A few inches of snow caused the usual mild traffic chaos around Langley and the rest of the Lower Mainland on Wednesday morning. After Langley was largely missed by Tuesday’s snowfall, the white stuff began falling early Wednesday morning and continued to mid-day before turning to rain.

Community rallies behind fire victim Aldergrove came together to help a man at risk of being homeless just before Christmas. by Matthew Claxton

In the City, fire chief Rory Thompson said things were quiet, with no reported serious crashes Wednesday morning. Credo Christian, Langley Christian, and Fraser Valley Adventist Academy all closed their campuses due to snow on Wednesday, but public schools and Langley Montessori remained open. The cold, wet, and stormy weather prompted an opening of the emergency shelter at the Salvation Army’s Gateway of Hope. The shelter opens as an addition to existing beds for Langley’s homeless population. Temperatures were expected to warm up slightly in Metro Vancouver over the next few days, with rain through Christmas, according to Environment Canada.

The snow caused some problems for the morning commute, although major routes were reported to be clear or slushy for the most part. In Langley Township, assistant fire chief Rob Clausen said there had been a number of incidents linked to the snow. “We’re busy right now,” he said at 9:30 a.m. Between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m., firefighters in the Township responded to eight calls, five of them motor vehicle accidents. Most of the accidents seemed to be fender benders and cars sliding off the slick roads, but Clausen wasn’t aware of any serious injuries. The crews weren’t using the jaws of life to pry anyone free, he said.

OPERATION RED NOSE Let Rudy Take the Wheel

Greg Laing, unemployed and looking for work, had been living in a camper on his pickup, parked on a lot in downtown Aldergrove. On the morning of Dec. 12, his dog Jasper bumped a candle while Laing was out getting water for coffee. By the time he came back, his camper was smouldering. Laing ran into the camper and groped for Jasper in the smoke, pulling the black Lab to safety.

A bridge too icy

Chunks of falling ice slammed into cars on the Port Mann Bridge and abruptly re-routed the commute for thousands of Lower Mainland residents Wednesday. Reports of falling ice shattering windshields and tearing off car mirrors began flooding social media sites such as Twitter just after 1 p.m. Multiple drivers posted cellphone photos of the damage. At least one driver was injured and taken to hospital by ambulance. • More online

Walkers on way to store find injured man Police are looking into a stabbing after a man was found badly injured in Brookswood. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A man was rushed to hospital Wednesday morning after he was found on a suburban Langley street suffering from stab wounds.

Just before 6 a.m. on Dec. 19, two young men walking to a convenience store in Brookswood came across an injured man in the vicinity of 37th Avenue and 200th Street. The victim asked for help, and the young men called emergency services. The victim is now in hospital recovering from his serious injuries. The police aren’t sure where he was attacked or by whom. “The victim is not cooperating, and at

this point is also medicated,” said Cpl. Holly Marks, a spokesperson for the Langley RCMP. The victim is known to police, Marks said. The Serious Crime section at the local detachment is investigating. This is the second knife attack this month in Langley. On Dec. 7 police investigated after an apparent knife fight in Aldergrove that left three people with superficial wounds.

Garbage goes green for the City Single family homes in Langley City are being asked to sort out their kitchen waste for composting.

Take your time getting started We don’t usually get such substantial amounts of snow that it should be a serious problem. But we do get a bit of snow sometimes… and it always seems to turn out to be a problem, at least for some folks – perhaps precisely because it’s relatively rare for the ground to turn white out here on the “Wet Coast.” This could turn out to be one of those winters when we discover what it’s like to live in much of the rest of Canada. So the next time you get in your car and see a little of the white stuff falling from the sky, try to think about your safety and the safety of those with whom you are planning to share the roads and highways. Call it “snow etiquette,” if you will. Let’s start with starting your car: if you feel there’s enough snow on the ground to cause a problem with driving, then don’t start your car if you don’t have to. Also, don’t turn that key if your car is not equipped with tires appropriate to the road conditions. Ordinary summer tires, for example, are not appropriate – in fact, are downright dangerous – for driving in snowy conditions. And unless you are starting from inside the garage, you’ll need to sweep the snow off your car – not just off the windshield, but off every window, so you can see everything you’re supposed to be able to see while you’re driving. That means clearing the rear window, as well as all the side windows. Don’t just make sure you can see – make sure you can be seen: clean your headlights, tail lights, and signal lights. When you are ready to turn that key and start your engine, take it easy. Snow and speed don’t mix well. Finally, watch out for the other guy – not everyone is as careful as you are, and in snow, you have even less control than usual over how other people’s driving behaviour could impact you. – B.G.

Christmas

Meaning given, not received

Dear Editor, As Christmas approaches and we are all stressed about at what gifts to buy, we are forgetting the true meaning of Christmas. Sure, it’s nice to get gifts and money and all the materialistic things. But we are forgetting that Christmas isn’t about the presents or the tree or the snow. It is about spending time together, with friends and family, and giving to those who are less fortunate. We are becoming more selfish.

