Two historic hotels torched in Grand Forks arson spree KARL YU West Kootenay Advertiser

The historic Grand Forks Hotel has been completely destroyed and the landmark Winnipeg Hotel damaged due to a pair of fires early on March 7 in Grand Forks, B.C. According to Boundary Regional RCMP, police were responding to a

report of a fire at the Grand Forks Hotel at 3 a.m. when a fire was detected at the Winnipeg Hotel on Central Avenue in Grand Forks. Police consider both cases of arson due to the suspicious nature of both fires. A man has been charged in relation to two hotel fires that occurred in

Grand Forks, B.C. on March 7. According to Grand Forks RCMP’s Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison, 47-year-old Grand Forks resident Christopher James Cusack has been charged with two counts of arson endangering human life in relation to the fires at the Grand Forks Hotel and Winnipeg Hotel.

Age-friendly event ahead SUBMITTED

RDCK makes training for emergencies a priority SUBMITTED

Last week the Regional District organized Incident Command System (ICS) training for the local area. Participants from the Town of Creston, Nelson Police, RCMP, RDCK, Nelson Search & Rescue, Passmore & Balfour Fire Departments, Ministry of Transportation and the Ministry of Forests, Lands & Natural Resource Operations took part. Training together

allows individuals to get to know each other and enhances the understanding of everyone’s roles. “In a wildfire event,” says RDCK Chair John Kettle, “we might have all of these people represented in the Local Authority Emergency Operations Centre.” The incident command system is a model for command, control, and coordination of a response at an emergency site. Originally designed for managing wild-

fire, the system has evolved into a flexible all hazard system that can be scaled to the size of the emergency. It also provides a common response framework suitable to any size of incident. That means that if there are multiple agencies such as police and fire both responding to the incident, they will have a common understanding of who is taking on what role. The incident command system train-

ing is one part of emergency operations training that the RDCK conducts for regional emergency preparedness. Earlier this year, emergency staff participated in an earthquake exercise and a drill at the Emergency Operations Centre. The ICS 300 training was jointly sponsored by the Regional District of Central Kootenay and the Government of Canada through a grant from the Joint Emergency Preparedness Program.

Seniors grant approved for Fruitvale Greater Trail Briefs A seniors’ coordinator position has been created at the Village of Fruitvale to handle activity and information as it pertains to elders in the area. The village recently was approved in February for an Agefriendly Community Projects and Planning grant from the Ministry of Health and received the full award of $20,000. The grant, expected to help support older residents in staying healthy and active in the community, was accepted by the village at its regular council meeting on Monday. However, the coordinator contract position has not been filled, as advertising for the job will occur this week with intention to staff before March 30. “I will be meeting with Kiro Wellness Centre who wish to work collaboratively with the village on this initiative,” Fruitvale chief administrative officer Lila Cresswell told council. The village was one of 52 B.C. municipal governments to re-

ceive an age-friendly grant. Examples of agefriendly community changes include widening sidewalks, installing benches, maximizing green space, and making information, programs and services more accessible to the older population. Youth council taking shape A youth centre and programs to fill it are on the radar of a newly formed Youth Advisory Council for the Beaver Valley. The fledgling council arose out of a Columbia Basin Trust (CBT)-sponsored forum in mid February in Fruitvale. Over 60 people showed up for the forum, with a healthy contingent of youth in attendance (as required by the CBT). Columbia Youth Community Development Centre

(YCDC) coordinator Morgan-River Jones, who helped facilitate the forum, said the key issues of space — call it a youth centre — for youth where they could hang out and have programs running from, and an increase in youth-oriented programming, were paramount. The Youth Advisory Council (YAC) will now investigate the opportunity to have different kinds of services and events delivered in the Beaver Valley itself. The committee will also be tasked to draw in more youth from the Beaver Valley. “And when they really represent the youth voice they will move forward and try to make some of these priorities happen,” said Jones.

