Mission riding stretches to include Ashcroft and Lillooet ing, bounded on the west by Brander Road and the Sumas River in the east. The new constituency will also stretch across an expansive geographical area to include Kent and Harrsion Hot Springs and then up through the Thompson-Nicola Regional District, absorbing the towns of Ashcroft, Lytton and Cache Creek, and into the Squamish-Lillooet Regional District including Subdivisions A and B and the Municipality of Lillooet. The changes to the electoral map were made to keep about 100,000 residents in each riding. Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge-Mission MP Randy Kamp said although Mission, the largest population in the new electoral district, will be well served in the new riding, it will be challenging for the elected MP to meet the demands created by the mix of demographics and large geographical area in the new constituency. Kamp said it makes sense for him to continue to represent the Pitt-Meadows-Maple Ridge riding as he was born in and lives in Maple Ridge. “But I’m a little disappointed because I enjoyed representing Mission,” he said.

he federal ridings of Abbotsford and Mission have been extensively redrawn with new changes planned for Canada’s electoral map. The existing electoral district of Abbotsford has been divided with most of the urban portion of the riding remaining within the new boundaries. However, a good portion of the rural area north of the City of Abbotsford has been incorporated into the new electoral district of Mission— Matsqui—Fraser Canyon, which straddles the Fraser River. The new Abbotsford riding is bounded on the west by Mt. Lehman Road north to Maclure Road and runs in an easterly direction along Bateman, Straiton, McKee and Sumas Mountain roads and along the Sumas River east until Boundary Road. The City of Abbotsford’s rural areas east of Bradner Road, south of Highway 1 and east of Mount Lehman Road will be absorbed into the Fort Langley-Aldergrove riding. Mission is being dropped from its current riding that includes Pitt Meadows-Maple Ridge.

Ex-cop fined $500 for lying about crash JENNIFER SALTMAN The Province

A

former Abbotsford Police officer offered a tearful apology Tuesday after admitting to lying about a crash he was involved in while driving his police vehicle. “I apologize to . . .” Nathan Brown said, faltering. “I just want to say that this wasn’t a true representation of myself or a reflection of the Abbotsford police, and I do apologize.” Brown, 31, who began as a constable with the Abbotsford Police Department in 2006, was charged in October 2011 with obstructing justice. He pleaded guilty in B.C. Provincial Court in Abbotsford to the Motor Vehicle Act charge of making a false statement in an accident report, and was handed a fine. On the afternoon and evening of April 14, 2011, Brown and a number of other officers gathered at an Abbotsford Police Association social event, where liquor was consumed. During the evening Brown’s supervisors encouraged him not to drive home. After they realized Brown had left, a supervisor drove by his house and noticed that his police-issued vehicle was in his driveway. The next morning, around 6:30 a.m., Brown called the detachment to report that he had been in a minor accident with his police car. He said that he had been leaving a McDonald’s drive-thru when he spilled coffee on himself and drove into a lamp standard. “He led officers to believe this accident had just occurred,” said Crown prosecutor Brian Fell. About six days after the incident, Brown asked for a meeting with his supervisors.

The meeting took place on April 26, 2011, during which Brown admitted to lying about when the accident had occurred. He said that his description of the incident was correct, but it had actually happened on his way home from the association event. He said he shouldn’t have driven home, but he did not believe he was impaired. Brown was placed on administrative leave and an internal investigation was launched. After a disciplinary hearing in March 2012 he was given a 10-day suspension without pay for discreditable conduct and fired for deceit. Brown had applied to the Office of the Police Complaints Commissioner to have his dismissal reviewed and was granted a public hearing, but he abandoned his appeal in December. The worst part for Brown, according to defence lawyer Maegan Richards, was losing a job that he truly loved. After he was fired, Brown and his family moved in with his in-laws in Castlegar and he now has a job completely unrelated to policing. Richards said Brown excelled as a police officer, which showed in positive performance reviews. He was described in letters of recommendation as being truthful and adhering to ethical and moral values. The lie was completely out of character for Brown, Richards said. Judge John Lenaghan agreed. The defence had suggested a $1,000 fine, but under the circumstances, Lenaghan said he did not see a reason to treat Brown differently from any other member of the public and imposed a $500 fine, plus a mandatory $75 victim surcharge.

