A new youth-driven documentary explores the issues faced by gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender students in high school. The short film emerged from the Hope Inclusion Project’s Challenge Day earlier this year, which strived to create understanding and empathy among its participants. A community survey two years ago found that racism and hate is prevalent in high school. The Hope Inclusion Project decided to explore

Participants will compete in several different events to see who can recover a predetermined amount of gold flakes from a bucket of pay dirt the fastest. The event attracts about 150 panners every year from as far away as Europe. “The competition draw is ‘Gold Fever’ and they will all catch it,” said event organizer Dan Moore, who is better known as Yukon Dan. “In the hey day 25,000 miners searched for gold in these parts.” The event kicks off on Thursday with two days of workshops and

demonstrations in Yale. Free gold panning will be held Thursday and Friday from 1-4 p.m. There will also be free metal detecting for children and teens on Friday night. Competition gets underway on Saturday at 9:30 a.m., with the top third in each category moving into the Sunday finals. All beginners will get a professional panner as a coach and every child that enters the competition receives a new gold pan and bag of pay dirt. Over $5,000 in prizes are up for grabs this year, including chainsaw carvings of min-

ers panning for gold. Moore will also put $2,000 worth of gold into two piles of dirt at the end of the competition and panners will get to keep what they find. The Fraser River Gold Panning Championships is held at Anderson Creek Campground, located about one hour north of Hope on Highway 1. Entry for children and teens is $5, and $10 for adults and professionals. Children seven and under are free. For more information, contact Moore at 604-948-4941 or gold@ yukondan.com.

Local families hosted 19 students from Hope’s sister city of Izu, Japan this week. They spent their time here skating at Hope Arena, picnicking at Othello Tunnels and visiting Hell’s Gate. The trip marks the first time many of the students have been to Canada. “Much effort and detail is put into ensuring our guests have the most memorable and meaningful Canadian experience with our wonderful host families that is not only culturally enriching, but also to enable friendships that will last a lifetime,” said Lori Izawa, sister city coordinator and cultural liaison. Council, district staff and RCMP members welcomed the

group during a special ceremony on Monday night. Mayor Yutaka Kikuchi and several other officials from Izu were also in attendance. “We’re so privileged and honoured to have you in our community,” said Mayor Susan Johnston on Monday. “I have no doubt that you’ll find the hospitality in this community exemplary and I’m sure that this will be a memorable time for you here. We’re delighted to have you as our sister city and anything that we can do to make that relationship better, just speak and we’ll listen.” Hope has hosted hundreds of junior high school students from Iza since the exchange program started in 1995.

Carving competition attracts thousands More than 4,500 people poured into downtown Hope to watch the Chainsaw Carving Competition Aug. 1619. The event featured eight world-renown carvers, including local favourite Pete Ryan, sculpting cedar logs into intricate pieces of art in Memorial Park. “It went very well,” said organizer Victor Smith, adding that the souvenir T-shirts designed by Sasquatch Sign Company sold out. “The carvers and everybody enjoyed it.” Each carver received $1,000 for participating in the competition this year. An additional $3,000 was awarded to first place, $2,000 to second, and $1,000 to third. A $1,000 people’s choice award was also handed out at the end of the competition. “Everyone did a fabulous job and we’re just grateful to have these people come and participate in the competition,” said Mayor Susan Johnston “To be able to auction the speed carvings off twice during the event made people feel so good about getting a piece of the action.” A total of $5,320 was raised from the speed carving competitions on Saturday and Sunday.

