Horse wrangled from river

T

he local horse community joined forces with the RCMP to help rescue a horse that fell into the Vedder River Tuesday afternoon. Six-year-old Phoenix, along with her rider, a woman named Leah, had been trotting alongside the river near Hopedale Road Tuesday

Rescue efforts save horse swept down Vedder

afternoon when the horse became spooked and both fell into the river. Leah managed to climb to shore, but Phoenix began drifting down the river and past Yarrow. That’s when the Chilliwack horse community sprang into action. Among those searching for Phoe-

nix was Spencer Froese, 24. He was at work when his boss, Ron Pilat, sped off after hearing his neighbour’s horse had fallen into the Vedder. Froese and his wife, Chelsea, followed on their bikes and began to scan the river. At Keith Wilson Road, Froese hopped on a boat that was

launched in an effort to find and rescue the horse. As the boat headed up stream in search of Phoenix, an RCMP vessel pulled up alongside and recruited Froese. “They said, ‘well, we better take one of you who knows horses,’”

mudslide buried Highway 1 east of Chilliwack with up to 25 feet of mud, closed the road indefinitely and stalled a CN train Wednesday morning. While one car was caught up in the slide, its occupants were found safe and uninjured. It was unclear if any other vehicles were caught in the slide. “We walked the area as best we could to determine if there were any further vehicles under the slide, but we were unable to locate any,” said RCMP spokesperson Sgt. EB IRST Peter Thiessen. First reported on No witnesses chilliwacktimes.com reported seeing any other cars being swept up in the slide and early reports that homes were affected proved to be false. The slide was pegged at 25 feet deep and 200 feet long. Heavy equipment was moved to the scene and Ministry of Highway engineers and geological technicians inspected the slide from the air Wednesday afternoon. Work was set to begin soon after. “Next heavy equipment will be starting to move the debris to determine if any vehicles or individuals are trapped under the slide,” said Thiessen.

The slide occurred about 100 metres from the Herrling Island exit. It originally affected eastbound traffic but also crossed to the westbound lane. In the Fraser Valley, traffic was diverted “indefinitely” along Highway 7 north of the Fraser River, said Ministry of Transportation spokesman, Jeff Knight. Traffic was soon moving slower than the mud that halted it. By 12:30 p.m., traffic along Highway 1 east of Vancouver was backed up to 200th Street in Langley. At 2:30 p.m., Ron Genaille tweeted: “Hard to believe I left for Chilliwack at 12:30. Parked on highway in traffic outside Agassiz. #mudslideblues.” Kelli Svendsen, a media contact with the Canadian National Railway, said a CN train ran into the mudslide at around 11 a.m. About 20 cars were caught up in the slide “There were no injuries, there was no derailment,” Svendsen said. “Our officers are en route.” Svendsen said the train was carrying containers of merchandise to the Delta port when it hit the slide. The slide has blocked the rail line delaying train traffic. - with files from Postmedia

Chilliwack man sentenced to life for murder in Lytton

Bus to Walmart tops priority list BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

C

hilliwack transit users want more frequency on fewer routes. But most of all they just want a bus to go to Walmart. That’s part of what was learned during the first public input phase of the 25-year BC Transit Fraser Valley Future Plan, according to senior urban transportation planner Michelle Orfield. “This is what we heard from the public was Walmart, Walmart, Walmart,” Orfield told Chilliwack city council at last week’s meeting. Orfield was providing council with an update on the plan, which is based in part on feedback received when BC Transit’s 40foot public consultation bus stopped in Chilliwack, Agassiz and Hope in April and May. More than 150 people visited the bus providing approximately 100 comments through interactive displays. Another 200 people commented online. There were also com-

ments from 200 students and staff members from the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV ) in an online survey. Orfield said the number one comment from Chilliwack residents was for a way to connect the city with Abbotsford. The second priority was for improved local service. Currently, buses pass most routes hourly but the proposed option “overwhelmingly” chosen by those who provided feedback would see regular 30-minute service in addition to buses as frequent as every 15 minutes on the Yale/Vedder corridor at certain times of day. To get to this level of frequency it would mean reducing the number of routes from 10 to four. “It would provide service like Chilliwack has never seen before—15-minute service,” Orfield said. The public was provided with two options for improved service and Mayor Sharon Gaetz asked what the main difference between the two was. Orfield said the plan most people wan-

Mayor Sharon Gaetz ted, included bidirectional service along Eagle Landing Parkway to Walmart. Gaetz told Orfield that UFV students had delivered 5,000 signatures on a petition to the transportation committee at the Fraser Valley Regional District to ask for service between Chilliwack and Abbotsford, something that was not reflected in the BC Transit plan. “It sounds as if Abbotsford has been a little bit lukewarm because they want to focus on local priorities,” Gaetz said. “But I would really like to see what the cost would be if we could share that service.” Orfield told council the next step for the 25-year plan was for her to write the plan that will outline implementation strategies.

