Purple lights campaign gives victims a voice Erin Knutson Hope Standard The month of October is drawing near and with it the Purple Lights Campaign, which shines a light on domestic violence. For the entire month, starting on October 1, with the lighting of the Purple Lights tree in Memorial Park, the entire District of Hope will be acknowledging victims of violence. All of Hope is encouraged to wear purple, light their homes and businesses with purple light bulbs, and to join Marianne Brueckert, program manager of Victims Services for the Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment (UFVRD,) sponsors, and the RCMP in a bid to recognize and bring awareness to an important and often silenced issue. “We will be having a peace walk, a blessing, and a chainsaw carving dedicated to domestic violence,

that will be carved by Brigitte Lochhead,” Brueckert told The Hope Standard. “Attendance was big last year, and it’s important to honour the lost lives of domestic violence.” Service clubs like the Rotary and the Lions Club have gotten on board with the Hope Legion, the Blue Moose and the Chamber of Commerce (to name a few) to strategize for the success of the campaign — there will be wristbands available for sale and bulbs at various locations throughout the community. “We’re hoping for a big turnout this year at the kickoff,” said Brueckert. “It’s about ending violence — there has been an increase in numbers and you don’t want to see a child dying in this situation, it has a ripple effect.” According to Brueckert trauma affects everybody in the community, whether it be financial, health or employment related.

“It’s important for the community to come together and to not be afraid of talking about it, while lending support and raising awareness,” she said. “There was a turnout of about 100 people last year which was big — some people are afraid to be seen, because of what others might think, but the participation of the elderly, children, and the District coming together was huge in a community this size.” The campain was created to help provide the tools for people to reach out for support when they need help, during a situation that shouldn’t be occuring. “It’s about opening doors and creating more comfort for people to reach out for help,” said Brueckert. Please join the community of Hope on Thursday, October 1 at 6:30 p.m. in Memorial Park for the lighting of the Purple Lights tree.

Local First Nations designer makes history History was doubly made when 25-year-old First Nations woman Ashley Callingbull, took the crown for Mrs. Universe in Belarus, Russia at the end of August, and local designer and First Nations member Lyn Kay Peters was acknowledged for designing the traditional aboriginal dress, Callingbull wore in the talent portion of the competition. “I’ve been sewing since I was really young, and I’d been making my own doll clothes for awhile, and then my grandmother taught me how to use her treadle sewing machine, so my first job was making her curtains,” Lyn told The Hope Standard. When Lyn was in her early teens she started to make clothes for herself, out of whatever she could find around the house. “I don’t believe I had a pattern — I think I probably used old clothes or something, because we didn’t have money to buy patterns,” she said. “I continued to make clothing until I was married.” Lyn was only 19, when she first tied the knot, and quit sewing for about twenty years or so. After the dissipation of her marriage she started up again in 1995. “I was working at Seabird Island Band and a woman came to work for me. She was my assistant. Her name was Carol Mason and she was a designer — she’s from the Blood Reserve in Alberta and I felt inspired by her, so that’s when I started sewing again, and she kind of became my mentor — I would bring things in and she would critique them,” said Lyn. Mason’s strong influence was credited by Lyn for inspiring her to get into fashion design. “When I first started I was making clothing and I wasn’t putting designs on them, I was just making clothing — now I don’t do any sewing, unless it’s got a design on it, and I also work with other First Nations artists. I can draw, but I don’t consider myself a great artist, so I like to work with them — they do the

drawings for me and I buy the designs and use them for my clothing.” Part Cree and Ojibway, 66 year-old Lyn was born in Northern Ontario, but she hasn’t been back since 1966. “I grew up right in Hope, and I went away and worked in different places for a few years, but I always came back and when I got married I moved to Seabird Island, because of my husband who was a band member.” After her marriage dissolved, Lyn decided that she needed to take care of herself, so she went back to school and got an education. “I studied here in Hope — I took upgrading, this would have been in 1975. I had no skills to support myself whatsoever, and I didn’t know about alimony and child support during that time, so I ended up going back to school. I took a nurses aid course and supported myself that way,” she said. In 1985, she went back to school again at the Saskatchewan Indian Federated College, which is now called the First Nations University of Canada and she took a journalism course. “When I came out there weren’t many jobs available for First Nations people in the radio and television area. I did a lot of volunteer work on camera, interviewing and stuff like that in Chilliwack. I worked with Shaw cable which inspired me to go back to school and take a journalism course, but after that, it was hard to get into CBC — it was very competitive, so I never specifically got into the field of journalism, deciding instead to work for my own people.” Lyn has been working on and off at Seabird Island for the past 30 years in different areas, mainly in aboriginal health. She has come to the forefront of a lot of new initiatives, especially when she worked as the Fraser Valley Health Coordinator, and for the Chief’s Health Council in Vancouver. “Seabird brought me home and I worked as the Health Services Program Manager for about six years — Seabird provides health services to over 14 communities in the Fraser Valley, so I worked with all those communities in different capacities.” During this time, Lyn had been doing fashion shows on the weekend, after work, and all of her clothing is mostly custom orders.

