in the same room, so there can be better communication. The school district is trying to set up a May 31 meeting to discuss a land swap that angered Routley parents. The district and the Township acquired 5.6 hectares at 70th Avenue and 200 Street between 2000 and 2004, for a future school and park. That land is now being sold to a developer who wants to turn it into 103 town houses. The district won’t sign the land swap deal until the Township rezones the land, and the developer can’t go ahead until the land is rezoned. Irate parents complained at a Township council meeting on May 10, where councillors deferred a decision on rezoning, because the land swap deal had not been finalized. A large contingent of parents and families showed up at the May 17 school board meeting to urge the district to keep the land, in a residential area that already has three overcrowded elementary schools – R.C.

Peter Pretorius addressed the school board at its May 17 meeting. Cloverdale because the only neighbourhood school that could take them, Willoughby Elementary, is farther away. He said the community has engaged consultant Jacob de Raadt, who has been gathering data on the number of children in the neighbourhood. Residents also have email and door-to-door counts underway. Pretorius called on the district to stop the land swap before townhouses are built. “You don’t break a townhouse down to build a school,” he said.

Heather Colpitts/Langley Advance

The land swap is regulated by the School Act, explained superintendent Cheryle Beaumont. The site was considered for a potential school until about 2008, when the district amended its capital plan, to switch priority farther north, in Yorkson. The parents were vocal about not being informed about the changes. They maintained that there are currently enough students in Routley to justify another school in the area.

It took three generations but the Foss family has a May Queen. Stephanie Ewing, a Grade 6 student at H.D. Stafford, is the first member of the Foss family to bear the title at the annual May Day festivities in Fort Langley. She is the third generation of the family to be part of the royal party. When she rides the float in the 89th annual parade on May 23, she will be joining 14 previous family members from three generations who were part of the annual tradition.

Playright tackles homelessness issue hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

A Langley high school student is challenging people to look at misconceptions about the homeless in a play she’s written and brings to the stage May 27. Desiree Wallace has written Invisible OUT LOUD which will have its premier next Thursday at Langley Secondary School. The Grade 12 student is no stranger to the stage, having recently starred in For Old Times Sake. In her new show she introduces the audience to Buddy, a man who makes his home outside a prestigious hotel. The hotel guests come and go, not seeing him. “To them Buddy is invisible. It isn’t until he crosses path with another individual who is unknowlingly ‘homeless’ that his story is heard. This play is a comedy/drama that has been created to confront the misconceptions homlessness and the homeless have been labeled with,” Wallace said. The production features the talents

New rules could limit ALR home sizes by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Metro Vancouver is asking the province to regulate the building of large houses on farmland, a rule that could affect many rural Langley properties. The regional district is recommending that the province develop guidelines for the size of farmhouses, as well as where they can be located on Agricultural Land Reserve (ALR) land. “Our concern is that if we don’t have bylaws, we could lose a tremendous amount of farmland through them becoming very large country estates,” said Harold Steves, chair of Metro Vancouver’s agriculture committee. Steves is a councillor in Richmond,

one of two communities that has rules already in place for homes on ALR land. Richmond governs house location, and Delta has placed limits on size. Pitt Meadows and Surrey have both tried to impose limits, but encountered opposition and never implemented the rules. Langley Township Mayor Rick Green said there is a good reason to fear the loss of agricultural land. He points out that owners can easily take up a lot of a five-acre site by building a 5,000 square foot home in the middle of the lot. Add a long driveway, swimming pool, tennis courts, and so forth, and they have made it harder to convert the land for most kinds of farming. A proposed rule change might limit the buildings to one corner of

a lot, thus leaving most of the land open and easily farmed. “It has some merit,” Green said. However, he said the rules will have to strike a balance between creating a net benefit to farming and private property rights. “You can’t take a cookie cutter approach,” he said. Organic farmer Susan Davidson said she likes the idea. “I would be thrilled to support that campaign,” she said. Some farms need more or less housing, she said, but having houses with 3,000 square foot of space per person is just too much. “That is not sustainable,” she said. The matter has been sent to the provincial government for consideration.

I decided to integrate the two and this is what I’ve created. I believe awareness and having knowledge is power. By eliminating ignorance, judments and misconceptions will break too.” Wallace said one of her goals is to demystify issues around the homeless “because they are people, like anyone of us whose voices have been quieted by hesitation and isolation.” With so much homelessness in the Lower Mainland, it’s important to address the issues, she said. Wallace volunteers at St. Joe’s Soup Kitchen, experience that helped fire her creativity. But writing a play is only the first step. Getting it to the stage is a much more all-encompassing process that required help from many sources. Over the past couple of months, she and the cast have gathered twice a week to rehearse. “During this time I have also acquired costumes, props, and set. The technicalities of the show are different. My drama teacher, Chad Hendricks, has been assisting me in promotion, booking the dramnasium, tech and other specifics,” she explained. “Although it is a time consuming process it has has been a great deal of fun.”

An Abbotsford man was killed in an early morning collision on Tuesday on Highway 10, Langley RCMP say. A 54-year-old man was at the wheel of a Chevrolet Sprint when it collided with a five-ton refrigeration truck. The Sprint was headed west on Highway 10 at about 4:30 a.m. when it slammed into the eastbound truck, said Cpl. Holly Marks. The Sprint may have crossed the centre line of the highway.

Development gets ahead of children …continued from page A1

$129

Collision Analysis and Reconstruction Section (ICARS) is investigating. Another serious crash, just after 8 p.m. in the 25600 block of Fraser Highway, sent a Surrey man to the hospital via Air Ambulance. Police say an eastbound Dodge Caravan drifted left across the westbound lanes of the highway and went into a ditch on the north of the road, hitting a power pole. The 39-year-old driver suffered head injuries and was taken to hospital by helicopter. He was expected to survive, Marks said. Alcohol is not believed to have been a factor, and the cause of the crash is still under investigation. Fraser Highway was closed for three hours. Anyone with information on either crash can call Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200.

Beaumont said staff meet regularly with Township counterparts to discuss development issues. “Things have shifted over time,” she said, giving the example of R.C. Garnett, which is now over capacity. “The first year it opened, there were barely enough students to open the doors,” she said. Parents countered that that kind of rapid development is precisely why the Routley site should be kept. Langley Township engineering manager Ramin Seifi told Postmedia Network Inc. that the Routley Ridge neighbourhood is already 95 per cent developed, while Yorkson, which has only seen its first homes go up about five years ago, is just

starting its development boom. Caralee Randall said she doesn’t want to see her tax dollars wasted to repurchase more expensive land in the Routley area when the district realizes it needs a school there. The president of the Willoughby Homeowners Association said there are children in Routley now, but the new Lynn Fripps Elementary is going in Yorkson, a neighbourhood that is still under construction. The Langley board has said it needs another school on the Willoughby slope, pointing to overcrowding of existing schools, and the fact that Fripps is expected to be full by the time it opens in September 2012.

TransLink has to pay a developer for land expropriated in Langley. by Keith Fraser Postmedia Network Inc.