Bill Fletcher has been appointed Superintendent of Schools in Mission effective Jan. 24. Fletcher’s career in education began in Mission in 1976 when he became a teacher/principal relief a t D e w d n e y, Fe r n d a l e and Silverdale elementary schools. He taught at Cherry

Hill from 1977 – 80 before moving into administration in 1980 when he became principal at Deroche. Since then he has been an administrator at several Mission schools, both elementary and secondary. Fletcher served with distinction as district principal of the Aboriginal Program.

For the last seven months he has also taken over the duties of acting superintendent. While maintaining this double role, Fletcher initiated an examination of the district’s fiscal management, opened discussions on the formation of a traditional elementary school and started a dialogue about restructuring the district’s high school configuration. – STAFF REPORTER

Solid work by unsung help S

omething I’ve grown to appreciate in my 18 years in this community is that things aren’t always as they appear, and that work behind the scene doesn’t get the recognition it often deserves. I’ve grown to appreciate the selflessness of these community builders, and how they often deal with some of a community’s most challenging problems, while others are recognized publicly for doing their work. It’s true about every community I suppose, but the point was really hammered home for me last week when I read local media accounts of the evacuation of 15 lowincome tenants from the Tessaro Villa apartments at 33412 Tessaro Cr., just west of Five Corners. The media stories told about the building being a fire risk — among other things — and how it was populated by drug-using, welfare recipients who put little importance on things like laws, cleanliness, health or safety . . . and how their absentee landlords cared even less. The stories talked of urine and feces in the hallways that were pockmarked by holes in the walls and lined by carpet so filthy it made workers retch. The media reports talked about the lack of safety for these tenants, the city’s growing attention with police and fire service visits, and the subsequent city hall declaration that the building was unsafe, and the subsequent eviction notices. Many upstanding community service groups were listed for their roles in the process that brought

KEVIN GILLIES

Valley life about the building’s closure. And indeed these agencies do great work in our communities. What none of these reports talked about was the people who actually went into the building and did the grunt work of hauling away the evicted tenants’ personal effects. But those work-crew members sure had some stories of their own. The HOME Society is an Abbotsford-based group of people that helps support folks in the community with special needs, and this agency has put together a work crew that does everything from mowing lawns for group homes, to delivering goods to those in need, to helping hoarders reclaim their lives. I have worked for this agency on and off since its inception in 1995. It was the HOME Society crew that pulled on their boots and gloves, plugged their noses, and went into that building to move out the majority of those tenants. “It was horrible,” one of the crew members told me last week. “There were needles on the ground, blood everywhere, and the smell was horrible. We were stepping over people and moving in the dark.” One room, another crew worker

told me, was so covered in dog feces, except for the mattress the dogs slept on, that it was impossible to enter the room without stepping in feces. He said it was so disgusting, they eventually decided to leave that room as it was. “From one unit we hoofed 102 boxes down four flights of stairs before we saw any furniture,” said another crew member. “The woman was a hoarder.” The HOME Society work-crew members grimaced as they told the tale, of the four days they spent going up and down the stairs in our community’s underbelly, dealing with the kind of stuff none of us would ever dream of having to do; and that we often turn a blind eye to in our efforts to avoid it. There are many “crews” of this nature working silently in the background who are not recognized in media stories or public accolades. I’m certain I’m continuing this trend by not naming others who were involved in this move, and for that I apologize. But today at least, I thank the HOME Society crew, and all their counterparts throughout Abbotsford and Mission, for taking on the unpleasant tasks they do – ones that no one else will. Thanks for doing society’s thankless work. You are an invaluable commodity in our community. ■ Kevin Gillies has been a journalist

Hopes Idle No More keeps moving Editor, the Times:

After reading Robert T. Rock’s last two letters to the Times regarding First Nations and the Idle No More movement, I felt compelled to offer my rebuttal. His lack of relevant research presented to support his position, along with his prejudiced and inaccurate stereotyping of these people show his lack of knowledge on this topic. It is ironic that the person whose letters consistently contain his own whining, would accuse others of whining. Nowhere does he mention what led to the Idle No More movement. Instead his letters only share his ignorant and harmful views. The only statistic or ‘fact’ he points out is that 62 per cent of people agree with him. Is this to show us that he has a herd mentality? It would have been more useful if he had given us his views on the questionable legality of the implementation by the federal government of bills C45 and C38, considering this was the impetus for the Idle No More movement. Another relevant point he ignores is how these bills go against the UNDRIP (UN Declaration of Rights for Indigenous Peoples). His letters only show he feels it’s okay to take for over 200 years and then not give back, as he considers that reverse racism.

