She said the calculation emphasizes the need for businesses, policy makers and citizens to work together to ensure communities are affordable places for all residents. Homer said this year's report highlights the need for government policies that benefit lower income families. For example, she said this year's expanded universal childcare benefit brings down the Living Wage by only 16 cents, whereas the proposed $10-aday childcare plan would reduce it by $3.33. Homer said the living wage is based on the premise that people who work full-time should never have to live in poverty.

Each parent in a family of four currently needs to make $17.27 an hour in order to obtain basic needs and "maintain a decent standard of living," says a local group. Living Wage Fraser Valley (LWFV), hosted by Vibrant Abbotsford, has calculated the 2015 "living wage" for the area from Abbotsford to Hope/Boston Bar, including Mission. The figure was released today (Wednesday, April 29th.) A living wage is calculated based on a budget for a healthy family of four with two
son Homer said childcare, transportation and food were the biggest drivers of the increase, rising by $50, $29 and $24 respectively each month since last year. Homer said the Living Wage is released annually to demonstrate how the real costs of living are changing in local communities. She said this year the trend is continuing that the cost of living is rising faster than inflation. "It is progressively harder each year for families to make ends meet, with families having to spend $308 more each month than they did three years ago to cover the same expenses," Homer said.

children ages four and seven, and each parent working 35 hours a week for 52 weeks a year. It takes into account basic expenses such as food, housing, childcare, clothing and transportation, after government taxes, credits, deductions and subsidies have been factored in. The living wage does not consider home ownership, debt, holidays, saving for retirement or a child's education, or caring for a disabled, ill or elderly family member. This year's calculation is up 1.5 per cent from the 2014 figure of $17.02. Vibrant Abbotsford director Ali-

B.C. bracing for earthquake effects In response to the recent Nepal earthquake a simulator is making rounds in the Lower Mainland By Tom Fletcher Black Press
Images of brick buildings crumbling in the recent Nepal earthquake have added extra urgency to efforts to prepare for the next big one along the B.C. coast. The latest reminder of the hazard to B.C. came April 24, when a tremor centred in the ocean off Haida Gwaii registered 6.1 on the Richter scale. While too far from land and settle-
ments to cause significant damage, it provided the first live test for the province's new notification system for earthquake and tsunami zones. "What took as much as 25 minutes in the past was down to 10 minutes," said Pat Quealey, assistant deputy minister responsible for Emergency Management B.C. "And that's significant when you consider that that now allows emergency program coordinators in at-risk communities to

To help with earthquake kits and evacuation plans, the latest edition of the province's Earthquake and Tsunami Smart Manual is available at the Emergency Management B.C. website, www.embc.gov.bc.ca, where people can also register to receive tsunami notifications by email. During National Emergency Pre-

Pharmacists put a “shake well” label on some liquid prescriptions. It’s important to heed that label. Some liquids are suspensions and
“More is better” is something that doesn’t always apply to drugs. Drugs often reach a peak level of effectiveness at a certain dose and taking more will often not give better results. But side effects can occur at higher doses. Follow your doctor’s orders regarding how much medication to take.

Protect your teeth by keeping certain foods to a minimum. Even soft drinks and sports drinks contain acids that can corrode tooth enamel. Dried fruit can stick to teeth surfaces. Some contain extra sugar, too. Even yummy potato chips get into tooth crevices and stay. It’s hard to avoid some of these foods and drinks but brushing soon after eating them will avoid tooth decay and other problems. Want a pharmacy to feel good about? Give us a try!

YOUR VACCINATION CENTRE When you visit your doctor about a problem (like pain), be a good reporter. Plan how you will give your doctor information. The better reporter you are, the better the chance your doctor can help. If it is pain, use descriptive words like “stabbing”, “sharp”, “dull”, “achy”. It is sometimes helpful to write down your comments so you don’t miss anything and it saves time as well.