TransLink has been ordered to pay nearly $1 million in compensation to a Langley developer following a dispute over expropriation of lands for the Golden Ears Bridge project. In July 2006, TransLink expropriated from the builder of the massive 18screen Colossus theatre complex a strip of land to widen 200th Street, one of the main roads leading to the bridge. Thunderbird Entertainment Ltd., which in 1998 had built the theatre in Walnut Grove, had plans to build more on the site, and committed in its lease with Famous Players to 1,500 parking spots. TransLink couldn’t expropriate the parking area, so it expropriated the remaining building area, which was slated for some restaurants. It paid Thunderbird $580,000 for the expropriation, but the company believed it deserved more. In an 81-page ruling

Supreme Court Madam Justice Sandra Balance concluded Thunderbird was entitled to more than $700,000 in compensation. “The net result is roughly $1 million, with the interest,” Peter Kenward, a Vancouver lawyer who represented Thunderbird, said Tuesday. Kenward said his client Stan Silverman, the longtime president of the company, was happy with the ruling. The judge accepted the evidence of all of the Thunderbird witnesses, while rejecting TransLink’s arguments, and held that the TransLink experts were flawed, said Kenward. “The developer was just trying to minimize his loss

because the municipality wasn’t going to let him build in the area of the coming expropriation,” he said. The judge found that the loss in value of the land taken was $635,000 and the loss in the value related to the “injurious affection” caused by TransLink to be $655,500. A further $31,600 was to be paid for the value of temporary statutory right-of-way. “Thunderbird is entitled to payment of the aggregate of these sums, namely $1,322,100, less the amount is has already paid,” concluded the judge, who earlier noted the amount already paid was $580,000. – Keith Fraser is a reporter with the Vancouver Province.

FASTER, MORE ACCURATE DIAGNOSIS FOR SUSPECTED BREAST CANCER “Our focus is rapidity of diagnosis. We're eliminating unnecessary delays in a one-stop shop environment.” - Dr. Peter Doris, Surgeon and Physician Lead, Breast Health Clinic, Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre

PUBLIC OPEN HOUSE Get a sneak peek inside the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre, located at the corner of 140th Street and Fraser Highway in Surrey, by joining us at our public open house Monday, May 30 from 3pm – 7pm. For more details go to www.fraserhealth.ca

Women within the Fraser Health region will have access to a special Breast Health Clinic that streamlines and significantly reduces the diagnostic process for suspected breast cancer, starting June 1 at the Jim Pattison Outpatient Care and Surgery Centre. The clinic, based on the European Society of Mastology (Eusoma) model, will bring together the equipment and specialist’s necessary to provide a definitive diagnosis 99 per cent of the time, in less than 21 days from when the appointment at the Clinic is booked. The current average is three months for diagnosis. Quicker, accurate answers Surrey resident Heidi Kerr, who is currently being treated for breast cancer, recalls how distressing it was to wait six weeks for a diagnosis after having an abnormal mammogram. “The waiting is definitely the worst part,” Kerr said. “The fact that you don’t know: do you have cancer or do you not have cancer?” Much of the delay in the typical diagnostic process is due to several appointments at different locations. The Breast Health Clinic has a multi-disciplinary, integrated approach that provides same-day access

for three key tests – physical exam, medical imaging (mammogram and/or ultrasound) and tissue sample (biopsy) – and ensures coordination between specialists to provide a faster, accurate diagnosis. These tests can often be completed in one visit.

imaging equipment and reduce patient travel within the building. A special waiting room will provide breast health patients with a calming, private space while waiting for their tests when several are performed on the same day.

"I have always had great compassion for the women who are going through the diagnostic cascade for months and all they want to know is, do I or don't I?” said Dr. Peter Doris, head of surgery at Surrey Memorial Hospital and physician lead for the Breast Health Clinic. “We're eliminating unnecessary delays in a one-stop-shop environment.”

Importance of regular check-ups It’s important to perform breast self-exams regularly and have a medical breast exam at least once every 24 months. If you have a change in your breast please see your family doctor. Your doctor can refer you to the Breast Health Clinic at the Pattison Outpatient Centre if further investigation is required.

This “triple assessment” will be supported with Surrey’s first digital mammogram unit, which will produce more detailed images and enable the use of new biopsy equipment that can rapidly and accurately identify a greater range of lesions. Many women will get a definite benign result on the same day, and a large percentage will receive a definitive diagnosis in as little as seven days. Only a small proportion of cases will be complicated enough to require 21 days for diagnosis. Patient-centred approach The second-floor location for the Breast Health Clinic was chosen to provide ready access to

By age 50, women should make screening mammograms part of their regular health routine once every two years. For easy access, the BC Cancer Agency’s Screening Mammography Program has added a new location that will reside within the Pattison Outpatient Centre on the same floor as the Breast Health Clinic. To book a screening mammography appointment please call 604-877-6187.

Party in danger As schools arrive at their annual completion date and youngsters get itchy for things to do when classrooms are closed, this is a good time to remind folks of an incident that occurred in Chilliwack – too close to home to be ignored – a short time ago. An adult was arrested after hosting a party with underage children, and providing them with alcohol. A 15-year-old girl went to police with allegations that she was sexually assaulted by a 32-year-old male who was the host of such a party. It probably comes as no surprise that police have reason to believe there have been other parties where underage youth were invited or were allowed to attend, hosted by older men who provided them with alcohol. The fact that no formal charge was initially laid in the alleged incident points out the risks to everyone involved in such parties. Advantage can be taken of impressionable youngsters – while would-be hosts of such illicit parties put themselves at danger of accusations that could compound their already significant liability for illegally influencing minors. But it’s those impressionable teens – many of them looking for opportunities to party at this time of year – about whom we are most concerned. And parental awareness is key to their safety. Many party invitations or call-outs come across electronic media and social networking sites and applications these days. Monitoring your kids’ telephone and computer activity isn’t about being nosy or intrusive, it’s about applying adult discretion where youthful inexperience can leave your young ones vulnerable. You could also try an old-fashioned method of keeping your kids safe: talk to them. In the old days, some parents even enjoyed the exercise. – B.G. • For some pointers on how to manage online activities so your family can feel safer and more secure, we have more online at www.langleyadvance.com, click on ‘Opinion’

City developing congestion

Come meet the “Canucks Green-Men”

his worship’s hired guns stated that doing so would not fit into the City’s plan for Michaud Crescent to be a pedestrian pathway. My question to that paid official is, how can a street like Michaud Crescent, twice as wide with traffic that moves two to three times as fast as that of 54A, be a “pedestrian pathway”? Doesn’t make a lot of sense to me, but obviously, being one of the unwashed masses in Langley, I’m probably not supposed to understand. I guess our saving grace on our newly narrowed one-lane street is the fact that only a couple of the 69 units available in the previous development have sold, and this new development is a year away, so traffic has been the same as usual. But Mayor Fassbender needn’t worry about the money. I’m sure the tax revenue check is in the mail. Bill Romswinckel, Langley

Hypocrisy appointed

Dear Editor, With just some two weeks past the recent election, Stephen Harper appoints one defeated Tory candidate and re-appoints two other defeated Conservatives who had resigned their seats to run in the May 2 campaign. Consider the words found in Harper’s statement to the press, announcing these selections: “Our government will continue to push for a more democratic, accountable and effective Senate.” What doublespeak. Maybe a question should be asked of our recently elected MP regarding his opinion on stacking the Senate with defeated Conservative politicians. But perhaps the answer can be found in the Nov. 16, 2007, Hansard in which Mark Warawa was recorded as saying: “Mr. Speaker, I appreciate the comments that we have heard from the government House leader. I have also heard from my constituents that they are not happy with the Senate in its present form. They are asking for changes. They support what the government is proposing. They do want to see an accountable Senate. They would like to see senators elected, so the

