Mayor does slow burn over garbage decision Provincial gov’t approves plan BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

Local corn grower Ian Sparkes stands amidst his waist-high crop while a row of corn-vending barns sits idly in the yard behind. Normally Sparkes would be selling corn by now, but this year’s cold, wet spring has delayed his crop.

Corn-tastrophe in the field

orn may be to Chilliwack as houseboating is to the Shuswap or chainsaw carving is to Hope, but so far the only glimpse locals have had of their iconic crop is on the cover of the new phone book. Record low average temperatures in April and May have put the harvest weeks behind and also interfered with germination, which will mean lower yields. Some local corn growers are saying it’s the worst year they’ve ever seen.

Cold, wet weather has put the hurt on Chilliwack’s most famous crop

“We got it in on time, but it didn’t do anything after that. It’s too wet and cold. It just sat there and rotted,” said Ian Sparkes, who would normally be selling early corn out of his distinctive yellow and green Sparkes Corn Barns all over town by now. Sparkes planted 200 acres of sweet corn this year, but estimates

the yield on his first couple of fields will only be about 50 to 60 per cent despite extra labour tarping more fields to make up for the cold. “Our expenses are up,” he said. “It costs the same to grow a bad acre as it does a good acre, yet we’re going to get less off of it.” But more important than yield, for Sparkes, is timing.

Typically he would start picking his corn between July 8 and 14, and every summer day of selling is critical for his business. “Our sales are based on every day before Labour Day,” he said. “Those days that we haven’t been selling corn, we won’t get those back.” See CORN, Page 7

hilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz said she felt like she had been “kicked in the gut” after hearing the provincial government approved Metro Vancouver’s decision to build a waste incinerator either in or out of the region. Gaetz said the consultation process Metro underwent was done “merely to fulfill obligations” and that the 21 Fraser Valley regional directors were ignored. “I’m very frustrated, I’m very angry with [Environment] Minister [Terry] Lake’s decision,” Gaetz said in a conference call Monday. Lake said Monday that “approval to pursue waste-to-energy EB IRST should not be First reported on c o n s i d e r e d a chilliwacktimes.com licence to burn garbage” and any proposed facilities require several authorizations before they can be approved. “I’m confident this plan will reduce the amount of garbage generated in the region and provide strong environmental protection,” Lake said in a statement. Metro will be required to work with the FVRD to address air-quality concerns.

Busted for locker thefts A

41-year-old woman is in custody in connection with thefts from lockers at the Chilliwack Landing Leisure Centre. Three lockers in the women’s change room were broken into on Tuesday at the downtown leisure centre and several items were taken, according to Chilliwack RCMP. One woman reported her purse and car keys were stolen out of a locker. Another reported a purse with keys and jewelry were stolen, including the woman’s engagement ring from her deceased husband. The third report was from a woman who said her locker had been broken into and her iPhone and keys stolen. The victim of the first theft went home after the theft and noticed a man and a woman outside of her residence looking suspicious, according to Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth of the Chilliwack RCMP. The woman told police she saw

Celebrating better farming through research

Agassiz landmark for past 125 years BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

W

hen new settlers arrived in Canada in the late 1800s they needed to know what sort of plants and trees would grow. In 1886, one of five research farms in Canada was established in Agassiz to help find answers to those questions and to help establish and encourage agriculture in the Fraser Valley. On Saturday, staff and visitors of Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada’s Pacific Agri-Food Research Centre (PARC) in Agassiz celebrated the 125th anniversary with tours, exhibits and activities on the 310-hectare facility. Many of the visitors arriving at the centre were amazed by the size and variability of massive conifer and deciduous trees on the property. “They used to bring all the trees here to see if they would live,” research manager Sankaran KrishnaRaj told the Times. Some of the 100-plus-year-old trees on the site hearken back to that time, he said. Of course, not everything that was tried, worked. “Even citrus trees were brought in and some even survived the first winter,” KrishnaRaj said. PARC-Agassiz operates as a research farm looking into a wide range of areas, including: crop production systems, berry breeding, integrated pest management, poultry genet-

