Green light for mobile business licence
Squamish is the only city to beat our growth
BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
hilliwack entrepreneurs may soon need only a single business licence to ply their trade in the Fraser Valley. At the behest of Chamber of Commerce executive director Patti MacAhonic, council asked staff Tuesday to work with other Fraser Valley governments to develop what is known as an intermunicipal business licence. The idea is that mobile businesspeople who ply their trade in multiple cities— anyone from landscapers to photographers— would only need to obtain a single EB IRST business licence First reported on to comply with chilliwacktimes.com bylaws. Greater Vancouver and the Okanagan already have blanket business licences. MacAhonic played a promotional video by the BC Chamber of Commerce that claimed the business licence resulted in increased revenue for every one of the Okanagan communities in the year following its implementation. Some communities sold fewer licences, but the difference was made up by the $150 cost of the intermunicipal licence She told council that it will reduce the workload shouldered by city staff and cut the red tape endured by businesses. “It allows businesses—[for]

Chiefs fail to stop Vees from setting new mark for consecutive wins
BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
enticton Vees made hockey history at the expense of the Chilliwack Chiefs Tuesday at Prospera Centre. The Vees trounced the Chiefs 7-0 to win their 30th consecutive game and break the New Westminster Royals’ 22-year-old record. It didn’t matter that Mayor Sharon Gaetz did end up betting a box of corn on the Chiefs success (after getting Penticton mayor Dan Ashton to add a pair of local wines to the bet).
It didn’t matter that Prospera Centre was filled with scouts and media from Vancouver and beyond. It didn’t matter that a couple hundred Penticton fans hopped on busses to cheer on the Vees. And it didn’t matter that Chiefs fans didn’t pack Prospera Centre for their team. Mitch Gillam’s early heroics didn’t matter nor did Malcolm Gould’s missed breakaway late in the first period. What mattered was the Penticton Vees roster of stars and the Chiefs relative lack thereof. That’s not to discount the Chiefs. They are a solid BCHL hockey team that has performed well this year. But the Vees are the best Junior A team in Canada. They boast big, strong, talented players destined not just for American college programs but also—for at least a couple—the glitz and glamour of the National Hockey League. See CHIEFS, Page 19
hilliwack is the second-fastest growing metropolitan area in B.C., according to Census data released by Statistics Canada Wednesday. The area, which includes Harrison and Agassiz, saw a higher percentage of growth between 2006 and 2011 than any another metropolitan area in B.C. besides Squamish. The latest figures show Chilliwack’s population grew by 11.9 per cent over the last five years, compared to Squamish’s 14.6 per cent and Metro Vancouver’s 9.3 per cent. Metropolitan areas, however, aren’t the same as municipalities. When it comes to Census data, metropolitan areas are cities with populations of around 100,000 (with an urban core of at least 50,000) and include surrounding communities based on things like commuting patterns. On a municipal level, the District of Kent was actually the fastest growing community in the Chilliwack area with a growth rate of 19.5 per cent, making it the fourth-fastest growing community in B.C. after Langford (30.1 per cent), Lake Country (21.9 per cent) and Port Moody (19.9 per cent). As a municipality, Chilliwack’s population grew by 12.6 per cent for a total of 77,936. The Promontory/Eastern Hillsides area was the fastest growing part of See POPULATION, Page 6

