ocal parents want school officials to move quickly on 15 recommendations to improve special education in the Chilliwack school district. The recommendations were made by consultant David Carter, who started reviewing the district’s special education services in August. He presented his 36-page report at a packed school board meeting Tuesday. Parents there said the report addresses many of the problems they have voiced for a year, but some were frustrated it’s taken the district so long to bring the report to the board. The document is dated Dec. 6, but the district delayed bringing it to the board until Tuesday because Carter was unavailable for the presentation. “There’s been an awful lot of time that has passed since this process first got started,” said parent Don Davis. “I don’t know that you heard anything more from Dr. Carter tonight than you would have gleaned from your opportunity to have read the report. Sure it was nice to hear from him, but my concern is, what’s the timeline for all of these steps to begin?”

Less than 24 hours after hundreds of residents piled into Chilliwack Alliance Church to give Fraser Health Authority (FHA) bureaucrats a piece of their mind about a chlorination edict, E. coli was detected in the main water system.

It’s a question of where legal medicinal pot growing should take place Part 2 of a two-part series.

BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

S

ince there are 590 legal medical marijuana growers in Chilliwack and Health Canada has no rules that stipulate where pot should be grown, cannabis production takes place in commercial buildings, residential basements and agricultural outbuildings. On one rural road in Chilliwack, neighbours of a suspicious medical marijuana grow operation have had concerns for years. The property has an alarmed security fence, a large dog and fans that run 24 hours a day, seven days a week, inside outbuildings so large they dwarf the neighbouring single-family homes. But concern turned to outright fear last Saturday when at least 10 trucks drove down the rural road, each dropping off a shipping container onto the five-acre property. “I know myself what a small marijuana grow operation looks like,” said one neighbour on condition of anonymity. “I have no opinion about medical marijuana. But this is a commercial operation that is supposed to be residential. And it’s in the ALR.” Another neighbour expressed real concern about the dumping of plants, fertilizer and other chemicals and what effect that could have on their drinking water. “This grow-op appears to be under a time crunch and is in full gear expanding to a commercial size grow-op,” she said. “I have concerns that Health Canada will continue to allow the legal grow-ops in the rural areas. “Health Canada have legalized these grow-ops with no regulations and no safety checks. . . . residents need to know the risks to their water supply.” Coming changes to the federal government’s medical marijuana access regulations (MMAR) mean growing marijuana will no longer be allowed in homes but exactly what the new program will look like is unclear.

A Growing Conflict Feb. 26 - Fighting medicinal marijuana’s growth in commercial zones Part 2 - Use of farmland for future growth of pot industry is a major concern The proposal would see a number of larger commercial/industrial growers providing the marijuana, which could mean even small commercial operations will be forced to shut down. Last week the city received a legal opinion that said farmland and the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) is “an appropriate place to grow pot,” Mayor Sharon Gaetz told theTimes. This is of concern to the city given community interest that farmland be used to grow food, according to Gaetz. But also for tax reasons. “Residential and business subsidize farmers heavily and I think most people would be appalled to think they were subsidizing marijuana growers,” Gaetz said. Health Canada asked for feedback on the proposed changes to the MMAR up until Feb. 28. Those changes will come into effect April 1, 2014, with the current MMAR program

Layar app bringing your Times to life Thousands of readers are interacting with this newspaper in an amazing new way— are you one of them?

J

ust weeks after launching Layar—an app that brings the printed page to life—the Chilliwack Times has changed the way thousands of people read their newspaper. And if you haven’t tried it yet, it’s easy to do. All it takes is Layar, a free app that has erased the line between print and digital media through the use of augmented reality. What does this mean? Well, let’s say you are reading a story in the Times about a Chilliwack rock band, and you see the Layar logo at the top of the story or above a photo. By using Layar, that story will come to life. You see, not only can you read about the band, you can watch them perform or hear them play a song. Layar can also give you directions to their next gig and even help you buy tickets to their show. This technology has forever changed the Times, editor Ken Goudswaard said. “Layar is truly a game-changer—it has added so much more dimension to our stories,” Goudswaard said. “After only a few weeks of using Layar, a newspaper that doesn’t use Layar already seems out of date and out of

touch with today’s tech-savvy readers.” So, exactly how does it work? Layar uses your iPhone, iPad or Android smartphone or tablet to recognize images in theTimes that have been enabled for augmented reality. It translates these images into buttons and notifications on your device’s screen, allowing you to instantly view related videos, share articles on social networks, click on websites mentioned in stories and much more. And it’s easy to use. All you have to do is start the app, point your phone’s camera at the page, tap the “scan” button and Layar’s interactive buttons will appear on your screen. Tap any of them to be taken to video, image carousels, Facebook pages, Twitter and more. Many of the Times’ advertisers are also using Layar to reach out to their customers and improve their business’s bottom line. Layar allows advertisers to entertain and inform readers in a way that’s never been done before with the printed page. A Layared advertisement allows readers to share deals via email, Facebook and Twitter, buy products and services, book appointments conveniently without them needing to put down the paper and go to their computer, or take out their laptop, log on and open a program. “If you haven’t tried Layar yet, I encourage you to scan us and give it a try,” Goudswaard said. “We’re having a lot of fun with Layar and I know that you will too.” ◗ To join the more than 28 million people who have downloaded Layar, visit layar.com or your app store.

Scruffy man grabs female runner on Tea Pot Hill

M

ounties are warning the public about a man who grabbed a female runner on a popular local hiking trail last weekend. Police say two women were running on the Tea Pot Hill trail near Cultus Lake last Sunday around 6 p.m. when a man grabbed one of them from behind. The RCMP says the man grabbed one of the woman by the shoulder. She was able to escape his grasp and both women ran away and called police. “This is a really popular place for people to hike and run,” RCMP spokesperson Const.

