Child care challenges in Hope

Darla Dickinson Contributor

Talk to anyone who has lived in Hope for 20 years and you will hear of the multitude of stores and businesses that once lined the streets. Slowly, over the years, businesses and companies have closed or moved on and the economic base of Hope has gradually changed. Now, an added deterrent for young families residing in Hope is the challenge of finding child care. “When I first started in the industry most parents were doing 9-5 but today the economy has changed and we are in desperate need to find

child care providers willing to cover shift work,” said Kim Paolini, program coordinator for Child Care Resource and Referral (CCRR). “Our 9-5 world is shifting, and we have to learn to shift with it.” CCRR was created to provide a free resource for parents and child care providers, while ensuring that quality child care is available. “The needs of parents in Hope are changing, as more and more parents find themselves working shift and weekend work, while most daycare providers are still only offering 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday to Friday,” said Paolini. “The solution is simple,

we need more care providers willing to work evenings and weekends, or people willing to establish a daycare business to meet just that need.” Child Care Resource and Referral offers resources, program ideas, equipment and support to set up a licensed child care home based business. “Our goal is to ensure that child care providers provide the best care possible for children,” added Paolini. “The first five years are the most important for a child’s development.” Once a business is licensed, the child care provider can have up to

seven children, otherwise the maximum number of children they can care for is two (not including their own). In addition, Paolini noted that registered child care providers are eligible for extra subsidy funding from the Ministry of Children and Family Development as well as support and resources if they have a particular child that has behavioral issues. In many cases, parents are also eligible for child care subsidy support as well. For more information, contact Paolini at 604-869-2466 ext. 403 or email

She crashed into a family from Chilliwack in a 2003 Mazda3 hatchback heading west at about 10:45 a.m. The 29-year-old Chilliwack man and his 24-year-old wife sustained non-life-threatening injuries. Their three-month old baby was unharmed. “This tragic loss of life has impacted a fam-

ily forever,” said RCMP Sgt. Peter Thiessen. “This is a time of year when families come together and celebrate the holidays, but unfortunately a family now grieves the loss of a beloved family member.” The BC Coroners Service and Upper Fraser Valley Traffic Services continue to investigate.

Missing Langley man’s body found in Hope The family of missing Langley man Dan Rikkinen are in mourning, after Hope RCMP discovered his body on Dec. 9. Rikkinen was found in his burned-out pickup truck in the Hope area. Forensic special-

ists were called in to make the identification, confirmed Cpl. Len Vannieuwenhuizen of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional RCMP. “The matter is still under investigation, but foul play is not

suspected,” he said. Rikkinen went missing on Nov. 22 after visiting his wife at Langley Memorial Hospital. Family members told the media that he had just celebrated his 59th birthday and had

made plans for the weekend, but left without a trace after making a large withdrawal of cash from a bank the next day. He had plans to move to Vancouver Island with his wife after she got out of hospital.

Strahl to chair BC/Yukon caucus

Robert Freeman Black Press

C hi l liwack-Fras er Canyon MP Mark Strahl has been named by Prime Minister Stephen Harper to chair the Conservative party’s BC/Yukon caucus effective immediately. “I feel honoured and humbled to have been asked by the Prime Minister to take over this important role,” Strahl said in a Thursday news release announcing the appointment. He later told Black Press that he believes he may be the only MP among those elected for the first time in May, 2011, to be so honoured. Strahl, now 34, agreed his previous political work behind the scenes as an assistant to two Conservative MPs, and as an election campaign manager and as president of the Conservative board of directors may have had something to do with his appointment as chair of the regional caucus. But, he added: “I think it’s just the Prime Minister trusted my judgment and thinks I’m ready for the challenge the position presents.”

Holidays offer many local activities

Watch for our next edition delivered to your home and at newsstands on Monday December 24.