Selkirk nursing students help promote health with annual health fairs for all ages For the fifth year in a row, first-year students in the Selkirk College/University of Victoria Bachelor of Science in Nursing Program will be helping to improve the health of KootenayBoundary residents, by offering free health fairs for all ages in the region. Thirty two students from the program will be presenting at the health fairs on a range of health issues,

including: child safety, dementia, women’s sexual health, head injuries and safety, mental health, firstaid and blood pressure awareness. Those attending will have the opportunity to circulate through various stations and learn about all the information being presented. “We had students do some brainstorming on what topics might be pertinent,� explains Nursing Facilitator, Joanne Van der Ham. “We were trying to look for topics that are relevant across the life span. We wanted to put out topics that would be

interesting to young families, older adults, as well as adolescents. We also wanted our students to pick areas that interest them.� While they provide health information to communities, the health fairs are also very much about giving the students reallife learning experience. “The focus of this semester is on establishing relationships with individuals across the life span,� says Van der Ham. “We’re learning about health assessments, how clients understand and promote their health, the role

of the nurse and the role of the nurse as health educator. “This event will help our students develop in all these areas and hopefully benefit the community as well. We’re also hoping it might influence peoples’ lifestyle and create awareness on how to make positive health changes.� The first Health Fair happens at Nelson’s Chahko-Mika Mall on Thursday, March 22 from 2 to 5 p.m. and the second happens in Trail at the Waneta Mall on March 23 from 2 to 5 p.m.

Fraud-busting tips to businesses SUBMITTED Competition Bureau

Scams targeting businesses and not-for-profit organizations often succeed because victims think they are dealing with a reputable business. With Fraud Prevention Month underway, the Competition Bureau would like to remind businesses that, before responding to offers, businesses need to verify who they are dealing with to avoid being victims of scams and what they are agreeing to. Email scams, for example, use creative methods every day, so question the legitimacy of every inquiry, no matter how official it may appear. The key is to recognize it, report it and stop it. Here are a few things to consider that will help protect your organization from fraud: Closely examine any ads or offers and ask questions about anything that is unclear.

Review all unsolicited offers with a critical eye, even if it seems to come from a wellknown company. If a suspect offer comes in from a known company, look up their number in the phone book or online, and contact the company to confirm whether they actually sent the offer. Inform yourself about the product or service offered and do not feel pressured to act immediately. Take the time to research the offer. Read the fine print to understand what you are agreeing to. Always ask for a copy of the offer in writing. Before paying, confirm that you actually agreed to purchase the product or service, and make sure you receive what you ordered. Do not feel pressured into paying for a product or service because of threats that your credit rating will be damaged. Build in an anti-fraud plan (see the FACT campaign in

the Fraud Prevention section of the Bureau’s website). Some of the most common types of fraud that businesses encounter are phony invoice and directory scams. In an effort to educate businesses and organizations about scams targeting them, the Bureau has a number of online products available, including the FACT section of the Bureau’s website (Fraud Against Commercial Targets). For additional information on how to protect your business, please consult the Fraud Prevention section of the Bureau’s website at www. competitionbureau.gc.ca/ fraud. The Competition Bureau, as an independent law enforcement agency, ensures that Canadian businesses and consumers prosper in a competitive and innovative marketplace. FRAUD: Recognize It. Report It. Stop It.

Greater Trail Briefs Continued from P. 5

...and paves the way for major contract stripping and union busting. “This is not just about teachers anymore, this is about every public sector

union in the province waking up and realizing that this is a test that the government is performing to see if they can see this through with teachers,� he said. “If they do, then every single one of them is going

to feel the same sting of legislation.� About 200 people attended the event “highlighting the government’s lack of support for public education in B.C.,� which was led by the local teachers’

union but was supported by a number of other unions, who spread the same message as they marched through downtown to rally outside School District 20’s board office.

FUNDING FOR STUDENTS, NOT FOR WAGE HIKES. The BCTF is demanding a 15 per cent wage hike and other benefits that would cost $2 billion and raise taxes for BC families. Virtually all other public sector unions have settled for no wage increases. It’s unacceptable that schools are disrupted and that students and their families are inconvenienced over an unreasonable salary demand in difficult economic times. The union is making claims and demands that simply don’t add up.

BCTF CLAIMS AND DEMANDS

FACT

The union wants more paid time outside the classroom – sick leave for teachers on call, expanded bereavement and discretionary leave.

The government wants more time for teacher training and to ensure that Pro-D days really are for professional development.

The union says all teaching positions should be selected on the basis of seniority.

The government supports seniority but qualifications must also count so that math teachers teach math, and science teachers teach science.

The union says that teachers who perform poorly in evaluations will be dismissed – ‘one strike and you’re out’.

The government wants to support teacher improvement through a standardized evaluation process.

The union says that government refuses to negotiate.

There has been over a year of negotiations and 78 full bargaining sessions.

The union says that class size limits have been eliminated.

