Power up at events centre Casino a

Langley will have free power at several electric car charging stations by this spring. by Matthew Claxton

Langley Township is taking its place on an electric highway that will stretch from Southern California to Vancouver, with the announcement of six car chargers coming this spring. The Langley Events Centre will be the host site for a DC Fast Charger, one of more than a dozen to be installed around the province this spring. Up to 30 could be installed in various towns around the province by 2015. The fast charger can top up the battery on an all-electric car in about 10 minutes, or do a complete recharge in 30 minutes. That same recharge takes about seven hours for a Nissan Leaf, one of the few commonly available electric cars, if using a home recharger. “It is a highly visible and convenient location and an ideal place for a fast charging station,” Township Mayor Jack Froese said in a statement. The cost of the station and its installation and maintenance will be borne by the province.

Langley Township’s mayor is open to a casino proposal. by Matthew Claxton

Langley Township isn’t actively looking to open a casino, but it isn’t ruling the idea out either, the mayor said. “We certainly are open to any casino operators that would like to talk to us,” Mayor Jack Froese said this week. In the wake of a Surrey council decision to pass on a casino project in South Surrey, the head of the B.C. Lottery Corp. (BCLC) named Langley as a possible site. “We’ll now look at whether it is something that could be developed in the south end of Langley or southwest part of Delta,” said Michael Graydon. While saying he’s open to listening to options, Froese questioned whether the southern portions of Langley are really the right area. The Township is just starting a new neighbourhood planning strategy that could greatly increase the size of the Brookswood-Fernridge area, in southwest Langley. But all possible plans call for the area to be largely residential. “I can’t see that going over too well,” Froese said of a casino in the middle of Brookswood. Most other areas in South Langley are likely off limits because they’re in the Agricultural Land Reserve, he said. He also noted any location would likely have to be a decent distance from the existing casino in Langley City. In 2002, when Langley City’s Gateway Casino was first proposed, the Township council and many residents reacted with shock. Township councillors suggested splitting the shared Langley RCMP detachment in two, and then-mayor Kurt Alberts was on the record opposing the project. Concerns about crime and the social ills of gambling were at the forefront of the debate. Froese, a former Vancouver police officer, said that many of the ills proposed at the time have not come to pass, and that other communities have noticed the City’s gambling revenues. If anything is suggested to the Township, there would be full public consultation, Froese said.

City pioneer John Jeffery passes The last member of Langley City’s first council back in 1955 has died. by Heather Colpitts

John Jeffery, who died Saturday, Jan. 19, was part of the committee that lobbied the government for official community status for Langley City. Jeffery would go on to sit on the provisional city council that was appointed after incorporation in 1955. The man integral to the City’s formation never ran for public office, because his father was a business licence inspector, and John didn’t want to run into a conflict of interest. Instead, he helped many community groups and committees. He was also invited to run for provincial politics, but opted not to. At his side the whole time while he was involved in the community was his wife, Charmaine, whom he married in 1950. He is survived by his wife, their son Bryce and wife Marianne, and grandchildren Coralie, Tiffany, and Thomas. John’s father came out from Saskatchewan at the encouragement of his sister and her husband, E.J. Cox. Cox founded the Langley Advance. “John used to help out at the Langley Advance,” Bryce explained. He was also a Vancouver Sun reporter, working under theneditor Pierre Berton in the late 1940s. “Dad was a good writer,” Bryce commented. John had served in the RCAF

John Jeffery was on Langley City’s first council in 1955 and active in the community since moving here as a child. during the Second World War. Mayor Peter Fassbender spoke of Jeffery’s passing at the Jan. 21 council meeting. Jeffery was 91. “John was instrumental in the formation of the City of Langley,” the mayor said. Langley City came about because the small urban area, known as Langley Prairie, was taxed by the Municipality of Langley but was not receiving adequate services such as sewer, water or street lighting. In 1951, residents of the area called for incorporation, an idea that had been around since before 1940. An incorporation

Charges dropped in dog thefts Charges of stealing dogs in Langley and elsewhere have been dropped against several women. by Jennifer Saltman Special to the Langley Advance

Charges have been dismissed against four women accused of stealing dogs for Surrey-based A Better Life Dog Rescue. Diane Faith Young Hale, 65, appeared in B.C. Provincial Court in Surrey Thursday, when charges of possession of stolen property and break and enter were dropped. The charges were laid in connection with incidents from Aug. 1 and 2, 2011, in Langley. Charges were previously dismissed for Michaela Schnittker, Natalia Anna Borojevic and Christine Carter. Schnittker, 47, of Richmond, was charged with theft and break and enter for an alleged incident in Richmond on July 9, 2010. Borojevic, 26, of Burnaby, was charged with theft in a Feb. 2, 2011,

incident in Surrey. Carter, 55, of Surrey, also was charged with theft, in connection with an alleged March 25, 2007, incident in New Westminster. The charges were dismissed after all four women successfully completed alternative measures programs. Alternative measures can be used in cases involving less serious offences and usually involve offenders with no criminal history. The accused is given the opportunity to accept responsibility for the crime and make amends to the community outside the court system. Janet Olson, founder and director of A Better Life, still faces 36 charges. She is alleged to have taken dogs in Surrey, Coquitlam, Langley, Abbotsford, Mission, Vancouver, White Rock, Richmond, Delta and New Westminster. A preliminary inquiry is scheduled for June. In August, Louise Mary Alice Reid, 60, a former co-director of A Better Life, was given a conditional discharge after pleading guilty.