Province dragging heels

Dear Editor, The Ministry of Natural Resources Operations has named Katzie First Nation as the successful proponent from their Request for Proposals process to operate and manage facilities at Pitt-Addington Wildlife Management Area (formerly known as Grant Narrows). That’s the good news. The bad news is that this May long weekend, paddlers and boaters will be disappointed to find only a parking lot, dock, and sanitation facilities, because the Katzie are still waiting for the government to finalize the contract details and then sign off on the deal which includes canoe and kayak rentals. “We’ve been negotiating with the province for more than two years,” said Katzie First Nation Chief Jay Bailey. “We were fully prepared to take over on Jan. 1, but had to work through the government RFP process. We had hoped to be fully operational by now and ready to welcome visitors for Victoria Day weekend, but our hands are tied. We have to stand by until the deal is finalized.” Metro Vancouver, the previous leaseholder, removed all their assets from the area on Dec 31, 2010, as a requirement of the end of the lease, and the province has been responsible for managing and maintaining the site since that date and until a contract is signed. Chief Bailey said, “We had presented comprehensive plans to the government to operate the site, to the same levels as before, with future plans to improve the services available. But for now, this popular recreation area is the sole responsibility of the province.” Debbie Miller, Chief Negotiator, Katzie First Nation For more letters to the editor visit... www.langleyadvance.com

Dear Editor, Once again, Fat Cat Fassbender is caving in to developers and creating another congested situation on 54A Avenue in Langley. When he allowed a 69-unit complex with only 81 parking spots to have their parking garage empty onto 54A Avenue, instead of the rear of the complex like every other complex on the street, it seems he has set the standard for added congestion on Langley streets for real estate developments. Now there is complex of townhomes to be built at the corner where Michaud Crescent and 201A Street and 54A Avenue come together.

The biggest bike around rolled through Langley streets on Tuesday, raising money for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. “It’s really great to see the young people coming out,” said Bike Bike coordinator Jessica Harman. Nine teams sat down on the 29 seats of the Big Bike and took turns pedalling it through the streets of Langley City, starting at the City’s lawn bowling greens, up to Fraser Highway, and then past the Douglas Park Recreation Centre. The teams came from workplaces, clubs, and associations that came together for one day to raise some money. They included groups like Hearts in Motion, a

Her grandmother was diagnosed with heart disease, prompting Roberts to organize the team of her co-workers. A fit group, composed mostly of personal trainers, they had no trouble pedalling the bike around the centre of Langley City. The Big Bike is entirely human-powered, and requires between 14 and 29 riders. It exemplifies the drive to heart-healthy living the Heart and Stroke Foundation promotes. “It’s also a great teambuilding experience for everyone involved,” said Danny DeSouza, the foundation’s area manager. He was pleased to see that on Tuesday, teams were raising in excess of the $3,000 that is the average for a Big Bike ride. The first two teams to ride on Tuesday raised more than $4,000 each.

Farmers return with goods to market in the City Warmer weather marks the start of the Langley Farmers Market. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Fruits and vegetables, flowers and herbs, wool and jewelry. The Langley Farmers Market is starting up again this month, and there will be more than food on the tables of vendors at the Kwantlen Polytechnic University campus. “We have some terrific vendors already lined up,” said Gary Jones, a horticulture instructor and one of the organizers. This is the third year for the market, which is held on Wednesdays, this year from 2 to 6 p.m. On the opening day, May 25, at 3 p.m., there will be a ceremony involving the mayors of both Langleys to mark the start of a new year. The market quickly

became one of the most successful new farmers markets in the province after its start three years ago. Many new markets are lucky to have 10 vendors in their first year. Langley averaged 26 new vendors in 2009, and 27 last year. They included everything from typical farmers market fare, of fresh fruit and vegetables, to a variety of other hand-made products. Farmers market rules mean vendors must make it, bake it, or grow it. That means jewelry and wool are not out of the question. This year, Jones said some cheese producers are expected to take part. The market is not an insignificant economic engine for Langley. Last year it had gross receipts of around $175,000, Jones said. That has a disproportionate impact because the money stays in Langley.

Langley Advance files

Shoppers peruse flowers and other goods at the Langley Farmers Market last year. The market re-opens on May 25 this year. “That money goes straight back to the local producers, the community where the food is grown,” Jones said. Kwantlen Polytechnic is allowing the market to use

its parking lot again this year. Shoppers will still have to punch in their stall numbers and get a parking ticket to use the lot, but they will be able to

get their ticket payment refunded by the merchants or from the market itself. Signing up as a vendor is relatively easy, Jones said. There is no problem with signing up later in the sea-

son. With the last market planned for Oct. 5, Jone said vendors can sign up as late as Oct. 4. For more information see www. langleycommunityfarmersmarket.com.

Open your door Worms not just for birds to summer. Composting

A recent workshop eased Langley residents into the wonderful world of worm composting.

Be FRESH, SAFE, SECURE and BUG-FREE in clean, contemporary style!

by Becca Schortinghuis Special to the Advance

f the early bird wants to get the worm, it will first have to battle a group of Langley residents who recently got their hands on several pounds of them. Young and young at heart alike gathered on May 9 for the year’s first worm composting workshop provided through a partnership between the Township of Langley and the Langley Environmental Partners Society. The evening workshop, held at the society’s field office in Murrayville, dispelled some common misconceptions about worm composting. “People think it’s hard, and that it’s going to smell,” said workshop leader Sarah Atherton, “but, that’s only going to happen if you don’t look after it properly, and it’s really easy to worm compost.” Starting with some basic facts about worms, Atherton led participants through the steps of creating their own worm compost bins. Budding composters filled their empty bins with shredded newspaper, small amounts of soil and sand, and half a pound of red wriggler worms per bin, she explained. The workshop continued with a discussion on what to feed the worms, and closed with some tips on collecting the finished compost. Each participant went home with a func-

Asked why she was interested in worm composting, workshop attendee Sharon Welsh said, “It gives me something to do with all my vegetable and fruit scraps, and then I can take the compost back to my garden plot to enrich the soil with something organic, rather than chemical fertilizers.” continued on page B5…

Country singer gets tuned in to rodeo Fresh off her latest visit in Nashville, 19-year-old Langley singer Emily Taylor Adams will be performing at this weekend’s Cloverdale Rodeo. by Troy Landreville tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

R

odeo and country music are as compatible as flapjacks and maple syrup. So intertwined are they, superstar Garth Brooks recorded two hit songs, Rodeo and Much Too Young (To Feel This Damn Old) about ropes and reins and bulls and blood. So it was a bit surprising to find out country crooner Emily Taylor Adams is not a rodeo aficionado. “I went last year, the first time I actually went and watched the rodeo,” the 19-yearold Langley resident said. “It’s really cool.” Taylor Adams knows a little bit about singing at the Cloverdale Rodeo, though, having performed there the past five years and counting. The annual rodeo, a Cloverdale institution, will be celebrating years of tradition this May long weekend as it marks its 65th anniversary from May 20-23. This Sunday, Taylor Adams will perform a pair of 45-minute sets on the Outdoor Entertainment Stage at the rodeo fairgrounds. She’ll be on stage 1:15-2 p.m. and 3:45-4:30 p.m. She can’t wait for Sunday to arrive, saying stage fright is one gremlin she doesn’t have to fret over once she takes the mic. “I don’t get nervous, nope,” she said. “The only time I ever get nervous is in front of people I know. I’d way rather sing in front of 100,000 people I don’t know and I’ll never see again, than five people I know.” Awarded the 2010 BCCMA Female Vocalist of the Year, Taylor Adams is home after her most recent stint in Nashville, where she worked on songs for her next album while living and collaborating with singer-songwriter Jamie O’Neil. “I met her in January when I went down [to Nashville] with a couple

of friends,” Taylor Adams said. “She’s a songwriter as well. One of my friends is friends with her and he hooked us up and we met. It’s been awesome. I sang for her and played my guitar for her, and she decided she wants to mentor me.” Her latest trip marked her sixth visit to Nashville, where Taylor Adams spent three weeks writing songs for record number two. “It was great,” Taylor Adams said. “I’ve got some awesome songs. I can’t wait to record them, hopefully.” Making music is something Taylor Adams seemed destined to do, from the time she was old enough to “walk, speak, and hum,” she noted. Calling Rascal Flats and the Dixie Chicks major influences, Taylor Adams said she enjoys the storytelling aspect of their music, something she tries to emulate. “I love telling stories in my songs,” she said.

