Fire and police come to the Connors’ rescue Leading campaign to help seniors who lost home in blaze ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com
bbotsford fire and police departments are spearheading a community effort to rebuild the home of an elderly couple left with nothing after being burned out of their house. Bill and Annie Connor, aged 88 and 86, went out for their daily coffee on Nov. 11 and came home to find their Downes Road house in flames. The property where the couple lived with their son John, who is in his 60s, has been in the family since the 1920s when Bill’s parents arrived in Canada.

KidSport stretches children’s athletic dreams into reality Healthy dose of giving kids an even playing field
Abbotsford Coun. Simon Gibson aims to run provincially in the Abbotsford-Mission riding.

“There’s so many things out there that kids get into trouble with, but sports teaches them things like teamwork, respect and obedience to authority.” – Shara McKinney mom –JEAN KONDA-WITTE/TIMES
She and her husband Sean hit a financial rough patch last year after McKinney couldn’t work after undergoing two surgeries in the last few years. But the pair wanted to ensure that their three kids still had the opportunity to be involved in organized sports despite their cash crunch. “My husband and I personally didn’t have that opportunity growing up, so its precious to us to have the kids involved in activities outside of the home and school,” McKinney. With the help of KidSport, McKinney’s sons, Conner and Justin, were able to play football and her daughter Kennedy got her start in gymnastics. “KidsSport was huge,” said McKinney. “It kept our kids grounded. There’s so many things out there that kids get into trouble with, but sports teaches them things like teamwork, respect and obedience to authority.” While McKinney’s sons are taking a break from football, six-year-old Kennedy has become obsessed with gymnastics.

It could help another little boy become the next Wayne Gretzky; you just don’t know where it could lead too.” Now that McKinney’s health has improved and she’s working again, the family can afford at the moment to pay for Kennedy’s gymnastic fees on their own. But they are grateful for the boost they got from KidSport when things were tight, McKinney said. “ We’re happy to be in a place where we might not have to apply [for help],” she said. “Maybe we can even start giving to the program as our finances improve. That would be awesome.”

Energized for a fresh downtown Plenty of opportunity & challenge awaits Mission
Christmas tree lights up this Sunday
CHRISTINA TOTH CToth@abbotsfordtimes.com
deas and energy fueled lively roundtable discussions on Thursday night during the first public consultation session regarding the future of downtown Mission. More than 130 residents came to the leisure centre to hear what consultants from HB Lanarc had to say, and of those, more than 60 stayed to take part in roundtable brainstorming sessions on five downtown issues. While the downtown has a pleasing urban context, with its traditional grid, historic buildings, beautiful views and south-facing aspect, the consultants said it also has challenges, such as the lack of civic services, adjacent cheap, developable land and a provincial highway cutting through it. The district is paying HB Lanarc $170,000 to come up with a workable strategy by March 31 to rejuvenate commerce on First Avenue and the immediate area. Like many historic city centres across North America, Missionâ€™s downtown competes with commercial development beyond its boundaries that ends up drawing people away. The district mulled over revitalization plans in 1998 and 2008, said Mayor Ted Adlem, but â€œwe didnâ€™t have a council prepared to move forward.â€? But once implementation plans are complete at end of March, â€œthis council will move forward with it,â€? he added. After Thursdayâ€™s presentation and workshops, the next step will be to create a 20-member committee, composed of interested locals and professionals to take part in a two-day charrette. HB Lanarc urban planner Joaquin Karakas invited the public to submit applications to be part of the

People have until Wednesday to apply. The charrette is an intensive planning session set for Jan. 16 and 17 in which participants will hammer out some specific plans. The team will present its work at an open house on Jan. 17. The consultants will also talk to social agencies and business groups during the process. The charrette teamâ€™s ideas will be further distilled into a report due March 31. The council will then decide to move ahead on the plan or parts of it.

other aging city centres. These included creating public meeting spaces, incorporating chains or big box stores as anchor tenants, and drawing farm markets, festivals, civic and educational institutions to the area.