After Callingbull put out a post looking for a designer for the Mrs. Universe pageant in Russia to make a traditional dress for the talent portion in which she was drumming and singing, Lyn knew it was her opportunity. “I had made this buckskin dress for a magazine and I sent a picture of it and she liked it, and she wanted to wear it, so I altered it for her after she sent her measurements — she’s also going to be modeling at Fashion Speaks on September 16 at the Kamloops Indian Pow Wow Band for our missing and murdered women to raise awareness.” On dressing the 2015 Mrs. Universe, Lyn had a few things to say. “I could have jumped up and down — I was walking around with a smile on my face, all day, it was just so exciting for us. It seemed like something that wasn’t really part of our lifestyle, but Callingbull is so motivating, letting other people know that anything is possible through example, and that you can achieve anything you want to — you just have to put your mind to it and I’m part of that success.”

B.C. Seniors advocate Isobel Mackenzie Tom Fletcher Black Press A third of people caring for a frail senior at home are in distress, and yet some provincial supports such as adult day programs remain under-used, according to a new report from B.C.'s Seniors Advocate. A survey of health assessments for 30,000 B.C. seniors found that the majority of those who report fatigue and other stresses from caring for a relative or friend aren't using provincial programs. B.C. offers three kinds of respite services, adult day programs, respite beds in care facilities that offer care for up to 30 days at a time, and home support visits from care aides. Seniors Advocate Isobel Mackenzie said availability of programs is better in urban areas than rural ones, but in general B.C. offers less respite care than Alberta and has more unpaid caregivers reporting distress. Mackenzie says increasing availability for adult day programs could reduce emergency visits from complex home care patients by a third, and hospital admissions by half, detecting medication or other health problems before they produce a hospital visit. One puzzling result from the survey is that while there are waiting lists for adult day programs in B.C., one out of four spaces is empty each day. Mackenzie said there may be logistical problems with home

care patients, such as a need to attend medical appointments at the same time as the day program is offered. Mackenzie isn't suggesting government-paid substitutes can replace volunteer caregivers, most of whom are spouses or other relatives, but says they should have more opportunities to take a break. "Caregivers do it all," she said. "Sometimes it is is simple as driving mum to the doctor's office. Other times it is as complicated as insulin injections or changing catheter bags. "Sometimes it is dropping in on mum and dad at the end of the work day and other times it is living with your wife of 65-plus years as she surrenders to the ravages of dementia, does not know who you are, cannot be left alone and must be fed and toileted." Health Minister Terry Lake said the province has increased investments in home health services over the past 10 years, and is working with health authorities to shift from hospital to homecare as the population ages. Mackenzie said the number of adult day program clients and days utilized has declined in the last three years, and the number of respite beds at care facilities also appears to be down. The survey found that only half of the clients registered for home support reported receiving a home visit in the previous seven days. The report and other services are available at the Seniors Advocate website, www.seniorsadvocatebc.ca.

A Chilliwack man remains in critical condition at Royal Columbian Hospital, following a serious biking accident at the Fairfield Island bike park. James Murphy, who grew up in Hope, was at the park with his family when he was involved in a mountain bike accident on Sept. 7. Murphy experienced blunt force trauma to his abdomen, severing his renal artery attached to his left kidney, a family member said. "Jim was rushed by ambulance to the Chilliwack ER where they did an amazing job of trying to stabilize him," said Mike Chamberlin, Murphy's brother in law. "With the massive blood loss, Jim depleted the blood supplies from Chilliwack and Abbotsford blood banks. In order to secure Jim’s survival he was rushed to RCH."

Opinion Published by Black Press Limited at 540 Wallace St., Hope, BC V0X 1L0

Plastic exacerbates ocean problem Where humans go, litter follows. We are unarguably the most wasteful species on the planet. Along benches, pull-outs, river banks, and forestry roads in the Skagit Valley, shotgun shells by the million, appliances, TVs, broken bits of furniture, and abandoned garbage clutter the backcountry. The irresponsible lowlifes who dump this stuff for target practice really couldn’t care less about the consequences, the hazards to people, and the dangers facing wildlife from all the glass and shards of plastic embedded in what could otherwise be walking or grazing areas. If garbage is a big problem in the local backcountry it’s a huge problem in the oceans where plastics have become the DDT of the modern age. Back in the 1960s, author Rachel Carson sounded the alarm in her book Silent Spring about the impact of pesticides on wildlife and collapsing populations of bird species due to eggshell thinning. Now, scientists see a parallel with floating plastics and micro-plastics threatening marine life at every level of the food chain. Since the 1970s waste plastic carried by ocean currents has swirled into huge concentrations popularly known as the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Some claim it is twice the size of Texas. But in reality there are several of these huge patches. According to a recent study published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS), plastic waste concentrations have now reach 580,000 pieces per square kilometre and it is increasing exponentially, doubling every 11 years. The Australian and U.K.-based authors said that a review of the UN Convention on Biological Diversity documented over 600 species from micro-organisms to whales that are affected by marine plastic waste mainly from ingestion. This not only creates a potential blockage in the gut but organ damage from leaching toxins. A study published in February this year in the journal Science estimated that between four and 12 million tons of plastic are dumped into the ocean annually. Researchers from the University of California Santa Barbara looked at 192 coastal countries and their plastics disposal in 2010. They calculated that eight million metric tons of shopping bags, toys, bottles, food wrappers, and other plastic waste drifted into the world’s oceans that year. Of even greater concern is the pervasive, almost invisible, contamination of micro-plastics a millimeter or smaller in size and which have been found everywhere from layers of sediment in deep ocean to the frozen Arctic. With particles this small, birds mistake them for fish eggs and digest them. Add to that the fact that plastics contain harmful chemicals such as Bisphenol A, phthalates, and flame retardants that can impact the endocrine system and contain toxic components linked to cancer. Moving up the marine food chain, these residues could get into commercial food stocks and, ultimately, be eaten by humans. And when you add plastics pollution to coastal development, climate change, warming waters, acidic oceans, toxic algae blooms, and overfishing, it shouldn’t surprise anyone that fish stocks have halved since 1970 with some stocks down 75 per cent according to a recent World Wildlife Fund report.

