Miller found unfit to stand trial



Ryder Lake man who killed his wife is unfit to stand trial, a Supreme Court justice ruled last Thursday. David Miller stabbed his wife, Susan Miller, to death on Boxing Day of 2009. He was due to stand trial later this month on murder charges, but Thursday’s ruling will see the 53year-old man confined to a secure hospital, likely for the rest of his life. Miller suffers from Huntington’s disease, an irreversible disorder that

Stabbed his wife to death on Boxing Day 2009

causes both the body and mind to degenerate. Caused by a defective gene, the disorder has no cure and is always fatal. So while he may never be tried in a court, Justice Brian Joyce noted that Miller has already been handed the harshest possible sentence. “It appears that Mr. Miller’s disease has imposed a life sentence on him and he will likely spend the remainder of his life in a forensic hospital.” Miller’s lawyer, Paul McMurray,

had conceded that his client killed his wife. Miller had been confined to hospital prior to the stabbing, but had been given day passes for both Christmas Day and Boxing Day to visit his family. A trial would have revolved around whether Miller could have formed the intent necessary for a murder conviction, and whether he was provided proper access to counsel following his arrest. Miller had been deemed fit to

stand trial last fall. But his condition deteriorated over the winter and in March, McMurray asked for his client to undergo a “neuropsychological test” to determine his fitness for the upcoming trial. The court heard Thursday that the test showed Miller could not understand the legal process, could not understand any potential sentence, and could not communicate with counsel in order to participate in his defence.

McMurray said Miller suffers from delusions and has stated that he neither has nor needs a lawyer because he isn’t facing any charges. Crown counsel Henry Waldock agreed that the neurological report showed that Miller was unfit to stand trial. “He forgets what happened yesterday,” noted Waldock. “If that’s the case, how is he going to participate at trial?” Miller has been held in custody at a forensic psychiatric hospital in See MILLER, Page 10

Vimy Ridge honoured both here and abroad BY CORNELIA NAYLOR

eterans, cadets, law enforcement personnel and onlookers gathered at All Sappers Memorial Park Monday at 11 a.m. to mark the 95th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. By the time the last post played in Chilliwack, however, ceremonies had already wrapped up 7,776 kilometres away inVimy, France where 11 Chilliwack middle school (CMS) students paid tribute to the same event. The students, who joined kids from schools across Canada to mark the anniversary, left on their oneweek educational tour last week with parent chaperones and CMS teacher Janet Crawford. The group star ted Monday morning with a cold, rainy and silent march from the town of Givenchy-en-Gohelle to the Canadian National Vimy Memorial three kilometres away. See VIMY RIDGE, Page 10

hile Premier Christy Clark touts the government’s jobs plan as her primary agenda item, the NDP and the Conservatives both say the Liberals are failing on the employment issue. Clark was in Chilliwack last week in support of Chilliwack-Hope byelection candidate Laurie Throness, and to push the jobs agenda. “Our government is in favour of economic development,” Clark told reporters at IMW Industries on Wednesday. “We want to create jobs for families across the province.” Earlier that week, NDP leader Adrian Dix met with a retired seniors and two individuals who complained how difficult it is to find work in Chilliwack and Hope. “This has been the lowest period of economic growth in my lifetime,” Dix said. When asked about Dix’s comment, Clark said the NDP leader “wasn’t good at math the last time he was in the Premier’s office either.” “The last month for which we have statistics there were 8,000 jobs created in British Columbia,” the Premier said. “I don’t know where Adrian Dix comes up with this stuff. It’s typical NDP math.” Clark was referring to February Labour Force Survey numbers, which saw 21,600 full-time jobs created from January to February in B.C., and 12,600 part-times jobs eliminated. The total increase was 9,100 jobs. But when March employment numbers came out the next day, positive numbers were reported nearly everywhere but in B.C., Ontario and

