Alycia Braun, day manager at Earls Abbotsford, said the chain is allowing customers to bring wine for a $15 corkage fee per 750 ml bottle.

bbotsford Police are circulating a photo for a person of interest after an 85-year-old woman was shoved to the ground during a purse snatching Sunday. The senior was attacked on Eagle Street after making transactions at TD Canada Trust located in the 32800 block of South Fraser Way around 12:45 p.m. Investigators are working on the theory that the victim’s attacker may have been at the same bank scoping out potential victims, said Const. Ian MacDonald. The photo of the young man police want to talk to was obtained from the TD bank’s security video, said MacDonald. There are similarities between the man in

bbotsford and Mission diners now have the option of bringing their own bottle of wine to their favourite restaurant with a new change to provincial liquor regulations. But while many local restaurants are adopting the new policy to better serve their customers, they are not convinced it will help the struggling industry’s bottom line. Rich Coleman, Minister of Energy and Mines, made the announcement alongside Ian Tostenson, president and CEO of the B.C. Restaurant and Food Service Association, last

Thursday morning. “We want to provide our restaurant industry with greater flexibility in terms of the services it can offer to its customers,” said Coleman in a press release. Restaurants choosing to participate in the BYOW plan can charge patrons a corkage fee for the service. Licensees are still liable if patrons over imbibe or if minors are served, and the new rules don’t apply to beer or other spirits. The new regulations will help get people to come out and dine more often, said Tostenson. “More business will result in positive economic impacts such as increased employment and

Upfront Briefly Cow causes serious crash on Highway 1 Two people are in hospital after an early morning crash on Highway 1 in the Fraser Valley involving a cow. Sgt. Roland Pierschke, a spokesman for the Port Mann Freeway Patrol, said a semi-truck was traveling westbound near 264th Street in Langley around 1 a.m. Wednesday, when it hit a cow standing in the middle of the highway. He said then an SUV with two occupants travelling behind the semi-truck smashed into the cow, spun out of control and landed on its roof. The man and woman, both in their 30s, were taken to Langley hospital with non-life threatening injuries. Pierschke said he hasn’t seen an incident involving a cow on the highway in 30 years. He said the dead animal was taken away as part of an investigation to determine who owns it and how it ended up on the highway. The incident blocked the road for more than an hour.

StatsCan CSI numbers for surrounding communities in 2011 show Langley City at 170.5, Surrey at 129.9, Mission at 121.7, Chilliwack at 112.6, Langley Township at 98.1. “Relative to our neighbours, [Abbotsford’s CSI] is not too bad,” MacDonald said. It’s believed that the drop in Abbotsford’s CSI is largely due to the community’s response and stepping up to combat crime, particularly violent crime associated with gangs, he said. The CSI nationally was down six

ission native Carly Rae Jepsen is caught in a sex tape scandal so hot, even the police have stepped in. Shortly after the 26-year-old “Call Me Maybe” singer turned up the heat in a lavender playsuit while performing onstage at the Teen Choice Awards on the weekend – the star was hit with a sex-tape rumour on Monday – which she was quick to squash. “Crazy morning. Discovered that someone put up a sex tape claiming to be me. Ridiculous. Obviously not me,” Jepsen said on Twitter. Rumour or fact, the girl in the film looks eerily similar to the B.C. star, so much so that Vancouver police have reportedly stepped in to investigate. Police are reportedly “investigating the unauthorized use of a computer, theft of telecommunications, and criminal harassment related to Ms. Jepsen,” according to Global News. Whether the phone and/or computer were hacked or stolen has not yet been disclosed. The investigation is said to have begun in mid-March, and was escalated after the recent leaked photos and video.

was hit hard by the weather challenges, said Sharmin Gamiet, executive director of the Raspberry Industry Development Council based in Abbotsford. “It’s been one of the most difficult harvests I can recall,” said Gamiet. “The rainy spring didn’t seem to stop, which made it hard to get into the fields and put stress on the plants.” As the weather improved, the harvest began but the early raspberry varieties were hit hard by mould, she said. The early crop had to be diverted from the most profitable fresh or quick frozen market towards processing for juice. The bulk of Canada’s and the province’s raspberries are grown within the 3,200 acres under cultivation in Abbotsford or the Fraser Valley, she said. However, all is not lost. The raspberr y season, which started in mid-June, runs until early August and will likely improve with the weather, she added. “The season’s not over yet and things can get better.”

Briefly Woman injured after crash with truck A Chilliwack woman was seriously injured in a crash with a semi-truck driven by an Abbotsford man near Agassiz Tuesday afternoon. Mounties say the crash happened Tuesday at 1:20 p.m. five kilometres east of Agassiz on Highway 7. According to police, a westbound 2010 Hyundai Sonata driven by the Chilliwack woman crossed the centre line of Highway 7. The 66-year-old Abbotsford driver of a transport truck travelling the opposite direction took evasive action to avoid the Hyundai. But the car struck the side of the trailer and came to rest in a ditch. The car’s driver was extracted from the car and was airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster in critical condition. – CHILLIWACK TIMES

