School superintendent Anne Cooper to retire ALEX COOPER

Anne Cooper has announced she will be retiring as superintendent of the Revelstoke School District, but not until she sees the new schools project to completion next year. The school district announced Thursday morning that Cooper would be retiring as of June 30, 2013. “I really thought long and hard over Christmas that I needed to bring closure to a plan for myself,” she told the Times Review. “I love this job and I’ve had such a wonderful 13 years to date and another year and a bit to wrap up things.” Cooper’s announcement is not unexpected and she has hinted at her intentions for some time, however she only made if official recently, informing the Revelstoke Board of Education of her plans two weeks ago. Mike Hooker, the principal of Revelstoke Secondary School, will be her replacement, the board

announced. Alan Chell, Chair of the Revelstoke Board of Education, expressed gratitude for Cooper’s work as superintendent. “Anne’s done an incredible job for this district,” he said. “I would regard her as probably the finest superintendent in the province and we’ve been really fortunate to have her. I just think the world of her.” Hooker has spent the past 15 years in the district as principal of Arrow Heights Elementary and Revelstoke Secondary School. “I have no doubt whatsoever that Mike would be an excellent superintendent,” said Chell. “I have no doubt in my mind if we didn’t hire Mike as a superintendent, he would definitely have other districts looking to hire him.” Chell said that Hooker was in the board’s sights as a replacement for some time but they still asked him to make a presentation before them to make sure he was the right person to take over. “We met and had a good, good session last week and after the ses-

sion we all came to the conclusion that he was the right guy to bring us forward,” said Chell. Hooker said he will be sad to see Cooper retire but is also excited about his promotion. “I’ve been really excited to work with her and a large part of staying here and sticking with a career here has to do with her and the way the district was being run and the quality that was here,” he said. “It’s interesting to consider that work because leaving the school will be hard for me. My life has been the kids and the staff and this job will obviously change that focus a little bit. “Well, maybe not change the focus, but change the day-to-day.” Hooker will leave his post as principal of RSS at the end of this school year and the search for a replacement is underway. Chell said the position would be advertised externally. A plan is being put in place for next year to ensure a smooth transition in leadership. Chell said Cooper, page 3

Canadian Avalanche Centre explores Revelstoke ‘excellence centre’ ALEX COOPER

The Canadian Avalanche Centre is looking at establishing a Centre of Excellence in Avalanche Safety and Education that would be based in Revelstoke. “What’s happened is over the last couple of years the operations of the avalanche centre have really matured and they’ve grown explosively, primarily because of need,” said Ian Tomm, the executive director of the CAC. “We simply don’t have enough room for people any more. As well as we’re starting to get more and more walk-in traffic and more opportunities to bring people into the office.” The CAC announced Wednesday

that it is looking for a business consultant to conduct a feasibility study for the centre of excellence. According to the request for proposal (RFP), the role of the consultant would be to identify potential activities to be undertaken in the centre, identify potential partners and their roles, look at facilities, identify funding sources and revenue streams, review the operations of other similar centres; and prepare a business plan for the first five-year period of the centre. As envisioned by Tomm, the centre of excellence would provide more space for the CAC to run it’s existing avalanche forecasting programs, provide room for researchers, classroom space to run avalanche education programs; and possibly

host a national avalanche archives. In recent years the CAC has expanded its forecasting operations and it expects to continue to improve in that area, with forecasts coming more frequently and in more regions – including the Yukon, Newfoundland and Quebec, said Tomm. He also said the CAC was working on its snowmobile outreach programs. The centre of excellence is a collaboration between the CAC, City of Revelstoke and Columbia Basin Trust. “I’d be really enthused about it. I think it would be an excellent step forward and a real kudos to both the avalanche centre and to the city to be able to attract an institution of that nature,” said Mayor David Raven. “It recognizes a long history

and some real international expertise that the avalanche centre, Parks Canada and lots of others have developed here over the years.” He said the city’s contribution was not financial but through inkind work done by Alan Mason, the city’s director of economic development. According to the RFP, the centre will support established relationships with researchers at the University of British Columbia and University of Calgary. The centre will serve as a “central point for a wide range of researchers and encouraging knowledge transfer.” “We see our involvement with avalanche research expanding into the future and Revelstoke is a natural place for a lot of that research to

be co-ordinated from in terms of the field research,” said Tomm. Lynda Lafleur, a community liaison with CBT, said the organization was providing $20,000 in funding for the study. “It’s really wonderful that there is an agency like this with national status within our Columbia Basin,” she said. “We’re pleased to be able to support them looking at how to deal with their future growth issues.” Tomm said the CAC is hoping to have a draft document for the centre of excellence brought to its annual general meeting in early May and a plan finalized for the end of May. After that, the CAC would seek out funding for the centre.