Premier Christy Clark and BC Liberal Chilliwack-Hope byelection candidate Laurie Throness at IMW last week where they touted the government’s jobs plan. Quebec created jobs but B.C. lost 8,900 full-time jobs. “Unemployment is up since Premier Clark announced her Jobs Plan in September,” said BC Conservative leader John Cummins in a press release. “More people are looking for work. . . . B.C. was the only western province to lose jobs in March. We are falling further and further behind the rest of the west.” Both Dix and Cummins have the same message from very different points of view: the cost of living— MSP, Hydro, ICBC—for middle class families in B.C. is a serious problem. Spending promises Since the BC Liberals are the governing party, Throness says his party’s tax-and-spending plan is available for



he Internet and social media has played a role—how important is debatable—in elections for a few years now. In the Chilliwack-Hope byelection, all three main candidates have websites as well as Twitter and Facebook accounts to get their messages out. On Facebook, O’Mahony has 332 likes at “Gwen O’Mahony,” Throness has 182 likes at “Laurie Throness ChilliwackHope,” and Martin has 55 likes at “John Martin for MLA.” On Twitter, Throness has 237 followers, is following 376, and has made 29 updates since he started using the account on March 13.

all to see at But both the New Democrats and the Conservatives have been tightlipped on how a government run by their parties would do things differently. Dix has made a few promises that he says are fully costed, such as the $100 million post-secondary student grant program to be paid for by the reinstatement of a tax on financial institutions. “The BC Liberal plan is there in black and white,” Throness said in a press release. “What the NDP and BC Conservatives are asking voters to support is reckless. You wouldn’t sign a contract to buy a new home unless you know how much it was going to cost—and how you were going to pay for it.”

Martin has 61 Twitter followers. He is following 24, and has made 18 updates since he started using the account on March 22. O’Mahony has 249 Twitter followers. She is following 152, and has made a total of 147 updates. Eighty-eight of those are since she started using the account for this election on Feb. 17. Before Feb. 17, O’Mahony’s last Tweet was May 3, a day after the federal election in which she ran for the NDP in Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon. Twitter has been full of debate, speculation and even attacks on the topic of the Chilliwack-Hope byelection in recent weeks. Supporters of each of the three parties are Tweeting comments and links to news stories and partisan information.

The fourth way There is a fourth candidate in the Chilliwack-Hope byelection on April 19 as Port Coquitlam resident Lewis Clarke Dahlby entered the race for the B.C. Libertarian Party. Dahlby ran under the Libertarian banner in the 2009 provincial election in Port Coquitlam and received 178 votes, or 0.88 per cent. He also ran in the 2008, 2006 and 2004 federal elections in the Port Moody-Westwood-Port Coquitlam riding. Each time Dahlby received less than one per cent of the vote. Libertarians generally favour little or no government power. The statement of purposes on the BCLP membership application says the applicant supports the party’s purposes, including: “To foster and encourage the principle that no individual or group shall initiate the use of force or fraud against any other or as a means of achieving political or social goals.” A debate or two The candidates have two chances this week to face off on the issues in the Chilliwack-Hope byelection.

For Liberal fans who want to get involved there is a “Join the Digital Brigade” link on Throness’s website where visitors can sign up to help “get the facts out.” “When our political opponents attack, grassroots BC Liberals hit back with the facts,” the page says. All three candidates also have websites:;; and





he Chilliwack school board might have looked like it was violating the School Act and its own policy when it let one trustee participate in meetings via the Internet, but its proceedings would still hold up in a court of law. That was the opinion of the board’s lawyers outlined in a letter last week. School district staff sought the legal advice after one trustee and a parent complained the board had violated the School Act and local board policy by allowing trustee Doug McKay to participate in meetings on Feb. 28 and March 13 from Arizona through an Internet connection. According to the School Act and local Policy 207, trustees can participate in meetings and vote on motions via a phone link or Internet connection if “all Trustees and other persons participating in or attending the meeting are able to communicate with each other.” Those criteria weren’t met for McKay, who because of technical difficulties could only communicate with the computers of secretary-treasurer Maureen Carradice and assistant superintendent Rohan Arul-Pragasam. That drew criticism from District Parent Advisory Council president Gord Byers at the March 13 meeting and later from trustee Heather Maahs in an email citing the School Act and arguing McKay’s votes during those meetings shouldn’t count. The board’s lawyers, however, don’t agree. “While it is clear that a portion of the March 13th meeting did not allow all persons participating in or attending the meeting to hear Trustee McKay due to technical difficulties and this was prima facie con-