Federal leaders spar on economy Tom Fletcher Black Press The three contenders for the prime minister's office clashed in their second debate Thursday evening in Calgary, where slumping oil prices and industry layoffs framed a discussion on the economy. NDP leader Tom Mulcair accused Conservative Stephen Harper of having a "rip and ship approach" to natural resource development, adding that Harper "put all of his eggs in one basket, and then dropped the basket." Harper said it is "simply false" that the oil industry's woes represent the entire economy, and overall it continues to perform well and produce more tax revenue despite a 40 per cent reduction in small business taxes and other tax cuts. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau said his plan also includes reduction in small business taxes, and he emphasized he is the only leader willing to raise personal income taxes on the wealthiest one per cent of income earners, to finance a cut for the middle class. Moderated by David Walmsley, editor of The Globe and Mail, the debate drew out differences between the three established party leaders on several topics. Greenhouse gases: • Mulcair favours a cap-and-trade system, but he avoided questions about what his system would cost the economy or consumers. The NDP will "enforce overarching sustainable development legislation," he said. • Trudeau defended his position that each province should address emissions in its own way. He said Mulcair wants to impose a national bureaucracy, including on B.C., which Trudeau called a world leader in use of carbon tax. • Harper said carbon taxes are about revenues to government, not the environment. He

said under his 10-year administration, Canada has seen a decline in emissions while the economy grew, adding that his government invests $1 billion a year in alternative energy. Infrastructure: • Trudeau defended his plan to run three deficits of up to $10 billion to finance roads and other infrastructure, with interest rates at a low ebb and Canada's debt relative to the size of the economy declining. • Mulcair called Trudeau's plan "reckless and uncosted," while the NDP calls for steady investment over 20 years. • Harper said over 10 years, his government has spent 15 times what the previous Liberal government spent on infrastructure. That includes record deficits for public works projects in the wake of the 2009 economic crisis. Taxation: • Harper said the other parties promise tax relief for small businesses, but their plans to increase Canada Pension Plan and Employment Insurance premiums amount to a payroll tax 10 times as big as their small business tax cuts. • Mulcair said he will raise income tax from 15 to 17 per cent for large corporations, but he believes individuals are paying their fair share now. Mulcair reminded viewers that Trudeau has supported Conservative budgets, and his first vote in Parliament was to support Harper's tax "giveaway" to big business. • Trudeau emphasized that his is the only plan that increases taxes for bank executives and other wealthy individuals as well as on banks, while reducing income tax on the middle class. Green Party MP Elizabeth May wasn't invited to the Globe debate, but chipped in with videos on her Twitter account. In one, May noted that there was no discussion of "investor state agreements" such as one with China that have intruded on Canada's sovereignty.

Letters Strengthening the health system Instead, the current federal government under Stephen Harper plans to cut $36 billion in health funding and refuses to meet with the provinces on health care. The vast majority of Canadians want to see federal leadership in public health care. All parties would be wise to provide voters with a compelling plan for strengthening the system we all rely on. Edith MacHattie, BC Health Coalition

Legislation for human ignorance To be fair, the media outlets don’t publish the true savagery of humans towards animals, pit bulls being one of those unfortunate victims. If Ms. Welbourne would like to direct her attention to Yulin Dog Eating Festival, she will get a better glimpse of man’s true treatment towards both dogs and cats. While we are half a world away from that horrific abuse, Canadians do not have the right to sit in smug self-satisfaction.  The media uses words like animal cruelty, when the words torture, starvation and abuse would be closer to reality.  How many shelters in this country flow over with animals

that have had to be rescued from their ‘owners.’ To be fair the majority of pit bull hatred and fear comes from whining women who demand that we smooth out every bump in the sidewalk, so that they and their families do not suffer the indignities of watching where they are going and what they are doing. No doubt if pit bulls were legislated out of existence they would quickly turn their sights upon another fearful threat in their environment. The first question out of peoples’ mouths regarding our onecanine, floppy-eared, bouncy mutt is ‘What breed is he?’   Our

answer is ‘He’s a pit bull.’ The next question is ‘Is he mixed with something?’ ‘No, he’s full pit-bull.’ It’s scary to think that the majority of pit-bull haters would probably not be able to accurately identify one since they have a specific, media driven image in their minds which rarely exists. I wonder how many dogs were put down because they have pit-bull like characteristics that don’t exist in real life? My preference is to set up legislation for human ignorance.  I suspect Canada would be a much safer place. Tina Laursen

Hope respects signage laws The Re-Elect Mark Strahl Campaign team would like to thank the good people of Hope for their support of our campaign’s decision to respect Hope’s political sign law, while the other parties openly violated it. As promised, we respected the law and put up dozens of large signs and dozens of lawn signs on September 19 – the first day that Hope’s sign law allowed them to be raised.

