Keith Honeywell, a band teacher at Surrey’s Johnston Heights Secondary, brought his trumpet and performed songs, including When the Saints Go Marching In. The provincial government maintains that public sector employees accept its net zero mandate of no pay increases. On the first day of this week’s three-day strike, Education Minister George Abbott was critical of teachers’ tactics. “Last week, I introduced Bill 22, which sets a cooling off period and suspends the teachers’ union strike action while calling on the assistance of a mediator. It also implements the $165-million Learning Improvement Fund and other measures that will play a fundamental role in the future of education in our province,” he said. “Unfortunately, before Bill 22 was even tabled, the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation was moving to escalate their strike. The union has since ramped up the rhetoric and distorted what Bill 22 seeks to accomplish.” The Labour Relations Board ruled that teachers could strike three days this week and one day per week after that. Teachers are expected to be in class Thursday. Friday in the Langley District is a Professional Day and spring break starts next week when students will be out of class.

Langley firefighters and residents are getting ready in case the Brookswood arsonist strikes again. In the last 30 days, four fires have been set, and police suspect they are linked to the same person or persons. The arsonist has thrice targeted Brookswood Baptist Church, torching a construction trailer outside and twice breaking in to attempt to set the building on fire. Sprinklers and firefighters kept the majority of the building intact and the church has remained open. Last weekend, early Sunday morning, a portable at Noel Booth Elementary was broken into and set on fire. One portable of a set of three was destroyed and two more suffered water damage. The Langley Township fire department is preparing for any future arsons in the area. “We will make sure that the RCMP is involved immediately,” said assistant chief Bruce Ferguson. The department is also preparing a geographic profile, to try and determine where the arsonist is likely to strike. These profiles are based on multiple fires, and can help the department prevent further incidents. Ferguson said that several years ago, the department was dealing with a serial arsonist in Aldergrove who was torching dumpsters, several times a night.

Drug shortage

hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Work is being done to avoid disruptions during a Canadawide shortage of certain medications used primarily in hospitals, Health Minister Michael de Jong said. Drug manufacturer Sandoz Canada, which is a key supplier of the country’s injectable drugs, has temporarily suspended manufacturing and/or reduced the amounts produced of a number of its products due to operational issues. • More online

The Cactus Club is planting itself in Langley. The B.C.-based club chain will open in a new building at 200th Street and the Langley Bypass. Langley City council gave its approval at its March 5 meeting. “This project could have gone anywhere in the Lower Mainland,” Councillor Ted Schaffer commented. The two-storey building that used to be home to auto shops, a computer firm, industrial businesses and even the campaign office for Langley MP Mark Warawa during elections is making way for a new singlestorey development by Rockcliffe Estates Ltd. The development is 21,550 square feet, including 7,300 for the club which will seat about 185 people as well as patio space for 122 and a covered space for people waiting to enter. The project will have three retail units east of the restaurant. “It’s going to be high-end fashion,” said Gharaei. She explained that municipal zoning requires the retail units to be at least 4,000 square feet in this area so only high-end businesses can afford to set up shop in such a space. The project has been designed

City council approved the development Monday evening and on Tuesday, the demolition was well underway for the complex. to integrate with the existing power centre, Riocan Langley Centre. There will be one right in/right out entry point on the bypass and access through the power centre. The new facility’s design picks up on elements of the power centre to integrate the look of the area. The project had to take into consideration the drainage and ditch that runs along the north side of the property. Landscape architect Meredith Mitchell said

they will be creating a feature corner at 200th and the bypass. As well the project will include features to lessen traffic noise, such as a water feature, taller planters, and vegetation. The Cactus Club also has establishments in Vancouver, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Delta, West Vancouver, Kelowna, Nanaimo, North Vancouver, Richmond, Victoria, Surrey and Abbotsford, as well as Calgary and Edmonton. The subject property was originally developed in the 1970s

under a Land Use Contract. The contract permited a number of quasi-industrial land uses that the City no longer considered appropriate for this high profile site while more recent commercial uses allowed in the C2 Service Commercial Zone are restricted or not permitted at all. City council has to rescind the land use constract, a development method used years ago but no longer used today, to allow the commercial zoning of the area to apply to this 1.9 acre site.

men’s names, one of them sent up a red flag. The man was wanted on an outstanding arrest warrant, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP. While police were headed down to the hotel, they were tipped off with more information. The men appeared to be armed, and they were unloading a variety of items from a vehicle into a hotel room. The Street Enforcement Unit of the local Mounties took over the incident, and set up a perimeter around the hotel. They then called in help from the Emergency Response Team,

Police Dog Services, and the Uniformed Gang Task Force. The Air 2 helicopter hovered overhead to offer support. When police were ready they contacted the two men in their room. The suspects refused to leave, and a two-hour standoff took place. Finally, the men walked out and were arrested without incident. Search warrants for the hotel room and the vehicle turned up 250 items, now linked to 18 or more break and enters. Three loaded handguns were found in the room. One of the men initially gave

police a fake name, but when his real identity was learned the RCMP discovered that he was also wanted on an arrest warrant. Dave Yaroslawsky, a 29year-old Surrey man, and Ivan Johnson, a 33-year-old from New Westminster, have now been charged with possessing a prohibited firearm, a string of five more gun-related charges, and with possession of stolen property. Johnson has been charged with personation for allegedly giving police a false name. Both men remained in custody this week.

