Once completed patients will have a “single process” for registering in the hospital and in emergency even after hours, says Catherine Wiebe, the hospital’s site director. Currently after-hours admissions are taken at the emergency desk with patients entering from the ambulance ramp. Patients, friends and family could then be directed to a small waiting room adjacent to the open acute care ward – a situation that caused concern for the safety of both patients and hospital staff.

By exchanging the current medical records department, housed at the main entrance of the hospital, for a new waiting room safety is expected to improve. “The currently location of the wait room isn’t secure, When visitors to the hospital are in the wait room they are not visible to staff and they have access to the stairwell and other departments, adds Wiebe. “The new wait room is contained and makes the hospital secure after hours,” says Wiebe.

In a push to be more environmentally friendly, last year, the hospital’s aged boilers were replaced.

News Save $2 million by quitting the FVRD, says Abbotsford chamber By Neil Corbett Black Press

Abbotsford should get out of the Fraser Valley Regional District (FVRD), and save almost $2 million per year. That’s the position of the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce, which decided at a Tuesday night meeting to lobby the city to withdraw. Chamber executive director David D. Hull said he expects the city to look favourably on the recommendation, and “we’ll march arm-in-arm to Victoria,” where the provincial government would be asked to approve the move. The chamber’s government affairs committee produced an eight-page report, concluding that Abbotsford, Chilliwack and Mission are contributing an inordinate amount for services to people living in rural areas in the far-flung district, which covers almost 14,000 square kilometres. From the

U.S. border, it stretches northward almost to Whistler in its western reaches, taking in all of Harrison Lake, and past the Nahatlatch River in the east. “The City of A b b o t s f o r d contributed a few dollars short of two and half million dollars to the FVRD,” said chamber president Patricia Sapielak in a press release. “It appears that the only real value or service the city receives is E911 and fire dispatch worth a little over half a million dollars. We think there is up to two million dollars the city could save annually.” Hull said Abbotsford has contributed $1.1 million toward FVRD general government and administration, another $203,000 for air quality management, and $273,000 for regional development services. He said all of these budget items would appear to be of dubious value to Abbotsford taxpayers. Meanwhile, they

are paying a greater share of the taxation for the region, based on higher property assessments in Abbotsford compared to places like Yale and Boston Bar. Lowering property taxes for Abbotsford businesses was the chamber’s motivation to look at the issue.

Regional districts are a governance model that may have made sense in the 1960s, but a new funding model must be found for services in rural communities, Hull asserted, and it should not add to property taxes in urban areas. Abbotsford Coun. Patricia Ross is also the FVRD chair. While she appreciates the chamber reviewing the cost of local government, she said

the regional district would like to discuss the issue. “There are a lot of implications. It’s always more complicated than it seems at first blush,” said Ross. In a statement of response, she said: “While we respect their perspective, we do not necessarily agree with their conclusions. “The Regional District has, and continues to, work on

Proposed hotel complex wins parking and height variances property cleaned up. The proposed hotel, convention centre and restaurant complex is slated land next to the Tim Horton’s on Old Hope-Princeton Way. Hache told council that he and his partners would like the hotel to be open for business by March or April of 2012. The initial proposal was

for a 110 room hotel, which had been previously cut to 80 rooms. At Monday’s meeting, council approved a variance to allow the contractor to provide 138 parking stalls down from 159 in the original plans. Council also approved a height variance for the project. Also off the books is a

clock tower that had been designed into the architecture of the main building. Concerns over the design were raised by the Ministry of Highways as it could become a distraction for drivers traveling along a dark section of the Coquihalla Highway, The highway runs behind the planned facility at a higher grade.

Ratepayers see hike in garbage bills despite savings with new contractor Homeowners opened their mailboxes to discover their annual water, garbage and sewer bill had jumped again this year – despite reported savings with the new garbage contractor. Homeowners now pay $198.96 for water, $146.52 for sewer, and $248 per year for garbage, green and recycling pick-up – a jump of $20 in total. With the new contractor, First Class Waste Disposal, saving the district an estimated $1.2 million over the next five years many

taxpayers were surprised to see a jump in their garbage rate of $7. “I can understand there being questions,” said Mayor Laurie French, after Monday’s council meeting. But utility bills are generated by a current bylaw and with the new contractor just taking over in January there has been no chance for council to change the bylaw or review the rates, added French. “We just don’t have enough information yet,” said French.

“It is all going to come down to the finance department and our budget discussions,” said French. Budget meetings between staff and council are expected to start in the next three weeks, with the completed budget, also known as the five-year financial plan, to be passed by council by mid-May. Although ratepayers should not expect a break in their water, sewer and garbage rates this year with utility bills already in their mailboxes, next year

the savings with the new contract may soften the blow of any increases already set out in the bylaw. On the other hand, the savings may never be passed onto the ratepayer directly, as the district continues to balance the operational budget for the Hope landfill. “Currently we have been subsidizing our dump closure costs out of general revenue,” notes French. No other information was provided by the District of Hope finance department as of presstime.

