Construction on Creston’s waste water treatment plant upgrade project is a step closer to starting, after Creston town council awarded the contract to the team of Maple Reinders and Urban Systems at its regular March 27 meeting. The joint Maple Reinders-Urban Sytems bid came in at $5,785,000, well below the $8,038,000 bid by Graham and AECOM, which was over the project’s $7.1 million budget, which will be split between the Town of Creston, and federal and provincial infrastructure grants. About $6 million of that is left after engineering studies and the installation of a bulk volume fermenter. Within the next month, the agreement is expected to be signed by the government, and town representatives will soon meet with the Ministry of Environment to discuss the project, which will break ground in June. To lessen costs, rather than the usual designbid-build process, in which an engineer creates a plan and a builder bids on it, this project will use the design-build process. “There are so many savings in it compared to the other way,” said Iain Bell, town engineering and public works director, yesterday. With the design-bid-build process, if the builder encounters a problem with the engineer’s design, additional charges can be incurred if the engineer has to redesign that aspect. The design-build process, however, allows the engineer and builder to be in on every decision from the beginning. See WASTE, page 3

ootenay-Columbia member of Parliament David Wilks is encouraging
everyone living in the riding to nominate someone they know for the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. “To celebrate Her Majesty’s 60 years of selfless service and devotion to duty, Governor General David Johnston has announced the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal as a visible and tangible way to recognize outstanding Canadians of all ages and from all walks of life,” said Wilks in a press release. “These medals provide an opportunity to honour exceptional Canadians for their contributions to their fellow citizens, to our communities and our country.” Thirty candidates will be nominated to receive this national honour from the constituency. To be eligible for this honour, a person must be a Canadian citizen or a permanent resident of Canada (but need not necessarily reside in Canada), have made a significant contribution to a particular province, territory, region or community within Canada, or an achievement abroad that brings credit to Canada, and have been alive on Feb. 6, 2012, the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s accession to the throne (the medal can be awarded posthumously, as long as the recipient was alive on that date). Anyone wishing to nominate an individual for this honour should contact Wilks’s office at 250-417-2250 or david.wilks.c1@parl. gc.ca to receive a nomination form, which are also available at www. david-wilks.ca. All forms must be submitted by June 1. The dates and locations of the presentation of the jubilee medals will be announced following the conclusion of the nomination process.

Housing offers independence for the handy capable
From page 1 “During jacking activities, it is necessary to implement a full closure of the structure,” project manager Grant Langton said in a press release. Two 20-minute closures will also take place intermittently each day from April 16-July 13, while bridge bearings are replaced, with pieces being raised and lowered onto temporary, and then permanent bearings. Traffic is currently reduced to singlelane alternating traffic, and temporary traffic signals began operating on April 1. Seismic plans to keep the public informed to make travel easier during the construction. “We will issue further notice prior to us commencing these short duration closures with a view to providing the travelling public with a regular schedule of closures,” said Langton.
From page 1 When this project was initially conceived through the design-bid-build process, bidders said a new UV disinfection and office remodelling would cost too much. Both were included, however, in the Maple Reinders-Urban Sytems bid. The team is also keeping costs down by hiring local workers, including Valleywide Concrete, Mayday Electric and Hedlund Contracting. “They’re the one group that showed significant interest in local employment,” said Bell. “They will try and source whatever they can locally. Overall, we’re hoping it will be a nice boost for some in the valley.” The decision to approve the project team was unanimous among the five councillors who voted. Coun. Tanya Ducharme left the room for the vote, after she declared a conflict of interest because her employer, the Columbia Brewery, which pays a large percentage of sewer fees that will help cover the town’s share, was mentioned in the resolution. A separate motion was made at the March 27 meeting to engage an individual to act as the town’s agent, who would, among other duties, conduct site visits and inspections at the project site. “It’s a lot for us to take on,” Bell said at the meeting. An agent of this type usually charges between one and three per cent of the project price, which could range between $60,000 and $180,000. Coun. Jerry Schmalz said he would have preferred the fee to range between one and two per cent, but joined Ducharme and Couns. Joanna Wilson, Scott Veitch, Judy Gadicke and Wes Graham in passing the motion. Town staff expect the fee to come in at the lower end of the range as this project is not overly complex and has been planned well. “Most of the work has been done inhouse,” Bell told council.
BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff A 12-unit apartment complex at 1140 Scott Street called Glaser Terrace has become such a familiar site that its purpose and history are easily overlooked. With the motto, “Independence — that’s living,” the complex has played an important part in lives of many residents since its construction. The apartments are all wheelchair accessible and for 25 years they have embodied a dream the late Albert Ward had. Ward, an accountant, was confined to a wheelchair when he took a trip to Idaho with friends Wayne Salmond and Doug Gatzke, along with their wives. Salmond and Gatzke were also wheelchair-bound and Ward presented them with the idea for construction of residences that would be accessible to people with mobility challenges. The group got to work, contacting everyone they knew in the area who was in a wheelchair, and soon meetings were scheduled. Former mayor Lela Irvine and councillor Ed Gatzke got involved and on Oct. 20, 1988, a representative of BC Housing Management Corporation, Allen Campbell, was invited to Creston to hear about the group’s plans for specially constructed one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments. Salmond was a downtown hardware store owner and a minor hockey coach — he organized the first John Bucyk Hockey School — before he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. When his illness eventually forced him to sell the business and get around in a wheelchair, he was adamant that he wasn’t “handicapped”. He exemplified the attitude shared by others as the housing project was planned, saying, over and over again, “We’re not handicapped because we are in wheelchairs, we’re handy capable.” And capable they were. The Handy Capable Housing Society (HCHS) was formed on Nov. 29, 1988.

