Teachers striking across province By Tom Fletcher Black Press

The B.C. Teachers’ Association has served strike notice for Monday through Wednesday after teachers across the province endorsed the option in a provincewide vote. The union was required to give two school days’ notice before being in a legal strike position, under a Labour Relations Board ruling on essential services that allows for up to three consecutive days of full strike action next week.

US ACT T N FREE CO A R O T! AY F TOD TER TES A W

Education Minister George Abbott said Thursday that schools will be open, and it’s up to parents if they want to send children to school. The LRB ruling prohibits picket lines, allowing unionized support staff to go to work. Administrators will supervise students, but normal instruction will not take place. The B.C. government began debate Thursday on legislation that would extend the current teacher pay and beneÂżts for another six months, while a mediator works with the BCTF and the B.C. Public School Employers’ Association in an effort to Âżnd common ground on class sizes, special needs support and other issues. Nearly 28,000 BCTF members voted yes to the strike option out of the 32,209 who voted Tuesday and Wednesday, after the B.C. government tabled legislation to impose a “cooling-off periodâ€? until the end of August and impose heavy Âżnes on the union and

its members for strikes during that time. Nearly 9,000 teachers did not vote, and more than 10 per cent or 4,263 voted against strike action. Abbott and Premier Christy Clark would not specify how long the government would wait before passing that legislation, but it likely won’t be in time to prevent a three-day strike. Clark said she wants to give the union time to “climb down from the cliff� after seven months of working to rule, refusing to complete report cards and other non-essential duties. Opposition leader Adrian Dix said the NDP will oppose Bill 22 in the legislature. Dix called for “real mediation� but refused to say if he would support a raise for teachers. BCTF president Susan Lambert has dismissed the legislation and restrictions on mediation to work within the government’s two-year “net zero� wage mandate as “bullying tactics.� She said an extra $30 million fund for special needs

support this year, on top of more than $800 million currently budgeted, is a “crumbâ€? that won’t even cover inĂ€ation. “The results of our province-wide vote are strong evidence of the unity and determination of BCTF members in rejecting this government’s provocative and damaging legislation,â€? Lambert said. School District 5 notice: A release from School District 5 states that teachers will not be reporting from Monday, March 5 to Wednesday March 7. “While school facilities will remain open under the supervision of school district staff, we will be unable to provide students with instruction or appropriate supervision during this period of job action. We are therefore requesting that parents keep their children at home on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday (March 5, 6, and 7),â€? stated the release.

Canadian Federation of University Women 2012 Woman of the Year Award

Sister Nina Glinski CND A person who goes above and beyond for the needs of others

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Annie Yip, (left) a resident of the Rocky Mountain Care Centre in Fernie, being cared for by Sister Nina Glinski, CND. Ms. Yip died this past year. Submitted The 28th Annual Woman of the Year Award presented by the Cranbrook Club of the Canadian Federation of University Women will be awarded to Sister Nina Glinski, CND (Congregation of Notre Dame). This year, the club received 3 very well presented nominations, 2 of which will be carried forward to 2013. We also had nominations from 2011 and 2010 that we could consider if the committee had not voted 100% for Sister Nina. “This might be confusing at a glance,” stated Henley who chaired the Woman of the Year Committee, “because we (CFUW) are non-political and non-religious, yet we are honouring a Sister. Some of the reasons she was selected are because of her huge impact on everyone and anyone she has met, regardless of race, creed or social status, her ability to teach and create teachers, to instill self-respect in all she touched. Although a Roman Catholic Sister, Nina did not exclude anyone from her care and compassion. Nor does Nina wear robes, but rather looks like any area woman except for the constant glow that radiates from her. She was so open and trusted by everyone who met her, that hearing her speak at several Cranbrook and Kootenay area churches was common. One of the nominators, Arlene Davis said this about Nina, “As a teacher she

educates not only in the academic sense, but in the area of human development.” Mary Fiorentino, the head of the nomination committee for Nina wrote “I could ¿ll pages telling of what Nina promoted in the community to enhance the lives of women, but I want to talk about Nina, the person. It is because of whom she is that she is able to ful¿ll the mission for which she came to Marywood Retreat Centre as co-director in the fall of 1996. She is an open, honest and trustworthy person; a born leader, charismatic and a great mentor, empowering others

by drawing forth their giftedness. She invites, inspires, challenges and encourages everyone to teach and carry on some of the programmes she initiates. Nina is a great listener, very approachable and has a wonderful sense of humour. She treats all as equals and with dignity.” She is the true meaning of a teacher. The most moving nomination letter came from Audrey Francis who ¿rst met Nina in October of 2003 at an Aboriginal Support Group. Mary, a victim of the Residential School era was extremely apprehensive of not only joining the ASG, but meeting a