Opinion

ICBC mishandled The BC Liberals have completely mishandled ICBC, and the proof came last week, when a review showed that the company has been hiring boatloads of senior managers and paying them more each year — with the government apparently oblivious. There are 32 per cent more managers than in 2007, and they are paid (as a group) 70 per cent more than managers received in 2007. Fifty-four of them made more than $200,000 each in 2011. The Liberals insisted, on taking office in 2001, that ICBC didn’t need to be privatized, nor did there need to be complete competition in the auto insurance sector. They have also insisted, especially in recent years, that substantial dividends from ICBC go back to the shareholder — the government. This means that all ICBC customers, and that’s everyone who owns a vehicle, are paying additional insurance premiums to boost government revenues. It’s a tax grab, hidden in the guise of insurance costs. The government has now, very belatedly, said ICBC meeds to cut its management costs and manager compensation. This comes just after ICBC has boosted insurance rates by 11.2 per cent. The simple fact is this: ICBC is being used by government for all sorts of purposes that are far afield from its ostensible role as a public car insurance company. This isn’t new — the NDP did this with ICBC back in its earliest days. But it certainly points out that the Liberals are just as good as the NDP at mismanaging Crown corporations and sticking taxpayers with extra costs. ICBC needs to be privatized. There is no real need to have government operate a car insurance company that forces all drivers to buy at least basic car insurance. – Black Press

Time for investment in forests B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher The B.C. government’s emergency committee on timber supply has produced its report, but it leaves many of the big questions unanswered. Can the Burns Lake sawmill, destroyed by fire last winter, be given enough timber to rebuild? It’s likely, committee members concluded, if areas that are currently considered “marginally economic” are harvested. With nearly half the pine in that region dead from beetle infestation, and much of the better timber already cut, that means harvesting areas that would produce only about two thirds of the volume that is currently considered economical to log. Will eight more sawmills have to close once the beetle-killed

timber becomes too degraded to cut in the next few years? Committee members hold out hope that extending the cut to less economic timber stands can reduce this impact as well. But with the current cut far above historical levels to maximize beetle-kill harvest, some industry contraction seems inevitable. All this depends on adequate forest inventory and investment in replanting, fertilizing and provision of additional roads and power lines that would allow access to timber and potential bioenergy development. And that is where the political fight lies ahead. The timber supply committee delivered a unanimous report, despite the harsh divisions between the B.C. Liberal and NDP members who serve on it. NDP forest critic Norm Macdonald, vice chair of the committee, agreed it did good work during the seven months it has toured affected areas of the B.C.

Interior. But he said the roots of the problem go back a decade, to when the B.C. Liberals started reducing support for forest health just as the beetle epidemic was spreading. Ten years ago the government removed the obligation for the province to reforest areas affected

those areas, and cut the budget by 90 per cent,” Macdonald told me. “The three-year budget that’s in front of us is keeping on the downward slide, and it’s not what people in communities are saying is the answer. So that has to change.” The opposition, the auditor general and various forest experts have been blasting the government for the degraded state of the timber inventory, at a time when environmental changes have been sweeping. Steve Thomson, minister of the newly amalgamated forests, lands and natural resource operations ministry, points to the urgent efforts to upgrade the government’s detailed picture of the state of the forests, so it can consider new cutting, planting and fertilizing efforts. But there’s no denying that he came to the job in a crisis that will take more spending in the future, and he will have a hard

time finding it as Finance Minister Kevin Falcon looks to balance the books for the 2013 election. If nothing else, the pine beetle epidemic has forced the B.C. government to consider some of the intensive forest management that we hear about in Scandinavia, one of those places that supplies B.C. with wood furniture. And it has prompted renewed interest in offering new forest tenures to aboriginal communities with unresolved resource claims. Under current law, the government can only direct award new forest tenures to aboriginal communities. So part of the committee’s proposed solution is to “expedite negotiations” with the Burns Lake First Nations to give them a chance to harvest some of the marginally economic forest areas that remain.

Letters Proposal a conflict of interest ure? The Alberta option would also eliminate the added expense of building a recycling pipeline for the toxic distillate used to thin that gooey heavy oil. I can think of two reasons: (1) refining crude oil requires enormous quantities of water, and (2) Enbridge intends to ship bitumen out of Kitimat come hell, high water or a refinery. When I heard the

company spearheading the bitumen refinery proposal was called Kitimat Clean Ltd, I instantly thought of George Orwell’s book 1984. In that fictional tale about tyranny, the Ministry of War is called the Ministry of Peace and the Ministry of Propaganda is called the Ministry of Truth. Kitimat Clean sounds like a name dreamt up by a team of public re-

lation consultants after they consumed too many martinis. Hopefully Mister Black will not misuse the power of his newspapers (over 80 of them are here in BC) to limit criticism of the Northern Gateway project and thereby manipulate public information. As anyone can see, there is now the potential for a conflict of interest. Lloyd Atkins

