ity council’s demolition reprieve for the Paramount Theatre has bought the grassroots group that want to save the building some time. But more will be needed for the Save the Paramount working group to come up with enough money and a business plan. “The 90 days is not enough time to truly get it to the level that we want to get it to,” said Sam Waddington, one of the central figures in the growing Save the Paramount group. “However, I think we can go back with a ton of legwork done and enough public backing that it will be difficult for city council to kibosh it at that point.”

ocal ICBC officials say the use of bait cars along with the Chilliwack RCMP’s prolific offender program have helped slash the number of car thefts in Chilliwack to a point not seen in more than a decade. Two hundred cars were stolen in Chilliwack in 2011, down 50 from 2010. Since 2003, when 720 cars were stolen in Chilliwack, the number of car thefts has dropped by 72 per cent. The number of thefts from vehicles has also declined 65 EB IRST per cent. First reported on I C B C ’s M i k e chilliwacktimes.com Weightman says the increase in the number of cars with factoryinstalled immobilizers has also helped. “It’s been very satisfying,” said Weightman about watching the numbers plummet. “We are pleased to see these results and can credit our crime reduction unit as well as our CO M P S TAT p ro g ra m f o r t h e decreases,” added RCMP Const. Tracy Wolbeck. “Property crime is a priority that has been outlined in our three-year strategic plan. It’s nice to see we are allocating our resources where it’s necessary and it’s making an impact.” The numbers are finally back below where they were in 2000, when 220 cars were reported stolen.

Ad hoc autism committee a no-go for now

BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

A

group of parents pushing for an ad hoc committee on autism education in the Chilliwack school district left a school board meeting Tuesday disappointed once more. Trustees voted down an attempt by trustee Heather Maahs to get a motion for a committee on to the agenda. The decision drew an emotional response. “It is my belief that, as these concerns are legitimate, they will not go away,” said parent Ben Besler to trustees. Besler choked up as he described the success his autistic daughter has had in the district this year but said other parents aren’t getting the same professionalism and consistency for their kids. His daughter’s education assistant, Kathi Friesen, brought her concerns about autism education to the board last month and said the district needs more consistency and accountability when it comes to teaching students with the disorder. Tonya Padgett, another parent who spoke at the meeting, agrees. “Everyday I send my two neurotypical children to school secure in the knowledge that they are going to get a consistent education during their day,” she said. “I know I’m not going to have to call the school See AUTISM, Page 11

pipeline that carries hundreds of thousands of barrels of crude oil a day underneath Chilliwack farmers’ fields, school yards, suburban lawns, theVedder River and even a golf course may be twinned, a project that could be disruptive to property owners and the city. With national and international attention from media, environmentalists, First Nations and the oil industry focused upon Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline project, Kinder Morgan’s proposed $3.8 billion twinning of its 1,150-kilometre Trans Mountain pipeline—built in 1953 and running through Chilliwack—has gone virtually unnoticed. From Oct. 20, 2011, to Feb. 16, the company held what is called an “open season” to gauge commercial interest from customers who would use the pipeline. On Feb. 21, company president Ian Anderson said a final decision on moving the project to the design stage will be made by the end of March. He also said the project, which would double the current capacity of 300,000 barrels per day (BPD) to 600,000 BPD, could be completed before the controversial Northern Gateway project, which will have a capacity of 550,000 BPD. That project would take crude to a deepwater port at Kitimat on British Columbia’s northern coast, and it could be a rival to the Trans Mountain line. However, Northern Gateway is in the early stages of a two-year regulatory process and is opposed by Canadian aboriginal groups and environmental organizations. Enbridge does not expect construction to be complete before 2017. Company spokeswoman Lexa Hobenshield said Kinder Morgan aims to complete its project plan and design by the end of March. “The decision to go ahead will lead into a two-year environmental assessment and consultations with First Nations and other stakeholders,” she said. The application to the NEB would be based in part on that information. “There’s a lot of due diligence from commercial, to regulatory to the communities and stakeholders,” Hobenshield said. None of that consultation has yet begun at Chilliwack city hall as news of the company’s planned pipeline plans came as a surprise to both Mayor Sharon Gaetz and senior staff. But the project is on the radar of some jurisdictions, as well as the Union of B.C. Municipalities (UBCM). An emergency resolution was passed at the UBCM conference in

value effects after a holding tank leaked 110,000 litres of crude oil on Jan. 24. “After the recent oil spill, there is intensified community concern about the risks associated with this industry,” said John Vissers, an Abbotsford neighbour of the terminal. “We had just confronted the company about the need to improve their existing operations, and yet without giving us any confirmation that improvements will happen they start taking about expansion.” Chilliwack resident Sheila Muxlow worked in Alberta for the Sierra Club of Canada and fought, among other things, for the protection of waterways

October 2011 urging the National Energy Board (NEB), Port Metro Vancouver and “all appropriate” federal ministers to ensure any application to expand the amount of oil transported by pipeline and tanker be subject to the “highest degree” of environmental assessment. It also called for meaningful public consultation, including direct engagement with affected municipalities, regional authorities and B.C. First Nations. In Abbotsford, residents who live near Kinder Morgan’s Sumas Mountain terminal site are concerned about health, environmental and property

from oil extraction in the tar sands. Now, back home in Greendale, she couldn’t ignore the Abbotsford leak and the proposed expansion of the pipeline in her home town. “I think that there has to at the very least be a public hearing and some serious meaningful consultation with the city,” she told theTimes. Burnaby Mayor Derek Corrigan said residents of his community will have concerns, especially given the 2007 rupture of Kinder Morgan’s pipeline in the Westridge neighbourhood, which sprayed nearby homes with crude oil after a contractor struck the line. “I know that was a traumatic incident for the residents, but it affected the rest of the city, too, because they saw that what had seemed a fairly benign presence could have a serious impact,” he said. “There’s no way you can prevent accidents from happening. The question is what do you do when it occurs and have you put in the proper processes and procedures to ensure it doesn’t turn into a disaster?” The company says pipelines are as safe or safer than other modes of oil transportation. “There is no question that safe operations is an important part of ongoing dialogue,” company spokesperson Lexi Hobenshield said. “The fact is that any industry faces risks, but the risks to our business are manageable with good regulation, good technology, safe practices and industry best practices. This is why, statistically speaking, the pipeline industry is the safest way to move products over long distances when compared to other means of transport.” In Chilliwack, the pipeline runs in a southwest direction, crossing to the south side of Highway 1 at Upper Prairie Road. It runs under farmland and hits the core of Sardis just south of Stevenson Road, runs underneath Kinkora Golf Course and crosses Vedder Road south of South Sumas Road. For much of the route it parallels the BC Hydro line and then runs underneath the sportsfield at Watson elementary and through the backyards of a number of homes. Director of engineering David Blain said the city hasn’t been contacted about the project and that because the pipeline is regulated by a federal agency, municipal permission isn’t required. ◗ As part of the “alarm-raising” about Kinder Morgan’s pipeline plans, a screening of the film White Water, Black Gold, which addresses the link between water pollution and tar sands oil extraction, is scheduled for March 20, 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., at the University of the Fraser Valley Chilliwack campus, room A203. Cost is a suggested donation of $5 to $10 but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. - with files from Vancouver Sun and Burnaby Now

Fire dept. lauds change to bylaw BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