hings are looking bright for one Abbotsford berry crop but rather sour for another this season. After a bit of a difficult start, the blueberry harvest has the potential to be the best one in years, said Mike Makara, chair of the B.C. Blueberry Council. “So far it’s going quite well and it’s going to be a big crop, a substantial increase from the last couple of years,” said Makara. The rain at the start of the season in mid-July made harvesting the early varieties more difficult but the quality of the berries, headed mostly to the fresh market, was still good, he said. If the weather continues to improve as expected and there are no periods of prolonged rain, there is potential to have a record crop. The last three years provincial blueberry production, the bulk occurring in the Fraser Valley, has averaged around 95 million pounds, said Makara. But with more acreage coming on line and this year’s good crop, the industry consultant thinks the haul might increase to 110 to 115 million pounds. Last year the cold spring weather impeded pollination at blossom time. But this year, despite the persistent gloom, there was a spell of good weather as the blueberry flowers emerged and there has been a lower prevalence of disease, said Makara. And if the weather stays on track local blueberry farmers will be harvesting right until the end of September as late varieties come on line. Raspberry season is well underway but this year’s crop

Whooping cough outbreak still a cause for concern

Purse snatcher described as 5-foot, 8-inch Caucasian man aged 18 to 20 wearing hoodie SNATCHER, from page A1

A

lmost three hundred cases of whooping cough have been re p o r t e d a m o n g Fr a s e r Valley residents in the past nine months. The recent outbreak — part of the upward trend in pertussis infections in Canada and the U.S. in the past year — is slowing now, but remains a concern for Fraser Health officials. Of the 295 probable and reported cases, 247 were confirmed whooping cough in laboratory tests since the outbreak’s start in November 2011 to July 7, according to Fraser Health spokesman Roy Thorpe-Dorward.

“We’ve had a total of eight cases in children under age one, which are the ones that are most serious . . .” – Roy Thorpe-Dorward FH

“The number is above the historical average,” he said Tuesday. “There is nothing that is alarming at the moment, but we are going to keep our eye on it.” B.C. is not the only region dealing with an outbreak this year. There have been some 2,000 suspected cases reported in Washington state and an estimated 18,000 across the United States, the worst count in decades. Pertussis has also been a problem in Alberta, Ontario and New Brunswick, where there have been a thousand reported cases. One baby died in Alberta, where there were 42 confirmed cases. Fraser Health statistics show the spike in new cases hitting a high in February and tapering off significantly since then. Mid-June, the health authority announced the outbreak was now “decreasing but ongoing” and noted reported cases “have significantly tailed off over the past six weeks.” The week of July 7 there were six new cases reported. The week prior just two new cases. A handful of patients required hospitalization. To date, no one has died of the disease. Whooping cough is most serious in infants under a year old. “We’ve had a total of eight cases in children under age one, which are the ones that are most serious and the ones we worry about the most, but we haven’t had any fatalities,”

Thorpe-Dorward said. Pe r t u s s i s i s a b a c t e rial infection of the lining of the respirator y tract. It is extremely contagious and spreads through the air or personal contact. It often starts like a cold, then develops into the distinctive “whoop” cough that can last from six to 12 weeks. It is treated with antibiotics. Most children are vaccinated for the illness as infants in a series of five doses plus a booster in Grade 9. But the vaccine takes time to build immunity and can wear off within a decade without a booster, so adults can contract it as well. It is not usually fatal, except occasionally in infants, because of their small, weak lungs. Whooping cough epidemics are cyclic, and it’s thought that parents choosing not to immunize their children may be a contributing factor in the outbreak. According to Health Canada, “whooping cough is the most frequently reported, vaccine-preventable disease in Canada.” In the past decade, the health agency states an average of 2,400 to 10,000 cases are reported each year and one to three infants die. The Fraser Valley outbreak is clustered in Agassiz, Chilliwack, and Hope, where the outbreak began, and over half of all cases have been reported there. Others appeared in Langley, Surrey, Maple Ridge, White Rock, Abbotsford, Burnaby and Coquitlam. The disease has been most widespread among preschool-aged children and their caregivers, according to Fraser Health statistics. To date, there have been 52 probable reported cases among children aged one to four, 43 cases among children aged five to nine, 3 cases among children aged 10 to 13, 22 cases among teens aged 14 to 18, 18 cases among youths aged 19 to 24, 62 cases among adults aged 25 to 44, 46 cases among older adults aged 45 to 64 and 11 cases among seniors aged 65 and over. Immunizations are free for children under the provincial immunization program. Adult caregivers of young children are also eligible, as are pregnant women and partners or health care workers. In early February, Fraser Health stockpiled 50,000 doses of the pertussis vaccine. There are an estimated 30 to 50 million cases of pertussis globally each year and 300,000 deaths. ■ For more: www.fraserhealth.ca/whoopingcough.