Glaser Terrace has wheelchair-accessible housing, and is run by the Handy Capable Housing Society.
The founding directors included Gatzke and Salmond, along with Faye Davidson, Margaret Braithwaite, Jean Ward (Albert’s wife), Mac Chernoff, Mary Angus, Michael Helm and Claire Sorenson. The society was awarded a grant for nearly $1 million in the following year, and the dream for accessible housing started to become a reality. Land on Scott Street was secured, in part because it backed onto undeveloped land that would become Schikurski Park. Calgary architect Dave Coupland arrived with the initial set of blueprints and the building committee — Salmond, Chernoff, Angus and Jean Ward — met to ensure all the newest features in accessibility were incorporated into the plans. Wide hallways, kitchens adapted to wheelchair heights, preset temperature controls on taps, wheel-in showers, second en suite bathrooms in the two- and three-bedroom units, washers and dryers in each suite and spacious rooms were some of the many features incorporated. When the plan was finalized, it included four one-bedroom units, six two-bedroom units and two three-bedroom units. Each included a carport and sundeck. Accessible basement storage rooms, a recreation room and a guest suite completed the package. Each apartment was designed to look over the quiet park setting. Contractor John Anonby and his crew went to work and site was a hive of activity for months. Such was the demand for accessible housing that by the time former MLA Howard Dirks cut the ribbon at the Glaser Terrace grand opening on May 24, 1991,
PAWS Volunteer of the Month for March is

only two units remained vacant. “It takes tremendous energy and solid organizational skills to make a housing project work,” Dirks said, giving credit to Ward, Gatzke and Salmond, along with the many others who had worked to bring the project to completion. Today, the non-profit HCHS continues to manage Glaser Terrace, with a group of eight volunteer directors. Its affiliation with BC Housing ensures that the units — each of which is more than 1,000 square feet — remain affordable. A maximum of 30 per cent of a household’s gross monthly income can be charged to low- and middle-income families. What happens when there isn’t sufficient demand for the units by people in wheelchairs? The HSCS mission statement covers that eventuality: “To provide wheelchair accessible housing that will make independent living possible for those in need of such accommodation and when this need has been demonstrably fulfilled to make said housing available for others.” Joe Snopek is the HCHS president, a fitting position because he served as a town councillor when Irvine was mayor. “Glaser Terrace has been a real asset to our community,” Snopek said. “We have a tremendous board and it’s an honour to be involved in this project.” More information about the units and their availability can be obtained by writing to the HCHS at P.O. Box 443, Creston, BC, V0B 1G5 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. (Thanks to HCHS secretary-treasurer Al Garrecht for providing information.)

BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor
The Kootenai Community Centre Society is raising funds for its residential youth housing project, and helping out will be the Surrogate Band, a Pink Floyd tribute band featuring former Creston resident Micah Snow. The band is an ensemble formed at Nelson’s Selkirk College, where Snow is in the contemporary music program, and was a perfect fit. “There are different ensembles formed at college, and this year one of my teachers decided to start a Pink Floyd ensemble,” he said. “I’ve got all their albums and pretty much anything they ever recorded.” Surrogate will play at the Prince Charles Theatre on April 13, and will be joined by Creston’s own Nightshade, featuring Rick Potyok and Erich Schmidt on guitar, Jan MacDonald on bass and Neil Ripski on drums. The event will also feature a silent auction and door prizes, including a prize for the best 1970s costume. The 20-year-old Snow was born in Montana and moved with his parents, Susan and Gary, to Creston in the mid1990s, and although his father always played, the Surrogate guitarist-vocalist didn’t try the guitar until he was 13. “I played sax for few years before I