F

ire alarms triggered 28 per cent fewer responses by the Chilliwack Fire Department in 2011 compared to the previous year, which officials say is directly attributable to a bylaw passed last spring. Last April, CFD chief Rick Ryall reported to council that nearly onethird of all department responses the previous year were to fire alarms. Ryall noted that of 717 residential security alarms between 2007 and 2011, just five were the result of smoke or fire in the house. That prompted city hall to pass a bylaw that gave alarm companies the ability to call residents within 90 seconds of a fire alarm being triggered and ensure that the situation was under control. Last year, the fire department responded to 144 fewer fire alarms than the previous year, according to the CFD’s annual fire report, which

was presented to council Tuesday. Assistant fire chief Ian Josephson said the bylaw had an immediate impact. “The bylaw came into effect in April and by June we began seeing a decrease in the number of singlefamily [house] alarms,” Josephson told the Times. Previously liability issues forced fire alarm companies to contact the fire department without checking on the homeowners. “Essentially, if Mrs. Brown burns her toast, she can call the monitoring company, or they can call her, and clear it up,” said Josephson. That saves the fire department money and reduces the likelihood that firefighters will be attending to a false alarm when a real blaze breaks out. Far fewer burning complaints Burning complaints also dropped substantially in 2011 from the previous year. Josephson and the annual report attributes the 13-per-cent drop to increased enforcement and education. Other highlights from the annual report: The overall number of fire department responses was down slightly

THEFTS, from page 1

File/TIMES

Firefighters responded to 2,149 calls for service in 2011, down from 2,228 in 2010. Eleven electrical fires were reported in 2011. from 2010. Firefighters responded to a total of 2,149 calls for service, down from 2,228 the previous year. Of those calls, Chilliwack’s paid-oncall firefighters assisted in 31 per cent of those, with the busiest firefighting unit based out of Hall No. 1 on Cheam Avenue; One hundred twenty paid-on-call (POC) firefighters worked a total of 18,950 hours for Chilliwack. At an average hourly rate of $22.58, the city city spent $428,062 on POC firefighters; The city purchased a $666,304 water tower apparatus and pumper engine; The most common cause of residential fire in Chilliwack is deemed

to be “electrical.” Eleven such fires were reported in 2011. Other common causes of fire are, in order of frequency: smoker’s materials (eight fires); cooking (six fires); arson (five fires); torch/heat guns (four fires); and driers (three fires); Fire caused $4 million of damage last year, up marginally from $3.93 million in 2010, but still the secondlowest damage toll since 2004; The actual operating cost of the CFD worked out to $4.8 million in 2011, for a per capita cost of $58.54. In 2008, the city spent $3.61 million on firefighting; The department reported no fatalities and 16 fire injuries in 2011, none of which included firefighters.

start of the decade, car thefts came to plague the Fraser Valley. “2003 was an incredible year across the board,” said Weightman. And he doesn’t mean “incredible” in a good way. Between the start of 2001 and the end of 2003, car thefts tripled in Chilliwack. Thefts from vehicles also rose sharply, reaching a peak of 850 in 2005. ICBC and the RCMP have been working for eight years to regain control over the situation. It appears to have worked, especially when it comes to thefts from vehicles—which are down 46 per cent from 2000, before the spike in vehicle property crime. Of course, that doesn’t mean vehicles can be left unlocked. Weightman says that thieves continue to roam Chilliwack streets and particularly target densely populated areas or parking lots. “Unfortunately, it’s onestop shopping for some of these guys,” he said.

Midzain questions logic of adding two more academies Sardis secondary gets golf, while Strathcona gets hockey academy

BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he Chilliwack school board approved two more sports academies Tuesday, giving the thumbs up to a golf academy at Sardis secondary and a hockey academy at Strathcona elementary. They were the second and third academies the board has approved since being elected in November, bringing the total number in the district to seven. The proliferation prompted Strathcona principal Bob Young to quip, “It seems like academies are sort of the flavour of this year.” Chilliwack Teachers’ Association president Katharin Midzain, however, chastised trustees for approving so many academies without considering their impact on public education, which she said should be free, accessible and equal for all. “You need to really, seriously look at the direction that the school district is going in when you continually approve these just because it’s an easy checkmark off the agenda,” she said. Midzain called the academies “elitist” and

said she would be forwarding trustees her concerns. Because schools can charge fees for academies, she said, some children are excluded despite processes that might be in place to allow them to participate, like bursaries or outside funding. She also took issue with academies that don’t accept students who don’t meet certain requirements. “We heard a principal say… ‘I can’t take a kid who doesn’t know how to skate,’” she said, referring to Young’s presentation for the Strathcona hockey academy. “Well, we take kids who don’t know how to read all the time.” The academies also have an impact on other teachers, she said. Because class sizes in some academies are small (like the Vedder middler outdoor education academy, which will have about 12 students) other classes during the academy blocks are more crowded, she said. “Every kid has to have a class in that block, so it creates this domino effect to staffing,” she said. The use of specialized instructors who aren’t public school teachers is also an issue for Midzain. “We’re subcontracting teacher work,” she said. Although she stopped short of saying the board should do away with academies altogether, Midzain said she wants the board to think carefully about their impact. “I don’t think it’s the direction that is conducive to free and accessible education for all students,” she said.

GRAND OPENING

Answer: Botox Cosmetic® is an injectable treatment derived from a purified protein and works by relaxing the muscles that cause the dynamic wrinkles, giving your face a more relaxed and refreshed appearance. Regular use of this simple treatment will soften expression lines and prevents the further deepening of lines.

Botox® is a safe FDA approved treatment. A tiny amount of Botox® is injected precisely into the muscle that is being treated. A very fine needle is used so that the pain associated with the injection is minimal. It is a very quick simple procedure with no downtime. You can expect results within a few days and the effect usually lasts from 3-6 months. Dr. Marianna Snyman

Chilliwack man killed in Fraser Canyon crash A

Chilliwack man died Monday in a Highway 1 head-on collision in the Fraser Canyon. Mounties say the crash occurred as the 78-year-old man drove south on Highway 1 approaching the Ferrabee Tunnel, just south of Hell’s Gate. Police say the man lost control of the van he was driving and was hit by a northbound semi truck. The truck driver attempted to

avoid the van and hit the cement retainers on the side of the road. The collision between the two vehicle caused what Mounties called “catastrophic damage” to the van. The Chilliwack man was dead at the scene while the truck driver was taken to Fraser Canyon Hospital. Mounties say weather may have been a factor in the crash. ◗ Any witnesses are asked to contact Fraser Valley Traffic Services at 604-702-4039.

What is Belly Fat?

Belly fat is comprised of mainly visceral or omentum fat. This fat is different than subcutaneous fat (the fat you can pinch). Omentum fat is the least desirable fat on the body because of the way it packs itself around vital organs. The loss of belly fat, will promote much better health. How much Belly Fat is too much? Measure your waist across your belly button. The general rule is... the total inches around your belly should be half or less than your height. If you are 5’6” or 66 inches, your waist should be 33 inches or less.