trary to Policy 207 (and the legislation which underlies the Policy), in our opinion, this departure from Policy is not sufficient, by itself, [to] invalidate the Board’s proceedings on March 13th,” states an April 5 email to the board from Vancouver education lawyer Wendy Harris. Harris listed several circumstances that would make it unlikely for a court of law to invalidate McKay’s participation: the technical difficulties that prevented him from communicating were unplanned, he could communicate his vote and his vote was recorded, no one objected to carrying on with the meeting and letting him vote, and he was in the majority for the only contentious motion his vote would have made a difference to, so him speaking in favour wouldn’t have affected the vote. Based on the information given to her by district staff, Harris said her opinion was “that there was no denial of a fair hearing resulting from the inadvertent failure of the teleconferencing system, nor was there a breach of the Board Policy or the School Act sufficient to invalidate the Board proceedings on March 13th.” Despite that reassurance, however, superintendent Michael Audet is making several recommendations to avoid future problems around the electronic participation trustees. In a report that he will present to trustees at a meeting Tuesday, he says the board should request staff to provide it with different options for electronic communication, backup solutions for when service is interrupted and input on which meetings might not be appropriate for electronic participation. ◗ The next regular public school board meeting is Tuesday, April 10 at the school district office, 8430 Cessna Dr., at 7 p.m.

One week or two for spring break?


he Chilliwack school district is looking for public input on the possibility of a two-week spring break next year. Staff, parents, students and other community members can have their say on the idea until April 19 via an online survey on the School District No. 33 website. District staff are once again exploring an extended vacation because next year’s break, scheduled for March 18 to 22, ends just four days before the Easter holidays and many students will probably take those days off anyway. Last year’s spring vacation was extended

Farmers take to the field

Loss of ASU jobs sad for city: mayor




his Saturday, farmers from around B.C. will gather on a Chilliwack farm for the 90th annual Chilliwack Plowing Match. The event once attracted upwards of 1,000 spectators and remains a highlight of rural life in the Fraser Valley. To city slickers, though, the appeal of the event can seem a bit strange. We’re talking, after all, about a horse or tractor slowly pulling a plow up and down a patch of dirt in a very straight line. But if you run into Francois Freyvogel this Saturday, you’ll find out why the plowing match has endured for so long. “Ninety bloody years!” he tells the Times, his Swiss accent brimming with enthusiasm. “That is a long time.” He has no trouble explaining why farmers are still turning up dirt for competition’s sake. “It’s quite an intricate thing once you actually watch it,” he says. “I know a lot of people say, well, watching plowing is like letting paint dry because you spend the whole day there watching a horse turn over furrows, right?” Freyvogel chuckles with good humour. “But once you know the details in it— that you are only allowed to go so deep, then it makes it far more interesting.” There are classes for draft horses, antique tractors, young plowers and an open class. Growing up in Switzerland after the Second World War, Freyvogel saw farmers revert to the use of horses in the fields. He gained an admiration and fondness for the animals and used to compete before losing one of his horses several years ago. “I find it fun to see what you can do with a good team of horses,” he said. “A good teamster must have a good going team. If the team doesn’t go, you can be as good on the plow as you want, but you are buggered.” Freyvogel explains: “You depend on two horses. If one of them or both of them don’t pull along,