Tracy Wolbeck said. “This is an isolated incident but we want everyone to be aware and alert when doing any hiking or trail running in the area.” Police say the man was in his 20s and wore dark clothing. The women described him as being scruffy. Mounties are reminding anyone heading outdoors to always tell another person where they are going and when they plan to be back. ◗ Anyone with information is asked to call police at 604-792-4611 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

SCAN TO SEE VIDEO SPECIAL ED, from page 1 Superintendent Evelyn Novak defended the district’s decision, saying the board needed Carter on hand to present the information and answer questions. “We acknowledge that parents may feel that it took a long time, but we did it as quickly as we could,” she told the Times. “I wouldn’t be able to do [the report] justice and answer the questions that the board might have. I don’t think there were any surprises in the conversation, but it’s important to us that the board receive that before we publicly proceed with any of the recommendations or suggestions.” Along with receiving the report, trustees approved another motion by trustee Heather Maahs directing staff to come back to the board before the end of May with an action plan for Carter’s recommendations. “We really need to get moving on these recommendations and do the very best that we can do for now, even with the resources that we have because sometimes it’s not necessarily about money,” Maahs said. “Sometimes it’s about doing the best with what we have and then if we get more money, great, we’re further ahead for it.” Trustee Doug McKay commented

Spend more money than we get that—even before the end of May—staff should find ways to work Carter’s recommendations into planning for next year’s budget. “Clearly dollars and cents are attached to almost all of the recommendations,” McKay said. Like many districts around the province, Carter said Chilliwack spends more money on special education than it gets (42 per cent more), and that frustration among parents and staff is “primarily attributable to what happens when very complex children are included in modern classrooms and resources are very very tight.” While his 15 recommendations suggest ways to improve local special education services, Carter said one “massive strength” of special education services in Chilliwack is the people. “I have been impressed, and on a couple of occasions, I really can tell you (you can check with my wife) I was moved by what I saw people doing, making do with what they have to do the best they can for kids,” he told trustees. Calls for a review of Chilliwack school district special education services were sparked a year ago by School District

No. 33 education assistant Kathi Friesen, who stood up at a board meeting and told trustees the district needed more accountability in its education of students with autism. Her comments unleashed emotional public complaints from parents of students with autism. Friesen and a number of those parents were on hand Tuesday. “I’m thrilled with Dr. Carter’s report,” Friesen said. “I really like all of his recommendations. As you know, us EAs have had a lot of frustrations, and I can see that you’ve taken some of our concerns seriously.” Autism is a frequent focus in Carter’s report. He called it a “flashpoint” among parents in the district. “If there were people unhappy, it was more often around autism than in any other category,” he said. He said the incidence of autism is “shooting right up” and recommends more resources and training for staff. ◗ For Carter’s complete report, see the Feb. 26 school board agenda at www. sd33.bc.ca.

On the prowl again.


Better late than never BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

M

ore than three years after a warrant was issued for his arrest, an accused extortionist is again awaiting trial after turning himself in. In September of 2009, Casey Sean Corbett—who was then 18 years old—and two others were charged with conspiracy, extortion and drug possession after police derailed an attempt to steal a half-million dollars from a Chilliwack man. He was later released from custody and soon went missing. On Nov. 19, 2009, a warrant was issued for his arrest. Last January, during the trial of one of his

co-accused, authorities still didn’t know where Corbett was—or if he was even still alive. Shane Werner, an acquaintance of Corbett, pleaded guilty to an extortion charge in June of 2011 in connection with the case. In January of 2012 he testified at the trial of the second man, who, because of a publication ban, can only be identified by his initials, A.K. In January, more than three years after his last scheduled court date, Corbett showed up at the Chilliwack Law Courts and turned himself in, according to Crown counsel Paul Blessin, who prosecuted A.K. Corbett appeared in court in January and was released on $5,000 bail. After a scheduled court date Tuesday, he is due to makes his next appearance March 26.

◗ Opinion

And the award for bullying

I

t’s kind of ironic, isn’t it, that the Oscars happen so close to Pink Shirt Day? After all, Pink Shirt Day is about raising awareness about the negative effects of bullying, and maybe even doing something about it. And the aftermath of the Academy Awards is just about the biggest, universally sanctioned bully-fest going. Kids who stop to think about it will immediately recognize the fashion-bullying that fills the entertainment “news” channels and yellow journalism tabloids, and overflows into supposedly more legitimate news venues, including top television news stations, news magazines, and national and regional newspapers (and some community newspapers will manufacture a way to dip their toes into this foetid pond, too). I was flipping through the news channels early Monday morning, still too early for all the Oscar winners to get to the hangover stage from their awards partying. I caught the tail-end of one “news” item in which Jennifer Aniston was being raked over the coals for wearing a dress that “shouldn’t have been at the Oscars.” And her hair was apparently not up to snuff, either. Not properly styled in the latest fashion. The comment went something along the lines of “yes, we like

BOB GROENEVELD

Be Our Guest the ‘Rachel hair’ [an allusion to her role as Rachel in her previous life as one of the stars on the hit television sitcom Friends], but she could have done something with it.” That snide delivery was followed up with a list of derisively helpful suggestions. Other channels were filled with comments about the “losers” who were judged by the Motion Picture Academy to be only the secondto-fifth (or sixth) best achievers in their categories in the entire entertainment industry. Children just love to pick on each other this way. Schoolgirls, especially, like to find fashionable reasons to ostracize their classmates who are not deemed worthy of inclusion in “the group.” The wrong clothes, or the wrong hairdo, or the wrong makeup (or no make-up at all, god forbid!) make the odd one out an easy target for a bully onslaught. The guys, too, can sniff out a failed trip to the barber, or an unfortunate choice of sneakers, although they’re more likely to pick

away at a brain too full of intelligence and not enough manly sporting aptitude. And why not? Why wouldn’t kids pick away at each others’ scabs like too many chickens trapped in a tiny coop? Our entertainers have somehow become our most influential and socially powerful class. And it sometimes seems that they and their publicity machines veritably exist to bully each other, with fashion-unconsciousness often the weapon of choice for the females of the species, and a shallowly questionable choice of a mate often the wimpy male entertainer’s soft underbelly. Meanwhile, we, the viewers and consumers of their entertaining antics, pile on, bullying them all into anorexia and a variety of other debilitating neuroses that too often result in fatal self-medication with illicit drugs. And then we cry for them. Oh! how we shed those tears of grief for a life lost too soon, before they could give us a few more wounds for our seemingly unlimited supply of salt! Turn off the TV when they start gushing about someone’s “wonderfully clever” backwards necklace while condemning someone else for a hairdo. ◗ Bob Groeneveld is the editor of the Langley Advance.

