ven as a crew of volunteers stripped the inside of his firedamaged home and cleared the surrounding property Wednesday, Bill Connor couldn’t believe what was happening. “I’m kind of overwhelmed,” he said, as an excavator picked up one of his old cars. Connor’s Abbotsford home, where the 88-year-old lived with his wife, Annie, 86, and son John, caught fire

Police and fire crews have already begun rebuilding the seniors’ burned-out home on the morning of Nov. 11 as the family was out for their daily coffee. When they returned, the house was in flames and firefighters were already on scene. The fire had started in the chimney. The family had no insurance – they couldn’t afford to make the repairs necessary to qualify – and their house wasn’t livable. They were devastated and unsure

David Sahlstrom, with MSA Museum Society, wants to see Abbotsford’s last one-room schoolhouse moved and preserved as an exciting piece of heritage. “That will be a considerable expense,” said Salhstrom, adding the society has applied for federal grants and launched a fundraising campaign. The museum society hopes to see the building on site by the spring. “It’s a project we’re really excited about and looking for help from anyone interested in partnering with us,” said Salhstrom. “We have faith in the community that we’ll see the support we need.”

Recumbent cyclist chasing down driver

Brightest shine at biz awards

‘No way he didn’t know he hit me’

n Abbotsford man is lucky to be alive after he was struck while riding his bright yellow recumbent bicycle on South Parallel Road last Thursday. He’s hoping someone can help identify the driver of the car. Gino Marozzo, 57, is nurturing a cracked collarbone, bruises and scratches around his head this week, but what really disturbs him is whoever hit his low-riding velomobile left the scene. To make matters worse, he’s sure it is a vehicle he’s seen in the area many times during his regular bike r ides around Sumas Prairie. He says it was a late model, four-door Chrysler Sebring sedan in a light gold colour. It must have some damage on its front right side.

“It made a loud noise. There’s no possibility that he didn’t know he struck me,” said Marozzo on Friday. The incident happened at about 10:45 a.m. Thursday as Marozzo was riding east on South Parallel Road, about h a l f w a y b e t we e n S u m a s Wa y a n d Whatcom Road. The weather was clear and the road is fairly straight there. He was riding his bullet-shaped $10,000 Belgian-made WAW velomobile, an incumbent bicycle that’s enclosed in a light-weight, carbon fiber shell, that’s a two-tone sunny yellow and light grey. It is also equipped with bright lights front and rear. He could see a vehicle in the distance coming up behind him from the west in his rear-view mirrors, but as it got closer, “to my horror he didn’t see HIT, page A16

he best of Abbotsford’s business community were honoured at the 17th annual Business Excellence Awards at Tradex Wednesday. The gala celebration is an established tradition in Abbotsford’s business community, and the latest event was the most successful ever, said Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce executive director Allan Asaph. A total of 530 guests attended the gala to see 90 nominees vie for awards in 11 different categories. The crowd was entertained by the popular Business in Black dance troupe and later entranced by Shawn Farquhar – a two-time world champion of magic. “It was a record crowd,” said Asaph. “It was a magical evening. The decorations and trimmings made it a very special occasion.” Farquhar, who displayed his prowess as a master card magician, w owe d g u e s t s a t t h e f o r m a l evening, said Asaph. “He dazzled and surprised everybody in the place, I can tell you,” he said. Asaph said the entire business

community and members of the chamber benefit from the evening that showcases the best and brightest in local business. “We get to recognize businesses working hard to rise above the ordinary, and learn more about who those individuals and businesses are,” he said. “A n d t h e r e a r e a l w a y s surprises.” Each of the 90 nominees was interviewed by a panel of three judges who then make a final and difficult decision about the award winners. However, Asaph noted that individual nominees are recognized at the event as well, given the high calibre of their work and businesses. A s a p h s a i d t h e c h a m b e r’s organizing committee is already geared up and ready to work on next year’s event. “We’re already busy. Nominations are already open for next year’s awards,” he said.

