Metcalfe named top citizen

Former firefighter Terry Metcalfe’s commitment to Langley saw him named citizen of the year. by Matthew Claxton

Walnut Grove

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Retired fire chief Terry Metcalfe has been named the H.D. Stafford Person of the Year, for his year of volunteer work with varied groups across Langley. “It was a complete surprise,” Metcalfe said after receiving the award, which was given out by the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce at its pre-Christmas meeting Tuesday evening at the Cascades Convention Centre. Metcalfe had been lured to the meeting by being told he would represent Langley Lodge, one of many places where he volunteers. Instead, he heard chamber president Denni Bonetti calling his name. Until that point, Metcalfe didn’t even know he’d been nominated. Metcalfe, born and raised in Langley, was a teacher for 14 years in local schools, and became a paid on-call firefighter. He eventually left his teaching job as he worked his way Matthew Claxton/Langley Advance up the ranks of the fire department and became a full-time Denni Bonetti, left, gave Terry Metcalfe the award for H.D.

Carollers fired up A festive caroling parade is going through Walnut Grove this Sunday evening.

Walnut Grove firefighters are giving themselves an early Christmas present on Dec. 18. They’ll tour through the neighbourhood, collecting donations of cash and non-perishable food for the Langley Food Bank. It’s a gift for the firefighters because, “We get to go out and interact with our friends and neighbours, and give them a festive event that many really look forward to,” explained firefighter Jhim Burwell. “Last year was my first year doing the parade, and it was absolutely fantastic running beside the trailers, seeing the kids’ faces light up when they saw Santa waving to them from the fire truck, and whole families out to say, ‘Hi,’ and give us their donation.” And people who spend their days helping others now look forward to the annual food drive as a way to help those who face hunger. “We did have a couple of years [2008 and 2009] where we didn’t get to do it, for weather and logistical issues, but it is recognized as a really important part of the Christmas season by the firefighters’ families and our community, so there was no way it wasn’t coming back again,” Burwell said. They collected about 350 pounds of food and toys, and $150 in cash donations last year. The caroling parade will start at 6 p.m. at the Township fire hall on 208th Street and 96th Avenue, and follow the route shown below. As the procession of merrymakers passes, people are asked to come forward with their contributions. • More at www.langleyadvance.com, click on “News”

That’s a wrap

Troy Landreville/Langley Advance

Celebrities put their gift-wrapping skills to work Saturday at Willowbrook Shopping Centre, with proceeds supporting Langley School District Foundation programs. Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese was joined by (from left) author Craig Spence, BC Lion Neil McKinlay, and Global BC news anchor Steve Darling. Others helping were country music artist AJ Woodworth, CBC radio Almanac host Mark Forsythe, singer Cole Armour, Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, singer and musician Lee Aaron, country artist Emily Taylor Adams, chefs Anthony Sedlak and Angie Quaale, and Jinder Oujla-Chalmers, creator of Global TV’s Combat Hospital.

Fire

Blazing structure was demolition Firefighters handed out tickets Tuesday in South Langley. A column of smoke visible for several miles turned out to be a badly planned demolition, Langley Township district fire chief Rick Reddick said. Firefighters responding to Camp McLean on 16th Avenue east of 200th

Street found a crew was tearing down a building and burning the waste wood. They didn’t have a permit for the fire, and burning is not a recognized or allowed way of disposing of demolition material. Reddick said firefighters handed out tickets to the men who were manning the equipment and feeding debris into the fire.

The Langley Teachers’ Association is hoping some ghosts visit the Ministry of Education this Christmas. The union for local public school teachers took a page from the Charles Dickens’ tale A Christmas Carol, and threw in a Santa and a gift wish list to garner some attention before and during the Langley School Board meeting on Dec. 13. LTA president Gail Chaddock-Costello, dressed as a Christmas angel, gave a presentation structured around the Dickensian ghosts of past, present, and future. The union presented a list of cuts and changes in the school district in recent years, which it says are mainly due to provincial underfunding. Much of the presentation came down to the loss of class size and composition limits in the collective agreement. The province did away with those in 2002.

Heather Colpitts/Langley Advance

Langley Teachers’ Association president Gail Chaddock-Costello and others held a Christmasthemed rally before Tuesday’s school board meeting.

“Langley students and staff lost firm class size limits, and instead, we now have ‘district averages,’” she said. She noted that the district has lost 20.5 special education teachers, yet it has more special needs students in many classes, and has more students

identified as special needs. Many other areas within the district has also seen cuts. “How can the district and all partner groups move forward towards a brighter future with a budget that does not meet our current needs, let alone our future enhancement plans?” ChaddockCostello asked. B.C. teachers are currently in the midst of job action related to contract negotiations with the provincial government. The B.C. government has said there is no new money for teacher pay increases. In this job action that started back in September teachers are still in the classroom but not performing paperwork and administrative tasks. The B.C. Labour Relations Board ruled recently that teachers did not have to fill out report cards. The B.C. Public School Employers Association, which handles the negotiations, had applied to the LRB to have teachers pay 15 per cent of their salaries back to districts for not doing all their work. The LRB didn’t agree. Teachers have been without a contract since June.

