Judging from the way she raced through her Langley home with older sister Maya in hot pursuit, there’s no slowing down threeyear-old Zoe Dornan. Even after Zoe lost her left eye to cancer. At five months old, Zoe was diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma, cancerous tumours of the retina, in both her eyes. At the time of Zoe’s diagnosis, her left retina was 80 per cent tumorous and there were multiple tumours in her right eye, her mom Kelly explained. “When she was first diagnosed, there were risks of the tumours getting out of the eye and affecting other areas,” her dad Sean noted. The family can thank eightyear-old Maya and her amateur photography skills for the early diagnosis. Using a point-and-shoot camera she received for Christmas that year, the then five-year-old snapped several pictures of her infant sister. “She had a Valentine’s Day party with all of her friends over, and they were all taking pictures of the baby sister,” Sean said. While Sean and Maya perused through the pictures on the computer a few days later, dad noticed something odd. “A lot of the pictures, in one eye, instead of red eye, it was white,” Sean said. Sean, who does service and clinical training for doctors who do laser eye surgery, knew right away something was wrong. “I didn’t know specifically what it was,” Sean said. “There are a few things that it could have been, this being the worst. I wanted to take her in and have her seen immediately by an ophthalmologist.” Sean could tell by the expression on the ophthalmologist’s face that the diagnosis wasn’t good. “Sean said his face dropped,” Kelly related. The next morning, the family

“They say that, once she reached the age she is now, she’s not likely to develop any new tumours,” Sean said. “It’s strictly a young child’s cancer.

So it’s very rare.” Her parents hope Zoe’s future is bright. “She can see very well out of her one eye,” Sean said. “Doctors have always told us she can drive a car, she can play sports, she can do anything with one eye,” Kelly said. “So, hopefully, it won’t slow her down too much,” Sean said.

Emergency response

Separate blazes keep crews moving Fires Monday and Tuesday in Langley Township were doused with no injuries. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Langley Township firefighters dealt with a pair of fires early in the week, one of which destroyed a garage. The first fire broke out around 6:25 p.m. Monday in the 10000 block of Allard Crescent near Fort Langley, said assistant fire chief Bruce Ferguson. When fire crews arrived, they found a workshop and garage in flames. The building was almost completely consumed, but no one was injured. The cause of the fire is still under investigation, but it does not appear to be arson, Ferguson said. On Tuesday night, crews were called out to

a fire caused by spontaneous combustion. The residents of a home in the 500 block of 232nd Street had been working with linseed oil earlier in the day.

Just after 11 p.m., a rag soaked in the oil, and left on a woodpile outside the house, spontaneously burst into flames. The fire began creeping up from the woodpile,

up the side of the home and into the wooden soffits under the eaves, Ferguson said. The homeowners were able to douse the fire before the firefighters

even arrived. They used a thermal imager to search for hot spots and helped vent smoke from the house. No one was injured in the incident.

Township locks horns with Metro Vancouver

A legal battle is brewing between the regional district and the Township over TWU expansion. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Metro Vancouver and Langley Township are locked into a legal wrangle over who gets to say what development is appropriate. Earlier this year, the Township approved a “university district” around the existing Trinity Western University campus, including some land to the northwest of Glover Road opposite the school’s current site. The project stirred some controversy, with members of the public arguing that it was an agricultural and environmentally sensitive area that should not be developed.

On May 16, Metro Vancouver Mayor Jack Froese said the revealed that it was filing a council has voted to rescind “quashing motion” for the comthe final reading of the bylaws munity plan amendments and approving the university district. rezonings.

Agricultural Land Reserve. The

Agricultural Land Commission has already given tentative approval for the removal of the land for the project. That project was not part of Metro Vancouver’s legal filing, because Township council has not yet voted on fourth and final reading for that project. Froese indicated it was likely part of the same issue. The legal dispute throws new light on the recent squabble between Township council and Metro Vancouver. On Monday, the council held a special meeting to discuss whether they should remain in Metro Vancouver at all. Councillor Kim Richter has recently suggested leaving and forming a new district with communities such as Surrey, Delta, and Abbotsford. Coun. Charlie Fox noted that he was concerned about Metro Vancouver exerting too much control over things like regional planning and land use.

Cell tower gets negative reception

Township council said no to a controversial cell tower, but it will not have the final word. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Residents around the Tall Timbers area were relieved Monday as Langley Township council voted eight to one to oppose a planned cellphone tower in their neighbourhood. However, Councillor Charlie Fox warned that whatever council has decided, it is Industry Canada that has the final right of approval for cell towers. “We have probably the least say of any group,” Fox said. He pointed to a tower that was build near 40th Avenue not long ago, which was opposed by the Township but

FLY-IN & FISH

approved by the federal government. The tower this time is proposed for 240th Street just north of 56th Avenue. Neighbours have organized petitions to oppose the plan, and have sent copies to Langley MP Mark Warawa, among others. Cascadia Tower is propsing the project, which would be the first tower in Western Canada to be disguised as a tree, complete with fibreglass branches and a fake bark coating on the “trunk.” It didn’t soothe neighbours, who were worried about the size of the tower and its potential impacts. Once it became clear that council was planning to vote against the project, many of those who had turned out to speak against it simply thanked the council, or asked to make certain that their concerns are heard in Ottawa.

Coun. Grant Ward did vote in favour of the project. He pointed out that many people have only cellphones now, and said that reception is a safety issue for people contacting 911. “I believe that a cellphone tower in your area is very appropriate,” Ward said. Fox also said there have been issues with 911 service in Langley, and the reality is that cellphone towers will stay and grow. Councillors voting against the plan suggested that in the future, towers should be farther away from subdivisions, and they have expressed a preference for towers that co-locate several cellphone company antennas together. That reduces the number of towers that need to be built in an area. This proposed tower is to have only one tenant, the new Wind Mobile firm.

Holly Marks of the Langley RCMP. The incident caused the closure of part of the Bypass around Glover Road for some time. The overpass was built in the 1990s to connect the main portion of the campus to the gardens and facilities used by the horticulture department on the east side of the road.

Pricey proposition pinches no pennies Nineteen million dollars for a new school… it kind of takes your breath away, doesn’t it? We get that the days of neighbours banding together to build their children a oneroom school for a few hundred dollars, with mostly donated materials and on a borrowed corner of a local farmer’s field, are long gone. Even barn-raisings are pretty much a thing of the past, and schools require far more engineering, technological, material, social, and educational understanding to ensure a comfortable and safe learning environment for our children (as opposed to housing a few cows and chickens and a pig or two). But $19 million for an elementary school in Willoughby [New school taking ‘LEED’ role, May 15, Langley Advance] seems a pricey proposition in a time when governments at all levels profess a need to pinch pennies to offer whatever relief possible to a recessionburdened public. To think that the South East Yorkson property on which the newly announced school will sit will eat up nearly $7 million of that price tag leaves us wondering at what happened to those Good Samaritans of the “old days” who used to consider it a privilege to allow the community to use of a portion of their land to accommodate the children – to accommodate the future. It also leaves us wondering about some of the schools in other parts of Langley that are sitting empty or nearly empty because the very concept of using buses to transport children is repugnant to today’s parents, at least those living in the pampered neighbourhoods of the Lower Mainland. Our kids deserve the best education possible. They deserve effective accommodations and excellent teachers. But we’re not sure that every kid in every neighbourhood needs his or her own $19-million school. – B.G.

