Cops look into mystery liquid drop

JOIE DE VIVRE

Staff writer

A man’s odd way of dealing with rejection caused a big headache for his neighbours and Langley RCMP. At about 2:20 a.m. on Jan. 28, police were called to a home in the 22100 block of Old Yale Road after they received a report of a suspicious incident. The complainant advised that he had seen a man drive towards his residence and place a bottle of liquid near a tree on his property. The homeowner took a closer look and became concerned when he detected a chemical odour, said Cpl. Holly Marks who speaks for the RCMP detachment. Officers found the bottle resting against the tree where it was dripping some dark red liquid. The Township fire department was called and firefighters advised police that no one should approach the bottle as the contents were unknown and believed to be hazardous. Langley RCMP’s Serious Crime Section took over the investigation, calling in the Clandestine Lab Team who capped the bottle of the unknown chemicals and took it away. Samples of the liquid were delivered to a chemist for analysis, and police expect test results will take up to two weeks. Marks said that officers know who the culprit is, and questioned him at his home. “The investigation suggests the 42-year-old Langley man did not intend to harm anyone,” Marks said. “He simply left the bottle on the property after he became frustrated with his ex-girlfriend’s new living arrangement.” No charges have yet been laid.

Richter calls for performance-based salaries Councillor’s motion to examine ‘very generous pay increase’ referred to Feb. 13 workshop NATASHA JONES Times Reporter

Township council members have ruled out having any bureaucrats becoming involved in an examination of council’s salary. But at the Jan. 23 meeting, council appeared to drag its feet on a motion by Councillor Kim Richter which supported a “detailed review” by staff. Richter’s motion, amended against her wishes, was ultimately referred to the Feb. 13 council workshop.

Four days before they were formally sworn into office on Dec. 5, council members received what Richter described as a “very generous pay increase.” Mayor Jack Froese’s annual salary rose by 12.6 per cent, jumping by almost $1,000 per month to $105,456 from $93,724. The salaries of Councillors David Davis, Grant Ward, Richter, Bob Long, Bev Dornan, Steve Ferguson, Charlie Fox and Michelle Sparrow rose 19 per cent, giving them almost $7,000 more a year and bringing their sala-

ries to $42,936, up from $36,043. Richter’s motion noted that the system used to arrive at those increases has been in place since 2000 and has not had an in-depth review since then. She wants it linked to performance, and not made automatically every three years, as it is now. Before it was referred to the council workshop, council amended the motion to exclude staff from the review, and substituted a citizen’s committee. Fox said that referring the motion

gives council the time and opportunity to think about the structure of the pay increases. All members of council either have other jobs or are collecting government pensions. Fox is a retired Langley School District principal; Froese and Ward are retired police officers, and Ferguson recently retired as a high school counsellor. Ferguson said that council raises are always a “very, very difficult” issue. continued, PAGE 4

‘A terribly wrongful act’ Vandals suspected in tree removal at Derby Hills Park

Langley teen charged in Cup riot More suspects sought in beating of Good Samaritan

The last thing Larri Woodrow expected when he joined other volunteers to plant trees at Derby Hills Park on Jan. 7 was to find that dozens of trees had been illegally chopped down. Woodrow and other volunteers planned to plant trees in the riparian zone of Yorkson Creek.

Five more accused rioters — four young men from Surrey and an unnamed 17-year-old from Langley — are the latest to be charged for their participation in the 2011 Stanley Cup riot last June. Three of the Surrey accused, 25-yearold Tanner Bedow, 19-year-old Armando Garcia and 18-year-old Brandon Wise, are charged with assaulting Vancouver resident Robert MacKay on the night of the riot. MacKay, described by police as a Good Samaritan who sought to restrain looters entering the Bay store on Georgia Street, was beaten in an incident caught on video and posted on YouTube. Vancouver Police released photos of six additional assailants police suspect of assaulting MacKay in hopes the public can help identify them. VPD Insp. Les Yeo called it a “cowardly and gutless” attack. All five of those newly charged are also charged with participating in a riot. Bedow and the Langley youth are also charged with break and enter. A fifth accused, 18-year-old Eric Hodson, also of Surrey, is also charged with mischief. A total of 43 alleged rioters are now charged with 114 offences. The VPD also released more than 250 additional photos of suspected rioters. It’s seeking public help in identifying them at an overhauled website at riot2011.vpd.ca.

