School district dips into surplus

Sports fields need repairs

he Chilliwack school board will get its first look at next year’s 2013-14 operating budget Tuesday. The proposed financial plan, which totals $123,619,241, will dip into the district’s accumulated surplus to the tune of $909,103, compared to $3.2 million last year. This year’s deficit figure includes a $194,000 operating deficit as well as $500,000 that will go to completing the district’s $2.5 million technology plan launched in 2009 and another $215,000 in restricted surplus money that will be used for the district’s Keeping Kids in School program for aboriginal students. The plan would leave the district’s restricted surplus (money that must be used for specific purposes like aboriginal education) at just under $4 million and its unrestricted reserve fund at $694,103, for a total accumulated surplus of about $4.7 million. The proposed budget features $125,000 in new spending to address recommendations in the district’s special education review, including an extra educational psychologist. The preliminary figures also call for $260,000 more to be spent on businessservices,including$180,000 for three extra custodians and custodial supplies for the new Chilliwack secondary that will open its doors in September. ◗ Tuesday’s school board meeting starts at 7 p.m. at the school board office (8430 Cessna Dr.).

His brother Ken told the Times his brother was “at the wrong place at the wrong time.” Lawrence was stabbed while trying to protect his girlfriend from two other women early in the

he sports fields at the Chilliwack school district’s $46.4 million pair of brand new schools need fixing. “At one point we had ducks swimming in the middle of the field,” Rosedale traditional community school principal Helen Plummer told the Times. “As funny as that is, when you’re standing there looking at your brand new field going, ‘Really?’ there’s a problem.” Since the new kindergarten-toGrade 9 school opened last January, students there have had only limited use of the fields, and next month they will be shut down altogether for work that could take until next spring. Drainage and unevenness caused by settling are the problem, Plummer said, and they’ve been obvious since before the school even opened. “Everybody knew: the contractors, our district team. Everybody knew that the fields were an issue,” she said. Fields at Yarrow elementary, Chilliwack’s newest school, will also be shut down next month to address drainage issues.

owners. The owners of properties known as Stonehurst and the Gervan Residence have voluntarily requested heritage designation, which will be considered after a public hearing on June 4. The designation amounts to a notice on title that regulates any changes to the exterior of the buildings. The applications come on the heels of council approving a new version of the “out of date” heritage designation application process at its May 7 meeting. The new protocol means property owners can apply to voluntarily give heritage status to their buildings or sites. Some communities have created heritage commissions to help designate heritage properties, but staff say they have received so few requests that

a commission was not recommended. Instead, the city paid for statements of significance to be prepared by Vancouver consultant Donald Luxton & Associates to describe the heritage value and “character-defining” elements of the homes. Stonehurst at 46290 Yale Rd. has been owned by Rob O’Brennan and Gwyneth Jones since 2011, but is best known recently as La Mansione restaurant.

The home was built by Chauncey Erwin Eckert in 1909. It has four levels, 17 rooms and is described by the consultant as a “grand mansion” built during the Edwardian era boom period. “It reflects the optimism of the times,” according to the report. The consultant says the home “is a valuable record of the urban and social development of the residential area adjacent to downtown Chilliwack in the early years of the 20th century.” The latter statement also applies to the Gervan Residence at 46054 First Ave. Owner Linda Phelps has also applied for heritage status for her home. The Gervan Residence was built by Harry Herbert and Hattie Gervan in 1911. Harry went on to serve as alderman three times and mayor in 1913. Council gave introduction and first reading to the heritage designation bylaws for both homes at the May 21 meeting and public hearings will be held on June 4.

New playground a godsend for neighbourhood

Unity Christian school comes to the rescue BY CORNELIA NAYLOR cnaylor@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he consolidation and expansion of Unity Chr istian school has been an unexpected boon to young families in the Eastern Hillsides, where there are few places to run and play. The small private school completed a $3.45 million building project at its Hack Brown Road campus this spring to bring its elementary school (previously housed at a separate McNaught Road campus) under the same roof as it middle and high school. Along with additions to the building, the expansion included a brand new $110,000 playground and will also see the installation of a new $170,000 sports field by next spring. The playground has been a godsend to kids in the neighbourhood above the school, according to families who live nearby. “It’s fantastic for my kids,” neighbour Lorraine Brown told the Times. “They have no playground up here. There’s nothing for them to play on but the street or our backyard, so it gives the kids

Cornelia Naylor/TIMES

Unity Christian elementary school students have a little lunchtime fun on their school’s new playground that has also benefited green-space-starved Eastern Hillsides families. a safe place to play. There’s lots of kids here, so it’ll benefit the entire neighbourhood.” The Eastern Hillsides development is chock full of young families, and a lack of green space for kids to play is a common complaint. “When they put this develop-

ment in they were supposed to have green space for the neighbourhood, and that was considered to be the creek,” said Stephanie Brown, another parent who lives close to the school. “But the houses along the creek, even though they don’t own right up to the creek, they have blocked it all

off so you can’t access it.” “There’s really nowhere else close enough to walk or even bike ride where you could run free and have some fun,” said another mom who didn’t want to be named. It’s a problem Unity administrators were well aware of, said viceprincipal Mike Campbell, and

