Booze may be to blame in bike accident Collision with car claims the life of Agassiz motorcyclist BY TYLER OLSEN


however, BCTF locals left it up to teachers’ discretion. “It caused a huge schmazzle for us with our fall sports,” said Sue Keenan, the executive director of B.C. School Sports. At the time, the organization had 455 member schools, both public and private.

olice say alcohol may be to blame for a crash Sunday that killed a 71-year-old Agassiz motorcyclist in Harrison Hot Springs. Mounties say the man was killed after his motorcycle collided with a car being driven the opposite direction on Hot Springs Road at around 4:12 p.m. Sunday afternoon. RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks said alcohol “is considered a factor” on the part of the car’s 62-year-old driver, who was EB IRST taken to hospital but later First reported on released. Harrison resident Lloyd Blazs arrived at the scene soon after the crash and said two people tried in vain to resuscitate the struck motorist.

Will sports strike out? BY CORNELIA NAYLOR


ith school back in session and with teachercoaches around the Chilliwack school district gearing up for the fall athletics season, some are worried about how the current teacher job action and ongoing negotiations between the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association will affect their teams. The union has told them they can coach at their discretion and

School athletic directors and coaches fear the worst if teacher job action should escalate

that extra-curricular athletics will not be affected by the first phase of the job action. But for those who were around five years ago, the last teacher strike still casts a pall. Veteran Chilliwack secondary school field hockey coach Barb Kroeker said she is going about business as usual, planning tournaments and trips and booking practice times and games, but she is

concerned about what will happen if the union ramps up its strike. “I absolutely am worried that it will change and that it will be a mess again,” she said. Five years ago teachers walked off the job to protest a government imposed extension of their contract, and teacher-coaches in Chilliwack were ordered not to coach. In some other school districts,

Dike breach modelling performed by a consultant for the city showed that a breach near the Keith Wilson Bridge during one-in-200-year water levels would see much of Greendale covered within 26 hours.

Worst-case scenario City now knows what flooding from breached dikes could look like . . . and how to respond



pring is when the slow-building freshet threatens Chilliwack with Fraser River flooding, but it’s autumn when a oneoff rain event can cause flooding on the Chilliwack/Vedder River system. Chilliwack River Valley residents know this all too well after the Nov. 6, 2006 flood event that saw evacuation of homes and a state of local emergency declared by the Fraser Valley Regional District. After that event, the Provincial Emergency Program (PEP) provided $1.5 million to upgrade the dike near Wilson Road off Chilliwack Lake Road. The city hired a consultant to model various dike breach scenarios. The City of Chilliwack’s diking system protects the municipality from theVedder Bridge all the way to Highway 1 and the Fraser River. The study, which was presented to city council at its last meeting, outlined what the probable extent of flooding might be, what water depths are expected and at what rate would flood waters travel. The city has also created the Vedder River Flood Response Plan, which outlines what city staff would do in the event of a flood. Responses range from dike patrols to issuing evacuation orders. The plan will be presented at public meetings in Yarrow and Greendale on Sept. 13 and 15. In the modelling study prepared by SchlumbergerWater Services, two different-sized flood events at five different locations were analyzed. One based on the 1975 flood, called a one-in-

six-year return, saw 790 cubic metres of water per second flowing past at the Vedder Bridge. This water level has occurred twice since 2003, but the dikes protected the floodplain. The second was for a one-in-200-year flood, which is the basis for the city’s dike design along the Vedder River. This scenario would see 1,470 cubic metres of water per second at Vedder Crossing. To compare, the surge of water in November 2006 that led to flooding of the Chilliwack River upstream from the Vedder Bridge was 1,040 cubic metres per second. At the Sept. 6 meeting of city council, Tara Friesen, assistant manager of environmental services, outlined two of the dike breach scenarios: one on the south side of the river near Wilson Road in Yarrow and the other on the north side of the river just south of the Keith Wilson Bridge. In the latter scenario, Keith Wilson Road would be topped within an hour and water would reach as far as Blackburn Road. In four hours, the water will have inundated much of eastern Greendale and will have reached the highway. After 18 hours, Highway 1 will be topped and the water will have reached Sumas Prairie Road. The Sept. 13 meeting is from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Greendale firehall. On Sept. 15 from 7 to 9 p.m. there is a meeting at the Yarrow Community Hall. At the meetings there will be a presentation followed by a question-and-answer period and emergency preparedness handouts. ◗ More information on the city’s response plan for flooding on the Vedder River is available at

