Upfront Pastor pleads guilty to sex offence

Briefly Prosecutors appeal Bacon’s sentence

The Crown is appealing the 12-year jail term imposed on Abbotsford gangster Jarrod Bacon for cocaine conspiracy. Federal prosecutors say B.C. Supreme Court Associate Chief Justice Austin Cullen failed to give due consideration to the principles of denunciation and deterrence in sentencing Bacon. They say the sentence was unfit, considering the seriousness of the offence, the aggravating features and the offender’s degree of responsibility. Prosecutors had sought a 21-year jail term. In a notice of appeal filed last week, prosecutors also argued Cullen erred in failing to make an order of delayed parole ineligibility. They want Bacon to serve half his sentence before applying for parole. On May 4, Bacon was sentenced to 12 years in jail but his net sentence will be seven years and two months after he receives credit for pre-sentence custody. He was convicted, along with Abbotsford resident Wayne Scott, for a scheme to import up to 100 kilograms of cocaine from Mexico. – KEITH FRASER/THE PROVINCE

More than 4,000 runners are expected at this Sunday’s annual Run for Water which starts at Mill Lake Park in Abbotsford.

Run for Water pours it on Fifth race set for Sunday, bigger and better than ever JEAN KONDA-WITTE JKonda-Witte@abbotsfordtimes.com

I

t all started as a dream back in 2007. The Run for Water began as a local event in 2008 in Abbotsford to attract top athletes while, at the same time, raising money and awareness for people in developing countries in desperate need of clean water. Now, five years later, the Run for Water has expanded to include Calgary (in 2011) and has raised more than $500,000 towards building clean water projects in southern Ethiopia. “It’s really surpassed our wildest dreams both with the number of participants and the amount of money raised,” said Ken Baerg, board chairman. There were 650 runners back in 2008, and this year nearly 4,500 participants are expected on race day, Sunday, May 27. “Every single year it has grown and we’re growing again this year. We’re in the top five [runs] in B.C. for registrants,” said Baerg. This is the second year the Run for Water will feature the marathon distance of 42 kilometres. It is one of four Boston Marathon qualifiers in the province, and the Abbotsford run is attracting athletes from all across Canada, the U.S., the U.K. and other countries.

There’s also a half-marathon distance, a 10K run and 5K fun run on Sunday. Something new this year is the Ultra Marathon, a 55K grueling team run along Discovery Trail and the Sumas flats. International expeditionist Ray Zahab, who among other achievements has recorded the fastest land trek to the South Pole and ran across the Sarah Desert, will lead a team of 14 runners — one of whom is Abbotsford city councillor Simon Gibson. “It’s a crazy distance, not one that I would attempt,” added Baerg, of the run which leaves Gardener Park on Saturday at 8 a.m. There is no entry fee for the Ultra Marathon, but each runner raised $1,500 to participate. Another great thing about the Run for Water is that the event has been totally embraced by area schools, said Baerg. In their classrooms students learn about the international water crisis (estimates are that one billion people do not have access to a reliable source of clean water, and that every 19 seconds a child dies for lack of clean water). Students fundraise and many participate in the annual run while several schools (from Vancouver to Kent) also hold mini-runs. “Last year they raised $35,000 in schools, one loonie at a time,” said Baerg. “It’s truly amazing. These kids are really embracing this and it’s encour-

aging to see.” The theme for this year’s run is Envision a Better World, with Envision Financial as the title sponsor and educational partner. The Run for Water Gala is Friday night at 6 p.m. at the AESC and tickets are still available. Check the website at www.runforwater.ca for details. Ray Zahab will be the keynote speaker. All funds raised go to clean water projects in Koshale, Bonke, Ethiopia with HOPE International Development Agency. ◗ Run for Water takes place at Mill Lake Park on Bevan Avenue on Sunday, May 27 with the following start times: 6 A.M.

former Abbotsford pastor and missionary charged with child sex offences pleaded guilty in Abbotsford provincial court on Wednesday. Patrick Marini, 69, pleaded guilty to sexual interference for an incident on Feb. 11 involving a 15-year-old boy. Another charge of sexual assault has been stayed. The court has ordered a psychological assessment and pre-sentence report for Marini before his next court date. The victim’s mother contacted Abbotsford Police about the incident on Feb. 16. Marini is a longtime friend of the family involved, according to APD. In an online Google profile, Marini described his missionary expeditions, and having acted as a pastor for a number of religious organizations, including the Resurrection Life Ministries in Abbotsford. Marini was educated at the Canada Christian College and Seminary and has lived in Ottawa and Saskatchewan, according to his profile. – ROCHELLE BAKER/TIMES

Mill fire likely not linked to dust Blaze destroyed main building, cause unknown MIKE HAGER Vancouver Sun

A

large fire that burned part of an Abbotsford lumber mill to the ground early Saturday morning does not appear to be linked to the wood dust suspected in two fatal mill explosions earlier this year, according to local fire officials. The blaze, which destroyed Absolute Lumber Products’ main building, was visible from kilometres away early Saturday morning. No workers were on site when the fire started sometime before 4 a.m. Saturday and eventually razed a structure that housed forklifts, compressed gas tanks and company offices. Nearby mill machinery used to cut wood into lumber for pallets was spared. “We definitely do know it was not a dust explosioncaused fire,” said deputy

