Canucks buzz spilling over Langley’s hospitality industry is making the most of the team’s deep playoff run GARY AHUJA Times Reporter
Local pubs and restaurants are reaping the benefits of the Vancouver Canucks postseason run as Canuck-mania skyrockets across the province. The Vancouver Canucks, who open play in the NHL’s Western Conference finals on Sunday — the furthest the team has made it since 1994 — are one series victory away from reaching the Stanley Cup finals. And fans of the hockey team are flocking to local establishments to catch the games. “Our business has definitely increased, especially on weekdays,” said Gurp Sahota, the owner of Baselines Pub in Langley City. “I would say (we are up) 50 per cent.” The pub has capacity for 236 patrons and seating for 188. And when the Canucks are playing, he estimates the establishment is at about 75 per cent capacity, with all of the tables occupied. A Canucks game on the TV also means that instead of the usual one bartender and one server who might be working on a Monday night, one bartender and three servers will be attending to patrons. Sahota also said that almost everyone in the place will be wearing some sort of Canucks gear. It is a similar story at the Langley Boston Pizza. “Game days have been quite good,” said general manager Don Haluska. “There is no doubt the Canucks have brought in more revenue.” One thing Haluska did notice was that the crowd was bigger for the Canucks’ first round playoff series victory over Chicago,
Auto theft down by 88 per cent

Putting a single prolific offender in jail can apparently have a significant impact on crime rates in a community. At least, that’s one conclusion that can be drawn from a quarterly police report offered to Langley City council on Monday

to the May 5 high profile robbery of a jewelry store in Willowbrook Shopping Centre, in which a number of people were pepper sprayed, adding that seven people were in custody for that heist within an hour. He also told council that another person was recently

Protect your eyes from sunlight. Overexposure to sunlight can cause long-term, irreversible damage to your eyes. 2 Get your eyes checked regularly. Early detection of an eye disease is key to getting treatment and maintaining your sight. 3 Quit smoking. Smokers are up to four times more likely to develop AMD, the leading cause of vision loss in Canada.
Get healthy. Excess weight, high blood pressure and a high-fat diet are all risk factors for AMD and diabetic retinopathy. 5 Get your vitamins. A high dose of vitamin supplements has been shown to reduce the risk or slow the progression of AMD and cataracts.

news Truck flips on 200 Street Langley Times
The first of several 30” oil pipes is lifted from a truck which rolled over Thursday morning as the driver, southbound on 200 Street, turned left on to the eastbound ramp of Highway 1. The truck was also carrying a load of plywood. The driver suffered minor injuries. which occurred at around 10 a.m., Bruneau watched as a crane attached to another truck transferred the pipes and lumber from the disabled rig. The truck, belonging to Bruneau’s employer, Bill’s Trucking of Abbotsford, was then set
back on its wheels. Northbound traffic on 200 Street was prevented from turning east onto Highway 1 for several hours, but vehicles coming from the north were given a narrow access to the on-ramp.
Overtime boosts City salary costs Times Reporter
Greater than expected overtime charges pushed Langley City’s fire service costs $92,000 over budget in 2010. “It is a significant amount (of money), but we had an extraordinary year this past year,” said City chief administrative officer Francis Cheung. Cheung cited overtime pay, with two firefighters being out with “significant” WorkSafe-related injuries as being responsible for the majority of the overage. The death in January of firefighter Ron Dunkley also had an effect, Cheung said. Dunkley was hospitalized for two months in Seattle after being struck by a train on Nov. 6, while visiting the U.S. city for a football game. The shifts Dunkley would have worked during November and December, as well as those missed by the firefighters on Workers Compensation, were filled by co-workers earning overtime pay, Cheung explained. The City is currently recruiting two new firefighters to fill vacant positions. Once that is done, said Cheung, the City is hoping to manage overtime at the fire department
more effectively. At the same time, call volumes to the City fire department have roughly doubled over the past several years. Firefighters act as first responder to medical emergencies, which comprise roughly 70 per cent of the calls the hall receives. On Monday, the City of Langley released a list of every municipal employee who earned more than $75,000— including salaries, bonuses, gratuities and expenses paid on their behalf — in 2010. Of the 41 names on the list, 22 are firefighters. Several of the firefighters earned over $100,000 in 2010. Cheung said that while several of those people are higher ranking individuals with base salaries in excess of $75,000, others are on the list solely because of the overtime they earned last year. Meanwhile, Cheung as the top manager at City Hall is the municipality’s top earner, with a salary of $191,267 in 2010, and $32,733 in expenses. Darrin Leite, the City’s director of corporate services (in charge of finance), earned $138,366, while Gerald Minchuk, director of development services, received the third highest pay at $135,588. These figures do not include expenses. Council remuneration figures, which
were also released Monday, show Mayor Peter Fassbender received $71,649 in salary, bonuses and gratuities in 2010. Over the same 12-month period, the mayor claimed $8,826 in expenses, for a total of $80,475. The top-earning councillor — Gayle Martin — received $32,243 in pay and claimed an additional $4,460 in expenses. Councillor Jack Arnold earned $31,365 and claimed $4,780 in expenses and Councillor Rosemary Wallace earned $29,257 and claimed an additional $5,590, while Councillors Teri James, Rudy Storteboom and Dave Hall each earned $28,660. James claimed an additional $7,062 and Storteboom, $2,089. Hall claimed $712 in expenses, making him the only member of council to come in under the $30,000 mark. Altogether, including expenses paid on behalf of members, council cost City taxpayers $284,293 in 2010. Throughout its budgeting process earlier this year, the City explained that wages are one of the main drivers of this year’s 2.99 per cent average tax increase. At $8.4 million in 2010 they are second only to policing costs, which are expected to comprise $9 million of the City’s $38 million budget in 2011.

Recently re-elected Langley Conservative MP Mark Warawa is adding his concerns about high gas prices to those raised by Industry Minister Tony Clement on Thursday. “In our constituency office and around Langley, I am hearing the questions and concerns residents have about fluctuating fuel prices,” said Warawa. “We know that the high cost of gas can be a burden for Canadian families. Everyone is feeling the pinch at the pumps. Especially at a time when household budgets are already tight, Canadians want and deserve answers.” Gas prices in Langley jumped to $1.44 a litre on Wednesday, even though crude oil prices took a sharp drop last week and remain under $100 (U.S.) a barrel. Clement said he will ask refiners, distributors and retailers to come to Ottawa to appear before a parliamentary committee, and explain their pricing methods to Canadians. “Members of Parliament will get the chance to ask them the common-sense questions we’ve been hearing from Canadians,” said Warawa. “I’m looking forward to hearing what they have to say.”