ic resources, animal welfare, and soil, water and air quality. “Over the last 125 years, Canadian agriculture has changed dramatically and so have our research activities,”KrishnaRaj said in a press release. “The centre is a unique mix of modern, state-of-the-art research facilities interspersed in 310 hectares of history. “We’re very proud of the work we do at the centre. It’s important to bring more agricultural awareness to the public, so we’re very pleased to host this special day and showcase what we’re doing for Canadians.” Historical notes: ◗ On June 2, 1886, the first five research farms were created under the Department of Agriculture when the Experimental Farm Station Act received Royal Assent ◗ All five research farms still exist today and are located in Agassiz, Indian Head (Sask.), Brandon (Man.), Ottawa (Ont.) and Nappan (N.S.) ◗ Some of the original farms have expanded to become full research centres, and new centres, farms and stations have opened across the country to support the diverse growing regions in Canada.

7 TIME WINNER!

LOCAL WINE MAKING FACILITY RACKS UP ANOTHER WIN! ivine Wines has once again been honored with the Chilliwack Times Best of Chilliwack award for best local wine making facility. This makes it three in a row with a total of 7 times over the past 12 years. On top of that the store owners, John and Nancy Pritchard have won numerous medals in international wine competitions for wines they made using the same products their customers use to make wine. John Pritchard commented that they won their latest award because of their customers’ support. Divine Wines had to earn that support by sourcing quality wine products, using modern winemaking methods and providing friendly, expert service. He also stated, “The quality of the product has improved so much over the past few years that our customers tell us the wines are comparable to $20 bottles of commercial wines, at a fraction of their cost. John remarked, “We love it when our customers tell us about their friends raving about the wine and can’t believe it was made at home or in our store.” As to how people can find out more about Divine Wines, co-owner Nancy Pritchard recommends they check out the web site at www.divinewines.ca and by going to the Contact Us page they can sign up for a newsletter to keep informed on what is happening in the world of wine. She further suggests, “They can also check us out by coming into our store in Vedder Crossing Plaza near Save on Foods.” When asked what makes Divine Wines special, Nancy stated, “We see wine-making as a fun, social activity; our customers deserve to enjoy the experience of making their own top-quality wines. The name is our identity and when it comes to our wines, Divine Wines says it all.”

News Keith Wilson Bridge closure The Keith Wilson Bridge will be closed for the month of August for maintenance repairs. The abutment rehabilitation work begins Aug. 2 and runs to Aug. 30, which requires full closure of the 13-year-old Vedder Canal crossing. The city had hired an engineering firm to examine ongoing cracking and settlement issue at the east and west abutments of the bridge, according to a staff report presented to city council at its last meeting. “Major cracks have appeared in the concrete bridge deck, the approach roadway asphalt and the concrete ballast wall,” the report said. Coquitlam Ridge Constructors Ltd. won the tender to do the work for the price of $234,364. The bridge is scheduled to re-open in time for the school year in September. Ditches and hoops Fish protection and flood protection often come into conflict and city staff are seeing this more than ever as plans are laid out for the annual ditch cleaning projects. “Unfortunately things have gotten a bit more complicated,” city assistant operations manager Neil Calver told city

Council briefs council at the July 19 meeting. “There are more hoops to go through than ever before.” In 2010, the city completed 32 kilometres of ditch cleaning as part of the annual open drainage and watercourse maintenance program. This year, an additional requirement by the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) is that the work planned in the fish-bearing waterways also triggers a screening process through the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA). “The city has complied with this additional screening process as part of the city’s ongoing commitment to effective and environmentally responsible drainage maintenance,” a staff report said. Despite the added regulatory requirements, this year the plan is to clean approximately 58 kilometres of watercourses for flood protection purposes. Sardis library Approximately 120 people attended a July 6 open house at Twin Rinks looking at plans for the southside library slated for construction in 2012.

