Local pharmacy offers shingles vaccine

Hope Standard

Hope Pharmasave is now certified to administer shingles vaccinations. A growing number of cases in the community recently prompted pharmacist Michael McLouglin to seek out relief for his patients. The relatively new Zostavax vaccine decreases the likelihood of getting shingles and reduces the severity of long-term pain if it does occur. “When people do get their at-

Some extended medical plans will also cover the expense. For more information on Shingles or the vaccine, visit Hope Pharmasave or set up an appointment with a pharmacist.

Community recognizes local business sector

Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

The Business Excellence Awards was once again a popular event, with about 120 people attending the gala last Thursday. Presented by the Hope & District Chamber of Commerce, the evening gives residents an opportunity to acknowledge the contributions individuals and businesses make in improving the quality of life in Hope. “From the tourism industry to trades, I believe this year’s event showcased businesses that are willing to go the extra mile in providing great customer service to their clients,” said Chamber president Glen Ogren. “This year we saw nominees who are long-time residents of Hope and businesses that have moved back to the community being celebrated.” Guests were treated to a buffet dinner by Lori’s Catering and a concert with Adam Fitzpatrick, who entertained the crowd with Elvis hits from the ’50s, ’60s and ’70s. The winner of the 2012 Established Business of the Year Award went to Cooper’s Foods and was presented to store manager Jeff Lebsack. Aside from friendly customer service and knowledgeable staff, the company was recognized for supporting numerous school and community events. Other award recipients include: q The Purple Fern Bodywork & Massage - New Business of the Year q Envision Financial - Business Leader of the Year q Coquihalla Veterinary Services - Professional Services

Property crimes down in Hope

Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

Property crimes have dropped about 46 per cent in this year, according to the latest statistics released by the RCMP. There were 159 incidents from January to September, compared to 297 over the same period last year. “It’s very encouraging, especially for the officers involved in the day-to-day work,” said Staff Sgt. Suki Manj. “It’s a good feeling for them to look and see

they’re making a dent.” He attributes the reduction in property crimes not only to the efforts of his members, the but to greater public participation. “People are better educated on how to keep themselves from being victimized,” said Manj. “Our message is consistent with getting the public involved and having them be part of the solution as well. Every piece of information is valuable to us and as you can see it does

result in ultimately reducing the crime.” The prolific offender and social chronic programs have also helped put pressure on criminals and connect them with community supports, he added. Auto theft is down 52 per cent this year, from 42 to 20, while theft from vehicles has decreased 59 per cent to 62 from 151. Residential break and enters fell 37 per cent to 40, while break and enters to sheds and detached garages dropped

38 per cent to 18. Business break and enters have jumped slightly this year to 19, from 12 in 2011. Manj attributes this increase to a couple people who were arrested earlier this year, noting that numbers have since returned to normal. “The statistics prove that our policing is adequate or more than adequate,” said Mayor Susan Johnston. “To have it looking so good is pretty phenomenal at this stage.”

Scout leader receives service award

Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

Crystal Medlock has been recognized for her commitment to Hope Scouts. Area commissioner Jane Riddell presented her with the Medal of Good Service on Monday night, which is given to leaders within Scouting who have gone above and beyond “the faithful performance of ordinary duties.” Medlock was given a certificate, medal and flash for her uniform. “I keep thinking the real reward in being a part of Scouting over the years has been the adventures with the youth and all the happiness and laughter that results,” said Medlock. “But to receive this is such

an honor and I am very thankful to those who were involved in this wonderful surprise. I can not wait to pay it forward in the future to the other adults in our community who give of their time and evenings to put on such a great program. Everything we do in Scouting is for the betterment of the community and the kids are the ones we are doing it for.” Medlock was instrumental in starting the Scout group in Hope five years ago, and has since played an important role in its continued success. Fellow leader Shanon Fischer said in the award application, “while we have a lot of great leaders, I don’t think we would be where we are without Crystal Medlock!”

As cool weather sets in, homeowners are reminded to make sure their chimneys are cleaned and inspected. That’s the message local firefighters are spreading this week, after crews tackled a blaze in the 63000 block of Airport Rd. last Friday at about 2 p.m. The owner returned home after a short period away to find smoke billowing from the roof.

