Family shaken in home invasion

Aug. 17, 1928 - Jan. 11, 2013

Wrong house was targeted

Chilliwack loses a legend as former councillor passes



Chilliwack family is recovering after two armed men stormed into their house Saturday evening and demanded money. Just after 11 p.m., the men—one armed with a handgun, the other with a machete-like knife—kicked open the door of a house in the 44000 block of Bayshore Drive. According to Mike Kha, who lives with his wife and two children in a downstairs basement suite in the home and whose parents and brother live on the house’s top floor, the men rushed upstairs and ordered the three adults there to lie flat on the ground. They then began asking about suitcases and “paper”—or cash. “They had a phone on them and were yelling into it saying they got the wrong house,” he said of the thieves. Kha and his wife Theresa were in Vancouver at the time of the home invasion. But their children—aged four and six—were downstairs and being cared for by a babysitter. Kha said a barking dog alerted the thieves to the presence of more people in the basement. The thieves headed downstairs, apprehended the babysitter and smashed his phone. Fortunately, he was able to talk the home invaders into allowing the children to remain in their rooms, Kha said. Even though the homeowners didn’t have any suitcases of See INVASION, Page 5

BY PAUL J. HENDERSON Chilliwack’s “Grand Lady” has passed. Retired city councillor Dorothy Kostrzewa died on Friday at the age of 84. The tributes to the beloved local personality poured out online and through social media over the weekend. “Dorothy was a mentor and friend to me and so many others,” Mayor Sharon Gaetz said on a Facebook page she created entitled “Memories of Dorothy Kostrzewa.” “Sending love to her children Richard and Margaret and Karen and Len and your EB IRST families. Rest in Peace Grand Lady. You are First reported on forever loved.” Former mayor Clint Hames also recounted his 18 years working on council with Kostrzewa. “Those that worked closely with her were truly fortunate,” Hames wrote on Facebook. “She was a joy and an inspiration. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family.” The feeling at city hall was one of real sadness, according to Gaetz. “Walk through city hall and people are just devastated,” she told the Times Monday. A book of condolences has been set up in the entrance to city hall, and the city will fly flags at half mast for a week. Kostrzewa was born Dorothy Chung in Chilliwack on Aug. 17, 1928. She was the

hile young first-time offenders are often seen as ideally suited for participation in restorative justice programs, a recent University of the Fraser Valley study of Chilliwack shoplifters suggests the process might be even more beneficial for those with prior criminal histories. UFV teamed with the Chilliwack RCMP and the Chilliwack Restorative Justice and Youth Advocacy Association (CRJYAA) to analyze the case histories of 308 people caught shoplifting in Chilliwack between 2007 and 2009. The study showed that participants in the restorative justice program were less likely to be caught shoplifting again over the next two years than shoplifters not in the program—including both those who were charged criminally and those who were nor charged. (The study did note that the results could Jan. 8 - Redemption be skewed by Jan. 15 - Success the fact that the decision Jan. 22 - Challenges to charge a person or refer him or her to restorative justice is not random). The study—authored jointly by RCMP Supt. Keith Robinson, UFV Criminologist Darryl Plecas, UFV researcher Colette Squires and CRJYAA executive director Kim McLandress—produced some surprising results. It suggested, for instance, that restorative justice didn’t reduce recidivism rates among firsttime youth offenders but it did have an impact on those with a prior criminal history. While the sample size was small, the 21 adults and youth with prior histories who participated in restorative justice were less likely to have been caught shoplifiting again than those not enrolled in the program. They were also less likely to have been caught committing other crimes. Even those restorative justice participants who returned to crime did so less often and after more time had elapsed from their original offence than those not in the program. The authors concluded that “Given these research outcomes, it would be advisable for police, Crown, and the public to consider restorative justice as a first option for shoplifting to reduce court costs, court delays, and to improve recidivism rates.”

Chilliwack Restorative Justice and Youth Advocacy Association executive director Kim McLandress was one of four authors of a study looking at restorative justice’s effectiveness at reducing recidivism. And they advised retail store managers to take heed of the program’s successes. “No doubt many among them think they are taking the best action by having a significant percentage of offenders handled through the criminal charge process,” the authors write. “The results of this report would suggest that it is hardly the best action—either for their stores or for community safety at large.” McLandress, the executive director at CRJYAA, speculated the program might be especially effective for those with past histories because it provides more of a connection between a person’s crime and punishment “I think going through this system something finally worked and connected with them, as opposed to the other forms that they may have

gone through, [where] there’s no accountability or no apology and no way to repair the damage done to themselves or the victim,” McLandress said. “In this case they get all of that and I think that’s the key to them not reoffending again.” As for the apparent lack of success lessening the chances that first-time offenders will return to shoplifting, McLandress speculated that many such people didn’t quite realize how fortunate they were. “A lot of them are quite young and I don’t know if they fully understood the opportunity they were given,” she said. Thanks to the study the First West Foundation has provided funding for UFV and the CRJYAA to team together to develop a tool to better assess restorative justice clients at the start and end of their participation in the program.



