With the Vancouver Canucks on the final leg of what they hope will be their journey to their first ever Stanley Cup, a North Langley resident holds fond memories of the team’s initial run to the final. In the spring of 1982, Gord Glups was a 14-year-old Canucks fan. His dad had season tickets, allowing father and son to take in games three and four of the ’82 Stanley Cup final at the Pacific Coliseum. They watched as their beloved Canucks lost twice to a New York Islanders’ dynasty on its way to winning the third of four consecutive Stanley Cups. Glups was planted in a seat in the “lower reds” near centre ice on Sunday, May 16, 1982 when the Canucks lost 3-1 to the Islanders, who completed a four-game series sweep. Now a 43-year-old married father of three boys ages six, nine,

The price for each of those tickets in such a prime seating location: $22.50.

Boy, have times changed. “Twenty-two, fifty: my parking was more than that when we went to two Canucks’ games this year,” Glups said. The “sports” room in the Glups’ household is stocked with Canucks’ memorabilia from the ’82 playoffs, including hockey cards, records of the song “Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Him Goodbye” recorded in 1969 by the Swedish group Steam, and the first white

towels ever waved by Canucks fans – or, more than likely, any sports fans, for that matter. The towels were created to support former Canucks’ coach, the late Roger Neilson, who held up a towel on the blade of a stick in a mock gesture of “surrender” to referee Bob Myers during game two of the Campbell Conference final versus the Chicago Blackhawks.

A 43-year-old father of three looks back at the Canucks memorable run to the Stanley Cup final 29 years ago.

Routley area residents angry about the loss of a school district owned site in their neighbourhood are going on a walk at 7 a.m. Tuesday. They will walk the routes children as young as five are expected to take from their neighbourhood to the nearest elementary school in their catchment area, Willoughby Elementary. They’d like Premier Christy Clark, Education Minister George Abbott, Langley School District trustees and staff, and Langley Township council and senior staff to go along and see routes kids are expected to take. For many in Routley, the distance is more than 3.5 kilometres and requires crossing 200th Street. Most of the route has no sidewalks. Parent Rena Terry and other parents who are calling for a school in their neighbourhood (around 198th Street and 70th Avenue) were at a special meeting May 31 with the school board and the Township.

For Langley City’s Dave Bishop, most work days start and end on a bike. Bishop is one of the community’s long-time bike commuters, traveling from his home to his job at the Surrey City Hall’s print shop almost every day, rain or shine. “I’ve been riding basically all my life,” he said. This week is Bike to Work Week in B.C., when people who normally drive or use transit are urged to try a bicycle for a week. For a few locals, however, every week is bike to work week. Bishop remembers being eager to get his driver’s licence when he was a teen. His father told him not to be so excited, saying that eventually driving a car would become boring. Bishop found that was true. So more than 14 years ago, he largely gave it up, opting for a daily ride. “No road rage,” he said of the change from a steering wheel to a set of handlebars. Bishop isn’t a competitive rider. Almost all his

Boozing takes its toll on group of teens by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Langley RCMP broke up a group of teenagers drinking in a City park on Friday night, and had to take several of them to the hospital.

When officers arrived to investigate a complaint of teenagers drinking in Douglas Park, a group of about 30 kids scattered, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the local RCMP. Three young girls walked away from the officers, and refused to stop until they had passed a bottle they were carrying to a nearby boy. Two of the three were so drunk, they were arrested for public intoxication, Marks said.

Both of the girls arrested were 14 years old. One of the girls couldn’t walk any further and slumped to the ground, unconscious. An ambulance took her to the hospital for treatment. The second girl became belligerent, and she was taken into custody. At the Langley RCMP detachment, she, too, passed out, and an ambulance took her to the hospital.

A third young person was also taken directly from Douglas Park to the hospital. “Potentially, if these young girls had gone untreated, the consequences of their actions could have been deadly,” Marks said. If this party had taken place in a remote wooded area, the children might have gone without medical attention and could have been injured or died, Marks said.

Charge laid in rave case

Colton Ashton McMorris, 18, of Maple Ridge, is charged with sexual assault. His trial is set to begin in Port Coquitlam on Feb. 27, 2012, and is scheduled for three weeks. A 16-year-old charged with producing and distributing child pornography in the case is set to appear in court again this September. On Sept. 26 he has a trial confirmation hearing at the Port Coquitlam court. This hearing typically occurs before the trial or preliminary hearing to determine if the length of time set aside for a trial and the trial date are still accurate. A trial date has not been announced for the young man at this time. The alleged incident took place on a Harris Road property last September, and photos of the assault appeared online and were shared on Facebook.

Dennis John Allen Warrington, a 19year-old from Langley – who also has strong ties to Maple Ridge – has been charged with producing and distributing child pornography and to court. He appeared in court on May 31 for an application for warrant, and is set to appear again on June 7 in Port Coquitlam to fix a date for his trial. He is charged in connection to the alleged sexual assault of a teenage girl last September at a rave in Pitt Meadows. The other man connected to the rave will be back early next year for his trial.

We stand behind our work. The Lower Mainland has many jewellers, but one Langley jewelry store keeps customers coming back again and again with their custom work and on-site fabrication. Pachauers Jewellers, a family owned and operated business has been operating on Fraser Highway since 2002. Owner and goldsmith Kirk Pachauer and his son Todd create custom jewelry and do repairs in a shop attached to the retail portion of the store. Because fabrication is done on-site, customers have the unique opportunity to meet the men who will be creating their jewelry, something usually not possible for retailers who buy from wholesalers. “Our business is based on repeat business, this is our philosophy, so therefore we make every effort to be fair to the customer and keep our prices as low as we can,” said Bev Pachauer, wife of goldsmith Kirk Pachauer. “Our work is good. Sometimes [elsewhere] you don’t get a bargain when you think you do, but we’ll stand behind our work.” Another unique service offered by Pachauer is their policy of using customers’ recycled gold in their own repairs.

