The B.C. government is making Langley and other school district find millions more in cuts. by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

The Langley School District has to find more than $7 million more in cuts in its budget to fund provincially mandated wage settlements. Every provincial public sector employee whose contracts expire on or after Dec. 31, 2011 falls under the B.C. government’s 2012 Cooperative Gains Mandate. The province isn’t providing any additional funding for these wage settlements. “I think it’s ridiculous to come to boards,” said Trustee Megan Dykeman. “Obviously there’s going to be impacts to the district. I think it’s completely unacceptable downloading.” She went on to criticize the provincial government’s use of “Orwellian doublespeak” by calling it cooperative when districts have no say in it. “I think Employers, such it’s as school districts must create savings ridiculous plans to “free up to from within existing budgets to provide come to modest compensaboards.” tion increases,” the Megan Ministry of Finance Dykeman says. Staff informed the board around October of the province’s mandate and has been working on the problem. The province sent a reminder letter in early December. “You’re still required to have a balanced budget and find extra money,” said secretary-treasurer David Green. “It’s obviously a very challenging mandate.” The district will have to find about $429,000 this year for CUPE agreements, and about twice that next year to meet the two per cent per year increases. The province has said districts can come up with 1.5 per cent this year, and then 2.5 per cent next year to make up the four per cent. The savings must be found by mid-January so the provicial bargaining unit can start talks with CUPE for its contract that expired in June. For 2013/2014 teacher contracts, the district must find $2 million and $4 million for the year after. About $300,000 will be needed for non-union staff increases (for example principals, vice principals and administration). The Cooperative Gains Mandate does not allow employers to reduce service levels nor transfer costs of existing services to the public. The savings must be found through “operational cost reductions, increased efficiency, service redesign, business gains, and other initiatives.” Langley has struggled in recent years to clear off its books a $13.75 million deficit and under the guidence of the B.C. Auditor General’s office expects to have it paid off by the end of this school year, earlier than required.

Susan Magnusson was honoured for her work to bring music to the Langleys.

Susan Magnusson was pleasantly surprised by being named H.D. Stafford Good Citizen of the Year.

Matthew Claxton/Langley Advance

by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A woman who has brought musical education to Langley for almost 40 years was surprised Tuesday with a major community service award. Susan Magnusson was named the H.D. Stafford Good Citizen of the Year at the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce’s Christmas dinner. A startled looking Magnusson was called up to the stage to accept the honour, given annually to someone who gives of their own time and energy to make Langley a better place. Magnusson joined several previous winners on stage, including Dale Ball, Sylvia Anderson, Tim Lounsbury, Marlene Grinnell, Jim McGregor, and David Esworthy. “This is truly a great honour to join this prestigious group of good citizens,” Magnusson said. She was lucky enough to turn a passion for music into a career, and through that to meet people and make a difference, she said. Magnusson first moved to Langley in the early 1970s. She said she read in the Langley Advance about an open house at the Langley Community Music School, and as the holder of a music degree, she was interested

and pleasantly surprised. When one of the LCMS founders had to take medical leave not long after, Magnusson joined the school, teaching in the evenings while keeping her full-time job in Vancouver by day. After a while, she quit her old job to devote herself full-time to work at the school. In 2001 she became the principal when it moved into its new facility on 207th Street. Over the years she has built up an impressive list of achievements, from having a student

perform at Carnegie Hall, to her work with numerous local boards, committees, and community groups. Chamber president Angie Quaale listed some of the projects that Magnusson has been a part of: co-director of ceremonies for the 2010 BC Summer Games, service on the board of Tourism Langley, a founding member of the Langley Jazz Festival, involvement with Langley Literacy, and a director of OnStage Langley. Magnusson said she and the

music school have done well because of the support of the community for music and the arts. Art is sometimes considered a non-essential in modern life, Magnusson said. “But in my opinion, it makes a healthy community,” she said. She’s hoping to continue adding programs and bursaries at the music school to provide more education, for both children and adults. “There’s never a dull moment,” Magnusson said.

Driving

Fatal crash remains under investigation A senior was killed and two others seriously hurt in a three-car crash in Aldergrove. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

An 87-year-old man was killed in a threecar crash Monday evening in Aldergrove. Cpl. Holly Marks said the incident began with a car heading north on 264th Street, and waiting to turn left onto Roberson Crescent. Just before 5 p.m., as the first driver was waiting, a second car, a Chevrolet commercial van, slowed down

behind the car waiting to make the turn. The next car, a Nissan Rogue, didn’t slow down and tried to swerve to avoid the van. The Nissan driver failed, and slammed into the back of the van, said Marks. The Nissan then veered into the southbound lane and crashed head on into a Toyota Tacoma. “It is believed the 87-year-old male driver of the Rogue die instantly,” said Marks. He was not wearing a seatbelt. His spouse was taken to hospital with serious, life threatening injuries, Marks said. The 44-year-old woman driving the southbound Tacoma also suffered serious injuries, but it is believed that she will survive, Marks said.

The two men in the work van were not injured. The northbound vehicle waiting to turn, which was the only one not hit at the scene, did not stay at the corner after the crash. The exact cause of the crash has not been determined, but police do not believe alcohol was a factor, Marks said. The police will be doing mechanical inspections of all the cars involved. Volunteers with RCMP Client Support and Victim Services are able to help victims, family, and witnesses of the crash. Anyone who saw the collision and has not spoken to the police can call the RCMP at 604-532-3200.

Kettles

Ring those Christmas bells

A few holiday helpers can bring support to Langley’s homeless and less fortunate.

