“We understand that there is going to be some cost involved, transit doesn’t fund itself and never does. We are going to have to get creative.” That could include partnering with transit and the Fraser Valley Regional District to help fund it. Mayor Johnston took the lead on the RCMP issue, asking the premier and Attorney General Sheila Bond, to help offset policing costs. Currently more than 25 per cent of Hope’s total budget goes to policing.

Johnston said while they were cordial and listened to her comments, no help was offered. She pointed out that communities of 5,000 or less do not pay anything for RCMP services and that Hope was only 1,300 people over that mark. A sliding payment scale was also suggested, but rejected. “We’re too small to be big and too big to be small,” said Johnston, adding they will have to keep trying to find other cost savings.

The last visible remains of the old Kawkawa bridge are being removed. On Friday, a construction crew began the difficult process of tearing down the final piles in the river bed that will close the last chapter on the old bridge. Made famous 30 years ago because of its high profile scene in the film First Blood, starring Sylvester Stallone, the bridge was eventually replaced last year and the old structure torn down. Howard Ratzlaff of HCR Environmental Consulting was on scene to ensure the final pieces were taken down correctly, without impacting the river. Large concrete blocks have been placed in the river to guide the water away from what remains of the structure. “We’re just trying to deflect the water, the current, around it so we can create a work site around the piles,” explained Ratzlaff. The piles are made of steel filled with concrete and have to be removed from the river-

Crews were busy diverting the water flow by the old Kawkawa bridge on Friday afternoon. The piles, all that is left of the historic landmark, are the last pieces being removed. Once completed, no part of the old bridge will be visible, although some portion will remain underneath the river bed.

bed up. The remainder of the piles will remain underground. “In order to remove them they have to cut the steel. In order to cut the steel they have to reduce the water around it.” The project is expected to take several days to complete.

A concrete block located between the piles also has to be destroyed and removed. Ratzlaff said the project has to be completed, to meet a previous agreement. “The removal of the bridge in its entirety was part of the approval from Fisheries

and Oceans in order to grant the approval to build the new bridge. So this is the last chunk of work.” The old structure also needs to be removed for the sake of natural river flow. “One of the aspects is it is a deterrent to the stream bed to be

able to move back and forth naturally. So it is a disturbance to flow.” He said the structure does prevent the river from creating natural eddies and pools. Ratzlaff said he is on hand to ensure no environmental concerns arise during the project.

As another season comes to a close for the Yale Historic Site, staff and volunteers are reflecting on the many successes of 2012. Site supervisor Deb Zervini said it was one of the busiest seasons in recent years. She gives a lot of the credit to the new Sasquatch exhibit, which attracted visitors from across the area, the Fraser Valley and the Lower Mainland. The exhibit featured everything from plaster foot casts to hair samples and other Sasquatch related items. The display was so popular that it has been extended until the end of

the 2013 season. But there is more to the Yale site than the legendary Bigfoot. “We still have all our other historical exhibits,” explained Zervini. The historic site is set to close on Oct. 14 and re-open in May of next year. By that time, several new displays may be ready. Thanks to provincial funding, two new tents are being set up as part of the Living History tent city. They will be a gold commissioner’s tent and a doctor/dentist/barber tent. “Barbers often took on the job of pulling teeth,” said Zervini, who added old dental tools will also be on display.

The annual Creepy Crawl is taking place Oct. 27 at the Yale Historic Site. The family-fun event includes a tour of the pioneer cemetery.

Other projects on the go include repairs and restoration to the exterior walls and windows of the Creighton House museum building and a large landscape restoration project complete with tree trimming, gardens, landscaping, new pathways and interpretive signage. The biggest project for the off-season is the Ward House building and grounds. The original house is undergoing a full conservation with the goal that it will be open to

the public next year. “We need to do this now, otherwise it may start to fall apart,” she said. The Ward House, also known as the Shilson House, was constructed in August of 1881. The heritage value of the residence was recognized by the provincial government, and working with the Yale and District Historical Society, a conservation/restoration project is under way. While the site is closing for the season spe-

cial events are still being planned. On Oct. 27 the public is invited to witness the return of the Creepy Crawl. The event is a Halloween-themed journey that allows people to view the old buildings by lantern light and enjoy a tour of the pioneer cemetery. Zervini said the tour also involves live theatre as performers will appear as the spirits of local pioneers. They will talk about their lives, and deaths to tour goers. Also on hand, during the pre-tour barbecued, will be members of the BC Ghost Hauntings Research Society who will be on hand to answer questions. Tickets for the event can be purchased through the Yale Historic Site, in Yale at Barry’s Trading Post or in Hope at Canyon Cable. For more information about the event, visit www.historicyale.ca.

