hilliwack Museum and Archives director Ron Denman has spent nearly three decades curating the city’s history. Soon, though, he will become part of the museum’s own history. Denman, 65, is retiring after serving 28 years as the museum’s director. A search is now underway for his replacement, and if all goes to plan, Denman’s long tenure will come to an end in late June, he told the Times. Denman came to Chilliwack in 1985, after previously serving as the director of the Museum of Northern British Columbia, in Prince Rupert. In the years that followed, Denman was tasked with managing the museum at a time when the Internet was profoundly changing the way people access information and connect with their pasts.

Ron Denman calls it a career after 28 years at the helm of the Chilliwack Museum and Archives “I’ve seen tremendous changes in the way museums do business,” he said. Under Denman’s guidance, the museum has digitized much of its collection, and people can now browse its collection online from the comfort of their own homes. “The technical changes that have occurred have allowed us to achieve so much more,” Denman said. “Our goal has always been to empower the community to understand their own history.” As a child, Denman’s interest in history was sparked by visits to the Royal Ontario Museum, where he remembers being in awe of the totem poles there. He also said the stories of his grandparents had a profound effect on him.

During his time as director, Denman said he particularly enjoyed the detective portion of his job that saw him and his colleagues probe the city’s history and find artifacts and people who could speak to its past. He cited the museum’s work on Piper James Richardson and last year’s repatriation of a set of medals belonging to one of the city’s pioneering families, the Cootes. “It always gives me satisfaction when that kind of detective work produces results,” Denman said. However, he said he hasn’t seen his vision for the museum and archives completely realized. “I regret that the museum and our archives aren’t in the same building,” Denman told the Times. “We’re sit-

ting on a gold mine here and I would hope that in the coming years, those who follow me would pursue the dream of a new facility that would allow us to become a regional destination. “We’ve been dreaming about this for years, but other priorities in the community have superseded it. But I hope our turn comes of creating a very inclusive destination.” That task, though, will fall to another director. One thing’s for sure: Denman, an avid dragon boater who will continue to live in Chilliwack, will be watching with interest and, perhaps, a little nostalgia. “I’ll definitely miss it, there’s no doubt about it,” he said.

CN staying on track with rail safety

Recent fatalities have put focus on local tracks BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

V

eteran CN Police Const. Darren Dyck has attended more than a dozen grisly train fatalities during his 32 years with the force, but most of the time he still manages not to get riled up handing out tickets for unsafe activity around crossings and tracks. Last fall, though, it got to him when he saw a mother put her daughter’s life in danger at theYoung Road crossing. “She takes her five-year-old girl by the hand, ducks under the gates and runs across in front of the train,” Dyck said. “It made me angry.” The CN Police was out in full force in Chilliwack Wednesday for Rail Safety Week, a national event aimed at reducing train-related injuries and deaths through a combination of education and enforcement. According to Operation Lifesaver, a national public-rail safety program, crossing and trespassing incidents across the country are on the rise. In 2012, there were 261 railway crossing and trespasser accidents in

We including two fatalities, and Tessier also have signage. We do enforce- fellow constables ramped up

patrols in Chilliwack’s main problem corridor between Young and Evans Roads. “That’s where we tend to get the most people going up and down and across and the most incidents,” Dyck said. “It’s short-cutting for most people.” Despite a tunnel at Edwards Street and the overpass at Yale Road, a lot of pedestrians still nip across the tracks to save time, risking a ticket or worse. Improved fencing under the Yale Road overpass has cut down the flow of trespassers, but fences aren’t always effective. “As quickly as you put up a chainlink fence it’ll be cut down the next day in some places,” Dyck said. Trespassing on rail property (which includes public crossings when signal arms are down) is a criminal offence under the Rail Safety Act, but enforcement alone is not the answer, according to Tessier. Engineering solutions, like strategically placed tunnels, overpasses and fences, are also important, he said, but changing people’s attitudes may be the most important piece of all. Toward that end, CN will make presentations at 20 local schools this year, Tessier said. ◗ For more information, visit www. operationlifesaver.ca.