RV parking

Check rules before you buy

Dear Editor, While I appreciate Mr. Balogh’s desire to change the bylaws regarding parking RVs/ trailers in a driveway [RV owners unite against enforcers, May 1 Letters, Langley Advance], I do not want the bylaw changed. I am a trailer owner, and specifically purchased a property which would allow me to park my unit beside my home. This keeps our neighbourhood looking neat and tidy, and is in keeping with current regulations. It has nothing to do with whether the RV

is kept clean and/or in running condition. I purchased a home in a single-family zone with homes that generally could not be converted to include suites, because this is the type of neighbourhood I wanted to live in. Too many don’t bother to know the rules when they purchase a home, and then want to change them to suit their own lifestyle. Valerie Cluff, Langley [Note: A fuller version of this letter and others on similar topics are online at www. langleyadvance.com.]

Animal welfare

Even friendly dogs terrify wildlife

Dear Editor, Imagine you were forced to move to a new community with no fences and no doors. Twenty to 30 times a day, dire-bears the size of F150 pickup trucks wandered into your neighbourhood, intentions unknown. On occasion, one will get aggressive and chase you or your kids. On a weekly basis, one or more of your neighbours gets torn to shreds by one of these ter-

rifying animals. Would this feel like a good place to live? Would you let your kids play at the park? How would you feel walking for groceries, knowing that, any minute, a creature from your nightmares might suddenly appear to chase and possibly kill you? How much would you dread arriving home to find your babies slaughtered in their beds? Well your “friendly”

Environment

Some opinions not worthy

Dear Editor, The Langley Advance performs a great disservice to its readers by publishing opinions of people who are obviously providing misleading and exaggerated information. Roland Seguin [Environmentalists cost big money, May 10 Letters, Langley Advance] is the most recent example. He states gossip as fact and uses childish name-calling, like “eco-bully,” His assertion that our governments spend billions to counter false propaganda is nonsense. Doesn’t anyone read these letters before you publish them? All we have is one environment and protecting it is the most important thing humans can do. Sure we could send all the oil out of the country, but in actuality, what the pipelines do is drain money and jobs out of Canada and make a few greedy people super-rich. They will make us reliant on imported oil instead, and give jobs to China and the U.S., and the profits that go with them. Or we could keep the oil here, and make Canada self-sufficient for the future, as well as add jobs and infrastructure Michael Mahoney, Surrey

dog is the dire-bear of the GVRD nature preserve. It is big enough that it can kill birds and small mammals, and when you let it chase a duck, it is acting on instinct and will kill if it can. That duck has fledglings that cannot fly and are incredibly vulnerable. The best result is traumatized animals; the worst is a dead brood. So what you see as a pleasant walk at Derby Reach Park with your offleash dog [Walkers give leashes short shrift, May 15 Going Off Leash, Langley Advance], a biologist sees as a dire threat to one of the handful of natural, protected spaces in the Lower Mainland. Metro Vancouver needs to step up its information and enforcement campaign at Derby Reach. More signs like the “fish live here” signs that we see near creeks would really help. I’m sure that most owners, if they knew how sensitive the ecosystem is (especially at this time of year), would respect the park, but many I have talked to have no clue, because no one has bothered to inform them. Blair King, Langley

Provincial tax

PST delayed by snake oil sellers

Dear Editor, Kevin Falcon has finally announced plans for return to the PST with all the old exemptions, as per the voters’ demands. But after 19 months of HST at $2 billion per year,

new software will mean 100 fewer clerical people needed to run the PST – a savings of $9 million per year. Falcon’s business professors might be proud of him, but the B.C. public can see through his smokescreen.

Transportation

Bike lane police collect tolls

Dear Editor, TransLink has $500,000 for a bike lane in Vancouver, but no money for transit services South of the Fraser. Once again, taxpayers South of the Fraser subsidize an improved “transportation system” (i.e. bike lane) in Vancouver. With infrastructure such as Golden Ears Bridge and Port Mann Bridge being tolled because they are “new,” would it not be appropriate to toll the “new” bike lanes? Then (excuse my sarcasm) they could hire Bike Lane Police who would earn huge overtime salaries if they get called in as the result of poor scheduling. D. Atkinson, Langley

Our mistake on the HST referendum was to assume, when we voted to return to the status quo ante, it would be right away. What fools we were to trust these sellers of snake oil! All systems were in place, and it should have taken 90 days, maximum, to go back to what B.C. had before. PST improvements could have been made at that same time. Well, the BC Liberals can now see from the opinion polls what happens when they keep trying to fool us over and over. They will get their pink slips next spring. Herb Spencer, Aldergrove

Greg Ewasiuk and Sam Omichinski at the Holy Falafel restaurant in Gloucester Estates. Below, Omichinski prepares one of the many wrap-style dishes on the menu.

Falafel are vegetarian patties of chick peas and vegetables, which can be wrapped up in pitas. Shawarma are the giant spits of meat – beef, chicken, or lamb – that provide the filling for more hand-held meals. They’re a common fast food throughout the Middle East and eastern Mediterranean, and a similar style of food goes by the name donair or gyro.

With healthy servings of meat on the menu, there are other options. “The other half of our menu is vegan,” said Ewasiuk. That’s a market that isn’t served by too many burger joints at present. While it’s a fast food outlet, Ewasiuk said he doesn’t want Holy Falafel to be unhealthy or bland by any means. His restaurant is styled “arthouse contemporary” he said, and the goal in the kitchen is to make everything as fresh as possible. “Nothing here is pre-packaged, nothing here is pre-cut,” he said. The falafels are made fresh, and fried up four to five times a day, especially just before the lunch rush, which actually starts around 11 a.m. and lasts for a couple of hours. Lebanese food is complex, with many flavours, and Ewasiuk compared it to wine. He’s also confident that the Middle Eastern menu has a future in the Lower Mainland. So far, he believes he’s the only restauranteur trying to bring this type of cuisine and this format together in North America. If he can, he’s looking to expand. “It’s built on a franchise model,” Ewasiuk said. He’s looking at a few other locations around the region.

Thousands of people will be converging on Fort Langley this weekend for one of its annual village parties. This time, they’re gathering to celebrate May Day (See story page A15) on Monday. But there’s another reason for a celebration in the centre of the village this weekend. On Saturday, May 19, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. the Fort Mall on Glover Road is hosting its a grand re-opening. Statewood Properties hired Cassian Contractors to refurbish the 1970s mall, giving it a new exterior, sidewalks, and parking lot with a “modern heritage” feel. And they did all that in just over two months. And in time for tourist season. A new feature of the mall, which I think is kind of cool, is the creation of a new paver pathway and gardens that have been added to connect Church Street with Glover Road. For those who enjoy walking around the village, this is an appreciated addition. With this revamp and the impending completion of the new IGA, Fort Langley’s business is getting a definite shot in the arm. “Cassian Contracting and Keystone Architecture did an absolutely fantastic job with the renovation of the Fort Mall,” said Statewood’s president Eric Woodward. “With a wide sidewalk to create more pedestrian interaction, reconfigured parking, new facade and gorgeous landscaping, I am thrilled. The Fort Mall will now contribute to the uniqueness and character of Fort Langley for years to come,” he added.

