he Fraser Valley’s parks, lakes and rivers are major destination points during the first long weekend of the summer season, and police are cautioning Victoria Day vacationers to take extra care on waterways and roads. The RCMP are committed to ensuring people have a safe and positive May long weekend, said Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth. “Last year, we unfortunately experienced several calls with search and rescue for lost hikers, ATV accidents and fishing incidents,” said Hollingsworth. Police will take a zero tolerance approach to public drinking and will enforce all liquor, drug and firearms laws, including seizing open liquor and fining individuals. RCMP will also enforce boating laws on area lakes and rivers and won’t tolerate drinking on vessels. Boaters are required to have a Pleasure Craft Operator Card before taking to the water. Everyone, adults and children alike, should wear an approved personal flotation device such as a life jacket while on the water or shore, as more than 86 per cent of those who drown while boating were not wearing a PFD. Hollingsworth also cautioned people fishing to watch out for water filling their waders and pulling them into the river and into see WEEKEND, page A17

Briefly Minter duplex damaged by early morning fire An Abbotsford duplex on Minter Street suffered extensive damage in a fire early Tuesday morning. Abbotsford Fire Rescue was called out to 2552 Minter just after 6:30 a.m. to find heavy smoke pouring out the back of the home. The lone occupant of the residence had escaped and was treated for smoke inhalation before being transported to Abbotsford Regional Hospital. The residence suffered extensive damage estimated at $100,000. The fire is still under investigation and the cause has not yet been determined. -STAFF REPORTER

bbotsford city planners unveiled their vision for a model university district that will evolve over the next three decades into a walkable, compact, green urban hub. In the vision for 2041, moms with strollers and university students will walk from their condos on leafy tree-lined King Road or McKenzie Street to the campus or to the shopping district. Friends sit at street-side cafés, as cyclists pedal to work in bike lanes. Seniors will take one of the frequent buses to get to their appointments and then socialize in many welcoming public spaces. on workshops and consultation with hundreds of Neighbourhoods are a comprehensive blend of local residents, students, business leaders and city single-family homes, low-rise condos with shops committees. below, and residential towers placed strategically The result is a development plan that will encourso as not to overpower their neighbours.

urban development boundary to the south. Key anchors are UFV and the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre. In the U-District, 165 acres are deemed to have “high development potential.” This includes 30 acres for residential, 30 acres for commerce and mixed use. Significantly for the university, the zone also includes 112 acres to the east of the campus that is within the urban development boundary. It could accommodate university offices and classes, applied research and business park facilities, along with park and sports facilities to serve UFV and the neighbourhood. Alternatively, the U-District vision looks to farmland just south of the campus for possible expansion and development. Both options are in the Agricultural Land Reserve, although the east side was slated in 2005 for employment and university expansion. If and when the university needs to grow, it will have to apply to have the land removed from the ALR. A market analysis by Urbanics Consultants predicts the population in the U-District will grow from its current 2,000 residents to 6,000 and see an increase of 1,200 residential units. Over 30 years, there may be an additional 220,000 square feet of commercial development and 165 hotel rooms. The university may grow another 600,000 sq. ft. and see another 700,000 sq. ft. of business and applied research space. ◗ To see the U-District Vision plan, go to www. abbotsford.ca.

Half of the speakers were a f f e c t e d re s i d e n t s w h o raised concerns about parking, noise and traffic safety and congestion. Quantum Properties, the developer of the 26-storey tower project slated for construction at 2180 Gladwin Road, is asking the city for rezoning to add a commercial component to the residential project. The plan is to add medical and professional offices, a café and some retail space to a redesigned three-storey podium of the previously approved condo building. The Abbotsford council

approved the residential h i g h - d e n s i t y p ro j e c t i n the spring of 2010, despite opposition from neighbours in single-family homes worried about falling under the shadow of the tower. Opponents at that time presented the city with 400signature petition citing concerns about the loss of privacy, traffic increases, the loss of sunlight and disruption from construction while the tower was built. On Monday, the handful of area residents who spoke said the tower was a done deal but the council shouldn’t approve the commercial changes.

Theft from autos spikes in Mission CHRISTINA TOTH CToth@abbotsfordtimes.com

A

fter spike in thefts from vehicles that has cost the community close to $100,000 this year, the Mission RCMP is warning people to take all valuables out of their vehicles and to lock their cars and trucks. Since January 1, the Mission detachment has already had 234 reported thefts from automobiles, said RCMP Sgt. Miriam Dickson.

“It slowed down a bit when we were able to have more patrols, but the minute we get busy, the numbers go up again.” – Sgt. Miriam Dickson

“This equated to a value in loss and damages of $95,000,” she said. As part of a campaign to educate drivers, she said auxiliary officers will be out soon checking vehicles to make sure no items are in view to tempt would-be thieves. They’ll be leaving tickets on windshields to warn drivers to take out their valuables. Drivers who have no visible items in their vehicles will also be left notes commending their habits. Last month alone, Mission RCMP had 66 reported cases of theft from automobiles, the highest number for the month of April over the last five years. “What is more concerning

is the 38 reports over the last seven days of May,” Dickson said. “It slowed down a bit when we were able to have more patrols, but the minute we get busy, the numbers go up again,” she said. These thefts are sporadic and occur in neighborhoods throughout Mission. Most but not all happen overnight. “It’s also hard to catch anyone in the act. This is one of those things where we need the public to play their part,” Dickson said. Most of the thefts are preventable if people would take some simple precautions.

