New economic development slogan focuses on the positive The Hope Businesses and Development Society is putting a positive spin on our ailing economy, with Hope councilor Scott Medlock announcing a new slogan for the community’s economic development efforts at

last Monday’s council meeting. Headed up by new executive director, Tyler Mattheis, the new society will market its economic development efforts to the business world as ‘Advantage HOPE’. “Advantage HOPE is a great name for our new society…. Advantage Hope can mean many things in different situations, and to different people; the name sets the tone for a positive interaction,” said Mattheis. The society’s new operating

name was the brainchild of a naming committee made up of two directors of the society, and three members of the society’s resource panel. The “Naming Task Force’ is continuing their work on the development of a logo for the new society. As a logo design is awaited, the new economic development officer has been kept busy setting up the society’s new office, establishing a 2011 work plan to “benchmark” their efforts, and getting to know

Missing Women Commissioner Wally Oppal wants to expand his inquiry, allowing a broader look at how serial killer Robert Pickton was allowed to prey on vulnerable women. The commission is currently framed as a hearing commission but Oppal has recommended the provincial government reshape it to also include a study commission. That would allow it to tour the province and hear from more witnesses, particularly First Nations, in a less-adversarial setting than formal court-style hearings where those testifying face cross-examination. Oppal said the change would make the inquiry more inclusive and allow its recommendations to be shaped by more public input. Ernie Crey, brother of one of the missing women, supports the proposed change.

He said it would allow a hard look at government policies and civic zoning that concentrated drug-addicted vulnerable women in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, a regular hunting ground for Pickton. His sister Dawn, whose DNA was found at the Pickton farm, frequented the Downtown Eastside rather than Kerrisdale or Kitsilano, Crey said, because that’s where services like soup kitchens, clothing depots and low-rent housing are found. Crey blames a “web of policies” by federal, provincial and civic governments, along with “NIMBYs do not want social services in some parts of Vancouver that would attract impoverished people, mentally ill people or

the drug-dependent.” Without a study component, Crey predicted the inquiry will largely ignore the social side and turn mainly into a legalistic battle between testifying police representatives and lawyers interrogating them. Oppal’s appointment last fall to head the inquiry was criticized by some groups as a poor choice. Crey said the naming of a companion study commission would allow the province to now name an aboriginal woman with a background in law to head it. “There’s no shortage of qualified aboriginal people, particularly women, who could fill that role,” he said. T h e recommendation from Oppal came after he heard demands for

a separate inquiry from family members of women who went missing from northern B.C. communities, along what has been dubbed the Highway of Tears. The province hasn’t given any immediate response. Attorney General Barry Penner said he will bring the proposal to cabinet, but questioned whether it might lengthen the inquiry and delay its findings. Oppal is currently supposed to report back by Dec. 31. The inquiry is to focus on what happened in the five years between 1997 – when a woman escaped from the Port Coquitlam farm after nearly dying in a bloody knife fight with Pickton – and 2002 when he was

ultimately charged with murder after several more women were killed. The earlier investigation of the 1997 assault, the 1998 decision to drop charges in that case and the delay in eventually arresting Pickton again are all part of Oppal’s terms of reference. Recommendations are to include how police should investigate cases of missing women and suspected serial killings, including the coordination of investigations when multiple police forces are involved. Pickton was convicted of killing six missing women but had been linked by DNA to dozens more. He claimed to an undercover officer he killed 49 women.

The Hope RCMP presented their year-end report to council, last week, bringing to light many accomplishments and challenges ahead. We have had numerous wire thefts and thefts from vehicle in the rural areas, Staff Sergeant Dale Kjemhus told the Hope Standard, and are purchasing trail cameras that “we will be using … in these areas as required depending on the incidents occurring.” In some of these high crime areas local police have signs posted notifying the public and warning would-be thieves of the video surveillance. Kjemhus, who is retiring in June, reminded the public to “always call in crimes” to the Hope detachment. “If we don’t know about them, we absolutely cannot do anything.” In a new policing era of information and intelligence-lead investigations police use crime reports to identify hot spots in the community. “I don’t wish to give the areas that we consider hot spots as this would warn the offenders as to what areas we are concentrating on.... suffice it to be known that we will be targeting specific areas depending on the increase in crime in the area.... And according to police intelligence-based policing has paid off with crime stats in almost all areas “down.”