Iker drones on about under-funding for B.C. schools After the first few glum lines of his speech, it was difficult to tell anything had changed for B.C. Teachers’ Federation president Jim Iker as he took his familiar place before the TV cameras last week. Iker droned on about how B.C. schools are under-funded by hundreds of millions of dollars, echoing demands from the disastrous strike he led the union membership into last year. The B.C. Court of Appeal had just overturned a bizarre trial court decision that tried to give the union everything it wanted: a trip back in time to the NDP wonderland of 2001, a constitutional spanking for the B.C. Liberal government and a $2 million bonus of taxpayers’ money. The BCTF must now pay back that $2 million and scrape up whatever is left of its members’ compulsory dues to plead for an appeal at the Supreme Court of Canada, continuing the executive’s self-righteous fantasy of controlling education spending in B.C. The appeal court didn’t just overturn the judgment of B.C. Supreme Court Justice Susan Griffin. It shredded her legal reasoning and bluntly corrected her, over and over, on evidence she ignored or misinterpreted. The appeal court confirmed at great length what I said when Griffin’s second decision came down in early 2014: it was far worse for B.C. schools than when judges decided in 2005 that teachers can bring union propaganda into classrooms. Did the government bargain in bad faith? No. Did they conspire to provoke a strike? No. Did they illegally strip working conditions from the teacher contract? No. Turns out our kids are not just “working conditions” for teachers, and public policy still matters. And it turns out that making special needs assistants dash between classes to deal with two kids here and three over there was a lousy idea. Now there’s even a credit course offered in high school for students with learning difficulties, which probably has some BCTF minion crafting a pile of grievances about segregation. In the negotiated settlement reached last fall, teachers shared $105 million to make thousands of baseless grievances go away, after the union filed one for student numbers in every class in the province. This bloated perpetual protest machine drains the public purse in more ways than taxpayers realize. Parents understand the strikes, though. They remember a union that scrapped report cards, disrupted administration and forced schools to shut down at graduation time. Black Press
More trades positions added at colleges B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher The B.C. government is adding new trades seats to 12 post-secondary institutions, to allow students to sample different trades. The "trades discovery" program runs 10 to 12 weeks, providing hands-on experience. Those who complete the program can then enrol in a "foundation" program for the trade or seek an apprenticeship place with an employer. Premier Christy Clark donned her hardhat and joined high school students in new secondary trade programs for the announcement at the B.C. legislature this week. Jobs Minister Shirley Bond said the government has made progress in the Skills for Jobs Blueprint, launched a year ago to redesign the B.C. education system from elementary to post-secondary to match educa-
tion up with high-demand jobs in the future. The additional funding of $727,500 is to provide 68 seats at Camosun College, 32 at College of New Caledonia, 32 at College of the Rockies, 16 at Kwantlen Polytechnic University, 16 at Nicola Valley Institute of Technology, 12 at North Island College, 40 at Northwest Community College, 32 at Okanagan College, 16 at Selkirk College, 30 at Thompson Rivers University, 16 at University of the Fraser Valley and 16 at Vancouver Island University. Advanced Education Minister Andrew Wilkinson said the blueprint assigns 25 per cent of post-secondary funds to in-demand jobs, to fill positions left vacant by a wave of retirements in the coming decades. New or expanded trades facilities are underway at Camosun College, Okanagan College and Nicola Valley. According to the Industry Training Authority, more than 41,000 participants are now involved in an adult, youth or foundation trades program. Shane Simpson, the NDP's critic for

labour and skills, said the problem is not getting students started in trades, it is finding them apprenticeship places that put them on the job. The B.C. Federation of Labour has called on the government to put apprentice requirements into contracts for public construction projects. Simpson said there are also few apprentices in the public service. Bond said in the legislature last week that she is concerned about the low completion rates in trade programs, and she expects to make an announcement soon about placements in government activities.

