Langley Township mayor-elect Jack Froese and his wife Debbie greet supporters at the Fort Langley Golf Course on Saturday night after Froese learned of his victory at the polls. The Otter-area turkey farmer defeated incumbent mayor Rick Green and challenger Mel Kositsky. More coverage, pages 4, 5 and 16.

Turkey farmer gobbles up votes NATASHA JONES Times Reporter

Langley Township Mayor Rick Green has been defeated at the polls by newcomer Jack Froese. Green, who ousted incumbent mayor Kurt Alberts in 2008, finished third, while incumbent councillor Mel Kositsky came in second. The close of polling drew only 50 people to the Township council chambers to watch the results from the 15 polls, but after the

results of the advance and special polls were announced, the race for mayor had already been won. Froese led in these, and in the first two polls reporting. Kositsky was in second place, and Green in third all the way. “I’m feeling great, we ran a good campaign and we had a great team,” said Froese, surrounded by an estimated 200 supporters at the Fort Langley Golf Course. “At the beginning of the campaign I said there are two things we wanted to do: have fun and win, and we did it. I’m really proud of my team and I’m proud of Langley, and

we’re going to move this Township forward.” As he conceded defeat to his Vote Langley Now campaign team and fellow candidates, gathered inside Milner Chapel, Green said that despite having gone through, “probably the worst three years of my life,” he remained “a very happy and content individual. “I did it with a lot of pride. I stood up for this community and gave back,” he said. “We won some big battles, we stepped on some big toes. But it turns out, they had a lot more power than we thought they had.

“I’m a happy guy, but I’m not happy for the Township,” Green said, adding the comment was “not sour grapes.” In the context of his daughter’s illness and having been told by doctors at one point that she would likely die, Green called his defeat “a piece of cake.” Councillor Grant Ward, the incumbent councillor who locked horns with Green during the entire term, commented that Green “dug his own grave.”

IGA construction underway MIRANDA GATHERCOLE Times Reporter

Members of the Lee family and Marco Paolella of Marcon Development made the first indentations in the soil at the IGA property in Fort Langley on Friday, to commemorate the beginning of the store’s rebuilding project. The IGA grocery store, which had been owned and operated by the Lee family on the corner of Mavis Avenue and Glover Road since 1975, burned to the ground in early January. The long-awaited excavation for a new building begins this week. “It’s been a long time waiting. We’re excited to be moving this forward and starting the construction,” said Russ Wallbank of Marcon Development. Robert Lee says he was surprised by the number of community supporters and members of the Township government that gathered on the vacant lot to support the Lee family for the “groundbreaking” event. “We have had unbelievable community support right from the start,” he said. “We are very thankful for their help.” Lee says he gives credit to past Township mayor Kurt Alberts, a Fort Langley resident, for being “instrumental” in his support and promotion of the project. “The IGA was a big part of the Fort Langley Village,” Alberts said. “It’s a special place and there’s been a hole in the community since it burned down.”

Miranda GATHERCOLE/Langley Times

Charlie Lee, Robert Lee, Peter Lee and Marco Paolella of Marcon Development ceremonially break the ground to mark the beginning of construction on the new IGA in Fort Langley on Friday. Plans for the new IGA include additional office space and a new plaza to be built

on the site. Construction is expected to be completed by summer or fall of 2012.

Coat hanger used to target helper’s vehicle A liquor store employee didn’t give a second thought to a man who came into her store, asking to borrow a coat hanger to be used to retrieve the keys that were locked in his car. Now police are hunting for the man who they believed used the coat hanger to break into that employee’s own car. The incident occurred at about 4:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 14 at the Aldergrove liquor

store in the 26400 block of 32 Avenue. Cpl. Holly Marks said that the employee found “significant” damage to the locks of her truck where someone had attempted to break in. Video surveillance showed that the damage

was inflicted by the man who requested the coat hanger. If you recognize the suspect, call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.

Pedestrians hit due to icy windshield A woman who failed to properly clear the ice from the windshield of her car has been charged after three women were struck in the parking lot of Montana’s Cookhouse late on Friday night, Nov. 18. The most seriously injured is a Langley woman who was dragged by the vehicle. Cpl. Holly Marks said that a woman driver left the Boston Pizza parking lot at 19700 Langley Bypass just before midnight, “and had not properly defrosted or scraped the ice from her windshield.” Police allege that she drove about four blocks to Montana’s where her Kia Sportage struck the three women. A 35-year-old woman from Surrey received “fairly minor injuries” and did not require hospital treatment, while a 31-year-old from Surrey was hit head on and pushed several feet. She was taken by ambulance to hospital. The 32-year-old Langley woman was the most seriously injured when she was hit and dragged a short distance, Marks said. The driver of the Kia, a 42-year-old Langley woman, was issued a ticket for driving without due care and attention. “Fortunately, in this instance, no one suffered life threatening injuries,” Marks remarked. “However, the outcome could have been far worse. With the onset of winter weather, it is the responsibility of drivers to ensure their windows are clear prior to proceeding,” she added. Drivers who neglect to keep their windshields free of ice and snow, and clear condensation from the inside, could be fined $109. Penalties could be even more severe if a collision occurs, Marks said. She said pedestrians must also bear some responsibility to obey laws governing their movement on roads or wherever there is vehicular traffic.