the playground was built with the neighbourhood in mind. “We recognize there’s no other playground or field within five kilometres of here,” Campbell said. “We thought about that when we built it. We wanted to do a good job for our community.” The playground is easily accessible by new stairs and a new walkway that lead up into the adjacent development, and Campbell said the playground is usually hopping with neighbourhood kids by around 5 p.m. on school days. Despite the benefit the new facilities represent, however, the school hasn’t gotten a lot of help funding the project so far. Because independent schools don’t receive capital funding from the provincial government, Unity has had to rely on donations and the sale and development of property owned by the school to fund the expansion. The school’s requests for Chilliwack Foundation and Federal Infrastructure Grants were denied, but principal Ed Noot said he is still in discussions with the City of Chilliwack about a possible arrangement involving the playground. ◗ All of Unity Christian’s shiny new facilities will be on display this Thursday during an open house and barbecue from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Tours will be available.

Not a bad guy, just makes ‘bad decisions’ BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

Distinctive tattoo led cops to robber’s door

T

A large man, Turnbull had already been designated as a prolific offender by Chilliwack RCMP. He entered the credit union wearing a hooded parka, but complied when asked to remove the hood, the court heard. When he reached the teller, he passed a note that read: “I want $15,000 in 50s and 100s. Do not put a dye pack in or hell to pay. Think of your customers . . . someone is outside with a scanner. Do your job, no [one] will get hurt.” Turnbull left with just $400. After quickly identifying their suspect, police immediately headed to

he skull tattoo was a dead giveaway. Called to Prospera Credit Union on Nov. 18 after a report of a robbery, investigators found themselves looking at video of the distinctively tattooed head of James Turnbull. Eighteen months later, Turnbull was in Provincial Court as Crown counsel Brian Fell asked a judge to send the repeat offender to prison for between five and seven years. The robbery was “doomed to fail” from the outset, according to Turnbull’s lawyer Suzanne Paterson, who asked for house arrest.

the house of Turnbull’s sometimesgirlfriend. She arrived on the scene to find the Mounties had not yet approached her home.The girlfriend invited the officers inside, saying Turnbull should not be there. When Mounties entered, they immediately spotted Turnbull, who was arrested without incident. In asking for a stiff sentence, Fell cited a pre-sentence report compiled by Turnbull’s probation officer. He said the report “shows someone who is entrenched into criminality at an early age and has never

taken any steps to rehabilitate himself.” Turnbull has a long criminal record, and has previously spent time in jail for mischief in connection to a 2009 fire, and to offences in 2006 and 2002. But Paterson took issue with the report and its insistence that Turnbull hadn’t been trying to turn his life around. She called Turnbull to the witness stand, from which he told the court that he had been clean of drugs for 17 months since weaning himself off methadone.

He said he had gotten clean in a recovery house and had already been admitted to a Chilliwack River Valley treatment centre. “Forty-three-years-old, I’m burnt out man,” he said. “I’m just done with it. “Now it’s time for me to get up, man up and go back to being normal.” He said he had burnt his bridges and distanced himself from friends connected to the drug world. “I’m not a bad guy,” he said. “I’ve made bad decisions.” The sentencing hearing will continue at a later date, with Fell given the opportunity to cross-examine Turnbull’s testimony.

Pipeline project inching forward BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he twinning of the Trans Mountain oil pipeline through Chilliwack took another step forward on Thursday as owner Kinder Morgan filed a project description with the National Energy Board (NEB). The filing comes on the heels of the NEB’s approval of how Trans Mountain will charge customers to send oil through the expanded pipeline. Kinder Morgan’s $5.4-billion proposal would nearly triple the capacity of the 60-year-old pipeline from 300,000 barrels per day (bpd) to 890,000 bpd. This would involve 981 kilometres of new buried pipeline, new pump stations and tanks, along with new tanker loading facilities at Burnaby’s Westridge Marine Terminal, according to the project description. The company has remained silent on the routing for the new pipe, saying only that it would follow the existing rightof-way wherever possible. In a May 23 letter accompanying the application to the NEB, Kinder Morgan Canada president Ian Anderson said the company has begun its consultation with aboriginal peoples, landowners, municipalities and other stakeholders. “Trans Mountain is working with these groups to better define the issues and concerns and address them through development of our facilities application and the project,” Anderson wrote. The filing with the NEB is part of the pre-application process, which initiates certain activities including preliminary aboriginal engagement and other public consultation. According to the NEB, the project description filing

allows for those affected to contact the proponent for more information and for those who want to participate in the hearing process to organize “to present an effective and efficient single voice on one or more issues at a hearing.” Groups can also inquire if they qualify for the NEB participant funding, which is available for those with direct, local interest in the pipeline expansion and those who “would play an important and distinct role in the process.” Local opposition to the proposal has come from antipipeline group PIPE UP. The group points to oil spills from pipelines over the years as a reason to oppose the project. The closest to home was the 110,000-litre oil leak on Jan. 24, 2012 at the company’s Sumas Mountain terminal site. In 2007, a contractor in Burnaby ruptured the pipeline spraying 234,000 litres of crude oil into the residential neighbourhood. BurnabyDouglas NDP MP Kennedy Stewart has come out against the project, calling it a bad deal for B.C. “We don’t really in B.C. see any benefits from that,” Stewart said, suggesting the bulk of any taxes on the revenue are federal. “This new pipeline is for export only. There’s no local revenue share. By all accounts, there will be no local jobs and there will be no local use of the product. “On the other side, we’ll be taking the risks.” Another local issue came up when the Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD) approved the company’s request to conduct a corridor study through the Cheam Lake Wetlands Regional Park. Trans Mountain expects to file its expansion application in late 2013. If approved, the project would be operational by 2017.

