Mufford overpass

Public to get say on overpass Langley Township council wants residents to have one more say on a proposed overpass plan.

For residents who missed the recent open houses showing off a redesigned Mufford-Glover overpass, there may be one more chance for public input. On Monday, Langley Township council voted to call for a public hearing-style meeting in the near future. Mayor Rick Green raised the issue at the end of the meeting. The Township won’t be the official host, as they’re asking the provincial Ministry of Transportation, which is running

the overpass project, to hold the meeting. The council also voted to ask for all the raw data from the open houses, including feedback from residents, and to invite the Agricultural Land Commission to attend the public meeting. Councillor Grant Ward was not happy with the plan for more meetings, saying the council has gone through three votes, accusing Green of wanting to disagree with the province again. Other councillors were okay with taking the issue to the public one more time, as long as they didn’t step on the toes of the provincial government. “It’s been a divisive issue,” said Coun. Bob Long. Coun. Charlie Fox noted that some people may not have been able to make it to the open houses. Council voted to hold the session, with Ward opposed.

The new version of the overpass was unveiled last week and is very different from the controversial version that was scuttled by the ALC last year. The new version is shorter, and connects to Glover Road/ Highway 10 at a three-way intersection. It uses considerably less farmland, but does involve moving parts of Mufford Crescent and Glover Road to accommodate the rail overpass. The overpass is part of a series of projects along the Roberts Bank Rail Corridor, creating overpasses to allow drivers to avoid being stuck as longer and more frequent trains pass through South of the Fraser Communities. Both the Mufford-Glover interchange and an interchange on the Langley City-Surrey border have caused controversy over a variety of design issues.

Helicopter pilot Rod Phillipson was hoping to open a flight school at the Langley Regional Airport, before he crashed on a flight to Kelowna on Friday evening. Airport manager George Miller said Phillipson, whose body was found Tuesday near Coquihalla Mountain in the wreckage of his Aerospatiale A350, had worked and flown out of Langley since 2004. A resupply helicopter from Wildcat Helicopters had been doing unrelated work in the search area when the pilot noticed the crash scene. “We would like to thank the communities for their support through phoning in with search tips and for their respect for the family’s wishes for privacy during this difficult time,” said searchmaster Capt. David Burneau of the 442 Transport and Rescue Squadron, 19 Wing Comox. Phillipson’s company, Sky FX, did a bit of everything, Miller remembered. “Primarily he was a charter guy,” he said. However, Phillipson also flew pipeline inspections, flew both fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters, and was working to open a flight school. He hadn’t yet got his certification when he crashed, Miller said. This was not Phillipson’s first crash. Several years ago, he crashed in an airplane while travelling to the Lower Mainland from the Okanagan, due to icing that stopped his engine. “He was very fortunate he survived it,” Miller said. The pilot suffered a serious eye injury at the time, Miller recalled. The crash took place in the same general area as Friday’s fatal incident. Phillipson was unmarried, and was apparently hoping to visit his girlfriend in Kelowna on this trip, Miller said.

Several hundred people in Aldergrove are using any means they can think of to get eight of their neighbours jobs by Sunday. They are sending out flyers, networking, and speaking to the Langley Advance as they work with the eight residents who need jobs. Why have they taken on the task? These are the 100 families taking part in the Million Dollar Neighbourhood reality TV show filming in Aldergrove. Each week the families are given challenges to increase their personal net worth and the community’s financial picture overall. In August, they had a massive garage sale. From among the 100 families that signed up for the show based on finances, eight have agreed to the latest challenge presented by the show’s producers, Force Four Entertainment. Anyone who has a job open that might be right for these people is asked to contact Seven of the participants agreed to be spotlighted in the community newspaper.

Debt load is being lightened Langley schools’ debts are being settled ahead of schedule. by Heather Colpitts

The Langley School District is starting to pay off its debt earlier than planned, starting a year before required. When the district discovered it had a $13.5 million shortfall due to accounting errors and overspending, it created a repayment plan which was approved by the provincial government. The plan calls for the district to pay down about $3.37 million starting this school year, 2011/2012. But then it made $3.5 million in cuts for 2010/2011, a year in which it was only required to balance its budget. Audited financial statements show the district finished the year with a $6.2-million surplus, of which $3.5 million was used to reduce the debt to $9.75 million. Another $1.2 million of the surplus will go to this year’s debt payment. The rest will be used to address increased utility and other costs this year. “Job well done to everyone who had a hand in getting that [debt] number down below 10 million,” said Trustee Rod Ross. The district has until the 2013/14 school year to clear up its financial problems. “We still have $10 million to pay off,” noted secretary-treasurer Dave Green. He gave some of the credit for the early debt-repayment start to schools that looked for savings: “Schools really took it to heart that we found ourselves in a difficult situation.” More help will come from the Ministry of Education’s approval to sell the Aldergrove Elementary site. “I believe we’re in a very solid place financially,” said Trustee Wendy Johnson.