Council battles Year-round school is on the table over motions Langley is looking at how to divvy up the school calendar.

A plan to radically scale back motions by councillors is on hold for now. by Matthew Claxton

Issues of free speech, the law, and costs to taxpayers were thrown about as Langley Township councillors debated limits to motions at Monday night’s meeting. Coun. Grant Ward made a motion of his own that would limit the councillors to one motion per month, or 10 per year. He immediately suggested referring his plan to a council priorities committee meeting, rather than hashing it out during a regular session. “This is going to be a contentious item,” Ward said. He was not wrong, as several councillors immediately raised concerns. Coun. Kim Richter called it an attempt to muzzle her and other councillors. Richter generally puts forward an average of one or two notices of motion per evening meeting, and is by far the most prolific in terms of using motions around the council table. “The referral motion is out of order, this notice of motion is out of order,” Richter said. The councillor said she had shown Ward’s motion to a Township lawyer on Monday. She went on to say that he had reviewed it and said it was contrary to the Canadian Charter of Rights. There was a fair amount of crosstalk as Richter spoke, as Ward called “point of order” several times, and Froese tried to turn the right to speak over to Ward, as Richter was talking about the motion rather than its referral, while Richter said the mayor was showing bias. Other councillors also had concerns. Coun. David Davis also framed the matter as a free speech issue. “We can’t, we just can’t go around muzzling councillors,” Davis said. “I have some concerns about the process, I have some concerns about going in this direction,” said Coun. Steve Ferguson. He tried to pour oil on the waters, saying he believes it isn’t always best to run a community by motions, but there were ways to discus it. On the issue of legality, Coun. Charlie Fox asked for a legal opinion before Ward’s plan is sent forward to any further discussion. If lawyers for the Township say it’s illegal, it shouldn’t go forward, Fox said. The cost of motions being put forward was brought up by Coun. Bev Dornan, who said that developing motions on the fly can be a way to deal with concerns of the public, but it can also download more work onto Township staff members. The council ultimately voted to refer the motion to its planning committee, but it will have to wait until at least May for further debate, after budget discussions. Froese asked for the delay to avoid slowing down talks about Township financial matters, which will be taking place over the next few months. Ferguson, Richter, and Davis were opposed to the referral.

Should Langley School District students go to school year round? All the options will be on the table as the Langley School District looks at revamping school calendars. Any changes would not come into effect before the 2014/15 school year. Changes in provincial legislation allow districts more options for modifying the calendar. Langley’s school board has sched-

uled a public open house to start to gather opinions. It’s 5-7 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 29, right before the regular school board meeting. “We invite our parents, guardians, students and staff to join us in this exciting discussion about what we might consider doing differently in order to positively impact the lives of Langley children,” said superintendent Suzanne Hoffman. Throughout February, the public can answer a district survey. The online site will be available starting Feb. 1. The district will look at keeping its existing calendar or switching to one of two year-round schooling options. Regardless of the calendar, stu-

dents must have 186 days in the classroom during the school year. The district had surveyed the community on calendars in 2011. Of the 2,718 people who voted, 76.6 per cent favoured the two-week spring break and an extra day off in November. The 2012 survey had 671 respondents and a 66.2 per cent vote in favour of the longer spring break and extra day off in November. Examples of each calendar option are at Any additional questions or feedback can be emailed to and join the conversation on Twitter #sd35calendar.

Butt out today, butt out forever You know a hundred reasons to quit smoking already, but for National NonSmoking Week, here’s another. Lung cancer migrates. It can spread, into the brain, into the glands, and into the bones. If you sign up for lung cancer, you are spinning the roulette wheel of cancer. Will you simply get a painful, wheezing death as the cancer ravages your lungs? Or will you get seizures, loss of vision, and violent mood swings as it carves its way through your brain, through your very sense of self? Perhaps, if you are particularly unlucky, it will take root in your bones, giving you one of the most painful experiences known to humankind. There is a more positive reason to quit smoking, too: everyone is on your side. Everyone. Those who’ve never smoked, and those who quit years ago will applaud your decision. The B.C. government will be happy with you, and will even give you free medications to help you quit, through the smoking cessation program. Bars and pubs in B.C. will be happy that you’re not nipping out the door so often for a smoke, letting in that cold air. Ditto your significant other, who will be able to avoid either allowing you to smoke inside, or banishing you to the garage or deck. Your bank account will be particularly pleased, and you will be pleased in turn when you see how much more money is there at the end of a month. It adds up, even if it’s only a couple of packs a week. Your doctor will give you a big grin. Try for a fist-bump, the doc will probably go for it. Chefs everywhere will be happier, because you will be able to better taste their food. A few years from now, you’ll have mostly forgotten why you started smoking the first place. You don’t wheeze going up a couple flights of stairs any more, you can’t stand the smell of tobacco smoke, and much of the spectre of an early death has been lifted from you, and from your loved ones. C’mon, butt out. We’re rooting for you. – M.C.

