No radio beacon at airport, no Medevac Airport beacon repair proposal part of five-year financial plan KARL YU Gazette Editor

The City of Grand Forks is in the midst of completing its 2012-16 Five Year Financial Plan as council makes decisions on budgeting. While there was an increase in the city’s electrical utility rate in January, there aren’t any other anticipated increases for the rest of the year as city Chief Financial Officer Cecile Arnott said she hasn’t heard anything from FortisBC regarding this. However, there could be other increases, as water and sewer usage fees could increase by $90,000. Proposed preventative maintenance and minor capital projects include repairs to the beacon radio at the airport, estimated to cost $68,000. “The airport needs to fix the beacon radios so that they can do night flights,” explained Arnott at a special council meeting this past Monday night. “If we don’t fix them, (they are failing) we can’t do Medevacs anymore.” With the Grand Forks International Baseball Tournament a big draw for the city, $17,000 worth of work for the infield at James Donaldson Park was proposed. “The infield work needs to be done and apparently it’s been a safety issue as well,” Arnott said. “If we do it, the expected life is another 15 to 20 years.” Repairs on the washrooms at Barbara Ann Park were also part of the proposed budget for an estimated cost of $10,000. “We’re suggesting that since (the three) are one offs and we’re looking at tremendous pressure for tax money, that we do these this coming year and fund from surplus” Other proposed maintenance projects included $15,000 for the Trans Canada Trail crossing design on Highway 3 – $15,000 or 50 per cent of that would be funded by the Ministry of Transportation and the city’s 50 per cent ($15,000) could come from the Trail Project Fund and slag sales reserve. The slag sales reserve funded the city’s portion of the trail project. There was also a proposed $10,000 that could go towards preventative maintenance on the exterior of the Scout Hall on 72nd Avenue.

City of Grand Forks Chief Financial Officer Cecile Arnott said that the radio beacons at the airport need repairing.

As of Monday’s meeting, the water utility was expected to see revenue of $790,000 while operation expenses were anticipated at $715,000. Minor capital was projected to be $75,000 and studies and planning projected to be $255,000 with a deficit of $255,000. The sewer utility’s revenue was projected to be $908,000 with operation expenses projected to be $697,000. Minor capital was projected to be $25,000, studies and planning at $253,000, debt servicing at $186,000 with a deficit of $253,000 forecast. The summary of total incremental levies reflected in 2012 could be $100,000 for the operations budget, $10,000 for the scout hall, $20,000 for committees, $77,000 for community support line items, $5,000 for hanging baskets and items such as banners, an offset by an increase of $20,000 thanks to a transfer from electrical for a net increase of $192,00 in tax revenue. An initial presentation on the plan was made at the March 19 city council meeting while, as mentioned, the second presentation took place Monday night. Another meeting is planned for tomorrow (Thursday) at 2 p.m. and will deal with James Donaldson Park, the Boundary Emergency Transition Housing Society (BETHS), the Boundary Women’s Coalition and the Boundary Museum. A five-year bylaw is expected to see three readings at the next council meeting, this Monday (April 2).

Curling club wants land for $1 in 1977 1907 Ranchers from all parts of the valley gathered in the city offices to discuss the formation of a local Farmers Institute. 1912 A capacity audience at the opera house saw moving pictures and witnessed a pie-eating contest, the winner being Geo. Wiseman. 1917 The doubling of the capacity of the Grand Forks plant of the Curlew Creamery Co. to 1,000 pounds daily was the announcement made by manager Ira Carter. 1922 Rocky Mountain Trading Co., was the name of a new liquor export concern which was to open for business in Grand Forks shortly. 1927 E.F. Keir had developed a fur farm of considerable worth near Greenwood where he had two blue foxes and 25 silver grays. 1932 The unseasonably early blooming of strawberries was discovered by D.R. Docksteader when he raked over his plants. 1937 Grace Hull, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. S.T. Hull, was elected May Queen for 1937 by the students at Central School. 1942 The Odd Fellows’ crib team were season winners in the Grand Forks Crib League when they defeated the Firemen in the final game to break the tie for leadership. 1947 Mayor D.C. Manly accepted an invitation to become a patron of Mount St. Francis, a proposed home for the aged

to be built at Fairview, Nelson. 1952 Jack Acres, manager of Woodland and Co. drugstore since 1948, acquired sole ownership and was to operate the firm under the name Acres Drug Store Ltd. Woodland & Co. had been in operation in the city since 1899. 1962 The Boundary Hospital Improvement District and the cities of Greenwood and Grand Forks went all out for a ‘yes’ vote on three plebiscites, an affirmative vote of 90.9 per cent being achieved. Work on the new hospital was therefore to commence early in April. 1967 Mayor Jack Goddard announced on the weekend the appointment of Edward Terrance (Terry) Clegg as chief administrative officer of the City of Grand Forks. 1972 A row-housing project, estimated worth a quarter of a million dollars, was halted last week by the city by reason of violation of the recently approved zoning bylaw. 1977 The Grand Forks Curling Club would like to purchase city-owned property near the arena for a minimal $1 fee, the city learned at their regular meeting.

Premier Gordon Campbell called it, “The most serious threat to Canada-U.S. relations in our time.” 2007 Several nurseries this year will be relying, at least in part, on import Mexican labour to see them through their peak season, participating in a federal-government agricultural initiative created to help ease the labour shortage for Canadian agriculturally-based companies. Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) board of directors chair Gord DeRosa says local use of the federal program reflects of a booming economy and robust job market. Local nursery owner Vince Bron, of Bron & Sons, says many of the people he used to hire each spring have this year headed out to explore more lucrative job markets in the oil patch in Fort McMurray, for example, where employers are aggressively recruiting.

Atamanenko, Ross GFBRAS receives funding for abattoir support local food

Guest speaker Colleen Ross, vice-president of National Farmers Union in Canada, discussed why supporting local farmers and local foods is important to the community, during a forum on food sovereignty hosted by MP Alex Atamanenko.

CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

The Grand Forks and Boundary Regional Agricultural Society (GFBRAS) has received $240,000 in funding from the federal government to set up a licensed mobile animal slaughter unit (abattoir). The announcement was made in Gallery 2 last week by Dan Albas, MP Okanagan-Coquihalla, who announced the funding on behalf of the Honourable Lynne Yelich, Minister of State for Western Economic Diversification (WD). “One of things we stated in last year’s budget was that we wanted to see local industries take the lead and say how they feel they should be moving forward on their issues,” Albas said. “People closest to their issues certainly have a lot to say about it. Roly (Russell) and the (agricultural) society brought up a very good business plan.” The proposed business plan revealed that 70 per cent of the people in the Boundary area surveyed said they would use the mobile abattoir. Albas stated the large number caught their attention. “WD felt that this would be a great avenue for a traditional agricultural food industry to take that next step,” he added. “We want to create not just a short-term bump in the economy, but we want to create a long-term, sustainable economic development in this region. The Boundary area is very important and we want to see all of Canada do just as well.” The funding will aid the GFBRAS purchase a custom-built trailer and hauling vehicle for use as a licensed mobile abattoir. It will also fund a winter docking station, and provide equipment for processing poultry and multiple species of livestock. “It’s fantastic news to get the funding from WD. It’s been a long time coming to get to this point so it’s very exciting,” stated Roly Russell, president of the GFBRAS. “We’re pretty eager to have assistance from actual meat producers out there who are interested in helping out and making this a reality.” The abattoir will eliminate costs on transportation and reduce the stress on the animals due to transportation. Area residents will also have access to locally-

raised and government-inspected meat products, including beef, pork, goat and poultry. Once the abattoir is set up, Russell stated a schedule will be established to identify how much it would cost to move it and the fee per animal. “We should be able to operate the unit at a very reasonable price,” Russell said. “In that way, it will probably be scheduled from the beginning of the year and if you have bunch of cattle and you would like to use the unit, you’d get in touch with me and we’d figure out a way to get the unit to you at the appropriate time.” Russell expects the machine to be available by the end of this summer. “We in the (agricultural) society believe that smart investments like this lead us to greater productivity and greater environmental sustainability,” he added. “This in turn leads us to family nutrition and income in the community, which leads to economic prosperity and this in turn leads to sustainable social, economical and environmental prosperity.” Doug Zorn, past-president of GFBRAS, added, “I feel that this is a pretty important thing that has happened for the community. I think that the meat producers are an important part that could really move us forward. It’s not so much about today’s farmers as much as it is about the future of farming in this region.” Zorn pointed out that Grand Forks and the Boundary region used to be a thriving agricultural community and the future looks bright. Albas noted that the closest processing facility is located about 100 km away in Rock Creek, and the local producers here face high transportation costs and waiting periods. Since the facility at Rock Creek is not outfitted for poultry, it will also be making use of the abattoir. “This mobile unit will engage local businesses to increase their production of red meat and poultry,” he said. “In the next few months, local jobs will be created to operate this mobile unit.” The number of jobs that the abattoir would create is still being discussed. WD works to promote the development and diversification of the economy with provinces, industry associations and communities. For more information contact GFBRAS at boundaryagsociety@gmail.com.

A forum on food sovereignty, hosted by MP of B.C.’s Southern Interior Alex Atamanenko, was held in Grand Forks with special guest Colleen Ross on March 19. The Seniors’ Centre in Grand Forks’ City Park was full of farmers, gardeners and interested residents who were keen on finding out more about local sustainability. Ross, the first vice-president of the National Farmers Union (NFU) in Canada and the owner of Waratah Downs Organic Farm, discussed the importance of small farmers and fighting back against global corporations. According to the NFU website, “Farmers producing diverse products must work together to advance effective solutions. The organization also works toward the development of economic and social policies that will maintain the family farm as the primary food-producing unit in Canada.” The NFU is an organization that believes that problems facing farmers in Canada are common. “I hope that farmers become less discouraged and to start thinking creatively on how they can reach out and market to the eaters in this community,” she explained. “I hope that the eaters out here who aren’t farming, start to think more strategically about what they choose to eat, how they make their purchases and who they’re buying their foods from.” What is important is bringing farmers and eaters closer together, stated Ross. She hopes that the farmers, gardeners and eaters who attended the presentation will start to join hands and work together. At the same time, Ross hopes that they farmers don’t settle for less. “I want them to push back so that they don’t let the federal government, the local government or

the provincial government dictate what’s going on and for them to start saying no,” she stated. “I want them to start doing things that make sense instead of doing things that are dictated from above.” Atamanenko agreed. “They can make this an election issue in the next B.C. federal election,” he explained. “Each province has to sign on to the trade agreements so let’s get a position from all the parties and see what they say.” For Atamanenko, the issue of food sovereignty is not an issue that belongs to one political party. “A country that loses control of (its) own food supply is, I believe, vulnerable,” he stated. “We are a trading nation and we can find a healthy compromise between trading and at the same time having control of our food systems.” To Ross, there is a distinct difference between being a farmer and being a gardener. “I think there’s a romantic idea of being a farmer and I think a lot of people who grow food are gardeners who think they’re farmers. If you lose your crop and you’re a gardener, you’re going to be OK,” she stated. “If I lose my crop and I’m a farmer, I’m going to lose my home, there’s a big difference.” The overall message was to become more engaged with where the food one buys and eats comes from. “Buy some seeds, dig up some soil and plant them, it is not that difficult. There’s so much life in a seed, put the seed in the ground, (and) ask your friends who have success growing food,” she concluded. “Under every bit of grass there’s soil. Rip out that soil and plant.” Roly Russell, president of the Grand Forks and Boundary Regional Agricultural Society (GFBRAS), Regional District of Kootenay Boundary Area D Director Irene Perepolkin and past-president of GFBRAS Doug Zorn were also in attendance.

❚ Our View

Restorative Justice could ease backlogs There is a backlog of cases in British Columbia’s courts. According to reports, there were 56 cases thrown out thanks delays in 2010 and 109 in 2011 and much of the same is predicted for 2012. The provincial government announced in February that there would be nine new judges appointed to help alleviate the pressure but there are some in the legal profession who doubt that will help the large number of cases which are close to reaching expiration in the courts. But there is something that can aid the provincial courts – a restorative justice forum, which the Boundary Restorative Justice Program and a number community organizations, including local RCMP, are involved in. Based on the healing circle that First Nations use, it involves an offender and victims coming together for a face-to-face forum where everyone involved has a say and restitution is decided on. There are case files which the RCMP won’t recommend for a restorative justice forum and the offenders must admit that they did something wrong and seek to make amends but the forum could be a good alternative for a number of other reasons, besides alleviating the crowded courts. Those familiar with the restorative justice forum say that it is often more difficult for offenders to face accusers in an intimate setting as they have to address the victims personally. Hearing first hand from the victim in that setting could put the offender on the spot and could cause the offender to feel more shame – it can be difficult looking the victim right in their eye. Some say that the forum could be applied to a number of different situations where someone was harmed but it is often used for first-time offenders. While some cases are fit for trial, some of the cases involving lesser offences could use the forum and even having cases of less severity off the court docket will mean less of a logjam. A similar type of forum was used in a case involving former Midway mill owners Fox Forest Products, who disturbed a riparian area near the Kettle River. Fox Forest Products took responsibility and donated money to the Granby Wilderness Committee to repair the damage, in a process those involved referred to as “quick.” Taking Fox Forest Products to court would’ve taken longer and would’ve added yet another case to the already overflowing court system.