Gang war could break out, police say by Matthew Claxton

Police have issued a warning to people across the Lower Mainland that another round of gang violence may be brewing. Jujhar Singh Khun-Khun was shot several times on Sept. 16 in Surrey, surviving the attack. Police believe it may have been in retaliation for

operate extensively in Langley. Police are not commenting on where any of the gangsters live or have their bases of operations. Whelan said all of the gangs involved are relatively large and operate across much of the Lower Mainland. The Bacon Brothers grew up in Abbotsford, and several of their associates lived or worked in Langley. Albert Jackman of Aldergrove went to prison for life this year for a murder committed in the Otter area of Langley, and associate Kevin LeClair was gunned down at the Walnut Grove IGA in February 2009.

Khun-Khun was an associate of Sukh Dhak, and police warn people to stay away from Dhak and the Duhre brothers and their associates. An alliance of Dhak, the Duhres, and some United Nations gang members may be facing off against the Red Scorpions, the Hells Angels, and the Independent Soldiers. Sgt. Bill Whelan of the Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit (CFSEU) would not say if the gangs


Silas O’Brien death case wrapping up Parent has pleaded not guilty in court to criminal negligence causing death, dangerous driving causing death, dangerous driving, failure to stop, and failure to offer assistance.

by Matthew Claxton

The trial of Brent Parent, accused to running down and killing Silas O’Brien three years ago in South Langley, will wrap up later this fall. Parent testified Monday in his own defence, and after cross examination by the Crown, the list of witnesses was exhausted. Last week, the Crown presented its witnesses, including two friends of O’Brien who were with him when their truck encountered Parent’s vehicle on 16th Avenue west of 264th Street at 2 a.m. When the young men tried to pass Parent, who was driving an F350 pickup, they say he sideswiped them into a ditch. The three men got out unhurt, but Parent’s truck returned minutes later and ran over O’Brien, a 21-year-old Abbotsford resident. O’Brien’s friends described a sudden sharp veer when Parent’s truck approached. Parent testified that he was angling his truck so he could see the wreck at the side of the road better. He told the court he didn’t even know he’d hit anyone until the next day when he saw the news. Other witnesses said his wheel went over O’Brien’s body. The case has now been adjourned to Nov. 4 in New Westminster’s courthouse, for final submissions by both the Crown and defense attorneys.

If convicted of criminal negligence causing death, the most serious charge, he could face a life sentence. Dangerous driving causing death has a maximum sentence of 14 years.

Skype scam stings local victim GOLD & SILVER A new variation on an old scam has hit a Langley resident. by Matthew Claxton

A Langley resident who thought she was helping a soldier in Afghanistan has instead been taken by con artists halfway around the world. What makes this scam different is the use of voice over internet protocol (VoIP) by the scammers to make contact, said Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks. “The technology they’re using may be current, but the basics of the scam – that is to quickly establish trust, then ask for money under some pretense – remain the same,” Marks said. The Langley resident was using the Skype service to talk to a person who claimed to be a Lieutenant General in the US Army in Afghanistan. After establishing a relationship, the scammer asked the Langley resident to send $1,000 in exchange for a trunk box. The cash would be used to pay registration and delivery fees for the United Nations, and a diplomat would later pick up the trunk at the victim’s


home. The victim sent the cash through an “accountant” in Ghana using Western Union. Of course, the case never existed, nor did the fees needed to secure its shipment. The officer is a real person, but his name has been appropriated in this and other cases by scam artists, Marks said. A simple Google search was enough to show that the entire transaction was fraudulent. “Unfortunately, the victim in this instance is not able to recover the funds,” said Marks. “The police discourage anyone from transferring funds to an individual with whom a relationship has been quickly established through phone, email or other means.” The most common version of the scam, known as the Nigerian scam, involves someone claiming to be a wealthy individual, perhaps a deposed politician from Africa, who needs to move money out of their country through Canada. They offer an outrageous amount of cash for help – but get either access to the victim’s bank account, or the payment of various “fees.”

FREE HEARING TESTS Condo builder goes bigger SET FOR ADULTS by Matthew Claxton

For the second time, Langley Township council has approved a change to building plans that will allow larger condos to be built in the Yorkson area. Quadra Homes is slowly developing a massive project involving more than 1,400 units of housing west of 208th Street, between 80th and 84th Avenues. On Monday, they asked for changes to a development permit, allowing the company to build condos five storeys tall instead of four. The changed designs will actually reduce the number of units in the project, because Quadra is increasing the size of individual units, said Shawn Bouchard, representing the company. “They are larger, but we’re not seeing more people,” Bouchard said. This part of the project involves six buildings north of 82nd Avenue. Three of them will have their heights increased to five storeys. The number of units will decline from 171 to 165. The condos will range from 560 square feet to more than

1,500 square feet. While the number of apartments will be down, some councillors had reservations about the increase in size. “Visually, it looks far more dense than the previous application was,” said Councillor Kim Richter. The other item that caught the attention of council was the addition of solariums – glassed-in balconies – on several floors of the buildings. Coun. Charlie Fox wasn’t fond of the look of them as they faced 208th Street and 82nd Avenue, and he tried to get council support for having them removed from the project along those roads. Other councillors said they liked the look of the solariums. Only one resident complained about the building during the public portion of the meeting. Jacob De Raadt wanted to know about school spaces in the region. The issue has been a hot-button topic as Willoughby has grown rapidly, and elementary schools there are bursting at the seams with children. A new school, Lynn Fripps Elementary, will open near the site in 2012.