There’s nothing you can do. “A match is being judged on the straightness of the furrow, how well you cover the weeds—a judge does not want to see a lot of weeds, you should cover those buggers—you should have a firm furrow, then you make a crown. “In other words, if one horse of yours does not go straight, or just forgets what he’s supposed to do and goes out of the furrows, he buggers up the whole bloody lot.” For Freyvogel, there’s nothing quite like watching a plowing match—provided the sun is shining. “The whole smell, the smell of leather with the soil, it’s a beautiful feeling—if it’s a nice day. If it’s going to rain on Saturday, then it’s BS, of course, to put it bluntly,” he

says, laughing yet again. Plowing match starts Friday Chilliwack Plowing Match includes the B.C. Plowing Championships, which actually begin Friday. The winner of the championships will move on to compete in Manitoba at the Canadian championships. The victor there will represent Canada in Alberta in 2013 at the world championships. The Chilliwack Plowing Match starts Saturday at 10:30 a.m. and features horseshoeing demonstrations by local farriers, hay rides, refreshments, lunch, and even a mayors plowing class. Anybody will be able to try their hand at an old walking plow. Admission is $5. The match is held on McLeod Road, near the intersection withYale Road. (Closest address is 9825 McLeod Rd.)

Pipeline opposition gains momentum BY PAUL J. HENDERSON


pposition is growing to an oilsands pipeline twinning project through Chillwack and the Lower Mainland that hasn’t even been applied for yet. An ad hoc group of Abbotsford and Chilliwack residents scheduled a meeting for Wednesday night to talk about the Kinder Morgan oil pipeline expansion proposal. The $3.8 billion project is in the early stag-

es and no application has yet been made to the National Energy Board. The company did complete an assessment of commercial interest and said it would announce the scope of the project soon. Through Chilliwack, the pipeline runs under farmers’ fields, school yards, suburban lawns, the Vedder River and Kinkora Golf Course. Vancouver city councillor and former Green Party of B.C. leader Adriane Carr said even though the pipeline doesn’t run

through her city (the terminal is in Burnaby) she has an interest. “The interest is obviously in that [a spill resulting from] increased tanker traffic would end up on our beaches and our shores and we have a tourism-based economy,” she told theTimes. “It’s a huge risk here” Carr said she would attend the meeting on April 11 at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium of the Abbotsford campus of the University of the Fraser Valley. “We have to be pretty united as municipalities on this,” Carr said.

ome Canadian Forces soldiers will continue to be stationed at Area Support Unit Chilliwack, but the loss of more than a dozen wellpaying jobs is bad news for the city, according to Mayor Sharon Gaetz. “It affects every neighbourhood,” she told the Times. “These are civilians, they volunteer in our community . . . they’re part of our community so of course we really care deeply and feel sad these cuts have to be made.” Last week, the Union of National Defence Employees was told that 18 positions at ASU Chilliwack would be eliminated as part of nationwide cuts to the Department of National Defence. While the union was told that ASU Chilliwack could close—and although the closures of army support units was presented as an option in an internal army plan obtained by the Ottawa Citizen in March—Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl said in a press release Thursday that he has “been assured that the Canadian Forces will continue to maintain a permanent presence in Chilliwack as some personnel transition elsewhere to meet emerging needs.” In the press release, Strahl said no changes will occur until next year. He said the changes are meant to “streamline the procurement of support equipment and spare parts and enhance human resources management.” The Times requested an interview, but Strahl was not available. Gaetz heard the news of the cuts from an ASU Chilliwack employee Wednesday afternoon. “We know that right now we have engineers that are on the base and apparently they will remain. It will be used as a garrison so people coming home from Afghanistan will be in Chilliwack for a period of time,” she said. “But I still think this is really sad for the city of Chilliwack. You think of 30 people out of work, that’s a huge hit to any community. . . We’re very disappointed.” Gaetz spoke Wednesday to Strahl, who reiterated that the cuts would take place in 2013 and that the army would retain a presence in Chilliwack. “We’re a little bit touchy about touching the military because we live in an area that is prone to earthquakes and flooding and so we want to make sure that there is a continued military presence,” said Gaetz. But she wished more information was forthcoming. “I just really hope that we soon hear more news from the federal government. It’s a little disconcerting to hear it from the employees before the government.” UNDE vice-president for British Columbia T. Mark Miller said the Department of National Defence is looking to “divest” some of its infrastructure and land to the Canada Lands Corporation, the federal Crown corporation that helped develop the adjacent Canada Education Park. He said that it was possible that a small number of civilian jobs, in the single digits, may be maintained at the site.

