inter hit Chilliwack hard this week leading to road closures, power outages, class cancellations and some serious expenses at city hall. Since Friday night when the snow began, the city’s 10 plow/ sanders, four graders and four backhoes have been working straight 12-hour shifts, which cost between $27,000 and $31,000 per shift, according to city spokesperson Starlee Renton. That means the first 12 shifts up to Thursday at noon, cost the city a minimum of $324,000, which doesn’t include contractors HOTOS hired to help out. See more at The biggest expense for a snow event such as this is the salt/sand mixture, of chilliwacktimes.com which approximately 3,000 tonnes has been laid down since Friday. But even with all the snow, the city’s $900,000 snow and ice control budget for 2012 should be enough. Total snowfall for Monday was 28.8 cm, and total accumulation for January as of Wednesday morning was 68.2 cm, according to Roger Pannett, Chilliwack’s volunteer weather observer for Environment Canada.

Students walk home from Sardis secondary Wednesday morning after they got to school and found the power was out.

Super’s decision draws fire BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he Chilliwack school district drew criticism for keeping schools open despite extreme weather conditions and power outages Wednesday and then for reversing its decision and closing schools at noon. “Chilliwack School District needs to get their act together!” posted one angry mom on Twitter. Superintendent Michael Audet made the call to keep schools open by 5:15 a.m., but said he was surprised by deteriorating weather conditions, including near white-out conditions and drifting snow, as the morning progressed. His decision was criticized on Twitter by parents, teachers and even one city councillor. “It is ridiculous that they didn’t close the schools today!” tweeted Coun. Jason Lum. “I’m wondering who drove the roads in Chilliwack this morning and decided that the schools should be open,” posted Chilliwack teacher Jennifer Thiessen. School closures are ultimately the superintendent’s call, but Audet said the decision is made in consultation with

With more snow falling Wednesday and forecast for Thursday, the record January accumulation of 74 cm in 2002 will likely fall. The temperature reached a low of -13.7 C overnight and the wind continued to cause havoc on the roads. Overnight Tuesday, extreme cold conditions with wind chills dropped to the -25 C to -30 C range. That -13.7 C was the coldest January temperature in Chilliwack since the low of -15.6 C on Jan. 29, 1969, according to Pannett. The high winds were not only adding to the wind chill, but also to problems for city plows as drifting was occurring on some major roads. Renton said people had abandoned cars on both Prest and Evans roads, which caused havoc for the plows who couldn’t pass until tow trucks showed up. All schools were initially open in School District No. 33 on Wednesday, but after much confusion, students were sent home at noon. Approximately 8,000 customers in Sardis were temporarily without power early Wednesday, but most outages had been restored by 10 a.m. By 1 p.m. on Wednesday, Chilliwack River, Prest, South Sumas and Vedder roads were all closed. Evans Road was open, although drifting snow was a problem. Bailey Landfill and Parr Road Green Depot were closed, and curbside garbage pickup was cancelled. Any homeowners who miss curbside garbage pickup can put twice as much out next week, according to city hall. Public works have a few requests for residents because of the large amounts of snow, including: don’t shovel snow onto roadways, remove vehicles from the street where possible, and remove snow from catchbasins.

‘Recycled’ insults ironic, says Martin

Former MP slags party

BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he BC Conservative candidate in the forthcoming provincial byelection in Chilliwack-Hope responded to criticisms of the party and its people made by former Conservative MP Chuck Strahl. Provincially, Strahl has aligned himself with the BC Liberals and was even involved with getting his former chief of staff, Laurie Throness, to vie for the Liberal nomination in Chilliwack-Hope. In an interview with the Globe

and Mail, Strahl said the BCCP is full of “cranky . . . angry” people without credible policies. “Either you rally around the Liberals or you’re going to have the NDP,” Strahl told the Globe. When asked about the comments, John Martin, the soon-tobe-acclaimed BCCP candidate for Chilliwack-Hope, said he disagreed with Strahl and called the insults “recycled.” “We are presenting the people of B.C. with a real choice,” Martin told the Times in an email statement. “Both the Liberals and NDP support policies that make life for ordinary British Columbians more expensive; policies such as the carbon tax, increased ICBC premiums, higher MSP rates and increased BC Hydro bills.

John Martin

“Mr. Strahl’s comments are somewhat ironic considering that was precisely how the establishment repeatedly slandered Chuck and his colleagues in the Reform Party when it was becoming a major player and shaking up the political landscape. So it’s really not surprising the same insults

are being recycled against the BC Conservatives.” Martin was to be acclaimed as the BCCP candidate at the Jan. 17 nomination meeting, which was postponed due to the weather. That meeting is now scheduled for Jan. 24 at 7 p.m. at the Best Western Rainbow Country Inn.

and went to work to do his job,” he added. “He’s died on duty, and we need to ensure that his family, both immediate and extended, have the proper support. As well, we need to ensure those members of the RCMP that worked with him have proper support.” The Transportation Safety Board of Canada ( TSB) said it would deploy a team Wednesday to investigate the crash. The TSB said in a release it “will gather information and assess the occurrence.” The BC Coroners Ser vice is also investigating the cause of death. “If we can identify safety issues that can be fixed, we will make those public so we can mitigate that risk in the future,” TSB spokesman Bill Yearwood said. Brolin joined the RCMP in June 2006. He leaves behind a wife and children. - with files from Andrea Woo/Vancouver Sun