Parking is trumping pretty when it comes to turning McBurney Lane into a decorated pedestrian corridor from Douglas Crescent to Fraser Highway. Anita Ference, owner of Anna’s Books, appeared before Langley City council

Monday evening to voice opposition to the plans and present a petition with 1,200 signatures opposition the loss of parking between Douglas Crescent and the alley. From the alley to Fraser Highway is already pedestrian only. “This parking is essential

to all concerned,” she said. Conceptual plans were presented that evening and were unveiled at a public open house this summer. “No decisions been made,” Councillor Teri James told Ference and other opponents at the meeting.

Rotary wine festival will help fund new program Langley Rotarians are helping out youth with their annual wine festival. by Roxanne Hooper

A new youth outreach program is on the verge of bursting onto the street scene in Langley. And that program is going to be possible, in part thanks to a Rotary Club fundraiser coming up in early November – about the time the new youth initiative is expected to commence in Langley. Who knew wine-tasting could prove so lucrative for local charities? Counting down to this fall’s Fraser Valley Wine Tasting Festival, organizers from the Rotary Club of Langley Central are boasting that the event has generated more than three-quarters of a million dollars for local charities and projects in its 22year history. But club president Grace Robertson is more excited than ever about what the money from this year’s Nov. 5 event is going to achieve in the way of helping Langley’s youth. Part proceeds from the wine festival will support an awardwinning mobile outreach program – like the one in Port Coquitlam called PoCoMo – that is coming to Langley to provide

prevention and early intervention services to this community’s youth. With the use of modified 24foot-long shuttle bus operating Friday and Saturday evenings from 7 p.m. to midnight, Project Reach Out meets youth where they are, Robertson explained. The youth buses travel to areas of the community where youth naturally hang out – parks, recreation facilities, convenience stores, drop-in centres, malls, and other hot spots, she elaborated. Staff engage youth through the bus or walk-abouts offering support and services such as oneto-one counselling, early/crisis intervention, drug and sexual health education, community information and referrals, follow-up support, and a safe place to go after-hours. This programs mission “to provide outreach support and services to youth in our community” fits well with the Rotary Club’s focus on Langley’s most precious asset… kids, Robertson emphasized. “As a community organization the Rotary Club of Langley Central’s main area of concern is Langley’s youth specifically those at risk due to poverty or life circumstance beyond their control,” she said. The club has built playgrounds, supported inner-city schools with program funding, and supported local organiza-

Project Reach Out is expected to literally roll into Langley this fall, in part thanks to this year’s Langley Central Rotary Club wine festival. tions working with youth. Robertson said the result is a safer community and a chance for youth to grow up healthy, happy, and become productive citizens. The “saying it takes a village to raise a child” comes to mind for Robertson when considering the support her Rotary Club gives to Langley’s youth. “For each of the past 22 years the club has also hosted one of the most unique and entertaining social evenings of the fall

season, the Fraser Valley Wine Tasting, as a means to raise money for these projects.” Keeping with tradition, the event is once again being held at Willowbrook Shopping Centre, starting at 7 p.m. on Nov. 5. Guests will again be able to sample wines from more than 30 different wineries and wine merchants, sample signature offerings from five Langley restaurants and caterers, enjoy live music, and have a chance to win a trip for two to Las Vegas.

“We are expecting over 1,000 people again this year so everyone is urged to buy their $50 tickets ahead of time when they go on sale because they sell out very quickly, said Rotarians and festival organizing chairs John Morgan and David Taft. “Join us for a night of great food, great company, and great wine – all in the name of raising money for local charities.” Tickets are available now, online at or to be reserved at 604-309-4242.

Time to listen Is it democracy? Or is it the threat of democracy that is the primary motivator behind Township council’s decision to consult with the public over the new – slightly improved – Mufford Crescent/Glover Road rail overpass proposal? This is the same council that didn’t seem terribly interested in what their constituents had to say about the old proposal – the one that they were perfectly willing to accept against the wishes of those from whom they now wish to seek new advice – the one that, thankfully, was axed by the non-elected folks over at the Agricultural Land Commission, after it had been approved by this council. Of course there are differences. For one thing, as mentioned before, the current proposal is a little (although not a lot) better than the previous one. Another important difference is that Township council has no real say in whether or not the current proposal goes ahead. This is now a provincial initiative, and the buck stops at the premier’s office, without official decision-making input from council – although in the local council’s defence, they were working last time under an ultimatum from then-provincial highways minister Kevin Falcon, who said they would have to accept the design as presented, or lose any provincial funding. Also – and we’re wondering if this is the definitive difference – councillors will soon be facing the ballot box. Responsible voters will remember that their votes will impact more than one issue over the next three years – but they also aren’t likely to forget how their council handled its responsibility to be accountable in this matter. Interestingly, both current sitting council members seeking the mayoralty in the next election – incumbent Mayor Rick Green and Councillor Mel Kositsky – were alongside the community in expressing disapproval at the previous overpass proposal. But we suspect all council members will listen closely this time. – B.G.

