Victim held up with syringe ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com

A

n Abbotsford woman was victim in a disturbing robbery when a masked suspect threatened her with a dirty syringe in broad daylight at an ATM drive-through on Tuesday. Abbotsford Pol i c e a re releasing a photo of the panicked victim and the assailant to the public in an effort to solve the case, said Const. Ian MacDonald. The brazen robbery is a serious concern, he said. “We have five still images, and her expression in all of them is absolutely harrowing,” MacDonald said. “You can see how terrifying this was.”

Vern Siemens harvests Pinot Noir grapes on a recent sunny day for his award-winning Mt. Lehman Winery.

HARVESTING THE HEARTACHE

A

GRAPE

First reported @

abbotsfordtimes.com

Best vintage ever for local winemaker

rare spell of late October sunshine bathes the broad-leafed vines at Abbotsford’s Mt. Lehman Winery. Vintner Vern Siemens pushes through twisting green stems to grab at a healthy batch of pinot noir grapes. “They call it the heartbreak grape for a reason,” said Siemens, as he cups a bunch of purple-hued fruit in one hand while struggling to snip it from the vine with the other. “It’s thick-stemmed with small bundles and snarly stems. It doesn’t like to be trained. “But when you get it right, you get a satiny texture that’s second to none and this year I think we’re going to get it right.”

Rochelle Baker

RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com Despite spending four of the five days last week in dreary, damp conditions while harvesting the 15 acres of grapes he has under cultivation, the winemaker is elated. Although things got off to an unnerving start following a cold and rainy spring, the weather was unusually warm and dry for most of July, August and September, said Siemens. As a result, the grapes are in near perfect health with thick skins and no rot. The quantity and size of the grapes are lower due to the slow spring start, but the fabulous fall

heightened the sugar content critical in creating a superb wine. “We’ll also have more concentrated flavours,” noted Siemens. “[The weather] saved the vintage.” That’s saying something for a small boutique vineyard that opened in 2009, but won last year’s Lieutenant Governor’s Award for Excellence for B.C. wines with its 2010 Viognier Reserve. Mt. Lehman Winery was one of 10 honoured with the award, but was the only winner to hail from the Fraser Valley. The winery is one of many popping up in the see HARVEST, page A10

The 37-year-old woman in an SUV attended the automatic teller machine at the Envision Financial branch in the 32700 block of South Fraser Way at 4:30 p.m. As she pulled up beside the ATM, a tall man wearing a ski mask, gloves and a hoodie approached from behind the vehicle wielding a syringe that he said contained AIDSinfected blood. He demanded the victim enter her PIN number, and then he finished the transaction to obtain a quantity of cash, said MacDonald. The robbery was planned and predatory, said MacDonsee ATM, page A7

Quake increases awareness

ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com

fter superstorm Sandy ravaged the U.S. coast and eastern Canada this week, and a 7.7 earthquake rocked northern B.C. Saturday, Abbotsford and Mission residents are thinking emergency preparedness, say emergency response officials. Abbotsford Fire Rescue Deputy Chief Mike Helmer said he’s been fielding anxious questions about how the city and its residents will weather a catastrophe. “There is definitely an increased awareness and anxiety around preparing for an emergency,” said Helmer, who is Abbotsford’s emergency program manager. The recent natural disasters should motivate people to update their emergency plans and identify hazards in their own neighbourhoods, said Helmer. The more people prepare for an emergency the more resilient the community will be in the face of disaster, he added. “Often people think, ‘When an earthquake happens, what is the city going to do for us?’ ” said Helmer, who stressed people should prepare to look after themselves for 72 hours. Assistant Mission Fire Rescue Chief

Larry Watkinson agreed on the importance of having an emergency kit and plan ready to go. “I don’t think people have a realistic notion of what fire, police and B.C. Ambulance will be able to do if there is a major event,” he said. “We might be dealing with hospitals . . . roads may be damaged due to flooding or dike breakages.” Abbotsford and Mission have response plans for any number of

First reported @

abbotsfordtimes.com emergencies, but each community has its unique dangers, said Helmer. With its proximity to the Fraser River, numerous railway tracks and oil and natural gas hubs and pipelines, Abbotsford’s top three most likely disasters are a flood, earthquake or hazardous spill – or a combination of any of them, said Helmer. One scenario could be high water and an earthquake endangering the dikes. Fortunately, the Matsqui dikes have been recently upgraded, he said. Mission’s most likely natural disaster is also flooding, particularly during the annual freshet, said Watkinson. “Both Abbotsford and Mission face

it yearly,” he said. But both cities have emergency plans in place, and with the limited flooding in recent years, have even been able to fine tune them. During an emergency situation, providing the public with accurate details and instructions is a top priority, said Helmer. Beyond the traditional print, radio and television, the city will employ social media such as Facebook and Twitter to share and obtain information from residents during a crisis. The Abbotsford Emergency Program may use residents’ photos and Tweets to help determine where to best deploy resources in event of a disaster, said Helmer. But nothing can beat education, planning and practise to prepare for a catastrophe, said the fire officials. “We’re in good shape. But we can never predict something like an earthquake, and high water can bring forth something you may not have planned on,” said Helmer.

n Abbotsford dental clinic is resorting to bribery to get kids to go easy on their Halloween candy. Stephen Wall, marketing manager for Clayburn Dental Centre, said if trick-or-treaters give up their candy to the clinic from Nov. 1 to 3, they’ll get money in exchange. The going rate for sweets is two bucks a pound, up to a maximum of $20 dollars. “We’re trying to promote oral health and cavity prevention,” Wall said. Hype around the three-day promotion has been greater than anticipated, he said, adding the media has been calling. But Wall isn’t expecting thousands of kids to show up and bankrupt the centre. “I promise we’ll keep our doors open for three days, and then we may never open them again,” he joked. Wall is of the opinion few children would part with their candy. But parents’ response on the clinic’s Facebook site has been positive, he said. Some predict kids won’t give up all their goods but sort through it and cash in the stuff they don’t like. “We’re very curious to see how this year will turn out,” said Wall. “If it’s a success and it’s something we can reasonably do next year, we will.”