People are advised to:

■ Never leave anything on display when you leave your vehicle. Remove all valuables, such as loose change, gym bags, sunglasses, cell phones, cameras, computers, garage door openers and any new items just purchased from a store. If they can see it, they will steal it. ■ Remove stereo faceplates, GPS and satellite radios and lock them in the trunk or take them with you. ■ Park safely: When at home, park in your garage and be sure to lock both your vehicle and your garage door.

“I have two little girls on that street and they want to ride their bikes,” he said. Resident Anita York said the council originally just i f i e d t h e i n i t i a l t ow e r because it fit the mandate of the official community plan, but now the developer was looking to amend those same guidelines. Mahogany architect Gord Klassen said the number of the units in the building had dropped but an extra

10 parking spaces above the required number of stalls would be included. Quantum Properties will also provide the city funding to implement resident-only parking on Boult Avenue, and it would come up with an additional $50,000 for traffic calming measures if it was deemed necessary. Other supporters liked the idea of a mixed-use, high density building in the

downtown core. It was noted Mahogany residents, particularly seniors, wouldn’t need cars and would have easy access to amenities such as the park, hospital and shopping. The project would also generate needed jobs and revenue for the city. Abbotsford council will likely make a final decision on the matter at its next meeting on May 28.

Cherry-chunking pounds per round D

ebating over what qualifies as ‘sport’ has evolved into its own heated competition around my kitchen table. Regrettably, the Dinner Sports Dispute League (DSDL) hasn’t rounded into a refined federation. Far from it. Like the early days of the National Hockey League – where forward passing was outlawed and goalies were penalized for dropping to their knees – the upstart DSDL is suffering through growing pains. Talking points are volleyed with “whatevverrrrrrr,” “yeahhriiiight,” and “jackwagoooooooon.” One adult feels one way, the other another, and the teenage girl says “Meh,” which neither of the other two quite know what to do with. Fortunately, as DSDLC (Dinner Sports Dispute League Commissioner) I make the final call, and I’ve decided I’m right: Golf is a sport. And while I don’t doubt that outcome is every bit as obvious to you as it is to the entire DSDLHBG (Dinner Sports Dispute League High Board of Governors) [me], I’ll never know for sure, because we’ll probably never golf together. In fact, I know we won’t. Golfing with strangers is like standing naked in a drugstore window hand-cranking six pounds of cherry-chunk ice cream, which is why most duffers stick with regular playing

DARREN MCDONALD

Inside addition partners in a way spouses will never fully understand. The thing about golf is nobody’s good at it, except those in the business or the fortunate few who benefited from youth initiatives like Ledgeview’s Junior Golf Program, or the Optimist Fred Wellsby Junior Divot Golf Tournament. Ironically, the worse you are the less you realize just how long and twisted the road to competence can be. But let’s say we did golf together – what would happen then? For one, we’d be in better shape. Playing 18 holes is roughly equivalent to walking 5.5 to 10 kilometres, so we’d burn a few hundred calories. For another, we’d live longer; at least according to a study by the Karolinska Institutet (Sweden) that found the death rate for golfers is 40 per cent lower than for other people of the same sex, age and socioeconomic status, translating to a five-year increase in life expectancy. Finally, we’d have a chance at representing our country at the highest level of amateur sport. You know, if we got really, really

good (which almost nobody is). After a considerable break (like 112 years), golf returns to the Summer Olympics in 2016. Olympics. Sports. Golf. Case closed. Maybe we’ll run into each other between my half-moon slices or violent lurches at Fraserglen or Valley Golf Centre driving ranges; or worse yet, after I hack apart manicured fairways at Royalwood or Ledgeview. (Actually, let’s make it the latter. Ledgeview and its volunteers deserve our support. Take mom for lunch. Take the kids for lessons. Take your brother for that long-promised round. No matter how you do it, please take the time to discover [or rediscover] our troubled regional treasure.) If we do meet, a simple nod will let me know you’re on board with the DSDLC’s findings. After that, look away in case I twitch into some backswing quick-fix prescribed by a magazine or so-called friend – because any image of my corrupt attack could only corrode your game, and fatten scores. And you don’t want that . . . no matter how many calories are burned along the way.

t’s no joke, although the timing may suggest otherwise. The B.C. Liberal government has finally got around to making good on its promise to get rid of the Harmonized Sales Tax (HST). B.C. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon is tabling legislation to end the HST and return to the Provincial Sales Tax (PST). The change takes effect on April 1 next year. That’s April Fool’s Day, which is kind of fitting in so many ways. The timing will help to remind us of how then-finance minister Colin Hansen and premier Gordon Campbell attempted to make fools of us all by deciding to implement the HST only hours after polls closed on a provincial election, during which the new tax had been explicitly left off the table. But in the true tradition of April Fool’s Day – when a practical joke doesn’t work, the joker becomes the fool – the B.C. Liberals’ HST fiasco put paid to Campbell’s premiership and seriously damaged any ambition of political advancement for Hansen. B.C. voters were not fooled – and they certainly were not amused. The anti-HST movement grew under the leadership (ironically!) of former B.C. fool . . . er . . . premier Bill Vander Zalm, and succeeded despite Campbell’s sacrifice of his premiership and a complete change in B.C. Liberal leadership. The B.C. Liberals still have not recovered from the blow that the anti-HST crowd delivered. At least in part, that is due to the time it has taken – and continues to take – to accede to the results of a historic democratic exercise in this province. It supposedly took only days to implement the brand new HST, but somehow, it has been impossible to eliminate it as quickly. But when you wake up on April Fool’s Day next year, the joke will finally have ended.