Question of the Week from www.grandforksgazette.ca

As dreary March concludes, April blossoms into spring. Dirt covered snow starts to melt as the weather warms ever so slightly. Let’s ignore our neighbours to the east who have been enjoying blistering hot weather for a moment. Yes, that’s me glaring at you for pictures of shorts and sandals and ice-cold drinks. Each season has its perks: fall for its vivid colours, winters for its indoor sessions of steamy cups of tea, spring for its new blooms and summer for the suns rays. Since I arrived here over six months ago, I’ve had my share of new experiences and I have definitely experienced a lot in this little community. From running the trails and my attempts at wood carving, to history lessons about the city’s past and issues of the deer.

❚ A Chin Up

CASSANDRA CHIN

Oh, deer. Everything has been a learning experience and I’ve enjoyed each new venture that I’ve had so far. My next challenge, and it will definitely be an interesting one, is to try my hand at gardening this year. For all that I love about flowers and vegetables and all things that grow, I can’t seem to keep them alive; at least, not without reminders. My main issue, I believe, is that I forget to water them. My mom can attest to the constant reminders to water the few

plants we have. Mostly it’s because when I ask myself if I’ve watered a plant, I think to myself, yes I have. Three days later, sharp green leaves are found limp and desolate. Nevertheless, let’s hope that this year fares better than all my previous attempts. As a child, rather than dehydrating the poor greenery, I recall over-watering the plants. I was probably thinking the more water the better. Oh how times have changed. There will probably be colourful post-it notes pasted around my home, reminding me to water the growing sprouts. That or I will have to make an organized schedule with arrows pointing to what days I should water and how much. Once I have a schedule, it should get easier, right?

LETTERS ❚ HOTEL FIRES

Childhood at hotel Editor: In the 1940s, my father was a CPR railroader. As he was very young and had very little seniority, he was bumped several times back and forth between Grand Forks and Nelson. His first bump was from Nelson to Grand Forks around 1944. As housing was in short supply and we had to move on short notice, the only accommodation my parents could find was a room in the Grand Forks Hotel Annex – upstairs in what is now Kocomo’s Coffee House. My mother would feed my younger brother and I cereal for breakfast and sandwiches for lunch in our room. She would then dress brother Jack and I up each evening and take us over to the hotel for supper. The tables were covered with white linen tablecloths and there were large picture windows looking out on a beautiful garden, where the parking lot is now – there weren’t enough cars in those days to warrant a parking lot. In the centre of each table was a tray containing salt and pepper shakers, soda crackers and hot mustard. Soup was served with every meal, hence the crackers but the mustard? We only ate there for a short time until we found permanent housing; however, while we were there, a crew of construction workers was also at the hotel, eating in the dining room at the same time. As with any two-and-fouryear-olds, my brother and I couldn’t wait for our soup to hit the table so we could start on the crackers. The construction crew got a kick out of loading the crackers with hot mustard and feeding them to us and we gobbled them up as fast as they could feed them to us, to the amusement of the entire dining room. We learned at an early age to enjoy spicy food and we still do today. Those were great days at the Grand Forks Hotel. Bob McTavish, Grand Forks

❚ PESTICIDE USE

Cancer and pesticides Editor: Re: Cancer society using fear tactics (letter in the March 21 issue of the Grand Forks Gazette Gazette)) Thanks, Lorne Hepworth, for your very reassuring letter. I am now trusting that Monsanto

et al. will take care of all our pollination needs now that all the bees are disappearing. John Grandy, Grand Forks *** Editor: Re: Cancer society using fear tactics (letter in March 21 issue of the Grand Forks Gazette) Gazette) Our doctors’ organization is extremely disappointed to see the chemical industry attacking the Canadian Cancer Society. Goodness knows health authorities and industry lobbyists don’t agree on everything but all parties have a responsibility to engage in civil discourse. The industry’s unfounded allegations – against one of Canada’s most respected and trusted health charities – are just beyond the pale. No one benefits when debate is carried on in this manner. Gideon Forman, Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment

❚ EMERGENCY CALLS

Dispatch troubles Editor: Re: Gazebo at the Lake set on fire (police report in the March 21 issue of the Grand Forks Gazette)) zette As the initial caller to 911 regarding an accident above the Paulson Bridge on the morning of March 18, I wish to clarify that at no time did I, or the lady who came in to the store requesting someone to call 911, ever say that a vehicle had gone off the Paulson Bridge. I reported that a vehicle had gone over the bank, above the Paulson Bridge. When the lady recovered enough to take the phone, I heard her report the same thing. She did not witness the accident but said witnesses told her the car had flipped over the cement guardrail on the side of the highway and gone down the bank. I tried to tell the 911 dispatch it was approximately one kilometre above the bridge but they wanted to know exactly how many kilometres the scene was from Christina Lake. Neither of us knew and a customer in the store guessed between 20 and 30 kilometres. They wanted to know how steep the bank was (we didn’t know exactly) and if the car was visible from the road (no it was not). I understand Trail/Rossland was called first and about 20 or 30 minutes later, Christina Lake was called. I suggest, since we are forced to have a centralized 911 dispatch, at the very least, they should be equipped with maps

❚ OPINION and computer programs that can pinpoint local landmarks of rural areas, landmarks that local fire departments and first responders would know. Alternatively, the dispatchers must be familiar with all the rural landmarks in the areas they serve. It was very frustrating speaking with the 911 dispatch and even more so reading in the papers that the call was reported as a vehicle going off the bridge. I thank God no one was hurt. The delay experienced from having to deal with the centralized 911 dispatch could have been devastating. Betty Martin, Christina Lake

❚ EMERGENCY CALLS

Co-ops vs. corporate Editor: Re: Steinman discusses food co-ops in Grand Forks (story in the Feb. 22 issue of the Grand Forks Gazette)) Gazette The idea of food secure communities is not a new idea by any means, in fact it plays on a time before globalization when communities were selfsufficient. In the article, “Steinman discusses food co-ops in Grand Forks,” the people of Nelson will be replacing the Extra Foods store with a food co-op. Is Grand Forks willing to take a step back from progress of the modern world and get rid of all the big grocery stores? These aren’t just grocery stores but big box stores that provide food, furnishings, pharmacy and much more. Will people be willing to go without foods like oranges from California, bananas from Ecuador, and pre-packaged TV dinners from who knows where? I don’t think so. There are plenty of farmers’ markets in the Boundary area that focus on locally-grown produce that co-exists with the chain grocery stores. Will this solve things if people make longer trips to larger centres such as Castlegar to still shop at these big box stores to get specialty groceries? Again, it seems contradictory to the food co-ops. If locally grown foods are to make a complete comeback, they must be comparably priced and in sufficient quantities. Don’t get me wrong, food co-ops sound like a fantastic idea, they just don’t seem like a viable option to overtake the large corporate powerhouses that have become an integral part of our industrialized food system.

