Upfront Briefly Thieves digging deep to steal Chilliwack taxpayers continue to bear the cost of vandals and wire thefts. The city is facing a bill of $26,558 after a banner month for wire thieves in June. Thieves stole $17,618 worth of public goods, mostly copper wire, during the month. That is added to bills of more than $4,000 for vandalism damage done to city infrastructure and park facilities. The thieves in one case were so persistent that they dug holes in a school field to find wire that could be stolen. As for graffiti, the city is hoping to make a dent. Mayor Sharon Gaetz says she hopes to see the amount of graffiti decrease after the city added a summer staffer to cover up the outlaw artwork as soon as it is detected.

Vedder bridge scene of yet another crash
nother weekend, another crash on the Highway 1 bridge over the Vedder Canal. At least 10 vehicles sustained damage in a multi-car chain reaction pileup over the bridge Sunday afternoon. Drivers sustained only minor injuries in the collision, but traffic was backed up for hours.
At least 10 vehicles involved in Sunday pileup
“It appears that in the flow of traffic one of the vehicles slowed down,” said RCMP Staff Sgt. Jim Simmill. “It was just a chain reaction,” he said, as several vehicles failed to come to a stop before plowing into the car or
truck in front of them. Simmill is reminding drivers to leave a cushion of at least three seconds between vehicles when travelling on the highway. F i f t y- f o u r- y e a r- o l d G re g o r y

It was a sad day for Fraser Valley Foods employees when the company decided to turn off the lights forever as they reorganized its Green Giant vegetable division.

Human chain saved his life Editor: Last night, Aug. 18, at around 6 p.m. some friends and I went to Pegleg Bar to lay into some sockeye. Seeing how crowded it was made me a little nervous, having never dealt with the “shoulder to shoulder” situation before (yes, I am a rookie when it comes to the Fraser). So, when a couple of my buds went out to the end of the channel to get a spot, it looked like a good idea. I was standing in just over-the-knees water, when my co-worker was swept out from in front of me. My first instinct (which I later learned was a rookie mistake) was to inch forward to try and reach for him, his rod, whatever. I knew I needed to help. As I did this the bank I was standing on washed out, sending me into the mighty Fraser, too. After frantically trying to swim back (second rookie mistake), I was pulled under. I managed to resurface, and a few seconds later saw a fishing net thown in, near my head. My brother-in-law, John Chester, and four to five strangers had linked arms, forming a human chain, and were able to pull me out of the water. I honestly felt like I only had another minute or two left in me before I wasn’t able to stay afloat any longer. I am writing this to send my deepest, and most heartfelt thanks to the strangers who saved my life. I likely would not be writing this if not for you. Steve Jackson Chilliwack

Pegleg salmon fishing has its danger BY TYLER OLSEN firstname.lastname@example.org
man who dragged a 63year-old fisherman to safety near Pegleg Bar last week says it’s only a matter of time before somebody dies on the Fraser. Adam Morley of Delta was fishing at Pegleg last Friday
Easy to get sucked into mighty Fraser River w h e n h i s w i f e ye l l e d t h a t somebody had been swept into the water. Morley, a strong fisherman, dove after the man and grabbed a hold of him. After drifting for what he estimated to be 300 to 500 feet, Morley was able to get himself and the man
to shore. Both he and the man were taken to hospital and later released. The incident was just one of several instances over the past week in which fishermen have been swept off their feet. Last Wednesday a human
chain of four men pulled a fisherman to safety. Morley, who has fished at Pegleg and on the Vedder River for years, was back at the bar on Saturday, when he says four See PEGLEG, Page 26