ever discovered the guitar, then all went downhill from there,” he said with a laugh. “What really inspired me to pick it was watching the Jack Black movie, School of Rock. I discovered bands like Black Sabbath and Led Zeppelin through that and wanted to be those guys.” Snow has played over a dozen times in Creston, but next week’s concert marks his first time since 2010 and his first with Surrogate. “The feeling of being on stage and having the ability to really express your-
self and have that many people into it,” are among his favourite things about performing, he said. “It’s almost like a high.” Joining Snow in the Surrogate Band are Steven Lee (keyboards, vocals), Pat McTaggart (bass guitar, vocals), Andrew McBain (drums) and Selkirk guitar program head Darren Mahe (lead guitar, vocals). The handpicked ensemble is looking forward to the fundraiser. “I figure if we’re going to be playing some music there, the fact that we’re going to be helping out a cause like that
Community Pride wants to refresh murals, register for Bloom contest BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor The student-painted murals on 10th Avenue North and around the Cook Street parking lot may not be around much longer. Coun. Jerry Schmalz relayed concerns from the Community Pride committee to town council at the March 27 regular meeting, and suggested that the murals, which are over 15 years old and showing signs of age, be painted over or replaced. “We would have council write a letter to the school district to find out if they are interested in enhancing them,” said Schmalz. “And if not, we are going to paint them over.” Coun. Judy Gadicke, a teacher at Canyon-Lister Elementary School, suggested waiting until September because of the current political climate in the schools, but the motion to contact the school district immediately was passed. Community Pride, which is funded by the town, also requested that the town spend $150 to register for Communities in Bloom, which, according to its website, is a “Canadian non-profit organization committed to fostering civic pride, environmental responsibility and beautification through community involvement and the challenge of a national program, with focus on the promotion and value of green spaces in urban settings.” Registering for the program and contest allows Creston to get advice on how to improve, and then be in stronger position to do it later. Council passed the motion to pay the registration fee, although not without some concerns. “Isn’t this a water hog?” asked Coun. Wes Graham. “There are a lot of drought-resistant plants,” Coun. Tanya Ducharme explained.
Town passes readings of five-year plan BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor
Creston town council passed three readings of the town’s 2012-2016 financial plan at the March 27 regular meeting, following a presentation by finance and corporate services director Steffan Klassen. All three readings were passed by Couns. Joanna Wilson, Scott Veitch, Tanya Ducharme and Judy Gadicke, with Couns. Wes Graham and Jerry Schmalz opposing. “The only concern I have with the five-year plan is the cut to our grants-inaid,” said Graham. “Other than that, I think we’re moving forward in a positive manner.” “I felt we needed to be stronger and cut a little deeper in the process,” said Schmalz. If approved on April 10, the five-year plan would see a 12.5 per cent tax increase to homeowners’ gross tax bills at the end of five years, which covers a 36 per cent municipal tax increase due to the transfer of RCMP costs to the town when the 2011 census found the population was over 5,000. Taxation due to police costs starts with a 3.3 per cent increase this year, and a $1.1 million reserve fund will help smooth the tax increase more evenly over the next five years. Non-police core expenditures have been kept relatively flat, with no increase for 2012 and an average of 1.5 per cent increase each subsequent year for exist-
ing services. New increases can be made at council’s discretion. “All inflation is funded by cuts,” said Klassen. High priority projects were approved to go ahead as planned in 2012, and the town will spend $1,254,000 on vehicle replacement, traffic safety improvements, paving and chip sealing, and trails and sidewalks. The town’s water fund and sewer funds will see total budgeted expenditures increase 8.1 and 77.9 per cent, respectively, due to timing of capital projects (operating expenses are down 3.5 per cent for water and 3.4 per cent for sewer). Water spending includes projects being done on the Arrow Creek system, $20,000 being spent on the Water Smart program and $217,000 going toward pipe replacement and pressure reducing valves. Sewers will see $5,890,000 spent in 2012, with the majority being on the new waste water treatment plant upgrade, tagged at $4,540,000. Most of that budget was slated to be used in 2011, but construction was delayed until a more costeffective plan was developed. The next steps on the Town of Creston financial calendar are the committee of the whole tax rate review on April 3, adoption of the five-year financial plan bylaw and three readings of the tax rate bylaw at the April 10 regular meeting, and adoption of the tax rates bylaw on April 24. Tax notices will be prepared and mailed in May, and a public report will be presented in June.

Commission to rule on rights
If the BC Utilities Commission rules, as is quite likely, that the installation of what are commonly known as smart meters, is fine for electricity providers, consumers could face a classic case of Hobsonâ€™s choice. After receiving copies of documents being forwarded to the commission by local residents, I took advantage of an opportunity recently and asked a FortisBC representative if residents will have to choose between allowing smart meters or having electricity in their homes. It would be the utilities commissionâ€™s decision, he said, but it does have the right to order electricity providers to offer an opt-out clause. Such an order seems unlikely to me, given that the premise for Fortis and BC Hydroâ€™s plan to install the high-tech meters is to save costs. Customers who opt out would cost the utilities proportionately more to serve than they do now, because their systems wouldnâ€™t be designed to provide alternatives. Thus, we are about to witness a showdown between companies that are literally directed by the utilities commission to keep consumer costs down and individuals who, for a variety of reasons, are vehemently opposed to having smart meters in their homes. Locally, Dr. Imme Askevold and Carol Ann Oâ€™Learo, and no doubt many others, have been waging a battle against what FortisBC refers to as advanced metering infrastructure. They have written letters to the BC Utilities Commission and gathered a massive amount of information, scientific and otherwise, to back their contention that the proposed meters are a bad idea.
â€œPlease do not allow these corporations to install such devices, all they see is how they will generate dollars and power (and I donâ€™t mean just electrical),â€? Askevold writes
emitting meters will save costs by eliminating the need for door-todoor meter readers and also by allowing consumers to become more aware of their power usage habits, which they can then adjust if they want to save money. Part of the problem lies in my perception, at least, that every time a large corporation offers us a cheaper solution to something, it never seems to translate into more dollars in our pockets. Shareholders and Lorne Eckersley executives seem to be the major beneficiaries. That after citing health concerns based on might not quite be the case with a science. â€œCrestonites are not the only utility, which is highly regulated to community concerned about these the point of its ability to make profmeters.â€? its, but itâ€™s easy to sympathize with Oâ€™Learo has told the commission a wary public. that she will not allow a smart meter The rights of the individual have to be installed in her home. taken a severe beating in the last â€œPlease be notified that there will decade or more and it seems like not be a â€˜smart meterâ€™ installed at only a matter of time before citizens the address of Ms Oâ€™Learo,â€? she begin to say enough is enough. writes. â€œIâ€™m sure you are all well Consumers will argue that just aware of the dangers of EMF (elecbecause they want or need to purtromagnetic field) waves emitted chase a product or a service, it from these meters â€”as if we arenâ€™t doesnâ€™t follow that they want more inundated with enough of them and more intrusion into their peralready via cellphones/towers, sonal lives.