Chilliwack-area man was sentenced Wednesday in Kamloops Supreme Court to life in prison with no chance of parole for 12 years for the 2008 stabbing death of a man near Lytton. In January, Justice Richard Blair found Cory Peter Bird guilty of second-degree murder of Albert James Michell in August of 2008. Blair found that Bird stabbed Michell 73 times with three separate blades and left him for dead. An alcoholic, Bird was evicted from his Chilliwack-area home in July of 2008 because of his drinking. He duly hitchhiked into the interior and, after spending a week working in Kamloops, stayed at Michell’s home south of Lytton for several days. What prompted the stabbing has never been made clear, but Bird hitchhiked back to Lytton on Aug. 14 with Michell’s cousin, who noticed his passenger had a fresh cut on his finger. Michell’s body was found three days later.

Bird was arrested in Montreal following a standoff at a Canada Post outlet. One of the arresting officers heard Bird say “I killed a man in B.C., I don’t want to go to prison.Why didn’t you shoot me. I killed a man with a knife.” While the defence didn’t dispute that Bird had stabbed Michell to death, they argued that Michell was too drunk to form the intent necessary to commit murder. The justice disagreed, however, and delivered his guilty verdict in January. A seconddegree murder conviction carries an automatic life sentence. The justice determines the length of time until the offender is eligible for parole with a minimum ineligibility period of 10 years. Crown counsel suggested a range of between 12 and 14 years while the defence called for the minimum 10 years without parole. Justice Blair returned to the bench on Monday to sentence Bird to spend 12 years in prison before being allowed to appear before a parole board.

90% of teachers vote for job action

C

hilliwack teachers could take up a province-wide,“teach-only” campaign come September if no progress is made in contract talks between the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA) and the BC Teachers’ Federation in August. Ninety per cent of B.C. teachers who cast ballots in a strike vote Tuesday, voted in favour of the job action.

If no progress is made in negotiations, teachers will continue teaching but stop doing administrative work. “This initial job action is designed to put pressure on the employer and the government, but to maintain regular classroom instruction for students and ongoing communication with parents,” said Chilliwack Teachers’ Association president Katharin Midzain .

10% IF HST REMAINS The Federal government has made it the law to reduce the HST in BC. The HST will drop from the current 12% to 10% in two stages -- if BC doesn’t go back to the 12% GST/PST. The BC Government asked Ottawa to reduce the HST to reduce the cost to families, and now it is law. 10% HST will save the average BC family $120 per year compared to going back to the higher 12% GST/PST. Going back to the 12% GST/PST will also cost BC taxpayers an extra $35 million to hire 300 provincial tax collectors to set up a separate provincial sales tax system in addition to the GST. An independent report found going back to the 12% GST/PST would negatively impact the provincial budget by almost $3 billion in just 2 years*. This would likely result in increased deficits and/or reduced funding for government services. HST OR PST/GST - It’s Your Decision *The Independent Panel’s Report - can be found at www.hstinbc.ca

Timely pointers on lasso came in handy HORSE, from page 1 Froese told the Times on Wednesday. The Mounties, along with Froese, continued up stream but were unable to immediately locate the horse. “We knew the horse had to be in that area or had sunk to the bottom,” said Froese. With the help of people alongshore, Froese and the officers eventually located Phoenix in some bushes. Spooked, she swam into the river, where Froese hoped to grab it by the halter—a horse’s headgear. But then the horse began heading back towards the bushes. “She was heading for shore again, and I thought ‘I can’t let that happen,’” said Froese. “If she gets in that bush, we’ll

never get her out again.’” It was time for Froese to grab his lasso. Fortunately, Froese had practised for just this situation. Or at least this type of situation minus the water, the current, and the boat. “The day before I just got some pointers on lassos, so

here it comes into use right away,” he said. One toss is all it took for Froese to snag the horse. From there, it was a matter of bringing Phoenix alongside the boat and maneuvering both the horse and the vessel to a point where they could get to shore.

It wasn’t easy, what with obstacles in the river, a cranky and unsure animal, and a whirring propeller at the back of the boat. “We finally got her to the side, but then she was going too far back and we didn’t want her to hit the props,” said Froese But finally, the shore was in reach; a rope was thrown and caught; Phoenix was able to regain its footing; and Froese mounted the rescued animal as it finally found dry land. Despite the chilly water, Froese said the horse seemed in good health. And a day later, Froese was considering getting involved in future rescues. “I sure enjoyed the search and rescue kind of thing,” he said. I might have to look into doing that more.

