Bear bumbles around Abby’s downtown
HONEY BEE DAY
ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com
downtown Abbotsford neighbourhood was all abuzz after a black bear repeatedly visited the Abbotsford Virtual School grounds on Pine Street Wednesday. Neighbours Dianna Holden and Dottie Rosel whose yards are next to the inner-city school grounds first noticed the bear this morning while loading their kids into their cars at 8:30 a.m. “We couldn’t believe our eyes,” said Holden. “I thought maybe at first it was just a large dog but then you could tell by the way it was waddling.”

Homeschoolers Jessica, left, Aaron, Stephen, Elizabeth, baby Nathan, (Benjamin, not pictured) and mom Candace try honey right from the frame, held by beekeeper Mike Campbell, who opened his Gold Farm & Meadery in Abbotsford to mark the Day of the Honey Bee Tuesday.
The two moms were able to snap pictures of the bear in the distance on their cell phones. The bear, which appears to be a juvenile, was nosing around some garbage cans near the school, but didn’t knock them over. Abbotsford Police responded and also sighted the bear, which appeared to eventually wander off. Or so everyone thought. Holden returned home from the store around noon to see that the bear, or another like it, was back. And she wasn’t the only one. see BEAR, page A7
Back-to-back fatal crashes in Abby/Mission ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com
51-year-old Coquitlam man is dead after a crash on Highway 11 in Abbotsford Tuesday afternoon. The fatal collision followed hard on the heels of another vehicular death in Mission on Monday. A Dodge Caravan travelling north on Highway 11 and a southbound red Ford pickup truck collided at the intersection of Bateman Road and Hwy. 11 around 2 p.m. on Tuesday, said Abbotsford Police Const. Ian MacDonald. Investigators believe the truck was attempting a left-hand turn when the crash occurred, said MacDonald. The male driver of the caravan was killed and the 26-year-
old Abbotsford woman driving the truck was transported to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The northbound lanes of Highway 11 were closed into the night as police investigated. Rerouted traffic was also backed up through the afternoon and rush hour. Alcohol and drugs are not believed to be factors in the crash, said MacDonald. However, investigators will be looking into speed and the traffic light cycle at the intersection at the time of the crash, he said. It is too early to say whether charges are being contemplated. On Monday, Mission RCMP were called out to a fatal single motor vehicle crash on Dewdney Trunk Road just south of
Welsh Avenue. Several Mission residents called police around noon to report seeing a vehicle had left the roadway. Officers arrived and found 57-year-old David Kernovich dead on scene. It is believed that Kernovich was headed north on Dewdney Trunk Road in his red Ford SUV at the time of the crash, sometime between 11 a.m. and noon. The cause of the crash hasn’t yet been determined and the coroner’s office is also investigating. If anyone has information related to this investigation they are requested to contact the Mission RCMP detachment at 604-826-7161. For more, see www.abbotsfordtimes.com.

Council will send harm reduction issue to public
Police chief addresses local Abby business A few years ago Abbotsford was faced with the Maclean’s magazine headline, Abbotsford, B.C. is Canada’s murder capital, again. But over the past three years, the Abbotsford Police Department has helped the city shed its murder capital title to record a nearly 30 per cent drop in crime. Abbotsford’s Chief Constable Bob Rich will speak at the June 6 Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce l u n c h a b o u t h ow t h a t change came about. He’ll shed light on how the police work to decrease the crime rate and he will share plans the department has for policing in Abbotsford in the coming years. A police officer since 1980, Rich became Abbotsford’s police chief in July 2008. Prior to joining the APD, Rich was with the Vancouver Police Department, where he served as the deputy chief constable of operations. The chamber lunch is June 6 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Sandman Inn, Abbotsford. Pre-registration at www. abbotsfordchamber.com. – STAFF REPORTER

bbotsford council made it clear Monday night that it won’t be making any decisions about the city’s anti-harm reduction bylaw until it hears from city residents. The council’s discussion about the bylaw was limited but Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman took the opportunity to publicly chastise Fraser Health for its lack of detox facilities in the community. City staff completed a technical review of the 2005 zoning bylaw banning the provision of services to drug addicts such as needle exchanges or safe injection site and presented a report at the Monday council meeting. Harm reduction advocates and critics also addressed the council about whether it should retain or toss the controversial bylaw. David Portesi, public health director for Fraser Health, attended to give the council an overview of a recently proposed needle exchange program should council repeal the amendment in the zoning bylaw. The first phase of the proposed plan would involve engaging community stakeholders such as the police, the city and service providers, Portesi said. Should the plan proceed, it did not involve setting up a supervised injection site in Abbotsford, he stressed. Coun. Henry Braun asked Portesi whether or not the proposal would also include detox or rehabilitation services. Portesi noted he could not speak to any additional future detox or treatment programs in Abbotsford as it fell under the mandate of a different branch of Fraser Health, with the Mental Health and Substance Use Services. There are no fixed detox services in Abbotsford but mobile units serving the entire FHA region are available to attend private homes and residential beds, he added. Banman, who has gone on record