B.C. joins 21st century with BYOW W

hile it hasn’t been in widespread practice, the recently introduced policy allowing patrons to bring their own wine (BYOW) into a B.C. restaurant has been in existence for a while at some eateries in Vancouver. Of course, BYOW has been the norm for decades at many restaurants in Quebec, where there is no corkage fee. In Ontario, according to a report in last Friday’s Vancouver Sun, corkage fees can range from zero to $60. Across the pond, on London’s Brick Lane, many of the restaurants entice customers in by offering them a discount coupon on beer at a nearby grocery store to bring back to the restaurant. So it is refreshing to see one of the most provincial of provinces – especially one with a parochial attitude to beer and wine – finally join the 21st century. It must have been quite the surprise for restaurants, however, to hear last Thursday morning that as of that day, the government was implementing the BYOW plan-without giving them any advance notice. It’s voluntary and the issue had been discussed within the industry, but giving restaurants a chance to figure out their plan of action before the dinner crowd came in would have been nice. Lesley Chesterman, the Montreal Gazette’s fine-dining critic who loves BYOWs, says there’s a caveat. “BYOW restaurants aren’t always that good and are often

FIONA HUGHES

Be our Guest not considered ‘serious’ restaurants,” she told me. “There are now several excellent BYOW restaurants [in Montreal], but the majority are cheap places with lousy food.” Perhaps it will be different here. The popular, well-reviewed and award-winning Chambar restaurant on Beatty Street is pro-BYOW. It will charge a $25 corkage fee (plus HST, a tax owner Karri Schuermans calls unfair, but is forced to charge). “[BYOW] is a good opportunity for people to bring in a special bottle of wine and what they’re going to save can cover their taxi ride home,” she said. While researching the plan, Schuermans discovered that once the novelty of BYOW wore off, an average of 10 to 11 per cent of patrons – depending on the city – took advantage of the plan. The industry has had a difficult time lately. There’s the economic downturn, the sector losing its discount on booze when the HST was introduced and B.C.’s tough and sometimes confusing drunk driving laws that caused a dip in clientele. Every restaurant will figure out its own approach – if they’re

even interested in the BYOW plan. And customers will have to decide if there is any savings by bringing in their own bottle. I predict a boon for lower-end restaurants with limited wine selection. High-end restaurants with expensive sommeliers might not be so keen. We’ll see. What is peculiar about the program, however, is that any BYOW bottle must be purchased through the B.C. system. So don’t bring that great bottle of California or Washington wine you bought in the U.S. that costs twice as much in B.C. No such rule exists in Quebec, Chesterman said. The wine can be purchased from anywhere in the world, which is as it should be. “What about someone with a private cellar? How can they tell if those wines are from the BCLDB? Seems like a useless rule,” Chesterman said. No kidding. This only adds to a restaurant’s many headaches to check the labeling or worry that an overzealous inspector will fine them if they open a non-B.C. purchased wine. The irksome rule counters the B.C. Liberals’ mantra of being the party of free enterprise. But I doubt the NDP will change anything on this front when it likely gets elected next year. Nor will they ever approve a policy allowing grocery stores to sell beer or wine. But I live in hope. ■ Fiona Hughes is a staff writer with the Vancouver Courier.

hanks to the hard work of organizations like the BC Centre for Excellence in HIV/ AIDS, the tide has slowly turned on a once terrifying disease. Now a provincial campaign aims to eliminate the virus completely. Based on research developed in Vancouver, once-involved and lengthy HIV tests can now be done in 30 seconds with a single drop of blood. At the same time, new combinations of drugs have helped drive down transmission rates by 95 per cent, and people diagnosed are living much longer, healthier lives. The province is encouraging The province is everyone who encouraging everyhas been sexually active to one who has been have the quick and cheap test. sexually active to Yes, everyone. Ninety-nine have the quick and per cent of the cheap test. tests will show no infection, Yes, everyone. as expected. But one per cent likely will, experts say. Catching that last one per cent of otherwise undiagnosed cases and getting them treated could virtually wipe out the disease locally. Most of us probably assume we’re comfortably in the 99 per cent. But 30 seconds and a drop of blood is a tiny price to pay for certainty, and we’ll be doing our part to rid the province of such a wretched illness. There is a valuable lesson in all of this. Investing in research for testing and treatment saves lives, and ultimately saves money. There are dozens of other diseases in need of proactive attention. It would be a worthwhile investment of both public and private dollars to keep our labs and scientists busy now to keep treatment wards quiet later.

Polar opposite thought to stop sprawl

Editor, the Times:

Peter Kent, our environment minister, just made what for him is just another stupid statement in a long list of stupid and ill-informed stupid statements: There are no lessons to be learned from the Enbridge oil spill in the U.S. That tells me that those that are against the Northern Pipeline need to keep up the pressure as this ministerial clown has been watching too many reruns on TV of that cartoonish Enbridge commercial that all will be wonderful when we get our pipeline built and damn the environmental costs. Of course this comment of his got me riled up. Just like his comment boasting how he had defeated the scientists in the recent Rio Conference on the environment by showing how politics trumps science every time with Harper. It’s infuriating how someone like Kent, with no science background, touts the party line and isn’t challenged in the main stream media which too often opts for

And worse, when the average person does the same, whether it is Peter Kent’s clumsy attempts to make the Enbridge Northern Pipeline sound like the second coming to bring salvation from all those vegetarian anti-seal hunt people like myself. Or those attack ads that Harper is counting on when people do not look any deeper to find the frauds and out of context statements, which especially appeals to Harper’s chosen people – the low-effort thinkers. Not one of us can change or even challenge everything. But pick something to fight the good fight for and perhaps together we can start a quiet revolution by using reason and science to push for a better Canada than what Harper intends for us.

