The four contenders for the Chilliwack-Hope riding faced off in a debate on Monday night, hosted by the Hope & District Chamber of Commerce. Among the issues discussed were debt reduction, poverty and environmental protection. BC Conservative Party candidate Michael Henshall addressed the audience first holding up a ball and chain with $57 billion written on it representing the provincial government’s debt. “You can’t tax and spend people into prosperity. Look at Greece as

a recent example – you end up bankrupt and this is the direction that B.C. is heading right now and we have a plan to turn it around,” said Henshall, pointing out that thousands of people have been leaving the province in the last few years to work in Alberta and Saskatchewan. “When we raise our taxes too high, it makes our products uncompetitive with jurisdictions around us. We need to reduce our taxes, actually get business going and bring back good paying jobs to British Columbia.” Henshall said legislative reform is needed and his party would have committees scrutinize gov-

ernment expenditures annually during the fall sitting. Laurie Throness, who is running for the BC Liberals, asked voters to be fair and objective when looking at the government’s record. He acknowledged that his party has made mistakes, but said the Liberals have apologized and paid for them in many ways. “Look at the big picture,” said Throness. “We have balanced our budget, we have a triple-A credit rating, personal and corporate taxes are among the lowest in Canada, we have relatively low debt load proportionate to the federal government and we have a plan to pay off our debt.”

Independent candidate Ryan McKinnon pointed out that there’s inefficiencies and unnecessary spending in government, particularly in the Ministry of Children and Family Development. As a major champion for child protection reform, he said some of that money could be better spent on economic stimulus, and services for mothers and fathers that are losing their children. “Money is going to the wrong areas,” said McKinnon. “There’s too much fat that needs to be trimmed.” Continued on 3

Chilliwack-Hope contenders debate local issues

When it comes to the environment, the candidates said they would oppose a garbage incinerator in the Fraser Valley and would like to see public input considered before making oil pipeline decisions. Henshall pointed out that the long-term economic and environmental benefits of pipelines need to be examined. “Everybody has concerns when you’re talking oil and water,� added BC NDP candidate Gwen O’Mahony. “Right now we don’t have a say over pipelines in B.C. That decision is made in Ottawa. We need a made-in-B.C. process.� O’Mahony pointed out that her party would invest carbon tax revenue, which is currently “being used to give tax breaks to corporations,� into transit infrastructure and building a greener economy. The NDP also would pass a poverty reduction strategy, which includes a B.C. Family Bonus, building 1,500 affordable housing units each year by leveraging the existing $250 Housing Endowment Fund, and tying income assistance to inflation. “Change takes time, one practical step at a time, but it can be accomplished,� she said.

With summer fast approaching, Hope RCMP would like to remind residents that there will be increased police presence in the Hope area, especially during long weekends.  The Hope detachment is teaming up with Fraser Valley Traffic Services and the Fraser Valley Integrated Road Safety Unit to step up enforcement of federal and provincial laws. Officers will concentrate on keeping highways safe from distracted drivers, inconsiderate drivers, and defective vehicles. Roadblocks will also be set up around Hope and Boston Bar. Having traffic members working in Hope during the typical busy policing season allows the Hope detachment to focus on dealing with calls for service and conducting proactive patrols to curb property crime. Hope RCMP will also continue working with Hope Crime Prevention Society this summer. The non-profit group is involved with Speed Watch, Block Watch, Citizens on Patrol, and patrols at Othello Tunnels.