Cooper to continue until schools project complete from page 1 that Cooper and Hooker would work together in the fall, with Cooper acting as a mentor. Hooker will assume the superintendent’s position in January 2013 and Cooper would spend the second half of the year wrapping up her work. Cooper started her career in 1978 as a teacher in a twoteacher school in Conklin, a tiny hamlet in northern Alberta. She came to Revelstoke in 1999 after 10 years in Fort Nelson. “You know it’s time to retire when the first crop of kids you taught have grandchildren,” she joked. Cooper’s term as superintendent has been highly eventful

and successful. She has overseen improvements in early learning, literacy and graduation rates; as well as the establishment of the province’s first Strong Start centre and Neighbourhood Learning Centre. She credited the collaboration of staff and other outside groups with the districts success. “I think we believe in the school district that our schools have a place for everyone and I think that that’s kind of the key,” she said. “When I look at very few kids that aren’t able to graduate, the very few kids that we know are struggling - it’s because we’re continually saying school can be a success for everyone and all the adults are going to work towards that goal.”

Notably, she has overseen the construction of two new schools – the new high school that opened in October and the new elementary school, which is scheduled to open in time for the next school year. She said her goal was to see the new schools to completion before retiring. As Cooper pointed out, the 2011 graduating class was in kindergarten when she started. The 2012 graduating class will be the first cohort that started kindergarten while she was superintendent. “Very few superintendents have the luxury of staying somewhere long enough where they see two or three complete cohorts go through the system so that’s been a real thrill too,” she

Revelstoke mulls bid for Canadian Ski Hall of Fame and Museum Revelstoke city council will decide whether to approve a bid to host the Canadian Ski Hall of Fame and Museum at their Feb. 28 meeting. Currently, the museum is located in Ottawa, but it has ceased to operate, and the museum is looking for a new home. The Canadian Ski Hall of Fame is looking for expressions of interest for their new home. Revelstoke economic development director Alan Mason is proposing submitting a package, with the proposed location being the Century Vallen building, the former storefront next to the Revelstoke fire hall. The property is owned by the City of Revelstoke. The city also recently purchased the residential property next to the Century Vallen building. At this point there is no financial implications for the bid, Mason said in a report to council – he’s just looking for support. If museum officials consider locating the museum here, Mason said there is a business plan developed that would allow for no net cost to the city.

BC Hydro caribou initiative for Hwy. 23N BC Hydro has installed four LED-powered road signs on Highway 23 North between Revelstoke and Mica in an effort to prevent collisions between vehicles and mountain caribou. “[The] solar-powered flashing lights that will be turned on during the spring and fall caribou migration periods to alert drivers,” said BC Hydro spokesperson Jennifer Walker-Larsen. “The caribou signs will stay in place after construction of the Mica Projects to provide ongoing benefits to mountain caribou, a threatened species in B.C.”

Revelstoke Teachers’ Association calls for mediation The Revelstoke Teachers’ Association (RTA) on Friday called for mediation in their ongoing contract dispute with the BC Public School Employers’ Association (BCPSEA) and the province. The RTA issued a media release a day after Education Minister George Abbott said he would begin the process to bring about an end to year-long teachers contract negotiations. “Mediation would be a fair way to resolve the current dispute between the BCTF and BCPSEA,” says RTA President, Jennifer Wolney. The RTA called upon the province not to impose a contract through negotiation. “The BCTF is urging BCPSEA to accept the offer to mediate the dispute and the RTA has requested in writing that the Board of Education Trustees for Revelstoke support this action,” the RTA said in a media release. “If the provincial really wants to show respect for teachers then it needs to be willing to come to a negotiated fair and reasonable contract with the teachers of BC,” said RTA president Jennifer Wolney. “ Minister Abbot has repeatedly suggested that legislation would be used to impose and agreement and it seems that from the beginning the government has had no intention of respectfully bargaining a collective agreement with teachers.”