Wo o d c u t u n d e r a n Steve Garg, manager of adjacent structure nearby the mill, said it was lucky remained untouched by that none of the mill’s 15 the flames. to 20 workers were on shift

and that the most expensive machinery was saved. Garg said he didn’t know how much product was damaged or what could have started the fire. The company is talking with its insurance provider and plans to be producing raw material for wood pallets again in about a month, the manager said. Absolute produces over 178 cubic metres, or roughly two and a half 12-metrelong shipping containers, of material daily, according to its website. On April 23, an explosion killed two workers at the Lakeland Mills sawmill in Prince George and injured 22 others. An explosion Jan. 20 at Babine Forest Products in Burns Lake also killed two workers and injured 19. While provincial regulators and industry have not directly linked wood dust to the fatal explosions, WorkSafeBC has ordered sawmills to clean up dust following the most recent fatal blast. Dust from dry, pine beetlekilled timber is also being examined as an exacerbating factor in the two deadly incidents.

Pregnant woman in crash with cop Eight months along, but mom-to-be and unborn baby are fine ANDY IVENS The Province

A

woman who is eight months pregnant survived a two-car collision with a police vehicle speeding to an incident in northern Abbotsford on Saturday afternoon. The 28-year-old woman and her fetus, as well as a 17-year-old female passenger in the Audi A6 she was driving, were all checked out in hospital and released. “The mother and child went for some additional tests [on Sunday], and the latest update at 6:15 p.m. was that everything was looking fine,” said Abbotsford Police Department media

liaison Const. Ian MacDonald. An APD officer was en route to a single-vehicle accident at Sumas Way and Highway 11 around 2:20 p.m. when the officer approached a red light at Riverside Street and Harris Road, MacDonald said in a news release. The officer “was unable to come to a complete stop and continued into the intersection,” said the release. “An Audi A6, driven by a 28-year-old woman from Mission, was travelling westbound on Harris Road with the green light in that same intersection. “The Audi collided with the rear driver’s side of the police vehicle.” The officer was not injured.

The initial accident the police officer was responding to involved a 37year-old woman from Abbotsford in a 1993 Toyota 4 Runner. The SUV left the road when it lost traction in the rain. The driver was trapped in the upside down SUV. “The driver was able to crawl out of the wreck,” said MacDonald. “She wasn’t seriously injured.” ◗ MacDonald said several witnesses to the collision with the police vehicle have provided statements to police, but he asked any witnesses who have not come forward to contact the APD at 604-859-5225.

L

ike the song says, it was a place to go where everyone knew your name. There were regulars, in the restaurant, in the lounge, in the banquet rooms. Now after 77 years, the Bellevue Hotel will close on June 1, when new owner Ken Brooks takes possession. It will shut down this summer for renovations. The date marks the end of a three-generation family dynasty in downtown Mission that offered food, shelter and good times to the community since 1935, when it was first opened by Brad Fletcher’s grandparents. “The emotional aspect hasn’t hit me yet, but I’m sure it will,” said Fletcher. He’s been busy planning a nostalgia day for this Saturday, complete with former employees from past years. “I had to put the old cash register back because the

George and Mildred Fletcher took over the 16-room Bellevue Lodge and café in 1935, although “it was really run by my grandmother,” says Fletcher. Business was good, and by 1949 they built the present-day Bellevue Hotel and added a beer parlour licence. Brad’s dad Bob took over in the 1960s and ran it until he retired in 1993, when he handed the keys to his son. Over the years, the hotel has ser ved great fare to

plenty of regular folk but also to luminaries like prime minister Pierre Trudeau and premier Bill Bennett. In its heyday, there were line-ups to get into the restaurant, and the lounge was busy on Monday afternoons. “But people’s drinking habits have changed. The day of the martini lunches are gone,” he said. But he’s not leaving without a party – you’re all invited to raise a toast to the Fletcher dynasty and take a turn on the dance floor this weekend.

in gloves who began badgering her in English and Punjabi, said Const. Ian MacDonald. The suspect entered the home uninvited and remained there until the woman provided the money she had available, said MacDonald. The suspect fled the scene on foot and the senior called her son who then informed police around 11 a.m. The elderly victim and her son were badly shaken by the

incident, said MacDonald. “The disposition of the suspect right out of the gate was kind of menacing,” he said. “This stranger came to the door in broad daylight and essentially robbed and attacked her.” The woman suffered minor injuries to her arm and received treatment on scene. It’s too early to say if the robber targeted the house knowing a senior was inside, or whether the attack was

random, said MacDonald. Police haven’t had other reports of seniors being robbed at their doorsteps. The suspect is described as a South Asian man, six feet tall with a goatee. He was wearing a baseball cap, a green shirt, blue jeans and black gloves. The APD is working to come up with a composite sketch of the man. Anyone with information should call the APD at 604859-5225 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

