The Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce told executive director Patti MacAhonic she will have to step down if she wins the NDP nomination on Jan. 19.

hilliwack’s worst-kept secret is finally out. Chamber of Commerce executive director Patti MacAhonic will vie for the NDP nomination for the Chilliwack riding in the spring provincial election. MacAhonic made her announcement Monday morning at an event held at the Best Western. Rumours of MacAhonic’s plan to run for the NDP go back to last summer when she told the Times she was asked by the party to con-

sider running. Yale resident Dennis Adamson, second-term Area A director for the Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD), will also seek the NDP nomination, which will be decided at a meeting Jan. 19 at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. Adamson lost the NDP nomination for last year’s Chilliwack-Hope byelection to eventual winner Gwen O’Mahony.

Adamson lives in the Fraser Canyon but said he resided in Chilliwack for seven years and, because of his work at the FVRD, he is familiar with local issues. At the event Monday, MacAhonic spoke to provincewide polls that see BC Liberal fortunes sinking. “I believe that the NDP is wellpositioned to win the province and don’t we want Chilliwack at the table?” she said.

When asked if the departure of long-time Chilliwack MLA John Les helped her chances, MacAhonic chose to focus on the current candidate. “There are two ways of looking at it: John [Les] had a long run here and he had some difficulties and that might have been time if he had stuck around,” she said. “And the fact that

ritish Columbia’s worst norovirus outbreak in recent years has swept across the Fraser Valley, including Chilliwack, according to Fraser Health. Norovirus affects sufferers’ gastrointestinal systems, with symptoms including nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and stomach cramps. While those symptoms usually subside in one to three days and the virus is rarely dangerous, it is extremely contagious. And this year’s norovirus is even worse, thanks to a new strain— against which people have not built up an immunity—that has spread around the world this winter. “The norovirus for the moment is very widespread throughout all our communities,” Fraser Health spokesperson Tasleem Juma said. “It’s very easily transmitted. What we’re seeing right now is hundreds of cases across the region.” Juma said the virus has been detected in Fraser Health hospitals and residential care homes. But Fraser Health said it has not yet had to declare an “outbreak” in any of its facilities—outbreaks are declared when a unit or ward experiences three or more cases. “Yes we have noro in Chilliwack, but we have noro everywhere,” Juma said. “It’s as easily transmitted as you coughing on your hand and touching a doorknob and someone else touching the doorknob and then touching their face.” The Coastal Health Authority has not been so lucky. It closed one acute care ward last week and enacted containment protocol at two other sites to try and stop the spread of the virus. See NOROVIRUS, Page 4

to never try to steal again. And he reveals a deeper understanding of the economics of shoplifting, noting that theft forces stores to raise prices to compensate for their losses. He told the Times that writing the letter made him consider the broader effect of his actions when he shoplifted. “They have to take measures,” he said. “Usually they have to hire more secret shoppers or have to put in video cameras here and there and that all costs money.” That thinking came through in the letter, in which he wrote: “I believe my stealing affected the community because they have to pay those higher prices.”

Grew up knowing the rules Like most 17-year-old teenagers, Tony had been in trouble before— but it was nothing compared to this. Back in seventh grade he had been caught lighting firecrackers and suspended from school. But it was nothing like this. Not only were the police involved, and the grocery store could opt to press charges, but his own father was saying that Tony might deserve to end up in court. Tony’s mother was stunned. “I was mortified,” she says now, sixodd months later. “I couldn’t believe that [Tony] would have done that.

Tyler Olsen/TIMES

Tony, a Chilliwack teen caught shoplifting at a local grocery store, said writing a letter of apology helped him understand the negative repercussions of stealing. “We’ve always promoted that that sort of thing is wrong. “I grew up very religiously,” she said. “You don’t lie, you don’t steal, you just don’t do that sort of thing.” Needless to say, Tony was grounded. But with the RCMP involved, it wouldn’t be just Tony’s parents doling out the punishment. That’s why, despite his father’s initial throw-the-book-at-him fury, the family was pleased when the RCMP officer who handled Tony’s case referred the teen not to the criminal courts but rather to the Chilliwack Restorative Justice Society. Restorative Justice is an “alternative justice system” that emphasizes community service, education and, if possible reconciliation between offenders and victims. It’s a program created, essentially, for offenders just like Tony. Told he would be spared criminal

