Summer Games chair Arne Olson joins the community in welcoming close to 1,400 athletes and coaches to Langley this weekend. by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

A retired commercial airline pilot, Arne Olson used a unique analogy when describing his mindset heading into this weekend’s 2013 BC Special Olympics Summer Games in Langley. Olson, the Games chair, compared his emotions to easing a jet down to an eventual landing. “This morning… I realized I had the same feeling that I had in my previous work as an airline pilot flying overseas and going into a challenging airport,” Olson shared with the Langley Advance Monday during an interview inside a bustling Games office in downtown Langley. “You reach up, you put the throttles back to idle, and you start your descent. At that point, you’ve studied the approach, you’re ready for all of the eventualities and different things that may arise… the unknown. It’s the sense of ‘Let’s do this.’ We’re ready. I wouldn’t call it nervousness; I’d call it anticipation.” The scope of these provincial Games – which kicks off tonight (July 11) with the opening ceremonies at the Langley Events Centre and winds up this Sunday, July 14 – is huge. A total 1,036 athletes and 338 coaches from 55 communities across B.C. are taking part in 11 sports including athletics, swimming, five- and 10-pin bowling,

The ceremony gets underway at 7 p.m. in the LEC’s arena bowl, with athletes from each region parading into the venue with their teammates. “We’ve been working hard on what’s been an outstanding opening ceremonies,” Olson said. Special events coordinator Shirley Stewart said the event includes local entertainment including nine-year-old dancer and recent Langley Has Talent contestant Dante Arias, music from The SeaBillys, and a short set by “Almost Elvis” Steve Elliott. Dignitaries including MP Mark Warawa, Fort Langley-Aldergrove MLA Rich Coleman, Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese, and Langley City deputy mayor Gayle Martin are anticipated to attend.

Training in place for train crashes

Emergency planners say they’re prepared for the next time a train derails. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Langley has seen its share of serious train derailments over the years, but local officials say they’re as prepared as possible for the next one. “There’s no doubt, dangerous goods go through,” said Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese, speaking of the oil and chemicals that traverse Langley’s rail lines every day. In the wake of the tragedy in Lac Megantic, Que., questions have been raised about the safety of rail lines nationwide. While it seems there are some things that just can’t be predicted, Froese said Township firefighters and emergency planners are drilled, and the Township has good communication with the rail firms. In recent years, there have been two notably destructive derailments in Langley. In February 1986, a train derailed just east of the village of Fort Langley, carrying hazardous and cancer-causing chemicals. It spilled 65,000 gallons of ethylene dichloride, and 13,000 gallons of caustic soda. The wreck was the second derailment in the area within the span of a year, although the previous crash had not been as destructive. In 2002, a derailment at Glover Road and Smith Crescent sent an engine and railcars flying around Milner. Just before 3:30 p.m. on Dec. 23, 2002, a truck tried to cross the tracks at Smith, and was hit by a southbound CNR train. The driver managed to jump free of the truck and avoided becoming entangled in the massive wreck that followed. One rail car blocked the southbound lane of Glover, and power poles were smashed, cutting off electricity to 100 people. The train operator was not hurt, and the train was not carrying hazardous materials. Ginger Sherlock, the coordinator for the Langley Emergency Program, noted that fire departments train with the railway companies for a major derail-

A train derailed spectacularly in Milner in 2002, but there were no toxic chemicals on board. Amazingly, no one was hurt. ment. “We do have protocols,” Sherlock said. As with the 2002 derailment, most derailments involve grain or other non-toxic materials. The majority of derailments are small and involve only one or two cars. A map in the Emergency Operations Centre shows all the rail lines, their ownership, what type of trains travel there, and who to call in an emergency. If there is a derailment, firefighters and other front line responders should know very quickly if they are dealing with

something dangerous. “Do we have the ability to respond? Yes we do,” said Sherlock. The Township has even practised for a train derailment in one of its yearly disaster simulations – other simulations have involved quakes or massive wildfires. “Although we are well trained, we might not have all the equipment we might need,” said Sherlock. The Township does not have a full hazmat crew, she noted, but it can get one quickly from Surrey. Local fire departments

and police services cooperate in the event of a major disaster. If an area needs to be evacuated, the RCMP has had practice in recent years due to flood risks. With all the training there is still a difference between preparing and the actual event. “You have your plans, and it’s only when something like that happens that your plan gets tested,” Sherlock said. She would prefer to keep practicing than to have to actually see a serious train derailment happen again anywhere in Langley.

Car suspected in three accidents by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Three hit and run incidents in Langley, and just one driver facing charges for all of them. The Langley RCMP say a 45-year-old local man is facing alcohol-related driving charges after a trio of collisions on July 3. The victims included a car rear-ended while waiting for a train on the Langley Bypass near Glover Road, another car rear-ended at 208th Street and 56th Avenue, and an innocent tree. Fortunately, no one was hurt in any of the collisions, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP. The Langley RCMP were first called just before

5 p.m. to the rear-ending at 208th and 56th, where a blue Honda Civic hit another vehicle before turning north onto 208th. Less than a minute later, police got their second call, about the same Civic hitting a tree at 57th Avenue and 208th Street. An officer found the damaged Civic on 57th Avenue, pulled over the driver, and immediately noted a strong odour of liquor. A breath sample given at the RCMP headquarters turned up more than the .08 per cent. The third complaint, about the man hit at the train crossing, came in after the driver had already been arrested. In that case, the victim approached the Civic driver, but retreated because the driver was aggressive, Marks said.

