Cancer survivors in yellow T-shirts took the first lap with their families and supporters.

The Relay for Life raised more than a quarter million dollars in Langley this year. by Matthew Claxton

The 2013 Langley Relay for Life brought in more than $290,000 for the Canadian Cancer Society by the end of the 12-hour event Saturday. Starting Friday night at 7 p.m., 94 teams with more than 770 participants started taking turns to circle the track at the McLeod Athletic Park. Malcolm Shields, 10, broke all kinds of records as he raised money in honour of his six-yearold brother Jack’s fight with leukemia. Malcom had raised more than $35,000 by the time the Relay began. His team, from Glenwood Elementary School, was the top team, largely due to Malcolm’s efforts. “That’s the highest individually, by a fair amount, in the history of our relay, and the highest team,” said volunteer Relay chair Howie Vickberg. Previous top individual fundraisers have collected in the range of $10,000 to $12,000. It was Jack who cut the ribbon to start the survivor’s lap, the

Bands including Other Side of Five played during the evening. first lap of the event at 7 p.m. Jack was carried around the track on his father Jody’s shoulders, at the head of a vast group of cancer survivors wearing bright yellow shirts. Volunteers and participants had been casting a wary eye on the sky all day, after a deluge on Thursday. “We didn’t have sunshine when we were setting up this morning,” said Vickberg. While Friday dawned cloudy, by the time teams took to the track, the sun was out, and not a drop of rain came down during the event. Peter Kingston, a vice-president with the Canadian Cancer Society, came to the opening of the event to thank the relayers for their donations over nine years of the local Relay for Life.

“Already, it has changed the survival rates for cancer,” he said. “Your presence here does make a difference.” He also presented Vickberg with an award for his volunteering. Along with a plaque, he got a T-shirt that dubbed him a “Relay walkin’ prevention talkin’ luminary lightin’ cancer fightin’ creator of more survivors.” Every year, the Relay for Life features a cancer survivor as a speaker, and this year it was Elaine McLeod, recovering her health after being treated for stage three ovarian cancer. She’s reminded of her survivor status every time she hears of a a friend or acquaintance who has lost their battle with the disease, said McLeod. “I don’t want to be marked by

Her son told her that “cancer survivors are not pushovers,” McLeod said. With other survivors, she rang a large gong to mark the end of her lap. McLeod said before starting she planned to ring it “with gusto.” Relayers were up from 7 p.m. on Friday to before 6 a.m. on Saturday morning. While not walking the track, there were scavenger hunts, a tug of war, live bands, and an outdoor screening of Back to the Future. Shannon Todd-Booth of the Cancer Society said the feedback was excellent, thanks to lots of new teams, a refurbished stadium, and changes to the lineup of live bands and the first ever movie.

Candle-lit luminaries in the stands spelled out Hope and Cure after dark.

Four hurt when unmarked cruiser hits car Four people were hurt, including a civilian driver and an RCMP officer, Sunday. by Matthew Claxton

An unmarked RCMP vehicle crashed into a civilian car early Sunday morning, sending the civilian driver to hospital with serious injuries. The RCMP officer and two passengers in the silver sedan were also injured. At 2:01 a.m., the RCMP vehicle was heading south on 200th Street, responding to a complaint, said a statement from the Independent Investigations Office (IIO), which is looking into the crash. The car collided with a Toyota that reportedly pulled out of Brydon Crescent.

Heather Colpitts/Langley Advance

Independent investigators are looking into the collision of an unmarked police car and a civilian vehicle on June 23. A 35-year-old man who was in the Toyota had to be extracted from the car by Langley City firefighters using hydraulic equipment, and was airlifted to hospital from the parking lot of Langley Mall. He remained in hospital on Monday, said the IIO. A 33-year-old in the car and the RCMP officer were treated and released from hospital.