Act immediately if you want to protect resources Editor, the Times:

The world is at a dangerous point in time. Land area is limited and populations are exploding – the evidence is around us for all to see. We must press our governments and representatives to immediately put their efforts into

creating laws and restrictions to protect what little is left of natural environments and wild creatures of the earth, which in turn, will enable human beings to exist. It is difficult however to be hopeful when, instead, the public is continually informed that these vital resources are being developed, merely with the justification that it will create jobs and be good for the economy. This week, another caution was announced on the news, advising that our oceans are becoming more acidic, in which certain creatures cannot live and will become extinct. It brings to mind the documentary made a few years ago about a small, very green and vibrant place called Easter Island on which human inhabitants as well as many animals and birds lived.

There could be no more clear example of the results of human interference in nature. The public must insist elected officials protect our very existence by putting a stop to any further destruction of natural and agricultural lands by enacting the necessary changes to current legislation and bylaws which currently allow restrictions to be overruled. With increasing population, it is insanity to destroy any natural ground areas, large or small, which should either be left green or used to produce natural food crops and purify our air.

Bateman’s legacy lives on at Abbotsford school

Inspiring project connects students & nature JEAN KONDA-WITTE JKonda-Witte@abbotsfordtimes.com

T

he legacy left by world famous artist Robert Bateman at the school that bears his name will continue as students in the Art Foundations program work to bring youth and nature together. Throughout the past year, about 100 students at Robert Bateman Secondary have worked on a community garden, outdoor classroom and future green space with raised growing beds and seating areas on the west side of the campus. R e c e n t g r a d Na t a s h a Beisel recalls how the space in question had old, rotting wooden benches and the dirt was so compacted water didn’t drain anymore. Beisel worked on the project all of her Grade 12 year. She and fellow students wanted to create a space where kids could come out on sunny days and spend time with friends. “At the same time [students could] enjoy a comfortable welcoming space that also

contributes to nature itself,” she added. Beisel’s designs of the bench and path were chosen, and last spring the large L-shaped brick bench with inlaid tiles made by the students was erected by long-time mason Don Macbeth, who volunteered his time to work with the youths. Beisel helped Macbeth dig holes and haul bricks that had been donated by the Clayburn Brick Factory. “The legacy of the brick factor y is adding to the legacy of the school,” said ar t teacher and project coordiator, Sherry Dunn, who was thankful for Macbeth’s 47 years of brick laying expertise. “Without Don it wouldn’t have happened.” The sculpture garden at the lower entrance to the school on the west side will encompass about 1,500 sq. feet and include several brick benches where students can sit, raised beds with indigenous plants, brick paths to replace the tromped

A12 THURSDAY, JULY 26, 2012 THE TIMES

Restaurant 62: “It could have a large effect because wine is a big part of our business” BYOW, from page A1 “At the end of the day, we just want customers to come in and enjoy themselves,” said Braun. “We expect it will have a neutral effect on sales.” Bringing wine to restaurants has been in play in a number of other provinces for years, so it’s no great surprise it has arrived in B.C, she added. When Alberta restaurants allowed patrons to bring wine, it was popular at first but the trend died down after the novelty wore off, Braun said. Alicia Bodaly, co-owner and manager of Restaurant 62, well-known for its extensive wine selection, said the fine dining establishment will participate in the BYOW and charge a corkage fee of $25.

“We weren’t terribly in favour of the plan when it was on the table. We have a large [wine] inventory and we spent a lot of time on it,” Bodaly said. “But it is another option for people that I hope will be great in the long term.” A couple of guests have already taken advantage of the new regulations and seem pleased with the change, she said. Bodaly suspects the new plan will be appreciated most by individuals with an extensive wine collection or a particularly unique bottle they are saving for a special occasion. However, it’s not clear how the change will impact the restaurant’s revenue.

“It’s tough to say at this point. It could have a large effect because wine is a big part of our business,” said Bodaly. “But I’m hoping it will balance out with people being able to afford to come dine more often.” Kerry Martin, owner of the Blackberry Kitchen in Mission, said he expects the new policy will hurt restaurants with a high mark-up for their wines most, or establishments that specialize in menus with wine pairings. “It won’t hurt us because we have a modest mark up already,” said Martin.

The restaurateur will charge a $12 corkage fee for each bottle of wine and expects the initiative to be revenue neutral. It will be interesting to see what kind of wines people bring in, he said. However, he doesn’t expect a rush of people showing up at his door with bottles under their arms. “I don’t anticipate hordes of people will take advantage of it,” he said. However, not all local restaurants will be participating in the voluntary BYOW plan. The Abbotsford Cactus Club Cafe, along with all the B.C. restaurants in the chain, won’t be allowing patrons to bring wine. The Cactus Club chain is reviewing the new regulations to assess what it means for business, and until the review is finished, the restaurants won’t be participating in the plan, said a company spokesperson Tuesday.

CAMP, from page A4

Met wife there

the camp when they were teens. The couple, who collectively has been involved with Pines for two decades, also lived on-site for three years while working as program directors. “That’s my home away from home,” Chursinoff said, adding the camp has changed the lives of thousands of campers over the years. “Not just from a religious standpoint, but also a practical standpoint,” he said,

noting the camp provides leadership training for youth and also offers subsidized camp fees for deserving youth from struggling families. The camp, which hosts youth and family camps during the summer and is often rented out for group retreats during the school year, had in recent years completed renovations and construction on a number of buildings, including a $1.2-million dining hall. Friday’s storm damaged

the hall, washrooms and destroyed half the camp’s residential units. “People put blood, sweat and tears into it,” Chursinoff said of the effort that built the camp’s newer facilities. “To hear that a place with so much joy and love had been destroyed? It was definitely an ‘oh my goodness’ factor.”