Dike issue a conflict over area’s policy To the Editor: In response to Lorne Eckersley’s opinion pieces (“Blockages a barrier to support,” March 15 Advance, and “Lake not accessible to all,” March 22 Advance) on the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area (CVWMA), I would like to begin at a point where we can all agree: We have a 17,000-acre treasure in this valley that is a migratory pathway for numerous waterfowl and home to many creatures, some listed as endangered species and others at risk. The act governing the CVWMA is clear: “The Creston Valley wildlife management area is continued for wildlife conservation, management and development of its wildlife, and is held by the government in trust for those purposes.” It is not surprising that differences of opinion will occur when the priorities of habitat management and operational responsibilities bump up against the varied interests of people who appreciate and enjoy the wetlands. We welcome constructive criticism, but criticism is hard to take when facts are distorted. For example, the caption under the photo on your website reads: “One of several barriers to access on the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area’s dikes.” For the record, this dike does not belong to the CVWMA. It is owned by the Duck Lake Diking District (DLDD). The authority for the management of this dike and its access rests with the DLDD. It’s worth noting that this dike does not restrict general access to Duck Lake; it simply restricts vehicle access to a small portion of a dike. The petition referred to in the article is an appeal for more vehicle access on all CVWMA dikes, and, although it doesn’t specifically state this, on all DLDD dikes as well, so that people can drive around Duck Lake and can have access to Leach Lake via the old Summit Creek campground. The CVWMA’s policy is that it should limit vehicle access on all dikes, to the extent possible, for environmental, ecological, financial and dike integrity reasons. This policy was taken after careful consideration; it was decided that the protection of wildlife and the prevention of further damage to the dikes took precedence over vehicle traffic. Both the authority and the staff believe that this policy accords with sound wetland management based on experience and the considered expertise of wetland scientists, Ducks Unlimited and independent researchers throughout the world. It is a defensible, scientifically-based policy that is consistent with the requirements of our act. When policies conflict with what others would like to see, management teams are going to be seen to fail in the eyes of those who have an opposing view. Communication is indeed important and we welcome and encourage residents, including the publisher of the Advance, to visit us any time to discuss concerns. Our willingness to discuss these issues is illustrated by our meetings with the Creston town council, the Creston Valley Rod and Gun Club, the Rotary club and with our Regional District of Central Kootenay director. More recently, the provincial representative on the authority met with Gordon and Barb Olgivie, the initiators of the petition; this was followed by a detailed letter explaining our policy. In addition, we regularly submit articles regarding projects and habitat mainte-
nance to the Creston Valley Advance and I Love Creston. We routinely send out over 5,000 newsletters by regular mail and email to those who have expressed an interest in receiving them. We have a new website and a Facebook page, which are continually updated with current information and we respond promptly to all enquiries. My point is that this is not a communication issue but a disagreement over policy. It is not possible to please everyone, and at times it may be that the best we can do is to agree to disagree. But I would like to end by returning to the beginning. We have a world-class wetland in the Creston Valley, and If we work together we can ensure that this treasure will be here for the enjoyment of our children and grandchildren and for all those creatures that make this their home. Richard Dalon CVWMA CEO
Dikes restrict access to local nature To the Editor: I want to thank Lorne Eckersley for his column (“Blockages a barrier to support”) in the March 15 Advance regarding the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area’s policy change to dike access that excludes vehicular traffic. I, too, believe “light sightseer-type” traffic would not compromise dike structure. The Duck Lake restrictions impede the enjoyment of many of all ages. Here I wish to remind of one group in particular. Our valley has a large retired population, many of whom find pleasure, healing and soul-searching when exploring this valley’s rich wildlife habitats. For some, access to nature, including the CVWMA, was impetus for choosing this place as home. I am an avid birder and self-declared naturalist. I am also getting older, with a mind that thinks I can walk and hike as when young, and a body that often does not follow. Vehicle reconnaissance accompanied by intermittent foray answers to this discrepancy. Yes, there will be those few prone to illegal activity — and one doesn’t have to be a mathematician to know that the wildlife area’s two or three paid employees, no matter what their expertise, is not a “policing” agency. Expecting biologists to be so engaged would be counterproductive to a sane job description, not to mention expertise. Barring vehicles, however, will not stop bad behaviour — the CVWMA’s barrier raises defence for the marijuana growers. Access to Duck Lake dikes is easy by boat. Those with criminal intent gravitate to places “safe” from prying eyes. In that respect, dikes devoid of slowwheeled traffic (often binocular toting) and a subsequent lessening of foot traffic, except in those predictable areas in close proximity to the barriers, can only be helpful to this type of individual. I believe the adage is, “Locked doors only keep out honest people.” The vast majority of users not only have great respect and integrity for the natural world, but they are often quite knowledgeable and continually inquisitive of such, tend to be eyes and ears that notice and report disruptions from the norm and, as well, tutor others of nature’s intrinsic beauty and value. Imagine such an asset at CVWMA’s disposal — an unpaid, self-sustained, self-motivated citizen based “police” force (of all ages) who “work” seven
days a week including holidays — and are mobilized only by being given a feeling of acceptance, comradeship, respect and recognition! The CVWMA mandate, written in their 2004 habitat management plan, was forged with strong public consultation. It states that access to Duck Lake can be by vehicle from the western edge and from the Sirdar side. Access change to any part is not justified without adequate reason that is explored with public input. Sharon Laughlin Lister
More care needed by dog owners To the Editor: I am writing this to you because of an incident that happened the night of March 8 that has left me heartbroken and distraught. This happened in the 1200 block of Birch and 14th Avenue. I know that this town has bylaws against dogs roaming free, yet this night in question someone’s dog or dogs killed my cat. She was in her own yard when this happened. She was not antagonizing these dogs; she was doing her business. This dog or dogs were brutal and swift. With one shake they broke her neck. My question is, why wereNOW these dogs allowed to roam free at night? Are you, RECYCLING the owners, so lazy that you cannot take LEAD your dog out to do its business? You have left my heart shattered. ACID Thank you so much for your inconsiderVEHICLE ate behaviour. Because of you I have lost my best friend. And, yes,BATTERIES I am angry. Do you, as the owner of this dog or dogs in question, realize what will happen if this is allowed to continue? Dogs when left to roam will eventually start to form a pack. Once these dogs get this pack mentality, they will start to bring down bigger and bigger prey. Next time, it may not be someone’s pet, and the next time it could be someone’s child. Wake up, dog owners, please. I beg you. Keep your dogs in at night. Just because no one is up at this time in the morning does not mean your dogs are not causing problems or heartbreak. Maggie McGregor Creston
Meetings needed about taxes To the Editor: After a number of letters to the editor, public meetings (like the one on March 13 in the West Creston Hall with Creston and District Community Complex manager Randy Fediuk, hosted by Regional Dsitrict of Central Kootenay Area C director Larry Binks) and getting very positive feedback from valley residents, I believe we are ready for action. What I have in mind is a set of meaningful (and I mean meaningful) public meetings, no fewer than two, perhaps as many as four. In attendance should be area A, B and C directors, the mayor, the rec centre manager and RCMP staff sergeant, and possibly Columbia Basin Trust and Gleaners society representatives. See REC, page 8