Crystal Medlock, left, received the Medal of Good Service on Monday night from Scout area commissioner Jane Riddell.

“It appears at this point the fire began in the chimney and extended into the walls and then into the ceiling,” said fire chief Tom DeSorcy. “We managed to stop it there, but there was still some fairly extensive damage. One room is pretty much destroyed, plus there’s smoke and water damage on both floors.” Chimney fires are typically caused by the combustion of

cooled residue deposits known as creosote. If there are cracks in a chimney, creosote can spread beyond the flue and into the framework. To help minimize creosote buildup, DeSorcy recommends burning dry wood. “Damp or unseasoned wood will not burn as hot and will also leave more residue and cause problems,” he said.

Jamie Davis and his heavy rescue crew have become household names with the success of Highway Thru Hell. The eight-part television series, which had the highest premiere audience in Discovery Channel history, followed the team as they worked to keep the local highways open for truckers last winter under unpredictable conditions. “I’m a bit shocked at how popular the show is,” said Davis. “I’m really taken by how many people come up and talk to me and want posters. We drove to Castlegar on the weekend and every time we stopped, one thing I was impressed with was people were bringing their kids to see us. There’s a lot of kids watching this show, which was something I didn’t realize.” One of the main stars of the series is the Coquihalla Highway,

West complains about his prison conditions Vikki Hopes Black Press

Jesse Blue West told investigators in 2007 that he was suffering more than the families of his alleged victims. “They don’t have any more heartache than I do. I can guarantee that,” he told Det. Brian Kwak and Cpl. Bob Page during an interview recorded at North Fraser Pretrial Centre in Port Coquitlam on April 3, 2007.  The tape was played last Wednesday in B.C. Supreme Court in Chilliwack as part of West’s trial for the first-degree murder of 14-year-old Chelsey Acorn of Abbotsford. It was recorded after West asked to talk to investigators about other homicides.  The first portion of the fourhour interview was played Tuesday, when West said, “I can give you three bodies,” which Kwak interpreted to mean three other victims, in addition to Acorn. In last week’s recording, West, now 61, clarifies that he meant three victims, including Acorn. But he refuses to provide the names or any other details of the other two victims unless his terms are meant. These demands include being moved from “the hole” – prison segregation – where he says he is suffering “cruel and unusual punishment.” “(They are) a bunch of drugaddicted people that are just disgusting … Some of them shouldn’t even be in prison; they

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

Armed for the Internet

The international outpouring of shock, disbelief and grief at Amanda Todd’s death tells us much about how we use social media to connect and how little we understand the consequences of using it. It’s clear the worldwide web has opened up a Pandora’s Box of issues among our young people, but when adults freely give up their privacy to a company that harvests their personal details for profit, it’s hard to expect children to know any better. This is not a case for shutting down the Internet – as impossible a task as stopping the tides – for the instant knowledge and communication it offers is a huge benefit; nor is it a call to put more rules or laws in place to stop pornography, bullying, the distribution of hate messages and other horrible attributes of anonymous, instant and pervasive communication. Anti-bullying, child pornography and hate laws backed by enforcement obviously need to be in place but the problem of child victimization isn’t easily stopped. The more walls that are erected, the more fun the challenge is for hackers and haters, the malware makers, the virus-mongers, the attention-seekers and the sexually perverse. It’s an endless game of whack-a-mole, with solutions always just out of reach and more children at risk every day. It’s better to inoculate children against victimization so they can be more proactive about their own safety. Get them at school, in the home, at church and in the community centre. Children as young as five need to know how the Internet works. They need to know what risky behaviour is and the consequences of it. They need to know when online teasing becomes bullying, the difference between strangers and friends; and who to go to if they are being bullied. – Black Press

Attack of the American celebrities

B.C. Views

Tom Fletcher There was palpable disappointment among reporters when Greenpeace organizers clarified that U.S. actors Daryl Hannah and Mark Ruffalo weren’t actually going to join the sit-in against heavy oil pipeline proposals at the B.C. legislature on Monday. I was disappointed too. I would have liked to learn more about what a washed-up mermaid and an easily confused Incredible Hulk really believe about the North American oil industry. In the spirit of celebrity slacktivism, both sent statements of support. To be fair, Ruffalo may still be busy searching for the “truth” about 9-11. In 2007 he declared that the official U.S. government report on