charges if he entered the program, Tony met with Restorative Justice volunteers, who went to work trying to understand why an honours student would commit a crime just to get a pool float. “I’ve learnt a lot from it,” he said. If he could go back in time and speak to himself just before he put those pool floats in his back pack, Tony said he’d: “Give myself a smack and be like, ‘Smarten up.’” The process was illuminating for all sides, and Tony was “sentenced” to five hours of labour at the West Coast Kart Club’s Greg Moore Raceway. He also wrote a letter of apology to the grocery store manager that explained his shift in thinking since the incident. After apologizing, Tony writes that his actions have caused humiliation and forced him to endure the judgment of his parents. He pledges

Mother grateful there was another way The Restorative Justice process earned high marks from Tony and his mother, and not just because it eschewed the criminal justice system. Tony said he felt like the volunteers understood and liked him, and that they were trying to learn about what prompted him to commit a spur-ofthe-moment crime. “I feel it’s really good because they do help kids get through that and get past it,” Tony said. “It’s better to have someone to talk to who understands what you’re going through and what’s going on than someone who doesn’t know and is just judging you.” And his mother is grateful that there was a formal way for his son to face consequences, but not be saddled with a criminal record. Tony clearly knew he was wrong. He’d heard it over and over again. So his mother was pleased to see the Restorative Justice volunteers focus on getting Tony to acknowledge the consequences of his actions, and then move on. “Rather than telling [Tony] how wrong he was, they were trying to help him,” she said. And in the end, Tony’s mother says that, by getting caught stealing, her son has learned a valuable lesson that should last him the rest of his life. “It’s one thing as parents to tell him it’s wrong to steal, but for him—I mean, I still wish he hadn’t have done it—to see what happens when you do steal and how it not only affects you but all the people around you . . . even though it seems weird to say it, it was a good experience.”

was going to be easy, or so Tony was told. Just walk into the grocery store, and grab a pair of inflatable pool floats. Maybe grab a pump—you don’t want to have to blow the floats up by yourself. Take them to the bathroom. Stash the boxes in your backpack. Walk out the store. And now here he was, accosted by a security guard, dragged back into the store, and waiting in a dark room for a police officer to come take him to his parents. Who knows where the other kid went to—the friend of a friend who, as they prepared to catch the bus to Cultus Lake, encouraged him to steal the pool floats. All Tony (theTimes has changed his name) knew was that his father would be furious.

new host organization didn’t slow down Operation Red Nose in 2012. Volunteers gave more than 600 tipsy revelers rides homes over the holiday season and raised more than $10,000 for the Kiwanis Club of Sardis, which took over the program from the Chilliwack Restorative Justice and Youth Advocacy Association (CRJYAA). In total, Volunteers for the campaign logged 410 hours and delivered 657 cars and their owners home safe and sound, according to co-ordinator Chris Kizmann. The month-long operation wrapped up New Year’s Eve with 111 teams—many composed of Kiwanis members—having hit the road. Those teams drove a total of 16,547 kilometres and raised $11,772.63 in donations

The six-pound, 13-ounce boy’s due date was Jan. 10, but because no babies were born on Jan. 1 at Chilliwack General Hospital (CGH), little Austin’s arrival at 10:33 a.m. on Jan. 2 made him the New Year’s Baby. The day after the birth, mom Jessica Bitz was with father Gilbert Fenton at CGH where she said she was “excited and happy but tired too.” The healthy boy’s full name is Austin Bradley James Fenton-Bitz. It was the second time in six years that Chilliwack’s New Years Baby was not born on Jan. 1. Two years ago, Karissa Faith Lillian McAuley was born on Jan. 2 at 1:02 p.m. The first baby of 2013 born in the Fraser Health region was Shane Greenwood who arrived at 12:26 a.m. at Langley Memorial Hospital.

