Serious single MVA on Hwy 1 at the Sailor Bar Tunnel 15 km north of Yale A serious single vehicle MVA occured on Hwy1 at the Sailor Bar Tunnel 15km north of Yale on Sunday, Feb 7. The southbound vehicle with two occupants went off the road right, smashing head on into a large boulder/rock face. The driver was transported to Fraser Canyon Hospital in Hope with undetermined injuries. The passenger was trapped in the vehicle for over two hours. Hope Volunteer Search and Rescue used their jaws of life and winch line to help free the passenger who was transported with severe injuries via air ambulance to RCH. The RCMP ICARS team conducted an investigation. It appears the driver may have fallen asleep at the wheel as there were no skid marks on the roadway.
Development plans finalized for Old Hope Princeton Way Erin Knutson Hope Standard The master plan for the development of a hotel, restaurant and conference centre on 950 Old Princeton Way is complete. Developer Mike Hatche received the go ahead, or “shovel ready” on a development permit from the District of Hope to begin construction on the new complex. “Right now we're just negotiating the site,” Hatche told The Hope Standard. The plan involves three separate
stages, the first which includes a Best Western Plus (or a national brand hotel,) a conference centre and a restaurant on Lot 1. According to Hatche, Lot 2 will include senior housing that will provide 41 and 43 units for 55 plus tenants with senior surface parking at the rear, separate from the hotel. The hotel itself will have 100 units of suites, complete with a pool, and the convention centre is projected to hold 300 people with the restaurant providing seating for up to 150 people. “It's going to be a flag hotel, a national

The architect overseeing the project will be JKA, with Shelter Modular as the builder and Norm Wallace and associates slated for project management. The commercial lease will be handled by Cushman Wakefield. The completion of the multi-use structure will be good for economic development and its arrival will help boost the local job market. “There's going to be between 200 and 250 jobs created because of this project,” said Hatche.

believes in the integrity of his work. “I want to maintain the beauty of traditional West Coast native art, because it's more than just my work— it's my way of life.” Experiencing Sanford and his shop is like being transported into the mystical and romantic world of legend. There is a spiritual nature about Sanford and his unique creations, that is like transcending the ties of the conventional world and being transported to a place of mysticism, a place where anything is possible. His work is representative of the beauty of nature and is as uplifting and mysterious as the depths of the ocean he carves by in Friendly Cove. Legends like Luna are a point of discussion, as Sanford describes the inspiration behind his intricate carvings and his
tendency toward orcas. Luna was an unusual and legendary orca who migrated to Nootka Sound. His friendly demeanor, and unusual nature caused the locals to believe he was the embodiment of the spirit of a dead chief. The little orca had many names, but Luna was the one that predominantly stuck. Sanford replicates legends like Luna in his work to keep them alive, but also to educate and inspire native and non-native people with the majesty of the old myths, and how they present themselves in the modern world. One of the most striking masks on Sanford's shelf is a healing mask. The mask represents different selves of the individual, and is demonstrative of healing
rituals in his culture. It is one of the more popular masks that he sells. “People are healed by these masks,” said Sanford. “They represent the human journey and the healing process.” Sanford is no stranger to adversity and spoke candidly of his own healing journey. He struggled to manifest his own artistic identity as a master carver, while recovering from a troubling past that included abuses suffered at the hands of residential schools. These demoralizing experiences of sexual, mental, emotional and physical abuse, left scars that took time to heal. As Sanford completed his post secondary education at the Gitanmaax School of Art in Hazelton B.C. he also struggled
with issues of alcoholism and spent some time battling his demons in treatment centres. Through his work, Sanford has been able to express his emotions and the complexity of his inner world, while translating them into the pieces he carves. “My journey in life has been as intricate as my carvings. Friendly Cove is where I was born and raised, and though it sounds like a simple life — living and working in a remote area on a small island, our people still endured eventful lives,” said Sanford. “There is no other craft, or place on earth that has given me the same tools to work with to express all of my emotions and experiences.”

