Adding two more drive-thrus to Mission is a “quick and dirty way of earning money,” said one resident Monday night at a public hearing on a proposed shopping centre at Cedar Valley Connector and Lougheed Highway. But council voted 5-2 to ap-
prove the development, which will include a 16-stack drive-thru Tim Hortons and a 10-stack drive-thru Burger King, despite an Official Community Plan (OCP) bylaw that prohibits them. The additional drive-thrus brings the community total to eight. Couns. Heather Stewart and Danny Plecas represented the no vote, with Stewart lamenting the decision by her colleagues. “I had hoped that we would lead on this,” she said. The decision wasn’t made lightly, however, as council listened to a dozen concerned residents at the public hearing that lasted

nearly three hours. Coun. Paul Horn took exception to the “quick and dirty” characterization, saying the developer has made “every possible effort” to accommodate the community. But resident Pam Willis pointed out council had already decided it didn’t want drive-thrus in the district when it created the bylaw in 2008. “I’m baffled that council would even be considering this,” she said. A 794-signature petition against drive-thrus was delivered to council in May, although a 247-signature petition was presented in
favour Monday night. Most of the speakers noted they were in favour of the development, with opposition stemming only from the drive-thrus. “I think fast food restaurants and drive-thrus are a thing of the past,” said Roger Dowker. Despite objections, council felt it was appropriate to green light the application, given they had already approved it when the developer first applied in December 2007.

about work around Windebank Creek, a development permit wasn’t issued at that time. That matter was resolved in court last year. But shortly after that, the contentious drive-thru issue led to the OCP change. The developer was forced to reapply, which many councillors said meant the application pre-dates the bylaw. “You don’t pull the rug out on people mid-stream,” said Coun. Mike Scudder. Horn agreed, saying the development would likely fall through without the anchor tenants receiving drive-thrus. He added that drivethrus in that area aren’t unreasonable either, given that the zoning is commercial-highway, and similar in character to other developments along Lougheed. Coun. Jenny Stevens admitted to reservations about the drive-thrus, but said “on balance” the development would be good for the district. “If we don’t bend a bit on this one, we’ll keep the eyesore we’ve got, and lose the jobs that would have been created,” she said. Mayor James Atebe acknowledged the drive-thrus are controversial, but said there has to be a balance between environmental, cultural, social and economic factors. The developer applicant, Harvey Weiss, said numerous concessions have been made since the first application, including reducing the size of the buildings, adding landscaping, artwork and improving pedestrian access. Although pedestrian-friendly developments are a stated priority for council, the developer’s architect, Eric Ching, said the site is vehicleoriented by virtue of its location. The 1.37 ha (3.39 acres) commercial development will be separated from the environmentally sensitive 0.7 ha (1.73 acres) Windebank Creek to the east, which the developer will donate to a conservancy group. The main centre will feature five buildings with retail stores, including an oil change business. Construction is expected to be completed in a single phase, opening in the summer of 2012.
The former courthouse building at the corner of Seventh Avenue and Cedar Street has been empty for nearly 10 years. Council on Monday approved a temporary permit application which will see a number of small businesses set up shop. RECORD FILE PHOTO
Multiple businesses will occupy vacant Cedar and Seventh site STORIES
Council has granted a temporary permit application for a commercial development at the southeast corner of Cedar Connector and Seventh Avenue, the site of Mission’s old courthouse. The property has been vacant for almost a decade, with ownership changing numerous times. It’s now owned by Ali Shamei, a local businessman who has properties in Abbotsford as well. Local residents were concerned
about a number of issues surrounding the application, including increased traffic to an intersection that has seen almost 170 collisions since 2006. David Smith, who lives in the adjacent building to the south, said numerous cars use the alleyway daily to shortcut from the Connector to Maple Street, and a new development will increase congestion and compromise pedestrian safety. He said neighbours want the alley closed altogether. The applicant’s traffic engineer, however, said two-thirds of the re-
ported collisions near the intersection happened at night, not during increased traffic periods. Jan Voss said the light at the intersection is also set at equal intervals for both Seventh Avenue and the Connector, even though the latter receives 70 per cent of the traffic volume. He said that changing the light duration should solve a number of traffic issues. Council approved the application, pending compliance with the district’s traffic engineering specifications, including closing the most
northern access point on the Connector, as well as a prohibition on any second-hand clothing stores. The permit allows for a multitenant commercial complex within the old courthouse involving eateries, and personal and professional services. Hours of operation will be 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. for all other uses than eateries, with those businesses allowed to stay open until 11 p.m. After three years the developer will have to reapply, or request a permanent rezoning of the land use.
Three-storey building approved on First First Avenue is getting a new three-storey commercial-residential development at the former site of Syd’s Place, which was destroyed by a fire in 2005. The commercial component of the building will house almost 5,000 square feet on the main floor. There will be indoor parking on
the second floor (accessed via the rear alleyway) with an additional 1,500 square feet of office space. The third floor will contain four residential units. “Not only is it a handsome-looking building, but it’s nice to see a development downtown,” said Coun. Paul Horn.
Although there are three retail spaces, developer Darren Hall said one tenant could take the whole floor. The building design includes hardi siding, wood and bricks that will contribute to the “heritage look” encouraged in new developments in the district, according to architectural drawings provided by
the developer. Although one resident expressed concerns about an increased strain on parking, the Downtown Business Association has stated it is satisfied with the 10 parking spaces the development will provide. Coun. Jenny Stevens said, “10 spots is 10 spots more than we had.”