THE TIMES THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2012 ❘

Editor, the Times:

Like every other citizen of Abbotsford I have been frustrated by the financial issues of the Abbotsford Sports and Entertainment Centre but I have not let it stop me from enjoying the facility. In the past year our family has enjoyed everything from Cirque de Soleil, Lord of the Dance, Maroon 5 and Train (bands that I never thought would come to Abbotsford!), The Transiberian Orchestra and a handful of Heat hockey games. Every event was first class and were things that would have required a trip to Vancouver three years ago. In actuality we had family and friends come from Surrey and Langley to enjoy some of these events with us and spend their dollars in Abbotsford as we dined out together before the shows/games. My daughter also spent two years working at the entertainment centre in food services. It was a great way for a young person to get work experience and a job close to home. I encourage everyone to enjoy some of the great entertainment that is coming directly to us. Not only do you get to see great productions and sports you also keep your dollars and jobs in our community! Sharon Martin Abbotsford

Not quite sincere support for reduction Editor, the Times:

So, our city council is considering what is called a “harm reduction” facility for those addicted folk in our area. From what I understand, they want to have a free needle exchange for addicts. This would all be supervised by caring nurses. Our Fraser Health authorities claim this will reduce or eliminate crime in our area. They call it “harm reduction”. The addicts would not have to mug anyone any more, or break and enter for money to support their “lifestyle”. Hey, that’s a good idea!

TO INCLUDE YOUR LETTER, use our online form at www.abbotsfordtimes.com, contact us by e-mail at letters@abbotsfordtimes.com, fax to 604-854-1140 or phone 604-854-5244. Letters must include first and last names and your hometown and should be fewer than 200 words.

We could reduce all kinds of crimes this way. We could set up a special bank for crooks and bank robbers. For the property or graffiti vandals we could provide false windows, walls, axes, and spray paints for them to “decorate”. For car thieves, we could supply them with free taxicab rides etc. And just think - no more crime! Eventually, we might completely eliminate our police force. Taxpayers wouldn’t mind a bit. Abbotsford could become a paradise for all of B.C. - if only they would follow my humble suggestions. George Bochenek Abbotsford

Kindly mind your intellectual myopia Editor, the Times:

I think that letter writer George Bochenek needs to study history. And when he starts talking about irreligious groups having caused much horror and slaughter, then I know that he really needs to study history. Religious strife has been one of the major causes of millions of people losing their lives during the past 2,000 years. Intellectual myopia can stem from not carrying out sufficient research, which in many cases can be attributed to the stultification of adhering to certain theistic outlooks. G.E. MacDonell Abbotsford

Be proud, but don’t forget the madman Editor, the Times:

Politics aside, Canadian soldiers fighting in the Second World War were not separated by ideology. Ms. Cawson has every right to proud of her father (PM was off base with treatment of CFF), Times, May 3). But

would she define Hitler as a “petty demagogue,”stamping his feet? Of course war is a last resort, but if the CCF was against a war to prevent a madman intent on conquering the world then they were appeasers. Cherryl Katnich Maple Ridge

No shortage of blood sports available Editor, the Times:

Is the Heat a good hockey team? From my experience in the stands, I’d say so. It is not the fault of the players, the coach, the manager or the owners that our city fathers – and mothers – decided we should have a hockey team at any cost. Any hockey team. I don’t pretend to know a lot about hockey. But even I know that in the past the Canucks were eliminated from the playoffs by Calgary – and that Canucks players have been injured in games against the Calgary Flames. And all this was prior to Abbotsford deciding it would be a good idea to host the Flames’ farm team. Those invested in making a go of hockey locally may want to blame “the economy” – or unmotivated citizens – for low attendance. Yet over two years ago I heard stats that should have been part of our city’s due diligence before landing an AHL team. Apparently the first two years are the best as far as attendance is concerned, no matter how “motivated” the citizenry. Sure, it makes sense that those who love hockey would support the Heat. But those involved with sports – just like those involved in politics – don’t always act as we might either want or even expect. And what about the suggestion that died-in-thewool Canucks’ fans support the Heat because they could be viewing young Canucks? Hardly a perfect analogy I

realize, but do Conservatives support the Liberal party simply because Liberals may one day become Conservatives – did I hear someone say “Emerson” and “van Dongen”? It appears that both hockey and politics are blood sports – and (most) fans and voters are hard-wired to take sides. Regina Dalton Abbotsford

