Newly elected Langley Township Mayor Jack Froese celebrated his victory with supporters at the Fort Langley Golf Course. While voter turnout hovered around a quarter of eligible voters on Saturday, it was significantly higher than it had been in recent Township elections.


Langley elections

Three in four didn’t vote

Both the number of voters and the percentage voting increased in the Township this election. by Matthew Claxton

Voter turnout was up in 2011 in Langley Township, but not to the highs of above 40 per cent it saw a decade ago. There are 72,559 registered voters in the Township, of whom 18,864 cast ballots, for a turnout of more than 25.99 per cent, barely better than one out of four. That’s an increase from the 2008 election, which saw 21.1 per cent of the registered voters cast a ballot. There are also roughly 6,000 more registered voters in the Township in 2011 compared to three years earlier. In 2008, there were 66,606 voters, and another few hundred registered on the day of the election. Just 14,625 people cast votes. Voter turnout in the Township has hovered at or around the 20 per cent mark for the past several elections.

In 2005, then-mayor Kurt Alberts was challenged at the last minute by former fire chief Tom Ouellette, and voter turnout was below 20 per cent. The last big spike in voter turnout was for the 1999 election, when four mayoral candidates faced off, and two major slates ran candidates after three highly combative years. Turnout topped 40 per cent that year, as voters threw out the incumbent mayor and denied either slate a majority on council. Slates played no major role in Township politics for the next decade.

Langley City

Langley City has 17,419 eligible voters: 17,419. Of that number, 3,558 actually voted, putting voter turnout at only 20.4 per cent – the same percentage turnout as City voters managed in 2008. That is far below the 30.6 to 44.4 per cent turnouts at the polls from 1988 to 1996, a period during which City council was led by controversial Mayor Joe Lopushinksy, and was ousted by Mayor Marlene Grinnell. By 2005, voter turnouts during City elections had plummeted to 19.7 per cent.

Honouring James Douglas



Dressed in red serge, RCMP Staff Sgt. Bob Ginn and Const. Saudagar Teja flanked Rick Herfst, in green, who portrayed a Hudson’s Bay Company employee. The three men stood in front of the Fort Langley Community Hall, waiting to take part in a procession that travelled from the hall to the Fort Langley National Historic Site for Douglas Day on Saturday, Nov. 19. The procession was led by the White Spot Pipe Band, which hosted a fundraising craft fair at the hall that day. On Nov. 19, 1858, governor James Douglas read the proclamation that created B.C. as a crown colony. This year’s Douglas Day celebrated governor Douglas’s Guyanese heritage.

Winning weekend for TWU women

The Trinity Western women’s volleyball team earned it second win over Regina in as many nights, sweeping the visiting Cougars Saturday at the Langley Events Centre. Scores in TWU’s three-set victory were 25-23, 25-23, and 25-22. Trinity Western was led by Amy Leschied, who had 11 kills and eight digs, Kelci French, who had five kills, 16 digs, and four blocks, and Royal Richardson, who had eight kills and six digs. “I like coming away with a sweep. It’s tough to do in Canada West so no question I’m happy about that,” said Spartans coach Ryan Hofer. “I think we played with some decent composure. The games were a little tighter tonight and in the end I think we just made some plays and forced Regina to make some mistakes.” • More online

Pioneers break bread with ‘Queen’ Douglas Day 2011 honoured Langley’s British heritage.

The pioneer celebration this year featured a person portraying Queen Victoria (left). Members of the Douglas Day Committee, flanked by Royal B.C.

They’ve lived in Langley for at least 60 years and on Sunday, they dined with royalty. Douglas Day 2011 honoured the community’s British heritage and featured a person portraying Queen Victoria. Approximately 190 local residents considered pioneers were honoured at the annual Douglas Day banquet. To be a pioneer, people must be at least 70 years of age and have lived here at least six decades. Langley Township and City collaborate in the annual celebration to honour them and their contributions to the community. This year’s event was held Nov. 20 because of the Nov. 19 election. There are about 260 people who qualify as Langley pioneers. Politicians from various levels of government attended to honour them. Langley MPL Mary Polak said the pioneers contributions should serve as a call to all residents. “Each and every day, we can look to the exmplae we have in this room to remind us we have something to build,” Polak said. The event is held to commemorate the founding of the Crown Colony of British Columbia in Fort Langley on Nov. 19, 1858, and recognize the appointment of Sir James Douglas as the first governor of B.C. Douglas Day has been recognized in the Township since the 1920s and the banquet has been annual for more than 60 years. In 1946, the celebration of Douglas Day

was established by bylaw. While many Lower Mainland communities celebrated Douglas Day in the past, Langley is one of the few to continue the tradition. Helping Sunday were members of the Township Youth Advisory Committee, young people with the Royal B.C. Engineeers, and volunteers from the Fort Langley National Historic Site.