This Christmas, think about those less fortunate, and give. Give love and your time to friends, family, and those who don’t have anyone. You may volunteer at your local food kitchen or shelter. If you don’t have time for that, give some food or clothes to your local collection bank. Remember, materialistic things don’t last forever, love and kindness do. Steven Lofgren, Langley

Environment

Township tree policy laughable

Dear Editor, Langley Township residents need to stand up and voice their opinion regarding the disgraceful administration of development permits in areas that support large and diverse non-human populations. The tree-replacement policy is a sad joke. A mature stand of trees is something that cannot be replaced with street trees planted in a row along a sidewalk. Most of the street trees

have life-spans of less than 10 years, if they make it past the first stage of establishment. These trees are non-native species planted in a monocultural line-up providing none of the life giving bene-

fits of the mature stand they were planted to replace. The soils are scraped and trucked off, including all the soil microorganisms necessary for plant health and proper nutrient cycling. Celeste Paley, Langley

Animal welfare

Paws traded for shark fins

Dear Editor, I would like to take this opportunity to announce my new restaurant, Scott’s Bear Paw Soup Emporium. The recent court decision to strike down the shark fin soup bylaw in Toronto has opened the door for me to fulfill my lifelong dream of serving my ancestors’ traditional recipe of bear paw soup locally. I will be sourcing bear paws that have been removed in the traditional way, while the bears are still fully conscious. Then the animals will be allowed to die as nature had intended, consumed by other predators or simply from blood loss over one or two hours. The texture that the paws give the soup is amazing, and will allow you to overlook the fact that they in no way add any flavour to the broth. Bowls of soup will start at $50, but the soup coming from the more rare (endangered) species will start at $150, increasing as it becomes more and more difficult to find certain species, for some strange reason. Once again, I would like to thank the people fighting the shark fin soup ban so I can keep my own traditions alive. Scott’s Bear Paw Soup Emporium

Are bulldozers clearing out?

Dear Editor, As the Township announced in September a Brookswood/ Fernridge Community Plan workshop, it seems the developers have decided it’s time to start clear-cutting and paving the Brookswood/Fernridge area. I hope it means that, as the bulldozers and dump trucks start making their way there, the destruction of Willoughby will soon come to a stop. Brian Johnson, Willoughby

Council banishes democracy

Dear Editor, Within democratic societies, the law is most often the means by which the truth or an opinion can be brought forward by citizens. When one perceives that the actions of an elected council may be wrong, for whatever reason, the laws permitting freedom of speech are firmly entrenched and utilized. Paradoxically, the banning of Mr. Jacob De Raadt, a citizen of Langley, from attending and speaking at public hearings in Langley [Gadfly banned from talking to council, Dec. 6, Langley Advance], is a perversion of the law and the entire democratic process. Jacob De Raadt has made a number of council decisions look inadequate, unfair, and ill-conceived. With our council, we need more Jacob de Raadts, not less.

Missing steers go home on range Laundry combusts

Git along, little doggie! Two missing steers have been rounded up in rural Langley. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

The two missing steers of South Langley have been rounded up. On Dec. 10, Brandon Koch, a 14year-old 4-H member, fed his two 700-pound steers as normal and went to bed at his family’s home near 230th Street and 30th Avenue. The next morning, the barn door was open and the animals were gone, said his mother Kristina. The Langley Advance reported on the puzzling search for the large animals – which the family thought might have escaped, but which might have been stolen [Cattle go missing, Dec. 13]. Thanks to a tip from a friend, the two animals were found Thursday, not far from their home. In fact, they

The two missing steers are a belted Galloway and a black angus. were about five minutes’ walk away, said Kristina, but they had managed to conceal themselves from the road. “They were behind two or three fences in a field, I don’t know how they got there,” Kristina said. After several days away from their barn, the cattle were a little tense, Kristina said, but the Angus was quickly rounded up after a short

chase down 232nd Street left it cornered. The other steer, a belted Galloway, was a bit wilier. It started jumping fences, ran down 232nd Street, and then through three yards. Animal control staff from the Langley Animal Protection Society (LAPS), an RCMP officer with a rifle, and a veterinarian all came out to help capture the last steer. After it was tranquilized by the vet, the steer was finally hauled back home. “They seem to be fine,” said Kristina. It’s actually not uncommon for cows and other large farm animals to briefly escape, or in some cases be stolen in Langley and the rural areas of the Fraser Valley. LAPS, the RCMP, and local firefighters have all helped with large animal rescues and roundups in the past, and some cattle manage to elude capture repeatedly, running across highways or hiding in wooded areas.

A cleaning service suffered a spontaneous fire on Friday morning in Walnut Grove. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A small fire in Walnut Grove on Friday morning appears to have been a case of spontaneous combustion. Fortunately, it wasn’t of the human variety. Assistant Langley Township fire chief Rob Clausen said the fire broke out in a commercial laundry business on 92A Avenue in the industrial area of northwest Langley. The building washes items like rags and mop heads for janitorial services. A pile of rags in one bin was apparently not fully dry, and burst into flame spontaneously. “It was basically confined to the plastic bin,” said Clausen. The fire was largely doused by on-site sprinklers, which prevented it from spreading. The fire did minimal damage to the building, Clausen said. Chemicals on the rags are believed to have been the cause of the spontaneous combustion.

Determination

Brain injury helped dog lover realize her dream Kira M’Lot blends her entrepreneurial spirit and passion for pets into one. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

Kennel doors are expected to swing open today on a halfmillion-dollar facility in South Langley that some didn’t believe could happen. After years of dreaming, months of construction, and weeks of free labour from friends and family, a nine-acre farm bumped up against the U.S. border has finally be transformed into a multi-purpose animal daycare/boarding and sports facility called A Dog’s Life K9 Centre. And it’s all being brought together by a woman whose determination and will allowed her to triumph over a childhood brain injury. Despite the skepticism of naysayers and headaches and vertigo that have plagued Kira M’Lot since age eight, the 24-year-old Langley trainer has found what she calls her true calling in life – working with animals.