The Re-Elect Mark Strahl campaign believes that we have a duty to respect election laws, both locally and nationally. Now that Hope’s law allows it, voters who would like a Mark Strahl lawn sign can order one by visiting his website at markstrahl.ca, or by calling 604-769-2202. Jeremy Giesbrecht

Scrutiny needed for refugee crisis persecuted, tortured and abused, and the economic refugees who escaped with all their money for their own financial reasons. This particular refugee explosion is very different from migration challenges in the past. There are many hidden dangers that cannot be solved with goodwill alone. The ISIS statements that they would flood Europe with “radicalized refugees” truly hits a raw nerve. When you see the many healthy appearing, assertive young men claiming refugee status, you start to wonder, are all of them true refugees? Why did these young men not stay in their homeland to try help

free their country from the ISIS regime, as they should? Could the ISIS threat have come to fruition already? It is a mighty scary thought indeed. We need to do all we can to help the first type of refugees and the sooner the better. The ones fleeing for economic reasons, undeniably need a good second look. The cautious approach of our Federal Government to screen refugees is commendable indeed.   Thank you Prime Minister Harper. We truly do appreciate that. Lets hope it will stay that way.   Gertie Pool

The current refugee crisis begs for scrutiny. The feasibility of terrorists gaining entry, amongst them, is very real. Here is why.  February 18, this year, various internet reports and The Daily Mail News recorded that ISIS threatened to flood Europe with 500,000 migrants and force half a million Libyan migrants as a “psychological weapon” against Europe and the West. No one paid much attention at the time.     One can still check these threats on the internet today. Studying the latest reports, suggests there seems to be two types of migrants streaming in at an unbelievable pace. Those who have lost all they had, who were

The Canadian Medical Association estimates that if we had the home and community care infrastructure to look after seniors who are currently warehoused in Canadian hospitals, we could free up $2.3 billion a year in our health care system. Canadians pay some of the highest drug prices in the world. A national drug plan would save an estimated $11 billion.  But a national seniors care strategy and a nation drug plan have something in common: they require leadership from our federal government.

As the new school year begins, children and teens will feel more stress and pressure. A certain amount of stress in our lives is normal and helps drive achievement. In fact, learning how to cope with stress and deal effectively with the demands of life are important skills that teens and young adults must develop to have happier, healthier, more productive and resilient adulthoods. Kids have always experienced stress. In my practice, however, kids seem more stressed than ever — by academic demands, by parental pressure, by the constant social media presence in their social relationships, and by their own expectations of themselves and their fears for the future. The 2013 McCreary Adolescent Survey of 60,000 BC youth found that 83 per cent of all youth said they had been stressed in the last month. Girls are more likely than boys at every age to report extreme stress —feeling so stressed that it prevented them from functioning properly. When stress builds with no release, it can lead to anxiety, depression, and despair. As the school year starts, here are seven proven steps that you and your kids can take to better cope with stress this year. 1.) Have a family routine: The more reliable and regular the routine at your home, the more stable and in control your children will feel. Regular times for getting up, going to bed, doing homework, having dinner, doing chores, and engaging in extracurricular activities all enable children to create a schedule for themselves and know what to expect. Numerous research studies have shown that regular sit down family dinners are associated with increased self-esteem and school success and lower rates of eating disorders, alcohol and substance use, and feelings of depression or thoughts of suicide. 2.) Limit and monitor screen time: Social and peer group issues for many youth cause greater stress than academic pressure. In previous generations home was a refuge from that social stress. Now social media amplifies that stress 24/7. Set limits for time spent online, and monitor what is happening with your youth online. Talk to your kids about how to be safe and how to conduct themselves with social media. 3.) Ensure enough sleep: Young children need at least 12 hours of sleep a night and teenagers at least nine or ten, but many are getting much less. Adequate sleep reduces stress and increases coping skills. Don't let kids sleep with their cell phones or laptops as late night screen time, as well as texts

and emails, prevents good quality sleep. Limit caffeinated drinks; make sure you model good sleep habits, too. 4.) Get regular exercise: One of the best ways to manage stress is to move. Recent studies have found that activity out-of doors, such as walking or running in nature, has great stress reduction power too. 5.) Don't over schedule: A certain amount of extracurricular activity is good for kids — it teaches them new skills, creates new friends, gives them exercise. But so many young people have so much on their plate they become overwhelmed and exhausted. Give them unscheduled downtime, too. 6.) Engage in activities that provide personal value and meaning: Studies show that engaging in activities that help youth feel connected to the world and provide personal value and meaning are good for stress reduction. This can mean something different for everyone and can take the form of religious worship, nature walks, meditation, uplifting art, music, or books or any other spiritual connection that helps provide purpose and perspective to our lives. 7.) Learn some key stress-reduction skills: Cognitive behavioural techniques (CBT) like relaxation breathing, visualization, mindfulness meditation, thought stopping, "chunking" big tasks into smaller, doable pieces and other skills can help manage stress. In the next column, I will talk in depth about some key CBT skills that we all should know how to do.