“The only area that was significantly up in both Hope and Boston Bar were thefts.... which we are targeting,” Kjemhus, told the Hope Standard. The prolific-offender program is yet another successful crime initiative new to Hope. This year the program started with nine males and three females identified as chronic offenders. Officers “do curfew checks regularly and request curfew conditions of the prolific offenders charged,” said Kjemhus in his report. Dubbed the prolific offender’s ‘handler’, an officer also “encourages behavioral changes in their prolific offender”, as well as “making constant efforts to breach those not abiding” by court orders, added Kjemhus. “We currently have a total of 14 prolific offenders. Three have curfew conditions. Two are incarcerated for an extended period of time. One has an outstanding warrant and is believed to be out of province. Two have moved out of Hope recently,” added Kjemhus. In combating vehicle theft and vehicle break-ins in the Boston Bar and Hope region, police bait cars are regularly parked on the streets awaiting an unsuspecting thief. RCMP have not yet announced who will be replacing Staff Sergeant Dale Kjemhus when he retires.

Premier-designate Christy Clark takes questions at the B.C. legislature Monday.

New premier to be sworn in March 14 By Tom Fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – Christy Clark confirmed Monday she will be sworn in March 14 as B.C.’s 35th premier, and promised to unveil a smaller cabinet than the last one appointed by Premier Gordon Campbell. Meeting with reporters at the legislature for the first time since her selection as B.C. Liberal leader March 26, Clark declined to say how much smaller she would make the government’s executive council. It currently stands at an all-time high of 20 full ministries as well as ministers of state and

parliamentary secretaries. Clark didn’t rule out calling an early election some time in 2011, saying only that it would be after a province-wide referendum on whether to scrap the harmonized sales tax. Clark has indicated she wants that referendum held June 24. She renewed her campaign pledge to restore $15 million in gambling grants cut from charities last year, and to launch a review of the B.C. government’s relationship with charities. Faced with a recession and budget deficits, former housing and social development minister Rich Coleman restricted arts

and sports grants to those that benefit young people and the disabled. B.C. government revenues from lotteries and casinos have grown to $1 billion a year, with a large new destination casino being considered for downtown Vancouver. “My position on it has always been that if we’re going to expand gambling in British Columbia, we need to make sure that there is money going back to communities and charities,” Clark said. “I think that was the crucial tradeoff that citizens bought into, and so we need to make sure that if we’re expanding gambling, that we keep that deal with the citizens of the

province.” A commission will be appointed to examine the government’s relationship with charities, and to recommend ways that they can be assured of stable funding. Clark said her first priority is to make sure the government considers families in all of its decisions. Asked how that fits in with increasing medical services plan premiums and BC Hydro rates that are expected to rise 50 per cent in the next few years, she said government has to look beyond tax rates to the full costs imposed on families by the province.

Critics question Fraser River gravel plan Gravel removal from the Fraser River is back in the news.

Gravel Committee, said he was told by B.C. government officials that the Tranmer Bar operation was cancelled because no buyer for the gravel could be found. “How is it that a provincial government, with all its resources ... is not able to pull together the resources to take care of that emergency,” said. “If this is an emergency ... call in the army,” he said. But a spokesman at

Emergency Management B.C. said the reason for the cancellation was a request by federal fisheries for “additional information,” which pushed the project beyond the “window” for in-river work. Without a completed permit, not even the government, could go ahead and remove the gravel despite market conditions, the spokesman told Black Press on a

background basis. Chilliwack MLA John Les, who has long pushed for gravel removal to reduce the risk of flooding, lambasted critics for telling the public that the government aims to prevent flooding by mining gravel from one specific site. He said the idea is to remove gravel from many sites around the river reach from Hope to Abbotsford to “unplug” the river and lower water levels.

