Millions to shore up dikes

Flood would be ‘catastrophic’ to Chilliwack BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

Starting at the back, workers took just a few hours Tuesday to take down the Ewert Building next to the Paramount Theatre Yale Road.

Ewert Building falls under wrecking ball BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

ustomers at Dragon Dynasty restaurant on Yale Road ate lunch Tuesday unfazed by the fact that the building attached to the eatery was being systematically torn down. “What are they going to do there?” asked a man coming out of the Dragon Dynasty at about 3 p.m. “Another parking lot like the Empress?” Minutes later, the crews demolishing the Ewert Building pulled

down the facade, crashing glass, steel and air conditioning units on to Yale Road. Another passerby was amazed to see the now exposed western wall of the Paramount. “Wow, look at that. Nobody’s seen the side of that building in how many years?” Chilliwack Economic Partners Corporation (CEPCO) president John Jansen was among those watching the demolition of the CEPCO-owned building.

hree levels of government were at Chilliwack City Hall Tuesday to announce $2.34 million in upgrades to the city’s dike system. Funding of $780,000 comes from each of the federal government’s Economic Action Plan, the province’s Flood Protection Program (FPP) and the city. “This is really good news for the City of Chilliwack,” Mayor Sharon Gaetz said. “A flood or a failure of the dikes would be catastrophic beyond belief,” Les said, adding that the dike system protects approximately $1 billion worth of infrastructure. The FPP is a $100-million fund to be delivered over 10 years that sees the federal and provincial government provide two-thirds of funding for eligible projects, with local governments or diking authorities covering the remainder. The FPP was established after the 2007 freshet that threatened Chilliwack. That year, a combination of factors led to dire warnings that the city’s dike system could be breached. “We were all very concerned and actually missed a catastrophic event,” Les said Tuesday. “It certainly served notice that we need to improve the diking infrastructure.” Dike upgrades will be carried out from the Wing Dike to Hope River

Crews watch on Yale Road as the facade of the Ewert Building is taken down.

Council shrinks tax holiday footprint

BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

D

evelopers will soon have a much smaller area of downtown Chilliwack to build while getting a tax holiday. City council introduced a bylaw at Tuesday’s meeting that shrinks the tax exemption area to the core of downtown. The move follows up on a recommendation by the Downtown Core Task Force in its final report from

August 2011. The bylaw was given introduction and three readings at Tuesday’s city council meeting, but it was not discussed. Since 2004, developers of 38 properties have used the provision of the bylaw, according to a staff report. The total assessed value of improvements on the 38 properties was approximately $103 million and the city exempted $544,000 in taxes in 2012. The current area of tax exemption covered in the bylaw goes as

far south as Railway Avenue, as far west as Corbould Street, as far north as Reece Avenue as far east as Victor Street. The bylaw tightens that area to a few city blocks bordered by Yale Road, Patten Avenue, Mary Street, Victoria Avenue, Victor Street and Princess Avenue.

Area to match the Downtown Core study area.” The report concluded that “the area is too expansive to have an immediate impact on the core.” The new area was reviewed by the Downtown Plan Implementation Committee, which suggested a oneyear phase-in period to allow developers to complete current projects, the staff report to council said. The bylaw still needs final adoption but will become effective Jan. 1, 2014.

Almost a water-filled grave BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

A

woman in Chilliwack got the scare of her life Wednesday when her car flipped upside down in a water-filled ditch on Gibson Road. Just before noon, RCMP members, paramedics and the Chilliwack Fire Department were on the scene of the single-vehicle accident where a northbound Hyundai spun off the right side of the road. Police rushed to the scene as the woman, using her cellphone, reported that water was flowing into the car. An officer at the accident site told the Times that the woman had been rescued, was warming up in an ambulance and was going to be fine. Another officer at the scenee was soaking wet with a cut on his hand that required five stitches. At least four officers went into the water to rescue the woman, according to RCMP spokesperson Cst. Tracy Wolbeck.

Several centimetres of snow led to treacherous driving conditions around Chilliwack and the Fraser Valley. City crews and snow-clearing equipment were deployed Wednesday on a priority route basis. “If you are driving, please use extra caution,” said a City of Chilliwack Tweet just after noon. The city also noted that people in homes where curbside garbage collection was missed due to snow are allowed to put out twice the regular amount next week at no extra cost. The winter weather came as no surprise as a snowfall warning was issued by Environment Canada for Chilliwack Tuesday evening. Six centimetres (cm) of snow fell overnight, according to Roger Pannett, volunteer weather observer for Environment Canada. By noon Wednesday Pannett had measured a further 9.6 cm for a total of 15.6 cm, with a temperature just below zero. With temperatures forecast to be around zero, snow flurries and/or showers were expected for Thursday and Friday.

