Hi, my name is Tillman the Cat and I am a regular domestic house cat. Nothing fancy, although I do look a bit like an ocelot. I am very affectionate to almost everyone, and especially love my parents and my uncle Tim. I have lots of fun playing, but my favourite thing is to play in the bath tub. There are lots of toys at my house, but my mom’s Q-tips are something I love to take and hide. I like to drop them down the tub drain and it makes my mom cross! Another thing I absolutely love is when my dad grows his beard. He only has it in the fall, so I take advantage of rubbing my furry little face all over his! I make quite a fool of myself, but I don’t care. I’m glad to be a source of happiness for my family. They love me, and I love them. It’s a cat’s life. Now where is the food? ~ Barb & Randy

Local teachers seeking leverage in work dispute CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

The B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) is seeking approval for a province-wide strike to escalate job action to a full withdrawal of services. In Grand Forks, teachers worked bell-to-bell on Monday, where teachers arrived at school five minutes early and left five minutes after school. During lunchtime, teachers met in staff rooms to discuss what was going on and allowed them the opportunity to ask questions. After school, teachers held a peaceful demonstration outside of A&W and Flexus gym. “We’re not going to be waving scabbards,” stated Norm Sabourin, president of the Boundary District Teachers’ Association. “We just want to be out there and be seen.” According to Sabourin, the BCTF will be meeting on Tuesday and Wednesday to decide whether there will be a province-wide strike vote. “Like with our phase one, the plan was to put pressure on the employer, the government, to bargain with us,” explained Sabourin. “The plan here is to put pressure on BCPSEA (B.C. Public School Employers’ Association) and the government to bargain. The BCTF pushed hard for a mediated settlement recently and upon hearing of our upcoming strike vote, they reluctantly agreed to go into mediation.” Sabourin stated the BCTF would like to see more co-operation with the government. “We’re hoping for a strong strike vote in favour of escalating (job action) and then not have to use it,” he said. “We’re hoping we can use it for leverage to help come to an agreement. We don’t want to be legislated.”

Local teachers, seen here demonstrating along Central Avenue on Monday, were considering whether or not to hold a province-wide strike vote.


Superintendent of Schools for School District 51 Michael Strukoff stated, “There seems to be a pattern between the disputes between BCTF and the government. In our particular case, I don’t foresee anything happening this week and then there is two weeks until we’re on spring break.” Strukoff pointed out the outcome is still uncertain about whether or not services will be withdrawn. “I truly hope both parties find some alternatives and allow the kids to continue with school and things return to normal by the end of spring break,” he concluded. The ballot question teachers will be asked is: Are you in favour of escalating job action to a full withdrawal of services? The decision was not available by press time.

Ministry gives $200,000 in financial aid to Grand Forks’ Boundary Hospital Gazette Reporter

Grand Forks’ Boundary Hospital is one of 36 rural communities to receive financial assistance of up to $200,000 from the Ministry of Health. In July 2011, the province announced that $10 million would be available for rural communities across British Columbia. Communities can receive up to $200,000 a year for rural, fee-for-service physicians who will ensure reliable public access to emergency services. According to a press release, “The funding can be used to hire additional physicians, incentives for working on weekends, holidays or night shifts and health authority-approved equipment purchases.” David Hurford, director of media relations and member services for BC Care Providers Association (BCCPA), told The Gazette, “The funding will definitely help. Certainly the funding will help seniors get assistance more quickly.” BCCPA focuses on senior and health care in rural communities. “(The funding) recognizes that rural communities have some particular challenges with regards to health care,” Hurford said. “A lot of people talk about two-tier health care as private-pay versus public, but I think the real two-tier health care is rural versus urban. “There are a lot of inequities in rural communities and I think the federal funding will be a step in the right direction to help close the gap.”

There was a chimney fire on the 2000 block Almond Gardens Road East in Grand Forks on Feb. 22 around 5 p.m. The fire department arrived on the scene and put it out in short order. According to Acting Fire Chief Dale Heriot, 13 personnel were involved and three trucks. “We were there for about an hour,” explained Heriot, adding that people should clean their chimneys regularly.

The roof is on fire

Physicians and the regional health authority will develop community-specific plans once funding is received. Dr. Robert Sebastian, a general practitioner at Boundary Hospital, who helped with Grand Forks’ proposal, stated, “(The funding) is mainly focused on the recruitment and retention of new doctors.” The funds are also aimed at maintaining medical emergency services and to keep it open 24/7, Sebastian pointed out. “We’re looking for full-service general practitioners, in other words, doctors that will do everything, including office and special skills and work the emergency ward,” he explained. “We’re hoping it will attract new and younger physicians and to keep our manpower at sustainable hours.” According to Sebastian, the funding started because, though it hasn’t been an issue in Grand Forks, there have been emergency departments that have been closed or the hours were curtailed. “Princeton, Creston, Clearwater and Nakusp are four communities that come to mind right away; they’re just not able to fully staff the emergency department,” Sebastian said. “Funding is always an issue in small towns.” There are 52 communities that are eligible to apply. Trail’s Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital and Oliver/Osoyoos’ South Okanagan General Hospital are two other communities that have received funding.

Horse shot in chest A horse appeared to be shot on a rural property near Almond Gardens Road and Spraggett Road area on Feb. 26 at 12:59 p.m. The Arabian-cross horse was 10 to 11 years old, and appeared to be shot in the chest/neck area. “Unfortunately, the owner had to put the animal down,” stated Grand Forks RCMP Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison. RCMP made an attempt to locate the bullet but was unable to find it. “We are seeking public assistance on information in regards to incident,” added Harrison. “If anyone has any information, they are encouraged to contact Grand Forks RCMP or phone Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).” Crime Stopper callers do not have to reveal their identities and

can remain anonymous. Gas siphoned from truck A report was filed on Feb. 18 about gas siphoned from a GMC Sierra pickup parked on Donaldson Drive. Approximately $20 worth of gas was taken, and there was also damage to the lock of the gas cap. “With the price of gas going up, we’re likely to see more of it,” stated Harrison. Break and enter On Feb. 25, a break and enter was reported on Donaldson Drive at 8:05 p.m. RCMP believe the theft occurred overnight between Feb. 23 at 5 p.m. and Feb. 25 at 8 a.m. Heated tile flooring and light fixtures were taken from the store. “We believe there may have been a pickup truck with Dually tires, because there were tires tracks left behind in the snow,” Harrison said. “It may or may not be involved.”

Suicide not an option for bullying victims If you happen to see elementary and high school students wearing pink today (Wednesday, Feb. 29) it is because they and others are taking a stand against bullying. Feb. 29 is Pink Shirt Day – a movement that started when a student in Nova Scotia had been bullied for wearing pink and other students mobilized and wore pink in response. Bullying has no place anywhere – school and otherwise – and much has been said about how some bullies have low self-esteem and are merely trying to feel good about themselves or how some are acting out of jealousy. If you are a student being bullied, as hard as it may be to do, talk to someone about it. You might feel shame at first but eventually you probably will feel a great sense of relief – it’s not good to keep things bottled up. Above all things, never consider suicide as a number of other bullying victims have – if you are being bullied for being “weak,” taking your own life will only prove the bully or bullies right. If anything, realize that the bullies have issues of their own and let it thicken your skin so to speak – realize that while words can hurt, being able to brush aside insults will be an asset as you mature. You might be feeling despair but know that you can get through this and go on to better things. Actor Robert Pattinson of Twilight movie trilogy was bullied as a child and so was the man often referred to as the Leader of the Free World, U.S. President Barack Obama – both are doing pretty well for themselves. Singer Christina Aguilera had her tires slashed after winning singing contests, reportedly because people resented her vocal talent, but she just soldiered on pursuing her dream. Prince Harry of Wales was bullied for having red hair, or being “ginger” as it is called. Comedian Chris Rock was said to be the only African-American kid at school and was the victim of physical and racial abuse but has turned that negative energy into his brand of biting standup comedy. Learn to ignore what people say and realize your self-worth – what doesn’t kill you will make you stronger.

