NATASHA JONES Times Reporter

A female Langley elementary school teacher has been charged with sexually assaulting a male student. Deborah Ralph, 57, was charged on Dec. 1 with one count of sexual assault and one of sexual interference. The alleged victim was a student at James Kennedy Elementary in Walnut Grove where Ralph taught from September, 1987 to June, 2010. The offences did not take place in the school or a school-related activity, Supt. Derek Cooke revealed at a news conference on Thursday afternoon. He would not say how old the student was when the alleged offences took place. Cpl. Holly Marks, who Supt. Derek speaks for Langley RCMP, Cooke confirmed that Ralph is married. But Marks would not say if Ralph has children. Cheryle Beaumont, superintendent of Langley schools, said that Ralph was suspended from her teaching post at Langley Fundamental Elementary where she has taught since September, 2010. She has been suspended with pay. Cooke said that the charges relate to incidents that are said to have occurred from December, 1998 to June, 2001. He said that the alleged victim contacted Langley RCMP on Nov. 8, and Ralph was arrested the next day. Beaumont was asked if the news came as a shock. “I can assure you that it did,” she told the news conference. Ralph had previously been the complainant’s teacher, but was not at the time of the offences, Cooke said. continued, PAGE 5

Langley Pro-Life Society sponsored a float featuring the Nativity scene in which Mary was played by Bethany Zimmerman, and the angel and Joseph by her siblings, Carrie-Ann and Matthias. The parade, held on Saturday in Langley City, marks the beginning of the Christmas season. It was followed by a celebration and tree lighting in Douglas Park.

Counterattack kicks off in Langley Despite court ruling, drunk drivers still face stiff penalties, senior Mountie warns Staff Writer

The annual Counterattack campaign kicked off in Langley on Friday (Dec. 2) with Superintendent Norm Gaumont, head of RCMP Traffic Services in the Lower Mainland, warning impaired drivers still face criminal penalties, even though a portion of the new drinking and driving laws

have just been struck down by the courts as unconstitutional. “Should someone fall within the ‘warn range’ and blow between .06-08, they still face being prohibited from driving for three, seven or 30 days, and their car may be impounded,” Gaumont said. “And for those who fail or refuse the roadside screening device, they will face a 24-hour impoundment of their vehicle, and if the evidence supports it, we will proceed with criminal charges.” The Counterattack campaign focused on 216 Street and Glover Road in Milner, catching motorists unaware in the portion of the road check that focused on drivers who used cell phones, and vehicle occu-

pants who failed to use their seat belts. At first glance, the long line of vehicles looked like a typical Friday afternoon rush hour traffic jam, but unknown to the motorists, unmarked police cars and officers using telescopes were waiting to pull over offending drivers just east of the Esso gas station. Officers from Langley RCMP’s traffic section and the Langley-based Integrated Road Safety Unit handed out scores of tickets. On the west side of Glover Road, a second road block was set up focusing on impaired drivers or those who were carrying illegal drugs. continued, PAGE 5

Lockdown at Simonds

Bureau needs more sponsors There’s an increase in the number of families signing up at the Langley Christmas Bureau, but the volunteers are concerned that only 349 of the 525 families already signed up have a sponsor. “We try our best each year to sponsor our families out to businesses or individuals who will step up and provide food for the clients for Christmas,” said a volunteer. Now in its 38th year of operation, the Langley Christmas Bureau provides food and gifts for the less fortunate families in the community. Among the families who have signed up is a mother with 10-monthold twins and two other young children. She is unable to return to work. Another young family, who moved to B.C. with a promise of work that didn’t materialize, is struggling to get by so they don’t have to uproot their children during the

school year. There are refugee families who have been settled in Langley after escaping atrocities and who are working at menial jobs just to have food. Without the kind heart of the community, there will be no Christmas for them and their children. If you can help, check out sponsorship guidelines on the website at: www. langleychristmasbureau. com, or call the LCB at 604 530-3001. The bureau is located at the former Coast Capital Savings building at 20550 Fraser Hwy. People who are unable to sponsor a family, can drop off new, unwrapped toys for the Langley Christmas Bureau at Shine Jewels, 9234 Glover Rd. in Fort Langley. Other businesses in Fort Langley’s Village Square, 23343 Mavis Ave., collecting items for teens for the Christmas Bureau.

Report of two boys with guns prompts police action NATASHA JONES Times Reporter

Mufford closed after pole damaged A semi-trailer truck that turned a little too tightly took out a power pole and forced the closure of Mufford Crescent in Langley on Monday morning (Dec. 5). It forced the closure of Mufford Crescent to traffic between 204 Street and Glover Road for most of

the morning, while BC Hydro crews worked to repair the damaged utility pole. Power was cut to a number of local businesses and to the Township of Langley Civic Facility. There were no reports of injuries.

Judge rejects bid for recount of mayor’s race NATASHA JONES Times Reporter

One of Mayor Rick Green’s nominators sought a recount of the Nov. 19 civic election results, in which Green was defeated by Jack Froese. But the bid was rejected by a provincial court judge because the affidavit filed on his behalf lacked pertinent information. In a statement issued on Wednesday, the Township revealed that an application was filed by Thomas Braaten on Monday, Nov. 29, shortly before the deadline for an appeal.

Braaten was one of the people who signed Green’s nomination papers in his bid for re-election. The application sought a manual recount of votes in the Township. In a hearing on Wednesday morning, Braaten told Justice Peder Gulbransen that the recount was to be restricted to one electronic voting machine. In the application, filed on Nov. 28, Braaten wrote: “It has come to my attention that there were problems with one or more of the Diebold vote counting machines used in the Nov. 19, 2011 election. This

may have resulted in an inaccurate voted count.” The affidavit claims that the people operating the voting machines “were either not given or did not understand the instructions for operating these machines resulting in there (sic) use being varied throughout the election poling (sic) stations with the specific result being that the way this information was inputted into the computer is not reliable and it is my specific belief that a physical count of the actual ballots is necessary to determine the actual result of the elec-

tion for the Township of Langley.” According to the Township statement, Gulbransen denied the application because the applicant’s affidavit, required as part of the application, “lacked the factual information necessary to establish that the requirements for a judicial recount had been met.” In the mayor’s race on election night, Green finished last in a field of three, with 4,466 votes. Jack Froese was elected mayor with 7,706 votes, and runner up Mel Kositsky, an incumbent councillor, had 6,522.

Simonds Elementary School was locked down for about 30 minutes on Wednesday afternoon after a daycare worker saw two boys with guns. “They were running away from the school,” said Cpl. Holly Marks, who speaks for Langley RCMP. Police locked down the school as a precaution, Marks said. Classes had ended for the day, but a number of staff, parents and students were inside for a book fair, and the daycare was still open. Several police vehicles descended on the Langley City school, which is located at 20190 - 48 Ave.Air One and dog handlers were brought in, but there was no sign of the boys, Marks said. She said that police are very concerned about the incident. “That is why we treated it with the utmost concern,” she said. The incident occurred only days after a similar one at Langley Secondary. On Nov. 22, Langley Secondary School was locked down for several hours after reports that a male entered the school carrying a weapon. The incident, which sparked the closure of the airspace above Langley Regional Airport and the lockdown of Christian Life Assembly to the west of the school, ended after several hours with the arrest of a 17-year-old LSS student who was found to have a replica gun. Police said he will not be charged.

For normal weight women, a gain of 11.5 kg to 16 kg is good. For overweight women the gain should be between 7 kg and 11 kg. For obese women, the gain should be no more than 7 kg.