Editorial response

Don’t steal speeders’ cars Apparently, 13 luxury cars were involved in an alleged street-racing incident on Sept, 1. We should be concerned about a journalist in an editorial capacity advocating that the state (province of B.C.) confiscate private property (expensive vehicles) for traffic violations that involved no accidents [Taking hot cars is true justice, Sept. 15 Opinion, Langley Advance]. You refer to this as “true justice.” The editorial writer appears to base his opinion on jealous envy, that the vehicles were elite class, expensive luxury sports cars, and the young drivers must therefore be “indulgent, spoiled, young men with wealthy parents.” So what? Maybe they are spoiled and wealthy kids, which is so far not illegal in Canada. The penalty should fit the crime, and the crime here appears to be speeding. Yes, speeding is dangerous, and the faster you are clocked, the greater the danger and the higher the penalty. Every day, we have speeders on our street, some twice and three times the speed limit. Some are motorbikes and ATV’s racing.

The police sometimes respond when requested, but not always. The penalty should not be based on the social class of the perpetrator or some left-wing ideology that the state should confiscate and sell our possessions as your editorial suggests. Such a vengeful attitude against the wealthy regresses eventually toward communism, where the so called “distribution of wealth” allows all to become equally poor. History reveals that, if you condone the seizure of cars today, what then tomorrow: your house, your child, other freedoms? We, as a free society, need to be careful of how much power the police and authorities are given, as we are losing our freedoms at an increasing pace. Consider recent Taserings and shootings of unarmed citizens, search and seizure of private property, and trespassing on private property without warrants, etc. This emphasizes the importance of our legal profession that defends and resists us from sliding further into Big Brother intrusive government.

Medicinal Marijuana

Patients forced to suffer and wait Dear Editor,

Langley RCMP Superintendent Derek Cooke seems unaware of how long and arduous it is to obtain a license for medical marijuana. It does not happen overnight. Some doctors are still reluctant to approve the application. If the doctor does approve the application, the person then must be seen by a specialist in the patient’s field. That can take many months for an appointment.

If you are lucky enough to get the specialist to approve the application, you have to send it off to Health Canada. It takes six to eight weeks for them to approve and send you a card. Then you have to get seeds from Health Canada, or marijuana from Health Canada, or find a grower licensed to grow medical marijuana for you. During all that time, the patient is still suffering. I have no idea how long it takes to cultivate a qual-


No sympathy for serial killer Dear Editor,

Handicap parking

Other targets for fine concern Dear Editor,

If Langley Township really wants to get tough on handicapped parking abusers, it should be looking at those people who keep the card in the glove box and then put it on the mirror, hoping no one sees them leave the vehicle, or those able-bodied people who have handicapped parents or relatives and choose to take one of those relatives for a ride to the store, then leave them in the vehicle, parked in the handicapped zone, with the handicapped sign on the rear view mirror. If the handicapped person is not leaving the vehicle, the vehicle should not be parked in the handicapped zone, pure and simple. Those spaces are for those with handicaps who are actually leaving their vehicle to shop or purchase services, not for able-bodied people who want guaranteed parking near the door.

ity plant or how to obtain the necessary knowledge to produce a quality plant, but it takes longer than a patient should suffer. Why not have a local medical marijuana dispensary where the person could obtain high-quality medicine to help with the suffering while all the Health Canada paperwork is accomplished and the plants grow to maturity? Also, not all marijuana is the same. Different varieties create different reactions in every individual. A dispensary could help them find the right strain, instead of them having to take the time to try to grow different varieties until they find the one that works for them. The dispensary also has edibles, which a lot of patients prefer over smoking marijuana. There again, the patient could try various edibles easily to find out what works best. Getting a medical card from Health Canada is not as simple as it should/ could be. A dispensary locally could save a lot of unnecessary pain and suffering for many patients. It would harm no one and help many.

The Langley Baseball All-Stars aren’t quite done being feted by the community. The team of 11- to 13-year-olds gathered at Langley Township hall on Monday night to be given certificates by Mayor Rick Green. “Thank you for making all of us want to stand up and cheer,” Green said. The all-stars went to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa., where they finished with a 2-2 record. They are the second Langley team in recent memory to head to the world

CAMPAIGN ORGANIZERS AND ELECTOR ORGANIZATIONS Campaign Organizers are groups or individual(s) that create and implement local government election campaigns that augment the election campaign of one or more candidates or elector organizations. Elector Organizations are organizations that endorse the election of a particular candidate.

The last day for establishment of an elector organization that wants to endorse a candidate in this election was August 14, 2011. Election Campaigns include, among other things, the promotion or opposition to the election of a candidate. Typically an election campaign involves communicating with the electorate through public appearances, advertising, brochures, signage, websites, mailing inserts, newsletters, displays, and exhibitions.