The Science Behind Safflower Oil In a controlled study, researchers examined the health effects of safflower oil on overweight, diabetic and postmenopausal women... • Safflower Oil was found to be superior in belly fat loss, fasting glucose, insulin and increasing adiponectin levels. • The study group lost up to 9.4% belly fat. • Levels of the important belly fat hormone, Adiponectin, increased an average of 20.3%. Ideal for both men and women, SafSlim is the first-ever high linoleic Safflower Oil supplement that specifically targets the unhealthy fat that accumulates around the belly. In a major study SafSlim, significantly reduced belly fat an average of 6.3%. If you are concerned about your waistline bulge, you should try SafSlim. 450 mL

Blood, film & memories I have a roll of black-and-white film in my Minolta Maxxum 7000 and I can’t wait to get it developed. I hadn’t used the camera for more than a decade but decided to try it out with some film that was sitting in my refrigerator’s butter drawer. How it works is this, kids: You look through the lens of the camera using the settings you have chosen, then you focus, click the shutter, and hope you got what you meant to get. After you’ve shot the entire roll, you take it out of the camera, bring it to your local lab, wait a few days until you can pick up the photos and see the results. Neat eh? For most people under the age of 30, and some of us even older, this is an antiquated, foreign way of taking photographs. I have to admit after snapping photos with the camera at my daughter’s second birthday party, my compulsion was to look at the back of the camera. But there was no instant gratification . . . or disapointment, for that matter. When I was at journalism school, digital photography had all but taken over the newspaper industry. Despite this, and despite the fact that we didn’t use typewriters or learn shorthand, it was early days with digital. The program I attended at Langara College quaintly lingered with film. Instructor and Province photographer Les Baszo had us shoot film and even learn how to develop it.

PAUL J. HENDERSON

SimplyA Musing There is a certain musty mystery to the darkroom: a magical place where, if done correctly, you can see the image you photographed appear before your eyes under that eerie red light. The hands-on, chemical burning, slowly-forming darkroom image seems so much more earned than the instantaneous, back-of-the-camera digital one. I remember my first time in the dakroom with a fellow student. She and I were in the tiny blacked out room within the darkroom trying our hand at transferring film from the canister to a metal reel for processing. I used an old metal can opener to crack open the plastic case the film was in. I fumbled to start the film on the reel, blind in the complete darkness in that confined room. But something didn’t feel right. “Is there any reason I could have liquid on my hands?” I asked. Neither of us could think of how that made any sense, but I carried on. Once the film was on the reel and secured in the black bag, we turned the light back on only to be confronted with a scene from a horror movie: My hands soaked in the blood that had been flowing

out of a gash on my finger from the cracked film canister. There, stuck in a room the size of a closet with a young woman I barely knew in the basement of Langara College, we were horrified—and then amused—at this blood-soaked darkroom debacle. The widespread and rapid change from film to digital photography over the last two decades has been remarkable. The technology, as with computers, has expanded exponentially. This year Eastman Kodak, inventor of the handheld camera, announced it would stop making most cameras. Then the company filed for bankruptcy, which is sad to me. I know times change, technology develops—which is usually an improvement—and companies that don’t move forward stall. But there is something beyond just nostalgia about shooting film. There is a dirty, hands-on reality to taking photographs on film. Digital photography is imbued with an abstraction akin to looking at a microchip and seeing art. It’s easy to conceive of how 24 photographs fit on a roll of film; it’s just physically obvious. But it is harder to fathom how thousands of high-resolution images can reside on a tiny chip in a digital SLR. I may be able to take more photos with my digital SLR, and probably better ones. But I’ll never have a bloodsoaked, darkroom adventure again and that’s kind of too bad.

arlier this week, the Chilliwack school board passed a pair of motions that will see trustees do more of their work behind closed doors and away from the prying eyes of the people who elected them. For obvious reasons, this is worrying. The public has given school board trustees the job of allocating millions of dollars of taxpayers’ money to properly educate our children. It is their single biggest responsibility as elected officials. But now, the school board has decided to limit the number of public consultations on the budget. Private consultations, open only to trustees and stakeholders, are now the order of the day. Those who might be interested in what major stakeholders think about the budget will be left in the cold. We doubt that’s an accident. That move is coupled with a recent directive that prohibits trustees from tabling major last-minute motions at regular school board meetings. While the directive may be passed in the name of expediting meetings, its effect will be to stifle the voices of those who disagree with the majority of the school board. Again, the school board seems to be trying to give those who disagree with it as little opportunity as possible to voice their dissent. There is something to be said for conflict and disagreement among elected representatives. Whether we’re talking about school board trustees or councillors or members of Parliament, it’s important that our politicians stand up for their points of view, even if that means stepping on toes. At the same time, the Chilliwack school board continues to be dysfunctional in all the wrong ways. Our school board can’t even bicker properly. Again and again, trustees take the same sides, no matter the issue. Instead of thinking for themselves and taking a certain position because it conflicts or agrees with their world views, our trustees remain merely partisan. Instead, we need trustees willing to stand up for what they actually believe in, in public. If that angers some, fine. But that’s the price to be paid when you’re an elected representative of the people.

Letters

Mr. See showed true leadership

Teachers out in long hours Editor: According to “Our View” A8 in the March 13Times, it is troubling that there was an outcry against a principal’s decision to punish student protesters. On the contrary, I found it quite troubling that some students were punished for supporting their teachers. What principles is this principal trying to teach exactly? My mother was a teacher; she spent most weekends catching up on corrections, paperwork and planning she couldn’t get around to finishing over the week. Did you count those hours in your so detailed salary calculations Miss Matheson (“Nobody else gets a pay hike”)? When we don’t make sure teachers have a proper salary and conditions, that affects our kids; so if you don’t care about the teachers, think of the trickling effect on the kids. Better yet, try to do their job for a couple of weeks, I bet you burn out after the first. M. Savoie Chilliwack

Caseload more than tripled Re: “Nobody else has seen a pay hike,” submitted by Natalie Matheson and printed in the March 13 Chilliwack Times. Ms. Matheson: You stated that you are opposed to teachers striking for “. . . better work conditions.” Later in your letter, you also stated that you can “. . . get behind smaller classes and more support for special need.” It’s clear to me that there is an unfortunate contradiction in your two statements. Teachers’ working conditions defend students’ learning conditions with regards to class size, class composition, and case loads for special education teachers. In my own experience (22 years and counting) as a special education/learning assistance teacher, I have witnessed the erosion of these conditions for both teachers and students. When I began my career as a special education teacher in the Langley school district, my caseload maximum was 15 students. Bill 28 (passed in 2002, and declared unconstitutional in 2011) removed all language protecting caseload maximums. When I left Chilliwack secondary school in 2008, my caseload as a learning assistance teacher had reached 58 students. Despite routinely working 55-plus hours per week, it became impossible to deliver the level of service the job entails, and that each of the students deserved. Now Bill 22 threatens to further erode learning and

working conditions. Since February 2008, I have had the privilege of running the school program at Ford Mountain Correctional Centre. Perhaps you could contact the parents you know who would like to volunteer in a classroom; I’d love to hear from them. Doug Fraser Chilliwack

‘hands on’ planning for lessons. Report cards take time to write. Maybe teachers should have gone with an hourly wage like nurses. But I challenge you to go into a class and do their job for their pay. Get your degree and go have a try. Have you ever volunteered in a classroom? Maybe start with that before you invest five years in university. Do you even have children in public school? Why don’t you volunteer in their classes? I have volunteered in my children’s classes since they started kindergarten in public school and my last son is in Grade 12. Elementary, especially primary teachers, welcome volunteers. Others are doing a fine job on their own. C. Stobbe Rosedale