Water Safety

This past month, one of my patients drowned in the Fraser River. What made the situation so sad is that the owner loved and cared for his dog like no other. It was a swimming hole that they had been to many times before. His dog was young and fit and a great swimmer. On the surface the water was calm but the undercurrent was too much for the dog to deal with. Accurate statistics on dog drowning in Canada are unavailable. Although largely unreported, accidental drowning of a pet is very common. With more people having pools, including their pets in family vacations and trips to the lake, drowning fatalities are becoming more frequent. So what can you do to prevent your pet from drowning? 1. Stay ALERT

Contrary to popular belief, not all dogs enjoy swimming or can swim particularly well. If it seems like your dog does not want to swim, it is important not to force him. If your dog falls in and appears to be struggling, offer a net or an object to help rescue him. Jumping in after him is seldom a good idea. Never assume your dog will steer clear of the pool because it ‘hates water’. Those are the very ones who fall in accidentally. 2. Think proactively

If you have a pool you may want to have a “scamper ramp” installed in the pool to help your pet exit the water without struggling. It is important to teach your dog where the pool steps are located. A floating pool alarm device is a good investment as well. These will float in your pool and set off an alarm if the surface of the pool is disturbed. Similarly, “safety turtles” are available. This devise is placed on your dog’s collar. If your dog falls in the water, it will send off an alarm alerting you to the danger. If your pet accompanies you on your boat, you may want to think of placing a life jacket on them. Canine flotation devices are designed to keep your pet afloat in the water. These vests are adjustable and designed to fit around your pet’s chest.

TEEN GRIEF SUPPORT GROUP

3. Be aware of changing conditions.

Our local rivers are raging at this time. My own dog loves to jump and play in the Vedder River but she is not smart enough to realize the danger at this time of the year so we just stay on the trail for now. My heart still breaks when I think of this drowning. His passing is not in vain however, I know I have become more aware of the danger of pets and water. I will do my part to make sure my clients become more aware as well.

The Chilliwack Hospice Society is pleased to offer an eight week grief support group for teens who have experienced the loss of a family member or friend through death; or who currently have a friend or family member dying. The group will meet weekly at the Chilliwack Hospice Society’s “Rotary Hospice Centre” 45360 Hodgins Avenue, date and time to be announced.

◗ Opinion

Too complicated to recall We Canadians don’t know us. That is, we don’t know who we are. Or more precisely, we don’t know who we were. A little while ago, pollsters made the shocking discovery that, while as many as nine out of ten Americans know that their first president was George Washington, barely half of all Canadians know that our first prime minister was John A. Macdonald… or more correctly, The Right Honourable Sir John A. Macdonald—which might be part of the problem, since the Americans only have a straightforward name to remember, we’ve got an initial, one of those Mac vs. Mc situations, and that whole “Right Honourable” stuff: two words that aren’t readily associated in the public mind with politicians today. It seems a far greater proportion of Americans understand the importance of 1776 in their history, than Canadians understand 1867. But to be fair, Americans had their 1776 Declaration of Independence – signed by some of the greatest Americans who ever lived – pounded into their consciousness with the weight of tens of thousands of deaths during one of the world’s most famous revolutionary wars, the American Revolution, popularly referred to as the War of Independence – which, let’s be fair, folks, also gives them the unfair advantage of doubling up on “independence” and creat-

BOB GROENEVELD

Be Our Guest ing repetition which we all know enhances memory. By contrast, as Canadians, we gained our independence with the peaceful acquisition of a handful of British signatures—signatures of people none of us has ever met, and most of whom our own ancestors never had a compulsion to name streets after. And what was the name of our Declaration of Independence? The British North America Act of 1867. It doesn’t have “Canada” in the official title. Not only that, but it never had a war to back it up (although a couple of decades earlier there had been a few skirmishes in Upper and Lower Canada—slightly worse than the Canucks-Bruins riot in Vancouver earlier this month), and it doesn’t even have the word “independence” in it. And no wonder, either. Because it never really made us independent. It let us elect our own parliament which could pass legislation to govern our own affairs… AFTER said legislation was approved by the parliament in Britain… and

AFTER it received royal assent. That’s “independence”? Uhmmm… not by the American definition, I’ll bet. We actually gained our independence incrementally—mostly through the actions of bull-headed prime ministers who did nasty things to peeve our British masters—like refusing to accept British declarations of war as binding on Canadian troops until ratified by Canada’s own parliament. PM William Lyon MacKenzie King even got the whole British Commonwealth in on it. All through our history, prime ministers bugged the British so much that, when PM Pierre Elliot Trudeau asked to let us keep the BNA Act in our own office safe, they gladly handed it over—nearly 120 years after it had been signed to grant us our “independence.” It’s our version of the Declaration of Independence… and we didn’t even get to see it before then! Compared to the United States, where historical facts are mostly about stomping anyone who disagrees, Canada is a very complicated country with a very complicated history. And we’re supposed to remember stuff like when the BNA Act was signed? It was on Canada Day. Do we really need to know more than that? ◗ Bob Groeneveld is editor of the Langley Advance.