Chilliwack teen dies in snowmobiling crash

BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

A

Chilliwack teen lost her life last weekend in a snowmobile accident. Billie Brittany Bell, 16, died after a crash near the Coquihalla Lakes Lodge—about

halfway between Hope and Merritt—on Dec. 30. Police say Bell lost control of the snowmobile she was riding after hitting a pair of bumps. Bell and the snowmobile crashed into a tree, but the girl’s body was then thrown into another tree. Despite wearing a helmet, Bell sustained massive head injuries. She was

airlifted to Royal Columbian Hospital, where she died from her injuries. The Coroners Service is continuing its investigation. Bell’s father was with his daughter at the time of the accident, according to RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth.

In Chilliwack, the Birchwood Retirement Suites was forced to deal with an outbreak of its own. On Friday, general manager April MacKenzie said it seemed like the worst was over. She said that at one point, around 15 residents were exhibiting symptoms of the virus. The Birchwood has limited activities for residents and scaled up sanitization and hand-washing vigilance. The facility has also been restricting visitors from the community, and a sign declaring the outbreak greets those arriving at the building’s doors. For Fraser Health, the declaration of an outbreak triggers a variety of automatic procedures, from increased cleaning and sanitary precautions to the divvying up

from riders. That money will go to the Kiwanis’s various youth-oriented programs in Chilliwack, Kizmann said. Kizmann said the service club deliberately followed the model established by the CRJYAA, which grew Operation Red Nose to the point that it was no longer able to handle both the program and its own services. The busiest night was New Year’s Eve, with 55 volunteers providing 96 rides home. “How t h e c o m m u n i t y responded and the volunteers responded was the most impressive thing,” Kizmann said. And that translated to happy riders. “People were very happy with the service, [and] happy to get the ride home.” In 13 British Columbia cities, 4,555 volunteers gave 8,082 rides. A total of 87,761 rides were provided throughout Canada.

Wash hands of staff, so nurses do not deal with both infected and noninfected patients. Until then, for hospital staff and those in the community, Juma said “hand hygiene is the best way to deal with noro.” Those who do contract the virus should stay home from work and restrict contact with others. “If you really are exhibiting symptoms, do stay home,” she pleaded. The virus should pass, but if a visit to hospital is required, a person should immediately identify his or her symptoms. Even after the symptoms abate, Juma said a person can still be infectious and should limit contact with others and wash their hands regularly.

NDP, from page 1 they have brought in John Martin who is not sure what he [is]—he is a Conservative and now he is a Liberal—I think doesn’t hurt me at all either.” MacAhonic is the single mother of three children who moved to Chilliwack at the age of 29 after her husband died as a result of an industrial accident. Orion Engar, who introduced MacAhonic Monday, pointed to this incident 22 years ago and her subsequent work in logging and mining as an example of her mettle. “This is one tough woman,” he said. After being widowed, MacAhonic helped push for legislation to protect the survivors of workplace fatalities. She then spent 15 years volunteering with the Canadian Injured Workers Alliance and, before being hired as executive director of the Chamber on Nov. 1, 2011, she was the executive director of the British Columbia Wildlife Federation. When asked Friday what motivated her to run, her first response was the HST.

After piercing the exterior pane, the bullet had not had enough momentum to break through the interior glass. Mounties say the shooting was not targeted and looks to be accidental. “The bullet possibly came from a nearby wooded area,” RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said. The prospect of a stray bullet flying

across her yard has rattled Ashley. “I was very upset. I’m still very upset,” she told the Times. “What if one of my little dogs had been out there?” And the fact that a bullet ended up in her window means that whoever was holding the gun should have been taking more care and should have been somewhere else. “That’s shooting too close to a residential area,” Ashley said.