Ashes are centre of a mystery A Mason jar of ashes – presumably human – was dropped off at a Langley thrift store. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

The Langley Penny Pincher gets a lot of donations, but they don’t normally get human remains. On Nov. 14, the Langley RCMP were called when the staff at the store found a jar, in their donation bin, labelled “DADS ASHES 2011.” Police initially assumed that the ashes had been stolen, then abandoned in the bin by a thief. However, a search of the police databases has not turned up any reported thefts that match this incident, said Cpl. Holly Marks of the Langley RCMP. “It is possible the ashes are not stolen, however this is not a typical donation,” Marks said in a press release. It is also possible that the ashes were donated by mistake, or that they were stolen but the theft was not noticed or

Police are hoping to return “Dad’s Ashes” to their rightful owner. not reported. Police are now hoping someone can identify the jar and help them get it back to its rightful owners. Anyone who might have information can call the Langley RCMP at 604-5323200.

is in favour of the change. The house has no heritage value and is not in good shape. The property will eventually be developed, but will be kept green with some public access in the near future, council was told.

Grant’s Law watered down Businesses have successfully pressured WorkSafeBC into diluting a safety rule that was originally tightened up after a Maple Ridge man was killed on the job. WorkSafeBC approved a third option to its employment requirements in the occupational health and safety regulation, allowing late-night employees to work alone. Apparently, the options of either having more than one person on any shift or erecting a barrier “are not practical for late-night retailers.” The current regulations covering shifts between 11 p.m. and 6 a.m. were introduced in February 2008, and include Grant’s Law, which requires customers to prepay before pumping their gas. The law is named for gas station attendant Grant De Patie of Maple Ridge, who was dragged to his death after trying to prevent Darnell Pratt from leaving without paying. Understandably, Grant’s father Doug feels that years of work by the De Patie family has gone for naught. It’s like being sent back to square one, he said, though Grant’s Law has stopped gas-and-dash crimes. The new third option, to take effect April 15, require a list of controls – but it does not replace the existing two options, according to WorkSafeBC. An employer choosing the third option must have a time-lock safe, limited access inside, good visibility, cash and lottery tickets stored in a time-lock safe, and maintain video surveillance. The fact that Grant was 24 when he was killed does little to excite anyone about a requirement that “third option” workers must be 19 years of age. Roberta Ellis, a WorkSafeBC senior vicepresident, insists workers’ safety will not be compromised. Only time will tell. In the meantime, Doug De Patie appears to have it right: WorkSafeBC seems to be caving in to the demands of employers, forgetting that negligence led to Grant’s death. – S.M.

Health care

Pay now or pay more later

Dear Editor, I’d like to see if there are any others facing the challenge that I am facing, and if so, is there anything we can do about it? I am older than 65 and cannot live on CPP and OAS, so I am continuing to work. Unfortunately, I have some physical challenges and am in a power chair. As a result, my physician has ordered home care services twice a day to meet my medical needs, to ensure that I do not develop complications down the road and become more dependent on the system. Earlier this month I received a letter from the Fraser Health Authority informing me that, since I am approximately $6,000 above their limit, as of Jan. 1, 2012, I now have to start to pay for the services I am receiving. They want more than half of the extra money I make in the year. The reason I am working is that I cannot make ends meet – I need a new roof, and at this point I cannot afford to buy one. I was hoping that, with the little bit of extra

money I was making, I might be able to afford it sooner rather than later. Then I would also be able to continue doing all the community work that I do, as when you volunteer to help out, a lot of those expenses are absorbed by yourself. I sent a letter of inquiry off to my MLA at the beginning of December, but I haven’t heard anything back yet. Since I cannot possibly afford to pay for these services, I am put in a position of having to cancel them, and thus not follow my doctor’s orders. I am just praying that it will not cause complications down the road and cost the health care system more money to deal with the aftermath of not following the orders. Please let me know if there are there any others who are in the same boat as I am. Maybe we can do something. I have worked in health care for 25 years of my 35-year career, and now when I need the services, I cannot get them. Are you there, too? Zosia Ettenberg, Langley

Violence against women

Men challenged to hold back jokes

Dear Editor, Kudos to for your editorial [Remember to stop violence, Dec. 6 Opinion, Langley Advance] that began with the names of the 14 victims of Dec. 6, 1989 – Lest We Forget. You end your great piece by declaring that “to sit idly by is unthinkable” – unfortunately too many

men, good in so many ways, do sit idly by. For many, it is hard to speak out: some because of perceived peer pressure and not wanting to be alienated; most because it is awkward – why are you saying anything if you are innocent, or why don’t you just mind your own business?

Law enforcement

Victim played part in death

Dear Editor, While I sympathize with any family that has to grieve, the police responded to a domestic call, clearly due to someone feeling threatened. Langley RCMP Supt. Derek Cooke said, “[Alvin Wright] was only shot as a last resort, after he came at them brandishing the knife.” [Dead man had a knife: RCMP, Nov 8, Langley Advance]. Can Mr. Wright [Civilian takes over, Dec. 8, Advance] accept that his son played a pivotal part in his demise and owns some of the outcome of this horrible event? No one should lose a life needlessly – not Mr. Wright’s son, but also none of the Mounties who were called to a violent situation that his son played a role in creating. Michelle Carduner, Langley

Well, as men, it is our business. You can’t argue the facts: violence against women is usually by men. This doesn’t mean all, or even the great majority of men are violent. Violence against women and girls is a systemic problem. To take personal responsibility as a man, to speak out and help put an end to violence against women is not an admission of personal guilt, but an acknowledgement that things must change. If I could encourage my brothers to refrain from telling any jokes that involve violence against women, even for just one year, I am confident that a surprisingly large number of people would notice their workplace, socializing spots, and home all become noticeably more comfortable. Go ahead and try it. I dare ya! Dan Olson, Maple Ridge

Provincial politics

Dear Editor, After the recent NDP convention, Adrian Dix is rubbing hands at the prospect of forming the next provincial government. Mr. Dix would reconfigure B.C. according to his particular strain of political thought. Any sort of NDP provincial government in B.C. is a frightening thing to consider. Contrary to the cultivated myth, NDP policies would harm the poor and middle class. The NDP has not had an original idea since its formation, and the two or three that they hold have proven to be ineffective constructs to operate a government. They measure social responsibility by the number of government-run programs and the amount of money spent on them, as opposed to how many people are really helped. This speaks to the self-righteous arrogance of the NDP and Mr. Dix, who believe that they have cornered the market on compassion.