News Body of missing man found

Photo by Lloyd Blazs

A motorcyclist was killed Sunday after a head-on collision with another car on Hot Springs Road in Harrison Hot Springs.

Deadly year for accidents ACCIDENT, from page 1 The year has been a deadly one for motorcyclists in the Lower Mainland, with the most recent death being the eighth fatality of motorcycle and ATV riders in the region. Blazs, who rides a motorcycle himself, says the behaviour of local motorists is frequently terrifying. “I moved out here four months ago and I’m

regretting it,” he told the Times. “In downtown Vancouver, with all the cars whizzing by, I feel safe. Out here, I’m scared ----less. “They’re speeding, tailgating, dangerous driving, passing on double-solid yellow lines,” he added. “I’m a veteran rider and I’m scared here. “It seems to be a pile of undisciplined drivers who, when they get out on the road, it’s ‘Me, me, me, and the hell with everybody else.’”

Two fishermen have found the body of a Surrey man who went missing from a Harrison Mills campground during the Labour Day long weekend. The body of Christopher Hannaford was discovered Friday afternoon a short distance from where police believe the 28-year-old man entered the water nearly a week earlier. Hannaford was last seen by friends the night of Sept. 3 at the Old Orchard Campground near Harrison Mills. The campground is near the Harrison River and in the days after Hannaford’s disappearance, a search was conducted in the air, in the water, and on the ground. The spot where the body was found was accessible only by boat, according to Mounties. Hannaford’s brother came from Newfoundland to help police positively identify the body. A cause of death will not be released until after a coroner’s examination. “Although this is a very sad ending to a long and involved search, Chris’s family now has the closure they need to move on,” said RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck.

Police briefs

Police hunt for bank robber Mounties are investigating a bank robbery that took place last week. A lone man entered the TD Canada Trust on Vedder Road at about 8:40 p.m. and produced a note demanding money. The man left with an undisclosed amount of cash. No weapon was produced and police believed he acted alone. The suspect is white, about six feet tall and weighs about 180 pounds. He had dark brown hair and dark stubble on his face. He wore a grey plaid baseball cap, a white Tshirt with a grey symbol on it and dark pants. Police say a champagnecoloured Ford F150 in the bank parking lot may be linked to the suspect. The truck had damage to both its front end and its bumper area. “This crime took place on a bright, sunny morning in a busy area of town,” said RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck. “We are hoping that someone saw

Pair charged in food hold-ups A man and a female accomplice are being investigated in connection with string of fast-food robberies, including one in Chilliwack. “The man, of no fixed address, has been charged with three counts each of robbery and disguise with intent in relation to robberies at two Subways and a Liquor Store, in the Surrey/Langley area,” said Cpl. Holly Marks, with the Langley RCMP. The woman, also 26 and believed to be the man’s girlfriend, has been charged with two counts of robbery in relation to the robbery of a Subway in Surrey and a Langley liquor store robbery. He appears in court Sept. 12 while her next court date is Sept. 15. The authorities are investigating 16 crimes at fast-food outlets and businesses between May and September. Police are recommending four more charges of robbery and disguise with intent, for offences in Port Moody, Langley and Chilliwack. ◗ Compiled by staff