And finally armed with the settlement money from a fall that changed the course of her life 16 years ago, she’s now pursuing her dream. M’Lot was at a wedding in New Westminster at the age of eight when the accident occurred. She was helping send another kid out onto a custom zipline when she was pulled off the stand herself. She fell 14 feet to the ground below. She suffered a grand mal seizure and following surgery spent the next year on heavy medications suffering double vision and multiple related health issues. Nightmares, headaches, and vertigo continue to this day. Doctors even attribute her diminished comprehension abilities to the fall, which quashed any scholastic hopes and even her original career aspirations as a kinesiologist. Always active in sports – such as skating and kayaking – the Mountain Secondary graduate realized soon after completing Grade 12 that her future must involve more of a hands-on job. Animals – which had through high school been her stress release – suddenly opened up a

It is a dog and cat facility, with space for canine training and sports. potential career option. Through much of her senior years in high school, she would visit the Langley Animal Protection Society shelter on weekends to walk or run dogs. It was during one such walk that she suddenly connected with a behaviourly challenged German shepherd named Duska. That connection not only changed things for Duska, but for M’Lot.

“It was one of those day… seeing that change in the dog.” Soon after, she started working at a kennel in Surrey and even worked for a short time at LAPS before taking a dog training apprenticeship program. During that six-month course, which is when she bought her golden retriever Tayah – her faithful companion and mascot of her new shelter – she launched

what would be her new-found career. After working a year for a Burnaby dog daycare, she leased a space in Abbotsford and opened her own business that now employs four part-time people. This spring, after three years of leasing, she began hunting for permanent digs.

And just a week before the scheduled opening of her new centre, M’Lot showed off the facilities offering a tour inside and out, of the 7,200-square-foot building. The centre comes complete with radiant heated floors and 20 temperature sensitive dog kennels for boarding and daycare, a huge cat room with eight cat condos, grooming facilities, isolation rooms for sick animals, a retail centre, training rooms, outdoor runs, and a large sport field ideal for dog sports such as agility, obedience, tunneling, and herding. “I want it to be clean, dry, warm, and I want it to feel like a home. I don’t want dogs to be put in a dark smelly hole,” she said. The entire property is set up for dogs, M’Lot added, noting she took over a farm that had previously been used for training German shepherds. While she fosters dogs, the centre will not be used for adoption or breeding. Almost giddy with excitement about the impending opening, she said through all of the ups and downs that have plagued her recovery, she has continued to work hard for what she believes in and finds it almost surreal to see it coming to fruition. “My whole goal in my life is working with dogs to create a better relationship between people and their family pets,” she said, walking through the Zero Avenue complex. “I feel great for what I’ve accomplished… and I love what I’m doing now… The moral of my life is that no matter what life serves up, if you believe it, you can achieve it. Just look at me.”

Santa goes green

Most residents of Langley will be visiting Willowbrook Shopping Centre this holiday season for some inevitable Christmas shopping. But I have to take my hat off to the mall for rolling out a neat green initiative for the holidays. Until Sunday, Dec. 23, parents and children alike can give a gift to the environment by recycling old, used electronic toys. Not only is toy recycling smart, it’s a great way of making space for new gifts from Santa (and others) – or so I’m telling myself and my granddaughter – whose collection of toys at our house is growing as rapidly as she is. And according to the elves at the mall, this is also a sure-fire way to make sure people get on Santa’s nice list. Many different types of toys are being accepted, including plush textiles with electronics, metal or hard plastic toys with electronics, remote control vehicles, ride on vehicles, handheld game devices, and the list goes on. Every electronic toy will be dismantled, the components sorted, and some of the pieces – we’re told – will be made into new items. If you have some electronic toys you need to get rid of, act fast and get them down to Willowbrook. There’s a green recycling barrel at Santa’s Court.

Seniors and centre showcased in Holiday Spin

A Christmas movie that debuts Friday will feature multiple scenes shot at the Langley Seniors’ Resource Centre. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

Supporting actress Karen Olivo dances with Karate Kid star Ralph Macchio in the new Christmas movie airing this weekend on CTV called Holiday Spin. In the meantime, Garrett Clayton plays Blake and Allie Bertram (inset) plays Pia in the dance movie where the two very different athletes become love interests.

I

n the heat of summer, the sight of Langley’s seniors centre decked out in Christmas decorations may have struck some with fear they were experiencing the onset of Alzheimer’s. Well, that odd sight made a little more sense for all when it was realized that veteran filmmaker Christian Bruyère was in town shooting a Christmas dance movie called Holiday Spin. Then, after almost four weeks of filming (four days of which were spent at the Langley Seniors Resource Centre on 51B Avenue), and even more time editing, the holiday dance movie is set to air on CTV this week – a more appropriate time, weatherwise, given the arrival of the first real snow of the season. “They drew a lot of attention when the exterior of the [seniors centre] was decked out for Christmas,” said movie photographer Anne Cronin. “As a Los Angeles resident, I was very impressed at how friendly and helpful the Langley people were... nice change from L.A.,” Cronin added. This film was shot entirely in Langley and Abbotsford, with two days of set up and two days (7 a.m. to midnight each day) of filming at the seniors centre, explained LSRS executive director Barb Stack. “In all, it was an excellent experience for everyone,” she told the Langley Advance. “Of course, it helps that we get paid and that our members are so understanding when their programs get displaced for a day or two.” But as Stack explained, the rewards were plentiful. The financial compensation for using the

