Pink salmon flow from one of the two fish wheels located upstream of Crescent Island on the south shore of the Fraser River near Mission.

here’s high demand for pink salmon in B.C., and a group of Tsawwassen and Matsqui First Nations fishermen on the Fraser River are using one of the oldest instruments to catch the sacred fish – at a rate of roughly 3,600 per day. The group of First Nations fishermen is using two giant fish wheels upstream of Crescent Island on the south bank of the Fraser River near Mission to haul in their catch.

So far, fishermen at the wheel site have caught more than 18,000 pink salmon since the harvest began eight days ago. The fish will be sold commercially as part of the Tsawwassen allocation, said Karl English, past president and senior fisheries biologist of LGL Limited, environmental research associates. It’s the first year the fish wheels have been used to selectively harvest pink salmon, and they have been fully licensed by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans, said English. “The most concern people have with fish wheels is if one individual owns this wheel, the individual would make a good profit from the amount of fish they can catch,” said English.

“So they really are more of a communal fishing tool, and if you have this type of collaborative effort . . . then they can do it selectively and spread the income.” English added that most of the criticism focuses on the cost to build the fish wheels. The smaller fish wheel at the Crescent Island site, which is accessible from the north shore only by boat, is roughly $50,000, while the larger one cost nearly $100,000. The two fish wheels used to be located by the Mission bridge, and were funded jointly by the Fraser Salmon and Watershed Program, which is administered by the Pacific Salmon Foundation. see SALMON, page A5

ormer Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce executive director David D. Hull has been arrested and charged for a third time. Hull was arrested and charged with breaching his release conditions on Sept. 12. He resigned as chamber executive director at the end of June after being charged with assault following an arrest on May 28. The charge was the result of a complaint by a 35-yearold woman; police have not said how the woman was connected to Hull. He racked up a second DAVID D. HULL charge of criminal harassment after allegedly sending harassing texts and e-mails on June 24 to a man connected to the original complainant. Const. Ian MacDonald said Hull allegedly breached his release conditions barring direct or indirect contact with the female linked to the first charge of assault. “It wasn’t face-to-face contact but it was still contact by means of electronic devices,” said MacDonald. Hull is scheduled to go to trial on the assault charge in Abbotsford provincial court on Dec. 5. An arraignment hearing for the criminal harassment charge is set for Oct. 17. The Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce requested, received, and accepted Hull’s resignation as of June 23, and announced the resignation June 30. He had previously been suspended with pay since June 3. Executive director of the chamber since 2005, Hull maintained a very public profile within Abbotsford. One of Hull’s last acts as the voice of the chamber was his attendance at the BC Chamber of Commerce AGM in Prince George at the end of May.

Probe into council continues

Briefly Cedar Street complete The official opening ceremony for the Cedar Street widening project is Monday, Sept. 19 at 10 a.m. The project, started in June 2010, has improved traffic flow and enhanced safety for vehicles, trucks, buses, cyclists and pedestrians. The work has also helped to protect fish-bearing watercourses in the area. The reconstruction is 800 metres long with two lanes for through traffic and a designated bicycle lane in each direction. Other features include a raised centre median, concrete sidewalks on each side and median plantings with street lights. The cost of the project was $3,881,025, shared equally among federal, provincial and municipal governments through the Infrastructure Stimulus Fund. The ceremony is the parking lot of St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church, at 8469 Cedar St., Mission.

anada’s only two Iron Chefs are going to give folks a taste of exemplary cuisine at EAT! Fraser Valley Food and Cooking Festival this weekend at Abbotsford’s Tradex. Superstar chefs Rob Feenie of Vancouver and Québec’s Chuck Hughes are scheduled for the Food Network Celebrity Cooking Stage at the event, giving the audience a chance to sample their talents. Feenie – the first Canadian to win Iron Chef America, the iconic food show that pits celebrity cooks against one another – is also the food concept architect for Cactus Club Restaurants. The master of French food is eager to return to the region to savour the area’s produce and check things out at the new Cactus Club soon opening its doors in Abbotsford. Feenie has a long relationship with Abbotsford area suppliers of fresh, sus-

tainable vegetables, greens, and meats. “I love the produce and blueberries, or the organic grain fed meat I’m getting . . . the list goes on and on,” he said. Feenie will incorporate Abbotsford’s local fare into his demonstrations at the festival. There is an ever-increasing number of foodies in the Fraser Valley, he noted. “There is a huge interest level out there because the people grow the product.” The chef, whose Food Network show New Classics with Chef Rob Feenie is in its fifth season, enjoys the event because of the interaction with the audience. Folks still quiz him about his Iron Chef win in 2005. The popular show has drawn attention to a number of Canada’s great chefs, including his colleague Chuck Hughes, he said. Hughes, an admirer of Feenie’s work, is also keen to interact with fans and sample local fare at the Tradex event. The young chef, with his TV series

Chuck’s Day Off, hopes to interchange ideas with his audience. “The TV show is a new thing . . . it’s kind of a lonely thing talking to the camera,” said Hughes. “So when I do events and talk with fans, it’s a lot of fun. “The personal contact gives me a really new perspective, and allows me to see what’s going on over there and discover great new things.” Besides the rush of cooking live, Hughes is as keen as anyone else at the event to experience new flavours. “I enjoy the festival and food just like everybody else. I try to eat as local as possible and it influences everything I do.” Hughes hopes to chat with fellow Iron Chef Feenie this weekend. As far as he knows, a food battle between the pair of them isn’t in the works. “A battle between the two Canadian Iron Chefs . . . that would be a good idea,” he said. “He would probably kick my ass. I don’t know about a battle, but at least we’ll get to talk.” ◗ EAT! Fraser Valley runs Sept. 16 to 18 at Tradex, 1190 Cornell St., Abbotsford. For information visit eat-fraservalley.com.

