Return of the Reptile Guy

New hands-on centre opens in Abbotsford



he 2012 Abbotsford Agrifair was a very successful event despite losing money, president Ernie Silveri said at the fair’s AGM. The event lost about $7,000 in 2012, an improvement over the 2011 fair, which generated a loss of just over $20,000. Agrifair general manager Pamela Brenner blamed the small loss on a drop in attendance caused by the heat wave during the fair. “Weather will always be a factor in how well a fair

Agrifair ‘successful’ despite loss

Weather a big part of $7,000

ROCHELLE BAKER bbotsford children, possibly to their parents’ dismay, once again have the opportunity to see, touch and learn about all sorts of tarantulas, giant lizards and snakes. Abbotsford’s Reptile Guy, Mike Hopcraft, hosted the grand opening of his new education centre on Saturday after being forced to shut down his long-time animal rescue operation last February due to a cash crunch and changes to provincial exotic animal laws. Hopcraft’s new location meets all the new regulations, so he can continue displaying his cold-blooded menagerie to the public, host education seminars and care for abandoned or surrendered reptiles. “We’re good to go,” said Hopcraft, adding his new rescue and education facility features a nocturnal room, walk-in tortoise pen, 1,400-gallon turtle pond and much more. The nocturnal room, lit by red light, is filled with frogs, lizards, geckos and tarantulas, which are more active and easier to see in the simulated night environment. Especially cool are the scorpions, which when exposed to black light, glow bright yellow in the dark. Then there is the loving and gentle Dozer, Hopcraft’s 35-pound tortoise, who gets around his pen with surprising speed and has a perpetually green moustache from his diet of greens. Dozer’s roommate Brute, a four and half foot long monitor lizard, is slower moving and rather docile. Another colourful character at the centre is Slash, a handsome, large green iguana who is actually a fiery orange. In addition to displaying his reptiles, Hopcraft has also set up a small supply store that will sell specialized equipment, feeder insects and live and frozen rodents. “I know . . . I’m in a weird business,” he said. Funds from the new centre and store will allow Hopcraft to continue the rescue and care of unwanted reptiles. It also allows him a great vehicle to educate people about the scaly beasts in an interactive way, and teach visitors which reptiles may or may not make great pets. “It’s a l w a y s b e e n a h a n d s - o n approach,” said Hopcraft. “I like to let people touch them.

does,” she noted at the Oct. 30 meeting. The loss in gate revenues w a s o f f s e t i n p a r t by a $13,000 increase in sponsorships. “I fully expect the 2013 Agrifair to be in the black,” Silveri said. “We are receiving incredibly strong support from the City of Abbotsford, and the increase in sponsorships shows the local business community is also rallying behind the fair. “Our goal is to move Agrifair from being the ‘best little country fair’ to a ‘big country fair’,” Silveri added. To ensure the fair meets that lofty goal, Silveri invites the community to submit ideas to the board, so they can be incorporated in the planning. “We want everyone’s input because everyone is important to us. This is not our fair, it’s Abbotsford’s fair.” ■ Next year’s fair is Aug. 15 at Exhibition Park. Go to for more information.










She’s spreading the joy . . . one stitch at a time

On a mission, making 300 stockings in her kitchen

XMAS EVENTS PG A17 One day this past year while leafing through a magazine and wanting to do something special to spread her joy to others, Freda had an idea. She saw some handmade Christmas stockings in the magazine and thought, “I can do better than that.” And so she did. She star ted sewing 50 colourful stockings at her small kitchen table, and decided she wanted to give them to sick kids at Children’s Hospital and Canuck Place. So she sent a stocking off to

Mayor says relatively small number of fans will make the difference HEAT, from page A1 Coun. John Smith. Smith and Coun. Henry Braun repeated a request to have more detailed reports and to have Heat staff present at the city audit and finance committee in an effort to find some solution to the problem. Smith said he was bewildered by the continued lack of attendance at games despite the NHL lockout, the top calibre hockey, and the Heat leading their division. “We can’t do better than that,” he said. “We have to deal with this issue. It’s killing us.” Mayor Bruce Banman said the city along with the Heat and Global Spectrum, which manages the Abbotsford Sports and Entertainment Centre, have to guarantee people a premier “guest experience.”