Kids’ craft supplies needed

In the meantime, here’s one of those feel-good tidbits that was passed along by another member of our Langley business community. The team at Black Bond Books on Willowbrook Drive are collecting new craft supplies until the end of May. Participating in what’s called the Cassidy’s Craft Campaign, the staff is accepting new items at the Langley store, with the items ultimately being donated to children receiving care at BC Children’s Hospital. Cool idea!

The Holy Falafel restaurant in Aldergrove’s Gloucester Estates has been open less than two months, but owner Greg Ewasiuk thinks it has potential to expand. Ewasiuk, a D.W. Poppy Secondary grad who grew up in Langley, worked for years in the restaurant industry while he was in school. Armed with business education and a math minor, he went into the high-tech industry, working for a Yaletown software firm. His connection to the food industry was sustained by his devotion to having lunch at a traditional Lebanese restaurant near his workplace. “They were lined up out the door there,” Ewasiuk said. He loved the food, and for 10 years offered to buy it from the owner. The original owner said no, no, no – and finally yes. Ewasiuk renamed the restaurant Holy Falafel, and started looking for a new location. He picked the Gloucester industrial park because of its incredible growth, with thousands of workers there who all needed somewhere to eat lunch. “We realized the potential of the business park behind us,” he said. Ultimately, he thinks people can get tired of eating the same thing day after day, and are looking for something new. There are still relatively few restaurant options in the area, although they’ve been expanding in the last few years. The location seems to have been a good choice. On the first day the restaurant opened, in March, there was a lineup out the door. He learned later that people had been coming by for days asking about when the place would open. “We actually ran out of food for the first four days,” he said. Even more encouraging, local rural residents have found the restaurant and begun showing up on weekends. The menu is based around falafel and shawarma.

New program helps seniors, people with disabilities modify homes

Would a new ramp, handrails or walk-in shower help you maintain your independence at home? BC Housing’s new Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program helps low-income B.C. seniors and people with disabilities make home modifications that will allow them to continue living at home. Through HAFI, homeowners and landlords with eligible tenants can apply for financial assistance of up to $20,000 for improvements that make their home more accessible and safe. The goal of the program is to enable people who have physical limitations to live at home longer. People’s physical needs change over time – sometimes, a small improvement to a home can make the difference between being able to live independently or not. Types of eligible projects include: 1 A=95!=G?J G9 I=??B='J &! JH=G!B='J0 1 E=<%J "&! $=J$ &" =77$JJ0 1 .=J'/H&/!$=7I B&!C &! JH&!=K$ =!$=J in the kitchen, 1 6$D$!

Someone in the household must have a permanent disability or loss of ability that makes it difficult to perform day-to-day activities. As well, the total household income and assets must be below a certain limit. BC Housing can tell you the income and house value limits for your area when you apply. The program is open to both homeowners and those living in market rental accommodation where rents are at the low end of market levels; landlords must apply for improvements on behalf of eligible tenants. .?GKG:G?GH' !$#FG!$<$9HJ0 =9 =%%?G7=HG&9 guide and application forms are available at www.bchousing.org/HAFI.

The Langley Seniors Resource Centre is inviting seniors in the community to join its new endeavour – a bike group.

Langley Seniors’ Resource Centre now has a small seniors cycling group. The centre, which has about 1,200 members, offers recreation, transportation, health, support, socializing and other programs. And now it’s looking for people who enjoy riding a bike. The centre has teamed up with a local group that has been promoting increased use of bikes – the Greater Langley Cycling Coalition. To help people get back in the saddle, the coalition is giving a workshop at the centre on Saturday, June 16, starting at 1 p.m. In this workshop people will learn about a variety of topics to help them enjoy biking, including: • buying a bike, • how to get a bike with the right fit, • keeping your bike safe, • the laws of the land when it comes to riding, • some of the local places to ride that people may not be aware of, • the principles of safer cycling, and • routine equipment maintenance. Discover or rediscover the joy of cycling. Pre-register for the workshop by calling the seniors’ resource centre at 604-530-3020.

Get up on stage

Now is the time to start preparing for this summer’s annual talent contest for Canadian seniors.

Canadians are living longer and costs for the Old Age Security (OAS) are rising. On April 1, 2023 the Government of Canada plans to start raising the age of eligibility for OAS and the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) from 65 to 67.*

What does this mean for you? 54 or older as of March 31, 2012

You may still obtain OAS/GIS at age 65

53 or younger as of March 31, 2012

The age of eligibility for OAS/GIS will change gradually between 2023 and 2029

Starting in July 2013, Canadians who are eligible for, but not yet receiving OAS will have the flexibility to delay receiving it in exchange for a higher monthly amount at a later date.

The number of working-age Canadians for every senior is decreasing** 6 5 4

Local auditions will be held in June for Senior Star, Canada’s largest talent competition dedicated to seniors. Now in its sixth year, this singing and musical instrument competition organized by Chartwell Seniors Housing REIT is open to anyone who is 65 years and over and a Canadian resident. Langley Gardens Retirement Community will host a regional audition on June 7 at 1 p.m. Registration forms can be obtained at Langley Gardens, 8888 202nd St. Contestants do not have to be living in a Chartwell residence. “Chartwell’s Senior Star has grown to become the largest celebration of senior talent in Canada,” said Brent Binions, president and CEO of Chartwell Seniors Housing REIT. “We are proud to support the incredible talent of today’s seniors and continue to be amazed and entertained year after year by the calibre of performers who participate.” The Regional Senior Star Competition will be held on June 14, 6-9 p.m., at Langley Gardens. During regional competitions, contestants are given a maximum of five minutes to sing a song, play an instrument, or do both, and their performance is videotaped. Musical accompaniment is provided to singing contestants, if required. A panel of three judges, made up of local musical experts, government officials, and media representatives choose the top three local contestants, each of whom will be recognized with a Senior Star trophy. Videos of the first and second place winners from across Canada are then submitted to a celebrity panel of judges who will narrow the list to nine competitors invited to compete in the Senior Star National Final. The final will be held in November 2012 in Niagara Falls, Ont. at the Scotiabank Theatre. For more information, go to www.chartwellreit.ca or contact Caroline Pors, 604-881-8113.