Appeals court overturns ruling against Lindell Beach resort operator BY TYLER OLSEN


he B.C. Court of Appeal has overturned a 2010 ruling against a Lindell Beach resort operator and ordered a new trial after finding that the trial judge was wrong to find that the operators abused the judicial process by defending themselves a second time. Last year Justice Brian Joyce ruled that Lindell Beach Holiday Resort must repay George and Rita Petrelli the amount they paid for the trailer in 2007. The Petrellis had argued that they were not informed that the resort had been zoned by the regional district as a campground and that the trailer would contravene district bylaws. For his decision, Joyce relied heavily on a similar Supreme Court decision from 2009 between the same resort and another couple, Gwena and Mark Bahry. In basing his decision on that decision, Joyce said he was not convinced that there were any significant differences from last year’s case. And he took the defendants to task, writing that “There is, in my respectful view, an element of oppression in the defendant’s position of seeking to raise, once again, the same issue on which it was unsuccessful in another action involving another party who entered into a contract for the purchase and sale of a Holiday


Home for placement on its property.” But the three Court of Appeal justices unanimously disagreed. They said that the argument at the centre of the Petrelli case— whether the trailers constituted a “legal non-conforming use”—was not broached in the earlier trial. “If the issue of legal non-conforming use had been before the court in Bahry, it is arguable that relitigating it in the current case would amount to an abuse of the court’s processes,” wrote Justice Harvey Groberman. “In the case before us, the trial court was not being asked to re-consider an issue that had previously been litigated, nor was it being asked to make primary findings of fact that were incompatible with previous findings. Further, the plaintiffs can point to no aspect of the proposed defence that could be said to be abusive of the process. The defendant has not, for instance, reaped an advantage in the earlier litigation by refraining from raising the non-conforming use issue. “In my view, the chambers judge erred in finding that the defendant’s attempt to raise the defence of legal non-conforming use was an abuse of the court’s process. I would allow the appeal and set aside the order of the chambers judge. The matter should be remitted to the Supreme Court for a new trial.”

◗ Opinion

No. 33’s new reign of silence


s our great, big, noisy ferris wheel of a public education system slowly gains speed for another year, the Chilliwack school district has decided to tighten up its communications strategy. At a policy meeting about two weeks ago, the powers that be decided, starting now, only one man will speak for the district: superintendent Michael Audet. It’s not a move most people besides us media types would much notice, but up till now, Chilliwack newspapers or radio stations could call up pretty much anyone in the district and get information or a quote on happenings at local schools and the school board office. Not any more. I first ran into the new reign of silence while I was looking for information about the district’s decision to waive bus fees for aboriginal students this year. Districts don’t make these decisions willy-nilly, so I wanted to find out more; alas, the one person allowed to talk to me was in meetings all day. Thing is, Mr. Audet is a busy man. He’s also the first to admit he doesn’t know everything. When you put those two things together in your lone spokesperson, what you get is less information getting out to the public and less transparency. When I asked the superintendent about the move, he said the school district’s executive team


Hard Core told him they’d be more comfortable if there was one spokesperson for the district. I get that. There’s a reason there’s been such an uproar about full-body scans at the airport. Transparency can be unnerving. But when the public institution you work for runs on more than $100 million in taxpayer money a year and is entrusted with educating this community’s next generation of citizens, it may be necessary for the public good. And then there is school board chair Doug McKay’s take on situation. For him, funnelling information through a single spokesperson lends the school district credibility by making the district’s message consistent. If that means restricting information or editing out dissenting opinions, so be it. “Our job is not to make your job easier,” he told me recently. “Our job is to do our job.” One alternative to assigning media duties to a busy superintendent, would be to set money aside for a communications officer.

When the district found itself working alongside the RCMP in a criminal case not that long ago, Audet said the lack of such an officer raised eyebrows with the police who rely heavily on their designated media spokespeople to control the information that gets out to the public. It’s true. When it comes to controlling information and divergent opinions, the Chilliwack school district has been a bit of a sieve compared to other institutions. And there’s no question it’s been harder for district executives, but I’ve always thought it served the public good for those who actually know what’s going on in the district to explain and give an account rather than for them to rely on a communications officer to pass all the information on second hand. Former superintendent Corrine McCabe once told me school district executives are educators, not politicians, and many don’t having training or experience dealing with the media. Fair enough. But instead of hiring a media gatekeeper with no background in education to make their jobs easier, as districts like Abbotsford have done, I say get those educators some media training, so they can give a real account of their policy and curriculum decisions to the public when the need arises. It is the public, after all, whose taxes keep this big wheel spinning.