CUPE staff vote 94% in favour of strike action BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he union that represents local education assistants, custodians, bus drivers and other school support staff has voted 94 per cent in favour of a strike that could herald some form of job action as early as June, according to a provincial union official. The Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE) Local 411 held the vote April 20 after talks with the Chilliwack School Board ran aground in February. But the union’s beef is not with the local school authority. “Our fight is with the provincial government; it’s not with School District 33,” CUPE K-12 provincial co-ordinator Bill Pegler told the Times. “The Chilliwack school district doesn’t have a significant ability to come to terms on the issues that are motivating the strike vote.” What’s motivating it is a push for a wage increase, something K-12 CUPE employees haven’t seen since July 2009. Standing in the way is the provincial government’s net-zero mandate that requires salary increases to be offset by savings from concessions in other areas of an agreement. But Pegler said the government hasn’t applied the mandate consistently. “If you’re looking for the meat of the matter, it is that support staff workers in K to 12 are not getting the same type of settlements we’ve seen in the public education sector in post secondary or in direct government, where there was an ability to come to some kind of terms that were beyond zeroes,” Pegler said. He cited the settlement with the B.C. Gov-

ernment and Service Employees’ Union that he said saw an end lift of four per cent. That has K-12 CUPE members frustrated, and 17 of B.C.’s 57 locals have already voted in favour of a strike. Pegler expects the rest to follow by mid-June and said local presidents are scheduled to meet May 23 to plot a strategy for job action in June and possibly the fall. “If we can’t get collective agreements in this sector, we definitely are going to be looking at job action in the fall,” Pegler said. There’s not a lot local school boards can do to stave off the impending job action. Like the B.C. Teachers’ Federation, CUPE negotiates at both local and provincial tables. Significant monetary and job-security issues are negotiated at the provincial level with the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association (the bargaining agent for school across the province) while other issues are worked out between union locals and local school boards. In February, local talks reached an impasse when representatives ran into items with a dollar figure attached. “There’s certain minor things that we can talk about and we did talk about, and we came to agreement on some of them,” local CUPE president Rod Isaac said. “And then some of them were declared a monetary issue, and that was that.” Without an increase in funding, there’s little more boards can do, Chilliwack school district secretary-treasurer Maureen Carradice said. “Our hands are tied,” she said. “It’s very difficult. The funding that we received this year is essentially the same funding that we received last year.”

News WATER, from page 1 Throness replied: “It’s much greener than the alternative, which is oil,” adding that IMW builds fuelling stations for China that replace ones using dirtier fuels. The focus of Tuesday’s meeting at Sto:lo Nation was on water and the many issues that can affect the local resource both directly and indirectly, including: chlorination, gravel mining, salmon farming and the proposed expansion of Kinder Morgan’s oil pipeline. But before they got to water issues, respected Sto:lo Tribal Council leader Grand Chief Kat Pennier asked the candidates about First Nations issues, pointing to the Constitution and aboriginal rights and title. “How are you going to work with us to make a good relationship so that we are all going to benefit for the future?” Pennier asked. The question took most candidates off guard, but Excalibur Party leader Michael Halliday summed it up: “I think this is one of the hardest issues that British Columbians face.” An underlying theme of the meeting was the concept of local control over water resources. This was asked twice: once in the context of the Chilliwack chlorination debate and once with regard to the concept of creating watershed advisory boards. The meeting’s sponsor, the WaterWealth Project, is a newly created environmental campaign that seeks a goal of “100 per cent community control over decisions affecting our local home waters.” To that end, the group has a declaration it has asked election candidates to sign, but most have so far declined. Throness said he did not support local control because, quite simply, water flows and provincial oversight is required to ensure one community doesn’t damage another. Both NDP candidates responded similarly. Chilliwack-Hope candidate Gwen O’Mahony said she still needed clarification what 100 per cent control meant.

We Can Help!