Winnie the Pooh and Kendra Taylor get a booster whooping cough vaccination Tuesday at a Fraser Health clinic at Central elementary.
Prepared for pertussis outbreak Plenty of vaccine available locally
BY CORNELIA NAYLOR email@example.com
he Fraser Health Authority is extending whooping cough vaccination clinics in Chilliwack to protect people from an outbreak that began in Hope before Christmas. The clinics were scheduled to wrap up at the end of this week but will now be extended for another week and may be kept open longer depending on demand, according to Fraser Health spokesperson Roy Thorpe-Dorward. The Health Authority is also stockpiling 50,000 doses of vaccine to ensure it is prepared if the outbreak spreads farther west. As of Tuesday, 110 cases of the highly infectious disease, also known as pertussis had been reported in the eastern Fraser Valley, including eight in Chilliwack. A handful of whooping cough cases have also been reported in Maple Ridge, Langley and Surrey, but Fraser Health officials said it’s not clear whether these are cases that normally crop up year to year or are part of the spread of the outbreak. Chilliwack residents have been lin-
ing up the get the vaccine since Fraser Health expanded its pertussis alert to include Chilliwack, Agassiz and Harrison last month. “More cases are cropping up, so I’m thinking it’s a good thing, ” said Lisa Mindel, who got the shot Tuesday along with her 13-year-old daughter Meghan at a clinic at Central elementary. More than 2,000 people in the eastern Fraser Valley have been immunized at clinics and doctors’ offices since the outbreak began. “The best protection against pertussis is to get vaccinated,” said Paul Van Buynder, Fraser Health’s chief medical health officer in an earlier release. “Pertussis in very young children can lead to hospitalization and even death.” Whooping cough can be a severe illness in people without adequate immunization, and many adults are not protected because the vaccine they got as children is only effective for five to 10 years. Early symptoms are like those of a
cold with sneezing, a runny nose, a low fever and a mild cough, but over a week or two, the cough gets worse, leading to longer spells of coughing that often end with a whooping sound when the person breathes in. In rare cases, pertussis can cause pneumonia, convulsions, brain damage and death. Fraser Health is urging parents to ensure their children are fully immunized and is offering free booster vaccine to adults who are in regular contact with young children in Hope, Agassiz, Harrison Hot Springs and Chilliwack. Adults who have not had a booster in the last five years are asked to contact their local health unit, their doctor or health care provider to receive the free vaccine. ◗ For more information about whooping cough, visit www.healthlinkbc.ca.

orcelain toilets are sitting targets for vandals, according to City of Chilliwack parks, recreation and culture director Gord Pederson. City council received its 2011 vandalism report Tuesday and the news was good: Vandals cost city taxpayers $82,000 less in 2011 than the previous year. Streetlight wire theft, which had been the bane of the city, has been largely curtailed. In the final three months of 2011, the city incurred only $120.96 of costs related to wire theft. But the city recently had to shell out $2,415 to replace smashed toilets at Fairfield Island Sportsfield. They also spent $7,155 over the last three months of 2011 to repair or replace signs and posts damaged or stolen by vandals. But Pederson said the city is working to avoid future toilet trouble. “We have been hit by a rash of vandalism the last little while and unfortunately smashed toilets seem to be quite a popular one,” he said. The city uses a security company to patrol parks, and he said his department is also trying to make destruction more difficult by installing toilets and other facilities made of stainless steel. Mayor Sharon Gaetz was pleased by the numbers. “It’s a significant drop,” she said. “We have upgraded our infrastructure to make it more difficult to steal copper wire.”

It should also increase compliance rates, according to the chamber. MacAhonic said chamber officials and politicians in Abbotsford, Chilliwack, Langley, Pitt Meadows, Mission and Maple Ridge have all expressed their willingness to investigate a regionwide business licence. Council gave the go ahead to staff to participate in the talks. “We’ve talked about it for some time and [thanks for] presenting it to us and we look forward to seeing it in full operation,” Gaetz told MacAhonic.

Substation fire was costly, but valuable information was gained
BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
ire officials arriving on the scene at January’s substation blaze were told by a worker on the site that Chilliwack could be without power for weeks if the flames spread to a nearby control room. The information turned out to be incorrect, according to BC Hydro, but it caused fire crews to scramble to save the building in which the control room was located. Assistant fire chief Ian Josephson said that when crews arrived on the scene, they were told the structure adjacent to the flames should be a priority because of its importance to the local power grid. “One of their major concerns when
POPULATION, from page 1 the city, growing by almost 50 per cent. The numbers came as no surprise to city officials, who actually predicted Chilliwack’s population would be 82,000 by 2011. Mayor Sharon Gaetz believes that projection is accurate notwithstanding the recent Stats Can data. “Not everyone answers the census,” she said.
we arrived on scene was to protect the control room which was in the adjacent building to the transformer,” said Josephson. He said the worker told officials that “if that building went down, it could impact power to Chilliwack for two to three weeks. Fire crews acted on that information, but it turns out that the worker was misinformed. A BC Hydro spokesperson said power was restored to Chilliwack that day thanks to other intact substations. The spokesperson said that shows Chilliwack’s power would not have been out for weeks even if the substation’s control room had gone up in flames. Either way, the incident has prompted Chilliwack fire officials to start preparing for any similar fires in their future. In addition to requests for on-