Plecas acclaimed In Abbotsford South Liberals looking for riding to heal and renew

CHRISTINA TOTH CToth@abbotsfordtimes.com

A

fter a week of controversy, Liberals in Abbotsford South acclaimed criminology guru Darryl Plecas as their candidate on Nov. 22, and now look forward to a more positive climate among their ranks. Teamwork, togetherness and renewal were themes that were brought up repeatedly through the night, by local candidates, acting riding association president Ron Gladiuk and Finance Minister Mike de Jong. “I think what I can bring is a strong and determined voice. I will not quit until it’s done, and I will do that in the most respectful of ways. I think you can make that happen . . . by saying, we’re going to that by consensus and we’re going to do it together,” Plecas told those who came out to support him. The anticipated celebration of Plecas’ acclamation was marred on Tuesday when six members of the Abbotsford South riding association quit, saying the Liberal campaign team’s appointment of Plecas had been done without their input and was “undemocratic.” The position was left open after MLA John van Dongen left the Liberals in March. The party maintains Abbotsford city Coun. Moe Gill, the man the board had been backing, signed papers for the Abbotsford-Mission riding, but Gill says he was bullied into it. In an e-mail circulated Friday, provincial campaign manager Mike McDonald said the

resigned board had “stacked Gwen Mahoney won the the riding AGM in May with “Yes, there’s things that contest.

Conservative against Throness, and of public safety. Nobody has crushed crime to undermining his chances in an April 19 by- the degree we have here in British Columbia election in Chilliwack-Hope. New Democrat – that’s not an opinion, that is an absolute

fact,” said Plecas. Eight years ago, the Liberals established the Crime Reduction Secretariat, which led to the “single best track record of any government in the western world in terms of reducing crime . . . a spectacular success,” he said. Results are particularly apparent in Abbotsford, “where the crime reduction rate is literally twice the national average, and more than twice national average in the United States,” he added. His comments emphasized a “can do” attitude to bringing about renewal and improvements to both government and the party. “Yes, there’s things that are wrong in the Liberal Party . . . but let’s fix those things and make the whole damn thing that much better.” Speaking last, de Jong said politics is a “tough business,” and leaders have to make tough decisions for the good of the party. “On a night of celebration, we’re also aware there are members of the family who could be hurting . . . It’s our job to lift those people up, to bring them back in. What links us as free enterprisers is more important than the obstacles . . . that temporarily drive us apart. The goal we share is bigger than any one of us individuals.” De Jong later said later that as finance minister, he wasn’t aware of what was happening with Gill in the riding, but he said he’d be privately reaching out to Gill “in my own quiet way.”

Gill feels personally betrayed: “vote for the party that will be honest with you” LIBERALS, from page A1 That left the Liberal spot open for Gill, he thought. Then Langley MLA and deputy premier Rich Coleman met Gill at his home, just days before the B.C. Liberal Party’s Whistler convention in late October. Coleman tried to persuade Gill to run in Abbotsford-Mission, but Gill refused, saying that he knew the Abbotsford South issues, his supporters were there and that’s where he was staying. Gill said Coleman acquiesced, and asked him to help Plecas in Mission, and Gill said he would. “[The plan was that] I was running in Abbotsford South and [Darryl]

Plecas was running in AbbotsfordMission. He said that in front of my wife,” said Gill, who attended the party convention. Then the Friday after the Whistler event, Gill had a call from regional campaign manager Bruce Burley to meet him at the Cactus Club in Abbotsford at 9 a.m. The meeting went on until noon. “I thought he was coming out to set a date for the nomination meeting. I had already filed the paperwork. Everything was done for Abbotsford South,” said Gill. But instead, Burley informed Gill he had been rejected as the candidate for the riding. “He said he works for two people – Premier Christy Clark and [B.C.

Liberal campaign manager] Mike McDonald, and he was speaking on their behalf,” Gill recounted. “He said ‘you’re not accepted in this riding. You don’t have a riding right now.’ I felt pretty bad, I had been in the party all this time and now they rejected me.” Burley told him he’d have to move to the Abbotsford-Mission riding, where he could be acclaimed as the candidate. All he had to do was sign the papers. Gill again argued his support was in the south riding, and he knew that retiring MLA Randy Hawes had already endorsed Mission Coun. Tony Luck for the Liberal nomination. Another Abbotsford councillor, Simon Gibson, was also considering

a run for the Abbotsford-Mission nomination – he has since declared he is running, and was endorsed by de Jong last week. “I said I wouldn’t have a chance there, because they were way ahead of me [in campaigning]. But it was ‘take it or leave it,’ ” said Gill. “Burley basically bullied me out of the Abbotsford South riding.” Gill signed the acclamation papers, but had no intention of pursing the candidacy in Abbotsford-Mission. Upset at the whole dealing, he refused calls from Burley and the party. “This is wrong what they are doing to me. Why should I be a part of their dog and pony show?” he asked.