Ralph not allowed contact with anyone under age 16 Assault, from PAGE 1

Cooke called the allegations “extremely serious in nature,” adding that the detachment’s Serious Crime Unit launched an investigation as soon as the allegation was made. Ralph was released on Nov. 10 with several conditions. Among them, she is prohibited from having contact with the student who made the allegations, certain other former students, and anyone under the age of 16. Cooke said that police will

investigate whether or not there are other victims and have already interviewed several people with regard to the allegations against Ralph. “There is no evidence that there is more than one victim,” Cooke said. “However, we are not prepared to rule out that possibility.” He said that parents who suspect their child may have been victimized should contact the RCMP. He discouraged parents from interviewing their children because the RCMP has support

personnel and specially trained investigators to interview children about situations of this nature. Concerned parents are asked to contact the Langley RCMP at 604 532-3200 to be put in touch with a Serious Crimes investigator. “There are serious concerns for contamination when it comes to a child’s recollections of a particular event or incident.,” Cooke said. Ralph’s next court appearance is at 9:30 a.m. on Dec. 19 in Provincial Court in Surrey.

The correct decision

Penalties reasonable


n Wednesday, the B.C. Supreme Court upheld most of the province’s new drinking and driving laws, with a notable exception. That exception — drivers who are believed to have blood alcohol samples over .08 will no longer be subject to automatic roadside penalties, but instead may be tested, and then (depending on the test results) charged with impaired driving. The new strict laws have had a dramatic effect on many people. More than 23,000 people have been caught up in the net since the new laws went into effect about 14 months ago. Most of them received suspensions and stiff monetary penalties. Many others have changed their habits, in some cases drastically. They are either not drinking at all before driving, or being very cautious if they plan to drive. Businesses which depend on the sales of alcohol have been hard hit, with some offering rides home as an incentive. But there has been a definite shift in attitudes, particularly in areas like Langley where transit is not a viable option. Even with one part of the new penalties being overturned, the new, get tough approach has likely caused a permanent change in societal attitudes towards drinking and driving. This is for the better. The province estimates that at least 45 lives have been saved, and while that is simply conjecture, the number of alcoholrelated deaths on the roads has fallen quite dramatically in the past year. The court decision does, however, come to the welcome conclusion that inordinately stiff penalties cannot be levied by police with virtually no chance to question the decision. Driving with a blood alcohol level over .08 is a criminal offence. Criminals don’t get charged, convicted and fined on the spot when they commit other offences. They are subject to the judicial process, which comes to a final decision of guilt or innocence based on testimony, the admissibility of evidence and the facts in front of the judge or jury. The province has no right, under the constitution, to decide on criminal law. That authority belongs to Ottawa. The province can levy fines for offences related to drivers’ licences and the use of roads.That’s why the stiff penalties remain for those who blow in the ‘warn’ range of .05 to .08. There are no Criminal Code offences involved. No one will seriously argue that drinking and driving is a good thing. continued, PAGE 7

B.C. Supreme Court judge has ruled that the toughest of the province’s new impaired driving penalties infringe people’s constitutional right to a fair trial. Increased roadside penalties for blowing in the “warn” range of blood alcohol, from .05 to .08 per cent, are permissible. But, the judge ruled Wednesday, drivers who blow more than .08 should have a chance to defend themselves in court, before their vehicles are impounded for 30 days and they face thousands of dollars in penalties. Just in time for Christmas. Just a week earlier, Premier Christy Clark stood on the steps of the B.C. Legislature, surrounded by RCMP officers, and announced that since the new impaired driving laws were introduced just over a year ago, alcohol-related driving deaths have decreased 40 per cent. There were 68 alcohol-related deaths across B.C. in the 12 months that ended Sept. 30, compared with 113 deaths in the previous 12 months. Question: saving lives in an infringement on whose rights? What about those of Laurel Middelaer, whose four-year-old daughter Alexa was struck and killed by an impaired driver in Delta in 2008? Fact is, pubs and restaurants started crying in their beers as soon as the new laws were introduced because people wouldn’t buy more than one drink, or were just staying home — off the roads — fearing the expensive penalties. Police can still fine drivers up to $450 and impound vehicles for up to three days. But the government now has to amend the laws to allow breathalyzer readings to be challenged. That won’t happen, however, until the legislature reopens in the spring. Even then, officers are going to have to revert back to the criminal law and waste time taking people back to stations for breathalyzer tests and spend time in court if the results are challenged. continued, PAGE 7 The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Spirit of Christmas already here Editor: The Christmas spirit was already showing itself to us, and this took place even before December arrived. On Wednesday, Nov. 30, we were shopping in Costco in Langley and had a wonderful thing happen to us.! We are in our 70s. We were in line at the cashier, when my wife commented to the young lady who was ahead of us that the poinsettias she was buying were beautiful. This young lady said these were the smaller ones, and that the store had much larger ones also. My wife Gerry said “Yes, I saw the big ones, but I didn’t see any this size or I would have bought one.” Now that we were next in line to check out, she told her that we’d have to come back and get one after we checked out.

After we had checked out, she decided not to bother going back in. We were in the parking lot loading up our car, when this young lady who had been in line ahead of us came up to Gerry and handed her this beautiful red poinsettia. She said “This is for you. Merry Christmas and God bless you.” Now this caught us both speechless, as we had never laid eyes on this young lady before, and we sure didn’t know who she was. Gerry explained, “My goodness, you don’t have to do this. I can buy my own, but I thank you, you are a real dear soul, and a very Merry Christmas to you also.” To this the young lady said, “I bought a number of them so I would have them to give away in the spirit of Christmas. So it is yours and may you have a very Merry

Christmas.” Gerry and I both thanked her and before we knew it she was on her way, and we didn’t even get a chance to find out who she was. One thing I have to say is this — that young lady made our day. With all that is going on right now, it is just wonderful of her to show us that there is still some people who know the real meaning of Christmas. I wish we knew who she was so we could show her how much her act of kindness means to us, and I pray that God will bless her as she has been a blessing to us. Merry Christmas, and may we find peace on Earth. Gerry and Jim Glavin, Langley

Tree preservation, community involvement would be a good first step in Brookswood Editor: Now that the election is over and a majority of the 25 per cent who voted chose to keep the incumbents in the Township, save for the loss of Mel Kositsky, it’s time for all of us to make our government accountable. I would like to suggest that the first motion is to remove the title “official” from the Brookswood/Fernridge community plan and end any outside contracting with development interests. Like many, I have lived here for 14 years and have never been consulted. In the same neighbourhood, a kids’ elevated playhouse is targeted, yet when absentee land owners cleared five acres of second growth conifers near 28 Avenue

and 200 Street, our elected officials did not lift a finger (save suggesting they not burn at night), and the impact remains an eyesore. There is a loss of habitat, loss of privacy, and threat of wind throw to the neighbouring houses. With the Township’s modus operandi of ignoring any tree protection and mass clearing, they have avoided recommendations for years, including the benign concept of leaving trees within 10 feet of the fence line intact, or else grinding the stumps to keep neighbours’ tree roots intact. If our council — present and past — had an interest in a long term vision, retaining the feeling of super natural

B.C. and clustering homes within the landscape (as is written in Willoughby’s OCP), it would make the Township more valuable. It is estimated that global deforestation is taking place at a rate of 6.4 million hectares a year. That makes us a part of the problem, not the solution. If nothing is done, let me be a realist in the 2014 election, and just write in the names of department directors and the Township administrator, because it seems that they are making the recommendations and decisions.

Editor: The Weghsteen family would like to express our soulfelt appreciation to the following young men: Mr. Kris Jacobson, Mr. Byron Simon and Mr. Ryley Patterson, for saving Dean Weghsteen’s life with their swift action in performing CPR after Dean collapsed from cardiac arrest.