Salvation by two Steves
ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com
olin James Lewis doesn’t remember anything about his own death. But on Monday night, the 73-yearold husband, father and grandfather was grateful to stand beside the Abbotsford Fire and Rescue chief and mayor at city hall and hand out commendations to the six men responsible for saving his life. Lewis was travelling in a van with his wife Jaqueline, daughter Sharon and son-in-law Steve Stewart on April 17 when without warning, he went into full cardiac arrest. Stewart’s first thought was to continue driving to the hospital but his wife said there was no time. Stewart pulled the van into the parking lot of the Sevenoaks Alliance Church on Gladwin Road and immediately phoned 911 while trying to see to Lewis and manage the rising panic of his wife and mother-in-law. Abbotsford resident Steve Parks was killing 10 minutes in the same parking lot after spontaneously deciding to go pick up his daughter at a nearby school that day. Parks hadn’t been there a minute
before noticing the commotion coming from a van nearby. He ran to the scene to see Lewis slumped in the back seat. The two men hauled Lewis – who was blue with no pulse – out of the vehicle and onto the pavement. Fortunately for Lewis, both Parks and Stewart had just completed or renewed their first aid CPR training within the last four months.
“Oh my God. This guy is dying. Don’t die in front of me.” – Steve Parks
Stewart, a former volunteer firefighter, started chest compressions while Parks got air into their victim’s lungs. Although Stewart had managed emergency situations before, dealing with a family member was nerve rattling. Parks, who had never had to put his CPR skills to the test, was completely panicked that the man in front him might perish. “Oh my God. This guy is dying,” he thought. “Don’t die in front of me.”
But regardless of his interior dialogue, Parks’ reactions were automatic. He fell into his training protocols, even hearing his instructor’s voice in his head. As is common with effective CPR, the two men cracked seven of Lewis’ ribs as they worked to save him. Lewis’s luck did not stop with his initial two rescuers. An Abbotsford Fire Rescue crew doing driver training happened to be just a few blocks away when the 911 call came in. Fire Capt. Jim Durvin and firefighters Tom Dodd, Scott Ellis and Greg Herron descended on the parking lot and relieved Parks and Stewart. Chest compressions continued and a plastic airway tube was fed into Lewis’ throat. Soon after, he got two high-voltage jolts from a portable defibrillator. Lewis gagged, the plastic airway tube flew out of his mouth and his eyes popped open. “What’s going on?” he asked.

Twisters launches $20 million vision campaign Council gives united support for new facility ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com
bbotsford city council unanimously endorsed the Twisters Gymnastics Club’s ambitious $20million expansion plan on Monday night. The non-profit society told council it is bursting at the seams in its current location at Exhibition Park, and now intends to raise millions from the private sector to build a new world-class facility. Twisters hopes to build a 48,000-square foot facility that would include a 12,000sq.ft. gymnastics training centre that will be paired with a recreational centre, a preschool gym, multi-purpose rooms, a cafeteria and viewing area. Currently, the club has than 2,000 gymnasts from Abbotsford, Mission, Chilliwack, Yarrow, Aldergrove, Maple Ridge and Langley – most of whom are between two years and 18 years of age – who are squeezing into its present 9,240-sq.ft. building. The club, which has trained national and Olympic-level athletes, has been working in the older building for 25 years. Twisters is also cooperating with other community partners including the Abbotsford Air Cadets and Agrifair, as
Abby student goes on to Scripps finals Abbotsford Student Mignon Tsai has made it into the semi-finals of the prestigious Scripps National Spelling Bee. Tsai, who attends Chief Dan George Middle School, is one of two Canadian girls among 50 competitors that are advancing following two days of tense competition. Twelve-year-old Jennifer Mong of St. John’s, N.L., is also moving forward. Zhongtian Wang, 11, of Windsor, Ont., was eliminated. In Round 2 of the spelling bee on Wednesday, Mong spelled “limousine” cor-
part of a phased project that will include a master plan to reshape and upgrade the surrounding Exhibition Park. Abbotsford Mayor Bruce Banman and the council were enthusiastic about the plan that sees the gymnastics club responsible for raising the project’s funding. “I commend you on your vision and all the work you’ve done,” Banman told the Twisters building expansion team. “I think it’s a fantastic idea.” The city, which owns the land on where the current and proposed building is located, has committed in principle to waiving $550,000 in development cost charges, permits and service charges when Twisters has raised the funds for the first training centre building. Additionally, the city’s costs of maintaining the exterior of the Twisters’ building and HVAC system would rise from $6,000 to $12,000 annually. The first step of the plan is to raise $2 million to develop a master plan for Exhibition Park and a detailed building design. That will be followed by the construction of the training centre, demolition of the old facility and the construction of the new recreational centre. Each phase of the project will only proceed when the funds are raised through the Twisters capital campaign.

