Hungry bears roam streets 120 sightings have already been reported Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

A berry shortage has left more hungry bears than usual scrounging for food around Hope. The increase is a result of a cold spring coupled with the heavy snowpack in the mountains, according to conservation officer James Kelly. “If the bears learn they can gain easy food in town or off somebody’s property, they’re more apt to stay in the area and continue getting the easy meal,” he said. “Bears can stay around basically right through until hibernation.” The Ministry of Environment’s Conservation Officer Service recorded 122 reports of bear sightings in Hope between April 1, 2010 and March 31, 2011. So far this year, they have already received 120. Bear traps have been set up with hopes of capturing and releasing the animals. Conservation officers trapped a black bear on Monday just off of Kettle Valley Road. Kelly said its ear tags indicated that it was a “repeat offender” and was consequently euthanized. A string of bear sightings have kept residents on edge. The RCMP has received numerous calls in the last couple weeks from people in the area who have spotted bears roaming around their homes. Bears have report-

edly been opening freezers and eating contents, pushing on doors to get into homes, removing screens from windows and lunging at home owners. One bear in particular has been living in an abandoned house on Robertson Crescent. Heather Bergstrom found the animal roaming through her backyard last Wednesday. “He just didn’t care about anybody and wasn’t aggressive at all,” she said. “I just think they’re beautiful animals and if we leave them alone, they’ll be fine and just take off.” Another bear visited Alf Bourne’s house on Saturday afternoon, near Third Avenue and Coquilhalla Street. Bourne watched out his window as the bear climbed over his backyard fence to look for food. He said the animal just sniffed around, poked its head into bushes and walked around his flower garden a couple times before taking off. “He walked around like he owned the place,” said Bourne. “In 18 years here, I have never had anything happen like that before. I was really shocked.” A hungry bear wandering along Park Avenue also forced students at C.E. Barry Intermediate School to stay indoors during lunch and gym class last week. Kelly said conservation officers are advising prop-

Murakami earns service award

Follow us on facebook & twitter, or 24/7 online at hopestandard.com

The purpose of the Betty Urquhart Community Service Award is to recognize those who give back to their communities. And this year, the University of the Fraser Valley had two winners – Hope’s Patricia Murakami and Abbotsford’s Dr. Elizabeth Watt. Both were nominated for the award and because they give tirelessly to improve the quality of life for people, the committee chose both of them. Murakami is long-time volunteer in that community. She founded the Tillicum Centre 40 years ago to give people in the community, who were dealing with mental and physical disabilities, a place where they could go and just hang out and have fun. She has volunteered at the Tillicum Centre since it opened and is well known for her cheerful demeanor and willingness to help people — even those in a crisis situation. She helps organize leisure and recreation activities at the Tillicum Centre, but this year deiced it was time to retire. While happy to win the award,

DOWN PAYMENTS ARE FOR HIGH VALUE ITEMS.

LIKE YOU.

Murakami says she wants to share the recognition with the many other volunteers at the Tillicum Centre. The centre would not be the success it is today, she says, without the help of many people who have stood beside her and lent a hand. “I’d like to accept it on behalf of all the people who have worked at the Tillicum Centre. There is a handful of people who have been there since the very beginning and every success we have is because of all the people who dedicate their time to the centre.” During her many years volunteering at the Tillicum Centre, she was also a volunteer teacher’s aide offering support to children with learning disabilities. She is also on the board of directors of the Murakami Centre for Lyme Research, Education, and Assistance Society, serving as the secretarytreasurer. Formally educated in the field of clinical psychology, Murakami is known for her deep understanding of people and priorities. She is well known and respected in the community where she has lived for years.