Longtime employee now runs his own restaurants Community involvement is key for a Langley fast food eatery owner. by Matthew Claxton

In the last few years, Ron Knight has seen the two McDonald’s franchises he owns change quite a bit. During construction of the Golden Ears Bridge, he had to move his restaurant located on 199A Street and 96th Avenue. It didn’t have to move far – it was just in the way of construction. An entirely new building was built on the same lot. Now Knight is watching as the finishing touches go up on his Walnut Grove location on 88th Avenue. “We’re getting there,” he said of the renovations, which have taken several months, and have radically changed the internal and external appearance of the building. “This location had been the same look for a lot of years,” Knight said. The Surrey-born busi-

McDonalds restaurants have always been involved in charities, dating back to the days of the chain’s creation. “That was one of Ray Kroc, the original founder, that was one of his things,” Knight said. For the local businesses, that means supporting various sports teams, and groups like Challenger Baseball and PuCKS. Challenger helps kids with cognitive and physical difficulties, while Langleybased PuCKS targets kids who can’t afford to play hockey. That’s in addition to fundraising for Ronald McDonald House. “It’s about committing to the community,” he said. Although he’s transplanted himself from Surrey to Langley over the past decade, Knight is also the chair of the Surrey Memorial Hospital Foundation. All his children were born there, he said. “It keeps me busy,” he said of his schedule bouncing between two restaurants and his other community commitments.

Hockey great opens new CIBC What’s in


Roxanne Hooper

For those who waded through my much longer column online about food happenings in Langley, you know I promised this week I’d talk about financial institution. Let me stop you before you let out that dreaded sigh or consider flipping the page. There’s been a lot of real cool things in the works among banks and credit unions in the Langleys, in the recent past and the imminent future. Let me start by telling you hockey legend Trevor Linden is coming to town. Linden will be at the grand opening of a CIBC, to meet and greet fans from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m., Oct. 1. Guests can also enjoy a barbecue and enter to a draw to win a signed and framed Trevor Linden Trevor Linden jersey, The entire celebration runs 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 20191 88th Ave., and will also feature a caricaturist, facepainting, a clown, and other family activities.

Envisioning a better world


And talking about financial institutions, I’d be remise in not mentioning the outstanding work of 25 employees from Envision Financial branches and regional office who recently spent a day away from “work” to get their hands dirty by helping Langley’s own Maples Discovery Garden with some much needed weeding,

Envision’s human resources advisors Lynne Aldridge and Brieann Spencer pruning, bush pulling, deadheading, and hoeing. It was part of Envision’s fifth annual Days of Caring. It’s just as the title implies. A group of employees go out into the community for one day and offer their labour to help an agency or non-profit organization in the community with physical labour that might not otherwise be possible – usually because of finances. In this time of financial hardship for most non-profits, this can be a pretty big deal. And it was a huge gift for Maples, said facilitator and groundskeeper Bruce Van Garderen. “These awesome and cheerful Envision Financial volunteers were a gift from heaven, working very diligently all day and dedicated to making our six-acre botanical gardens look so much more beautiful,” Van Garderen said. • Find out more about this recent community outreach endeavour, as well as a $50,000 donation from the Aldergrove Credit Union to help terminally ill people die in dignity by reading the full version of this column at:

How to win

ept. 30 will start a new tradition for the community when it hosts the inaugural Fraser Valley Cork and Keg Festival. What started as a trade show for the beer and wine industry has grown to include a public gathering that is sure to become an annual tradition for those who appreciate what expertise can do to grapes and hops and barley. The organizers are Lynette Faye, who lives in Willoughby, her business partner Janis Cox of Surrey, Christa Cantola of Langley, and Tracy McColl, who is doing the job long-distance from Prince George. They have experience in all the fields needed to pull together such an event, including in the beverage industry, human resources, finance and the public relations/communications sector. The impetus behind the Cork and Keg Festival was a desire to get the trade together in the Fraser Valley, where there is a healthy and growing beverage sector. “With the demographic shift in volume and revenue, it is certainly an important time to have a trade-and-media tasting in the Fraser Valley. We are hoping to see this part of the event bring in 400 people from across the Fraser Valley,” said Faye. And since they had the firms out for the trade show portion (which runs in the afternoon and is not open to the public), the women figured they would add a consumer component which runs 7-10 p.m. They had approached the Import Vintners and Spirits Association (IVSA) about having an event in the Fraser Valley. While “It is not always affordable or not able to host one, the association has supfeasible to travel to downtown ported this event and the Vancouver for tastings.” organizers are using the LYNETTE FAYE downtown Vancouver IVSA gallery of products. for tastings,” Faye “We are committed to said. bringing a more educational Invitations to take [and fun] component to the part were accepted by Langley firms such Fraser Valley.