Mom Heather Reyda peers in at her kids Monday while Abbotsford firefighters work to unlock the door. Tow truck companies don’t regularly come for emergencies, says one dispatcher.
Call rescue for locked-in kids CHRISTINA TOTH CToth@abbotsfordtimes.com
n Abbotsford grandmother whose young granddaughters were locked in the family van Monday morning is angry a local towing firm refused their request to break into the vehicle. Susan Reyda said when she called Jack’s Towing for help, she was told they needed $50 cash to come out for the call. When Reyda told the dispatcher she had only $25, she was told to call police or the fire department. “It seems the almighty dollar is more important than saving two little kids,” said Susan, who lives in a basement suite in her daughter’s house. The mom, Heather Reyda, had just put her two girls, Sommer, 3, and Mia, 16 months, into their child seats in the family’s Caravan to go to a dental appointment. “I put the keys, my phone and my purse on the seat. I closed the door and I was walking around to the driver’s side and I heard the locks click,” she said. She realised right away the doors were locked and tried contacting a friend who works with Jack’s Towing, but called the company directly when she couldn’t find him. “I was asking if they could bill me, because I didn’t have any money, but she said no, they had to get paid,” said Heather. The dispatcher
told her to try either the police or fire departments. Grandma Susan phoned back but got the same answer. “It’s crazy, it makes no sense to me,” said Susan Reyda. “There is just too much greed out there and no one has time for people.” But Jack’s Towing dispatcher Amanda says that’s not the case at all. Tow truck dispatchers hear all kinds of stories from people claiming to be in trouble, or promising to pay but don’t, so they have to learn to be discerning. “Once you get burned a couple times, you just don’t respond anymore. It’s the nature of the business,” she said. “So when she told us they had no money, I wasn’t going to send a driver out.” It’s not that Jack’s Towing is without empathy, she said. “I know that every one of my drivers has done a service for people and not take payment. I have kids, the drivers have kids. It’s not our intention to leave kids locked in a car.” The best solution in an emergency is to call police or fire crews. “The fire department has done that for us hundreds of times,” she said, and if they can’t get the door open, they will call Jack’s, which has a contract with the Abbotsford Police and the City of Abbotsford. “If we get a call from them, then we’ll come out right away,” she said.

Conservation officer Don Stahl set up a bear trap in a central Abbotsford neighbourhood Wednesday.
Bruin strolls through neighbourhoods BEAR, from page A1 Neighbours and area workers poured out onto the street to catch a glimpse of the creature. Holden found it incredible and a little frightening the bear would frequent such a busy neighbourhood. “It’s scary with the amount of kids and people walking their dogs in the area,” she said. “My kids cut through there to get to Walnut Park.” Conservation officers arrived in the early afternoon and set up a bear trap among the saplings in the green area, said Holden. Conservation officer Don Stahl said the bear is likely the same one sighted near Whatcom Road last week. Stahl said the bear has been into bird feed-
ers but he hoped it has not become too acclimatized to humans, and can be relocated. Holden doesn’t want to see the bear shot but does want it captured. She hopes area residents will take extra care with their garbage. “I still haven’t gone two feet from my door. I keep looking behind me to make sure it’s not crawling in my back yard,” she said. Stahl said area children can still play outside but to stay away from the trap. But conservation officers gave Rosel a bit of training in case the trap gets an unexpected visitor. “They taught Dottie to open and shut it just in case a kid or animal gets caught inside,” said Holden.

First of all, calling his handheld live-link with the universe a “cellphone” is like calling my computer a “chalk and slate.” Indeed, his cellphone has more bells and whistles than a bell-and-whistle factory. I shouldn’t have been surprised that it was also a surrogate pitch pipe. Or at least, it could be converted into a pitch pipe . . . through an “app.” By now, the kids are rolling their eyes at this goofy old editor who is penning his amazement at the amazing turns that technology has taken lately. There is no way that they can understand how astounding it is for a guy like me to tune his guitar to a cellphone. Visually. Remember? I was having trouble tuning my guitar in the first place because my ears were a bit blocked. Using the cellphone, I was able to watch each string come into perfect tune as coloured bars on the phone’s visual display closed in on each other while I cranked the guitar’s
Odd thoughts actions. Okay, folks. That blew me away. I can feel those eyes rolling again . . . cut it out! I come from a world in which there was only one telephone, mounted on the kitchen wall of one house, near the end of the gravel road I lived on. It was available to the entire neighbourhood, due solely to the remarkable generosity and downright neighbourliness of its owner – although no one would think to impose upon that neighbourly generosity for anything other than dire emergency, job search, or overseas calls from dying relatives. You could talk on that telephone. And you could listen. That’s it. Talk . . . and listen. And that was already pretty darned amazing, just because the talking and listening were going on between people who could be literally thousands of miles from each other. How cool was that! Now, scarcely half a lifetime down the road (I intend to live to be at least 110 plus change)
I had in my hands a telephone – not even connected to a long, thin wire, let alone mounted on a kitchen wall – that helped me to tune my guitar. By sight! A short time later, guitar back leaning against the wall, I was tooling about with some minor renovations, when I realized I needed a carpenter’s level from out in the garage . . . And out came that cell phone again. “You need a level?” The Kid asked. “There’s an app for that.” His tone was matter of fact; he wasn’t being facetious or anything. His thumbs went crazy for a few seconds, an array of options appeared on the cellphone’s screen, he made a selection, and he handed me the phone . . . or should I say, he handed me the level. I believe it was classic science fiction writer Arthur C. Clark who popularized the notion that, if humanity were to encounter a sufficiently advanced alien civilization, we would not be able to distinguish its technology from magic. I’m thinking that, if my father had been handed The Kid’s cellphone/pitch pipe/level when he was growing up during the First World War, he might have believed in magic. !

t’s not just weeds that are at issue – it’s science, and perhaps more importantly, reason is on the block. Calls for a ban on cosmetic pesticides were finally met by Premier Christy Clark . . . but her response was not satisfactory to those who made the call. They don’t view the premier’s response as a ban at all, but at best, a tightening of restrictions. In fact, both sides are playing fast and loose with science and reason. The herbicides that activists want banned have been scientifically demonstrated to be safe, provided that they are used properly. So why bother banning them at all? But the government’s own committee reports show that the real problem with those herbicides is probably that they simply are not being used properly. Despite careful labelling and control restrictions at points of sale, too many people use too much in the wrong places for the wrong purposes and in the wrong way. So while Premier Clark’s response acknowledges that approved pesticides are safe under the terms of their approval, her decision to tighten restrictions that are already being ignored may make some intrinsic scientific sense – but it fails the test of reason. Political anti-pesticide activists can’t claim too much reason on their side, either, as they emphasize terms like “toxic chemicals” and “deadly substances.” Of course, weed-killing chemicals are toxic and the substances are deadly. That’s precisely why they’re used: because they are toxic and deadly . . . to plants. As long as they are used correctly. Now we get back to the human side of it: too many untrained people use too much of the stuff for purely cosmetic reasons. And there’s the toxic crux: a mindset that a few harmless weeds must be expurgated at all costs, versus a declaration of war based on an irrational fear of chemicals. It’s political interference in rational decision-making that needs to be banned.