Canadian funded TB Reach a phenom Congratulations are in order for the BC Interior Health Authourity (IHA). After seven long years, the TB outbreak in Kelowna has ended. It started in 2008 with one person with regular TB. Kelowna Doctor, Sue Pollock, said “they (TB outbreaks) typically last several years and require
a tremendous amount of resources and community coordination to bring under control”. Approximately 2400 people were screened for infectious TB and 52 people were treated. Upgrades to hospital isolation wards and updates to staff training and clinical support tools were needed. Medical health of-
ficers and communicable disease workers worked closely with community outreach services including street nurses, shelters and community agencies. It cost B.C. taxpayers millions. All from one case of regular TB. We are on the verge of a global epidemic. The key is early detection and treat-
ment for every single case everywhere. Failure is unthinkable. Canadian funded TB REACH is a phenomenally successful program for finding TB in the hardest to reach places in the world. The Harper government has not renewed the funding. We simply can’t afford to let this pro-
gram expire. To stop tiny, Kelowna size outbreaks, all across Canada we need to stop outbreaks everywhere. Please help: Contact your MP, your federal election candidates, write letters to your newspapers, tell everyone that you want TB taken seriously, and to fund TB REACH. We still have a chance to prevent
a global TB epidemic and prevent budget busting outbreaks all across Canada. Leo Young
CEO Ike Lalji remiss on prizes On April 24th at 9:30 a.m. one brave Miss World Canada contestant will be suing. Mr. Lalji took over as chairman of the Miss World Canada Pageant in 2012 when previous director Katherine Grefner was unable to continue as CEO due to personal reasons. Grefner had run the event to empower women as philanthropists, as a sequel to her Miss Canada Teen Global event, which had raised funds for VarietyThe Children’s Charity. Ike Lalji has followed Grefner’s blue print for pageant philanthropy and encouraging contestants to raise funds for Variety. However, what he is not following through with is a large part of sponsorship money that’s been promised the girls, as well as the awarding of prizes such as luxury trips to Vegas, spa packages, gym memberships and even flight costs to compete at the Miss World International level of competition. Lalji has promised many contestants that prizes and money will be en route to them, but now contestants say
they are becoming wise to his antics, as he just sits and waits for the two year mark to pass which is necessary to go through with legal proceedings. This court case is taking place at the Richmond Provincial Court located at 7577 Elmbridge Way. At 9:30 a.m. Friday morning, Tamara will be presenting many letters from past contestants who have also issues with Ike Lalji. Ike Lalji CEO of the Miss World Canada organization withholds prizes from his winners and runner-ups. Throughout the years, girls have been afraid to step forward and take legal action against Ike Lalji and the organization. Many girls don’t have the funds or time from their studies or jobs to follow through with collecting what is rightfully theirs. However, one brave 21 year old beauty from Ontario is going the distance and flying in to Richmond where the 2013 Miss World Canada Pageant took place, to sue Ike Lalji and she will not be taken advantage of without a fight. She has finally summed up the courage to stand up
to the man that owes her thousands of dollars. Tamara Jemuovic won 1st runner up at the Miss World Canada 2013 pageant held at the River Rock Show Theatre in Richmond, BC. She also won People’s Choice Award, and as such was awarded two one-year gym memberships, a crown and two luxury trips to Las Vegas. As well Tamara is claiming that $750 worth of her hard earned sponsorship money came in the form of a bounced cheque, which was never replaced after copious requests to receive from Mr. Ike Lalji. Ike Lalji’s first endeavor was with his first queen Tara Teng who won in 2012, she later went on to compete in China at the Miss World pageant representing Canada. Mr. Lalji asked Tara to cover the cost of the flight (which is totally against Miss World’s rules and regulations) promising to reimburse her later. Years later, Tara Teng has still not received the flight money, plus her $5,000 scholarship money, as well as
several other prize packages as per agreement. Other contestants have written letters to the court to aid in Tamara’s case and hopefully Tamara is setting a precedent for other girls who are otherwise to scared, busy or financially burdened to step forward. These girls have complaints that range from sexual harassment to owed money. Not only have girls been taken advantage of financially, their experience was cheapened, during pageant week. They were told they were going someplace classy but instead were taken to a low class club scene where they felt violated and uncomfortable. Where is the money going?