On Sunday, she’ll debut a couple of the songs she wrote in Nashville. Taylor Adams describes Rush as a love song and a Jealousy as a “haunting, dark song.” Writing lyrics is not easy, she said: “You have to make sure it makes sense and people like and can relate. I just started to become a songwriter so I’m still getting used to it and learning a bunch of new stuff.” Expect to hear two cover tunes during Taylor Adams’ performances Sunday. She puts a personal spin on Kansas’s Dust in the Wind and Joan Jett’s I Love Rock and Roll. “We made them country,” she said. “We made them both, me. They are definitely a couple of my favourites.” Taylor Adams’

eponymous debut, released in February, 2009, is available on iTunes and on her website, www.emilytayloradams.com. If her career really begins to take wing, Adams hopes to get a place in Nashville. She’ll be back in Music City, USA, in June. “It’s amazing,” she said, about Nashville. “I love it. Once you get there, all of the sudden you get this huge rush.”

You can catch Langley songstress Emily Taylor Adams on stage Sunday at the Cloverdale Rodeo. Troy Landreville/Langley Advance

‘Cowboy up’ weekend

T

he Cloverdale Rodeo will be celebrating years of tradition this May long weekend as the popular family-friendly event marks its 65th anniversary. The Cloverdale Rodeo and 122nd Country Fair combines a unique blend of world-class rodeo action, free-with-admission entertainment, and a brand new Extreme Sports Zone from May 20 to 23. Top ranked cowboys and cowgirls compete for $360,000 dollars in prize money in four events. Headlining this year’s free Sunday night show is the iconic Canadian band Doug and the Slugs. And, after the concert, and for the first time ever, families can enjoy a free outdoor movie in the Stetson Bowl. And, of course, entertainment will take folks well into the evening. They can kick back and enjoy some great country music in the Longhorn saloon, with long-time rodeo favourite Ken McCoy, and Appaloosa. Cloverdale Rodeo is held at the Cloverdale Fairgrounds. Admission to the grounds is $12 (free for kids six and younger). Rodeo tickets begin at $20. A detailed schedule and tickets are available online at www.CloverdaleRodeo.com.

Appaloosa, featuring Langley’s own Randi McMillan, will be performing on the Longhorn Saloon stage throughout the Cloverdale Rodeo weekend.

hile some attend this weekend’s Cloverdale Rodeo for the bull riding and broncs, others will go to soak up the fair ambience, and others want to be thrilled on the midway rides. But there are a few folks specifically heading out to the long-standing Victoria Day weekend festivities at the Cloverdale fairgrounds just to see Langley’s own Randi McMillan and the band Appaloosa perform. McMillan, a 24-year-old South Langley resident, recently hitched her saddle to the long-running country music band, which has been playing the bar and festival circuits in B.C. for many years. She joined Appoloosa in January as the

Consequently, her musical energies were redirected to voice, and McMillan spent two years studying classical before discovering musical theatre in high school and taking to the stage. “I just like to entertain anybody, and everybody,” she said. “I have a lot of fun on stage. Music is really fun.” While singing doesn’t come as easy for McMillan as it does for some, she’s committed to working as hard as necessary to ensure this is her livelihood for years to come. “This is my first time being on the Cloverdale Rodeo stage,” McMillan said, expecting this will be her biggest audience yet. She and Appaloosa will be performing Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night from 6 p.m. to 2 a.m. at the Longhorn Saloon. After Cloverdale, the next big show for Appaloosa is at the Merritt Mountain Music Festival. They’ll be on stage July 9.

Swing dance couple steps back from events riorities have shifted, forcing newlyweds Omer Mahmood and Shannon Braithwaite to step back as organizers of several different community events. Almost a year ago now, the couple made a decision to discontinue the monthly Fat City Swing dance and music events they’ve hosted for nine years. The last event will be June 3. But more recently, Mahmood shared news that they will no longer organize the Langley Jazz Festival or Swingin’ In the Park, either. “That’s it,” said Mahmood, who said they both clings to a life-long love of jazz music and swing dance. They will continue to teach dance, and perform at corporate events and weddings. In fact, Mahmood still clings to his dream of opening a supper club in the Lower Mainland sometime in the next five years. His vision will be a “Fat City on steroids.” For now, the couple wants and needs to refocus attention on careers for now – Braithwaite is immersing herself in the theatre/film world, while Mahmood is a financial advisor. “It’s taken the fun out of dancing for us. We want to, and need to, take a

Shannon Braithwaite and Omer Mahmood share a love of swing and jazz that helped bring them together as a couple. break,” Mahmood explained. “So, Swinging in the Park is gone. It was a direct off-shoot of Fat City, so it’s gone this year. We’ll re-examine that next year,” he elaborated, not completely closing the door on this four-year-old event being revived at a future date because it’s free, fun, and low-maintenance. “As for Jazz Fest, Envision has been really kind over the years,” Mahmood said. But with the need to keep growing and changing an event of this type requires significant funding and time. He and his wife no longer have the time or resources to commit. “We’re running into funding issues, and honestly, it’s too much work for me and Shannon… I don’t see that resurrecting without more funding and

a lot more people involved. While the couple is happy to turn over the reins for the event, they’ve had no indications anyone else is willing to step up. The festival ran as a full-day event for four years, then last year was scaled back to a mini festival, before finally being cancelled. “It’s a lot of work and we don’t have the funds and I don’t want to ask musicians to just play for free,” he said. “If we want the Langley Jazz Festival to be reputable, we can’t do it on freebies.” Mahmood describes letting go of the festival as “bittersweet.” “There’s a lot of blood, sweat, and tears that went into the Langley Jazz Festival… But, you can only take something so far with passion, then...”

he taste of victory was still being savoured Wednesday by members of Langley Players theatre group, after the thespians won top honours at a regional theatre festival this past weekend. The honour, explained Players’ president Angela Bell, has also earned them the chance to compete in the provincials in July. For their productions of Lost in Yonkers, the Players won best production, Mary Renvall won for best director and best set design, Bunny Patterson won for best costume design, new Players’ member Sue Sparlin won for best actress, and Ashley Sutton won for best supporting actress. Adjudicator Andrew McIlroy thanked the local group after Friday night’s show, applauding the dramatists for what he described as a “beautiful evening of theatre,” recounted Bell. Competing against six other theatre groups, the Players won in six of the 12 categories, earning them a chance to now compete July 4 in Kamloops, at the provincial competition called Mainstage. “We’re thrilled,” Bell told the Langley Advance. “We worked really, really hard and we’re really proud. We could have powered a small town with the cheering.” In the meantime, the Langley Players will have a few more showings of their winning play in June. Bell said they’re looking at two or three showings that will serve as fundraisers as well as an opportunity for the team to get back into the swing before going to the B.C. championships.

Relay for Life

Thursday, May 19, 2011 | LangleyAdvance

Did you know that you are participating in the largest cancer fundraising event in Canada and one of the largest in the world? In 2010 more than 188,000 participants attended one of 490 events. Together Canadians raised close to $53 million. There were more than 37,500 survivors who walked the Victory Lap. And over 600,000 participants lit luminaries in honor of or in memory of loved ones. And the events were organized with the help of 45,000 volunteers. Last year in BC and the Yukon, more than 16,500 participants were involved in 51 events and raised $5.4 million. More than 2,600 survivors celebrated by walking the Victory Lap. Participants lit almost 15,300 luminaries and 6,900 volunteers made it all happen. I am very proud of the contribution of BC and Yukon communities.