Respectful debate Both Chilliwack candidate Patti MacAhonic and Throness said that local consultation was important. Chilliwack BCCP candidate Chad Eros focused on the need for consultation with local communities with all matters, from gravel removal to pipeline construction. Throness emphasized environmental reviews as the way to protect water and to allow much-needed economic development. “If the benefits are greater than the risks then we ought to do the project,” he said, in reference to Kinder Morgan’s pipeline expansion. MacAhonic and others said that wasn’t working. “I have seen our environmental assessment process gutted in our province and gutted in Ottawa,” MacAhonic said. “I think the assessment process so far has been an ass,” Halliday said. All the candidates did reasonably well at the meeting, although moderator Kai Nagata had some harder questions for Throness and the two BCCP candidates. Henshall did not seem fully engaged, which was likely a result of a car accident he said he was in earlier in the day. Reimer was in friendly territory at the meeting and garnered the most applause in response to her statements. Independent candidate for Chilliwack-Hope Ryan McKinnon held his own, weighing in on most subjects. After the meeting both Eros and Reimer said on Twitter they appreciated that some debate was permitted. “Prob the only venue w [with] a bit of debate allowed. Need that,” Eros Tweeted, in part. “I do enjoy true debate, as long as it remains respectful,” Reimer tweeted. All four candidates for the Chilliwack-Hope riding were in attendance. Four candidates for Chilliwack were at the meeting, with only BC Liberal John Martin absent.

Rotarians get down to business Chillwack SPCA as election candidates grilled OPENHouse No shortage of promises, but club members want to know who’s paying

BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

R

otarians heard from the four Chilliwack-Hope election candidates Wednesday, including incumbent New Democrat Gwen O’Mahony who wants her job back, BC Conservative (BCCP) Michael Henshall who says he’s the “real conservative,” and BC Liberal Laurie Throness who says if you vote for the latter, you’ll get the former. Independent candidate Ryan McKinnon also attended to further his personal campaign against the Ministry of Children and Family Development which he says “maliciously” puts children into foster care. Henshall spoke first, furthering his message that the provincial debt has grown out of control under NDP and Liberal governments over the last two decades.

Throness harped on the small-c conservative vote-splitting theme, a message that seemed particularly tailored to a right-of-centre audience. “If you vote Conservative because you’ve always voted Conservative federally, the NDP are going to win,” he said. “Remember, in B.C. we are special.” O’Mahony reiterated the NDP platform message of “change for the better one practical step at a time.” Questions from those in attendance were on healthcare spending, education, taxes, gas exploration, foreign workers, campaign financing and pipelines. Collin Rogers (the Liberal’s Chilliwack riding association president) asked the candidates about public and private school funding. Throness said during the Liberal tenure there has been a 30 per cent increase in public school funding, while there are 6,600 fewer students than in 2001. He reiterated strong personal and party support for independent schools, pointing to Premier Christy Clark’s recent visit to Unity Christian. O’Mahony said the NDP had no changes planned in the funding formula for public schools. She added that she didn’t think the private system needs help.

“I’ve had no private schools come into my office with concerns about class size and composition, not one,” she said. Ron Sturm asked the candidates where they were going to get the money to pay for their promises. O’Mahony pointed to her NDP platform that she said was fully costed, adding that the party’s tax increases “are not going to affect 98 per cent” of taxpayers. Throness said the Liberals have reduced regulations by 42 per cent, the party has a balanced budget, and “we are a model on personal taxation in Canada.” Henshall called that spin, saying B.C. has “the highest overall taxation this side of Quebec.” McKinnon was succinct: “You shouldn’t spend what you don’t got.” Next Wednesday the same Rotary club hosts Chilliwack candidates, although that event is at the same time as an all-candidates meeting hosted by Pacific Developmental Pathways. Chilliwack candidates were also scheduled for a meeting in Yarrow after press time yesterday. ◗ May 2 the Chilliwack Teachers Association hosts a meeting for both ridings at 7 p.m. at Evergreen Hall.

The politics of B.C.’s debt

B

ritish Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli famously quipped that in politics there are “lies, damned lies, and statistics.” In the B.C. election campaign, there have certainly been a lot of statistics, especially about government debt. The Liberal Party has made the elimination of the province’s debt the central pillar of its election platform, while the NDP blames the Liberals for creating a fiscal mess. But how bad is the debt situation in B.C? We have heard repeatedly that government debt doubled in the 1990s and has doubled again since 2001. Total debt now amounts to about $40 billion. But the absolute size of the debt is not especially important. What matters is the size of the debt relative to income. If I doubled my income, I could comfortably double my mortgage and buy a house on Eagle Mountain. For governments, the standard practice is to measure the debt relative to the economy or more precisely the gross domestic product (GDP). In 2001, the debt was about 18 per cent of GDP, and today it is about 18 per cent. But is 18 per cent too high? How does B.C. compare to other governments? Well, the debt-to-GDP ratio for the government of Canada is about 34 per cent; for the U.S. it is about 62 per cent; and the U.K. is closer to 90 per cent. Japan has the