The word is the way

JOHN THOUTENHOOFD Faith That Matters

P

eople travel around the world to catch a glimpse of something visual. It creates a sense of wonder. It could be the Louvre in Paris, the Rocky Mountains, or the wonder found in the birth of a baby. One look and you are moved to a sense of wonder. Again, I would like to write about my wall of visuals. The second visual that speaks to me is a picture of an engraved stone. It sits at the centre of the seminary which I attended, Dallas Theological Seminary. My wife and I were just three months married when we moved into our 450 square foot apartment. International housing supplied friends from around the world. Every class was a pure joy. The engraved stone which I would walk past every day as I attended classes had three words on it – “Preach The Word.” At first glance you might say to yourself “nice slogan for a seminary.” I was equally impressed with the Briercrest Bible College sign in 1980 – “The grass withers, the flower fades but the word of our God stands forever”. Why is it on my wall? Let me tell you. Over the years I have occasionally succumbed to a ministry leaning which I call “the magic bullet syndrome” where it seems like there is something just around the corner that is going to save the day. Don’t get me wrong, they were all a part of how I have been shaped to serve the body of Christ and the community around me. Strangely I acknowledge them as God trends as they have created opportunities of ministry. However, that is all they are . . . trends.

As Solomon said, of the writing of many books there is no end . . . the conclusion of the matter is to fear God and keep His commandments. No matter how many times I get distracted by another magic bullet, at the forefront of my mind is the question “What does God’s word say?” Preach the word. That is what Bible writer Paul said to his apprentice Timothy and those instructions are still good and true today. Let me tell how you should respond to the preached word. Receive the word as God incarnate. In the book of John, he introduces Jesus as the word who was with God and who was God. Although it might seem a bit mysterious and inexplicable, the word wants to speak to you. Don’t let paper colour, font types, accents or language inhibit you. If you have ears to hear, eyes to see, the word will speak to you. Let the word feed your spiritual soul. Slogans are cute. Statements are pithy. Topical thoughts can be interesting. Alliteration adds flavour. However . . . the word all by itself has the ability to taste really good. It’s soul food. Permit the word to shape your mind. Good decisions. Better decisions. The best decisions. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Allow the word to point you to Christ-like living. If the heavens declare the glory of God then I am convinced that every Bible story, paragraph, sentence and word points towards Christ. We just need to look for it. Start with the book of John. Try the first chapter and see if it has the power to be more than just a trendy spiritual preference.

Dog days of summer dangerous for pets

A

s the temperature rises, so do the risks for your pet. That’s the message from the BC SPCA as it ramps up efforts to raise awareness about the hazards and potentially fatal consequences when mixing hot summer heat and animals. Many people like to take their dogs with them to the beach or on errands but it’s very risky to take your canine friend in your vehi-

cle. The temperature inside a parked car at this time of year, even one that’s in the shade, can climb well above 38 degrees. Dogs can withstand high temperatures for only a very short time before suffering irreparable brain damage or even death. “Dogs can die after just ten minutes in a hot car,” says Craig Naherniak, BC SPCA humane education general manager.

Wake up with make up! Permanent Make-up

“It’s much kinder and far safer to leave your friend in a cool environment.”

Tips for keeping your dog safe:

■ Don’t leave your pet in the car. Even a car parked in the shade can pose a threat to your pet if the sun should change direction and heat up the car’s interior. ■ Use caution when running, cycling or

rollerblading with your pet, as these activities pose serious risks of heatstroke, accidents, and anxiety experienced by the animal. If you run or cycle with your dog, choose cooler times such as early morning or late evening and take plenty of breaks. Also, run on soft trails rather than on cement and asphalt. ■ Always take water and an appropriate container from which your dog can drink. ■ Have the number of a veterinarian on hand so that you are prepared in case of an emergency.

“Don Curtis and Calvin DeWinter have won me over. I was treated extremely well...making my new purchase as easy as can be. Great job guys!.” ~ R. McCrady “I have bought many vehicles from many car dealerships and I must admit, that this was the easiest and most friendly place I have ever dealt with. This was a significant purchase and there was never any pressure from the staff at Magnuson. Our salesman, Bruce, was polite, honest and most importantly, not pushy in any form. He answered all of our questions and filled us full of information about the new Ecoboost system on our new F150. Noelle in the business office was very friendly, helpful and a pleasure to deal with!! I would highly recommend Bruce, Magnuson Ford and any of the sales staff to anyone wanting and easy and stress free vehicle purchasing experience. Thank you everyone at Magnuson Ford, Abbotsford, BC.” ~ B. Kuchapski

he International Mission Folk Music Festival’s silver anniversary wasn’t dulled after getting a dose of liquid sunshine last weekend, “It was remarkable,” said MFMF artistic director Francis Xavier Edwards. “It was a good encapsulation of what we’ve been doing the last 25 years, showcasing music from six continents and across seven seas.” By visiting Mission’s Fraser River Heritage Park, festivalgoers got a taste of song and dance from around the world, Edwards said. “It’s time we met our neighbours on this planet in some means rather than a digital format and I can’t think of a better way than through music,” he said. Rain showers pestered the festival on Friday and Sunday, but overall, it didn’t dim the spirits and performers at the event. “The weather was teasing us all weekend,” said Edwards. see FESTIVAL, page A23