Art Wars – a tribute to the trilogy

Epic-scale Star Wars oils will be shown at The Reach in 2013 PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

C

hris Woods opens a large Ziploc bag in his downtown Chilliwack studio and pulls out a yellowing child’s exercise book. It’s not an antique nor a grandfather’s journal; it’s not even that old. One line on the cover says “Chris” and below that, “ART!!!!!” So why is an accomplished artist – with major magazine covers to his name, 18 solo exhibitions across North America and who has received kudos from the likes of pop culturist Douglas Coupland – showing off drawings he did as a seven-year-old? Two words: Star Wars. Thirty-five years ago Woods was doodling X-wing and TIE fighters in his grade school art book like the rest of us. Today, he’s back at it with his latest project tackling the iconic science fiction films from a unique angle. For most males in their early 40s, the films in George Lucas’ original Star Wars trilogy of 1977, 1980 and 1983, constitute mythic cinema. These aren’t just science fiction films; Star Wars, the Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi became epic tales that integrated fantasy with the fabric of childhoods across North America. “By re-examining films that played a major role in the formative years of my generation

– PAUL HENDERSON/TIMES

Chilliwack artist Chris Woods revisited an art project he’s had on the go since he was seven to create his latest project, looking at the iconic science fiction Star Wars trilogy from the perspective of the films’ main antagonist, Darth Vader. I hope to examine what my childhood eyes may have missed,” Woods says. One way of doing that is to look at the stories and scenes of Star Wars through the films’ main antagonist, Darth Vader. “This is art with a capital A and really looks at the darker elements of the series.” The series of 14 “epic-scale” oil paintings

scheduled for summer 2013 at The Reach Gallery Museum in Abbotsford is entitled Sandstorm, a nod to the most famous (at least in Star Wars-geek circles) deleted scenes cut out of the saga. By using deleted scenes in addition to some scenes that appeared in the film from different angles, Woods attempts to put the viewer

into Vader’s black metal boots. One image shows a large tangle of green growth on Dagobah with Luke and Yoda barely present in the lower, right corner of the painting. Another shows a tender moment between Leia and an injured Luke. But the most representative painting of the show, the image that spurred Woods to create it all, is a poignant tableau showing a heap of dead stormtroopers in a bunker. Remember, this is Star Wars, a fictional tale filmed in the 1970s. But the scene is something Woods says is inspired by the pathos of a Eugene Delacroix painting or a Mathew Brady civil war photograph. “A lot of fan art is devotional but I’m trying to do this in a serious way,” he says, adding that he is a fan and he respects other fan art as well. Woods’ show is many months off but he has a lot of work ahead of him and he is fundraising for materials in a unique way. Using a website, indiegogo.com, he is “crowd source” fundraising to help him raise money for a number of important items. Those who give money are not just donating cash to a private individual as there are tons of very cool perks. From mixed-media prints for $50 “donations” to oil studies for $1,000, all the way to the yet-to-be completed “Death of Beast,” a seven-and-a-half-foot by five-foot oil painting for $14,000 (the full amount he is looking for); there are plenty of incentives. ◗ The fundraising campaign runs until Nov. 24 and can be seen at www.indiegogo.com/sandstorm.

he citizens of Mission are invited to give their input on the district’s upcoming budget planning, starting with the community budget consultation meeting on Nov. 5 at 6 p.m. at city hall. After bringing in a zero increase of municipal taxes for Mission for 2012, the council is proposing a budget and tax increase of 1.49 per cent for 2013. The district says the proposed increase has been achieved with minimal impact on district service levels. Key budget priorities are debt retirement and infrastructure replacement. Mission also proposes a two per cent increase for municipal utility user rates – for water, sewer, refuse and recycling and composting – as gradual utility rate increases will ensure that critical infrastructure can be built without borrowing from external sources. A brief presentation by the finance staff will be given at the Nov. 5 meeting before members of the public can

offer their views on the proposed 2013 budget. People can also submit their comments by email to tax@mission.ca. A budget can be accessed at the District of Mission website, at www.mission.ca. This document has details of the district’s budget and finances including how the proposed 1.49 per cent tax increase was determined. Copies of this document will be available on Nov. 5. Future finance meetings include: – Nov. 19, from 1 – 2 p.m., a council discussion of public budget consultation outcomes. – Dec. 17, 6:30 p.m., the first three readings of 2013 – 2017 Financial Plan Bylaw, in council chambers. – Dec, 9, the adoption of 2013 – 2017 Financial Plan Bylaw Agendas for finance committee meetings will be posted on the district’s website prior to the meetings. Call 604-820-3772 to confirme dates. The public is welcome and encouraged to attend these budget discussion meetings as well.