he District of Mission Council is hoping to release information to the public about documents on a variety of issues that have allegedly been leaked from private council meetings. Council unanimously voted in February to initiate an investigation after concerns were raised over the unauthorized release of information from in-camera council meetings. According to district s p o k e s m a n Pa u l Gi p p s, council is concerned information on a variety of issues has reportedly been leaked to the public. This includes but is not limited to the Public Safety Inspection Team and the district’s controversial controlled substance property bylaw – or marijuana bylaw – and the Stave Lake P3 water proposal. “It ’s o n g o i n g . I k n ow council is eager to provide as much about that as possible,” said Gipps. “They’re working on it, I can tell you that.” Mission councillor Jenny Stevens was the subject of controversy in May after m e m b e r s o f t h e RC M P seized her personal computer in connection to a breach of trust investigation after information into the PSIT was allegedly distributed to the public. Stevens’ computer, which she relies heavily on because she is visually impaired, was returned to her not long after the seizure. No charges were laid in the case. Gipps said he couldn’t comment on if the RCMP investigation that Stevens was involved in was related to the district’s current investigation. There is no word yet on when the District of Mission will announce its findings on the investigation.

Trial for alleged road rage fatal underway Witnesses tell of night friend mowed down TRACY SHERLOCK Postmedia News

itnesses told a packed courtroom on Monday about being run off a desolate, dark road late at night after trying to pass a truck that was braking. Their vehicle flipped into the ditch and when they got out to survey the damage, the truck returned, slamming into passenger Silas O’Brien, 21, who died at the scene as his lifelong friends tried to revive him. Many of O’Brien’s family members and friends were in New Westminster Supreme Court on Monday for the trial of Brent Donald Parent, who is facing charges of criminal negligence causing death in the alleged road rage case. Parent, 41, of Langley, has pleaded not guilty. Samuel Dooley, 23, and Luke Stephen, 25, told the court that on the night of the crash, they were driving to Seattle to catch a plane to Hawaii. The three young men were

SILAS O’BRIEN lifelong friends who lived together in the Bradner area of Abbotsford. It was just after 2 a.m. on March 13, 2008, and the three were in Dooley’s Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck. Dooley testified he was driving behind a white Ford pickup also heading westbound and braking for no apparent reason. Stephen told the court that the pickup truck slammed its brakes on, and that Dooley swerved to avoid it. When Dooley went to pass in the eastbound lane, he said the pickup accelerated, eventually forcing Dooley’s truck off the road, where it

flipped into a ditch. “Once we climbed out of the ditch, the other vehicle was gone,” Dooley testified. Stephen said he wondered why the other vehicle had rammed them off the road. “Why would someone do that?” Suddenly, the truck was back and it headed straight for the three friends, Dooley and Stephen testified. Dooley and Stephen jumped out of the way, and then saw the truck hit O’Brien. “As I jumped out of the way, he passes by me. The truck made another distinct movement onto the shoulder and that’s where he strikes Silas,” Dooley said. He tried to resuscitate his friend, but could not. The Ford pickup truck drove away, Dooley said. Parent’s lawyer, Vincent Michaels, said outside court that he expects Parent to take the stand later in the trial. O’Brien’s family said they will wait until the trial is over before making a statement. Parent is charged with criminal negligence causing death, dangerous driving causing death, dangerous driving, failure to stop, and failure to offer assistance. The trial is expected to last two weeks.

crime unit and community response unit executed three search warrants in the 33500 block of Ferndale Avenue and two warrants in the 13300 block of Sabo Street, producing a number of arrests. The cash value of last week’s marijuana seizures was not identified.

Meet the man behind

he tradition of the Terry Fox Run will continue this weekend in Abbotsford despite fears it would be cancelled earlier this year. The iconic, annual cancer awareness and fundraising event goes at 9 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 18 at Ellwood Park, 31419 Maclure Rd., Abbotsford. The run, which has taken place in Abbotsford for 28 years, was in danger of being cancelled in June, as it had no volunteer coordinator, said Donna White, provincial director for B.C. & Yukon of the Terry Fox Foundation. “But we’ve had this amazing group come forward,” said White. “And for coming on board so late and not having done the run in the past, they’ve done an amazing job.” With new coordinators taking up the torch it means people can continue to be part of the Terry Fox vision, White added. “It means everything to the community and people who continue to share in Terry’s dream,” she said. All Terry Fox Runs are completely volunteer driven, and participants in Abbotsford will be taking part in the event in solidarity with people in 113 other B.C. communities. Free registration for the run in Abbotsford starts at 8 a.m. and absolutely everyone – seniors, kids, parents and pets on their leash – is welcome to

Border jumpers caught by APD ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com

A

bbotsford Police captured four men illegally crossing the border from the U.S. on Tuesday. Police got a call from a farmer just south of the line in Lynden, Wash. about men breaching the border around 12:30 p.m. near Zero Avenue and Ross Road, said Const. Ian MacDonald. Officers attended with a K9 unit and tracked down the fugitives in a field in the 600 block of Ross and Huntingdon roads. The South Asian men, who ranged from 21 to 41 years of age, were not in possession of any drugs or weapons but were carrying a quantity of U.S. cash. They were taken into custody and will be handed over to immigration officers who will work to determine their country of origin, said MacDonald. There has been a recent surge in the number of people caught illegally crossing the border in Abbotsford, said MacDonald. “We’ve probably had seven [people] in three weeks,” he said. On average Abbotsford Police receive a call a week regarding a possible breach

of the border, which may or may not pan out into an illegal crossing, said MacDonald. However, officers detain approximately one individual monthly. The recent increase is not likely to drastically change the numbers of people caught this year, said MacDonald. “We’re still within the average for the year.” T h e re i s g e n e r a l l y a n increase in the number of people who breach the border in the summer months, he said. Most people illegally crossing the border are doing so because they are running weapons or drugs or trying to avoid immigration. “Many are trying to improve their personal or family’s circumstances or they are seeking reunification of family or work,” said MacDonald A lesser number of those caught breaching the border do so inadvertently or for an imprudent thrill. “A small percentage of people have no criminal intent. They may be hikers or people who, seeing no big fence or wall separating the countries, make a quick crossing out of curiosity or because they see it as fun or interesting.” That is until border officials or police descend, he noted.