Inge Wilson Contributor

The children are home from school for their Christmas holiday break starting Friday and they will be full of excitement and energy. Many Hope families will also be hosting family and friends from far and wide for the holiday season – how to keep them all busy and entertained? One of the first options to consider should be the wonderful recreation facilities that our small town is fortunate enough to have in the Dan Sharrers Aquatic Centre, Hope Arena and Gym/Cardio Room. While all of the facilities will be closed on Dec. 25-26 and Jan. 1, there is a special schedule of expanded public hours over the rest of the holiday break. By offering your children and visitors a fun outing of swimming, soaking, skating or working out, you can also help them burn off some of those extra holiday calories. Contact the Hope Recreation Complex at 604-869-2304 to check on schedules and admission rates. Some of the special events that the Hope rec centre is offering this holiday season include a drop and shop session from 1-5 p.m. on Dec. 22. Need some time to Christmas shop? Or maybe to wrap presents without distractions? Bring your children in for an afternoon of fun. Snack provided. Cost per child is $15. Winter Festival day camps are offered Dec 27-28 and Jan. 2-4, from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. for ages six through to 12. Winter break day camps include a variety of games, crafts, swimming, skating, and bowling. Children should bring a lunch, swimsuit and towel. If possible, they should also bring a helmet and skates. The cost is $32/child per day and participants must be pre-registered. On Dec. 29, there will be a friends and family games night in the concession area from 6-8 p.m. for all ages. Settle in and socialize over the board and card games provided. Cost is $2/person. For those that are suffering from hockey withdrawal there is also an opportunity to be a spectator at the January 4-6 midget minor hockey tournament at the Hope arena. Come out and cheer on the local hockey players. Note that all public skating and casual hockey times are cancelled during this tournament weekend. Another fun option for all age levels is five-pin bowling at Sunshine Lanes. For extra excitement try their “Galactic Bowling” option complete with music, lights, and lasers. Reserve a lane by calling 604-869-7027. Also ask them about their racquetball, virtual golf and “wallyball” activities. The Hope Cinema is another entertainment facility in Hope that caters to all ages. They have first-run movies playing Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday nights at 7:30 p.m. Starting Dec. 21, they will be showing the eagerly awaited Tolkien series film

12/12w HS19


Manning Park Resort offers a variety of winter activities including downhill and cross country skiing, and snowshoeing.

The Hobbit. Check their information line at 604-869-0752 for show times and details. If you are looking to enjoy a live theatre performance, then plan to attend the Pantomine Play “Beauty, the Baron and the Beast” by the Hope Performing Arts Community Theatre at the Hope Station House at 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. on Dec. 22. Tickets for the show are $10. They can be reserved by emailing or calling 604-206-7227. On Dec. 23, this play will be repeated after a special brunch with the Cinderella, Belle, Red Riding Hood and Prince Charming characters. This will also be at the Hope Station House The brunch starts at noon and the show follows at 1 p.m. Tickets for the show are $10. Tickets for the brunch and show are $12. They can be reserved by emailing or calling 604-206-7227. Hope is fortunate to have many great walking trails and two that remain easily accessible throughout the winter season are the Rotary Nature Trail along the Coquihalla River (accessible from the corner of Seventh Avenue and Wardle Street) and the Thacker Regional Park trail on the abandoned Kettle Valley Railway grade along Thacker marsh (accessible from Union Bar Road, but the gravel parking lot is not available due to bridge construction on Union Bar Road so park on the shoulder of the road near the Coquihalla River Bridge). Both are easy strolls of about 30 to 45 minutes return in length and provide bird watching opportunities. If you don’t want to venture out alone in nature consider taking part in the Dec. 22 “Families In Nature” program presented by Hope Mountain Centre for Outdoor Learning. This is a free program for families of all ages to discover the nature that sur-

rounds us. Meet at the Hope rec centre at 10 a.m. and dress appropriately for the weather. Bring water and snacks as nature walks are up to two hours in length. For the safety and comfort of others please leave your pets at home. Program runs rain, snow or shine. For more information, call 604-869-1274. If Santa brings you new electronic gadgets equipped with GPS abilities you can also get out to explore the world of geocaching (treasure hunting using GPS coordinates). There are hundreds of hidden treasure caches in the Hope region but not all of them will be winter friendly so choose wisely from those listed at www. – just enter a local postal code and lots of choices will be offered. If Hope should be fortunate enough to have snow over the holiday season you can add tobogganing and cross country skiing to your list of activity options. The hill at Kawkawa Lake Park is a perennial favourite for those with tubes and sleds. Even if Hope does not receive snow itself there are a number of locations close by that offer a wide variety of winter sports. Manning Park Resort is only about an hours drive east of Hope on Highway 3 and offers downhill and cross country skiing as well as snowboarding and snowshoeing. They also have a toboggan hill and the “Polar Coaster” tube park. These facilities are open daily over the holiday break plus they offer equipment rentals and lessons. Call 250-840-8822 or check www. for prices, times and details. Even if you don’t want to be active, a drive to the Manning Park Lodge will offer you spectacular winter scenery and a tempting menu of treats in the Cascade Café or Bear’s Den Pub. This outing is great at lifting spirits if Hope suf-

fers through an extended period of gloomy weather since Manning Park almost always offers sunshine and clear blue skies during the winter season. Snowmobiling in the Falls Lake and Coquihalla Lakes area will appeal to those who want more speed and excitement. These areas are only about a 30 minute drive northeast of Hope on Highway 5. You must have your own snowmobile or you can arrange for a rental through Variable Rentals in Kamloops. Call them at 250-573-6073 or 250-319-3424 for details or visit As for New Year’s Eve parties, there will be one at the Hope Station House (111 Old Hope Princeton Way) starting at 8 p.m. featuring live entertainment by The Crew and deluxe food offerings. Tickets are $29.99 per couple or $15.99 for a single. Tickets available at Hope Pharmasave, the Station House or by calling Ron at 604-860-3126. Proceeds will go to the front of building restoration.

