open in 2013, and the first middle school. But Skinner gave more precise numbers for the total schools needed. “We’re looking at about 11 schools,” he said of elementary levels, including the existing and planned schools. There will be four middle schools and two secondary schools, including R.E. Mountain, which will have to be expanded. Aside from the schools already approved and planned to open between now and 2014, the province has not yet released money or hard information to allow the construction of more buildings.

A new middle school planned to open its doors in Willoughby in 2014 will be over capacity from day one, the Langley School District expects. On Tuesday evening, parents in Willoughby met with district staff and trustees at R.E. Mountain Secondary for the last of the Long Term Facilities Plan community meetings. Consultant Hugh Skinner walked parents through charts showing the expected enrolment at the elementary, middle, and secondary levels, and talked about the issues facing one of the province’s three fastest growing regions when it comes to schools. “Obviously, lots of growth, lots of pressure, lots of overcapacity,” said Skinner, who saw similar pressures as a former facility planner for the Surrey school district.

“As you can see, the trend is just going to be upward.” Hugh Skinner

“Obviously, lots of growth, lots of pressure, lots of overcapacity.” Hugh Skinner

At present, there are three elementary schools, Willoughby, R.C. Garnett, and Langley Meadows, serving the neighbourhood. They have a capacity for 1,139 students without portables, but have 1,706 enrolled this year. In September, the opening of Lynn Fripps Elementary will take some of the pressure off, with capacity jumping to 1,615 students, but enrolment is expected to go up to 1,973. Another school opens in 2013, raising capacity of 2,091, but enrolment is expected to hit 2,223 that year. The opening of the middle school, which will absorb Grade 6, 7, and 8 students starting in 2014, is expected to finally bring Willoughby’s elementary schools below capacity for two years. However, the middle school is

Consultant Hugh Skinner talked about school expansion in Willoughby Tuesday night. expected to open its doors with a capacity for 750 students, and an anticipated enrolment of 834. That will jump to 899 the next year and 997 by 2016. “As you can see, the trend is just going to be upward,” Skinner said. R.E. Mountain Secondary has a current capacity of 775 and an enrolment of 989, expected to rise to 1,115 before the middle school takes some pressure off. However, that will still not reduce the school’s student population to capacity. Skinner has been working with

Langley Township to compile numbers of existing students in the Willoughby area, including those who attend special district programs such as fine arts or fundamental schools, and those who attend classes outside of Langley. “It’s not going to be exactly these numbers,” he told the 50plus parents and staffers at the Tuesday night meeting. Langley is looking at a program of rapid school building over the next few years. It has already acquired land and provincial money for Lynn Fripps Elementary, the elementary to

After Skinner’s presentation, parents broke into groups to talk about priorities for their neighbourhood and the district as a whole. Concerns about overcrowding were common, among both Willoughby and R.C. Garnett parents. Parents are worried about having too many portables. Other parents feared that rapid growth will damage the community at Willoughby Elementary, or that the rapid expansion will see children changing schools two, three, or four times including the switch to middle and high school. Other parents still want answers on school placement. Lynn Fripps and the next new elementary will go into north Willoughby, which will ultimately be highly populated. But parents around R.C. Garnett want a new school closer to their area, which is already highly populated. Trustee Rod Ross said the comments from parents at all the meetings will be collected and a full report is expected by the end of May, and will hopefully be released to the public by the end of June. Although the round of meetings is over, parents can still send input to the district online. Information about the facilities plan process can be found at www.sd35.bc.ca, and email can be sent to facilitiesplanfeedback@ sd35.bc.ca.

Jody Beugeling calls her style of modeling ‘a modern spin on the classic pin-up.’ by Troy Landreville sports@langleyadvance.com

You could say stay-at-home mom Jody Beugeling is an eclectic kind of gal. Wife to Shawn and mom to five-year-old Isaiah, the east Langley resident is a pin-up model with a particular enthusiasm for all things retro. This venture began as a girl’s day out, the 32-year-old Beugeling recalled. “A friend of ours is a hobby photographer, so we all got together, dressed up, did our hair and makeup, and took a whole bunch of pictures,” she said. The sort of modeling Beugeling does isn’t high fashion, or overly glamorous, she explained. “It’s got a real retro vibe,” she said. “Vintage clothes are really popular. A lot of my outfits aren’t true vintage, they’re vintage inspired.” Her photo shoots help to conjure up images of the 1940s, ’50s, and early ’60s, from Betty Page to Marilyn Monroe. But in Beugeling’s case, with an assortment of tattoos. “It’s a modern spin on the classic pin-up,” she said. “It’s really popular, actually.” Her interest in body ink started in her teenaged years. She’d sooner forget her first tattoo, only to say it’s now covered up. “It’s really embarrassing,” she said with a laugh. “I’m not going to get into that.” Tattoos are a form of self expression, Beugeling said: “I’m really artistic, theatrical, and all of this plays into my personality. I love to express myself, so having a tattoo is a form of expressing [my personality] on

You might not know much about me, but if you see my tattoos, you might know a little bit more without me even saying anything.” While the cornucopia of colour that decorates her upper chest would have likely made her stand out in a past generation, Beugeling still feels she was born in the wrong decade.

We’re speechless.

“I’m a girl who loves the retro lifestyle who lives in the modern world,” she said. “I wish I would have been old enough to be in my early 20s or even this age [32] in the later ’50s, early ’60s,” she said. The culture, and in particular, the cars of that age appeals to her. She believes it was a simpler way of life, back then. “People were more into their families,” she said. “Homecooked meal was something everybody looked forward to. You, know, Leave It To Beaver, I Love Lucy…,” Beugeling is an aspiring model who hopes to parlay her hobby into a career. She took part in a pin-up pageant at last year’s WestCoast Tattoo & Culture Show at the PNE Forum in Vancouver.

“Basically from that first pageant, I went to a lot of pageants as an audience member and learned what to do,” she said. There’s a theatrical side to her style of modeling, Beugeling said: “When you’re up on stage doing your fashion walk, each girl has a character. That’s why I have a character named Dixie Delight.” The pseudonym was derived from a poll Beugeling organized on her Facebook page. “I got all my friends to go in on it,” she said. “One good friend came up with ‘Dixie,’ and another one came up with ‘Dixie Delight.’” Beugeling has been posting pictures from her photo shoots on her fan page (www.facebook.com/DixiePinUp) and says she is about to be published in Delicious Dolls, a pin-up magazine, sometime in the next two months. “That’s my goal this year, to make it into a magazine, and then we’ll see where it takes me from there,” she said. Hubby Shawn is completely supportive, Beugeling said. “He was there at the [last] pinup pageant… cheering me on. He brought his friends.” Beugeling will be competing at the WestCoast Tattoo and Culture Show’s pin-up pageant this Friday (April 27) at 7 p.m. at the Boulevard Casino in Coquitlam. “It’s going to be really good this year,” she said. “All the girls have to have a talent. Beugeling plans on doing a monologue of the character “Cherie” from the play Bus Stop by William Inge that was adapted into a movie in 1956, and starred Marilyn Monroe as “Cherie.” Then, on June 2, she’s taking part in Revive ’Em And Drive ’Em at White Rock’s Pacific Inn.