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.

How does one make up for centuries of injustice without giving back? I say it is more reasonable to limit the paying back to a period of 200 years, to be fair. I totally support Idle No More, as they are looking out not only for First Nations children but also the rest of the citizens of Canada who want to see the waterways protected. Ken Garrett Abbotsford

Cash comes from the folks who work hard Editor, the Times:

Regardless of where we stand on the question of needle exchange for drug addicts, one thing is certain: the forum held Jan. 29 was not unbiased. Speakers wanting to posit views not in line with Fraser Health, were generally cut short. The moderator, Dr. Adrienne Chan wasted a lot of time ‘rephrasing’ questions from the floor, as if the common folk don’t know how to speak English, and as if the panel were too dull to comprehend the questions posed to them. Dr. Chan and Fraser

Health narrowed the scope of the meeting so that the focus was neatly confined to the parameters designed to make a compelling case for their demand that our City remove the by-law that forbids needle-exchange in Abbotsford. You want to bring up the science, proving needle exchange programs don’t result in a decrease in Hepatitis C? Nope, this forum won’t allow a discussion of the research papers. And anyway, all naysayers “lie using statistics” . . . a comment the learned Dr. Chan did in fact read out. Anyone wanting to propose that detox actually works, and helps people to escape the terrible bonds of addiction. Nope, we are not here to talk about detox. Abstinence? Nope, not on the table. So while any caring person in the room, would at once declare themselves on the side of ‘Harm Reduction’, Fraser Health and Dr. Chan have narrowed the meaning of those words to only one component – provide addicts with all the paraphernalia they want, to keep them enslaved to life-destroying habits.

CORNERSTONE CHRISTIAN SCHOOL BEAUTIFUL MUSIC, TOGETHER

– SUBMITTED/FOR THE TIMES

Cornerstone Christian School recently invited students from Upper Sumas and Centennial Park elementary to join them in an interactive concert featuring pianist Roy Tan and violinist Rosemary Siemens. Children interacted with the musicians, reading a story to music and singing O Canada in French, with CCS Choir singing with the duo. There wasn’t a whisper about where the money comes from to fill those clean needles provided by our tax dollars. But we all know where the insane amount of money needed to feed the drug demon comes from. The money comes from decent folk who work, who provide the homes and cars and possessions that druggies steal. Every mail box in my neighbourhood is pried open and emptied – to fill Fraser Health’s clean needles? Good job Fraser Health. Gerda Peachey Abbotsford

Another foundation for taking axes Editor, the Times:

I’m sure that those ‘first time buyers’ out there looking to buy a new home will be very excited our provincial government is offering you some of my tax money to help you do that. You are being offered $10,000 ‘tax free’ towards the cost of a new home that qualifies for the grant. Of course all that happens is that the developer gets to charge you $10,000 more for that home, instead of reducing the

price by that same amount. And I think that we can guess that these said developers are supporters of the provincial Liberals. In short, my tax dollars go to the government, the government gives it to you and you obligingly give it to the developer. On the other hand, maybe it’s all to do with the HST on new homes ending when BC returns to GST/PST on April 1 and the government loses its 7 per cent. Either way it’s pretty sneaky.

Metro trashes chance for panel observer

KELLY SINOSKI AND ROCHELLE BAKER Abbotsford Times

A

bbotsford’s mayor and the chair of the Fraser Valley Regional District are dismayed with Metro Vancouver waste committee’s decision to deny the FVRD an observer on the independent expert panel overseeing the proposed waste-to-energy project. Mayor Bruce Banman said he was “not surprised but sadly disappointed” by the committee’s decision. “It’s a slap in the face and I expect better,” said Banman. “They are supposed to apprise us of what they are doing, and they want to hide away behind closed doors.” The B.C.