Funding no barrier for safety
GREENDALE SAMPLER FINGERLICKIN’ GOOD
Weekend accident shows it’s effective BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
ne year ago, a westbound car crossed the median of Highway 1 between the Yale and Lickman road interchanges and collided with a small SUV. Two people died in the collision and another woman was injured. On Thursday, local MLAs John Les and Barry Penner announced a new barrier that will hopefully prevent similar tragedies from happening in the future. A 4.2-kilometre-long cable barrier will be erected between Lickman and Young roads. The addition will cost $1 million, $550,000 of which will come from the provincial government. The rest is funded by the federal government. The project is scheduled to be finished Oct. 1. In a press release, Chilliwack MLA Barry Penner bragged about his, and John Les’s, work on the project: “Our government funded the first two phases of cable barrier protection on Highway 1 as a result of MLA John Les and I working directly with the transportation minister to have the life-saving technology installed.” There is already a six-kilometre-long cable barrier east of Young Road. On Saturday, that barrier showed worked as intended when a westbound vehicle left the road, flipped, but stayed in the median thanks to the cable barriers there. “A vehicle was struck by another vehicle, spun several times, rolled over but came up against the safety barrier,” said RCMP Staff Sgt. Jim Simmill. “That prevented him from going into the eastbound lane.” Simmill says it’s impossible to overstate the barrier’s importance. “Obviously, if you have vehicles travelling at a minimum of 100 kilometres an hour and, for whatever reason, lose control, go into the ditch and hit an opposing vehicle, your speed of impact is . . . catastrophic.”

Salmon study good news for fishermen
Surprising results show catch-andrelease not as hard on sockeye as once believed BY TYLER OLSEN firstname.lastname@example.org
study into caught-and-released sockeye salmon on the Fraser River may help back the claims of local sportsfishers who say they do little harm to fishery stocks. According to preliminary numbers, just three per cent of salmon that are caught, and then released, by bottombouncing fishermen have died within three days. The number is surprising, and good news for sportfishermen, according to Jim Thomas, the environmental consultant who is heading the study. He said that other fisheries have
shown mortality rates as high as 20 per cent. Thomas said bottom-bouncing a hook along the river bed turns out to be a relatively humane way to snag a salmon, particularly if one plans on releasing it back into the wild. Instead of ingesting a hook, fish caught with the bottom-bouncing method are usually snagged on the exterior of their head which, while probably unpleasant for the salmon, is far less deadly. “There is very little tissue damage, very little bleeding,” he said. The data come from salmon caught over the past two years by a half-dozen fishermen at Grassy Bar. After being hooked, the fish is reeled in, the hook is removed, and then Thomas and his associates assess the damage done to the fish, rate its “vigour,” and place a radio tag on it. The salmon are then placed in a holding pen, where they are held for three days to monitor their health. The 97 per cent that survive the first days after being caught are then released to continue their journey up the Fraser. Their long-term survival rates will be
monitored by the radio tags. To begin the study, Thomas had to convince sportfishers at Grassy Bar to move further up the shore, a prospect that didn’t excite him. But he says anglers have been extremely accommodating. “ I t ’s r e a l l y t o t h e i r b e n e f i t , ultimately,” said Thomas. The study will run for a couple more weeks, before wrapping up, at which point Thomas will compile all his data. For Ed George, region two president of the British Columbia Wildlife Federation, the early numbers are welcome. “It shows that when we’re fishing when endangered stocks are coming through, that we’re not killing huge numbers of fish,” he told the Times. “The bottom-bouncing method that a lot of people are using is a fairly fishfriendly method.” George hopes the study will allow sportsfishermen to show First Nations groups that they aren’t harming the local fishery. “They had serious concerns and questions,” he said.

Man who used bear spray in home invasion gets two years Homeowner suffered a heart attack after being sprayed twice BY TYLER OLSEN email@example.com
Chilliwack man has been sentenced to more than two years in jail for bear spraying a Wells Road homeowner during a botched home invasion this March. Ty Burgess was sentenced in Chilliwack provincial c o u r t We d n e s d a y a f t e r pleading guilty to charges of assault with a weapon, break and enter with intent to commit an offence, and the theft of a vehicle used in the home invasion getaway. On March 7, a 65-year-old homeowner returned to his Wells Road house to find Burgess in his basement.
Burgess bearsprayed the homeowner and fled toward his idling car. After following Burgess and trying to prevent him from leaving in his car, the homeowner was bearsprayed again. Burgess escaped, but the homeowner was able to jot down a description, and licence plate, of the vehicle, which turned out to be stolen. The homeowner suffered a heart attack because of the incident, but his help was crucial in helping police link Burgess to the crime. (Two days after the home invasion, Burgess was arrested in Coquitlam for another offence in Abbotsford.) On Wednesday, the homeowner was in court to testify at Burgess’s preliminary inquiry before the guilty plea was entered. Burgess was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in jail, minus 50 days for time ser ved. Because he was arrested in March, after new federal sentencing rules came into play, Burgess only received one-for-one credit for time served, instead of the old, two-for-one standard.
Dept. cheaply run FIREFIGHTERS, from page 1 The firefighters also say Chilliwack doesn’t measure up to guidelines set out by the National Fire Protection Association’s rule book, which calls for “an initial response in four minutes 90 per cent of the time and a full alarm response of 15 to 17 firefighters within eight minutes in urban areas.” And Corbett adds that when a firefighter is away or sick, Engine 4 is taken off duty and all four firefighters deployed to Engine 1, which is based in the fire department’s Hall 1. “If you look at other communities, closing down an engine just isn’t something that happens,” he said. Other Lower Mainland communities, though, don’t spend as little as Chilliwack does on its fire department. In April, fire chief Rick Ryall noted that his department was “by far the cheapest run department for a city our size.” Chilliwack residents pay,
on average, just $54.10 for the department. That compares to more than $100 in Abbotsford ($101), Nanaimo ($104) and Port Coquitlam ($117). Only Mission, with half the people, was in Chilliwack’s ballpark in the fire department’s comparative cost survey in its annual report. Corbett thinks the public should realize that you get what you pay for when it comes to fire services, and that current staff levels may delay life-saving rescue operations. “With the amount you pay comes a certain level of service,” he said. “If the public decides they don’t like that fact and they want us to arrive there in a timely manner and actually be able to perform a rescue, then they need to let mayor and council know that we need more guys. “All my family, all my extended family live in Chilliwack and I would love to see them better protected than they are now.”