REMEMBERING RAMBO

First Blood fans flock to Hope to help celebrate 30th anniversary of filming Kevin Mills Black Press

KEVIN MILLS / Black Press

Rambo fanatic Dave Dunham (above) dressed as his movie idol, Rambo, as part of the 30th anniversary celebration of the film First Blood which was shot in Hope. Hundreds of people came out for the weekend, which included an outdoor showing (below) of the film on a 40-foot screen.

Rambo fans arrived in Hope on the weekend to take part in the 30th anniversary celebration of the release of the film First Blood. Filmed in Hope, the movie has become a cult classic and has inspired several sequels. To mark the anniversary, a walking tour of filming locations, an outdoor viewing of the film on a 40-foot screen and lots of other Rambo-themed events were held. Dave Dunham travelled to Hope from Vancouver to take in the festivities. Dressed in the traditional Rambo costume, complete with headband, he calls himself a huge fan. “I drove all the way out here just for this, I’ve lost sleep because of this event, that’s how excited I am. It’s all I could think about. The 25-year-old Dunham said he fell in love with the film when he saw it as a youngster. “It’s an instant classic.” While Dunham made the trip from Vancouver, the distance pales in comparison to some other visitors. Rambo-maniacs have travelled from all over the world to take in the event, including Japan, England and Austria. “It was the first action film I ever saw,” explained Martin Krancinger who travelled from Austria to attend the weekend event. He saw the film when he was 12 years old with his father, and has been hooked ever since. “It’s my second time here,” he said, adding he was looking forward to the outdoor screening of the film. Mark Madryga, a meteorologist on Global TV was also on hand, along with his son. “The setting here in Hope is the big draw for us. Just the history of this being such a big deal, the whole movie crew and Stallone, who was very big at the time having just done several Rockys, descending on Hope and all the footage of Hope in the movie. “It’s just a neat thing that Hollywood came to town for a few months and shot a huge film,” Actor Stephen Chang returned to Hope to help with the celebration. An original member of the First Blood cast – he played the Vietnamese Commander – Chang was in Hope last year for the Kawkawa Bridge farewell party. He said he enjoys meeting with fans and

has always loved the area. He also said stars like Sylvester Stallone wouldn’t come out to this kind of event because they like their privacy. Chang said you could offer Stallone $10 million and he probably wouldn’t come. “So they are going to find a poor VC Commander which is myself,” he said with a laugh. A resident of Vancouver, Chang said he has also brought some Chinese investors with him to investigate business opportunities in the area. “I love Hope, because I had been teaching kung fu 35 years ago in Hope. I still have a couple of students here.” He said he has a very sentimental feeling about the city.

Even the Sasquatch came dressed as Rambo to help celebrate the movie.

“When I feel desperate, I come to Hope. Why? Because there’s hope,” he joked. Brian McKinney, one of the organizers of the event said the weekend went like clockwork as 100s of fans took in the sights. However, the beautiful sunshine was a bit of a downer. “The true First Blood fans weren’t impressed with the weather,” said McKinney. “They like dreary, low clouds and misty depressing weather - the same weather that provided that dark and gloomy set for the movie.” On Saturday night, when the movie was shown outdoors, an estimated crowd of between 600 to 1,000 watched at least part of the movie. McKinney called it a night to remember, as audience members shouted out their favourite lines. On Munday, the action shifted to Hell’s Gate where the annual Pumpkin drop – which was Rambo-themed this year – attracted 700 pumpkin tossers, many in costume. Even the Sasquatch came dressed as Rambo. After the event, an exhausted McKinney said fans were asking if a 35th anniversary was in the works? A question, he said, he’ll answer after he gets some much-needed sleep.