Aldergrove’s Terry Sheldon is not the first rural Langley resident to worry about the noise of propane cannons. But he does think he has a solution to the problem. Sheldon spoke to the Township council Monday to suggest bringing in falcons to scare birds away from berry farms. The predatory birds would be deployed to scare away crows from

the fields, Sheldon suggested. He and a partner own a number of birds in Cuba, and Sheldon visits the island and works with them several times a year. He told the Langley Advance that his plan is not to have his falcons kill the crows. “They’re not birds of prey,” Sheldon said. “They are in the wild, but ours are tamed.” The falcons are used in Cuba to keep birds away from hotels, he said. Falconry has been used as an alternative method of bird control in several areas. Last year, the Vancouver International Airport tested using falcons as part of its program to keep bird populations near the runways down. Thousands

of birds are shot every year near the airport to reduce the number of bird strikes on airplanes. The propane cannons fire every few minutes to deter crows from eating berries before they can be picked for human consumption. Sheldon and many others have complained about the cannons over the years, saying they disturb sleep, reduce property values, and frighten domestic animals such as horses. However, banning cannons has never been possible as they are protected under provincial “right to farm” legislation, which can’t be overridden by local governments. After hearing from Sheldon, Councillor Kim Richter planned to refer the idea to Township staff for a report.

Some Brookswood teens apparently decided they had to fight for their right to party on Saturday. Several teens were treated for minor injuries after the occupants of two party buses spilled out and brawled near the McDonalds outlet close to 200th Street and 40th Avenue at about 11:30 p.m. Pepper spray was used and teens were struck with bottles during the fight, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP. Officers arrived and broke up the fight, but no one was arrested. Several teens were treated for minor injuries at the scene. The only person taken to hospital was suffering from excessive consumption of alcohol. Police couldn’t determine exactly why the fight started. “Nobody would admit anything,” Marks said. This is not the first party bus related incident in Langley involving teens and drinking. In 2010, a firm called Vancouver Party Bus was subject to a series of inspections and had most of its vehicles yanked off the road after an incident that injured two teens. Two girls, 16 and 17, fell out of a moving bus at the intersection of the Langley Bypass and Fraser Highway. Most of the teens aboard the bus had been drinking.

Patriotism

Flag fans need a horde of helpers Organizers hope to create the world’s largest living flag in Langley.

Living Flags, like this one at the Victoria legislature in 2010, celebrate Canada Day.

by Ronda Payne

editorial@langleyadvance.com

Doesn’t everyone dream of breaking a Guinness World Record? To do so, while being patriotic, surely is a worthy goal. At least Linda Bellamy thinks so. Bellamy, a Langley resident, is hoping to break the record for “living flags” by having more than 25,000 people take part in her project on Canada Day. Living flags are made up of individuals standing in alignment, while holding up coloured paper. From the sky, they appear to be a giant flag. The community’s flag will be ready at 2:12 p.m. on July 1. “Each person will hold up a piece of poster board above their head,” said Bellamy. The poster board will later be donated to local schools for use in art classes. She expects that the 25,000 people

Debra Brash Glacier Media

will take up almost the entire 2.5 acres in front of the grandstands at the McLeod Athletic Park oval during the Township of Langley’s Canada Day event. Why undertake such a massive project? Bellamy replied, “I’m doing it as a patriotic event to celebrate being Canadian, singing happy birthday to Canada and to break the Guinness World Record.” Previous years’ attendance at the Canada Day celebration has been approximately 50,000. Bellamy should be able to draw enough individuals in red and white to the

grandstands to break the current 21,726 living flag record, set by Hong Kong Polytechnic University. With Canada Day still a few months away, Bellamy is looking for commitments from attendees and volunteers in two ways: First, you can “Like” the Langley Living Flag Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ events/162143403901911/ and confirm you will be attending. Second, if you know a group or organization that would like to get involved, contact Bellamy at lindabellamy@shaw.ca.

City may ban bug killers

Langley City council is expected to approve a pesticide ban at an upcoming meeting. by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

The Canadian Cancer Society has planted a seed with Langley City council which is now looking at banning cosmetic pesticides. The cancer society’s Christina Beck attended the March 5 council meeting to ask elected officials to ban the chemicals on private and public lands. “It only makes sense for the City to practice what it’s asking of its residents,” she said. The City would be joining about 39 other B.C. municipalities that have brought in bans. About one third of them include public lands. “Seventy per cent of Canadians support cosmetic pesticide bans,” she said. Beck noted that the chemicals don’t respect fences or property lines, and that the pesticides have significant health impacts for people. The cancer society is campaigning for pesticide bans as part of its efforts with preventable cancers. “Children are at the greatest risk,” Beck said. “They roll around on the ground. And they’re often putting things in their mouths.” She presented research that showed that costs for pest control and property management without chemicals rise for the first two years after pesticides are used but after that, the costs are lower than using chemicals. Some places, including Langley City,

use integrated pest management (IPM) where biological methods are preferred and pesticides are used as a last resort. Communities that have brought in the bylaw have seen what Beck considers a benefit to the local economy – an increase in the number of landscaping firms. Beck said cosmetic pesticides often solve the problem but have broader impacts, killing beneficial bugs. “They often hit a lot of other things as well,” she said. Beck noted that the society isn’t asking for bans for public health or safety uses, but for cosmetic uses. The society recommended that Langley City amend its draft bylaw to restrict the use and so people can’t give permission for others to use cosmetic pesticides on private property. Council has given preliminary approval to the bylaw and will make amendments before final reading. Staff will come back with some estimates for what this will cost for City lands. Councillor Dave Hall said it defeats the point if the City is not covered by the same rules as homeowners and continues to use chemicals. The banned chemicals and products would be based on lists created by the federal and provincial governments. Staff estimate it will cost about $3,000 to create educational material for residents and another $60,000 to go without pesticides on City property. Fines range from $100-$2,500 and/or jail time of up to six months if people refuse to follow the bylaw. The bylaw was suggested by the City’s Parks and Recreation Committee and would not apply to commercial sites which come under provincial law.