Many parolees aren’t at home
A weekend sweep of convicted criminals on parole or under house arrest in Langley found that roughly one in four wasn’t home when they were supposed to be. Of 35 people living under court-imposed curfews, eight were not home when members of the Langley Crime Reduction Unit came calling on the weekend of April 19, said RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks in a written statement released Wednesday. Marks said the breaches will be reported to their probation officers “for their consideration of Criminal Code Breach charges.” The curfew checks are conducted roughly every three months.
Ryan Bruneau’s long road trip to Edmonton started in Pitt Meadows on Thursday morning, and ended abruptly a few minutes later when his rig toppled at the entry to the eastbound on-ramp of Highway 1 at 200 Street in Langley. Witnesses say the truck was going slowly when it made the left turn from 200 Street. Then something happened and Bruneau’s truck, loaded with 30” oil pipes and a stack of plywood, toppled onto its side where it landed partially on a crosswalk, demolishing an overhead sign. A Transit police officer, who confirmed to Bruneau that he took the corner slowly, rushed to the trucker’s aid, climbing onto the cab. He opened the door and instructed Bruneau to turn off the engine. But in the collision, Bruneau was jolted around his cab and couldn’t reach the ignition with his hands, so he used his boot. He was then helped out by the officer. “It all happened in slow motion,” Bruneau said. “It seems like I lost traction.” “In 25 years, I’ve never had that experience,” he said. Bruneau, suffering a sore chest and back, said that his seat belt prevented more serious injuries. “I’m a firm believer in seat belts, and I always wear mine. It kept me in my seat,” he said. About 90 minutes after the crash,

You & The Law
“THIN SKULL” AND “EGGSHELL PERSONALITY” You’re usually entitled to be compensated for physical injuries, like whiplash or a broken arm, if you were hurt in a motor vehicle accident and the crash was the fault of another. But what happens if the injury you suffered was greater than a normal person would have sustained from the same crash because you were particularly vulnerable, either physically or emotionally? The basic principle is this: the court will try to award compensation that will (as far as money can do so) put you back in the same position you were in before the accident happened. If you were particularly vulnerable physically (e.g., suffered a bone fracture from the accident where a normal, more sturdy person would only have gotten a bruise), you can typically recover for your actual injury. The principle here is that the defendant must take their victim as they find them – the “thin skull” rule. Likewise, if you happen to be particularly fragile emotionally, so the accident causes you greater-than-normal psychological problems, the person at fault must bear that risk and compensate you – sometimes dubbed the “eggshell personality” principle. For example, take the recent case of Ms. P, 56 years old at the date of trial. She was a passenger in two separate car crashes, one in 2007 and a more minor one in 2009. Before the accidents, she suffered from various health issues. These included past post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) due to a tragic history of physical and sexual abuse as a child. She also had problems with her legs and feet, multiple areas of pain going as far back as 2003, and a history of depression and past heroin and alcohol abuse. However, she had begun to put her life together in the years before the accidents. She had been clean and sober for several years and was engaged in some volunteer work. She had also undertaken some modest
educational and some limited employment activities. But the two accidents worsened her pre-existing conditions and caused her new injuries. The judge decided that before the first accident, Ms. P was a person of some fragility with respect to both her physical and emotional health. She was more at risk for emotional or psychological trauma than a normal person without her medical history would be (i.e., she was a “thin skull” or “eggshell personality” type). While an average healthy individual involved in the same accidents as Ms. P may have suffered similiar physical injuries, that person would not be as susceptible to (i.e. at the same risk of) suffering the same kind of psychological damage as Ms. P. As a result, when the judge assessed her damages or losses, he attributed some of them to her pre-existing health problems, for which the defendant drivers were not responsible – so she couldn’t recover for those. But she was entitled to compensation for both her physical injuries, (which included soft tissue injuries) and her psychological injuries (which included chronic pain syndrome, PTSD and depressive disorder) attributable to the two car crashes. If you are involved in a car crash, where you were not at fault, you may qualify for damages for greater-than-normal physical or emotional problems that you sustained due to your unique constitution. Also, a preexisting history of health problems does not prevent you from recovery, although it may limit the amount you can claim from the defendant. Consult your lawyer for advice.

with their kids and staying for the full three hours. The trickle down effect means there are more shifts for the staff as well, as they usually need an extra two to three servers plus support staff on game days. The restaurant patrons are also showing Canuck spirit. “If you are coming in to watch the game, we know who you are; there are a lot of jerseys,” Haluska said. Jerseys are also popular at Jimy Mac’s Pub.
“There is a lot of team spirit,” said manager Elissa Duke. Fans also come to the sports bar for the Jimy Mac’s/Molson Canadian promotion which offers patrons a chance to win Canuck tickets to the next home game. While still busier than nongame days, Duke said crowd sizes were down in round two compared the previous round. A lot of this had to do with earlier start times. “Five o’clock games are hard for people because they are just getting off work,” she said.

Mother’s Day theft of flowers on grave ASHLEIGH BEAUDOIN Times Reporter
Mother’s Day is for giving back, not for taking. This was not the case at Langley Lawn Cemetery, where a grave site was robbed. The May 8 weekend came and went smoothly for most Langley citizens, but the memory of this past weekend is tainted for Rhonda Blake, as the result of a brazen theft on the day when mothers are celebrated. On Sunday, Blake went to the Langley Lawn Cemetery, where both of her parents are buried, around 11:30 a.m. She brought with her a small pink calla lily plant in a frosted green glass vase, eight inches high by eight inches wide, to place at the headstone. The vase was a unique find, something that Blake had picked up a few days before at a swap meet. It was made even more unique by placing the plant inside. “There’s no other one out there like it,” she said. She stayed at the cemetery for about an hour, cleaning up the headstone and wishing her mom a happy Mother’s Day. The next day, Blake returned to Langley Lawn to find that the vase was missing. “I had no words,” she said. “It’s just
disgusting that someone could do this.” She was devastated to find that the unique gift had been stolen from her mother’s grave. “I just couldn’t believe how low people can go,” Blake said. “If some mother out there has this vase, I hope she’s proud,” Blake said. This sort of thing should be stopped, Blake said, and people need to know about it. Langley Lawn Cemetery is one of three cemeteries managed by the Township of Langley. It is also responsible for Fort Langley Cemetery and Murrayville Cemetery. According to Jerry Kotanko, who oversees maintenance for the Township’s parks and recreation, and also oversees cemeteries, this is not an isolated incident, but they often go unreported. “We do what we can do,” Kotanko said. But the cemetery is often unoccupied on weekends and at night, and there are no security services on site. In the event of a theft from the grave of a loved one, he asks that people report the incident so that it can be tracked and efforts can be made to prevent further theft. Suspicious activities within any of the three Township cemeteries should be reported to the Township of Langley or to the cemetery workers on site.