be built or where it will happen, approval has been granted. “Whether people like it or not, that decision has been made,” Brodie said. Langley Coun. Gayle Martin agreed with having a political liaison committee, saying if they didn’t do it, the FVRD might use it against them in the final decision. “No matter how much consultation we do, the Fraser Valley is going to disagree with the outcome. That concerns me . . . how much clout are they going to have with the minister?” she asked. FVRD chair and Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz also expressed disappointment with Metro’s decision. FVRD has a qualified engineer that would have been capable of understanding the technologies

under consideration, she said. “FVRD staff need to be part of discussion to ask critical questions on the technology because Metro seems to have drunk the Kool-Aid.” However, Gaetz said she was pleased with the decision to set up the political liaison committee. Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan voted against forming a political liaison, saying it validates the FVRD’s concerns about air quality, which are likely more affected by the streams of car and truck traffic travelling though the valley. He argued it was critical that the experts be free to do their job. Metro Vancouver is wrapping up its request for technology, and expects to meet with 33 potential proponents later this month.

Air travel tips for B.C. Family Day & beyond T

his month marks the beginning of a peak season for airports all across Canada as families escape to warmer temperatures or take advantage of the snow and hit the slopes. With more families traveling, there is often an increase in security screening-related issues however. The Canadian Air Transport Security Authority offers these helpful tips to ensure a stress-free airport security screening: ■ Boarding pass and ID for every member of the family should be out and ready for the screening officer. ■ Everyone’s overcoats including suit jackets, blazers and sport jackets will need to be removed and placed in the bins provided. ■ Avoid wearing shoes with metal arches, buckles, steel toes or shanks, as well as belts with big metal buckles. ■ Laptop computers will

A PLACE FOR YOUTH TO BELONG “I love the AYC because it’s a place where you feel you can fit in” Andrew, AYC Youth The Abbotsford Youth Commission (AYC) exists to identify, promote, improve, increase, and provide services and programs for youth 12-18 in Abbotsford. One of the ways they do this is through their free drop-in youth centres located at Matsqui Recreation Centre (MRC) and Abbotsford Recreation Centre (ARC). Their centre at ARC is open Monday-Thursday 2:30-5:00pm, Friday’s from 2:30-10:00pm, and Saturdays from 4:00-11:00pm while the centre at MRC is open MondayThursday 2:30-4:30pm and Friday’s from 2:30-10:00pm. The middle and high school years can be a tough time in the lives of many youth who are faced with changes, pressures, and new challenges. One thing is certain though-

Bullying is NOT a “part of growing up” And it is something no child or youth should ever have to encounter. There are four common types of bullying: • Physical - This involves hitting, pushing, any other form of physical violence, or damaging of property • Verbal- This includes name calling, teasing, homophobic or racist remarks • Social+Emotional (also referred to as Relational)- This includes

great place for youth to hang out. I feel comfortable dropping my son off there, knowing he has positive influences to hang out with and look up to. My son only has great things to say about the centre and the employees.” AYC youth centres have video games, ping pong, a concession, craft supplies, and special events. More than anything though, they provide a place for youth to just come hang out, be themselves, and make new friends.

AYC Youth Council Members, 2012 spreading rumours, lying, and social exclusion • Cyber- This includes taunting and humiliation through social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc), over instant messaging, or text messages

It’s estimated that peers are present 85% of the time when bullying occurs So what can you do if you see someone being bullied? Here are a few tips that can help support the person who is being bullied: • Tell the bully to stop- Don’t put yourself in danger- Speak up and stand up for others who are being bullied! Let them know that what they’re saying or doing is not cool. Just be sure you don’t put yourself in danger • Don’t join in- Laughing at the person being bullied or joining in makes you a part of the problem • Tell someone- Tell an adult or help the victim do this. You can offer to be a witness to what happened • Befriend the victim- Ignore the gossip and rumours. If it seems someone is being bullied and singled out, try to include them in your activities and make them feel welcome

Bullying will stop within 10 seconds most of the time when someone else steps in to be a friend to the victim (www.bullying.org). The Abbotsford Youth Commission is planning a series of events leading up to Bullying Awareness Day on February 27th. Here is the schedule for their youth centre located at ARC (2499 McMillan Road):