A portable at Noel Booth Elementary was destroyed by a suspicious fire on the weekend.

Langley Advance files

Fires started early Sunday mornings …continued from page A1

Their profile showed he was working east to west in a particular pattern or route. Once one fire was reported, firefighters would fan out and start soaking any other dumpsters on the possible route, as well as calling in the RCMP. However, the arsonist was never caught. Most firebugs start fires that won’t become noticeable for four or five minutes, and by the time the alarms are ringing, they’re gone, Ferguson said. The department also has other measures they’ll be taking to try and help police locate the suspect. The school district will be on guard, and as of mid-week, a security guard was still stationed at Noel Booth Elementary to keep watch over the site. The Langley City fire department is keeping an eye on the situation. So far all the fires have been about a mile to the south of the City, but if they see any suspicious fires, they’ll call in the police immediately, said Chief Rory Thompson.

Dale Ball, head of the Brookswood Village Merchants Association, said word has gone out to all the members to be vigilant. “That’s about all we can do,” he said. Langley RCMP have assigned the Serious Crime unit to work on the case, and they have also advised residents to avoid storing any flammable garbage or debris outside their houses. Arsonists are hard to catch, not only because they are often gone by the time a fire is noticed, but because the fires don’t leave much physical evidence. So far, all the arsons in the Brookswood area have taken place early Sunday mornings, between 3 and 5 a.m. There was a recent, quite different arson attempt last month in the Willoughby neighbourhood. At 8 a.m. on Feb. 4, someone threw a flammable liquid into the window of a condo showhome under construction. The liquid hit a drywall dryer and caused a small fire.

Information is unsettling us As purveyors of news, we should be the last people in the world to suggest that some news is too distressing. But the financial news seems to have its own, special disturbing undertone that makes us want to sit in the corner with our hands over our eyes and our ears thoroughly plugged. It’s the endless yo-yo factor that repels us. On Tuesday stock markets around the world fell sharply. Why? Well, according to the pundits, it was because of more problems with the Greek debt crisis, which could also cause a Europe-wide crisis, which could cause a world-wide crisis. So why did markets panic just one Tuesday? And more importantly, why had they been so cheerful and positive for the past two or three months? There have always been panics, booms and busts, bull and bear markets, ever since there have been financial markets. But it seems our present financial overlords – the oligarchy of bankers, bond traders, and ministries of finance that massage the flow of money around the world – have gone mad. The news about Greece has not been good for a long time. It has been either bad or very bad. In the long term, everyone thinks things will get worse before they get better. Yet traders seem to be grasping for any straw of good news as we recover from the worst recession in a generation. So stocks go up and up and up, and then down. Fast. We’ve seen stocks recover almost all the way to their pre-recession heights. Which likely means they have a long way to fall when things turn very bad again. Neither the heady rises nor the sharp plummets seem to be based on reality; it’s all fear and hope. We’ll survive, of course. But maybe we’d get along better with a little less minute-byminute coverage. The people running the economy seem to have lost their ability to think ahead more than 10 minutes. – M.C.

Too many kids getting drugged Painful truth

kids who act less mature? They’re literally less mature. At an age when brain development is rapid, we shouldn’t be surprised that 10 or 11 or 12 months makes a world of difference. But in a classroom, that translates into more Matthew Claxton attention required from the teachers, more mclaxton@langleyadvance.com talks with parents.

Text-junkies dangerous on roads

Dear Editor, Cellphone distractions are the most underrated formula for disaster. And with more than three billion cellphones on the planet right now, it is destined only to get worse. As if it isn’t already stupid enough to drive a multi-ton, moving vehicle without a seatbelt on, which basically only puts yourself (and our health care system’s finances) in danger, now we all have to concern ourselves with somebody else’s decadence, ignorance, and especially inexperience, which puts the rest of us in harm’s way along with these fools. Even if I am a bit guilty of it too, but honestly, who among us isn’t? I have been driving for

more than 30 years, but if RCMP officer Holly Marks’s numbers are correct, and distracted driving by cellphone really does contribute to 45 per cent of all car crashes in the Lower Mainland, then this situation is multiple times the threat to us that drunk driving is. Because not everybody drinks, and distracted driving is more random, rampant, and likely to occur any time of day. So now I have a suggestion. How about, just like they do to drunk drivers, police impound the deadly weapon of the number one most dangerous kind, especially for those with “N” or “L” classifications.