Kostrzewa will receive Diamond Jubilee Medal posthumously DOROTHY, from page 1 youngest of eight children in the Chung family. At the age of five, Kostrzewa was asleep in her bed when fire destroyed her family’s home and the surrounding buildings. She was able to escape with only a doll, and she and her family huddled under the white, wooden bridge on Yale Road. The fire was called accidental although there had been two prior attempts to destroy Chilliwack’s Chinatown, and this one was successful. But while most of the Chinese community fled the Fraser Valley for Vancouver, the Chungs stayed and thrived. Kostrzewa graduated high school in 1947, and during the flood of 1948, she famously built a raft with her brothers and dove through muddy waters for vegetables. After high school, she went to the Duffus School of Commerce in Vancouver to study accounting. In 1949, she started a 20-year career as an accountant at Chilliwack General Hospital, which ended in 1969 when, with the support of many doctors at the hospital and the mandate to increase recreation, she ran for city council. With that win she became the first Chinese-Canadian woman elected to public office in Canada. She served 31 years in municipal politics alongside seven mayors, finally stepping down in 2008. In 2006, she was named by the Vancouver Sun as one of the 100 Chinese-Canadians making a difference in B.C. Kostrzewa was the driving force behind the Piper Richardson statue at what is now the Chilliwack Museum. Recreation was her passion and she pushed for the construction of new facilities. In 2008, she told the Times there were only two ball diamonds in town when she first got on council, and “now look at how many we have.” Kostrzewa was named Chilliwack’s Sportsman of the Year, a Paul Harris Fellow by the Chilliwack Rotary Club, Chilliwack’s Woman of the Year, a member of the Order of Chilliwack and one of Chilliwack’s Community Sports Heroes. On Monday, Chilliwack-Hope MLA Gwen O’Mahony’s office said Kostrzewa was to be presented with a Diamond Jubilee Medal. She will be given the medal posthumously at a ceremony in the first week of February.

Chilliwack-Hope MLA Gwen O’Mahony’s office said Monday that Dorothy Kostrzewa was to be awarded the Diamond Jubilee Medal. She will be given the honour posthumously in February.

Despite all her acclaim, anyone who knew Kostrzewa could speak to her humility. In 2008, when given the suggestion that the then under construction cultural centre should be named after her, Kostrzewa bristled in her inimitable, grandmotherly way. “No way!” she said. “The Chilliwack Cultural Centre, this is my wish.” On the Facebook page dedicated to her memory, local musician Trevor McDonald has already suggested the theatre in the cultural centre should be named for Kostrzewa. Gaetz said that city council will discuss an appropriate way to honour the longtime councillor. About 250 of Kostrzewa’s friends, relatives, colleagues, admirers and acquaintances filled Evergreen Hall in May 2008 for a surprise retirement party. After this event, her humility was evident when asked about her status as the first Chinese-Canadian woman elected to political office in Canada. “Those things don’t mean a damn thing to me,” she said. “Even at the party I felt uncomfortable.” Gaetz said Kostrzewa was gentle, didn’t like whiners and treated everyone the same no matter their status or personality. “She had such humility,” Gaetz said. “Every politician should aspire to such humility.”

Judge not happy with shoddy police work BY TYLER OLSEN


iting a flawed police investigation, a Chilliwack judge has thrown out much of the Crown’s evidence against a man charged with hitting a convenience store employee while driving drunk. William Fraser Alexander Fulton, 70, is standing trial on charges of impaired driving causing bodily harm and causing an accident resulting in bodily harm. On Sept. 1, 2010, an employee of a Yale Road 7/11 was standing outside the building, talking on his phone. He testified that he heard a large roar just before being struck by what turned out to be Fulton’s Oldsmoble Aurora. The victim suffered soft tissue injuries and was taken to hospital. He was released but the court heard that he has not yet fully recovered from his injuries. Fulton’s car stopped immediately following the collision and both airbags deployed. Const. Patrick Maisonneuve testified in court that, upon arriving on the scene, he observed powder from the airbags floating around the apparently unconscious driver just after the accident. A paramedic who treated Fulton—who was drifting in and out of consciousness— smelled alcohol on the driver’s breath. The trial is still continuing, judge Russell MacKay ruled that neither statements Fulton made to Const. Dave Lastucka following the collision nor a sample of Fulton’s blood, INVASION, from page 1 money lying around the house, the robbers did make off with thousands of dollars worth of high-end computers, phones and camera equipment used by Kha’s wife, a professional photographer. But although they left with a substantial haul, the bungling thieves clearly weren’t experts. One of the men, Kha said, “was trying to put his hands around our babysitter’s neck and his pants kept falling down.” Kha—the president of the Unsworth elementary school parents advisory council—believes the thieves likely confused his house for another just down the street. While he said the neighbourhood is peaceful and nice—several RCMP officers are residents—Kha says one house “sticks out like a sore thumb.” The occupants of that house drive the same type of vehicle as the Kha family.