Watkins Sawmill was back in business on Monday two days after a fire destroyed a pair of buildings at the east Maple Ridge lumber operation. Owner Ed Watkins promised the burned remanufacturing plant, which employs between 10 and 12 people, will be rebuilt. Watkins’ log mill, which employs another 50 people, was not affected by the fire. “We’ve already put a bunch of people back to work today,” said Watkins, who was first on scene when the fire broke out around 8:35 a.m. Friday. “The main log mill is running and the treatment plant is back at work. We are going to put [the workers] in some of our other buildings to keep them employed and they will also help with the rebuilding and the cleanup.” Firefighters from Maple Ridge, Mission and the North Fraser fought the fire long into Friday afternoon, containing it to two metal-clad buildings on the property and pre-

venting it from spreading to an adjacent shake mill and treatment plant. Founded in 1947 by Bill Watkins, Watkins Sawmills is still owned by the family and has operated its mill on Lougheed Highway at 288 Street for more than 60 years. Because of the stock of lumber inside the re-
manufacturing building, there was plenty fuel to keep the fire burning into the afternoon. At the height of the fire, 14 fire trucks — nine from Maple Ridge, four from Mission and one from North Fraser — as well as 60 firefighters battled the blaze. An Abbotsford fire service engine was dis-

patched to cover the District of Mission and the Pitt Meadows Fire Department attended calls in Maple Ridge while their crews battled the blaze. Kerry Exner was welding at S&W Forest Products, a sawmill adjacent to Watkins, when office staff told him a building next door was in flames. Exner, who spent 23 years as a Mission firefighter, ran to the Watkins mill, grabbed a fire hose and began to cool propane tanks and wet surrounding buildings on the property to stop the flames from spreading before fire crews arrived. Several propane and acetylene tanks blew up in the fire and at least one fork lift was destroyed. One of the buildings destroyed in the fire housed 80,000 litres of oil-based stain and solvents which posed a potential hazard if spilled into the nearby Stave River. Because of the threat, the Ministry of Environment worked with the Maple Ridge Fire Department and Ridge-Meadows Search and Rescue to prevent contamination of the Stave. Maple Ridge municipal works crew helped by erecting booms and sawdust berms to contain runoff water. “To the best of our knowledge, the river was not affected,” said fire chief Peter Grootendorst. “Once the fire was controlled, the paint was allowed to burn off until the fire was fully contained. Smoke plume dispersion and wind direction were closely monitored by the Ministry of Environment during the incident to ensure the public was not in any danger.” Vacuum trucks were brought in to remove 200,000 litres of contained runoff water from the site, so it could be safely disposed. Watkins Sawmill has contracted a private hazardous materials company that is now responsible for cleaning up the site. The cause of the fire remains unknown. A night watchman had patrolled the building around 3 a.m. Friday and employees were working near it around 6:30 a.m. but noticed nothing amiss. “We are still trying to determine what the exact cause was. At this point, there is no reason to believe it is suspicious. It was an accidental fire,” said Grootendorst.

Layton ‘endlessly optimistic’ BY MONISHA MARTINS Black Press
On Saturday, when Jack Layton is laid to rest, Janet Amsden will be wearing orange. Donning the bright hue is her way of saluting the federal New Democratic Party leader who died of cancer on Monday at age 61. Since 2005, Layton had made at least one trip a year to the Pitt MeadowsMaple Ridge-Mission riding, always attending the annual summer barbecue. Amsden, who is president of the riding association, was always surprised that he arrived with no entourage or handlers, who kept an eye on the clock. “He’d just sit down and ask you how you were? He wasn’t working the room. He was just like a friend,” said Amsden. Layton’s death comes just months after he steered the NDP to official Opposition status in the House of Commons, a first for the party, which
NDP leader Jack Layton visited Pitt MeadowsMaple Ridge-Mission in 2006 to help Mike Bocking (on left). He also attended the riding association’s summer barbecue every year since 2005. RECORD FILE PHOTO
Layton had led since 2003. Layton had fought prostate cancer since 2010, but in July, announced he faced a second, undisclosed cancer. He wrote a letter to Canada barely 48 hours before his death, ending it with the words: “Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.” His
letter was so powerful, said Amsden. “Just the idea that a man on his death bed would take the time to write and console other cancer survivors and pass the message on. I think the reason he was so effective was because he believed so profoundly in what he was doing.” Mike Bocking, who ran as a NDP candidate in the riding in three federal battles, first met Layton in 2003 and hosted both
him and his wife Olivia Chow when they visited. The couple took in the Maple Ridge Caribbean Festival in 2008 and also celebrated their anniversary locally. “He was endlessly optimistic and really good-natured. That was infectious with people. It turned them on to the NDP. One of the reasons I ran several times, apart from the fact that I shared NDP values, was the idea of potentially being able to work with a leader like him.” Layton will be the second Opposition leader in Canadian history to be given a state funeral. Sir Wilfrid Laurier was Opposition Liberal leader when he died in 1919. “I think the best way to pay tribute to Jack is to build up his legacy, continue to move the NDP to be really inclusive, welcoming and bring in new ideas and new people,” said Bocking. To convey condolences to Layton’s family, Canadians can visit commemoration.gc.ca.