The average life span of a white rhino – in captivity – is 25 to 45 years.

Participants competing on home soil

Hometown athletes will be involved in seven sports at the BC Special Olympics Summer Games. by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

Let the Games begin. The 2013 BC Special Olympics Summer Games kick off with opening ceremonies tonight (July 11) at the Langley Events Centre, and there’s loads of local representation. Led by the Langley Warriors basketball team and Langley Dynamite softball team, the host community will have 49 athletes and 13 coaches participating in seven sports during this weekend’s multi-sport competition. “I am so pumped it’s unbelievable,” Dick Jennens, local coordinator with Langley Special Olympics said Tuesday. “It’s been a long road to get to here and we are so ready to go as a team in Langley. Each and every athlete is pumped and stoked and ready to go. I can’t wait until Thursday.”

Summer Games by the numbers • The first-ever Special Olympics BC Summer Games were held at the University of British Columbia in 1984, where 400 athletes competed. • More than 1,100 athletes are coming to Langley. • More than 300 volunteer coaches and mission staff members will be supporting them and helping them achieve their goals. • They are all coming together from the eight sport regions around B.C. and the Yukon. • 1,000 volunteers will play a vital role in bringing the Games to life. • 73 buses will help the teams travel around Langley to and from their events. • Farthest distance that B.C. athletes and coaches will travel to reach the Games in Langley: 1,363 kilometres from Kitimat (topped only by our friends from the Yukon). • More than 400 supporters have registered with the Games Families & Friends Program to attend and cheer on the athletes. • The athletes will be going for gold in 11 sports: five-pin bowling, 10-pin bowling, basketball, bocce, golf, powerlifting, rhythmic gymnastics, soccer, softball, swimming, and track and field. • The powerlifters competing in the Langley Events Centre on the evening of Friday, July 12, will make 78 attempts at deadlifts. • An estimated 20,000 meals will be served to the teams. • 300 tables and 3,000 chairs will be needed to accommodate everyone at sports and meals.

Those who have never seen a Special Olympics competition are in for a treat, Jennens said. “The thing that will really stand out is the camaraderie, the support athletes have,” added Jennens, whose son George is competing in the powerlifting event. “You have two teams against each other, but at the end of the game it’s all hugs and high fives. It’s a very special event and the competition is fierce.” Local participants are: Aquatics Karina DuPaul Trisha Boyle Josh Low Coaches Marilyn Farquhar Gaston DuPaul Athletics Nikki Anderson Jeannette Lavallee Katrina Duggan Andrea Zonneveld Abigale Calvert Jennifer McCabe Christopher Wiens David Cairns Dustin Beard Coach Jim Beard Powerlifting George Jennens Lee McCook

Schedule of Events – July 11-13

“What you see is, without exception, are people who are engaged in raw competition. It’s coming from a place of joyful participation.” Leading up to this weekend, Olson had the opportunity to meet and visit with local Special Olympics athletes. He has fond memories of the Fort Langley May Day parade May 20, when he walked alongside them down Glover Road. “That was a lot of fun,” he said. Looking ahead to this weekend’s Games, Olson said the event is “part of a much larger vision.” “That vision is that persons with intellectual disabilities have the right to pursue excellence, just like anybody else,” he said. “They have the right to dream big, just like anybody else. They have the right to push past their limits, experience the joy of teamwork, the passion of sport, and to leave it out on the field, just like anybody else.” With that it mind, there is an element of courage that comes with doing your very best, Olson said. “What it does is, it reveals what your best is. How many of us don’t reveal our best? Don’t do our best, but are content with less than our best? It’s an inspiration to everyone, the concept of having the courage to do your best.” Those with an intellectual disability spend a lifetime hearing about what they can’t do, the chair added. “In Special Olympics, you’re hearing what you can do,” he said. While a dull day is expected today (July 11), the sun is anticipated to push the clouds away for two days of competition Saturday, July 12, and Saturday, July 13. The Games wind up with closing ceremonies on Sunday, July 14. Regardless of what Mother Nature has in store for the weekend, the plans are in place. Olson knows he has, and has had, plenty of support during this Games journey. “Fifteen months ago, we assembled this team of 20 community leaders, so we have a very strong GOC [Games Organizing Committee] team,” he said. “We have these strong leaders and they have their area of responsibility, and they are executing that area of responsibility.” For more on the local Special Olympics program, visit sobclangley.org.

The borders of Langley and Surrey are turning into a single community, at least as far as criminals are concerned, say the Langley RCMP. From Port Kells and Walnut Grove in the north to Langley City and Cloverdale in the south, the RCMP recently launched a cross-border policing effort. Surrey and Langley Mounties created a team of 19 regular members, including a surveillance team, which operated starting at the beginning of May, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP. The Langley and Surrey Target Team (LASTT) found crime analysis maps showed that criminals were moving back and forth across the municipal border at 196th Street. Over two months, property crime rates in the area dropped from 72 per week to 50 per week, said Marks, a 30 per cent reduction. The sharpest reduction was in the areas north of 72nd Avenue, where Willoughby and Clayton Heights meld together. Supt. Derek Cooke was at the City council meeting July 8 where he said the members have already noticed an impact since it started. “We have seen some improvement in the crime stats in that time,” he commented. He added the members are find-

