.C. school boards have more wiggle room for giving out free Bibles than for passing deficit budgets, according to a Ministry of Education letter sent to Chilliwack parent Richard Ajabu last week. Ajabu set off heated debate in October when he complained about a School District No. 33 regulation that allowed Gideons International (an evangelical Christian organization) to hand out free Bibles at local public schools. He has twice written the education minister to intervene to stop the giveaway, saying it violates Section 76 of the B.C. School Act, which states all schools “must be conducted on strictly secular and nonsectarian principles.” He has been told locally elected school boards have broad authority to establish policies for the operation of schools in their districts and that it’s up to the courts to rule on disagreements where they exist. Ajabu pointed out that the minister stepped in quickly to fire the Cowichan Valley school board in July when it violated the School Act by passing a deficit budget. But that case was more clear cut, according a Jan. 22 letter written to Ajabu on Education Minister Don McRae’s behalf by senior legislative See BIBLES, Page 3

analyst Karen Loughran. “There was a clear violation of the Act,” she wrote of the Cowichan Valley case. “The board of education was required under the legislation to submit a balanced budget, it refused to do so . . . .” Religion in public schools is less cut and dry, she said. “In the case of section 76,” wrote Loughran, “while it is clear that schools cannot pick a religion and teach it to students as truth, there are a whole range of other instances where it is unclear whether a particular activity would contravene section 76, such as the singing of Christmas carols or the rental of school space to a religious

n the face of harsh criticism from NDP leader Adrian Dix and Chilliwack-Hope MLA Gwen O’Mahony about the government’s recent $15 million advertising expenditures, Chilliwack MLA John Les is unapologetic. “We are doing reasonably well in British Columbia,” Les told the Times Wednesday. “We’ve got some exciting prospects, particularly around mining and liquefied natural gas . . . it’s important people have some understanding of what those issues are and how we are dealing with them and give them a sense of optimism about the future. “I don’t apologize for one minute for government reaching out and trying to be informative.” Les was responding to Dix’s recent promise to crack down on taxpayer-funded advertising by making sure all government ads are reviewed and approved by the auditor general. Dix was in town on Monday with O’Mahony and Chilliwack riding candidate Patti MacAhonic to talk about the advertising and his plan.

O’Mahony said in this time of “belt tightening” there are a lot of better uses for $15 million. She outlined a number of things that could be purchased with that money, including 10 kidney dialysis machines, 600 playground upgrades or a new Vedder River bridge. She also mentioned the closure of the Chilliwack General Hospital in-patient rehabilitation unit. “$15 million would pay for 20 beds at the highest rate of care for two years,” O’Mahony said. Les responded that there are always choices and trade-offs to be made but letting people know what the government is doing is important. “Public awareness, if you are not rabidly in opposition mode, I think is readily accepted by most people as an acceptable activity of government.” But Dix said it was “unbelievable” public money was being spent on ads that he says are not only unnecessary but are blatantly partisan and misleading. “It’s unbelievable we’re spending public funds to say we are number one in job creation when we are number eight,” Dix said. “I think people are tired of this.” Asked if the issue wasn’t simply low-hanging fruit for electioneering purposes, Dix responded that the expenditure was an important symbol in times of restraint. “If the Liberal Party wants to put forward that type of misleading advertising then they should pay for [it] themselves.”

What does $1.5 million get you around here? This 2,500-square-foot waterfront Lindell Beach home is listed at $1.299 million.

Rosedale home cracks top 100 properties list BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

A

s Chilliwack homeowners crack open their 2013 property assessments and see the number, many will curiously wonder what their neighbours homes are worth. Many likely also want to know what that great house in that lovely neighbourhood is worth—you know, the one with the bigger garage, the larger yard and the better view. BC Assessment released a top 100 property list for the Fraser Valley but just two Chilliwack properties made the list. At 100 out of 100, the owner of an acreage in Rosedale, at 50200 Castleman Rd., got an assessment showing his or her property worth $1,461,000. But the top property in town is a 16-acre spread at 47295 Thornton Rd. assessed at $1,976,000. Of the top 100 valued Fraser Valley properties, there are 73 in the Township of Langley, 15 in Maple Ridge, eight in Abbotsford and two each in Mission and Chilliwack. Of those 100, 67 are single-family residences and 33 are acreages. As you move west out of town, unsurprisingly values increase considerably and you