Oliver’s peak-a-boo game comes to an end It’s no wonder Finance Minister Joe Oliver has been in hiding, refusing to answer questions about his management of the
economy in the House of Commons on most days. There’s simply nothing good Mr. Oliver can say about the Conservatives’

banks have chopped their forecasts. The Bank of Canada says that economic growth is “atrocious” and requires “considerable monetary stimulus to avoid falling back into recession”. It is grossly irresponsible that Mr. Oliver—who is responsible to manage our economy—simply ducked all this bad news. But his peak-a-boo will come to an end when the budget is tabled on April 21, after an unprecedented delay. His signature promise to balance the books relies on the price of oil remaining at $81 (US) a barrel—yet recently it has fluctuated around $50. His major initiative is income splitting, a $2 billion tax break for the rich that will do nothing for growth. We can’t keep going this way. Canada needs to spur growth. Infrastruc-
ture investment would be an effective way to invest in our economy and a valuable source of middle-class jobs. Stronger public education is more important than ever. Chrystia Freeland, MP

ineffectual management of our nation’s finances and economy. Net taxes have gone up in each of their last five budgets. Three-quarters of a billion dollars has been wasted on partisan ads and spending on costly outside contracting has ballooned by $3 billion a year. And the economy has suffered. Stephen Harper has had the worst rate of economic growth of any Prime Minister since R.B. Bennett during the Great Depression. Some 200,000 more Canadians are unemployed now than before the recession, long term unemployment remains elevated and job quality has hit an all-time low. Job growth has slowed for the past two years and unemployment is forecast to rise. All of the chartered

Early childhood development at Silver Creek Ready Set Learn is all about bringing parents on board to make the most of early resources for successful childhood progression In today’s busy lives, it can be a challenge to take a minute and play with our children. The annual Ready Set Learn at Silver Creek Elementary is targeting play as this year’s theme. “It is an excuse to take the time and play with your child because you are learning valuable information at the same time.” said Darla Dickinson, one of the organizers of the event and the coordinator for the Hope Early Years Table. “The event will also offer a host of community resources available for the Early Years, so it will be an invaluable wealth of information and a time for play.” The event runs from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Wednesday, May 13th at the Silver Creek Elementary School, and it is open to all families/caregivers in Hope and surrounding areas with children age 0-to-kindergarten. “I am excited about the Early Years Table being involved in this initiative. Ready, Set, Learn’s are effective tools to help children be more kindergarten ready when they enter school. Overall Kindergarten readiness is a significant indicator of a child’s success in and out of school,” said Dickinson. “In 2013, 54 percent of children in our community were not kindergarten ready.” Ready Set Learn offers parents a chance to talk with the Kindergarten teacher, and other administrators, while engaging in play based stations with their children. They will be able to go for a guided tour of the school, ask questions of local early years resource providers, and every child will walk away with a free book and an activity bag full of prizes and games they can take home. The event will also offer additional door prizes for the children, and gift certificates for their parents/ caregivers “To me, Ready Set Learn is a great opportunity to make your child comfortable in the school setting though play. It eases their anxiety, and it gives parents a chance to ask any questions that they may have as they prepare to send their child off to school.”

A nice place to sell your scrap metal
Before automatic Block Signals governed by Centralized Traffic Control on a dispatchers switching panel existed, trains were run by timetables and train orders. Big cumbersome timetables listed first, second, third, and fourth class schedules, with eastward usually as a superior direction. The extra trains were run by train order with no superiority except by Train Orders. Remember the thousands of train order offices such as Hope, Stout, Chilliwack, Langley and Matsqui, not to mention a few with operators at some two hours a day who issued train orders to keep trains moving on schedule. The rule book listed all the forms of train orders that had to be printed in perfect form and specific wordings, because crews had to know, or severe SUBMITTED PHOTO accidents might occur.