he search continued this week for another fisherman swept away by the powerful Fraser River at Peg Leg Bar in Chilliwack. About two dozen friends and family members of 24year-old Christopher Vang of Abbotsford continued to search both sides of the Fraser River downstream from Chilliwack on Wednesday. A Facebook page, MissingChrisVang, was set up and posters have been distributed asking for help in finding Vang. “He loved his family, fiance, and fish, and may never hold them in his arms again,” the poster says. Vang’s brother Mike spoke to the Times from a boat on the river near Langley on Wednesday. “We are heading down to Golden Ears and working our way back up again,” he said. RCMP Cpl. Randy Dixon told the Times that a police helicopter was out searching on Wednesday but police boats were no longer on the water. “It’s a hard thing to tell the family but this is strictly a

recovery now,” Dixon said. Chilliwack resident Peter Giesbrecht was fishing at Peg Leg late Monday afternoon when he saw three men try to cross a channel to the island just offshore. “One guy went in and his buddies went in to try and save him,” Giesbrecht said on Tuesday. The man who went in the water was swept into the main river. He was wearing hip waders but no life jacket, according to Giesbrecht. One of the three men in the water made it to shore about 10 yards down, he said. The second was pulled out by those on the bar who formed a human chain and helped the struggling fisherman up the steep gravel bar using a two-by-four. The strong currents meant the RCMP dive team were unable to search on Tuesday. But RCMP air services and Chilliwack Search and Rescue continued the search along the shorelines and from the air. On Labour Day, a man nearly drowned in the same spot on the river but he was rescued by two men in a boat. - WITH FILES FROM THE VANCOUVER SUN

Smoke fading from clear future

I

used to believe it’s the shortage of oxygen getting to their brains. But now I’m kind of leaning more towards thinking it could be one or more of the hundreds of toxic chemicals they feed their brain cells every time they suck dirty, tobacco-polluted air into their lungs. My reasoning runs thus: burning rubber releases foul toxic chemicals similar to those of cigarette smoke into the air around those incomprehensible folks who like to… well… burn rubber. So Occam’s Razor kind of gives the chemical explanation the edge, as it quite neatly fits both cigarette smokers and the special brand of “car enthusiasts” who get off on burn-outs. There’s an even simpler explanation, of course: their matches a bit damp; their lighters aren’t burning bright enough; or to put it in a way that might get some traction with the burn-out crowd, their rubber doesn’t quite meet the road. But I like to give people the benefit of the doubt. I prefer to think it’s not that they’re inherently stupid, but that there is an environmental influence at work – even if that environmental influence is of their own making. The excuse of chemical extraction of intellect goes well with today’s pervading social atmosphere that requires we find someone… something… anything… anyone else to blame but ourselves.

BOB GROENEVELD

Odd thoughts On the positive side, that social atmosphere is looking like it’s burdened by a lot less smoke than it used to be. Less cigarette smoke, that is. And the future looks even clearer. Recent statistics show that fewer Canadians than ever are fouling the air with tobacco smoke, and B.C. is leading the way. Even better, it appears teens are clearer on the message than adults: the Canadian Tobacco Use Monitoring Survey has less than one in 10 teens – the 15-17 age group – sticking cancer sticks in their mouths. That’s the age group that constitutes the non-smokers of tomorrow, folks. As a group, they’re smarter than we were. It suggests a bright future – and I’m not talkin’ ’bout that bright bit at the end of a cigarette. In the meantime, it behooves us to clear the air – to help clear the way for young non-smokers who are following us into a future with less cancer, less emphysema, less chronic bronchitis, less coughing and hacking, and less icky yellow skin on fingers and lips.

But sure enough, every time a move is made to help people make a healthier choice, there’s a gang of deluded, toxic-chemical-befuddled smokers trying to stand in the way, spouting nonsense about “personal freedoms” and “infringement of rights.” Sorry, but there’s nowhere that says you have the personal freedom to blow smoke in my face – at least, there shouldn’t be. And what about infringement of the right to work, walk, and enjoy time without the smell of cigarette smoke hanging over everything. Langley City Councillor and Metro Vancouver Parks chair Gayle Martin has voted against banning cigarette smoking from portions of regional parks. She is part of a gaggle of dissenters who apparently don’t realize that cigarette smoke stinks, even outdoors. And that odour isn’t just annoying, it’s dangerous. Whether I’m in a designated seating area, an appropriate number of metres from the door of a building, or in a regional park, when I involuntarily inhale poisonous cigarette smoke, it is an infringement of my rights, not the smokers. The kids today have figured out there’s a clearer path to the future. Let’s follow them. ■ Visit Bob Groeneveld’s blog, Edi-

tor’s Notes, at http://tiny.cc/v7b94 at www.langleyadvance.com.

ast week, the B.C. Civil Forfeiture office began looking into whether it can seize 13 luxury cars that were involved in an alleged street racing incident on Sept. 1. A group of young men and one woman, none older than 22 and six with the green ‘N’ of a new driver stuck in their back windows, were speeding more than $2 million worth of cars at up to 200 km/ h on Highway 99 in rush hour. Each driver was fined $196, and will likely pay $300 extra on their insurance next year. Big deal. A used Lamborghini Gallardo will set you back around $150,000 to $175,000, a new one goes for up to $250,000, depending on the options. All the cars involved – Maserati Turismos, Mercedes SLs, a Ferrari 599, an Aston Martin – were in this absurdly overpriced class of luxury sports cars. One of the cheapest was the Nissan GTRs, which go for just $109,000 new. While many kids across the Lower Mainland are scraping together money to buy 10 or 20-year-old used cars, or simply taking the bus or borrowing the family mini van, these kids were handed the keys to road rockets by indulgent, wealthy parents. Tickets aren’t going to bother these spoiled, irresponsible young people. Taking the cars, on the other hand, is a great idea. The loss of a six-figure car will bring home to their parents the impact of the actions of their overgrown children. Hopefully the parents will lay down the law, or at least not buy replacement cars. Given the actions of these young men and woman, if they don’t learn their lessons, they’ll end up wrapping their next cars around trees, street lights, an innocent bystander’s car . . . or worse.