Gov’t has it right on census
p until a few weeks ago I assumed I was enjoying a typical Canadian summer. Lots of barbecuing, camping by the water, and catching up on some leisure reading. But I understand now that I’m completely out of the loop. Apparently I’m supposed to be jumping up and down and waving my arms in hysteria and panic because the government is making some changes to the census. Oh the horror! Yup, making the long form questionnaire voluntary instead of mandatory is a constitutional crisis of epic proportions. It’s the next piece in Stephen Harper’s scary, hidden agenda. According to statisticians, lawyers, bureaucrats, academics and a host of other pointy-heads, a voluntary questionnaire is unreliable and totally useless. We will be utterly clueless and have no hard data with which to plan policy, infrastructure, resource allocation or anything else. It’s surely the end of civilization. It’s interesting that every single Fortune 500 company uses voluntary questionnaires, surveys and interviews as the central methodology in their market research. Clearly the data they work with is completely unreliable and useless. Surveys, questionnaires and interviews, all voluntary by the way, are also the dominant data collecting tools in psychology, sociology and several other academic disciplines. Obviously we should burn every thesis, dissertation, research
Crime Matters report, textbook and scholarly publication that used a voluntary survey because these automatically render the information collected unreliable and useless. Every polling company and market research consultant should close their doors in shame because they’re nothing but a bunch of fraudulent tricksters who charge big bucks for unreliable and useless information collected by way of voluntary questionnaires and telephone interviews. I say, “lock ‘em up.” Speaking of “locking ‘em up”—this is at the very heart of the governments decision to move to a voluntary questionnaire. As it stands, refusing to divulge personal information is a criminal offence punishable by incarceration. The federal government correctly notes there is something fundamentally wrong about threatening people with jail for choosing not to share private information. But according to the groups and organizations whose collective bowels are in an uproar over plans to scrap the mandatory questionnaire, we should keep the law as it is because it’s never enforced
anyway. Hmmm, I wonder how a similar argument would have gone over when the government of the day was preparing to decriminalize homosexuality. After all, no one was going to jail for being in a same sex relationship. Whether a bad and unjust law is being enforced or not is irrelevant. But apparently foes of the government’s announced plans on the census, including all three opposition parties, the Canadian Bar Association and the Canadian Association of University Teachers, are adamant we maintain the status quo. “Ironic” isn’t quite the word I’m looking for. But there must be a word that aptly sums up a scenario where opposition politicians, lawyers and academics are insisting it is appropriate that the threat of jail be used to coerce citizens into filling out a questionnaire that demands personal and private information. Yet at the same time, these are the most vocal opponents of proposed legislation that would incarcerate repeat, violent offenders. Still—I’m not about to let this fuss over nothing distract me from my summer. Besides, if liberals, socialists, separatists, lawyers and teachers are all against something, you just know it’s got to be the right move. ◗ John Martin is a criminologist at the University of the FraserValley and can be contacted at John.Martin@ufv.ca.
he Komagata Maru incident of 1914, in which 387 Indian immigrants aboard a Japanese steamship were turned away from Vancouver and forced to return to India based on racist immigration law, is a blemish on Canadian history. In 2008 Prime Minister Stephen Harper stood up at the Gadhri Babian Da Mela festival in Surrey and apologized for the incident. But, apologies aside, how much have our attitudes towards migrants really changed? When a ship carrying hundreds of Tamil refugees from Sri Lanka hove into view of Canadian waters this week, Ottawa was quick to paint those aboard with a broad brush. Before a single Canadian had actually climbed aboard the Sun Sea, Public Safety Minister Vic Toews called the passengers “suspected human smugglers and terrorists.” No one on board has yet been linked to any war crime during Sri Lanka’s long and terrible civil war; simply being Tamil doesn’t make someone a Tamil Tiger. What’s more, Tamil groups in Canada contend that at least some of the passengers have legitimate refugee claims. Let us not forget that when the Komagata Maru returned to India, 19 of the passengers were shot by police and killed. If Tamil refugees are returned to Sri Lanka, it’s possible they will also face retribution from the government in Colombo, especially now that they have been branded as terrorists. The Conservative government would be wise to remember its own apology for the Komagata Maru incident. These Tamil migrants deserve a fair hearing, and rushing to judge them doesn’t help to protect Canadian shores. While we don’t agree with opening our doors to whomever has the means to float through our porous waterfront borders, let’s not lay the groundwork for tomorrow’s apology.

