Road rage trial begins Langley man charged with hit-and-run-death DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter
ALONG FOR THE RIDE
Miranda GATHERCOLE/Langley Times
Kenny Berg’s 1929 Ford Model A has been turned into a tribute to his favourite movie, Creature From the Black Lagoon. The car has only been finished for a year, and this year was the first time the Walnut Grove resident entered a car in Cruise-In. For more about the annual car show which was held in Langley City on Saturday, see page 23.
No criminal charges against Green Mayor ‘thrilled’ by ruling DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter
Special prosecutor David Crossin, Q.C. has concluded that no charges should be laid against Langley Township Mayor Rick Green. The decision was announced in a written statement issued Friday morning (Sept. 9). The Crossin ruling follows an RCMP investigation into an accusation that Green violated privacy laws in September 2010 after he was censured by Langley Township council. “Having reviewed the investigative report prepared by the police and applied Criminal Justice Branch
policies and charge approval standards, Mr. Crossin concluded that there is no substantial likelihood of conviction for any offences,” said the statement issued by the Criminal Justice Branch. Crossin was appointed in June to conduct an independent charge assessment review of the report to Crown prosecutors by police. “Given that no charges have been approved by Mr. Crossin, neither he nor the Criminal Justice Branch will be releasing any details of the report which he reviewed,” the statement said. Green was delighted by the decision. “It’s what I expected it to be and what I hoped it would be,” he said. “I’m just thrilled.” The police investigation of the mayor was prompted by an anonymous

letter alleging breaches of the Privacy Act and Community Charter when Green made a public statement on Sept. 14, 2010, the day after he was publicly censured by council over his conduct in the Brownshak affair. Green had told council in a closeddoor session in 2009 that he had received an anonymous letter and copies of corporate records about Brownshak, a small Langley developer at the centre of a political controversy. Green said that these documents might support allegations of improper conduct by Brownshak and its principals, who were the wives of realtors Joel Schacter and Bob Bailey, and of MLA Rich Coleman and Township administrator Mark Bakken.
Brent Parent said nothing as the charges against him were read out by a court clerk Monday morning in a B.C. Supreme Court chamber in New Westminster. At each count, his lawyer spoke for him, saying “Mr. Parent pleads not guilty.” There are five road rage-related charges against the Langley man. They include criminal negligence causing the death of 21-year-old Silas O’Brien of Abbotsford on March 13, 2008 in Langley, dangerous operation of a motor vehicle and leaving the scene of the accident. More than a dozen family and friends of O’Brien showed up for the first day of court, forcing court administrators to change courtrooms to find one big enough to accommodate everyone. A grim-faced Parent, who is not in custody, arrived with a female companion who was careful to sit apart from the O’Brien family in the courtroom visitor’s gallery after Parent took his seat in the trial chamber. In her opening statement, Crown prosecutor Donna Ballyk said the evidence will show that immediately after Parent ran O’Brien down, he went home and sat in his hot tub having beer with his brother and talking so loudly that they disturbed a neighbour. The next day, police arrested Parent and his brother as they were leaving the property. By then a distinctive sled deck had been removed from the truck which Parent allegedly used to run down O’Brien. Ballyk said the evidence will show that O’Brien and two friends were in a Chevy Silverado heading to the airport for a flight to Hawaii when they made contact with a Ford F250 truck driven by Parent, whose brother was riding with him. The Silverado was hit a glancing blow on the passenger side, while the Ford suffered a scrape on the driver’s side. After that, Ballyk said, Parent ran the Ford off the road into a ditch, then returned and ran O’Brien down. At the time, Parent was 38. The first witness called by the prosecution was a former New Westminster Police officer continued, PAGE 4

news Kositsky decides to run for mayor The
FRANK BUCHOLTZ Times Reporter
Longtime Langley Township Councillor Mel Kositsky has officially confirmed that he is running for mayor. Kositsky, 60, sent out a press release late Sunday night to make the word official. In late August, he said he was considering running for the position, and promised a decision before the first council meeting in September. Council met for the first time since July 25 on Monday. He will be running against incumbent Rick Green and newcomer Jack Froese. Green has assembled a group of candidates under the Vote Langley Now banner, while Froese is running as an independent. The Vote Langley Now group is running seven council candidates, and when the slate was unveiled in July, Green asked voters to save a vote for Kositsky. “I did not know anything about the political rally in late July held by Mayor Green and his new political slate,” Kositsky said. “Neither Mayor Green nor any of his chosen seven candidates talked to me about their plans or invited me to that meeting. I was shocked to read about it on the Internet the next day. “While I thank Mayor Green for his nice comments about me that night, I have

I will be asking Township residents to choose me on Nov. 19 to lead council through the next three years. “(The people of Langley) have invested in my leadership training, and now it’s time for me to step up to the plate and bring back some civility and respect to our local government.” Both Green and Froese welcome Kositsky’s entrance into the race for mayor. “It adds a whole new dimension,” Green said. “I can’t wait for it to get underway.” He said his Vote Langley Now group had never planned to run eight candidates for councillor, and he endorsed Kositsky for council in July “because Mel did not and has not participated in the political attacks, as other members of council have.” Froese said “it’s good to see choice, and I welcome him into the race. He’s been around Langley for a long time, and democracy is all about choices.” Froese believes Kositsky’s entrance into the race will likely boost voter turnout, which be considers “a win for Langley.”
Fassbender to seek third term as mayor BRENDA ANDERSON Times Reporter
Langley City’s mayor will seek a third term in office. Peter Fassbender signed his nomination papers on Thursday morning, making official his intent to seek three more years as mayor, following the Nov. 19 civic election. During his announcement at City Hall, Fassbender cited his experience, work ethic, passion for the city and his business acumen as factors working in his favour. “It’s not enough to run (for office) because you’re anti-something,” said Fassbender.“You have to have a vision. I hope people who run will stand up and say, ‘Here’s what I offer and who I am.” “I believe in the process. I think elections are healthy,” said Fassbender. “I hope citizens realize how important their decision is — who they choose. “Pay attention to who’s running, why and what their vision is,” he said. That vision must extend beyond City borders, he added, because the role of mayor doesn’t end at the municipal boundaries, but includes representing the City’s interests throughout the region. During his six years as mayor, Fassbender
has served on numerous regional boards and committees — addressing everything from health, to policing, libraries, housing, regional growth and transportation. He also touched once again on the issue of amalgamation, saying that while it might conjure up good feelings to think of ‘one Langley,’ until it makes economic sense for the City and Township to amalgamate, it’s not something he’s interested in pursuing. He will, however, continue to promote development — and a larger tax base — within the City, he said, as long as it’s done in a fiscally responsible way. “I’d like to see the community remain debt-free,” Fassbender said, noting the City is one of very few communities that can make such a claim. To achieve that, he added, “you use what you have, in a pragmatic fashion.” One of the City’s greatest financial assets continues to be Cascades Casino, which funnels about $6 million into City coffers annually. It’s vital, he said, that the City continue to not use proceeds from the casino as operating funds. Cascades has been a major contributor over the several years it has been in operation, but revenues are declining as gambling options expand, he said. One of the greatest challenges of the

The three occupants were standing on the side of the road surveying the damage when the F250 returned. Dooley and Stevens jumped out of the way but O’Brien was hit. He died at the scene. O’Brien and his friends were members of the Cloverdale Bible Way church, part of a tight-knit youth group They attended a prayer meeting the night before they left for Hawaii, joined by more than 500 members of their congregation including their families, who were there to wish the trio a good trip. O’Brien left behind six siblings, his parents, and many friends. He also had a girlfriend Megan Williamson, a competitive figure skater with the Langley Skating Club. The trial has been scheduled for 10 days before B.C. Supreme Court justice Terence A. Schultes. The Crown lawyer is expected to wrap up the prosecution case by the end of the week. Then it will be the turn of defence lawyer Vincent Michaels. Parent faces a possible sentence of life in prison if convicted.

