Owl habitat logging was legal BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
he Forest Practices Board says the company logging in mountain goat and spotted-owl territory in the Chilliwack River Valley has followed the rules, but its communication with residents was lacking. The report was issued this month in response to complaints about Tamihi Logging’s work—permitted by the provincial government— within a spotted owl wildlife habitat area (WHA) near Chilliwack Lake. The complaints, specifically, were
Report finds company’s communication lacking, enviros say don’t cut trees in protected areas
that the company continued to log after a rare owl had been spotted and that the company did not honour a promise to log only between May 1 to Oct. 31 to accommodate mountain goats in their winter range. The WHA near Chilliwack Lake was one of many created by the provincial government in 2006 for the protection of spotted owls.
But in October 2011, the Ministry of Natural Resource Operations cancelled an order that promised logging would not occur within the WHA, and replaced it with one allowing logging. That included 13 cutblocks given to Tamihi Logging, allowing for as many as 142 hectares to be cut. Since that time, the Wilderness Committee and residents of the
Chilliwack River Valley have protested the decision. The residents closest to the logging live in Post Creek, a recreational subdivision of 85 cabins adjacent to Chilliwack Lake Provincial Park. “My main concern is the spotted owl,” Post Creek resident Derrick Kramer said in 2011. “But secondly, it’s the last thing people see driving to the provincial park. It’s just dis-
gusting.” Board chair Al Gorley told the Times this week that not only did Tamihi do the legally required minimum with regards to communicating with residents, they went above and beyond. With regard to the complaint about the rare spotted owl near the cutblock, the FPB found “that the strategy to monitor the owl and suspend harvesting activity if the owl moved toward the cutblocks was a reasonable approach.” See OWL HABITAT, Page 6

record 150 people headed down to the water on Saturday to take part in the 39th Chilliwack-Vedder River cleanup. This was the second cleanup of the year for the Chilliwack Vedder Cleanup Society and participants included Mayor Sharon Gaetz, Chilliwack-Hope MLA Laurie Throness and former MLA Gwen O’Mahony. “It is always so encouraging. We have so many people keep turning out to make our precious waterway here in Chilliwack as environmentally friendly as possible,” Chris Gadsden of the society said. “On the other hand, not so much so that there is people that continue to be so selfish to keeping dumping their garbage, not only along the river but throughout many areas of Chilliwack and beyond.” Gadsden said the amount picked up Saturday added to the 82.96 tonnes collected since 2002. Carolyn Nickel and her three boys Tyson, 8, Lincoln, 6, and Dylan, 4, headed down to the Great Blue Heron Reserve and joined in the cleanup. Carolyn said she and her family love to spend time at the river so pitching in to clean up just made sense. Plans are underway for the next cleanup Sept. 29, the 12th B.C. Rivers Day event.

The Fraser Valley Flipout pinball tournament hits Abbotsford in September. Chilliwack’s Ted Sanders plans to be there. BY TYLER OLSEN firstname.lastname@example.org
A reawakened passion for pinball

here’s joy in this basement, in an anonymous home in an anonymous gated community. The joy comes from a retired financial planner, and from his eight pinball machines. The joy comes from his friends, who crowd his basement to play pool, have drinks and slam the flippers of the machines. And for Ted Sanders, the joy also seems to come from the thought of his wife, pulling back on the plunger, about to have the time of her life.
Passion for pinball
Sanders’s passion for pinball is relatively new. His first machine was an orphan, given to him eight years ago by his stepdaughter’s ex-boss. The game was trouble, working only sporadically, but it sparked the pinball fanatic that had been hibernating inside Sanders for decades. Frustrated with his freebie, he bought a game that actually worked. “If you talk to anybody that’s
involved in pinball—anybody—I guarantee you, that’s the way it starts: ‘Oh yeah, I think I’m going to buy a pinball machine,’” he says. “It never, ever ends [with] one machine. I guarantee you, if you went out today and bought a pinball machine and put it in your house, in

two years, you’d have at least two or three games in there. “It just gets into your blood.” Sanders isn’t alone in the Fraser Valley. Indeed, he and 50 others belong to a club called the Fraser Valley Flipper Freaks. The group boasts a league with three different

divisions; in September, the Freaks will host the Fraser Valley Flipout, an open pinball tournament sanctioned by the International Flipper Pinball Association. At first, Sanders says he doesn’t know why, or how, pinballs have such an intoxicating effect, particularly on players of a certain age. But further consideration leads him to a couple of answers. First, it’s fun. Obviously. For those who haven’t hit a flipper in years, it can be hard to remember just how joyous the ring of a pinball machine and the roll of a ball can be. With its rectangular playing field, bright colours and simple controls, pinball is a pre-Apple iPhone game; it’s no surprise, then, that there are literally hundreds of pinball games you can play on your phone.