and you should be grateful there are people like that, especially physicians. The doctor you met has more respect for you than you have for yourself. She thinks you are not a mere animal who cannot control itself. A married couple can, when necessary, abstain during the woman’s fertile time and avoid pregnancy just as effectively, and often more effectively, as any artificial birth control without any of the negative side effects and without any offense to natural law. The doctor also has more respect for human life than you as there is abundant evidence to show oral contraceptives can cause very early term abortions. Birth control is shameful, not something to which one is entitled, and it is abhorrent to ask others to be complicit in a couple’s use of it and complain when they don’t comply.

Beware about lending vehicle Editor: An elder had lent her car to her daughter (with a valid driver’s licence) and over 10 years experience. She would use the vehicle once a week to go to basketball games. On Oct. 31, 2009 on her way to a game near Lillooet a deer jumped out onto the road. The daughter swerved, hit the gravel and went down the embankment approximately 50 feet (as per RCMP) and the car flipped. The vehicle was a write-off. An ICBC adjuster had interogated this elder as if she was commiting a crime by allowing her daughter to drive the car. The claim was denied. This lady of the First
Nations has a Grade 3 education. She was told that she breached her insurance. Why? ICBC stated that she put it in her name for cheaper insuance. This elder is a law-abiding citizen and now feels that she has broken the law and is devastated. So people please be aware, don’t lend your vehicle out to anyone, because ICBC may state that you yourself has put the insurance in your name for cheaper use. The elder is the registered owner and principal driver of the fully insured vehicle. Georgina Morrissey Chilliwack

I know when a team is down people tend not to support them as much as when they are on top but that is when a team needs the support. Despite a lopsided score it was still a good game to watch. The Huskers have some good players and it won’t take too many changes or improvements to make them a contender as well. Get behind them, they deserve your pride. A couple of stunt pilots put on an amazing aerial display during the game that was simply outstanding, the concession people were very friendly and the hamburgers great.

Sad reflection on society Editor: Recently at a local theatre two large hanging signs depicting scenes from a current action movie were stolen. It happened during a late evening show around 10 p.m. The signs were hanging cardboard pictures of two cops in action stances holding guns, etc. When the staff were busy in another room apparently two guys came out of one of the cinemas, ripped the signs down and dashed out the back door into a waiting car and disappeared. The whole thing took only seconds and although a few staff members ran after them, their heist was too carefully planned and executed and staff weren’t even able to see the perpetrators or their vehicle although they heard it screech off into the night. They were left shaking their heads, amazed that here in our small town such blatant crime could happen so openly. Well, it wasn’t a major crime. It was only a couple of cardboard movie signs. But when I heard about it, I couldn’t help thinking that in our modern society we glorify crime, guns, killing, violence, sex, drugs and general chaos in the movies, televison, computer games, etc. In the theatres I’m often amazed at how many of the new movies coming out contain guns and violence. Even comedies often contain guns. I’m sure the guys who stole those signs were laughing themelves silly as they sped off from the scene of their crime. They obviously have learned their trade well. I wonder if this training and experience will serve them well in later life? What a sad and disturbed society we have become. Robert Anstey Chilliwack

