Hope to offer mobile business licences

Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

Hope is among nine Fraser Valley communities taking part in a oneyear, mobile business licence pilot program. The initiative strives to make it easier for companies to operate by allowing them to purchase one licence for specific trades, rather than obtaining non-resident permits in each municipality they do business. “It makes sense. We want to encourage business and cut out the red tape,” said Parissa Aujla, the district’s director of finance. “It’s revenueneutral. So we’re not bringing in any

Laine Albert Poulson is facing several charges after Hope RCMP recovered a number of stolen items in Silver Creek last week. Police were investigating the theft of a Bobcat attachment and flatbed equipment trailer from Lismore Trailer Park. When they followed up with the 44-year-old suspect at Hope Valley Campground, they found a 2010, 26-foot Arctic Fox travel trailer on the property which was stolen from Agassiz in July. “Experience shows that these guys don’t do one or two crimes,” said Staff Sgt.

The risk of a marine oil spill dominated the first public information sessions Kinder Morgan is hosting in the Lower Mainland on the planned twinning of its Trans Mountain pipeline. But the expected fivefold increase in the number of tankers sailing through the Second Narrows is not what worries Belcarra Mayor Ralph Drew. He believes the twin hulls, two pilots and three tethered tugs shepherding each big tanker, along with other precautions, mean the diluted bitumen should move safely through Burrard Inlet once it’s loaded. Instead, Drew is focusing on the Westridge terminal in north Burnaby as a critically vulnerable point where safety improvements are needed – whether or not the pipeline expansion proceeds. “That loading terminal sits directly on top of a fault zone,” Drew said. “The scenario I believe is possible is an earthquake that causes a rupture of the pipeline.” It might be a seismic event similar to the one that sheared off the side of Burnaby Mountain

50,000 years ago, he said, this time sluicing oil into the ocean nearby. Much would depend on how fast Kinder Morgan could shut off the flow of oil and how quickly crews respond to contain and clean up any oil that reaches the water. And Drew says he remains dissatisfied with the speed of the response to a 2007 spill in north Burnaby and concerned that federal safety regulations only cover the pipeline itself and tankers, but not the terminal. Kinder Morgan is charged with cleaning up land-based spills and its responsibility only extends to the end of its pipe, while shipping firms take responsibility only once a full tanker leaves the dock. That leaves a potential legal “black hole” if a terminal or pipeline accident puts oil into the water before a ship leaves, Drew said. “So long as that ship’s at Kinder Morgan’s dock it’s their loading terminal, it should be their responsibility,” he said, adding the company should be required to have its own trained emergency responders on site. He said Western Canada Marine Response Corp., the cleanup re-

sponse agency contracted by shipping firms, should act only as a backup at the terminal. Drew proposes double booms separated by an inflatable spacer be set up in the water around the terminal and tanker zone, instead of the single boom now used – making it much less likely that oil might escape in a bigger spill or choppy water. Residents along Burrard Inlet are also concerned about the bright lights and noise pollution at night from the big ships and Drew said he’s urging Port Metro Vancouver to address the problem now. Information sessions in the second half of November shift further inland along the Trans Mountain right-of-way, which runs through Burnaby, Coquitlam, Sur-

rey and up the Fraser Valley near Highway 1. The pipeline was built nearly 60 years ago and homes, schools and other development has since sprung up along the route. But residents won’t know how close the new pipeline may come to their property until Kinder Morgan formally applies in late 2013 to build the $4.3-billion project and unveils the proposed corridor, which could deviate from the current one in some places. “They should definitely provide a clear route,” anti-pipeline activist Sheila Muxlow said. “It seems to us Kinder Morgan is going through this process in a backwards fashion.” Muxlow and others with the Pipe Up Network intend to bring their

own protest message to the meetings and press Kinder Morgan over the firm’s safety record and capacity to handle spills. The potential risk to groundwater aquifers from an oil spill in Chilliwack and Abbotsford will be a key issue, she said. “In Chilliwack we don’t have a backup plan for our water supply,” she said. “The water contamination risk alone is enough to really mobilize people to say ‘Whoa, that’s not worth the risk.’” Others, she added, increasingly believe it’s wrong to “build more infrastructure that holds us hostage to a fossil-fuel based economy.” A spokesperson for Kinder Morgan said the company wants advice from residents on where the route should go, adding that will help guide the engineering and environmental teams planning the pipeline corridor. “We’re very early on,” said Lizette Parsons-Bell, adding more rounds of consultation are expected next year and then again after the formal project application is filed. The Trans Mountain information session in Hope is slated for Nov. 28 at C.E. Barry Intermediate School, from 5-8 p.m.