The allegations were found to be groundless. At the Sept. 14, 2010 press conference, Green admitted that he had misled council at that emergency meeting about Brownshak. He claimed the anonymous letter had arrived the day before the emergency meeting, when in fact he had known about the Brownshak documents since August of 2009. According to a Township press release, Green apologized to council at two closed meetings. Council censured Green and stripped the mayor of all his appointments on the Metro Vancouver

“I’ve maintained since day one that I did nothing wrong,” Green said. “We’ve wasted far too much time, energy and money on a non-issue.” Green added he has copies of “everything said and done over the last two years.” “I’m seriously considering my options,” he said. — with files from Natasha Jones

CAPSULE COMMENTS with Pinder Mann
As Fall approaches, thoughts turn to colds and how to prevent or shorten them. Zinc supplements are commonly suggested to help but shouldn’t be taken for more than a week or so. Too much zinc can rob our bodies of copper and too much zinc can cause other problems. See our pharmacists for advice. The message about the dangers of high blood pressure is getting through to Canadians. We have one of the lowest average blood pressures in the world and because of this, deaths from heart attacks are greatly reduced. The “normal” blood pressure used to be 120/80. Now, doctors are preferring 115/75 as the goal.

Police seek witnesses to serious collision Staff Writer
Langley RCMP are looking for witnesses to a two-vehicle collision that occurred Friday (Sept 9) around 5:45 p.m. at the intersection of 256 Street and 64 Avenue. On arrival police found the driver of a GMC Sonoma had been ejected from his vehicle and was lying in a nearby ditch. He was transported to hospital via air ambulance and is now in stable condition. The female driver and male passenger in a Dodge Ram were transported to hospital for treatment of broken bones, soft tissue damage and skin gashes. Police believe alcohol to be a factor in the collision. Langley RCMP would like to speak to anyone who witnessed the collision or
stopped to offer assistance who has not yet spoken to police.

Local vote is vital
Too soon for Order of B.C.
n just over two months, residents of Langley City and Langley Township will be asked to go to the polls and elect new councils, as well as the seven members of the Langley Board of Education. They will be elected for three-year terms, which means they will be overseeing local governments until December, 2014. These three local governments are very important to the day-to-day lives of Langley residents, and it would be wonderful if many more residents went to the polls to elect mayors, councillors and trustees. Historically, the voter turnout in Langley is about 15 to 20 per cent, which means that 80 to 85 per cent of eligible voters don’t bother to take part. This means that incumbents almost always get back in, simply because they are better known. This is not to say that they aren’t worthy of re-election, but most can get re-elected by simply showing up to events and ensuring that they keep in touch with the small number of people who vote. In Langley City, this is particularly easy, as about 3,000 people usually vote. It isn’t hard to have some contact with almost all those voters over three years. There are many key issues which will affect all Langley residents, and how they are dealt with will impact taxpayers’ wallets, and the overall welfare of the community. One is the level of education services offered to students, in light of Langley School District’s $13 million deficit. This must be repaid, and trustee candidates need to show how this won’t impact the quality of education students receive. Education has a key impact on their future. Another is the rate of tax increases in both the City and Township. Steady increases in the four and five per cent range are simply unsustainable, as the economy remains unsteady. Candidates for council need to show how they can hold the line on expenses, or say if they are even willing to consider that as an option. New contracts with unionized staff are on the horizon, and wages and benefits are a major part of municipal budgets. Local governments also have a voice with TransLink and Metro Vancouver, and their spending plans and services (or lack thereof) have a major effect on Langley’s livability. What will candidates do to get better value for money from these bodies? Taking part in the local vote is important, and The Times will provide plenty of information in coming weeks.

iming is everything and the decision to award former B.C. premier Gordon Campbell the Order of B.C. now, rather than sometime down the road when one can look at his legacy in more historic terms, is ridiculous and makes no sense at all. What was the committee thinking? It’s been only days since one of the former premier’s unfortunate legacies, the HST, went down to defeat after it already cost him his job and quite possibly his party’s grip on power come the next election. And the committee wants to give him the province’s highest award while the HST fiasco, which will cost us untold millions once it’s reversed, is fresh in everyone’s minds? Yikes. It’s no wonder there are online protests and petitions gathering steam in cyberspace. Especially when you consider previous premiers Dave Barrett and Mike Harcourt have never received the honour and longtime B.C. leader Bill Bennett only got his two decades after he left office. Certainly Campbell’s legacy includes the Vancouver/Whistler Olympics that were a huge success, a fairly tight grip on the provincial economy and years of service as the mayor of the province’s biggest city. His lengthy record of public service deserves consideration for the Order of B.C., but later when his record can be looked at with some semblance of sober second thought. Not now when the sting of the HST is too much in our minds and when, in reality, his original mandate to govern as premier hasn’t even ended yet. In fact, there’s some debate about whether as a sitting politician up until March of this year, he is even eligible to receive this honour. —Vernon Morning Star (Black Press)

