Neighbours said it was pure luck that they noticed a fire and warned a friend to wake up in time.

Jesse Eberts looked over the devastation left behind after his neighbour’s trailer burned Thursday morning.

by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

A Fort Langley man made it out of a burning RV with the help of his neighbours and friends early Thursday morning. Annie Prescott, being kept awake by her cat, was the first to notice the fire at the Lombardy RV Park in the 9200 block of McBride Street. She had glanced out her front door about 10 minutes earlier, and nothing was amiss. Then at about 1:30 a.m., she noticed a glow from the RV next to hers. The side of the trailer was in flames, having gone from nothing to a huge fire in just minutes, said Prescott. “I hollered,” she said. She ran outside in bare feet and a T-shirt and started pounding on the side of the trailer with a broom, trying to wake up the man she’s known as a neighbour for almost 10 years. At about the same time, another neighbour, Jesse Eberts, had also awakened. “I just noticed some flickering,” Eberts said. Flames were shooting up 10 to 15 feet on one side of the RV, he said. “I ran out, and I just started yelling to wake people up,” he said. Eberts tried the door and found it locked. He decided to break it down. “I just kept kicking the door, like four or five times,” he said. The hinge finally broke, and inside, the owner was just getting up, apparently woken by Prescott’s pounding on the other side of the trailer. Eberts hauled out his neighbour and helped him away from the trailer. His next move was to try to wake up anyone else nearby to get away from the trailer, which had propane tanks near the fire. Langley Township assistant fire chief Pat Walker said three halls were called out to deal with the fire, which appears to have started with an oil-filled space heater inside the RV. The owner is a lucky man today, thanks to his neighbours, Walker said. “He was fortunate to get out, because they go up quickly,” Walker said.

The trailer was quickly engulfed in flames, reported neighbours. Prescott, Eberts, and their neighbour Darlene Batista described how the flames shot up, scorching a tree behind the trailer and threatening to spread to the awning on Prescott’s RV. One side of her home is now scorched and browned, and everything in her small sideyard is at least slightly damaged. The owner of the destroyed trailer managed to find some personal belongings and ID in the trailer, but has lost almost everything else, from his home to his clothes. Eberts gave him some clothes, and the local emergency disaster relief service is providing a temporary place to stay and a voucher for some basic necessities of life. Prescott said she doesn’t think her neighbour had fire insurance. Prescott and Eberts now say they wish the fire response had been faster. While the Fort Langley fire hall is nearby, it is one of the remaining on-call firehalls in Langley, rather than

being staffed full-time with crews like Walnut Grove and Willoughby. Walker said the response was actually fairly fast – just a little over seven minutes. The first firefighters on scene were from the Fort Langley hall, and it took them six minutes to get to the hall, get on their gear and get rolling, a little over a minute to

arrive at the nearby RV park. It can feel like forever when waiting for a fire truck, Walker said. “I know what it’s like, because I’ve been on scene waiting for them show up,” Walker said. The neighbours said, with the increased population in Fort Langley, they’d like to see fulltime firefighters based there.

PM ponders economy in Langley

Matthew Claxton/Langley Advance

Prime Minister Stephen Harper stopped in Langley Friday for a small economic roundtable talk with Minister of Canadian Heritage James Moore, MP Mark Warawa, and some local business owners. The meeting took place at Hunni’s Urban Boutique on 200th Street.

will impact the road is the intersection of 248th Street and 16th Avenue. The Township has not made a final decision whether the intersection will be given a full set of signal lights, or if it will be turned into a roundabout. The roundabout would be more expensive in the short term because land would need to be purchased, Fox said. But it requires less maintenance and costs in the long term. Plans will be considered in the months to come. Some of the more recent incidents on 16th Avenue include: • Victor Duarte was killed when his vehicle was hit on Oct. 29, by a driver who was apparently fleeing a nearby RCMP traffic stop, and allegedly ran the stop sign. • In June, Teresa Townsley wanted answers about why two vehicles, within six months, crashed into her family’s yard between 208th and 216th Streets. • On Jan. 18, 2011, Jim “D.K.” Neiss, a 59-year-old bus driver for Langley School District, was slammed off the road by a dump truck just after 5:30 a.m. He was killed instantly.