Class size limits will remain in place on all grades across BC.

The union says that BC has 700 fewer special needs teachers.

2100 new teaching assistants have been hired since 2001. And, with a new $165 million Learning Improvement Fund, we will hire more.

It’s time to focus on what matters most in education – BC’s students. That’s why we are focused on per-student funding which is at an all time high, not on wage increases. We all want to do more to make BC’s education system even better. It’s the driving force behind BC’s Education Plan that teachers, parents and students are helping to shape. Teachers care about their students. Parents care about their children’s future.

had children as young as seven.” For Lefkowitz, chess has been a long-time passion as he was involved with a chess club in Grande Prairie, Alta. for over 20 years. “I guess one of the things is, I really feel chess is a great game. I really feel like they should have a short segment of it in schools,” Lefkowitz said. “That is one of the reasons I started it (in Grand Forks).” While practice is one way to sharpen one’s chess skills, the Grand Forks club has many chess-related items that aid in teaching the game as well. “I brought 10 sets and boards and a number of clocks, so (we have) all the equipment you need, we even have a nice big demonstration board that you can hang on the wall,” explained Lefkowitz. “We also have some resources for putting it on computer and actually shining it on the board,” he said. Some people might be intimidated by chess but Lefkowitz and Invictus want to encourage people to come out regardless. “We’re friendly and we don’t bite,” jokes Invictus.

What’s new with what’s old?

Phoenix brewery envelope yields a relative bundle and has “Biner/Phoenix” with a red circle around it. According to Bill Wilson’s recent Beer Barons of BC, the Phoenix brewery was founded in 1899 by brothers Julius and Andrew Mueller. Julius became sole proprietor around 1900 and in October 1905 sold to Theo Biner and his sons Albert, Dan, and W.H. “The Biner family left Phoenix about

two years ago and moved to Olympia, but the attractions of the Boundary were too much for them, although they were all doing well on Puget Sound,” the Phoenix Pioneer reported at the time.

The envelope was addressed to the R.D. Swisher Manufacturing Co. of Chicago. The seller was in Dayton, Ohio. • A prospectus from the Viking Gold Mining Co. of Slocan City sold last week for $68 US. The four-page report dates from 1897. Robert G. Henderson of Slocan was company president, T. Reynell Lane of Vancouver vice-president, George Aylard of New Denver secretary-treasurer, George Suckling of Silverton and Cornelius (Neil) Gething of Slocan directors, and F.S. Andrews of Slocan solicitor. Henderson and Gething were also coproprietors of Slocan’s Arlington Hotel. The company, capitalized at $100,000, had two claims on Springer Creek: the Viking No. 2 and Phoenix Fraction, which reportedly assayed at $412 per ton in gold and silver. The prospectus includes a report

gold, and lead. It has since been poked at periodically. Rainbow Resources of Toronto acquired it last fall. • Last week’s item about a censored letter mailed from Slocan to the Dad’s Cookie Co. in Vancouver in 1942 brought back memories for Salmo’s Jean Stahl. She recalls visiting the factory at 12th and Kingsway, close to where her grandfather lived, and collecting cookie crumbs cheap. “You could get a bag of cookies for two bits. They always twisted it so there were ears on the bag,” she says. “If we were driving home, we’d go down and get a box of broken cookies a foot square for a dollar. It was always a thrill to get these broken cookies.” At the time, she was 11 or 12 and World War II was just starting. Her family then lived in Silverton, but they moved to Salmo in the 1940s and had the Shell station for 15 years.

Health/Recreation

Castlegar area walkers’ wonderland continues to expand JIM SINCLAIR Advertiser Editor

One of the most convenient, healthful and enjoyable pastimes imaginable (for those able to do it) is simply going for a walk. To be able to do it in spectacular surroundings is an absolute bonus. The entire West Kootenay area is endowed with wonderful geography and the territory around Castlegar has more than its share of choice strolling/hiking routes. But it’s not like nature didn’t need any help in creating the walkers’ paradise at our front and back doorsteps. A tremendous amount of work has gone into the creation and maintenance of the approximately 80 kilometres of trails that stretch roughly (and smoothly) from Glade to Trail. Thanks to Castlegar’s Friends of Parks and Trails there is a no-charge recreational opportunity that never loses it’s appeal from year to year. In fact, Trails society spokesperson Lawrence Redfern says the interest and use of the trails is only growing as time goes by. An open house held by the society drew about 80 interested people recently,