Plan could include sustainable Sto:lo logging PARK, from page A1 the mountain as their cultural home. The First Nations have interest in logging on Crown land adjacent to the park, but in sustainable ways that should work with the common vision for the mountain, said Dave Schaepe, an archaeologist with the Sto:lo. Sumas Mountain Interregional Park becomes the eastern anchor for Metro Vancouver’s 33 regional parks and make a seamless connection to FVRD’s parks and trails, said Greg Moore, Port Coquitlam’s mayor and Metro Vancouver chairman. In addition, SMIP is a key component in the Experience the Fraser, a “bold vision” being developed by FVRD, Metro Vancouver and the province to link natural, cultural, historic and recreational amenities with trails and campsites along the river from Hope to the Georgia Strait, he said. “The province recently provided the regional districts $1 million and completed a memorandum of understanding to advance the Experience the Fraser,” Moore added. “We look forward to developing with the

FVRD an overarching park plan which engages all interests. It’s our goal to make Sumas Mountain Interregional Park one of the most loved parks in British Columbia.” Abbotsford’s mayor Bruce Banman noted the cooperative aspect in ensuring the park for current and future residents. As the city grows, “it is critical we make investments like this one [to] pass along the legacy of green space to the next generation,” he said. Several current and past directors and park planners were present for the official announcement of SMIP, which was developed in earnest in the past six years. Now the real work to manifest the vision begins, said Siri Bertelsen, FVRD director of regional programs. Eventually planners will obtain input from stakeholder groups, such as the local naturalists, hikers and mountain bikers who already frequent the mountain’s trails. ◗ For more about the Experience the Fraser, see www.metrovancouver.org and for more mountaintop photos of the event, see our gallery at www. abbotsfordtimes.com.

◗ Opinion

Saying ‘I do’ to gay marriage U

.S. President Barack Obama’s surprise backing of samesex marriage got mixed reviews around the world recently, and I’ve got to wonder if that will hurt him in the polls. I hope not. Contrary to some naysayers, I don’t believe this was just an attempt by the Democratic president to gain needed votes from the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender population – I think he secured those votes long ago. I know there are a lot of people who are passionate about this subject – my own friends and family coming down on both sides of this issue. But Obama’s announcement was definitely met with applause from me – all my biases showing. Of course, we can expect to hear a lot more on this subject in the coming weeks and months – both nay and yeah. We’ll have the fundamentalist Christians and severe right-wing contingent explaining how this is a move by a “degenerate” segment of our population to undermine the institution of marriage and destroy the sanctity of family. In contrast, we’ll hear highpitched screams of glee from the LGBT component of society, reiterating their argument that it’s long overdue. Since this is an opinion piece bearing my name, I’ll let you in on my bias – sprinkled with a little bit of gay history. I believe this was an incredibly bold move on Obama’s part. He is the first sitting U.S. president to come out – shall we say – officially in support of gay marriage.

ROXANNE HOOPER

Be our guest “It is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think same-sex couples should be able to get married,” Obama said. While Barack is sure to take a lot of heat on this, and it may – as I alluded before – cost him the presidency, I believe this shows great character, and it shouldn’t come as a huge shocker to anyone following this man’s career. It is actually reflective of the work he started as a civil rights attorney in Chicago in the 1990s. Since he began his reign as prez he’s continued to be a powerful spokesperson for the all underdogs – including homosexuals. He’s been vocal on several other gay rights issues. For instance, he took a huge step for human rights when he repealed the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” military policy, not to mention his efforts and influence on hate crime legislation and the support of hospital visitation rights for same-sex couples. But I’m willing to bet many of his advisors weren’t in favour of this latest move, especially in an election year. So kudos to Obama, a revolutionary man! Gay rights have come a long way in our lifetime. A year after Obama was born, Illinois became the first U.S. state to decriminalize homosexual acts between consenting adults. When I was

two, Canadian Prime Minister Pierre Elliot Trudeau legislated the state has “no right or duty to creep into the bedrooms of the nation.” Then, one of the most pivotal events – often referred to as the beginning of the gay movement – came in 1969 with the Stonewall riots where a group in New York finally fought back against ongoing government-supported police raids of establishments catering to homosexuals. That same year, homosexuality was made legal in Canada. And like most “liberal” issues, the U.S. followed suit a few years later, when in 1973, the American Psychiatric Association removed homosexuality from its list of official mental disorders. A few years later, it became illegal in Florida to discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation, and soon that law, too, spread worldwide. Fast forward to 1989, and Denmark became the first country to legalize same-sex marriages. Since then, Belgium, Argentina, Sweden, Spain, Norway, South Africa, Iceland and the Netherlands, as well as eight provinces and one territory in Canada legalized same-sex marriage. Even a few states have ventured out on that limb. I’ve never asked for special – just equal – rights. So I express my personal gratitude to Obama and others who have fought to give us those equal rights, including an ability to legally share our love and life with someone of the same gender. ■ Roxanne Hooper is the assistant editor of the Langley Advance.