English can change accidentally

G

iven the number of real injustices and outrages in the world, it’s probably wrong of me to flip out about grammar and word usage. Especially since I am far from perfect myself, in both speech and writing. But a few days back, the phrase “on accident” hit my brain again, and I cringed. I’ve always, always used “by accident” and “on purpose.” For the vast majority of English-speaking people, “by accident” is considered correct. You will scarcely ever see “on accident” in print or on TV, unless you’re watching a reality show. But “on accident” is slowly creeping into use in both American and British English, and although I can’t find much evidence north of the 49th parallel, I’d be very surprised if it isn’t already embedded here in Canada, too. I hate this phrase. Every time I hear it, it’s like steel wool being rubbed across my exposed brain. This then forces me to confront the fact that I have absolutely no good reason for my seething, almost violent rage on this subject. English changes. It grows, it branches, it sprouts dialects that wither and die or are absorbed back into the main branch of the language. I know this. Regional change, and change over time, are constant. Compare Jane Austen to Mark Twain, or Charles Dickens to Raymond Chandler, and you’ll see

MATTHEW CLAXTON

Be Our Guest radically different styles and word choices evolve over a few decades and a switch in continents. I also know I’m being irrational, because some differences in word usage don’t bother me at all. I grew up saying “pop” when I wanted a carbonated sugar-laden beverage. That’s the most common usage across much of Canada, and a kid saying “soda” is looked at askance. But on TV, we saw nothing but “soda,” as that’s the common usage in California, where most of the network TV shows are written and produced. Pop versus soda is highly variable across North America, with much of the south preferring to use the word coke, as in “What kind of coke would you like?” “I’ll have an Orange Crush.” Similarly, we’ve reduced other brand names to common nouns, from kleenex in North America to hoover in the U.K. None of this leaves me the slightest bit upset. Let others use their idioms, and I’ll use mine. Then I’ll hear an American describe a group of friends as a clique, and pronounce it “click,” or say that they’ve found their niche, pronounced “nitch.”

The rage comes right back, and I have to fight the urge to strangle someone while screaming “It’s pronounced “cleek,” you moron, it’s FRENCH!” Canadians, with their exposure to French words, French class in schools, and Quebec accents on the news, are much more likely to go with the (to my way of thinking) correct pronunciations than Americans. Why do some words or sentence structures sound so wrong, and why do others sound right? And why do I get so angry about it when I hear the wrong words used? It isn’t like this sort of thing hasn’t happened before. “May I?” and “Can I?” used to be distinct ideas, with “May I?” asking permission, while its sibling asked if something was possible. “Can I?” has swallowed up the former, and I’m sure there were some grammar grumps who raged against it as much as I do against “on accident.” I’m not sure which I want more: to win the fight and banish “on accident” to the remotest inner circle of hell, or to find the ability to calm down and understand that it really doesn’t matter that much. English is going to change whatever I want, and most of those changes will be by accident, rather than on purpose. Not that I’m ready to change yet. ◗ Matthew Claxton is a reporter with the Langley Advance.

nce upon a time, Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s statements of outrage against government waste and cronyism sounded more convincing. That time was when he and the Conservatives were in opposition. When the federal Liberals were caught with their hand in the cookie jar of the Quebec sponsorship program, Harper and his Reform/Alliance/Conservative allies were right to raise a great noise of outrage. But saying “I’m not happy,” and “I’m very upset” when it’s your own senators, your own (now resigned) chief of staff is not enough. We brought up the sponsorship scandal, and so did Harper when he spoke to reporters for the first time about how the senators he appointed—Mike Duffy in particular—seem to have an interesting understanding of how much money they are owed by taxpayers. Harper should stop talking about what the Liberals did a decade ago. Yes, it was bad. Canadians know that. It’s why they’re now only the third largest party in the House of Commons. The Conservatives, on the other hand, have been in power since 2006. They have held a majority government since 2011. But as with every government that hangs on to power in Ottawa for more than a year or two, Harper now has his own list of scandals, including Bev Oda’s taste for expensive orange juice and limo rides, or Peter MacKay’s use of a search and rescue helicopter to go fishing. Harper cannot pretend to be pure and above it all. Obviously, a thorough investigation of the senators and of former chief of staff Nigel Wright is needed. But all of these people were appointed by Harper. We need not question Harper’s personal integrity to question his judgment. Why are those he handpicked to help lead Canada embroiled in scandal? We deserve a more complete answer than platitudes and blaming the last government.