Helping Others Pursue Excellence (H.O.P.E.) Project is an adult dropin centre run by the Hope & Area Transition Society in the SOCIA building on Third Avenue. It’s designed to increase accessibility for clients, promote social inclusion and reduce redundancy among services so that time, energy and funding can be better focused on client needs in order to provide holistic treatment. “As service providers and as clients, we have said for years we need a place for people to come and feel a sense of belonging, purpose and gained opportunities,” said Gerry Dyble, executive director of the Hope & Area Transition Society. “When grant funding became available through the Community Action

A6 Hope Standard Thursday, May 9, 2013

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

Paying to visit America wants to charge us for the privilege of visiting. The Department of Homeland Security recently proposed a crossing fee for visitors traversing America’s northern and southern borders. The fee would help the department pay for the ever-increasing cost of keeping Americans safe. And with a deficit already more than a trillion dollars combined with the indefatigable sense of paranoia that has gripped many of that country’s legislators since the terror attacks of 9-11, that cost is becoming onerous. So why not hit up people crossing the border to buy a brick of cheese or fill up the gas tank in their car, or spending thousands of dollars on vacation to California? After all, income tax was supposed to be a temporary measure, and eventually everyone just became resigned to it as a lessthan-beloved necessity. A border tax isn’t a new idea. It gets floated every few years and is inevitably shot down by strong lobbying from border states that dread the hit their economies would take if Canadians decided it would be just as cheap to buy their cheese at home. With the aftermath of the Boston Marathon bombings still fresh, it’s a tempting source of revenue; charging the 350 million travelers who cross into the United States every year a few bucks every time they go through a border station would buy a lot of X-ray screeners and bomb sniffing wands. Not to mention pay the inflated salaries and pensions of bureaucrats who cook up and administer such programs. But those travelers contribute $21 billion each year to the American economy, according to the Department of Foreign Affairs. Even chipping away a bit of that would be devastating to a lot of gas station operators, hotels and grocery stores. - Black Press

NDP to voters: trust us

B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher When Adrian Dix took over as B.C. NDP leader two years ago, he struggled to communicate, especially in the sound bites of radio and TV. There was a running joke in the legislature press gallery: It didn’t matter what question you asked him, you got a six-minute answer that ended with the evils of log exports. Even more than under Carole James, the NDP railed against log exports. “B.C. logs for B.C. jobs” became one of Dix’s favourite slogans. As the election approached, another Dixism was heard daily: “Say what you’re going to do, say

OFFICE HOURS Tuesday - Friday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

how you’re going to pay for it.” So it was a surprise a few weeks ago when the NDP signaled it would essentially not offer a policy on log exports. They’re going to meet with “stakeholders” and come up with a plan after they get a majority government. This is exactly the same nonpolicy the NDP had in 2009. They don’t have an answer to the industry’s point that the high price gained by premium logs in foreign markets is what keeps many loggers working, and subsidizes the harvest of other logs for B.C. coastal mills. Another thing the NDP doesn’t like is private power development. This issue featured prominently in the NDP leadership contest two years ago.   Leadership contender Mike Farnworth told the party faithful he would study independent

power purchase contracts, and if he found that they are not in the public interest, he would “mend them or end them.” Another leadership hopeful, energy critic John Horgan, allowed that he would “break” contracts if necessary. By this spring, Dix had a new non-position on power purchase contracts. He will “assess them and address them.” The printed platform promises a review “within the limits of existing contracts.” Either they plan to risk a costly legal battle, or they’re just paying lip service. All you have to do to find out is elect them. Labour code changes are another blank slate. A memo from the B.C. Federation of Labour executive to members last year described how they were working closely with the NDP to rewrite B.C. labour law. The NDP election platform

Standard

punts this issue until after the election as well, promising an independent expert panel to decide on issues like whether to end secret-ballot votes for union certification. This isn’t just a bad idea, it’s a 30-year-old bad idea. It’s based on the destructive old notion that employers are the enemy of workers, and only a union can protect them. The long decline of union membership in the private sector isn’t caused by employer bullying or secret-ballot votes that protect employees’ freedom of choice. The cause is global competition. The only protection workers have from that is their own efficiency. Balancing the budget? An NDP government will strive to do that over “the business cycle,” says finance critic Bruce Ralston. Oldtimers might remember this one. It’s taken from the NDP’s 1991

Whatever was left of that dusty, faded picture was erased with the financial collapse of 2008. If you still believe in a predictable “business cycle,” you may be willing to accept that an NDP-led B.C. will become the first jurisdiction in human history to eliminate poverty, by setting annual targets and paying out borrowed money to low-income parents.