‘Terrorizing’ home invasion nets man two years in jail BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

A

Chilliwack man involved in a “terrorizing” home invasion earlier in April will serve two years less a day in provincial jail. David Lee Ganaway had earlier pleaded guilty to one charge of break and enter to commit an offence and one count of disguising the face with intent to commit an offence. While charges of robbery, assault causing bodily harm and unlawful confinement were stayed, judge Russ MacKay said the serious nature of the home invasion required a considerable jail sentence. “There is no question here that jail is required,” MacKay said. “The severity of the offence cries out for it.” On April 16, men broke into an East Chilliwack home, beat a 45-year-old man severely enough to send him to hospital, and made off with jewelry and cash, according to police at the time. Mounties said that while the home appeared to have been targeted, its occupants were not associated with any drug activity. MacKay said the men “invaded the sanctity of a private home” and “horribly violated” the occupants expectation of living in a safe and secure home. “Violence was applied physically and psychologically and terrorism [was] inflicted on these people,” MacKay said, citing victim impact statements submitted to the court by the home’s occupants.

MacKay also cited the use of weapons in the home invasion as an aggravating factor. However, MacKay also noted that Ganaway’s role in the home invasion was less serious than his alleged accomplices. And he praised Ganaway for his efforts to reform himself and for co-operating with police. Two other men have since been arrested and are awaiting trial. At sentencing, MacKay heard that Ganaway’s assistance had helped police arrest and charge the two other men. “It . . . displays in my view, some courage on the part of Mr. Ganaway.” Both Crown counsel and the defence asked for jail sentences around two years and probation. Crown counsel Lori Stevens and defence lawyer Daniel Henderson only differed on whether the sentence should be served federally—as is the case for all sentences over two years—or provincially. Stevens said federal institutions offered better rehabilitation programs, but Henderson said the harder criminals that fill the federal system would outweigh any benefits. MacKay agreed with the defence that provincial time would give Ganaway the best chance to reform. He said cutbacks seem to have significantly diminished the superiority of federal prison programs over their provincial counterparts. Ganaway had previously apologized in court to the victims of the home invasion, and as he was led away he again looked to the gallery and again said he was sorry for his involvement.

Point will champion the cause of missing women

n immediate response to Wally Oppal’s missing women report, the province has appointed former Lieutenant Governor Steven Point of Chilliwack to “champion” the cause. Minister of Justice and Attorney General Shirley Bond appointed Point to chair a new advisory committee on the safety and security of vulnerable women. The move came Monday afternoon in response to the final report of the Missing Women Commission of Inquiry (MWCI). The report, entitled “Forsaken: The Report of the Missing Women Commission of Inquiry,” outlines critical and systemic failures during the investigation into missing and murdered women from Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside between 1997 and 2002. Among the findings in the 1,448-page report is the recommendation to establish a regional police force. “We are the only major city in Canada without a regionalized police force,” Oppal told the Vancouver Sun. The report makes 65 recommendations in an attempt to avoid another serial killer like Robert Pickton. Systemic issues pointed out by Oppal include poverty, racism, drug addiction and a lack of affordable housing. In a press release issued Monday, the government announced that over the next few months it would review the report and welcome input— via Point’s committee—from groups directly impacted by the recommendations including families of the missing and murdered women, the Vancouver Police Department, the RCMP and the City of Vancouver, all of whom just received the report today.”

As part of the dike work on Young Road north of the Hope Slough, Gaetz said the road would be widened from eight metres to 10 metres to allow for bike lanes. An engineer will be hired in January and construction will likely begin in a year so the upgrades won’t be in place before the 2013 freshet.

No cost to city

until January. The cost to tear down the Paramount came in at $343,000. The cost to demolish the Ewert Building was $130,000. Add $7,155 for bonding and insurance plus $5,000 for removal and transportation of the Paramount sign and the total CEPCO bill to demolish the two buildings is $485,155. Add 12 per cent HST and the bill will be closer to $550,000. Of the $130,000 bill to demolish the Ewert, 72 per cent, or $94,000, was slated just for hazardous material removal and disposal.