We checked our timetable and a register check showing that all trains through the night had arrived and left, and now all we had to do was run a few time table trains again. Freight trains never got out on schedule and the lowly way freight that was used to switch all the way from Port Mann was hours late. The dispatcher then had to guesstimate accordingly and put out orders to allow us to proceed by train order. The first train coming against us was #854, and he was late, so we got order #22-Extra 3653 Meet #854, and he was late so then we got order #22-Extra 3653, Meet #854 at Floods. Ok, I thought, let’s go there for the meet. Arriving at Hope we scooped up another order “Extra 3563 has right over #398 Eng 2752, Hope to Matsqui.” We decide to go to the East Switch at Matsqui only, unless we get more paper on #398 there.

On Saturday night my friend and I attended an event at the Delta Grand Okanagan Hotel honouring the former mayor of Kelowna and two longtime councillors. I pulled my car up to the building, grumbled there was no valet parking and headed to its parkade. When I approached the entrance my pal, Jennifer Long, told me to stop the car and jumped out to buy a pass from the machine. As she did I answered a couple of texts on my phone. A few minutes later I thought I heard a feeble “Lori?” coming from outside the car. Looking back I could see my beautiful friend in her elegant dress and five inch heels bending over as if she were picking up something from the ground while a car waited for her to move. I was about to get out to help, but suddenly she’d hobbled up to the passenger door, slid onto the seat in an awkward position and held her face up in the air with her hands. “I think I broke my nose,” she said as blood poured out of it. “And my teeth.” With her chin held
high to keep the blood from getting on her dress she pulled the visor down and inspected her reflection in the mirror. “How do I know if I broke my nose?” she asked. “Do you have a cloth?” I was already fumbling around my husband’s car looking for napkins or tissue. “What in the hell happened to you?” I asked, reaching for the only thing I could find a grubby wash rag. Oddly I felt my initial concern transitioning into a suppression of laughter. “You didn’t see any of that?” she asked in shock. “Nothing? I just had the most embarrassing moment of my life and you missed the entire thing?” “I was texting,” I said, trying to sound serious and remain stonyfaced. “I thought you were just picking up coins or something.” “Coins?” she asked, her eyes penetrating mine. “You thought I was picking up coins?” “Yes,” I said, doing everything in my power to kill the unintentional smile I felt sprouting on my face. I asked her if she wanted me to take her to the hospital, but before I
could finish the question my voice got high and started to crack. The laugh I’d been trying to stifle escaped and it didn’t just erupt out of me, but out of her too. As she entertainingly explained how her heel got caught in a hole in the cement and she suddenly found herself falling forward, she said she conducted a full on debate inside her head as she tumbled away. “I’m OK,” she had thought to herself. “No, I think I’m falling. No, I couldn’t be. Now I’m on my knees? Now I’m falling further? Weird. Guess I’m really falling. What the hell? My nose just fully crashed into the pavement. And it was so loud! But I’m still alive?” After trying to break the fall with her arms she motioned towards me and whimpered my name. “Huh?” her thoughts continued. “How am I going to get into that car from here?” By now we were laughing so hard we were actually crying as she continued to wipe away the blood with the dirty cloth while noticing the big runs in her nylons and her bloody knees.
“Maybe we should go to the hospital?” I repeated, as I looked at the road rash on her nose and forehead. “I’m okay,” she said. “It just really hurts.” As we walked to the hotel we marvelled at how she could go from an upright walking position one moment, to landing directly on her face with the full force of her body weight seconds later. “I’m always left wondering what my most embarrassing moment is whenever that subject comes up,” she said. “Now I’ve got a story to tell.” Fortunately she appears to be all right and the fall that should have broken her nose did not. It didn’t ruin her evening either, and unless we told people what happened, no one knew. Hopefully the hotel has some video footage they can share so we can see what those people in the car witnessed. I certainly learned why we’re encouraged to put our phones down and pay attention to what’s happening around us. Good or bad, it's often worth seeing. Lori Welbourne is a syndicated columnist.