The 7-Eleven store in Brookswood was robbed on Tuesday, Nov. 15 by two men, one of whom brandished a canister of what police believe was pepper spray. Both men, who are Caucasian, wore black clothing and face masks when they entered the store at 2 a.m., said Cpl. Holly

Marks, who speaks for Langley RCMP. Marks said that the robbers jumped over the counter and took cigarettes, lottery tickets and two cash registers containing a small amount of money. Both suspects then fled, running east along 40 Avenue. Anyone with information is asked to call

CAPSULE COMMENTS with Pinder Mann

With the baby-boomers coming into the senior part of their lives, Type II diabetes in on the rise. It’s good to become familiar with some of the symptoms of this disease: blurred vision, erectile dysfunction, fatigue, slow healing of infections and increased appetite, thirst and urination. See your doctor if you are concerned. In the U.S., the manufacturer of the main acetaminophen brand, Tylenol, has reduced the maximum daily dose from 4000 mg to 3000mg. That new maximum represents two extra-strength tablets three times daily. In Canada, the maximum daily dose is still 4000 mg. It is important to read the labels on all over-the-counter medications because some cold preparations contain acetaminophen as well.

Here’s another good motivator to help smokers quit. People who are having joint surgery like a hip or knee replacement will have fewer complications if they don’t smoke. Smokers had a greater chance of surgical site infections and other complications and slower healing than non-smokers. The bright colours used by artist like Renoir, Rubens and Dufy were made with paints containing heavy metals like mercury, cadmium, arsenic, cobalt and lead. These artists all suffered from rheumatoid arthritis and these heavy metals may have been partly responsible. Today’s paints don’t contain these metals. Going on a winter holiday this year? Remember to bring enough of your prescribed medication with you. It often isn’t easy to find the right medications in foreign countries.

New school trustees vow to work as independents NATASHA JONES Times Reporter

Saying that she is proud to have been endorsed by CUPE locals and the Langley Teachers Association who represent workers in the Langley School District, Megan Dykeman vows to be an independent school trustee whose only affiliation will be to the taxpayers and voters of Langley. Dykeman said trustees “were elected on our individual merit,” took the seat vacated by Steve Burton, who did not seek re-election in the Township. In the City, Candy Ashdown defeated two-term trustee Stacey Cody. Like Dykeman, Ashdown vows to be an independent trustee on a board that has been divided on a number of issues, including school closures, and overspending which left the district $13.5 million in debt. Ashdown’s campaigning was curtailed as she spent many hours at the hospital bedside of her father, Lyle Pona, who had a kidney transplant. Ashdown’s mother, Diane Pona, is a former school trustee. Ashdown said that the biggest strength she will bring to the board is her willingness to work with everyone and to listen with respect. “I believe it’s important to encourage and value dialogue and input from students, parents, teachers

and staff in the community,” Ashdown said. She said that she will “absolutely” serve as an independent trustee. Both newcomers have children in Langley’s public schools. When she decided to run in the election, Dykeman took a leave of absence as president of the District Parents Advisory Committee. She said on Monday that following her election as trustee, she has stepped down from the position. Cody said she was disappointed but not shocked at her defeat. “There are still some people in Langley City who are upset with the Uplands decision,” Cody said, referring to a proposal to examine the possibility of returning Uplands Elementary to a full Kindergarten to Grade 7 format. Like other elementary schools in the south-central region of the Langley School District, Uplands became a K to Grade 5 school.The change followed the contentious reconfiguration of H.D. Stafford Secondary to a Grade 6 to 8 Middle School, and Langley Secondary’s to a Grade 9-12 school. Cody said that she will miss her job as a trustee, but likes the fact that her new job as a student support co-ordinator keeps involved with children. Cody said she was proud of her six years on the board. “I never once made a decision that was not based on children’s best interests.”

Kositsky has no regrets over gamble

ADVERTORIAL

from PAGE 1

Throughout the term under Green, Kositsky, who served 18 consecutive years on council, distanced himself from personal attacks on Green, and as the final result came in, he accepted defeat with grace. “I wanted to be mayor, and came back from the FCM (Federation of Canadian Municipalities) convention in June and decided that it was time to run for mayor. I was working at it since then.” Kositsky said he has become a local government specialist, and will use that talent wisely for the next chapter in his life.

“There are many opportunities,” he said, adding he had no regrets about taking a gamble. “You have to put your name on the ballot to win to be mayor.You can’t sit back and wait.” Kositsky had praise for his campaign team, many of whom had never met before it started. Kositsky wished the winner well, calling Froese “a good community volunteer.” Froese has a learning curve to face in local government and Kositsky said he is confident that he will do well. The two new councillors, Michelle Sparrow and David Davis, are excited about the new

Both told The Times on Sunday, at the annual Douglas Day event, that their winning campaigns were the resuilt of a lot of effort, and they look forward to being part of council. At his own celebration in Langley City, Mayor Peter Fassbender acknowledged the close link between the Langleys, noting “the City is part of a bigger community with the Township.” “It’s about working together as a team, it’s not a one-man show.”