Voting

Writers right to complain

Dear Editor, Of the 20 or so per cent of Township voters who voted in the November elections, more than 50 per cent of us did not vote for the current mayor and council, most of the letters to the editor complaining about our council and mayor are from this group. Win Bromley, Langley Township

TransLink

Mayors safe to raise taxes Dear Editor, So the Mayors’ Council can make another decision about funding for TransLink. It’s a good thing for TransLink, as almost all of the mayors on the council have recently been elected or re-elected for three-year terms, so they can approve anything they want right now without fear of retribution at an election. Debbie Atkinson, Langley

Taking the cellphone away from half a dozen teenagers, especially for texting, even if it is only for a few days, will instantly get the message out there. Maybe even change their answering message in the meantime to, “Sorry I can’t take your call right now, because my cellphone is a danger to the public.” Or require “them” to take a cellphone safety class to get it back. It will have an immediate impact on this threat, especially once this goes viral on “their” Twitters and thousand-plusfriend Facebook pages. And forget about the fines. That obviously isn’t working. Those may be little more than a money grab to some, especially those who can afford it, and not much of a deterrent to the spendthrift, entitled scofflaws of today. And that can be applied to the rest of us crack-berry addicts, too. But take away any teenage text-junkie’s fix for even a few hours, and it will have them climbing the walls, “Jonesing” for their next fix. Only then, at least, we won’t have to read all about it on page three, or go visit each other in I.C.U. in the meantime, while we shop around for donor matches, and start digging out the body bags and cemetery plots. So go ahead, Tweet that one, you twits! But please, pull over first. Danny A. Halmo, Langley

A message from the Langley Teachers’ Association

Agriculture

The Salmon River is a productive spawning river for salmon and other fish. There are no other housing developments close to the property, and there is no supporting infrastructure there. The majority of neighboring farmers – including a current Langley Township councilor – and local river protection groups strongly oppose this development proposal. Why has the Agricultural

Agriculture

Development unbelievable

Dear Editor, It seems unbelievable that the ALR and the ALC would permit development such as the Wall proposal in Langley Township [All university plans pass 6-3, Feb. 16, Langley Advance] on any usable or arable farmland, whether it is being used or farmed at the present time. This seems to be completely outside the mandate of both government-appointed protectors of agricultural land. And it is also in opposition to the Metro Vancouver Regional Plan, in which Langley Township signed an agreement. Bays Blackhall, Langley Township

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

Land Commission (ALC) given this proposal conditional approval? If this development proceeds as planned, will other local farmers and rural property owners in the area come forward expecting approval for their ALR removal applications? The potential damage to the pristine Salmon River, neighbouring wetlands, and wildlife habitat could be extensive if this type of development and other similar proposals to follow are approved. Has there been a change in the ALC policies which would allow this type of development to go forward instead of protecting the valuable agricultural land and conservation areas in our province?

Dear Editor, A large area of agricultural land has recently been granted approval to be removed from the Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) for the purpose of a residential housing development [All university plans pass 6-3, Feb. 16, Langley Advance]. The land, at 22415 72nd Ave., is prime agricultural land with excellent soil and has been used as a viable farm operation in the past.

tions by Steven Spielberg, Disney, and others. Information from Ida Chong, Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development confirms that KFN is taking the right steps by welcoming film crews to their community. BC Film Commission data, provided by the ministry, indicated

an increase of $167 million in 2011 film and television expenditures in the province compared to 2010. British Columbia is the fourth-largest overall film and television production centre in North America contributing over a billion dollars to the provincial economy annually.

rhooper@langleyadvance.com

It’s time for some naval gazing by our community leaders. Langley’s mayors are again gearing up to share their vision for the future at the next Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce dinner on Tuesday, March 20. This will be the first time this

annual foreshadowing session will involve both City Mayor Peter Fassbender and newbie Township Mayor Jack Froese. This monthly meeting, as always, is being held at the Coast Hotel, with networking at 5 p.m. and dinner and speeches to follow starting at 6:30 p.m. Tickets and information at 604-530-6656, or info@langleychamber.com.

Support for teachers

A local business has applied

a unique twist to the current teacher job action. P&G Sausage, a deli and sausage maker located on the Langley Bypass, was offering deals to all public school teachers this week – while they were out on a three-day strike. “We’re supporting the teachers,” said P&G’s Chelsea Ealey. The store is always looking for causes to support in the community, she said. Teachers were given a 15-per-cent discount during the three-day walkout.

Big dividends coming

If you don’t think Langley has enough loonie stores, there’s another one coming. A Fortune 500 company called Dollar Tree Canada, which sells everything for $1.25, is expected to open a new, 13,000-squarefoot store on Willowbrook Drive by the middle of next week. Watch for it, with 4,300 stores in North America, this company plans to hire up to 15 associates for the new store.

Aldergrove Credit Union announced this week it is returning $1.5 million to its members. Its dividend and patronage rebate program will see big bucks returned to members, said CEO Gus Hartl, who reported another “successful” year for the financial group that operates five banking branches, four insurance offices, and a financial planning centre in the region.

Artist’s creativity ignited by hardware challenge Murrayville’s Kathleen McGiveron joins a dozen others in Fort exhibit. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

I

t doesn’t happen often, but 22-year-old Murrayville artist Kathleen McGiveron went shopping for her latest stock of art supplies at Home Depot. After all, where else would you find all the ingredients necessary to make a sculpture she’s called LMFAO – in reference to Internet slang – with the realistic body of a woodpecker in flight formed out of wire and topped off with a Woody Woodpecker-style laughing head. “The challenge arrived when I ventured down the wood aisle in search of something to mount my sculpture to,” McGiveron said. “All the wood was much too large and though it is easy enough to cut it to shape, I did not enjoy the thought of purchasing material I had no intention of using… As I was deciding on potential paths to take with this conflict, I noticed a gentleman searching through a bin of wood. Excited, I walked in that direction, and as I neared, a vertical based, white board came to my attention,” she said. Best off all, she learned from one of the hardware employees, it was in a free bin. She was welcome to help herself. “I noticed the employee thought it was strange I was so excited for the board I had taken from their bin – but I don’t care. I love what I am doing; I’m being sustainable, so why should I have to explain? Besides, it’s more entertaining letting them ponder what the possibilities of my actions are.” But, why was this artist – who usually creates with clay – so elated by her newfound treasures? Because she’s one of about a dozen members of the Fort Gallery who took on a challenge, under