Three years after the B.C. government took over international tourism marketing to direct post-Olympic efforts, Premier Christy Clark has put the tourism industry back in the driver’s seat. Clark and Jobs, Tourism and Innovation Minister Pat Bell announced the creation of a new Crown corporation last week in Vancouver. They said Destination BC will be industry led and have formula funding from provincial taxpayers to advertise the province’s attractions outside the country. Clark said she spoke out as a radio host against the government takeover when it was announced in 2009 by former tourism minister Kevin Krueger. The Council of Tourism Associations expressed “grave concerns” at the time, when the industry-led Tourism BC was disbanded. Bell said Destination BC will have an increasing emphasis on marketing in Asia, especially China and India. It is to take over responsibility April 1, 2013, using currently budgeted funds for the first year. After that, the intention is to base the budget on a legislated percentage of annual sales revenue. Hope & District Chamber of Commerce has been vocal with both sides of the legislature about tourism marketing in the past. “We are pleased with this announcement and hope the benefit of this new Crown corporation results in more tourism dollars being spent in our region,” said president Glen Ogren.

B.C. pot reformers get whiff of weed victory in Washington Jeff Nagel Black Press

B.C. pot reform advocates are celebrating Washington State’s historic vote last Tuesday to legalize and tax marijuana, saying it adds momentum to their campaign for change here. Initiative 502 passed with 55 per cent of voters in favour, making Washington the first U.S. state to legalize possession of up to an ounce of marijuana by adults, along with Colorado, where a similar vote also passed. “Tell everyone I’m elated – it’s the biggest day of our movement ever,” Marc Emery, B.C.’s imprisoned Prince of Pot, tweeted from his U.S. jail cell. His wife Jodie Emery celebrated the win in Seattle – where her husband was indicted for selling pot seeds – with Washington campaigners, including travel guru Rick Steves and the U.S. prosecutorturned-reformer who put Marc behind bars. But U.S. authorities said their enforcement of national drug laws is unchanged –  marijuana remains federally illegal –  and it’s unclear how the state can carry out its plan to license marijuana farming and tax its sale in stores without federal consent. Negotiations are expected in a one-year rule-making period before pot there could be legally farmed or sold. Observers here say the political implications are huge for the debate on drug policy reform in B.C., even if Washington’s legalization plan is blocked. “American voters are now ahead of Canadian governments on the cannabis file,” said former B.C. Attorney General Geoff Plant, a high-profile reformer with the Stop the Violence coalition. “It helps advance the argument for legalization here in B.C.” Rob Gordon, director of SFU’s school of criminology, says it could spur more legalization drives if “the sky doesn’t fall” and Washington starts reaping a windfall of weed revenue. Washington estimates it would collect $560 million in the first year from a 25 per cent tax on the sale of licensed, regulated

What Washington's initiative does q Allows possession of up to one ounce of marijuana for adults over 21 effective Dec. 6. The state law change would be in conflict with federal drug laws. q Removes state law prohibitions against producing, processing and selling marijuana, subject to licensing and regulation. Further rules and details would be worked out over the next year, during which time the state would negotiate with federal authorities. q Imposes 25 per cent taxes on wholesale and retail sale of pot, with most revenue going to health care, drug treatment and education. q Directs state to amend impaired driving laws to include maximum THC levels. marijuana through authorized stores. “Whether or not their federal government is going to tolerate this remains to be seen,” Gordon said. If pot is legally sold in Washington, Gordon expects a partial collapse of B.C.’s estimated $7-billion-a-year illegal pot industry as growers relocate their operations south of the border to avoid the need to smuggle. “The operations in B.C. would shrink considerably –  they’d be focused entirely on patchy local consumption,” he said. B.C. marijuana activist Dana Larsen, who heads the Sensible BC campaign to force a provincial referendum on pot decriminalization using the Recall