A charming little hen in the town of Hope, woke up one morning and decided to do something extraordinary — she said to herself, it’s time to lay an egg, but not just any egg and that’s exactly what she did. The spotted black and white Barred Rock hen did something stupefying, even mystical — she laid one large egg, with another egg inside, much to her owner’s surprise, amazement and delight. “She’s only six months old, and I think she laid one more like it — I have it set aside, but I don’t want to break it,” Marie Barber, (backyard chicken keeper) told The Hope Standard. The little hen has already received attention from the BC Egg Marketing Board, (who have never heard of this happening before) and Barber is looking forward to discussing her little feathered inspiration. “I’ve never seen it before — two eggs at once. I had company over and I brought it in and it’s just amazing — I can’t believe it.” Barber has had backyard chickens, long before it was trendy, and she’s been raising them with her family for well over twenty years. She suggested the high quality of her gorgeous looking eggs is partly due to a combination of an oyster shell diet and layer pellet. “It’s great to have fresh eggs for baking and they’re good quality — they are nice and thick and have an orange-yellow colour,” she said. “It’s so nice to be baking and not have to run to the store for more eggs. The eggs which are large and have a brown hued shell are something to be commented on, as Barber proudly showed the two yolked egg and its twin to The Hope Standard. Barber used to have a miniature donkey on her acreage — it was given a straw hat with a hole for ears, which she often showcased for amused bystanders. Of her extraordinary animal companions, there were two others that were mentioned.

A day in the life at Tillicum

ERIN KNUTSON / THE STANDARD

Tillicum members enjoy making fridge seals as part of their weekly work program.

Tillicum Centre is a life skill, job readiness, recreation program based in Hope that provides support to people and their families living with disabilities. The day time program offers a unique setting, where participants can actively engage in recreational and skill-building activities that help to improve their quality of life, while helping to instill work skills and habits that cross over into job opportunities, and encourage a higher level of self-sufficiency. “I love it here, especially the staff members — they are very good to us,” said Ionela Garrett, a

client at Tillicum. “We always have a lot of fun.” The program gives opportunities to individuals who are able to work in a professional setting, and in programs like Lunch with the Bunch. Rona currently employs four Tillicum clients and Hope Garden Centre employs three individuals — there are also a couple of individuals who do yard work at The Grace Baptist Church. “There are currently 16 individuals in the program —and some of them work outside of Tillicum for a few hours each day, and

others do in-house work,” said Program Coordinator and Staff Member Naomi Bergstrom. “One of the most challenging things is coordinating schedules.” Certain clients at Tillicum have to be accompanied by a staff member to job sites, and that can be tricky when managing the Centre and providing proper in house supervision for daily operations with 15 other people to look after. All individuals are compensated for the work they do with the Centre’s ongoing bottle recycling, and fridge seal making programs. “They get paid for the work they do, and we help them to account and manage the money they make with ledgers,” said

Bergstrom. “They have extra money for outings, lunch, movies or whatever they want — it gives them a sense of independence.” Fostering a good work ethic and a level of self-sufficiency is an important part of Tillicum’s work, as well as providing a fun, socially engaging atmosphere, where clients can feel at home, play games and enjoy each other’s company. “Our clients are all at different levels, and we have to work within that framework — it’s about providing a quality of life for these individuals,” said Bergstrom.

The wedding guitar caper MUCK YOU. MUCK YOUR FRIENDS.

MUCK EVERYONE. IT’S FOR CHARITY.

CHILLIWACK, BC Saturday, October 3 Register at muckMS.ca Dicklands Farms

A very special guitar was stolen in Hope last Monday — the beloved object was a wedding gift for Whitney Chan, from her husband Brian on their wedding day. The distraught couple started a search and rescue mission to retrieve the guitar, with the help of friends. “On Saturday, a small group went with Whitney and I to put up posters along the highway and nearby towns, all the way to Hope,” said Brian. “There was a pawn store in Chilliwack that I wanted to visit, so Whitney and I arrived at Nuway Pawn Broker and handed them a poster.” The couple were directed to another shop across the street to hand out more posters, while their friends covered the streets, spreading the message of a stolen musical treasure. “It was a long day and I felt discouraged on the way back, but Whitney reminded me to have faith and trust.

case still in tact, there were a few personal inscriptions on the guitar that had been erased. “Inside the sound hole, “for my brother Caleb” had been chiseled out and the leather strap

with my name on it is missing,” said Brian. “We didn’t ask many questions — we don’t know whether the perpetrator had a change of heart or was just trying to sell it, but we were elated that

it had been found. A rep from Common Exchange noted that in her many years at the store, something like this, has only happened twice. “God is good, always, all times.”