Langley hosts thespian battle

Five Fraser Valley drama clubs will show their best at the Playhouse. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

T

he curtain goes up this weekend on not just one, but five different community theatre productions at the Langley Playhouse. Theatre groups from throughout the Fraser Valley come together between May 20 and 26 for what is called the Theatre BC’s zone festival. It’s not about Langley Players, but the Brookswood drama club is hosting this event, which rotates around participating towns each year, explained Players president Angela Bell. “The festival is about the theatre community as a whole entity. It’s really an educational experience, and it’s about the TBC member clubs working and playing together,” she said. Each theatre group brings what is believed to be its best production of the year to the regional stage, hoping then to qualify for the provincials called Mainstage, being held in Kamloops at the beginning of July. Last year, the Langley Players won best in B.C., scooping up seven of 19 awards for their production of Lost in Yonkers. This year they’re entering their recent production of The Stillborn Lover on the Angela Bell opening night Sunday. Player president Other performances during the week include Surrey Little Theatre’s production of Mending Fences on Monday, Theatrix’s production of Next to Normal on Tuesday night, Stage 43’s showing of Mauritius on Wednesday, and Emerald Pig Theatrical Society’s production of A Particular Class of Women on Friday. The annual general meeting and a workshop will be offered Thursday. “We have had an excellent response in terms of attendance, but there are a few seats left – with sales coming in daily I don’t expect them to last long,” said Bell, advising anyone interested in attending to buy tickets – which when sold as singles are $15 each – in advance from their website at www.langleyplayers.com. • More online at www.langleyadvance.com

May Day

Celebration marks 90th year

Residents of Fort Langley gear up for another party marking Queen Victoria’s birthday. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

T

he village of Fort Langley is steeped with history, and the May Day festivities coming together this weekend will help pay homage to some of that rich heritage. This is much more than just another long weekend for merchants, residents, and visitors to Fort Langley. It’s May Day, Queen Victoria’s birthday, and villagers are, as they have for the past 90 years, planning a huge party on Monday, May 21 to mark the occasion. Fort Langley May Day began 90 years ago when Alex Houston and his wife hosted the party on their property on the river in front of their home (now the restored Houston House) on Allard Crescent, explained Fort resident and businesswoman Bays Blackhall. Since those early days, or at least as long as she can remember, Fort Langley has been the centre of the festivities, complete with a Maypole dance, parade, and

even the crowning of a young May Queen. “We look forward to the annual fair held in the Fort Langley Park where the parade ends and the crowning of the May Queen takes place followed by the Maypole dancing,” Blackhall said. “The BIA (business improvement area), the Fort, the museums, the CN Station, and the village will be involved in special events to make the whole day a memorable one for our families and visitors.” This year’s festivities will once again begin with the Lion’s Club pancake breakfast being served up at the 88th Avenue hall from 8 to 10:30 a.m. Then thousands of people are once again expected to gather along Mavis and Glover Roads to watch what’s believed to be the longest running May Day parade in B.C. That starts at 11 a.m. One of the highlights of the parade this year will be a large contingent of entries from the BC Farm Machinery and Agricultural Museum Association. Marking its 46th year as part of the parade, museum members are firing up 13 pioneer agricultural machines and driving them down Glover. Their entourage will include John Deere tractors from as early as 1937 and a 1919 Model T. “It’s great to see the excitement in both

the children’s faces and in the mixed group of families, farmers, and retired farmers. These old machines must bring back some pretty powerful memories,” said farm museum president Syd Pickerell. The May pole dancing, amusement rides, birthday cake, and vendors in Fort Langley Park begin after the parade – around 12:30 p.m. Langley Centennial Museum is piloting a new-old idea Monday. They’re hosting a women’s clothing swap in their King Street facilities, encouraging people to also stop in and visit the community’s heritage exhibit as well as the newest art exhibit by two Kwantlen First Nation artists. Even the Fort Langley National Historic Site, rich in its own heritage, jumps at the chance to be part of the May Day festivities year after year. Fun begins inside the gates of the Fort from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. with weapon demo, and will continue throughout the day with a fur traders wedding, cannon firing, as well as barrel-making and blacksmithing demonstrations. Admission is free for the day. May Day organizers warn motorists that the village will be congested on Monday, and Mary Avenue will be closed to traffic all day.

MAY IS CNIB VISION HEALTH MONTH

ADVERTISING FEATURE

Seeing beyond vision loss

BY TAMARA TEDESCO

“How are you going to be able to do this? How are you going to be able to bath a baby?” Those were some of the questions Shea Anker’s parents asked when she told them she was starting a family just over 10 years ago.

That’s because she’s been blind all her life.

When the school day’s done, Shea returns home and makes dinner. With the help of specialty kitchen gadgets, she makes everything from chocolate chip cookies to spaghetti to stew.

It’s small adaptations like this, she says, that allow her to run a smooth household and get everything done in a day, and she’s learned a lot of them from CNIB. In British Columbia, less than 10 per cent of funding comes from provincial government sources, and CNIB relies on charitable donations to provide services at no cost to people who are blind or partially sighted. To make a donation or learn more about how you can support CNIB programs and services in B.C., visit cnib.ca or call the toll-free CNIB Helpline at 1-800-563-2642.

Then it’s time for homework. First she does her own – using a computer with special software that reads aloud what is on the screen – then she helps the boys with theirs.

As a youth, Shea came to CNIB (Canadian National Institute for the Blind) a charity that provides support to Canadians who are blind or partially sighted. There, CNIB specialists taught her to read braille and to walk using a white cane, and her parents received valuable guidance on how to best support their daughter as she grew up without vision.

She says that, at times, the visual part of the boys’ homework makes it challenging for her to help them if they get stuck. But she always finds a strategy around it.

Now a single mother with two boys, 9 and 10, the challenges of motherhood are a bit different for Shea than for most parents.

When preparing for spelling tests, for example, she receives the word lists from teachers by email ahead of time. Then her computer reads the words to her so she can do practice tests with the boys.

Then 31, Shea faced many questions like these from the people in her life – people who knew she was responsible, caring and attentive enough to be a great mom, but who also knew it may be tough for her to raise a baby.

Shea starts her day like many others, up at the crack of dawn getting ready for the day. After preparing breakfast and lunches she sends her boys to school, and then goes to school herself. She’s in her third year of a major in English and history at the University of Northern British Columbia.

During Vision Health Month, CNIB is challenging British Columbians to take care of their eyes so that we can eliminate avoidable sight loss.

Overexposure to sunlight can cause longterm, irreversible damage to your eyes. 2 Get your eyes checked regularly. Early detection of an eye disease is key to getting treatment and maintaining your sight.

3 Quit smoking. Smokers are up to four

times more likely to develop AMD, the leading cause of vision loss in Canada. 4 Get healthy. Excess weight, high blood pressure and a high-fat diet are all risk factors for AMD and diabetic retinopathy. 5 Get your vitamins. A high dose of vitamin supplements has been shown to reduce the risk or slow the progression of AMD and cataracts.