are admissable as evidence because of police error. MacKay noted that Lastucka’s notes from the day are “woefully incomplete.” In particular, he said that it is not clear whether information collected by the officer came from Fulton’s statements or from the paramedic on scene. “It is entirely unclear where and when some of the comments were made,” MacKay said. “Some may have been said by someone else.” MacKay heard testimony that Fulton asked for a lawyer while in the ambulance with the officer and paramedic, immediately after being told that he was under suspicion. But MacKay noted that the officer made no attempt to connect Fulton with a lawyer while he was being detained. “Nothing beyond lip service was done to ensure his Section 10 rights were observed,” MacKay said. MacKay also ruled that the production order that allowed police to seize samples taken of Fulton’s blood was also not valid. Fulton also vigorously resisted efforts to have blood samples taken while being treated at Chilliwack General Hospital. A production order to obtain a blood sample had been granted by a justice of the peace. But MacKay ruled that, having ruled out Fulton’s statements to police, there was insufficient evidence for the order to have been granted.

Four injured in apartment fire


hilliwack firefighters were kept busy Thursday with a pair of residential fires, including one that sent four seniors to hospital. Four elderly residents were taken to Chilliwack General Hospital and treated for smoke inhalation after fire broke out in a three-storey apartment building in the 8900 block of Edward Street just after noon on Thursday. Assistant fire chief Ian Josephson said the blaze occurred in the kitchen of a ground-floor suite. By the time firefighters arrived, an alarm had alerted the building’s occupants, who were

already in the process of evacuating. Thick black smoke clogged the hallway of the ground-floor hallway, but firefighters were quickly able to extinguish the kitchen fire. “There is extensive fire damage to the kitchen area, with considerable smoke damage to the remainder of the one suite and hallway,” Josephson said in a press release. Fire investigators say the blaze may have been caused by cigarettes discarded in a plastic bucket. They are reminding the public to always extinguish smoking materials in deep, non-

combustible ashtrays. Butts should be wet before being placed in the garbage. Earlier that day, just before 8 a.m., firefighters responded to a fire in the 6000 block of Vedder Road. They arrived to find smoke coming from a single-wide mobile home. Crews entered the building and snuffed out a fire in the kitchen area of the trailer. The home’s owner was not home when the fire began. Fire damage was limited to the kitchen, but the rest of the trailer sustained extensive smoke damage.

More oil could flow locally



inder Morgan’s proposal to twin its Trans Mountain oil sands pipeline from Alberta to Burnaby through Chilliwack just got a lot bigger. The company announced Thursday that an increased demand from customers led to a 20 per cent increase in the proposed expansion capacity from 750,000 barrels per day (bpd) to 890,000 bpd. The current capacity of the 60-yearold, 1,150-kilometre pipeline that runs from Edmonton to Burnaby is 300,000 bpd. The cost of the project also rises from $4.1 billion to $5.4 billion. “We continue to grow and this is a very exciting day for us and we think an exciting day for the industry and Canadians,” Kinder Morgan Canada president Ian Anderson said. The original expansion project announced early in 2012 called for a doubling of capacity to 600,000 bpd. That quickly rose to 850,000 bpd but was later downgraded to 750,000 bpd. The expanded plan means an increase in the size of the pipe from 30 inches to

36 inches, and there will be 34 oil tankers filled per month at the Burnaby terminal, up from 25. Through Chilliwack, the pipeline runs under farmers’ fields, residential neighbouhoods in Sardis, Watson elementary’s school yard, Kinkora Golf Course and the Vedder River. In a conference call Thursday, Anderson said he didn’t want to speculate if the project could expand even further if Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline proposal was withdrawn down the road. “We don’t have any plans currently for any change in project scope,” Anderson said. Sheila Muxlow of the local anti-pipeline group PIPE UP said Thursday that the announcement spurred a renewed call out to those opposed to oil sands pipelines. “This is all the more reason for us to be advancing our work and strategy to stop the building of this new tar sands pipeline,” Muxlow said in an email. The increase announced Thursday was the result of firm customer commitments increasing from 508,000 bpd to 708,000 bpd. “ We are ver y pleased with the response from our customers,” Ander-

son said. In a press release, the company took the somewhat unusual step of listing the 13 companies that have signed long-term contracts for the expanded pipeline. They include BP Canada Energy Trading Company, Canadian Natural Resources, Canadian Oil Sands Limited, Cenovus Energy Inc., Devon Canada Corporation, Husky Energy Marketing Inc., Imperial Oil Limited, Nexen Marketing Inc., Statoil Canada Ltd., Suncor Energy Marketing Inc., Suncor Energy Products Partnership, Tesoro Refining & Marketing Company and Total E&P Canada Ltd. Trans Mountain expects to file a facilities application with the National Energy Board (NEB) in late 2013, for authorization to build and operate the necessary facilities for the proposed expansion. That application will include environmental, socio-economic and Aboriginal engagement, landowner and public consultation and engineering components. A comprehensive regulatory and public review process will also be initiated. If approved, the project would be operational by 2017.

