Volunteers with Mission Search and Rescue noticed the morning of June 12 that several portable radios and a charging station – all worth an estimated $14,000 – were missing from their location at 7229 Mershon St.
According to the Mission RCMP, it appears as if someone entered the compound by cutting a metal fence and then broke into the building through a window. So far, investigators have received just one lead, and are asking anyone with any information about this incident to come forward. “We’re looking for anything we can get from the public,” said Cpl.

Sisters Mary Dyck, 20, centre, and Shayna, 18, were innocent bystanders during the Vancouver riot last Wednesday, while mom Pam, left, tried desperately to reach her daughters on their cell phones. “Oh my God!

bbotsford mother Pam Dyck’s heart sank as she watched the alcohol and drug-fuelled riots wave through Vancouver’s city core following the Canucks Game 7 loss in the Stanley Cup final Wednesday night. Her daughters Mary and Shayna and a group of teenage friends had gone downtown with 100,000 other people to watch the game at the celebration site, and were caught up in the frenzied pack. “I was one of any number of parents in Abbotsford,” said Pam. “When we saw the riot on the news, we thought, ‘Oh my God! Our kids are in the middle of that.” Frantic calls to her girls’ cell phones produced no immediate results. Pam was thrilled when a short time later she got a call from Mary to tell her everybody was OK. Her relief was short-lived. With the sound of shouts and crashing in the background, moments later Mary hung up the phone saying, “Oh my God! We’ve got to go.” Pam’s daughters were experiencing

But before being swept away, she could see he was bloodied. Trapped in the downtown core, the group tried to circumvent roving bands of rioters or police advances with the accompanying clouds of pepper spray. During the journey, they saw people slash each other with shards of glass, mass fights, cars set on fire, vandalism and looting. Mary’s brother called, telling her it was imperative she abandon the downtown core and escape to the fringes of the city. Finally, the group exited the city, making it out from the Waterfront SkyTrain station. Pam is overjoyed her girls got home safe but shaken at what transpired. She’s sickened by the mob’s actions, but she’s more focused on the lone young man who tried to help out her daughter, and the other individuals who took great risks to try and stem the violence. “Whoever he is . . . he’s a real hero to me.

he Harmonized Sales Tax will continue to hurt small businesses, according to a group of politicians and local business owners who held a small press conference in Abbotsford last week. Armin Basra, who operates AGS Landscape, said his business has struggled since beginning in March, and he’s convinced most of that has to do with the HST. “Residential lawns, there is money in there to maintain them, but people just don’t want to do that,” he said. “Everybody is spending more money everywhere. . . that’s taking away from the disposable income they want to spend on us.” A referendum is currently underway in British Columbia on whether abolish the HST altogether, or to legislate the new proposal that would see the current 12 per cent rate reduced down to 10 per cent over a two-year span. The HST became official on July 1, 2010, and has fallen under criticism as not only a tax that hurts small businesses and families, but one that was implemented unfairly.

Liberal party, which he said used $5 million in public money to fund a “persuasion campaign.” “It’s just straight out government advertising for the Liberal party and they’re using that to try and persuade people,” he said. “Beginning before the last election, the Liberals said in writing that they would not introduce the tax, and the very next day after the election, then-premier Gordon Campbell was discussing with the Deputy Minister of Finance about brining in the tax.”

Flood concerns not pouring in
CAM TUCKER firstname.lastname@example.org
raser River water levels will not reach as high as they did in 2007, thus downplaying the risk of flood in Abbotsford, according to Deputy Chief Ron Hull of the Abbotsford Fire Rescue Service. “With the current weather forecast there is no sign of us reaching the 2007 levels,” Hull wrote to the AbbotsfordMission Times in a recent e-mail. “We will continue to monitor the levels and our river systems.” Despite high snow pack levels across the province, a colder than average spring
has delayed the melting process by as many as three or four weeks. Because of that, the threat of water levels in the Fraser Valley rising to the point where a flood advisory or warning would be issued is very low. Hull said he was advised on June 8 that water levels in the Abbotsford-Mission area were expected to rise slightly in the coming days but subside just as quickly. “This rise was the result of the warmer weather,” he wrote. Hull, and a number of other fire chiefs from across the province, in accordance with the Emergency Management B.C., have participated in an
assortment of teleconference phone calls with weather experts and river forecasters to monitor any flood risk. Water levels in Mission rose to 5.47 metres on June 16, according to the B.C. River Forecast Centre. If the Fraser River hits six metres, an advisory or a warning can be issued. In 2007, water levels in Mission hit the six-metre mark, and actually topped off at 6.3 metres in 1999. The largest recorded water level in Mission was 8.9 metres in 1894. That amount accumulates to about 18,900 cubic metres of water per second. ◗ For more on flood risk, visit http://bcrfc.env.gov.bc.ca/.