Youth can be a source of optimism No doubt many readers of this column are expecting me to comment on the decisions made at Council Monday night, August 22. However, out of respect to the sponsors of this column (who did not sign on to pay for critiques of Council’s decisions) I will not be commenting here. Moreover, I have always tried to send out optimistic messages within this column. I will forever remember Jack Layton’s relevant but final message to us, particularly the statement within that message---“Optimism is better than despair.” The optimism we can draw from last night’s meeting is that volunteerism, in the form of public comment, is one of Mission’s strongest assets. Many of those volunteers sat until 11:00 p.m. to comment on a variety of developments brought to Council. Even more

Optimism also rings out in the Mission statements of the two organizations for which this column is written: Communities in Bloom and the Mission City Farmers Market. C in B’s mission “…is committed to fostering civic pride, environmental responsibility and beautification…” The Market’s mission includes this statement: “…Enhance the health and economic well-being of residents of Mission and the surrounding area. The Market’s slogan, “It’s a fun place
to be” exemplifies the organizers’ overriding attitude that small, as in “small market,” is ok. Finally, I derive optimism from the young people who are stepping forward to support the true meaning of community sustainability. In earlier columns I mentioned Taylor McPherson of Ferndale Gardens and Rhett Nicholson, organizer of the recent MissionFest. At the Fest I was introduced to Richard Murphy, a young entrepreneurial powerhouse at Below Retail on First Avenue. These youthful, hard working business people are also positive role models for other youth. The Farmers Market theme for Saturday is Heritage Day. Celebrating our individual, unique heritages is as important as building on common strengths. Keep blooming, Mission!

Layton a class act Canadians were shocked to learn Monday morning of the passing of Jack Layton, federal leader of the opposition and longtime NDP leader, at the age of 61. While many may have had a premonition that Layton would not be able to win his second battle with cancer, they were instinctively rooting for him. He was a genuine person whose likeability was a key factor in taking the NDP from 13 seats, when he became leader in 2003, to 103 in the May 2 election. Layton was a man of conviction, but he was also practical. He took the NDP away from some of its more extreme positions towards a party that was more middle of the road, and was able to do so in such a way as to avoid internal splits that could have caused many divisions. As he grew up in Quebec, he had a natural connection, but it was his ability to convince Quebeckers that the NDP would represent their province well that led the party to win so many seats in the recent election. It is not insignificant that Layton rose from municipal politics to become NDP leader. He was a longtime member of Toronto city council and served as president of the Federation of Canadian Municipalities. The most successful municipal politicians are bridge-builders. They learn to work with people of differing political philosophies, because they know that they are all there for the greater good of the community. Layton brought that kind of pragmatic approach to the national stage, and even when he disagreed heartily with his opponents, he never did so in a nasty, personal manner. He preferred to use his sense of humour. He was a class act. - Langley Times

Power plan isn’t dead yet H
e would never quite admit it, but former premier Gordon Campbell’s push for selfsufficiency in clean electricity has always looked to me like a long-term strategy to export hydroelectric power. It still looks that way. B.C.’s spring and summer runoff match perfectly with peak air-conditioner season in California. But the recent review of BC Hydro operations discusses how the prospects for exports have changed since Campbell’s 2007 energy plan. The government instructed BC Hydro to wean itself off power imports by 2016, even in drought years, and obtain new capacity mostly from outside sources with net zero greenhouse gas emissions. Nuclear plants were formally ruled out. The review of BC Hydro by three top bureaucrats acknowledges that government directions have “placed pressure on BC Hydro to increase their energy supply through increased longterm agreements with independent power producers

ing company, wrote to the California Air Resources Board asking for clarification of the state’s proposed changes to its greenhouse gas reporting and cap and trade rules. California wants to prevent suppliers from engaging in “resource shuffling,” where a supplier such as B.C. might import coal power from Alberta for its own use, while selling supposedly clean power for export. Considering that restriction, B.C.’s self-sufficiency rule starts to make more sense. If B.C. is not importing power, its supply must be clean. Also, a meta-analysis on climate effects came out last week in the journal Science, detailing world-wide species migration due to warming. Clean energy sales to California are a long way off, but it would be a mistake to reject the possibility.