Rudy Storteboom unseated by former councillor Times Reporter

It was nothing if not a vote of confidence for Langley City council at the polls on Saturday night. Mayor Peter Fassbender handily won a third term in office, while five of six sitting council members were given a mandate by voters to carry on. One-term council member Rudy Storteboom was the only incumbent to be unseated, with former City councillor Ted Schaffer earning the third highest number of votes, behind Rosemary Wallace and Teri James. (Full results on page 16). Schaffer previously served for 18 years on City council before stepping away from politics in 2008. As the clock passed 8 p.m. — the time the polls closed — Fassbender stepped away from the gathering in the Coast Hotel, to find a quiet place to learn the results from the municipality’s single voting station at Nicomekl Elementary. As he returned and read the names of each successful candidate in the room, cheers went up for Wallace,

James and Gayle Martin, as well as for Rob McFarlane and Candy Ashdown, who were both successful in their bids for the two City seats on the Langley school board. “The results are heartening,” Fassbender told the gathering. However, the celebratory atmosphere inside the room was tempered by Storteboom’s unseating. “We’re going to miss Rudy, but I know he’s going to be around in the community,” Fassbender said. “Rudy, you’re a good man, with a good heart.” As they thanked their supporters, each of the councillors took a moment to acknowledge Storteboom’s service to the community and wish him well. “Thank you, Rudy, for being beside me and supporting me,” said a tearful Wallace. “I’m going to miss you.” “Rudy, sometimes democracy sucks,” said McFarlane. Storteboom, in return, offered his thanks to the community and the people who supported his campaign. continued, PAGE 8

Congratulations, now get to work Editor: Congratulations, Township. As a long-time resident of the Township of Langley and an active participant in numerous community committees, I am both delighted and saddened by Saturday’s election. First, congratulations to all who ran a good race, and to our new mayorelect Jack Froese. He is a fine man and I have no doubt that he will take on his new position with calm dedication and integrity. However, I feel it is imperative to point out that Mel Kositsky has served this community for as long as I can remember, and his wisdom and knowledge will be sorely missed. I have served with him on one committee for the past four years and his advice and guidance have been invaluable. It is my sincere hope that he will continue to bring his knowledge to various volunteer committees and remain an ongoing source of community support. Pam Erikson, Langley

FORGET THE TRAFFIC CALMING PROMISE

Editor: First of all, I’d like to publicly congratulate all the councilors and the new mayor of Langley Township. Well done, and I look forward to common sense being returned to the chambers. Now, regarding the one question I noticed you all unanimously promised during your election campaigns: Traffic calming in school zones. Can I ask you to please reconsider and exercise your first dose of common sense on what was obviously a populist “mommy” promise? First of all, do some math. Schools are in session a maximum of 10 months. Deduct professional days, vacations, and statutory holidays, and you have about 200 days when school

is in session. Each school zone limited to 30 km/h is in effect nine hours a day, so approximately 1,800 hours. The real world is in session 12 months of the year, 24 hours a day. That’s 8,760 hours. Therefore, for the sake of 1,800 hours out of 8,760 hours (that’s just over 20 per cent of the time), roads around schools would be completely and unnecessarily hindered. During the remaining 80 per cent of the time, there are no children are present. Current traffic laws already more than adequately address the problem during school session. So please, forget this promise. It was populist and ill-advised, and it makes absolutely no common sense at all whatsoever. John Dueckman, Langley

Stray shotgun pellets prove dangerous on trail Editor: As I was riding my bike to school along a horse trail (the Campbell Valley Connector trail between 248 and 240 Streets), something out of the ordinary happened. There was a group of ladies standing at the trailhead and they warned me about a shooting and how one of the ladies had just been hit in the hand. Since I have been an extra in a movie numerous times, and the farm beside the trail is used for Smallville movie shoots, I thought she was referring to a movie shoot. I was wondering how anyone could be hit in the hand by a movie. I found out later (my mom talked to Constable Steiger, who was the attending officer) that the shooting which I thought was harmless wasn’t. The lady had been hit by a live shotgun shell from hunters shooting at Canada geese. The trail which has served me well, all my life, was now unsafe. Now, I feel nervous about riding the trail that kept me from having to ride on the busy 0 Avenue or 16 Avenue roads. In the 13 years that I have been I alive on this

earth, I have been taught many things, but one thing that will stay in my head forever is that you can trust the police. I have a cousin who is a policeman and throughout my life, the police have always been great to me and my family. That is why I was so surprised when, after contacting the police and asking them why the hunters were shooting Canada geese beside a public trail, Constable Steiger said that there is no law protecting us when we are on the trail. She said that I could get hit by hunters shooting at geese anytime I am on the trail. She also said that it shouldn’t hurt too much if I get hit. My mouth was left hanging open when she said, “If you don’t want to get hit, don’t be on the trail.” I am very disappointed in this situation. If you can’t trust the police, who can you trust? Now I can’t say that every memory of the police is a good one. I hope something can be done about this. Giancarlo Bussani, age 13, Aldergrove