Why do we cover South Asian events? I often wondered why our local media is so dominated by stories and events relating to the East Indian culture despite there being a vast majority in our community who are not interested. They would be far better off promoting themselves in their own newspapers. There are 54 other ethnic nations in Abbotsford who also celebrate many cultural and religious events as well, but they appear to be quite contented with keeping this to themselves. It was Canadian Prime Minister Wildrid Laurier who proclaimed that when immigrants come to Canada they must assimilate themselves and make every effort to become true Canadian Citizens. He stressed that there be no tolerance towards divided allegiances or parallel societies, and if anyone says they are Canadian but is something else, they are not Canadian. The Sikhs and Hindus barely form 13 percent of Abbotsford’s demographic yet politicians such as Ed Fast, Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Mike de Jong and Christy Clark flock to their events to pay homage and pray. They do this for the handsome rewards from locals who will have these events published to create a false impression that they are a major influence in our community. Nothing could be further from the truth, and the only solution for this deceit is to simply discontinue any further paper deliveries to our homes. John Skorupa Abbotsford

Constantly looking at doing things differently AESC, from page A1 the series with Vancouver’s early elimination from the Stanley Cup playoffs despite the fact it is the farm team of the Calgary Flames, a longtime rival of the Canucks. However, Abbotsford attendance averaged 2,389 fans during the Calder Cup series, well below the league average of 4,482. In the regular season, the Heat finished 29th in the 30-team league in average attendance, at 3,545 fans per game. Heat president Ryan Walter was disappointed and perplexed by poor sales during the playoff run. “When the game was on the line, and we’re the only hockey game playing in the [Fraser Valley], it was puzzling,” said Walter. “There’s no excuses. We’re looking for solutions to those problems, but I think the people in the building felt that, too.” Fans who did attend expressed disappoint-

ment the rest of the community didn’t turn out, Walter said. “We’re not happy about the crowd. No one is,” he said. Why season ticket holders didn’t buy seats for the series is a mystery, said Pizzuto, speculating that the enthusiasm of an inaugural playoff run in 2009 is hard to repeat. The city and the Heat management meet on regular basis in an effort to try and deal with the attendance issue, he said. “Not a week goes by when we don’t look at how to do things differently,” said Pizzuto, adding that building a business takes hard work. “We have to build it one fan at a time and will get there, but we have to be patient to do it.” The 2011/12 shortfall follows a Heat bill of $1.37 million last season and $450,637 for the inaugural 2009/10 year. – WITH FILES FROM THE VANCOUVER SUN

MAY IS CNIB VISION HEALTH MONTH

Seeing beyond vision loss BY TAMARA TEDESCO

“How are you going to be able to do this? How are you going to be able to bath a baby?” Those were some of the questions Shea Anker’s parents asked when she told them she was starting a family just over 10 years ago.

That’s because she’s been blind all her life.

When the school day’s done, Shea returns home and makes dinner. With the help of specialty kitchen gadgets, she makes everything from chocolate chip cookies to spaghetti to stew.

It’s small adaptations like this, she says, that allow her to run a smooth household and get everything done in a day, and she’s learned a lot of them from CNIB. In British Columbia, less than 10 per cent of funding comes from provincial government sources, and CNIB relies on charitable donations to provide services at no cost to people who are blind or partially sighted. To make a donation or learn more about how you can support CNIB programs and services in B.C., visit cnib.ca or call the toll-free CNIB Helpline at 1-800-563-2642.

Then it’s time for homework. First she does her own – using a computer with special software that reads aloud what is on the screen – then she helps the boys with theirs.

As a youth, Shea came to CNIB (Canadian National Institute for the Blind) a charity that provides support to Canadians who are blind or partially sighted. There, CNIB specialists taught her to read braille and to walk using a white cane, and her parents received valuable guidance on how to best support their daughter as she grew up without vision.

She says that, at times, the visual part of the boys’ homework makes it challenging for her to help them if they get stuck. But she always finds a strategy around it.

Now a single mother with two boys, 9 and 10, the challenges of motherhood are a bit different for Shea than for most parents.

When preparing for spelling tests, for example, she receives the word lists from teachers by email ahead of time. Then her computer reads the words to her so she can do practice tests with the boys.

Then 31, Shea faced many questions like these from the people in her life – people who knew she was responsible, caring and attentive enough to be a great mom, but who also knew it may be tough for her to raise a baby.

Shea starts her day like many others, up at the crack of dawn getting ready for the day. After preparing breakfast and lunches she sends her boys to school, and then goes to school herself. She’s in her third year of a major in English and history at the University of Northern British Columbia.

During Vision Health Month, CNIB is challenging British Columbians to take care of their eyes so that we can eliminate avoidable sight loss.

Blind woman thrives as mother and student

CONTROL WEIGHT = CONTROL BLOOD SUGAR By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD.