Lesson for Liberals
Living up to claims
hile Premier Christy Clark will soon be able to take her seat in the B.C. Legislature, the close race she endured in the Vancouver-Point Grey byelection should cause her, and the party, to stop and think. In a short campaign that partially overlapped the federal election, Clark managed to win the seat by less than 600 votes — 7,371 to 6,776 for the NDP’s David Eby. And she did so without facing a candidate from the resurgent BC Conservatives, who decided to follow tradition and not contest the seat, when it was a byelection involving the sitting premier. Clark’s honeymoon with the public is definitely over. This is partially due to the type of campaign she ran. She refused to attend any all-candidates debate, or take any hard questions, and isolated herself in a bubble. But it is also due to the continued unpopularity of the BC Liberals, particularly over the HST, but also over numerous other issues such as education funding, health care waiting lists, the BC Rail sale, and the general malaise which seems to have come over the province. The HST is Clark’s most pressing problem. It has dogged the BC LIberals for almost two years, and caused her predecessor to resign. A recent report by an independent panel shows that the tax is costing ordinary working people a substantial amount of money for no apparent benefit. A referendum on whether to kill the tax will be conducted by mail in June and July, and seems highly unlikely to prove favourable to the tax. Clark is musing about calling an election in the early fall, but if the HST is rejected in the referendum, and the Conservatives surge to any appreciable extent, it seems quite likely that the NDP will return to power after a 10-year absence. This certainly isn’t the outcome her party had in mind when it selected her as its new leader. The BC Liberals need to stop and think about whether an early election is such a good thing, and come up with truly “family friendly” policies which actually allow people to keep some of the money they earn in their pocket. A good first step would be reducing the HST rate.

hristy Clark faced a crucial byelection in British Columbia this week. Clark is leader of the BC Liberal party, premier of the province of B.C., but she didn’t have a seat in the legislature. On Wednesday, voters in Vancouver-Point Grey decided that for her. She will be taking a seat in the B.C. legislature, hopefully in time to debate the budget for the premier’s office. There hasn’t been a government-won byelection in 30 years. This campaign has largely been run under the radar due to its running concurrently with the federal election and competing with hockey playoffs. The byelection’s single biggest point of controversy however was generated because Clark declared herself too busy to attend allcandidates’ meetings. This has become all too common in political campaigns, with the front–runners often opting out of the unscripted all– candidates meetings to avoid any negative publicity their policies might generate. This strategy has been proving very effective in recent elections, with the negative attention received considered worth it when weighed against the unknown possibilities of a candidate’s possible missteps. Of course this leaves the electorate often feel taken for granted and does not allow voters, who have not made up their minds, the opportunity to see the various candidates in action. For Clark, the hardest part of this tactic has been convincing voters that this does not contradict her promises of openness and accessibility. Clark is recycling former premier Gordon Campbell’s claim of the most open government in Canada.

The Times welcomes letters from its readers. Send submissions to 20258 Fraser Hwy. Langley, B.C. V3A 4E6 e-mail - firstname.lastname@example.org
Readers react to letter from mayoral candidate Editor: If Jack Froese (letters, The Times, May 4) wants to make a serious attempt at seeking the mayor’s office, he needs to go back and do his homework. His support of Councillor Jordan Bateman’s accusations that Mayor Rick Green is “being a passenger” indicates that he has no knowledge of what has gone on in council meetings over the past two and one-half years. From the first meeting following the 2008 election, Mayor Green has been the hardest worker on council. He has stood up to the bullying of Bateman and the “Kurt Alberts” majority. The majority of council, led by Bateman along with Councillors Charlie Fox and Grant Ward, have displayed their dis-
pleasure that their beloved Alberts was defeated, right from that first council meeting in December 2008. Bateman and company have fought Green’s every attempt at thinking outside the box to reduce tax increases. It is no wonder the mayor has learned to watch his words. The last time he attempted to hold the majority accountable for a taxpayerfunded $8.8 million blunder, they called in the RCMP to shut him up. Even Councillor Kim Richter has now joined in, by proposing a motion to basically turn the mayor’s office into just another councillor’s position. Richter, with the unanimous support of all councillors, has sent a motion to Township lawyers to investigate eliminating the mayor’s post of
all mayoral duties and responsibilities. This would turn the mayor into a ninth councillor. Attendees at that meeting were left with the perception that even if Green needed more paper for his office printer, he needed a council vote of approval. The present councillors have placed blame for Alberts’ defeat upon Green, but they have failed to acknowledge that it was the voters that kicked Alberts out of office. Ben Penner, Langley
SHARK SMELLS BLOOD Editor: I think Jack Froese wrote this letter to the editor in the guise of a shark. I take a fairly proactive approach to Langley
Township politics, and I don’t recall this gentleman having much public input until he cast his hat into the ring. Smelling Rick Green’s blood, probably due to wounds from the “six pack,” Froese appears to have come in for a closer look. From where? I don’t recall him having served his apprenticeship in municipal politics, and now he wants to be our mayor. He may well be a capable individual. Let him introduce himself to us by trying for a council seat, to get his feet wet. I sense a groundswell of support for Mayor Green in his efforts to reduce the waste in the trough. Perhaps Froese could help us unseat one of the “pack” first. Win Bromley, Langley
Council refused to meet with finance committee Editor: I read aspiring mayor Jack Froese’s letter to the editor (The Times, May 4) with a great degree of skepticism. Obviously Froese did not do his homework prior to putting his foot in his mouth. His criticism of Mayor Rick Green is totally unwarranted. One of Mayor Green’s first tasks upon being elected was to appoint a Standing Committee on Finance, whose main responsibility was to assist in the budgeting process. In addition to the mayor and two councillors, the mayor appointed three members of the community, all of whom brought considerable expertise to the table. The three appointees were George Luciani (a retired federal government
employee with extensive finance experience), Calvin Patterson (a local lawyer) and myself, Ken Baker. I am a retired chartered accountant with 40 years of public accounting experience. The committee spent untold hours, without compensation, reviewing the numbers over a five-month period and prepared a comprehensive report for council’s consideration. Council refused to meet with the committee to discuss its report and recommendations. Instead of implementing a one per cent property tax increase as recommended by the committee, council levied a five per cent tax increase on ratepayers during a time of significant economic downturn.
The justification for the five per cent increase was that a lesser increase would result in reduced municipal services. Horse feathers. A one per cent increase was achievable for two reasons. First, the municipality had accumulated surpluses over the years which could have been temporarily accessed during tough economic times. Second, there was a significant amount of fat that could have been trimmed from the budget. Rather than question the budget, council took the position that “staff would not have asked for the money if they did not need it.” What kind of stewardship of the taxpayers’ dollars is that? Green is a breath of fresh air. He is not
Langley Township deserves off-leash dog trails Editor: This is regarding recent letters sent to the Township mayor, council and Langley newspapers regarding off-leash walking trails for Langley residents and their dogs. There have been responses from Councillors Charlie Fox, Bob Long, Mel Kositsky and Grant Ward, but no word from the other councillors or the mayor of Langley Township. Campbell Valley has been given to the equestrian population of Langley. Joggers and walkers can go wherever they want, but not our dogs. The
We are not allowed to have our dogs off-leash on Houston Trail because of the possibility of harm to the environment. What about coyotes and bears? In Walnut Grove, there is a small, totally inadequate dog park that is muddy and over-crowded and often there are fights between dogs, so very few pet owners still use it. There is Derby Reach off-leash park which is a bit larger, but still very crowded and often the scene for more dog fights. There is talk of Aldergrove Lake park being re-
designated to allow some off-leash areas, but that means a 50 km return trip from Walnut Grove. The new trail from 208 Street to the Fraser River is a great walking trail but is not designated off-leash, so that we can let our dogs have some real exercise. This trail would be ideal for dogs and their owners. Please give us a chance to show how responsible dog owners will protect and care for this area if we are given an opportunity to use it as an off-leash walking trail. Other municipalities in
the Greater Vancouver area have designated great trails for off-leash walking, why can’t Langley do the same? There are over 20,000 registered dogs in Langley and this number is probably a very low estimate. Dog owners are residents, taxpayers, voters and responsible citizens of Langley Township and we feel that we should have a say in how the trails of our neighbourhoods are used . Hopefully we can come to some kind of agreement on this matter. S. Burgess, Langley
prepared to accept the status quo. His questioning of decisions made by previous councils (including the recent $8.9 million settlement related to the Langley Events Centre) has resulted in the “six pack” scurrying to cover their backsides. They are so busy trying to discredit Mayor Green that they have totally lost sight of their mandate of governing the municipality. Froese’s letter smacks of ”six pack” bias. As a candidate for mayor, he would be well advised to do his homework before communicating with the electorate. They are very capable of sorting the wheat from the chaff. Kenneth C. Baker, Langley
Thanks for support Editor: I wish to thank my wonderful friends in Langley for the great honour given to me, to continue representing you in Canada’s Parliament. We live in an incredible community that I love deeply. The support that you showed me on May 2 is humbling. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. During the campaign, I enjoyed meeting with many of you. I met with our students, our seniors, our families and our businesses. You shared your ideas and what is important to you, which is always what I need to hear. Thank you to all the workers and volunteers that made the election a great success. We do live in a stable democracy that is the envy of the world — voting with a ballot, not a bullet. Please contact me and my incredible staff if you need our help. Mark Warawa, MP, Langley