“. . . moaning and groaning and crying about it won’t make it better. – Mayor Bruce Banman

Banman stressed the importance of monitoring and improving such things as parking, food and beverage choices (AESC improved its menu options Friday) and cutting lines at concessions and ticket windows. He also said it was time to stop focusing on negatives and focus on what is going well. Critics need to accept the arena and Heat supply fees are done deals and join efforts to solve the problem. “There are solutions but moaning and groaning and crying about it won’t make it better,” said Banman. A relatively small number of new fans were needed to secure the franchise success, he added. “We’re 1,500 people on average away from breaking even,” he said. Av e r a g e a t t e n d a n c e 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. Average attendance for the six Heat games (ahead of last weekend’s sold-out tilts) is 4,463, according to the AHL website, but that figure includes two sold-out games with the Canucks farm team. The city will use about $900,000 in gaming revenue to cover half of the shortfall.


YWCA steps up for single moms

New program offers unconditional support ROCHELLE BAKER


ven when Sarah Neault was pregnant, she knew she was going to need extra support being a single mom. The Aldergrove resident feels fortunate to have discovered the YWCA’s single mothers’ support services even though it meant making a trip all the way into Vancouver to take part in a program. But now single moms living in Abbotsford and Aldergrove will be able to access a YWCA single moms support group locally through Abbotsford Community Services or Aldergrove Neighbourhood Services. “It’s fantastic,” Neault said of the program she refers to as her “lifeline.” Neault, whose son Solomon is six months old, said the YWCA program contributes to her wellbeing and that of her son. “Right from the beginning it helped to be in a room full of women with babies of various ages,” said Neault. “They were able to answer questions about things I was anxious about, and help me through the pregnancy and when Solomon was born.” Neault is thrilled to hear of the program’s expansion into Abbotsford and Aldergrove. It means more single mothers can access the support they need locally to get the confidence, knowledge and tools to seek employment, go back to school, find safe affordable housing and child care or access other community services. The goal of the YWCA single moms support program is to help women parenting alone achieve personal and economic independence. The program is also expanding into Surrey, Port Coquitlam and Maple Ridge due to $450,000 in new funding, thanks to the commitment of three female credit union CEOs, said Janet Austin, YWCA Metro Vancouver CEO. Coast Capital’s Tracy Redies, Vancity’s Tamara


For Sarah Neault and son Solomon, YWCA’s single mothers support services was a lifeline. YWCA will now offer the program through Abbotsford Community Services and Aldergrove Neighbourhood Services. Vrooman and First West’s Launi Skinner pooled resources to provide more services for single mothers in Metro Vancouver and the Fraser Valley, said Austin. Each credit union is contributing $50,000 annually for a three-year period. Moms participating in the extended program will meet weekly with a trained facilitator while their children are cared for at their community organizations. Research prior to the program expansion suggests about 12 per cent of families in Abbotsford are headed by single mothers, most living in the city centre. Neault said mothers in the group decide on the things they’d like to work on or learn about, such as finances or budgeting.

The moms in her group asked for a photographer to come on Valentine’s Day to take photographs of them with their children. “It’s hard as a single mom to get good pictures of you and your child,” said Neault. But the most valuable thing Neault has taken from the group is unconditional support from the other mothers. “We deal with the things we’re facing as single moms collectively,” she said. “I’ve made lifelong friends and our kids are going to grow up together.” ■ For more information visit singlemothers or phone 604-895-5849.