Falcon, Abbott add more MLA support By Tom Fletcher Black Press

S u r re y - C l o v e rd a l e MLA Kevin Falcon has added two more high-profile endorsements to his campaign for the B.C. Liberal leadership, as Prince George-area cabinet ministers Shirley Bond and Pat Bell pledged their support. Shuswap MLA George Abbott added his 17th endorsement from sitting MLAs Monday, as West Vancouver -Capilano MLA Ralph Sultan joined his team. Falcon’s total stands at 15 current MLAs. At his announcement in Prince George Monday, Falcon emphasized the significance of Bell, minister of forests, lands and mines, and Bond, minister of transportation. Falcon said he’s grateful for their support, “and the organization they bring to the table, because I can tell you they are highly respected and supported, not just in the north but in virtually every part of rural British Columbia.� Bond noted that

Two B.C. Liberal leadership candidates have called for changes to province-wide testing for elementary school children, after the head of the B.C. Principals’ and Vice Principals’ Association joined the B.C. Teachers’ Federation in rejecting the current test program. Foundation Skills Assessment (FSA) tests are currently being administered across the province to grade four and seven students, to measure reading, writing and number skills. The BCTF has fought against the tests for years, with teachers refusing to mark them and lobbying parents to exclude their children. Shuswap MLA George Abbott, who was briefly education minister before running to succeed Premier Gordon Campbell, said skills assessment tests are important. He suggested

This results in students either not taking the tests, or not trying as hard as they should. Aziz also objected to the use of FSA test results by the Fraser Institute to rank schools, which he called a “misuse� of the data.

News B.C. Liberals woo coastal loggers Black Press

VICTORIA – B.C. Liberal leadership candidates made their pitches to coastal loggers at their annual convention this week, vowing to continue the B.C. government’s efforts to develop Asian export markets and homegrown demand for wood. Candidates George Abbott, Mike de Jong and Ed Mayne took part in a resource forum Wednesday evening, where they were quizzed on issues important to independent contractors who belong to the Truck Loggers’ Association. Their businesses benefit from input credits under the harmonized sales tax, and all three candidates said the tax has a chance to survive a referendum. Abbott insisted the HST might win a majority of votes even if the referendum date is moved up to late June as he has advocated. He questions how much attention people would pay to the issue during the summer.

Mayne said he “wholeheartedly” supports the HST, and the province-wide vote should be held on the scheduled date of Sept. 24, to give the government the maximum time to convince people of its merits. De Jong agreed that the defeat of the HST isn’t inevitable, but added “let’s not kid ourselves” about the chances a majority of taxpayers will vote to keep it. Business leaders have argued they need the time to demonstrate that lower taxes will translate into lower prices, increased investment and job creation. All the candidates praised Forests Minister Pat Bell for his efforts to develop export markets for wood products in China. De Jong said India might be “the next China” for B.C. lumber producers. Abbott offered the most detailed policy recommendations. He called for the restoration of $4 million cut last year from the $22 million budget for B.C.’s

RCMP have charged a man in connection with the murder of 64-year-old Robert-Jan Planje. Steven Kenneth Frederickson of Chilliwack was arrested Tuesday and charged with second degree murder. Planje had been missing since the morning of Dec. 13, 2010 when the Chilliwack RCMP were called to his home in the Rainbow Trailer park to check on his well being. When police attended they

found no one at the residence, however there were signs of “a suspicious activity.” The residence was secured and a search for Planje began. Planje was last seen alive the on Dec. 12, 2010. Later in the day on Dec. 13 police recovered items thought to be linked to the Planje home on Ballam Road. Ballam Road is a remote rural roadway that runs adjacent to an arm of the Fraser River in north Chilliwack. Police conducted an extensive search in the area along Ballam Road as well as RCMP Dive Team members were deployed into the river. The search did not locate Planje. According to RCMP Cpl. Dale Carr of IHIT, “Investigators still asking the public to recall if they saw any out of the ordinary activity along Ballam Road on Dec. 13, 2010 between 4 a.m. and 10 a.m.. As this is an area that something unusual would stand out.”

PHOTO CORNER Taking pictures by candlelight is a very romantic set up for Valentine’s Day. It is also very challenging but well worth the effort. The Valentine’s Day kit will include a person, digital camera, tripod and some candles. If you are using a compact digital you may need more than a few candles to generate enough light. Once your camera is on the tripod turn off the flash, set the camera to manual operation, then set the aperture to the wide open. At this point you can take a test shot. If it is too dark set the shutter speed for a longer exposure, try half a second. When using long exposures your subject will have to be very still to avoid image blur. You can choose to have the candles in frame to one side or both or you can have the candles off camera. Whichever you choose, the effect is well worth the setting up. Happy Valentine’s Day.

On Dec. 30 at approximately 8:30 a.m., Upper Fraser Valley Regional Detachment RCMP members in Hope responded to a report of a found body on a forest service road near American Creek in Hope. The body had been discovered by a local resident that was on the service road walking his dog. After the completion of an autopsy, the body was identified a Planje and he was determined to have been murdered. Planje was not known to police. Planje and Frederickson were known to each other. Planje had taken Frederickson in on a temporary basis as he knew him through Frederickson’s mother. Although this investigation is currently before the courts police are still interested in obtaining any additional information people may have about either Planje or Frederickson.

Opinion

Share the gift When Marshall McLuhan first identified in the 1960s the possibility of a post-literate society in which a visual, individualistic print culture would be usurped by the aural and oral culture of electronic media, the Internet, high definition television and XBox weren’t even a gleam in futurists’ eyes. Now, some observers say that possibility is a reality. Kids spend countless hours honing their reflexes on video games. Watching HDTV is almost as good as being there. And we all spend way too much time surfing the web. Meantime, newspapers and magazines are struggling for readers. Books gather dust on shelves. But even this so-called post-literate society requires a great deal of literacy. There are labels, instructions and guides to be read. And all those little symbols on your computer screen? They’re called words. Even websites like YouTube are choc-a-bloc with them. Not to mention email and text messages. That’s why Thursday’s Family

Literacy Day is so important. If anything, our wired-up, plugged-in multimedia post-literate world has made literacy essential. Yet according to Statistics Canada approximately nine million Canadian adults struggle with poor literacy skills. Imagine being unable to read the instructions on the screen at the bank machine or gas pump. Imagine not understanding what’s printed on a cereal box, bottle of medicine, DVD case, shop sign or restaurant menu. In fact, we do so much reading in our daily lives, it’s easy to take literacy for granted. But none of us were born literate. We had to work at it. Ideally, we started that work early, when it seemed more like play, or sharing quality time with parents or siblings as they read stories to us, maybe even taught us some of the words so we could read along. Literacy is a gift that needs to be shared. Be sure to pass it on.