“They basically took my rights away from me. How many other ridings have they done this in?” The party also circumvented the riding association, which quit in protest over Gill’s ousting. Gill added that he also feels personally betrayed by Mike de Jong. “I treated him like a brother, but I don’t think I will shake his hand anymore.” While he remains a B.C. Liberal member, Gill isn’t encouraging anyone to vote for the party. “How are we going to trust this government if the deputy premier’s word is not good enough? I tell people, vote for the party that will be honest with you, it doesn’t matter what party it is.”

History’s second place finishes W

hat is it like to be the second smartest person in the world? Let us set the scene. It is England, in the mid-1600s. A decade of strife between Parliament and Crown has left one king headless and his son, Charles II, leading a restored court. London has suffered plague and fire. Science is being born. The Royal Society of London for Improving Natural Knowledge is collecting every clever Englishspeaking person, and exchanging letters with half the savants of the rest of Europe. At the centre of this is one of history’s odd also-rans, Robert Hooke, the society’s official experimenter. Never heard of him? Neither have about 99 per cent of the people around the world. This is despite the fact that he worked on the theory of gravity, discovered the principles of elasticity, drew the rings of Saturn and craters of the moon, invented a key piece of clockwork, correctly theorized how fossils form, speculated about extinction 150 years before it was confirmed, and identified and named biological cells. Why is someone who worked in so many fields - in addition to being a major architect and city planner for London - now a footnote? Because he happened to live and work alongside Sir Isaac Newton. Hooke speculated about grav-

MATTHEW CLAXTON

the painful truth ity and the nature of light at the same time that Newton was formulating his own, more complete and accurate works on the same subjects. What must being Robert Hooke have been like? In his own lifetime he was famous and not exactly considered a dunce. His book Micrographia was a bestselling collection of illustrations and observations made through a microscope, a first glimpse for thousands of people of a world unseen to the human eye. But today everyone has a mental image of Newton, even if it is just the urban legend involving an apple tree. There isn’t even a surviving portrait of Hooke. He is faceless, and if not forgotten, deep in shadow. History is scattered with these half-forgotten people. Alfred Russell Wallace developed the theory of evolution independently of Charles Darwin, and Darwin published his Origin of Species largely because Wallace was about to go public himself. Tenzing Norgay was the second person to reach the summit

of Mount Everest. Buzz Aldrin was the second human on the surface of the Moon. Robert Scott was the second person to reach the South Pole, and is largely remembered for not making it back. St. Jude is the other Judas who palled around with Jesus. It is not for nothing that he is the patron saint of lost causes and is known as the saint of last resort. Some of these forgotten almost-got-there-first folks will be remembered better in the future. Wallace’s profile has been on the upswing, and Tenzing Norgay’s name should become more famous as more people realize that getting to the summit of Everest was a team effort, as Edmund Hilary always said. Hooke himself was a discoverer of the lost. Before him, it was thought that fossils were “sports of nature” that formed spontaneously in rocks. But he saw that they were hints to an unknown past. “There have been many other Species of Creatures in former Ages, of which we can find none at present,” he wrote, “and that ‘tis not unlikely also but that there may be diverse new kinds now, which have not been from the beginning.” Hooke was a new kind, indeed. Let that kind not be forgotten. ■ Visit Matthew Claxton’s blog at tinyurl.com/7mwo2qj.