The Times received numerous awards at the recent conventions of both the B.C. and Yukon Community Newspapers Association and Canadian Community Newspapers Association. Both the provincial and national industry associations met at the River Rock Hotel and Casino in Richmond from April 28-20. The Times won first place in the CCNA Best Holiday Edition category, for one of the Christmas gift guides published last December. “The Times’ unique take on Christmas was a fresh approach to an annual tradition. Each submission was a joy to read and some of the stories on the holiday season were definitely heartwarming,” said judges. Times editor Frank Bucholtz won second place for national editorial writing at the CCNA convention, for an editorial on the ongoing debate over the long gun registry and how it was affected by a minority Parliament. The Times was named second in its class for best overall newspaper in the BCYCNA general excellence awards. Last year, it finished first. This year’s winner was sister newspaper The Peace Arch News of South Surrey/White Rock. Reporter Monique Tamminga won second place in investigative reporting for a series on the outbreak of the Parvo virus at a Langley City pet shop, and how Langley City reacted to the outbreak. Carol Addy of The Times’ creative services department won second place for collaborative ad campaign. Her ad for Brothers Too! Wine Makers was cited by judges as having “an opportunity to stand out from the crowd.” Langley historian Warren Sommer won third place for his story, published for Remembrance Day. His story recounted his visit to battlefields anf graveyards in Belgium and France in search of the final resting places of Langley soldiers killed in the First World War.

The opening this week of a spectacular $14-million equestrian centre and clubhouse marks the completion of Cressey Developmentâ€™s High Point Estates, an equestrian-themed neighbourhood that brings a high-end burnish to Langley Townshipâ€™s unofficial role as the horse capital of B.C. â€œThis is an exciting day for Langley,â€? said deputy Mayor Mel Kositsky. â€œIt fits with our profile as a place that welcomes the horse industry. The 8,000-square-foot equestrian centre houses a huge indoor, light-filled riding arena, outdoor riding ring, a 1,000-square-foot clubhouse with bar, pool tables and covered patio, tennis court and a 4,000-square-foot fitness centre with his and hers steam rooms, yoga area, cardio, stretch and weight rooms. â€œItâ€™s absolutely grand,â€? said High Point resident Noel AsmarCurtis, owner of an equestrian wear company and one of the first to purchase a lot in the subdivision. Asmar-Curtis says she travels all over the world for her business and has not seen a facility that equals High Pointâ€™s. The centre, which sits on eight acres, also features spacious horse barns with 40 stalls that are for sale or lease, and is avail-

The indoor riding arena at High Point is one of the centrepieces of the equestrian-themed development. able for riding lessons, boarding, training and facility rental for community events. High Point was â€œimpacted pretty hardâ€? by the recession, said Cressey development manager Jason Turcotte, but sales are becoming â€œreally strongâ€?. The 287-acre development, a former gravel pit in south Langley, has 164 home lots ranging from half an acre to eight acres. Lot prices start at $529,000 and houses range in size from a massive 26,000-square-foot house now under construction to more modest 2,500-square-foot homes. Some 60 lots are still for sale. Turcotte said his company was surprised at the number of buyers who are not involved with horses. â€œWe expected to get the horse people, but weâ€™re actually getting a number of people who
want the country feel, who like the idea of horse activity but donâ€™t ride themselves.â€? As part of its development agreement with the Township, High Point has dedicated 90 acres to public use as riding trails, protected wetlands and a spring-fed lake. The nine kilometres of trails connect to the 30 kilometres of existing trails in nearby Campbell Valley Regional Park. Turcotte said Cressey has no plans to build a similar development because High Point was the result of a unique confluence of public vision and private development activity. â€œIt is unique in Canada,â€? he added. The public is invited to attend an open house at the equestrian facility this Saturday, May 14, from noon to 4 p.m. High Point is located at 658 200 St.

The halls were alive with the sounds of children when 1,800 enthusiastic students, teachers, and parents from dozens of local schools paid a visit to the Township’s Civic Facility. April 28 was Municipal Awareness Day, and the Township celebrated the annual event — and its 138th birthday — by inviting the young visitors to see what staff do on a day-to-day basis to keep the municipality functioning. Stations were set up throughout the facility and in parking lots to teach students about everything from road maintenance, sign making, recycling, policing, and tree planting to graphic design, recreation, the environment, and safety. Employees from all areas of the Township, Langley Centennial Museum, Langley Animal Protection Society, emergency services, and the Fort Langley National Historic Site took part to give the children a hands-on look at the work they do. Children climbed aboard municipal works vehicles and fire trucks, took part in a mock Township council meeting, voted in an election that saw ‘Taylor Swift’ take on ‘Justin Bieber’ and enjoyed food and drinks that were donated by local businesses and prepared by fire department and bylaw enforcement staff. MAD coincided with the Day of Mourning for Persons Killed or Injured in the Workplace, and crowds of respectful students observed a ceremony and moment of silence that was held by Township staff. Municipal Awareness Day got its start in 2003 when 400 students from nearby schools visited the old Township Hall to learn all about what municipal government does. It has grown to an event that is greatly anticipated by Langley’s elementary schools, and the Township is pleased to teach the children, who may one day be taxpayers, employees, or even elected officials, about the services, programs, and products that keep the community safe, clean, and healthy.