Looks like grave robber had a conscience
Editor, the Times:
On May 24, the Times published a letter from me detailing the theft of a metal vase holder from my wife’s grave. That letter must have affected someone because, on visiting the grave on Sunday I found the vase holder back, including the vases and pretty plastic flowers in each vase. The holder was never worth much in the first place but as it was returned, it shows that someone out there has a conscience. Thank you! While there, I also saw something else that I did not like. Folks walk their dogs in the cemetery, and, being animals they make their deposits on the graves and sometimes on the headstones. I frequently see this happen. Now if those people could also have an attack of conscience, it would be great. Thanks to the Times for helping me get back the flower vase holder. R.A. Klassen, Abbotsford
AirCare: it’s not OK to just swap spewers Editor, the Times:
Re: AirCare turns its attention to big rigs, Times, May 29. I am very concerned to read about the changes to AirCare, which fail to appreciate the program’s legacy
and ability to protect our environment and build a sustainable economy. As a resident of the Fraser Valley I know that rather than buying the government’s line that we don’t need to worry about emissions anymore, we only need to look up on a poor air quality day to realize that there are cars and trucks on the road that are polluting more than is warranted. And AirCare’s contribution is clear: the program catches close to 40,000 vehicles with emission problems each year. Without testing that number will compound from one year to the next, growing exponentially. AirCare does a good job of protecting our environment and air shed. According to the province-led 2010 Program Review, AirCare is keeping 50,000 tonnes of CO2 out of our atmosphere, and an independent review from the same year concluded the program would continue to be effective until at least 2020. Economically, AirCare repairs and preventative maintenance pumps $35 million of revenue per year into our local automotive repair industry. AirCare should be expanded to include heavy trucks and diesel engines for a safer, cleaner air shed, but one set of emitters shouldn’t be swapped for another. Heather Lee COPE 378 Vice President

Kids know we should clean up our mess Editor, the Times:
My children and I participated in Community Cleanup Week this month. We were shocked by the amount of garbage we found on our beautiful country road. Even worse was that only a week later it looked just as bad again. Here are my children’s thoughts on the matter . . . Bryson, 8.5 years: Community Clean-up Week is a week where we should always clean up the trash on the road. We went out with trash bags and we had gloves and we picked up the garbage along side our street. We even found a garden hose by the side of the road. We felt sad when we saw all the garbage. We only walked half a kilometer and we filled up a garbage bag. And it was a country street. It is bad to litter. So bring your garbage home And throw it in the trash can. Please stop littering. Samara, 5.5 years: I felt sad when I saw all the garbage. It is very bad to litter because you could wreck the animals’ habitat.
You could make an animal lost and not find its mommy again. That makes people work hard on the streets to pick it up. So please don’t litter. Please never litter again. Sherilyn Klassen Abbotsford
Great job, from one cyclist to another Editor, the Times:
Hats off to Bob Ahuja and the cycling team going across Canada to raise funds for charity (Times, May 22) I did the trip for the MCC in 1997 at the age of 57, and know what lies before the riders. There is something in the arithmetic of Christina Toth’s fine article, though, that looks a bit fuzzy to me. Vancouver to Halifax measures about 6,500 km. If anyone wishes to make that trip in 17 days, they would have to cover about 375 km every day – day after day? That is more than the average daily segment of the Tour de France, which runs about 170 km on average, with the longest segment measuring about 230 km. On my trip I did manage just over 200km/day a few
times, and that is quite a pedal! You may wish to check that statement again. Also, the circumference of the Earth is 33,000 km. So if “they will each ride at least 22,000 km,” how does that happen within a total trip length of 6,500 km? Are you talking about each team’s accumulated distance? Certainly not about each rider’s output? As I said, the arithmetic needs some careful revision, or else the statements need to be reworked. At any rate, my best wishes and prayers are with the team for a wonderful effort. Ben Jeske, Abotsford (Editor’s note: The number should have read 2,200 km.)
Busily creating our own extinction Editor, the Times:
Mitigating the effects of global warming should be among our highest priorities, if not the highest, as without a sustainable planet to live on, nothing else matters. Yet the twin evils of fundamentalist thinking and the corporate agenda are conspiring to thwart the proven science behind the dramatic changes already happening to our planet, because of human interference, by first denying anything is wrong. From bible thumper
pulpits to corporate board rooms to the office of Harper and his spin doctors, there is a massive con game being played on the Canadian public and it’s having far too much success. The massive international corporations use this mutual fear of science to help them to ensure their bottom lines stay healthy. They do this in part by paying non-climate scientists and opinions-for-hire think tanks to come up increasingly whacky denials that there even is global warming. Anything denying science is fine with the illiterate religious out there, so it’s a win/win for them and a huge loss for humanity. Each and every ludicrous claim put forward by the climate deniers has been cut to pieces by credible scientific research the world over. Whether it’s because the fickle public has the attention span of five-year-olds, or because they’d rather believe the insane claims of the climate deniers over science, I don’t know. It leaves me with a sinking feeling that I am on a Ship of Fools with no way off, even though the climate scientists have clearly and accurately pointed out that we’re on a collision course with disaster looming ever closer.