Combined crime figures for the City and Township were presented at a recent City council meeting. ing that the people committing the crimes along the Langley/Surrey border are typically not from Langley. “We’re seeing some new faces,” Cooke told council. Tactics included both open and covert monitoring of known “problem houses,” high visibility patrols, aggressive street and curfew checks of offenders on release, and face to face visits with store owners in the affected areas. Volunteers and the auxiliary constables also took part in the program. Officers also encouraged people in the areas to report crime, which may have resulted in a slight increase in crimes reported south of the Langley Bypass, Marks said. More lower

level crime was reported in the area than in the recent past. The effort is to continue over the summer and focus more strongly on the City’s core area, where crime has not yet gone down. In the Langley RCMP crime stats, combined figures for the City and Township show that business break and enters are on par with the fouryear average for the same period (January to June). Residential B&Es are down from an average of 47 per quarter to 36 during the quarter. Auto theft has dropped and theft from auto is down slightly. The four-year average saw 768 property crimes reported while the 2013 figures show there have been 640 reported in the first six months.

An off-duty Vancouver Police officer gave the Langley RCMP an assist in identifying the person behind the wheel after a serious car accident last week. On July 3, at about 2:30 p.m., a motorcycle and a Pontiac Sunfire collided on Rawlison Crescent, near Glover Road. The Sunfire and motorbike were both headed west, when the Sunfire driver allegedly made a sudden Uturn, crossing a double yellow line. The rider told police he couldn’t avoid the collision, and slammed into the front driver’s side panel of the car, losing control and ending up on his back on the road. The motorcycle suffered significant damage. The driver of the Sunfire then apparently switched places with a woman in the car and left the scene of the crash. The VPD officer was nearby, and followed the Sunfire to 88th Avenue and Glover Road in Fort Langley, and called the RCMP to give the car’s location. When Langley Mounties came, the VPD officer was able to tell them that the original driver was now hiding in some nearby bushes, while the woman remained behind the wheel. The officers found the man and gave him tickets for failing to remain at the scene of a collision, driving without a valid licence, and driving without due care and attention. “We are very appreciative of off-duty members in our area that would take time away from their personal activities to assist their fellow officers with policing matters,” said Insp. Rob de Boersap, the operations officer for the Langley RCMP.

Township council

Fears of development drive park residents to protest The owners of a mobile home park say they don’t plan evictions. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Residents of a Walnut Grove mobile home park are scared that their homes are about to be redeveloped, but the owners of the land say they aren’t planning to kick anyone out. For decades, Forest Green Estates has been tucked into a quiet pocket west of 200th Street and just north of the Highway One interchange in Walnut Grove. “It’s the nicest park in the Lower Mainland, I think,” said Gail Smith, who stood outside the Langley Township hall Monday evening with a protest sign. “We want to spend the rest of our days

there.” Smith and others are worried that a change to the Township’s official community plan (OCP) will make it easier to rezone the land on which they live. The changes – part of a broad change intended to map out the next 30 years of growth in the Township – would change their area’s designation from industrial to residential. However, there is no application yet to rezone the park, confirmed both Township staff and the owners of the land. “We have not made an application for rezoning,” said David Ehrhardt, a director of Carvolth Housing, the owners of Forest Green Estates. Carvolth has owned the property since the early 1990s and intends to continue to operate it on a rental basis, said Ehrhardt. “We were flabbergasted

that this even came up yesterday,” he said Tuesday. Yet the rumour of a possible rezoning drove more than a hundred residents to pack the Township council chambers Monday. For almost two hours, more than 20 park residents spoke out, asking the Township not to change their zoning from its current manufactured home park designation. If the park ever closed and residents were forced to move, it would be

financially devastating for many residents, said Marilyn Garrity. “It will be even more devastating to our spirit,” she said. Many residents talked about the sense of community in the park, where they have found friends. The park is a 55-plus community, with many residents in their 80s. One resident, who did not come to the meeting, is a fairly spry 102 years old, said her neighbours. The green environment,

with birds and small wildlife, and the ability to own pets, were other factors for the residents asking for the park to be protected. While Township councillors are not allowed to make comments at public hearings, several councillors and the mayor expressed a desire to ease residents fears. “Nobody here is going to wipe you out,” said Councillor Charlie Fox. Mayor Jack Froese extended the public hearing to July 22, and offered

to set up a meeting so that councillors and staff could answer questions and have a fuller discussion with residents about the future of the park. Mobile home park residents around B.C. and in Langley have been on edge in recent years. A number of parks have been closed down as developers buy the properties. Mobile homes and manufactured homes may be difficult or expensive to move, and the residents are often on a fixed income.