Capsule Comments With John Teed It has been over thirty years since human insulin has been available for diabetics. Before that, insulin was obtained from the pancreases of slaughtered cows and pigs. These insulins were not exactly the same as human insulin and did cause some adverse reactions in some diabetics. When human clinical trials are done on new medications, two groups of people are compared:

one takes the actual drug while the other group receives a placebo (a lookalike product that contains no drug). The larger the number of people studied, the more reliable the results are. Also, the drug group has to show a definite improvement over the placebo group otherwise the drug won’t be marketed. If you wake up in the morning with a sore or stiff neck, it could be due

to your pillow. Since we spend 6-8 hours a day on the pillow, make sure it’s the right one for you. There are many “therapeutic” pillows on the market. Some are shaped to support the neck better and keep the spine in alignment. It might be the answer. Two breeding grounds for bacteria are your computer keyboard and your bedtime pillow. Because hands transfer bacteria easily, keyboards

harbour lots of them. Giving them a quick wipe with a damp cloth will clear some away. As for the pillow, give it a good wash in the washing machine a couple times a year. In these days of fastpaced, computerized times, it’s nice to know you can drop into the pharmacy and speak directly to a pharmacist in person. It’s a good feeling for us too! We hope to see you visit our pharmacy soon.

The 2011 Heritage Home Awards were presented at the Revelstoke Museum and Archives this past Saturday. A total of four awards in three categories were presented by Mike Dragini, chair of the Community Heritage Commission. According to the City of Revelstoke website the responsibility of the Revelstoke Heritage Commission “is to advise City Council on those matters relating to the preservation and promotion of the built environment as well as the natural and cultural heritage of the community.” In the Residential Renovation category awards were given to Chris Johnston for work

done at 102 3rd Street East and to Paul and Eileen Sutherland for renovations at 917 2nd Street West. Accepting the award on behalf of the Sutherlands, who were out of town, was their tenant Rachel Kenward. “It’s a fun thing to do,” Johnston said of the renovation project. “It was just a matter of putting things back the way it was 100 years ago. It was a pleasure doing it.” The award for Residential Detail went to David and Leslie Savage for the work done at 111-5th Street East. Leslie was present to accept the award. Finally, the award for Residential Infill was presented to Lara Stovel for development at 404 Connaught Avenue. “This award is to encourage

people to add structures that compliment existing structures in town,” said Dragini. Stovel said both her family and the city had been particularly helpful as she underwent the project. “I really found the city planning office to be helpful,” she said. “They helped me throughout the process. Revelstoke Mayor Dave Raven was also present for the short awards ceremony. “It’s a big commitment for our community,” Raven said of the commitment to preserving heritage buildings. “It’s a big commitment from each of you.” The Heritage Awards were part of the BC Heritage Week events being held at the Revelstoke Museum.

Railroaders reflect on their colourful careers

Revelstoke Railway Museum event features firsthand stories from our railway history Jack. “There was the Regent Hotel, the Revelstoke Hotel, the King Eddy, the YMCA ... it was big. The firemen would come from out of town and stay at the YMCA. I’d have to call these people different places, they’d disappear. They’d allow me to go everywhere, I wasn’t even of age.” Jack recalls one particular individual from Golden who would often “come up fighting.” “Three times I went flying out into the hall,” Carten said. “The fourth time it didn’t happen again. I went in and hit him with a pillow.”


From left: Railroaders Les Handley (f), Warren Watson, Dennis Holdener and Jack Carten shared their stories as part of the Revelstoke Railway Museum presentation Railway Reflections: “And We Were Lucky!” The event was held at the museum on Saturday, February 25 as part of BC Heritage Week.

Bending the rules, close calls, late night runs, stories of frozen cats, Greenpeace protests, bomb threats and skiing across town to call out the crew. Those were some of the tales enjoyed by an audience at the Revelstoke Railway Museum this weekend as retired railroaders

gathered to share episodes from their colourful railway past. Former Railroaders Jack Carten, Warren Watson, Dennis Holdener and Les Handley shared their stories as part of the Railway Reflections: “And We Were Lucky” on Saturday. The entertaining event was held in conjunction with B.C. Heritage Week. Here, the men share the experience which stands

out most for them:

JACK CARTEN Jack spent almost 43 years working for CP Rail. He started as a call boy in 1943. His last trip was in September 1985. His family is from New Brunswick, but Jack was born in Revelstoke. “I was a call boy in 1943 I was working the midnight shift,” said

Warren is a third generation railroader. Both his father and grandfather worked for the railway. “As a conductor you get called to spend a lot of time on the railways,” Watson said. “A few years back we got called to Golden for a GPS balance. We figured we were getting called to some stupid job.” Warren explained that in the past balancing had been done by men running alongside the trains with crowbars. For this to happen the train had to slow down to between two and four miles per hour. For the GPS ballast to work the train needed to pick up speed to 20 miles per hour. To the men’s doubt and amazement, the GPS ballast worked. “We kind of had to eat a bit of crow on that one,” said Warren.