Drug habit fueled plot Extortion scheme hatched by pair desperate for cash

BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

A

former drug dealer who already served 21 months in jail in connection with a $500,000 extortion scheme told Chilliwack Supreme Court Wednesday that his accused accomplice, and erstwhile cocaine client, served up his own uncle as the victim of the plot. Shane Bradley Werner testified Tuesday in the trial of his accused accomplice who, because of a publication ban, can only be identified by his initials, A.K. Werner told Crown counsel Paul Blessin that the extortion plot was a joint venture between himself and A.K. He said that at the time of the offence, he was consuming $200 worth of drugs and cocaine every day. To earn enough money to sustain his habit, Werner turned to selling drugs. Upon his arrest following a police sting, Werner was found with cocaine, crack cocaine, heroin and ecstasy. Werner testified that A.K., who ran a Maple Ridge gas station, was one of his clients. He said the pair hatched the plot to extort half-a-million dollars from A.K.’s uncle, who operates several businesses in Chilliwack. Werner, who says he has been sober for a year and who remains on probation, was terse on the stand, rarely offering sentences exceeding a single word. When Blessin asked who made the deci-

sion to commence the extortion plot, he said: “partly mine.” “Who else’s decision was it?” A long pause enveloped the court room before Werner stated the accused’s full name. But under cross-examination, Werner admitted to defence lawyer Jeffrey Ray that his heavy drug use at the time, along with the passage of more than two years since the offence, has compromised his memory. “You weren’t able to remember things that were going on at that time,” Ray posited. “Yeah, sometimes,” Werner responded. “A lot of times, I’m going to suggest to you, you didn’t know what was going on because of your drug use, right?” “Sometimes.” Earlier, Blessin played several wiretepped conversations in which a man threatens A.K.’s uncle and his family with harm unless he paid $500,000. Werner identified the voice on the recordings as his own. But after Ray played two separate conversations, Werner said he didn’t “recall hearing that phone call.” “The passage of time has eaten at what memory you have left of the events of September 2009, is that right?” Ray asked. “I guess so.” Ray then asked Werner about his earlier testimony, in which he said A.K. provided the phone number, name and details of his uncle. “You can’t be sure now what information [A.K.] gave you, correct?” “Not 100 per cent, no,” Werner replied. During his testimony, Werner also told Blessin that—despite what he told his would-be victim—he did not work for the Hells Angels and had not been party to similar extortions in the past. The trial continues.

T

he battle against cancer is no longer limited to doctors, nurses, researchers and care aides. The public has long joined in the fight: some people ride bikes; others collect bottles; and some run marathons. Men, women and children swim, knit and clip (their hair) to battle the killer disease. But Norm Rollheizer, who lost a brother and sister to cancer, drives. Four days a week, the 67-year-old retired corrections officer picks up cancer patients in his Toyota Matrix and delivers them to Lower Mainland hospitals—most often in Abbotsford, but also in Surrey and Vancouver. In 2009, after two decades of driving taxi in Chilliwack, Rollheizer began wielding his keys as one of the Canadian Cancer Society’s volunteer drivers. The volunteer driver program—which launched a recruiting drive this week— provides a vital service for cancer patients already coping with a life-altering disease and who don’t have access to transportation. For Rollheizer, who was named the organization’s driver of the year in December, it seemed like an obvious way to lend his professional talents to a vital cause.

Doors open 3 p.m. DUE TO WEATHER Registration from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m. Landing Sports Centre 45530 Spadina Ave. (formerly called the Ag Rec building) Refreshments will be served.

hard.” But she has responded well to recent treatments. “She’s doing much better now,” he said. Rollheizer shrugs off other difficulties. “The traffic gets pretty horrendous at times, but you learn to live with it.” And while he enjoys driving cab—which he does as much as a hobby as for the paycheque—Rollheizer said ferrying cancer patients around for free has one big advantage over his part-time gig: “You don’t have to fight for the fares,” he says. Both Rollheizer and Agnes Sol, the volunteer driver program’s co-ordinator and dispatcher, said the patients are almost unanimously grateful. “They thank me over and over again,” said Sol, who also drives. “We have clients that cannot get themselves to . . . their treatments,” said Sol. For those people, the program is a lifeline. “They are so grateful.” But the volunteer drivers are in need of reinforcements. The program has only around a dozen local volunteers. Some of those drive every day; others are less available. That means any help is welcome, especially from drivers in outlying communities like Harrison Hot Springs and Agassiz. “Without the drivers, we couldn’t help the patients who need treatment,” said Sol. Donations are also welcome. While the drivers donate their time and vehicles to the cause, the Canadian Cancer Society pays for the drivers’ gas.

More help for smokers I t has been said many times that there is nothing worse than a reformed smoker. Mostly, it’s smokers who say it. But, hey! No matter who says it, there is nothing more musical to the ears of a crusty old newspaper editor than to hear that there’s nothing worse than him. Yep. I am a reformed smoker. I gave up the evil weed 36 years ago. That’s about a half-dozen years before I could have taken advantage of the moral support of National Non-Smoking Week . . . which is this week, for the 30th time. When I stopped smoking— after several tries, some lasting a couple of months or more—I relied on the help of a girlfriend. She told me something had to go: either the smokes, or her. I dumped the habit, and two weeks later, she dumped me—and there was no way I was ever going to give her the satisfaction of seeing me with a cigarette hanging from my mouth after that. Kicking the cancer sticks works differently for different people. It’s seldom easy. At 2:30 in the afternoon on Feb. 4, 1976, I tossed into the nearest garbage can a pack that still had six cigarettes in it. (A friend fished them out, asking if I minded if he took them. I said, “No, go ahead, catch cancer, if you like.” He said, “Anyone can quit smoking; it takes a MAN to