Four arrested in drug bust RCMP seize thousands of marijuana plants on ‘modified’ property

ficking. Six high capacity diesel generators were powering the grow-

op, which was spread throughout a house and 11 greenhouses. According to the

RCMP, the use of these generators in commercial grow-ops is increasing as it supple-

ments electrical consumption and keeps the operation off the power grid. However, they can cause leaks or spills of diesel and oil into lakes, streams and aquifers. The environmental impact on the Hope property has yet to be assessed. Police arrested two men and two women in the bust, but production of a controlled substance and possession for the purpose of trafficking charges are still pending. The RCMP is also searching for another person of interest. Lintau said the bust is connected to the seizure of six other diesel generators from a nursery business in Surrey.

Collision shuts down highway A 47-year-old truck driver from Abbotsford is suspected to have been impaired when he caused a multi-vehicle accident early Friday morning on Highway 1 near Hope. Cpl. Dave Doyle of Fraser Valley Traffic Services said the driver was travelling west near

Hope and the Hunter Creek Scales at about 4 a.m. when he lost control of his trailer, which was loaded with sand and bags of gravel. The load was scattered over the highway, causing one semi to crash, and a motorcyclist to lose control. Another semi

managed to stop after running over the debris. The motorcyclist was taken to hospital and was released. Doyle said there were no serious injuries. He said alcohol and/or drugs, as well as speed, may have been factors in the crash. The Abbotsford man was given a 24-

hour driving suspension and a 90-day driving prohibition. He has been released on a promise to appear in Chilliwack court in October. The crash shut down traffic in the area for a few hours and vehicles were re-routed through Hope to Highway 7.

The RCMP’s coordinated marijuana enforcement team seized 6,496 mature plants on a rural property in the 20200 block of Kettle Valley Rd. on June 8. Thirteen dogs were also taken into care by the SPCA. “It appears that it was a fairly sophisticated and significant operation in size,” said Cpl. Annie Linteau. “Some of the home was modified for that purpose.” The plants seized equates to 552 kilograms (1,218 pounds) of marijuana, which police believe was intended for export rather than local consumption or traf-

erty owners to protect livestock with an electric fence, and remove attractants such as garbage, bird seed, pet food and fruit trees. While some bears appear tame, residents are reminded that they are wild animals with unpredictable behaviour. The bear sightings have prompted Lydia Koot to organize a bear awareness program in Hope. She is working with the district, RCMP, conservation office and school board to develop a strategy that reduces the number of bear incidents and fatalities in the community, minimizes public fear about bears, and increases public understanding of bears and their natural habitat. As a result, Koot hopes people can learn to coexist with the wild animals. “It’s very upsetting if bears have to be destroyed because of our wrongdoing,” she said. “We realize that once in a while they have to be shot, but let’s reduce it as much as possible and not let it come to that. If there’s nothing

to eat here, they’ll move on.” The project is currently in the beginning stages, but Koot hopes to introduce the program this summer through the Hope Mountain Centre. For more information, contact the centre at 604-869-1274. RCMP bear tips: • Don’t feed bears under any circumstances or allow them access to garbage or other food. Store trash inside buildings or other inaccessible areas. In addition, don’t leave garbage or pet food out overnight. If bird feeders have been visited by a bear, stop feeding birds for one to two weeks, and begin taking feeders in at night. • Do not frighten or scare bears. Shouting, clapping, blasting a car horn or motion-sensitive lights may scare off a bear temporarily. However, don’t taunt a bear if it fails to respond to your efforts to frighten it. • Sometimes when a bear is sighted, crowds HEATHER BERGSTROM / Submitted may gather.