Langley Advance files

Luminaries line the track at McLeod Athletic Park every year as walkers remember those they have lost to cancer. It is a somber moment amid the usually upbeat Relay for Life celebrations.

These funds make it possible for the Canadian Cancer Society to invest in life saving cancer research and clinical trials, lead prevention initiatives and deliver trusted information and caring support to people with cancer.

Charity

Relay aims for a big year

Relay For Life is about the power of an idea and the passion of people who are committed to fighting cancer. Relay For Life is about life not cancer. Relay For Life also makes it possible for the Canadian Cancer Society to have more impact against more cancers that any other cancer charity. Thank you for your contribution.

The annual Langley Relay for Life is one of the biggest annual cancer-fighting walks in B.C.

Haircut

Girl crops hair for cancer patients A Langley elementary school student followed in her sister’s footsteps, donating her hair to make wigs. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com Peyton Tait, nine, was looking forward to her most recent haircut a bit more than is normal. “I was really excited!” said the Noel Booth Elementary student. “She wouldn’t stop talking about it,” confirmed her sister Kennedy. She’s been growing her hair for three years, but a few weeks ago she had most of it trimmed off, and will donate it to

make wigs for cancer patients. Most cancer patients lose their hair during chemotherapy. “I felt that they needed it more than I did,” Peyton said. She’s following the example of her older sister, Kennedy, now 12, who had her hair trimmed for the same cause when she was eight years old. Kennedy will in turn have her own hair trimmed again once it gets a bit longer. The sisters have volunteered for the Langley Relay for Life for several years. Along with their dad, they help haul supplies to the camp sites where the Relay teams will spend the night. This year, Peyton plans to stay up all night without sleeping.

Relay for Life

Dancer against cancer

A Maple Ridge mom offered belly dancing lessons to raise money to support her team’s efforts in the Langley Relay for Life.

The Annual Return-It to Win-It™ Contest is Back!

by Troy Landreville tlandreville@langleyadvance.com

MAY 1 - SEPTEMBER 5, 2011

Lausanne Ham is determined to fight cancer, one hip shake at a time. The Maple Ridge mom of two hosted a “learn to belly dance” class Sunday at the Dancing for Dessert Studio in Langley. “The belly dance went amazingly well,” she said, adding that about 20 people showed up for the class. The total money raised, after paying some costs, was $275, and Ham said more is coming in from people ordering extra copies of the CD and wanting to try another class. “We had a wonderful dance lesson with lots of laughter and sheer energy,” she said. Donations are going to the Canadian Cancer Society, and Ham’s fundraising goal is $500. “I’m from Iraq and belly dancing is in my blood,” said Ham, who, along with her family of 12, came to Canada from northern Iraq in 1995. “It’s who I am, it’s where I come from. Turn on the music and my body starts moving.” Ham said belly dancing is for people of all body types and the secret is to simply enjoy the movement. “If you focus on losing weight, you aren’t going to have any fun,” she said. “It’s the

art of experiencing how beautiful it is to be a woman.” For the second consecutive year, Ham and her team are taking part in the cancer society’s Relay for Life event at McLeod Athletic Park in Langley. “I raised about $85 [last year] by practically begging people to sponsor me,” said Ham, who works as a care aide, primarily at the Maple Ridge Seniors Village. “This year my co-workers said, ‘Lausanne, you belly dance right? Then why don’t you teach us and others to belly dance for a good cause and raise money that way?’” She listened to their advice. Ham’s belly dancing tips won’t end at Dancing for Dessert. She has agreed to put on a lesson at 2:30 in the morning May 28, during Langley’s Relay For Life, and the class is open to all participants. “Relay is an amazing experience where we all stay up all night walking the tracks,” Ham said. “We have to stay awake because our boss told… our team [Care Givers MRSV], if any team member falls asleep during the relay, other teammates will ‘Sharpie’ on [the] face of [the] sleeper.” All jokes aside, Ham said cancer never sleeps, and for one 12-hour period, she and others will stay awake all night to raise funds for finding the cure. That’s a tough assignment for a person who is admittedly “not a night person.” Ham said as a care aide, she sees the anguish cancer causes. “The people I look after,” she said, “I see what cancer does to their precious bodies.”

The Langley Advance is again organizing its own Relay for Life team, and this year one member is offering some incentive to help bring in donations. Reporter Matthew Claxton will shave his head if he gets $1,000 in donations by May 27. He’s already part of the way there, as his

co-workers seem quite eager to see him get a new haircut. “This will actually be a lot more fun than the last time I lost some hair to raise money for Relay for Life,” Claxton said. “I had my legs waxed a couple of years ago.” Like many of those taking part in the Relay, Claxton has personal reasons for taking part. His father, Bob Claxton, died of cancer at the age of 58. There are more than 70 teams signed up to take part in this year’s Langley Relay for Life.

Fundraising

Concert helps two women do mission work in Thailand Local talent has agreed to help two young missionaries.

T .

he Chief Sepass Theatre may be a long way from Thailand but the people who head to the Fort Langley theatre this Friday evening will be helping half a world away. Walnut Grove’s Samantha Pasielski is spearheading an evening of entertainment to raise money. The show is called Heart of Hope – Destination Thailand. She and Janna Cressman are heading to Thailand to set up a Disciples Ready in Mobile Evangelism (DRIME) team. DRIME is through Power to Change (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ).

Audiences will see performers Zac Park and Courtney Bridge while Miss Canada 2011 Tara Teng (right) will act as host Friday. “This evening is a fundraiser for my six-month missions trip to Thailand in June. My teammate and I will be leaving for six months to start up a DRIME base,”

she said. Pasielski and Cressman will be using street drama to minister to residents there. This will be Pasielski’s sec-

ond missions trip to Thailand. After three weeks in the country last summer she was simply in love with the Thai people, she explained.

The fundraising concert features local singers Courtney Bridge and Zachary Park, and Source Dance Company and DRIME. The event will be hosted by Miss Canada 2011 Tara Teng. The May 20 show runs 7-9 p.m. with the doors opening at 6:30 p.m. In addition to the line-up of diverse talent, there will be a raffle, a booth about DRIME and a concession. The theatre is at 9096 Trattle St. (part of Langley Fine Arts School). Advance tickets are $15 and available at Blessings Christian Marketplace, 19638 Fraser Hwy. Or people can contact Pasielski at 604-803-3732 or heartofhope_destination_thai@hotmail.com for tickets. Tickets will be available at the door for $20.

Busy bees Working for Honeybee Centre in Cloverdale, a group of beekeepers visited a property in Fort Langley to check on the resident bees. Their duties are to make sure the bees are healthy and have enough food, and that the bee colony’s queen is alive and laying eggs. The centre’s bees are spread out in different yards. In a couple of weeks the bees will be re-located into blueberry fields. Honeybee Centre is the largest provider of honeybee colonies for blueberry pollination in British Columbia. The centre’s bees also pollinate raspberries, pumpkin, squash, kiwis, apples, cranberries, currents, strawberries, and blackberries.

