Three high school students were only too glad they were able to help out a woman who collapsed near their school but please don’t use the “H” word. Dominik Beulens-Davis winces at the term hero but it’s a word that comes to mind after a March 5 incident outside the Aldergrove Kinsmen Community Centre. Tavis Allen added “I’d take it as a compliment but I don’t feel that I’m necessarily a hero.” Dominik, a Grade 10 student along with friends Tavis and Renato Palmieri, both in Grade 12, didn’t hesitate to help out in an emergency. Tavis and Dominik were sitting on a bench outside the community centre when the lunchtime bell rang at Aldergrove Community Secondary, right next door. “The bell went and we started walking towards the school and we heard a thump,” Dominik said. They turned to see a woman sprawled out on the ground a few metres away and a staff about the same time as the first member burst out of the comresponders who were able to take munity centre.

Deadly traps killing local animals

A coyote is the most recent animal found in a leg-hold trap in or near Langley.

Scan this page with

by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

The animal rescuers at Langley’s Critter Care Wildlife Society were called out Saturday to a disturbingly common complaint: an animal in a leg-hold trap. The owners of a blueberry farm in the 35000 block of Beaton Road in Abbotsford found a wounded coyote on Monday. His left front leg was caught in a padded leg hold trap. The wire that would have secured the trap had been torn loose from its original spot, and had wrapped around a bush. The coyote was unable to free itself. After trying to free the animal themselves, the owners called Critter Care. “He was emaciated, dehydrated,” said Angela Fontana, the senior animal care supervisor at the centre. The responders freed the coyote and took him back to their centre, but they had already decided he would likely have to be put down. “His leg was mangled; he had been trying to chew it off,” said Fontana. There was little left of the front leg, as the paw had been twisted around 360 degrees, the leg bone was completely broken, and the wound was rotting. The wound reeked of infection, Fontana said, and the animal had likely been trapped for between two and seven days when he was found. The coyote didn’t make a noise during the ordeal, as they are usually very quiet animals. “You could definitely see the fear in his eyes,” Fontana said. The animal was euthanized at the wildlife centre. Even if he had been able to survive his lack of food and water, the loss of a leg, and the infection, his future outlook would not

have been not good, Fontana said. “A three-legged coyote doesn’t stand much of a chance in the wild,” Fontana said. Most of Critter Care’s animals return to the wild. The centre has a few permanent resident animals, mostly too injured to ever be fully rehabilitated, or raised by humans, but they release everything from black bears to flying squirrels after medical care. The staff at Critter Care don’t know where the trap came from, or why someone in Abbotsford set it out. What they do know is that the use of traps has seen a strange spike around the Lower Mainland in the last year. In February an animal was found in a trap in Chilliwack, a few weeks ago the RCMP in Langley spotted a raccoon in a trap in Walnut Grove – Critter Care workers couldn’t locate it – and in January there was an incident in Richmond. “It’s been an increase and it’s shocking,” Fontana said. The Association for the Protection of FurBearing Animals, a B.C. advocacy group, is calling for provincial action in light of the

recent incidents. “These traps are being set in areas that are known to be frequented by families – including small children and pets – with no signage or warning,” said Lesley Fox, the association’s executive director. “These traps are not being monitored or set as required by law.” It’s unclear why traps are being set in suburban areas. In April last year, the Langley Advance reported on a family who were surprised to find a dead raccoon in a trap in their back yard. At the time, Conservation Officer Jack Trudgian told the Advance that laying a leghold trap requires a permit and a week of training with the BC Trapper’s Association. Experienced trappers would rarely set a trap in an urban area. Those caught using traps without a licence can be charged under the Wildlife Act and have their equipment seized. Local municipalities, including Langley Township, trap some nuisance animals, but it’s more common to use live traps.

Township

Council greenlights another property tax hike Township property owners will be seeing a moderate tax increase this year. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

After a brief debate, Langley Township council decided on a 2.79 per cent property tax increase at Monday night’s coun-

cil meeting. The council voted eight to one to pass the five-year financial plan, which includes the tax increase. Councillor Kim Richter was the sole voice of opposition, saying, “I’m not going to support the budget bylaw this year.” She cited a tax increase that is higher than the increase in the general cost of living. Of the 2.79 per cent increase,

1.1 per cent is to be set aside for infrastructure. Half will top up the road paving budget, and the other half will be placed in the Capital Infrastructure Renewal and Replacement Reserve. That fund is to be used for replacing major infrastructure, whether community centres or sewer lines, when they reach the end of their lives. The idea is to have a ready fund available for future needs,

rather than having to find new money for projects as they arise. Richter said she agreed with the concept of the fund, but felt the money should be found from existing sources, not from new taxes. Last year the council unanimously agreed on a 2.95 per cent tax increase. It was the first year in some time that the council had voted together on the budget.

