There was a baby boom at Langley Memorial Hospital on the first day of 2013. No fewer than five babies were born at LMH’s maternity ward Jan. 1. The first to come into the world was Shane Carter Greenwood, who arrived at 12:26 a.m. The babies kept coming at LMH. Boys were born at 2:10 a.m. and 3:04 a.m. followed by girls at 4:12 a.m. and 5:29 a.m. Shane, who weighed nine pounds, five ounces at birth, was not only Langley’s first baby of the year, but also has the distinction of officially being the Lower Mainland’s New Year’s baby. Son to parents Justin and Alyssa and kid brother to twoyear-old Shawn, Shane was 24 minutes shy of being the first baby born in B.C. in 2013. That honour goes to a baby boy born in Kamloops at 12:02 a.m.

Troy Landreville/Langley Advance

The Lower Mainland’s New Year’s baby, Shane Carter Greenwood, came into the world at 12:26 a.m. at Langley Memorial Hospital. Shane is a new son to mom Alyssa and dad Justin, and a brother to two-year-old Shawn. Shane continues a family born in Surrey. “I thought I was going to have tradition of New Year’s babies. Alyssa said the timing of a Christmas baby,” she said. On Jan. 1, 44 years ago ago, his Shane’s birth was a coincidence. Mom described the birth as grandma Kelly was the first baby Her due date was Dec. 27. “difficult, but manageable.”

Police say they have a man in custody after the discovery of a body in Langley.

Police watched over the scene of a New Year’s Eve day murder. Troy Landreville/Langley Advance

by Matthew Claxton and Troy Landreville news@langleyadvance.com

Langley RCMP forced a suspect off the road after a high speed chase following the discovery of a body in a quiet Willoughby neighbourhood Monday morning. Cole Adam Manning, a 40year-old Cloverdale resident, was killed. Jason Terrence Brewer, a 24year-old of Langley, was charged with second degree murder Wednesday morning. The incident began with a report of a body in a home in the 19800 block of 69th Avenue on the Willoughby slope, just after 7:30 a.m. Sgt. Jennifer Pound of the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) said Langley Mounties arrived with Township firefighters from the Willoughby

fire hall. The police found the body in the basement, and the man was confirmed dead before 8 a.m. Assistant Chief Rob Clausen of the Langley Township fire department said they were called out for medical aid, but were then

told not to go into the building until the RCMP had cleared it. Police identified a possible suspect in a very short time, Pound said, through what officers described as traditional police work. At about 9:30 a.m., Langley

RCMP and Abbotsford Police started to get sightings of the suspect’s vehicle. It was found on 264th Street near the TransCanada Highway, and a short but intense high speed chase south ensued.

Luke Barbieri struggled to handle his water balloon during kids games at the Walnut Grove Community Centre holiday family swim on Dec. 28. Hundreds of people filled the pool for an afternoon of splashing about and games.

An RCMP cruiser forced the suspect off the road not far from the Greater Vancouver Zoo. Police from both Abbotsford and Langley worked together to quickly stop the car, based on the fear that the suspect might harm someone else, police said. One RCMP cruiser was damaged forcing the suspect off the road. The entire chase lasted 30 to 40 seconds, Virk estimated. The suspect, Brewer, is known to police, Pound said. Online court records show that in July 2012, he was sentenced to one day in jail and 18 months probation for robbery. The sentence included a lifetime ban on possessing firearms. “The victim and suspect are believed to be friends, however, IHIT investigators continue to explore the motive for this homicide.

Langley Operation Red Nose has banner year

With more volunteers and more rides, more people got home safely. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Operation Red Nose had one of its best years ever, said coordinator Annie Pierotti. The Langley/Surrey chapter of the volunteer service got more than 900 people home safely after a night of drinking – and that doesn’t count the num-

bers for New Year’s Eve. Full numbers were scheduled to be released late Thursday, Pierotti said. “It was an amazing year,” Pierotti said. A number of new volunteers came out for New Year’s, and

Pierotti said she believed it was the best year for the service, which is organized largely by Langley Gymnastics. Volunteers with Operation Red Nose take people home, and ferry their cars, if they’ve been out drinking in December.

Bomb scares abound

Sadly, 2012 was a booming year for bombs and bomb scares around Langley. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Nobody got blown up in Langley, but there were several bomb scares, including hoaxes, a mistake, and a very real incident. On July 17, a fake bomb threat briefly cleared out the Wal-Mart near 65th Avenue in Willowbrook, and prompted a search of the premises by bombsniffing dogs. Nothing was found. On the morning of Aug. 3, Langley RCMP blocked off the area around the Langley Mall, at 204th Street between Douglas Crescent and the Langley Lodge, to investigate a suspicious package. A box with a scrawled message about it being a bomb was left leaning up against one wall of the mall near a sidewalk. While police cleared the area, they re-opened the street soon after. The box was empty. Police were looking for a woman seen nearby with a similar box just before the incident. There was another evacuation on Aug. 30, this time at the Walnut Grove Community Centre. Swimmers sat on the

Police don’t believe it was ever intended as a threat or hoax. Finally, on Nov. 12, the Langley RCMP appear to have brought a bomb to their own headquarters.