I don’t, but there’s no way on Earth I want Wal-Mart here. Her letter was one of those do I laugh or cry decisions. For one, when she makes totally silly statements like how neither small or larger
Point missed Editor, The Record: Re: Odours might be human error, Aug. 18 edition. You are missing the point. In plain English, the point is that the neighbour stores his Rot Pot in the driveway next door. It sits out in the sun all day long and we are lucky to still see it upright by night fall, because the local dogs and kids have a habit of knocking it over, spilling the contents. Thus at 2:30 a.m., attracted to the smell of the food scraps, the skunks come along, who are confronted by the territorial cats in our neighbourhood. Skunks naturally give off an odour and don’t need to spray, but when they do, do not have your bedroom windows open. That odour will be permeated throughout the house for the rest of the night. Ron Wilkes Mission
businesses are hiring, but goes on to contradict herself by saying “if they are they are.” The troubling thing for me is that she is not alone in singing the praises of, in my opinion among others, the worst of the American chains, that has all the charm of an invading army. Like J. Elizabeth, these people say they’re for jobs but don’t see that Wal-Mart often means fewer net jobs. J.
Elizabeth talks about her mommy friends and customers who apparently think they’re too good to work for McDonalds, for example. How they don’t want inadequate hours. Wow, I bet they want benefits as well. WalMart will fulfill all their delusions: No. Some downtown cores are decimated when Wal-Mart comes along. Go look at downtown Chilliwack if you want
to see empty store after empty store. Isn’t it bad enough that our mayor and council betrayed those who have worked on the revitalization of First Avenue without having J. Elizabeth make insulting statements such as downtown appeals only to those shoppers with fat wallets. I hope for J. Elizabeth’s sake that she prints up a copy of her letter slamming those
of us who read books, do the research, and get into the real story behind big box stores. The globalization and the abuse of overseas workers that fuels the flood of cheap goods found in these stores is the enemy of any country that wants to maintain its own democratic institutions and its political sovereignty. Robert T. Rock Mission
Opposed to nonsensical political action Editor, The Record: Having been too late to successfully submit a letter on the subject, I found myself agreeing heartily with Mr. Muir’s letter asking questions about the painting of bicycles on our roadways and the erection of accompanying roadside signs. I read Clint Coffey’s comments with interest. Mr. Coffey makes a series of observations to support his contention that Mr. Muir’s concerns about cyclists’ safety are nonsensical and patronizing. Just to be clear for Mr. Coffey, I consider myself apolitical but consistently in opposition to any politically motivated actions which make little sense. Mr. Coffey levels the accusation of political motivation at Mr. Muir, however, I must say that to me his own letter smacks far more loudly of politics and has much
more of a “campaign” feel to it. Mr. Coffey compares Highway 1 to our suburban and rural roads when addressing the idea of cycle lanes. There really is no realistic comparison between a multi-lane highway and our city’s streets, and we might just as well compare cycling accident statistics between the two road types to the same pointless end. Mr. Coffey states that cyclists “stay safe” by using sensible defensive strategies and I agree with him — unless, of course, those cyclists are young or inexperienced, otherwise vulnerable due to physical limitations (for example, less fit and therefore often less aware), or the victims of poor driving, all of which are regular factors in bicycle accidents. Defensive riding is a very useful strategy, but anything that im-
proves the protection afforded to cyclists (such as clearly marked bike lanes) is surely a positive step. How could, as Mr. Coffey asserts, such discussion be a “disservice to logic?” These signs and paintings do little or nothing to create a climate of safety, whereas a properly researched, designed and implemented system of bike-only lanes would genuinely provide road space specifically for our most vulnerable flow-of-traffic road users. As for the accusation of patronizing the cycling public, given a choice between feeling patronized and getting to my destination in one piece or feeling ignored and broken at the side of the road, I know which I’d prefer.

Celebrating 25 years & over 3,000 vehicles sold!
in the Fraser Valley Auto Mall
returns in ‘12 Editor, The Record: Last Saturday (Aug. 13), we closed off First Avenue and threw a party. Everyone was invited to the inaugural MissionFest, a celebration of our downtown community, and it was a wonderful experience for everyone. I would like to thank all those who came down to take part in the many activities and to meet up with friends and neighbours. It reminded all of us that we have a very special community full of some truly fantastic people and places! What started as an inkling of an idea some months ago exploded in a celebration of our downtown community! It just could not have been possible without some great people from the downtown neighbourhood. These people believed in the idea, pitched in and made it all possible. I would like to thank the Downtown Business Association and our gang of organizing volunteers, and all those who practised spontaneous volunteerism throughout the day. Thanks to absolutely everyone who came downtown! See you next year! Rhett Nicholson MissionFest organizer
Mission Police-Based Victim Services Program The Mission Police-Based Victim Services program has volunteer openings for individuals who are passionate about community safety and supporting victims. Volunteers provide emotional support, information and referral to programs and services that may beneﬁt a victim as well as his or her family, criminal justice information and support, including court preparation and accompaniment, safety planning for victims where appropriate, and general ofﬁce support for the program. Volunteers must be at least 20 years of age, have no prior criminal record, and possess a valid driver’s license with a clean driving abstract. All volunteers are carefully screened according to RCMP requirements. Once accepted as a potential volunteer, 50 hours of training is provided prior to the start of volunteer activities. Volunteers are asked to commit to one 4 hour ofﬁce shift per week, four 12 hour on-call crisis shifts per month, and one 3 hour team meeting per month. We are looking for a minimum two year commitment. A prospective volunteer must live within 30 minutes of Mission. Victim Services Volunteers are supported and supervised by the Victim Services Coordinator and her staff. If you are interested in this unique and important way of contributing to your community, and you would like to know more, please register for a 60 minute information session by calling 604-820-3538 and asking for Victim Services Program Coordinator, Gina Lehmberg. The Mission Police-Based Victim Services Program is funded by the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General and the District of Mission. It is administered by the Women’s Resource Society of the Fraser Valley with operational oversight and support provided by the Mission RCMP.