Insurance costs drop due to firefighting speed Another rural Langley Township neighbourhood will get a break on fire insurance. Substantial insurance savings are in store for more Langley Township residents, as another rural area has received Superior Tanker Shuttle Service Accreditation by the Fire Underwriters Survey (FUS). Late last year, the Township Fire Department undertook a documentation and training process to prove that crews can quickly transport and maintain an effective water supply to fires in remote rural areas that are not serviced by hydrants or the municipal water network. Getting water to rural areas means sending tanker trucks to and from the nearest hydrants in a relay. The accreditation covered properties in southwest Langley serviced by Fire Halls 5 and 6 in Brookswood

NCE SAL A R A E E CL ON TILES

and Murrayville. As a result, residents within that recognized area are now saving 30 to 40 per cent in the fire portion of their home insurance. “Residents have been thrilled with this initiative,” said assistant fire chief Pat Walker. “Not only can people in more remote locations be confident that the fire service can competently shuttle the tankers and supply water needed to fight fires, they are also seeing big savings in the amount they are paying to insure their homes.” The Township has announced they have now received accreditation in another area. Enhanced savings are now available to northeast Langley residents. Walker noted that the new FUS approval almost fills the space between the two accredited areas. Coverage of that gap that will be completed in late May when the last round of shuttle service testing is

done in southeast Langley. While some properties won’t meet the criteria of being within eight kilometres of a fire hall and five kilometres of a fire hydrant, the majority of rural Langley will then be covered, Walker said. Residents who want to know if they are in an accredited area and qualify for reduced insurance must contact their insurance provider. The insurance provider will access the Fire Underwriters’ website to view digital maps. Residents in the accredited areas should seek an insurance provider that subscribes to the Fire Underwriters Survey to ensure they receive reduced insurance rates. To be accredited, a fire department must prove it can provide an alternative water supply that can maintain a flow of 900 litres per minute within five minutes of the fire engine arriving on scene, and sustain the water supply for two hours.

MS Walk

Walkers help fund research A walk for those living with multiple sclerosis starts 10 a.m. Sunday.

This Sunday, April 29, Susan’s Squad will make its first appearance at the annual Scotiabank MS Walk in Langley. Susan’s Squad is a fundraising team of four led by Jennifer Schmidt, inspired by MS Walk Langley chair Susan Gagnon. Gagnon was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 24 years ago and has been very active in her community to help create awareness around MS. After participating in last year’s walk, Schmidt started her own team. “Susan has always been so helpful in the community and is always there for everyone,” Schmidt said. “I mostly wanted to do this to give back to Susan.” Schmidt is a self-proclaimed people person, and admits, “Fundraising is fun for me.” She had a lot of success fundraising with activities like a hot dog sale during Easter long weekend, and now knows to start early so she has more opportunities to reach more people. Last year, 160 partici-

The Scotiabank MS Walk Langley gets underway at 10 a.m. on Sunday at the Douglas Park Recreation Centre in Langley. Susan’s Squad and other participants will walk or run to end MS, and more are invited to take part. Registration is open until Sunday morning, before the walk starts at 10 a.m., for individuals and groups. A light breakfast, snacks, and lunch will be provided.

Facts about multiple sclerosis in Canada • MS is the most common neurological disease affecting young adults in Canada. • Canada has one of the highest rates of MS in the world, with an estimated 55,000 to 75,000 people living with the disease. • MS is often debilitating, always unpredictable, and a cure still needs to be found. • MS Society of Canada fundraising has supported more than $100 million in research projects since 1948. • Canadians raise the highest amount per capita for MS research in the world. • The mission of the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada is to be a leader in finding a cure for multiple sclerosis and enabling people affected by MS to enhance their quality of life. The Society is the only national voluntary organization in Canada that supports both MS research and services for people with MS and their families.

Private sector needs incentive We get that Stephen Harper is not an environmentally friendly guy. It’s written all over his legislation. The prime minister probably doesn’t like the smell of oil – or bitumen or tar-infused sand – any more than the rest of us. And like most of us, he quite certainly appreciates the colour of money. But he doesn’t have much of a taste for the environment. Now, if he could get rid of the smell without dulling the colour, he’d probably be able to handle the taste. But Prime Minister Harper clearly does not believe that his government should be in charge of the seasoning. He has chopped the federal environmental disaster response team in half. On many occasions, he’s made it clear that he believes the public sector is inferior in any endeavour that the private sector wants to control. So fine, let the private sector prove that it can handle the environment on its own. But put some teeth into that decision. Instead of reducing our nation’s ability to respond to an oil spill or any disaster that he doesn’t believe will happen, make sure that, if he’s wrong and the unthinkable actually does occur (as it has so many, many times already), that the private sector can and will step in to do a better job than the government could. Make the companies post an environmental bond before proceeding with a riskenhancing project like a bitumen pipeline. And if (or surely when) a leak occurs, make the private sector pay every penny of the cost of cleaning it up – plus a sizeable premium to get a leg up on dealing with the next disaster. Maybe punishing environmental offenders to the full extent of their offences would justify Mr. Harper’s environmental watchdog cutbacks, as they’d have fewer tragedies with which to contend. – B.G.

Hockey

’Nucks nuts for wrong sport

Dear Editor, I watched most of the Canucks playoff games, although I am not an ardent hockey fan. Apparently, neither are a great number of Canadians. According to Statistics Canada, a mere 11 per cent of kids aged five to 15 in our country play hockey regularly. More swim, and 20 per cent play soccer, making it the largest sport, by far. And amongst the adult population, the most popular sport is golf, hands down, lost balls and all.

We may think we are a hockey-crazy nation, but only three in 10 adults follow professional hockey closely. Another startling statistic to me is the fact that, when the CBC broadcasts Hockey Night in Canada, 94 per cent of television viewers ignore the game and find something else to occupy them. We are not the ardent hockey nation we are told we are. The game has relatively few followers. Bring on the Lions and Whitecaps! Mike Harvey, Langley

Community safety

Firefighters could fight crime, too

Dear Editor, I would agree with Rick Manuel’s view that eight extra policemen would be advantageous [Police needed more than firefighters, April 17 Letters, Langley Advance], but not at the expense of an adequate number of firefighters on the job, all the time.

