ROCKIN' COUNTRY NEW YEAR'S EVE PARTY

Senior Mustangs fall to alumni teams

Barry Stewart Hope Standard

Over 100 spectators were in the stands for the annual Hope Secondary alumni games last Thursday evening. Some were parents of the grads — a few with grandkids in tow — coming back to the gym where they’d spent many hours cheering on their sons or daughters. Others were parents, siblings or friends of the current players. All were out to support the school’s basketball program and have some pre-Christmas fun. Madison Kuhn, who graduated last year, was the event organizer. “I was thrilled with how the games went,” she said. “We raised $600 which will be divided between the senior

boys and girls basketball teams, and will help to pay for tournament costs.” Spectators were invited to make cash donations at the entry door and that’s where most of the funds were raised — but there was also a toonie toss during the intermission, which raised another $170. Local businesses were generous with the prizes they offered, said Kuhn. Participants were given identifying stickers for their toonies and they tossed, rolled or slid their coins toward the prize cones. Closest coins were the winners. “It’s always fun to have the alumni — and now I am one — play against the currents teams,” added Kuhn. “It gives a good opportunity for the se-

nior teams to practice some of their plays in a setting that is fun, and gives the alumni a good chance to get together and support our teams. This was a great event and we hope it will continue to grow and expand in years to come.” Senior girls’ coach — and Madison’s dad — Jeff Kuhn said he felt it was a very successful night… despite ending up on the lower end of a lopsided score in the women’s game. “I told my girls that everyone was going to play, so get out there and have fun. “We wanted to give the community a fun experience and contribute to a good feel for basketball in the community. My girls just love playing against their teacher and vice-principal, Tammy Nazarchuk.” Nazarchuk played for HSS in the 1980s and she contributed six points in Thursday’s game, as did teammates Taylor Kjemhus, and 2014 grad Jaimie Peters. Jaclyn McNicol netted eight points and Hannah Jarvis set the pace with a dozen from the floor. “I asked Hannah ‘Where was that game when you were in Grade 12?’ and she just laughed!” said coach Kuhn. In the men’s game, the grads got off to a quick start, giving them a 10-point lead

that they would need at the end. Linden Willock, 2010 grad, led the way for the men with 13 points — but senior Mustang Blake Deschenes was on fire, scoring 16 points… 12 of them from outside the 3-point line. Deschenes and Manee Warren (10 points) helped the Mustangs win the next two quarters but the grads got back on track to seal the win at 42-30. Senior boys’ coach, Jake Giles, had some time on the court with his squad during the game and said he was really happy with their effort. “The guys are learning to play with confidence, which is what we need.” The boys travel to Barriere for a tournament on Jan. 9 and 10, then host a nine-team Hoopfest on the Jan. 16-17 weekend.

YOUR VACCINATION CENTRE We often hear stories about the good and bad effects about consuming coffee. One idea that hasn’t been scienti¿cally proven but looks retrospectively at large groups of people worldwide. There is a link between drinking coffee and reducing the risk of type 2 diabetes. It doesn’t seem to matter if the coffee is decaf or not but it is recommended that the coffee be drunk with little or no sugar and milk. E-cigarettes are not legal in Canada but in countries where they are, there has been a signi¿cant increase in the number

of youth who have never smoked start to use this new device. This group was almost twice as likely to start smoking regular cigarettes than those who never used e-cigarettes. That’s a concern to health professionals because nicotine is an addictive drug and can have adverse effects on the adolescent brain. There has been much in the media lately about vitamins and whether they are worth the money. One supplement that is worth it is the one to help minimize age-related macular degeneration (AMD). AMD can

lead to blindness, but good scienti¿c studies have show that formulas containing zinc, lutein and other products can help prevent this serious eye problem. Our pharmacists can clarify which is the best combination.

She’s currently looking for donations to help pay for the first batch of tshirts, which will be sold for $10 each. “People are hungry all the time, not just at the holidays,” said Prest, who has volunteered for The Josh-

ua Project and seen first-hand the need in Hope. “One meal changes the way a person thinks, feels, it changes their attitude, it changes the way they work. It’s a simple thing and it doesn’t cost much.” For more information about the Hope 4 Hunger initiative, call Prest at 604-749-7122 or email tanyaprest@gmail.com

A new initiative has been launched in Hope to help eradicate hunger. Tanya Prest founded Hope 4 Hunger, a non-profit organization, to support The Joshua Project and local schools. “I’m a single mom and the Joshua Project has fed us, helped us and supported us in our long journey,” she said. “I just decided that I wanted to do something for them. It’s important to me since they’ve done so much for us.” Prest is raising money for her cause through monthly meals on the third Saturday of every month. It’s an opportunity for people to come together for a meal, volunteer or make a donation. The first meal, a chilli and hot dog lunch, was held on Dec. 20 at Northwest Harvest Church. The next one will take place on Jan. 24. Prest’s goal is to raise $10,000 to donate to the Joshua Project as well as feed 2,000 children a hot lunch by the end of 2015. In addition to