Fort Langley

Lesson to be learned from Watts

Dear Editor, High praise to the mayor of Surrey, Dianne Watts, who cast the deciding vote to prevent the Casino complex to be built in south Surrey. One cannot help but respect the mayor’s statements that underline the importance of listening to the residents of the area to be most affected. Ms. Watts said, “Residents in South Surrey are very engaged in their community and they take an active role in how they would like to see the community develop. When you’ve got that amount of opposition just for the gaming licence, you really have to sit back and take notice.” Why is it that Langley Township council continues to ignore the residents of Fort Langley when they attempt to take an active

role in stating how they would like their community to develop, and provide a petition with hundreds of signatures against the Coulter-Berry three-storey design? If I recall correctly, the opposition to the proposed request for bylaw exception was not about the design, but the height of the building. It is too bad that, in the past several years, Fort Langley residents have been ignored twice by council when the residents have dared to express their opinions on buildings that impact their community. Perhaps the Township mayor could ask Ms. Watts to conduct a workshop on listening to your electorate. After all, she gets it. Township council doesn’t. Jim Deacon, Fort Langley

Fort Langley history

View of past life ably interpreted

Dear Editor, As a longtime supporter of the National Historic Site and a founder of the “Friends of the Fort” volunteers, I must say that, though there have been misunderstandings or misrepresentations over the years, the members of the Fort have made and continue to make a real effort to “tell it like it was” [Big House exhibits leave out significant historical players, Jan.

1 Letters, Langley Advance]. In my experience, all the interpreters, First Nations and others, have made a visit to the site a real step back in history. In today’s world, the First Nations people are among our most valuable actors and participants. They take part in all the activities and events, and assist in telling and demonstrating our history. As a descendant of First Nations people, with a life-


No humour in thrown drink

Dear Editor, My daughter was waiting for a bus on Willowbrook Drive (outside of Willowbrook Shopping Centre) on Christmas Eve, after doing last-minute Christmas shopping. A car approached, stopped, and someone inside threw a full chocolate drink, hitting her in the chest. Fortunately, the drink was cold, but it covered her coat, pants, and purse. It was thrown with enough force to hurt her chest. She was unable to get a good description of the car or licence plate number. However, they know who they are. Why someone would stoop so low, especially on Christmas Eve, is beyond us. There was one other person, a young woman, at the stop. She, too, knows who she is. It is beyond us why she would think it was funny and laugh at my daughter. Instead, she could have helped. Jim Fleck, Langley


Choice choices seem strange

Dear Editor, I was listening to discussion of the dangers of driving and texting. It seemed strange to me: in this country, a person has the “choice” to keep or kill a baby in the womb, but when it comes to the “choice” of driving and texting, that “choice” must be taken. Chris Schouten, Langley


Important information missed

Dear Editor, I attended the townhall meeting about bird scare cannons used mainly in blueberry fields, and found your online article lacking [Calls for bird cannon solution, Jan. 18, www.]. Yes, two dozen or so people got up and spoke against the use of cannons, but there was no mention that more than 100 people there opposed cannon use. That’s misleading reporting. Anyone reading the article who hadn’t attended the meeting would get the impression only two dozen people were there. Not so. Cherry Groves, Abbotsford

time pass to the Fort, my thoughts are that we should just accept some of the information – or misinformation – from our grandfathers, and just enjoy each other today. All the pictures and stories in our Fort may depict that the attitude that the British “invaders” were superior to the natives. It was ever thus, and the interpreters at the Fort are responsible to convey this, even if it was and is a misguided interpretation of the situation. Like religion, history is recorded by man, and until the present technology became available, interpretation by the individual recorders, if possibly unreliable, still contains the basics of the past which are most valuable for us today. A visit to the Fort, the “Birthplace of B.C.,” gives people a view of life in the olden days, and a rest from the bustle of modern life. Bays Blackhall, Langley

City of Langley “The Place to Be!”

2013 FINANCIAL PLAN OPEN HOUSE The City of Langley will be hosting a Financial Plan Open House on Wednesday, February 6th at 6:30 pm at the Langley City Hall (20399 Douglas Crescent).

City Council will be holding a Committee of the Whole meeting at 7 pm on Monday, February 18th in the Council Chambers where a public presentation of the Financial Plan will be made.

Animal welfare

Council considers ban on chaining up Fido in yard A group of Lower Mainland residents want Langley City and other communities to ban dog chaining. by Heather Colpitts

Langley City is looking at updating its dog control bylaw after a presentation by the Campaign for Animal Rights Legislation asked it to ban dog tethering. Area animal rights advocates spoke at the Jan. 21 council meeting, offering up heart-wrenching tales of Lower Mainland dogs who spent their days and nights chained and with little or no human or animal contact. “Imagine the mind-numbing boredom of sitting in the same spot every day,” said Janet Olson. She noted that in addition to the physical and mental cruelty of tethering, some tethered dogs accidently strangle themselves when they become entangled or the chain/tether catches on something. The campaign is approaching municipal governments to ban unattended chaining/tethering. Burnaby, New West, Delta, Lion’s Bay, Victoria and Calgary as well as more than 200 U.S. communities have enacted such bans. Surrey and Richmond are considering bans. The campaign is lobbying municipalities to get antitethering laws on their books. “This cruelty is entirely supported” by federal and provincial law, she noted. Olson added that chained dogs are three times more likely to bite than unchained dogs and 88 per cent of the victims are children. “Feedback from local and US commun-

Dog fans facing charges of theft The group lobbying for tethering bans has a troubled history. Janet Olson, who is lobbying Lower Mainland municipalities to outlaw dog chaining/tethering, came to notoriety after being charged with stealing dogs around the Lower Mainland. Olson, founder and director of A Better Life, faces 36 charges. She was arrested in 2011. She is alleged to have taken dogs in Surrey, Coquitlam, Langley, Abbotsford, Mission, Vancouver, White Rock, Richmond, Delta and New Westminster starting around 2006. A preliminary inquiry is scheduled for June. Last autumn she spent six days in jail for violating bail conditions about not being involved in Better Life. She had also previously faced charges of violating her bail. Earlier this month charges were dismissed against four women involved with A Better Life Dog Rescue and accused of stealing tethered dogs from backyards. The Surrey RCMP launched an investigation after a number of pet thefts in the Lower Mainland where the suspects wore “Animal Welfare” uniforms.