West Coast master carver Sanford Williams at his shop in Hope. Sanford also carves out of Friendly Cove, the place of his birth and home to legends that often appear on his unique carvings.
Sanford Williams is a soft spoken man with gentle eyes and a warm handshake. The Hope Standard had the opportunity to meet up with the master carver in his new shop in Hope, where he was accompanied by his wife Marlana. The newly married pair recently relocated to Hope. Marlana, who is an independent writer and self-published author, is also Sanford's marketing and sales rep. The indie historian saw an article featuring Sanford and knew she had to meet him. The pair met at Friendly Cove (Sanford's place of birth) where Sanford has a shop, and there was an immediate connection. They've been together ever since. The West Coast native creates hand carved totem poles, doors, plaques and murals, bent boxes, (where the dead are traditionally stored for burial) benches, masks, paddles, drumsticks and rattles, talking sticks and canes. Inspired by his native heritage, Sanford often uses animal imagery in his work. Creatures of the sea, myths, legends, folklore and even death masks adorn his shop and are carved using yellow and red cedar, alder, and yew wood. The traditional red and blue hues Sanford uses in his work, mark the significance of his culturally rich history, while maintaining the originality of traditional West Coast native art. “I believe that working the same way my ancestors did is keeping part of our culture alive — when an individual owns one of my pieces, in some ways, they own a piece of history from Friendly Cove,” said Sanford. The humble carver also

Rainforest agreement a win
Published by Black Press Lt. at 540 Wallace St., Hope, B.C. every Thursday.
From years of bitter conflict to a multi-level collaboration to protect one of the most stunningly beautiful places on Earth, the announcement of the Great Bear Rainforest Land Use Order by Premier Christy Clark is, in itself, stunning. The agreement has been some 15 years in the making and spans a region that is 6.4 million hectares (15 million acres) stretching from Discovery Islands north to the Tongass Rainforest of Alaska. Under the terms of the agreement, 85 per cent of the forested area will be completely and permanently protected from industrial logging. The balance of 15 per cent that will be accessible to forest companies will be subject to the most stringent commercial logging legal standards in North America. The region is home to hundreds of species of plants as well as animal species including grizzly bears, the white “spirit” bear (a colour phase of the black bear), wolves, cougars, orcas, and salmon. Twenty-six First Nations have made the region home for thousands of years. With this agreement, it is now among the largest tracts of intact temperate rainforest in the world. And it didn’t come about easily. Remember those “war in the woods” days in the early 1990s? Logging was becoming controversial in the late 1980s. But it soon erupted in a head-on battle as environmentalists tried to protect old growth forest ecosystems where the very trees the forest industry wanted – those of great size, quality, and durability – grew in abundance. In the stakeholder line up was the provincial government that, despite its efforts at strategic land use planning processes, failed to bring groups together. Then there were First Nations and other communities. The tree huggers got smart. Battling the logging companies was one thing but then they took aim at the end user distributors and targeted the likes of Ikea and Home Depot who, not wanting to lose customers opposed to buying products stapled to protesters, agreed to stop buying the controversial wood products. But attitudes changed. Alliances formed. Partnerships grew. Weary of spatting at each other, the groups became more conciliatory and engaged in debate. Reconciliation slowly became the word of the day and shared decision-making became the new order. Scientific studies of the region focused on ecological patterns and levels of risk, aboriginal rights, title, and interests, engagement of local communities and other stakeholders, and protection of heritage values.

Protesters fear peace in forests
After 20 years of representing B.C. coastal First Nations to negotiate what U.S.-directed activists labeled the Tom Fletcher Great Bear Rainforest agreement, a weary Dallas Smith expressed his relief and frustration. At a ceremony to sign the final agreement in Vancouver last week, Smith, president of the Nanwakolas Council of remote Central Coast communities like Bella Bella, joked that he’s finally out of a job. Then he got serious. “My communities still aren’t better places to live yet,” he said. But the land use agreement with the province and forest companies over a vast coastal area up to the Alaska border means the years ahead will be better. He said when he started it was like being caught in a divorce between the B.C. forest industry and international environmental groups. Dutch-based Greenpeace, its California offshoot ForestEthics and others moved on from their Clayoquot Sound battle to the B.C. coast, looking to continue the blockades against logging. “It’s the First Nations of the Coast who stood up and said ‘no, this is how it’s going to work’,” Smith said. How it’s going to work is that logging will continue on 550,000 hectares of coastal forest, with a greater share for