What monster warning system?


ello! Welcome to the new Port Mann Bridge! While this marvel of engineering can now whisk you to either side of the Fraser River in record time, there are a few safety issues that drivers and transit users should be aware of before crossing!

Ice, fog, and snow In case of weather below freezing, do not attempt to cross the Port Mann Bridge. Our design team looked on Wikipedia and found that the median temperature for December in Metro Vancouver was well above freezing. Thus, they did not consider whether ice bombs would spontaneously launch from the cables, or if fog and cold would turn the bridge deck into the world’s first perfectly frictionless surface. Extreme rain Our engineers did model extreme rainfall events. The models showed that the central pillars of the cable towers will remain perfectly stable if their outer coating is undisturbed. Under a layer of concrete, the towers are made mostly of sugar cubes, which was determined to be the most inexpensive loadbearing material available. As long as the outer crust remains intact, however, the bridge will retain its structural integrity and should not collapse into a giant pile of sucrose. The northern concrete-drilling wood-


Be Our Guest pecker We have installed two fake owls on top of the pillars to scare these creatures away. The fact that they are fond of sugar has been taken into account. There is no need for alarm about any existing holes. Extreme heat In addition to cold, our engineers did not worry about heat waves, as those only happen about one year in three. During extreme heat events, the bridge surface may or may not buckle, melt, slide off, or transform into a viscous pool of lava. If you find your car sinking into the tarry surface, climb onto your roof and wait for the rescue helicopters. If your car sinks all the way through the molten bridge deck, hold your breath, and as your car plummets towards the Fraser River, deploy your in-car flotation devices. The heat may also melt the outer layers of the towers, see RAIN. Giant fire-breathing lizards There is no evidence, none whatsoever, that the construction of the new Port Mann Bridge dis-

turbed the nesting site of Godzilla. Nor is there anything to support the contention that Mothra, King Ghidorah, or Rodan have developed a grudge against the tower project. Any rumours to the effect that the Mysterians are plotting to send their giant robot Moguera to demolish the bridge, unless their demands of world domination are met, are likewise groundless. The Emergency Monster Warning System was installed on the bridge for purely scientific research purposes. Ancient Norse Gods/Giants It is possible that the bridge and its related off-and on-ramps may form a Norse rune that magically summons the fire giant Surt, marking the Ragnarrok, or downfall of the gods. If so, motorists can expect to see Thor fighting the world-girdling serpent Jormungandr, or Odin being devoured by the giant wolf Fenrir. If the world actually ends, drivers will get a 15 per cent discount on their Treo tolling bill for the preceding 30 days. If the end of the world is averted thanks to a group of plucky—but unlikely—heroes putting aside their differences to locate and use a magical talisman and/or book to forestall the inevitable doom of man, there will be no discount. ◗ Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the Langley Advance.

f Dorothy Kostrzewa could see the tributes that poured out with the news of her passing this weekend, she would almost certainly be humbled. She would also probably tell everyone to get over it and not to shed any more tears. Kostrzewa was a rare combination of incredible sweetness and unwavering toughness. As a child in 1934, she survived the burning down—probably intentional—of her home and the destruction of all of Chilliwack’s Chinatown. She also lived through the great flood of 1948. She endured and thrived in a community that, at first, seemed to not want her, and one that later seemed it might end up under water anyway. She had a beautiful family, had a good career and went on to become the first woman of Chinese descent elected to political office in Canada. That bears recognition even if she thought it didn’t. The reason she didn’t want any acclaim is because Dorothy Kostrzewa entered politics for the most important reason of all: community. It sounds cliché, but it’s true. She cared immensely about Chilliwack and making her hometown a better place to live. With utter selflessness, she entered municipal affairs to see what she could do to promote recreation and the arts. Kostrzewa didn’t ask for a lot in her time on city council but if she wanted something, watch out, she was hard to stop. The Piper Richardson statue is at least partly her doing. Building a cultural centre was a 30-year passion. Adding community sports fields was a lifelong one. She once said that if you don’t laugh, you’ll cry. And she didn’t like crying. Chilliwack is worse off now that she’s not with us but we are all better for having known her. Shake off the tears now that she’s gone. Let’s smile about what she left behind.

Chamber should be encouraging MacAhonic

Editor: Re: Patti MacAhonic’s forced resignation from her position as executive director of the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce. Utter disbelief was my first reaction. Her employer, the Chilliwack Chamber of Commerce, instead of encouraging citizens to participate in community activities (women included) has made Patti choose to resign in order to exercise her right to participate in the May provincial election and prepare for the many tasks that she would need to perform in readiness (requesting a leave of absence would be needed) should she win the nomination. I love the dictionary—for instance, we all like to believe in democracy (explained as equality of rights, opportunity and treatment). By the way, that reminds me of this humour: Q: What is the definition of apathy? A: I don’t know and I don’t care. It is my opinion that we should laud people that come forward to give their time, effort and finances, not promote indifference because others put up roadblocks to discourage them. A very serious blockade, indeed when your way of earning a living is removed. “The Chamber is a non-sectarian and apolitical organization working on behalf of its mem-

Correct? I also like the word apolitical which has the opposite meaning of political. So, if this decision to axe Patti was not political, I do like the word “nefarious.” It sounds so mysterious but I may be misusing the word on this occasion. We don’t get to vote for Chamber members, so the only reaction I can imagine is shop out of town—take away Chamber support. Of course we could let our ballots do the talking, given the opportunity.