Tree of life helps transition house Chamber wants

Shoppers helped raise money for Ishtar. by Heather Colpitts

On the 23rd anniversary of the murder of 14 women in the Montreal Massacre, four Langley businesses donated $4,461 to the Langley organization that combats violence against women and children. Four of Langley’s Shoppers Drug Marts took the money customers contributed through the annual Tree of Life Campaign and on Dec. 6, provided the funds to the Ishtar Transition Housing Society. “We thought that was fantastic,” said Ishtar’s donations coordinator Debbie Wood, when the retailers told the society about the donation. The society operates two transition houses where women and children can find shelter from abuse. It also provides a variety of programs and services for women, children, and men. The Shoppers Drug Marts in Aldergrove, owned by Ayaz Karmali, in Brookswood, owned by Eleanor Lee, in Murrayville, owned by Geoff Beamiss,

and Langley Crossing (Willowbrook), owned by Balhar Shergill pooled their efforts. They decided to devote their funds to Ishtar. The Tree of Life campaign, started in 2002, raises funds for causes related to women’s health and the causes can relate to body, mind and spirit. The four-week campaign is held each autumn across Canada at the 1,200 stores.

Since 2002, Tree of Life has raised more than $17 million. In 2012, more than 450 charities across Canada received funds and 100 per cent of the funds stay in the communities in which they are raised. “The success of the 2012 Tree of Life campaign can be attributed to the support and commitment of our loyal customers and staff,” said Shergill.

The stores offer for sale a leaf ($1), butterfly ($5), acorn ($10) and cardinal ($50). Customers could sign them and the leaves are used to decorate the stores. The Langley Crossing store had R.E. Mountain Secondary students paint the windows to complement the campaign. Find out more about the society at

The Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce plans to have a noticeable presence in the provincial election this May. Chamber president Angie Quaale announced at the Jan. 15 monthly meeting that the chamber has planned a campaign to reduce voter apathy. “Yes, there’s voter apathy out there, who knew?” Quaale quipped. She said that, despite the fact that businesses don’t have the vote, the business organization takes an active role in elections. “Our campaign will be called Your Vote, Your Voice,” she added. The most recent provincial election had a 52 per cent voter turnout in Langley. “Our goal is to increase voter turnout by five per cent,” Quaale said. The chamber has also invited the leaders of the four main political parties to each speak at a chamber luncheon, leading up to the election. More details on the Leadership Luncheon series will be announced as the election nears. The chamber will also host candidate debates and chamber members will receive a survey where they can submit questions for candidates. Those questions will be compiled to determine the members’ priorities.

Union gives boost to inner-city theatre program What’s in


Roxanne Hooper

A Langley-based labour union has just given a children’s theatre initiative a much-needed shot in the arm. Christian Labour Association of Canada (CLAC), through the union’s Building Communities Together program, presented $1,500 to Betty Huff Theatre Company in Surrey this week. Based on the recommendation of union member Devon Helm, a PCL Constructors Westcoast employee, CLAC picked the

school theatre company to receive these funds. In actuality, however, Helm said it was his mother-in-law who inspired the idea. Ruth Chomechko works as a youth care worker in the Surrey school district, and was discussing some of after-school programs available, including this one. About 50 inner-city kids are introduced to dramatic arts each year by this outreach program. CLAC’s Kevin Kohut personally presented the money and was given a tour of the theatre facility this week. “I was taken aback by the overwhelming joyful reception I received from the group,” Kohut said. In fact, the cast members were so

appreciative of the money, that they performed a scene from an upcoming show for Kohut, and invited him and Helm back to catch the full production.

Webinars aid in PST return

Businesses looking for help with the transition back to the PST can sign up for one-hour webinars covering the principles of the PST, registration, and new online service options.

Police are asking if you know these two men, suspected of shoplifting. by Matthew Claxton

Two men walked off with merchandise and the wallets of two Shoppers Drug Mart staff members in Brookswood this week. On Jan. 20, two men went into the store in the 4000 block of 200th Street, just after 9 p.m. Langley RCMP say they walked off with a number of items from around the store, and apparently entered a staff area and took two wallets. Store surveillance cameras captured images of two suspects, one heavyset and

wearing a toque, the other with a beard. Anyone who can help identify the men in the photos is asked to call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or CrimeStoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).

Early settlers’ joie de vivre celebrated at Fort The history of French speakers in early B.C. will be celebrated at this year’s winter festival.

Activities at Vive les Voyageurs


week of honouring the French Canadians who helped create Fort Langley – and B.C. – kicks off this month at the National Historic Site. The fifth annual Vive les Voyageurs Winter Festival runs on Jan. 26 and 27 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. “We’re trying to show our visitors that Fort Langley was a place where many French Canadians came,” said Mike Starr, the fort’s visitor services manager. The first fort was built in 1827 by the Hudson’s Bay Company, to trade for furs and other local goods with the nearby First Nations peoples. About half of the crew building the first palisade were Frenchspeaking. “The language that you would hear most often was French,” said Starr. The early settlement was almost as multilingual as the modern-day Lower Mainland. “You would hear French, English, Hawaiian, Chinook jargon… and then the language that you’d hear the women speaking most often was Halkomelem.” Halkomelem is the language of the Kwantlen First Nation and a number of their neighbours along the Fraser and on parts of Vancouver Island. Many of the married couples at the Fort included French-speaking husbands and Halkomelem-speaking wives. Chinook is a West Coast trading language that gave English words like skookum, still in use from B.C. to Oregon. The history that will be on display at the Vive les Voyageurs event will include a lot about those early settlers, but also some

discussion about the other French Canadian populations that have called B.C. home over the years. Park interpreter and booking coordinator Rita Bruneau is a born-and-bred British Columbian, who spoke French as her first language at home. She’s from Maillardville, a neighbourhood in Coquitlam that was established by French Canadian sawmill workers lured to the West Coast by plenty of work a century ago.