TODAY’S FLYERS... in the Call 604-534-8641 for delivery info.

I acknowledge the public’s bitter resentment of the Liberals in B.C. They have exhibited many of the behaviours of a government in power so long that it thinks that it can get anything past the public. This contempt was aided in part by an ineffectual official opposition. The general public in B.C. appears to crave some honesty and credibility in a provincial government. In his previous stint here in an NDP government, Mr. Dix showed that he has a proclivity for being economical with the truth. People who want to punish the BC Liberals by throwing them out of office would only be hurting themselves. Nobody can afford to have the NDP running this great province of B.C.

Snow and Ice Control: Public Safety Tips for Residents During winter snowstorms, municipal staff work diligently to deliver defined levels of service. Service is provided during severe and potentially dangerous weather conditions. Sometimes our best efforts can be delayed due to challenges beyond our control. Here are some ways you can help us get the job done: • Remove vehicles parked on the road in front of your property so that snowplows and sanders are able to complete work. • Avoid driving or delay driving whenever possible until the snowfall slows or stops entirely. Reduced traffic provides municipal vehicles an opportunity to clear the roads. • Do not attempt to stop municipal vehicles that are sanding, salting, or plowing. All requests for service must be made by calling 604.532.7300. • Place garbage cans and recycling boxes on the sidewalk and/ or boulevard. Remove them as soon as possible after they are emptied. Garbage and recycling services can be impacted during severe storms. • Place snow shoveled from your sidewalk and driveway onto your lawn to the right of the driveway. This will prevent plows from plowing snow back into your driveway. • Avoid pushing shoveled snow onto the road. As plows push to the right, snow will be pushed back into your driveway. Public and vehicular safety is compromised when snow is pushed or shoveled onto roads. • Clear snow from the sidewalk adjacent to your property as soon as possible. This is the responsibility of all property owners.

• Clear any curb-side catch basins in front of your property so that water produced by melting snow flows into the basins and not into your driveway or house. • Children and pedestrians are advised to walk on the left side of the road, facing traffic, so they can see, hear, and avoid plow equipment and general oncoming traffic. • Advise children against building snow structures in snowbanks at the side of roads as children may be injured by the equipment widening the travelled road lanes. • Advise children against playing sports on the road when roads are being sanded and plowed. This causes hazards for municipal vehicle operators and other motorists as stopping distances increase with poor road conditions. Private contractors providing snow clearing for parking lots shall ensure that all snow plowed on a private or public parking lot remains on the originating lot. At no time should the snow be pushed out onto a public roadway or boulevard. Where snow cannot be plowed onto the originating lot, snow must be removed to an approved dump site. Clearing and maintaining our municipal roadways during a snow storm event takes time and planning to achieve the greatest benefits from our available resources. We appreciate your understanding, patience, and cooperation during this season. Visit our website for more information on our winter program.

New dealership to rise on the Bypass Another luxury car brand is coming to Langley City’s newest auto mall. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Shovels were raised as politicians and owners broke ground for a new Infiniti dealership at the auto mall on Glover Road and the Langley Bypass on Dec. 6. The new dealership, now under construction, will join BMW/Mini as the OpenRoad Auto Group expands its mall in the coming years. The Infiniti dealership will have a 19,000 square foot showroom, glass fronted. “With this new store, we hope to craft a unique automobile purchasing experience for our

customers,” said Christian Chia, OpenRoad Auto Group’s president and CEO. This will be the first Infiniti dealership in Metro Vancouver built from the ground up. It will include seven service bays and a showroom that will be built “with the luxuries of a five-star hotel,” the builders said. The auto mall, dubbed the Langley Auto Collection, is the first luxury-centric dealership built this far east in Metro Vancouver. Until the BMW/Mini dealership opened earlier this year, luxury dealers were confined to Vancouver, Richmond, and North Vancouver. Other tenants coming to the site will include non-auto dealerships, with offices and commerical space expected. The project will likely take

million project, built on more than 15 acres. About 10 acres will be set aside for the car dealerships.

A number of new business projects were approved by Langley Township council Monday, including a new Tim Hortons for Murrayville. Council approved a development permit that will allow the new coffee and doughnut shop to be built on the triangular piece of land on the northeast corner of Fraser Highway and 48th Avenue. Councillor Kim Richter had a few questions about whether or not cars will back up out of the drive through line and onto local roads – something that has been an issue at other restaurants. The building will have space for 19 cars in its drivethrough, said Township planner Ramin Seifi. If more than 20 cars are waiting for double-doubles, they will spill over into the parking lot before backing up onto roads. “That was done intentionally in case it exceeds 19,” Seifi said. There are also Township bylaws that can prevent on-street lineups for drive throughs, Seifi said. Township councillors also approved two other development permits, one for an additional commercial building at the 200th Street highway interchange, and another for a building at 72nd Avenue and 200th Street. The first building, in the Carvolth business area, will be built within the northwest loop of the interchange. The Willoughby building will be a single-storey strip mall style building, on the west side of 200th Street. No one from the public objected to any of the three projects during a public hearing Monday evening.

