Saddle Sore

Katie and Jewel Keca

Yesterday afternoon sisters KATIE and JEWEL KECA slowly rode their horses down the street in Crescent Beach. The two riders eased their mounts into the Pacific Ocean which marked their cross country trip on horseback.

The sisters began this ride by crossing the country in sections. The final stage brought them through the Rockies this summer, at times riding 12 hours a day.

The sisters ride raised money for the Lions Foundation of Canada Dog Guides. Information about their cause, and their blog full of photos and stories, can be found here.

Victim of fatal Langley shooting identified



The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team (IHIT) is requesting public assistance to further its investigation into the shooting death of 33-year-old Justin Haevischer. 

On September 10, 2019 shortly after 8 p.m., Justin Haevischer was shot to death outside a McDonald’s restaurant at 264 Street and 56 Avenue in Langley, B.C. IHIT and the Langley RCMP continue to complete priority tasks and gather evidence.

Haevischer’s older brother Cody was convicted, along with Red Scorpion gangster Matthew Johnston, of first-degree murder and conspiracy in the Oct. 19, 2007 slaughter of six men — including two bystanders — in a Surrey penthouse apartment.

IHIT is releasing Justin Haevischer’s name in an effort to determine his activities and who he may have had contact with prior to his death.

“Our investigators continue to push ahead on this investigation and urge any witnesses who have yet to come forward to call IHIT immediately,” says Sergeant Frank Jang of IHIT. 

Anyone with information is asked to call the IHIT information line at 1-877-551- IHIT (4448), or by email at ihitinfo@rcmp-grc.gc.ca.

Surrey Mayor Doug McCallum Says There Will be No Lyft For Uber

In a speech to hundreds of taxi drivers yesterday Surrey Mayor DOUG MCCALLUM reiterated his opposition to ride sharing companies coming to Surrey. MCCALLUM went on to say he would block LYFT and UBER from setting up in Surrey by denying them business licenses.

HOLD ON:

The B.C. Ministry of Transportation said in a statement late Tuesday that the city can't prevent ride-hailing companies from operating.

The ministry acknowledged municipalities can mandate business licenses, but said that only the Passenger Transportation Board can regulate taxis and ride-hailing vehicles, including the control of supply, boundaries and rates.

I enjoy my job as a visual artist. I get to honour in visual form what happens to us as human beings. I get to try to help capture and preserve within an image feelings that I sense we need to have seared into our memories which also helps us remain connected to ourselves and to our world. On the day Nature broke apart our White Rock Pier, I, too, felt disconnected in a ragged form of brokenness and left scattered in potential insignificance. I needed to record and honour these feelings and then share them with others.

I invite everyone to Make Art an Integral Part of Their Life! It is essential to our human existence. This is my prescription: Give yourselves time this year to enjoy the Peninsula Art Tour on September 28 & 29. You'll feel much better. David.

Chesney's Chestnuts

A wife served some homemade cinnamon rolls for breakfast and waited eagerly for her husband’s reaction.

When none was immediately forthcoming, she asked, “If I baked these commercially, how much do you think I could get for one of them?”

Without looking up from his newspaper, he replied, “About ten years.”