and Initiative Act, believes Washington’s vote is a huge step forward. As with the campaign to defeat the HST, volunteers will have 90 days in the fall of 2014 to get thousands of signatures from every riding of the province to trigger a referendum. If it passes, the Legislature would vote on Larsen’s proposed Sensible Policing Act, which would order an end to police enforcement of simple cannabis possession. Premier Christy Clark and NDP leader Adrian Dix both say marijuana reform is up to the federal government and the prime minister has said the Conservatives won’t loosen Canada’s drug laws. But Larsen argues Ot-

tawa could, if pressured enough, exempt B.C. from federal narcotics laws to enable a regulated and taxed marijuana experiment here. He said legal pot in Washington helps end the argument that the U.S. may “retaliate or freak out” if B.C. reforms its drug laws. Plant said he prefers full marijuana legalization, rather than the halfstep of decriminalization, which doesn’t allow regulation and taxation. “Full legalization removes the economic incentive for the illegal manufacture and distribution,” Plant said, adding authorized retail sales should largely end organized crime’s role. Langley City Mayor Peter Fassbender, who opposes marijuana use on grounds ranging from health to impaired driving risks, said it’s a fantasy to think gangs would fade away. “That is living in a dream world,” he said. “They’re not going to hang up their skates and become legal business people.” But Plant said anything that helps sap the strength of gangs would help. “I’m not saying we’re going to put an end to organized crime,” Plant said. “I’m saying let’s put an end

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

Zoos an archaic practice

Another exotic creature has died at the Greater Vancouver Zoo in Aldergrove. Jafari, a 12-year-old male giraffe, was found dead inside its barn on Nov. 3. It is the third giraffe to perish at the zoo, after Jafari’s mate Eleah, 23, and their male offspring, Amryn, 4, died last year. It’s not yet known what caused Jafari’s death, although initial necropsy results seem to rule out low body fat and cold temperatures, as some initially thought. The investigation continues. In each instance of the giraffes’ demise, public reaction has included sadness, concern, and in some cases, harsh criticism of the facility, which has had a disturbing string of deaths among its animal inhabitants over the past several years, including a hippo and four zebras. Negligence was not found to have been a factor in the deaths of the creatures. However, the fact of the matter is that exotic creatures found only in climates and countries vastly different than what exists here, are being imprisoned for the entertainment and “education” of people. It is an archaic practice that must come to an end. Species such as elephants, giraffes and big jungle cats are intended to roam across vast expanses of terrain. Education can no longer be used as an excuse to put them inside enclosures and cages, where they languish – and are ogled by people – until they die. Neither is it justification to say they were born in captivity. As long as zoos allow the animals to breed, the cycle will never end. The point is that wild animals don’t belong in zoos.

Salmon mystery far from solved

Tom Fletcher Before the 1,200-page, $25-million Cohen Commission report on the Fraser River sockeye salmon fishery slips beneath the waves, allow me to dip my toe into the river of data that has flowed by in the past three years. If your information on this hugely complex subject consisted of skimming a few news stories or watching protesters on TV, you will likely conclude what urban people have been indoctrinated with for years. The whole issue is salmon farms and whether they are bad or catastrophic. “Freeze new salmon farms on sockeye migration route: Cohen” said the headline on a Black Press report. Those who read past the

headline would learn that Justice Bruce Cohen recommended a freeze on further salmon farms around the Discovery Islands group near Campbell River until 2020. It’s up to the industry to show by that time that the risk is “minimal,” or farms there should be shut down. A B.C. Salmon Farming Association spokesman said only nine of 70 B.C. salmon farms are in that area. There are no current applications for more. Let’s say you decide to plunge in, and download the full report from  If you go to Volume 2, page 102, you will see a series of graphs that show sockeye runs from rivers other than the Fraser, from Washington all the way up to Alaska. It’s not a pretty sight. From Washington up to the Central Coast, the Skeena, Nass and up to Yukon’s Klukshu and Alaska’s Alsek, most runs show a decline starting in the 1980s or early 1990s.

