Home invasion in Silver Creek Police are looking for two men involved in a home invasion in the Silver Hope Trailer Park in Hope. According to the RCMP, the suspects entered the home on Jan. 23 at about 12:30 a.m. and began to assault the lone occupant. They demanded cash from the man and eventually  fled the trailer with an undisclosed amount of cash and oth-

er items of value to the victim. The man did not suffer any serious injuries as a result of the assault. Police believe the suspects and victim knew each other. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to contact Hope RCMP at 604-869-7750 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).

Hope trailer fills with smoke

Hope Fire Department was called to a reported structure fire at the Cedars Mobile Home Park in Silver Creek just before 11 p.m. on Friday. “It appears the occupant was in another

part of the trailer when he noticed that it was filling with smoke. He exited the trailer and called 911,” said fire chief Tom DeSorcy. “Upon further investigation, he realized he had left a pan cooking

on the stove which was the cause of the smoke.”  There was no damage to the home and the man was checked by paramedics at the scene.  Seven firefighters responded to the call. 

Grow-op found in Boston Bar A 58-year-old Boston Bar man has been arrested in connection with a marijuana grow-op. Police seized 91 harvested plants along with six to seven pounds of bud that was in the drying phase from a home on Gibson Road on Jan. 12. “The Boston Bar RCMP are committed to dismantling grow-ops in

the area,” said Const. Tracy Wolbeck.  “Boston Bar is a small community and we want everyone who lives there to feel safe and know that these crimes are a big priority to the police.” The 58-year-old man was released from custody with a promise to appear in court at a later date.

Volunteers receive Diamond Jubilee medals

Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

Three Hope residents have been awarded with Queen Elizabeth ll Diamond Jubilee medals. Hans Jeschek, Earl Rowe and Richard Zervini received recognition for their service to the community and Canada in a special ceremony hosted by ChilliwackFraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl last Wednesday at the Chilliwack Cultural Centre. The commemorative medal was created to mark the 2012 celebrations of the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s accession to the Throne. “I think it’s humbling,” said Rowe. “I listened to the other people getting medals and they’re incredible.” The former district town manager was recognized not only for his contributions to Hope, which include helping organize the Rick Hansen 25th Anniversary Relay event in 2012, but also for

his commitment to fundraising for the Multiple Sclerosis Society of Canada and United Way. Rowe was also acknowledged for leading the development of post-9-11 antiterrorism improvements along the borders and successfully lobbying for federal funding of the initiative while working as the general manager for the Buffalo and Fort Erie Public Bridge Authority. Jeschek was surprised to receive recognition for his volunteer leadership in the community. The local realtor was involved in the establishment of the local Chamber of Commerce in 1975 and has supported numerous fundraising efforts and community projects over the years including building the Memorial Park playground, Sixth Avenue ballpark lighting, Sucker Creek Salmon Enhancement Project, and the street banners program. Jeschek, who currently volunteers with Hope Crime Prevention Society, was Hope

and District Chamber of Commerce’s first lifetime honorary member in 2001 and received the Queen Elizabeth ll Golden Jubilee medal in 2003. He has also been involved with the B.C. Chamber of Commerce as a district director and served as an elected member for 10 years on the Leadership and Management Development Council of B.C. Zervini has volunteered with the Yale and District Historical Society for over five years, primarily carrying out maintenance work at Yale Historic Site. The Society was formed in 1977 to gather, preserve, record and exhibit Yale’s history. “It was an honour,” he said. “It was nice to be appreciated, but you don’t do it for the recognition.”

RCMP Supt. Keith Robinson retiring as ‘top cop’ Robert Freeman Black Press

Listen and learn from the community. That’s the best advice RCMP Supt. Keith Robinson can pass on to his successor as commanding officer of the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment. “Whoever comes in, what they need to do is sit back and listen and learn,” said Robinson, who’s retiring on Feb. 1 after nearly 40 years in the RCMP, the last three years as commanding officer of the UFVRD. “You’ve got to take a look at the people around you, the people working with you, and listen to the community and what they want,” he said. “That’s how I came in.” Robinson said that task was probably easier for him because he had been the detachment’s operations officer before he took on the job of officer in charge. “It didn’t take me long to figure out what we were going to do,” he said. RCMP Insp. Grant Wilson, the current operations officer in the UFVRD, will be the acting commander until a replacement for Robinson is hired. It’s not

known whether Wilson has applied for the position. Nine RCMP officers are currently on a short-list of applicants, which the four mayors in the region will review before approving a new commanding officer. Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz said the mayors of Agassiz, Harrison Hot Springs and Hope are meeting this week to review the applicants. She said Robinson delivered on his promise to bring stability to the detachment, and was key in getting the prolific offender program under way, which has reduced crime across the region. “He has set the mark really high, and we can expect great policing to continue,” she said. The Fraser Valley mayors are looking for a replacement who shows leadership, she said, “and someone who believes in community and inculcates that value in his or her staff.” Robinson said the challenge for the incoming commander, male or female, is maintaining the regional policing model, while at the same time delivering police services tailored to the four communities in the detachment area.