get less property for the dollar. So what can you buy for $1.5 million? Still locally, MLS.ca has a $1.4 million listing for a 37-acre property in the Columbia Valley with a 2,000-square-foot rancher with loft, a large shop, and accommodations for guests. In Maple Ridge, $1.5 million will get you a two-acre property with a 4,077-squre-foot house. In Surrey you can pick up a 1.2-acre, 2,500square-foot home. In Burnaby your $1.5 million will get you an eight-bedrom, 4,200-square-foot home on a one-fifth-acre lot. In Vancouver, $1.5 million can buy an eight-bedroom, 3,692-square-foot home on East 38th Avenue on a lot that’s less than one-sixth of an acre. Of course, if you want to see how the one per cent are living, check out the top properties in Vancouver. Three of the top five valued properties are on tony Belmont Avenue in Point Grey. (Take a look at a Google map satellite view and the area look like a sports complex because of all the swimming pools and tennis courts.) The highest valued property of all is a 1.7acre home with 10 bedrooms, 17 bathrooms at 4707 Belmont Ave. worth $39,269,000.

ayor Sharon Gaetz recently took advantage of a rarely used provision in the Community Charter that allows mayors to bring previously decided matters back for a second look. At the Dec. 4 meeting, city council granted Philip and Lisa Gibbard’s variance application to allow for a shop more than four times the allowable size to store personal vehicles on their Chapman Road property. No neighbours complained about the application and no one attended the public information meeting to comment. But on Dec. 13, Gaetz requested a new public information meeting be held to reconsider the application. That meeting was held Jan. 22 at which Gaetz said she was lulled into not worrying about the permit to allow for the largest increase in lot coverage—percentage wise— the city has ever granted. The 409-square-metre building on the one-acre lot in the Agricultural Land Reserve will cover 10.1 per cent of the property. The largest previous variance approved by coun-

cil was for a 309-square-metre building on a one-acre lot, or 7.6 per cent lot coverage. “On sober second thought, I now believe the impact would be greater than I thought,” Gaetz said at last week’s meeting. “Ten per cent is not even close to what our bylaw says.” But Gaetz was alone on council with her concerns about the application and the precedent. Coun. Chuck Stam called the lot “an urbanized piece of property” and said that 10 per cent “is only 10 per cent.” Stam added that this was now the second time neighbours had a chance to come to council if they had issues with the variance and no one complained. Coun. Jason Lum said he understood the concern about precedents, but he had to look at the particular application. “I heard some concern about the applicant using the ancillary building for use otherwise than intended, perhaps having a business there,” Lum said, but added, “I have to go with what the applicant has said to us.” Lum’s was the only mention by council of concerns the Gibbards might use the building for business. The Gibbards own Gibby’s Auto Body on Alexander Avenue, a business that is not currently operational according to a phone message. The variance was again approved, this time in a four-to-one vote with Gaetz in opposition. Coun. Sue Attrill was not at the meeting and Coun. Ken Popove stepped out to avoid the perception of a conflict as he is a neighbour of the Gibbards.

Free bus ride for students

BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

S

tudents could be riding a free shuttle between UFV’s Chilliwack and Abbotsford campuses next year if a proposal to hire a private contractor is approved by the student body in March. The one-year proposal would see all students pay a $6.75 fee for the university to hire a private bus to travel between the two campuses about 10 times a day between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. Student fees would cover about 60 per cent of the estimated $220,000 cost to run the shuttle for a year, and UFV would kick in the remaining 40 per cent, according to UFV Student Union Society president Shane Potter. The plan would address a longstand-

New Doors, New Kitchen!

Vote on proposal starts March 1 ing need for affordable transportation between the two campuses, he said. Right now the only way to get between campuses is by car, Greyhound or taxi. “We have students who literally are changing programs or have to wait for classes to open up in either Abbotsford or Chilliwack or wherever they live because there’s no way to get between campuses,” he said. The issue has been exacerbated by the relocation of entire programs to the \new Chilliwack campus at Canada Education Park, said Potter, a fourth-year English major who lives in Chilliwack and commutes to Abbotsford every day. But it’s not only commuters who would

benefit if the proposal were approved, he said. Parking at both campuses would also be freed up and there would be environmental benefits from getting cars of the road. Students will get a chance to vote on the proposal in person or online at www. myufv.ca March 1 to 8. Even if the shuttle is approved, however, the student union will continue to lobby the cities of Chilliwack and Abbotsford to put in a public bus link the following year, said Potter. “I’ve always believed that if you want something done in government, if you do it yourself, then it kind of pushes the issue a little more,” he said.