Relay for Life

Students rally against cancer Brookswood Secondary is leading the pack among schools participating in this year’s Relay for Life. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

At 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Brookswood Secondary student Emily Peck was hoping to find enough students to fill six teams for the Langley Relay for Life. By the end of lunch at the Langley high school, she had nine teams of students ready to take part in the annual Canadian Cancer Society fundraiser. Peck, now in Grade 12, is a five-year veteran of the Langley Relay for Life, a 12-hour non-competitive walking relay to raise money for cancer research and patient support. She’s helping to organize the effort to make this a big year at a school that was already one of the most involved in the Langley Relay for Life. Peck has lost grandparents to cancer, and an aunt was recently diagnosed. “I want to make sure I’m part of the solution,” she said. She has already made a presentation, with her fellow students, to the school board, which is now putting together its own team. “We’re hoping that other schools get involved,” Peck said. The Brookswood students plan to challenge teams from other schools, to get a little friendly com-

A number of schools from around Langley have been involved over the years, including D.W. Poppy, Walnut Grove, and Credo Christian high schools, and Glenwood Elementary. The leadership students at Brookswood have really taken on Relay and made it their own at the school, said Shannon Todd-Booth, who works organizing

Relay for the Canadian Cancer Society. This year’s Relay will be held on Friday, June 21 at the McLeod Athletic Park track. The 12-hour event starts Friday evening and teams take turns walking the track until 7 a.m. Saturday morning, with remembrance of those lost to cancer mixed with more lighthearted events.

Langley Mounties pulled over almost 600 distracted drivers in a single month. The Langley RCMP’s crackdown on distracted drivers in February resulted in 594 drivers getting violation tickets, in the shortest month of the year. Officers in unmarked cars spotted and pulled over drivers spotted texting, with cellphones pressed to their ears, or committing other offences. “Driver distraction is the third leading cause of car crash fatalities in B.C.,” said Leanne Cassap, ICBC’s road safety coordinator for Langley. The accidents are pre-

ventable by simply paying attention, Cassap said. At least one driver is facing more serious issues than a ticket for distracted driving. After being flagged down for using a cellphone, a driver was found to be behind the wheel while prohibited, said Cpl. Holly Marks of the Langley RCMP. The man’s new Jeep Cherokee was impounded, and he is now facing a charge and towing and storage fees for the Jeep on top of his ticket. Distracted driving legislation came into force on Jan. 1, 2010 and says: • drivers cannot send or read emails or text messages; • drivers cannot make or take calls unless using a hands-free device;

Health top issue

Rundown

A Langley Conservative candidate is to work on health issues for his party.

Brookswood Bobcats guard Jessie Brown went for a layup while being pursued by Claremont Spartans guard Michelle Thalmann during opening round action of the B.C. high school senior girls Triple A basketball championships at the Langley Events Centre. The Brookswood Secondary squad defeated the visitors from Victoria 72-51 Wednesday afternoon. The 16-team tournament continues today and wraps up Saturday (March 7-9) at the LEC. The B.C. championship game is scheduled for Saturday at 4 p.m. The tournament is being run simultaneously with the junior girls provincial basketball championships which goes from March 6-9 at the LEC. The junior girls provincial final is Saturday at 1:45 p.m.

The Fort Langley-Aldergrove candidate for the BC Conservatives has been appointed to the partyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health committee. Rick Manuel, a retired superintendent of critical care programs for the B.C. Ambulance Service, has been appointed along with Mike McLoughlin of Kelowna and Dr. David Coupland of ParksvilleQualicum. McLoughlin will serve as chair of the committee, which is to find ways to deliver quality health care while controlling costs. McLoughlin is an MBA and is the coowner with his wife, a doctor, of two Kelowna-area medical clinics.

Be on alert for alertness deficit

The times are a-changin’. That’s not a philosophical reference to the Bob Dylan’s dire warning – it’s a simple reminder that we’re switching from Pacific Standard Time to Daylight Saving Time this weekend. But for some people, it should be taken as a dire warning, nonetheless. According to an ICBC survey, 34 per cent of B.C. drivers admit that their ability to drive safely is affected – and not in a good way – by the disruption in sleep cycle caused by the hour lost when the clocks are changed Saturday night or Sunday morning (officially, it’s at 2 a.m. Sunday that clocks are turned forward an hour to 3 a.m.). Given a statistical baseline that indicates that an overwhelming majority of drivers impossibly consider themselves “better than average” when it comes to driving safely, it’s probably safe to say that the actual number of drivers who are affected by the time change is also significantly greater than the 34 per cent who admit it. And we’re all probably more seriously affected than we care to admit. Even if only 34 per cent of drivers – one in three on the road at any given time – are less alert and slower to react to an emergent situation (like a kid darting across the road after a ball in our brightening spring weather, or a pedestrian stepping into the road unexpectedly, or a sleepy fellow driver missing a stop sign…), it should give serious pause for thought to the rest of us “aboveaverage” drivers who will need to defend ourselves against having them collide with us during the next week or two under the new time schedule, while all our circadian rhythms get back in sync. Indeed, the folks who admit to feeling a little less perfect because of time-change disruption may actually be less dangerous to the rest of us than those who refuse to consider the possibility that they may be affected. At least the 34 per cent are more likely to be on the alert for their own lack of alertness. – B.G.