VICTORIA – As the minutes ticked down to last week’s deadline for NDP leadership candidates to sell memberships, the Adrian Dix campaign brought in stacks of memberships and bags of money, which was then divvied up and attached to memberships. Rival candidates Harry Lali and Mike Farnworth cried foul, but the party brass quickly decided the strict rules they imposed were just guidelines, and they’ll accept the memberships. So Dix is now the front-runner, assuming these thousands of suddenly inspired Tom members from Fletcher Vancouver’s South Asian and Filipino communities translate into votes for him on April 17. As stinky as all this is, it’s not the NDP’s biggest problem. Dix’s remarks in launching his campaign point to another one. He chose a theme of wealth redistribution. “Analysis from all over the developed world demonstrates that the polarization of wealth and power, and the growth of poverty, have very significant financial and social costs imposed on our children and our communities by the growing divide in our society,” he said. Dix didn’t indicate how he intends to correct this “morally wrong” situation where some people have lots of money and others don’t. But another political controversy

NDP’s problems go much deeper in Vancouver offers a clue. B.C. Liberal MLA Kash Heed is being investigated by the RCMP over campaign leaflets distributed to the Chinese community in VancouverFraserview in 2009. The problem wasn’t the content, but rather the anonymous nature of the brochures and the way they were paid for. One leaflet claimed the NDP supports a “death tax” on inheritance. This would be one way to realize Dix’s dream of government-imposed financial equality, although it’s not one espoused recently by candidates. But if you look up the B.C. NDP constitution, you’ll find it starts by declaring loyalty to “democratic socialist principles,” which are defined as follows: “a) the production and distribution of goods and services shall be directed to meeting the social and individual needs of people and not for profit, b) the modification and control of the operations of monopolistic productive and distributive organizations through economic and social planning towards these ends, and c) where necessary, the extension of the principle of social ownership.” Now this is watered down from the old NDP philosophy, which talked specifically about nationalizing banks and major industries. But there remains a definite whiff of Cuba and Venezuela, where the state seized the means of production from private owners and ran it into the ground. Dix and leadership rival John Horgan both worked for the NDP governments of the 1990s. Horgan

describes what he calls a “capital strike” that hit B.C. after the NDP was elected. His terminology hints at a conspiracy of capitalists to pull investment from B.C., to punish the NDP. To Horgan I would reply that this is an understandable reaction by investors to a party that remains explicitly opposed to profit. To Dix, I would say I look forward to details of this analysis of the terrible effects of income inequality in the developed world. My understanding is that if it weren’t for private capital, competition and rewards for efficiency and innovation, there wouldn’t be much of a developed world to analyze. The root of the recent turmoil in the NDP has been described as a lack of policies. That’s not accurate. Judging by the party’s foundation document, the problem is policies so discredited they can’t mention them. Actually there is a modern policy that equalizes wealth by supporting the poor and placing more of the burden on those most able to pay, while encouraging investment. It’s called the harmonized sales tax. Tom Fletcher is legislative reporter and columnist for Black Press and BCLocalnews.com. tfletcher@blackpress.ca

Editor, Black Press Re: Hydro smart meters coming this year (online editions, Jan. 18). I can’t wait! Being in a new house in Kelowna I already have a smart meter installed and I’d really like to take advantage of time-of-use pricing now. I’ve recently moved from Ontario where I was already paying for electricity at time-of-use rates. Now I have electric heat and feel I could even better manage my consumption to avoid peak load times and thus save myself some direct costs. I do hope, however, that time-of-use rates are set in such a way as to truly offset peak load costs and help make the whole system more efficient, thus keeping overall rates lower in

the long term. There has to be a clear advantage to using off-peak power. Bending to the demands of large consumers who traditionally do make use of a lot of peak-load power, as Ontario seems to have done so far, won’t have the right effect, either long-term for everyone, or for smart consumers (big and small) who hope to immediately take full advantage of the potential savings. The potential savings in Ontario, so far, have been relatively small and don’t seem to have convinced as many users to shift away from peak load times. Greg A. Wood Kelowna

Let’s not try to rewrite what’s already written By Margaret Evans Black Press

Last week the Canadian Broadcast Standards Council inflamed music lovers across Canada with its decision that the song Money for Nothing by British rock band Dire Straits (from their 1985 album Brothers in Arms) contravened the Human Rights Clauses of the Canadian Association of Broadcasters’ (CAB) Code of Ethics and Equitable Portrayal Code. Apparently, a year ago, one listener heard the original version of the mega hit song on St. John’s, Newfoundland’s radio CHOZ-FM. That unedited version contains three mentions of the word ‘faggot’ and the listener complained that it was discriminatory toward gay people. Based on that one person’s complaint, the CBSC deemed the song unacceptable for broadcast and that the radio station was in violation of the codes of ethics.