Published at Hope, Boston Bar, Yale and surrounding area by Black Press

Recalling meat Like a nasty computer virus, the XL Foods meat recall is casting a wider net and creating more problems as each day dawns. From the initial recall of beef processed by the Alberta plant between Aug. 24 and Sept. 5, the beef recall has now extended to thousands of stores. Hundreds of products from ground beef to prepared kebabs are on the do-noteat (or cook-’til-charred) list, even though more than a month has passed since problems were first detected. As many as 10 E. coli cases in Alberta, Quebec and Newfoundland were linked to beef products from the XL Foods plant, where E. coli was initially detected on Sept. 4, and now a B.C. man has been identified as recovering from the illness caused by eating beef processed at XL Foods. This makes the XL Foods beef recall a national issue requiring a thorough investigation if confidence in the Canadian food system is to be restored. While not deadly as the Walkerton tragedy, in which seven people died from drinking E. coli-contaminated water, many questions remain about who knew what and when — and what was done about it. The laxity of procedures at the plant and the length of time it took to identify the meat products affected could have put people’s lives in jeopardy. Initial stock-taking suggests some rigorous analysis of checks and re-checks of food processing systems at XL Foods is required. Other meat processing plants should be subject to review as well. This isn’t unnecessary red-tape and regulation; rather, it’s important for the industry to be able to guarantee that beef processed at plants is safe to eat. – Black Press

Skills training ‘our mission,’ Dix declares B.C. Views Tom Fletcher My column on skills training a couple of weeks ago gave short shrift to the NDP position: tax the banks and hand out grants for women’s studies, sociology and other worthless pursuits, while skilled jobs go begging. That’s a pretty crude caricature, so I sat down with NDP leader Adrian Dix in his legislature office last week to get a better sense of his thinking on the subject. Dix has been devoting a lot of time lately to skills training, in trades particularly. He meets frequently with business people now, and his recent speeches emphasize that every one of them

OFFICE HOURS Mon.-Wed. & Fri. 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

talks about the growing shortage of skilled employees. Dix credits Premier Christy Clark and jobs minister Pat Bell with making some good moves recently, announcing equipment upgrades for vocational programs around the province. He says it’s because the NDP have been “pounding away at them for eight months” about freezing advanced education spending in their March budget. Dix calls that a crucial mistake and predicts the government will reverse it soon. “So I think, if we’re going to have a mission for four years as a government, if we’re elected, this is the mission: to start to address the skills shortage,” he told me. In his speech to the recent municipal convention, and again at an NDP provincial council meeting, Dix zeroed in on B.C.’s apprenticeship system. Since the

Box 1090 Hope, B.C. VOX 1LO

B.C. Liberals took it from trade unions and set up a Crown corporation called the Industry Training Authority in 2004, the completion rate for apprentices has fallen to 37 per cent, he said. Dix assured me he isn’t proposing to “blow up” the ITA, or hand control back to unions. They will have “a voice,” along with business. Speaking to the NDP executive, Dix referred to Phil Hochstein, president of the non-union Independent Contractors and Businesses’ Association, as the symbol of trades training decline. Not surprisingly, Hochstein has a different take. The 37 per cent figure is misleading,  Hochstein said,  because under the ITA there are currently 32,000 apprentices in the system, twice as many as when it was union controlled. Many drop

out in the first year, and Alberta claims a better completion rate because they don’t start counting until the second year. And when Dix touts Alberta’s “mandatory” trade system, Hochstein said he means returning to a system where all work is restricted to journeymen or registered apprentices of that trade. “What it does is impose union jurisdiction on the training system of the entire construction industry,” Hochstein said. “So multi-skilling, multi-tasking, organizing the work in the most efficient way is blown out of the water, and it’s stuck in the old craft system of training.” The marketplace has spoken on that restrictive system, he said, and unionized construction is down to about five per cent of the market, based on payroll.

a great game about getting more young people into trades. But when unions have the upper hand, they will always favour seniority. A quota of two apprentices per journeyman means another one can’t be hired. Dix agreed with me that the public school system has overemphasized university, to the detriment of not just industrial trades but lab techs, chefs and other skilled workers that are in short supply. As B.C. Federation of Labour president Jim Sinclair recently noted, tradesmen themselves often don’t encourage their kids, because they’ve been told all their lives that they are “tool monkeys” in a dead-end job. And would NDP student grants be targeted to need? Dix’s answer was a definite maybe.