It has been brought to our attention repeatedly at the Royal Columbian Hospital that if it were not for these three young men and their immediate action, Dean would not have survived. Words do not seem adequate for what we are feeling, but our souls will be for-

ever grateful to you young men — to you our heroes. We would also like to thank the Langley Fire Department, paramedics and RCMP for your life-saving response. God bless all of you — always. The Weghsteen family

Cathleen Vecchiato, Langley

Three young men are heroes to one family


Judge made mistake in throwing out law from PAGE 6

The goal of a police officer is to keep the public safe. But this ruling leaves them and the B.C. government little choice but to back down on the harsher roadside penalties. The

Imposing the most severe roadside penalties on drivers who choose to ignore the laws and put the lives of others at risk, in our view, is a reasonable limit in our free and democratic society. If you don’t want

to pay, don’t drink and drive. In this case, the tougher laws were working. It is the judge who failed. —Maple Ridge News (Black Press)

Why do .05 drivers not have legal recourse? Editor: The recent ruling by the B.C. Supreme Court changes the drunk driving law to make it unreasonable for drivers who blow over .08 to get a 90-day suspension, but it is deemed reasonable for drivers who blow .05 and up to .08 to get a 30-day suspension and probably $4,000 in charges. This leaves the question: Why is it reasonable to allow a police officer to act as “judge, jury and executioner” (a term used in a newspaper article) in the case of drivers with blood alcohol levels of .05 up to .08, but unreasonable for them to act the same way in cases where the level is over .08. Why is it reasonable to seize a person’s vehicle for three, seven, or 30 days and deny that person due process of law. The police officer should issue a summons to drivers with blood alcohol levels of .05 and up to .08, so the driver can have his or her day in court. If the police officer should not act as “judge, jury and executioner,” then we should ensure they do not act as “judge, jury etc.” in any type of police case. Roger Layton, Langley


Law must be revised from PAGE 6

The more people keep the two activities apart, the better. But that does not mean that the province should act with impunity in matters which clearly involve possible criminal activity. Stiff administrative penaIties remain as possibilities for many drivers, so there is no excuse to drink and drive over the Christmas holidays, or at any other time. It is now up to the province to revise the law, so that it provides proper safeguards for people accused of the criminal offence of impaired driving.

‘Best turnout ever’ at Langley City Christmas parade In woolly hats and mittens weather, between 5,000 and 6,000 people watched the Magic of Christmas parade on Saturday evening. With almost 50 floats, the parade took longer to wind its way several blocks along Fraser Highway from 203 Street before the floats dissipated and crowds gathered at Douglas Park

for more fun and entertainment. In some areas along the route crowds stood five deep, applauding as the 48 floats passed by. “It was by far the best turnout,” said Teri James of the Downtown Langley Business Association, which sponsored the event. Although it was cold, the night was clear

and bright, and that helped boost the turnout, James said. The DLBA also turned to social media such as Facebook to spread the word about the event, the eighth the organization has sponsored. “It was a perfect night,” James said, adding that comments from spectators were positive.

The event in Douglas Park that followed the parade was re-organized so that activities were centered outdoors.An ice sculpture, entertainment from the First Capital Chorus, Payton Rector and others on the Spirit Square stage and the lighting of the Christmas tree by Santa were among the highlights. — Natasha Jones

Mayor Froese takes the helm NATASHA JONES Times Reporter

Jack Froese took the oath of office as Langley Township’s new mayor on Monday night, called for council members to focus their energies on the good of the community, and urged more community consultation for development. Justice John Lenaghan presided over the swearing in of Froese and his new council, while Victor Hsu sang O Canada and Pastor Brent Cantelon of Christian Life Assembly offered the prayer to guide council over the next three years. Froese defeated the incumbent mayor, Rick Green, in a three-way race on Nov. 19. The other contestant was incumbent Mel Kositsky. The defeat of Green and Kositsky made way for two new faces: David Davis and Michelle Sparrow. They join incumbent councillors Grant Ward, Charlie Fox, Bob Long, Kim Richter, Bev Dornan and Steve Ferguson. Green’s term as mayor was punctuated by hostility and volatility, and in his inaugural speech, Froese commented that “people will always have different ideas, opinions, and personalities.” He added:“It is imperative that we put those personal differences aside and work together as a team for the greater good, the good of this community. Respect and integrity are of the utmost

importance for this council to truly serve our residents; we will listen and hear what each other and the community has to say so that sound decisions can move this community forward.” Froese thanked volunteers and the families of candidates for their hard work “in making this election truly democratic and giving our voters choice.” Among the guests were former mayor Kurt Alberts and Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender. Several City council members also attended the swearing-in ceremony. Froese acknowledged that he faces a “steep learning curve.” He said that the wisdom, experience, and fresh ideas from a mix of veteran councillors and novices “will serve our residents well and set a productive course for the next three years.” He said: “During this term, I expect to see great things happening for the Township of Langley as we assume our proper place as a thriving residential and business destination in the Lower Mainland. I have lived in, raised a family, and run a business in the Township for more than 30 years, and know that our community has all the elements required to provide an exceptional quality of life for those who live and work here.” He predicted that the Township will soon embark on a number of advancements. “We are in an exciting position

right now,” Froese said. “Our business climate is healthy and we will work to bring new jobs to the community. In the decades to come, thousands of new residents will be moving to the Township making Langley their home.” He said that balancing urban growth with respect for Langley’s heritage and rural lands “is a challenge we cannot take for granted. We must work hard now to ensure current residents and newcomers alike continue to receive the amenities and services they need, and enjoy the lifestyle they have come to expect from our community.” Froese pledged “to build on the open and co-operative relationship we have with our neighbouring municipalities, especially the City of Langley, our school board, TransLink and the regional boards, as we work towards the common goal of making the entire region more liveable and sustainable for future generations.” Froese said the Township needs to be more proactive in providing for a better mechanism that allows input from the community in new developments before they come to council for approval. He said that a new community planning task force will look at how the Township can be more responsive to community and industry needs by providing meaningful input and cooperation when new developments are proposed.

Pool party at W.C. Blair Free splash in the pool to celebrate 25th anniversary NATASHA JONES Times Reporter

The first wave pool in B.C. is 25 years old, and Langley residents are being invited to a free splash to mark the occasion. Admission to the W.C. Blair Recreation Centre will be free from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 10; staff and

volunteers, some of whom share that quarter century affiliation with the facility, will then celebrate a reunion from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Last month, Lesley Visser, the Township’s community recreation manager, introduced to council two of the guests who will attend the celebration. One is Charlotte Gardner, a volunteer who has been spoiling staff with zucchini chocolate cake since 1988, and Fran Young who has volunteered at the centre since it opened in 1986, and was active in recruiting public support in the run-up to the

1985 referendum. The pool opened its doors on Dec. 12, 1986 and, as the first facility in the province with a wave pool, the occasion drew people from all across B.C. and Washington state. Since then, Visser told council, “the community has grown up around the facility and helped to shape the programs and services offered today.” The anniversary will include the unveiling of a mural, designed and created by the Langley Arts Council, and the continued, PAGE 15

Two air ambulances parked at a 256 Street field await two men who were trapped inside an overturned truck nearby on Fraser Highway on Monday afternoon.

Helicopters used to evacuate injured in two separate crashes

DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter

Three people were hurt in two unrelated traffic accidents in Aldergrove on Monday afternoon. Two occupants of a cherrypicker or “bucket” truck were transported to hospital by air ambulance after the vehicle ended up overturned in a ditch in the 25300 block of Fraser

Highway around 12:30 p.m. The two men had to be cut out of the upside-down truck, a witness said. Langley RCMP said no other vehicle was involved in the collision. Later in the day, around 2:20 p.m., a female traffic flagger suffered what RCMP described as non-life-threatening injuries when she was hit by a vehicle in the 26200 block of 56 Avenue.