Former MLA’s best advice: ‘Don’t screw it up’

Editor: Open letter to the new MLAs: Dear Laurie and John: Now that the dust has settled, the campaign offices have been vacated and the election signs taken down, you should be feeling the weight of responsibility about now. You have both been given an honour that very few people get the opportunity to experience, the mandate to sit in the B.C. Legislature and speak on behalf of your constituents. As the outgoing MLA for Chilliwack-Hope, I’d like to share some words of wisdom to assist you both in becoming the best possible representatives for the communities that make up both the Chilliwack and Chilliwack-Hope ridings. You’ll know if you’re on the right track if you’re so busy it will take two assistants to help manage your schedule. If you find yourself asking “Wow, is this normal?” let me tell you now, the answer is “Yes,” especially within your first year and especially if you truly want to do a good job. There are many key relationships that need to be established and maintained. This takes time and a willingness to engage and, quite frankly, it is now an expectation. Know that your encouragement and your presence can make all the difference in the lives of community members. A healthy community has environmentalists, nonprofits, union members, nonunion members, faith groups, secular groups, health care associations, corporate leaders . . . you get the picture. A lazy politician builds relationships with the thought of fundraising and getting re-elected as his main drive. Don’t go down that path. Know that the people who visit your office may respond to you and your staff with anger and animosity. Help them anyway. It’s your job. Much of what you do will go unnoticed and unrewarded. That’s what you signed on for. Take the time to really get to know the municipal, aboriginal and regional representatives. They have a lot of wisdom and experience that you can glean from them. After all, they are the most accessible elected leaders. They don’t have the luxury of debating important issues in Victoria or Ottawa, they conduct such business right in their communities and they will let you know if you’re on the right or wrong path. Find a good mentor. Don’t get me wrong, you’ll be given a lot of fancy binders to read and pages of notes, but there is no substitute for experience. Find the right colleague to offer advice along the way. This is key. Choose a person with integrity, not the most

Everyone makes mistakes, including politicians. However, your mistakes will make the six o’clock news. Don’t drive drunk, run red lights, or lose your SkyTrain ticket. The first two may be forgivable but the last could cost you an election. You get the picture. Your life is no longer your own. This is the great trade off that comes with the job. Now comes the most important piece of advice. You will have your share of successes and outright disasters and when you do, don’t puff yourself up with arrogance but don’t berate yourself either. Recognize there is quite a lot you can accomplish, especially when you are in government, but that also means taking responsibility for poor judgments and being upfront when it comes to difficult decisions. You may be members of the BC Liberal Party, but you are first and foremost MLAs. That means that you are the representatives for everyone, including those pesky “socialists” whose “butts you kicked” on May 14. Listen closely to the words spoken at your swearing in ceremony. If they cause you to tear up that’s perfectly natural. You’ve both been awarded, in my opinion, the best jobs in the province, which are established on a sacred trust. Don’t screw it up. Wisdom, compassion, patience and sincerity—may you hold tightly to these virtues as you lend your voices to the important decisions that will be made, not only for the communities in our two ridings, but throughout the province.

No real upside to pipelines Editor: I would like to point out a few more negative aspects of the Kinder Morgan proposed doubling of their pipelines. They would like us to believe that there will be a financial benefit to Chilliwack by this project. I would point out that if any jobs are produced by this work

they will be only temporary. No full-time jobs will result from this. Pipeline work is usually performed by highly specialized workers, and I doubt there are very many in the Chilliwack area. Most of these positions will be taken by experienced pipeliners. Secondly, much civic and private property will have to be destroyed to lay this pipeline. Thirdly, if it is allowed to go ahead, there will be a tremendous increase in super tanker traffic on our coastline and into Vancouver waters. The risk of a major oil spill will increase exponentially. It is not a matter of if, it is a matter of when the next oil spill will happen and we sure don’t want it on our coastline. Finally, I would like to repeat the mantra of big oil and most large corporations of any kind: “Our first responsibility is to our stockholders.” In other words, as long as it is profitable, we don’t care about anything else. Be forewarned, folks. Remember Kalamazoo, Mich. Jerry Riches Chilliwack

Elation quickly turns to disgust Editor: Dropping my kids off at school at Tyson is a daily occurrence, and has been so for the past four years. There is no shortage of speeders through that school zone in front of Tyson; people on their way to work, in their own vehicles and a lot in company vehicles. Racing like the devil is after them well exceeding the 30-kilometre posted limit. Some even pull into Tyson to drop their own kids off, some are even on their cellphones. It’s ridiculous how people just don’t care about anyone other than themselves. An “I don’t care” attitude with a big helping of a sense of entitlement, throw in a cellphone call or two and you have made the perfect recipe. One for hitting a child in a school zone, or quite possibly killing that child

all in the name of “I have to get there or I’m going to be late.” So imagine my surprise when 10 days ago, I take my kids to school and there were police officers at the entrance to the school with a couple of tents and some other adults and students handing out flyers—hotdog! They’re doing speed enforcement, about time. In four years I’ve only seen

them there a total of two other times and this time was third. I was elated. I took my kids into the school and came back out got into my car and proceeded to leave the parking lot. Two officers standing on the curb, three more under the tent. I got closer and couldn’t believe my eyes and my elation quickly turned to disgust. The officers under the tent were handing out

Tim’s coffees and getting their pictures taken with motorists leaving the parking lot. What was the point? I saw no speed enforcement, only some information campaign. To me it was apparent the price of a child is the same price as a free cup of coffee. No speed enforcement, no tickets, and no cream for my coffee. Chris Stayko Chilliwack

New lure’s catch rate may be too high for some tournaments. Out-fishes other bait 19 to 4 in one contest.