e see a police officer bit by an unruly night club patron. TransLink proudly proclaimed in a recent press release that the incidence of bus drivers getting beat up has declined “significantly” in past months—and yet the numbers remain appalling, and many are still forced to leave their jobs out of rational fear or because of the physical injuries they’ve already sustained. An entire public relations campaign had to be launched to keep drivers from running down flag persons directing traffic at road work projects. Indeed, the reckless behaviour of drivers seems to know no bounds anymore. Speeders and drunk drivers are joined on the highways and roadways by texters, tweeters, and talkers. A relatively new phenomenon is emerging, called “fire in the hole,” which involves pulling up to a drive-through window at a fast-food restaurant and ordering a drink, which is immediately thrown back to drench the (usually) young person working at the service window. The whole thing is often recorded and proudly uploaded to the Internet for public consumption and “entertainment.” Even setting aside how dangerous all of this can be, most of us will recognize this as obviously childish behaviour. But it is behaviour that, for the most part, is being perpetrated by adults, or at least, by individuals of adult age. With all of this going on, how is it possible to be surprised that bullying and general disrespect are rampant among our youngsters? If we’re ever going to clean this mess up, we have to take the broom into our own homes, and sweep out our own closets. John F. Kennedy once noted that “civility is not a sign of weakness.” Conversely, bullying is most assuredly not a sign of strength—neither for children nor amongst adults.

Ventilation will fix the problem Editor: John Smith turns on his industrial fan to vent his noxious fumes to the atmosphere and shortly can smell “Mary Jane.” I worked for years at moving air and am still good at it. John’s problem is his makeup air (intake) is in the wrong location, it would be the same with fried chicken or burgers. Methinks he would not protest so much.

He did not spend enough thought (money) on his ventilation system, now it’s everybody else’s fault . Alan J.Wilden Chilliwack

NDP capable of predicting future Editor: Much is being made right now in the national media about the controversies surrounding several members of the “appointed” Senate. Some people are right now stating that it is overdue that the Senate be abolished. These people are only about 30 years behind the times. The federal NDP made this one of their central issues back in 1984. I know, because I was the federal NDP candidate in Niagara Falls. We has two central issues that we were instructed to comment on at every opportunity. One issue was the illogical fact that retired MPs received large pensions after only eight years in service. Their pensions should be geared to the number of years of service, much like it is in all other sectors of society. We were ignored on this issue. The second issue was a call for the complete elimination of the unelected Senate. Everyone knows that the Canadian Senate is copied after the old British “House of Lords,” where wealthy individuals are rewarded for their loyal service to the governing party. This patronage system is funded totally by the taxpayers of Canada. We felt then, and I feel now that this system is undemocratic, completely unnecessary and should be eliminated immediately. In 1984, despite the fact that we made this a central

issue across Canada, the national media ignored us and therefore—the local media across the country ignored us. I recall going on the local radio station and focused on this Senate issue. The radio moderator did his best to cut me off and to switch the conversation to other issues. Now, all of a sudden, everyone and their cousins are jumping on the bandwagon. Where were these people 29 years ago? It seems that the NDP (as they often are) were 30 years beyond the times Once the national media and local media begin to catch up with the NDP, they may just discover a revelation, that the NDP can be looked at as an entity that indeed does predict the future for the betterment of us all. Are we now going to wait another 30 years before anything is done on this issue? Dick Harrington Chilliwack

Thinking of my kids’ future Editor: I find it interesting that Mr. Dix and the NDP oppose balancing the budget and even went as far as to say and I quote: “well, we might get around to balancing the budget in four or five years.” So there is the deciding factor for me. A government in waiting that will continue to pile on debt for my kids to pay off or one that will do whatever it can to reach a balanced budget to ensure my kids have less debt. As much as I was toying and tinkering with the NDP, I have decided to vote for responsible government. Sandra Robinson Maple Ridge

Editor: My civil and constitutional rights have been compromised by DPPL licences handed out by Health Canada with no regard to my rights to my health, security, and protection of my assets. Health Canada has issued three DPPL licences allowing a “contractor” to operate a growing medical marijuana business for profit next door in a R1-A zoned neighbourhood. Health Canada issued these licences despite the fact they contradict multiple Chilliwack zoning and business bylaws as well as the National Building Code of Canada standards, electrical inspections and B.C. fire codes. We have lost: 1- Our right to clean air free from noxious odors - the grow op is detectable 400 feet down the street; 2- Our right to reasonable safety and security as we are now open to a high risk of “grow rips and home invasions;” 3- Our right to the standards set forth in the City of Chilliwack’s zoning bylaws which are “trumped and unenforceable” by Health Canada’s lawless licensing; 4- Our right to recourse and reimbursement from damages resulting from an uninsured and un-inspected business now operating beside us; 5- Our right to a reasonable expectation of our home’s value, which has plummeted. Would you buy beside a marijuana grow operation?; and 6- Our right to insure our home—which is now uninsurable considering the physical risks next door. Does anyone care?

eing a strongman is different than being a man who is strong. Clint Maundrell is adamant about this. A man, or woman, who is strong might be able to flip a tire, sprint with a sand bag, pull a sledge or win a tugof-war contest. But it takes a strongman—one word—to put in the effort and training that will allow a competitor to complete those tasks faster, quicker than his or her adversaries. And it takes a certain mental toughness. “There’s more to being a strongman than just being strong,” said Maundrell, who won the competition last year and, having graduated, is training for a strongman competition in Edmonton next month. For the strongmen and women of Sardis secondary school, competing means

overcoming one’s fears and doing so before hundreds of high school classmates. Next week the school will hold its annual strongman competition. Male and female competitors in Grades 10 through 12 will engage in a week of strength contests at the end of which champions in each weight category will be crowned. There is no provincial championship. There are no scholarships to be had or banners to bring home. And yet the competition has become much more than a weeklong lunchtime diversion for students looking to test their strength. For Maundrell, the drive to become a strongman kept him coming back to school when he was contemplating dropping out. “I wasn’t really good in school,” he said. “It wasn’t really appealing to me.”