Feb. 21 Interactive Games Feb. 22 Poster Contest with Prizes! Feb. 25 Presentation from AYC Youth Council Feb. 26 Bullying Discussion in AYC Youth Centre Feb. 27 Bullying Awareness Day Rally When referring to the AYC youth centre, Kayla, 12 says “I love it here, it’s like my home when I don’t want to be home.” Many youth feel like Kayla at times and the Abbotsford Youth Commission is happy to be the safe place that youth 12-18 want to spend time at. It’s not just youth who are excited about the programs and benefits they provide to youth in our community. Charlene, a parent of a youth who attends AYC provided the following testimonial: “The AYC is a

“By creating an environment that not only tolerates diversity but embraces it, we create a place for all youth to belong” Morgan Miller, AYC Rec Lead. In 2012 the two AYC youth centres saw a total of 985 different youth attending the after school dropin programs (Mon-Fri until 5pm) located at MRC and ARC. This was an increase of 32% compared to 2011 and they are looking at ways to increase this number further in 2013. Besides the drop-in youth centres, the AYC offers a variety of other programs, many of which are completely free! They include Drop-in Basketball, Floor Hockey, Open Gym, Youth Focus, Just for Girls, and Guys Alive. Their registered (low-cost) programs consist of: Girls Nite Out, Guys Nite, Red Cross Babysitter Training, Food Safe, Employment Readiness, and Leadership Training.

D

o you feel cheated, ripped off or like you are getting the short end of the stick? The psalmist (Psalm 73) looked around his little universe and saw that the wicked were prospering. They were healthy and without any pain or trials in life. Life was good for them, they never seemed to get into trouble, never had any bad things happen to them. They had the looks, the fast cars, and the big houses. They drank like fish, smoked like chimneys yet never got cancer and never looked out of shape. They spoke behind the boss’s back, booked lots of

See more clearly than ever extra hours for work that wasn’t performed and got a promotion. The psalmist starts thinking about how unfair life is and as a result he starts to get resentful and bitter. He has tried to live a godly life. He hasn’t slept around, cheated on his taxes or had a grow-op in his basement yet he can’t seem to buy a break. His marriage is on the rocks, he gets audited on an annual basis and his electrical bills are going through the roof. To put it bluntly – life sucks. He may be looking at the wicked, but he is holding God to blame. How could He let this hap-

pen, why isn’t He zapping the bad guys blessing him? The whole story starts to collapse in on him and he considers ending it all. That is until he starts to see the wicked and their lifestyle from a different perspective. Up to this point the psalmist is looking at the world from his own self-centred perspective. Grace wasn’t sufficient for him, he wanted more. He believed he deserved more and if God would only get his act together, it would all go his way. Halfway through Psalm 73 the author comes close to the sanctuary of God, symbolic of inti-

Here was a man who felt that God’s grace was not enough. He felt he deserved more than God’s forgiveness, more than his reconciliation. I take courage in the fact that as the psalmist drew near to God, he saw that life only has real meaning when we rest in that place of intimacy. He saw that nearness to God was good and that in God he found his refuge. How is your life going?

macy with the creator. When he is there he begins to see things differently. No longer are the wicked enjoying the good life all day long. Now they are being destroyed in a moment and can’t even stand up without slipping into trouble. What changed? His perspective. No longer was he looking at the world through his own eyes, but through the eyes of God. The psalmist felt cheated and hard done by because he thought he deserved more. He thought this life was supposed to be all filled with fun and games, health and wealth. He also thought it should

ears of laughter will be on the menu Saturday as the Bradner Comedy Night comes to Abbotsford’s Bradner Hall. A fabulous group of comedians including Kelly Dixon, Erica Sigurdson, Graham Clark and Charlie Demers will tickle your funnybone for this one night show and dinner event. Proceeds from the night go towards Bradner’s Halloween Fireworks event in October. MCing the show is comedian Kelly Dixon.

His imaginative storytelling abilities and laid-back personality developed early. His instant rapport with audiences earned him regular work as a stand-up comedian. After a standout performance at the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal, Kelly moved to New York and became a regular at The Comic Strip and Stand up New York. There, with a few other like-minded dogooders, Dixon was a writer and performer with the critically acclaimed and short lived sketch group The Milk Duds, all the while

game of cards or play video games together on a console like PlayStation 3. Video games aren’t just about competing – cooperative games are a great way to learn how to work together, or you can get creative by designing levels together in games such as the LittleBigPlanet.