Women still get the blame

It is astounding, in this day and age, with so much information so easily available to so many people, that one in five Canadians still believe that women who are sexually assaulted effectively “asked for it.” Nearly a fifth of Canadians, according to a survey conducted by the Canadian Women’s Foundation, still believe that victims of sexual assault provoke their attackers through the clothing they wear or by their behaviour in public. It appears, according to the disturbing results of the survey, that many Canadian believe the clothing women wear, or the alcohol they consume, are Email with the real culprits in sexually motivated attacks – not the men who molest or rape their victims. The Canadian Women’s Foundation study revealed that 19 per cent of the respondents believe women encourage sexual assault by getting drunk, 15 per cent said flirting gives men an excuse to commit sexual assault, and 17 per cent maintained that short skirts provoke sexual assults. It’s the old “men simply can’t help themselves, so women ought to know better” defence. Perhaps most disturbing are the figures that indicate some of the most archaic and misdirected understanding of the causes of sexual assault appeared among survey respondents aged between 18 and 34 years. In addition to the physical trauma they endure, sexual assault victims commonly have long-term and serious psychological effects that may include depression, selfblame, shame, fear, and anger – all feelings that may be fueled and exacerbated by the stupid and misguided beliefs of many of their own friends and relatives. More men need to try harder to understand their mothers and sisters and daughters – and to understand themselves better. And they need to “man up” when it comes to taking greater responsibility for their own actions. – B.G.

Langley Memorial Hospital

Grand lady marks 65-year history

Dear Editor, On July 14, a grand old lady turns 65 – perhaps not so old, but still grand. She’s had a few facelifts – a nip and tuck here and there, some things added and others removed – but she remains as dependable and as effective as she has always been. Langley Memorial Hospital, conceived from a need, born from perseverance and hard work, and nurtured by dedicated professionals, still stands proudly atop Hospital Hill, a testament to the accomplishment of a few committed citizens who had a vision those many years ago. The people who gathered in front of the new 35-bed cottage-style hospital on that warm July day must have been ecstatic to see their dream become reality. That, of course, was only the beginning. It took

people such as Dr. A.O. Rose, Dr. Chapin Key, Director of Nursing Marion Ward, Assistant Director Peggie Young, Head Nurse Iris Mooney, medical, nursing and technical staff, administrators, and many more to bring competence and compassion to what would have otherwise been merely a building. For 16 years the cottage served Langley, but no sooner were the first patients admitted on Sept. 1, 1948, than the building was judged inadequate. Renovations added beds but the community was growing. Following years of negotiations with the B.C. government, a new building, the 1965 hospital, received the go-ahead. Additions have since added beds and services. For almost 50 years the affairs of LMH were governed by the Langley

Play Pacman and never die

Dear Editor, Patricia Tallman’s comments [If pigs were dogs, who’d eat them? July 4 Letters, Langley Advance] have been a lifealtering revelation for me. I can’t play video games, and it shames me to know that pigs are much more intelligent than me or my dog. I am bound and determined that my dog and I will learn to play Pacman. Secondly, by becoming a vegetarian, I am hoping that I am in the 15 per cent of vegetarians who are less likely to die. Imagine, I may do better than Methuselah! Eric Warkentin, Langley City

Letter response

Wars’ deaths miscalculated

Dear Editor, Mr. Harvey is eager to convince us to not be assimilated by the U.S.A., but he has his numbers grossly wrong. He asserts that there were more casualties in the American Civil War than in First and Second World Wars combined. Historians estimate deaths (counting civilians) on both sides in the Civil War to number 620,000; WWI had 38,000,000 deaths, and WWII had 72,000,000. Alex Lornie, Langley

Memorial Hospital Society – citizens from all walks of life. But on April 4, 1997, B.C.’s minister of health notified the hospital board that its services were no longer required, and LMH was ordered to amalgamate with three other area hospitals to form the Fraser Health Region. Thus the citizens of Langley lost control of their hospital, 48 years and nine months after the society received its charter. A few months earlier, the LMH Heritage Committee – mostly retired staff, along with a Langley historian – formed to write the 50-year history of the institution. Four years in the making, the book, The Hospital on the Hill, was released just months after the takeover by the FHA. It was the brainchild of administrative assistant Grace Carter, who could see that the cornerstones of LMH were being eroded and its history lost. In 2000, the committee, in cooperation with the Langley Heritage Society, both local councils, and numerous Langley citizens, worked to save the cottage hospital from demolition. The building was eventually torn down, but the property was not turned into a parking lot, as the FHA had planned, and the stone wall was saved to become a part of the new building. Memorial Cottage, a psychiatric unit, sits on the footprint of the original LMH, and resembles it in appearance. I encourage all newcomers to Langley, especially those employed at the hospital, to get a copy of The Hospital on the Hill and read about the men and women who made it possible for the grand old lady to celebrate her 65th birthday this month.

Langley sees jump in housing sales by Matthew Claxton

Langley Advance files

Sales of townhouses are slightly up in Langley, but sales of detached homes made the biggest gains in June. also up sharply both year over year and month to month. Prices for Langley’s detached homes also went up, with the benchmark price, the median price, and the average price all rising or remaining stable. In condo, while sales were strong, prices slid by more than two per cent for average, benchmark, and median prices all slid by between two and

2.7 per cent. The benchmark price for a townhouse stayed stable, while the average price dropped 3.3 per cent. Compared to Langley, the rest of the region is doing poorly, with the number of total sales for detached homes down 8.9 per cent from June 2012, townhouse sales down 6.3 per cent, and only condo sales rising by 7.2 per cent, year over

year. FVREB president Ron Todson looked on the bright side of the pockets of good news. “In general, prices are flat and firm. They remain on par with what they were a year ago and that stability is thanks to inventory levels remaining in check, but again similar to sales, price increases or decreases vary,” said Todson.