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

the terrorist attacks was “completely illegitimate” because “buildings don’t fall down like that.” I wonder what the relatives of those aboard the hijacked airliners think of him. Hannah has had lots of free time since starring in the 1984 mermaid fantasy Splash. Now she’s mostly famous for getting arrested, and she did so again in Texas on Oct. 3, standing in front of earthmoving equipment building the southern section of the Keystone XL pipeline. It’s worth noting that the project Hannah tried to stop has the support of the Barack Obama administration. The southern section from Cushing, Oklahoma oil storage facilities to Texas refineries is indeed being built by the sinister foreign TransCanada Corp., but it doesn’t carry the dreaded Canadian “tar sands” oil that eco-celebrities are convinced will end life on Earth as we know it. It’s the northern section that

Obama has temporarily opposed, after fervent demonstrations such as the one in Washington DC where Hannah’s first celebrity arrest occurred in 2011. At that time, Hannah recited the familiar talking points of the U.S. environmentalists who exclusively target Alberta. In a new book, oil sands pioneer and Suncor founder

“My point here isn’t to make fun of ill-informed celebrities.” Rick George dissects Hannah’s claims, and asks why they were reported so widely and uncritically. Hannah claimed “the contribution to the carbon in the atmosphere is unprecedented.” George cites a Royal Society of Canada report that concludes the entire oil sands operation is responsible

for five per cent of Canadian emissions. Fossil-fuelled electricity generation is 16 per cent of Canada’s total. Vehicles and other transportation account for 27 per cent. “How does the oil sands contribution possibly qualify as unprecedented?” George asks. Another Hannah quote: “I’ve been hearing about how many people have cancer that live downstream from the tar sands project.” Canadians heard that too, thanks in large part to an alarmist CBC documentary by David Suzuki featuring jet-set movie director James Cameron. George describes how this allegation was made in 2006 by a doctor who claimed a cluster of rare bile cancer cases in the remote village of Fort Chipewyan, and blamed it on oil sands mining. Headlines blared around the world. George details the Alberta Health Services study that followed, identifying three such cases in 12 years.

Statistically higher, yes. A general risk, no. Other types of cancer in Fort Chip were lower than the general population. This finding was endorsed by Australian, New Zealand, U.S. and Canadian researchers. The doctor who diagnosed the original bile cancers admitted: “These results were based on a small number of cases – there is no cause for alarm.” Was this news trumpeted around the world?

• Art Brooks (North Bend) for donating the new gravel for the display • Cliff Fisher (North Bend) for all his time and materials used for the removal of the memorial plaque from the broken water fountain, and materials used to secure the memorial plaque on to the rock, as well as for making all the arrangements with the companies and employees to complete the project in time for Remembrance Day 2012 In 2011, Hope Signs put together the first half of our project, one sign listing all the men and women who served in military from our area, and all the volunteers who served as Pacific Coast Militia Rangers in North Bend and Boston Bar. This will be our fourth year that we have held the Remembrance Day service in this area. Joan Blakeborough

and today it is still remembered. I have written and produced a song in memory of Amanda Todd which I hope to be played frequently to remind bullies of her tragedy. My YouTube link is The song is sung from what I think Amanda must have felt like and the action of taking her life into her own hands, and then ends with questioning the bullies about how they feel. I used to live in Maple Ridge and the topic is dear to me as it is my old home town. I am very passionate about anti-bullying and really hope that you will comment on this song for Amanda and her parents. My heart goes out to Amanda’s parents and I want them to know that she did not die in vain and I am truly hoping the song will make people think before they ever bully again. Leah de Zeeuw

Local retail staff will be missed

Two of my favourite retail people are leaving Hope. Irene at Caswell Interiors - our wonderful Hope furniture store has given me some great deals and is the consummate retailer, professional yet kind and personable. Many who pop in for a look and a chat will miss her dearly. Irene was one of the very first people I met after retiring to Hope a few years ago. She graciously offers information and time never seems to be a problem. “Customers come first”, is her motto. Irene creates a beautiful environment in

Caswell’s. Top marks for decorating! She will be moving to another province to be with family and I wish her all the best in her new position. The other person I will miss is the English butcher at Buy & Save (don’t know his name), whose cheery

helpful manner is much appreciated. He too leaves for another province to be with family and will be missed. Thank you Irene and the butcher at Buy & Save for your consistent, professional manner from many customers! Ruth Renwick


The Remembrance Day monument project for Boston Bar and North Bend is now complete.