Editor: Thank you to columnist Anne Patterson for her column (The Times, Nov. 17) about the shotgun pellet shooting along the 8 Avenue and 248 Street horse trail. We (two parents and four children) have lived close to the trail for 17 years and use it almost daily. My son was commuting to school minutes after the shooting, and was very disappointed in the police response. (see above letter). I appreciate your concern, as many horses use that particular trail. Often my children are on the trail while a horse is also being ridden on the trail. What if the horse got hit and spooked? It’s a very dangerous situation. I did call the Horse Council of B.C., explaining what had occurred and was disappointed by the lack of concern. I was told the lady in charge would call me back, but she never did. Thank you for your concern and your wellwritten editorial. Lori Bussani, Aldergrove

Snoopy neighbours can make life difficult Editor: I had concerns with the past council and councillors, who did their level best not to work with Rick Green because the former mayor did not get re-elected. Council also raised taxes when those who suffered most were trying to survive the recession. But one of the worst things it did was put a bylaw into effect that lets neighbours complain

about another neighbour’s RV. The bylaw officers are like relentless watchdogs, patrolling Bartlett St. in Fort Langley about three times a week. If you’re going to pass a law, pass it for everyone; putting that power into the hands of some people who don’t have a life is ludicrous. Also, why hasn’t this council stood up to Trans-

Link? Why do we on the south side of the Fraser have to pay, through tolls, for the bulk of the Port Mann addition when it is crucial to the economy of Vancouver? Everyone in the Lower Mainland should pay and they should keep the tolls on both bridges to $1.50 per trip, maximum. John Ritchie, Fort Langley

Thanks to the RCMP Editor: Our family suffered a huge loss on Saturday, Nov. 12, when our son, Dylan James Reichelt died in a tragic car accident. In our time of shock and grief the RCMP officers who dealt with our family, both at the scene and in our home, were incredible. They were sensitive, kind, helpful and showed extreme compassion in our difficult time. We would like to personally thank Constable Tumbas, Constable Toor, Corporal Adriannase, Corporal Adams, Francene Melger (victim services), Constable Galasso, Constable Olson, Constable Johnston and Constable Cacea. We would also like to thank the officers and emergency services who were on scene that night. We are very grateful to have these amazing people serving our community. Bill, Cathy, Keri, Keira and Jesse Reichelt, Langley

Give MP feedback Editor: I urge your readers to send e-mails to Mark Warawa and Stephen Harper, requesting the Conservatives stop their bullying tactics. The omnibus crime bill is being pushed through Parliament, despite years of studies proving it is not the way to go. The Harper Conservatives are ignoring advice from the Canadian Bar Association, and even the experience in Texas. It is too costly and too mean-spirited for this citizen. Myrna Pfeifer, Fort Langley

Heartfelt thank you to the many people who helped save my son’s life

Editor: To the Langley Hospital medical staff, 911 responders and strangers, I thank you for what you may say was doing your job. You gave me back my heart. Thursday, Nov. 10 will be a day that I will never forget. My 19-year-old son, who has never even had stitches, lay on the brink of leaving me forever. After a 40-minute sei-

zure, he was placed on a ventilator. It was a mother’s worst nightmare. This letter is to thank the people who ensured my son is alive today. We read stories on the horrors of our medical system, but on that day all I saw was the goodness of people working harder than anyone I’ve ever seen to save a stranger’s life, without a

second thought. Thank you for your support, your diligence and patience — to the paramedics and firemen who responded; to the staff at McDonalds for their quick thinking; to the doctor who came behind the counter to help; to the ER staff at Langley Memorial Hospital for your quick work; to Dr. McDer-

“It was an honour and a privilege to serve. I did my duty to the community, and I encourage others to do the same.” Overall, said Fassbender, he was pleased with results. “I think we have a council we can work with,” he said. “There’s no candidate (elected) who has a single agenda,” he told the jubilant crowd, in reference to medical marijuana advocate Randy Caine, who threw his hat in the political ring after his Langley City dispensary was raided by police and closed in July. Caine placed last in the polls. Fassbender later acknowledged that he’s “been concerned about Randy Caine’s agenda for a while.” “I want to support and help (people who need medical marijuana) but not in an illegal way. We will continue to work with Health Canada to do that,” he said.