I would love to see this as a destination festival.”

by Heather Colpitts angley City Mayor Peter Fassbender was arrested during the council meeting Monday evening. Langley Lodge’s Keystone cops collared the fugitive from fun, imposing a fine on the City’s top elected figure. He’s sentenced to join in the fun at the Langley Lodge fundraiser Puttin’ on the Ritz. On Oct. 1 Cascades Casino’s ballroom will turn back time for this Roaring ’20s-themed party. “We have quite the night arranged for our guests,” said Denni Bonetti, the event chair. Organizers have foregone some elements of the era, such as the bootleg liquor that was common but have on offer a variety show featuring Suzie and the Versatiles. People are encouraged to dress in the style of the era famous for speakeasies, Prohibition, gangsters and their molls, and jazz. “Boys in pin stripe suits and goils in flapper attire will be worth the effort,” she said.

ature may have produced them, but it takes the members of the Fraser Valley Rock and Gem Club to unlock the beauty of rocks and gems. See what area rock hounds can do at the annual show Sept. 24 and 25 at the Old Age Pensioners’ hall, 3015 273rd St. The weekend forecast isn’t pleasant, why not head indoors. From 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days, there will be an array of activities including a silent auction and door prizes. There are displays: rocks and gemstones, crystals, minerals, beads and more as well as gifts and lapidary supplies since the show is sure to convert more people to the joys of the art. The displays will include jewelry, soapstone carving and cabochons (gems polished but not faceted). Members have also lined up demonstrations in lapidary, silversmithing, copper work, gem tree making, beading, viking knitting, soap stone carving, and wire wrapping. What is viking knitting? It’s a type of weaving with metal wire to create beautiful designs. Check it out.

What can you do in 50 hours?

The earlybird deadline is fast approaching for any budding filmmakers to sign up for the 50 Hour Film Challenge put on by Surrey Little Theatre. “The challenge is similar to the popular 48 hour film challenge format with the addition of an extra 2 hours” said Langley’s Brigitte Seib, the organizer. “The concept began three years ago as a new initiative during Surrey Little Theatre’s 50th Season of Live Theatre – From Onstage to Onscreen. The 50 Hour Film Challenge was a huge success and gives the community another avenue in addition to our regular season of live theatre to express their creative side.” People have until Sept. 30 to get in on the reduced fee of $75. After that, it’s $100 per team. Then on Oct. 7 at 6 p.m., it’s time to press the ‘record’ button. Over the course of the following 50 hours, each team will disburse to their individual headquarters and head out to various locations throughout the Lower Mainland to write, shoot and edit a five-minute film that will include all the chosen surprise elements. On Sunday, Oct. 9 at 8 p.m. all teams will bring in their finished product to Surrey Little Theatre for their chance at prizes including a Best Film Top Prize of $500. Prizes will be awarded the following weekend on Saturday, Oct. 15 at a Gala Filmmakers Reception with screenings of all films open to the general public. Screening tickets are limited and will be by advance sales. Call 604576-8451 for tickets.

Talent competition

Auditions a blast – win or lose by Vanessa Dueck Special to the Langley Advance


ere I stand at six o’clock on a Tuesday in front of the Westin Bayshore, Vancouver. You would think that I was a real somebody, gearing up for a swanky vacation, but today I am just another number. Over the past two days, thousands of hopefuls have lined up at this hotel in downtown Vancouver wanting to be discovered at Canada’s Got Talent preliminary auditions. As Breakfast Television host Greg Harper walked through the lineup, talking to auditioners live on camera; those who were there for moral support had mixed feelings. A lady in front of me, there with her daughter, covered her face: “I’m skipping work right now,” she said, “I don’t want them to see me.” A British lady behind me turned her back to the camera: “I hope my husband doesn’t watch this. He thinks I’m in Campbell River puttin’ my boy to school.” Francesca, a 17-year-old from Campbell River, with a big sweater, string bean legs, and pixie-short hair, stood in front of me. When I asked her what her act was, she shrugged. “I’m an indie kid. I’m singing Fever with this,” she said, holding up a ukulele. She and I spotted an older woman wearing a sparkly black dress, with black and white feathers atop her head, in the hotel line-up. We assumed she would be dancing and definitely would get on TV. The lineup started moving at around quarter to 10, and the entire outside group was ushered inside, walking for what felt like forever through an empty maze while a batch of people before us sat in a crowded practice room.

A man behind me, going by the name of “Michael Would-not,” looked at me with a toothless grin. His curly, stringy brown hair and stained clothes made me wonder what he was all about. “I toured with BB King,” he told me. “He’s just a big teddy bear. No need to be intimidated by him. I toured with the Chili Peppers, too.” The fact he wouldn’t sing for me has me doubting what he has told me is true. Open auditions is a mixed bag of talent and crazy. As he talked to me, a woman in a full fuzzy white rabbit suit walked by like it was the most natural thing in the world. Soon, I was inside the holding room, filling out a form and receiving a number. The process so far had taken about five very enjoyable hours full of new friendships built on encouraging words, excitement, and shared experience. A new set of numbers was called, and I nervously followed a woman waving a Canadian flag up escalators to another waiting room. Inside the audition room were two people: one of the show’s producers and a cameraman. Five other people and I filed into a small, square room and attempted to confidently belt out our songs in a fervent effort to impress the producer. After all of the anticipation leading up to this minute, we got handed a paper telling us we’ll be contacted by Oct. 15 if we have made it to the next round of auditions. I felt shaky and slightly relieved I could finally take off my high heels and relax. Even if I don’t make it, Canada’s Got Talent auditions were more than enough fun for me... But still... I may wait by the phone… just in case. • A full version of this story is available online at