Many people here are unaware that there is another Anglican church in Hope. In 2006, when the Anglican Church of Canada was straying from gospel teaching and the roots of Anglicanism in Canada, a group of traditional Anglicans departed and started the Anglican Church of the Resurrection, now situated at 345 Raab Street, just over the tracks from Grace Baptist Church. The Anglican Church of the Resurrection was the first church in the new-

ly-formed Anglican Network in Canada, comprised of Anglican congregations across the nation that wanted to keep their traditional roots. We share a building with Webco Industries and AdvantageHOPE. We meet on Sundays for worship at 10 a.m., and twice a month, we have Deacon (Reverend) Don Gardner come to Hope to lead our services. We meet at the church each Sunday night at 6 p.m. for Bible study, and each month, our Deacon leads a service at Fra-

Stand up against bullying The “other” Anglican church

I am a 14-year-old girl from Kamloops and became inspired to do more after I saw Premier Christy Clark at  “We Day” and how she spoke about standing up against bullying.  I  want to do more and I want Amanda Todd to be remembered everyday, not just today.  I want  bullies to be reminded frequently and I do not want them to escape her message. Premier Christy Clark has challenged me to stand up. Well today I am standing up strong and proud for Amanda and for all those that are bullied.  I will not rest and I will  be relentless in my pursuit to carry her message. The Boomtown Rats wrote and produced an epic song about  the shooting spree of 16-year-old Brenda Ann Spencer, who fired at children in a school playground at Grover Cleveland Elementary School in San Diego, California on January 29, 1979. That song was written over 33 years ago

Protesters denounce pipeline expansion Tom Fletcher Black Press

More than 2,000 protesters gathered on the B.C. legislature lawn Monday, some promising to provoke arrests as well as criticizing proposed heavy oil pipelines from Alberta to the B.C. coast. Organizers offered training in civil disobedience techniques to the more than 1,000 people who signed up for the protest, under the banner of Defend Our Coast. Sponsored by Greenpeace and the Council of Canadians, the coalition includes unions, aboriginal leaders and environmental organizations. Victoria Police were out in force to back up legislature security, who locked the buildings down and turned away visitors for the day. The protest focused on two proposed projects, Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline from northern Alberta to Kitimat and the pending ap-

Among the speakers was David Coles, president of the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union. He said his union is “diametrically opposed” to pipeline expansion, despite the fact it represents employees at the Chevron refinery in Burnaby that is supplied by the Trans Mountain oil pipeline

from Alberta. The new proposals are “job killers” because more diluted bitumen from the Alberta oil sands will be shipped out raw, either from Burnaby or Kitimat, Coles said. Protesters ringed the crowd with sections of black banner described as being the length of an oil tanker, and staked it to the legislature lawn. That is technically a violation of legislature rules, which are aimed at preventing people from setting up tents and other structures

on the lawn. Art Sterritt, executive director of the Coastal First Nations group on B.C.’s North Coast, said the protest is designed to show Prime Minister Stephen Harper and Premier Christy Clark that people are prepared to “stand in front of the bulldozers” to stop the projects. Other speakers included federal Green Party leader Elizabeth May and B.C. Teachers’ Federation president Susan Lambert. Maude Barlow, national chair of the Council of Canadians, called for opposition to gas pipelines and liquefied natural gas exports from northern B.C. as well. Supporters of the oil sands protest include Simon Fraser University professor Mark Jaccard, former United Nations ambassador Stephen Lewis and U.S. environmentalist Bill McKibben, a leading campaigner for reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

tant wireless services are, and continue to make significant investments in our networks to bring them to our customers traveling the Crowsnest Highway and right across Canada,” said Steve Jenkins, general manager for the Southern Interior. “Our significant investment in a site serving Highway 3 gives motorists, as well as area residents and businesses, the convenience of making hands-free wireless calls

along a well-travelled stretch highway, expands access to 911, and allows for great broadband service where it may not be possible to build wired Internet access.” The project is part of a $3 billion 10-year Connecting British Columbia agreement signed with the province last year. Under the terms of the contract, Telus will connect more than 1,700 kilometres of highway with wireless service by 2014.