o the guy who gave us the HST— sneaking it by us with lies, deceit, and general subversion of the democratic process, no less—is to be honoured as one of the greatest among us. Gordon Campbell is being awarded the Order of British Columbia. Now, if that ain’t a kick in the teeth. “The Order of British Columbia recognizes the excellence and achievements of our citizens,” Lieutenant-Governor Steven Point explained as he announced that 14 recipients, including Campbell, would be receiving the award in October. “It is the highest honour we can bestow on individuals in our province.” Apparently, it is a significantly higher honour than being drummed out of the premier’s office with a remarkable nine per cent approval rating. And it’s probably a stronger legacy for our ex-premier than having been responsible for the launch of the only successful public initiative referendum in the province’s history—to dump the most universally despised tax in the province’s history. It’s a feat that could not have been accomplished without the anger that Campbell generated through the deceitful means by which he foisted the HST on the British Columbians who now find themselves “honouring” this “visionary, leader, proud British Columbian” with their highest accolade. While there is much in Campbell’s resume that could make him worthy of consideration for the Order of British Columbia, it’s hardly fair to the other people on the list of honorees to present it to him while his popularity remains in an abyss, while we’re all in the midst of correcting what probably was the biggest mistake of his public career. It’s not fair to Campbell himself, either. The timing ensures that his inclusion in the order will forever be linked to his HST fiasco, instead of with some of what should be his more memorable accomplishments.

that it is the municipalities responsibility to advise the Minister of Health of the dangers associated with wireless smart meters. Chilliwack has still not made a decision about it. It would seem that our mayor and council members don’t want to take their responsibility to protect the health of the Chilliwack population and environment. Instead, they relay this responsibility to the city clerk who obviously has no knowledge of a municipality’s role in protecting its population. Delegates from B.C. Hydro will be in attendance at the regular meeting of city council on Sept. 20 at 3 p.m. to provide details on their smart meter initiative. The council will make a decision based on B.C. Hydro’s side of the story only. Apparently they are pushing away the opposition. By the way, our mayor is an executive member of UBCM. For those municipalities that are waiting for the UBCM judgements . . . don’t put too much hope in it because they won’t bite the hand that feeds them. Ray Belanger Chilliwack

Creating jobs elsewhere Editor: There are many myths out there. One of them is that large corporations, when given a tax-break or billions of dollars in bailout money, will automatically create new jobs. Looking at the HST debate one could get the impression that before the tax was introduced, our economy was on the brink of collapse. And now, with the old system of GST/PST coming back, job losses are inevitable. Understanding, however, that large corporations naturally only expand their business (i.e. create jobs) when there is an increased demand for their products or services, we can easily see that things don’t quite add up. And what do large corporations really do with our hard-earned tax-dollars handed out by our government, aside from paying millions in bonuses to executives of course? Here is one example: In the ’80s one of the largest appliance producers in Germany asked for a major bail-out while putting pressure on the government with the

prospect of having to pay unemployment benefits to 20,000 workers if the government didn’t help save the appliance manufacturer. Close to a billion dollars was given to the company. Years later, after the European common market expanded to eastern European countries, the same company cut production in Germany by 70 per cent while setting up shop in Bulgaria. Unlike Germany, in Bulgaria there were no unions protecting the workers, and labour cost was much less. Could it be that large companies are only looking at how and where the greatest profit can be generated? South of the border our U.S. neighbours are struggling with more than 14 million people unemployed. One reason is that large American companies such as Walmart do not really care about creating jobs for Americans and who manufactures the products they sell. In fact, when we read the “Made In” label on almost all of their products, we see that Walmart is working hard on making China the new economic superpower while Americans are jobless. Mario C.