Tree trimming was a butcher job Editor: I just had to comment on the butcher job done to the trees lining College Street and on the property of Chilliwack Central school. I can understand the need for “trimming” trees that begin to grow into hydro and telephone wires; however, the job done on these trees appears to have been a complete butcher job with no thought whatsoever as to the trees aesthetic value or health. Beautiful trees add so much to the beauty of our community. What a sad thing that the City of Chilliwack obviously doesn’t think this way. All one has to do is take a look at the once beautiful tree

standing on the corner of Mellard and Young with a massive quarter chunk of the tree now missing. Sad. Colleen Boles Chilliwack

Return purse and no questions asked Editor: I am writing this to you because I saw that someone wrote to you when their friend’s bright yellow scooter was taken from Timmy’s. So I plead to you to help me. On Dec. 13 I had my place robbed (and I did report it to the RCMP). We had some stupid, or should I say some weird, things taken. Some, not all, of our pool balls, two pool cues, a wooden baseball bat and a pewter butter dish in the shape of a curling stone with “Melchers 1974” engraved onto it (it is a family heirloom, handed down to my hubby from his dad who has since passed away). But the one thing that is the most important thing that was stolen was my purse, with all my ID and some of my son’s (who turns 19 this month and needs it). I also had all my Christmas money in it too, so this Christmas there were literally nothing under the tree nor in the stockings, so thank-you for ruining our Christmas. I also had my cheque book in my

Gather in solidarity for Idle No More


he Idle No More movement continued over the weekend with events held across Canada and here in Chilliwack. On Sunday, a few hundred protesters gathered at the Shell gas station at Eagle Landing before blocking northbound traffic and marching to the Home Depot. On Friday, about 60 First Nations people and supporters gathered at the Coqualeetza site on the Sto:lo Nation property for a prayer gathering. That event, organized by Joanne Hugh and Wenona Victor, was held in conjunction with a national day of action that included protests and rallies across the country on

purse and have since cancelled all my cheques and someone has tried but failed to cash one of them. The RCMP are now looking into it. I have also called Equifax and reported my ID stolen. My purse is black leather with two straps with four buckles and medium in size, with a black leather wallet inside and some important papers—only important to me. All I ask is to have everything returned. You can put them on my porch (I am sure you know where I live as you broke into my place). No questions asked, just leave them on the porch. I write this because we do not drink or use drugs, just a lower middle-class family struggling like everyone else out there and I would love my ID back as I cannot afford to replace them right now.

Women drum and sing at an Idle No More prayer gathering at the Coqualeetza site at Sto:lo Nation on Friday. Jan. 11. Victor said they gathered “in solidarity with all of our indigenous brothers and sisters across Turtle Island.” Since starting at the end of 2012, the Idle No More movement has continued with protests, blockades, flash mobs and prayer circles. The intent, according to the grassroots organizers, is to protest federal government legislation they say violates aboriginal rights. Ernie Victor of the Cheam band spoke Friday, encouraging the assembled group to continue with the movement.

“This is not the time for us to feel this is a long journey,” Victor said. “This is only the beginning.” Hugh said the Coqualeetza site was chosen for the unity gathering because it was a place that helped bring “our people together in the ‘70s through the red power movement.” The University of the Fraser Valley (UFV ) will host an Idle No More educational forum on Jan. 17 from 1 to 3:30 p.m. at the Aboriginal Gathering Place at the Canada Education Park campus in Chilliwack. Speakers will include: Joanne Gutierrez (Xwiyolemot, Sto:lo/

Cree woman) who will talk about indigenous government and Idle No More capacity building; Sakej Warden (Master of Indigenous Government degree from University of Victoria; Member of Warrior Societies Alliance) who will talk about indigenous nationhood; Hamish Telford (UFV political science instructor) who will talk about omnibus bills and Bill C-45; and Robert Harding (UFV social work instructor) who will talk about media representation of the Idle No More movement and the context of the representation of aboriginal peoples and issues in the media.

gassiz Mounties are looking for help in solving a significant theft at a popular Harrison Hot Springs campground. Mounties say a steel container at Hicks Lake campground was broken into sometime between Dec. 9 and Jan. 9. A large Cummins generator and a 150-gallon Tidy Tank were stolen. RCMP spokesperson Const. Tracy Wolbeck said the generator is worth between $5,000 and $7,000. She said whoever stole the equipment would have required a large truck. The generator is used to power a water system at the campsite. “Although there could be a lengthy time delay between the theft and realizing the theft occurred, we are hoping that someone has information,” Wolbeck said. - Staff

BCHL notes...