T

he Envision Concert in the Park series continues Saturday, July 28 at Mill Lake in Abbotsford with two popular bands: Horizon from 4 – 6 p.m. and Groovedaddy from 6 – 8 p.m. Horizon is an eight-piece band with an emphasis on the vocal magic of Crystal Hicks, Dana Wright and Chantelle Davidson. In the small but mighty horn section is Fred Schmidt on flute/tenor sax, and a rock solid rhythm section is created by Asger Hansen, guitar/keyboards/vocals; Warren Grosland, guitar/vocals; Rick Noel, drums/ vocals and Johan Worst, double bass/electric bass. The music is an eclectic mix of gospel, blues, jazz, rock and a bit o’ country. Groovedaddy is relatively new as a working band but as individual musicians, they

have attained a lifetime of experience playing in different bands and in their short time together. The group has become a favourite in the Abbotsford/Mission area. Groovedaddy is ‘smooth jazz, right down to your soul.’ Along with their own compositions, you’ll hear the music of Steely Dan, Lennon-McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Michael McDonald, Euge Groove, the Rippingtons and more. The band is made up of Chuck Cave, alto sax/keyboards; JimVerwoerd, guitar; Zaf Kundakcioglu, drums and Johan Worst, bass. The venue is the new stage behind Kariton Gallery at the east end of Mill Lake, 2387 Ware St., Abbotsford. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy an evening of amazing local talent. – STAFF REPORTER

THE TIMES THURSDAY, JULY 26, 2012 FESTIVAL, from page A20 “But volunteers carried along in adverse circumstances setting up in the rain and the Friday audience came out in numbers, regardless. “The artists all shared their talents . . . it was everything it was meant to be.” Walk-up sales suffered Sunday because of mixed weather, but that was balanced by fabulous turnout on Saturday when the sun shone, said Edwards. Performers on Saturday included Cana-

da’s beloved First Nations musician Buffy Sainte-Marie, an array of musicians from Sweden and Denmark including the rollicking big band Habadekuk, and the ‘voice of Greenland,’ Rasmus Lyberth. From Brazil, the festival featured accordion player Renato Borghetti and guitarist Arthur Bonilla, and other worldwide artists such as Minor Empire, Colum Sands, Los Pinguos, Eliza Gilkyson and The Teetotalers. Sunday night showcased Talavya, the mesmerizing tabla band from India, along

with Colum Sands, the stylings of Los Pinguos, The Teetotalers and David Francey. Another outstanding aspect of the MFMF was its first five-day intensive music camp that preceded event, said Edwards. As many as 90 participants aged five to 75 years old took part in classes in song, dance, writing, performance and musical instruments with artists attending the festival. “We’ll be doing it again. It was wildly successful,” said Edwards.

Danger lurks at every leafy turn

Don’t cut back on safe practices and preventative measures when playing in your garden

Green thumb

I

escaped death in the garden by half an inch last week while pushing a cracked bamboo pole into all-too-solid soil. It abruptly broke vertically. The force of pushing threw my head forward and a long, sharp dagger of bamboo skimmed past the carotid artery in my neck. I shan’t be using or saving damaged bamboo poles any more. It’s interesting that almost all articles on gardening injuries focus on back problems. Yet I’ve spoken with gardeners who have stranger, more serious yet equally preventable accidents. Gardeners on slopes, for instance, sometimes fall off retaining walls if they have no barrier. Rockeries also need caution – especially because heavy rain can silently erode the soil which supports the stonework. Aging really complicates rock gardening. I recall a wonderful West Vancouver gardener who was in her 90s and still actively planting. She explained she had no problem getting up into her rockery, but couldn’t always get down again. Large rockeries can be quite a problem for older gardeners even if they’re willing to crawl from spot to spot. Woodland slopes are easier even when steep. Wielding a long pole in each hand, one can stride along, almost flying over them – and when gardening must be done there, a long-handled fork or spade is a great stabilizer. In woodland or shade gardens, the rocks tend to be mossy – utterly beautiful but treacherous underfoot because moss under pressure slips away from its base. Even worse are wooden rounds used as garden paths or landscape ties used as step edges. These can be slippery while looking perfectly normal. Wire-netting nailed on these surfaces makes them much safer. Sharing gardens with wildlife can be challenging even in city gardens. Years ago my husband walked into a wasp nest while mowing the lawn. Not a sneaky hole-in-the ground nest, but a large paper ball nest partly concealed at head height within a young deodar cedar.

freezes controlled the wasps for me. Eye injuries while gardening are almost as common as back problems. Prime offenders are: shrub branches, the sharp ends of stakes, seeds which scatter violently from their pods and showers of earth when reluctant weeds suddenly release their grip. Even organic spray can be painful if it gets into eyes. Wearing large, curved safety glasses as a routine prevents almost all these accidents. Sunglasses protect better