Jumbo Glacier Resort is not a done deal The announcement that the Jumbo Glacier resort proposal has received government approval on March 20 came as a complete surprise to everyone in the province, particularly those who live in ROY RONAGHAN the East Kootenays and have been watching the project for two decades. Even the proponent was surprised. The application for the development was first made when Mike Harcourt was premier and Glen Clark was environment minister. Victoria was chosen as the site for the announcement, not Invermere, the community nearest to the Jumbo Glacier. Bill Bennett, MLA for the area and Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources Steve Thomson chose to be about as far away from the epicentre of the action as one can get. Bennett said that making the announcement in Invermere would have perpetuated the division in East Kootenay communities. Maybe he didn’t want demonstrations from either side. Thomson signed what is called a master development agreement for the project and his doing so allows the proponent to begin the necessary engineering studies that precede any work on the ground. Oberto Oberti, president and CEO of proponent Glacier Resorts Ltd. says he would like to open the resort in 2014 but he must first get the area rezoned as a resort municipality. At a meeting in August 2009, the Regional District of East Kootenay board of directors handed the project to the provincial government for zoning as a resort municipality. The environmental assessment certificate that took nine years to complete was issued eight years ago. The reviewers had reached the conclusion that the project was in “the broad public interest.” However, those who are opposed have questioned that conclusion. They say it doesn’t make economic sense. The assessment certificate listed 195 conditions that must be met by the proponent. The government also has responsibility for rebuilding the logging road into the valley. Jumbo Mountain and Jumbo Glacier are located 55 kilometres west of Invermere, a small community in the Rocky Mountain trench. The resort that is planned will be built in three phases on an old sawmill site. When it is completed it will include 5,500 bed units plus 750 bed units for staff. Some 2,000 to 3,000 visitors are expected to visit the resort in the high winter season to use its 23 ski lifts. Why Jumbo? A press release from Jumbo Resorts Limited says “The resort’s location was chosen for its optimal snow conditions, high elevations, large glaciers, and the fact the Jumbo Creek valley has seen significant prior use and it provides the easiest access to 3,000 metre high (10,000 feet) glaciers in North America.” Nowhere has the proponent expressed concern about the fact that Jumbo Glacier is melting at a rapid rate. What will happen to the resort when the glaciers are gone? The estimated cost of the project is $450 million. During construction it will provide approximately 3,750 person years of employment. At completion, 750 to 800 people will be employed full time. Jumbo resort supporters are the people who look to the project as a necessary stimulus for the economy. It will provide jobs but they will be the kind of low paid jobs one finds in the resort industry: ski lift operators, food service providers, hotel staff, etc. A fierce opponent of the Jumbo Glacier proposal has been Wildsight, a group that works to maintain biodiversity and healthy human communities in the Columbia and Rocky Mountains ecoregion of B.C. The group has already begun a campaign in opposition to the project. CBC has reported that a delegation from France would be visiting Jumbo Glacier this spring. The company may well be Compagnie des Alpes, the company that expressed interest in the resort when it was first proposed. Although it has cleared a couple hurdles, the Jumbo Glacier project is still far from being a done deal. Opposition against Thomson’s decision is building.

NEWS ❚ TEACHERS’ STRIKE

Teachers to vote in mid-April, suggest mediators CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

The BC Teacher’s Federation (BCTF) is seeking support from its members for a possible strike during a vote on April 17 and 18. The vote asks members about a protest that could include a walkout that would violate Bill 22. The legislation bans strikes and imposes a mediator to end the long running contract negotiations between the BCTF and the government. The BCTF, though opposed to current mediation, has put forward two names, including Ian Donald of the B.C. Court of Appeal, and Stephen Kelleher of the B.C. Supreme Court as a potential mediators. Sabourin stated the two choices were chosen as trusted, neutral mediators that understand labour law. “We don’t know how the government will respond to that but those are two names put forth that we feel can do a good job mediating an entire settlement,” he said. At the BCTF’s annual general meeting on March 17 to 20, Norm Sabourin, president of the Boundary District Teacher’s Association, pointed out that there was a lot to talk about, with Bill 22 on the top of the list. “At the AGM we did put together an action plan to deal with Bill 22,” he said. “We will be having a vote, and we will be voting on the possibility of pulling extracurricular activities, and there is a possibility that we will be voting on a full withdrawal of services.” Though teachers are still actively engaged with extracurricular activities in Grand Forks and School District 51 (SD51), Sabourin pointed out that there were dozens of lo-

cal teacher associations who have passed motions to stop the activities. Sabourin is hoping that the government will reconsider and bargain with the BCTF on Bill 22. “We hope that we have a fair mediation process set up right now but it doesn’t look that way,” he added. “It looks like a mock mediation and it looks like there will be a predetermined outcome because of all the conditions placed by the government.” Since Bill 22 was passed into legislation last week, current teacher job action will stop when spring break is over. Students in Grand Forks and SD51 return to school on April 2. He also stated the union is not demanding anything, despite the notion teachers are demanding a 15 per cent pay hike over three years. “In the middle of January we put forth a new bargaining proposal, so 15 per cent is our end proposal and we are certainly willing to negotiate,” he said. “When you start off at a number, you know there’s a reasonable chance you’re going to be backing off from that number. We’re not demanding 15 per cent, yes it’s in the proposal, but we are looking for a meditative settlement that makes sense.” The first thing teachers are fighting for are for the students, with class size and composition, Sabourin stated. “This bill is just brutal. The system for compensating teachers with class sizes over 30, is absolutely insane. A class of 30 is already too big, so the government is trying to get teachers to accept an even worse situation and our students will fall farther behind.” Teachers have been without a contract since last June.

The Boundary Emergency Transition Housing Society (BETHS) and Shelter Co-ordinator Tonya Galloway will be shutting the doors on the year on March 31.

KARL YU Gazette Editor

March 31 will spell the conclusion of the Boundary Emergency Transition Housing Society (BETHS) cold weather shelter’s second year and like the first, it has been a learning experience. While Shelter Co-ordinator Tonya Galloway said that the first year – which lasted from February to March of 2011 – was more of a pilot project, there were a lot more people using the shelter, as the season started in November. The shelter is currently run out of the Grand Forks Christian Centre. “We opened Nov. 1 and it’s been a ride ever since. Of course, with it being a full season and being out there, things came forward that we didn’t expect would happen, like the (Grand Forks and Winnipeg) hotel fires,” she said. “We did have protocols and procedures in place to deal with that but it was something that no one could have foreseen.” Galloway said that the funding is from B.C. Housing for emergency response and is weather contingent and because of this, the shelter won’t be available to extend its operation past March, despite some being displaced by the fire. “In the fall again, there will be conversations with B.C. Housing and another application will go in and they will approve the funding as they see (fit) and if they accept BETHS’ proposal,

Stop Dreaming

Start Flying

they’ll make adjustments as necessary and start again with the cold weather,” explained Galloway. As for what the future holds for the shelter, Galloway says that BETHS has a long-term vision with three phases. The first phase consisted of the trial and opening, the second involved seeing how the five-month situation with full weather response would go and the third could see a permanent, fixed location. “The partnership with the Grand Forks Christian Centre is amazing but it’s a functioning church that we take over every evening and when you’re looking at it being for five months, seven days a week, 12 hours a day, there are some limitations in terms of church use or what BETHS would like to do during the day,” explained Galloway. “BETHS would like to see a permanent location and eventually down the road, the board of directors and BETHS have discussed a 24-hour shelter for 12 months a year so individuals that come in and need services at night could also have services during the day.” Galloway and BETHS’ board of directors and staff would like to express thanks to the community partners, volunteers, and individuals who supported BETHS this season. With the contributions of time and donations, the shelter was able to have a successful second year.