Homeless count could show improvement

Jeff Nagel Black Press

Housing advocates are cautiously optimistic a new regional homeless count that happens once every three years may find fewer people with no roof over their heads. More than 700 trained volunteers will roam streets, fields and shelters next Wednesday (March 16) to count the number of homeless across the Lower Mainland in a single 24-hour snapshot. “We’re hopeful that we’ll see a stemming of the tide of homelessness – that we’ll see the numbers leveling off, if not reduced,” said James Pratt, spokesman for the Greater Vancouver Shelter Strategy. Three years ago, the count found 2,660 homeless people across Metro Vancouver – 22 per cent more than in 2005. Pratt said fewer clients have used extreme cold weather spaces this winter, suggesting more street homeless

are taking advantage of extra shelter beds that opened in Vancouver and other parts of the region since the last count in 2008. They include Vancouver’s HEAT (Homeless Emergency Action Team) shelters that opened in advance of the 2010 Olympics, three of which continue to offer 340 year-round spaces after the province extended funding. Vancouver has also added an extra 160 cold/wet weather beds and Pratt said people from elsewhere in the region may have headed to Vancouver to take advantage of the extra shelter spaces there. Also new since 2008 is the 55-bed Gateway of Hope shelter in Langley, with another shelter opening soon in the Tri-Cities. “Vancouver has done a marvellous job of creating shelter beds, but there’s also been more housing provided,” said Alice Sundberg, co-chair of the Metro Vancouver Regional Steering Committee on Homelessness. “In Surrey, a lot of people have been housed.” She credits the province with funding shelters to run 24 hours a day rather than just overnight, adding that makes it much easier for outreach workers

to find and assist those who need help changing their lives. As a result of the extra spaces and reforms, Sundberg said, this year’s count may find a drop in the number of street homeless, but possibly more who are counted as sheltered. “We don’t want to set up expectations that the numbers will be down significantly,” Sundberg cautioned. That’s in part because this year’s survey will for the first time count people of no fixed address in various institutions who weren’t included in the past. Hospitals, jails, detox centres and other transition facilities have agreed to count people there who otherwise have no homes, she said. “People with no fixed address are included as homeless people,” she said. “If they are in a hospital and of no fixed address, we won’t find them if we’re just looking on the street. But they might be out on the street in a few days.” Besides the Olympics and the focus it brought to the homelessness problem, the recession hit hard over the past three years, increasing the numbers of people out of work. Sundberg said 1,400 new supportive housing units coming on stream

in Vancouver in the next couple of years, along with more than 100 in Surrey, should help. “A lot of housing is coming on stream in the next year,” she said. The count begins at midnight March 16 in shelters and starting at 4 a.m. volunteers armed with questionnaires will fan out to search the streets and other areas homeless people are known to frequent. Outreach workers will accompany them to provide assistance. Ron van Wyk, programs director for the Mennonite Central Committee of B.C., said about 150 volunteers will simultaneously count the homeless in the Fraser Valley Regional District, up as far as Boston Bar. He said shelter beds in Abbotsford aren’t as busy as they have been in past years. “We think the new shelter that was opened in Mission certainly helped alleviate the pressure in Abbotsford,” van Wyk said. But he noted some advocates in Chilliwack think homelessness there may have doubled since 2008, adding it’s difficult to predict what the count will find. “It’s always an undercount because you don’t get everybody,” he said.

Opinion

Wavering crime stats a concern By Simone Rolph

to 20 files opened in 2010. And in both communities, auto theft, as well as commercial and residential break and enters, saw little or no positive change. Theft over $5,000 spiked in Hope from seven cases to 15 cases. At a low-end estimate, that figure translates into $75,000 in property impacted by crime in 2010. Add in the theft under $5000 cases, which jumped from 104 in 2009 to 153 files in 2010, and that is a significant financial hit to the community. In the Boston Bar region although there were no files opened for theft over $5,000, 17 theft under $ 5000 police files were opened – a significant jump up from the nine cases in 2009. Any statistician will rightly tell you that the small sample of time and case numbers contained in this report, makes it foolish for anyone to jump to any quick conclusions. As well, targeted policing can cause a jump in one stat, for example a push on grow operations can jump drug files, and one good traffic cop in the Fraser Canyon can spike traffic offences. On the other hand public apathy in reporting, for example, shoplifting and other small offences, can create an apparent drop in crime. But despite police assurances, there still there seems to be a clear message hidden within these statistics… considering the cost of policing this region, we don’t seem to be gaining much ground.

