter. The woman was less than cooperative with police, Marks said. The driver blew a fail reading on a roadside screening device, and was given an on-the-spot 90-day Immediate Roadside Prohibition. Her car was
impounded and she was given a ticket for using her cellphone while driving. At 6:10 p.m., one of the Traffic officers was called to a collision, also on 88th. A car had become stuck on the center median just west of Walnut Grove Drive. The 37-year-old Langley woman also appeared to have been drinking, and like the first woman, blew a fail reading on a screening device. Also like the first woman, her child, a seven-year-old girl, was in the car, in the front passenger seat. Again, police issued a 90-day Immediate Roadside Prhobition,
took her car away, and also gave her a violation ticket for not having auto insurance. “It likely goes without saying that there are a number of concerns here,” Marks said. “Of particular concern is both mothers were allegedly impaired by alcohol and chose to drive with their young children in the vehicle with them.” “It’s certainly troubling that we still have impaired drivers – even more so when they not only endanger themselves and others on the road but their own children are put in harm’s way,” said Insp. Rob de Boersap, the Langley Operations Officer.

Best friends best left home
Last week’s deaths of six family pets – in Richmond, as it turned out, and not at a dog off-leash park in Brookswood – serves as a tragic reminder of how quickly a vehicle can become an inescapably deadly trap for dogs. Indeed, it doesn’t even take a particularly hot day – and leaving the windows “open a crack” offers little mitigation. Furthermore, no amount of water is sufficient to stave off heat exhaustion and death when temperatures inside the vehicle – much hotter than outside temperatures – climb to unbearable levels in only minutes. If you’re skeptical, park your car, turn off your air conditioner and roll up the windows… and see how quickly you decide you need to throw open the door. See if opening the window “a crack” makes much difference. Now imagine the same exercise while wearing an overcoat you can’t remove. And consider that, if you were a dog, you would have little access to a natural cooling system that works particularly well for humans – you’d only be able to sweat from the palms of your hands and the soles of your feet. Panting is your only other means of expelling heat from your body. And your dog can’t open the door. If you must take your pet out for a ride, always be on guard for signs of heatstroke: heavy panting, uncharacteristic anxiety, unusual salivation, muscle tremors, and in more severe cases, vomiting, loss of coordination, convulsions, or collapse. If you see any of those symptoms, your dog may be in severe distress. Get him out of the car, cool him with water, especially let him lick something cold, like ice cream (but don’t put ice on his skin, as that actually slows cooling by reducing the blood supply to his extremities), and get him to a veterinarian. Better still, just leave your best friend at home, and if that makes you feel guilty, reward him with a treat when you return. – B.G.

A pile of cash found in a Langley credit card fraud factory has been seized by the province.
Customized Whitening for Life! SMILE BRIGHTER THIS SPRING
by Matthew Claxton firstname.lastname@example.org
The provincial government has officially seized $20,000 in cash found during a Langley RCMP raid five years ago. In September 2009, the local Mounties, with a search warrant, arrived at a home in the 19700 block of 84th Avenue in Willoughby. Inside, they found a stash of drugs, including cocaine or methamphetamine, ecstasy and marijuana, and the prescription drugs diazepam and ketamine. Police also seized digital scales, a cash counter, a laptop computer, more than $400 in American cash, and items used to manufacture fake credit cards, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP.

