CRITICS TARGETED

Man who files $15 million suit doesn’t attend court hearing DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter

Aldergrove property owner Robin Scory did not attend the hearing of his $15 million lawsuit against critics of his proposal to dump thousands of truckloads of dirt on his land. The trial proceeded without him Tuesday morning in Chilliwack. One of the lawyers for the people being sued said there was a “flurry of e-mails” over the weekend, in which Scory informed them that he would be unable to attend because he would be busy volunteering with a society that “distributes food to HIVPositive people.” And he would also be in a phone conference for some medical purpose with a doctor in Washington State. Scory made some last-minute written submissions, including a faxed affidavit that arrived at one lawyer’s office at 1:33 a.m. the morning of the trial, the judge was told. Justice Catherine Bruce ruled that Scory’s written statements would be treated as though he made those arguments in person. The hearing began with Tim Leadem, the lawyer for defendants Glen Valley Watershed Society (GVWS), saying the lawsuit should be thrown out because Scory hasn’t backed up his complaint that some environmental activists conspired to deliberately spread false statements about him. Leadem revealed that when Scory did appear for a pre-trial examination, he claimed that he had been offered $25 a truckload to take soil from work on the Trans-Canada Highway. He was unable to provide proof of a deal, Leadem said. Scory, the owner of a 160-acre parcel of land at 7306 264 St. applied for permits to create a turf farm on 66 acres of the previously undeveloped property by using up to 100,000 truck loads of fill to smooth out the rugged terrain. Opponents, many of them neighbours, complained it could be the largest fill site in Lower Mainland history and mounted a campaign to scuttle the proposal. At a packed Langley Township council meeting in 2010, councillors unanimously voted to ask the Agricultural Land Commission, the body that has the final say over the application, to delay approval until the environmental impact has been

Jack Dewitte had to add two feet to the top of his well to keep it above the soil and gravel that tumbled down the Nathan Creek tributaries into Glen Valley five years ago. The original creek bed was filled and water flowed across farmland before entering the Fraser. He is one of the people named in a lawsuit by Robin Scory, who wants to put 100,000 loads of fill on a 264 Street property. studied further. A few months later, Scory filed a $15 million dollar lawsuit against two individuals and one organization in the B.C. Supreme Court Chilliwack registry. The lawsuit accused Sian Krannitz, Jack Dewitte and the Glen Valley Watershed Society (GVWS) of interfering with Scory’s right to farm and demands $6.5 million each from Krannitz and the GVWS and $2 million from Dewitte. In his written notice of civil claim filed Sept. 1, 2010, Scory accused Krannitz of making “misleading, false, fabricated and unproven statements” to get signatures on a petition opposing the fill and to convince Aldergrove-Fort Langley MLA Rich Coleman to oppose the application. Scory complained that Krannitz and the GVWS “constantly, repeatedly and incessantly” communicated such claims to media outlets including The Times and the Aldergrove Star. And he claimed that Krannitz and the GVWS were endangering the public and violating his rights by using a “low flying aircraft to photograph and monitor Robin

Scory and his farming activities at 7306 264 St.” The portion of the lawsuit dealing with Dewitte, who lives near the proposed fill site, takes issue with his claim about earlier runoff issues.Another farm soil deposit five years ago, similar to the Scory proposal, forced Dewitte to add another two-foot section to the top of his well to stop silt and flood waters from spilling into his drinking water. That was “not physically possible,” Scory said. The Scory allegations have not been proven in court and have been denied by the people named in the lawsuit and the GVWS. In their written application to have the lawsuit thrown out, the lawyers for Krannitz, Dewitte and the GVWS called it an attempt to intimidate them from expressing their opinions “on an issue of social, economic, environmental and political significance in their community” describing it as an “an abuse of the process of this court. The judge reserved decision on the case Tuesday afternoon.

Monday hearing on closed intersection NATASHA JONES Times Reporter

Langley Township council is dedicating a portion of its next public meeting to the closure of the 200 Street/0 Avenue intersection. In March, council sided with 48 people, most of whom live in the new High Point subdivision, who signed a petition demanding the closure of the intersection. As part of the development agreement, 200 Street and 0 Avenue was to become a fully-functioning junction once High Point was finished. The Township decided to keep it closed during construction to prevent heavy vehicles from accessing the building site from 0 Avenue. Local residents, however, say that council and staff should not have been swayed by the petition, especially since High Point is not yet finished. They argue that by preventing 200 Street traffic from traveling unhindered to 0 Avenue, a lot of extra vehicles are being funneled along narrow streets. It has put additional pressure on the intersection of 200 Street and 8 Avenue, which is a fourway stop. The junction remains blocked off with concrete barriers, and is accessible only to walkers, riders and emergency vehicles. Noting the proximity of Campbell Valley Park, the residents say this poses a danger to pedestrians and equestrians. Residents will be able to tell council just what they think about the plan at council’s next meeting, which begins at 7 p.m. on Monday, May 9.

Piotr Majkowski of the NDP spoke to his supporters Monday night at the Steelworkers Hall.

NDP has strong finish FRANK BUCHOLTZ Times Reporter

BCIT IN

ABBOTSFORD?

Despite finishing second, Langley NDP members were very enthused about the results of Monday’s federal election — both nationally and locally. Candidate Piotr Majkowski gained 11,235 votes — the most ever by an NDP candidate in Langley — and the party feels energized to fight another federal election in four years, and a provincial election as soon as September. “We have made an historic achievement here in Langley,” Majkowski told a cheering crowd of supporters on Monday night at the Steelworkers Hall in North Langley. “I knocked on over 4,000 doors, we put out 30,000 leaflets, called 3,000 homes and put on the largest campaign the NDP have ever mounted in Langley,” said Majkowski, a 26-year-old nurse who made health care one of the dominant themes of his campaign. “I’m incredibly happy about this result,” Majkowski said. “Tomorrow, we continue to build on the momentum we’ve created here, so that in the

next election, we will be the winning party in Langley.” Langley federal NDP president Shane Dyson said Majkowski “did a stellar job” as the party’s candidate, and his showing of close to 21 per cent of the vote is “a stunning point for us.” He attributed the gains to steady and positive campaigns by past federal candidates Dean Morrison (2004), Angel Claypool (2006) and Andrew Claxton (2008). All worked to boost the percentage of NDP votes in the riding. Dyson also noted that the campaign attracted a strong team of young, enthusiastic workers, under the leadership of campaign manager Andrew Mercier. “There is a youthquake going on,” he said. Dyson said the party’s strong showing bodes well for the provincial election, which he said could come as soon as September. Both provincial NDP candidates in the 2009 election, Kathleen Stephany in Langley and Gail Chaddock-Costello in Fort LangleyAldergrove, were in attendance at Monday’s event.

Brain Training By Lisa Pearson

Accomplished Learning Centres My child struggles in school. She has homework every night just to keep up because she doesn’t finish her work in class. Her father thinks she’s just lazy. Is she lazy or is there more going on? - Cathy We assess hundreds of struggling students each year and laziness is usually not the real problem. At least 90 percent of them are weak in auditory processing abilities. This means that they do not process speech as efficiently as others their age.They may miss two or more words in every sentence. With that many holes in what they hear, these children do not receive the same instruction as their classmates.They don’t know what to do and so can’t complete their work in class. An assessment will determine if auditory processing deficits are the problem and possible solutions.