Question of the Week from Will you be wearing pink on Wednesday, Feb. 29 to show that you’re against bullying?

YES 61%

Sticks and stones break more than bones Today (Feb. 29) marks Pink Shirt Day, a day that focuses on anti-bullying and unity. Whoever stated, “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me” didn’t live in a world where technology’s reach extended past the schoolyard. The truth is, words hurt. Disparaging comments can be thoughtlessly cruel over the Internet and social media but it doesn’t have to be. I wrote this a while back for a class about racism and stereotypes. It applied then, and it applies now: You see the upturned noses, turned heads and chins raised. You notice how there’s an extra distance between you and the passing stranger, even when the sidewalk barely fits two. You can feel the person tucking their coats closer, lifting their purses higher, pretending to be looking elsewhere, just not to

❚ A Chin Up


look at you. Eyes drift up and down, giving you the once over, then passing you by as if you’re insignificant, as if you’re nothing. Hostility is the wall you look at, when glancing at another. It’s a mask on their faces that scrunches up and contorts, from human to monster. You ask a question and they reply in an antagonistic politeness. You’d have preferred blunt rudeness, than faked kindness. Your heart clenches, your breathing deepens, your strides become faster. Your lips tighten, fists clench

and body rigid. Your back is straight and shoulders held taut, your feet planted. You want to ask them why they judge, ask them why they look on with disdain, and wonder why it hurts. You look them in the eye and stare blankly, watch as their eyes harden, watch as they try not to step back – when it’s obvious that they want to. You try not to flinch, as cold words strike back; a constant barrage of stereotypical slangs and racist remarks. Your head is held high as you walk forward. What else can you do but put up a mask of your own? …To those who have bullied, switch spots for a second and think about how it would feel if that person was you. To those who have been bullied, chin up; it gets better – not immediately, but it will get better.

A toast to the Toad Editor: I would like to share some feelings about the recent play done by Rivers’ Edge Theatre, Toad of Toad Hall Hall.. This is an offshoot of Wind in the Willows and is a fantasy/ comedy. Being a cellist, I was asked to play alongside my friend Lorraine to give the music some bass notes. I was hesitant at first, but after attending some early rehearsals, realized that it was a very worthwhile project. This is not an easy play to put on – many scene changes, much dialogue – but this group did a wonderful job and I loved every moment of it. Gary Smith, a city councillor and realtor, played the Toad and may I say, it was done with such flair and fun. He put himself into this role with every ounce of his energy and his costumes were so colourful, kudos to his tailor. Chris Moslin, a former councillor, played the Badger, Jennifer Burrows the Mole and Lee Anne Lawrence the Rat, all doing a splendid job in their respective roles. Behind the scenes the work was incredible, many children had to be made up and dressed as woodland creatures; Gary had to be painted to look like a toad so I watched with reverence as all this took place nightly. There was much camaraderie and fun and I miss it now that it is over. Mary Ann Westaway was the director and she excelled in that role. Eleanor Martens did the producing and Mike Elliot was stage director. I have so little criticism of this production, this is community amateur theatre and to be able to pull this off is nothing short of a miracle. They had been rehearsing since last November so I can imagine how fatigued they will all be now but happy I am sure. I was so delighted to be part of this wonderful production, kudos to all concerned, keep up the great work people! To all the others who helped with this play, well done, you are too many to mention here but you know who you are! Liz Martin, Grand Forks


A not so fine wine Editor: Re: 2011 – A federal year in review part I (Feb. 22 issue of the Grand Forks Gazette) Gazette) I’m shocked that Alex Atamanenko would unconditionally support Dan Albas’ Private

Member’s Bill to allow citizens to carry wine across inter-provincial borders. He should pull back before he gets burned. Here’s why: No one would argue that wine is more important than food. Right? And yet it’s easier right now to import meat from the United States than from a neighbouring province. This hurts the local, organic, natural and free-range meat market immeasurably. In fact, here in B.C., the provincial Liberals managed to shut down most small-to-medium sized abattoirs (slaughter facilities), thereby cutting consumers off from their traditional, local supplies of meat. Federal restrictions on interprovincial trade don’t just apply to meat; they apply to almost all locally-processed food items. But Albas wants to only free things up on wine? And a New Democrat who has a strong reputation of standing up for the little guy within the Canadian agricultural and food sector supports him unconditionally? Baffling! Yes, we should get rid of Canada’s arcane liquor laws but not before we free up trade on food. Atamanenko should urge Conservatives like Albas to see the full picture instead of pandering to a select group of wealthy wine makers. C’mon Alex, you’re better than that! Mischa Popoff, Osoyoos, B.C.


City of Grand Forks’ snow clearing sub-par Editor: If my tax dollars are paying for snow removal, I want a refund! I am appalled at the conditions of the snow removal. I was in town the other day and saw flooding all over town, snow piled up at the curbs and all handicapped parking spots full of piled snow from previous clearing. I was wondering if the crews were on strike then saw someone trying to plow on the side street. Apparently he did not know that he must put the blades down to work. What is happening? Did the city run out of money? If so, I am sure they had enough money to pay themselves. I really feel we should get a refund on our tax dollars. Whew! Now I feel better. I am sure I am not the only one in Grand Forks that has wondered about this. Carol Storrings, Grand Forks


Pharmacist wage cuts will have an impact Editor: Recently, the Minister of Health Mike de Jong stated that a 14 per cent wage reduction of hospital pharmacists (effective April 1) will not impact patient care in the province. He goes on to suggest recruitment issues (reason for 14 per cent wage adjustment in 2006) for clinical pharmacists are no longer present in B.C. This is slightly true for only one jurisdiction, Vancouver. Everywhere else in the province it is very difficult to hire highly skilled clinical pharmacists. The Vancouver Island Health Authority (VIHA) has a 13 per cent vacancy rate that is proving very difficult to reduce. A quick check of wage/benefit/ holiday differences between hospitals and retail pharmacists will make it clear how difficult it is to hire clinical pharmacists in this province. Perhaps the minister needs to think of it this way. At present the majority of pharmacists working in B.C. hospitals have extensive experience and are at the top of their pay scale. Does the minister actually want us to believe a wage discrepancy of 14 per cent (most of the province outside Vancouver) between hospitals and retail pharmacies will not result in significant resignations of pharmacists from B.C. hospitals? If the wage reduction goes through in April what are the odds those senior pharmacists at or near retirement age will accept a 14 per cent hit to their pensions? It is very clear to most people that we should be doing everything possible to maintain the highly skilled pharmacists in B.C. hospitals. They save lives and money for the health care system. A huge wage reduction for clinical pharmacists will most certainly work against this goal. The public deserves better. Robert Wager Nanaimo BC