At its last meeting, council heard from staff that there was generally positive feedback about the plans, but Mayor Sharon Gaetz said that she learned that you can’t please all the people all the time. “Some wanted more washrooms, some wanted less,” she said. “Some wanted a bigger library, some wanted a smaller library. But we do our best to please all the people all the time.” The city also applied to itself to rezone the land on Tyson Road from public use reserve to civic assembly. A public hearing has been called to consider the rezoning for Aug. 16 at 7 p.m. Olympian honoured Ryan Kuester was in attendance at the last meeting of council to be recognized for his two gold medals at the Special Olympics World Summer Games in Athens held earlier this year. “I just want to say how excited we are,” Mayor Sharon Gaetz told Kuester. “It’s not that often we get an Olympian and someone who has competed in Greece.” Kuester told council the experience was “amazing” and that while he was “shaking like a leaf” before the final, he was really happy with his result. - Compiled by Paul J.

Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz welcomes Jason Campbell back to the city after his long bike ride.

Long ride almost over BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

C

hilliwack’s Jason Campbell has just finished riding 150 kilometres a day since June 1 and he’s got the legs, the weight loss and the tan lines to prove it. Campbell, 37, is raising money in honour of his mother for the Canuck Place Children’s Hospice in Abbotsford with a bike ride from St. John’s, N.L. to Vancouver. His goal was to raise $10,000 before Aug. 22, which will be donated in the name of his mother, Paulette, who died of cancer in 2005. Campbell was at Chilliwack city hall Monday morning before taking off on the final of

52 legs of his cross-Canada journey. Mayor Sharon Gaetz presented Campbell with a pin from the city and a stainless steel water bottle. When asked what the hardest leg of the journey was, Campbell said the hills in Ontario. And what kept him going up those daunting and seemingly endless hills was the thought of little kids battling cancer. “If they could do it, I’m sure I can just keep pedalling,” he said. Campbell said he had raised about $5,000 so far. ◗ To donate, visit www.canuckplace.org, click on Precious Pages under the Make a Donation header, and search for Jason Campbell.

Speed, seatbelts, alcohol factors in Cultus crash

The exasperating thing for Sparkes is that the quality of his corn looks great. “It’s amazing corn, but this particular planting should have come Aug. 5, he said, nodding at a field of corn. “It’s going to come Aug. 25. We’ve only got 10 days after that before the kids go back to school and sales have pretty much dried up.” Between low yields and lost sales, Sparkes estimates his revenues from sweet corn sales will be down 30 to 50 per cent. Michael Allen, owner of Garden Back to Eden, Chilliwack’s only certified organic corn grower, has just one word for this year’s growing conditions. “Horrible,” he said. “It’s just been brutal. I mean, we should be selling corn by now.” As an organic grower, Allen isn’t worried about demand for his harvest after Labour Day, but yield will be an issue, he said. “We only grow small quantities of it because it’s all so labour intensive,” he said of his six acres of sweet corn. “We don’t have a problem with our market. Our problem is trying to supply the thing.”

A 20-year-old female passenger from Richmond was brought to Chilliwack General Hospital and released with minor injuries. “Speed, lack of seatbelt use and alcohol 20-year-old Vancouver man is on life support after a single-vehicle accident are believed to be causal factors,” according to the RCMP Fraser Valley Traffic near Spring Bay in Cultus Lake Services.

being transferred to Peach Arch Hospital, according to Chilliwack RCMP. As of Monday at noon he was listed in critical condition. Police arrested a 31-yearold Chilliwack woman at the scene. The woman had been living with the victim, according to Mounties. The woman remains in custody and faces a charge of attempted murder and was scheduled in court Monday afternoon. The Chilliwack RCMP Serious Crime Unit has assumed conduct of the investigation.