Langley City council received some stats about the Gateway of Hope shelter for 2012. Councillor Gayle Martin, who sits on the Gateway committee, gave an update of the shelter and rehabilitation centre. Last year the facility provided 10,980 bed nights (of those 2,951 went to women, two for transgender people, and just over 8,000 to men). The facility averaged 30 beds filled per night. Of the users, 42 per cent stayed one night and 57 per cent stayed more than one night. The shelter was open for 15 extreme weather days during January, “which is unusual. That’s basically half a month,” she noted. So far this winter, Gateway has had 20 extreme weather days with an average stay of 8.5 people. The facility also operates a program for people to rebuild their lives. They can live there for up to two years. There are 25 rooms available and the occupancy rate is 15.6 rooms last year. As of January the occupancy rate has risen to 21. Martin noted the program has strict criteria. Through its connections with social service agencies and community organizations, the shelter can also accept people from elsewhere, if there’s space. Martin encouraged people to contribute to the Salvation Army Thrift Store on 272nd Street in Aldergrove, particularly gently used furniture. Proceeds from this store go to Gateway. “This is a major key to their economic success,” she noted.

Theft

Crooks about to find that bait leads police to them Thieves will have another hurdle when it comes to stealing from cars.

A keen-eyed witness helped Langley Mounties nab a suspect after a car break in near a busy intersection on Feb. 1. The RCMP were called about a suspicious man in a parking lot near 200th Street and the Langley Bypass, said Cpl. Holly Marks. The caller said the man appeared to be skulking around between cars, carrying some

kind of tool. When officers arrived and spotted the man, he immediately tossed something into a bush and tried to run away. The man was caught after a brief foot chase. A search of the bushes turned up a stolen wallet and a pair of scissors. A 30-year-old Surrey man was arrested and will appear in court later this year. Theft from vehicles has been a persistent problem around the Lower Mainland, even as actual car thefts had plunged over the last decade, since the introduction of the Bait Car program. Now the Integrated Municipal Provincial Auto Crime Team (IMPACT) is introducing “bait

property” in their cars, in an attempt to catch the thieves who don’t take the whole car. “Thieves already know, that if they steal a bait car, they’ll go to jail,” said Insp Gary Shinkaruk, of IMPACT. “With the kind of evidence we’re able to put before judges, the program has been tremendously successful at putting car thieves behind bars. But there’s a new message we need to get out to thieves now – steal from a bait car, go to jail.” Bait vehicles – which already include everything from trucks and cars to ATVs and boats – have now been upgraded with better audio and video technology. They are also being salted with

bait property, items such as tool boxes or gym bags. These items, however, can be tracked and monitored by police. Thieves breaking in to steal items will be seen live on video at the E-Comm 911 regional centre, which monitors all the province’s bait cars. Marks has some tips to prevent ordinary citizens from becoming the victim of car thefts or thefts from their vehicle. • If you have an older vehicle not equipped with an immobilizer – use an anti-theft device, like a steering wheel lock. • Park in secure, well-lit areas. • Remove your valuables and put anything that could tempt a thief in the trunk, even empty

Township

Langley sports icons could have new home

A hall of fame for Langley athletes could be established. by Matthew Claxton mclaxton@langleyadvance.com

Should Langley immortalize its most athletic residents in a new, local sports hall of fame? Township Councillor Steve Ferguson thinks so, and last week convinced his council colleagues to vote for an examination of the issue. “We just want to celebrate the accomplishments of Langley citizens,” said Ferguson. Ferguson said he isn’t planning an elaborate program or a new building. “It doesn’t have to be something big,” he said, and it shouldn’t be expensive. Either it could be installed in the Langley Events Centre, or it could be a mobile exhibit, moving from location to location around Langley so many residents could see it in their neighbourhood, said Ferguson. He said the idea was partly inspired when he saw that several other nearby communities, some

NEW OWNERS

smaller than Langley, have their own halls of fame. Langley residents have racked up trophies, awards, and secured places in pro leagues or Olympic berths. The sibling duo Brett and Danielle Lawrie have been dominating ballfields, Danielle in Olympic and university softball, Brett with the Toronto Blue Jays. Langley has sent teams to the Little League World Series, most recently in 2011, but also in 1964 and 1998. Braedon Dolfo has competed in the 100-metre dash at the most recent Paralympic games, coming in seventh, while Lauren Barwick holds gold and silver medals won in 2008 for para-equestrian. It’s in equestrian sports that a number of Langley residents have risen to prominence. “A while ago we were sort of counting on our fingers the numbers who were Olympians, and it’s quite a lot,” said David Esworthy. Esworthy is a longtime Langley resident and organizer of equestrian events, and with the BC Summer Games in 2010 and Langley’s Spirit of BC