Our last Hope Animal Rescue Society is introducing its low cost spay/ neuter program. The low cost program seeks to support local pet owners with the costs incurred by proper maintenance and care of animals. The service, which is in partnership with veterinary support from Chilliwack, includes core vaccination, de-worming, nail trimming, ear cleaning and flea treatment. “Often, pet owners don’t get these essential procedures done for financial reasons,” said Jeneane Ruscheinsky, founder and CEO. The rescue is on board to make sure that people have supports to take care of their beloved pets properly. Our Last Hope is not a shelter, but is the next step from a shelter and carefully facilitates the connection of the animals they Volunteer Sharlene Harrisen-Hinds and Shiva enjoy a few cuddles at Our Last Hope Animal care and provide for, with Rescue Society on Friday, May 1st.

Famous Quotes for Mother’s Day
other’s Day is celebrated on various days in many parts of the world. Many countries and cultures choose to celebrate Mother’s Day in March, April or May. Though the Mother’s Day many people know today dates back a little more than a century, historians note that ancient Romans kept a festival to Cybele, a great mother of the Gods. In addition, Europe has several traditions aimed at honoring mothers that date back quite a while.
’S R E TH CIAL O M SPE DAY
One of the traditions associated with the current Mother’s Day is to give Mom a gift. Some people only give their own mothers and wives gifts, while others extend their generosity to sisters with children, mothers-in-law and even grandmothers. Chances are, over the years Mom’s gifts have run the gamut, from a homemade treasure kids made in elementary school to jewelry from hubby to breakfast in bed. For those who want to add a literary tilt to their Mother’s Day gift this year, consider including any of the following motherly quotes when preparing a gift Mom won’t soon forget.

Erin Knutson Hope Standard
The Hope Cinema is clearly a force to be reckoned with upon a visit one rainy Friday afternoon. Kevin Larson who has been bravely helming the operation is no stranger to the magic of the cinema experience of days gone by. Opening its doors to the Hope Standard, one thing resonated — the classic style of the local cinema is a gem that seems to have escaped the flow of time. “They don’t make them like this anymore,” said Larson. Walking through the doors of the impressive facade and its neon lights, one is struck by the careful preservation of the theatre. It is reminiscent of the earlier days of movie going experiences, long before the onslaught of generic super-sized movie dome houses became the norm. After making the switch to digital a couple years ago, Larson, has maintained the integrity of the cinema,

along with a level of showmanship that makes the viewing experience that more pleasurable. “We’ve kept it going, where other small towns have died out.” A unique attribute and asset to Hope with small town cinema fizzing out, Lrson has honed in on the needs of the local market and with a passion and love of all things filmmaking is showcasing a projector worthy of the greats. The cinema is the proud home to the Super Simplex Project 1938. “This was one of two projectors from the Dlova Cinema in Cloverdale,” said Larson of the nostalgically beautiful machine. A beauty from a golden era, it is one half of a two piece masterpiece. “The reason for the two projectors is because each movie had six, two eight reels of film lasting 15 to 20 minutes — a change over was needed between each reel of film,” he said.

The godfather of 35mm film From 16
One entire movie could be up to 12,000 feet of 35mm film. The lamp house on the back of the projector was taken out of service in the 70’s, when xenon lamp houses materialized. “They effectively replaced the carbon arc and created a technique to produce the exceptional light needed for film projection.” Eventually the film magazines on the bottom and top of the projector were transformed to roller arms, which then accommodated a new method of film delivery to the projector. From this unique point, all film could be built up from the reels onto a film platter, which could hold the entirety (12,000 feet of film) in the late 70’s and early 80’s. Fully functional, this timeless projector would still be effective, if not for the advent of the great digital transition, which succeeded in dumping thousands