Anne Cronin photo

facility, while not “handsome” was appreciated. “The funds have gone to pay for some painting and chair rails in the hall. Also general operations of the society,” Stack said. Much of the filming took place in the Sharon Birnie Hall, which was transformed into the dance hall for the movie’s competition. “They also filmed the hospital scene in our meeting room and a Christmas tree scene behind our building,” she said, noting the bulk of the time was spent in the hall. “They also overtook our parking lot and our dining room to feed everyone,” she said. The bonus in all this, Stack reflected, was that centre staff and patrons were able to watch the filming and some members even participated as extras in the dance competitions. “The producer and directors were awe-

some,” Stack said. “They were very accommodating and took us in to watch as much as we wanted,”she said, noting her personal highlight was meeting the Karate Kid star who played a leading role in this production. “It was strange and exciting to see Ralph Macchio in person,” Stack said. Holiday Spin stars Macchio [who also starred in the recently released Hitchcock], as well as actor Garrett Clayton [Disney’s Teen Beach Musical and Days of Our Lives], as a father and son forced together after 15 years apart. Macchio’s character, Ruben, is a dance teacher in Miami. Clayton plays his 17-yearold son Blake, a promising MMA fighter who has suddenly lost his mother in a car accident. Now forced to go live with his estranged father, whom he hasn’t seen since he was two, the teenager’s life takes some unexpected turns. Things get complicated when he meets Ruben’s prized pupil, 18-year-old Pia

(Vancouver’s Allie Bertram), who is training for the upcoming Holiday Spin – a yearly ballroom dance contest on Christmas Eve. When a romance emerges between Pia and Blake, it threatens to derail the fragile reconciliation between father and son. This Christmas flick airs on CTV on Friday, Dec. 21 at 9 p.m., and will air again on CTV2 on Christmas Day at 7 p.m. While there are no official plans for a Holiday Spin viewing party at the seniors centre, Stack said word of the show’s premiere has been sent out to the centre’s members since the facility is expected to play so prominently throughout. This isn’t the centre’s first time around with the film industry. It was the setting for another Christmas movie a few years back, and has been the backdrop for a children’s TV show called The Haunting Hour starring Christopher Lloyd, where the hall was converted into a bingo parlour. “I believe he played a vampire in that, and the bingo prize was a little girl. Quite comical,” Stack explained.

The event was also a benefit for the food bank and Feed the Children, and featured music, dance, visual arts, videos and a preview of the school’s spring production of Oliver. The school is looking to make this an annual event, showcasing student talent and helping causes. On Friday, Dec. 14, the school also showed community spirit with its Mini We Day. We Day is the event by Free the Children that encouraged young people to take part in global issues such as social justice, poverty and hunger, and more. The school held its own event with entertainment and education about global issues. Guest speaker Alexandra Atkinson, of Free the Children, spoke of the 121 million children around the world without access to clean water and the more than one billion people globally who live on less than $1.25 per day. “I’ve looked at those big numbers and I wanted to throw my hands up,” she said. She encouraged students not to be overwhelmed by the immensity of problems in the world. “The only thing I have to do is something,” she told the students.

Theatre

Kings have passion for panto

Have you heard about the BAHA’I FAITH?

Royal Canadian Theatre Company presents its 2012 British pantomime starting tonight.

www.langleybahai.org

by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

O

n the eve of what the Mayans say will be the end of earth, Langley’s Ellie King jokes about where she’ll be. She’s been joking on Facebook that she know’s where she’ll be, as does almost anyone who knows the local of queen of pantomime. She’ll be at the Surrey Arts Centre preparing for the curtain to go up on the first Royal Canadian Theatre Company’s Christmas production of Robinson Crusoe. Once again, King is the artistic director for the group’s panto, and she’s drawn in a number of Langley pirates to breathe life into what she vows will be a hilarious production opening tonight (Thursday, Dec. 20) and continues through Jan. 6. Most of the Langley actors on stage are panto regulars, including Claurien Zanoria in the principal girl role as the beautiful Princess Friday, as well as Leia Roberds, Susanne Delisimunovic and her daughters Stefi and Marinna, along with Emily Wilson. “Join Robinson Crusoe and his wacky family as they set sail in the SS Leaky Lucy for comical adventures on the high seas,” said King, who’s once again also turned this Christmas production a family affair. She’s joined behind the scenes by her husband Geoff – whom she said plays a “mean keyboard” – as musical director, and their son James – who prefers to be on stage and always plays the ultimate panto villain. He has taken the role as the Demon King. “Meet the dreaded Captain Blight, Griselda the Gorilla, and the evil witch doctor. Cheer Robinson on as he battles the fire demon to save the beautiful Princess Friday. Marvel at the volcano and laugh at jokes your grandfather thought were old! Music, merriment, mayhem, and magic complete your holiday season as you cheer the good guys, boo the bad, and sing along with your favourite performers,” said King. “Panto is a time-honoured genre of British musical comedy theatre that puts a boisterous spin on familiar childhood stories, infusing them with a generous helping of comic antics, topical jokes, toe-tapping music, outrageously zany characters, and loads of opportunities for the audience to get involved and join the fun,” explained King. And crafting pure British panto is a passion for King. “You are never too young for theatre when it comes to

a panto,” she reflected, “it’s fun for the whole family.” She made her stage debut at age three, in a Christmas panto in Liverpool, England. Now, with more than 20 years of writing, producing, and directing pantos throughout Metro Vancouver, this British “dynamo” is responsible for creating vivid holiday memories and traditions for a whole generation of local audiences and performers. Robinson Crusoe runs at the Surrey Arts Centre with performances at 7 p.m. on Dec. 20-22, Dec. 27-29, and Jan. 2-5. There will also be 3 p.m. matinee showings on Dec. 22, 23, 26, 29, 30, and Jan. 5, 6.