First Nations, and with 85 per cent of the region preserved after a century of logging that began with sailing ships. Aside from a few diehards who are either paid to protest or can’t get past issuing demands, B.C. aboriginal people have grown tired of being used as props in global de-marketing campaigns directed from San Francisco or Amsterdam. The protesters’ tactic of organizing customer boycotts that damage far-away economies might be good for international fundraising, but it’s bad for poor people. Formally begun 10 years ago with $30 million from Ottawa, $30 million from B.C. and $60 million from a group of wealthy U.S. family foundations with a larger anti-development agenda, the land use plan remains under attack. Among the many protest outfits is Pacific Wild, which has specialized in Great Bear Rainforest campaigns and now needs a new enemy. Their credibility was demonstrated recently when pottymouthed U.S. pop star Miley Cyrus decided to speak out against B.C.’s wolf kill. Typical of celebrities, Cyrus had no idea about the struggle to preserve dwindling herds of mountain caribou. She barely knows where B.C. is, a fact made plain when Pacific Wild toured her around the North Coast, far from the Kootenay and South Peace regions where the wolves in question actually roam. Cyrus’s handlers spoon-fed video and statements to urban
media, who were so anxious to exploit her global popularity that they played down the fact she was at the wrong end of the province spouting nonsense. After periodically attacking their own B.C. agreement as inadequate, Greenpeace and ForestEthics have moved on to what they call the “boreal forest,” which we like to call northern Canada. The same bully tactics with forest products customers and producers have been featured. This time, a Quebec company that signed an accord in 2010 is suing Greenpeace for “defamation, malicious falsehood and intentional interference in economic relations.” Aboriginal companies on the B.C. coast will continue to log, including areas of old-growth forest and secondary growth. They will continue to export logs as economics dictate. They will continue to harvest animals, including grizzly bears. And, I expect, they will continue to be subjected to attempts to supervise and direct them by members of urban society’s new religion, environmentalism. The leaders of this movement don’t like peace. It’s bad for their business. Tom Fletcher is B.C. legislature reporter and columnist for Black Press. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org Twitter: @ tomfletcherbc

The Hope Wildcats Atom C hockey squad (green jerseys) travelled to Mission on the holiday weekend to take part in the Mission Atom C Jim Veitch Memorial Tournament. It was a tough event for the locals, as despite some strong team efforts throughout the event, the Hope squad went winless in the tournament.
High mountain road continued Re: Dick Gardner’s letter in the Feb. 4 Hope Standard edition. It was missing a few paragraphs. Here is the letter in its entirety. TV coverage of our Coquihalla has been negative. There is a sign on the highway saying high mountain road conditions can change quickly — I travelled the highway four times over the holiday, and it was always one lane and it was
down to the pavement. I was a tow truck operator 25 years ago on the #3 road, and you must put chains on 100 times. The roads and equipment were awful! Today I talked to my neighbour who is on the #5, five times a week, he said the highway was good 95 per cent of the time. The only problem with the Merritt end is sanding (there's lots.) Sometimes it's put down too early and
it gets blown off. I suggest that the timing could be better. On another topic, build it and they will come. The moose head sign at the Blue Moose Coffee shop is unbelievable, it's meticulous and original. You must go in and see this work of art by Don Wiens. Wes, the owner of the coffee shop has a friendly open door policy, and is of the mindset that you can come in and you don't have to buy a thing, but
he does take cash for wonderful food. PS. Always stay positive. If you are down think of three things that are good at the moment.
Thankful We have recently moved to Hope and would like to thank our excellent Realtor, Dave Radmore and his partner, Andy Tepasse, who was there when Dave could not be to help us find a home. We would also like to thank G. Blue Plumbing (Greg,) Kenlin Electric (Scott) and Barclay Fletcher (Cal) for the renovation work they did for us. They were very professional, helpful and competent.

Local entrepreneur Jinny Jin, owner of Lucky Dollar Plus Store started making soap in 2010 with the dream to create a deliciously scented and all natural soap that would improve the appearance of the skin, while being gentle. “I was so tired of the artificial fragrances and the chemical soap on the market at that time,” she told The Hope Standard. “I also had skin problems myself, and I spent a lot of money trying to fix them, so I decided to make my own chemical free soap. After studying online and attending community classes on soap making, while reading voraciously on the subject, Jinny began
to experiment on her own. “When you first start something, it's a lot of trial and error,” she said. Jinny began to notice the disappearance of her skin problems as she explored new ground and experimented with natural ingredients such as essential oils, organic herbs, flowers and natural base oils. “I started to give some of my soap to family and friends — they loved it so much, they suggested that I make it as a product,” she said. With a little research, Jinny was ready to set start selling her neatly packaged soaps on her own shelves at the dollar store. The cheerful South Korean shop owner does all the packaging herself, including the printing, typing