hances will get its second chance for an expanded liquor licence on Feb. 19 after a deadlocked city council vote left the matter in limbo. A public hearing was held Jan. 22 to discuss the application by the owners of Chances Chilliwack gaming centre for a liquor licence amendment to allow for patron participation inTheWell restaurant. The owners of Friendly Mike’s, Corky’s Irish Pub and the Jolly Miller all submitted letters of concern or opposi-

tion to the application. Both Friendly Mike’s general manager John Toussaint and Corky’s owner Bob Harms addressed council with their concerns about the licence change, which they say causes unfair competition. Concern was expressed by Mayor Sharon Gaetz—who supported the application—that The Well’s advertising already made it sound like a pub, which it is not. There was also an issue with the fact that the applicant said The Well was a member of Bar Watch, something Bar Watch’s chairperson told council was not true. After spirited discussion at the Jan. 22

meeting, Couns. Ken Huttema, Chuck Stam and Ken Popove voted to deny the application while Couns. Jason Lum, Stewart McLean and Mayor Sharon Gaetz voted to approve. Coun. Sue Attrill was absent. The tie votes meant both the motion to approve and the motion to deny were defeated. Now, in accordance with section 131 of the Community Charter and Section 922 of the Local Government Act, the city will reconsider the liquor licence amendment application for The Well on Feb. 19 at 7 p.m.

The Amazing Benefits of Vitamin D

S

cientists have confirmed that Vitamin D can do more than just maintain strong bones. According to research, it can also help to prevent diabetes, inhibit the growth of breast cancer cells, and reduce the risk of children developing multiple sclerosis.

Vitamin D is especially vital in fall and winter when daylight hours are shorter. It appears that Vitamin D helps to slow down and block cancer cells, improve blood vessel health and boost your immune system. It seems, everyday, new research confirms that Vitamin D is really needed for your good health Research into the preventive benefits of vitamin D has raised hopes that the sunshine vitamin, which is produced naturally in the body through exposure to the sun’s ultraviolet rays, could extend and improve people’s lives. In 2007, an analysis of 18 randomized controlled trials involving people over the age of 50 found that people who took Vitamin D daily had a seven per cent lower risk of debilatating illness.

Lead researcher Dr. Philippe Autier suggested that vitamin D may block cancer cell proliferation or improve blood vessel and immune system functions. The study, from the Archives of Internal Medicine, reviewed research involving 57,311 participants. These findings are part of a growing body of research regarding Vitamin D’s amazing health benefits. The Canadian Cancer Society stated that adults should consider increasing their daily dosage of Vitamin D. The society said Canadians should take a minimum of 1,000 IU of Vitamin D daily, especially during the darker winter months. Prairie Naturals Vitamin D 1000 IU is the ideal way to get your daily dose of healthful Vitamin D.

I

t’s not the first time I’ve disagreed with police, and I suspect it won’t be the last. However, it appears I am seriously outnumbered on this debate, and I wonder if this is a sign of my a) increasing pigheadedness b) journalistic arrogance or c) failure to compromise on anything anymore. Am I a cranky rule-bound person, a moral throwback out of touch with the times? Here’s the dilemma: Radio station AM 730 tweeted a warning to drivers: “Seatbelt/cellphone check in #NewWest on Royal Ave. by Sixth St.” I tweeted back, “Do you think these kind of alerts are a good idea?” The tweeter politely asked me to review the last hour or so of tweets on the radio station’s Twitter timeline. The tweets revealed that the Vancouver Police Department approved of warning tweets (and I presume broadcasts). The police department pointed out it did not, however, approve of warning drivers about alcohol roadchecks—but the police were OK with warnings about cellphone, speed traps and seatbelt checks. And not only were the police OK with this but seemed to encourage it. The logic, if I understand this correctly, is that warnings encourage people to follow the rules and this is a good thing. Really? Seriously? I know that I often exhibit a childlike naivete where human behaviour is concerned, but this strikes me as wrong on several fronts.