The Hope Standard

In dealing with statistics keep in mind the centuries old saying regarding the three degrees of falsehood: the first is a fib, the second is a lie, and then come statistics. Stats are dangerous territory to entirely base your opinion or your actions upon, especially statistics gained within a small population like ours and over a short time period of two years. Hope RCMP presented their year-end report to Hope council last week, a report that poses many avenues for discussion. Within the year-end statistics released by the Hope RCMP there is good news, not so good news, and there is bad news. According to police, however, crime stats in almost all areas were down. Agreed. There were some significant drops including the number of arsons, the number of robberies, causing a disturbance files, shoplifting files, and motor vehicles incidents… But there were also some troubling statistics that deserve our attention. Weapons offences, as questioned by Hope council, rose steeply in both Hope and the Boston Bar region. In Hope, in 2009, there were 11 weapons offences, that figure jumped in 2010 to 50 weapons offences committed within the community. In the Boston Bar region, in 2009, there were only three weapons offences committed. That figure jumped

VICTORIA – A couple of readers responded indignantly to this column’s recent reference to the NDP “trumpeting distorted statistics” about child poverty. I was referring to the annual ritual that goes on here at the legislature, where an activist coalition named First Call issues its report that damns B.C. for the worst child poverty in Canada. The NDP pounds away for days, crying “shame” and demanding that the B.C. Liberal government produce a plan to eliminate child poverty, with annual goals. The “distorted statistics” I referred to are in a regular survey by Statistics Canada called the Low Income Cutoff, or LICO. This survey uses an arbitrary line, currently around $44,000 a year for a family Tom of four, beneath which people are Fletcher deemed to have “low income.” StatsCan points out in every LICO report that it is a relative measure and not a poverty line, but the activists ignore that. West Vancouver-Capilano B.C. Liberal MLA Ralph Sultan, a former bank economist, has taken this issue on. In November he published a math-heavy discussion paper called Child Poverty in West Vancouver: Fact or Fiction? When I spoke to Sultan last week, he said the weakness of LICO is easy to demonstrate. For one thing, StatsCan uses the same income level across Canada, without regard to the huge variations in cost of housing or other factors.

Time to enrich the poverty debate The LICO ignores provincial services such as dental care for social assistance clients, because it’s not income. Sultan estimates that about 10 per cent of the B.C. budget is now spent on low-income supports, including rent subsidies. Not surprisingly, Sultan found that low income correlates mainly with single mothers, immigrants and aboriginal people on reserves. More surprising is that communities with higher levels of Employment Insurance and welfare recipients are not the communities with the most low-income people. Sultan says this suggests these programs are effective. Another surprise is that aboriginal people do just as well as other people once they are off reserve, despite the relatively low educational achievement we hear so much about. Sultan, who taught business at Harvard University for nine years, cites a recent book by Harvard historian Niall Ferguson called <i>Civilization: The West and the Rest</i>. Ferguson identifies six ingredients in what he calls “the secret sauce of Western civilization” and its economic success. They are competition, modern science, the rule of law and private property rights, modern medicine, the consumer society and the work ethic. Sultan says that list explains the difference between conditions on and off B.C. reserves. Sultan agrees that the political pressure to raise the minimum

wage is irreversible. But like most economists, he says that will reduce the number of low-end jobs. And he is sarcastic about the NDP’s demands for government-imposed solutions: “All we need to do is pass a law and everybody will get richer overnight!” Helping single mothers get back to the workforce is his “personal cause at the moment,” and he says the new full-day kindergarten is a big step in the right direction. Subsidized daycare is another option B.C. has available. “I know in Quebec they have a very generous scheme, which apparently the rest of Canada pays for,” Sultan said. Readers who demand evidence that disputes the First Call finding might start with Sultan’s discussion paper. It’s posted on his website at www.ralphsultanmla.ca under “special studies.” It ends with a quote from another noted social activist, a fellow named Jesus Christ: “The poor shall always be with us.” No one has proven him wrong in the past 2,000 years or so.

Government action needed on treating dementia Editor: Black Press B.C.’s new premier says that families will be the focus for her government. I would like to introduce Premier Clark to 70,000 families in our province who are on the dementia journey. I am writing not only as a person with Alzheimer’s disease, but as someone who was diagnosed in my 50s, urging our new premier to continue the government’s commitment to

improving the lives of people with dementia and their families. Baby boomers are finding themselves as the “sandwich generation”, working full-time jobs, caring for parents who are living with dementia, as well as, supporting children who are still living at home. In some cases, the baby boomer is the one living with dementia, with approximately 10,000 people under the age of