Letters Consider consequences of your vote

Hope Standard Thursday, May 9, 2013 A7

Editor’s note: Gwyn Morgan is the former chair of SNC Lavalin, and is a director on the boards of several other large corporations including EnCana Corporation. He has served as an advisor to Christy Clark. I’m concerned that many British Columbians are more focused on “change” for the sake of change rather than electing the party most likely to foster job creation and financial stability. Our province’s resource endowment has always been a mainstay of both jobs and the generation of revenues needed to fund social programs. From what I have seen and heard, an NDP government would rev-up spending while stymieing resource development through endless environmental reviews and or by just saying “no,” driving investment to other provinces and other countries. We need new mines and gas fields, pipelines, refineries, ports and pro-

cessing plants to replace jobs lost by tech change and by events like the pine beetle catastrophe. Economic development and the protection of the environment are not mutually exclusive. Yes, we must be good stewards of our beautiful province, but we do have the technology to move the economy forward in an environmentally responsible manner. Saying no to new projects will mean job losses for currently employed and no opportunity for young people looking to join the work force. We also need to focus on balancing the provincial budget, rather than taking money away from social programs to fund rising interest costs. Forty years of experience in business has taught me that too much debt is crippling. It scares me that the NDP have rolled out billions of dollars in new spending during this campaign, and

their “every dollar is accounted for” rhetoric just isn’t credible because their anti-development attitude will reduce revenue at the same time as spending rises. There is truth to the adage, “Those who fail to learn from history are doomed to repeat it.” The NDP came to power in 1991 and governed the rest of that decade. Investment dried up and economic growth trailed the rest of Canada. A low point came when the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce thanked the B.C. government for driving growth investment in Alberta. Glenn Clark’s 1996-1999 tenure was arguably the most disastrous for B.C. and with Adrian Dix, Premier Clark’s former chief of staff leading the province, I’d be very worried about history repeating itself. It took many years for the Liberals to repair the damage. During their time in government, North America

suffered through a major recession and yet we now have a triple-A credit rating, higher than the U.S. government, allowing B.C. taxpayers the lowest possible interest rates Have the Liberals done everything right? Certainly not. The introduction of the HST by the Campbell government was badly handled. There have been other gaffes and ill thought out policies. And while there is a natural inclination for people to vote to change long governing parties, it’s important not to let the NDP sleepwalk to victory without thinking about which party is likely to create jobs and not burden today’s young people with a mountain of debt. I’m not asking that you agree with me, only that you think through the full consequences of your choice carefully. And then get out and vote on May 14. Gwyn Morgan

Local automotive work is ‘exceptional’

Hope Auto Body owner Kevin Pole (right) recently completed body and interior restoration work on Ken Burnett’s 1964 Thunderbird. Canyon Automotive did the mechanical restoration.

I live in North Vancouver and my partner of many years, Maureen Wood, lives in Hope. In 2005 we visited the family farm in Rickreall, Oregon. Aunt Ruby, some 90 years old, still managed the farm on the basis of leasing the land to other farmers. Way out in the “back forty” was a three-story, broken down, almost as old as Ruby, barn. Out of curiosity, I asked cousin Raymond to take me out to the barn.   We climbed through brambles and blackberries and to my amazement in the barn was storage for seven 1960s cars.

do. The mechanical restoration was completed by Canyon Automotive - Jeremy, Brad and Cam. The body and interior restoration was done by Hope Auto Body - Kevin and his team.

