Surgery saves young woman’s future

A Langley Memorial Hospital surgeon saved a woman’s colon using a technique just applied to C. difficile victims. by Pamela Fayerman Special to the Langley Advance

Corinna Smith is certain she owes her life – and an important body part – to a quickthinking surgeon who used a new technique he’d just learned about at a conference to save her colon. Smith, whose bowels were being ravaged by toxins as a result of a Clostridium difficile colitis infection, is believed to be the first B.C. patient to undergo the still-experimental procedure. It involves diverting a loop of the colon, flushing the poisonous germs out of it, then injecting antibiotics directly into the diseased area. Months later, after rest and healing, the colon is reattached. The conventional procedure in severe cases like hers would have been removal of most of

Save time When the new 10-lane bridge is complete, it will be twice the size of the old one, which will reduce congestion and save you time – you could cut your drive in half. Less idling also means less money spent at the gas pump, with some drivers saving up to a litre in fuel each day. A series of interchanges and overpass improvements provide faster, safer travel to and from the highway. With less congestion and more reliability, you’ll be able to better predict how long your drive will take and make sure you arrive on time.

Industrial lands

Langley City is once again trying to hit the ground running on the issue of development. This time it relates to contaminated industrial lands. The City hired Colliers International to study brownfield lands, sites of current or former industrial activity. The report delves into barriers, such as the cost of remediation, and what the municipality can do to encourage redevelopment of lands, including tax breaks, streamlined rezoning processes, and promoting interim uses. • More online

Grieving moms given cozy comfort

A package out of the blue helped a mother mourning the death of her son. by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Lori Morison never knew pain until her son died. “When I heard, a piece of me died,” the 43-year-old Langley mother said. “My heart literally hurt so bad, I felt I was having a heart attack. I was lost in my grief. I did not want to get out of bed and face another day.” Then a pair of pyjamas arrived in the mail. “Exactly one month to the day of my son’s passing, I received a package in the mail. I thought, ‘Oh, another card or something.’” The pyjamas came along with a book on grief and a heartfelt letter from another mother Heather Colpitts/Langley Advance whose child had died. It was from the Pyjama Project. Lori Morison has found connecting with other mothers whose children have died has helped her with her grief over her late son, “Those pyjamas brought me so Garrett. much comfort.

Reaction to medication sparked a life-threatening illness …continued from page A1

Because of the uniqueness of Smith’s case, Dr. Kevin McDermid, the internist who cared for Smith while she was in an induced coma for 10 days after the operation, wrote a report he’s hoping to have published in a medical journal. “Call me the miracle patient,” Smith said in an interview. “I cannot even begin to describe how grateful I am to my

surgeon, the internist, and everyone else at Langley Hospital,” she said in an interview. Smith’s near-death experience arose after she got a particularly severe C. difficile colitis infection. C. difficile, often transmitted from contaminated hands to the mouth, is one of many types of bacteria found in feces. For those who are infected, antibiotics usually suffice, but in rare cases, it is a worst-

Smith, who is still recovering from the latest operation to reconnect her colon after it was temporarily decommissioned, said she wants to share her experience, not only as an act of gratitude, but also so doctors and other patients know about the new procedure. Other surgeons interviewed about the procedure used in the Smith case were intrigued, but cau-

tious. Dr. Garth Warnock, a Vancouver surgeon and University of B.C. professor, said he heard the Pittsburgh presentation at an American Surgical Association meeting in Florida last year. He said he was impressed, but feels “a higher level of evidence” is still needed to indicate which patients are most suitable for the procedure.