eople who love using garlic in recipes but are shocked at its cost in winter need to know that growing their own cloves is very do-able, even in small spaces. Where flower gardens are the only option, a few plants of garlic fit right in, because they deter aphids from infesting neighbouring plants. As well, garlic is completely hardy, is slug-resistant, and needs almost no watering because it makes most of its growth during our nine-month wet season. What it does demand is sunshine and well-drained, rich soil. Raised beds amended with compost or composted manure are a perfect garlic-growing environment. October is the ideal month to plant this crop, and bulb clusters will soon be available in local garden centres. Another useful source is farmers’ markets, where varieties are grown close to home. If you buy garlic from food stores to use as sets, you should be cautious. Some garlic bulb clusters may be treated with sprout inhibitors. Also, stores may sell varieties from warm climates, which are far less hardy than local garlic. There are three main kinds. The largest cloves come from hard-neck types, such as ‘Persian Star,’ ‘Music,’ or ‘Red Russian.’ Each of these these throw up a stiff, bulbil-producing stalks. Soft-neck types, such as ‘Greek White’ or ‘Chinese,’ have smaller, extremely long-keeping cloves and braidable stalks. Then there’s “serpent garlic,” which

Carole Wilson, a volunteer with the Community Harvest program, shows off some of the yellow plums she helped to harvest.


Fruit ready to pick by Matthew Claxton With a few weeks of harvest season left, the Langley Advance Community Harvest is still looking for donors. Now organized by the Langley Environmental Partners Society, the harvest is an effort to get fruit that would otherwise be wasted, and put it to good use. Stephanie Captein of LEPS, who is organizing the volunteer effort this year, said more than 700 pounds of food have been donated to the Langley Food Bank by the program this year. The program is based on the fact that many locals have fruit trees in their backyards.

A good sized apple or pear tree will produce far more fruit than one family can often use. In other cases, residents may be physically unable to pick their produce themselves. Donors can call on the services of the program, which will bring in volunteers and harvest the fruit and vegetables. The harvest is divided up three ways: the owner can take up to a third, the volunteer pickers can take up to a third, and the remainder goes to the Food Bank. Despite a damp and cool spring and summer, Captein said the fruit trees are ripening well. Late September is traditionally the time when many varieties of apples and pears are picked. To participate as a volunteer or donor, contact LEPS at 604-532-3515 or email

Bicycle safety

From left, Const. Darren Brandner, Special Const. Geoff Chrismas, Const. Craig Van Herk and Const. Rachel Rauch are members of the Langley RCMP bike patrol.

Bike patrol officers have tips and law on safety’s side

by Matthew Claxton


hen it comes to bike safety, the first thing Const. Craig Van Herk wants every rider to remember is the proper headgear: “Helmets, helmets, helmets,” said Van Herk, a bicycle patrol and bike trainer with the Langley RCMP. “It’s safe, it’s the law.” Van Herk should know. During an off-road ride, he hit a deep rut and slammed into the ground. His helmet cracked, but his head didn’t. Kids being back in school results in a lot of bikes on the roads. Van Herk and his fellow RCMP bike patrol officers have advice advice for riders, both children and adults, this fall. • Helmets – should not only be worn, they should be worn properly. “It seems to be a trend to wear it with the straps hanging down,” said Const. Rachel Rauch, a two-year veteran of the bike patrol. A helmet that’s not strapped on can fly off as you crash, and anyone can crash, no matter how experienced the rider. The helmet also won’t do any good if it’s dangling from the handlebars of the bike, something the officers have seen too often. • Maintain your bike – Most importantly, make sure the brakes work properly, Van Herk noted. Keeping bikes maintained is relatively simple, and if the bike needs new tires, brakes, or a tuneup, there are bike shops in virtually every neighbourhood in Langley, from Fort Langley to Aldergrove to the City. • Plan your route – Especially for young children who may not be confident in traffic, the shortest route to and from school may not be the safest. Van Herk recommends looking for routes that avoid high-traffic areas. • Be visible and predictable – Cyclists, whether six or 60 years old, have to stay on the right and ride with traffic. They should use hand signals – left arm straight out for a left turn, left arm up at a right angle for a right turn – to let motorists know where they’re going. Veering wildly into traffic is a good way to get into trouble. • Dress for the ride – Wearing bright, reflective clothes, but also avoid baggy pants that will get caught in the bike’s chain. Van Herk also pointed out a dangerous but common practice: wearing headphones or ear buds. Not only does it block sounds, but Van Herk recently saw a woman whose headphone cord snagged on her handlebars, causing her to crash. She wound up with some road rash. • Like parent, like child – “Parents should set a good

example,” said Special Const. Geoff Chrismas. The best way to instil good bike behaviour in a child is to model it. The Langley RCMP bike patrol is out all through September – in parks and out on the roads. It’s not unusual

for them to stop both cyclists and cars for violations. “We’re going slower, we can see more,” said Const. Darren Brandner. The bike patrol is also a bit more approachable than an officer in a car, so they often

have members of the public come up to talk to them. While the bike patrol will wind down a bit at the end of September, the officers and their bikes are available as needed all year round in Langley.