HAMISH TELFORD

Be Our Guest highest debt-to-GDP ratio, at more than 200 per cent. And, according to the CIA, Libya has the lowest ratio at under two per cent. B.C. is clearly not doing as well as Libya, but there’s no reason to believe that B.C.’s debt is spiralling out of control. On the other hand, if there is an opportunity to lower the province’s debt, it should be seriously considered. In the Throne Speech early this year, the Liberal government pointed to the possibility of developing the liquified natural gas industry in the north. The government claimed that the LNG could generate a huge revenue windfall for the province, enough to wipe out the debt within 30 years or less. Unfortunately, the plan advanced by the Liberals is purely hypothetical. If the LNG industry is developed (and before it can come on line B.C.’s electricity capacity needs to be greatly expanded), and if LNG sells at a sufficiently high price (and it is a very competitive global industry), and if the government is able to generate the anticipated revenue from the industry, it might be possible to pay down the

provincial debt. But there are no guarantees. Alberta already has a well-developed oil and gas industry, but the province is mired in deficits. The same is true in Newfoundland. So even if the LNG industry takes off here in B.C., it will still be a challenge for the government to balance its books and pay down the debt. I have never seen an election platform based on so much conjecture. For the sake of balance, let me stress that the NDP fiscal plan is based on certain assumptions as well. In particular, the NDP is assuming that it can maintain spending at the same level as the Liberals have over the last decade. But the NDP will be under enormous pressure to increase spending on health care and education and to provide salary increases for public sector employees who have gone without raises for years. It will be very difficult for the NDP to resist this pressure. As we head to the ballot box on May 14, we should bear in mind that old Latin phrase caveat emptor—buyer beware. It is our responsibility as voters to examine and evaluate the claims made by the various parties before casting our ballots. ◗ Hamish Telford teaches political science at the University of the Fraser Valley.

drian Dix doesn’t pay for his SkyTrain fare, Christy Clark ran a red light, Jane Shin may have changed her resume, Wayne Marklund was once charged with impaired driving and had the charges dropped but did plead guilty to driving without due care and attention—is any of this information relevant to making an informed decision at the ballot box? Or do all of these details of human failure or misjudgment, or imperfection merely muddy the water in an already muddy campaign? Some folks will say that the media should spend more time on issues, and less time on the frailties of human beings who end up in the political spotlight. After all, many of these folks have unwittingly walked into a battle that they have little experience waging. They didn’t think, several years ago, that their personal lives, their tweets, their letters to the editor, their driving tickets, their ugly divorces, dropped criminal charges, etc., would resurface when they decided to do their civic duty and venture into politics. Well, we’re sorry to say, but some of this stuff does matter. And, perhaps, more importantly how candidates respond to it resurfacing during political campaigns matters greatly. In our opinion, candidates who try to dodge questions on potentially questionable behaviour, don’t have what it takes to weather future political storms. Voters deserve human beings-cum-politicians who admit and learn from their mistakes, and don’t try to rewrite history. There is no shortage of examples in B.C. where elected officials have screwed up, and voters have forgiven them if they fess up and promise not to do it again. (Gordon Campbell’s drunk driving comes to mind.) But potential political leaders who seem unaware, or in denial, of their own dishonesty or flaws are doomed to repeat them— often at the expense of good government. We’re not expecting only paragons of virtue to represent us—but we rightly hope for an honest conversation with a lot less hide-and-seek.

Special day all about engagement BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

K

ids have a way of wading through the clutter and getting to the nub of an issue. “Bitumen really sucks!” That was how one student summed up what he had learned about oil pipeline spills in teacher Maida Hailstone’s environmental activism session Tuesday during Mt. Slesse middle school’s Do Something Day. Do Something Day is a grassroots U.S.-based service initiative designed to encourage engagement in local communities. At Mt. Slesse, kids took part in various sessions run by teachers. Some washed cars for charity while others painted fish symbols near sewer grates on streets adjacent to the school. From bat-box building to a read-a-thon, the program engaged children in many different ways. In Hailstone’s class, Grade 7, 8 and 9 students received a presentation from anti-pipeline activist group PIPE UP member Wendy Major. Major told the kids all about Kinder Morgan’s proposed expansion of its oil