Editor: While visiting relatives in Chilliwack, I read Melissa Anderson’s lamentation about a doctor who would not prescribe her birth control. First off, I highly commend the doctor Ms. Anderson met and all doctors and pharmacists who do not dispense birth control. I only wish there were more people in the medical professions with such courage and conviction. Secondly, to Ms. Anderson, I am surprised at your audacity to accuse the doctor of selfishness and criticize her for not submitting to your every request. What you did was selfish. You may think it is appropriate to act in ways that are inconsistent with your morals, but people of integrity do not do that. Honourable people have their lives, even their work lives, influenced by their beliefs

Editor: Re: Transit Activist, Times, Aug. 20. I read with utter disbelief in the Aug. 20 edition that councillor Diane Janzen, chairperson of the Transit Advisory Committee, has never actually ridden a bus in Chilliwack. Are you kidding me? Isn’t that just like a doctor prescribing treatment to a patient they’ve never actually seen. If that isn’t bad enough, city staff tell transit activist Jennifer Bigham, after it takes her over three hours to travel just six kilometres on the bus, that her ideas are “old news” and that changes would be too expensive. So instead of making changes we will continue to fund a system that is totally inadequate and ineffective. (This is clearly in evidence everytime you see a nearly empty bus go by.) None of this really surprises me at this point. Council talks about downtown revitalization then builds the Evans Road bypass and permits a new Walmart, Home Depot, and theatre to open on that road. Is there any doubt this will set back downtown revitalization at least a decade? I think this and past city councils have no real plan for the city of Chilliwack. Lyle Simpson Chilliwack

Okanagan lays beat down on winless Huskers
BY TYLER OLSEN firstname.lastname@example.org
lready missing their starting quarterback, the Chilliwack Huskers fell behind early and never recovered as they fell 50-0 to the Okanagan Sun Saturday at Exibition Stadium. With starting QB Clayton Kroeker nursing an injured shoulder, Cory Prince took the reigns for his first junior football start. It got off to a rocky beginning, however, as the Huskers’ very first snap was fumbled deep in their own zone. The Sun recovered and punched the ball into the end zone on the next play to start a rough first quarter for Chilliwack. Within minutes, they had put another 10 points on the board courtesy of a Matt Scheurwater catch and a 51-yard wind-assisted kick by the

Sun’s Steven Schott. An interception return for a touchdown rounded out the Sun’s first-quarter scoring and essentially sealed the Huskers’ fifth straight loss after just 15 minutes. In a game short of bright spots, Chilliwack’s defence can be credited for twice stopping the Okanagan offence on third-and-short. “We knew we had a tough opponent coming in,” said Huskers head coach Luke Acheson. “In terms of experience and confidence, I think we were a little bit outmatched.” The Sun entered the game with a 3-1 record and Chilliwack knew they weren’t going to be able to shutout the high-powered Sun offence. But Acheson acknowledged that the ear-

Back to School
Are your children ready for full-day K? BY CORNELIA NAYLOR email@example.com Is my five-year-old ready for kindergarten? With full-day K only two weeks away in 14 Chilliwack schools, that question has more anxiety-inducing potential than ever. But for those local parents who have been frantically Googling tips on how to get their youngsters socially, emotionally and academically ready for the classroom, school district veterans have some reassuring words. “The kids are usually more ready than I think we give them credit for,” said Nadine Clattenburg, principal at Watson elementary and co-ordinator of the district’s eight StrongStart programs. “It’s usually the parents who feel the kids aren’t ready.” While provincial guidelines for getting fullday K up and running require the 500-plus local kindergarteners in the new programs to be in all-day sessions by Sept. 15, schools will be easing them into the schedule throughout the first week. Plans vary from school to school, but most will kick off the year with a kindergarten open house on the first day followed by a few days when students come in for only a couple of hours. “They idea is to break them in a little bit gradually,” said Wendy Lawson, a 19-year veteran kindergarten teacher at Little Mountain
elementary. When classes aren’t in session in the first week, kindergarten teachers will meet with parents one on one. Most have set up the meetings at schools, but some diehards, like Lawson, still stand by home visits. “When I go into a home, the child sees that their parent welcomed me into their home, that I’m not a scary person, that they don’t need to be afraid of me,” she said. “It’s important to me.” Before leaving, Lawson always reads her new students Spot Goes to School, and she says reading similar first-day-of-school stories can help parents get five-year-olds talking about their school anxieties. Lawson has a few other kindergarten-specific back-to-school tips as well. Most kids starting out won’t need much in terms of supplies, since teachers tend to provide all the crayons, paints and paper they’ll need for a small fee. Indoor shoes, however, are a must, and Lawson implores parents to buy Velcro or slip-on shoes—not lace ups. “They come with these tie shoes all the time, and they can’t do them,” she said with a laugh. “That’s why I’m going to retire soon because my back is fried.” Kids also need a sturdy backpack, and Lawson says regular-sized is best.
“I know it seems big on all of them,” she said, “but they love to take these huge books out of the library and they don’t fit in those teeny tiny ones that everyone thinks are really great.”
◗ For parents who still have to register their kids for kindergarten, schools are open for registration the last week before Labour Day. For more information, visit www.sd33.bc.ca.