The Langley School Board remains mostly incumbents with only two new trustees. They come into office as the district grapples with its $13.5 million deficit. The cuts to spending to deal with the financial problems started this year and run for the next three years. Five of the seven board seats go to Township candidates. Those winners were: Wendy Johnson (8,525), Alison McVeigh (7,346), Cecelia Reekie (7,096), Rod Ross (6,587), and Megan Dykeman (6,264). “I’m very surprised that Stacey Cody wasn’t able to remain on school board,” said Township trustee Rod Ross. He said he was disappointed with her leaving. Candidate Kari Medos said it looked like endorsements from unions made the difference for the candidates, when it came to winning. She missed getting a seat during her second run at a Township school board election. Results for the rest of the candidates and their vote tallies were John McKendry: 6,160; Medos: 4,733; Kirsten Schaffer-Charlesworth: 4,479; Brian Leonard: 3,399; Pamala Combs: 2,941; and Douglas Smuland: 2,319. Medos, Schaffer-Charlesworth, and Leonard had run in the past. The others running for their first time. Two of the seven school board seats go to incumbent Robert McFarlane, with 2,233 votes and newcomer Candy Ashdown, running for the first time. She received 1,845 votes. (The

$ 25 gets you 5! Driver hits group yours to spend... yours to give. Winter driving


A foggy windshield meant a Langley woman couldn’t see the three people she ran over.

With the purchase of a $25 abc Gift Card, there’s a $5 bonus for you to use as you wish!

Three people were hurt, and two hospitalized, after they were hit while walking through the parking lot of a Langley restaurant Friday night. Just before midnight, a women left the Boston Pizza parking lot near the Colossus Theatre in Walnut Grove, without defrosting or scraping the ice from her windshield, said Cpl. Holly Marks of the Langley RCMP. The driver then hit a 35-year-old Surrey woman, then a 31-year-old, also from Surrey, who was pushed several feet, and finally a 32-year-old Langley woman who was dragged a short distance. The first woman was not seriously injured, but the other two were taken to hospital by ambulance. The third woman was the most seriously hurt, Marks said. The driver, a 42-year-old from Langley, has been given a ticket for driving without due care and attention. Drivers who start driving without clearing their windshields can face a $109 ticket, and penalties can be steeper if they hit someone or another car. “With the onset of winter weather, it is the responsibility of the driver to ensure their windows are clear prior to proceeding,” Marks said. Pedestrians also have to obey traffic laws, and should exercise good sense wherever they could come into contact with traffic.

Vodka products recalled by Matthew Claxton

Only winners congratulated This is the time and place at which editorial writers are naturally wont to wax congratulatory towards winners and losers together. An election has been held, and a great many people in the community have expended a great deal of effort towards the furtherance of local democracy. That’s a good thing, by any measure. Within our greater community, there’s a mayor returning for another term, and another who is stepping new into the position at the head of the council table. The community has had its say, and with a mix of new faces and old, there are two new councils – and a new school board – to govern local affairs for the next three years. And indeed, we congratulate all of Saturday’s winners… but not the losers. But before you take offence at our apparent omission of grace, consider our definitions of “winners” and “losers.” Those whose election campaigns were successful at placing them around the community’s council and school board tables are surely winners. That one’s easy. There were many others whose campaigns were successful, even if they didn’t win enough votes to succeed to public office this fall. And though it may not be as obvious, their offer of their services to their community makes them winners, too. The offer of choices, and the expression of concern for issues affecting the community both helps to increase the community’s awareness of itself, and builds greater understanding between and among individuals within the community, and that makes us all winners… Well, not “all”. There are losers. The people who didn’t care enough to take part in the exercise lost. Those who didn’t vote because they couldn’t be bothered to understand the choices before them, and wouldn’t make the effort to make intelligent choices are losers. Congratulations to everyone else! Democracy is always a job well done. – B.G.

Green on other side of the fence My surprise this time was not born of Green’s loss, but of the nature of his loss. Like many watching the progress of this year’s election campaign, I thought Green’s best chance at re-election lay in the possibility Bob Groeneveld of a vote-split between his opposing forces. The following sentiment expressed by a friend on Sunday sums up a lot of the feeling My favourite election night observation came I encountered in the community over the past from Rick Green after the ballots were counted few weeks: “I think Jack Froese will evolve into a very good mayor. I like him as first and it was obvious that he had lost his maymayor choice, but the fear of Green coming or’s chair: he opined to our reporter that some up the middle swayed me and others to Mel of the local newspaper headlines of the past [Kositsky], which would have been just fine as year didn’t help him. a good caretaker mayor.” That Green is a clever boy, for sure.

Langley choices appreciated

Dear Editor, We would like, first of all, to congratulate mayorelect Jack Froese, all the incumbent councillors, and the two new members of council on their election victories. It is wonderful to see democracy in action. Nine years ago, we moved

to Langley after having lived in four provinces, plus overseas, and fell in love with the area, the people, and the spirit of volunteerism that we found here. We also got to know many of the hard-working elected officials, and were struck by the harmony on


Guidance invaluable

Dear Editor, Congratulations, Township! As a long-time resident of the Township of Langley and an active participant in numerous community committees, I am both delighted and saddened by Saturday’s election. First, congratulations to all who ran a good race, and to our new mayor-elect Jack Froese. Mr. Froese is a fine man, and I have no doubt that he will take on his new position with calm dedication and integrity. However, I feel it is imperative to point out that Mel Kositsky has served this community for as long as I can remember, and his wisdom and knowledge will be sorely missed. I have served with Mel on one committee for the past four years, and his advice and guidance have been invaluable. It is my sincere hope that Mr. Kositsky will continue to bring his knowledge to various volunteer committees, and remain an ongoing source of community support. Pam Erikson, Langley

both the City and Township councils. Three years ago, the essence and spirit of this wonderful community changed with the election of Rick Green as mayor. For three years, we have been subjected to the arrogance, the deceit, the divisiveness, the bullying, and lack of leadership of this individual, while his “gang of supporters” wrote endless letters to the editor blaming everyone else for his mistakes and missteps and totally chastising anyone who would dare think to challenge him. In the end, the silent majority has spoken, and it is heart-warming to know that this majority has chosen someone with dignity and sincerity to lead, not to clash, with the remainder of council. Now they can all get down to doing the work we elected them to do. It is a happy day, not a sad day, for the Township of Langley! Shirley & Guy Tousignant, Langley