‘This is one tough woman’ “I want to see a government with integrity,” she told the Times. “What government is, is a public service. We are supposed to serve the public, and when people get things shoved down their throats, [when politicians] say one thing and do another, it really motivated me to step forward.” MacAhonic was granted a leave of absence from her role at the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce effective Jan. 4 until the Jan. 19 nomination meeting. She also asked for a leave for the election period if she is nominated. When asked Friday, Chamber board president Kevin Gemmell would not comment on whether MacAhonic’s request for an election campaign leave was denied. On Monday, however, the Chamber issued a press release that confirmed it. “If Ms. MacAhonic is successful in her bid for nomination, the board of directors of the Chilliwack Chamber of Com-

merce have asked her to tender her resignation as executive director,” the release said. “At that point, a new executive director will be sought with hopes of filling the position by March 2013.” MacAhonic said she intended to file a letter of reconsideration to the board of directors regarding the election leave. Election 2013 The BC Liberals held a nomination meeting in October for the May 14 provincial election at which time former BC Conservative candidate and UFV criminology professor John Martin was acclaimed for the Chilliwack riding. In Chilliwack-Hope, the Liberals acclaimed Laurie Throness who lost the seat to O’Mahony in the 2012 byelection. O’Mahony will run for the NDP. The BC Conservatives are set to announce candidates for both ridings some time this month.

Chilliwack River Valley senior spent New Year’s Day trying to quiet her nerves after a midday nap was sharply interrupted by the sound of a bullet crashing into the bedroom window. Still a little tired after watching the preceding evening’s celebrations on TV in her Slesse Park rancher, AudreyAnn Ashley, 68, dozed off to sleep with a book just before noon. She wasn’t asleep long, though, when she was sharply awoken by a loud sound. “I thought it was the end of the world,” she said. “It was like a bomb and it was so close. It was so loud.” Ashley pulled back her blinds and found herself looking at the shattered glass of her bedroom sliding door. On the other side of the double-paned window she found a small bullet hole. Shocked, Ashley called her neighbours. Her partner was there and told Ashley, “I heard the shot. It was awful close.” She replied: “Close? Yeah, it came through the window.” Ashley said that, while she had not heard any shooting preceding the incident, her neighbours reported hearing gunfire—apparently from hunters— earlier in the day. “There were people walking around at the time that also heard the shots.” Ashley called the police and an RCMP

Fewer birds, more species

D

ozens of birdwatchers counted more than 100 different bird species in the Chilliwack area last month during the 113th Audubon Christmas Bird Count (CBC). Thirty-two route counters and 15 feeder watchers observed 102 species between Cultus Lake in the south and Harrison Bay in the north on Dec. 15. Another five species were spotted during that week. A total of 41,155 individual birds were counted. Fewer birds, but more species, were seen in 2012, compared to 2011, when 65,978 individuals and 93 species were observed. Five rare birds that had not been spotted

in the last four counts were seen. Those birds were a western tanager, a Lapland longspur, a slaty-back gull, a swamp sparrow and a pine grosbeak. A mountain chickadee and a northern pygmy owl were also spotted during the count week. Birdwatchers again saw few owls this year; and two woodland birds—the pileated woodpecker and ruffed grouse—were not spotted at all during the count. Since the Chilliwack count started 35 years ago in the winter of 1978-79, birdwatchers have found a total of 155 confirmed and five unconfirmed species in the Chilliwack area.

◗ Opinion

Pity the beautiful monsters

I

celebrated the holidays by watching and re-watching some of the old Universal horror classics. Nothing goes down as easy as a big glass of egg nog and a double feature of Frankenstein and Creature From the Black Lagoon. Hey, you keep the holidays in your way and I’ll keep them in mine. The Universal horror series started with some mystery and suspense films, but hit its stride in the early ’30s with Dracula, The Mummy, Frankenstein and Bride of Frankenstein, and The Invisible Man, all within four years of each other. The Wolf Man came out in 1941, and Creature From the Black Lagoon was the last “canon” member of the classic monster club in the 1954. These movies have been reduced to clips and quotes (“It’s alive!” and “I never drink, wine.”) to such a degree that they’ve almost been forgotten as movies. Watch them. They’re cheap as dirt in big DVD packs, and most of them hold up remarkably well. Here are a few capsule reviews if you’re thinking of getting some of these movies for yourself. The Invisible Man: Special effects still look pretty good for a movie made 50 years before Tron, but there are a lot of moments of comic relief that don’t land. Creature From the Black Lagoon: The underwater sequences are magical—they created a villain