Police said speed appeared to be a factor. The flagger was also taken from the scene by helicopter for medical attention. Roads were closed and traffic was tied up in both cases. In the case of the flagger, traffic backed up on nearby Highway 1, as it was challenging to exit the freeway at 264 Street due to closed roads and the subsequent congestion.

cutting of the famous chocolate cake. Areas will be set up inside to showcase recreation, culture, and parks programming, pictures and memorabilia. Visitors can try a fitness or yoga class, play games, or participate in activities such as arts and crafts. Games and races will be offered in the pool, where the famous waves will be bigger and stronger for the special event. As well, visitors can see ‘Waves of Memories’ and ‘Waves of the Future’ presentations, enjoy refreshments, play trivia, and enter to win draw prizes. Visitors can also record their memories on the wall, and

experience a blast from the past. Memorabilia from the facility over the past 25 years will be on display, including a photo that one member of Township council remembers well: Charlie Fox, his wife, and two young children were featured in the first pamphlet advertising the W.C. Blair Recreation Centre. Fox commented that the opening of the Blair recreation complex and pool “was perfect timing for our family.” He said that his children and many of their friends took lessons at the pool until they become proficient swimmers. At the time, the W.C. Blair centre was the only place to get year-round swimming lessons.

“A generation of children in our community benefited from the lessons given here, whether they be swimming or life guarding. It is a great facility that has served the community well and will continue to do so for years to come,” Fox said. Ninety minutes after the doors close to the public, the party will resume as a reunion for those who have worked and volunteered over the past 25 years. Visser noted in a report to council that the Blair rec centre has been a major employer of youth, with lifeguards, dance instructors, and preschool teachers and so on going on to enjoy careers as lawyers, doctors, paramedics and teachers.

Spend the holidays counting birds Wondering what to do for the holidays? Why not participate in a Christmas bird count? In 1900, American ornithologist Frank Chapman asked birders across North America to count birds on Christmas Day and submit the results in the first Christmas Bird Census.The Christmas Bird Count is now conducted in more than 2,000 locations across Canada, the US, Latin America, and the Caribbean. For more information about attending a local bird count visit the Langley Field Naturalists website at www. langleyfieldnaturalists. org. Meanwhile, residents can make their voices heard about the use of cosmetic pesticides by filling out a questionnaire. The provincial government is considering a provincewide ban on cosmetic pesticides and have set up an online questionnaire. It is short and to the point. The Canadian Cancer Society has developed a model response to the questionnaire at www. Green Wednesday: The Nature of Cities. If you’re an urbanite, you might think of nature as something that exists outside of the city limits.That thinking is prevalent and may contribute to the growth of nature deficit disorder among our kids . . . and ourselves. The Nature of Cities explores efforts around the world to merge built and natural environments, and on

Green Wednesdays the Green Ideas Network and Kwantlen Polytechnic’s School of Horticulture (Langley campus) will meet on Wednesday, Dec. 7 in the auditorium or room 1030. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show starts at 7 p.m. Please RSVP to Gary Jones at or call 604-599-3311. On Dec. 13, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.., LELS will host a holiday social, with roast hotdogs and marshmallows on the fire, hot chocolate.There will be a silent auction and prizes.

Contact Kim at or call 604-532-3513, if you plan to attend. On Saturday, Dec. 17, join LEPS staff to make native plant table centerpieces that are environmentally friendly, cost effective, and fun to make.This event runs from 10 a.m. to noon. Participants must bring a shallow bowl or reuse a centerpiece plate from a flower shop. RSVP to Kim by calling 604-532-3513 or email kgreenwood@tol. ca. Cost by donation. In 2009, 4.5 million turkeys were gobbled

up by Canadians, 5.8 million litres of eggnog was sold that December and approximately 5.8 million Christmas trees were harvested. LEPS asks, Why not try something new this year? Tree farms in Langley are now sell living, potted Christmas trees that can be replanted after the holidays, and the Yorkson Watershed Stewardship Committee can help you find a great place to plant it. Contact Lina at lazeez@ or call 604-5323517 before Dec 21 for more information.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;A Run to Rememberâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;


Frustrated with the lack of support groups for brain injury patients, Vancouverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s David McGuire has taken matters into his own hands. A brain injury patient himself, McGuire has spent the past eight months running across Canada on his â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Run to Rememberâ&#x20AC;? campaign to raise awareness of the disability and to educate youth on how to prevent it. Every three minutes someone in North America has a brain injury, and 90 per cent of traumatic brain injuries can be prevented. McGuire wants to get the message of head safety out to as many people as possible. Partnering with Brain Trust Canada, he had already ran more than 7,000 kilometers when he stopped in Langley on Dec. 2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was a little bit disgruntled before I began the run. One of the reasons I started this was out of frustration for the social service system. That was really frustrating and I just wanted to scream and yell that there is something wrong with this place,â&#x20AC;? McGuire said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But my faith in humanity has definitely come back with special moments and people we have met along the way.â&#x20AC;? McGuireâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passion for raising awareness of brain injuries stems from an incident he had in 2005. He was 32 years old and began noticing that he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel â&#x20AC;&#x153;normalâ&#x20AC;? anymore. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My behaviour was changing. I would cry at Judge Judy or start freaking out for no reason. Something was wrong,â&#x20AC;? he said. He passed out at work and was on sick leave when the major event occurred. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was sitting at home watching TV and my TV went on the

fritz,â&#x20AC;? he recalled.â&#x20AC;&#x153;This caused me to freak out so I phoned my girlfriend at the time (now his wife) and said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t watch TV, I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t go to work, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? She suggested McGuire have a bath instead.This is the last thing he remembers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I either lost consciousness and fell in the bath which caused the brain bleeding or my brain was bleeding and it caused me to lose consciousness and slip,â&#x20AC;? he said. McGuire spent nine days in a coma and woke up with no memory of what happened or any memory of who his family was. Part of his skull was removed to reduce swelling and it was discovered that his brain had been bleeding for a long period of time. This was causing his behavioral changes. He wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t expected to come out of the coma, let alone walk or talk again. He defied them all. Still, McGuire went through a period of depression and frustration after being discharged from the hospital. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was feeling really sorry for myself at how hard life is for me,â&#x20AC;? he said. Part of the struggle was making people understand how he was disabled. Simple tasks like ordering a coffee at Starbucks were a challenge because of his short term memory loss. McGuire says brain injuries are often referred to as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;hidden diseaseâ&#x20AC;? because patients look healthy on the outside but struggle on the inside. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The weird thing about having short term memory loss is that I look at pictures and I still think Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m 32, even though I am almost 40. When I look in the mirror I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recognize that person because I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t remember aging.â&#x20AC;?

Miranda GATHERCOLE/Langley Times

David McGuire, a recovered brain injury patient, has spent the last eight months running across Canada to raise awareness and education for brain injuries. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until McGuire discovered his local brain injury centre had closed down due to lack of funding that his spirits began to change. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I began to wonder where all of the people who are more severely disabled than I am go. I looked up the stats and most of them end up either homeless, in prison or in a care facility,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a huge disconnect between getting out of the hospital and back into a productive society.â&#x20AC;? McGuire felt inspired to try and make a difference and by 2009 he was making contact with BrainTrust Canada to organize a nation wide awareness run. Melissa Wild of BrainTrust Canada accompanied McGuire on the journey. For her, the most memorable cities they visited were the places with the most memorable people. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The messages we have brought out to some of the kids have really made a difference,â&#x20AC;?

