Thanksgiving Food Drive a sensation Erin Knutson Hope Standard An anomaly occurred for the Thanksgiving Food Drive through Hope Community Services, which was a huge success this past week, as Hope broke food bank records. Things were looking bleak on the shelves of the downtown location, but with the help of a missionary couple from Calgary who stepped in and lent a hand, a ripple effect was sparked in the community that will put food in mouths and melt hearts. “We were given the opportunity to help out at the food bank and that is where we learned of the tremendous need and the bare shelves,” said volunteer and missionary from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Leslie Shaughnessy, who volunteered with her husband Gary as part of a mission trip the two started in May.

“It was heart-breaking and so sad to see the empty shelves, knowing that people were coming to get help and there was no food.” With a strategy in mind and a little help from maps printed at District Hall, the couple mobilized troops and set out to fill the empty shelves. “We needed to do something — so a seed of Hope was planted and we started the process of getting organized,” she said. “I put a note on the Hope Bulletin Facebook Page, and that’s when we truly found out what kind of people call Hope home — there was an outpouring of offers to help with the drive; so, with the logistics, maps, bags donated from Coopers and a group of youth to attach all 3,000 flyers to the bags, we began to see the spirit of the people shine.” The entire community of Hope stepped up in a combined effort that resulted in the culmination of 8000 pounds of food donations and $2,000 in mon-

etary contributions. The Shaughnessy’s plan to unite different neighbourhoods, conscript the scouts, the schools, the Fire Department, their Church and anybody with an extra pair of hands was wildly successful. The couple anticipated 20 per cent of their ideal quota and it was exceeded at an astounding 50 per cent. Mounds of bags crowded the 3rd avenue food bank location, as the donations kept pouring in. “Keeping up with everything has been a challenge,” said Shaughnessy of the inpouring of goods and volunteer services. Dedicated volunteers of all ages, tunneled relentlessly through piles upon piles of cans and goodies, pet food, tea and coffee to get the job done, in fact, they were still sorting late Thursday evening. “We are ecstatic —it’s been heart warming to see,” said Hope Community Services Executive Director,” Michele Thornhill.

Local politicians split over environmental ‘rights’ Tom Fletcher Black Press Over vocal objections from some representatives, local politicians have narrowly endorsed a call for an "environmental bill of rights" for B.C. at their annual convention. Calling it "an idea whose time has come," Richmond Coun. Harold Steves sponsored the motion Wednesday at the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in Vancouver. It calls for recognition of a right to "live in a healthy environment, including the right to clean air, clean water, clean food and vibrant ecosystems." Steves reminded delegates of a summer of smoke from forest fires and a drought that saw his Cache Creek farm run out of water. He noted the bill of rights has been supported by 36 municipalities around B.C., after a tour of local councils by the David Suzuki Foundation's Blue Dot campaign.

The idea was quickly challenged. "How is this resolution going to prevent forest fires and create clean air?" North Cowichan Coun. Al Siebring asked. "It's not." Williams Lake Mayor Walt Cobb dismissed the bill of rights movement as "David Suzuki propaganda" backed by urban people who don't understand that mining and forestry provide the lumber, copper and other products that build their homes and communities. Cobb said it already takes years of environmental review before resource extraction can be approved, "and if this passes, it will be another nail in the coffin of rural B.C." Chilliwack Mayor Sharon Gaetz urged support for the bill of rights, arguing it would "raise our consciousness." Victoria Mayor Lisa Helps quoted from a presentation to council by an 11-year-old boy and

joined other delegates in calling for the resolution to support future generations. Coquitlam Coun. Terry O'Neill listed a dozen provincial laws governing clean water, air pollution, public health and food safety, calling on the convention to focus on specific measures instead of asserting rights that are actually "a demand for others to do something for you." Nanaimo Regional District director Julian Fell agreed, saying four of the six rights proposed to his board are actually "entitlements." He called for the UBCM to declare that FILE PHOTO / BLACK PRESS water and air should be legally guaranteed to remain public Delegates vote on resolutions Wednesday at the Union of B.C.