What’s in Store
Several business busy helping charitable causes What’s in
The Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce is gearing up to host an evening network session, a governance workshop, and its annual golf tournament. The chamber is preparing for Open Late For Business. This time out Storage For Your Life is inviting business people to discover the company’s
flagship location at 200th Street and 88th Avenue May 29. This networking session – complete with tours, games, prizes, and snacks – runs 4:30-6:30 p.m. While the event is complimentary, those attending are required to RSVP for catering reasons by contacting the chamber at 604-530-6656 or events@ langleychamber.com. • There’s still room for a few foursomes in the 2014 Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce golf tournament – or at least there was a few days back. This year’s event is at Pagoda Ridge Golf
Course on 264th Street in Aldergrove, with a tailgate brunch and registration at 9:30 a.m., and a shotgun start at 11 a.m. Regardless of your skill level, this Texas-scramble tournament is a blast – 18 holes, great food, and a plethora of prizes. The $175 fee also includes a barbecue dinner. Act fast because this event always sells out. • The chamber is hosting a workshop designed for the not-for-profits. Larry Nelson, current vice-chair of the board of the Terminal City Club in Vancouver, has served on more than 10 not-for-profit
boards, and will share his wisdom on how to make the most of a board during this workshop. This seminar runs from 4 to 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, June 5 at the Langley Seniors’ Resource Centre. The cost is $35 for chamber members, $45 for non-members, including a light supper. Pre-registration is required by calling the chamber office at 604-5306656 or emailing events@ langleychamber.com. • Speaking of boards of directors, the chamber is looking for candidates for its 2014-15 board.

Candidates must be chamber members in good standing, and if you’re among those interested in possibly putting your name forward, it’s recommended you have a chat with executive director Lynn Whitehouse. She’s an invaluable resource given her years of experience with the chamber. She can fill you in on the directors responsibilities, time commitments, as well as positions available. Lynn can be reached at 604-530-6656 for more details and/or nomination forms. Nominations must be delivered in writing to the chamber’s Glover Road office before 5 p.m. on Monday, June 9.
Credit union board
In keeping on the topic of board members and elections, the Aldergrove Credit Union recently picked itself a new director. And that newest board member, Sylvia Allenby, hails from Langley. She joins incumbents Angie McDougall and Eric Popma who were elected by acclamation on May 7. Allenby took over the seat of long-term director Dale Larson, who retired after 28 years on the board, explained the credit
union’s CEO Gus Hartl. “Allenby has extensive management experience in human resources, finance and sales, and as general manager of the Langley Golf Centre, she has deep roots in our community,” Hartl said.

Thanks in part to M&M Meats Shops customers at the Willowbrook and Walnut Grove stores, more than $1 million has been raised to help people living with Crohn’s and colitis. This company – for the 26th year running – held its charity barbecue day to raise money to help find a cure for Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, and to improve the lives of children and adults living with the chronic diseases. The stores across Canada have raised more than $25 million for the cause.
Heart and stroke
Events at Willowbrook Shopping Centre last month translated to more than $9,000 towards building a healthier society. Between the Easter Bunny photos that netted $6,378 and $2,766 in donations made during Earth Week, the mall was able to contribute serious coin to the Heart & Stroke Foundation. “The funds will go to the Heart & Stroke Foundation to improve the health of Canadians to live a healthier tomorrow,” said marketing director Meghan McCrea.
Pellet gun-wielding man gives himself up
A Langley man armed with a pellet gun drew the ERT to a standoff Friday night in Langley City. by Matthew Claxton firstname.lastname@example.org
A man who had shot himself with a pellet gun caused a police incident Friday night after he barricaded himself into a shed in Langley City. Just before 6 p.m., Langley RCMP were called to a domestic disturbance on 207th Street. The man had wounded himself with the pellet gun, and after police arrived, he barricaded himself into a shed, alone, on his property. Police brought in the Lower Mainland Emergency Response Team and the Police Dog Services team to help, and firefighters and BC Ambulance paramedics were also standing by. The man gave himself up without further incident later that evening, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP. His pellet gun wound was non-life threatening, but he was taken to hospital for treatment. Client Support and Victim Services were on hand to offer help to the family members affected by the incident. Traffic down 207th Street between 53rd and 56th Avenues was temporarily re-routed during the police standoff.

Polak offers newspapers option
Mary Polak said there may be relief for the newspaper industry from recycling regulations. by Matthew Claxton email@example.com
Recycling was on the minds of people speaking to MLA Mary Polak at the Tuesday night meeting of the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce. Polak, the MLA for Langley and the minister for the environment, spoke about the balancing act between the environment and the budget. After her speech, she took questions from the floor, including one from the chamber’s longtime executive director, Lynn Whitehouse, who asked about the new Multi Material BC (MMBC) recycling program. “The print media is going to pay a huge price,” Whitehouse said. She asked if there was anything being done to provide relief to the print journalism industry. “We’re not at an answer yet, but I think we’re a lot closer,” said Polak.