Pressure on infrastructure But population growth doesn’t come without its challenges. The two most important issues in Chilliwack, according to Gaetz, are infrastructure funding and pressure on farmland. To address infrastructure, Gaetz said the city has adopted a policy of making development pay for itself through development cost charges.
To preserve farmland, she said the city has only two options: more development in the mountains and greater density in the valley. She said development in the hills will come with higher infrastructure costs, and not all single-family home dwellers in the urban areas will be happy about an apartment going up next door. But that will be the price of
“It becomes a major event pretty quick,” said Josephson of a fire at one of the facilities. The aim is to identify any challenges or special equipment needs now, before another fire, so crews can our burgeoning population. “It’s part of a growing city,” she said. Farther up the Fraser Valley, meanwhile, Hope saw a population decrease of 3.5 per cent, the fourthbiggest decrease in the province after Kitimat (-7.3 per cent). Overall, the latest Census figures show B.C.’s population increased by seven per cent between 2006 and 2011, pushing the population to 4.4 million, and making B.C. the second fastest growing province next to Alberta.
ounties hope the public can help them find a missing Chilliwack man last seen in late January. Charles Jiu Ngi Kon is described as a 67-year-old Asian man, five-foot-10, 133 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes. He was last seen buying a Greyhound ticket to Abbotsford on Jan. 26, shortly after 10 a.m. and he did get on the bus. But he did not purchase any other tickets to go to another destination from Abbotsford. He does not have a cellphone, nor a vehicle and is not believed to have any friends or family in Abbotsford. He has frequented China Town in Vancouver on occasion, but the police do not have any information that he has been there since his disappearance. Mounties say they are “extremely concerned for his safety.” ◗ Anyone with information on his whereabouts is asked to contact the Chilliwack RCMP at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800222-TIPS (8477).