Every evening our son practices reading with us but he isn’t improving. Why? - Jim Reading problems are caused by deficits in phonological processing abilities.This means that your son is unable to process the sounds within words efficiently. With the help of special programs like Fast ForWord or PACE this ability can be trained. Until that happens it is likely that he will continue to struggle with reading no matter how much he practices.

Q:

I’ve heard of a study that claims that older people with hearing loss are at greater risk of developing dementia. Can you say more about that? - Mrs. S. Over 18-years the Baltimore Longitudinal Study on Aging followed 639 people who were initially dementia-free and found that as they lost hearing their risk of dementia and Alzheimer’s increased. What does this tell us? Perhaps the same things that cause hearing loss cause dementia. Or is it that as people have problems with hearing they withdraw from the world and don’t keep their brains fit? When we train children and adults in auditory abilities, we find that their reasoning abilities improve, so I think that as hearing deteriorates so does overall brain fitness. This week I post-tested a 10-yearold whose reasoning abilities improved by eight years after only four months of aggressive auditory training. A good brain fitness program should include auditory training.

Lessons from vote

Justice not so simple

T

he federal election results demonstrated three things. One is that this election, despite many predictions to the contrary at its start, energized many voters. Voter turnout was up, and interest was particularly high in the last two weeks of the campaign. The second thing it clearly showed is that most Canadians see national issues from one of two major perspectives — the less government/ lower taxes/law and order perspective of the Conservatives, or the more activist government/expanding programs/’soak the rich’ perspective of the NDP. The Liberals, in trying to strike a balance between the two perspectives, pleased neither side and have become much less relevant in the national debate, as witnessed by their poor third-place showing. They will be less of a force in the next Parliament and leader Michael Ignatieff is finished. He lost his seat and has resigned. The third and most positive thing is the rejection of the Bloc Quebecois by the vast majority of Quebeckers, relegating the party to four seats. For the first time since 1988, most MPs elected in Quebec support their province being part of Canada. This is an enormously positive step forward. Prime Minister Stephen Harper is now in power with a comfortable majority. He pledged on Monday night to work with other parties and govern for all Canadians. That pledge will be tested many times in coming months. He needs to show the 60 per cent of voters who didn’t vote Conservative some respect. NDP leader Jack Layton, who ran a positive and upbeat campaign, is now the leader of the opposition. As such, he speaks with considerably more clout. In articulating his vision of Canada, Layton will have to be more realistic about how the economy works, and how jobs are created. However, his strong emphasis on preserving important social programs like health care and ensuring that average families get decent tax breaks is needed, at a time when many people are struggling. Both Layton and Green Party leader Elizabeth May, who had an historic win in Saanich-Gulf Islands, have called for more respect in Parliament. The people of Canada, from many disparate regions of the country, have spoken. They want Parliament to get down to business, without any unnecessary drama or an election for at least four years.

n the wake of Allan Schoenborn’s recent petition for supervised Starbucks trips and Chimo Pool dips, many have responded with justified anger. Unfortunately, anger over such individual snafus has led us to an oversimplified view of our justice system. “Throw him in the slammer and throw away the key! He should never see the light of day again!” Such seemingly continuous public response to sensational crimes fuels the “lawand-order” agenda: Build more jails, hire more police, impose mandatory sentences and abolish the Youth Criminal Justice Act. We scream these simple answers to address the decay of morality and the lenience of bleeding-heart judges. If we look past anger, however, it’s just not that simple. Longer and harsher sentences do not lower crime rate. Texas has proven this conclusively. It has the highest incarceration rate in the U.S. and has seen no change in its crime rate, which remains the highest of any state in the country with the highest incarceration rate in the world. The surprising thing is that more lenient systems do not raise the crime rate. Finland has proven this conclusively. Post-war Finland methodically reduced its incarceration rate by 75 per cent and its sentence lengths by two-thirds with little effect on crime rate, except for 2006, when Finland’s crime rate was its lowest ever. The “lenient” system saved Finland $200 million over 20 years without raising its crime rate. Can’t our politicians stand back from the rhetorical lynch mob long enough to consider how countries such as Finland have achieved some success with their justice systems? We scream for harsher punishments, yet Canada jails more youth than does the U.S. We decry our lenient judges, yet a murderer in Canada spends more time in jail than does a murderer in the U.S. “Throw ’em in the slammer” is a tempting mantra. As a policy, it doesn’t work. —Tri-City News The Langley Times is a member of the British Columbia Press Council, a self-regulatory body governing the province’s newspaper industry.

Mayor must be part of budget decisions Editor: The article, “Bateman accuses Green of being a ‘passenger.’” (The Times, April 20) raises concerns that Mayor Rick Green has abdicated his responsibility to be actively engaged in the budgeting process that is so important to the taxpayers of the Township of Langley. The Township of Langley, incorporated as a municipality in 1873, is one of the oldest in B.C. A primary reason for incorporating is to provide a responsible local government. The council, which the mayor is part of, is entrusted by the taxpayers to provide

a budget and set the tax rate. The mayor chose to sit this budget out by not contributing any constructive ideas to help reduce taxes. Calling the budget a “staff budget” is a clever way of blaming our hardworking civic employees, whose task is to provide the budget to council for revisions. The budget is a council budget and as such, it is council who provides direction to staff. Simply saying that he “disagrees with the process” is not good enough. We expect the mayor to provide leadership

and contribute to creating a responsible budget. Whether the mayor likes it or not, he entered office in the midst of the five-year Township of Langley financial plan, initiated in 2007. Among other items, the plan allowed for increased public safety by adding police officers and transitioning to fulltime firefighters. These costs are due now. By voting against the budget, the mayor has ignored our need for increased safety. This is no different than any household planning to purchase a car or go on vaca-

tion, without a solution to pay for it. I encourage the men and women who live and work in the Township of Langley to observe what the mayor is doing to our future. He appears to be more interested in gaining votes in November than doing what is right for the Township. Jack Froese, Langley Editor’s note — Mr. Froese has announced that he will seek election as mayor of the Township in November.