Swims with its tail.

Uses aerospace technology to mimic a real fish. BRAMPTON, ON– A small company in the U.S. has developed a new lure that mimics the motion of a real fish so realistically eight professionals couldn’t tell the difference between it and a live shad when it “swam” toward them on retrieval. The design eliminates wobbling, angled swimming and other unnatural motions that problem other hard bait lures. It by Mike Butler swims upright and appears to propel itself with its tail. Curiously, the company may have designed it too well. Tournament fishermen who have used it said it’s possible officials will not allow it in contests where live bait is prohibited. They claim it swims more realistically than anything they have ever seen. If so, that would hurt the company’s promotional efforts. Winning tournaments is an important part of marketing a new lure. Fish would probably prefer to see it restricted. I watched eight veteran fishermen test the new lure (called The KickTail®) on a lake outside Orlando FL for about four hours. Four used the KickTail and four used a combination of their favorite lures and shiners (live bait). The four using the KickTail caught 41 fish versus 14 for the other four. In one boat the KickTail won 19 to 4. The Inventor Scott Wilson KickTail also caught biglands a 10-pounder. ger fish, which suggests it triggers larger, less aggressive fish to strike. The KickTail’s magic comes from a patented technology that breaks the tail into five segments. As water rushes by on retrieval, a

New lure swims like a real fish--nearly triples catch in an American contest.

little-known principle called aeronautical flutter causes the tail to wag left and right, as if the lure were propelling itself with its tail. Unlike other hard baits, the head remains stationary—only the tail wags. A company spokesman told me this. “Marine biologists will tell you that the more a lure swims like a real fish, the more fish it will catch. Well, the only live thing the KickTail doesn’t do is breathe. It’s always swimming wild and free. Fish can’t stand it. We’ve seen fish that have just eaten go for the KickTail. It’s like having another potato chip.” Whether you fish for fun or profit, if you want a near 3 to 1 advantage, I would order now before the KickTail becomes known. The company even guarantees a refund, if you don’t catch more fish and return the lures within 30 days. There are three versions: a floater, a diver and a “dying shad” with a weed guard. Each lure costs $9.95 and you must order at least two. There is also a “Super 10-Pack” with additional colors for only $79.95, a savings of almost $20.00. S/h is only $7.00 no matter how many you order. To order call 1-800-873-4415 (Ask for item #kts), or click www.Fishing TechTo day.com anytime or day. Or send your name, address and a check to Scientific Edge LLC (Dept. KT-604), 40 E. Main Street, Suite 1416, Newark, DE 19711. The KickTail® is 4 inches long and works in fresh and saltwater.

Rosedale Grade 9 thrower Tasha Willing gets in some shot put training at the Sardis track Friday. This week Willing will compete in senior girls shot put, discus and hammer throw at the B.C. High School Track and Field Championships in Langley.

iddle schooler Tasha Willing may not win gold competing against much older girls at this week’s B.C. High School Track and Field Championships, but she hopes pitting herself against the tougher competition will pay off in the long run. The Grade 9 student dominated the junior throwing events at the Fraser Valley Championships earlier this month, winning gold in shot put, discus and hammer throw, but she has her sights set on international competition and, ultimately, the Olympics some day. So she’s opted to push herself and compete against seniors instead of competitors her own age. Willing got into throwing a few years ago after joining the Chilliwack Track and Field Club as a way to keep active after the end of soccer season. “From the start I kind of just knew I wasn’t going to be a runner; I wasn’t going to be a jumper,” she said. But one thing set her apart almost immediately. “Right from the start shot put she won pretty much everywhere,” her mom Marcy said. Discus and hammer throw followed, and before long, Willing was getting pointers from former national team hammer thrower Harold Willers (now a math teacher at Chilliwack secondary). And, two years ago she joined his throwing group that trains twice a week in Abbotsford. “She’s very good,” Willers said of Willing. “She’s got a lot of the gifts: she’s strong, she’s

quick and she’s reasonably patient for a young lady in Grade 9.” Surprisingly, patience is key in throwing events, according to Willers. “You need to be powerful and strong and fast, but you also have to have the right attitude,” he said. “Because throwing events are technical, it’s not one of those instant reward things. You have to work at it for a long period of time to reap the benefits.” Willers expects his young charge to advance to the finals in at least two events at the B.C.’s and gain valuable experience in the process. “Later on, when she’s actually in senior high, she’ll be used to the whole atmosphere,” he said. Willing won’t be the only Chilliwack competitor at the provincials this week. G.W. Graham jumper Ryan Higuchi will compete in the junior triple jump and long jump. Sardis secondary’s Ashley Heisler qualified for the senior girls 400 metres and 800 metres, and the 4x100 metre relay with teammates Jennifer Wiebe, Michaela England and Caitlin Geary. Chilliwack secondary’s Levi Halfpenny qualified for the senior boys 200 metres, while teammate Caitlin LeBlanc qualified for the senior girls 1,500-metre steeplechase. And Katie Procee of Unity Christian will compete in the senior girls 400-metre hurdles. ◗ The 2013 B.C. High School Track and Field Championships run May 31 to June 1 at McLeod Athletic Park in Langley.