Each week I see a Question of the Week in this paper, seeking input from readers on topics that impact our community. I think the notion of gathering public opinion, feedback, and interest is valuable and I wonder whether or not the answers to these polls are statistically relevant. My curiosity led to further investigation and I found that your website displays the number of responses to each question. There I got the answer to my

question regarding statistical relevance, only 35 people responded to last week’s question re: the Rambo 30th Anniversary celebrations. Previous polls yielded similar results. I imagine that some of the objectives of the Question of the Week are to engage the community, gather opinions, gauge interest, and influence direction. I think these are meaningful objectives that have the potential to impact our community

in a positive way. What is absent is participation from the community. The question is why? Why is the response rate so low and what can be done about it? Without community input, the answers to the Question of the Week won’t serve to accomplish anything and thus they become irrelevant. All of this has me considering bigger questions like what will it take to create a tipping point within the community that ignites passion, purpose,

pride and prosperity? and how can we increase optimism and action around the incredible potential that exists here? This is a puzzle I think many people in this community, including me, would like to solve. Until we do, it will be exceedingly difficult to effect meaningful, sustainable change that results in the vibrant future that I and others see as possible. Solutions welcomed.   Michelle Richardson

Help celebrate Poor punished Co-op Week

Did you know that 18 million Canadians are a member of at least one of the 9,000 co-operatives across this country? In fact, many members themselves might not even realize that they belong to one. I’m hoping that we can change this during Co-op Week in Canada which runs from Oct. 14-20. This year’s celebration is especially significant since 2012 is the International Year of the Cooperative. The co-operative model has proved highly capable of meeting people’s needs where the private sector does not foresee a high return on equity. As UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has said, “co-operatives are a reminder to the international community that it is possible to pursue both economic viability and social responsibility.” Last Spring, as the Liberal Party’s new Advocate for Co-ops, I got Parliament to create a special co-operatives committee to study

the sector. We found that co-operatives, particularly new ones, have trouble accessing capital to expand and that governments can play an important role in bridging that gap. A little government funding can leverage big results in the co-op community. In 1986 the federal government provided $10 million to help capitalize the Arctic Co-operative Development Fund. Over the past 26 years it has advanced over $500 million in financing to Member Co-ops that built up essential services for northern communities, everything from delivering food and fuel to television broadcasting. I encourage everyone to participate in this year’s Co-op week by taking a close look at some of the co-operatives that serve their communities and perhaps even joining one. Honourable Mauril Bélanger, Liberal Advocate for Co-operative

Last spring when the Conservative government announced changes to a program that allows people to work part-time while they are receiving Employment Insurance (EI), it seemed like an improvement. Well, as usual the devil is in the details. The changes actually punish low-income Canadians by clawing back 50 per cent of the very first dollar an EI recipient makes. Until now, an allowable earnings provision let people earn and keep up to 40 per cent of their weekly EI benefit, giving them an incentive to work more. For example, if Kenny Gettabreak is receiving a $400 weekly EI benefit, he could earn and keep $160. The Conservatives claim the new Working While on Claim program allows “claimants to keep more of what they earn,” yet they conveniently forget to mention that it eliminated the allowable earnings provision. While Kenny Gettabreak used to be able to keep the full $160 of earnings, now he only gets $80 since 50 per cent of it is clawed-back. They are forcing people in low-paying jobs or who only work a few hours a week to do with less. Since Parliament resumed this fall, the Liberal Party has been demanding that Minister Finley reinstate the allowable earning provision. Not only is she unwilling to do so, she is unwilling to even admit that low-income Canadians are being penalized. Knowing the dogma of this Conservative government, either they believe people working part-time are too lazy to work more, or it is just another hidden measure to force people to move out of our small communities. Either way, it is a punitive new program for low-income Canadians.   Rodger Cuzner, MP Liberal Critic for Human Resources & Skills Development