One local teacher states her case Editor, the Times:

I did the math. I am at school by 7 a.m. to get copying done, organize handouts and do other preparatory work. I am in my classroom until 6 p.m. I spend on average five hours each weekend, marking, recording marks, developing worksheets and lesson plans, and so on. So, each working week, I work 60 hours, teaching high school. If a normal work week is 40 hours, I work 50 per cent more. Since I teach for 36 weeks a year, this comes out to 54 normal work weeks – with no time off. In addition, during Christmas and Spring breaks, I work three or four eighthour days each week, catching up on marking and preparation. I did at least eight hours of work each week during my summer holidays, plus a four-day professional development course, which cost $1000. I do all of this for the princely sum of $45,000 per year. I am a new teacher. I have five years of university, and I have to wait for the end-of-class bell to pee! I have a family that wants my attention, but doesn’t get it because I’m busy with school. Please, remember that teachers work hard, yearround, for our students. Elizabeth Cousar Abbotsford Traditional Secondary School

Reader wants respect for a differing opinion Editor, the Times:

Message to Robert T. Rock I am one who believes

in the Bible. I will explain my case and not hide what I have learned, but I will never shove religion down someone’s throat or be a “Bible thumper.” The very nature of true Christianity is such that unless one willingly receives it for his or herself, it has no value at all. Rock mentioned frustration because those involved with the Republican Tea Party have not respected the rule of “separation of church and state.” This phrase is not included in the constitution, but rather is one that Thomas Jefferson coined when he wrote to the Baptist Church of Connecticut as an assurance that he would protect the church from any negative controlling involvement from the government. The concept was never intended to keep the church out of the affairs of government, but rather, the exact opposite. This is not to insinuate that those who follow Jesus Christ are above the law of the land – as the Bible itself teaches us to submit to the ruling authorities. However, I would like to believe that the democratic society that I live in would allow me to voice my opinion, in a just and respectful manner, even if it differs from your own. I am careful to listen to opposing arguments and I hope that I could receive the same respect from those who disagree with me. In regards to your concern for the environment, there is nothing in the Bible that gives us the right to live carelessly with the earth’s resources. I am sad that those who

ing? Are value-added taxes expected to pay down debt? Or are they simply a means for profligate governments to feel flush? Sufficiently flush to spend more and increase debt? Has the carbon tax helped B.C.’s environmental or fiscal realities? Is the carbontransfer tax a benefit for B.C. citizens, B.C. schools, B.C. hospitals? Or does it benefit only large business? Do lower taxes for corporations really guarantee new jobs? Or is it possible that demand creates new jobs – demand generated by decent-paying jobs to begin with. If we had continued to tax corporations at higher levels, would we have lost head offices to Ireland, with its 12.5 per cent corporate rate? Did the economy of that beleaguered country actually benefit from international head offices making Ireland home? Business may be the engine of the economy, but consumers provide the fuel. And if companies continue to downsize, how do citizens become consumers? So when prospective political leaders promise lower taxes while government debt continues to rise, ask them if they expect your children and grandchildren to pick up the slack.

Taxes vs. debt; our kids will pay the price Editor, the Times:

Without a fall election, I guess politicking will now last for the next 18 months instead of the next two. And I’m sure that we will hear a lot more about taxes, with misconceptions reaching back at least four decades – to the federal Liberals under Trudeau. When a politician promises to keep taxes low – particularly for large corporations – we need to ask what this really means. What if we had questioned the argument that debt is an investment in the future? What if we in the early 70s had – recognized that debt is actually an albatross around the neck of successive generations? What if we had paid sufficient taxes to have kept this albatross at bay? What if these taxes had lowered the debt rather than financed increased spending? Would the cries of taxpayers actually paying their own way have influenced politicians to control spend-

W

hat is the difference between pride and humility? Being proud or arrogant involves having a know-it-all attitude and taking matters into your own hands. It is based on fear of believing that God is withholding good from you. It is a selfish act concerned only for the needs and feelings of oneself. Pride involves being self reliant, coupled with a belief of being better than others. 1 Peter 5:5, 6 says “Likewise you younger people, submit yourselves to your elders.” “Yes, all of you, be submission to one another, and be clothed with humility, for God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble. “Therefore humble yourself under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time.” Psalm 34:18 says, “The Lord is near to those who have a broken heart and saves such as have a contrite spirit.” There are many benefits in living a life of humility. It honours God and gives Him permission to work in your life. Here are some of the attributes of humility. As you read the list, ask yourself which ones you need to develop in your life. People who possess humility are: • God-conscious and rely

Above and beyond on Him for help. • Teachable and willing to learn, admitting their own weaknesses. • Compassionate, forgiving others because they know how much they have been forgiven. • Believing there is enough for all of us and are genuinely interested in seeing others succeed. • Believers of God’s willingness to work in them despite all their flaws. • Accepting of personal responsibility and able to see where they are wrong in a situation. • Concerned with being real because what matters to them is not what others think, but what God knows. • Willing to be open and transparent with others as God directs. • Able to acknowledge specifics when confessing their sin. • Quick to take the initiative to be reconciled when there is misunderstanding or conflict in relationships. • Honest and not trying to cover up secrets.