Two teachers injured by special needs students DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter

There have been two separate incidents in which Langley school teachers have been injured by violent special needs students since the school year began. In both cases, the female teachers required medical attention and one had to take some time off work to recover. The Langley Teachers’ Association (LTA) said the incidents are proof that school district cutbacks to special needs teachers are creating a dangerous situation. “It does not bode well,” LTA president Gail Chaddock-Costello said. The number of such incidents appears to be increasing, Chaddock-Costello added. Normally, the district records about two such incidents in an entire year. ChaddockCostello presented Gail Chaddock-Costello figures to the lta president last school board trustees meeting that showed the number of special needs teachers in Langley has been cut at a time when the number of special needs students is on the rise. From 2001 to the present, the LTA estimates the number of special needs students — children with physical or emotional issues who require special attention — has gone from 1,737 to 1,969. That’s an increase of 13.4 per cent. During the same period, the number of trained special education teachers fell to 110.9 full-time equivalents, or a drop of 15.6 per cent. “Teachers have no issue with integration [of special needs students in the classroom],” Chaddock-Costello said. “The issue is not the students, it’s a lack of support for those students.” Caddock-Costello said school administrators keep approving mixed classrooms with special needs and ordinary students together without consulting teachers or even visiting the classrooms.

“The issue is not the students, it is the lack of support for those students.”

Fall has turned to winter faster than the leaves on my tree have expected. There it stood, majestic and proud, full of yellow leaf splendour at least right up until the weekend and then it dropped everything it could all at once. Even now it is still hanging on to as many leaves as possible waiting patiently for the snow to fall and wind to blow knocking off all that remains. Then, there I will be, both shovel and rake in hand each vying for position. November seems to lend itself to a constant feeling of Cold and Wet, leaving us with visions of Hot Toddy’s and Full Bodied Reds by the fire. To make life easier here is a quick recipe for after the lights are hung and the decorations are ready for combat. Sailor’s Hot Toddy 1.5 oz of Spiced Rum 1 Tbsp of Honey 1 slice of lemon 1 cinnamon stick 6-7 oz of Earl Grey Tea ( or tea of choice ) Here’s the quick version....Take cup from cupboard... add Rum, Tea, Honey, squeeze lemon into mix before dropping slice into your cup and stir with cinnamon stick. Even easier.. if you have a loving partner, have them do it for you so you can complete the outdoor tasks at hand. We have some great Reds at the store just waiting for you to get into the spirit of spoiling yourselves. Drop by and check out these sought after wines like Skulls, Fetish, Wine Men of Gotham, Sin Zin and the list goes on. Each of these are fabulous full bodied reds that do not disappoint. Skulls - A South Australian blend of Grenache and Mataro with a 16.9 % bite produced by R Wines and longing for a cold night to help warm you up. I would suggest that when opening this wine for consumption you will not have far to go when you’re done. Fetish - “ The Watcher” a 2008 Barossa Valley Shiraz that made the Wine Spectator’s top 100 list for 2010 placing it at # 61 and rated by the Wine spec as a 91 point vintage. Right now the store is in good supply but I would not wait on it. $27.99 per bottle is just the right price for gift giving and the season at large. Wine Men of Gotham - is an easy to drink shiraz with lots of juicy Bing Cherry flavours waiting to burst in your mouth giving way to an easy smooth finish . The price is very good at $16.99 and we feel one of the best entry level Shiraz/Grenache blends on the market.

Doing good with a hood Hoodies for the homeless campaign aims to make the streets a warmer place this winter NATASHA JONES Times Reporter

Last winter, as Riley Paterson was cleaning out his closet, he couldn’t believe how much clothing he was throwing away. Then it struck him:There must be people who could use what he not longer wore. “I thought that some less fortunate people downtown would love to have the clothes, especially hoodies, in those bags,” he said. He contacted some friends to see if they had any old warm clothes they wanted to donate. The word started to spread and in two months Paterson had

collected about 1,000 hoodies. For someone who likes to see people happy, it was the right thing to do. “I feel that I am so blessed with the life I live, and enjoy doing little things for others that might brighten their day or make their life a little bit better in some way,” Paterson said. Giving up a few warm clothes can change the lives of the homeless, he reasoned, and perhaps even save a life during the cold winter months. “After seeing the homeless react to the clothes given last year, it reassured me that I wanted to keep doing it each year and make it bigger than the year before,” he said. Paterson and a few of friends have been posting flyers in local stores, and handing flyers in neighbourhoods. He has made a Facebook event where friends can add their friends to spread the word. He and his friends arrange to pick up the hoodies, or have them dropped off at a

convenient location. Paterson will be taking donations until Dec. 20, and on Christmas Eve he and his friends will hand out the warm winter clothes to those who live on the streets, in alley doorways, or in substandard housing in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside. The volunteers will also hand out sandwiches and coffee. Anyone with hoodies to donate can call Paterson at 778-668-7715. Paterson, 22, grew up in Asia where the standard of living opened his eyes to appreciate the small things in life. After his family moved to B.C., he attended Walnut Grove Secondary School, and on graduating spent the next eight months in Australia and Fiji. “That trip, once again opened my eyes to a different way of living and made me appreciate living here in Canada,” he said. A pile driver, Paterson plans to stay in Langley until another opportunity for travel and adventure arises.