BOB GROENEVELD

Be Our Guest face cancer.”) I attribute my success in stopping (not “quitting”: you can’t quit, you can only stop, and hope it never catches you back) to two things. First was my pride. As I noted above, I wasn’t going to let my “ex” think I was too weak to stay off the cancer sticks without her. Second was tossing those six smokes in the trash. All my earlier attempts started with me saying, “As soon as this pack is finished . . .” Chucking those six valuable cigarettes constituted a commitment. No, three things: Third was the escalating cost of cigarettes. Within a couple of days of my last smoke, the price had escalated to a whopping 65 cents for a pack of 20—three quarters (an astounding 75 cents) to buy them from a vending machine… speaking of which, whatever happened to those vending machines that were absolutely everywhere? As I had been smoking a pack and a half a day (which increased every time I started up again after “quitting”), that was turning into serious bread for a university

student. No, four things: Fourth was my dad’s pride. He was so obviously, incredibly proud of me for breaking the habit, that I couldn’t have had the heart to let him down. As a smoker himself, he knew how difficult stopping can be. I know some smokers will go “Aha! Your dad’s a smoker, and you’ve said he’s now 97 years old! How unhealthy can it be, after all, eh?” Sorry to rain on your smoke, folks, but apart from there being occasional anomalies to the statistical reality, dad’s another of us ex-smokers. He quit—and there’s a hilarious story to go with that, for another day—way back in the 1960s. And there’s a fifth thing that kept me from starting up again, despite the intense cravings (and nightmares on the eve of each anniversary of my success since then, nightmares in which I discover that I’ve been sneaking puffs all along). It took about six months to really notice the change . . . but my general health had improved dramatically. Now there is a lot more help for those who want to stop smoking than there was (here comes the old man line!) . . . back in my day. See provincially subsidized options at www.health.gov.bc.ca/ pharmacare/stop-smoking. ◗ Bob Groeneveld is the editor of the Langley Advance.

ome laws should be changed because they should never have been made. Others should be changed because they were made at a time when they made sense . . . but times change. The federal ban on reporting election results while polls remain open in some parts of Canada is a fine example of the latter. Under current federal law governing federal general elections, it is illegal to report ballot counts, party standings, winners and losers . . . anything that could be construed as “election results” from eastern Canada until after the polls close in British Columbia. It makes sense, because the results of eastern voters’ choices could colour decision-making by western voters—knowing what the other guys did could be construed as an advantage for the west (or a disadvantage, for purists who feel voters should make their decisions based on personal choices, rather than responding to a pack mentality). It should simply be a question of fairness for all voters. But it’s not. The problem is timing; it’s about time zones. Polling times are already delayed in the east and moved up in the west, to try and synchronize voting periods. But Canada is a big country, and you can push that solution only so far. Consequently, there still is a lag between poll hours on opposite coasts. While “legitimate” news media in Canada are forced to adhere to the ban, international news sources, especially some radio stations in the United States that traditionally capitalized on the Canadian ban, were not bound by any such rules, and slipped election results to B.C. in time for voters here to take the information to the polling booths. And now the realities of Facebook, Twitter, other social media, and even virtually instantaneous email and the simplicity of texting have rendered the ban completely obsolete. This is one thing the “Harper Government” is doing right.

An angel walks amongst us Editor: Recently, we went to grocery shopping at PriceSmart as we have done daily for some 20 years now. My elderly husband picked up a basket, offered me his arm and with cane in my right hand we started down the aisles. When we had our list completed my husband chose the most likely checkout counter, began loading our groceries on the belt. Turning to me he said: “We forgot the whipping cream! Hurry up and run and get it!” Run indeed! At 90 years of age I cannot hurry and run is out of the question. After half a dozen steps an angel was beside me, offering her arm and said that she would help me. As we “hurried” I told her that I wanted to bake some Martha Stewart scones and needed the cream. She asked me my name. I told her it is Gladys. She said her name was Catharine or was it Kathleen, I’m not sure. As she opened the cream cabinet she said she would now run with it. I made my way to the end of the aisle, turned on the main drag and saw her waving her arms at the end of the right checkout. She made it. Now she walked back towards me, interrupted my grateful thank you’s and

hugged me. What a wonderful girl. I want everyone to know that a very kind and thoughtful angel walks amongst us. Gladys Birch Chilliwack

‘Snail’ stole the show for him Editor: With the production of A Year With Frog and Toad the Chilliwack School of Performing Arts has done it again. We saw the final full dress rehearsal last Thursday night and it was wonderful. This is a very large, very complex production with a very large cast of very talented young people between the ages of 12 and 17. “Snail” stole the show for me. I haven’t laughed so hard in years. I didn’t think it was possible for a human being to “snail walk” that slowly. The young actresses who played “Frog” and “Toad” were outstanding. These were demanding roles and the singing, dancing and gymnastics were simply outstanding. I shouldn’t single out individuals in this production as they were all extremely good. The set itself was a work of art and an engineering miracle. It was worth the price of admission just to see the set. The costume designs were so appropriate to the theme and contributed in a meaningful way to the overall wonder of the play. I was also quite impressed with the special effects which were handled so well. The play is running at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre until Jan. 22. This is a production well worth seeing and is fun for all ages. Jack Carradice Chilliwack