Austin chaired the committee that called for an end to open-pen salmon farms in five years. Thenagriculture minister Pat Bell approved one NDP recommendation, a moratorium on salmon farms in North Coast waters. This was after the Pacific Salmon Forum conducted its own four-year study, led by former fisheries minister John Fraser. Similar to Cohen, Fraser concluded that there is no simple answer to this complex problem. And they agreed that salmon farms don’t explain it. Cohen’s report makes it clear that the problem is far larger than could possibly be explained by salmon farms. How about logging impact? Cohen concludes after much testimony that stream protection has improved significantly during the time of observed sockeye decline. Impact from extra runoff due to pine beetle infestation couldn’t be evaluated. Poaching on the Fraser? Cohen

didn’t get around to that. His biggest concern was climate change, warming sensitive river waters and affecting ocean conditions. During the Cohen commission hearings, the 2010 Fraser sockeye run came in gangbusters, with 35 million fish. One leading theory is that ash from an Alaska volcano fertilized the ocean, producing algae that supported more salmon feed. Could it be that salmon ranching from Alaska, Japan and elsewhere is simply depleting the food supply? That too is inconclusive. Finally, Tides Canada, a U.S. front group that diverts attention from U.S. salmon and oil tankers, spent $25,000 to publicize Cohen evidence.

Letters Hope Kal Tire was a trip saver

I had a great experience with the Kal Tire in Hope last Wednesday. If your vehicle was in line for a tire changeover and was delayed for half an hour, that was my fault. We were driving home to Quesnel and ironically had four snow tires fresh from a Craigslist purchase inside. I planned to put them on the winter rims waiting back in Quesnel. Well a flat tire coming off Highway 1 at Hope put an end to that! Nice

big sidewall gouge on the inside, likely from hunting last week, let go. It is a bit of a miracle that the tire didn’t self-destruct at highway speeds. Anyways, we pulled the flat off, put the spare (that was quite worn) on, in order to get us to a tire shop. Over to Kal Tire, knowing their first come, first serve policy, I wasn’t holding my breath. Needing to get home to Quesnel for work the next day didn’t leave much room to wait, especially with an infant and tod-

dler in the car. I spoke to Todd, explained the problem, only to hear it was going to be another two hour wait. I thanked him, but explained that I couldn’t wait that long, and needed to be home that night in Quesnel to work the next day. He clearly was torn, offering at least to re-torque the nuts on the spare. As he came out to the vehicle, he saw the girls and said, “I have kids too. I can’t send you up the No. 1 with no spare.

Raising money for Japan My name is Yoshikazu Nakauchi. Thank you for Canada’s help towards the rebuilding effort in Japan last year following the earthquake and tsunami disaster. We really appreciate it. I decided to come to Canada before the disaster happened and wanted to do something within my power to help. I went to the Tohoku region where the damage was greatest after the earthquake happened. I was born there and my family and friends are still living there. I found an organization in Japan that is working to commemorate the disaster in a unique way. Sakura Line 311 seeks to plant sakura (cherry blos-

som) trees in areas affected by the disaster. The line of trees will demarcate the reach of the deadly tsunami, to serve as a “living warning” for future generations, and to serve as a memorial to people who died. The Sakura line will put our mind at peace every spring. The group aims to eventually plant about 17,000 sakura trees, one every 10 metres, and the project is estimated to cost up to 100 million yen ($1.3 million) in total. I’m raising money for this project by bicycling across Canada from one end of the country to the other. For more information, visit Yoshikazu Nakauchi