Murrayville artist Kathleen McGiveron created her piece, a woodpecker made of wire and mounted on board, for the Hardware Show II. The exhibition opens this week at the Fort Gallery, and involves art from several gallery members. the guise of the gallery’s current exhibition – Hardware Show II – to create a piece of artwork with $40 or less of merchandise purchased at a hardware store. Any free art supplies for her project were seen as bonuses. Besides, proof of purchase has to be posted beside the work of art when it goes on display this week, and McGiveron was anxious to boast her tally: $7.99 for fluorescent pink spray paint, and $5.99 on her large roll of wire. The piece is a sculpted version of a painting she created previously called LOL, which is a painting in values of red and blue that portrays a stereotypical photograph of a woodpecker flying whose realist body is replaced with Woody Woodpecker’s head. “I have mounted my wire version of my painted woodpecker onto a board that has been spray painted fluorescent pink to allow it

The electric atmosphere at the “Having just gone through Emily Fort Gallery was palpable three Carr University, I am accustomed years ago, when 18 contemporary to experimenting with different

artists – each with their own personality and artistic style – put on the first Hardware Show. Essentially the group of the day, a majority of painters and a few working in three dimensions, stepped outside their comfort zones to create what fellow member and artist Kristin Krimmel called “creative” and “amazing.” “It was this show that gave me the idea to join the group,” Krimmel said. “I wanted to be part of that creative energy. I knew that I would have to live up to the expectations of this exceptional group of artists. They were willing to explore and experiment, and that’s invaluable for a serious artist. We need to step outside of our norm to move forward and discover new ways of thinking.” A few years later, the gallery is revisiting this unique challenge. “Some artists have moved on, and new members have come to fill in the complement that makes up their numbers. This means that the idea pool will bring completely new visions and the synergy will be different. Be prepared for cleverness, a great deal of humor, and interesting contemporary works that step outside of the box,” said gallery attendant Tim Fraser. Currently working as a receptionist for the City of Langley, and completing courses with the goal of becoming a high school visual arts teacher, McGiveron longs to one day teach all day long, and create art during the nights and summers. “One day, I aspire to make most of my wage as an artist.” Towards this end, she is excited to have her work displayed, even if it’s not her normal genre. McGiveron’s piece – along with those of her fellow cooperative members – officially, went on display March 7, and the show will continue until March 28, with an artists’ opening reception Friday, March 9, at 7 p.m. • A few questions and answers with this artist available online at www.langleyadvance.com

Aspiring Fort actor tackles biggest role yet as Orlando by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

W

hen it comes to theatre, the arts, and life in general, Barb Coulter serves as an inspiration to her son Dylan. The 22-year-old Fort Langley man doesn’t want to follow her into the profession of teaching, but he’s admired her on-stage and behind the scenes work with community theatre as a longtime member of Langley Players – and on that front aspired to be like her. So, when Dylan was first thrust onto the stage as an actor in Grade 8, working on an Italian form of comedy and character improv, he fell in love. “I take inspiration from her, for if she can continue doing theatre, even though she has a career as a teacher, then I know I will always be on stage as well – no matter what line of work I end up in,” Dylan told the Langley Advance. “My goal though, is to work as an actor full time, and I won’t be giving that dream up any time soon,” he said. Well, Dylan is getting his wish this week. The curtain goes up on his biggest role yet. As a third-year student at the University of the Fraser Valley, and as part of the Chilliwack campus’ theatre program, he’s stepping into the lead role of Orlando in the school’s upcoming production of the Shakespeare comedy, As You Like It. Was Dylan’s vision for his future always so clear? No, but it did become crystal pretty early on – in large part thanks to the support of his family. “Being immersed in the arts from a young age gave me a chance to explore what I was most interested in. And though I dabbled in visual art and music, theatre was what I wanted to pursue,” said Coulter, who attended Grades 1 through 12 at Langley Fine Arts School, focusing much of his energies on theatre

for the last five years. After graduating and travelling some, Dylan longed to return to theatre and applied to UFV’s theatre program in 2009. “Throughout my life my interest in theatre, and acting in particular, has continued to grow. My love of the craft has turned into a passion and a desire to find a career in theatre or film. And no matter what avenue I find, if I could work as an actor for the rest of my life, I would feel incredibly fortunate.” In addition to the classes and hands-on experience gained as part of the university theatre program, Dylan discovered what it’s like to be a working actor this past summer. He worked at Barkerville as a one of 25 historical interpreters on the streets of Barkerille Historic Town. “The job there meant a lot of time in character, drawing visitors into conversations and activities, but there were also scenes interacting with other interpreters, a town tour, and a 15-minute monologue we were responsible for writing that talked about some aspect “My goal… is to work as of Barkerville that we were interested an actor full time, and in,” he shared. “During my time there, I learned I won’t be giving that a lot about the endurance that an dream up any time soon.” actor needs to have for this kind Dylan Coulter of job, or any long run of a show. I plan to return this summer,” Coulter said, noting the experience allows him to continue his education while gaining work experience in his craft. Fort Langley’s Dylan Coulter stepped into the People can catch Dylan in As You Like It, lead role in the University of the Fraser Valley’s which opens Friday, March 9 at 7.30 p.m. at the upcoming production of As You Like It, one Chilliwack campus theatre and plays March 10, 15of Shakespeare’s beloved romantic comedies. 17, and 22-24, with matinees March 18 and 25 at 2 He plays the role of Orlando, positioned along p.m. and March 8 and 14 at noon.