Editor: In preparation for the provincial election on 2013, Christy Clark and the BC “Liberals” are obviously strategizing and preparing for their confrontation with the NDP. Their attack ads against Adrian Dix shows that they are desperate and are willing to utilize outright lies to set their agenda. I put quotation marks around the word “Liberal,” because we all know that they are not liberals in any sense of the word. They are but a dog’s breakfast—a coalition of Reformers, Socreds, Conservatives and a smattering of former Liberals that joined together in order to defeat the NDP. Clark herself has a strategy to “out conservative” the Conservatives themselves in the faint hope that they can continue this “anything but the NDP” strategy that worked so well in 2001. I don’t think that the people will be so fooled this time around. Clark has hired the former senior advisor to Stephen Harper, Ken Boessenkool as her chief of staff and the former Reform advisor, Dimitri Pantazopoulos remains on her office staff. At the local level here in Chilliwack, Clark has chosen Chuck Strahl’s former staffer to run as the BC Liberal candidate in the upcoming provincial by-election. Clark is obviously hoping to tie into that perceived Conservative vote in the upper Fraser Canyon and, hopefully for her, lay the groundwork for a Conservative vote in 2013. The new BC Conservative Party may have something to say about that one. These incidents illustrate what I have been saying for many, many years—that there are no fundamental differences between the “Conservative” or “Liberal” parties in B.C., that they both are controlled, lock, stock and barrel by the corporate sector. Many corporations give large chunks of monies to both parties, while the NDP receives relatively little monies from union donations. It is long overdue that more people accepted the reality that, while the BC Liberals and Conservatives are the mouthpieces of corporate B.C., the NDP is working tirelessly for the common working person, whether she/he be an hourly wage earner, a

wo Chilliwack high school boys basketball teams tested their mettle against a starstudded field last weekend at the 52nd annual Snowball Classic at Abbotsford Collegiate. The double A G.W. Graham Grizzlies kicked off the prestigious tournament with a 65-54 win over the Yale Lions, earning a second-round match-up against the number-one ranked AAA powerhouse Kelowna Owls. “We were in the game,” said Grizzlies coach Jake Mouritzen. “We played very well.” Graham was within three points at the beginning of the third thanks to eight quick points from Lucas Mannes in the last minute of the second, but the Grizzlies went on to drop the game 83-71. Graham defeated 10th ranked AAA Burnaby South 74-71 Friday, and pushed the seventhranked AAA Kitsilano Blue Demons into overtime Saturday before dropping the game for fifth place 84-70. Mannes was named to the tournament’s second all-star team. The Chilliwack secondary Storm opened the Snowball with a tight 51-44 loss to host Abby Collegiate but beat the MEI Eagles 66-48 in the next round to win a consolation match-up against Kelvin Clippers of Winnipeg. The Storm dropped that game 87-45.

McDonald drains seven three-pointers for Griz BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

G

.W. Graham’s senior girls basketball team took fifth place at the St. Michaels University School’s Police tournament in Victoria last weekend. The Grizzlies were held off by hosts SMUS in a tight opening game. Down by as many as 16 in the first half, Graham battled back to tie the game briefly at 55 but eventually conceded 60-58. The Grizzlies made sure in the second

game against Dover Bay, however, opening on an 11-2 run and never looking back. They finished the game 69-44 with Graham’s Kenzie McDonald putting up 26 points and Jess Bannerman scoring 24. The Grizzlies ended the tournament with a decisive 70-36 victory over Point Grey, blowing open a close game with 12 three pointers—seven from McDonald, who racked up 23 points in all. ◗ The girls are back in action Thursday night as they host Mission’s Heritage Park in league play. Tip off is at 6:30 p.m.

Sr. Storm girls in tough at Shootout

C

hilliwack secondary’s senior girls basketball team faced an imposing field at the prestigious Top-10 Shootout at Centennial secondary in Coquitlam last weekend. The 16-team tournament hosted most of the top-10 ranked triple A teams in the province, and CSS found themselves a little in over their heads. Number-one ranked Riverside dominated the Storm’s opening game from start to finish, handing Chilliwack an 87-42 loss. Christina Vandenbrink led the Storm’s offence with 14 points. During the second game Chilliwack held Gleneagle to 35-31 at the half but lost ground in the third and eventually dropped the game 54-40. Nicole Bartel contributed 14 points. Chilliwack conceded their third game 5936 to hosts Centennial, but a strong Storm

defence held the Centaurs to 33-30 at the half and gave up just five points in the third and a single point in fourth. Kelsi Mclean led scoring for CSS with 13 points. By game four against Kitsilano, Chilliwack was battling injuries, weather and foul trouble but still managed a 32-31 lead at half before losing the game 60-48. “Kelsi Mclean led her team with some outstanding game management,” said coach Joe Ogmundson of the final game, “and Chilliwack actually increased the lead throughout the entire fourth quarter.” Christina Vandenbrink led the Storm with 14 points.

Chia is not just for pets Who knew that the Chia Pet of infomercial fame was actually good for you? As additional information about its health benefits come to light, the chia seed is positioned to become a mainstream staple

C

hia seeds (Salvia hispanica L.) were first used as food as early as 3,500 BC and were one of the mainstays of the Aztec and the Mayan diets. Chia seeds are so versatile that they were eaten as a grain, consumed as a beverage when mixed with water, ground into flour, included in medicines, pressed for oil and used as a base for face and body paints. Chia was so highly valued for its nutritional and hydrating properties that it was used as a form of currency. This superseed is the highest-plant based source of omega-3 (ALA) at 19.3 percent and is naturally rich in soluble fibre, protein and antioxidants. This makes it a great whole food for anyone interested in improving their health and reducing their risk of illness.

*-!)! &$/ '.( %/# ,-+$"

Because of their nutritional value and stability, chia seeds are now being added to a range of foods. COBS Bread, a Canadian bakery chain, offers freshly baked white, whole wheat and flax chia seed breads. A large number of COBS’ customers have switched

from the traditional bread range to the chia bread range since its launch last January. “People are very interested in upgrading to our CHIA Bread once they hear about all its health benefits” says Elise Gillespie, Vice President of COBS Bread. “The challenge is getting that message out to the general public.”

What are the benefits of Omega-3 fats?

Why the recent interest in increasing Omega-3?