What’s in

rhooper@langleyadvance.com

House prices and sales are up in Langley, bucking a regional trend. Langley was a bright spot in the regional real estate market in June, according to home sale numbers released by the Fraser Valley Real Estate Board. Across the region from North Delta to Abbotsford, there were 1,327 sales of homes, down nine per cent from 1,463 in the same month in 2012. That’s well below the 20-year average for this area. However, Langley and a few other pockets actually saw an increase in the sale of detached homes, and prices here also rose. Langley saw the sale of 140 detached homes in June, up from 136 in the same month last year, and from 134 in May. Sales of townhouses were up slightly year to year, but declined compared to May, while the sales of condos were

I sneak away for a few weeks of R&R, and return to find there’s all sorts of things happening in Langley’s business community, much more than I can tell you about today. I’ll work to bring you up to speed during the next few weeks. In the meantime, let me at least touch on a few highlights. New on the scene is the Philly Steakout restaurant that opened next to Chucky Cheese on 200th Street – near 64th Avenue. If there are any who have checked it out, like us on Facebook and let me know your thoughts. As well, another golf store – the Golf Square – is set to open up next to Once Upon A Child and behind Staples. And much to my dismay, just up the road I noticed the quiet departure of Black Bond Books. After almost 37 years in this community, the small familyowned chain of bookstores has closed up in Langley. A sad day, indeed, for all of us book lovers.

Langley country stars let it shine for charity

Twin brothers are organizing a huge outdoor music concert this month aimed at raising money for cancer.

t’s been nine months in the making, and now, with only 16 sleeps left twin brothers Chris and Jamie Ruscheinski are expecting 5,000 of their closest friends and some complete strangers to throw on their blue jeans and cowboy hats and “go country” in help fight cancer. The duo is organizing a massive outdoor country concert, called Gone Country: Here For The Cure, in Cloverdale at the end of the month with the primary goal to raise $200,000. And to help the local boys achieve this goal, they’ve called on a number of Western Canada’s biggest country artists – most hailing from Langley – to help. For instance, headining the event is local country star Aaron Pritchett. When approached a few months ago, through a common friend and musician, Pritchett said he was excited to be “part of such a great cause.” “Like most people, sadly, I have been directly affected by cancer in my family, as well as with friends. I lost someone close to me just the other day to cancer, so my drive is even that much more to raise as much money as possible,” he told the Langley Advance. Enjoying the attention his latest single Suntan City is getting, the Langley artist who brought fans Hold My Beer and Let’s Get Rowdy has been travelling extensively lately, not only performing live but even dabbling in the movie world. “I’ve been all over the country over the last bunch of years, and it feels really good to come back home for a special event like Gone Country – Here For The Cure,” Pritchett said. “To be able to help out in my own backyard is a special feeling. It’s rare that I do a show in the Vancouver area and to have it be a great fundraising event like this is great!” He is sharing the Gone Country stage with fellow Langleyites Dallas Smith, as well as Jaydee Bixby and Karen Lee Batten – both Canadian Idol finalists.

Helping children with cancer

T

he Ruscheinski brothers are in the midst of helping renovate the common rooms, play rooms, and a couple of bedrooms at Easter Seals House in Vancouver. While some of the money raised from the July 27 concert will aid in the renovations, the majority will be going to the Shaun G. Foundation – a foundation started in honour of a late friend Shaun, who lost his battle with cancer at age 28.

The twins started fundraising a few years ago, motivated because they’d lost numerous people in their lives to cancer, including their mother to breast cancer and their friend Shaun Gauthier to a rare cancer called angiosarcoma. On the heels of several successful fund-

raisers, including Cure Is The New Black at BMW Langley, and a beach barbecue at the Langley Events Centre, they came up with this idea for a country concert. “We both grew up in Cloverdale and Langley, so we understand the popularity of country music and what a great fit it is

for the community. If this goes as planned we are hoping to make it an annual event. With support from local business, friends, family and the community we have done everything we can to keep our costs as low as possible, in turn raising more money to fight cancer,” Chris said. The Gone Country charity concert is being held on Thursday, July 27 from 4 to 11 p.m. at the Cloverdale Ampitheatre at the fairgrounds. Tickets are $42 (discounts available for bulk buys) at twinscancerfundraising.com. “Sunsets and cold drinks mixed with great people gets even better, knowing every penny goes to fight cancer,” Chris said. “Good music, beer garden, mechanical bulls, and Vancouver food trucks! This is one party you won’t want to miss.” His brother injected: “We have always preferred flip-flops and tank tops over high heels and bow ties. Give us great tunes over long speeches any day. Don’t get us wrong, we don’t mind a glass of champagne once in awhile, we just find that a red cup holds a lot more liquid,” Jamie joked. “Think of Gone Country as the casual cousin of the uptight gala fundraiser. Socially, he’s the one that’s always slightly under-dressed and finds it acceptable to crack a beer at 11a.m. if he states, ‘It’s five o-clock somewhere.’ He greets you with a hug over a handshake, has no idea how to send a text, can’t hit a note (but knows the words to every song). You know him... always a little sunburnt, always slightly hungover, always a great time.”