Stolen cable recovered by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Two men are facing charges after police found them trailing 50 feet of stolen cable behind their truck early Wednesday morning in Brookswood. A resident near 32nd Avenue and 200th Street called the police to report seeing wire laying in the road, said Cpl. Holly Marks, spokesperson for the Langley RCMP. While police officers were heading for the scene, a second call came in about an older-model pickup dragging cable down the road. One of the officers found a truck that matched the description and pulled it over. He noted that about 50 feet of cable was lying next to the truck, attached to a rope. Another coil of cable was lying in the truck’s box. The two men in the truck, Surrey residents aged 37 and 47, were arrested and face charges of theft over $5,000 and mischief over $5,000. The 37-year-old is also facing charges of breach of recognizance for breaking a curfew, and for possession of wire-cutting tools. Marks thanked the members of the public who called in tips.

Finally, wallet fatigue sets in The first muted alarm bells began going off this week, as reports of “consumer fatigue” began circulating. Apparently, Canadians are not capable, or perhaps simply not willing, to spend the economy back to the stratospheric heights it reached pre-recession. Spending growth in the first quarter of the year was the lowest since about 1998. Canada’s economy spent much of the recent decade artificially juiced up. Largely due to the U.S. sub-prime housing boom, and the rise of China, money was flowing in from every direction. Asia needed oil, minerals, and lately, lumber. Canada could provide them, prices rose. At the same time, there was a sense that the good times were never going to end. So Canadians spent, and kept spending. And then it all crashed back down to earth. Canada was lucky, relatively speaking. Our recession was not quite as brutal, our housing stock not quite as bubbly as in the United States. But the three-legged stool our economy was built on – Chinese demand, sub-prime mortgages, and debt – is still wobbly. During those free-spending years, Canadian household debt reached new, shocking levels. The average Canadian owes $112,000. Debt is growing at more than six per cent a year, while wages are growing at about 4 to 4.5 per cent per year. In December, the level of Canadian household debt exceeded the American level. Yet despite these unsustainable numbers, we’ve got commentators worrying that Canadians will stop spending. Canadians will stop spending eventually, no matter what happens. They can either stop now, pay off the credit cards, and work on saving, or they can stop later – when they go bankrupt. Frankly, we’d rather they slowed down a bit now, even if it does give the economy a bit of a shock. – M.C.

Human rights

Commission needs new look

ishment just to be subject to a complaint. To add to all of this, the CHRC continues to lobby Parliament to create more rights over which it can have jurisdiction. And if someone has a concern with how it is operating, there is no complaint mechanism by which the commission or tribunal can be held accountable. After incredible public opposition, the CHRC hired its own expert and gave him $50,000 to review its practices. Even he concluded that the censorship powers of the CHRC had to be removed. Yet nothing has been done. In the last Parliament, former Liberal MP Keith Martin brought forward a private member’s motion to reform the CHRC. The Conservative Party voted overwhelmingly to do the same at its last policy convention. Yet still nothing has happened. The CHRC continues to undermine the fundamental freedoms of Canadians. With a Conservative majority government and with incredible public support, now is the time to reform or even remove the Canadian Human Rights Commission and Tribunal. Mark Penninga, Langley

Dear Editor, Only weeks ago, Langley Township council voted to increase our taxes by 3.95 per cent, with only Mayor Rick Green and Councillor Kim Richter opposing the budget. Though they all declared there was no more fat to cut, now extra money has been found to give to some foreign country. Langley taxpayers have been lied to even more so than Gordon Campbell did about the HST. I have no doubt that supporting the Canadian International Development Agency is a noble cause. We Canadians are a very charitable society. Within Langley there are many groups that exist solely on charity. I do not want my property taxes paying someone else’s chosen charity.

Forcing us to support the charity of council’s choice by raising our taxes is arrogant and wrong, no matter how noble the cause. Council has robbed us of the pleasure of supporting the charity of our choice. They fail to realize that increased taxes have limited our ability to support a hurting child, cancer research, earthquake/tsunami relief, or whatever is on our hearts and minds. Township council has chosen to increase our taxes to allow themselves and Langley staff to go visit their own personal charity. Our taxes are not charity, and never will feel like charity, regardless of how warm and fuzzy council tries to make it.

Dear Editor, Why are my tax dollars paying for a Liberal campaign for HST? This was their issue, and it should be paid for by the Liberals. Why am I, as a taxpayer, paying for something that the BC Liberal party has imposed on us without any discussion? This was part of the Liberals’ hidden mandate, and it should not be coming out of my pocket. I pay enough taxes. I should not be paying for the Liberals’ shortcomings, mistakes, screw-ups, or underhanded behaviour. Debbie Atkinson, Langley

My teen sons tell of feeling left out and “alien” with their friends when they are ridiculed for not liking the Canucks. My oldest son posted on Facebook that he was hoping the Canucks lost so everyone could go back to normal.