‘Every home’ needs a fire alarm: DeSorcy Hope Fire Chief said awareness campaign designed to educate the public

Fire Prevention Week takes place from Oct. 7 to Oct. 13. The theme for this year is “Have Two Ways Out.” Fire Prevention Week is recognized every October during the full week – Sunday through Saturday – that Oct. 7 falls on. Despite the fact that fewer fire losses are reported in Canada, still, on average, eight Canadians die from fire every week. Most of these fires are preventable and caused by careless behaviour. That is why it is critical to educate Canadians and incite them to act. During this week, fire departments across the nation will promote public awareness of the dangers of fire and the ways we can

protect ourselves from fire. To this point, Fire Prevention Canada’s newly revamped website contains fire prevention and educat i on a l material. It is designed for the public to consult at, w w w. DESORCY fiprecan.ca. Hope Fire Chief Tom DeSorcy said it is vital for people to check their smoke alarms, not just the battery, but the age. “If your smoke alarm is 10 years or older, it needs to be replaced,” he said. DeSorcy said the Fire

Chiefs’ Association of B.C. is mounting a campaign to educate people about the need for up-to-date, working smoke detectors. In fact, Oct. 12, 2012 is going to be proclaimed Smoke Alarm Awareness Day in B.C. Other emergency personnel, including police and ambulance services, are being asked, when they attend a call, to check for smoke alarms explained DeSorcy. “It’s our objective to make sure every home has a working smoke alarm.” The District of Hope volunteer fire department was created in 1999. Today there are three MIKE BARKER / Submitted photo fire halls serving the municipality and surrounding A motor home caught fire at about 5:15 p.m. om Monday, Oct. 1 at the Hunter Creek rest area.

Smoke alarms reduce fire fatalities

Research reveals a strong link between working smoke alarms and reduced fatalities from residential structure fires. A study of almost 50,000 fires in Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario from October 2006 to 2011 showed: • The death rate per 1,000 fires was 74 per cent greater when a working smoke alarm was not present than when one was present. • Greater risk of fatality from residential structure

fires for households with at least one young child, older adult, or person with disability; rental units; and households in low-income areas, rural communities and First Nations reserves. • Fire damage was reduced by 19 per cent when a working smoke alarm was present. Given that these three provinces are home to 62 per cent of all Canadians, it was extrapolated that 69 deaths (a decrease of 32 per cent)

could be prevented each year if all Canadian homes had working smoke alarms. Smoke alarm legislation varies from province to province. Since mid-2010, the B.C. Fire Code has required all homes, hotel and motel rooms have a working smoke alarm (battery-operated or hard-wired). However, this is not systematically enforced on residential properties.    Smoke alarm function is another challenge. Models

with removable batteries can be easily disabled during cooking, and also require the occupant to be diligent about replacing batteries at regular intervals. While this problem is addressed by hard-wired and long-life lithium battery models, their seemingly “care-free” status may result in neglected maintenance. A coordinated, sustained and multi-faceted approach – consisting of education, enforcement and changes

to the environment – is required to ensure every Canadian home has a working smoke alarm. B.C.’s Office of the Fire Commissioner and the Fire Chiefs’ Association of BC, with assistance from the Surrey Fire Service and other champions, are spearheading a local, provincial and national movement in 2012 to achieve this goal. Research performed by the University of the Fraser Valley, with help from Fra-

ser Valley based fire departments, found that: • On average, 35 people died in structure fires in B.C. each year between 2006 and 2011. • Working smoke alarms could reduce annual fire deaths by as much as 32 per cent. Data from the Office of the Fire Commissioner shows nearly 70 per cent of the fire scenes examined between 2006 and 2011 had no functioning smoke alarm.