At the Chilliwack Corn Maze, meanwhile, anyone over six feet would have a tough time getting lost right now, but operators are confident the corn will be tall enough by opening day Aug. 19 “Normally our corn gets up to about 13 feet,” said John Bruinsma, one of the maze’s four operators. “It might be starting a little bit lower, but as long as it’s five to six feet high, I guess we’ll be able to get going.” Since the corn that makes up the 14-acre maze is field corn destined to be chopped into silage for dairy corns, a lower yield of cobs won’t affect Bruinsma’s business, but this year’s slow growth has been bad for the maze. “We’ve been doing it for 12 years and I’ve been around farming all my life,” he said, “and it’s getting up there as being one of the worst years that I’ve seen.”

A carbon credit charade

S

ome of you may recall a recurring scene in the brilliant HBO series, The Sopranos. Tony Soprano would be sitting at the bar in the Bada Bing club in a rather foul mood. The bartender—a big, tattooed, likable lug—would make an ill-timed comment and an enraged Tony would smack him upside the head with the telephone or beat him senseless with an ice bucket. Next day, he’d feel a bit guilty about what happened and give the battered and bandaged server a fistful of money for medical bills and a new shirt. In a word, this is the same as buying carbon credits. Those who feel a sense of shame regarding their carbon footprint are able to purchase credits through a system that supposedly uses the funds to reduce emissions elsewhere. This is the scheme that allows Al Gore to jet set around the globe and leave his fleet of limousines idling with the air conditioning on while he’s in a banquet room earning a king’s ransom for showing his truth-challenged, apocalyptic powerpoint show. At best, it’s a fruitless program that accomplishes nothing other than relieve one’s guilt. At worst, it’s a fraudulent scam. In any

JOHN MARTIN

Crime Matters event, there’s no evidence these outfits make one iota of difference to overall greenhouse gas emissions. Still, if an individual or private company wants to be involved in such a program, that’s their prerogative. But when cash strapped, public institutions are forced to devote scarce resources to these rackets, something has gone terribly wrong. This is the case in British Columbia. The provincial government’s climate change agenda literally forces hospitals, schools and other public operations to fork over big bucks to the Pacific Carbon Trust to supposedly function carbon neutral. You may have heard that the University of the Fraser Valley is busting at the seams and struggling to accommodate a record number of applicants. Funding has been static the last two years and more classrooms, office space and other facilities are desperately needed.

And while this has been going on, UFV was forced to fork over close to $90,000 last fiscal year to the Pacific Carbon Trust. To add insult to injury, this included almost ten grand in HST! It’s the same everywhere in the province. All told, public institutions had to find more than $18 million last year for this symbolic, feel-good exercise in futility. Time and time again we hear of deteriorating conditions and services in health care and schools. Public institutions are being forced to do more with less as their costs continue to climb. And yet, they have to come up with tens of thousands of dollars for a pointless government public relations charade. I can’t begin to imagine the frustration and sense of helplessness of administrators who had to divert funds from hospital beds and classrooms to appease this government’s obsession with worshipping at the alter of climate change hysteria. Personally, I think I’d rather be blind-sided by an ice bucket. ◗ John Martin is a criminologist at the University of the Fraser Valley. Email him at John.Martin@ufv.ca. This commentary is the author’s personal opinion and is not the opinion or policy of his employer.