Minimum wage rises 20 cents Tom Fetcher Black Press B.C.'s minimum wage has risen 20 cents to $10.45 an hour, the first annual increase since the provincial government tied it to

the B.C. consumer price index. It's the first increase since 2012, when the wage was increased to $10.25. For restaurant and pub servers, the minimum wage rises from $9 to $9.20. Jobs Minister Shirley Bond has said the

discount from the general minimum wage will remain at $1.25 to account for income earned in tips. NDP labour critic Shane Simpson called the increase "dismal" and "paltry." B.C. Federation of Labour president Irene

Lanzinger said by the end of 2015, B.C. will have the second lowest minimum wage in Canada, of all the provinces. "Seattle will reach $15 an hour by 2017, Alberta by 2018," Lanzinger said. "B.C.'s minimum wage will reach $15 per hour by 2034."

A powerful connection to what matters most .

Fishing is reopened Tom Fletcher Black Press The B.C. government has lifted its fishing ban in the Okanagan region, joining most areas of the South Coast region where fishing was reopened earlier this week. Fishing is reopened on the Similkameen, Kettle, Middle Shuswap and Okanagan River mainstem, after rain and cooler water temperatures reduced the risk to fish stocks. In the South Coast region, the Seymour and Coquihalla Rivers remain closed, due to barrier restrictions from rockslides that restrict upstream migration of steelhead. The restrictions and reopening are co-ordinated with Fisheries and Oceans Canada regulations for migratory salmon.

B.C. government liquor stores are collecting donations to help the Red Cross in its efforts to assist refugees fleeing four years of civil war and recent terrorist invasion. Customers are asked to donate $2, $5 or multiples of that amount. Red Cross is providing emergency supplies to Syrian refugees including food, water, clothing, temporary shelter and hygiene items. The federal government has established a $100 million fund to match donations from individual Canadians and registered charities, from now to the end of 2015. The B.C. government has also established a $1 million fund to help Syrian refugees settling in B.C. The previous donation drive by BC Liquor Stores collected $102,000 for assistance to people affected by wildfires in the Rock Creek and Oliver areas.

Parents can begin lessons in money management with kids as young as three Michelle MacDonald Envision Financial With the return to classes, brown-bagged lunches and regular learning routines back in full force, there’s no better time for parents to focus on their children’s financial know-how.  “Money management isn’t a subject that most schools focus on, and so it’s really up to parents to teach these foundational skills,” says Jennifer Flentge, an investment expert with First West Credit Union’s Envision Financial division “Be honest and open about money with your children in an age appropriate manner. Look at everyday situations as opportunities to learn. For example, let them know how much is budgeted for entertainment and suggest alternatives like borrowing a movie from the library instead of going to the movie theatre if that budget is already met.”   Research suggests that children’s financial habits are formed as early as age seven, signalling a need for conversations about money to begin as soon as a child is old enough to understand the basic concepts.  From age three to five, these lessons can include the difference between saving and spending, what a need is versus a want and the idea that sometimes you need to wait before you can have something—a lesson easily demonstrated with saving, spending and sharing jars.  “Setting up three money jars is a very visual and tangible way to see where their money goes. The spending jar would be for them to spend as they wish, a saving jar to save and the third for charitable giving. Alternatively, with today’s tech-savvy children, allowing them to do this online is effective and provides a great opportunity to learn about earning interest on their savings.”

Between age six and 10, financial skill-building should grow to include candid explanations of your decision-making process in everyday situations (choosing between brand name and generic products in the grocery store, for example—or calculating your family’s savings when buying in bulk.) It’s also an essential time to give kids a bit of money to learn with, while tweens and young teenagers can begin to understand compound interest and the difference between good and bad debt.    Flentge also recommends that parents avoid linking weekly allowance to household chores. “Chores are a part of life and living with people in a home,” she says. “Teach your children that the basics such as cleaning their rooms, making their beds, and setting the table are expected and they can earn extra money by washing the car, taking the bottles to the recycling depot or setting up a lemonade stand.  “The best financial help any parent can give their child is information and experience— and your financial advisor can help you identify everyday teachable money moments if you’re unsure of where to start.”   About Envision Financial Envision Financial is a premier provider of banking, investment and insurance services for residents and businesses throughout the Fraser Valley (including Hope,) Lower Mainland and Kitimat regions. As a division of First West Credit Union, B.C.'s third-largest credit union with 53 branches and 40 insurance offices throughout the province, Envision Financial brings innovative products, an extensive branch network and local decision making to the banking experience.

It was an oddity and delight to be witnessed by curious onlookers during the 47th annual Brigade Days celebration. Below are the winners of the prestigious event: George Coton (344) Cheryl Cummings (359) Kim Briscoe (333) Cheryl Davidson (210) Hiro Takeda (194) Reed Golos (197) C Corbett (16) John Blessin (292) Ryan Mohle (405) Tom/Denise Desorcy (257) Donna Bellingham (last) 77 The top ten winners will be awarded $100 and a trophy, and the last winner (Donna Bellingham/ No.77) will be awarded a scrumptious duck dinner for two at 293 Wallace Street Restaurant in Hope.