Tsunami debris poses greater risk We seem to have many opinions on oil pipelines. I lived next door and a short distance away from the Trans-Mountain Pipeline most of my life. At no time was it ever a problem. They, as well as the refineries, were excellent neighbours and quite willing to answer concerns and take action to investigate possible problems. There was a leak in my area of Burnaby after I had moved. I would have been devastated as I am very much affected by oil, including oil stoves in regular use. No one wants a spill, but I do believe that no

one has thought this situation through. We need oil. Supposed environmentalists would be the first to complain if they were deprived of any small convenience. Transportation, air conditioning, computers and cell phones. I feel that most opposing the pipeline are insincere in their environmental concerns. What I do not understand is why they cannot come to some compromise. It would be in the best interests of everyone to find a solution as quickly as possible. My reasoning has nothing to do with oil. We will need the sup-

port and financial assistance of some large companies to clean up the mess that is heading to our ocean coastline because of the debris from Japan. All the complaining groups will find themselves without federal, provincial or local support when the mess hits the coastline of B.C. This blanket of junk will do more damage than the oil spills that might happen from the transport of oil from Alberta. All these private boats and sailing vessels that use the Vancouver harbour should be ashamed of themselves

The people who use the Vancouver harbour should have the equivalent to BCAA. The federal government wants the pipeline to go through. Is this the same government we will be asking to clear our beaches of debris? I really think that B.C. should be thinking about what to do with the debris.

$13-billion oil refinery proposed for Kitimat Tom Fletcher Black Press

A Victoria businessman is heading up a proposal to build a $13-billion oil refinery in Kitimat. David Black, chairman and owner of Black Press, announced Friday he wants to build a world scale oil refinery at Kitimat, B.C. Black told a news conference in Vancouver Friday he is submitting an environmental assessment application to build a “world scale” oil refinery on behalf of Kitimat Clean Ltd., a company owned by Black. The application to the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office is expected this fall. The proposed refinery would be big enough to process all the diluted bitumen carried by Enbridge’s proposed Northern Gateway pipeline. Black said he has had extensive discussions with Enbridge and other players in the Canadian oil industry, but none has so far offered to back the project. Black said he will use his own money to finance the proposal through environmental assessment, which he expects to cost several million dollars. After that, he said investors would be needed to complete it, assuming both the refinery and the pipeline receive approval. He has had preliminary meetings with Kitimat and Terrace councils, as well as the Haisla and Kitselas First Nations in the region. The proposed site is a 3,000-hectare Crown industrial property between Terrace and Kitimat. Kitimat Mayor Joanne Monaghan spoke by phone to the news conference, offering encouragement for the proposal. But Black acknowledged he does not yet have formal support from communities or investors. “I see myself as a catalyst to make this happen,” said Black, who first proposed the idea to the province

David Black shows a sample of thick bitumen from the Alberta oil sands. His proposal to build an oil refinery would keep diluted bitumen from being shipped in bulk from the B.C. coast.

and the industry seven years ago when he was chairman of the B.C. Progress Board. Black is working with Glenn McGinnis, a consulting engineer and former manager of the Ioco oil refinery in Port Moody. “We want it [the Kitimat refinery] to be the cleanest and greenest upgrading and refining site in the world,” McGinnis said. The refinery would produce 240,000 barrels per day of diesel, 100,000 barrels per day of gasoline and 50,000 barrels per day of kerosene or aviation fuel, refined from heavy oil. Among those attending the news conference was Art Sterritt, executive director of the Coastal First Nations, a group in the Kitimat area that has strongly opposed the pipeline proposal. Sterritt disputed Black’s assertion that a B.C. refinery “solves half of the problem” with exported oil by shipping refined gasoline, jet fuel and diesel

in tankers instead of heavy crude. Those products have their own risks, Sterritt said. Black pointed out that without marine shipments of those fuels, the remote coastal communities Sterritt represents would not be able to function. The lighter fuel products are still an environmental hazard, but they dissipate much more quickly and do not persist for many years like spilled heavy crude, he said. NDP energy critic John Horgan was also skeptical. “At this point, it’s a proposal without business partners and without First Nations and local community support,” Horgan said. “It doesn’t change our position [opposing] the Enbridge Northern Gateway project.” Black said the refinery will mean nearly 6,000 construction jobs over a five-year period, 3,000 permanent jobs at the refinery and tax revenue for various levels of government.