New owners for controversial Athenry project Four-year process ‘too long’, says original project owner NATASHA JONES Times Reporter

Almost a year after their protracted development application was finally approved, the owners of Athenry Developments have sold the project. Tony McCamley confirmed on Wednesday that he has sold the development, which is

currently being built on four acres on the northeast corner of 83 Avenue and 208 Street. The purchaser is Peak Construction, a builder and restoration company based in Surrey. Among Peak’s major projects is Morgan Creek, an upscale housing estate in south Surrey. A year ago, Athenry received final approval for its development of houses, offices and shops, and an Irish Cultural Centre. The company will retain the Irish centre. Not long after Township council approved the

development, a group of residents launched legal action against the Township to halt the development. About a dozen neighbours said that some elements would impact the quality of their lives and reduce the value of their homes. They said that the proposed buildings are too tall and too close to their homes thus blocking out the sun, and that the proposed landscaping will be an insufficient barrier from the buildings. The case was dismissed by mutual consent in October, 2011. While the case may not

have delayed the start of construction, the whole process had taken four years and the McCamleys had had enough. “It took too long,” McCamley said on Jan. 25, adding that it could be another four before the project is complete. The family will still retain interest in the Irish Cultural Centre component of the development, McCamley said. By taking over Athenry, Peak will also assume responsibility for the moving and restoration of the Willoughby Community Hall, to which Athenry had committed $500,000.

Meanwhile, a Willoughby resident alarmed at the amount of road kill is urging Peak Construction to follow an excavation protocol that will help protect wildlife. Since the site has already been leveled, some of the procedures in the protocol no longer apply, Patricia Tallman told Doug Wilson of Peak Construction. But she would like the company to prohibit earth works during nesting or dening season if terrestrial wildlife is present, particularly rabbits, opossums, raccoons, squirrels.

The federal government wants commercial truck traffic heading to and from the U.S. to use a point of entry other than the Aldergrove-Lynden border crossing. The Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) says that security measures in place at the crossing are insufficient to intercept drugs and weapons. The Aldergrove facility is to be replaced, but the government hasn’t said if the new crossing will be equipped to handle commercial vehicles. The news has come as a shock to the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce which is now preparing a business case that supports retaining the crossing for commercial vehicles. Closure would be “devastating” from an economic point of view, said Chamber executive director Lynn Whitehouse. “We have sent a call to local businesses that if they use it for commercial purposes, we need to hear from them.” Word is spreading about the government’s plan which Whitehouse said would have a significant impact on the business community.

As Langley and the rest of the Lower Mainland continues to develop, border lineups will only increase, she said. Whitehouse said the Chamber appreciates the challenges of the Aldergrove-Lynden border crossing, but claims that the current level of commercial traffic can be maintained. In 2009, the crossing was closed for two weeks to reconfigure the truck booth so that it could be raised to the level of a truck cab, and lowered for passenger vehicles. The Times has obtained a letter to the Surrey Board of Trade from Public Safety Minister Vic Toews who said that CBSA determined that “a proper facility” is required to examine goods and vehicles entering Canada at the Aldergrove crossing. “Without such a facility . . . the safety and security of Canadians will be compromised,”Toews wrote in the letter last week. He said that the Aldergrove crossing was built primarily for passenger vehicles “and is not adequately equipped to process commercial vehicles.” Furthermore, although the crossing sees substantial commercial traffic it was not designed to accommodate that volume of

commercial traffic, he said, noting that there is no primary or secondary area to examine trucks. “These factors have resulted in a considerable increase in the risk of smuggling as well as a greater challenge to the CBSA’s ability to detect high-risk contraband and people,” he said. The Aldergrove border crossing buildings are being replaced, but Toews’ letter said that discussions will be held with CBSA and stakeholders “to determine whether or not the new facility will include commercial capabilities.” In August, 2010, a plan was developed to re-direct commercial carriers to AbbotsfordHuntingdon and Pacific Highway crossings which are open seven days a week, 24 hours a day. The Aldergrove crossing operates daily from 8 a.m. to midnight. CBSA issues permits to operators if they have to use the Aldergrove crossing. Toews said that 74 per cent of commercial carriers that used the Aldergrove facility now use the two larger points of entry. The remaining 26 per cent have permits to cross the border at Aldergrove.

Routley decision back on board table It looks like Routley parents are going to get an answer sooner rather than later about whether they will get a school in their neighbourhood. A special meeting of the Langley Board of Education has been called for Feb. 7 at 7 p.m. The only item currently on the agenda is for trustees to reconsider voting on the Routley land swap, confirmed Langley School District spokesperson Sandy Wakeling.

Township Council is also looking at voting on the land swap at its Feb. 6 meeting. Originally, council had deferred any decision, deciding instead to wait for a Board of Education decision. At the last school board meeting, trustees voted to put off any decision until they met with Township council to discuss “a possible resolution.” On the Feb. 7 agenda, trustees are recommended to receive a report supporting the land exchange of the Routley school site for a site in the Yorkson area.