between pride and humility is the motive of your heart. God is aware of what is in your heart and wants to shine His light into the dark areas of our soul. In Psalm 51: 10 David says to God, “Create in me a clean heart, Oh God, and renew a steadfast spirit in me.” People who operate in true humility are a joy to be around. They are not defensive or judgmental. They aren’t trying to prove that their story is better than yours. They are are genuinely interested in others. Humility is a quality worth pursuing, but it only comes by relying on God. Admitting that we need Him and then trusting that He hears our prayers are true acts of humility. Know-it-alls are really annoying, probably even to God. Only those who are humble can really handle promotion without letting it go to their head. God knows more than we do, and relying on Him is an honour. Pride pushes God away, while humility draws us closer to Him. ■ Alice Maryniuk is the author

“They are still counting and will be rolling pennies for weeks to come yet,” said MCC BC spokesperson Angelika Dawson. symbolic auction on Saturday morning, the loaf of bread sold for more than $100,000. Fraserway RV – which has been supporting the MCC Festival for 20 years – had three units at the sale this year, allowing the bidder to choose their vehicle. The successful bidder paid $16,000 for a brand new RV. The quilt auction raised $22,850 with the two highest selling quilts bringing in $6,800. Cyclists joined the Pedaling for Hope cyclathon and raised over $65,000. Thousands of pennies were also counted and rolled throughout the weekend at the Penny Power booth. The coin drive supports food security projects in Sudan and any donations were matched 4:1 by the Canadian

International Development Agency (CIDA) through the Canadian Foodgrains Bank. But perhaps the most popular draw was the food. “As always, there was a stampede for the food lines and bake sale. They are the first thing everybody heads for,” said Hoeppner. The food court not only featured tasty fare from Africa, Eastern Europe, and Latin America, but local favourites as well. A total of 18,000 vereniki, cottage cheese perogies, were consumed, said Hoeppner. Additionally, 87 pounds of butter was used to make the cream sauce and 2,900 pounds of farmer sausage was sold. ◗ Visit aids.mcc.org for more information.

he annual MCC Relief Sale raised hundreds of thousands of dollars and fed a multitude at Abbotsford’s Tradex last weekend. Angelika Dawson, MCC BC spokesperson, said the proceeds from the sale Friday and Saturday, not including funds raised at the Sunday Festival of Praise at Emmanuel Mennonite Church, were still being tallied. However, a preliminary count indicates the festival has already raised more than $609,000. “They are still counting and will be rolling pennies for weeks to come yet,” said Dawson. The money raised will support MCC’s Generations initiative, assisting those infected and affected by HIV/AIDS. Events coordinator, Dora Hoeppner, said the relief sale saw close to 20,000 visitors with help from a dedicated team of 1,200 volunteers. Children – and their parents – also did their part with their very own auction of kid-friendly items, raising more than $1700. A mini-auction and silent auction on Friday night raised thousands more.

Splashes of purple, pink and white are popping up in gardens as the Autumn Crocus makes its appearance.

A crocus for fall A

spectacular fall flowerer with many names may still be available in garden centres – today it’s usually called ‘Autumn Crocus’ after its flowering time and the shape of its large, gobletshaped flowers in purplepink, mauve or white. Old-time names include: ‘Naked Ladies’ and ‘Naked Boys’ because the flowers usually emerge before the leaves. Sometimes it’s called ‘Wonder Bulb’ since it’s capable of flowering when bare bulbs are left on a windowsill. Botanically it’s called ‘Colchicum.’ Because its beautiful, easy to grow, tolerant of adversity and adaptable to most variations of sun and shade, it’s a wonderful asset for any garden with average soil. This is one of the plants that survives for years in very old, untended gardens. Though colchicum bulbs aren’t cheap, they’re great value because they’re longflowering and increase fast into large mats without adventuring into places where they’re not wanted. The two extreme situations that can kill them are dry, dense shade and swampy or flooded conditions. Their ideal situation is a few hours of sun daily and well-drained soil that doesn’t dry out severely. The time when water is really needed is whenever leaves are showing. Luckily this is usually when our climate supplies lots. During August/September gardeners who want Autumn Crocus for their garden will need to move fast to acquire them – because once spring bulbs arrive the autumn bulbs either sell out or vanish from stock. It’s also important to plant them before leaves begin to grow – and they should never be moved while leaves are visible. I tried this once as an experiment and it took several years for flowers to re-appear. All colchicum are very hardy in this climate. They accept acid or alkaline soil, but can have trouble in extremely nutritious soil.

Green thumb Bonemeal is good nourishment for them. Easily available colchicum include some Colchicum speciosum hybrids such as ‘The Giant,’ which is very tall, mauve and whitethroated and ‘Water Lily,’ a double pink which is inclined to flop. Another popular bulb is ‘Colchicum autumnale,’ a smaller, later-blooming white version which also has white stems. Earlier blooms lean over and become a white mat surrounding the later, upright flowers. Garden club plant sales are a good place for gardeners seeking unusual colchicum bulbs. These include the dwarf Colchicum agrippinum which has mauve chequered flowers and deep green pointy leaves. Colchicum speciosum has a huge-flowered mauve form but also a rarer (incredibly beautiful) white one. Colchicum cilicium is fragrant (if you can bend down that far). This is said to come true from seed (but seedlings take up to five years to flower). One of the most prolific bloomers is ‘Lilac Wonder,’ an assertive pink. ‘Autumn Queen’ can be found in catalogues and is a deep purple. There are many other cultivars of Colchicum speciosum, most in shades of pink or pinkish mauve with variations of height and white-throatedness. Flower numbers per bulb vary between six (usually for the doubles) and 20. Seed can be found on the soil at the base of the leaves in spring, but collecting it needs care and latex gloves. Colchicum is very poisonous. ■ Anne Marrison is happy to