months. Robinson said the RCMP has changed “considerably” and “all for the better” in his 40 years of service. But the positive changes don’t get the same media attention. “The nice thing about our outfit, and I don’t think it gets reported on well enough, is that we’re always open to listen to what people consider to be our problems,” he said. “What we don’t see often enough is all the good things, the

“The communities are different, and they’re each looking for a different policing style,” he said. “We provide a basic service, and then we enhance that service by whatever the community requires.” Chilliwack has its downtown crime issues, he said, the rural communities of Agassiz and Hope need a more visible police presence, and the recreation community of Harrison Hot Springs needs a special focus in the summer

positive side, of the general work that’s done by the membership.” “If we never did anything about (an issue), that’s where I would say we have a problem. But we do things about it.” While the media is still writing about the lack of communication in the RCMP, Robinson said changes have already been made to remedy that problem “We communicate now far better than we used to 20

years ago,” he said. “There’s been no better time. You don’t see that (reported) in the press.” “My point is, if you want to go after an organization you will always find warts,” he said. “And if you focus on the warts, that’s all you will see and that’s what happened to the RCMP.” “But if you were to take that focus and redirect it to any other professional organization,” he added, “you’ll find the warts, and if you focus on the warts, eventually that profession will have issues with public opinion.” Robinson also said the RCMP is already the regional police force that’s being called for in the wake of the police mishandling of the Pickton investigation. “We’re probably the most regional police force anywhere,” he said. “We provide a service at far less cost than any municipal police force in the country.” “If you want a regional police force, hire the RCMP and we’ll come in and do the job.” Robinson, who lives in Chilliwack, said his retirement plans are traveling and taking time to pursue his wood-working hobby.

BCTF rejects government’s ‘peace’ offer Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. government’s proposed new bargaining framework for teachers has been rejected by the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. Premier Christy Clark and Education Minister Don McRae unveiled their proposal last Thursday, calling it a new path to a 10-year agreement to “labour peace” with the province’s 40,000 public school teachers. The proposed framework calls for pay increases based on an average of nurses, post-secondary

faculty and other government employees, and a separate “education policy council” to administer funds for classroom support. Clark and McRae stressed that it would offer teachers a formal role in policy decisions, and a voice in allocating a “priority education investment fund” that would rise to $100 million by the third year. BCTF president Susan Lambert said the proposal was shared with her last Wednesday, and she considers it a “non-starter.” Removing class size and special needs

support issues from union negotiations is unacceptable, she said. “It’s quite ludicrous that government would hold out a 10-year deal in trade for giving up bargaining rights that we have fought long and hard for in the courts,” Lambert told CKNW radio. “We fought a 10-year battle to achieve a decision that, yes, teachers have a constitutional right to bargain working conditions.” The union has another legal action in process, based on a precedent-setting ruling by the Supreme Court of Canada that

overturned parts of legislation passed by the B.C. Liberal government in 2002. That case is to go to B.C. Supreme Court next fall. Clark said the intent is to elevate discussion, not to achieve a long-term deal before the May election. “It’s not about helping the government, and it’s not about helping the union. It’s about helping the kids,” Clark said. “I know that’s a culture shift for many of the parties around the table, including the government, but we

have to do it.” Lambert said the timing of the government’s announcement is surprising, since the BCTF and B.C. Public School Employers’ Association have just reached their own tentative agreement on  new bargaining framework. To be voted on by executives of the school district bargaining agent and the BCTF, it includes a shared method for calculating costs. Last year’s teacher strike was marked by huge discrepancies in the costs of raises and other bargaining proposals.

Local filmmaker fundraising for new project The short horror/thriller film will showcase the Teague House in Yale

Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

The Teague House will be featured in a new short film by Brodi-jo Scalise. Scalise is directing The Vessel with a crew of about 20 people in early March at the historic site in Yale. The Teague House was built in 1864 and is currently run as a B&B by Fraser River Rafting. Scalise is in his last semester of filmmaking studies at Capilano University and felt it would be the ideal location for his final project. The Vessel is a horror/ thriller set in 1906 which follows Mary, a pregnant widow, who is plagued by visions of her dead husband until late one night when an unexpected guest arrives and offers her a solution.  Mary soon realizes that these terrifying visions may

United Way falls short we want to of campaign goal hear from you!