Sub-tropical stor m Sandy smashed into 24 states on the eastern seaboard on Oct. 29, bringing high winds and a storm surge that devastated hundreds of small towns, while even iconic streets and subways in central New York City turned into disaster zones. As the hurricane withdrew, the call went out across North America for skilled line workers. More than 500,000 people were then without power in the New York/New Jersey area, and local power companies in the region
didnâ€™t have enough skilled people or equipment to do repairs in a timely fashion. Pennellâ€™s company, which often responds to storm blackouts in Washington State, got a request from National Grid Ltd. to send crews and equipment. The B.C. convoy, with bucket trucks, pickups and tools, left the Pacific Border Crossing at 1 a.m. on Nov. 3 and drove 4,800 kilometres non-stop from the Fraser Valley to the U.S. east coast. They mustered in Hartford, Conn., to wait out a second storm that brought snow to the region. Valley Powerâ€™s destination was Long Island, east of New York City,
Several houses along the beach were even lifted off their foundations, Pennell said. â€œIt meant all the work had to be done by hand. We had to carry the poles into the backyards and pretty much had to climb all the poles,â€? he said. Work crews could be seen on every street, working 16-hour shifts. They ate and showered in FEMA disaster tents and slept in a row of 50 tractor trailers, with 36 men in each. By mid-week, only 20,000 homes left without power. Still, even with the grinding work schedule, â€œitâ€™s been nice working

where more than 200,000 homes in small towns such as Hicksville, Seaford, Massapequa and Bellmore remained without power. However, when they arrived, they found their bucket trucks couldnâ€™t be used since most power lines ran through backyards, which were littered with fallen trees and storm debris.
conditions for the boys, it was 16 C,â€? Pennell said, and it was great to meet powerline workers from around North America. The technical challenge was also exciting. In B.C. line workers handle high voltage wires with safety â€˜hot sticks,â€™ whereas in New York, they were required to wear rubber gloves and sleeves. â€œLinemen are a different breed â€“ we knew what we were getting into,â€? said Pennell, a Newfoundlander whose dad and brother are also linemen. â€œWeâ€™re the only ones who get excited when the power goes out.â€?

Revitalization challenge is to make downtown economically attractive DOWNTOWN, from page A4 A key to revitalization is to make the physically constrained area financially feasible, “which is often a hard one to crack,” particularly if there are cheaper, open, undeveloped land spaces nearby. Lanarc is using a team of land economists familiar with Mission to devise incentives to attract development and private investment. The aim will be to create conditions to boost economic development, he said, as well as to create an environment with a “stickiness”
factor – bringing in venues and services to keep people in the area for a variety of activities. One big challenge is the Lougheed Highway that runs through the centre of town. While it brings traffic to the downtown core, the route also brings commercial trucks that residents and shopkeepers say are dangerous. Many downtown locals would like to see the highway rerouted to bypass the First Avenue corridor, but the ministry of highways transportation has been resistant to the idea for decades. As for where the funding would
come from to pay for a downtown revitalization, “I think that money will come from the District of Mission, an upper education post-secondary institution and a progressive developer. That’s what I believe,” said Adlem. ■ To apply to be on the charrette team, send contact details and a short paragraph on why you should be considered to firstname.lastname@example.org, bring your application to the planning department at city hall, or bring it to the Community Policing Office by Wednesday (Nov. 21).