Policing

Emergency responders arrested several armed men From dead chickens to armed men, the ERT had a busy year. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A man armed with a gun faced down an Emergency Response Team in Aldergrove, in one of several alarming incidents that brought out a heavy police presence during the past year. On July 10, at about 6 a.m., armed police confronted a man with a handgun near a home in the 3000 block of 271st Street. Wearing latex gloves, the man reached under his jacket while officers with guns drawn stood 30 feet away. He pulled out a pistol and threw it away, and was arrested without further incident. Two men were arrested. Less than a week later, the ERT was back, this time on an apparently bogus tip about guns in a house near Fraser Highway and 268th Street. Fraser was closed for several hours while the ERT brought in numerous officers, and their armoured vehicle, but no one was arrested and no guns discovered.

In August, there were another resulted in the ERT being called out. Slade Berggren, 20, was charged with unlawfully discharging a firearm and use of a firearm during an offense after neighbours reported that shots were fired Aug. 14 near 269A Street in South Aldergrove. Corey Spitters and his son-in-law run farms on 269A Street in South Aldergrove. In the early morning hours of Aug. 14, Spitters’s son-in-law found that a breaker had been flipped in his barn, shutting off the ventilation system. Two floors of specialty Taiwanese chickens were virtually wiped out, with 11,000 to 12,000 birds per floor. Spitters’s son-in-law suspected vandalism, and headed down the street to confront the man he believed was responsible. It was then that Berggren allegedly fired the shots, at least one hitting the farmer’s pickup truck. Aldergrove was not the only community to see visits by the ERT. On March 29, an alleged shoplifting at the Army and Navy in Langley City resulted in a massive police search. After store security saw a man pocket a propane torch, he pulled

what appeared to be a gun, then ran off. Police including Langley RCMP, ERT, and Police Dog Services tracked him down and negotiated until he came out of his apartment and was arrested. The ERT also helped arrest Langley residents in Surrey, including a man accused of driving a stolen vehicle across a school yard, and the man charged with attacking a bus driver and passenger.

An ERT armoured vehicle responded in July to reports of a gun in an Aldergrove home. The call turned up nothing.

Education

Langley begged for more classrooms While the school board closed some schools in recent years, it must lobby for new construction in fast-growing neighbourhoods. by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Most school districts are experiencing enrolment declines but Langley is begging for new school spaces as one of the districts with fast growing student numbers in one neighbourhood. The rising student numbers in the Willoughby area continued to present a challenge to the Langley School District this year, despite a new elementary school opening this school year (Lynn Fripps Elementary), and another elementary under construction. In December of this year the

school board announced that the new school would be named after popular former superintendent Richard Bulpitt. The new kindergarten to Grade 5 school for 510 students will be at 20965 77A Ave. and is expected to open for September 2013. A new $22.7 million middle school for Grades 6-8 has been approved by the provincial government and will open September 2014. But that’s still not enough to meet the needs of the neighbourhood. This year the district took a harder look at all its facilities to do better planning. Willoughby should be entirely built out over the next two decades. Based on projections, the area could need a total of 11 elementary schools, four middle schools and two secondary schools, the school

district facilities plan noted. And this year the school district and Langley City and Township created committees to work closer together. The school district has felt left out of planning decisions which meant student spaces were properly forecast. The next big area for development is expected to be Brookswood/Fernridge. In most of the district, schools are experiencing drops in student numbers and the board is having to look at what to do about those schools. Some schools were closed in recent years and the district must decide what to do with the buildings and lands (such as Murrayville, Bradshaw and County Line Elementaries, as well as the Route 32 site on 32nd Avenue in Brookswood).