Healing from cancer 3/.-1 -14 021By Andrea Debruin On May 12, 2010 during an ultrasound check-up at Children’s Hospital, a technician found something abnormal in Sophie Rosenberger’s kidney. “We were really lucky that the Wilm’s tumor was detected early by accident”, says Chris Rosenberger — Cops for Cancer Tour de Valley Rider. “My wife Katie and I were told, ‘you need to go see oncology’, which was met by stunned silence, so the radiologist had to clarify that we knew what oncology was and unfortunately we both did.” Sophie went for surgery four days later… but that’s last year’s story. Today three-year-old Sophie is enrolled in pre-school and swimming lessons. Chris describes his daughter as a happy and healthy girl with a big head of thick curly hair. Chris, a Border Services Officer, is cycling 800 km between Tsawwassen and Boston Bar to raise funds and awareness for pediatric cancer research. “My wife and I were at a point where we were looking for something we could do to try and fight back, we weren’t at the coping stage anymore, we were both kind of moving into the fight back stage and Cops for Cancer seemed like a really good fit.” The Rosenberger’s also benefitted from family week at Camp Goodtimes, a remarkable camp that provides support for families dealing with cancer. Sophie enjoyed the activities while

Chris and Katie were able to attend group sessions that encouraged families to heal and talk about their experiences with cancer. Chris admits to feeling slightly apprehensive about the physical demands of the Tour — “but when you have something to focus on it makes it a lot easier. I have a very well defined reason for doing what I am doing — I get the reinforcer every time I go home and see my daughter.”

Ultimately, Chris rides to let Sophie and any child with cancer know that, “you are all normal kids, able to be happy and have fun.” He invites the community to cheer on the riders during Tour: September 22 – 30, 2011. Visit www.copsforcancerbc.ca to see how you can join the fight! Ad sponsored by

Hot shows at the AESC Maroon 5 draws a crowd; more big acts on the way

CAM TUCKER camtuckertimes@gmail.com

T

h ere’s a good feeling at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre these days in the wake of the successful Maroon 5/Train concert on Monday night.

The show brought in as many as 6,000 fans, and you’d be hard pressed to find anyone who found something wrong with the four-hour show. The two popular bands, along with Matt Nathanson, wowed the excitable audience, which was comprised mostly of young women, with their upbeat songs of love, lust and living life. The masses went home happy, and it likely the major acts coming to town will be just as pleased with the facility. Word seems to be getting out there

among music and concert promoters that the AESC, the “bottomless money pit” as it has been referred to by public critics, is a pretty happening place to host a show, not only for its lively crowds but for the positive cooperation between event and centre staff. More proof of things to come took place Tuesday when AESC announced Canadian country music star Paul Brandt is riding into town for one show only on Wednesday, Dec. 14. He has become the latest in a growing number of musical sensations that have agreed to play at the Abbotsford

venue. It appears country music acts are becoming a mainstay at the centre. Who can forget when Alan Jackson and Reba McEntire came to town? And there’s more on the way. A week today, Big & Rich, one of country music’s most dynamic duos comes to the AESC with the redneck woman herself, Gretchen Wilson. Celtic Thunder will perform in October and Disney on Ice - Toy Story will thrill audiences of all ages in November. See www.abbotsfordcentre.ca for more details and ticket information.

On Saturday, Sept. 17, the Historic Dewdney Pub presents Har ma White from 8:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Their selection of rock and blues is great for listening and dancing. The Dewdney Pub is located five minutes east of Mission, just off Hwy 7. Call 604-826-4762 for more details.

One of the best ways to foster ongoing cultural activity in a community is to recognize its artists and artisans, its visionaries and volunteers – all those engaged in shaping and supporting events. To that end, Mission is holding its first annual Muse Awards to honour those that make our city resonate with vibrant new ideas and creative forms of artistry. Awards will be presented in many fields, including music, visual, performing and literary arts, with separate categories for emerging artists and groups/individuals.

The annual Muse Awards, created by the Cultural Resources Commission, will connect artists and arts advocates with a wider audience, both within and beyond the community. The inaugural ceremony will take place on Oct. 27 at the Cedarbrooke Chateau, at 7 p.m. Nominations are open until Friday, Sept. 30. For full criteria and nominations, go to www.mission. ca/culture or visit the CRC table at the Celebrate Mission event this weekend at Fraser River Heritage Park.

Bancks still brings the Heat

Flames prospect not about to back down from playing tough CAM TUCKER camtuckertimes@gmail.com

A

popular proverb to describe Carter Bancks amongst those in pro hockey circles is ‘edge.’ Bancks, listed at 5’11” and 180 pounds, proved once again Sunday night just how accurate that portrayal is when he picked Ben Thomson of the San Jose Sharks prospects team out of the crowd and dropped the mitts.

First reported @

abbotsfordtimes.com

“I like to be known as a team guy, and if the team needs a spark, I’m willing to provide that whether it’s through a hit, a blocked shot, a fight . . .” – JEAN KONDA-WITTE/TIMES FILE

– Carter Bancks

The fight occurred in the second period of the Calgary Flames-San Jose Sharks prospects game at the Canucks Young Stars Tournament in Penticton. Thomson, for the record, stands 6’4” and outweighs Bancks by about 20 pounds or so. The difference is size was no big deal to Bancks, who is likely to return to the Abbotsford Heat this season after putting up 19 points in 29 games with the Flames farm team in 2010/2011.

Carter Bancks grew popular with Abbotsford Heat fans last season for his tough style of play despite missing 51 games with a concussion. He fought Sunday as the Calgary Flames prospects lost 6-1 to San Jose in Penticton. “He was a pretty big guy,” said Bancks on Tuesday from Penticton. “It was good to get yourself back in the game and get hit a few times. “It’s an edge of my game that I’ve got to have. I do play on the edge. I try not to cross it, I try to be an honest player. “I like to be known as a team guy, and if the team needs a spark, I’m willing to provide that whether it’s through a hit, a blocked shot, a fight or whatever it has to be.