Corridor plugged with traffic

Dear Editor, When my family moved into the 207th Street development in 2007, we read in your newspaper that the construction on 208th Street was approved without opposition at council, and they had no choice but to approve it. Wow! 1,600 units. I doubt anyone knew what impact this would have on the community. In Langley, everyone has at least two cars parked at their homes – sometimes four, but let’s work with two. That is 3,200 cars new to 208th Street.

Remember that Walnut Grove has no “Big Box” stores other than their grocery. The result is all of the traffic heads south towards the Walmart, Home Depot, Costco, and various other establishments not available in Walnut Grove. All of this results in traffic jams in the 204th/208th corridor, which is bumper to bumper daily. Clearly there has to be a solution to this situation, particularly when you consider the elementary school in the middle of this mess. Clayton Randle, Willoughby

Lack of laws goes too far

Dear Editor, Canada is one of only a few nations with no laws on abortion. In 1969 the Canada government legalized abortion. And in 1988, because of Dr. Henry Morgantaler, all laws on abortion were struck down. So for all nine months of pregnancy, for any reason at all, a women can get an abortion. We have gone to far in Canada. Canada needs laws to protect mothers and their babies. Dean Clark, Langley

Smoke alarm check could be a lifesaver

Spring is sprung, and that means it’s time to check your alarm batteries. Matthew Claxton/Langley Advance

Langley Township firefighters Krista Barton, holding a round smoke alarm, and Terry Litvan, with a rectangular CO alarm, encourage residents to use the “spring forward” clock rule as a reminder to check their home safety devices and change their batteries.

The switch to Daylight Savings Time marks the arrival of longer days and the promise of spring. It is also the perfect time to do a couple of small chores that may potentially save your life.

“As we prepare to ‘spring ahead’ our clocks, take a moment to test your smoke and carbon monoxide alarms and change the batteries, too,” said Krista Barton, Public Fire and Life Safety educator for the Township of Langley. “Roughly twothirds of home fire deaths happen in homes with no smoke alarm, or no working smoke alarm. Working smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in a home fire in half.” Smoke alarms have the power to save lives – but only if they are functioning properly. The devices need to be replaced every 10 years, and the batteries have to be checked and replaced regularly. Using the “spring forward” rule for clocks during the switch to Daylight Savings Time, which happens this year in the early morning hours of this Sunday, March 10, is the perfect reminder to do just that. “If you haven’t tested your smoke alarm lately, it may not be working and that is a risk you can’t afford to take,” Barton said. “Working smoke alarms give us early warning of a fire, providing extra time to escape safely.” But they can’t do their job “if we haven’t done ours,” she said, adding that alarms should be tested monthly to make sure the devices and batteries inside are working. “Test all the smoke alarms in your home, so you will know they are ready to protect you and your family if there is a fire.” The Township of Langley Fire Department also recommends installing carbon monoxide (CO) alarms – and replacing them every seven years. “Carbon monoxide is a colourless, odorless gas. Inhaling even small amounts of it can be harmful to your health, even deadly,” Barton cautioned. “You can’t smell or taste CO, so watch for warning signs of CO in your home, maintain and use fuel-burning appliances correctly, and know what to do if you suspect CO in your home.” Warning signs of CO poisoning include unexplained headaches, nausea, dizziness, drowsiness, confusion, stumbling, and fainting. Children, elderly people, and those with chronic disease may be more susceptible to CO poisoning. • More online at www.langleyadvance.com

Homes market still slipping

Home buyers are still staying away from the Lower Mainland housing market. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Real estate sales remained sharply down across Langley and the Fraser Valley in February, statistics from local realtors show. In February, there were 913 sales of all types of homes from North Delta to Abbotsford and Mission, according to the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board (FVREB). That’s down from 1,269 in the same month in 2012, a 28.1 per cent decline. The average price of a home across the region dropped by 4.8 per cent year to year, to $471,767 from $495,345. The total number of sales from the first two months of the year is down 26 per cent, and while listings have declined as well, they are only down by 6.7 per cent.

John Cummins In their traditionally progressive Conservative leader fashion, folks at the Greater Langley Chamber of Commerce are taking a leadership role in educating local residents in advance of the May provincial election. To help achieve this goal, chamber president Angie Quaale was excited to announce a leadership luncheon Adrian Dix series. BC NDP leader The chamber is inviting leaders of the three major political parties to speak at Newlands Golf and Country Club, with Conservative’s John Cummins kicking it off Friday, March 15. NDP leader Adrian Dix is next up, speaking Monday, March 18, and a Christy Clark date has yet to be confirmed for BC Liberal leader and premier Christy Conservative leader Clark. “Throughout the period leading up to the election, we will continue to provide information on critical issues as part of our Your Vote – Your Voice campaign to address voter apathy,” Quaale said. Tickets are $35 per luncheon, or $75 for all three, including soup, sandwich, coffee/tea, and dessert. Registration is required in advance by calling the chamber at 604-530-6656 or emailing info@langleychamber.com.