TANNING, from page 1 how much time they want to tan without staff oversight. “Our belief and the belief of our members is that this trend needs to be stopped before it becomes more popular,” said Gilroy, pointing to England where selfserve tanning has become as popular as supervised tanning. But Zemora said he believes the JCTA is also trying to protect the interest of its members, including Canada’s largest tanning salon franchises that don’t offer self-serve tanning and pay a membership fee to belong to the association. “We’re not a JCTA member, but we follow their standards and then some,” he said. “But we’re being painted with the same brush as nail salons.” Zemora said Touch-n-Tan clients undergo skin typing and analysis by certified staff, who determine how much time they’re allowed to spend in the tanning beds. The computer system won’t allow them to add time or return sooner than 24 hours. Fingerprint technology and security cameras ensure only clients are using their keys after hours. Gilroy said his group’s opposition comes from following “best practices” to ensure responsible tanning.

Spencer Sprangers told the Times. “It would be pretty bad if it burst.” Major brought in a number of poster boards she has created and used in recent months that have information on oil pipelines and show photos of a 2010 oil spill into the Kalamazoo River. Students were then encouraged to either create a poster of their own or a PowerPoint presentation about the subject. The Times asked Hailstone if she was concerned about being too one-sided in the classroom, even though the focus was environmental activism. “The focus is on awareness,” she said, adding that she wouldn’t feel comfortable organizing a protest. Major said the pipeline issue was just part of a larger picture that includes climate change and, the subject that seemed to grasp the students’ attention most, endangered species. Hailstone said it was useful for educational purposes to talk about the pipeline because it literally runs through backyards in the neighbourhood.

New season, new optimism

Cornelia Naylor/TIMES

Offensive linemen and linebackers do battle in a drill at the Chilliwack Husker’s spring camp at Townsend Park last Saturday.

With the winless monkey off their back, the Huskers getting bigger and better

Faith Today

The only way to God is through Jesus offending people for thousands of years: “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Seems kind of narrow doesn’t it? But what if these words of Jesus are one of the most loving statements he ever said? What if he told us this not to offend us, but to direct us? Could these words of Jesus be him giving us clarity about who he is? Let’s take a look. Jesus begins by saying that he is the way to God. So where is God? God is in Heaven. That place we all want to go but just not too quickly. So the way (which is Jesus) becomes the entry point to a destination. He is the way for us to know and come

read the other day that when you walk into a Starbucks, you have approximately 70,000 choices as to how you can order a coffee. So which way is right? (For those of you wondering, the answer is a tall Americano with room for cream.) Religion is kind of like ordering coffee—you have lots of choices. We like choices. We encourage options. It’s nice to believe what you want. But then Jesus comes along and says something that at first glance seems really arrogant. In John 14:6 he makes a claim that has been

to God. Then Jesus says He is the truth. That means that the only way we can know God is to know Jesus. Now that may offend you—but let’s think about truth for a moment. Truth is always exclusive. Think about all the world religions. They all make exclusive statements. That means they can all be wrong but they cannot all be right. That’s why the popular position that “all religions lead to God” cannot be true. Truth is always exclusive. Jesus knows that we tend to make truth relative in order to justify our beliefs, especially when it comes to God. In declaring himself as

truth, Jesus shuts the door on all other ways leaving us with only two choices. We need to either prove he is a fraud or accept Him as the truth. Jesus makes an incredibly exclusive statement—not because he wants to offend you but because he loves you. He wants you to believe the truth about who he is so you can actually know him. Isn’t that what we all want? To be known? For any relationship to be healthy there needs to be the willingness to speak the truth. Not knowing the truth about a person is the very thing that will hinder and hurt a relationship. In his statement Jesus is clearly telling us who he is

and what he is capable of. Ultimately, he wants us to know him. But as in all relationships, we can choose to believe what is said or we can ignore what is said. We can accept or we can reject. So what will you do with Jesus’s exclusive statement? You can label him as arrogant and be offended by his words or you can hear them as he meant them—as words of love and direction. Either way you have to make a choice. I pray your choice will be to invite Jesus to be your way, your truth and your life.