Gearing up for Canada Day party Classic car show takes over downtown on July 1 Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

More than 200 cars are rolling into town this week for the sixth annual Canada Day Classic Car Show. The event is open to all types of vehicles, and will feature everything from 1914 classics to 2011 stock cars. “Every vehicle is unique. If someone wants to see diversity, they can come to one show and see it all,” said event organizer Scott Medlock. “It’s a nice day to drive to Hope and it’s a good place to spend the day.” Brett Rees’ 2009 Dodge Challenger will be featured in the show this year. The Kitsilano resident has wrapped his car in desert camouflage as a tribute to fallen Canadian soldiers and a fundraiser for WoundedWarriors.ca. Rick Limb’s race car will also be on display. “It’s kind of nice to see something unique that people don’t get a chance to get up close to very often,” said Medlock. The annual event attracts cars and trucks from all over the Lower Mainland, and has

hosted vehicles from as far away as Kelowna, Cache Creek and Washington state. The car show is sponsored by the local Chamber of Commerce, Lordco, Kal Tire and Canyon Cable/Napa Auto Parts. The event runs from 9

a.m to 3 p.m. along Wallace Street, between Third and Fifth avenues. Registration is by donation, with all proceeds going to the local Story Time in the Park literacy program. The first 200 vehicles will receive a collector dash plaque.

An emergency roadside kit from Kal Tire will also be handed out to the crowd favourite. The car show is taking place in conjunction with the new Strongman Competition in Memorial Park. The event will see competitors participate in six events including the truck pull, car lift, tire flip and log press. At the Hope Visitor Centre, there will be live entertainment, kids activities, Canada Day cake, and information booths featuring local businesses and organizations. Mayor Laurie French and Chilliwack-Fraser Canyon MP Mark Strahl will kick off the July 1 event at 11 a.m. with Emily Bailey singing the national anthem. There will also be a performance by Francis Melling, a chainsaw demonstration by Pete Ryan, and appearances by Smokey Bear and the Haig fire crew throughout the day. Children’s activities include a bouncy house, relay races, crafts and face painting. Festivities run until 2 p.m. at 919 Water Ave.

Counterfeit bills circulating in Hope

M U N I C I PA L N E W S

The RCMP is warning Hope residents to be on the lookout for counterfeit money. Two local businesses have received fake $100 bills in the last couple weeks. Cpl. Tammy Hollingsworth said each business handling cash should have a policy in place for recognizing and dealing with coun-

terfeit currency. The newer “Canadians Journey” series notes are easily identified by the holographic strip on the front left side of the bill. They also have several other security features that can be quickly checked without special equipment. For example, the watermark portrait and currency denomination

can be seen from both sides when held up to the light. On the back left side of the bank note, the dashed metallic lines will also shift from gold to green as the bill is tilted. When the note is held up to the light, the dashed lines will merge to form a continuous dark line. Bank notes also have ultraviolet (UV) threads

The District of Hope would like to advise that there will be paving on Flood Hope Road beginning at Silverhope Road / Silverview Road to Owl Street from approximately June 28, 2011 to July 22, 2011.

scattered randomly on the bill, along with the words Bank of Canada and the denomination. The red and yellow UV threads intertwine to form images and words. Hollingsworth suggests people check for

a least two security features, as a counterfeiter may perfect one of the features when producing illegal currency. For more information or to report a counterfeit bill, contact the Hope RCMP at 604-869-7750.

Minor delays are to be expected and paving will be subject to weather conditions. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. If you have questions please call the Public Works Department at 604-869-2333. 6_11W_DOH29_5012546

Opinion

Attention rioters: It’s payback time It’s payback time and the perpetrators of the post-Stanley Cup mob violence should be dealt with immediately and appropriately. But neither is likely to happen if resolving the pain and hurt of Vancouver’s notorious Game 7 riot – and the millions in resulting damages – is left up to B.C.’s overburdened court system. There has to be another way to deal with the hurt and damage caused by intoxicated and crowd-maddened knuckleheads last week. While naming and shaming may give victims and shocked witnesses a momentary feeling of empowerment, this online outpouring of grief and frustration will amount to nothing if the police and court systems don’t have the resources to deal with the aftermath. What if, instead of just blogging their apologies, perpetrators actually sat down and faced their victims in a well-established process called restorative justice and were encouraged to make things right? What if, instead of moaning about their loss of jobs, sponsorships, respect they started to think about someone else for a change and listened to the victims and their needs? What if they had to pay insurance deductibles and act as taxi drivers for those inconvenienced when their cars were overturned and torched? What if they had to organize, pay for and clean up a family-friendly pro-Vancouver event like the one they trashed? What if the perpetrators had to work for free for one of the businesses they looted or were appointed to a city crew to clean up street litter and graffiti? Publish the results? Why not? The public needs closure and its faith in the justice system restored, otherwise frustration will continue to mount, ratcheting up the anger and the hate, and further blackening the city’s tarnished reputation.