The investigation began as a report of suspicious activity. Police did not reveal much about the initial circumstances of the incident. They found a suspicious car and had it towed to the RCMP detachment on 48th Avenue at 223rd Street. Inside was a “suspicious package,” later confirmed to be a pipe bomb by the Explosives Disposal Unit. A 29-year-old Abbotsford man was arrested and police recommended explosives-related charges. The man was not previously known to police.

Bradshaw jailed Threats lead to school lockdowns by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Another long-running murder investigation came to a definitive end in 2012, as the last killer of Mark Bontkes and Laura Lynn Lamoureux was sent to jail. Robert Bradshaw was found guilty of two counts of first degree murder in both deaths, and received an automatic life sentence, with 25 years before he will be eligible for parole. Bradshaw, 28, was involved in the pre-planned killings of both victims. Bradshaw and his co-conspirators believed that the two victims had ripped off his drug dealing operation. Lamoureux was shot by Roy Thielen, who had separately pleaded guilty to two counts of second degree murder for his part in the crimes. According to a video confession Thielen made to the RCMP, Bradshaw pulled the trigger in the murder of Bontkes. Also involved in the murder of Bontkes was Michele Motola, 17 at the time of the killing, who was sentenced to six years in prison as an adult after pleading guilty to manslaughter. Both the victims were enmeshed in the local drug culture, but both had lives outside of that world. A Langley builder, Bontkes operated Designmarc Homes and had been putting up houses in the Willoughby area. Bontkes was one of six siblings, the son of Robert Bontkes of the Benchmark Group of Properties. He was a noted athlete at Credo Christian in his teens. Lamoureux was raised in Ontario, an athlete and equestrian who had planned to become a vet. After being sexually abused as a young woman, her life went off track, according to her family. Lamoureux moved to B.C., and her family was unaware of her involvement in drugs and crime. Bradshaw testified in his own defense at the trial, claiming to have not even known Bontkes and to have only known Lamoureux as a customer, saying he had no issues with her. The killings of Bontkes, whose body was found on the Langley-Surrey border in Hi-Knoll Park, and Lamoureux, killed in Langley City, were part of a string of murders in 2008. Almost all the killings were linked to the drug trade or gang violence.

Keep the spirit a little longer By now the aspirin has kicked in, and as everyone returns to the post-holidays workaday routine, reality is beginning to ooze back into the social consciousness. Boxing Day (or “Boxing Week”) sales have left their impact on our pocketbooks and bank cards. End-of-year and New Year’s celebrations have run their course. Christmas is once again something to look forward to months down the road. All the revelry of the past week or so is getting lost in the need to get back at the daily grind and the inevitably cold January weather. All those comfortable thoughts of giving selflessly and joy-to-the-world warmth are beginning to melt under the hot realization that Santa has yet one more round of deliveries to make: the yuletide will soon wash your credit card statements into your mailbox – e or snail. For many folks, the time to pay the piper is drawing nigh – and the price the piper is demanding may come as bit (or perhaps a lot) of a shock. Many people will be working hard over the next weeks or months just to catch up with the bills they rang up over the final weeks (or months) of the past year. The fallout from the upcoming season of bill-paying goes back to some of the selflessness so many of us felt during the preceding season of bill-making. Many of the people who needed our help to keep the figurative lights shining through the literally darkest part of the year still need our help. The destitute whom we helped lift out of the morass of economic and emotional need through December will quickly sink back down, if we don’t continue to help the local food banks and other relief organizations. This is a cold time of year, not just because the days are short and our part of the earth is tilted away from the sun. We’ve got to try to keep the warmth of Christmas burning a little longer. Giving will feel just as good today as it did one month ago. – B.G.

Fort residents not all stupid

Dear Editor, How lucky we are in Fort Langley to have someone like John Cameron to point out to us that we are not smart enough to understand a petition or a development [Boycott shows greater arrogance, Dec. 13 Letters, Langley Advance]. It might surprise you that they do educate us down here. We also were able to figure out what the developer sought was a “variance” to an existing plan. So when the Township’s own staff did not recommend to proceed, exactly what was the decision based on? The variance superseded the Heritage Plan and the Community Plan, and I would say that the 600-plus who were opposed all had Fort Langley addresses. To suggest we were pressured is indeed huge arrogance. I think Mr. Cameron owes the people of Fort Langley an apology. I don’t support boycotting another business over this issue. However, by choosing to insult those of us who can think for ourselves and are informed voters, he made himself look petty. I wonder, what is his agenda? J. Cook, Fort Langley