Resolve to live How’s this for a New Year’s Resolution: try to stay alive for the entire year? It may not be entirely within your power to keep this resolution. Cancer and other diseases will take thousands of lives away from us in 2013. So will automobile crashes, workplace accidents, and a raft of other unfortunate mishaps… but there’s a difference. While we may be able to reduce our chances of contracting some fatal diseases – for instance, quitting smoking to avoid lung cancer, changing our eating habits to reduce the likelihood of heart disease, etc. – accidental death is nearly always avoidable. Driving offers a wellspring of opportunities to keep the New Year happy. Simply exercising more care while driving would cut the death rate across Canada significantly. Realizing that there is more time available if you stay alive all the way to your destination might be a good incentive to reduce your speed. Understanding the odds of killing yourself or someone else while driving under the influence of alcohol or other drugs could help you in your resolve to make it all the way to the end of the year. And knowing that your odds of being involved in a fatal car crash while driving with a cellphone hanging from your ear are almost exactly the same as while driving drunk might make you think twice about taking that call without pulling over first. And once you get to work, try to keep your workplace safe. Think about what you’re doing, especially if you have one of those many jobs – working with machinery or vehicles or potentially deadly chemicals – that are inherently dangerous. Now you’re done your day and want to seek some relaxation? Maybe you’d like to go skiing? Stay in bounds! So no one else has to risk his or her life to recover your body after it has lost its resolve! Indeed, staying in bounds – in whatever activities you undertake – really is the key to achieving your New Year’s Resolution to stay alive through 2013. – B.G.

New year’s happiness confused It’s amazing how many people I’ve run into who – because of the way the line breaks in the song – never realized it’s not about three people (virgin, mother, and child) but just two (a mother who is a virgin, and her baby), as Bob Groeneveld basic as that is to the religious concept. editor@langleyadvance.com If we can’t get a simple Christmas song right, how can we expect to understand the complexity of the economic theory that guides What can I say that John Lennon didn’t our pay cheques? already say in So this is Christmas?

Big House exhibits leave out significant historical players

B.C. politics

Changes needed

Dear Editor, The reputation of B.C. politics is getting worse. The weekly political scandals and incompetent screw-ups have been so numerous they don’t hold traction long enough before we are on to the next one. The media can hardly keep up, and the public is tuning out with Fatigue-ApathyCorruption-Syndrome. (FACS) Example: Basi/Virk/Christy Clark insider information legal mysteries are still unresolved after eight years. Lobbying and insiders breed crony corruption. Big Corporate and Big Union donations invite corruption practices into the process. These type of donors breed lobbyists and insiders seeking advance inside information and/or favours, which puts the entire bureaucracy and politicians in a tight spot. Some politicians enjoy it, as it gives them a sense of importance, until they are suspected, exposed, and step down in disgrace. How can we ever expect to clean up the shady backroom dealings of government, unless we change the system? Is anybody even trying to change it, the Liberals or the NDP? The BC Conservatives, in their policy document, “Article 2. Democratic Reform and Accountable Gov’t, 2.1.12,” propose to limit donations from individuals only, and ban donations from corporations or unions. The federal electoral system enacted this, which appears to be working well, as it certainly hasn’t hampered the NDP’s rise. Roland Seguin, Langley

Natural persons

Facts missed in rant

Dear Editor, I am tired of the misinformation that is getting put out there. Before you let your columnist spout off rants that are not reality, you should make them check their facts – specifically, on where our income tax goes, in Matthew Claxton’s column on natural persons [The cult of the natural person, Nov. 29 Painful Truth, Langley Advance]. Our income tax does nothing for the people of Canada. If you do your research and follow the money, it ends up in the hands of a few wealthy families that have been running the money system for most of the world for close to a century. Just look into the federal reserve in the USA, and you will understand where income tax actually goes. It is the same here with the CRA. I am not sovereign, but I also don’t consider myself a “person,” which is actually defined as a cooperation [sic]. I am just a human being trying to do what is right for humanity, and I know the system we are under has to change or there is no future for humanity. People have got to start thinking of the we and not the me, for the human race to continue on this planet. Dave Tall, Walnut Grove [Note: Find more letters on this topic online at www.mrtimes.com.