Long term weight control without controlling blood sugar is destined to fail. This is why we have an epidemic of obesity. How it works: Stops the “roller coaster” of cravings and appetite to eat foods like sugar and starches that cause high blood glucose levels, which then brings on your pancreas to automatically pump insulin into your blood stream. Subsequently the high level of insulin precipitates low levels of blood glucose and cravings for more sugar and starchy carbohydrates (breads, noodles, crackers, cereals, french fries) which you don’t need and therefore it goes into unwanted fat storage and being overweight. Experts now recognize these basic facts.#40 Bell Blood Sugar Imbalance helps to stop this vicious cycle and puts you in control. Dr. Hammond says this natural product works 10 times better because it reprograms our brain and pancreas to release insulin in a controlled manner. Helpful non-fattening eating suggestions in the box. Fibers and exercise like walking are beneficial and help after you control the underlying basic blood sugar imbalance. #40 ! Working in a health food store I heard people saying how well #40 works. I tried it myself. Finally a product that controls my blood sugar much better than what anything else we had in the store. Thank you for helping people around the world. Irene M. Urdialez, 43, Brynton Beach, FL ! My medical indicated pre-diabetic. I took #40. When re-tested readings were fine. This helped my metabolism and my weight is down 25 lbs. I am grateful to the health food store people for their advice. Michael O’Brien, 60, Rutherglen, ON ! I finally found the right approach to lose weight. I tried for 3 years to lose weight. After starting #40 my blood sugar is stable now. I was able to stop overeating and lost my excess weight. Sara John, 40, Kitchener, ON ! I was struggling for 15 years with weight gain in spite of diet and exercise. I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. I will forever be grateful to the store manager that explained to me to take #40 and read suggestions to avoid fattening foods. I lost 70 lbs. My fasting blood sugar is now 92. My 2 hour post meal glucose level is now 92 as well. My new shape raised my self-esteem and gave me immeasurable peace of mind. Karen Maples, 55, Clarksville, TN !Diabetic eliminated high blood sugar levels with #40. My readings were 140 to 200 and are now 99 to 122 range where I want it to be. Before I bought about 10 different supplement that were more expensive and didn’t work as well. I also lost some weight. A great improvement in my health and daily living.

Diversity ride gets rolling at schools & MRC May 22 T

he second annual Cycling4Diversity rolls out at 8 a.m. from Mission’s Griner Park on May 22, to take the message of diversity and acceptance to schools in the district and across the Lower Mainland on a 200-kilometre, four-day tour. Spearheaded last year by Times’ diversity columnist Ken Herar, the effort has led to the now-official Cycling4Diversity Week, on from May 20-26. It was proclaimed earlier in April by Abbotsford West MLA and Minister of Health, Mike de Jong. He l p i n g h i m a l o n g a re C 4 D executive coordinator Sarina Di Martino Derksen, and Dwayne De Souza owner of Kapesh Media, who designed the group’s logo. Herar began the campaign last year to educate young people, in response to the ongoing intolerance and misinformation he would encounter from time to time. He said about one dozen cyclists will begin the tour in Mission, where he and others will visit eight schools to talk about racism, tolerance and diversity. “We’ve got good support from the Mission RCMP, the Abbotsford Police and the fire department,” he said. The tour will continue on May 22 to several schools in Abbotsford, and it will be joined by APD Deputy Chief Rick Lucy and Abbotsford city Coun. Bill MacGregor. Then everyone is invited to take

Business in Vancouver relaunched with redesign

O

ver the past nine months, the 23-yearold award-winning business news publication Business in Vancouver has been undergoing a complete reinvention of its weekly newspaper and website. The result is a news source that’s relevant, contemporary, engaging and contextual in its coverage of key business sectors and the trends that affect Vancouver-based companies. “We knew a crucial first step would be to understand clearly what our readers like, dislike and want. So we carried out in-depth interviews with many members of Vancouver’s business community in order to provide us with a baseline about what BIV should be in 2012” says Paul Harris, publisher of Business in Vancouver. “We’re proud to say that we’re now producing more unique local business news each week than any other publication in Metro Van-

couver. And our journalists have found new ways to present our content – using firstperson narratives, graphic spreads and advice panels to help our readers use BIV as a more effective business tool.” The new BIV newspaper will feature more local business news, profiles, an enhanced data package and more advice from local business experts. In a d d i t i o n , w w w. b i v. com has been given a complete overhaul, dramatically improving its navigation and demolishing the “fixed paywall” that prevented any access to non-subscribers, adopting instead the metered approach favoured by publications such as The New York Times. “This allows subscribers to login and access all our content as usual, while a l s o a l l ow i n g n o n - s u b scribers to access a limited number of content items per month free of charge”

states Harris. “ We b e l i e v e t h i s n e w approach will help build BIV’s online presence and significantly improve the user experience.” Business in Vancouver is an award-winning weekly newspaper serving Greater Vancouver since 1989. Targeted at business decision-makers, it provides local business news and information to the Lower Mainland’s business leaders every week.

CRASH STRATA STRUCK – SUBMITTED PHOTO/FOR THE TIMES

Residents at a strata complex at 33020 Maclure Road in Abbotsford are asking for public assistance in solving an apparent smash-and-run. Resident Trevor Gleddie says the strata’s entrance sign and brick wall (left) were destroyed May 10 between 10:15 p.m. and 10:35 p.m. Repair costs are estimated at $6,000. Anyone with information is asked to call Gleddie at 604-850-5634.