Season perfect for meatballs

W

ith entertaining season upon us, I want to share with you one of our favourite recipes, perfect for a buffet or cocktail party… or serve it with rice for a main course, as this recipe makes an abundant amount of sauce. Combining two different types of meat gives the meatballs more complex flavour and seasoned with Chinese 5 Spice powder they are perfect with this sauce. Enjoy! Ground chuck is available at your local butcher and is much meatier in flavour than typical ground beef.

OFF On Cooking

Honey Garlic Meatballs

Ingredients: 1 lb. (454g) ground chuck 1 lb. (454g) lean ground pork 2 large eggs ½ cup fine bread crumbs ¼ cup minced onion 2 tbsp. finely crushed or minced garlic 1 tbsp. Chinese 5 Spice powder 2 tsp. salt 1 tsp. pepper

Sauce: 1 cup + 2 tbsp. beef broth ¾ cup brown sugar (not golden) ½ cup liquid honey 6 tbsp. soy sauce 3 tbsp. cornstarch 1½ tbsp. finely crushed garlic ½ tsp. salt Preheat oven to 400ºF. Spray a baking sheet with baking spray and set aside. In a large bowl, combine

the chuck, pork, eggs, bread crumbs, onion, garlic, 5 spice, 2 tsp. salt and the pepper. Mix until thoroughly combined. Roll bits of the mixture into small meatballs approximately ¾-inch in size and place them on the prepared baking sheet. You should have 45 to 50 meatballs. Bake in the preheated oven for about 20 minutes, or until their internal temperature reaches 160ºF (71ºC). While the meatballs are cooking, prepare the sauce by placing the beef broth, brown sugar, honey, soy sauce, cornstarch, garlic and ½ tsp. salt in a medium heavy-bottomed pot. Place on medium-high heat and bring to a boil, stirring

occasionally. When it just starts to boil, stir constantly until it reaches a full rolling boil. It must reach a full boil to activate the cornstarch thickener fully. Remove from the heat and set aside. Place the cooked meatballs on paper towel temporarily to remove some of the fat. Transfer the meatballs to a serving dish, cover with the sauce, and serve immediately, with or without cooked rice. All the best of the holiday season to you!

Some people go in for the practicality of a well-built piece of furniture. Some are evoking memories of times past while still others find that touch of history fits in with their decorating style. Whatever the reason, the place to find the unique and unusual of yesteryear is Langley Antiques. LeeAnn Gregorowich and her husband Dan are owners of the downtown store that features 14 vendors also offering an array of antiques, collectibles and home decor wares. These lifelong antique lovers started out as vendors but grabbed the chance to buy the store when it came up for sale. They along with the vendors will mark the first anniversary in January with deals throughout. The store which aims to offer affordable antiques and collectibles is attracting a growing clientele from around the Lower Mainland. LeeAnn said a key to the business’ success has been bringing in knowledgeable staff.

Looking for a Christmas gift for that special someone? Be sure to mention that when purchasing. LeeAnn said typically antique stores don’t allow returns but the store has some flexibility so customers are happy with their pieces. It’s fitting that Langley Antiques should be situated on one of the province’s oldest roadways – Fraser Highway – and in the community where British Columbia began back in 1858. The shop at 20241 Fraser Highway is open Tuesday through Sunday, 10:00 AM to 5:30 PM. Got questions? Contact Langley Antiques at 604.530.2687.

Celebrate Safely PLEASE DON’T DRINK AND DRIVE money aside for transit or if necessary, let your guests stay overnight.

This holiday season we’re asking everyone to share the responsibility of being the designated driver. Is it your turn to get your family and friends home safely?

• Plan your safe ride home before you start drinking.

We want you to enjoy the season with your loved ones and have a great time. If your festivities involve alcohol, here are a few tips to help make sure everyone gets home safely:

If you’re going to drink, choose a designated driver before heading out. If it’s your turn to be the designated driver, be true to your commitment – your friends and family are counting on it. • Use other safe alternatives to get home safely: call a taxi, take transit, use a shuttle service or call a sober friend. • Another option is Operation Red Nose. From November 30 to December 31, if you’ve been drinking or are too tired to drive home, call 1-877-604-NOSE and a team of three Operation Red Nose volunteers will help make sure you, your passengers and vehicle get home safely.

• If you’re hosting a party, show your appreciation to the designated drivers by serving a variety of non-alcoholic drinks. Try getting creative with “mocktails” – great tasting drinks made without alcohol. As a responsible host, make sure your guests have alternatives to get home safely. Call a cab, set

Hockey

Former Chiefs’ sniper returns to LEC as a Spartan Matt Ius returns to the Fraser Valley to join Trinity Western University. A forward with a knack for racking up points will soon be playing on familiar ice. On Dec. 13, the Trinity Western University men’s hockey team added a major piece to its offensive puzzle with the signing of the former Langley Chiefs forward Matt Ius, who celebrates his 23rd birthday on Jan. 2. Along with his B.C. Hockey League experiences, the Pitt Meadows native also played 129 games at the Western Hockey League level over five seasons. He joins the Spartans after spending the 2012 fall semester with Canada West-playing Mount Royal. Due to injury, Ius played in just four games with the Cougars, registering three assists. “Matt definitely has a nose for the net, but he’s also an allaround player,” Spartans’ coach Dwayne Lowdermilk said. “To have a player like Matt coming to our team is a great boon for us for this season and the future.” Prior to his one semester stint with Mount Royal, the physical forward took a several-stop journey through the junior ranks from 2005-2011, playing out his career with seven different franchises including the WHL’s Everett Silvertips, Swift Current Broncos, Chilliwack Bruins, and Portland Winterhawks, and the BCHL’s Burnaby Express, Nanaimo Clippers, and Langley Chiefs. In his final year of junior hockey, 2010-11, Ius racked up 28

goals and 39 assists in 46 regular games with the Chiefs. He followed that up with six goals and 14 assists in 10 playoff games. After Langley was eliminated from the BCHL playoffs, Ius was

picked up by Portland and saw action in three regular season contests and 14 playoff games in the Winterhawks’ run to the WHL final. In his 129 regular season WHL