Pot laws not about all or nothing W
hat is really at stake if B.C. follows Washington State and Colorado and successfully legalizes marijuana? Money, of course, that other green substance. Let’s start with the estimated value of the illicit pot growing industry here in B.C. It’s often claimed to be between $6-$8 billion, a fairly rough estimate given that none of the principals are filling out any corporate tax forms or quarterly earning reports. Even if it’s lower than the estimates, it’s a huge industry. By contrast, in 2011 the entire forest industry had a value of just under $10 billion. If the local pot growing economy goes legit, we’ll see some unusual effects, only some of them strictly economic. Everyone who argues for legalization points out that we can then tax the bejezus out of marijuana. How much would that raise? In B.C., the tax rate for small businesses is 2.5 per cent, 10 per cent for big businesses. Let’s assume, very conservatively, that we get nothing but small Mom and Pop artisinal ganja growers and small-scale retailers. Let’s also take the lower $6 billion valuation of the industry. That would mean about $150 million in provincial tax revenues off the top. But wait! The cost of growing pot will drop substantially if it’s legal, and grown in the open. Maybe it won’t be that costly to
the painful truth sell? Except that it will be taxed at the point of sale, too. So that’s another few million bucks a year. Sin taxes, plus sales taxes, add up quickly. And that’s not even considering the federal tax implications. Then there are the personal income taxes that would be paid by those legally employed in the industry. So what about effects beyond the purely taxational? We have no grow ops in houses, because growing outdoors or in greenhouses is cheaper, so there are a few more houses on the market than otherwise. Not enough to bring down prices, though. We have a whole lot of unemployed criminals. Some fraction of them will go legit and turn themselves into small farmers and storekeepers. Others will not make this transition. I’m thinking of the Langley man who stabbed another man to death purely out of the suspicion that the other man might have stolen his pot plants. It’s hard to imagine a ragefilled killer fitting in well at a chamber of commerce meeting.
So some gangsters are going to try to move into the remaining illicit drugs, like heroin and cocaine. There might be a gang war as the crooks fight over the pieces of a smaller pie. While we’ll see more government tax revenues, this will be somewhat offset. A significant number of small businesses will close their doors. They’ll all be places that could plausibly accept a lot of cash payments: restaurants, bars, hair and nail salons, corner stores, and so on. Because in every community where there are pot growers, there is a need to launder money. In the long term, our society wouldn’t look a lot different. Some people smoke pot now, some people will never smoke it if it’s legal. (Like me.) People commit crimes now, they’re not going to stop if pot is legal. Things could be a bit more stable, both tax-and crime-wise in the long term, but it won’t turn B.C. into a magical land of unicorns and pixies. But we don’t make policy decisions based on false ideas that we will create utopias or dystopias. We should make them based on what seems like best practices. To me, it looks like things would be better with legal marijuana than with the current system. ■ Visit Matthew Claxton’s blog at tinyurl.com/7mwo2qj.
ne has to feel for Premier Christy Clark, no matter what one’s political affiliations may be. In one week she was faced with a former Liberal MLA, John van Dongen, yet again, demanding an investigation into the 2003 sale of B.C. Rail, this time focusing on Clark’s reputed role in the sale, or her attendance during discussions on the sale. The conflict charge arises out of her brother’s and ex-husband’s connections to the sale at the time. She said she was glad to “put a fork” into the allegations. But we think she’d rather put a fork into some of her critics’ eyes. And then her sincere and important work on anti-bullying is somewhat overshadowed when the mother of Amanda Todd is told she cannot attend the bullying forum – even as an observer – even though other parents who have lost children to suicide are at the event. The rationale is that her appearance, given the recent suicide of her daughter, may upset some younger people at the event. It’s a debatable rationale – but even if it was a solid rationale – the way it was handled was clumsy and insensitive. And then, to top it off, more leaked correspondence from the Burnaby Hospital’s citizen consultation committee paints a picture of calculating and out-of-touch Liberal insiders more intent on spinning than fixing health care in the city. Meanwhile, over in the NDP camp, Adrian Dix watches as Mike Farnworth shares more damning correspondence from the committee. Dix doesn’t even comment on the brouhaha, seemingly too busy making friends with the business community and allaying their fears to be bothered to either get, or appear, negative. All this during the week that is exactly six months before the next provincial election. Perhaps Clark is saying to herself, “It can’t get worse – can it?” ■ To comment on this editorial, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