Commercial vehicle inspection finds wide range of violations Drivers and vehicle owners are hauling cargo that is overweight, insecure, and in the case of one hazardous load, proper safety valving was absent. Some of the drivers caught in a commercial vehicle check earlier this month in Langley were speeding, talking on a cellphone while driving, and failed to properly fill out forms. Ten of 13 vehicle inspected were found to have violations under the federal and provincial transportation of dangerous goods laws and regulations. These violations included non-compliance with documentation, quantities of dangerous goods onboard, safety marks, load security, and means of containment. The most serious violation involved a high hazard dangerous goods cargo tank which was found to have open internal self-closing valving. Langley RCMP Traffic Services dedicated three days at the end of October to commercial vehicle inspections, in partnership with the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure’s Commercial Vehicle Safety and Enforcement (CVSE), Federal Dangerous Goods Inspectors (Transport Canada) and Fraser Valley Integrated Road Safety Unit. Of the 2,141 commercial vehicles checked 129 were selected for further inspection. Of these, 10 vehicles passed, 59 required minor repairs and 60 required repairs before being allowed to proceed. While the transportation ministry inspectors were more focused on commercial transport safety infractions, RCMP officers were checking both commercial and passenger vehicles. The RCMP say that they will remain vigilant in their pursuit of impaired drivers as well as their commitment to public safety, making impaired driving by drugs and/or alcohol, and driving while fatigued a high priority during inspections. Tickets and warnings were issued to 70 drivers for not wearing a seat belt, and 25 to those who were using a cell phone as they drove. Eighteen drivers were given tickets for driver’s licence infractions, 11 were caught speeding, three had no insurance, and one was served notice of a driving ban. Vehicle inspections were ordered for 67 vehicles, 13 drivers were ticketed for pre-trip and log-book violations, six for having an insecure load, and four for carrying a load that was too heavy. Cpl.

An RCMP Traffic Section officer draws a bead with a radar gun during a Thursday (Nov. 10) speeding crackdown on 200 St. near the Langley Events Centre. It was part of a province-wide ICBC-backed campaign. said that officers and inspectors were particularly concerned about the number of drivers distracted by cellphones, given that 47 per cent of traffic fatalities in the Lower Mainland are caused by cell phone use. Marks added that there has been an increase in the number of serious injuries and/or fatal collisions involving commercial vehicles. She noted, however, that despite the large number (273) of violation tickets issued “it is important to remember the overwhelming majority of vehicles checked were being operated in a professional manner.”

Y

ou could call it a brush stroke of genius. Or maybe they just have a bead on a hot new trend, but a group of local artists is turning to trunk shows and pop-up galleries as a means of reaching people who might otherwise never see their work. From pottery to paintings, glass beads to leatherwork and clothing, the six women will set up shop in a Maple Ridge home for three days this weekend and invite the public to pop in and have a look at their art, during Bohemia in the Burbs. Everything will be for sale — most of the pieces at prices that won’t give visitors sticker shock, said Elaine Brewer-White, a Walnut Grove sculptor who is co-organizing the event, along with Fort Langley painter Judy Nygren. “We’re trying to invent a new market in a depressed economy,” explained Brewer-White, who modeled the idea on a similar effort by one of her friends in Chicago. The title, Bohemia in the Burbs, reflects the fact that all the artists involved live outside Vancouver, she said. This way, neither the artists nor their audience need to drive into the city to connect. An alternative to cheap massproduced wall hangings, dishes, clothing and accessories, the show is an opportunity to buy “one of a kind, beautiful, handmade things, instead of things made in China,” said Brewer-White. “It’s so discouraging; how do you compete,” she asked, standing inside her home studio, surrounded by dozens of the whimsical ceramic figurines that have been her bread and butter for the past 30 years. On a table behind her is a growing stack of brightly coloured dishes, bowls and mugs — no two exactly the same. She is stockpiling pieces for the trunk show, which will emphasize the

BOURNE TO SCULPT

On Dec. 10, 11 sculptor Julie Bourne will host her annual art show and sale at 4300 200 St. The sale will feature a wide variety of raku sculpture, lamp work and bead jewelry. Throughout the day, Bourne will give bead making demos. The event will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each weekend. Call 604-5346994 for more information.

Langley sculptor Elaine Brewer-White fashions a kindness cup out of a slab of clay in her Walnut Grove studio. Although she normally creates humorous figurines, Brewer-White is making brightly coloured mugs, bowls and dishes for the Nov. 25-27 sale in Maple Ridge. practical as well as the pretty. “This is the first time I’ve done anything utilitarian since art school — luckily, I still remember how,” she laughed. As she talks, the artist pulls a block of clay from a clear plastic bag and, using a wire, slices a small chunk off the top. Rolling it into a flat sheet, she carves out a rectangle, using a piece of cardboard and a practised eye to guide the knife. After pressing a pattern into the surface, she rolls it into a small tube and fixes a circle of clay to one end. The finished product will be another of her kindness cups — small, colourful vessels, each bearing an inspiring word —