Who are these socially correct commandoes? Who are these socially correct commandoes? Whether or not you like Dire Straits or the song in question, the points of reference here are a) does the complaint of only one person justify the ban of a song for 34 million Canadians and b) why, when this huge 1985 hit has been played countless thousands of times on public airwaves in the past 26 years, is it an issue now? Money for Nothing was Billboard’s No. 1 single from September 21 to October 5, 1985 and won the 1986 Grammy for Record of the Year and the 1986 American Music Award for Record of the Year. The irony of this whole thing, so the story goes, is that when songwriter Mark Knopfler wrote the offensive word into the song he did so to make a point against the people who used the word seriously. In fact, the whole song is loaded with the irony of rock singers earning big money for doing

next to nothing while the average Joe drudges through a 9-5 day job. It was never written as an anti-gay song. It’s the opposite, mocking those who use a gay slur. OK, so they can edit the word out. But why? There is fundamental danger in editing text, whether lyrics or literature, to fit the comfort zone of today’s sensitivities. The act of editing sanitizes history. It discards the proof of the context in which it was written. It’s no different from the decision by NewSouth Books in Alabama to publish its upcoming edition of Mark Twain’s classic ‘Adventures of Huckleberry Finn’, by replacing the word ‘nigger’ with ‘slave’. The whole point of keeping these words in the language as written is that they honestly depict the values and beliefs of the past. A 21st century take on the story removes it from being true to the period. Huck Fin, in its original form, is No. 14 in the top 50 banned books of the decade, according to the American Library Association. How shortsighted is that? Twain’s book eerily parallels Knopfler’s lyrics in that they are both misunderstood in the context of the prejudiced attitudes they are criticising. The word ‘faggot’, derived from Old French and Latin, actually means ‘bundle of sticks’ and has been used since the 16th century. In the 19th century faggot-gatherers, usually elderly widows, gathered firewood for a meagre income. At some time, the word degenerated into a general insult and crossed a line when its historical gender link became a slur against gays. Since the CBSC ban, rock stations across the country have been flaunting Money for Nothing. A Halifax station had a mini-marathon, playing the unedited version on repeat for an hour. It’s wrong that just one person can create all this brouhaha over a hugely successful rock classic. There are many contemporary songs with equally inflammatory words. Are they slated for the ban list on the grunt of just one listener? Scary thought.

Right decision was made in calling for a Snow Day Editor: The Standard As a parent and an employee of SD 78 Fraser Cascade, I was thankful when the decision was made to close the schools. Many people may not realize how big our district actually is and how many of us commute daily to get to our jobs. We have schools located in four different communities, Boston Bar, Hope, Agassiz and Harrison Hot Springs. All requiring many staff to run a school. When I got up at 6:00 am and looked out my front window, I was shocked to see just how much snow had fallen. So my first instinct is turn on the radio and check

the school closures, second was a call to my administrator to say: “Hey I am going to be late cause I will need to shovel my way out.” Then the thought came to mind was how are my kids going to get to school safely? My children attend HSS so they are not small children, but regardless they need to walk somewhere and there was not a safe route. After hearing back from my administrator I went out and started to shovel. While I was shoveling the local plow truck came by and buried me right back in. Yes, they too are just doing their jobs. It is never an easy decision to close

the schools as it is a ripple effect for parents and staff, but on this day the right decision was made. Imagine the article that would have been written if a child or staff member was killed or hurt trying to get to school or work. We don’t live in the north, snow is not something that we get much of and quite frankly let the kids enjoy the little time they get with the white stuff, because as we saw it turns to a wet mucky mess very quickly. Brenda Deschenes, Secretary Agassiz Elementary Secondary School

What’s up with the FSA? Editor: The Standard If you have children in public school, chances are you’ve heard from the school a little more frequently than usual. This is, after all, the time of year when the FSA debate dominates education headlines and creates a flurry of communication from the school to parents about its use and value. The BC Teachers’ Federation suggests the FSA is a waste of time and that you can safely and easily excuse your child from

writing those exams. The Ministry says the FSA is both mandatory and as valuable as an annual physical. What’s going on? The FSA, or Foundation Skills Assessment, was developed by teachers in the province as a standardized measure of reading, writing and numeracy for the Grade 4 and 7 levels. Principals and vice-principals spend a lot of time responding to questions about the FSA from parents and the public. In some districts there is an expectation

that principals will contact each parent who sends in a letter to excuse their child from the tests. I have heard directly from principals and vice-principals that the number and length of these conversations would be better served focusing on student instruction and achievement. Whether or not a standardized test can provide critical information to teachers, parents and students no longer seems to be the debate. This is not because

Community Keeping the waters wild - Paddler challenges run-of-river projects By Dan Kinvig Black Press

For elite-level kayaker Ryan Bayes of Abbotsford, paddling B.C.’s myriad creeks and rivers is as close as he’ll get to heaven on Earth. “I love the exploration and adventure of not doing the same old thing every day,” said Bayes, 27. “Sometimes, I’ll hike two or three hours to get to a creek that has no road going to it. Sometimes it’s a total waste of time. “But sometimes I’ll end up in a canyon where no human being has probably been before.” These days, Bayes’s paddling pursuit has an added element of urgency. He’s concerned about the proliferation of run-of-river Independent Power Producers (IPPs) – privately operated hydroelectric stations, generally on streams in heavily forested regions of the province. Most people will never see an IPP hydro station up close, but Bayes and other kayakers regularly paddle streams that have pending applications for water-diverting development. While run-of-river proponents say

effective measures can be taken to mitigate impact on wildlife and recreation, Bayes feels the construction of such facilities ruins the wilderness experience. Bayes attends public forums on IPP development, and is sending a letter to the Navigable Waters Protection Program and Transport Canada. But perhaps the most practical element of his activist strategy is proving that some of the waterways earmarked for development are navigable and of recreational benefit. He attaches a camera to his helmet and posts video of his exploits to the fraservalleywhitewater. com website. “It’s hard for someone to defend something they’ve never seen,” Bayes said. “If (a TV network) flew up in a helicopter with a high-def camera, it wouldn’t be an issue anymore. People would say, ‘No way, it’s way too beautiful.’” In total, BC Hydro has 114 electricity purchase agreements (EPAs) for IPP developments. As of Oct. 1, 2010, 65 of those were operational, including 50 hydro projects. The remainder