Local search-and-rescue among the busiest in B.C.
H e at! Portable
BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
very year, hundreds of thousands of recreational users flock to local mountains, rivers, lakes and trails. And every year, a small portion of those people end up stranded in boats, lost on hiking trails, and otherwise in need of rescue. It should be no surprise, then, that a new survey of search-and-rescue (SAR) data shows that the region boasts the second- and third-busiest SAR teams in B.C.. On his blog, Oplopanax Horridus (you can find it at blog.oplopanax.ca)Coquitlam SAR search manager Michael Coyle wrote that only North Shore Rescue has been busier over the past decade than Chilliwack and Kent Harrison. Coyle used incident summaries filed with the province to learn which B.C. SAR organizations saw the most action. He found that Chilliwack SAR has received an average of 67 calls a year since 2004. That’s less than North Shore’s 83call average, but 20 more calls than the third-busiest Kent Harrison SAR. (Kent Harrison has actually seen its call volume drop in recent years; it’s

Nearly half of all Chilliwack SAR calls are water-based. among a large group of organizations clustered around the 45-call-per-year mark.) Coyle writes of the Chilliwack SAR: “The high call volume is out of proportion for the population they serve, but they are located in an area with access to several mountain ranges, many rivers, lakes and swift water, numerous logging roads and other backcountry hiking, hunting and fishing areas.” Chilliwack SAR past-president Greg Unruh told the Times that it’s not surprising that his 36-member group is busy. “We have the Fraser River and the Chilliwack and the Vedder River,” Unruh said, noting that around 40 per cent of the calls pertain to
water rescues. Add in all the mountains and trails, along with the fact that Chilliwack SAR helps support other area teams with long line rescues, and you get a team that can find itself handling a dozen calls in the space of a week. “You can live and breathe rescue for weeks at a time,” Unruh said. That can mean missed family dinners and aborted date nights. And yet, despite the high call-load, Unruh said the Chilliwack SAR doesn’t have too much trouble meeting the demand. “We’re pretty fortunate in Chilliwack. We don’t have trouble keeping members,” he said. “The thing about being busy is it also keeps it interesting.”

Sex offender back in jail BY PAUL J. HENDERSON firstname.lastname@example.org
high-risk sex offender who moved to the Chilliwack-Hope area has already been arrested for breaching conditions of his release. The Corrections Branch of the Ministry of Justice alerted the media on July 18 of Lackey’s release in the area. The 46-year-old was being tracked by plainclothes RCMP members and on July 19 after 9 p.m., he was arrested in a park in Hope, according to Cpl. Len vanNieuwenhuizen of the RCMP.
Among the 13 courtordered conditions Lackey faced upon his release was an order to not attend parks or pools, a standard condition for sex offenders. “Our plainclothes officers were very diligent and worked long hours in conducting surveillance and monitoring Lackey’s behaviour,” he said. “The safety of the community was our paramount concern. When notification was made of Lackey’s release, we acted swiftly to put this surveillance plan in place.” Lackey was held over the weekend and was in court
OWL HABITAT, from page 1 As for the company promising not to log in winter and then changing that plan, the FPB found consultation was “not effective.” “It is the Board’s view that the licensee changed its plan without adequate explanation, and that for the complainants and other members of the public aware of this complaint, confidence in the licensee’s management of B.C.’s forest resources has been diminished.” That’s not exactly a scathing criticism, particularly from a body with no enforcement powers. So would the FPB recommend government force companies to do more? Gorley says “no.” “Peer pressure and public pressure will be the important route,” he said. Gwen Barlee, policy director with theWilderness Committee, said studies have been done asking corporations why they comply with environmental standards and the top answer
Monday facing three charges of breach of probation. This is the second time this year Lackey—who has 37 convictions dating back to 1989, including 17 sex-related convictions, and a dozen for violating sentencing conditions—has been arrested for breaching conditions of his release. The last time it took just 24 minutes before he violated his release conditions by going to a pub and having a beer. After that incident in Langley, he was arrested and sentenced to a further five months behind bars.
is regulations. “I do believe that public shaming and media attention play a very important role but at the end of the day, they don’t replace strong legislation,” she told theTimes. Neither these specific complaints nor the FPB response, however, get to the real concern about what has gone on near Post Creek, according to Barlee. “In this case I would say even if the company had done as superlative job of communicating with residents, it still wouldn’t excuse the fact that you are logging across from a subdivision . . . , that it’s affecting the water supply, you are logging in [mountain goat] winter range and logging in spotted owl habitat. “To me those are the real issues, not the fact that the company needs to tweak their communications a bit.”