PAT TRACY

Be Our Guest Putting aside the fact that folks who are reading these warning tweets are probably doing so on their cellphones while driving, I seriously doubt that warning them encourages violators to change their habits. What it does do is encourage them to take another route to avoid being ticketed. I suspect cellphone addicts don’t turn off their cellphones, but just detour around the checkpoints. In fact, doesn’t the support for helping drivers evade such checkpoints reinforce the idea that the police are not taking the offences seriously? Or, for that matter, doesn’t it give cellphone users a false sense of security knowing media and fellow drivers are monitoring—and providing—early warnings? Won’t drivers spend more time watching out for warnings in an effort to avoid checks, rather than actually changing their behaviour? With the exception of seatbelt checks, most folks, I suspect, don’t make a deliberate habit of driving without seatbelts. But cellphone use while driving, and speeding , in my experience, are mindful decisions. If you are in the habit of using your cellphone while driving or you always push the speed limits,

chances are pretty good that you’re not going to quit doing so unless there is some kind of deterrent—a fine or demerit points. Having narrowly escaped several recent near-collisions with drivers who were on their cellphones— and recently witnessing another driver (on her cellphone) narrowly miss running over a pedestrian in a crosswalk, I have difficulty understanding how helping reckless drivers avoid being penalized for potentially deadly actions helps anyone other than the idiots who think they can continue to get away with such bad behaviour. And, it appears, that all police departments agree with these early warning systems. In fact, the Burnaby RCMP even thinks warnings about alcohol check roadblocks are OK. That seems very bizarre to me. And where do we draw the line? What of the cellphone users who do cause collisions or hit people? What if they’ve avoided tickets because of Twitter or radio station warnings and continued on, and ending up hurting folks? What responsibility do the “warners” hold in these cases? If a drunk driver avoids a roadblock after being warned by a media outlet and then ends up in a collision that kills someone, wouldn’t there at least be some moral responsibility? Or, perhaps, this is just another sign that I have lost touch with the real world of today. ◗ Pat Tracy is the editor of the Royal City Record.

t’s not a new idea, but it’s one that’s getting floated around with increasing regularity: would the Lower Mainland be better served with a regional police force? As it stands today, a half dozen cities have their own independent departments —Abbotsford, New Westminster, Vancouver and Delta, for example. The rest, including Chilliwack, Burnaby, Coquitlam and Surrey, are served by RCMP detachments. The disconnect between these various bodies was just one of many points raised in Wally Oppal’s report on the Missing Women Commission of Inquiry in December. Vancouver police chief Jim Chu brought the question back to the front pages this week with a response to Oppal’s report in which he backed the concept of a Greater Vancouver force. To many, it’s a black-and-white question with just one solution: you either come together as one force covering the entire zone, or you leave things as they are, with different approaches in different cities. In truth, there’s a spectrum of possibilities: how about one force for north of the Fraser and one for south of it? Or, three forces running from west to east —the first covering Vancouver, Richmond, Delta, Burnaby and New West; the second overseeing Surrey, Langley, Tri-Cities and Maple Ridge; and the third taking the Fraser Valley portion up to Hope? Alternatively, why not leave the departments as they stand now but create sub-units specifically aimed at creating collaboration—like the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team—in which police members from different areas could come together across city lines to work on common projects and efforts. The only solution that should be dismissed outright is the one currently in place: ignore the debate till it goes away. The time has come to tackle this question once and for all and find solutions that work for all cities.

Liberals seem deaf and blind to the needs of the blind Editor: As we enter these final months leading up to the election, I find myself shocked to encounter firsthand how tax dollars are being misused to further negative ads about the opposition. I can’t believe the lengths to which the Liberal Party will go to try to win people over. There are so many better uses for the money they are wasting on paying people to make calls such as the one I received last week. Last week, I received a phone call from the Liberal Party. The lady on the other side of the phone started talking about how the Liberals are creating jobs for all and equal opportunity for all. She ended her comments with “Right Michelle?” The script was set up in such a way that most people would simply answer yes to her question. I happen to believe in speaking the truth so I stopped her in her tracks by politely informing her that I beg to differ. I explained to her that I am totally blind and that I am falling through all the cracks with regards to programs that are supposed to help me but who don’t know

what to make of an educated blind woman who has been job-ready for years. Most of the time these programs only hold me back and I find myself more qualified than the people who are floundering around not knowing what to do with me. This was met with silence and then some mumblings about how she wished she could help. I said I wished she could too because I’m extremely discouraged. She gave me some suggestions all of which I’d already tried but at least she wanted to be helpful. She then had the nerve to ask me for money. I

couldn’t believe what I was hearing. She wanted $100. I informed her that I’m unemployed and have no money to give. Would you believe it if I told you that she asked me for money again? She wondered whether I might be able to give them $50 or $25. I told her that as I’d just explained, I was unemployed and every penny is accounted for. She was not going to back down and I realized I was fighting a losing battle. I explained to her that people on disability only get about $906 per month unless you qualify for a special dietary