Children who experience playing a musical instrument achieve remarkably higher academic performance.
Find out how music can help your child achieve more!
On behalf of the Chilliwack Board of Education, I would like to welcome everyone back for the 2010-11 school year. We are beginning this year with a balanced budget that allows all staff to focus solely on their work in serving the community’s students in their learning journey. Thanks to the hard work done by our school community last spring, the system should have stability for the coming years. As we focus on the goals of our Strategic Plan we will strive to increase graduation rates and to better prepare all students for opportunities after graduation. This fall services will be expanded to include full day Kindergarten for over 500 students. In addition to diverse and engaging programs at our neighbourhood schools, schools of choice and middle school hockey academy, we will be launching two new secondary academies for baseball and hockey. Through on-line learning at Fraser Valley Distance Education, the Continuing Education program at the Education Center, and the Apprenticeship program, we provide every student and adult with a variety of ways to access ongoing learning. Thank you for your continued support as partners in education. Best wishes for a successful year!

(For the rare bathroom accident, Lawson suggests equipping backpacks with a spare set of clothes.) One new challenge for new full-day kindergarten students will be snacks and lunches. Befuddled five-year-olds will be stumped when they look into their lunch box at recess time, according to Lawson, who has witnessed the phenomenon with new Grade 1 students. “They will take their sandwich at recess time, not be able to finish it, throw it out and then at lunch there’s not going to be anything,” said Lawson, who suggests labelling food or getting separate containers. For the next two weeks, the veteran teacher suggests getting five-year-olds to bed earlier and up in time for breakfast. And when the first day finally arrives and the time comes for little Johnny and Jenny to spend their first hour at school by themselves, Lawson suggests snipping the apron strings as matter-of-factly as possible. “It’s really not that long,” she says. “I find that the children who are clinging, the minute I can get the parents gone, they may sit and be sad for five minutes or so, but then they want to do what everybody else is doing.”