Dear Editor, As Mr. Warawa and 165 of his Conservative colleagues return to Parliament Hill with a strong mandate, now is the time to take a good look at our Canadian Human Rights Commission and Tribunal (CHRC). All sides of the political spectrum agree that this quasi-judicial body has deviated far from its original mandate. The following facts speak loudly: The tribunal doesn’t have to abide by the standard rules of justice that are the norm in the courts. Hurt feelings are enough to find someone guilty of a crime. Regular legal defences of truth, fair comment, and lack of intent to harm don’t apply to the CHRC. As a result, for 32 years the CHRC had a 100 per cent conviction rate for cases pertaining to Section 13 of the human rights code (hate messages). Activists love the federal and provincial HRCs, because they can launch a complaint and have all their expenses paid, while the person they complain about has to cover their own expenses and get their own legal help (thousands of dollars), regardless of their innocence or the outcome. It is a pun-

Idol-ize

Virginia’s World Was Shrinking

Thirteen contestants from around the Lower Mainland showcased their talents singing and playing music in the Senior Idol auditions at Renaissance Retirement Resort on May 28. There was also an audition in Surrey a few days earlier. This is the sixth annual Senior Idol contest. Ten finalists will be chosen from the Langley and Surrey contests, and those finalists (Terry Kirstien, Doug Robinson, Joy Tucker, Thelma Gibson, Christine Till, Tony Hurley, Sony Bakker, Alicia Crestefo, Steadwick D’Penha, and Michael Olexson) compete June 9 at Cascades Casino when the $1,000 prize is awarded. Tickets for that show are available at the door. Admission is by donation with the money going to the Langley and Surrey hospital foundations. For more information about Senior Idol, call 604-539-0571. A second senior talent contest, Senior Star, is coming up. The first round of auditions is June 9 while the top eight acts will perform June 16. Both performances happen at Chartwell’s Langley Gardens in Walnut Grove. Tickets are free but people must book in advance by contacting 604-8818113 or cpors@chartwellreit.ca. Regional winners can earn a shot at nationals this autumn.

Now she has so much to look forward to When Virginia was on her own, she lost touch with people. Aside from the holidays and occasional outings with her family, she spent a lot of time at home alone. Now that Virginia lives in a Chartwell residence, she is surrounded by people with similar interests and experiences. Her new friends are quickly becoming her best friends.

Langley’s Food for Friends programs seem to be satisfying a real hunger in the community. The recipe is simple. Provide a weekly mid-day gathering for local seniors and a balanced lunch for only $3. The seniors take care of the rest – namely socializing. What started in a couple of Langley neighbourhoods as a way

to ensure seniors could enjoy an activity that feeds both the body and spirit has grown in popularity to include six weekly luncheons. To mark National Seniors Week, Food for Friends has teamed up with the Langley Township Fire Department and the Gateway of Hope for Food for Friends at the Firehall on June 7. Gateway is providing the meal – still $3 – and the firefighters are serving it all up. The organizers have arranged a tour of the hall, a fire safety presentation, opportunities to see and take

photos with a 1949 fire truck and firefighters, and a meet-and-greet with Township Mayor Rick Green. There will be a Second World War Salvation Army mobile canteen. “This is great for us because these trucks during the war was the start of Meals on Wheels around the world,” said Dave Stark, MOW executive director. The Food for Friends program organizers have arranged for busing. Space is limited for this special Seniors Week activity, so people attending must register with their local Food for Friends contacts.

dren, the centre has now taken on a kind of scavenger hunt feel. They can open things and manipulate items, and it’s a more hands-on experience than the old centre. The orientation video that was formerly shown in a theatre in one of the recreations of buildings inside the Fort walls is now shown in the Visitor Centre. The renovation of the reception area is one part of the massive renovation of much of the Fort site. The walls of the wooden palisades have been shored up or replaced – a project that included archaeologists poring over excavations in case something interesting was uncovered – new lighting has been added, some key historial buildings have been shored up, and access has been improved. The changes will allow the Fort to take on some new roles in the next few years. Starting this summer, the Fort will begin opening itself for private evening events, including weddings and corporate events, Banovich said. The new Visitor Centre had its grand opening on the Victoria Day weekend, to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the founding of Parks Canada. There are still a few touch ups to be done in coming weeks.

Lillia and Caleb Hildebrand check out the renovated Visitors Centre at the Fort Langley National Historic Site.

Roommates share Vancouver stage How to win Local duo tackle good and evil in The Great Divorce. by Roxanne Hooper rhooper@langleyadvance.com

on’t ever let anyone say acting isn’t hard, because it’s one of the “most multi-faceted, challenging, complex processes a human can endure.” This view shared by local Sarah Ruth, as she – along with roommate and fellow cast member Julie Casselman – perform in their first professional theatre production together. Back in early March, Ruth and Casselman were cast in The Great Divorce, currently on stage at the Pacific Theatre until June 18 in Vancouver. The pair are from Langley, and performed in numerous high school plays before enrolling in the School of Arts Media and Culture at Trinity Western University. They both share a passion for acting, and they’ve both been cast into small roles within this adaptation of a C.S. Lewis story. But that’s where most of their similarities end. Ruth, 19, sees this as a stepping stone to a career in film and television, while her 22-year-old roomate, Casselman, has years of experience in dance, theatre, and music doesn’t share Ruth’s fascination for being in front of a camera. “I’ve always loved the arts,” said Casselman, who is in her fourth year at TWU, getting her bachelor of fine arts in acting, with a music minor. After graduating, “I want to focus on acting, playwriting, and music composition,” Casselman said. In contrast, Ruth aspires to be in front of the camera, in movies like the ones her family watched regularly. “I have known since I was a little girl that I wanted to be an actress. My family has a huge love for movies, and movie nights were always a big part of growing up,” Ruth told the Langley Advance. In her second year at TWU, she said: “Once I’m done there, I hope to start auditioning for TV and film, so I can be in those

Casselman was quick to answer: the experience and the people. “I think my favourite part of the process has either been learning what it means to be working as an actor in a non-educational environment – understanding the responsibilities and what I’m capable of doing within such a short period of time – or getting to A pair of tickets to see work with some of the Trinity grads The Great Divorce whose work I really respect.

