Memory bench offers lasting legacy Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

A Hope resident has created a memory bench to honour his family and friends who have passed away. The bench started as a tribute to his sister, Daryl Sullivan, who died in June 2013. Gardner initially built a memorial overlooking Kawkawa Lake with benches, flowers, and cedar trees. However, after it was vandalized twice and thrown into the lake, he decided to do something different. Al Fletcher supplied Gardner with two 12-foot planks of wood to construct a memory bench. He carved his sister’s name into the wood using a dremel tool, stained it, and finished it off with a coat of varnish. Gardner has since continued adding names as a way to remember his family and friends. There’s currently about 30 names carved into the bench. Over the winter, he plans on adding another half dozen people who passed away this year. The bench sits in front of Gardner’s house on Maple Street from spring to fall. Gardner said people come by on a regular basis to look at the bench and he’s even received a few phone calls from others thanking him for his efforts.

Dick and Barbara Gardner stand with the Memory Bench in front of their house on Maple Street.

Attitude is important to employers employee rather than spending time trying to hire people. That being said, employees come with a wide range of assets but also deficits. So how do you get to be the kind of employee that an employer wants to keep? In 2007 we conducted a study of hundreds of employ- Peter ers and hundreds of Bailey folk looking for work in Hope and Agassiz. We asked both groups what they thought employers valued most when hiring and to what degree. Both employers and job seekers said that attitude was the most important factor. However, what job

seekers didn’t realize was the degree to which attitude was important to employers. Most employers told us that they rated attitude ten times higher than skills. “I can always train people,” said one employer. “I can’t teach them attitude.” We heard this sentiment again and again. So maintaining a great attitude is important in keeping your job. Employees that put in extra time, offer to do jobs no one else wants to do and never complain are the top workers employers are looking for. Conversely,

Workpath

In employment counselling we are focused on helping folks find work. Another part of our job looks at employment maintenance. It’s one thing finding a job, it’s another keeping it. So why do so many employers land up firing employees within three months of hiring them? We, at the Hope WorkBC Centre, speak to local employers who tell us how frustrated they are because of poor work habits and behaviour by their staff. It’s true that recruitment can be hit and miss at times. Studies have shown that recruitment can run at about a 50 per cent success rate, which means employers could just toss a coin to find the right

people who have endless problems, complain about the company or boss and enter into conflicts with colleagues are the first to go. An employer was telling me recently that she was surprised how many new workers want to tell her when they will be available for shifts despite the fact the shift availability question was asked in the interview. So show up on time, keep a smile on your face and be the first to volunteer. It’s not always easy in every environment but it is the difference to keeping your job.

“It’s in you to give” is the great motto of Canadian Blood Services (CBS). From one blood donation, red blood cells can be extracted for use in blood loss and surgery; plasma, the liquid part of the blood can be given to those with clotting problems; and platelets can be used for cancer and transplant patients. One unit of blood can help many. Make it a goal of 2015 to give blood regularly. At this the time of year, some people make resolutions to change your life for the better. Why not make a resolution to make someone else’s life better,

too? If you are aware of people who are lonely or depressed, try reaching out to them. Bring them home for dinner or visit them in their own home. It will help them and make you feel good too. Speaking of resolutions, here are 7 goals for a healthy life: sleep 7-8 hours per night; eat breakfast every day; don’t smoke; use alcohol moderately (or not at all); don’t eat between meals; maintain proper weight; and exercise regularly. Perhaps you can include these gems in your resolutions as well.

And here’s an idea for losing weight: Canadians consume an average of 26 teaspoonful of sugar per day. If you cut that amount in half, you’ll lose 16 pounds in one year. Combine this with exercise, you’ll lose even more. We would also like to extend our thanks for the pleasant relationships we have built with our customers during 2014. We wish everyone good health, prosperity and happiness in the coming year. And thank you for reading Capsule Comments!

Opinion

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

Warrantless search not reasonable The Supreme Court of Canada has recently ruled, in a split vote, that police don’t need a search warrant to look at the contents of an arrest suspect’s cell phone. Officers have to meet several conditions first, including taking detailed notes on how they searched and what they found. Police in the U.S. need a warrant to conduct such a search, and rightly so. This is a major issue of privacy. Historically, police have had the right, during an arrest, to search a person’s purse or carry bag for evidence related to a suspected crime, or for weapons. A cell phone could be a weapon, as seen with the Boston Marathon bombings. And one could contain information compromising public safety, or be used to evade law enforcement. But should cell phones, or any mobile digital device be an exception to those historical rules? According to the Supreme Court decision, prompt access to a cell phone could help locate an accomplice to a crime or preserve evidence that would be otherwise lost. A review of recent calls or text messages may help locate the other perpetrators, preventing further crimes. Only recent e-mails, texts, photos and the call log will be available, according to the majority judges. The minority, however, felt that cell phones are different than carry bags and should be treated differently. They are computers, and search warrants are required to check those in homes. Cell phones contain vast amounts of personal information, which is why they have password access. Section 8 of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms provides everyone in Canada with protection against unreasonable search and seizure. The Canadian Civil Liberties Association is correct in this case, that because the capacity to discover private information on a cell phone is so much greater than if being frisked, a warrantless search is unreasonable. - Black Press

