Fire cause probed

The cause of an early-morning fire in the Patterson family’s home in Langley City last week was quickly determined. Captain Dave Sanders of the City fire department said it may have been an electrical short to the dryer, or it may have been something knocked over by the cat, onto the furnace. Whatever happened, it quickly started a small fire that pumped out thick black smoke. A few minutes later, the upstairs smoke alarm went off. • More online

With both City and Township mayoral candidates under one roof, it was no surprise that issues affecting the two Langleys came up at Tuesday night’s debate. Moderated by Global TV morning news anchor Steve Darling, the debate was hosted by a capacity crowd at the monthly meeting of the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce at the Cascades Convention Centre. Ron Abgrall, running against incumbent City mayor Peter Fassbender, said he wanted to give voters a choice. “Because there was no one else to take on the challenge, I thought in good conscience the only thing I could do was take on the challenge myself,” Abgrall said. After their opening remarks, the candidates were tossed four questions by the Chamber, the same questions seen at mass debates in both City and Township. Then it was time for questions collected from the audience. The candidates were asked about leadership style and consensus building. “I believe in allowing people to become leaders in their own right,” said Township candidate Jack Froese. He said he’s been in business all his life and has learned from that. Incumbent Mayor Rick Green also looked to his business background, as well as his time on the Delta council. “I’ve served on many organizations and I’ve never had difficulties with my leadership style,” he said. He added that it was possible there were those who didn’t think it was acceptable. Kositsky said he was asked what he’s passionate about by Tara Teng, currently Miss Canada and a Langley native. He said it was “helping

others achieve their goals.” Abgrall said he would be transparent. When asked about three projects the City and Township could work on together, several candidates mentioned the items where the two already cooperate. Kositsky pointed to everything from parks to road safety and emergency planning, while Green said that work on transit and transportation and community planning could be made more cooperative. Froese talked about his campaign plank of holding annual strategic planning sessions that would involve the City, Township, school board, MLAs and MP. Fassbender pointedly mentioned the $100,000 in annual funding the City provides for McLeod Athletic Park, as well as adding that fire and rescue services could work together more. On what they hope to accomplish in a single three-year term, Kositsky had the goal of creating a regional arts centre. Abgrall seconded that idea. “This community can only support one arts centre,” Kositsky said, saying he didn’t care if it was in the City or Township physically.

Green wants to solve transit issues and get moving on light rail that would reach from Surrey to Chilliwack. Froese said he really wants to improve communication with all levels of government and other municipalities. At the end, given a chance for a “free for all” with the ability to interject, each candidate instead thanked their supporters, the voters in general, and talked about what Langley means to them. “This experience has been one of the greatest experiences of my life,” said political newcomer Froese. “It has been a tough and trying three years,” said Green, but he said he has loved it and has accomplished a lot in office. Kositsky talked briefly about “false accusations” against council, but said his main goal was to keep building the community and to make it better in the future. “My heart and my passion for this community is for us to get along,” said Ron Abgrall. Fassbender, the last speaker of the night, briefly teared up when he thanked his wife for her support during his nine years in office.

Roots of first governor celebrated Non-endorsement

a campaign issue

The annual celebration of the birth of B.C. will have a South American flavour this year.

An endorsement that never existed has a school trustee candidate crying foul.

by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

The fur trade, the gold rush, steel drums, and Caribbean food. Those seemingly disparate ingredients will be merged for this year’s Douglas Day, which will have a special focus on the birthplace of the first governor of the colony of British Columbia. James Douglas was born in what is now the independent nation of Guyana. Like much of Canada, it was then a British possession. Douglas’s father was a Scottish trader, his mother a local Creole woman. Douglas would later make his mark as one of the top officials with the Hudson’s Bay Company, and then as a governor of both British Columbia and the separate colony of Vancouver Island. It was on Nov. 19, 1858 that Douglas, standing in Fort Langley, read the proclamation that created British Columbia as a Crown colony. Just a few decades later it would join Canada as the westernmost province. In honour of Douglas’s Guyanese roots, the Guyanese Canadian Cultural Association will be taking part in this year’s events on Nov. 19. at the Fort Langley National Historic Site. According to the Fort’s special events coordinator Gerry Borden, the original plan was to have a low-key ceremony this year, due

to the municipal elections taking place on the same day. But the Guyanese Canadian association was excited to take part and make it a big event. “It’s turned into a big party,” said Borden. The Fort even got a letter of thanks, through the association, from Guyanese Prime Minister Samuel A. Hinds. This is not the first connection between the small South

American nation and the Fort. In 2005, local artist Lois Hannah created two matching bronze statues of Douglas, with one erected at the Fort and the other shipped to Guyana to his birthplace. This year’s celebrations at the Fort will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and will include food, a steel drum band, folk dancing, and a re-enactment of the original proclamation.

With snow in the forecast, Langley Township is ready to deploy the plows and the sanding trucks. “It’s going to be one of those years again, with this La Nina driving the forecasters crazy,” said Terry Veer, manager of roads in the Township. The municipal government began testing its snow removal equipment in August and September, along with training and maintenance. The Township also believes it has a good stock of salt laid in and enough ordered from local suppliers. The Township hasn’t done a major upgrade of its fleet of plows and salting

and sanding trucks this year, but it did a big upgrade in 2009. After the winter of 2008, citizens demanded better plowing, and the fleet was beefed up with more vehicles. This year, a few vehicles are being replaced or upgraded. The public information system will be the same as last year. During major snow or ice storms, or local flooding, residents will be able to call the Storm Response Information Hotline at 604-514-HELP (4357) 24 hours a day. Updates on plowing and other information will be on the “Storm Response” page online, under “Quick links” at www.tol.ca. Langley City has also readied its snow clearing equipment, which consists of six vehicles. Both communities will concentrate on major through roads during early stages of a snowfall, including 200th Street, Fraser Highway, and 16th Avenue. Residential roads will have to wait until primary and secondary roads are cleared.

Fields get new funds

Patricia Hall’s demise will benefit Aldergrove’s future generations. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A hefty cheque will help build sports fields for Aldergrove youths, but it heralds the demise of one of Langley’s oldest neighbourhoods. “Alas, Patricia Hall, owned and operated by its community, is no more,” said Brian Thomason as he handed over $41,000 to the Township last week. Thomason, with Rotary, said money from the sale of the hall will now support the rest of the community. With Bill Ede of Aldergrove Youth Soccer, who brought a cheque for $9,000, they donated $50,000 towards the creation of fields at South Aldergrove Park. “It’s the closing chapter of the Patricia Hall legacy,” Thomason said. Patricia was once a neighbourhood south of Aldergrove, with its own hall and its own local identity. However, the hall has been closed for years, and the area is now usually known as South Aldergrove. It was the wish of the community group that ran the building that proceeds from its sale be used to benefit the community.

person. Results from the post mortem are to be released as soon as it is complete. Keepers and other staff were shocked by the sudden death of the animal, who would have been four in December. Henderson said he would have been almost a preteen in human years. “Obviously, we get very attached to our animals,” Henderson said.

RCMP officers test junior players’ courage, mettle

One player called going down the side of the Langley Events Centre ‘the closest to death moment I’ve ever had in my life.’