Holidays

Christmas lost in talk show

Dear Editor, What is going on here? We watched a TV show and heard a lot about how to celebrate Hanukkah, but when it came to Christmas, it became a “holiday” celebration. They were talking about the tree and how to decorate it, but the words “Christmas tree” would not pass their lips. It is OK to celebrate the victory in a war, which Hanukkah is, but the Prince of Peace may not be mentioned. Shame on you all. Karlhans Diersch, Langley

that “they had months to gather signatures.” The fact is that nearly 1,000 signatures were collected in less than a week. Many residents of Fort Langley were confident that a building so clearly outside of the Community Plan would not require a petition to convince our elected officials to stand by their preelection promises. Turns out they were wrong. I can only imagine the signatures that would have been collected if this petition had been circulated months earlier. Pamphlets were dropped off at residents’ doors, and each resident had the option to sign and return the petition on their own time. I believe this invalidates Mr. Cameron’s “looking over your shoulder in a voting booth” claim. I do not wish to defend Mr. McNeil’s statements [Mayor needs to listen to people, Dec. 6 Letters, Langley Advance]. However, I can see where his anger may stem from. Just over one year ago, Mayor Jack Froese participated in an interview in which he clearly stated that there is a need to get back to a level of respect for community plans. It was a pre-election interview. It seems clear that, postelection, Mayor Froese’s respect for the Fort Langley Official Community Plan is nowhere to be found. Daniel Lewis, Fort Langley

Aglukkaq taking aim at legal grass

Dear Editor, I am astounded by your misinterpretation of the facts about the decision by the Conservatives to take the production of medical marijuana out of the hands of local growers and giving it over to big business. Your comment, “Nobody wants illegal grow ops in their neighbourhoods or communities. We all pay for the electricity they steal. We all pay for the service costs they dodge by not paying taxes on their enterprising activities [Eager to fight grow ops now, Dec. 18 Opinion, Langley Advance]” is so far off the mark that it rises to the level of irresponsible trash reporting. Aglukkaq was talking about legal operations, not operations that steal electricity and don’t pay taxes.

Some growers may take advantage of the lack of oversight after the growing is approved and sneak in a few more plants than they are licensed for, but that is no different from any other legal business that aims to increase the bottom dollar by cheating the government a little. They all do it – it’s the capitalist way. The bottom line is these are not illegal grow ops. Do your homework before you spout off your misinformation on the pages of a newspaper. We already get enough spin from these Conservatives. We don’t need our reporters, upon whom we count for the truth, to do their dirty work for them. Marshall Neuman, Langley

Dear Editor, I strongly support Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender’s suggestion in the Langley Advance that “with the two Langleys being confused so often, one of them should really change its name [Murder mix-up hikes City crime stats, Dec. 18].” I couldn’t agree more! Mayor Fassbender is absolutely right. As Langley City was not formed until

per cent, either positive or negative. Some communities, such as Surrey and White Rock, saw greater volatility, with changes as much as 15 per cent. City Mayor Peter Fassbender said that it’s not surprising Jack Froese to see a downward trend in assessments. Langley Township Mayor “If it’s down, it’s because the market has kind of flattened out,” Fassbender said. Although the assessments are based on research done in July and October, the big decline in home sales in the Lower Mainland hit about four months ago, starting in September. Sales dropped sharply and from September to November were much lower than in the same months in 2011. However, prices declined only slightly or stayed stable over the same period, at least in the area around Langley. Fassbender said the slight declines in assessments should help stabilize taxes for City residents. Typically, sharp changes in taxes are only seen for those whose assessments are very different from the average in their community. If a home’s value goes up by more than the average, it means a faster increase in taxes paid for the coming year. A decline in value can reduce taxes slightly. Property owners can appeal their assessments by contacting BC Assessment at 1-866-825-8322 or at www.bcassessment.ca. Every year, at least a few local residents appeal their assessments either because they have shot up sharply, or have dropped dramatically.

Hitting the gym?

Since the new year and all those resolutions are looming large above us, it seems a fitting time to tell you about two new gyms that have opened in town. The first, designed for youngsters, is My Gym. This franchise fitness centre offering gymnastics and other fitness programs for kids ranging in age from six weeks to 13 years, actually became a neighbour to the Langley Advance a few months back now. Now owners Adriana and Alfonso Lopec are hosting their grand opening next Friday, that’s Jan. 11, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at their facilities #108-6375 202nd St. This was a dream come true for the Willoughby couple, who were looking for a business opportunity they could foster close to home. Moreover, it’s also a great way to give their very young children – a 10-monthold daughter and four-year-old son, a forum to get and keep active, said Adriana. While the young’uns are unlikely to have made any New Year’s resolutions – especially the ones about getting fit, to onus should be on us parents and grandparents to help them out. By getting them active now, it’s not only increases their strength, motor abilities, and social skills, but enhances their self-esteem and body awareness – giving them tools they can use for the rest of their lives. If you’re game, check out this 3,500square-foot gym, or search their programs (www.mygym.com/langley).