| Thursday, December 15, 2011 |

The Greater Vancouver Zoo is getting a big medical upgrade this year, adding its own animal care facility for veterinary work. Ever since it was the Vancouver Game Farm, the zoo has used either an aging barn or offsite clinics for its sick and injured animals. According to property manager Tony Guenther, the barn is almost a hundred years old, and it’s been upgraded, repaired, and rebuilt many times. Now the zoo is clearing land and preparing to lay the foundations for a new facility, with new equipment that will make the lives of keepers, vets, and animals easier. The cost of building the new facility will be about $1 million, but for the staff it will be priceless. “I’m incredibly excited,” said Claire Stead, the zoo’s veterinary technician. Starting later this year, she’ll be working in the new building daily, and said it will be a big step forward. There are about 430 animals at the zoo, ranging from small birds and monkeys, through medium-sized animals like capybaras and emus, up to hippos, tigers, and bears. A few of them are always in need of minor medical attention. They may need daily medication, or they may

Claire Stead, the veterinary technician at the Greater Vancouver Zoo, with “Mamma,” an elderly, blind, female capybara. require urinalysis or other labwork to be done. Animals must be vaccinated and sometimes wormed. Minor injuries have to be cleaned. Once they’re in the care facility, they need to be fed, watered, and checked on frequently. For the smaller animals, that’s difficult enough – they may not be big, but they’re not housepets, either. For larger animals, it can be extremely difficult to ensure both animal and keeper can be kept safe. So one of the most-anticipated additions to the new building will be a squeeze. A squeeze is a relatively narrow

passage with padded sides, which can contract to gently but firmly pin an animal in place. Once it’s immobilized, veterinarians and vet techs can give shots or conduct examinations. “It’s going to increase safety for the humans and the animals,” said Stead. Animals can panic when they’re taken out of their pens and put in a vet’s office. “They don’t understand what’s happening to them,” Stead said. The animals can thrash around, possibly injuring themselves. The squeeze will eliminate much of that danger. It also provides an alternative to tranquilizing animals – a procedure which can be risky with wild creatures. Vets have to monitor a tranquilized animal very closely to ensure that they survive. The zoo already has squeeze-type facilities for its largest animals, the hippos and giraffe, built into their pens. The facility will also allow Dr. Bruce Burton, the zoo’s regular vet, to do more of his work on site. In the past, he’s often had to take animals back to his office in Abbotsford, but this will eliminate many of the trips, and thus keep the animals calmer and closer to their pens. The facility will have everything from a temporary quarantine area for sick animals to an area for food preparation. It will have new freezers and a hay storage area. Land has already been cleared, and it is hoped that the building will be up and running later this year.

Christmas aglow Members of the Seventh Day Adventist congregation in Aldergrove have been putting on musicals for the past decade to help celebrate Christmas.

Holiday happenings

Church brings real Christmas story to stage Aldergrove’s Seventh Day Adventist perform The Christmas Station.

U

pwards of 75 cast and crew have been working for the past six months to bring to life the story of Christmas for this weekend’s stage production of The Christmas Station. Aldergrove Seventh Day Adventist Church is presenting this dramatic musical on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, (Dec. 16-18). It’s not the story of Santa Claus, but rather a biblical adaptation that reflects the birth of Jesus Christ, said senior pastor David Jamieson. For more than 10 years, Jamieson has used the skills gained while acquiring an English major (including exposure to drama and Shakespeare) to direct dramatic musicals at

Garden Melodies 10’ x 10’ by Denis Mayer Giclee Canvas $110 Retail

SALE $89

Production of The Christmas Station includes a modern take on the wise men. the church. This year’s Christmas production, The Christmas Station, tells the story of Eddie, a busy executive who is travelling home for the Christmas holidays and on the way home discovers the heart of the real Christmas story, Jamieson said. “This compelling production features not only Eddie’s incredible conversion while on his journey to Bethlehem, but also includes a modern rendition of the story of the wise men,

the shepherds, and Mary and Joseph,” he explained. The first two performances are almost sold out, and the church expects every seat will be taken again this year for all three performances. This is a testament to the quality of the Christmas musicals that the church has hosted over the years, Jamieson said. He noted that in past, the church has presented the dramatic musical to a full house each of the performances.

The Christmas Station will be presented at 7:30 p.m. on all three nights. While admission is free, tickets must be reserved in advance at 604-856-5830 or 778808-6317. A trailer of the production has been created, and is available for viewing at www. aldergrovesda.org, click on The Christmas Station logo. “It’s a program for young and old alike, to come out and enjoy something unique in the community of Langley, and in particular Aldergrove,” Jamieson said. The church, which also hosts the annual Extreme Home Repair and the Single Mom’s Oil Change, offers this free musical production as another way of reaching out to the community. “This is a great opportunity for churches of all denominations to share the heart of the real Christmas story,” he concluded.