Make your holiday WISHES COME TRUE

by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

The annual Christmas Kettle Campaign by the Salvation Army could use some more help from the community. “We need lots of volunteers,” said Shirley Stewart, overseeing the campaign this year. “We have lots, but we still have lots of spaces.” The campaign is familiar to anyone who has gone shopping during the Christmas season. Volunteers, armed with jingle bells and thank-you cards, stand outside local stores and wish people a merry Christmas. Many of those passersby drop coins, and the odd bill, into the red kettles watched over by the volunteers. The money collected here stays in Langley, noted Stewart, who talked to the Langley Advance this week while thousands of coins were sorted and counted. Cash raised by the annual kettle campaign goes towards the Salvation Army’s Gateway of Hope. The Gateway is a shelter for the homeless, especially on bitterly cold winter nights. But it is also designed to help people get off the streets, to find permanent homes, and job training, and to help people improve their own opportunities. The money from the kettles will go towards everything from the meals served daily at the Gateway, to chef training, the Options Program, to the emergency shelter itself.

Matthew Claxton/Langley Advance

Kayla Corse is volunteering five shifts a week to help with the Salvation Army Kettle Campaign in Langley – but more volunteers are still badly needed. The ultimate goal this year is to raise $250,000, a tall order with the cash being raised just a few handfuls of change at a time. “People have been so generous so far,” said Stewart. “But Langley’s like that.” The kettles can be found all around town in almost every neighbourhood, but especially at shopping hot spots where people will be gathering to do their Christmas shopping. The Willowbrook Shopping Centre, various IGA locations, Wal-Mart, London Drugs, Canadian Tire, Army & Navy, Otter Co-op, and liquor stores will all host kettles inside or near their entrances. There will be kettles at the Costco on weekends. Stewart is still looking for local residents to fill many of the shifts between now and Christmas, when the campaign ends. To volunteer for a two or three hour shift, call the Salvation Army at 604514-7375 and ask to speak to the Kettle Campaign coordinator.

The next morning at 7:30 a.m., the steers were gone and a door to the barn was open.

After two days of searching, they haven’t found hide nor hair of the missing steers. Although the animals had escaped once before, they didn’t go far and were quickly rounded up on that occasion, said Kristina. The family isn’t sure if the animals escaped, or were stolen, Kristina said. The family has contacted the Langley Animal Protection Society, which has dealt with missing livestock before. They are also watching auctions, especially keeping an eye out for the rarer of the two steers, a black and white belted Galloway. Anyone who has spotted the steers can call the Langley Animal Protection Society at 604-857-5055.

Glen Valley

Deadline looms for forest fans

Have you heard about the BAHA’I FAITH?

Locals said the Township should preserve a forest, although it can’t raise the $3 million price.

There was simply no way to raise $3 million in two and a half months, Glen Valley conservationists told Langley Township council Monday.

Cooperation one-sided The Cooperative Gains Mandate is worthy of George Orwell himself. It’s a bad break for Langley School District. It’s a worse break for students in Langley schools. And we suspect that, when all is said and done, the unions will end up paying dearly for their wage settlements. But the province comes out of it all smelling of roses. That must be where the “cooperative gains” are made. The provincial government gets to be the good guy with the unions, settling contracts that it can’t afford to meet – and then generously allowing individual school districts to pay for its largesse. It will be the school districts – the administrators and the school trustees – that will have to be the bad guys who find millions of dollars worth of cuts. And here’s the kicker: the provincial authorities have magnanimously mandated that there will be no cuts in services. Equal magnanimity is shown in the provincial decree that the deficit that the province has created – a whopping $7 million, in Langley’s case alone – will not be downloaded onto the public through added fees or costs. With legislated class-size limits, teachers might escape relatively unscathed, but watch for the maintenance crews to once again bear the brunt, one way or another. Cooperation, indeed. More like divide and conquer. Premier Christy Clark’s government gets to swing into election mode in the spring with a few less pesky unions nipping at its heels. Meanwhile, Langley schools, still reeling from the district’s self-made deficit debacle of a few years ago, get to tighten their belts to the spine. And ultimately, the saddest note is that the students are the ones who will pay. – B.G.

Township council travel allowance

Saintly disposition questioned

Dear Editor, Wow, what a saint we have in Councillor Steve Ferguson! He will gladly accept even more of my tax dollars, and then he alone will decide who is worthy of said donations [Travel allowance going to charity, Dec. 11 Letters, Langley Advance]. But wait – he just bought some raffle tickets from whom, exactly? I’m sorry, but I would rather have that money remain in the pockets of hard-working Langley taxpayers, and let them choose the charities they want to support. Gary La Brie, Langley

Raise best in taxpayers’ hands

Dear Editor, While I commend Township Councillor Steve Ferguson’s intent to donate his travel allowances to charities, why not forego that raise in travel allowance, give it back to the taxpayers, and let them decide for themselves what they would do with their own money in the first place. In fact, if most council members, if not all, according to Coun. Ferguson, will be donating to charities, I believe we taxpayers should be the ones to determine which charities our individual tax dollars go to.

We may have different charities in mind. The fact that the mayor received the Queen’s Jubilee Medal is of no consequence to this issue. My husband, Jim Tallman, also received a QE II Diamond Jubilee Medal for his service to the Immigrant Services Society of B.C., of which there is a new branch office in the City of Langley. Patricia Tallman, Langley

Tax-free money easier to give

Dear Editor, Good on Steve Ferguson. It’s a nice thought, but he has the $340 a month to donate to charity, and I don’t. And I don’t have a lot of time to volunteer, either, as I’m busting my butt to make the money I need to pay for gas (including taxes), car maintenance (including taxes), and the occasional car wash (including taxes) – none tax deductible like his. I applaud the thought, but he should stop trying to make himself out to be saintly. A third of his salary is tax-free, none of mine is. He has a travel allowance, I don’t. Debbie Atkinson, Langley [Note: Fuller versions of these letters and others on similar topics are online at www. langleyadvance.com. Click on Opinion.]