���I just love sharing the culture,” said Bruneau. There are a number of other employees at the park who speak French as a first or second language. Some of them learned it growing up in Quebec, while others are from places such as Benin or Morocco. The tours and information offered over the Vive les Voyageurs weekend will be thoroughly bilingual, for speakers of either language.

The events for the weekend include a bilingual tour of the fort, bannock baking, a fur trade wedding, Metis folk songs and dancing, and a fur trade wedding, along with a French 101 session. While the main program is on the weekend, many of its features, plus a few extra items for kids, will be taking place during the week prior. Students from around the Lower Mainland got a taste of West Coast Francophone life during the week,

Teacher joins record recitation attempt T James Johnson will be among many who’ll be reading Robbie Burns poetry in Vancouver on Friday. by Troy Landreville


ames Johnson has Canadian blood coursing through his veins, but a piece of his heart belongs to Scotland. Three years ago, the Langley teacher along with his wife Kim and children Emma, Sophia, and Isaiah relocated to the suburb of Currie, 20 minutes out of Edinburgh, as part of a work exchange. Johnson taught P.E. at Craigmount High School in Currie, while a teacher from Craigmount took his place at Langley Fundamental Middle and Secondary School. The 2009/10 school year was equally memorable and eventful. “Over there, I had some hilarious moments where it was like, ‘Okay, how could that possibly happen to me?’” Johnson related. Like the time Johnson rode his bike to school and took a wrong turn off a busy roundabout, which put him on the Edinburgh Bypass, the region’s version of the freeway where cycling is strictly prohibited. “Somebody honked at me, so I thought, that must be somebody from my school! Then I’m going along and someone else honked at me and I’m like, ‘Hey, how are you doing!’” Johnson said. By the time he heard a fourth horn sound, Johnson realized that he had lost his way. “The traffic was so fast, but there were no exits,” he said. Behind him, Johnson heard the “mee-mah, mee-mah” of a police siren. A rather stern-looking officer pulled Johnson over, then proceeded to drive behind him as an escort while Johnson pedaled to school.

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products, physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the American food industry. No sharks are #1 caught because of their bones/cartilage. Don’t let activists confuse you. Nick A. Jerch, President We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100’s of testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples:! Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON !My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA!I tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON!Cancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK.!For 32 years I cried barrels of tears. Was in and out of hospitals costing society tens of thousands of dollars. I have taken many thousands of pills that nearly killed me. Finally 3 bottles of Bell Shark Cartilage costing less than $100 stopped a lifetime of suffering without side effects. Eleanor Sauson, Shigawake, QC!Others write: Can walk again for hours…Climb stairs without hanging on to railing…First time in 15 years can sleep at night…Rheumatoid pain in joints down 90%, same for my sister. Bell relays 100% truthful user’s free speech. No need to make claims. No money is paid for it. No questions asked guarantee.

Heartburn Reflux By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD.

The USDA now recommends to eat 50% alkaline food (vegetables, legumes, salads, fruit). Health professionals suggest 80% alkaline food. Unfortunately, North American people eat 90% acidic food (meat, pasta, rice, bread, pastries, sweets, junk food). If you cannot change your diet to USDA’s 50% or closer to 80% alkaline food, consider to supplement with a natural health product that helps to increase your pH alkaline level close to a healthy #7. Ask for Bell Acidic Stomach/Alkaline Balance #39. It’s inexpensive, has no side effects and may eliminate the need for anti-acid pills many people take. As a bonus, an alkaline balanced body prevents many illnesses. See guarantee printed on box. ! Reflux gave me a sore throat and I could not sing in the church choir anymore. After taking Bell #39 I have no more reflux and rejoice in singing again. Helene Giroux, 65, Quebec, QC ! Have family history of heartburn. For last 10 years I suffered a lot with acid reflux. I told all family members about #39 being all natural, giving quick relief and having no side effects. Michael Fasheh, 49, Port Ranch, CA #39 ! Very happy with acid reflux relief. Last 4 years had increasing reflux despite taking antiacid products. I am also trying to eat more alkaline food. Grzegorz Smirnow, 43, Mt.

By Dr. Chakib Hammoud, M.H.,PhD.

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

Win over Express helps ’Men regain some mojo Jakob Reichert scored the game winner as Langley overcame a twogoal deficit to beat Coquitlam. By Troy Landreville and Brandon Astle

The Langley Rivermen were looking to halt one streak while extending another Friday night at Coquitlam’s Poirier Sports and Leisure Centre. They accomplished both goals by doubling the host Coquitlam Express 4-2. The win was the Rivermen’s third straight victory on visiting ice, and put an end to the team’s two-game losing skid. Langley needed a bounce back effort after suffering back-to-back defeats to Penticton and Surrey at home last weekend. During those two games, the ’Men were outscored by a combined 15-3 score. The Rivermen delivered, erasing a 2-0 first period deficit with four unanswered goals. “I was definitely happy. They [the Express] got two quick ones in the first period, and the boys had to bear down and work to get it done,” Rivermen head coach Bobby Henderson said. “They chipped away, stayed composed, and got the two points.”