Abbotsford taxpayers scorched by $1.76 million Heat shortfall ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com

A

bbotsford taxpayers are on the hook for $1.76 million to cover the Abbotsford Heat hockey team shortfall, the city announced late Wednesday. Last season’s operating results will be presented to city council at its Monday meeting, said city manager Frank Pizzuto in a press release. “The Heat’s total revenue for the 2011/12 regular and playoff season was once again lower than we would have liked,” said Pizzuto. Lower than desired attendance and commercial sponsorship levels are factors in the deficit. “We are naturally disappointed by these results,” said Pizzuto. The average attendance required to meet the breakeven point is 3,905 paid customers; the paid customer base in 2011/12 was 2,653, according to the city. The Heat ownership group has a 10-year supply fee agreement with the city

which guarantees $5.7 million in annual revenue. The 2011/12 shortfall follows a payout of $1,305,511 for the 2010/11 season and $450,637 in the team’s inaugural 2009/2010 year. However, Pizzuto was still optimistic about the future of the team in Abbotsford. “The Abbotsford Heat provide an excellent professional hockey experience, great entertainment and an affordable entertainment option for everyone to enjoy. We will continue to work with the Heat and to focus on these assets moving forward.” The Heat and the city had hoped to capitalize on the opportunity presented by the NHL lockout but attendance this season has been fair, excepting the two sold-out games against the Vancouver farm team the Chicago Wolves at the beginning of the season. “With the ongoing NHL lockout, the opportunity for Abbotsford residents to enjoy NHL level hockey in their own community is certainly unprecedented,” said Pizzuto.

Dog whisperer coming to AESC Cesar Millan, the star of hit TV series Dog Whisperer, will be at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre at 7:30 p.m. on Nov. 6. Millan will bring his dog heeling secrets on how to build happier, healthier relationships between humans and their canine companions. “A dog’s world is one of instincts – this world is very different from the human world, which is fast-paced, full of stress and ultimately creates unbalance in dogs. The instinctual world is one of energy, harmony and calmness,” said Millan. “My new seminar tour will give dog owners the tools

to recognize how to create an environment of balance and calmness for their dogs. This will prevent and resolve every day problems. I hope that through understanding the world dogs live in, people will transform their dogs and maybe a bit of themselves at the same time.” A limited number of VIP tickets are available for the Cesar Millan Live seminar that include entry into a group session with Millan, set to take place after the seminar. Note, this event is for people, therefore only approved service dogs are permitted at the venue. The AESC is at 33800 King Rd., – IMAGE COURTESY WWW.CESARSWAY.COM/FOR THE TIMES Abbotsford.

AN EXTRA – APD PHOTO/FOR THE TIMES

A robber accosted this woman at an Abbotsford ATM.

Robbery was not random ATM, from page A1 ald, adding that it was unnerving the suspect behaved so nonchalantly. “On the camera you can see how methodically he does the ATM transaction, and when he’s done, he doesn’t run away, he walks away,” said MacDonald. “It’s likely this isn’t his first robbery . . . and we know these types of incidents often take place in sprees.” The robbery wasn’t random and the suspect must have lain in wait for some time for an appropriate victim, said MacDonald. “He was skulking there for a period of time before he selected single vehicle with a lone occupant.” Police are hoping somebody saw something, as the robbery occurred while the bank was open and in an area with lots of vehicle and pedestrian traffic.

The robber, who may Caucasian with a thin build, left the area westbound on foot. The victim wasn’t injured but was very shaken by the incident. The woman was right to adhere to the robber’s demands and is to be commended for wanting to make images of the incident public, said MacDonald. “She’s allowing us to disseminate the photo to because she wants to prevent others from going through the same thing,” he said. The APD wants residents to be diligent around ATMs in light of the incident. People should contact police if suspicious persons are observed around financial buildings, said MacDonald. “Certainly if somebody is lurking around an ATM, it would be in everybody’s best interest to pay attention and call police.” Anyone with information on the robbery should contact Abbotsford Police at 604859-5225 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

t’s no longer what you say that counts. It’s how you say it. Politicians have known that for some time. But it appears they’ve finally managed to convince the rest of us. The presidential debates south of the border are a fine example. It didn’t matter what President Barack Obama said in the first of the three debates. He didn’t “look” as interested in being there as Gov. Mitt Romney, and so, whatever he had to say was worthless. In the second debate, Obama came back to massacre Romney on facts and policy details. But the facts and policies didn’t matter, it was his demeanor that “won” the debate. He came out swinging, the way a president is expected to come out swinging. But Romney occasionally swung back, and so the outcome was “close,” despite the fact that Romney still didn’t answer specific questions about policy or how he might credibly approach accomplishing his promised tax cuts and so on, if he was elected president. It wasn’t what either of them said, it was how they said it. It reminds me of the old joke: “It’s how you hold your mouth.” In fact, a prominent news commentator actually said that the best way to determine who wins and who loses a debate is to watch it with the sound turned off. And that was from someone

BOB GROENEVELD

Odd thoughts who, of all people, should understand the importance of facts (and incidentally, facts are NOT negotiable positions on the state of reality). It’s a debate! It’s about discussing and arguing points. It’s not just the way you look. Ask a secondary school debating team member, if you don’t understand the concept. It’s pretty basic. Saying it with exactly the right kind of smile doesn’t turn fiction into fact. It doesn’t matter how confident you look, or whether you’re wearing the right suit. Even the odd joke or cleverly turned phrase, while it might help engage your audience, doesn’t change facts, which are the bottom-line currency in the debate exchange. And promulgating nonsense while as few people as possible are listening, or waiting until the underlying reality has been forgotten by most ordinary folks, or saying it over and over and over and over – all favoured bafflegab approaches regularly employed by politicians and the captains of industry – doesn’t make it true.