Climate talks end 2014 in disarray B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher In case you missed the outcome of the latest United Nations climate change conference in Lima, Peru, it was another costly, embarrassing failure. This one is likely to be remembered mostly for a staggeringly stupid stunt by Greenpeace employees, who were threatened with prosecution for defacing the Nazca Lines, a world heritage site in the Peruvian desert. These vast 1,500-year-old petroglyphs, visible from space, are among the great mysteries of archaeology. “Time for a change!” blared huge yellow letters dragged across the sacred site by paid protesters trampling the delicate ter-

rain. I’ll say it’s time for a change, starting with scratching Greenpeace off your Christmas card list. Earlier there was the spectacle of Canada’s national media, reflexively denouncing Ottawa’s supposed inaction on greenhouse gases after U.S. President Barack Obama unveiled a surprise climate agreement with China in advance of Peru. “Over to you, Mr. Prime Minister,” chirped CBC anchor Wendy Mesley, joining other TV networks in falsely portraying the U.S. deal as a breakthrough. This non-binding gesture soon produced many cartoons, one of which shows Obama stripped to his underwear in a poker game with Chinese President Xi Jinping, who is surrounded by a pile of chips and an American flag. The U.S.-China announcement served as a preview of Peru, where developing countries would again refuse any substantive restrictions

on their fuel use. China graciously agreed to continue ramping up its world-leading greenhouse gas emissions until 2030, while lameduck Obama pretended he could commit the U.S. to further reductions. Between them, the U.S. and China account for about half of global human-caused carbon emissions. Due mostly to the surge from China and India, Canada’s share has fallen from two per cent to 1.5, which should help put all those “tar sands” protests into perspective. Days later, Environment Canada released its latest national emission statistics, an event ignored by most media. “Between 2005 and 2012, total Canadian GHG emissions decreased by 5.1 per cent, while the economy grew by 10.6 per cent over the same period,” the report states.

Standard

Mary Polak joined the throngs who jetted to Lima. There she met officials from California and other U.S. states to re-announce their modest efforts to put a price on carbon emissions. TV anchors and other wide-eyed innocents might have been left with the mistaken impression that the huge U.S. petroleum industry is cutting back, when in fact it has grown enormously thanks to shale oil and gas production. And California continues to produce, by its own state government measure, the most carbon-intensive heavy crude in North America. Overshadowing all of this is the drop in  the  world price of oil, mainly the result of Saudi Arabia flooding the market in an effort to push competitors out of business. In the latest sign of the U.S. public’s lack of interest in reducing emissions, sales of larger vehicles immediately spiked up as gasoline

prices fell. I’m still receiving criticism for a recent column in which I declared myself an “agnostic” on humancaused global warming. Agnostic means searcher, and my search has continued for real signs of climate change and its potential causes. Our glaciers are receding, no question, but the current trend started around the 1850s, when a sport utility vehicle had one horsepower in leather harness and B.C. was about to be declared a British colony. But amid the noise, there is serious evidence being put forward that our province is undergoing a climate shift with major consequences. And there are calls for action. I’ll discuss that next week.

Got a news tip or story idea?

July Staff Sgt. Bruce Anderson takes over as leader of Hope and Boston Bar RCMP, bringing 33 years of experience to the job. Former Staff Sgt. Suki Manj made his last official appearance on Canada Day before relocating to Lloydminster, Alberta with his family for a job promotion.

Repair crews are at the site of a minor train derailment north of Hope in the Fraser Canyon, after four empty freight cars left the track in Dogwood Valley. Witnesses said the incident caused substantial damage to the track, as well as the main road out of the community. Rail ties were torn up and the control arm at Park Lane Drive was taken out. The new Raymond Pavilion officially opens in Boston Bar. The building was dedicated in honour of Betty and Frank Raymond for their years of community service. The Hope & District Chamber of Commerce partners with AdvantageHOPE on a kiosk improvement project at the Hunter Creek rest area.

Mayor Susan Johnston and Coun. Gerry Dyble helped employees from Nestlé Waters hand out 3,000 cases of donated bottled water on July 20 to residents affected by a precautionary boil water advisory. The advisory was issued to residents and businesses on the town site water supply system after water quality monitoring showed a positive reading with bacteria count. Subsequent tests came back clean, but the district was still instructed by Fraser Health to conduct a low-level sanitization treatment to ensure the water was safe.

The kiosk will receive much needed improvements, including repairs, refreshed signage, and ongoing maintenance. AdvantageHOPE will focus on the design, development and management of the project, while the Chamber provides up front funding to upgrade the kiosk. The investment will be recouped through advertising sales, which will be handled by AdvantageHOPE. Paving crews from Martens Asphalt are in Hope patching 1,900 square metres of cracked pavement on Third Avenue, between Wallace and Commission streets; Wallace Street, between Water and Sixth avenues; and Kawkawa Lake Road near Lakeview Crescent. Spuzzum First Nation launches a petition to save Alexandra Bridge in the Fraser Canyon. The petition supports the preservation of the bridge in traditional First Nations territory as a national historic landmark and icon of Canadian

transportation history. The goal is to see a longterm plan developed to preserve, restore and enhance the structure.