❚ JUSTICE

Boundary Restorative Justice alternative to courts, seeking volunteers KARL YU Gazette Editor

There is an alternative to the court system in Grand Forks and other cities that provides a more healing-oriented option for offenders and victims of crime. The Boundary Restorative Justice Program has been in operation since 2002. It is a community-based justice process based on a First Nations healing circle but isn’t a replacement for the justice system. Richard Tarnoff, co-ordinator of the Boundary program, says the program works with local RCMP and other community organizations and emphasizes repairing the harm caused by (the) conflict and crime rather than only punishing the offender. He says that a restorative justice forum is often used for first-time offenders but can be used for any situation where people have been harmed. While some might view this as an easy way out for the offender, Tarnoff disagrees. “Actually, in a lot of cases it’s more difficult, because the offender actually has to sit down and talk to the person that (he or she) has harmed and hear how what (they) did affected the (victims). It’s then up to the victim to decide what the consequences are and what the restitution should be,” explains Tarnoff. “It enables the victim to not only communicate how they’ve been harmed but also how to have the damage repaired.” Tarnoff says that even if the offender goes to court and prison, the victim usually doesn’t receive restitution for the

Richard Tarnoff

damage they have suffered or a way of moving past their feelings of anger and victimization. The offender, who often pleads not guilty, hasn’t had to take responsibility, make amends or been given a way to be accepted back into the community. While the RCMP does forward cases, not every case is suitable for a restorative justice forum, however, as there must be conditions that are met. The offender has to have the desire to make amends and the victim has to be willing to participate in the process. “Certainly no sexual offenses and certainly we’re not going to recommend murder charges. It’s really a big wideopen field and what we do is look at each individual case on its own merit, Grand Forks RCMP Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison says. “We also look at the persons involved, first off, to determine whether or not the offender is an appropriate person for that type of recommendation.” Members of the restorative justice program meet separately with the par-

ties involved – offender, victim, family members and people who have been affected – and then a face-to-face forum is arranged. Tarnoff says that during the forum everyone is able to describe what happened and how they’ve been affected; an agreement on how best to repair the damage done is discussed and agreed upon and a mentor is provided to assist the offender with any problems that arise. “Once the offender completes the agreement, the case is closed and the offender has no criminal record as a result of the incident,” Tarnoff says, although failure to complete the agreement could still result in criminal charges. The Boundary Restorative Justice Program is seeking volunteers and Tarnoff says that there are a number of ways people can assist the program. “We certainly want to get as many people in the community as possible involved both as supporters and, if they have the time and interest, to take the training to become facilitators and mentors,” he said, adding that the program will be offering three-day training workshops in July. Restorative justice-type forums are also being used for environmental infractions by industries and last year, there was one involving Fox Forest Products, the former owners of the mill in Midway regarding a disturbance done to a riparian zone along the Kettle River in Midway. In that case, Fox Forest Products donated $10,000 to the Granby Wilderness Society to rehabilitate and improve the riparian zones along the river.

Boundary Habitat Stewards focus on eco-restoration CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

The Boundary Habitat Stewards (BHS) is a group that consists of environmentally conscious organizations around the Boundary that focuses on ecosystem restoration. BHS originally developed from an initiative two years ago from the Habitat Conservation Trust Fund. “The Granby Wilderness Society got $4,000 to look at ecosystem restoration mainly in the Grasslands, but I wanted to be more holistic about it and look at everything,” explained Jenny Coleshill, project co-ordinator and local biologist for the Granby Wilderness Society. “I also wanted

more input and help and expertise so we held a meeting two March’s ago and I brought in some experts in eco-restoration and we did a presentation.” From that meeting, a group formed that consists of the Granby Wilderness Society, the Grand Forks Wilderness Association, the Boundary Weeds Committee, the Christina Lake Stewardship Society and a habitat biologist from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources. “We’ve been meeting every other month and we’re trying to prioritize areas that need restoration,” Coleshill stated. “We are trying to be the voice for the Boundary and get money from the government to get restoration going on and what not.” Coleshill added they had just received

money to support prescribed burns throughout the Boundary. The funding will be spread throughout three years, with the BHS receiving roughly $250,000 a year to do prescribed burnings. Morrissey Creek is one of the first areas on the list for a prescribed burn this spring, Coleshill pointed out. Prescribed, or controlled, burns are used to reduce fuel buildup and decrease the likelihood of a more serious fire. “We’ll be meeting again in April to see how and when this burn will happen,” she explained. “Our team is going to looking at the weeds aspect, as well as look at the wildlife trees. We’ll be pulling away debris and

what not so that the wildlife trees won’t be burned during the prescription.” Other projects BHS will look into include watching the amphibian migration and the black cottonwood riparian restoration planning. “We look at everything. We’re interested in wildlife trees, stewardship, amphibians, birds, carnivores, and everything,” she said. “That’s why it’s important to get everyone from different perspectives together.” A BHS sign will also be placed somewhere along the Trans Canada Trail with information about eco-restoration on it. For those interested in volunteering, contact Coleshill at jenny.coleshill@granbywilderness.ca.

Reminiscences of by Jim Holtz

Over the last 76 years, life-long North Fork resident Carl Stone has not only seen many of the changes affecting the lives of Boundary ranchers and farmers but has experienced many of them, good and bad, himself. The horses he once learned to hitch to wagons and ploughs have been replaced by tractors; the homesteads and town sites he knew in his youth, that had dotted the Granby River valley from the beginning of the 20th century, have all slowly become overgrown and vanished. Only a few men and women who, like Carl, were raised in the North Fork remember the first families that built the log houses and cleared the land long before there was electricity or telephones or paved roads. “I was fortunate to have known many of the original settlers,” Carl says, “and to have heard their stories and remembered and recorded them over the years.” Carl is highly regarded as a local historian in the Boundary area. He has his own archive of photographs, articles and publications that recount the early days of the area, and his personal history is both interesting and indicative of a time when life was different indeed, and significantly more precarious. “I should have been born in Phoenix,” Carl says, “on the homestead my grandfather had where they later put the tailings pond for the mine but a neighbour rode on horseback to Grand Forks to get old Doc Kingston, who drove his car up and took my mother down to the hospital.” Just three years after Carl was born, his father, George Stone, was killed in an accident at the Phoenix mine. Then in 1942, Carl’s mother, Dorothy, developed tuberculosis and had to go to Kamloops to stay in the sanatorium there. While his mother was ill, Carl, who was too young to remain with his two older sisters and brother, was taken in by several different families, who looked after him. “In those days,” Carl says, “that’s just what people did. There were no social services; no one got paid for it.” As he does with most experiences in his life, Carl expresses gratitude for his atypical upbringing. “They all treated me royally and I learned something from each one.”