Nun due to her horri¿c experiences as a child. Much to her surprise she observed “this down to earth woman” who spoke of her experiences that brought her to the decision to become a sister. Audrey said “Wow!” and the beginnings of a long, trusting friendship was born. “Nina was there for me in the darkest of times in my work of learning to let go and move forward”, said Audrey. “Not once did Nina ever judge or distance

The wizard and the captain La Dolce Vita By Lorne Eckersley

The wizard named Oz and Captain Slow. It seems like a pretty weird pairing for a show about wine, but a sure pairing for entertainment. At least that was my line of thinking when I walked out of Creston Public Library with a DVD set of Oz & James’ Big French Wine Adventure. For the unniitiated, Oz Clarke is the British expert voice on wine (well, along with Jancis Robinson) and James May, aka Captain Slow, is one of the trio who have made the Top Gear automobile series a cult television favourite. The premise of Series One, six halfhour episodes, was to have Clarke educate the beer-drinking May in the joys of French wine and winemaking. Unfortunately, too many television series seem to be made by the same tiny group of people who assume that viewers need to be treated like half-wits. It is, it seems, not enough just to provide information in clever and innovative ways. Instead, drama and tension have to be introduced, especially just before commercial breaks. That’s why restaurant makeover shows always include last-minute discoveries of faulty wiring, why home reno shows always include needs for hardwood Àooring, which has to be installed before tomorrow’s open house and, well the list is endless, isn’t it? So, in Oz and James’ Big French Wine Adventure, the pair climb into a vehicle selected by the notoriously slow

driving May (a Jaguar XJS, which will inevitably break down) and head out into the countryside of France where, incongruously, they will spend time sleeping in a small tent. Of course, it is a struggle to put up the tent, the weather turns rainy and the unlikely pair get on each others’ nerves at every turn. May doesn’t get, at least at the outset, the aromas and Àavours about which James waxes enthusiastically. So James makes a habit of stopping the car to pick plants or get May down on his hands and knees to smell a fresh cow pie, all with the goal of educating the country bumpkin’s dull senses. In the ¿rst episode, James evens ¿nds a tiny winery that still uses the foot stomping method to crush its grapes. The makers claimed that the traditional way is the best way to extract juice and it was at that point that I got seriously annoyed with these manipulative little moments of television. Maybe the winery does use that particular practice, but it would only be a schtick to set itself apart from the competition because I am certain that the still relatively low tech preference for air bladder crushing is superior to foot stomping every conceivable way. But a scene showing two dramatically different adult males getting climbing barefooted into a vat makes for better television, doesn’t it? In the end, I am left with the thought that the Oz and James series might hold appeal to people who like their entertainment on the light side. But viewers who

really enjoy wine and winemaking will ¿nd it trite and the “made for television” moments of conÀict between the two stars won’t make the viewing experience any more edifying. ***** On a completely different note, I went home from work one day recently with the idea that I wanted to make a snack that would also serve as dessert for a few days. My thoughts ¿rst turned to brownies but then lemon Àavours came to mind. A quick trip to the store and I was back in the kitchen, preparing a shortbread base for lemon bars. I used Ina Garten’s recipe from the Food Network web site, drawn to it perhaps because Garden’s cooking show has never resorted to injecting arti¿cial tension into its episodes. Instead, the lovely and soft-spoken host is simply allowed to demonstrate her passion for good food and generally simple recipes. What makes the recipe a standout is the addition of lemon zest from 4-6 lemons and a full cup of fresh-squeezed lemon juice into the ¿lling. The result was outstanding. Admittedly, lemon bars aren’t particularly easy to pair with wines, with the tartness and acidity making them a hard match. But I did think (but didn’t try it) that a chilled Moscato might work quite nicely. The more obvious choice would have been an icy shot of Limoncello, the Italian liqueur that is often served as a postprandial to aid with digestion.