New training a pain

FALL FRAME

Tom Fletcher Black Press B.C. teachers switching to the education ministry's new curriculum this year will use 10 hours of classroom time to train on it. Education Minister Mike Bernier announced the training plan Monday at the B.C. legislature, with teacher, trustee and parent representatives alongside. Bernier said training the first 2,000 teachers to deliver the new curriculum this year will cost $1 million and take the equivalent of two teaching days. It's up to local school districts to decide how that time is organized, but it may mean extra non-instructional days or parts of days when students would be sent home early. The new curriculum is being piloted this year for kindergarten through Grade 9 and will become mandatory across the province starting next fall. Curriculum updates for the higher grades are still in development. For the next two years, teachers across B.C. will use one of their current professional development days for curriculum training and an additional five hours, the equivalent of one classroom day, will also be devoted to the new curriculum. Bernier confirmed that the program is being implemented within existing budgets. The additional $1 million this year is to fund teacher training seminars and travel costs for rural teachers where the training isn't offered in their home districts. The training plan was announced with representatives of the B.C. Teachers' Federation, the B.C. School Trustees' Association, superintendents, principals and vice principals, parent advisory councils, independent schools, and the First Nations Steering Committee. BCSTA president Teresa Rezansoff said school boards will decide how to structure the training to "best meet the needs of teachers while minimizing any impact on student learning time."

with a stick and asking why we keep getting stung. Seonaigh MacPherson (NDP) For generations, Canada’s security has been built on a reputation as a honest broker and a partner for peace. Stephen Harper has badly damaged that reputation and reduced our standing in the world, so much so that Canada lost its seat at the UN Security Council. I look forward to working in a Tom Mulcair government to undo this damage. Together, we can restore Canada's global stature and provide leadership on key global issues like poverty and climate change. Even as he abandoned our traditional peacekeeping role, Stephen Harper has slashed veterans' benefits and closed Veterans Affairs offices across the country. Over the past decade, we have lost more Canadian soldiers to suicide than to combat in Afghanistan. This is profoundly wrong. New Democrats know that Canada must honour its obligations to women and men in uniform when they go into harm's way to uphold our security.   Mark Strahl (Conservative) Our Conservative government has been focused on keeping Canadians secure. We’ve cracked down on crime to protect our communities; taken the threat of jihadi terrorism seriously, both at home and abroad; and protected the economic well-being of Canadians by keeping taxes low, returning to a balanced budget and providing significant direct support to families and seniors. Protecting our fragile economy during this time of global economic uncertainty is our number one priority. While the other parties are promising higher taxes on families and seniors, higher payroll taxes on workers and employers and higher taxes on job creators, our Conservative government has a four year Economic Action Plan which will cut taxes and keep them low. Canada can’t afford the massive tax hikes and permanent deficits proposed by the Liberals and the NDP. Now is the time to protect our economy with the proven economic leadership of our Conservative government. NP Dorothy-Jean O'Donnell was not asked to answer this question as she had not been confirmed as a candidate when the question went out.