Theatre

Panto queen presents King Arthur tale

Curtain goes up tonight on a team of Langley thespians. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

T

he legend of King Arthur gets a thorough makeover when Royal Canadian Theatre’s own “Queen of Panto,” Ellie King brings a sparkling, magical, musical, and hilarious British pantomime of the well-loved tale, Sword in the Stone, to the stage starting tonight. Time-honoured British pantomimes, put on by the Royal Canadian Theatre Company and Langley’s King family, have become a holiday tradition for many Lower Mainland families. This year’s Sword in the Stone is expected to be no exception. It’s a celebration of favourite childhood fairytales and legends, reworked and turned on their ear by uproarious characters and zany original and adapted songs, mixed in with generous amounts of innuendo and high-spirited audience interaction, said Ellie King. Ellie, artistic director and co-founder of RCT, started training in British theatre when she was three. She has been writing, producing, and directing pantomimes locally for more than 20 years, dragging her “long-suffering” husband Geoff King (among other family members) into many of the shows. “Pantomimes are suitable for all

Stacey Sherback photo

There are a number of Langley residents who Langley director Ellie King has recruited to perform in her upcoming Christmas production Sword In the Stone. The local participants included (back row left) Claurien Zanoria, Marinna, Susanne and Steffi Delisuminovic, and Leia Roberds, as well as (front row) James King (Demon King) and Alysha Manick. age groups and are a delightful way to introduce little ones to the theatre experience,” said Ellie, who noted many on her cast (including several from Langley) are children. “It may be playing in Surrey, but this pantomime is a labour of love for many Langley folks,” she said. The Kings are joined in this production by fellow Langleyites: Marinna, Susanne, and Steffi Delisuminovic,

Claurien Zanoria, James King, Leia Roberds, and Alysha Manic. Tickets are $25.25/adult, $20.25 for, seniors and students, and $15.25/children. They can be purchased in person at the Surrey Arts Centre Box Office, 13750 88th Ave. or by phone at 604501-5566. The show runs Dec. 15 to 31.

10 Reasons to Eat Organic Foods

• Organic products meet stringent standards — Organic certificcation is the public’s assurance that products have been grown and handled according to strict procedures without persistent toxic chemical inputs. • Organic food tastes great! — It’s common sense – well-balanced soils produce strong, healthy plants that become nourishing food for people and animals. • Organic production reduces health risks — Many pesticides were registered long before extensive research linked these chemicals to cancer and other diseases. Organic agriculture is one way to prevent any more of these chemicals from getting into the air, earth and water that sustain us. • Organic farms respect our water resources — The elimination of polluting chemicals and nitrogen leaching, done in combination with soil building, protects and conserves water resources. • Organic farmers build healthy soil — Soil is the foundation of the food chain. The primary focus of organic farming is to use practices that build healthy soils. • Organic farmers work in harmony with nature — Organic agriculture respects the balance demanded of a healthy ecosystem: wildlife is encouraged by including forage crops in rotation and by retaining fence rows, wetlands, and other natural areas. • Organic producers are leaders in innovative research — Organic farmers have led the way, largely at their own ex-pense, with innovative on-farm research aimed at reducing pesticide use and minimizing agriculture’s impact on the environment. • Organic producers strive to preserve diversity — The loss of a large variety of species (biodiversity) is one of the most pressing environmental concerns. The good news is that many organic farmers and gardeners have been col-lecting and preserving seeds, and growing unusual varieties for decades. • Organic farming helps keep rural communities healthy — Organic agriculture can be a lifeline for small farms because it offers an alternative market where sellers can command fair prices for crops. • Organic abundance — Foods and non-foods alike! — Now every food category has an organic alternative. And non-food agricultural products are being grown organically — even cotton, which most experts felt could not be grown this way.In short, organic agriculture is better for the earth, better for people and animals, and better for you. In short, organic agriculture is better for the earth, better for people and animals, and better for you.

Money for the project was raised by Langley Meadows Community School, De Dutch Pannekoek House, and Riverside Calvary Chapel, and Langley Orthodontics donated dental supplies for the orphans.

Astrid Fitzgerald was one of those who helped paint at the seniors centre in Brookswood.

Virginia’s World Was Shrinking

oy, it would be nice to sit and chat with Astrid Fitzgerald, if only the ubervolunteer would stand still long enough to catch up with her. “This week’s too busy,” Fitzgerald said when asked for a sit-down interview. On Dec. 6 the many people who love her at the Brookswood Senior Citizen Activity Centre managed to get her to slow down long enough to throw a party for this long-time volunteer who just turned 95. Lydia Francescutti, secretary at the centre, explained what this dynamic lady is like. “Just yesterday at our Food and Friends luncheon, she was there to help set up two hours early and stayed to clean up,” she said last Friday. “She also directed where we should put tables and other decorations and managed to make newcomers feel welcome. I had to stop her from lifting the tables herself.” Fitzgerald, a widow with one child, has lived in Langley since

1978. So why does she do keep volunteering when she’s more than earned the right to put her feet up and relax? “Why not?” is her straightforward reply. “This is what keeps you going. You’ve got to keep doing for other people.” So about twice a week she drives to the seniors centre at 19899 36th Ave. to help however she can. “Every aspect of the club has been enriched because she has been part of it,” said long-time friend Sheila Stach. “Over the years, she has been the club photographer and archivist, creating many albums recording the history of the club. She was the go-to person for fundraisers as no one can match her abilities in crafts, baking, or jam-making or her organizing skills for flea markets, yard sales, or craft fairs. Astrid distributes candies to visitors, collects pennies for the Langley Food Bank, and helps set up and clean up for the Food and Friends luncheons held at the centre. Just this past weekend, Astrid joined volunteers both Saturday and Sunday as they painted the hall.” continued on page A21…

Now she has so much to look forward to When Virginia was on her own, she lost touch with people. Aside from the holidays and occasional outings with her family, she spent a lot of time at home alone. Now that Virginia lives in a Chartwell residence, she is surrounded by people with similar interests and experiences. Her new friends are quickly becoming her best friends.