and wrapping of each individual soap. “I have more than 70 soaps available and I sell almost 50 kinds at the store.” Jinny's soap display is a colourful array of combinations and textures that appeal to almost every taste. Her concoctions include elements like rosemary and lavender, or a rejuvenating coffee exfoliating scrub. The handmade soap lathers richly, and moisturizes as well as cleanses. Ingredients used in her unique and affordable soaps range from olive, coconut and palm oils as well as apricot kernel, avocado, jojoba, hemp and sweet almond essential oils that help to achieve tantalizing aromas, while providing for a wide range of colour in her product.
Shampoo bars are part of the mix and can be used on the body as well. Jinny has recommendations for different skin problems, such as using charcoal soap to combat oily skin, and she also recommends a turmeric (made of ground turmeric powder) blend to calm irritated skin. “I use edible oil in my product, because it is safe and natural,” she said. Making soap for the innovative entrepreneur is a delightful undertaking, and she admits to converting three rooms in her home into a soap making shop. “It doesn't take much time — there is a curing processing time that ranges from four-to-six weeks and then you can package,” she said. “My place is like a soap factory.”

10 Valentine’s Day ideas that won’t break the bank "Can't Buy Me Love" was a great song by Lennon and McCartney and frankly, a pretty good philosophy for Valentine's Day in general. There really are ways to enjoy a unique and memorable February 14 without overspending. Here are 10 ideas to warm their heart and spare your wallet: Begin at the beginning. Maybe your relationship began at work, a party or a bus stop. Returning to that place and re-stage that moment using little props can re-capture memories. Try a little due diligence. Ask your significant other or friend about his or her best Valentine's Day ever. Listen for clues about gifts, activities or places you might try. Don't wait until 48 hours
before the holiday; you can always collect creative Valentine's Day ideas 365 days a year. Stay near the stove. A fabulous dinner almost always costs less at home. Plus, it's a more intimate setting and shows dedication and thought. Deliver kindness, not presents. Instead of wrapped gifts, what about chores or crafts? Focus on a gift based on something you know how to do rather than something you could just buy. If it's a night out, do your homework. Valentine's Day can be one of the most crowded and expensive nights to go out. If you have a restaurant or event in mind, research everything you can about the food, ambiance and specials at various times of day – particularly during early,
fixed-price periods and slower days of the week. Grab those coupons, free passes and points. Mileage, restaurants and online discount clubs can offer a range of options. Points can be used for discounts or free nights out on Valentine's Day or immediate dates. Decide which offers are the best deals and leverage them the best that you can. Consider substitutions and alternatives. Why have that glass of champagne or celebratory cocktail at the restaurant if there's a happy hour nearby where you can save a little money? Consider mixing and matching venues on a night out to save money. Declare a staycation. Visit museums on halfprice days or out-of-the-way eateries you always
thought about trying. Even local hotels might be a better deal than traveling a greater distance. You don't have to run for the roses. A dozen roses are a classic gift. But there are potentially cheaper and equally beautiful flower alternatives. If your loved one has a green thumb, consider potted plants or seeds they can sow later. Remember, spring is right around the corner. If you must bling, bling responsibly. If this Valentine's Day involves a wedding engagement or another grand gesture of romance, plan well in advance so you can get advice on what you're buying and ensure it's in line with your loved one's taste. Maybe a relative with a beautiful ring might offer it or sell it at a friendly price.

Marijuana grower pleads: A 35-year-old Kawkawa Lake woman pleaded guilty to the cultivation of marijuana after police seized 85 plants in her garden. Judith Ann Cross entered the guilty plea in Hope provincial court on a Thursday and was sentenced April 12, 1975 in Chilliwack. RCMP charged Cross after conducting a search of her property and finding the marijuana plants growing behind her house. Community effort catches bank crook Local residents played a part in a police sweep that nabbed a suspect involved in an attempted robbery of the Bank of Montreal in Hope on Feb. 19, 1975. Using a 'fan-out' system,' in which preselected members of the business community were called by phone for information, RCMP Staff Sergeant Ron Nassichuk said police were able to locate a suspect within an hour of the incident. RCMP arrested two suspects near the Hope Hotel, charging one person and releasing the other. According to Nassichuk, a lone male entered the Bank of
Montreal at about 3:45 p.m. And passed up a hold up note to a teller. When the teller walked away from the counter, the suspect fled without any money. The teller immediately called the police, who in turn provided a description of the suspect to businesses dealing with the public, such as taxi companies. RCMP charged a 27 year-old Burnaby man with attempted robbery. The perpetrator first arrived in court on Thursday and at that time the bail was set to $5000. Crash injures driver A Vancouver Island trucker was taken to Fraser Canyon Hospital after a single-vehicle accident 32 kilometres east of Hope on Highway 3 on a Friday. Douglas Carl Lamb was later transferred to a New Westminster hospital for treatment of chest injuries. RCMP Sergeant Larry Rein said the driver appeared to have been going too fast around a corner, causing him to lose control of his vehicle. The truck received an estimated 40,000 damage when it rolled onto its side. Hope Search and Rescue was called out to the accident, but the driver was already free from his vehicle before members could assist.