Mission RCMP stop rave before it starts
Mission Mounties shut down a rave Saturday before it had a chance to start. Twice. Local RCMP heard an estimated 1,200 were planning to go to the mud flats on Stave Lake for an all-night party. Information about the event had spread via Facebook and Twitter. Police contacted the rave organizers, and they refused to stop the event, so a roadblock was set up and party-goers were turned back, said Cpl. Sharon Siluch. Within six hours, she said, the organizers had moved over to the Davis Lake area on Sylvester Road, and again, police attended and turned away the ravers. â€œIt was made very clear to the organizers and the people who were turned away at the roadblocks that the District of Mission and the RCMP do not condone raves or any unsanctioned events of this nature,â€? said Siluch. â€œThis event used up a considerable amount of police resources which included extra cost to the District of Mission.â€?

total of 22 drivers issued driving suspensions by the Mission RCMP along with the Integrated Road Safety Unit. Police issued nine 90-day suspensions, 11 three-day suspensions, and two 24-hour suspensions for drugs. Some of these drivers had come from the Rockinâ€™ River Music Festival, said Mission RCMP Const. Amanda Fallis, despite strong police presence throughout the event. Chilliwack man killed on DTR A 42-year-old motorcyclist from Chilliwack was killed Saturday after a crash with a Honda Accord on Dewdney Trunk Road. Darren Kampman was riding east on Dewdney Trunk Road at around 4:10 p.m. when he collided with the car which was turning south onto Center Street. The man was pronounced dead on the scene, said Mission RCMP Sgt. Miriam Dickson. The driver of the car and three occupants received minor injuries. The cause of the accident is still under investigation. â€œMotorcycles are growing in popularity,â€? said Dickson. â€œWe would like to remind all road users to drive and ride safely and use extra caution. If you are a rider, make yourself visible and be sure to wear a helmet that meets recognized safety standards.â€?

Soapbox Derby runs Saturday on Stave Lake Street BY JASON ROESSLE Mission Record
Youngsters will be rocketing down Stave Lake Street this Saturday in custom-built soapbox derby racers. The annual event starts at 10 a.m., and is being held this weekend after inclement weather forced a cancellation of the race earlier this summer. Remco Bergman, Soapbox Derby Association president, said there are “just shy of 60 cars” registered for the race, with between 10 and 15 new cars competing. These additions represent parents and kids getting together to build racers, he added. “There’s momentum behind the event,” said Bergman. “There are lots of people talking about it. It’s become more of an event.” Rounding out the day’s entertainment will be
several booths, as well as a dunk tank and bouncy castle. The RCMP might also be coming by with a radar gun to clock the racers, said Bergman. Stave Lake Street, between Knight and Seventh Avenue will be closed from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m.

â€œEnd of Summerâ€? Rotary Clubâ€™s $20K donation Tractor Sales Event
funds Heritage Walk at FRHP Fraser River Heritage Park now has a heritage walk, thanks in large part to the Mission Mid Day Rotary, which raised $20,000. The Rotary Heritage Walk is a rambling stroll with 16 storyboards that feature information
about the park area, history and cultural highlights. Rotary has been working on the project for two years but has been a plan of the Mission Heritage Association for several years, says organizer Debbie Trenholm.
â€œWe were looking for a community project and the money we were raising could stay in the community,â€? she said. Each storyboard has been co-sponsored by a business or individual in Mission, raising roughly $7,000.

Rotary will eventually provide a mulch pathway so the walk is easy to follow, but for now visitors can receive a map and follow it to each of the storyboards. The signs are expected to last about 10 years before needing replacement, but Trenholm said one already needed to be replaced due to vandals. The grand opening happens Sept. 11 at 1 p.m. at the main entrance. There will be refreshments and park maps. Mission Mid Day Rotary is comprised of 34 volunteers who sponsor community events and international aid for polio eradication.