ensure all business centres in the community are better represented. Lo and behold, they’re not actually new positions. The former district directors are just being rebranded, and given a few new, added responsibilities. The chamber – in its role as the voice of business – hopes this move will enhance communication back and forth between the chamber and the businesses and associations in those neighbourhoods. Playing on the importance placed lately on the word “community,” they’ve renamed the same four positions previously dubbed district directors to community directors, with hopes these individuals will play a more public role liaising between their “communities” and the chamber. For instance, Danielle Nielsen from the Aldergrove Credit Union has been appointed as the South Langley community director. Michelle Chandra from Sutton Group West Coast Realty is representing Aldergrove; Scott T. Johnston of Campbell, Burton & McMullan is representing the City; and Viviane Barber of Facet Advisors is taking on duties as the North Langley community director.

And speaking of the chamber, there is an interesting topic – the Canadian oilsands – on the agenda for the first monthly dinner meeting of 2013. Don Thompson, the executive advisor for Sustainability and Oilsands Outreach, will be the guest speaker at the Jan. 15 meeting, announced Angie Quaale, president of the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce. “Canada has the third largest oil reserves in the world, with 97 per cent being found in the oil sands. As we move forward developing this resource, we must continue to work to achieve the balance between economic contribution, environmental sustainability, and energy security,” she said, excited to have what she calls “an expert” attending. Thompson is expected to provide the facts concerning the industry’s improvements in the area of emissions and water management, land reclamation, and environmental monitoring aimed at reducing its environmental footprint. The meeting begins with networking at 5 p.m., with dinner to follow at 6:30 p.m. at the Coast Hotel and Convention Centre, 20393 Fraser Hwy.

Equine lover goes from paint horses to painting on horses A herd of sculpted horses is being corralled in the mall this month. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

Vivian Harder stabled her Horsing Around Langley horse, The Gift Horse, in her Aldergrove home and main floor art gallery while painting it.

Aldergrove artist. Harder is a horse lover, rider, and painter. She sold her first painting at age 14 – naturally it was of horses (two of her grandfather’s plough horses to be exact), and she hasn’t looked back since. Now, the full-time artist said about half of her paintings contain horses – the rest are B.C. scenics, cats, and commission pieces. Ironically, she said, most of her paintings have contained horses – but this is the first time she’s literally painted on a horse. She first learned about the arts council Horsing Around initiative this spring, visited their website,

went through the “stringent” application process, “then I was on pins and needles for months… “Just because it’s horses and Langley, and I’m a Langley horse person who’s also an artist, I had to do it. I just had to,” she said. The original concept Harder pitched was to paint a horse with an First Nations poem and some wild horses running across the plains. Since that didn’t really fit with the Township’s concept of rural Langley, she needed to come up with an entirely new design. Finally receiving approval in mid-October, she went to work, feverishly painting about five or six hours a day over the course of the next month. “Once I got that concept clear

in my mind, it was easy from there. It just flowed out,” she said, pulling the horse into the middle of her main-floor home studio so she could work in relative comfort. “It was quite physical to do… painting on the contoured surface, climbing up and down, painting underneath… my body was really hurting some days,” said Harder, who overshot her estimated time by at least double, racking up 200 plus hours before handing over the reins. Admittedly, part of the challenge was also using “very specific” materials necessary because of the outdoor application. “[Acrylics] is my least favour-

angley’s newest auto body repair shop is putting the final clearcoat on a stable of horses on Friday. Yes, that’s right. Open Road Richmond Auto Body on Fraser Highway is applying a shiny protective coating to eight life-sized fibreglass horses (seven adults males and one colt) that have been painted up by local artists and are going to be trotted out in the middle of the month. They are the Horsing Around Langley pieces, and they’re making their public debut at Willowbrook Shopping Centre on Jan. 14, with the exhibition staying in place until Feb. 3. Horsing Around Langley is a year-long arts initiative, undertaken by the Langley Arts Council, to bring together the agricultural, and arts and cultural communities, while also raising awareness and funds for arts in Langley. The large white horses were painted by local artists, and thanks to sponsorship by local companies and organizations (with partial sponsorships still available for some), will be set up permanently in various locations around the community. But before that happens, they’re all being brought together for one showing at Willowbrook. Vivian Harder is one of the local artists selected to paint a Horsing Around horse, hers completed for the Township of Langley. “I am grateful that I was chosen to paint the horse for the Township of Langley, because I live, play, and work in rural Langley,” said the 54-year-old