Gala raises $332,000 for hospital NATASHA JONES Times Reporter
Organizers of this year’s Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation gala are flying high after an extraordinary affair on May 7. Held for the first time at the Langley Museum of Flight, the gala raised $332,000, far surpassing the goal of $150,000. Foundation executive director Tania Vrionis called the evening “amazing.” “Hosting the event at a nontraditional venue allowed us to create an entirely unique and different type of event, and to truly give our supporters a night to remember,” Vrionis said. “The positive feedback we’ve received confirms that we achieved our goal in creating an atmosphere like no other. The team at the Canadian Museum of Flight were such a treat to work with, and we thank them for trusting us with their beautiful facility,” she added. There were a number of highlights, not least of which was a new element to the fundraising evening: A ‘Philanthropic Frenzy’ in which guests were given an opportunity to make donations to the foundation, auction-style, raising more than $240,000. An anonymous bidder made a substantial gift of $200,000, Vrionis said. A highlight of the live auction was the bidding war over a special dining experience for eight at the Murrayville firehall, complete with transportation to and from the hall on a fire truck, compliments of the Township’s professional firefighters’ union. During the bidding war, the firefighters generously donated a second dinner experience, and

Langley-born actress Amanda Crew, emcee at the May 7 Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation, chats with auctioneer Tyler Olson during the event. both bidders paid $10,000 each for the experience. Amanda Crew, a well-known actress originally from Langley and currently living in Los Angeles, was the emcee for the evening. The location was a departure for the annual gala, which is usually held in a more formal setting. However, the museum was transformed so that a fresh, new environment would still reflect the elegance of the soiree, one of the social highlights of Langley. In the weeks leading to the event, Vrionis commented that the organizing committee was “looking for something unique,
something completely different. We wanted to flip it totally inside out.” It worked. The event sold out weeks in advance, with all 260 tickets sold. Proceeds from the event will be used to support the surgical department at LMH through the purchase of a complete endoscopy system, and to replace scopes. “The generosity of this amazing community reached an entirely different level at our gala, as evidenced by the fact that we exceeded last year’s event total by more than 50 per cent,” Vrionis said.

Iconic oily ‘candlefish’ nearing extinction JEFF NAGEL Black Press
The Fraser River eulachon, an oily smelt-like fish prized by First Nations, has been designated an endangered species after a 98 per cent decline in its numbers over the past decade. The listing was made by the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada (COSEWIC), which warns the outlook is “grim” for the small iconic fish that may be nearing extinction. Eulachon, also spelled oolichan, is dubbed saviour fish by some aboriginals who counted on it to bridge over gaps in the salmon catch and candlefish by others, because they’re so oily they can be dried and burned like candles. Some B.C. First Nations rendered eulachon down into a grease that was carried vast distances along historic “grease trails — pre-contact trade routes that connected coastal and inland villages. “There used to be millions of them,” Sto:lo fishery advisor Ernie Crey said. “But they’re just not there any more.” The eulachon has been a staple for the Kwantlen First Nation people and was, until recent years, sold annually in Fort Langley. COSEWIC cites a mix of potential culprits for the precipitous drop in eulachon stocks, including changing environmental conditions affecting marine survival, predators and fishing. Crey points to boats in the offshore shrimp trawl fishery, which pull up eulachon as a bycatch along with their shrimp. “They just jettison them overboard as waste,” he said. “There’s no market for them so there’s no interest in them.” He also suspects eulachon have been hurt by habitat damage along the lower Fraser from industrial
The once plentiful euchalon or ‘candlefish’ is now on the endangered species list activity. Log booms on the lower river grind up bark and deposit it on the river bottom, covering spawning habitat, he said. Channel dredging, boat traffic, municipal sewage and chemical contaminants from farmland may also be factors, he said. COSEWIC’s decision will go to the federal environment minister, who will consider whether to also designate eulachon under Canada’s Species at Risk Act (SARA). Crey said a listing under SARA would force the Department of Fisheries and Oceans to take a hard look at fisheries that threaten eulachon, as well as sources of habitat damage, and potentially force corrective action. Eulachon populations on the central coast are now also rated endangered by COSEWIC, although ones further north in the Skeena and Nass Rivers are only considered “threatened.”

JEFF NAGEL Black Press
New regulations proposed by Metro Vancouver would block the building of more giant estate houses that inefficiently eat into scarce farmland. The region is asking the provincial agriculture ministry to introduce standardized rules to control the placement and size of the residential footprint of homes in the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR). While two cities â€” Delta and Richmond â€” have local bylaws that impose restrictions, opposition from property owners have prompted other councils such as Pitt Meadows and Surrey to shelve similar efforts. If the city-by-city patchwork of rules continues, Metro officials say, people wanting to build manor homes on farmland will flock to cities without bylaws, or look further east in the Fraser Valley Regional District. A staff report warns of growing pressure to develop ALR land by property owners who want large houses and yards
who may have little or no interest in actually farming the land. A house plunked in the middle of a farm parcel with a long driveway and expansive yard â€œmakes farming more difficult if not impossible,â€? the report says. Allowing such houses on agricultural land may also attract non-farmers. Once a large estate house is erected, the property becomes prohibitively expensive for many actual farmers. The new estate home owners may also complain about neighbouring farm smells and sounds, the report suggests, hampering farmers on adjacent plots. The province previously signaled its willingness to consider regulations, circulating its own discussion paper on potential options. The limits proposed by Metro Vancouver would cap an ALR farmâ€™s residential footprint at 5,000 square metres for properties eight hectares or more or 2,000 square metres for smaller parcels. That footprint would have to start no further than 60 metres from the road or property line, ensuring residential uses are close to the edge of the property and canâ€™t sprawl far into it. The main farm house, any secondary house and any other residential uses â€” from sheds and workshops to tennis courts
and pools â€” would have to be within the footprint. House sizes would be capped at 500 square metres for the main house on parcels of at least eight hectares (350 square metres for smaller properties) and 250 square metres for an additional house for farm staff (200 square metres for smaller parcels.) The house size limits are somewhat looser than Deltaâ€™s but Metro staff argue individual cities would still be free to pass more restrictive bylaws if they choose. Richmond only requires a house on agricultural land be within 50 metres of the road or property line. It has no house size or footprint limits specific to farmland. According to the Metro report, building a very large house worth $2.25 million on a fiveacre farm more than triples the propertyâ€™s average cost per acre from $175,000 to $550,000. Even on a 20-acre parcel, the average value nearly doubles to $212,500 per acre compared to if a small house was built instead. â€œThis drives up the price of farmland and makes farmland less affordable for farmers and less likely to be farmed,â€? the report warns. The current rules in most of the region let buyers who want

Metro Vancouver is proposing new regulations that would stem the construction of giant houses, such as this one in Ladner, which are eating up viable farmland. an estate lifestyle build their dream home on cheaper ALR land without having to pay the higher price to get the equivalent mansion on urban residential-zoned land. They also get an investment
with a potential future windfall if the land can someday be removed from the ALR and subdivided. Owners who do grow something may even qualify for the lower farm property tax rate,
even if they use just a tiny fraction of the landâ€™s potential. The proliferation of farm estate houses has also been flagged by the region as a concern for Metroâ€™s future food security.