Travelling by Voyageur canoe, they learned about the impact of glaciers on the Cascade Mountains over the past 10,000 years. Jon Riedel of the U.S. National Parks Service shared his 25 years of research in the Skagit, revealing the dramatic reduction that has occurred to the region’s glaciers during that time due to global warming.

compression ratios will know that’s a pretty good number for an everyday car. If you could not care less, suffice to say the 155 horsepower and 150 lb-ft of torque are all there and pretty quickly. This Mazda is no slug. And thanks to some fancy engine plumbing, the power comes on smoothly, without any knocking or hesitation. All very impressive. Then there’s the new automatic transmission. Delicious. Again, only a geek would care why the shifts are so good (the torque converter is basically on the job only during gear changes) but let me tell you, up-shifts are smooth and downshifts are rev-matched. They are seriously snappy, too. As is the overall handling of the CX-5. Meanwhile, the exterior design is an eye-grabber and the cabin is roomy, intelligently useful and airy. Outward visibility is exceptional, rearseat room is good for adults and the big cargo area expands thanks to near-flat folding rear seatback. As family haulers go, the CX-5 looks like a winner. No, that’s damning with faint praise. Mazda, in fact, has just thrown down the gauntlet in this segment. The competition should start tearing down CX-5s ASAP.

CX-5 RAISES THE BAR the city, 5.7 highway for front-drive models with the six-speed manual transmission. Front-drivers with the six-speed automatic get 7.7 city/6.1 highway and with AWD and the automatic, 8.0 city/6.4 highway. Using regular gas across the board. Mazda, then, is taking aim at the heart of the new-vehicle market in Canada with a crossover that is very capable, looks sharp and is fun-todrive. All at an appealing price. If Mazda gets this right, the CX-5 will not be a niche player. You’re going to see them all over your neighbourhood. The CX-5 is, for the present, the future of Mazda. It’s Mazda going all in for the first time with SkyActiv fuel-saving technologies. For instance, there is a new global platform architecture here, and it is 8 per cent lighter and 30 per cent more rigid than the company’s previous small-car architecture. Most interesting, I think, is that this small-car architecture has yielded a fuel-efficient crossover that not only isn’t a bore to drive, but is almost as big as the current Mazda CX-7. SkyActiv at work. Speaking of which, the heart of it, really, is Mazda’s new Skyactiv-G direct-injected, 2.0-litre, inline- four-cylinder gasoline engine. Director Technobabble had a long and detailed presentation to explain why this engine is so good, so strong, and so efficient and if you must know, the essence of it all is the 13:1 compression ratio using regular gas.