Community Eating disorder awareness videos a province-wide initiative It's National Eating Disorders Week and as part of a provincial plan to better inform British Columbian families and health care providers about this deadly disorder, a series of informational videos are being released across the province. The seven videos feature experts from the Provincial Specialized Eating Disorders Program, located at BC Children's Hospital in Vancouver, giving presentations about the medical assessment and management, various therapies, meal support and more. Included in the seven videos is one about the family experience, which features Rylee McKinlay, 20, and her mother Terri McKinlay. When Rylee was 16 she was hospitalized for nine weeks at BC Children's for her anorexia. At her sickest, her heart rate was so low she was at risk of dying of heart failure. Eating disorders (ED) affect 1.5 per cent of young women age 15 to 24 in B.C. In recent years, rates of EDs have been increasing in men, too. EDs are the deadliest of all mental health concerns, with up to 15 per cent of those with the diagnosis eventually dying directly from the disorder. The videos were filmed last year in Kimberley B.C, when six experts from the provincial program travelled to the region to present a day long-workshop. Now the edited videos are being released provincewide to help spread the knowledge more widely to other regions that may struggle with how to provide up-to-date and effec-
tive treatment in B.C.'s more rural and remote locations. “We are thrilled to be able to make these videos available. It is important to us to share the knowledge and expertise of our specialized staff with families and health care providers across all of B.C., particularly in communities that may not have easy access to this information," said Sarah Bell, Provincial Executive Director, Mental Health and Concurrent Disorders Services at BC Children's Hospital. " The videos are a project of the East Kootenay Local Action Team, which is part of the province-wide Child and Youth Mental Health and Substance Use Collaborative. The Collaborative is a province-wide initiative that aims to improve the awareness, coordination, and timely access of child and youth mental health services. The Collaborative brings together a wide array of people into Local Actions Teams designed to find collective community solutions to specific mental health issues. There are now 65 local action teams all across B.C. The funding for the Collaborative comes primarily from the Shared Care Committee, a joint committee of the Doctors of BC and the BC Government. Funding for the whole initiative has also come from two other joint Doctors of BC/BC government committees. The videos can be found at the Shared Care website, http://sharedcarebc. ca/initiatives/CYMHSUResources
Nominations sought for Urquhart award The University of the Fraser Valley is once again looking for unsung heroes. Do you know an individual or a group who has made the Fraser Valley a better place to live? People who make everyday contributions to their community but who may not be recognized? Consider nominating them for the UFV Betty Urquhart Community Service award. Betty Urquhart was one of the first employees of the university and believed strongly in volunteering and giving back to the community. While Betty passed away in 1995, UFV keeps her memory alive by honouring a person or group exemplifying her commitment to lifelong learning and community. One of the recent past winners was Patricia Murakami of Hope for her community work and commitment to Tillicum. Recognizing community volunteers provides inspiration for UFV students to contribute and give back to their community. This award is part of UFV’s continuing commitment to changing lives and building community. The deadline for this year’s nominations is Friday, March 11. If you’d like to nominate someone for the Betty Urquhart community service award, contact Lori Ann Waites at 1-888-504-7441 (local 2614) or at firstname.lastname@example.org
DEVELOPMENT OF A PEST MANAGEMENT PLAN Pest Management Plan: BC Hydro Facilities 2016-2021
The use of pesticides is intended within the area to which the Pest Management Plan (PMP) applies. The purpose of the proposed PMP is to control vegetation at BC Hydro facilities to maintain safe and reliable operations which support the delivery of electricity to our customers. This plan applies to all areas of British Columbia where BC Hydro has operational or planned facilities such as electrical substations, generation switchyards, generating sites, communication sites, storage sites, administrative buildings, or land owned or leased for future facilities. The proposed duration of the PMP is from April 2016 to April 2021. Vegetation incompatible with the operation of the power system will be controlled using: physical (manual brushing, girdling, hand-pulling, hedge trimming, mowing, pruning, weed trimming or tree removal), cultural (gravel/hard surfacing, planting ground cover), biological (release of parasitic insects to control noxious and invasive plants) or chemical (herbicide application) techniques, or any combination of these methods. The active ingredients and trade names of the herbicides proposed for use under this plan include: ○ acetic acid – Ecoclear, Munger’s Hort Vinegar or equivalent, ○ aminocyclopyrachlor and chlorsulfuron – Truvist or equivalent ○ aminocyclopyrachlor and metsulfuron-methyl – Navius or equivalent ○ aminopyralid – Milestone or equivalent ○ aminopyralid and metsulfuron-methyl – ClearView or equivalent ○ aminopyralid, metsulfuron-methyl, and ﬂuroxypyr – Sightline or equivalent ○ aminopyralid, metsulfuron-methyl and triclopyr – Clearview Brush or equivalent ○ Chlorsulfuron – Telar or equivalent ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○ ○
Chondrostereum purpureum – Chontrol or equivalent clopyralid – Lontrel, Transline or equivalent or equivalent dicamba – Vanquish, Banvel or equivalent dichlorprop-P and 2,4-D – Estaprop XT or equivalent diﬂufenzopyr and dicamba – Distinct, Overdrive or equivalent diuron – Karmex, Diurex 80 WDG or equivalent ﬂumioxazin – Payload or equivalent glyphosate – Vantage, Vision or equivalent imazapyr – Arsenal Powerline or equivalent indaziﬂam – Esplanade or equivalent metsulfuron-methyl – Escort or equivalent picloram – Tordon 22k, Tordon 101 or equivalent picloram and 2,4-D – Aspect or equivalent triclopyr – Garlon products or equivalent Triﬂuralin – BioBarriere, Treﬂan or equivalent 2,4-D – LV700 or equivalent
Adjuvant products may also be combined on occasion with a herbicide to improve its eﬀectiveness, such as: nonylphenoxy polyethoxy ethanol – Agral 90, paraﬃnic oils – Gateway, octadec-9-enoic acid as methyl and ethyl esters – Hasten NT, or siloxylated polyether – Xiameter or equivalents. The proposed methods for applying herbicides include: soil applied techniques (backpack sprayer, powerhose or ﬁxed boom sprayer), cut surface, basal bark, backpack foliar, mechanized foliar (ﬁxed nozzle, boom directed nozzle, wick sprayer), and injection (hack and squirt, lance or syringe) techniques. A draft copy of the proposed PMP is available at bchydro.com/pestplanforfacilities. Alternatively, it is available in person at 6911 Southpoint Drive, Burnaby; 1401 Kalamalka Lake Road, Vernon; 18475 128 Street, Surrey; 400 Madsen Road, Nanaimo; 3333 22 Avenue, Prince George. BC Hydro, the applicant for the proposed PMP, is located at 6911 Southpoint Drive, Burnaby, B.C., V3N 4X8. Please contact Tom Wells, Vegetation Program Manager, at 604 516 8943 or email@example.com for more information. A person wishing to contribute information about a proposed treatment site, relevant to the development of the pest management plan, may send copies of the information to the applicant at the above address within 30 days of the publication notice.