which will sell for about $15. At the other end of the scale, will be Fort Langley artist Sue Northcott’s handbags, stitched out of leather and other materials recovered from garments that have been sifted from “thrift stores and rag shops.” Those will likely run in the mid-$200 range, said Brewer-White. Artist Billie Jo Thomson’s paintings will be among the items for sale, seamstress Loraie Tylor, with her passion for fabric and flow, is creating “wearable art” for the show, while glass bead maker Chris Clarke is creating original art that visitors can carry home in their pockets. Nygren, having just returned to her artwork from a three-year

hiatus, will display her small oil paintings. Working against a deadline for the Nov. 25-27 show, has been just the push she needed, said Nygren, whose work has taken on a more literal, realistic bent since her return to the easel. Since the idea for the trunk show formed last September, Nygren has produced 14 small pieces for the sale, along with a few bigger pieces that the Maple Ridge home’s vast walls will give her the first opportunity to display. Bohemia in the Burbs is just the beginning of the artists’ new venture. continued, PAGE 25

In the New Year, they’ll be looking for empty spaces to rent out for a couple of weeks at a time, for their ‘pop-up’ galleries. Rather than keep a permanent gallery, the artists hope to rent out spaces for short periods, before closing up shop and relocating at some other point in time. “Then it becomes this element of ‘find me — this is where I’ll be,’” said Brewer White. A trunk show, meanwhile, allows artists to display their work in a home setting, helping people to visualize where a piece might fit in their own dwelling — be it a mansion or a condominium. While some people feel uneasy stepping into an art gallery, a house is another story, said Brewer-White. “It’s a home setting, it’s comfortable. It’s a new way to have conversations with people.” Live music and hot cider

Kyle Burroughs has been selected to play for Team Pacific at the upcoming U17 World Hockey Challenge. The tournament will be held Dec. 29 to Jan. 4 in Windsor, Ont. The 5-11, 175-pound defenceman was among the 22 players named to the team. The squad is made up of players from B.C. and Alberta. Burroughs, a Langley Minor Hockey Association product, is currently playing for the Regina Pats of the Western Hockey League. The 16-year-old has one goal and three points in 17 games. Last season, he played in the B.C. Major Midget Hockey League with the Valley West Hawks. He finished second in the league in defencemen scoring with 11 goals and 36 points. The 10-team tournament features five Canadian teams — Pacific, West, Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic — as well as Germany, Sweden, the Czech Republic, Russia and the United States.

RIVERMEN TAKE PAIR

Garrett JAMES/For the Langley Times

Langley Rivermen forward Mario Puskarich leads the junior A hockey club with a dozen goals through the season’s first 21 games. The 19-year-old is in his first season in the BCHL and comes to Langley from Florida.

Super Mario leads the way Mario Puskarich has shown a nose for the net with a dozen goals in 21 games GARY AHUJA Times Sports

There is no question Mario Puskarich knows how to score. Through 21 games, he leads the Langley Rivermen with a dozen goals. And those numbers are huge considering the Rivermen struggle to find the back of the net. Of the team’s 45 goals — 11 of which came over the weekend in a pair of victories (see side story) — Puskarich has had a hand in 35 per cent of the team’s offence with four assists to go along with the 12 goals. “He has good ability, a good nose for the net and a good shot,” said Langley coach Steve O’Rourke. “The question coming in here was would

he play defence. And surprisingly enough, he is one of our best defending players. “He is really smart on the ice; sometimes it can come across as looking maybe lazy but he is always in the right spot,” the coach added. “You will look up and he is not sprinting to a spot, he is already there.” Puskarich, a winger, joined the Rivermen this off-season after a couple of seasons in the USHL. He spent last season with the Tri-City Storm, a Nebraska junior hockey team. “Langley sounded like a great opportunity,” he said. He came on the Rivermen’s radar when the owner of the Storm recommended him to Langley owner Roy Henderson. Being away from home is nothing new for the Pittsurgh-born but Florida raised Puskarich. Minor hockey is thriving in Florida, but as the players get older, there are limited opportunities as they get older, requiring a move away from home. So at 16, Puskarich went to Chicago for his midget hockey and then wound up in

the USHL after that. “The first year, you get a little home sick at first, but I am used to it so it is not too bad now,” he said. His goal is to earn a college scholarship. O’Rourke says Puskarich has good hockey sense and knows where he needs to be on the ice positionally. The question that remains is if he has the skating ability to play at the next level. “That’s his biggest knock,” the coach said. “He does a lot of other things well.” One thing that can’t be questioned is his work ethic. “He can definitely compete,” the coach said. “Out of the (21) games, there are not very many he has taken off, let alone a shift off. “He has been a pretty consistent competitor for us all through the year.” Another thing working in Puskarich’s favour is his willingness to listen. “When we are showing video, he is always very open to learn how he can get better, what he can improve on,” O’Rourke said. “He is very coachable.”