Police closed off 200th Street in both directions until almost 9 a.m. for an investigation. The IIO was called in less than an hour after the crash and sent four investigators. A traffic reconstructionist will be helping to work on the scene, said the IIO. The IIO investigates incidents in which anyone is injured or

Encouraging visits pays off

Charging parking fees at hospitals is more than an inconvenience. It’s more than a minor annoyance for folks visiting loved ones confined to a hospital bed. Let’s face it, even without those parking fees, hospital visits are not generally joyful experiences that people look forward to. Much as we all wish to support our friends and loved ones in need, most of us would rather they didn’t need that kind of support – we’d rather they didn’t need to be in the hospital in the first place. But they do need to be there, and when they are in hospital, we do want – and need – to support Email with them. It has been shown that supportive visits from friends and family have a significant positive impact on hospital patients’ health outcomes. Consequently, something as seemingly inconsequential as a fee to park in the hospital lot turns out not to be inconsequential at all. It affects the health of patients who need the comfort of loved ones around them – especially loved ones who can’t find change or understand the nuances of pay parking procedures under the stress of an emergency situation. Perhaps most importantly, it’s deceitful. Only a third of the money collected from the parking lots at Fraser Health Authority hospitals actually goes to maintaining the parking structure. Of the $14 million in parking fees collected in the past year by Fraser Health (about $19 million the year before), more than $8 million goes into the FHA’s operating budget. Those $8 million are actually hidden user fees – and in an honest environment, would be openly recognized as such. Or it should be openly acknowledged as a part of the provincial tax structure. It’s a drop in the bucket of the province’s multi-billion-dollar health care budget. But it means a lot to people who just want to pay a supportive visit. – B.G.

Proud to be a humble Canadian

An admission of pure, dumb luck, after all, is so much more palatable than an intimation of pride, which is, after all, kissing cousin to arrogance. And whatever else we may be – whatever minor shortcomings we may fail to Bob Groeneveld admit to ourselves – we most certainly are not arrogant. So let’s throw that all behind us.

More than horse versus cars

Dear Editor, Campbell Valley Park is a nature park. Just under 700,000 people, of which 100,000 were horseback riders, used the park last year. People come to walk, hike, jog, dog walk, bird watch, photograph nature, listen to the birds sing, and

enjoy the quiet, tranquil beauty of the park. The park is a refuge from the noise and fast pace of today’s life. Metro Vancouver’s Environment and Parks Committee staff have reported that Langley Speedway is incompatible with the mandate of the park, and it will cost hundreds of thousands

Racing cars

Speedway in neighbourhood

Dear Editor, I read with interest the pros and cons of re-establishing a speedway at Campbell Valley Park. Why bother, when that facility is functo the tioning already. Where? You may ask. The answer is on 44th Avenue, between 208th and 212th Streets. A few years ago, Langley Township City Council okayed the development of a number of homes on cul-de-sacs north of 44th. Most are most attractive and desirable addresses. A new Fundamental School was established on 212th Street, and frequently the route to that is down 44th Avenue, morning and afternoon. The result is that 44th is choked with traffic most days, and is the route home at night for many speeding cars and souped-up motorbikes whose drivers show their prowess with enhanced exhaust pipes. It’s our fault for living where we do, agreed. But will the Township consider a couple of inexpensive speed bumps, perhaps, even if we unfortunates living on this street are charged for them? Mike Harvey, Langley



of dollars to do all the studies and public consultations just to see if the speedway should operate in this neighbourhood. Many other user groups have letters of opposition to the speedway proposal presented to the committee, and which can be read on the Metro Vancouver website under the May 16 meeting of the Environment/ Parks Committee. The reasons Langley Speedway lost its lease in the 1980s are as valid today as back then, plus today we are more conscious of the environmental impact that operating a race track would have on the sensitive ecosystem that supports the habitat of several threatened species located in the area of the old asphalt track. Then there are the people who live around the park, who would have to put up with the noise and traffic for 14 Saturdays during the best time of the year. People have bought around the park because of the park’s amenities and quiet nature of the neighbourhood. There is more to this issue than horses vs. race cars. K. Shaw, Langley