ne more item destined for the recycling stream instead of a landfill can only be a good thing. So the City of Langley is to be commended for its decision to take part in a pilot project, called Blue + 2, designed to remove styrofoam and plastic bags and overwrap from the waste stream. Working with Emterra, a local recycling company, and the Canadian Plastics Industry Association, the City has asked that anyone who is selected do their best to participate fully in the experiment so that the results will accurately reflect how much of these materials can be kept out of dumps. It’s not like any of the players is doing this strictly out of the goodness of their hearts. Just over two years from now, in May, 2014, it will be the law. It also has to make sense financially — these are businesses, after all. And figuring out how to make it work with some sort of return is the challenge. Collecting light plastics and foam is entirely unlike tossing a box of metal cans or hard plastic containers into the back of a truck, where they can mix together and later be easily separated. The difficulty with both foam and softer plastics is that they break and tear and intermingle with other matrials, making them useless from a recycling standpoint. By now, most of the 800 participating homes, set out in blocks throughout the City, should have received packages informing them that they are part of the pilot and explaining what steps they are being asked to take. From Feb. 7 to April 27, simply keep the two materials separate from one another and from the rest of the households’ recycling and drop it at the curb for pickup in the clear bags provided. Easy enough, but the people running the pilot are well aware that even that little extra bit of effort will be too much for some. They know they can’t force residents to participate and that will be taken into account. But equally important, they say, is that people who aren’t included in the pilot don’t try to be. In other words, don’t smuggle your foam meat trays and paper towel wrappers across the street to the neighbour’s bags. Perhaps the hardest part will come at the end of April. Once the pilot is finished, everything will return to its current state, meaning participants will either resume tossing plastic and foam in the trash or (hopefully) make the extra effort to find the appropriate recycling depots. As anyone knows who has spent a Saturday driving all over town with a trunk full of leftover paint and dead batteries, it ain’t always easy. But it is worth it. Go to metrovancouverrecycles.org for a list of what gets recycled where.

ive months into their job action against the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association, teachers seem to be turning the screws tighter in their effort to negotiate a new contract. After essentially working to rule through the first half of the school year, not writing report cards, not attending staff meetings nor performing other administrative duties, teachers are now making more visible displays of their frustration. Burnaby teachers recently held their second “mark-in,” taking tests and papers with them to a mall food court after school was done for the day to show the public how much of their work is done beyond regular school hours. On Friday, teachers across the province were urged to wear black, as their way of illustrating a “dark day in education.” The teachers’ choice of date was not insignificant; Jan. 27 was the 10th anniversary of the Liberal government’s enactment of Bills 27 and 28, which stripped their contract of provisions for class sizes and composition. Both sides are still at the bargaining table, but there’s little sign of progress. Meanwhile, parents and students are caught in the middle. Without the feedback from proper report cards, parents can’t get a true reading on where their children stand, how they’re progressing, what areas might need remedial help. Students may also be suffering. While it’s hard to dispute the dedication and hard work of the teachers, even in the face of this contract squabble, as the impasse drags on it will be more and more difficult for them to shield their frustration from their classrooms. Both sides say they’re looking out for the future. The teachers say they are fighting for the future of education. The government says it is fighting for B.C.’s financial future. The time to settle their differences is now. —Burnaby News Leader The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Snow clearing bylaws not being enforced Editor: I thought that when it snows, the sidewalks are the responsibilities of the owners or renter of the property. During the last snowfall, how many streets were left uncleared? Why is that bylaw not enforced? Walking on the road is so dangerous, but even the City never cleared sidewalks. Then,when the sidewalks were cleared, you had to climb a two-foot bank of snow or slush when exiting your vehicle to get to the sidewalk. Why couldn’t the snow have been removed in the evening when no one was parked there, and the trucks weren’t needed for other snow removal at the time? Some of us aren’t that young and able to walk in slippery places that easily. I ask for some consideration for us, please. S. Douglas, Langley

No interest in sharing casino proceeds Editor: So the Township doesn’t have a casino to help keep taxes in check. Was it not offered the chance to have one in its space? Are we supposed to give in to the Township and amalgamate, or at the very least help by sharing the proceeds from our casino? I don’t think we should, and I sure hope this doesn’t happen. R.M. O’Donnell, Langley City The

Teachers’ demands a step toward bankruptcy

Natasha JONES/Langley Times file photo

Noel Booth Elementary school teacher Teresa Furuya marks the work of her Grade 4 and 5 students, at Willowbrook Shopping Centre on Jan. 23. Furuya and dozens of other teachers made the point that teaching goes beyond the 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. school day.

Broken down by hours, teacher salaries put other jobs to shame Editor: The 2011/2012 “Standard School Calendar” from the School Act indicates that school will be in session for 193 days with 186 days of instruction. As described in the story (LTA holds ‘mark-in’ at mall, The Times, Jan. 26) teachers are required to be at work 15 minutes before and after students leave making a paid work day of 6.5 hours. So over the 186 days in a school year a typical teacher is required to spend approximately 1,209 non-lunch hours at their workplace. Add another seven days (at eight hours per day) for professional development/report card preparation and you have a required work year of approximately 1,265 hours. In British Columbia, a

standard work year (for employees with two weeks of holidays) is 1,928 hours. So a teacher works approximately 663 fewer hours than a typically employed British Columbian. In order for teachers to approach the same number of work hours as a typical British Columbian they would have to do over 3.5 hours of marking for each and every day school was in session. While I know a lot of hard-working teachers, I have never heard of a teacher who could convince his/her students to produce enough homework to keep them gainfully marking for 3.5 hours each and every work night. In the same story I read that teachers earn an