Response times lagging BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
mbulance response times to serious health events are improving in Chilliwack, but they still lag well-behind recognized standards. A BC Ambulance Service (BCAS) report on response times was obtained by ex-air ambulance pilot Hans Dysarsz and forwarded to the Times. In 2012, the average response time in Chilliwack was 10 minutes and 44 seconds for a Code 3 event, during which an ambulance activates its lights and sirens. That was 20 seconds quicker than the 2011 average. Those times aren’t slow compared to other B.C. communities, but they still fall short of common industry targets. The U.S.-based Commission on Accreditation of Ambulance Services suggests a standard response time of eight minutes and 59 seconds, 90 per cent of the time.
The BCAS itself says it strives to achieve a “nine-minute response time target for urgent calls in urban areas.” But only 11 communities in B.C. met that goal. All but one of those were located on Vancouver Island. By comparison, ever y ambulance trust in the United Kingdom met that country’s national standard of eight minutes, 75 per cent of the time in 2011. In an emailed statement, the BCAS told the Times: ”The response time target is a challenge for emergency medical services across North America. BCAS is not currently aware of another North American jurisdiction meeting the response time target.” While most cities had response times between 10 and 12 minutes, residents of smaller communities had to wait longer. Agassiz had an average response time of 16 minutes, 30 seconds in 2012, a 47-second improvement over the previous year. In Harrison Hot Springs the average wait was
17 minutes, 51 seconds, up from 17 minutes, 26 seconds in 2011. And in Cultus Lake, the average 2012 response time was 20 minutes, 17 seconds, down from 20 minutes, 49 seconds in 2011. “No matter which way one looks at these numbers, they are utterly unacceptable for any western country, never mind a country like Canada,” wrote Dysarsz, who helped start Alberta’s STARS air ambulance service. “The BC Ambulance Service is anything but a world-class service; at best, and only in our high-density urban areas, we have a second-class EMS system and our rural areas have a third-class EMS system.” The BCAS said population growth and emergency room delays “put pressure on ambulance response times in urban and metropolitan communities.” It said it’s working to speed up response times by making “improvements to dispatch process and technology, reducing emergency department delays and working closely with first responders.”