Off-leash trails needed in North Langley Editor: I live in Walnut Grove and walk my dog in my neighbourhood, which includes taking him off-leash in the trails in North Langley. I want these trails designated as off-leash areas so I do not have to experience confrontations with Metro Vancouver’s aggressive rangers. I talk to many dog owners every day who also want off-leash trails, so they can take their dogs on walks peacefully and lawfully. Many dog owners frequently complain about the off-leash restrictions and the aggressiveness of Metro Vancouver’s rangers in harassing us dog owners. These regulations are unreasonable and because they are, we will continue to use the trails as off-leash areas. It has been suggested that Aldergrove Lake Park could be designated

as an off-leash trail area, however, it is incredibly unreasonable to expect me to drive over 50 km (25 km each way) to exercise my dog every day of the week, after working and commuting for eight to nine hours. As I said above, many dog owners will continue to use the trails, parks and schools within my neighbourhood, even if these unreasonable bylaws continue to exist. It is important to remember that these trails belong to the residents of the Township and we, the residents, should be determining the regulations for use. We are the voters and taxpayers, and this makes us the most prominent stakeholder. There are probably over 20,000 dog owners in Langley who are being adversely affected by

archaic bylaws and regulations from Langley Township and Metro Vancouver. If all other municipalities can provide off-leash trails to dog owners, there is no reason the same can’t be done for Langley residents. There is always a way to accommodate all groups and create a win-win situation. There is an election coming up in November 2011, and we will be watching and making note of which councillors represent our interests and which ones abstain from representing us, their constituents. Then we will communicate these notations to the many dog groups within Langley, so all of them are apprised of who represented their interests. Jane Whitehead, Langley

May Day a special event in Fort Langley Editor: Spring is a wonderful time of the year, and one of our best events in the Township of Langley is the Fort Langley celebration of May Day, Queen Victoria’s birthday. May Day dates back to the Romans, who gaily paid homage to spring with maypole dancing, parades, fairs and the crowning of a fair young May Queen. Today we carry on the tradition in Fort Langley, but instead of May 1 as the special day, we celebrate on the nearest Monday to May 24 to honour Queen Victoria’s birthday, (at her decree, I believe). Fort Langley May Day began 89 years ago when Alex Houston and his wife hosted the party on their property on the river in front of their home (now the restored Houston House) on Allard Crescent. Since those early days (for at least as long as I can remember), Fort Langley hall and the village have been the centre of the festivities. For many years, the Native Daughters’ Tea was held in the community hall and there, the elections of the May queen and the royal party took place. It was planned two weeks before May Day and was always a lovely white table cloth affair with a special sale of spring plants and baking. The

In the meantime, the elementary schools in the Township were working with special teachers and volunteers to prepare the dancers for ‘dancing around the maypole,’ which is such a part of the traditional May Day. On the big day, the May queen’s breakfast was put on at the hall, with all the local dignitaries, visitors and the royal party in attendance. There was the queen mother, a special community matron, Miss Canada, the May queen, the May queen-elect, the princesses, the flower girls and the page boys. Our emcee played a valuable role. At the same time, in recent years, the public has enjoyed a wonderful pancake breakfast put on by the Fort Langley Lions who also have organized the parade. It has always been exciting, with a large variety of entries and with the parade marshal and other dignitaries in special conveyences. The Lions have always been major players in the Fort Langley scene. After the breakfast, the royal party left the hall and boarded the beautifully-decorated float (done by volunteers, who borrowed a trailer or flat deck truck and created a lovely setting for the May queen and party). With the queen

mother in a special open car, the float joined the traditional May Day parade over to the fairgrounds. There was then a royal procession to the bandstand, accompanied by the RCMP in red serge, for the crowning of the May queen, the speeches, the jolly maypole dancing and games, races, rides and great fun for all. This year, 2011, on May 23 we will be enjoying the 89th May Day in Fort Langley. The tea took place in the Lions Hall on May 1. The breakfast will be in the community hall at 10 a.m. on May 23, catered by the St.George’s Church ladies. The parade will be great, as usual organized by Russ Townsend and the Lions club, assisted by Yanky Blitzstein. The May queen party will be organized by Rachel McIntosh and Olivia MacKenzie, and the dance instructors are working on the maypole dancing. The BIA, the Fort, the museums, the CN station and the village will be involved in special events to make the whole day a memorable one for our families and visitors. Bays Blackhall, Langley

MANY THANKS Editor: We would like to give a special thank you to Janice Uebelhardt of the Village Coffee and Tea Company in Fort Langley for offering, without being asked, to sponsor our Sunday tea exhibit at the Fort Gallery. Through her generosity we have been able to serve a variety of fabulous teas to visiting guests, adding another dimension to the art and tea experience. The continuous support from the local businesses for Fort Gallery, including putting up posters, attending openings and contributing to our annual Blue Plate Special fundraiser, has been greatly appreciated. Fort Langley is a wonderful, supportive community and we are glad to be a part of it. Jo-Ann Sheen and Diana Durrand

DON’T WHINE Editor: On Monday, 61 per cent of Canadians bothered to vote. People on the other side of the world are fighting and dying for the right to vote. It makes me angry that people could not be bothered. For those who did not vote, I hope you realize you have no right to complain about taxes, the economy, the crime rate and the RCMP. You didn’t vote. Roxie Harder, Langley

Plenty of sunshine and lots of free, fun things to do brought more than 800 people out to the 49th Annual Langley Walk. The Walk, organized jointly by the Township and City of Langley on Sunday, started and ended at the George Preston Recreation Centre where a number of activities and events for families, including face painting, hula hoops, entertainment, and games, were offered. “We wanted to give people a whole day of fun, not just the Walk,” said Township recreation programmer Barbara Jeffery. “We hoped the public would come out to enjoy the day with their families.” Organizers were thrilled with the turnout, which was almost double last year’s when the weather was much less cooperative. This year the rain held off, the sun shone, and hundreds of participants enjoyed some exercise and fresh air dur-

ing their five or 10 km tour of the Brookswood neighbourhood. A number of people were recognized for their special participation, including Inta Schorcht, who at age 89 was once again named the Oldest Walker, and Leah Bradshaw and Janene Sellers whose Hawaiian theme earned them Most Creative Walkers. The Butchers had the most family members participating and Pacific Coast Taekwondo was the organization with the most participants. Langley Fundamental Elementary and Middle School were the elementary and high school with the most students walking. A new event introduced this year was a gLee-Off in which Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler, and Glee’s track-suit clad Sue Sylvester (otherwise known as Langley School District Trustee Wendy

First majority government in seven years The Conservatives won 167 seats in Monday’s 41st federal election, giving Canada its first majority government since 2004. Stephen Harper becomes only the third Conservative prime minister to win three elections in a row. The other two were Sir John A. Macdonald and John Diefenbaker. The NDP surged to second place with 102 seats, with 58 of those in Quebec. The Liberals were reduced to third place for the first time in party history, with 34 seats, and the Bloc Quebecois was all but wiped out in Quebec, winning just four seats. Green Party leader Elizabeth May made history by becoming the first Green MP elected in Canada. She won in Saanich-Gulf Islands. At least two Ontario seats will be subject to recounts, as the winning margin in both was less than 100 votes. One seat in Northern Ontario was won by 14 votes, the other in Toronto was won by 26 votes. Both were won by Conservative candidates over Liberal incumbents. Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff and Bloc leader Gilles Duceppe both lost their seats and have resigned the leadership of their parties. In B.C., the Conservatives won 21 seats, the NDP won 12, the Liberals two and May took the sole Green seat. The closest race in B.C. was in Esquimalt-Juan de Fuca, where Randall Garrison of the NDP had 26,198 votes, with Conservative Troy DeSouza getting 25,792 votes — a margin of 406 votes.