65 currently diagnosed with the disease. There is no cure for dementia and the journey ultimately leads to the need for total care. Family caregivers provide unimaginable amounts of time providing informal or unpaid care. Their journey can sometimes be lonely, isolating and is often frustrating. Support is needed for these families. Inaction will have an enormous

impact not only on B.C. families but on our healthcare system. Support is needed for these families; action to turn the rising tide must happen now. Dementia needs to be on the political agenda and we need all partners working together. Jim Mann, diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2007 and volunteer member the Alzheimer Society of B.C. Board of Directors

Premier led in First Nations health care work Editor: Black Press Re: Campbell exits, his legacy uncertain (B.C. Views, Feb. 24). I appreciated Tom Fletcher’s article regarding the Gordon Campbell legacy. When it comes to the New Relationship, I share in the premier’s disappointment that we could not advance the proposal for recognition and reconciliation legislation. I was a member of the Leadership Council then, and I led the community engagement with First Nations leaders and citizens. I worked hard to air issues, questions, and concerns. Most unfortunately, the lawyers for industry, First Nations, local governments, and others recommended status quo to their clients. This advice, self-serving to

the extreme, benefitted only the lawyers. Recognition and reconciliation legislation failed because governments, industry, and First Nations could not manage irrational fears and their legal counsel. Premier Gordon Campbell provided national leadership and advocacy that resulted in the made-in-B.C. Transformative Change Accord. This tripartite agreement, inked by then-Prime Minister Paul Martin, Campbell, and the Leadership Council of the day (including me) continues today. It is true that the Conservative government rejected the Phil Fontaine-led Kelowna Accord. The Harper government supports the made-in-B.C. Transformative Change Accord. It is this accord that created the space and opportunity that

resulted in the Tripartite First Nations Health Plan. This plan calls for the creation of a First Nations health authority that will take control of decision-making on funding, policy, and services directed to First Nations citizens in B.C. We are working in partnership with Health Canada and the B.C. Ministry of Health Services to reach a legal agreement on moving this work forward. Campbell provided leadership and advocacy that created a significant opportunity for First Nations to take an active role in closing the gap in health status. In this regard, he has reason to be proud of his work to improve the well-being of First Nations citizens in B.C. Grand Chief Doug Kelly Chair, First Nations Health Council

Changes to veterans’ bills can’t be allowed to die Editor: Black Press The government of the day, through the Minister of Veterans Affairs has made several announcements and promises on Bills C-55 (New Veterans Charter), which has received first reading in the House of Commons but has not progressed to the Committee level. Similar announcements and promises have been made on Bill-480 by the Minister of Finance for which no legislation has yet been tabled. As your readers know, the tabling and passage of these bills with Royal Assent will not be possible should the government decide to call an election. The Royal Canadian Legion has written to both ministers on the matters of legislative procedure and has received assurances that these matters are being looked into. These bills, however, may die on the order paper if an election is called and leave Canada’s disabled veterans, their families and The Royal Canadian Legion without the legislation they all need. The Royal Canadian Legion writes this letter because we care. Patricia Varga Dominion President The Royal Canadian Legion

Day of Prayer inspires carver To commemorate the National Day of Prayer, Friday, March 4, Hope resident Chris Vine, was inspired to carve a cross out of the stump from an aging cherry tree that once lined the walkway of the Hope United Church. This is Vine’s first attempt at such a carving. The smiles and praises for his efforts were a welcomed reward, as Hope’s newest carving greeted the congregation as they entered the church on Sunday morning. DAGMAR LUCAK PHOTO

Looking for Spring Break ideas? By Inge Wilson Special Contributor

The hot tub and pool are quietly awaiting the influx of kids when schools get out for Spring Break this Friday. FILE PHOTO

This Friday, our area schools will ring their end of the day bells and students will celebrate the start of a sixteen day holiday – their annual ‘Spring Break’, which is a full week longer than in previous years! While the students are thrilled about their coming days of freedom, many parents will no doubt be struggling with ideas on how to entertain them ...as well as the friends and relatives that may choose this opportunity to visit here in Hope. The staff at the Hope Visitor Centre have compiled the following list of ideas for local (and near local) entertainment choices. Details about each can be obtained by contacting the Visitor Centre. If you prefer self-directed activities there are a wide variety of choices to consider. The Hope Recreation Complex is a great place to play indoors as the Dan Sharrers Aquatic Centre has two swimming pools, hot tub, steam room and sauna while the adjacent Hope Arena offers public skating plus