BC Hydro amends wildlife committee

PHOTOSUBMITTED

East Kootenay MLA Bill Bennett MLA Bill Bennett announced upcoming changes in the Legislature this week to BC Hydro’s Columbia Basin Fish and Wildlife Compensation Steering Committee thanks to his continued efforts in collaboration with Kootenay residents and B.C. cabinet ministers. “BC Hydro’s announcement sent shock

waves through the Kootenay conservation community, where ¿sh and wildlife is a predominate, shared, cultural value; the people of the region do not take kindly to these kinds of surprises,” said Bill Bennett, East Kootenay MLA. “Now, here we are ¿ve months later and I am happy to report that, due to the commit-

www.kootenayadvertiser.com A7 ment made to this ¿le by Ministers of Energy and Mines, Environment, and Forests, Lands and Natural Resources, a comprehensive series of community engagement meetings have been set up by BC Hydro across the whole region.” Background information: • In October 2011 BC Hydro announced a restructuring of its environmental department that reduced the number of staff supporting the Fish and Wildlife Compensation Program in the Columbia Basin (Nelson and Cranbrook), the Peace region (Prince George) and in Burnaby. There was no change to funding levels (approximately $8 million per year). • The model was in place to provide regional programs to conserve and restore ¿sh and wildlife habitats negatively impacted by dams and energy projects. • Funds are used to conserve and restore ¿sh and wildlife habitats affected by the creation of BC Hydro dams. BC Hydro funds the program and partners with the Provincial Government and the Depart-

ment of Fisheries and Oceans to manage the conservation activities. • Since 1988, BC Hydro has invested over

$100 million to three regional compensation programs for more than 700 projects. • The changes an-

nounced in October 2011 meant eleven program staff would be laid off by the end of the ¿scal year (March 2012).

Some affected staff will ¿nd work elsewhere in BC Hydro or with the Province.

CBT looking to reward volunteerism Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) is accepting applications for two of its community service award programs. Valued at $2,000 and based on

volunteer service rather than academic standing, there are up to 66 awards to be given out. College Community Service Awards (CCSA)

www.kootenayadvertiser.com A9 are intended to beneÂżt Basin college students who plan to further their education. Youth Community Service Awards (YCSA) are given to graduating high school students. Deadlines are March 15 and April 13. And more details can be found online at www.

cbt.org/programs. One of last yearĂ­s CCSA recipients spoke of the beneÂżt to her family: “I am very grateful to receive this award from Columbia Basin Trust. I am a single mother of two, and a full-time nursing student. The award is a

great help to my family, and is very much appreciated,� said Melissa Monsen, nursing student at the College of the Rockies. Twenty-one awards are offered to Basin residents attending Selkirk College, College of the Rockies and the

Revelstoke Centre of the Okanagan College for their use at a college or university of their choice. Forty-Âżve awards are offered to high school grads from a Basin high school, alternate school or other institution that grants Ministry of Edu-

cation-recognized grad diplomas. For more information on the award or application process, contact Michelle dĂ­Entremont at mdentremont@cbt. org or 1.800.505.8998.

A huge discovery that measures less than two milimetres across By Lesley Marian Neilson As much as it seems that we humans have left no stone unturned in our explorations of this planet, it turns out Mother Nature is still harbouring a few secrets. A trio of scientists from the Royal BC Museum has discovered a rare spider near Columbia

Lake in the East Kootenay – the Âżrst recorded Âżnding of this species in Canada. “It’s a very small and poorly known member of the cobweb spider family,â€? said Dr. Robb Bennett “As far as I can tell, only four or so specimens are known to science, including the one we found.â€? It’s hard to imagine

5C@#M<-<?T *N$JHDIBOJ4DU@:JP6K

Are you tired of feeling saggy, lumpy, pinched or strained? Well youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not alone. As youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve probably seen on Oprah or read in womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s magazines, over 80 per cent of all women wear the wrong size bra. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where Barb Chapman, the Bra Lady, comes in. Chapman is coming to C R A N B R O O K O N W E D N E S D AY M A R C H 1 4 to outďŹ t

you with the best possible bra for your body. Chapman said she will be seeing clients on a one-on-one basis, explaining the beneďŹ ts of good bras and measuring their bodies properly.

how these biologists even spotted the wee creature. Measuring only 1.5 milimetres in length, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d need a keen eye to Âżnd this spider. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was wearing a headband magniÂżer like the kind a dentist uses,â&#x20AC;? said Bennet, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but the others just use their naked eye. You tune in to the search image â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the pattern and texture you expect to see when you turn over a rock or pull apart a rotting log. Anything out of the ordinary, especially if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moving, will jump out at you.â&#x20AC;?