Time to speak up about TransLink Editor: “Soaring ridership is putting TransLink under pressure”, according to reports in The Times and Aldergrove Star. We in the Township of Langley were lured into what was then called the GVRD (now Metro Vancouver) in the late 1980s by thenmayor John Beales. This was wise, or otherwise. We are now committed. The thought of joining the GVRD, with all of it aspirations, was fine in theory. But the Township did not have a long-range balanced agenda in terms of joining the regional district. Enthusiasm, plus self-serving aspirations, often supercedes common sense.
Out Township is a victim of these consequences. The Township is now part of a huge, uncontrollable octopus. So how do we manage the many octopod characteristics? When it comes to TransLink, an allied regional agency, it’s like sandpaper against the bare skin. There have been no communications with constituents in Langley who pay for TransLink. Most decisions are arbitrary ones, from the top down. TransLink is constantly draining away our personal resources, to serve whom? It is certainly not serving most residents of the Township. TransLink has taken its case for more funds
as far away as Ottawa, but it continues to flounder. It’s time to settle down. As the current situation in the U.S. shows, public agencies can’t endlessly keep going to the well for more money. People need to open their eyes and become informed about how TransLink and Metro Vancouver are wanting more and more of their money each year. Local politicians need to do the same. There has been too much government on “autopilot” in the past. Now is the time for citizens and politicians to start speaking up. Harvey Schultz, Aldergrove
COUNCILLOR FOX RESPONDS
Committee’s report was duly considered Editor: A recent letter to the editor from Robert Moats (The Times, Sept. 6) reflected on the Township Mayor’s Standing Committee on Finance and stated that council had “staunchly rejected all of its recommendations.” As a member of council, I thought it prudent that the public got the truth regarding this committee’s report and recommendations. I would suggest that the public request a copy of this, so they are clear what the final recommendations were, and they can then make informed and responsible decisions regarding its work. I might point out that the final report was not unanimously supported by the task force members. Here are some of the recommendations and council’s response to them. ❒ Maintain all current service levels at today’s level. In fact, this council voted to remove over $1.4 million from the Township budget by diligently pursuing efficiencies, the capital project budget and not replacing staff. This equates into a 1.8 per cent tax saving. ❒ Establish a Property Endowment Fund. This was a motion made at a public meeting in December, 2009 to complete a business case for the concept, and the mayor has done nothing to act on this and follow though. ❒ The airport should be established as a separate business unit and profit centre. A complete study of the Langley Regional Airport was undertaken by an outside professional in the field, and he recommended against this action, and to leave the model as it is. ❒ Undertake a review of TOL rental rates The
— it’s been done. ❒ A vehicle fleet management review should be undertaken — done ❒ Implement a review of the local firefighting structure. This was done by a highly respected Charlie outside consultant. Fox ❒ The Mayor’s Standing Committee on Finance should be continued. It was the committee members’ decision to resign in January, 2010 and council found out about it in February 2010. Council actually expected the committee to continue, but they chose otherwise. The following are what council discussed and did not act on. ❒ A general tax increase of .93 per cent. This was impossible, as it would have left a taxable debt load of over $7 million at the end of the three-year term for the future generations of taxpayers in the Township. These figures are confirmed by the accountants. No other jurisdiction locally had a tax increase anywhere near that amount, so one needs to ask why. The Township has no casino funds, no endowment funds (only Vancouver does) so a debt load was inevitable and this is not the legacy council was willing to leave. Of note is that Vancouver had a 4.2 per cent residential tax increase in 2011 (.25 per cent higher than the Township) and it has access to endowment funds. ❒ Maintain current wage and benefit costs at January 2009 levels. This was impossible, as wage contracts are duly negotiated in good faith at the Metro Vancouver labour relations
level, and are out of our control as they apply regionally. ❒ Look at utilities and their associated statutory reserves, including transferring funds between reserves or between operation expenditures and capital. These recommendations were referred to legal counsel and deemed illegal to follow through with, so no action was taken. ❒ Use the ‘zero-based’ budgeting process. Again this recommendation was discussed and it was determined by vote of council to continue the process as is. The question needs to be asked, why is nobody else using the ‘zero-based’ budget process? It is not more efficient or effective in the public sector, with the GAAP rules and Community Charter rules. ❒ The suggestion that all property sold should go into an endowment fund. The Township has a limited inventory of surplus lands to begin with. Further, the TOL has a history of using land to gain land, either through land swaps or sell/buy arrangements. A review of all sale/purchase policies was completed by council and the policies and principles were found to be sound and legally within the boundaries of the Community Charter and the principles of common law. Council has paid due respect to the committee’s recommendations and has implemented many of them. Some were illegal and some determined to not be functional, but clear consideration of the report was given and that needs to be understood. Councillor Charlie Fox

sentencing hearing for money laundering on Thursday (Sept. 8) in Surrey Provincial Court. The 33-year-old former owner of a Langley currency exchange sat miserably slumped in his chair, sniffling audibly, as the court heard how Rathor, the owner of a Langley currency exchange and a former corrections officer with no criminal record, was caught in an RCMP sting. Over a six-month
period from April 16 to May 26, Rathor exchanged $560,000 U.S. in four transactions for two men he believed were drug dealers. They were actually an undercover RCMP sergeant and corporal. The pair started with smaller transactions and hints that

As they progressed to larger amounts, the two become more direct. “I move green down and I move white up,” one said, indicating they were exporting marijuana to the U.S. and bringing cocaine back. “I’m not a doctor or a lawyer and the money I have with me is cocaine money,” one told Rathor. The two currency exchanges run by Rathor were raided on May 26, 2008, one at Global Tourist Centre (GTC) at 20505 Fraser Highway, the other at Capital Forex, 5560 204 St. At the time, the RCMP said officers were acting on a tip. Prosecutor Charles Hough said Rathor’s profits on all the exchanges were “modest,”no more than $16,000. “It didn’t take much to cause Robinderpal to leave the straight and narrow path,” Hough said,“just a few bucks.” The prosecutor wants a sentence of two years less a day.

‘I am trying to make up for my mistakes’ from PAGE 10
Richard Peck wants house arrest. “There are times when a person deserves a second chance,” Peck said. “This man is such a person.” His client has already paid a heavy price, Peck said. Rathor’s marriage is “in tatters,” the lawyer said, adding Rathor has brought shame to himself and his family, and he’s lost $264,000 in money seized by the police from the business and the loss of the business itself. Peck filed 85 letters of support that included two from former mayors from his home town, a retired RCMP officer and a local MLA, all saying Rathor was a person of honesty and integrity, and his flirtation with supposed drug dealers was very out of character. No explanation for Rathor’s strange change of behavior was advanced, other than this observation by Peck. “He [Rathor] is a person who is desperate to please,” the defence lawyer said. “A person who is desperate to help others.” Peck said a term of house arrest with strict conditions would meet
the legal principal of deterrence and denunciation. “I’m not asking for a kiss in the form of a milquetoast conditional sentence,” Peck said. Then, it was Rathor’s turn to speak. He rose and unfolded a note from his pocket. Rathor had trouble speaking, and needed long pauses, so long the judge offered to have his lawyer read it for him. But Rathor was able to complete his statement, offering his “sincerest apologies” to his family, friends and colleagues in the corrections service and saying he hopes to be a better example to his young son. “I’m trying to make up for my mistakes,” the tearful Rathor said, mistakes he will “never, ever repeat.” Judge Peder Gulbransen is scheduled to deliver his verdict on Oct. 5. The prosecutor stayed related criminal charges against Taranjit Rathor, the younger cousin of Robinderpal and a partner in the Langley currency exchanges. The prosecutor said the younger Rathor “took a back seat” to his older relative during the illicit transactions and was “essentially along for the ride.”

Private power producers want to stay the course
.C.’s private power producers held a news conference here in the capital last week, to plead with the B.C. government not to back down from its target of self-sufficiency in clean energy by 2016. The review panel looking at BC Hydro rates recommended that one way the utility might save money would be to change the definition of self-sufficiency. Currently that means having enough domestic clean electricity supply even in low water years. The B.C. Clean Energy Association was supported by University of Victoria climate scientist Andrew Weaver, who wants B.C. to continue to develop its unique clean energy resources. That will reduce BC Hydro’s reliance on the open electricity market, and help to reduce demand for further coal and natural gas generation. Weaver says people still skeptical about climate change should check out the current state of Arctic sea ice. It has retreated drastically again this summer and may reach an even smaller size than it did in 2007, which was the biggest melt since satellite records became available in 1979. The five greatest ice retreats have been in the past five years. The U.S. National Snow and Ice Data Centre reported Sept. 6 that both the Northwest Passage through Canada’s Arctic and the sea route north of Russia “appear to be open.” Another supporter is Judith Sayers, a former chief from NuuChah-Nulth territory on Vancouver Island, who now teaches aboriginal law at the University of Victoria. She talked about

When premier Christy Clark unveils a new job creation plan for B.C. later this month, it will likely include an emphasis on training for blue collar trades work like carpentry, plumbing, welding and operating heavy equipment. Chilliwack Liberal MLA John Les dropped a strong hint about the provincial governmentâ€™s likely new direction during a Langley visit last week (Sept. 8). â€œThose kinds of jobs are going begging across the province and they pay very, very, very well,â€? Les told The Times during an interview at local MLA Mary Polakâ€™s office. â€œThose are good family-supporting jobs. We need to be focused on trades training.â€?