DEVELOPMENT OF A PEST MANAGEMENT PLAN Pest Management Plan (PMP) No.: 794-003-15/20 The Fraser Timber Supply Area Cooperative Association (FTSACA) is developing a Pest Management Plan (PMP) under the Integrated Pest Management Act. This plan will describe a vegetation management program using Integrated Pest Management, including the use of herbicides. The purpose of the PMP is to describe the vegetation management program in the FTSACA chart area in the Fraser Timber Supply Area. Vegetation control methods in this plan include aerial foliar spray, ground foliar spray (including backpack and power nozzle), stem injection (hack and squirt), basal bark sprays, manual girdling, power saw, stem bending and pulling and mechanical site preparation. These treatments will take place within the Fraser Timber Supply Area that contains Crown land designated as forest land within the Chilliwack Forest District extending from the Nesakwatch River drainage on the Canada / US border in the south to the Nahatlatch River drainage in the north. It extends from the Pitt River in the west to the Skagit River in the east. Since the FTSACA chart areas are spread throughout the Chilliwack Forest District, nearby towns include Boston Bar and Hope and the communities of the Fraser Valley. There are numerous dwellings scattered throughout the plan area. Proposed herbicides to be used include Vision, VisionMax, Vantage, Weed-Master (glyphosate), Release MSO, Garlon RTU, Garlon XRT (triclopyr) and Sylgard 309 (siloxylated polyether). This Pest Management Plan will be in effect for a period of five years from the date of approval (approximately 2015 to 2020).

Power and Sail Squadron hosts courses 173 squadrons across Canada seek to increase safety on the waterways through education sessions
Vikki Hopes Black Press
The Valley Power and Sail Squadron is inviting the public to learn more about its programs on Saturday, May 23rd. The squadron is among the organizations taking part in the Community Programming Open House at Abbotsford Centre (33800 King Rd.) from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The organization covers the areas of Abbotsford, Mission, Chilliwack, Hope and Agassiz-Harrison. The squadron holds boating courses, monthly meetings, cruises and socials. The 173 squadrons across Canada have a common purpose – "to increase safety and pleasure on the waterways through awareness and education." The local squadron consists of members who operate any kind of boat — from kayaks to large power or sailboats. The group hosts a monthly meeting and gathers for numerous social activities, including "cruises" at places such as Harrison Lake, Indian Arm and the Gulf Islands. Courses are offered for all types of boaters – from obtaining a pleasure craft operator's card to advanced navigation and GPS charting. Those who complete the course and pass the “pleasure craft operators” exam receive a Canadian Coast Guard pleasure craft operator card. A VHF radio course is also offered in the fall and spring. The courses give new boaters and water enthusiasts the tools to enjoy the water safely and to optimize their time. By familiarizing water patrons with the correct information, the world is an oyster. For course information or for more details about the Valley Power and Sail Squadron, call Bruce Matheson at 604-824-8616 or Charleen Blackall at 604-859-6102 or visit boatingcourses.ca.

Rapunzel, Rapunzel at Coquihalla Elementary School The children of Coquihalla Elementary School will be setting the stage on fire with their upcoming adaptation of Rapunzel. Kindergartners all the way through grade six are set to be featured in the contemporary style play, designed and facilitated by the Missoula Children’s Theatre Company. “It’s really about developing good listening skills and paying attention to the actors and directors provided by the company,” said Coquihalla teacher, Aaron Poulin. An actor and a director from the company auditioned 74 kids last week to participate in the production and 64 made the cut.
The intensive week long rehearsals are about teamwork, inspiration and allowing the kids to really shine. The program addresses part of the drama curriculum, while giving workshops to all the classes on theatre techniques. An innovative structure that provides a fun challenge, whilst teaching kids about dedication and commitment in tandem — the exciting and dynamic theatre boot camp gives kids an outlet and training ground for real life. “There are dance numbers and lines to learn,” said Poulin. “It’s a great week and a I see a lot of kids come out of their shells, they’re singing and a lot more confident
and it’s fun to see how they progress as they move up through the grades.” All proceeds from the ticket sales will go toward funding the theatre program, which seeks to set kids up with the tools to succeed, whatever environment they’re in. The showing will be at the Coquihalla Elementary School gymnasium on Saturday, May 9th with two shows at 2 p.m. and 4 p.m. Tickets are available for adults at $10 and for school age children at $5. For more information please contact Coquihalla Elementary School at 604-8699904.