casual hockey and parent and tot skates. The gym and cardio room offer treadmills, elliptical trainers, several bikes, free weights and more. Check their schedule for times and rates. Other indoor activities include 5 pin bowling and racquetball at Sunshine Lanes in Hope as well as 5 pin bowling at Canyon Lanes in Boston Bar. First run movies can be viewed at the Hope Cinema on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Tuesday evenings at 7:30 p.m. In the great outdoors there is still plenty of snow on our local mountains, so winter play at Manning Park Resort just east of Hope will also be a popular choice during Spring Break. You can choose from cross-country skiing, downhill skiing, snowboarding or snowshoeing activities. The toboggan hill and Polar Coaster are also popular choices for families. Their annual Springfest weekend takes place on March 19 and 20 – so be sure to check out the fun at the 26th annual Streak the Streak giant slalom race; Head to Head GS Race; King of the Hill Poker Run; Dummy Downhill Race and Treasure Hunt. See www.

manningpark.com for details. This is also the best time of the year to try gold panning and rock hounding on the exposed Fraser River sand and gravel bars. Access is best from along Wardle Street in Hope or the waterfront in Yale. For those eager to start the hiking season there are a limited number of low elevation walking trails ready to explore. The TransCanada Trail section along Thacker Marsh that starts from Union Bar Rd at Sucker Creek is lovely as is the Rotary Nature Trail along the Coquihalla River starting from Wardle Street. Please note that the popular Othello-Quintette Tunnels walk through the Coquihalla Canyon Provincial Park is not scheduled to officially open until sometime in April but you can still walk the old railway grade from the end of Kettle Valley Road to the start of the tunnels. For those wanting more of a challenge, a special opportunity for winter adventure is being offered on Saturday, March 12, as an advanced snowshoe trip at the Coquihalla Summit is scheduled with the Hope Mountain Centre for Outdoor Learning. This challenging

climb toward ‘The Needle’ will offer excellent mountain views of the Coquihalla Summit area. See www. hopemountain.org for costs, pre-registration requirements and other details.

They include a Saturday, March 12, ‘Spring Break Pool Party’ at the Dan Sharrer’s Aquatic Centre from 6 to 8 p.m. featuring games, prizes, movies and fun for everyone; a March 12 and 13 Red Cross Standard First Aid with CPR-C and AED Course from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. both days (Please note that you must pre-register for this course); a Friday, March 18, ‘Dive-In Movie Night’ at the Dan Sharrer’s Aquatic Centre from 6 to 8 p.m.; a Saturday, March 19 ‘Challenge Night’ at the Dan Sharrers Aquatic Centre from 6 to 8 p.m. with friendly competitive races, basketball shots and diving skill tests; a Sunday, March 20, ‘First Day of Spring’ event to celebrate Spring trivia at the Hope Rec Centre where the 1st fifty people to correctly answer a skill...

Comfortable and classy changes coming soon Bibliotheca

I’m putting on my fortune-teller hat and predicting Big Changes at the library in the near future. But before I go any f u r t h e r, I’d like to give a big shout-out to our Fabulous Deb Friends of Ireland the Hope Library for all their hard work at this year’s annual book sale. These dedicated volunteers go above and

beyond, hefting heavy boxes, organizing, spending hours to make this event the success that it is. Funds that are raised at the annual book sale are used for additional local programming and the extras, like the television and the gaming console purchased last year by our Friends group. Despite the uncooperative weather, this year’s book sale was again a big winner. So thank you everyone! So what’s with the Big Changes? Anyone who’s been here over the last

few weeks will no doubt have noticed our classy, yet comfy, new furniture in the adult seating area. And in the next few weeks we will have blinds on the south-facing windows. And, in April, new seating in the children’s fiction area! In the greater library picture, our Information Technology people have been working hard on some interesting improvements to the FVRL’s website – to be revealed all in good time. I’ve had a sneak preview and all I can say is that I’m super-excited about the

changes. Also new: some of you might have seen me sporting my recently acquired e-reader lately. And I really like the darn thing. What’s not to like? Hundreds of books in a pocket-book size, light-weight, portable device with thousands of titles available for loan from BC’s Library to Go (just head to our website) - for free! I doubt books will be going out of style anytime soon though. I have a theory. As long as books are associated with the feeling of comfort and warmth

that comes from being read to as a child, books will continue to be loved and read. I suspect the demise of books is generations away. At least. Books (or no books) theories aside, libraries will be here to stay because we’re actually not just about books, we’re about information. And providing and improving access to information is what we do and it’s what we’ve always done. Here’s just one recent innovation – our SMRT search, which integrates the library’s catalogue with