The following is the seventh question in an ongoing series of election questions posed to Chilliwack-Hope candidates posted at ChilliwackVotes.com. Security has been a major issue this election. Security, however, is broadly defined and attached to many different circumstances ranging from the environment, energy and the economy, to public safety and terrorism. What is the most immediate and pressing threat to our security and why? Thomas Cheney (Green) In regards to security,  it is vital to admit that we live in an incredibly safe country. We need to ensure security laws do not needlessly impede civil liberties. Concerning coincidences regarding the security services and groups ideologically opposed to government policy have already occurred. An example (of many) involves our former MP Chuck Strahl who was a lobbyist for Enbridge while sitting on the intelligence and security review committee (Strahl did resign once this became public). Based on this, it is concerning that groups opposed to the Northern Gateway Pipeline such as Dogwood Initiative and Forest Ethics were spied on by CSIS. The problem with the emphasis on security in a neverending "war on terror" is that it allows gross violations of due process. There is a saying from Ancient Rome, “Inter arma enim silent leges” which means “in war the law falls silent”.   Louis De Jaeger (Liberal) Rather than pander to the politics of fear, voters in this election want a government focused on economic security. Incomes are not keeping up with the cost of living and we are all falling further behind. Liberals have a strong economic plan that will create more jobs by nearly doubling federal infrastructure investment to almost $125 billion over the next 10 years. By cutting the middle class tax bracket by seven per cent we will put more money in your pockets. We will invest in much needed social infrastructure that will include affordable housing and accessible, inclusive child-care spaces. Nine out of 10 families in Chilliwack-Hope will receive more from the Canada Child Benefit program, lifting 315,000 Canadian children out of poverty. Our seniors' economic security will also be bolstered by an enhanced Canada Pension Plan and an increase in the Guaranteed Income Supplement for single, lower income seniors. Canadians know that a secure economy that works for the middle class means a country that works for everyone.   Alexander Johnson (Libertarian) We need to ask how can we ensure the safety and security of all Canadians. We can start by protecting their property. Allowing people to own the air above and ground below; not just the soil on top of their land. Remove protections of corporations and allow citizens to seek financial compensation from those who harm their property or devalue a resource such as poisoning well water with toxic run-off. We can allow safe and responsible gun ownership to be free from federal burden, free up $100 million of taxpayer money by removing the Chief Firearms Officer, and let provinces issue their own mandates that will better suit those people. We can turn the attention of CSIS away from Canadian citizens and towards foreign visitors and migrants. And we can bring our troops home, stop poking a bees nest

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

Do balanced budgets really matter? The federal election campaign has produced a jumble of conflicting claims about whether or not Canada has a balanced budget or a deficit, how it was determined, and whether it even matters. The definitive word on this came out last week, with the release of the Government of Canada Annual Financial Report, signed off by Auditor General Michael Ferguson. “The government posted a budgetary surplus of $1.9 billion for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2015, compared to a budgetary deficit of $5.2 billion in 2013-14,” the report says. “Revenues increased by $10.7 billion, or 3.9 per cent, from 2013-14, reflecting increases across all major revenue streams. Program expenses increased by $5.2 billion, reflecting increases in major transfers to persons and other levels of government, offset in part by a decrease in direct program expenses.” The Conservative government’s pre-election budget calculated that last year was in deficit, and this year would be the first in the black since 2008. Ottawa pundits say this “surprise surplus” was engineered with intentionally pessimistic budget estimates, so Prime Minister Stephen Harper would get a boost right about now. Liberal leader Justin Trudeau claimed last year’s surplus was partly generated by cuts to Veterans’ Affairs and Aboriginal Affairs. Wrong and wrong. Veterans’ Affairs spending was up 13 per cent, and Aboriginal Affairs spending rose nearly 30 per cent. (See page 16 of this report for details.) Trudeau has also insisted Canada is in recession now, which helps his suddenly adopted position that a Liberal government would run deficits for the next three years to build infrastructure. Harper ran the biggest deficits in Canadian history after the 2009 crash, bailing out auto makers and building lots of “shovel ready” infrastructure, as did the U.S. and other countries. The question raised by Trudeau’s plan is whether it’s a good idea to keep doing that without a financial crisis. France, for example, has run operating deficits every year since the early 1970s, although the current Socialist government vows to balance the books by 2017. France’s operating debt is now equal to 91 per cent of its Gross Domestic Product. Canada’s net debt-to-GDP ratio is currently around 30 per cent, down from frightening levels in the 1990s before the Chrétien government finally balanced the budget. (Fun fact: then-finance minister Paul Martin not only cut transfers to provinces, unlike the current government, he inflicted the largestever cuts to the CBC. Harper’s CBC cuts were part of government-wide reductions, again due to that 2009 crisis.) NDP leader Thomas Mulcair has promised to balance the budget every year of his mandate, should he form Canada’s first-ever socialist government. He will spend the rest of the campaign trying to reconcile this promise with the grandiose spending plans he has piled up. Meanwhile in B.C., Finance Minister Mike de Jong may have benefited from Harper’s lowball budget. In his first quarter update last week, de Jong reported that his February budget forecast is on track, with a $277 million surplus. This is despite a $300 million bill for forest firefighting, thanks to personal and corporate income tax revenue expected to be $374 million higher than budgeted. B.C. bases its tax revenue figures on federal estimates, and the ones they got early this year were clearly low. Understated or not, this is a nice problem to have.