Tab 17 shows a June 24, 2003 receipt from the Colorado-based OmniTrax for $2,400 to “Christ (sic) Clark fundraising dinner.” Other tabs show diary entries from lobbyists meeting with Clark for chats, including dinner at her house. Van Dongen also points out Clark made a point of removing herself from the final legislative vote on the BC Rail sale on Dec. 2, 2003, but her gesture begs the question: had she excused herself from earlier cabinet discussions on the matter, he asks. For her part, last week Clark again denied any wrongdoing and promised full cooperation with the commissioner. Van Dongen is committed to his pursuit – not only did he leave the B.C. Liberals, whose values and policies he continues to support, he says, he has also put more than $100,000 of his own money into research and legal fees toward his


mission. He insists it’s not personal, and it’s not political. As an MLA, he says he has a duty to pursue the questions. “No it’s not a personal thing at all. It’s not about politics, contrary to what some people are trying to say. It’s about ensuring accountability and transparency for people’s performance, and ensuring we have the best possible leadership in the province of British Columbia,” van Dongen said. Even though the matter goes back a decade, B.C. residents should care because the premier’s role has great influence over the life of the province, he said. “If that person doesn’t have ethics and integrity then everything else gets distorted. It’s a very, very powerful position and that’s why it’s so important to get the right person there, that’s why I’m focused on it,” he said. “Some people say I’m obsessed, and yes, I’m obsessed, with getting

good leadership for both British Columbia, and the Liberals.” And through van Dongen’s eyes, patterns of “avoidance” continue in Clark’s administration. He cited lack of transparency in relation to the BC Place/Telus sign deal, the Morrison mine deal, the Basi-Virk legal fees, the resignation of Clark’s chief of staff, Ken Boessenkool. “The ethics issues are pervasive. They extend across most of the decisions this premier is making today, so it does affect all British Columbians, my constituents,” he said. But despite his claims that this pursuit is not personal, van Dongen suddenly did get personal at the end of the interview. “I take no joy in this,” he said, and he choked up. “It’s about electoral responsibility, it’s about what’s good for the province. It bothered me too much. I couldn’t ignore it.” – FOLLOW US ON TWITTER: @ABBYTIMES

Notes for our American friends H

i, America! Big night for you last week. You spent about $6 billion on an election, you have the same president but a whole pile of new senators and congressfolk, you passed or didn’t pass some laws, and now everyone is a bit groggy, whether from victory toasted or sorrows drowned. America, you’re the longest lived representative democracy on the planet. You pretty much started this whole thing where we don’t get hereditary tyrants and feudal lords telling us what to do. But you still have a few kinks to work out of the process. Since we’re outsiders up here in Canada, we can see a little clearer that there are different ways you could be doing things, options you have not explored. Yes, yes, you’re exceptional, a special and unique snowflake among the nations of the world. That’s what every mom says about her kid, even when he’s eating paste. So let’s get to a few places where you could use some work. ■ Voting machines Yay, technology! It’s so awesome that you can watch liveTweet Transformers 3 on your iPad, but do you really need a machine to cast a ballot? Here in Canada, our federal election process uses a highly advanced system, involving an ink-saturated fibrous core wrapped in an ergonomic cylin-


the painful truth drical grip, which inscribes the voter’s choice on a planar surface composed of processed cellulose with a print-based display function. Yeah, when you say it that way, pen and paper sounds way more impressive. Given that you have tried punch cards (dangling chads) and a number of Vegas-style electronic voting machines, this may seem simplistic. But a pencil or pen seldom registers a vote for Candidate A as one for Candidate B, as the infamous Obama-vote-countedfor-Romney video seems to show. In addition, having a physical ballot makes recounts easier. ■ Long lines at the polls Really, America? Really? The richest and most powerful country on Earth can’t scrape together a few bucks to put another half dozen people in a church basement somewhere to cut down on waits up to four hours long? I don’t even have a real suggestion here, since it’s obvious that you should just spend more money. Not even that much; it’s

pretty cheap to hire people for a couple of shifts, every four years. I’m pretty sure that counts as part time, and you won’t have to pay them benefits. ■ Gerrymandering We used to have this problem in Canada, too. We let politicians re-draw our electoral boundaries, and boy was that a bad idea. They invariably came up with these crazy shapes that would carve the land into safe fiefdoms for as many of their friends as possible. I know that some U.S. states are cracking down, and doing what so many other countries have done: put this task in the hands of dull, dull, non-partisan bureaucrats and ex-judges. But this should really be happening nation-wide, and soon. ■ Election spending Last one here. Cap the spending. Just put some limits on it. Yes, free speech, etc., but in a country as big as the United States, where there are huge special interest groups, massive corporations, and wealthy loons, the people with the money drown out the voices of the people without money. Whether you take any of this advice or not, I’m looking forward to the show in four years. ■ Visit Matthew Claxton’s blog at