Committee. Last fall he was inducted into the B.C. Sports Hall of Fame for his work building up equestrian sports. Langley, with thousands of horses, really began getting into equestrian sports about 25 to 30 years ago, Esworthy said. “It’s always been an equestrian place,” he said. Venues like the original Thunderbird riding facility and its larger successor, as well as smaller rings and stables, have nurtured sports like show jumping and dressage. “It’s now become the hub – we call it the horse capital of B.C.,” Esworthy

explained. Olympic equestrians included Hawley BennettAwad, Monica Pinette, in pentathlon, Leslie Reid, and Eleanore Elstone and Barwick in para-equestrian sports. All of them have competed since 2004. Esworthy thinks a hall of fame could give a boost to young athletes. “Things like that give a target for the up and coming something to shoot for,” he said. Staff are to come back with a report on the costs and possibilities surrounding a sports hall of fame later this year.

Little thought spared for cents

Those who persist in pining for the penny need to put it all in perspective. It’s simply not worth the bother. The penny’s worth has diminished so dramatically over the years, it’s practically worthless by historic measures. If you (or more likely, your grandfather or great grandfather) had put a penny in a drawer in 1914 and you took it out today, it would now buy one 20th of what it would have bought had it been spent, instead being squirrelled away. (That’s of course, discounting the interest of collectors who would undoubtedly pay you a fair penny for that 1914 penny, especially if it’s in good condition and not too badly nicked or worn – a perfect penny of that date could net you nearly $100.) In other words, even that Email with dime in your pocket today is worth about a half what a penny was worth at the start of World War One. Today’s dollar has the real-time value of a 1914 nickel. Indeed, the penny has become even less than worthless. For some time now, the Royal Canadian Mint has pointed out, it has been costing about 1.6 cents to mint a penny. That means every 50-cent roll of pennies has been costing taxpayers 30 cents more than they’re worth to put into circulation. So let’s no longer pine for the penny, shall we? It’s gotten long past its best-before date. In fact, perhaps it’s time to nix the nickel, too. Just move the decimal over one place, and the dime can be our new penny – still worth only half what a perfectly sensible and useful penny was only a handful of decades ago. The loonie consequently becomes the new dime, and the ten-spot could be minted as a new silver dollar (actually, more likely made of nickel or some other, cheaper composite metal). Our money would once again be worth every penny. – B.G.

WOLF continuing Grey Pit efforts

Dear Editor, WOLF’s effort in the past five months has had overwhelming public support to persuade Langley Township to protect all of the Gray Pit lands ecosystem. I thank

council for listening to our concerns and taking the majority off the market. WOLF’s mandate is to generate a broader public understanding of the value of forested areas within the

Environment

Stop genetic modifications

Dear Editor, Did you know that the federal government of Canada approved the use of the drug Thalidomide, and that Canada was the last country on earth to ban its use? A full year after it was banned elsewhere? Let us be the first to keep freakish fish out of our country. Let us wait at least 50 years to see how the rest of the genetically modified organism experiments end up. Stop it now. Should we trust the Canadian government? I have urgent concern about the risks of genetically modified (GM) fish and to make sure Environment Canada does not approve production of GM Atlantic salmon eggs or fish in Canada. The US company AquaBounty wants to produce all of its GM salmon eggs on Prince Edward Island and then ship the eggs to Panama for growing out and processing, to send the fish into the U.S. consumer market. This plan is extremely risky for Canada and the rest of the world. I am alarmed that the entire process for assessing environmental risk is secret and that the public has no chance to be involved or be consulted. Canada has an international responsibility to stop living pollution. Please instruct Environment Canada to reject any request to approve production of GM salmon or salmon eggs. The risk to Atlantic salmon is too great. We don’t want another Thalidomide. Wally Martin, Murrayville

Township. We take our role seriously and are committed to lobbying our local government where we feel that the public interest is not being met. One of the primary roadblocks in this process is the Township’s reliance on the Community Charter which allows discussion of property matters in camera. We don’t believe it is an appropriate policy with respect to disposal of “surplus” lands in the Township. Further to the Township’s recent announcement regarding the Gray Pit lands, some may assume that the battle is over and that a satisfactory compromise has been reached. However, WOLF continues to lobby for protection of the entire Gray Pit lands, and a solution that would save the wetlands from destruction.