ick Hansen’s smile is charismatic and infectious. It was a focus of attention 25 years ago when he first rolled through the Fraser Valley in May 1987. It is still talked about today. That smile and, of course, his extraordinary 19851987 Man In Motion world tour that saw him travel 40,000 kilometres through 34 countries over 26 months – and raise $26 million for spinal cord research and development. The 25th Anniversary Relay retraced the Canadian segment of the tour, and covered 12,000 kilometres, with stops in 600 communities in nine months, from Newfoundland to B.C. It ended at BC Place on May 22, exactly 25 years from when he wheeled into the same stadium on May 22, 1987, and was hailed as an international hero. In the 25 years since that inspirational day, the Rick Hansen Foundation has raised $245 million for spinal cord research, rehabilitation and quality-oflife initiatives. Hansen is still inspiring and motivating disabled and able-bodied people of all ages. His gracious and constant smile has remained ever-present throughout this current tour 25 years later. Hundreds of spectators are greeting him with cheers and applause at every stop along the way. Many have told him they had seen him 25 years earlier, and that they still love him. Not much has changed in a quarter of a century, as far his popularity is concerned. However, much has changed in regards to accessibility since the last time he rolled by. Today, public buildings, streets with curb cuts, wheelchair ramps to businesses, and other features are being incorporated into building design, all with accessibility in mind. We’ve made great progress in Abbotsford, Mission, and other communities across Canada and around the world – but we are not quite there yet.

Grave robbers show how low we go Editor, the Times:

To the thief or thieves that stole the metal flower vase holder from my wife’s grave: I would imagine that the metal vase holder would fetch all of about 25 cents at current prices, from an unscrupulous scrap metal dealer. You must be hard up indeed to come into a cemetery and steal such a valuable item. I often have wondered just how low some people can sink, and now I know. To you and your ilk, absolutely nothing is to be left untouched if you can see a few pennies in it for yourself. Being the type of person you are, you will probably not have any concerns about those who steal from wherever they eventually plant you. I find it difficult

to understand how someone could be like you. You must even despise yourself. The fact that cowardly slugs like you exist is a new revelation to me. I hope you put the 25 cents to good use. It probably contributed to the purchase of a bottle or drugs. R.A. Klassen Abbotsford

Try gathering info during an emergency Editor, the Times: On Friday, May 4 at approximately 2:45 p.m. we had to call 911 and B.C. Ambulance came to our home to treat my wife Vi for a sudden medical problem. During the service provided in our home, her prescription eyeglasses were removed and are now miss-

Bike to Work kicks off with BBQ I

t’s that time again, time to dust off the old twowheeler and get ready for Bike to Work Week, May 28 to June 3. “There’s not many better ways to wake up in the morning before work, and unwind after work, than cycling and enjoying the fresh air and outdoors,” said Terri-Lynn Gifford, program coordinator of Bike to Work Fraser Valley. “Cycling is fun, encourages physical activity and is an environmentally-friendly way to commute.” This year more than 20 communities in B.C. have jumped on the Bike to Work bandwagon which is aimed at introducing cycling as a viable and enjoyable commuting option. In 2011, 460 people participated in the Fraser Valley and saved approximately 4,551 kg in greenhouse gases from entering the Earth’s atmo-

sphere, and more than a third were first-time commuter cyclists. Gifford urges cyclists to be safe and ride respectfully. “Cyclists have to abide by the same rules of the road as cars. Make sure you obey stop signs and other traffic control devices. Make eye contact with, and send a friendly wave to vehicle drivers to ensure they see you and you see them.” To motivate participants to saddle up and take part, Life Cycles Bike Shop has donated a commuter prize package worth more than $1,000 and Cap-it Abbotsford is donating a vehicle bike-rack estimated at over $500. Cyclists need only to bike to work for one day next week and report the number of kilometres biked in order to qualify for the prize draw. To qualify for the prize draw register at www.biketo-

MAY IS CNIB VISION HEALTH MONTH

Seeing beyond vision loss Barbara knows first-hand how valuable these services are to her granddaughter and others who are living with a loss of sight.

BY TAMARA TEDESCO

Barbara Korsvoll, of Nanoose Bay is enjoying an adventurous retirement. She loves to golf, goes to the sunny south for the winter, and likes to ride a motorcycle with her husband. If there’s one thing she knows, it’s the importance of living life to the fullest. That, Barbara says, is why she recently began supporting CNIB (Canadian National Institute for the Blind), a charity that gives Canadians who are blind or partially sighted this very opportunity every day.

Although Barbara has a granddaughter who is blind, she says she just realized the extent of the programs CNIB provides. “Funny enough, I was reading something about CNIB in the paper,” Barbara explains. “I found out quite a few things I didn’t know before, like how CNIB relies so much on donations to run its programs. I always just assumed that CNIB gets most of its funding from the government, and it turns out it’s the other way around” she says.

She’s right. In British Columbia, CNIB receives less than 10 % of its funding from provincial government sources, and the charity relies heavily on private donations to provide specialized programs and services at no cost to more than 18,000 clients living with vision loss in the BC-Yukon region.

B A M B O O

It’s because of the help CNIB has given her granddaughter and her family that Barbara has decided to give back to the organization. She is now a proud member of CNIB’s Partners in Vision program, through which she donates $25 each month to help other British Columbians who are blind or partially sighted. Designed to support the ever-increasing demand for CNIB services, Partners in Vision allows people like Barbara to make a lasting difference in the lives of people with vision loss right in their own community.