Wasp nests high up on trees can often be tolerated, especially since wasps are fairly beneficial in the garden. But nests in the ground are horribly dangerous and not always easy to eradicate by organic methods. The one time I got chased by wasps was in summer while digging out an old, composted manure heap. I dug right into their nest before I realized my danger. It’s amazing how fast you can run with that kind of encouragement behind you. The rest of the manure stayed undug until winter

FONDO GRAN

ROLLS ALONG

– JEAN KONDA-WITTE/TIMES

The fast pack of lead cyclists cruise down hills on Farmer Road in Abbotsford Sunday morning during the early stages of the 160-km GranFondo. Below, cyclists of all ages and abilities take part in one of the three Fondo distances. Riders said they were ‘blown away’ by the beautiful Fraser Valley scenery. TROY LANDREVILLE Langley Advance

RESULTS: FASTEST TIMES

P

edal power ruled throughout parts of Abbotsford and Langley on Sunday. The Prospera Valley GranFondo, the first of its kind ever held out of Langley, drew nearly 1,200 cyclists for its three rides. This was one massive cycling event, designed primarily for amateurs. It included a 160 kilometre GranFondo, an 80-km MedioFondo, and the Sylvan Family Fondo, for children between the ages of six and 12 and their parents. “It was incredible. Everything ran smoothly. The traffic management plan worked flawlessly,” said George Lacny, media relations manager. The GranFondo started and finished at the Fort Langley National Historic Site, with riders heading south to Zero Avenue and then along the flats of the Fraser Valley, through farmland in Abbotsford to Arnold before returning back to the fort, making their way up and over

■ GranFondo 160 km male - Tim Abercrombie - 4: 05: 53 female - Sylvie Allen - 4: 38: 26 ■ MedioFondo 80 km male - Karl Probost - 2: 18: 29 female - Terry Kornutiak - 2: 34: 05 ■ Thule Hill Climb Challenge on Sumas Mountain (1.74 km climb) male - Christian Meier - 4: 54 female - Brenda Jelkin - 6: 19

Sumas Mountain along the way. The MedioFondo cyclists stayed mostly in Langley and western Abbotsford. Lacny said during the day, the response was overwhelmingly positive. “Everyone crossing the finish line said it was a phenomenal event, and they can’t wait till next year,” he said. Clouds and cool weather gave the cyclists some relief from last week’s sizzling mid-summer heat.

“The weather was perfect,” Lacny said. “It was cool and made for just the right environment for cycling. We had a couple of little showers but they didn’t hurt anyone.” Lacny described the GranFondo as a “world-class event.” “The comments from the [cyclists from] four U.S. states and four Canadian provinces were that they were totally blown away with how beautiful the country roads and the scenery was, and how welcoming the people were in the area.”

While times were recorded for the fastest cyclists, and a hill-climb determined who was able to summit Sumas Mountain the quickest, Lacny stressed the GranFondo was not a race, but a community event. “What’s more important for us was that this is a participatory kind of event,” Lacny said. “That’s what GranFondo is: it means big ride. It’s like-minded people enjoying the scenery and countryside. Whoever crosses the finish line first – that’s more for individual pride.”

HIGHLIGHTS...

Trinity Western men’s volleyball libero Tyler Koslowsky of Abbotsford was named to Canada’s national junior team Monday after putting together an impressive performance this past weekend at the National Team Challenge Cup in Gatineau, Que. The second-year-to-be Spartan and MEI grad – who helped his B.C. Red side to a fourth place finish at the NTCC; a tournament that is essentially a tryout for the national junior team – will now train for the next month at the National Training Centre in Gatineau in preparation for the 2012 NORCECA Junior Championship, which runs from Aug. 24 to Sept. 2 in Colorado Springs, Colo. “Tyler’s progression is much faster than we had thought,” said Spartans coach Ben Josephson. “We believed he would develop into one of the nation’s premiere libero players by the end of his career. But we didn’t think he would, in just a year and a half . . . establish himself as a premiere libero in his age class nationally. The coach credits Koslowsky’s tireless work ethic and a pursuit of technical perfection as keys to his success. “He cares about the details and his teammates and those two characteristics have led him to this point of representing his country in volleyball. We couldn’t be more proud of him and how far he has come.” – STAFF REPORTER