◗ Opinion

Remember them properly


esterday marked the 95th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge, a First World War battle many see as pivotal in Canada’s coming of age as a nation. I’m torn. As proud Canadian who knows she’s being manipulated by patriotic Tim Hortons commercials during the winter Olympics but can’t help tearing up anyway, I value every bit of this country’s scant national mythology, of whichVimy Ridge is a compelling part. But as a pacifist who’s read All Quite On theWestern Front and was raised on tales of the senselessness and brutality of war by two German parents who lived through one, I’m troubled byVimy—especially now. There were no FirstWorldWar veterans at All Sappers Memorial Park in Chilliwack when the anniversary was marked Monday. Canada’s last First World War veterans died in 2010. It made me think about why we gather to remember these things. It made me wonder if we can remember them properly when all the people who were actually there are gone. It reminded me of one of the things I hate most about having lost my mom. You see, without her around to correct my memory, she is slowly morphing into the ideal of perfect motherhood. Don’t get me wrong; I loved my mom with all my heart and she was a great mom in many ways, but she


Hard Core also drove me crazy sometimes, and her character flaws were very real. It’s always struck me as tragic the way people’s real warts-and-all self is smoothed over after they die. While that may be OK for our memories of our moms and dads, though, it’s downright dangerous for it to happen to our memories of events like Vimy Ridge. With all the men who experienced the horrors of those four days, when 10,602 young Canadian men were killed and maimed and many more forever psychological broken, it will become more and more tempting for us to remember the event only as a heroic endeavour when a young nation first pulled together as one. Smoothed over are the miserable deaths of teenagers calling for their mothers as the world exploded around them. With all the veterans who saw these things gone, it’s more important than ever to remember the whole battle, warts-and-all and not just the firm-jawed military stereotypes that will be all too easy to exploit the next time the world’s leaders fail to find a peaceful solu-

tion to their conflicting interests. But how do we hold the real story in our heads? Well, Janet Crawford, a Chilliwack middle school teacher who accompanied 11 CMS students to Vimy, France for the 95th anniversary, has made a pretty good start. “For me, what I see making the difference here is the personal touch,” she said speaking to the CBC from Vimy on Monday. “The personal acts of remembrance, and you see that everywhere.” While in France, for example, CMS students got a chance to read a two-page letter one Canadian soldier wrote home—his last before he was killed. It was filled with descriptions of the fear he felt getting up every morning to fight. Such stories brought the war home to students like Julia Hendley. “I have cousins the same age as some of the soldiers that lost their lives at Vimy,” she said, “and I can’t imagine if they went halfway across the world to fight for their life with the chance that they would never come back.” If we are to prevent our remembrance from becoming merely a hollow display, easily manipulated by the powers that be, those are the kinds of connections we have to make for ourselves and the generations that come after us—connections that continue to weigh the sacrifices of an earlier generation against the things we ourselves hold dear.