“CNIB did such a good job of teaching her to do everything from cooking to using a special computer to getting around on public transit that when she announced that she was moving to the big city by herself, I knew that she would be just fine” Barbara says. “There was never anything I thought she couldn’t do.”

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

THE TIMES THURSDAY, MAY 24, 2012

‘Need to stop looking at drug users through one lens’ NEEDLES, from page A1 final report is scheduled to come before council on Monday, May 28. Chrissy watches people flee down the alley and notes they’re worried about being hassled by police. She’s unequivocal about what she thinks of a bylaw that treats addicts as if they are less than human and exposes them to the increased risk of disease and infection. “It sucks,” she says. “People are still taking water from puddles and using alcohol to try and clean up old syringes. It grosses me out.” Addicts who use dirty syringes or broken glass crack pipes are at greater risk of contracting hepatitis C, HIV and methicillin resistant staphylococcus aurous (MRSA), an antibiotic resistant bacterium responsible for a number of infections, said Chrissy, a former lab technologist. Fraser Health, pointing to the city’s high rates of hepatitis C transmission and hospital admissions for street drug overdoses, has also been pushing the city to establish harm reduction measures and recently submitted a needle exchange program plan. The city can’t continue to punish addicts who aren’t prepared to get treatment, Chrissy says. “Not everybody is ready at the same point and time [to give up drugs] and you can’t penalize some-

one just because they’re not ready,” she observes. “Nobody has to drink out of a filthy glass at a bar just because they are alcoholics.” A crack user, Chrissy has been up for two days but she wanted a bunch of plastic containers she can use to safely collect people’s dirty syringes. “There’s no reason people should be poked with sharps,” she notes. “I might be high and flailing but I’m still respectable,” she finishes with a laugh.

Service providers Mariner James, the coordinator of the PHS mobile exchange, said the Vancouver organization’s van has been travelling to Abbotsford weekly since October 2011. The PHS, which manages the Downtown Eastside’s InSite, or supervised injection site, decided to drive out after people from Abbotsford came into Vancouver to obtain quantities of harm reduction supplies they couldn’t get locally. The organization has submitted an application to formally set up a needle exchange in Abbotsford. They are not the only group resisting the city’s bylaws. The Supporting Wellness and Reducing Harm Committee (SWaRH) is a group of Abbotsford community organizations that to varying extents have been discreetly distributing needles since

2005. Brian Gross, SWaRH chair, said the coalition will continue to better co-ordinate their harm reduction services to stem disease regardless of what Abbotsford council decides about the bylaw. “Whether the bylaw is in place or not, Fraser Health has indicated there will be seed money to help with training and capacity building,” said Gross. The group includes Abbotsford Community Services, BC/Yukon Association of Drug War Survivors, the Women’s Resource Society of the Fraser Valley, the 5 and 2 Ministries and Positive Living Fraser Valley Society. Barry Shantz of the Abbotsford chapter of the Drug War Survivors hopes to establish a “revolutionary” peer-dominated distribution model that will be emulated around the world. Accountability would be built into the system to overcome the challenges of paying addicts to carry out a prescribed set of tasks, Shantz said. The goal is to pursue harm reduction but also ensure the city’s most vulnerable populations feel cared about, valued and have a role to play in the community, added Gross. “We need to stop looking [at drug users] through just one lens,” he said. “We are trying to focus on areas where they are dependable and can contribute.”

Eye Thermage Q & A Question: I find that my eyes are looking tired all the time.The skin under my eyes has thinned out and I have lots of fine lines developing …what can I do to improve my appearance without undergoing surgery? Natalie, Abbotsford

Three simple summertime tips for healthy vision W

ith warm weather just around the corner, most Canadians are getting ready to get outside again. But summer days can also bring sun, sand and sweat – and if you wear glasses or contact lenses, this can be the perfect recipe for irritated eyes. Optometrist, Dr. Tod McNab, has a few easy tips to keep your eyes healthy this summer: • Have some shady activity: You’ve heard it before – invest in a good set of sunglasses to protect your eyes from harmful UV rays. Talk to your eye care professional about prescription sunglasses or consider switching to a contact lens you can comfortably wear underneath a pair of UV-blocking shades. • Try a new multi-purpose solution: Summer days often turn into summer nights, but going from beach to barbecue shouldn’t be impacted by contact lens discomfort. “Some contact lens wearers find their eyes get irritated or dry after a few hours,” says McNab. “But, there is a contact lens solution that can help make lens wear easier. Biotrue multi-purpose solution has a pH that matches tears and uses a lubricant called hyaluronan (HA). HA, which occurs naturally in the body, can hold up to 1,000 times its weight in water and helps keep lenses moist and comfortable throughout the day.” • Brace your beach bag: Sand and dirt can easily irritate eyes. Keep germs at bay by packing hand sanitizer and pre-moistened

Answer: There are many options available to improve the ‘tired look’. Eye Thermage improves skin tone and texture while effectively tightening and contouring the skin for an overall younger appearance. Results are long lasting, subtle and improve over time. Botox and Fillers can be used to restore lost fullness and enhance facial contours. The use of a good eye cream will help restore the elasticity of the delicate skin around the eyes and reduce visible fine lines. To finish off your youthful appearance, Latisse™ can be used to enhance your own eye lashes to make then look fuller, darker and longer.