1932: Library short $64

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

Eighty Years Ago

March 3, 1932

Seventy Years Ago

March 5, 1942

• For the second time in a row, Langley led the Fraser Valley, from New Westminster to Boston Bar, in reaching its $160,000 Victory Loan objective. • Extension of electric light and power lines in rural districts of B.C. stopped for the rest of the war.

Sixty Years Ago

March 6, 1952

• B.C. Tel installed 43 new telephones in Glen Valley. • Langley Ratepayers’ Association demanded immediate action by the provincial government to stem rising costs of education to municipal taxpayers.

Fifty Years Ago

March 8, 1962

• Premier W.A.C. Bennett

Forty Years Ago

March 2, 1972

• Bronze grave markers were approved by council for use in Langley Township cemeteries. Only granite had been approved previously, because of concerns that metal markers would be pitted by chemical fertilizers and pesticides used in the burial grounds. • Langley’s Centennial Committee agreed to give $600 to the Langley 100th Birthday Committee. The money was left over after Centennial activities.

Thirty Years Ago

March 3, 1982

• Langley School Board sent a “strongly worded message” to the Ministry of Education, protesting a provincial demand that the local schools’ budget be cut by $897,000, which would result in the loss of about 57 teaching jobs. • Langley New Democrats

Twenty Years Ago

March 4, 1992

• Slow bookings, probably due to a faltering economy, forced Langley Chamber of Commerce to cancel the annual Langley Home and Recreation Show. • School trustees predicted local staff layoffs due to cuts in provincial funding. • City council threw its support behind the Lamont family’s quest to free Christine Lamont from the Brazilian jail where she had been imprisoned for kidnapping. • A Langley rape victim was angry that her attacker was granted 24 hours per month of “unescorted temporary absence” from prison, four years into his jail term. The man had broken into her bedroom while she slept, stabbed her several times, and raped her. He was caught two months later, after she recognized him from his wedding photograph in a newspaper.

Ten Years Ago

March 5, 2002

• Lawyers for former Township councillor and failed

mayoralty contender Heather McMullan threatened to sue the Township for money owed them for fighting her defamation suit.

March 8, 2002

• Unions and women’s advocates planned to celebrate International Women’s Day by renewing their calls for Langley MLA Lynn Stephens’s resignation as Women’s Equality Minister, in response to claims she made in an interview with the Langley Advance that women’s inequality was their own fault, and that poor people should simply “make more money.” • Langley School District placed most of the blame for a $6.2-million budget shortfall on the provincial government’s decision to award teachers a salary increase without providing districts with funding to offset the raises.

Crop rotation is key to healthy, pest-free vegetable gardens change would help. It would also be useful if you got one or two bags of organic compost to use as top dressing along the bed If you want to try growing pumpkins again, a bag of manure would also be useful to dig into their designated spot. Pumpkins need very rich soil. But even with rich soil, you just don’t have enough room in your long, narrow garden bed to grow big pumpkins for Halloween carving. But there are compact varieties of pumpkins, squash, and zucchini that don’t need nearly as much space. Names of these bush vine varieties include ‘Snack Jack’ which produces bowling ball size pumpkins, ‘Table King Bush acorn’ which produces small winter squash and ‘Black Beauty Zucchini.’ About your carrots: I wonder how easy it is to cultivate the soil deeply in your retaining wall bed. It’s important to grow carrots in loose soil where it’s easy for their roots to penetrate. They hate clay. You’d possibly be more successful with the ‘Danvers’ heirloom carrot. This has short stubby roots which tolerate difficult situations well. I should mention that if

Anne Marrison is happy to answer garden questions. Send them to amarrison@shaw.ca

Dear Anne:

“I could really use some advice on how to get the most out of my very limited garden. It is long, narrow and inside a retaining wall. Tomatoes do very well. I have tried planting chives, cabbage, cucumber, mint, peppers, pumpkin, and carrots. Pumpkins and carrots usually don’t do very well. I really wish I could grow them. Do you have any suggestions on how I should plan my garden this year?”

Julia Nygra, email Dear Julia, rop rotation would help immensely. This spring, try planting each of your vegetables in a different spot from the place it occupied last year. This makes it harder for any pests to increase in numbers to the point they cause major trouble because they’ll have to go looking for food. Even a small

there are stones or rocks in your soil, carrots often develop forked, misshapen roots, which sometimes are quite hairy. Another hazard is the carrot rust fly. The carrot variety Flyaway and also Resistafly are less attractive to this fly than other carrots. Some crops take up very little space if you grow them

vertically and the soil at their feet can be used for other plants such as green onions or parsley. Cucumbers do very well climbing a small trellis. It’s also possible to grow pole beans up an obelisk. I’m sure one reason your tomatoes grew so well is because concrete blocks are a heat sink – absorbing warmth from the sum-

fast-growing salad crops in that place; arugula or radishes perhaps. Try to keep a very close watch on the mint. It’s incredibly invasive. If it gets its roots between those big concrete retaining blocks it will be very hard to control its spread. Transplanting the mint into a separate container might save you a lot of grief in the future.