n the days following the Vancouver riots, the sadness and disappointment felt by most British Columbians was a tangible thing—on radio call-in shows, in letters to the editor, and around the water cooler and the dinner table, most people were shocked by what had occurred. As the disbelief wore off, a wave of anger rode in to take its place and with it came an aggressive vigilante mindset that seemed to take root and grow. Within days, the “name and shame” websites were overflowing with digital images and videos taken that night. While some observers called for a calm and reasoned approach, others were a little less inclined be peaceful. The mantra became clear: The punks and creeps who had done this should pay for their actions—even if those consequences were meted out by an angry public and not by lawful routes. But this is not the Wild West. It’s never wise for the public—especially an angry public, partially protected by the anonymity of the Internet—to start making calls for retribution. Since then, thankfully, the fervour has died off, but the work of the police and the courts has only just begun. And though we wouldn’t wish for that over-the-top anger to come back, we also don’t want people to forget that there are, undoubtedly, many people who have yet to be identified. Last week, the Vancouver Police Department released updated numbers on how many alleged rioters have turned themselves in and how many more are being investigated. We have no doubt that there are people —parents, friends, co-workers—who recognized someone in a photo, or who have evidence yet to be handed over. Do the right thing: share what you know, and then let the police do their work.

Letters

Don’t tar all members with the same brush Editor: I would like to respond to the letter from R. Anderson published in the July 21 edition of the Chilliwack Times. I am a faithful reader, supporter, community member and business owner in Chilliwack. I took great offence to the letter as published. The writer has attacked every single RCMP member in the country who risk their lives daily to help people, save lives and make our communities better. The hours and hours of dedication they contribute to members of society cannot be understood by the average citizen. That being said, every member of the RCMP is human. We all know that humans make mistakes, accidents happen and horrible outcomes are had. (I too pray for the family and friends of the young man that passed away as well as the RCMP member and his family at this time). Please, R. Anderson, remember that it is 2011 not the the turn of the century. We are educated folks who know it doesn’t matter what job you choose, or profession you hire, there will be skilled people who are always terrific, bad people who are not and great people who make mistakes. Don’t condemn thousands of people by the action of a few. Do you refuse to go to all churches because some ministers have abused children? Do you keep your kids home from all schools because some teachers have done something bad? Do you avoid all lawyers because some have misused the law? The list goes on but I think you have my point. There is a lot more to the job then just carrying a gun. The whole facts and accounting of that fateful day are not all available to any of us yet. It is not up to us to judge, there are procedures in place to take care of that, regulations to be followed and in due course the results will be given. If you still feel that you should get rid of all RCMP members, I hope that in your greatest time of need those said RCMP members whom you don’t want around can find you and help you—whether you want them there or not. Thank you to all the dedicated emergency personnel that serve our community. Clara Hooper Chilliwack

Venting absolute frustration with a system so obviously broken, that it was one of then federal Liberal leader Michael Ignatieff’s campaign promises to reign in police misdeeds in B.C.

PST/GST? It’s Your Decision.” But remember, the report was issued before the government announced that the HST would be reduced to 10 per cent, and also before the promised rebates, which together make the impact really very palatable. I am convinced that overall the benefits of staying with the HST are more than worth the short term net cost of paying a little more for comparatively few goods and services.

tions and get jokes. We have been promised clean-ups and all we get are more headlines of misconduct. Something definitely needs doing. Is it a provincial police force? Power corrupts. The benefits would only last for a short period of time, I fear. I am full on for self defence (one of the few points I agree with the federal Conservatives on). Alas we live in a country whose culture is one of self-defence being viewed commonly as a criminal act in itself, no matter what and regardless if allowed under the Criminal Code. Remember the Duncan man whose name was dragged through the mud as a murderer when he defended himself in his trailer only to have proved beyond reasonable doubt in court it was self defense? How about the Alberta farmer catching thieves in the act stealing his ATV? How abut the now famous Toronto shop keeper? These aren’t extraordinary cases, these are typical ones.

Editor: I was very saddened to read the opinion of R. Anderson in the July 21 Times. Perhaps if R. Anderson knew the circumstances behind the fatal crash he would not be so critical of the RCMP as a whole and of the particular young RCMP officer involved in the crash. It sounds like R. Anderson is making this crash look like it was done on purpose. Of course, that could not be further from the truth. This officer was simply doing his job and something tragic occurred. It could be stated that 99 per cent of RCMP members, are of good character and actually care very much for people. The job,the men and women of the force, perform each day, 24/7 provide you the comfort and safety in your community.