Omega-3 fats are a group of polyunsaturated fats. Beyond reducing the risk of heart disease, omega3s can reduce the risk of stroke while helping to reduce symptoms of hypertension, depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), joint pain and other rheumatoid problems, as well as certain skin ailments. Some research has shown that omega-3s can boost the immune system and help protect from an array of illnesses including Alzheimer’s disease. Omega-3s also play an important role in brain functioning. Omega-3 fats are highly concentrated in the brain and appear to be important for cognitive (brain memory and performance) and behavioural function.

While omega-3s protect our hearts and fight inflammation, omega-6s are now the foundation of our modern food supply. Omega-6 fats compete with omega-3 fats for absorption and have led to widespread omega-3 deficiency. Symptoms of this deficiency include poor circulation, poor memory, fatigue, heart problems, mood swings or depression. While reducing your intake of omega-6s can help, getting more omega-3s from food is an even better way to go. The recommendation is to consume two 3-4 ounce servings of fatty fish a week, but it is suggested that this is not environmentally sustainable. We need to look to plant sources to meet our global needs. These include chia seeds source: Ramona Josephson RD and flax seeds.

Ramona Josephson RD applauds these breads as exciting, healthy additions to a daily diet and as a positive step in tackling serious health concerns related to heart disease and blood sugar control. Two slices of COBS CHIA Bread provide 100% of the daily intake of omega-3 fats

for children and women and 90% for men. They also provide up to 30% of the daily recommended intake of dietary fibre. “Bread is a staple in so many of our diets and COBS’ new CHIA Breads make it easy to meet our daily needs for these nutrients,” Josephson adds.

Special deals for Chiefs fans

T

he Chiefs are in Prince George tonight and tomorrow for a pair of massive games against the team they are trying to overtake for third place in the Interior Conference standings. Following the twin bill versus the Kings ,Harvey Smyl’s squad will return home to face the Westside Warriors for a rare Sunday game. For those of you who like to put on the skates and go for a wheel, you can join the Chiefs players for a skate following this Sunday’s game at Prospera Centre. Skate rentals will also be available and game time is 5 p.m. If you are a Chilliwack Minor Hockey player there is still time to contact Andrea at the Chiefs office to receive a specialpriced ticket. Speaking of deals, the Chiefs are unveiling a new ticket package for all Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce business members that provides them the opportunity to pick up two tickets, two pops and two hotdogs for only $20. If you are a business owner and are not a member of the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce, now would be the ideal time to contact Patti or Alyssa at 604-793-4323 and sign up. The Chiefs focus will continue to be based on creating family-minded

Chiefs Insider packages with non-alcoholic beverages to ensure that you and your family will have a safe and enjoyable hockey experience. I can’t provide all of the details yet on a certain event that the Chiefs are planning, but I can give you a few hints: Chiefs season ticket holders will be invited first; it will take place at Frankie’s Italian Kitchen; the Chiefs players could be involved as waiters; and if you unscramble these three words it will give you a possible title—staap ad cpuk. The Chiefs community appearances this season will now include spending quality time with some of our seniors in the area. The Chiefs players are going to be making regular visits to the Hampton House, which is a retirement community located on Hodgins Avenue near the Landing Leisure Centre. Chiefs president Glen Ringdal kicked off the partnership by sharing the “Chiefs story” with the residents this past snowy Monday, and this upcoming

Monday the seniors are coming for a behind-the-scenes tour of Prospera Centre . A lot of credit has to go to Chiefs netminder Bryton Udy for this initiative as he came to us before Christmas and asked how he and some of his teammates could give back to the seniors in our community. One brainstorming session with Rita Dick and Tracey McDonald from Hampton House is all it took to create some fun-filled activities that the Chiefs are thrilled to be part of. I came across an interesting note online recently regarding the Vernon Vipers and a couple of unexpected special guests popping by to watch BCHL hockey recently. Australian actress Nicole Kidman and her country music star husband Keith Urban took in a couple periods of the Vipers-Victoria Grizzlies game. The A-list celebrities were apparently skiing nearby during the day and were looking for some entertainment in the evening. If you are a twitter person don’t forget if you follow @ chiefs_hockey that you can now tweet a song request during Chiefs games. Chiefs music man Kris Abbott will do his best to get in as many tunes as he can. You can also follow me @barrydouglas1.

Faith Today

The prayer experiment MATT REMPEL Revolution Church

I

am a morning person. I love leaping out of bed as soon as I hear the birds chirping from my cellphone alarm app. Ah nature! I immediately head to the kitchen, whistling a happy tune, with a bounce in my step . . . a bounce like a flat basketball. If I’m honest, mornings can be a challenge. Especially when six inches of snow cover the whole Fraser Valley floor. Thankfully, I have a secret weapon that helps drag my reluctant self out of bed in the morning—coffee. For me, there is nothing more soothing than the sound of the gentle percolation and the rich smell of the steam as it spreads through the house. That first cup of coffee has a way of making me feel like the day is starting off right. (Don’t worry, I’m not addicted; I just have an uncontrollable dependence on it.) A morning coffee has just become part of my routine. What is the thing you do to start your day off right? Maybe it’s making breakfast, brushing your teeth or perusing the paper. I have a friend who likes to do Sudoku puzzles first thing in the morning. To each their own, I suppose. Now, being partial to a morning espresso, or whatever your “day starter” happens to be, is all well and good, but I wonder if we are missing out on something more important at the start of our day—prayer. How many of us spend a few moments at the beginning of our day to simply acknowledge the presence of God and ask him for guidance and help? Although I’m not a