Carl Stone

When his mother returned to Grand Forks, they lived in town for a couple of years until she married widower Al Cooper, a horse logger and farmer. The family lived in several places in Grand Forks until 1946, when Al and Dorothy moved the family to another homestead on the old Lynch Creek Hotel site 30 kilometres up the North Fork Road. There was no way for Carl to attend school from there in those days, so he moved in with the Buck Kennedy family, on the Brown Creek Road ranch which he later bought from the Kennedy’s and where he lives today. It was there that Carl’s love of ranching really took hold, and he decided that ranching was all he really wanted to do. He worked hard on the ranch with the Kennedy’s and in return learned all the skills that a self-reliant rancher needed.

Carl Stone circa 2012

He confides that he wasn’t particularly interested in completing high school; he would have preferred working on the ranch but the Kennedy family wanted him to graduate and they had been so good to him that he felt he had to finish school, which he did, graduating from Grand Forks High School in 1955. From an early age, Carl realized that the only way he could have the ranching life he wanted was to plan carefully and frugally. “I knew I had to save,

dig in and do it myself,” he says. In 1955, at the age of 19, Carl acquired his first piece of property near the 25-kilometre bridge on Brown Creek Road. “In those days, that property, 80 acres, was assessed at $300,” Carl says. Two years later, he made arrangements to buy 123 acres from the Engels family, a few kilometres further north. Then, in 1967, he made two decisions that would establish for him the life he had worked for: he asked Lona Hooge to marry him and he bought the ranch he had worked on for the last 20 years from the Kennedy family. Lona, who had been recently widowed, was instrumental in helping Carl develop and maintain a successful cow/calf operation on the ranch, and Carl was happy to help raise Lona’s two children, Susan and Mike. They also had a wonderful daughter of their own, Karen, who sadly passed away at the age of 12. Though they have slowed down somewhat now, Carl and Lona at one time managed a herd of 90 animals, a herd that their neighbour, Larry Butler maintains was one of the most highly-regarded herds in the Southern Interior. “Everyone knew that Carl and Lona had the heaviest calves,” Butler says. “They really looked after them.” Carl credits Lona with having a sixth sense with animals. “She is a real animal person,” he says. “She really has a way with them.” Today the ranching life is harder and harder to get into, Carl maintains, and he feels badly that more young people aren’t able to do it. “Land is all mortgaged now,” he says, “and there isn’t enough money in it. Husband and wife have to work off the ranch and everything suffers. Someone has to be on the ranch 24/7 if it is going to work.” And that, he maintains, is too bad for a couple of reasons. “Nothing,” he says, “has contributed so much to this area over the years as farming and ranching has. Year in and year out, dollars are put back into the local economy.” In addition, for families, a rural lifestyle is extremely valuable. “People raised on ranches or farms have an advantage,” he says, “because they are used to both the good and the bad.” If that is the case, then Carl and Lona have an advantage indeed.

There will be an important meeting on Saturday, March 31 in the meeting room at the Regional District of the Kootenay Boundary office in Grand Forks at 1 p.m. If you are a producer of any meat, such as poultry, beef, pork, goats, rabbits etc., this meeting is very important for you. If you are thinking about becoming a meat producer, the timing is great and your attendance is welcomed. With the official announcement made by Grand Forks and Boundary Regional Agricultural Society on March 20 in regards to a mobile slaughter unit (MSU), Western Economic Diversification Canada is supporting agriculture development in the region by providing $240,000 to go with the $200,000 already secured from Southern Interior Development Initiative Trust and the provincial meat transition funds. This will insure the MSU will be built and ready for use in the fall of 2012. This is great news for the region and now is the time to come together as a group to discuss the future of meat production in the Boundary. The building of a MSU creates more opportunities for current and future producers wanting to grow meat products. Along with these opportunities come challenges we need to address and overcome. Lastly, there are regulations to be met and standards to develop. As meat producers we

Travolta’s ’96 archangel fantasy a real treat LIZ MARTIN Submitted

Hi movie lovers, this time I would like to write about a wonderful fantasy movie called Michael. It is a most unusual story about an archangel called Michael, superbly played by John Travolta. This is a most unusual angel, a smoking, boozing, sugar-loving, slobby kind of character, who delivers such wisdom when needed. The cast of this film is very good, not

only Mr. Travolta, but Andie MacDowell, Bob Hoskins, William Hurt and last but not least, the late-Robert Pastorelli. It is the story of three reporters sent to try and get a story from an old lady, who claims to have an angel in her home. Jean Stapleton plays this part and it is hard to recognize her, as she looks completely different. Much to the surprise of these keen reporters, down the stairs comes this overweight man, with wings sprouting from his back. They are completely taken aback by his

crass appearance and manners – not a bit like what their idea of an angel was – however after some persuasion, they manage to encourage Michael to come back to their office in Chicago and be seen by their boss (Hoskins).

Grand Forks Fields remains open CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

Despite last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision by the Hudsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay Company (HBC) to close down 141 stores under the Fields banner, the Fields in Grand Forks will remain open. According to Grand Forksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Fields Manager Holly Morgan, another company has purchased several Fields operations, including the location in Grand Forks. Information in regards to whether or not the Christina Lake Fields store will remain open was not available as of press time. Christina Lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fields said they could not make a comment. Tiffany Bourre, HBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s external communications officer, stated the decision was made so that HBC could focus on growing its other banners, including The Bay, Lord & Taylor, and Home Outfitters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a strategic decision by the Hudsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bay Company to focus on growing our other ban-

ners,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fields has entered into a tentative agreement with FHC Enterprises Ltd. to acquire 37 Fields store location leases.â&#x20AC;? FHC Enterprises Ltd. is headed by Jason McDougall, a businessman in metro Vancouver who has been in the retail, wholesale and discount business for over 20 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;HBC is still done with Fields by the fall of this year and we were purchased by another company,â&#x20AC;? said Morgan. Bourre noted that while it is still a tentative agreement, the Fields name is also a part of the agreement. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a timeline for the agreement to be complete, but we expect sometime by the end of this month,â&#x20AC;? Bourre said. Morgan pointed out that if Fields were to close, the impact on the community would have been huge. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are so many basic essential needs that we have that you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get anywhere else,â&#x20AC;? she stated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happy that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re staying and I hear that everyday now.â&#x20AC;?