In every war, civilians die or are wounded, displaced, starved, abused, or used as human shields. When bombs are dropped on a city they are not selective about whom they kill. When mines are laid, the mine does not care who steps on it and when a bullet is fired, it does not avoid the innocent. In all the wars we fight, the innocent die. It is a sad unfortunate fact of war and despite the best efforts of soldiers, it is a fact that will always be with us. I reflect on these often-forgotten casualties, and I make a point to remind people I talk to about their sacrifice. What haunts me is the children I saw during my time in Bosnia. Their faces were full of innocence and life, and they were struggling to make sense of the senseless destruction around them. The children are the

real victims of war. They can’t understand the geopolitics, the prejudice, the hate, or any other reason humans kill each other. All they know is their world becomes a dark scary place full of danger they could not possibly understand. When I look at my sons, I am so grateful for the country I live in and can raise my boys to appreciate. We as Canadians don’t understand what it is like to live in a place where

Children are the real victims of war On the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month in the year 1918, the guns fell silent in what was known then as the Great War. One year later in the Commonwealth, the first Remembrance Day was observed. Since then, Canadians have gathered to observe two minutes of silence and remember. I am a veteran of the NATO peacekeeping mission in Bosnia. I still find it strange at the age of 31 to call myself a veteran, but I am one none the less. I don’t use Remembrance Day to remember, because I remember every day. Seeing the scars war leaves behind stays with you forever. I could not forget even if I tried. What I do on Remembrance Day is reflect on what has brought us to this point, and the true human cost of our freedoms.

New playground

Clarity sought on mining policy AdvantageHOPE weighs in on Morrison Mine decision

Walter Strong Black Press

Pacific Booker Minerals Inc. (PBM) has made a second statement in response to the province’s refusal to issue an Environmental Assessment Certificate (EAC) for the Morrison Mine Project. In his Nov. 8, 2012 statement Erik Tornquist, PBM Chief Operating Officer,  reiterated PBM’s


BC Parks will be installing a new playground at Ross Lake Campground next spring. The playground, along with five others in the South Coast, are being replaced as part of the provincial capital program, which received a $3 million (27 per cent) lift this year. The original playgrounds were constructed in the mid-1980s and no longer meet current Canadian safety guidelines. Designed by Habitat Systems Inc., the new playgrounds are intended to look more natural by using coloured concrete shaped as tree houses and stumps. The play set at Ross Lake Campground has been left in place because it was determined to be a bat habitat. Golden Ears, Chilliwack Lake, Sasquatch, Rolley Lake and Cultus Lake campgrounds will also be getting new playgrounds.


how to play:

• Fill in the grid so that every row, every column & every 3 x 3 box contains the numbers 1 through 9 only once. • Each 3 x 3 box is outlined with a darker line. You already have a few numbers to get you started. Remember: you must not repeat the numbers 1 through 9 in the same line, column or 3 x 3 box.

position that it had met provincial assessment requirements for the project, even though on Oct. 1, 2012 the project was denied the required EAC they needed to proceed. Tornquist further stakes out PBM’s position that the proposed mine site does not fall within the Skeena River headwaters, and that PBM had satisfied both the concerns of the Environmental Assessment Office (EAO) and an independent third-party review concerning the dangers of the mine project to water and salmon habitat. The reverberations of the decision to deny the project an environmental certificate despite having cleared the hurdles of the EAO have been felt throughout the mining industry province-wide. AdvantageHOPE sent a letter to Premier Christy Clark and ministers Terry Lake and Rich Coleman to express concern over the uncertainty created by the circumstances of the decision to terminate the Morrison Mine project. The apparent contradiction between the EAO’s conclusions and the province’s negative decision will have a ‘potential chilling effect on investment,’ the letter claims. In his letter to the premier’s officer Tyler Mattheis, executive director of AdvantageHOPE,  expressed concern that because positive assessment provided by the EAO was not enough to satisfy the province, the door has been left open ‘to speculation that this decision was