P

redictions about a massive future earthquake or devastating floods sometimes find me looking out into our ‘lawn’ and musing ‘At least we’ll be able to eat the dandelions!’ It would be a good choice: dandelions (Taraxacum officinale) are said to have much more vitamin A than broccoli and almost as much iron as raw beet greens. Seed of cultivated dandelion varieties is now easy to obtain. Their main problem is bitterness – though that can be reduced by choosing young leaves and boiling or frying them. An alternative is tying up large dandelion plants so that the inner leaves are blanched. But dandelions are only one of many delicious edible weeds. Stinging nettles (Urtica dioica) are another favourite. They become stingless and as

Careful identification key to safe eating …continued from page A19 Apparently, there’s lots of protein in stinging nettles, plus vitamins C and A and iron. Another spinach substitute is lambs quarters (Chenopodium album) which grows about 60 centimetres (two feet) tall and has grey-green diamond-shaped leaves with a white floury substance on the underside. The tiny green knot-like flowers produce immense quantities of seed. Lambs quarters leaves are very tasty when boiled like spinach. However, just like spinach and nettles, boiling shrinks them drastically. Leaves of spinach and lambs quarters tend to contain more oxalic acid than those of most other vegetables, so it’s not a good idea to eat large quantities routinely. This is also true of sheep sorrel (Rumex acetosella), another salad green that has a fresh taste that’s somewhat acidic because the leaves contain oxalic acid. Sheep sorrel has fine, running roots and tiny red flowers like little bunches of knots up against the stem. It’s possible to buy cultivated sorrel plants or seed. They grows taller and more lush than the naturally occurring, weedy kind. In early spring, chickweed (Stellaria media) grows rapidly into a mat-like groundcover in gardens with rich soil. The early leaves, along with tiny white flowers,

can be used as a salad ingredient. It has a delicate, lettuce-like taste. Chickweed is best when grown rapidly, early, and snipped into small segments before using. Then there’s garlic mustard (Alliaria petiolata) which a vegan friend says tastes delightful in early spring salads. Garlic mustard has clusters of white, fourpetalled flowers and wrinkled, bumpy-looking leaves with pointy edges. It tastes and smells of garlic and mustard. But garlic mustard is also one of the most invasive weeds I’ve ever encountered. If garlic mustard is recommended to you by a friend, you might want to think again, and choose cultivated mustard instead. Garlic mustard is reported to be unusable by any of our native wildlife. It also crowds out the other plants our wildlife needs for survival. It’s important to securely identify all these plants before eating them. Have a knowledgeable gardener look at them in person or scrutinize several photos and descriptions on the internet. The Latin name is much more reliable than the common name. Even when identification seems secure, it is safest to taste very small quantities at first. People with food allergies should be especially careful.

Langley City jumps on ‘ban’ wagon Langley City is going to try to landscape naturally. On Monday council passed a cosmetic pesticide ban that applies to residential and City lands. Currently the City does not use pesticides in parks but does to control weeds on places such as playing fields, streets, lanes, and medians. The proposed bylaw called for a ban on residential lands but Councillor Ted Schaffer pitched the idea of including City lands. “I’d like us to see us be the stewards of our City,” he said. Coun. Gayle Martin and Teri James who noted that the inclusion of City lands comes with an estimated $60,000 price tag. “I think I’d like to have a better [idea] of what this is going to cost,” Martin said. The figure was based on staff estimates of needing two staff and equipment working for five months of the year to do manual landscaping. Coun. Dave Hall said staff time could be reallocated to reduce costs

and was impressed that the elected officials added municipal lands. “That was a significant win this evening for us,” Griffiths commented. He said the Parks and Environment Committee members have repeatedly suggested the ban so it was a surprise that it passed with so little fanfare. Christina Beck, with the Canadian Cancer Society, had spoken before council twice, advocating for the ban. “It’s just so nice to see that they are valuing health,” Beck said. “It makes the bylaw so much stronger to be comprehensive.” The ban will not apply to products needed for human health (such as pest control related to disease transmission), ones that impact agriculure or forestry, and products needed for lands related to transportation, public utilities, or pipelines. The bylaw is available through the Langley City website (www.city.langley.bc.ca) or at City hall. Most neighbouring municipalities have pesticide bans. The bylaw will rely on provincial government lists of pesticides/toxins and the provincial list of noxious and invasive plants and animals classed as non-native. There are 40 B.C. communities that have these bans, with 38 of them including residential and municipal lands.

and the City could work closer with the Langley Environmental Partners Society (LEPS). “To put a price on public health is a pretty tough thing to do,” Hall said. Twelve-year-old friends Taya Velikajne, Isabelle Manning, and Sheridan Trowell spoke to council during the committee of the whole, where the public had a chance to comment on the proposed ban. While Isabelle and Sheridan called for the ban on behalf of all local kids, for Taya, it was more personal. Her family makes her stay indoors at times of the year when spraying is common because she’s had severe reactions when playing outside and has tested negative to pollen and other natural allergens. The H.D. Stafford Middle School students aren’t new to green efforts. They used to help with the Blacklock Fine Arts Elementary community garden and the school’s program to garden with the Langley Seniors Resource Centre. “I’m so happy,” said Taya after the vote. Schaffer told the three friends after the meeting that they have influenced a decision made by government. During the public input, Rhys Griffiths of the Langley Field Naturalists spoke in favour of the ban

T

he call went out this week for artists and artisans interested in being part of Langley’s newest festival – this one held in conjunction with the Canada Day festivities in Fort Langley. Langley Arts Council is going to hold an arts and crafts festival on Sunday, July 1, and is hunting for participants for the inaugural One Can Arts Festival. This event will be held in conjunction with the Canada Day events held with the BC Farm Machinery Museum and the Langley Centennial Museum. Attendance at the museum’s Canada Day celebrations has grown steadily over the past few years with more than 6,000 attending in 2011, explained Peter Tulumello, the Langley Centennial Museum’s cultural services manager. And with the addition of the arts festival, he and other organizers hope to attract more than 8,000 people to this year’s celebrations. Several entertainers have already been booked to perform at the festival, “to amuse and delight children of all ages,” Tulumello said. A kids’ fun zone is also being planned, with games, arts activities, contests, and a scavenger hunt. “The showcase and sale of artworks by local and regional artists and artisans will

Cloverdale Rodeo & Country Fair

Barbecuers introduce smokin’ event to fair by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

C

Langley Advance files

owboys and barbecue just seem to go together. At least that’s how Brookswood’s Kevin Lunn sees it, applauding the addition of a barbecue competition to this weekend’s Cloverdale Rodeo & Country Fair. “I’m not really a cowboy, I’m an ’80s hair metal guy,” said the 50year-old barbecue hobbiest who – partnering with his wife April and friend Randy Squires of Willoughby – make up the Porkaholics team, one of 30 competing in the new Cloverdale Cowboy Cook-Off barbecue competition added to the long-weekend festivities. But the Porkaholics aren’t the only Langley tie to this new feature. It’s actually the brainchild of Angie Quaale, owner of Langley’s Well Seasoned, who has taken on the organizing role for this competition. “We conceptualized the event from the very beginning with the rodeo board and general manager. They were very keen to make this part of their already fantastic event,” she said, adding that this new competition is a great complement to her BBQ on the Bypass she holds every September. “Anything we can to do grow the barbecue community and barbecue events in Canada is important,” she said, and Quaale Angie Quaale is thrilled by the response she’s getting. “We are sold out with 30 teams coming from Kansas, Montana, Oregon, Saskatchewan, Alberta, B.C. and Washington State,” she explained. “The rodeo has put up $10,000 in prize money, making it a very attractive competition for cooks.” This new event is part of a barbecue competition circuit, sanctioned by the Pacific Northwest BBQ Association. Saturday will be “sort of the fun day for teams,” Quaale said, explaining that they will compete in chili, pie and a bacon battle where each team is given five pounds of bacon and directed to make anything they want using bacon as the feature ingredient. Then, after cooking all night, Sunday is the main barbecue event. The teams cook pulled pork, beef brisket, chicken and ribs. While Quaale expects the event to attract a lot of attention, she advises people with a hankering for food to be around for free sample. “The public can purchase barbecue all weekend but to sample the competition food for free on Sunday will be a real treat,” she said. The barbecue competition is being held in the northwest corner of the fairgrounds, beside the food court. “Follow your nose,” Quaale advised. • More online at www.langleyadvance.com