As most Canadians turn back the clocks on November 4, here are some timely smoke and carbon monoxide (CO) safety tips: • When you change your clocks, test your smoke arlam. • You have less than three minutes to escape a fire. So when smoke alarms sound, everyone must know what to do and where to go. Having and practising an escape plan is essential. • Install one smoke alarm on every storey and outside bedrooms. Install inside bedrooms if you sleep with doors closed. • Ensure all smoke alarms are fully powered. Never take out batteries or remove an alarm from ceiling due to a false alarm. • If your home has any fuel-burning devices such as a gas furnace, gas water heater, gas appliances, or an attached garage or carport, install at least one CSAapproved carbon monoxide outside all sleeping areas. One per storey is recommended.

• Replace smoke alarms every 10 years, and CO alarms every 7-10 years (depending on manufacturer) whether battery operated or hardwired into your home’s electrical system. Carbon monoxide is colourless, odourless and tasteless. So without a CO alarm, humans cannot detect its presence. Despite the average home having several potential sources of the deadly gas, studies show that nearly 60 per cent of Canadians have not installed a CO alarm. In addition to being impossible to detect, CO also has another nefarious trait. Symptoms of carbon monoxide exposure mimic the flu, without the fever. It is routinely responsible for thousands of clinic and hospital visits each year, and is commonly misdiagnosed. Prolonged or extreme exposure causes nausea, dizziness, confusion, the loss of physical mobility, brain damage and ultimately, death. More home safety resources can be found on the www. safeathome.ca web site.

Analysis was undertaken on almost 50,000 fires that occurred in Alberta, British Columbia, and Ontario over a 5-year period involving 663 fatalities. The findings demonstrated that the death rate per 1,000 fires in the absence of a present, functioning smoke alarm was 74% greater than when a functioning smoke alarm was present.

In case of fire - GET OUT AND STAY OUT – never go back into a burning building • Crawl low near the floor to the nearest exit maintaining contact with the wall. • Test the door by feeling it with the back of your hand. If it is hot, do not open. Use an alternative route. • If the door and knob are cool, stay low with your shoulder against the door while opening slowly. Be ready to close the door if smoke and heat rush in. • If trapped, put as many

closed doors as possible between you and the fire, and seal all cracks in doors and windows with towels or bedding. • If your clothing catches fire, stop where you are, drop gently to the ground and cover your face with your hands while rolling back-and-forth to put out the flames. • Cool minor burns with cold water.

Many fatal fires start at night Investigations into home fire deaths very often find that a smoke alarm did not sound. It may have been disconnected or not in working order. The batteries may have been dead, or someone may have taken them out. Smoke alone won’t necessarily wake you up. In fact, the fumes could put you into an even deeper sleep. Often, victims never wake up. Se-

niors will often need assistance from family members to put safety measures into place. As well, family members are in the best position to reinforce the precautions necessary to help their loved ones prevent or respond to a fire. Focus on these six priorities to help aging family members protect themselves against fire in the home.

■ INSTALL smoke alarms inside every bedroom, outside each sleeping area and on every level of the home, including the basement. ■ Larger homes may need ADDITIONAL smoke alarms to provide enough protection. ■ For the best protection, INTERCONNECT all smoke alarms so when one sounds they all sound. ■ An IONIZATION smoke alarm is generally more responsive to flaming fires and a PHOTOELECTRIC smoke alarm is generally more responsive to smoldering fires. For the best protection, both types of alarms or combination ionization and photoelectric alarms (also known as dual sensor alarms) are recommended. ■ Smoke alarms should be INSTALLED away from the kitchen to prevent false alarms. Generally, they should be at least 10 feet (3 meters) from a cooking appliance. ■ REPLACE all smoke alarms when they are 10 years old.

Halloween and magic go hand in hand and on Oct. 25, Hope residents should be prepared to be amazed as magician John Kaplan presents

his Stage Fright showcase. The fundraising event is being put on by the Hope Mountain Black Bear Committee and proceeds go to support the volunteer work the organization performs.