stop and ask if any of these updates were actually an improvement. The biggest problem many people have with Fort Langley is the lack of agency on behalf of the Kwantlen people and other aboriginal groups that partook in the fur trade. You see paintings and pictures and artifacts strewn about every corner of every building to emphasize their existence, but none of them communicate the authority and affluent nature represented by the European versions of the same items. One of the largest portraits in the Big House depicts James Douglas and the board of governors signing the proclamation that declared Fort Langley and the surrounding area as a British Colony in 1858. You would think that this would require the permission of the Kwantlen people, who happened to control this land, but in this work of art there is one lonely chief, who has been isolated in the far right corner. Their role in the agreement has been, at worst, entirely erased, which completely ignores the fact that, without the Kwantlen people, Fort Langley would not have been able to survive its first years of trading. While many of the portraits seem to

Parking

Discretion left out

Dear Editor, I was dropping my son off at the BC Biomed Lab office in Langley, and since there were no parking spots available, drove around the lot a few times, hoping an available spot would become available. After repeatedly driving in circles, I thought I would back into one of two open handicapped spots and wait there until a spot became available. I did not leave my vehicle, and never intended to take a handicapped spot, and was ready to exit on a moment’s notice. After a few minutes, a bylaw employee came by and started to take pictures of me through my front windshield. I was a little taken aback and asked her what she was doing, since I wasn’t “parked” but rather waiting for an open parking spot. She did not respond and kept taking my picture. I tried to reason with her, but she barely responded, except to say I was in violation. I was pretty incensed that she used no discretion, didn’t tell me to move before issuing me a violation. I never did receive a ticket, and off she went with little regard to the situation. Of course, I left the area right after, and found an open spot and collected my son some five minutes later. On Nov. 30 I received a Bylaw Violation Warning telling me I had to pay $100, as no notice of dispute had been received. I called the number on the notice and was summarily told it was too late to dispute, and I should have contacted them earlier if I wanted to dispute the violation. As it seemed I had no options left, I suggested I would call the local newspapers, and was immediately told she would definitely do nothing to assist my case if that was my attitude. Is this really how a resident of Langley should be treated? Is it just a cash grab? Is there no discretion and couldn’t she have asked me to move immediately before issuing a violation? It all seems very heavyhanded and unfair. I’m a law abiding citizen and this treatment is unfair. In hindsight, I should have looked around the area for a different parking option, but I was prepared to leave the handicapped spot in a moment’s notice, should a handicapped driver need it. David Hamilton, Langley

Sport Chek * Atmosphere * *in selected areas

unintentionally depict First Nations people as passive observers, it is the scripted walkthrough given by the Fort Langley tour guides that truly drives this image home. When walking through the servant’s quarters, I was constantly told that aboriginal women wanted to move away from their families and traditional settlements so that they could embrace the European culture for all it had to offer. Not only that, but the reason why so few of the Kwantlen elders were involved in the proclamation of 1858 was because they could not understand what they were being asked to sign. They did not speak English, they did not know how the British legal system worked, and they had no idea how to negotiate. That is completely false. Thanks to historical records, we know that the Kwantlen

elders were actually quite adept at trading with the European settlers. They restricted Fort Langley’s ability to trade with other aboriginal groups in British Columbia, they returned goods that were of an inferior quality to the ones they had received previously, and they married their daughters to European men in order to reinforce legal and political bonds with the fur traders. These were not an ignorant and passive people. It is unfortunate that none of these aspects of First Nations culture have been included in the numerous updates Fort Langley has received over the past decade, and I truly hope to see an increase in aboriginal agency represented in our historic landmarks over the next few years.