Lakers don’t own Cultus A couple months back, I found myself dismayed that Chilliwack doesn’t have an expansive, green and verdant showcase park. Most cities its size—or smaller—have such a city park, one that is home to spray parks and fundraising walks and birdfeeding seniors and beer-stashing teens. Chilliwack, though, doesn’t—or so I thought. Then, just as I was about to write an (ill-considered) column, I remembered: Cultus Lake Park. Yes, it’s out of the way (if only we could find a way to move it 10 kilometres north without angering the Agricultural Land Commission), but Cultus is that summer-day retreat Chilliwackers deserve. Or it should be. Unfortunately, the park— which is owned by the City of Chilliwack—is, or was, too big and beautiful for just the residents of Chilliwack. Now, it’s a playground for the whole freaking Lower Mainland, which makes it decidedly less attractive for, say, local canoeists who don’t want to be decapitated by a speedboat propeller. It’s also now home to a bunch of people—because why would you want a park when you can lease that parkland for a
Win,Lose orTy princely sum? Now comes the news that the people who live in the park have started a petition to assume control of what happens at Cultus Lake Park. And by assume control, I mean take it from the park’s owners, a.k.a. the City of Chilliwack. The petitioners are right that the current system looks, at first glance, to be unjust. Residents elect just two of seven commissioners. The rest are elected by the citizens of Chilliwack. So, for clarity’s sake, let’s put it a different way. Essentially, the Cultus Lake Park Board is a not-so glorified strata council. Just imagine the park as a strata-controlled building and the park-dwellers as renters. That’s the situation at Cultus Lake, with just one catch: one day, those owners, in a fit of generosity, allowed the renters two seats on council. Now imagine that those renters start a petition to replace
the owners on council with fellow renters. That’s what’s happening now. Of course, it’s in the renters’ rights to want more power, just as it is the right of everyone else to decline to sign their petition. The problem at Cultus Lake is that the owners—that would be the residents of Chilliwack— don’t really understand what’s going on. Because of the unique way Cultus Lake is governed—like a strata, but with a council elected at the same time as municipal politicians—it’s easy for all concerned to think that Cultus Lake residents are getting screwed. (It also means we don’t pay enough attention to whom we elect to the park board.) The fact is, Cultus Lake Park is not a municipality. It’s a park that belongs to the residents of Chilliwack. This is not something new that has been sprung on park residents, it’s the way it has been since they moved in. Renting can be frustrating—especially when you have absentee landlords who don’t really know they are landlords. But if all it takes is a petition to take over a rental property, well, I want a refund on the townhouse I just bought.
ogs are amazing creatures that have an uncanny ability to provide insights into human behaviour. Their deep and profound devotion to a “master” often mirrors our own penchant for religiosity. Physically, dogs and people have a lot in common with each other and with most other mammals—two eyes, two ears, a nose, a mouth and four limbs. But there are significant differences that some people just can’t seem to comprehend. Those differences can mean a lot, especially when the weather turns hot, as it has in the past little while. One of the big differences is that some people are stupid and dogs can’t tell the difference. In some ways, dogs are like fanatically religious human beings: To them we are gods. A dog whose religious devotion has been effectively nurtured, will blindly follow its “god” anywhere and into any conditions. And dogs have a knack for appearing happy whenever they are in the presence of their god. That’s why you might see a dog sitting on a hot slab of pavement on a 30-degree day, sporting a huge grin, looking adoringly up at his god, with tongue lolling in apparent ecstasy. The dog doesn’t know that his god is stupid. Because his god doesn’t know that the dog is dying out there—literally. One basic difference between us human mammals and the canine variety is that we sweat better than they do. In fact, dogs sweat only from their feet. And when that tongue is hanging out as far as the dog can get it, the motivation is not joy; it’s the only other way the dog has to dissipate the excruciating heat that is building up in its body from the sun beating its rays down relentlessly, and the pavement radiating heat up, equally relentlessly.