One concept that has been bandied about in the past is making use of “surplus firefighter time” to help the police control crime. Firefighters in marked, light duty vehicles like vans and SUVs, etc. would patrol the city in the after hours, while carrying their turn out gear with them,

Police costs

Councils taste own medicine

Dear Editor, I had to laugh when I heard the outrage of mayors and councils when they were “blind-sided” by the salary increases for members of the RCMP, now that they have signed a 20-year contract… with no discussion with them. Now the shoe is on the other foot, and the salary increases will be putting pressure on their already weakened municipal budgets. How soon they forget how they, in their wisdom and without discussion with us taxpayers, approved salary increases for themselves, higher property taxes, higher gasoline taxes, higher carbon taxes, higher ferry fares, and a huge toll on the Port Mann Bridge (which is a bridge on a federal highway), all without giving much thought as to how much pressure those decisions were putting on the taxpayers’ already weakened and overburdened budgets. But… wait for it. In order to accommodate this added burden to their budget, they have no alternative but to add another tax or add onto a current tax that we, the taxpayers, will have to absorb, again without discussion with us. D. Atkinson, Langley

ready to quickly respond to a fire-related call while their counterparts from the fire hall bring out the heavy equipment. Whereas fire calls are more medical-related or false alarms vs. actual working fires, these days I believe a great deal of expense could be avoided in quickly responding and cancelling the big stuff while assisting with a medical emergency as they wait on the chronically under-staffed ambulance service to arrive. It would cost very little, if anything, to try. The firefighters are already on duty, they have lot’s of radio and emergency responseequipped administrative vehicles which they don’t use in the off-business hours. Nothing deters troublemakers more than an organized watch on their activities 24/7, and having firefighters patrol as extra ears and eyes for the police seems like a plausible idea. I believe it has been tried in some B.C. jurisdictions already. Jeff Laurie, Langley Township

Fighter jet storm just another lie

Dear Editor, Once again, Canadians are witnessing the dishonesty of a government gone mad. Harper’s Conservatives would have had us paying $10 billion more for fighter jets than we were told.

TransLink

Tax availability of transit

Dear Editor, TransLink wants South of the Fraser to pay for those who have transit. They said there will be no new projects but those on the books, like the Evergreen line, will continue… but the rapid transit bus to 200th Street is cancelled? Taxes should be on the basis of service: if you have a full, functioning transit stop within a 10-minute walk to your residence, you pay the full amount. If the stop is 20 minutes away, you pay a reduced amount, and if it’s within 30 minutes, a marginal amount. If you use it, fine; if not, it’s available, so you still pay.

FINANCIAL ADVICE

Get Out Your Bucket List, the Prospera Valley GranFondo is Coming to the Fraser Valley Olympic cycling team, there is a shorter 80 kilometre MedioFondo which offers the same great scenery and route as the longer ride with a few less hills. There is also a fun three kilometre FamilyFondo available and the Vancouver Area Cycling Coalition will be offering a cycling safety workshop for FamilyFondo participants following the ride. With more than a few cycling enthusiasts among the ranks at Prospera Credit Union, it wasn’t difficult to get the Abbotsford-based financial institution onboard as the title sponsor and once they had a sponsor committed, it didn’t take long for the Canadian Velo Event Management Society to build up support within Fraser Valley communities and the surrounding areas. “It’s amazing to bring this phenomenal event to riders in Western Canada and the Pacific Northwest,” says Jeffrey HansenCarlson, President, Canadian Velo Event Management Society. “This would not be possible without support from our community partners and sponsors.” Half of the net proceeds from The 2012 Prospera Valley GranFondo will go towards supporting the event’s charity partner, Special Olympics BC. “This partnership is unique in so many ways and we are excited to present a GranFondo to the Fraser Valley,” says

The search for your mortgage ends now.

Bruce Howell, President and CEO of Prospera Credit Union. “The opportunity for all of us at Prospera to work with such a dedicated group of individuals who have the goal of developing a top-notch community cycling experience in the Fraser Valley and a strong commitment for raising funds in support of Special Olympics BC is incredible.” “We are honoured to be selected as the charity partner of the Prospera Valley GranFondo,” said Special Olympics BC President and CEO Dan Howe. “This community event aligns perfectly with the core values of Special Olympics BC, celebrating inclusion, sport and healthy lifestyles. There are more than 3,900 Special Olympics BC athletes throughout the province, and this event will support the year-round sport programs through which they experience joy and friendship and improve their health and skills. We are also excited that our longtime law enforcement partners are supporting this event.” A group of enthusiast riders who will take part in the Prospera Valley GranFondo recently held an awe-inspiring fundraiser to build awareness for the summer event and encourage people of all skill levels to participate. For 24 hours straight, eight cyclists, including Prospera Credit Union’s Dave Bickell , kept their

wheels spinning on the patio of Wendel’s Bookstore and Café in Fort Langley in support of Special Olympics BC. “Riding in a fondo is one of those bucket list experiences,” said Dave Bickell , who is also leading road-training rides to help other Prospera Credit Union employees train for the GranFondo. “As much as I love the personal accomplishment, it’s even more amazing to see other people achieve it for the first time, especially those who never imagined that they could do something this big.” With only 1,500 spaces available for the event and considering the amazing success of GranFondos across North America, an early sell-out is expected. The Prospera Valley GranFondo will also require hundreds of volunteers to make the ride a success—from manning water stations, to setting up the start and finish lines or driving a pace car, there are numerous opportunities for volunteers to enjoy the excitement of the event and be on-the-ground where the action is for a unique perspective. To register or volunteer, visit www.ValleyGranFondo. com. Post ride festivities for the Prospera Valley GranFondo will include an authentic First Nation’s feast on the grounds of the Fort Langley National Historic Site.

This summer, the Fraser Valley, long known as the road cycling mecca of British Columbia is set to host what is sure to become one of Canada’s premier cycling events. The inaugural Prospera Valley GranFondo takes place on July 22, 2012 centered in the historic village of Fort Langley. For the uninitiated, a GranFondo is a mass participation individual and team cycling event with riders of all ages taking part. For some, it is an opportunity to challenge their physical endurance in a highly competitive race, while for others it is simply a chance to get out on their bike and enjoy a day of riding with friends and family. The Prospera Valley GranFondo offers something for everyone with three different ride options. For the hardcore cyclists, there is an amazing—some would even say epic—160 kilometre ride featuring quiet country roadways, scenic farmland, historic river valleys and a challenging mountain summit. The traffic-controlled route has been chosen specifically to provide participants with a traditional European GranFondo experience and is a fully supported, timed event that includes hundreds of volunteers, enthusiastic spectators and aid stations.