She noted that although the MMBC program came into effect on May 19, there are no plans to immediately fine anyone for noncompliance. The province is also trying to improve communications from MMBC, Polak Matthew Claxton/Langley Advance said. MLA Mary Polak spoke at the While the MMBC group Greater Langley Chamber of has been drawing criticism, Commerce dinner meeting May 20. it isn’t necessarily the only way to participate in the program, Polak said.

expects to see competition among stewardship groups, she said, as there is in the systems in Europe. One area where there isn’t a level playing field yet is between provinces. Asked about why costs are so much higher for producers in B.C. than in Ontario, Polak said it’s because Ontario hasn’t moved fully into a producer-pay system. The municipal governments there are still taking up much of the cost. She pointed to new regulations passed Tuesday that will exempt certain small businesses and charitable organizations that only produce small amounts of packaging and paper. During her speech, Polak talked about balancing the needs of maintaining a balanced budget versus demands from the various social programs across the province. She touched on efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across the province, expected increases in forestry and mining activity, and the export of liquid natural gas (LNG) to China. “They [China] have aggressive plans in reducing their reliance on coal,” said Polak.

Little ones unhurt from attack WOLF hosts forest
A woman kicked a toddler and pushed a pre-schooler to the ground, police say. by Matthew Claxton email@example.com
A woman allegedly attacked a baby, a two-year-old, and a four-yearold after the children’s mother asked her to stop swearing on a bus in Langley Tuesday. At about 10:20 a.m., a woman boarded the bus and began arguing with the bus driver when she failed to pay the fare. The woman’s profane language led to several other passengers asking her to stop swearing around children,
said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP. The suspect then threatened to kill one of the other passengers, and her three children, Marks said. She threw a drink at the youngest child, a boy not yet a year old. A fight began between the two women, who both then were apparently ordered off the bus by the driver. A video taken by another passenger and posted online shows the mother punching the suspect after the drink-throwing. The victim tried to walk away towards the Willowbrook Shopping Centre with her children. The suspect pulled a knife, chased after the victim, knocked over the four-year-old girl and kicked the twoyear-old girl in the back, police say.
The two-year-old had a red mark from the kick but was not seriously injured. The mother was scraped up a bit during the fight but was not stabbed or seriously hurt. When officers received the report about the attack, a description of the suspect was broadcast to nearby RCMP detachments. A Surrey RCMP officer recognized the description and drove to the home of a 43-year-old woman. She was in custody by 10:40 a.m., said Marks. The suspect was held in custody overnight and has been taken to Surrey Provincial Court for a hearing on Wednesday afternoon. Police are recommending charges of assault, assault with a weapon and uttering threats.

tours May 24 & 31 Aldergrove residents are hosting awareness events and tours of a small local forest. by Matthew Claxton
Aldergrove residents trying to preserve a Langley Township-owned forest from development will be holding tours and community events for the next two Saturdays. The Aldergrove residents are working with Watchers of Langley Forests (WOLF) to raise awareness about the area dubbed the Creekside forest on the southestern edge of urban Aldergrove. While some of the trees along the creek are to be preserved, WOLF’s members fear it won’t remain an intact ecosystem. The land has been rezoned to allow the creation of a new subdivision. On May 24 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. members of WOLF will give free guided tours of the forest, starting from Creekside Park at 28th Avenue and 274th Street, near the bridge that crosses Bertrand Creek. The tours will be an opportunity for the public to see this little piece of wilderness for themselves, said Kirk Robertson of WOLF. On May 31, there will be tours and a family-friendly event at the Aldergrove Athletic Park under the covered picnic area. Information about the proposed development and a petition against it will be available. There will be face painting, crafts and games for the kids, and Harriet the Owl will appear for about an hour in the morning, with visitors able to take their pictures with her for $5. Money raised will be donated to WOLF. There will be hot dogs and beverages served at lunch time by donation.