O

average salary of $70,741. If you count only the work hours that works out to a rate of almost $56/hour. This is the average salary for an employee with an undergraduate degree? Even that magical teacher who somehow manages to work 1,928 hours a year pulls in a hefty $36.70/ hour. To top it all off, at the end of their career they are eligible for a pension which for a 35-year employee is equivalent to approximately 70 per cent of their annual salary, for life. It is no wonder students flood into teacher’s colleges. The salary and benefit package puts virtually any private sector job to shame. Blair King Langley

Editor: What are the Langley teachers trying to do? Do they want to help to put Langley on the fast track to be in the same financial position most of Europe is in today? People demanding too much for themselves regardless of the state of their city or country’s economics is driving them to bankruptcy. Please take a moment and be grateful to have a job. Asking for a 15 per cent increase over three years,10 weeks of bereavement leave, and 26 weeks of paid compassionate leave no matter the relationship. That is 36 weeks out of a 52-week year. Add up the professional days, Christmas, Easter, “compassionate leave,” on top of spring breaks, summer vacation. What time is there left to teach? Should there be a situation that too many teachers at one time have a death in their families or a relative or friend who they believe needs them, where does that leave the students? I might add that my husband and I never had fewer than 30 to 35 kids in a classroom all through school, and the year my husband graduated was the highest average SAT (scholastic aptitude test) scores in history. But then, we had Thanksgiving Day, a week off for Christmas break, Good Friday afternoon off (if you wanted to go to church) for our ‘spring break,’ and three months off for summer vacation. Until middle school we never had homework because the teacher taught during class time, which went from 8 a.m. to 3:30 or even 4 p.m. But then, of course, the teachers didn’t have the unions working to protect the teachers against the children’s learning (as shown by standard tests) and at the expense of the taxpayers. Many people in other professions — regular jobs — spend unpaid hours working past the time they get paid to do their work. Paula Bowman Aldergrove

David Esworthy was honoured in a way accorded to only a special few at a Township meeting: a standing ovation. Esworthy was lauded by council and an almost-full public gallery on Jan. 23 in recognition for his induction into the B.C Sports Hall of Fame. The accolade recognizes the 83-year-old as a builder of equestrian sports in the province. The 2012 class of inductees will be inducted on Sept. 20. The final list was chosen by a selection committee comprised of members of the BC Sports Hall of Fame board of trustees, the media and the sport community. The committee sifted through a list of more than 120 nominees. Esworthy has served as a rider, judge, steward, horse show organizer, horse show chair and industry advisor. “The award was a complete surprise and farthest from my thoughts,” he told council and the audience. “I’m still quite a bit overwhelmed by it.” The eight councillors left their desks to follow Esworthy to the podium and shake Esworthy’s hand.

BRENDA ANDERSON Times Reporter

Langley’s Gateway of Hope emergency shelter opened its doors for 13 nights in a row last month — from Jan. 10 to 22 — as the mercury dipped and stayed well below the -2 C mark. When temperatures fell below -12 C and wind chills dropped them even lower, the shelter opened its 30 emergency beds and extended its hours to help ensure that nobody would be, quite literally, left out in the cold. “Who would believe we’d get to minus 12? That’s absolutely frigid. In this climate people could lose their lives,� said the Salvation Army’s Major James Hagglund. On one of the worst nights of the cold snap, 17 people used the emergency shelter. Hagglund said that is a record for the Gate-

way of Hope, now in its third year of operation, and the average is closer to nine people per night. Still, he said, it is a far cry from the two or three who would take advantage of a warm bed at the shelter during its first winter. “Each year, people become more familiar, more comfortable, knowing they will be treated with respect,� he said. While the normal process is to open the emergency shelter at 7 p.m. and have it empty by 7 a.m., in cases of the “extreme, extreme weather� Langley experienced this month, the rules are flexible. Rather than maintain its regular hours, the shelter allowed users to remain inside until noon, with access to the dining room until 9 a.m. and the lounge, where they could watch TV until 12 p.m. About half the people who stayed overnight took advantage of the extended hours, said Hagglund.