ite medium to work with. I like watercolours and oils because of the way they blend together,” she said. While it was a lot harder and took a lot more time than this lifetime horse enthusiast ever predicted, Harder is elated with the outcome and said she’d do another – if given the chance. “The Township of Langley is described as a community of communities. I was able to portray this concept in my design by wrapping my horse with ribbons of roadways that tie the communities together. Not only does this give my horse a cohesive feel, it also makes him look like he is nicely gift wrapped,” Harder said. “The overall body of my horse is painted in the warm tones of the earth and is accented with blue sky and flowing rivers. He is highlighted with the sights and activities enjoyed by the residents of rural Langley. I am thrilled to be able to share this gift with everyone… and because this horse is wrapped in ribbons of roads and he is a gift to the people of Langley, his name is The Gift Horse.” Harder’s The Gift Horse, as well as the other completed sculptures will be on exhibit at the mall until early February. Willowbrook is also hosting a meet the artist days on Saturdays, Jan. 26 and Feb. 2, from 9:30 a.m. to 6 p.m., when people can meet Harder and the other local artists Marilyn Dryer Siedel, Felicity Holmes, Glenda Mantle, Jeanie Shilton, Louise Swan, Becky Wallace, and Rosemary Wallace. While the first eight horses are completed, the arts council is not yet done, said executive director Don Shilton. He’s optimistic the concept will grow, and the horse sculptures will one day be found scattered in key locations throughout the community.

In the Garden

O

by Anne Marrison

ne of the things I love about the sayings of really good gardeners is the kind of humility that only arrives from coping with the mix of disasters, joyful surprises, and embarrassing mistakes that are inevitable for people working with plants and the soil. For instance, Helen Dillon confesses (in her book Helen Dillon on Gardening): “For me, clematis hold a fatal attraction. Fatal, that is, for the clematis. I’ve killed more of these irresistible climbers than anyone else so feel quite entitled to pontificate on their cultivation or lack of it.” The truth is, the more plants a gardener attempts to grow the greater the count of eventual casualties – especially if they are rare or littleknown. Ultimately the death count is accompanied by a few successes and the persistent gardener becomes philosophical about the vagaries of certain plants. As the eminent alpine gardener Geoffrey Charlesworth observed: “Aquilegia jonesii: seed is available, we get plants, they die. If they don’t die, they don’t flower. Occasionally one will flower and then die.” (from his book The Opinionated Gardener). Seed-growing of perennials, shrubs, and trees is one of the most tempting gardening gambles to some of us. Frequently the most beautiful species are the least available and the most difficult. For instance, nature is usually determined

not to let all its seed babies germinate at once because a drought or animal browsing on seedlings could wipe out one whole generation. That’s why seed pots of perennial, shrub, or tree seed should never be considered a failure for at least five years. I’ve had hellebore seedlings emerge 10 years later in places where I dumped the seed pots. Preserving the species is also the motivation behind bulbs that put down droppers. Snowdrops, bluebells, and crocosmia will put down a sturdy root below a shallow bulb and form another bulb (or more) several inches deeper than the first one. I found three dropper bulbs at different levels on one snowdrop plant once. It can be quite disconcerting when plants in our gardens march to their own timing, not ours. For instance, Hellelbore foetidus is reputed to be a shade and moisture lover. But mine like to self-seed in a sunny west-facing bed, which almost never gets watered in summer. Whether it’s transplanting, pruning, keeping weeds and pests at bay or obtaining a crop in good years and bad, gardening isn’t just healthy physical exercise. It’s a test of patience, resilience, ability to plan, and most of all to develop a philosophy that can carry you through good years and bad. For instance I have been trying unsuccessfully to get viable cuttings and/or seed of the yellow berried form of the native elderberry (Sambuscus racemosa) for 15 years. Now the roadside tree has been cut down. But perhaps it will shoot again. In his book, Crazy about Gardening, Des Kennedy says after describing a tomato disaster: “One learns not to question this thing nor to be too thrown off by it.” Best wishes to all of you for a happy New Year and success in your gardens.

Rivermen cap 2012 with weekend sweep of Express Contributor

Turns out, the 11-day Christmas break was good for the Langley Rivermen. In its first action since the break, Langley’s B.C. Hockey League team swept its weekend series against the Coquitlam Express, winning 7-4 Saturday at the Langley Events Centre and 61 Friday in Coquitlam. The Rivermen, who improved to 13-14-1-5 on the season with the two wins, now sit just one point back of the Express, who hold down the fourth and final playoff spot in the BCHL Mainland Division. The Rivermen have two games at hand on the Express, who dropped to 16-18-1-0. Rivermen head coach/general manager Bobby Henderson was in Calgary for a weekend scouting trip, so he wasn’t behind the

Coquitlam Express’s Mitchell Fyffe was called for tripping after getting his stick tied up in the feet of Langley Rivermen forward Evan Campbell during the second period of Saturday’s B.C. Hockey League game at the Langley Events Centre. The Rivermen outscored the Express 7-4. bench for the two games. He watched the games online and said the ’Men, the league’s second highest scoring team with 114 goals for, gave their fans a show Saturday. “I thought the guys played pretty good… we gave up too many chances but we got the job done,” Henderson said. “At the end of the day, [the two wins are] four huge points for

us. Great value for the fans for sure, but it made the coaches grey a little bit. At this point, a win is a win is a win.” Henderson said the No. 1 goal is to play in the post-season. “From game to game, our team goal is to make the playoffs,” he said. “Whether we’re in fourth spot, third spot, it doesn’t matter. We just want to get better, day after day.”