Couple caught in Maple Ridge hotel From BANK Page 8
informing that he had a gun. When he received the money he moved to the next wicket where Swain robbed a customer of $2,300. On April 6, 2009 Swain presented a note at the Bank of Nova Scotia on the 400 block of Main Street in Penticton, fleeing the scene with $1,400. Later that same day, he went into the CIBC on Harvey Avenue in Kelowna presenting a note ordering $4,000 and no dye packs with, “I don’t want to kill you but I will,” also written on the piece of paper. The teller gave Swain $1,800, and when he discovered the dye pack he threw it back at her and took the money. Swain returned to Penticton on April 11 to the second Bank of Nova Scotia location in the city, once again presenting a note demanding $5,000 but fleeing with $3,900. RCMP eventually tracked Swain and his girlfriend down at a hotel room in Maple Ridge, where they found hoodies fitting the description of what the bank robber was wearing, a note and an unloaded handgun and magazine in the vehicle in which the pair were travelling. Crown Counsel asked for six years on four robbery charges and knowingly possessing a firearm without a licence. A stay of proceedings was given to one robbery charge out of Mission and two firearms related charges. Justice Ehrcke sentenced Swain to six years, giving him credit for time in jail while awaiting trial, leaving Swain with three years and 10 months remaining to serve behind bars. The 33-year-old will also be under a lifetime firearms ban. Ehrcke said Swain has 25 prior convictions and has spent much of his adult life incarcerated, with much of it having to do with his addiction to heroin.

Perry Bruce continued, “Canadian coins prior to 1967, and American coins prior to 1964 are all made with silver, and we have noticed a large increase of customers coming to the Roadshow with coins and cashing them in for their silver value”.

JAMES WWTP – Exposed Outfall
The City of Abbotsford on behalf of the Abbotsford Mission Water & Sewer Commission is hereby notifying the boating community that approximately 245 m of the JAMES WWTP Outfall pipe is exposed in the Fraser River. White Hazard Buoys, located off the South East point of Matsqui Island (approximate coordinates 49d07”00”N, 122d19’20”W), are in place to mark the general location of this hazard. Plans are underway to repair the Outfall after the freshet.

wildlife attraction is to freeze food waste until the morning of collection. Simply keep your “kitchen catcher” or a bag in the freezer, rather than under the sink, and empty it into the Rot Pot just before you set it out at the curb. Placing crumpled up newspaper at the bottom of the Rot Pot and in between layers of food waste will really help keep odours and flies to a minimum, or you can try lining your bin with a paper or compostable plastic bag. Please ensure that any compostable plastic bag actually carries a “compostable” logo, as “biodegradable” bags

are not suitable. Paper and compostable plastic bags are available at local building supply stores. Please ensure that your Rot Pot, along with garbage and recycling, is set out by 8:00 a.m., but only on the morning of collection, not the night before, to reduce wildlife attraction. Thank you to all those residents who are already using their Rot Pot, resulting in much less food waste being landfilled. The District is tracking trends in waste diversion and will make the data available, as soon as it becomes available.

Finding that some members of your family simply cannot be convinced to use the Rot Pot? Try engaging them by conducting a waste audit. Take a couple of your regular “garbage” bags outside and spread out the contents on a tarp or large piece of cardboard. Have all audit participants identify things that should not be in the garbage, such as food scraps, recyclable plastics, paper, glass containers, metal cans, pizza boxes, paper napkins. Set up three bags to separate recyclables and compost from garbage. If you’re unsure what should go

where, consult your 2011 curbside collection calendar, also available online at www.mission. ca. When you’re done sorting, weigh each bag on a household scale and determine which material stream represents the highest percentage of your garbage. Discuss the results and provide some incentive to do better, such as a dinner, an event or movie ticket or other desirable prize, if a 50% improvement is achieved within a week or two. Repeat until all items are placed in the right container and feel good about the difference you’re making!

Pursuant to Section 92 of the Community Charter, a council must state, by resolution passed in a public meeting, the fact that the meeting or part of the meeting is to be closed and the basis under the applicable subsection of section 90 on which it is to be closed. Municipal Council will, therefore, hold a Regular Meeting of Council for the sole purpose of going into a closed council meeting at 3:30 p.m. in the Conference Room at Mission Municipal Hall, 8645 Stave Lake Street, Mission, BC. on the following dates if required: August 29, and September 6, 2011.
and information from closed meetings. Over the course of the last term of office council has, on a number of occasions, discussed their concern of confidential information being leaked into the public venue on a variety of topics; not just PSIT or P3 water. Concern was expressed of the potential financial, relational and risk management and other costs to the district stemming from these unauthorized releases. In February of this year, council voted unanimously to initiate an investigation into the unauthorized release of information. Council is currently looking to pursue remedies to this serious issue and work toward the release of as much information as it is able regarding this ongoing issue.