Over the next few weeks, weather dependent, a helicopter will be used to deliver tower parts for the new transmission line to areas that are not accessible by roads. All necessary permits and permissions have been obtained and the work will be in compliance with Transport Canada requirements. The helicopter activities and ﬂight times (i.e. start times and routes near residential areas) will be managed to minimize disturbances. The Interior to Lower Mainland Transmission Project will enable more electricity to be delivered from areas where it is generated – in the Columbia and the Peace regions – to the Lower Mainland and Vancouver Island, ensuring that homes and businesses continue to receive clean and reliable energy.

Sports Local wrestler takes bronze and gold
16-year old Karam Shergill set a lofty goal of being an Olympic wrestler and is well on his way Barry Stewart Hope Standard
Some years ago, a teacher at Boston Bar School asked two grade 11 boys about their post-graduate plans. “We’re going to play for the Canucks!” was their quick reply. “But do you even know how to skate?” asked the teacher, trying to nudge them back into reality. “No, but we’ll learn!” If you’ve got a lofty goal, you need to start taking the developmental steps well in advance — like 16-year-old Karam Shergill, who has a dream of being an Olympic wrestle and has some 100 trophies and medals earned in the sport since he started competing at age 4-and-a-half. The 102 Kg grade 10 student added two more medals to his collection last month: a gold and a bronze, earned at the Asics Cadet and Juvenile Nationals, April 9-12 in Fredericton, New Brunswick. The gold came in the cadet (grade 9 and 10) 100-115 kilo freestyle wretling class and the bronze came in juvenile Greco-Roman, where Shergill was competing against boys aged 17 and 18. Freestyle allows leg holds and trips, whereas Greco-Roman is focused on upper-body grappling. “I had to wrestle in three matches in cadet — plus my first match, which was a bye,” said Shergill on Monday. “Ontario and BC wrestlers were seeded the highest, so I did a draw with an Ontario guy and he had to wrestle in the first round and I got the bye. “Each match is six minutes, with two three-minute periods and a thirtysecond rest in between,” he explained. “If you ‘tech’ a guy (by getting a points spread of 10 or more points,) it would be over sooner — like in my first match, where it was over in about four-and-a-half minutes. “If you can get around behind your opponent, that’s two points; if you can throw him to the mat, that’s four and if you can hold him there, that’s four more,” explained Shergill. “My second match, I won 12-2, then in the finals, I was against a wrestler from Esquimalt, Hunter Grant, who I had never wrestled before. I won 8-4. I got behind him twice and pushed him out of the ring twice (2 points for each.) I was on defence and he got behind me twice — but that’s fine. Shergill had injured his wrist before going back east, but tape and ice made the pain bearable, until he met a grade 12 wrestler in the round robin juvenile event. “I won my first match, then I lost to a guy from my club, Pawandeep Khinda. He knew I had a sore wrist — but I taped them both, so he wouldn’t know which one was bothering me. Then I won against a grade 12 guy but I couldn’t wrestle any more, because I broke my wrist.” Shergill’s two missed matches gave automatic wins to those wrestler, but a bit of good luck kept him in medal contention. “The guy I lost to, lost to the guy I beat, so adding up all the points, Khinda went to the bottom and I ended up third,” said Shergill, laughing at his good fortune. Things didn’t work so well for Shergill’s 15-year-old brother Daya, who also travelled to the competition, both accompanied by dad, Harjit. “Daya had five or six matches in the 54 kilo event — but it’s tough, going against grade 10s,” said Karam. Next year, Daya be a senior in the cadet age class. Fridays are Karam’s day of rest, when he cuts back to doing a bit of work in the small gym at home. Otherwise, it’s six days of training for cardio, power lifting and explosive conditioning — as well as wrestling on four of those days at the Guru Gobind Singh club in Abbotsford.