Motivator makes special stop here

Peter Legge is still working the circuit, and this career speaker will be making a return appearance in Langley early next month. While not wanting to date myself too much, I gotta tell you that I caught this guy’s show when I was pretty fresh out of school (and I’m preparing to attend my 30year high school reunion this year). So for those of you who think I’m long in the tooth, what would you say about Mr. Legge? But I have to say he is an incredibly charismatic man and interesting business speaker, and I never tire of his presentations. This time out, the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce is hosting a special luncheon at Langley Golf & Banquet Centre, 21550 44th Ave., on Friday, May 4 to accommodate Legge. His presentation is called: We are what we think about most of the time… Believe it. Legge lives his life dream as an internationally acclaimed professional speaker, a bestselling author, and as chairman and CEO of the largest, independently owned magazine publishing company in Western Canada – Canada Wide Media Ltd. He must be doing something right. He has published 15 books that have inspired thousands of readers all around the world with his powerful motivating messages. He attributes his own achievements to three factors: patience, persistence, and a positive attitude. While the price tag for this luncheon might seem steep at $60 ($50 for chamber members), it’s not all that bad. In addition to the meal, and a chance to listen to Legge, guests walk away with a copy of his latest book 365 Days of Insights and a CD of his candid interview with Jimmy Pattison. Pretty good deal, thanks to sponsorship by Campbell, Burton & McMullan LLP, Ella’s, and Sunridge Gardens. Registration is required by calling the chamber office at 604-530-6656 or emailing events@langleychamber. com.

The federal government, through Industry Canada, is responsible for regulating radiocommunication. This includes approving each site on which radio apparatus, including antenna systems such as cell phone towers, may be located, based on Industry Canada’s general and specific technical requirements. In exercising its mandate, Industry Canada believes that it is important that antenna systems be deployed in a manner that considers local surroundings. In this regard, Industry Canada requires proponents of cell towers to follow local government policies with respect to public notification. In the Township of Langley, local requirements are contained in the Telecommunications Tower Master Plan Policy, which requires proponents to hold a community consultation meeting as part of the public consultation process. Residents with questions or comments about the proposed tower can make their views known through this public consultation process. Public input obtained by the proponents at the meeting is passed on to Township staff, for presentation to Township Council. Council does not have the authority to approve or reject cell tower applications. Council’s ability is limited to either objecting or not objecting to such installations in its referrals to Industry Canada. Council does not have legislated authority to do anything else. Should Council have no objection to the proposed installation, the proponent will be permitted by Industry Canada to proceed, subject to compliance with their requirements. In the event that Council expresses objections that are considered by Industry Canada to be relevant and the proponent still wishes to proceed with an installation, Industry Canada will make a final decision as to whether to: • approve the application; or • reject the application; or • require amendments to the application, including re-submission; or

Party at Shoppers helps cancer survivors feel better about appearance …continued from page A12

The only reason I bring this up so long after the drug store reopened in the shiny new digs, besides encouraging you to check it out, is to tell you about a little party happening next week. No, I’m not referring to

a grand re-opening. I’m talking about a provincewide bash happening on Saturday, May 5 that is intended to empower women to manage the effects that cancer and its treatment can have on their appearance. Okay, I just hate any-

thing that dictates how women should look and says that anything short of their natural beauty is unacceptable. But I know I’m not the normal, girliegirl, and that most women obsess about their appearance. I’ve talked with women battling cancer

who were driven to tears when they lost their hair or their complexion got blotchy because of a particular chemo regime. Personally, I didn’t care, almost a decade ago, when I was going through treatment. I even shaved my head the first second my

,hair began falling out. And not one for makeup, I was compared to Uncle Fester more than once. But most women care. So what Shoppers is doing by offering a day-long gala, called Pretty Little Party – with complimentary makeovers and skin TELUS AUTHORIZED DEALERS Vancouver

care consultations – seems commendable, because it raises money to help women living with cancer – women who do care. Through an organization called Look Good Feel Better, it helps fund free two-hour cosmetic and hair alternatives workshops that give women with cancer the tools and information they need to manage the effects of cancer and its treatment on their appearance. Held at more than 115 cancer care facilities and hospitals across Canada, the workshops are led by volunteers, all of whom are industry-trained cosmetic advisors and hair alternatives specialists. To date, I’m told, more than a million women have benefitted from the free workshops (see www. lookgoodfeelbetter.ca). Tickets to the Pretty Little Gala are $10, with $5 of the proceeds donated to Look Good Feel Better, and the other $5 redeemable on any purchase during the event.

Recycle and help

Speaking of giving, here are a few other ways to help – ideas being supported by local businesses in our community. First up, this weekend, Value Villages across North America are holding a two-day donation blitz with ties to Earth Day. The Donate and Make a Difference campaign runs Saturday and Sunday, including at the store in Langley’s Highland Plaza. Instead of sending those used goods, such as clothing, household items, and keepsakes to the landfill, its an extra push by this international chain of thrift stores to recycle. Year round, the stores partner with non-profit groups in the community, buying items to stock their shelves while helping fund the partnering charity. But this weekend’s campaign is designed to give those partnerships a little extra needed shot in the arm. And if Value Village isn’t speaking to you, and you’re a shoe horse, like a few people I know (my 18-month granddaughter fearfully already earning her crown as a junior shoe diva), then here’s another cause that might be more to your liking. Prospera Credit Union, including the branch around the corner from our offices (at 64th Avenue and 200th Street) is demonstrating they have heart and a lot of soles. Until the end of the month, they’re collecting shoes for people who have fallen victim to natural disasters such as the tsunami in Japan or the earthquake in Haiti.

see page A19… Mural art

Artist puts more than just paint on a wall by Troy Landreville tlandreville@langleyadvance.com Vince Ruis transformed a room inside a friend’s home in Maple Ridge into an expansive work of art. “It was supposed to have had a simple film reel rolling down the steps into the theatre room, but I couldn’t help myself so I kicked it up a notch and painted the Keith Richards Pirates of the Caribbean,” Ruis elaborated. An industrial mechanic, Ruis has, he said, “a pretty cool hobby.” He airbrushes theme rooms. Ruis, a Langley resident, turned part of the room into a tribute to horror flicks, featuring the ghoul from the original