Foreign trade

Dangerous powers ceded to China Dear Editor, Prime Minister Stephen Harper announced on Dec. 7 that he will allow CNOOC, China’s state-owned oil company, to take over Canadian fossil fuel giant Nexen. CNOOC, a company with one of the lowest transparency rankings in the oil patch, will buy out a Canadian firm. The Harper government has gutted environmental legislation so that Chinese state-owned enterprises and pipeline companies can build without democratic barriers. It has ignored climate change and energy security for Canadians. The government has devoted millions in public funds to bitumen and pipeline lobbying abroad for Big Oil. It has attacked environmental groups and treated First Nations like Tibetans. Any day now, Harper could also decide to pass the Canada-China Foreign Investment

ADVERTISING CONSULTANT – SPECIAL PROJECTS

Dear Editor, On a recent trip to the historic destination of Fort Langley, I could not help but notice that many of the exhibits on display has been revamped. There is new furniture, an entire new display in the second storey of the Big House, and new centennial maps to celebrate the 100th year of British Columbia’s history. However, in the typical fashion undergone by Parks Canada, no one seemed to

Protection Act (FIPA), a major new trade deal with China that would grant unprecedented powers to Chinese corporations that own Canadian natural resources. CNOOC would be able to sue Canadian governments in secret tribunals if our governments do anything to counter its growing interests-including common sense environmental protections and job creation efforts, just like NAFTA (the North American Free Trade Agreement), only more dangerous. Canada has already spent hundreds of millions on penalties from lawsuits launched under NAFTA, and is currently being sued by a U.S. corporation because Quebec placed a temporary moratorium on fracking to study its controversial health and safety impacts. If FIPA passes, the door will be open for CNOOC and other Chinese corporations to do the same, or even worse. Susan Davidson, Aldergrove

Crime

RCMP deal with deaths Three murders hit Langley in 2012, all of people with criminal records. by Matthew Claxton

mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Langley saw three homicides in 2011, all of them shootings. Korey Tyler Kelly became the first murder victim of the year when he was shot and killed, apparently while trying to break into a marijuana grow operation in South Aldergrove on March 9. Kelly, who had a long criminal record, was killed near 16th Avenue and 272nd Street. Police investigators said that Kelly and two other men were involved in the attempted theft, known as a “grow rip.” Kelly was found about a mile away from where the shooting took place, when two men flagged down police officers near 24th Avenue. While the Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) looked into the killing, Langley RCMP seized 600 marijuana plants and arrested a 27year-old from Abbotsford and a 21-yearold Surrey man. Police said they had persons of interest identified in the shooting, but there

had been no charges by the end of the year. In the early summer, a double murder resulted from a melee of some sort in an empty Milner farmhouse. On June 24, two men were shot to death there. Gordon Spencer, 27, died at the scene, and 25year-old Bruce Mayo, died in hospital. The incident was reported to police at 2:30 a.m. as a domestic dispute. The officers who arrived found the two men with gunshot wounds, and four more men and a young woman inside a home thick with bear spray. Both murder victims had criminal records, but police did not say if they thought the crime was linked to gangs or the drug trade. The mystery of the killings deepend in mid-July when the house where the violence had taken place burned in a suspicious fire. Much of the home was destroyed and the roof collapsed. Police said they had finished their investigation of the scene and no evidence was lost, and Langley RCMP opened an investigation into a possible arson.

Health and Wellness ...for life

The Langley School Board kept it in the family, naming acting superintendent Suzanne Hoffman as its new superintendent at the beginning of 2012. Hoffman was appointed acting superintendent in January after the school board fired Cheryle Beaumont. The district announced Beaumont’s departure in January, saying it was a mutual agreement. Beaumont was named a consultant with a position that lasted until the end of January. The board elected in November 2011 was divided, with Trustees Alison McVeigh and Rod Ross critical of how the matter was handled, and voicing support for Beaumont. Trustees had held an incamera meeting in which they voted 5-2 to let her go. McVeigh disclosed what happened at the in-camera meeting, and was censured by the board. “Cheryle Beaumont was terminated by five trustees who are part of a secret slate,” she said back in January, adding that the “slate” was “backed by unions.” McVeigh said she felt