The Langley Rivermen overcame a pair of poor starts to boast back-toback weekend victories. The Rivermen defeated the Westside Warriors 6-3 on Friday and the Vernon Vipers 5-2 on Saturday in junior A B.C. Hockey League action. Both games were at the Langley Events Centre. Langley gave up the opening goal in both games —including a pair in the first minute to the Warriors — but both times bounced back to take control. The trio of Mike Tebbutt, Darnell Dyck and Chris Tracy combined for nine points against Westside. Against the Vipers, Tebbutt and Darnell again lit up the scoresheet, registering three more points apiece to finish the weekend with six points. Both Rivermen goalies got into the action, with James Barr making 34 sves on Friday —including one on a penalty shot — while Jim Kruger got the call in game two and responded with 37 saves. Langley has a pair of home games on Saturday and Sunday against Coquitlam and Powell River, respectively. See more at www.langleytimes. com.

Sockeyes sock Kodiaks in battle of best In a battle of division leaders, it was the Richmond Sockeyes getting the best of the Aldergrove Kodiaks. The Sockeyes scored a 6-1 decision on Thursday night at Richmond Arena, avenging an earlier defeat at the hands of the Kodiaks the week before. That loss is the only blemish

on Richmond’s season through the first 18 games of the junior B Pacific International Junior Hockey League season. The Sockeyes came out flying, outshooting Aldergrove 21-5 in the opening 20 minutes and striking for three goals. After a scoreless second, Aldergrove’s Thomas

Hardy got the visitors on the board, but Richmond responded with three more goals for the 6-1 final. The Sockeyes outshot the Kodiaks 54-24 on the night. Kevan Kilistoff, a Langley Minor Hockey Association product, was the game’s first star, with two goals and an assist for Richmond. Hardy’s goal was his

At the start of the Grade 8 girls district championship final, coach Cari Gonzalez admits her team was scared. Gonzalez’ Langley Christian squad — at 8-0 and the top seed for the district playoffs — was up against the Langley Fundamental Titans (6-2, third) on Tuesday at the Langley Events Centre. The Titans boasted a pair of players who posed matchup problems for the Lightning. The Titans blew away the Lightning in the opening set, taking it by a 25-11 score. “In the first game, our girls were scared,” Gonzalez admitted. “We had to not be intimidated (by them). “When they realized that they were only two out of six players, they realized they could beat them.” The Lightning won the second set, 25-22 but the Titans took a 2-1 lead thanks to a 25-18 win. With their backs against the wall, Langley Christian took the fourth set 25-18 and then outlasted the Titans in the fifth and

Langley Christian’s Maya Vanderhoek (#9), Amy Antoniak (#11), Chantell Gouthro (#5) and Ali Wergeland (behind Gouthro) celebrate after they won the Grade 8 girls volleyball district final in a nail-biting finish against the Langley Fundamental Titans. Langley Christian advances to the Fraser Valley championships, while the Titans face a wild-card game to see if their season continues. deciding set, 18-16. “The girls worked really hard to get to this point,” Gonzalez said. “Their skills were coming along nicely, but for the past couple of weeks, their mental game — staying mentally tough while playing and not being discouraged — was really lacking. “So we really worked on this in practice and they pulled through for the final game.”

And in the final, the Lightning pulled it all together, staying focused, communicating and cutting down on unforced errors. She also credited the play of setter Maya Vanderhoek — who kept the team focused and positive, while proving clutch at the service line — and Ali Wergeland — who was strong all around, with big kills, huge blocks and consistent serving

— as big reasons for the team’s success. Chantelle Gouthro and Amy Antoniak also drew the coach’s praise. The victory advances the Lightning to the Fraser Valley championships, which will be held at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary (Nov. 25/26). The Titans face a wild-card game tomorrow (Wednesday) in hopes of qualifying for the tournament.

Walnut Grove Gators’ Wei Chung (#24) and Kierin Eggen (33) team up to block the shot of Langley Christian Ligthning’s Jesiah Orr during the Grade 8 boys district championship volleyball game. The Gators won 3-2 and both teams advanced to the Fraser Valley championships.

The Walnut Grove Gators overcame their nerves to knock off the Langley Christian Lightning and capture the district title. The two Grade 8 boys volleyball teams — the top two seeds during the regular season with Langley Christian ranked higher — met in the district championship game on Tuesday (Nov. 15) at the Langley Events Centre. The Lightning won the first and fourth sets — 26-24 and 25-18 — while Walnut Grove took sets two and four — 25-18 and 25-20 — to set up a fifth and deciding set. “It was two good teams going at it,” said Walnut Grove coach Terry Stead. “We didn’t play our best volleyball; we just found a way to win.” The victory qualifies the Gators for the upcoming Fraser Valley championships, which will be played at Langley Christian on Nov. 25 and 26. Langley Christian will also be in attendance at the tournament. This was the fourth time Walnut Grove and Langley Christian matched up, including twice in the regular season. The Lightning won the first match while the Gators won the latter, and Langley Christian was given the top seed because they won their match in one fewer sets. The third game was at a mid-season tournament with Walnut Grove prevailing.