Or at least, I should say, it shouldn’t make it true. The unfortunate reality that truth really has become a negotiable commodity. Listen carefully to the Gateway Pipeline folks when they talk about safety. They don’t come straight out and say that the pipeline will be safe. They merely point out that it is in their best interests to make it as safe as possible. The provincial government has been trumpeting its “jobs plan” as a creator of 57,000 new jobs. An NDP press release correctly – and cleverly – notes that more than half of those jobs were created before the government’s special program was kicked off. And glosses over the fact that, nevertheless, those jobs have been created. Government sources are declaring victory in management of the 7.7 magnitude earthquake over the weekend – after all, no one was hurt. Naysayers point out that there were very few people in the vicinity to get hurt, and suggest that communications were poor and sparse. Always, both sides are playing the same game from the opposite ends of the field. And here we all are, caught in the middle.

e should all breath a sigh of relief that we ducked what could have been a massive disaster after Mother Nature decided to readjust one of the tectonic plates next to Haida Gwaii on Saturday night. Registering 7.7 on the Richter scale, this violent shaker was the largest earthquake in Canada in more than 60 years. Amazingly, it didn’t cause a tsunami due to the type of earthquake it was, and luckily no one was hurt. But the next one could do a lot of damage, should even a smaller tremor heave a little closer to the cities in the Lower Mainland. And the likelihood there will be some big earthquakes is not a theory – we sit on a pile of unstable plates constantly pushing at each other. The last really big one, a quake in Alaska on Good Friday in 1964, launched a tsunami that washed into Port Alberni as people were sleeping. And if you think that somehow our advanced technology will protect us from other natural events, just look to the east coast, where the montrous sub-tropical storm Sandy has put several states into emergency status, including New York. How ready are you and your family to face such a disaster? If you or your spouse commutes across one of the bridges into greater Vancouver, how would you communicate? What plans have you made for your children or elderly parents should a big quake rattles the B.C. coast? Do you have food, water, medications, and pet food to last a few days? Do you know where to turn off the gas to your house? If you only use a cell phone, how would you communicate if there was no power and your battery ran low? What do you do with your livestock if there’s a flood? The Haida Gwaii earthquake and the miserable tropical storm pounding the east coast should shake us out of our complacency enough to make some sort of emergency preparations. The Provincial Emergency Program, at pep.bc.ca, and both Abbotsford and Mission cities have emergency tips and lists to help us prepare to ride out such natural disasters. Get yourself and your loved ones prepared now – not after the event happens. ■ To comment on this editorial, e-mail us at letters@abbotsfordtimes.com.

Christian movie is hellishly bad Editor, the Times:

As many of you are aware, Hellbound? The Movie is making waves outside and within Christian circles. What do I think of it? I’ll begin with what is sometimes known as Thumper’s Law, a quote from the Disney movie Bambi, “If you can’t say somethin’ nice, don’t say nothin’ at all.” I do want to say something so here’s something nice: I’m glad that things of eternal and thus of the utmost importance are being talked about. We need to talk about them more. Really, is there anything more important than how and where we are going to spend eternity? But that’s it . . . the movie itself is rubbish. First, it suffers from the same problem that plagues every movie: by its very nature a movie can’t say enough, and therefore has to rely on sound bites to try to get its message across. That’s not the fault of the movie maker but of the medium itself. Second, this movie fails to live up even to the low standard required by the genre. If you’re going to rely on sound bites at least pick ones that best portray both sides of the debate that you claim to be engaging in. Remember, this movie claims to be Christian, thus one should expect some level of integrity here.

TO INCLUDE YOUR LETTER, use our online form at www.abbotsfordtimes.com, contact us by e-mail at letters@abbotsfordtimes.com, fax to 604-854-1140 or phone 604-854-5244. Letters must include first and last names and your hometown and should be fewer than 200 words. Instead, viewers are subjected to the likes of the Westboro Baptists, Bob Larson, John Hagee and Jerry Falwell as examples of the orthodox and traditional Christian view. Not for one second do I believe that a scholarly, reasoned apologetic stance (from the view the movie wants to denounce) was unavailable. Come on Kevin, over the time you spent making this movie, you couldn’t pin Packer or any other theologian of that caliber, down for two minutes? Instead, the movie relies on cheap theatrics, knowing chuckles and reminisces of bad theology one was taught as a child to try and convince us that hell is a joke at best, or a concerted effort by the big bad church to hold onto to its waning power at worst. The movie (and I can’t believe this is not deliberate) repeatedly misrepresents what the church has taught. For instance, the movie claims the church teaches that good people go to heaven and bad people go to hell. If the movie was honest, it would have said that what

the church has consistently taught is that there are no good people, and, if that was the criterion, no one would get to heaven. Instead the church has consistently taught that those who get to heaven get there by the sheer grace of God, not because anyone deserves it. There are indeed two classes of people – those who are bad and continue to reject the offer of salvation and as a result face eternal death, and those who are bad and run to Jesus to find forgiveness and eternal life. Perhaps the worst thing about the movie is that it shrinks what it claims to be promoting, namely the love of God. Really the point should be not whether there is a hell, but the awesome wonder that God Himself would become a human in order to endure everything that hell is, so that I wouldn’t have to. Only if we have a robust understanding of the horrors of eternal torment under the just and unceasing wrath of the Lamb (Rev 6: 17) will we understand and appreciate just how

much Jesus loves us as his children and what he went through to complete the adoption process. Sadly, we live in a culture (and I’m talking about the church culture) in which far too many people just don’t know their Bibles, don’t know what they believe or why they believe it, and have very little clue about church history and the debates that shaped it. This leaves a great many people vulnerable to the wimpy, sentimental view of God that this film promotes – and you know what Jesus says about those who cause the vulnerable, the little ones, to stray, don’t you? If not, read Matthew 18:6, Mark 9:42 and Luke 17:2. Rev. Doug Beattie Holy Cross Anglican Church, Abbotsford