Go ahead, laugh a little Ye Gads! Do you realize that one whole twelfth of 2012 is already gone? Finished. Kaput. An entire month gone by. It’s February, fer cryin’ out loud. How ridiculous is that? Only 11 months are left in this year and, next thing you know, we’ll be talking about how great 2012 was . . . or wasn’t. Unless the Mayans and other assorted whack-jobs turn out not to be whack-jobs after all . . . Like . . . What if they’re right? What if the world ends on Dec. 21, 2012? What if we won’t have a 2013 to look back on the joys and tribulations of 2012? What if, as we approach the end of 2012, the nuts, loonies, and charlatans win the bet? What if we end. Here’s the weirdest question of all—based on that Zen concept of trees falling in the forest and the sounds they make, or don’t make: If the world ends on the winter solstice this year, and humanity ceases to exist… will we ever have existed? If nobody knows we’re here, and nobody learns that we were—and if none of us is left to tell some phantasmagorical
Be Our Guest alien race that may happen upon the burned-out hulk of the earth we’ve left behind . . . If our civilization falls in the far reaches of our galaxy without anyone nearby to hear us . . . Have we made a sound? Whoa! Too deep inside my head now. Let’s turn to laughter instead. Just in case you’re not laughing already. At me. If you are, it’s OK. You’re not laughing at me, you’re laughing with me. That way, we’ll both live longer. (OK, that’s supposing the whole Mayan calendar thing doesn’t happen, I know, but really . . . doesn’t that just make you laugh?) Studies show that laughter makes both the laugher and the laughed at healthier—providing the laughed-at is both laugher and laughee, as well. It’s a double-edged sword . . . albeit a Nerf sword. Study after study has shown that, while laughter may not
really be the “best medicine,” it certainly is good medicine. And it works best if you can aim at least some of that laughter at yourself. That makes sense, when you think about it, because if you make yourself laugh, you’re getting the benefit from both edges of that Nerf sword. A lot of it makes sense, indeed. Consider some of the people who get the best benefits from laughter—like the billionaires who get to laugh all the way to the bank . . . while the rest of us rarely can afford more than a nervous giggle at the ATM machine. Now, laughter and money are not necessarily perfect partners on opposite sides of an equal sign. But they do live together quite nicely. Of course, we’ve been trained to believe that money is a hardship . . . that the rich are “burdened” by their money, and many poor folk go happily about their lives amidst squalor—no money, no cares, eh? And indeed, you can live with little money, but without laughter . . . why bother? Might just as well be Dec. 21, 2012. ◗ Bob Groeneveld is the editor of the Langley Advance.
anada’s universal pension plan is under attack once again. But is it being attacked by the global economy that is proving too difficult for many nations to cope already? Is the attack coming from the realities of our national demographics (in just a few decades’ time, each Canadian pensioner, currently supported by four working people, will need more money while their financial support diminishes to two working people each)? Is the attack coming from a prime minister bolstered by a Conservative majority government—a majority won in an election that never once touched on the subject of pension reform—and a prime minister with a penchant for strutting for the admiration of fellow world leaders? Or is the attack really coming from politicking opposition parties looking to discredit their nemesis, without consideration for political, demographic, and economic realities? Wherever the attack is coming from, it’s scaring the heck out of a lot of seniors—and especially hard-working Canadians who find themselves approaching a now-decidedly uncertain pension age-bracket. Surely, there are better solutions to the approaching pension dilemma than forcing later retirement on those who are already physically hard-pressed to make it to age 65. Prime Minister Stephen Harper feels Canada has enough money to spend billions on prisons of questionable value. There are billionaires in this country who pay less taxes than middle-class workers. Well-off seniors who don’t need pensions get them anyway. There has to be a better plan than scrimping on the seniors who are already pinching every penny to survive on slim pensions after a lifetime of building a strong, profitable country. If Harper has such a plan, he should come clean now. The speculation he set in motion at Davos is spiraling into worst-case scenarios that are heightening fears for seniors who already have enough scary stuff to deal with every time they compare their bank accounts to their costs of daily living.

Editor: This is a response to Solms Coutinho’s letter in the Jan 31 Times. I was very pleased to read articles in the Chilliwack newspaper recently about the wishes of parents to improve French immersion programs in our schools. But I really do not know where Coutinho is coming from, with his letter, since our two official languages in Canada are still English and French. Europe and the Second World War have nothing to do with this matter. He wrote that less than one per cent of our population speaks French but Statisque Canada says there is a proportion of six per cent French people and 27 per cent speaking other languages in B.C. in their last report in 2006. If we go by Coutinho’s reasoning, our students should be learning Chinese or Punjabi, not Spanish or German. The reality, Coutinho, is that you live in Canada and we have two cultures, “n’en vous déplaise.” When I wanted to learn a third language years ago, I went to a private school and paid the fees from my

Letter devalued French efforts Editor: I am a Grade 12 French immersion student attending Sardis secondary, and I am very disappointed by Mr. Coutinho’s letter that disparages the French language and Francophone people in Canada. Perhaps he should research the topic before making groundless claims that insult and devalue a quarter of our country’s population. Whether Mr. Coutinho likes it or not, French is spoken by

nearly nine million Canadians and has been designated as an official language of our country. It is also the secondmost widespread language in the world, right behind English. In Europe, it is spoken in more countries and by more individuals than both German and Spanish. Saying that only British culture is responsible for the historical advancement of Canada ignores the influences of effective Francophone leaders such as Laurier, St. Laurent, Trudeau, and popular heroes such as Maurice Richard and Louis Riel. Francophone Canadians have also served with honour in our military, defending our freedom for as long as we’ve been a nation. These are but a few of many examples I could cite of French Canadians who’ve made a significant impact on our history. During the Second World War, the French resistance was instrumental in diverting Nazi resources and attention from the British, forcing the enemy to expend more resources searching for partisans instead of attacking elsewhere. Ignoring their contribution to the war effort diminishes the valor of a nation whose fighting spirit was never extinguished, even after being vanquished by invaders. I am one of 275,000 French immersion students in BC, and I’m proud that I’ve had the opportunity to learn the other official language of Canada. I wish people like Mr. Coutinho would join us in celebrating our Canadian heritage. Tristan Rabello Chilliwack