she had to let the public know exactly what happened, because this has resulted in the “firing of one of the best superintendents in the province of B.C., who has an outstanding achievement record.” She added that Beaumont would never walk away from a job but would wrap up duties and help with transitions. Beaumont was the most senior staff member when the district’s financial problems came to light, but during the firing’s aftermath, McVeigh said the independent audit showed that the matter “could not be placed at her feet.” The Langley Teachers’ Association started calling publicly for Beaumont’s resignation in 2009 after the district’s financial problems came to light. McVeigh said in January that she struggled with her decision to speak out about an in camera vote on a personnel matter, but “I believe the public has a right to know the truth.” A Facebook page set up

by supporters back at the time has, as of December 2012, a total of 16 likes and two comments. Despite the controversies of recent years over the district amassing a $13.75 million deficit, infighting, the need to hire the B.C. Auditor General, and other issues, some 15 people expressed interest in filling the job and five applicants were shortlisted. They faced interviews with a panel made up of staff and community stakeholders, followed by interviews with the board. The hiring process was overseen by secretarytreasurer David Green and assistant superintendent Jennifer Canas with the assistance of Make a Future, an educational employment organization that the district hired. In late February came the dollar amount for what Beaumont’s firing cost. The district was paying $440,553 severance for former superindent Cheryle Beaumont and former assistant secretary-treasurer Tally Bains. In addition to the severance, the district spent about $62,000 to find a new superintendent.

December: a month like no other at the LEC

The Langley Events Centre capped 2012 in style.

It was a December to remember at the Langley Events Centre. The Willoughby facility hosted more than 9,000 people (accounting for ticketed events only), welcoming some of the best in professional and amateur sports. The hectic schedule started on the first of the month when the LEC opened its doors for the Holiday Festival on Ice and 2012 Tsumura Basketball Invitational (TBI). The Holiday Festival on Ice featuring Kurt Browning, Elvis Stojko, and Joannie Rochette, to name a few, drew 3,102 people to the LEC arena bowl. Not to be outdone, 1,322 hoops fans watched the Findlay Prep Pilots, the second-ranked team in U.S. high school basketball showcase their athleticism in a 118-55 victory over B.C.’s No. 3-ranked team, the Walnut Grove Gators. Since that game, Findlay has vaulted to the top of the rankings by USA Today. The Findlay and Walnut Grove game was actually the second game of the TBI as Sir Winston Churchill defeated Terry Fox 8855 in the event’s opener. Just as both events were ending, Langley Gymnastics’ annual fundraiser, Operation Red Nose, kicked off in the LEC parking lot. The fun continued Dec. 2 as the Canadian Cancer Society welcomed 312 people to the LEC for its annual Relay for Life Skate with Santa. Guests were treated to a special surprise as they arrived when, in addition to Santa Claus’ presence, Sinead Kerr, John Kerr and Kimmie Meissner (skaters from the Holiday Festival on Ice) were at the LEC practising, enjoying a pancake breakfast, and signing autographs. The TBI continued on Sunday as well, with four of the top ranked girls’ teams in the province squaring off, Findlay playing White Rock Christian Academy and Walnut Grove taking on W.J. Mouat.

Walnut Grove Gator Trevor Seimiatkowski drove to the basket while being shadowed by Findlay Prep Pilots’ forward Brian Angola Dec. 1 at the Langley Events Centre. The Pilots downed the Gators 118-55 in the feature game of the 2012 Tsumura Basketball Invitational high school basketball tournament.

Langley Advance files

The Holiday Festival on Ice drew 3,102 people to the LEC arena bowl. Oak Bay (ranked No. 2) defeated Riverside (ranked No. 6) in a nailbiter by the score of 51-49. In the second girls’ game, local school Brookswood (No. 2ranked) knocked off the top ranked team from South Kamloops by a score of 71-58. In the day’s feature game, Findlay Prep continued its high flying ways and defeated White Rock Christian (ranked No. 4 in B.C.) by a score of 108-40 as the visitors from Las Vegas were too much to handle. The last game of the TBI gave the local Gators a chance to show why they were ranked No. 1 in the province at the time, as they cruised, on the heels of a 44-point performance by Jaden