Junior A hockey

Rivermen bump slump After suffering a series of one-goal losses, Langley’s junior A hockey team finally found itself on the winning side of the ledger, after taming the Alberni Valley Bulldogs on Sunday afternoon. sports@langleyadvance.com

The Langley Rivermen’s losing skid came to a screeching halt Sunday afternoon at the Langley Events Centre. Langley’s junior A hockey team closed out its 2011/12 home schedule with a 3-1 win over the Alberni Valley Bulldogs. The win snapped Langley’s six-game slump. Both teams were playing their third game in three days and put on a good show for the fans. It was the seventh meeting of the season between the clubs, with the Rivermen seeking revenge after the Bulldogs upset them in overtime the previous week.

University women’s volleyball

Spartans finish fifth at CIS tourney The Trinity Western University Spartans are getting quite familiar with placing fifth in Canada. Fifth is where the Spartans ended up at the 2012 CIS women’s volleyball championships in Hamilton, after beating the Saint Mary’s Huskies Sunday at the Burridge

Gymnasium on the campus of McMaster University. This marks the third time the Spartans have finished fifth at the national tournament after winning the consolation match in 2009, beating York in the fifth place game, and in 2006, beating Alberta in the fifth place game. TWU finished third at last year’s national championship, defeating Alberta in the bronze medal contest. After winning the first set in fine form, the Spartans lost the second set, after allowing Saint Mary’s to

earn five points in a row to end the set. The Spartans then fought back to take the third and fourth sets by four and five points, respectively. TWU finished the 2011/12 season with a 20-13 overall record and a 3-2 record in the post-season. After falling to Montreal in the national quarter-final Friday, Trinity Western beat both Queen’s and Saint Mary’s to finish 2-1 at the CIS tournament.

Express win in waning seconds – again of pucks towards the young Langley ’keeper as they had 21 shots on goal after the first frame. The second period was a different story for the home side. It was a much better effort as the ’Men’s top goal-getter Mario Puskarich tallied back-to-back tallies on similar plays, streaking down the left-wing and putting a pinpoint wrist shot past Express goaltender Cole Huggins for his 28th and 29th markers of the season. The lead did not last very long as Coquitlam’s Justin Georgeson capitalized on a powerplay to get the Coquitlam lead back at 3-2.

The third period was by far the most entertaining of the three. Langley’s Peter McMullen tied the game on a beautiful rush down the rightwing, culminated by a laser shot that sailed beneath the blocker of Huggins to even up the score. The Express once again regained the lead a few shifts after McMullan’s tying tally, courtesy of Alex Petan on a nifty shot that beat Renyard on the short side. The Rivermen to their credit did not panic as Langley rookie Jackson Playfair tipped home a point shot on a powerplay to send the home fans into

a frenzy, evening the score at 4-4. Just when overtime looked like a very good possibility, that unwanted groundhog popped up his head. With 26 seconds to go in regulation, Coquitlam’s Zach Hodder pounced on a loose puck to score, and lay the dagger into the Rivermen. • More online at www.langleyadvance.com, click on “Sports”

Junior B hockey

Kodiaks’ blowout puts Flames on verge of elimination Ridge Meadows, which placed fourth in the Harold Brittain with an 11-32-10 mark, had some hope heading into Monday’s contest. The Flames were coming off a 5-2 win in game three of the series, played last Friday, March 2, at Planet Ice. But the Kodiaks didn’t give the Flames a chance to breathe. Aldergrove led 3-0 after the first period and were up 5-0 until the 9:57 mark of the middle frame, when Matthew Bissett got the home team on the board. Ridge Meadows’ Keagan Hunter scored early in the final frame, but after that

head coach Tim Preston said. The Kodiaks – who finished on top of the PIJHL’s Harold Brittain Conference with a 28-13-2-1 regular season record – carried a 3-1 lead in games into last night’s (March 7) contest at Aldergrove Arena. The potentially series-clinching contest was played after the Langley Advance went to press Wednesday afternoon. Wednesday morning, Preston told the Advance, “We don’t expect it to be an easy game. We expect it to be a war, to be a battle. We know they are going to play hard.”

Hockey fans in Maple Ridge witnessed a Kodiak mauling Monday night. The Aldergrove Kodiaks thrashed the Ridge Meadows Flames 8-2 at Planet Ice Maple Ridge, in the fourth game of their best-of-seven, opening round playoff series. The win put the Kodiaks one step away from ending the Flames’ Pacific International Junior Hockey League season. “I think when we put our best foot forward, we’re pretty tough to contend with five-on-five,” Kodiaks’

it was all Kodiaks with Thomas Hardy scoring twice to complete his hat trick and Ryan Procyshyn capping the scoring with 2:07 to play in regulation. Hardy, who ended up tied for the PIJHL’s regular season scoring title with 73 points, led Aldergrove with three goals and one assist. Also scoring for Aldergrove was Brandon Potomak, Stephen Ryan, Procyshyn, Daniel Higgs, and Scott McHaffie. “We came at them pretty hard and set the tone early, and I think their guys got frustrated and let their emotions get the best of them,” Preston said.