Campers on pickups not real RVs an RV, said Township administrator Mark Bakken, unless it has been permanently attached to the truck. The new rules for RVs allow parking and storage in front yards from May 15 to Sept. 15, as long as they are at least 1.6 metres from the property line. RVs can also be stored in side or back yards. The issue has been contentious, with RV owners pleading their case for months.

by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com Langley Township council clarified what, exactly, is and is not and RV when it’s parked in a driveway. The Township staff said Monday that campers mounted on trucks are not considered RVs when it comes to bylaws about storing them. That type of camper is not considered

Soon, placing food scraps in a special container instead of in the garbage will also become instinctive. “Like most things, it is a matter of changing habits,” said Debbie Fleming, solid waste coordinator for the Township of Langley, which launched its new Green Can campaign in May. Through Green Can, residents who receive municipal garbage collection can put all of their food scraps and leftovers, including meat and bones, out for pick-up in the same container as their yard trimmings. “It is still the same yard trimmings program as before, but we changed the name to Green Can to reflect that you can now add food,” Fleming said. With about 20,000 households benefitting from Green Can service, thousands of pounds of compostable waste will be kept out of the garbage dump, cutting down on greenhouse gas production. “Nearly 40 per cent of all household garbage is compostable,” said solid waste coordinator Robyn Cooper, noting that composting costs less than sending material to the dump. Food scraps collected from Township residents are used by The Answer Garden Products, to produce commercial and residential compost. Food scraps composting is also the now the law. On May 16, Township council passed a bylaw that requires food scraps to be kept out of the garbage, and the Green Can program is the easiest and most convenient way to comply. To take part in Green Can, residents who receive municipal curbside pick-up service need three things: a container for collecting food scraps right in the kitchen, an 80 litre can for curbside collection, and a decal identifying the can’s contents. Kitchen containers can be purchased at local hardware stores or made from an empty ice cream pail with a lid. Use it to collect food scraps and leftovers, then empty it into the 80 litre container, along with yard trimmings and food-soiled napkins and paper towels, and place it at the curb for the weekly neighbourhood collection date. continued on page B9…


LangleyAdvance | Thursday, May 19, 2011 B9

…continued from page B8 Residents may want to line the kitchen container with newspaper or a kraft paper bag, both of which can go in the larger container for pick-up. Those who already have 80-litre yard trimmings containers can continue using them. Just add food scraps in with the yard trimmings. Those who need a curbside container should purchase one that has a tight-fitting lid, holds 77 or 80 litres, and weighs less than 20 kg (44 pounds) when filled. It should be made of rigid plastic, have a removable lid and two durable handles for safe emptying, and be strong enough to hold up to use. Kitchen containers used to collect food scraps should not be put out for collection. Collection containers must be identified by the new Green Can or old yard trimmings decals, and be placed on the curb by 7:30 a.m. on regular pick-up days. Have the decal facing the street. Green Can decals are available at the Civic Facility, at 20338 65th Ave., at the Operations Centre, 4700 224th St., and at all

It’s all in the can: Robyn Cooper and Debbie Fleming of the Langley Township’s engineering division demonstrated the new Green Can program available to residents with municipal curbside collection service. Yard trimmings and now food scraps – either loose or in a kraft bag – can all go into one sturdy 80litre can identified by the new Green Can sticker or the old yard trimmings decals.

Project one day behind Despite hurdles, AOK organizers are confident the house renos will be done for Monday. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com Drywall repairs are more extensive in the Grochowski family’s Aldergrove home than expected. That’s the latest hurdle facing dozens of volunteers who are toiling together each day on the 2011 Extreme Home Repair – an annual 10-day renovation/remodel of a local home belonging to one family in need. Earlier in the week it was electrical surprises that were causing some delays on the Grochowski’s 267A Street home transformation. And, as of Wednesday, extensive drywall repair and replacement was threatened to put the project a day behind, said organizer Michael Dauncey, the Acts of Kindness pastor with Aldergrove Seventh-Day Adventist Church. “We’re a little bit concerned about the drywall. There’s a lot of drywall to be done yet,” Dauncey told the Langley Advance, acknowledging that he’s not a contractor and basing that assessment on the experts onsite. But determined to keep spirits high, he’s confident they’ll get back on track. “I have a strong faith that this is going to come together. We’ve never missed a deadline yet,” Dauncey said. “We just have to think positive.” Six members of the Grochowski family were temporarily evicted from the Aldergrove home last Thursday, allowing the AOK Extreme Home Repair to immediately begin demolition and efforts to restore the dilapidated two-storey home. This transformation, the biggest ever for the local AOK team, will be revealed when the family returns home late in the day on Monday, May 23. In the meantime, Dauncey said he’s astonished by the support this project has received. Not only are individuals donating their time and expertise, but businesses are stepping up with much needed supplies and labour, and some people and companies have offered the family gift certificates for food and services while they’re out of their home. • Stay tuned for more on the Extreme Home Repair in the Langley Advance’s online and print editions.

Wanna get dirty?

Head to Campbell Valley Regional Park for Saturday’s frog search. The Langley Environmental Partners Society and Metro Vancouver invite families to a frog search this Saturday afternoon. People should dress in clothes and footwear that can get dirty and expect their feet to get wet. Look for frogs that live in the

pond at Campbell Valley with the help of Metro Vancouver Regional Parks interpreters. Discover how to identify different types of frogs and marvel at the process of metamorphosis. Listen to tadpole tales, play some games or make a frog craft to

take home. It takes about one hour to do the activities. This is a free drop-in event that runs 1-4 p.m. People are asked to meet at the Visitor Centre, corner of 8th Avenue and 204th St. via the South Valley Park entrance. Anyone wanting more information can call 604-530-4983.

ARTHRITIS Great Sex

Happiness for couples is a satisfying sex life.

Pain free in 2 weeks!

This is what happened to me personally. After suffering for years I desperately tried everything, drugs, natural products,physiotherapy, acupuncture, magnets and nothing was of any real help. Finally I had relief in 2 weeks by taking shark cartilage that was specially processed to preserve the natural active ingredients. This is the kind we are now promoting. I realized then that there are over 50 million men and women that are battling the same illness and getting treatments that are not working well, otherwise we would not have this ongoing huge health problem. In the last 10 years we have helped tens of thousands of men and women to have less pain or no pain at all. This is a by-product of the food industry. No sharks are caught because of their bones/cartilage. Don’t let anybody confuse you. Nick A. Jerch, President #1 We have real EVIDENCE that it works. On our web site you find over 100 testimonials with full names and towns. All 100% true. Skeptics may call them. Here are some examples: ! Doctor suggested knee replacement after all his options failed with drugs and cortisone shots in knee and lower back. I recommend Bell Shark Cartilage to those millions suffering needlessly like I did for 40 years with arthritis in my knees. It's a shame that I was given drugs and injections all these years when a natural medicine could have spared me the endless torture day and night. Pat Laughlin, Coldwater, ON !My hip is 95% pain free. Pain killing drugs mask and Bell Shark Cartilage heals. Rebecca Hite, Oroville, CA!I tried another brand and pain came back. 2 weeks on Bell and pain is gone again. Gert Dupuis, Hanmer, ON!Cancelled knee replacement. I was in pain and limping. Have no more pain now. Can square dance for hours. Anton Melnychuk, Porcupine Plain, SK.

Got what it takes to be a Senior Star? Sign up

Seniors are invited to apply for local auditions of a talent contest that could take them to a national competition.