President and founder of Langley Pos-Abilities Zosia Ettenberg, who is helped by her assistance dog Rumour, invites everyone to this unique community event. Additionally, Langley PosAbilities’ film Try on a Disability will be shown. The film shows

people using devices that impair them so they can try basic daily tasks of life and see what it’s

like to have a disability. The film is also for sale on the society website (langley.pos-abilities. org). Local representatives from the fire department will attend to discuss different emergency preparedness tips. “We want people to start having a dialogue with the fire department,” Ettenberg said. In the marketplace, community groups will be on hand along with disabled artists selling their creations. “One young lady who is a poet is going to be selling her poems,” Etternberg noted. In the children’s area find facepainting and other kids’ activities and for the hungry people in the crowd, the Langley Elks will be making sandwiches while the Langley Lions fire up the barbeque. Of course there is that wheelchair obstacle course to try out. It’s built to code. “And when you try it, you’ll wonder, ‘how can this be code?’” Ettenberg said. It’s a full-day of fun for those with, and without, disabilities to enjoy. “We want to celebrate the difference, but also create some understanding in the community to show that,” commented Ettenberg. “We don’t suffer from [a disability] we live with it.” Check it out at Douglas Park at 20399 Douglas Cres.

Children’s Hospital can benefit from the name of a new daylily being unveiled this weekend. by Heather Colpitts

hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Several years ago, Pam Erikson saw some traits in a daylily that she wanted to coax out. And this weekend is when she will introduce the new variety to the public, at the annual Erikson Daylily Gardens open house. The deep purple maroon blossoms should be out in full force, along with

LangleyAdvance

Name me almost everything else at the one-acre garden. Erikson uses the open house as an opportunity to unveil the new plants she’s bred. “It takes eight years to create a plant that’s ready to introduce,” she explained. The new maroon plant will also help raise money for charity. The public can bid (at least $500) on the naming rights for the plant, and half the winning bid

will go to BC Children’s Hospital, along with all the money from the admission by donation for the open house. The naming rights for Erikson’s in-demand lillies usually sell for about $2,500. This is the second year in a row that Erikson has devoted the proceeds to BC Children’s, giving $1,600 last year, but in the open house’s 12 years, she’s also given funds to the D.W. Poppy Secondary

music program, the seniors’ centre, Critter Care, and the CARES cat shelter. After the open house, which runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on July 13 and 14, she will help the winning bidder with the naming protocols. She said there’s paperwork for two organizations that will determine whether the name is accepted. The plant name can’t be

already taken and the name can’t be a registered trademark but otherwise people have quite a bit of leeway. For the open house, Erikson is anticipating 1,500 to 2,000 people going through the gardens over the two days and they will have plenty to see. Despite the wet spring, the heat has brought the plants to their showiest phases. Erikson estimates a record amount of plants will be in bloom for the open house. Each year as more and more people discover this hidden oasis, attendance grows. Because it’s a private garden, hours are controlled but Erikson is playing host to visitors from around the world. There’s been bus tours from New Zealand and Australia. There are people who come just for the open house from the Okanagan. Lots come from Washington State. “We’ve had people fly out from Edmonton just for this,” she said.

In addition to the show by Mother Nature, the open house features Judy Henry on harp, and the Aldergrove Daylily Society which will raffle off items from 14 donors. The club then donates funds for causes such as bursaries and scholarships at the Kwantlen Polytechnic University School of Horticulture. The regular exhibitors will be back, including Select Roses, Tuscan Farm Gardens, Buds N Petals, the Van Dusen Master Gardeners, glass artists and more. New this year will be Clayburn Comforts, which makes organic and natural soaps and body care items, and birdhouse builder Ken Knutson. Points to consider: the gardens are not accessible for wheelchairs, walkers or strollers. Children must be supervised and no pets are allowed. The gardens are at 24642 51st Ave. and there is ample parking. Learn more at eriksonsdaylilygardens. com.

Questions & Answers

Easiest is to live with clover Dear Anne,

“How can I reduce the amount of white clover in our lawn? We absolutely do not wish to use a herbicide, but I am not sure what will work. My wife does not mind clover and says it is good for the soil. But I would prefer a bit more grass.”

Zdenek Skoumal, via email

C

lover is hard to remove. It has fairly deep roots, and seeds around a lot. It’s a low-growing plant that loves sun. That’s why one easy deterrent is to set your mower to give a much longer cut – at least threeinch stem length. That will keep the grass a bit longer and tends to shade out the clover, which will have to make more effort to grow and be less visible when it does. A longer cut will help your grass to become stronger, since it will have longer leaves to perform photosynthesis, and that will give it an increased food supply. Poor soil favours an increase of clover and in lawns. Lush, healthy grass competes strongly with clover. Lawn fertilizer should be high in nitrogen, which

favours leaf growth, and low in phosphorus, which stimulates flower formation. Topdressing once a year with compost will help feed the grass. You could always rake some grass seed into the topdressing anywhere you feel the grass is thin. But you need to choose your mix carefully, because many grass seed mixes include some white clover seed. That’s because clover fixes nitrogen and helps to fertilize grass. Go easy on lime, or eliminate it for a while. It’s a balancing act, because the lime deters moss, while it encourages clover. Especially if your lawn is at all shady, lack of lime will result in more moss. Then you’d need to decide which is the worst evil: clover or moss. I wonder if it’s the look of white clover flowers that you really want to reduce. Is it possible you wouldn’t mind the green clover leaves nearly as much as you do white clover flowers? Especially with a longer cut, the green clover leaves won’t be easy to distinguish from the grass. All this is relatively little work compared with the task of trying to remove clover. Removing clover

could involve digging up your lawn and the deep clover roots, putting landscape fabric down and adding about seven centimetres (three inches) of topsoil, then spreading grass seed (or re-sodding). Dear Anne,

“This question is about an insect that secretes a foam substance from its body. It can be found along walkways where there is bush. What is it?”