Creepshow film, Pinhead from the Hellraiser series, Chucky from Child’s Play. and the hockey mask belonging to Jason Voorhees from the Friday the 13th films. “I did it almost for free for a friend of mine, as a Christmas gift,” Ruis said. “I spent seven weekends in this place. I got a website out of it and business cards that I had to pay for, but the flip side is, that’s where I met my wife to be.” Owning a home in the Walnut Grove area gives Ruis a thrill, because it gives him a blank canvas: walls. He has a 1950s mural in his basement. The 10’ by 24’ wall of art, which took Ruis roughly 150 hours to complete, is a homage to iconic cultural figures James Dean, Marilyn Monroe, Humphrey Bogart, and

Elvis Presley. He and wife Monika bought the house a while ago and, for as long as he could remember, Ruis always wanted to paint on his walls. While growing up in Mackenzie, Ruis had a falling out with his art teacher while attending Grade 10 at the local secondary school. The artistic differences he and his teacher had were part of the reason Ruis’s artistic career had a slow start. “So even when I graduated, there was 80 people in my grad class, and I didn’t apply for any art scholarships,” he said. “It turned out to be good because, just the way things worked out.” Airbrushing became his medium of choice when, while moonlighting at a beer and wine store, he met renowned airbrush artist Paul Archer. “I apprenticed under him for three or four years and that’s how I learned how to airbrush,” Ruis said.

Ruis, whose passion is photo-realism, said anyone can airbrush, but it takes a lot of patience. “There’s a lot of variables between air pressure, chunks in your paint… it’s like anything, you have to tell yourself you can do it and you can do it,” he said. Ruis is offering his artistic services to others, and is looking to put his artistic stamp on kids’ rooms, theatre rooms, and beyond. Visit his website at www.vinceruis.com.

Led Zeppelin tribute band endorsed by Jimmy Page himself will be returning to Cascades Casino in Langley next week. Led Zepagain vows to bring a re-creation of Page’s soaring guitar leads, Jones’ brilliant keyboard passages, Bonham’s trademark pounding rhythms and of course, Plant’s stratospheric vocals. Zepagain’s performance of immortal classics Stairway to Heaven, Immigrant Song, Whole Lotta Love, Rock ‘n’ Roll, and Black Dog will show Page is right when he said this L.A.-based tribute band is “as close as you’ll ever get to the real deal.” An Irishman born and bred, lead singer David “Swan” Montgomery delivers an uncanny portrayal of Robert Plant. In fact, Swan was recently pulled on stage by Roger Daltry for a duet rendition of Help From My Friends. Daltry even commented on how much Swan looked like Plant. Inspired by the great rock guitarists, Steve Zukowsky has lent his talents to no less than eight of L.A.’s top tribute bands. Then, in 1977, Zukowsky saw Led Zeppelin in concert. The rest, as they say, is history. In 2001, he jumped at the chance to join Swan in Led Zepagain, and he has been winning over even the most die-hard Led Zeppelin fans with his spot-on portrayal of Jimmy Page. Having studied drums and percussion with Carmine Appice, Joe Porcaro, and at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Jim Kersey brings his feel for John “Bonzo” Bonham to Led Zepagain. “This amazing drummer leaves audiences shouting for more after every performance of Zeppelin’s epic drum solo, Moby Dick!” said show promoter Rob Warwick, of Rock.It Boy Entertainment. And Jim Wootten, nephew of the legendary guitarist Les Paul, rounds the group out. He fills the demanding role of John Paul Jones by masterfully covering bass, keyboards, mandolin, acoustic six- and 12-string guitars, and backing vocals. A Led Zepagain show features all of the Zeppelin highlights, from the high energy electric classics, to the beautiful acoustic works; from the soaring leads on the double-neck guitar, to the brilliant keyboard passages, and from the high Robert Plant screams, to the trademark pounding rhythms, Warwick said. And they must be doing something right, if Page has been quoted as saying: “It’s amazing how much you sound like us. You must

Some of Langley’s avid gardeners are set to compete.

pring may have seemed slow in coming, but the season was just about perfect for Langley gardeners and flower enthusiasts. All over town, rhododendrons and daffodils, tulips and hyacinths are bringing colour to the community. And those who bring out the best in the buds are gathering this Saturday to show off their finest blooms. The Langley Garden Club Show will be held on Saturday, April 28 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., in the downstairs of Sharon United Church Hall at 21562 Old Yale Road. Club president Pam Erikson is looking forward to a big show this year, with contestants for the juried flower shows as well as exhibitors and the annual plant sale. “It’s a lot of work by a few volunteers, and they

put their all into it,” she said of the organizing that must be done for one of the first shows of the year. In the past, the flower show has had everything from heat to snow on the day of the event, but as of mid-week, the weather forecast was looking positive. That would mean people could enjoy the outdoor exhibits in the parking lot,

including exhibitors like Tuscan Farm Gardens, BC Greenhouse Builders, and Erikson’s own Daylily Gardens. Erickson said that the garden club show always feels like the real start of spring. It’s a chance to see the blooms that are already out, as well as photos of some vibrant flowers. A photo competition has joined the

flower competition, with categories for both landscape and single bloom. In addition to the competitive flower shows and photo contest, there will be a children’s competition, with the medals handed out by Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese at 2 p.m. For those not competing, it’s a good chance to pick up both supplies, and some of the less common plants.

For someone who wants to have a shrub or flower in their yard that isn’t all that common, it’s a good place to look, said Erikson. She also hopes that this year the show can bring in some new people to the club. It’s more than 70 years old, but to keep it going for another few decades, it always needs new members, she said. She knows there are new members out there. “We are a gardening community,” Erikson said.

Unlike many summer bulbs, the Pineapple Lily flowers for many weeks and still looks good when the flowers are replaced by fat, green seeds. Purple-leaved forms are being developed as well as hybrids like ‘Leia’ which has very large, pink flowers. The ‘Calla Lily’ is really an arum with Latin name Zantedeschia. It loves moisture and warm, sheltered places. The old, almost-hardy favourite still planted outside in gardens is the white ‘Crowborough,’ which reliably overwinters under mulch. The pink, purple, red, or yellow Calla Lilies sold widely in spring are hybrids with tender varieties, and need winters indoors. They thrive in warm places with lots of moisture, such as container ponds or bog gardens. The ‘Foxtail Lily’ (Latin Eremurus) is a hardy, semi-desert plant that grows up to 10’ tall, topped with long spike of densely clustered shallow cups with long stamens. Basic flowers are white, yellow, and pink, but hybrids can be orange, red, deep pink, or coppery.