n the days since the federal government’s announcement that eligibility for old age security (OAS) payments would be raised to 67 from 65 there has been relatively little outcry. Of course, the people who would be in the streets protesting—those nearing retirement—will not be affected, since only Canadians younger than 54 are targeted. In one sense, that’s a good thing, since it wouldn’t be fair to spring such a surprise on those 55 and older, who are likely factoring OAS payments into their retirement planning. In another sense, it’s political rather than practical, since Prime Minister Stephen Harper—like any other politician— knows better than to anger the grey-haired set. These, after all, are the people who vote in the highest numbers. Decades ago, we used to equate being retired—or to use a term that seems to have fallen out of favour, being “a pensioner”—with scrimping, saving and generally living a modest life. But in recent years, poverty rates among seniors have fallen dramatically. In 1976, for example, 29 per cent of Canadian seniors were classified as living in poverty. In 2008, that number was 5.8 per cent. Nowadays, in fact, it is seniors—and many of the baby boomers trailing behind them—who are cruising around the world, living in paid-for homes worth $1 million and generally living the high life. It’s the generations coming up behind— those in their 20s, 30s and 40s—who lost the lottery of timing. For these people, two incomes are a must, post-secondary education (and the tens of thousands of dollars in students loans it often entails) is required and the job market is one of the toughest in recent memory. If they live in Metro Vancouver, they’re also facing the absurd situation of having to pay 10.6 times the average household income for a home, compared to the three-times factor enjoyed by previous generations. Add all of this up, and it’s not seniors we need to worry about. It’s their children and grandchildren—who are too busy trying to survive to worry about retirement. For these generations, the challenges are just beginning.

Serious threat to our air

Editor: Re: Air pollution. The serious threat to the health of the population of the Fraser Valley was increased with the recent action of the Liberal Minister of the Environment, Terry Lake, in approving “Metro Vancouver’s Solid Waste Management Plan.” This plan includes a proposal to build a garbage incinerator to burn 500,000 tonnes of Vancouver region’s trash, converting it to ash and volatile toxic fumes which will enter the air stream and be trapped in the Fraser Valley. At certain times of the year, often following a temperature inversion, pooling of polluted air over eastern Vancouver occurs and can be witnessed from the Port Mann bridge area. This polluted mass of air is finally blown into the funnel which is the Fraser Valley where the pollution crosses the threshold of human tolerance and the most sensitive, young children, asthmatic adults and those with chronic respiratory obstructive disease, arrive in the emergency departments of our hospitals. It is inconsistent and contradictory for the Minister of Health to expect the health of the population to improve when the Minister of the Environment approves Vancouver’s Waste Management Plan, which will undoubtedly diminish the health of the population! Let us realise the termW.T.E. (waste-to-energy) facility is nothing more than a euphemism for a sophisticated incinerator. I note that the Liberal candidate, LaurieThroness, holds out hope“for some kind of zero-emission technology.” This is politically soothing but also absolute nonsense as no such thing as zero-emission technology can exist as matter cannot be destroyed but only converted into toxic gases and finer particulates, which can enter even more deeply into the lung.

The purpose of my letter is to expose the incongruity of the intentions of the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of the Environment who do not seem at all clear about the dangers to the public health of the million citizens of the Fraser Valley on incinerating garbage. It is truly a different sort of political mess ! H. Derrick Rogers Chilliwack

Mining should be an issue Editor: Where aggregate mining should be located within the FVRD should be a byelection issue. The current conflict that is seething amongst many residents whose anger is about to explode is regarding the flawed and biased Aggregate Pilot Project concocted behind closed doors for nine years with the directors of the FVRD, Randy Hawes, past Minister of Mines, and aggregate business men. Public meetings were held to tell the public that their homes are located in a green area and the existing bylaws will not be enforced. The historic scenic ride along the Lougheed Highway from Mission to Hope is already marred from the ugly scars of aggregate mines but there is no end in sight. They

want every last stone. The argument is aggregate is a vital commodity that creates jobs and the roads that are close to the pits make it economically viable. The questions of how is it affecting the watershed that feeds into salmon spawning creeks, lakes and the mighty Fraser and community wells need consideration. The FVRD is surrounded by mountains but the trees and vegetation that are a vital part of life are scraped bare, allowing the airshed to rain plumes of dust particles down from the pits. Silt flows into creeks. The discharge from the idling trucks, the pollution drifting in from Vancouver, is trapped by the mountains and the airshed has more poison than Vancouver. The constant crashing and blasting that send shocks awake sleeping babies, night workers and the sick. The loss of revenue from the tourist industry is greatly affected. Tourists stay away. Presently a gravel pit is waiting for a permit to mine above a tourist camp ground, a salmon spawning lake, the community of the Scowlitz First Nation, and another community of over 300 homes. A positive change needs to happen for our communities, for animals and our environment and it should start with our elected officials. Sylvia Langmann Lake Errock