James Barr got the nod for the ’Men, while Cole Huggins was the starting goalie for Coquitlam. The game did not get off to a good start for the Rivermen as Coquitlam’s Adam Rossignol opened up the scoring just over a minute in. Langley had some great opportunities to tie it up, but Huggins was stellar, stopping everything he faced. With time winding down, Ben Israel popped home his first goal in an Express uniform off a scramble in front of Barr to make it 2-0. The Rivermen had 11 shots, while the Express had seven after 20 minutes. Jakob Reichert The second period was a stalemate for Game winning goal the first 10 minutes before Langley finally got on the board at the 12:04 mark. Off a faceoff in the Coquitlam zone, Trevor Cope took the puck behind the goal before putting a perfect pass on the tape of Matt Ustaski, who slid home the Rivermen’s first goal of the contest. Thirty-five seconds later, Campbell scored the equalizer on a powerplay. Off another faceoff, Mario Puskarich fed the

puck to the side of the net to Campbell who made a power move on the backhand before rifling home his 11th of the year. The Express made a severe push to get their lead back at the end of the period, which included a breakaway from Travis Stephens that was stopped by Barr. With the third period deadlocked past the 10-minute mark, Jakob Reichert scored the eventual game winner with an incredible highlight reel effort on a Langley powerplay. The Langley native took the puck from his own blue-line, split the defence with a pretty deke, and roofed the puck over the shoulder of James Barr Huggins while falling. Winning goaltender It was his fourth of the season and could not have come at a bigger time. Coquitlam had an opportunity to tie it up off the stick of Zach Pryzbek all alone in the slot, but Barr made a clutch save to keep the score at 3-2. With under a minute to go, the Express pulled Huggins for the extra attacker, but the move did not work as Puskarich scored into the empty net for his league leading 28th marker of the season.







It was a character building, come-frombehind win and it was especially big with the standings the way it was. Langley is now three points up on Coquitlam for fourth place in the B.C. Hockey League Mainland Division. Barr earned the win, facing 30 shots while Reichert earned first star honours with a goal and an assist. Henderson was proud of the way his team played against a hungry Express foe. “James [Barr] was good when he needed to be,” Henderson said. “It was a good effort.” The Rivermen will look to improve upon their 16-16-1-5 record this weekend when they host the Salmon Arm Silverbacks on Friday (Jan. 25) and Trail Smoke Eaters on Sunday (Jan. 27) at the Langley Events Centre. Game time Friday is 7:15 p.m. while Sunday’s contest is a matinee, with a 2 p.m. opening puck drop. Sandwiched between those home games, the Rivermen travel to Surrey on Saturday to take on the Eagles at 7 p.m. Henderson said the Rivermen’s most recent win could give them some momentum going forward. “We’re taking it game by game but it’s definitely on their [the players’] minds,” Henderson said, of the Rivermen’s strong showing againts the Express. “They responded well after a tough weekend and this definitely helps their confidence.”

They shot the lights out in the first half and had the home crowd in the frenzy down the stretch, but in the end, the University of Calgary Dinos only managed to escape with a 93-92 over the Trinity Western Spartans Saturday night in the Jack Simpson Gym in Calgary. After shooting 60 per cent, including an otherworldly 81.8 per cent from beyond the arc, and putting up 60 points in the opening half, the Dinos carried a 15-point lead into the break. But the Spartans, led by a 36-point effort from third-year Spartans’ forward Tonner, gave the Dinos all they could handle in the late going as TWU piled up 28 points in the fourth quarter. The visitors had the ball with less than five seconds to go, but nearly 10 minutes and three time outs later, Tyler Linttell’s desperation jump shot at the buzzer fell off the front rim. “It was a game of two halves. I’m proud of how the guys played in the second half. We are trying to get over 20 assists in a game – when we do that we win. We had 10 assists in the second half, but it was a little too late,” TWU head coach Scott Allen said. The Dinos improve to .500 on the season at 7-7 and keep their playoff hopes alive in the Canada West Prairie Division, while the Spartans fall to 5-9 on the campaign and fifth place in the Pacific Division, one game out of a playoff spot. TWU’s top scorer Mark Perrin was held to 12 points on the night, more than nine points shy of his 21.5 season average.

The Dinos made 21 field goals including nine threes in the first 20 minutes. All night, though, the Dinos had all kinds of match-up issues with Jackson, who used his size and strength to power his way to a 36-point outing on 16-of-27 shooting from the field. Critically, however, Jackson fouled out with less than two minutes remaining, joining Perrin on the bench with five fouls for the final minutes. The pair accounted for 48 of the Spartans’ 92 points on the night and were unavailable for the final thrust. And yet the Spartans almost managed to win, anyway. Linttell hit a three with 35 seconds to play to bring Trinity Western within one, and an awkward fadeaway by Calgary point guard Jarred Ogungbemi-Jackson missed the mark on the other end of the floor to set up the extended finale. After the Dinos checked the ball out of bounds with 4.1 seconds left, both teams used a time out. With a foul to give, Ogungbemi-Jackson alertly committed an infraction to keep the Spartans from shooting the ball – eating up two seconds in the process. Then, after a final time out, Linttell was unable to get a good look at the game-winning shot as the Dinos’ bench exhaled. FINAL BUZZER: The Spartans head home to host the Mount Royal University Cougars this Friday and Saturday.