Burning waste may leave another mess

wrong . . . yah, right. Toxic waste is expensive to dispose of and people have been caught before paying off others to dispose of it quietly. Not that this is the case here, but there were people that knew and they knew how to get the job done. On the days that that toxic waste was incinerated, thousands of people would have breathed in the uncapturable toxic particulates. Were you one? Please, strongly voice your opposition to garbage incineration. If not this will happen again and again. Gary Huntbatch Abbotsford

not really surprise me, but given the frequency of the dark side being reported, it still felt uplifting to experience a certain someone in our community finding my wallet in a parking lot, then attempting to reach me by phone, coming to the house and not finding anyone home, and then dropping it off at the police station. The sad part is I don’t know who this person is and I would dearly like to contact them. So, I will say thank you to this person publicly, but would you still please phone me at 604-854-5491.

It’s hard to believe that Metro Vancouver tried to hush up the dumping of toxic ash at the Cache Creek landfill from Burnaby’s garbage incinerator. But on the other hand they don’t want people to be aware of the dangers that garbage incineration brings – after all it could foil their plans to build the new one.

HARVEST, from page A1 Fraser Valley to challenge the more established competitors in the Okanagan. And being within driving distance of Metro Vancouver may give local vineyards an edge as more people develop a taste for wine. Certainly more Fraser Valley residents are picking up wine glasses, according to the B.C. Liquor Distribution Branch data. Last year, $15.86 million worth of wine was sold in the Fraser Valley. Potential is ripe in the valley for developing a viable wine tourism trade. Siemens focuses on sustainable, organic methods to produce his local vintages, a far cry from the questionable dandelion and raspberry wines he brewed in his youth. While pinot noir is Mt. Lehman’s flagship grape he also grows pinot noir, pinot gris, and a fair amount of chardonnay, which can

weather the cool and changeable Fraser Valley climate. “But we’re always trying new varieties,” Siemens said. “This year is the first time we’ve had some Gewürztraminer come on line.” Assisted by his wife Charleen and around dozen hired hands, Siemens will harvest enough to produce around 30,000 bottles of wine. After being hand picked the grapes are crushed and de-stemmed and left to macerate for a couple of days. Then the juice is pressed out and yeast added before the concoction is left to settle for 14 to 20 days, before being put into oak barrels to rest for up to 18 months before being bottled. The resulting wine should be on the shelves by 2014. “It’s a big time investment,” said Siemens conceded. “But this vintage should be one of our best ever.”

Thawing out a frosty marriage

Fraser Health tops in smart power

S

◗ Love with your actions. Be the first to forgive, the first

DAVE SCHAPANSKY

Faith that matters to serve and give, knowing that your spouse is the most important relationship that God will ever give you. ◗ Love quickly, respond to your mate’s needs right away – this says she is at the top of your list, not the bottom. ◗ Love consistently, don’t give up. Men, sometimes your first actions of love might be greeted with skepticism. That’s OK. It is likely she wants to see if it’s real or just another quick fix, and then back to same old, same old. ◗ Love courageously. It is no small task to learn to love again, and remember that God is with you. Do it with a sacrificial heart, not for selfgratification. And not a hint of a martyr complex. ◗ Seek advice from a marriage counsellor or pastor or even a trusted couple. ◗ And don’t forget to ask God for his help. There are going to be days when you will surely need it. After all, He is in the healing and restoration business.

Briefly

ome couples wonder how their top-down, wind in-your-face marriage descended into a wintry ride in a shopping cart with a frozen turkey. The big freeze can begin with overloaded schedules, where once fun activities are now just doing our share of responsibilities. No time for closeness, just busyness. A husband can emotionally withdraw to the tube, his work or toys, leaving an unfulfilled wife to withdraw physically (or vice-versa), and the household temperature drops a few more degrees. All the while, each believes they have earnestly tried and now secretly hopes for their spouse to respond. This leads to the belief that said frozen turkey lying beside us could not be “the one” and therefore “the one” must be still out there in plenty-of-fish-ville. The thought of divorce seems nasty, so can we return to the intimacy we once had? The answer is yes. The Bible says we love because God first loved us (1 John 4:19). God gave everything for us, he did not hold back – isn’t this the very same love your spouse is hoping for? Here are some practical thoughts on loving our spouse like God loves us:

With BC Hydro’s Power Smart Partner Program, Fraser Health has been able to achieve energy savings of more than seven gigawatt hours since 2009. That’s enough to power 702 B.C. homes and means a savings of almost $440,000. For its efforts, Fraser Health was named a top 10 Power Smart partner. The agency serves more than 1.6 million residents from Burnaby to Boston Bar, so the accomplishment is no small feat. Add that to the complexities of managing 26,000 staff, 2,500 doctors, 6,500 volunteers, 12 acute care hospitals and 7,800 residential long-term care beds operate 24-seven, and you can bet the energy bills are high. By implementing more than 28 Power Smart Partner projects, that include lighting, air-handling unit coil cleaning, variable frequency drives and digital control upgrades, Fraser Health was able to creatively manage energy consumption. To recognize its effort and commitment to energy conservation, Fraser Health has been presented with the Power Smart Excellence Award for Leadership.