Signs necessary evil for candidates

Dear Editor, As a candidate with modest means, running a campaign for a seat on Township council was a challenge. A large part of campaigns are run on the Three Ms: money, manpower, and marketing. Signage in a campaign encompasses all three of these aspects: money to buy them, manpower to put them up, and

marketing to get our names out there. Many of the candidates were doing these Three Ms on their own. Like many residents, I was overwhelmed by the number of signs in our beautiful town. As a resident and a candidate, it is a conflicting feeling. I needed them up so you would know my name, but man, it was ugly out there.


Time to forget one promise

Dear Editor, First of all, I’d like to congratulate all the councillors and the new mayor of Langley Township. Well done, and I look forward to common sense being returned to the chambers! Now, regarding the one question I noticed all unanimously “promised” during their election campaigns: traffic calming in school zones. Can I ask them to please reconsider, and exercise their first dose of common sense on what was obviously a populist “mommy” promise? First of all, do some math. Schools are in session a maximum of 10 months. Deduct professional days, vacations, and statutory holidays, and you have about 200 days when school is in session. Each school zone limited to 30 km/h is in effect nine hours a day, so approximately 1,800 hours. The real world is in session 12 months of the year, 24 hours a day. That’s 8,760 hours. Therefore, for the sake of 1,800 hours out of 8,760 hours (that’s just over 20 per cent of the time), roads around schools would be completely unnecessarily hindered with “speed bumps” for the remaining 80 per cent of the time, when no children are present, and current traffic laws already more than adequately address the “problem” during school session. So please, forget this “promise.” It was populist and illadvised, and makes absolutely no common sense whatsoever. John Dueckman, Langley

TODAY’S FLYERS... in the Call 604-534-8641 for delivery info.

Part of the democratic process of voting is allowing candidates to campaign. And although annoying and ugly, it is a necessary process that needs to be exercised. The signs are only up for 20 days every three years: not a long time, just an intense time. Some of us did not have many signs, in fact, and we go unnoticed in the overkill of others. People chronically complain that they don’t know who to vote for, or what our platforms are. Signs with my name on them alert you to the fact that I exist as a candidate, and that I have a message for you. So when my signs go missing, are knocked down, or are thrown in the street, it is costing me time away from talking to you, money from my own pocket, and a message I am trying to get out. All candidates are experiencing it, but the impact on some candidates is greater, as they have so few signs to begin with. So please, please tolerate this short process and do not remove, throw, or damage signs, or turn a blind eye to those who do. And parents, please talk to your kids.

Township election

Newbies win council spots

David Davis and Michelle Sparrow will join the Township council along with six incumbents. by Matthew Claxton


Two new faces will be joining the ranks of Langley Township council. Michelle Sparrow, a local realtor, and David Davis, a farmer, will fill vacant seats on the eight-member council, along with new mayor Jack Froese. All six sitting incumbent councillors were returned, but Mel Kositsky was running for mayor and Jordan Bateman left council for a job with the Canadian Taxpayers Federation. Sparrow said she was sitting at home and desperately trying to see how Michelle Sparrow the vote was going Councillor-elect Saturday night, but she couldn’t get her computer to load the Township’s election feed. “We ended up finding out by a text message,” she said. She said she was blown away and honoured by her win. “Social media definitely played a role,” she said of her campaign success. Sparrow was one of the more techsavvy candidates this year, and she wants to carry that into her new job. She wants to use technology to enhance the way the Township communicates with its residents. “I think there’s so many tools out there for us to use,” she said.

Talking to younger voters and younger residents is also important to her. Sparrow, a realtor, drew some attention during the federal election campaign when she held some student votes at local schools, to help educate kids about Canada’s government and current affairs. Davis said he was surprised that, out of a field of good candidates, he was one of only two newcomers elected to the Township council. “I was actually humbled,” said the 53year-old farmer from Milner. “I think I represent rural Langley, because of my involvement in farmland,” Davis said. He’s been vocal on a number of issues related to the Agricultural Land Reserve, most notably as part of a group of Milner farmers who opposed the controversial first plan for the Mufford-Glover overpass, which would have taken 29 David Davis acres out of the ALR. Councillor-elect Davis is a fourthgeneration Langley resident, a rarity in a community that has grown by leaps and bounds as a suburb over the past four decades. “I never get tired of supporting farmland,” Davis said. He said that Langley doesn’t have to develop at breakneck speed. “I don’t look at it as something we have to develop,” he said. Transportation will also be a key issue in the future, he believes. “One thing’s for sure, I’m going to do a lot of listening,” he said. There were 27 candidates running for Township council, one of the largest fields in recent years.