Ius combined for 40 goals, 56 assists and 89 penalty minutes. His 20-point effort in the 2011 playoffs was his lone post-season appearance in the BCHL. “The people who I talked to about Trinity Western had nothing but good things to say about it,” Ius said. “I’ve spent enough time away from my family so it was time to make a decision to come home. I saw an opportunity here to build a winner. I’m ready to be here for the next four years, get a degree and win a couple of championships.” Ius is expected to inject both energy and an offensive punch into a Spartans’ lineup that has scored a B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League-low 29 goals in 11 games this year. “I’ll bring hard work and physical play, and hopefully, with that work, goals will come,” Ius said. With the Spartans, Ius will once again call the Langley Events Centre home, having played the 2010-11 season there with the Langley Chiefs. Ius will join former Chiefs teammate Tyler Miller, who is in his first year with the Spartans. Ius plans to study business at TWU. With a 1-9-0-1 record, the Spartans sit in last place in the six-team BCIHL. TWU resumes play Jan. 5 when the Spartans visit the Ian Stewart Complex to play the University of Victoria. The Spartans’ next home game is Friday, Jan. 11 against Thompson Rivers University WolfPack. Opening faceoff at the LEC is 7 p.m.

Kodiaks’ extend win streak to six after taming Panthers by Troy Landreville sports@langleyadvance.com

The Aldergrove Kodiaks, winners of their last six contests, were put to the test Wednesday night at Aldergrove Arena. The Kodiaks hosted the Tom Shaw Conference-leading Delta Ice Hawks, but a caveat was attached to the showdown. The Ice Hawks were missing seven regulars, suspended as a result of Friday’s line brawl with the Abbotsford Pilots.

The suspensions mean the Ice Hawks will be using a few affiliate players, but Kodiaks’ head coach Ron Johnson wasn’t taking the visitors lightly. He said the call-ups would be out to impress the Delta coaches. “They have a good scouting staff, they’re a good organization, and the players they will put on ice will be [working hard],” Johnson said on game day Wednesday. Weather permitting, the Pacific Junior Hockey League game went

ahead as scheduled. The game got underway after the Langley Advance went to press. Kodiaks 6, Port Moody Panthers 1 The Kodiaks improved to 1611-0-1 after downing the host Port Moody Panthers Saturday. With the win, the Kodiaks strengthened their hold on second place in the PJHL’s Harold Brittain Conference. The equally hot Abbotsford Pilots hold down top spot with a 20-6-0-2 mark.

rently riding an eight-game win streak. In the first period against Port Moody, the Kodiaks jumped out to a 4-0 lead on goals from Samuel Ramsay (23 seconds into the game), two back-to-back from Ryan Veillet, and Tyson Solotki. Stefan Gonzales scored 41 seconds into the second stanza to put the Kodiaks ahead 5-0. At 11:52 of the middle frame, Port Moody’s Jackson Surbey ruined Aldergrove netminder Mark Menicucci’s shutout bid.

The Kodiaks’ Daniel Higgs rounded out the scoring midway through the third period. Johnson said once the score was out of reach, the Kodiaks worked on different elements of their game. “Out of of respect for their team,” Johnson said, “it was time to try different things and to give other players an opportunity on the powerplay.” The loss dropped the Panthers’ record to 5-22-0-1. • More online at www.langleyadvance.com

Indoor pole vault pit boon for TWU track athletes

A pit cut into the floor of David E. Enarson Gymnasium will allow for year-round training.

When it comes to pole vaulting at the Canadian Interuniversity Sport level, Trinity Western University is on the rise. This past fall, the TWU track and field program took a big step forward in terms of its pole vaulting future with the installation of a pole vault box inside the Spartans’ oncampus David E. Enarson Gymnasium. The box was cut into the floor of the Spartans’ old gym. While the pit still needs to be set up and taken down each time it’s used, it provides the TWU vaulters an opportunity for invaluable training within a controlled environment. And with the addition of the box, TWU is now the only university in B.C. to have an indoor pole vault training facility. “Pole vault is very much a precision sport and because of that, the requirement to have an environment that is consistent is really important,” said Spartans’ coach Laurier Primeau. “We’re looking for 18 degrees Celsius every day we jump and we’re looking for our athletes to be in a state where they are well rested and not fatigued. “The fact we can jump indoors where we have temperature control and we aren’t exposed to the

Right – The TWU Spartans track and field team has a dedicated pole vaulting coach, in former Canadian national team vaulter Rob Pike. elements is huge. All of these things are going to make big performance differences down the road.” Combined with the fact the Spartans also have a dedicated pole vaulting coach, in former Canadian national team vaulter Rob Pike, TWU could be on track to becoming a pole vaulting power in the CIS. This year, the team consists of four high-qual-

ity internationals including Rebecca Marchant (Melbourne, Australia), Ivonne Zuniga Padilla (Mexicali, Baja California), Jesse Phillips (Anaheim, Calif.), and Jamie Sinclair (Glasgow, Scotland). On the women’s side, Marchant has a personal best (PB) vault of four metres while Zuniga Padilla has a PB of 3.75m. Both are expected to be

in the mix for medals at the Canada West and CIS championships. At last seasons’ CIS championships, Laval’s Melanie Blouin won gold with a vault of 4.05m. On the men’s side, Phillips has a PB of 4.80m while Sinclair’s PB is 4.55m. Like the TWU women, the men will be striving for the podium at both the

conference and national championship meets. Last year, Saskatchewan’s Lane Britnell won the CIS gold medal with a vault of 4.95m while Western’s Matt Diston took silver with a vault of 4.90 and Toronto’s Townsend

Bernard nabbed bronze with a vault of 4.75m. The Spartans’ first competition of the track and field season will be Jan. 12 when they will compete at the University of Washington Indoor Preview at Dempsey Indoor.