Chilliwack Liberal MLA John Les, secretary to the premier, hinted the government plans to promote blue-collar employment. Les, the parliamentary secretary to the premier, has been conducting a â€œjobs tourâ€? for the premier by meeting with local chambers of commerce and business representatives to get information about regional job needs. â€œMy job is to connect with people and gather up ideas,â€? Les said. Before he came to Langley, Les visited northwest B.C. and Vancouver island.
His next scheduled stops were the Okanagan and the Cariboo. The focus on trades jobs fits with another likely aspect of the provincial governmentâ€™s job creation program, a new emphasis on business with booming Pacific Rim economies like China, which is expected to have a voracious appetite for B.C. copper, coal and natural gas, according to Les.

Celebrating Member Service
A new lighted synthetic turf field at Willoughby Community Park officially opened Sept. 2 with a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Located off 202A Street on the south side of R.E. Mountain Secondary School near the Langley Events Centre, the new field is unique because it is one-third larger than traditional soccer fields and is the first synthetic field in Langley to include a softball diamond. The extra size also allowed for the addition of two 8 vs. 8 soccer fields to the east of the full-sized soccer field. The $3 million project was made possible through a $1 million contribution from the Government of Canada’s Recreational Infrastructure Canada (RInC) program and $600,000 in funding contributed by the

and Development Manager Al Neufeld said was very accommodating during the construction process. “This is the third synthetic turf field featured at Willoughby Community Park, which sets the park up to host tournaments that can proceed without being dependent on the weather,” Neufeld said. Synthetic fields, which are made from polypropylene fibre, can withstand more wear and tear and provide up to six times the amount of play than traditional turf fields. As well, the artificial fields are lit, allowing for night-time events and continued play through the entire year. The new field is next to a new indoor tennis facility, natural grass playing fields, sand volleyball courts, a spray park, playground, and picnic area in Willoughby Community Park. Two more softball diamonds are to be developed in the park in the future.

Langley MP Mark Warawa, on behalf of the Honourable Lynne Yelich, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification. “Installation of the lighted synthetic turf field will offer more practice time and space for Langley’s baseball, soccer, and lacrosse enthusiasts of all ages,” Warawa added. “The Township of Langley is truly grateful to our funding partners who made construction of this enhanced facility possible,” Mayor Rick Green said. “We are thrilled that Langley United and Langley Football made such a generous contribution, and that the federal government saw the benefit of matching our funding.” The new complex also features extra storage areas for soccer goals, covered players’ benches, and covered spectator areas. The facility includes a parking lot that was created for park users on R.E. Mountain school property, which Township Parks Design

Couple face charges in string of robberies Pair believed to be responsible for up to 16 holdups Staff Writer
Two 26-year-olds, a man and his girlfriend, have been arrested in connection with a five-month spree of holdups that included two fast food outlets and a liquor store in Langley and Surrey. A police spokesperson said the pair are suspects in up to 16 robberies of fast food locations and businesses across the Lower Mainland and southern BC. The man is in jail awaiting trial. He has been charged with three counts each of robbery and disguise with intent in relation to robberies at two Subway sandwich shops and
a liquor store in the Surrey/Langley area. A female accomplice, believed to be the suspect’s girlfriend, has also been charged with two counts of robbery in relation to same robberies. She was released from custody pending trial. The robberies happened between May and September of this year. “A good tip led us to this pair,” said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the RCMP Lower Mainland District Regional Police Service. “Even though there was no weapon produced in these robberies, they were obviously very upsetting for the employees of these businesses.” Police will be recommending four more charges of robbery and disguise with intent, for other incidents in Port Moody, Langley and Chilliwack. They may also face charges from Coquitlam, Abbotsford and Kelowna.

Egg drop returns
The immediate goal is to get an egg to survive a four-storey drop, but the ultimate goal is to raise money for the United Way. Township of Langley staff will be holding a second Egg Drop later this month. Last year competitors paid a fee
which was donated to the United Way, headed to the fourth floor of the Civic Facility, and lobbed their eggs off the roof towards a target on a tarp below. Contraptions ranging from big bags of balloons to elaborate crash protectors fashioned from boxes and wire were used to encase the eggs.
The creator of the invention that best protected its precious cargo and came closest to the target was declared the winner. “Last year’s event was so much fun and generated a lot of interested in our United Way campaign,” said Human Resources Director Shannon Harvey-Renner, who is co-chairing the Township’s United Way

A ban on smoking in regional parks, except in designated areas, will go to the Metro Vancouver board for a final vote later this month. The region’s parks committee voted 5-4 Wednesday to proceed with the tougher restrictions on smokers who use Metro-run parks, trails and beaches. Committee chair Gayle Martin, a Langley City councillor, said the plan would leave it to Metro staff to define permitted smoking zones near where people spend long periods of time — beaches, shelters, reservable buildings and campsites. “There would be no smoking anywhere in Metro Vancouver parks except for those designated smoking areas,” she said. “If you’re taking a walk on a trail, you will not be able to smoke.” Martin, a smoker herself, was one of the four directors who opposed the new policy. She argued a better approach would have been to define specific no-smoking zones to protect people in high-use areas but let smokers puff away everywhere else in Metro parks. “I’ve never had one complaint about people smoking in regional parks,” Martin said. Posting signs and other printed information on the policy would cost the region up to $23,000, if the recommendation is adopted by the board Sept. 24. A Metro staff report estimated only 10 to 15 per cent of park-goers smoke and that most would likely voluntarily comply with the new restrictions without any extra spending on enforcement. Smoking zones would only be designated where there is little risk of second-hand smoke exposure to others, smoking litter is contained and there is no risk of fire starts. Committee members in favour of the partial ban were Pitt Meadows Mayor Don MacLean, Vancouver Councillor Tim Stevenson, Abbotsford Mayor George Peary, Delta Councillor Scott Hamilton and Langley Township Councillor Mel Kositsky. The debate came after a presentation from the Canadian Cancer Society, which urged Metro to proceed with a ban. “A comprehensive ban on tobacco use within regional parks would eliminate exposure of park users to second-hand smoke, protect the park environment from tobacco litter and reduce fire risk as a result of tobacco products,” society campaigner Brittney Parks said in a presentation. The Wreck Beach Preservation Society opposed the smoking ban and a volunteer co-ordinator at Pacific Spirit Regional Park urged Metro to put the money to better uses.

Welcome GREG SEWELL W are very excited to inform you that on Tuesday September 6, We Otter Co-op opened a Produce Market in the McMillan area of Abbotsford. O This market not only carries fresh produce, it has groceries, dairy, bread, T ffresh ﬂowers, lottery as well as hotdogs, milkshakes and slushees. Stop in and check out this great little market at 2618 McMillan Road in Abbotsford.
Otter Co-op is pleased to welcome Greg Sewell as the Store Manager of Your Community Market at Glen Mountain in Abbotsford. Greg started working in produce at the age of sixteen with Woodward’s grocery store at Sevenoaks in Abbotsford. He continued on with Woodward’s in Coquitlam and Park Royal
and then they were bought out by Safeway. Greg then opened his own produce store in Abbotsford where he continued for ten years. It was after that Greg changed his career path for a while by running a Sports Traders store in Vernon for approximately six years. Greg then returned to Abbotsford and went to work for IGA. Greg has
a son and a daughter and makes his home in Abbotsford. He is a very avid sports fan whether watching or participating. Greg says he absolutely loves to work with the public. He also said it has only been a short time but he is really enjoying his job with Otter Co-op and he would highly recommend it to anyone seeking employment.