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

A costly crossing The smile on the face of the premier illuminated the early morning gloom as the new Port Mann bridge was officially opened to eight lanes earlier this month. It’s hard to say how long the honeymoon will last, especially when commuters and truckers start to see the effect the full cost of tolls will have on their wallets every month. Sensing the backlash that financial hit could spawn, crossing the bridge will be half price until Feb. 28 for drivers who haven’t registered for a special windshield sticker and until next November for those who have. The government is hoping if they get drivers hooked on the new bridge, they’ll pay whatever it takes to keep moving and won’t blink when they start getting dinged three bucks a crossing. But they may be underestimating the determination of Greater Vancouver motorists to drive for a bargain. Already burdened by the highest cost of living in Canada, extracting another $1,500 a year out of the household accounts of regular users of the Port Mann could be one debit too much. Not to mention the increases in the cost of food and consumer goods that are transported by trucks over the bridge. Three years ago the tolled Golden Ears Bridge that links Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows to Highway 1 via Langley was opened with similar fanfare. Yet every morning, drivers heading west from those communities line up bumper-to-bumper on the Lougheed Highway to cross the free Pitt River bridge as the six lanes of the Golden Ears sit largely empty. While tolls help pay for the infrastructure we so desperately need to keep up with Greater Vancouver’s booming population, those tolls need to be kept affordable for all. - Black Press

Premier ponders black ink, oil

Tom Fletcher Premier Christy Clark has completed the traditional round of year-end interviews with legislative press gallery reporters. Here are excerpts from my discussion with her, dealing with the Enbridge oil pipeline proposal and the balanced budget her government has promised to present in February. TF: On the Enbridge project, are you getting the answers you want on safety? PCC: No, we’re not. We’ve set out our position. The five conditions need to be met, period.   [B.C.’s conditions are “world-

We’ve been cross-examining Enbridge. We have not been getting any of the answers that we hoped to get. We haven’t gained a lot of comfort from that process. And none of the other conditions are even close to being met. We are doing our own study of marine traffic. We want to understand the total number of ships that are out there plying our coast right now. Because all of them have fuel in them, and some are

cargo ships that are big enough to have enough [bunker] fuel as a mini-tanker would. Part of this is trying to understand where our level of Coast Guard protection needs to be today, in order to protect us should there be a spill from the existing traffic. TF: Balancing the budget: the finance ministry’s current projections call for an upturn in natural gas royalties in the coming year. With the current glut of gas, isn’t that kind of far-fetched? PCC: It is going to be difficult to present a balanced budget, but I think, because we’re going to build in some [forecast] allowance, as we always do, and because we’re going to be completely transparent about the assumptions that have led us there, and because we aren’t going to fiddle with any of the assump-

tions that we receive from the experts in the Ministry of Finance, it’s going to be quite clear that we have done it. We have come by a balanced budget honestly. So when it comes to natural gas, you know that the assumption we use in the budget is based on a fairly complex formula that the Ministry of Finance has relied on for probably a decade now. We don’t fiddle with that. There are those who would say we should artificially lower the [revenue projection] number that we use. But if you artificially lower it, what’s to stand in the way of artificially raising it? You either accept the advice of your experts or you don’t. And they’re the experts, not the politicians. TF: Right now we have a deficit gap of more than a billion dollars. Can that be closed without signifi-

Bear committee had successful year

Lions donation

Fire chief and Hope Lion Tom DeSorcy (right) recently presented early bird winner John Fortoloczky with a $500 cheque. “After Christmas Cash” tickets are still available from Lion members and at select Hope retailers. Prizes will be drawn Jan. 12.