Rivermen 7, Express 4 The Rivermen ended their 2012 schedule with a high-scoring, home-ice win over the Express. Langley goaltender James Barr and Coquitlam netminder Cole Huggins started for a second straight night. The ’Men opened the scoring just before the game was three minutes old.

Austin Azurdia, in his first game back from a three game suspension, and on his very first shift, scored his 10th of the year on a breakaway. Just over eight minutes later, Ben Butcher, Evan Anderson, and Azurdia combined for the second tally of the game. Anderson put the puck on goal with Azurdia and Butcher standing in front and it was Butcher getting the last touch of the puck on a rebound goal in tight. Then, at the 12:47 mark, Mario Puskarich put away his leagueleading 24th goal of the campaign on a powerplay. The Langley sniper slowly skated to the top of the left circle, waited for a screen in front and ripped home a laser beam up into the top left corner. That goal chased Huggins from the net, making way for backup goaltender Daniel Urbani. Henderson said Puskarich’s prolific season (he has 49 points in 33 games) is a spillover from last year when he ended up with 59 points in a full 60 contests. “He’s been playing excellent going back to last year,” Henderson said.

The two novice teams were among the 48 ranging from the tyke to midget A levels competing in the Angels On Ice girls hockey tournament, that ran Dec. 27-30 at the Sportsplex and Langley Twin Rinks.

Barr turns aside 47 shots as ’Men down Express in Coquitlam

…continued from page A19 “There wasn’t as much of a supporting cast as last year.” The head coach added, “We’re getting production from every line right now, so it helps when teams aren’t just focusing on him.” However, the change in goaltenders seemed to spark the Express as they capitalized on a powerplay goal of their own from Zachary Pryzbek. Just over four minutes later, Coquitlam’s Philip Zielonka scored off a rebound on another powerplay, to cut the lead to one goal with time winding down. But with under 30 seconds to go, it was Logan Smith’s turn to hit the score sheet. The Langley captain, who was still searching for his first BCHL goal, jumped up on a rush with Puskarich who slid a perfect cross ice pass to his teammate. The big defenceman made no mistake, restoring the two-goal lead going into the second frame. The second period was more of a defensive battle and both goaltenders were the story. Langley put 19 pucks towards Urbani who stopped every single one, while Coquitlam fired 14 on Barr and was able to sneak one by him. The lone goal scorer was Siemer who was able to fake out Barr at the top of the crease with some slick stickhandling before slipping the puck between his legs. But for a second straight night, the ’Men saved their best period for last.

With his team holding one-goal lead entering the period, Azurdia notched his second of the game just past the two-minute mark on a perfectly executed wraparound. At the 4:14 mark, Langley’s Jakob Reichert stripped Zielonka of the puck deep in the Express zone before snapping home a shot along the ice to give his team a three-goal lead. However a shift later, Siemer made it a two-goal affair, yet again on a solo effort for his 18th of the year. That would be all the Express would get and just for good measure the Rivermen’s Derek Sutliffe capped off the night on an impressive wrist shot off an Express turnover deep in their own zone. Azurdia was named the game’s first star with three points, while Siemer and Anderson rounded out the other two. Barr turned aside 40 shots as the 19-year-old puckstopper picked up his 12th win of the season. Rivermen 6, Express 1 Friday at the Poirier Sports and Leisure Centre, the Rivermen recorded their second win against their division rivals in two weeks. Coquitlam came out flying out of the gates and had a 4-0 shot advantage before the game was even a couple of minutes old. However, the ’Men weathered the storm and opened up the scoring on the powerplay on a goal from Butcher. With time running out on the man advantage, Viktor