GreetingsOtter Co-op Membership! President’s Message: I believe the theme Beneﬁts of Membership is appropriate as we are in the midst of handing out Equity cheques to our members. A person can join the Otter Co-op for a onetime fee of $10 and become a life time member of the association. The Board of Directors reviews and approves all new member applications on a monthly basis. The member will have the right to a vote at the AGM on a Frank Hauzer variety of reports, any changes to the ‘Rules of the Otter President Farm and Home Co-operative’ as well as the election of directors that will represent the membership. During the course of the year there is a members’ sale plus numerous social functions for your participation. Otter Co-op is locally owned and strives to make each member feel a sense of ownership and family. At the moment we are selling numbers in the 57,000 range, with approximately 31,600 being active members. Patronage return is the amount that the association allocates to pay back to its members based on the business done by them through the Co-op. The 2010 patronage refund amounted to $3.65 million, with $2.85 million being paid out in cash. This year the membership approved a return of 4.19% as recommended by the Board of Directors At present, we have ﬁve gas bars in operation, the main retail centre and feed mill on 248th Street and the Pitt Meadows hardware and bagged feed outlet. As you will see in this issue we have just opened a fresh produce market at 2618 McMillan Road in Abbotsford, and anxiously await the opening of our new pharmacy at 2596 McMillan Road later this month. By 2013 our plans are to build a gas bar on Hwy 11 between Mission and Abbotsford. Other future plans include diversifying and expanding as opportunities arise. Diversifying is the key to assuring our future business success so that if one component of our business is struggling the balance will carry it. Remember what we have always been told, “don’t have all your eggs in one basket.” I believe if we attempt to capture the human beings basic needs, we should be successful with our business. We continue to explore opportunities on the north side of the Fraser River; east side of the Fraser Valley, as well as the southern BC interior. Whether it is a new gas bar, expanding our bagged feed distribution or an additional retail centre, we will continue to explore all avenues in search of the best opportunities for Otter Co-op and its members.

Otter Co-op’s Operations General Manager’s Message SSpring Wow, is it really September already, where did tthe summer go? I hope you have all been enjoying the g great weather we have been having recently; it seems llike the ﬁrst week of September was the hottest week of the summer! Maybe that means we’ll have a long, o warm and dry fall season. w W We’ve been very busy at the Co-op over the summer, Jack Nicholson with lots of great events going on at all of our locations, w General Manager aas well as the construction of a couple of new projects. We opened a new Produce/Convenience Store in Abbotsford on September W 6th. If you haven’t had a chance yet to visit, be sure and stop in on McMillan 6 Road and take a tour, it looks fantastic! Otter Co-op will also be opening a R sstand-alone pharmacy just a couple of doors down from the produce store at tthe beginning of October, and we are looking forward to that location being a huge success as well. Grand Opening Celebrations will be held for both stores h iin early October, so be sure to check out our website and Facebook for updated news on when that will happen. n We continue to move ahead with plans to re-develop our gas bar, convenience W sstore and cardlock on the corner of 248th and Fraser Highway, as well as plans for a new gas bar and convenience store on Highway 11, between Abbotsford and Mission. Otter Co-op is also working towards developing a property we own in Ladner next to our gas bar and car wash, and have been in contact with several businesses that may be interested in having us develop this property for them. As for the rest of the Co-op, the year is also keeping busy. After 24 weeks into our ﬁscal year, our sales are at $69,855,128; which is ahead of last year at this same time by over $11,000,000! This is a fantastic start to the year, considering all of the challenges in new competition, the low American dollar that has driven cross border shopping up, and the uncertainty of the economy. We are very pleased with our results to date, and are looking forward to another record year for Otter Co-op! Of course much of the success is due to you, our loyal customers, and the fantastic staff that we have working as a Team here at the Co-op. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our membership and staff for continuing to improve on the Co-op model of returning membership beneﬁts to you. This is the big difference between the Co-op and other big businesses. Being a member/owner, you are sharing in the success of the business, as the savings or proﬁts of the Co-op remain here in our communities and returned to the customers using our services; as opposed to going off to some corporate head ofﬁce somewhere. Part of this was the over $2.85 million returned to members in cash during our Equity Days Celebrations September 8, 9 and 10th. And did you realize that Otter Co-op donates well in excess of $100,000 every year to groups and events throughout our trading area? So be sure and use that membership of yours, and continue to reap the rewards of membership!

AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT I WON A CAR! To Richard Bonneau, Jack Nicholson, and the incredible sta from the Otter Co-op. staff My family and I would like to thank you so very much for the wonderful experience of Winning A Car! From the time I ﬁlled out the ﬁrst ballot to ex the many more over the following 16 weeks, there was always that thought th of “what if”. When I received the phone call at Week #10 my journey of o anticipation and never ending “Good Lucks” began. Never did I imagine that I would be on a stage with 15 other winners awaiting the possibility of winning a car. When it came down to the last two I though “wouldn’t it be great to win a Big Screen TV to watch the Canuck playoff game tonight.” But it was not to be! As luck would have it I won a car. A Big thank you to the Aldergrove Otter Co-op and The Honda Way for a great contest. I now have a fabulous vehicle and an amazing story to tell my family and friends.
Your devoted shopper always, Christine Richardson

NEWS Tanner Graham 2011-2012 Junior Director
VOICE OF the junior director The last three months have undoubtedly revealed a side of the Otter Co-op which I had been unaware. I do not refer merely to the swirling discussion bouncing around the long table of the Boardroom, but also the inner workings and magnitude of such an organization. My conception of the Otter Co-op’s directors has indeed grown: from the stereotypical business people launching questions at me in the form of an interview, to a group of mentors welcoming me and going out of
their way to pass on experience. This transition began to put the theoretical advantages of a Co-op I had talked about in my application, into real life perspective. I soon became aware of the advantages of member-made board elections, in terms of ﬁnding such dedicated, admirable people to carry on the Co-op’s success. When the time came for the annual Board tour, I was granted the opportunity to witness this success. It was a huge eye opener. Prior to the tour, I had been quite familiar with the Otter Co-op’s main retail store and 248th street gas station. I knew about the feed mill neighbouring the store, and had driven by a gas station further down Fraser Highway. Soon, I was blown away by the extent of the Co-op across the Fraser Valley. I was exceedingly impressed by the ﬁve gas bars, but what really got me excited was the expansion plans. The empty lot of a future gas bar on the Abbotsford-Mission Highway may have been bare, but the potential that lay beneath the over grown grass was unmistakeable. What was even more exciting was the future pharmacy and convenience stores in Abbotsford.
The great location of these two is sure to provide great success right from their opening in September. The tour of the feed mill may have been the most impressive. What struck me the most was the new robotic arm that stacked bags of feed off of the conveyor belt. This revealed great contrast with my former idea of Co-op being behind major corporations in terms of modernization. I was amazed by the way Co-op had adapted with modern technology to ﬁnd a perfect balance. My conception of the Co-op had grown from one of a little farm store to a highly efﬁcient organization. I look forward to this understanding growing further throughout the rest of my term as Junior Director and must once again say thank-you for such an opportunity. I am excited to be a part of the Co-op’s future and to continue the long legacy of the Co-op’s past. I am sure that such success will carry forth as the strong communal structure holds while we open up to exciting technology and modernization.