Clark spends on rural communities, fire prevention Tom Fletcher Black Press Premier Christy Clark peppered her annual address to local politicians with spending announcements Friday, mostly aimed at smaller and rural communities. Clark emphasized the outsized contribution of small resource communities to the provincial economy, and said the extra help is made possible by the B.C. government's spending control that has left three straight budget surpluses. A $75 million "rural dividend" will be available over three years to communities of fewer than 25,000 people that are outside urban areas. The fund is to diversify local economies, but details won't be released until March 2016. Clark warned of increasingly severe forest fire seasons due to planetary warming, announcing a $10 million topup to B.C.'s forest fire prevention program to control fuel in interface areas. The program started in 2004 and has been criticized for focusing on local plans rather than action. The forests ministry says more than 780 square kilometres have been treated so far. Clark also announced a $90 million extension to the infrastructure fund for small communities, which started

last year and is funded 50-50 by the federal and provincial governments. It's available to communities under 100,000 people, covering up to two thirds of eligible projects, with applications accepted starting Oct. 30. Urban communities will likely benefit most from a $5 million addition to the province's "guns and gangs" strategy, which targets prolific and gang-related offenders and school programs to warn young people away from gang involvement. While Clark received a standing ovation before and after her speech to the Union of B.C. Municipalities convention in Vancouver, discussion before her arrival showed not everyone is pleased with the government's direction. An event that began with a small protest outside against the Site C dam project, beginning on the Peace River, ended with a resolution to reverse Victoria's forced exclusion of the affected land from the agricultural land reserve. The province imposed four-year election terms on local governments before last year's municipal elections.

coups were the norm for changing governments. The people could only hope and pray for democratic process, the respect of human rights and the freedom of expression.

Robin Hood approach for Trudeau? The policy proposal being suggested by Justin Trudeau to increase the income tax paid by the top 1 per cent of income earners must have been borrowed from Robin Hood – steal from the rich and give to the poor. As it happens this is what virtually all governments around the world have been doing for years – including Canada. Approximately half of our current federal government revenues consist of income tax payments amounting to 135 billion dollars. The top 1 per cent currently pay about 18 per cent of all income tax paid. The top 10 per cent of income earners pay about 55 per cent of these taxes and the bottom 50 per cent pay only 4 percent. I would say the top earners are paying a rather substantial share. If you look at the top rate of income tax charged

Oil ethics astray? The oil companies are raping this country with destruction and poor ethics. They have gone to selfserve stations to get rid of employees! This not only got rid of jobs, it also decreased safety in our streets and highways, with little or no thought to public safety. Their safety and environmental records are appalling. The prices of fuel are appalling and we should have full service with those prices. For more information, visit http://action.sumofus. org/a/shell-21-day-blowout/ Victor Mitchell

in other areas of the world, Canada is roughly in the middle at a combined federal and provincial income tax rate of 45.7 per cent. The United States has an average rate of about 47. 8 per cent.The Netherlands are at about 52 per cent and the average for all of Western Europe is 45.7 per cent — the same as Canada. Switzerland brags about its 20 per cent tax rate. It may be feasible to raise the top rate by a point or two, but a lot of people at these high income levels tend to have some flexibility as to where they call home and pay taxes. The Robin Hood approach may be attractive, but Trudeau should be careful not to kill the goose laying the golden eggs. Jack Carradice