“I was just trying to spark something and get a little momentum going.” Dropping the gloves is nothing new for Bancks. He did the exact same almost a year ago when he fought a member of the Anaheim Ducks prospects team at the 2010 Young Stars Tournament in Penticton. He came away with a fat lip for his efforts in that fight, but couldn’t help but crack a smile when ques-

tioned about it afterwards. But his decision to scrap Sunday night was a curious one, mainly because he missed 51 games last season with a concussion. He originally suffered the injury during a game against the Providence Bruins on Nov. 12, and spent the next 25 days waiting for the symptoms to lift. He returned to the lineup Dec. 7 against Lake Erie, scored a goal in what would be a 3-2 shootout

victory, then didn’t see game action again until March 25, again due to a concussion. However Bancks makes no apologies for his bout Sunday. “Obviously it’s a little bit in the back of your head,” said Bancks. “I guess I can’t really think about that. Even in [Sunday’s] fight I took a couple of good punches and I still feel fine. I guess that was a good test for that, but it’s something I can’t be scared of entering contact again because then I won’t be successful as a player.” It’s hard to argue with that point from a hockey point of view. Playing on a minor league contract last season, Bancks showed the Flames brass his meddle on the ice, albeit with a smaller sample size compared to most prospects. Bancks, 22, impressed the Flames organization so much so that he was signed to a two-way contract on July 1. A strong showing this season in Abbotsford – provided he gets sent down to the farm club – should bolster his chances of getting called up to the NHL, but it also provides the Heat with another reliable two-way forward capable of contributing offensively. “It will depend on what role he settles into,” said Heat head coach Troy Ward, who referred to Bancks as a “coach’s dream.” “The one thing about Carter is he can play a lot of different roles. He can play centre, left wing, right wing. He can play on the checking line, he can add skill and play on the top two lines. “I think he is going to put up numbers, but it depends on the role he assumes within our team.” No matter what role Bancks finds himself playing this season, expectations have increased. “I’m not going to change anything. There’s a reason I got to where I am now, and that’s because of my work ethic,” said Bancks.

Hawks meet Roadrunners Friday is gameday as Timberwolves take on Nanaimo CAM TUCKER camtuckertimes@gmail.com

– YVONNE CHURLY/W.J. MOUAT HAWKS/FOR THE TIMES

Devin Logan leading the rush for the W.J. Mouat Hawks.

t might be a battle of Double-A versus Triple-A, but Friday’s contest between the Mission Roadrunners and W.J. Mouat Hawks varsity football teams looks to be the marquee match-up of the weekend. The Triple-A Hawks, coming off a thrilling 53-47 victory over the Mt. Douglas Rams on Sept. 9, will look to

continue their high-flying offensive ways against a bigger Double-A Roadrunners squad, which is coming off a convincing 20-2 win over Seaquam on Saturday. One of the biggest challenges for the Roadrunners will be to stop Hawks Grade 12 running back Devin Logan, who scored four touchdowns in the win over Mt. Douglas, including an 89-yard kickoff return. Logan also had 142 yards rushing in 23 attempts for three touchdowns. Friday’s game begins at 7:30 p.m. at the W.J. Mouat Field in Abbotsford. ■ The Robert Bateman Timberwolves kicked off their Double-A debut in style with a 40-0 win over Tier II Double-A Moscrop. They take on Nanaimo, another Tier II Double-A team on Friday, which

should provide the Timberwolves a chance to gain even more confidence leading up to their first true Double-A test against Hugh Boyd on Friday, Sept. 23. The Timberwolves entertain Nanaimo beginning at 1:30 p.m. from Robert Bateman Secondary. ■ The Rick Hansen Hurricanes fell just short of a minor upset last weekend after losing to Earl Marriot by 14-13, but they’ll look to get into the win column when they face the Mount Boucherie Bears on Friday. Kickoff begins at 1:00 p.m. at Rick Hansen Secondary in Abbotsford. ■ The Abbotsford Collegiate Panthers open their exhibition schedule Friday against the John Barsby Bulldogs at Rotary Stadium at 11:30 a.m.

T

he Cascades soccer program got not one, but two feathers in its cap this week, as the school announced its UFV Cascades/ Abbotsford Heat Athletes of the Week on Monday. Carly Neeson, a second-year forward from Maple Ridge and general studies student, tallied the winning goal in the 49th minute of Sunday’s 2-1 victory over the University of Regina Cougars, giving the women’s soccer team a perfect 2-0 record on their prairie road trip to open the Canada West season. CARLY NEESON “Carly’s goal was special,” said Cascades women’s soccer head coach Rob Giesbrecht in a release. “It’s nice having a player like her on the team because at any given moment she can provide a moment of brilliance that can change the game.” Meanwhile, Brian Davis of the men’s soc-

cer team, was named UFV’s male Athlete of the Week, thanks to his goal in a 4-2 loss to the UBC Thunderbirds on Saturday. His tally wasn’t enough, as the Cascades gave up two penalty kicks in the second half to the Thunderbird’s Marco Visintin, who capitalized on both. How e v e r D a v i s , a Kinesiology major,had a pivotal role in Friday’s thrilling 1-0 victor y over Trinity Western University. The UFV/Abbotsford Heat Athletes of the Week recognizes the Cascades top individual athletic achievements BRIAN DAVIS throughout the CIS and BCCAA seasons. The awards are given to both male and female athletes at the school. The recently announced award winners were the first of the 2011/2012 athletic season at UFV. – STAFF REPORTER/ WITH FILES FROM UFV

Job opportunity ads are salary based and do not require an investment. If you have responded to an ad which you believe to be misleading please call the Better Business Bureau at 604-682-2711, Monday to Friday, 9am - 3pm or email inquiries@bbbvan.org and they will investigate.