replacement of the four existing radial spillway gates and the existing radial gate hoists. To operate the gates, BC Hydro installed a new crane in 2010. This crane is required to lift and lower the gates and is moved into position on a rail that is embedded in the roadway. BC Hydro will be replacing these rails starting mid-June, 2011. A one lane closure of Dewdney Trunk Road for six to eight weeks is required to complete this work. Priority access will be given to emergency vehicles and the school bus. Periodic road closures of Dewdney Trunk Road will continue to be required over the next two years to facilitate the replacement of the spillway gates. In general, these will be short-term (10–15 minutes) or single lane closures. To install the new gates, a full road closure of approximately three days will be required four times during the two-year project. Loop Trail will be closed over Blind Slough Dam during construction. BC Hydro will re-open road and pedestrian access over the dam when construction schedules allow (e.g. primarily evenings and weekends).

The beach can be used with caution, but the water will not be accessible. The Hayward boat launch and dog beach will be closed. The picnic grounds will remain open and available for public use. Trails will remain open; however hikers will be unable to complete the Railway/Reservoir Trail loop due to the closure of both Ruskin Dam and the Floating Bridge at Hairsine Creek.

Female sex offender warning
ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com
bbotsford Police are warning the public about a female sex offender with a history of victimizing young children who has come to live in the community. Const. Ian MacDonald said Audrey Elizabeth Jean Black, 34, has moved to Abbotsford after her release from a onemonth jail term for breaching her conditions while living in Chilliwack. Chilliwack RCMP issued a warning to its community on May 6 about Black when she elected to reside there after serving her four-year sentence for her conviction in sex crimes involving young children in Saskatchewan in 2007. Black, who is a registered sex offender, was convicted along with her husband Donald Black, who received eight years behind bars. She was originally charged
ELIZABETH BLACK with two counts of sexual interference involving a child, one count of sexual touching of a child, one count of child pornography and one count of bestiality. The RCMP said Black’s mode of operation involved offering baby-sitting services to people and communicating with children online. The victims involved in the case that led to her conviction were a preschooler and toddler. Police are taking her presence in the community seri-

ously, said MacDonald. “ It ’s u n u s u a l t o h a v e female [sex offenders], but essentially we’re dealing with an adult that had children as victims in crimes that involved sex offences.” Black is subject to a number of conditions. She is forbidden contact, activities or employment that involves children younger than 16 years old. Black also cannot attend parks, playgrounds or any other location youth under 16 might frequent. She is also not allowed any electronic device that connects to the Internet.

Cities agree to water MOU T

water sources as well as Abbotsford’s needs which would come from both the existing and the new Stave Lake source.” Mission Mayor James Atebe agreed in the importance of a spirit of cooperation between the two communities, saying, “So that we both have secure long term water supply sources.” Abbotsford and Mission staff will work together to draft a MOU that will outline the principles for amending the existing Abbotsford/ Mission water agreements to reflect the ongoing cooperation between the two cities and to reallocate existing water supplies.

