Firefighters standby after extinguishing a fire inside a portable trailer at the corner of Nelson and Raab streets on Dec. 18.

Two local 14-year-old males have been arrested in connection with three fires last Wednesday. The first incident took place at about 6 a.m. on a property across from Memorial Park on Fourth Avenue. The fire started in a garage in between an abandoned house and neighbouring office/residential building. Both structures were destroyed in the fire, displacing a business and a resident living in the upstairs unit. Later that morning, an

employee at Hope Arena notified police that two plastic bins had been set on fire outside the rink and the back door of the Curling Club had been spray painted. The fire managed to extinguish itself before causing any further damage. While firefighters were still putting out hot spots underneath the debris on Fourth Avenue, the fire department and RCMP were called to a third fire at the corner of Nelson and Raab streets at about 4 p.m. Smoke was seen billowing from a portable trailer on the property when crews arrived on scene. Firefighters quickly knocked down the flames inside the structure and contained the fire to one unit. “Before the third fire, we were already on the trail of one of the individuals,” said Staff Sgt. Suki Manj. “We believe one of the youth was involved in three of the fires, and the second was only involved in the last one. Witnesses provided a description of the two individuals and we located and arrested them that night.” Police have recommended charges of arson and mischief for one youth, and arson for the other.

Kathleen Alexis has stepped up as acting president of the Hope & District Chamber of Commerce. She took over the position earlier this month after former president Glen Ogren stepped down for personal reasons. “There’s some medical issues that I want to get under control, which necessitated me stepping back and taking a less stressful role in the Chamber,” said Ogren, adding that he does plan to remain a board director. “It’s been challenging at times, but overall it’s been very rewarding. I appreciate people putting their trust in me over the last couple years to be the voice of the Chamber.” Ogren points out that during his two-

year term the board’s direction has been more business-focused through initiatives like the Idea Exchange and business seminars. He’s also been involved with the Chamber website redesign, community branding initiative, bringing the intermunicipal business licence program to Hope, and working on coordinating highway incident management for faster response times to accidents. Alexis will stay on as acting president until the next Chamber AGM and has already identified key areas to focus on. In addition to organizing events for the new year, she plans to work more closely with the B.C. Chamber of Commerce on issues that affect businesses locally and provincewide. Alexis also wants to

GET YOUR FLU SHOTS NOW AT PHARMASAVE • YOUR VACCINATION CENTRE We celebrate many birthdays in December. One that gets overlooked is Louis Pasteur, born on December 27 1822. He was a French bacteriologist who created a process for sterilizing milk to kill pathogens that could cause disease. He also developed a preventive inoculation against rabies. This early work on immunization has saved millions of lives throughout the generations. The human liver is a wonderful organ. It is the only

organ that has acetaldehyde dehydrogenase, the enzyme that breaks down alcohol. It does this job well at the rate of one standard drink per hour. Just a reminder, a standard drink is 12 oz of beer, 5 oz of wine or 1.5 oz of spirits. Had your Àu shot yet? It’s not too late. Have your children inoculated too. Remember, you can’t catch the Àu from the Àu shot. The more people who get the Àu shot, the less the virus will be spread.

Coconut water has gotten much publicity lately. It is made from the clear water inside the coconut, not the coconut Àesh from which we get coconut milk. Coconut water does contain some potassium (about 200mg per 100ml), is low in sodium and calories and contains primarily water which keeps you hydrated.

Hope senior Mustang Phoebe Nickerson tries to slow down alumnus Richelle Willick during the annual alumni game on Tuesday night. Anchored by two players who played for Hope Secondary well before the turn of the century, the grad team showed the high school girls that they can still get it done, with a decisive 70-26 win.

Grads edge out senior Mustangs Hope Standard

“Even though they beat us, we felt their support.” When a game can be played with smiles on many faces — and hugs after the match is over, you can see the true meaning of sport. Such was the case at the annual alumni games, last Tuesday night at Hope Secondary. Senior girls’ head coach, Jeff Kuhn, said that even though the grads whomped his team soundly, “They were very encouraging to our team. The girls had fun and I think we used it as a good learning experience. “This was my first alumni game and it was a lot of fun,” said Kuhn. “We were missing three players who, if they were there, would have made it a bit more competitive. There have been a lot of good players come through Hope and when you put them on one team, they are a force to be reckoned with.” School vice-principal Tammy Nazarchuk and Carmen Mitchell, who were Hope Mustangs in the 1980s, made use of their height advantage under the basket and Richelle Willick’s 13 points — and Hannah Sauvé’s 12 helped pace the grads to a 70-26 win. Morgann Steeves, who recalled being annually thrashed by the grads when she was in high school, enjoyed

being on the winning side and contributing 10 points. “How is it that the adults are so good, when they haven’t played in, like… forever?” wondered Mustangs point guard Mina Kim. She can come back as a grad next year and find out. The boys-to-men game followed at 8 p.m. The grads are usually pretty confident about beating the kids — but the high schoolers pushed back pretty well, not allowing any baskets in the first few minutes and only trailing by 10

at the half. The final score was not available by press time, though several people pegged it about a 20-point gap. Grad of 2006, Kyle Kjemhus said, “It was a lot of fun this year. We had a really positive group of guys and we worked well together. I thought Linden Willock, [cousin] Wilson Willock and Nick Pauls stood out from the pack with their play and sportsmanship. “I’m really proud of those guys, as I got to coach them a bit and get to know them while they were in high