Asia-Pacific project marches on B.C. VIEWS Tom Fletcher VICTORIA – Here are a few items that didn’t make the daily news cycle as B.C. residents prepared for the long-awaited summer of 2011 to begin. • After her meeting with Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Ottawa last week, Premier Christy Clark delivered a luncheon speech to the Economic Club of Toronto. Her big talking point for the speech was the rise of the AsiaPacific region, “the fastest-growing middle class in the history of humanity.” The theme ran through her pitch to the federal government for a share of Ottawa’s largestever shipbuilding contract, and her recent meeting with western premiers in Yellowknife. No word on how Clark’s

enthusiasm for the west as Canada’s economic engine of the future went over with the Bay Street crowd. • After the speech, Clark took the wheel of a Chevy Volt electric car for a spin around Toronto with a GM Canada vice-president riding shotgun. She pronounced the car “fantastic technology.” This is pertinent as B.C. residents get ready to pay the latest increase in B.C.’s carbon tax. Effective July 1, the tax on a litre of gasoline rises from 4.45 cents to 5.56, with comparable increases to other carbon fuels. Clark has inherited Gordon Campbell’s aggressive climate change-clean energy agenda, and it’s not yet clear what will become of it. She has committed to the last consumer carbon tax increase in 2012 (up to 6.67 cents on a litre of gas), but the fate of the big hydroelectric push remains uncertain. Those plug-in electric cars need to start selling before Campbell’s

gamble of developing increasingly costly electricity starts to pay off. One potential competitor is natural gas-powered vehicles, taking advantage of huge new shale gas discoveries in B.C. and elsewhere. • Campbell’s pending

“This is pertinent as B.C. residents get ready to pay the latest increase in B.C.’s carbon tax.” appointment as Canada’s high commissioner in the United Kingdom should warm the hearts of conspiracy theorists.

Standard

Students of Bill Vander Zalm will know that he sees the harmonized sales tax and EU trade as an effort to impose world government and set B.C.’s sales tax rate in Europe. Early in his goofy antiHST campaign, Vander Zalm claimed this was plan B for world government after the conspirators failed to impose a global carbon tax. If the HST is a conspiracy, it’s a mighty big one. Finance Minister Kevin Falcon never tires of reminding people that 140 countries already have value-added taxes, including China and those other Asia-Pacific tigers that are dominating the world economy. • Douglas College in New Westminster and the Heilongjiang Institute of Science and Technology in Harbin, China have celebrated the graduation of 137 students in their dual-degree business administration program.

Letters Rambo bridge: We should move on In regards once again to the “Rambo Bridge.” I have watched the movie many times and replayed the closing credits and no where does it even mention being filmed in Hope or thanking the residence of Hope. Vancouver, Maple Ridge and Golden Ears Park are the only ones mentioned. The only reference to Hope was

as Rambo walked into town and the scene showed the Gateway to Holiday Land log with the neon light under it saying “Welcome to Hope.” Where is that neon light? Stallone doesn’t care about how some are holding on the memory of this film, he moved on and so should they when it comes to wasting taxpayers money to save any part of the bridge for display

Don’t be fooled by hype In regards to all the government hype about how good the HST is, don’t be fooled by it. Penner’s ad in the Hope Standard makes it sound as if this government is doing everyone a favor by dropping it to 10 per cent. Do your homework people, there are many items under the old PST that were not taxable, but are now taxable under the HST. Under this HST system you will pay more than you ever paid under the old GST and PST system. This is an example of a $1,000 item that would not have been charged the PST under the old system. PST (7%) and GST (5%) spend