Lily relatives also include ‘African Lilies,’ often sold under their Latin name, Agapanthus. Tender varieties throw up strong, tall stems topped by spectacular balls of blue, violet, or white tubular flowers. They are perfect for well-drained patio containers in full sun, but must spend winter indoors. A few dwarf, deciduous agapanthus varieties survive winter outdoors under mulch, even in the chilly Fraser Valley. Plants may be found in specialist nurseries, but the are easy to grow from seed. Daylilies are botanically called Hemerocallis. They’re popular because they grow in most garden soils and produce flowers over several weeks (though each flower lasts only one day). The most flowers are produced by feeding them lavishly and growing them in sun. Breeders have got flower shapes from doubles, spidery petals, ruffled petals, to flat blooms. Colours include bicoloureds, picotees, and very deep reds and purples. Daylilies have tough, deep roots that are great for stabilizing slopes. They’re best divided every three years.

any people have never had fresh pasta. All they know is pasta that comes dry in a box or bag. Not only is the texture of cooked fresh pasta superior, making it can be quite liberating. Making a well in the measured flour and mixing the dough directly on the countertop is an experience everyone must try… and if you have children or grandchildren, get them involved. It requires more effort than opening a box, but the results are amazing. Take a Sunday afternoon, put on some music by Pavarotti, and make a month’s supply. It can be frozen quite nicely, if care is taken to not compress the fragile pasta dough back into a solid mass. For freezing I use a large plastic container and put “nests” of freshly cut/floured pasta side-by-side, not stacked, in the container. Seal tightly and try to use it up within three to six months. Each nest can be removed easily, and directly put into salted boiling water direct from frozen, without having to thaw or cook more than you need. Pasta dough can be rolled and cut by hand, but perfection will come from buying a good quality hand-crank pasta machine. Beware: you get what you

pay for. You should be willing to spend from $80 to $120 or more. I followed that advice in 1989 and still have the same pasta machine today.

Fresh Pasta

Ingredients: 2¾ cups all-purpose flour 3 large eggs ¼ cup + 1 tbsp + 1 tsp water 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil Salt 1. Mound the flour on a countertop and make a well in the centre large enough for the rest of the ingredients. 2. Add eggs, water, oil and a pinch of salt to the well. Scramble the eggs with a fork and slowly incorporate the flour. Keep mixing with a fork while incorporating more flour until you cannot mix with a fork any longer. Mix by hand for a couple of minutes until it comes together in one mass. You may need to add a bit more water if it is too dry, or more flour if too wet. It should be firm and together, but not sticky. 3. Knead by hand for about 8-10 minutes until smooth. Shape into a ball, cover with plastic wrap, and let sit at room temperature for 30-45 minutes (or up to three hours in the refrigerator). 4. Cut dough into four equal pieces and work with one piece at a time while keeping the others covered.

Set your pasta machine to the widest setting. Hand shape the piece of dough into an approximate rectangle and feed it through the machine. Fold it over and pass it through again. Do this a couple of times to help make it as rectangular as possible. 5. Continue to run it through the machine while narrowing the rollers on the pasta machine each time. Stop when the pasta has reached the desired thickness, dust liberally with flour, and cut into the desired shape(s). Dust one more time with flour and set aside, covered with plastic wrap, until all the pasta dough is rolled and cut. 6. Bring salted water to a boil and then add the fresh pasta, stirring immediately, and cook until done – from 2 to 6 minutes, depending on the thickness you have chosen. Toss with your favourite sauce and enjoy! Makes about one and a half pounds of fresh pasta.

Women’s volleyball

Spartan set to play for Canada at qualifier Starting on Sunday, Trinity Western setter Kelci French will be wearing Canada’s red and white in Tijuana, Mexico.

Trinity Western University setter Kelci French will be playing volleyball for Canada in Mexico next week. French was named to Canada’s 12-player roster for the NORCECA Olympic qualification tournament, to be held in Tijuana April 29 to May 5. On Monday, Volleyball Canada announced the roster that will compete for a spot in the 2012 Summer Games in London. French was one of two setters who will represent the red and white. Canada, ranked No. 22 in the world, must win the tournament to guarantee itself a spot in the Olympics. The last time the Canadians competed at the Olympic Games was 1996 in Atlanta, where they tied for ninth. “Representing Canada in an attempt to qualify for the Olympics is something that I’ve been dreaming about since I was a little girl,” French said. “This is such an amazing opportunity and I am just so grateful and excited to be a part of it. Winning this tournament won’t be easy for anyone but I definitely think it is something we are capable of doing. No games will be easy but we’ll just have to come out strong, trust our preparation, and play our best.” French, who will be going into her second year with the Spartans this fall but third year of CIS eligibility – having played with Alberta in 2008/09 when she captured CIS Rookie of the Year honours – is quite familiar with the national program. She trained at the full-time centre in Winnipeg in the two years prior to coming to Trinity Western. In her first year with the Spartans, French, who was large-

She also registered the second most digs on the team with 2.53 per set and the second most aces, with 27. French also had 1.92 assists and 1.54 kills per set.

“Going back to setting full time feels a little bit like coming home,” French said. “It really is where my heart lies. I love being able to be a hitter and, in a perfect world, I always think it’s fun to do both, but coming back to setting has me really excited about the upcoming season and I’m looking forward to having the whole summer to improve and just play a lot of volleyball.”

Also named to Team Canada’s 12-player roster were leftside hitters Tammy Mahon (Holland, Man.), Tonya Mokelki (Weyburn, Sask.), Liz Cordonier (Vancouver), and Kyla Richey (Vancouver); middle blockers Jennifer Hinze (Vancouver), Marisa Field (Vancouver), and Tasha Holness (Calgary); right-side hitters Sarah Pavan (Kitchener, Ont.) and Brittney Page (Vernon); setter Jaclyn Ellis (Mississauga, Ont.); and libero Julie Young (Red Deer, Alta.). Canada is in a round-robin pool with the Dominican Republic (ranked No. 9), Puerto Rico (No. 19) and Honduras (No. 69). If Canada is successful in those matches, it would then cross over to the second round to face one of Cuba (No. 10), Mexico (No. 27), Costa Rica (No. 28), or Trinidad & Tobago (No. 34) in the quarter-final.

Nicole Franks has the world’s quickest trigger finger, once again. by Den Robinson

Contributor

Nicole Franks, Aldergrove’s gal gunslinger, has captured the world all-around top gun women’s title for 2011, making this the 10th time in the last 11 years she has achieved this feat. Awards were handed out by World Fast Draw Association (WFDA) chairman Dave Livingston, of Oklahoma, at the first world championship shoot of 2012 in Frontier City, Okla. Not stopping there, Franks went on to win this contests’ women’s title, as well. Her mom Peggy came in second place among women in the contest, and though it is common for mothers and daughters to be close, it’s likely that Nicole is thinking that her mom is getting too close for comfort. There was a lot of real lightning to go along with the sharpshooters’ lightning draws, as well. continued on page A32…

Pro cyclist ready to roll in Italy Christian Meier, who uses the rural roads of Langley as his training grounds, is set to take part in the Giro d’Italia, a 3,476 kilometre stage race.