Premier Christy Clark announced a review of teacher bargaining last Wednesday, with a goal of reaching a 10-year agreement that would put an end to decades of battles with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. Clark and Education Minister Don McRae acknowledged at a Vancouver news conference that changing the culture of confrontation between the B.C. government and teachers won’t be easy, and vowed to put even the most contentious issues on the table for discussion. That includes class size and special needs support, key issues in contract disputes and court actions in recent years. “Our first goal is long-term labour stability with teachers in British Columbia,” Clark said. “Our second goal is to improve how government interacts and works with the BCTF. These two goals will require compromise on all sides of the table, including ours.” BCTF president Susan Lambert said she welcomes the review of the bargaining structure, but is skeptical about the latest promise of meaningful consultation. “It seems to me that talk of a 10year contract is putting the cart before the horse,” Lambert said. “There seem to be conclusions

drawn that would be properly a product of the bargaining table and not a product of a discussion on the bargaining structure.” The offer comes as the BCTF continued a court challenge to a two-year wage freeze that extends until June 2013. After a year of fruitless negotiations and work-torule by teachers, the union membership endorsed the two-year contract extension reached in June with government-imposed mediator Charles Jago. McRae said the review will take advantage of work currently being done by a task force of school trustees, and two previous reviews completed by independent mediators. In his 2007 report, mediator Vince Ready said the union and the province’s bargaining agent, the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association, need a system for agreeing on the financial costs of various proposals before they can hope to settle contracts. McRae said he has talked with Lambert about the proposal, and he wants to have consultations with teachers, trustees, parent advisory councils and administrators complete by the end of November. “If there are policy changes or legislative amendments that we need to make, we want to get this work done before bargaining resumes next spring,” McRae said.

Halloween safety a priority

With Halloween fast approaching, Hope RCMP and Victim Services have some safety tips for families to keep in mind before taking part in festivities.

Around the house: q Many people enjoy transforming their homes into eerie scenes. Be sure to keep the path leading up to your door free of obstacles for the little ones, especially those with masks and limited vision. q Keep pets indoors on Halloween to protect them from hazards and to protect “trick or treaters.” q Before you light candles in your pumpkin, consider using safety glow sticks. Nothing says creepy like a glowing jack-olantern. Costumes: q Wear a light-coloured or bright costume, reflective tape or arm bands to heighten visibility. q Wear a costume that is properly fitted to reduce the chance of tripping on it. q Select a costume that is constructed from flame-retardant materials. q Make sure your vision is not restricted. Consider complet-

ing your costume with make-up rather than masks. Masks may require that the eye-holes be cut larger for the sake of good peripheral vision. q Shoes should fit properly even if they do not go well with a costume. q If a child’s costume requires the use of props, such as a flexible-plastic sword, make sure the sharp tip is cut or filed round. q Glow sticks are also an excellent method to increase a child’s visibility. You might want to consider creating a fun necklace with string to ensure they will want to wear as part of their costumes. q Accessorize with a flashlight.

establish an agreed upon curfew. q Teach your children to recognize the places along his/her route where they can obtain help: police station, fire hall or any other well indicated public place. q Stay on the sidewalks (If there is no sidewalk, walk on the left-hand side of the street facing traffic). q Don’t jaywalk. q Stop and check for cars before crossing the street.

Talk about being “street smart” before your children go out: q Before the kids hit the streets, it is important that parents be aware of the route that their children plan to follow. q If you are unable to take them out yourself, consider asking another parent, an older sibling or babysitter to do the honours for you. q Ensuring your child is wearing a watch also allows you to

Fireworks: q Please be aware that in many B.C. communities, the use of fireworks is strictly prohibited by law. q Each and every Halloween, hospital emergency rooms prepare for an influx of children and adults with firework-associated injuries. q Parents are urged to be alert to the many dangers posed to young people who are allowed to use fireworks at Halloween.

Bring your treats home: q Although tampering of loot is rare, remind children that they must have their candy inspected by their parents or guardian prior to eating them.