Now that the bears are hibernating, the Hope Mountain Black Bear Committee and the Conservation Officer Service would like to thank the residents of Hope for a great year. Our partnership this past year has resulted in the creation of a program to raise awareness about bear attractants and coexisting with bears in Hope. We are very thankful for all the encouragement and help we have received from so many Hope residents. The garbage situation

has greatly improved and people have become more tolerant and understanding about the issues we face when living in bear country. We would like to thank the RCMP for their help, particularly on Halloween night, and we look forward to another year of cooperation. We are very grateful to the District of Hope for providing a helping hand whenever possible, and for financial support in the form of a grant in

aid. We are also thankful for the signs and bear proof garbage containers distributed throughout town by the district. This was a big step in the right direction. Many thanks to the Hope Rotary Club for their financial support, and also to all local businesses which have donated to our fundraisers or provided other forms of assistance. It is very much appreciated and we would not have been so successful without your help.

The FVRD and The BC Conservation Foundation are also thanked kindly for their financial help and other support. We say a big thank you to all of the dedicated volunteers who have made this program possible by donating countless hours to keeping the residents, and bears, of Hope safe. And last but not least, we thank the residents of Hope for their interest and willingness to change old habits. Because of the many

It wouldn’t have taken any longer and we would still have the rose bush” or “How are you going to fill those awful wheel ruts in the flower bed?” not realizing of course that it will be a “breeze.” All we have to do is attach the rear blade to the tractor and wait until conditions are right. The “right conditions” are defined as being home alone. It is essential to work out a set of hand signals that allow for communication between the tractor driver and the driver of the pickup truck. It is crucial to adjust the forward speed of the pickup and to synchronize the release of the clutch with the

disappearance of slack in the tow rope. I have been told that if this part of the operation is done properly, the tow rope will remain in one piece. I find this hard to believe. There are a number of universal hand signals that convey precise directions to the other party. However, wives seem to have an uncanny ability to improvise and change hand signals to suit a particular situation. There is a correlation between the degree of change in the signals and the amount of stress associated with the towing operation.

For instance, a right hand raised to about ear level and flopping widely means you are going to fast, or it could it could stop, or there goes a fingernail, or it’s too late to save the rosebush. After the tow rope breaks for the second time, I have a signal that involves throwing my hat on the ground with great gusto. This is her signal to disappear into the house. I have not been able to figure out what she means when she points at me with her left hand and then points the index finger at the side of her and rotates it around her ear.

Male rebuttal to why country women go gray All men realize the absolute necessity of having a wide range of motorized equipment available to keep the yard and garden in order and the driveway free of snow. Sometime our country women think there are occasions when the job could have been completed by hand, using a shovel and a rake, in about half the time it took to fondly stroke and remove the tractor from the shed. Of course, we men know better, but because of this, we have to be very careful not to find ourselves in a situation that requires us to proceed to the kitchen door with hat in hand and ask for help to extricate a stuck tractor or hook up a piece of equipment. In the case of a stuck

Passport to Christmas

Several changes at Hope Library other events around town. LiLi’s mandate is take the library out of the library. There have been staff changes too. Bronwyn spent the summer in Abbotsford and then moved on to Port Coquitlam. Toni is going back into semi-retirement soon – and it has been a real pleasure to work with her for the last six months. Kristin G. moved from being a page here in Hope to working as a casual circulation assistant at many of our 24 libraries. And so, Sarah is now our new shelving wizard. I’m still coming and going doing programs both in and out of the library. I suppose that hasn’t changed! In the first few months of 2013, we have several author visits, exciting spring break programs, and a brand new book club for children. More change! Toni, Jacquelynne, Sarah and myself – all of us – are looking forward to seeing you in the library in the coming year. And a great big thank you to all of the people who make the Hope Library a bustling, busy place – may each and every one of you experience all the joys and happiness of the holiday season.


Here we are, already near the end of December, with many of us (like me) near giddy with the anticipation of the joy of spending the holidays with family and friends. It really has been a great year! Now I don’t have a particularly philosophical bent, but the views expressed by the Greek philosopher Heraclitus certainly resonates with my career and with our work here in the library. In Libraryland, you see, the only constant is change. This year a puppet theatre was installed in the children’s area, resulting in almost daily puppet plays (and the children are very creative). This was made possible through donations from two generous library visitors. Funds raised by the 2012 Quiz Night helped Deb purchase a Ireland new chair in the tween area and a new carpet in the tween area appeared there as well – thanks here to our fabulous volunteers, the Friends of the Hope Library. The Friends also purchased the snazzy red mini-couch, which provides seating for the puppet show audience. The library system as a whole went a little greener and moved toward using less paper, using digital signage in many of the branches. In Hope, the display unit is on the wall behind the desk and has information about changing library initiatives and programs. New databases include Naxos (music), Mango (languages), OneClickDigital (e-books) and Zinio (magazines). Mango, OneClick, and Zinio can all be used on mobile devices. How awesome is that? Another innovation which ranks very high on the awesomeness scale are the new Community and Internet cards which both allow more universal access to the library’s collection. Along the same lines, LiLi and Smitty, as Library Live and On Tour, have been visiting the Thunderbird Hotel and have been at Story Time in the Park and