erty Transfer Tax for home buyers. The Property Transfer Tax (PTT) consists of one per cent charged on the first $200,000 in property value and two per cent after that. The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) wants the next provincial government to raise the threshold where the two per cent tax level starts to apply to $525,000. That would mean a $600,000 home currently charged $10,000 in PTT each time it changes hands would instead be charged $6,750, saving buyers $3,250. “While the PTT is not top of mind in most people’s daily lives, when the time comes to purchase a home this tax becomes a significant burden for home buyers in B.C. to shoulder,” REBGV president Sandra Wyant said. She said the PTT was introduced as a wealth tax 26 years ago –  when just five per cent of Metro Vancouver homes sold for more than $200,000 – but its threshold has remained unchanged and rising home values have made many more homes subject to the two per cent portion. It’s an admirable idea, says Canadian Taxpayers Federation B.C. director Jordan Bateman. But he’s not holding

his breath for any political party to change the PTT, which raises $700 million to $1 billion a year for the province, depending on the volume of real estate sales. “Political parties will talk about the PTT, complain about it, until of course it’s election time and then they go absolutely stealthily silent on it,” Bateman said. Victoria has rejected previous suggestions from TransLink that part of the PTT raised from Metro Vancouver support transit upgrades here. Bateman said the tax drives up the already high cost of housing in the region. “It’s a perfect example of a tax that’s grown out of control,” he said. “The Property Transfer Tax is such easy money the government never tinkered with it and became reliant on it.” The REGBV released an Ipsos Reid poll it commissioned showing 58 per cent of B.C. residents think the PTT puts an unfair tax burden on home buyers compared to other groups. The PTT has also been controversial recently because businesses and wealthy individuals are increasingly avoiding paying the tax by holding real estate within a bare trust corporation and selling that shell company to the new buyer.

Some new phone customers in B.C. may be issued a number with the province’s new 236 area code starting June 1. The new area code covers the entire province and was approved by the CRTC to ensure residents and businesses have enough phone numbers. Customers who get a new phone number may be able to choose from existing 604, 778 or 250 area codes where enough of those numbers exist. If those options aren’t available a 236 number will be issued. Geographic boundaries that govern long-distance calling are not affected. Plans for the new area code were announced in 2011 in response to the explosive growth in wireless device use, depleting the supply of available phone numbers within B.C.’s existing area codes.

Y E H NDP keeps ‘wiggle IDS! K room’ on oil pipeline Jeff Nagel Black Press

Despite repeated questioning on oil exports this election, B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix still won’t explicitly rule out a twinning of the Kinder Morgan oil pipeline through B.C. Dix announced his party’s stance against a “massive expansion of oil tankers” through Vancouver harbour on Earth Day, to much applause from environmentalists who interpreted it as a rock-solid ‘No’ to Kinder Morgan. But two days later NDP energy critic John Horgan told Black Press the NDP doesn’t reject the pipeline twinning project outright and would wait to see how Kinder Morgan might revise its plan, possibly using a different terminal. Dix then rejected any other Metro Vancouver terminal, such as Deltaport, which Horgan had suggested the company might propose. The NDP leader was grilled in both the radio and TV leaders’ debates on the possibility Kinder Morgan might propose bending the new pipeline south from Abbotsford to a terminal in Washington State, avoiding Vancouver. Both times Dix stuck to his position against Metro Vancouver becoming as an oil superport without issuing a blanket pipeline rejection. “What I say ‘no, period’ to is transforming

the ports of Metro Vancouver into major oil export ports,” Dix said when asked in an interview Wednesday why he doesn’t fully reject the twinning. “That increase in oil tankers off our coast is not in our economic and environmental interest and I’m against it.” Dix said Kinder Morgan is free to submit its formal pipeline application and said he has laid out clearer parameters than the B.C. Liberals’ “trust us” stance on new oil pipelines. Asked if he sees any potential gamechanging re vision to the pip eline proposal that makes it more attractive by reducing risk or adding benefits, he said no. On the notion of an alternate terminal, Dix said changing the launch point of tankers a few nautical miles “doesn’t make a significant amount of difference.” Not everyone is convinced. “I think they’ve got some wiggle room,” B.C. Green Party leader Jane Sterk. “I think they could argue that if the tankers are going down south of the border, it’s not in B.C. waters.” Nor does B.C. Yukon Building and Construction Trades Council executive director Tom