Hope is going country Kerrie-Ann Schoenit

It’s time to dust off your cowboy boots and get ready to two-step. Aaron Halliday is bringing the music of country legend Alan Jackson to the Eagles hall this Saturday for a special tribute concert. “The show is very much like an Alan Jackson concert, but with a very personal and interactive side,” said Halliday. “I want the audience to feel like they are a part of the show, not just attendees. There will be songs that make you ‘Remember When’ life was simple as well as the ‘Good Times’ and everything in between.” Born and raised in Nova Scotia before moving to B.C., Halliday grew up surrounded with old country values and a love for music. In his early career, he performed in the band Two Much Trouble with Dave Leake and shared the stage with artists such as Jason McCoy, Beverly Mahood and Chris Cummings.

After the duo parted ways 10 years ago, a number of friends and fans commented on Halliday’s similarity to Alan Jackson, inspiring him to start working on his tribute show Almost Alan. “Outside of the appearance and sound, I like the down home, real life values that surround Alan and that is who I truly am which makes it even easier to be myself while paying tribute to him,” he said. “This will not be a flashy show but it is the type of show that will leave you wanting to know more about Alan Jackson and have a greater appreciation of his song writing.” In addition to showcasing Jackson’s music, Halliday will perform hits from other artists like Dwight Yoakum, Garth Brooks, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard. The concert starts at 8 p.m. on Oct. 27 at the Eagles hall, which is located at 386 Fort St. Tickets are $10 per person. For more information, call 604869-5430 or 604-869-2560.

Researchers are giving new hope to local families coping with Alzheimer’s and other dementias. Already one in 11 Canadians over 65 lives with the diseases, and since age is the highest risk factor, that number is expected to soar as the population continues to get older. Advances in research are offering new reasons for optimism, though, including new tools that may allow doctors to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease earlier, and with more certainty. Families can get the latest information, without even leaving their homes, thanks to an Update on Dementia Research tele-workshop being offered on Thursday by the Alzheimer Society of B.C. Vancouver geriatrician Dr. Philip Lee will explain how research advancements might translate into clinical care for local residents. “We are beginning, more and more, to understand how the disease doesn’t just present itself at times of first symptom onset. There’s a whole process that’s occurring in the background,” he said. “We may be able to make the diag-

nosis earlier and earlier, and potentially in individuals before they have symptoms. To intervene at that point would be desirable so that hopefully we can even prevent—in the future—the condition from actually worsening.” Researchers are exploring new interventions for people diagnosed with dementia, and non-pharmacological interventions such as exercise and diet that may also reduce the risk of the disease. Lee contributes to research but also works with patients at UBC’s Alzheimer’s Disease and Related Disorders Clinic as well as St. Paul’s Hospital Department of Geriatric Medicine. The Update on Dementia Research tele-workshop runs from 7-8 p.m. on Oct. 25. Residents can access it via telephone, with optional online slides. Pre-registration is not necessary.

Leading Ladies perform on Chilliwack stage It’s a lighthearted farce with a couple of love stories thrown in. Leading Ladies, the play by Ken Ludwig running at the Cultural Centre, in the latest production by the Chilliwack Players’ Guild. “You have to suspend credulity to believe in the outlandish plot lines in Leading Ladies,” says director Graham Archer. “But everyone is gullible in a farce. That’s what leads to some of the hilarious situations they get into.” The ‘leading ladies’ are two Shakespearean actors, Jack and Leo, who find themselves performing on the backwater circuit. When an elderly lady is about to leave her fortune to her two longlost English nephews, they decided to try to pass themselves off as her relatives to get the cash.


From left, Darcy Ferrier is Leo and Maxine, Emily Hamel plays Audrey, and Ross Biondilillo is Jack and Stephanie in the Chilliwack Players Guild’s production of Leading Ladies at the Cultural Centre.