Exploiting the Volunteer and election rules see their reality Editor: Editor: In response to Natalie Matheson’s letter, Times, March 13. I think you know that in any negotiations, be it private business or public, each side brings their wants to the table. Both sides meet in the middle and go away with a contract for the next few years. Teachers and our government are in this process in a loud and vocal way with each side exaggerating the other’s wants. Teachers should get a cost of living increase. It won’t be five per cent a year like they are asking but maybe around two per cent. I think the biggest issue is that the two sides had an agreement which they both signed during the last round of contract talks and the government pulled the agreed terms away. BCTF took the government to court where they found this was against the law. Our government has broken a signed agreement and taken away those terms. This is unlawful. We live in a democracy. The hours of a teacher are not always the same. Older grades have marking. Primary teachers have lots of

Don’t tell me Christy Clark stands for democracy. Chilliwack has long been without a representative and now, even with a BC Liberal candidate officially declared over a month ago, Clark is still holding off calling the byelection: leaving the citizens hanging, in order to faciltate the crass exploitation of an elections loophole. There is a saying, “Too clever by half”: meaning a person’s “cleverness” ends in self-destruction. Reasoning, reasonableness and tenacity are the hallmarks of Canadians. Ruthlessness, however, is not. It is a very ugly powerhungry “me first” quality. Should Chilliwack elect Laurie Throness, they must not act surprised when this proves to be a consistent character trait. E. M. Sangster-Kelly Chilliwack

Editor: Re: “Parent calls principal’s detention ‘heavy-handed,’” Times, March 13. I am writing to support principal Greg See’s decision to follow through on the threat to punish students who walked out of school in support of the teachers’ strike. I think Mr. See is demonstrating leadership to his students. My parents raised us with the philosophy to never make promises to a child—good or bad—if you don’t plan to keep them. To do otherwise only confuses them and teaches children that adults don’t really mean what they say. As to the teachers who are indoctrinating students on their particular political views, shame on you. Whether it’s politics or religion, children should have the right to make up their own minds. Teach them to learn about facts, not perceptions, because ultimately that is the only job you are paid to do. Ann Bell Chilliwack

Upgrading gas pipeline BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

K

inder Morgan’s Trans Mountain oil pipeline isn’t the only pipeline crossing through Chilliwack. Spectra Energy’s natural gas pipeline also runs under the city and the company plans on upgrading the infrastructure that runs under LuckakuckWay starting in 2013. Representatives from Spectra were at the city council meeting on March 6 to speak about the company’s plans. Spectra owns 5,500 kilometres of pipeline and delivers enough natural gas daily in this province to heat 2,000 Vancouver homes, according

Water bucket not enough

A Wellington Avenue home sustained serious damage from a fire Sunday evening. Firefighters arrived at the blaze, in the 45000 block of Wellington Ave., just before 9:30 p.m. Sunday to find smoke venting from the roof and window of a two-storey home.

to Joanne Metz, who is in charge of community and aboriginal relations. Because of shale deposit discoveries in the north, increased capacity is needed so Spectra plans on upgrades to 30-inch and 36-inch transmission pipelines within the 132-kilometre right-of-way in the FraserValley. “We engage early and often if we have work or projects,” Metz told council. “We want to work with communities to mitigate issues or concerns.” Metz said the company is doing preliminary investigative work, project planning and consultation. “Thank you very much for the early heads up to the community,” Mayor Sharon Gaetz said. According to fire officials, the homeowner was sleeping in a first-floor bedroom when the blaze broke out. There were no working smoke alarms, but the man was woken by the sound of crackling and smell of smoke. After first trying to fight the fire with a bucket of water, he called 9-1-1. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.

AUTISM, from page 1 to make sure this happens. I’m not going to have to set up meetings. But when it comes to my autistic son, I have to fight every step of the way.” Tracey Barnett, a private behaviour interventionist who works with some of the families of students with autism, tearfully told trustees to reconsider the ad hoc committee. “My great-grandmother taught me, ‘See a need, fill a need.’ An ad hoc committee is needed. Please don’t ignore them,” she said. Maahs’s motion called for an “external review of the delivery of special education to student in School District 33.” But trustees who voted against adding her motion to the agenda said they weren’t opposed to reviewing special

needs education. Trustee Barry Neufeld said he was against the motion coming at the last minute. “If we’re going to form a committee, there’s going to have to be some real careful thought given to terms of reference, and that’s going to take some work,” he said. “That does not mean that I’m dragging my feet.” Chair Louise Piper said striking an ad hoc committee before thoroughly consulting staff would be premature. She said the board will be meeting with special education staff soon for a planning session to discuss the issues raised over the past month “We can just drill down,” she said. “If it take us four hours, we have that four hours.”

Trustee Walt Krahn said an ad hoc committee to review special education would be a “mammoth” undertaking and that now was not the time. “We have teachers currently on strike; they’re not going to support any work like this at all. We have budget consultation where we’re establishing budgets. The timing just isn’t right,” he said. The board needs to consult staff before moving forward,” said Krahn, “and the priority for parents right now should be to give the district input on next year’s budget via the district’s website to ensure special needs funding is where it needs to be to meet their concerns. “It all comes down to funding,” he said.

FUNDING FOR STUDENTS, NOT FOR WAGE HIKES. The BCTF is demanding a 15 per cent wage hike and other benefits that would cost $2 billion and raise taxes for BC families. Virtually all other public sector unions have settled for no wage increases. It’s unacceptable that schools are disrupted and that students and their families are inconvenienced over an unreasonable salary demand in difficult economic times. The union is making claims and demands that simply don’t add up.

BCTF CLAIMS AND DEMANDS

FACT

The union wants more paid time outside the classroom – sick leave for teachers on call, expanded bereavement and discretionary leave.

The government wants more time for teacher training and to ensure that Pro-D days really are for professional development.

The union says all teaching positions should be selected on the basis of seniority.

The government supports seniority but qualifications must also count so that math teachers teach math, and science teachers teach science.

The union says that teachers who perform poorly in evaluations will be dismissed – ‘one strike and you’re out’.

The government wants to support teacher improvement through a standardized evaluation process.

The union says that government refuses to negotiate.

There has been over a year of negotiations and 78 full bargaining sessions.

The union says that class size limits have been eliminated.

Class size limits will remain in place on all grades across BC.

The union says that BC has 700 fewer special needs teachers.

2100 new teaching assistants have been hired since 2001. And, with a new $165 million Learning Improvement Fund, we will hire more.

It’s time to focus on what matters most in education – BC’s students. That’s why we are focused on per-student funding which is at an all time high, not on wage increases. We all want to do more to make BC’s education system even better. It’s the driving force behind BC’s Education Plan that teachers, parents and students are helping to shape. Teachers care about their students. Parents care about their children’s future.