Dennis got his start working as a crew clerk in 1962. A true Revelstokian, Dennis was born at Queen Victoria Hospital. “It was the winter of 1971 or ‘72, about December 15th. We were called to go east,” begins one of Holdener’s tales. “We got to Albert Canyon ... it took us 12 or 13 hours to get to the west switch at Albert Canyon, we had dug out every switch. The next day coming west I remember as we come up the hill when we got to Stoney Creek we got stuck behind another westbound. We were there for a day and a half because a slide at Connaught had come down. At Stoney Creek we had a lot of time. About 12 hours in we started to look at the food and the cigarettes -- every one smoked in those days -- we divvied up the cigarettes, I think we got 16 apiece. There was so much snow you could jump off the box cars and go down eight feet.”

LES HANDLEY Les spent 40 years as a railroader. He now works shifts on the No. 5468 locomotive as a volunteer at the Revelstoke Railway Museum. “I was chosen as a fireman on the Governer General’s train that went from Sicamous to Kelowna and back. That was Vincent Massey (Governor General) in about 1950 or so.” *** Railway Reflections: “And We Were Lucky” was presented as part of the BC Heritage Week.

Ladies Ride an eye opener for mountain sled skills Revelstoke Snowmobile Club event this weekend will bring together women riders from Revelstoke and beyond, and highlight the growing number of women participating in the sport ALEX COOPER

When Kathy Burke brought her Polaris pro-RMK (Rocky Mountain King) in for detailing recently she asked, “Why are there no queens? Why is it always kings?” When she got it back she had a nice surprise, the ‘K’ was replaced with a ‘Q’, making it the Rocky Mountain Queen. Burke is the vice-president of the Revelstoke Snowmobile Club and the organizer of this Saturday’s Ladies Ride on Boulder Mountain. She was the first female President of the snowmobile club in more than 40 years of its existence and is a fixture of the Boulder Mountain parking lot - helping park cars every winter. “Every winter, I’m pretty well a landmark,” she told me over coffee at Tim Horton’s last week. “I enjoy it, I meet people from all over the world who come here to snowmobile.” Burke has been an active member of the Revelstoke snowmobiling scene almost since she moved here with her husband Scott and two sons 13 years ago. Before moving here they lived in Nanaimo where Scott worked for the railway. He and the boys had taken up snowmobiling and when he had the option of transferring anywhere in British Columbia, the family chose Revelstoke. “We heard this was the mecca, so we thought why not?” Burke said. “It was a nice place to raise your family and not a big city.” Her first winter here she stayed at home while the boys went out riding. By the time her second winter rolled around, she figured she must be missing out on something, so one day she went out for a ride on Boulder Mountain. It was a lot of fun, she said. “You make some really good friends between 5 and 8,000 feet.” “Now I think I’m the worst one of them all,” she jokes about the hours she spends sledding. A few years later she joined the snowmobile club, started attending meetings and got involved helping with different events. Burke’s favourite part about riding is the people she meets, she said. As she mentioned twice, “You make some really good friends between 5 and 8,000 feet.” The Revelstoke Snowmobile Club has more than 700 members this year making it the biggest in the province but Burke estimates that only about 50 of them are women. Still, she says more and more women are getting involved in the sport every year. The idea for a ladies ride in Revelstoke came about after her and Angela Threatful, the president of the Snowmobile Revel-

stoke Society, attended one at Hunters Range near Enderby, B.C. The first ride was held two years ago. Thirty women came out and she said it was an “eye-opener” to see the calibre of riders that attended. This year, the third for the ride, she is expecting 60 women to come out. The day begins at the Boulder Mountain parking lot, where the group goes for a ride together. They will then be split into groups based on ability levels, before meeting up again later for lunch. They’ll go for another ride in the afternoon before meeting up again for dinner at the Hillcrest. The dinner serves as a fundraiser for the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. There will be two film crews on hand and several photographers. Of the sixty women expected to come out, few are local, said Burke. She hopes more will this year. “It can be a good experience to see how other women

are riding to help build up their confidence level,” she said. “They can see what other women are doing to their machines, modifications for them to make it better to ride in the mountains. It’s not the same as trail riding. Meeting other women involved in the sport, “It’s a big confidence builder for us all.” I asked Burke if she felt intimidated her first time out, especially in such a male-dominated sport. She replied, saying she was out with good people that coached her and cheered her on. “Even if they did just bring me along for entertainment,” she laughed. It took her a few years to feel comfortable with mountain riding and she is hoping to get more women out. The Revelstoke Ladies Ride takes place on Saturday, Mar. 3. It starts at 8:30 a.m. at the Boulder Mountain Parking Lot. For more information contact Kathy Burke at 250-200-0165 or