We have hosted numerous public meetings, small gatherings, discussion through email and the Water Front Property Owners Society. A few facts first: 1. This idea was NOT presented by the Christina Lake Stewardship Society, it was initiated by the APC Because at that time the province was presenting a Provincial Riparian Regulation that was not at all community friendly 2. This idea was NOT driven by David Durand so he and his green house could make more money. David is the chair of the advisory planning commission (APC) and he was working on this, along with your regional director so that we could share information and gauge public interest. 3. Why were we so interested in the opinion of the lake shore owners? Because they are the ones that would need to buy into this act. If they didn’t, we would be introducing something that would not be respected or adhered to. 4. What feedback did we ultimately get? An overwhelming no. Some are very interested in the information however; they would rather be part of an education program, whereby property owners voluntarily provided riparian protection on their property. And some just plain were not interested at all. 5. What are our next steps? We will abandon the Riparian Act Regulation, however we will be happy to work with the Lake Shore Property Owners Society to provide education. We will also be asking for pictures from those who did protect the riparian area of their property and we will be featuring those in the Christina Lake News on a regular basis as kudos to those property owners, and as an example to those who are interested in the protection of their lake shore. 6. Many of the comments around the health of the lake pointed to septic systems that have not been upgraded. Once again, I have had numerous dialogues with the province on this provincial issue. Please if you think this is a problem in your area contact: Mike Sokal, environmental water quality at mike.sokal@ Health and Recreational Water Quality’s Cheryle Unger can be contacted at Lisa Tedesco is a good start point for forwarding concerns pertaining to Ministry of Environment, Ministry of Lands Forest and Natural Resources and Department of Fisheries and water quality concerns can be sent to Also feel free to suggest that these people use the dye tablets available from the Christina Lake Stewardship to test their system. – Grace McGregor is Area C director for the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary

RDKB Area D looking to increase library service funding CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) Area D held its annual town meeting to discuss this year’s proposed budget, the five-year financial plan and how the RDKB operates. Held on Feb. 27 at the Seniors’ Centre at City Park, residents of Area D (rural Grand Forks) and interested parties were in attendance. Introduced by Area D Director Irene Perepolkin, the town hall meeting was led by John MacLean, RDKB chief administrative officer. The current budget figures are only proposed and will be determined at the end of March. For recreation program services, the 2011 actual budget used was $365,266 with $365,266 spent. The 2012 budget is targeted at $432,674. The Boundary Museum service has been kept at a steady $30,000, while the Grand Forks Arena may see an increase in its budget from $540,788 to $647,890. The Grand Forks curling rink may also see a slight increase in funds from $35,529 to $40,869, as might the Boundary’s animal control from $110,862 to $117,874. On the other hand, the Grand Forks Aquatic Center may see a decrease in funding from $740,611 to $718,902. Mosquito control for Area D and Grand Forks might go from $159,402 to $100,768. In terms of noxious weed control in Areas D and E, the budget may decrease from $199,385 to $191,616. The regional library service may also see an increase in funding, from $293,233 in 2011 to $355,331 in 2012. In terms of the Boundary area’s transit service, there is expected to be an increase in funds from $57,544 to $70,020. In 2011, Area D’s grant-in-aid spent $42,781 to-

wards groups and organizations. The projected budget for 2012 is $53,140. In the five-year finance plan, MacLean noted the most important year is the first year because the remaining four are likely to change as the year progresses. If there is a deficit in a service, for instance, the first thing that must be done the following year is to pay back the deficit, he stated. If there is a surplus, there are several options. “The default position is that it goes into the following year’s revenue. So if we had a $10,000 surplus in 2011, we put $10,000 in 2012 as revenue and it reduces taxation,” explained MacLean. “Or, alternatively, the board has the opportunity to take those monies and put it into a reserve.” This year the animal control contract with Good Governance Solutions will be taken into consideration as the contract is soon to expire. The RDKB will also be rewriting the animal control bylaw, which is considered dated, to include different aspects like barking. “The primary concern was barking, and we are looking into it,” stated MacLean. The City of Grand Forks is covered under the RDKB bylaw, though there were complaints to have a separate bylaw for the city. Residents also brought up issues with local trails and its maintenance. Currently, projects that the RDKB is working on include the Woodstove Exchange Program, the Kettle/ Granby River Study, Food Scrap Recycling Program, branding, signage (which is found along the highway indicating what region you are in) and the regional chamber. Area C’s meeting is scheduled for Christina Lake tonight, Feb. 29, at the community hall at 6:30 p.m.

Boundary hunters not happy with gov’t deer management CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

Boundary-area hunters are dissatisfied with provincial management of the local deer herd. Local hunters gathered at the Senior’s Centre at City Park on Feb. 23 to discuss concerns about the dwindling populations and though many expressed their own opinions about why the deer are disappearing, they all agreed that the B.C. government was doing a poor job at managing the deer population. Once considered one of the best mule and whitetail deer areas in the province by BC Wildlife, the Boundary region has seen a decline in deer numbers. “We’re hoping to get a group reaction and some awareness about the situation,” stated Barry Brandow Sr. who organized the meeting. “If you’ve been living here any length of time, you’ll know that it’s not true that we have a large number of deer.” Brandow Sr. pointed out that Washington State had nine days of open rifle for mule deer. “We have two months,” he said. “What it comes down to is, we’re trying to keep the mule deer and whitetail deer alive. Every year the highway kill as a percentage gets higher.” On a two-week hunting trip, local Darwin Benson saw four mule deer. “No elk, no whitetails, but we’re all wondering what is the cause of it,” exclaimed Benson. “In this area, the whitetail deer just aren’t here. The mule deer, maybe if you go up high enough you’ll see some. I don’t know what to say – do we shut this area down for a year or two and not hunt at all? I don’t think that’s the right answer, but we do need to get the government to get in on it.” A majority of the hunters who attended the meeting agreed that the number of deer population is alarmingly low and that new management changes must be done. The hunters are currently gathering signatures for a petition before presenting it to the government. Brian Hancock, president of the Grand Forks Wildlife Association, pointed out no matter the reason, everyone was here at the meeting for the deer. “I think hunting is definitely a factor, I think road access is a factor, I think forest in-growth, forest encroachment, fires, habitat, vehicular collisions – I wrote down about 30 issues, but we’re all here for the same reason,” he said. “The Ministry and BC Wildlife Federation are convinced that as long as your buck and doe ratios are healthy, you can keep hunting during open season. So when they do the count, basically what they’re saying is, as long as there are 100 does and you have more than 20 bucks, that’s a healthy population. If you have 20 does left and five bucks, you can still have an

open season. Is that the only problem, I don’t think so, but it’s a part of it.” In a 1968 Wildlife Management Publication, “The Boundary Deer Herd” by Okanagan and Boundary Region wildlife biologist D. J. Spalding, he wrote, “There is one fact that is virtually incontrovertible; the relative few hunters during the early decades of this century were more successful in bagging large adult buck deer.” Nearly 40 years later, Brandow Sr. agreed. “Ten years ago you could get one of the biggest bucks you could in this valley, now you get little buggers,” he recalled. “You will not find a white tail buck season as we have on this province, within any jurisdiction on the continent with our winters, our highways and our predators.” The current hunting season is 111 days long for whitetail deer, depending on whether one hunts with a bow, rifle or shotgun. The season begins in September. In a recent deer head count, Barry Brandow Jr., a guide outfitter in the region, attended the count with ministry officials. “Instead of just counting the Gilpin, they wanted to add the North Fork area,” he said. “The biologist at the time hoped to count 300 to 400 deer.” After a three-hour helicopter flight and low fuel, Brandow Jr. stated they cancelled the trip. The total deer count was 29.