Faith Today

Life as Tetris . . . and the blocks keep coming A

couple of weeks ago, I picked up a free app at one of my favourite coffee shops. It was too good to be true. I regularly search the “top free” section in the app store anyway, so under normal circumstances I would have walked by this opportunity without a second thought. This time, however, the offer was too good to pass up. What was this mindboggling, high-tech, stateof-the-art app that stopped me in my tracks you may ask? Tetris. That classic to end all classics. Who can ignore the addictive

challenge of fitting random shapes into their places to keep the blocks from piling up too high? It gets especially challenging when the blocks start falling faster and faster, and you have less and less time to figure out where to put this piece, how to rotate that piece, and you just wish a specific shape would start falling so you can delete a row (but it never does). In the weeks since I rediscovered this old-school puzzle game, I realized that I could see a parallel between Tetris and my life—and it wasn’t a parallel that I liked. I am a firm believer in the “seize the day” mentality. The book of James, in the New Testament tells

us that, “Every good and perfect gift comes from above.” That says to me that every good thing in my life was a gift from the God of heaven. Was I given the gift of today? Then I want to make the most of it. Did my heavenly father see fit to give me the gift of breath in my lungs this morning? Then, in sincere thanks, I don’t want to waste one second of that gift. Having said that, I also have to admit that life gets too busy sometimes. Rather than experiencing “life more abundantly” as Jesus promises in John chapter 10, I experience “life more busily.” Instead of deeply appreciating

Responsibilities, appointments, sometimes even people get slotted in and dealt with as quickly as possible so I can move on to fitting in the next thing in line. Now, here’s the question: Is this just me? Or is this symptomatic of our culture? Again, I am a strong supporter of seizing the day, but how many times have you asked someone how they are doing, and their response was: “Busy”?

how you were doing? If my hunch is correct, most of us have had times in our lives that feel like there is so much on the go, that it’s all we can do to keep the ”blocks” from piling up beyond our ability to take care of them. If that is you, can I give you some good news? Our lives aren’t actually games of Tetris. We don’t have to keep up that kind of pace in order to be successful. In the Bible, Jesus promises multiple times that in him is found peace. What a refreshingly different experience than the cultural norm.

Tall order for Chiefs Team has beat them once . . . why not again?

MARCH CLEARANCE SPECIALS!

BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

F

irst of all, let’s get the doom and gloom out of the way. The Chilliwack Chiefs are facing the Penticton Vees in the first round of the British Columbia Hockey League playoffs. Yes, the same Vees squad that lost six times in 60 games. A Vees team that won 42 straight games. The club that boasts seven of the BCHL’s nine top scorers, along with the top goalie. The team with the best power play and best penalty kill in the league. A franchise that set a new league record for wins in a season. The undisputed No. 1 Junior A team in the country. And the Chilliwack Chiefs must beat this team four times in the next two weeks. Doom and gloom wise, that’s about it. On the bright side—yes, there is a bright side—the Chiefs can think back to the hurting they laid on Penticton to open the season. Chilliwack beat the Vees 7-1 that glorious night five and a half months ago. If they can do it once, they can do it again, right? And if they can do it twice, they can do it three times, right? OK. It’s a stretch. But that’s how Harvey Smyl’s squad will have to approach the series

Tyler Olsen/TIMES

Chilliwack Chief Josh Hansen staples a Penticton Vee to the boards in regular season play between the two clubs. as they prepare to attack the Mordor-like fortress of the South Okanagan Events Centre. (Bonus piece of gloom: the Vees lost only once at home in 30 regular season games.) Smyl says his team will approach the series period by period. In three of the Chiefs last four games against the Vees, Chilliwack scored first and trailed by a single goal going into the third period. If the Chiefs can put themselves in a similar position in Penticton, and maybe even enter the third tied, the game will be in reach. “The plan will be as simple as possible,” Smyl told the Times. “We’re going to try and get off to a good first period and take it period by period from there.” Despite the formidable opponent, Smyl said his

players are just happy to be playing in the post-season after battling for months to get to the playoffs. “They’re exciting about playing,” said Smyl. “They worked their tails off to get here and are certainly deserving of the opportunity.” After dealing with injuries for much of the second half of the season, Smyl will have his full roster to draw on, with captain Tyler Miller back manning the blue line and Kody Dhaliwal returning to the lineup after coming down with the flu last weekend. Their veteran leadership will be crucial if Chilliwack has a chance of winning this weekend. While physical play inevitably picks up come playoff See CHIEFS, Page 18

Ageless Ford battles for spot

C

hilliwack slalom kayaker David Ford guaranteed Canada a spot in the Olympic games slalom kayaking event this summer with a win at the Pan American Championships in Brazil on Sunday. Ford won the K-1 event at the event to win Canada its only Olympic berth in slalom canoe/kayak for the 2012 Games in London this summer. But Ford still has work to do to book his sixth trip to the Olympics. Ford will battle with teammates at a national qualifying competition next month in North Carolina for the lone Canadian whitewater slalom berth in London. A win will give Ford, who turns 45 next week, his sixth chance to win an Olympic medal. Ford’s best finish came in 2004, when he came fourth in the K-1 event in Athens, Greece. - Staff

Chiefs hand out awards

T

he playoff season has arrived and along with that comes award season in the BCHL. The Chiefs 2011-12 award winners were announced Monday night at the Best Western Rainbow Country Inn. The first presentation was for the Greystone Rookie of the Year and Chiefs trainer Jeff Derksen presented it to firstyear netminder Mitch Gillam, who finished with 23 wins, 16 losses, a 3.10 average and a save percentage of .911. On Tuesday, Gillam was named to the BCHL Interior Conference second all-star team and to the BCHL All Rookie Team. One-time Chiefs top scorer Doug Ast fittingly handed the 2011-12 version of Top Scorer to the red-hot Malcolm Gould and his 72 points that included 36 goals and 36 assists. Karen Englebrecht and Zelda Hunt gave the Ron Englebrecht for Volunteerof-the-Year Award to one of the hardest working people I know, Kyle Bury. Kyle is really what a Chief is all about, he always helps out wherever he can with zero complaints and a team-first attitude. Cam Janzen stepped up and gave out the Crunchof-the-Year Award to one of the most consistent physical players on the team in Michael Spring.

Grizzlies football fundraiser Saturday

BARRY DOUGLAS

Chiefs Insider The Chiefs educational advisor presented the Ross Beebe Scholastic Player-ofthe-Year to Chiefs Captain Tyler Miller while the DLC Gold Financial Services MostImproved Player Award, presented by Jason Denham, was shared between Mathieu Tibbet and goalie Bryton Udy. Former Chiefs office manager Shelley Kincaid handed out the award named after her daughter, The Harmony Cup for Unsung Hero, to Derek Huisman, who, without a lot of fanfare scored 30 goals and 35 assists. Huisman’s linemate David Bondra took home the Bess & Cliff Brew Most-Dedicated Player Award, which was presented by a very dedicated hockey guy in his own right, Paul Nicolls. Chiefs goaltender coach Rob Bruni was given the honor to hand out the Kel-Mor Fan Favourite Award to fellow puckstopper Mitch Gillam. My personal favourite award of the night, the Don Nichols Senior Most Community Minded Award was

B.C. Lions great will be back in his hometown Saturday to help promote the city’s only high school football program. Rick Klassen, who played seven years for the Lions and grew up playing football for Sardis secondary, will take part in a fundraiser for G.W.