The perils of a ‘parallel state’ Re: Nisga’a prove their critics wrong (B.C. Views, Dec. 4). Tom Fletcher seems to have had an epiphany that’s led to his urging acceptance of Supreme Court of Canada rulings which enabled the creation by the Nisga’a Nation of (Fletcher’s words) “a parallel state” in B.C. Fletcher may never have learned “that two wrongs don’t make a right.” The first long-standing wrong at issue is the sorry treatment of aboriginals in both B.C. and across Canada. Despite significant improvements over recent years, more remains to be done. The second wrong is that the Supreme Court of Canada now enables a new layer of government in B.C. What’s been created is a “landed gentry” of sorts who’ve in effect received authority to exercise sovereign powers, and they now plan to establish multiple export-enabling LNG terminals on the B.C. coast.

low such developments with interest, particularly if there is no parallel commitment by the Nisga’a to assume increasing responsibility for both federal and provincial government services as their “parallel state” business plans prove profitable. The old adage that “there’s only one taxpayer” could, with Nisga’a concurrence remain a truism. It’s based on the realization that whether for services provided by local, provincial or federal governments, most voters and elected leaders have long recognized that it’s the voting taxpayer who, over time, determines both government funding levels and program

priorities. Unanswered questions include: Will this aboriginal “parallel state” acknowledge a responsibility to – within its anticipated capability – participate as a fully functional entity within our national federation? Will it fund a portion of the many provincial and federal government services it now receives? Will it commit to creating and funding its self-determined unique government service programs? Historical antipathy between First Nation, local, provincial and federal agencies indicates a need for strong but flexible leadership at all four governmental levels. In seeking a comprehen-

Hunters protest new regulations

THANK YOU

TO EVERYONE WHO SUPPORTED US IN OUR FIRST YEAR OF BUSINESS!

Tom Fletcher Black Press

As B.C. hunters packed rooms to protest regulations giving guide-outfitters and their out-ofprovince clients a larger share of big-game permits, the provincial government argues that the shift is being exaggerated. The latest increase in the share of guide permits to hunt moose, grizzly bear and other restricted animals in limited-entry hunting areas of B.C. totals 618 “hunting opportunities” across the province per year, says a statement from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. Based on the success rate of hunts for different species, “this model represents a transfer of approximately 186 animals from residents to guides.” The B.C. Wildlife Federation’s estimate that the wild game allocation policy could result in 5,000 fewer hunting permits for resident hunters under limited entry hunting rules is “not accurate,” the ministry says. Forests Minister Steve Thomson said in an interview he made the decision on the latest allocation after a long consultation where the BCWF and the Guide Outfitters Association of B.C. couldn’t agree. The decision was to provide certainty for guide businesses, but also took away guides’ rights to pool regional game allotments and hunt in vacant guiding territories. “There are arguments over the number, depending on which base you use, and I expect those arguments will continue,” Thomson said. “At the end of the day we all want the same thing, which is healthy wildlife populations.” BCWF hosted hunter meetings in Kelowna and Langley last week, and spokesman Jesse Zeman said hunters were lined up out the door in Langley. He said the latest changes are part of a longer-term shift going back more than a decade that has seen a loss of harvest share for resident hunters. B.C. hunters are concerned that the share reserved for guide-outfitters is now higher than anywhere else in North America. Under the latest policy, that share is 20 per cent for elk, 20 or 25 per cent for moose depending on the restricted region, 35 per cent for mountain goat, and 40 per cent for grizzly bears. Open season areas for moose and other animals remain in the southern Interior and northeast, where anyone can buy a license and tag to hunt. Abundant species such as mule deer, whitetail deer and black bear have no hunting quotas in any part of B.C. Zeman said for prized species such as Roosevelt elk on Vancouver Island, winning a resident tag in the lottery is rare enough to be a oncein-a-lifetime opportunity. As hunter numbers rebound, they increasingly face the choice to aim for another species, drive long distances to an unrestricted region, or hire a guide. The latest changes include returning Kootenay bighorn sheep to a general open season for guided hunting. The restriction that only full-curl rams can be hunted remains in place. Thomson said the population will be closely watched, and harvest limits returned if necessary. Zeman said the BCWF is concerned that this iconic Rocky Mountain trophy could once again be over-hunted. The popularity of hunting in B.C. continues to increase, from about 81,000 licences issued in 2003 to more than 100,000 last year, which means more resident hunters are losers in regional hunting lotteries. BCWF compiled statistics for moose, the most popular big-game target. Moose populations have declined in some areas while both applications from resident hunters and the share reserved for guides has risen. In 2005 there were 56,000 applications for moose, with only one out of five successful. By 2013, there were nearly 67,000 would-be resident moose hunters, 54,000 of whom were refused a moose tag.