Langley’s Sarah Ruth

Langley’s Julie Casselman movies we used to watch as a family.” In The Great Divorce, Ruth is playing the Artist Ghost, a young painter obsessed with fame, as well as the character of Frank, a man who is so consumed with self pity that he can barely speak and must use a Tragedian attached at the end of a long chain to speak for him. She remembers reading Lewis’ book during high school, and as part of the class assignment at the time wrote a short story as if she was Frank, and she was visiting her sister, one of the great Spirits of Heaven. “When I auditioned for this play, I originally wanted the role of Sara, who was kind of the inspiration for my sister in that short story; I thought I had somehow ‘spiritually graduated’ and was ready to portray a great spirit. When I was cast as Frank, I wasn’t disappointed because I was just happy to be a part of the play, and especially a part of that scene,” Ruth commented.

he Murrayville Performers were scheduled to put on the show Dirty Work at the Crossroads, a lively production that harkened back to the melodramas of the 1890s. But producer Kate Major announced early this week that the show has been cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. The show was to have run June 3-4, and June 10-11. The local theatre troupe is now making alternate plans to stage the production in the fall. “Watch for further news of the Murrayville Performers after the Canucks win the Stanley Cup and everyone is back from summer holidays,” Major said.

New exhibit opened

A

exhibit titled Construction/ Deconstruction, featuring the works of Maple Ridge artist Kristin Krimmel, opened Wednesday, June 1 at The Fort Gallery. It will run until June 19. Krimmel’s work was inspired by the large amount of construction that went on around Metro Vancouver leading up to the 2010 Kristin Krimmel Winter Games. Krimmel said she is interested in the “guts” of an image, in the shapes,

Company Jump

Music

Swing favourites brought to life

by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

T

hree Lower Mainland singers are keeping the spirit of the Andrews Sisters alive with their show Company Jump – An Andrews Sisters Tribute, which comes to Langley June 10 and 11. The shows are the first Langley performances for Nadine Tremblay, Andrea Isaak and Marie West. They will be crooning old favourites such as Boogie-Woogie Bugle Boy, and Don`t Sit Under the Apple Tree along with many other swing hits from the 1940s. Company Jump brings the swinging sounds and on-stage antics of the Andrews Sisters to life. A true family-friendly event, this show weaves brassy and seamless

vocals with swingin’ dance and plenty of audience interaction. The show, which has been touring for four years, is suitable for audiences of all ages and will entertain anyone who enjoys catchy tunes, 1940’s style, swing, and good clean fun. “Regardless of the audience demographic, everyone is encouraged to be as raucous as World War II G.I.s serving overseas would have been,” said Tremblay. Visit companyjump.blogspot.com for updates and pictures. The trio has rented the Bridge Community Church for its show. Company Jump is being performed at the church, 5521 Brydon Cres., on Friday, June 10, and Saturday, June 11. Tickets are $10 and are available in advance at Wendel’s Bookstore in Fort Langley (604513-2238). Additional tickets will be available at the door for $15. Doors open at 7:30 p.m., show at 8 p.m. when the trip down memory lane begins.

Kositsky calls for road upgrades Firecracker sparks incident

A decisive end to the 200th Street and Zero Avenue issue has been put off for more input. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Langley Township Councillor Mel Kositsky felt he’d heard enough to make a decision about a controversial street closure in South Langley. At Monday night’s council meeting, Kositsky put forward a motion to keep the closure of 200th Street and Zero Avenue permanent. In addition, he called for

road improvements to several nearby streets, such as the intersection of 8th Avenue and 200th Street, 208th Street north of Zero, and 4th Avenue. “The issue, it’s not going away,” Kositsky said, adding that traffic will continue to grow and nearby roads need improvements. However, other councillors moved to defer the decision. After a recent public forum on the issue, they haven’t yet received a report from staff summarizing all the issues raised. “I think we’re a little premature,” said Coun. Bob Long. Kositsky’s plan was deferred for discussion until after the report is heard by council.

Residents of the surrounding area are split on whether they would like to see the intersection opened or not. Some living on Zero Avenue, and most of those on 200th Street south of 8th, want to see the road remain closed. They cited fears that opening the road will turn it into a major highway, with cars speeding back and forth during rush hour. Meanwhile, some residents on nearby roads say they’re bearing the brunt of drivers heading down side roads to get to Zero. The group wants 200th opened, as was promised before the High Point development was built.

While both police and neighbours though the sound was a gunshot, it later turned out to be a firecracker. The police found three suspects just after the loud bang. Officers told them to raise their hands and lie on the ground. Instead, the teens took off running. A canine unit tracked down two suspects, boys aged 16 and 17, and a ski mask and balaclava were also found. A home and two cars had been covered in toilet paper and egged. Over a dozen police officers responded to the incident, said Abbotsford Police, thanks to the belief that a shot had been fired. The teens, from Abbotsford, now face mischief charges.

by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Abbotsford Police and Langley RCMP converged on a Fraser Highway housing development early Wednesday morning, after a report of masked suspects. A private security guard called police at about 1:30 a.m. to report that masked people were in a new development in the 27000 block of Fraser, just over the municipal border from Aldergrove. When the police arrived, they found two cars parked in the area. A 17-year-old girl said her friends had just left the cars for a bathroom break. While police were interviewing her, a loud bang was heard.