Lydia Koot, chair of the organization has worked with Kaplan before and realized it would be a great way to entertain people while still raising money for a good cause. “It’s a Halloween fam-

Ever wondered what life was like in the Fraser Canyon 200 year ago? If you want to experience it, you should plan to visit the Tuckkwiowhum Heritage Interpretive Village in Boston Bar. “Tuckkwiowhum means good berry picking place in the Nlaka’pamux language,” explained Crystal Kimber, administrative assistant with Boston Bar First Nation. The village is built on the original site of an Aboriginal settlement that has been there for thousands of years. “As far as history goes, the white man only really showed up here 200 years ago. So who knows how long people have

determine what the target audience would be. School trips have proven popular, as have visits from local dignitaries and residents. Now that the word has spread, visitors from overseas are coming to the site. “It seems that Europeans are extremely interested in having an authentic adventure. They don’t want it packaged in this shiny package. They want something where they can get their hands dirty, they want to see the actual sights and the actual ruins,” said Kimber. Guided tours are provided on the site, or people can choose to walk on their on. For more information call 604867-8844 or visit www. tuckkwiowhum.com.

ily magic show,” she said. “I’ve seen his other shows so I’m very curious to see his Halloween show.” According to Koot, as part of the production, Kaplan often takes kids and adults from the au-

dience to come on stage and assist in the illusions. The show takes place Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. in the Hope Secondary School gymnasium. Tickets, purchased before Oct. 11 are $10 for adults, $8 for students or $30 for a family of four. After Oct. 11 the price is $12 for adults and $10 for students. Tickets are available at the Hope Vet Clinic, the Blue Moose, Pharmasave, Hub International or by calling 604-869-4558. Along with the show, a raffle will take place for some great prizes. Tickets will be sold at the show with 12 winners selected. Each winner will receive a key. One of the keys will open a “spooky coffin” filled with prizes. “It’s just another fun way to raise funds,” said Koot. There is also a guillotine trick as part of the show. People from the community (teachers, business people and even municipal politicians) are being challenged to collect pledges ahead of time. Whoever gets the most money in pledges, will take part in the “head removing” illusion. Also, don’t forget to check out the coloring contest inside today’s edition of the Hope Standard. All proceeds go towards the black bear committee which was started last year. Koot started the program after a huge “increase of bear calls” coming into the conservation office.

ZALE KEENAN ROCKEL  

HELP WANTED ALL SPORTS MINDED!!

August 20, 1968 – October 1, 2012  We the families of Zale Rockel ( Beans, Unca, Big Guy) are deeply saddened to announce his sudden unexpected death due to heart complications on October 1st, 2012 in Fort McMurray, Alberta. Words cannot express all that Zale meant to so many and the void that remains with his passing, but none greater than that to his two shining stars, his daughter Brianna ( Tiffany) and son Cody. Zale also leaves to mourn his Mom ( Grandma) and Dad ( Steamer). Zale is survived by his sisters Lorelie (Dave); Kelly (Ross); Ronalda (Wayne) and numerous nieces and nephews. Also left to miss his exuberance and laughter are his very special Auntie Lee and Uncle Bob along with Uncle Keith and Aunt Evelyn. Although Zale leaves us, his family and friends, saddened and longing for his company, our hearts are lifted knowing he joins his brothers,  Keith and Ray and his beloved Bebo along with his grandparents, aunts and uncles and buddies who left before him. Special mention goes out to Zale’s extended Chilliwack family and especially to Clayton Eheler, Zale’s buddy and soul brother. Your ongoing loyalty and friendship to Zale and kindness and concern for family will not be forgotten.  Those whose life Zale touched will remember and reflect upon his larger than life personality, his generosity and kindness and never ending sense of humour. Anyone fortunate enough to have received a hug from Zale know that his hugs, embody the phrase “bear hug�. Zale took great pride in being his own person and living life, his own way; Get R done! To say that Zale will be missed is an understatement; our lives without him will never be the same. A Celebration of Life for Zale will be held Saturday, October 13th at the Yale First Nations Band office at 1 pm. Luncheon to follow at the Yale Community Centre ( old Yale School). Zale was a casual laid back guy who appreciated a great saying on a tee shirt and enjoyed being comfortable; please feel free to dress casual. As the moon lingers a moment over the bitterroots, before it’s descent into the invisible,my mind is filled with song. I find I am humming softly; not to the music, but something else; some place else; a place remembered; a field of grass where no one seemed to have been; except a deer; and the memory is strengthened by the feeling of you.