Council gives course relief LEDGEVIEW, from page A6 Braun suggested denying the funds would put pressure on the society to make the changes to make the course successful. “There are more important things we could be doing,” said Braun. “I have nothing against Ledgeview but I just think

we have to prioritize.” Gibson suggested that Ledgeview should pay back the $65,000 in rent over time. With some reluctance, Coun. John Smith approved the funding for Ledgeview. It was unlikely the city could operate the course for less money than the Ledgeview society and its volunteers did, he said.

danger. Abbotsford fisherman Christopher Vang died along the Fraser close to Chilliwack last September in similar circumstances. Drinking doesn’t mix with driving or boating, noted Hollingsworth. “Impaired driving and impaired operation of vessels has proven to be a problem in the past. We want to ensure the safe operation of these vehicles and vessels to prevent tragedies from happening,” she said. Long weekends always bring a spike in vehicle crashes on the roads and highways, according to ICBC. Over the past five years, there have been an average of 1,116 crashes and 342 people injured during the May long weekend in the Lower Mainland, including the Fraser Valley. The insurance corporation urged drivers to be realistic about travel times to destinations and allow for delays and heavy traffic. Before heading onto the road, vehicles should be checked and given regular maintenance. Despite the warmer weather, drivers should still be prepared for adverse driving conditions. The warm weather draws out an increased number of motorcyclists and bicyclists and drivers need to maintain at least three seconds of following distance on high-speed roads or behind a motorcycle. Abbotsford Police are also reminding people to take precautions before they leave for vacation to prevent thefts at home, said Const. Ian MacDonald. “Bad guys will take advantage of the fact you are away,” said MacDonald. “Don’t tell the world that you are going to be away via Facebook and social networks.” Residents should ensure their home is locked, valuables secured and alarms are activated before they head out the door.


A18 ❘ FAITH ❘ THURSDAY, MAY 17, 2012 THE TIMES s there a word in our English language more misunderstood – or abused – than love? Think of your favourite song, whatever genre, and it almost certainly will focus on love, or at least a contrived facsimile. Country music emphasizes unrequited love; light rock may be about tormented love; and hard rock often stresses the physical side of love. There is even a station on my satellite radio that is dedicated exclusively to love songs Love is an extremely emotive word but its weight seems to have been diminished by advertising and the media in general. “You’ll love our prices” at Bobby’s Pontiac-Oldsmobile; and a restaurant may exclaim, “A buffet your whole family will love.”

Love: what’s in it for me? You may remember The Love Boat, a TV series in the 1980s which simulated the supposedly romantic environment of a large cruise ship. Relationships on The Love Boat, as I recall, were fleeting and amusing (which was enhanced with a laugh track). On Valentine’s Day the flower shops and chocolate stores teem with shoppers – predominantly husbands – who are picking up gifts for wives who will receive them as symbols of love. When a young man suggests to his girlfriend that he would like to “make love,” she understands his motives and recognizes that if she agrees, there may unfortunately be little genuine love involved.

(although this of course does not excuse their conduct in any way). Genuine love is unconditional. If a spouse, parent or child tells you he or she loves you, it needs no elaboration. “I’ll love you if . . .” is not love at all. Do you feel loved today? Are there one or two people in your life who love you, just the way you are? The Bible is a wonderful guide to the importance and reality of genuine love. In fact there is a verse that says, “God is love. Whoever lives in love lives in God, and God in him.” God’s love for us never changes and is eternal: “Because he loves me (says the Lord) I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.” And, “But God demon-

SIMON GIBSON

Faith that matters We all want to be loved. An article I read a few years ago reported on a group of British psychiatrists who felt 50 per cent of their patients could be released from institutional care if they knew someone loved them. The violent and criminal behavior of many young men today may be attributable in part to the fact they weren’t loved by a caring father

strates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Perhaps the best-known Bible verse, John 3:16, sums it up well: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only son that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.” This verse is for you. Jesus died on the cross – once and for all – to take away your sin (all the bad things you’ve done) and he rose from the dead. You can feel God’s love today by accepting Christ as your Savior. Why not call on him now? His love will be your comfort through the toughest times. ! Simon Gibson attends church in

Abbotsford and writes Faith that Matters for the Abbotsford-Mission Times.

Camellia, hydrangeas, mulch and more

Dear Anne:

I mulched leaves with the lawn mower last fall and spread them on the plant beds in winter. Now it’s time to dig up the garden. Should I rake off all the leaf bits or dig them into the soil? I also spread them around the rose beds, but I’m assuming this is okay? Nikki Stubbs Port Coquitlam

Nikki:

Digging shredded leaves into the soil is fine. You can have problems if leaves are spread on vegetable beds in winter and left as a mulch in spring because slugs like to lay eggs under the leaves and in spring they all hatch. But your roses will appreciate the leafy mulch. Just watch out for slugs.

Dear Anne:

I would like to germinate camellia seeds. Should I soak or perhaps nick them? Marg Sewell E-mail

Marg:

I hope the seed is from your own trees or neighbourhood trees where you can plant it fairly soon after picking it. Germination is much better from fresh camellia seed. You’re right about nicking it and soaking. Immerse the seed for about 12 hours.

ANNE MARRISON

Green thumb Once the seed is soaked, it shouldn’t be allowed to dry out again. The seed should have enough potting mix above it to cover it well and it’s really helpful to add a quarter of an inch (1 cm) of grit above that. You need the grit because camellia seed germinate very slowly and a topping of grit deters moss and bryopytes from taking over the surface. Because the seed should be kept moist, it can be kept outside as much as possible.