Re-pot orchids every two years Q: Each spring get an increasing amount of moss. I de-thatched three years ago and overseeded last year. I aerate and apply dolomite lime, moss killer and fertilizer every spring and overseeded last year. Should I get my soil tested? Noel Gosal Email A: Getting your soil tested is a good idea. It’s probably very acidic despite the dolomite lime—and moss loves acidic soil as well as moist, compact soil. Could yours be compacted by a heavy mower? Moss also loves shade. If your lawn is shaded by tall trees, shrubs or other buildings, moss will re-grow every winter no matter what you do. Some people simply give up fighting moss. I have seen beautiful moss lawns. However moss doesn’t stand up to the wear and tear of children playing or a lot of foot traffic. So far you have tried chemical treatments. You might find that more natural remedies could help. For instance, have you ever top-dressed your lawn with compost or good topsoil before re-seeding it? If your lawn is overly moist (clay soil perhaps?), you could topdress with sand. Lawns are always healthier and need less water when the grass is cut longer than

Green Thumb normal. Another possibility is planting something other than grass. If your lawn is partially sunny, you could try white clover. Q: The flowers on our phalenopsis orchid are mostly gone and we are left with five flowers and very long stems and roots. Should this be repotted and cut back with new soil? Can it be taken out to a sheltered patio with partial sun and much light?” David Chia Email A: Orchids are usually kept in the same pot for two years before re-potting. Normally phalenopsis has surface roots. But if there are a many roots and they’re wandering down the side of the pot it should be re-potted. Re-potting should be every two years because the old bark begins rotting. The main element in the potting mix is orchid bark. You can buy this in garden centres. A little spaghnum moss is sometimes added to the bark but

isn’t really necessary. Orchid bark is used because phalenopsis orchids need good drainage. But they also need daily watering and misting because their roots are used to humid conditions in their native tropical forests where they grow on trees. Overwatering kills orchids, so be discreet but frequent in watering. The flower stems should be cut down to the base once the flowers have faded. A position outside on your balcony could go wrong. Phalenopsis likes day temperatures approximately 70-80 F (20-25 C) and night temperatures around 60-65 F (15-20 C). Day and night temperatures will often be too cool for your orchid. I wonder which way your balcony is facing. Partial sun is okay if it’s the gentle morning sun. But sun from the west or south can be far too hot in summer for such a shade-loving orchid. Your fertilizer should be diluted to one-quarter of the recommended strength. phalenopsis roots are very sensitive to salts and don’t demand heavy nutriments. It’s also best to fertilize only once every two waterings. ◗ Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Email amarrison@shaw.ca.

◗ Mow when the lawn is dry. It’s not adviseable to mow the lawn when it is wet. Slippery conditions can not only make it more dangerous to push a mower, but also increase the time it can take to tackle the chore. The mower blades can become clogged and coated with wet grass clippings, necessitating stopping and starting the task. Another thing to consider is that lawn diseases spread more readily through wet clippings. ◗ Let clippings fly. Mulching mowers, or those that just distribute clippings on the lawn as you go, can be healthier for the grass. They will serve as fertilizer and redistribute nutrients to the lawn as they break down into the soil. According to “The Organic Lawn Care Manual,” leaving clippings on the lawn will fulfill about 25 percent of fertilizer requirements. Plus, you save time bagging up clippings. ◗ Mow less often. Raise the mower’s blade so that the grass is longer in between cuttings. The taller grass will shade the soil and block weeds from germinating. It also helps improve soil’s moisture retention. ◗ Don’t cut corners. Adjusting a landscape design to have arches and curves can reduce the time it takes to mow and edge a property. Hard corners in a landscape will require more time to keep straight and pristine.

them before they even have a chance to sprout. Apply a preemergent weed control product as soon as possible in the spring and then reapply it about three months later to ensure weeds are eradicated. That equates to much less tedious lawn maintenance during the season. ◗ Plant a urine-resistant grass. Having a dog and maintaining a lush lawn has always been a particular conundrum for homeowners. Dog urine is high in nitrogen. While nitrogen, when applied in the correct ratio, can be a lawngrowth stimulant, in the large concentration that occurs in pet urine, it causes the grass to dry up and burn, resulting in bare spots. Replanting with urine-resistant grasses can help cut down on the level of damage to the lawn from your own pet or pets that happen to make potty stops on your property. The grasses most resistant to urine tend to be perennial ryegrasses and fescues. ◗ Wake up and water. Watering in the early mornings saves time and energy in the long run by fostering a tougher, more droughtresistant lawn. If you water early in the day, less water will be lost to evaporation. Limit watering to a few times per week, and less if you have had adequate rain. Avoid watering at night, which can expose the lawn to bacteria and attract insects.