Fort Langley

Boycott shows greater arrogance

Dear Editor, In opposing the Coulter Berry building, Oliver McNiell [Mayor needs to listen to people, Dec. 6 Letters, Langley Advance] states that Mayor Jack Froese, as a business owner, thinks that the building “will bring some much needed vibrancy to the town in the offseason.” He added that Froese’s business is nowhere near Fort Langley, but neglected

to mention that Froese lives in Fort Langley. The main theme of McNiell’s letter is that he believes council should govern by petition: if residents show up with a few pages of signatures opposing a project, council should automatically vote it down. When activists are out soliciting signatures, they rarely, if ever, give both sides of the story, and I suspect they frequently pres-

Odd Thoughts

Sinterklaas misunderstood

Dear Editor, Bob Groeneveld’s opinion [White guy, black slave… racist?, Nov. 27 Odd Thoughts, Langley Advance], is unfortunately not getting the facts straight. The origins of the Sinterklaas/Black Peter tradition had nothing to do with slavery and racism. I find it highly questionable when a newspaper distributes a fantasy story and sells it as fact in the context of controversial issues. The real origin behind the black Peter and Sinterklaas traditions goes back many centuries. Frans Dullemond, via email [Note: A treatise on Sinterklaas’s history is at www.langleyadvance.com. Click on Opinion, or search the writer’s name.]

sure people into signing. There were other surveys that indicated support for the project he opposed. The petition McNiell favours was signed by significantly less than half of Fort Langley residents, even though they had months to gather signatures. Given that the near unanimous support at council, it is difficult to accept McNiell’s statement that Mayor Froese’s arrogance is astonishing. What is astonishing is that there are flyers being distributed urging people to boycott JD Farms. Mayor Froese no longer works at the business. It is operated by his children and their 20 employees. It is reprehensible when protesters attack the children of public servants, just because they don’t get their way. John Cameron, Langley [Note: A fuller version of this letter is online at www. langleyadvance.com. Click on Opinion, or search the writer’s name.]

McLellan Forest

Names obscure greater purpose

Dear Editor, I am a local resident who recently discovered the beauty of the 25 acres called variously McLellan Forest East, Gray Pit Forest, Glen Valley East Forest, and McLellan Park on Thanksgiving Day of this year. Apparently, the Kwantlen First Nation has another name for it: Samaaqua. It doesn’t have an official name, so no wonder there has been confusion in the letters to council and in the media. I highly doubt anyone intended any subterfuge in referring to it as McLellan Park, since that has been one of the local names for the area. We shouldn’t let quibbles over

nomenclature deflect from the main issues. Both jewels of ecologically rich forest should be protected. They are relatively small areas, and there are other ways to raise money for recreation centres, perhaps by selling lands of lesser heritage value. Asking for both is neither greed nor manipulation, but common sense for ourselves and for future generations.

Gay rights

Board moves to aid LGBTQ students Langley’s public school board has created a committee to deal with homosexuality and gender issues. by Heather Colpitts

Three Langley School Board trustees and some senior administration will comprise the district’s new lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) committee. The ad hoc committee includes three trustees, and three senior staff. There’s no set timeline for the committee’s work. “We’ve given them a lot of work to do,” commented Wendy Johnson, the school board chair. “I would say several months minimum.” The committee will report back to the board in the new year.

holding a similar initiative. The Sportsplex’s Fill The Net campaign is off to a slow start. This week, just a few items covered part of the floor inside the net. General manager Bud Pope hopes to see that change. “It’s a little slower than usual,” Pope said. “We’re talking to all our teams in the youth leagues and especially in our roller hockey leagues to bring in items. Hopefully they’ll be bringing stuff in over the next couple of weeks.” Pope said helping out the local food bank is very important to him and the Sportsplex staff. “We want to see everybody get enough to eat,” he said. “There are a lot of people who are less fortunate than us and we like to help them out every year.” Canlan Ice Sports is located at 5700 Langley Bypass and the Langley Sportsplex is at 20165 91A Ave. Both facilities are open seven days a week and donations are accepted every day.

Its Fill The Net campaign started Nov. 15 and runs until New Year’s Day, Jan. 1. As of Tuesday, Nov. 27, there are four cans in the net set up inside the front foyer of the facility. Rodland hopes Langley Twin Rinks’ three user groups – Langley Minor Hockey, Langley Girls Ice Hockey, and Fraser Valley Ringette – will take up the Fill The Net For Hunger challenge. Teams are being challenged to bring in as much food as they can. The team that brings in the most food in pounds will win a pizza party at the Thirsty Penguin, located upstairs from the rinks. “It’s always is a little slow at the beginning,” Rodland said. “Usually in December, we start to see the donations roll in.” North of the freeway, the Langley Sportsplex is

One of the two rinks will be lit up with Christmas lights and decorated with inflatable figures for the food-and-fundraiser. Twin Rinks sales and marketing coordinator Heather Rodland said last year’s event was “pretty well attended.” “We’re hoping that, it being on a Sunday this year, that even more people will show up for it,” Rodland said. “Usually it’s families that attend but

Jays Care clubhouse unveiled …continued from page A4

“This is great, what the Blue Jays are doing,” Lawrie said. “We’re not only Toronto’s team, we’re Canada’s team. I think that’s what the Blue Jays are really pushing for and I feel like this is a grand gesture. This is obviously great for these kids. It

gives them an opportunity to play sports and get involved in some afterschool activities.” The centre was in the works just after Lawrie was acquired by the Blue Jays in a trade for pitcher Shaun Marcum in December 2010.