Feb. 11 brought families to the Langley Fine Arts School’s Family Day Arts Festival.

Langley’s first ever Family Day Arts Festival gave young people a chance to try out various art styles and methods as well as see where the arts can take people. Booked to perform were professional arts groups – indigenous dance and theatre troupe Red Sky, history performing group the Canadiana Musical Theatre Co., mime Dianna David and hip hop dance

troupe Project Soul. Throughout the day the kids could try out belly and other forms of dance, photography, storytelling, crafts, jewelry making, 2D and 3D art projects, drama, and music. Open to kids ages four to 12 from throughout the Lower Mainland, the event was hosted by the Langley Fine Arts School at the Chief Sepass Theatre as part of its ArtsMatter lecture and workshop series. This weekend saw B.C.’s first Family Day and the plan is for the locally created festival to become an annual event on the new February holiday.

The Doctor Is In At The Salvation Army Gateway of Hope we are very blessed to have an onsite medical room, staffed voluntarily by two local doctors - Dr. S. Tyler and Dr. T. Sleigh. At present the doctors are at the Gateway once per week attending to a variety of our guests needs. They can assess a variety of concerns, such as: diabetes, nutrition, minor wounds, asthma, cholesterol, skin and lung conditions, check blood pressure and much more. When we had a chance to talk to Dr. Tyler about why he helps at the Gateway, he told us that he has a long history with The Salvation Army. When he was 5 years old, his parents had separated and they were struggling at Christmas-there were no presents. Someone suggested a Christmas production at The Salvation Army, where there were puppets, goody bags and Santa even showed up and gave out presents. Dr. Tyler received a present and he was thrilled to open the package and find a toy airplane (which started a love with airplanes that he has to this day). The whole thing had a big impact on him and so now that he’s in a place where he’s able to give back he thought what better place than The Salvation Army. He had been thinking of opening a free clinic somewhere in Langley, when he ran into Troy Gaglardi, Director of Operations at the Gateway of Hope. When Troy mentioned the need for medical aid at the Gateway it was an answer to prayer for all concerned.

Pos-Abilities offers possible prizes The Langley PosAbilities Society is active around town. by Heather Colpitts hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

A local group devoted to helping people with disabilities is hoping people will show some heart. The Langley Pos-Abilities Society has a raffle that will be drawn Valentine’s Day. Tickets are $2 apiece or three for $5. And up for grabs are two tickets and swag for the Abbotsford Heat or a quilt provided by the Langley Quilters’ Guild. “They win one or the other,” explained society founder Zosia Ettenberg. “That way we’re hopefully marketing to the whole community.” The society helps people with assistive devices and also works to raise aware-

ness and educate people about disabilities. Proceeds are used for running the society. “One of the hardest things for non-profits is to get operating funds,” she said. All the society members volunteer their time and energies. The society hosted the 24-Challenge last year at the Langley Events Centre to spotlight mobility issues. Plans are in the works for a summer event in Douglas Park if community grants can be obtained.

Waste being kept out of the landfill It appears plenty of kitchen waste is already leaving the City’s garbage stream. by Heather Colpitts

hcolpitts@langleyadvance.com

Langley City residents haven’t wasted any time adopting the new green waste program that started Jan. 2. Residents are expected to put any food waste in with yard waste so the materials can be taken for composting, instead of into the landfill. “We’re still going through the adjustment phase, but we’re encouraged by these tonnage results,” said City administrator Francis Cheung. The City budgeted this year for a 15 per cent reduction in garbage amounts for 2013 because green waste is being diverted with rates rising after that. Up to 35 per cent

of waste is food/yard waste. In January 2012 the waste contractor collected about 27,100 tonnes of green waste. Since the program started, residents have put out 52,600 tonnes, or a 93.7 per cent increase over the same month last year. Garbage amounts for January 2012 were 158,490 tonnes but fell to 87,500 tonnes for the same time in 2013. That’s a 44.8 per cent reduction. For recycling, the amounts went from over 87,000 tonnes last year to 115,810 tonnes this year, a 31.8 per cent increase in the amount people are blue boxing. The next figures on the amended waste program will be available at the end of February. “I want to thank the people of Langley for taking up the charge and changing habits,” said Mayor Peter Fassbender. For the green waste program, the City is allowing green cans of

The City website www.city.langley.bc.ca has an example of acceptable smaller containers. “Our collector has noticed some residents have placed organic waste containers that are smaller than 50 litres, and they are difficult to see among the garbage, recycling and yard trimmings placed at the curb,” said Cheung. Additional greencan stickers as well as garbage and recycling pickup schedules and fridge magnets are available at City hall on Douglas Crescent. The City reminds residents that kraft brown bags are usable but the brown bags with plastic layers are not useable because the plastic takes too long to decompose. To reduce odours, the City recommends lining the green waste bin in the home and the curbside greencan with newspapers.