Automatic irrigation systems

W

ater is essential to keeping a lawn or garden in good health. The trouble with watering is that it can be time-consuming, especially if your idea of watering is standing outside with the hose. But thanks to irrigation systems, watering has become a lot less hands-on. An irrigation sprinkler or drip system takes much of the work out of watering a landscape. Some can also be fitted to deliver fertilizer and weed-prevention products to a lawn. But before any digging takes place, homeowners might want to learn about the advantages and disadvantages of irrigation systems. Advantages One of the most obvious advantages is the time savings afforded by an automatic sprinkler or drip irrigation system. Once installed, many systems can be set to a timer to water at specific time intervals and on certain days of the week. This means there’s no need to worry about forgetting to water the lawn and coming back from vacation to find crisp, yellow grass. Another advantage is that irrigation systems, particularly the drip type, can be positioned so that water is more effectively targeted

where it is needed. Nozzles can be adjusted and underground drip tubes will deliver water right to the roots, rather than spraying walkways and driveways. Another advantage is that automatic irrigation systems are generally hidden from view, which means there are no unsightly hoses stretched across the lawn and no more tripping hazards. Sprinkler heads pop up to spray and then retract when the job is done. Underground drip systems do their work out of view. For families with young children and pets who share outdoor spaces, automatic systems may be a safer option. Disadvantages The primary disadvantage

associated with a sprinkler system is the expense. These systems can be quite costly depending on the size of the property. Furthermore, portions of the lawn will have to be dug up to install pipework and attach it to the plumbing system of the home. This can equate to days or weeks without use of the yard. Afterwards, the landscaping will have to be repaired. It is best to install an irrigation system prior to the installation of sod or extensive landscaping because some of it will have to be torn up. Homeowners who already have pristine yards may be turned off by this reality. Even the most efficient sprinkler systems can have their pitfalls. Wind can wreak havoc on sprinklers, directing water in the wrong direction. Underground pests may damage water-delivery systems, resulting in water pooling or broken parts. The repairs to fix an irrigation system can be much more costly than replacing a damaged garden hose. Irrigation systems have their advantages and disadvantages, and homeowners should weigh their options before installing a new system.

hen people travel to exotic places, they usually head south. When they explore exotic music, though, they often head north. It is in the spirit of musical exploration that the Chilliwack Festival Chorus presents Nordic Reflections, a spring concert that features a rare set of haunting and playful music from Scandinavia. Lands represented include Iceland, Finland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway in a “choral journey in latitude,” according to chorus director Paula Quick. While the sounds and languages may be unfamiliar, audiences can look forward to powerful and moving music that speaks of the pride of one’s rugged homeland and the virtues that have long influenced the mythology of western culture. But there will be familiar sounds, too: the “Finlandia” hymn, for instance—sung gloriously by a semi-chorus of men’s SCAN TO BUY TICKETS voices—or an extraordinary setting of the favourite hymn “How Great Thou Art,” which borrows its melody from a Swedish folksong. The concert is also a commemoration of the ongoing leadership of Quick, who celebrates her 15th year with the group this season. In recognition of this, the chorus will perform a retrospective of favourite Festival Chorus selections from the past, including Lauridsen’s “Sure on This Shining Night,” Frank Ticheli’s “Earth Song,” and “Exaudi! Laudate!” by Beverly Patton for women’s choir. ◗ Nordic Reflections takes place on May 4 at 7:30 p.m. and May 5 at 2:30 p.m. at Carman United Church (corner of Vedder and Webb). Tickets are $20 for general admission, $17 for seniors and $8 for students 18 and under. Tickets can be purchased through the centre box office at 604-391SHOW (7469) or online at www.chilliwackculturalcentre.ca.

The Nordic Reflections concert May 4 will also celebrate chorus director Paula Quick’s 15 years with the group.