Reminiscences of by Barb Bleiler

As I sit and gaze out Laura Lodder’s front window, I am taken by the serenity of the surrounding countryside that is really a potato field under snow. As I ask questions about her life and family, Lodder’s sparkling blue eyes begin to twinkle as she walks me down memory lane, and starts to tell me about Grand Forks when she was a child growing up here, steeped with her family’s history. The oldest daughter of parents who emigrated from Italy, Lodder was born in Trail, to Andrea and Marianna D’Andrea. The family was part of the large Italian community that had flourished, and they spent the early part of her childhood there until relocating to Grand Forks to farm. Andrea D’Andrea, Laura’s father, had worked in the Trail smelter, and decided to stop working at the smelter for health reasons and relocated his family to Grand Forks in the hopes of a healthier and more prosperous life. The way to get from Trail to Grand Forks at that time was by driving over the Santa Rosa Summit or by train. Her family purchased the old Wiley A. Glover property in 1944 up North Fork Road, and had milk cows, which they used to make cheese and butter. Later, milk was shipped by train to Trail to United Dairies. There was so much hard, physical work to get a farm to a productive state and Lodder says the farm became as pretty as a storybook with her father’s patient attention until his passing. Lodder comes from a long line of farmers and has much to share about our city and the way things were way back when. Over the years, Lodder’s family has earned many accolades and awards, but one is still prominently displayed in the family kitchen where she and husband Tony (a long-time Regional District of Kootenay Boundary Area D director) raised their four children. It is an award to Lodder’s husband for Grand Forks’ Best Farm in 1955. Lodder’s son and her daughter-in-law

If you are fortunate enough to know or meet and the Christina Lake Hall.

The school is now a community hall but the area prompts many memories. There was no running water, electricity or phones, but life was good and people were selfsufficient. She tells me about the dances that were held at the Brown Creek School and how young and old alike would gather. Admission was a donation of some baked goods, food or a “cover charge” of 75 cents for men, 50 cents for women. Girls were allowed time from school to make the sandwiches that were to be served and much of the town would show up for an evening of fun, with the ladies often bringing a cake or such for admission adding to the feast. The older crowd even journeyed to Christina Lake and other nearby communities to dance and socialize. There were Boxing Day and New Year’s Eve dances that were held at the high school. We are fortunate as a community to have our town “pioneers” as living resources that are willing to share their stories and wisdom and remind us of harder, yet simpler times. We can get all the documents, statistics and such in the lower level of city hall, where our community archives are held in care of the Boundary Museum Society, or from our government pertaining to events and properties, but it is in the telling of Tony Lodder, Laura’s husband, and the 1955 the stories from the actual people that will be what trophy for Best B.C.

Cohousing presentation on Saturday JIM HOLTZ Submitted

As concerns grow about shrinking natural and financial resources, homeowners are beginning to look for ways to provide comfortable and sustainable housing in a positive social context. While some move into walled, urban communities or highrise condominiums, others are opting for an alternative known as cohousing. Cohousing neighbourhoods combine the autonomy of private dwellings with the advantages of shared resources and community living. On Saturday, March 3, at 6:30 p.m. at Holy Trinity Anglican Church, Stuart McKinnon and Wolf Willow from the Middle Road Cohousing Community in Nelson will be speaking about the characteristics and advantages of cohousing and answering questions. Cohousing communities employ efficient, environmentally sensitive use of land and residences that are space and energy efficient.

Residents take part in the overall planning of the community and cooperate in the development of the shared spaces. Those spaces may consist of gardens, open green areas, play areas for children, or may be community buildings containing meeting areas, workshops, kitchens, arts and crafts areas, or whatever else the community might decide. According to organizer Peter Matheson, the concept of cohousing suits the Grand Forks area very well. “It’s definitely related to the smart growth principals that the city has put forward in its sustainability plan,” Matheson said. “The city has a carbon reduction agreement that encourages greater density. Plus from the point of view of the homeowner, cohousing is both more cost effective and greener than neighbourhoods proposed by typical developers.” Matheson adds that the concept also suits alternative or at least sustainable construction methods that take into account the life cycle cost of materials.


Local author finalist in competition CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

Local Leslie Davidson was listed as a finalist in this year’s Short Prose Competition for Developing Writers. In it’s 19th year, the Writers’ Union of Canada’s contest chooses the best story under 2,500 words, and aims to discover and promote new writers. A retired kindergarten teacher, Davidson’s Psalm for an Only Daughter was rewritten from her original story Hearts Journey. “I had a piece that I had written for the Boundary Coalition’s fundraiser,“ she explained. “I had done some writing for them before and they were looking for a story that a male narrator could read in bits and pieces during the show, so it was on and off during the show and it was divided into three sections.” The story, though narrated by a man, was broken into three parts: hair-raising, heartbreak and healing. “The germ of the story came out of a conversation with a group of men when we were talking about a fundraising project,” Davidson said. “I’m very grateful for the input I got. So I pulled out that story again when I read the contest rules and added some poetry to it.”

One morning Davidson woke up to write a stronger ending and once she tweaked her story, she sent it in. Several months later, to the point where she almost forget she submitted it, she received the news she was a finalist. “The phone call came and I was thrilled, saying, ‘I really can’t believe it,’” she said. “There’s a long timeline with these contests and competitions, and I had sent it out months and months ago.” It was a welcome surprise to say the least. “I’ve always written; it was my favourite thing to do at school but I also loved being a teacher and being a mom,” she explained. “I found those all-consuming so it was something I looked forward to doing when I retired so I sat down to seriously do it.” Davidson focuses on non-fiction but her main focus is writing for children. “I taught Kindergarten for a million years and read a million children stories and I love them,” she stated. “I have done a children’s novel and it’s come back to me with some encouraging comments but certainly no offer to publish.” Her advice to upcoming writers, “Write what you want to write. Write for the joy, the pleasures, and the satisfaction of constructing. You do this for you, not for other people.”

2012 world community film festival reviews

Business manager on site for your financial needs!

Gazette Staff

Occupy Love and The Revolution is Love The 2012 Traveling World Community Film Festival in Grand Forks began with a five-minute hors d’oeuvre that was Occupy Love by filmmaker Velcrow Ripper. Featuring spoken word artist Drew Dellinger’s dialogue amidst Occupy video footage from south of the border, the film could’ve benefitted if it delved more into the movement. The Occupy movement, protesting the one percent of the population that holds the world’s wealth amongst other things, was one that swept the globe and five minutes doesn’t do it justice – it is a complex issue. What were the various protestors representing? What were the opinions of the police officers that moved in on the protestors? A little more meat would’ve been beneficial. As an added bonus, organizers also showed Charles Einstein’s The Revolution is Love, which was directed by Ian MacKenzie and produced by Ripper and MacKenzie. The Revolution is Love gave more insight into Occupy, which I was so desperately craving from Occupy Love but still fell short of what I was ultimately craving. I wanted to know more, the full meal deal if you will. – Karl Yu Rainforest Filmed out of Vancouver Island and directed by Richard Boyce, Rainforest looks at the damage clear-cutting and harvesting of timber has done to once pristine forests. Boyce, inspired by his ties with a Kwaxkwaka’wakw elder, embarks on a journey that reveals his time as a protester and the ancient forests on the island. Throughout the documentary, there were vivid images of clear-cut forests and decimated areas. While the images are startling enough, if not new, the moments were broken by complete silence. There was no audio, including nature’s own call, and it seemed almost awkward to me. I think I would have preferred if they increased the noise of static to point out the damaging effects of nature, instead of keeping it muted the entire time. Overall, a different look on forestry and clear-cutting, stunning images, but the news is old. – Cassandra Chin Consuming Kids: The Commercialization of Childhood The film was alarmingly sad, but not much of a shocker. Directed by Adriana Barbaro and Jeremy Earp, Consuming Kids; the Commercialization of Childhood focuses on how children have become the target for branding and marketing. From junk food to video games, to figurines and paraphernalia, the multi-billion dollar marketing world aims to drive children to thinking more is better. Rather than instilling values and morals, the documentary sheds light on the disturbing fact that even Baby Einstein isn’t that great for children. It’s definitely a must see, and I would also recommend youth to watch it too. – CC