he Labour Day long weekend was a bittersweet end to the summer. We have watched as the carefree days of celebrating graduation and “no more homework” come to an end, packing and goodbyes soaked up the last days of August, and our kids get ready to head off to university. Some will travel, some will move across town, some will commute from home . . . it’s all a new journey we are beginning. Recently we drove several hours to help our daughter get settled in her rented room and get ready to start her university studies. In the afternoon the university hosted a parents’ conference, and I looked around at the faces of other moms who were about to leave their 18-year investment in someone else’s hands and drive home to an empty bedroom where their son or

daughter’s belongings used to create its own unique atmosphere. I spoke with some other parents from places like Alberta and Ontario, and one mom whose kids grew up in Malaysia and Singapore. I wondered if there were other Chilliwack moms there that day. While that afternoon was a collection of moms gathered from many places, as we drove back to Chilliwack I was thinking about a different collection of moms—the ones whose kids are going all over Canada or further, but we are left behind in Chilliwack. Half of your mind and most of your heart is waiting to hear about their progress with settling in; what their classes are like, what friends they discover and what kind of adventure they are off to. Tonight I sit and listen to the sounds of neighbourhood children

sing-songing out the numbers as they play hide-n-seek across the street. “Yesterday” that was my daughter. “Today” she is in a strange city that is waiting for her to explore it, settling into a room that will become her new home as she pursues her dreams. Maybe this is your first child to leave home, and you’re wondering what will happen from here. Or maybe like me, this is your fourth and you’re discovering that letting your kids go doesn’t really get any easier with practice. Maybe we should wear a ribbon, or make T-shirts, or wave a flag . . . we might find a way to identify each other in a grocery check-out or walking along the river. If you know another university mom, give her a hug next time you see her. Stefanie’s mom Chilliwack

@ChilliwackTimesNews all you need to know in 140 characters!

Did you know that one of the most common problem veterinarians deal with is an ear infection in dogs? Every week I diagnose at least one case of “Otitis Externa” (aka- ear infection). Chronic ear infections also cause great frustration for my clients. So, this week I will give some tips to prevent ear infections and more specifically, ways to treat recurring ear infections.

What causes ear infections? It might surprise you to know that almost all ear infections are caused by normal bacteria and yeast that live in every dog’s ear. These bacteria are part of the normal “flora”. The problem starts when they grow out of control and overwhelm the dog’s defense mechanisms which usually keep them in check. What causes the natural “flora” to grow out of control? 1.Moisture- if your dog’s ears are getting wet from swimming or bathing 2.Foreign bodies- because dogs have large ear canals, they are susceptible to getting grass, pieces of wood and other items caught down their ear canals. 3.Excessive ear wax or debris -many dogs get a buildup of hair, wax and “gunk” that allows bugs to proliferate. 4.Conformation- ears that are floppy (like golden retrievers) become warm and moist and do not air out properly. Certain breeds (like Cocker Spaniels) have very narrow, misshapen ear canals . 5.Medical problems- Cushing’s disease, hypothyroidism and diabetes are 3 examples of diseases that make it difficult for a dogs immune systems to fight off infection. 6.Allergies- Dogs that have food or environmental allergies are unable to fend off bacteria and yeast. I spend a lot of time convincing owners that their dog’s ear problems are from food allergies. As high as 25% of persistent, reoccurring ear infections are from reactions to food. Performing a hypoallergenic dietary trial on a specially formulated prescription diet often resolves the ear infections. If it is not a food allergy, a simple round of medication is often all that is needed; but in cases of reoccurrence, a more rational approach is used. The message I tell all my clients is, consider the underlying causes (those outlined above) when dealing with recurring ear infections. Too many times owners pour medication down their dog’s ear canal for years and years and in the end wind up with irreversible damage. This approach also propagates multiresistant super bugs along the way. Here are a few TIPS to help prevent ear infections: • Clean your dog’s ears regularly with a specially formulated ear cleaner. It is best not to be cleaning the ears daily since that would cause the ear canal pH to change dramatically and possibly cause your dog’s ears to get ulcers from the irritation. • Inspect your dog’s ears regularly with your eyes and nose. If the ear smells foul and looks red and inflamed seek veterinary care immediately. • Have your groomer or veterinarian pluck out the hair if their ears are constantly getting infected. This will help the ears be able to air out. When it comes to treating ear infections in dogs, get to the root of the problem. Don’t just reach for the bottle of medication. Dealing with underlying issues will be cheaper in the long run and improve the quality of life for your family pet.