HAFI adapts homes for B.C. seniors and people with disabilities Brenda has always been an active woman. However, recent health issues including osteoarthritis in her left knee and losing kidney function have slowed her down. Her mobility is limited and she is now on dialysis three days a week. To adjust to her changed circumstances, Brenda sought help with her daily living activities. Part of that help came from the Home Adaptations for Independence (HAFI) program offered through BC Housing. Launched in January 2012, the HAFI program provides financial assistance to help eligible low-income seniors and people with disabilities adapt their homes so they can continue to live independently. Brenda applied for a new walk-in bathtub because she couldn’t safely get out of the tub on her own. Walk-in tubs include additional safety measures such as anti-slip floors, grab bars, and a very low step in. Home adaptations may also include handrails in halls or stairs, ramps for

easier access, easy-to-reach work and storage areas in the kitchen, lever handles on doors or faucets, walk-in showers, and bathtub grab bars and seats. Brenda is a strong advocate for the program and has even shared HAFI brochures with nurses in the renal unit where she undergoes dialysis. If you or someone you know is having difficulty performing day-to-day activities safely and independently – the HAFI program may be able to help. In 2012, HAFI provided financial assistance to more than 550 seniors and people with disabilities, making it possible for them to continue living in the safety and comfort of their home.

Trash tracking showing a decline City residents are diverting more waste into composting and recycling programs. by Heather Colpitts

hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Garbage and recycling programs are resulting in Langley City residents producing less waste. Numbers comparing the first two months of 2013, when a kitchen/ green waste program started, with the same timeframe for 2012 shows that residents put out about 45,000 fewer kilograms of garbage.

In January and February of 2012, residents threw out 316,510 kilograms of garbage. That figure for the first two months of 2013 was down to 174,190. City engineering director Gary Vlieg said that’s a 45 per cent decrease in material destined for the landfill. A lot of that is because of the new green can program. Kitchen waste, including food, soiled paper products, bones, meat, dairy, and other items that previous went into the landfill, are now being composted. “In 2012 we were only collecting

yard trimmings,” Vlieg explained at the March 4 council meeting. The 2012 amount was 58,900 kg for yard trimmings and 126,970 kg for the first two months of this year. Recycling amounts were 202,260 for January/February 2012, rising to 231,700 kg in the blue box for the same months this year. Residents are not restricted in the amount of green can material and blue box recycling they can put out each week. With the reduced amount of garbage expected with recent program changes, the City has moved to garbage collection every second week.

A computer scam is locking up the data of area residents, while using the name of the RCMP.

Art Kern’s computer has been seized by scammers.

Art Kern found an alarming message on his computer screen when the machine suddenly locked up a few days ago. It accused the Langley resident of committing computer crimes, listing a number of possible violations, everything from illegally downloading music to distributing child pornography. “It really bugs me that I’d be called a child pornographer,” Kern said. Emblazoned with the logos of the RCMP and a number of major Canadian companies, the single page of text informed him that he was about to be charged with various crimes. “Your personality and address are currently being identified, a criminal case is going to be initiated against you under one or more articles specified above within the next 72 hours,” reads the notice. “Anyone who receives Of course, he could email communications just pay a $100 “fine” and the problems would to ‘release’ or ‘unblock’ go away, promises the their computer should message. His computer report [it] to their local would be turned back on and he would not be police services.” put on trial. International Cyber Security A suspicious Kern Protection Alliance immediately checked with the Langley RCMP and confirmed that the entire thing was a scam. Dubbed “ransomware,” the crime involves a hack that locks up a victim’s computer. It was last seen in September in Langley and seems to have made a return engagement, according to Cpl. Holly Marks, a spokesperson for the local RCMP. There have been a few cases locally in recent weeks. Even if the victim of the ransomware pays up, their computer will not be unlocked, Marks warned. The only way to fix the problem is to take the computer to a technician and have the malevolent software removed. Kern doesn’t know exactly how his computer got infected – he’d run his anti-virus software the morning before the computer locked up. Several agencies, non-profits, and private corporations are being impersonated by the scam artists. Logos from Canadian Tire and gas companies are found on the fake notification. One of those is the International Cyber Security Protection Alliance, which has put up a warning on its own site about the malware: “The name of the ICSPA and various law enforcement agencies are being used in an attempt to trick citizens into making payment to criminal groups who are carrying out a ransomware scam. Anyone who receives email communications to ‘release’ or ‘unblock’ their computer should report their concerns to their local police services and under no circumstances pay any money.” Anyone who has been a victim of the computer scam can contact the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200 with questions. Kern said he just wants more people to know about it, so they can avoid losing their money to thieves.

on CTV. “Sunee Dhaliwal is definitely one of those comedians that you will be saying a few years from now ‘I saw him when...’,” said the show promoter. “The sky is the limit for this young man.” He’s being joined by Langley’s own Susan Hansen, Dick Thompson, and Ian Imrie. Imrie, for instance, was born and raised in Ontario and first started with standup comedy while in university. In 2003, he packed up everything and moved west, bringing his sense of humour with him. Now a husband and father, Imrie is still hamming it up, and in the process of putting together a 2013 tour called Comics on the Run. “It may very well be the tour that takes comedy to a whole new level,” Mawhinney said. “Take a peek at what that Ian guy has going on and share the good word.” The first in the monthly comedy series at Mustangs on Saturday, March 9. Doors open at 5 p.m., with the show at 8:30 p.m. There is no reserve seating, and tickets are $10 at the door.