A Langleyite is about to to compete in one of the world’s top cycling events. Prospera Valley GranFondo pro ride ambassador Christian Meier, from Langley, is training for the Giro D’Italia. As part of the Australian World Tour

Team GreenEDGE, Meier will race in the century old, international cycling classic, Giro d’Italia, a 3,476 kilometre stage race that takes place in Italy from May 5-27. The Giro is one of the three grand tours of cycling. The other two are the Tour de France and the Vuelta a España. Following the Giro D’Italia, the scenic roadways of the Fraser Valley will host 1,500 road cyclists with all levels of ability during the inaugural Prospera Valley GranFondo on July 22. Meier is very familiar with the challenging terrain of the 160-kilometre route.

“I’ve trained on these roads in the Fraser Valley for years and this route has it all,” says Meier. Now riding for GreenEDGE, Meier spent 2011 with UnitedHealthcare and has previously ridden for GarminTransitions at the ProTour level. This season the 26-year-old returns to the sport’s highest level. “I’m very excited about the prospect of returning to the World Tour and being part of such an ambitious project,” he said. “I’ll be able to learn plenty from these guys and continue to develop as a rider.”

Local sharpshooters shine in ‘Soak-lahoma’ …continued from page A29

All of the fast draw contestants had to put up with more than 100 “T-severe” tornadoes during the weekend. Maybe it was the sun’s perseverance that protected the pistoleros, although others in surrounding Oklahoma City and below were not so lucky. In the daytime, the sun would be out and the oldwest buildings of Frontier City seemed to keep the wind to a minimum. In the end, though, the competitors renamed the state “Soak-lahoma” and the Thunderbird Fast Draw club members from Langley should have felt right at home, thanks to all the thunder that kept them awake at night. If a gun was fired at the same time, no one would have heard it. And “torrential” was the only way word to describe such rain. Meanwhile, Livingston handed out the annual buckle awards for the allaround top guns of 2011. The top 15 men and top eight women are rated at the end of each year’s competition. Top gun women’s division included Nicole Franks in first place, Peggy Franks in third, and Karen Robinson moved up to fifth place. In the men’s all-around top gun division, Den Robinson dropped to

seventh place, while Bob Franks took 11th place and Ioan “Nick The Quick” Nica placed 13th overall. The fast draw circuit started again for this year with this Frontier City shootout. Local shooters at the Frontier City Championships in the women’s division were: Nicole Franks, first overall; Peggy Franks, second; and Karen Robinson, fifth. In the men’s division, Den Robinson moved up to sixth overall. All competitors in the sport of fast draw must wear western attire and use only single action revolvers which are fired when drawn from old-style buscadero holsters. There are many different events. Shooters at Frontier City used blank ammunition only. The Thunderbirds host the Canadian Fast Draw Championships, July 2021, during Aldergrove Fair Days at Aldergrove Athletic Park. More information an Aldergrove Fair Days can be found at: www.aldergrovefairdays.com. More on the Langley Rod and Gun Club is online at: www.lrgc.com.

PRESTON, Iris (Wolfe)

November 19, 1926 - April 21, 2012

Iris Preston passed away peacefully April 21, 2012. Iris was born on November 19, 1926 in Edmonton to Frank and Margaret Wolfe. She attended Oliver and Victoria High Schools in Edmonton, then took a Home Economics degree at U.B.C., and was a member of Alpha Gamma Delta Sorority there. Following graduation, she worked as a dietitian at the University Hospital in Edmonton, the Sick Kids Hospital in Toronto, and was “Miss B. Wright” for the Woodward’s Stores. She met and married the love of her life, George Preston , in 1957. They then lived in Michigan and Boston for a time, where George worked for Manufacturers Life. Iris sometimes operated cooking schools for kids out of their home. While in Boston they welcomed children Richard, Diane and Robin into their home. They then moved back to B.C. and decided on Langley as their home, establishing the Preston Chev-Olds dealership in Langley. Iris was the mayor’s wife for several years and opened their home often to friends and family. They travelled extensively, helping out with seniors’ tours. Iris loved music. She loved to sing and play the piano. She often toured with the Vancouver Bach Choir. She was also a member of the Maysfield Singers, as well as the leader of a childrens choir called “The Gloworms”. She was a life member of the Langley Music School. She led a youth handbell group for many years, and then was the leader of the Barclay Bells, out of the Langley Seniors’ Centre. Iris was a great supporter of the Langley Community. She volunteered with the YMYWCA in Langley. She was active in the Daughters of The Nile as well as the K-Ettes and was also Senior Citizen of the Year. Iris was a Founding member of Langley Home Support. Iris is survived by children Diane Preston and Robin Ladouceur, daughter-in-law Jackie Preston (Kevin Mallar), grandchildren Marshal Geyer, Brooke-Anne Preston, Stephanie and Tyler Ladouceur and Austin Mallar, and sister Lois Field as well as numerous nieces and nephews and friends. She was predeceased by her husband George, son Richard, brothers Merrill and Evan Wolfe, and parents Margaret and Frank Wolfe. She is greatly indebted to her wonderful caregivers Shannon, Val, and Elaine, who gave her loving care in her home for 3 years. Memorial Service will be held at Christian Life Assembly at 21277 56th Avenue, Langley B.C. on Thursday May 3, 2012 at 11:00 a.m. Reverend Karen Verveda officiating. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to The United Churches of Langley or the Langley Music School.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Your popularity, optimism and luck rise nicely through May. There remains a silent, solitary or private attraction or situation to mull over – it could be an old friend, a lover whom you don’t want revealed to everyone, or simply a nice streak of “home sweet home.” This private zone needs careful handling through August – don’t yield to temptation, nor commit yourself irrevocably. Career or prestige discussions continue well. Shop Sunday a.m., not Monday. Travel, talk Tuesday/Wednesday. Be home, or hold a garden party, Thursday/Friday. This night triggers sweet attraction. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your energy and charisma soar briefly Sunday/Monday. Send a letter, missive, email Sunday a.m. to someone you love (even a favorite nephew, niece). Chase money, buy/sell Tuesday (best) and Wednesday. Errands, trips, talk and paperwork fill Thursday/Friday (careful Thursday morn). Retreat to a comfy chair, kitchen or garden, Friday night, Saturday. A good, easy week, with perhaps one ethical or cultural dilemma at its end. But all week, be ambitious, propose to higher-ups, display your talents, especially Tuesday. Through mid-2013, your popularity will rise – better after August. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Mysteries, detective work, health diagnosis, sex, intimacy, investments, debt, lifestyle decisions – these weigh on you, as the need to act, to step boldly, is undeniable. This pressure lasts to early July. This week and the next two, you’re wise enough, and see the big picture enough, to make a good decision: where to live, to whom to be loyal, what major change to make in your life, etc. Read, listen to information: it contains valuable clues. Rest, remain in the background Sunday/Monday. Your energy, charisma shoot upward midweek – start something! Money, Thursday/Friday.