Every drop counts by Heather Colpitts

Langley has helped restock supplies for Canada Blood Services after the very successful donor clinic hosted by Langley City firefighters Nov. 17. “Our target for the day was 73 (units),” said firefighter Rob Rabby. By the time the people from Canada Blood Services packed up the mobile clinic in the downtown firehall last Thursday evening, they had 91 units. Rabby said the clinic collected 125 per cent of the target. The event was deeply personal to the people in the firehall. Langley City firefighter Ron Dunkley was critically injured while in Washington State in November 2010 and died after almost two months in hospital. This clinic was in his memory. Not everyone attending knew Dunkley but they knew they wanted to help out. There were strangers who wanted to donate and people who knew members of Dunkley’s family. “Lots from all walks, all areas,” Rabby said about where the donors came from. “A lot of firefighters from around the Lower Mainland. Later in the day many municipal employee had their arms swabbed, the

needles inserted and their contributions collected. In all about 110 people came in to donate but a few were not able to for medical reasons. Each donor undergoes a screening where they are asked about medications they are on, medical procedures they have undergone recently, where they have recent tattoos or piercings, and other health-related questions. Rabby said so many people coming out to make the clinic a success was touching to the people who knew Dunkley. Canada Blood Services allows only a handful of these specialty clinics during the year so the firefighters are lobbying to be made an annual specialty clinic. About 70 per cent of the emergency calls received by Langley City Fire are classed as medical first responder so the fire crews know the value of blood donations. Dunkley needed 90 units of blood in the first two weeks and more after that. It’s common for a person injured in a vehicle crash to need 50 units and a person undergoing cancer treatment may need up to eight units per week for the length of the treatment. Someone with a hip fracture or having hip replacement can require about five units and organ transplant patients can require from 10 to 100 units depending on the organ.

Central Fraser Valley Search and Rescue has come up with a bright idea to raise funds. The group that covers Langley and adjacent communities in times of crisis is doing Christmas light installations and takedown as a fundraiser. The Members In Training “MIT” Recruit Class of 2011 will be trading in their usual SAR gear for elf hats, ladders, and tool belts filled with light clips as they bring Christmas cheer by installing Christmas lights. They will be offering their services on Dec. 4 to install Christmas lights for a minimum donation of $250, which is considered a tax deductible donation. The service includes installing lights

that you supply for covering your roof lines as well as the take down of the lights in January. All funds will be used to purchase essential safety equipment and outdoor clothing that the members in training require. Since 1978 CFVSAR has delivered a professional quality search and rescue service to the residents of this community. The team is made up of volunteers dedicated to this specialized public service. Averaging 43 calls per year, this busy team relies on the generosity from the citizens of the City and Township of Langley, City of Abbotsford, and Sumas Mountain to help cover the cost of maintaining or replacing equipment and continuing to provide members with specialized training in swift water rescue, rope rescue, ground search and rescue, first aid, search management, and other important courses related to saving lives. For more information on this fundraising event, contact Tim Lee, 604-866-0688 or

Steve Ferguson and family thank the residents of Langley for their support.

Rail could be moving ahead for residents South of the Fraser. by Kelly Sinoski Postmedia Network Inc.

The mayors of Langley and Surrey hope to move ahead with plans for light rail in their communities as early as next year after the B.C. government said it’s looking at different options for transit South of the Fraser. Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender said the two mayors received a letter from Transportation Minister Blair Lekstrom that said the province is “examining the use of LRT as well as the potential for bus rapid transit and SkyTrain technology to provide frequent, fast, reliable services to communities south of the Fraser.” Peter Fassbender “We need to focus on LRT options Langley City mayor south of Fraser,” Fassbender said. “What we want to do is look at the needs and what the options are… I’m not sure SkyTrain is the best option.” Fassbender said light rail is a strong option for the two communities because of the geography south of the Fraser and the ability to build more infrastructure at a lower cost than SkyTrain. “It’s a significant win for us,” he said. “We’re prepared to support the Evergreen Line but we need to move ahead with a plan for this part of the region… to recognize the pressure and the growth out here.” Surrey Mayor Dianne Watts said the communities have been pushing for increased provincial spending on transit for some time and the letter from Lekstrom is “both an acknowledgement of our issues and a sign that transportation in Surrey will be improving for the future.” “We have been advocating for light rail transit because it’s an effective and efficient form of transportation,” Watts said in a release. “It will allow us to shape our communities and connect our town centres, while at the same time increasing economic development in our city.” Surrey is exploring light rail transit routes along 104th Avenue between 152nd Street and City Centre; City Centre to Newton, with an extension to South Surrey; and along Fraser Highway, between City Centre and Langley. Fassbender said a transportation study is already underway and he expects work on a route could begin as early as next year.

Langley Animal Protection Society

Harlie’s story highlights successes for Aldergrove shelter

An English bulldog is one of about 90 dogs adopted out of Patti Dale Animal Shelter so far this year. by Roxanne Hooper


enise Menzies stumbled across Harlie’s picture on the Langley Animal Protection Society’s website, and had to meet her. One look at Harlie’s cute, wrinkled face, and she was in love. She immediately called her husband Ian, who was in Palm Springs on a business trip, and told him to head straight from the airport to LAPS’ Patti Dale Animal Shelter. No going home, no passing go. It was love at first sight, and in no time at all, Harlie was on her way to a new, permanent home. Harlie arrived at LAPS when tragedy struck. Her owner passed away and his daughter couldn’t keep her. So, at the age of six, Harlie was suddenly homeless. Harlie was surrendered to LAPS on Jan. 29 and adopted just shy of a month later, explained shelter manager Sean Baker. “When she first arrived, Harlie was suffering from a few medical issues, including skin problems, which are common in English bulldogs. The folds of skin around her

CLARA • Domestic Medium Hair Mix.• Small •Adult • Female. Clara has been here at the shelter since early August and is waiting patiently for the right person to come along who will love her and take care of her for the rest of her days. She was abandon with her 3 young kittens in a box infront of a store and ended up here. SInce then she has finished raising her kittens has been spayed, and is now ready to find a home where she will be number one. Spayed/Neutered • Up-to-date with routine shots • House trained • Primary colors: Tabby - Buff, Tan or Fawn, White • Coat length: Medium

Ian and Denise Menzies often throw a string of pearls onto Harlie, so everyone they encounter on their walks knows she’s a girl. eyes and tail were full of dead skin and pus. To clear up the infection, Harlie needed her skin cleaned several times a day with special wipes. She also had a serious bladder infection. She was peeing almost straight blood and needed an immediate trip to the vet for antibiotics,” Baker said.