The B.C. Lung Association is encouraging golf lovers province-wide to golf and save this season by investing in a copy of the B.C. Lung Association’s 2012 Golf Privilege Club membership book. The ultimate in golf savings, the book provides golf lovers with deep discounts and reduced fees at nearly 350 golf courses throughout British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba and even Washington. For just $35, you will not only be paying less to play your favourite sport but you’ll be helping the lives of the one in five British Columbians living with lung disease. “Our membership book saves golfers hundreds of dollars for less than the price of one round of golf. It’s also a great way for golfers to pay less and play more while supporting the lung association’s work to improve lung health in British Columbia,” says Michele Caskey, B.C. Lung Association volunteer director for Grand Forks. Start saving on golf and support the BC Lung Association by purchasing the Golf Privilege Club membership book today at www.golfandsave.ca or by phone at 1-800-665-5864. All proceeds support vital lung health research, advocacy and patient support programs.

❚ REC REPORT

Walking an inexpensive form of exercise, good for health LILLY BRYANT Grand Forks Recreation

If you want to live healthier longer, now is a good time to start with a daily walking exercise routine. All it takes is just 30 minutes of walking a day to help you feel better and younger – invest a little time for a healthier future. As we age, we must take the time to exercise. Walking is a simple but very effective way to fight the war against heart disease, diabetes and other health-related diseases. Walking is one of the easiest ways to improve your health, fitness and overall well-being. At the end of the day, it’s the sum of our steps that determines the state of our health. You may not perceive the few steps to the car or the quick walk home from the grocery store as exercise but it’s the accumulation of this activity, or the lack of it, that can determine whether you’re active and healthy or sedentary and unhealthy. From improving your health and elevating your mood to maintaining a healthy weight, walking is an ideal form of exercise for almost everyone. If you wait until you develop a health problem, you will be spending more than 30 minutes

Raven’s

a day on drugs, surgery and recovery, treatments, getting the medical bills paid and going to appointments. Instead, spend those 30 minutes a day beforehand in an exercise you enjoy. If walking doesn’t work try biking or swimming. If walking is too mild, try running. *** The Love and Sugar walking group is back for another season. The group meets every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at the aquatic centre parking lot and heads out for a walk around the block. This is a self-led walking program and anyone can join. There is no fee to join but be ready for laughs and fun. *** Springtime means getting in shape for the summer and being ready to bike ride or go for hikes. Circuit classes are a great way to get an all around full body workout. Shape up for spring starts Tuesday, April 3 from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. and will run for the month of April and May. Space is limited so call to reserve your spot. For information give us a call at 250-442-2202 or email us at gfplay@rdkb.com. You can also visit our website at www.rdkb. com to view the March flyer.

GFI ORGANIZING COMMITTEE Submitted

The Grand Forks International Baseball Tournament (GFI) is proud to announce that a prominent alumni baseball team will be participating in the 32nd GFI. The University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) is one of the most familiar names in college sports in the United States. In the sports of basketball, football and baseball, the UCLA Bruins have a history of excellence and championships. This team was started in 2005 and the chief architect behind this squad is legendary UCLA Coach Gary Adams. Adams is the winningest coach in UCLA history. In his 30 years at the helm, he led the Bruins to 984 wins and a total of 1,172 victories in his college coaching career. He coached 44 major league players while at UCLA (second most in collegiate baseball history) and was inducted into the prestigious National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Baseball Hall of Fame in 2004 and the UCLA Hall of Fame last November. On a separate note of interest, Adams has also written several children’s books, including The Ladybug Story and So Flat, So Deep, So Far. Sharing the leadership of this team is General Manager Marty Stuka. Marty is a businessman but maintains a heavy involvement in the world of baseball, including the director of international baseball operations for MVP Baseball.

Last year they played a series in the Czech Republic; other trips have included Spain, Italy and Australia. Now in 2012, they will bring their team to James Donaldson Park in Grand Forks. Stuka said a few days ago, “We are getting very excited about the trip to Grand Forks.” GFI President Gerry Foster responded, “We also are excited, and very much looking forward to welcoming this team from Los Angeles to our community and tournament.” This year’s tournament runs from Aug. 29 to Sept. 3.

OBITUARIES

Forget about the future The future is not ours to predict. Nevertheless, some try. In 1899, ❚ View Charles H. Duell commented, “EvFrom erything that can be invented has The been in invented.” He was wrong. Pulpit In 1943, the chairman of IBM, Thomas Watson, predicted that there KEN SCHAUER was a world market for maybe five computers. The president, chairman, and founder of Digital Equipment Corporation said that he saw no reason anyone would want a computer in his or her home. Even Bill Gates was greatly mistaken in his predictions when in 1981 he said, “A computer with 640 K of memory “ought to be enough for anybody.” The computer we have at home has many times the maximum memory that Bill Gates suggested. There was a prediction from an expert at Decca Recording Company that didn’t turn out as expected. He stated, “We don’t like their sound and guitar music is on the way out.” That was his evaluation of the biggest-selling musical group of all times, The Beatles and proved to be very much off the mark. I don’t know what will happen next year, next month or even tomorrow. I do know one thing – our Lord is in the future before we get there and will be with us. Also, in Matthew 6:34: “Therefore do not be anxious about tomorrow, for tomorrow will be anxious for itself. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble.” Committing our life into the hands of Jesus lessens the fear and worries of the future. – Ken Schauer is pastor of the Christ Lutheran Church in Grand Forks