There’s still value in providing Bibles
No one remembers we’re all religious Editor, the Times: It is amazing what people don’t know. It should be understood that “everyone is religious.” As the dictionary says: Religion is what you believe. Again, what you believe is your religion. Everyone believes something, therefore everyone is religious. But religion does not save us from our sins, only faith in our Lord Jesus Christ will accomplish that. Gilbert Gerbrandt Abbotsford
What’s scary about Bibles in schools?
there is something to it.” Let me assure you that nobody is obliged to accept any of that which is written in the Bible. You are invited to do so. Like any other invitation you can and may refuse it. Lou DeVries Abbotsford
Everybody wins with free Heat tickets Editor, the Times: It was distressing to read about Abbotsford city council having to pay the Abbotsford Heat $1.7 million as a result of a revenue guarantee that the city negotiated to get the team to play in Abbotsford, and to justify the expense of building the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre. Instead of giving away a lot of taxpayers’ money and getting nothing in return, why couldn’t the city simply purchase 100,000 tickets at $17 and send them out with the property tax bills. Spread over the 38-game home schedule, it would put about 2,600 fans in the stands at every game, give the taxpayers something for their money, and just maybe generate some interest in the team. R. Mawdsley Agassiz
Don’t fear, emergency budget funds are here Editor, the Times: We need not worry. We are assured, according to your Nov. 6 news story, that the unexpected additional city subsidy of $866,000 for the Abbotsford Heat’s 2011-2012 shortfall will be paid. The city manager assures us taxpayers that it “will be made up by economizing in other areas.” This money is, after all, needed urgently to cover the city’s contract commitment. One wonders why it took this additional shortfall to discover that this sum of $866,000 was not, in fact, urgently needed to pay for other items in the budget. John H. Redekop Abbotsford
The Bible is a little hard to fact check Editor, the Times:
Editor, the Times: The tone of those who object to handing out Bibles at school sounds to me as if they are afraid of something. Are they afraid that when their children or maybe themselves start reading this book that their conscience might say to them: “Maybe
Mr. Lanning seems to be making the remarkable claim that because we do not have the original manuscripts, we therefore cannot trust the Bible. Whilst I can agree with the premise of his argument and many of the points made therein, his conclusion is ignoratio

Christians claim that the Bible is the word of God. But how can such a claim be verified? If the Bible was the word of God, then certain things would have to be true about it: It would claim to be the word of God. It would be historically accurate when it addresses historical matters. The authors would have to be trustworthy. It would be thematically unified and without contradictions. We have to receive accurate copies of the original manuscripts. It would make statements that would reveal knowledge about the way things work beyond the knowledge of its day. It would be prophetic. The message would be unique. The words would have a transforming power. I would argue that the Bible has each of these characteristics which distinguish it from all other book in a way that cannot be counterfeited. Mr. Lanning finished by making a remark about Plato. With Plato’s work there is a 1,300-year gap between the time that his works were written and the earliest copies we have. Our universities have no problem in trusting the works of Plato, so why should we have a problem the reliability of the Bible? The New Testament documents are better preserved and more numerous (over 5,000 copies) than any other ancient writing. Because they are so numerous, they can be crosschecked for accuracy . . . and they are very consistent. The message of the Bible is unique and there is no other book like it, crack it open and read the message of the gospel, which has the power to save. Joseph Shelton-Green Dewdney
Remembrance Day grows in importance Editor, the Times: This is in response to Bob Groeneveld’s ‘Just a few things to think about’ column on Nov. 8. As per him, some people
don’t like war, however, the reality is that the most of the people are peaceloving and don’t like war, and almost the complete soldier fraternity is a proponent of this ideology. Since the soldiers have to get through the hell of war and they can visualize the collateral damage a war can cause, as such, they would always vote against any war mongering effort. The famous dogma that “war is diplomacy by other means” is being professed and also is being vigorously followed by some people. Let us ask ourselves as to who are these people? Some may say that “politics is the last refuge of the scoundrels” and these worthy people play an important role to initiate this conflagration of war. Let us try to dissuade and wean away these people from war and selfdestruction. As Sun Tzu had said, “to win without fighting is best” needs to be practised. Disciplined soldiers wage a war on behalf of a nation following just and well-considered orders. For a soldier, no sacrifice is too great to achieve victory in a war since there are no runners-up in such a conflict. As such, soldiers of the day must possess winnable qualities of sound character, hard training, latest equipment and technology. On this count a passing comment of Bob is loud and clear that equipment of our forces “is not always up to snuff.” This aspect deserves full attention and should not be undermined. Our “warlessness” will not be accountable for unfavorable results in war but our obsolete equipment and technology will. Lastly as General MacArthur had said that “old soldiers do not die, they just fade away,” fade away they must but not unsung and uncared for. Post-retirement care is as important as hard training and the latest equipment for a soldier. Events like Remembrance Day “celebrations” go a long way in bolstering the morale of soldiers waging a war on behalf our nation in any part of the globe. All those who planned and took part in
these celebrations deserve commendation. Harnek Singh Toor Aldergrove
Veterans deserve more from Canada Editor, the Times: It is well past time for citizens – particularly Conservative supporters – to contact their representatives on the issue of the embarrassingly low payouts to veterans in need. Our government has no trouble at all sending young men and women to locations where
horrible things happen to them – why are we not just as quick to take care of them when they come home sick and wounded? Plenty of tax dollars appear to be available for MP’s generous salaries and pensions – why is so little remaining for those who have truly served our country ? Regina Dalton Abbotsford