allowance or other minor subsidy. Even if you qualify for such an allowance, the amount only goes up about $40. This is supposed to cover rent, groceries and everything else. Apparently, Internet is a luxury even though we need the Internet to find work. The part that is important here is that I asked her whether she was taking down anything I was saying. She said no but that the conversations are probably listened to. That just made me feel completely unheard once again. I want someone to listen and to join my struggle for freedom because I’m trapped in a system that is oppressing me. It’s not enough for everyone to think that blind people who get up in the morning and try to live our lives like anyone else are amazing. I’m tired of walking down the street and being stopped by people who want to tell me how wonderful I am. I’m not amazing or wonderful. I’m a woman who is trying desperately to get ahead in a society who, through no fault of their own, has very low expectations of the blind. I’m not a super human or anything else. I’m

just a woman who wants to work, pay taxes, and raise a family. All I want is to be a mother. I want to thank our NDP MLA Gwen O’Mahony for always listening. I contacted her office and wondered if they were also going to call me and ask me for money after hearing that I am unemployed. To my surprise and delight, I was very graciously received and encouraged to make my voice heard. We the blind want someone to acknowledge that the system is broken and then to walk with us as we try to fix it. Blind people know what blind people need better than anyone else. We are people with hopes and dreams just like the rest of you. It’s time to take action and it’s time to say “no” to the systems that are slowly but surely oppressing us. I for one am frustrated, sick and tired of fighting all the time and I hope that people reading this will start to realize that there is a whole untapped labour-market of people who are falling through the cracks.

utes, but offensively it took us until the second half to find any rhythm.” On Saturday night, the Cascades found their game and their shots against the younger Timberwolves. Courtney Bartel led all scorers with 16 points, while Kayli Sartori accounted for 11 points. Ten different Cascades recorded points as Tuchscherer used his bench in the blowout. “Tonight was a good game for us, playing at the tempo we wanted to play at for close to 40 minutes,” Tuchscherer said. “I think as the weekend went on we got stronger and that’s a good sign for our squad moving forward.” Bartel was named the UFV Cascades/Abbotsford Heat Female Athlete of the Week in honour of her 22 points over the weekend. “It was great to see Courtn e y p l a y i n g a g g re s s i v e offence again,” Tuchscherer said. “She has incredible speed and a real silky shot, when those two weapons are being utilized she is very, very tough and when she is tough that makes us very hard to defend as a team.”

Cascades sweep weekend games fter dropping consecutive games for the first time all year, the University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) Cascades women’s basketball team got back on the winning track last weekend with a pair of big victories. The Cascades hammered the University of Northern British Columbia (UNBC) Timberwolves in back-toback games to restate their case as one of the best women’s teams in the country. The Cascades laid a 67-42 beating on the Timberwolves Friday and then followed that victory up Saturday with a 8247 demolition of UNBC. UNBC played tight defence Friday and limited the Cascades to their lowest point total in a half this season. But it wasn’t enough to overcome the Cascades, who are ranked fourth in the nation. Chilliwack’s Sarah Wierks led all scorers with 15 points and nine rebounds Friday. Her sister Nicole added 10 points and eight assists. “Tonight was about getting some of our momentum back again,” UFV head coach Al Tuchscherer said. “I thought defensively we were tough until the last couple of min-

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

G.W. hoop star signs with Cascades

T

he University of the Fraser Valley (UFV) Cascades women’s basketball team has signed up yet another Chilliwack star. The Cascades, who are ranked fourth in the country and stocked with Chilliwack talent, announced Tuesday that G.W. Graham Grizzlies star Kaitlyn MacDonald has committed to play for the school next year. MacDonald is both a decorated B.C. high school basketball player and a five-time honour student at Graham. She grew up playing in the Junior Cascades program overseen by UFV head coach Al Tuchscherer and said

that helped convince her to play and study in the Fraser Valley. “I chose UFV because it’s the perfect balance for me with academics and athletics,” MacDonald said in a news release. “I grew up playing in their Junior Cascades program and really fell in love with their program. What the women’s basketball team has accomplished is amazing and I can’t wait to be a part of that next year.” She said she plans on pursuing a kinesiology degree with an eye towards teaching. Tuchscherer said he is excited about seeing MacDonald suit up for

the Cascades. “We are thrilled to bring a player and person of this calibre into our program,” he said. “Kaitlyn is arguably the best shooter in the province and one of the best to come out of B.C. in the past several years.” He continued: “The thing that stands out with Kaitlyn more than anything is her work ethic and love of the game. I have known her since she was in grade 8 and it was evident early that she loved the game, loved to get better, and has always been eager to add new things to her game.” With five seniors set to graduate from the Cascades in 2014, Tuch-