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not just about getting the kids to put on their helmets, its about getting the parents to as well.â&#x20AC;? McGuire recalls one of the most powerful moments on the trip was when a young girl in the audience at an elementary school asked him a very innocent, yet difficult question. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we opened up for questions I had this one girl put her hand up and ask,â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;do you like the old you better than the new you?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;That stuck with me. I started thinking about it a lot. I do more now and I have a greater respect for life. I have much more empathy than I had before. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This journey has been a bucket list and a way for me to say I have done something now.â&#x20AC;? McGuire finally finishes his run in Victoria on Dec. 9.

Long-time store owner passes away Jack Maitland, former owner of Berry General Store, passes away at age 95 FRANK BUCHOLTZ Times Reporter

Jack Maitland, who ran the W.H. Berry General Store for more than 30 years, died on Nov. 21 at Langley Memorial Hospital. He was 95. The Berry General Store was a longtime Langley institution, at the corner of 232 Street and Fraser Highway. The store is still in operation under another name, but in the years that Maitland was involved, it was a full-fledged general store, offering groceries, hardware, farm supplies and a host of other items for sale. In addition, it was a wellknown meeting place where residents could catch up on what was going on in the largely rural community. He grew up in the Collingwood area of east Vancouver, and excelled at

U.S. foundations at root of opposition to pipeline


f the propaganda flowing over “tar sands” crude shipments across B.C. were oil, the province would be out of deficit by now. U.S.-funded professional environmentalists and their aboriginal partners lined up with the NDP last week to peddle a range of halftruths and falsehoods about proposals to pipe diluted bitumen from Alberta to a new port at Kitimat, where tankers would deliver it to Asian markets. They staged a slick news conference in Vancouver where they claimed to have a seamless wall of aboriginal communities the length of B.C. opposing the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline. A 10-year-old girl in a cedar bark hat warned of devastation to the coastal ecology, providing the kind of emotional visual that appeals to urban television audiences who know and care little about science or resource industries. This event was coordinated with the publication of a report

warning of huge risks from piping “tar sands” crude. The report was produced by the Natural Resource Defence Council, the Living Oceans Society and the Pembina Institute. These three obscure organizations are among those identified by independent researcher Vivian Krause on her website, www.fairquestions. campaigns/. These and other environmental groups have received millions from U.S.based foundations in recent years. Here’s one of many examples of the money trail that Krause has followed. U.S. tax returns show the Pembina Institute and a B.C. environmental group were paid $200,000 by the Rockefeller Brothers Fund Inc. in 2006-07 “to prevent the development of a pipeline and tanker port” on the B.C. coast. The same Rockefeller fund has investments in competing pipelines going south. Documenting this huge money spill, Krause concludes that

U.S. interests are working to stop Canada from exporting oil to Asia so the U.S. will be the only market available. They dress it up as environmentalism; we fall for it. Not surprisingly, the latest “tar sands” scare report was seized on by the B.C. NDP. “The pipeline goes over mountains, across farmland, over the Fraser and Skeena Rivers and straight through the Great Bear Rainforest to the Pacific, where it will be picked up by super-

Those are the folks who blessed us with the faux-aboriginal name “Great Bear Rainforest.” A similar campaign is underway against expansion of the existing Kinder Morgan pipeline from Edmonton to Burnaby, which brings Alberta oilsands crude to ships heading

out under the Lions Gate Bridge and winding through the Gulf and San Juan Islands to Asia. Tankers have been loading “tar sands” oil in Burnaby for about six years now, but the enviro-propagandists didn’t notice until a couple of years ago. Up until then, Fleming and his colleagues raged about maintaining a “moratorium” on B.C. tanker traffic that never existed. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press.

This is the busiest time of the year for our local retailers and many rely on the Christmas Season to help them keep their doors open and employees working through the slower months. We understand the lure of the stronger Canadian dollar to visit our neighbours to the south, and perhaps the ease of internet shopping however I would like to remind folks of a couple of simple facts to encourage you to consider ‘shopping local’. If you purchase gift items out of province or off the internet that malfunction, do not fit or are not wanted, it is very difficult, time consuming, and in many instances not permitted to return for an exchange or refund. I also encourage you to consider how our local charities and youth organizations rely very heavily on local businesses to provide them support throughout the year in the form of financial assistance and volunteers. Without consumers supporting our local economy, we all run the risk of these donations diminishing or disappearing altogether as well as us and/or our family members losing our jobs, etc. Before you make the decision to shop online or somewhere other than Langley, allow yourself to explore local shops, experience the outstanding customer service and know that local merchants stand behind their products. I am sure you will not be disappointed … Langley has so much to offer! During January and February the Board will be advocating on issues and challenges that have a negative effect on business. We will prepare and submit new resolutions for the provincial and national Chambers of Commerce AGM’s, and we will continue efforts commenced previously. If there are any issues you feel the Chamber could advocate on behalf of your business please contact the Chamber Office. On behalf of the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and Staff, I extend our gratitude for your continued support and our sincere wishes for a Safe & Happy Holiday Season and prosperous New Year.

On behalf of the Chamber I extend our sincere congratulations to Mayors and Councilors elected in the City and Township of Langley during the 2011 Municipal Elections. The Chamber looks forward to working with the new Councils to ensure Langley remains a preferred location to live, work, play and raise a family. I also express our gratitude to all of the Candidates who put their name forward to serve our communities. Your desire to serve the community is appreciated.

Small Companies Competing inn the Big Bigg Lea Leag LLe Leagues eag eague agu gue ues ues Re-printed from BC Business usiness ovember 7, 2011 by Schenley Brown – November

Advice for small companies competing with the big guys. While 98 per cent of B.C. businesses have fewer than 50 employees, the bulk of opportunity resides with the remaining two per cent, which account for twothirds of B.C.’s GDP. So small businesses looking for opportunities have to lose the DIY vibe and jump into the tank with the big fish. Three experts offer their advice: Rab Kooner, Small Business BC’s business plan advisor; Charles Chang, CEO of Sequel Naturals Ltd.; and Christian Codrington, senior manager of operations for the B.C. Human Resources Management Association.

Get real

Kooner says a lot of small companies will try to look bigger than they are by hiring an outfit that gives them a prestigious address and a phone service, but warns that “by and large most people can see right through that.” Chang, who grew his vitamin-supplement company from one full-time employee to about 70, stresses that being open and honest from the outset will bring its own rewards.

Create the vibe

Kooner suggests that B2C companies create excitement in their marketplace by sponsoring community events and alerting local media. Chang adds that the public attention not only makes you look bigger, but actually helps you grow your company: “If you have a vibe, people will gravitate to you.”

Measure it

Would you drive a car without a gauge showing your fuel, your speed and how high your engine is revving? A dashboard is just as important to driving the success of your business. Chan advises that a business owner will know which metrics are important because “as you grow you’re kind of running around putting out which fire is hottest.” Codrington adds that charting your company’s metrics is not just the responsibility of top management: when everyone sets goals and measures performance, employee ownership of future performance increases.

A place you’ll be proud to call home

Engage your staff

“An engaged employee is selling their employer every day to everybody they know,” Chang notes. Chang’s company uses a triple bottom line – evaluating corporate performance through societal and environmental aspects in addition to the traditional monetary yardstick – because this motivates his employees. Codrington points out that when your organization represents something more than just a paycheque, employees become actively engaged in making your company successful.

It’s a contact sport

“The big danger is trying to punch higher than you can,” Kooner explains. “There are companies that are over ambitious but they don’t have a solid foundation, and those are the ones that run into trouble.” For B2B companies, part of being prepared is ensuring you have someone with inside knowledge about your industry – and the contacts to support your growth, he says. For many small companies, this means hiring or outsourcing work to a sales manager so you can appropriately negotiate with the big players. “It’s a much overlooked sales technique,” he adds.