Golf tournament a hit

HOPE PENTECOSTAL ASSEMBLY

Lou Kraszlany Special to The Standard One of the many activities that took place during the 47th annual Hope Brigade Days, was the Autumn Leaves Golf Tournament at the Hope Golf Club. It turned out to be a fabulous way to spend a glorious weekend. Hope Golf Club Operators Kerry and Claudette Krahn, along with their clubhouse staff, grounds staff, volunteers and a plethora of local sponsors, helped to make this year’s event one of the most memorable for all 123 participants, especially Ray Johnston. Ray scored a hole-in-one on the 160-yard 15th hole during the Sunday afternoon round and was the winner of $10,000, sponsored by the Hope Men’s Club, and a 4-day 3-night Fairmont Golf Trip contributed by Gardner GM. If a hole-in-one didn’t excite everyone, maybe an amateur shooting a round of 65, could. Low gross winner Dave Zeiler shot the seven under par round on Saturday morning. This is a round of golf similar to those by professional golfers on the PGA tour. Dave followed this up with another good round to come out on top for the second straight year. The overall low net winner was Doug Hume. Approximately 20, Hope Golf Club members took part and were led by third flight low gross winner Glen DuPre, first flight third place low gross winner Chad Erickson of Prince George, second flight third place low net winner Chris Manahan, fourth flight third place low gross winner John Norman and third flight fourth place low net winner Lou Kraszlany. Congratulations and a thank you to all participants for supporting this year’s event and we look forward to the 2016 edition of the Hope Autumn Leaves. The success of the tournament is evident from the continued presence of a full field of participants and the many who return year after year. As well, it’s always great to see some of our past members who have moved from the Hope area. To check out all of the results, please access the “events” section of the Hope Golf Club website at hopegolfclub.com Hope Golf Club welcomes everyone for Ladies Day on Tuesdays at 9 a.m. and Men’s Night at 4:30 p.m. on Wednesdays for the remainder of September and beyond, depending on weather conditions.

The Boondock Bike Jam was the first-ever Hope Bike Park competition during the 47th annual Brigade Days. The event was a success as organizers elicited 30 participants for three different categories.

Boondock Bike Jam rocks the bike park The Hope Standard The Hope Bike Park had its first-ever competition — The Boondock Bike Jam — on Brigade Days Saturday. Organizers Zane MacDonald and Tyler Brown, pulled together 30 participants for three categories: open, which targeted the younger riders — and amateur and pro, which were judged by the riders in their groups. “I’d say 70 per cent of them were from town,” said MacDonald. “The open class started at 2 p.m. and the pros were done by 4:30 p.m. We had 60 to 80 people watching, if not more.” The judged categories were split into mountain bike and BMX classes, and a rider who worked for the Jay Hoots crew came back to town to show his mountain bike jumping skills. “Alan Mandel was one of the builders,” said MacDonald. “He’s originally from Wyoming. He and Garrett Robertson from Kelowna are both sponsored riders. “Garrett did a back flip with a tail whip and won first place and Alan came second. Austin Christopher from town was also in there. “In the pro BMX, Zack Laaback from Hope, came first. He back flipped both jumps in a row, probably six or seven feet in the air off the top of the jump,” said MacDonald. “Second went to Ronnie Coombe, who grew up in Hope but lives in Chilliwack now. He tried a front flip but didn’t

quite land it. He landed on his feet and let the bike go.” Matt Juhasz of Vancouver won top spot in the amateur mountain bike competition, said MacDonald. “He was the oldest rider, maybe in his 40s and he donated his prize — a wasp camera, back to us, and we gave it to a kid who had helped with the jumps. Kobe Russell, from Vancouver was second.” “Wilson Rousseau from Hope won first in the BMX. He had pretty good style,” said MacDonald. “Josh Fleet was second and definitely the youngest in the judged events.” Rousseau said, “It was the first actual comp I’ve been in,” though he put in lots of practice hours. “I was up there whenever I could, every day, if it wasn’t raining. “Two weeks before the competition, we went and scraped the gravel off the jumps. It was like riding on marbles before that,” said the 14 year-old. “I probably did about ten jumps,” said Rousseau, listing a few stunts that you can check out on YouTube, “a tuck nohand, a toboggan, a one-footed t-bog and a disco can." No flips,” he added. “I can’t flip on those jumps yet.” MacDonald commented that Rousseau was a regular fixture at the bike park during the construction phase, helping out whenever he could. He was also one of the first Bike Park customers at Fraser Canyon Hospital. “I broke my wrist when the jumps first got built” he recalled. “I had a cast for three weeks but it bugged me when

I rode, so I cut it off with my knife. It felt okay after another week.” Rousseau’s prize was a McNeil Varsity BMX frame, donated by Sixth Avenue Sports. “I’m building up a bike now,” he said. "I’ve got the forks, bars and pedals so far.” Kelly Pearce of Hope Mountain School and Stephanie Hooker of Pathway Partners played voluntary leadership roles in the development of the Bike Park and trails in Coquihalla River Park. Both were pleased to see the park used for its inaugural competition. Hooker said, “It was very gratifying to be part of the team fundraising and constructing the park. It’s tremendous to see local riders taking ownership of the park and hosting the first official competition. It was a blast. Hope kids are pros already and the park has only been open for two months.” Pearce added, “It was exciting to see the park full of young people, spanning every skill level. Zane and Tyler, did a great job of organizing and promoting the event — and gathering a huge supply of prizes for the kids. Local businesses were very generous with the prizes they donated and the kids were thrilled to receive them. As one of many volunteers who worked for hours to help make the Hope Bike Park happen, it's so satisfying to see it finished, looking beautiful, and full of families enjoying themselves in a forest setting. It's another wonderful recreational asset that makes our town great to live in,” said Pearce.