Vikki Hopes Black Press

For the first time in recent years, the United Way of the Fraser Valley (UWFV) has not met the fundraising goal for its annual campaign. Lori Masse, the charity’s director of resource development, said the agency has collected $796,000 toward its $875,00 goal. Last year, UWFV raised $827,000, just surpassing its $825,000 target. Masse said unless the additional funds are collected this year, the charities that the United Way supports will suffer. The organization covers the area from Aldergrove and Mission east to Boston Bar. It provides social service grants to 25 charities in areas such as early childhood success, homelessness and affordable housing, and poverty reduction. Groups supported by the United Way include Abbotsford Community Services, Abbotsford Peer Support, the Women’s Resource Society, and the Fraser Valley Child Development Centre. Masse speculated that one of the reasons funds are down, not only for the United Way but other local charities, is the ongoing impact of the economic downturn. “I think we’ve finally hit a wall where people are saying, ‘Things aren’t getting better,’ “ she said. Masse said an influx of people retiring from their jobs is also affecting the United Way’s fundraising goals. She said many of the agency’s largest donors have left their jobs and can no longer give as much, if any, money. People who are still

working are tending to put aside more funds toward their retirement and less to charitable giving. Meanwhile, the younger generation is racking up more debt than ever – from things such as education – and doesn’t have disposable income. Masse said another trend is that more and more people want to volunteer their time with a charity, rather than contribute funds. “All of a sudden, we’re being overwhelmed with people wanting to volunteer … They want to feel connected.” Masse said an ongoing challenge for UWFV is maintaining a profile in the community. Although many people are aware of the United Way, they don’t know it exists in the Fraser Valley. As an example, Masse said the United Way of the Lower Mainland raised an average of $11.90 per person in 2011, while the Fraser Valley branch collected $2.85. She said UWFV plans to launch a push to raise the remainder of the campaign goal. The campaign runs annually from September to December, and 79 per cent of the funds come from employee payroll deductions. Another 19.6 per cent is from corporate donations, while the remaining 1.4 per cent is from individuals contributing outside of a workplace program. UWFV is located in the Sweeney Neighbourhood Centre at Abbotsford Senior Secondary, 33355 Bevan Ave. To make a donation or for more information, call 604-852-1234 or visit the website uwfv.bc.ca.

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

‘Mr. Big’ brings down killers So-called “Mr. Big” stings have found increasing favour among police investigators for gaining convictions in serious criminal cases. Such was the case with the murder of Chelsey Acorn, a 14-year-old Abbotsford girl who ran afoul of a truly chilling father and son duo. Acorn went missing from her foster home on June 10, 2005. Her remains were found the following spring, in a shallow grave near the Coquihalla Highway near Hope. Taped confessions heard at the trials of Dustin Moir, now 27, and his father, Jesse West, suggested that the two men had strangled her, pushed her naked body into the hole they had dug, and then dropped a large rock on her head. Possible motives and other details of their heinous crime emerged as they confessed to a police officer posing as a crime boss. It’s a strategy that has taken down a number of killers and other criminals in recent years. Critics of the tactic call it unreliable, primarily because some people – as West himself claimed – will tell lies to impress someone they think is a key crime figure, to reap the benefits after they’re accepted into the fold. Fabricated evidence is a possibility. However, careful investigation will usually sift out the truth, particularly when there is more than one accused telling the tales. And ultimately, there will be a judge and/or jury to weigh the evidence in the context of arguments by defence and Crown. It has been suggested that Mr. Big stings should be rejected by the courts. And if that were so, the killers of an innocent 14-year-old girl would still be on the streets, and possibly taking more victims. That is an utter absence of justice. That is not an option. Thanks to good police work, Moir and West got what they deserved – life in prison with no parole for 25 years. - Black Press

New season for ‘School Wars’

Tom Fletcher Like a bad reality show about a dysfunctional family, B.C. School Wars has lurched to life again for the 2013 election. Coming soon to billboards and buses across the province: staged pictures of sad-faced kids crammed into dirty classrooms by a heartless government.  It doesn’t even matter which government. This ritual combat went on through Social Credit and NDP governments too. Premier Christy Clark opened the new season with her promised pitch to restructure bargaining. It suggested splitting up bargaining into traditional wage and benefit talks, and a separate table and fund for classroom size and support.