scherer said MacDonald is set to have a big role in the program’s longterm success. MacDonald is the sixth Graham student-athlete to commit to a CIS or CCAA school. Sarah Mouritzen, the head coach of Graham’s girls basketball team, said the school is proud of MacDonald, who is the first Grizzly to be recruited to a top-10 CIS program. “We are thrilled that Kaitlyn is playing for UFV next year,” she said. “It is a great accomplishment for her and one that she has earned through her own hard work and dedication to the game and her academics.”

Faith Today BY GRAHAM MCMAHON Church of the Nazarene

“S

eventy times that.” When Peter asked Jesus how many times he should forgive his brother, he felt seven times was adequate (Matthew 18:21-45). But apparently not. Jesus said he should forgive his brother 70 times the seven times he thought was reasonable, hence “70 times seven.” He was using hyperbole, an exaggeration to make a point. So what was Jesus’s point? Forgive your brother or sister as many times as they wrong you. That’s the point. Jesus then goes on to tell a great story that illustrates why this should be the case: God forgives us for the infinite number of wrongs we have committed and so we too should forgive those who have wronged us.

Seventy times seven

But there are two interesting insights we can also draw from Jesus’ response to Peter. First, Jesus assumes that we will do things that hurt each other. Our impatience, insensitivity and selfishness are no surprise to him. He knows our weaknesses and yet loves us anyways and asks us to do the same for one another. Second, Jesus assumes that our relationships will be deep enough, frequent enough, and committed enough that there will actually be opportunities where we will wrong each other. Relationships that are shallow, where we infrequently spend time together, and

where we leave at the nearest sign of trouble are not relationships where this command will need to be followed. Only when we spend lots of time together, get to really know each other, and are committed to making our relationships work no matter what, will we have the opportunity to fulfill Jesus’s command to forgive each other 70 times seven. So, what can we take away from this? First, we will fail each other, so expect it to happen. I will fail you and you will fail me. Jesus is the only person that is truly reliable at not letting us down. The sooner we realize this, the sooner we will put

Second, we will discover that we are not perfect when we spend lots of time together, so get used to it. If everyone appears perfect, you don’t know them well enough and they don’t know you well enough. Spend more time with them. Third, to really be formed more into the people God desires us to be, we must remain committed to each other even when people hurt or disappoint us.

tence and a mutual desire to work towards reconciliation. It’s not easy, but it is what true community is about. Finally, the journey of following Jesus together is a messy one but it is what makes us more like Jesus and demonstrates God’s kingdom of peace in the here and now. To avoid deep relationships, choose to avoid spending time together, and to leave at the nearest sign of trouble is to prevent both of these things from happening. Instead of measuring the health of our communities by how few wrongs we commit, we should measure the health of our communities by how good we are at forgiving one another for the wrongs we will commit. ◗ Graham McMahon is a pastor with Church of the Nazarene.

Memorial bench Hayride... Louisiana Style! limit considered R by HHS council BY FRANK LUBA The Province

I

n 1995, Leo Facio was one of the first residents of Harrison Hot Springs to put up a memorial bench in honour of his late wife. But the practice has proved so popular in the picturesque little community that Facio, now the town’s mayor, and his council have decided to put a limit on the number of plaque-bearing structures paid for by members of the public. “It’s been a wonderful way for people to remember their loved ones when they passed on,” said Facio. But the most popular spots are by the beach and lagoon in Harrison, and there’s only so much room for the benches, which require a concrete pad for installation. City staff estimate there is enough room for another 17 benches in that area. “ We’re using up what space we think is possible at the moment and review it with council at a later date,” said Facio. “We’re not discouraging people to come forward.” While the waterfront space for benches might be filling up, Facio said there are other parks in the community of 1,600 residents and other opportunity for memorials, like planting a tree or putting in paving stones. He said there are currently about 110 to 120 benches in Harrison. Putting in a park bench is costlier than you might expect. The tab for a bench in Harrison is $2,300, which includes installation and maintenance for 10 years. After that period, there is a review of the cost for an extension. Harrison isn’t the only place where premium spots for benches are in high demand.