Nothing says “team unity” like taking turns rappelling down the side of a huge hockey arena. That’s what hockey players with Team Canada East found out Nov. 2, when they took part in a teambuilding event, coordinated by RCMP officers from the Lower Mainland’s Emergency Response Team. Canada East was preparing for the World Junior A Challenge, which ran Nov. 7-13 Langley Events Centre (the team from Eastern Canada finished with the silver medal after losing 4-2 to Canada West in this past Sunday’s championship game at the LEC). The hockey players, most of whom are 18, donned protective police vests (dubbed “the beast” by ERT members) over their warm up gear for a threepart endurance test, set by the ERT members. The youths climbed off the edge of the LEC roof to rappel down a four-story wall. After that, they used a 42 pound battering ram to force open a barricaded door. Then after donning more protective gear, they shot paper targets, and practised shooting under pressure in

With heavy RCMP equipment – including a battering ram – in tow, Canada East team members hustled to the next station at the Langley Events Centre’s parking lot. a mock scenario. The day was capped off by a contest between ERT members and the hockey players, as they struggled to be the first one to pull ERT’s 25,000 pound armoured vehicles (TAVs) across a finish line. “These kids are from several different club teams, and many don’t know each other,” Canada East assistant coach Jason Nobili said. “This is a great opportunity for our guys to work through some challenging obstacles together,

and make some great lifelong memories.” He noted that the players needed to come together as a team, prior to the start of the tournament. “The officers are really engaging in the activities with the kids,” Nobili said. “They’ve been very supportive, and they’re celebrating our players’ achievements with them.” David Friedman, 18, of Toronto, squeezed the rope as hard as he could when he went over the edge of the wall. He called the experience “the closest to death moment I’ve ever had in my life.” Of the ERT police officer holding the rope, Frieman noted it was the first time he’d ever put his life in another person’s hands. In addition to Canada West and East teams, the Czech Republic, Russia, Sweden, and the United States took part in last week’s junior A hockey tournament.

The Langley RCMP would like to speak to a “person of interest” in an investigation into shoplifted meat. On Nov. 5 at about 2:30 p.m., a man walked out of the Aldergove Safeway with meat, without swiping it through the checkout. The suspect is in his 30s or 40s, weighs about 190 pounds, and was wearing a grey and black jacket and grey jeans, said Cpl. Holly Marks of the Langley RCMP. He ran on foot south on 276th Street, along the Aldergrove-Abbotsford border. Another man caught on security camera allegedly used the kindness of a store clerk to try to break into her truck. On Nov. 14 at 4:30 p.m., a man walked into a liquor store in the 26400 block of 32nd Avenue in Aldergrove. He asked an employee for a coat hanger, saying he had locked his keys in his car, and he

Robbery

Robbery duo sought Two thieves held up a Brookswood store last week, say RCMP. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

The Langley RCMP are looking for two young men who held up a convenience store, apparently armed with a can of mace. On Nov. 15 at around 2 a.m., the men entered the 7-Eleven at the corner of 200th Street and 40th Avenue, wearing all black clothing and with masks on, said Cpl. Holly Marks of the Langley RCMP. They jumped over the counter and took cigarettes, lottery tickets, and two cash registers with a small amount of money in each.

Police would like to talk to this man about a recent holdup at a 7-Eleven store. One of the men was holding a small can that may have been a pepper spray or mace container. Marks said the men, both Caucasian, then ran east on 40th Avenue. Police are asking residents to call if they recognize the man in the photo, calling 604-532-3200, or to remain anonymous, call CrimeStopers at 1-800-2228477.

Democracy more than just voting This Saturday, the candidates will be biting their nails, while voters file in and out of the polling places. In the last few weeks, we’ve heard politicians exhorting us to get out and vote, and about how it’s the cornerstone of our democratic process. That may be true, but a cornerstone does not a complete structure make. Democracy happens – or fails to happen – every day of the year. It happens most frequently in the interactions between council members and school trustees as they wrangle over budgets and bylaws. It happens when one person stands up to complain, and when hundreds march in protest. It happens in the letters pages of this and many other newspapers, and on blogs and forums, where people vent their spleens about those numbskulls running things. It’s not pretty. It’s not neat and tidy, and it doesn’t always come with a Hollywood ending. (The dirty secret of democracy is that sometimes you get the wrong solution even when the process goes right.) So vote, if you want a say in who’s going to run the show for the next three years. Vote because you truly believe in a candidate, or because you can’t stomach the thought of that other guy getting in; they’re both valid reasons to mark an X. But continue participating after election day. Learn what you can. We humbly suggest that your local papers can keep you up to date, but you should also talk to your neighbours, your councillors and mayor. One of the best things about local politicians is that they actually return calls. Learn how your civic government works, especially if you need it to do something for you. Knowing how to sign up to speak before the council, or about the difference between a rezoning and a building permit, can save you a lot of grief. There are neater, cleaner, more troublefree ways of running a government than democracy. The trouble is, most of them are dictatorships. – M.C.

Stanley Cup riot

Long wait for justice Dear Editor,

The Vancouver riot was way back on June 15, 2011. Jump to November 2011, when the first trial for one of the rioters arrested for his or her involvement in the riot was held. The Vancouver police department took hundreds of hours at the expense of our taxpayers’ money. The police wanted to be sure to have solid cases against the rioters caught on video tape breaking the law: the rioters running into a store then out of the same store with stolen items on or under their arms; the rioters damaging cars or set the cars on fire; the rioters damaging property of the businesses that had the misfortune to be located where the riot took place. The first trial finally took place. The accused person did not receive any type of punishment for his or her crime or crimes committed during the riot. Nothing

was done to make this person be ashamed of the crime he or she is caught doing on the video tape during the riot. How much worst will the next riot be when the rioters know they can do anything they want to do because they know nothing will be done to them? Where is the justice for the people who during the riot had (at least, psychological) harm done to them, lost property, and lost the ability to earn a living for a period of time do to the riot. Many of the people who work at these businesses have lost their right to feel safe at all times. Where is their justice? Is this what passes for Canadian justice? Where is society’s justice?

not bear false witness” – especially not to get someone else into trouble. By all accounts, this is exactly what Mayor Green did in his bizarre Brownshak story. What is sadder, though, is not that he may have made an error of judgment – God knows, we all do that – but that Mr. Green recently seems to be blaming everyone else for bringing it up. At the same time, I’m not sure many Township councillors fare much better. A main focus of Early Childhood Education is teaching little ones how to get along. It seems as though several of our current councillors missed that class. Some of the antics reported from our council chamber would not be tolerated in kindergarten. So my question is, which among all the candidates will we trust to set a good example for our children and grandchildren – and to make good choices for their future and that of the whole community?

Local builder tops in technical excellence: GVHBA Mitsui Homes has been honoured by its peers in construction. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A new style of homebuilding is winning awards for Mitsui Homes. The local builder took home the award for technical excellence from the Greater Vancouver Homebuilders Association (GVHBA) annual Awards of Excellence gala this month. Mitsui Homes, based on

a 12-acre site in Langley’s Port Kells industrial area, started as an offshoot of a Japanese home-building giant. Mitsui began life in 1994 as a supplier of materials to its Japanese parent firm. In Japan, Mitsui is one of the largest wood-based homebuilders in operation. The Langley offshoot sent more than 100 million board feet of lumber and eight million square feet of OSB panels back to Japan every year. But it eventually began to develop local specialty services, and in 2005 it added local construction

work to its agenda. It doesn’t do “stick built construction,” the traditional method of building a home from the ground up, piece by piece. “Typically, we pre-fabricate as much as possible,” said senior vice president David Fisher. Fisher, who accepted the GVHBA award, said the technique is becoming more common. “We can do it to a factory-controlled standard,” said senior vice president David Fisher, who accepted the award for the company.

One of Mitsui Homes’ recent projects in Richmond uses its prefabricated building technology.