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The whole week is romantic. If you’re not in the market, the same influence brings you beauty, pleasure, joy in kids, and a favourable risk-reward outlook, in stocks, speculation, etc. An old flame could return. Remember, don’t start any major projects before Aug. 8. Love exists Sunday, though on “low heat.” A new/old friend might come Monday, and he/she will have an effect on your ambitions, career or status in the world. Work uncomplainingly Tuesday. Flirtation, joy, popularity and grand hopes for the future arrive Wednesday/Thursday. Retreat, lie low late week. Taurus April 20-May 20: This week starts with mysteries and changes (Sunday) but soon switches, Monday/Tuesday, into a more intellectual, legal, cultural atmosphere. These two days are an unusual mixture of friendliness, career blessings and monetary stability/luck tied to work or health – along with unpredictable nerves (Monday) and practical/ethical warnings (Tuesday). Remember, don’t start ANY important projects before Aug. 8. Your prestige soars midweek – at the very least, people call you Ma’am or Sir. Butter up higher-ups. Hopes come true Friday/Saturday. All week, seek home, kids, rest. Gemini May 21-June 20: This is your lucky year – best in 13. It started in June.Those of you born in May might already be feeling it. Remember two holdups: 1) now through Aug. 7, don’t start projects; 2) now through Aug. 30, karma is still “watching you,” so a) behave, b) try to figure out how your past actions have begat consequences, and c) seek others; reject independence. Though August makes you wait, it distracts you with enjoyable travel, friends, conversations, curiosity and discoveries. DON’T buy, invest, Monday/Tuesday. Love, understanding and inspiration come Wednesday/Thursday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Start nothing before Aug. 8. The main accent lies on money, earnings, possessions – and a sensual attraction. If one of these returns from the past, especially if from the “heavier side”Wednesday/Thursday, go ahead, grab a winner! (By “heavier” I mean sex and commitment more than sensuality, investment or debt reduction more than earnings, etc.) Tackle chores Sunday. Relationships offer conflict and disappointment, as well as prestige and comfort (and a valuable secret?) Monday/Tuesday. Pick well. Sweet, gentle understanding arrives Friday (best) and Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: I’d warn you against starting new ventures/relationships, but your present indecision is a natural deterrent. Relax, let events flow: the fears and uncertainties of the last 15 years have made you a mild control freak. Now through mid-2013, you’ll be much luckier if you let the cosmos have control. (E.g., you can’t force a wish to come true, but the cosmos – the matrix surrounding you – can, and likely will during this lucky year, bring your deepest wishes true.) Savour someone’s beauty Sunday. Work carefully Monday/ Tuesday. Exciting meetings midweek! Friday brings deeper fires. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Don’t start new ventures, investments or relationships before Aug, 8. Instead, handle overdue government or administrative tasks and paperwork; fulfill old obligations to shut-ins and charities; and seek spiritual horizons. Higher-ups still love you. Show them what you can do (especially Wednesday/Thursday) without starting new projects. Money flows swiftly to Aug. 23 (to you and through you: be careful with spending). Home sweet home, Sunday. Romantic notions can lure you into a stew of sexual urge and disappointment Monday/Tuesday. Exciting meetings Friday/Saturday.

July 29 - Aug. 4, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Expect popularity, optimism, social delights, flirtations and wish fulfillment. Before Aug. 8, they will be old wishes, former friends, old (light) flames. Before then, pursue unfamiliar faces at your peril – new relationships will blossom after the 8th. Until late August, you’ll be more assertive and determined than usual – but don’t go wild with this. Sunday’s for errands. Protect home, family Monday/Tuesday: love’s good, wise. Romance has a splendid chance Wednesday/ Thursday. (Married? Pursue kids’ programs, art, beauty, pleasure.) To work you go, Friday/Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start no new projects before Aug. 8. Meantime, any “investments” you made in the past in your career or reputation might now pay off (likely July 29 or Aug. 5/6). Work can be hard and burdensome until Aug. 23, but it carries future benefits, so keep at it. Benefits either continue to flow your way from past financial or intimate commitments, or your past actions now prevent such payoffs – but September onward, the bonanza gates will open. Chase money Sunday. Guard speech, writing, driving Monday/Tuesday. Success at home midweek. Romance, pleasure Friday/Saturday! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Start no new projects nor relationships before Aug. 8. An old flame (or a former “teacher”) might return – so might books, letters, philosophies and international or educational contacts from the past. Others remain gracious, generous – this will last for 11 more months. Your energy and charisma sail high Sunday. Be alert to money problems Monday/Tuesday. (A great friendship, love or romance might distract you.) Talk, travel, handle paperwork and errands Wednesday/ Thursday – all’s smooth, easy, friends are friendly! Settle into home, kids, garden Friday/Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Don’t start anything new before Aug. 8, especially in financial or intimate zones. This is an excellent time for research or self-examination. Your work scene is still pleasant, co-workers are affectionate, but bosses remain temperamental until Aug. 23. Their impatience hints that they are planning/handling a big increase in business, or a big project – and you, over the months ahead, will see your duties and hours expand. Rest Sunday. Your charisma, energy rise high Monday/ Tuesday: use them to solve home, career, income problems. Chase money Thursday/Friday: lucky! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: You’ll feel energized or flat, co-operative or belligerent, as relationships either please or defy you. Start no new projects/relationships before Aug. 8.Your romantic, speculative, creative and pleasure-loving instincts are running hot, but these contain a (mildly) negative karmic element until Aug. 30. So deflect – gently – those who chase you before then. (A Libra might have his/her eye on you – and to a Leo, you represent the future. But it’s Gemini who really has your heart. But – unless a former flame returns this week – wait.) Avoid head office, gov’t, Monday/Tuesday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Start nothing important before Aug. 8. August ends a lot of things: it ends (Aug. 7) the sweetness you’ve felt at home (but replaces it with very lucky cheerfulness and optimistic plans); it stops (by Aug. 23) a dangerous urge to invest or jump into someone’s bed without forethought; and it finally (Aug. 30) concludes an 18-month “period of loss” in real estate, home, parent-child relations and foundational ventures. This means September will be chock-full of opportunities (personal and business) – wait. Joy and rejection mingle Monday/Tuesday. You conquer Friday! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-727-3673