Busy resident always thinks of others eration that lived through the Depression understood that they had to make their own fun with picnics and trips to the beach, socializing and dinners. She noted that people don’t stop to think how much time today is wasted with technology such as TVs and computers. “I steer clear of the computer,” she said. “My cellphone is about as far as I go.” That’s because she would rather devote her time and

energy to helping others and a favourite activity, gardening. “Whatever comes along, I’ll do,” she said. “It keeps you going. Don’t ever be afraid to get in there and help.” Stach pointed Fitzgerald’s “ability to be a friend to all, never forgetting to greet everyone with a great big hug.” Despite that the party was for her, Fitzgerald made sure everyone felt welcome and had cake.

Forty Years Ago

DECEMBER 9, 1971

Langley’s history, as recorded in the files of the Langley Advance. Eighty Years Ago

DECEMBER 10, 1931

• A request to have electric lights installed in West Langley and Willoughby schools, at a cost of $50, was turned down by Langley School Board.

Seventy Years Ago

DECEMBER 11, 1941

• Reeve (mayor) Alex Hope announced it was not illegal to hold public meetings under Ministry of Defence war-time black-out rules.

Sixty Years Ago

DECEMBER 13, 1951

• The week’s 28-page broadsheet edition of the Langley Advance used up an entire ton of paper. It was the largest issue ever put out in the Upper Fraser Valley to that time.

Fifty Years Ago

DECEMBER 14, 1961

• Langley City voters rejected fluoridation of their water supply by a 291 to 218 vote. The issue had sparked bitter divisions between proponents and opponents. • Councillor Walter Jensen called for a recount after he was defeated by 11 votes in the municipal election.

• Teachers received a 6.5 per cent raise, and the school district’s budget exceeded $6.5 million. • City council gave approval for a twin theatre project.

Thirty Years Ago

DECEMBER 9, 1981

• Newly installed Township Mayor Bill Blair started streamlining Municipal Hall, instituting a new council committee system. • A six-plex theatre opened near Willowbrook Mall.

Twenty Years Ago

DECEMBER 11, 1991

• With kidnapper Christine Lamont’s jail sentence bumped up from eight to 28 years, her Langley parents planned a visit to Ottawa to attempt to convince authorities she did not belong in a Brazilian prison. • Local MP Bob Wenman’s “right to die” bill passed second reading and was put before a special House of Commons Committee. • Two Abbotsford men admitted to teaming up for a savage attack on a Langley woman whom they had snatched while she was walking with two male friends in the downtown Langley City area. They raped, beat, and stabbed the 18-year-old woman and left her for dead on the banks of the Fraser River.

well, since its new stems are vertical. Older stems begin arching out, but they are getting close to needing pruning anyway. Two or three of the oldest stems should be removed each year. New ones replace them. This is one of those shrubs that’s ideal for planting within sight of a window.

cing pink or white buds as early as November. Coastal gardeners can enjoy flowers in December, but in the Fraser Valley, the buds usually hide just under the soil until January when flowers begin appearing. The pretty, patterned cyclamen leaves are just three-inches tall, but the corms they spring from enlarge steadily over the years, producing an increasingly wide mat of flowers which can become hundreds. They are shade plants, happiest in woodsy, welldrained soil. If they like you, they’ll seed around. Cyclamen coum will even spread into lawns, and since it begins going dormant in April, co-exists happily with lawn-mowers, even heavy ride-on mowers. Since it’s a Mediterranean plant, summer drought doesn’t bother it. Leaves pop up again in mid-fall. This cyclamen grows easily from seed, but since it’s a sporadic germinator, seedpots should be retained for three years. Also long-flowering is an early form of the Christmas Rose (Helleborus niger praecox), which begins blooming around Halloween and goes right through to mid-

January. Breeders have now developed ‘Jacob,’ which is another very early-flowering white Helleborus niger. Most hellebores are shade plants that tolerate adversity well, but Helleborus niger is more demanding of shade and nourishment than the others. It likes compost or other kinds of lavish fertilizing, moisture in dry periods, and a light application of lime annually. Another hellebore which is quite eye-catching from Christmas through to May is Helleborus foetidus. It thrusts up big bunches of perfectly round green buds in December. Through January, the buds transform into green flower-cups with maroon edges. One of the most joy-giving winter shrubs is Viburnum bodnantense, which opens its very fragrant pink flowers in October and continues its willingness to bloom until late March. When frost hits, the flowers vanish, but tightlyclosed buds still decorate the tree. As the temperature rises, the flowers open again. This viburnum tolerates clay and brief, localized ponding after rain. It can survive most gardening mishaps and suits small spaces

ven in the dark, cold days around the winter solstice, flowers can be seen in gardens of people who know what to plant and where to plant their choices. Any of these winterbloomers would make a wonderful gift for gardeners who haven’t yet discovered them. One of the superstars that flowers from November to February is the Winter Jasmine (Jasminium nudiflorum) – all the more desirable because it’s bonehardy, thrives well, and flowers in deep shade or full sun and tolerates all soils. It’s a deciduous sprawler that should be tied to a support when young. If it’s allowed to ramble, it will make a large, loose groundcover that roots where it touches. But people who can do regular pruning and don’t mind supporting it initially will find this jasmine fits nicely into small spaces. Later, the main framework hardens, and support isn’t as necessary. Its bright yellow non-fragrant flowers open quickly in frost-free spells. Another winter treasure is the little hardy Cyclamen coum, which begins produ-