Firm has expanded its role …continued from page A15

Britco is another Langley firm that uses pre-fabrication, but much of their product is modular structures, noted Fisher. “But it’s not the prescription for all solutions,” he said. “That’s where we come in.” Mitsui will build walls, stairs, roof trusses and sometimes floors in its factory. Once on site, they have another technical specialization that helped win them an award. They have a technique for installing seismic anchors in four to six storey tall wood-framed buildings. The anchors are metal rods that attach the wooden structure to the concrete foundation to keep it stable in the event of an earthquake. “Positioning these anchors is very difficult,” said Fisher. If they’re installed in the wrong place, they may have to be cut off and moved. With pre-designed and pre-fabricated walls, it’s easier to position them properly, Fisher said. The type of pre-building done by Mitsui is still a bit of a novelty in North America, where it’s been

T

he many faces of Margaret Thorpe will be seen on and off stage in the Trinity Western University’s upcoming production of The Farndale Christmas Carol. “It’s a play within a play,” said Thorpe, a Langley Secondary grad, who is pursuing an undergraduate theatre/ music double major at TWU and playing a big part in this festive farce. What do you get when you combine three ghosts, ruthless rival actresses, snappy showtunes, a bearded lady, and a handful of tinsel? The Farndale Christmas Carol, which opens Tuesday. “So you have the story everyone loves, but it’s told by the most accident-prone group of actresses you can imagine,” Thorpe elaborates. She’ll play an ailing actress who must perform roles like Bob Cratchit through a suffocating neckbrace. “For the Farndale actresses, chaos is an art form. Pretty much everything that could go wrong does,” Thorpe said. “It’s been a treat discovering the humour in the story of Scrooge, and enjoying some holiday stress relief, but at the same time telling the story of these well-meaning women who aren’t

In addition to the quirky characters she’s playing, a few of her other talents will be evident when she plays piano and sings, and behind the scenes the costume whiz has assisted with outfitting all the performers. Her passion for the arts should come

angley Players have a packed week ahead, hosting audition two days in the midst of performing extra showings of their current production Waiting for the Parade. The John Murrell play tells of five Calgary women and how their lives are affected as they survive the wait for soldiers to return home from the Second World War. Audiences enjoy the dancing and music of the era and gaining a fresh appreciation of the lives of Canadian women during the war, said producers Leslie Gaudette. “You will leave the theatre celebrating all the wonderful women who went before us and faced an unknown future with courage and humour,” she added. The play will be held over for two extra showings on Friday and Saturday, Nov. 25 and 26 at 8 p.m. each night. Tickets are $15 and available by calling 604-534-7469 or emailing reservations@langleyplayers.com. In the meantime, the Brookswood-based drama club is also hosting auditions for its spring production, The Stillborn Lover, which will run mid-April to May of next year. They’re on the hunt for seven actors, men and women ranging in age, to play in the story created by award-winning writer Timothy Findley and set in the 1970s when a Canadian diplomat is suddenly recalled to Ottawa. The open auditions take place Wednesday, Nov. 23, from 7 to 10 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 26, from noon to 3 p.m. at the Langley Playhouse, 4307 200th St. Those interested in auditioning are asked to bring a resume and headshot, and prepare for a cold reading of the script.

At First Sight, a play by Anne Pie, was set to close Saturday, Nov. 19, but Savoy said its popularity with people was motivation enough to extend the run. “The shows have been selling out, which tells us that when our audiences leave this feel-good play they are telling their friends to reserve their tickets right away so they don’t miss out on all the fun.

he Langley Community Chorus will have some familiar faces in new places when it performs during the holiday season. The holiday show, called So This is Christmas, is the group’s musical gift to the community for this holiday season. “Anita Comba was our very personable and accomplished accompanist last year and has moved into the music director’s position,” explained Illa Stearns, the chorus president. She took the reins after Martin Anderle moved east. “She is so enthusiastic in leading and teaching our members in rehearsal,” said Stearns. “She really ‘gets into it’ using dramatic gestures and jumping about in front of us. Such energy. She is very entertaining and much loved by chorus mem-

bers.” The chorus will show off that energy during Christmas shows. Another big change for the group is Kerry Querns as the accompanist. Many in the community will know Querns from her years as an educator. “She retired recently and wanted something to keep her a bit busy. Well, we are very glad she chose chorus,” Stearns said. “We are so enjoying her very humourous straightforwardness and choral experience.” The talents of these two women as well as all the other members will be on display to enjoy. “Anita and Kerry are going to be providing some entertainment of their own at our Christmas concerts

I have worked hard to stay connected with citizens and become familiar with their issues throughout all of Langley.

Given the opportunity to represent Langley I commit to the following: • To work with Mayor and Council to improve the consultation process to be more inclusive of citizens and to find solutions as to how we can do a better job of engaging the public in our long term community planning.

• Seek more designated off leash opportunities for dogs and their owners. • To work towards keeping Langley a healthy safe community for you and your family.

Masters” New era for TWU’s Alloway Library “Dutch PAINT SPECIAL as it upgrades its online tool set $ 29900

since 1977

3 ROOMS (including paint)

The beginning of the academic year in the fall of 2011 markeds a new era for Trinity Western University’s Norma Marion Alloway Library, as staff at the Langley university go live with a new computer-based system that manages all aspects of the library’s operations. The SirsiDynix Symphony integrated library system provides a whole new interface designed to meet library users’ needs wherever they are – in or out of the library – and includes a powerful, user-friendly, web-based discovery portal known as eLibrary. “This is a good news story,” said university librarian Ted Goshulak. “Something to celebrate at this time of year.” Library staff have been working since the early spring with SirsiDynix technicians to implement all the behind-thescenes work required to launch both the new eLibrary interface for public use and the internal staff client software. Staff underwent hours of web-based and tele-conferenced training sessions to gain familiarity with Symphony’s fea“This is a good news story. tures. Something to celebrate at “It truly is a miracle that the new this time of year.” system is finally TED GOSHULAK becoming a reality,” said Shirley Lee, Alloway Library’s systems librarian and project coordinator. “The change could inspire fear and relief at the same time for those of us who have come to know the former Horizon operating system.” Comprehensive features provided by SirsiDynix Symphony are designed to allow Alloway Library to highlight the breadth and depth of the university’s collections, to serve researchers’ ever-growing information needs. TWU is operating under the concept that today’s library users expect the same speedy and relevant search results, added content, and social networking features at the library that they enjoy elsewhere. Alloway Library’s eLibrary features include: • Easy-to-use searching, with full-text and unlimited index searches • New navigation tools that make it easier to move through lists of search results • Online solutions allowing library users to manage their library accounts, place and manage holds and renew items on loan • The ability to maintain and manage search results with MyLists • Enhanced record descriptions that provide more than just a call number. Now, a search in the catalogue provides features such as book cover images, reviews and even a look inside the item. • Flexible hold policies, with the ability to create and better manage requests for library material. • The BookMyne app for iPhone users makes library research truly mobile. Coinciding with the introduction of the new operating system, and in response to user requests for access to more resources for extended periods of time, circulation policies

Leadership • Respect • Experience

have been overhauled. Changes include increasing the number of items that grad students can borrow, and permitting up to four online renewals for most items. Some existing services, such as advance due-date notices and low fine rates, remain unchanged. Because Symphony is a customizable and configurable platform, changes can be made in eLibrary features and appearance as library staff continue to refine it to meet their users’ needs.