cally express their position that the environmental assessment process had not adequately addressed their concerns as First Nations stakeholders. Glen Williams, chief negotiator for the Gitanyow Hereditary Chiefs wrote directly to minsters Terry Lake and Rich Coleman on Aug. 2, two months prior to their final decision to block the project. “We maintain that the EAO process has not discharged the Crown’s consultation obligation to us regarding the Morrison Mine Project,” wrote Williams. But the report released by the EAO never acknowledged the level of opposition that the local First Nations had to the project.  According to Duiven, the disconnect between the findings of the EAO and the province’s decision to reject the proposal mirrors the disconnect between the province and its First Nations. “The single biggest problem we have in B.C. is the lack of a consistent and coherent policy with First Nations as it applies to mineral exploration and development,” said Duiven.  “I don’t have a sense that there’s a coherent provincial policy regarding First Nations.” Ministers Terry Lake and Rich Coleman were responsible for the final decision. Their offices have been contacted for comment but no response was available at press time.

Incredible Opening Month Specials!

The Fraser Canyon is mourning the loss of a local business owner who exemplified the meaning of giving back. Debra Trotter recently passed away at the age of 60 after losing her battle with acute leukemia and

pneumonia. She moved to the Canyon 10 years ago from Chilliwack and opened Elvis Rocks the Canyon Cafe. “Deb’s part in the operation of the Elvis restaurant was always a welcome haven to travelers, and a social gath-

ering spot for locals,” said Lloyd Forman, Boston Bar area director at the Fraser Valley Regional District. “No one will ever forget the major Elvis shows that were put on and the incredible displays in the restaurant. It will be a comfort to the family

to know that this was not the passing of an unknown, but a deeply missed part of the Fraser Canyon.” Trotter spent her life collecting Elvis memorabilia and enjoyed sharing stories with customers at her restaurant. She also hosted regular tribute concerts to raise funds for local community initiatives, including Cops for Cancer, children’s hospital, and the Boston Bar Food Bank. “She was the kind of

person that would give and didn’t like to receive anything,” said her son Gord. “If she had $20 in her pocket, she would give that $20 to somebody before she would spend money on herself.” Trotter’s husband Norm Pans will continue running Elvis Rocks the Canyon Cafe. A celebration of life is planned for next spring at the restaurant featuring performances by some of Trotter’s favourite Elvis impersonators.

Boulder hits moving vehicle

Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

A Lytton family is lucky to be alive, after a large boulder crashed down in the Fraser Canyon. The mother and her two daughters were travelling northbound on Highway 1 near Hell’s Gate just after 9 a.m. on Nov. 7 when the boulder struck the front of their minivan. The highway was reduced to one lane for several hours as crews cleaned up the debris. No one was injured. “In the Lower Mainland, we’ve had boulders come down and depending on where they hit, it’s been a fatality. It’s really a timing issue,” said Corp. Robert Mc Donald, with Lower Mainland Traffic Services. “It’s a good reminder for people that winter conditions are hitting the mountains and to be prepared. You could be stuck for awhile out there, so it’s a good idea to have some food, blankets and chains when you go up in the mountains.”

Biz on the Street

On Nov. 1, AdvantageHOPE held its second AGM where our accomplishments this year were reviewed and new directors appointed to continue the momentum of our society. An AGM is a pivotal organizational moment in which an analysis of the accomplishments and trajectory of the past informs a clearer understanding of both the current situation and a logical future. Our next step is to turn discussion into a structured 2013 work plan, which will occur at our strategic planning session in November. Looking back, the 2012 work plan was ambitious. Many objectives have been achieved such as real estate marketing, lobbying for provincial signage, and regular outreach to potential investors. Some priorities remain unfulfilled such as wayfinding signage and promoting the concept of a local investment syndication. In some cases, unforeseen activities took priority over planned goals - such as the electric vehicle charging station, the PNP program I spoke of last month, and advocacy of the Flying J truck stop in Silver Creek.

Sports Hope basketball teams ready for new season Barry Stewart Hope Standard


Dribbling a basketball while catching and tossing a tennis ball is a great way for Brandon Stewart and his teammates to increase their ball handling skills. Hope Secondary is fielding five basketball teams this season and hosting the C.E. Barry girls’ team for their home games.

ball competitively,” explained the coach. “This year is looking more promising, with the team developing greater skill and understanding of the game. We’re looking forward to our first game in late November.”