Elvis Cafe outside Spuzzum last weekend I read Minister Mary McNeil’s letter to the Chilliwack Times on July 7. Minister McNeil writes that her government has a prosperity plan, an economic plan, job creation plan, taxation plan and poverty reduction plan. That all sounds great, but, what the government needs to meet all these objectives and the single biggest missing piece of support for families is a Child Care Plan. Luckily, there is such a plan available just waiting to be implemented—the Plan for a Public System of Integrated Early Care and Learning. This plan has been endorsed by the GVRD Board and many others. Working parents and kids across the province deserve just as much support in the early years as we give for the K-12 education system. Check it our at www.cccabc.bc.ca. Sharon Gregson, trustee Vancouver Board of Education

Editor: Although initially strongly negative on the HST, I have long since realized my feelings were really a reaction to Gordon Campbell’s assumption that he could get away with not explaining it in advance, so that it could be debated publicly before it was passed into law. That assumption cost him the premiership. Clearly, the HST, as originally presented, would have cost me more in taxes, but I eventually realized that it was in the best long-term interest of the province, in terms of jobs and the economy. Those long-term benefits to my children and grandchildren are what made me decide that I would vote to keep the HST. Now with the rebates and the phased in reduction in HST to 10 per cent, there will be little if any increase in net tax to most people. I have read the independent panel’s report on the HST. It spells out the pros and cons of both the HST and the previous PST/GST. It is very informative and not difficult reading. Want to read it? Google “HST or

Editor: In reply to Gord Currie’s letter, July 21, Times. It’s more than added taxes. It’s difficult to fix things that break in a democratic society once a pattern has been established, and there are always too many issues to be dealt with. I don’t disagree with your statement that taxes and environmental levies drive up the cost of companies that rely on those resources to stay in business. But, the cost is invariably passed on to the consumer, and the companies that suffer are those that are not vital to our everyday living. We will for instance, have to pay more for food trucked in from outside the local area, but we can do without that load of topsoil. The Canadian dollar is soaring, yet we have yet to see decreases in prices on anything and thousands of us flock to cross the border and spend our Canadian dollars that the Americans (for the most part) accept at par. Don’t even get me going on David Hahn or the tax dollars spent sorting out immigration issues that seem pretty elementary to me or a new and improved tax that should never have come to pass simply because it was fraudulently introduced? Oh, yes, and global warming. Air Care (still in place, when we were told it wouldn’t be by now) yet no significant improvement, at least that I’m aware of. Compact flourescent light bulbs that cost five times as much as incandescent, (but last much longer, provided you don’t turn them off all the time like we were trained to do growing up) and are an environmental hazard because of the mercury. I don’t have the energy to go into our recycling program . . . you get the point. Donna Pascoe Chilliwack

Fuel tax hike the height of stupidity Editor: Any politician that comes out in favour of new automotive fuel taxes should have their drivers licence

revoked and be required to use nothing but public transit. It just might give them a more realistic insight into the world most of us have to live in. Jack Carradice Chilliwack