The decision was made to extend the opening an extra few nights after temperatures climbed out of the sub-zero range because of the slushy wet mess left by the melting snow. Cold weather isn’t the only criteria for opening the shelter. If it rains for more than four nights in a row, on the fifth night it is opened to allow people to come inside and sleep in a warm, dry bed. “It’s not only the cold, but the wet that also plays havoc,� said Hagglund. When freezing cold or soggy weather sets in, the decision to open the emergency shelter is made by a committee, involving staff from the shelter as well as from Stepping Stone and the City of Langley’s bylaw officer. “From there, we hit the button and word goes out,� said Hagglund. Word is spread through notices, posted anywhere free meals

are served, as well as by police patrols and Langley’s outreach worker, Fraser Holland. But Hagglund said it’s not only up to these agencies to help the homeless when the weather takes a turn for the worse. The public must get involved, too, he said. “If people see anyone on the street (they should) bring them themselves or tell them about the shelter. Make sure they get out of the cold.� The major was quick to point out that the community has been making a big impact through critical donations of sleeping bags and socks, which the shelter distributes. “That’s the type of support I’ve found in Langley, and it’s appreciated,� he said. Donations of blankets/sleeping bags and warm socks can be dropped off at the Gateway of Hope at 5787 Langley Bypass. Go to gatewayofhope.ca for more information.

but I’ve learned how to go from a challenge and going ‘wow’, feeling good about yourself.” There have been lasting connections made among the hundred families who participated in the series. Some of it is through social networking sites such as Facebook, and some strong friendships have also come out of it. And some initiatives sparked by the participants, such as a community swimming pool and a community trolley bus service, are being actively pursued. “We all have different backgrounds and personalities, but at the end of the day we saw the hundred families come together. We learned to respect other opinions and that it needs more than just one voice to make things happen. “I really believe Aldergrove will change after this, it will get us motivated to fight for Aldergrove and get on to good and better things. “And if we need help we know where to go. We care about the people in our neighbourhood,” said Teresa. The Million Dollar Neighbourhood series airs Sundays on OWN Canada, and the first two segments can also be viewed online at ownca.oprah.com/Shows/Million-Dollar-Neighbourhood.aspx

“My family said yes, the story should be told. We’re not out for publicity and money — we have a story and I needed to get out of my cave and get to know my neighbours. “I had probably sheltered myself and did not see what was going on around me. Some of the stories you will hear on the series are heartbreaking ... no one prepares for tragedy.” Despite her initial misgivings, and the stress of fitting the show shootings into her work schedule, Teresa says she’s glad she changed her mind. Teresa has been a bank teller for more than 20 years, so she did not feel she needed help with her financial planning. On the other hand, the five years she took off work to care for Christopher had depleted all her savings. But more importantly, Teresa says she learned about true community and having a balanced life.“I was so afraid, I had not balanced my life properly. “Yes, we learned different ideas to increase our net worth and income, but for a lot of people, who cares about the emotional side? The experience showed me that it does matter if we use what people give. “I miss seeing these people every week now that it’s over,

Program brought back a sense of community, says participant

Teresa Sperger did not want to share her story or life with a reality TV show. As a single mother who had lost her youngest child to cancer in 2007 after a hard five-year battle filled with heartache and deprivation, she had put herself in a cocoon. Raw emotions had been numbed, the pain was buried deep inside, alongside the sealed boxes of Christopher’s toys and belongings. So when her 16-year-old son, Kyle, first signed the family up as participants in the Million Dollar Neighbourhood TV series,Teresa’s first reaction was an emphatic “no.” For Kyle it was the promise of an adventure. “It was something fun and new,” said Kyle. “I wanted to be on TV and I wanted to show off Aldergrove.” So Kyle filled out forms and sent emails to the producers of the series, ForceFour Entertainment in Vancouver. However, “We said no a few times,” said Teresa. “I’m a pretty private person and it seemed embarrassing. This was a social experiment and reality TV has a bad reputation. I was afraid they’d make Aldergrove look like a bunch of redneck deadbeats.” On the other hand, Teresa said since the series was planned for the Oprah Winfrey Network, she said she believed that anything connected with Oprah would be uplifting and life-affirming, and that “Aldergrove would be put in the right light.” She also discussed the proposition with family members and friends, such as the support team at the Cops for Cancer organization that had played an important role with Christopher’s cancer battle, and they all told Teresa to go for it.

The rain that came down in sheets failed to dampen the enthusiasm of several hundred supporters of the Alzheimer Society of B.C. on Sunday afternoon at Aldergrove Athletic Park. Participants came prepared with their rain slickers and umbrellas at the first ever Walk for Memories held for the Abbotsford-Aldergrove-Langley region, and they exceeded all expectations in fundraising. The latest tally as of Monday afternoon was in excess of $40,000, as donations continued to come in. Organizers say it is possible that a total of $50,000 could be realized. “We have 170 registered walkers here today and we’ve raised $30,000 — and still counting — for the Alzheimer Society,” said walk volunteer

55-year-old brother has also been diagnosed with it. Brenda is lucid and outspoken about the need to help each other, and for this reason she volunteered to act as the ‘honoree’ for the Aldergrove Walk for Memories. “It’s best to talk about dementia. We can’t pretend it’s not happening. We can’t walk away from the disease,” said Brenda. “There is no blueprint for Alzheimer’s, but there are treatments and there is a lot of support. And help raise funding for research so the scientists can do their job and that maybe one day we won’t have this cloud hanging over us.” Assistant chief Bruce Ferguson, another career fire fighter, said he’s known the Reddick family for 30 years and that it’s “heartbreaking” to see old friends having to deal with Alzheimer’s in their families. For this reason a large contingent of fire fighters turned up in support of the Reddicks, along with many people from all walks of life. “It’s estimated that one in three of British Columbians know someone close that is dealing with dementia,” said Alzheimer’s Society spokesperson Susan Rae. Rae also praised this community for its generosity to, and support of, the Alzheimer Society. “Since this was Aldergrove’s first walk we thought maybe a goal of $5,000 was reasonable. “The total of more than $30,000 raised here is just amazing.”