Recording artist returns to studio Langley’s own Karen Lee Batten performs live in Aldergrove Friday. by Roxanne Hooper

rhooper@langleyadvance.com

A

country bar in the country should showcase country artists. Sounds logical. And that is the thinking behind a growing list of live performances being booked into the Mustangs Bar & Grill in Aldergrove. Willoughby’s Karen Lee Batten, a threetime BCCMA female vocalist and one of the top 10 finalists for the 2003 Canadian Idol, is kicking off the program this weekend, said bar promoter David Mawhinney. “Karen Lee brings her dynamic talent to any stage including the sought after Calgary Stampede premier Nashville North Stage in 2009, 2010 and 2011,” he said, noting she’s opened for country legends such as Big & Rich, Oakridge Boys, Lonestar, Emerson Drive, Aaron Lines, Ian Tyson, Deric Ruttan, and Gord Bamford. When asked what one stage she would never forget, Batten’s reply was her tour to The Persian Gulf when she went to play for the Canadian troops. “It was truly the most amazing experience I have ever had, they were so grateful to us for coming when in actual fact they touched our hearts so much greater then what we did for them... such amazing people,” she said. Back in the studio now, Batten is very excited to be recording her next project. “I can’t even tell you how excited I am to be working on this album. From the team of talent that I get to collaborate with to watching it all come together from the beginning to the end, that’s the most amazing part for me... I just can’t wait to get it out to everyone!” Batten is playing Friday at Mustangs, 3227 264th St. in Aldergrove. Doors open at 8 p.m. with Batten on stage at 9 p.m.

fforts are afoot to turn an Aldergrove bar into an entertainment mecca, with David Mawhinney making it his new mission in life. The long-time bar promoter has teamed up with Lucky Dhaliwal, the owner and general manager of Mustangs Bar & Grill, to convert the Aldergrove liquor establishment into a “must see, must be there” place for the Fraser Valley. Introducing a new comedy series once a month, as well as performances by more live country bands, are part of the way Mawhinney hopes to help distinguish Mustangs. “I have been running country bars since 1996,” said the disc jockey and sports announcer, who recently returned to the entertainment industry as a promoter after a seven-year hiatus. LIkewise, Mustangs was on hiatus – one might say. The facility at Fraser Highway and 272nd Street in Aldergrove reopened about 10 months ago, returning to its previous name, adding a full-time mechanical bull, featuring a 200-inch high definition television, reopening the kitchen, and turning up the heat on the entertainment end of the business, Mawhinney said. He noted that during the past few years that bar changed hands and names a Todd Richard, etc. We want to change few times, being known for a while as that and embrace the fantastic talent we Cowboys, Rehab, and SOHO – and prihave all around us.” marily catering to a younger clientele.

Langleyites are among those who have auditioned for the Amazing Race Canada. by Heather Colpitts

They met in baseball as kids back in 1995 and remained friends. That friendship would be put to the test if Graham Bath and Andrew Spindor are chosen for the Amazing Race Canada. The reality TV show is being created by CTV to air this year. The contestants are expected to travel about 9,000 kilometres across Canada. Everyone who auditioned still awaits word on which teams have been chosen. “Although our lives have led us down differing paths, it’s been our sense of humour, our passion for success, and our deep Langley roots that have kept us connected,” Bath said. In their audition video, Bath is shown benchpressing Spindor. The audition

tape is sprinkled with a healthy dose of humour from both as they make their pitch. “I’m sort of the brains of the operation,” joked Spindor. Bath retorts with a fake story about Spindor’s nickname Spooner. “This guy was an elite ukelele player,” Bath noted. “Who plays the ukelele?” The Brookswood Secondary grads are active and outdoorsy, a definite plus in the show that involves travelling through lots of climates and conditions, solving riddles. The video was made through Spindor’s business, Habitat Recording, after the talented musician went into that industry. Bath graduated from UBC, spent a summer doing wildland firefighting and did a three month international trek. Kristina Linden and Luca Patrk have also posted a video. They say they were raised in Langley and now live in Vancouver. CTV bought the rights to make the Canadian version based on the American show Amazing Race which has been on for 21 seasons.

Mountain music proves popular The public is invited to the annual spring concert of R.E. Mountain’s music department. by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Spreading the word

Tiller’s Folly photo

Tiller’s Folly, which has its roots in Langley, was one of the bands chosen for the CBC Music Searchlight Contest. Word came March 5 that the band didn’t make it through to the finals, though more people were exposed to the music. The band has also just released its newest recording, Go the Road and continues to tour its folk-based music.

If it’s spring, it’s time for R.E. Mountain Secondary music students to go pop. The 10th annual Spring POPS Concert comes around March 13 starting at 7 p.m. in the school’s main gym. Under the musical direction of David Mills and Jen Williams, the students will perform “POPular” film and TV music in a relaxed and informal setting.