Hey Guys ... Feeling A Little Old ? W
hen men are young, their hormones hum along beautifully and their testosterone levels are in abundance. This is why young men are recognized for their muscularity, strength and virility.
But as we age, men often experience a body transition with advancing age known as Andropause. Andropause is often described as “... a noticeable decline in male hormone levels, often with the accompaniment of high estrogen levels.” As a-matter-of-fact, men become so good at producing estrogen with age, that it is not uncommon for a man of retirement age to have more estrogen in his body than a woman of the exact same age! Aside from manufacturing excess estrogen (which causes muscle loss and a gain in body fat), men also experience an increase in a very harmful form of estrogen (known as 16-alpha hydroxy estrone), which increases the risk of prostate cancer and makes it extremely difﬁcult to maintain a healthy metabolism.

Editor: I am responding to the “Seeking input on the Jumps” article that was in the ChilliwackTimes Feb. 2. I am clarifying my comments that were quoted. I was not aware of all the details at that time, I have been informed since then, as I have communicated with other stakeholders. I am not against a bike park in Chilliwack. In fact, I am very excited that Chilliwack is taking the initiative to rebuild the bike park that was taken down on Sheffield Way. I feel the location of this new bike park is not optimal, but I am excited a new bike park is being built. I am looking forward to seeing its completion. Mike Dekoning Chilliwack

he Chilliwack secondary senior boys basketball team looks well poised to take revenge on cross-town AAA rivals Sardis secondary this Friday. The Storm conceded the first round of the battle of Chilliwack 60-46 when the teams clashed in their first league tilt at Sardis last month. But since then the Chilliwack boys have found their groove, winning four games in a row. They beat Abbotsford Collegiate 65-59 last Monday, single-A Unity Christian (ranked 10th in the province) 64-49 last Tuesday, Yale 60-59 last Thursday and

Chilliwack secondary’s Gary McCrea powers a ball past two Robert Bateman opponents during AAA boys basketball action in Abbotsford Monday.
Robert Bateman 69-61 this Monday. The squad took on Yale again last night ( Wednesday) but no score was available by press time. “If we can somehow win our remaining three games, we have a chance to win our league, which would be huge,” said CSS assistant coach Chris Reilly before the game Tuesday. On the other side of the freeway, the Falcons have fared less well since facing the Storm. They lost to Yale 82-59 last Thursday and were hoping to notch a win last night against Abbotsford Collegiate (no score by press time) before taking on Chilliwack again. Coming as it does near the end of the regular season, the crosstown Sardis-CSS clash promises to provide plenty of intensity as both teams try to claw their way up the standings and avoid a do-or-die situation in the first round of the playoffs. ◗ The game tips off Friday at 8 p.m. in the CSS gym.