Play Again Teenagers glued to screens, whether it was computer games, their cell phones or the television, were upended from their sedentary lives and placed into an outdoor camp. It revealed teenagers, from 12 to 16 years old, who were previously hooked to their screens were able to enjoy the outdoors and play time when showed how to. It’s disturbing how much time children and youth spend enthralled by the screen when there are many options that can be indulged in outside of the screen. Directed by Tonje Hessen Schei, the film reveals how the screen is as much a drug as mushrooms, with the youth entering the early stages of withdrawal within days, and sometimes hours, of not being near one. A sad fact, but clearly something, even an outdoors wilderness camp, can be done to change the addiction. – CC Happy By far my favourite, Happy, directed by Roko Belic, looks at various people around the world who are faced with different circumstances, but are ultimately happy. Optimistic, uplifting and a breath of fresh air, the documentary looks at the upsides of being happy and “positive psychology.” After several documentaries looking at the engagement of technology and consumerism and the destruction of the environment, it was definitely a documentary that tugged at ones heart strings. From the slums of India to the bayous of Louisiana, happiness is something found, not in the amount of money one has or by one’s appearance, but by acceptance and values one holds dear. Documentaries are usually hit or miss for me, and this is one that I’d have no trouble watching again. – CC

Snowball Ventures strikes gold CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

What started as a small venture over 15 years ago has turned into a successful business recognized around the Kootenay. Snowball Ventures has received the Gold award for Fireplace/Wood Stove Dealer and a Bronze award for Furnace Sales & Service from the Kootenay Business Magazine’s 2011 Best of Business awards. The awards are given to recipients based of reader surveys in the Kootenay Business Magazine. President and owner John Billwiller began the business after first installing his own pellet furnace into his home. “You couldn’t buy decent pellets anywhere in the area,” explained Billwiller. “I had to travel to Nelson to get pellets. So when I had the opportunity to sell pellets, I did so and it snowballed from there.” Snowball Ventures, named thusly because Billwiller lives near the Snowball Creek area, located north of Grand Forks, sells wood stoves, wood stove inserts and furnaces.

Pellet stoves differ from regular stoves because it uses compressed sawdust about the size of a pen and around an inch long. The pellets are then fed into a burned pot at a regulated rate. Inside there is forced air compression and a fan that increases the combustion. “It is far more efficient than wood and a lot more convenient,” he pointed out. Billwiller is also a part of the Woodstove Exchange Program, which is focused on exchanging older furnaces with more heat and carbon efficient models. “Every year a few people take advantage of (the program),” he said. “It’s also pellet stoves and other forms of heating that are replacing inefficient wood heat.” “It’s always a surprise because I’m just a little guy out in the bush, north of Grand Forks,” he recalled. “Platinum was given to Kootenay Wood Stove, and they’re much bigger than I am.” Billwiller added, “I’d like to thank everybody who voted for me over the year.” For more information, visit

Locals help with Bee Genome CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

Grand Forks residents Terry and Elizabeth Huxter are preparing to study honey bees, their various traits and how to save them from diseases. Working alongside Genome BC and Genome Canada with the University of British Columbia (UBC) in Vancouver, the Huxters are focusing on how to make bees more self-sufficient. In the past several years, there has been news that bee colonies across North America are facing collapse due to widespread diseases. The aim of the project is to help the bees look after themselves with fewer treatments, which is done through breeding. “To do that with breeding, we look at certain traits and in order to define those traits, presently, the best and only way is from field testing,” explained Elizabeth Huxter. “This project is going to attempt to make this a lot easier for beekeepers, by making what’s called marker-assist selection.” Marker-assist selection is done through identifying traits from proteins taken from bee samples. One way to identify hives that do a certain thing is by comparing bee samples or different parts of a bee to determine if there is some clue chemically that is contrasting. “As an example, a pregnancy test,” stated Huxter. “If you’re pregnant or not, you can tell with the drug store test. That’s what they’re hoping to do for bee breeders.” An example of a test is how they determine whether bees like to clean things out a brood.

“We have a test where we freeze a small circle of brood (a patch of about 70 cells) and the next day we go in and see how fast they’ve opened up the cells and cleaned out the dead bees, the little pupae. So that’s our task for hygienic bee breeds,” she said. Huxter noted the project is looking to find markers to help with breeding, which is the part she is involved with. There are three parts to the project: the marking, an economic analysis, and an integrated path management (IPM) that determines which pathogens are the worst. “There are five to six diseases commonly found in bees so we’re going to look at those and determine which ones are the worst and which combinations are the worst,” she said. “Bees have a lot of problems, just like we do. They have viruses, bugs, fungus, bacteria and mites as well.” Huxter usually works from Grand Forks and during the summer, people from UBC visit and help her take samples. Huxter also receives help from locals. Along with aiding UBC’s academic endeavours, Huxter stated she and Terry have their own breeding program. “That program isn’t just around specific traits but around self-sufficiency by bees,” she explained. “So we run some yards where bees are not treated at all and then we breed from the survivors.” The Huxter’s method is known as survivor-ship breeding, which is similar to IPM but allows nature to do its own thing. “I think that’s a nice holistic approach, with a similar approach to the Genome BC project, but just a different avenue to go about it,” she said. “So we have these two ways we go about trying to reach our goals. One is more academic while the other is more holistic approach.”

Brain Architecture The basic architecture of the human brain is constructed through an ongoing process that begins before birth and continues into adulthood. Like the construction of a home, the building process begins with laying the foundation, framing the rooms and wiring the electrical system in a predictable sequence. Early experiences literally shape how the brain gets built; a strong foundation in the early years increases the probability of positive outcomes. A weak foundation increases the odds of later difficulties.

V-Day Grand Forks joins global effort to stop violence against women Submitted

V-Day Grand Forks 2012 presents a benefit reading of A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and a Prayer: Writings To Stop Violence Against Women and Girls. Join us as we raise funds and awareness to end violence against women and girls on Friday, March 16 and Saturday, March 17 at Studio B (7330 2nd Street) at 7:30 p.m. A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant and A Prayer: Writings To Stop Violence Against Women and Girls, is a groundbreaking collection of monologues by world-renowned authors and playwrights, edited by Eve Ensler (author of The Vagina Monologues) and Mollie Doyle. The writings are inspired, funny, angry, heartfelt,

tragic and beautiful. But together, they create a true and profound portrait of how violence against women affects every one of us. A Memory, A Monologue, A Rant, And A Prayer are a call to the world to demand an end to violence against women. V-Day is a global activist movement to end violence against women and girls that raises funds and awareness through benefit productions of playwright/founder Ensler’s award-winning play The Vagina Monologues and other artistic works. In 2011, over 5,800 V-Day benefit events took place produced by volunteer activists around the world. To date, the V-Day movement has raised over $85 million and educated millions about the issue of violence

against women and the efforts to end it, crafted international educational media and public service announcement campaigns, launched the Karama program in the Middle East, re-opened shelters and funded over 13,000 community-based anti-violence programs and safe houses in Democratic Republic Of Congo, Haiti, Kenya, South Dakota, Egypt and Iraq. In 2001, V-Day was named one of Worth Magazine’s 100 Best Charities in 2006, one of Marie Claire Magazine’s Top10 charities and in 2010, was named as one of the toprated organizations on Great Nonprofits.