Five players make Team BC

Will play in Winnipeg

F

ive local football players have been named to the 2013 U-16 Team BC. G.W. Graham receiver Emerson Smith, running back William Hanson, lineman Braydon Winger and linebacker Jordon Breuker all made the team, as did Chilliwack Giants lineman Chris Derkson.

The team will represent British Columbia in July at the 2013 Red River Cup in Winnipeg. They’ll be accompanied by a coaching staff that includes

Chilliwack’s Suresh Parray and Mike Derksen, who will handle the quarterbacks and running backs, respectively. “We believe that the combination of hungry and spir-

ited players that have been selected to be part of U-16 Team BC, along with our accomplished coaching staff, position us well for success,” said head coach Sean Roden. Giants coach Laurie Smith said that, with four players on the squad, G.W. Graham was among the top four programs in the province. “We are very very proud of all of the players who tried out and the four who successfully made the team,” he said.

New goal for local tourism

No water shortage BY PAUL J. HENDERSON phenderson@chilliwacktimes.com

P

ouring rain and cold temperatures were no match for hundreds of local residents Sunday who headed to Abbotsford for the annual Run for Water. Nearly 5,000 runners raised $358,000 for clean water projects and took part in marathon, half-marathon, 10-kilometre and five-kilometre races. In the marathon there were two Agassiz residents and six runners from Chilliwack in the 226-person field. Thomas Hoogendoorn was the top Agassiz racer in 29th spot with a time of 3:23:11, and Kristopher Barkowski was the top Chilliwack marathoner, finishing 48th in a time of 3:37:23. David Palermo of Vancouver won the marathon in a time of 2:35:08. In the half-marathon distance, five runners were from Agassiz, one from Cultus Lake and 82 from Chilliwack. The first local across the line in the 21kilometre race was Stacie Weinberger of Chilliwack who ran a 1:34:55, good enough for 29th overall. The top Agassiz runner was Adam Sippel who finished 56th in a time of 1:41:51. The winner of the half was Abbotsford’s David Jackson who set a blistering course record of 1:10:49. Sixteen residents of Agassiz, one from Harrison Hot Springs, one from Cultus Lake and 143 from Chilliwack competed in the 10-kilometre race. The fastest

Run for Water ultramarathoners cross Highway 1 at No. 3 Rd. on Saturday 17 kilometres into their 58-kilometre trek from the Vedder Bridge in Chilliwack to Abbotsford. Chilliwack runner was Rodrigo Zerecero in 49th place in a time of 46:02. Yue-Ching Cheng of Port Coquitlam won in a time of 35:38. In the five-kilometre distance, 218 Chilliwack residents took part, along with 16 from Agassiz, one from Cultus Lake and one from Harrison Hot Springs. The fastest Chilliwack runner was young Yarrow resident Maijken Meindertsma (male 8-11 category), who ran a 21:07, good enough for 19th overall. Not far behind him in the same age category was local Finnegan Longhurst who finished in 50th in a time of 22:52. On Saturday, about 15 runners joined Canadian adventurer Ray Zahab on a 54-kilometre ultramarathon that took off from the start of the Rotary Trail in Chilliwack and ended at the Envision Athletic Centre in Abbotsford. Zahab is known for his 111-day run across the Sahara Desert six years ago

and his 250-kilometre run the length of Death Valley in August of 2011. In June, if all goes well, Zahab and teammate Ferg Hawke will attempt to run across the Gobi Desert at its widest point in summer, approximately 2,000 kilometres. Raising funds The Run for Water is a popular road race but, more importantly, it’s a charitable cause. This year, Cheam elementary students, under the leadership of Grade 3/4 teacher Duane Morellrade 3/4 teacher embraced the cause and raised $2050.80, which amounts to clean water for about 56 people in Ethiopia for the rest of their life. The teachers took this on as a part of class curriculum, running with fundraising ideas students came up with. The school also organized a mini-run of their own on May 16.

Graham digs deep for win

T

he G.W. Graham senior boys AA rugby team dug deep late in the last half to win their first-ever provincial championship game in Kelowna Saturday. The Grizzlies defeated Kalamalka secondary 15-10 with tries scored by Austin Creasey, Cameron Meldrum and Jake Creasey. “This game was truly a team effort,” Graham coach Paula Jordan said. “The boys dug deep to pull out the win late in the second half.” The victory puts Graham into the top bracket of the provincial tournament, which moves to Abbotsford’s Rotary Stadium for the final three rounds, and the Grizzlies will face top-seed Brentwood College in a quarter-final match Wednesday. “The squad is ready and hungry for this

next challenge,” Jordan said. “Our goal is to improve upon our eighth place ranking.” The Grizzlies game kicks off at 10:30 a.m. Sardis secondary’s AAA senior boys team, meanwhile, ran into a wall during their firstround match against Kelowna secondary Saturday, losing 66-3. “Sometimes it just doesn’t go as planned,” Falcons coach Darren Purych said of the result. “I have to hand it to Kelowna they were better prepared and came ready to play.” The loss drops Sardis to the bottom eight of the tournament, and the Falcons will take on 13th seed Lord Byng at Abbotsford’s Exhibition Field Wednesday at 2 p.m.