a turnout Redfern says was pleasing to the volunteer group. The society formed to cultivate and promote the network of local trails is populated by those with a love of the outdoors, mixed with the community spirit and energy to put some sweat into the work required to keep the

grid at its best. The cost of belonging is $10 per year. “You really don’t get anything for your ten bucks, other than the fact that you support the society,” Redfern explained with a chuckle on March 9. “The trails are free and we don’t ask people to do anything,

and the newsletters are available on our website.” The people who belong are proactive and willing. Redfern said last November about 30 showed up and put in four tough hours of work in trail-building. As well as users, they’re stewards. If they happen to see something

on their walk that needs attention they can just email the maintenance coordinator and know it’ll be seen to. “That helps us to know where the maintenance needs are without having to go to these places all the time,” said Redfern, who added that much has been done

in other ways over the years as well, such as with grant money and Katimivik volunteers, for example. What’s well worth mentioning is the variety and accessibility of the trails, and the fact that a good deal of terrain is fairly level – you don’t have to be an extreme athlete to negotiate it.

Related to the system is a growing emphasis on the accommodation of mountain bikers - itself, a recreational/ competitive activity with a rapidly growing profile. Trails for downhill mountain biking may soon be on the way, to be situated above the Merry Creek walking trail. “Downhill mountain biking is huge,” said Redfern. “We’ve purposely kind of partnered, and recruited a bunch of people from the ad hoc Castlegar Mountain Bike Society. They’re skilled, energetic people between 25 and 35 and they’re really the right kind of people to have involved in the society.” It’s tough to think of a more appealing, wholesome, sustainable asset for a community, and figures exist that demonstrate the growing interest people have in the local trails. “If you talk to Ann and Pam at the info centre they’ll tell you it’s the number one request they have,” said the eager spokesman. “We’re going to have a very good year this year,” Redfern concluded. Hard to think any different, especially if someone like yourself decides to get involved.

Region Former Rossland mayor favours Columbia project ARNE PETRYSHEN West Kootenay Advertiser

One of Rossland’s former mayors was at Rossland city council Monday asking that councillors move forward on the Columbia infrastructure project. Bill Profili, who was representing a group of citizens, asked that council take into account that the naysayers of the project are usually much more

vocal than those who support it. Profili said he understood there is a choice of two decisions before council; one is the status quo and the other is to “look into the future with a vision.� “The value of status quo is related to the old adage that, if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I see businesses in downtown closing, I see our community

not growing and developing in the needs of the problems that were here 30 years ago.� He added that even though neither decision is right or wrong, he thinks there are a lot of Rosslanders who hope council chose the decision that brings a vision to the city’s plan.

Mungall supports helmet use MEGAN COLE West Kootenay Advertiser

Ne l s o n - C r e s t o n MLA Michelle Mungall has joined the I Will campaign promoting helmet use for skiers and snowboarders. “The reason why I was so inspired by I Will is that I reflected on my own life and when I was 24 I sustained a head injury that was completely preventable and I left the hill in an ambulance,� said Mungall. The I Will campaign

Michelle Mungall Samuel Dobrin photo

- which is now a foundation - was started after Selkirk College student Will Schooler died last year due to a head injury sustained while skiing. Mungall took time to stand up in the legislature and share what the campaign is

doing in the area and her goals for promoting helmet use. “There are more hospitalizations from skiing and snowboarding than hockey in a year. Traumatic brain injuries are the leading cause of fatality in skiers and snowboarders,� said Mungall.�My age group is the most reluctant to wear helmets even though injuries are on the rise.� Mungall said that Nova Scotia is leading the way in terms of mandatory helmet

use legislation. “The idea for BC because we have the lowest number of helmets used and because we have such a high ski industry that attracts people from all over the world that it is something worth looking at and something we should explore,� she said. “Asking people to wear their helmets can do a lot to reducing the cost to the health care system but it can also do a lot for our citizens day to do day lives as well.�

Horoscope March 16, 2012

Michael O’Connor

for the e

Week

TIP OF THE WEEK: Celebrated author Gregg Braden says it well in his book, “The Divine Matrixâ€?. Essentially, Braden asserts that we live in a E sse conscious univ universe. The modern advances of physics have come to the same conclusions. interesting interpretations is called M Theory. The ‘M’ here stands for three key words: conclusions One One of the more m Magic, Mystery and Matrix. These are the best words that scientists pushing the limits of Quantum Physics use to describe what they are discovering. Among their more interesting discoveries is the realization that matter is 99.99% space. Now that is certainly a mystery. Our experience of reality certainly does not support these ďŹ ndings. So, the tables have been turned. The initial march of science challenged the ex authority of o the church some 3 centuries ago on the basis of empirical proof. With this, all appeals of mysticism were brushed aside by heroic convictions of certainty and a deep determination to overthrow the dogmatic grip of church authority. Now, science itself has proven that the mystics were right or at least on to something others other could only accept with blind faith. But, this discovery is still not so easily understood, accepted or desired. Thus, the stage is set for the next great revolution which requires us to digest and assimilate the mystical discoveries of science. requ

ARIES (MAR 21 – APR 20)

With spring right around the corner your engines are revving. Yet the actual gunshot will not come about until the new season actually begins. Still, your focus is sharp and you are ready to ride. Use this window to ensure all systems are ‘go’. When they are, you can relax into the moment and enjoy the sensations or your rumbling engines.

TAURUS (APR 20 – MAY 21)

It is likely that due to a long series of diligent efforts you have secured a pretty solid base. Yet you may feel blocked somehow. This is a good time to step back to reect and review. This will not deate your ambitions; rather it will allow you to celebrate and enjoy your successes. Use this opportunity to plan and prepare.

GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUN 21)

LIBRA (SEP 22 – OCT 22)

Paying extra attention to the overall quality of your health and that of the quality of your lifestyle patterns continues. Disruptions and stresses on relationship fronts over the past couple of years may have thrown you off of your center. If so, the time is right to step back and assess if you have reacted negatively. Intend to assert a new normal in your daily rhythms with health in mind.

SCORPIO (OCT 22 – NOV 21)

A creative imaginative cycle is drawing to a close. Have you made the most of it? There remains some time to do so but you better act now. There is reason to believe that you have entered a fog of dreams which are not serving your best interests. Alternatively, you are working with a turbulent current and are paddling towards happier waters.

It is likely that you have been getting some extra attention of late. Meeting new people, the start of new friendships and initiating key connections are all featured. This has been an important period of advancement and you may yet be able to squeeze out a bit more. Now, tune-in to a fresh batch of dreams that are beginning to brew in your mind.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 21 – DEC 21)

CANCER (JUN 21 – JUL 22)

CAPRICORN (DEC 21 – JAN 19)

LEO (JUL 22 – AUG 23)

AQUARIUS (JAN 19 – FEB 19)

VIRGO (AUG 23 – SEP 22)

PISCES (FEB 19 – MAR 20)

Seeing the bigger and perhaps the deeper picture continues. Either prompted by or activating reconsiderations of what constitutes security, this cycle of inuence will be with you for many years to come. This will stir religions, spiritual and even mystical orientations. Who and what holds the power you seek? Such questions are leading you into new territory. Committed to a creative journey, the need to get new tools and techniques and to take some calculated risks is urging you on. Deciphering what to do and how to direct this lead may require the support and guidance of others. This is sparking a soul searching journey. Patience with your self and the process is encouraged. Exploring a wider range and scope of relationships continues. Some of your objectives are likely very practical while others lean more to ideals and principles. This is a time of consolidating foundations and clarifying priorities more than it is one of expanding fronts. However, that time is approaching. For now, focus especially on healing and reconciling any relationship concerns.

Changes close to home are requiring that you pay extra close attention. It is likely that these are challenging your conďŹ dences. Giving more to the situation is probably required. Sober planning and action is required. Do not lean on the past now. Do tend to all unďŹ nished business if you want to be on track when spring catapults you into new directions. A busy cycle continues to lead you here and there. At best you are stimulating inspiring connections and at least reviewing key investments. A self-discovery process is part of the plot. You may feel that you have lost touch with the person you once knew yourself to be. Exploring and cultivating previously hidden talents is a promising sign. Reviewing your priorities continues as a central theme. Who are you at this stage of your journey and what do you feel you want and need? Concentrating upon such questions will become more evident this week. Deciphering what are your genuine needs and liberating yourself from external inuences that could steer you in the wrong direction remains important. Taking a series of pioneering leads continues. At worst, you may not feel like you are standing on solid ground. This is a call to exercise your imagination and visualization powers. This classic form of practical magic requires that you get clear on your dreams and desires, then sit back, relax and visualize your ideals coming to fruition.