Senior Star, Canada’s largest talent competition dedicated to seniors, is offering Langley residents a chance to shine. Now in its fifth year, this singing and musical instrument competition is open to anyone 65 years and over and a

Canadian resident. Langley Gardens Retirement Community is hosting a regional audition on June 9 starting at 1 p.m. The talent competition is sponsored by Chartwell Seniors Housing REIT, which includes Langley Gardens amongst its 150 retirement residences and care homes. “Chartwell’s Senior Star has grown to be the largest celebration of seniors’ talent in Canada,” said Brent Binions, Chartwell’s president. “We are proud to support the incred-

Registration forms can be obtained at Langley Gardens at 8888 202 St. Contestants do not have to be living in a Chartwell residence. The regional competiIrene Reed, of Cloverdale, sang at tion will take place on the national competition in 2010. June 16 from 6-9 p.m. at Langley Gardens. During the regional competition, contestants are given a maximum of five minutes to sing a song, play an instrument, or do both, and their performance is videotaped. Musical accompaniment is provided to singing contestants, if required. A panel of three judges, made up of local musical experts, government officials, and media representatives choose the top three local contestants, each of whom will be recognized with a Senior Star trophy. Videos of the first and second place winners from across Canada are then submitted to a celebrity panel of judges including Dan Clancy, Tim Louis and Gordie Tapp who will narrow the list to nine competitors invited to compete in the Senior Star National Final. The national final will be held in Niagara Falls Nov. 21.

Revamped Thunder getting ready to rumble Langley’s WLA squad has a raft of new faces in its lineup as players and coaches look to bounce back from a disappointing 2010 season. by Troy Landreville

sports@langleyadvance.com

Langley Advance files

Langley Thunder’s Kyle McEwen went airborne as he took a shot towards the Nanaimo Timbermen goal during Western Lacrosse Association action last May at the Langley Events Centre. three months, starting with their season opener Friday in Victoria against the Shamrocks. To be a playoff team, Thunder has to harness its aggression while being a prickly team to play against. “It’s a fine line, right? We need to scratch for every victory, so if the players get the mixed message that we want to goon it up and spend most of their time in the penalty box, we’ll lose every game,” Jensen said. “We need to play feisty and support each other. Those things will build momentum, build team trust, and give us some ‘Ws’, definitely.” Jensen said the Thunder “will do most of the dictating

adrenaline coursed through his body, even as he stood at the relative safety of behind the players’ bench. “I’m sure as the season goes on and I see the wear and tear on the guys, I’m going to miss it a lot more,” he said. Rhodes is the technical director of the BC Lacrosse Association. He directs all coaching clinics, official clinics, Team BC programs, and regional coaches. ••• “Fresh” is the other word that comes to mind for the 2011 Thunder. A fresh start is in order after a disheartening 2010 season in which the Thunder take a step back after punching their firstever ticket to the post-season the year before. After going 10-7-1 and making the playoffs in 2009, the Thunder fell to 6-12 last season. They ended up tied for last place with the Burnaby Lakers in the seventeam WLA. ••• The Thunder play their second game of the season Sunday in Maple Ridge before making their 2011 home debut Wednesday against the Coquitlam Adanacs.

“New” and “fresh” are the buzzwords around the Langley Thunder as the Western Lacrosse Association team gets set to kick off its 2011 campaign. New, as a new head coach and an assistant coach new to the position – but definitely not the team. Rod Jensen replaces Randy Delmonico as bench boss and in doing so, has big shoes to fill. Delmonico served as head coach for the 2009 and 2010 campaigns, and in his first year with the club, guided the Thunder to its first playoff appearance in Langley. That season, he was awarded the Dorothy Robertson Memorial Trophy as WLA Coach of the Year. “Randy did a good job with our club,” Thunder general manager Gerry Van Beek said. “We thank him and we appreciate it, and he did nothing wrong.” For his part, Jensen has strong credentials. Most recently, he helped the Coquitlam Junior Adanacs win their firstever Minto Cup (Canadian championship for junior A lacrosse). Jensen also worked last winter as defensive coach with the Calgary Roughnecks of the National Lacrosse League (NLL). It’s a position he was unable to fulfill this season for family reasons. “I’ve been watching this team for a number of years – I coached the Coquitlam Adanacs from 2005 to 2007 – and this is a young, feisty group that was right on the cusp of going to the next level,” Jensen said. “So far, so good [this season]. I think these guys are awesome. They’re hungry, good team players, and we have talent, so that’s good to start with.” Jensen said he’s bringing new systems. “We’re not going to re-invent the wheel, but I think… they need some direction.” Priority one is making a return appearance in the playoffs, which the Thunder will be working towards for the next

out there, and not most of the receiving. That’s our game plan.” Joining Jensen behind the bench is firstyear assistant coach Darcy Rhodes. He will work as the team’s offence and strength/conditioning coach. Rhodes played 12 seasons with the Thunder (in North Shore, Okanagan, and Langley) after an illustrious junior A career with the Port Coquitlam Saints. He joins Jensen and defence coaches Shaun Springett and Fred Klomp on the Thunder staff. It’s a reunion of sorts: Rhodes’ first coaches in the WLA were Jensen and Fred Klomp. His last coach in the WLA was Springett. Rhodes’ lacrosse abilities and leadership saw him become the captain of both the Thunder and the Saints, so coaching is a natural fit for the affable 33-year-old. “I decided to hang ’em up, and Rod Jensen gave me an opportunity to become an assistant coach, and I couldn’t pass it up,” Rhodes said. He said that, during the Thunder’s pre-season game, versus Maple Ridge,

The Trinity Western University Spartans track and field team added a major piece to its puzzle May 5 with the signing of Scottish high jump champion Emma Nuttall. The 19-year-old from Edinburgh is Scotland’s reigning national senior and U20 indoor high jump champion. She also possesses a share of her country’s native record (with Jayne Barnetson) at 1.83 metres, a feat she accomplished while winning gold at the 2011 Scottish Senior Championships. “It’s a great day for Spartan athletics to have Emma sign a letter of intent,” said Laurier Primeau, the Spartans track and field and cross Emma Nuttall country coach, and former head Track and field athlete coach of Scottish Athletics. “Emma embodies the complete champion approach, possessing strong leadership characteristics and has a good academic record. And of course, her performances athletically speak for themselves as she is currently the No. 2 ranked U20 high jumper in the United Kingdom.” Primeau said that, with a personal best of 1.83m (six feet) which Nuttall accomplished before her 19th birthday, “we look forward to some outstanding jumping from Emma as well as great contributions off the track.” Nuttall’s jump of 1.83m earlier this season was not only a personal best and a national record-tying leap, it was also a performance that would have put her on top of the podium at this year’s CIS championships by five centimetres, as the women’s high jump gold medal went to the University of Toronto’s Sarah Boyle with a jump of 1.78m. Nuttall’s 1.83m personal best is just one centimetre shy of Jeannie Cockroft’s 26-year-old Canada West Championships record of 1.84m and just four centimetres under the CIS championships record of 1.87m, which has been held by UBC’s Tami Lutz since 1986. “It’s really exciting to be coming to Canada,” Nuttall said. “I came over with Laurier [Primeau] because he was my coach back in Scotland. It’s really an exciting opportunity. I like the campus. I like that everything is so close together and there’s so many different facilities. There’s everything you need but it’s not too spaced out. I’m thrilled to be joining the Spartans this fall.” Nuttall graduated from Craigmount High School and comes to Trinity Western with plans to study history.

Hoopsters on a mission to be better

The Spartans are headed off to “do God’s work.” The Trinity Western University men’s basketball team left May 14 for a 17-day missions and training trip through Italy, Croatia, and Montenegro. The humanitarian portion of the trip will focus on helping orphanages, volunteering in an institute for people suffering from paraplegia, and helping to run local basketball clinics. The trip begins in Rome, then Florence and Ancona, to Dubrovnik, Croatia, finishing in Montenegro. “This is an amazing opportunity to do God’s work,” said Spartans forward Lucas Nugteren. “It will also be a life experience for my teammates and I to have the opportunity to reach out and help those you need it.” Last year, the squad travelled to South Africa with Hoops for Hope.