I’m writing in response to the Nov. 8 article: ‘Investigating God’s ‘creep.’’ I don’t see the problem with Gideons continuing their decades-old practice of handing out copies of the New Testament to students who request them. When I was in school, a copy of the Bible could easily be found on the library shelf. However, a new generation has now created a new law to restrict this freedom from the next generation. And this new law also bans students from receiving Bibles in Canada. It seems laws are continually changing with the times. With these laws changing as they are I hope one day people will look back and remember them as they once were. But like with the classic novel, Animal Farm, old laws change into new laws and the next generation will soon forget. But let us not forget the wisdom passed down from our forefathers or the sacrifice God made for the love of all his children. And let us not forget the freedom to give out Bibles as a gift to those who want it, which our country used to hold so dear. And let us not forget the way things used to be, lest we are convinced it was never so. Maybe it’s best to write it somewhere, so one day it can be passed on and not forgotten. Dan Cameron Mission

f you’re confused about which of the latest gadgets to get for your loved ones this holiday season, help is here. Take a look at the season’s ‘gadget trends’ courtesy of the team at RedFlagDeals.com, Canada’s largest bargain hunting site. ■ Tablets: A sleek new tablet is probably on the list of many this season. There are many brands and models available, but the Apple iPad is a pretty safe bet. If you’re on a tighter budget, the Google Nexus 7 at under $300 is a good buy. ■ Video game systems: The Nintendo Wii U is expected to be a really big seller this season. Elsewhere, expect good sale prices on the
Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 as they are both a couple of years older. ■ Cheaper HDTVs: Not everyone is sold on the latest fancy 3D TVs. The good news is that if you don’t need 3D, you can expect deals on plain HDTVs – even big ones in the 50-60” range. ■ MP3 players: Smartphones can play music and videos, but there’s been a resurgence of standalone portable music players. They’re great for jogging, going to the gym and other activities where you’d rather leave your pricey smartphone at home.

While we know that it’s better to give than receive, still it’s always nice when a gift exchange doesn’t result in awkward silence, tears, or a store return. To avoid gift giving disasters this year, check out these easy tips from shopping experts at the bargain hunting website, RedFlagDeals.com: ■ Use your ears. Listen up when someone is talking about their hobby, so you can avoid buying something they already have or something
they won’t be able to use. Striking up a conversation with them is a great way to narrow things down. ■ Crowd source. If you’re not sure about your gift, it never hurts to consult other people. Your best bet is people close to the recipient. You can also consult the community at RedFlagDeals. com, which has many savvy shoppers among its 500,000 members. ■ D o s o m e re s e a rc h . There’s nothing worse than a
great gift that just misses the mark, like a beautiful sweater in the wrong size. If you’re buying a video game, make sure you’re buying it for the right system. You don’t want to show up with the greatest, hottest game from 2008. ■ It’s a gift, not a lecture. Even if you mean well, giving gifts like a self-help book or dieting book may offend people. Instead, you could play it safe and give a gift card to a sporting goods store. You never want your gift to make someone feel bad. – WWW.NEWSCANADA.COM

While it might feel inevitable to cash in a sick day or skip a holiday party, there are lots of ways to give seasonal illnesses like the common cold a run for their money.