he Ministry of Children and Family Development said Wednesday, “The B.C. child poverty rate is at its second-lowest level since 1980.” That sounds excellent, doesn’t it? But consider also the information First Call B.C. released not long before the ministry “fact sheet” hit the wire: that B.C.’s child poverty rate is the second highest in Canada. First Call went on to point out that this province had the highest childpoverty rates in all of Canada for the previous eight years. While it’s always fun to watch how government communications professionals can spin bad news into good, the truth is there is some wiggle room in the figures presented by First Call, a child advocacy coalition representing more than 100 B.C. organizations and communities. Its figures are based on the latest Statistics Canada figures, but they apply to 2010, and therefore, do not take into account the increase in the minimum wage to $10.25 per hour in B.C., an increase to some disability payments and new earnings exemptions for those on welfare. The numbers are also pre-tax. So, the B.C. Liberal government could well conclude that this province’s child poverty rate figures are less alarming than First Call is suggesting. But the fact is that a comparatively prosperous province like B.C. has recorded such shameful figures for close to a decade. The time is past due for Premier Christy Clark to consider an addendum to her Families First agenda that puts children first.

Looking for LFLers to do what’s right

Editor, the Times:

Do what is right. I am referring to the letter to the editor regarding “Get past the outfits, and watch a great sports show.” Try to explain to me and others why there is even such a thing as Lingerie Football? If the organization and the women players really are serious about playing real football, then why the need to play in lingerie to entice people to come and watch? Come on now, men don’t play in underwear. Women playing this game should take a stand and wear proper and more protective uniforms and enjoy their game or not play at all. I encourage the women players to do what is right and gain respect personally and as a team. Also, why put a picture of one of the scantily dressed players fully exposed on the front page of your public, family-read local newspaper? Don’t force this kind of news and views on your readers.

council is also lacking, but is that really a surprise based on the current Abbotsford Heat issue? OK, so they deny us five extra firefighters but they see fit to hire one more bylaw officer, at an initial cost of $29,000? So the pay for this person is $82,400? Wow. When did a small, really unimportant job pay so much that I figure it works out to $6,866 a month, or $42.92 an hour working a 40-hour week? I know labourers and others who work 10 times harder and put their lives on the line for half of that. Plus, they went to school for many years paying tens of thousands of dollars in college fees. So, they estimate said worker will collect $26,000 in fines? So this leaves us, the taxpayer, paying this person $56,400 a year and for the first year, tack on the $29,000, thus we are out of pocket $85,400. So much for stretching a penny. I’ll be sending in my resume tout de suite and consider the job filled. Simon Field Abbotsford

How hell is a damnable doctrine Editor, the Times:

People who have been writing in with their views on hell probably should read the comment of Bertrand Russell, in which he states quite accurately that “most of the greatest evils that man has inflicted upon man have come through people feeling quite certain about something which, in fact, was false.” Certainly uninformed comments about the Christian doctrine of hell fall well within the meaning of that quote, as it is a most damnable doctrine in all its ugliness. It’s highly likely that those individuals that have written in so certain about hell only know about it from reading the New Testament. As most of the true believers who know about hell as a certainty, only because of what the New Testament says about that man-created hell-hole, I challenge them to read something like The End of Christianity.

it dissects and repudiates what he calls the “repugnant fantasies of hell,” which are “rationally and morally indefensible.” You think the church is all about hope, faith, and charity? You think it exists because a loving God used his own son as a scapegoat? Bull feathers. No, the doctrine of hell was invented to support the church because its moral authority

is paper thin. True believers want you to think that if you deny hell then you must also deny Christianity. Not true. But thank you, those writers claiming to know what hell is, you make me say ‘thank God’ I’m a secular humanist and know that skepticism is its own virtue which is learned and not inherited. Robert T.

I have a broken heart,” Mossey said during her emotional acceptance. But she continues to support parents and educate kids about drugs “because it’s the right thing to do,” she said.

Enviro study issue continues to smoulder ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes.com

A

n Abbotsford councillor is hoping to dispel concerns a recent environmental study of Sumas Mountain will hinder residential development in the area. Coun. Patricia Ross said the Sumas Mountain Environmental Manage-

ment Study (SMEMS )is not a land use plan but an inventory of the ecological and recreational resources on the mountain and a means to identify eco-sensitive areas. “We not going to tell people that you can no longer continue doing what you’re doing on your property,” said Ross. “The intent of the undertaking

wasn’t to block development, but just to get a better understanding of what’s there so we plan better than we have in the past.” Two property owners were scheduled to appear before council Monday night to outline their beliefs about how the SMEMS will impact the sale or development of their properties in the area.