Editor: The B.C. Hydro smart meter program is a one billion dollar project that was excluded from the B.C. Utilities Commission’s scrutiny. Fourteen municipalities to date have issued requests for a moratorium on wireless smart meters under the Public Health Act. Other municipalities are waiting for the UBCM to make a decision on that matter. All of the 14 municipalities so far requesting a moratorium don’t have anyone on the UBCM executive. B.C. Hydro has been a major financial contributor to UBCM. Alerted citizens of Chilliwack contacted “Citizens for Safe Technology Society” to ask them to make a presentation about the possible risks of B.C. Hydro’s Smart Meters to our mayor and councils. Those concerns were listed in my previous comment “Let’s be smarter than lab rats” on Aug.2 in the Chilliwack Times. Curiously the offer was rejected by the city clerk, Karla Graham, when she wrote: “I would advise that your request to appear before Council as a delegation is denied, as the matter of wireless technology falls under the jurisdiction of senior levels of government and not local government. We would therefore suggest that you forward your concerns requesting a moratorium directly to Health Canada, who manage health hazards dealing with electromagnetic fields, and Industry Canada with respect to regulating and licensing radio frequency spectrums.” The Public Health Act (Bill 23-2008 of the BC Public Health Act, section 83 (1)) specifically states

h e C h i l l i w a c k C h i e f s’ goaltender situation is a little clearer after head coach and general manager Harvey Smyl’s axe fell over the weekend. After a pair of preseason games against the Surrey Eagles, Smyl whittled his roster to 25 players, i n c l u d i n g 1 6 f o r w a rd s, s e v e n defencemen and two netminders. Quesnel Millionaire returnee Bryton Udy will tend the crease for the Chiefs this season alongside new recruit Mitch Gillam. Udy,18,wastheMillionaires’starting netminder last year.

2008. He played hockey last year for Berkshire School, a prep school in Massachusetts. The Chiefs lost to the Eagles by identical 4-2 scores Friday night in Surrey and Saturday in Chilliwack. Gillam, 18, played half of each game, but didn’t surrender a single goal. “He seems to be really composed in there,” said Smyl. “He makes things look easy, is technically sound, moves well, has good feet and is pretty athletic.” His play caused Smyl to cut Adam Harris, who played 18 games for the Millionaires last year. With seven players remaining, the Chiefs’ defensive unit would seem mostly set. As a whole, Smyl called them “big” and “mobile.”

The aim is now to assemble the defenders into pairs and try and turn a collection of building blocks into a solid, unified back line. While Smyl said the team has struggled defensively in the preseason, he noted, “That doesn’t come from the ability, that’s going to come from our team’s structure.” Up front, there is still uncertainty, with five-plus lines of forwards. “Right now we still have lots of decisions,” noted Smyl. “There will be players coming and going and we’ll be picking and choosing whether we need to add or delete.” While returnees Malcolm Gould and Spencer Grabovski look to form the core of the group, Smyl has also added a couple intriguing pieces—or, rather, potential pieces—in recent weeks.

Kit Sitterly, a 20-year-old who until last week was skating in the Langley Rivermen’s camp, has moved down the road to rejoin his old coach, Smyl. Last year Sitterly scored 11 goals in 42 games for the then-Chiefs. David Bondra, a 19-year-old American with hockey in his blood, is also skating with the Chiefs, although he must go through a transfer approval process before suiting up for a game. Bondra scored four goals in 58 games last year for the woeful Chicago Steel of the United States Hockey League. He is the the son of Peter Bondra, who scored more than 500 goals in the National Hockey League. While Smyl was impressed with his players’ effort against Surrey, he said the Chiefs need to play better as a team.