CHIEFS, from page 14 time, Smyl said the Chiefs will have to pick their sports and remember their defensive responsibilities. “You do have to play them physically but you have to be smart about that because they’re so skilled and if one [player] takes himself out of the play to make a hit, that opens up all kinds of lanes and opportunities,” Smyl noted. Add in the Penticton power play and restraint may be the order of the day when it comes to containing the Vees. And therein is the conundrum.

presented by Younies Family Restaurant owner Joel Hill, his son Aaron and Chiefs president Glen Ringdal. Selecting a winner was very hard as everyone of the Chiefs players could have won it with their hard work in the community but the one person who stood out was Bryton Udy, who came to us early in the season and asked what else he could do to give back to Chilliwack. Udy practised what he preached and was seen all over our community. Brandon Fleenor stepped to the mic and announced the Orland Kurtenbach TopDefenceman Award would go to the steady David Thompson. The consistent playing Thompson had 30 points in 60 games along with 67 penalty minutes. Mr. Stats, Jacob Bestebroer, delivered the Century Pacific Three-Star Awards to Huisman (third), Gillam (second) and Gould (first). The final piece of hardware, the BMO MVP, was handed out by Chiefs head coach and general manager Harvey Smyl and was presented to a pair of Chiefs, Mitch Gillam and Malcolm Gould. Reminder there is a Chiefs fan bus heading up for game 2 in Penticton this Saturday, the bus will leave at 1:30 and is just $35. For more info call 604-392-4433.

Something special about starting from seeds

BY AMANDA JARRETT Special to the Times

H

ave you tried growing a few tomatoes from seeds on the windowsill and had limited success? Here are a few tricks of the trade that should give you more successes than failures: Most folk like to grow seedlings in front of a window, but it is not the best location as it gets too cool at night. The light is also inadequate. If you must, select a south or west facing window. Try supplementing with a few table lamps with grow lights and keep them on for at least 12 hours a day. Another option is to hang a fluorescent light fixture (with two cool bulbs) two to four inches above the seedlings. Suspend the fixture from chains so it can be raised as the seedlings grow. Keep the

light on for 12 to 16 hours; use a timer for convenience. You will know if the seedlings are not getting enough light if they are leggy, spindly and stretch towards the light source. If you give your seedlings bottom heat, they will germinate faster, be stronger and be more resistant to damping off; the prime culprit of seedling death. Heated propagation mats are readily available at many stores where seeds are sold. All you need is an outlet to plug them into and keep them on 24/7. With bottom heat and artificial light, you can easily grow seedlings in a basement. Use new seeds as the percentage of viable seeds deteriorate over time. Use clean, dry containers with drainage holes. If recycling containers, sterilize them first with 1/4 cup of

If condensation occurs under the cover, remove the lid slightly to aid in evaporation. 8. Once the seeds have germinated, remove the plastic lid. If you leave it on, the seedlings will rot. 9. Don’t forget to check seedlings daily. 10. Don’t water with cold water. 11. Wilting is caused by too much moisture or too little, check with your finger. 12. When seeds wilt and die overnight it is caused by a fungus called damping off. To prevent, water with warm camomile tea, provide bottom heat and avoid cold water.

13. When seedlings have two sets of leaves, repot into a slightly larger pot. Use a pencil or chopstick to pry them out and hold them by a leaf, not their stem. 14. Use a pencil to make a shallow hole for the roots. Firm the roots into the soil and gently water with warm water. 15. Don’t place in full sun for a few days; instead give them bright light without full sun. 16. Once the seedling have picked up, place them back under the light. 17. Good luck!

Beware of mortgage fraud

T

he promise of a quick profit in real estate can be hard to resist. But consumers who misrepresent information when buying or refinancing a home could end up being responsible for any shortfall when the property is sold. If the misrepresentation is intentional, they could also be held criminally responsible as accomplices to mortgage fraud. The most common form of mortgage fraud, called straw buying, occurs when someone with good credit is convinced to put their name on a mortgage application for a home that someone else will be buying, usually in return for the promise of a quick profit. To protect your name, your credit and your family, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation (CMHC) offers the following tips on how to avoid becoming part of a mortgage fraud scheme: ◗ Never accept money, guarantee a loan or add your name to a mortgage unless you fully intend to purchase the property. If you allow your personal information to be used for a mortgage, even for a brief period, you could be held responsible for the entire debt even after the property is sold. ◗ Always know who you are doing business with. If you are buying or selling a home, use only licensed real estate agents and other industry professionals. And never sign anything until you know exactly what you are signing. ◗ Determine the sales history of any property you are thinking about buying, and consider

having it inspected and appraised. Ask for a copy of the land title search, and find out if anyone else has a financial interest in the home. If a deposit is required, make sure the funds are held “in trust” by the vendor’s realty company or lawyer/notary. ◗ Get independent legal advice from your own lawyer/notary. Talk to your lawyer/notary about title insurance and other alternative methods of protection. ◗ To protect yourself from identity theft, never give out your personal information until you know who you are dealing with and how your information will be used. Review your mail, bank statements and other financial statements on a regular basis for inconsistencies. Shred or destroy all personal and financial documents before you throw them away. And inspect your credit report on a regular basis by contacting Equifax Canada at www.equifax.ca or TransUnion Canada at www.transunion.ca. ◗ Most importantly, be wary of anyone who approaches you with an offer to make a quick profit in real estate. Remember: if a deal sounds too good to be true, it probably is. ◗ This information is available in eight languages. If you suspect that you or someone you know has been the victim of real estate fraud, contact your local police department immediately. ◗ For information on fraud prevention or owning, maintaining or buying a home, visit the CMHCWeb site at www.cmhc.ca.

Spring flowers blooming

O

n days when grey skies and pouring rain dampen spirits and everything else, there’s happiness and hope to be found at ground level among the spring flowers. Snowdrop blooms last for weeks in these temperatures. When the show is over, it’s the perfect time to transplant a few bulbs, or whole clumps, to other areas. They’re no trouble in lawns since they’re going dormant by the time lawn-mowing season begins. Equally easy in lawns is Crocus tomasinianus. This little, early crocus, which squirrels detest, is a rampant self-seeder, which in old gardens creates incredible sheets of colour ranging from deep purple to pale mauve. But its thin, wispy leaves don’t dominate and by late spring are gone. Another spectacular sight at this time are patches of dwarf blue scilla (Scilla siberica) which become very dense where they are allowed to grow and spread freely. They’re best grown under deciduous trees or shrubs, which provide semi-shade as the leaves die down. Like Crocus tomasinianus, scilla is quite inexpensive and it’s easy to buy large quantities in fall Not many gardeners grow

ANNE MARRISON

Green Thumb winter aconite, but its lowgrowing bright yellow globes are a lovely distraction from the storm clouds of late winter.When it’s available it’s best to acquire and plant them early because they’re reluctant sprouters if the tubers dry out. There seems to be some benefit in soaking them for a day before planting, just as there is with snowdrop bulbs. In gardens where it’s been undisturbed for a few years, the hardy Cyclamen coum makes a mat less than three inches tall but is an eye-stopper with its bright pink or white flowers. It grows readily from seed which is why, ultimately, ants help it migrate into the lawn where it goes dormant in May and sleeps through drought, and competition from grass roots and riding lawn-mowers. Hellebores are always a delight at this time of year. The green, red-rimmed flower clusters of Helleborus foetidus have been beautiful for almost six weeks and

will continue for another six until their pointed-jester’s cap seedheads need to be dead-headed before they spill embarrassing quantities of seed. Helleborus orientalis is also in gorgeous bloom at this time. Besides the typical red-purple and white single cup-like flowers, hellebore colour now includes blueblack and a wide range of purples, reds, pinks, yellows, shadings of colour into white and picotees. Garden centre offerings of this hellebore are absolutely spectacular this year including a wide assortment of doubles, contrasts of bud and flower colour. Later, the seed heads almost become as striking as the flowers were. One of the loveliest dwarf shrubs at this time is Daphne mezereum which produces heavily fragrant pink flowers (rarely white) all down the stems from a very young age. It can be difficult from cuttings but grows easily and true from seed, then produces (poisonous) red berries. Some white-flowered forms produce yellow berries. ◗ Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her via amarrison@shaw.ca.