Telemark racer Shane Landreville heads to World Cup races in France and Spain Camaraderie high in small but competitive field of World Cup telemark racing ALEX COOPER

Shane Landreville was the only Canadian at a recent World Cup Telemark race in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. While an ankle injury incurred during training several weeks ago prevented him from doing his best, he did come home having learned several things. “That I want to keep doing this!” he said while back in Revelstoke between races. “Definitely learning that I want to keep doing this and I want the sport to grow both

nationally and internationally.” Telemark racing is a small sport compared to its Alpine counterpart. It combines multiple elements of skiing – alpine gates, a skate-ski section and a jump. Landreville has been skiing since he was 18 months old, he said. He grew up in Fernie and was on the high school racing team. When he was 14, he learned how to telemark so they could go ski touring together. “That’s how it all began and then it progressed over the years,” he said. He said he loved the flow of telemark skiing, the fluid movements and the freedom he felt while doing it; and the camaraderie amongst telemarkers. Last year he sold all his alpine gear and made the complete switch to telemark skiing. His competitive side was still there so he decided to look into racing. “I still had a competitive edge, I still wanted to compete in something and I found out there’s such a think as telemark racing,” he said. “I had no idea. As soon as I found out, I thought, ‘That’s what I want to do.’” Last year he contacted Tele-

mark Canada and in the summer he trained with the U.S. team at Mt. Hood, Oregon. He moved to Revelstoke, partly because he thought

it would be a cool place to live and partly because the Revelstoke Ski Club said he could train with them.

Landreville’s first race was a regional race in Whitefish, Montana. Steamboat, from Feb. 13-18, was his first World Cup event. In the first race, the classic, he finished 24th out of 29 racers. His best result was 20th spot in the second of two spring races. “It was an absolutely incredible experience,” he said. “Getting to meet the other racers. Like I said about the camaraderie – I think its even stronger on the World Cup circuit. Everyone’s friendly, but competitive at the same time.” Landreville will be racing at Silver Star this weekend before heading off to Europe for World Cup races in France and Spain. When he gets back, he’ll head to a race in his hometown of Fernie. His goal is to crack the top 20. Beyond that, he wants to be on the podium at the 2015 World Championships. Because telemark racing is a small sport, there is little in the way of funding for it. Landreville has a few sponsors, but he still has to buy most of his equipment and fund his travel out of his own pocket. Most racers, aside from the top few, are in the same boat. “Everyone’s there becasue they want to be there,” he said. “They’re paying their own way, they want to compete, they love to do this.” You can follow Landreville’s exploits on his blog at landreville.

Grizzlies hiberate through first periods, down 0-2 to Sicamous Eagles AARON ORLANDO

The pickup truck that carries the Frisbee toss garbage can at the Revelstoke Forum explained the unusually quiet atmosphere in game one. It was covered by about 10 centimetres of snow -- probably nearly as much had fallen on Revelstoke since the puck was dropped in game one of the Revelstoke Grizzlies and the Sicamous Eagles best-of-seven playoff series. As a result of the extremely heavy snow, few Sicamous fans made the perilous drive to Revelstoke on Friday. The few who did were the only ones in the arena with anything to cheer about. The Revelstoke Grizzlies dropped their home-opener 5-1 to the underdog Sicamous Eagles, who seemed more pumped for the game than the hometown favourites. Eagle Connor Fynn earned the first star of the game and a hat-trick, including the first goal at 4:46 of the first frame. Fynn snapped in a pass from behind the net from Jagger Bowles. The Eagles dominated the first period, earning more chances in the offensive zone. They also held off the Grizzlies’ attack, which suffered on the rush and lacked the ability to put together meaningful possessions in the offensive zone. Revelstoke’s Kent Hendrickson drew a high sticking penalty at 8:14, leading to a power play goal by Brendan Devries. If they ever had any cheer in them, the third and final goal of the first period took it out of the respectablysized crowd at the Revelstoke Forum. Brayden Taekema dumped in a weak shot from just inside the red line. The bobbling puck was badly mishandled by netminder Conrad McMillian, who was under no pressure when he let it slide past him. McMillian looked like he was getting the hook when a timeout was called after the harmless shot fooled him, but he was left in. Connor Fynn netted his second goal 1:55 into the second when Tarren Cavanaugh fed Fynn a nearbreakaway pass that he put past McMillian five-hole. In the ensuing minutes, the Grizzlies put together a rally, coming up with their best chances against goalie Chris Drott. Drott played a solid game, including good positional play. If there was a weakness the Grizzlies didn’t exploit, it was more banging in front of the net and scooping up rebounds. The Grizzlies’ Michael Roberts nearly put one in just after the Eagles’ third goal, and Jordan Bledsoe just missed rebounding one off of Drott in a centring attempt from behind the net. Bledsoe followed up a few mo-