Do you know an individual or a couple who improves life for others and makes a difference in the community? If so, the Township of Langley would like to know about them. Nominations are being accepted for the Eric Flowerdew 2012 Volunteer of the Year Award and the 2012 John and Muriel Arnason Volunteers of the Year Award. The deadline for nominations has been extended to Thursday, Feb. 21. The public is encouraged to nominate residents who go above and beyond, and give them an opportunity to be recognized. Each year, the Township honours its top volunteers at an awards banquet in April. While the Pete Swensson Award is presented to an outstanding youth from nominees selected by their schools, the community can nominate individuals or couples whose efforts deserve recognition. The Eric Flowerdew Award is presented to a volunteer who promotes an active living lifestyle that enhances residents’ quality of life through creative, cultural, physical, or social pursuits; promotes traditional and non-traditional recreation activities; and enhances Langley’s community spirit. The John and Muriel Arnason Award celebrates a volunteer couple who serve together to advocate culture, learning, and literacy; foster partnerships and cooperative efforts; and create the potential for long-term benefits to the Langley community. For additional criteria, nomination forms, and information contact Sarah Larsh, Township of Langley Corporate Administration, at slarsh@tol.ca or call 604533-6115.

February 14 Contest

Love link fine kettle of Fish Lovebirds who met online are winners of the Langley Advance’s Valentine’s Day contest.

M

y name is Jennifer Thomson and I am the traffic reporter for a Lower Mainland radio station. For anyone who’s ever listened, the topic of my love life was always been joked about, especially because of my terrible luck with relationships. Mike Cooper and I met on Plenty of Fish. Or as I used to call it, Plenty of A-holes. Haha. I had tried POF, on and off for years, as had he, both with the hope of “maybe this will work” after hearing so many success stories from friends. I had gone on some pleasant dates with some very nice people, some of whom are now friends but had also seen my share of jerks and desperate people who seemed to be online only to rack up their ego. I had met guys who had lied about every-

thing from their height to their job status. Mike had also met some duds, and we were basically giving online dating one last shot. Last summer, after exchanging a few emails, we met in White Rock and went to the Boathouse for our first date. He was a little more shy than I’m used to but we really clicked and hit it off immediately and we both knew we couldn’t wait to see each other again. We talked the next day and saw each other again and after a whirlwind three weeks, he basically came over and never left. He moved in officially the following month. I had cancer three years ago and as cliché as it sounds, he is the gift in getting through it. I know I was supposed to live because of him. I never imagined I would find a love like this – especially online. We are excited about spending our first Valentine’s Day together as well as my 40th birthday in Mexico. We are talking marriage and looking forward to a beautiful life together. Thomson won a Pasta Polo gift certificate for sharing her high-tech tale.

60 SEASONS OF PRIDE CATCH ALL THE ACTION DURING THE HISTORIC 60TH SEASON

…continue from page A17 Smooth skating Kodiaks’ defenceman Stefan Gonzales was a dominant force, finishing with a goal and two assists. His first period tally was an end-toend rush, finished off with a laser beam into the net. The 20-year-old, who will play for Selkirk College Saints of the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League next season, is the top scoring defenceman in the PJHL. Prior to joining the Kodiaks, Gonzales played three seasons in the B.C. Hockey League with the Coquitlam Express (2009/10) and Quesnel Millionaires (2010/11). He split last season between the Chilliwack Chiefs and the Victoria Grizzlies. “He’s such a fantastic young man,” Johnson said, regarding his ace defenceman. “He’s got lots of power and he skates well.” The Kodiaks put their four-game winning streak on the line this past Saturday against the Tom Shaw-conference leading Richmond Sockeyes, who entered the weekend with a PJHL-best 31-8-0-1 record. Results were not available due to holiday weekend early press deadlines. • More online at www.langleyadvance.com, click on “Sports”