With the high level of interest in girls’ basketball, the school is also fielding a Grade 8 team, coached by teacher Dawn Friesen. She and senior girls coach Tammy Nazarchuk were unavailable by press time.

Jason Fisher, who shares vice principal duties with Nazarchuk, is coaching the senior boys team this season — and he’s borrowing an old trick from retired sciences teacher Rick Piechotta: tennis balls.

The Hope Mustangs floor is taking a daily pounding, as five basketball teams get ready for the coming season. Add the C.E. Barry Grade 7 girls and it makes six teams using the Hope Secondary floor. There is no Grade 7 boys’ team this year. “The Grade 7 girls have already started their season,” said HSS athletics director Alicia Dubois. “Ron MacDonald is their coach. They’ve got at least 10 teams in their league and they play their home games in our gym. “On Nov. 20, Rosedale Middle and Chilliwack Middle are here for a triple header. Hope will play both teams, and they’ll play each other. Then on Dec. 4, G.W. Graham and A.D. Rundle will be here.” For the high school teams, the coaching is a mix of school staff and community volunteers. Jake Giles, the youth-and-children’s pastor at Grace Baptist Church has taken on the Grade 8-9 boys’ team, while Grace’s senior pastor Jeff Kuhn is back for his sixth year of coaching — this time, with the Grade 9 girls. Like Kuhn, Giles grew up south of the border. “I grew up in Dallas, Texas,” said Giles. “I went to school in Chicago and lived most recently in east Tennessee. “I’m very excited to have the opportunity to coach this year,” he added. “My last coaching stint was a couple of years ago in Dallas, where I coached seventh grade boys. Besides that, I’ve coached a few elementary-aged teams and led some summer training camps. “I’m really excited about our team. We have some guys with experience, as well as some guys who are getting out on the floor for the first time. So far, our practices have shown me that our guys are willing to work hard and play together.” Kuhn is getting assistance from Janelle Brouwer and his daughter Madison. “After a tough series of tryouts we have solidified the team with 10 girls,” said Kuhn. “They’re working very hard and are quickly shaping into a tight team.” He worked with the girls in Grade 8 and has moved up a notch with them. “Last year was a tough year, as — for many of our girls — it was the first year they had played basket-

He has a boxful of them. Practicing with a partner, one player dribbles a basketball down the floor, while the partner (walking backward) gently tosses a tennis ball for the dribbler to catch and throw with the free hand. Gum chewing is optional. “The work we do with the tennis balls is designed to improve handeye coordination, as well as working on keeping the head up while dribbling,” explained Fisher. “Some of the athletes are already quite good at it, as they have been doing this for a few years now.” It’s a fairly young team, with only Nathan Polomark, Akshay Davesar, Travis Herrling and Kaine Coghill in the grad class. It’s a fairly low-altitude team, too, with only a few players pushing past the sixfoot mark.  “The last time I coached the senior boys, we were in the same situation” said coach Fisher. “We played a 4-and-1 offence that time and will be running a similar offence again this season.  “The players I have on the inside don’t have as much basketball experience, but are athletic and are committed to improving. [Assistant coach] Ivan Marlatt and I will be working closely with them to improve their post play this season.”  “I’m really pleased with the number of athletes that showed up for tryouts this year, given the low numbers last year,” said Fisher. “With the number of Grade 10 and 11 athletes in the program now, it should bode well for the future of boys’ basketball at HSS. It’s also exciting to see an enthusiastic and knowledgeable coach taking on the junior boys’ program this year.”  The boys start their season on the road, with a tournament at Meadowridge School on Nov. 30 and Dec. 1 and the girls host their annual tournament on Dec. 14 and 15. Dubois said that reduced enrolment has allowed the senior teams to register as single-A teams this year. The boys’ league has four teams and the girls’ six. “Both teams start their seasons on the road and they don’t have their first home league game until Jan. 15, when they host Unity Christian,” said Dubois. “It’s just the way the schedule worked out — but after that, all of the games are at home.”