Calvin Westbrook and the TWU Spartans men’s basketball team are touring Italy, Croatia, and Montenegro for a 17-day missions and training trip. With a number of key fifth-year players no longer with the team, including Jacob Doerksen and Tyrell Mara, this year’s trip is about building a cohesive foundation for the coming ball season. “It allows our team to really discuss what our mission is for next year,” said Spartans coach Scott Allen. “I think we have most of our future

players going on the trip, and what it does is it allows us to talk about our team goals, what are our aspirations and just how we can keep each other accountable.” Spartans guard Calvin Westbrook added, “We’re going to have a chance to bond as a new team. A lot of the younger guys will be playing more minutes and have more impact on the game this year, and I think the trip gives us a chance to build a new team. It’s the first thing we’ve done without all the old guys.” The team returns to Canada May 31. The Spartans are coming off a CIS silver medal-winning season. After qualifying for the national championship for the first time ever, the Spartans beat Lakehead and UBC before falling to Carleton in the gold medal match.

Langley golfer pots a single in opening Langley golfer Melissa Mabanta wowed the crowd with a hole in one in Squamish this week in the opening round of the CN Canadian Women’s Tour. The 22-year-old managed the feat on the Squamish Valley Golf Club’s No. 5 hole, a par 3 listed at 168 yards. “I had Conor on the bag with me today and he gave me good advice,” Mabanta said, smiling at her caddie. “He just told me what to hit – an easy 4-iron. I pulled out the club and had a swing. I actually didn’t see it go in, but I heard everybody screaming. It was really exciting.” Despite the eagle, she finished the round at 7 over par, tied at 66th in the field of 89. Langley’s Sue Kim finished the opening round with 4 over par, tied at 27th and well behind leader Joy Trotter of California, who came in at 3 under par.

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: Although many things remain to be handled in money areas, life starts to lighten up. A restless feeling enters for the next four weeks, as do short trips, errands, lots of conversations and casual meetings. These weeks bring your first opportunity in some months to make peace with someone who has been quietly but strongly opposing you. You should make peace, or come to some understanding (especially Monday, Friday/Saturday) because this person has the upper hand, and will for some time. It might even be your mate! Happiness early, weariness midweek, then energy Friday/Saturday. Taurus April 20-May 20: The weeks ahead emphasize money, earning and spending, possessions and memory work/learning. (Dante said there’s no learning if you understand but don’t remember.) Be ambitious Sunday/Monday. Despite a wee frustration Sunday morning, most factors line up for success, especially Monday. Happiness, social joys and optimism enter midweek! But retreat Friday evening to Saturday – rest, plan, contemplate. Employment or health matters could face an obstacle Friday. Patience and thinking will show the way past it. Your charisma keeps shining, right into June: continue with projects. Gemini May 21-June 20: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness climb over the four weeks ahead. Start important projects, tackle chores that intimidated you, ask favours, chase someone. Through June 3, life (and your efforts) can bring social breakthroughs, light love, freedom, or bring you a true mate, a lucky relocation or a beneficial contract! But by subtle stages, now to June 2012, you’re turning toward quiet solitude, charity, governmental links, institutional connections, and administrative tasks. These will be lucky. The hustle-bustle world won’t be. Joy has barriers Friday, none Saturday!

Cancer June 21-July 22: This week and the next three are a “cross-over.” Part of your life will be tired, restricted, seeking rest, solitude and contemplation. You want to sum up and plan. Another part will be social, optimistic, seeking fun and looking forward to future events. This second part is emerging, and will, by late June, win out for a year, bringing great luck, social delights, wish fulfillment, light romance, and a love of life! But every spring needs a cold March, so we can prepare. Use these weeks ahead to plan, fulfill obligations, and clear your desk. A career might come true. Wisdom, midweek. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Two themes occupy you over the next four weeks: career, ambition and prestige relations (e.g., with VIPs) are one. The other is wish fulfillment, light romance, social joys, optimism and “future gazing.” In the long run, now to June 2012, the ambition area will prove more powerful and more beneficial. But for the month ahead, social delights, flirting and optimism win out. (In this, though, be willing to deepen flirtation into real romance, and don’t believe all the “social promise” you see.) Be gracious: a VIP, boss or parent will be impatient into mid-late June. Opportunity, Monday! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: Although the ambitious side of your life is emphasized for the next four weeks, don’t throw everything into this area – and DON’T do anything unethical to get ahead, don’t change jobs, don’t push or dare a boss or parent, and don’t launch a business. That advice holds right into August 2012. Do, though, accept anything that comes to you. This year and a half demands strict “morality” from you: on the good side, in two weeks you start a year-long period of wisdom, understanding and gentle love. But avoid legal hassles for four weeks. Attraction, midweek! Financial caution Friday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

May 22 - 28, 2011

Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: Legal, cultural, love, international, higher education, far travel and publishing themes enter until late June. In addition, the next two weeks might bring (or further) a life-mate attraction or a major opportunity. But don’t lean too heavily on this entire (legal to publishing) zone, for it might promise more than it delivers. Simultaneously, through the weeks ahead, an accent grows on secrets and secret action, sexual desires, lifestyle changes, investments, commitments: these will benefit you greatly from June to June 2012! Romance frustrates Sunday day, but night’s magic! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The bulge of work that piled on you over the last half year (and last summer) is quickly ending. Now through June 2012 your efforts will be rewarded with opportunities. But you might briefly lose direction during the few weeks ahead. Some advice: for two weeks, continue to accept responsibility, extra work. For four weeks, be wary of committing yourself deeply, whether it’s a financial, sexual or lifestyle commitment. (E.g., moving to Alaska is a lifestyle commitment.) Wariness is warranted in these zones right into August 2012. For four weeks, don’t fight. Midweek, romance. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: Both opportunities and opposition face you for a few weeks. A romance might turn to life-mate decisions. Relocation, agreements, contract negotiations, litigation, these arise. But be wary of all these: now through August 2011, they might contain pitfalls. If you feel you’re chasing an always-elusive or ever-receding goal, opportunity or relationship, turn your back on it, completely. If it just falls into your lap, accept. Soon work duties will expand, maybe hugely, to fill the 12 months ahead. Huge success could follow! Steady your nerves; learn to work without stress.

Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: The four weeks ahead emphasize work, health and machinery concerns. Don’t give everything to this area – especially, don’t bury yourself in work to avoid other, scarier things such as romance. Romance, creative and speculative urges, pleasure, beauty, sports and games – these mildly intensify now, and will grow to huge proportions during the 12 months ahead. During the same year ahead, you’re going to meet good luck in administrative, governmental or institutional situations. Careful with money Sunday – chase it Monday. Nice friends midweek. Home irks Friday, soothes Saturday. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: A month of romance, creativity, pleasure and beauty starts now. Kids will charm you, you’ll excel at sports and games. You’ll ride a winning streak! But many matters at home, or affecting your security, intensify now. This can bring friction as well as affection, talk and action. Use these weeks to prepare, if possible, for an extended (year-long) period of good luck in this zone, which will arrive June 4. Study real estate ads, for example, or retirement plans, or get repair/reno quotes. Your energy and charisma soar Sunday/Monday. You might attract love! Money, midweek. Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The weeks ahead feature security, your domestic situation, real estate, rest and recuperation, Mother Nature, nutrition, gardening. Do what you must, but don’t plunge wholly into these areas, and don’t begin big important projects here. You might want to end some associations and projects, and to begin others – but this would probably cause a lot of talk, and lead nowhere. Some very interesting trips and lively new friends are on the horizon, but they aren’t here yet. Rest, meditate and plan Sunday/ Monday. Your energy rises nicely midweek. Money irks Friday, succeeds Saturday. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