“I am very proud of this production, and as it’s a small theatre company that’s producing it…”

New Homes Registry keeps H o m e b u y e r s I n f o r m e d

Savvy homebuyers are taking advantage of free access to the New Homes Registry to stay informed. This helpful, easy-to-use, online resource is available from the provincial Homeowner Protection Office (HPO) website. Prospective homebuyers are using the registry to make more informed purchasing decisions.

Langley’s Derek Metz plays Denver alongside Anna Cummer (Kim) a Vancouver theatre production of Snowman, which wraps Saturday.

Theatre

Homebuyers, as well as realtors, lawyers, local governments, and others can quickly check the residential builder licensing and warranty status of a new home or a new home under construction.

Repeat performance

The New Homes Registry provides free access to find out if a home has a policy of home warranty insurance and is built by a Licensed Residential Builder, or whether it is built without home warranty insurance. Homebuyers can obtain valuable information such as the name and contact number of the warranty provider, the builder’s warranty number and whether an owner-built home can be legally offered for sale.

erek Metz enjoyed playing the character of Denver in Greg MacArthur’s play Snowman so much, that he’s taken on the same role again – this time in a Granville Island theatre. The former Brookswood Secondary student earned a 2003 Jessie Richards Award for best actor the first time he took on this role. And he’s aspiring to repeat history, as he and the team at the Revue Stage prepare to bring the curtain down on Snowman this Saturday night. “I am very proud of this production…” said 41-yearold Metz, who only left Langley to study acting in Montreal’s National Theatre

Every new home built for sale by a Licensed Residential Builder in British Columbia is protected by mandatory third-party home warranty insurance. Better known as 2-5-10 home warranty insurance, this coverage includes: two years on labour and materials, five years on the building envelope (including water penetration), and 10 years on the structure. It’s the strongest system of construction defect insurance in Canada. The New Homes Registry allows homebuyers to search online at their convenience for both single detached homes and multi-unit homes registered with the HPO after November 2007. For free access to the New Homes Registry visit the Homebuyers section of the HPO website at www.hpo.bc.ca.

School of Canada with a lifelong dream of acting. Noteworthy, Metz isn’t the only familiar face in this Revue production. He’s joined on the roster by director Craig Hall. Eight years ago, in his first project with Rumble Productions, Hall directed Snowman. And now, after serving as Rumble’s artistic producer for the past six years, his experience with the company is coming full circle as Snowman will mark Hall’s last major production before he moves on to become the artistic director of Calgary’s Vertigo Theatre. While this new production of Snowman may be a walk down memory lane for some, the creative team is intentionally taking a new approach. For instance, rehearsals were held in Stanley Park, surrounding the team with as much wilderness as Vancouver could muster in an attempt to imitate the isolation of the small town featured in the story. For that reason, it seemed fitting for Metz, who played Kevin in the Arts Club’s production of The Patron Saint of Stanley Park. That production, held about this time last year, marked Metz’s return to the stage after a few years away to raise a family and work as a bus driver. And he’s loving being back on stage. Rumble Productions presents this play featuring the characters of Denver (Metz) and Marjorie, drifters who have found a routine: find a town, find an apartment, get jobs, walk around, make friends, and stay for a month or a year before moving on. Hoping for a little hometown support, Metz said response to this year’s rendition of the Snowman has been “glowing.” TIckets are $15 at vancouvertix.com.

ELECT MEL KOSITSKY

Council hired team builders - but they said:

Mel Kositsky for Mayor BP@Q MB?EN

ACSJJU@Q WPPGPOKJ WP IWOVP X HJ SJFJLPQ VJWKJSQHGT TSGULGTVJQ@

Langley Township is my home and has been since the mid70s when I returned to the West Coast from my first newspaper job in Medicine Hat following university. As a trained journalist I decided community news was the way for me and I settled in Langley to work for the local newspapers. I also settled in Langley to become involved in the horse industry and have been honored by the Horse Council of BC for promoting the equine industry through my horse columns and cable television shows called “Along for the Ride”. Langley is truly ‘the horse capital of BC.’ In 1993, after serving two terms on the board of the Langley Chamber of Commerce, I became interested in Local Government and ran for council. I have since won six straight elections and have been your councillor for 18 years.

“On Saturday, November 19th I ask for your support to become the next Mayor of Langley Township.” Leading a local government requires many skills - not the least is listening to a variety of opinions and bringing council and residents together to make collective and informed decisions. That is the way that municipal councils work best. They are not a “one man show” as we have witnessed during the past three years.

“Rick Green has broken the trust with council, staff and the community ...and it can never be repaired.” Good government requires co-operation and compromise in order to get things done. The community provides direction on priorities and the council as a whole decides how best to spend limited financial resources to build a healthy and safe community for residents of all ages. My leadership skills have been proven by being elected to serve on many boards, committees and task forces by my local government peers. I am well prepared to represent Langley Township with other orders of government. Langley Township has a bright future ahead and as your next Mayor I will lead a council that will focus on what is best for our comunity and restore TRUST in the Mayor’s office.

More 'non-truths'

Council 'misled' again The Lidstone report revealed facts about Green’s mishandling of private information; but to date he has not apologized to those mentioned in the documents that he claims were stolen from his office. But there are other episodes that are suspicious according to two members of council. Clr. Ferguson says “the mayor was not truthful about the resignation of the mayor’s finance committee.” According to Ferguson, the

~

day before a scheduled meeting the Mayor announced he had just received a letter of resignation from three members of the public that he had appointed to the committee. But Clr. Fox says a copy of the letter was left on the photocopier by the mayor’s office several days prior. “Why did Green not tell the truth? Perhaps he was embarrassed about the committee’s failure to cut the taxes and come up with the 0-0-0 he promised,” said Fox.

In the first year of the term, Langley Township Council agreed to bring in help to assist with setting goals and team building. “We tried to work with the new mayor,” said Clr. Mel Kositsky. “The intent was to engage a consultant/facilitator to help bring the Council together.” Council hired Gerald Berry the long-time CAO of Nanaimo, and Allison Habkirk a former mayor of Central Saanich. They were instructed to: * 6$58$3 9:$ +798$; 1.+ "$;%&.;8/82898$; &# 9:$ 01'&" 1.+ ,&7.,82 1.+ "$58$3 9:$ ,&007.8,198&. /$93$$. 9:$ 01'&") 9:$ ,&7.,82) ;91-) 1.+ 9:$ %7/28, 8. 1 3&"4;:&%( In general terms, the scope of work of the consultants was to focus on providing services to the Township which would facilitate the building of a positive working relationship amongst the elected council members and between the council and the senior management team. But after interviewing the mayor Rick Green, the firm issued this statement in a January 2011 special report to council:

“Given the Mayor’s open rejection of the fundamental principles of shared and collective decision-making, it is our conclusion that holding a working session to address the issues at this stage in this council’s term is unlikely to produce a satisfactory outcome.” Council members were disturbed and concerned that the term could get worse instead of better. When

asked to comment on the consultant’s recommendations, Clr. Richter said she was surprised at the report’s blunt language. “It’s kind of refreshing, though, to hear

Report says Green rejects fundamental principles of collective decision making.

a consultant say, ‘Don’t waste your money,” she said. Other councilors had hoped that the term would have had a more positive start. Clr. Long said the workshop should have taken place as soon as the new council was elected. “I wished the Mayor had approached the term with more positive ideas, rather than just doing his own thing,” Long said. Things did get far worse when the Lidstone Report clearly showed that Green had broken the trust of Council in the mysterious letter scandal. Lidstone’s report concluded that Green misled several times, misrepresented the facts, and that his actions were dishonest.