A stressful position for an artist Langley resident, cinematographer, and producer Amy Belling has her first feature film showing. by Ronda Payne email@example.com
p for seven Leo awards, Stress Position is Langley resident Amy Belling’s first feature film as a cinematographer and producer. The film, in all it’s disturbing glory, has also received awards from the Las Vegas Film Festival, the Lady Filmmakers Film Festival, and other international acclaim. Belling isn’t just any producer. She’s already stacked up a number of awards and earned her masters from the American Film Institute in L.A. These accomplishments came after her elementary school years at Noel Booth and high school at Brookswood Secondary School. “At Brookswood Secondary we had the most amazing video production and theatre teacher, Ms. Dawne Tomlinson – AKA Ms. T – who inspired us all to always reach for the stars and follow our dreams,” Belling said. “Through her creative and technical teaching of video production, I got started shooting, writing, directing, producing and editing my own short films, experimental videos, music videos, and a TV show that aired in B.C. and Ontario called BackStreet.” After high school, Belling com-
pleted a double major in film production and theatre at UBC, where she met A.J. Bond. Stress Position is about torture – of the psychological kind – where director Bond and long-time friend and actor David Amito explore mental cruelty of the most severe degree. The rules in this mash up of reality TV and horror are simple: No severe pain, no permanent physical damage, nothing illegal. “[It was] really different than any other film I had ever been

a part of creating because these were people playing themselves and working from a 30 page treatment where dialogue and scenes were improvised instead of scripted,” Belling said. The two spar against each other in creating personalized tortures to break the other’s will. “A.J. pitched the idea of Stress
Position to me, as we were tossing around ideas for a very micro-budget feature film to make,” Belling said. “…it would require one location, three actors and limited crew. The very controversial nature of the premise had me hooked: Inspired by a flippant remark about the treatment of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, filmmaker A.J. Bond made a bet with his close friend and longtime collaborator, actor David Amito, to see which of them could withstand a week of psychological torture at the hands of the other.” One film reviewer, William Brownridge of the Toronto Film Scene, went as far as to say the film is, “Truly physiologically terrifying.” As the Leo awards ceremony approaches, The Siblings (the company formed by Bond and Belling) decided to have a
Vancouver release and premiere party. If it weren’t clear enough from the preamble above, this is definitely a time to leave the kids, and gentle adults, at home. “I gravitate towards narratives that are somewhat dark,” Belling commented. “For I desire to expose aspects of human nature that cause the viewer to reassess their perspective on the world. I like films to startle an audience with new thoughts and images, and leave a lasting visual memory in the mind of its audience long after the credits roll.” The release screening of Stress Position will be held at Vancity Theatre (1181 Seymour St., Vancouver) together with another bizarre, psychological Canadian feature film, Cruel & Unusual, which was shot primarily in Langley at such locations as the closed Aldergrove Elementary School, Williams Park, and a variety of local residences. Cruel & Unusual is also up for a number of Leo awards.

Bond’s next film, and are looking for financial partners to work with us and the Canadian Film Centre to bring it to production. I am also in post-production on another feature film that I produced and shot,” Belling said. “A lot of what we do as independent filmmakers is looking for investors to partner with to tell these stories.” Cruel & Unusual premieres on May 24 with additional showings the day after Stress Position.

Local author completes trilogy
With the third book in her Water series launching on Saturday, Langley’s Doris Riedweg contemplates putting her pen down. by Ronda Payne firstname.lastname@example.org
Doris Riedweg has a lot on the go. The octogenarian is preparing for Saturday’s launch of her latest book, Wellspring of Love and a book signing at the Langley Chapters location in June.