fter a decade of living and working in Japan, country singer and songwriter Laurie Thain is back home again, and will be hosting a Christmas concert across the river, in Maple Ridge. Just finishing up her master’s thesis in teaching English as a second language, Thain said she’s excited to be back home with a new show – aptly named I’ll Be Home for Christmas – in St. Andrew’s Heritage Church Hall in Haney. Thain, formerly a Maple Ridge resident and now living in the Willowbrook area of Langley, was a profesLaurie Thain has returned home sional musician in Canada from Japan, and will hold her for 23 years before heading first Christmas concert at St. to Japan to teach and study. Andrews Sunday. Before she left, she hosted more than 40 “little original music concerts” in the little church hall. “These are not religious concerts; we just love that little church hall, and we perform original acoustic country/easy listening music there,” Thain said. While pursuing her master’s degree in teaching from Aston University in England this past decade, and teaching children in Japan to speak English, it’s no huge surprise to find that Thain incorporated a lot of music in her teachings. “I use music to teach young children English, and am now published in that area, and writing songs and chants for Oxford University Press in New York,” she said. “It sounds more impressive than it is, but it is a start in a new and very promising direction,” Thain elaborated. Her event this weekend will be similar in many ways to her classroom work in recent years: it will be a small, acoustic afternoon Christmas concert and tea, an intimate event where she can catch up with old friends. It will be on Sunday, Dec. 18, at 2:30 p.m. The hall is at 22279 116th Ave., Haney. Tickets are $12/adults and $10/ students and seniors, with children 12 years and younger admitted by a donation to a children’s Christmas charity. Reservations are recommended by calling Laurie Thain at 604-530-6530 or Blair and Marlene at 604-466-9773, or email purepacificmusic@gmail.com.

Olympians win events, set records Last weekend was a very busy one for a number of Langley Olympians Swim Club (LOSC) swimmers. Hillary Metcalfe, 13, was in Oregon as a member of Team BC competing at the Paul Bergen Junior International meet. Meanwhile, most of LOSC’s national and provincial group swimmers were in Victoria at the PCS Xmas Cracker Invitational meet, and six swimmers from the Olympians’ provincial and regional group were at the Haney Holiday LMR meet. Local swimmers came away with many top placings, qualifying times, and best times, plus a couple of new club records.

At the Paul Bergen meet, Team BC was competing against teams from Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Ontario, Quebec, and a number of Oregon teams. There was also a junior international team from Germany taking part. At 13, Metcalfe was one of the youngest athletes competing. Metcalfe finished fourth in the consolation final of the 50-metre breaststroke, setting a new club record along the way in a time of 33.48 seconds. She was also fifth in the 100m breaststroke consolation final. At the PCS Xmas Cracker event, LOSC’s top three placings included:

Obituaries

BUCK, William Deryck “Rick”

aged 88 years passed away peacefully at Langley Memorial Hospital on November 30, 2011. A gentle and noble man, Rick will be lovingly remembered by his dear friends Fran Greenwood, Cliff and Jean Allen, Siobhan, Denise (Rob), and Sara Muddiman (Adam, and children Emma and Sam). He was predeceased by parents William and Evelyn Buck, sister Anne, brother Brian, and wife Wendy. Born in Swallownest and educated in England, Rick served in World War II (Royal Navy) and emigrated to Medicine Hat AB with his wife in 1953. He arrived in Langley in 1955, taking up teaching duties at LSS, and subsequently as school principal throughout the district for many decades. A UBC Education program alum (1965) and SFU Associate in Education (1966), Rick was also deeply involved in many aspects of community life, supporting Scouts, Cadets and boys and girls clubs, and helping to found various theatre, ukelele, French, and soccer programs in both the Langley area and school system. He was a lifelong Rotarian, past President of the Rotary Club of Langley, Paul Harris Fellow, Rotary exchange program host, Mason, and lifetime member of the Probus Club of Langley. Rick was also had wide-ranging hobbies and interests including international travel, barber-shop singing, music, power squadron, ballroom dance and sports (cricket and soccer). Rick thought globally and acted locally, and his contributions were recognized by many awards including the Langley Senior Citizen of the Year, the Eric Flowerdew Award and the Golden Jubilee Medal. If friends so desire, memorial donations can be made to the Rotary Club of Langley.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Cancer June 21-July 22: Get everything done on the home front Sunday/Monday, because midweek begins a month of opportunities, excitement and fresh horizons – you’re going to want the freedom to act on new openings, especially in romantic and social zones. Tuesday/Wednesday spark romantic urges, creative talents, pleasure and speculative success. The month ahead does feature opportunities, but opposition and challenge also – be flexible, diplomatic. If single, you could meet true love in a work-related group (Saturday?) but he/she will be deeply stubborn inside, so make sure you want “the whole package.” Leo July 23-Aug. 22: This is a fine, happy week, although romance, adventure and pleasure are winding down. (Still, you’ll give and receive love messages for weeks to come – perhaps from your kids.) If you’ve started a love relationship since Nov. 25, look at it carefully Sunday: is it worth continuing? Is there a major potential flaw which you might be ignoring (e.g., she likes society and you live in a backwoods cabin)? Love relationships in 2011 tend to mingle with ambition, which can leave love in second place. Midweek’s restful. The month ahead brings work. Love, not temper, Friday a.m. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: You’ve had a nice long rest, a “down home” time. That ends midweek, when a month of romance, creativity, adventure, pleasure and speculation begins – you’ll ride a winning streak, one that could bring a potential life mating. (To some: most Virgos will meet their big love 2012 to 2025.) A lucky mid-2011 to mid-2012 trend nudges you to settle in a foreign country, or to combine idealistic love with a nesting instinct. Either of these could bring major action soon (Wednesday/Thursday bring clues.) Chase money Sunday/Monday. Midweek’s restless – follow your curiosity.