E:JJ=@8 8A97J ;A97I<:>

View of democratic process 'distorted'

Veteran Township of Langley councillor and mayoral candidate Mel Kositsky is concerned about Rick Green’s view of democracy. “According to Green’s website, Green is convinced that he was ‘voted in’ last term to change the minds of the council. I disagree,” says Kositsky. Councillors are elected on their own merit - by every citizen who votes. How can Green justify such a concept?” Kositsky said. Green’s website boldly states “...I was elected on a promise of change ....but they (council) steadfastly refused to change” Frustrated with the council’s fierce independence, Green now

has a slate of running mates, seeking to control council. “It is impossible for a council to function for the benefit of the citizens, if the mayor has a distorted view of democracy,” says Kositsky.” We (council) tried to bring in professionals to explain how the democratic process can work, but Green refused to listen or to adopt a leadership style of collective decision making.” “He seems to believe that his way is the only way. That is why I’m running for mayor - to see respect for democracy returned to the council table, and to provide positive leadership to the council that the people elect,” says Kositsky.

Mayor refused to cut budget

Green’s 2009 finance committee included two members of council and three members of the public chosen only by Green. Other councillors were not allowed to attend the finance meetings for reasons not yet explained by Green. The two appointed councillors, Ferguson and Richter objected to the closed meetings and Ferguson accused Green of arranging other secret meetings without them. But by the time the full budget meetings began, the committee could not produce a zero tax increase - instead they proposed to borrow from utilities and dip into reserves. “Council was quite concerned of the legality of using utility funds in such a manner,” said

Clr. Ward. “So the plan was thrown out.” At the time of passing the budget, Green was asked by one council member if he would suggest cuts rather than vote against the budget as mayor. But Green refused to offer any suggestions. Green has voted against every budget in his term, but according

to Clr. Ferguson, he still likes to take credit for the popular projects in the Township. “The fact is he voted against parks, artificial turf in Aldergrove, the LEC, Aldergrove core planning, expansion of police and fire services, water and sewer.” Green has voted against bringing business and growth to the community,” said Ferguson.

Langley Lodge

Volunteering became a family affair at seniors lodge

The Anglin family’s contributions to the seniors’ facility date back to the 1970s.

Long time Langley Lodge volunteers, Myrt and Stan Anglin, were honoured in a room naming ceremony at the Complex Care home. Family and friends of the couple gathered together at Langley Lodge on Nov. 5 for a special tea in memory of the

numerous hours dedicated to the lodge by the couple. They volunteered from 1974 to 2006, and gave generously of their time and love to make Langley Lodge a great place to live. “We are pleased to celebrate the passion and dedication of Myrt and Stan Anglin,” said Terry Metcalfe, the Langley Care Society president. “They were inspiring volunteers for the organization, and I think that it is important to note that their legacy continues with their children, grandchildren

Langley Lodge

Stan and Myrt Anglin volunteered at Langley Lodge from 1974 to 2006. Their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren continue to help at the complex care facility. and great-grandchildren.” Hulda Anglin’s (Gran to the family) admission to Langley Lodge in 1984 further reinforced Myrt and Stan’s commitment to the charity. A tradition of volunteering, which by that time was already well established, has led to four generations continuing with their dedication to Langley Lodge residents. “My father served on the board of directors, pushed wheelchairs and generally kept his nose in all activities of the Lodge,” said Mona Anglin. “Many people will remember that my mom loved to fry the onions while my husband Al oversaw the cooking at fund-raising activities. My mom was absolutely thrilled when she received the volunteer of the year award at Langley Lodge,” recalled Mona. No job is too big or too small for this family. The Anglin children (Mona, Gerry and Lori) continue to volunteer through all aspects of the lodge including everything from moving tables, digging and planting in the garden, arranging the cost of entertainment, and serving on the board of the Langley Care Society. “They are an amazing family,” commented Patrick Matiowski, the lodge director of fundraising. “Our charity and the residents we serve are fortunate to have their support.” Myrt and Stan’s grandchildren Lisa and Tim Dolinski, Paul Anglin, and Stephanie and Stephan Boyer continue to volunteer with numerous activities, especially ones arranged by their Aunt Mona Anglin. The newest generation includes Myrt and Stan’s greatgrandchildren Liam and Kate Dolinski. The residents particularly enjoy Kate and Liam serving at the yearly Valentine’s dinner. continued on page A32…

Bob Foster sees it often in his store, Krazy Bob’s Emporium. “We’ve sold records for funerals. We’ve sold records for weddings,” he said. The shop has customers who want a special record from their parent’s era, a kitschy recording from the disco era or that CD that brings back special memories. So it’s natural that music lovers, collectors and even gamers looking for retro products like Game Boy, NES, SNES, Genesis and PSX would head to the largest source in the Lower Mainland. Foster said he’s worked to ensure that people can obtain the products they want for a reasonable price so vinyl and other retro entertainment products don’t become the exclusive domain of the wellhealed. “When I can beat flea market deals and I can beat eBay prices, I know I’m doing it right,” he said. Don’t hesitate to stop by and browse. Even if you don’t find your heart’s desire that day, there’s always new stock coming in. The goal is to make a trip to Krazy Bob’s Emporium an entertaining experience. The 4,000 square foot shop has in excess of 300,000 records alone, but don’t be intimidated. The shop has a handful

of staff who along with Foster are very knowledgeable about the products. The store also has a new loyalty program customers can find out about by visiting. Foster started the store more than two decades ago (it’s in its third location) and has ridden the storm of experts who said vinyl was dead. He said digital formats don’t have the same impact. Vinyl is tactile, it’s visual and the album covers are a whole genre of art. Many artists started releasing vinyl records. He explained that key to enjoying retro products is looking after and maintaining the equipment needed to play them. Eighttrack tapes, for example, have sound quality comparable to digital recordings but the machines get harder to find. Vinyl actually has a broader dynamic range than digital. Each format has its benefits so stop by 20484 Fraser Hwy. because you never know what you’re going to find. Krazy Bob’s is open Sunday, Monday and Tuesday from 11 am to 4 pm, and Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10:30 am to 5:30 pm. It’s closed Wednesdays. Contact the store at 604-534-5150.

Care

Group supports Lodge Strong community support continues for Langley Lodge. Aldergrove Financial Group has stepped forward with a $120,000 donation for the seniors complex care facility. The new garden courtyard at the complex care home will be given a new name: the Aldergrove Financial Group Garden Courtyard. “We’re honoured to have the beautiful garden courtyard named after Aldergrove Financial Group. It’s a place all residents and their families can enjoy,” said Aldergrove Credit Union CEO Gus K Hartl. The facility has been completely renovated and expanded in the past couple of years as part of a $28 million project. That included the courtyard where residents can simply enjoy the outdoors or garden as recreational therapy. “Not only can you see the improvements to the building, our donation has helped to sustain therapeutic recreation services – all of which are what make the Langley Lodge a home,” Hartl said. The facility is operated by the Langley Care Society, a non-profit organization. “Aldergrove Financial Group are active partners in creating a safe, comfortable and elegant home for the elderly residents of Langley Lodge,” said Lodge CEO Debra Hauptman.