Pays to be a smart consumer
t’s that time again. Students and their parents are preparing for the beginning of a new school year. With the high volume of sales made during this time of year and an increasing number of youth making their own purchases, Consumer Protection BC and Better Business Bureau (BBB) remind “back-to-schoolers” that it pays to be a smart consumer. Consider these tips while doing your shopping: 1. Ask about returns and refunds. Shopping for new clothes, accessories and gadgets is one of the highlights of going back to school. When you buy your new gear, ask the store about their return policy and always keep your receipts. Most people don’t know that in B.C., stores are not legally required to exchange an item or give you a refund. 2. Read the fine print when getting a credit card. Credit cards can be very useful and we get offers for new cards all the time. Don’t get yourself in a financial jam by signing up right away for a new card. Find out what the new card gives you and definitely make sure you know what the interest rates is, how long any introductory interest rates apply for, and when interest begins. 3. Find out the details about your new cell phone plan. You don’t want to sign up for something that you didn’t want. Ask about the time commitment, billing details, replacement costs and how you can get out of the contract if you need to. If you are considering data use for things like social networking sites, e-mail, texting or web-browsing on your device, the charges associated with data are often higher than those of calling plans. Get a copy of the contract and make sure you read all the terms and conditions. 4. Do your research before buying a new computer. Before you get that new computer,
decide what your needs will be and what the computer is to be used for, such as word processing, video-calling, graphic/web design or gaming. This will determine the type of hardware and software that will be required and how much you will pay in the end. Shop around for a good price and find out what you have to do (and pay!) if your computer breaks down. Consider leasing to reduce the costs of upgrading your system but make sure you know the details of your contract. 5. Know what to expect with gift cards. It’s true that most gift cards can’t have fees or expiry dates anymore. However if you are buying a mall card for that teen in your life so they can shop on their own, you should know that these cards are allowed to have fees. Make sure you find out the details so that you can make an informed decision. (Note that the law doesn’t apply to pre-loaded credit cards.) 6. Ask yourself if you really need that free gift. Carefully consider offers of free gifts that come with a purchase. Do you need the item you are buying? If not, then this free gift may not be worth the investment in the end. 7. Know the true cost of what you are purchasing. You might be moving out for the first time and buying new furniture. If you are buying an item on credit, make sure you are aware of not only the interest rate being charged, but any additional fees and costs associated with purchasing on credit. Also read the fine print on your obligations regarding interest payments and any penalties for late payments. Consumers have rights and responsibilities under B.C. law, find out what yours are by visiting the Consumer Protection BC website at www.consumerprotectionbc.ca or by contacting your local BBB (www.mbc.bbb.org). The key to being a smart consumer is to know what questions to ask and reading the fine print.
Back to School Welcome to a new year of learning! On September 7th, 2010 the doors will open to 13,000 students and over 1,700 staff, in 32 schools, and we will begin the 2010-11 school year. We are excited to welcome new staff and students and are looking forward to seeing the great progress on our new school buildings. Thanks to the hard work of our finance, human resource, custodial, maintenance, transportation, print shop and technology staff over the summer, we are ready to go for another school year. Students, parents and staff will spend the year learning in classrooms, on-line, at home and in the community. Our K-12 mandate has expanded to include Strong Starts for preschool children, full day Kindergarten and Adult learning. Collaboration to support literacy and learning is one of the cornerstones of our community and together we are committed to ensuring that every student is a graduate who will be prepared to contribute meaningfully to the community. We look forward to another exciting year working with our students and our many community partners.

Red Overhead Flashing Warning Lights min. 10 metres). This means the school bus Stop when approaching a school bus from either direction (m is stopped to either load or unload students. Wait until the red lights stop flashing and the driver indicates it is safe to proceed or until the bus moves off. Watch for students crossing the road. Amber Overhead Flashing Warning Lights Slow down and proceed with caution and be prepared to stop as the bus will be stopping to either load or unload students.
Railroad Crossings The Motor Vehicle Act states that school buses carrying students must stop at all uncontrolled railway crossings, but Chilliwack School District has extended its policy to include stops at ALL railway crossings. ! Buses will display 4-way flashing amber lights to indicate the bus is stopping or stopped. ! Extra caution is required on the part of the motorists while the bus is stopped or stopping. Passing is permitted. Curb Stops on 3 and 4 Lane Roads It is almost impossible to stop 3 or 4 lanes of traffic with Red Overhead Flashing Warning Lights. For student safety, the school district employs Curb Stops similar to the City Transit Bus Service. Whenever possible, the bus proceeds through the intersection, students disembark, then cross the street at the nearest pedestrian crosswalk behind the bus. ! The school bus will display the 4 Way Amber Flashing Lights, the same as at railway crossings. ! Extra caution is required by motorists to watch for students crossing the road at the nearest pedestrian crosswalk. Passing is permitted, but please use extreme caution.