YOU AND THE LAW BEWARE OF FACEBOOK IF SUING FOR INJURIES What you post on Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, YouTube or other social media can come back to haunt you. This is especially true if you say the back injury you suffered in a car accident severely restricted your activities, but Facebook photos show you skiing down black diamond runs. Of course this is only a problem if what you say at pre-trial questioning or trial can be contradicted by such postings, allowing the other side to show that your claimed injuries and limitations are exaggerated or don’t exist. Take the 2010 case of Mr. M, 22, injured in three separate accidents over five years. He first hurt his right wrist, then (second accident) his right knee and finally (third accident) his back. He claimed this affected his ability to work and enjoy recreational activities. But photos posted on Facebook showed him playing football, kneeling on a tube while being towed behind a boat, kneeling while posing with friends and sitting curled up in a clothes dryer. This and other evidence proved that some of Mr. M’s claims were exaggerated and inconsistent with his actual condition. The damages awarded to him for “pain and suffering” took this into account. In another case, 22-year old Ms. S was injured in two car accidents, four years apart. She claimed the resulting ongoing headaches and neck, back and hip pain limited her ability to have fun and reduced her future earning capacity as a nurse. But her Facebook profile showed her rock climbing, white-water rafting, in a soccer uniform and at a golf driving range. This and other evidence of sports activity after the accidents didn’t match her description of her incapacities, which the court also factored in her compensation award. The courts do try to balance your privacy

rights in Facebook postings (and the rights of others) against the rights of the defence to get full disclosure of material relevant evidence. And, after looking at photos posted on Facebook, the court will sometimes comment they aren’t very helpful. But in appropriate cases, the courts will even order you to disclose to the other side photos or videos not accessible to the public that you shared only with “friends” and family. So privacy settings on Facebook and general privacy rights may not protect you. A recent ruling illustrates this. Ms F, a first-year law student at the University of Victoria, was rearended in a car accident. She claimed continuing neck and back pain and headaches, saying her injuries affected her recreational and social activities, employability and future prospects. But she travelled extensively after the accident and also went hiking, scuba-diving and wake-boarding (though with some restrictions and pain). Her private Facebook profile, which couldn’t be seen by the general public, could be viewed by 890 “friends” and stored 759 photos and one video. She also had some 12,000 other photos. In a pretrial hearing, the court ordered her to disclose those that showed her participating in a certain “Law Games” social-and-sports tournament plus those taken on vacations since the accident. But she was allowed to edit the photos to protect the privacy of other people in them. If hurt in an accident, consult your lawyer, be truthful about the nature and extent of your injuries, and consider limiting your Facebook activities.

Gallery 7 makes Sense HOME SELLERS Find out what homes down the street sold for! free computerized list w/pics of area home sales and current listings.

A

bbotsford’s community theatre Gallery 7 opens its season with Sense and Sensibility, a Jane Austen classic that is a favourite with audiences and actors. Adapted for stage by Jon Jory, Austen tells the story of two middle class sisters seeking the right man, as well as financial security, in England’s early 19th century. Elinor is enamoured by the unassuming and awkward Edward, while Marianne is swept off her feet by the vivacious but perhaps not as reliable Willoughby. When the men’s secret lives are revealed, the sisters depend on one another for support in their heartache, and discover in the process the balance between what the heart wants and what the heart needs. “Sense and Sensibility explores themes such as love, relationships, trust, family and coping with loss and rejection,” said Gallery 7 Theatre’s artistic director Ken Hildebrandt. “These are realities we all encounter. With Austen’s story, we’re forced to face them head on, to explore and evaluate them, and hopefully be inspired and challenged as a result.” Playing the roles of Marianne and Elinor are Amanda Thiessen and Katherine Hill, respectively. Roguish Willoughby is played by Matt Veenbaas, and newcomer Josh Reeves is Col. Brandon. Other

UFV ranked Top 5 in Canada Hoopsters look towards stellar CIS season

Award for her determination, perseverance and unwavering spirit battling career threatening injuries. “The team is excited and is looking forward to the challenges of the CW season,” said head coach Al Tuchscherer. “This is the most veteran our team has been in several seasons and we are hoping the experiences of the past two seasons will serve us well. “We are a team that needs to work hard every night to compete with the best teams and I think our group embraces that mentality.”

or the first time ever, the University of the Fraser Valley men’s and women’s basketball teams are both ranked in the Top 5 in Canada. The men, defending Canada West silver medalists and CIS ‘Final 4’ finalists, are ranked fourth to start the season. The women’s team start the 2012 campaign ranked third in Canada; last year the Cascades finished eighth in the CIS Top-10 poll. They start their regular season this weekend in Calgary against the Mount Royal Cougars. On Saturday the Cascades men wrapped up a perfect Honda Way Classic, beating McMaster University 81-48 to go unbeaten in the threeday tournament at the Envision Athletic Centre. Sam Freeman led all scorers with 31 points to be named the Cascades player of the game Saturday. “Sam was excellent tonight, his shots were accurate and his scoring touch was on,” said head coach Adam Friesen. Kevon Parchment hit for 12 points and Kyle Grewal added 11 points and eight total rebounds. On Friday, the Cascades defeated Lakehead University 88-70 in day two of the classic, with Grewal leading the way with 31 points; Parchment added 18 and Jordan Blackman picked up 15.