The truth about energy not all true Editor: Re: Energy opinions not supported by facts, theTimes July 19. Bruce Sanderson and his private power lobby group “BC Citizens for Green Energy” (BCCGE) should be ashamed of themselves. They turn the truth on its head to justify the outrageously expensive private power projects that the Liberal government has forced BC Hydro to buy. Let me give a few examples of how this group misleads the public with its spinning of facts. Sanderson in his recent letter states: “Independent Power Producers have been operating in B.C. for several decades. They were supported and encouraged by the Socred government of the 1980s and the NDP government of the 1990s.” Well this is true but misleading. In the year 2001, when the Liberals came into power, IPP purchase were about two GWh per year (less than five per cent of supply). In 2010 this number is now almost 11 GWh (over 20 per cent of supply), an increase of over 500 per cent in less than 10 years. And many of the projects signed are not supplying electricity yet because they take a few years to construct. BC Citizen’s for Green Energy is very selective with their facts, which are carefully selected to point out the “benefits” of private power generation. The two main spokespersons, Bruce Sanderson and David Field, regularly say that BC Hydro’s costs have nothing to do with expensive private power but B.C. is spending money upgrading its aging infrastructure. While it is hard to deny that any infrastructure has to be upgraded, once again BCCGE is trying to divert our attention away from the huge costs of private power to BC Hydro. BC Hydro is hugely subsidizing the power industry by paying twice the going rate for its power than it could get if it was exported. According to its 2011 Annual Report, BC Hydro was forced to buy $568 million for power at $62 per MWh. Meanwhile the power BC Hydro bought on the market was less than half that, $29 per MWh and generated its own electricity for less than $15 per MW. However the Liberals and IPP industry try to spin it, we are facing increased electricity costs due to forced purchases of over-priced power by BC Hydro. Murray Martin Burnaby

The four volunteers were recognized by the City of Chilliwack with Heartfelt Volunteer Awards at the July 19 meeting of city council. “I want to say a huge thank you on behalf of council,” Gaetz said at the meeting. “Anything that can go wrong, these ladies are here to provide assistance and also direction to those who may not know where to turn. . . . They assist where you and I may be faint of heart.” Chilliwack RCMP also congratulated the women for their important work helping victims of crime. “O u r v i c t i m s e r v i c e s employees are an invaluable asset to the detachment, police members and the public,” Supt. Keith Robinson said. “They are predominately volunteers, who unselfishly provide victims of crime with support and comfort. They lead the victims through judicial proceedings that are, for most victims, daunting.”

T

he population of Agassiz is up by about one third this week as hundreds of girl guides from British Columbia, the rest of Canada and as far away as Ireland have set up camp for seven days. The Spirit of Rendezvous A d v e n t u re ( S OA R ) i s a weeklong provincial outdoor camp sponsored by the B.C. Council of Girl Guides of Canada for girls between the ages of 10 and 18. A total of 2,000 girls and leaders from Canada and other countries were arriving and setting up tents on Friday and Saturday at the Agassiz Fairgrounds to prepare for a week of fun, adventure and charitable works. Those in attendance come from across Canada as well as from England, Ireland, Mexico, New Zealand, the Philippines and the U.S. The sheer number of attendees make the site a village unto itself, complete

Paul J. Henderson/TIMES

Members of a troup from Surrey prepare for the week ahead at SOAR 2011, a gathering of 1,400 Girl Guides in Agassiz. with 80 port-a-johns, 750 camping tents, security, 24-hour, staffed health care centre and a large food distribution centre. The guides, pathfinders, rangers and leaders officially kicked off the week on Saturday evening with a parade attended by local mayors Lorne Fisher ( A g a s s i z ) , Ke n B e c o t t e (Harrison Hot Springs) and Sharon Gaetz (Chilliwack). Much of what the girls will be up to will involved fun and adventure—

geocaching, bike touring, crafts, fine arts, canoeing, waterslides—but there is also a service element to what the Girl Guides do. Some organizations the girls will team up with include: Fraser Valley Gleaners, Hats for Homeless, Chilliwack Community Services and the Agassiz Food Bank. Re s i d e n t s i n A g a s s i z , Harrison Hot Springs and Chilliwack will likely spot some girl guides some time this week.