Cohee, to an 82-58 win over W.J. Mouat. It wasn’t long after the Findlay

Prep Pilots boarded their plane for Las Vegas that National Lacrosse League teams from Calgary and Colorado landed in Vancouver on their way to the LEC to take part in the second annual NLL at the LEC. Professional lacrosse’s second game at the venue was another success, with 4,112 fans showing up to watch the Calgary Roughnecks rough up the Colorado Mammoth by a 20-11 score. In addition to the game, the

weekend once again saw youth camps happening throughout the weekend as players ages six through 16 were able to receive instruction from the professional players and coaches as well as instructors from the BC Lacrosse Association. December also featured a new addition to the LEC event calendar as Wrestling BC’s War on the Floor came to the facility from Dec. 19 to 21. The event featured some of the best in B.C. amateur wrestling.

Construction

LEC expansion allows for more partners The Township is expanding the Langley Events Centre three years after it was built.

by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Like a lot of three-year-olds, the Langley Events Centre grew steadily during 2012. A $7.725 million expansion was announced at the end of the summer. The expansion in the eastern parking lot includes a double gym, an indoor turf/dry floor facility, a new change room, storage and support

space. The entire expansion is expected to be finished by March of 2013. The expansion plan has brought in more partners for the facility. Wrestling BC, the BC Lacrosse Association, Volleyball BC and Volleyball Canada have come on board to secure time at the LEC. That was followed by an announcement that the Township had bought the former Gibbs Nursery site on the corner of 80th Avenue and 200th Street. The Township could allow amenities such as a hotel, theatre, casino, restaurant or housing to be built there over the next several years.

The Trinity Western Spartans battled through 120 minutes of scoreless play and four rounds of penalty shots before lifting the Gladys Bean memorial trophy as the 2012 CIS national women’s soccer champions. The Spartans defeated the twotime defending champions, the Queen’s Gaels, 4-2 in kicks Nov. 11 in Victoria, earning their third title in the past five seasons. “I think our nerves caused us to play a little bit out of how we normally play, but credit to my kids for hanging in there,” said Spartans’ head coach Graham Roxburgh, who made CIS history as the only coach to win four CIS titles in women’s soccer (previously in 2004, ’08 and ’09). Spartans Stephanie Chin, Alessandra Oliverio, Natalie Boyd and Colleen Webber were perfect from the spot to seal the win, while Queen’s shooters Stephanie Chin and Mikyla Kay were the lone goal scorers for the silver medalists.

Langley’s Dorothy Ludwig realized her Olympic dream in 2012. Ludwig competed for Canada in women’s 10-metre air pistol at the London Olympics. At the July Games, Ludwig finished 34th. By making her Olympic debut, Ludwig followed the path of her father, the late Bill Hare, who competed in the 1964, ’68 and ’72 Games. “The opportunity to attend the Olympics was extremely rewarding, and I know I had my family, friends and community behind me,” Ludwig wrote, in an email to the Advance. She earned her Olympic spot after a strong showing in women’s 10-metre air pistol at the Canadian Olympic Trials in Calgary March 18.

International curling event draws scores of local volunteers …continued from page A16

Beginning as a young cowboy wrangling horses on a ranch to his current status as an Equine Canada and FEI steward, judge, and clinician, Esworthy has experienced the sport at all levels over a 50 plus-year career. He served as president of Horse Council BC, Equine Canada, and assisted in the preparations for equestrian events at the 1976 and 1984 Olympic Games. Esworthy served as a director with the Canadian Horse Council from 1972 to ‘77, and took on the role of president of the Canadian Equestrian Federation (now Equine Canada) from 1977 to ’84 before chairing the organization from 1984 to ’91.