Training sessions Derailments, a film about a pair of Italy’s most famous artists, has put Chelsea McMullan’s career firmly on track BRENDA ANDERSON Times Reporter


n appreciation for food and wine, life and leisure ... and a feature in Italian Vogue — just some of the things Chelsea McMullan has managed to acquire during her first six months at Fabrica. Since February, the young Langley filmmaker has been hard at work inside Benneton’s artistic institute near Venice, Italy — an opportunity she’d dreamed about since first reading about the centre in a Colors magazine when she was 15. Living in Trevino, the 40-minute bicycle ride through the northern Italian countryside, to and from Fabrica each day, is the best part of the 26-year-old’s day, she said during a recent trip home to Canada. So far, each day of her year-long sojourn to Italy has given the young woman food for thought. But for creative thrills, it’s tough to imagine stumbling upon a more intriguing tale than the one she found while helping to shoot a Benneton commercial. Part of the reason for McMullan’s journey home earlier this fall, was the opportunity to screen her latest short film, Derailments, at the Toronto and Vancouver International Film Festivals. Deragliamenti as it is called in Italian, McMullan’s short film about the movie Frederico Fellini never made and its connection to one of Italy’s most famed illustrators, came together through a series of fortunate coincidences, helped out by the young director’s keen instinct for a good story. Her finished product, an 11-minute meditative documentary, is based on Fellini’s Il Viaggio di Mastorna detto Fernet about a man’s journey into the hereafter. Originally written as a feature film, the project was abandoned by the famed Italian director immediately before filming began — possibly because it brought him face to face with his own mortality in a way he could not endure. But at 72, Fellini decided to revisit the film which he said had insinuated itself into everything else that he did as an artist. Thus began his collaboration with his longtime friend Milo Manara, who took Fellini’s vision and began to draw it as a comic book. Working on the Benneton ad in Verona, McMullan overheard people talking about the artist. “I was intrigued, so I Googled him and I came upon this story,” she said. Through her research, she discovered that Manara and Fellini had been friends and collaborators, who sat and sketched out ideas on napkins over pasta and red wine. A huge Fellini fan since childhood, McMullan was excited to find a connection between the artist and the director, and began to dig deeper. Fellini died in 1993, but Manara — best known for drawing soft-core images of scantily clad women — now 66, lived nearby, and so she pitched her idea to Ries Straver, the head of the cinema department at Fabrica. Normally, arranging such a sit down would be easier said than done. “Manara is pretty much one of the most important illustrators in the world. In Italy, he’s a god,” said McMullan.

Above: an image from Chelsea McMullan’s film Derailments, which tells the story of an unmade film by Frederico Fellini and the director’s friendship and collaboration with Milo Manara (below), one of Italy’s most famous illustrators. The piece, which recently screened at both the Vancouver and Toronto film festivals, earned the young Langley filmmaker a piece in Italian Vogue. Thanks to her association with Fabrica the young director was able to set up a brief, 20-minute interview with Manara. But the strict time limit meant she’d have to adjust her approach. “Usually, I conceptualize the whole film first and then start shooting. This time, I asked the questions first,” she explained. The interview was conducted entirely in Italian with the help of a translator, and though the artist gave thorough answers to each of her questions, when McMullan left, she really had no idea whether she had any of the material she needed for a film. “I had a good feeling — based on his facial expressions and gestures,” she said. Returning to Google — this time to translate the conversation — McMullan realized that her subject had given her exactly what he knew she needed. She formally pitched the project and asked for the money to make it happen. “I wanted to do it on film, which is more expensive (than digital),” she explained. The director’s idea was to have the film look “as though the footage had been lost for 50 years and found in a janitor’s closet or in an insane asylum. “I wanted it to be gritty, not to be precious with it. That can only be captured on film,” she said. Still photos of Manara, his drawings and moving footage are combined in an attempt to draw a visual parallel between the illustrations and what Fellini was trying to do, while adding the director’s own

voice to the film, McMullan explained of her vision. She flew to Germany and shot scenes in front of a Cologne cathedral which features heavily in Fellini’s story, and in Berlin, where she was able to use sets still up from the earlier filming of Quentin Tarantino’s Inglourious Basterds. Both the approach and the subject matter were so unusual, Derailments became the subject of a story in Vogue Italia, after the editor of the magazine — a huge fan of Manara — got word of what McMullan was doing. The short article was a huge step

forward for the director. “Vogue has that caché,” said McMullan. “It legitimized me in a lot of people’s eyes. “You can talk about film festivals all you want, but Vogue.” Although she has another few months to go in her year at Fabrica, McMullan is already noticing a boost from the association. “Since Fabrica, things have picked up exponentially,” she said. At TIFF, she was selected by Telefilm as one of five filmmakers to watch, while xcreeners of Derailments have been requested by film fest organizers in Hong Kong and France (Clermont-Ferrand).

Brass quintet returns

Annual concert combines horns and pipe organ The Vancouver Symphony Brass Quintet returns to Langley on Monday, Dec. 12. The five brass players are joined by organist Terry Fullerton, organist of St. John’s Vancouver. This annual Christmas Concert takes place for the fourth time this year, and is organized by volunteers, so that Langley residents may enjoy great Christmas music without having to travel to Vancouver. In previous years the musicians have provided a great selection of Christmas music, from the Nutcracker to the Messiah, including several Canadian compositions.

There is a story behind almost every composition which is explained by the musicians during their performance. The VSO Brass Quintet is joined by organist Terry Fullerton, who will play the wellknown Casavant organ in the Canadian Reformed Church. The glorious sound of brass melts perfectly together with the exceptional sound of the organ pipes. The organ console is positioned so that the audience can see the organist play the keyboards and change the sounds with the stops. The brass players have commented in the past about the breathtaking singing of Christmas carols in Langley. The building bursts when the voices of the audience join the brass instruments and organ, in the singing of well-known Christmas carols.

The VSO Brass Quintet promotes musical exposure, especially to children. During the concert they engage with the children in the audience. If the music allows, they will ask some children to volunteer to assist in the performance. As in previous years, they would like to fill the building. Tickets are available at the door for $15/adults, $10/ seniors/students. Children 12 and under admitted free. Tickets can be reserved by phone 604-626 0439 or 604-530-7612. The doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the concert starts at 7:30 p.m. During the intermission refreshments are available by donation and the musicians are available for questions. Canadian Reformed Church is located at 21804 52 Ave.

Arts council takes an evening to look back and forth They sipped local wine, nibbled hors d’oeuvres and enjoyed a live jazz performance from the Dennis Enns Trio as they gathered to discuss the state of the arts in Langley. Members of the Langley Arts Council (LAC) held their Annual General Meeting last month at Porters Bistro Coffee & Tea House to hear general manager Don Shilton present his report on the past year’s activities and to project a greater impact in the arts community in the coming year. LAC is now cooperating with both the Surrey and Delta Arts Councils in an effort to work smarter in raising the profile of the arts in local and provincial government. Shilton projects that the committee will recover lost revenue from gaming funds by accessing new funding opportunities through grants and creative fund raising. During the past year LAC has hosted more than a dozen art exhibits in community venues through Art In Found Spaces, located in gallery space at the City of Langley and Township of Langley civic facilities. These same spaces also hosted an art

exhibit from the Fraser Valley Biennale a collaboration with The Reach Regional Gallery and Museum in Abbottsford. The successful Langley Youth Spirit Festival, Earth, Wind, Fire & Water held in February, in collaboration with Kwantlen First Nations recruited dozens of performers and presenters who interacted with more than 1,000 Langley students in a day-long festival. That evening, community leaders in arts and culture, every level of government, Kwantlen First Nation’s elders and many other First Nations’ elders were invited to a feast and powwow demonstration at the Fort Langley national historic site. This year saw the addition of several new member groups to the LAC, including the B.C. Country Music Association. Langley Arts Council collaborated with the BCMA in a pilot music literacy program to elementary school children called “Music-Rules-In-Schools.” Because of the success of the program LAC will now be partnering with them to expand the program in other schools.