moment of silence is not too big a price to pay. It’s easily less a price than that paid by those for whom Remembrance Day is observed each year. It’s far less than the price paid by those who are commemorated by cenotaphs across the country. It’s certainly far less a price than the one paid by those whose names are engraved on thousands upon thousands of crosses and stone markers in Belgium and Holland and France and throughout most of Western Europe. A moment of silence can’t be compared with the “ultimate price.” And it doesn’t compare to those who return, some of them broken in body, some broken in spirit, and all with memories that they’d rather forget. For them – and for all those whose personal memories were obliterated on battlefields where such high prices are always exacted – we need to remember. For them, and for ourselves. Taking a moment out of the day on Nov. 11 to honour the memories of those who died in war on our behalf, as well as for those who risked death to preserve freedom and a better way of life, is more than an appreciation for the incredible sacrifices they made. As important as it is to ensure that veterans and survivors understand that their sacrifices are not overlooked as insignificant by those of us who are the recipients of the world they built, it is also important that we all remember what was sacrificed – and how steep the price was that was paid. So that there is a common understanding that no such price should be paid again. We sincerely hope you took that time on Sunday. If not, maybe think about taking it now. Lest we forget.

Post pushes e-mail

Dart hoping for a deeper debate Editor, the Times:

I was rather taken by Doug Beattie’s recent letter to the editor (Nov. 1)

TO INCLUDE YOUR LETTER, use our online form at www., contact us by e-mail at, 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.

about the controversial film Hellbound? I fear Doug has caricatured the movie as much as Doug fears the movie has caricatured the complex issue. I know Doug is a wiser and deeper person than such a response reflects in the letter to the editor. I await the measured depth and searching wisdom of Doug’s insights, in perhaps, a booklet or collection of essays on Hellbound? Obviously, letters to the editor limit what might and can be seriously said. Ron Dart Abbotsford

Integrity not tied to one’s religiosity Editor, the Times:

In his letter to the Times on Nov. 1, Rev. Doug Beattie states “this movie (Hellbound?) claims to be Christian,

thus one should expect some level of integrity here.” I do not believe in any God, spirit or otherwise; does this mean I have no integrity? The dictionary defines integrity as, “The quality of being honest and having strong moral principles.” Integrity should be expected regardless of one’s religiosity. Beck Foreman Chilliwack

Real assessment of bus use needed Editor, the Times:

Re: Bus riders face fare hikes, Times, Oct. 30. Well what do you expect when B.C. transit authorities don’t seem to have the ability to assess ‘transit needs’ and provide an ‘appropriate level of service.’ Our municipal leaders fall into the same category. We have buses costing at least $500,000

Correction – I did see a bus with nine passengers in Abbotsford, but what’s wrong with a 20passenger bus costing less than one-fifth of the cost of those behemoths that pollute our environment? Municipal leaders seem to rejoice in seeing empty buses, thinking they are providing a needed service with no concern for the cost to taxpayers. The transit authorities simply do not seem to have the ability to assess cost effectiveness and adequacy of services provided. People who use bus services should be provided with transportation, but until there is a proper assessment of needs and the cost of same, we will have to face fare hikes on a regular basis.

I heard on the radio that Canada Post is losing money. No wonder. I live in a complex on George Ferguson Way and one of the mail delivery people decided to tape over the outgoing mail slot on the complex’s mail box. Now we have no way of mailing our letters. The main post department said they cannot do anything about it, and if they don’t want to pick up mail, so be it. There are lots of people in our complex who do not have a car so there is no way they can mail anything. With the holiday season coming I am sure they will want to mail Christmas cards. Our complex is not the only one this mail person has done this to. This is why people use e-mail Bill McDonald Abbotsford

Input sought for pipeline and ALR Abbotsford residents can provide input on two controversial issues – the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion and a proposal to extract 225 acres of farmland from the ALR – at two public meetings in the coming week. On Nov. 17. from 1 to 4 p.m. at the Sandman Hotel, 32720 Simon Ave., Abbotsford,

Briefly Kinder Morgan will hold a public information session on its proposition to double its Trans Mountain oil pipeline.