Tensions around the study arose at a number of Sumas Mountain town hall meetings in late July and October. Many residents were critical of the study because they fear it would be used by the city to impose land use decisions on them. see ENVIRO, page A14

APD has warned about Bakker SADIST, from page A5 under conditions imposed when he was released from jail earlier this year. Bakker is the first person convicted under Canada’s sex-tourism laws for the sexual assault in Asia of seven Cambodian girls, aged 7 to 12. He had also been found guilty of sexually assaulting three adult Vancouver prostitutes. Bakker wasn’t present at his brief pre-trial conference in Vancouver provincial court on Friday, but Crown prosecutor Brendan McCabe said Crown will ask the court to impose restrictions against Bakker under Sec. 810.2 of the Criminal Code of Canada. The so-called peace bond is applied for by the Crown on behalf of an individual called an “informant,” someone who fears “serious personal harm,” — as opposed to a restraining order that is applied for in a civil court by the individual herself. McCabe told court the Crown expected to call two psychologists who are familiar with Bakker, two parole officers and play the video testimony of one female informant, “who fears he [Bakker] is at risk of committing a serious personal offence.” Crown also expects to replay video of Bakker’s sex-

ual assaults against the three B.C. victims. McCabe noted this type of hearing allows hearsay evidence of the informant. The Sec. 810 application hearing is set for Feb. 25-28. A peace bond can order an individual to be of good behaviour, impose restrictions including bans on weapons, drugs and alcohol, order the offender to check in with police and undergo treatment and electronic monitoring. Violating a condition is a criminal offence, punishable by jail. Bakker’s lawyer Derek Birch on said his client couldn’t attend the hearing because he was living in a halfway house in Abbotsford and didn’t have a car. Bakker settled in Abbotsford in August after being released from jail after serving his seven-year term for sexual assaults, to which he pleaded guilty in 2004. Abbotsford police warned the public of his practice of picking up the most vulnerable and “dope-sick” street workers and videotaping himself abusing them. Bakker’s current conditions include an 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. curfew, a ban on contact with sex-trade workers or children and possessing a computer, video or still camera, Internet device or restraining devices.

SALMON seeking

Brothers scour creek beds as DFO funds fall short and local fish returns diminish ROCHELLE BAKER RBaker@abbotsfordtimes

W

hen the Gosling brothers were boys 60-odd years ago, the pair used to scoop salmon out of Stoney Creek in east Abbotsford with their bare hands. Now Doug and Chuck, aged 67 and 65, regularly patrol the banks of their childhood haunt each autumn in hopes of glimpsing any salmon that might have returned to the creek to spawn. “When Chuck and I were little we fished this creek and there were lots of salmon, and trout too,” said Doug Gosling. His brother agreed, noting the decline of salmon returning to Abbotsford’s creeks has been dramatic within their own lifetime. “Less than a hundred fish are coming back every year. That shows these guys are in big trouble,” said Chuck.

Fish loss “bothersome for us old farts” FINDERS, from page A12

YOU CAN LOSE WEIGHT

The men, who belong to Abbotsford’s Stoney Creek Salmon Stalkers, a group affiliated with the Abbotsford Ravine Park Salmon Hatchery, volunteer to monitor returning salmon and promote the preservation and improvement of the species habitat.

“There’s this black box of ocean conditions and nobody really knows what happens out there, but its changing conditions are affecting all species returns.” – Mike Pearson biologist

A rare sunny day in midNovember sees them traversing the creek’s banks and shallows looking for any evidence of coho or chum salmon returning to their birthplace. The men peer into the deep pools and under banks for resting fish and use branches to retrieve and prod any carcasses to determine the species of the fish and if they successfully spawned before perishing.