Surreal through rioting streets “I
love the smell of napalm in the morning . . . smells like . . . victory.” Those were the famous words from Lieutenant Colonel Bill Kilgore, played by actor Robert Duval, right after a U.S. air strike in Vietnam from the 1979 hit movie Apocalypse Now. It’s hard to equate the countless bombings from a war that happened five decades ago to the post-Stanley Cup Game 7 Vancouver riot that took place last night. But the walk from Rogers Arena, where the Canucks lost their bid for a first-ever Stanley Cup, to the Sutton Place Hotel, where the NHL was putting up out-oftown sports reporters and public relations staff, was enough evidence to me that Vancouver had in fact become a war zone on Wednesday, thanks to a small group of low-life anarchists. Those people – and I use the term ‘people’ incredibly loosely – had one sole purpose – and that was to watch the city burn. I was stationed in the press box at Rogers Arena covering the Final for the Boston Globe and watching in shock and utter sadness at the filth that began tearing Vancouver apart. In the age of social media, the images and first-person accounts were staggering. There were fights, burned cars, people lying unconscious on the street either from too much alcohol or from being beaten mercilessly. As I went to leave Rogers Arena
Inside Sports at around 9:30 p.m., no longer wanting to stay downtown for a bite to eat and a brief relaxation period, a member of the Vancouver Police Department said: “You can leave, but sir I’d advise [you] it’s not worth the risk.” Those might be the most disturbing words a fellow Canadian has ever said to me. Finally, around 11 p.m., after most of the rioters had either been thrown in jail – and we hope police throw away the key – or gone home, a small group of young journalists, including myself, made the trek from the arena to the hotel. Call it morbid curiosity, but as frightening as it was to see Vancouver’s beautiful streets destroyed in the mayhem, I had to see it. What was normally a 15, maybe 20-minute walk turned into an hour of orchestrated navigation so as not to get caught up in what was transpiring. And remember that quote about napalm? Vancouver’s streets reeked of tear gas. And no, it didn’t smell like victory. It was quite sickening, actually. There was lingering smoke in
the air. My eyes welled up, not from sorrow or anger, but from chemical after-effects of a riot. Newspaper boxes overturned, windows smashed, paper everywhere on the ground, beer bottles, looting and people getting arrested, or confronting police officers. There were, unfortunately, families in the downtown area who wanted to soak in the atmosphere of one of sport’s greatest spectacles. Imagine being five or six years old and asking your mom or dad, “Why is that man setting fire to that car?”. How do you explain that to your child? There were innocent victims in an estimated crowd of 100,000 Canuck fans, obviously disappointed with the result. Disappointment is one thing. Losing the Cup is hard to accept when your team makes it as far as the Canucks did. Hockey is an emotional game, and Canucks’ fans, and indeed those of any Canadian hockey franchise, are passionate. But the small percentage of people who turned Vancouver into the hell-bound circus it was Wednesday have tarnished this area’s reputation. And, unfortunately, it will take more than a few hundred volunteer sweepers the next morning to fix it. ■ Cam Tucker is a freelance columnist for the Abbotsford-Mission Times.

t’s an old story, one that recurs despite society’s best efforts, and one that wrenches at the heart every time. It’s a story that every parent dreads, from the moment they started weighing the pros and cons of starting a family. That decision to bring children into the world always comes with a mass of questions based on the hopes and the dreams – and the fears – shared by everyone who takes that responsible journey into parenthood. Will my son be born with two left feet? Or will he grow up to be a hockey star? Will my daughter have difficulty making friends in school? Or will she go on to university and become a world-renowned scientist? Will my little boy fall in with the wrong crowd? Or will he grow up to be a productive member of society? Will my little girl disappear without a trace in the middle of the night? That last question probably doesn’t pop up often as newlyweds discuss the prospects of their future families. But it happens. And when it does happen to a family – a good family – a family right next door in Langley – there is no way for the rest of us to truly understand the depth of feeling that is being experienced by those directly affected. But it is a time when the community finds a depth of compassion within itself that is almost unmatchable by any other event. The entire community – a community of humanity that stretches far beyond the usual “community” boundaries – hopes that it all will turn out well, that there has just been an unfortunate mistake that can be corrected with a joyous homecoming. Such a joyous ending to the kind of story that is rending so many hearts has happened before. And all those hearts are focused on such a joyous ending last week.