Saturday, MAY 26th @ 9AM 65A Ave. & 176 St. Surrey BC

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Chase money. Buy, sell, seek a pay raise or overtime and cultivate new clients. You might feel possessive about your loved one. Communications and travel, paperwork, errands and casual friendships flow well now to August – but if you experience a noticeable delay in any of these, walk away. Travel, Internet, coffee talks, etc. can spark an attraction that might grow into a partnership. But remain skeptical about people you meet in these ways until September. Sunday/Monday are romantic. Tackle chores midweek. Relationships – and intimacy – face you Thursday-Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Your energy, charisma, courage, clout and effectiveness soar for the next three weeks, Taurus – start important ventures, see and be seen, ask favours, demonstrate your talents. Your earnings (your whole money picture) look great to August – so do your sensual involvements. But a trap might also exist in both areas until September: DON’T try to get something for nothing, don’t yield to temptations, and if you meet inexplicable delays (even small ones) get out, fast. Spend Sunday at home. Romance, creativity and “happy risk” draw you Monday eve to Wednesday eve. Say yes! Gemini May 21-June 20: Continue to rest; avoid the crowd. Your energy is low, though your charisma is unusually potent. You could attract someone who is too energetic, or demanding/needy for you – this applies right into Aug, 30, so be patient, love without bias, and know the cosmos will pick the right time. (If a love affair is dumped in your lap before September, at least give it a good try. But if you have to chase it, let that tiny spark of resentment guide you to walk away.) Avoid arguments at home. Sunday’s busy, happy. Settle into home or rest midweek. Thursday/ Friday spark romantic notions.

April 29 - May 5, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Like Virgo, you face mysteries, detective work, health diagnoses, intimacy, financial and lifestyle decisions. These zones are lucky, especially up to May 13, so dive in rather than play for safety. (But remain honest, ethical.) Sunday/ Monday feature wish fulfillment, social joys. Lie low, rest midweek. You can make a great investment Tuesday. Your energy and charisma rise Thursday/ Friday: act to establish your position in power play, intimate or financial situations. Chase money, buy/sell Friday night, Saturday. Legal or international waters hold joys and traps – be long-sighted! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Relationships face you, carrying huge bags of potential: lucky money opportunities, beneficial relocation, negotiations, public dealings – especially as we approach May 13. You’ll need diplomacy, eagerness and desire to join. Where relationships veer into commitment, funding, intimacy – there you have good luck mingled with difficult karma, so step carefully. (Yes, it sounds contradictory.) Be ambitious Sunday (best) and Monday. Midweek, wishes come true, your popularity rises. But retreat, rest and contemplate Thursday/ Friday. Your energy, charisma surge Friday night, Saturday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Work piles up – plunge into it. Protect your health, eat and dress sensibly. Relationships continue to sparkle – now to August, people treat you with grace and affection. If you want to approach someone but are afraid, approach now; even if you’re rejected, you’ll walk away smiling. A wise, gentle mood flows over you Sunday/Monday. Career, prestige and relations with authority arise midweek. Bosses are temperamental now to July, so be diplomatic, grin and bear it. You’ll be more creative in your career. Friends and sunshine bless you Thursday/Friday. Retreat Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Romance, creative surges, joys from children, beauty, pleasure, vacation, self-expression, speculation and rewarding risks – these fill your days. They might build to a lucky situation or love around mid-May, but it will have a big responsibility attached. Until July, stray idealistic or “principled” thoughts might urge you to end a romance – I wouldn’t. Much talk at home might prefigure a summer struggle: talk about the pressures and “accidents” you fear might loom. Mysteries arise Sunday. Sweet wisdom midweek. Ambition Thursday/ Friday. Friday night begins an exciting weekend. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The weeks ahead emphasize home, children, security, retirement, foundations, nature and nutrition. These build to a superb opportunity (peaking about May 13) – for example, you could buy real estate (and be forever glad you did) or start a family healing, create a child, etc.You’ll feel sluggish, so take frequent naps. Your investigative talents rise to the surface, now to July – so might your sexual desires, so be good, moral, especially Tuesday/ Wednesday. Sunday/Monday highlight relationships (maybe love, Sunday morn, noon). Seek wisdom, learning, travel afar, Thursday/Friday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The main accent lies on travel, communications, errands, details, paperwork, and casual friends. These swell large, might provide you with a pathway to career or business success. (E.g., an idea or email you send the boss might wake him/her to your talents. Or you meet a VIP while running your errands.) Partners and others abandon their winter/spring indecision, and leap up to respond to you (especially midweek) – whether favourably or not, depends. Your home life is sweet, affectionate, until August.Tackle chores Sunday/Monday. Mysteries, finances, sexy urges arise late week. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-727-3673

young… then said… “Go for it, and enjoy all the perks

Acts of Kindness

Samaritans unite to help local family You can help make a difference by offering your time, money, building materials – or all of the above – for a May 10-21 home repair.

An Aldergrove family affected by a tragedy is about to receive some helping hands from kind-hearted community members next month. Tragedy struck the Sperger family on Oct. 31, 2007, when mom Teresa’s seven-year-old son Christopher lost his battle with cancer. During this trying time, Teresa put her career and the rest of her life on hold so she and her family could spend every moment they could with Christopher. Repairing the 2,200 sq. foot, two-storey Aldergrove house she and her family has called home for the past 13 years came third, oftentimes fourth on Teresa’s priority list. Because of this, the kitchen needs a complete reno, the roof just started leaking, with water coming down the walls of the kitchen, the driveway is broken up, and the main bathroom includes an outdated-looking, lilac-coloured toilet and bathtub. Led by Pastor Mike Dauncey of Aldergrove Adventist Church’s Acts of Kindness (AOK) Service Team, an army of volunteers will be repairing as well as adding new features to the Sperger home from May 10-21. “This family has suffered unimaginable loss and we want to send them the message that we care and want to help,” said Dauncey, coordinator of the AOK Extreme Home Repair program. The big reveal is Monday, May 21 at 5 p.m. If you would like to help by volunteering your time, send an e-mail to: extremehomevolunteer@gmail. com. Or if you would like to make a donation of money, new building materials, or new household items, call Dauncey at 778-549-3896.