Mike Tookey won’t say exactly how the driver of the over-sized pickup truck responded when the president of the James Hill Elementary School Parent Advisory Council (PAC) told him off for speeding through the 30 km/h speed zone on 222 Street near Old Yale Road. “He was rude,” is all Tookey will disclose, adding the confrontation ended more or less peacefully with the offending motorist driving off in a huff. The incident happened in late January, when Tookey followed the truck after witnessing it tearing down the street past the park that adjoins the school, doing what appeared to the professional firefighter to be between 80 and 100 km/h. Children play in that park and use the crosswalk next to it, the indignant Tookey says. He’s been told by a volunteer crossing guard that almost every week a driver either doesn’t notice the warning sign near the park until the last minute or ignores it altogether. “It’s quite common,” Tookey says. He and the other parents on the PAC would like the Township to put some kind of warning sign on 222 about 75 to 100 metres ahead of the park. “It’s just a matter of time before we have a serious injury,” he warns. There is a lot of traffic to and

James Hill Elementary PAC president Mike Tookey stands in the road near the school, where vehicles have been known to speed by at up to 80 or 100 km/h. from the Fraser Highway down 222, Tookey notes, adding other schools in Langley have those kinds of advance warning signs. That is unlikely to happen at James Hill, however. There are currently no plans to add another sign according to Paul Cordeiro, Langley Township manager of transportation engineering, who says another sign is unlikely to make much difference to drivers who ignore posted speed limits and don’t pay attention. Cordeiro says a number of changes have already been made to improve safety, including installing curb extensions that prevent parking near the intersection of 222 and Old Yale that could obscure driver views. The park itself is fenced off

and the existing signs are clearly visible well before a driver would enter the restricted speed zone, Cordeiro adds. James Hill Elementary School Principal Mike Etheridge says Tookey’s proposal seems reasonable and common sense. “The corner he is talking about is quite dangerous due to the fact that cars go speeding through regardless of the fact that there is a crosswalk there,” Etheridge said in an e-mail to The Times. “My crosswalk supervisors have mentioned to me on several occasions how fast cars speed by even though children are waiting to cross the street. It would seem to me that anything that would prevent a possible accident would be a good idea.”

Students reunite Langley Secondary School’s graduating class of 1961 is holding its 50th anniversary reunion this weekend, and there are still a few grads that organizers have been unable to contact. Jean Gregson said that about 80 people are coming to events, beginning this evening (Friday). The weekend’s celebrations begin with registration of the class of ’61 and a ‘meet and greet’ at LSS starting at 3:45 p.m., followed by a guided tour of the school. The school’s current Student Leadership Group has lined up student volunteers, and the art class has a special project for the graduates, Gregson said. Photography club students will take candid photos at the meet and greet. Grads of ’61 can be re-acquainted at the Thirsty Penguin Pub in the nearby Langley Twin Rinks. There were 88 students in the Class of ’61, the girls outnumbering the boys 52 to 36.

FiT for a picnic The FiT Network, a volunteer, parent driven, nonprofit society that has been keeping special needs ‘Families in Touch,’ since 2008, is having a picnic on Sunday, June 26 at Walnut Grove Park, 8939 Walnut Grove Drive. The event is from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. FiT meetings take place once a month, and members also enjoy seasonal fun events for the whole family and Casual Coffee nights that give parents of special needs children the opportunity to get in touch with parents who face challenges. FiT Meets are an opportunity for parents to network with other parents who have special needs children. Professional guest speakers are invited to speak on various topics that will educate and empower FiT families. These evenings provide for more intimate discussions and the invaluable parent to parent support. “We provide food, entertainment, and the chance to take their entire family out for free,” said Hayley Nimmo of the FiT Network. “These events help parents to realize that they are not alone and that fun can be had despite their special challenges.” The annual ‘Let’s Get FiT in a Pub’ fundraiser and silent auction is on June 18. Proceeds from this event will go towards the family events. Visit www.fitnetworksociety.com.

A Chemical Reaction to be screened Wednesday The Canadian Cancer Society, Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS), Kwantlen Polytechnic University’s School of Horticulture and the
Green Ideas Network, are inviting residents to learn more about how cosmetic pesticides affect health and the environment at a community dialogue and
screening of the film A Chemical Reaction. It will be on Wednesday, May 18 at 7 p.m. in the auditorium at Kwantlen University Langley campus.
A ‘Green Wednesday’ event, the evening will feature the screening of the film A Chemical Reaction, which tells the story of a powerful community initiative
that eventually resulted in Canada’s first bylaw to ban the use of all chemical pesticides and herbicides, in Hudson, Quebec. The bylaw with-

cial bans on the sale and use of cosmetic pesticides — 168 Canadian municipalities have adopted similar bylaws. A Chemical Reaction “is 75 minutes of pure inspiration that a community can come together and overcome great odds to effect change,” said Nichole Marples, LEPS executive director. Canadian Cancer Society health promotion co-ordinator, Mandip Kharod said that Green Wednesdays raise awareness about the potentially harmful effects of pesticides. “We hope that this public screening will help to further educate our communities on the health risks associated with unnecessary cosmetic pesticide use,” Kharod said. Admission is by donation for this family-friendly event, although there is a small parking fee. The organizers encourage everyone to attend and learn more about how individuals and communities can work together to reduce pesticide use. Refreshments will be provided, but participants are asked to bring their own mugs. Green Wednesdays are sponsored by A Bread Affair and LadyBug Organics. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. People can register at 604-599-3311, or e-mail Gary.Jones@ Kwantlen.ca or call 604-532-3511, or firstname.lastname@example.org.

World champion from Langley DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter
The people inside the auditorium at Moreton Boys’ College went completely silent while Kristine Ramsbottom was reading. The Langley teenager had chosen a passage from Ray Bradbury’s 1957 novel “Dandelion Wine” for the interpretive reading competition at the April 2011 World Public Speaking competition in Brisbane, Australia. The competition rules require a short introduction about the selected piece of
writing, followed by a wordfor-word reading aloud. Speakers are judged for their use of dramatic emphasis, rhythm and the ability to lift words off the page in a compelling way. At her coach’s suggestion, Ramsbottom read from part of a chapter in Dandelion Wine where Bradbury describes one character being stalked by a frightening, ominous presence. Competitors aren’t required to know more than the selection, but Ramsbottom found the excerpt so compelling that she read the whole book
just to see how it all turned out. “It was really addicting,” she said. The result, when it came time to read the nine or so minutes of the excerpt, was a performance that won a firstplace finish for Ramsbottom, who has been honing her talent for persuasion since she was nine and convinced her parents to get her a dog. She was one of two Canadians who took top spots in the competition of approximately 120 participants from 15 countries around the world, held in Brisbane.
It was the second trip to the international event for Ramsbottom, a senior at Southridge school in South Surrey (She placed fifth in her category at the 2010 competition held in Lithuania), and a good way to wrap up her competitive public speaking career. Next year, she will no longer be a high school student and will not be eligible for youth competitions like the Brisbane event. But Queen’s University, where she is going to study, does include public speaking in the curriculum.
Kristine Ramsbottom finished first at the World Public Speaking Competition in Brisbane, Australia.