Women’s basketball preview

The Cascades will be led by Aieisha Luyken of Mission who averaged 12.4 points per game last season.

UFV guard Kevon Parchment was all over the boards Friday night as the Cascades beat Lakehead University 88-70 in day two of the Honda Way Classic at the Envision Athletic Centre. They won the final 81-48 over McMaster Saturday. Sarah Wierks of Chilliwack, who was named to the 2010-11 All-Canadian rookie team, averaged 9.3 points and 9.8 rebounds per game and has become a steady force in the middle of the Cascades lineup. Nicole Wierks is one of five players

in her fourth year and will be looked to for veteran leadership on the floor; she averaged 30 minutes per game while contributing 10 points and six boards per night. She was named the Canada West recipient of CIS Tracey MacLeod

The Cascades men are looking forward to defending their second place finish last season in Canada West. The team went through several changes over the summer and emerged with a new head coach Adam Friesen, former star player at Trinity Western University. “We have an exciting blend of veterans and very talented first year players,” said Friesen. The Cascades are led by their 2011-12 Male Athlete of the Year Kyle Grewal of Surrey who averaged 14.6 points and 7.1 rebounds per game. Grewal had a monster CIS championship tournament, breaking UFV’s single game scoring mark with 35 points in the 89-86 bronze medal game loss. He was named to the CIS ‘Final 8’ all-tournament team. Friesen is also looking to Sam Freeman and James York for oncourt leadership. Top recruits include Kevon Parchment and Hudson Simon, both of Toronto, Ont. and local high school all stars Manjodth Dulay and Luke Morris. ◗ The Cascades first regular season home games will be Nov. 9 – 10 when they host the University of Victoria at the Envision Athletic Centre.

W.J. Mouat senior girls cross country team of (from left), Alicia Unruh, Callum Pilgrim, Amanda Thompson, Alex Siemens and Sarya Ross were Fraser Valley champions on Saturday.

.J. Mouat’s senior girls cross country team took the top three places at the Fraser Valley Cross Country Championships Wednesday at Aldergrove Park. Hawks runners dominated the 4.5 kilometre race with Callum Pilgrim finishing first (16:48), Alicia Unruh second (16:55) and Alex Siemens in third (17:03). “Our senior girls did extraordinarily well,” said W.J.M. cross-country coach Cameron Smith. “They finished 1-2-3 and won the overall Fraser Valley title in the senior division. And two are Grade 10s. “They are just a great group of girls. They have a goal in mind, doing well at provincials and working as a team,” said Smith. “It’s a pretty cool concept. Any one of those girls could have gone on [to win] but they

stayed together for the team.” Two other scoring members of the Mouat team were Sarya Ross in 18th and Amanda Thompson who finished 39th. The Mouat boys also did well, finishing fifth overall to earn a trip to provincials. Mouat accumulated a low score of 43 points and easily won the team title ahead of last year’s champion Walnut Grove (74 points), Charles Best (78 pts.) and a strong Abbotsford Christian team (88 pts.). Nineteen teams and 177 runners took park in the senior girl’s event. The three Mouat medalists were in a race of their own for most of course. Siemens’ led for a majority of the first three kilometres but then Pilgrim took over and opened up a gap of 50 metres to win the race by eight seconds. Mouat will now be one of the favoured teams at the provincial championships in Prince George on Saturday.

Bearcat tops in PACWEST A

pril van Wieren of Columbia Bible College was named PACWEST Athlete of the Week for Oct. 28. The fourth year middle and team captain was the steady presence for her CBC Bearcats in a volleyball sweep of Douglas College on the weekend. Van Wieren had nine kills, three stuff blocks and four aces on Friday as the Bearcats opened the weekend with a 3-0 win over the hometown Royals. She followed that up with an equally dominant performance on Saturday with 11 kills, two stuff blocks and two aces as the Bearcats repeated their 3-0 result from the night before. Several of her kills on Saturday came at potentially momentum changing times and allowed the Bearcats to pull away from a solid Royals team in each of the three sets. The two wins helped bump the Bearcats into third place in the PACWEST standings. “April has started this season right were she left off last year,” said head coach Duncan Harrison. “She is not only the statistical leader on offence but she has become the emotional and mental leader of her team, able to provide a word of encouragement or an equally important kick in the butt to her teammates when needed. April has become a true leader and inspires her teammates both on and off the court.”

I’m so proud of how our entire team battled.”