MATTHEW CLAXTON

Be Our Guest who, thanks to being portrayed by an Olympic swimmer, could seem graceful and gentle. And then go on an angry rampage. The Wolf Man: Skip it. Seriously, the hero is a creep before he gets bitten by a wolf, and Lon Chaney Jr. is no Lon Chaney Sr. One of the most interesting things about the movie is the fact that we remember it for things that aren’t in there —the full moon is not required for the character to transform. That was added in the sequels. The Mummy: This is another one that suffers from amnesia. As played by Boris Karloff, the mummy is only swaddled in bandages for a single, great scene. After that, he’s a calculating, intelligent, talking villain. Karloff is great. Dracula: Watching Bela Lugosi face off against Edward Van Sloan as Van Helsing is a lot of fun. Everyone else seems to have not got the memo to be awesome. Watch for the armadillos that turn up in Castle Dracula—the Universal lot apparently had pest problems or a very unusual approach to what constituted the fauna of Transylvania.

Bride of Frankenstein: The best of the bunch, by far. Frankenstein director James Whale apparently got more money, and used it. He created a film that’s over the top in terms of impressionistic set design and lighting, borderline hammy acting (not saying on which side of the border) and a weird, gothic storyline. Somehow it all works. The special effects hold up. Dr. Pretorius is a great, deranged villain, and Karloff’s Monster is a damaged antihero who murders but still demands sympathy. And it has multiple appearances by torch and pitchfork wielding mobs. Deranged mobs make everything better! Everyone knows what’s in the movie, but it’s the way Whale put the pieces together that makes it special. A lot has changed technologically since 1935, but one thing that always shows is effort and skill. Everything about Bride of Frankenstein still works, because the people involved clearly cared about getting it right—whether that was Karloff’s elaborate makeup, the weird gizmos in the mad scientist’s lair, or the creepy hiss Elsa Lanchester delivers when she sees her “husband.” The movie still makes you feel a hint of fear, pity for the monsters at its centre, and more than a little wonder. ◗ Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the LangleyAdvance.

nless you spent the last month lounging about on a desert island in the South Pacific without Internet or TV, you’ve probably had your fill of hearing about America’s fiscal cliff. News coverage north of the 49th parallel has been just about as plentiful as south of it, we imagine —probably because we know all too well that what our neighbour does has a great impact on us. So it’s understandable we’d be keeping a close eye on unfolding events. On the other hand, there’s something perversely comforting about knowing it’s not happening in Ottawa—it’s bad news, but at least it’s someone else’s bad news. Ironically, Canadians have their own financial troubles, but we seem to be largely ignoring them altogether. Time and again over this last year, the federal government has issued warnings to Canadians about our personal debt levels. Last month, Statistics Canada announced that debt levels were at their all-time high: for each after-tax dollar we’re bringing home, we’re borrowing more than $1.60. Racking up debt is easy to do, especially in this neck of the woods where mortgages make up a huge portion of debt levels for many people. But it’s not just housing. When it comes right down to it, we all—quite simply— spend too much. Perhaps it’s because it’s so easy to do, with online shopping, credit cards, store cards and personal financing available almost 24 hours a day. Why wait for that home renovation or new couch or family vacation—just charge it now. Perhaps we’ve lost sight, as a nation, of what we want versus what we need—or the ease of getting more credit has blinded us to its pitfalls. Whatever the cause, our own, individual, fiscal cliffs are rapidly looming and, if interest rates go up, too many Canadians will fall off the edge.