Riedweg’s books are available at Chapters, the Langley Memorial Hospital gift shop, through Riedweg’s publisher – White Rock based Libros Libertad Publishing – infolibroslibertad@shaw. ca, or through the author at email@example.com. “He’s a small publisher,” she said of Libros Libertad. “But he’s been very good to me.” Riedweg is an active member of the local writing community as well, and serves as the current president of the Langley Writers’ Guild. “I’ve been the president for three years of the Langley Writers’ Guild,” she noted. “I’ve been in the Guild for about 18 years now.” The cover on this latest book incorporates a painting by Susanne Lansonius, a fellow member of the
Guild and a fellow octogenarian. “I’ve had pretty good responses to my book launches,” Riedweg noted when asked about her upcoming launch and book signing. The launch is this Saturday from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. at the Langley City Library in City Hall at 204th St. and Douglas Cres. Refreshments will be served and RSVPs can be made to Riedweg at firstname.lastname@example.org or 604534-3384. The book signing at the Langley location of Chapters is scheduled for June 21 from 2 to 5 p.m. Will Riedweg hang up her pen for good? It’s unlikely as she has already her sights on another project. “I do write short stories and perhaps, I’ll probably do that,” she said. “I’d really like to assemble an anthology but mainly for family. That’s what my plan is for now.”

City adds glass recycling to curbside options Glass recycling starts this month for Langley City but it means another curbside bin. by Heather Colpitts email@example.com
Langley City single family home residents will have another recycling bin to put out each week, this one for glass. Until now the City has not allowed glass jars and bottles in the single-stream recycling. “Glass easily breaks during collection and, when the broken pieces mix with paper and other containers, it becomes difficult to properly recycle these materials,” said Rick Bomhof, the City’s director of Engineering, Parks and Environment. “This means that less glass – and less of the other material – is recycled. By separating it, we recycle more and send less to the landfill.” Starting May 19, resi-
dents will be able to recycle glass bottles and jars and a bunch of other items. Curbside recycling now accepts plastic plant pots and seedling trays, aluminum foil, aerosol cans and caps, spiral wound paper cans (such as powered hot chocolate mix containers) and ice cream boxes. New 60-litre lime green bins for glass collection, along with a recycling information brochure, will be delivered to City single family homes starting the second week in May. Multi-family complexes that have opted into weekly glass collection service will receive a 240-litre cart for glass collection the first week of June. Multi-family glass collection will begin June 17. Between May 19 (when the MMBC packaging and printed paper program launches) and June 17 (when multi-family glass collection begins), multi-family residents are asked to either take their non-refundable glass bottles and jars to an MMBC

The City’s recycling, organics and garbage collection schedules will not change. For now Emterra will continue to do City garbage and recycling collection. As of Jan. 1, 2015, Multi Material BC, a consortium that includes Emterra, will take over operation of the City’s recycling program. The City will retain control of the garbage and kitchen organics/greenwaste. MMBC and the City have not announced what the costs will be for these changes.

Even people who don’t normally grow vegetables find the notion of picking their own fresh, ripe tomatoes quite irresistible. Nurseries offer lots of transplants and some will be marked as being ideal for containers. ‘Tumbler’ is ideal for hanging baskets because its branches droop over the sides for fast ripening and easy picking. The long vines of grape tomatoes also droop and fruit thickly with small, but very sweet tomatoes. People with only a sunny windowsill might be interested in Tiny Tim, which usually grows just 30 centimetres (12 inches) tall. Generally, cherry tomatoes are more disease resistant than most others. After a few warm days, it’s tempting to put young tomato plants outside – but they still need to be kept warm because our
coastal weather is unreliable in spring, and nights are still cold. Plastic milk cartons or polycarbonate juice bottles (with tops removed so hot air can escape) make good (free) cloches that protect young plants. But several kinds of reusable and reasonably priced commercial cloches are available in clear plastic. Row covers in spun fabric or plastic are available for tomatoes grown outside. Greenhouses are the very best growing area for tomatoes. But containers against a wall under a south or west roof overhang yield enough to make people many delicious summer salads. An alternative for people with gardens is to try blight-resistant tomatoes (they are the result of conventional breeding). None are 100 per cent resistant, but when I tried them in my garden, blight started exceptionally late and moved very slowly. The blight-resistant beefsteak tomato ‘Legend’ has been available as transplants, and seed is available online. ‘Defiant’ is another large blight-resistant tomato available from seed. Both are bush types.
Large blight-resistant cherry tomatoes include ‘Mountain Magic’ and ‘Mountain Merit.’ In choosing tomato transplants or seeds, it’s important to clue in to the difference between determinate (bush) tomato plants and indeterminate ones. Bush tomatoes produce all their fruit at the same time, then stop flowering. They are the best for containers, because they’re easy to manage. Indeterminate (vine) tomatoes don’t stop growing till frost. Suckers need to be pinched off frequently. If you don’t do that, a vining tomato plant will become a huge bush in which tomatoes are deeply shaded and slow to ripen. At summer’s end, you’ll have a few handfuls of ripe tomatoes, while zillions of green ones remain. The practical way to prune vine tomatoes is to leave the first three or four suckers. That’s because these should have time to flower and produce ripe tomatoes. But the later ones should be removed. Tomatoes are very greedy feeders. They’ll have lots to eat if you mix
bonemeal and compost or rotted manure into their planting holes. They like frequent watering, too.
Later, a mulch of aged manure and/or grass clippings helps to hold moisture around the plants. It’s useful to know that contact with soil triggers tomato stems to put out roots. That’s why many gardeners plant tomatoes sideways with the top inch or two out in the sun. It produces a stronger plant and makes it easier to protect on cold nights.