betting man, I hazard a guess that most of us tend to overlook prayer as an important aspect of our lives. Perhaps it is because we often can’t see the immediate results of our prayers; perhaps it is because things are generally going fine, so why pray? Or perhaps, for some, it is because belief in God is not a part of their mindset. I can relate to all of these reasons, as I have voiced them myself at certain times in my life. However, regardless of the reasons not to pray, I can’t help but think that, more often than not, we human beings could use some help and guidance in our lives. So my question is: Do we ask God for help? Do we go to him in prayer, or do we try to make it on our own? In the Bible, Matthew chapter 14 records an amazing account in the lives of Jesus and his disciples. The disciples are in their boat, stuck in a vicious storm. Jesus walks out on the water, calling out to them that they need not be afraid. One of them, Peter, responds, “If it’s really you, tell me to come to you.” Jesus does so, and Peter steps out on the water. After a few steps, however, Peter begins to fear and starts to sink, and it is in this moment that he prays one of the best prayers anyone can ever pray: “Lord, save me.” Peter asks Jesus for help. Simple, short and sincere. Whether you are a follower of Jesus or not, I propose an experiment: As you start your day, say a short prayer, asking God for guidance and help. Then let’s go for coffee and chat about how it went. ◗ Matt Rempel is a pastor with Revolution Church and can be reached at: matt@revolutionchurch.ca

World’s Top Coin Collectors in Town Next Week to Purchase All Types of Coins! By DAVID MORGAN STAFF WRITER

Also at this event anyone can sell their gold jewellery, dental gold or anything made of gold on the spot. Gold is currently trading at record high prices. Bring anything you think might be gold and the collectors will examine, test and price it for free. If you decide to sell, you will be paid on the spot – it has been an unknown fact that coin dealers have always paid more for jewellery and scrap gold than other jewelers and pawn brokers. So whether you have one coin you think might be valuable or a large collection you recently inherited, you can talk to these collectors for free. If your’re lucky you may have a rarity worth thousands. Either way there is nothing to lose and it sounds like fun!

ICC will be placing ads in newspapers, radio and running television spots this week asking people to bring in any old silver and gold coins made before 1968 and U.S. coins made before 1970. Those that bring in their coins will be able to speak with collectors one on one and have their coins looked at by a specialist. With the help of these ICC members, offers will be made to those that have coins made before 1968. Offers will be made based on silver or gold content and the rarity of the coins. All coins made before 1968 will be examined and purchased including gold coins, silver coins, silver dollars, all types of nickels and pennies. Those that decide to sell their coins will be paid on the spot. If you are like a lot of people you might have a few old coins or even a coffee can full lying around. If you have ever wondered what they are worth now might be your chance to find out and even sell them if you choose. They could be worth a lot according to the International Coin Collectors also known as ICC. Collectors will pay a fortune for some coins and currency for their collections. If it is rare enough, one coin could be worth over $100,000 according to Eric Helms, coin collector and ICC member. One ultra rare dime, an 1894S Barber, sold for a record $1.9 million to a collector in July of 2007. While that is an extreme example, many rare and valuable coins are stashed away in dresser drawers or lock boxes around the country. The ICC and its collector members have organized a traveling event in search of all types of coins and currency. Even common coins can be worth a significant amount due to the high price of silver and gold, says Helms. Washington quarters and Roosevelt dimes can be worth many times their face value. Recent silver markets have driven the price up on common coins made of silver. Helms explains that all U.S. half dollars, quarters and dimes made before 1970 contain 90% silver and are sought after any time silver prices rise. Right now it’s a sellers market he said. The rarest coins these collectors are looking for include $20, $10, $5 and $2 1/2 gold coins and any coin made before 1850. These coins always bring big premiums according to the ICC. Silver dollars are also very sought after nowadays. Other types of items the ICC will be purchasing during this event include U.S. currency, gold bullion, investment gold, silver bars, silver rounds, proof sets, etc. Even foreign coins are sought after and will be purchased.

On Cooking other great benefits. Regardless, a great way to reduce the number of calories you eat is to consume what are classified as negative calorie or zero calorie foods. These can be described as foods that take just as much, or more, energy to consume as the number of calories in the food. Although there are no scientific studies to prove this to be true, these types of foods are definitely low in calories and also very nutritious. Some examples of these would be celery, broccoli, cabbage, spinach, garlic, and cucumbers. Of course what you put on these foods, or how you cook them, can add a lot of calories. A good habit to get into is to read the ingredient lists of premade prepackaged foods. A recent trip to the grocery store to buy some “healthy” cereal revealed that there are a lot of choices that appear to be good for you on the outside, but upon reading the ingredient list, revealed that many were high in sugar. Even natural sugars, such as cane sugar, are still sugars and have many calories. One is better off buying rolled oats (not the instant variety) or 100 per cent shredded wheat and adding some fresh fruit, skim milk and maybe a zerocalorie sweetener such as Splenda or Stevia.

he 21-day City Wide Literacy Challenge is back. Starting Feb. 1, Chilliwack residents are encouraged to set aside 20 minutes per day for three weeks to read. Along with honing literacy skills, taking the challenge gives participants a chance to win great prizes when they fill out a reading passport. “Reading is really, really good for us,” said Chilliwack community literacy co-ordinator Debbie Denault. “It’s a way to learn. It’s good for our brains. It’s a way for us to follow our interests.” Literacy skills are important for individual success, but they’re also important to a community’s bottom line, according to Denault. “The more literate a community is, the healthier the community becomes,” she said. ◗ Clip reading passports from an issue of the Times or print one out at our website, www. chilliwacktimes.com.