Mario Puskarich, the top goal and point getter in the B.C. Hockey League, looked to get a handle on the puck behind the Coquitlam Express goal as defenceman Cal Hofford moved in to check him during the second period of Saturday’s B.C. Hockey League game at the Langley Events Centre. Puskarich tallied a goal and an assist in a 7-4 Rivermen victory. Dombovskiy spotted an open Butcher on the right side. After taking the pass, Butcher snapped a quick shot past Huggins for his seventh of the year. Nineteen seconds later, Sutliffe made it 2-0. Huggins stopped Mitch McLain and Reichert, but could not stop the third opportunity from Sutliffe in close. But with under five minutes to go in the period the Express got on the board on a powerplay goal from the red-hot Zielonka. The Quebec native took the puck

around the goal and fired a wrist shot beneath the blocker of Barr to extend his goal streak to 12 games and his point streak to 19. The second period was much more tame, with only one goal scored, and it came from Rivermen forward James Robinson on the powerplay. The Calgary Edge product took a nice pass from Puskarich down the left wing before muscling home a backhand shot over the left pad of Huggins. Barr was busy yet again in the

frame, turning away 15 shots, while Langley directed just five on Huggins. With a two-goal lead going into the third period, the Rivermen saved their best period for last. Puskarich put away his 23rd goal of the year on a perfectly executed two-on-one with Robinson. A few minutes later, McLain jammed home a loose puck in the crease for his second point of the game. Coquitlam had three more powerplay opportunities before the 15 minute mark, but could not capitalize on any of them. With under three minutes to go, former Express forward Evan Campbell put his old team away on a beautiful snap shot down the right wing that beat Huggins clean over the left shoulder. Barr was the story, facing 47 shots picking up the win and first star honours. Puskarich bagged four points and padded his lead in the goal and points race in receiving the second star nod, while Robinson was the third star with a goal and an assist. The special teams department was a key factor all game long as the Langley’s powerplay went two-for-four while its penalty kill unit was even more solid, killing off five of six man advantage opportunities.

Junior A hockey

Rivermen make d-man deals

The ’Men have added a home grown player on their backline.

The Langley Rivermen said goodbye last week to their former captain and hello to a young defenceman with Langley roots. Just before the new year, the junior ‘A’ hockey team made a pair of trades involving rearguards. The ’Men traded former captain Thomas Nitsche (1992 born) to the Penticton Vees for future considerations and acquired Austen Bietenbeck from the Surrey Eagles for future considerations. A Langley native, Bietenbeck turns 18 tomorrow (Jan. 4). Nitsche, a native of North Carolina, appeared in 82 games with the ’Men and racked up five goals and 21 assists to go along with 101 penalty minutes. He captained the Rivermen at the start of the season. “It was tough moving a guy like Thomas, who has been around since day one, but at the end of the day

we feel we needed to get younger and 198 pounds. He appeared in 20 on the blueline and we are confident games for the Eagles this season, that he will flourish in Penticton,” posting one assist.

(nee Chenger)

With sadness we announce the death of Irene Anne Hilton (Chenger), the matriarch of our family. She passed from this life the morning of December 28, 2012. Irene was tiny in stature but mighty in spirit, and was very much engaged in her family and her world. Born on November 8, 1922 in Lethbridge Alberta, Irene had recently celebrated her 90th birthday with a grand party. Irene was pre-deceased by her long-time and much beloved companion Bill Lewis in 2010. She missed his warm light-hearted presence very much. They are together again. Irene was immensely proud of her three fine sons, Bill (Carol), Steven, and Dan (Michele) with her former husband Wilfred. It is no small thing to lose a mother like Irene. She adored being a grandma to Ronal (Idelle), Megan, Simon, Andrea (Nick) and Lindsay; and was thrilled to be greatgrandma to Adria, Kayla, and Chloe. Irene’s Catholic faith sustained her. Her Funeral Mass will be held at St. Joseph’s 20676 Fraser Highway, Langley, BC, on Friday January 4th at 10:30 am, followed by a reception. In lieu of flowers, make a donation in Irene’s memory to BC Heart & Stroke Foundation.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: The accent continues on ambition, status, prestige relationships and your dealings with authorities. From 2008 to 2024, higher-ups are serious, implacable, heavy-handed. Yet, from 2011 to 2018, rebellious urges visit you strongly; you have seldom been so unwilling to compromise. The result could be a battle royal: but before you enter it, contemplate their motives and your options. To succeed, fulfill higher-ups’ dreams and social wishes, which are the same as your own financial, research and/or sexual goals. Sorry this is puzzling: no other way to express it. Clues Sunday. Taurus April 20-May 20: Soon love questions will be resolved – the mysterious, the lustful, will dissolve to become understanding, gentle affection. (That’s not a decrease in love, but a transformation to a stronger base.) Continue, all month, to avoid friction with higher-ups: smile, tackle chores promptly. You might be “kicked upstairs” – into a management role. The nicest thing: these weeks are filled with a mellow wisdom: useless fears melt away. Relationships (to autumn 2015) are slow, demand loyalty and “repeated effort” – but this trend also brings the right mate to singles – clues Sunday. Gemini May 21-June 20: As I predicted, your friendship circle has begun to grow over the last few months (compared to 1996-2011). This month, you might fear that the old barrier has returned, as a solitary mood steals over you. But this is temporary – by late January, and especially February to June (and doubly especially in April) your optimism will return, and friendships will increase again! Meanwhile, use the solitude, depths, mysteries and urges of the present to invest, or to make good changes in your life: bold changes! (Best Thursday/Friday.) Protect health Sunday/Monday. New vistas midweek.