Two Steves save the day with CPR
HEROES, from page A3 bian Hospital where he underwent five hours of emergency bypass surgery. He woke up a couple of days later with no memory of what had happened. His surgeon was amazed at his patient’s recovery and attributed it to the early intervention Lewis received. Jacqueline wrote to the fire department to thank them for the best Mother’s Day gift possible. The actions of her son-in-law and her husband’s other rescuers mean the couple has the chance to celebrate their 50th anniversary.
No decisions on harm reduction
who saved his life.” Walking on stage to get his commendation from Lewis was surreal. “The picture in my head is him lying on the ground,” said Parks. It was God’s will all the pieces of the puzzle were in place to save Lewis, said Parks. His new friend Steve Stewart wholeheartedly agrees it was fate, not coincidence. “I’m a firm believer we get put in places where we need to be,” said Stewart. “Steve picked up his daughter at school that day. I was put in that van for a reason. “Some people don’t believe that, but thankfully, I do.”
“We’re so grateful he has a second opportunity for a chance at life and to see his grandchildren grow up,” said Jacqueline. “We just have so many more things we’d like to do.” Steve Parks still finds it emotionally overwhelming to recall the day Lewis came back to life. He’s uncomfortable with people describing him as a hero. “I’m just an average Joe that gets through life,” he said. “I didn’t save his life. I was a part of a big group of people
COUNCIL, from page A3 in favour of a needle exchange, appeared unsatisfied with the response. “Fraser Health Authority needs to get its act together and there should be a representative here that could have answered that question, because detox is part of it,” he said. “For Fraser Health to come here and not talk about detox with all the millions you’re going to save by putting [harm reduction] in is, well quite frankly, it’s insulting.” Banman also warned Fraser Health not to neglect consulting with stakeholders regarding future site locations for needle exchanges. “You’d better do and it better be respectful discussion,” he said. “Fraser Health in my opinion needs to bring its ‘A’ game a little better. To send this community into this mess, I’m not impressed.”

Colour and ruffles are all the rage for the class of 2012
CHRISTINA TOTH CToth@abbotsfordtimes.com
f there’s one thing you can say about this year’s crop of prom gowns, it’s that they are blooming gorgeous colours. Think spring and summer blossoms – rose pink, iris purple, bright fuschia pink and nasturtium orange, daisy yellow, sky blue, even lily white. Styles range from long elegant sheaths to short dresses with a simple or bejewelled bodice atop frothy skirts made of layers of ruffles or poufs of chiffon, all drenched in delicious, youthful colours. “You’ll see a lot of high-lows (where the hemlines drop from short in the front to longer in the back) or split skirts, so you can have the best of both,” says Gerri Charles, the proprietor of Champagne & Lace in Abbotsford. Some young ladies may choose a full southern bellestyle gown with yards of material in the skirt, or maybe sport long evening gloves, but the trend among the 2012 grads is to wear something that’s flirty and easy to wear. Although they may come into the shop for fitting and alterations right after soccer practise in their team jerseys, her clients are ready to make a memorable leap into adulthood, says Charles. Their grad fashion choices reflect that.
“Many of the young women are standing out and declaring their fashion independence,” Charles says. Animal prints are popular, and these too are drenched in colour. Another look that Charles loves are skirts made of vertical ruffles, which offer a twist on the belle of the ball skirts. “Although it’s a nightmare for hemming” for the shop’s seamstresses, she adds with a laugh. Other styles this spring emphasize a bare back, but Charles cautions it works best “if you have the figure for it and it stays in place.” In this look, backs and shoulders are bare or almost bare, possibly framed by strappy waistband and details accented with rhinestones and crystals, elaborate embroidery or lacing. “Some styles are heavily beaded, or in some cases, with the [sheer] fabric covering the beading for a tone on tone effect,” adds Charles. An alternative to an open back is a shirred bodice, which can be found paired with above the knee or fulllength skirts with slit fronts to show off gorgeous gams. While most young women have purchased their grad dresses weeks or months ago, they will now be focused on finding the perfect accessories, shoes and after-party outfits. For finishing touches, girls choose silver, gold, off-white or neutral heels. If they are more rebellious, or simply more practical when it comes to shoes and dancing all night long, they choose flats, or bring a pair along for later. Jewellery tends to have big visual impact to balance the colour and style impact of the dress. The lady grads are wearing either long or chandelier earrings and leaving their necks bare. Rhinestones or cut glass catches the light, and can be paired with a similar glitzy bracelet. Or, they’ll choose a big impressive neck piece, paired with subtle stud earrings, says Charles. Feathers in the hair, worn as a cluster or like a fascina-