Sign says it’s free for the jerks

T

he sign said that if the checkout person didn’t mention “today’s daily special,” she would be obligated to give it to me for free. As I was reading it (it’s my ADHD, I can’t stand still for a moment without doing something, so I tend to read absolutely everything around me), she quickly explained in an apologetic tone that she hadn’t mentioned “today’s daily special” because I already had it in my basket. I was puzzled. If I already had it, why bother mentioning it? And especially, why apologize? Heck, it’s Christmas, so I smiled and said Merry Christmas and left with my few groceries. But I kept puzzling over the encounter. I guess there’s also a bit of OCD in the basket of psychological/emotional issues that make me who I am (no daily specials —they’re all cheap and easy for me to have anytime.) The answer suddenly came to me in one of those aha! moments —after I mentioned it to Donna and she said, “Of course, if she hadn’t mentioned it, you could have been a bastard and demanded that you get it for free.” Oh, yeah. The checkout person interpreted my inclination to read anything—everything—voraciously as “checking the rules.” She thought I was about to call her out on “today’s daily special”—demand I get it free—so she quickly corrected her “oversight.” Because there are jerks out there

BOB GROENEVELD

Be Our Guest who’d have made a stink over that stupid technicality. The foolish thing is that the sign is not for the cashier or for ordinary, decent people who either would have not bothered, because they obviously hadn’t intended to buy “today’s daily special” in the first place, or would not capitalize on someone’s insignificant error. That sign was there specifically to encourage the jerks. The ones who would eagerly wait for the tiniest error, and then pounce on it for even the slightest personal gain, without regard for the expense to someone else. It’s the same attitude people employ when they get too much change at the till because of a simple error in counting: you made the mistake, it’s your tough luck, and screw you. When we were kids, we played a lot of cribbage. One of the official rules of cribbage is that, if you miss counting some of the points in your hand, the first person who catches your error can claim those points. We were quickly disabused of the notion that that was a fair way to play any game. The rule was disallowed in our home.

The sign, the crib rule. it’s all dog logic: “Anything I can take from you is mine.” It’s the same logic that sends jerks over the border to shop and save a few pennies at the expense of their neighbours in Canada who end up paying for all the services that our taxes buy—for everyone, including the cross-border jerks. That includes some services that Americans don’t get at all, like the “free” health care that the jerks happily accept when they need it. The jerks don’t get that health care is not free at all. Our overall cost is cheaper than Americans pay on average, but it still only seems “free” because we all pay a fair share—except the jerks who sidestep taxes by slinking across the border to do their shopping. The irony is that nearly all the people who shop across the border are the ones who could afford to do their shopping right here at home. If you really can’t afford to shop locally, you probably do not have the means to make the trip across the border, or to buy enough stuff at a time to make the trip worthwhile. Health care and many of our local tax-funded services are only free for the jerks who don’t pay their fair share of taxes and don’t support local businesses that do. For them, life is full of “today’s daily spe-ials” that some poor schmo forgot to mention. ◗ Bob Groeneveld is editor of the LangleyAdvance.

here will be a lot of smiling and nodding and happy faces at the news that federal health minister Leona Aglukkaq is taking aim at marijuana growers who are hiding behind current laws to operate illegal drug businesses. Nobody wants illegal grow ops in their neighbourhoods or in their communities. We all pay for the electricity they steal. We all pay for the service costs they dodge by not paying taxes on their enterprising activities. Nobody wants the dangers associated with living next door to such operations. There is always the very real risk that their colleagues in crime will bring violence to their “place of business”—which can easily spill onto the streets as they “protect their interests” or into nearby homes through “mistaken identity” or even into local shopping malls as they engage in open battle with one another. Police officers risk their lives trying to protect innocent bystanders and bring the perpetrators to justice. Firefighters face grave risks when they all too often have to deal with grow op fires—or fires in legitimate homes that they might have reason to fear could be grow ops. How many times have they felt they had reason to hesitate, when perhaps it hadn’t been necessary? And how do you measure the cost of that? We all pay the social costs. And we all are eager to shed those costs—or at least make those who force that burden on us pay. But one thing about Aglukkaq’s proposal bothers us. How will we know that her solution is the best possible? She insists there will be a period of open consultation, and also insists her proposals will be implemented in 2014. Why bother with the consultation, if she’s so sure her solution is right? Either honestly listen for the best answers, or do it right now.

Core issues need to be addressed

School board an embarrassment Editor: Our dysfunctional school board is an embarrassment to all of us in Chilliwack who care for our community. The behaviour of the members is objectionable and for adults supposedly modeling respectful behaviour to those attending our schools, absolutely beyond the pale. I confess that I voted for one of the trio of women who are having such difficulty accepting the role trustees play in the educational system and for that I apologize. It won’t happen again.