No one likes a postal strike. Sure, fewer flyers pile up in your mail box. But for those who don’t pay their bills online, or who are waiting for a cheque to arrive, it’s no fun at all. Many small businesses have had to switch to private couriers or forgo deliveries for the past week. Provincial governments have scrambled to get aid money out. It’s been inconvenient. Well, it was supposed to be. Inconvenience is the essence of a strike. It’s supposed to hurt the employer’s pocketbook. Except in this case, the employer happens to be the federal government. Apparently, the new Conservative government wasn’t in the mood to give an inch. They bashed the union relentlessly—even though it was Canada Post that locked out its employees. The full work stoppage only began once that happened. The union itself staged only rotating strikes and was still delivering mail, albeit slower than usual. But the Tories saved their worst attacks on the union for the small print of their back to work bill. Side issues will be decided by “final offer arbitration,” in which the arbitrator will have to pick either the union position or the employer’s. No in between, no Solomonic wisdom needed here. Then there’s the salary included in the legislation. Canada Post workers will get pay raises—but less than the most recent offer from the corporation itself. This is staggeringly mean-spirited. It seems that a government looking to trim the budget by any means necessary decided to punish postal workers for exercising their right to strike. So this sets a nasty precedent for the next four years. If you work in an industry the government would rather not see shut down—anything that bugs enough voters, essentially—you’d better hope you don’t need to strike. You won’t get a good deal.

Letters

Show some compassion for those who need weed Editor: I just read about the closure of the Compassion Club in the Chilliwack Times and the comments made by the mayor. In a city with such a significant property crime rate, I would have thought that she would welcome a business such as this. I think we all know that people who require medical marijuana and the club owners are not the ones responsible for property crime. The unfortunate thing is that, without access to prescribed medication through compassion clubs, patients are forced to seek it from the same criminals who sell the drugs that supplies the addicts responsible for the property crime, further feeding the criminal element. Hopefully the community will soon realize this and allow them to reopen. Susan Davenport Vernon

Elections BC, not Elections Canada Editor: In a letter to the editor dated June 28 in the Chilliwack Times entitled “Simply more deception” the writer says, “As I examined it I was puzzled by the tiny B.C. logo in the right hand top corner of the front page, next to the tip of the

pencil and then the “Important Notice to B.C. Voters from Elections Canada” in bold white print on black background, on the back page.” The title of the brochure should reference Elections BC rather than Elections Canada. Elections Canada has no role in the BC HST referendum. John Enright manager, media relations Elections Canada

Martin offers up no riot solutions Editor: My goodness, John Martin who writes under the Crime Matters banner in the Chilliwack Times, certainly doesn’t like Christy Clark, nor the Liberal Party of Canada, nor the BC Liberal Party, does he? But nothing new there.

What is especially sad about his column “No shortage of post-riot phoniness (Times, June 28)” is that not once does this criminologist at the University of the Fraser Valley offer up any ideas or suggestions of how the issue of the riot be dealt with. Nothing, nada, zilch. Just a carping diatribe about Liberals of both provincial and federal stripes, and the fact that he doesn’t like Christy Clark wearing a Canuck’s jersey. Maybe he thinks all the rioters were closet Liberals as well. Pity that this criminologist/columnist couldn’t offer anything better. Andy Fraser Chilliwack

Easy to go blaming the ‘system’ Editor: I got sick to the gut when I read

the story about a handicapped girl who spent many days alone with the dead body of her mother, who probably committed suicide after being cut off from welfare—without a follow up—on top of her already overloaded plate. The headline states the system failed girl.The system? The system did not fail this handicapped girl and her troubled mother; the people involved in it did not do the jobs for which they where hired, mandated and well paid. A system is a faceless, unidentifiable and therefore blameless thing. A system cannot be held to account. A system can not be made to improve and a system cannot be given its walking papers with no recommendation to a possible future employer. A system is the passive nonentity behind which the gutless can and do hide. The verbal bureaucratic diarrhea must stop. Had a husband or parent, or taxpayer perpetrated this (in my mind) crime against humanity, the RCMP would investigate, and rightfully bring serious charges. A caution to the honourable minister, make sure the CYA policy is easily accessible, some people riot over a hockygame. As I write this letter with a “mob mentality,” my weapon will be the pen. Ben de Groot Agassiz

Campbell doesn’t pass the stink test Editor: Considering that high commissioner position, I believe, it would be a position filled by one with a reputation beyond reproach. Although Mr. Campbell may have accomplished a few things while in long standing on the public purse, that doesn’t take into account a criminal record or the perception of shady dealing in the B.C. Rail affair. Our government receives criticism constantly for mirroring the United States; however, had this appointment been made in the United States, Campbell would not have made it passed the first day of senate scrutiny. In my opinion, Campbell has been generously paid for his support of the HST and selling off another portion of B.C. Rick Macleod Chilliwack

With two successful high-level computer competitions behind him, Evans now has his sights set on the four-year computer information systems program at UFV. He hasn’t decided whether he wants to own his own business after that or work as a programmer for a big company, but, whatever his future holds, his win at Skills Canada will look good on paper, according to Murtha. “It’s a huge addition to his resume because basically it’s saying he’s the number one in Canada at these tasks and skills and knowledge,” said Murtha. “When people look at that, they know that they’re getting somebody that’s really highly qualified.”