Fourteen Hope youths joined close to 350 others at the 42nd annual ROVENT winter campout, at Cambie Creek in Manning Park for a fun-filled long weekend. The Hope group dug a fire pit complete with benches that had been carefully molded by the snow.
Snow filled adventure at Cambie Creek for Hope youths Hope Standard With well over a metre of snow, you’d think they could find a place to use their snowshoes — but no, there were so many other fun activities at last weekend’s winter campout, the 14 members of the First Hope Venturer Company put the snowshoes on hold, in the cold. “During the day, it was around 0º Celsius,” said company commissioner Crystal Medlock, Monday. “But by Saturday night, it was minus 15, with clear skies and stars. It was beautiful!” Some 350 young people from Vancouver Island, the Lower Mainland and the BC interior gathered at the Cambie Creek day use area for the forty-second annual ROVENT winter campout. The site is about 7 km west of the Manning Park lodge. Venturers are the next step up from Scouts, spanning ages 14 to 17. Rovers are aged 18 to 26 and the two groups get together for big gatherings several times a year, with Rovers acting as activity leaders. Parent
advisors, including Shannon Fischer and Yvonne Hambly, came along as chaperones. Most of the Hope contingent had left school at last block on Friday, to get the camp set up before dark, said Medlock. It was good that they did. Her husband Scott went with the first crew and Crystal drove up later in white-out conditions. “Emil Anderson had plowed out the parking lot for us,” said Crystal. This provided a large area for a street hockey tournament and a large dance floor for the Saturday and Sunday night dances. “They had a cube van with the lights and sound system and the kids danced till midnight.” With no internet access, it was down to old-school fun and socializing — something the Hope kids are noted for, said Medlock. Other groups had gas heaters but the Hope group brought firewood and a steel fire pit. “They dug down five feet to the dirt,” said Medlock, “and they molded benches in the snow. Sometimes the fire got too hot, so they sat around the top edge. Other kids would come around to socialize. We
had met a lot of them at a jamboree on the Island, or at the Rain Bucket campout. “They randomly broke out into songs. It was a lot of fun.” At the Rain Bucket event in November, the Hope campers were introduced to food-eating competitions. Ben Tuivai outmunched all others in the Spam-themed event. This time, Tuivai rested his digestive system, though Sequel Adamson gave it a try, bowing out in the first round. Other Hope members took part in the cook-off challenge. “Each team got half a head of purple cabbage, a bag of hard cheezies and a big sweet potato,” explained Medlock. “You had one hour and you were allowed to use any other food you already had.” Like their fire pit, Hope’s cooking area was dug down into the snow, with a pop-up canopy to keep the wind down. “The kids took a spicy kimchi noodle bowl and threw it in with stir-fried cabbage and carrots,” said Medlock. “They mashed the sweet potato and rolled a piece of firewood on the cheezie bag to crush them, then