One year after he volunteered to restore the fire-damaged Fort Langley IGA sign, custom car builder Mark Unrau has finished the job. The result of his labour was undergoing some minor last-minute touch-ups at Unrau’s Vintage Coach Works shop on Landmark Way on Tuesday, Jan. 10, the day before he planned to give the 50-year-old red-and-white sign back to the Lee family who owns the IGA store. He put it together using parts from the original sign and two others of identical vintage. “I found [this side] face down in their parking lot,� he said, running a hand over the raised IGA logo. “Been there who knows how long.� For the benefit of a Times camera, Unrau showed how he rendered a crack in one of the translucent plastic ovals virtually invisible using a dental pick, razor and modeling glue to repair it. His fingers made a squeaking sound as he rubbed the now completely smooth surface. The once-yellowed IGA letters are now a proper bright white. The metal parts have been sandblasted smooth and powder coated grey. Unrau doesn’t think the colour is an exact match to the grey he found under the brown paint someone had slapped over the metal trim, but the sign is otherwise exactly as it was when it was first manufactured, with all-authentic 1960s parts and wiring. “It took many hours, but to look at it now, it was worth every minute,� Unrau said. “Can’t wait to see the IGA oval light up on the new store.� Unrau, a loyal customer of the store owned and operated by the Lee family on the corner of Mavis Avenue and Glover Road, offered to restore the sign after

A wheelbarrow – the gift that keeps on giving fodder for jokes W

hen we first moved to Langley, my practical husband noticed that the wheelbarrow had replaced the blender, espresso machine and dishwasher in importance and frequency of use. So, because I already had all the aforementioned kitchen aids, he decided to get me a new wheelbarrow for Christmas. To his credit, it was a Hummer of barrows, in stark contrast to the tiny, wobbly model I struggled with. Our arguments over whether to replace or patch its perpetually flat tire were getting a little heated. So, to his way of thinking, a new wheelbarrow would restore peace to the homestead and earn him marital Brownie points he might need to spend in the future. I, on the other hand, after a year spent knee deep in muck and manure, nursing stiff arms and aching back, was looking forward to a little bling for Christmas. Something shiny, sparkly or fuzzy that had absolutely nothing to do with horses. Visions of diamond studs or sheepskin slippers danced in my head.

New homeowners say views and location tops on their list

Finding a home at Tsawwassen Springs For Francis Cheung and his wife, finding a home that allowed them to just close the door behind them when they wanted to travel was extremely important. They found that perfect home at Tsawwassen Springs, by Shato Holdings and Talisman Homes. “It’s so close to the border and the ferries,” Cheung says. “We could just walk to the ferries.” He was immediately impressed by the quality of the workmanship on the homes, and says he looks forward to seeing the community when it is all complete. However, it wasn’t just the construction that he was looking for. “We’re right in the middle of the golf course,” he says. “The view was one of the most important things to us.”

Homeowner Dale Martin was looking to downsize after living in Tsawwassen and Ladner for 20 years, and found the entire community to be exactly what he wanted. “Once I saw the whole concept, I knew it was going to be a real community,” he says, adding that he also liked the idea of living on a golf course. “It’s very well designed,” Martin says. “There is no wasted space.” He was also impressed with the lengths Shato and Talisman were willing to go to ensure he was completely satisfied. “The whole experience was great,” he says. “They really bent over backwards to make sure (everything was okay) ... (Tradespeople) came in and fixed any defects, no questions asked.”

‘Langley is literally right over the hill’