Sigurdson yet take the NDP’s position as a definitive rejection of the Trans Mountain pipeline twinning. “For us, we’re moving as though there’s a possibility,” he said, adding representatives for unionized workers remain in talks with pipeline builders on the hope thousands of construction jobs will materialize, even under an NDP government. “We continue our discussions as though something may happen.” Husky Energy’s CEO has also predicted “extreme” antipipeline rhetoric will subside after the election. T h e $5.4-billion pipeline project from Alberta to the Lower Mainland would nearly triple the amount of oil flowing to 890,000 barrels per day and send hundreds more tankers through coastal waters. The issue resurfaced earlier this week when former B.C. Liberal leader turned NDPer Gordon Wilson endorsed Premier Christy Clark and the BC Liberals, in part citing the NDP’s position on Kinder Morgan. Wilson said the NDP sought to woo Green voters while Horgan secretly met with Kinder Morgan to assure the firm an NDP government would still be ready to deal after the election.

While the NDP has consistently opposed Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline plan, Dix had previously said it was premature to take a position until Kinder Morgan tables a formal proposal. B.C. Liberal energy minister Rich Coleman also called Horgan’s April 23 meeting with Kinder Morgan an attempt at a “wink-wink, nudgenudge” message to the company that a deal may still be possible. But Coleman said the NDP’s allbut-total rejection – even before a formal proposal is made – will “scare away investment” and send the message the province is closed to business. “If it’s ‘no’ at the beginning, why would you bother starting?” SFU marketing professor Lindsey Meredith said it made perfect sense for the NDP to stake out a position against more oil tanker shipments through Burrard Inlet, given the concentration of concerned voters there. And he said it likewise makes sense to keep the door open a crack to a different, less contentious terminal because B.C. still needs jobs and oil pipeline revenue. He said Deltaport or a Washington terminal “may well turn out to be do-able.” Meredith predicts an NDP victory will spur Kinder Morgan to busily rework the twinning proposal with a different outlet.

Election issue: health care privatization Tom Fletcher Black Press

NDP leader Adrian Dix has promised to repeal the remainder of Bill 29, the legislation that broke union contracts and allowed contracting out of health support services early in the B.C. Liberal term of government. Parts of that legislation were struck down in a 2007 ruling by the Supreme Court of Canada, and the government was forced to pay compensation and consult with unions before any further contracting out of services. In a pre-campaign interview with Guardian, the Hospital Employeesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Union magazine, Dix made no specific commitments. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are going to need to improve and strengthen the public role if we are going to continue to provide a high level of service, given the federal cuts that are coming to health care in 2014-15,â&#x20AC;? Dix told the HEU publication. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not really cuts. After a string of six-per-cent increases, the growth of health care transfers is capped at four per cent starting next year. After signing a series of â&#x20AC;&#x153;net zeroâ&#x20AC;? contracts with various public service unions in the past year, the B.C. Liberals tabled an election budget proposing to hold

Fundraiser at Rona for the Tillicum Centre

Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

Tillicum Centre will be hosting its annual hot dog fundraiser at Rona this Saturday. Cooper’s Foods is supplying the hot dogs and Rona is providing the beverages, buns and barbecue. All food and drinks can be purchased by donation. “It’s our biggest one-day sale of the year and to have them do their hot

dog fundraiser that day, they’ll get the most traffic,” said store manager Ebi Fazzari, pointing out that May 11 is Rona’s scratch and save sale. “The more money they have to work with, the more programs they can run.” Rona has been a big supporter of Tillicum Centre over the years. Five clients are currently employed by the home improvement store. Each person works a two-hour shift every week.