Soup and biscuits for the sick soul

Thank You

to everyone who helped make the Grand Forks Gazette’s ski free night so much fun

Many thanks to the enthusiastic crowd who attended; to our generous door prize businesses • Chain Reaction Ride & Slide • Jogas Espresso Café •Work n Play •The Source •Value Drug Mart

and the amazing people of Phoenix Ski Hill

If you’re sick with the flu or a head cold, here are some recipes that will be good for what ails you


I threw on my toque, wrapped a scarf around my neck, grabbed some gloves and the dog and out the

door we went. After two days of hiding in the house, laying on the couch I needed fresh air. The head cold season had got me and got me good, ugh! It’s hard enough having a cold but gee winter did you have to bring such a dreadful one? Seems like everyone has had some form of cold or flu and this one hangs on – not nice. It sure felt good to get out today, the breeze was a little chilly but the sun was shining and I met several others braving the cold and enjoying the day. The dog was thrilled too, guess he was tired of hearing me wheeze and sneeze. The hard part about being that sick is not wanting to eat, especially since I couldn’t really smell anything. Toast and tea for breakfast and a sinus pill – yum. Maybe if I put a pot of soup on and let it simmer, I can cover lunch and dinner. Yeah, a big pot of soup that at least sounds appealing. Check the cupboards to make sure I have enough of everything, – thank goodness with soup you can wing it – just remember lots of garlic for the cold season! A batch of fresh warm biscuits and I will feel like I accomplished a lot today all things considered. Soup warms us up and is good for the soul. Mushroom, celery and garlic soup – 3 cups chopped mushrooms – 4 celery sticks chopped – 3 garlic cloves – 3 table white wine – 32/3 cup chicken stock – 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce – salt and pepper – celery leaves for garnish Place mushrooms, celery and garlic in pan and stir in wine. Cover and cook over a low heat 30 to 40 minutes, until tender.

Thank You from the bottom of my heart. To my wonderful family, friends and neighbours who celebrated my 80th Birthday with me on February 14th.

What a big surprise! Love to you all,

Margaret Dobie

St. Patrick’s Day leads to memories of grandma ❚ Crafty Corner


I was thinking about taking a walk back through my younger years. Just as many teachers now include crafts as part of their curriculum, my teachers did as well. Most of those crafts were related to holidays or events and I thought it would be fun to revisit one of those projects. I must say that I have a tendency to change things to make them my own, so I have modified this

project to suit my style. The project I chose was a shamrock bookmark in honour of upcoming St. Patrick’s Day. I have changed it from cutting out a bright green shamrock with a paper stem, to this. 1. Cut out a three-inch (7.62-cm) circle from an olive green (or green) card stock. 2. Fold the circle in half. 3. Fold in half again. 4. In half one more time 5. From the folded side, trim to the shape of half a heart. 6. Unfold 7. Trim one of the heart-shaped sections as shown and punch a small hole at the base of the shamrock. 8. Cut a chenille stem (in a matching color) in half and make a 45-degree small bend at the top. 9. Insert the small bended end through shamrock from front to back and squeeze flat. I rubbed some fine grit sandpaper on all the folds to give it a rustic look. I hope this project reminds you of some of the projects that you may have made in school, Sunday school or maybe at grammy’s house. My grandma was a huge influence on my crafting growing up. She was blind and thus there were challenges with her teaching me but we muddled through. I remember when it was time to clear out her house, there were little projects all over, from a macaroni covered can sprayed gold to crocheted hot mats that I made with her. She had even kept all the cards my brother and I had made as well as the ashtray my brother had made my grandpa out of salt dough. Oh the memories that have come flooding into my heart. Grandma, I miss you.

Dear Publisher,

Triathlon training for the whole family LILLY BRYANT Grand Forks Recreation

Spring is not far off now, the sun is warming and the snow is melting on our local fields. Soon the kids will be back on their bikes and riding the streets, skateboarding in the park, kicking the soccer ball and hitting the baseball around. If you are interested in getting your child involved in soccer, go to the website for information about registration and structure of the local youth soccer organization. *** Babe Ruth baseball will be set up for registration at the aquatic centre pool lobby on Saturday, March 10 from 1 to 5 p.m. For more information contact Peter at 250-442-3510. *** Triathlons can be a lot of fun and it gives you an opportunity to cross train for swimming, biking and running, making your fitness training a little more exciting. There are things to consider before you start your triathlon training program. Stop by the aquatic centre and pick up a pool schedule for the best times for lap swims. Check over your bike and make sure it is in good working order, (working brakes, good tires etc.). Take it to a bike shop and get a tune up before you get started. Make a trip to a sports store and have an assessment done so you are purchasing the proper shoes for your gait. This can reduce the risk of injury. You are now ready to start your training. Come into the recreation office and ask for advice on training programs or go online and choose a program that works for you. Set your goal and be ready to complete the 2012 Pharmasave Christina Lake Triathlon scheduled for Sunday, June 24. Make it a family affair and register the entire family. Kids between the ages of seven and 12 can participate in the Kids Sprint event. They must complete a 100-m swim, six-km bike ride and a two-km run. We will be offering a

training program for kids starting in May, which will include four swim sessions, four bike training sessions and four run sessions. Give us a call for more details on the training program or to register. *** Spring break is full of fun things to do here at Grand Forks Recreation (GFREC). Red Cross spring break swim lessons are scheduled the week of March 26 to 30 – receive your next badge in just one week. If you are 13 years of age, you are eligible to join the spring break leadership camp. GFREC has combined the Bronze Medallion and Bronze Cross courses so you can achieve both awards in just one week. These awards are the prerequisite for the National Lifeguard Service award. If you are interested in teaching swim lessons this summer or gaining the experience to work at an aquatic centre, you will need to start your training by registering for the Assistant Water Safety Instructor course. This course is a one-week course that teaches the proper skills needed to teach children how to swim. The course is scheduled during the first week of spring break, March 19 to 23. Deadline to register is March 12 so call us today to get on the list. *** Ladies, GFREC is offering you an opportunity to come in and pamper yourself during our ladies night at the pool on Friday, March 2. Relax in the hot tub, sauna and pool or check out the displays in the lobby sponsored by Trust in Nature, Jazzercise, Curves for Women, The Nutrition Stop and Pharmasave. This event has also been sponsored by GFREC, Promotions Plus, 2010 Legacy Now, the provincial and federal governments and British Columbia Parks and Recreation. For information on triathlon training, give us a call at 250-442-2202 or email us at gfplay@rdkb. com. You can also visit our website at www.rdkb. com to view the March flyer.

Those attending basketball tournaments at Grand Forks Secondary School the past few weeks may have noticed the referees were using pink whistles. This had nothing to do with Pink Shirt Day (protesting anti-bullying) but referees were supporting a cause just as noble – the fight against cancer. David Brewer, president and allocator of the West Kootenay Basketball Officials Association, said that the provincial (officials) body began the initiative three years ago in honour of refs who had passed away due to cancer. “There was the suggestion of wearing pink whistles, a number of other sports had gone to pink to demonstrate their support for the fight against cancer or breast cancer and it has grown from there,” Brewer said. While the West Kootenay association didn’t participate in the pink whistles the first year (2009), the executive met the next year, talked to all the members and decided to purchase 15 whistles (for the 15 members) and give it out of the association funds. “This year what the provincial body did was everybody was given a quota and then asked to pay. Over and above that, each official has been asked to donate a game fee and that could range anywhere from $25 to $40, depending on what they decide to do and it’s all in support of the fight against cancer,” explained Brewer. “Our goal provincially, is to raise about $15,000

this year.” Brewer said that the first year, officials only used whistles for one week in February, last year they were used for two weeks and this year, pink whistles were used by refs for the entire month of February. “There was probably a little more exposure because of the playoff games that go on towards the end of February and the fans too are encouraged to go to ( and if they want to, there is a place for them to link in to and donate to the cause as well,” Brewer went on to say.