Paddler Ryan Bayes of Abbotsford says some of the waterways earmarked for run-of-river power projects locally and throughout B.C. have recreational value that will be lost through hydro developments. are biogas, biomass, wind or gas-fired thermal stations. More river-based IPPs are on the way – 19 of the 27 EPAs that BC Hydro approved following its Clean Power Call request for proposals in 2008 were run-of-river projects. Va n c o u v e r - b a s e d Cloudworks Energy Inc. has proposed developments on a series of waterways in the Harrison Lake area – Big Silver, Tretheway and Shovel creeks, and the Northwest Stave River – that are currently going through

the environmental assessment process. The company already operates six run-of-river projects in the Squamish-Lillooet and Harrison regions. G r a h a m Horn, executive vice-president for Cloudworks, said his company seeks to work with kayakers by releasing periodic water flows for recreational use, and by offering online gauging of water levels. “We seek to build these renewable power projects with as little impact and as much

value as we can,” Horn said. “We do several years of baseline research before we go into a project. We understand what the fisheries are, what the invertebrates are in the creek, what the water temperature is, what the water flow or the geomorphology of the creek is. “Once the project’s operating, we track whether we’re affecting any of those things. It’s in our licence that we can’t be having any detrimental impact in those areas.” Bayes’s family owns

Western Canoeing and Kayaking in Abbotsford, and he’s hearing feedback from European tourists that B.C. is making the same mistakes that many European nations have made, in terms of overbuilding hydro development. B.C. is currently the world’s No. 1 kayaking destination, Bayes said, but he’s concerned that in a couple of years, that reputation could deteriorate. “In the world paddling community, B.C. has gotten a lot of bad publicity lately for the rate at which we’re doing the projects,” he said. “The Ashlu Creek project (near Squamish) made it into European magazines, Australian magazines. That was one of those runs everyone wanted to do in their lifetime. Now, you have to arrange it with the dam to divert flow back into the creek if you want to paddle it.” Bayes said he’s not opposed to hydroelectric power in general, and pointed out he doesn’t fight every run-of-river proposal, though the privatization of waterways does

concern him. The problem is, the two factors that make a stream appealing to paddlers – flow and gradient – are precisely what make them attractive to IPP developers. “There are a lot of projects that most people aren’t even aware of,” he said. “They’re a lot more abundant than people think, and for the most part, companies do a good job of keeping them out of the public spotlight. Horn said his company chooses to voluntarily opt into the full assessment process through the Environmental Assessment Office, which includes public consultation. Projects with a capacity of less than 50 megawatts are not required to go through the provincial EAO, and Cloudworks’ stations average around 25 MW. “We like the transparency of it,” Horn said. “Kayakers are able to go onto a government website, and it’s a very rigid and transparent process where stakeholders can go and look at it. In our opinion, it makes for better projects. “We want to protect these habitats. We’re in this process voluntarily, to find out these kinds of things and have these conversations. And we plan to have more with the kayakers.” At times, Bayes feels his struggle to preserve the natural flow of wilderness streams is akin to David vs. Goliath. “The part that’s kind of frustrating, I’ve done meetings in Pemberton, driven out to Chilliwack a bunch of times,” Bayes said. “That’s all voluntary – me and my friends volunteering our time, and it costs us time and money to do it. “Whereas with these projects, there are guys making big salaries whose jobs are to find ways to make it move forward. “It’s not a level playing field, and I recognize I don’t have the legal background to go about fighting this, aside from raising awareness with the public.” For more information on waterway preservation, visit citizensforpublicpower.ca; wildernesscommittee. org; ippwatch.info; or bc-creeks.org\

living in Hope just got better

When we think about wireless in Canada, we think about wireless in Hope. At Bell we are proud to be at the forefront of Canada’s world-class wireless industry. And our definition of Canada includes small, rural and growing communities. That’s why, unlike others, we’ve invested billions of dollars to build the fastest and largest high-speed wireless network across Canada,1 reaching over 96% of the population. That contributes to an environment in which virtually every individual and business can access the information, entertainment and productivity tools they need both at home and abroad. A key focus in deploying the network was the delivery of wireless broadband access both to urban markets and to previously underserved small and rural communities. Having access to this network, and leading-edge devices like Turbo Hubs, Turbo Sticks, Tablets and the latest Smartphones, means communities like yours can be more productive, leading to economic efficiency, job growth, access to education and information, and the ability to market locally produced goods and services not just to the rest of Canada, but to the world. Our next leap forward will be a 4G network capable of delivering wireless speeds of over 100 Mbps. And we hope to deploy urban and rural concurrently, so that everyone can benefit equally and everywhere.

Share a book with your kid Thursday is Family Literacy Day

Bibliotheca

Today is Family Literacy Day - a day to really celebrate children and adults reading and learning together! Lots of studies have shown that reading aloud with your child is an excellent way to both encourage and support l i t e r a c y and school s u c c e s s . Deb Family life is Ireland a busy, busy time but one excellent way to carve out moments together is by reading with your child before bed. Here’s a few good pre-school children’s book ideas, perfect for bedtime. First, a little music to set the mood. One of the gentlest children’s music I’ve heard in while is part of a book/ CD compilation. Peter Yarrow’s ‘Sleepytime Songs’ has all the classics: Puff, the Magic Dragon, Kumbaya, Brahm’s Lullaby, and more. Lovely, soft songs for sleeping. A good title for slowing down for the day is ‘Goodnight, Me’ by Andrew Daddo. Softly hued