On Cooking by Chef Dez
Although men have been assigned the stereotype of working the backyard barbecue, it is a joy that is shared by all home culinary enthusiasts. It’s a summertime passion. The smoky essence of smouldering charcoal starts my mouth watering as my mind conjures up recollections of flame-licked meats, and fire caramelized vegetables. With a few basic tips, you can overcome any barbequing intimidation you may have. Overcooking lean meats is the most common mistake made, as people want to ensure that meat is fully cooked before serving. Although it is imperative for poultry and ground meats to be fully cooked, this does not give you the right to transform them into dry, charred remains. Brining can help protect light-meat poultry and lean pork. This is a technique that involves soaking in a salt-water solution for a period of time prior to cooking. Not only does it add moisture to the centre of the meat, but also seasoning, as the salt-saturated water is drawn in. A simple brining formula would be: one quarter cup table salt dissolved in four cups of water for pieces of poultry or lean pork. Let the meat sit in the brine for at least one hour in the refrigerator. Remove from the brine, pat them dry, and cook as you normally would. This brining process will provide a moisture protection shield to help keep fully cooked meats juicy. However, it is only a safeguard – overcooking is still possible, but this lessens the chance.
The only other consideration you may need to give your recipe is the amount of seasoning. The meat will already be seasoned somewhat from the salt in the brine, so back off on the saltshaker. Try this technique the next time you are barbequing chicken breasts, pork chops, pork tenderloins or pork loins. You will be impressed with the results. Any salt can be used: kosher, sea, etc. The important aspect is to ensure that the granules are the same size as table salt. A coarser grind will result in less salt per equal measure, as more air trapped between the larger particles. It is important to mention that this is the simplest form of brine: water and salt. There are many more complex recipes available on the internet that will bring flavour and moisture, but this easy brine is a straightforward starting point. Another essential point to bring up is that red meats are typically not brined; marinating is better for red meats, but that’s slated for another column topic.

5-year Custom Blend Mortgage
5 9 2% blended rate
Dear Chef Dez:
I love barbequed chicken with the skin on, however it always seems to get burned on the outside well before the centre gets cooked. I know many people cook skinless chicken pieces and they have no problem, but I enjoy having the skin on. However, the fat from the skin promotes flare-ups, and thus gets burned. How can I avoid this without losing my enjoyment of having the skin? Dear Tracey:
Tracey S., Abbotsford
Indirect heat is the way to go to conquer this problem. When using direct heat (with the flames directly below the meat) the skin will drip fat onto the flames and cause flare-ups, and thus create excessive burning. Depending on what type of barbeque you have, setting it up for indirect cooking will be different. Many ceramic charcoal BBQs will have a ceramic plate for heat diffusion, while gas grills will mostly rely on having a burner turned off under the meat and closing the lid. This will utilize the heat from the other burners to do the job.