She’s after tournaments at national or even international level but also private events along the lines of the Whistler’s Tough Mudder. And Heritage Park has capacity for BMX and motocross events both inside and out, as demonstrated by events already held there. “I think that’s a market that we can easily tap into and Chilliwack can take advantage of.” Colthorp said there are three important local benefits to attracting major tournament to town: heads in beds, media expo-

sure and community pride. The first is obvious as it translates into dollars for local hotels and restaurants. The second, media coverage, gives the city exposure to all the parents, siblings and friends who hear about Chilliwack. And the third, community pride, just helps shore up a city’s sense of itself. Sometimes an event will not make money, maybe barely break even, but it can serve a more abstract purpose, according to Colthorp. “What it will do is bring the rest of the community up,” she said. “It just makes people do the ‘rah, rah, rah’ about Chilliwack.”

Chilliwack secondary graduate MURDERED, from page 1 moving to Alberta two years ago, they moved back to Chilliwack last month. Lawrence, an alarm technician, was due to start a new job last week. He had travelled to Alberta during the May Long Weekend to spend time with his girlfriend, Ken said. Early reports that a fight led to his brother’s death annoyed Ken, who said Lawrence wasn’t a fan of house parties and “would avoid confrontation at any means necessary.” Ken said his brother was urged to hide in a closet prior to the stabbing, but did not heed those warnings. “In his mind, he felt he needed to protect the people he was with,” he said. According to RCMP Sgt. Ben Scott, in a meeting of “happenstance,” two women were invited into a house with Lawrence and his girlfriend. “From there a dispute arose,” Scott told reporters on Friday. “I can’t get into the specifics.” Lawrence’s 20-year-old girlfriend was attacked, according to RCMP reports, and he was stabbed while trying to protect her. Lawrence, a Chilliwack secondary school grad, is being remembered as a friendly guy who “just wanted to be loved.” Ken said Lawrence would “act geeky or nerdy” to get a laugh, and was known for his love of cars and, in particular, his blue Nissan 350Z. It’s those memories, and the knowledge that Lawrence died while trying to protect his friends, that are consoling his family. “It’s hard, but it helps a bit to know that he died honourably,” Ken said. “It sucks that he died the way he did, but it happened—there’s nothing you can do to change it. “I wanted people to know the person that he was,” Ken said. “He was the kind of guy who wouldn’t hurt a fly.” A 20-year-old woman was also hurt in the incident, but has since been released from hospital. Two people have been arrested and charged in connection to the killing. Kristy Noel Redgun, 18, and Allison Oldwoman, 20, of Siksika, have been charged with first-degree murder, which indicates police believe the killing involved a degree of premeditation. A public viewing will be held Friday at Henderson’s Funeral Home, with a funeral and ceremony scheduled for the following day.

n Agassiz chiropractor has been suspended from practising for six months and fined $10,000 for “engaging in sexual conduct” with a patient. According to the College of Chiropractors of British Columbia, Kevin Henke admitted that the sexual conduct took place between December 2007 and February 2008.

Licence suspended That conduct contravened the rules of the college, which handed down its punishment earlier this month. According to the college, “Dr. Henke consented to an order from the Inquiry Committee (1) reprimanding

him for professional misconduct, (2) suspending his registration for six months commencing no later than 60 days from the Order issued on May 3, 2013 (with three months to be stayed if all other terms of the order

are met), and requiring him to (3) complete approved coursework on boundary issues at his own expense; and (5) pay costs of $10,000.” Henke operates Mount Cheam Family Chiropractic. According to his website, Henke has been a practising chiropractor in Agassiz for eight years. - Staff

Fewer locals seeking bankruptcy protection Quicker to seek financial help BY TYLER OLSEN tolsen@chilliwacktimes.com

T

he number of Chilliwack residents heading for bankruptcy has declined each of the last two years, according to numbers released recently by a Lower Mainland bankruptcy trustee firm. In 2012, 178 people in Chilliwack applied for bankruptcy protection, while another 67 people submitted consumer proposals to erase their debt.

The combined number—245— was down 23 percent from 2010, when 317 bankruptcies or consumer proposals took place. The numbers were collected by the government of Canada and broken down and disseminated by Blair Mantin, a vice-president of Sands & Associates. Mantin said the numbers suggest consumers are seeking financial help earlier to avoid bankruptcy. “Debt levels are at an all time high,” he said,“but it’s interesting that bankruptcies are actually declining in Chilliwack—they were down about 12 per cent from 2011 to 2012. “However, consumer proposals have increased more than 11 per

SCHOOLS COMMUNITY SERVICE DAY

cent in that same time period,” Mantin said. That increase includes proposals filed in Mission. Consumer proposals give debtors the ability to avoid bankruptcy by offering to pay back a portion of the money owed. Mantin—whose firm promotes the use of consumer proposals—says the numbers show a trend towards people trying to negotiate down their debts before bankruptcy is the only option. Mantin said foreclosures are a main driver of bankruptcies. “A lot of people who are coming in who are doing bankruptcies these days, it’s because they bought the house a couple years ago, expected it to go up . . . [but]

the house has declined in value and they’re having trouble making the mortgage payments,” Martin said. “I see a surprising number of young families who overextended themselves, had to sell, and if they’re locking in a $50,000 loss, sometimes it’s too much for them to consider doing a proposal on.” Martin says the tightening of consumer credit and mortgage rules, along with the fear of rising interest rates, has put a damper on some of the speculation that fuelled much of the debt accumulated over the last decade. But, he says, British Columbians continue to carry loads of personal debt—$37,000 on average.