Still good folks around here Editor: There are some really special people in this world and last Sunday night one of them touched our lives. Sam, our golden retriever, and my husband were out for a walk on the dike when Sam took off. We can only guess that he was trying to get back to the truck when a car hit him. The woman stopped and seeing his tag took him to our vet. It was a horrible situation but the good news is he is home today some the worse for wear with stitches and scrapes, but with no broken bones or internal injuries. The vet says he will be fine in a short while. I just think of how different the outcome could have been if this person had chosen not to get involved. I don’t know your name, but you reminded me that the world is still a place of good people. Thank you for caring. Carol Frost Chilliwack

‘Coke’ needs to be shut down Editor: I shutter when I hear of another accident on the Coquihalla Highway due to winter conditions. A bus crashed north of Merritt earlier this week and ended up in the ditch on its side. Fortunately nobody was killed but all 42 passengers were transported to the hospital in Kamloops where 21 required treatment. This could have been much more tragic! There have been many fatalities on this highway due

to winter conditions. The Coquihalla is set in the rain shadow of the Cascade mountains. The ascent to the Coquihalla summit is very steep, especially from the south. The highway is subjected to micro climates along the way. What starts as powdery snow, quickly turns wet and slushy as you head south. The Coquihalla has some of the highest snow packs in the province! There has been many complaints about the contractors who maintain the Coquihalla during the winter but I don’t think it’s their fault. The fault lands clearly on Mother Natures’ shoulders. In California/Nevada they close some highways that cross the Sierra Nevada mountains. An example is the Sonora Pass, which is extremely steep on both sides and is closed between November and May because of high snow accumulations. In my opinion the Coquihalla Highway is not safe for winter travel. Perhaps our government should consider closing the ‘Coke’ during the winter, like they do in California. There are alternate routes available through the Fraser Canyon and the Hope/Princeton highways. The savings would be huge and the carnage would end. Rob Kingdon Sardis

tion drifting away from the religion, and also drifting away from elections. One wonders if the younger, better-educated individual is finally beginning to see religion for what it actually is, at least the organized variety. After all, the various churches have become incredibly successful business ventures over the centuries. One might go as far as to say that one church, the one that has had a longer tenure than the others, is historically the world’s most successful business. One other central point is that now there is only one religion that is openly prepared to kill to maintain religious control; unlike the past when they were all in the business of killing dissenters. Maybe that the same younger, better-educated voter has finally cottoned on to the fact that our much vaunted democracy is really not a democracy at all. Sure we get the opportunity to vote once every four or five years, but how does that really count? We vote for a candidate who, to have any chance of winning, requires the backing and resources of a political party; and who is therefore chosen by that political party. Should the candidate, who others chose for us and for whom we vote, win the election, then, his/her first loyalty must be to the party that backed him/her financially, not to the electors who voted for him/her. Should the party who owns the candidate for whom we voted, achieve a majority of the parliamentary seats, that party will go on to form the government and the leader of said party, who was chosen not by the electorate but by the party will become the prime minister. Now, when our candidate arrives in Ottawa, or in our case, be it a provincial election, Victoria, he or she will do exactly as they are instructed by the leader through the party “whips.” Virtually, this individual who was sent by the voters as their representative to either the federal or provincial parliament, will, if he wants to stay in the job through future elections, do exactly as he/she is told. If told to jump, he/she may not even risk asking how high and when may they come down. Colin Genders Chilliwack

BEST WESTERN LICKMAN ROAD

Editor: I am writing in response to NDP Gwen O’Mahoney’s Thursday, Dec. 13 comments re: B.C. falling behind in skills training. I would contend that this ideology has a degree of political spin and is not addressing the real issue. This province has for a number of years (beginning in the NDP ’90s) until current Liberal control, been bleeding young people to more-conservative Alberta and Saskatchewan. Young people have been leaving due to incredible high taxation, high cost of living and little opportunity to prosper. Can we blame them? If you don’t have young people to pay for social programs, building more bureaucracy will cause further recession. Many of the skilled trades people have left, and the last thing they want is to come back to a left-wing province. The little I have heard from NDP leader Adrian Dix is higher taxation—just what we need. Stating we need skills training (which we do) without addressing the core issues is like putting a BandAid on a fatal wound. This province need immediate fiscal conservatism, an NDP government (like Greece) will be the final nail in the provincial coffin. From a sincere B.C. Conservative. Michael Henshall Chilliwack