Japanese Knotweed Roadside Control Strategy
Japanese Knotweed is an invasive species whose root system has the potential to ruin home foundations, roads, parking lots, sewerage, and water main infrastructure. The Township of Langley is working to eliminate the threat of this invasive plant. You may see markers along various roads identifying where Japanese Knotweed is located. Do not remove the plants or mow these areas. Improper removal of the plant could result in the plant reproducing rapidly or spreading further. The Roads Department is spraying a mild herbicide to control the Japanese Knotweed. The removal process will take several treatments and inspections throughout the year. After the roots are killed, the plant stock will be removed and discarded safely. For more information on the roadside control program, contact: Engineering Division 604.533.6006 tol.ca/invasive
Water Main Flushing
As part of our maintenance program, the municipal Water Department will be flushing water mains within the dates shown below. Water main flushing is weather dependant and we are unable to provide a specific date for when it will occur in your area. As a result of this flushing, you may notice changes in water pressure and there may be some discolouration or sediment in the water. This is a temporary condition and is not a health hazard. To avoid inconvenience, please check the water before doing laundry and you may wish to keep water in the refrigerator for drinking and cooking.
Trees can still be removed if they are blocking sightlines under the Township’s highway and traffic bylaw or if they are in an area approved by provincial regulation for a septic field or water well. Trees may be removed if necessary for the construction of a building, if approved by a development permit, development variance permit, or building permit issued by the Township of Langley. Trees can also be removed if they are hazardous, as certified by an arborist, or in case of an emergency, if certification is received by the Township Engineer within 30 days of the cutting.
People in Aldergrove, Brookswood/Fernridge, Langley City, Fort Langley or Walnut Grove can book free transportation by calling the Township at 604856-2899 by May 28.

Within 2 days I saw my skin clearing up. I’m speechless. It was #60 NPN 80044199 inexpensive compared with what I spent before. Jessica Shantz, 25, Dawson Creek, BC ECZEMA For 6 years my family doctor and dermatologist tried many medications and creams. After taking Bell Help for Skin Disorders for just a few days my eczema itching stopped and my face started to clear up. After suffering so long I am amazed with the results.

are a modern epidemic
By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD. What people experience: !I tried numerous other remedies all my life that were not effective. Since I discovered Bell Allergy Relief. I do not have a stuffy nose and itchy eyes when pollen season comes around. I don’t have to walk around like a doped zombie anymore. Leonard Waldner, 44, Delia, AB ! For 20 years my life was miserable with sneezing, watery eyes and sinus pressure yearround on most days. I was amazed. #24 NPN 80043542 On 3rd day all allergies were gone. It was like magic. Becky Gerber, 25, Dover, OH !Golfing without allergy attacks I tried all the medications and none worked. After taking 1 capsule in the morning I’m completely free of all symptoms. Richard Gamez, 74, San Antonio, TX morning. Therese Noto, 58, New York, NY.
As recommended by Dr. GiffordJones M. D. Helps to reduce the time it takes to fall a sleep. In most cases also stops snoring and gasping for air (sleep apnea) first night. Stops torturing your partner all night. Good sleep prevents being tired next day. Tired people work only at half capacity. What people truly experience: ! I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, #23 NPN 80045172 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 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. Try your local health food stores first.

Caitlin Sikma (far right of the Credo Christian Kodiaks raised her arms after scoring a header goal off a corner kick against the D.W. Poppy Redhawks, during a Fraser Valley playoff game last Thursday, May 15. The goal stood up as the winner as the Kodiaks blanked the Redhawks 1-0. With the win, the Kodiaks advanced to the Fraser Valley semifinal round, the first time in Credo Christian school history that a Grade 8/9 girls team has accomplished this feat. The Kodiaks went on to lose to top-ranked Sullivan Heights on Tuesday, and will play Cloverdale’s Lord Tweedsmuir today (May 22) to determine third and fourth place in the Fraser Valley. Kickoff at Cloverdale Athletic Park is 3 p.m. Also Thursday, Sullivan Heights faces Princess Margaret in the final.