Ballet BC back at centre

T

he internationally recognized Ballet BC performs the contemporary ballets Walking Mad and Other Works at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre March 17 at 8 p.m. Presented by the Chilliwack Arts & Cultural Centre Society this ballet troupe features the work of award-winning choreographer Johan Inger who has created a innovative ballet in Walking Mad. The former artistic director of Cullberg Ballet showcases his impressive work as dancers explore the rhythm of the swelling tempo of Ravel’s “Bolero.” Setting the mood, tension naturally mounts along with the volume and pace of “Bolero” taking the audience into a dramatic spiral of madness as the music escalates. Visually stunning, Walking Mad is an exciting and dramatic ballet portraying the

transformation through spectacular dance manoeuvres. Other performances on the night include Ballet BC’s artistic director Emily Molnar’s dance performance entitled Between Disappearing and Becoming. Also on tap is Vitulare, a new performance piece by rising star of choreography Aszure Barton. Barton’s unique choreography compliments the music with the magical movements of dancers captivating with every move.

Photographer Ian Meissner said there was an eerie quiet as he spent close to six hours alone inside the theatre taking photographs.

Reels for the 1979 Chuck Norris film A Force of One remained in one of Paramount’s projection booths.

EE

ne week after the Paramount Theatre in Chilliwack showed its final film in November 2010, Ian Meissner spent about five or six lonely and quiet hours inside the old building taking photographs. The results are pictures on this page and include many more in a photo gallery at www.chilliwacktimes. com. Meissner, a local realtor and photographer, has lived most of his life in Chilliwack and, like many long-time residents, spent many happy Saturdays of his youth taking in the big-screen experience in the city’s now possibly doomed historic structure. So when he heard the cinema was showing its last film, he grabbed his camera and went to the theatre to take a few photos of the lit sign from outside. Then he got the key to the building from city hall and on Nov. 10, 2010, he spent an hour in the morning and four or five hours in the afternoon exploring and taking photos. “It was a surreal experience,” he said. “There is not a sound in the place, the walls are so thick you can’t hear a thing.” When Landmark Cinemas donated the building to the City of Chilliwack, they literally walked away. When Meissner visited, popcorn makers still sat on the concession counter. Pop was still in the pop machines. Film leaders flowed out of garbage cans in the two projector rooms as if the building was evacuated in a hurry, never to be returned to. “I didn’t touch a thing,” Meissner said. “It was really, really interesting; a great opportunity to be in there. “It wasn’t a point that I wanted to be the last person in the Paramount. But I love movies.” Meissner attended the recent meeting of the Save the Paramount working group and he has created a website, www.savetheparamount.ca, with links to stories about attempts to restore historic theatres in Toronto, San Francisco, Washington, Chicago and other places.

Jelena Milojevic As a versatile musician with an extensive performing history, she has appeared on concert stages in Europe (Germany, France, Italy, UK, Ukraine, Croatia, Montenegro, Bosnia, Serbia), Canada and the U.S. Her debut concert at Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall in New York City was the first solo accordion recital in the last 30 years in the prestigious venue. Her performances have been acclaimed as “an explosion

of cosmic sensuality” and she has been praised for her “brilliant virtuosity.” In the summer of 2007, Milojevic moved to Vancouver with her family. While there, she taught at Vancouver Community College and performed throughout the West Coast to promote the accordion. She discovered the accordion community in Victoria, where she currently lives, and now works on putting the accordion onto the map of recognized classical instruments. Currently, she is teaching accordion at Camosun College in Victoria and private lessons at Tempo Trend Studios in Victoria. Not only is she performing a solo concert on March 17 but Milojevic will also be performing with the Chilliwack Symphony Orchestra and Chorus on May 26.

hen most people think of accordian music, someone such as Jelena Milojevic is not necessarily who jumps to mind. But the world-celebrated solo artist comes to Chilliwack to perform a benefit concert for Mozart Opera Project March 17 and she will surprise. Milojevic is one of the foremost female accordion performers of our time. She was born and raised in Croatia, where she started studying classical accordion, first at Ivan Matetic-Ronjgov Music School and later on at Music Academy in Pula (Croatia). But destiny, and her Serbian roots, led her to one of the most famous accordion centres in the world, the city of Kragujevac (Serbia) and its music academy, where she received her bachelor/master degree in accordion performance and education. While a student, she had intensive collaboration with some of the world’s leading accordion pedagogues and performers.

If we could have a lifetime wish, A dream that would come true, We would pray to God with all our hearts for yesterday and you, A thousand words can not bring you back we know because we’ve tried, And neither will a million tears, we know because we’ve cried. You left behind our broken hearts and happy memories too, We never wanted memories we only wanted you. We will be thinking of you today, tomorrow and this year for your 25 birthday.

MEAGHER Betty Bernice

Jan. 15, 1924 ~ Mar. 5, 2012 Betty lived her life with grace, wit, charm and wisdom. Her gentleness and kindness touched everyone around her. She was passionate about education and community service and found special joy in music and the theatre. A graduate of UBC, Betty was elected Chilliwack School District Trustee from 1975 to 1987 and had a major role in many provincial and regional boards and committees. Also during that time she was appointed for three terms as Chairman of the Fraser Valley College Board. In 1987 she was elected Chilliwack General Hospital Society Board Trustee. In 1988 Betty was honoured as Chilliwack’s Woman of the Year for her dedicated contribution to community service and her tireless support for a variety of educational organizations and charities. For 64 years she applied her talents as a member of P.E.O., a philanthropic educational organization, serving for five years on the P.E.O. Provincial Board. Betty was also a member of the University Women’s Club, Chilliwack Probus Club and Chilliwack Festival Chorus choir. She loved to read and delighted in her ‘Proust Pretenders’ book club. Betty was a great lady, a proud Canadian and dearly loved by all who knew her. Betty is predeceased by her husband of 50 years Thomas (1998), and her dear friend Bob Turner (2010). She is lovingly remembered by her children; Cathy (Gerry) Carr, Eric (Linda) Meagher, Holly (John) O’Connor and Ross Meagher, and two grandchildren Candace and Adam Meagher. Betty’s family is very grateful for the wonderful care given by the staff and volunteers at Cascade Lodge and Cascade Hospice. At Betty’s request, there will be no funeral service. A memorial tea will be held at the Best Western Rainbow Country Inn on Monday, April 16, 2012 from 2:00 to 4:00 pm. Donations may be made in her memory to the Chilliwack Cascade Hospice or Chilliwack Salvation Army (or charity of your choice).