fter 16 hours of repairing, installing, configuring and networking, Jordan Evans was the last man standing in his event at the Canada Skills competition in Quebec City earlier this month. The Sardis secondary student earned the right to wave the B.C. flag from the top of the podium after winning gold in IT Network Systems Administration. “It was pretty exhilarating,” he said of the awards ceremony. “When they’re announcing your competition, it’s the most stressful feeling ever.” Evans was less nervous during the two days of competition, and only configuring a virtual private network (VPN) on Windows 7 gave him a momentary pause. “I’d never done that before, so I just had to figure it out,” he said. Despite Evans’s confidence, however, his Sardis computer tech teacher John Murtha said this year’s battle for top spot was closer than usual. “It was extremely close,” he said. “This year it got down to the last half of the second day before they could separate who was first, second and third.” Evans’s networking skills were what eventually set him apart. He attributes his success to the training he’s received from Murtha since he started taking his classes four years ago. “He pushes really hard especially when you get to the high levels of his courses,” said Evans. Murtha’s tutelage also helped Evans and fellow Sardis student Corey Jackson take top spot in Canada and 20th in all of North

IS THERE A “RIGHT TO DRIVE”?

Better reading at Bernard

T

he reading selection at Bernard elementary just got a whole lot better. An essay put together by a group of the school’s students (Maeghan Bergeron, Alexa Wills, Tina Mjekiqi, Jasper Stack, Harrison Woligrocky, Morgan Gilfillan, Tessa Lewis and Meagen Malanowich) captured the hearts of The Book Man judges in this year’s Win 1,000 Books contest. The books were delivered to the school’s library recently. A secondary prize of 500 books was also delivered to Ecole La Verendye for a runnerup essay penned by Zakariya Enneddam. “Connecting young readers with books is something that we are passionate about at The Book Man,” said bookstore co-owner

Amber Short. “Having access to books is a necessity in developing strong literacy skills, and helping make that happen is exciting and very rewarding.” And junior bookworms whose schools didn’t win need not despair. Readers ages 12 and under can earn their own free books through The Book Man’s Kids Club. All they have to do is sign up for a membership in-store, complete five book reports, and a free kids’ book is theirs. They also receive a book on their birthday and get their photo taken with bookstore cat, Nietzsche, when they collect their first free book. - Staff

1,000-book winning essay Books are important! They are like movies playing in our minds. Our old principal, Mrs. Hall, always used to say,“Reading feeds your brain!” Books help you grow as a person. Books help kids learn new things and they give you the knowledge to create new things. Books make our brains think. The more kids read, the easier it is to succeed in life. Our school has a program called Bronco Buddies where all of the big kids go with little kids and they read together. Imagine how much more reading we could do with the little kids if

we had 1,000 more books. Books are like the concrete that holds a school together. Books are probably the most important thing at Bernard elementary besides the students.

for the ban. Writing in The New York Time, she said, “In Saudi Arabia … anxiety [over women’s unrestrained mobility] is acute: the streets — and the right to enter and leave them at will — belong to men. A woman who trespasses is either regarded as a sinful “street-walker” or expected to cover herself in her abaya, a Barrister & Solicitor portable house. …The Saudi regime, like the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Taliban in Afghanistan, the military junta in Sudan and the Islamic Salvation Front in Algeria, … expects women to remain in their “proper place.” ...[This] is about dominating, excluding and subordinating women. It is about barring them from political activities…. It is about denying women the basic human right to move about freely.” In mid-May 2011, a Saudi mother, Najla al-Hariri, who was an experienced motorist having driven in Egypt and Lebanon, defied the ban by driving non-stop for four days in the streets of Jeddah “to defend her belief that Saudi women should be allowed to drive.” She ridiculed the notion that in being driven around by their male relatives or hired drivers, Saudi women are treated “like queens.” “This is a big lie,” she said. “We are always at their mercy to give us a lift.” Soon thereafter, Manal al-Sharif, who posted a video of herself driving around Al Khobar was jailed for nine days. Since then, an internet-based campaign for a nationwide protest drive that started on June 17th has rallied a small number of Saudi women to follow their examples.

Road Rules ‘mission’ throughout its continuous weekly publication since June 2003 in community newspapers throughout the lower mainland of Vancouver and online at www.roadrules.ca is to inform our readers about and assist them with better understanding of local road safety issues. We hope that all road Cedric Hughes users who are better informed about the myriad road safety issues they must confront everyday will also be safer road users. Despite our local focus, we have come to appreciate the degree to which road safety is a many tentacled subject with a global reach. Local focus inevitably has lead to comparison, exploration, and analysis of how similar issues are dealt with elsewhere — in the rest of Canada and the US, and in the rest of the motorized and ‘becoming-motorized’ world. This has secured www.RoadRules.ca a dedicated worldwide readership. Recently a story about a unique driving rule in Saudi Arabia has reminded us about the intrinsic significance of mobility freedom in modern life. Saudi Arabia has the distinction of being the only country in the world that bans women from driving. The ban is not a written law but rather a religious edict about an inevitable spread of temptation, vice, and corruption if women went about on their own encountering male strangers, as driving would enable them to do. Farzaneh Milani, chairwoman of the Department of Middle Eastern and South Asian Languages and Cultures at the University of Virginia disputes this characterization of the underlying reason