Sports STRONGMAN, from page 10 It was Sardis physical education coach Bob Fitzsimmons who encouraged Maundrell, then in Grade 10, to register—and train for—the 2009 strongman competition. Maundrell built his muscle and trained for the competition’s disciplines by lifting hay bales and heaving heavy chunks of wood in the backyard of his Greendale home. “There’s motivation and you have a goal,” he said of the allure of Strongman. “I hadn’t had a goal in a good two years and I had a goal again. I had a goal to do something. I wanted to do it bad. I wanted to place on the podium in my first year.” And he did: despite competing against boys one and two years older than him, Maundrell finished third in his first competition. His love of school did not grow over time. But Maundrell continued coming to class. The next year, he aimed for second place—and achieved that goal. In his senior year, in 2012, Maundrell struggled through personal issues that again tempted him to drop out. “In my Grade 12 year, I didn’t really want to be in school, I had a lot of problems,” he said. “Bodybuilding and training for strongman [allowed me to] ignore everything. . . . When I would go to the gym or I would sit out here and work out, in a theoretical sense it was my temple.” Maundrell describes winning Strongman last year as “like being on top of a mountain. It was like climbing that peak to perfection, to where you wanted to be. That’s what you waited for. That’s what you wanted to do. And that’s what I wanted to do. “When I placed first and they handed me that trophy, I don’t even know how

Record field of girls this year to explain it,” he said. “It was an amazing feeling to have people cheer for you and congratulate you and [to] have been working that hard to progress it that far for three years.” Different motivations Everybody, it seems has a different reason to compete. On a recent Saturday afternoon, a dozen students gather at Xceed Training Centre to throw sandbags, flip 400-pound tires, lift weights and do everything else they can to prepare for this year’s event, which runs all next week at the school. P.J. Retief, a trainer at the gym and former back-to-back Strongman champion, has organized the sessions alongside his brother Louis, a Grade 12 Sardis student. P.J. won Strongman in 2010 and 2011, the year he graduated; Louis triumphed last year. This year, the younger Retief says his goal is to keep the family name on top for four years straight. Austin Ensz has a much different motivation. “This year, I just want to redeem myself,” said a still-winded Ensz shortly after shuttling sandbags across Xceed’s cement back lot. Last year, as a Grade 10 student, he fared poorly having entered Strongman on a whim while on a diet prompted by an upcoming mixed martial arts fight. This year’s competition is about showing himself that last year’s finish was an aberration. Tori Kuhn, one of two girls training on the Saturday, said that while competitors are racing against the clock and each other, a camaraderie develops. In 2012, the battle for third place in the women’s division came down to a tug-of-

war between Kuhn and Sarah Muxlow. Both girls were determined to come out on top. But afterwards, Kuhn was satisfied with her effort. “Last year, when I lost against Sarah, I was actually happy for her,” Kuhn said. As a senior this year, Kuhn wants that third spot. “I want to make the podium this year,” she said. Now a school tradition Kuhn will be in tough, though. Seventeen strongwomen—more than ever before—have signed up to compete and this will be the first year the competition has two weight classes for girls. In this, its 15th year, the event has grown so large that organizers were forced to cap the total number of participants because of time constraints. That success is gratifying for Bob and Alison Fitzsimmons, the teachers who built the event into what it has become. The pair initially conceived of Strongman as a way to involve kids on the periphery of school sports. Since its debut in 1999 it’s become popular throughout the school, but Alison says it still draws students who aren’t normally at the centre of Sardis culture. “It’s a whole cross-section of kids,” she said. “I meet a whole bunch of kids in Strongman who I’ve never seen before.” Now, with cool kids and edgy kids and girls and jocks all taking part, the event has grown to the point where the two longtime teachers know the event they’ve created will endure even when they’re long gone. “It’s just part of Sardis now,” Alison said. “It’s part of Sardis culture and Sardis tradition and I don’t think it’s ever going to go away.”

HAFI adapts homes for B.C. seniors and people with disabilities Brenda has always been an active woman. However, recent health issues including osteoarthritis in her left knee and losing kidney function have slowed her down. Her mobility is limited and she is now on dialysis three days a week. To adjust to her changed circumstances, Brenda sought help with her daily living activities. Part of that help came from the Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program offered through BC Housing. Launched in January 2012, the HAFI program provides financial assistance to help eligible low-income seniors and people with disabilities adapt their homes so they can continue to live independently. Brenda applied for a new walk-in bathtub because she couldn’t safely get out of the tub on her own. Walk-in tubs include additional safety measures such as anti-slip floors, grab bars, and a very low step in. Home adaptations may also include handrails in halls or stairs, ramps for

easier access, easy-to-reach work and storage areas in the kitchen, lever handles on doors or faucets, walk-in showers, and bathtub grab bars and seats. Brenda is a strong advocate for the program and has even shared HAFI brochures with nurses in the renal unit where she undergoes dialysis. If you or someone you know is having difficulty performing day-to-day activities safely and independently – the HAFI program may be able to help. In 2012, HAFI provided financial assistance to more than 550 seniors and people with disabilities, making it possible for them to continue living in the safety and comfort of their home.