Spartans score Saints upset, TWU athletes impress was a record breaking day in preyed on by Eagles at WWU Saturday Edmonton for the Spartans track team. TWU had mixed results in enemy territory. What a difference a day makes, unfortunately, for Trinity Western University’s men’s hockey team. After an inspired 21 win over the previously unbeaten Selkirk College Saints the night before, the Spartans fell 6-2 to the host Eastern Washington Eagles at the EWU Recreation Centre on Saturday. Eastern Washington (67-0-1) scored four second period goals to pace the Eagles to their second win in as many games in the month of January. The Spartans (3-11-0-1) were unable to duplicate their effort from Friday and are now winless in four trips to Cheney, Wash. since EWU entered the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League in 2011. The Eagles’ Ryan Pajomila had two goals and two assists to lead EWU while Jake Flynn had two goals and an assist, and Uriah Machuga had three assists. Goaltender Jason Greenwell made 29 saves on the 31 shots he faced to earn the win. Jake Harcoff and Cody Stephenson scored for the Spartans while Matt Ius had two assists.

Spartans’ netminder Tim Zwiers made 28 saves in a losing effort. After Eastern Washington’s Flynn opened the scoring in the first period, the Spartans’ Stephenson tied the game just 27 seconds into the second period. But then the Eagles started to fly. Goals from Brandon Butler, Joel Blasko, and a pair from Pajomila put EWU up 5-2 by the end of the middle frame. With the score 4-1, TWU’s Harcoff scored with 4:10 left in the period to make it a two-goal game, but Pajomila’s late tally in the second sealed the deal. The Eagles’ Flynn scored with just under five minutes left in the third to round out the scoring.

Saints slayed

The Spartans saw their full game come together last Friday night. In a true David versus Goliath encounter, TWU handed the previously unbeaten Selkirk College Saints a 2-1 loss at the Castlegar Recreation Centre. The loss drops the topranked Saints to 13-1, while the win gave the Spartans a modest twogame winning streak. Second year goalie and 2011-12 BCIHL all-star Tim

Zwiers played exceptionally well as he was named first star after stopping all but one of the 48 Selkirk shots he faced on the evening to earn the one goal victory. “Tim played like he did when he first signed with us,” commented TWU head coach Dwayne Lowdermilk. “Every guy did his job and executed everything we have been working on. It was great game and a great game to watch.” The Spartans, who had 20 shots on the Saints’ net, got a goal from Cody Stephenson at 9:54 of the first period and a game winning powerplay goal from Trevor Beaupre with 40 seconds remaining in the second period to help secure the critical win. Selkirk’s loan goal came 17:35 into the third period off the stick of Connor McLaughlin.

For the second weekend in a row, Trinity Western University track and field athlete Liza Whitehead posted a quicksilver time in the 60-metre sprint. The Surrey native finished second at Alberta’s Golden Bear Open with a personal best time of 7.57 seconds, while Spartans’ Jamie Sinclair broke the TWU men’s pole vault record with a clearance of 4.40m Saturday at the Universiade Pavilion. The Spartans also set school records in both the men’s and women’s 4x200m relays. The women’s team, which featured Hazel Ross, Anastasia Pearse, Maya Daly, and Whitehead, finished third overall with a time of 1:43.23, which has the team fourth in the CIS rankings. The men’s team, which featured James Linde, Stephen Humphrey, Tunji Taylor-Lewis, and Sinclair, finished fifth with a time of 1:32.61, which has the team ninth in the CIS rankings. Trinity Western did not have previous records set in the 4x200m relay. Sinclair’s mark, which puts him in a tie for seventh in the CIS rankings and second amongst Canada West athletes, bettered Jesse Phillips��� record height of 4.34m, which he cleared last Saturday at the University of Washington Indoor Preview. Sinclair’s clearance was also more than 20 centimetres higher than the 4.19m he managed in the Indoor Preview. Whitehead’s time, which maintains her position atop the CIS rankings, was 0.06 faster than the time she clocked last Saturday at the Indoor Preview. The Spartans’ results were all the more impressive given many of them didn’t arrive in Edmonton until 2 a.m. Saturday morning. Due to the fog in Abbotsford, the Spartans’ Friday morning flights were delayed to the evening, forcing the alteration of schedules. “All in all, it was a good weekend, but not what we had gone to Edmonton to do,” said Spartans’ coach Laurier Primeau. “We made do with the events we had. We had some pretty remarkable results given the dramatic change in scheduling that resulted because of the fog in Abbotsford and a change in flight times.” The Spartans are back in action Jan. 26 at the University of Washington Invitational. • More at, click on “Sports”

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Your popularity grows. You’ll make solid advances socially, could make new friends, might be attracted to a potential mate (who probably comes from the friendship area). Romantic feelings (and creative surges, speculative urges) visit you Sunday. Exciting meetings occur late Wednesday night through Friday – these days also hold a possible or eventual upheaval, which could force you to choose between love and prestige, mating and career. (If someone new attracts you late Thursday night or daytime Friday, the upheaval is in your past, and this potential relationship is free of it.) Taurus April 20-May 20: Your world has shifted, from contemplation to action, from understanding to ambition. Pursue ambitions now into late February. (Then, the return of an old friend or social group will tell you the hard work’s over.) Until Wednesday p.m., a dilemma might force you to choose between a business or love partner and an ambitious goal. Rest, nurture your family Sunday, early Monday. Your romantic, pleasure-seeking, creative and speculative side blossoms Monday afternoon to Wednesday – you might be a bit confused Monday eve. Tackle chores (and angle for promotion) Thursday/Friday. Gemini May 21-June 20: You feel mentally alert. The few weeks ahead are a splendid time to travel afar, write, engage in intellectual activities (school, lawsuits, etc.) and fall in love – or move a present love to a nuptial stage. Sunday/Monday are busy with errands, calls, reports, details and variety – step lively, but carefully in relationship communications. (Unintended slights can occur.) Veer toward home and family, nature and rest Monday afternoon to Wednesday. All goes well, but health or chores nix a love or intellectual pursuit. Romance hits powerfully Thursday/Friday – if before 6 p.m. (PST) Wednesday, a future upheaval might shorten love’s life span; if you meet after this, or Friday daytime, love’s future looks long and bright.