Celebrating Grad 2012 Time to reach out and Pride and inspiration make the world better as perseverance pays off
Culminating years of hard work by students and parents alike
o Abbotsford School District graduates of 2012 and your families: On behalf of my colleagues on the Board of Education, it is a true pleasure to be able to acknowledge the graduates of 2012 in our school district. There are some 1,600 Grade 12 graduates at our nine secondary schools this year – an impressive number of young people achieving and succeeding throughout their time in school. Each has their own story of how they have reached this milestone in their lives. Graduates, as you will no doubt hear a few times over the coming weeks, this is a defining time in your lives. You are coming to the end of your school journey – and the possibilities that are presented to you now are vast.
You have received one of the best possible public educations in the world. Whether you now proceed to post-secondary programs, directly into a career or job, take a gap year, or go travelling, know that the memories and experiences you have had over the last 12 to 13 years, and most especially in the last few years at your secondary school, have become part of who you are. It is a unique time of transition into greater independence, and of making important choices that will shape your careers and life generally. Graduates, on behalf of our school district, I salute you, your teachers, school staff and administrators for your efforts and contributions in all aspects of school life this year. I also want to acknowledge the parents,
JOHN R. SUTHERLAND
abby chair family members and close friends who are celebrating your graduation. They have all played a large part in your arrival at this point. So this time is as much a celebration for them as for you. And we sincerely thank them for supporting their students during these important school years. Now, go out there and aim to make this world a better place. From all of us on the Board of Education, sincere congratulations to the Class of 2012 on your accomplishments. John R. Sutherland Chair, Abbotsford Board of Education
Now it’s your choice, your decision, and ultimately, your consequence
ongratulations and best wishes from the school trustees of the Mission Public Schools board. One segment of your life is done. The foundation has been laid. You have learned and learned and learned. From the time you were born you have been learning skills and gaining knowledge. Some of you will go on to post secondary education, some will join the work force, some of you will start families and some of you might just relax for awhile before jumping into the adult world. One thing is sure – you are not done with learning. However, up to now you have been guided – some of you in a relaxed way and some in a not so relaxed way. Now it is up to you! You will be making the decisions. You will have success in your days and you will have failures – this is also a sure thing. But this is exciting. Enjoy your successes and learn from your failures. Never let your failures stop you from trying because it is the trying and trying again that sometimes lead to great discoveries about yourself.
What kind HEINRICHS of employee mission will you be chair – will you be on time, will you give an honest day’s work? What kind of life partner will you be – will you be kind, dependable and honest? Will you be a good neighbour, a responsible citizen, a caring son or daughter? You might say you already are all these things and if so, I applaud you. The difference is that now it is your choice, your decision and lastly, your consequence. You made the decision to stay the course and graduate – definitely a good decision. Now go out and continue to stay the course whatever it may be that you have chosen. Remember that your friends and family are still there, willing to support you if you need help along the way. I am proud of your accomplishments. Edie Heinrichs Chair, Mission Public Schools
Congratulations & Best Wishes to the Class of 2012 Graduates. Are you looking for:
• Courses leading to graduation? • Tuition free courses for graduated adults? • Foundation literacy & math courses for advanced ESL learners & struggling adult learners? • Structured evening courses?

Local police are encouraging young people to guard their bright future by making wise choices during graduation celebrations. “This is a celebration o f a c h i e v e m e n t ,” s a i d Abbotsford Const. Ian MacDonald. “This is the launching pad for the rest of their lives and we don’t want it to
Grad briefs be the end point.” Parents should have discussions with their teens about drinking and driving, and be willing to pick up their grads, regardless of the hour, if it prevents them from getting into a car with an impaired driver. “It’s part of the territory of
being a parent,” he said. Mission RCMP Sgt. Miriam Dickson also suggested youth to step up and take turns or shifts as the designated driver during the celebration season. “Talk to your parents and your friends and work out a designated driver,” she said. “Deaths from drunk driving are such unnecessary events.” – STAFF REPORTER

Marrissa Mendel is a vision in her blue-hued ombre ball gown, while Gerri Charles, owner of Champagne & Lace, makes some final adjustments. Vertical ruffles, too, are popular this year.
What to wear over the dress? Well, not much, says Charles. “Most kids don’t even carry a handbag. They just have a cellphone, so they can keep in touch with their friends and their mom, a bank card and maybe lip gloss, and it all goes into the top of the dress, since most gowns don’t come with pockets,” she says with a laugh. “They don’t want to be held back in any way. They are free spirits.”
STYLE, from page A17 ator, a la Will and Kate, are also fun and light, says Charles. “They really limit (the look) to one approach or the other. Girls are doing so much these days with their bodies – with tattoos, nails, spray-on tans.” Coiffed hair and a perfect manicure and pedicure complete the finish.

ry to Remember is one of those songs that can turn anyone into a weepy mess, (well, at least this writer.) But that’s why it’s also one of the best loved and most memorable songs from The Fantasticks, a musical performed by Gallery 7 Theatre as its last show of its spring season. The Fantasticks, opened in 1960 and written by Tom Jones and Harvey Schmidt was considered the longest running musical in theatre history, said Gallery 7 artistic director Ken Hildebrandt. The musical tells the timeless story of young love, innocence and self-discovery. “I’m so thrilled to see that such an incredibly talented group of theatre artists, both on and off the stage, has been assembled to bring this production to life,” he said. “I think audiences will really delight in the charming music, the amazing singing and the humorous, if slightly bizarre storyline. There’s a reason this play has been running off-Broadway for over 50 years – it’s a perfect pre-summer treat.” Set on a simple stage to suggest a timeless period and nameless location, the story follows young sweethearts enjoying their innocent romance. When they discover their courtship is actually the result of the manipulations of their

A beautifully crafted story, The Fantasticks features such famous songs as Try to Remember and Soon It’s Gonna Rain. The production features a company of talented musical theatre artists from the Fraser Valley. Arne Larsen plays the roguish narrator, El Gallo. Larsen has appeared in numerous musicals including The Great American Trailer Park Musical, Annie,
The Pirates of Penzance and Fiddler on the Roof. The roles of the young lovers are assumed by Morgan Cox at Matt and Emily Talma as Luisa, while their conniving yet well-meaning fathers are portrayed by Michael McIntyre as Bellomy, and Eldon Letkeman as Hucklebee.