TransLink’s comments worrisome

No science in climate change

Dear Editor, Instead of using logic and “science,” as they claim, Mr. Evanochko [Good answers to deniers’ question, May 28 Letters, Langley Advance], Mr. Erbacher [Denying climate change easy, June 4 Letters, Advance], as well as Mr. Harvey [Denier offered climate tour, May 23 Letters, Advance], seek to put the messenger in a negative light. There is something going on with our climate, but it is not as they say. There are scientists who do not believe that the earth is heating up. Have they ever thought to see if they might be right? I can remember quite clearly that, in 1975, on the front page of The Province, in bold headlines, we were told a “new ice age is coming.” Of course, it is only people who think like they do (Evanochko, Erbacher, and Harvey) who have the intelligence to think “scientifically.” The rest of us are malladjusted and unable to think logically. At no time did they ever attempt to answer my questions, but heaped scorn on what I said. It’s easy to point to the catastrophic weather patterns and call it all global warming! Mr. Evanochko states that, for the first time in “three million years…” How does he know that? Was he there? It’s a free country. He and others can believe it if they want to, but I don’t think it makes much sense. So don’t push their phony “science” on the rest of us. Herr Goebels said that, if you tell a lie often enough, people will accept it as truth. David J. Standcumbe, Walnut Grove

The construction of the roundabout will continue until the end of July. Some single lane alternating traffic may be required during night work activities but as always, delays to the travelling public will be minimized.

seniors and disabled people. Trip denials for HandyDART doubled from 2011 to 2013 to over 38,000 denials. TransLink’s pilot project results in the slashing of up to 28 HandyDART jobs and forcing HandyDART riders to ride with under-trained taxi drivers. It is an affront to those who deserve safe public transportation. Mr. Kelsey makes a worrisome statement: “Customers receive a trip by taxi only if it is appropriate for their mobility requirements.” That means, if the trend of denials doesn’t increase and if 7,000 additional trips are met, there will be more than 30,000 denied trips, and the only people who will benefit will be those who are deemed with “appropriate mobility requirements,” concentrating the lack of service hours to the backs of those with the least ability speak out. Mark Beeching, Langley [Note: A fuller version of this letter is online at www. Click on Opinion, or search the writer’s name.]

During the night of June 27-28 2013, the new roundabout traffic pattern will be put into effect. All traffic on both 232 Street and 72 Avenue will have to drive around the new traffic circle. The new traffic pattern will be marked with traffic barrels and flashers and traffic control personnel will be onsite to assist during construction activities as required.

Church breaks ground on Murrayville facilities By Roxanne Hooper

Eight years after buying a Willoughby property near the freeway, the Seventh Day Adventist Church broke ground on a new church site this month. It will triple the size of the existing facilities in Aldergrove – but it’s not in the planned location. It’s fair to say the church ran into a “little unforeseen hurdle,” when planning to build its new facility, said Pastor David Jamieson. The Aldergrove church, best known in the community for all its Acts of Kindness projects including the Extreme Home Repair, outgrew its existing 28th Avenue site almost a decade ago, Jamieson explained. In 2004, the decision was made to relocate and build a new church. By 2005, a committee tasked with finding a new home had discovered what was thought to be the perfect 7.25acre site on 86th Avenue near 200th Street in Langley. It seemed ideal for its future needs, or so members of the church thought. The planning committee negotiated what Jamieson described as an “excellent” purchase agreement,” and planning began in earnest for a new church that would house not

only the expanding Aldergrove SDA, but also the Langley SDA congregation after the two churches or online merged in January 2006. It was a short time later, however – as the church began working on building plans and making necessary rezoning applications to the Township of Langley – that they ran into a snag. It turned out the provincial government was also interested in the same site, for what has since become the new Carvolth transit exchange and park and ride. “Negotiations took five years,” Jamieson explained, noting they finally received a cheque in 2010 and again began their search for a new home. In February 2011, they purchased another property. This 5.1-acre site is located at 23589 Old Yale Rd. – sandwiched between Fraser Highway and Old Yale. Jamieson is confident it will become the new church site. Again, waiting for all the necessary government approval and rezoning required, it wasn’t until earlier this month that the church received the go ahead to build a 60,000-square-foot worship and community outreach centre in Murrayville. That occasion was marked by a ground-breaking and dedication ceremony held June 9. The new church is expected to open in about 16 months, with prep work starting on the site this week.

The Seventh Day Adventists are moving to a new, 60,000-square-foot church and community centre.