they mixed the cheezies in the sweet potato and sprinkled grated cheese on top. “The judges had to taste it — and the Hope kids didn’t win — but they ate all the leftovers. Next year, they’ll be ready for it. Hope also put a team in the talent show, lip-synching to Adele’s recent hit “Hello.” They tried but they ended up on the outside of the awards. With tugs-of-war, speed snowman making, street hockey, foam sword “boffing,” random snowballing and hours of sledding, the Venturers had plenty of chances to get their clothes wet. Medlock’s tent had a woodstove and chimney, so it doubled as a drying shed. “The kids slept in three-man tents and anyone who didn’t have a good sleeping bag one inside another, with blankets as well,” said Medlock. “They were pretty warm. These kids have been winter camping for four or five years now, so they’re used to it. “We’re probably going to bring the Scouts up there in spring break, when it’s a little warmer.”

With heavy hearts we must say good bye to our mom, Dee Morrow, who passed away peacefully on Saturday January 30th in her 90th year. She was predeceased by her husband Roy and son Greg, brothers: Walt, Art and Don, sisters: Marg and Eileen. Dee is survived by her children: Beverley (Peter), Ken (Darlene), Ron (Jodie), grandchildren: Jason, Justin (Dezerae), Nicole (Ryan), Kalvin (Nao), Cole, Emily, and great grandchildren: Camryn, Madyson and Hana. Dee was born March 13, 1926 in Edmonton, Alberta. Her family moved to Vancouver where she attended Sir Richard McBride Public School, and John Oliver High School. After graduating from high school, Dee worked in Vancouver at the Woodwards Department Store. Dee met Roy in 1947 and got married in 1949. They moved to Hope in 1949 where they enjoyed 63 years of marriage. In the early years in Hope, Dee worked for Dysons Mens Wear. Later Dee purchased and operated Hope Style Shop. Dee served on the Fraser Canyon Hospital Board of Trustees when the Hospital officially opened on Jan. 10, 1959. She enjoyed the fellowship and was active until recently with the Anglican Church woman’s group and loved socializing with her wonderful friends. Dee will be greatly missed by her family and friends. The family wishes to thank Linda Yearwood, Dr. Greggain, dear caring friend Lori Schofield, and the caring staff at Riverside Manor, Cheam Village, and the Fraser Canyon Hospital. A Celebration of life will be held in April at the Christ Church in Hope. Date to be announced. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of your choice if so desired.

A guide to information & services for Hope & area adults
EXERCISING AFTER 55 Exercise is an essential element of a healthy lifestyle. But as beneficial as exercise can be, many men and women, over the age of 55, who have not laced up their sneakers in years are hesitant to begin an exercise regimen for a variety of reasons. Regardless of age, beginning a new exercise regimen can be intimidating. Especially so for men and women over the age of 55, who might not know where to begin or how to approach adopting a healthier lifestyle. According to the National Institute on Aging, the following are a few key points men and women should know as they attempt to improve their physical fitness with a more active lifestyle.
Exercise is safe even if you have not been physically active in a long time. Many older men and women worry that suddenly embracing physical fitness after years of inactivity may be detrimental to their health. But that’s only true if men and women don’t use caution at the outset of their routines. When beginning the routine, take things very slowly at first, choosing to walk or bike every day rather than hitting the treadmill and adjusting it to maximum resistance. When strength training, start off with very little weight so your muscles grow acclimated to the motions and you can get the exercises down pat. As you grow more comfortable and your body starts to feel more up to the challenges of daily exercise, you can begin to gradually alter your cardiovascular and strength training workouts to make them more challenging. Exercise can make existing medical conditions more manageable. Men and women over the age of 55 who
have preexisting medical conditions are likely to find that exercise alleviates rather than exacerbates their physical problems. The NIA notes that studies have shown that regular exercise and physical activity can benefit people with arthritis, high blood pressure and heart disease. But it’s still recommended that men and women with preexisting medical conditions consult with their physicians before making any lifestyle changes. Exercise reduces fatigue, so sitting around to preserve strength is not effective. Exercise improves strength and energy levels, so sitting on the sideline to preserve your strength is counterproductive.