So much more to being a Falcon Editor: Do people really understand what it means to get involved in a school? I am a Grade 10 student attending Sardis secondary school. Our mascot is a falcon by the name of Freddie and the student body is therefore referred to as the “Falcons.” Before we were dismissed for the Christmas break, we watched a video showing what it means to be a falcon, in other words, how to get involved at the school. However, it quickly came to the attention of my social studies class that the video was incomplete. All that was shown was some scenes of our senior boys basketball team playing, a studentteacher dodgeball game, Freddie the Falcon doing pushups, and the drumline. Is that really representing the student body? Don’t get me wrong, the basketball team and drumline are great ways to get involved, but there are many others too. The video showed no footage of the art programs that take place in our school or the many clubs that are being held every day at lunch, and after and before school. Other great sports such as volleyball or soccer were also not shown. Also, after watching this video, my teacher informed us of a competition a group of students went to. They organized it themselves, had to search

for a sponsor teacher and did all the work themselves as well. This happened this past October, and the entire class, and I’m pretty sure most of the school, knew nothing about it. After all the work they put into it, don’t they deserve more recognition? Our school is also a French immersion school, which is a pretty big commitment. Those kids do most of their classes in French, which would be extremely difficult to do if English was your first language. Why weren’t any of those kids recognized in the video? Also, I was astonished by the number of girls in the video. The number: 0. This was the most ridiculous part of the whole video because being a girl isn’t like being in a club where the maker of the video would have to go to that club at the time. All they had to do was film the hallway during any given

break between classes and catch a minimum of 50 girls. Another issue I had was the lack of multiculturalism. Our school has many First Nations students, as well as ESL students from other places in the world, such as China. Those students weren’t in the video either. Finally, why was just the drumline shown? The line is a great program, but why weren’t all the music programs shown? There are plenty of musically gifted students in our school that aren’t in the drumline, but are in the orchestral strings class, or the rock band, or the jazz band, so why weren’t they included? The reason why this video really bugged me was all of these reasons put together. The video basically showed that our school focused on the Grade 12 male athlete, and the one musical area among many. That doesn’t represent the student body

whatsoever, so giving the video the title, “What it means to be a Falcon” was not appropriate. It also made me wonder, is that what the public sees as getting involved too? Is that all you can do to get recognition? I sure hope not because the student body at Sardis secondary is much deeper and more interesting than just being on the basketball team or the drumline.

It only takes a single glance Editor: One of the most common distractions a driver faces is a cell phone. Almost everyone has seen someone secretly texting and driving with their phone hidden in their lap, or swerving down the road because they are talking on their phone. In B.C. alone, there are an average of 94 deaths a year associated with distracted driving. Even after the law was issued banning the use of electronic devices while driving, people still choose to take the unnecessary risk of texting while driving.

BCHL notes...

Despite a four-point weekend, Chilliwack’s Luke Esposito finds himself three points back of Langley’s Mario Puskarich in the BCHL scoring race. Puskarich notched two goals and one assist last weekend. Esposito leads all BCHL players with 36 assists. Austin Plevy is third in league scoring. And Chiefs Mitch Gillam is first in shutouts, tied for first in save percentage and wins, and third in goals against average among BCHL starters.

T

he Chilliwack Chiefs split a pair of weekend games against division rivals as they continue to struggle for consistency. The Chiefs beat the Coquitlam Express 5-3 Friday night before falling 6-3 to the Langley Rivermen Saturday at Prospera Centre. The Chiefs—who once sat atop the British Columbia Hockey League standings—are now just 3-5 in their last eight games. They also must now share top spot in the Mainland Division with the Surrey Eagles. The Chiefs can consider themselves fortunate to have taken two points from the Express Friday after being outshot 48-37. John Siemer opened the scoring for Coquitlam just 1:42 into the game. Spencer Graboski replied for the Chiefs three minutes later on the power play. But the Express scored on their own man advantage shortly after to restore the lead. Cue the puck luck. Even though he plays for the Express, Coquitlam defenceman Michael Maciag tied the game for the Chiefs late in the first when he took a cross-crease pass from Graboski and inadvertently sniped the puck past his own goalie. Then, midway through the second period, Mathieu Tibbet’s wrist-shot dump-in from centre ice bamboozled veteran Express netminder Cole Huggins. Luke Esposito extended Chilliwack’s lead on a nice passing play three minutes later.