The biologists carefully combed through leaves, fallen logs and other natural debris littering the ground in search of bugs, particularly tiny spiders. Most of the specimens gathered that day were relatively uninteresting, but among the collection was a small, drab spider that sparked considerable interest despite its ho-hum appearance. IdentiÂżed as Dipoena provalis, the spider is known from only three other locations in North America â&#x20AC;&#x201C; two near Salt

Lake City, Utah, and one near La Grande, Oregon. Dr. Bennett and his colleagues Claudia and Darren Copley found the spider on Marion Creek Benchlands, a newlyestablished conservation area owned by the Nature Conservancy of Canada. Perched on the hills above Columbia Lake, near the town of Fairmont Hot Springs, the property encompasses grasslands, open forests and wetlands, and is used by elk, deer and bear, among other, much

smaller, wildlife. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We knew Marion Creek Benchlands was an important wildlife corridor for large animals that cross the valley, as well as endangered species such as badger and Lewisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s woodpecker,â&#x20AC;? said Hillary Page, a Stewardship Coordinator with the Nature Conservancy of Canada. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But when we went in and did our biological survey we discovered so much more.â&#x20AC;? Other rare species found on the property include two provincially

at-risk plants and a nationally-threatened Âżsh species. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This really afÂżrms the importance of conservation science,â&#x20AC;? said Page. The spider is now enshrined in the Royal BC Museumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collection. The Nature Conservancy of Canada is currently working to protect another property across Columbia Lake from Marion Creek Benchlands.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most women just want to ďŹ nd a good-ďŹ tting bra thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not uncomfortable,â&#x20AC;? Chapman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize is that a good support bra is also important for blood circulation and enhanced lymph drainage.â&#x20AC;? Chapman has over 200 bra sizes available for ordering, ranging from 30AA to 52KK. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll ďŹ t somewhere between those sizes. She offers these questions for women to ask themselves: t%PZPVIBWFBESBXFSGVMMPGCSBTCVUOPOFUIBUmU comfortably? t%PFTZPVSCVTUMJOFiCPVODFwXIFOZPVXBMLXIJMFXFBSJOHZPVS â&#x20AC;&#x153;everydayâ&#x20AC;? bra? t%PZPVPWFSnPXUIFDVQPGZPVSCSB t%PZPVSCSBTUSBQTTMJQPGGZPVSTIPVMEFSTPSEJHJOUPZPVS shoulders leaving red and painful marks? t%PFTZPVSCSBSJEFVQJOUIFCBDLCFDBVTFZPVUJHIUFOUIFTUSBQT to give you added support? t)BWFZPVFWFSCFHVOBOFYFSDJTFDMBTTPOMZUPESPQPVUCFDBVTF your breasts ached from lack of support while jumping or running? If you answer yes to any of these you are in need of a new bra, and a custom one could be the way to go.

Congratulations!

natural health

by Trent Brereton, ND

A Paradigm Crisis How does it make sense that we routinely use radiation to detect breast cancer when the very method of detection increases the risk for the disease it is designed to find? How has it come to pass that we have made menopause a disease when it is a natural process that women have been transitioning for millennia? Is it appropriate that we medicate our children when they have a hard time sitting still in a classroom? Modern medicine and technology have greatly benefited all of us and I consider myself lucky to have access to it. It does seem, however, that we have gone too far and it is time for a critical look at balancing our infatuation with gadgets and drugs with what is best for the health of the person, community and the planet. Ever since the discovery of antibiotics our medical system has been hooked on finding the next great drug or piece of equipment that will stop disease. One only has to watch television for 30

minutes to see any number of promised miracle treatments for everything from cholesterol to impotence to insomnia. This would all be fine and dandy if it worked. Sadly, diabetes, heart disease and cancer are all on rise, despite ever increasing medical expenditures, complex procedures and new fangled drugs. In fact, there is strong evidence suggesting the use of pharmaceutical medication is one of the leading causes or mortality and morbidity. In our frantic search, we have forgotten the basics: 80% of all disease is rooted in diet and lifestyle. What you eat, how you move and how you live your life is the single most powerful predictor of how healthy or sick you will be. I am not suggesting throwing the baby out with the bath water, only that it is up to each of us, as consumers of medicine, to take personal responsibility for our health and seek treatment that treats the underlying cause.