I am not a true Canucks fan – I have been a Habs fan since the Original Six, but I always cheer a Canadian team over an American team. But I must say that the true Canucks fans have shown the NHL how to properly take a run at a Cup. The white towel of Roger Neilson is copied worldwide now and began here. The amazing singing of O Canada is emulated in many stadiums and started here by Canucks fans. Six weeks of incredible street parties – no sporting event anywhere can claim what Vancouver accomplished with the fan support these last few weeks. Great class was shown by the fans at the stadium as they cheered their team even after the game was over, showing them respect for a great season, even if it didn’t end as hoped. More class was shown as the Canucks fans gave polite applause to Boston, and real ovations for Thomas out of respect for his efforts and for Lucic as a home-town boy, even if he does wear the gold and brown. And Canucks fans stayed and applauded the Bruins as they accepted the Cup, instead of just leaving in disappointment. The coach and players gave classy interviews after a heart-breaking loss. This was a class act right down the line – even the Facebook group getting hundreds organized to go downtown and assist with the cleanup. Unfortunately, thugs ruled yet again. Vancouver is not the no-fun city, but the nobrain city, and these were not Canucks fans. No matter what the police do, they will be scrutinized, while hundreds of thugs walk free. Our court system will ensure that this occurs again as hired suits convince out of touch judges that their clients are not bad people but just got caught up in the heat of things.

on property taxation. How long can this carry on until there is an outright tax revolt?. Recently the city passed a commercial revitalization tax exemption bylaw. No doubt the intentions were to increase development and broaden the tax base. The bylaw provides for a phase in of taxes over five years. This hardly seems fair to those owners who have consistently paid their taxes year after year. Especially when taken in practical terms the new developments compete with existing property owners. It appears the city does not have an income problem as much as a spending situation. John Klassen Abbotsford
take the appropriate action to screen any prospective tenant before entering any rental agreement. I have little sympathy for property owners who willingly rent or lease property without taking the reasonable action of conducting a background check. That does not mean simply calling the person the prospective tenant claims to have been his previous landlord as in most cases the previous landlord would be more than pleased to get rid of a problem tenant and would say nothing against his former tenant. There are excellent firms that do proper background checks at a reasonable cost and property owners who refuse to take that step have no sympathy from me. Further, if our mayor was doing his job and was genuinely interested in this city he would take a similar stand rather than expressing his sympathy. Frank Wirrell Abbotsford

of the world? Or the poor guy who was trying to stop rioters from attacking the Bay and he got pulled into the crowd and beaten. Who are these sick thugs? Why will the courts not hold them completely accountable? Where is the public will to put an end to this kind of sick behaviour? These hooligans have embarrassed Vancouver in front of our entire country, and also internationally. This news is world-wide and it does not make us look good. True Canucks fans take heart – you showed a lot of class right down the line and hopefully taught the NHL a thing or two while you were at it. Now we need you to take that movement and pressure our officials to take serious action for a change and prosecute each and every one of these creeps to the fullest extent of the law, even if it takes another 17 years.

Income problem or spending situation? Editor, the Times:
At the beginning of each year city council seemingly wrestles with property tax increases, which invariably results in a variety of responses and letters to the editor of local newspapers. The facts are in 2011 residential property taxes, before the portion related to utilities, are $4.77 per $1,000 of assessed property value. This compares with $13.13 per $1,000 of assessed value for commercial property. Commercial property is taxed at 2.75 times the amount of residential property. It is very apparent that commercial property owners are relentlessly squeezed
I have read the report concerning the targeting of illegal grow-ops and find the statements of Mr. Kahlon a bit hollow (Times, June 16). As a landlord he must accept responsibility for carefully screening prospective tenants and had he done so he would not be facing the legitimate costs relating to the activities of his tenants. It is not the responsibility or duty of the city or the police department to screen tenants – that is solely the duty of the property owner or manager. Failure to do so results in the property owner facing these costs and there is no reason for these costs to be passed on to the general public. Further, if property owners were genuinely interested in the safety of the public and the protection of their families, children and other relatives, they would

I’m terribly curious, now. How will these FHA researchers divide up these “100 Mennonites of both genders” among the various racial groups in our community (Times, June 14)? Will there be equal numbers from among the Hispanic Mennonites as from the Vietnamese Mennonites? Will the South Asian Mennonites here be treated on a par with those Mennonites of Russian, German, Dutch and Swiss heritage? Will this eventually lead to a similar study among Baptists, Reformed churches and those of Lutheran persuasion? And will the atheists and the agnostics not clamour for equal time? Also, are there perhaps other overloads other than iron that could be checked out while we’re at it? L. Friesen Abbotsford