BELLA • Domestic Short Hair-Black Mix • Large • Adult • Female • Bella is a lovely oneyear-old cat. She loves company and would spend all day with her people if she had her way. She’s very talkative and could easily be trained to speak on cue, just like a dog. This curious young girl enjoys watching the world go by from high up on her perch. She would love a home with a family who will play with her and fuss over her. Bella could go to a home with a dog or another cat. • Spayed/Neutered • Up-to-date with routine shots • House trained • Special Needs • Primary color: Black • Coat length: Short

Once her urgent health problems were under control, LAPS staff went to work on Harlie’s next big issue: her weight. “Harlie was obese, tipping the scales at 62 lbs. Through a combination of diet and exercise, Harlie managed to lose a few pounds,” he said.

CLOVIS • Domestic Short Hair Mix. What can we say about Clovis? She is a special case for sure! We all love her very much, but there is no doubt that Clovis is looking for a home that is definitely a bit harder to find. She is very much her own cat and enjoys attention, but on her terms. She is a little tempermental and is very independent, so not the kind of cat who wants to be constantly snuggled and pampered, but for someone who just likes to have a buddy around to talk to and get the occasional kisses from she is perfect. If you have an extra cushion on your couch, a place to put a litter box and food and water dish and would like a friend to say hi to after a long day at work, Clovis is your gal.

“It wasn’t easy – Harlie likes to do things on her own schedule and when she doesn’t feel like going for a walk, she just digs her heels in and refuses to budge.” It was about that time that the Menzieses discovered Harlie, and put the wheels in motion to make her part of their family.

DARWIN • Pit Bull Terrier Mix. Darwin is approximately 18 months old. He’s sleek and athletic looking. If you like just a little attitude he might be just the dog to keep you smiling. This one talks and really wants someone with time to listen. He is a very affectionate dog looking for someone to love and chat to. To learn more about this dog please call LAPS at the Patti Dale Animal Shelter and ask to speak to his/her trainer. • Spayed/Neutered • Up-to-date with routine shots • House trained • Prefers a home without: young children • Primary colors: Sable, White or Cream • Coat length: Short

They’d lost their red male shiba inu, Tetsu, in the summer of 2009, and then their 14-year-old black and tan female, Kuma, last fall. “They both gave us so much love, taught us patience, and after that we could not imagine life without our canine companions,” Denise told the Langley Advance. “We had lost Kuma a few months before, and our house was very empty and quiet,” she elaborated. “One day when voting, I happened to click on the adoptable dogs button and the first face that came up was Harlie’s. I instantly smiled and thought, ‘What a face! How could you not love her?’ “I instantly knew she was meant to be part of our lives… I couldn’t get Harlie off my mind,” Denise said. The Menzieses say it’s impossible to pick one thing they love best about Harlie. They love her to bits and it seems like Harlie has always been part of the family. When Harlie realized she was the princess in her new home, her funny, quirky character really began to shine. “She is very different from a shiba inu, and it was nice not to go through the puppy stages all over again. She is well behaved, loveable, and loyal. Ian is her number one fan, but I think I run a pretty close second,” Denise said. continued on page A22…

POPCORN BIG GIRL • Poodle Mix. Popcorn is friendly, • Great Dane Mix. Big Girl is looking for someone

special to love her and give her a new name. She is

fun and easy to love. This little guy about 5 or 6 years old and just over 100 lbs but looking has made lots of human, dog and cat to gain a little more. When you first meet her she is friends here at the shelter. Popcorn would like to have someone with lots of time to share with him. To learn more about this dog please call LAPS at the Patti Dale Animal Shelter and ask to speak to his/her trainer. • Spayed/Neutered • Upto-date with routine shots • House trained • Primary color: White or Cream • Coat length: Medium

cautiously shy but when she builds her courage she’ll offer you a sit and shake a paw. Her way of saying “I like you.” This one’s a leaner and when she leans on you, well, you know she thinks you’re special. She’s a fun dog who loves to chase her ball and play with her best friend here at the shelter “Neko”. Big girl travels well and enjoys car rides. She is super clean, completely house trained and does not appear to chew. To learn more about this dog please call LAPS at the Patti Dale Animal Shelter and ask to speak to his/her trainer. • Spayed/Neutered • Up-to-date with routine shots • House trained • Prefers a home without: cats, young children • Primary colors: Black, White or Cream • Coat length: Short