Here are three tips on how to rediscover the fun now, and for the rest of the year: ■ Learn something new together: It’s easy to get bored when life revolves around routine. Keep things interesting by picking up a new skill. Learn to speak French, learn to play a new sport or take a cooking class together. Sharing in the challenges of learning is a great way to bond and build communication skills.

■ Go out on a date: Schedule time to go out together, without the kids. A date doesn’t have to break the bank, go for a coffee and take time to reminisce about how you met, about your first date, or about your wedding. If it’s not possible to get a sitter, consider meeting for a lunch date during the week.

■ Play together: Take a cue from your kids and lighten the mood with some games. Challenge your partner to a

his Valentine’s Day, courageous women in Zimbabwe will be handing out paper roses in the streets. Jenni Williams, the leader of Women of Zimbabwe Arise (WOZA), has lost count of how many times she has been arrested—“maybe 37 or 38,” she says. Jenni and her colleague, Magodonga Mahlangu, are only two of the many women who have been arrested, illtreated, intimidated and harassed for their peaceful human rights work in this southern African country. Members often give out paper roses during their peaceful marches to symbolize their slogan of love and peace. At a previous Valentine’s Day event in Bulawayo, banners proclaimed “The Power of Love can conquer the Love of Power” and women handed out roses to the public. Three of the 53 women arrested had simply been watching. At trial, the prosecutor decided against legal action, and the activists walked free after paying fines. WOZA was formed in 2003 to defend human rights amidst the political violence in Zimbabwe, and continues their work today by mobilizing to improve living conditions in the country. Members organize vocal, colourful and peaceful demonstrations to protest

Williams was in Canada to speak about human rights in Zimbabwe. government policies that lead to worsening social, economic and human rights situations. Police even arrest children, women carrying babies and pregnant women. Officers release many without charge, but take advantage of repressive legislation such as the Public Order and Security Act and the Miscellaneous Offences Act to charge some of them. The government, in an effort to prevent public protest and criticism of its policies, has become increasingly

intolerant of the work of human rights defenders and is actively seeking to silence them. WOZA members will continue by peaceful means to use their freedom to meet together and criticize government policy. Members of Amnesty International around the world are calling for the protection of WOZA members and all human rights defenders in Zimbabwe.

My Chevy was far beyond clean! If I had “before” and “after” pictures to compare the two conditions of the Chevy, it would be obvious that the professionals in the Detailing Department spent a considerable amount of time and effort. Their workmanship is truly remarkable. ~ M.D.

We had our Tahoe in for service today. Ryan Siemens made sure everything requested was taken care of including calling us with a time that the vehicle was available for pick up.

Raising the roof for the Heat JEAN KONDA-WITTE JKonda-Witte@abbotsfordtimes.com

T

he noise level in the AESC rose to the rafters Tuesday as 6,172 screaming kids cheered on the Abbotsford Heat at the second annual School Day Game. And the young fans, mostly middle school students, did not leave disappointed, as the Heat roasted the Rochester Americans 3-2 in the afternoon match. “They were full of energy and full of excitement,” said Dave Stephen, communications manager with School District 34. “Staff acknowledged it was a much louder and more energy-filled game than it normally would be.” Contributing to that were the bright orange

thundersticks, and every kid had them. They clapped them, beat each other up with them, and raised them high when the Heat scored. Eight middle schools and seven elementary schools (with grades 7 and 8) participated, and the kids loved watching the big screen scoreboard, as video of Heat mascot Hawkey visiting each school came on to a thunderous cheer. “Anytime middle school kids get to go to a big community event they’re excited,” added Stephen. Not to miss out on a day of learning, all students were given a 25-page workbook, with trivia, games, and facts, and some of the answers were posted on the big screen. “It’s a ton of work for the Heat (who weeks before had sent a production crew out with Hawkey to

video him at all the participating schools) and for us (the school district),” said Stephen. “I think it was worth it by the energy I saw today, and the smiles on the faces.” And yes, there was also a hockey game with Brett Carson and Ben Street each recording a goal and an assist. Joe Piskul scored with an assist by Ben Walter in the second period for a 3-1 lead, and the Heat held on for the 3-2 victory and their leagueleading 16th home win of the season. Danny Taylor earned his team-leading 13th win of the season –and on Wednesday signed a one year, two-way contract with the Calgary Flames following an injury to Miikka Kiprusoff. This weekend the Heat host the Lake Erie Monsters (Colorado Avalanche affiliate) in a two-game set Saturday night (7 p.m.) and Sunday at 4 p.m.