Honey is a sweet, versatile substitute for sugar Honey is another local product that we’re very fortunate to have a good supply of in the valley. Honey, as long as it’s
Locavore's Cookbook Heidi Bjarnason
kept raw and not heated to above 95 F (or above body temperature), has many health benefits. While honey is essentially a sugar and should be eaten in moderation, it does contain many other health
Opinion Line benefits that processed white and brown sugar do not contain. If honey is heated it destroys the natural enzymes that are responsible for many of the health benefits. Even when heated, cooked in a dish or baked into something, it’s still a healthier, natural choice for a sweetener because it contains small amounts of various vitamins and minerals, including vitamins B2 and B6, iron and manganese, and because the composition of the sugars, it is better for blood sugar levels. Honey is naturally anti-bacterial, antiviral and anti-fungal. Natural honey (made from bees that feed on flowers and not refined sugar) that is kept raw actually contains healthy bacteria, which may be why it’s such a good remedy for things like a sore throat, cough and even an upset stomach. It’s a natural remedy for many other things, and may even help people with seasonal allergies, as long as they are consuming local honey, as the bees use pollen from the flowers causing the allergies. Honey, however, should not be fed to babies under 12 months old as it can contain spores that cause botulism, which can be life-threatening. It is safe for older children and anyone else to enjoy honey, though. Honey should be stored in an airtight container to prevent it from absorbing any moisture. If it’s stored properly, in a sealed container and in a cool, dry place, honey can keep for a very long time as it doesn’t spoil. Eventually, the honey will crystallize, but it is easily turned back into a liquid by gently heating it, or it can be used
in solid form, stirred into hot drinks or spread on toast or crackers. Honey should not be microwaved as this will heat it too much, killing enzymes and changing the flavor, but it can be warmed by setting the container in warm water until the honey liquefies (be careful not to put cold glass into hot water as it will break). Honey is slightly sweeter than typical sugar, so when replacing sugar in recipes the amount of honey can be reduced. Keep in mind that honey is a liquid, though, so when baking, the amount of dry ingredients to liquid ingredients will need to be changed, as well. Baked goods that contain honey also brown faster than baked goods made with different sugars and sweeteners. You can reduce this by reducing the baking temperature by 25 degrees and increasing the baking time. Keep in mind that darker honeys will have more flavor, while honey that is lighter in color will be the mildest in flavor, so some will be better for certain dishes or baked goods than others. There has been a lot of attention put on honey lately, because of the amount of “fake” honey being sold. Some honey comes from bees that are just fed plain sugar or processed corn syrup. The resulting honey is no better than refined white sugar because that’s where it came from. This is just more reason to support local beekeepers so that you know where your honey is coming from. While it’s still beneficial to choose honey over sugar in cooking and baking, it is best to consume some raw for the health benefits. We enjoy it stirred into plain yogurt, mixed with peanut butter or

almond butter as a dip for apples and other fruit, added to smoothies and, of course, stirred into tea and drizzled (or spread) onto toast. We use it in no-bake granola bars and other treats, as well.

No-Bake Cherry Almond Granola Bars Makes 10-12 small granola bars 3/4 C crispy cereal (look for whole grains with very little if any added sugar) 3/4 C puffed grain cereal (such as puffed wheat) 3/4 C old-fashioned rolled oats 2 tbsp ground flax seed 1/3 C roughly chopped dried cherries (or other dried fruit chopped into small pieces) 1/4 C raw honey 1/2 C natural almond butter (or natural peanut butter; for a nut free option use sunflower seed butter) 1 tsp vanilla pinch salt 1/2-1 tsp cinnamon
Prepare an 8x8 pan by lightly oiling it, or just lining with wax paper. In a bowl, mix the cereals and oats. Set aside. Warm the honey and almond butter slightly if it’s not already liquid at room temperature. Mix in the ground flax, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix very well. Press the mixture into the pan and flatten with the back of a spatula. Place in the fridge till firm, carefully remove from the pan and very carefully cut into bars. The bars may break and crumble slightly, just press back together. Wrap individually, place inside a sealable bag and store in a cool place, either the fridge or freezer. Heidi Bjarnason is a Creston Valley mom and blogger.