Modeled after the Blue Jays clubhouse, the project was made possible through a $250,000 Field of Dreams grant from the Foundation. Locally, the Rotary Club of Langley Central contributed $80,000, the largest single donation

the balance of the $80,000 commitment. Meanwhile, an upbeat Lawrie was visibly pleased to be part of the opening. “Obviously it promotes the Blue Jays and it promotes a good cause and this is what it’s all about,” he said. The presence of arguably B.C.’s most recognizable baseball player attracted a crush of television and print media from a variety of outlets. Once he extricated himself from a scrum that followed the ceremonial ribbon cutting, Lawrie reflected on returning to his hometown after a lengthy absence. “It’s hard for me to get home, because of how busy I am,” said Lawrie, who now lives just outside of Phoenix, AZ. and arrived in B.C. Dec. 2. “It’s been about a year since I’ve been back, here. It’s always nice to get home, to the rain. It’s good to be back and be back here and give all these kids an opportunity.” Lawrie’s dad Russ said both Brett and his sister Danielle – a Canadian Olympic softball pitcher who splits her time between Japan and Florida – are home for the holidays. The family patriarch said he is enjoying the banter around the house and simple things like watching TV together. “It’s not very often that my wife and I get the kids home together,” Russ said. “[Brett] is a home boy and to come down here and get an opportunity to do something in his own backyard, that’s where it means the most to him. It’s special when you can do something less than a mile from your house.”

Unique war medals found A pair of stolen medals were given to a late soldier of the First World War.

Who was Private A. Alexander of the Royal Highlanders of Newfoundland? The medals of Private Alexander were found in a vacant apartment in April when the local RCMP were conducting an unrelated investigation. The officers noticed the medals, presumably stolen, along with a bag of coins, all in small denominations, from a variety of British Commonwealth countries. Langley RCMP officers have tried to track down the rightful owners of the medals, without success, said Cpl. Holly Marks, a spokesperson for the detachment. The Star and Victory medals are of note, both were issued to all ranks of the military who saw service during the First World War, said Marks. Because Newfoundland was not part of Canada until after the Second World War, Newfoundlanders fought under the British flag. The back of the Victory medal is engraved with the identification 2374 PT. A. ALEXANDER, R. HIGHRS.

Jordyn Vinnell figured paper flowers would be a good draw. Jordyn Vinnell chose to make paper flowers, because she didn’t think too many of her classmates were making anything that would appeal to girls. “They’re fun to make,” said the Grade 5 student. It’s something that keeps and can be used every day, she said of her product, offered for $2

each. Trevor Moore, also in Grade 5, was offering a wooden block puzzle dubbed the T-Rocks Teaser “T” Puzzle. “My dad helped me with the cutting,” he said. The idea came from his grandparents, and he was hoping to sell some more soon. “I’ve only sold two,” he said, not long after the start of the trade show. His third sale came a few moments later. Krista Jahn had planned ahead, and in October had already settled on a Christmas ornament for her project. She got a $38 loan for materials from her grandma, who had showed her how to make the ornament. With mom and grandma’s help, she crafted 17 Santas, 30 elves, 24 angels and 24 reindeer. Jahn, a Grade 5 student, knew that she’d have to pay back her loan before she saw any profits from her project. If she didn’t sell everything at the craft fair, she’d have to keep selling in the days to come, Jahn said. Once the sales are finished, the students will donate 10 per cent of their earnings to charities. Each class chose three favourite charities to receive the money, Bernier said.

Christmas giving

New Rotary club enticing young business people Store

Roxanne Hooper

rhooper@langleyadvance.com

In an era when joining clubs and finding time to volunteer seems to be on the decline, I was interested to hear there’s a new business-based club starting up in Langley. The Rotary Club, which has traditionally been made up of business people in the community anxious to step up and help others through service, has spawned a new, junior club, if you will. And that group, designed for people between the ages of 17 and 30, is gearing up for the holidays in true Rotary spirit. They’re holding a Christmas party Friday night, to which they’re asking guests to bring new pillows for Wagner Hills home. “They expect 20 to 35 guests wanting to make a difference,” said Langley Central Rotarian Beverlee Rasmussen.

Throughout the month of December, 11 businesses are participating in a Christmas display contest, where members decorate their place of business and collect for the food bank. Pictures of the entries are on the association’s Facebook page, where people can “like” their favourite. The winner will receive an iPad, while voters are entered in to win gift certificates.

LIGHTING UP FOR THE SEASON

Chameleon swaps out science for stage

Growing up in Langley, Heather Doerksen has landed herself several big acting roles of late. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

C

uddled up in her favourite pyjamas, with a cup of tea in hand, Heather Doerksen settled in Sunday night to watch a Christmas movie. But she wasn’t watching any ordinary holiday flick. This movie, Anything But Christmas, featured her as a supporting actress, working alongside one of her alltime movie idols – Christopher Lloyd. The cold, wet weather on the night of the movie’s television premiere drew strong contrast to the 30-degree days of shooting for the film this past June in Kelowna. “We were dressed up in wool sweaters and coats and gloves and scarves, in the middle of a sunny summer day,” recalled Doerksen, a 32-year-old actor who got her start in acting while growing up in Langley. “Between every two-minute take, the makeup artists had to rush in to powder our sweaty faces. That in itself was comical,” she said, recounting how much fun she had making this romantic comedy. Playing the supporting character of Charlene in this movie, Doerksen said the role was much different from most she’s asked to play. “This bubbly, almost cartoon-like Charlene is very enthusiastic and persistent about getting her ex-boyfriend (John played by Sergi di Zio) back when he breaks up with his current girlfriend (Grace, played by Elaine Hendrix). She takes some extreme measures to convince him, culminating in a scene that is a bit of a comedy of errors,” Doerksen said. It turns out her character is not the completely ignorant and unaware character first thought, and Doerksen said she enjoyed watching and helping her character grow. While she said the entire cast got along

In the past year, Langley-raised Heather Doerksen (left) starred in a holiday movie, Anything But Christmas (above), which aired on TV last weekend, and in Ambrosia, (right) which debuted at the Cairo International Film Festival Dec. 4. “so great, and it really was a gem to work on this set,” Doerksen said the highlight of the experience was working with Lloyd – again. “Christopher and I worked on a mini-series in 2009 called Knights of Bloodsteel… so I was excited to act with him again… When I was in a scene with him, it was easy to just watch him do his thing, just sit back and watch – before realizing I better do my job too.” Doerksen – a pretty big Christmas fan in her own right – said this was not her first seasonal movie.