As the leaves on the trees turn into a riot of colours, and the kiddies head back to school, everyone shifts gears toward a new season. Autumn is the perfect time to visit Manning Park Resort. There are lots of activities to take advantage of without the summer crowds. Lightning Lake is peaceful, quiet and the perfect setting to take a canoe and watch the birds. Bring along the old fishing rod and snag some of the trout that have eluded capture all summer. There are still boat rentals available at Lightning Lake on weekends, and mid-week boat rentals are available from the lodge until Thanksgiving. If you look up toward Mount Frosty — you can clearly see the larch trees have changed. Larches are the only coniferous trees that have needles and change colour from green to electric yellow, seasonally. This is happening now and usually lasts until the beginning of October. The larch stand on Mount Frosty is the prime spot to see them in all their glory. If you haven’t hiked to the peak of Mount Frosty yet, the cooler weather of fall is the perfect time to do it. It’s a nine-hour round-trip hike with an 1150 m-elevation gain. It’s great exercise and all hikers are rewarded not only with the yellow larch forest, but amazing views of the surrounding mountains

from the top. As it gets a little cooler, snow, dusting the mountaintops around the Fraser Valley may become evident. This means it’s time to gear up for winter to make sure you’re ready to hit the slopes this December. The Season Pass Early Bird rates are in effect only until October 31, 2015. Manning was among the only ski hills last winter that was open the entire winter season, with a base of more than a metre of snow for the majority of the season. By virtue of being at a slightly higher elevation and further inland, Manning fared better than most local mountains. Both the Alpine and the Nordic areas saw great conditions consistently all season long, even before the Nordic trails opened at the end of November, there was still great snowshoeing to be had. The mountain and its staff are looking forward to the same exceptional conditions this winter. Manning Park Resort is a four season family resort 45 minutes east of Hope on Highway 3, that offers year-round camping and accommodation, hiking, canoeing, skiing/boarding, 64 km of Nordic trails, snowshoeing and an outdoor ice rink.

Local Fire Chief Tom DeSorcy is on board for the discussion, and is intent on spreading the message of safety, awareness, and fire prevention online and through the prestigious 2015 campaign, which runs from October 4 to October 10. DeSorcy gave a candid tour of the three Fire Hall’s he currently oversees to The Hope Standard in a recent and enlightening outing. The District of Hope Fire Department was created in 1999 and the three halls are a combination of the Kawkawa Lake, Flood/Laidlaw/Silver Creek and Hope Fire Departments.

Each hall has its own specific task, whether it be storage, supplies, cleanup, hose drying, main operations, educational purposes or a combination of uses. Hope’s three fire halls are home to various fire apparatus including three Engines, two Tenders, a CAFS Squad and Incident Support Unit.

“Our training teaches safety — to be safe while driving, or operating equipment,” said DeSorcy. “We have had no casualties, and accidents are rare because of our safety first policy — buildings will burn, not people.”

STAY FIRE SAFE!

Often, movies like Backdraft create an image of false bravado prevalent in the consciousness of Canadian people, but the reality of the Fire Department is far removed from the traditional pomp associated with Hollywood. “There’s this idea of bravery related to dying on the job, but that’s not what we signed up for,” said DeSorcy on the mentality of the men and women who currently volunteer at the District of Hope Fire Department. Members train for basics on the job and on first aid, as well as occupational health and safety. Only three members of the department are medically trained and act as licensed first responders. DeSorcy is adamant that the skill-set of his members be effectively matched with his/her duties. Volunteer firefighters sacrifice their time and families on the job and are required to go out of town on Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC) training certifications.

Often family dinners, celebrations and holidays are broken-up when the pager goes off and mom/dad or husband/wife has to leave for duty — opportunities such as family friendly programs, ease the burden a bit according to DeSorcy. “There is a firefighters program with JI that allows spouses and children to come to the weekend training sessions,” he said. “That means a lot to the families.”

Findings indicate that over half of home related deaths caused by fire occur between the hours of 11 p.m. and 7 a.m. during prime sleep hours. The provincial government and Fire Chief’s across B.C. have banned together in a province-wide initiative to educate the public about the risks of poor fire safety, e s p e c i a l l y, the absence of properly fitted and up-to-date fire prevention gear around the home.