Notice of Passing GEORGE FRANK SHERBININ 1932 - 2012 It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of George Sherbinin, beloved husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather. He was born on June 5, 1932, at Crescent Valley, B.C., and passed away on March 17, 2012, at the age of 79. He will be dearly missed by his wife of 51 years, Maxine; and his children: Carrie (Dale Mader), Alan (Linda), Jill (Craig Harsany) and David (Melanie); and he is lovingly remembered by his grandchildren: Brooklyn, Lisa (Steve), Keri (Darren), Nicholas, Craig, Jordyn, Claye, Reese, Libby and Emmett; and great-grandson, James. Harley (the cat) will also miss him. George is fondly remembered by Jim and Phyllis Olsen (brother-in-law & sister-inlaw), Daphne Sherbinin (sister-in-law), his nephew Guy Owens, and numerous nieces and cousins. He was predeceased by his parents, John and Helen Sherbinin; his sister, Tania (Don Owens); his brother, Johnny; and his brother, Gus. George was also a treasured friend to many. He contributed greatly to the community of Midway, B.C., where he resided almost his entire life. George was involved in the lumber industry, following in the footsteps of his father and grandfather. As a young man, he took over the operations of Boundary Sawmills as vice president, and then later as president (in 1966). After selling the mill to Pope & Talbot in 1969, he stayed on as president for five additional years. He created George Sherbinin Lumber Ltd., a successful wholesale lumber company, and later purchased a small mill operation at Westbridge, B.C., with Jim Olsen that they named S & O Sawmill. George spent many years volunteering for clubs and associations - including the Kettle River Lions Club; president of the Midway Curling Club; director of the Kettle Valley Golf Club; school board member for School District #13; director for Interior Lumber Manufacturer’s Association; director for Interior Labour Relations; director for Silver Lake Forestry Education Center; and director for Pacific Enercon. George and Maxine enjoyed travelling – Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, was always a favourite destination. Summers spent at the cabin on Osoyoos Lake were especially cherished. George loved fishing on the Kettle River, curling, hunting and golfing with family and friends. Family and friends are invited to a celebration of George’s life that will be held at Boundary Central Secondary School at Midway, B.C., at 1 p.m., on Saturday, April 7, 2012. There will be a tea at the Midway Community Hall following the service. In lieu of flowers, the family wishes that contributions be made to the Kettle Valley Bursary & Scholarship Society (KVBSS) in George’s memory. Contributions, payable to K.V.B.S.S., can be sent to Leslie Walker, Box 362, Midway, B.C., V0H-1M0. Condolences and tributes may be directed to the family by visiting: www.nunes-pottinger.com. Arrangements entrusted to Nunes-Pottinger Funeral Service & Crematorium, Oliver and Osoyoos.

Notice of Passing BEATRICE DECOURVILLE February 10, 1910 to March 20, 2012 Bea Decourville peacefully passed away at the age of 102. Bea is survived by her two nieces Joyce Stearn and Marjorie Gackstatter, both of Chemainus, B.C. and her stepson Richard Decourville of New Brunswick. Bea was born in Vancouver. She married Alex Decourville and they resided in several communities throughout the province including OK Falls, Greenwood and Midway. Bea was a kind, gentle person with a great sense of humor. She made a lasting and loving impression on all who came to know her. At Bea’s request there will be no funeral service. She did, however, request that we all remember her fondly and rejoice her life.

Notice of Passing ALICE MAY LATREILLE It is with profound sadness that we share the passing of Alice May Latreille fondly known as Mom, Nan and GG Nan. Nan passed away peacefully at the Hardy View Sunshine Manor on March 21, 2012, at the age of 95, just shortly before her 96th birthday. She was born and raised at Kerr Creek near Midway. She started school in the little old school house just below the Graser (now Lee) farm at Kerr Creek. The school is now a house in Greenwood. From there, many years were spent riding horseback with her brothers, sister and the Horovatin brothers to school at Boundary Falls. At Grandma and Grandpa Grasers’ fox farm at Kerr Creek she met Harold Latreille and they were married in Spokane. They had two children, Herb and Myrtle. Her husband and son both predeceased her. They spent time working at Ingram Creek, Copper Mountain, Princeton, Merritt and the Okanagan. Most of her life was spent raising her family at Greenwood. Nan enjoyed playing bingo and crib, and especially camping and picking huckleberries, gardening and dancing. She was a great cook, always baking treats for everyone, especially donuts and chocolate cake for Dean. Her most precious moments were spent with her family, especially the grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Alice was predeceased by two brothers, Ted Bauer and Bud Pasco. She is survived by her sister, Cecilia Kincaid; brothers, Junior and Jim Pasco and families; seven grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren and five great-great-grandchildren. She had five generations in three ways, which she was very proud of. A special “Thank you” to all the staff at the Hardy View Sunshine Manor who took such good care of Nan while she lived there. We also extend our appreciation and thanks to all the staff at Parkview Manor in Midway where she enjoyed living. Family values, cheerfulness and molding our lives was your greatness! You touched the hearts of everyone who knew you. We will miss you dearly, Mom, Nan and GG Nan. Cremation Services entrusted to The Baker family of Grand Forks Funeral Home.

LANDON ERNEST RICH May 8, 1938 to March 11, 2012 Wild Ride Who would have known an adventure of a lifetime Riding on whirlwind through time Time is a substance from which we are made It carries us along like a river Sometimes the flow is gentle other times a raging torrent Travelling the mountain tops to the valleys below At last to the crossroads of life and death The final ride into eternity Rest in peace my love. He is survived by 13 children, 40 grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. Cremation was on March 14, 2012, at Hanson’s Arbor Funeral Chapels and Crematorium of Kelowna, B.C.

Notice of Passing WILLIAM DOUGLAS THOMSON December 11, 1947 to March 20, 2012 On Tuesday morning, the first day of spring, a day of renewal and rebirth, Dad lost his short but courageous battle to cancer at the age of 64 in Grand Forks, B.C. He passed peacefully with family by his bedside holding his hand. Dad was born at Vancouver, B.C., to William and Elizabeth Thomson. During his boyhood years the family moved from Vancouver to Michel/Natal, then to Mission where he graduated from high school. Following graduation, he joined the Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce where he was promoted with distinction through the ranks to branch manager in various communities in B.C., including: New Denver, Prince George and finally Grand Forks in 1983. He retired in 1993 after 28 years with the bank. In 1996 he fulfilled a long-time ambition with Mom and went ranching up the Burrell with his friend, Walter Austin, on the Burrell Creek Ranch. They all moved back into town when fire destroyed the ranch house in 2003. Doug is lovingly remembered by Sue, his wife of 40 years; son, Peter (Kirsten) and their sons, Liam, Noah, Lyle and Logan of Langley; and his daughter, Melissa of Grand Forks (who has been his rock and care-giver through his illness) and her son, Phoenix (the pride and joy of Dad’s life), who misses his “Papa” very much. His sister, Maureen (Wayne) Booth of Salmon Arm; and his good friend, Walter Austin, also survive him. His son, Christopher, predeceased him in 1982, as have both his parents. Dad was a person of exceptional intelligence with knowledge of many subjects and tried his best to mentor and challenge his cherished grandson, and constant companion, Phoenix. Right to the very end he was planning new projects and set about doing what he could to make life easier and better, to the best of his decreasing ability, for the people he loved but was forced to leave. So much to do, so little time to do it. So much to say in so short a time. Family dinners were frequent, not just on special occasions, but just because we could. Anyone who met Dad will well remember his handshake was second to none. Sometimes our loved ones become more alive to us than ever before. Now we are seeking a new relationship with him, even though he is out of sight. My father requested that we skip a memorial, and celebrate his life later this year. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Boundary Community Hospice Association may be made in his memory. Cremation has taken place. Graham Funeral Home of Oliver, B.C., has been entrusted with care of arrangements.