Last year she was involved in the making of Barbie: A Perfect Christmas. Dressed in a spandex jumpsuit covered with white computer-sensitive balls, she provided the physical movements for the character of Christie Clauson, with computer lasers capturing and converting her motion to that of the animated character. “So, [Anything But Christmas] is not technically my first Christmas movie, but I still say it is because you actually see me in this one,” said Doerksen, who has made quite a splash in film, radio, and stage in recent years.

While Anything But Christmas debuted this past weekend, the holiday movie airs again on Dec. 23 and 25. In the meantime, earlier this month was also the international premiere of another of Doerksen’s movies, Ambrosia, at the Cairo International Film Festival. This movie, made for the big screen, positions the Walnut Grove grad as the head of a prestigious fashion design firm in an independent film about an Iranian couple’s struggles after emigrating to Canada. Doerksen’s character, Sarah Lane, takes more than professional interest in the immigrant Leila (played by Miss Universe Canada’s Sahar Biniaz), who has dreams of becoming a fashion designer. Needless to say Leila’s marriage unravels under the pressure of her changing views and values. “Lust, betrayal, innocence, and conflict colour this moving film from Iranian filmmaker Baharak Saeid Monir,” said Doerksen, who attended SFU with the director years ago. “I got a call from her out of the blue, wondering if I would be interested in playing one of her lead characters in her new film… I was flattered she remembered me, and met with her to discuss the script… One of the things I loved about being on the set was the multicultural climate she created. So many languages were being spoken at any given time, from Farsi to French to English.” While Doerksen has landed a few film roles, and will be heading to Los Angeles next July for the premiere of another of her movies, Pacific Rim, which she shot in Toronto for seven months between 2011 and 2012 – she’s also been doing a lot of voice work. “I’m voicing many holiday advertisements. You probably hear me in your car on the way to work,” she said, noting she’s also been on stage recently performing in a murder mystery called A Tomb With A View. • More online at www.langleyadvance.com

Art in Found Spaces

Spotlight shines on critiqued artwork Langley Art Critiques members exhibit at the City library through to Jan. 31.

A

new exhibit was unveiled this week at Langley City hall showcasing the talents of several local artists and the work they’ve accomplished as part of the Langley Art Critique group. Since 2005, a local group of artists has been meeting the last Monday of the month at the City library (between 7 and 9 p.m.) to have their work evaluated by well-respected art professionals. Well, many of the artists who have participated in this monthly group, have improved their techniques, learned more about composition and style, and gained a better understanding of art in general. Now, having applied those new skills to their art, they’re prepared to share their finished works with the world. The show features a variety of mediums capturing a wide range of subject matter, and is presented by the Langley Arts Council as part of its ongoing Art in Found Spaces initiative. The show will remain on display in the City hall foyer until Jan. 31, at 20399 Douglas Cres. And for more information about the exhibit or critique group, people can contact the arts council at 604-530-3855.

Langley Centennial Museum

Museum revives vaudeville in the new year Entertainers are needed to help recapture an art form of days gone by. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

T

he hunt is on for entertainers who can help revive vaudeville in Langley – at least for

one day. Society is often taught about the invention of movies and the silent film era. But before the advent of television and radio, between 1870 and roughly 1920s, vaudeville was the most popular form of entertainment in North America. But today, little is known of the vaudevillian art form and Langley Centennial Museum staff plan to rectify that early in the new year, explained museum curator Jane Lemke. The museum, located on King Street in Fort Langley, will be showcasing an exhibit next month called Voices of the Town: Vaudeville in Canada. The lesson doesn’t end with the exhibition, Lemke explained. They’ve decided to also host a “theatre extravaganza” on Saturday, Feb. 23 offering people a real sampling of vaudeville. While the event is a few

The museum is seeking submissions from musicians, performers, and actors in the form of CD/DVDs from those who wish to participate in this unique show, Lemke said. Family-oriented, vaudevill featured fast-paced variety sketches, comedy routines, songs, dance, acrobatics, amazing feats and unbelievable stunts, on stages across this country. Some of Hollywood’s greatest early actors began their careers

on the vaudeville stage – Charlie Chaplin, the Marx Brothers, and Canadians Marie Dressler and Mary Pickford, to name a few. “A visit to one of the opulent vaudeville theatres was often as exciting as the performances themselves,” Lemke said. “Not only was vaudeville entertaining but it created a family-friendly environment with clean jokes and happy storylines. Langley has always had an active arts community so providing a historical look at this artistic period of history only seemed like a natural fit!”

She describes the exhibit as a “wonderful opportunity” to introduce Langley to an era of history that is often unknown. But the event is intended to recapture the spirit of the Roaring ‘20s when vaudeville was in its heyday. “A diverse bill of acts will entertain one and all – something for everyone. Attendees are encouraged to dress-up and enter an age when an evening at the theatre was a family experience to celebrate,” she said. Any entertainers interested in participating can find applications online at www.langleymuseum.org. All submissions must be in by 4:30 p.m. on Dec. 20. All submissions will be adjudicated by a selection committee and participants will be informed of the committee’s decision before Jan. 8. The selection committee will choose acts based on the quality of performance, originality, and historical suitability. Selected acts will be compensated at a small performance fee per set plus a percentage of profits based on ticket sales. In order to be eligible, performance sets must be between 15-20 minutes, have minimal set up and take down, and be family friendly.

aren’t especially suitable where babies or toddlers run free and unsupervised. Berries tend to drop, and holly berries are poisonous. Plants which contribute to wreaths and Christmas front door vases include the annual lunaria and the perennial lunaria (Lunaria redeviva). The annual lunaria has round silver pods, while the perennial form has silver lance-shaped pods. The fat, orange pods of Chinese lanterns are another seasonal brightener. None of those three beautiful plants are noted for good behaviour in the garden. Chinese lantern plants are rabid root-runners, and the annual and perennial lunarias self-seed far and wide. Centrepieces can be large and elaborate, or as simple as cedar fronds centred with a Christmas figure. Cedar drapes beautifully, but it does dry out quickly and needs misting two or three times daily. It’s worth remembering that, though greens in Christmas centerpieces look beautiful with candles, evergreens can be huge fire hazards when flame is near. Larger centerpieces can be stablilized with florist foam or based in a shallow vase. I prefer vases, because when extra moisture is available, greenery lasts longer and berries stay on better.