• Don’t over indulge – during the holiday season it is easy to let your health routines slide. Keep in mind that just because you’re celebrating doesn’t mean all your routines should fall to the wayside.
• Do wash your hands often and keep hand sanitizer nearby when a sink is not available. • Don’t overdo it – resist the urge to attend every social function and late night out. • Do keep your living environment clean. This includes your physical space and the air quality in your home. For the best health protection during cold and flu season, consider air filtration like the Bionaire AER1 System with customizable filters to

he most important link between your diet and arthritis is your weight. Being overweight puts an extra burden on your weight-bearing joints including your back, hips, knees, ankles and feet, especially when they are already damaged or under strain. If you are overweight and have arthritis in any of your weight-bearing joints, losing weight is essential in managing your condition. One of the best ways to maintain a healthy weight is through good eating habits. The Arthritis Society recommends ways to cut excess calories to achieve an improved body weight. Reduce fat intake. A balanced diet should include a small amount of unsaturated fats. Choosing the right amount and types of fats can lower your risk of developing arthritis, disease inflammation. Reduce sugar intake. Sugar contains empty calories and has no other food value, so it can be cut back without losing any nutrients. Limit or avoid adding sugar to drinks and cereals. Dried fruit like raisins or dates can be used to sweeten cereals and provide vitamins, minerals and fibre to help keep your body nourished. Increase daily physical activity. Exercise not only uses up calories that would otherwise be stored as fat, but it increases your strength and flexibility, and improves general health, including your heart and circulation. Arthritis can make exercise difficult, but simple activities like walking the family dog helps. Swimming is a good exercise because it takes weight off the joints.

Brain disease or bad behaviour? I f someone told you they had a “chronic, relapsing brain disease that was fatal if untreated,” how would you react? But when you found out that same chronic disease was addiction – would you feel the same way? Canadians are the second largest consumers of prescription opioids worldwide and an estimated 200,000 Canadians are addicted to prescription pain killers. Yet given the lack of surveillance data along with the stigma surrounding addiction, it’s a challenge to accurately track the disease. Despite this, patients are still faced with a significant stigma. According to a recent national poll conducted by Leger Marketing, more than one in four Canadians believe opioid addiction is a
voluntary lifestyle choice and another quarter admit they would think less of a friend, relative, or colleague if they knew they were an addict. Almost half of Canadians believe people with opioid addiction would rather destroy relationships with family and friends than get help. Issues like the stigma of addiction and long wait times for physician can make accessing treatment very challenging for patients, but its importance along with psychosocial support like counseling, cannot be overstated. Your doctor is a resource for any questions or concerns about opioids or opioid addiction. – WWW.NEWSCANADA.COM

Fall series features Brody talking about language UFV lecture runs Nov. 21
housands of languages are disappearing; a few are coming to dominate. What is the origin of this loss and change? What does it mean for those who speak about particular places in their own ways? And do the Inuit really have 46 words for snow? Anthropologist, writer and filmmaker Hugh Brody will examine these concepts at UFV on Nov. 21 in a lecture entitled, Found in translation: how many words are there for snow? Reflection on the place of language in the destiny of culture. The free public event, part of the fall research lecture series at UFV, will take place on Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. in B101 (lecture theatre) at the Abbotsford campus. Admission is free and the public is welcome. â€œIâ€™ll be looking at the way in which one particular kind of language â€“ the Indo-European strain â€“ has taken over a large proportion of the world,â€? said Brody. â€œWeâ€™ll look at how that happened, which will entail a quick overview of 10,000 years of human history, and also at the implications for our world and some of its greatest tragedies.â€? Brody holds the Canada Research Chair in Aboriginal Studies at the University of the Fraser Valley. His contributions to seeking change and justice for aboriginal communities began in the 1970s with land use and occupancy studies of northern Canada, and his role as an expert witness for the Mackenzie Valley pipeline inquiry and the Treaty 8 land claims. Educated at Oxford and an honourary associate of the Scott Polar Institute at the University of Cambridge, he made documentaries with aboriginal people in many parts of