This year’s concert will also feature special guest Andrew Porier (Vancouver Symphony Orchestra trombone player), and REM’s very own award-winning Grade 11 student Ben Su (piano), who just returned from performances at Carnegie Hall. “Seating will be at candlelit tables so guests can enjoy a beverage, gourmet appetizers, and dessert along with the show,” Mills said. Regular tickets cost $20 for adults and $10 for students and seniors. There are a limited number of Dress Circle seats (front row tables with deluxe seating for $25 per ticket). There are no children’s tickets available for the Dress Circle. Other seats are $20 for adults or

$10 for children or students. “Due to the huge success of last year’s concert, seating has been increased to accommodate nearly 350 guests,” he noted. As well, there will be a 50/50 draw and have been items donated for a silent auction. Still people shouldn’t wait to get their tickets. Orders can be placed by calling the school at 604-8883033. “Our music department is now the largest in Langley, and one of the best in the province,” Mills noted. “Our senior jazz band just won its division at Surrey’s Envision Jazz Festival. There are three music tours this year alone; California, Banff for the Rocky Mountain Music Festival, and the Whistler Music Festival.”

Mulch major problem solver

E

very year, some gardening challenges are absolutely predictable here in southern B.C.: weeds germinate in spring, there are long weeks of drought in summer, and winter brings chilly nights in which unprotected plants may die. And there’s always a plant that needs feeding. That’s why mulching is one of the best investments we can make. Organic mulching replenishes the soil in the same way that nature does. It attracts earthworms, holds on to moisture, suppresses weeds, helps fertilize soil, and helps cool the ground in summer while warming it in winter. One of the most useful mulches for flower beds is composted bark mulch. It’s not especially nutritious, but is relatively neutral, and fine enough to fit snugly around delicate plants. People with tiny gardens can buy it in bags, while large-scale gardeners can get truckloads. How well it suppresses weeds (as with all plantbased mulches) depends how thick you spread it. Another factor is how tall the plants are in that area. Five centimetres (2”) is a good starting point for mulch: thicker spreads can sometimes be left for several years, but perennial weeds (like dandelions and dock) must be removed completely, or they’ll re-grow every time. Some gardeners use mushroom manure. It can have considerable food value, but it varies, as can its alkalinity. It’s usually far too alkaline for acidloving plants like rhododendrons or blueberries. Most mushroom manures are not organic. Straw can be a good mulch for taller crops in vegetable gardens – unfortunately most straw has lots of weed seeds. Hay usually has still more. Leaves, especially when shredded into leaf-mold,

are a wonderful, free mulch for flower or vegetable gardens. In shrub gardens, you can deposit leaves as you rake them in fall, but they break down faster if shredded. Dumping them in a garbage container and running a weed-whacker over them is one useful way of shredding them. Grass clippings are full of nitrogen for vegetable gardens, and do a great job of suppressing weeds and attracting worms. But they get hot when piled, so should be kept thin around tender seedlings. In early-to-mid-spring, grass clippings can attract slugs, so susceptible seedlings need protection. But by summer, when watering becomes necessary, a grass mulch is a life-saver for the plants. Living mulches are sometimes used by organic gardeners. White Dutch clover is one. It is the same clover found in some lawn mixes because it’s a legume that fixes nitrogen in lawns. It makes a low-growing path that needs very infrequent cutting – though clover seeds can blow and germinate in any surrounding un-mulched soil. I have seen gardeners mulch paths through veggie gardens with crop debris. The paths I saw included pea vines, bean vines, and corn leaves and stalks chopped small. Alpine gardeners often use gravel and small stones or rocks as mulch. Sand with nutritious material underneath can

Chilliwack goaltender Mitch Gillam was tested early and often, and made a few key saves in the opening 10 minutes of action. The Rivermen eventually snuck one by him on a goal from Nathan Craft at the 10:47 mark. The goal came courtesy of Ben Butcher, who took the puck into the Chiefs’ zone with speed before spotting a streaking Craft going to the net. Butcher put it off Craft’s stick and past Gillam. Less than four minutes later, Azurdia put away his 18th goal of the year. Sutliffe took a pass in the slot and fired a

shot that rebounded right to Azurdia, who put the puck into the empty goal. In the late stages of the period, Langley found itself in penalty trouble and was down two men for close to two minutes. Chilliwack’s Trevor Hills put away the Chiefs’ first of the game off an Austin Plevy rebound to cut the home team’s lead to one. In the second period, the Chiefs erased the two-goal deficit on a goal from Josh Hansen, who was able to jump on a rebound off a long point shot and bury his 21st of the year. The Rivermen would continue to make their way to the penalty box as they were handed six straight penalties in the middle frame. During his teammate Turner Popoff’s fourminute penalty, Mitch McLain had two shorthanded breakaways on the same shift, but could not sneak one by Gillam. On the next shift, Campbell received a breakaway pass from Puskarich and the Port Coquitlam native finished off a pretty move to put his team up 3-2. The lead would be shortlived as Chilliwack’s

Spencer Graboski scored the equalizer on the next shift as he wired home a shot from the slot on a great feed from Phil Zielonka behind the goal. In the third period, the Rivermen capitalized on their fifth chance on the power play. Mark Whiteley flicked a long shot from the point through a maze of bodies, and the puck drifted into the net. The Chiefs were pretty much held at bay for the remainder of the third period and came up short as Barr turned away all nine

shots he faced.