A year ago, I wandered Middle-bury’s campus as an “international” student, partaking in a week long James McMillan orientation for all freshmen born outside the United States. Within those ﬁve days, my network of friends expanded tenfold; from New Delhi to South Africa to the Bahamas, my friends list on Facebook soon circumnavigated the world. A few months ago, I watched as Middlebury’s Quidditch team—yes, broomsticks and all—bludgeoned their way to World Cup victory in Central Park. A few weeks later, I was working a block away from the 843acre park, interning at an environmental consulting ﬁrm. And now, in a few hours, I will board a plane bound for Burlington, Vermont. The 108 words above do not justify the last 365 days of my life; they are too terse—too compressed—to accurately portray the full extent of the last twelve months. But time, when glanced at in the rearview mirror, is always in the left lane, speeding away. The mind seems to possess a knack for making us say, “Wow, how the time ﬂies,” or, “It was just yesterday when Timmy walked into his ﬁrst Kindergarten class—now he’s graduating.” I’m an English major; I won’t attempt to explore the psychological reasons behind this mental illusion. But I will ask a direct question: Why does the past seem so brief? There’s little doubt in my mind that my four-hour layover at O’Hare International Airport will feel far longer than this past year did. Why? Unfortunately, the question—at least for now—must remain rhetorical. See, there’s also the future.
While I return to a relatively diverse and different course load than experienced last year, the campus itself should remain unchanged. On a physical front, Hurricane Irene left Middlebury and the outlying Addison County area unscathed—a statement that cannot be said for the rest of the state. Water emergencies continue to plague many towns throughout much of Vermont. Some 1600 National Guard members remain on duty in six states affected by Hurricane Irene; the bulk of them are in Vermont. In response to the disaster, the college’s football team transformed an early September training day into aiding a local business, Jackson’s on the River, by stacking sandbags in preparation for the cresting of Otter Creek. Other student groups have pledged to lend their hands and time once they arrive on campus, as well. Five months from now, 2011 will sit in the past, relegated to the rearview mirror. As we glance back, what will most of us see in that compressed, stout image? Uprisings in Libya and Egypt? Hurricane Irene? Riots sparked by a British man’s controversial death? Or riots spurned on by a fortieth straight year without a Stanley Cup? No matter our lasting impression of the past year, 2012 will arrive soon and sure enough—and already pre-packaged with a universal element: The International Year of Co-operatives.
Until Christmas, James McMillan

Only a single weekend lies between myself and my second year at Middlebury. Twelve months ago, sophomore year didn’t feel epochs away—it was epochs away. Yet come Monday, September 12th, the academic grind begins once again. This ﬁrst, fall semester, though, English Literatures receives the temporary boot. For the next four months, Intro to Macroeconomics, Psychological Disorders, Chinese Religions, and a screenwriting workshop (along with their accompanying textbooks) will be the exclusive occupants of my backpack and time.

‘Like we never skipped a beat’ After a year’s absence, Cruise-In revs back MIRANDA GATHERCOLE Times Reporter
As promised, the 2011 Langley Good Times Cruise-In returned to the downtown core on Saturday — better than ever. After taking a one-year hiatus in 2010, the directors and volunteers breathed new life into the massive car show. “It’s like we never even took a year off, it was great,” said Cruise-In president Riccardo Sestito. “I had nothing but positive feedback from everyone.” Crowds of nearly 100,000 braced the hot late summer weather on Sept. 10 to admire the 1,200 classic cars registered in the event. “Everything went too smooth, which was kind of scary,” Sestito said. Unlike the mass burnouts and street racing seen in 2009, this year was significantly quieter. A large police presence helped to quell drivers from doing dangerous stunts, which had occurred on the Friday night before the show in 2009. “From a policing perspective, I think it went quite well,” said Langley RCMP Cpl. Holly Marks. She says there were not many major complaints this year. However, tickets were issued. There were 44 violation tickets given out on Saturday, along with many impaired driving tickets throughout the weekend. “Right at the very beginning of the first day on Friday night, three vehicles were impounded for stunting, which I believe sets a tone. So the stunting stopped,” she said. “Once those vehicles were towed away on the back of a pickup, it was clear we aren’t going to tolerate this.” Sestito says the directors are already talking about plans for next year’s show. “The saddest part for me is when four o’clock rolls around. As tired as we are, we always look and say ‘oh jeeze, it’s almost over,’” he said. “Everything went really well so everyone can rest assured we will be back next year.” After months of hard work putting the show together, Sestito says his favourite part this year was just being able to watch the event unfold before him. “I don’t remember too much, I hardly slept. By the end of the day I was clueless as to what was going on,” he joked. “But when the dust settles and Elvis is already starting his first act, I know everything is locked in and rolling strong.Then I can stand there and watch what’s going on.” Sesito says nothing could be possible without support from the car participants, volunteers, directors and the community. “I always get asked why is the show so successful. Well, it’s just the way the community is,” he said.
Crowds pour down the one-way stretch of Fraser Highway, looking at the many classic cars on display. There were 1,200 cars officially registered for the event this year. Frank BUCHOLTZ/ Langley Times