From page 7 Prior press announcement would ensure good all-inclusive attendance. Short, three- to five-minute presentations by Fediuk, RDCK representatives and myself (to bridge possible bias) could be followed by questions, ideas and suggestions from the public. That could be led by our hero trio, Jesse Willicome, Tamara Fox and Joanne Ferry (who saved the day during last election by hosting an excellent public forum with candidates). The aim would be to find and implement steps that will lower the tax burden on residents and fill the rec centre with kids and adults alike. The first meeting should be a fact-finding and idea-gathering mission. Following meetings would select the best workable options, test and implement them. If wide consensus is found, a binding resolution would be most helpful. In order to make meetings more attractive and to promote the rec centre to the public, a loonie happy hour for kids, friends or relatives of those in attendance would help, as well. In the worst case scenario, if there is no solution, the public will exactly know where we stand. In the best case, we will prove that in this greedrun world there are still people who care about fellow citizens and are ready to work for common good. If we make it work, our model can help other rec centre facilities in a similar situation. Vladimir Certik West Creston

Copy of Hunger Games trilogy to be well-read If you haven’t read The Hunger Games or the other two books in the trilogy, Catching Fire and Mockingjay, and you are thinking of going to the movie when it arrives at the Tivoli, you might want to get on the reserve list fairly soon. There is always a jump on reserves when a book is made into a movie, and in this case, apparently a very successful movie. One of our staff members recommended the book to the rest of us long before hearing about the movie and those of us who read the books gave emphatic thumbs up and look forward to seeing the movie.

Thirty-three, and condemned to die by crucifixion (only the “worst” of criminals were executed this way), Jesus was nailed to the cross by His hands and feet. Each nail was six to eight inches long. The nails were driven through His wrists, crushing or severing the median nerve, causing excruciating, searing “red hot” pain through His arms. His feet were nailed together. He was forced to support Himself on the single nail that impaled His feet to the cross. To breathe, Jesus had to painfully lift His sagging body with His legs. Imagine the pain, the suffering. Nails through His hands and feet. See and hear the hammer blows driving large nails through the wrist, and nailing the overlapped feet, and then the cross being dropped into a hole to stand it vertical. Jesus poured out His blood; Jesus gave His all, for you and me. Then there were the smell, the flies, the insects, the hot sun. And the humiliation of hanging naked before the taunting crowd. But before the nails, Jesus had been scourged so severely that it lacerated the flesh on His back. The crown of thorns cut deeply into His scalp. Blood ran freely down His face and beard. He

Visitor centre promotes area Vehicle
Spring is officially here and so is the start of the busy tourist season in the Creston Valley. The Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce operates the local visitor centre for the Town of Creston and Regional District of Central Kootenay areas B and C. Funded in part by the
Business Focus Jim Jacobsen
Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Innovation, we are members of the BC Visitor Centres network and are available to provide people with tourist information, assistance and advice. Identified by the distinctive blue-and-yellow logo, we provide a wide range of visitor services, including professional visitor counseling, helpful travel information and literature, and accommodation reservations. Throughout B.C., visitor centres specialize in community information and provincial itinerary planning with friendly and personalized service. Last year, over 15,000 visitors come into the centre (located in the Armitage Building at 121 Northwest Blvd.) asking for directions, looking for accommodations and/or a place to eat, things to do and to use the public washroom. We keep daily records and report them back to the ministry. Tourists come from all over but predominantly from other parts of B.C., Alberta, the United States, Australia, New Zealand and central Europe (Germany, Austria and Switzerland). Visitor centres are often the first place of contact for tourists. We are constantly working to improve the visitor experience, pique their interest in the community and encourage longer stays. We have a rotating display of local
art in the building — currently the Wynndel Arts Centre has its works exhibited. We will also be a location of the annual Artwalk/ Artdrive. Last year, we added the large electronic message board outside so we can run community event notices around the clock. We added RV signage, encouraging RV traffic to stop and shop in the Creston Valley, and added free Wi-Fi. We just changed our display shelves inside, making it easier to browse through the brochures and local information. In March, we received a tourism grant and are adding a 3D map of the Columbia Basin, a big screen TV for showing local images, new potted plants and a bike rack for outside, and a baby change table. Annually, the chamber of commerce publishes, in partnership with the Creston Valley Advance, a comprehensive visitors’ guide magazine. The magazine includes maps, the ferry schedule, the Farm Fresh Guide and is a great introduction to our community. The 2012 Visitors’ Guide will be available this month. We constantly work with Hello BC, Kootenay Rockies Tourism and the International Selkirk Loop to keep information current. In January, KRT launched the Kootenay App, a mobile directory of things to see and do in the Creston Valley. Now, if we can just get some sunshine… Another sign of spring is the upcoming Home and Garden Show on April 20 and 21 at the Creston and District Community Complex. The Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce puts on this annual trade show. It is a great opportunity for local businesses to showcase their products, promote new lines, increase awareness and reach new customers. 3,000 people will attend the show. This year, we have partnered with Columbia Basin Trust and Home Hardware Building Centre. There are still spaces available. To book your booth, call the chamber of commerce at 250-428-4342. Jim Jacobsen is the executive director of the Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce.