illustrations show a baby orangutan and his mother lovingly saying goodnight. Just the thing for coaxing an active toddler to sleep. Based on a Balinese folktale and retold by Margaret Read MacDonald, ‘Go to Sleep Gecko’ tells the story of how Gecko comes to learn how there are some things in this world you just have to put up with. MacDonald is an exquisite storyteller and author of many books, for both children and adults. What can happen to your book when you accidently fall asleep reading? That’s a question Robie H. Harris tackles in her hilarious ‘Maybe a Bear Ate It’. Or was it a stegosaurus that stomped on it? This one might be a teeny bit scary for the really young ones, I saw some pretty wide eyes at our pajama story time. But it has a happy ending after all! Now ‘Cornelius P. Mud, Are you Ready for Bed’ by Barney Saltzberg is just right for the younger set. Momma Pig asks her son if he is ready for bed. Large, bright illustrations work well with the text and eventually, Cornelius is indeed ready for bed. A true bedtime classic is the story, and generations of children have heard it, of a small rabbit who says good night to everything in his room. My daughters loved Margaret

Wise Brown’s ‘Goodnight Moon’ and can still quote the opening page from memory: “In the great green room, There was a telephone, And a red balloon, And a picture of ...” A very gentle, soothing story. All of these titles are currently available in the Hope Library. And don’t ever stop reading aloud! Children love to hear stories that might be beyond their reading ability. Stories like the Harry Potter tales, the C.S. Lewis books, or ‘The Borrowers’ - just a few titles that come to mind. By the way, borrowing from your library is always, always, every single time, free for everyone. And the really good news this month is that there are no longer overdue charges on children’s materials borrowed on children’s cards! So come in and check out some children’s books today. Let us catch you reading! On a personal note, I have been here at the library and part of this great community for a year now. It’s been a good year, a year of learning and doing, and I’m looking forward to seeing you all at the library in this coming year - it’s going to be great! Deb Ireland is the managing librarian at the Hope Library.

created a problem: the FSA as the chosen standardized testing measure is no longer able to do what it was designed to do. As suggested by some in government it is time for the FSA to be replaced with another standardized measure that does not have the political baggage or rhetoric around it. Government has the right to request and look for standardized testing measures in the education system. Is it possible to find one where the participation level

and politicization are not distractions, nor a detriment to the good work that continuously goes on in our schools? It is time for all parties to come to the table and have a meaningful discussion about assessment in our province, one where politics are put aside in the best interest of the students of BC.

Great 2011 season planned for the arts It was a strong turnout of voting members for the 2011 annual general meeting of the Hope & District Arts Council, held on Wednesday, January 19. The meeting commenced with the election of a new executive board of directors. Elected for another term is Rod Fowler, as president, Sharon Blythe, vice-president, Janet Henderson, treasurer, and Adrienne Marshall, director. New members to their positions are: Louise Anderson, secretary, Janet Rigby, director, and Nancy Dobson, director. The new board has lots of exciting arts events in the planning. “The first fun event of 2011 was the wine and cheese ‘get to know you’ that followed the elections,” says vice-president Sharon Blythe. “As usual many more events are being organized for the coming year.” Arts & Culture week falls near the end of April, so watch for posters announcing the ‘Dine & Depart with Celebrity Art’ fund raising dinner. “Some ver y interesting art pieces showed up at this event last year, and you can expect more of the same this year,” adds Blythe. The art council staff

and volunteers will also be soon booking acts for ‘Concerts In The Park’ – a series of free concerts in Hope Memorial Park on Sunday afternoons during the months of July and August. Although “these concerts are free to the public... a hat is passed around at some point during the event to accommodate those who wish to make a donation,” adds Blythe. Philosopher’s Café has revamped its format for 2011 and now meets every Wednesday afternoon at The Blue Moose Coffee House on Wallace street from 3:30 - 5 p.m.. “There is usually a topic of the day, but newspaper articles, books that have been read, community happenings, and almost any other subject are discussed in a friendly environment,” says Blythe. The provincial government has also announced that a week has been set aside in July to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the first provincial park in British Columbia. The Hope & District Arts Council has received funding and will be putting on a huge arts and cultural related event at the Quinette/ Othello Tunnels, including an art show, a guided tour through the tunnels by the manager

of the Hope Museum and Visitor Centre, Inge Wilson, as well as musical entertainment. The B.C. Culture Days task force has also announced that Culture Days across Canada will be held from September 30 to October 2. “HDAC’s ‘Art Machine’ participated last year by having their drop-in workshop attendees create Trading Cards. They will participate again this year with a fun event of some kind,” adds Blythe. In 2011, the month of December will once again bring with it ‘WinterFest’. This will be the sixth year that letters to Santa at the library will be written, and artists will participate in the Church Walk, local Christmas concerts, theatre productions and other events have been organized. The Art Machine, located at 777-5th Avenue, continues to provide drop-ins on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Drop by and pick up a schedule during their Open House, Saturday, January 29 between 1 and 3 p.m.. Interested in exploring your artsy side? Stop by and chat with Art Machine artist, Linda Bishop and program co-ordinator, Diane Ferguson.

And “The Art Machine has another little surprise! Lori Ann Steberl has rented one of the office spaces and now offers piano lessons at the 5th avenue location,” adds Blythe.

“HDAC is thrilled to have added a music component to their arts related programs,” says Blythe. “HDAC is thrilled to have added a music component to their arts related programs,” says Blythe. Love to work with clay? There will also be a two-day workshop called “Feline Fairies” with April Wilding in February. April will help you create cute and fanciful clay felines and then help you glaze your creations. Both workshops will be held from 1 - 4 p.m.. There is a fee, but all materials are supplied. Pre-register for this workshop by calling 604-869-3400. “Of course you can also register the day of the open house!” says Blythe.