“I think all of the candidates deserve to be congratulated.� Poitras and the Green Party celebrated one victory Monday night, when Elizabeth May made history and won the party’s first seat in Parliament. Poitras ended the election with 2,944 votes (5.4 per cent). “I’m excited to see what Elizabeth can do when she goes to Ottawa,� Poitras said. “She will do some great things.� For Poitras, the campaign for the next election has begun. “I’m very pleased with the (Green) result,� said Darnell, who was happy for Poitras’ party and their historic victory. Though the local Liberal results were not what the party would have liked, Darnell is optimistic. “This is not a loss, it’s an opportunity to get together and rebuild the riding to make it better,� she said. Nobbs of the Pirate Party picked up 355 votes. Nationally, his party received 3,198 votes.

Schools feel budget pain DAN FERGUSON Times Reporter

Instead of $4.4 million, the Langley school district will have to cut $5 million from its budget in the next school year. The bad news was delivered Tuesday night (April 26) by secretary-treasurer David Green, who said a closer look at district finances has uncovered the need for another $800,000 to begin paying down the multi-million dollar deficit the district ran up in the 2008-2009 and 2009-2010 school years while also dealing with reduced provincial government funding and higher costs. He said most of the increase was due to a $500,000 to $600,000

error in calculating the budget requirements of the Langley Education Centre that offers high school programs to dropouts. All but $184,000 of the extra amount has been found, Green told trustees, noting the remaining savings must be identified before the final budget for the next school year is approved. Trustees voted unanimously to approve a preliminary budget plan that will cut $2.8 of the $5 million by making multiple share-the-pain cuts to all schools and by trimming funding for the remedial Reading Recovery program. The rest of the $5 million will come from cutting administration costs and increasing revenue from renting out school facilities.

As well, schools will be expected to contribute left-over money from previous school years toward paying down the deficit and there will be $97,000 less for school supplies. Trustee Rob McFarlane said he was “extremely concerned” about the proposed reduction in funding for remedial reading, warning that will mean higher costs down the road. Trustee Rod Ross said it was either make the cuts or close schools, a remark that led Trustee Stacey Cody to reveal that school closures were discussed and discarded by trustees who have “no appetite” for closures -- for now. Trustee Cecelia Reekie was absent for family reasons.

people with disabilities with assisting devices. With a cash bar, door prizes, and a live and silent auction the event will be an exciting sightless experience.

Food scraps can help Why should you compost your food scraps? Because leftovers that end up in the dump create greenhouse gases. This, according to Metro Vancouver, is what’s happening. Greenhouse gases act like a giant blanket that surrounds the planet, trapping some of the sun’s energy. When we burn fossil fuels like gas and oil, we are releasing carbon dioxide. As plants grow, they absorb carbon dioxide from the air. When plants die they release that carbon dioxide back into the atmosphere. However, if plants get buried and decompose without oxygen, instead of creating carbon dioxide, they create methane

which is about 20 times more potent than carbon dioxide when it comes to absorbing the heat bouncing off the Earth’s surface. Two-thirds of the methane produced in Metro Vancouver is from food and plant material rotting in the dump, prompting Metro Vancouver municipalities to have a program in place to collect all food scraps by 2015. Food scraps are taken to facilities where composting takes place at a high enough temperature to break down meat, bones, pizza boxes and dairy products.All the food scraps are then returned to the soil in the form of nutrient-rich compost.

A second call in the Peace River region attracted about 5,000 participants. The regional telephone conference calls are to continue in the next two weeks, calling listed home phones in each region for an hour-long question and answer session on the tax, and what happens if voters reject it in a mail-in ballot in June.

In between hockey games over the next week, folks having dinner will be getting calls with a recorded message inviting them to tell him what he should do with the HST. Falcon admitted to some trepidation before extending such an offer to the general public.

Members of the Social Justice Club at Langley Secondary have been busy all week with a Five Days For Thirst project. They are raising awareness of the need for fresh water, and trying to raise $5,000 for a clean water system in an Indian village.

Water is a basic human right, but in the western world, that fact is often forgotten due to easy access and wastage. In an effort to inform the student population of Langley Secondary School and to help a village in India gain access to safe drinking water, Desiree Wallace and the school’s Social Justice Club put on the Five Days for Thirst, which will end this Thursday with the Walk for Water. During each of the five days, the club hosts an event over the lunch period, meant to get LSS students’ attention about issues to do with contaminated water and to get them involved. “We’re trying to spread the message as humbly and as loudly as we can,” said Wallace. The club has set out to raise $5,000 for Free the Children, a non-governmental organization involving children helping other children by teaching them about the developing world. Together with Free the Children, they will use the money to provide a village in India with a clean water

sanitation system. To raise funds, the club is selling water bottles for $10 during the lunch. “A big part of it is trying to raise the money, but it’s also to raise awareness,“ said Megan Shergool, a Grade 12 student and club member. In the developing world, seven people will die each minute from the diseases in contaminated water. “We’re just trying to build awareness,” said Wallace. The club, which was formed in February of this year, is a group of Grade 9 to 12 students hoping to abolish apathy in their school. The group planned the week of events around team work and group-oriented activities. Monday, May 2 was the Web Race, where teams had to climb through an intricate web-like structure, and the two teams, each with seven students, had to make their way through the spaces in the web in one minute without touching the web in any way. After completing the one minute task, the second team was victorious with five people through the maze, while the other team

had four people through. The competition tested their strategy skills, but also demonstrated to students what a minute means in the developing world. On Thursday, May 5, the Walk for Water will take place at the school, when students will make a 12 lap walk around the track, each carrying two fourlitre milk jugs filled with river water. This symbolizes the walk that men and women make every day in the attempt to get clean water. The club will also be holding an art auction on Thursday,at Timms Community Centre in Langley City, from 6 p.m. until 9 p.m. Local artists will be featured and will be donating 80 per cent of their profits to the water project. On Saturday, May 7, the club members will be at Ten Thousand Villages in Langley City selling their water bottles. On that day, 10 per cent of the store’s daily profit will be donated to the project. To donate to the club’s cause or for more information contact Mr. Carlyle at mcarlyle@sd35. bc.ca.

Joy Richardson honoured FRANK BUCHOLTZ Times Reporter

Politicians past and present, horse enthusiasts and friends and family gathered on Sunday to pay tribute to Joy Richardson. The longtime horse lover has been a fierce advocate for the equestrian industry in Langley for many years, and more pointedly she has pushed for trails, equestrian facilities and her

favourite project, the Spirit of the Horse memorial garden at Campbell Valley Regional Park. The memorial garden is a place where horse lovers can place plaques commemorating the lives of their equine friends, and contemplate all the good times they enjoyed with their horses. It was a project that Richardson started, and for many years was under the sponsorship of Langley Horse

Frank BUCHOLTZ/Langley Times

Joy Richardson listens Sunday as speakers pay tribute to her tenacity in lobbying for equestrian issues in Langley.