Fort Gallery seasonal exhibit opens Friday Do you love art? Do you wish you could own an original work by a contemporary artist?

Times Reporter

Hay, have you herd? Langley Arts Council has mounted a new sponsorship campaign. They’re kicking off a grassroots fundraising effort, titled Horsing Around, to support the local arts, while offering a nod to the community’s rich agricultural history, by offering fibreglass horse sculptures for purchase or patronage. Horse sculptures are the perfect way to bring the arts and agricultural communities together, said Carla Robin, project expediter with the Langley Arts Council. The project was chosen from several contenders by the 2010 Summer Games committee, after LAC was named one of the beneficiaries of the games’ legacy fund to promote arts and culture. The more horses that are purchased for placement around the community, the more future arts and culture related projects will benefit, said Robin. And she has a rather lofty goal in mind. “I’d love to see 50 horses in public places and facilities.” Like the orcas and bears that have proliferated Lower Mainland communities in years past, the life-sized sculptures will arrive as plain white figures. The call to decorate the sculptures will go out to artists from across the Lower Mainland. Once design proposals start coming in, it will be up to a committee, comprised of Langley Arts Council Members, members of the equestrian community and local celebrities to choose which ones will make the cut. Before that can happen, though, individuals and businesses will need to begin purchasing the statues, said

Robin. For a $5,000 contribution, a person or group can become the patron of a horse. But for a few bucks more, you get to brand it and keep it. “Another $5,000 and you get that horse at the end of the day,” said Robin. “Otherwise it goes to auction.” The $5,000 or $10,000 fee pays for the sculpture, painting, anti-grafitti lacquering and installation, with the remainder going into an LAC fund that will support future arts-related projects. If Robin can meet her goal of selling 50 horses at $5,000 apiece,“that’s $250,000 for the fund that goes back into the community,” she said. The arts council is also asking people who can’t afford to purchase a horse to consider becoming a herd patron for a donation of $100 or more. Forms include an Arab a standing thoroughbred or a grazing horse. Colts — also life sized — are available for $3,200, and Robin is hopeful people will purchase these on behalf of Langley schools, where they will be displayed until they go to auction, about 15 months from now. The horses are being moulded in the U.S. because the council couldn’t find a Canadian source, said Robin. “As long as people keep buying them, we’ll keep (ordering) them,” she said. “I’d like to buy a good herd up front, to save on shipping costs.” Once the sculptures have been placed around the community, a guide will be drawn up for visitors. Already, the Horse Capital of B.C. has stepped up, with both the Township and the City of Langley purchasing statues. The City’s — with a theme of past and present — will stand in Linwood Park.

Kodiaks add to trophy case Credo Christian senior boys crowned provincial Single A volleyball champions

Poppy eighth at B.C.’s GARY AHUJA Times Sports

GARY AHUJA Times Sports

For the second straight year — and the fourth time in the past 11 — the Credo Christian Kodiaks are on top of the volleyball world. The Kodiaks captured the Single A B.C. provincial high school senior boys’ volleyball championship on Saturday at the UBC Okanagan campus in Kelowna, defeating Bulkley Valley Christian 3-1 (25-20,22-25,2516,25-11). “It is rewarding,” said Credo coach Stan de Haan. “It is an accomplishment for all the work we have put in.” The Kodiaks went 2-1 during pool play, defeating Bulkley Valley Christian and Cedars Christian before losing to Kelowna Stan de Haan credo coach Christian. In the quarterfinals, the Kodiaks beat Sparwood in a five-set thriller before sweeping Cedars Christian 3-0 in the semifinals. That set up the championship showdown with Bulkley Valley, who had upset Kelowna Christian in the other semifinal. De Haan said his team’s loss in round robin to Kelowna Christian left the players “pretty unhappy.” “It was a wake-up call,” he said. “We knew we could play better and we had to do better if we wanted to keep going.” “We made it through some tough challenges, but pulled it off in the end,” said Ben Togeretz, the team’s off-side hitter who won the most valuable player award. Speaking about the loss to Kelowna Christian, Togeretz said it helped focus the team for the rest of the tournament. “We knew we could do better than we did, we just had to keep fighting,” he said. A big part of the team’s success was the leadership of Togeretz, the team captain who

Credo won this match in straight sets and went on to win the bronze medal. still has one more year of high school. “He was just very consistent throughout every game,” de Haan said. “And he is an excellent leader.” Togeretz was like a de facto coach this past season, usually doing the talking during timeouts as well as being vocal on the court. For his part, Togeretz said he was surprised

to win the award. “I thought a couple of other guys on our team could have won,” he said. “Our whole team played well; I could not have done it without them.” Nathan Van Delden was named a first-team all-star while Nick Heeterbrij and Josh Van Delft were both honourable mentions.

While the goal is to win, there was little disappointment in D.W. Poppy’s eightplace finish over the weekend. Competing at the B.C. AAA senior girls’ provincial volleyball championships over the weekend in Parksville, the Redhawks entered the tournament seeded 12th. “Our goal was to make top eight and I think we just ran out of gas (on the last day),” said Poppy coach Greg Tener. “All in all, we played ahead of our rank.” The Redhawks went 2-1 in their pool to finish second and then won their crossover playoff match against the Nanaimo Islanders to make it to the championship side of the draw. In the quarter-finals, Poppy fell to the Seaquam Seahawks, the eventual provincial champions. The Redhawks dropped both of their matches on Saturday to place eighth. Marla McFee earned a second-team all-star award. Also at the tournament were the Brookswood Bobcats. The ’Cats finished 16th at the championships.

Lightning bronzed at provincial championships GARY AHUJA Times Sports

While happy to have medaled, the Langley Christian Lightning were hoping for a crack at the gold medal. But a semifinal loss derailed those hopes, sending the senior boys’ volleyball team to the third-place match at the B.C. AA volleyball championships

over the weekend at Kelowna’s UBC Okanagan campus. The Lightning won the bronze with a straight sets 3-0 victory over Duchess Park. Langley Christian’s league rival, the MEI Eagles, won the gold medal. The Eagles had beaten the Lightning during pool play and MEI won three of the four matches this season against

Langley Christian. “We were hoping for one more crack against them,” admitted Lightning coach Jesse Zuidhof. “Unfortunately, we didn’t get the chance.” And the coach felt it was the team’s own undoing which cost them the opportunity to go for the gold medal. “We played not bad; we

just couldn’t finish when it counted in the semifinals,” he said. Against College Heights, Langley Christian was up 2-1 before their opponent stormed back to win the last two sets, relegating Langley Christian to the third-place match MEI was ranked No. 1 going into the tournament while the Lightning were seeded second.

Tyler Heppell — whom Zuidhof called “awesome” — and Mitchell Jarvie were selected first-team all-stars for their play in Kelowna. Joel Kleingeltink was a second-team all-star and Mark Antoniuk won the most outstanding libero award. Antoniuk won the top libero award for the second straight year.