Fire safety on, accidents gone!

Local Fire Chief Tom DeSorcy is on board for the discussion, and is intent on spreading the message of safety, awareness, and fire prevention online and through the prestigious 2015 campaign, which runs from October 4 to October 10. DeSorcy gave a candid tour of the three Fire Hall’s he currently oversees to The Hope Standard in a recent and enlightening outing. The District of Hope Fire Department was created in 1999 and the three halls are a combination of the Kawkawa Lake, Flood/Laidlaw/Silver Creek and Hope Fire Departments.

SMOKE DETECTORS

Each hall has its own specific task, whether it be storage, supplies, cleanup, hose drying, main operations, educational purposes or a combination of uses. Hope’s three fire halls are home to various fire apparatus including three Engines, two Tenders, a CAFS Squad and Incident Support Unit.

“Our training teaches safety — to be safe while driving, or operating equipment,” said DeSorcy. “We have had no casualties, and accidents are rare because of our safety first policy — buildings will burn, not people.”

STAY FIRE SAFE!

Often, movies like Backdraft create an image of false bravado prevalent in the consciousness of Canadian people, but the reality of the Fire Department is far removed from the traditional pomp associated with Hollywood. “There’s this idea of bravery related to dying on the job, but that’s not what we signed up for,” said DeSorcy on the mentality of the men and women who currently volunteer at the District of Hope Fire Department. Members train for basics on the job and on first aid, as well as occupational health and safety. Only three members of the department are medically trained and act as licensed first responders. DeSorcy is adamant that the skill-set of his members be effectively matched with his/her duties. Volunteer firefighters sacrifice their time and families on the job and are required to go out of town on Justice Institute of British Columbia (JIBC) training certifications.

Often family dinners, celebrations and holidays are broken-up when the pager goes off and mom/dad or husband/wife has to leave for duty — opportunities such as family friendly programs, ease the burden a bit according to DeSorcy. “There is a firefighters program with JI that allows spouses and children to come to the weekend training sessions,” he said. “That means a lot to the families.”

Synergy a Couple's Journey to Abstraction is the new exhibit at the Hope Arts Gallery featuring the work of local artists Sylvia and William Edmonds. The show will start October 1st and run through the 28 with an opening reception held Saturday, October 3rd from 6 p.m. To 8 p.m. Creating art is an important part of the Hope couple's life. Both artists are interested in taking on what is typically overlooked by combining abstraction and technology, but in very unique and different ways. Sylvia is a self taught artist who is drawn to and intrigued by angle, texture and form. She creates digitally rendered paintings printed on rag paper, depicting visual abstractions that she reforms into art. Sylvia is an extremely driven, creative and artistically innovative person who also creates one of a kind wearable art. Blessed with a kiln, her artistic expression has expanded to glass (specifically jewelry making.) She uses both mediums to their fullest extent and her work is bursting with colour, life, and movement. Sylvia’s husband William plays with abstraction and technology, but in a much different way. William is interested in how people interact with technology. His current body of work questions anonymity, the release of personal information and relationships over the internet. William's rendering style is reflective of the trivial and influx landscape this presents. With an artistic process that utilizes many materials and mediums, he leaves the viewer enough visual clues, using text and photos, to try and find a meaning in the abstraction. Combining several different types of media, along with a labour intensive final printing process, demonstrates a deep layer in the artist’s visual exploration while

Teresa Walker above in her studio/shop holds up a piece she was working on for the recent Fashion Speaks Couture Fashion Show in Kamloops.