Her trusting sidekick is played by newcomer Jonathan Matheson and Mark Klausen takes on the role of The Mute.

UFV soccer teams move
Cascades to play in Chilliwack come September TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
he University of the Fraser Valley’s men’s and women’s soccer squads will be moving out of Abbotsford’s Bateman Park this year and will play their games at Exhibition Field in Chilliwack. The two teams play in the elite Canada West conference. The move to Chilliwack’s Exhibition Field will allow the teams to play night games and hopefully attract more spectators. It’s a change in scenery that’s welcomed by the coaches of both teams. “I think it’s absolutely top class and fantastic,” said men’s head coach Al Errington. Errington has fond memories of the field from his time as the coach of the Vancouver Whitecaps in the late 1970s and early 1980s, when the club played the Seattle Sounders at the Chilliwack field. “It’s one of the best little stadiums around. The surface is brilliant, it’s a great little stand, the view is so picturesque,” he said. “It’s one of the most beautiful little stadiums you’ll ever see.” The Bateman Park facility in Abbotsford had limited seating, a transparent (chain link) fence that allowed spectators to watch without paying, and no lights. That meant that games were played during the day, which made it hard to draw fans.
– TIMES FILE
University of the Fraser Valley soccer teams will play at Chilliwack’s Exhibition Field starting in September. The move has the endorsement of both the Cascades men’s and women’s head soccer coaches. The move to Chilliwack has the coaches of the two soccer squads expecting a boost in support when UFV kicks off their season this September. “It allows a lot more people to come and watch than when we play Saturday and Sunday afternoon,” said Errington. Women’s head coach Rob Giesbrecht is also looking forward to the move. “We get to play at night, we get to play in a stadium, we’ll get to play in
front of some fans,” he said. Giesbrecht said the move to Exhibition Field should increase the school’s ability to attract the best college soccer players to the Fraser Valley. He added that Chilliwack’s successful hosting of Whitecaps women games – the women are slated play at Exhibition Field Friday night – shows that there is a dedicated fan base in the city. While the pitch is currently grass, it is slated to be converted to turf
next year. That isn’t a major issue for either Giesbrecht or Errington, who said many college teams now play their home games on artificial surfaces. “We’re confident that the city of Chilliwack is going to put in a nice synthetic field,” he said. UFV sports information rep David Kent said the university has signed a one-year contract with the City of Chilliwack for use of Exhibition Field. But he expects the move to be permanent.
Levale sparkles in spring league Nakisa Levale scored 16 points trailed by Veronica Draayer’s 11 points and Sukhi Birk’s 10 points in Abbotsford Traditional’s 59-42 victory over the Hatzic Secondary Red Hawks in the Fraser Valley Spring League basketball final on Thursday.

Kayaking lessons on at Cultus The Chilliwack Centre of Excellence is offering kayak lessons on June 9-10 at the Main Beach Boathouse at Cultus Lake from noon to 2 p.m. Discover the joy of kayaking in this two-day event is for beginners (with zero to limited kayak experience). At the end of the lessons, participants will be prepared for all club events held on flat water and for beginner river lessons held later in the summer. Kayakers will learn basic safety and boat control in a fun environment and may get wet, but that’s half the fun of kayaking. All equipment is provided (lifejacket, kayak, paddle and spraydeck) but participants will need to dress for the weather. Wear a wetsuit if possible. The water at Cultus Lake is cool all year round. If you do not have a wetsuit the club has some to lend for the event but cannot guarantee availability or fit. If a wetsuit is not possible, wear snug clothing and do not wear cotton. Spandex, fleece and polypropylene are best as a base layer, and a windbreaker or rain jacket on top. Also wear water shoes that you can swim in (no flip-flops, crocs or bulky sandals). Sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses are also recommended along with a dry change of clothes for after the lesson. Cost for the set of lessons is $50 for grades 5-6 (ages 10 and up). For more information call Jon at 604-703-6597 or e-mail him at ccekayak@ gmail.com.