Daryl Shim, via email

I

t’s called a “spitbug.” Inside all that foam is a little larvae. Spitbugs overwinter as eggs in the soil. In spring, they hatch, climb up plant stems, and suck sap from the leaves. The foam is from the plant juices they suck, and they use it as a protection while they develop into adults. The adults look like grasshoppers. They’re very good jumpers. Though they make plants look really ugly, they don’t normally occur in big clusters. They aren’t going to do much damage (though you don’t want them on vegetables). On ornamental plants, the problem is more of an aesthetic one. But if you need to get rid of them in a garden, you can always blast them away with water from a hose.

Langley drummer Graham Haddon

Arts in brief

Musical brothers Scotland bound by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

A

pair of Langley brothers is bound for Scotland in a month, hoping beyond hope that they and other members of the Simon Fraser University Pipe Band can bring home the group’s seventh world championship trophy. Brian and Graham Haddon, a piper-drummer duo respectively, are members of the Grade 1 band and part of the 50-member SFU band making a return visit to Glasgow in midAugust. But, between now and then, the band’s attention is not focused exclusively on practice – believe it or not. Instead, it’s split between a range of related activities. For instance, many are involved in teaching at a two-week instructional school at Silver Star Mountain and a rare full band concert in Vernon on Sunday. But once the excursion to the B.C. Interior is behind them, band members can look forward to a rather intense, near-daily practices at either SFU or in pipe sergeant Jack Lee’s pastoral backyard on the Langley-Surrey border. Then, it’s off to Stirling, Scotland, to spend the final week honing their sound and acclimatizing before the two-day competition on Aug. 17 and 18. The band features an eclectic mix of players both local and from afar. Some are also SFU students. Those from the Lower Mainland come from Surrey, Burnaby, Coquitlam, Abbotsford, Maple Ridge and Vancouver, while others reside in Seattle, Calgary, Winnipeg, Blaine, Bellingham, Monterey,

California, St. Paul, Minnesota, and even Northern Ireland, Scotland and New Zealand. The Haddon boys – hailing from Langley – have worked their way up the junior ranks through the past decade. These young members officially became senior band members the day after the 2012 Worlds. “We welcome having this new, young talent with us this year, especially coming off the success they shared in Glasgow last year,” said Lee.

New gallery opens

T

here’s a new kid on the block – or in this case, in the village. Fort Langley has a new art gallery, opened up by owners Curtis Zondag and Laura Murphy. The Fort Langley Studio opened June 29 on the main street, at the corner of Glover Road and 96th Avenue. Specializing in “art that moves,” Zondag said every week the studio will showcase a new artist in their 1,500-square-foot space, with four to eight artists working on rotation at any given time. Langley artists Susan Galick and Sasha Moye, for instance were among those featured during the grand opening week. While Zondag predicts his background in music and event planning will add an important dimen-

sion to the gallery receptions and special events, Murphy is expected to balance that out with her artistic abilities. Painting professionally for years, primarily on glass, Murphy’s largest piece to date is a 92-footlong Birds of Prey mural featured at the Vancouver Aquarium in 2011. “Our canvass of the Fort Langley business community has been overwhelmingly positive as the Fort Langley Studio will be a draw not only during the busy seasons of summer and early autumn, but throughout the year, with something new to see every week,” Zondag said. “The Fort Langley Studio is a vibrant and fresh new face on the busy Fort Langley stroll.”

Isreal inspired art

S

peaking of art in the village, Langley artist Lucy Adams has her most recent works on display at the nearby Fort Gallery starting this week. After a trip to Isreal last fall, Adams felt that it was time to develop a theme she had considered for some time. “The wonderful poetry of The Psalms has long captivated my imagination,” she said. Consequently, she decided to create a series of paintings that express some of her reaction to the ancient literature, hence

the name of her new show, Pslams. With her show date looming, Adams initially felt overwhelmed at taking on the project, and wondered where and how to begin. However, knowing that she had to start somewhere, she simply put brush to canvas and almost immediately, the ideas poured in. She would complete the basics of the first four paintings within a week. “The challenge was to put visual language to the multi-layered ideas expressed in the poetry” Adams said. “The show is now hung in such a way as to highlight the notion that the Psalms are very much alive – living – not static, even today, some three thousand years after they were written.” Feeling that she has made only the tiniest scratch at the potential of the project, Adams now looks back. “I loved every minute of creating these works, and I am already eager to continue developing this theme further.” Adams will be at the gallery each weekend during the exhibition, which runs July 10-28. There is also an opening reception on Friday, July 12, 7-9 p.m. The gallery is at 9048 Glover Rd. For more information, visit www.fortgallery.ca.

Season to remember for Sockeyes’ scorer

The Pacific Junior Hockey League’s top goal-scorer hopes success will spill over when he joins the Coquitlam Express this coming season.

Troy Landreville/Langley Advance

Langley United Soccer Association technical director Mark Parker held up a LUSA jersey Saturday in Willoughby. The local soccer club recently offered free training, field space, and apparel to the Langley Special Olympics soccer team.