Dear Anne:

I bought some enoki mushrooms and trimmed off the bottom part because it had some dirt attached. If I plant this in the ground or pot will it grow some more edible mushrooms? K. Coquitlam

K:

Your enoki mushroom pieces are very unlikely to grow more mushrooms. Mushrooms grow from an extensive network of very

fine underground roots known as mycelium. When mushrooms are cut for sale, the cut is above ground and doesn’t include the mycelium. The mushrooms do release spores from the gills under the cap. Given the right circumstances, the spores could produce baby mushrooms. But this is unlikely when a mushroom is transplanted into strange soil. It’s very likely that specialized soil fungi need to be present in the soil to produce the right circumstances. There are Internet listings from companies selling mushroom logs where mycelium is already present and ready to grow.

Dear Anne:

We’re planning to relocate our hydrangea due to its height. When is the best time to do so and do we have to remove the old flowers?” Nessie Howdon E-mail

to transplant because they have a lot of fibrous surface roots. But you’ll still lose quite a few, which will make it stressful for your hydrangea to support all the top growth. That’s why it would be

best to prune off the old flowers. Also remove any weak, thin stems and some of the oldest stems. Just cut them right down to the ground. You won’t get as many flowers next year, but after

Hennie Drenten-Regoczi performs multiple roles in Droning of Bombers, a play she wrote based on her memories of growing up on a Dutch farm near the German border during the Second World War. unique, but as such it resonates with the area’s many Dutch immigrants. “There were many, many Dutch people that did the same things. After the play [last year], people would come back stage and share their memories,” she said. The play is not just about remembering the war, Drenten-Regoczi said, but remembering that war is “not just black and white.” Even though her family opened their home to evacuees who were fellow countrymen, some would get testy when the food ran low,

she remembers. But she also made friends with a German soldier who was a farmer just like them and lived just on the other side of the border. “He had a little girl just like me, and I became his little friend. He was a very good man,” she recalls. Droning of Bombers plays May 31, June 1 ,2 , 7, 8 and 9 at 7.30 p.m., with Sunday matinées June 3 and 10 at 2 p.m., in the studio theatre at the Chilliwack UFV north campus, 45635 Yale Rd.

Mackenzie cut her acting teeth with Freddy Latham’s ACT group, and took that love of drama to the University of the Fraser Valley to earn a theatre degree in 2009. One of Mackenzie’s past innovative projects was to adapt Kit Pearson’s children’s novel, Awake and Dreaming, for the stage in 2009

Bridie Ella HOWARTH

August 7, 1930 – May 12, 2012 It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that the family of Bridie Howarth announce her passing at 81 years. Mom was born in Dunrea, Manitoba,the oldest of 10 children with whom she enjoyed farm life. Feeding livestock, gardening, housekeeping, childcare and making meals kept her and her sisters busy and would serve her well as she became a wife and mother herself after meeting and marrying Dad in August 1949. Six girls and one boy would come along to complete the family. Mom loved baking, canning, sewing and dancing in her younger years and bowling, watching the Canucks and Blue Jays games, bookkeeping, travelling and family gatherings in her later years. She was a founding member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles in Abbotsford, holding every position but one including becoming Provincial Madam President. Being part of the FOE brought her much joy as she helped give to the community, attended meetings and conferences and made many friends locally and within many others chapters. Predeceased by her husband, Norman, three siblings and grandson, Bryce, she is survived by her children, Sharon (Doug) Enns, Doug (Elaine) Howarth, Brenda Ritchie, Debra (Calvin) Vanderveen, Kathleen (Ray) Van Staalduinen, Janice Howarth (Ken), Denise (Len) Smit, 11 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren, six siblings, and many friends. We will all miss her beautiful smile, her joy of life and the next adventure, her charming, sweet disposition and her encouragement, but most of all, her love. As her kids we have all lost our greatest cheerleader. We love you Mom and are glad your suffering is over. Thank you so much to all the nurses, care aids doctors and staff who cared for mom and made her time at Abbotsford Regional Hospital as comfortable as possible. She appreciated you all so much and so do we. A Memorial Service will be held Wednesday, May 23, 1:00PM at Henderson’s Fraser Valley Funeral Home, 34537 Marshall Road with a luncheon to follow at the Fraternal Order of Eagles Hall, 33868 Essendene Avenue. In lieu of flowers, donations to the ALS Society would be appreciated. Tributes and condolences may be left at www.hendersonsabbotsfordfunerals.com Henderson’s Funeral Home 604-854-5534