He knows how to answer our prayers

BY MIKE VANDERKWAAK Heartland Fellowship

P

rayer happens. A short energetic burst like, Oh my God! Or an artful Shakespearian type that uses old school words like thee and beseech. We are invited to communicate with a living and loving God. It can be for someone—an injured hockey player, a grieving dad, an anxious cancer patient, a heartbroken 20year-old, a faithful 80- or eight-yearold. The prayer can simply be in response to Jesus’s invitation to pray. Did you know Jesus prayed? And He also showed us a wonderful prayer often referred to as the

Lord’s Prayer. In the Bible, Matthew 6:9, Jesus says, “When you pray, say, ‘Our Father in heaven ...’” Notice Jesus starts with the word “Our.” Why not, “My Father?” Because we are all part of something greater than ourselves. All of us make up humanity and Jesus is saying we all have a Father in heaven. Out of the many titles of God, he chooses Father. Jesus himself called God “Father,” and says you can too. Though prayer is communication with a very powerful God, our approach can be as comfortable as a child coming to his or her daddy. Think of it—access to the God

of heaven is more inviting than access to the best possible earthly father. I can hear in my ears, my kids saying across the room, “Hey Dad, can I …” , or “Hey Dad, watch this!” Or calling for me from the other room, “Daaaad.” We are reminded that we are in relationship with a God who is like a father. Some of you have a wonderful relationship with your earthly father. Then talking to your Heavenly Father is a natural transition, it seems good and safe. For others of you, your earthly father has been deficient—maybe even abusive. As we think about our Heavenly Father, this is our opportunity to

They were taught by someone who has been there. The Father is in heaven. He has first-hand knowledge of what to do in your situation to bring a bit of heaven to you.

Back door slammed shut

fter their best season yet, the G.W. Graham senior girls basketball team still fell just short of securing their elusive first provincial championship berth this week. The Grizzlies had been battling for a back-door route to the BCs since losing their first game of the Fraser Valley championships Feb. 15. But their last hope was dashed by a 70-57 defeat at the hands of Yorkhouse in a wild card game Monday. “We came out a bit flat and nervous in the first half,” said coach Sarah Mouritzen, “but after being down 18 at one point, the girls fought back to get it with in five in the dying minutes of the fourth quar-

ter but just didn’t have quite enough.” The Grizzlies had a chance to clinch a trip to the provincials Saturday in the bronze medal game of the Fraser Valley’s but were denied 68-60 by perennial spoilers Abbotsford Christian, who have now stymied Graham’s provincial aspirations three seasons in a row. Grizzlies senior Kaitlyn McDonald, who heads to the University of the Fraser Valley next season, put up 25 points against the Knights, and Jenika Bannerman had her “best game in a Grizzlies uniform,” according to Mouritzen, with 29 points and a monster 18 rebounds.

Do or die time for Falcons

t’s do or die for the Sardis secondary senior boys basketball team in a Fraser Valley Championship game against Lord Tweedsmuir today (Thursday). The winner goes to provincials; the loser goes home. “We match up well with Tweedsmuir, and it should be a good game but a tough one,” said coach Kyle Graves. With a win, Graves (a Sardis basketball alumni) would lead his team to its first provincial trip in the school’s history. After beating Robert Bateman 78-30 in the first round of the Fraser Valleys last Wednesday, the Falcons went down 75-64 to Enver Creek Friday before staving off elim-

Enter to

ination against North Delta 82-61 Monday. That game was a “complete team effort,” according to Graves, with five players putting up double-digit points led by Grade 12s Ryan Mcknight and Mike Gregory. Mcknight came off the bench to hit four threepointers. Grade 11s Hayden Lejeune, Eric Rogers and Cam Servatius also chipped in more than 10 points each. Grade 12 Falcons captain Jason Kroeker also put in a great defensive effort to shut down North Delta’s star player. Sardis’s game against Lord Tweedsmuir tips off at 2:30 p.m. in Surrey.

Transform Your Kitchen!

Starting and protecting a garden Q: We recently moved into a home in Coquitlam. It is the first time we have owned a place with a backyard and we are excited to start a garden. I would love a garden from which we could pick delectable things to eat (herbs, veggies, etc). But we often get bears, raccoons, squirrels and others here. What kind of things fare well in this climate and do not attract wildlife? Also we have tall trees around our backyard and so only get a little morning sunlight. Siobhan Gatchalian Coquitlam A: Few crops meet all the criteria you have: the shade, the tall trees and hungry wildlife. I am including slugs in my idea of ‘wildlife’ because they can create havoc in many gardens, especially shady ones. Food crops that should fit your situation without a lot of extra work include rhubarb and strongly aromatic shade-tolerant herbs such as mint (invasive!), chives and parsley. Arugula and corn salad aren’t a favourite

ANNE MARRISON

Green Thumb of deer or slugs in my garden. Though slugs can eat fruit of alpine strawberries, much of it stays untouched. Raspberries are also shade-tolerant, but deer do ‘prune’ the stems in winter. Most kinds of vegetables and fruit for temperate climates do well here provided you plant at the right times and choose varieties intended for coastal areas of southern B.C. But none of it is totally workfree. Most successful gardeners in wildlife-active areas routinely do some protection and use avoidance tactics. For instance, slugs munch on many seedlings of plants which they avoid completely when the same kinds become mature. They don’t cross copper tape. Plastic milk jugs with caps

removed and tops covered with mesh make slug-proof greenhouses. Pet-friendly slug baits are sold in garden centres. Leafy crops tolerate part shade much better than fruiting crops do. Leafy vegetables include cabbage, broccoli, kale, arugula, spinach, swiss chard, lettuce, purslane (delicious but invasive) and many Asian vegetables like bok choy. Unfortunately, deer love eating leafy vegetables. Netting these (pea-netting or fishnet) does work. Also deer hate putting their faces in branches with multiple tiny twigs. It would be helpful to stay uncommitted about what you can and can’t grow until you’ve tried many different things. Most vegetables need a minimum of four hours sun while (sun-lovers like squash, tomatoes etc.) need much more. Location is also important. I wonder if you have a sunnier, or at least lighter, space outside your front

fence. Boulevard gardening happens in Vancouver frequently. Also climbing vegetables (pole beans, tall peas) can, reach up into more light – sometimes just enough to produce more of a crop than would happen with bush varieties at the shadier ground level. The tall trees around your garden have probably made a network of hungry roots in your soil. Also if you’re on a hillside, you may find your ground is full of boulders and not easily diggable. You’ll probably find it easier to grow food crops in raised beds and may need to bring in topsoil and some compost such as Sea Soil or commercial compost. These are general guidelines, but I urge you to try a bit of everything anyway over the years. Experience is by far the best way to find what works well for you and what won’t. ◗ Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to her at amarrison@shaw.ca.