Formidable women

Hereafter

HBO casts Winslet in iconic role

FORMIDABLE WOMEN: Thanks to HBO and a certain silver-screen star of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Titanicâ&#x20AC;? proportions, the story of Mildred Pierce will go on. The cabler is set to debut the fivepart miniseries â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mildred Pierceâ&#x20AC;? later this month, and has landed actress Kate Winslet for the title role. Based on the classic 1941 novel by James M. Cain, the story follows an independent, newly divorced woman who struggles to redefine her life and keep her family together during the Great Depression. The episodes, which begin with a two-part premiere on Sunday, March 27, will also star Guy Pearce (2010â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Speechâ&#x20AC;?), Evan Rachel Wood (â&#x20AC;&#x153;True Bloodâ&#x20AC;?), James LeGros (â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mercyâ&#x20AC;?), Brian F. Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Byrne (â&#x20AC;&#x153;FlashForwardâ&#x20AC;?) and Melissa Leo (2010â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Fighterâ&#x20AC;?). Winsletâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s star power has only grown since the late â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;90s, when her first two big films, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sense and Sensibilityâ&#x20AC;? (1995) and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Titanicâ&#x20AC;? (1997), made her a household name. Since then, she has turned in critically acclaimed performances in â&#x20AC;&#x153;Quillsâ&#x20AC;? (2000), â&#x20AC;&#x153;Irisâ&#x20AC;? (2001), â&#x20AC;&#x153;Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mindâ&#x20AC;? (2004), â&#x20AC;&#x153;Finding Neverlandâ&#x20AC;? (2004), â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Readerâ&#x20AC;? (2008) and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Revolutionary Roadâ&#x20AC;? (2008), earning multiple awards and nominations along the way. This new HBO project will mark her first TV appearance since the early â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;90s, before she became a film star. The miniseries is being directed by Todd Haynes (2007â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m Not Thereâ&#x20AC;?), who also co-wrote the teleplay with Jon Raymond. The last time Cainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tale was adapted for the screen was in 1945 for the Michael Curtiz-directed film of the same name. It featured Joan Crawford as the title character, and her performance earned her the best actress Oscar. DAMONâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S GOOD WILL: As tabloid articles seem to suggest, the people

destined to save the world are celebrities. George Clooney helped promote peaceful elections in Sudan, John Travolta flew his plane to Haiti after the earthquake to lend a hand, and super-couple Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are involved in so many causes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to keep track. Now, another actor is hoping to use his fame to promote a forwardthinking cause. Matt Damon will be the face of a new episode in PBSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s award-winning series â&#x20AC;&#x153;Journey to Planet Earthâ&#x20AC;? when he hosts â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plan B: Mobilizing to Save Civilization.â&#x20AC;? The 90-minute documentary, which is the 12th episode in the series, will premiere on the public broadcaster on Wednesday, March 30. Based on the book by environmentalist Lester Brown, the episode will feature Brown, Nobel Laureate Paul Krugman, Pulitzer Prize winner Thomas Friedman and former politician Bruce Babbitt. They will lend their thoughts on the continuing struggle to combat global warming. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Plan Bâ&#x20AC;? will also examine a new industry devoted to renewable resources. It proposes a plan to not only stabilize global climate and reverse damage to natural resources, but also to eradicate poverty and stabilize the human population. Taking lessons from ancient civilizations and modern environmental research, the documentary hopes to change the perspectives of politicians, economists and the general public to reorganize the economy and our everyday lives in order to preserve the planet for the future. Damon is already known for his philanthropic work with such organizations as the ONE Campaign, Not On Our Watch, Tonic Mailstopper, H2O Africa Foundation and Water.org.