Cancer June 21-July 22: The weeks ahead hold secrets and subconscious urges.Your intuition rises to the surface; your impressions are correct, especially about a Virgo or Gemini. Research, detective work can advance your standing with higher-ups. You might feel inexplicably drawn to someone in a lustful way. If you’re both single, and merge, you’ll have a very ambitious future, you’ll be a “power couple.” That doesn’t mean a loving couple, though. Sunday/ Monday are for earnings and spending: proceed carefully. Errands, trips, calls and news media fill midweek. Be home Thursday/Friday: much success! Leo July 23-Aug. 22: The accent remains on relationships, opportunities, new horizons – and on opposition and obstruction. The difference is largely up to you – smiles win, challenges don’t. Your energy and charisma stand out for all to see Sunday/Monday, but nothing gets done without humble co-operation. Chase money, add to your possessions Monday (unreliable) Tuesday (good, except for used items) and Wednesday (lemons, except 3 – 6 pm PST). Short trips, errands, paper work, and communications fill Thursday/Friday. All’s well – but avoid drawn out talks with co-workers. Saturday: home, family. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: A few weeks of hard work face you. A thread of romance survives just long enough to confront you with the question (Friday onward): do you want to marry this person or not? Lust and money are involved. Rest, lie low Sunday to Monday afternoon: be self-protective, ignore possible eggers-on. Your charisma and energy return Monday eve to Wednesday eve. Use this interval to solve problems and tackle formerly daunting chores. Good and bad luck mingle, so stay alert, respond to hunches. Take care with money, purchases, Thursday – but charge forth with these Friday before supper.

Jan. 27 - Feb. 2, 2013

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Romance, creative surges, pleasure forays, speculative ventures, games, risk and beauty – these fill the weeks ahead. You could fall in love – and it could lead to marriage. Respond to any romantic openings, glances, or notions now to Feb. 1. Your courage is an essential ingredient. (After Feb. 1, we return to “ordinary romance” – though the “wedding likelihood” remains high through June.) You feel optimistic, hopeful and popular Sunday/Monday. Retreat, rest and plan midweek. Your charisma and energy soar Thursday/Friday: you’ll walk the winning path! Shop, Saturday. Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Be ambitious – but very diplomatic – Sunday/Monday. Your hopes rise Monday afternoon into Wednesday eve: light romance, popularity, social delights and entertainment arrive, though they might be slightly clouded by your own (newly since last autumn) serious demeanour. Retreat Thursday/Friday: plan, contemplate, be charitable. Interface with government or head office Friday, not Thursday. Your energy and pizzazz rise Saturday. All week, your home and family grab your attention – be gentle, affectionate. Pay attention to real estate, security, retirement plans and nutrition. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The emphasis lies on communications, trips, visits, errands, paperwork, casual acquaintances and variety. (Chase that last one, for your curiosity, now to mid-February, might lead you to a place where you will later live – or more likely, curiosity will uncover something which helps your finances later.) A talk or trip can also lead to romance. Understanding and a mellow mood flow over you Sunday/Monday – gentle love is in the air, but others might be touchy. Be ambitious Monday eve to Wednesday eve. Plan what you’ll say to a higher-up or VIP. Hope, joy Thursday/Friday!

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: Chase money, add to possessions. The earnings area of your life is on a slow but unobstructed pathway to increase over the decade ahead (though things get interesting 2018 onward). Respond in kind: march ahead to make money. This is different than career: your “prestige side” wrestles with many unpredictable upsets and opportunities in the years ahead (as Thursday/Friday show). But it, too, is upside-prone. Don’t risk money Sunday/Monday. “Hot sex” might be interlaced with anger. Mellow understanding flows Monday eve to Wednesday eve. Choose: money or friends. Joy, Saturday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Your energy, magnetism, effectiveness and sense of timing remain high. Start significant projects, seek favours, see and be seen – impress people. Sunday/Monday might bring a relationship or opposition: step lightly. The “under world” of sex, finances, secrets, medical research and lifestyle changes drifts to the surface Monday eve to Wednesday. Right now, these succeed on a small basis, but not in the large picture.Bosses are skeptical.Careerwise, you need to show unwavering “dutifulness” to September 2015. Gentle love, understanding and travel Thursday/Friday. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Rest, recuperate, think and plan. Enjoy solitude. You’ve just entered a powerful, 15-year cycle that will emphasize/promote your ideas, needs and goals as never before.This demands thought and choice. Tackle routine chores Sunday/Monday. Don’t argue with anyone, nor push a machine to its limits. Relationships surge Monday eve to Wednesday eve. Though the general atmosphere won’t bring you anyone with whom you can share mental and emotional “oneness” – still, affection wins. Grab a late Wednesday opportunity. Life’s mysteries arise Thursday/Friday. Gentle love Saturday. • Reading: 604-886-4808