Huskers get Sunburned BY TYLER OLSEN


he Chilliwack Huskers are still looking for their first regular season win of the year after being outshone by the Okanagan Sun’s running game Sunday. Without defensive-line stalwart Cody Hillhouse, the Huskers had no answer for the Sun’s backs and fell 42-7. Arman Bokitch ran 13 times for 104 yards to lead the way for the Sun’s rushers, who amassed 313 yards and three touchdowns along the ground. The Sun—who pushed their record to 51 with the victory and who haven’t lost to a team other than the Vancouver Island Raiders in more than a year—led 24-0 at the half. Tanner Hamade recovered a fumble for the Huskers and ran it back 47 yards for a touchdown early in the third quarter, but it was the only time Chilliwack would put points on the board. Huskers quarterback David Hollinshead, making his first start behind centre, com-

Okanagan Sun 42 Chilliwack Huskers 7 pleted 12 of 19 throws and put up 161 yards. In doing so, he actually outperformed his Okanagan Sun counterpart, who only threw for 131 yards. After missing several weeks due to an injury, Ben Skerrett returned for Chilliwack and caught two passes for a total of 59 yards to lead the way among Husker receivers. James Williams recorded his first British Columbia Football Conference sack and made four tackles to help lead the Huskers’ defence-by-committee. But the two teams’ ground games, or lackthereof, made the difference. The Huskers could only manage a paltry five total yards on 15 carries. The Sun, meanwhile had five different runners who put up more yards. ◗ The Huskers host the Langley Rams Saturday at 7 p.m. at Exhibition Stadium.

Strong start for Strikers

hilliwack FC’s U-16 girls Silver Strikers opened their season Sunday with a 1-0 home win against the Semiahmoo Stingrays. The locals took charge of the game from the start and dominated both ball possession and field position. The girls turned in a strong game and outshot their opponents 14-5. The Strikers speed was too much for the visitors as Chilliwack’s forwards Emily Finley, Makayla Pfeifer, and Emma Haagensen broke in free but could not finish on

their opportunitites. Forward, Haley Mainse finally, who was set up beautifully from passes from Kristy Ricard and Breanna Zeswick, broke the deadlock 15 minutes in to the opening frame. Mainse split the defence and smacked the ball into the lower corner of the net. Strong midfield and defensive play by the Strikers in the second half continued to create chances. They could not find the back of the net but still came away with a one-nil victory.

embers of Chilli w a c k ’s C h e a m Va u l t e r s t e a m brought home major awards last week as guests at the Alberta/Prairie Provinces Championships. Alisa Schmidt, with lunger Colin Schmidt and her Percheron mare Rosie, took top honours in the event, earning the highest scores overall for the four classes that each vaulter performs. Schmidt, also coaches Cheam’s Radiance canter team, Canada’s first team that competes at the national level. In team vaulting, six vaulters work together with their horse and lunger to complete a compulsory round and a four minute freestyle routine. Although the Radiance team—featuring Darla Ricka, Ali McKitrick, Jessica Church, Cassie Sponchia, Abigale Wynberg and Alisa Schmidt—did not have any competition at the event, they achieved a personal best score for their first competition away from home territory. The members rode Tanner, and were lunged by Josh Anema. In other individual vaulting classes, Abigale Wynberg placed first in round two and second overall at the Division C canter level. In Division B canter, Ali McKitrick placed fourth overall with a second in her second round freestyle. Liam Stucliffe, in his very first competitive class, earned third place overall in Division D walk. Raven Schmidt also took home a third place ribbon for her performance in Division A canter. Three other Chilliwack vaulters, Bailey