tudents at Watson elementary have taken the 60 Minute Kids’ Club Challenge “to the next level,” according to the program’s creator, Matt Young. The third phase of the new 60-day health and fitness challenge wrapped up last month, and Watson finished miles ahead of the competition, which included 15 schools from B.C., Ontario and Nova Scotia. “They beat other schools by 2 0 , 0 0 0 p o i n t s,” s a i d Young, a Vancouver-based fitness advocate and founder of Innovative Fitness. The 60 Minute Kids’ Club encourages kids from kindergarten to Grade 6 to get active, eat right and get enough sleep. At Watson, 99 per cent of the student body signed up for the challenge and, for three months, tracked their progress at 60minkidsclub. com, a kid-friendly website where they earned points for exercising, eating a healthy breakfast, drinking water and getting enough sleep.

“It’s a g re a t v e h i c l e,” said Watson vice-principal Nathan Ngieng, who headed up the initiative at the school. “It really emphasizes the importance of overall physical and emotional health for kids, and it builds that communication between parents and their children that this is important.” Young was at Watson elementary Wednesday to recognize the school’s top 10 participants and to present them with a trophy for the school’s record-breaking performance. He attributes the school’s high level of participation to Ngieng, who also brought the challenge to Greendale elementary when he was a vice-principal there last year. “It takes a champion in the school to make it really fly,” said Young. “He’s been amazing.”

Chilliwack Huskers president Geoff Sache and vice-president Teri Taman are hope more community involvement will bring out the fans to cheer on the the junior football franchise.

Huskers feeling optimistic about getting more fans to bond with local football team

BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

A

s the Chilliwack Huskers prepare to open their July training camp in preparation for the coming British Columbia Football Conference season, the memories of last year’s winless season hangs over the club. It’s hard not to get the sense that club president Geoff Sache and the rest of those affiliated with the Chilliwack Huskers are tired of explaining last year’s winless record. Last year’s squad was exceptionally young and was always going to struggle, the message goes. And optimism is now the order of the day: both Sache and head coach Luke Acheson believe that this year’s more-experienced Huskers can and will compete. Doing so should go a ways to bringing back fans to Exhibition Field. Last year attendance was not good and winning should help. But if the Huskers—which operates as a non-profit dependent on volunteers—hope to thrive and compete with the Okanagan Sun and Vancouver Island Raiders, they have to do more than play well in their five home games each year. Sache and vice-president of public relations Teri Taman explain that the team will have to create a bond with the community that transcends the gridiron. “We want a strong bond with the community,” said Taman. “By the end of the year we would really like the community to be behind us and supporting us and wanting to come out and looking forward to us coming back next year.” Achieving that goal, said Sache, requires “a combination of being more active in the community and putting a better product on the field.” The key, they both say, will be integrating the players into the community. In 2009, Taman pledged to volunteer her services as a sports therapist for one practice a week and for games. She was hesitant, at first. “I don’t have kids. I don’t want kids. I don’t particularly like kids, so I really wasn’t sure . .

. how this was going to work out,” she said. But the players quickly won her over and now she’s, well, doing an interview with the Times about the squad. “Athletes are different than regular kids.” The discipline problems that dogged the team several years ago are long gone, and Taman says the team is now stocked with young men eager to earn a ticket to university. “These kids have motivation, they want to do things, they want to learn,” she said. “What I love most about the players is how genuine and how friendly they were.” Sache, referring to head coach Luke Acheson’s recruiting efforts, added: “he’s recruited good ball players, but he’s recruited good kids as well.” That is the message Taman and Sache want the rest of Chilliwack to hear. So you may be seeing more big, friendly Huskers around town in the coming months. “We would love to have the guys out at more events,” said Taman. And Sache—who played for the Huskers during their inaugural year—hopes that interaction will also draw more fans and volunteers. “I think a big part of recruiting people is getting more involved in the community,” said Sache. “A lot of the [volunteers] who do get involved more, the biggest thing is they get involved with the players and get to meet the players.” That what happened for Taman, and it’s how she and Sache hope to fill the Exhibition Field stands this year. “It creates that connection with the community; more people what to come out when they know so-and-so from the Huskers,” said Taman. Added Sache: “At the end of the season we want to see the stands full.” The Huskers kick off training this weekend at Exhibition Field. All practices are open to the public. The team also hosts a barbecue for alumni and their families, along with former and current coaches, on July 10 at Cultus Lake, starting around 1 p.m.

Practice schedule July 2: 2 to 4 p.m. July 3: 10 a.m. to noon; 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. July 5: 6:30 to 8:40 p.m. July 6: 6:30 to 8:40 p.m. July 7: 6:30 to 8:40 p.m. July 8: 6:30 to 8:40 p.m. July 9: 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. July 10: 10: 30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Practices continue until July 21. The Huskers play a preseason game in Prince George July 23 against the Kamloops Broncos.