The BCHL’s trade deadline featured several big deals. The Mainland Division-leading Surrey Eagles acquired Adam Tambellini from the Vernon Vipers. Tambellini, who is fourth in league scoring, found the net twice Sunday in his debut for the Eagles.The Coquitlam Express also dealt John Siemer, who is third in league scoring, to the Penticton Vees. In total, 11 transactions were made on the BCHL’s Jan. 10 deadline.

Big trade, big brawl, 2 wins Chilliwack Cowichan Victoria Chilliwack Chilliwack Prince George

2 1 2 1 3 2



successful debut for the Chilliwack Chiefs’ newest player this weekend was overshadowed by an ugly semi-brawl at the end of Saturday’s game against the Victoria Grizzlies. Playing three games in as many days, the Chiefs won twice. And Philip Zielonka, whom the team acquired from the Coquitlam Express Thursday just before the trade deadline, scored key powerplay goals in both victories. Chilliwack downed the Prince George Spruce Kings 3-2 at Prospera Centre before heading to Vancouver Island, where they lost 2-1 to the Grizzlies Saturday and beat the Cowichan Capitals 2-1 Sunday. But while Chiefs head coach Harvey Smyl says he’s moved on from a large scrum at the end of Saturday’s game, the British Columbia Hockey League continues to review video of the incident. With the final horn having blown on a combative game that had already seen two fights and Grizzlies coach Bill Bestwick ejected, Chiefs forward Trevor Hills clashed with a pair of Grizzlies near centre ice. With both teams filing onto the ice at the conclusion of the game, the incident escalated and resulted in several skirmishes as punches were thrown and one incident led to another.

Tyler Olsen/TIMES

Surrounded by six Prince George Spruce Kings, Chiefs forward Luke Esposito battles for the puck Friday night. Meanwhile, the Chiefs’ coaching staff exchanged words—and at one point a stick—with members of the Grizzlies crew. Asked Monday about the conversation between the benches, Smyl simply described it as “a great debate” to the Times. And he said that “for me it’s over.” The league is reviewing the video tape of the end-of-game shenanigans, but media services director Brent Mutis says that, because of board meetings this week, decisions on discipline may not be handed down until Thursday. Smyl said that would be problematic, as his team is scheduled to head to Prince George on Thursday and would need time to find affiliate player replacements for any suspended skaters. “If we don’t know by then, that’s troubling,” he said.

As for the actual games, Smyl felt his team, while making some progress, still has a ways to go to reclaim the form shown in November. The Chiefs were fortunate to escape Friday’s game with two points. Spencer Graboski opened the scoring on the power play. But the Spruce Kings tied the game in the second, then took the lead in the third on a shorthanded Coltyn Hansen goal. But with Chiefs goaltender Mitch Gillam on the bench and a Spruce King in the penalty box, Graboski tied the game with just 52 seconds left to send it to overtime. There, Zielonka made his presence felt, scoring on another power play to claim the win for his new team. The Chiefs continue to struggle creating offence five-on-five, and

those troubles caught up with them in Victoria. It took 57 minutes for Austin Plevy to score the Chiefs’ only goal. By then it was too late, with the Grizzlies having already beaten Gillam twice. On Sunday against the Cowichan Capitals, Zielonka opened the scoring—on the power play—in the second period. Jaret Babych added to the Chiefs’ lead in the third. Josh Halpenny, in a rare start in place of Gillam, was solid in net. Although his shutout was broken with 10 minutes to go, Halpenny’s 35 saves were enough to allow the Chiefs to skate away with a 2-1 win. Smyl, though, is concerned with the lack of offence when his team is playing at even strength. “Five-on-five, we’re not getting See CHIEFS, Page 15

Looking to earn spot at Scotties BY TYLER OLSEN


ust 10 years after she first hit the pebbled ice with a pack of fellow Learn to Curl newbies, Chilliwack’s Kim McLandress is competing for a spot in the legendary Scotties Tournament of Hearts McLandress is in Cloverdale this week throwing stones for Simone Brosseau’s Juan de Fuca Curling Club rink at the Scotties BC Women’s Curling Championship. It’s a big stage for any curler and by far the largest in McLandress’s relatively young career. After all, it was only Kim McLandress 10 years ago when McLandress first walked through the doors of the Chilliwack Curling Club.