– NEWS CANADA/FOR THE TIMES

A wide-brimmed hat and UV-blocking shades go a long way to protecting eyes in summer. towelettes for emergency clean-ups. McNab recommends carrying an extra pair of glasses in case you need to remove your contacts, a spare lens case, and a travel-size bottle of contact lens solution to disinfect and store your lenses. “Always come prepared with a multi-purpose solution that provides excellent disinfection,” he says. Don’t forget a wide-brimmed hat or visor and UV-blocking shades to protect your eyes from sun and debris, and a moisture-wicking headband to keep sweat out of your eyes. ◗ More information is available online at www.bausch.ca.

But there is something that can be done to help prevent vision loss caused by UV, says Dr. Gordon. “The best line of defence for both kids and adults is a pair of quality sunglasses with at least 99 per cent UVA and UVB protection,” he says. “And those sunglasses should be worn year-round, even in cloudy weather, because UV rays are present at all times.” To help spread that message across Canada, CNIB is

ost of us know that UV rays from the sun can damage our skin, but few realize that those same rays can damage our eyes and lead to permanent vision loss – and fewer still know their children’s eyes are at risk too. “UV rays have a cumulative effect over time and can lead to eye diseases that can cause serious vision loss,” says Dr. Keith Gordon, vice president of research at CNIB. “CNIB has been carrying that message to Canadians for years – but many people still don’t realize that children need to protect their vision from UV damage as well.” According to Dr. Gordon, children in particular need protection, as their eye tissues are more susceptible to sun damage and they tend to be outdoors more often. Excessive lifetime exposure to UV rays has been linked to the development of age-related macular degeneration (AMD), cataracts and other eye conditions, which is why it’s never too early for kids to wear sunglasses out-

Tiffany tossing for Canada in Mexico Surprise proposal at track meet thrills crowd in Oregon JEAN KONDA-WITTE JKonda-Witte@abbotsfordtimes.com

F

rom her first throw, Tiffany Perkins just knew that day would be different. A personal best of 51 metres in her initial javelin throw at the Kamloops Centennial Track and Field Meet last Sunday led to a second throw of 52.80m, another ‘best’ and good enough to land the Abbotsford athlete on Team Canada and a trip to Mexico in July. “It was looking good right from the start,” said Perkins, a 2009 W.J. Mouat grad. Perkins will now compete for Canada at the NACAC (North American, Central American and Caribbean) championships in Guanajuato, Mexico, July 6-8. The 20-year-old has devoted a good part of her life to the javelin and it’s paid off. In 2010 she competed in the World Junior Track and

– FILE/TIMES

Tiffany Perkins of Abbotsford has her sights set on a medal for Team Canada at the NACAC championships in Mexico. Field Championships in Moncton, N.B. where she placed 11th with her longest throw being 48.48m. “It was a success for me,” she said, satisfied with her personal best. Now 2012 is turning out to be a banner year for Perkins. With a spot

on the national roster, and an eye on the 2016 Olympics, Perkins is also getting married in August. A surprise proposal from her fiancé Michele Matteazzi at a track meet in Oregon three weeks ago sealed the deal.

“I thought he was in Canada. He totally had me fooled,” she said. Right after she competed in the javelin, Matteazzi appeared, wearing a suit, and in front of 10,000 people packed into the stadium, surprised her with a proposal.

“I could barely move, think, speak or even breathe,” said Perkins, recalling the moment. “The crowd around us, as well as people in the stadium, were all watching. He got down on one knee and asked me if I would marry him. I had a huge smile on my face. I put my hands on his to brace myself because I could not even stand.” After she said ‘yes’, the entire crowd started cheering, she said. The two had been friends since childhood and dated for three years but the engagement was a complete surprise, said Perkins. She cried when she called her family with the special news. Now with a wedding to plan and training to pursue, Perkins’ plate is pretty full. “I have five weeks ’till [NACAC] to perfect as much as I can and be as consistent as I can,” she said. Coming up, she’ll compete in the Harry Jerome meet at Swangard Stadium June 2-3 and the Canadian nationals in Calgary June 30, before going to Mexico the following week. But when asked what she was most excited about, she paused and said, “the wedding.”

Twisters dig deep at Delta Invitational; come away with cash

T

he youngest Twisters gymnasts from the women’s competitive team had their turn to shine May 11-13 at the Delta Invitational. These athletes competed in the KIP 2 category. Several of the older athletes from the men’s and the women’s teams competed as well. For those going to nationals at the end of the month, it was a good opportunity to polish their skills.

They competed at an event called ‘cash and carry,’ which is judged differently than usual competitions, and in which the athletes have the opportunity to win a few hard-earned dollars. Forty athletes from different levels and age groups competed in the men’s cash and carry. The top three on events and the top six allaround won money. Twenty-nine athletes, including some of the best in Canada, competed on the women’s side. They were Provincial Level 5 or higher. Twisters athletes shone again and came away with some extra cash. Results are:

From Abbotsford: Emma Doede: gold on bars and all-around, silver on beam and floor (tie).