Wheelchair athlete Eddie Solla brought home a gold medal for his win in the 100-metre race.

BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

A

Chilliwack wheelchair athlete won gold last week at the Canadian Track and Field Championships in Calgary. Facing top-level competition and former Paralympians, Eddy Solla won gold in his 100-metre wheelchair racing division. Solla finished in 19.4 seconds to claim first place and improve on last year’s silver medal. “I was more comfortable this year than last year,” he told the Times. At just 16 years old, Solla

was racing against competitors twice his age and is proud to have wheeled away with the gold. With a goal of qualifying for the 2012 Paralympic Games in London, Solla said he’ll need to consistently put up times closer to his personal best of 18 seconds. “I was happy because I finished it, but I didn’t do a good start,” he said. Solla, who last year wheeled his chair from Abbotsford to Chilliwack to raise money for Variety Club, will leave soon for a training camp in Windsor Ont., before returning to B.C. for the provincial championships in Coquitlam. He has also been identified as a potential member of the Canadian Paralympic Team for the 2011 Parapan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. To improve, Solla said there’s only one thing he needs to do: practice, practice, practice. “I can do better,” he says.

Sabrina Fair is a charm of a classic

Players Guild romantic comedy a ‘chick flick’ on the stage

C

ombining a bewitching heroine, handsome suitors, and hidden family secrets with clever dialogue and droll wit, Sabrina Fair dances onto the Cultural Centre Rotary Hall stage from July 6 to 10. This well-written and charming romantic comedy by Samuel A. Taylor is the final production of the Chilliwack Players Guild 2010/2011 season. “I f y o u e n j oy t h e t i m e l e s s charm of a classic, you are sure to love Sabrina Fair,” said director Emily Hamel. “This is the guild’s first performance in the Rotary Hall. The space allows us to create an intimate experience with the actors, which is perfect for this show. Sabrina Fair is utterly charming, full of wit and heart. It is a play version of a ‘chick flick’ and is a perfect way to impress a date.” Sabrina Fairchild grew up on

The guild has been presenting professional-quality shows at home-grown prices to Chilliwack audiences for over 40 years.

ieces of Eight, the vibrant young vocal octet based in Chilliwack, is back for its third annual benefit concert on July 2 and 3 at the UFV Theatre. Not quite your usual vocal ensemble, Pieces of Eight combines classical a cappella music with staged musical theatre and contemporary songs in programs that range from serious and beautiful to decidedly tongue-in-cheek. While Pieces of Eight is becoming well-known locally, it started modestly in 2008, learning one English madrigal for a festival. However, the group expanded rapidly, and four years later, Pieces of Eight loves to sing anything, in any style, that takes its fancy—all with its signature flair, alluring harmonies, charismatic staging and costumes, and captivating programming. This year’s program ranges from favourites “Sweet Caroline” and “’Tis the Last Rose of Summer,” King’s Singers style, to selections from the new “Shrek the Musical” to an eerie piece by Dutch composer Marius Flothuis. Selections vary from full ensemble numbers to solos and duets performed by members of the group, and a touch of creative instrumentation. Pieces of Eight chooses a new charity to support each summer, focusing on local organizations that benefit youth. This year, the group has chosen the Ann Davis Transition Society, with 100 per cent of ticket sales going to this local organization.

In Memoriam In Memory of Joan De Glopper (Dutchess) November 2, 1930 - June 29, 2003

Dear Dutchess (Joan), Eight years have slipped by without you. But as I reflect on the past I think of these things. The sun was shining the day we met. We laughed, we shared many happy moments together. We thought we had all kinds of years ahead, but that was not to be. As each season that comes my way, one thing that is for sure and that is my dear Dutchess is this, I miss you Dutchess until we meet again. Enjoy the roses and flowers in God’s garden and all that heaven has for you. Love, George Postnikoff