Many thanks to unknown people who helped out
Editor: My family and I need to express our gratitude to some amazing people. The problem is that we do not know who they are. On July 5, I lost my wallet at Superstore. But a kind soul handed my wallet into the store, with all of the money still inside. On July 7, our family was at the Sunnyside Campground on Cultus Lake with some friends. In that one moment when we turned away from the water, our four-and-a-half year old daughter fell off of her floatie in water that was too deep for her. A woman (an angel!) who was swimming nearby, scooped up our daughter and saved her. Our family is so very grateful to both of these amazing people. We do not know who you are, but we promise to pay it forward. Theresia & Chris Reid Chilliwack
Sadness over stolen cats Editor: We have a big sad ache because we are sure that two of our cats were stolen on Tuesday night, nearly
Send us a letter TO INCLUDE YOUR LETTER, use our online
midnight, July 16. We have checked with Animal Control, the SPCA and Safe Haven: No. We have hiked the equivalent of 10 kilometres, circling around every alley and block in a halfkilometre radius, checking every bush, weed growth, backyard and balcony. Please, readers of Chilliwack Times, can you possibly help us? We have five cats, most of whom are 13 to 15 years old. On the night of July 16, three Caucasian young people in their 20s—a tall male, a short male, and an average-height female—were observed petting three of our cats who were lounging at our alleyside enjoying the hot air. The three people
lingered a bit too long and were politely asked to move on. The men left, but returned to the woman who continued petting Kiddo, our gray cat, while Mother Mary and Marko, our other two cats, looked on. At last all three people left. A short time later, Kiddo was still there, but our other two cats had disappeared, and are still gone. After round the clock searching, we believe they were stolen. Please help bring Mother Mary and Marko home to us. They’ve been in our family since they were kittens. Mother Mary is 15 years old, a very large long-haired orange and black (tortoiseshell) Maine Coon. Marko is 13 years old, a very large,
slim seal-point (dark) Siamese, with a round head and blue cross-eyes. Mother Mary and Marko are both very “talkative.” “Finders keepers, losers weepers” is a stupid kids’ rhyme that does not allow you to steal pets. The people who did this do not love animals, they caused trauma and stress to these old-timers as well as to us. We have Charlie, a tiny old runt cat, who considers Mother Mary his mama. Charlie keeps waiting at the alleyside for his Mary to come home. If someone on the street offers to sell or give you a cat, please do not take it, but try to get the thief’s name and phone number and report this to the police. Please let us know if you see the cats. Leave a message at 604-793-0554. Or come to our big white and blue house on 9300 block Williams Street. Today, when we did more searching, we passed two other nearby households searching for their missing pets, taken off their properties. We would like these heartless, selfish thefts to stop. Ruth Lowther Chilliwack
Churches play important role
the spirit of what was once called “Love Chilliwack,” our church organized a blitz with some 150 volunteers who provided free car washes, free barbecue lunches, free oil changes, went to peoples homes and to community resources places and did clean up, housework, carpet cleaning, yardwork, painting and more to help out in their community. Salvation Army is also part of the church community as is Ruth and Naomi’s and they provide food, hot meals, shelter and services to many who are in need of help. People from the church also provide volunteer help, and I believe food and other donations, to these programs. Much of what the church does saves tax dollars by the volunteer services and donations they provide to those in their community and they are more than deserving of taxfree status. I would venture to say if the church was to pay tax, and to receive the appropriate deductions for the community services and contributions they provide, then taxpayers may actually owe money to many of the local churches. Food for thought. Elizabeth Snerle Chilliwack
Editor: I would like to respond to the July 18 letter to the editor entitled “Churches need to pay their own way” by Norm Keller. I believe Mr. Keller does not understand the role churches play in the community. The church is made up of local residents who, as well as paying their residential and business taxes, do significantly contribute through church tithes and offerings and volunteer programs, giving back, working in partnership with many other agencies, giving in ways that actually save taxpayer dollars. The church I attend, alone, which is just one of many in this community, is providing programs for adults and children effected by divorce, a recovery program for those struggling with drug and alcohol addiction, a free after-school program for kids at Bernard elementary, mentorship program matching teenage boys in foster care with male mentors, large teams of volunteers to help make events like Chilliwack Connect happen, and much more.

want to tell you about two Kings. The first one was born this week. He may not wear the crown yet—but one day he will. He is of Royal descent and what lies before him is what movies and dreams are made from. His future is already decided. He will grow up in a palace with all the benefits of being a prince. Servants, fine food, the best education. He has it all. It’s apparently what many of us dream about. His birth has taken the world by storm, and now that he’s here you can finally order that limited edition tea cup set with his name on it. Once you receive it, you’ll be able to sit and drink from it for the next 50 years while looking at millions of pictures delivered by the
A tale of two kings paparazzi reminding you of what you will never be—royalty. The other King was born 2000 years ago. His arrival was under the radar. There was no paparazzi or media coverage. His parents had no money; in fact they didn’t even have a place to stay when his mother went into labour. Their only option was a barn. It’s where this King was born. He had no security and there was no worldwide announcement of his birth. Only a handful of shepherds heard the news. His future was already decided. He would grow up in a common home with no servants,
eat normal food and receive a homemade education. Then, at the age of 30 he would begin to show the world that he was royalty. He taught with great wisdom, performed amazing miracles, modeled servant leadership and declared himself not only King but the King of Kings! In case you don’t know this king, His name is Jesus. He came from the royal line of God. Not many people give him the worship he deserves. He’s mostly ignored and often defined only by religion. Yet what he offers is astounding. You see, Will and Kate’s son offers us a peek into the
power of status. The birth of their son allows us to dream a little and see what it would be like to be born into royalty. God’s Son offers us more than just status but substance transitioning our dream of being royalty into reality. He actually invites you to become his son or daughter. He adopts us into his royal line when we accept him as our King. Jesus doesn’t leave us on the outside looking in. Rather, he invites us inside the palace and gives us all the rights and privileges of being a child of the King. The Bible explains it like this: “But when the right time came,

God sent his Son . . . to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that he could adopt us as his very own children. And because we are his children, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts. . . . Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child. And since you are his child, God has made you his heir” (Galatians 4:4-7). When we make Jesus our King we become heirs giving us access to all that he is. You see, the Kings of this world will always leave you standing outside their kingdom. But Jesus, the King of Kings invites you into his kingdom. Which King will you choose?