The increase in stem cells released from the bone marrow into the blood stream have the potential to become other types of tissue cells with specialized function. Stem cells will multiply and are able to become heart cells, liver cells or any other organ. Located everywhere in our body, stem cells are even under our skin layered between the epidermis and dermis. This is why an increase in stem cells under our skin may help to create a more youthful cell that would replenish elastin and collagen and thus may make us look younger. If our bone marrow does not produce enough stem cells this can result in many illnesses, especially a weak heart, kidneys, liver, pancreas, in fact all healthy functions of our body are decreased. Sufficient stem cells in our body have a great potential of selfrepair and the ability to rejuvenate tissues. !Women looking for anti-aging help! We all want to slow down aging. After using a bottle of Bell Stem Cell Activator #63 my skin seemed smoother and brighter. My hair looked healthier. It seems to have a cleansing effect. I’m delighted. Leona McCormick, 50, Clgary, AB ! All around healing effect! The first thing I noticed after starting Bell Stem Cell Activator #63 was that my skin feels firmer and stronger. My friends commented that my skin looks more vibrant. My doctor at my yearly physical told me that my blood pressure is significantly lower. Many good things are happening. Joy Davison, 55, Calgary, AB

SNORING?

As recommended by Dr. Gifford-Jones M. D.

The entire student body at Vedder middle school was involved in a community service day Friday. Different homeroom classes each did projects to help the community. Brandon Bateman (left) and Jermaine Douglas are shown, here, loading up teacher Mr. Murphy’s truck with food. FIELDS, from page 1 One section of those fields, built and seeded last spring, has been usable since the school opened in September, but a second portion, seeded about two weeks ago, won’t be available in September as planned. “The district has recognized that it would be better to do more work on that field,” principal Nathan Ngieng said. Plummer credits the district for being proactive about the problems and—eager as her P.E. teachers are to get full use of the fields—she is happy the district seems to be looking to solve the problems for the long term instead of settling for a “quick fix.” District officials, meanwhile, won’t say much about why the perennial drainage problems at the two schools (both sit in a floodplain) have persisted after the construction of new fields, how much

May go to court

it will cost to deal with them or who will pay for it. Those discussions have been held in camera, superintendent Evelyn Novak told the Times earlier this month, because making them public could interfere with negotiations between the district and a company originally involved in building the fields. She didn’t name a specific company, but Port Moodybased Yellowridge Construction Ltd. was the builder awarded the $46.4 million contract for both schools in April 2010. It’s possible the matter could end up in court if the two sides can’t come to an agreement, secretary-treasurer Maureen Carradice said, but she added that would be unlikely.

Loose muscles

in the throat cause snoring, also interrupted breathing and gasping for air (sleep apnea), which brings on being tired all day, need for napping, high blood pressure, strokes, heart attacks, irregular heart beat. Read below how Bell helps thousands, usually first night, inexpensively, with no side effects. Greatly improves quality of life and saves marriages. Survey says 48% snore and 75% are suffering if you include the silent suffering partners. To my surprise, after taking BellSound Sleep #23 I really didn’t snore or gasp for air anymore. I sleep through the night and feel rested and refreshed in the morning. Mark Wilson, 40, Hudson, NH ! Sleep apnea capsules worked first night! For last 15 years I had sleep apnea and my doctor made me buy a CPAP machine, which I could not use. Finally Bell #23 helped the first night and every night thereafter. Like a miracle. Unbelievable. Karen Braun, 67, Glace Bay, NS ! For 20 years I was waking up frequently gasping for air. During the day I would start napping every time I would sit down, #23 because I was tired. Since taking Bell #23 sleeping 6 hours is heaven. It made a substantial change in my life. Mary C. Myrick, 62, Jackson, MS !It is such a joy not having to use the CPAP machine. I have had sleep apnea for 10 years. Using Bell#23, my wife says there is no more snoring or stoppage of breathing. It is such a joy to be able to roll to left or right with no hose or mask to deal with. Thank you Bell for a great relief. I suggest anyone with these problems to try it. You will be overjoyed with the results. Wayne Burse, 63, Beamsville, ON.

SLEEP APNEA?

I don’t have to walk around like a doped zombie anymore. Leonard Waldner, 44, Delia, AB ! For 20 years my life was miserable with sneezing, watery eyes and sinus pressure year-round on most days. I was amazed. On 3rd day all #24 allergies were gone. It was like magic. Becky Gerber, 25, Dover, OH !Golfing without allergy attacks I tried all the medications and none worked. After taking 1 capsule in the morning I’m completely free of all symptoms. Richard Gamez, 74, San Antonio, TX !God bless you I went from doctor to doctor for years with allergy sinus problems.