…continued from page A21 These days Harlie races around squeaking her ball, snores up a storm, and chases a laser pointer with her pal Winston – a King Charles cavalier spaniel that belongs to close friends and visits Harlie frequently. Harlie’s a lucky girl, Denise said. She goes to work every day with Ian at OK Tire in Abbotsford, revelling in the attention heaped on her by staff and customers. Harlie has her own special cubbie at OK Tire, complete with her bed and toys where she spends long naps and snores loudly, Denise added: “She has a growing fan club, but she also seems to know exactly when it is time to go home for supper.” On the home front, Harlie’s two passions are soccer and skateboarding. She has a new skateboard and loves to practise, Mom said. Harlie is quite the diva, said Mom. “Whenever we go for walks, we want to make sure everyone knows Harlie is a girl, so she has a strand of pearls… She wears a purple harness and collar, with a pink name tag with rhinestones. She’s a big princess and she likes to show some bling, too,” Denise said. It’s success stories like this, which LAPS call their Furry Tail Endings, that make all the work by shelter staff and volunteers worthwhile, Baker said. Harlie is one of about 700 stray and 40 surrender dogs that came into the shelter this year. Describing it as a slow year for adoptions, Baker said Harlie is one of only about 90

dogs that have been fortunate enough to find a new home this year. For more information about animals that are available for adoption from LAPS, people can visit the shelter, go to the LAPS website, or like it on Facebook. “This is our first adoption from LAPS but won’t be our last,” Denise said. “There are so many amazing animals out there that deserve a second chance, we will definitely adopt again. LAPS is very good at making sure that the animal is the right fit for the family situation, I can’t say enough good things about the folks at LAPS.” Denise first became involved with LAPS as a result of working for at the credit union. Fellow branch manager Bob Eilers introduced her to Baker, and the shelter. “As a devoted animal lover, I was drawn to the wonderful facility. I now volunteer every Friday; I do behind the scenes stuff like lots of laundry, cleaning, and doing lots of dishes,” Denise said. “I leave the dog walking to those that perhaps can’t have a dog of their own, as I am fortunate to be able to walk Harlie everyday,” she added, noting that Ian joins her whenever he can. “LAPS is such a great organization, and I would encourage anyone thinking of getting a pet, to explore the possibility of adopting an animal from LAPS – everyone deserves a second chance at a ‘forever’ home,” Denise said. “Just ask Harlie.” • Stay tuned to the Langley Advance for more Furry Tail Ending stories.

Centrally located land sold A chunk of land in downtown Fort Langley could be sold to a developer. by Matthew Claxton

The sale of a plot of Langley Townshipowned land near the core of Fort Langley has been all but finalized. The 1.85 acre site is to the north-east of the Fort Langley firehall, and is to be sold to Lanstone Homes for $1.8 million. The Township acquired the land when it bought space for the new firehall some years ago. It never had any need of the land, however, and has been quietly working to sell it ever since. According to Scott Thompson, manager of the Township’s property services


Caregivers supported by Heather Colpitts

A Saturday support group has started for caregivers. The members will meet at the Langley Seniors Resource Centre Saturdays, 10:15-11:30 a.m. “This is a group for those caring for an adult family member or perhaps a friend who suffers from a chronic disability,” according to nurse Sylvia Cardin. There is also the ongoing Thursday group that meets 1:15-2:30 p.m. Caregivers can choose whichever group is most convenient. The seniors centre is at 20605 51B Ave.

department, the land also abuts some homes on Edal Avenue and a nearby mobile home park. It doesn’t have direct street access right now but is close to the dead end of Mavis Avenue. Thompson said the Township has a “firm agreement” to sell the land to Lanstone. A notice in today’s Langley Advance (Tuesday) is the first official notification that the property is being sold. According to planner Ramin Seifi, the land is designated for multi-family development in the Fort’s community plan, but it’s currently zoned for larger lots. Lanson Foster of Lanstone Homes said his company has also bought an adjacent camping area, bringing the total amount of land to 4.5 acres. It plans multi-family housing for the area, although he said it will be relatively low-density, with townhomes and not condos contemplated. In the new year, Lanstone will start a community consultation process over the form of the development. The land is not part of the Fort’s heritage conservation area. It has no buildings at present, and is largely covered with trees. The money from the sale of the municipal land will go into the Township’s land reserve account, unless the council decides otherwise, to be used for buying other pieces of property around Langley. The land is one of the last undeveloped pieces of property left near the core of Fort Langley. Lanstone Homes is a Murrayville-based developer that has built custom homes in the Fort, as well as townhouse developments in Walnut Grove.


Thank you for your support!

I look forward to working for the people of Langley. 604-888-1402 •

Last female giraffe dies Just a week after the death of three-year-old Amryn, his mother had been found dead, as well. A mother giraffe at the Greater Vancouver Zoo has died, just days after the demise of her threeyear-old offspring, Amryn. In a press release on the weekend, the zoo said the giraffe, Eleah, was found by staff Saturday morning in a heated barn. Although her health had been good, she was a “senior” at 23 years of age, it stated. Zoo veterinarian Dr. Bruce Burton performed a preliminary post-mortem examination of the animal, but the cause of death is not yet know. A complete necropsy will be conducted by an exoticanimal specialist, and results will be announced as soon as they are available, the release says. Eleah was born in 1988 at the Missouri Zoo and arrived in Vancouver when she was one year old. She is survived by her long-time partner Jafari and her daughter, Bonnie,

who resides at Parc Safari in Quebec. The zoo said Eleah’s death was particularly difficult for staff and volunteers because it closely follows the unexpected death of Amryn, the youngest male Rothschild’s giraffe at the zoo. Amryn was found lying on the ground inside his barn early Tuesday morning and died shortly thereafter. The cause of his death is also under investigation.