if you are used to eating high sugar cereals, these options may not taste as good at first, but if you can find a way for your mind and taste buds to bask in the fact that you are eating much healthier, then this transition will be easier to swallow. This being said, I believe the main reason why “diets” don’t work is because as soon as people eliminate something from their regular eating routines, they want it more. It is human nature to always yearn for something the more we can’t have it. I feel that it is so important to have one splurge meal per week. This way you won’t feel like you are eliminating foods from your enjoyment forever. If you get a craving for something unhealthy, just say to yourself “I am going to have that for my splurge meal this week.” Keep in mind that temptations may happen more often than not, so it is best to keep it to one splurge per week and plan to have that splurge at the end of the week, not only to congratulate yourself, but also you will have the chance to use it earlier if something unavoidable comes up. The more you set yourself up for success (having healthy food options available to you at all times for example), the better your outcome will be. The battle is mostly mental. I don’t diet—my occupation can’t allow for that, so what I do instead is lifestyle: making a choice to eat healthy as much as possible because chances are I will live longer and have a better quality of life.

ow are you doing with your new year’s resolution to eat healthier? In my last column I mentioned ways and tips for eating less fat. Now I want to take it one step further and discuss ways of reducing calories, and also take a small trip into the human psyche of dieting. It’s amusing that the old saying goes “never trust a skinny chef,” implying that the chef’s food can’t be very good if the creator of the food him/herself doesn’t eat very much of it. A skinny chef rather, should be looked upon as one who can not only control their passion for food, but also knows how to make healthy food taste great. Not only am I conscious of what (and how much) I am putting into my body; I also have a home gym to help facilitate a balanced healthy lifestyle. I will be the first to say that my job has the occupational hazard of constant food sampling, but I also believe that what goes in needs to be burned off. Apparently, in order to lose one pound per week, we need to increase the number of calories burned by 500 per day, while keeping our diet maintained at the current level. This can also be interpreted as decreasing our intake by 500 calories, while keeping our exercising (or lack thereof) at the current level, for the same effect. The increase in your exercise level, however, is the better choice of the two as it will lead to better cardiovascular health and an increase in lean muscle tissue, among many

In a faltering economy and with the last dregs of public funding drying up, these worthy programs will be in jeopardy without private support. For this reason, the academy’s faculty have come together for a second time to help raise funds to ensure a bright future for music education in this community by donating performances that will charm one and all. ◗ Tickets for this event are available through the cultural centre box office: www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca or 604391-SHOW.

GALAXY CINEMAS CHILLIWACK

he Chilliwack Academy of Music’s second annual faculty concert, Bella Notte or “beautiful night” is scheduled for Feb. 4 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. This gala fundraiser features the talents of both the academy’s teachers as well as their students, and proceeds go to support the academy’s many community outreach activities. The Italian-themed evening will begin with a chicken parmigiana dinner prepared by Cookies Grill and accompanied by music from academy students performing popular Italian songs in the background. Guests will then make their way into the beautiful main theatre for a full concert program building on the event’s Italian and “nighttime” themes and performed by the academy’s teaching faculty. The range of musical programming will delight everyone no matter the taste: from Mozart’s familiar Eine Kleine Nachtmusik, through Astor Piazzolla’s cheeky tango “Spring,” which puts a tropical spin on Vivaldi’s celebrated concerto from The Four Seasons, and ending with the Academy Dixieland band that brought down the house when it debuted at last year’s inaugural faculty concert. At the heart of this gala event is the need to sustain support for the academy’s many community outreach programs. Not only does the school offer high quality private and group lessons for its students, but the academy is also a beacon for music education in the whole community. It accomplishes this through partnerships with many fellow non-profits such as the Chilliwack Cultural Centre, the Chilliwack School of Performing Arts, Elder Col-

Loss of Eureka sci-fi series estimated to be $1 million BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

The sci-fi series Eureka was a downtown fixture for more than five years.

to stay in the Greater Vancouver area where they don’t have to pay for travel time. This year, to make sure the industry is aware of what Chilliwack and other Fraser Valley municipalities have to offer, the regional film co-operative is using a $10,000 provincial grant to take photographs of key sites to add to the B.C. Film Commission’s digital library, a resource filmmakers use when they’re deciding where to shoot. According to a BCFC official, the library already contains over 15,000 images of 321 Chilliwack locations, but Wilson said the Fraser Valley Film Co-operative will make sure those images are up to date and there aren’t any gaps.

ast year might have been a banner year for the Chilliwack Film Commission, with $1.5 million in film industry money flowing into the local economy, but revenues are likely to drop dramatically in 2012 now that the TV series Eureka has left town. The sci-fi series, which started shooting here five years ago and wrapped up last summer, accounted for about $1 million of film-industry spending in town last year, according to Chilliwack Film Commission liaison Netty Tam. “They were here a number of times last year, so that really contributed to the local economy,” she said. So far the commission doesn’t have any other projects in the works to fill the void in 2012, not even commercials, like the Wendy’s and Walmart promos shot here last year. But such dry times are not unusual in the industry, according to Doug Wilson, who co-ordinates the Fraser Valley Film Cooperative, which works with municipalities to draw filmmakers to the region. “It’s really hard to predict,” he said. “You can go a couple of months and you don’t get any requests or any interest at all and, all of a sudden, in three days, I’ve had two.” Since location choices for films and commercials are script-driven, there’s only so much a local film commission can do to attract projects, he said, and unless filmmakers are looking for something unique to the upper Fraser Valley, they tend