“We try and include them in everything,” said Fazzari. “It’s a big benefit for us because they get to things that we don’t have time to do and it’s good for them socially. We try and be as involved in the community as we can. We’d like to do more, but unfortunately like everybody else there’s been budget cutbacks.” The hot dog fundraiser takes place on May 11 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. in Rona’s front parking lot.

New business adds to local health options

Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

Elsie Meyers hopes her new business will help ease people’s muscle tension and encourage relaxation. She has been practicing reflexology for over 25 years, and is also trained in specialized kinesiology, advanced Bowen techniques, Swedish massage, raindrop therapy and emotional freedom therapy. After recently moving to Hope from Medicine Hat, Alta., she realized the potential for such services in town and decided to open Healthpoints Reflexology & Kinesthetics. “I wanted to be a compliment to the other massage therapists and activities

here,” said Meyers. “Hope seems to be an area where people are really concerned about getting back to nature and doing things in a natural way. So the techniques I use enable the body to help itself. It’s like turning on switches.” Long-term stress can result in many chronic conditions including heart disease, chronic depression, high blood pressure, migraine headaches, digestive disorders, and arthritis. Meyers uses techniques based on traditional Chinese medicine to help prevent or alleviate the effects of these conditions. “I do a lot of work on the neck and shoulder area to relieve the stress of working on computers. When

you’re sitting in a stationary position at computers for hours, usually the neck muscles shorten because we’re looking down,” said Meyers. “If it isn’t addressed early, it can progress to bigger issues. It’s important for all body health.” Reflexology is a gentle compression technique that stimulates the reflexes on the feet, hands, ears and head. Meyers said these reflexes help the body function more effectively. Kinesthetics, on the other hand, is the movement of muscles. Meyers pointed out that one of the most effective methods of improving movement is by means of Bowen Technique. The soft tissue tech-

nique was developed by Dr. Tom Bowen, an Australian chiropractor for the Australian soccer team in the 1970s. This method of “cross-fiber” movement of muscle addresses proprioceptors in the muscles. Cellular memory is affected during the session of muscle movement, followed by a brief “resting” time as the muscles reposition. Healthpoints Reflexology & Kinesthetics operates out of the Hope Chiropractic Care Centre (314 Hudson Bay St.) Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. Sessions are covered under some extended health benefit packages. For more information, visit healthpoints-hope. com or call 604-869-0555.

an 8,000 kilometre cycle ride across Canada to raise funds and awareness for mental health. The ride was launched by The Kelty Patrick Dennehy Foundation, which was established following the loss of Ginny and Kerry Dennehy’s 17-year-old son. Since then, they have raised more than $5 million to combat mental illness, helping to finance projects such as Lions Gate Hospital and building a Kelty Mental Health Resource Centre at B.C. Children’s Hospital. The rally takes place at 5 p.m. on May 14 at Unit D - 895 3rd Ave. Participants can hear the Dennehy’s personal story, meet the Enough is Enough ride team, and share their own stories about mental health and the importance of resources. Suicide continues to be the second leading cause of death for Canadian youth – the third highest rate in the industrialized world. Depression is forecast to be the second leading cause of disability by 2020. Although up to 70 percent of mental health problems begin during childhood, less than a quarter of those affected have access to the services they need. All money raised during the Enough is Enough ride will stay in the province.

Bluesman plays at benefit concert for Harrison Festival The Harrison Festival Society is looking for support, and the best way to lend a hand is by joining them in welcoming Jim Byrnes to the stage, May 11. The legendary bluesman will headline the second annual Harrison Festival Society fundraiser, along with his band with special guests The Sojourners. This event will provide much needed support to the Harrison Festival Society as well as offer a great evening of entertainment.  For 35 years the Harrison Festival Society has brought the best in world music and art to the upper Fraser Valley.  This is their only major fundraising event each year and they count on the proceeds to keep their events and activities happening.