INJURED

Federation. She was a driving force in organizing and paying for its maintenance. But Richardson has had a very full life beyond that. Born in England in 1925, she was first sitting on a horse at the age of six months. During the Second World War, she was one of a battery of assistants to Prime Minister Winston Churchill. In 1957, she first came to Canada, and in 1969 she arrived in Langley to operate Heritage Stables in Aldergrove. She returned to England for a short time with her beloved horses Hyline Paladin and Hyline Gentry, and enjoyed fox hunting with Prince Charles, among others. However, the pull of Canada remained strong and she came back to live on a horse property near Campbell Valley Park. She recently sold her property and has retired to White Rock. Over the years, she has lobbied many politicians on behalf of the horse garden and other equestrian issues. Among those on hand to pay tribute to her were Langley MLA Mary Polak, Township Mayor Rick Green and Councillors Bev Dornan, Steve Ferguson, Kim Richter and Mel Kositsky, former Township mayor John Scholtens and councillors Karen Kersey and May Barnard, City Councillor and Metro Vancouver parks committee chair Gayle Martin and former City councillor Terry Smith. All funds raised from the event at Langley Golf Centre will go to Pacific Parklands Foundation for maintenance of the Spirit of the Horse garden. Martin, Kositsky and PPF director Rick Hankin also presented Richardson with a plaque which will be mounted at the garden, while Green gave her a certificate of appreciation from Township council.

May is Multiple Sclerosis (MS) Awareness Month. MS received a lot of press in 2010 with the introduction of the controversial “liberation” treatment introduced by a doctor in Italy. Last year also saw the release in the U.S. of the first oral drug for MS (fingolimod). This would be much more convenient than injectable therapies and it is hoped to be OK’d in Canada this year.

Sometimes, you are required to split a tablet in half to take the right dose. There are many ways to do this but the best way is to use a “pill splitter”. These are available in all pharmacies. Some tablets are scored so they can be split by pushing on each end at the same time. This works too. But avoid using knives or scissors. These don’t do a good job and you could cut yourself in the process. Up to 1 in 100 people have celiac disease, a digestive disease that damages the small intestine and interferes with absorption of nutrients from food.

From her tenacity and inventiveness in securing funding for the centre,to her caring approach to the people who gather there, Birnie had what it took to lead the centre effectively for three decades, the speakers agreed. “I can’t imagine, in today’s world, one person in one job and doing so much for 30 years. (Sharon) improved the quality of life for Langley’s seniors,” said Township Mayor Rick Green. Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender complimented Birnie’s perseverance and inventiveness. “She’s worked tirelessly for seniors and done it through all kinds of challenging times — specifically the fire. To watch Sharon and her team continue to find ways to meet the needs of the seniors was inspiring,” he said. “She’s been tenacious, to say the least, and that’s a good thing,” Fassbender said, before handing her a large gift bag, which he

Signal for arboretum discussed BRENDA ANDERSON Times Reporter

Visitors to the Derek Doubleday Arboretum should be able to come and go as they please. At least that’s the plan at the Township of Langley. And they’ve approached Langley City to help make it happen — eventually. On April 18, City staff presented council with a series of recommendations related to the traffic signal being installed at Fraser Highway and Old Yale Road, as part of the new Nicomekl River bridge construction. When the signal becomes operational this spring, it will control traffic in both directions along Fraser Highway at Old Yale Road, where the two routes meet, at the east end of the bridge. Currently, the intersection is configured as a T, but the Township’s plans for the arboretum include some day opening an existing laneway to the north of Fraser Highway as an entrance to an 80-vehicle parking lot, initially with right-in and right-out access only.

“Traffic would have to be restricted to right-in, right-out, until the Township paid for the traffic signal head to control traffic coming out of the arboretum,” said City engineer Gary Vlieg. Even though the design likely won’t come into play for several years, City staff asked council to approve a request from the Township that the City include provision for traffic at the light to turn in and out of the park in any direction or cross Fraser Highway into the arboretum from Old Yale Road. Groundwork has already been laid in anticipation of a four-way signal, so the new road would not need to be torn up, Vlieg told council. But Councillor Jack Arnold saw only trouble in waiting to configure the full access signal. “There’s no such thing as right in and out only, unless it’s made physically impossible,” said Arnold. “People will make illegal lefts in and out of the arboretum. Have you calculated the number of accidents that will occur? “The lights should be done now.” Most of council disagreed, however,

supporting an amendment proposed by Councillor Dave Hall, to strike the first staff recommendation that it support the request to provide a full movement access to the arboretum at the intersection. However, the access to the arboretum can go ahead, at the Township’s cost. When the changes are made, which could be years down the road, the Township will bear the costs of modifying the intersection and signals, council ruled. Some council members also questioned whether the additional traffic triggering a north-south green light has the potential to cause further back-ups along an already-congested Fraser Highway. A traffic analysis indicates the road has “more than sufficient capacity” to accommodate the traffic coming and going from the arboretum, Vlieg said. The new traffic light would be designed to operate in co-ordination with the next closest light at Fraser Highway and the Langley Bypass, with the bulk of the green time given to Fraser Highway and very little to northsouth traffic, he explained.

Dr. Jantzi

Janice McTaggert, a 15-year employee, thanked Birnie on behalf of the staff, for being a fair boss and fostering an atmosphere where creativity and out-of-thebox thinking were encouraged. Marvyn Shore, a senior who has been involved with the centre for the past 20 years, called Birnie,“my idol and a tremendous inspiration. “She had this marvelous dream and it became a refuge for so many people, and we are so thankful.” Barb Stack, who worked with Birnie for 20 years and has now taken over as executive director, recalled her predecessor as a boss who wasn’t afraid to roll up her

sleeves and pitch in — whether washing dishes or scrubbing floors — when the need presented itself. Birnie built strong relationships in the community and had a gift for articulating the needs of the society, Stack continued. “Sharon’s passion and vision will always be with me as I lead the society into the future.” Following her remarks, Stack announced the auditorium, rebuilt after fire ripped through the centre in 2008, has been renamed in Birnie’s honour — a tribute which left Birnie “gobsmacked.” During the 30 years she spent at the centre, Birnie confessed, she was always more comfortable taking a low-key approach. “Chairs on a stage are not my thing,

Springflea

believe me,” she laughed. “I’m proud of my role in (the centre’s) development, but I’ve always known it’s a team effort,” she said. After acknowledging the support of her family (including her husband and grandchildren seated in the front row) Birnie paid special tribute to Tom Douglas and Lyle Brock — both men were board members and pioneers in the Seniors Resource Centre’s history. It was through the men’s faith in her that Birnie developed the qualities she needed to be an advocate for Langley’s seniors, she told the crowd. “From those two men I learned the most important skills — respect, kindness, genuine caring and hard-nosed courage.”

he Langley School District Foundation was established with a mission to make learning UNFORGETTABLE for every Langley student. The mandate is to support and provide programs for Langley students that would not be funded by the Ministry of Education and the goal is to ensure that every student receives the maximum benefit of the education to which they are entitled. To live up to its goals and mission, the Foundation raises funds in various ways – through grant proposals, community partnerships and special events. Two signature events are organized and held each year – the Heart to Heart Grand Prix Gala and the Golf Tournament.