Thanks to the South Country community; all the logging businesses, stores, mills, and the radio station for advertising the bene¿t. A big thanks to my brother Gary and sister in law Darlene for making the bene¿t a great success, my mom and dad and the rest of my family for helping out. To all the people who donated to the auction, Hosmer Fire department, the band Steel Wheels for donating their time to make sure everyone had a good time.

Obituaries OBITUARY

MacKay: Margaret Sephorah (nee Corbett) Jan. 16, 1932 – Feb. 26, 2012 With loved ones at her side, Margaret passed away peacefully at her home on Sunday, February 26th at the age of 80 years. Margaret is survived by her children: Alan MacKay, Heather (Doug) Henwood, Robert (Darlene) MacKay, and Gordon MacKay (Jo-Anne Falkiner), 8 grandchildren: Chris (Bobbie), Allison, Julia, Jennifer, Kelly, George, Lewis and Duncan, 2 great grandchildren: Scott and Tyson, and siblings Bill (Bev) Corbett, Len (Eva) Corbett, Catherine Corbett, Mary Powers and Alan (Evelyn) MacKay as well as many nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her loving husband Bill, her parents Len and Sephorah Corbettt and her brothers Pat, Herb, Bud and David. In order to financially assist her family, Margaret left school at the young age of 16. She worked at the Teakettle Inn in Calgary and then in the Staff House in Seebe where she met Bill MacKay. The couple married in 1953 and Margaret’s life remained busy as she raised their 4 children and enjoyed curling in many bonspiels. In 1968 Bill’s job took the family to Bridge River, a BC Hydro Facility. While in Bridge Margaret took up oil painting, a talent she enjoyed very much. By 1972 the MacKay’s had relocated to Cranbrook and it was there that Margaret added water color painting to her repitoire and became involved with the Arts Council. She was also a member of the Catholic Women’s League for over 50 years; her faith sustaining her through many difficult times. Shortly after the death of her beloved husband in 1987, Margaret moved to Sparwood so she could be closer to her daughter Heather and her family. While in Sparwood she continued to paint and enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren. In 2004 Margaret moved into Lilac Terrace where she lived until her passing. Memorial Services were held at Cherished Memories “Serenity Chapel” on Wednesday, February 29th with Pastor Dennis Williamson officiating. Memorial tributes may be made in Margaret’s name to the Sisters of Notre Dame Prayer House. Arrangements entrusted to Cherished Memories Funeral Services Ltd.

Time to start thinking about preparing the cottage Opening a summer cottage or cabin involves a few essential jobs if you want to have a care-free summer. The ¿rst step is to start up all your electric appliances. Check over the outside wiring, looking for rodent

chew-marks, and activate the main breaker, ensuring ¿rst that the secondary breakers are all closed. Switch on the secondary breakers one at a time, checking each one individually before plugging in your appliances.

If your cottage is powered with propane, check the state of the tank, the main pipe, and any secondary connections. The idea is to detect any leaks by smelling for gas. If everything appears to be in order, ensure that

The early-season work you do on your cottage will pay dividends as the weather gets warmer. the vent is not blocked by a bird’s nest before starting your heater. Next, check your water heater. Make sure you ¿ll it with water before making sure it works, otherwise you will burn out the heating element. Do this by turning on the hot water tap at a sink and waiting for the water to run before starting your water heater. The next step is to check the general state of the cottage, from the roof to the foundations. Look for any-

thing that needs to be repaired: roof shingles, gutters, sof¿ts, paint, hinges, door handles, etc. Take this opportunity to check for vermin or small animals that have gotten inside the cottage through the chimney, the basement, or cracks in the walls. Check any outbuildings as well. If you have a swimming pool at your cottage, start it up as soon as possible so that bacteria and algae will not develop when the weather turns hot.