COMING EVENTS

May 12, 1929 - Sept. 10, 2015

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Charlotte Ellen Graham of Hope B.C. Ellen was born in Nanaimo, BC on May 12, 1929. Ellen passed away in her family home September 10, 2015. Ellen was well known in Hope and often seen around town, always taking the time to stop and visit. Sharing her humour, knowledge and witty conversation. She always knew and was interested in what was happening with her family, community and the world at large. Everyone who knew Ellen, would always say... Ellen loves her family. Ellen was the oldest daughter of Charles and Lavina Prest and was raised in Chilliwack and Laidlaw B.C. She spent her childhood in Laidlaw attending a one room school house and has always loved to learn and read books, winning awards for her story writing. She met her husband, Buzz as he tugged on her pony tails on her first day in school. They were married over 65 years. Growing up, Ellen loved to go to church with her sister and ‘sing away’, watch her brothers in their sports, go to the local dances, work in the hop yards, and help with her brothers and sisters. She married Buzz in 1949 and they had five children, four sons and a daughter. Ellen lived for her children. So proud of each and every one of them and would take any opportunity to talk about them. She supported them in all their endeavours including never missing a basketball game and number one fan of the Hope Mustangs, she travelled to watch them play baseball, hockey, figure skating and could always be heard from the stands supporting her kids.  Ellen was an amazing cook and spent many years working for the Hope Drive-In and later at the Seniors Home, and she’d laugh that she didn’t stop cooking for the seniors until she became one herself. She made the best potato salad, spaghetti and mashed potatoes and would ensure every child would have their favourite meal when they came to visit. She was an amazing writer and story teller and would always take the time to write letters and cards to those she loved. So eloquent, witty and knowledgeable about everyone and everything. At any gathering everyone couldn’t wait for Ellen to say a few words. Her hands behind her back and sharing a story with perfect delivery. She loved to play bingo at the Eagles Hall, attend a local flea market, visit a restaurant or shop the local grocery store, who all knew her and loved her - always going the extra mile to help her out.  Ellen loved the simple things in life. Had no desire to

get on a plane as everything she wanted was right in her home - her family, her friends, her pets, her little trinkets and anything that would serve as a memory of a time she treasured, her view of the school yard and enjoying the afternoon breeze on her front porch. She loved the sounds of the birds, the running squirrels and the people going by.

VINTAGE RETRO & ANTIQUE MARKET October 3 & 4, 2015 Lose Happy Hours Rummaging about the Huge Amount of Choice For Every Conceivable Collecting Taste, From Traditional to Off Beat AT THE TRADEX EXHIBITION CENTRE 1190 CORNELL STREET Abbotsford, B.C. V2T 6H5

She was always up on current events and would have comment about her theories, loved watching late night television, from Johnny Carson to David Letterman, was always up on the latest novel and would spend hours enjoying a book. She loved the Canucks, movies and music and would have Neil Diamond playing full blast as she enjoyed her day with the doors and windows wide open. She wanted to see Michael Jackson and enjoyed every minute from row eight in Vancouver. And her love for music never faded with her latest request for tickets to see Neil Young on October 5 of this year. Ellen had 13 grand-children and loved them dearly. Often making them perform Christmas plays, enjoy sing-a-longs, piñatas on the front lawn, Easter Egg hunts, big dinners with tables full of her wonderful food, bringing them together for any special occasion, or just sharing a Pepsi and a conversation about what’s happening in their lives. She made sure every birthday was celebrated with cake and festivities and making everyone feel loved and special. She is survived by her five children, Don (Michelle) Graham, Ken (Karla) Graham, Ed (Christy) Graham, Bonny Graham, Rick (Nerine) Graham and 13 grandchildren, Matthew, Farley, Taze, Byron, Kara, Courtney, Jason, Kelly, Taylor, Carter, Madison, Morgan and Mackenzie. Her brothers, Andy Prest, Ben Prest, and sisters Edie Graydon and Bev Prest and many nieces and nephews. She is predeceased by her husband of 65 years, Hewitt (Buzz) Graham and her brother Joe Prest and sister Doris (Prest) Josephson. A service and tea will be held Saturday, October 10, 2015 at the Eagles Hall (386 Fort Street) in Hope B.C. at 3:00 pm, followed by light refreshments and a celebration of life at 5:30pm for the evening, for those who wish to stay and share stories and reflect on the life of a wonderful mom, gramma, sister, aunty, cousin, friend, neighbour and long-standing resident of Hope B.C. She will be dearly missed and was loved by so many. She always enjoyed flowers and cards and both are welcome in her memory. Her ashes will be laid to rest on top Little Mountain Cemetery with her Prest relatives.