Smaller ‘jack’ salmon, sexually mature males that return to spawn one year earlier than normal, are also found in Stoney creek. “We also pay attention to the habitat and measure water flows and temperatures in the creek,” said Doug. That day the men counted eight chum and four coho along Stoney Creek. They also monitor McLennan Creek in north Abbotsford, which runs into the Gifford Slough and into the Fraser River. They’ve been pleasantly surprised by the number of fish they’ve been finding there and spotted 31 coho and 13 chum on their most recent foray to the creek. The Ravine Park hatchery on average releases 30,000 fry into Abbotsford salmon streams such as Stoney, Will-

band, Downes and McLennan creeks annually. However, despite some positives, experts are mostly agreed the Fraser River salmon return is flailing. Salmon Inquiry Commissioner Bruce Cohen’s recent report found no single explanation for the two-decade decline in Fraser River sockeye salmon, but recommended a freeze on salmon farming in the Discovery Islands until 2030. Biologist Mike Pearson, a long-time aquatic ecologist consultant in the Fraser Valley, notes Abbotsford’s creeks don’t support sockeye, which see SALMON, page A15

A few surprises to come DONATE, from page A12 On Wednesday, a crew began gutting the house, which will be taken down to the studs and plywood floors, rebuilt inside, and cleaning up outside in preparation for a new gravel driveway. A new roof will eventually be put on and landscaping will take place after the work is finished. The goal is to have the house ready for Christmas. “There’ll be a few surprises,” Walker said, grinning. Kulbir Grewal was one of the firefighters who battled the blaze at the Connors’ house and he returned Wednesday in between night shifts to help out. “We never get to see the people and talk to them and see what kind of effect it’s had,” Grewal said. “The support that the community has given us is unbelievable.” Bill and John were at the house Wednesday to help clean up in preparation for all the work to be done. Both men were surprised at the events of the past week. “He’s the kind of guy who doesn’t believe in stuff getting done for nothing,” John said of his dad. Bill agreed. “No one’s ever really helped me do anything,” he said. “I’ve worked all my life for anything I ever got, you know.” Both men were very grateful their family will have a fresh start. “We won’t be able to thank the people enough,” John said.

Coun. Ross says study doesn’t mean development is looming, it’s “just identifying what’s already there” ENVIRO, from page A10 At the last meeting, some city staff suggested the Sumas Mountain area might be exempt from tree protection bylaws and that the SMEMS might be shelved. Ross said those proposals were precipitous. “Neither of those two things have been debated by council,” said Ross. “That may be the way council goes, but I think that was premature to be said.” The SMEMS takes stock of watercourses, wildlife habitat, parks and species at risk in the area, something all property owners would be required

to do before developing a property anyway, noted Ross. “The intent is actually to provide more certainty for developers and they might have less costs around their studies,” she said. “The thought was it would be a benefit to development because . . . the city has done some of the work already, and they know in advance what a particular property is capable of in terms of development.” The study will also ensure Abbotsford doesn’t end up taking a piecemeal development approach on the mountain, Ross said, adding other communities are undertaking similar bio-diversity inventories.

“In fact, many other communities are ahead of us in that regard,” she said. The study is just one piece of information along with citizen input that will inform the future development of an official community plan for the Sumas Mountain, she said. Regardless, development in the area is a long way off in the area, she stressed. “There are no plans to develop on Sumas Mountain because we don’t have the money to put water and sewer up there, and it’s just not feasible for the city to do that,” said Ross. “The study was just identifying what’s already there.” – FOLLOW US ON TWITTER: @ABBYTIMES

Fresh air and community service come with Salmon Stalkers volunteer opportunities SALMON, from page A13 are lake spawning. But all salmon are facing the same larger problems including stressors in fresh and salt water habitats and a changing climate and ocean. Urbanization and agriculture are the primary culprits for the decline of viable salmon habitat within the Fraser Valley, but no one can entirely be sure what’s going on in the Pacific, he said. “There’s this black box of ocean conditions and nobody really knows what happens out there, but its changing conditions are affecting all species returns,” said Pearson. However, people can still positively impact salmon habitat in local creeks. Maintaining riparian vegetation along streams and creeks better guarantees good feeding, proper water temperatures

and inhibits invasive grasses that can deplete oxygen levels in the water. Other useful measures would include governments promoting urban development that mitigates stormwater flows and limits the amount of fertilizer and other toxins flowing into streams. Pearson says that he’s not “anti-development” but thinks the best practices to protect fish habitat can improve. The biologist also points to a consistent lack of funding and the recent cuts by the federal government to the Department of Fisheries and Oceans as a concern to maintaining salmon habitat. In the past, DFO officers would be assigned to walk streams to monitor fish returns. Now DFO relies heavily on volunteer stream keeper groups to keep the count.