Megan MacLellan: gold on vault, bronze on beam. Dawson Friesen: tied for gold on pommel horse, tied for 6th on vault, 6th all-around. Cohen Kiers: 4th on horizontal bar, tied for 5th on vault, 5th on parallel bars, 7th allaround.

From Chilliwack: Leanne Hellewell: silver on bars and allaround; bronze on vault and floor. Ericka Van den Brink: silver on vault. Heather Vanhouck: gold on floor. Marquita Morison: 7th all around in the cash and carry; silver on beam, bronze on bars and all-around in the National Open division. Zachary Clay: gold on vault.

From Mission:

Zoe Rumsby: gold on beam, silver (tie) on floor, bronze on bars and all-around. Alexandra Robson: 4th on floor, 7th allaround. Hannah Wood: 8th all-around. Steven Chaplin: bronze on rings, 4th on vault and all-around, tied for 4th on parallel bars, 5th on floor.

From Langley:

Aidan Daniell: 7th on rings, tied for 11th all-around. Jonathan Osers: silver on floor, tied for 4th on rings.

Olympic gymnast Ken Ikeda of Twisters is the anchor of a strong men’s artistic gymnastics contingent at the 2012 Canadian Gymnastics Championships May 22-26 in Regina, Sask. For Ikeda this will be his 18th Canadian championship in his very successful career. He will be looking to impress as Canada is sending only one male gymnast to the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Joining Ikeda is fellow national team member from Twisters Zachary Clay. Also on Team B.C. from Twisters are: Steven Chaplin, Mission; Zachary Clay, Chilliwack; Dawson Friesen, Abbotsford, Andry Friesen, Abbotsford; Nicolas Garfias, Abbotsford; Cohen Kiers, Abbotsford and Marquita Morison, Chilliwack.

Cody Brown, from Mission City Boxing Club, is a three-time Canadian champion after defeating the top boxers in his 54 kg weight class at the nationals in March. With a record of 46 wins and five losses, Cody, 15, of Deroche, started boxing when he was just 10, taking after his older brother, Jessy. At age 12, Cody was one of the youngest boxers to compete at the Canadian nationals, where he fought competitors who were 14 and 15 years of age. He came away with a silver medal that year and the next three years he won gold. Cody is also a four-time provincial champion and a twotime Golden Gloves winner. Cody’s next goal is to win the Canadian National Championship for the fourth time and then fight internationally.

f you have ever felt compelled to write to your local Member of Parliament over an issue that really irks you, but haven’t, a group of artists from Mission are now giving you an incentive. They are asking people to write a letter of opposition to Enbridge’s northern gateway oil pipeline project to their MP or local newspapers, then submit a copy of the letter into a draw to win one of the four prints seen on this page. “I’m doing this because I really feel strongly this is a dangerous proposal. I’m sick of stewing in depression at home, and I want to put my feelings into action,” said Jennifer Clark, who is embarking on this activism along

Write a letter opposing the Enbridge pipeline project and enter to win this art. Clockwise from top, the pieces are by Don Li-Leger, Bonnie Dobbin, Reuben Kambeitz and Jennifer Clark. Draw date is June 2. See www.jlcstudio.com for details. with her painter husband Reuben Kambeitz, as well as Bonnie Dobbin and Don Li-Leger, a well-known artist from White Rock. Although the Harper government has tagged those opposed to the pipeline project as “radicals,” Clark insists she’s just “a normal person.” “I’m not a radical. I care. This is the first time I have stepped up to say ‘this is crazy,’ ” she said.

The group believes there are many others “stewing at home” who just need a reason and channel through which to speak, and now is the time for them to act. “People need to speak up against large corporations such as these that are shaping our world now and for the future,” Clark said. She notes she and many other artists draw on nature for inspiration.

Clark also has a personal impetus. She had breast cancer in 2010, at the age of 31. She attributes her illness to many factors, including an increasingly polluted environment. “I made a promise to myself that if I got better, I would get engaged to protect our environment and wildlife. Without that, we are nothing.” The draw date for winning letters is June 2. Go to www.jlcstudio.com.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The big chores continue but the overall scene – and your mood – has grown more lively, conversational, restless and travel-prone. Your curiosity will grow over the 13 months ahead (powerfully during this June) and introduce you to some new, simpatico people and ideas. If your hard work is producing extra money, store it away – September (into February 2014) will bring a bit of belt-tightening. Sunday’s romantic, pleasurable. Tackle chores Monday/Tuesday. Midweek brings relationships – hard Wednesday, great Thursday (morn). Golden mysteries, intimate urges Friday/Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Chase money – your financial fortunes are on the rise this month ahead, but also the entire 13 months ahead. Careful – yield to no temptations, no greed, no unrealistic promises, before September. Your romantic urge is still powerful (to early July – but especially this Monday/Tuesday) so you might attract a sensual affair. Your social life, friends, light romantic prospects, are on the verge of a huge, long (14-year) upswing – so enjoy, appreciate. (And permit yourself to feel better about yourself.) Work/health midweek. Friday/Saturday bring relationships, tests and open doors. Gemini May 21-June 20: Your energy, clout, effectiveness and charisma have seldom been higher,. Charge ahead, start important projects, appear in person, impress prospects, bosses, peers and lovers. Everyone likes you a lot more than they did a year ago! One caution: reject isolation: act in concert rather than alone, at least before September. Your luck is climbing powerfully. Sunday’s busy, fast. Settle into family, real estate Monday/Tuesday. Romance, beauty and pleasure meet resistance Wednesday, but this night and Thursday morn bring sweet acceptance. Attend to health, work Friday/Saturday.