Head into the great outdoors with Latis by Colin Oswin

Get up and get outside with Latis. A condo project from developer Kerkhoff Construction, Latis is located right in the heart of Cloverdale. The project will have just 34 units in total, which Craig Anderson, marketing manager at Pilothouse Real Estate, describes as “a very limited, very intimate selection of homes.” Latis places a big emphasis on providing outdoor space for its residents, with big balconies included with most units. The balconies here range from 90 up to 183 square feet, and one second-floor unit comes with a huge, 412-square-foot terrace. One unit on the top floor has a smaller 51-square-foot balcony, but Latis makes up for this, adding a 553-square-foot rooftop deck. And this suite isn’t alone – five of the top-floor units at Latis include these rooftop decks. Anderson says these types of rooftop spaces are extremely rare in Cloverdale. “We took an existing building structure and had fun with it,” he says. “We already had a roof and a flat building area, so it didn’t add a lot of cost.” The decks on the roof are all fenced off, and they also come equipped with electrical outlets and gas lines for entertainment and barbeques. And at four storeys, Latis will rise above the two- and three-storey buildings that dominate the neighbourhood, providing excellent views in all directions. “You have to invite your friends to come see it,” Anderson says. “Your place is where everyone is going to go in the summer.” In addition to the balconies, decks and ground-floor patios, individual gardens will be available for all units in the grounds surrounding the building, so even if you don’t purchase a unit with a rooftop patio, you’ll still have some outdoor space you can use to grow whatever you want. Latis features one- and two-bedroom suites, with one three-bedroom suite on the ground floor. All come with dens as well. And with 17 different layouts, buyers will find a lot of variety at Latis. In the kitchen, you’ll find a stainlesssteel appliance package, highlighted by a big, 24-inch-wide refrigerator and a classy Venmar designer hood fan over the stove. Under-cabinet puck lighting keeps the space nice and bright, and a two-basin undermount sink adds

Your place is where everyone is going to go in the summer,” says Pilothouse Real Estate marketing manager Craig Anderson.

carpeting, contemporary baseboards and a window trim package to highlight the big and bright windows. The development includes underground parking for cars as well as a storage space for bicycles. Anderson says he pushed hard for the inclusion of the community bike rack because the amenities in Cloverdale are so close by. You can pedal your way around the neighbourhood on errands and grocery runs or even to school at Kwantlen Polytechnic University. “I’m amazed at how close things are,”

he says. “Langley is literally right over the hill.” A major retail and commercial redevelopment underway at the site of the old Cloverdale Mall means buyers at Latis will arrive early in an up-andcoming area. “Drastic changes are coming to Cloverdale after decades,” Anderson says. “This is an opportunity 18 to 24 months before everyone else jumps in.” Homes at Latis start at $194,900. For more information visit latiscondos.com or call 604-575-0669.

to the modern feel of the space. The microwave and dishwasher are housed in two drawers under the counter, providing a cool, space-age touch. Kerkhoff used quartz for the kitchen and bathroom countertops. Since quartz is less porous than granite, Anderson says it makes for a superior countertop surface. “This is a level above granite,” he says. “We tried to stain it with red wine – it didn’t work.” The living rooms feature laminate floors, faux-wood window blinds and 5.5-inch baseboard moulding. In the bedroom, buyers will find broadloom

Assessment roll over $22 billion MIRANDA GATHERCOLE Times Reporter

The 2012 BC Assessment roll has been released, with Langley seeing a significant difference in property value increases between residential lots and commercial land. Residential Strata properties saw a one per cent decrease to one per cent increase in value, and single family homes saw 0.3 to three per cent increase. Commercial properties on the other hand saw five to 20 per cent increases in value, and industrial lands five to 10 per cent increases. One of the major property value changes occurred at the Walmart on 202 Street and 66 Avenue, which after going through a major expansion, has increased in value by 17 per cent from $83 million in 2011 to $97.2 million in 2012. Currently, the total value on the assessment roll in Langley is $22.1 billion, up

In relation, property taxes have increased only by 40 per cent over the same time period. “Although there is a relationship, it is not dollar for dollar by any means,” he said. “What the process is geared towards is looking at market evidence. So there is an onus to produce evidence to show that the assessment is incorrect,” Brown said. The process includes an inquiry and assessment of the property owner’s evidence, followed by an onsite inspection. PARP hearings take place between Feb. 1 and March 15, and are optional to attend. If unhappy with the PARP decision, a second level of appeal can be made to the Property Assessment Appeal Board by April 30. For more information, visit www.assessmentappeal. bc.ca.

Everyone Welcome

Warehouse One the Jean Store is once again running its annual jean drive for charity. Between Jan. 29 and Feb. 11, Langley customers are encouraged to donate gently used jeans for a good cause (additional clothing accepted too). To encourage donations of multiple pairs per customer, Warehouse One is offering 10 per cent off an entire purchase when one used pair is donated, 15 per cent off for two pairs donated and 20 per cent off for three or more pairs donated. Over the last seven years, thanks to its customers, Warehouse One has donated more than 58,000 pairs of jeans to local women’s shelters across Canada. As women often flee abusive relationships with only the clothes on their backs, the jeans are a needed and appreciated item. Warehouse One also sells reusable bags throughout the year with all proceeds going to the Canadian Women’s Foundation. In 2011, $20,000 was donated to CWF from the sale of reusable bags. The funds raised are used for programs implemented in shelters throughout Canada. “Our staff are working hard to get the word out to the public for this year’s jean drive for charity. In this eighth year of the event we hope to raise more than 10,000 pairs of jeans,” said Larry Millar, Warehouse One’s director of marketing. In Langley, Warehouse One is located at #5 6233 200 St.