$1,000 pay $50 GST, no PST under the old system Under the current system at 12 per cent HST, spend $1,000 you pay $120 for HST. Future system of 10 per cent HST (if they can be believed) spend $1,000 pay $100 in HST. If you think this government is looking after you, think again. They only have their own interest in this scenario. As far as the business world goes, of course they want to keep it. They are one of the few who will benefit from it. Art Boucher

Drug war failed Forty years later, the global “war on drugs” is a failure, and legalizing and regulating drugs as a way to put a stop to the violence inherent in the illegal drug market, contributing to sager communities. Prohibition, does not work. It’s no longer a question of whether legalizing drugs is a serious topic of debate for serious people. As a veteran police officer, I see drug legalization as squarely on the table as an important solution that policy makers need to consider.

A friend and colleague, started using marijuana for the shooting debilitating pain in his legs and feet, and his use of narcotic pain medications was going down. With the help of medical marijuana, his narcotic pain medications

were cut by half, and he was able to return to work part time for the first time since 2001. He now works four hours a day assisting with the medical marijuana certification process. Narcotics, or Opioid pain medications have numerous side effects. We should only hope our leaders will support new and improved medical marijuana laws, not only because it is compassionate but it is practical. William Perry

Distant wildfires a threat Air quality warnings influenced by blazes Jeff Nagel Black Press

Air quality warnings issued by Metro Vancouver are increasingly due to out-of-region wildfires rather than local pollution, according to a new report. Two air quality advisories issued last year in August lasted a combined total of seven days and both resulted from smoke wafting here from distant fires, noted Metro’s report on air quality in 2010. That fits a trend of the “increasing influence of wildfire particulate” triggering warnings here, it said. Historically, it has been ground-level ozone, not fires, that has degraded air quality in the summer and sparked advisories. Particulate levels stayed within a Canada-wide standard, but exceeded Metro Vancouver’s own more stringent target maximum at times during last August. Metro runs 26 monitoring stations across the Lower Mainland, including the Hope Othello Compressor site, to track air conditions and determine when public warnings are needed. Ozone levels stayed

The Tyaughton Lake fire near Lillooet was one of the wildfires that sent smoke south to Metro Vancouver in 2010.

within both the Canada-wide standard and the Metro target at all times last year. That’s an improvement because ozone had exceeded the Metro target at least once in each of the previous nine years. Over the past two decades, the report said, detected levels of most major air pollutants have fallen. It says emissions of carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide have been reduced – despite continued population growth in the Lower Mainland – through better vehicle emission standards and the AirCare program, while

lower levels of sulphur in vehicle fuels has cut sulphur dioxide levels. The shutdown of several refineries and lowered emissions from cement factories also cut sulphur dioxide levels. While peak and average levels of carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide have continued to decline in recent years, sulphur dioxide and particulate levels have been relatively flat. Cutting ozone is a challenge because it forms when volatile organic compounds – often from vegetation, including farms – reacts with nitrogen oxides on hot sunny days.

Peak ozone levels are down from the 1980s and early 1990s, but average levels have risen slightly. The report cautions levels of pollutants can deviate from depending on local conditions. A two-year study led by UBC researchers aims to determine more ways to cut ozone. Metro is also aiming to reduce particulate from off-road diesel machinery. The region is imposing new fees on excavators, loaders and similar equipment with heavily polluting older engines to put financial pressure on their owners to clean up.

of the most beautiful in the world because of its simplicity in colour and design. • The red and white flag featuring the stylized maple leaf was raised for the first time over Parliament Hill in Ottawa, in 1965. • Red and white were designated as Canada’s official colours during the proclamation of the Royal Arms of Canada by King George V in 1921. • The Canadian flag was first planted on the summit of Mount Everest in 1982 and appeared in space for the first time in 1984, on the uniform of Canadian astronaut Marc Garneau.