University basketball

Cougars maul Spartans Cal State San Marcos scored 27 points off TWU turnovers in a lopsided win Monday.

It wasn’t really close, as the Trinity Western University men’s basketball team took one on the chin Tuesday night at Mira Costa College in Oceanside, Calif. The Spartans fell 83-60 to the Cal State San Marcos Cougars in the opening game of the CSUSM Holiday Classic. The Cougars are the 15th-ranked men’s hoops team in the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA). “Our youth is catching up to us. We are giving up too many turnovers, which are resulting in transition points for the other team. We continually have to play catch up ball,” TWU head coach Scott Allen said. “These games are defining us and it needs to change quickly for us to get to where we need to be.” The Cougars used a 24-12 edge in turnovers to earn 27 points off of TWU errors. The Spartans, who trailed 41-27 at the half, were led by Taylor Heinrichs with 13 points and eight rebounds, Eli Mara with 11 points, and Denny McDonald with 10 points and seven rebounds. The Cougars had a career performance from point guard Danny Redmon who went 10-of-15 for a careerhigh 26 points while adding five boards, three assists, and four steals. TWU was in the contest early and only trailed CSUSM by one point, 26-25, but the Cougars closed the opening half on a 13-2 run over the final 7:38 to take the 41-27 lead into the break. The lead stretched to 23 points, 61-38, eight minutes into the second stanza and the Spartans were never able to get back within 16 points the rest of the way. TWU faced John Brown Wednesday. Results were not available due to press deadlines.

Hillary Metcalfe, 14, and Martha Metcalfe, 16, travelled to Beaverton, Ore. for the Paul Bergen Junior International meet, while the rest of their team was in Victoria. The swim meet, named after Olympic level swim coach Paul Bergen, plays host to some of the world’s fastest swimmers under the age of 18 and is a breeding ground for breakthrough swims. The meet was attended by 18 & under swimmers from provinces west of Quebec, as well as athletes from Washington, Oregon, and teams from France and Germany. Overall there were 350 swimmers racing. Both local girls raced well with Hillary setting club records in the 50m breaststroke (33.15 seconds) and 400m IM (4:55.11). Hillary placed fifth in her 50m breaststroke event. She also went on to requalify for senior nationals in the 50m and 200m breaststroke swims. Olympians’ head coach Brian Metcalfe, said it “was a weekend of fast racing and very tough competition, but all the swimmers were on top form and came away with some great results.” LOSC registration is ongoing.

A young fan seemed to enjoy the challenge of staying in the middle of the spotlighted Langley Rivermen logo as it moved around a section of the Langley Events Centre’s arena bowl ice surface Sunday afternoon. Fans, mostly made up of youngsters, joined the junior A hockey team’s players on the LEC ice during a Skate with the Rivermen event, which followed the local squad’s 2-2 tie with the Powell River Kings.

The arena bowl is the site of matches involving students in Grades 6-12. Young wrestlers are grappling at the Langley Events Centre this week.

It is with an immeasurable amount of love and the utmost respect that everyone is invited to remember our mom and grandmother Henny Locken, in what would have been her 91st year. I would like to briefly share some of Henny Lockens past, with the town she had in such a hight regard for. Mom was born in Melbu Norway, a small town north of the Artic circle on Dec. 21, 1921. It was, as our gramma recalled 'the longest night of the year.' It was not until years later that all 7 kids learned the winter solstice is indeed the longest night of the year. Mom joined the navy, and after World War II married our dad. It was mom’s opinion that dad looked just like Dean Martin. Henny Locken was instrumental in soliciting monies for the public swimming pool in Fort Langley. She was also a driving force in starting the Langley Riders club in Langley. It was also through her (and the Rutherford and Hille families) efforts that the Langley Riders Society became the first and thus far the only riding club in B.C. to purchase and own their own property, which they still occupy to date. Mom was a good waitress and enjoyed a long time stint at Langley’s Golden Pagoda restaurant. After her retirement she kept herself busy making ribbons for horse events, knitting sweaters and sewing for people and still finding time to work Wed. at Fraser Valley Auctions. Two things she enjoyed immensely were making beautiful porcelain dolls and working in her garden. She was so proud when her dolls were used for a scene in the X Files. As mentioned we are thinking of Henny Locken, who died June 10, 2011. On her birthday that year, she would have been 90. The world is indeed a quieter place without her laugh and sharp wit. However on the right night, when all is still one can her her, oh yeah, uh huh as she answers a question she really isn’t certain of. Henny’s quote. 'Old age in not for the faint of Heart' Thinking of you this Christmas Season,