“The Ins and Outs of the HST”

Why? Because there is a moment in every child’s life when a door opens and lets the future in and Kurzweil 3000 has opened the door for hundreds of students, allowing them to read, write and interpret when they never could before. The smile on a child’s face when they suddenly “get it” lights up a room! 6th Annual Golf Tournament Talk to anyone who played sports in school and they will usually wax poetic about the experience, using phrases such as “life-changing”, “life-long friendships”, “bonding”, “it’s what kept me in school”, “most memorable of my school days”. So when the Foundation heard that school sports programs were in need of funds they decided that all proceeds from the golf tournament would go towards the support of sports programs in middle and secondary schools. The tournament is on Wednesday, August 31 at Redwoods Golf Course.

People often wonder what criteria makes for a strong or a weak economy. What are the factors that drive employment levels, income levels, taxation levels, and as a result disposable income levels? Well, it actually isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all that complicated, you do not have to look much further than your own household for the answer. It starts by the simple notion of â&#x20AC;&#x153;producing more than you consumeâ&#x20AC;?, and living within your current realm of productivity with a realistic view on your future production capabilities. I know this sounds obvious and even simplistic, but although most individuals understand it, many of us do not follow our own wisdom. This simple fact is not just true for individuals, but is also true for businesses, municipalities and countries. Businesses are the single most influential factor in driving our economies; this is true for the economies of individuals, businesses, regions and countries. Local businesses drive local economies, national and international businesses drive local, provincial and national economies. Business provides the vehicle that gives us all the chance to produce more than we consume, it is only through the operation of business that excess gets produced, the more vibrant the businesses of our regions and country, the more excess we can obtain. Now excess is not a dirty word, it is not self-serving in and of itself, and its value at the most evolved level is that it gives us choices.The true test of our maturity and value as human beings

Daily and Early Bird Specials

Fresh Authentic Greek Dishes

is what we do with those choices. We can choose selfishly, or we can choose socially and responsibly. We choose individually each day; we choose whether to take a vacation or stay a home, to by a new car or to take the bus, or to get some new cloths or to mend the old ones. We choose as a mass through elections, referendums and protests on social issues like healthcare, education, public services and taxation. The point I am trying to make here is that business is the mechanism that individuals and societies use to create choice. Without choice we have no control over our lives or our futures, not only does our quality of life decline, but our basic human needs are put at risk. More importantly, we lose any chance to help and enhance the life of others, those that are less fortunate and those that are in need. The Chambers of Commerce is here to support business across the country, to create an environment that encourages the success and growth of our businesses and our economy. It is the business communities of the nation that build the economies that give us choices; it is the businesses, individuals, governments and society as a whole that exercise those choices. It is all of our responsibility to make those choices wisely. Milt Kruger, President Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce

f you find yourself knee-deep in water, Basement Systems Vancouver can help. West Coast weather can wreak havoc on foundations and finding the source of a water leak isn’t always easy. “It’s not a light project for the weekend do-it-yourselfer to take on,” says Rob Currie, owner. “This type of job requires a professional’s knowledge and experience.” No longer just a space to store camping equipment and house your furnace, today’s basements are likely to be furnished family rooms or costly rental units. Even a small leak can destroy carpets and ruin walls and furniture. The factory trained, certified waterproofing professionals at Basement Systems Vancouver will quickly assess any situation and provide a sensible, thorough solution. “Peace of mind is of the utmost importance to a homeowner,” says Currie. “We fix wet basements, damp crawl spaces and leaky foundations permanently. We guarantee 100 per cent customer satisfaction, plus offer a long

term transferable warranty.” Sump pump installation and dehumidifier solutions? Basement Systems Vancouver can help with those, too. “You’re in good hands with Basement Systems Vancouver,” says Currie. “We’re proud members of Shell Busey’s House Smart Referral Network, Greater Vancouver Home Builder’s Association and a BBB Member with an A+ rating.” A company’s reputation relies on positive feedback from its customers. “Efficient,” “speedy, courteous service” and “competent,” are some of the words repeated in client testimonials Basement Systems Vancouver has collected over the years.

When is a Bathroom not a Bathroom…? Have you ever wondered where the powder room got its’ name? Most of us would say it comes from the expression “I have to go powder my nose”. This of course was a polite excuse that most women of a generation ago used as they made their way to the small bathroom on the main floor to handle the “call of nature”. However the truth is that the powder room originated in the 18th century and was used by both men and women to re-fresh the white powder applied to their wigs. It was as small as a closet and used exclusively for this purpose. The term stuck and is used today to describe the half bathroom (sink and toilet) commonly used as a guest bathroom on the main floor of all modern homes. It is typically the smallest room in the home and Smith & Millar’s design team has seen it

grow in popularity in recent years. Smith & Millar Interior Design & Contracting Ltd. has often remodelled the powder room for their clients as a showpiece through the use of vivid colour, exquisite mirrors, chandeliers, wooden floor, interesting sinks and unique plumbing fixtures. Powder rooms can be the biggest style accessory that your home boasts. Smith & Millar believes that the addition of a powder room to a home that doesn’t have one can greatly increase the homes’ resale value. By introducing ergonomically efficient toilets powder rooms are also able to be ecologically friendly. Visit the Smith & Millar website www.smithmillar.ca to find out how our team might be able to assist you with converting your powder room into a unique guest experience, your bathrooms into spa-like centers of relaxation or your home interior into a masterpiece that reflects a style all your own.

Girls’ night Garrett JAMES/Langley Times

Langley Has Talent winner Tiffany Desrosiers sings the Leonard Cohen classic Hallelujah on Saturday night. Desrosiers took home $2,500 in cash and studio time at Blue Frog Studios and Shaw Cable.

A trio of female singers prevails at the first Langley Has Talent competition finale, held Saturday night at CLA BRENDA ANDERSON Times Reporter

T

he judges have spoken, and three young female singers have emerged victorious, as the first annual Langley Has Talent contest wrapped up on Saturday night at Christian Life Assembly. Tiffany Desrosiers took top spot in the contest — along with a $2,500 cash prize — for her rendition of the Leonard Cohen classic Hallelujah in a night that included a wide mixture of song and dance styles, as well as covers of some old favourites and a few original tunes. Pianist and singer Sarah Tummon took second place with her performance of Norah Jones’ Don’t Know Why and Fernridge resident Britt Bonshor played guitar and sang her way into the third spot with an original song, titled Breaking Free. Tummon and Bonshor each received a $250 prize. The top 15 acts, chosen from 29 semifinalists who performed on April 16, took the stage once again at CLA on April 30 to compete for $3,000 in cash and a trio of industry prize packages. In addition to highlighting local musical

talent, the contest — hosted by JRfm’s Bob Saye and presented by Langley’s four Rotary Clubs — served to raise funds for, and awareness of the need for a dedicated performing arts centre in Langley. Following Desrosiers performance, judge Susan Jacks told the singer that she’d surprised the seasoned recording artist. “When you started, I didn’t know if you could handle it, but by the end, you blew me away. You’ve got a great set of pipes,” said Jacks. Lissa Lloyd, owner of Lloyd Talent who also judged the semifinals, praised the singer’s “clear and passionate” performance and “smokey” voice. “There was a tremendous layer of passion that I looked for last time, and it really came through tonight,” she said. The night’s third judge, Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, echoed Lloyd’s sentiment. “You had a breathy style to start out, but as you built up, you really brought out the passion in the song,” he told the singer. Hearing her name called out in the top spot at the end of the night came as a complete surprise, said Desrosiers “It was a wonderful feeling, and it could not have come at a better time,” she said.