Back to School
Going back to school, safely
BY DR. DAVID BUTLER-JONES Chief Public Health Officer of Canada
he end of summer means that it’s time for children to head back to school. Whether they travel on foot, by bicycle, by bus or by car, it’s important to teach your child how to get to school safely. Below are some actions you and your child can take to prevent injuries when travelling to and from school.
Biking to school Before your child bikes to school, make sure the bicycle has working brakes, a seat secured at the right height and is equipped with a bell, light and a reflector. Make sure your child always wears a bike helmet that is level on his/her head, not tilted back or sideways. The strap should be snug to protect the head in case of a fall. Hats should not be worn under a helmet. A properly fitting helmet rests two finger-widths from the eyebrow, has v-shape straps around both ears, and allows space for one finger to fit between chin and strap. Teach your child to obey the rules of the road. Like people who drive cars, cyclists must ride in the same direction as the road traffic, ride single-file, stop at red lights and stop signs and yield to pedestrians. Always walk bikes across intersections or railway crossings. Hand signals will tell other traffic if your child is planning to turn or stop and will help your child understand what cars and other cyclists will be doing. Before school starts, map out the safest route to school with the least traffic. Children young than 10 should not ride their bikes on the road. Whenever you can, use bike lanes or paths, and make sure your child follows the buddy system: always ride with at least one friend and tell someone— yourself or another adult —where they are going and what route they will use. Riding the school bus There are important
actions your child must take to avoid injury when riding the school bus. When the school bus is approaching the bus stop, your child must take five steps back from the road. It is important for you to remind your child to stay away from the three danger zones—the front, sides and back of the bus—by staying at least three metres (10 feet) away from the school bus. Teach your child that he should never run after the school bus to try to catch it if he/she misses his ride. Once inside the school bus, your child should take a seat as quickly as possible, put his/her belongings under the seat, and stay calm. Remind your child to wait until the school bus comes to a complete stop before getting off. When getting off the school bus, he/she should use the handrail. If your child must cross the street, he/she should always cross in front of the school bus but only after establishing eye contact with the school bus driver. If your child drops something near or under the school bus, he/she should always get the driver’s permission before picking it up. Driving to school The back seat is the safest place for your child to be. Your child should ride in a booster seat until they are 36 kg (80 pounds), at about eight years old. At this point, he/she has grown enough to properly use a seatbelt. Explain how and why he/ she must wear her seatbelt. The strap that runs across the lap should sit over your child’s hips. The shoulder strap should go over the shoulder and chest, never under his/her arm, which could cause a broken rib, and never behind the back, which could hurt his/her spine in the event of a col-
Putting kids through college (NC)—Paying for post-secondary education can mean sleepless nights for parents, especially when multiple children are attending college or university at the same time. A report by TD Economics showed that in 2009, the cost of a four-year undergraduate degree was more than $80,000 for students living away from home. Even for parents who have diligently saved for their children’s education, it can be very tough to save enough for more than one child. Lawrence Engel, vice-president, personal lending, TD Canada Trust has these tips for parents: ◗ Investigate financing options – The advisors at your bank can review your savings and discuss some of the options available, such as a student line of credit. Student lines of credit work like a personal line of credit, but often with lower interest rates, interest-only payments for your children while they are students, and flexible repayment terms. In
addition, banks such as TD Canada Trust offer higher lines of credit for students entered in professional and graduate programs, which have lower interest rates but offer the same benefits such as payment grace periods and low monthly payments. ◗ Other sources of funding – Your children may be offered funding with their offer of admission. Each university has its own policy, but generally any funding your children are offered will be a mix of internal sources such as teaching and research assistantships, as well as external sources like government grants. ◗ Live within your means – Remind your children of the old saying, if you live like a lawyer when you’re a law student, you’ll have to live like a law student when you’re a lawyer. While they may not be studying to be lawyers, it’s important that they be realistic about their living expenses.

Does your child require bus service? Beginning September 2010 all riders must pay to ride a school bus to and from school for regularly scheduled classes. If you are new to the district or have not made arrangements for bus service, please contact the Transportation Department at 604.792.1255 or check our website for online information. 08248864

Walking to school Walking to school is a great way to ensure children keep active, but there are important steps to take to make sure your child stays safe. Teach your child to keep a safe distance from cars —walk on the sidewalk, or if there is none, stay as far on the shoulder of the road as possible. Make sure your child knows to walk in the direction facing the traffic, so he/she can see the cars approaching and drivers can see him/her. Driveways need special attention as drivers may not see children walking by. Teach your child that when the white lights on the back of a car or truck are lit up, it means that the car is moving backwards, and he/she should keep clear. Crossing the road alone is a big step for children; only children aged nine or older should be allowed to cross busy intersections alone. Demonstrate how to look both ways before crossing: show your child to turn his/ her head left, right and then left again to look for traffic before stepping out onto the road. Remind your child that a car can’t stop as fast as he/she can; if your child sees a car coming, tell him/ her not to cross until the car has stopped or has passed.
Tell your child to cross at an intersection with a traffic light whenever possible, and make sure he/she knows how to use the crosswalk signal to let drivers know that he/she wants to cross.