t’s probably too soon to expect a British Columbia Football Conference championship for the Valley Huskers. After all, this is a team that closed its last season with its first win in three years. But as the Huskers prepare to kick off their 2013 campaign in Kelowna this weekend, head coach Tyson St. James and the club’s supporters finally have reason to believe they can compete with the other BCFC teams. The Huskers lost a controlled scrimmage 28-6 to the Langley Rams last Saturday. While no one likes to lose, the Rams are the BCFC’s reigning champions, and St. James was satisfied with his defence’s performance in the second half. (Just scrimmaging should give the Huskers a leg up on this weekend’s opponent, the Okanagan Sun, who didn’t see any preseason action.) St. James is hoping a new crop of recruits, along with a more experienced core of returnees, willhelpsparktheHuskersrevival thisseason.

Chilliwack Huskers receiver Dylan Boykowich carries the ball during Saturday’s exhibition game. The offensive line, which was the jello-like foundation upon which last year’s offence crumbled, is markedly better from last year, St. James said. But it still needs some work. “ T h e re’s a l w a y s w h a t you want to see in your offensive line and there’s what you have,” he told the Times. “I feel we’ve gotten about 25 to 50 per cent bet-
ter in that area. . . . Compared to last year, we can actually do some protection.” Who, exactly, that line is protecting is also a work in progress, though. With last year’s quarterback, Braden Churly, not returning this year, St. James spent the winter trying to find a new pivot. Those efforts all fell through—it
turns out failing to protect your quarterback one season makes it more difficult to recruit his replacement the next year. “We had some guys who were thinking about coming here, but didn’t,” St. James said. Instead, the Huskers will turn to a familiar face to take snaps.

that develops,” he said. “He did it for a long time playing community football so he definitely has been there before as far as a leadership role, and that really is part of the quarterback thing. It’s not just how far you throw it, it’s what you do with the team.” In the air, Parray will look to fellow Giant alum Dylan Boykowich, whom St. James called the star of last weekend’s scrimmage, and Abbotsford’s Peter Johns, who also had a good game. Running the ball will be a pair of Manitoba products: newcomer Benedict Muhima and third-year veteran Ty DeRayos. Mike Wiens will anchor a defensive line that St. James
HUSKERS, from page 11 Cody Parray, who spent the last two seasons playing receiver for the Huskers, looks set to start Saturday behind centre. Parray is familiar with the position and all the responsibility it entails, having quarterbacked the Chilliwack Giants midget squad to the provincial championship in 2009. So far, St. James has been impressed, both before and after the snap. “He’s been pretty good there. I’m excited to see how
says is much improved from a year ago. “Our interior wasn’t that strong last year, and I feel that we’ve got a lot better,” he said. But while St. James is confident his team is better, just how much improved remains to be seen. He said this Saturday’s game is one full of unknowns. The Sun have a new head coach and, with it, a new defensive scheme. The Huskers, meanwhile, hope to have an offence that, for the first time in four years, can put the Sun on their back feet. “They don’t know what our offence is doing . . . and we don’t know a lot about them,” St. James said.