“They say it’s a hard industry, but until you’ve tried it for yourself (you don’t know). It can be very discouraging, and this (win) was a bump in the right direction.” The 24-year-old singer has had Hallelujah in her repertoire for the past five years, and knew it was a strong choice for the final show. Two weeks earlier, during semifinal competition, she took a bit more of a risk and sang a relatively new song — Adele’s Someone Like You. “I was looking for a newer cover to do, and a couple of people mentioned they thought it would suit my voice,” she said of her choice of song for the semis. As the first place winner, Desrosiers had her choice of three prize packages. She selected one that includes studio time at both Blue Frog Studios and Shaw Cable. Although she opted to sing covers for both performances, Desrosiers does write her own music as well, she said. Currently, she is trying to get her independent solo CD some radio airplay and expects the package she selected will help her to produce more new songs and to get her name and her music out to a wider audience. Her new single High, can be heard on

her website at tiffanydesrosiers.com. Although she’s been performing for 15 years, Desrosiers admitted she still gets butterflies before stepping on stage. “I can tame it more now,” she said. “I do stretches to release the (nervous) energy.” “I was so impressed by all the other acts. I thought everyone brought something really special,” said Desrosiers. “And I would like to thank all of the judges, volunteers, organizers, and the Rotary Clubs of Langley for sponsoring the event and for all their hard work.” For 18-year-old Tummon, the competition offered an opportunity to perform in public. “It just really boosted my confidence,” said the Grade 12 music major at Langley Fine Arts School. After singing Sarah McLachlan’s Angel in the semifinal round (the same song she’d performed at her aunt’s funeral a year earlier) Tummon turned to another female singer-songwriter for her finals entry — Norah Jones’ Don’t Know Why — for her second place finish. “The music really spoke to me. It’s so beautiful, and so is the imagery.” continued, PAGE 32

Contest a stepping stone - Pritchett from PAGE 31

Although she’s been playing since she was six, Tummon described herself as “a closet singer” until she was 13 or 14. “I was always a little bit shy,” she explained. Nineteen-year-old Bonshor, meanwhile, began playing guitar at 15 in order to accompany herself at open mic nights, explained the singer-songwriter. Like her song Seven which she performed for the contest semifinal’s, Bonshor’s third-place winning song Breaking Free is an original piece, written about her own life experiences — specifically

a night she was grounded by her dad when she wanted to go to a swing dance. “It was snowing, but I snuck out in my dancing shoes,” said Bonshor. The teenager made her way across a snowy paddock and to a nearby convenience store where her friend was waiting. “When (my dad) saw my footprints in the snow the next morning, he was more impressed than mad,” she laughed. In addition to the contestants’ performances, the audience was treated to a short comedy act by Cliff Prang during intermission and a two-song acoustic set from country star Aaron Pritchett following the

competition, while the judges made their selections. The singer, who makes his home in Aldergrove when he’s not on the road, told the crowd about his own involvement with talent contests, and how winning Project Discovery in 2001 helped to kick start his career. Far from being an end in itself, cautioned Pritchett, the competition is “a stepping stone to get them to that next level. “It’s about what you do after winning the contest.” The Langley Has Talent final competition will air on Shaw television on May 21 at 4 p.m. and again on May 29 at 2 p.m.

FVG&SS launches Gondoliers BRENDA ANDERSON Times Reporter

A cast filled with talented singers performing beautiful music. That is how Langley’s Jackie Block describes the latest offering from the Fraser Valley Gilbert and Sullivan Society. Next week, Block and the rest of the ensemble will take the stage at the Surrey Arts Centre as Fraser Valley G&S Society enters its 29th season with a production of The Gondoliers. The popular Savoy opera tells the story of a pair of men who were mixed up as infants by a drunken gondolier. One is the gondolier’s son; the other happens to be a prince — it’s just not clear who’s who. And that creates a whole new set of complications when a young queen shows up to marry the young royal. In her first outing with the theatre group, Block has taken on the role of Vittoria, which in this case is a melding of two characters — contadinas Vittoria and Fiametta. Though it’s a small role, Block describes her character as “very sexy. She has a lot of attitude — a very sensual person. “She knows what she wants and she goes after it.” Block, who has called Langley

Langley singer reaching for top spot in Much Music Coca Cola Covers contest

Kid'n Around Children's Centre

BRENDA ANDERSON Times Reporter

submitted photo

Langley singer Shylo Sharity has made it to the top 10 in the Much Music Coca Cola Covers contest, singing Metric’s Gimme Sympathy. She’s looking for support from the public to help her get into the top 3, which would earn the performer a trip to Toronto and the MMVAs on June 19, where the contest winner will be announced.

A young Langley singer, is looking for a bit of ‘sympathy’ and — more importantly — some support, in her bid to become the top cover artist in a national contest that has musicians putting their own spin on popular songs. Shylo Sharity has been selected as a top 10 semifinalist from more than 1,000 entries into the Much Music Coca Cola Covers contest. The 22-year-old, who is already a veteran performer in the Lower Mainland, stumbled across the contest online and decided to take a shot. The public is asked to rate and/or “like” their favourite artist, whose videos are posted on the site. Voting for this round closes on May 15. Of the six songs offered as options — including selections from Rhianna, Ke$ha and Taio Cruz — Sharity chose to cover Gimme Sympathy by Metric. Although she’s a fan of the band, this particular song was unfamiliar to her. “I’d never heard it, but I felt like I could do a good job with it — it suited my voice best,” she said. For her own rendition, Sharity wanted to make the song more “colourful.” “I wanted to give it more flavour, more up and down, to be able to show my vocal abilities,” she said. “I like the challenge of taking someone else’s song and making it my own song.” And she’ll have three more opportunities to do just that. For the next round, Sharity and her fellow top 10 finalists — including two others from B.C. — will submit three more covers for people to vote on. Sharity will sing What the Hell, by Avril Lavigne, Airplanes by B.o.B. and When the Night Feels My Song, by Bedouin Soundclash The top three performers will be invited to Toronto to attend the MMVAs on June 19 as VIPs. That same night, the contest winner will be announced. Sharity has checked out her competition and discovered some “amazing” talent among them. Currently, she has the second highest number of votes. “It’s such an honour to be in the top 10,” she said. Sharity, who writes her own music and most recently won the Variety’s Got Talent contest, is getting set to hit the stage at the Merritt Mountain Music Festival in July. To check out the top 10 contestants in the Much Music contest and “like” your favourite artist, go to http://covers.muchmusic.com/

LCMS hosts community day, open house Langley Community Music School (LCMS) is hosting its annual Community Day Celebration and Open House on Saturday, May 7, from noon to 2 p.m.This year, as part of festivities, LCMS is offering a free children’s concert to the community. The concert starts at 12 p.m., and will feature West Coast Chamber Music in a presentation of Prokofiev’s Peter and the Wolf. “We open our doors each spring to the community,” said Susan Magnusson, LCMS principal. “This is a time to celebrate music with the community, and this year we are very proud to be offering this free children’s

concert. The open house will also be a great opportunity for people who don’t know much about us to meet our faculty, and learn about the many programs we offer. “We are grateful for the support we receive from the province of B.C., as well as from our corporate and private donors, without whom we would not be able to offer an event like this. ” The West Coast Chamber Music concert features multi-instrumentalist Ross Curran, pianist Alan Crane, and narrator Holly Duff (all members of LCMS faculty). They are joined by artist Angela Brown, who uses dance, mime and pantomime

to animate all the characters of the story with colourful body puppets, bringing to life this classic story. Admission is free. Tickets are available at 604-534-2848. In addition to the concert, there will be an opportunity to meet teachers, learn about programs and classes, and tour the facility.