Learn to travel light and you will always live in the moment
f you spend any time travelling you quickly learn that there is an art to packing your suitcase. It usually takes a few trips to get it right. Rookie traveller’s usually make the mistake of packing way more than they need. They attempt to calculate their fashion and hygiene needs by submitting to the “just in case” fallacy. That is, they begin to tell themselves that they should bring more clothing than they need “just in case” they spill on themselves or have to attend an unscheduled formal banquet. They bring their own shampoo, soap and hair dryer “just in case” the hotel doesn’t have any. All four seasons of apparel are carefully packed and by the time they are ready to leave, it takes a hydraulic clamp to close their luggage. It only takes a few trips to realize that seasoned travelers don’t have two suitcases, a garment bag and a laptop case hanging off their shoulders. They simply board a plane carrying a newspaper and a small carry-on that fits easily into the overhead baggage compartment. These travellers have learned the secret to travelling light. I think God wants us to do the same. He wants us to travel light, which means living in the moment. Travelling light is living in the now rather than what might be. Jesus knew that we would drift towards carrying a lot of baggage, believing that it would save us from those “just in case” moments, but all it really does is weigh us down. God knows that when we worry about
tomorrow we’re going to have a hard time dealing with today. Worry steals our joy and fuels our stress. Worry makes us believe that today doesn’t matter. Worry always makes tomorrow our priority. Worry is heavy and is very difficult to pack! That’s why the Bible tells us not to do it! Jesus said in his famous Sermon on the Mount, “Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?” (Matthew 6:26). Jesus is reminding us that God values you more than anything. He cares about you and longs to show you how to live your life without the bulky bag of worry. He knows what you need tomorrow. He’s not surprised by what’s coming your way and if you let him, He’ll take care of you. If you can embrace this truth it has the potential to change your life. So why not give God control. Commit to travelling light. Rid yourself of those things that keep you down and hold you back. Stop packing worry around. All it does is get in the way of enjoying the journey. So what do you need to unpack? What do you need to throw out? Maybe it’s time to take inventory about what worries you and give it to God. Let Him help you rethink your journey and then ask him to show you what you need to leave behind. I guarantee that God’s way of packing will be a lot lighter than what you’re carrying right now.

Fusion squads finish strong at CheerFest
hilliwack’s Fusion Athletics cheerleading squad had a strong showing at last weekend’s CheerFest Competition in Abbotsford. Six Fusion teams took to the floor and placed well in their divisions. Fusion Fire placed first in the Mini division, Fever claimed second place out of six teams in the youth division. Fusion Fierce (ages 12
Vees too much for Chiefs
to 14) grabbed first place in the junior division while Fusion Force placed second in the Senior 2 division. Fusion Frenzy finished second in Junior level 3 and Fusion Bombshell placed fourth out of eight squads in Senior level 3. Since moving to their new gym, Fusion has grown and added more teams.
Chrysler Fivers win Brad Beckett Memorial
he O’Connor Chrysler Fivers claimed victory at the midget Brad Beckett Memorial Tournament played last weekend in Chilliwack. The Fivers knocked off the Surrey Predators 4-1 in the final, with team captain Mitchell Penner named the most valuable player. The Fivers won seven games in a row to win the tournament. They were led throughout
their tournament by their two goaltenders. Joe Ryan posted three wins, including two shutouts, and allowed just two goals. Jarrod Hildenbrandt posted four wins, one shutout, and allowed just four goals. Chilliwack Midget squads C3 and C6 also made the semifinal of the tournament, which included 20 participating teams.
Free time just got sweeter.
CHIEFS, from page 1 And all that talent was on full display in the first period of Tuesday’s game. The Vees stormed from the gate and barely let the Chiefs touch the puck. Were it not for Gillam, Penticton could have posted four or five goals in the first 15 minutes. As it was, Penticton sniper Wade Murphy notched his 31st goal of the season nine minutes into the first period. The rest seemed inevitable. Chilliwack tried to bully the Vees, mixing it up in multiple goalmouth scrums. But Penticton wasn’t deterred and Travis St. Denis scored with three minutes left in the first period to stretch the lead to two. Gould missed an opportunity to cut the lead in half late in the period when he broke in on a breakaway flicked EB IRST and his backFirst reported on hand wide. chilliwacktimes.com But to call the Chiefs unlucky would be to ignore the shot clock, which showed Penticton outshooting Chilliwack 17-4 after just 20 minutes. The Vees proceeded to cruise to their record, scoring early and late in the second period and then putting three more goals on the board in a final stanza punctuated by a pair of fights with just over five minutes left in the game. As the buzzer sounded, the Vees mobbed their goalie, saluted their rowdy fans, and then headed to their dressing room to celebrate and pose for a team picture. But while all the media coverage will surround the Vees win, the Chiefs’ loss may be more significant in the long run. The Vernon Vipers beat the Trail Smoke Eaters Tuesday to tie the Chiefs for the fourth and final playoff spot in the Interior Conference. The two teams square off twice more this season, including Saturday at Prospera Centre. Both clubs are three points back of the Prince George Spr uce K ings. All three squads have just 13 games remaining.