Avoid getting in hot water

(NC)—Experts agree that few homeowners know their rights when it comes to door-todoor water heater sales. EnerCare Inc., a leading provider of energy efficient products and water heater rentals, answers a few commonly asked questions on ways homeowners can protect themselves from fraudulent door-to-door water heater salespeople: What are the warning signs that I might be dealing with a fraudulent water heater salesperson? When a salesperson says they are from your current water heater provider, utility or local municipality, ask for identification. Organizations such as Enbridge, Direct Energy and government agencies do not promote the exchange of water heaters door-to-door. If a

salesperson claims they are working on behalf of one of these agencies, chances are it is false. What steps can I take when first approached by someone trying to sell me a water heater? Remember that you don’t have to let the salesperson into your house. You have a right to ask for identification and to verify their identity by calling their employer. If the salesperson becomes rude or pushy, ask them to leave. What are some things I should consider if I am interested in buying a water heater from a door-to-door salesperson? Never feel pressured into signing a contract right away and always ask to keep marketing material and contracts for review. ◗ For additional advice and tips, visit www. EnerCare.ca/KnowYourRights.

Setting up a home office that works

(NC) – One of the biggest mistakes businesspeople make is assuming that working from home will automatically result in a higher level of productivity. Unless you carefully construct your home office environment, you may find that working from home is less productive than anticipated. Staples, the world’s largest office products company offers the following tips for setting up your home office to help maximize your productivity. The ideal working environment Home office setup is an exercise in knowing yourself. Before you make any decisions, make a list of the things you need to spur productivity. Some people can work at a desk in a common area of the house with the television running in the background. Others want a closeddoor environment where distractions are minimized. For some people, a home office is a place to finish up work from a regular day job. For others, a home office is a primary workspace where they spend eight or more hours of the day. Before you start rearranging the furniture, decide what you need as an absolute minimum to encourage you to use the space as intended. The right office furniture, equipment and supplies Once you have decided whether you’re going to segregate an area of the living room, convert a spare bedroom or set yourself up in the basement or garage, you should start thinking about home office furniture. The type of office furniture you pick and the way you organize your space will significantly impact your productivity. Whatever your preferences are, invest-

At the very least, this ensures that you won’t be tempted to relocate to the bedroom instead of working at your desk. Likewise, an upfront investment in office supplies and equipment will help you get your work done faster and avoid distractions. The cost of outfitting a home office A basic home office setup can cost less than $500 if you already have a computer that you can relocate to your new space. There are a number functional office furniture options that look expensive but are actually quite affordable, especially if you are willing to put the furniture together yourself. A printer and a phone with voicemail can round out a basic home office setup.

A more advanced home office setup would include a fax machine and a photocopier. Fortunately, there are threein-one office machines that combine a printer, fax and copier in one piece of equipment for under $300, saving you money and space. Don’t forget to set aside money in your home office budget for office supplies. From paper to paper clips, you will have to buy all of the little things that you took for granted when you worked for an employer. A home office is sometimes considered the Mecca for people who work. Who wouldn’t want a comfortable home oasis where commuting is a foreign concept and the work just gets done? To achieve home office nirvana, make a plan that is specifically designed to meet your individual needs.

Dumping out of control

the world is a wonder to see every day

C

hilliwack may bill itself as the Great Outside, but one popular recreational area is no longer quite so grand. Illegal dumpers and careless shooters are spoiling the west side of Vedder Mountain, according to Mark Steinebach, the president of the Vedder Mountain Trails Association (VMTA). Every spring, volunteers from the six recreational groups that make up the VMTA gather to clean up garbage on the Vedder trails and access roads. Since the annual clean-up has begun, the group has usually collected between seven and 10 tonnes of trash. The clean-ups, which have focused primarily on the busy southeast end of the mountain, have been successful, Steinebach said. Each year, volunteers cover a larger territory to collect the same amount of garbage. But recently, Steinebach and the VMTA have been alerted to a western section of Vedder Mountain accessible off Majuba Hill Road that has become littered with garbage and shotgun detritus. Steinebach said an ungated private road provides easy access to a Vedder Mountain forest service road. But many users are taking advantage of its remoteness to dump their trash. “That entire roadway, including the private property, has just become an absolute dumping ground,” Steinebach said. “I have ridden my mountain bike over there and I’ve seen it over the years and there’s always some garbage, but it has become particularly [bad] in this area.” Steinebach said one particular spot near several trails has become popular with shooters. “People have been going up there and shoot-

ing guns—some apparently automatic guns,” he said. Steinebach said the gunfire has led some trail users to abandon the area due to safety concerns. And there is also the mess the shooters leave behind: Steinebach estimated thousands of shotgun shells carpet the ground. Household waste has also been dumped in the area. “There’s garbage everywhere, and it’s yard waste, it’s household garbage and it’s industrial waste,” he said. ◗ The VMTA will hold their annual clean-up in March.