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

Chiefs stingy at the back BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
ith a month left until training camp begins, the Chilliwack Chiefs’ 2013-14 roster is rounding into shape. It’s been a busy off-season for Chiefs head coach and general manager Harvey Smyl as the BCHL playing careers of close to half the Chiefs’ players came to an end with their second-round defeat to the Surrey Eagles. In the goal crease and on the blue line, especially, the Chiefs look likely to remain a stingy team defensively. By trading forTrail Smoke Eaters veteran netminder Lyndon Stanwood, and with returning backup Josh Halpenny continuing to improve, Smyl has a decent goaltending tandem with the potential to be very good. In front of them, the defence corps is also beginning to come together. Twenty-year-old returnees Kiefer McNaughton and Cooper Rush look to be back, as is the rock-steady Eric Roberts. They’ll be joined by Carter Cochrane, the smooth-skating 16-year-old brother of forward Tanner Cochrane, who looked eager and able to jump into the rush at spring camp. Meanwhile,TJ Roche, a big defenceman who played prep hockey last year in Connecticut, reported on Twitter that he would be heading to Chilliwack next year. The Chiefs have yet to confirm his addition. Up front, there’s more work to be done, although Smyl and his crew have made progress. Currently, overage forwards Tanner Cochrane, Mathieu Tibbet and Tanner Burns are all listed on the Chiefs’ roster, along with Jaret Babych and Austin Plevy, who are a year younger.
Lyndon Stanwood was acquired to shore up the Chiefs’ goaltending. So far this summer, the Chiefs have added 18-year-old Ben Butcher and 16-year-old Mitch Plevy. Blake Gober, an 18-year-old Texan, also announced on Twitter that he’ll be joining the Chiefs—although that too has yet to be confirmed by the club. (With a Butcher, a Babych and a Smyl all sharing the same dressing room, Chiefs president—and former Canucks vice-president Glen Ringdal—said this year’s club is starting to sound a whole lot like the Canucks of old). “Things are slowly coming together,” Smyl said. “I kind of like where everything is going.” He said he is particularly pleased with the recruiting class’s combination of youth and skill. “I like the talent level in combination with the age of the talent.” And Stanwood’s addition was particularly pleasing. “We’ve seen him for a couple years and he’s played extremely well against us and very well against other teams,” Smyl said. Still, the work isn’t done. “We’re still looking and still trying to find players for all positions,” he said.

Saddle bronc gal: Kaila Mussell Chilliwack cowgirl might be the only female bronc rider in North America BY ADAM WILLIAMS Kamloops Daily News
aila Mussell’s goal hasn’t changed during her 14-year career. She wants to be respected and known as a bronc rider, not just as a woman who rides broncs. Mussell, who is from Chilliwack, is believed to be the only female bronc rider in North America, at either the amateur or professional level—but for her that has never been the focus. It isn’t an act. She isn’t risking bodily harm and travelling hundreds of miles every weekend solely to break down barriers for women in the sport of rodeo. Mussell is there to compete, and to win, just like everyone else. “I love riding broncs, and the sport and the people,” Mussell said recently after competing at rodeos in Valemount and Pritchard. “For some reason, this bronc riding thing I’ve held onto for the longest (of any sport). “I think primarily because I haven’t accomplished my goals yet and mastered it; I don’t think I ever will.” Mussell finished in the money, tied for second out of 11 riders in Valemount. Aside from stints in Texas and Alberta, Mussell has always called Chilliwack home. It’s where she learned to barrel race, which she was quite good at. It’s where she started steer riding at 12 years of age and it’s where she started trickriding, an act she took on the road to various stops in Western Canada and the Calgary Stampede. And it’s where she learned to ride broncs. Mussell, then 21, entered her first saddle bronc event in 2001. It hasn’t been easy as the first woman in a male-dominated part of rodeo, but she refused to back down when others claimed women don’t have a place in
Kaila Mussell riding saddle bronc at the Pritchard Rodeo. roughstock events like bareback riding, saddle bronc riding and bull riding. “She had quite a lot of ups and downs with people accepting a lady in bronc riding,” said her father, Jack. “It took quite a while to win the judges and people over.” Kaila describes her father as her mentor and someone who has supported her throughout her bronc-riding career. He walked away from the sport in 1972 when he married his wife, Cindy. Now 71, his words to his daughter as a child still resonate with her. “We were always raised that if you can do the job, if you’re capable, you can do it,” Kaila said. “I did the research, read the rule book (there was no rule prohibiting women riding in saddle bronc events) and went and did it.” She didn’t just do it; she did it well. In the early days, she had success in B.C. Rodeo Association amateur and semi-pro events. Just a year later, she entered her
first Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) event. That April afternoon in Prineville, Ore., she placed fourth in saddle bronc, becoming the first female competitor to finish in the money of a PRCA roughstock event. For some, that might have been enough, but Mussell has kept going. She went on to fill her professional card a year later in Florida by earning a minimum of $1,000 on the pro circuit, and continues to ride today. She’s still trying to achieve a sense of self-satisfaction, to have that feeling she knows she can walk away from saddle bronc with no regrets. “Once you know her, you know the battle isn’t with anyone but herself, she’s a perfectionist,” Jack said. “When I was a bronc rider, I didn’t do it to win the world. I didn’t do it to be someone to talk about. I did it for myself and my bud-
dies. “Kaila’s the same way.” Though she’s still competing while a month away from her 35th birthday, her perspective has changed over the years. She has toyed with quitting several times, tired of the steady stream of shoulder injuries and broken collarbones, saddles and stirrups that don’t fit for her like they do for the men, and exhausted by the immense pressure she puts on herself to win and bring home money each weekend. And then in 2011 Canadian country music legend Ian Tyson wrote a song about her, Saddle Bronc Girl, and Mussell said it helped her put everything in perspective. Her focus shifted towards having fun and enjoying riding like she used to. She doesn’t ride on the pro circuit much anymore—though she still has her pro card and could if she wanted to—as she focuses more on amateur and semi-pro rodeos in Western Canada, and she’s OK with that. She still has big dreams, but she’s more realistic than she once was. “I definitely would like to qualify for the CFR (Canadian Finals Rodeo),” Mussell said. “I had big dreams—I don’t know if it’s within reason now because I’m looking at the financial side of it—but I would love to be the first woman to qualify for the NFR (National Finals Rodeo).” Despite all the ups and downs, the injuries and the self-doubt, in some ways she has accomplished more than most riders do in their careers. And she’s still enjoying success—heading into the Valemount and Pritchard rodeos, she led the BCRA’s saddle bronc money winnings. When she does decide to walk away, it will be when she’s satisfied inside. Mussell hopes it’s still a few years off, but when she retires she’ll have plenty to look back on positively, and she’ll have left her mark on the rodeo world. “I’m absolutely proud of what she’s done, but it doesn’t matter what she’s done, I know she’s going to do well at it,” her father said. “She’s probably won more followers than she knows.”