Getting back to nature Outdoor centre offers backpacking experience Kerrie-Ann Schoenit Hope Standard

Hope Mountain Centre is offering a new program this summer for outdoor enthusiasts. A guided overnight hike through the wildflower meadows of Manning Park will provide an introduction to basic backcountry camping. Participants will learn about appropriate hiking gear, food planning, general trail etiquette and emergency preparedness. “There’s lots of easy hikes to do in the province, so you don’t have to equate backpacking with merciless, physical pain,” said program director Kelly Pearce, a former Manning Park naturalist. “We want to set people up for a lifetime of backcountry enjoyment. We want that trip to be one of those landmark experiences in a person’s life that changes the way they recreate and gives them

Hope Mountain Centre program director Kelly Pearce shows some of the gear needed for backcountry camping.

a new opportunity to enjoy the wilderness in a way they might not have before.” Participants will hike five kilometres along the moderate terrain of Heather Trail before pitching a tent in Buckhorn campground. The site provides easy access to a stream for drinking water, sprawling wildflower meadows in full bloom, and First Brother – a nearby peak

offering stunning views of the North Cascade Mountains. Along the way, Pearce and trip leader Jim Flom will identify animal signs and habitat species while discussing mountain ecology and park history. How to avoid bears and protect against environmental challenges are also topics covered. Hikers will learn how to keep a clean camp and

store food to avoid intrusion. “Basically anywhere in B.C. in the summer outside your front door is bear country,” said Pearce. “We want to give people of all ages the skills and confidence so they’ll keep on backpacking for the rest of their lives. It’s about overcoming that fear, but also having a healthy respect for them.” The Introduction to Backpacking program runs July 16-17, with a meeting on July 7 to review gear, food, and basic backpacking and camping information. This trip is open to individuals, families and children over the age of six. Previous backpacking experience is not required. The program costs $150 for adults and $20 for children under 18.

10% IF HST REMAINS The Federal government has made it the law to reduce the HST in BC. The HST will drop from the current 12% to 10% in two stages -- if BC doesn't go back to the 12% GST/PST. The BC Government asked Ottawa to reduce the HST to reduce the cost to families, and now it is law. 10% HST will save the average BC family $120 per year compared to going back to the higher 12% GST/PST. Since 2001, the BC Government has decreased provincial income taxes by 37%. BC gained 5,200 jobs in May and 30,000 more people are working compared to last year at this time.* Lower taxes and more jobs. It's working for BC. *Employment figures courtesy of Statistics Canada

Effective June 1 to Sept. 30th

Be water wise...

• Deep soak your lawn weekly in the early morning or early evening when the least evaporation occurs • Give plants only the amount of water that they need • Use low-angle or pulsating sprinklers that produce large fat droplets of water • Set sprinklers to water the lawn, not sidewalks and driveways. • Adjust your lawn mower to a higher setting. A taller lawn shades roots and holds soil moisture better Planting • Add 2 to 4” of organic material, such as peat or compost, to the soil, adding mulch to your garden slows evaporation • Native & adaptive plants will use less water, be resistant to local plant diseases & pests

Kids can learn golf for free Ladies group arranges for local club pro to teach classes Hope Standard

It may be that there’s no such thing as a free lunch — but free golf lessons for kids? Well... it’s true. The Ladies’ group at the Hope Golf Course has sponsored junior golf lessons by certified instructor, Valerie Beebe, the new teaching pro at the local course. Lessons will be on Mondays, starting July 11 and running for seven weeks. Tuesday Ladies’ Golf captain, Dodi Schiefermeier said on Monday, “I was asked by Claudette, the new course manager, to ask the ladies if they’d like to donate to the junior program. We voted on it and we were able to handle the sponsorship quite easily. We’ll also be having a sign-up sheet for volunteers to come out and assist with the lessons.” Beebe, who grew up in Ottawa but is now a Chilliwack resident, started teaching golf seven years ago at the Kinkora club in Chilliwack. She’s also a certified skating instructor and a former coach of artistic and rhythmic gymnastics. Her husband, Ross builds golf clubs under the Chimo Golf label. “He builds the clubs and I teach people how to use them,” says Valerie. “I’ve taught kids as young as three years old and adults as old as 73.” Beebe says she had never played the Hope course before she was invited to be the