Cancer June 21-July 22: The weeks ahead accent your career, relations with higher-ups, reputation and general ambitions, especially Thursday to Saturday – step cautiously. Don’t start new projects nor make new contacts before April 4. Instead, protect ongoing ventures and projects from delays and mistakes, especially in communications and from international or legal sources. A gentle person might contact you from the past – he/she is interested in a “passionate situation.” If you’re single, why not? Sunday/Monday feature mysteries and “high finance.” Midweek brings a mellow mood, travel and wisdom. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: A mellow, wise, gentle four weeks begins now (Monday night).Legal,international, intellectual, publishing, education, culture, love and travel involvements will be highlighted. (Take care with these Thursday – Saturday.) Don’t start anything new before April 4, and double-check facts, figures – and impulses – before then. (Impulses, especially in sexual and financial zones.) VIPs, bosses and parents still favour you, and money is still (relatively) abundant – but keep a rein on spending. Exciting meetings occur Monday/Tuesday. Mysteries and deep desires meet open doors midweek. Virgo Aug.23-Sept.22: Something major is brewing. But be cautious, start nothing new before April 4. The month ahead – especially this Thursday to Saturday – features sexual desires, subconscious urges, financial objectives, investments, debt, research, mysteries, deep health matters and diagnosis, lifestyle changes, commitments and consequences. Research is fine here, but don’t commit to anything (before April 4) unless it possesses a strong link to your past desires, actions, contacts. Your determination will return April 13 onward. Chores, Sunday/Monday. Love (?) midweek – a former sexy someone?

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Your energy, charisma and popularity come roaring back! However, you could make a large mistake if you begin an important new project now – wait until April 4 onward. Meanwhile, use all that energy to cut away the lingering vines of old limitations and neglected chores. Sunday/Monday raise your hopes – and your popularity. Your thoughts about a relationship are correct. Retreat for a brief rest Monday eve to Wednesday. Your energy returns Thursday to Saturday, but remember the need, Thursday, to be diplomatic on the career front – and with police, authorities. Big changes! Taurus April 20-May 20: Retreat for the month ahead – rest, contemplate, deal with government and corporate agencies, and catch up on neglected chores. Remember: compassion for others eliminates anxiety. In one month, you might undergo one of the most beneficial changes of your life (of a decade, at least). Think about this during March/April. Your status and career are highlighted Sunday/Monday: all’s well here. Your hopes and social inclinations rise Monday night through Wednesday – again, everything is smooth. Your energy declines Thursday/Friday: conserve strength, eat/dress sensibly. Gemini May 21-June 20: Dreams can come true during the month ahead. Considering everything; you’ll succeed most if you wish for healing, security, protection, lifting of burdens and restrictions, agreement with a government agency (e.g., over a tax position) – that sort of thing. Avoid starting new projects until April 4. You might meet someone fascinating, with large, bright eyes. Domestic matters remain fractious, so step lightly. To succeed, pursue a bond rather than break one. Legal, intellectual, travel zones benefit early week. Be ambitious midweek. Hopes, popularity, please you Thursday onward!

' Helping Businesses one shoebox @ a time'

Mar. 18 - Mar. 24, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The month ahead features excitement – new, prospective (or ongoing) partners in love and business, fresh horizons and opportunities. But steer away from the “too fresh” – until April 4, avoid brand new projects, relationships and ventures. (If one of these returns from the past, it could be good – but remember, until July, partnerships can restrict you.) So enjoy the feeling of freedom, of breadth, but think twice before you act. Investments, finances and purely sensual/sexual links are beautifully favoured now. Romance, Sunday/Monday. An old chore returns midweek: do it! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start nothing new before April 4 – but be ready to grab opportunities (and good people) from the past. A month of work starts now – again, avoid big new projects before April 4. Tackle ongoing or neglected tasks. A major work assignment is brewing, but it won’t be ready for hands-on effort before April 11 or so. (And will succeed best if you start April 18 onward.) Others remain friendly and affectionate. An old flame might enter soon. Recuperate at home Sunday/Monday. Midweek’s romantic, creative, pleasure-prone. Work looms large Thursday – be cautious driving, communicating. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The month ahead (it starts Monday) brings romance, creative surges, pleasure and beauty – especially Thursday onward. Children will charm you. You’ll ride a nice winning streak, so take risks – speculation (and yes, gambling) are favoured. Still, start nothing new before April 4 – including love affairs, creative oeuvres. An old flame might return this week, but act fast – by Friday, the trend’s over. Co-workers are affectionate; work is mildly lucky. Communicate, travel Sunday/Monday. Settle into rest, contemplation midweek. Examine foundations, suppositions you live by.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Start nothing big, new before April 4.The month ahead features security, property, family, nutrition, and, basically, finding your balance, your roots and your centre – what the orient calls soul. Be restful, take power naps. Contemplate how you’re arrived here, and the larger, slower turns of life’s wheels, where the cosmic cart seems to be taking you. This is a perfect time (much better after April 3) to end certain associations and projects, and to begin others. In everything, emotions and business, keep foundations in mind. This is an easy, smooth week. Money, Monday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Start nothing new before April 4. A fast-paced but not important month begins Monday – you’ll be travelling, talking, writing, performing errands, paperwork, and making casual friends. In all these, be a bit cautious until March 29, as your talk/travel could run afoul of government or “head office.” Avoid gossip. You might harm your reputation, especially among higher-ups, if you act/ speak carelessly. On a deeper level, both your ideas and your methods of expressing them are undergoing big, long-term changes. Chase money Monday night, Tuesday. Overall, a happy week! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Stat no new projects or relationships before April 4. Expect delays and indecision – play a waiting game. Lie low, rest early week. Your energy, charm and ability to grab others’ attention rise nicely Monday night throughWednesday. This week begins a month of money interests (and possessions, memory, rote learning, and sensual attractions) – be careful with these through March 29, as a legal or societal factor could erect a barrier. This barrier hints that change is demanded in the social zone if you want to succeed in money, earnings, etc. – big hint re this Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca

8150 Aitken Rd., Chilliwack, BC, V2R 4H5 Phone: (604) 791-1004 Fax: (604) 792-1153 NOTICE OF PROPOSED LOCAL REVENUE LAWS AND INVITATION TO MAKE REPRESENTATIONS NOTICE IS GIVEN, pursuant to section 6 of the First Nations Fiscal and Statistical Management Act (hereafter referred to as the “FSMA”), that the Aitchelitz First Nation proposes to enact the Aitchelitz First Nation Property Assessment Law, 2012 and the Aitchelitz First Nation Property Taxation Law, 2012 (hereafter referred to as the “Proposed Laws”). DESCRIPTION OF PROPOSED LAWS: The Proposed Laws are a property taxation law and a property assessment law, both made under the authority of section 5(1)(a)(i) of the FSMA. The property assessment law provides for the assessment and valuation of interests in land on the Aitchelitz Reserve, including appointing assessors, inspecting property, preparing assessment rolls, and mailing assessment notices. The property assessment law provides a process for reconsideration of assessments and for a right of appeal to an assessment review board. The property taxation law establishes a taxation regime that taxes interests in land in the Reserve, and includes provisions for exemptions, grants, preparing tax rolls and tax notices, the levy of penalties and interest on unpaid taxes, and the collection and enforcement of unpaid taxes. A COPY OF THE PROPOSED LAWS may be obtained from: Willy Hall Aitchelitz First Nation Tax Administrator 7654 Chilliwack River Road, Chilliwack, BC, V2R 4L9 Phone: (604) 792-9485 | Fax: (604) 792-9425 | E-Mail: afc@shaw.ca COUNCIL OF THE AITCHELITZ FIRST NATION INVITES WRITTEN COMMENTS regarding the Proposed Laws.