There are about 1,100 hectares of parks in Vancouver and approximately 2,000 benches. But Josie Riebe, manager of fundraising and development for the Vancouver Park Board, said “a number of our parks have reached capacity [for benches].” Particularly popular is the waterfront from Spanish Banks east to Jericho. Riebe said only about 40 per cent of the agreements for the memorial benches are renewed so “each year spaces become available.” B u t t h e y d o n’t c o m e cheap. A 10-year term for a bench’s installation and maintenance is $4,000. A ‘legacy’ bench with ongoing maintenance in perpetuity is available for $25,000. In Surrey, where the slogan is ‘City of Parks’ and there are 2,630 hectares of parks, 229 of 420 benches are donated. But scenic Crescent Beach is almost at capacity. Surrey memorial benches range in price from $2,400 to $3,500 for a 10-year term. There are also memorial picnic tables for $5,000. In addition to providing emotional solace and a place to sit, memorial benches —and picnic tables—are tax deductible.

Let’s help make her a sensation

A

Chilliwack teen is asking for the public’s help to make her B.C.’s Next Singing Sensation. Dani Cherniwchan, 16, is one of 11 B.C. performers competing in the People’s Choice Contest segment of Variety’s Got Talent, an annual talent show. Cherniwchan’s video was chosen from among hundreds of submissions. The performer with the most votes in the People’s Choice segment—which wraps up next week—will move on to compete against nine other singers at the River Rock Theatre. The winner will be chosen by a distinguished group of judges that includes Bruce Allan, the Vancouver music magnate who has managed the careers of Michael Buble, Bryan Adams and others. In her video, Cherniwchan—a Grade 11 student at Sardis secondary school— performs an acoustic cover of Sara Bareilles’s Bluebird. Cherniwchan, whose favourite band is Train, said she likes to sing and play acoustic ballads because they best suit her voice. Cherniwchan entered the contest on the recommendation of her singing coach. “I thought I’d give it a try,” she said. “I thought I might as well take the chance and try out.” She said it was thrilling to learn that she had advanced to the People’s Choice

In Memoriam

Alida Plante (Saulnier)

May 25, 1932 ~ January 27, 2012 Do not stand at my grave and weep, I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on the ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn’s rain. When you awaken in the morning’s hush, I am the swift uplifting rush. Of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the soft stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die. We miss you dearly and cherish our times that we had together. With love from the Saulnier and Plante familes.

Maria Gunnarson July 17, 1925 – Feb. 1, 2012

In our home she is fondly remembered, Sweet memories cling to her name. Those who loved her in life sincerely, Still love her in death just the same. Mom, we miss and love you every day. From the

Berry & Gunnarson families

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Your popularity rides a sweet wave; social delights, entertainment, flirtation and light romance fill your days – especially Friday/ Saturday. This is a great time to join a group. Still, your personal clout is beginning to wane slightly, so avoid being forceful, especially in practical or ‘dominance’ contests. Sunday’s for secrets, intimacy, financial ponderings. Someone’s attracted to you Monday/ Tuesday; far travel, school, law and cultfure go well also – after Monday morn. Be ambitious Wednesday: you’ll succeed if you down-tone rebelliousness, opt for communication, affection. Taurus April 20-May 20: Be ambitious, Taurus, especially Friday/Saturday. (This can affect any area – for instance, if you’re buying a condo, buy ‘up.’) Community status, career, relations with bosses, parents and VIPs, are part of the picture. Higher-ups favour you all February – propose plans, projects. Someone wants to be ‘friends,’ but he/she could lead you to compromising situations – he/she’s nervous, assertive. Be diplomatic Sunday. Large finances, sexual intimacy lure you, and succeed Monday noon (not earlier) into Tuesday. Gentle love, learning, law or travel arise Wednesday/Thursday. Gemini May 21-June 20: A gentle, understanding mood continues. Seize this time, this atmosphere: seek love, attend cultural venues, travel afar, attend/apply to a school, seek publishing/media opportunities – especially Friday/Saturday. Tackle routine or non-challenging chores Sunday. Relationships fill Monday/Tuesday – after Monday morning, these links hold opportunities and success. Tell your mate, ‘I want to do this, because it will benefit you.’ Midweek brings sexual urges, financial astuteness, and revealing detective work. Friendships challenge, but wisdom and love bring you luck – and travel?