Love nibbles for Valentine’s
also been considered aphrodisiacs for many years, and some argue it is because they are a good source of zinc, which contributes to maintaining male potency and fertility. However, there are many other foods high in zinc that are not considered aphrodisiacs such as lima beans, lentils and spinach; and I don’t believe making your sweetheart a stir-fry of these ingredients will give a romantic impression. Cayenne pepper and spicy foods also play a large role as aphrodisiacs because they increase heart rates, blood flow, and perspiration. Some say that endorphins are also released during this process and thus give one a natural high and pleasurable feeling. Champagne or sparkling wine is considered the drink of lovers, but one can also use nonalcoholic sparkling grape juice as an alternative. Alcohol can lower ones inhibitions and thus be regarded as an aphrodisiac, but the tiny bubbles, even in nonal-

coholic alternatives, are said to be very seductive. Regardless of what you choose to serve, staying in for a romantic dinner can be accomplished with little effort and some creative planning. There is one last ingredient I should mention that is believed to be an aphrodisiac: garlic—when eaten by both people. It is, however, considered a prophylactic when eaten by just one. Dear Chef Dez: I want to make chocolate covered strawberries for dessert for a Valentine’s dinner, but the last time I tried making them it was a disaster. Even though I took them out of the refrigerator ahead of time, the chocolate was still too hard and it broke off the berries with the first bite and fell onto the plate. What am I doing wrong? Chris D. Abbotsford Dear Chris: When melting your chocolate for dipping, melt butter in with the chocolate as well. Room temperature butter is much softer than room temperature chocolate, and thus will create a more palatable bite and will adhere to the berries. I normally add 50 per cent of the weight of chocolate being used with butter.
hat better time of year is there to talk about aphrodisiacs than at Valentine’s Day? Aphrodisiacs can be foods that psychologically and/or scientifically help us feel, well “in the mood” for lack of better words. The search for the perfect combination is the desire of many on the 14th of February. Although each person’s own food preferences play the biggest influence on this romantic journey of cuisine, we will focus on some classic ingredients that fall into this category. The first ingredient that comes to mind is chocolate, and I am certain that many will agree. With its velvety smooth melting texture, this sweet addition to dessert choices will usually win over any other. Chocolate has been scientifically proven to contain ingredients such as phenylethylamine and serotonin: two chemicals that stimulate pleasure senses in the brain. This, plus the natural stimulant effect from the caffeine, makes for a wonderfully seductive and addictive ingredient. Fresh imported strawberries are usually available this time of year and having them dipped in chocolate makes for the perfect finish to a romantic meal. Oysters and caviar have