The man walked in and stole a camera and undisclosed amount of money before leaving. Hope applies for intervenor status in the upcoming National Energy Board hearings for Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline project. The district wants to ensure the municipality’s water resources are protected, and in particular the area of Nestlé Waters.

2014 Year in Review The waste water lift station at east Kawkawa Lake will soon be repaired following the discovery of a malfunction that resulted in the deployment of vacuum trucks to manually remove waste water.

June A new walk-in clinic opens at Fraser Canyon Clinic on Wallace Street. Physicians and nurse practitioners hope it will provide residents with more access and efficient care. Hope filmmaker Eva Wunderman wins a Golden Sheaf Award for her war documentary *Once Were Enemies.* She took home the award in the history and biography category at the 2014 Yorkton Film Festival in Saskatchewan. A 65-year old Hope man is charged with three counts of drug and firearm related offences. A search warrant was executed in the 900 block of Fraser Avenue and homeowner James McGuire was arrested.

Teachers in the Fraser-Cascade school district were behind picket lines on May 26 as part of rotating strikes around the province. Teachers camped out in front of district buildings with signs, waving to passing cars. Teachers are lobbying for a fair contract, as well as improvements to class size and composition, and other student learning conditions. From 12

when firefighters arrived on scene and eventually spread to the trailer contents, which were inside a shipping container.

The mother of two missing Alberta girls is arrested in Boston Bar after RCMP issued an amber alert in both provinces.

The Fraser-Cascade school district is considering the closure of C.E. Barry due to the cost of required seismic mitigation

for the 42-year-old building. Trustees vote in favour of pursuing a public consultation process starting in June.

B.C. teachers vote 86 per cent in favour of a full walkout to put maximum pressure on the provincial government. The B.C. Teachers’ Federation announces teacher pickets will target locations where summer school is carried out if they don’t have a settlement by the end of June.

Todd Baiden brings his culinary experience to Boston Bar with the opening of Fat Jack’s Diner at The Mighty Fraser Motel. The property has been transformed into a destination location. The Steve Nash Youth Basketball Program in Hope receives a $1,800 grant from the provincial Local Sport Program Development Fund.

The project director of a proposed ski resort in the area is fined $2 million by the B.C. Securities Commission. According to the ruling, Ronald Stephen McHaffie fraudulently enticed 30 people to invest in BigFoot Recreation and Ski Area Ltd. and raised about $642,960 through the sale of shares in BigFoot between August 2007 and January 2012. However, the company never filed a prospectus in B.C. and McHaffie was never registered to sell securities in B.C. The ruling stated that McHaffie used investor funds to pay for personal expenses, not for expenditures related to taking BigFoot public.

Production crews are in town filming the sci-fi Christmas movie “A Christmas Tale” by Ice Capp Pictures Inc. Fraser Avenue, between Commission and Wallace streets, is transformed into a winter wonderland for the film. Scenes were also shot inside Sunshine Lanes and across the street on Sixth Avenue. A dozen Hope firefighters spend six hours battling a truck fire on the Coquihalla Highway, southbound near Othello Road. The cab was fully engulfed in flames

C.E. Barry staff and students are moved to different schools for the remainder of the school year. The Fraser-Cascade school district made the decision after teachers refused to enter the building due to seismic safety concerns. Students were sent home as there were not enough administrators to provide supervision.

The MS Walk in Hope had its largest turnout ever on June 8 with 31 participants (42 people registered). The local event, that kicked off in Memorial Park, raised more than $4,000 for people living with MS.

IN MEMORIAM GIFTS

IN MEMORIAM

October 28, 1922 December 15, 2014 We are sad to announce that Mom passed away peacefully, aged 92, at Fraser Hope Lodge, feisty and stubborn to the end. She was born in Yorkton, SK, the only daughter of Warren and Petra (Lee) Brown. Predeceased by her husband Bill; son Barry; brothers Vincent, Clifford and Clarence. She is survived by her daughters Wendy (Dean), Cindy (Craig); grandchildren Michelle, Indra and Lauren; and brother, Fred of St. Paul, MN. A cancer survivor, fanatic Vancouver Canucks fan, excellent knitter, quilter and seamstress, she could can anything she could fit in a Mason jar. She grew the most amazing rose and dahlia gardens. Mom lived a long and interesting life. As a young woman she worked in Saskatoon, Winnipeg, Alberta and the Yukon, where in 1948 she cooked for 63 men in a construction camp. Once she married, the travelling continued, living in various communities throughout BC as dad worked on road construction; finally settling down in Hope. Marge was a member of the Hope Ladies Curling Club, Hope Ladies Golf Club, Fraser Canyon Ladies Hospital Auxiliary, and the Royal Canadian Legion. She was a well-known waitress at The Rupert Taylor, Ryan’s Restaurant, and the Gateway Restaurant. A memorial service for Marge and Barry will be announced in the new year.