ments later with a drive to the net that led to a rebound, but his teammates couldn’t corral the bouncing puck for a goal. Grizzlie Riley Creighton also drove the net during the flurry of Grizzlies chances, but couldn’t put it past Drott. Marc Letourneau got the Grizzlies one-and-only goal halfway through the game, assisted by Michael Roberts and Lucas Hildebrand. A scrum at 11:59 of the second led to roughing calls against both teams and a slashing penalty against Reid Blinkhorn that put the Grizzlies a man down. Connor Fynn earned his hat-trick with the fifth and final goal of the game 18 seconds later. The Grizzlies rallied after the fifth goal, managing the gain the zone and establish their passing game a few times, generating solid scoring opportunities. They showed signs of a settled, purposeful game for a few brief minutes. The rally was stymied when Tye Sanford drew an unnecessary fourminute spearing penalty. Sanford sent a Sicamous player to the ice away from the play, but right in front of an official. The Grizzlies did kill the penalty, but it cost them their rally and the remainder of the period. There were a handful of scrums in the third, including slashing, crosschecking and roughing penalties, but there were no fights in the match.


The Revelstoke Grizzlies came out flat in the first period versus the Sicamous Eagles in game two, digging themselves a five-goal hole in the first 20 minutes. The first period Grizzlies flop was a repeat of game one of the best-of-seven playoff series. Brayden Taekema had two goals for the Sicamous Eagles in the first, while Connor Fynn, Matt Reed and Stewart Coyle netted one each. The Grizzlies’ dismal first period lasted for 19 seconds into the second, when Brendan Devries made it six

unanswered goals for the Eagles. The Grizzlies soon picked it up and put together their best period of hockey so far in the series. Tye Sanford put the Grizzlies on the board at 3:08 of the second, assisted by Tyler Reay. The goal gave the approximately 360 spectators something to cheer about. The Grizzlies continued to build momentum as the period progressed, pouring in shots, including lots of near misses from in close. Braeden Monk just missed a rebound attempt from close in a moment before a high-stick from Eagles’ Brad Crump caught Monk in the face, earning the Grizzlies a four-minute advantage. Marc Letourneau converted the penalty after he put a rebound in at 12:35. The crowd responded to the goal, and were rewarded under a minute later when Austin Donaldson scored, assisted by Michael Roberts and Marc Letourneau. Donaldson was again assisted by Michael Roberts with just 55 seconds left, putting the Grizzlies within two. The Eagles didn’t get many quality chances in the second; their twogoal lead looked tenuous. Kyle Schwartz scored for Revelstoke at 14:55 of the third to bring it within one. But the Grizzlies had difficulty continuing their momentum in the third against a regrouped Eagles team with a new strategy. The Eagles pressured the puck carrier early, and stepped up the physical play considerably, following their checks through. The Grizzlies had trouble moving the puck forward and putting passing plays together. Both teams had good chances through the third, but the Grizzlies couldn’t convert another one to pull beside Sicamous. Two late Sicamous empty-net goals padded out the score to an 8-5 final. Games three and four are on Monday and Tuesday nights in Sicamous. Game five is scheduled for Thursday night at 7 p.m. at the Revelstoke Forum.