Kate Winslet will star in HBOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mildred Pierceâ&#x20AC;? miniseries

In the 1980s, boxer (Irish) Micky Ward was supported and trained by his loyal half-brother Dicky, who was forced to give up his own boxing career because of drugs and gambling. Eventually, Micky won the WBU Intercontinental Lightweight title as well as the Light Welterweight title. Director: David O. Russell. Stars: Christian Bale, Mark Wahlberg, Amy Adams, Melissa Leo. 2010, 115 mins., drama.  TUE. MAR.15

Carlos: The Jackal Carlos is a central figure in the history of international terrorism in the 1970s and 1980s, from pro-Palestinian activism to the Japanese Red Army. He was at once both a figure of the extreme left and an opportunistic mercenary in the pay of powerful Middle Eastern secret services. He formed his own organization, based it behind the Iron Curtain and was active during the final years of the Cold War. This film is the story of a revolutionary internationalist, both manipulator and manipulated, carried along by the currents of contemporary history and his own folly. We follow him to the end of his road, relegated to Sudan where the Islamic dictatorship, after having protected him, handed him over to French authorities. Director: Olivier Assayas. Stars: Edgar Ramirez, Fadi Abi Samra, Ahmad Kaabour, Juana Acosta, Martha Higareda. 2010, 330 mins., drama.

Punching with Pedro By Barry Stewart The Hope Standard

His nose may have received a few more blows than a box of tissues — but you get the impression that this guy could make an depression anywhere on your body if he needed to. The third degree black belt kickboxer is prepared for the worst... but hopes it will never come. “If properly trained, a kickboxer doesn’t go looking for trouble,” says 58-year-old Pedro Barbosa, who has been teaching kickboxing at the arena mezzanine since January. Barbosa hails from Ponta Delgada, in the Azores, a group of nine islands west of Portugal in the middle of the North Atlantic. He moved to B.C. in 1969 but has been back to the Azores many times, to establish four kickboxing schools and to attend yearly kickboxing championships, as an honoured guest. Barbosa and his wife, Sheila Sandberg-Barbosa moved to Hope last year. Long-time Hope residents may recognize the Sandberg name. Sheila grew up in Hope and is now working locally as a hairdresser. Soon after arriving in town, Barbosa came across a scene where his training gave him the confidence to intervene in a mugging. “It was late at night, during Brigade Days,” recalls Barbosa. “Four thugs had a woman and two guys on the ground, kicking them. I chased them but they got away. The police tracked them down. They were from Chilliwack and the case is in the courts now. “It’s good to have the skills, to defend a friend or your family,” contends Barbosa. “Martial arts give you self-esteem and discipline. That’s what they are all about.” Barbosa got his start in self-defence before he emigrated — but when he moved to Brampton Ontario,

he got involved in kickboxing. In 1974, he went with his Sensei, Mr. Frank Lee, for eight months of training in Thailand. While there, he also trained in Mo Tai, which stresses the use of knees and elbows. On his return, Barbosa was certified as a third degree black belt instructor.

“I’m very disciplined in my school,” says Barbosa. “I teach my students that they have to respect others, so that they will be respected. “I opened a school in the Azores for 17 years,” he recalled. “I’d have the students from after school until 7:00 at night. In the

beginning, they were very badly behaved. But now, they are accountants, doctors and lawyers.” In Hope, Barbosa has attracted up to 15 students per session, with ages ranging from 14 to 70. He’s hoping those numbers will be maintained or grow when the classes move

to the United Church Hall on March 19th. The one-hour sessions begin with a half hour of conditioning and cardio. “We do push-ups, sit-ups, jumps and spins,” says Barbosa. “If people want to just come for that part, that’s fine too.” From there, the students work on punching and kicking technique. “If I have someone who’s more advanced, I teach the next level and then they come and help teach the others.” For softening the practice strikes, Barbosa has hand and foot pads — plus a big pad, much like the ones they use in football training. “We use the boxing gloves after they have learned to use the left and right hand,” explains Barbosa. “That takes about three months.” The belt program is an option for those who are interested. “After perhaps six months, they can try light sparring, with padded helmet, shin and foot pads, padding for the private parts and a mouth guard. They are not required to take part in this, just if they want to. “We have one man coming out, Mr. Lee, who is 65 years old. He’s retired from the army and he was trained in judo, so I sometimes give him a half hour to teach judo to the others,” says Barbosa. “He gets kids in holds and they can’t get away. “They just love it, though. They’re very curious, so they ask him to try it again so they can get some ideas on how to get free.” Once the classes move to the United Church Hall, they’ll run from 6:45-7:45 on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and 11:00 till noon on Saturdays. Monthly fees will be $45.00, says Barbosa. Sweat pants or shorts and a t-shirt are the recommended attire. To reach the instructor, call 604-860-0411.