First Nations girls and women, who have been victims of violence and are missing, or have been murdered. Several items in red, were laid out on display in her sewing area. “I normally don’t like red, but I’ve pulled some fabrics for this show,” she said. Her red themed pieces include a mini skirt, and she was in the middle of creating a traditional red coat for the theme. After making the transition from the film industry in Vancouver, where she spent over thirty years and taught at the Vancouver Film School, Teresa decided to delve into the exploration of her own identity and style as an artist in Boston Bar, before relocating to Hope. Teresa has spent the past decade devoted to researching traditional fibers, and focusing on

clothing, jewelry, hats, bags and footwear, combining traditional and contemporary elements such as mixed media baskets, throwing-pottery and clay. The innovative artist is working with traditional materials such as pine needles, clay tiles with images, cedar bark, birch bark, soapstone, horn, silver and bone in her work. Now based in Hope with her two girls, Teresa is taking her experience and opening her doors to the public. The studio/shop is still in the process of fine tuning, but classes have commenced and she has a list of upcoming classes and events on her Facebook page. For more information or to check out her designs please contact Teresa at 604-8603276, heavennearthnativeart@hotmail.ca, or facebook.com/Heaven N Earth Native Art.

Local artist and fashion designer Teresa Walker is opening a new studio/shop space called Heaven N Earth Native Art in Hope, that offers a plethora of courses in art and design, as well as a place to showcase her unique and prolific body of work. Teresa considers herself a mixed-media artist and fashion designer, using different mediums to express her vision. A British Columbian by birth and an Aboriginal of Nlahzkampx, Okanogan and Lakota descent, Teresa is self taught and uses art as a platform in which she combines both traditional and contemporary mediums, while exploring her native heritage — a heritage she was largely divorced from earlier in her life. “People would ask me to put a native spin on something and I thought, why should I know that?” she told The Hope Standard of people seeing her as First Nations first. “I never thought of myself as a First Nations artist initially — I was just an artist.” Teresa’s studio is spacious, creative, and fun. Envisioning a place where people could come together to learn and grow creatively, while exploring hidden talents in a safe environment, was paramount to acquiring the space for the artist/teacher. “Native women have long been forgotten and ignored,” she said of her people, and of her desire to allow First Nations and non-First Nations men and women a voice in her studio. A shelf full of fierce and feminine warrior masks are on display in the studio, depicting important rituals of Teresa’s people and their warrior like symbolism, which includes an inclusion of the role of women. Teresa was in the middle of completing her final pieces for the Fashion Speaks Couture Fashion Show in Kamloops mid-September when she met with The Hope Standard — a red themed show dedicated to and in honour of

People who have owned freehold properties for most of their lives may not be accustomed to some of the expectations of strata living so it’s important to make sure you’re comfortable with the rules that will apply to both you and your neighbours before you make a purchase.

RCMP and HSS soccer face-off

ERIN KNUTSON/ THE STANDARD

An exhibition game placed a combined team of HSS girls and boys against HSS grads, school staff and RCMP members from Hope and Boston Bar on Friday. By the end of the game, the adults had adopted the name of “Team Hodge Podge.”

Hope Standard The Hope Secondary boys’ soccer season started off with a fun game that coach Jeremy Smith hopes will become an annual tradition. If it includes what happened before the game, that would be quite an event. Representatives from the Mondelez food company presented Hope Secondary and Hope Minor Soccer with a cheque for $5,000. Smith said it all started in April, during the lead-up Women’s World Cup. Mondelez was sponsoring a contest to get soccer clubs involved in a spirit-raising event called “Pride and Joy.” “You had to register, then get as many people as you could to download an app and use it during Canada’s game against China, in Vancouver,” said Smith. Organizations that got the most supporters to take part could win $5,000. Once the app was started on your phone or tablet, you could choose a noisemaker that generated noise through your device when you shook it. “I took a couple of students down to the fan centre outside BC Place (on June 6) and we watched the game on the big screen and shook our phones through most of the first half,” said Smith. “You could see the $5,000 adding up on the app.” Smith said the community really got behind the event. Hope and a soccer organization in Burnaby were the two groups in B.C. that won the top prize. There are a few areas where the money could be spent, that are still to be finalized. These areas could include uniforms for minor soccer, more equipment, or hosting tournaments in Hope. The exhibition game placed a combined team of HSS girls and boys against HSS grads, school staff and RCMP members from Hope and Boston Bar. By the end of the game, the adults had adopted the name of “Team Hodge Podge.”