access to Leach Lake not needed
To the Editor: I, for one, appreciate Cyril Colonel’s efforts to have a somewhat maintained road to the southern end of Duck Lake (“Lake not accessible to all,” page 6, March 22 Advance). I think some extra funding has to be found beyond what the Creston Valley Wildlife Manage-
ment Area can afford. It doesn’t have extra monetary resources anymore and has to put some present projects, which are necessary, on hold. Personally, I believe the CVWMA’s rules of access to Leach Lake are the right call. The top (farthest in) half of the road systems in Leach Lake are incapable of handling vehicle traffic without quickly becoming quagmires. As it is now, they are excellent cycling, hiking and cross-country skiing roads. I encourage bikers to access the area. It is an easy and enjoyable ride. Keep up the good work, Cyril. You have been an excellent ambassador for the Creston area for many years. Pat Doyle Creston

Moore said that those who are untrained often undercut professionals. “I think we can monitor it,” Moore said. “If we came to a point in 24 months that we felt it wasn’t going to work ... we could change it. But it’s hard for us to make them get certified if we don’t have the tool in place.” Regardless of cost, the fire code, he added, requires that the person performing this work be qualified to do the work. “It’s really about public safety and the belief that the people offering a public service should be certified,” Moore said.

All agreed that communicating with Creston business owners was key to making the proposal work, and Ducharme suggested proving businesses with a “cheat sheet” to help identify reputable inspectors. “The biggest thing they have to ask for is that they’re certified” and have inspectors show their credentials and identification, said Moore. “We’re not targeting the local businesses.

CBT wants to expand Internet infrastructure BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor Through its Columbia Basin Broadband Corporation, the Columbia Basin Trust wants to provide the Internet throughout the region by means of an open access broadband network, CBT chief operating officer Mark Halwa told Creston town council at its regular March 27 meeting. With about a half-dozen interested parties in the audience, Halwa made a presentation that outlined the CBT’s plans for creating a network, which would allow both large providers, such as Telus and Shaw, and local service providers to offer customers a 100-megabyte/second connection. While large companies can offer high-speed services in larger centres, connecting small and rural communities doesn’t provide the necessary return on investment to make it worthwhile. But if the non-profit CBBC creates the infrastruc-
ture, those services will become possible. “They will be able to provide a better service through us,” said Halwa. The CBBC currently connects Golden, Trail and Castlegar, and will connect other communities — if those communities want it to — by using municipalities as the main hub for the local network. “We stop there, and private enterprise takes it from there,” said Halwa. “We’re here to enable service providers ... not take away from them.” There are currently 290 Internet service providers in the Columbia Basin; low bandwidth and a variety of services types are keeping a regional network from flourishing. The easiest way to deliver the product to Creston, he said, would be to bring it to the library, and then bury a conduit to connect the network to town hall. Once service providers are on the network, they can provide services to whomever they

wish. Providers will have to apply to sell off the network, ensuring the most stable ones get to use it. As many as meet the requirements can get on board, allowing for greater competition. “In the end, that does benefit the consumer,” said Halwa. In many communities, connecting to the CBBC network will mean a bit of work — not every community has conduit in place waiting for this opportunity. Halwa suggested that municipalities should pass a conduit bylaw, so that when sewer or water lines are dug up for repair, fibre-optic conduit is buried with them. There has been a lot of interest in the network, Halwa said. “The very first things that get asked are, ‘How much is it going cost?’ and ‘When is it coming to my house?’ ” he said. And he’s looking forward to the day when the CBBC provides the backbone for Internet in everybody’s house. “Columbia Basin Trust will

Projects ranged from environmental to engineering to health sciences, researched by students from Adam Robertson, Erickson and Canyon-Lister elementary schools, Homelinks, Yaqan Nukiy School and School of Self Design. This year, Regan Sanderson and Carter Pelly won the Hallman Trophy for their physics experiment, “Put a Cap on it!” The organizers appreciate the efforts of the judges and the event’ sponsors, the Creston-Kootenay Foundation and Overwaitea Foods.