Daniell Lange is ready to take the next step in his hockey career. The 17-year-old graduated from the major midget ranks, where he spent two years with the Valley West Hawks, to the junior B level with the Richmond Sockeyes this past season. And what a season it was, both for the high scoring right-handed centreman and his Sockeyes teammates. Richmond finished with the best record in the Pacific Junior Hockey League, at 32-8-0-4 while Lange finished second in team scoring with a whopping 34 goals (tops in the league), 19 assists, and 53 points. His linemate, fellow Langley resident Danton Heinen, was third on the Sockeyes’ points table with 21 goals and 49 points. The impressive regular season was just an appetizer for what was to come. The Sockeyes swept the Aldergrove Kodiaks in four games to capture the best-of-seven, PJHL playoff championship series. The victory put them into the Cyclone Cup junior B championship tournament in Courtenay. The PJHL champions capped a dominating run at the four-team Cyclone Cup competition with a 41 victory over Vancouver Island league representative Victoria Cougars on April 14.

LUSA lends helping hand to local Special Olympians Weekly training sessions were a win/win situation for Langley United Soccer Association and Special Olympics players. by Troy Landreville

tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

The keen eye of Langley United Soccer Association president Dave Kasper helped bring the club together with Langley Special Olympics soccer players. Kasper was at his son Graham’s soccer practice at Charles Best turf field in Coquitlam when he noticed a group of Special Olympics players training nearby. This sparked an idea. Kasper thought, why not see if his association could help Special Olympics players from Langley? Kasper got in touch with Langley Special Olympics coordinator Dick Jennens, who then connected LUSA with the organization’s soccer coach, Steve Dorman. Through LUSA technical director Mark Parker, the association made space available on Wednesdays for the Special Olympics team at its home base of Willoughby Community Park, along with some training from its coaching staff and free apparel so that the local Special Olympians would feel like they are part of the association. “Dick, Dave, and I met a couple of months ago,” Parker recalled Saturday

at Willoughby Community Park, during the BC Soccer Provincial A Cup Soccer Championships. “Basically, we asked Dick what they were doing in terms of training.” Prior to the local partnership, the Langley Special Olympics team practised on what some might consider to be a below par field, locally. “The field wasn’t conducive to… development of players,” Parker said. In the afternoons when the weather sometimes took a turn for the worse, training continued in the gym of a local school. Kasper came to Parker with the question: what could the association do to help the Langley Special Olympics soccer team? LUSA decided to open a portion of its turf field at Willoughby Community Park for the Special Olympics team to train on over an eight-week period. As well, Dorman, his support staff, and LUSA staff coaches worked with the Special Olympics players to improve their technical skills and development. Parker himself took part in training sessions and said it was a rewarding experience. “They’re enthusiasm bubbles,” Parker said, regarding the Special Olympics players. “Their happiness is beyond belief. Steve Dorman does an absolutely wonderful job with them. The athletes were remarkable. They are very willing; they are very wanting to learn, and they were very, very enthusiastic.” • More online at www.langleyadvance.com

Junior A lacrosse

Jr. Thunder downs Saints The Langley Jr. Thunder has drawn first blood in its B.C. Junior A Lacrosse League opening round series with the Port Coquitlam Saints. A 14-10 victory over the Saints Tuesday at the Langley Events Centre gives the Jr. Thunder the hammer heading into Friday’s game two match-up at the Port Coquitlam Rec Centre. Based on how the teams fared during the BCJALL regular season, the Jr. Thunder was the favourite heading into the best-of-three series. Langley, which ended up third in the BCJALL with a stellar 14-7 record, had nearly double the amount of points of Port Coquitlam, which struggled to a 7-13-1 mark to snag the sixth and final playoff spot in the eight-team league. On Wednesday, the Jr. Thunder jumped out to a 6-3 first-period lead and led 10-5 after two periods of play. The Saints finished strongly, outscoring

the Jr. Thunder 5-4 in the final period. The highlight for the visitors was scoring three goals in 33 seconds, starting at the 17-minute mark of the final frame. The three-pronged attack of Brett Dobray, Johnny Pearson, and Sean Lundstrom was a factor for the Jr. Thunder. Dobray led the way with three goals and four assists, with Pearson notching a hat trick and three helpers. Lundstrom scored twice and set up five goals. The Jr. Thunder’s Reegan Comeault also had a strong game with a goal and five assists. Also scoring for the home team was Adam Will, Brendan Mykle-Winkler, Brandon Bull, James Rahe, and Nick Stone. The Jr. Thunder outshot the Saints 5735 on the night. Jr. Thunder goaltender Spencer England made 25 saves for the victory.

Lange signs with Coquitlam …continued from page A23

At the team banquet, he came away with the 3 Star Award, was named Most Popular Player, won the Iron Man Award (because he played the entire 44game schedule) and was the co-winner of Rookie of the Year, sharing it with Heinen. Lange signed with the B.C. Hockey League’s Coquitlam Express for the 2013/14 season. “I’m hoping to stay there for a year or two and then get a [NCAA] scholarship,” he said. “Coquitlam’s a good organization

so that influenced me to choose them.” After watching a thrilling Stanley Cup final that saw the Chicago Blackhawks edge the Boston Bruins in six games, Lange is champing at the bit to get back on the ice in an actual game situation. “I’m starting to miss it, actually,” he said. “I can’t wait for August to come around.” To prepare for the Express’s training camp next month Lange has been training on and off the ice during the summer with Mike Thompson and Tyler Jackson of TnT Hockey Performance Training.