2013 MAZDA CX-5

The story of the 2013 Mazda CX-5 began in 2005 when Mazda began mapping out its long-term strategy in a post-Ford world. This is how the car business works. What you see in showrooms today was conceived long ago. SkyActiv, the buzzword Mazda is using to describe the company’s comprehensive take on improving fuel economy and reducing emissions in vehicles that remain fun to drive, is all about “wiping the slate clean,” says Mazda senior engineer Dave Coleman, the selfdescribed Director of Technobabble. “No more parts-bin engineering,” he adds. By that he means this: The CX-5 and all that comes next from Mazda represent what you might call a holistic approach to vehicle development. Everything you will see from Mazda going forward, from the powertrains to the platforms, from the designs to engineering top to bottom – all if it is about “squeezing maximum efficiency from existing technologies.” Yeah, but why should you care? You’re not a technogeek. But if you’re like 300,000 other Canadians or so, you will be buying a compact SUV of some sort this year or next year or the year after, each and every year. Canadians love their compact SUVs; sales here account for 17 per cent of the entire new-vehicle market and just in the last two years have doubled. So you are very likely to want something along the lines of a Honda CR-V, Hyundai Tucson, Ford Escape, Chevrolet Equinox, Kia Sportage, Toyota RAV4 and Nissan Rogue. If you are a Mazda owner, you will likely be moving up from a Mazda3, although Mazda wants you if you are a former Honda Civic or Ford Focus owner, too. If that’s you, the base version of the CX-5, the GX with front-wheel-drive, starts at $22,995. The volume model, the GS, lists for $27,895 and the top-of-the-line GT starts at $32,495. All are well equipped, but of course, as you pay more you get more. AWD, for instance, is a $2,000 option on GX and GS models, standard on the GT. Most importantly to Mazda, the CX-5 offers the “best highway fuel economy of any SUV sold in Canada – including hybrids:” 7.8 litres/100 km in

The original Bibles at Christ Church National Historic Site will be appraised at the church’s Heritage Roadshow on Aug. 25.

A stroke of luck and good timing heralded the return of historic artifacts to Christ Church. The set of three Bibles, which were stolen in late June, now await their turn to be appraised at the church’s Heritage Roadshow on Aug. 25. “Getting them appraised will be the first step in keeping them safe,” said Christine Elliott, the student who first discovered the theft of the Bibles, “but it will also be an opportunity for everyone else to get a closer look at a piece of the church’s history.” The event will be held upstairs in the Christ Church hall, which is located next to the historical church. “We first thought of

hosting such an event, and made the initial inquiries last spring while antique hunting for specific items to complete an exhibit at the church,” said Darla Dickinson, one of the show coordinators. Light refreshments will be available throughout the day for those who are getting their antiques appraised. Time slots will be divided up into 15-minute increments per item. The appraisal cost is $5 per item or $12 for three items. Doors open at 10 a.m. Anyone who wants to have their antiques appraised needs to register in advance by calling Elliott at 604-869-5402 to secure a time with the appraisers.

It won’t happen in time for the provincial election next spring, but the B.C. government is moving ahead with Premier Christy Clark’s pledge to examine online voting at the local and provincial level. Some municipalities have suggested modernizing elections to make voting more convenient, and reverse the recent trend to lower voter participation. Clark proposed the idea during last year’s B.C. Liberal leadership campaign. Justice Minister Shirley Bond has asked Chief Electoral Officer Keith Archer to set up an expert panel to make recommendations. Archer asked the government last year to give him authority to conduct pilot projects for electronic voting, and to consider extending voter registration to 16and 17-year-olds, as has been done in Australia and some U.S. states. During his leadership bid, Health Minister Mike de Jong proposed lowering the voting age from 18 to 16, to encourage younger people to get involved as part of their high school education. Nola Western, deputy chief electoral officer at Elections B.C., said the panel will likely need until 2014 to recommend changes to the Election Act that would permit online voting. Independent experts on Internet security and electoral administration will be asked to serve on a committee chaired by Archer, with a first meeting expected by October.

with one mandatory hold and vet in. Dent took third place in the lighweight division, while Dickenson finished second in the heavyweight. Taylor and Pascucci com-

peted in the Level 2 challenge, which was a 47-kilometre (29mile) ride with one mandatory hold and vet in. Pascucci finished third in the heavyweight division. An unfortunate mis-

step by Taylor’s horse Joe Cody caused a stone bruise to his foot leaving him disqualified. Taylor did however take home the award for “most bubbly rider.”