Music

Tick-tock, time to get tickets The Concert Band and Orchestra of Trinity Western University will pay homage to Haydn later this month. They have a pair of concerts in Langley on Nov. 18 and in Abbotsford on Nov. 25. The shows will also include pieces by Brahms, Shostakovich, Weber, and SaintSaëns to round out the program. The orchestra will perform Haydn’s Symphony No. 101, The Clock, in its entirety, from the famous “tick-tock” slow movement to the swift, difficult finale which clocks in at a mere four and a half minutes. “There’s more to ‘Papa’ Haydn than first meets the ear,” commented Dr. Allan Thorpe, director of Instrumental Activities at TWU’s music program. “It’s been a privilege for our musicians to explore this symphony, which shows several sides to the composer – all in a single, masterful work.” The Concert Band portion will open with an arrangement of Haydn’s Glorious Things of Thee Are Spoken, a joyful blending of the

well-known Austrian hymn and a brass fanfare. This hymn tune eventually became the German national anthem. Later in the evening is Fantasies on a Theme by Haydn, a work that takes a tune from Haydn and fragments it into a marvellous kaleidoscope of sound. Norman Dello Joio’s varied piece is a treasure trove of other clever musical allusions as well, both classical and contemporary. “It’s an invigorating program which will highlight the many sections of our concert band and orchestra, while also featuring the organs of the churches in which we perform,” Thorpe said. “Saint-Saëns’ organ symphony will give us the opportunity to showcase that instrument alongside our concert band.” The Langley show is at 7:30 p.m. at the Shepherd of the Valley Lutheran Church, 20097 72nd Ave. The Abbotsford show is at the Peace Lutheran Church, 2029 Ware St. with the same start time.

Music

Students part of concert by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

S

everal Langley piano students get to go wild next Friday. They have been invited to perform Nov. 25 with the Kwantlen Polytechnic University Orchestra and soloist Calvin Dyck. The program is Saint-Saens’ Carnival of the Animals and Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. “It really gives them invaluable experience,” said Richard Haack, principal of the Western Conservatory of Music. Thanks to Kwantlen’s connections to the music school, five of Haack’s students have been invited to perform (Raymond Li, 15; Milena Kovacevic, 14; Nicole Gunther, 20; Ron Bencze, 22; and Garrett Bates, 18). Most music students perform solo or in small groups, not getting an opportunity to perform with an orchestra and the different challenge that offers a musician. “It’s really nice of Kwantlen to open it up,” Haack said. There are children’s shows in the morning before the evening show. Organizers have made this a package deal in terms of the art offered. The show

even features visual art and poetry by local Langley elementary school students. For some of the local music students, such as Gunther, who is studying piano and hopes to next tackle cello, Gates, who wants to be a piano teacher, and Bencze, who has played piano for 18 years, continues his music education and wants to become a school teacher, the opportunity will serve them well, career-wise. But fun-wise, all are looking forward to being on stage. “I have a real passion for orchestras and to be able to play within one is a dream come true,” commented Gunther. Each performs music about a different animal or a portion of the musical score. Li, who goes to Brookswood Secondary, is enjoying this new experience while R.E. Mountain Secondary’s Kovacevic is no stranger to the stage, being a member of the Langley Ukulele Ensemble. Bates and Bencze both attend Kwantlen. “It’s a great oppertunity to play the piano backed by a full orchestra in front of a large audience,” Bencze said. Tickets range from $12 for students to $25 for adults for the 7 p.m. evening show in the university’s theatre, Glover Road and the Langley Bypass. For information and tickets, call 604-599-3315.

’Tis the Season

Gift-giving made easy for the right backyard enthusiasts

P

otential gifts for gardeners are everywhere – but it’s important to gauge what kind of gardener you’re dealing with. If you get it right, your gift will not only be greeted with huge enthusiasm, but get enjoyed for years into the future. Container gardeners are a quickly growing group of people might love another container – if they have enough space for one. You could increase their space by giving a small obelisk or trellis which would make vertical gardening possible with climbing plants. Other possibilities include pot feet that enhance drainage and protect gardeners’ decks from rotting. Platforms on castors are equally useful, because they allow soil-filled pots to be rolled easily from place to place. Houseplant gardeners may like a decorative plant mister or a set of small gardening tools. It’s also possible to find elegant watering cans that look beautiful alongside plants on the windowsill. Gardeners with larger spaces are often elderly these days. The one gift that can help them weed, even with arthritic knees, is the Easy Kneeler, a low seat which can be reversed to become a kneeling pad with very sturdy arms that makes getting up easier. It’s supported on each side by a metal tubular loop, so that plants underneath don’t get mashed. Anyone who needs gentler

gardening will find that the smaller floral shovels and forks make digging and lifting less strenuous, as do long-handled trowels. Safety outside can be enhanced with solar lights for paths, or LED flashlights for midnight slug-hunting expeditions. Ergonomic garden tools with very soft, large handles are tailor-made for arthritic hands. Gardeners who have large fruit trees, but have developed an aversion to tottering around on ladders, may be interested in a longpole fruit picker. The style varies, but basically, it is a pole with a big metal loop at one end, fastened to a bag which catches the fruit as it drops. Rural gardeners with big space can spend a lot of time fighting weed trees and blackberries that invade from all sides. It’s lucky that loppers come in all sizes and styles, because often people have to switch from one to another for various jobs. Some loppers have extendable handles. For heavier work, there are ratcheting loppers that are adjustable to bite with increasing strength. With bypass loppers, two sharp blades slip tightly past each other, giving a very clean cut, ideal for pruning valuable shrubs and trees. Anvil loppers suit more rugged work, because a flat metal tread receives the cutting blade – and also tends to crush one side of the piece being cut. Any kind of lopper is an apt gift for large-space gar-

Junior B hockey

Resurgent Kodiaks claw to top of conference The Aldergrove Kodiaks have been a bear to play against so far this season. by Troy Landreville sports@langleyadvance.com

The bears are back. Coming off a subpar 2010/11 campaign in which they finished last in the Pacific International Junior Hockey League’s Harold Brittain Conference with a 1522-0-9 record, the Aldergrove Kodiaks have found their teeth again. Led by new head coach Tim Preston, the junior B squad sat on top of its conference with a 12-4 record heading into last night’s home game against the Grandview Steelers. Results from the Nov. 16 contest at Aldergrove Arena are not available due to Wednesday afternoon press deadlines. By season’s end, the Kodiaks hope for a repeat of what happened two years ago. In 2009/10, the Kodiaks’ second season in the PIJHL, they won the league playoff championship series, four games to two over the Delta Ice Hawks. Aldergrove went on to take bronze in the Cyclone Taylor Cup provincial junior B championship. The way things have gone so far, the locals might be poised to once again make waves come playoff time. Heading into the week, the Kodiaks were unbeaten in November with wins over the Mission Icebreakers, North Vancouver Wolf Pack, Delta Ice Hawks, and, most impressively, Richmond Sockeyes. The 2-1 edging of Richmond on Nov. 9 was a statement game. Not only did the Kodiaks’ win their ninth consecutive contest, they handed the previously unbeaten Sockeyes their first loss of the season. “Anytime you play the Sockeyes, who were 14-0, that’s a measuring stick to see if we can compete at the high level of