Doubleheader

The Boatmen have two games left in their regular season, and both are against Chilliwack. They host the Chiefs tonight (March 7) at the LEC, with a 7:15 p.m. opening faceoff.

Junior B hockey

Pilots blast Kodiaks Abbotsford routed Aldergrove in the opener.

Losing 8-1 to the Abbotsford Pilots wasn’t how the Aldergrove Kodiaks envisioned kicking off the second round of the Pacific Junior Hockey League playoffs. The Pilots showed why they led the Harold Brittain Conference with a 32-10-0-2 record during the regular season by trouncing the Kodiaks in Tuesday’s opening game of the conference final. The game at Abbotsford’s MSA Arena was close until the final period, when the Pilots scored six unanswered goals, including three power play markers. The Kodiaks had no time to dwell on the loss. The two teams met at Aldergrove Arena last night (March 6) for game two of the series. The contest got underway after the Langley Advance went to press Wednesday afternoon.

Medal time

Everybody’s a winner in Langley United youth soccer as Britton Roxburgh held the medal that every grassroots player receives at the end of the winter season. Britton was all smiles despite rain pelting down on him and his fellow players. Roughly 1,100 boys and girls received a medal at the recent Mini World Cup, which drew about 3,000 spectators. During the event, 1,500 hot dogs were sold. Soccer now takes a break over March before spring soccer starts in April. New players are always welcome and girls and boys aged U5 and older are invited to try soccer as part of Langley United. Registration information can be found online at www.luysa.com.

KLOMPAS, Pearl

After a very sudden and brief illness our Pearl passed away Friday, February 22 at Langley Memorial Hospital. Pearl left life much as she spent it, peacefully, with grace and dignity. Born July 10, 1920 in Blue Sky, Alberta she was the third of 3 girls born to Wilfred and Mary Webb.Too little to keep up with her sisters and with her younger brother (not on the scene yet) she spent a great deal of time with her Dad, helping and keeping him cheerful; she was his little Pearly. In many ways she remained Pearly for the rest of her days, smiling and helpful. The family moved throughout Alberta, eventually settling on a farm just outside Edmonton. Pearl finished high school there and began her career of office work with medical doctors, accountants and a bank. It was in Edmonton where she met her husband to be Bill. The two of them married there and established a family with the birth of their son. Bill’s work involved a transfer to Vancouver, so they reestablished in Delta. So began many more happy years, with the forming of many new friendships, the maintenance of old ones and lots of very welcome visits. Pearl resumed her career as a roving school secretary for the Delta school board, where she worked at several different schools in the North Delta, Sunbury area. It was an ideal position for her; she soothed skinned knees and bruised feelings while providing support for hundreds of educations. Dealing with children was where Pearl shone, whether it was playing with her little brother, raising her son, days given to her beloved grandchildren, cuddling her great-granddaughter, nurturing her many nieces and nephews, Sunday School students or the kids of friends and neighbours. She left them all better. Her patient, kind nature helped many people. After retirement she moved to Langley. Always active, she became a member of the board of directors of her condo association, was busy in her church through various groups and she resumed teaching Sunday School. Pearl was also very involved in the local seniors’ association, where she continued to play with and serve children, although by then the children were in there 70s at least. People who know these things tell us the best predictor of a happy life is if you think of your mother as kind. Thank you Mum, Grama for all the happiness you gave us. A memorial service will be held at Sharon United Church, 21562 Old Yale Road, Langley on Sunday, March 10 at 1:30pm.

Cancer June 21-July 22: Intellectual, travel, cultural, religious or philosophical elements continue to guide you, especially Sunday/Monday, when these – and gentle love – tug your sleeve. However, start no new projects nor relationships before March 17 – stick with ongoing or past situations. Ambition kicks in Tuesday to Thursday noon – all looks smooth, but a “contrary element” lurks – perhaps a co-operator or partner is against the creative elements you’ve introduced, but isn’t ready to say so, yet. Social joys enter Thursday p.m. to Saturday – popularity, wish fulfillment, light romance arrive. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: A doorway to mystery faces you – enter to collect clues about your subconscious urges, directions, for the whole decade ahead. E.g., visit a psychic, counsellor or advisor. Although you should not begin any financial project (or ANY important project!) before March 17, this is an excellent week – especially Sunday/Monday – to research, investigate and study the arenas you want to operate in. E.g., study investments, but make no choices before March 17. Your sexual urge climbs. Wisdom, gentle love visit you midweek. Show higher-ups what you can do, Thursday p.m. to Saturday. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Relationship’s “meaning” stands before you Sunday/Monday. You might renew a former link, in love or practical areas. But don’t begin a new relationship – it would not last long, and be rather fruitless. Don’t begin anything new before March 17. Life’s mysteries, sexual drives, financial astuteness, health diagnoses, dreams and subconscious urges fill midweek. (You’ve noticed, probably, that sex has changed – a friendly but unpredictable note, and some stress, has entered this area. A far different relationship awaits you, and this is part of the river pushing you toward it.)