August A former Hope mayor plans to run again in November for the community’s top job. Wilfried Vicktor declares his candidacy, citing greater transparency, better communication with the public, and more council control over district expenditures and spending priorities as pressing issues. Erosion breaks the continuous connection between the five Othello Tunnels in Coquihalla Canyon Park. The province is asking visitors to obey safety measures put in place after the bridge connecting tunnels two and three received structural damage to its foundation. This bridge will remain closed for the rest of the season while repairs are being made.

Metro Roofing crews are busy throughout August installing sheet metal on the roof of Coquihalla Elementary School. The major roofing project was undertaken by the FraserCascade school district in response to several leaking issues over the last few years. Over the summer, there’s also been main driveway paving, new siding on the school gym, and portables added to accommodate students from the closure of C.E. Barry. The Hope Transfer Station is now officially open under the operation of First Class Waste Services. Residents will also no longer be required to bag their green waste in favour of a plastic container. Green Waste decals to identify these containers are available for free at district hall. Anglers flocking to the banks of the Fraser River are being warned not to park along highway shoulders after police receives several complaints.

The District of Hope is looking into the feasibility of taking over control and operation of the Station House. AdvantageHOPE wants the district to assert ownership over the building and enter into a new agreement with the province to occupy the property. The district would provide a $100,000 initial contribution, which would be offset by the relocation of the Hope Visitor Centre and Museum Complex to the Station House. Hope RCMP are searching for an Abbotsford man who was last seen near a local camping area. Tim Rutherford, 46, was last seen by a camp ranger when he was parked at the Jones Lake pull-out near Highway 1 exit 153. He had been camping in the area, but none of his friends or family had heard from him since.

Kevin Bird looks forward to helping improve student learning in his new role as assistant superintendent of schools. He brings many years of experience to the Fraser-Cascade school district, having worked in both metro and small rural communities as a classroom teacher, vice-principal and principal. Hell’s Gate Airtram is now under new ownership. Coquitlam businessman Junping Yang purchased the attraction from local sharehold-

ers at the beginning of September. The business will continue to operate as normal with all management and staff remaining on. Sixty-one people participated in the annual Terry Fox run/walk at Hope Airpark on Sunday, nearly doubling attendance from last year. The local event raised $2,235 for the Terry Fox Foundation, up from $1,663.50 in 2013. Hope receives a Five Bloom award in the 2014 provincial Communities in Bloom competition, and Victor Smith and Bob Burrell are recognized with a special provincial Community Champion award. The local delegates also honoured Laurie and Elaine French for their volunteer contributions over the past seven years. Hope managed to boost its score in several areas from the previous year and received special mention for it’s volunteerism. Area B director Dennis Adamson and Chilliwack-Hope MLA Laurie Throness pull a toilet paper ribbon to officially open the new public washroom facilities in Yale.

The highway pullout not only has new washrooms and fencing, but will have a picnic area and historical interpretive signage.

The Integrated Homicide Investigation Team was in Yale on Dec. 16 after the body of 51-year-old Zenia Moorehouse was found outside her home in the 31200 block of Front Street. Moorehouse’s family called Hope RCMP to check on her well-being after they were unable to contact her at home. When officers arrived on scene, they discovered her body and quickly determined she was the victim of a homicide. There have been no arrests made in connection to this investigation and IHIT is searching for a motive.

A small amount of liquid seeping from one of the containers appeared to be corrosive, so police called in a hazardous waste contractor. Highway 1 eastbound, between Hunter Creek and exit 165 in Hope, is shut down for hours when rocks, mud and water spill onto the roadway. The large volume of water running down the mountain is attributed to heavy rainfall. Luckily no vehicles were caught in the slide. Traffic was

The Dodge pickup was fully engulfed in flames when crews arrived on scene, but was quickly extinguished. Hope RCMP believe the fire is suspicious and is actively investigating it as an arson.

The blaze was discovered by a member of the community who saw smoke billowing from the roof of the fire hall. An attempt to remove the fire truck from inside was thwarted by the heavy smoke. When police arrived on scene, the roof was fully engulfed in flames.  Fire officials on scene attributed the cause of the fire to electrical wiring in the rafters of the building. There was no one injured in the blaze, but the total estimated damage is about $300,000.

RCMP received a complaint of a man allegedly breaking windows in the 900 block of Water Ave. Upon arrival, officers saw the man but he quickly faded from view. Police secured a perimeter and successfully contained the area with assistance from Fraser Valley Traffic Services. A search of the area led to the man being found hiding under a vehicle.  He was arrested for theft under $5,000 and mischief under $5,000. The man was later released from police custody with a court date in February 2015.