“For eight years the church has been waiting for this moment,” Jamieson said. The existing Aldergrove SDA building was built on a 2.5-acre site in the 1980s, and served the community well, Jamieson said. But he said it’s no longer adequate. Recognizing the congregation is already reaching close to 800, with about 550 of those in attendance at services regularly, he said the new design includes a 900-seat worship centre that is also being designed to accommodate community concerts and events. More over, the church members also

envision adding more counselling facilities, an education centre with 12 classrooms/meeting rooms available to the community, and possibly even a doctor’s office. Added to that, Jamieson said, there are plans to develop or enhance other community outreach programs and services. The new $12-million centre will feature a 7,500-square-foot wing for a youth centre and sports courts. The new church will also have another 7,500-square-feet dedicated to the Acts of Kindness ministries, which will house its own garage bay for the twiceannual single mother’s oil changes, the mini-vans for moms program, and facilities for basic mechanic classes. It is also expected to feature a suite for temporary family assistance, as well as a larger kitchen facility for the growing break-

fast club and other food programs. A clothing centre and increased space for the Extreme Home Repair committee is also expected to be in the architect’s drawings. “Special attention has been paid to how the facility can best be used in ministry to the community,” Jamieson said. “This has been an eight year journey to build an AOK centre where we can continue practising what we preach and serving with no strings attached.” There’s been some significant “obstacles and challenges to overcome,” he concluded. “But now it seems like we’re on the verge of dreaming really big and seeing it come to reality.”

Jr. Thunder scorers filling opposing nets Langley is riding a threegame win streak heading into tonight’s home game against the first-place Coquitlam Adanacs. by Troy Landreville

It’s a rare occurrence when a team surrenders 14 goals and wins, but that’s what happened on a wild Sunday afternoon at the Langley Events Centre. In a contest that had two junior lacrosse teams exchange 33 goals, the Langley Jr. Thunder outscored the visiting Victoria Shamrocks 19-14. The Jr. Thunder led 12-8 after two periods and 15-8 midway through the final frame before shifting into cruise control to win by five. A pair of late goals from Victoria’s Brody Eastwood capped the scoring. Langley’s James Rahe tallied the game’s first goal at the 1:38 mark of the first period, then

The goal scoring for the Thunder was more evenly distributed with Dobray and Lundstrom scoring two each, and Brendan Mykle-Winkler, Johnny Pearson and Rahe adding singles.

Spencer England put in a solid effort in goal for the Thunder, stopping 42 of the 49 shots. The Jr. Thunder is riding a three-game win streak heading into tonight’s (Tuesday, June 25) home game against the Adanacs, the co-leaders in the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League standings with a 12-3 record. Game time is 8 p.m. at the LEC. The New Westminster Salmonbellies also have 12 wins, but have one more loss than the Adanacs. At 11-6, the Jr. Thunder sit alone in second place followed by Victoria (10-6), Delta (10-8), Port Coquitlam (7-10), Nanaimo (2-13), and Burnaby (1-15). Looking at the bigger picture, the Jr. Thunder’s record is impressive considering all the injuries the team has been dealing with, of late. “We have some pretty key guys out of the lineup right now. I’ve never seen anything like this in terms of injuries,” Elliott said. “We’re dropping like flies. I’m hoping [we get through the injuries] now, so everybody’s back come playoff time.”

Jordan McBride of the New Westminster Salmonbellies distributed the ball while being pressured by Langley Thunder defender Matthew MacGrotty during Western Lacrosse Association action last Wednesday at the Langley Events Centre. The teams battled to a 7-7 tie.

Thunder sunk by Lakers by Troy Landreville

The defending Western Lacrosse Association Langley Thunder has experienced a fair-to-middling 2013 campaign, thus far. Last summer, the Thunder led the WLA’s regular season standings with a 12-6 record before capturing the league playoff title en route to its second Mann Cup national championship appearance in as many years. This season, minus the services of last year’s co-leader in points Lewis Ratcliff (suspended) and with talented pointproducer Garrett Billings appearing in just two games thus far, the Thunder sits third in the seven-team WLA with a 5-3-1 mark. Tomorrow night (Wednesday, June 26) the Thunder will look to rebound from Friday’s 8-4 loss to the Burnaby Lakers when the senior As host the Coquitlam Adanacs at the Langley Events Centre (LEC). Game time is 7:45 p.m. Burnaby Lakers 8, Thunder 4 Friday at Burnaby’s Bill Copeland Sports Centre, the Thunder’s Shayne Jackson opened the scoring at the 1:57 mark of the first period. After that, the visitors played a frustrating game of catch-up the rest of the night. The Lakers moved ahead 2-1 after Jackson’s goal before Langley’s Athan Iannucci tied the game at 2-2 at the 8:44 mark.