Aries March 21 - April 19: Relationships fill Sunday/Monday. So do contracts and negotiations, opposition and serious attraction. Life’s circumstances tumble across us and form our path. Sometimes another tumbles down the same channel. The beneficial relationships appear after noon Sunday, not before. Be careful with money and investments Tuesday/Wednesday. Thursday/Friday’s international, legal, cultural or intellectual interests form an entry to ambition. A month of ambitions starts Wednesday—it would be a good time to start projects, but a partner/ client (a “permitter”) must be freely onside. Go slow. Taurus April 20-May 20: Deal with chores, employment matters, health and nutrition Sunday/ Monday. You can beneficially invest in your job Sunday afternoon, Monday. Relationships become front and centre Tuesday/Wednesday, just as a month of love, understanding and wisdom start. The weeks ahead hold success in higher education, legal matters, far travel, culture, intellectual endeavours, publishing, religion and love. This week, your personal efforts succeed, especially midweek. But retiring or dealing with the government holds problems. Thursday/ Friday’s mysteries contain an echo of earlier December. Gemini May 21-June 20: You could fall in love Sunday/Monday, but if you do, make sure it’s after Sunday noon (PST). Tackle chores and health concerns Tuesday/Wednesday – avoid background activities, collusion or unethical temptation. (Even innocent government-related actions could incur the criticism of “legal hawks.”) Relationships bless you Thursday/ Friday (and can solve any problems that arose Tuesday). But a surprise awaits, too, one that could spur you to alter your social plans/outlook. Midweek begins a lucky month of financial action, accurate hunches, sexual urges, research, secrets and mysteries.

Dec. 18 - 24, 2011

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Your energy, charisma, effectiveness and timing are tops Sunday/Monday. Sunday morning might present a problem, or an insight into a soon-to-occur action. (This action/event could be purchase of a residence, a home move, children’s programs, or a gardening or soul project.) Chase money Tuesday/Wednesday (but be careful with purchases). Wednesday begins a month of rest and family, domestic, security, property, retirement concerns. A major venture (investment, home purchase, surgery, lifestyle change, intimate affair) has stalled since August: soon it will move forward, swiftly. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Lie low, rest, contemplate and plan Sunday/Monday. Your energy returns Tuesday/Wednesday – others notice you, try to please you. Chase money Thursday/Friday, buy/sell – but don’t buy machinery, computers, electronics, etc., until Friday afternoon/eve. Friends, news or a short trip give you good ideas Saturday. Midweek begins a month of reports, paperwork, communications and travel. One friendship might ebb for awhile, but your home and family will more than fill the gap, as they show affection now into mid-January. Soon, an anticipated opportunity or relationship will “start.” Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy and charisma stay high, but midweek (to late January) shifts your focus to earnings, purchases, possessions and sensual urges. Optimism and popularity fill Sunday/Monday – a wee wish will come true. Retreat to catch a second wind Tuesday/Wednesday. Contemplate two things: the few weeks ahead, and a project or idea that arose in the late spring or summer, then stalled. This project will likely speed forward over the next six months – plan how to re-launch it. It involves work, machinery, health or money. Shift to a lower gear in pleasure, love, for awhile.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Be restful Sunday to Friday – you’re about to emerge (Wednesday, though you won’t really feel it until Saturday) into a 30-day phase of heightened energy, alertness, effectiveness and charisma. Sunday/Monday nudge you to ambition – all’s smooth, you communicate well. Your hopes and general joy rise Tuesday/Wednesday. A flirtation, even a developed love, is fruitful/lucky, almost in a hidden way. Rest deeply Thursday/Friday. You might need to split with a family member, which can close a source of money. (Just as well.) A stalled romantic or creative venture will revive soon. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Don’t shop before noon Sunday. This day and Monday bring a sweet, mellow mood and a broader understanding – of life, society, religion’s role, etc. Be ambitious Tuesday/ Wednesday – all’s smooth. You might stumble upon a lucky break in home, property, retirement, security or similar zones. (This week is a good time to quit a job, if you’ve been planning to do so.) A month of rest, retreat, of spiritual quietude, charity and perhaps government-related chores, begins Wednesday – but it doesn’t affect you until Saturday. Thursday/Friday brings hope and an uncomfortable friend. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: You might have to figure out a mystery (of finances/investment, or of love, of emotions, of commitment and consequence) Sunday/Monday. Realize investments made now will be merely OK (unexciting returns). Midweek brings profound thoughts, gentleness and love. A money relationship might hit an unexpected barrier; a rather new personal link grows, a friendship begins to form. Be ambitious all week, especially Thursday/Friday. Show higher-ups what you can do. Be eager, social, a team player. An exciting month of social delights, optimism, popularity and flirtation starts this week! timstephens@shaw.ca

The band Sweet Max filled the room with music during the second annual Community Cares Food Bank Fundraiser Saturday night in Aldergrove. The soirée at the Royal Canadian Legion Aldergrove branch offered a mix of activities for all ages. People were asked to bring donations for the food bank to help those in the community who are struggling to obtain food. Donations go to the Langley Food Bank which provides services to Aldergrove. A total of $3,268.35 was raised, $824.80 of which came from sales of the Our Community in Your Kitchen cookbook. As well, 515 food items were collected for the local food bank.