Stand trial MILLER, from page 1 Port Coquitlam. He will likely remain there. By law, he must appear in front of a judge within two years in order to determine whether there is enough evidence to still justify charges. Joyce directed the court to schedule an appearance for Miller for February 2014. However, Huntington’s cannot be reversed and there is no expectation that Miller will ever stand trial.

VIMY RIDGE, from page 1 “You would have been astounded because those three kilometres that we walked, all you heard was our footsteps,” said Crawford in an interview with the CBC’s Stephen Quinn on the Early Edition Monday. “The students didn’t talk; they didn’t laugh, and lining the streets were a lot of senior citizens. People had Canadian flags decorating their houses. Many people came out to take our pictures, so it was a very powerful service in the morning.” The Battle of Vimy Ridge in

Being there intensifies the emotions spring of 1917 is considered a pivotal moment in Canadian history. Although it resulted in a staggering 10,602 Canadian casualties, including 3,598 deaths, over four days, the battle also marked the first time all four divisions of the Canadian Corps fought as one unit—and won where others had failed. For Crawford, teaching history by visiting the sites where events actually took place is important. “There’s that emotional connection that’s made,” she said. “You

Mannheim Emporium ...from Quality Antiques to Shabby-chic Furniture


“We just trying to show people that we’re doing a little bit of everything,” said Grasslin.

s a history buff, Mannheim Emporium owner Don Grasslin is drawn to antiques because of the story behind each piece, but he sees them as a good financial investment too.

Although he’s been in business for years (he took over Nicks Lighting from his father eight years ago) Grasslin and his business partners (son Nicolas, 18, and daughter Rachel, 21) are still learning what’s hot in antiques.

“If you fill your house full of antiques, in 10 years you could get all your money back if you bought decent stuff,” he said.

Mannheim Emporium is located off MacIntosh Drive by the Yale Road overpass and is open Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Another thing that’s taken off at Mannheim is “shabby chic” furniture—Rachel’s specialty.

Antique buffs will also find a quirky collection of smaller curiosities, like a vintage sterling silver mesh purse or Victorian-era lay-down perfume bottles, as well as Coca-Cola memorabilia and vintage tobacco cans.

Starting with a solid antique that has a few dings or maybe a dark wood stain that would take too much time to strip down and refinish, Rachel cleans, paints and then sands back parts of the piece until a bit of the wood peaks through. Waxed for a durable finish, the final product is a piece of furniture that has all the workmanship of an antique


“We’re getting a good response because people from all demographics now are saying, ‘Hey, this is neat. This could work in my house,’” said Grasslin of his shabby-chic clients. “They see it and they just fall in love with it.”

“We’ve sold a whole ton of it,” said Grasslin.

Mannheim Emporium’s 1,500 square feet are packed with up to 100 pieces of quality antique furniture—everything from vintage mirrors and umbrella stands to cabinets and trunks, including two that date back to the 17th Century.


without the formality.

Vintage shaving paraphernalia, for example.

That’s why his MacIntosh Drive business, which opened its doors in February, focuses on quality.

Bike Park delayed due to weather


oggy weather in March will delay the opening of the Island 22 Bike Park, according to the Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD). While a perimeter trail and various jump features have been constructed, the saturated ground will force work crews with park designer Hoots Inc. off the site for the next month. “With only five days of good weather during the entire month of March, the Hoots Inc. crew was unable to continue working due to not being able to import dirt and due to high moisture levels at the site,” an FVRD press release said. The release continued: “The Hoots crew will leave the site for a month, in order to allow the ground to dry and harden and will return to continue work on the Island 22 Bike Park project as soon as the site is once again ready for construction.” Weather delays will likely mean that riders won’t be able to hit the trails until mid- to late June.