Crews found 31-year old with burns RV, from page A1 after his younger brother was sent hospital with serious burns following a dispute the evening before. Emergency services had numerous 911 calls at 7:25 p.m. Wednesday about a fire in the 27000 block of Myrtle Avenue, said Const. Ian MacDonald. Police, fire and paramedics arrived on scene to find Ashby’s 31-year-old brother injured from the blaze. Witnesses reported that m o m e n t s b e f o re p o l i c e arrived, Ashby had fled the area in a vehicle. APD traced the suspect to Mission and with the help of the RCMP, arrested Ashby. “We believe an accelerant made contact with a heater and sparked a flame,” said MacDonald.

Police recommend charges of arson after a 34-year-old man allegedly torched his younger brother’s motor home, above. “We’re pretty sure the 34year-old brother caused the fire but we’re less certain about what his intention was.” The younger brother was taken to hospital with nonlife threatening injuries but the motor home was

destroyed in the fire. The victim is in a lot of pain but is telling investigators the dispute is a “family matter” rather than a police incident, said MacDonald. Ashby is in custody and is next scheduled to appear in court on Nov. 13.

BMO robber Keenan staying in jail “Give me $5,500 in large bills. Don’t make a sound. I have a gun.”



26-year-old man will spend another 11 months behind bars after pleading guilty to robbery and breakand-enter charges. Justin Keenan admitted to breaking and entering at Canadian Tire in Chilliwack last August, and robbing an Abbotsford Bank of Montreal branch a month later. He had been held in jail

since his arrest last October on drug charges. Earlier this month, Judge Russell MacKay sentenced Keenan to a total of two years in jail for the two crimes, including time served. Keenan was also sentenced to two years probation. T h e c o u r t h e a rd t h a t Keenan was caught in the act after breaking into a Canadian Tire compound in the

sting, also in Abbotsford. After the arrest, police reported that a three-yearold boy and his mother were also with Keenan at the time of the arrest. In August, Keenan was sentenced to six months jail for possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking. Abbotsford lawyer Darrel Schultz told the court that Keenan had been diagnosed over the years with several different mental illnesses, including schizophrenia,

Tourette syndrome and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Keenan, who has a criminal record that includes past convictions for break and enter, fraud and possession of stolen property, was addicted to crystal meth at the time of the crimes. He consented to taking part in an Alcoholics Anonymous program on his release and wrote a letter of apology that was read by MacKay. Another charge laid in connection with the September robbery of a Chilliwack credit union was stayed.

Community Health Program

Community Health is a program, provided by the MFCS, that aids members in fields such as Emotional Wellness, Wellness Kitchen, Active Living, Breathe Easy and much more that aid in individual support services. Workshops cover topics/aspects such as: · Emotional and mental health issues along with coping mechanisms · Various Health Clinics · Further developing participant’s pre-existing strengths. · Creating an environment where participants can share their feelings and support one another. · Aspects of Healthy Living The Community Health Worker also holds one-on-one consultations in a supportive nonjudgmental environment. We house an Outreach Worker and have partnered with Lu’ma Native Housing as a means to combat homelessness. The focus of this position is to promote health and enhance the lifestyles of the impoverished Aboriginal individuals who live in the area.