Dogs

Cancer June 21-July 22: Secrets and ‘levers of power rise quietly around you, like hillocks on a prairie. This week and next, push steadily forward toward an investment, financial, lifestyle, health or intimacy goal – especially Friday/Saturday, when a new link or opportunity could occur. (But reject any idea or opening that occurs between 10 p.m. PST Friday and 6:30 a.m. Saturday.) Sunday’s for romance, pleasure – but stick with the known. Tackle chores Monday/ Tuesday. Relationships, negotiations, a meeting with someone who makes something deep stir within you, new horizons arrive Wednesday/Thursday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Relationships come front and center over the next two weeks, Leo – especially this Friday/Saturday. ‘Relationships’ includes emotional and practical or business links, new opportunities, fresh horizons (and possible relocation) – co-operation and opposition. Be diplomatic, but eager to join. Approach others, praise others, seek common ground. Sunday’s for domestic rest – nap, love family, turn on that old music. Romance calls Monday/Tuesday – singles could meet a future mate prospect. Couples find pleasure. To work, and guard health, midweek. Smile at the world Friday/Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Only two weeks left of work and health concerns, Virgo. Might as well plunge into those chores, especially Friday/ Saturday, when a rather significant new task, even new employment, could begin. (Forget resumes: be direct.) Sunday’s restless, not much use. Home chores run into confusion Monday morning (spouse has doubts?) but this p.m. to midday Tuesday offers big steps forward on the home front if you make the effort. Repair, decorate, landscape, prepare kids’ future(s). Romantic and creative urges fill midweek – an incident or alluring person offers a new view of mating.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Games, sports, pleasure, romance, beauty, creativity and self-expression call you – answering will bring luck, especially this Friday/ Saturday. This month could start or further one of the most significant romances of your life. (If you’re married, joy comes from spouse, kids, and adventures – take a family trip.) There is serious love and easy love. Your best ‘mate prospect’ has a load of work lowered onto his/her shoulders: be understanding. Unattached Librans might fall for a co-worker. Spend frugally Sunday. Friends, calls, trips Monday/Tuesday. Home, family Wednesday/Thursday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The main accent this week and next lies on homes, family, security, property, gardening, nutrition, stomach and soul. (Funny how these last two are linked in many religions and mantic arts.) Friday/Saturday might start a new project or trend in these zones. Get plenty of rest (power naps) and show your family your loving heart. (Unlike January, February spreads a balm of affection through your domicile.) Your energy’s high Sunday: tackle minor problems. Chase money, buy/sell, Monday/Tuesday. Midweek brings errands, friends, paperwork, a nd a potentially great investment (a home?). Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The two weeks ahead are not important, but they sure are active. You’ll call, write, answer, visit, perform errands, paperwork, and perhaps travel. A new venture could start in any of these Friday/Saturday. Earlier, Sunday’s for rest, quiet activities. Your energy and pizzazz soar Monday/Tuesday – start projects, relationships after Monday morning (a confusing time). Make money or shop Wednesday. This day might end one link, begin another; or, after disagreement, bring a stronger love. A new person might develop into loving friendship ‘with benefits’ – even into marriage.

February 3 - 9, 2013 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Chase money for the next two weeks, Cap, especially this Friday/Saturday, when a new money-making project could start. (DON’T start it between 10 p.m. Friday and 6:30 a.m. Saturday – PST.) Your income luck remains good all month; you’ll have enough to purchase a luxury item. You grow more assertive in communications – that’s good, but don’t overdo it. Sunday’s hopeful, friendly. Retreat, rest, contemplate and plan Monday/Tuesday – approach government or other agencies.Your energy and charm return, buoyantly, Wednesday/Thursday – home frustrates, but work/money please! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your energy, charm and effectiveness reach a yearly high this week and next, Aquarius, especially this Friday/Saturday. If you haven’t yet begun a significant project, do so now. Sunday’s for career and prestige, but nothing’s solid here. Your hopes and popularity rise Monday/ Tuesday – a wish could come true. Get out, plan entertainment, join a group – they’ll ‘love’ you. Retreat to catch a second breath Wednesday/Thursday: rest, contemplate and plan. (The best plans might be based on what occurred earlier this week.) Friday/Saturday, chase what/who you want: desire’s lucky. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Continue to lie low, rest, recuperate, contemplate and plan. Your clout in the world is at a low ebb for the two weeks ahead; but your skill and effect in ‘background’ areas is admirable. Background = spirit, charity, government, warehousing, administration, institutions, meditation, yoga, etc. Jump into these, especially Friday/Saturday, when a ‘new note’ (though a slender one) might fill this arena. Sunday’s idealistic, intellectual, mellow. Be ambitious Monday/Tuesday. Happiness, hopes for the future, perhaps a light romantic notion, arise Wednesday (watch money) and Thursday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