The plot thickens when it turns out they aren’t nephews at all, but nieces. “Max” and “Steve” are actually “Maxine” and “Stephanie,” but they continue on, undaunted, dressed in drag to earn the inheritance. There is a nod to the movie, Some Like it

Hot, with Jack Lemmon and Tony Curtis dressing up as women, in Leading Ladies, says the director. “Ludwig put in a couple of elements, like the tango scene which reminds you of Jack Lemmon,” he says. “It’s very funny.” Some of the comedy

is physical, with a roller-skating session and some chases scenes. “Two guys walking in high heels is pretty physical.” It helps if you know a little about William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, Archer says. “Ludwig uses that play to show off some of the more humorous moments.” In Leading Ladies, a young woman playing a man in the Twelfth Night is being wooed by a man who is dressed as a woman. Set design and construction was by Matt Brisson. Costumes by Mary Spani and Chrystal Romano and stage manager is Becki Cormier. Leading Ladies runs until Oct. 27. Tickets are $20, or $15 for students and seniors. For more information, call 604-391SHOW (7469).

Hope curlers return to the rink Open night offered to offset drop in ladies league numbers this season

Barry Stewart Hope Standard

Where did all the curlers go? Tuesday Ladies’ Night has been an institution at the Hope Curling Club since the club began — but when they did the count this year, they couldn’t get any more than four teams. “And they weren’t even full teams,” said ice man Roman Petryk on Monday, “so they decided not to curl this year. “It was a matter of time,” figured Petryk. “They’ve only had six teams for the past six or seven years.” The new plan, to give women another crack at the game, is to turn the Thursday slot into an open night, where teams can be made up of any combination of players. “It could be an all-ladies team, or three ladies and one man or whatever,” said Petryk. “We’d like to make eight teams and currently we have six. The Wednesday mixed league has eight.” The challenge of low numbers is not just in the women’s ranks either, he added. “I can remember when I started in 1979 or 1980, there were two draws each night — 16 teams — on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday... as well as Friday night dropin. But there was lots of logging, mining and road construction going on. And that’s all gone now.” The town’s demographics have changed over time to more empty-nesters and retirees and Petryk sees this reflected in the club’s membership. “We’re not getting any younger,” he said, “and we’re having a lot of people going south for one or two months at a time during the winter.” Some of the retirees stick around, though... and if more of them could embrace the sport as a way to stay active, the club could see growth from the golden agers. That’s the way it was for retired pharmacist Jimmy Toy. The activity was the carrot — but it was the stick that brought him back to the sport a few years ago. The curling stick, that is. “I was away from curling for maybe 10 years,” said the active 78-year-old on Monday. “I can no longer go down to deliver the rock because my knee doesn’t support me — but the thing that brought me back is the curling stick. After a few years, I’m getting used to it. I can still sweep as well as any of them.” The stick allows the curler to stand upright and push the stone. A hinged fitting on the end provides an in or out-turn, as applied by the curler’s wrist action. Like golf, curling is a life-long sport that

can start at an early age and continue into the 80s. Or more? Toy may be the test case, as he is active in both sports. “At this point in my life, I curl for the social aspect and the exercise,” he said. “I started curling in 1949, when I first came to Canada from Hong Kong. I came in November, to Bowsman in northern Manitoba. My father was already there and he was a curler. “The rink was indoors but naturally cooled. The walls were made of 1x8 shiplap and the fine snow could blow through the cracks on a windy day and cover the ice. “When I was in high school, we’d play four

games a week — plus bonspiels. Then, when I went to UBC, I continued curling and I used to come up to Hope for bonspiels. When I moved to Hope in 1961, I joined the club.” There isn’t currently a curling program at Hope Secondary, though Petryk said the club welcomes school groups to make use of the facilities, which are available at no cost for students. Club members are also available to help with coaching. Toy credits former member Mary Kirkland with getting his son Galen involved in curling. “Mary used to take the junior curlers out and Galen enjoyed it. He’s one of the few of

that group who continued in the sport.” Galen represents the third generation of curlers in the Toy clan — and he is serving as club president. For those who are interested in learning about the sport — or coming back to it — Petryk said the ice is open for practice on Tuesday nights, from 7-9 p.m. Brooms and sliders are available at no cost, so the only start-up costs are the one-time membership fee of $75 and $230 for the season to take part in one of the leagues.