McLandress throwing second stone for Juan de Fuca Curling Club rink

McLandress was 22, going to university, living in a new city and looking for a way to meet new people. She had only ever curled in high school physical education classes. A natural athlete, McLandress quickly took to the sport. Now, a decade later, she is curling three times a week and recently hooked up with Brosseau’s rink. In December, with former world champion Pat Sanders skipping in Brosseau’s absence and McLandress throwing second, the rink went 3-1 at a qualifier and earned a place in this week’s provincial championship. She’s looking forward to the event, even though she admits she will likely be nervous. “It’s super-exciting,” she said. “I think it will be such a great experience. The

three or four other people I’m curling with are amazing; they’ve been around the sport a lot longer than me so it’s an experience for me to be able to learn from them.” McLandress said that while her team, as a relatively new rink, might not be expected to do much, there’s no reason they can’t win. “I think it’s wide open,” she said. “We’ll probably be under the radar because we are sort of a new team . . . but I think it’s anybody’s game.” The Scotties BC Women’s Curling Championships began Monday and run until next Sunday. Results will be posted online, as they happen, at www. Spectators are also welcomed at the Cloverdale Curling Club.

Healthy ways to speed up your metabolism


ieters are often aware of metabolism and its effect on an individual’s weight.Metabolism is a process that serves a host of important functions,including converting food and drink into energy and using energy to construct certain components of cells. For the perpetual dieter,metabolism can be a natural-born enemy,a process that simply isn’t fast enough for dieters to lose weight.Even more frustrating,a person’s metabolism can hinge on genetics and gender.People may inherit a speedy or slow metabolism.Gender plays a large role considering men have a tendency to burn more calories than women,even while resting. But gaining a faster metabolism isn’t just for men or those who inherited a speedier metabolism at birth. In fact,there are several healthy ways to speed up metabolism. ◗ Pack on some muscle. People with more muscle tend to have a higher resting metabolic rate.That’s because muscle burns more calories than fat.According to the American Council on Exercise,each pound of fat burns just two calories per day,while various estimates suggest each pound of muscle burns between 35 to 50 calories per day.Those figures might seem insignificant,but they add up over time and someone with significant muscle can burn considerably more calories than someone without. ◗ Emphasize intensity.Daily exercise is great,but

high-intensity daily exercise will prove more effective at speeding up your metabolism.Low- or moderateintensity workouts don’t pack the same punch as highintensity workouts,which produce a longer increase in resting metabolic rate. ◗ Embrace grazing. Grazing is a dietary philosophy in which individuals eat five to six smaller meals every three to four hours instead of three large meals each day.Eating this way helps keep your metabolism going,and the result is you will burn more calories throughout the day than you would if you ate a more traditional diet.Of course,what you eat when grazing is important,too.Choose low-fat,high-nutrient foods, and snack on fruits and vegetables instead of more popular snacks like potato chips. ◗ Eat more protein. Protein can serve many purposes for people trying to lose weight.Protein has a tendency to make you feel full when you eat it,reducing the likelihood that you will overeat.In addition,the body burns more calories when digesting protein than it does while digesting fats or carbohydrates.. ◗ Stay hydrated.Your metabolism will likely slow down if you allow yourself to get dehydrated.When the body does not have enough water,several of its functions,including its ability to burn calories,slow down.Muscles are roughly 70 per cent water,so if they are not fully hydrated they cannot generate energy, affecting your metabolism.In addition,the body is not as effective at using fat as fuel when it is dehydrated.

Make snacking healthy


nacking often elicits mixed reviews. Some health plans say that it is important to eat several small meals or snacks during the day to keep metabolism rates in check. Other information states that snacks can be a person’s undoing, causing unnecessary weight gain —especially when snacking is frequent. These mixed messages can be a little confusing. The National Health and Nutrition Survey supports snacking.The survey found that people who eat snacks in addition to three meals a day had higher levels of nutrients in their diets. But not all snacks are a good idea. Consuming a fattening bag of potato chips is an unhealthy approach to snacking. However, a piece of dark chocolate or a handful of nuts can add essential nutrients to a person’s diet. Many different snacks make healthy additions to a person’s diet.Two to three snacks a day may be all that’s needed to help keep a person feeling satiated and less likely to overeat at meals. Here are some healthy snack ideas. ◗ Olives: A handful of olives can quench a salty craving and provide essential fatty acids that may help to improve heart health. ◗ Hummus: Hummus is made from chickpeas, which are naturally low in fat and high in fiber.This dip will keep you feeling full. ◗ Edamame: These are a variety of soybeans that are sweeter, larger and more easily digested than other soybeans.They are a natural source of antioxidants and isoflavones.

We are now accepting applications for the winter session

Hospice Volunteer Training January 28-February 29 Tuesday/Thursday eve 6:00-9:00 pm “...we support individuals and families during the dying and grieving process”


Location: Chilliwack Hospice Society Rotary Centre 45360 Hodgins Avenue, Chilliwack (across from Prospera Centre) Fruit and vegetables remain some of the more healthy snacks a person can enjoy. ◗ Banana and chocolate: Rolling a banana in semi-sweet chocolate chips can satisfy a fruit and chocolate craving. ◗ Dark chocolate bark: Melt dark chocolate and add a desired fruit, such as dried cranberries, cherries or raisins. Enjoy a small piece, which will be high in antioxidants, to fend off hunger pangs. ◗ String cheese: An individual serving of low-fat mozzarella or Monterey Jack string cheese offers a serving of dairy and protein to keep you full. ◗ Smoothie: Whip up a smoothie made from protein-rich Greek yogurt and some frozen fruit. Add a dash of fruit juice and blend. Enjoy as a meal replacement or a

refreshing snack. ◗ Fruit: There’s no better snack than fruit. Keep a bowl of fruit or some homemade fruit salad on hand and enjoy a small portion when you want to fill up without consuming too many calories. ◗ Whole-grain crackers: Fiber-full grain crackers can satisfy salty cravings as well as fill your stomach with something hearty. Men and women can choose among a variety of healthy snacks throughout the day. Smart snacking can mean reducing feelings of hunger and increasing the amount of nutrients in the body. Snacks also may be an integral component of a healthy weight-loss plan.