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Continue to rest, lie low, and contemplate the mysteries of the universe, especially Sunday/Monday, when you can be extra tired. (These days might also bless you with a government-related breakthrough, an invitation to join management, or success with/in an institution. Your energy rises nicely Tuesday/Wednesday: tackle chores – more correctly, obligations – that have daunted you previously. (E.g., visiting an unpleasant family member.) Chase money Thursday eve to Saturday – your luck’s mildly good, except early Friday. All week, avoid new starts. Seek (or give) therapy, advice. Taurus April 20-May 20: Wishes can still come true, Taurus, if they connect to the past – e.g., hope I can meet that attractive person again. An old social group might return. Life was once good, and it will be good again. Sunday/Monday, your popularity, optimism and delight grow! But retreat for a second wind Tuesday to Thursday noon; rest, contemplate (don’t plan) and deal with agencies, government, head office, admin tasks. Your energy surges Thursday afternoon to Saturday – your charisma gives you clout, the ability to get things done. Call in favours. But DON’T start new ventures or relationships. Gemini May 21-June 20: Start nothing new. The accent remains on your career, standing in the community, dealing with bosses, VIPs and parents – and your own role in these. (E.g., how’s your parenting going?) You’re ambitious, and Sunday/Monday hint at the birth of a new career venture. But let this “new” venture be a resurrection of a past, perhaps abandoned goal – and enlist familiar people, not new faces. E.g., if you’ve wanted to operate heavy machinery for some years, now you get the chance to proceed. Happiness, popularity, optimism fill midweek. Retreat for a good rest Thursday eve to Saturday.

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Wrap up outstanding chores this week – start Sunday/Monday, don’t delay! March 20 will begin a month of new opportunities, horizons, and perhaps, relationships. Do the work now, so you’ll be free to pursue these bright new things when they come. Finish only – don’t start anything (or anybody) new before March 17. Midweek gives you a clue about late March/April: relationships flow smoothly (though, almost unseen, a deep change in your home affects relationships, and will, all this decade). Mysteries, sexual urges, financial exigencies fill Thursday noon onward. Someone’s coming! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: Midweek (TuesdayThursday) brings chores, hints that a major new task or employment lies ahead. But start nothing before March 17. Meanwhile, romance, creative urges, pleasure and beauty, risk and reward fill this week. But let it be an ongoing romance (or contact an old flame). In risk, taking a position in the stock market, then clearing it in a day or three, wins – but buying to hold can disappoint. All these wonderful things – romance, creativity, winning, et al – blossom splendidly Sunday/ Monday. Relationships fill Thursday noon to Saturday. Be flexible, diplomatic and eager. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The accent continues on home, nest egg, security, kids, nutrition, retirement, gardening and nature. Avoid new starts in these or any area this week. Instead, especially Sunday/Monday, renew family contacts, shore up old landscaping, restart abandoned repairs, or deal with ongoing situations. Your romantic (and beauty) sensors come alive Tuesday to Thursday: treat this as a hint of what’s to come (very soon, after March 19) rather than as “the thing itself.” If you’re in a relationship, enjoy it! Work and health concerns arrive Thursday noon to Saturday: all’s smooth.

March 10 - 16, 2013 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The accent continues on communications, details, paperwork, applications and reports, short trips, casual acquaintances. This is a talk period, not a do period. DON’T start anything, especially Sunday/Monday, and especially in these zones. E.g., don’t buy a mobile phone or order printed stationery, etc. This is not merely a delay: it hints, to a degree, that you simply should not be expanding this area at all this year. Sink into your home, soul, deepest thoughts midweek: contemplate where you’re really going, what’s really important. Romance strikes Thursday p.m. to Saturday! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: Money, earnings, costs, possessions remain in focus.Watch these all week, but do not attempt to expand them – don’t ask for a raise, or purchase anything big (lemons abound). Sunday/ Monday might spark a “redo” of an old money project. Midweek brings friends, talks, trips, and all sorts of minor interesting bits and pieces of information: be a sponge, soak up facts, figures. Contact old friends, visit old ‘hoods. Thursday p.m. to Saturday finds you a bit weary, so take naps, rest, be with family, visit your garden, contemplate. Soon, you’ll become ultraactive! Romance? Soon! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: Your energy and charisma remain high – in fact, they soar Sunday/Monday: you’re the star, and everybody knows it! This doesn’t mean you should command everyone to jump into a new project – start nothing major before the 17th. So enjoy this week. Aim your efforts toward collecting past debts and favours (Tuesday to Thursday) and re-connecting with those you might have slighted or ignored in times past (Thursday p.m. to Saturday). Midweek gives you a hint of a money trend that will apply now to late April – more will pour in, and more out: remain aware, be a disciplined spender. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 604-886-4808