Eagles soar to title in Regina Langley first B.C. team to win Regina Peewee Classic GARY AHUJA Times Sports

A group of 11 and 12-yearolds made history, becoming the first B.C. team to capture the title at the prestigious Regina Peewee Classic hockey tournament. This is the tournament’s 20th year, and while other teams from B.C. have come close, especially in recent years, it was the Langley A1 Eagles who got the job done. The Eagles won thanks to a 6-4 victory over the Yorkton Terriers, one of the top teams from Saskatchewan. “Everyone was focused and determined to help the team succeed,” said Langley coach Ryan Thorpe. The Eagles, who are hosting the B.C. provincial championships in March, are currently ranked fourth by B.C.

“So hopefully we can bottle that and keep it moving forward.”

Langley wound up winning 6-4. “If you are going to win at any level, you can’t have just one or two lines going,” Laurin said. “You need all three lines to be going and that was the case (in Regina). “The boys just came together.” “It was nice to get away and get back on track,” Thorpe said. “So hopefully we can bottle that and keep it going moving forward.” While the championship was nice, it is also a little frustrating for the coaching staff. “We are capable of playing like this all the time,” Thorpe said. “They are 11 and 12 years old and are going to show their age from time to time (but) we would love to see them play like this all the time.” Eagles captain and defenceman Alec Capstick earned most valuable player honours, as well as being named a first-team all-star. Goaltender Braedon Fleming and forward James Malm were also first-team all-stars.

There will be some changes behind the bench for the Langley Junior Thunder and the Intermediate Thunder for the upcoming box lacrosse season. Chris Levis is stepping down as head coach of the junior team but will remain as a part-time associate coach. The move down is because Levis is returning to play one more season in the Western Lacrosse Association. Replacing him will be Dave Wilfong, who guided the intermediate Thunder to a third-place finish at the provincial championships. Wilfong played 15 seasons in the WLA for the Vancouver Burrards and Coquitlam Adanacs. He twice attended the Mann Cup as a player. His coaching resume includes winning provincial and national championships at the midget A1 level, as well as taking a junior A team to the Minto Cup championships. Rob Dalzell will be an assistant coach. Dalzell is a former scoring champ at both the intermediate and junior A level. He also played in the 1980 Minto Cup under Wilfong. At the WLA level, Dalzell was the league rookie of the year and an all-star. And with Wilfong’s promotion to the junior Thunder, Chase Porter takes over as head coach of the intermediate Thunder. Porter played for the Thunder until 2010 and gained coaching experience last year as head coach of the Chilliwack midget A1 squad. “We believe that we have the depth and experience to take our program to the next level,” said Thunder general manager Brock Rose. Both Thunder teams begin workouts later this month.

Spartans post-season bound after beating Bisons TWU volleyball teams sit first and second, respectively in conference standings The Trinity Western Spartans qualified for the post-season after posting a pair of weekend victories over the Manitoba Bisons in Winnipeg. The Spartans improved to 12-4 after a 3-1 (25-22,2523,15-25,25-23) and a 3-0 (25-15,25-19,2517) victories over the Bisons, who fell to 9-7 in the Canada West womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s volleyball standings.

Clan dominate Spartans SAVE BIG!

The Simon Fraser Clan men’s hockey team remains unbeaten on the season after thrashing the Trinity Western Spartans 8-1. The Spartans kept the game close through 20 minutes, trailing 2-1, but the visiting Clan used a four-goal second period to take control in the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League game on Friday at the Langley Events Centre. The Clan outshot the Spartans 45-21 and improved to 13-0-3. Trinity Western fell to 3-9-3. “Well, 21 shots isn’t going to beat a team like this,” commented coach Dwayne Lowdermilk. “There were times when we had them hemmed in their own zone and making plays but then we would only get one shot and they would get two or three shots and finish their chances. “They’re a strong club.” Josh Gordon had the lone Spartans goal. “When we skate, we can skate with anyone but we need to be able to drive the net at the right times and put the puck on the net at the right times but in the end, we got outshot 45-21 and that’s indicative of the score,” Lowdermilk said. Trinity Western hosts a pair of games at the LEC, Friday against the Selkirk

TWU Spartans captain Brad Bakken advances the puck despite a slash from a member of the SFU Clan during B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League action at the Langley Events Centre on Friday. Saints and Saturday versus the Okanagan Coyotes. ••••• Two seconds are all that separated Christian Desjarlais from a medal at the Canada West swimming championships. The first-year Trinity Western Spartans swimmer was fourth in the 400m freestyle

over the weekend in Edmonton. He was the lone Spartan to qualify for an ‘A’ final and after finishing seventh in the preliminaries, Desjarlais improved by more than three seconds, finishing the final in 4:03.03. “All of our swimmers had second swims tonight, so that was good, and the whole meet was

a good experience for our team,” said coach Brian Metcalfe. “We had some good racing and now we have something to build upon for next year.We have lots of work to do but it was a good meet overall.” The Spartans men’s and women’s teams both placed eighth, with 60 and 42 points, respectively.