Langley Mounties have released a sketch of an armed robbery suspect who held up a woman at knifepoint in Aldergrove. The woman was walking on a path that parallels Fraser Highway, west of 265A Street, just after 2 p.m. on Feb. 24, said Cpl. Holly Marks of the Langley RCMP. A man walked up and asked for a cigarette. The woman declined to give him one, and he pulled a knife. He reached into her pocket and took some money, grabbed the groceries she was carrying, and ran away. The suspect is Caucasian, between 30 and 40 years old, about 6’3” tall with a thin build, crooked yellow teeth, and medium-length brown hair. He was wearing dark clothes, possibly a mac jacket, and he appeared very dirty, Marks said. Anyone with information should call the Langley RCMP at 604-532-3200, or, to remain anonymous, call CrimeStoppers at 1-800222-8477. CrimeStoppers can also be found online at www.solvecrime.ca, on Facebook, and through text message by sending a message starting BCTIP to 274637.

Late volunteer recognized by Matthew Claxton

WALK-IN WORKOUTS

The late Lynn Fripps will not only have a school named after her, but the nearby park as well, Township council announced Monday. Fripps’ husband Simon vander Goes, and their three sons, Benjamin, Nicholas, and Adam were at the council meeting to hear the news. The park, on 83rd Avenue in Willoughby, will be adjacent to the already announced Lynn Fripps Elementary. It will have two soccer fields, a ball diamond, and a children’s play area, and will share some facilities with the school. Fripps was an outstanding community volunteer, said Township Mayor Rick Green. She was involved in creating Aldergrove Neighbourhood Services, was a member of the Aldergrove Community Enhancement Society and Aldergrove Revitalization Committee, and of the Bertrand Creek Enhancement Society. Fripps battled breast cancer for several years, dying in 2005. One of her last projects was the Shower of Thanks Campaign, which encouraged those with cancer to send thank you cards to cancer researchers.

Trampoline and tumbling gymnastics

Pair soars to national title

Flip City Gymnastics in Walnut Grove is now the training ground for a pair of national champions. Tyler Vermeulen and Douglas Armstrong returned home from the Canadian Gymnastics Championships in Charlottetown, P.E.I with two medals each, and a Canadian title between them. The Flip City members teamed to win the Open/Youth synchronized trampoline crown, with a strong performance in the finals held last Saturday at the University of Prince Edward Island. Armstrong, 15, also placed third in individual trampoline in the

youth category, and qualified to represent Canada at the World Age Group Championships being held in Birmingham, England, this coming November. He qualified in both trampoline and double mini trampoline in the 15- to 16-year-old category. Armstrong was actually in a position to medal in double mini at nationals, but had some problems in the finals, falling to seventh after qualifying in third place. “As qualification for World Age Groups was based on either prelims or finals, he was already qualified by the time finals happened,” explained Flip City coach Rusty Pierce. This will be Douglas’s third trip to the World Age Group Championships, having already competed in 2007 in Quebec City, and St. Petersburg, Russia, in 2009.

Vermeulen, who turns 17 this year, finished just behind Douglas on trampoline, taking fourth spot among youth men. He also represented B.C. in the team finals in tumbling and trampoline, where he won another individual bronze medal. Entered in the 17- to 18-year-old category for World Age Groups, Vermeulen fell just shy of the qualifying score for his category. Vermeulen is hoping to qualify at the second trials, being held in Alberta in late July. Remy Neumeyer, a third Flip City athlete, represented B.C. at this competition as well, in the Novice 15-and-older category in power tumbling. Unfortunately for her, she was hampered by an ankle injury, and was not able to perform at her best, finishing in 16th place.

Men’s soccer

FC clips ’Caps Rain of near Biblical proportions cascaded down on Willoughby Tuesday evening, but that didn’t stop the Gold Key Langley Athletic FC Super 20 and Vancouver Whitecaps prospects teams from battling to the final whistle. While the men’s soccer match was considered an exhibition friendly, the pace at Willoughby Turf was intense, despite Mother Nature’s best efforts at a wash-out. In the end, the hosts came away with a 3-2 victory, powered by a pair of first-half goals from Jordan Marini and a second-half tally from Jerome Lou.

••• On Sunday, Langley travelled to Lacey Wash., where it blanked Thurston County Premier 5-0. Lou, Carlos de Aguila, and a secondhalf hat trick from substitute Nate Turner provided the offence. ••• Langley Athletic FC provides top class soccer for boys leaving the youth system. A member of the United Soccer Leagues, LAFC is in the Northwest U20 Division. Langley’s next USL Super-20 home game is this Sunday at McLeod Athletic Park versus Surrey Revolution FC. Game time is 2 p.m.

The Langley Thunder faced some of the best peewee A1 lacrosse teams in the province last weekend at the Trevor Wingrove Memorial tournament in Coquitlam. In its Friday opener, Langley ran into penalty trouble against Port Moody, taking eight minor penalties in the opening frame. The Thunder recovered to tie the score at 5-5 near the end of the second period. Port Moody went on to score seven unanswered goals to win 12-5. Spencer Mitchell was awarded the Thunder’s game star for his gritty play. Langley then faced the Saanich Tigers in its Friday night contest. The teams traded the lead several times during the first two periods before Langley pulled away in the final frame. Hugh Brown scored a hat trick and Caleb Pearson notched two goals and an assist in the Thunder’s 9-4 victory. Cole Radke was awarded Langley’s game star, playing one of his best games of the season. On Saturday afternoon, the Thunder faced the peewee A1 league-leading Ridge Meadows Burrards. The Burrards showed their skill in a 14-1 win. Baxter Anderson was excellent on the defensive press and received the Thunder’s game star. Ridge Meadows went on to win the tournament 6-4 over the host Coquitlam Adanacs.