Hemlock Ski team earns experience

Pink Panthers on the prowl BY CORNELIA NAYLOR


h, spring when a young woman’s fancy lightly turns to thoughts of fieldhockey—Pink Panthers fieldhockey that is. The local club, which runs teams from the U12 to U18 level every spring, started practices again last week, and players from rival local high schools and middle schools gathered once again under a united Pink Panthers banner. “It’s fun, and I like to learn fieldhockey more and get to know more people,” said veteran Kyra Vanderveen, a Chilliwack secondary student who’s been playing with the Pink since Grade 6. “I’ll get a lot more practice and more game time overall,” said Agassiz secondary student Megan Debruyn, who’s checking out the team for the first time this year. A love of fieldhockey also brought Sardis secondary student Tori Kuhn back for a second season, but she’s in it for the camaraderie too, citing “wonderful teammates” and “good friendships” as reasons for her return. “Tournaments are fun,” she said. “We go to a lot of tournaments.” The Panthers, whose season runs from April to the end of June, usually attract about 80 players over four teams, coached by three local teach-

oung Hemlock Ski Team members put in solid performances racing against elite skiers from across B.C. at the provincial ski championships for the K1 (11-12 years) level held last month at Big White. For three of the four K1 racers from Hemlock (Megan Kardoes, Lena Liljedahl and Katrina Voss), this was their first year at the provincials where they were given the opportunity to compete and gain valuable experience. “I was impressed with the team’s performance at the Ski Cross race,” said Chilliwackbased head coach Kelly Blair. “This is a new event for B.C. Alpine and therefore, most K1 racers will have had no prior ski cross racing experience.”

No second straight title for Hockley


espite a solid weekend, Chilliwack’s Dale Hockley wasn’t able to secure a second straight title at the Canadian Police Curling Championships last weekend in Quebec. Hockley, joined by lead Dean Cross, second Randy Nelson and third Glen Brennan, finished third in the round robin with a record of 7-4. That was good enough to make the playoffs, but Hockley lost a dramatic extra-end game to the host rink to bow out.

Chilliwack’s Bantam AA Cougars won their first three games to start the season.

Ken Goudswaard/TIMES

AA Cougars open strong


hilliwack’s Bantam AA Cougars opened their season with three wins, including a dramatic seventh inning comeback victory Saturday over the Vancouver Yankees. Trailing Vancouver 2-0 heading into the seventh and final inning, the Cougars loaded the bases then got a clutch one-out single from Josh Anderson to tie the game. After a Devyn Heggs sacrifice fly moved the winning run to third base, Colin Kellington crossed home on a wild pitch to give the Cougars their third straight win to start the season. Starting pitcher Donovan Moorman allowed only one run over three innings, while Parker Logan struck out six and gave up only one run in the final four innings. Alex Lieper made a spectacular

sliding catch in centrefield while Heggs was a force behind the plate, throwing out four runners attempting to steal extra bases. The Cougars opened their season last week with wins over Cloverdale and Abbotsord. Lieper’s solid defence in left

field helped Chilliwack down the Cloverdale Spurs 5-1 last Wednesday. Pitchers Logan, Anderson and Dan Rogers combined to hold the Spurs offence in check. The Cougars batsmen combined for 15 hits with Heggs leading the offence, going three-for-three with a double. Kellington and Anderson each went two-forthree. The Cougars followed the win with an 11-0 demolition of Abbotsford Thursday. The Cougars’ offence was anchored by Kellington and Tony Pharand, who both went three-for-three at the dish. The Cougars take on the Vancouver Community Cardinals Saturday at 3 p.m. at Fairfield Island. Chilliwack’s Midget AAA Cougars will also be in action. They host Victoria at 1 p.m., also at Fairfield Island.

Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