CRASH TIRE TROUBLE
First symposium underway today
â€“ ROCHELLE BAKER/TIMES
This BMW was badly damaged after a run-in with a Hummer in the 31700 block of South Fraser Way around 1:30 p.m. Thursday. A tire was completely torn off the Hummerâ€™s axle and somehow embedded in the car. Witness Kristin Welsh reported seeing the Hummer merge into the BMWâ€™s lane, striking the car. â€œIt literally looked like the Hummer drove up onto the back of the car,â€? she said. No one was injured in the crash.
The city is hosting its first Abbotsford Economic Symposium today from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre. Speakers include John Furlong, Ian Hanomansing, and Steve Podborski, For more, visit abbotsfordinvite. ca/symposium2012.

Irons sets rushing record Hawks trounce Highlanders to advance to semis
The Hawks will now meet the Mt. Douglas Rams in the Triple-A semifinal on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. at UBC’s Thunderbird Stadium.
Irons sets new high school record for yards rushing
he W.J. Mouat Hawks are one step closer to the Subway Bowl final as they beat the West Vancouver Highlanders 55-20 in Triple-A quarter-final varsity football Friday night at UBC’s Thunderbird Stadium. Tailback Maleek Irons carried 30 times for 322 yards, scoring six touchdowns in the first half, which included a TD when he fell on a stripped ball in the West Vancouver end zone. He added a seventh major with a 50-yard run in the third quarter. With the effort, the running back who broke the all-time single season rushing record, was quick to credit his blockers. “It’s the team, it’s not just me,” he said after the game. “Everyone does their best but I get recognized for it.” And it’s true. The Mouat offensive line is a technical terror, helping open the lanes that Irons flows in to. But he also got those last three-tofour tough yards after a tackle. “For us today, it was to be in the proper position against the quarterback and not give him a lot of running lanes,” said head coach Denis Kelly. “So we shut him down, by and

W.J.M’s Maleek Irons (here in an earlier game) scored seven touchdowns and set a rushing record in the Hawks 55-20 win over West Van Friday at UBC. large, and when they went to the sprint-out game, we adapted to that.” With Irons sitting out for most of the second half, QB Mario Narte threw to Chris Brake for the Hawks final score in the third quarter. Adam Coates put up five PATs [points after tries] and Taylor Hinton
is credited with a 2-point conversion in the first quarter. The defence was huge for the Hawks with Hinton recording seven tackles; Levi Hua, four tackles and two sacks; Sheridan Lawley, five tackles, one sack; Nick Westad, three tackles and two sacks and Hunter Struthers with three interceptions.
W.J. Mouat’s Maleek Irons has added his biggest record yet to an eye-popping season on the football field. On Friday night, the Grade 11 running back broke what is believed to be the B.C. high school all-time single-season rushing record of 3,173 yards over 11 games set by Coquitlam-Centennial running back Reg Bradshaw in 2001. Irons, in his team’s 55-20 Subway Bowl quarter-final victory over West Vancouver, carried 30 times for 322 yards and six touchdowns. That gave Irons 3,184 yards and 42 touchdowns over 11 games. Mouat, set to face Mt. Douglas, the same team he set the B.C. singlegame rushing record of 491 yards against at home in October, is Irons’ next test. The teams will face each other in the Triple-A semifinal Saturday at Thunderbird Station at UBC at 5:30 p.m. If the No. 1-ranked Hawks win, Irons could potentially get a chance to keep pushing that standard even higher in the Subway Bowl final Dec. 1 on the fast-track carpet at B.C.