The Langley Xtreme, sporting their bronze medals post-triumph, won at a fastball tournament in Kelowna last weekend.

Fastball

Xtreme battles to bronze in Kelowna Langley clawed its way into a spring fastball tournament semifinal. Battling injuries, sickness, and a shortage of rest, the Langley Xtreme ’95 fastball team still managed to show some sizzle at a tournament in Kelowna last weekend. The Xtreme came home with a bronze medal from the Kelowna “B” Spring Sizzle held May 27-29 at High Noon Park. The Xtreme squeezed into the semifinals, despite finishing 10th out of the 17 teams after the round robin. The team entered into its first playoff game against seventh-place finisher Delta Sunfire, and won by a single run. They then went on to beat the second-place overall round robin squad, the Kelowna Heat. This was followed by a very close, one-run loss to the Richmond Islanders. Langley capped the tournament by beating the North Delta Invaders in the bronze medal round. Individual highlights included Teal Delaney-Hird and Kianna Kimorowski both hitting their first home runs of the season at the tournament. The rest of the team included Alyssa Brown, Jessica Leslie, Robyn Pederson, Amber Gundmundson, Katie Murray Courtney Thorne, Tannis Yakabuski, Cassidy Peterson, Decen Cosens, Rachel Openshaw, and Sarah Tingren.

Local Roadshow Expert Examines Some Gold Jewellery

After many very successful shows around the Lower Mainland, The Roadshow is now here in Langley, BC. So you had better search through your attics and garages, go through your lock boxes and jewellery, because you may be sitting on a small fortune and not even know it! Roadshow experts are here to examine all your antiques, collectibles, gold and silver.

jewellery she was never going to wear anyways. Expert Elijah Gold explains, “We have noticed a substantial increase in the amount of precious metals such as gold and silver coming to the Roadshow, which makes sense considering how high it’s currently trading at. He added, “The Roadshow is great because it puts money in people’s pockets, especially during such hard times. Lots of items that are just sitting around collecting dust in basements and jewellery boxes can be exchanged for money, on the spot!”

During a show near Toronto, a woman came in with a jewellery box that she had just inherited from her late aunt. “I don’t wear jewellery,” explained Barbara Engles, “so it was an easy decision to come down to the Roadshow to sell it”. She was very excited when she was able to walk away with a cheque for over $2,100 for

At another Roadshow event, a woman, named Mira Kovalchek, walked in with a tin full of hundreds of old coins that were given to her as a young child by her grandfather. She finally decided to come in to the Roadshow and see what he had given her. She was ecstatic to learn she had coins dating back to the late 1800’s, some of which were extremely rare.

Roadshow consultant Perry Bruce explains “We had uncovered an 1871 Queen Victoria 50 Cent piece, valued at over $2,000!! She had a nice assortment of coins that were not rare dates, but she was able to sell them for their silver content”. She explains, “I never would have thought that my old tin of coins was worth so much! I can finally afford

to renovate my kitchen”. Perry Bruce continued, “Canadian coins prior to 1967, and American coins prior to 1964 are all made with silver, and we have noticed a large increase of customers coming to the Roadshow with coins and cashing them in for their silver value”. Experts at the Roadshow will evaluate and examine your items, FREE OF CHARGE, as well as educate you on them. The Roadshow sees hundreds of people during a one week event, and they have been travelling across Canada to different cities and towns, searching for your forgotten treasures. Trains, dolls, toys, old advertising signs, pocket watches, porcelain and bisque dolls, pretty much everything can be sold at the Roadshow. Any early edition Barbie’s are sought after by the Roadshow collectors, as well as a variety of Dinky Toys and Matchbox cars. Lionel Trains and a

variety of tin toys can also fetch a price, especially if they are in their original box or in mint condition. If a collector is looking for one of your collectibles, they often make offers to buy them.

A man brought in a 1950’s Marx Tin Toy Robot, in fairly good condition, still in its original box. We were able to locate a collector for that specific toy within minutes, and that gentleman went home with over $700 for his Toy Robot and a few other small toys. So whether you have an old toy car, a broken gold chain, or a Barbie sitting in the closet, bring it down to the Roadshow, we will take a look at it for FREE and it could put money in your pocket!

See you at the Roadshow!

Ben Asselin and Lolita cleared the B.C. Timberframe fence during the $25,000 Timberframe Grand Prix Sunday at Thunderbird Show Park.

Show jumping

Asselin rides to Timberframe win Teenager Ben Asselin captured top spot in the $25,000 grand prix competition.

by Pamela Saunders Contributor

Following in the footsteps of an Olympian could be hard on some young riders, but Calgary’s Ben Asselin seems to be right on stride with a stellar 2010 season and a big win in Thunderbird Show Park’s 2011 season opener at the Canadian Premier Tournament. The Equine Canada Junior Equestrian of the Year bested a field of 32 riders to bring both of his horses into the jump-off and earn top spot in Sunday’s $25,000 Timberframe Grand Prix. At just 17 years old, Asselin was one of the

youngest competitors on course, but he’s proving he can hold his own against the world’s top riders. Having moved up to the 1.50m classes last summer, he earned a place on the Alberta junior jumping team and headed to Kentucky. Five clear rounds on 13-year-old Oldenburg mare, Lolita, earned him individual and team gold medals at the North American Junior and Young Rider Championships. And it was on Lolita again that Asselin rode for the win in Sunday’s Grand Prix, up against 2008 Canadian Olympic silver medalist Jill Henselwood, and Irish legend Eddie Macken. Seven riders advanced to the grand prix jumpoff, with Jill Blunt and Shannondale leading the pack.