How to be sure bottoms-up doesn’t lead to a bigger bottom
DAVIDICUS WONG, M.D. For the Times
JENNIFER SYGO Postmedia News
re you getting enough rest? This is a question I’ve been asking more often because rest is so important to good health. It’s as vital to your longevity,
ll right, party people, it’s time for a shootthe-messenger moment: It’s “that time of year” again - you know, the barbecue, the bathing suits, and, of course, the beer (or gin, or wine spritzer, you pick your poison), and it’s time to make everyone feel guilty about their alcohol consumption. At eight months pregnant, this is easy for me; my teetotaller lifestyle, after all, is nutritionally pristine. So, while you reach for a mug of lager, let’s take a closer look at the pleasure – and pain – of alcohol consumption.
Why rest is more than sleep
Those of you with a history of calorie-counting can probably recite the numbers by rote. But in the interest of full disclosure, here’s the data: A typical drink will run you about 100 to 150 calories, give or take. What’s a drink? A standard serving is a 12-ounce (355 mL) bottle of regular beer, a 5-ounce (140-mL) glass of wine, or 1.5 ounce (45 mL) of hard liquor. Of the three, the liquor is the cheapest, calorie-wise, at about 90 calories per serving, while the wine ranges from about 120-140 calories, and the beer roughly 150 calories, with intra-category variations usually driven by differing alcohol content. At seven calories per gram, alcohol is the secondmost dense source of calories in our diet, just behind fats (nine calories per gram) and nearly double the calories in protein and carbohydrates (four calories per gram, each). Translation: When it comes to booze, a little goes a long way. Other factors to keep in mind are the sugar content (coolers often have more), the mix (the tonic with the gin is not free, despite what you might

At seven calories per gram, alcohol is the second most dense source of calories in our diet, just behind fats. tell yourself at 3 a.m.), the portion (a pint of beer is about 225 calories) and the carb content, at least when it comes to beers (hence a beer such as Molson 67, with 67 calories, is lower in both alcohol and carbohydrates than other beers). For context, a typical can of regular (not diet) pop will run you about 150 calories, and we store about 3,500 calories in a pound of body fat. That means that two drinks per day will theoretically translate to a pound of fat every 10 days or so.
Does drinking alcohol lead to weight gain?
So we know that booze is calorie-rich. Fine. But do we have good evidence drinkers actually see an impact on their waistlines? According to a study published this month in the European Journal of Clinical Nutrition, the answer seems to be yes. As part of the European Prospective into Cancer and Nutrition study, researchers assessed alcohol consumption in some 100,000 men and 150,000 women. When comparing booze intake with body mass index, waist circumference and waist-to-hip ratio, the authors found that higher lifetime alcohol intake was associated with both increased BMI and waist cir-
cumference in men, while the relationship only held true for waist circumference for the ladies. So, while women may not gain as much weight as men from drinking, they gain in the place most concerning for health: the midsection.

What are fun-loving guys and gals to do?
Ultimately, it’s up to you to decide what to do with your life, and that includes alcohol intake. To keep a reasonable lid on things, try abstaining during the week, or having a glass of water between drinks. Another option is to keep doing what you are doing, but make lower-calorie choices, for example by cutting your white wine with sparkling water, avoiding sugary mixes (soda water is calorie-free), or switching to light beer. If none of these ideas appeals, then try to at least limit the amount of alcohol you consume on an empty stomach. No food means you will feel the effects faster, which tends to trigger overeating. Also, try to keep the most tempting snack foods (salted peanuts, wings, fries and the like) out of reach while you imbibe. ■ Jennifer Sygo is a dietitian at

Healthwise SLEEP, from page A10 don’t realize that they too require at least seven to eight hours of sleep each night. Teens typically go to sleep later than their parents, and it’s not just because of homework. The call of the cell, Skype, Facebook and other forms of social media never allows them to completely disconnect and get the extra sleep their growing brains and bodies need. This leads to increasing sleep debt, and the cost could be suboptimal emotional, physical and mental performance. You can tell if you’ve accumulated a sleep debt by how late you sleep in on weekends when you have nothing else to do, but if your schedule is packed 24/7, you may never have the opportunity to find out . . . until you get sick. In our 20s, our social and work lives can be so jam-packed – there are so many interesting people to meet and so many interesting things to do – that we neglect to schedule adequate time for sleep. Later, raising children, acting as caregivers to aging family members and working long work hours can conspire to keep us out of bed. In later life, when we finally have enough time to sleep, nature this time conspires: sleep becomes lighter and less restor-