Revelstoke MX rider Skyller Archer on the rise No. 245 Skyller Archer is rising fast in the motocross racing world, jumping quickly into the intermediate ranks and earning a 2nd place finish at a Chilliwack Arenacross race


Revelstoke motocross rider Skyller Archer, 16, is drawing attention, getting great results and moving up in the motocross rankings. Skyller came in second for the Arenacross Intermediate 250cc at

races in early February in Chilliwack’s Heritage Park. It was his first experience racing in the indoor arena format. Archer is approaching his third season in the Canadian Motosport Racing Corporation (CMRC) circuit outdoor series, which includes all of B.C. minus Vancouver and Vancouver Island. The CMRC se-

ries is the biggest in the province. Skyller has done two full seasons on the CMRC circuit. Intermediate racers hold a pro-amateur license that enables them to race in professional races.

Archer started riding when he was four, joining his older brother Devon on rides at the old track in the industrial zone. His family has been involved with local motocross for three generations.

His father Terry is the vice-president of the Revy Riders, the local riding association that operates the new Revelstoke Motocross Skyller, page 19

Revelstoke Rod & Gun Club honours Vera Aura Owner of Johnnie’s Tackle set to retire 48 years after opening Victoria Road store. Club thanks Aura for over 30 years of service to the Rod & Gun Club AARON ORLANDO

The Revelstoke Rod & Gun Club honoured the best fishermen and hunters at their Saturday banquet, but they reserved a special honour for longtime volunteer and club member Vera Aura. Vera Aura and her late husband Johnnie opened Johnnie’s Tackle in 1964 and the fishing and hunting supplies store has been a Revelstoke fixture ever since. Revelstoke Rod & Gun Club secretary Gail Ferguson delivered a speech in honour of Aura to the well-over 400 people in attendance on Saturday night. Ferguson said Aura was planning to retire soon, and this banquet may be her last as the operator of the store. She thanked Aura for all her years of service, including selling tickets for the annual awards banquet for about 30 years. “Vera’s is also a place where we head when we’ve lost our husband’s favourite fish hook and pray the whole way down Victoria Road that she has one hanging on the wall,” Ferguson said. “If by chance she doesn’t, she’ll order one in to make sure we can replace it. Not that this has ever happened to me personally, but I have heard it happens to some wives,” Ferguson joked. “Earlier this year, Vera shared with me that she’s thinking of retiring Dawson Caponero took home the junior 1st place Grizzly Bear and 2nd place Whitetail trophies. He’s joined by sometime probably in the not too distant future and taking some well de- father Danny Caponero, who presented awards on behalf of the Revelstoke Rod & Club. Aaron Orlando/Revelstoke Times Review served time for herself,” Ferguson told the audience. “Not knowing when that might happen, we would have been negligent had we not as a club taken this opportunity to very publicly thank Vera for all the work over the years she has done for us.” Ferguson continued: “Vera, my master ticket seller, thank you so much for being our source of fishing supplies and fishing stories. Thank you for weighing all those hundreds of fish. Thank you for the thousands of memberships you have sold for us and also for the tens of thousands of banquet tickets you have sold with a “have a good time” wish. Thank you for always giving us a great deal, even when we don’t expect it, and thank you for just being the wonderful, generous person that you are.” Several dignitaries sat at the head table, including Mayor David Raven and MP David Wilks. In a short speech Wilks predicted that the federal gun registry would “be gone in three weeks.” Several sportsmen and sportswomen had standout seasons, taking home several trophies.

Battersby’s Plumbers are 2012 Revelstoke Men’s League Champs The Battersby’s Plumbers were down 4-3 versus the Regent Royals with less than two minutes to play. Zac Jenne scored the late goal that pushed the final into overtime. In OT, No. 14 Corey Beisel was the hero for the Plumbers, skating the puck down the right wing on a two-on-one play. Beisel forced the defender to guard the pass and managed to get in close before snapping in the game winner. The Sunday, Feb. 26 final was very entertaining, including scuffles, a penalty shot and lots of verbal sparring on the ice. Pictured here are the 2012 Revelstoke Men’s League Champions Battersby Plumbers: Front row (l-r): Matt Meulendyk, Brent Stevenson and Corey Beisel.

Drop the pretense, Aries. Your body language is giving you away. Say what’s on your mind and you’ll be surprised at what happens next.

Try as you might, Taurus, you won’t be able to fool others, much less yourself, for long. Face up to your limitations, work within them and all will go well.

Gracious Gemini. You give, and you give, and you give some more, but these days, it seems like no one is giving back. Don’t let that stop you—you’re making a real difference.

Pay them no heed, Cancer. Keep pursuing your idea, and you will prove to those naysayers that you’re on to something great. An order is completed.

Caution, Libra. You’re veering off course. Take steps now to get back on track or prepare to suffer the consequences. A sporting event takes September 23– an unexpected turn.