Two Trinity Western Spartans crosscountry runners were recognized as the top athletes in their respective categories. Fiona Benson and Blair Johnston were named the B.C. crosscountry athletes of the year in the junior women’s and men’s categories, respectively. They received the awards on Saturday at the 2011 B.C. Athletics annual awards banquet at the Sheraton Vancouver Airport Hotel. Both athletes recently completed their first cross country seasons at the CIS level and both had outstanding campaigns, capped by impressive results at the Canadian Cross Country Championships. Benson finished seventh at the Canadian national junior cross country championships Nov. 26 at Vancouver’s Jericho Park. Her time of 18:59 in the five kilometre event was only 25 seconds behind the leader and was the top time among junioraged B.C. runners. Two weeks earlier, Benson was the Spartans top women’s finisher at the CIS national championships in Quebec City as she finished 48th overall with a time of 19:42 over a five kilometre distance. She was named to the Canada West second all-star team after finishing 14th amongst conference runners. Benson joined the Spartans this fall after a year at Grande Prairie Regional College where she won the CCAA (Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association) cross country championships in 2010.

Johnston, who arrived at Trinity Western straight out of high school at White Rock Christian Academy, capped his 2011 season with an eighth place finish in the eight kilometre Canadian cross-country championships race. Johnston finished in a time of 26:55 and, like Benson, was the top junior runner in the province. This followed on the heels of a 41st place finish at the CIS national championships in which he completed the 10 kilometre race in 33:57. His time had him placed 10th among Canada West runners, and he was also named to the Canada West second all-star team. ••••• Members of the Abbotsford Heat hockey club and the team’s mascot, Hawkey the Hawk, will be at the Willowbrook Shopping Centre on Tuesday (Dec. 6).

Canada calls for Comeault

A local junior lacrosse scoring star has been chosen to wear Canada’s colours. Reegan Comeault, who led the Langley Jr. Thunder, survived the final round of cuts and was named to the Canadian under 19 men’s field lacrosse team. The squad will play at

the 2012 FIL (Federation of International) lacrosse world championships in Turku, Finland, in July. Fifty players took part in the most recent selection camp with 24 making the roster. The final selection camp was held Nov. 25-27 in Oshawa, Ont. Comeault has played

the past two seasons with the Jr. Thunder in the B.C. Junior Lacrosse League, scoring 70 goals and 162 points in only 41 games. Comeault was the first overall pick in the 2009 midget draft, selected from the Ridge Meadows minor lacrosse association.

He was the league’s most valuable player last season, helping Langley reach the playoffs for the first time since 2005. He joins the Ohio State Buckeyes in the fall on a field lacrosse scholarship and still has two years of junior eligibility remaining with Langley.

The Trinity Western Spartans head into the holiday break at 10-0 and atop the Canadian rankings. The men’s volleyball team needed five sets on Friday night and then only three on Saturday in sweeping a pair of matches against the host Thompson Rivers WolfPack in Kamloops. Spartans coach Ben Josephson believes his team — the defending national champions — are right where they need to be as they head into the break. “The results are taking care of themselves,” he said. “I am really happy with the amount of work we have been able to put in this semester. We have trained on the weights extra hard and train a little bit more than usual. We have played a lot and have been able to utilize our entire bench. We are healthy, will be rested and now take four weeks off before the second half of the year.” Josephson commented on the coming break after a welltravelled first semester. “We have played a lot of volleyball. Two of our guys were with Canada’s FISU team and had only one week off before we

started. We started early because of that Qatar trip. We had some kids playing juniors (Team Jr. Canada) and had beach kids. These guys are really tired of volleyball. They need a good long break to have their wounds heal and work on the weights. Once the second semester starts it will be a sprint to hopefully another berth in the CIS Nationals.” Rudy Verhoeff led the Spartans on Saturday with 14 kills, seven digs and three blocks. Steven Marshall had nine kills, plus three service aces, five digs and a block assist, and Ben Ball had 28 set assists. In Friday’s five-setter, Verhoeff had 19 kills on 38 chances, with seven digs and three block assists. Marshall had 11 kills, another service ace, five digs and three block assists and Ball had 45 set assists. Jarrod Offereins had 10 digs. ••••• After losing a tough five-set match to the Thompson Rivers WolfPack on Friday, the Trinity Western Spartans closed out their pre-holiday schedule with a 3-1 win on Saturday to wrap up a two-day visit to Kamloops. The split gives the Spartans

women’s volleyball team a 7-3 record as they break until January. “We played solid volleyball tonight and as a whole we served better and hit our targets better. We made the right people play the ball and we attacked at a better efficiency,” commented TWU head coach Ryan Hofer.“It is great to end the first semester with a win and earn a split on the weekend.” Chelsea Hudson ran the Spartan attack and finished with 37 set assists to go with 11 digs and two blocks. Leading hitters for TWU were leftside Royal Richardson with 18 kills, six digs and five blocks, middle Alicia Perrin with 16 kills, at 56 percent, and eight blocks and outside Amy Leschied with 10 kills and 13 digs. TWU libero Jodi Neufeld led the Spartans defence with 16 digs. In Friday’s match, Richardson had another 22 kills with eight more digs and six block assists. Leschied had 18 kills, plus a service ace, nine digs, a solo block and four block assists and Perrin had a dozen kills, two service aces, two digs and nine block assists.

Soccer clubs open to all Local soccer associations open doors to both genders GARY AHUJA Times Sports

The Langley United Youth Soccer Association and Langley FC are now fully open to the opposite genders. The two local soccer associations were granted approval to do so at a Central Fraser Valley Soccer Association board meeting last week (Nov. 28). Previously, the Langley United had boys’ teams — although they did have female players — while Langley FC was exclusively for girls. “It is long overdue,” said Brad Nicholl, chairman of the Central Fraser Valley House League. “All clubs should offer both boys and girls soccer. “The game is all the same.” There was talk of Langley United and Langley FC partnering together, but when an agreement could not be reached, the associations went in separate directions.

• The Langley Times • Tuesday, December 6, 2011

… but not the kind you can buy at the local hardware store. Dear friend, What’s on your wish list this holiday season? The latest tech toy? That new bestseller? Or maybe just time spent with those you love? At Langley Memorial Hospital, we have a wish list of our own – the tools and equipment we need to help us continue to provide the very best care for our patients. The wishes we’re making are on behalf of patients needing new hips, or those with broken bones or crooked legs. They’re also on behalf of the newest members of our community – premature babies who need a little extra help to grow and flourish. They’re on behalf of our doctors and nurses who do everything they can to provide outstanding care for their patients, but sometimes have to make do with outdated equipment.

Help make

By giving generously today, you can make these wishes come true. Our biggest wish this year is for new orthopaedic equipment – tools such as drills, saws and other power tools used to fix broken bones and replace hips. Our current equipment is breaking down, and we need six total joint sets and two orthopaedic trauma sets, at a cost of $300,000.

holiday COME wishes TRUE ...

By giving today, you are giving hope and comfort to someone in need – and isn’t that what this season is all about? From our family to yours, best wishes for a wonderful holiday season.

Other items on our wish list include: • Critical care beds ($39,000) • Infant warmer ($26,000) • Incubator ($26,000)


Each item on our list is critical to our work at Langley Memorial Hospital and has the ability to make a dramatic difference in the health of our patients and our community.

Rick McMullan Chair, Langley Memorial Hospital Foundation P.S. Every dollar makes an impact, so please give generously today!

The Langley Times • Tuesday, December 6, 2011 • 45

Your Money In Action The Hospital’s capital equipment requirements increasingly exceed provincial and municipal government funding each year. As the Hospital adds programs and services, it must depend more and more on the Foundation to provide funds as government funding alone is not sufficient to cover all these costs. The Foundation is a non-profit organization committed to and actively involved in raising funds for the Langley Memorial Hospital and the healthcare needs of the Langley communities. Your donations and gifts – big and small – have purchased needed equipment for our Langley past, and future. g y Memorial Hospital… p p , present p