Falcons making history BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

I

Cornelia Naylor/TIMES

Sardis Falcons guard Scott Fitzsimmons puts up a jump shot during the senior boys team’s first regular season game against Robert Bateman Tuesday. The Falcons won 87-61.

t’s hard to build a high school basketball tradition without success, but it’s hard to build success without tradition. For decades that’s been a conundrum Sardis secondary’s senior boys basketball team hasn’t been able to solve. But all that might be about to change. The preseason has seen the team burst onto the provincial stage with wins over three perennial B.C. powers, including defending provincial champs Terry Fox. And for the first time in the school’s history, they’ve broken into the triple-A top-10 rankings, coming in at ninth last week. On Tuesday, the Falcons opened the regular season with a 87-61 victory over Abbotsford’s Robert Bateman in front of 200 enthusiastic fans. “It’s just a really great time to be a basketball fan at Sardis,” head coach Kyle Graves told theTimes. It certainly hasn’t always been that way, said Graves, who played for team from 1999 to 2002 before moving on to a five-year career with the then UCFV Cascades. “It has been kind of a little bit of a joke in the past,” he said of his alma mater’s senior boys basketball program. “If you look at Sardis secondary, we’re like the sixth or seventh biggest school in B.C.

them you have to be able to play club throughout the summer.” Grade 11 standouts Lejeune, the team’s starting 6-foot-7 centre, and Rogers, a starting 6-foot-4 forward, are two of the best players in the province, have played on Team B.C. and supply the Falcons’ star power. They’re supported by a talented cast of role players, starting with Grade 12 point guard Jason Kroeker, the team’s third, consistent starter. Rounding out the team’s starting five so far are Devin Brandreth and Mike Gregory, who both sat out last season after transferring from G.W. Graham for Grade 10. “Devin’s been a real pleasant surprise,” said Graves. “He’s worked really hard and he’s almost our best three-point shooter.” At guard, Gregory brings energy, athleticism and a lot of steals on defence, Graves said. Cam Servatius is the team’s sixth man. “He does everything for us,” Graves said. “He’s our best defender and one of our guys that we rely on to score 10 points a game.” For inspiration, the Falcons look to Grade 12 centre Raphael Olivares, who put up 13 points Tuesday including a big three-pointer in the See FALCONS, Page 25

Sardis there were 1,800 kids there. You’d think out of 1,800 kids and 900 boys in Grade 10 to 12 you’re going to be able to field a strong basketball team, but that hasn’t been the case.” A pair of gifted players—Hayden Lejeune and Eric Rogers, who scored 21 and 18 points, respectively, Tuesday—and a lot of hard work by coaches at the middleschool and junior levels have made the difference with this year’s team, Graves said. Two dads, Sardis teacher Dale Servatius and Falcons assistant coach Trevin Rogers, have worked with the Vedder middle school grads who make up the team’s core since Grade 7, and junior coach Bob Fitzsimmons has worked with many of them for the past two years. Their work has paid off, according to Graves. Most of his players also play club during the off-season, and that’s key, he said. “Maybe 10 years ago you could get away with your role players not playing basketball throughout the summer,” Graves said, “but now you have school teams like Yale and Walnut Grove who are the thirdand second-ranked team in the province and they play 12 months out of the year.

High schools renew rivalry BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

C

hilliwack and Sardis students will square off this weekend in a crosstown hockey game organizers hope will have echoes of years gone by. The game is the brainchild of Chilliwack secondary school entrepreneurship students Joel Atkinson and Jake Foley, who hope to draw hundreds of students to Twin Rinks two days before Christmas. Atkinson—who plays Junior B hockey for the Abbotsford Pilots—says he came up

with the idea lying in bed, as thoughts about hockey and his pending Entrepreneurship project swirled and coalesced in his head. On Sunday they’ll come to fruition as students from Chilliwack’s two major high schools hit the ice. After his entrepreneurial epiphany, Atkinson teamed with Foley, his classmate, to develop the plan and pitch it to his teacher, Matthew Ferris. It got a warm reception, but due to what one could say was some poor sportsmanship on the part of players and fans at See HOCKEY, Page 25

Faith Today BY HUGO REIMER Sardis Community Church

T

his time of year, perhaps, we are more attuned to, and tuned into, the feast of longing, a longing for deeper connections, and a longing for purpose. As Jo Robinson observes: “People ask Christmas to do too many things, which can lead to false expectations. At Christmas people want to reach down inside themselves and come up with feelings that are better, bigger, more joyful, more loving, and more lasting than their everyday ones.” The heightened expectations accentuate broken family ties, surface inner turmoil, and make us aware of loneliness. We may resonate with comedian Lewis Black, who admits that being alone at Christmas “pounds relentlessly on