October 22 You’re the comeback kid this week, Leo. You manage to finish all of those tasks gone sour and take on more than your fair share of new responsibilities.

Your genius side kicks in, and suddenly you’ve got the answers for everything. Enjoy the accolades, Virgo. It’s your turn to shine. An invite makes you giddy.

Kyle Buhler wins Hunter Sportsman of the Year

Times Review editor top-3 finalist for two Ma Murray newspaper awards ALEX COOPER

Aaron Orlando, editor of the Revelstoke Times Review, has been nominated as a top-three finalist for two 2012 Ma Murray Community Newspaper Awards. Orlando, the editor of the newspaper since August 2008, was nominated for the John Collinson Memorial Award for Investigate Journalism and the Neville Shanks Memorial Award for Historical Writing. The Ma Murray awards honour the best in community newspapers throughout British Columbia and the Yukon. They will handed out on April 14 in Richmond, B.C. For the investigative journalism award, Orlando was nominated for a

series of articles that appeared in 2011, starting with a story that appeared in the July 20, 2011, issue of the Times Review headlined, Forests ministry knew of conditions in squalid camps; workers not yet paid. The articles revealed that a group of silviculture workers who lived in horrible conditions at bush camps near Revelstoke had still not been paid nearly a year after the abuses were discovered. He also reported the government knew of the conditions in the camps but had not acted effectively on the reports until the story broke in the media. “This story’s not over,” he said. “We continue to follow criminal court proceedings here in Revelstoke. The BC Coroners Service tells me the autopsy report into the death of Khaira Enterprises employee Santokh Kooner is due

in weeks.” Orlando was nominated in the historical writing category for his article about a meteorite that crashed near Revelstoke in 1965. When a report was published last March that the meteorite might contain signs of extra-terrestrial life, he went into the archives to explore the littleknown history of the meteorite. “I had fun with this story,” Orlando said. “I’d heard of the Revelstoke meteorite before, but not much was known. Suddenly, a scientist is saying it is an extremely rare type of meteorite linked to evidence that alien life had been proven? It’s the biggest story there is – I had to bite.” A full list of nominees can be found at the B.C. and Yukon Community Newspapers Associations website at

Skyller Archer headed to California for training ahead of 2012 season from page 10 Track on Westside Road. He helped build the current track, and his father before him helped build the old one. The track has been a big boost. “Everyday after school,” he said. They also built a small arena-cross track on private property above Columbia Park. Skyller said he committed to the sport seriously this year when he moved up to the intermediate pro-am class. Skyller is one of the younger riders in the intermediate level, which includes riders in their 20s. He’s integrated new facets into his training, included increased weightlifting and training as well as a nutrition regime. “I just got moved up to intermediate,” Skyller said. “I wanted to see how good I could do, putting in all of the effort.”

Archer is heading to Riverside, California in March for a training series. There’s a cluster of about 10 tracks in the area where professional riders converge for spring training sessions. Skyller’s mentor will accompany him to California. Williams Lake prorider Brock Hoyer is coming off of Canadian Arenacross championships in Canada in both engine classes. He’s a team-mate, a coach and a mentor to Skyller. Archer is currently a student at RSS and will be putting in lots of homework while at training in California. His amateur series begins at the beginning of April when he returns from California. This year he plans to race in the western series, but next year he’ll make the jump to eastern races as well. Archer is heading to the televised Canadian Nationals pro series in June.

He’ll be racing against sponsored factory riders who roll up in factory trucks and trailers plastered with their sponsors’ logos. Top American riders can make in the millions on the circuit. Archer also stands to take home prize money depending on his finish. What motivates him? “Work hard, go to the gym and ride lots,” Archer said. “Beat other people.” His father Terry Archer says his son’s fast ascent in the rankings is remarkable. “The majority of the kids are 18 to 19 years old,” father Terry says. “Skyller’s bounced through that quick.” Riders must accumulate enough points to move up to the next ranking. The bikes cost about $18,000 each with discounts. To date, his sponsors include Fox Shox, Fox Gear & Clothing, T Archer Ltd., Spectra Power Sports, Shift, Apex Granite, MX1

Skyller Archer races to second at an Arenacross event in Chilliwack in early February. Graig Duce photo

Canada, Ogio, CTI Pro Wheel and team sponsor Kawasaki Canada. His ambition is to move up to the

pro rankings. What’s the timeline on that goal? “Hopefully two years,” Archer says.