Ken Goudswaard/TIMES

Chiefs defenceman Ben Israel chips the puck into the Coquitlam Express zone during BCHL action Friday night. Coquitlam drew back to within one early in the third, but Chiefs goalie Mitch Gillam shut the door on the rest of the comeback. He punctuated his 45-save effort by flashing his glove to deny Express star Philip Zielonka on a breakaway. The Chiefs’ luck ran out the following evening against Langley. Power play goals by Evan Campbell and James Robinson helped stake the Rivermen to a 3-0 lead

entering the first intermission. From there the Chiefs were left to play catch up. Tibbet pounced on a juicy rebound early in the second to get Chilliwack on the board. And while Langley restored the three-goal lead, a pair of goals from Austin Plevy just 15 seconds apart gave 2,403 Chiefs fans hope. But, like Coquitlam the night before, Chilliwack couldn’t complete the comeback. Langley add-

ed two more goals, including a late empty-netter, to cap their win. “We’re not pleased right now with the way we’re playing and the mistakes were making, the mindset. Just not pleased even with the win,” Chiefs head coach Harvey Smyl told the Times. “I just don’t think we’re playing like we’re capable and need to get it straightened out.” See CHIEFS, Page 12

Save time When the new 10-lane bridge is complete, it will be twice the size of the old one, which will reduce congestion and save you time – you could cut your drive in half. Less idling also means less money spent at the gas pump, with some drivers saving up to a litre in fuel each day. A series of interchanges and overpass improvements provide faster, safer travel to and from the highway. With less congestion and more reliability, you’ll be able to better predict how long your drive will take and make sure you arrive on time.

The 2008 Chilliwack Storm senior girls basketball team produced four of the valley’s best female players ever.

Teammates 4-ever

Connected by a passion for basketball, their true bond will always be friendship BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

F

rom the start, Rosedale middle school girls basketball coach Jim Adam knew there was something special about Alexa McCarthy, Courtney Bartel and Sarah and Nicole Wierks. From their determination and perseverance to their team-first attitude and willingness to support— and pass to—the less-skilled players, the four young basketball players showed something special. Junior high school coaches would tell Adam they were glad their teams didn’t have to tip off against his middle schoolers. Yet Rosedale was just one such school out of dozens in the Fraser Valley, his players just a few of the hundreds of young basketball players tossing large orange balls at hoops. It would have been presumptuous, at best, for Adam to have thought four of his players would go on to star for one of the best women’s teams in the country. And yet, as 2013 begins, the four Rosedale grads are front and centre as the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades take aim at a national championship. It all starts with Ogmundson McCarthy, Bartel and the Wierks sisters can trace their joint love for basketball back beyond middle school, all the way to the ages of eight and nine, when the four took part in Joe Ogmundson’s Chilliwack Hoops basketball program. (Even then they had a shared history: all four had attended Cheam elemen-

tary school; Bartel and Nicole Wierks first met in kindergarten.) Ogmundson helped the girls discover a passion for sport that would lead them—more than a decade down the road—to the very same spot. The longtime Chilliwack secondary school basketball coach “totally made [basketball] fun and he made it something that you look forward to every day,” McCarthy said. “He totally instilled a love for the game.” So by the time the girls reached middle school, they were already standout players. “Those were all girls who were high achievers,” Adam told the Times. “They worked hard; they put the time and effort into every practice. “As a coach, you can only lead them to the water; they’ve got to decide if they want to drink the water.” That dedication payed immediate dividends when the Wierkses and Bartel helped lead Rosedale to a provincial championship in 2006. (McCarthy, the oldest of the bunch, had moved on to high school at the time.) Soon, the four were back together with Ogmundson, this time at CSS. The girls’ age differences meant that Nicole Wierks and Bartel, who are the same age, often found themselves playing on teams with either McCarthy or Sarah (the youngest), but not both. However, in 2008, the girls were all together and Sarah saw first hand what it takes to be a premier basketball player. “In high school, Nicole and Lex would always try to get me out to go to morning practices and scrim-