The groups provide an invaluable educational service in their communities but can’t guarantee consistent data year after year, said Pearson. The Gosling brothers, avid fishermen, also want to see moves that would help salmon thrive. The men see their conservation work as a means to give back to their community and hopefully future generations. “I hate to see that young people might not get to see salmon,” said Doug. “When we see the fish populations we’re seeing now, it’s a bit bothersome for us old farts.” ■ Anyone interested in joining the Stoney Creek Stalkers or getting

Abbotsford’s Kumon Math and Reading Centre students proudly show ribbons marking their academic accomplishments. Kumon’s kids celebrated with bowling and donated five huge boxes of food to the Abbotsford Food Bank.

Kumon recognizes good work, gives back to the community

T

he Abbotsford Kumon Math and Reading Centre (Trethewey Street location) honoured students at its annual bowling/awards event held at Galaxy Bowl on Nov. 17. Students were recognized for their academic and personal achievements throughout the year. The entire student body, parents, and centre staff were invited to help celebrate the success of Abbotsford Kumon’s exemplary students. Shirley Tam, director of Abbotsford Kumon, believes in honouring students not only for reaching the advanced student honour roll and studying challenging material but also for dedication to daily Kumon practice.

Following the tradition of previous years, students were asked to give back to the community by contributing to the food drive to benefit the local food bank. Thanks to the generosity of students and their families, five huge boxes of food items were collected for the Abbotsford Food Bank. This year’s event was an extra special celebration for Abbotsford Kumon Math and Reading Centre as it celebrated its 20-year anniversary! ■ For more information on Abbotsford Kumon Math and Reading Centre, call 604-855-7896 or visit the website at www. kumonabbotsfordclearbrook.com.

Brust breaks record

Heat goalie extends scoreless streak to 268 minutes

JEAN KONDA-WITTE JKonda-Witte@abbotsfordtimes.com

A

bbotsford Heat goalie Barry Brust set an American Hockey League record Saturday, extending his scoreless streak to 268 minutes, 17 seconds before allowing a secondperiod power play goal by the San Antonio Rampage in Texas on Saturday. The netminder broke the record of 249:51 established by Johnny Bower of the Cleveland Barons in 1957. Brust set the mark at 18:11 of the first period and held the Rampage scoreless until 16:36 of the second period. It was the second goal allowed by Brust this season. He gave up another 1:35 later in what became a 3-2 shootout win for the Heat. “Barry’s shutout streak was really a hot issue right after the two Lake Erie games (Nov. 13-14),” said coach Troy Ward. Since being scored on by Zack Kassian of the Chicago Wolves at 8:19 into the first period on Oct. 20, Brust won that game 4-1, then shut out the Toronto Marlies on Nov. 1 (3-0). He posted back-to-back, 29-save shutouts against the Lake Erie Monsters on Nov. 13 and 14 (3-0 and 2-0). “As far as the streak goes, goals against is a team stat and I feel like it’s been a nice little feather in our cap, showing how good we’ve been defensively as a group so far,” said Brust. He now leads the AHL in save percentage (.978) and has allowed just three goals on 134 shots. He has a

Abbotsford Heat goalie Barry Brust broke the scoreless record set by Johnny Bower back in 1957. Brust went 268:17 without being scored upon. The streak later came to an end in the second period in San Antonio on Saturday. 5-0-0 record with a goals against average of just 0.59. The Heat are the toughest team to score on in the AHL, averaging just 1.71 goals against per game. The 29-year-old, Brust, who was born in Manitoba but played his minor hockey in Kelowna, has had a well-travelled career. He’s played for eight teams since 2004, including one season with Straubing of the German league in 2011-12. He won the Calder Cup

with Binghamton in 2011 and played 64 ECHL games. He has 11 NHL games to his credit, all with the Los Angeles Kings during the 2006-07 season. Brust went 2-4-1 with a 3.70 goals-against average and .878 save percentage. He left the Kings and spent the next three seasons with the Houston Aeros, the AHL affiliate of the Minnesota Wild. The netminder is hopeful he’ll get another chance in the NHL.