*** On the Nightstand: Just finished Notorious Nineteen by Janet Evanovitch. I’ve read the first 18 Stephanie Plum mysteries and this is a good series for anyone who enjoys a light read. But with this latest, the plot and characters (and even scenes – for crying out loud, how many times does Stephanie’s car have to blow up?) are getting stale. Barbara Kingsolver’s latest, on the other hand, is fabulous. Flight Behavior is the poignant story of Dellarobia Turnbow, a young woman dissatisfied with her life and family relationships in a small Tennessee community. Rich characters, brilliant writing, and a strong message about climate change make this a worthwhile and engaging read.

Sports Mustangs finish fifth in home tournament Annual Hope Secondary alumni basketball games take place Dec. 19 Barry Stewart Hope Standard

Basketball fans were treated to a classic nailbiter in the Hope Secondary gym last Friday. The senior Mustang girls’ were in the opening game of their home tournament, against BC Christian Academy of Port Coquitlam — and Hope only led by two points at the half, 20-18. A couple of treys in the third quarter helped the visiting Panthers pull ahead 34-31, but the Mustangs were ready to battle. There were more fouls called in the final quarter than in the rest of the game — and the Panthers made two more points than the Mustangs could manage at the foul line. With four minutes to go, Morgann Steeves sank one from the foul line to bring the score to 38-38. At 3:18, Mina Kim gave Hope a 41-40 lead and Steeves added a single at 2:15 to make it 42-40. The Panthers answered with two points from the line, tying the match again. Jamie Peters then took a pass from a throw-in and sank a shot to put Hope up 44-42 and Kim sank two free-throws with a minute remaining, giving the Mustangs a 46-42 lead. The Mustangs poured on an aggressive forecheck and were picking off the visitors’ passing, but the Panthers sank three of four foul shots in the last minute. Down by a single point with only seconds left, the Panthers’ hottest shooter, Shamara Abraham, unleashed a hail-Mary shot that banged off the rim and the Mustangs contained the ball to secure the 46-45 win. Coach Tammy Nazarchuk said the following game against D.W. Poppy on Saturday morning was a very aggressive match. “We had three of our players foul out in the first half,” she said. “It was 27-23 for Poppy at the half but they pulled away after that.” Final score: 69-50, with Azalia John netting 26 points, four of them from the foul line. “Poppy ended up second in the tournament,” added Nazarchuk. “Mission Ecole won it, by about 20 points.” The Mustangs were schooled by Burnsview, 60-22 in their third game. “Hope’s tournament all-stars were Morgann Steeves, Azalia John and Jamie Peters,” said Nazarchuk, “with honourable mention to Arden Sauvé.” ***


Senior Mustang Azalia John goes up for two of her 16 points in the opening game of the girls’ home tournament last weekend. Hope battled neck-and-neck with the BC Christian Academy of Port Coquitlam but a missed shot in the dying seconds gave Hope a 46-45 win. The Mustangs dropped their two games on Saturday, to finish fifth out of eight teams. Tonight (Wednesday), Hope Secondary hosts its annual alumni games, with the senior girls taking on the returnees at 6 p.m. The senior boys take on the former boys at about 7:45 p.m. Admission is free, but there will be a raffle and 50/50 draws. Proceeds go toward team expenses.

Hope Secondary’s annual alumni games take place tonight (Wednesday), with the senior girls taking on the grads of yesteryear at 6 p.m. The men’s game starts at about 7:45 p.m. Rebecca Arrowsmith, a 2011 grad, is organizing the night with fellow-alumnus Linden Willock, Jaclyn McNicol and Janelle Brouwer. Using Facebook as a sign-in device, Arrowsmith said over 10 women had indicated interest in playing or at least attending. “All the Brouwer sisters are planning on being there,” said Arrowsmith. “Janelle, Tori, Lauren and Rachel. Also Carmen Pernitsky, Reegan Barber, Richelle Willick, Rachel Deschenes, Hannah Jarvis, Shalene Sherman and myself. “Linden is taking care of the men’s side but I know Rob and Kyle Kjemhus will be there, along with Linden and Wilson Willock and Clayton Steinebach. Admission is free, but there will be a raffle and 50/50 draws. Monies will go to the athletic department to help out with costs of running the senior basketball teams.