IMPROVING INDEPENDENCE AND QUALITY OF LIFE FOR SENIORS “Our focus is to help older adults with complex health issues to maintain their independence as long as possible within the community.” -Dr. Sanjeev Vohra, Geriatrician, Specialized Seniors Clinic, Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre
PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE Learn more about the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre by joining us at our public open house Monday, May 30 from 3pm – 7pm. For more information, learn a fact a day and to view our video about the new Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre go to www.fraserhealth.ca.
With the rise of the older adult population it has become a priority for seniors to maintain function and independence for as long as possible. “Older Adults who have multiple health concerns are not best served with the routine medical care that’s provided through ERs and walk-in clinics,” explained Dr. Sanjeev Vohra, one of the geriatricians in the new Specialized Seniors Clinic at the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre. “They require special assessment, care and ongoing support.” The Specialized Seniors Clinic offers older adults and their families assistance with management of their health in order to optimize quality of life, improve self management of chronic conditions, and maintain independence. Working with primary care providers and community services the Seniors Clinic provides assessment, diagnosis, treatment, management, care planning and timely follow up. Care is provided by an interdisciplinary team utilizing evidence based practice and geriatric expertise of professionals and community groups.
Home is best “Our focus is to work collaboratively with primary care physicians to help older adults with complex health issues maintain their independence as long as possible in the community,” Dr. Vohra said. “The goal is always quality of life while keeping them safe, so whatever that transition requires over a period of time, that’s what we guide them through.” Surrey couple Inez and Don, both in their late 90s, are still living independently at home four years after the clinic supported them through Inez’s difficulties with depression and sleeping. The Seniors Clinic staff recognized that Inez was being over-medicated, and after three months in a care facility by adjusting her medications she was able to return home. With the assistance of visits from a home care nurse and their daughter, along with occasional checkups, the couple can keep doing what makes them happy.
“It means a lot to us to be independent,” said Inez, who is 99. “ We feel very fortunate to be using the clinic. They’re very caring and nice people.” Expanding services to meet a growing need The clinic’s new location (relocating from the Gateway Scotia Bank Tower in Surrey) will expand their holistic approach to include coordination with other on-site services (such as chronic disease and pain clinics), primary care providers, referrals to other Fraser Health programs such as Home Health, and a focus on family education and support. This patient-centred, integrated approach is critical as health care providers face what is referred to as “the rising tide of the silver tsunami,” Dr. Vohra noted. “We’re seeing increasing incidence of all problems related to seniors, including dementia, which is a huge and growing problem.” Talk to your family physician if you or a family member could benefit from the Specialized Seniors Clinic. To contact ontact the clinic directly call 604 -953-4919; -9 afterr June 6 call 604-582-4582.

review Superior quality 1 and 2 bedroom homes AND a 1.9% mortgage* We are very happy homeowners. Home ownership wasn’t something we’d considered until Cornerstone came along. One look at the showhome (nice) and a conversation with their mortgage-savvy sales team, and we were sold. We walked in on a whim, thinking, “There’s no way we can afford this”, and walked out on top of the world. Our folks agree — Cornerstone is a smart decision. Marcon has a great reputation; they’ve been around as long as we’ve been alive. And the best part is we can still afford to go on vacation, thanks to our low monthly payment.

Co-op’s new GM plans bigger and better future KURT LANGMANN Black Press
A man who started out as an apprentice baker for Federated Co-operatives Ltd. (FCL) 22 years ago has risen to become the new general manager of one of their largest outlets. Jack Nicholson took over the helm at Otter Co-op in Aldergrove last month after former GM Dean McKim was promoted to management at FCL’s head office in Saskatoon. Nicholson, his wife Perrianne, and their four children came here in January of 2010 when he took over as operations manager at Otter Co-op. He had worked his way up in management at FCL outlets and offices in Alberta and Saskatchewan over the years and seized the opportunity to come here when the posting opened up at Otter Co-op. “My wife has always wanted to live in B.C.,” said Nicholson. And having the past year’s experience of working at Otter Co-op “made it easier for me to step in and provide continuity

In addition to its retail centre on 248 Street in Aldergrove, Otter Co-op has five gas bars, a hardware and feed outlet in Pitt Meadows, and they have an extensive dealer network selling feed from their feed mill in Aldergrove. “Thirty per cent of our feed sales are now on Vancouver Island, and we are looking for new opportunities on the north shore (of Fraser River),” says Nicholson. “There are lots of opportunities for expansion.” Currently underway is a produce and convenience store along with a pharmacy in Abbotsford, at Yale and McMillan Roads.And in the near future work will begin on a gas bar

and convenience store along the Abbotsford-Mission Highway near Clayburn. The co-op’s petroleum outlets have been one of their biggest growth areas in terms of volume, and have contributed mightily to their bottom line. “Last year we beat our previous sales record by $10 million,” says Nicholson. “We have been really successful by sticking with quality, and we keep our assets in great shape.” Promotions like their ongoing customer draw for a new Honda Civic will also be pursued. The final draw for the winner will be made on June 5, and Nicholson says the contest has been a success in promoting their retail centre in Aldergrove. For every $50 spent in the retail store customers are given one entry in the draw. “It’s our own in-store contest so it will be a local shopper who wins it; we’re very excited about that,” says Nicholson. “We will have different contests like it coming up for our different locations.”

The Corix Water Products offices will also move from Cloverdale to offer customers a full selection of pipes, valves, fire hydrants, water meters and irrigation equipment. The third part of Corix moving in — the Pumps, Fabrication, HDPE and Coastal Operations groups — will come from Abbotsford. And the final group will be business support staff currently located in
Surrey. An additional innovation of the development will be the installation of a closed loop geo-exchange system that will be able to meet the heating and cooling needs of almost half of the new facility. “As a leading proponent of geo-exchange systems, it made sense to explore the potential to utilize this costefficient, sustainable energy technology in our new facility,” added Vander Helm.“We did preliminary investiga-
tions on the site and when we found aboveaverage potential, went ahead and incorporated the geo-exchange system into the overall design of the development. We look forward to showing clients the benefits of geoexchange first hand, as well as how easy it can be to install.” The shop and warehouse parts of the business are expected to move in in the fall, while the remainder of the operations and staff will move in early 2012.