Many people now look at retirement as the end of one career and the beginning of another. As retirement draws closer, men and women might want to consider turning an interest or a passion into a second career. Such a move might make retirement more exciting while removing some of the fear of finding enough things to pass the time that many people have with regard to retirement.
Medical costs As you get closer to retirement make sure you understand your medical requirements and the medical coverage you have.
Just because you’re no longer working doesn’t mean you won’t have income. Benefits, retirement accounts and perhaps even some light consulting work are just a few ways retirees may earn an income. Though your retirement income will likely pale in comparison to your income as an adult working full-time, estimate what that income will be so you can get at least an idea of how much will be coming in each month.

and possibly even a mortgage payment will still need to be made. Once you have an idea of your projected income and your expenses during retirement, you can get to work on a prospective budget to show you what you will need to live on in retirement.
Once you have an idea of what’s coming in, estimate how much will be going out each month. Certain costs associated with working, such as the cost of commuting and maintaining a work wardrobe, can be removed from the ledger. But other expenses, including utilities, car payments

embrace life TIPS FOR RETIREES TRAVELING ABROAD Men and women often dream of jetsetting around the world when they retire. Traveling the globe without worrying about timelines or what’s going on back at the office is something many retirees reward themselves with after a life of hard work. As liberating as world travel can be, retirees still must exercise caution when traveling abroad. The following are a few safety tips for retirees who are ready to make their dream retirements a reality by setting off for parts unknown. Stay in touch. Escapism is a big part of the attraction of travel for travellers young and old. But while you may want to avoid contact with the outside world on your travels, it’s still necessary to stay in touch with your loved ones. Retirees who plan to take extended trips overseas should purchase an international mobile phone plan that allows them to use their phones regardless of what country they happen to be in. A quick text message to a son or a daughter back home is all it takes to let your family know how you are safe and having the time of your life. Work out a communication plan with your loved ones back home before departing, agreeing to contact them via phone call, email, or Skype at least once per week for the duration of your trip. This is a good way to share your experiences and help your relatives rest easy knowing that you are safe.
Don’t store all your important documents in one place. When traveling overseas, it can be convenient to keep important items like traveler’s cheques, credit cards, passports, and identification in one place. However, storing all your sensitive documents or financial items in one place is very risky, as a lost or stolen bag can leave you without identification or access to your funds. When travelling, couples should carry their own passports on their persons and split up credit cards and traveler’s cheques. This way you still have access to your funds, and one of you still has identification should items be lost or stolen.
you at all times, so local medical professionals can contact him or her should you experience a medical emergency. Once you have arrived at your destination, it’s important that you continue to prioritize your health. Make sure the water is safe to drink before taking a sip and investigate local cuisine to ensure it won’t enflame any existing medical conditions you may have. The quality of medical care varies greatly across the globe, so you must prioritize your health whenever you are leaving the country and avoid anything that might put your health in jeopardy
Do your homework. Unplanned day trips are common among travellers who have been travelling for long periods of time. While such jaunts can add an element of spontaneity to a trip, they can also be quite dangerous if travellers have not done their homework on a particular destination. You do not want to end up in a place where tourists are not welcome or frequent targets of criminals. In addition, you don’t want to visit a city or town and know nothing of its customs or etiquette. For example, locals may react negatively to visitors who have ignored accepted standards for attire. You can still make spontaneous trips, but make sure you gather some background information, be it from the Internet, locals where you are currently staying or the hotel concierge, on a given locale and its customs before visiting.
Make sure your health will not be compromised. Retirees cannot travel in the same manner they did in the carefree days of their youth. Before traveling abroad, visit your physician and get a full physical. Refill any medications you will need during your trip and speak to your physician about how to handle any medical emergencies, while overseas. Carry your physician’s name and telephone number with