he University of the Fraser Valley men’s basketball team defeated the UBC Okanagan Heat 85-80 in overtime Friday night in Kelowna. On Saturday, the Heat returned the favour, beating the Cascades 68-58. “UBC-O played really well tonight and deserved the victory. We have got to put this one behind us and get back at it next weekend,” said UFV head coach Adam Friesen. The Cascades Canada West regular season record stands at 10-8 in the Pacific Division, good for third place. UFV remains one game ahead of the TWU Spartans, at 9-9, for third place in the division. The women’s basketball team withstood a tremendous first half by the UBC Okanagan Heat on Saturday to win their 15th Canada West regular season game of the season, 69-62, in Kelowna. Kayli Sartori led UFV in scoring with a 20 point performance. The night before, the Cascades defeated UBC-O 73-58 for a much-needed weekend sweep late in the season. The Cascades, ranked fourth in the CIS Top 10 poll, improve their Pacific Division leading record to 15-3 and are now tied with the Regina Cougars and Calgary Dinos for the best record overall in Canada West. Both hoops teams entertain the Thompson Rivers University Wolfpack this weekend at the Envision Athletic Centre.

Coming Events

• RETRO DESIGN & •

Kris passed away peacefully to be in the presence of her Lord on Feb. 1, 2013 at the age of 64, her husband by her side. Born to Jack and Edie Beaton in Vancouver, BC she is reunited with her parents and stepfather Jack Entwistle who predecease her. Lovingly remembered by brothers Jim (Mickie) and John (Grace) Beaton, Mom & sisters Schwartz, nieces, nephews, cousins and dear friends from over the years. She leaves behind her husband, Randy, daughter Shelby (Ryan) Mason, son Michael Johnston, stepsons Warren (Erin) and Ryan Schwartz and 2 granddaughters. A long time resident of Abbotsford, BC, Kris was a passionate, kind, and beautiful woman with a great sense of humour – all who knew her will long remember her laugh. A memorial service will be held at Sevenoaks Alliance Church, 2575 Gladwin Rd., Abbotsford, BC on Sat., Feb. 9, 2013 at 1:00pm. Condolences may be sent in care to stjmason@shaw.ca.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Social joys, optimism, entertainment, wish fulfillment and flirtations fill this week. But draw back from all this Sunday afternoon to Tuesday eve. Love holds many future disappointments for couples that form/begin Sunday. Things you do to improve systems, meetings you attend, charitable, spiritual and governmental involvements, all somehow aid your standing with higher-ups Monday/Tuesday. Your energy and charisma soar Tuesday night through Thursday. Start important projects, ask favours. (Start self-employment ventures before 1:30 p.m. PST Wednesday.) Chase money Friday onward. Taurus April 20-May 20: The accent remains on ambition, career, testing situations, reputation, prestige and status relations. Your hopes rise Sunday p.m. to Tuesday, but wait until Monday to form plans, start a relationship, flirt, or begin any project – this day features new beginnings and old successes. Retreat, lie low and rest Tuesday night through Thursday. Contemplate and plan. You might encounter a subtle but deep disagreement, or a significant “order” Wednesday. Your energy and charisma surge upward Friday/Saturday. If someone opposes you, a quiet talk might solve it. You have to admit, to gain. Gemini May 21-June 20: This is your last week of pondering and understanding, of feeling one with society, of travel and intellectual activities, and of gentle love. Not that these things end, but sooon another influence will enter, to bring a whole new set of priorities and goals. You get a hint of that new ambitious influence Sunday afternoon to Tuesday eve – though this is just that, a hint – the ground is not solid enough yet to commit or start a new project, especially Sunday. Tuesday night through Thursday brings social joys, friends, wish fulfillment, flirtations. Retreat, rest Friday/Saturday.