oung Murrayville singer Kaitlyn Santa Juana had to do some serious hustling when she left an open audition for the BC Junior Talent Search – held at the Central City mall in Surrey May 5 – and rushed back to Langley and on to the stage of the Christian Life Assembly for the finals of Langley Has Talent. “I didn’t have to feel the nerves,” she said, “Which was probably a good thing.” Needless to say, it was a hectic day for the 15-year-old Grade 9 student from Brookswood Secondary. She may not have placed in the top three of Langley’s most talented, this time around, but she did secure herself a spot in the finals of the provincial competition wrapping up this weekend at the Cloverdale Rodeo & Country Fair.

In the past, the Neighbourhood Art Studios have offered two scholarships a year. This year, four were offered, due to what Barrett described as the “large response.” This year’s winners are Casey Xu of Ecole Riverdale Elementary, Victoria Fowler from Langley Fine Arts, Ceina Frisson of D.W. Poppy Secondary, and Alexis Rakush from Alex Hope Elementary. Each artist receives a scholarship worth $1,000, which features 48 art classes and all the art supplies needed for their studies, he explained. They’re part of Barrett’s Pay It Back program. “We have enjoyed modest success and wanted a way to repay our community for supporting our studio,” he said, reflecting back on the past 20 years of teaching art in the Langley area. “Our Pay-it-Back program was designed to do that where we thought it is most needed,” he said, “in our young, budding artists.” The public art and school art programs have suffered cutbacks for various reasons, Barrett elaborated, so children who have artistic talent have not had the chance to learn at a higher level. That also helped motivate him to award four scholarships this year. “The students have worked hard to achieve their scholarships and we are very proud to give back to our community with these awards,” Barrett said. “We would like to thank all the applicants and hope those who were not successful will try again for the 2013 awards. In the meantime, keep drawing and painting; you can only get better.”

and we have a potentially devastating offensive lineup,” Thunder governor Rob Buchan said, adding that the team had been working on bringing Billings back for some time. Billings’ on-floor impact is sure to be measurable but he is sure to have a tremendous impact off the floor as well. Billings is a Langley native, the most notable name in local lacrosse, and is known for giving back to the community, including being involved with Langley Minor Lacrosse.

“It’s one thing to add talent like Garrett has, but to be able to combine that with the fact he’s a local kid and someone the community can get behind as one of their own is a big deal for our team,” Buchan said. In 2010, his last season with the Thunder before remaining in Ontario, Billings led the team in points with 63 in 13 games played. The previous year, 2009, he topped all Thunder point-getters with 77 in 15 games.

CONTROL WEIGHT = CONTROL BLOOD SUGAR By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD.

Long term weight control without controlling blood sugar is destined to fail. This is why we have an epidemic of obesity. How it works: Stops the “roller coaster” of cravings and appetite to eat foods like sugar and starches that cause high blood glucose levels, which then brings on your pancreas to automatically pump insulin into your blood stream. Subsequently the high level of insulin precipitates low levels of blood glucose and cravings for more sugar and starchy carbohydrates (breads, noodles, crackers, cereals, french fries) which you don’t need and therefore it goes into unwanted fat storage and being overweight. Experts now recognize these basic facts.#40 Bell Blood Sugar Imbalance helps to stop this vicious cycle and puts you in control. Dr. Hammond says this natural product works 10 times better because it reprograms our brain and pancreas to release insulin in a controlled manner. Helpful non-fattening eating suggestions in the box. Fibers and exercise like walking are beneficial and help after you control the underlying basic blood sugar imbalance. #40 ! Working in a health food store I heard people saying how well #40 works. I tried it myself. Finally a product that controls my blood sugar much better than what anything else we had in the store. Thank you for helping people around the world. Irene M. Urdialez, 43, Brynton Beach, FL ! My medical indicated pre-diabetic. I took #40. When re-tested readings were fine. This helped my metabolism and my weight is down 25 lbs. I am grateful to the health food store people for their advice. Michael O’Brien, 60, Rutherglen, ON ! I finally found the right approach to lose weight. I tried for 3 years to lose weight. After starting #40 my blood sugar is stable now. I was able to stop overeating and lost my excess weight. Sara John, 40, Kitchener, ON ! I was struggling for 15 years with weight gain in spite of diet and exercise. I was diagnosed as pre-diabetic. I will forever be grateful to the store manager that explained to me to take #40 and read suggestions to avoid fattening foods. I lost 70 lbs. My fasting blood sugar is now 92. My 2 hour post meal glucose level is now 92 as well. My new shape raised my self-esteem and gave me immeasurable peace of mind. Karen Maples, 55, Clarksville, TN !Diabetic eliminated high blood sugar levels with #40. My readings were 140 to 200 and are now 99 to 122 range where I want it to be. Before I bought about 10 different supplement that were more expensive and didn’t work as well. I also lost some weight. A great improvement in my health and daily living.

Langley Athletic FC will be looking for its first Pacific Coast Soccer League win this weekend. The local senior men’s team is playing back-to-back home games this weekend, and one of its venues has been changed. On Saturday, Langley hosts Victoria United. The game has been moved from Willoughby Park NW to McLeod Athletic Park (MAP). Game time is 2 p.m. Twenty-four hours from that opening kickoff, on Sunday at 2 p.m., Langley Athletic is back at MAP to take on the Victoria Highlanders. Admission is free and a full concessions stand will be available at both games. LAFC lost its first two games in the PCSL, 3-1 to visiting Khalsa Sporting Club at MAP on May 3, and 3-2 to host Bellingham United on May 6. After a successful inaugural USL Super 20 season, LAFC’s men’s squad was accepted for entry into the highly competitive PCSL. The move to the PCSL transitions LAFC from a U20 team to an open men’s team. The B.C.-based PCSL is an inter-city, cross-border league with a season that runs typically from May to August. Member clubs are drawn from across the Pacific Northwest in cities from the B.C. Interior, Fraser Valley, Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island, through Washington State, and Oregon at times. This Pacific Coast league offers high level play for men and women in premier and reserve divisions. It gives players from Canada and the U.S. who are interested in elite competition the opportunity to travel the Pacific Northwest for games during the summer months.