Lighting scheme A Vancouver artist is scouring the province for new artistic lights
Veteran broadcaster Red Robinson and Langley artist Brian Croft are shown with Croft’s latest painting of downtown Vancouver nightlife in the 1950s — a piece titled The Capitol Theatre Granville Street 1956 — which will be officially unveiled on Sept. 16 during the West is Best show at the home of Senator Gerry St. Germain.
Best in the West Senator Gerry St. Germain hosts a show of fine art in support of aboriginal education ALEX BROWNE Black Press
uch well known artists as South Surrey’s Chris MacClure and Brent Heighton, and Langley’s Brian Croft, are among those featured in the second annual The West Is Best Fine Art Show, taking place Sept. 16 through 18 at the ranch of Senator Gerry St. Germain and his wife Margaret (Indian Springs Land and Cattle Company, 19339 8 Ave.). Created by St. Germain and artist Murray Phillips as a showcase for Western Canadian artists, it’s also a fundraiser for aboriginal education through the National Aboriginal Achievement Foundation (NAAF). Last year’s event raised $60,000 and this year’s target is to exceed $100,000. Many of the 16 artists involved — which also include Andrew Kiss and Vance Theoret — are top sellers at the Calgary Stampede Western Art Show. And there’s also a hint of the western, a lot of history — and a nod to a North American legend — in the new work by Croft, The Capitol Theatre Granville Street — 1956, which will be launched at the
opening of the show Friday, Sept. 16, 7-10 p.m. An expert in meticulously detailed, evocative land and cityscapes that re-imagine landmarks of the Lower Mainland as they must have looked in decades past, Croft has depicted the theatre on Dec. 1, 1956, shortly after the western movie Love Me Tender — starring new musical sensation Elvis Presley — opened in Vancouver. To help him launch the new painting, and series of prints, Croft has enlisted veteran broadcaster Red Robinson, who emceed the Dec. 1 shows 55 years ago, to appear at the opening of The West Is Best. “There is absolutely nothing better than having an eye witness to a historical event that one is painting and Red Robinson has been very helpful to me as I tackled this project,” Croft said. The painting and print came about as Croft’s response to demand for more vertical compositions, and is inspired by a large photograph taken at the Capitol on the original date, which now hands in the Red Robinson Show Theatre. “I changed it pretty radically for the painting, Croft said, adding that he painted out some of the crowd for the photograph, and added a lot more carefully-researched detail for the lobby display and the surrounding street scene. Robinson, then the pop DJ fror CJOR, recalled that the Dec. 1 promotions included a “girls only” morning matinee as well as an evening show including a live broadcast from the theatre, plus prizes of records and photos of Elvis.
“The girls screamed all the way through the movie whenever Elvis appeared on the screen,” he remembered. “The movie was an average ‘oater,’ as we called westerns in those days, but it mattered not to the fans.” Croft said he is very pleased to be involved in The West Is Best for a second year. “I think this is going to be a very important show as we move forward; important for the artists and important for the NAAF.” The opening will include an address on the NAAF by program president and CEO Roberta Jamieson. Some 25 per cent of all sales at the show will be donated to support the NAAF, which is the largest provider of scholarships and bursaries to aboriginal youth, other than the federal government. With a mission to “enrich Canada by advancing aboriginal achievement,” the foundation, through its education program, has awarded more than 42.7 million in scholarships and bursaries to more than 11,500 First Nations, Inuit and Metis students nationwide. Other artists contributing to The West Is Best are Steven Allen, Roger Arndt, John Einerssen, Adeline Halvorson, Doug Levitt, Julia Lucich, Greg Metz, Audrey Nanimahoo, Dennis Weber and Wanda Whaley. The music of Fort Langley guitarist John Gilliat will also be featured at the opening. The exhibit is open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. both Sept. 17 and Sept. 18.
Deb Chaney, founder of Illuminate The Artist Within, has launched an illustration competition for B.C. Secondary School art students. Its aim is to increase student awareness of working artists and career opportunities in the arts and to provide an opportunity to have their artwork published. The winners also receive credit at OPUS Art Supplies and attend a two-day painting workshop valued at $350. The Illuminate the Artist Within Illustration Competition is open to all high school students across B.C. A contemporary abstract artist, Chaney’s mission is to playfully and compassionately engage the artist that lives inside each of us, awakening creative potential and realizing that our lives are the masterpiece of our own creation. “When I was in high school I loved art and had a natural affinity to being creative, however I was not encouraged or supported to pursue an “artsy” career and did not realize what was possible,” said Chaney. “It’s my hope that students that are exposed to the contest realize that there are artists out there — like myself — who are making art, being creative, and making a living doing so.” The winning illustrator receives a $150 gift certificate valid at OPUS Framing and Art Supplies — which has a store in Langley — a spot on the featured artist page at http://debchaney.blogspot.com, a two-day painting workshop valued at $350 and, finally, and their work will be featured in some Illuminate the Artist Within products. Student artists are asked to email three of their drawings to itawcontest@gmail. com by Friday, Oct. 15. For ideas on what to draw, and guidelines regarding size and materials, participants can visit debchaney. com and click on “events and news.” The winners will be posted and announced online on Deb’s blog at 7:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 25.

Glorious Russian garlic Old-school silverskin can’t measure up to this sticky red treat
weet, sticky glorious Russian red garlic is easily one of my all time favourite finds at the local farmers’ market. Food for I used to think that garlic was Thought garlic — that they were all the same. ANGIE But that was before I knew better, back in the day when we could only get one kind, I suppose, unless we grew it ourselves. That would have been the old-school silverskin garlic from China and California. That is the garlic, you can find absolutely everywhere, moulding in giant bins at every single supermarket in the country. It is mechanically planted and grown as a commodity crop. And, once you’ve had something else, there is no going back. The Russian red variety is a completely different animal. It actually tastes like garlic. It’s crunchy, juicy and very sticky — the skin can be quite hard to peel but it is worth the effort. The larger sized cloves, with an almost purple, tinge have a very warm, aromatic garlic flavour with a very sweet aftertaste, not like the harsh bitterness you get from long stored silver skins. Because these bad boys are best consumed before they are about six months old they don’t have an opportunity to sprout that bitter green germ that you find inside the cloves of the other varieties.
Reg. $16 and up
WILLOWBROOK SHOPPING CENTRE FR AS E
I digress. At that point it is best to remove the germ remove from the clove before you cook it. You will be able to find the Russian red treasure at most farmers’ markets, some specialized green grocers and farm stands this time of year. Stock up when you find it and store it in a cool dark place. If you’re feeling ambitious, peel a few heads so you’ve got a pile of raw cloves. Transfer them to a small ovenproof dish and cover them with good quality olive oil. Turn them into confit garlic by roasting in the oven at 300 degrees for about an hour an a half. Remove from the oven when the gloves are soft. Store the roasted cloves in the fridge in the oil and use as needed. Use the garlic infused oil to sauté vegetables, make salad dressings or to boost the flavour in just about anything. This is guaranteed to keep the vampires away through most of October.

All garlic naturally has that germ inside but when they are young and fresh, they stay soft and creamy like the rest of the clove but as the garlic ages the germ turns green, grows larger and becomes tough and bitter. Hmmmm . . . sounds like some people I know.

Left: Sharing the bench, watercolour by Marilyn Vooys and, far left, Beaver, by potter Gail Simpson are among the pieces on display at Langley Centennial Museum as part of the exhibit Earth Formed, Water Rendered.
Itâ€™s element-ary Painting and pottery exhibit runs to Dec. 20 at museum
here are pots and paintings aplenty on display at the Langley Centennial Museum. Monday (Sept. 12) marked the official opening of Earth Formed, Water Rendered: Art of the Fraser Valley Watercolour Society and the Fraser Valley Potters Guild. The show, which has been on display since Sept. 2 and continues to Dec. 20, features no fewer than 102 pieces of original artwork by members of the two participating clubs. Among those exhibiting work is Gwen Gregorig. At 92, she is one of the last few founding members â€” the first president, in fact â€” of the Fraser Valley Watercolour Society, which formed in 1989. Gregorig, who first indulged her creative impulses in the theatre, began painting in 1984 â€” relatively late in life, she concedes â€” after her husband passed away. When her teacher moved to Vancouver, Gregorig and her fellow students were at a loss as to they were going to do without her. â€œShe said, â€˜Form a society,â€™â€? recalled the English-born Gregorig, who now calls Abbotsford home. So they did, and dedicated it to â€œthe enrichment of Gwen excellence, mutual support Gregorig and encouragement of its members.â€? Over more than two decades, from 24 original members, the society has grown to include 50 painters, spanning the Valley from Chilliwack to Langley and across the river to Mission. Although the club is still primarily a watercolours-based organization, it has expanded in recent years to include acrylics. â€œGroups have to change, otherwise they stagnate and die,â€? said Gregorig. The society applied to the museum for space to hold a show. And since the potters guild had also done so, museum curator Kobi Christian decided to combine the two, to make the best use of available space. â€œItâ€™s quite a large area to fill,â€? said Gregorig, glancing around the gallery, dotted with glass cases displaying everything from the classics â€” clay vases, plates, mugs and bowls â€” to ceramic frogs and rodents. â€œ(The pairing of the mediums) makes for a good show, and thereâ€™s plenty of room for people to move and see everything,â€? The walls, meanwhile, are bedecked with twodimensional pieces â€” ranging from muted winter landscapes to the vivid red skirts of can can dancers. Most have price tags attached but the pieces are scheduled to be on display until just before Christmas. For those who canâ€™t wait to take their prize home, the display includes a wall of handcrafted mugs which can be purchased and claimed on the spot. The musuem is located at 9135 King St. in Fort Langley. For more, go to langleymuseum.org.