Library can help you declutter (2012) with Glenn Close was pretty good and it’s based on a book of the same name. The library is a great place to find a good, and new, movie, with 214 catalogue entries for 2012 DVDs in our catalogue. That’s just movies and television shows in English. There are documentaries and DVDs in other languages as well. And this fall, the library has lots of programs from redesigning your home and

**** On the nightstand: Right now there are a couple of patron recommendations - Gordon Pape’s new book Retirement’s Harsh New Realities: Protecting Your Money in a Changing World and Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. Pape’s book is an infor-

mative, if frightening, look at how retirement in Canada and how “traditional” retirement will change as more and more boomers hit their 60s. Fahrenheit 451 is a classic. Originally published in 1953, it reads eerily prescient. Best of all, in the “Conversation with Ray Bradbury” in this 50th anniversary edition, Bradbury says: “Without the library, you have no civilization.” Love it!

was Peter Walsh’s It’s All Too Much: An Easy Plan for Living a Richer Life with Less Stuff that really resonated and got me moving. Walsh contends that attachment to our “things” should reflect our life’s goals and values. So there I was busily decluttering when it occurred to me that I could be listening to a good story (it’s hard to read a book and haul garbage) at the same time. What good timing! The library just subscribed to a new ebook service and it’s super easy to download books and get listening. Of the 356 e-Audiobooks now available on FVRL’s OneClick Digital service, over 100 are always available – no waitlists! So I promptly downloaded Elizabeth Hay’s Alone in the Classroom. Only took a few minutes from clicking “Play” on our homepage, then “eCollection,” and there it was: OneClickdigital. Just create a new account and Bob’s your uncle! After a day of cleaning, maybe a movie is in order? Albert Nobbs

The geese are flocking, there’s dew on the grass, and a bit of a chill in the air. The library’s Summer Reading Club (we had 232 readers this year) wraps up next week and that’s it, summer is officially over! The changing of the seasons often means changes in our lives — especially in September. Perhaps it is years of heading off to school but every September I find myself eager to de-clutter and Deb launch new Ireland projects. The library has tons of books on clutter and housecleaning. Using the keyword search term “clutter,” you can quickly find over 30 titles. And then even more by using the subject searches “storage in the home,” “orderliness,” or “house cleaning.” Using a more serendipitous approach though, I checked out two books which recently came across the library counter. One was What’s a Disorganized Person to Do? by Stacey Platt. This book offers 317 tips and tricks for sorting and organizing. But it

Four local riders recently took up the challenge of participating in their first competitive trail ride. The women – Becki Dent, her daughter Darla Dickenson, and friends Shelly Taylor and Denise Pascucci – headed to 108 Mile Hills Health Ranch on Aug. 10. Competitive trail riding differs from endurance riding in that riders must first weigh in with the saddle and bags their horses will carry. Along with body weight, the rider is then categorized as lightweight or heavyweight. The riders also start with a base point of 300 and can loose points depending on the horse’s vetting (hydration, pulse, gait, etc.) as well as time. Riders are allowed to return to base camp 10 minutes early or 10 minutes late before loosing points. Dent and Dickenson entered the Level 1 competition, which had them navigate 31 kilometres (19 miles) of countryside

Sports Hope Minor Hockey hosts clinic next week The workshop focuses on improving skating skills and game techniques Barry Stewart Hope Standard

BARRY STEWART / THE STANDARD

Nathan Holding (left), Kevin Misumi and Dale Howell make the first scratches in the newly-installed ice at the Hope Arena last Monday. Hope and District Minor Hockey is holding mini-clinics next week — and on August 29 the rec centre is hosting an exhibition match between the Chilliwack Chiefs and the Merritt Centennials.

ing, stick handling, passing and skating. “The cost is $80 per player,” added Lang, “but they have to be registered with Hope Minor Hockey, for insurance purposes.” Mini-camp registration forms can be downloaded from the club’s website at w w w.hopeminorhockey. com. See “hockey camps” in the main menu on the left. The arena’s big midweek

event is the preseason clash between the Chilliwack Chiefs and the Merritt Centennials on August 29 at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 and are available at the rec centre’s reception desk. Early registrations for Hope Minor Hockey have given the executive a good picture of where numbers are needed. It has been typical to have two teams in each of the divisions from atom

through midget — but it has to start at the bottom and so far, the numbers in Hockey 1 to 4 are sparse. “We only have 11 registered in Hockey 1 to 4,” said Lang, “and only one of the 11 is in the H1/H2 age. Ideally, I would love to double these numbers and have an H1/H2 team and an H3/H4 team. “In atom, we have 20 skaters and two goalies. This is not quite enough for two

teams,” explained Lang. “At least four more forwards are needed there. “We had a very successful atom rep team last year but lots of them moved up to peewee and the way the numbers shook down there weren’t enough players for a rep team in either division — so some of the peewees are trying out for rep in Chilliwack.