Track and field

Star pole vaulter joins TWU TWU has added a CIS medal contender to its lineup. The Trinity Western University track and field team will enter the world of CIS women’s pole vaulting this fall. Last Thursday, May 9, Spartans’ track and field coach Laurier Primeau announced the signing of top-flight Australian vaulter Rebecca Marchant of Blackburn, Melbourne. The 5’8” graduate of East Doncaster Secondary School (2011) and transfer from Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology has a personal best pole vault of four metres, a clearance that, if vaulted here this past season, would have won her a Canada West gold medal and a CIS silver medal.

And, for a 19-year-old, there is no currently competing Canadian who has jumped within 10 centimetres of her personal best, a height that, if she was Canadian, would have her tied for the second best junior women’s vault of all time. “Sometimes, when recruiting, finding the right performance, academic and faith combination for Trinity Western University is a welcome challenge, and sometimes, through God’s work, things seem to fall into place for us,” Primeau said. “The addition of Rebecca to our team is an example of the latter. Not only is she an excellent pole vaulter, but she also has an incredibly high academic standard and, beyond that, has shown a heart for serving through her help with homeless and disadvantaged youth.” continued on page A36…

The ’Caps’ plans to kick off their season with a win were undone in Victoria last weekend, as an early red card to defender Brittany Galindo gave the host Highlanders a man advantage for more than 50 minutes. Despite goals from Chelsea Buckland and Janine Frazao, Whitecaps FC fell to a 3-2 defeat. The ’Caps will look to dress a dangerous and experienced squad. Canadian women’s national team stars Desiree Scott and Kaylyn Kyle don the blue and white for their first match this season and will look to help push the team to a big win, while Hawaiian striker Mele French will be eager to showcase her attacking talents for the home faithful. As for the Rush, Colorado makes its only trip north during the regular season. The ‘Caps will travel to Denver for the rematch on July 13. For tickets, visit www. whitecapsfc.com, contact Hugh Hamilton at 778-3301360, or purchase them at the gate on game night.

Recruit star in classroom

…continued from page A35 Marchant, who is amongst the top three junior pole vaulters in Australia, has competed for Athletics Victoria since 2005 and has also been a part of Australia’s U17 to U19 national development squads. At the Australian Age Championships, Marchant has won three gold medals and four silver medals in pole vault since 2009, and three silver medals in triple jump since 2007. In pole vault, she came second at the 2011 Australian Open Championship and third at the 2011 Taiwan Indoor Invitational Championship. In the classroom, Marchant was amongst the very best in Australia as she ranked in the top seven per cent of all high school graduates. She has also earned the East Doncaster SC Merit Certificate each of the past six years, along with three East Doncaster SC subject excellence awards. “Attending Trinity Western provides a unique opportunity to combine athletics with my faith, which are two of my great passions,” said Marchant, who plans to study either political science or business marketing. “I am also excited about experiencing a different culture and particularly living on campus.”

Locals earn top three results Van Eck ready to run Local student-athletes are off to a flying start to the Fraser Valley championships.

Here are the results of Langley athletes who finished in the top three of their events on the opening day of the high school championships May 15. Senior boys 400-metre hurdles (finals) 1st Eli Kastelein, Langley Christian, 57.55 2nd Ben Marshall, D.W.

Langley’s teenaged track and field athletes ran and jumped to top-three results Tuesday, the opening day of the Fraser Valley high school track and field championships at McLeod Athletic Park. Run concurrently with the Zone 3 BC Summer Games trials, the high school meet continue today (May 17) from 5:308:45 p.m. at MAP.

Poppy, 16.08 3rd Trevor Whiton, Walnut Grove, 17.69 Senior girls 100m hurdles 2nd Andrea Robinson, Walnut Grove, 15.81 3rd Shelby Smithson, Walnut Grove, 16.51 Senior girls 400m dash 1st Ashley Windsor, Walnut Grove, 56.13 Senior boys 400m dash 3rd Ethan Wilkinson, Walnut Grove, 50.61 Senior girls 1,500m steeplechase 1st Samantha Gillis, Walnut Grove, 5:35.57 The B.C. championships take place June 1-2 at Swangard Stadium in Burnaby.

The second annual Burnaby Atmosphere Mind Over Mountain Adventure Race (MOMAR) is set to take place on Saturday, June 2. With the event just around the corner, Langley’s Nic Van Eck and teammate Tyler Palmer of Burnaby are in preparation mode for MOMAR’s 50km Enduro Course. Although Van Eck has already participated in a MOMAR, this will be a first for Palmer. “We are just two guys with little MOMAR race experience, but with a fair amount of recreational experience in each of the disciplines,” said Van Eck. “For us this race is about having fun competing, and check-