ative with age. I think rest homes are misnomers; many patients in long-term care facilities have difficulty sleeping, and sedatives are among the most commonly prescribed medications for the elderly. Ironically, sedatives pose greater health risks with increasing age. They slow down reaction time and cognitive function in general, and they increase the risk of falling. At any age, sleeping pills can increase our risk for accidents. Your ability to drive the morning after taking a sleeping pill could be impaired. Like being drunk, we underestimate the impairment and overestimate our abilities. Many people self-medicate with a nightcap, but alcohol is definitely not what the doctor ordered. A drink is like a dirty mixture of drugs. It first sedates the brain, making us feel relaxed and sleepy, but the late effect of that same drink excites our nervous system, making us feel anxious, wired or wide awake, thinking we’re due for another shot.

Ending on a high note
Abbotsford’s Adam Hadwin caps off U.S. Open with a three-under par final round
CAM TUCKER firstname.lastname@example.org
Abbotsford’s Adam Hadwin scored a birdie on the final hole of his second round to make the cut at the 2011 U.S. Open. He went on to shoot a three-under 68 on Sunday.
At one point in Friday’s second round, it looked as if Hadwin would be packing his bags for Canada early. Needing to reach fourover par through 36 holes in order to make the cut and ensure a spot in the final two rounds of the weekend, Hadwin ballooned all the way to eight-over par by the time he finished his sixth hole in Friday’s second round. He birdied four of his last 11 holes in the second round, including the par-five ninth hole, which he had to play early Saturday morning after officials suspended play on Friday due to darkness. But it was back to reality for Hadwin on Monday. No sooner had the autograph seekers and media dissipated, Hadwin was on a plane bound for Edmonton, and eventually Fort McMurray, Alta, for the Canadian Tour’s Syncrude Boreal Open, beginning June 23. He’s trying to shake any perception – be it internal or external – that he may be headed for an emotional letdown having just experienced the U.S. Open up close. “This past week was, I don’t want to say a dream week because I hope to be there all the time, but it was just a bonus week,” he said. “It’s back to all the guys on the Canadian Tour who I hang out with, travel with, eat dinner with, and back to the daily grind. “It may not have courtesy cars and free food all the time but that’s what I know. Now I get to go back and hang out with the guys and in the end, it’s still the same thing, I’ve got to put the ball in the hole.”
The fans jumped out of their seats and it was really cool.” It was a fitting end for Hadwin, who had his share of ups and downs all weekend, beginning with an opening round in which he fired a four-over par 75.
◗ For the past week, Hadwin has provided AbbotsfordMission Times’ readers an insider’s view from the U.S. Open with a daily blog. You can check out his last entry right now at www.abbotsfordtimes.com.
t the beginning of last week, Adam Hadwin said, in no uncertain terms, he wanted to show the golfing world what he was made of. The 23-year-old Abbotsford golfer made his debut at the U.S. Open on Thursday, as one of just three Canadians in the field, and finished Sunday tied for 39th at three-over par for the tournament. Ultimately, 22-year-old Rory McIlroy from Northern Ireland won the 111th running of the U.S. Open – held at Congressional Country Club in Bethesda, Md. – in record-setting fashion, but
“You can’t put it into words how cool it was being on the grounds and playing alongside some of the best players in the world.” – Adam Hadwin
Hadwin was able to make his presence felt in Sunday’s final round. Hadwin, who was the low Canuck at last year’s Canadian Open, fired a three-under par 68 in his final round at Congressional. He put the exclamation point on his weekend with a resounding 40-foot birdie putt on the 18th hole. “It’s such a tough hole,” he said. “I was very happy to hit the green in two [shots] and give myself a shot at birdie. “I said . . . ‘Basically lets not three-putt in front of this crowd to end the day. I hit the putt and I knew as soon as it came off it had great speed. It got up over the hill, started breaking and I raised my putter and it went in dead centre.
– USGA/HUNTER MARTIN/FOR THE TIMES
“It’s pretty much indescribable,” said Hadwin. “I d o n’t k n ow h ow t o explain it, to be honest. You can’t put it into words how cool it was being on the grounds and playing alongside some of the best players