Two more Burnaby goals put the home team up 4-2 after the first period. Langley came within a goal on Kyle Belton’s powerplay marker 1:16 into the second period. The Lakers continued to press, adding a pair of powerplay markers of their own to take a 6-3 lead after 40 minutes. Burnaby had a 2-1 advantage in goals in the final frame to finish the night’s scoring. Even though the Lakers sit below .500 with a 5-6 record, two of their wins have come against the Thunder, including a 98 victory on June 5 at the LEC. Thunder 7, New Westminster Salmonbellies 7 Last Wednesday at the LEC, the Thunder trailed the Salmonbellies 7-5 with six-and-a-half minutes remaining in regulation, then rallied to tie the score before the third period was through. Late goals from Langley’s Jarrett Toll at the 13:31 mark of the frame and Jackson with 3:59 to go in the contest sent the game into overtime. Alex Turner scored twice for the Thunder, which trailed 3-2 after the first period and 5-3 heading into the second intermission. Iannucci and Kyle Belton (who each added two assists), Mitch McMichael, Jackson, and Toll rounded out the Thunder scoring. The Thunder outshot the Salmonbellies 9-6 during the overtime period but neither team found the net. Overall, New West fired 50 shots on goal to Langley’s 46.

• Let children know where safety personnel are stationed. Establish a meet-up point that is very conspicuous should anyone get separated from the group.

• Stick together. It can be tempting to separate when you get to the carnival, as older children may not be interested in the same rides as their younger siblings. Separating increases the risk of someone

Time is ticking, but organizers with the Special Olympics BC Summer Games are calmly waiting. “I think we’re organized and I think we have a really excellent logistics team,” said Lois McNary, vice president of sport with Special Olympics BC. The only thing that seems to be missing from the event planning is first-aid trained volunteers. “One area we are still desperately in need is first-aiders,” McNary noted. Requirements to take on a volunteer shift as a first-aider are minimal, according to McNary. Just a first-aid certificate is required. “We’ve had a wonderful response,” she commented, when asked about overall volunteer levels. Close to 1,000 volunteers will be on hand at the Games to

DIXON, Andrew Jan. 18 1978 - June 21 2013

With profound sadness we announce the passing of our son Andrew Dixon age 35. Andrew leaves a legacy of love and joy for his two children Owen (8) and Myah (5). He will be deeply missed by his parents Carolyn & Tom Dixon, sister Stephanie Adanac (David), partner Michelle Wardle, and former wife Andrea Dixon. A graduate of Langley Secondary School Andrew attended B.C.I.T. and Lakehead University to obtain his P.Eng. Degree (Mechanical); a career path which brought him great satisfaction. From an early age he had a “need for speed” and challenged himself in Quarter Midget cars, on downhill skis and on his bike in triathlons and long distance rides. He rode twice in the Ride to Conquer Cancer to benefit the B.C. Cancer Foundation and donations in his memory would be appreciated. We would like to acknowledge Dr. Laskin of the B.C. Cancer Agency and Dr.Maryam Aroichane NeuroOphthalmologist for their care during Andrew’s courageous battle with cancer. Also thank you to the nurses and volunteers at Langley Hospice.

There’s still more history there: the Murrayville Pump House is a designated heritage site, and next to that is the venerable Sharon United Church. And just up the hill is the old Murrayville School.

The trail may now be easier to follow by walking down Glover Road, but the ancient route between two of Langley’s largest rivers can still be appreciated today. The 8,000-metre portage between the Salmon River and the Nicomekl River, through what is today Milner, was an important highway during the days when canoes were the primary means of trade. Local First Nations bands like the Kwantlen, and later, Hudson’s Bay Company traders, used the route to get from the Fraser River to Mud Bay.