teaching pro here on a threedays-per-week basis. She will also continue her work at Kinkora, where she runs the junior program on Wednesdays. Due to high water, she still hadn’t played all nine holes, as of Monday. “It’s going to be just beautiful out here this summer,” she enthused. “It’s going to be a great fit for me. I’ve met

“The lessons are all paid for by the ladies. It may not always be the case but that’s how it is this summer.” Valerie Beebe some of the ladies’ group and they’re very positive. It’s a great thing that they’re doing for the juniors. “The lessons are all paid for by the ladies. It may not always be the case but that’s how it is this summer,” said Beebe. “We’ll have the age six to nine group from 3:15 to 4 p.m. I’ll call them the ‘Jiggers,’ because a jigger is an old golfing term for a wedge,” explained Beebe. “The age 10 to 17s will be from 4:30 to 6 p.m. I’ll call them the ‘Cleeks,’ as that’s an old word for a driving iron. “I’ve put a limit of 10 for the older group and maybe six for the younger ones,” she

advised. “I’d like kids to sign up with Claudette at the pro shop ahead of time, if possible. That way we can plan for kids who need to borrow clubs. I will accept drop-ins while space is available — but without any advertising, there were already six kids signed up for the older group.” A school teacher from Lytton has been bringing her students down to Hope on a bus for various activities, said Beebe, and when she heard about the lessons she wanted to sign them up. Understandably, that caused some concerns, as the lessons were intended for Hope youths. “I’ve worked something out, though,” said Beebe. “I’ll be working with them for an hour, earlier in the day.” Beebe and fellow teaching pro, Jennifer Greggain were in Hope on Monday to discuss an exciting learn-to-golf program for kids. Greggain lives in Rosedale and works at the Bridal Falls course. There will be more details coming in August about their SNAG (Starting New at Golf) program, which will be offered through Hope and District Recreation in the fall. It has also been promoted to local elementary schools, so there may soon be a lot of local kids getting introduced to this life-long game. To register your child for the junior golf lessons, phone the golf course at 604-8695881, or drop by the pro shop during daylight hours. To contact Beebe directly, you can phone 604-819-5445.

BARRY STEWART / THE STANDARD

The new teaching pro at Hope Golf Course, Valerie Beebe, is aiming to share her love and knowledge of the game with local juniors. The Tuesday Ladies’ group has sponsored free lessons for kids aged six to 17, starting on July 11.

He is survived by his wife, Pearl; daughters, Marian (John), Noreen (Ken), and Brenda (Bruce); Grandchildren, Kacie Noble, Kevin & Ryan Pankewich, Jasmine & Jake Webster, and adopted granddaughter Brandi Coull. Eileen Harper-DeLair spent her teen years with the Martins. Neil was predeceased by his mother Sally Vernon. Neil’s large extended family was involved in his upbringing, and he was especially close to them. He lived all of his life in Hope, and was proud to call Hope his home. He was a hard-working family man and his home was open to his friends. His backyard was his haven! Neil’s favourite pastimes were being outdoors listening to the birds, observing nature, and walking at the Hope Airport. He enjoyed going for his “coffee time” with his friends at the Hope Drive In. Neil was a dedicated employee for 40 years for Roy Morrow & Sons (Chevron). He was a volunteer with Hope Fire Dept. for over 25 years. A gathering of family and friends to remember Neil will be held at the Hope Golf Club on Thursday, June 30, 2011 at 2 pm.