Junior B hockey

Kodiaks’ campaign underway It’s a clean slate for the Aldergrove Kodiaks, who opened their Pacific International Junior Hockey League schedule last night (Wednesday) at home against the Delta Ice Hawks.

Results from the game at Aldergrove Arena were not available when the Langley Advance went to press Wednesday afternoon. The Kodiaks play the second game of their 60contest schedule Saturday

against the host Port Moody Black Panthers. Aldergrove is looking to rebound after finishing dead last in the PIJHL’s Harold Brittain Conference with a 15-22-0-9 record in 2010/11.

Langley Rams quarterback Brandon Leyh threw for one touchdown and ran for another, leading his team to a 20-7 win over the Chilliwack Huskers Saturday. Langley Advance files

Meanwhile, Downey still hit paydirt on a 60-yard pass from pivot Brandon Leyh. Leyh finished the day completing six of 13 passes for 93 yards. Quarterback Jon Roney was good on four of five pass attempts for 75 yards. Roney showed well, after separating his shoulder in an intra-squad game during the Rams’ training camp. Against Chilliwack, Leyh had taken a couple of shots and was a bit banged up, so the Rams’ coaches put Roney into the game. “He’s fought back and he’s definitely going to be a asset for us,” Alamolhoda said of Roney. “He’s a smart football player who knows where to take the ball, and will also be a guy who has ability to do that.” Running back Kyle Albertini rambled 77 yards on nine carries, while Leyh carried the ball seven times for 54 yards and one touchdown. Rams’ kicker Nick Naylor booted a pair of field goals and a pair

of conversions to round out the visitors’ scoring. ••• On Saturday, the Rams host the 3-4 Westshore Rebels from Victoria. Note the afternoon kickoff time of 4 p.m. at McLeod Athletic Park Stadium.

Langley fans should see more of Downey this week. Rams media director Chris Swartz explained: “Victoria’s coaches are more experienced than the Huskers and will not want to give up valuable field position in an important game.” “They may not kick directly to Downey but will surely try to kick deeper, meaning that Downey will have more oppor-

tunity to return one or two, which is what Rams fans want to see,” Swartz said. This game is already the Rams’ final home game of the regular season. “We are calling it Fan Appreciation Day and will have a bunch of free giveaways for fans in attendance. The main prize will be a Seattle Seahawks’ club seat ticket package,” Swartz said. Also, the North Langley Barnes Harley Davidson will have its wheelie machine on location. The BCFC playoff race is wide open, and the Rams could, at least mathematically, still finish in first or second place and host a playoff game. Realistically, first or second is out of reach. The Rams could win their final three games but unless Nanaimo and Kelowna lose to Kamloops or Chilliwack – very unlikely – the locals will likely finish no higher than third. The best chance for a Langley home playoff game would be for the Rams to win the B.C. title. Then, they would host the Intergold Canadian semifinal versus the Prairie Football Conference champions Oct. 15 at MAP. FINAL WHISTLE: Downey was named Canadian Junior Football League Special Teams Player of the Week for his record-setting outing versus Kamloops Sept. 10.

This past Friday at the Coast Hotel and Convention Centre, Braidwood – a former member of the Canadian Football League’s Edmonton Eskimos – scored a split decision over fellow heavyweight “Big” Nate Nowalk during the Clash at the Cascades 11 amateur boxing show. Braidwood’s run-in with the law didn’t tarnish another successful boxing show, put on by the City Boxing Club. City Boxing manager Dave Allison said the “biggest crowd

yet” took in the action, despite the local club having no boxers on the card. Allison said “the date Sept. 16 was tough” because all of City Boxing’s active pugilists are school age and some were just back from holiday or their summer jobs, and had just returned to the gym. “Also it’s back-to-school time and this is always a busy time for young students,” Allison said. For example, Brookswood Secondary student Mat Andreatta returned from holiday in late July and was scheduled to box but his bout fell through. The City Boxing gym is now full with youngsters including Matt Leclair 15, Dustin Oster,

17, Hunter Meneghello, 17 and Vince St Peirre, 21, who attends Trinity Western, all back for the season. The club is planning a show for Wednesday, Oct. 12. Host City Boxing will be well represented, Allison said. Locally, the Port Kells Boxing Club had several boxers at last Friday’s show with Inder Bhabba, 16, winning his first bout over Mission’s Brennan Paterson, 15, and Russ Laverly, 18, from Port Kells losing a split decision to 17-year-old Ibrahim Ibrahim. Ibrahim’s only loss came to Andreatta, and they are scheduled to rematch Oct. 12. Allison says the theme of

the next show will be youth, “since we have so many promising youngsters in the British Columbia Combative Sports Association.” Another match to look for will be a re-match between Surrey’s Sonny Sandhu, 18, and Jamie Saraj, 17. In one of the best matches on this past Friday’s show, Saraj lost a split decision. The interesting point on this match is Sandhu is a kickboxer and Saraj a mixed martial arts (MMA) fighter, and they both put up a great show in their first boxing match, Allison reported.