Bling was heaped on Langley’s own Chad Brownlee at the B.C. Country Music Awards this weekend. The 27-year-old Willoughby singer and songwriter spent more time on stage than off, between accepting his armfull of awards and performing at the 35th annual awards show in the Red Robinson Show Theatre Sunday. “I’m just embarrassed and humbled to be up here tonight, to accept this award,” he said when accepting the top prize of entertainer of the year. It was the last of five glass sculptures he was given recognizing the relative country music newbie who also scooping up male vocalists of the year, single of MORE the year for Day After PHOTOS You, video of the year ONLINE for Carried Away, and album of the year. “Thank you to the fans. You’re the ones that go in the seats and let us do what we do… We as artists/entertainers would be nothing without the support of our fans,” Brownlee said, tightly gripping the award. “So it means everything to me, and I feel like I’m not just doing this for myself, but for everyone else who stands by us. I don’t ever want to let them down.” Asked Monday if the shock of his landslide victory had sunk in yet, Brownlee said: “It did about an hour ago, when I was listening to one of our new songs that was just sent to me by our engineer Paul Shatto. I realized how lucky I am to be making such great music with these amazing people and to be at the point I am right now in my career.” But that night, he was almost bashful when he was called up yet again to accept award after award. The young man’s shyness, however, disappeared when he took the stage near the end of the show to rock it with Love Me Or Leave Me. Asked what was the best part of the weekend of BCCMA events, Brownlee said the answer was simple: “Getting together with family and friends and celebrating country music.” Joined by his parents, Al and Laura Brownlee, along with his wife Katie, and best friend Lucas Fransen, he repeatedly thanked them, and his music team [Mitch Merrett, Mike Denney, Carmen Choney, and Hayley McLean] for their support in making his successes possible. “This shows there are a lot of people out there who believe in what we (my team) are doing,” he told the Langley Advance. “I’m just doing what I love,” Brownlee added. “The awards are great and it’s nice to

This is only the beginning and I have enjoyed every part of the ride!” This B.C. native, who was a Vancouver Canucks sixth-round draft pick, has long had a dual passion for both music and hockey. A career in music was something he never imagined he could pursue. But after a year of injuries, Brownlee found himself at a career crossroads. Driven to follow his musical ambitions the singer officially gave up his jersey and has never looked back. Stay tuned for more from this local musician, who expects to release his second album on Valentine’s Day and joins country great Dierks Bentley tour the next day starting in Vancouver. In addition to Brownlee’s success on the stage of the BCCMAs, there were a number of other Langleyites in the running for bling. Musician and producer Mitch Merrett, country singer and songwriter Aaron Pritchett, and the 2010 BCCMA entertainer of the year Emily Taylor Adams were shortlisted for this year’s accolades. And celebrating 25 years of operation, Gabby’s Country Cabaret once again earned the title of country club of the year. Also present at BCCMA festivities this weekend were Robyn and Ryleigh Gillespie, a sibling singing and songwriting duo coming up through the ranks. They performed at Saturday’s industry awards show. And 13-year-old singing sensation Cole Armour, who recently appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show, made a special guest appearance at Sunday’s awards night.

Interior opponents felled by Rivermen The Langley Rivermen defended home ice by defeating two struggling teams over the weekend. by Troy Landreville and Brandon Astle

The Langley Rivermen are on a mini roll and playing their best hockey of the season. Home ice wins over the Westside Warriors and Vernon Vipers have improved the Rivermen’s record to 8-13. While they continue to occupy the B.C. Hockey League’s Coastal Conference cellar, the Rivermen are within arm’s reach of the seventh-place Alberni Valley Bulldogs, who are three points clear of Langley’s junior A squad. The Rivermen took advantage

of a pair of struggling teams. Langley handed the Warriors their eighth loss in a row on Friday, while Saturday’s loss to the Rivermen was the defending BCHL champion Vipers’ third consecutive mark in the loss column. “We recognized the teams coming in and what they were facing,” Rivermen head coach Steve O’Rourke said.“Westside was a desperate team, having to travel and having lost seven in a row, and we played very solid against them.” The Vipers were playing their third road game in three nights, after losing one-goal games to

The Rivermen saved their best period for last as they exploded for three goals from Mike Tebbutt, Patrick Martens, and Thomas Nitsche to win in convincing fashion.

The Trinity Western men’s volleyball team stayed unbeaten in Canada West play as they completed a weekend sweep of Regina with a four-set win on Saturday at the Langley Events Centre. Set scores were 25-10, 19-25, 25-16, and 25-15. It was an emotional night. Thirty minutes prior to the game, the Spartans raised their 2011 national championship banner. After a dominating 15-point win by the Spartans in the first set, the Cougars responded by taking the second frame by a tidy six points, before Trinity Western went back to work in the final two sets winning by nine points and 10 points in the third and fourth sets, respectively. The Spartans, who had 11 players with at least one kill, were led by Brad Kufske, who had a career-high 17 kills, including 10 in the fourth set alone, Nick Del Bianco, who had 10 kills, and Lucas Van Berkel, who had eight kills and seven blocks. Regina was led by Andrew Nelson, who had six kills, and Jamie Wilkins, who had five kills and one block. With the win, the Spartans improved to 6-0 on the season while the loss drops Regina to 3-5. “The first set was awesome as our block defence slowed a bunch of balls down and I thought our transition and tempo was really good,” said Spartans coach Ben Josephson. “Lucas [Van Berkel] and Steven [Marshall] did a great job of stabil-