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

Cast in her familiar role of the sullen, rebellious teenager, BCTF president Susan Lambert staged a news conference to distort and mock the government’s offer. A 10-year deal if we give up bargaining wages and classroom conditions? “Ludicrous.” What’s ludicrous is her characterization of a formula to link teacher pay to nurses, post-secondary faculty and other government workers. Nurses are renowned for getting raises when no one else does, so this should be an opportunity for these powerful unions to co-ordinate. The BCTF can’t get along with other unions any more than it can negotiate with any discernible competence.  Lambert falsely claimed there was no consultation on the proposal. This reminded me how she low-balled the costs of her union’s demands by hundreds of millions during what passed for negotiations in last year’s strike season.

unless he replaces the hated B.C. Liberals in May, then quickly kneels before the BCTF and extends the key to the provincial treasury. Two generations of British Columbians have been bullied by this bad drama, since Bill Vander Zalm decided an industrial union bargaining structure was just the ticket for public schools. Students are taught by example, if not by blatant propaganda in classrooms, that all problems are solved by demanding more money from the government.

greeted as a declaration of war. The main reason the BCTF agreed to a contract extension with a wage freeze last year? It wasn’t the blindingly obvious fact that every other public sector union had already taken two zeroes. It was strictly tactics. The delay sets up the latest rematch of these old warriors in the spring election. The plan is to get the dreaded B.C. Liberals out and then start working over the weaker, more union-dependent NDP. That’s who caved in earlier and gave the BCTF broad control over staffing levels, the proverbial key to the treasury. Along with basic math and economics, a  point the  BCTF seems unable to grasp is that its strategy is self-defeating. Those sad kids are making more and more parents seek a better deal.  Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Exhibit showcases work from Art Machine

Another year has passed at the Hope & District Arts Council sponsored Art Machine located on 5th Avenue in Hope and what a spectacular year it has been. The facility now has eight pottery wheels funded through a New Horizon for Seniors Program. Seniors, 55 and older, have been making mugs, bowls and all sorts of wonderful turned pottery with the help of Billie Shauer, Jan Kinna and Diane Ferguson. Soon adults of every age will be able to ‘play’ with these wheels. In the meantime children, youth and adults are hand building clay items with instruction provided by Pamela McBride and Diane Ferguson. There will be a new electric kiln (donated by Farm Credit Canada) installed so that firing the clay creations can be done on site. Jan Kalinski, Jan Toland, Pamela McBride, John LeFlock with helper Melissa from Chilliwack, Andy Tucker and Diane Ferguson have been giving instruction on acrylic and watercolor painting, collage, drawing and sketching, art trading cards, papier mache and a variety of crafts. Ask any of the numerous people who attend these drop-ins and workshops what they think and

you’ll hear nothing but enthusiastic praise. Students Jessica Rhodes and Ally LeMay and senior Jane Pinter have been invaluable volunteers assisting with many of the children’s projects during the past year. One project worked on in 2012 was the papier mache sculpture called “Annabelle.” Over 50 youth, adults and seniors helped build a chicken wire foundation, cover it with strips of glue soaked paper and then painted her hat, dress, gloves, stockings and shoes. Local artist Linda Bishop volunteered to paint the face and did an excellent job. Annabelle now resides at the Hope Library, but will be spending the month of February at the Retrospect exhibit. Many of these finished works will be displayed in the back room of the Hope Arts Gallery on Fort Street in during the month of February. Aptly called “Retrospect Four” in recognition of the fourth year of the Art Machine project, a reception will be held Feb. 2 from 7-9 p.m. Many of the participants and instructors will be on site, so drop by for a chat, meet “Annabelle” and enjoy some refreshments.

It’s time for government to provide necessities also to money spent in our communities by various levels of our government. Due to the fact that we have so many levels – municipal, provincial and federal – it is easy for the regular taxpayer to get lost in the various financial statements. However, the statistic which has stated that about half  of a working person’s salary eventually ends up in the tax pot, should ring a

warning bell with most people.  Of course, many taxes are spread out on every action, product or usage that you can imagine, so that no one particular tax stands out. However on checking over my Hydro bills from about six years ago, I find that the basic bill increased by about 50 per cent, and now a further  notice that rates will increase in April 2013!  Of course

taxes are then based on the higher amounts as well. Truly another example of the saying “death by a thousand cuts,” and citizens should pay attention to every tax, before they “bleed to death” – certainly nobody got a wage increase of 50 per cent like Hydro over that short period of time.  Since our government must keep fairly detailed budgets, I

have an important question to ask: (a) How much have their budgets increased over the last two election periods (six or eight years),  and (b)  what is the total amount of  money donated to any groups, companies, etc. outside of Canada in those periods?  Since we are becoming  impoverished ourselves, it is time that various world governments begin to be