The sixth season of Reel on the River begins Sept. 12 with In A Better World, the 2010 Academy Award winner for Best Foreign Language Film. Choosing the best foreign film to open the series is no coincidence. Organizers chose the 2009 winner The Secret in Their Eyes to open last fall’s series. In A Better World tells the story of a Danish physician working in war-torn Africa, confronted with a steady stream of tragedy and loss. The film raises essential questions about human instincts and our interpretation of telling right from wrong. It’s the first of five films that will be played at Mission’s Cineplex SilverCity between September and November on select Monday evenings. Organizer Beverly James said the inspiration for a mini-film fest came from a family-run cinema in Mission that played Monday night films that wouldn’t ordinarily be shown in Hollywood-themed movie theatres. When the cinema closed, she and her friends wanted to bring back a taste of that experience. “That was the spark that got us looking around to

Sichon trained with the Academy of Music in St. Petersburg and has studied with various musical masters all over the world. He has performed across Europe, South America, India and Asia.

see how we could bring in some mildly alternative films,” she said. The group came across Film Circuit, an offshoot of the Toronto International Film Festival, which supplies films to nearly 200 small communities across Canada. James and friends said Film Circuit provides between 40 and 50 films from which to choose. “That’s the hardest part because there’s a lot of good films out there. And what’s a good film is pretty subjective.” The main goal is to pick a blend of Canadian, foreign and independent films to Mission for each series. On Sept. 26, Reel on the River will play Cave of Forgotten Dreams, the brilliant documentarian Werner Herzog’s latest exploration of ancient artwork in 30,000-yearold caves. Then Oct. 17 features the hilarious British comedy West is West, the sequel to East is East, a story about the Khan family moving back to rural Pakistan from Salford. On Halloween night, the Reel will screen Beginners, starring Canadian Christopher Plum-

What’s Happening in Mission
THE IMPRINT OF GOD Every human society, ancient and modern, has religious beliefs. While there is wide variability in what different societies believe, there are several beliefs which virtually all religions share. One is the belief that we are being observed by a watchful deity. Another is the belief that people will get their just desserts. These near-universal beliefs do not necessarily prove that we are being watched over or that we will get our just desserts, but they do seem suggestive. Nature may have implanted a belief in being watched to keep us vigilant; the world can be a dangerous place. And the belief in just desserts may be a way to keep us honest and well-behaved, which is important in any well-ordered society. But, if the idea of God and the moral law are almost literally written on our hearts, and the feeling of being watched over and inhabiting a universe where people are justly rewarded or punished are virtually universal ideas, then what cruel deception if these ideas correspond to nothing in reality. We certainly can’t know these things with any degree of certainty, but we can and should hope and believe them. “I have seen the burden God has laid on the human race. He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.” Ecclesiastes 3:10-11

Legendary Hearts to close out Twilight The Envision Twilight Concert Series presents Deanna Knight and the Hot Club of Mars at Fraser River Heritage Park on Friday, Aug. 26 from 7 to 8 p.m. Hot Club has been swinging since the ‘70s, sharing their Django-inspired upbeat, toe tappin’ gypsy-jazz. Songwriter Deanna “D” Knight adds a magic sparkle that really brings these wonderful old melodies to life with style, power and grace. She’s complemented by acoustic bassist Charlie Knowles, guitarist Steve “Bugzy” Szabo, while Michael Dunn and Don Kellett spin their sweet Djangoesque lines on lead slide and guitars. Violinist Tom Neville rounds out the full ensemble of roots jazz. The show is sponsored by the Mission Association for Community Living. The Art in the Park program features Gina Esche’s natural way to body wellness, Betty Sandmark’s beaded jewelry and Salt Lane Studio’s craft workshop. Then on Wednesday, Aug. 31 from 7 to 8 p.m., Twilight welcomes Shari Ulrich, Barney Bentall and Tom Taylor to Fraser River Heritage Park. Barney Bentall and his band the Legendary Hearts were indeed legendary in Canada through the ‘80s and ‘90s. Tom Taylor has spent most of his career in the Vancouver cult band She Stole My Beer before going solo. Shari Ulrich has released 19 albums over her career: seven as a solo artist; others with Pied Pumkin, Hometown Band, UHF, and this trio. These talented artists first played together in November 2007 at a songwriter concert on Bowen Island. They and the audience enjoyed the collaboration so much that they soon embarked on more shows together. The Art in the Park program features Carobrian wire jewelry, Anastasia Greenan’s rock candles, Carol Anne Almquist’s watercolours, and Karla Turner’s blended leaf teas. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and join them at the park. The Log Cabin Café and the Blackberry Kitchen are open. Admission is free but donations are encouraged.

Catch some Fire and Thunder at MRP BY DEAN MURDOCH Record contributor
Have you ever seen a race car go over 300 m.p.h.? This weekend “Smoke, Fire and Thunder” returns to Mission Raceway Park. This event features some of the most diverse and interesting feature classes in all of drag racing. On Saturday, the feature classes run in the evening under the lights; the action starts at noon on Sunday. Starting with the always popular jet cars, two jet dragsters and two jet funny cars will rip down the quarter-mile at speeds in excess of 300 m.p.h. (500 km/h). Chuck Haynes holds the current track and Canadian record with a 314.57 m.p.h. blast set in 2009. On that run he went 5.003. Last year he went 312 m.p.h.. Haynes has a new car this year after crashing in the early part of the season and hopes to reset the Canadian record.
Two 260 m.p.h. jet funny cars will battle in a Canada versus the U.S.A. competition as Alaska’s Derek Snelson races Saskatchewan’s Kevin Therres. Both men will have their cars on display at Boston Pizza tomorrow (Aug. 26) evening. The next feature is another Canada versus America battle. Chilliwack’s Tim Nemeth in his “Iceman” Nitro Mustang will race Mark Sanders in the “Mr. Explosive” Nitro Nova. These cars are loud and fast (five seconds at over 230 m.p.h.). Just when you think the fun has ended, you realize it has just started, as two amazing race cars will travel from one end of the track to the other (1,320 feet) on their rear wheels. Ed Jones in the Wheelstanding Firetruck will go up against Rick Marcum in his Chevy pick-up. The fire and flame show by Jones is worth the price of admission by itself.