Feast of longing

my psyche.” Heightened expectations can be constructive or destructive. They are constructive if it leads us to explore and seek lasting solutions, destructive if we opt to go to our default and numb the pain, escape and avoid asking the deep questions. When the lights are turned out, when the harmonies of choirs fade and become silent, the cheery and cheesy smiles are a distant memory, and we are once again alone and wondering, in the night and at dawn, what do we long and

yearn to hear? The questions can slip in so unannounced and creep into the unguarded moments: Does anybody care? Do I matter in any way? The message of Christmas is that God came into our littleness, our lostness, and our wondering. After returning home from a long tour, Bono, the lead singer for U2, returned to Dublin and attended a Christmas Eve service. At some point in that service, Bono grasped the truth at the heart of the Christmas story: in Jesus, God became a human being. With tears

streaming down his face, Bono realized, “the idea that God, if there is a force of love and logic in the universe, that it would seek to explain itself is amazing enough. That it would seek to explain itself by becoming a child born in poverty . . . and straw, a child, I just thought, ‘Wow!’ Just the poetry . . . I saw the genius of picking a particular point in time and deciding to turn on this . . . Love needs to find a form, intimacy needs to be whispered . . . Love has to become an action or something concrete. It would have to happen. Love must

be made flesh. “ Love needs to be whispered. I understand that lyrics can mean many different things. I think that “I will wait” by Mumford and Sons is a beautiful expression for this yearning for a connection or reconnection with God. Consider: “And I’ll kneel down, wait for now. I’ll kneel down, know my ground. Raise my hands, paint my spirit gold and bow my head, keep my heart slow. ’Cause I will wait I will wait for you.” Wait for the whisper from God, who chose and chooses vulnerability, so that He can whisper: I am with you, I understand, I love you.

HOCKEY, from page 11

Adjusting team goals FALCONS, from page 10 fourth quarter. As Lejeune’s backup, he doesn’t always get a lot of time on the court, but when he does, he makes it count, according to Graves. Together the team plays an athletic game, running the ball and playing tough defence. Their early success, which started with a 55-52 win over then fifth-ranked W.J. Mouat in the team’s first exhibition game of the season last month, raised a lot of eyebrows, including Graves’s. “It was kind of shocking at first because last year they’d beaten us by 45 points in their gym,” he said, “and we were just hoping to compete and stay with them, but then we showed that we could beat them.” For Graves, it’s meant adjusting his team’s goals for

the season. Ultimately the Falcons are still gunning for a trip to the provincial championships in March, but now they’ve also made it their goal to stay among the top-10 teams in the B.C for the rest of the year. In the meantime, Graves is hopeful the Falcons’ promising pre-season might be the beginning of a new basketball tradition at the school. “I’m sure we’ll see some reward from the middle school kids looking up to this team right now, thinking ‘Maybe I’ll work harder’ to try to replicate what they’re doing right now.” ◗ The Falcons head to a tournament in Penticton this weekend. On Jan. 2 they host fourth-ranked Walnut Grove secondary for an exhibition game. Their next regular season game is a rematch against Bateman in Abbotsford Jan. 8.

River’s Edge wins contest

BIG ELKS DONATION

River’s Edge it is. After considering more than 200 entries in a contest to name its newest development in Chilliwack, Canada Lands Company have a winner. The planned development is on one of the last remaining remnants of the former Canadian Forces Base Chilliwack. The property lies between Canada Education Park to the east, Peach Road to the west and theVedder River to the south. To the north, Carter Road provides direct access to Keith Wilson Road. During the operation of CFB Chilliwack, the southeast corner of the 50-acre property was used for munitions storage. The rest of the property was used for combat-training exercises. The proposed development will one day be home to between 350 and 500 families.

Chilliwack Elks Lodge charity chair Carl Kreiger (left) and local Elks exalted ruler Ron Molnar (right) present Salvation Army major Bob Ratcliffe with a $2,000 cheque earlier this month. They challenged other local community service organizations to match or beat their donation to the Sally Ann’s Hamper Fund.

BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

Five different people came up with the name River’s Edge, which is the name chosen by Canada Lands. Because of the multiple entries, a draw was held and Michelle Brown is the winner of a $600 32-gigabyte iPad. Mrs. R. MacPherson is the winner of a $100 gift certificate to Garrison Bistro from a random draw of the remaining entries. The proximity to the river was obviously a guiding force for those who entered the contest. In addition to Brown’s entry, 51 others used the word “River” in their suggestions.. Other entries included Armoury Heights, Vedder Village, Peach Grove Place and Serenity Crossing. Some of the suggestions included references to people (e.g. Caroline Cove, Meagher Village, Hensrud Crossing), the military history of the area (e.g. Sappers Green, Bell Tent Acres, Munitions Park) and the surrounding nature (e.g. Herons Glen, Steelhead Landing, Coyote Meadows).

Susanne Reed is stocking up just in case predictions of Armageddon are correct.

8909 Mary Street, Chilliwack 604-792-2764

Kevin Hampson/TIMES

The end might be nigh BY KEVIN HAMPSON For the Times

V

isitors from space, environmental Armageddon, or societal rebirth—these are some of the things local people expect to see when the Mayan calendar ends tomorrow. NASA has released a video debunking doomsday predictions as fears spread around the world that the end of the 5,125-year calendar spells Armageddon. The video says there is no evidence supporting claims of impending disasters such as a sudden polar shift or a meteor strike. Many in Chilliwack are expecting change —in one form or another. “Saturday, if I’m alive and I’m awake, I’ll be happy,” said Susanne Reed, a Sardis housewife. Reed’s fascination with the Mayan calendar goes back to an experience she had in 1997 at the ruined Mayan city of Chichen Itza. After developing a photo of herself in front of El Caracol, a temple from which the Mayans are believed to have observed the sky, Reed discovered what she says is a UFO in the background. The end of the Mayan calendar is a “wakeup call,” Reed said. “Now, I would say the aliens are going to be here, but obviously, with my picture, they’re already here,” she said. Although Reed was reluctant to specify what she believes could happen tomorrow, she said: “I’m gonna stock up on coffee and bread and milk; I’m gonna be looking out the window.”

Janet Newport, the owner of Amethyst Books and Essence, a local spirituality shop, does not believe the end is nigh. “The Mayan calendar signifies the end of one age and the beginning of a new, but not the end of the world,” she said. Humankind is shifting into a higher level of consciousness, as we “move into the age of Aquarius, which is a more enlightened age,” Newport said. Marjorie Perzow, a retired psychiatric nurse who works in touch therapy, says the fascination with the Mayan calendar stems from a sense that something is missing from modern society. “Overstimulation is the norm; there’s something wrong with that,” Perzow said. “Everybody’s plugged into all these gadgets, but they’re not aware of themselves, of their interior worlds—how they think, how they feel . . . They’re lost.” She said wisdom comes with stillness and quiet, but “that gets lost in the chaos and all of the noise that we have in our day-to-day lives. People are time-starved, they’re sleep-deprived and they’re on a race that they can’t seem to stop.” To make sense of what’s happening, some people look to the past, to the Bible or to ancient civilizations such as the Maya, Perzow said. Perzow believes that the end of the Mayan calendar coincides with “an increase in consciousness” which, according to her, is evinced by an increase in popularity of organic food and yoga, as well as the widespread opposition to the proposed expansion of the Enbridge pipeline. Eddie Gardner, a member of the Skwah First Nation and elder in residence at UFV, calls tomorrow the “end of a huge era.” He expects “an intensification of global warming and natural disasters.” “This is a great time of reflection about where humanity is heading,” Gardner said.

The Trauma Stewardship Institute is committed to raising awareness and responding to the cumulative toll on those who are exposed to the suffering, hardship, crisis, or trauma of humans, living beings, or the planet itself. Our daily lives are filled with witnessing trauma and suffering. As a community member, front line worker, professional, or caregiver, do you find you: • are anxious or nervous for no apparent reason? • worry about things that have not happened? • have sleepless nights? • are drained by daily interactions? • avoid conversations due to fear? • feel overwhelmed? • forget or feel you don’t deserve to take care of yourself? Then this is a day you must experience!!! Laura van Dernoot Lipsky will offer a compelling mix of personal insight, cutting edge research, and humor to help us understand the cumulative toll of being exposed to suffering over time and gain concrete skills to reconcile it. Participants are welcome from all professional disciplines and life circumstances. We are pleased to offer Continuing Education Credit for those who request it: CEUs for all disciplines (i.e. legal, medical, social work, etc.)