The overall winner of the 2012 Storytime in the Park contest was Deb Christina Mun- Ireland day’s “Leah’s OldNew Too-Big Boots” – a grand adventure of the one-booted Leah and her errant old-new too-big boot. Munday’s book will be given out as part of Storytime in the Park 2013 – another summer of family fun! At the book launch, Fraser-Cascade school district superintendent Karen Nelson opened with words of

appreciation to Bud Gardner and his contribution to literacy in our community. A community award was then presented to him by Christine Proulx. Gardner generously donates not only the Storytime van each year, but also covers the cost of the van’s insurance and maintenance throughout the summer. As an aside, Storytime in the Park has been a Hope tradition for a decade now. The program was started by Heather Stewin way back in 1993. A great big thank you to all the volunteers, companies and organizations who make the program such a huge success.

Every year, ABC Canada promotes Family Literacy Day on January 27. The theme this year was “15 Minutes of Fun.” Amazingly, just 15 minutes of fun family activity has a significant and positive impact on literacy skills! So what did we do on Family Literacy Day at the library? We had fun! Five young authors were on hand to launch their books (published by the Storytime in the Park Committee) by reading their stories to a proud audience of over 40 friends and family members. We have lots of terrific young writers in the Fraser Cascade area! Eli Tiessen’s “Eli the Explorer Goes to the Jungle” is the story of Eli and his friend Victor the Velociraptor. Well done, Eli! Guinevere Jaic read her “An Invitation from Chum,” a lovely story of Lucy and a fellow named Chum. This is a very clever story with quite the surprise ending.

So it’s pretty cool that Family Day lands on Feb. 11 - a whole day to have some family fun, either at home, or out and about. For ideas to do at home, I’ve just ordered a collection of boredom buster books into the library. You can order your own copies too – just look under the slightly quaint subject heading “Amusements.” These books should be arriving soon. If you want to spend Family Day out, Manning Park is offering 50 per cent off lift tickets. Or explore some trails in Hope, or have a winter picnic. Or maybe enjoy the day in the “Big City” – check out that new bridge, take in the Boat Show, or walk the seawall.

Sports Firefighters ready to face off against RCMP Annual Battle of the Badges match takes place at Hope Arena Feb. 9

Barry Stewart Hope Standard

On Feb. 9, the RCMP and Hope firefighters will be battling on the ice for local hockey supremacy. It’s year six of the annual clash — and after alternating wins and losses in the first three games, the firefighters gave the cops consecutive wins in the last two years.  It’s time for the smoke-eaters to extinguish their foes and tie the series at three apiece. Whatever the outcome, the kids helped by the Cops for Cancer program will be the big winners. “It’s all fun — but the guys take it seriously,” said RCMP Staff Sgt. Suki Manj on Monday. Manj grew up playing goalie in Duncan on Vancouver Island, but in this game he’ll be playing center. Hope fire chief Tom DeSorcy started playing hockey in Hope when the rink first opened in 1976 and eventually worked his way up to Zamboni driver... but he’ll be out of town when his comrades hit the ice. “It’s a full game: three 20-minute stop-time periods,” said DeSorcy, “and the players really feel it.” George Johnston, who had a full career with the RCMP, has now switched allegiances to the local fire department, where he works as a volunteer. He is a key organizer for the annual event, which is dubbed as the Tyler Wells Cup — named after a local teen who died of cancer at the age of 13. Tyler’s uncle, Richie Wells, often plays for the firefighters’ team. “An RCMP member, Jeff Wilson, was riding for  Cops for Cancer that first year and he was riding for Tyler before he passed away,” recalled Johnston. “I was a volunteer fireman and we thought we could organize a game as a fundraiser.” In addition to local firefighters, Johnston has made a few calls to bring in down-river talent.

He’s ex-military and he’s played all over the world,” said Johnston. Johnston and his wife Susan will soon be vacationing in Cuba and will be getting back to town

Johnston said he has his volunteer staff ready to go. “We’ve got Denise Pascucci, who has been our scorekeeper in every game and her husband Pas will be helping with the music and announcements. Ebi Fazzari will be back as head referee and Yana Bergen will be singing O Canada.” Ticket prices remain the same

as in past years: $20 for a family of four, $10 for adults and $5 for seniors and school-aged minors. Children aged five and under are free. Tickets are available at the Hope RCMP detachment, district hall, Romano’s, Lordco and Sixth Avenue Sports. Many of the local firefighters have access to tickets as well.