SUBMITTED PHOTO

Jim Byrnes will perform in Harrison Hot Springs on May 11.

In addition to the music the evening will include a silent auction, raffle and door prizes.  Appetizers and refreshments will be served.

A multiple Juno Award winner, Byrnes is one of Canada’s best known bluesmen and always puts on a great show in Harrison.  The Sojourners, originally

put together to back up Byrnes on his award winning album House of Refuge, have gone on to become an indemand group.  Their music captures echoes of doo wop, R&B, country and blues woven together with gospel to create a unique sound. Tickets to the event are $75 plus tax. A $30 tax receipt will be issued with each ticket. With the purchase of eight tickets your table will be reserved; all other seating is general admission. Join the Festival Society for an evening of fun with blues and gospel music in the Harrison Memorial Hall Saturday, May 11 starting at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are available by calling 604 796-3664 or online at www.harrisonfestival.com.

Basketball program off to a good start Barry Stewart Hope Standard

BARRY STEWART / THE STANDARD

Hope’s first-ever edition of Steve Nash Youth Basketball is off to an encouraging start, with 30 boys and girls registered and attending regularly. Grace Baptist’s senior pastor Jeff Kuhn heads up the group, acting as the girls’ manager, while youth pastor Jake Giles is the boys’ manager. “We’ve got 17 girls and 13 boys,” said Kuhn on Monday. “I’m pretty happy with that, as it’s enough to get a couple of teams each. “Everybody gets equal playing time, too,” he added. “At this age, that’s very important, as you never know who is going to develop the most. “Forty players would have been ideal for me,” he figured, “but we’re just starting out — so if we’re going to make mistakes, it’s better to be making them now, than if we had 100 players.” Kuhn is already looking ahead to next year, even though this season is only half-done, ending on June 13. “We’d like to have a Grade 4-5 and 6-7 league next year, if we can get at least 20 in each,” he said. “Even now, it’s a big stretch for the Grade 5s to play against the Grade 7s — especially with some of the Grade 7 girls being so tall.” Kuhn and Giles support the teams at arm’s length, leaving the coaching to other community members. “If a ball goes flat, we’ll be the ones to pump it up,” he said. For coaches, Kuhn has gone back to the Mustang corral for five of the nine volunteers. Linden Willock is the most recent Mustang alumnus to help out. There’s also Ben Brouwer, Thomas Walter, Heather Peters and Cindy Talarico. “We’ll be developing good coaching, through this program,” said Kuhn. “The high school relies on community

members to help coach their teams — so we’ll be helping support their program. Six to eight high school students come out and help with the practice sessions, then run the score clock on game nights. “It’s a great group of volunteers,” added Kuhn. “They are sometimes more excited than the players. “At our last games, the parents were in the stands, teasing the refs about the calls and cheering on the players,” said Kuhn. “It felt like home, to me. It was good to see.” Games are played with 20-minute halves — and the clock keeps running, though each team can have up to three stop-time time-outs in a game.  It’s developmental learning, said Kuhn, so they don’t come down too heavy on the rules at this point. “If a player does a doubledribble, we’ll stop the game and teach the rule — then give the ball back to the player and play on,” he said. Hope Secondary School makes the gym available for the group’s Monday and Thursday sessions, for which Kuhn is grateful. Since the school’s indoor sports end around spring break, there’s more floor time available now.  “There’s lots of other school and community use for the gym — but I’d like to expand from our 13 to 16 or 18 sessions,” said Kuhn. “We’ll do an evaluation at the end of the season and plan for next year.” Kuhn said he thought Blue Moose Coffee House would be a good, central place to run their registration nights from, so he got permission from owner, Wes Bergmann. The arrangement turned out to have a fringe benefit.  “The Blue Moose donated a ball for every kid,” said Kuhn. “It’s kind of fun to see kids out in the community, practicing because they have their own ball. They’re red and white, so we know where they came from.”