Mariners triumph over Sea Wolves Goal in 90th minute gives Abby 2-1 win CAM TUCKER email@example.com
mpeccable timing helped give Abbotsford’s Magnuson Ford Mariners Premier Development League team a much needed victory on Saturday. Cody Strelau scored in the 90th minute of Saturday’s game to propel the Mariners to a 2-1 win over the North Sound SeaWolves at Goddard Memorial Stadium in Everett, Wash, just four minutes after the SeaWolves tied the game at one-apiece. The winning goal came off a scramble in front of the SeaWolves’ net. The ball came to Strelau, who booted it to the back of the goal to give the Mariners their second win of the 2011 PDL season. “They managed to get the ball to the proper areas of the field, we forced a scramble and the ball fell favourably for Cody,” said head coach Ian Knight. The Mariners staked themselves to the lead in the second minute of the game on a goal from Danfi Parker and dominated the first half. But the second half was a different story, as Todd Wallenius got the SeaWolves on even terms in the 86th minute, necessitating Strelau’s last-minute heroics. “The feeling was fairly positive in the dressing room at half time,” said Knight. “We seemed to go into panic mode and made the second half a bit of a battle there.” The Mariners next game is June 25 in Victoria.

A14 TUESDAY, JUNE 21, 2011 THE TIMES
he Mission Roadrunners high school football program might get overlooked at times, but it seems bent on changing that. Already a strong program that claimed the Junior Varsity Double-A title and a loss in the Varsity Double-A semifinal last year, the Road-
runners seem more like a pack of hungry dogs with a steak dangling tantalizingly above their heads. The Roadrunners, both the JV and Varsity teams, recently concluded their spring football camp with wins in scrimmages against the Windsor Secondary Dukes, by scores of 16-12
and 76-20, respectively. With two months left until high school football teams hit the gridiron for training camp, the Roadrunners boast a quarterbacking duo that is as young as it is talented. Quarterback Kevin Weins will enter next season as the Grade 11 starter, while standout Evan Horton will back him up as a Grade 10. Both were nearly perfect in the scrimmages against the Dukes.
Weins completed 14 of 16 passes for 206 yards and three touchdowns, while Horton also completed a pass for a major. Head coach Kevin Watrin knows it will be no easy task for Weins – and his protégé Horton – to replace graduate and last year’s Most Valuable Player in Double-A Tanner Pearce, but he can’t wait to see what the future holds. “I’m really excited, we’ve got a
good group of players coming up through our program,” Watrin said. “Our quarterbacks can pass and they’re athletic . . . I can’t wait to get the season going.” The Roadrunners begin their ninth season on Friday, Sept. 2, when they travel south to Washington for a date with the North Kitsap Vikings.

Does your child forget everything he or she learned in school once break arrives? Did you know: Most students lose about two months of grade-level equivalency in mathematical computation skills over summer months. Therefore, even the best students forget lessons they have learned during the school year. While a break from school is great for recharging your children’s batteries, if students aren’t using the skills they acquired in the classroom, they could ﬁnd themselves lagging behind once the school bell rings again. Sylvan offers recommendations to inspire academic discovery when away from the classroom.
• Writing - To help writing skills, encourage your child to start a diary, write letters to a grandparent or even email a friend. If you are traveling on a vacation, ask your child to keep a travel journal recording where you stayed and what you did. • Mathematics - Helping mom with grocery shopping develops opportunities to use math skills, such as making change, weighing fruits and vegetables, etc. Providing assistance with cooking can also familiarize children with weights and measures, organization and planning and following a recipe. • Reading - You can’t start too early. You can’t read too much. Reading to young children nurtures an interest in language, words and communication. Children also learn by example. If parents are setting time aside to read, it reinforces the fun and enjoyment of reading. • Research - There are many websites that provide summer reading lists for children. At www.BookAdventure.com, children (K-8) create personalized book lists from more than 7,500 recommended titles. • Analysis and Logic - Many family games and puzzles are not only fun, they also can help children develop and reinforce skills. A simple card game can involve mathematics, analysis and logical thinking. Be sure to select games appropriate for your child’s age level. • Summer Enrichment Programs - There are many enrichment activities available for children when school is out. It’s important to ﬁnd programs that keep the interest and fun in learning alive through the summer and into the school year. Kathleen Casprowitz is the owner of several Sylvan Learning locations in B.C. Check out www.sylvanbc.ca for more information.