Sharing your special day with family and friends…. Priceless!
I recently had the pleasure of planning my nephew’s destination wedding in the Mayan Riviera. Sharing an entire week with family and friends in celebration of this wonderful event was priceless! Destination weddings are becoming very popular and because of this brides are having to book farther in advance then in past years… Arranging your destination wedding or honeymoon abroad involves a lot of planning, and dealing with a “Wedding Specialist” can take the stress out of making some important decisions such as which resort in the Mayan Riviera would be best for you? Should it be in Mexico, Jamaica, Dominican Republic… Or even on a cruise ship? There are so many wonderful and exciting options available to you. It would be my pleasure to help you plan the wedding of your dreams! Marlin Travel also has a “Honeymoon Registry.” Call us for more details! Give me a call today… and by the way… Congratulations!

The 17-year-old from Langley Secondary — and member of the Langley Mustangs Track and Field Club — will represent Canada at the 2011 Parapan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. Of the 26 member Canadian team, Dolfo is the lone B.C. athlete. The legally blind track and field athlete has qualified to race in the 100m, but is aiming to also compete in the 200m and the long jump events. Dolfo placed third earlier this year at the world championships, but is currently recovering from hip surgery.
B.C. TOPS STATE WARS
Team B.C. overcame an 0-3 start at Cincinnati’s State Wars to win their final three games and capture the gold medal. The roller hockey squad, consisting of Langley’s Aaron Hutchison and Brandon Tham, defeated New York 4-3 in the championship game. The team is made up of players born in 1993. After the poor start, B.C.’s coaching staff felt the underachieving squad needed a spark, so they added Langley’s Kirk French — who has represented Canada multiple times at world roller hockey championships — behind the bench. That sparked the squad, which knocked off Missouri for its first victory of the tournament and then defeated Southern California in the semifinals. Other B.C. teams to medal at the tournament were the 1998 squad, which won silver, and the 1995 and 1997 teams, who each won bronze.
The Langley Rivermen worked overtime this weekend, trading victories with the Wenatchee Wild at the George Preston Recreation Centre. The Wild were in town for a pair of preseason contests, both of which went to overtime. Langley won the opener 3-2 while Wenatchee prevailed 5-4. The Rivermen close the preseason this weekend with a game Friday against the Surrey Eagles at the South Surrey Arena and then Saturday in Burnaby against Simon Fraser University. Langley opens the B.C. Hockey League season on Sept. 23 and the Rivermen have their home opener on Sept. 24 when they host the Surrey Eagles at the Langley Events Centre.

We had some chances late but couldn’t bury them. You have to give credit to their goalie but when you’re shooting the ball right at the keeper it’s hard to score.” For more, visit www. langleytimes.com.

Garrett Peters made the most of his opportunity. Peters played a grand total of two minutes in Saturday night’s men’s soccer match for the Trinity Western Spartans against the visiting Victoria Vikes at Rogers Field. But in that short time, the striker notched the gamewinning goal in a 2-1 victory. Peters headed home a free kick from Spencer Schmidt in the game’s 90th minute. Schmidt had opened the scoring in the 71st minute before Victoria’s Andrew Ravenhill struck for the equalizer seven minutes later. The victory evened Trinity Western’s Canada West record to 1-1-0 as they had lost their opener, 1-0 to the Fraser Valley Cascades the night before. “The good thing about Canada West is you don’t get a lot of time to think about what happened the night before,” said Spartans coach Pat Rohla. “We came out and just decided that we were going after it and we did. “We changed a couple of things structurally and I think everyone was committed to the cause and played hard for each other.” In the match against Fraser Valley, the Cascades’ Craig Robinson struck for the only goal in the 17th minute.

Jackson places second Alison Jackson placed second at the Vancouver Triathlon. Jackson, who competes on the Trinity Western Spartans track and field, cross-country and swimming teams, finished the Olympic distance course in 2:16:17, just 16 seconds behind race winner Alee Sharpe. Jackson was also tops in the women’s 20-24 age group. The race was held last week (Sept.
5) at Stanley Park. Jackson completed the 1,500m swim in 29:07, the 37.6-km bike ride in 1:07:59 and the 10-km run in 39:12. Earlier this summer, Jackson won the Alberta Olympic distance provincial championship which earned her a spot in the 2012 ITU Triathlon Age Group World Championships in Auckland, New Zealand.
After surrendering the game-tying shot as time wound down, the Trinity Western Spartans re-grouped in overtime to defeat the Santa Clara Broncos 108-100. The NCAA Division 1 basketball team, and alma mater of Steve Nash, was at the Langley Events Centre last week (Sept. 6) as part of their preseason Canadian tour. “I was pleasantly surprised with how we played in overtime,” said TWU coach Scott Allen. “We could have gone the other way after that shot.” Calvin Westbrook led Trinity Western with 32 points while Kyle Coston finished with 29 points and 14 rebounds. The Spartans were deadly from beyond the arc in the second half and overtime, hitting eight of their 18 attempts in the final 25 minutes. For more, visit www. langleytimes.com.

Richard Jason Noel Davidson Langhorst “Jason” (of Langley, B.C.)
July 23, 1970 - August 30, 2011 On the morning of August 30th, at Foot Hills Hospital in Calgary, at the age of 41, and with his family by his side Jason left us. An only child, Jason grew up knowing he was especially loved by his mother and father who ensured he also have the chance to earn the love of a huge extended family. He was and will always be a family favourite with his big heart, big laugh, boundless energy, super human strength and big bear hugs. He showed strength, determination, loyalty, generosity, humour and joie de vive and these qualities inspired us all. Jason accomplished so much in his life; he overcame great obstacles, tried his hand at a few careers before becoming a journeyman electrician then going on to cable splicing with BC Hydro. In his valiant battle against a dreadful disease Jason showed us what a strong and courageous person he really was. Jason’s good humour and easy manner enabled him to get along and connect with everyone. Jason was extremely insightful and was known for his ability to provide frank advice and feedback in a disarming helpful manner. Also known for his friendly nature, positive energy and sweetness of character he has earned him a place in the hearts of his many friends and all who know him through school, work and community. Jason felt very fortunate to have met and married the love of his life, Alenna, and to have produced two beautiful daughters with her. Jason was a good person, was respectful of others and demonstrated these characteristics in the way he raised Mary and Jessi. Jason’s greatest pride was his whole large family: watching his children grow, his greatest pleasure. In his last weeks and during a time for reﬂection his dad, Roy said he was a rock star in the hospital as he organized, helped and entertained his roommates. He always had time for a visit and to catch up. Jason was an avid sports enthusiast who enjoyed cheering on his favourite teams and pursuing activities such as running, biking, swimming, surﬁng and snowboarding. In the past few years he became a tri-athlete. Jason is survived by his wife Alenna (née Anuik) and his daughters Mary Margaret (10) and Jessica Jane (6). He is also survived by his adoring parents Susan (née Davidson) and Roy Langhorst, his aunts: Diana(Mark), Gail, Marie (Geoff), Karen(Dave), Brenda (Michael) and his many cousins in BC, Alta, and Sask, his in-laws Elmer and Kay Anuik, brother-in-law Bret (Tina) and his many friends from his childhood in South Surrey, and at school, work and beyond. He is predeceased by grandparents, Margaret and Slim Davidson who loved him unreservedly. “A celebration of Jason’s life will be scheduled in the near future. A notice of Jason’s celebration of life will be published after the details are ﬁnalized. For those who want to be notiﬁed of the date and time of Jason’s celebration of life please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “COL Details”.” Jason will be dearly missed by his family and friends who love and cherish him deeply.