Cancer June 21-July 22: The weeks ahead feature mysteries, depths, research, sexual urges, subconscious desires, hunches and intuition. Investments and other heavy finances (mortgages, debts, a partner’s worth, etc.) will become important. All these are doubly accented Sunday night through Tuesday, when a new project might be born. Sunday daytime contains some relationship puzzles or frustrations. A mild, understanding mood flows over you Wednesday/Thursday – solve legal, travel and educational problems Wednesday. Be ambitious Friday/Saturday. All week, the news you receive is “realistic,” correct. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Relationships come to the fore through the weeks ahead. Be diplomatic, eager to join, or you’ll create opposition. If you co-operate, you’ll open the door to opportunities, success, even love. (Though truthfully, love isn’t a big possibility before June.) Money has flowed your way since November, but now the flow curls, ebbs – the faucet will turn on again in April. Meanwhile, pay your debts, avoid spending. Chores or illness mar Sunday, but this night to Tuesday brings fresh horizons, opportunities. Thursday/Friday steer you into deeper waters: desire, big finances – careful! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Employment, chores, machinery and health concerns fill the weeks ahead (especially this Monday/Tuesday). A new project might begin in one of these – but take care on the money and legal sides, as some glitches exist. (E.g., don’t overpay for that bulldozer, and make sure the transfer papers are correct.) Relationships, opposition and opportunity, new horizons, exciting meetings, negotiations fill Wednesday/Thursday. A subtle but firm “difficulty” exists between you and another which can make communication slow. No harm here. Late week wakens your desires, financial and sexual.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Be ambitious Sunday, but don’t expect cooperation. This night through Tuesday brings joy, friends, optimism, freshness, plans for the future, and wish fulfillment – a trend that will last until late February. It’s a splendid time to make new friends, but not with a Libra, Capricorn, Gemini or Virgo before Friday (OK after that). Retreat for a wee rest Wednesday/Thursday. Your energy surges upward Friday/Saturday – a wish could come true Saturday. All week, work gears down…a breather comes, through mid-April. Love takes a shy/private road, but will trumpet itself in February. Taurus April 20-May 20: People who have been working against you (if they have) back off now to mid-April. You get, during the same period, some relief from burdens (though an old one might return). A secret romantic attraction, or a research-heavy creative project (if they exist) also wilt. In April, though, all these will “catch fire” again. So use the interval to decide what to accept/pursue, what not to. Otherwise, use the weeks ahead for business, career, prestige and status concerns. Be ambitious, especially Sunday night to Tuesday. Success awaits! Joy, friends midweek. Rest, plan Friday/Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: The four weeks ahead bring a mellow, understanding mood. It’s a little early for big, new, splendiferous love, but the love that exists grow finer, sweeter. Discuss meaningful things with your spouse, lover, whomever. Far travel, legal matters, international concerns, higher education, religion, publishing – these succeed over the weeks ahead, especially Sunday night through Tuesday (when a new project might begin in these zones). Sunday contains one last echo of health concern, sexual urge or financial derring-do. Now to mid-April, an old property/family hope might return.

Jan. 22 - 28, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The weeks ahead are filled with the sweetness of love, especially for teens and twenty-types. Rest or clean house Sunday daytime. This night through Tuesday romance, creative urges, speculative and adventurous risks, beauty and deep pleasure pull you – and succeed. But let me raise a wee caution: you might, in succeeding, be indulging lust, and closing a door to love with a very marriageable person. (This danger lasts to Friday, then ebbs.) Protect your health and tackle chores Wednesday/Thursday – don’t buy machinery. Relationships move well Friday, stumble slightly Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Sink into domestic situations. Home, nature, garden, farm are your natural habitat through the weeks ahead. Pay attention to nutrition, soul, digestion. (Funny how stomach and soul are so connected.) You might start a new yard or property project, especially Monday/Tuesday. You’ll feel sluggish, so get lots of rest. Romance, nature’s beauty, charming children and a creative surge visit you Wednesday/Thursday. In romance, you might feel communications are slow or mildly obstructive. Avoid actions that can lead to gossip. Tackle chores Friday/ Saturday. All’s well! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Communications, short trips, paperwork, details, news media, errands, siblings and casual acquaintances fill the few weeks ahead. You’ll be busy, but this is not an important time, so stay relaxed. Protect your money Sunday – don’t shop. Monday/Tuesday favour trips, calls and friends. Sink into home or foundational matters Wednesday/ Thursday: nutrition, soul, children, systems at the workplace, plumbing, etc. Your romantic side flares nicely Friday/Saturday – but this is not a good time to start a love affair. You’ll enjoy these two days: the world looks wide and welcoming!

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Chase money for the few weeks ahead, especially this Monday/Tuesday, when an earnings (or purchasing) project might begin. But remain cautious through Thursday, as your ideas and your speech tend to dead-end against a higherup’s staunch, polite refusal. (Buy NO communications devices – nor anything used – before Friday.) Your energy remains high Sunday. Later, Wednesday/ Thursday are for paperwork, errands, calls and contacts – busy, light stuff. Bury yourself in domestic, foundational, security and retirement matters Friday/ Saturday. Until April, a legal hassle takes a breather. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your energy, magnetism, effectiveness and timing surge to a yearly high now through late February. Start important projects, see people, ask favours, tackle formerly daunting tasks – you’re on a path to success! However, exercise some caution this week – people might talk, or a secret be exposed through Thursday: remain moral, and keep what’s private, private. This is not the best week to seek medical opinions/aid. The strong sexual and/or financial urges of the last three months ease now to mid-April – then will begin again. Rest Sunday. Conquer the world Monday/Tuesday! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Rest, retreat, contemplate and meditate. Your spiritual, charitable side needs to breathe, to act. Contact government agencies, institutions and company head offices. Seek therapy, advice. All this, Monday/Tuesday, and for four weeks. Take care through Thursday in relationships, investments, health and sex: others say the outlook is rosy, but you know the reality. Your relationships have been intense, exciting since mid-November. Now someone intriguing “backs off” to April. It’s just a pause – he/she needs to digest recent events. Success, Wednesday/Thursday! Chase money Friday. timstephens@shaw.ca