Wit as dry as a martini
herlock Holmes fans should brace themselves for the cleverly written theatrical comedy Antoine Feval. Chris Gibbs delivers a deliciously funny performance on the Main Stage at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre Feb. 16 at 8 p.m. Presented by The Chilliwack Arts and Cultural Centre Society, this “shaggy dog” style of comedic theatre introduces us to Victorian England’s most overlooked detective—Antoine Feval—in a story told by his Watson-like sidekick Barnaby Gibbs. With a show that delights from beginning to end, Gibbs will have the audience howling as he charms with his witty British humour in this brilliant comedic performance. CBC said Gibbs’s performance as the witless and self-deprecating Barnaby was “near flawless. His martini-dry wit is characteristically sharp, in both script and performance, and his comic timing is beautiful.” Set in 1896 England, the daft sidekick stumbles upon a thief while
‘Shaggy dog’ style delivers both ridiculous and intelligent laughs checking in on a friend’s empty house. Oddly enough the man is writing a poem about sapphires while holding a bag full of stolen goods. Gibbs is told by the thieving stranger that he is actually the famous detective Antoine Feval investigating the crime. Not clueing in that his new partner is in fact the master thief known as the Rhyming Bandit, Gibbs teams with Feval to forge a new crime-fighting duo and the adventures begin. Written in a way that manages to be both ridiculous and intelligent, Chris Gibbs has created a masterpiece. Performed in the “shaggy dog” style, which generally features an extensive narration of typically irrelevant incidents (usually resulting in a pointless or absurd punch line), Gibbs engrosses us with the mishaps that ensue. This comedic style plays upon the audience’s preconceptions of the art of joke-telling in an
entertaining and clever way. With his effortlessly natural stand-up and improv skills, combined with a charming irreverence for the rules of theatre, this tour de force unfolds at an exhilarating pace and delivers an amusing performance sure to have the audience in hysterics. Chris Gibbs began his career in 1991 as a street performer in London and evolved into a touring stand-up comedian and improviser. With five award-winning shows that he has written and performed, this multitalented comedian has been seen as a regular guest on NBC’s comedy series Howie Do It, played at Just For Laughs and the Winnipeg Comedy Festival, starred in the Canadian indie feature Run Robot Run, and is a published author. Gibbs made Canada his permanent home in 2002 and started touring with his one-man stand-up show
Gibberish. He co-authored a self-help book entitled The Power of Ignorance: 14 Steps To UsingYour Ignorance and put on a one-man show, The Power of Ignorance. Antoine Feval premiered at the 2005 Winnipeg Fringe Festival, thrilling audiences and selling out every seat available for the whole run, winning Best of Fest. It has won multiple awards including Best Comedy at the Montreal Fringe and the Just For Laughs Best Comedy Award and sold out the Toronto Fringe. Get ready for a good hearty laugh from start to finish as Gibbs moves seamlessly with brilliant comic timing, in and out of scripted and improvised material. ◗ Purchase your tickets early for Antoine Feval by calling the Cultural Centre Box Office at 604-391SHOW(7469).

(nee Swanson), passed away peacefully, February 3, 2012 in her 87th year. Born in Trochu, Alberta July 25, 1925, Anne will be greatly missed by her husband Herbert to whom she had been married for 63 years, by her children Lorraine (Dave Stevens), Allan (Judy), Leslie (Joan), Dorothy, and by her 13 grandchildren and 12 greatgrandchildren. She is survived by 2 sisters, 7 sister- and brotherin-laws. Anne grew up in the Three Hills area of Alberta, then moved to Vancouver where she later met and married Herb. Eventually they settled in Sardis/Chilliwack in 1957. Family & friends were very important to Anne and Herb and their home was always open to one and all. They loved camping and traveled to many different parts of Canada and the world to visit family and enjoy the sights. Anne very much enjoyed gardening, canning, baking, and sharing her hospitality with everyone she could. Anne had been employed at the Coqualeetza Hospital and at Sears. Many knew Anne through her volunteer work for many years at the hospital service league, the MCC, and the Chilliwack Alliance Church, where as a member she was actively involved for over 50 years. She prayed for and encouraged others to rely on God no matter what their circumstances were. She wanted others to know the joy and hope that she had found in her relationship with God through Christ. Her life was marked by a strong faith in and reliance on Christ, whom she proclaimed as her Saviour, and in whose care she rests. Visitation: Mon, Feb 13, 2012, 6-9pm Woodlawn Funeral Home 45865 Hocking Ave Graveside Service: Tues 12:30 pm at Legion Cemetery, Chilliwack Mountain Cemetery A Celebration of Anne’s Life will be held on Tuesday, February 14th, 2012, 2pm, Chilliwack Alliance Church 8700 Young Rd. Donations can be made in Anne’s honour to the work of her friends Jim and Vegas Dargatz. Their work enables 400 children in Peru to attend a 6 week camp each year. Mailing address: SIM Canada, 10 Huntingdale Blvd. Scarborough, ON M1W 2S5 Designate: “Project 89270, Camp La Joya, in memory of Annie Hack” Alternately, donations can be made to the BC Lung Association 2675 Oak Street Vancouver, BC V6H 2K2 Anne’s family wishes to thank everyone for their love and encouragement at this time.