The video was shot in part at her parents’ home and in the surrounding neighbourhood on the Skowkale reserve on Chilliwack River Road. Ironically, someone from leased residential properties next to the reserve called police during the video shoot to complain about the noise of the drums and officers were sent to investigate. “How ironic is that?” Inez told a Times reporter at the shoot. Inez kicks off her Burn Me Down tour with an appearance at the 2013 Aboriginal People’s Choice Awards, which will be broadcast live Aug. 21 on Aboriginal Peoples Television Network.

Led by Joe Keithley, Canada’s legendary punk kings D.O.A. make their only Canadian stop in Chilliwack on Aug. 24 at 9 p.m. at the District Public House at Five Corners before heading out on their U.S. Farewell Tour. To add synchronicity to the event, the CBC Radio-inspired D.O.Ale, brewed by Old Yale Brewing right here in Chilliwack, will be on tap at the District for the event. This will be the first time that beer meets band with D.O.Ale flowing from one of the 28 craft beer draught taps at District. D.O.A. are referred to as the “founders” of hardcore punk. Their second album Hardcore ’81 was thought by many to have been the first actual reference to the second wave of the American punk sound, known as hardcore. Chilliwack’s own Clarence will open for D.O.A. Visit the District’s Facebook page (or the pub itself) to get tickets.

PINBALL, from page 3
especially Sanders’s three solid-state machines from the 1960s—are something else. And they carr y that most valuable of currencies in the 2000s: nostalgia. In the 1960s, you could find Sanders and his brother banging away on a certain machine in Kay’s Café in Vedder Crossing. Forty-plus years later, his interest in pinball was renewed and he went on a hunt for that machine. He couldn’t remember the name, only the top-hat-attired figure on the title board. These days, that’s all you need. The Internet quickly eventually coughed up the name of the game—River Boat—and today a version sits in pristine condition in Sanders’s garage. Sanders also has several newer games among his collection of eight machines. He says his experience is hardly unique, with like-minded baby boomers following the same path.

another club based out of Vancouver. “The pinball community is a very closeknit community,” he says. “It’s crazy the friendships I’ve developed through my involvement with pinball . . . I’ve met some incredible people.” Those fellow aficionados, he says, includes a former NBA basketball player and a Microsoft executive with a predictably expansive collection. And lest you think it’s a predictably male pursuit, Sanders says the hobby—or obsession, if you like—boasts a substantial female contingent. Unfortunately, that contingent no longer includes Sanders’s wife, who lost her battle with cancer several years ago. But it might have, if life had complied. “She loved it. Ah, she loved it,” Sanders says, his voice wistful, but still enthusiastic. His collection was just growing as his wife’s cancer worsened. “Her and I, she would have just had a ball with all these machines,” he says. “She would have loved it.” ◗ For more information on the Flipper Freaks and the 2013 Fraser Valley Flipout, visit www.flipperfreaks.com.