If you’ve been melting in the recent heat wave, the Hope Arena is now about the coolest place in town to get a break from it. The ice was officially opened for use last Monday and a handful of local youths were there to lay down the first grooves in the pristine surface. It used to be tradition to wait until after Brigade Days before laying down the ice — but in recent years, the rec centre has been bringing the opening into mid-August, making it possible for the Hope and District Minor Hockey Association to start their practices a week after schools reopen. The early ice also gives kids a chance to test out their gear and see if it’s going to need replacement before the season begins. Hope Minor Hockey is helping in that regard, by holding an equipment swap and sale meet at the arena mezzanine on August 31 from 4:30-8:30 p.m. “If kids have outgrown their gear, they can bring it and trade it or sell it,” said the club’s new president, Pete Lang. “There’s no charge for participants.” Starting on August 27, the HDMHA is holding daily one-hour clinics — except for Wednesday when a special event is using the ice. “Hockey 1 to 4 will be working with Michelle Inancsi of the Hope Figure Skating Club,” said Lang. “Their focus will be on skating skills, in full hockey gear, with sticks. “Atoms and peewees and bantams and midgets will be working with Paul Nicolls of Chilliwack,” said Lang. “Paul is the owner of the Xceed Training Centre and he’s also the development coach for the Chilliwack Chiefs. Those kids will be drilled on hockey skills such as shoot-

to try out in a neighbouring association,” said Lang. “We’ll see who makes rep in Chilliwack,” he added. “They’ll still be welcome to take part in any mini-camps that we hold during the season. “Peewee currently has 24 skaters and two goalies signed up,” said the president. “At this point, this is barely enough for two teams, depending on how many kids make rep in Chilliwack. We would like to see a few more registered. Thirty skaters would be ideal. “Bantam has 13 skaters and one goalie, which is barely enough for one team,” figured Lang. “There is room for more there — and midget has 21 skaters and three goalies. This is a tough one. There are not enough for two teams — but too many for one. “We are currently only counting on one midget team, thus we are wait-listing players and goalies. If we can get some more players, we can ice two house teams and nobody will be wait-listed.” Lang noted that the league has voted to eliminate all body-checking from house or “C” hockey, so this may attract players back to the game. It will also be easier to attract Interior teams to tournaments, as they had earlier moved no body-checking. Lang is also open to icing a joint team with Chilliwack, if they end up with wait-listed players in certain divisions. “Especially if you live in Rosedale, you can be at the Hope rink in about the same time as it takes to get to Twin Rinks,” he noted. “And we don’t need to have morning practices.” Lang is looking forward to a successful season. “We’ve got a great new executive — though we’re very fortunate to have Jessie James and Lui Talarico staying on, as they have so much knowledge and experience.”

It is with profound sadness we announce the sudden passing of Frances MacDougall on August 14th, 2012 after a short illness. Born on February 29, 1932, Frances was predeceased by her mother and father, Ethel and Frank Kilbride. Frances leaves behind her husband Evan, son Peter (Rachel), daughter Laurie (Kindy), Evan’s daughters, Donna and Kyndree, her sisters, Joan, Shirley and Patricia, and grandchildren, Kyndree, Grant, Zoey, Caelee, Saje, Kiran, Samuel, Tavi, Ainav, and Maxwell, and great grandchildren Jake and Tao. Though her departure was unexpected, hers was a full life dedicated to family, friendship, community and teaching. She was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother, a lifelong teacher, and a compassionate, curious and enthusiastic person. Her passion and determination co-existed in equal measure and enabled her to achieve many successes and bear any burden. A celebration of her life will take place in Hope, BC on Thursday August 23rd, 2012 at 2pm at the Hope Golf Club. In lieu of flowers, you are invited to make a donation to the Grandmothers to Grandmothers Campaign at the Stephen Lewis Foundation.