Thanks Bruce, I have a young family, a husband and three kids and my life is very complex. I needed choice, customization and spending a lot of money on glasses was something I couldn’t justify. My Great Glasses experience was awesome. I didn’t need an appointment for my eye test and I got three pairs of glasses for less than I paid for one pair at my regular optical store. I couldn’t believe how great the deal was and how accommodating the staff were to me. I will not buy glasses anywhere but Great Glasses in the future. I’m so glad that Bruce was willing to fight for good customer value. Sincerely, Amy Gill

James Joseph David

Roderick Francis Bourke It is with deep regret that we announce the passing of Roderick Francis Bourke; a much loved father, grandfather, greatgrandfather,husband,brother and uncle to a wonderful bunch of family and friends in Canada, New Zealand, and around the globe. He passed away peacefully at the age of 91 on December 8, 2012 at the Waverly Seniors Village in Chilliwack, British Columbia. He is survived by his second wife Ruth McKitrick, daughter Maureen Halsall (John), grandchildren Roderick Halsall (Lisa), Noeline Borg (Wiley) and great grandchildren Alexis, Ethan and Charlotte as well as brother Ian Bourke and sister Noeline Eglinton. He is also survived by step-sons Greg and Roy McKitrick, and their respective families. Rod was predeceased by his son David, first wife Marjorie, and brothers Tony and Denny. Rod was born in the small town of Pahiatua, New Zealand. He spent his childhood on the family farm before enlisting in the army at the age of 19, later transferring to the Royal New Zealand Air Force. He completed his pilots training in Canada in the Air Commonwealth Training Program, earning his wings in 1942. He joined the RNZAF #488 Mosquito Night Fighter Squadron, flying numerous patrols and sorties in Europe through the end of the war. He returned to New Zealand via Canada where he married his sweetheart, Majorie Smith. They lived in Pahiatua for two years before settling in Canada. There Rod found work in the lumber industry, progressing through a number of lumber grading and inspecting roles culminating in his job as supervisor with the Cariboo Lumber Manufactures Association in Williams Lake, BC. Rod and Marjorie spent many happy years there, where Rod was a lifetime member of both the Royal Canadian Legion and the Williams Lake Golf and Country Club. On his retirement in 1985, they moved to Chilliwack to be closer to their daughter Maureen and her family. After Marjorie’s death in 1990, Rod lived on his own until 1995 at which time he met Ruth through square dancing. They married May 5, 1995 and had a great life together, enjoying many trips and helping local senior citizens. He was a kind, generous and loving man and did a great Haka. In April 2012, Rod suffered a fall, which resulted in a broken hip. Upon his release from hospital, he moved into Waverly Seniors Village where he spent the remainder of his days. The staff made Rod welcome, and provided outstanding care and support. At Rod’s request there will be no service, however the family will host a memorial tea at The Seniors Recreation Centre at 9400 College St, Chilliwack BC between 2 and 4 pm on Friday December 28 (across from Henderson’s Funeral Home).

The death occurred on November 24, 2012 following a 2 year battle with Colon Cancer, of James Joseph David of Chilliwack. James was born in Georgetown, PEI to Clarence (Clarey) and Janie David on February 4, 1938. He left home at a young age and lived in various places, working in the Sheet Metal industry and eventually after moving to BC in 1975, beginning his own company which he ran for over 20 years. Left to mourn his death are his wife of 44 years, Geraldine (nee MacPherson), children Golda David of Nunavut (children Cairo and Brogan); Natasha Lundgren (Richard) of Hope, BC, Jaban David (April) of Prince George, BC; Tekoa David (son Cole) of Chilliwack, BC, Kea David-Moore (Joe) (their daughters Michelle, Faith, Shondra, Keneisha, Aurora) of Chilliwack, BC. Also left to mourn are James’ siblings: Brothers Louis (Patricia), Chester, sisters: Margaret Lavie, Gladys –Ann (Frankie) McGillvary, Ella David, Laverne (Dan) Crowtz, Reatha Walsh and Janie DavidDixon (Ross) all of the Maritimes, several cousins, nephews and nieces and their families. Also his brother-in-law Kim MacPherson (Fern) of Chilliwack, BC and many good friends in the Christian Congregations on PEI, Ontario and BC, too numerous to mention. Predeceased by his parents, sister-in-law Anne and nephew Kenny. James’ strong faith in the hope of the resurrection to a Paradise earth sustained him until the end and is the hope we have of seeing him again, without pain and suffering (John 5:28, 29; Psalms 37: 10,11, 29) A memorial service will be held on Saturday December 29 at 2pm at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 46956 Yale Road, Chilliwack BC.