lanning for Mission’s downtown kicks off with its first open house on the topic this Thursday (Nov. 15) at the Mission Leisure Centre. Anyone interested in the future of the district’s historic downtown core is welcome to peruse storyboards, listen to the consultants’ presentation and take part in roundtable discussions. The event is on from 5:30 to 9 p.m. People can view the storyboards for the first hour, which will be followed by the PowerPoint presentation by the consultants, HB Lanarc Golder, on what makes does and doesn’t make a great downtown. “It’s to get people excited, to think about the potential for downtown,” said Sharon Fletcher, Mission’s senior planner. The purpose is “to get a healthy, sustainable downtown that will stand the test of time.” During the last two hours, from 7 to 9 p.m., those interested will be able to join one of a number of roundtable discussions, on topics determined by the consultants. “They use this to draw out information from the public, to learn what’s important to them to see in downtown,” said Fletcher. So far, the interest is greater than her department first anticipated – they decided to move the open house from the old Buy Low Foods building downtown to the roomier auditorium at the Leisure Centre, she said. The information gathered from the first open house will be taken into a charrette, an intensive two-day planning session that should distill several ideas for the area, which in turn will be whittled down to the most feasible for the community. While charrettes are often highly technical discussions that usually involve technical personnel, this one will include several community members on a 20-member charrette team, said Fletcher. “I can’t wait, I think it’s going to be very exciting.” In a rough timeline, there should be some “preferred options” hammered out by February, followed by more workshops and public input. While the impetus for the revitalization of downtown is primarily economic, planning

will also look at the social aspects of the neighbourhood, so there will be some workshops dedicated to the social issues in the downtown core. Like many other small towns, Mission’s downtown has seen spotty economic activity. Earlier this year, the district changed the downtown zoning to block the opening of a small neighbourhood pharmacy, after complaints from area merchants that it could possibly attract unwanted clientele. The planning process will be a chance for area residents and merchants to say what they’d like to see downtown, said Fletcher. She said the plans should be done by the end of April, when a report will be tabled with the council. The council then will decide to proceed with the recommended plans or to take some modified route. Even before the council adopts any action, however, there may be some “quick wins,” said Fletcher, easy, inexpensive steps that could be taken immediately. Meanwhile, in order to get as much community input as possible during the whirlwind process, the district is setting up several avenues for communication, said Fletcher. “It’s a tight time frame and we’re worried that people would think they weren’t given a chance to comment,” she said. The district will have a downtown planning link on its website, www.mission. ca. Storyboards will be up at the Leisure Centre, Mission Library and at city hall during the process, and flyers will be at those sites and in downtown stores. Additionally, a district employee will be at the community policing office on First Avenue on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 1 – 4 p.m. to answer questions. Fletcher is also building an e-mail list, through which she will send announcements to interested parties. If you want to get on the email list, make the request to Her staff will monitor this e-mail for ideas and comments from residents and downtown stakeholders. The Mission Leisure Centre is at 7650 Grand Street.

Pilots flying at top of league T

he Abbotsford Pilots are the dominant force in Junior B hockey right now, sitting atop the Harold Brittain Conference with 10 wins in 16 games as of Nov. 8. Their record of 10-5-0-1 is good for 21 points, four points ahead of their nearest rivals, the Aldergrove Kodiaks, in the Pacific International Junior Hockey League. In recent action the Pilots pummeled the Port Moody Panthers 8-1 with goals coming from every which way on Nov. 2 at MSA Arena. Dylan Cusmano, Devon Allenby, Joel Atkinson and Brady Lawlor scored for Abbotsford in the first period. In the second it was all Pilots again with unanswered goals from Mico Dragutinovic, Allenby (his second of the night) and Adam Rossi, while Brandon Daase scored in the third period to make the score a lopsided 8-0 for the Pilots. The Panthers avoided the shutout as Cody Stephenson found the net with 46 seconds left in the game. Netminder Aaron Oakley faced only 13 shots on goal in the win as the Pilots pounded two Panthers goalies with 51 shots on net. On Nov. 3 the Pilots traveled to North Vancouver to take on the Wolf Pack, the fifth-ranked team in the Tom Shaw Conference, where they pulled off a 3-2 win, with power play goals coming from Brady Lawlor and Michael Tebbutt and an unassisted goal from Joel Atkinson at 12:43 to seal the win. Oakley, again in net, stopped 29 of 31 shots as he remains atop the leaderboard with nine wins and a 1.79 GAA. The Pilots faced Aldergrove on Friday and Port Moody on Saturday but details were not available at press deadline. Their next home game is Nov. 16 at 7:30 p.m. when they meet the North Vancouver Wolf Pack at MSA Arena. – JEAN KONDA-WITTE/TIMES


Bearcats libero is the best



Pilots forward Adam Rossi was stopped by the Port Moody goalie early in the second period, but he scored later as the Pilots recorded a lopsided 8-1 victory over the Panthers at MSA Arena recently.