Women can take health cues from the rest of the world

Discover the secrets that help other women live longer



orth American women may want to take health advice from women in other areas of the world. As it turns out, international women may have the secrets to living longer and avoiding medical conditions that seem to plague women in the U.S. and Canada. Here’s how women across the globe are living longer, healthier lives. ◗ Practice portion control. Although you’ve probably heard it before, reducing the amount that you eat can have its benefits, including weight loss. Many people remark how the French dine on cheese and butter and still manage to stay skinny.That is because they are eating in moderation, not making an entire meal out of two pounds of cheese. Smaller portions and maintaining an active lifestyle are two ways that many French women stay slim and healthy. ◗ Go heart-healthy. The “Mediterranean Diet” has been touted in recent years. Women in Italy and Greece set a good example by serving foods that are rich in heart-healthy antioxidants and good fats. Nuts, whole grains, fish and olives are hearty and heart-healthy

foods. Mediterranean cultures also use wine to improve heart health, help prevent cancer and slow the progression of neurological diseases, like Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s. Studies have also shown that moderate amounts of alcohol can raise your good cholesterol and thin your blood. ◗ Stay active in your community. Japanese culture emphasizes family connections and maintaining an extensive support system.The Japanese stay active into older adulthood, which could be why the island region of Okinawa is known for having the highest concentration of centenarians in the world. According to research, Okinawans, when compared to Americans, have an 80 percent lower rate of many cancers, including ovarian and breast cancer. ◗ Eat locally. Do you want to look like a flaxenhaired Scandinavian woman? Many do. Northern Europeans tend to eat farm-to-table, which means consuming things that they or their neighbors have grown and raised. Foods that are rich in omega-3 fatty acids, such as fish, in combination with native vegetables and berries help keep obesity statistics very low. Scandinavians also eat game birds and elk, which produce meat that tends to be leaner than the types of farm-raised livestock North Americans rely on. Adopting the healthy habits of others across the globe can help North American women live longer, healthier and more productive lives.

Sports CHIEFS, from page 10 the execution that we did at one point,” Smyl said. “I don’t think we’re creating the chances that we were having.” Zielonka a scoring machine Last week’s trade for Zielonka signaled the club’s intention to take a serious run at the Royal Bank Cup this year. The Chiefs sent young forward Garrett Forster, defenceman Ben Israel and future considerations to the Express in exchange for Zielonka, who has been one of the BCHL’s


Trade signals serious run for the Cup most prolific scorers this season. Zielonka, 19, had scored 20 goals in just 24 games for the Express prior to the trade. Zielonka won’t be in Chilliwack long—the five-foot-11 sniper has already committed to play university hockey for Harvard next year (as has new teammate Luke Esposito on the Crimson). But head coach Harvey Smyl hopes he will add more scoring punch to a deep forward corps. “Philip is a real competitive and

intelligent player who has very good hands,” Smyl said in a news release. “He is a real offensive threat every time he is on the ice.” He showed his talent immediately. While Smyl said Zielonka looked nervous at times in his first two games, he said he may have been the best player in the Chiefs’ Sunday win over the Capitals. Zielonka wasn’t the only new face in the lineup when the Chiefs took on the Prince George Spruce Kings Friday night.

Smyl also added power forward Tanner Burns to the Chiefs roster last week. Burns is six-foot-three and has been playing—and scoring frequently—for the North Okanagan Kings of the Junior B Kootenay International Junior Hockey League. Burns had 23 goals, 16 assists and 39 points in 34 games for the Kings. Josh Hansen also returned to the lineup Sunday after missing more than a month with a knee injury.

ecember saw a slowdown in real estate sales but local realtors have chosen to focus on Chilliwack property assessments relative to neighouring communities. “Once again, we are witnessing pockets of over-inflated prices due to the pressures of supply and demand, and many homeowners in the Lower Mainland are left in the position of watching their property values decline,” said Cynthia


Admiraal, president of the Chilliwack and District Real Estate Board (CADREB), in a press release. The release pointed out property assessment numbers issued on Jan. 2 showed stable prices in Chilliwack while there were drops in some other Lower Mainland communities. There were just 106 sales worth $32.2 million last month compared to 120 sales worth $33.8 million in December 2011. Despite this slowdown, strong sales inventory prompted CADREB to predict a steady upward trend in sales for 2013