Master curlers set to invade Grand Forks Curling Club CURL BC REGION 1 Submitted

From March 1 to 4, 16 Masters (ages 60+) curling teams (eight men and eight women) are in Grand Forks, B.C., to compete in the Provincial Masters Championship. These teams come from all over the province – with the exception of the Peace region – and represent curling clubs in their zones, from as far away as Comox, Quesnel and Creston in addition to numerous other towns and cities in between. The Men’s and Women’s Champions from this provincial playdown will represent B.C. on the national stage later this month in Montreal, Que. Just to get to the provincial championships, all of the members of these teams are champions in their own right. As is usually the case in provincial championships, many of these curlers bring an exceptional wealth of curling experience and previous accolades with them. This year however, appears to be extraordinary in the number of curlers who have been previous provincial, territorial

and national champions, in all different levels of curling: juniors, men, women, mixed, senior and master. On the women’s side of the competition, curlers on four of the eight teams – Maureen Bird, Sandra Galloway, Morreen MacLeod and Carol McFadden – have, at least, one B.C. Masters Champion to their credit. In addition to these championships, individual accomplishments include N.W.T. representation at the National Scott Tournament of Hearts, B.C. Mixed Championships, and B.C. Senior Women’s Championship. On the men’s side of the competition, the Garry Gelowitz and Rick Pughe teams combine to be the B.C. Masters Champion for the past four years, with the Pughe team winning the national championship in 2008 and the Gelowitz team being the reigning national champion. While there have been some lineup changes on the Gelowitz teams, most of the members of the current Pughe team were on the winning teams of 2008 and 2009. In addition to these two

teams, a number of other teams – Wayne Saboe, Craig Lightbody, Doug Bothamley and Glen Ford – include members who have provincial, territorial and national titles to their credit, including junior men’s national, mixed, seniors, masters, Elks and Legion championships. Some of the curlers have also participated in numerous Brier championships. In fact, one of the curlers, present in our city this weekend, has also had international curling experience, winning a Bronze medal for Australia in the 2010 World Senior Championship held in Russia. The curlers are in town and the community is ready to watch some superb curling this weekend, starting on Thursday with the opening ceremonies scheduled for 6:30 p.m., followed by the opening draw at 7:30 p.m. Round robin games go all day Friday and Saturday with the semifinals and finals scheduled for Sunday. Good luck and may the curling gods be on your side this weekend at the curling club in Grand Forks.

The Grand Forks Secondary School (GFSS) Wolves senior boys’ basketball team closed off the season, going 1-2 at the AA Kootenay Zone basketball tournament this past weekend at the GFSS gym. Friday, Feb. 24: GFSS Wolves 56 vs. David Thompson Lakers 57 It appeared as if the sixth-seeded Wolves would be at least headed to OT against the threeseed Lakers but a potential game-tying free throw was waved off by the referee, citing a lane violation. Damien Rougeau led the Wolves in scoring with 24 points. “It was an amazing game, it was probably the best one I’ve ever played in but it’s pretty crushing to lose it by that little,” explained GFSS player Ryan Horahan. Horahan disagreed with the lane violation call that nullified what would’ve been the tying basket. “I just call it a questionable call by the referee; I don’t like it,” he said. “He’s not our favourite ref I guess but it wasn’t his fault,” explained GFSS’ Brodie Hall. “We had so many opportunities to close that game. The easiest reason would be to blame it on someone else for the loss but it was really us. We missed shots when we should’ve made them.” Head Coach Michael Wirischagin agreed. “I honestly thought it was a questionable call as well but ultimately it shouldn’t have had come to that point,” Wirischagin said. “We turned the ball over too many times. We missed easy lay ups and easy shots and we missed free throws and if we had done those little things right, it would have never come to that point.” Friday, Feb. 24: Prince Charles Secondary School (PCSS) 51 vs. GFSS 60 The team bounced back for a win against PCSS despite the emotional end to the previous game. Hall took an elbow to the mouth early in the game and had to be taken to hospital. He was OK but did not return. “One of their post players kind of brought the ball over and his elbow hit me in the mouth and I dropped to the floor,” explained Hall about the elbow incident the following day. “I didn’t really know what happened and I kind of blacked out for a bit but I got back up and

my teammates were saying my teeth were out, so I got up and went to the hospital and I heard that my teammates pulled through and got the win.” “My teeth are back in and I don’t have any fake teeth or anything so it’s all good,” Hall quipped. Rougeau once again led the team in scoring, this time with 19 points. Saturday, Feb. 25: GFSS 62 vs. Selkirk Secondary School 66 Ryan Horahan fouled out and was replaced by Ross Merry. Rougeau, Jamie Ferguson and Heath Bergum were tied for a game-high 16 points each. Because of his injury suffered in the PCSS game, Hall, who along with Horahan will graduate this year, sat for most of the game but Wirischagin gave him some time at the end, as it was his final game and he made a basket. Hall wasn’t happy about spending most of the game on the bench. “Worst feeling of my life,” Hall said of being spectator for most of the Selkirk game. “It was awful but I got that last basket at the end and it made it a bit better.” After the team’s final game, Wirischagin noted that the team’s lack of success from the free throw line hindered the team and the fact it turned the ball over quite a bit in its three games didn’t help either. “It’s often the small things that come back to bite you and that’s ultimately what happened. Turnovers, free throws, the small little things,” he said. The team was quite tenacious under the boards throughout its three games but Wirischagin saw room for improvement. “We had a killer instinct in this tournament that we haven’t had all season. Defensively, I would’ve liked to see us box out a little better,” he said. “We gave up too many offensive rebounds but for the first time all season, we went and got some of those offensive boards and put back points that every other team seems to be able to get that are the little things again that help you win and keep you in games.” Nelson’s L.V. Rogers ultimately won the tournament, defeating Invermere’s David Thompson 64-49 in the zone final. The Nelson high school will represent the Kootenay zone at the provincial tournament in Kamloops, which takes place between March 7 and 10.

Notice of Passing ROSE BEAULIEU Rose Marie Beaulieu passed peacefully on February 2, 2012, surrounded by loving friends and community members at Christina Lake, B.C. A memorial was held on Thursday, February 9, at the Christina Lake Community Hall. Rose was born on April 28, 1957, at Edmonton, Alberta, to Marguerite Rose Klugie. Her biological father was a young Italian man, the son of an Italian restaurant owner. Due to the times and circumstances, it was decided that adoption would be the best way, and so from birth Rose was placed in an orphanage for children to await adoption. That happened three and one half years later, when two wonderful people appeared. Mary and Micheal Andruchow fell in love with Rose and took her home to be raised on their wheat and cattle farm near Lamont, Alberta. Rose enjoyed a happy life. Her school years passed in the Lamont area, and then at age 15, harder times came when her Dad died and she and her Mom had to sell the farm and moved into town. Rose got a cleaning job at the local hospital on weekends and holidays, and continued in high school. Growing up in a close-knit small town of 700, Rose was not told of her native heritage until after high school to avoid any discrimination. She excelled at high jump, badminton, and enjoyed riding her bike around town with friends. In the winter, ice-skating, skidooing and all the things of small town life. Rose left home for Edmonton in her early 20’s, beginning a life of work including managing hotel and motel businesses in Stettler and Pencticton. She loved the hospitality business. Later Rose became the energetic and accomplished house painter and decorator so many people in Christina Lake knew her as. In 1998 she met her birth mother, Marguerite Klugie, and her siblings (many of whom were just meeting each other as well) - three brothers and three sisters. She developed her relationships with care, while living her life to the fullest! Her courage and energy and drive to heal her illness was legendary. She connected with her new found birth family, supported her friends and family here, worked on many jobs across the town, walked, talked, visited and built a life that she had longed for. A place to call home. A place full of people she trusted and loved. She found your community and this family in time to be cared for in a way she had never allowed others to care for her. We all know she would be the first to rise and work and lend a hand; it was now on her last bed that she said to friends and family and to those who cared for her each day, thank you for caring for me, for carrying me to this glorious end of life. Her life ended in peace and joy. Rose is predeceased by her adoptive mother Mary and father Michal, and her brother Patrick Fumo. She is survived by her life friend Joe Lindley and his daughters Natasha and Tamara, as well as Joe’s family and the innumerable Christina Lake friends who were family. Thank you all, and thank you Ralph and Lucy Ackles, the Christina Lake Choir and everyone who made Rose’s memorial a celebration of a wonderful life lived. Rose asked for donations to area SPCA groups instead of flowers. Grand Forks Funeral Home had care of arrangements.