You will also get to see 10 six-second nostalgia funny cars battle it out on Saturday and Sunday. The N.W. BB/ Funny Cars are back for the second time in 2011.
These cars are famous for 600-foot-long smoky burnouts and side-byside six-second 200 m.p.h. runs. There is a motorcycle stunt team to entertain
the kids and adults between all the other action, followed by the ‘Bad Dog’ Pro Street Shootout, which completes its two-race series this weekend with
up to a dozen six-second 200 mph door-cars with blowers, nitrous and turbo-charged combinations will battle for the Bad Dog title. The Canada West Doorslammers
round out the features classes. Go to www.missionraceway.com for more info, and don’t forget, kids under 12 are free with an adult admission.

Practising literacy easy as ABC September is all about back-to-school — time to get back into routines, make lunches and go to bed early. And since there’s so much to do and kids are still in summer mode, it’s hard to make sure the family is focusing on learning. Learning together as a family is vital to a child’s future education. Doing family literacy activities not only helps
develop children’s reading, writing and math skills, it also provides an opportunity for parents to learn something new too. Children raised in literate households are likely to enter Grade 1 with several thousand hours of one-to-one pre-reading experience behind them. Learning happens in many ways, especially in day-to-day activities. Here are 10 fun and easy

ways to make literacy part of your family’s daily life: • When making your grocery list, have your child write out the items you need to buy. • At the store, ask your child to count out the money to make the purchase. • Make it a habit to always read a story together at bedtime. • When cooking dinner, involve your children in measuring the ingredients. This helps them understand fractions and measurements.
• Driving is the perfect opportunity to practise literacy. Read signs, billboards and licence plates together, and show your children the proper way to read a map. • While on the Internet, make time to research something new that your family is interested in. Researching skills are important and help with reading and comprehension. • In the car, sing along to songs on the radio. Singing encourages learning patterns of words, rhymes and rhythms, and
is strongly connected to language skills. • When playing a board game, read the instructions aloud to each other or count how many spaces to travel around the board. • Involve your kids when you pay bills. This will teach them strong financial skills early on in life. • Children follow by example, so ensure reading is part of your daily life too.

Magnets, mirrors and stickers are standard (just make sure the stickers are removable). But poster paper can be put to good use too — as wallpaper or even to cut out shapes. Get creative.

Do your homework while back to school shopping The summer is winding down and soon students will be returning to class. Chances are you’ve seen the back-toschool shopping ads on television and splashed across newspaper pages. Before you start your shopping, the Better Business Bureau (BBB) has some back-to-school basics. “Whether shopping for new clothes, pens and pencils, or electronic items it’s important to be prepared and have a plan,” says Lynda Pasacreta, BBB president and CEO. “It will keep you on budget, save you money, and avoid getting stuck with an item you don’t want.” BBB has these tips to help you be a savvy back-to-school shopper: Plan ahead Set a realistic budget and stick to it. Make a list of the items you need to purchase to avoid buying on impulse. Be sure to check with your child’s school for a list of required supplies and recommended suppliers to
avoid return trips. Ask about returns and refunds Shopping for new clothes, accessories, and electronics is one of the highlights of going back to school. Ask the store about their return policy and always keep the receipts. In B.C., stores are not legally required to exchange an item or give a refund.

Ask if that is the policy so that you know before you buy. Shop smart online Find out the physical location and phone number of the merchant.

Hiebert, Paulina Ray
(Torrans) Born 1924 in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. Died August 14, 2011 in Abbotsford, BC. She was predeceased by her husband Henry in 2010. She is survived by her four children, Ken, Radiance (Laura), Howie and Eric, their spouses and a stepgranddaughter, Agapi. Paulina was predeceased by all of her sisters and brothers. In particular, she felt the loss of two brothers who died in WWII. As a young married couple Henry and Paulina moved from Saskatchewan to the Fraser Valley and raised their family in Chilliwack and Yarrow. Henry and Paulina will be remembered by many who attended the Alliance church in Chilliwack and Yarrow in the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. Henry and Paulina lived in Vernon, BC from 1989 to 2008 when illness compelled her to move into Menno Home in Abbotsford. We are grateful to all the staff at Menno Home East Two for their years of attentive care and kindness to our mother. We are grateful to all the extended family who offered their companionship and support and in particular Martha Wiens, Paulina’s sister-in-law. A graveside ceremony was held at Chilliwack Cemetery on August 18. If you wish to share your reminiscences of Paulina, you may write to Ken Hiebert, PO Box 2506, Ladysmith, BC or send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org