Heat hit stride vs. Canucks farm team Dan Kinvig

Bounce back from shootout loss to win 4-1

Black Press

With the building filled to the rafters with Vancouver Canucks fans starved for hockey during the NHL lockout, the Abbotsford Heat and Chicago Wolves put on an entertaining show at the Abbotsford Entertainment and Sports Centre on the weekend. The Wolves – the Canucks’ farm team – drew first blood, earning a 3-2 shootout win on Friday. That game ended with Vancouver fans chanting “Eddie, Eddie, Eddie,” in honour of Chicago goalie Eddie Lack, who made a pair of massive breakaway stops on Sven Baertschi and Roman Horak to keep the score tied 2-2 in the third period, and stopped all three Heat shooters in the shootout. “It was pretty special,” Lack said, reflecting on the chants. “I had to come up big for my team, and I did. Then they came up big for me in the shootout.” Zack Kassian and Nathan Longpre scored for the Wolves in regulation on Friday, while Tyler Ruegsegger and Horak notched powerplay goals for Abbotsford during a third-period rally. The Heat didn’t play particularly well, though, and owed goalie Danny Taylor a huge debt of gratitude for salvaging the single point. On Saturday, the hosts gave a far better account of themselves, out-shooting the Wolves 41-26 en route to a dominant 4-1 triumph. Abby’s top line of Baertschi, Ben Walter and Dustin Sylvester was the difference – they generated the gamewinner and the insurance marker in the third period, on goals by Baertschi and Sylvester.

The versatile sophomore forward from the Czech Republic suited up for 61 NHL games with the Calgary Flames last season, but struggled upon being sent down to Abbotsford late in the year. “He didn’t know his role, and he was trying to settle into a team after going through the whole let-down of coming down (from the NHL),” Ward analyzed. “He came back in with a method to his madness. Here’s a kid who wants to play in Calgary.” Heat goalie Barry Brust, seeing his first action after Taylor started the first three games, made 25 saves in Saturday’s win. Friday’s game drew a nearcapacity crowd of 6,871, while Saturday was a sellout at 7,046. • The Heat have three road games this week – Friday and Saturday at the Lake Erie Monsters, and Sunday at the Hamilton Bulldogs.

In Loving Memory of Mike Rudance It’s been two years since that awful 12 hours when you never came home with us from emergency and left us all in shock. Even though 730 days have come and gone since then, so often it still feels like yesterday. There is no time line on grief or the emptiness left by your absence.

Missing You Always You never said I’m leaving. You never said good bye. You were gone before we knew it And only God knows why. A million times I needed you. A million times I cried. If love alone could have saved you, You never would have died. In life I loved you dearly. In death I love you still. In my heart I hold a place, That only you can fill. It broke my heart to lose you. But you didn’t go alone. A part of me went with you, The day God took you home.

I’m so grateful our last words to each other were “I love you”. “Babe”, you are missed by so many. 10/12W_RM24

It is with deep sadness we announce the passing of our beloved Mom and Nana. She is survived by her two children, Brenda (Dave) Greer of Kelowna; Bruce (Tracie) Merkel of Langley; her grandchildren, Darren (Jen), Ryan, Shannon (Richard), Brieanne; her greatgrandchildren, Khayden, Tiana, Adelaide, Brooklynn, Kaelynn; her sister, Peggy; nephews, Kevin, Neil (Shelley) their children, Travis and Danielle. Audrey was predeceased by her loving husband Albert; parents Fred and Charlotte; sisters, Betty and Dorothy. Audrey was born in Eriksdale, Manitoba and moved to BC with her sister Peggy and brother-in-law Norm where she met and married Albert in 1953. They moved to Hope in 1956 where they started a family and raised their two children. She loved music and played many musical instruments by ear. She especially loved singing and playing the piano, which she did at the Legion many a time and at Birthday parties for residents of the Fraser Hope Lodge, before she herself became a resident there. She was a Charter member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles LA for 36 years, as well as a member of the Ladies Auxiliary for the Royal Canadian Legion for 37 years. Our Mom had the best sense of humour and loved a good joke. We will miss her dearly and she will be forever loved within our hearts. A family graveside service will be at Mountainview Cemetery with Pastor Jeff Kuhn. If you so desire, donations may be made to The Heart and Stroke Foundation. Please join us for tea and refreshments to Celebrate her Life at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall (Hope) on Saturday October 27th at 1:00pm. The family would like to thank the staff at Fraser Hope Lodge and Dr. Nyirenda for their care of our mom.