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

News WATER, from page 1 order that Chilliwack begin drinking water chlorination. Van Buynder immediately began by talking about Walkerton and the seven people who died and 2,300 people who got sick in that Ontario town in May 2000. “The message that got out at that particular time is that if we don’t do drinking water protection properly and we get unlucky with the bug that turns up, then this has enormous consequences,” Van Buynder said. He said there have been a number of incidents of E. coli and fecal coliform detected in the water system in Chilliwack since 1996, although that was mostly in hillside reservoirs. Chilliwack is one of the largest cities in Canada that does not chlorinate its water. “Thingshavehappenedover the last 16 years when there are times when your system is not foolproof,” he said. “We want to make it foolproof.” The city was first made aware of FHA’s concern when medical health officer Dr. Marcus Lem came to city council on Feb. 5 to say the city had to start adding chlorine to the water as a condition of its permit. Lem made a number of controversial comments following that meeting including that Chilliwack has “poo in its water” and that he wouldn’t let his daughter drink it. Gaetz said Lem was fearmongering, and Chilliwack MLA John Les was angered by the hyperbole. Les was first to speak Tuesday evening. “You mention Walkerton,” Les said. “You pointed out that what you would like to achieve in Chilliwack is a foolproof water supply. Chlorination in and of itself does not achieve that. Walkerton was a chlorinated system. The story of Walkerton was you had a couple of idiots running the system and allowing cow manure to run into the well.” Fewer than 20 people were able to ask questions and make comments at the meeting before Fraser Health shut the meeting down at 9:30 p.m. Ilja Kraemer said her father is allergic to chlorine. Judy Fayle said she suffers from third-stage kidney dis-

‘No plot’ ease and held a sign up saying that her dog wouldn’t drink chlorinated water. “How does putting poison in the water make it better?” she asked. Van Buynder replied “There is no plot by the government to poison the vast majority of Canadians.” A number of people said they were willing to take the risk of drinking non-chlorinated water. “I’m willing to take the risk,” said Stan Strahl (brother of former Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Chuck Strahl). Resident Bob Buhler suggested Van Buynder came to Chilliwack “to talk down to us” after which he read a detailed definition of the word “bullying,” pointing out that the next day, Feb. 27, was provincial anti-bullying day. Van Buynder said Chilliwack has a great source of drinking water but that no matter how good a job city staff do of monitoring the drinking water system, incursions happen from time to time and current testing takes two days to get results. He said secondary disinfection is the only way to ensure the end product will always be safe. “We need more than just really good water in the ground,” Van Buynder said. “We need really good water at the tap.” The city has said it is willing to increase the $3 million a year spent on maintenance, increase flushing from two to three times a year, and increase sampling from once to twice weekly. Director of public works Glen MacPherson said the city has also asked FHA if chlorination of the hillside areas could be done considering, before Wednesday, there had never been a case of E. coli detected in the main distribution system that serves 97 per cent of the city. A petition begun at www. chilliwackwater.com has more than 4,000 signatures. No timeline has been given for chlorination and anyone with questions not already answered on Fraser Health’s website can email them to waterquestions@ fraserhealth.ca.

GROW, from page 3 “These people, they don’t make deals with pens, they use glocks,” he added. The subject is so sensitive that neighbours don’t want to talk on the record for fear of reprisals, and the growers themselves are quick to lawyer up. When one local grower was asked about the expansion underway in their commercial unit, the Times was threatened with legal action. Gaetz said that after a number of complaints, the last time city staff escorted by the RCMP paid a visit to the rural grow operation in this story, they were met at the gate by a lawyer who allowed city staff in and refused the police entry. The mayor wonders why there is so much secrecy and clandestine behaviour given the legality of growing

medicinal marijuana. “This is supposed to be an above-board operation,” she said. “So why should people have to be afraid of things that they say? That would not happen in any other zoning issue in our city. It’s wrong.” One grower contacted the Times after the Feb. 26 story to say the topic was being sensationalized and the vast majority of growers are responsible and abide by the rules. Gaetz said that may be true but city hall hears a lot of complaints about growers who don’t follow the rules. “The only way that you find out is through complaints and the conflict in our community is not about ones growing responsibly,” she said.

But those who suffer serious medical conditions and who rely on marijuana to relieve symptoms fear the loss of personal production licences and the increased per gram cost that will come with the MMPR. Jason Wilcox suffers from a terminal illness, grows marijuana for personal use and is the CEO of the newly formed MMAR Coalition Against Repeal. He said the proposed changes will trample patient rights. “Our main concern is the barriers that may exist in relation to accessing medication,” Wilcox told the Times. “And the courts have already ruled that access needs to be fair and reasonable. “I can’t afford the projected prices.”

alling what Dan Sawatzky creates “signs” is in some ways a stretch of the definition of the word. Sawatzky’s creations at Imagination Corporation in Yarrow are whimsical sculptures that, yes, usually contain some words and serve as signs for businesses such as ChillAir, Bridal Falls Waterpark and the Hell’s Gate Airtram. Now one of his creations located right across the street from his fantastical new house, which is under construction in Yarrow, has finished third in an international award competition. In fact, two of Sawatzky’s creations were up for the Readers’ Choice award in the 2013 International Sign Contest put on annually by Signs of theTimes magazine. One is the hard-to-miss sign in Yarrow for Mighty Moose Ice Cream. The other is the Lark Rise Horse House sign in Mission. “ We are always really pleased when one of our signs or projects is honoured,” Sawatzky said on his blog at imaginationcorporation.com. “One of the world’s top con-