Cancer June 21-July 22: It’s a jumbled week, careening between great luck and unexpected rebuffs. Your energy, charisma and effectiveness are at a yearly high, so you can easily handle all this. Your career or ambitions demand behind-scenes agreements or research (or government liaisons) all month. Midweek (especially Wednesday) you could find just the right data or “note” to bring about co-operation from another. But forget about co-operation Thursday/Friday. Your career, VIPs and parents act unpredictably now to 2019, favouring you Monday, impeding you Thursday. Ah, well. Romance Saturday! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Lie low, rest and recuperate. Contemplate and plan. Be charitable, spiritual, deal with government agencies. All these bring peace, affection and good fortune. Your hopes rise all July about a legal, educational, international, cultural/ social or love matter. Good, but be “mild” in this – if you push it or depend on it too heavily, you could weave a subtle trap for yourself (or simply face disappointment) especially around July 22. Despite your weariness, social matters arise, and you find a new talkativeness, humour – good! Be cheerful but cautious in dealing with a boss Tuesday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Your hopes rise, as fun, flirtations, entertainment, popularity and social delights flow around you! You’ll meet (now and for 15 years) fascinating, alluring, elusive and puzzling people. You can let this drive you to distraction, or you can fall in love – “perfect partners” are here! But don’t fall for an alcoholic, drug addict, hopeless dreamer, con artist, porn star or anyone with OCD. These types are easy to spot. (And a con artist will find you invulnerable if you’re – paradoxically – unselfish.) All July, don’t get steamed about, pushy in, nor invest in, your career.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent lies on home, family, real estate, security, garden, nutrition – and ending stale situations. This whole area flows sweetly, even luckily, most of July. One of the situations you end might be a relationship that you once felt defined your life. Despite all this “down home” and “ending” stuff, the weeks ahead are unexpectedly romantic – but the romance is casual, friendly rather than explosive. (The eleven months ahead bring easy sensual links.) Tackle chores Monday/Tuesday. Relationships bloom with significance Wednesday night to Friday: one ends, one starts? Taurus April 20-May 20: The emphasis lies on communications, errands, paperwork, reports, news, details, casual acquaintances, siblings and “everyday busyness.” Money flows swiftly to you and away from you all month – be smart, bank it; avoid spending or you could end up poorer. A major (wrong) temptation to spend could occur around July 20-24 – careful! For 14 months (Aug. 30, 2012) investing, paying down debt, dealing with “net worth” is a lot luckier than spending – think “us,” not “me.” Home-related discussions fill July – they’re a road to future pleasure! Downplay differences Friday. Gemini May 21-June 20: The main accent’s on money, possessions, sensual attraction, memory, rote learning and surface appearances. These flow quite luckily all July (especially Monday morning) but run into some surprises and barriers Thursday/ Friday – avoid shopping these two days. Especially avoid high-tech stuff, don’t finalize investments, and DON’T push for sensual/sexual intimacy. You feel more active, restless, curious, communicative this month – a short trip (or two) could take you to friends, to optimism and hope – go! Romance appeals but isn’t easy Wednesday night to Friday. Step cautiously.

DOG Walking in Richmond OnLeash,Dog Walking:604-785-1476 www.richmonddogwalking.com

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Be ambitious. Your career and prestige relations are blessed with graciousness and good luck all July. This week is packed with planetary aspects both good and obstructive; most of these operate in communications, daily events, and other “light” zones. In a broad way, Sunday/ Monday are easy, Thursday/Friday are difficult (a career choice) and the rest are mixed. Take care with legal, international and educational matters: these grow intense all month, and are double-edged. You could find great agreement, or trip on angry hassles. A light touch works best. Popularity grows! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The emphasis lies on discovery of reasons, of the “why” – and on international travel, love, cultural rituals, society’s raison d’etre, education, publishing, law, abstract thought. It’s a gentle, peaceful time – though this week has so many jumbled and surprising events that the peace might only be within you. I mentioned love – that’s a big theme for the fifteen years ahead. One of your favourite signs, Cancer, is in true love territory, also – and might approach you Saturday. Popularity, hope fill Tuesday/Wednesday. Lie low Thursday/Friday. You shine with charisma Saturday! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Mysteries arise all week, but in most instances these are light or social mysteries, such as a phone number w/o a memory, gossip, a “why’d he do that?” A more significant wonder – or choice – might arise Friday/ Saturday, about money, an investment, inheritance, or a spiritual, health or government situation. If you’re not sure what action to take these two days, just stand back and observe: plans will form soon. Earlier, Sunday/Monday are gentle, wise. Be ambitious Tuesday/Wednesday. Hope arrives, Thursday. All July, relationships intensify: love’s good, fighting’s hard.

July 3 - 9, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The accent lies on relationships, relocation, opportunities, opposition, contracts, negotiations, and dealing with the public. This week is jumbled; misunderstandings can arise. Still, others treat you with affection and grace. Be sure to return the favour Friday, when you might be a little self-involved or stubborn. Ferret out secrets Sunday/Monday – you’ll like what you learn. Wisdom, understanding, gentle love visit midweek. Avoid arguments Tuesday morning. Be ambitious Thursday, but realize unpredictable elements at home might undermine career ”timing.” Hopes soar Saturday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Tackle chores all week – but practise safety. Your romantic courage grows all July. This might spur you to approach someone Sunday/Monday or Wednesday night to Friday. Go, have fun, but accept that experience is its own reward. Success could come, initially, in the pursuit of intimacy (or investments) Monday-Wednesday, but make sure all ethical or legal factors are in place. Ultimately, you might decide this week was better spent on work! A deep insight, secret, ally – or help from an agency – can bring splendid luck on real estate or family fronts. Be ambitious Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Romance fills this week, and some stunning moments can a) bring a locking of eyes that amazes you, or b) a certainty that true love exists or c) both. But true love’s course doesn’t run smoothly this week, so be prepared to jump between intrigue/elation and frustration. By Friday, you’ll experience a deep, subtle knowledge that love is either dawning, or is, in this case, part of the past’s trash pile. All July, beware your temper, especially at home. A friend’s words could point to wish fulfillment midweek! Saturday’s gentle, wise. Don’t move into a new home before Aug. 3. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