Aldergrove Kodiaks forward Scott Mackey gained control off the puck off the faceoff during a game against the Delta Ice Hawks earlier this season. Heading into last night’s home game against Grandview, the 12-4 Kodiaks had won nine in a row and were perched at the top of the Pacific International Hockey League’s Harold Brittain Conference. the PIJHL,” said Rick Harkins, who stepped into an associate coach’s role after serving as the Kodiaks’ bench boss since their inception in 2008/09. “Until you knock off number one, you don’t know where you’re at.” The Kodiaks and Sockeyes meet again tonight (Nov. 17) in what Harkins describes as “another big test.” Lately, the Kodiaks have been doing it with defence. In their last five games, they have only surrendered nine goals. “We’ve got our goals-against down, and like any hockey team, we work from the net out,” Harkins said. “We pride ourself in defence and goalsagainst. After the first five or six games of the year, we were allowing three-and-a-half [goals

and defenceman Robert Jang (13 points each), and Ryan Veillet and Alex Feighan (12 points apiece). Potomak, a left winger from Aldergrove, started the year with the Western Hockey League’s Moose Jaw Warriors before joining the Kodiaks. “He has done really well,” Harkins said. “He’s putting up over a point-and-a-half a game. He’s a great skater with great skill level.” Last year was a difficult one for Harkins, who spent time away from the team while dealing with family issues far removed from the rink. “Hockey took a back seat to personal issues,” Harkins said. Harkins, who doubles as the team’s general manager, shouldered the blame for the Kodiaks’ struggles last season. “What usually happens is by Christmas time, if we need a fit here, a defenceman or a forward, [I make a deal],” he said. “But I left the team with my assistants and they were stuck with what they had. They had to do it with smoke and mirrors. I wasn’t able to make any moves. I take all the blame.” Harkins said associate coach Steve Howerton was on his own for part of last year, “and did an admirable job under the circumstances.” Preston, a well-respected skating instructor, joined the team with about 10 games remaining in last season. ••• Tonight’s Kodiaks/Sockeyes showdown faces off at 7:30 p.m. at Richmond Arena. Since their loss to Aldergrove, the Sockeyes have reeled off two more wins and possess an impressive 16-1 record. The Kodiaks’ next home game at Aldergrove Arena is next Wednesday, Nov. 23, when they host the Abbotsford Pilots at 7:15 p.m. The 11-4 Pilots are hot on the Kodiaks’ heels in a two-way battle for top spot in the Harold Brittain Conference.

Bear mauling in Nanaimo

Tuesday, November 22, 2011

“Raising Money for TWU Athletics: supporting sports and education”

Presents Special Guest Speaker and Panel Host...

David Clements photo

The North Langley bantam Bears were led onto the field in Nanaimo by bagpiper Jean Sparkes, parent of Bears’ player Cameron Sparkes. The next Bears touchdown was on a flea flicker, with Fredo throwing to Pritchard for a major. Sparkes came in as quarterback near the end of the first half, and proceeded to complete an 11-yard pass to Kenzie Oram. The play set up the next score on a 20-yard run by Sang. Ahead by 37 points going into the second half of play, the Bears focused more on defence in the second half, with some strong tackling, including quarterback sacks by Eric Boomars, Damon Vassos, and Jason Sharp. At one point, the Redmen nearly scored on an interception with the Nanaimo player running more than 50 yards before being forced out of bounds by Pritchard at the 20-yard line. After that, Fredo made a strong tackle at the line of scrimmage, and then Boomars finished the Nanaimo drive with a quarterback sack. Atom Bears North Langley scored a touchdown, but fell 38-6 to Meadow Ridge Gold in a playoff game on Saturday.

While the North Langley Bears’ regular season is officially over, the bantam footbal team isn’t finished playing just yet. The Bears evened their record to 5-5 with a lopsided 37-0 win over the host Nanaimo Redmen on Sunday. The win secured a playoff spot for the North Langley squad. From the opening kickoff, the Bears were on their game, and by the time the halftime whistle blew, held a commanding 37-0 lead. David Fredo returned the opening kickoff more than 45 yards to the Nanaimo 30-yard line. North Langley fumbled the ball and lost possession, but the Bears’ defence still earned two points on a safety conceded by the Redmen, thanks largely to a tackle by Cameron Sparkes in the backfield that cost Nanaimo nine yards. The Bears regained good field position on their next drive with a 50-yard kick return by Adrian Clements. They quickly turned it into the first Bears’ touchdown on a 20-yard run by Brandon Sang, capped by a two-point conversion from Fredo to Clements. On the Bears’ next scoring drive, Braeden Pritchard connected with Clements on a 30-yard pass. After gathering in the pass, Clements ran 40 additional yards into the end zone. One play later, the Nanaimo quarterback was intercepted by Michael Chan, who ran the ball nearly 50 yards to the Redmen’s one-yard line David Nathan ran the ball in on the next play for the third North Langley touchdown of the opening quarter.

It looks as though Braedon Dolfo has recovered quite nicely from summer hip surgery. The Langley resident broke his own Canadian 100-metre (T13 visually impaired) record while capturing the bronze medal in Tuesday’s final at the Parapan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. His time of 11.34 seconds is also a London 2012 Paralympic Games “A” qualifying standard mark. “I’m feeling pretty good, another personal best,” Dolfo said. “It feels great to be back.” Dolfo initially set the record on Monday in a qualifying heat.

That’s when he took the next step in his recovery from July hip surgery, establishing a new Canadian mark of 11.36 in finishing second in his 100m heat. He shaved .13 seconds off the previous Canadian record of 11.49 seconds. Dolfo developed cataracts and chronic uveitis at age five and began competing in track and field at age 11 after he developed glaucoma. He has represented Canada at the 2011 IPC world championship, where he brought home bronze and set a Canadian record in the high jump.

Braedon Dolfo ran to a bronze medal in the 100m (T13 visually impaired) final Tuesday at the Parapan American Games in Guadalajara Mexico. Langley Advance files

Dolfo also anchored the visually impaired 4x100m relay team to a fourth place finish at the worlds.

Dolfo, who turns 18 on Nov. 28, is scheduled to run the 200m heats today (Thursday).

…continued from page A47 The two teams opened the contest looking for energy as they were competing in their third match in three days. TWU’s injury-depleted lineup just did not have enough left in the tank in the second half as Alberta outshot the Spartans 10-5 and added a lone goal in the 61st minute. The Pandas got their second of the night off a goal from Carleigh Miller, which made it 2-0 with less than 30 minutes remaining. The teams last met in the Canada West gold medal match with TWU coming away with a 2-1 win in penalty kicks. This was the final match for TWU graduating seniors Daniela Gerig, Melissa Mobilio, and Alexi Foster. Spartans 1, Wilfred Laurier 0 Alicia Tesan came off the bench to score the gamewinner and freshman goalkeeper Cara Santaga earned her first official shutout in her maiden start, as Trinity Western blanked the Wilfrid Laurier Golden Hawks 1-0 in the consolation semifinal. The semifinal game was played Friday at Percival Molson Stadium. Tesan, who subbed in during the 26th minute, scored four minutes later on a broken play initiated by striker Daniela Gerig. “I’m actually not sure what happened on that goal,” said Tesan, a thirdyear forward who was named CIS rookie of the year in 2009. “It was a cross that deflected off the defender and I kinda settled the ball but it bounced up and I volleyed it in, top corner! Honestly, I can’t even remember who made the cross, it happened so fast.” Santaga registered 10 saves in her first start since the preseason, in the wake of a hip injury suffered the night before by allCanadian ’keeper Kristen Funk during penalty-kicks in a 1-0 TWU shootout loss to McGill. McGill Martlets 1, Spartans 0 The Spartans’ quest for a fourth Gladys Bean memorial trophy came to a sudden end Thursday, Nov. 10, at McGill University. The Spartans fell 1-0 (4-1 in penalty kicks) to the Martlets in their opening round of the 2011 CIS championship. This was the Spartans’ first loss since Sept. 10, when they fell 1-0 to UBC, and only their second loss in a national championship game. The loss also ends TWU’s winning streak at 15 matches. • More online at www. langleyadvance.com, click on “Sports”