Pink in the rink rallies support



n Abbotsford minor hockey team of eight-year-old boys decided to show their true colours in support of one of their teammates at a recent game at Centre Ice. As October was Breast Cancer Awareness month, the H4-5 Abbotsford Junior Jets wanted to support their friend and fellow player Calum Bell by wearing pink in their game against Maple Ridge on Oct. 27. So they laced up with pink and taped their hockey sticks in pink and went on to beat their opponents 10-7. But it wasn’t the score that left a lasting impact. “The goal [was] to raise awareness to the terrible disease of cancer and how this disease impacts everyone,” coach Erin Thornton wrote in an e-mail, using this common goal to unite the team. But they really did it for Calum, who was only nine months old when his mom Kari was diagnosed with breast cancer. His early years were full of cancer treatments and surgeries, most of which he was too young to understand. As he got older, his mom was

olumbia Bible College first year libero (a player who specializes in defense) Sharaya Schulte of Abbotsford was named PACWEST Player of the Week in women’s volleyball for Nov. 4. In the Bearcats recent roadtrip to Cranbrook to face the College of the Rockies, 5’6” Schulte did not look like a rookie as she led her CBC teammates to a pair of 3-0 wins against the Avalanche. Schulte had 12 digs Friday and 12 more on Saturday as she anchored a steady Bearcat defence both nights. But more impressive than her 4.0 digs per set average both nights was her outstanding serve receive performance. The Avalanche peppered the rookie with 21 serves on Friday evening and an additional 28 on Saturday. “The Avalanche are a very tough serving team” said CBC head coach Duncan Harrison. “Sharaya was on the move for the duration of both matches. She really led by example on both serve receive and defence.”

Hockey legend here

Kari lost her fight to cancer almost two years ago when Calum was only six years old. “Death is a concept that little

kids should not have to think about,” said his dad, Brian. “He knows that his mom’s spirit is in heaven, but he doesn’t understand why God can’t bring her back so he can see her again.” Today, Calum, now eight, is a normal, happy boy who gets a lot

of love from friends and family. “Having pink laces and pink hockey tape honours his mom so he was quite stoked about getting the laces and pink tape,” Brian said of the recent hockey game. For his teammates to don pink for their game, it meant a lot.

Yvan Cournoyer will be the honoured guest at the Legends of Hockey night for the Abbotsford Heat on Nov. 30. Fans attending the game will have the opportunity to meet the hockey legend and get an autograph. Cournoyer, a 10-time Stanley Cup winner, will be at the AESC when the Heat take on the Hamilton Bulldogs, the AHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens. Playing for Montreal for a decade and a half, Cournoyer was nicknamed ‘The Roadrunner’ for his stature and speed. He was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1982.


UFV honours its own


ebra Neufeld, women’s rowing team and Sam Freeman, men’s basketball team, are the UFV Cascades/ Abbotsford Heat athletes of the week, for the week for Nov. 4. Neufeld helped the Cascades women’s rowing team to a Top 10 ranking at the 2012 Canadian University Row i n g C h a m p i o n s h i p at Burnaby Lake this past weekend. The Cascades finished eighth out of 20 schools participating in the rowing Canada event. Neufeld, from Abbotsford, rowed out of position on the Cascades women’s eight boat due to an injury and helped



the Cascades earn a second place finish to the University of Guelph in the B race with a time of 7:24.4 “This was a difficult thing to do at this time in the sea-

son. It meant Debra had to switch the side she was rowing on in the boat, and compete from a brand new position in the finals,” said coach Liz Chisholm.

Freeman, a fifth year senior, led UFV to a pair of Canada West regular season victories to start the 2012-13 campaign. Freeman scored a teamhigh 28 points in Saturday’s 80-73 victory over Mount Royal, and on Sunday added 12 more points to post a 20 points-per-game average after the first week. Freeman also recorded 12 total rebounds, two steals and two assists on the weekend. “Sam shot well all weekend. He hit some critical baskets on the weekend in key situations,” said head coach Adam Friesen. – STAFF REPORTER