izing.” Josephson added, “In the second set, they got a really good serving run from [Andre Borgeaud]. He was just chewing on the ball and making some tough serves. We made a few more errors and we were a little bit sloppy on some of our high ball execution, which didn’t allow us to get on our runs. Overall I’m pleased with the weekend.” ••• Playing in its first game at the LEC since winning the national championship last March, the Spartans swept Regina in three sets Friday night in their home-opener. Set scores were 25-16, 25-10, and 25-23. TWU proved to be the better side from the opening serve to the final kill, out-hitting the Cougars .345 to .126 with 10 service aces, while Regina had none. Trinity Western, who had eight players with at least three kills, was led by Marc Howatson, who had seven kills and five digs, and Lucas Van Berkel, who had six kills and five blocks. With the win, Trinity Western improves to 5-0 while Regina drops to 3-4. “It was a great crowd tonight and that really fired us up,” Josephson said. “We knew we were going to be really amped to play but I was really pleased that the guys weren’t over activated. They did their jobs and we did the stuff that we worked on this week. Playing in front of a boisterous crowd of 520, Trinity Western had six different players notch kills, led by Howatson, who had three in the set. The Spartans also had five team blocks to Regina’s one. The Spartans are back in action this weekend when they host UBC Okanagan at the LEC.


Rivermen play three times this weekend …continued from page A27 Rivermen 6, Westside Warriors 3 Things could not have gone worse for the Rivermen in the first minute of their game against Westside Friday at the LEC. Just 18 seconds after the opening puck drop, Rivermen netminder James Barr went to play the puck at the side of his goal, caught an edge, and went crashing to the ice, allowing Warriors’ forward Travis Blaniel to put the puck in the empty net for the first goal of the game. Twenty-eight seconds later, Westside’s Alex Krause scored a goal off the rush on a nice passing play to make it 2-0, as the

Rivermen found themselves in a deep hole just 46 seconds into the first period. Just when you thought it was going to be a long game for the Rivermen, the home side responded with back-to-back goals from Tebbutt and Chris Tracy to tie the game at 2-2. The start of the second period was a much different one for the Rivermen as Tebbutt and Tracy struck again, scoring a minute apart to put the home team ahead 4-2. Mario Puskarich gave the Rivermen a three-goal cushion with his team’s leading 12th of the season, when he scored at the four minute mark on a rebound from a Dyck shot.

Izaak Berglund of the Warriors scored later on in the second frame to cut the Rivermen’s lead to two goals, but that was as close as the visitors from the Kelowna area would come. In the third period, Derek Sutliffe iced the game to seal a 6-3 victory on home ice, handing the Warriors their eighth straight loss. Tebbutt, Dyck, and Tracy picked up three points apiece for the Rivermen while Barr recorded his third win of the season.

USHLer joins ’Men The Langley Rivermen

recently added 20-year-old defensemen Richard Coyne to their roster. Coyne comes from the Lincoln Stars of the United States Hockey League. In 2009/10 he split time with the Sioux Falls Stampede and Chicago Steel, playing 43 games between those them. The 6’2” 190 pound blueliner is expected to add depth to the Rivermen’s defence, according to the team’s defensive coach Bobby Henderson. “He is a big, steady defensemen that can skate very well,” Henderson said.


With Lincoln last season, Richard put up two goals and three assists and had 64 penalty minutes with a plus-nine rating. “Richard’s leadership is a big asset to our club and will be relied upon to shut down the oppositions best players on any given night,” Henderson added. ••• Dyck and Tebbutt were the story of the last two games as they combined for 12 points in the two wins over Westside and Vernon. Langley’s powerplay is starting to find its groove, as well. Overall, the

Sockeyes feast on Kodiaks

The showdown between two of the elite teams in the Pacific International Junior Hockey League didn’t live up to expectations. The Richmond Sockeyes trounced the visiting Aldergrove Kodiaks 6-1 Thursday at Richmond Arena. The game was a clash of the two PIJHL conference leaders. The Kodiaks, who were looking to extend their unbeaten streak to 10

games, fell behind 3-0 in the first period, and were out-scored 3-1 in the third frame. The local junior Bs will try to get back onto the winning track on Wednesday, when they host the Abbotsford Pilots at Aldergrove Arena. Opening faceoff is 7:15 p.m. At 12-5-0-1, the Kodiaks are a point up on the 12-6 Pilots in the race for first place in the PIJHL’s Harold Brittain Conference.

Thank you!

Desjarlais joins Lindsey Romkes as the two Spartans who have qualified for nationals, after Romkes posted a time of 2.21.31 in the 200m butterfly at the SFU Clan Cup International that ran Nov. 5-6. “Our athletes swam in lots of events and swam well with great passion, enthusiasm and tough racing,” said Spartans coach Brian Metcalfe. “Trinity Western swimmers are being noticed in the swimming community.” Along with his qualifying time in the 400m freestyle, Desjarlais also had a number of first place finishes as he had top times in the 100m freestyle in 53.69 seconds, 200m freestyle in 1:55.35 and 400m individual medley in 4:43.09.

Here's How It Works: Sudoku puzzles are formatted as a 9x9 grid, broken into nine 3x3 boxes. To solve a Sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box. You can figure out the order in which the numbers will appear by using the numeric clues already provided in the boxes. The more numbers you name, the easier it gets to solve the puzzle!