school. They’ve all become great players and even better young men. The senior boys put up a good fight this year and they were very wellcoached.” Kjemhus’ wife, Taylor — also a 2006 grad — said, “It was great to play with so many people that I know from my years at HSS. Playing with girls that I coached or played with five or six years ago was really neat. “It was also a lot of fun having Tammy Nazarchuk and Carmen Mitchell out there with us. The game was competitive and I was impressed by the senior girls and how well they played together. I’m really looking forward to coming back again next year! “We both want to say thank you to Becca Arrowsmith who organized this year’s game. She put in a lot of work and the game couldn’t have happened without her,” added Taylor. Senior boys’ coach, Jake Giles said he was pleased with how his team played. “I think they felt more comfortable around those guys, as they’ve played against a lot of them in open gym time. We played good, intense ball.” Giles hopes to see more of the same when the season resumes after the Christmas break, with the boys hosting their Hoopfest on Jan. 10 and 11.

Opinion

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

Kids and booze ’Twas the week before Christmas and the bars, they were hopping, hoping to catch patrons who’d finished their shopping. When all of a sudden, what should appear, but B.C. liquor law changes for much cheaper beer. Old Mrs. Claus — or Premier Christy Clark — said “Happy hours for all, kids in pubs — what a lark!” The chorus was merry, “Common sense!” went the cheer, let’s have another round of that much cheaper beer. And the tots on the bar stools, their eyes all aglow, were sipping their milk with parents in tow. “A small whiskey chaser with my brew,” Dad did sing, while dear, gentle Mom shouted, “Singapore Sling.” Then as soon as the clock sounded the chime, the kids and their parents knew it was time. They hopped in the Caravan while slipping a fiver into the hands of their designated driver. Then we heard the brood exclaim as they drove out of sight, “Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!” - Black Press

Here’s the big idea of 2013 B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher One of Canada’s great entrepreneurial success stories in recent years is WestJet, the Calgarybased airline that is expanding across the country and taking on European routes. Clive Beddoe, the founding CEO of Westjet, was famous for helping the cabin crew tidy up the plane before getting off a flight. And the company is also known for its profit-sharing program, with all employees referred to as “owners” who have a stake in the success of the operation. I thought of this management approach when news emerged that the B.C. government was of-

fering public service unions a new kind of contract, with a five-year term and wage increases tied to improved economic growth. The surprising thing is that unions are accepting the idea, even though provincial growth must exceed the government’s independent economic forecast council projections before it can take effect in a given year. The generally non-militant Health Sciences Association was the first to recommend acceptance of a five-year agreement with only 5.5 per cent raises guaranteed. Then they were joined by negotiators for 51,000 health and social services employees, represented by the B.C. Government Employees’ Union and other unions that have long been adversaries of the B.C. Liberals. John Fryer, negotiator for the BCGEU going back to the epic

battles with Social Credit governments and now a professor at University of Victoria, wasn’t impressed when he heard the news. “These deals reflect what happens when public sector unions back the losing party in a provincial election,” he said. “Union bargaining power takes a trip down the pooper.” I think there’s more than that going on. Perhaps today’s union leadership is beginning to accept that its wage, benefit and pension arrangements look pretty good compared to the harsh reality of private businesses competing in a global economy. I asked Premier Christy Clark if this new approach is inspired by private-sector profit sharing. She agreed that is the model. “I think that’s a great principle for all of us to work from,” Clark said. “Until now, the growth of

Standard

public sector wages has been completely insulated from changes in the private sector. And this is the first time we’ve ever been able to successfully link those two things. At this point it’s still a small increment wage growth, but it’s a big change, and I hope we can continue to build on it.” From an employee perspective, it is indeed modest. If real gross domestic product increases one per cent beyond the independent forecast used in the provincial budget, employees get an additional half of one per cent raise for that year. Contrast this labour relations development with what’s happening on the federal scene. A classic confrontation is brewing between the Harper government and the Public Service Alliance of Canada. A key dispute is over sick days,

which the government estimates are averaging 18 a year. PSAC currently has 15 “bankable” sick days a year, which the union president refers to as a “negotiated right.” It takes me back to my first union job, where I was warned never to take just one sick day. We negotiated for two at a time, so always take two, the union rep told me. Implicit in this is the mindset that employees should give as little and take as much as possible. Looking through my files each December for the B.C. story of the year, I consider what is likely to matter five or 10 years from now.

American Cable Network National Geographic Channel picks up the U.S. rights to Highway Thru Hell from Beyond Distribution. A fire destroys a home on Marie Street. Flames are seen shooting from the trailer when three fire trucks and 10 firefighters arrive on scene. The homeowner was not injured, but several pets perish inside.

10 signs funded by the local Rotary Club have been stolen in the last six months. Earl Rowe, Hans Jeschek and Richard Zervini receive Queen Elizabeth ll Diamond Jubilee medals for their service to the community and Canada. A 58-year-old Boston Bar man is arrested in connection with a marijuana grow-op. Police seize 91 harvested plants, along with six to seven pounds of bud in the drying phase, from a home on Gibson Road. Police are looking for two men involved in a home invasion in the Silver Creek Trailer Park in Hope. According the RCMP, the suspects entered the home 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 other items of value to the victim.

Hope is one step closer to having a new residential zone legalizing secondary suites after council gives third reading to an amendment bylaw that permits single family residential and secondary suite use on the same parcel of land.