ing out what this race is all about so we are prepared for future adventure races.” The MOMAR is an off road multisport sprint adventure race that requires teams to mountain bike, kayak, trail run, trek, and orienteer through checkpoints over 30 to 50 kilometres of scenic and rugged West Coast terrain. The MOMAR series has staged 33 races in B.C. over 12 race seasons. Although the race itself is three to eight hours, the MOMAR is more like a weekend event. It’s not too late to sign up for MOMAR Burnaby. For more information on the MOMAR series, visit www. mindovermountain.com.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Take a well-deserved rest during the four weeks ahead. Look for success in charitable, spiritual, governmental, institutional zones, and in warehouses, assembly lines. Think and act alone – but after you seek advice, find and/or utilize an agent, or enter counselling. Management, administration and delegation of tasks will arise naturally. These themes not only arise during the month ahead, they also contain your best luck for 13 months ahead. However, don’t make any irrevocable commitments (to these zones) before September: be alert, reject temptation. Shop Saturday. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Your popularity rises. Social delights, entertainment, optimism and joie de vivre flow into your life – not only for the month ahead, but until mid-2013. Take care now to Aug. 30, as this same social arena can hold disappointment or traps if you’re tempted to take advantage. E.g., don’t abandon a lover in order to play the field. Until August, a wish might come true in career or travel zones. From June onward (best after August) a big life wish might come true in romantic, creative, child-oriented or pleasure areas. Joy arrives early week. Caution Wednesday. You soar Saturday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The month and year ahead (13 months) powerfully and beneficially emphasize your career, prestige, relations with higher-ups, and your standing in the community. It’s a complex influence, so be careful now to the end of August. Higher-ups favour you, but you might be tempted to push for too much, too soon – DON’T do anything underhanded to get ahead. You’d create a dead-end. If you meet headwinds, simply wait until September onward. Many Virgos will receive a promotion before mid-2013. Early week, ambitions. Wednesday/Thursday, social joys, barriers. Retreat, rest and plan Saturday.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Sunday starts a month of short trips, visits, communications, errands, paperwork and details, casual friends and siblings. More importantly, you begin a 13-month cycle of superb luck and expansion in these areas. BUT this luck can be a door to a trap before September. So proceed, but with your wits about you. (E.g., think twice before making that threatening call to your local politician.) Now to August, communications could lead to a) money and/or b) a relationship solution (or a new one) (in either case, it will develop slowly). Be cautious all Wednesday. Saturday’s romantic. Taurus April 20-May 20: The month ahead accents money, spending, selling, earning – and possessions of all kinds, including memories and relationships. Very good luck imbues this area now through early August. Another wave of even bigger luck hits your money pocket mid-June through mid2013. You’re going to be happy! BUT – until Aug. 30, a trap can be disguised as good luck, so proceed carefully. Do not violate your principles and morals in dollar pursuits. Money’s great after 3 p.m. PDT Monday, and Tuesday. Be cautious when driving, talking Wednesday to Friday. Home, food, nature please you, Saturday. Gemini May 21-June 20: A long, dark night is almost over. It’s been 16 years since your relationships started (from your point of view) rejecting, eluding and opposing you. This reached a peak in 2011/12, as karmic repayment was enforced by the cosmos. It’s not all over yet – and won’t be until Aug. 31 frees you from karma’s grip. But even now, you have begun to mellow and smile. Others are finding you attractive. By June, you enter one of the luckiest years of your life (though it’s better after August). The future’s bright! Your energy, charisma soar early week. Buy nothing Wednesday. Friends, Saturday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: A month of legal, intellectual, far travel, cultural, educational and love themes begins now. There have been many pitfalls for you in these areas for the last 13 months – and more exist, until Aug. 30. Yet these zones are growing luckier and luckier – by now, as long as you don’t push things, you’ll probably just slide past those pits (of temptation, resentful action, etc.). By June, a major massive luck enters these zones, to last through June 2013. But remember, it’s way better after August. Sunday eve to Tuesday emphasizes these areas. Be careful with career, VIPs midweek. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: A month of mystery, changes, commitments, high finance, others’ finances, subconscious promptings and sexual desire begins Sunday. This whole arena has obstructed, delayed and potentially even trapped you over the last 13 months, and it continues this way (though weakly) until the end of August. However, sweet, affectionate vibes have also entered (in April) and support you to August. In June, an even greater luck enters, to last into mid-2013. All’s best after August. If there’s been a divorce, now the “asset wrangling” begins. Early week highlights all this. Caution Wednesday. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The 13 months ahead emphasize relationships, opportunities and challenges, relocation, dealings with the public, fame, contracts, negotiations, competition and possible litigation. You might marry, if single; or divorce, if unhappily attached. In all, success, luck and joy come through others – so be eager, a joiner, diplomatic. “Relating” contains pitfalls through August – don’t fall for temptation, skulduggery, or the promise of easy rewards. Proceed carefully. (After August, the luck’s good, pure!) Monday/Tuesday hold clues. DON’T invest Wednesday: protect health.

May 20 - 26, 2012 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The week, month and year ahead hold an increase in chores, duties and your employment (or employer) role. Protect your health now to June 2013. (Thighs, hips, lungs, elbows, wrists are vulnerable.) Don’t over-focus on these areas before September – pitfalls exist. (E.g., don’t overdo vitamins; don’t dabble in chores as an excuse to avoid meetings or social environments.) After August, you can luckily plunge into big jobs. Luckily, because you’ll be compensated accordingly. Early week provides clues. Be alert Wednesday: relationships need care! Lucky secrets revealed Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A month of romance, of creative and speculative surges, pleasure, beauty, and fun with kids, begins now. This trend is mixed – good luck, difficult karma – now through August. (E.g., I landed my lover; didn’t realize that he was wanted by every taxman in North America.) Afterward, to June 2013, the influence is purely lucky. So you might want to wait (especially if you were born Jan. 20-25, any year). Your sexual side remains “intense” until July. Monday/Tuesday are romantic. Midweek needs caution with chores, machines, health. Exciting meetings, opportunities Saturday! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The month ahead emphasizes family, property, security, nature, nutrition, stomach, breasts, soul and retirement. These zones are blessed with affection, forgiveness, prosperity and “prestige buoyancy” now to mid-2013.You could move to a better neighbourhood. But until Aug. 30, a skein of traps and dead-ends (though often “pleasant” ones) spreads through this whole area. So be cautious until September. Clues exist Monday/Tuesday. Midweek brings romantic notions. Careful Wednesday: (self?) deception, unpredictability and refusal reign. Chores, machinery are lucky Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-727-3673

Thursday, May 17, 2012 | LangleyAdvance

Did you know that you are participating in the largest cancer fundraising event in Canada and one of the largest in the world? In 2011 more than 180,000 participants attended one of 501 events. Together Canadians raised close to $55 million. There were more than 36,000 survivors who walked the Victory Lap. And over 500,000 participants lit luminaries in honor of or in memory of loved ones. And the events were organized with the help of 35,000 volunteers. Last year in BC and the Yukon, more than 15,000 participants were involved in 49 events and raised $5.2 million. More than 2,400 survivors celebrated by walking the Victory Lap. Participants lit almost 14,500 luminaries and 2,900 volunteers made it all happen. I am very proud of the contribution of BC and Yukon communities. These funds make it possible for the Canadian Cancer Society to invest in life saving cancer research and clinical trials, lead prevention initiatives and deliver trusted information and caring support to people with cancer. Matthew Claxton/Langley Advance

Relay For Life is about the power of an idea and the passion of people who are committed to fighting cancer. Relay For Life is about life not cancer.

Jennifer Schroeder has gone from a first-year volunteer to organizing more than 50 volunteers for this year’s Relay for Life at McLeod Athletic Park.

Relay For Life also makes it possible for the Canadian Cancer Society to have more impact against more cancers that any other cancer charity. Thank you for your contribution.

Big job for Relay volunteers

Where does the money go? When the Relay for Life is over, the money raised helps support research.

elay for Life teams in Langley have raised well more than a million dollars in the past seven years. Once the Relay is over, the money goes towards support for patients, for education about cancer prevention such as anti-smoking campaigns, and also towards research. The Canadian Cancer Society recently released its list of the top 10 discoveries of 2011 in cancer treatment that it helped fund. At the top of the list was a large international trial which found that a drug called exemestane could reduce the risk of breast cancer by 65 per cent, compared to a placebo. The discovery was lauded by the American Society of Clinical Oncology as one of the most significant breakthroughs of the year.

Luminaries spell out the word “CURE” in the grandstands at the McLeod Athletic Park during the 2011 Langley Relay for Life. researcher, Dr. Gang Zheng in Toronto, is also using lasers, in combination with nanoparticles, to zap cancer cells without using harmful radiation. Because cancer is not one disease, but rather is hundreds of diseases, there is not ever likely to be a single cure. Due to better treatments and healthier lifestyles, especially lower rates of smoking, death rates in Canada from the four major types of cancers have gone down 21 per cent for men and nine per cent for women over the last 20 years.

Other research projects partially funded by the Cancer Society included a new way of catching cancer early in those with a rare syndrome that makes them susceptible to cancer, the discovery of a human blood stem cell that could help treat blood-borne cancers better, and a method developed in Vancouver by Dr. Haishan Zeng, which uses lasers to detect cancer cells. Zeng’s project could find pre-cancerous lesions with a 96 per cent sensitivity, in combination with existing methods. Another Canadian