Participants were provided with a passport in which they document their walks. Once completed, the passport was entered in to a prize draw. The winners for the 5th Annual Chilliwack Walks program are: Laurie Etherington – a three-month individual membership at the Chilliwack Family YMCA; Heidi Blom – a three-month individual membership at the Chilliwack Family YMCA; Paul Stephany – a three-month family membership at the Chilliwack Family YMCA; Christina Rodrigues – a three-month individual membership valid at either

our Chilliwack athletes are back in the Fraser Valley after posting solid results in the JKA World Cup Championships in Pattiya, Thailand, in August. Jacob Maud, Zach Charleton, Amanda Keriliuk and their Sensei, Don Sharp, competed with 13 other Canadians alongside 800 of the best practitioners of karate in the world. The Canadian team came back with a composite ranking of fourth place, the best showing ever for Canada. Typically, Canada falls in the middle of the pack, placing around 24th or 25th. Individually the juniors excelled. Maud, 13, faced tough battles in his Kumite (fighting) matches. While he was possibly the smallest competitor, what he lacked in stature, he made up for in spirit. He fought his way to the top eight after eliminating opponents from India and New Zealand. In the third match he fell to a boy from Thailand that the team fondly named “the Thailand Tank.” Maud’s kata (form) also showed well, but he was eliminated by a Russian and did not place. Charleton, also 13, showed some character and strength through his matches. In the first event (kata) he was

The Japanese always do very well at karate championships as they live, learn and breathe karate. Despite facing the Japanese champion, Charleton earned a moral victory by managing to pull out one flag, meaning one of four judges on the floor felt he was deserving of the win. His Kumite matches also showed spirit and courage. He won his first match against a New Zealander but lost his next match against a boy from India twice his size. While he was eliminated, Charleton earned himself a top 16 spot in the world.

Keriliuk, 15, was the only female junior to represent her country. In the first event, she preformed one of the finest katas her sensei had ever seen her perform. But she too was eliminated by a Japanese girl who went on to win the gold in this event. Kerliuk, though, shoneinherKumite.Shedefeated tough competitors from the United States andVenezuela to earn a top-eight finish. “It was extremely exciting,” she said. “I couldn’t have asked for a better atmosphere there. To see so many of my teammates do well, cheering them along from the sidelines, was great.” Sensei Don Sharp, mean-

while, had to retire from the competition early after suffering a severe concussion from a kick to the head in his second team Kumite match, an event consisting of five men from one country fighting against five men from another country with one-on-one sparring. Canada won the first match. In the second match Sharp was in control and had his English opponent down by a point. But with less than 20 seconds left in the match, he received a kick to the head and sustained a severe concussion. While he won the fight with his one point and the consequent disqualification of his opponent for excessive force, the injury forced Sharp to retire from the rest of the tournament, including the individual events. Sharp’s Canadian team continued on to earn a bronze medal in team Kumite. Sharp, meanwhile, has recovered from the concussion and is back at his dojo, Valley Shidokan Karate. SenseiSharpandthejunior’s coach, Sensei Sal Sharp, said they were extremely proud of their juniors and that they exceeded all expectations. The Sharps said they would have been happy with one top-16 placing, but instead each of the athletes placed top-16 or better.

Newest 4-H Club had busy summer with projects BY JESSICA MEIR Special to the Times


ushing Rivers Community 4-H Club is a multi-project club in the middle of our first year. We are the newest club in the Chilliwack District. We started off the year with seven members and four different projects being done. Sarah, Morgan, Matthew, and Stephanie all have a dog project. Jacinta has a rabbit

project, Jada has a cavy (Guinea pig) project, and Jessica has a photography project. We started the year with speeches in February. For senior competitors, Morgan placed first and Jessica came in second. For junior competitors, Matthew placed first, Jacinta came second, and Stephanie came third. The top two from senior and junior went on to compete at district level. Next came our club demos. For

juniors, Matthew and Jacinta came first with a demo on green air fresheners. For seniors Sarah and Stephanie placed first with a demo on baking Snickerdoodles and Morgan and Jessica placed second with a demo on using recycled materials to make candle holders. All three demos moved on to compete at district level. Morgan and Jessica placed second, moving on to compete at Fraser Valley regional demos.

In May, Chilliwack district held judging. This is where we judge a class of four of something and place them, giving our reasons for our placings. Morgan went to compete at South Coastal judging weekend in July. Next came the Chilliwack Fair, where five of our members showed or displayed and competed with their projects. Morgan and Matthew showed their dog projects. Morgan won champion senior