Cancer June 21-July 22: The paperwork rush continues. Errands, trips and casual acquaintances keep you busy through Thursday.After this, you enter a month of relative rest, of comfy home, kids, gardening … the pace will slow. Be cautious Sunday/Monday: your energy and luck are low, and a subtle but deep disagreement, dislike or other problem exists. (Could simply be that your love of home, security, interferes with a relationship opening or other opportunity.) Your energy and charisma surge back noon Tuesday to Thursday: tackle small things. Chase money Friday/ Saturday. Buy hi-tech Thursday night. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Continue to chase money Sunday to Thursday. A new phase begins Friday, bringing a month of talk, travel, paperwork, casual acquaintances – and a friendly romance, if you’re single. Your magnetism, determination and ethical, cultural awareness grow now through Nov. 10 – you might have to sand some rough edges off your personality. Your hopes and popularity rise nicely Sunday/Monday. Be cautious Sunday in using tools to decorate anything, and in what you say to coworkers. Your energy falls midweek, but soars back Thursday night onward – you could meet a sparkling friend or idea! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your energy, effectiveness and luck remain high, so tackle important projects. Be ambitious Sunday to 9:30 a.m. Tuesday. This last morning could bring a great agreement – or solution to past disagreement – with your spouse or at the workplace. Beware money talk or a financial gamble Sunday. Your optimism, popularity rise midweek, but “reality barriers” remain: be patient. Thursday night begins a month of money, and it starts with a great work idea or opportunity, or a “financial friendship” – a good one! It will pay off for six weeks. Your work scene faces big changes.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: A lot of work remains, but by Thursday night it will all be over – a little lingering bit, but mostly over – and a major month of relationships, new horizons, agreements, negotiations – and opposition – begins. Be careful Sunday – someone does not agree with you at all, whether they show it or not. (Or, someone does agree with you, even wants you as a partner, but his/her “home concerns” will kibosh it.) You’re busy. Six weeks of home-related anger/intensity ends; six weeks of romantic or creative urges begins. But settle into home midweek: heal, rest. Romance is real, later! Taurus April 20-May 20: It’s your last week of romance, adventure, creativity, life’s beauty, risk and speculation. Be careful Sunday: do nothing unethical or unwise, in love or anywhere. Don’t listen to someone who urges you on. This night also begins six weeks of potential domestic strife. Direct your energy into repairs, studies, research, government dealings, rather than squabble. (If you start these after supper Thursday, all will be well home-wise for the duration!) Otherwise, Sunday to dawn Tuesday is splendid for chasing money. Midweek’s for travel, communication, paperwork, reading, details. Gemini May 21-June 20: You’re still bound to home, children through Thursday. Use these days to garden, repair, contemplate and soak up nature.You’ll feel restless, as a six-week period of speedy travel, communications and casual friendships begins now. Your magnetism glows Sunday/Monday, but a love or pleasure notion needs caution. Buy/sell, chase money midweek. By Friday, you’ll be ready to charge into romance, beauty, creativity, pleasure, joys with kids, speculations and risk. You’ll have a hot hand at the poker table. A good but unpredictable friend might woo, flirt! But that’s Friday onward.

604-434-9992 ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: These are your last five days of lowered energy – your energy, charisma, clout and effectiveness begin rising swiftly Friday onward (into late October). Even earlier (Sunday night) your popularity begins to rise, for a six-week flight! This popularity streak brings great new opportunities, including life-mate prospects to singles, and practical partnership prospects to married folk. You are in a year (until June 2012) of superb financial, investment, intimate and sexual luck. This blesses financial partnerships, but could offer temptation in love – be honest, open, moral. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Five days of fun, flirtation and popularity remain, but life is beginning to grow more serious. The six weeks ahead emphasize hard work in your career field (rather than, say, at home) (if you stay at home all the time, that IS your career). These weeks, higher-ups and authorities can be impatient, temperamental, so be diplomatic, good-natured. (Thursday to Saturday, your career luck soars!) Friday begins four weeks of quietude, contemplation, management and administrative dealings. Be charitable, kind. Sunday/Monday are sexy, but chase no one Sunday. Wisdom, love midweek. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Remain ambitious for five more days. Friday starts a month of popularity, flirtations, social joys, entertainment, group affairs (from parties to conventions to politics), optimism and wish fulfillment. Sunday also begins a six-week period of “blessed love.” You might formalize a partnership (e.g., wed or sign business papers) fall in love, travel to a foreign country, attend school, start a publishing enterprise, etc. One caution: avoid legal hassles. Relationships come front and centre Sunday/Monday, but someone new can be a “sex trap,” or harm your finances – say “no.”

Sept. 18 - 24, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: A gentle, understanding mood continues to flow over you. But Friday brings a new injection of ambition that will have you striving upward ceaselessly for a few weeks. Even before Friday, you spend this week curling into deeper thoughts about money and how to increase it, about the structures underlying appearances and how to use them. (Great ideas here late week!) The six weeks ahead will increase your impetuousness in investing, and will heighten your sexual urges, so be careful (but not afraid!). Tackle chores Sunday (avoid struggles with a “gracious” higher-up) and Monday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Mystery begins to dissipate – you enter a month of understanding and wider vision Friday. Until then, deal with research, detective work, finances, health and intimate urges. Sunday/Monday are romantic, but a legal matter or a love wish will not benefit you Sunday – proceed cautiously. Tackle chores midweek. Thursday night to Saturday brings exciting meetings, good friends and launches a month of wisdom, gentle love, far travel, legal and intellectual affairs, religion and higher learning. Sunday starts six weeks of intense relations: friendship could become love – or enmity. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Relationships and opportunities continue – so does the need for diplomacy. Spend most of Sunday/Monday at home, or in nature. Relax, sleep, deal with children, garden. Sunday might bring a secret liaison into the open, or put a temptation in your path that would prevent one of your fondest wishes from coming true – proceed cautiously. Romance, beauty and pleasure call midweek. Thursday night to Saturday brings chores and mild health concerns/duties – a great money idea/ opportunity exists – chase employment. Friday begins a month of secrets, urges, finances, lifestyle changes. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