A31

Cancer June 21-July 22: Retreat, lie low, contemplate and plan. You’ve entered a month of sweet solitude. This is a great time to meditate, to seek counselling, whether in spiritual, financial, psychological or other areas. (These trends – therapy, counselling and self-knowing – will expand and bless you for 13 months.) Be restful; take power naps. Eat and dress sensibly. Chase money Sunday. Short trips, communications and details fill Monday/Tuesday. Heading for home or taking a “security” stance raises opposition Wednesday (but go ahead anyway) and succeeds Thursday. Romantic notions late week? Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Wishes can and do come true. And they will, this week and the next few – and for 13 months! Right now, your “most likely to come true” desires centre on career/ambition, and casual but sweet friendship. By late June onward your wishes will tend to swirl around social joys, light romance, heavy romance, creative projects, speculative risks and travel – and at least one of these will come true – probably two, possibly four! (But remember, don’t let wishes or socializing govern your life before September.) You shine Sunday. Chase money Monday/ Tuesday. Home, relax, late week. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The weeks (and 13 months) ahead boost your career and worldly standing. This might come about through real estate, a move to another neighbourhood, or from the ending of a job role that holds you back. Be ambitious, strive for success, but, before September, don’t engage in anything underhanded, don’t cut corners or heedlessly push higher-ups for recognition. Rest, lie low Sunday. Your energy and clout return strongly Monday/Tuesday. Tuesday night’s lucky. Protect your money Wednesday; chase more Thursday. Errands, talk, travel, details and paperwork succeed Friday/ Saturday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

May 27 - June 2, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The month ahead emphasizes legal, far travel, international, cultural, intellectual, educational and publishing projects, idealism, understanding and love. These are sweet and successful now, will grow increasingly so through June 2013. (But until September, be careful – don’t push these areas, nor seek something for nothing from them. Otherwise, you could harvest expansion rather than luck – e.g., a lawsuit could expand rather than end successfully.) Flirtations Sunday. Retreat, rest, plan Monday/Tuesday. Conquer with force Wednesday, with persuasion Thursday. Money, late week. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The weeks ahead emphasize mysteries, secrets, research or detective work, investment or other financial actions, sexual desires, commitments and consequences, deep health and lifestyle changes. These are mildly lucky now, then extremely lucky September to June 2013. Beware investments or major changes before September: until then, pitfalls exist along this jungle trail (all of them disguised by the thatched grass of pride, temptation or impatience). Humility, alertness keep you safe. Your wishes and joy rise Monday/Tuesday. Avoid government, head office disagreements Wednesday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your relations with everyone have grown affectionate, or at least gracious. That continues, and deepens – from mid-June onward, for a year, relationships will expand, grow luckier, brighter. Some of you single Sages will meet your life partner. Remember, be cautious until September – to then, you might be wise to retain a healthy independence. (E.g., flirt but don’t commit. Well, OK, I know that’s unlike you – so just be honest. Don’t devalue your freedom – until September onward!) Sunday’s mellow, wise. Be ambitious Monday/Tuesday. Wishes, social joys midweek. Rest, Friday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Protect your health: eat, dress sensibly for one year. Expect a huge pile of work – accompanied by affectionate helpers all June and July – and an even bigger mound in the months following. Both are lucky, as they can bring solid financial recompense. (But through August beware committing your whole life to labour, and don’t buy machinery.) Sunday holds mysteries, urges, finances. Wisdom and gentle love fill Monday/Tuesday. Your career scene is action-packedWednesday,productive, even lucky, Thursday. Optimism, social delights and a party mood comes Friday/Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Sunday features relationships.Life’s secrets,sexual urges,subconscious hunches and financial events arise Monday (be only mildly cautious) and Tuesday, when major luck can speed your progress in these zones. Disagreement might mar legal, moral, intellectual, far travel, cultural and communications areas Wednesday, but lucky outcomes seem destined this night to Thursday noon. Be ambitious Friday/Saturday – luck rides with you. Finalize any realty deals now or next week. You are swiftly entering a “love zone” – a Gemini might be involved. It’s big, but it’s best after August. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Focus on home, children, nurturing, nature, garden, soul, stomach, security, foundations (in business, too) and retirement. These zones demand attention now, are sweet and mildly lucky, and will grow powerfully lucky mid-June to mid-2013. (But be cautious through August: don’t let impatience, temptation or hard feelings motivate you.) Do chores Sunday. Relationships, exciting meetings, challenges and opportunities arise Monday/Tuesday: all’s well that ends luckily (Tuesday)! Be cautious with finances, sexual situations midweek. Gentle love, peace, come Friday/Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-727-3673