Soap star wars

Daytime, comedy stars collide in crossover By Sheila Busteed TV Media SOAP STAR WARS: Susan Lucci may be the queen of soap opera TV, but Victoria Chase is about to give her a run for her money. Wendie Malick, who plays former soap actress Victoria Chase in TV Landâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hot in Cleveland,â&#x20AC;? will get her chance to go toe-to-toe with Lucci of ABCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;All My Childrenâ&#x20AC;? when the two shows air three crossover episodes in February. First, on Wednesday, Feb. 16, â&#x20AC;&#x153;All My Childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? Lucci, Michael E. Knight and Darnell Williams will star as themselves on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hot in Cleveland.â&#x20AC;? This two-part episode will conclude the following week, on Feb. 23. The storyline is a continuation of one first established in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Clevelandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? first season, when Malickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s character discussed her industry rivalry with her nemesis, Lucci. Then, on Thursday, Feb. 24, Malick will take her Victoria Chase character to the â&#x20AC;&#x153;All My Childrenâ&#x20AC;? set when she guest stars as Gertie, a housekeeper who moonlights as a bartender at Confusion after being fired by Lucciâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s character, Erica Cane. â&#x20AC;?There is only room for one Erica Cane in Pine Valley, and Victoria Chase will unfortunately find that out the hard way,â&#x20AC;? said ABCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brian Frons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a unique opportunity to raise awareness of both shows with similar demos, and we expect each otherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s viewers to follow from one show to the next.â&#x20AC;? TV Landâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Larry W. Jones added that the crossover events are a â&#x20AC;&#x153;classic TV form when television worlds collide.â&#x20AC;? The all-star cast of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Hot in Clevelandâ&#x20AC;? features Malick (â&#x20AC;?Just Shoot Me!â&#x20AC;?), Betty White (â&#x20AC;?Golden Girlsâ&#x20AC;?), Jane Leeves (â&#x20AC;?Frasierâ&#x20AC;?) and Valerie Bertinelli (â&#x20AC;?Touched by an Angelâ&#x20AC;?). VOCAL â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;ENGAGEMENTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;: Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use instruments. Have perfect pitch. Explore every genre. And mesmerize the audience.

These are the rules followed by SoCal Vocals, a unique a cappella band made up of current University of Southern California students. And following these rules has led to great success for the group so far. But what happens when the audience isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t right in front of them? SoCal VoCals will find out soon enough when it makes a guest appearance on CBSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rules of Engagementâ&#x20AC;? to perform with cast member Adhir Kalyan. The a cappella singers have certainly built up their national status as of late, through winning competitions, releasing best-selling albums and even doing a little TV, competing on NBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sing-Off.â&#x20AC;? In this new TV appearance, the group will be joined by Timmy (played by Kalyan) when he discovers a love of singing as a hobby. The network hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t released any further details about the performance, so viewers will have to tune in to find out what they sing and if Kalyanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pipes are impressive enough to make the band. SoCal VoCals was formed in 1996 and has since impressed large audiences at venues in and around Los Angeles, including the House of Blues, the Getty Center, the Staples Center and the Walt Disney Concert Hall. South African-born actor Kalyan is the latest star to join the cast of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rules of Engagement.â&#x20AC;? Before starring as Timmy, he had roles in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Nip/Tuckâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Aliens in America.â&#x20AC;? Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s done a bit of film work, too, having starred in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youth in Revolt,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Up in the Airâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Paul Blart: Mall Copâ&#x20AC;? (all released in a very busy 2009). The CBS comedy also stars David Spade (â&#x20AC;?Just Shoot Me!â&#x20AC;?), Patrick Warburton (â&#x20AC;?Family Guyâ&#x20AC;?), Megyn Price (â&#x20AC;?Grounded for Lifeâ&#x20AC;?), Oliver Hudson (â&#x20AC;?Dawsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Creekâ&#x20AC;?) and Bianca Kajlich (â&#x20AC;?Boston Publicâ&#x20AC;?). â&#x20AC;?Hot in Clevelandâ&#x20AC;? star Wendie Malick is headed to Pine Valley

Firefighters face off against the cops The firefighters are pitting themselves up against the cops again this year for a great cause. The Battle of the Badges will pit the bruised RCMP against the Hope fire department with all the funds raised going towards Constable Betker’s third year as a local Cops for Cancer rider. Organizer George Johnston has a unique position with the two teams not only being a Hope volunteer firefighter but a retired RCMP officer. Now backing the smoke-eaters, Johnston has a few tricks up his sleeve, in the battle against his former comrades at arms - and he may need them. “We spanked them last year … but this year they are taking it seriously,” says Johnston. The RCMP are bringing some great players for the fundraiser. The RCMP Eastern Fraser Valley Provincial team will take to the ice

in Hope, after returning from the RCMP provincials. Skating for the RCMP will be Aaron Hoggan, a former Hope resident, a former UBC Thunderbird, and now an officer with the RCMP, says Johnston. “It’s going to be a flyer this year; this time I will be the old guy just holding the gate for the faster players.” But not only are the cops looking to bring in a few ringers in benefit of the fundraiser but the fire department is eyeing a few smoke-eaters from the lower mainland. Tickets for the game are available from any RCMP officer, firefighter, or at Romano Photo, Cheyenne Sports and Lordco in Hope. Tickets are $10 per adult, $5 for students and seniors, and $20 for a family of four. Game time is 5:45 on Saturday, February 19th.

News Tips

Last year Cops for Cancer rider, Constable Leslie Betker, of the Boston Bar RCMP, accepted a $500 donation from firefighters Aaron Saito, Shayne Bennett and Aaron Van Iperen on behalf of the Richmond Fire Fighters Society. The firefighters are taking on the cops once again in support of Betker’s 2011 ride.