Cancer June 21-July 22: This week starts with romance and/or passion – and/or, because the passion can be creative, or about a risky venture, or passion for a child’s future. Be careful in these – a secret, a too-lustful approach, or a money or health factor (e.g., herpes) could lead love into disappointment or anger. Be moderate. Tackle chores midweek. Thursday/Friday bring opportunity and opposition. True love is a potential all week, but if true love is born now, it’s likely to be a fiery, perhaps rocky one! The weekend is for mulling, figuring it all out. All month, invest or research in career. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: A pile of work faces you. (With more chores than you might suspect on the home front, as Sunday/Monday hint.) Might as well plunge in and get it done. A relationship heats up now into February – this can be love or enmity, but a definite societal, intellectual, travel, cultural or legal theme accompanies it. “Dynamic” couples might agree to wed – or travel. Tuesday/Wednesday emphasize romance, pleasure, sports, creative surges and speculative ventures, but only Tuesday “come through.” There’s that work – in spades – Thursday/Friday. Careful Saturday eve: wrong relationship! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The accent lies on romance, creativity, sports, games, charming kids, beauty and pleasure – you’re riding a winning streak, especially Thursday/Friday, when a new love affair or a new creative project could start. But work demands your attention, too. This week, a schedule keeps you from careening all over the place. (Ignore schedules next week, when opportunities need flexibility.) Sunday (better) and Monday (a dud) feature short trips, communications, curiosity and variety. Attend to your foundations, home and family (and your need for rest) midweek – start projects Tuesday.

Jan. 6 - Jan. 12, 2013

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The focus lies on home, children, nutrition, land, security, retirement. These basic matters are undergoing deep, significant change in the 2008-2024 period. Many Librans “made their nest” in the last three years: but now you might be spending on that nest, or on your children. You don’t mind, because you see the lasting value involved. Still, keep expenses in line with a conservative income picture, now to late 2015 (clues Sunday/Monday). A romantic thread winds through January, could lead you to a true mate, especially from the 21st into February. Security and amour don’t mix. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The accent lies on communications and travel, especially Thursday/ Friday, when a new project might emerge. Be curious – what you find now might form the basis for future projects/actions. E.g., you might wander into a neighbourhood where your next home will be. Act slowly, wisely and gently on the home front all month. Your energy and charisma soar Sunday/ Monday (though little might get done Monday – stick to routine jobs). Chase money, buy/sell Tuesday. Settle into home comforts Saturday – a.m. lucky, p.m. not. Soon – not yet – a major, beneficial lifestyle change will arrive. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Chase money (buy/ sell, expand clients, tug your boss’s shirttail, etc.). That will be easier next week than this one, but by waiting you might miss a good opportunity (probably Thursday/Friday) to launch a lucrative process. You’ll feel restless all month, as a streak of curiosity and wanderlust draw you toward a pleasurable (or romantic) destination. Reading, writing, news media and coffee shops can ease your itchy feet. If you have feelings for someone, tell them. Don’t mistake solitude for security. Lie low, rest early week. You shine Monday/Tuesday! Travel Saturday.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness continue at a yearly high. Start important projects, see and be seen, call in favours, propose new schemes to bosses or employees. You’re on a rise! Money flows to you all month – bank it, or you could lose more than you gain. Spend only – carefully – on household items, real estate, food and shelter. Your optimism, cheerfulness and happiness rise on a swell of friendly feeling Sunday/Monday. (Monday, money and social plans might conflict.) Until late 2015 your hopes and wishes will be sober, serious – and more likely to come true. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Retreat, plan. Rest, contemplate. Support others, and seek support if you need it. Therapy, charitable acts, interfacing with government agencies or corporate head offices – these go well. Your determination and sex appeal are strong now, but keep them “in reserve.” Avoid overexertion, and overstaying your welcome. By the 19th onward, you’ll burst into an all-round explosion of accomplishment. Higher-ups are observing Sunday/ Monday. Smile, rather than vent your frustration Monday. Hope returns midweek. But the full extent of your weariness hits Thursday/Friday: find sweet rest. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: This week and next bring popularity, light romance, wish fulfillment, entertainment and optimistic plans for the future. Be thoughtful Sunday/Monday. Wisdom will nudge you to reject a money source that’s “tainted” or too secretive. Be ambitious Tuesday; act early, take steps to firm/form alliances and seize career opportunities. Wednesday’s the same, a pleasant, ambitious day – trouble is, it yields little. Stick to routine. That popularity and light romance arrive strongly Thursday/ Friday – enjoy! But retreat Saturday, take a rest. All month, avoid unsavoury people and locales. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