Blunt posted the fastest time, but tipped a rail to end with four faults. Asselin was next in with his 14-year-old Hanovarian gelding, Magic Man. Posting four faults and a time of 41.50, he was no doubt able to plan for his second ride on Lolita at the end of the order. Both California’s Molly Talla on Camaron Hills Shanroe and Alberta’s Lisa Carlsen, with the stunning Cuba Libra, posted four faults, leaving the door open for Brian Morton on Spitfire. Morton posted the first double clear at 42.24 and became the rider to

beat, which Cara Anthony and Woodpecker de Villars weren’t able to do. She had a quick time at 41.16, but groans from the crowd marked a late rail that would drop her to fourth in the end. Aboard the hot-blooded Lolita, Asselin had a good rub on the Timberframe fence, but it stayed in the cups. Quick turns and some great lines delivered a fault-free round that was a full second faster than Morton. Originally ridden by his father, two-time Olympian Jonathan Asselin, Lolita has become a perfect partner for Ben.

It’s the king of sunny-weather sports: beach volleyball. And this weekend, participating in this much-loved summer activity will be a way to help children and youth in Kenya. Students at R.E. Mountain Secondary School organized their second annual Ken-Ya Play beach volleyball tournament to help raise money for students at their sister school in Kenya, through a foundation called Project Kenya. “All money raised goes… to support students in Kenya with money for uniforms, school supplies and bursaries,” said R.E. Mountain teacher Monica Spreitzer. “We’re hoping this will be a successful event as it was last year, involving the community and students while helping a good cause,” said R.E. Mountain Grade 11 student Gurleen Dhaliwal via email. “We encourage the whole family to come out and enjoy.” The volleyball tournament is Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Langley Events Centre beach volleyball courts. In addition to volleyball, there will be face-painting, henna tattoos, balloon animals, a concession and other fun activities to entertain people of all ages. Dhaliwal said students at R.E. Mountain hold fundraisers throughout the year to benefit Project Kenya, a Christian non-profit organization aiding citizens of the African nation. To register a team of between two and six players for the beach volleyball tournament, phone R.E. Mountain at 604-888-3033.

T

he growth surge that hits gardens in June is doubly welcome after so many months of grey skies and cold wet days. Suddenly warmer temperatures are tempting us outside to catch up on everything the spring monsoons have prevented us from doing. Because later plantings tend to catch up to earlier ones, there’s still time to plant seeds of peas, green onions, carrots, lettuce, chard and parsnips. Though it’s still slightly colder than in past years, the first week of June is also good timing for planting seeds of beets, beans, squash, cucumbers, and pumpkins. It’s also time to prepare for winter eating by planting seeds of Brussel sprouts, kale, and broccoli. Tomato, cucumber, and pepper transplants should be fine now in an unheated greenhouse – or in a sheltered spot against a sunny wall. They need rich nourishment, lots of water and removal of all but two or three side-shoots. Usually the first few side-shoots can produce fruit, but subsequent ones are too late and are best removed. The bud-like scapes of garlic should also be taken out. When young, they’re great in stir-fries. Broad beans need to be checked for black aphids. When aphids (and the ants that farm them) appear, the tender bean tops need to be pinched out. Potatoes should have earth hilled up around them as they grow because their shallow roots produce tubers just

under or actually on the surface of the soil. If potato tubers are allowed to bask in sunlight the skins green up and develop toxins. Lawn clippings are a great help if they’re used as a mulch in the vegetable garden. A mulched garden needs water less often, weeds don’t get started, and the clippings add nitrogen. In rural areas the clippings attract birds that scratch them up seeking the earthworms that congregate underneath. But attracting birds is so good for the garden – the more birds the fewer insect pests. Lawn clippings also help activate compost heaps when added in layers just a few inches deep. Deep piles of grass clippings don’t help as much because they tend to block moisture.

Dead-heading is one of the most leisurely June activities. This prevents a lot of weeding later because many lovely flowers volunteer just as enthusiastically as weeds. Rampant self-sowers include oriental poppies, hellebores, Shasta daisies, ladies mantle, lupins, and bronze leaf fennel. Hellebores, oriental poppies and bronze leaf fennel seedlings should be removed young because they have tenacious taproots. Any annuals that weren’t planted earlier should be planted now. Seeds for biennials such as Sweet Williams, foxgloves, double daisies, and lunaria can be sown and planted out in early fall. As summer continues, roses need a lot of watering, but it should all be directed to the roots. Moisture on the leaves encourages black spot and other fungal diseases. The only exception is when green aphids infest the new shoots – a blast of water knocks them onto the ground where they stay. After shrubs flower, they can be pruned. Some, like mock orange, have no problem having up to one-third of their branches removed. Gardeners who want to produce young plants for gifts or next year’s plant sales can layer shrubs such as forsythia, viburnum, and hydrangeas at this time.

Cancer June 21-July 22: You’re in a quiet, lowenergy month, but your hopes remain high, and friends still call – those hopes and friends are going to swell over the 12 months ahead, until your popularity reaches a 13-year peak, and your hopes burst into dreams fulfilled! But for now, accept a few weeks of quietude and recuperation. Meditate, contemplate and plan. Be charitable, spiritual, fulfill your obligations and deal with government agencies. Chase money Sunday/Monday. (Buy technology Sunday.) Paperwork, travel and messaging arise Tuesday to Thursday. Home, garden, kids Thursday onward. Leo July 23-Aug. 22: Wishes come true this week and next.You’re still dealing with pressures on career, status and ambition fronts. Here, favour towards you continues until Thursday, but impatience and a critical attitude continue until June 20. Be diplomatic and eager to please, because the 12 months ahead can boost your career and status in the world in a lucky way – you could rise to a peak you’ve never achieved before! This influence can also expand problems – so don’t create any with impatience, illwill or (especially) unethical or illegal speech/action now to June 20. All’s good! Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22: The accent lies on career, ambitions, prestige relationships and your status in the community, world. Generally all is well here, and productive, especially Tuesday and Friday (work or schmooze late!) and June 16/17. But your mind continues to contemplate bigger horizons, religious ones, or foreign climes, or intellectual or love matters. These have turned lucky, and will expand luckily over the twelve months ahead. But short-term (until June 20) continue to avoid legal hassles, especially over sexual situations, debt and investments. You succeed midweek! Chase money Friday.