Hodge Podge got on the board at six minutes, when Yvon McKay scored on a penalty kick. Rob Tumbas of the Boston Bar RCMP scored another off a volleyed cross at 18 minutes and Matt de Groot made good on a breakaway at 34 minutes, making it 3-0. HSS Mustang, Marcus Aubin, beat RCMP keeper Adam Tallboy just before the half. Aubin had a couple of clear chances in the second half that would have made for a tight score, but he put them over the net. McKay got his second past HSS keeper Nik Gauthier, early in the second half but Jacob Chisholm scored a beauty, 10 minutes into the half, connecting on a corner kick at knee height. Tallboy had no chance. With just under 10 minutes to go, Constable Rob Skinner brought Hodge Podge to a 5-2 lead and the kids answered back when Dryden Hambly slammed a shot off the crossbar. It fell to the feet of Ryan Wallace for a tap-in past Tallboy. Matt de Groot — who plays with McKay and Smith on the Valley Helicopters-sponsored Valley Choppers men’s team — unleashed a low, curling shot off the posts and in, from 25 yards out and Blake Deschenes made it a 7-3 final, when he dangled into the penalty area and scored in the final minute. Coach Smith, who played against the students, said he was pleased to see the Mustangs put three past his team. “It’s my first year coaching the boys and they’ve been a good group to work with. The game was a good chance to get people out and to see how the boys would work. We’ve only been practicing for about two weeks.” Silver Creek principal and Hope Minor Soccer president Bruce Becker is helping coach the team and the school’s athletics coordinator, Jason Fisher, is acting as fitness trainer. The boys started their season on the road, Tuesday, against Unity Christian. Their first home game is this Thursday, October 1 versus Abbotsford’s St. Jean Brébeuf. On October 15, they host Abby Christian.

RYCHTER, Edith Mary (Molly) November 5, 1927 - September 21, 2015 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved, mom, grandma, sister and friend, Molly. Molly passed away on Monday, September 21, 2015 at the Hope Fraser Lodge which she happily called her home for the past two years. Molly was born in London, England and during WW2 she met the love of her life, Eddie. They were married in 1949 and shortly after they immigrated to Vancouver, BC. Molly came over on the boat first by herself; this shows a sense of her strong character and her adventurous side and was joined by Eddie a few months later. They resided in the Vancouver, Surrey area for many years and then in 1972 they purchased the Red and White grocery store in Agassiz. They spent many happy years there and in 1978 they decided to become motel operators. They purchased the Imperial Motel and ran that as a family business for many years. Mom eventually retired around 1996 and lived in her beautiful house overlooking Lake of the Woods. Molly was predeceased by her husband, Eddie, her parents and her sisters, Anne and Olive. Molly leaves to mourn her son, George (Barb), her sister Kay in the UK and the light of her life her grandchildren: Sam(Gord) and Hedy (Joey). Hedy, even though you were not able to be with Grandma your loving and special secret (in letting grandma know of the baby’s name) was treasured and meant more to her than you know. Molly was a prolific reader and knitter and enjoyed many writing classes. Molly especially loved to play Scrabble and Crib and at this time would like to say a big thank you to her wonderful Scrabble group who continued to go every Thursday up to the Lodge to play a game or two with her. We hope you know how much this meant to our mom, and we sincerely thank you for your kind friendship with Molly. We also send our sincere thank you to the Fraser Hope Lodge and all the staff for being so kind and helpful to our mom. Molly really thought of you all as her family and so enjoyed the care and attention she was given. Special thanks to Marja Losier, Crystal and Linda Yearwood and to Sam for the gentle gift of your love, respect and caring in her twilight hours. This meant everything to all of us and most especially Grandma. We will miss you mom and we have many fond, loving memories that we shall cherish forever. We shall all play a game of Scrabble and tell a few stories about Grandma.