mage with the boys,” Sarah said. “I don’t think I’ve seen another player as committed to getting her shots up, getting her workouts in as Lex, and it’s always been motivation.” That year, CSS finished fourth at the provincial championships—one of the best finishes ever for a Chilliwack school. The perfect pipeline to UFV During high school, the four had participated in UFV head coach Al Tuchscherer’s junior Cascades summer basketball program. So when McCarthy graduated in 2008 and committed to play for the Cascades, it set the stage for Bartel and the Wierkses to follow. “Once Alexa signed, it was almost like, ‘OK, that’s an option,’” Bartel said. Now, midway through the 2012-13 season, the Cascades are currently the second-ranked women’s basketball team in the nation, and the CSS clan are core components. The Wierks sisters are first and second on the team in scoring and rebounding; Bartel averages nine points a game while playing the fifth-most minutes; and before McCarthy went down with a wrist injury in late-November, she had started six of seven games and was

second on the team in assists. More than a decade since they first started shooting hoops together, the women say their long history together has contributed to their present success on the court. “Understanding each other on a whole other level totally shapes our team,” Nicole Wierks said. Over the years, those bonds have grown as demanded by the ups and downs of the sport. For instance, Sarah Wierks says she forged a special connection with Bartel that was fostered during high school while Nicole was injured. “ W e know each other like the back of ourhands,” S a r a h Wierks said. “We just have that instinct.” Bartel agreed: “It’s really fun. It almost feels that we can almost sense where each other are.” Four players, of course, don’t make a complete team. The Cascades also boast a foursome who attended WJ Mouat in Abbotsford, along with players from a variety of other Fraser Valley schools (including Kayli Sartori, who grew up in the Columbia Valley but went to school in Abbotsford). Despite that, Tuchscherer hasn’t see factions developing that could otherwise split a team. “When you have a group that’s

“We know each other like the back of our hands.We just have that instinct.”

that tight, there’s always the challenge of integrating players into that group, but they make that pretty easy,” Tuchscherer said of the Chilliwack core. “It’s not like they’re super cliquey.” Indeed, Tuchscherer says it’s better to have groups of old friends on the team who can brush off disagreements that might cause harsh feelings among less familiar teammates. NicoleWierks says she finds it hard to conceive of a life without basketball and her teammates and says the close bond has helped the women find success. “In the off-season, us girls get together, we’re working out together, we’re going to the gym together, we’re getting shots up together, and I totally see that, if I wasn’t a part of a team like this, I wouldn’t be able to do that kind of thing,” she said. “It’s kind of weird to think of how different my downtime would be. Even on the weekends I get to see the girls, we hang out, we’re all friends.” She continued: “A lot of us were friends before we got serious about the sport, but the fact that we all loved it and we all stuck together . . . totally has everything to do with where we are now.” Even with that bond, though, the Chilliwack women didn’t find instant success with the Cascades. It’s taken several years for UFV to become the juggernaut they are now. “We’ve finally learned how to win now and how to be a top team,” Bartel said. But while Tuchscherer says they talk more about process than results, Sarah was less coy: See FOUR, Page 16

Sports/Letters FOUR, from page 15 “Our goal,” she said, “is to bring home the national championship.” That brings with it new challenges every week as lower-ranked squads try to upend one of the best teams in the nation. “It kind of feels like there’s a target on our backs,” Bartel said. “It’s more pressure, but I think we’ve finally learned how to deal with that pressure.” But those who have watched four Chilliwack girls—now women—develop and grow into as

Confidence players have confidence in their former protegés. Ogmundson, their old coach, acknowledged that “it’s pretty crazy to see four girls from Chilliwack be number two in the country.” But, he said, “I’m not surprised a bit . . . based on the trajectory they were on when they were eight or nine years old. “Their work effort and their coachability and their willingness to learn and their desire to compete are just shining through.”

LETTERS, from page 9 that texting while driving has a similar effect as drinking and driving. We as human beings face so many dangers throughout our day, and yet we are bringing one more risk into the picture without even thinking. Research shows one quarter of crashes are due to driver distraction, and texting while driving is the third leading cause of fatal car crashes. There are many different solutions to these problems. The simplest and most effective solution is to turn off your cell phone before

In less than four months I am going to be learning how to drive and my phone will be turned off every time I get into a car to drive. The last thing I want is to injure myself or someone else because I had the urge to quickly reply to a text message. You can also inform your family and friends of these dangers, so they don’t face a deadly car acci-