Your Children and Grandchildren.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Get ambitious. For several weeks, you’ll interface with bosses, parents, authorities (e.g., judges) and VIPs. These people wield the power to change your career and status in life – which are going to change anyway, over this and the next decade. But it’s better, usually, if you make those changes. You might receive a “deep hint” of this late this week and early next. Chase money Sunday/Monday – luck rides with you! Errands, details, paperwork Tuesday/Wednesday: you surprise higher-ups. Head for home Thursday (careful with career, electricity this day) to Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: A gentle, insightful, compassionate mood has stolen over you, and will remain for several weeks. Until late January, plunge into intellectual activities (school, publishing, law, religion, etc.) and travel, cultural venues and love. You shine and attract admirers Sunday/Monday. A love affair with life-mate potential could start – make sure there isn’t a “third party.” Chase money Tuesday/Wednesday – a “surprise” could enliven Christmas Day – drive carefully. Casual friends, siblings, conversations and short trips fill Thursday (careful driving, again) to Saturday. You’re loved! Gemini May 21-June 20: Delve beneath surface appearances; answers lie below. Your sexual, financial instincts rise to the surface during the weeks ahead. Be ethical, avoid extramarital temptations. Many things are changing: health, lifestyle, investments or financial arrangements, tax approaches, perhaps intimate loyalties. Work with these changes – see which way events are flowing, and veer that way. You have a lot of courage in these zones – allowing you, for example, to nudge another into intimacy. Rest, lie low Sunday/Monday. Your energy and charm rise Tuesday/Wednesday – start something important.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Relationships fill the weeks ahead. You might meet your true love. You might experience a growing chasm in your marriage. You might, through struggle and insight, bond more deeply with your spouse. These three possibilities fill the 11 years ahead, and will be highlighted every January. (This year, the emphasis peaks earlier, Dec. 27 to 30.) On other fronts,opportunities/changes arise in business partnerships/associations, relocation, contract negotiations and public dealings. Avoid litigation. Joy, Sunday/Monday. Rest, plan midweek. Charge forth Thursday p.m. onward. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The month ahead brings chores, health issues and duties to dependents. Oh well, just slog through. Eat, dress and sleep healthfully. You might find your duties are changing; some end, others begin, especially around Dec. 27 to 30. (If you need to protest or alter some of these changes, or need to grab any tiger by the tail, do so Dec. 31, when you’re in “winning mode.”) A domestic situation might also be involved. Be ambitious (but reject power-play temptations) Sunday/Monday – success awaits! Socialize midweek: popularity, joy enter. Retreat, rest Thursday to Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: You’ve entered a strong romantic, creative, pleasurable, speculative and child-oriented zone, to last to late January. You face changes in these areas (highlighted Dec. 27-30) – a quick or talkative (and certainly mildly evasive/ shy) person could be involved, could be the “new love.” If so, good – such people represent your future in the relationship zone. These are not dire changes, but good ones, prompting you to open up, to communicate in a different but beneficial way. Wisdom, gentle love for everyone, Sunday/Monday. Be ambitious midweek. Joy, social delights late week!

Dec. 23 - Dec. 29, 2012

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The month ahead focuses on home, kids, nutrition, real estate, foundations, security and retirement. In late November you faced an “angry day” – it triggered change and friction in this domestic arena, and since, has interfered with an ongoing love affair or marital situation. Now the changes deepen, especially around Dec. 27-30. DON’T move into a new abode, nor begin co-habiting with someone, before this Wednesday. This day ends the “breakup” influence, and starts a loving, romantic one. Secrets, finances lucky early week. Love, wisdom midweek. Ambition, Thursday onward. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The weeks ahead feature errands, short trips, casual friends and siblings, details, reports, paperwork and communications – you handle these well. This is a busy but not important time, so relax. Relationships fill Sunday/ Monday – events go well, but look at the larger picture: are you marching into a subtle trap? Secrets, sensual urges and high finance fill midweek: success mixes with disruptions, so remain alert. Don’t buy high-tech before Wednesday. Until Feb. 1, be gentle at home, contain temper – DON’T buy a new home or move into one. Thursday on, gentle love, wisdom. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Pursue money, buy/sell, chase a sensual link, and rely on your memory for the next four weeks. Trust surface appearances, statements – suspicion or seeking “more depth” will only lead to delay, disappointment (and perhaps a personal rift). Tackle chores Sunday/Monday – you’ll succeed with ease. Relationships brighten Tuesday/Wednesday, but they can also be disrupted – you have to choose between possessiveness/money and pleasure/ romance. Depths arrive Thursday eve to Saturday: investigate. Deep change is slowly coming to your income, up or down. See it, make adjustments.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Your energy, charisma, clout and effectiveness are high, your sense of timing “right on,” this week and the next few. Start important projects, schedule meetings, make contact, ask favours. You’ll impress potential amours – especially Sunday/Monday, when your own romantic urges surge. But in this, and in any creative or speculative venture, be aware, look far down the road: is the present “win” a win forever, or a step toward a larger, subtle dead-end? Tackle chores midweek, but take care with electricity, computers. Relationships arise Thursday onward: be calm, smile. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Weariness arrives. For several weeks, lie low, rest, contemplate and plan. Interface with civil servants, head office, and institutions (including schools, banks). Your inner life is undergoing a long, slow and complete transformation, ending in 2023. But seen from the outside, you are undergoing less change than anyone else. Your home and family, security and retirement zones meet immediate success Sunday/Monday – but ultimate success can prove elusive. Romance lures you Tuesday/Wednesday – it can be a bumpy affair, so proceed cautiously. Tackle chores Thursday onward. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: A quiet, private, deep, serious wish will come true over the four weeks ahead. Your deepest wish could be to understand a longlasting puzzle. For example, say you thought you’d been “deserted” by a father type, while in reality you were undercut by a mother type. If so, you see the truth. In any case, a family member wants to make amends, to heal a rift. You might spy a clue about this Tuesday afternoon/eve. Otherwise, this is a grand time of social delights, happiness, optimism and entertainment. Errands, Monday/Tuesday. Home comforts midweek. Romance, happy kids, Thursday on. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