Changes in store for BCHL teams
Making the playoffs in the B.C. Hockey League is no longer a virtual slam dunk. The league announced it is cutting the playoff field from 14 teams to eight teams, four from each conference, beginning next season. Under the previous format, only two teams — one from each conference — failed to make the post-season.
John VAN PUTTEN/Black Press
Langley Christian’s Alvin Los took first in the senior boys high jump with this 1.90 m jump at the Upper Fraser Valley Track and Field last week at Abbotsford’s Rotary Stadium. Los and hundreds of other Langley athletes will be competing at the Fraser Valley championships, which run May 16, 17 and 19 at the Coquitlam Town Centre Stadium. For full results from the Upper Fraser Valley championships, go to www.fraservalleytrack.com.
The change was one of several announced on Wednesday in an effort to improve cost efficiency and player development for the junior A hockey clubs. The BCHL has also moved its season start date back a couple weeks as the 2010-11 campaign will begin Sept. 23 and end March 11. There will also be one less round of playoffs. Regional rivalries will be the
focus of the schedule, as teams will play every team but not visit every town in the league. Another change will be some earlier start times in an effort to increase family attendance. Team rosters will be reduced from 23 to 21 players in hopes of promoting player development. Each team must also carry one 16-year-old and one 17-year-old on their roster, which should help
develop more home-grown talent. Teams will also have an opportunity to draft 15-year-olds for their affiliate rosters, but those players will only be on the roster for the one season. Langley’s hockey club has been sold and renamed the Rivermen. The ownership group officially takes control of the team on June 1 and will likely announce a new head coach.

Golden time for Blues in Saskatchewan Sports
It was the Fraser Valley Blues who left the competition singing the blues. The U14 Fraser Valley Volleyball Association boys’ team was crowned national champion in Saskatchewan over the weekend. The team did not drop a single set in their nine matches. The Blues, who went a perfect 6-0 in pool play, defeated the Victoria Lansdowne Flyers 2-0 (25-13,25-22) in a rematch of the previous weekend’s provincial championship final. They also defeated the country’s top-ranked team — Winnipeg’s 204 Gold — in the quarter-finals and then beat another Winnipeg squad, the Winman Tide, in the semifinals. Langley’s Steven Hsu was a force offensively, with 25 kills,
four aces and 18 digs. Beating the Flyers for the gold medal in back-to-back tournaments was especially sweet for the Blues, as the Victoria club was the only U14 team to defeat the Fraser Valley club. Fraser Valley ended the season with a mark of 39-12, with 11 of the losses coming against U15 and U16 squads. UUUUU The Coquitlam Adanacs were all that stood in the way of the Langley Thunder and the gold medal. Coquitlam defeated Langley both in the round robin and in the championship game at a peewee A lacrosse tournament in Kamloops last weekend. The Adanacs won 10-6 in the
final, after an earlier 8-4 victory in round robin. In the gold medal game, Langley was within one in the third period, before Coquitlam scored three more goals to win by four. Those were the lone blemishes for the Thunder, who played their best lacrosse of the season to date. Langley posted a commanding 16-5 victory over the Kamloops Rattlers and then 8-2 over the Delta Islanders. Caleb Pearson potted four goals, Connor Watson had a hat trick and Dawson Calfa finished with a goal and three assists in that second game. Goaltender Chase Moore was rock solid in earning player of the game honours for Langley. Riley Richardson played goal in the round robin defeat against Coquitlam, earning player of the

game honours. Against Delta in the semifinals, the Thunder received a balanced offensive attack, including a pair of assists from Joe Spady, and tough defence from Ryan Williams, the team’s player of the game. UUUUU The Langley Thunder have gone east looking for pieces for the upcoming senior A Western Lacrosse Association season. The team signed Andrew Potter, Pat Saunders and John Rae. Saunders and Potter are offensive weapons while Rae will help at the defensive end. All three are from Ontario. Potter had 41 points in 13 games for Kitchener last season and during his last year of junior A in 2009, he amassed 179 points in 35 games. Saunders was an offensive force with the Minto Cup silver

Jeremy Filipek drove in three runs, while Jerod Bartnik went 4-for-4 and scored three times in the victory on Tuesday night in B.C. Premier U18 Baseball League action at McLeod Athletic Park. Justin Geerts picked up the win, throwing two solid innings in relief.

The team also split a doubleheader on Sunday in Whalley against the Fraser Valley Chiefs (7-3).

Rams hit the field Cole Hodges hits the blocking pad during Langley Minor Football’s free skills camp for players between the ages of 5 and 18 on Sunday at McLeod Athletic Park. Garrett JAMES/ Langley Times
Langley Rams defensive back Jordan Linnen is off to Kamloops, where he will attend the B.C. Lions’ four-day rookie camp next month. Linnen, a Surrey native, is attending on a territorial junior exemption, and he hopes to impress the CFL team’s coaches enough to earn an invite to the Lions’ main camp the following week. Rookie camp is June 1-4. Linnen had 28 solo tackles and three assists last season, as well as forcing one fumble, recovering two others and intercepting one pass. The Rams, who moved to Langley this past offseason after a long and storied history in Surrey, are holding their own spring training camp beginning today (Friday) and running until Sunday at McLeod Athletic Park. About 100 players are expected at the camp, including most of the top junior football prospects from B.C. Minor Football and B.C. high school football programs. The team begins league play in the B.C. Junior Football Conference on July 30.

A tough start to the season has led to a coaching change for the Langley Jr. Thunder lacrosse squad. The team is 0-3 in the B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League standings and that has led to the resignation of Reynold Comeault. Chris Levis, an assistant in his second season with the team, takes over as head coach. Levis brings a wealth of lacrosse knowledge, both as a player and as a coach.
The Langley Mustangs are off to a running start to the track season. The track and field clubâ€™s junior development athletes (ages 9-13) were competing in their first meet of the season as the Norwesters Elementaries Meet at Swangard Stadium over the weekend. And the Mustangs returned with 26 medals and a new club record from nine-year-old Natalie Monro, who ran a blazing 9.29 in the 60 metre dash. Medal winners include: Vaughn Taylor also captured five gold medals and seven medals altogether. Gold â€” Tanika Dolfo (long jump); Teagan Richardson (high jump); Caroline Gillespie (high jump); Hanna Rolfe (high jump); Chloe Hetherington (high jump); Vaughn Taylor (long jump, high jump, 100m, 200m, 600m); Joel Harrison (high jump, long jump, 300m); Drey Blair (100m, shot put); Daniel Pavlic (100m, 200m). Silver â€” Jaclyn Pauly (100m, long jump); Tanika Dolfo (shot put); Vaughn Taylor (60m); Josiah Perovich (100m, 600m, 1000m). Bronze â€” Jaclyn Pauly (high jump); Vaughn Taylor (shot put). The Mustangs senior athletes were at a Valley Royals meet in Abbotsford, with Adam Osborne and Stuart Ellenwood both breaking their existing club records. Osborne cleared 4.10m in pole vault, while Ellenwood ran the 49.07 in the 400m. Also at the meet, Georgia Ellenwood successfully reached the qualifying point standard in the heptathlon. She is working towards representing Canada this summer at the world youth championships in France.

Deﬂated? The right amount of air in your tires can help in your fuel consumption efforts. When tires are not inflated enough, they generate too much heat, wear out faster, and give you much more resistance against the roads. Make sure when checking your air pressure the tires are warm. Check to see how much pressure should be in your tires, make sure that you do not overfill. Doing this regularly will give you a smooth ride, and help improve your fuel consumption.