Great way for seniors to reach out to seniors Are you a senior looking for chance to make a difference in someone’s life? The Hope Seniors Peer Support Group may offer you that fulfilling opportunity, just through listening, understanding, and offering your emotional support. Peer supporting is not about doing for another senior, but about enabling another independent senior to continue to do for themselves. “One of our volunteers visits with a lady in a wheelchair – appointments are set up between the volunteer and the senior – regular visits are made. A friendship develops and the senior looks forward to the regular visits of the volunteer,” says program coordinator, Pam Wilson. Many of the senior clients of the Peer Support Group “have families, but they do not live in the area and are therefore not regular visitors. Some have no family,” adds Wilson. Training sessions to become a peer support volunteer are starting shortly and more volunteers are needed, says Wilson. Hope Seniors Peer Support trained their first volunteers last

year. Presently all volunteers have clients who come to us through various organizations including the Fraser Health Authority, or referred by doctors, friends, family, their next door neighbour or by referring themselves, says Wilson.

And volunteers too come from all walks of life but they all have a desire to help fellow seniors not to be ”lonely, depressed, isolated, in need of assistance, and to enjoy a visit from a fellow senior.” And volunteers too come from all walks of life but they all have a desire to help fellow seniors not to be ”lonely, depressed, isolated, in need of assistance,

and to enjoy a visit from a fellow senior.” “We do not always get a lot of men to volunteer, but we do have one presently and he is visiting a senior who is not able to get out and about very often – a relationship was struck right away and the volunteer is now welcome to visit anytime…” adds Wilson. Full training to be a peer support worker takes 18 sessions, with volunteer visitor training only the first eight of those sessions. Topics include listening skills, communications, problem solving, anger management, goal setting, self-esteem, and caring for the caregiver. The course is free thanks in part to sponsorship by Envision Financial, All volunteers are required to have a police check and sign a confidentiality commitment. Other mini-workshop training opportunities are also offered as part of the program. If you can spare an hour a week or more to help a fellow senior remain independent call Ingrid at 604-750-0517 or drop by the their shared offices at 388B Wallace Avenue at 10 a.m. on Thursdays.

Sports Call out for badminton players By Barry Stewart The Hope Standard

This was meant to be a story to drum up participation at adult drop-in badminton — but by coincidence, the turn-out was surprisingly healthy on Monday night. “We had 13 tonight, a record for 2011,” said organizer Inge Wilson as she was packing her racquet and heading home. “We may have had a few more in the fall but this was the best so far in the new year.” With winter weather limiting outdoor pursuits, it’s been the pattern in past years to have people bounce back into badminton after the Christmas break. Until Monday, the bounce had been more like a flop, with only one or two of the three courts getting used on most nights. Perhaps the tide has turned now. Another big change for those who haven’t been in the gym this school year is the apparent brightness, thanks to the new lighting fixtures. “They’re T-5 fluorescents,” said school district electrical contractor, Keith Gillis, on Monday. “We replaced the original T-12s and the new ones use two thirds the power and give about 50 per cent more light. We replaced the metal halides at the high school gym as well last summer and they save 30 per cent of the power and give about 30 per cent more light than the old ones.” Local log home builder, Ford Morgan, figured he hadn’t darkened the gym doors in about 12 years when he came back on Monday night. “It used to be 50 cents, the last time I played!” he said. It’s now $2, which

Marvin Cadano sets up for a return volley in Monday night adult badminton at C.E. Barry School. Sessions run on Mondays and Wednesdays at the school, from 6:30 to 8:30. Cost is $2 and bring your own racquet and non-marking runners. BARRY STEWART PHOTO

covers the cost of shuttlecocks and insurance provided by the sponsors, the Hope & District Recreation Commission. “My friend Rick told me about it,” said Morgan. “I figured I’d come have some fun and get in shape.” While they were busy increasing the cost of the game, they went and changed the scoring

system on Morgan. It had him confused for a few games but he was getting the hang of it as the night moved along. “I’m not used to it yet — but they say it will be better,” he added. The “new” scoring system has been in use for some time in other parts of the world but has now taken a stronghold in Hope, thanks to a

handful of locals who have been playing at St. Mary’s in Chilliwack on Mondays. In the old system, you only scored when your team was serving — like in the old scoring system in volleyball. Now in both net games, there is a score for one of the sides on every serve. Make a mistake on your service and the other side gets a

point... and you lose the serve. Old games ended at 15 and they now go to 21. “The games seem to move a little faster now,” said Wilson, “and it kind of makes the score closer, because you gain points off the other team’s faults, not just your own good plays.” The current attendance seems to

be two thirds male and one third female, with ages ranging from teens up into the 60s, said Wilson. When it’s a good turn-out, all the games are doubles, allowing 12 people to play at once. Teams are generously mixed around as the night rolls along, so games vary from intense to more relaxed and tactical, depending on the players involved. There’s lots of laughter and praise — and every game ends with a sporting handshake. A player who is totally new to the game might have an easier time breaking in on a Monday night, when there has usually been more free space, compared to Wednesdays. A past history in the sport is an asset, though. Newcomers Erhard Behrens and Nat Baker grew up playing badminton. Behrens, who moved to Canada from South Africa in 2009, has been in Hope since October of 2010. “I grew up in Cullinan, [home of the ‘Cullinan Diamond’] which is a small town like Hope. We had a group much like this, playing throughout the year.” Baker, who works at the Hope Visitor Info Center, grew up in Middleton, Nova Scotia, where he played the sport in high school and went to the Provincials in singles badminton. “It’s a good social atmosphere here,” said Baker. “It’s a bit competitive too, which is good. I like to challenge myself to get better every week.” Badminton nights are open to age 15 and up, Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at C.E. Barry gym. Players need their own racquet and non-marking runners.