February 4, 1993 - November 12, 2011 It is with great sadness that we announce the loss of our son Dylan James Reichelt, who died in a car accident on Saturday, November 12th, 2011. Dylan is survived by his parents, Bill and Cathy, sisters, Keri and Keira, twin brother, Jesse, and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Born and raised in Langley, Dylan had a passion for golf, hockey, Iron Maiden, Manchester City FC, working out, refereeing, fishing, boating, video games, wakeboarding, wake surfing, steak, and Caesar salad. He attended Murrayville Elementary, graduated from Brookswood Secondary in June 2011 and was in his first year of a business degree at Kwantlen University. Dylan enjoyed all forms of athletics, playing baseball, golf, soccer, ice hockey, street hockey with the boys, tennis in the park and he was always game to go to the gym. He enjoyed being a referee for Langley Minor Hockey and ‘Gatorade’ boy for the BC Lions Home Games. He was ranked #1 in points with the Maple leaf golf tour in BC and had been invited to the MJT National Tour Championships in Orlando, Florida, along with his best friend and brother, Jesse. Dylan was charismatic, genuine, optimistic and never shy or awkward. He enjoyed life and excelled at anything he set his hand to. He was quick with a grin and a smart remark and was loved by everyone he met. A celebration of Dylan’s life will be held on Monday, November 21, 2011 at 11:00 am at the Christian Life Assembly, 21277 56th Avenue, Langley. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to RBC , account #00608-003-5018650 in support of the Dylan Reichelt Memorial Fund.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: A month of far travel, higher learning, legal affairs, cultural involvements, of wide vision and the “big questions” begins Tuesday. (It starts in earnest, more deeply, Friday onward.) However, a general slow-down and “backtracking” influence begins now, so the travel should be to former places, the higher learning will succeed best if it is review or research, etc. Don’t be determined to break new ground; test the ground you’re on first. Lots of work confronts you now to next July. Until Dec. 13, limit these chores to routine or neglected ones. Start nothing new before then. Taurus April 20-May 20: Don’t start anything new before Dec. 13, especially in finances, investments, debt, lifestyle changes or intimate commitments. Don’t begin new funding partnerships. Instead, deal with past or ongoing projects – protect the latter from mistakes and unforeseen contingencies, supply shortages, etc. Have a “Plan B.” Your romantic nature heats up through next June. If you’re single, the three weeks ahead bring a sweet, gentle, inquisitive, supportive person. At the same time, now to late December, your sexual, intimate urge heightens. Result: quick closeness! Be honest, moral. Gemini May 21-June 20: Start nothing before Dec. 13 – instead, focus on past or ongoing ventures, particularly in relationships, relocation, litigation, agreements, negotiations, contracts and dealings with the public. Tuesday begins a month in which all these matters will be emphasized. Your thoughts/ desires might turn to an old flame or “ex.” But this link holds dangers: domestic friction, urges to end it, his/her “domination attitude,” etc. On the other hand, a great opportunity, perhaps to find a retreat, or land a government or institutional link/permission, could arise from a past contact.

Cancer June 21-July 22: A month of work and health concerns begins Tuesday. Stick to routine and ongoing chores. DON’T start a big new work, employment or machinery project – or anything important – before Dec. 13. Buy no machinery, TV or computers. You’re restless, but you’ll be fine, happy, if you channel this energy into work, errands and “phone lines.” You might revisit a former home, or reconnect with a family member. Your home needs care (electrical?) Sunday/Monday – kids too. Romance beguiles midweek. That month of work begins seriously Friday/Saturday. Bosses are tense, but you succeed! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: A month of romance, pleasure, adventure, creativity and speculation begins Tuesday – you’ll ride a winning streak! But stick to former or ongoing attractions – brand new loves, though they can flame and pulse hot, will – long-term – be busts. As if to nudge you the right way, an old flame will return, in actuality or in your thoughts. Start nothing new, in business or love, before Dec. 13. (And DO NOT start a new creative work – its ending would elude you.) Settle into home midweek: all’s fine, kids are sweet, friends happy, thoughts good. Romance grows Friday, teeters Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Tuesday triggers a month of domestic, security, real estate, foundational, gardening, nature, nutrition, stomach and soul concerns. All these matters face delays, indecision and “backwardation” now to Dec. 13. During these few weeks “manna from the past” can occur. You might face a splendid opportunity to “redo” your home situation, to re-align children’s direction or education, or to purchase a residence (perhaps in a foreign country) that you have already seen/wanted. But DON’T begin brand new projects; don’t purchase a newly glimpsed home, start new renovations, etc.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: An active, busy, communicative, restless, travel-prone month begins Tuesday (and more solidly, earnestly Thursday night). Unfortunately, a period of delay, indecision and confusion also begins this week, lasting to Dec. 13. DON’T begin important projects before then, especially in travel and communications – e.g., avoid a new mail-order venture, installing new telephones or office equipment, etc. Travel only to revisit, not to new places (except for rest, e.g., a week on the Cuban beach). A former friend might return – it’s not a big thing. Chase money Wednesday/Thursday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The month ahead emphasizes money: earnings, buying/selling, possessions, and memorization or rote learning. Until Dec. 13, start nothing new in these (or any) areas. Guard against mistakes, slowdowns, supply shortages and missed meetings. Have a “Plan B” ready in money areas. Contact former clients. A sensual relationship might begin. While pleasant, even deeply gratifying, this bond is unlikely to last unless she/he reappears from your past (now to mid-December). Lie low, rest Sunday eve to Tuesday eve. Your charisma and energy surge midweek. Work safely Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Sunday to Tuesday bring you optimism, hope – and for good reason. Tuesday begins a month of higher energy, charisma and popularity. This would usually be a great time to start important projects and make your mark on the world. But until Dec. 13 the only long-term success will involve projects or relationships resurrected from the past. Ongoing ventures are also fine, but be patient with them, and protect them from delays, supply shortages and “new ideas.” A former mate might appear soon. Rest, recuperate and contemplate midweek. Your energy surges Thursday night onward.

Nov. 20 - 26, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: A month of quietude, rest, contemplation, of sweet solitude, begins Tuesday. (Take hopeful, ambitious action Sunday night to Tuesday.) Your timing is great – just as you slow down, so too does the world – until Dec. 13. (In other words, you’re not missing anything important.) Before that time, start nothing major in any arena. This is a splendid time to get a physical, to revisit a hospital, institution, large corporation or government, to re-apply for aid or permission. Hopes and friendly meetings arise midweek. Retreat Friday/Saturday: your home (and heart?) need care. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The month ahead brings friends, parties, entertainment, happiness, optimism and wish fulfillment! However, until Dec. 13 only ongoing people, things and projects – or those reprised from the past – will succeed. Don’t start anything new before that date. A former lover, flirter or affectionate friend might return. You’re attracted to former groups – give them a call. You could start a short, hot fling with someone from your past. Is it fair to him/her? Monday/Tuesday are mellow, gently loving, wise. Be ambitious midweek – bosses like you! Happiness, friends, Friday/Saturday! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Tuesday starts a month of ambition, prestige and status concerns, and relations with VIPs, bosses and parents. Start nothing new, especially in these zones, before Dec. 13. Protect ongoing ventures and projects from delays, confusion, mistakes, indecision, supply shortages and missed appointments. Have a “Plan B” ready. Don’t believe promises, especially from Virgo or Gemini. A position, client, VIP or employer from the past could hold the ticket to success. Monday/Tuesday are mysterious, sexy: dig deep for answers. Wisdom, gentle love arise midweek. Be ambitious late week. timstephens@shaw.ca

Looking back…

and Langley City’s population had grown to 4,634 residents from 2,800 in the same period.

NOVEMBER 11, 1981

Sixty Years Ago

Fifty Years Ago