Canada’s longest-running restaurant chain celebrates 85 years of legendary taste, family tradinon, local sourcing and community involvement! White Spot serves more than 12 million guests each year, buys more local products than any other full service restaurant chain in B.C., and has the highest average employee tenure of any Canadian restaurant chain. Over the past year, 87 per cent of Brinsh Columbians who dined out visited White Spot.

Nat Bailey Stadium in Vancouver is named in his honour. • Nat transformed his 1918 Model T Ford into a traveling lunch counter, and served hungry sightseers at Vancouver’s Lookout Point. Hot dogs were a dime and ice cream was a nickel. • Nat was so commimed to having the cleanest spot in town that he named his restaurant ‘White Spot’ – where ‘White’ represented spotlessly clean.

In recogninon of the milestone, classic menu items are being brought back by popular demand. From the iconic Chicken Pick’ns that helped launch White Spot from its first locanon on Granville Street in Vancouver, to the decadent Nat Bailey ‘Adult’ Shake with Bailey’s and Amaremo, the limited nme 85th Anniversary menu has something for everyone.

• Nat pioneered the ‘car hop’ – waiters who would ‘hop’ to it and deliver food to guests relaxing in their vehicles.

“For many Brinsh Columbians, White Spot is a home away from home,” says Warren Erhart, president of White Spot. “As the overwhelming number of guest stories amest, I’m proud to say we’ve become part of the fabric of the province. Great value and uncompromising taste in a familyfriendly selng; that’s the way Nat Bailey wanted it to be.”

• According to legend, Nat’s secret Triple ‘O’ sauce came from shorthand used by carhops filling out order slips. Guests could choose from several toppings. An X meant hold, an O meant extra, and Triple ‘O’ meant plenty of everything!

Harkening back to the days when Nat started White Spot in 1928, the 85th Anniversary menu features classics like the hearty Meatloaf Dinner, original BBQ Chicken Sandwich and Triple Triple threepamy burger. Finish your meal off with Bumbleberry Pie topped with local vanilla bean ice cream, served in a personal-sized crust. The commemoranve menu, which is available from June 10 – July 14, brings White Spot history to life with heartwarming stories – like the tale of a happily-married couple who got engaged over a chocolate milkshake. Nearly one thousand touching White Spot stories have been sent in from guests around the province. “White Spot has always been a place where memories are made,” adds Erhart. “The response from guests who feel a personal connecnon to our restaurants shows just how many lives White Spot has touched. From budding romances to family reunions, it seems nearly everyone has a White Spot story.” Nat Bailey’s ‘Nat facts’: • White Spot founder Nat Bailey opened Canada’s first drive-in at Granville & 67th in 1928. • Nat began his food career serving refreshments at baseball games.

• With longevity comes history. Nat’s first signature dish – the BBQ Chicken Sandwich – came about in 1928 partly due to a shortage of beef following the war.

Home of the Pirate Pak and signature Triple ‘O’ sauce, White Spot sources nearly 5 million pounds of potatoes, 675,000 pounds of tomatoes and 73,000 pounds of blueberries from B.C. producers every year. White Spot is the only casual dining chain in the province that offers a 100 per cent B.C. VQA wine selecnon, and was one of the first restaurants in Western Canada to have Heart & Stroke Foundanonapproved menu items. Net proceeds from the 85th Anniversary menu, which are available for $2 as a keepsake, support Zajac Ranch for Children. View the complete limited nme offer menu at: hmps://www.whitespot. ca/menu/promo/85th-anniversary

About White Spot Headquartered in Vancouver, Brinsh Columbia, White Spot is a B.C. legend. Founded in 1928, when Nat Bailey launched Canada’s first drive-in restaurant at Granville and 67th, the 85-year-young chain now sees more than 17 million guests annually at 127 White Spot and Triple O’s locanons throughout B.C., Alberta and Asia. Bailey’s original vision was to build a restaurant that served the highest quality, unique tasnng food and White Spot remains commimed to connnuing this tradinon in each and every meal. White Spot Limited is proud to be recognized as one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies for the past three consecunve years.