The culture of care JEAN BLAKE CEO, Alzheimer Society of B.C.

The Alzheimer Society of B.C. is encouraged by both the recent Ombudsperson’s report, “The Best of Care: Getting it Right for Seniors” and the Ministry of Health’s Action Plan, “Improving Care for B.C. Seniors.” Although we recognize the challenges, the Alzheimer Society urges transformational change of the health care system to ensure person-centered care and services for families facing dementia. As noted in the Ombudsperson’s report, there are significant gaps in the care for people with dementia and their families that must be addressed. Her report references the Dementia Service Framework, 2007, an excellent blueprint for further action. Implementing the Ombudsperson’s report would go a long way to achieving the goal of humanizing care in residential care facilities. The Alzheimer Society of B.C. is actively engaged in efforts to improve the quality of life for people with dementia who live in care facilities and who now make up the largest group of residents. Our public position “Changing the Culture of Care” is available on our website We look forward to the minister’s review of existing best practices for seniors’ care and the redesign of the system. Connecting people newly diagnosed with dementia to the education, information and support programs is one example of how redesign can strengthen the health-care system. The Action Plan referenced our innovative First Link program, which is funded by the Ministry of Health and partners with physicians and other health care providers, making it easy for them to connect their patients impacted by dementia to the society. Frail elders with physical challenges, living alone can often be safely supported at home very late into their illness because they are able to collaborate and co-operate with community support staff. People with dementia most often must move into residential care when they experience challenges with behavioural and psychological symptoms. The challenges of care eventually outstrip the capacity of family caregivers to be able to support them in their own homes and inadequate community support no longer ensures their safety. Once in the care facility, the behavioural symptoms of the person with dementia confound staff, who are under-prepared for effectively managing the care required. Behavioural symptoms are now understood increasingly to be expressions of unmet needs. Most of the time, the unmet needs can be identified and, if care is planned accordingly, can be supported with non-pharmacological care and minimal psychotropic medication use. People with dementia living in care facilities need in this situation, among others: to have their needs recognized and managed appropriately; to be known first as a person with a rich and complex story that is understood and valued; to be recognized as a member of a family and that the family members also have important needs for education and support; and to have an accurate diagnosis, where the journey is acknowledged, respected, and communicated with family.

Notice of Passing JUDI THOMAS December 20, 1958 to February 23, 2012 It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved Judi. After a long and courageous battle with cancer, Judi passed away peacefully with her family by her side. Judi was born at Trail, B.C., the third child and only daughter of Alex and Mary Wishlow. She grew up in the loving care of a large extended family. She left her family home at Creston to attend university and in 1984 was awarded a Bachelor of Commerce degree from UBC. Judi then joined the IBM Corporation and quickly rose to the executive ranks, which at the time was a rare achievement for a female. In May of 1991, Judi embarked on a new career, that of a devoted mother of two rambunctious boys. For the remainder of her life she dedicated her time, energy and boundless love to her children. Judi had an infectious love of life. She was always ready and willing to re-invent herself and try new things and in doing so, inspired those she touched to do the same. Outside her family, her greatest passions were competitive volleyball and singing. One of the greatest joys of her life was the time she spent performing and recording music with Trillium. Judi is predeceased by her mother, Mary. She is survived by her husband, Kelly; sons, Sean and Ryan; father, Alex; brothers: Don, Frank and Kevin; her incomparable aunt, Julia; brothers-in-law: Tony and Rose Thomas, and Ted and Kate Thomas; sister-in-law, Patti and Yves Gendron; nieces, Jocelyn and Michelle; and great-niece, Eve. A celebration of Judi’s life will be held on March 3, 2012, at 2 p.m., at the Christina Lake Community Hall, 90 Park Rd. Internment at the Grand Forks Cemetery will be followed by a reception at the Christina Lake Hall. Funeral arrangements administered by the Grand Forks Funeral Home. Our deepest appreciation to Dr. Karen Gelman, the nurses at the Chemo Therapy Unit of the KBRH, Arjan Stolker and all of our friends and relatives, too many to mention, for all they did for our Judi during this difficult time. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Chemo Therapy Unit of the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital, Trail, B.C. It is night. The night is for stillness. Let us be still. It is night after a long day. What has been done is done. What has not been done has not been done. Let it be. The night is quiet. Let the stillness of the peace enfold us, all who are dear to us and all who have no peace. The night heralds the dawn. Let us look expectantly to a new day, new joys and new possibilities. A27

Notice of Passing VERA SEMENOFF It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Vera Semenoff of Grand Forks, B.C. Vera passed away in the loving presence of family at Hardy View Lodge, on February 16, 2012, at age 81. Born in Lundbreck, Alberta, on February 15, 1931, to Peter and Helen Salekin. As a young woman on a visit to Grand Forks, she met a young man, Pat Semenoff, son of Peter and Mary Semenoff. After a short courtship they were married on April 17, 1949. They lived in Coleman, Alberta, for a few years and later settled in Grand Forks to raise their two children, Elaine and Wally. Vera was a lifelong member of the USCC. She actively participated in the ladies cooking groups, ladies choirs and was always willing to help and contribute when called to serve in all related functions. Vera retired in 1989 after completing 25 years of service working for School District #12 as custodian for the John Hutton School. She was a conscientious employee who took great pride in keeping the school clean and tidy. Vera’s most treasured joys and concerns in her life were her children and her granddaughter, Cosette. She loved her garden and the abundance that it provided. Her love of family was evident in her affection and support of family members as well as her delicious home cooked family dinners. Her hospitality, generosity and gentle nature was extended to all who knew her and it was her gift to all of us. Vera is survived by her daughter Elaine (John) Sookochoff of Grand Forks, son Wally (Valarie) Semenoff of Christina Lake, granddaughter Cosette (Mark) Kempston and great-granddaughter Kiana Kempston of Kelowna. She also leaves behind her brother Larry (Margaret) Salekin, niece Lynn (Chris) Parno of Airdrie, Alta., nephew Anthony Salekin of Calgary, Alta., nephew Don Salekin of Grand Forks, as well as extended family members and friends. A funeral service was held at the USCC Community Centre on Monday, February 20, 2012 . Grand Forks Funeral Home had care of arrangements. Vera will be sadly missed by her family, her relatives and friends. We will keep and cherish her memory in our hearts forever. May she rest in peace in God’s heavenly kingdom. Memorial donations will be gratefully accepted to the USCC or the Alzheimer’s Society of B.C.

Nik Green promo films go live




16,999 $ 106 2.99%



Two new promo films shot in the area will be used in local marketing efforts as the tourist season begins this year. Locally raised film producer Nik Green used his time spent in the area last summer to shoot two kinetic films that highlight the areas’ assets to potential visitors. The films are shot largely in a first person perspective to give the









viewer the feeling they are already here. “I wanted to make the visitor feel as though they’re part of an experience not just a spectator when watching it,” said Green. The films are being posted on the HelloBC website with Grand Forks and Christina Lake already posted and a film for the West Boundary to follow. Green partnered with the City of Grand Forks, Community Futures Boundary and the RDKB to

bring the project to life. The chance to act as a tourist in his hometown was the main appeal of creating the films. “You can have a lot of fun here if you plan it right, and its even more fun with an HD camera strapped to your head,” The duo’s company Global Authority is also shooting a documentary in the area that will be aimed toward television and festival screenings. The story includes locally shot footage