OPEN HOUSES WEEKEND OF DECEMBER 15 & 16

Madeleine McTaggart, via email our Christmas cactus is suffering from low humidity in your house and the buds fall because they dry out. If you have a cooler room to put it in and can mist it once a day with plain water the buds will hold better. Once your Christmas cactus begins flowering, you can bring it into a warmer area where you should mist it twice a day to give it extra humidity. If the buds still fall, increase the number of times you do misting. If you don’t have a cooler room for your plant, just do extra misting from the outset. Putting a Christmas cactus by an open window also helps because outside air is much more humid than warm house air.

“I don’t even want to think about fighting right now. I’m just happy to be able to rest and eat what I want to eat,” Pucek said Tuesday, three days after her title victory. “I also know I have a long way to go. I have the tools to be [one of the best]. I just have to keep working on my confidence. My confidence is the most important thing.” Pucek wasn’t the only woman from Langley on the card. For Kyla McKenzie, it was her first amateur boxing match and she was in tough against Action Boxing’s Kate Robinson. The bout was very competitive and close, with the split decision going McKenzie’s way. Alisah McPhee made her pro debut. McPhee has never lost an amateur bout, however she was facing Jaime Ward, the most accomplished amateur boxer in B.C. who sported a 1-0-0 mark as a pro. McPhee scaled in at 123 pounds and Ward was slightly heavier at 128 pounds, and was visibly bigger and stronger. “The bout was close, however it was McPhee’s speed and hard work that got her the close split decision,” Allison noted.

bind up in her stomach. “I was nervous, but it’s a good thing to be nervous,” Pucek said. “If you’re not nervous, then you’re not really in the right head space. I did feel probably more nervous because I was at home. For some reason, more pressure, I guess.” The bout behind her, Pucek is taking a brief hiatus from the squared circle.

Junior A hockey

Rivermen ventilated by Vees, edged by Smokies Langley trailed 5-0 after 40 minutes against Penticton, but won the third period. by Brandon Astle and Troy Landreville

Contributor

The Langley Rivermen knew they were going to have their hands full walking into the South Okanagan Events Centre on Saturday night. They were not only going up against the defending national junior A hockey champions, but the top team in the entire B.C. Hockey League in the form of the Penticton Vees. The Vees showed why they were the league’s top team with a convincing 5-1 win over the ’Men. Penticton improved to 20-7-03 while the Rivermen, who lost their second straight game and eighth in their last 10 outings, dropped to 10-13-0-5. “In the first period we played pretty well,” said defenceman Logan Smith, the Rivermen captain. “We controlled the game the first five minutes. It’s hard to go into Penticton’s barn knowing they are the defending national champions.” After good back-and-forth play for the opening five minutes, the Vees got on the board first, courtesy of Wade Murphy. The Victoria native has been a

handful for the Rivermen to contain in his career, as he put up 15 points in five games against Langley last year. Less than eight minutes later the Vees scored two more times to close out the period with goals from Brock Balson and Cody DePourcq. Rivermen goaltender James Barr got his sixth straight start and gave up three goals on 10 shots in the first period. Vees’ backup Nic Renyard was the goaltender for the home team and stopped all nine shots he saw. The Vees continued to pour it on in the second period, scoring twice in 20 seconds with goals from Jedd Soleway and Louie Nanne. After Soleway’s tally Barr was pulled from the game in favor of Penticton native Darren Hogg. The Vees would take a commanding 5-0 lead into the third frame and had a 21-6 shot advantage in the middle period. The Rivermen had a very good final period, scoring the only goal off the stick of Viktor Dombrovskiy. The 16-yearold skater pounced on a loose rebound from an Evan Anderson blast and fired home his second of the year. That would be it for the ’Men as they would lose their second game in a row. Soleway and Murphy combined for six points and earned first and second star honours.

The Langley Rivermen, including captain Logan Smith and assistant captain Mitch McLain, are urging fans to bring teddy bears to Friday’s home game against the Coquitlam Express at the Langley Events Centre. On Teddy Bear Toss night, fans will get the opportunity to throw the stuffed toys onto the ice after the ’Men score their first goal. The Rivermen will deliver them to children staying at Langley Memorial Hospital over the holidays. Troy Landreville/Langley Advance

Renyard was the third star, facing 26 shots. “That was a character building game for us in a sense that we had to learn that it didn’t matter what the score was, we had to fight to the very end,” Smith said. Trail Smoke Eaters 6, Rivermen 5 (double OT) A double overtime loss to the Smoke Eaters Friday at the Cominco Arena was a tough pill to swallow for the Rivermen. It wasn’t losing the point so much as the fact that the Rivermen led 3-0 at one point of the second period and carried a 4-2 lead into the third frame.

The Smoke Eaters stormed back, outscoring the Rivermen 3-1 during the latter stages to tie the game before potting the double overtime winner. “It’s disappointing in a sense that we didn’t get the points, but right now we have to look beyond what the score tells us and we have to take away the positives of the game,” Smith said. “It’s hard on the road, it really is. Anybody will tell you four hours on the bus is not friendly. It sucks, but it’s not an excuse.” Coming into the game, the Smokies were billed as a very entertaining squad and they put

on quite the third-period show for their fans. Barr received his fourth straight start in goal, while Lyndon Stanwood got the call for Trail. The teams traded momentum through the first 10 minutes of the first period before Langley opened the scoring on a powerplay goal from Mark Whiteley. After a quick face off win, Whiteley spotted traffic in front of Stanwood. He fired a shot between the legs of the Trail netminder, who did not see the shot coming at all.