“I’d like to think so,” Brust told Dave Lozo of NHL.com. “Obviously some things have to break the right way. I think being in the American Hockey League, you’re always a break or two away. “You always want to hold out hope and dream, and all I can do is take care of the way I play. I’ve done a lot since the time I was in the NHL. I’d like to think I can play there [again)]someday.” – WITH FILES FROM THE PROVINCE

Roadrunners off to Double-A final T

Heat win 2, lose 1 on road

he Mission Roadrunners pulled out a nailbiter, beating Ballenas 28-27 in Double-A semifinal action Saturday at UBC. With 47 seconds remaining, and No. 4-ranked Ballenas having marched 63 yards down field to score a touchdown and pull within a point of the No. 2-ranked, defending B.C. champion Mission Roadrunners at 28-27, the Ballenas coach elected to go for two points and a win, instead of kicking a single and playing for overtime. It didn’t work, the score held and now Mission is off to the Double-A varsity football final for the third straight year. The game was not without plenty of drama as the Roadrunners did some gambling of their own and failed on the play that set up Ballenas’ late, dramatic drive. Mission elected to run a shot pass play on fourth down but couldn’t convert, allowing Ballenas to take over at its own 37 with 2:24 remaining, trailing 28-21. “I felt I wanted to keep the ball in our playmakers’ hands, and let them end the game,” Mission

The Heat (12-2-2-2) closed their five-game road trip having earned seven of a possible 10 points, and remain in top spot in the AHL with 28 points through 18 games. Brett Olson and Joe Piskula scored in regulation, but Jason Zucker ended things just five seconds into OT for the Aeros. On Saturday the Heat beat San Antonio 3-2. Abbotsford tied the game in the dying seconds and beat the Rampage in a shootout, earning their second win in as many nights in Texas. Brett Olson tied the game with just 13.7 seconds remaining and Carter Bancks scored in the eleventh round to end the shootout and give the Heat a league-leading 12th win. On Friday the Heat beat the Texas Stars 1-0 in OT, with a goal by Chris Breen 10 seconds into the extra frame. The Heat will continue their battle for top spot in the AHL this weekend as they host the Hamilton Bulldogs (AHL affiliate of the Montreal Canadiens) on Friday and Saturday night. Friday night is the Heat’s second ‘Legends of Hockey’ night as Montreal Canadiens great and inducted member of the Hockey Hall of Fame Yvan Cournoyer is honoured. Cournoyer will be signing autographs for fans and sharing tales of his 10 Stanley Cup championships. Saturday is the annual Pucks N’ Paws game, as fans are invited to bring dogs to the game.

Mouat loses semifinal The season is over for the W.J. Mouat Hawks as they went down to defeat 41-15 to the Mt.

he Eugene Reimer Ravens beat the Abby Middle School Huskies 16-6 in the Grade 8 Double-A semifinal Wednesday at Mouat Field. The Ravens opened the scoring with a seven-yard Dylan Manocha touchdown run. Bobby Narang ran in a crucial three-yard two-point conversion. The Ravens defence held strong in the second half, keeping the talented Abby quarterback John Madigan in check. The Ravens scored on the last play of the half when Manocha ran in on a seven-yard reverse. The Ravens held on for most of the third quarter until Abby’s Samuel Uko scampered for an impressive 60-yard TD. The Ravens then had a timely 43-yard run by Manocha. Husky’s Tanner Marquardt, Ethan Lowney and the defence held strong as they forced the Ravens to fumble on the one-yard line. The Ravens defence then answered with a safety after an Abby fumble in the endzone making the score 16-6. Manocha had 178 yards on 27 carries for two TDs, Narang ran for 49 yards on 10 carries. Josh Sahota had 10 tackles and a sack on defence for the Ravens. The Ravens now advance to the Double-A final against Stafford on Thursday at Burnaby Lakes Sports Complex at 4 p.m.