Dolfo impresses in London

At 18, Langley’s Braedon Dolfo became the youngest athlete named to Canada’s 2012 Paralympic track and field team. In London, the Langley Secondary grad and soon-to-be Trinity Western University student/athlete was slated to compete in three events: the visually impaired 4 x 100m relay, along with the T13 men’s 100m and 200m sprints. “It’s pretty exhilarating, actually,” Dolfo said, prior to leaving for London. “It’s basically like a dream come true. You think

about it as a kid and now it’s become possible, so I’m pretty excited.” He was coming off a golden performance at the Canadian Olympic and Paralympic Trials at Foothills Athletic Park in Calgary. Dolfo, who has about five per cent vision, won gold in the T13 men’s 100m and 200m dashes. At the Paralympics, Dolfo ran to seventh in the 100m. He crossed the finish line in 11.27 seconds, just off his personal best and Canadian record 11.26, which he ran in heats on Aug. 31.

“To finish seventh in the world is a blessing,” said Dolfo, who was born in St. Vincent and the Grenadines.

Continental competitiveness

In January, a curling competition of global proportions took place at the Langley Events Centre. The World Financial Group Continental Cup ran Jan. 12-15 at the LEC. To accommodate the eighth edition of this unique international curling event, the glass was removed from along the boards inside the LEC’s arena bowl, and the ice surface, normally used for hockey in the fall, winter, and early spring, was

transformed into a giant curling rink with three separate sheets. As well, the LEC triple gymnasium was converted into an entertainment centre. The Continental Cup features six teams from North America versus six teams representing the world in a variety of disciplines – team games, mixed doubles, singles, mixed skins, and skins – during the four days. Roughly half of the Langley Curling Club (LCC) membership group made up the volunteer force. Considering the number of volunteers numbered in the neighbourhood of 275, that was an impressive local group helping out throughout the event. Nigel Easton has managed

As a curling fan, Easton was awed by the level of talent on the ice. “It’s amazing they can make these shots,” he said. “They make it look so easy to make those shots. It’s exciting, it really is.”

Baseball ambassadors

A January journey into Uganda turned out to be an experience of a lifetime for the Canadian Little League champions from Langley. Right To Play joined forces with the Canadian Little League champs, local organizer Ruth Hoffman, the Ugandan Little League team, and film producer Jay Shapiro to make the historic series a reality. Langley’s squad finally got a chance to play Team Uganda, the team it was to meet first at the 2011 Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa. The Ugandan players couldn’t get visas to enter the United States and didn’t make it to the Pennsylvania, despite being the first African team ever accepted to the World Series. The Pearl series will benefit the Ugandan players after the Langley boys returned home. Funds raised will help support the Ugandan players.

BERGER, Jacob

April 16, 1923 - December 20, 2012 Jacob (Dad) passed away peacefully and went on to join his loving wife Hedwig (Mom) in the Father’s house. Born in Alexandrowka in the Ukraine, Jacob, along with his wife Hedwig, immigrated to Canada from Germany in 1950 and settled in Regina Saskatchewan to raise their family. They moved to B.C. in 1970 and started a new chapter where he continued to build and the family continued to grow. Survived by his six children, Bernard, Karl (Denise), Joe (Laura), Alfons (Denise) Ingrid (Gary), Thomas (Anne) and nine grandchildren, Marisa, Paul, Jeffrey, Wesley, Colin, Gregory, Ian, Mary and Brian, Dad (Grandpa) will be dearly missed. Jacob will always be remembered as a master carpenter and builder who devoted his life to his work and his family. He passed his strong work ethic on to his children and grandchildren and will always be known for his unfailing determination and his “it’s not a big problem” attitude when it came to life’s challenges. Jacob departed this world in the comfort and quiet of Zion Park Manor in Cloverdale where the staff lovingly cared for him for the past two years. A funeral mass will be held on January 3rd at 10:30 AM at Precious Blood Parish in Cloverdale followed by a reception at the Parish Center. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in his memory to the Lutheran Senior Citizens’ Housing Society which operates Zion Park Manor.