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections

Aries March 21 - April 19: Sunday starts a month of short trips, visits, communications, errands, paperwork and details, casual friends and siblings. More importantly, you begin a 13-month cycle of superb luck and expansion in these areas. BUT this luck can be a door to a trap before September. So proceed, but with your wits about you. (E.g., think twice before making that threatening call to your local politician.) Now to August, communications could lead to a) money and/or b) a relationship solution (or a new one) (in either case, it will develop slowly). Be cautious all Wednesday. Saturday’s romantic. Taurus April 20-May 20: The month ahead accents money, spending, selling, earning – and possessions of all kinds, including memories and relationships. Very good luck imbues this area now through early August. Another wave of even bigger luck hits your money pocket mid-June through mid2013. You’re going to be happy! BUT – until Aug. 30, a trap can be disguised as good luck, so proceed carefully. Do not violate your principles and morals in dollar pursuits. Money’s great after 3 p.m. PDT Monday, and Tuesday. Be cautious when driving, talking Wednesday to Friday. Home, food, nature please you, Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: A long, dark night is almost over. It’s been 16 years since your relationships started (from your point of view) rejecting, eluding and opposing you. This reached a peak in 2011/12, as karmic repayment was enforced by the cosmos. It’s not all over yet – and won’t be until Aug. 31 frees you from karma’s grip. But even now, you have begun to mellow and smile. Others are finding you attractive. By June, you enter one of the luckiest years of your life (though it’s better after August). The future’s bright! Your energy, charisma soar early week. Buy nothing Wednesday. Friends, Saturday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Take a well-deserved rest during the four weeks ahead. Look for success in charitable, spiritual, governmental, institutional zones, and in warehouses, assembly lines. Think and act alone – but after you seek advice, find and/or utilize an agent, or enter counselling. Management, administration and delegation of tasks will arise naturally. These themes not only arise during the month ahead, they also contain your best luck for 13 months ahead. However, don’t make any irrevocable commitments (to these zones) before September: be alert, reject temptation. Shop Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your popularity rises. Social delights, entertainment, optimism and joie de vivre flow into your life – not only for the month ahead, but until mid-2013. Take care now to Aug. 30, as this same social arena can hold disappointment or traps if you’re tempted to take advantage. E.g., don’t abandon a lover in order to play the field. Until August, a wish might come true in career or travel zones. From June onward (best after August) a big life wish might come true in romantic, creative, child-oriented or pleasure areas. Joy arrives early week. Caution Wednesday. You soar Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The month and year ahead (13 months) powerfully and beneficially emphasize your career, prestige, relations with higher-ups, and your standing in the community. It’s a complex influence, so be careful now to the end of August. Higher-ups favour you, but you might be tempted to push for too much, too soon – DON’T do anything underhanded to get ahead. You’d create a dead-end. If you meet headwinds, simply wait until September onward. Many Virgos will receive a promotion before mid-2013. Early week, ambitions. Wednesday/Thursday, social joys, barriers. Retreat, rest and plan Saturday.

★★★ I DO things you'll never forget! SUMMER 604-727-8182

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A month of legal, intellectual, far travel, cultural, educational and love themes begins now. There have been many pitfalls for you in these areas for the last 13 months – and more exist, until Aug. 30. Yet these zones are growing luckier and luckier – by now, as long as you don’t push things, you’ll probably just slide past those pits (of temptation, resentful action, etc.). By June, a major massive luck enters these zones, to last through June 2013. But remember, it’s way better after August. Sunday eve to Tuesday emphasizes these areas. Be careful with career, VIPs midweek. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: A month of mystery, changes, commitments, high finance, others’ finances, subconscious promptings and sexual desire begins Sunday. This whole arena has obstructed, delayed and potentially even trapped you over the last 13 months, and it continues this way (though weakly) until the end of August. However, sweet, affectionate vibes have also entered (in April) and support you to August. In June, an even greater luck enters, to last into mid-2013. All’s best after August. If there’s been a divorce, now the “asset wrangling” begins. Early week highlights all this. Caution Wednesday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The 13 months ahead emphasize relationships, opportunities and challenges, relocation, dealings with the public, fame, contracts, negotiations, competition and possible litigation. You might marry, if single; or divorce, if unhappily attached. In all, success, luck and joy come through others – so be eager, a joiner, diplomatic. “Relating” contains pitfalls through August – don’t fall for temptation, skulduggery, or the promise of easy rewards. Proceed carefully. (After August, the luck’s good, pure!) Monday/Tuesday hold clues. DON’T invest Wednesday: protect health.

May 20 - 26, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The week, month and year ahead hold an increase in chores, duties and your employment (or employer) role. Protect your health now to June 2013. (Thighs, hips, lungs, elbows, wrists are vulnerable.) Don’t over-focus on these areas before September – pitfalls exist. (E.g., don’t overdo vitamins; don’t dabble in chores as an excuse to avoid meetings or social environments.) After August, you can luckily plunge into big jobs. Luckily, because you’ll be compensated accordingly. Early week provides clues. Be alert Wednesday: relationships need care! Lucky secrets revealed Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A month of romance, of creative and speculative surges, pleasure, beauty, and fun with kids, begins now. This trend is mixed – good luck, difficult karma – now through August. (E.g., I landed my lover; didn’t realize that he was wanted by every taxman in North America.) Afterward, to June 2013, the influence is purely lucky. So you might want to wait (especially if you were born Jan. 20-25, any year). Your sexual side remains “intense” until July. Monday/Tuesday are romantic. Midweek needs caution with chores, machines, health. Exciting meetings, opportunities Saturday! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The month ahead emphasizes family, property, security, nature, nutrition, stomach, breasts, soul and retirement. These zones are blessed with affection, forgiveness, prosperity and “prestige buoyancy” now to mid-2013.You could move to a better neighbourhood. But until Aug. 30, a skein of traps and dead-ends (though often “pleasant” ones) spreads through this whole area. So be cautious until September. Clues exist Monday/Tuesday. Midweek brings romantic notions. Careful Wednesday: (self?) deception, unpredictability and refusal reign. Chores, machinery are lucky Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-727-3673