Discipline was a factor. The Kodiaks went 4-10 with the man advantage while the Flames were scoreless on four powerplay opportunities. The stat that jumps off the scoresheet is the shots total in the third period: 29-1 in favour of the Kodiaks. Helping inflate those shot totals was the Flames amassing 64 minutes in penalties in the third period alone. The Kodiaks didn’t pick up a single penalty minute in the final frame. All three of the Kodiaks’ third-period goals came on the powerplay.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: This is your last week of weariness, obligations, restrictions and low charisma. Be spiritual, charitable, and clean up lingering threads with government and “head office.” Avoid new projects now through April 3. You’re heading into indecisiveness – or mistakes – in your work zone. (You, co-workers, or those on another level, might misunderstand directions and communications, which can cause the mistakes; be alert, and ask if you feel confused.) Sunday/Monday bring mystery, and lucky financial action. Be duteous Tuesday to Friday: a possibly momentous career development looms. Taurus April 20-May 20: It’s your last week of wishing and hoping, of socializing and happiness, so enjoy it to the fullest. A major relationship might start this week, or you might stumble upon a major opportunity, negotiate/litigate successfully, or relocate. Yet another major phenomena – Mercury retrograde, says don’t start anything new, nor make any big commitments, un-doable changes, or promises now through April 3. But if you look carefully, that relationship, relocation, negotiation, etc., might be a form of correcting a past mistake. (Likely one that occurred in the past three months.) Gemini May 21-June 20: What is it? A past good or bad deed coming due? Or a revision to a big step you took before (perhaps recently, since November 2011)? Or something you’ve long wanted or planned on? In any case, three things are happening now: 1) indecision, mistakes and delays affect ongoing projects, and will cripple brand new ones; 2) the past, past contacts, ideas, ventures, situations, tend to recur; and 3) almost every day this week, good fortune affects your financial, debt, investment, sexual, deep health and research activities. Be optimistic and brave – by next week, you’ll celebrate.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Start nothing new before April 4. Until then, protect ongoing ventures from delays, mistakes and indecision – have a “Plan B” ready. Make lists before you shop, doublecheck addresses, dollar figures, etc. I’ve told you for several years that 2008 to 2023 will bring true love – this is one of the weeks this might occur, especially Sunday/Monday or Thursday/Friday. However, this relationship might have some connection to the past – e.g., introduced by a “long lost” friend or relative, or he/she’s connected to a job/career you once held, etc. A big wish can come true! Communicate. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Start nothing brand new before April 4. Protect ongoing projects and relationships from misunderstandings, shortages and delays (especially in financial, intimate, health, legal, travel, educational and cultural zones). Welcome resurrected or returning ventures and people from the past – important success potential lies here. You could flow into major luck/success in career, work, earnings, possessions and money. (In all this, your “foundations” are key – property, home, family. Examine/improve these Sunday/Monday.) A former sweet, sensual person (or boss) might return. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Start nothing new before April 4. Until then, protect ongoing projects, situations and relationships from mistakes, delays and misunderstandings; and, this week, at least, welcome/resurrect links and ventures from the past. Great happenings, splendid fortune, can come from the past now (this Sunday to Friday) especially in legal, international, cultural, love, intellectual, educational, travel, romantic, creative, speculative and child-oriented zones. Be proactive; try everything in these zones that has a “past connection.” E.g., a returning relationship could lead to marriage.

Mar. 11 - Mar. 17, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Start nothing new before April 4, especially in relationships, litigation, negotiation, public interfacing, and work, health and diet zones. Protect ongoing projects and links from mistakes, delays and misunderstandings. There is one “escape” from what seems like a dead-end: the past. This week, especially, people and projects returning from the past can be a huge blessing – primarily in real estate, home, family, security, garden, investment, lifestyle, health and sexual zones. E.g., a home you’ve always wanted becomes available. Buy it! Someone might return, offer intimacy. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Start nothing new before April 4, especially in social, sexual, financial, group, health and lifestyle zones. A real success might come in the present week in relationships, relocation, partnering (in love or business) dealings with the public, negotiations, litigation, and communications, travel and paperwork – IF a past connection exists. E.g., beginning a new lawsuit, advertising campaign or relationship, will likely fail; but re-establishing a relationship or finishing a neglected application could lead to great success. Communication important. Love, romance, joy exist! Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Until April 4, start nothing new. Instead, protect ongoing projects and relationships from mistakes, misunderstandings and delays. (E.g., your factory might run out of steel fittings halfway through a major order: so order much more, or pay a premium for quick delivery, etc.) Until April, past contacts and ventures offer openings and success. An old flame might return. The week ahead offers huge success in earnings, work and health (and to some degree in sensuality). A hidden (former) ally could be instrumental – or a government agency, institution. Remember, the “past!”

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: I keep telling you a new future, new hopes and goals and a new social circle, will come to you (2009-2023) via the difficulties that seem to beset you. (Moaning about your losses would be like renovating your house, and wailing about the destruction of old walls, even though you know the end product will be splendiferous. You are being renovated, by life, by God.) You take a giant step toward this future this week – by resurrecting the past. Do so! Romance, a risk, a speculation, a creative accomplishment are involved. Legal, travel, cultural zones also benefit. Huge luck here. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Start nothing before April 4. Protect ongoing projects from mistakes, delays, shortages and misunderstandings. Your “connections” to the past could prove very fruitful this week. A returning project, person or situation can bring splendid luck in financial, sexual, health, research, management, real estate, family, home and government-institution-corporate zones. Jump on anything “returning” here. (E.g., a house you deeply desired now comes back on the market – seize it.) A former friend might appear; this isn’t really an old flame. Indirectly, money/career receive a boost. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Start nothing new before April 4. Until then, protect your ongoing interests from false moves, misunderstandings, mistakes and delays. Have a “Plan B.” Your energy and charisma remain high. Many, many strands from past actions come together this week in an explosion of luck and significance. Don’t hesitate; do act – but preferably on something from the past or connected to it. The major areas affected are relationships, money/ earnings, possessions, important communications or travel connected to your career or social standing, and group affairs. A wish will come true. timstephens@shaw.ca