Cancer June 21-July 22: Romance, adventure, creativity, beauty, pleasure, sports and games fill the weeks ahead. Not this week, but the next two, could bring an old flame. Judge whether this is worth taking up again. What were the original problems? Your energy and charisma ride high Sunday – but don’t start any important new relationships (old flames excluded) or projects before Nov. 26. Chase money, buy and sell Monday to Wednesday – but don’t buy big or expensive things. Travel, communications lure you late week (Thursday best). Be patient: answers can take a long time. Home, family Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Lie low, rest and think Sunday. Your energy and charisma bounce back Monday to Wednesday. You attract admiration and ride a wee winning streak these three days. (It would be stronger if this month were not so domestic and “ending-oriented.” Still, it’s probably enough to put you over the top – or rescue you. Obama’s a Leo.) Still, until Nov. 26, it’s not a good idea to begin anything significant, buy anything important, nor initiate a relationship. An old love affair or a favourite child might return – it’s good, but short. Chase money late week: but buy nothing important. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Start/buy/love nothing new before Nov. 26. Until then, you’re not seeing all elements of a situation or project. This leads to minor delays or mistakes with ongoing ventures, but proves deadly to new ones, if started during this interval. Do old or ongoing things only, especially in home and career zones. You might revisit an old haunt. Sunday’s useless but fun – enjoy! Retreat, lie low Monday to Wednesday. Re-examine all planned action: any flaws? Your energy and charisma surge upward late week. A career-money plum awaits your pluck! Buy NOTHING significant Saturday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent lies on depths, mysteries, lifestyle changes, sexual urges, large finances, partnership finances, and commitment. It’s an all-or-nothing time. New relationships (formed in the last year) either grow deeper, or break apart. Your subconscious rises to the surface, letting you understand or glimpse your motives, true desires, even your destiny. Start nothing new before Nov. 26. An old flame might “appear” in the ten days ahead; after that, a former lust object or financial or lifestyle idea might return. If good then, good again. Romance colours MondayWednesday. Taurus April 20-May 20: The general accent lies on relationships, opportunities and challenges, cooperation and disunity, allies and enemies. Relocation might appeal. However, do not start anything important, especially in these areas, before Nov. 26. Until then, a relationship from the past might re-appear and grow important, presenting you with a choice. Safest approach: don’t make any decisions before late November. Sunday’s for superficial things. Focus on home, security and property Monday to Wednesday (but don’t buy anything). Romance, creativity visit late week. Chores, Saturday: be safe. Gemini May 21-June 20: Start nothing new before Nov. 26. An opportunity (and/or relationship) from the past might re-appear in the days ahead, but by next week the things returning are chores. You might have to redo something at your place of employment, or fill in at a former position. Watch schedules and supplies: disruptions and delays are likely, so plan well ahead, and have a back-up arrangement. Buy nothing Sunday. (It would prove useless.) Travel, communicate Monday-Wednesday. Be home, attend to family, property, security late week. Romance, Saturday? (Better in evening, night.)

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: You might feel ambitious Sunday, but your efforts would be wasted – relax. Now to Nov. 26, do not launch any new enterprises, whether in business,practical or family affairs,or love. They would tend to run in circles and never “finish.” Old ventures, circumstances might re-appear in the next three weeks, especially in intellectual, learning, travel or governmental zones. If these are obligations, handle them. If opportunities, examine once, then grab ‘em. A former money opening might return next week or the next. Social delights arrive Monday-Tuesday. Retreat, contemplate late week. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Your energy, charisma and pizzazz ride a wave of joy to late month – enjoy it! But don’t start new projects of any kind, especially in financial, sexual and social spheres. Stick to the on-going, or reprise past, abandoned projects – these can succeed. Your heightened magnetism might attract someone from your past, particularly next week. Watch for mistakes, check your bank account, repeat instructions or phone numbers. You’re ambitious Monday-Wednesday: but remember, nothing new. Social joys, popularity, light romance and delicious optimism visit you late week. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Lie low, rest and contemplate. Your energy reserves are low. Take care of your “nest” (and nest egg). DON’T start new projects or relationships before Nov. 26. Past contacts and ongoing obligations/work roles are best. A former relationship could appear – good, all things being equal, before Nov. 14; not so good for love, good for therapy and confessions Nov. 14 onward. Someone could make your heart rise happily late week. Research or rest Sunday. Your intellect awakens Monday to Wednesday. Ambitions, authorities figure prominently Thursday/Friday: behave!

Nov. 4 - 10, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Wishes can come true over the next three weeks – old wishes. At least one or two joys from the past will appear – a former light, fun romance, a past group of friends, a formerly planned then abandoned social, convention or political event, a former bright plan. You’re happy! But DO NOT start new projects or relationships, especially in these zones before Nov. 26. Relax, worship Sunday. Mysteries, financial and sexual urges appear MondayWednesday. DO NOT commit. Travel, intellectual and legal areas are highlighted late week. Saturday’s ambitious: night time’s best. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your career, ambitions, status and reputation are highlighted this month. (You seldom care about reputation because you’re usually innocent of bad motives.) A former career role might return. In all areas, avoid starting new projects, plans or relationships before Nov. 26. Instead, stick with ongoing situations, and protect these from mistakes, misunderstandings, missed meetings or supply shortages. A former friend might return briefly, to point the way. Exciting meetings, relationships fill early week (not Sunday). Mysteries and sexual, financial urges visit late week. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your dreams, plans and intellect turn backward into the land of revision this week to Nov. 26 – start nothing important before that date. Instead, address missing factors, read and research, and stick with ongoing projects and relationships – or reprise past situations and links. Sunday’s sweet, romantic, pleasurable, but with little result. Tackle routine chores Monday to Wednesday. Your relationships, good and difficult, fill Thursday/Friday (Thursday better). An investmentproperty deal, or sexy-security attraction, lights up mid-to-late week. timstephens@shaw.ca

LIFE IS TOO SHORT “Life is too short to wake up with regrets. So love the people who treat you right. Forget about the ones who don’t. Believe everything happens for a reason. If you get a chance, take it and if it changes your life, let it. Nobody said life would be easy, they just promised it would most likely be worth it. ENJOY LIFE NOW – IT DOES HAVE AN EXPIRATION DATE!” ~ by Michael Gartner