The Canadian Lacrosse Association will levy heavy punishment to players who engage in fisticuffs.

by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

The Canadian Lacrosse Association (CLA) and its board of directors are doing everything in their power to put the kibosh on fighting. The CLA has approved changes in its rule book that will see, among other things, combatants given not only a major penalty but also a game misconduct if they engage in fisticuffs. How this week’s ruling will affect the Western Lacrosse Association and its teams – including the defending WLA champion Langley Thunder – is yet to be determined. WLA commissioner Casey Cook said the league’s board of governors is having a meeting today (Thursday, Dec. 13) to specifically deal with the ruling and its implications. “We will be able to able to speak more to the issue after the governors have dealt with it,” Cook said. “It certainly has implications for the WLA and we’re going to have to see what our response to that particular issue is.” A task force was established this past spring to examine fighting in lacrosse. The task force reported back to the CLA’s board of directors with recommendations in the fall, at the annual general meeting. As a result of the recommendations, the CLA board has approved changes to Rule 45 in the Box Lacrosse Rule and Situation Handbook.

Here’s what you need to know about the rule change – the approved changes are in bold. Rule 45 – Fighting (a) A major penalty and game misconduct penalty shall be assessed to any player/goalkeeper who fights. A goalkeeper penalty shall be served by a player who was on the floor at the time of the infraction. The major penalty must be served in its duration. (b) If there is an instigator or clear aggressor in a fight, a major penalty and a game misconduct plus any other penalties shall be assessed to the offending player(s). Where an instigator or clear aggressor penalty is assessed the nonoffending player shall not receive a game misconduct under 45 (a). The rule change will come into effect in the 2013 lacrosse season. So what does this mean? After lengthy discussion and revisions the updated rule enforces that fighting is not tolerated. If an athlete, at any level, takes part in a fight, they will be removed from the game. “The CLA board of directors took a stance today and we are positive that others will follow. The rule change allows our athletes to showcase the sport that we all love and keeps the focus on the aspects that make our sport so great – speed, athleticism, and skill. Lacrosse is the quickest game on two feet, played by some of the most passionate and athletic participants in any sport,” CLA president Joey Harris said. “The stance that our board took against fighting in our sport holds true to the values of Canadian lacrosse and the CLA.”

WOODBINE TOWNHOUSES 9252 Hazel St. Chilliwack, BC Move-In Incentive! Our Gated 5 acre Complex is Quiet and Family-Oriented!

Cancer June 21-July 22: This is your last week of drudgery. Tackle all chores, get them out of the way, because several new opportunities and friendship prospects will arise Friday into late January. You’ll want your energy and time to be free for these. Sunday/Monday feature investments, debt, large finances, sexual urges, subconscious desires, health diagnosis and lifestyle decisions. Midweek emphasizes far travel, wisdom, learning, gentle love. It also brings splendid career/work luck and inspiration (Wednesday). More emphasis on your career, community status, Thursday/Friday. Saturday, happiness! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: This is your last week of “heavy romance” or deep creativity, so don’t waste it. (By “heavy,” I mean deep or significant.) Sunday/Monday bring partnership prospects, exciting meetings, new horizons, opportunities – and potential opposition, even enmity. You might be deceiving yourself about the chances of sex with someone very attractive. Be aware, astute. Midweek emphasizes sex, intimacy, large finances, changes and commitment. True love’s possible – you might even agree to wed. Wisdom, a mellow mood, culture, rituals, far travel, learning – and love – flow Thursday/Friday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: It’s the last week of emphasis on your home, on security, real estate, kids/parents, retirement, etc. Though this zone begins to fade now in terms of big projects, demands and burdens, it now begins to bless you with sweet results and affection, especially Wednesday. However, don’t try to force “home delights” on a partner or prospective mate Sunday. (This day and Monday are for chores: eat and dress sensibly.) Midweek brings exciting meetings, new opportunities. Thursday to Saturday feature sexual urges, financial luck. Friday begins a month of romance, risk and pleasure.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: This week starts with hope – perhaps too much hope, as your logic weakens in the face of fond feelings or fond fantasies. Still, enjoy the friendship, popularity and happiness Sunday/Monday. By Monday eve, retreat to plan, contemplate and rest. You might experience a philosophical difference with someone, or a snag in dealing with government or institutions Tuesday, but Wednesday holds a sparkling love attraction, or a smooth breakthrough in legal, educational or travel zones. Your energy and charisma come roaring back Thursday into Saturday morning – start something ambitious. Taurus April 20-May 20: Focus on career, business, your ambitions and prestige relationships Sunday/ Monday. Though this is a quiet, deep month, involving big decisions in lifestyle, finances and intimacy, lighter notes come midweek, as entertainment, popularity, friends and optimism buoy your spirits. Thursday through Saturday morning, though, seek solitude and quiet; rest, contemplate and plan. This interval might bring a new, lucky idea involving your career, government or head office (or some authority) and the fruits of research, detective work. An investment or financial manoeuvre might be involved. Gemini May 21-June 20: This is your last week of exciting meetings, new opportunities and new horizons (perhaps relocation). Take advantage – make contacts, travel, call, make your bid. You feel wise and loving Sunday/Monday – but don’t blend a love relationship (even worse, a secret or collusive link) with your ambitions/career. By Monday night through Wednesday your actions and reputation will be scrutinized by higher-ups: if you pass, success follows. Be cautious to Tuesday noon, then pursue your goals. You could meet a new love Wednesday. Thursday/Friday bring light romance, social joy and new hopes.