BY THE NUMBERS This many hungry girls and leaders means a lot of food. ◗ 27 cases of hot chocolate ◗ 1,320 packages of cheese slices ◗ 1,500 pounds of tomatoes ◗ 2,340 eggs ◗ 2,500 fruit leather packages ◗ 4,500 granola bars ◗ 40,000 juice boxes

Starting pitcher Jordan Donegan picked up both the win and the game MVP in the quarterfinals against Whalley, the Vipers jumped out to a 12-0 lead early in the game and never looked back. The game was called in the fourth with the score 15-0 in favour of the Vipers. Chilliwack faced Richmond in the semifinal and cruised to a seven-run win. Chilliwack took on the Mariners again in the goldmedal game Sunday. The Vipers jumped out to a 5-0 lead in the first two innings, but Richmond closed the gap to 5-3 by the end of the sixth. At the top of the seventh, the Mariners cut off the Vipers with a perfect double play, but Chilliwack’s defence gave Richmond nothing in the final inning, and the Vipers took the game 5-3. “I am proud of the boys,” s a i d V i p e r s c o a c h Je f f Donegan. “Playing with two squirts who played every minute of every game and only three returning players and to defend the gold, was an amazing accomplishment.”

he Chilliwack Vipers captured silver at the Bantam A Boys Provincial Fastpitch Championships in Surrey July 15 to 17. The team marched through round robin play undefeated, beating Richmond 6-4 and Langford 5-4 Friday. After a seven-and-a-half-hour rain delay Saturday morning, they trounced Prince George 18-4 and Fleetwood 9-3 in back-to-back games in the afternoon. The Vipers faced Fleetwood again in the quarter finals and beat them handily 18-4 but went on to lose a close 4-3 decision to Richmond. The double-knockout tournament format gave Chilliwack another shot at making the gold medal game but they were nearly denied by resurgent Fleetwood squad. The Vipers found themselves down by two at the beginning of the seventh and rallied to tie up the game by the end of the inning. The teams then slugged it out for five more innings, and although the Vipers eventually came away with a win, they had little left in the tank for the gold medal game and went down to Richmond 10-1.

The Vipers came into the Peewee A Boys Provincial Championships with a 16-0 record in league play, but due to injuries defended their provincial title with only three returning players and two first-year squirt-aged players who were four years younger than most of the other players at the tournament. The Vipers took on the Cloverdale Hurricanes in their opening game Friday. Despite a slow start and giving up six runs in the first two innings, the middle of the Viper batting lineup came up with clutch hits from Adam Rucker, Josh Bartsch and Nolan James. Jordan Donegan got the win on the mound as Chilliwack came back to win 13-6 on the seven-run mercy rule in the fifth inning. Game two on Friday brought the Vipers face-toface with tournament favou-

Correction

In the July 19 edition of the Times in an article about the Optimist Fred Wellsby Junior Divot tournament final held at The Falls, it was stated that the winner of the tournament, Steven Scurr, who shot a 76 at the par-71 course, hit his tee shot “a little long” then got a lucky roll to within five feet of the cup.

Free English Practice Group for Immigrants

Family members of the young golfing phenom have informed the Times that his tee shot was not “errant” or a mistake, but was a planned shot by a golfer who knows the course well. The Times regrets the error and we wish the 15-year-old golfer the best in his goal of receiving a golf scholarship.

1085 Yager, Dean June 15, 1922 - June 23, 2011 June 23, 2011 - Yager, Dean, also known as Captain Allan Yager passed away peacefully in Chilliwack, BC. Survived by his daughters, Robbin and Steffany, his son in law Richard and his two granddaughters Andrea and Lee; predeceased by his wife Alisen and his son Von. Dean was born (1922) and lived in Pas Trail SA, where his father Albert Yager built the first general store. He then moved to Nipawin SA, joined the armed forces (1943) and served with the Royal Canadian Pay Corp for most of his enlisted life. He served with the United Nations Emergency Force in Egypt 1964 - 65. Dean and his wife retired to Chilliwack, BC where he was employed at Norman’s Photography, taught photography at the UFV, and took pictures of everything. He will be missed by the family and very good friends he left behind. May the light be perfect and the colour brilliant in all the pictures you are taking now. Cheers Dad, Grandpa, Father In Law, Friend.