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Libra Sept. 23-Oct. 22: The emphasis lies on legalities, religion, far travel, culture (rituals) higher education, broadmindedness, compassion and love. Lingering “threads” (vines) of recent research, sexual (perhaps verboten) attractions, investments, finances and debt, deep health concerns, and lifestyle changes still creep around you. Neither cut these off nor deeply commit to them yet. There is a “partner” in there: but perhaps an illicit one. This whole zone has very recently turned lucky, and will expand or present you with providential opportunities over the twelve months ahead. Stay honest! Scorpio Oct. 23-Nov. 21: The accent lies on depths, mysteries, research, sexual desires, subconscious urges, health diagnosis, dream analysis and occultism, large finances and lifestyle changes. It’s an “all or nothing” time – you either commit, or break off. If hesitating about commitment to someone who’s been around awhile, remember that your true love decade has just begun. A bird in the hand might not be worth two in the bush. Partnerships of all kinds, business and love, meet huge luck in the 12 months ahead – that luck just began last Saturday. Study your future Tuesday p.m. to Thursday a.m. Sagittarius Nov. 22-Dec. 21: The emphasis lies on relationships, opportunities and opposition, love and war. Everything’s above board – friends and enemies are open, honest. Relocation might occupy your thoughts – the best, most fortunate time in a quarter-century for this will occur from June 2012 to July 2013 – why rush it? Some “trailing tasks” are a hold-over from May: just complete them. Realize your work and duties will expand greatly over the 12 months ahead – with commensurate rewards. Sunday/Monday are sweet, gentle. Be ambitious midweek. Your hopes, popularity rise Thursday p.m. onward!

Tim Stephens' Astral Reflections Aries March 21 - April 19: These weeks are easy but busy, filled with messages, paperwork, details and trips. Romance, pleasure, beauty and a winning streak visit Sunday to Tuesday morning – but don’t gamble with your income or possessions Monday p.m. Work and health concerns call Tuesday noon to early Thursday – plunge in early; your steady approach could trigger a lucky “wind at your back” influence, a bit of cosmic aid. Relationships start sweetly Thursday p.m., but they turn to confusion or misunderstanding this night, then right themselves (perhaps turning to love!) by Friday p.m. Plan accordingly. Taurus April 20-May 20: The emphasis lies on earnings, possessions, rote learning and sensuality. Your energy and charisma levels are good, your effectiveness high. And a cheerfulness about your monetary position in the world is stealing over you. In the 12 months ahead, you can make some excellent investment or financial decisions,can achieve physical gratification, and a partner’s income could improve, perhaps immensely! Your only “scourge” will be the tendency to put on weight (or to be arrogant due to your success). Be restful Sunday/Monday. Romance, pleasure arrive Tuesday p.m. to Thursday. Gemini May 21-June 20: Your energy, charisma and effectiveness are tops! Someone who is not free to dally might “befriend” you (quite recently, now or soon) – this could turn into a year-long affair, making you desire marriage. But it’s doomed to disappoint, so remain honest, reject triangles. You will also be befriended by someone “unromantically” – or by an agency. You will be welcomed and aided by governments this year ahead. Start important projects this week. Sunday/Monday bring travel, messaging. Land, home succeed Tuesday/Wednesday. Romance “up and down” Thursday-Saturday – chase it Friday p.m.

June 5 - 11, 2011 Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19: This week and next pile work on your shoulders – and health, diet concerns. That’s OK, nothing you can’t handle; all will flow fairly smoothly. (Take care in both areas Monday and Thursday nights.) Your luck is starting to grow in romantic, creative, pleasurable, speculative and child-oriented zones – it will last until summer 2012. You might neither see nor sense this for a long while, then suddenly, an event occurs. Be open, ready – and innocent enough to believe! Sunday/Monday bring secrets and money decisions. Midweek’s gentle, wise. Be ambitious Thursday night onward! Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 18: The focus lies on romance, creative ventures, art, beauty, pleasure, vacation, risk and speculation, and child-oriented projects. But these are nothing compared to the huge year-long streak of the same that will arrive by mid-2012 – one that will fulfill a major life-wish! Prepare for that time by building a secure platform psychologically, emotionally and in concrete terms (e.g., buy a house).Your luck in real estate, domesticity, with children, security, retirement, gardening, Mother Nature – will reach a decade high from June 22, 2011 to mid-June , 2012. Don’t start early! Pisces Feb. 19-March 20: The emphasis lies on your home, security, children, nourishment, on Mother Nature, retirement, endings and beginnings. A minor new phase or project might begin in these areas midweek. Usually this phase (late May to late June) creates a restful, sluggish mood designed to give you a mid-year rejuvenation. But this time a lot of errands, trips, visits, calls and paperwork keep you busy. June 4 starts a year in which your career will involve a lot of running around and communicating. Romance disappoints Friday, flows smoothly Saturday. One met before Friday isn’t compatible. timstephens@shaw.ca • Reading: 416-686-5014