“We’re excited to offer this tour because it’s uniquely special in many ways. We’ve included a lot of extras in this itinerary that are simply not found in other tours, such as a visit to the gravestone of Chilliwack’s own hero, Victoria Cross winner Piper James Richardson” said Bruce. “There are a couple other tours that take in the main Canadian sites as we do, such as Juno Beach, Passchendaele, and Vimy Ridge, but we stay multiple nights in places like Dieppe and Ypres and that enables us to experience these areas in a more up-close-and-personal way. In fact all our hotel stays are multi-night so the whole pace of the tour is a little more leisurely than most coach tours.” This tour is exclusive to Rainbow Country Travel, Bruce explained, as he custom-designed the itinerary based on his extensive experience of the area. Besides war sites, highlights include 4 nights in Paris and 3 nights in Amsterdam, with unique excursions in and around each city.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Lie low, Aries. Don’t be the bump that gets flattened. Rest, nap, mull over your life. Ponder God, spirituality, charity, karma. Deal with government agencies and institutions. Handle administrative chores. But don’t start any new project nor seek new contacts. Ongoing ventures/people, and returnees from the past, are your only successful venues until March 17. Sunday-Tuesday brings sweet, mellow understanding – “stand down” in legal and far travel matters. Be ambitious midweek: show bosses what you can do (but nothing new!). Happiness, optimism bless you Friday/Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Hope and happiness flood in! You have a superb future – the two decades ahead will tend to bring your deepest wishes true. (If single, you might wed before September 2015.) Keep these thoughts as armour during all 2013, when self-pity might attack. This week, expect social delights, entertainment, friends and flirts. A former friend or lover returns. Don’t start any brand new relationships or projects before March 17. Mysteries, intimacy, sexual bonds, lifestyle changes, commitment and consequences rule Sunday-Tuesday. Love, understanding midweek. Be ambitious Thursday night. Gemini May 21-June 20: Start nothing before March 17. Protect ongoing ventures and relationships, especially in career and ambition zones. You might be asked to assume a former role/duty, or a former boss returns, or you need to face an authority who isn’t finished with you. Realize that a huge new career prospect is spreading out before you, stretching to 2025. Present bumps or delays in your plans might be merely the big ship of fate turning into this new career sea. Links meet friction Sunday to Tuesday. Sexy urges and financial changes are lucky midweek. Understanding, love, culture, Friday/Saturday.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your intellectual side blossoms this month. Cultural venues, higher education, far travel, love and understanding flow over you. As with any March, November or January of any year now to 2024, you might fall in love. (If this week, Wednesday/Thursday. The person is stubborn, inscrutable and sexy.) However, you should not start any new venture nor relationship before March 17. If love comes before then, it is probably with an old flame or someone you already know. Similarly, in far travel, it’s best to aim for countries you’ve already visited, etc. Finances, intimacy Friday on. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Start nothing new before March 17. An alluring, sexy person or a financial situation (or both) might return from the past – either can be good news, or bad – you decide. Research goes well, but a health diagnosis lacks conviction – a hint it can be wrong. (You’re protected in health right now, though blood sugar could be wonky.) Rest early Sunday: the p.m., to Tuesday, features creative and romantic lures – be skeptical rather than disillusioned later. Tackle chores midweek – success is certain! (If an old employer phones, listen.) Relationships are mixed, Thursday eve onward. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The world is full of challenges and opportunities this week and next. Note that both tend to be “repeats” of past challenges and opportunities – if any are new, your best action is to turn away, for new starts undertaken before March 17 are likely to spin in circles until they fail. You might fall in love, in a “realistic” way. Conquer the opposition Sunday afternoon to Tuesday morning. Otherwise, use these few days to rest, nurture family. Romance, creative urges and a winning streak visit you Tuesday eve to Thursday noon. Tackle chores, health late week. (Patience, Friday.)

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Tackle old, neglected tasks – drag them from the attic, barn or filing cabinet and clear them away. Your “post chore” life (March 20 onward) will be lighter, freer, more energetic and effective as a result. (Chores left hanging are a “psychic weight” that saps us of energy and drive.) But remember: don’t start big, brand new jobs. Travel, curiosity, restlessness wind through Sundayto-Tuesday. Double-check paperwork, facts. Your family, diet and retirement plans get a lucky boost midweek: job/income security is confirmed. Beauty, romantic notions Friday/Saturday: go slow. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Ah, sweet romance. An old flame might return, or nostalgia haunts your love dreams, or your present squeeze grows more alluring. The only thing to avoid is a brand new link, as relationships and projects started before March 17 are likely to spin in futile circles. Give honor where it’s due. Protect your money Sunday p.m. to Tuesday morning – a thorny, pothole-strewn path awaits. Buy NOTHING. Trips, errands, communications, light friends, paperwork – all succeed midweek, can spark romance, intimate talk. Thursday night to Saturday bring domestic concerns – act Friday morning. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The accent remains on domestic matters, kids, garden, nutrition, “hibernation,” naps, security, retirement planning, real estate. Start nothing new before March 17, especially in these domestic arenas. A home you once hankered after might become available early next week (the 10/11th). Rest Sunday morning. Your energy and magnetism increase Sunday p.m. to Tuesday – but you’ll spend more time quelling old fires/conflicts than in productive accomplishment – this can be a good thing, as it clears away old problems while new starts remain unproductive. Money’s lucky midweek!

March 3 - 9, 2013 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: It’s a busy but not important week, Cap. You’re hungry for movement, information and conversation. Don’t start brand new projects, and remain alert for mistakes, misunderstood directions, delays and equipment shortages. Sunday starts sociably, but by the p.m. (to Tuesday) retreat, rest and contemplation become a good idea. Be careful when dealing with institutions or government agencies. Your energy and charisma surge upward Tuesday eve to Thursday eve – DON’T start important projects, but do apply your increased moxie to solve ongoing situations. Late week, money’s mixed. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The main focus lies on money, possessions, memory, rote learning, and sensual contacts. It’s a lucky, confusing, and “swift spending” influence. Double check figures, transactions, know where your keys are, etc. Don’t start any new projects (especially in money) before March 17 –buy NOTHING major, as you’ll unfailing pick the lemons.You could have a hot but brief physical affair. Sunday gets interesting after supper, to Tuesday – friends, popularity, optimism, social joys and flirtations spark a happy mood. Retreat, rest midweek. Your energy, charm return Thursday night onward. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy and magnetism remain high – you’re attracting admiration from more than one source! An Aries, Taurus and Virgo seem to be focused on you. If one of these is an ex spouse, expect sparks. Despite this, avoid starting new projects and new relationships before March 17. Show your ambition, skills and “best smile” to bosses and VIPs Sunday eve to Tuesday. Frustrations and good luck mingle. Tuesday eve to Thursday suppertime bring happiness, optimism, popularity, flirtation, and entertainment. Someone could reveal their attraction: welcome it! Money’s mixed Friday/Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