Aries March 21 - April 19: The emphasis remains on trips, visits, talks, emails, news media, casual friends and siblings, curiosity and information. Delays exist, but affection graces all (well, most) interactions. A wise, loving mood descends upon you Sunday and Monday – two lucky days, if you can leave work to one side. (Careful with machines and driving – Thursday too.) Your ambitions come into clear focus Tuesday/ Wednesday. The barrier you feel is a relationship barrier; as long as someone doesn’t accept you, a career advance might be hard to gain. Thursday on, popularity, optimism and joy visit you! Taurus April 20-May 20: The accent remains on money, buying/selling, earnings, clients, possessions – and sensual attractions. Sunday/ Monday, your ﬁnances lean toward long-term objectives: investments, debt reduction (or increase) money-sharing, etc. Be bold Sunday, mildly careful Monday. A wise, gentle, understanding mood drifts over you Tuesday/Wednesday. Don’t force home/ domestic matters either evening. Your ambitions awaken Thursday/Friday – avoid bending any legal/ ethical rules (and avoid those who do) – your efforts could strike gold, or earn a VIP’s praise! Joy, friends Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Your energy, charisma, clout and effectiveness ride the crest of a wave! Get out, start important projects, ask favours, express love if you feel it – in all, avoid selﬁsh or ultraindependent actions/moods. (This advice applies until Aug. 30.) You’ll be reminded of others’ presence Sunday/Monday, when relationships occupy centre stage. Exciting meetings, challenges/opposition, opportunities, partnerships, even love are possible. But both days (and Thursday) hint that your home, or your hopes about home, property, can block a bonding. Love, joy, travel late week.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Continue to rest, retreat – be alone, to enjoy the peace, to think clearly, and to accomplish and make plans while others dance for the pied piper of others’ approval. Tackle chores and protect your health (eat, dress sensibly) Sunday/Monday. All’s well, but avoid unsafe use of machinery in/around home Monday. Relationships succeed in every way Tuesday/Wednesday, except one: marriage, partnership. Be diplomatic. Life’s mysteries rise to the surface Thursday (problems – careful driving, and with machinery) and Friday (success) – a powerful (but forbidden?) attraction might occur. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The accent remains on friendships, groups, wish fulﬁllment, entertainment, and light romance (which might become deep). Sunday/Monday emphasize the intense side of these areas, and could cause a mild dilemma: do you opt for light or powerful romance? For independent creativity, or “creation by committee?” If things do intensify, let them. Only money, or emotional possessiveness, can ruin results (Monday and Thursday). Tackle chores Tuesday/Wednesday. (Be careful with electricity – and your back.) Love, exciting meetings, new vistas, great opportunities arrive, Thursday to Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The focus lies on your career, worldly standing, prestige relationships, and dealings with authorities. Be careful, prudent this week, for Sunday/Monday and Thursday could trigger hasty reactions on all sides. Otherwise, this is a productive, good week, especially Thursday (avoid temper, hasty investments) through Saturday, when your work efforts meet with splendid success, and could, by Saturday, introduce you to meaningful new relationships or opportunities. Earlier, Sunday and Monday are for home, family, security, nature. Your romantic, beauty-oriented side surfaces midweek.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The things you love gently pull your sleeve this week: far travel, international ideas and communications, law and justice, learning, culture and compassionate love. Try a foreign ﬁlm or a play. (DO NOT start a lawsuit before September.) Casual friends, siblings, short trips, paperwork and communications ﬁll Sunday/Monday.These two days, and Thursday, point to a ﬂaw in a new or burgeoning relationship: this person might have too much power over you, subtly restricts or burdens you, etc. Retreat to contemplate this, midweek. Thursday to Saturday: romance, creative urges, beauty! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Mysteries, secrets, research, detective work – mighty changes which can turn the course of your life – powerful sexual urges, high intuition, ﬁnancial courage – these ﬁll this week and next. To succeed, keep honesty and moral goodness in your ﬁst. (Without these, success occurs, but itself forms the ﬁrst step toward traps and loss. Remember this advice through August.) This week, work demands or co-workers might interfere with your progress: act when free of these. Chase money Sunday/Monday. Trips, talk midweek. Thursday to Saturday brings a triumph on family, realty fronts. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, clout and pizzazz ride high Sunday/Monday – but it’s only so you can be more attractive when you propose joining up with others. Maintain a diplomatic, friendly approach, but do approach. Chase money – carefully – Tuesday/Wednesday. Thursday to Saturday bring travel, errands, casual friends, siblings, news and curiosity. You and another might start a friendly romance; someone might aid you in home or real estate. A Gemini now can change your life; an Aries might disrupt it. All week, protect your career position with a simple potion: gentleness, humour.

June 3 - 9, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Tackle chores. Sleep properly, and protect your health from seasonal complaints. Continue to avoid legal suits. Retreat, contemplate and plan Sunday/Monday. Some of your ideas could be brilliant, especially in areas of labour and career. Your energy and charisma return somewhat midweek – your home/family hold surprises (and you’re tense there) so train your efforts on career, prestige, document and educational fronts. Spend, chase money Thursday to Saturday – luck accompanies you! But buy no machinery, computer or auto. All week, diplomatically sidestep opinionated people. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A love affair might have begun recently, or could this week. It’s quite likely that your “amour” stumbles over speech, acts nervous, or has a temper (or a critical side). You need to decide whether to fuse together, or to wait until someone else wanders down the path. I have no advice: only that, if your motives are pure, this affair should be ﬁne. It certainly has a sexy side. Your popularity and optimism soar Sunday/Monday. A wish might come true! Retreat, ﬁnd rest and solitude Tuesday/ Wednesday. Your energy, charisma and clout surge Thursday to Saturday – start something! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The accent remains on home, property, family, nature, nutrition and soul. Be restful – this is a bit of a hibernation time. Your luck in real estate grows – to June 2013. Be ambitious Sunday/Monday, but deftly avoid money discussions (Thursday also) especially with a partner or prospective client. Your hopes rise – so does your popularity – Tuesday/Wednesday. But take care both evenings, as monetary or sensual disappointment can occur. Retreat Thursday to noon Saturday – lie low, rest, contemplate and plan. Though you’re tired, your luck soars in home, realty, love and art. firstname.lastname@example.org • Reading: 604-727-3673