For Sale Miscellaneous

Cancer June 21-July 22: A mystery continues, but you’re close to solving it (and probably will, Monday). If you want to make a significant investment, this is your last chance for a few weeks – but do so AFTER Sunday – a day that holds little good for anybody. Don’t let a sexual attraction flower into an approach or relationship Sunday. Monday/Tuesday bring wisdom, a mellow mood, gentle love, perhaps travel, school or legal developments. Be ambitious Tuesday night through Thursday: you’ll impress higher-ups, but more importantly you can succeed with a financial effort. Joy, popularity come Friday onward. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The accent remains on relationships, co-operation and challenges, opposition and opportunities. Be diplomatic and eager to join others. Be cautious Sunday – the wrong relationships arise. Seize a financial opportunity, or a doorway to intimacy, early Monday morning. Tuesday night through Thursday brings understanding, love, far travel, educational programs, intellectual prowess, international contacts, possibly legal affairs. Chase opportunities in these areas – but sidestep opposition. Your ambitions, career get a boost Friday/Saturday – it might come from past family efforts. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: It’s your last week of “overwork” for a while, Virgo. Soon, fresh, exciting horizons will ascend – new people, too. Sunday to Tuesday gives you a taste – but not a bite – of those future horizons – don’t act, though – wait. The best idea, pre-noon Monday, is to seek old openings, used items, or to connect with an old flame. Mysteries and valuable commitments arise Tuesday night through Thursday. Commitment can be to a lifestyle, a financial action, or to someone, with “intimacy attached.” Love, wisdom, education, far travel or legal matters come Friday/Saturday – all’s good!

February 10 - 16, 2013

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: This is your last strongly romantic week, Libra. A sweet affection will remain until month’s end, but the strength, the surge, will be over. If you’re single/seeking, act now – especially Tuesday night through Thursday, when your “mating prospects” are high. (You might confront the fear – and it’s correct – that mating will change your cosy home world. But is that such a bad thing? It certainly is a great excuse for stagnating.) Earlier, tackle routine chores – carefully Sunday, confidently Monday. Friday/Saturday bring depths, sex, financial commitment – or not. Embrace the new. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: This is your last week of “domestic overload,” Scorpio. Soon, a period of pleasure and creativity will begin. Meanwhile, though Sunday to Tuesday do bring a wee streak of pleasure, romance and creativity, it is unsubstantial – enjoy the feelings, rather than trying to build anything on them. Tackle chores midweek – don’t be distracted by unreliable directions or information midday Wednesday. Exciting meetings, opportunities, fresh horizons confront you Friday/Saturday. One of these seems linked to your employment or a co-worker. Be mildly wary, but don’t reject a good person. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: This is your last week of waiting, talking and feeling restless, Sage. Soon, you’ll face significant trends in domestic and security, property and shelter areas. Sunday to Tuesday give hints of this upcoming phase, but they aren’t the sort of hints you should run with or build on. Just watch and think. DON’T start a new romance or any project Sunday. Speaking of romance, it comes barrelling in Tuesday night through Thursday – if not romance, then you will experience a streak of creativity, pleasure, beauty or “winning.” Tackle chores Friday/Saturday – you’ll succeed.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Continue to deal with money, earnings, buying/selling, and possessions. Your $ luck remains high. If you ask for a pay raise Friday you might get a “no” – but that’s okay. You might meet someone interesting Sunday, but do not begin a friendship or more loving relationship. This link would “crush love.” If you want to get those errands done, start early Monday morn. Tuesday eve through Thursday bring domestic duties, security, home comforts. This is a splendid time to deal with leases, premises, business foundations – and family. Your romantic instincts awaken Friday/Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your effectiveness, charisma, energy and clout remain high. Your most charming self radiates, attracts admirers or lovers. Start significant projects, especially in money areas (early morning Monday) travel and communications (Wednesday eve to Thursday eve) and home or domestic zones (Friday/Saturday). One warning: make sure these projects can be completed, or can take one solid step forward, before the middle of next week. (A slow-down’s coming.) Your money affairs run swiftly – too swiftly, if you’re spending! Love, romance and children’s affairs go luckily forward, to June. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Although your energy and attractiveness rise Sunday to Tuesday, you still have a week of resting, thinking and planning before you move into solid forward gear. Soon, the world will be yours to play with – but not yet. Avoid any love-based commitment Sunday. A hidden flaw would wreck its future. Chase money Tuesday eve through Thursday. Buy items, especially high tech or tools, after 2 p.m. Wednesday, not before. A short trip, errand, visit, call or email leads to successful and happy “contact forming” Friday/Saturday. Property/ family issues, held back lately, will resolve soon. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