Dec. 16 - Dec. 22, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The fast pace of paperwork, travel, errands and calls continues – until Friday, when a month of deeper, domestic concerns will begin. Sunday/Monday are romantic – take a risk, collect your reward. Applies in love, and money too. But beware misunderstanding the import of a remark or message about work or health-related drugs. DON’T buy machinery. Midweek brings many chores (tackle them) – and a possible heart-thumping development in love. You might meet a new mate, or “rediscover” one. Thursday/Friday emphasize cooperation, opportunities, barriers and enmity – pick the positive. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Continue to chase money or collect possessions. Friday begins a month that won’t contain the same solidity of reward – so go all out before that day. Sunday/Monday feature home, security, foundations. Don’t let a love of money (or possessiveness) interfere with a slowly blossoming romance or creative project. Midweek emphasizes romance, adventure, risk, self-expression, love, teaching, beauty, pleasure and creativity – but it also offers “sweet luck” (Wednesday) in work/money. (In some cases, sudden love.) Tackle chores Thursday/ Friday. Saturday brings money opportunity. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness remain high. Remain focused on big, important projects, people, relationships. Let the small, the details, paperwork, etc., wait until February – but tackle the most pressing of these Sunday/ Monday. In past weeks you’ve attracted attention (don’t blame me if you’ve hidden from it). Now to Jan. 7 you radiate a subtle charm that can turn friends into lovers, competitors into friends. Remember, until June/12 you have to be the chaser in love and money (if you want luck). Home, midweek. Romance, creativity Thursday/Friday – risk it!

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Stay quiet, restful, contemplative until Friday – then one of the best months of your year begins. Until then, plan nearfuture actions/projects.Chase money Sunday/Monday. A sensual attraction might lure you, but deception or illusion can make you uncertain of your footing, or bring an element of gossip or “sneaking around.” Midweek brings errands, casual friends, paperwork (and newspapers) – drive carefully, as you’re a bit weary. Head home Thursday/Friday – Thursday for rest, Friday for getting ready to launch. Saturday your energy rises: chase romance or grab an opportunity. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Enjoy your social life while you can – Friday brings a month of quietude, rest and recuperation, thinking and planning. But until then, the social delights continue! Your energy and charisma draw others Sunday/Monday: start things. But shop only carefully: (mild) deception invades money matters. Midweek, chase money, pursue new clients, etc. Buy electrical, auto or computer items afternoonTuesday to 2 p.m.(PST)Wednesday.Siblings, casual friends, trips, calls, visits, news, errands and paperwork fill Thursday/Friday. Friendship might turn to romance. Home, rest, Saturday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Remain ambitious. Put your best self forward for bosses, parents, other VIPs – they will favour you now to early January. Be restful, quiet, contemplate and plan, Sunday/Monday. A parent or child might do you a favour – or argue. Your energy and magnetism rise nicely midweek – be bold, see and be seen, ask favours, start projects and relationships (before 2:30 p.m. Wednesday). Your money luck rises briefly Thursday/Friday. Avoid engine/electronic/computer purchases Thursday afternoon. Friday begins a month of social delights, flirtations, wish fulfillment and optimism! timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808

Opinion

Langley gets little from development dealing

Dear Editor, Shockingly, we have lost Willoughby to development in just two years. Where are the quiet green-treed public parks, jogging trails, and picnic areas with swings and playgrounds for our children? Where are the large, wooded public parks in the Willoughby area, similar to Surrey’s Bear Creek Park or Tynehead Regional Park? All the thoroughfares in Willoughby, such as 200th and 208th Streets, are now jam packed with cars all day long. Dense condo and house building is racing up and down 208th and 200 Street. It is packed with construction of thousands of new homes, shopping malls, and lots of blacktop, creating more garbage and air pollution. Green spaces are needed for people to enjoy nature, for birds, and small animals. Recent medical studies have shown that wandering down a nature trail outside into the woods is beneficial and healing to humans. Also, we need trees to filter out the impurities in the air, protecting our respiratory organs. The current Township mayor and council seem to be only catering to the developers and dollars. Ras Gosse, Langley

Dear Editor, Follow the money, they say. Langley Township recently approved the Forewest project in Willoughby, despite almost universal condemnation from the Willoughby community. Almost 11 acres was bought by the Abbotsford developer for just over $6 million in 2006. Of the 11 acres, eight could be developed and would have been worth perhaps $1 million per acre, once approved. But fortuitously, less than a year later, the Township re-designated the property, along with others on 200th Street, for high density. Designated density more than quadrupled overnight, from 12 per acre to more than 50. Land that was worth $1 million per acre immediately became worth much more. Even a very conservative estimate of 50 per cent land appreciation means that the eight acres had an overnight gain of $4 million.

[Note: A fuller version of this letter is online at www.langleyadvance.com. Click on Opinion, or search the writer’s name.]

What did Langley get out of this? As far as we can tell, the Township demanded nothing more than what it would have got at the lower density. The argument that development will expand the tax base has never made any sense, since taxes only pay for ongoing expenses. If there was a benefit to expanding the tax base, why do our taxes go up so much every year? Not all communities let these windfall profits happen without making sure the taxpayer also benefits. Vancouver demands that developers make contributions to the community (in the form of park space, meeting spaces and plazas, public art, etc.) totaling 75 per cent of the windfall profit. We don’t know what the Township’s excuses are for not going this route, since they won’t let us see the recent taxpayer-funded study on the topic. Let’s assume that TOL did negotiate 75 per cent of the very conservatively

estimated $4 million that Forewest has been handed. That would be $3 million – a familiar figure. That is the same amount the Township is trying to extract from its own citizens to prevent sale and likely destruction of a provincially important wilderness area at Gray’s Pit. The Township owns the land, but claims to be so short of money, it has to be sold. So in one of the more bizarre moves ever, the Township is putting the squeeze on its own citizens. What is wrong with this picture? The Township is selling off the heritage of the Langley taxpayer, and filling the pockets of the developers. This must change. Doug McFee, Langley