Cupcakes for the Royal Wedding ASHLEIGH BEAUDOIN Times Reporter

After 52.3 million people stayed up into the night and early morning on Friday to witness Prince William marry Kate Middleton, everyone needed a bit of a sugar rush. The women at Scoop-N-Save, a Langley City cake decorating supply store, were ready for their sleep-deprived customers with free cupcakes. All decked out in their Royal Wedding best, the women had a slow start, which they said was due to everyone staying up so late to watch the wedding. Shirley Byron, who sported a queenly hat for the occasion, said everyone needed to catch up on their sleep. Once things got going, everybody was having fun helping customers and giving out the free treats with a smile. On a typical day at Scoop-N-Save they

offer baking and cake decorating supplies, so the offering of cupcakes was a change of pace for employees and customers. Though Byron didn’t get to watch the wedding — she

was busy decorating cupcakes — she was enthusiastic about the wedding and loved dressing up, acting as royalty for a day. “Everyone needs a Queen Mum,” said Byron. The role was

filled by Betty Gilbert, who wore a tiara while she offered the customers raspberryvanilla cupcakes. Each employee had a role to play in the celebration of the Royal Wedding.

At {LUCY} you can be sure to find contemporary clothing that is of the highest quality.

Opening three and a half years ago, {LUCY} Clothing is the creation of Forever Yours Lingerie’s owner, Sonya - Perkins, and came out of her frustration at the limited plus size clothing options here in Canada. She would purchase most of her wardrobe in the United States in places like L.A., Las Vegas and New York. After countless clients continually complimented her outfits and asked where they could get clothing like hers, Perkins decided to start a side project to get fun and modern plus size fashions available for Canadian women as well. And so {LUCY} was born.

Peter Ash honoured ASHLEIGH BEAUDOIN Times Reporter

Langley resident and philanthropist Peter Ash was honoured Wednesday, April 20 at the B.C. Achievement awards in Victoria. The eighth annual B.C. achievement awards honoured 36 British Columbians for their contributions to society. Recipients were chosen for their commitments to people and a strong passion for helping their community. Ash is known for his work with the homeless, working with the Canuck Place hospice in Abbotsford, the Gateway of Hope in Langley and for his work with womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shelters in the Downtown Eastside of Vancouver. Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender sat on the selection committee with five others. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done a lot, given a lot through his company,â&#x20AC;? he said. Ash not only gives to the community himself, but he inspires his employees to do the same. Ash and the other 35 winners were selected out of 128 other nominees, but his actions and achievements were what made him stand out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He sets a really good example,â&#x20AC;? Fassbender said. In 2008, Ash founded Under the Same Sun, a nongovernmental organization that works to advocate albino rights in Tanzania. Ash, who is albino, focuses on aiding people with albinism to end the prejudice against them in Tanzania, and to educate the community there about the realities of albinism. Under his NGO the first convictions for crimes against albinos have been achieved. He is now attempting to gain access to the United Nations to raise awareness about his work in Tanzania.

Tennis, anyone? Gary AHUJA/Langley Times

Nelly Matiation, left, and Mariane Mueller, of Langley Tennis World stand inside the building which will house four indoor tennis courts. The facility will open this month with Matiation as the head coach/program director. Mueller is the owner/club director.

A new four-court indoor tennis facility is set to open in Langley Township, offering recreation and instruction GARY AHUJA Times Sports

As a young child, Nelly Matiation would go to the local tennis club in her native Czech Republic with her father. While he played his match, she would be off in a corner, racket in her hand, pounding a tennis ball against the wall. Eventually, she drew lines on the clay floor with her foot, so she could see whether her shot was in or not, as she played against an imaginary opponent. “The racket was basically bigger than I was, but I was figuring out how to hit the ball,” she said. “I fell in love with that. “ It was these early childhood memories which drew Matiation to the game. Soon after that, her dad enrolled her in a local club, and she spent weekends playing in tournaments, progressing to the point where she began competing in junior tournaments in Europe, on both the ITF and European Tennis Association tours. By the time she was a young teen, she was playing on some of the smaller World Tennis Association Futures events. And at age 16, she was ranked in the top 20 in singles and top 10 in doubles in the Czech Republic. “When I was a kid, my goal was was to be No. 1,” said Matiation, now 26. “(Andre) Agassi was my idol; I had the mullet, I had the jean shorts, with the neon

After that time has elapsed, the temporary structure will come down and they will become outdoor courts, as per the Township’s original plans. Mueller, who will collect the money from the facility over that time frame, sees this as an opportunity to help the game be accessible and affordable. “My goal is for this to be a legacy,” she said. “Tennis is an elite game: most of the private clubs have just a certain number of people.” Langley Tennis World will offer both recreational and instructional opportunities, including traditional court times, progressive classes for kids that start with smaller balls, nets and racquets, and new activities such as cardio tennis exercise classes done to music. “This is not a move for the tentative; she took a huge plunge,” Dickinson said about Mueller. “She has put everything on the line.

A young competitor in the Creating Confidence III tournament demonstrates a tension low sidekick.

ompetitors from across B.C., Alberta, Washington and Oregon — and even one from as far away as Las Vegas — gathered in Langley on Saturday, to participate in the Creating Confidence III taekwondo tournament, hosted by Rahn’s Black Belt Academy. The event, held at Langley Christian School, drew nearly 260 athletes, ranging from beginners, wearing white belts, to the most accomplished high black belts. Competitors as young as four years old took part alongside one participant in his early 60s. The tournament’s special guest, who holds a seventh degree black belt, was senior master Ki-Seung Cho, from Lynwood, Wash. Tournament competitors took, part in “poomsae,” or forms, as well as weapons, sparring, creative weapons, cre-

ative forms, Xtreme weapons, Xtreme forms and combat weapons sparring. “Our sparring was point-contact sparring, versus full-contact sparring,” explained Do-Jang owner Shane Rahn. Rahn’s Academy hosts a tournament, every couple of years, said instructor Matt Skaar. On average, attendance ranges from 200 to 325 for each competition. This tournament was instrumental in helping quite a number of students in securing places as provincial and Canadian champions, Rahn said. “And it’s an opportunity for black belts to earn points in the world top 10.” Rather than single out any particular competitor, Rahn said: “I would just say how incredibly proud I am of them ... all of our students had a great attitude.”