The Beebe Family is hosting an Open House on July 14, 2012 in Yahk, BC. Details to follow in June!
It is with great sadness that the family of Marcel Lamontagne announces the passing of their beloved Husband, Father and Papa on Monday March 19, 2012 at the age of 70 years. Marcel, the youngest of thirteen children, was born February 12, 1942 in Rockglen, Saskatchewan to Emile and Angelique Lamontagne. He began his schooling in the small French community of Lisieux, Sask. In 1951 the family moved to the beautiful Creston Valley where he fell in love with the mountains and developed his passion for the outdoors. He attended Wynndel Elementary and Prince Charles Secondary School in Creston. He left home at an early age to work at a logging camp in Northern Alberta and for Parks Canada. He returned to Creston at the age of 19 and began his employment at Columbia Brewing Company, a career that would span 45 years. He worked at many different jobs in the brewery and eventually found that he was happiest as a truck driver delivering beer locally and around the province. Marcel was a proud and dedicated employee who was always professional and supportive of his co-workers and a mentor to many over the years. In 1962, Marcel met, fell in love and later married Loretta Salvador on June 26, 1965. The couple would have celebrated 50 years of their lives together. He was a devoted family man to his wife, children and grandchildren and he will be dearly missed. He was an avid outdoorsman who spent his free time ďƒžshing, hunting, hiking, riding his quad and being at peace in nature. A favourite pastime was to spend a day in the woods cutting ďƒžrewood - the sound of a chainsaw was music to his ears. Over the years Marcel shared his knowledge of the outdoors with his family and friends. Marcel was predeceased by his parents Emile and Angelique Lamontagne; his three brothers Paul, Leo and Guy; ďƒžve sisters Bernice Iaci, Lillian Dash, Terry Chilson, Alice Fafard and Doris Ferguson, and his parents-in-law Louis and Olga Salvador. Marcel is survived by his loving wife Loretta; daughter Michelle (Tony) Dolinar; grandsons Jacob and Matthew of Armstrong, BC; son Greg of Wynndel, BC and granddaughters Emma and Myrriah. He is also survived by his sisters Marie Ridge of Kamloops, BC, Eveline Guest-Teich of Houston, Texas, Aurore Faucher of Rockglen, SK, and Joan Forseth of Langley, BC, along with numerous nieces, nephews and extended family. A private Family Service was held March 23, 2012. Donations may be made in Marcel's name to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
Obituaries Ann Lois (Hook) Staples April 20, 1912 ~ October 2, 2011
Ann Staples passed away October 2, 2011 at Swan Valley Lodge, Creston, BC at the age of 99 years. Ann was born April 20, 1912 in Sandpoint, Idaho and lived there with her parents, Albert C. Hook and Anna Hook, a short time until they moved the family to Spokane, WA. She received all her education in Spokane, graduating from St. Augustine's Elementary School, Lewis and Clark High School, Kinmans's Business College, with a degree in Business Administration and was a graduate of Schultz's Beauty School. She also was a trained concert singer and performed many times in Spokane, and was a member of the choir at Our Lady of Lourdes Cathedral. Ann lived and worked in Spokane until after the death of her grandmother, Mary Elizabeth Grady, when her mother and her siblings moved to Wynndel to take over the fruit orchard and property. Ann purchased a beauty salon in Creston and in December, 1941 she went to Vancouver to take her exams for her BC certiďƒžcate in beauty work. When she returned to Creston, she met and married her husband, Edwin "Ted" Palmer Staples on October 28, 1942. After his army service, they settled in Creston, where they made their home for the next 47 years. They had three children; Mary Ann, Lythe and Mark. Ted passed away in August, 1989 after a lengthy illness and Ann lived another 22 healthy, happy years with her two daughters. Ann remained close to her Catholic faith and enjoyed attending Mass until the last three years of her life, when her daughters brought her Communion, not only in her home, but also in Creston Valley Hospital and Swan Valley Lodge. She was a long-time member of the Catholic Women's League and also had volunteered for various charities and organizations in Creston and established the ďƒžrst choir in Holy Cross Church, during her life here. She also enjoyed travelling, reading, knitting, crocheting, quilting, needlework, gardening. and love of nature, which she joyfully passed on to her daughters. Ann took a great interest in the progress and successes of her children and grandsons. Ann will be sadly missed by daughters Mary Ann and Lythe; son Mark (Melody); grandsons Lance and Brent of Victoria; numerous cousins in the United States and her many friends. Ann's Funeral Mass was celebrated October 26, 2011 in Holy Cross Church, Creston. Interment took place November 1, 2011 in the family plot, Holy Cross Cemetery, Spokane, WA. We would like to thank Dr. John Griffeon for his care of our mother, the staff of Creston Valley Hospital and Swan Valley Lodge while she was a patient/resident there, and kudos to Candace Barnes, who went above and beyond in all the extras she did for our mother. Also, a big thank you to the staff of G.F. Oliver Funeral Chapel, for their kindness to us during the difďƒžcult time of the loss of our mother. PS: I would like to extend an apology to all for the lateness of this obituary notice. Grief has a way of holding one back from doing their duty. God Bless you all. Mary Ann Staples.

RDCK board approves total tax increase of $6,000 BY GREG NESTEROFF Nelson Star
The Regional District of Central Kootenay board unanimously adopted its 2012 budget on March 22 with a negligible property tax increase. Only an additional $6,000 will be raised through taxes for general and rural administration. “We have more services and are spending more, but not increasing taxation,” chair John Kettle said. “We had surpluses and carried forward a lot of them.” Kettle says they discussed using those surpluses to further offset the $6,000, but rejected it based on the staff time required to adjust the 15 to 20 affected services. “Changing all of those to balance to zero would have cost us at least as much,”
Kettle says. “So we just adopted the budget as is. It’s basically a zero budget. We’re not taking any more and we’re doing the same job with the money.” Kettle says they could have given taxpayers a break, but opted to hang on to the extra money in anticipation of other expenses, such as a switch to a new accounting system and the search for a new administrator to replace Jim Gustafson, who will retire later this year. “We have some transitional things that we kept money back for so we don’t have to hit everybody with a huge tax increase if things don’t go our way,” Kettle says. He said cutting taxes now only to raise them again later “would be kind of like giving your kid a candy bar and then saying ‘Give it back.’ ” Kettle attributed the surpluses to conservative budget-
ing and prudent management. The overall financial plan is worth $57.9 million, compared to $50.7 million last year. Of that, $22.1 million will be generated through taxes, up about $470,000 over last year — an increase of 2.2 per cent. Different areas pay different amounts based on their service levels. Taxation accounts for 43 per cent of the regional district’s overall budget. Other revenue streams include user fees (14 per cent), senior levels of government (12 per cent), and prior year surpluses (eight per cent). Environmental services and recreation are among the areas that will see increased spending this year. Vice-chair Hillary Elliott says more dollars will also go toward resource recovery — formerly known as waste man-
agement — as part of a long-term plan. “The plan was to spend money to become more efficient, hopefully save money in the future, and redirect our waste more responsibly,” she says. “We intend to follow through and make sure it’s a better program.” It’s the second straight year the budget has been passed without opposition. But Kettle says that doesn’t mean reaching consensus was painless. “I’ve had wisdom teeth pulled that were easier,” he joked. “We
fight like cats and dogs, but when it came time to stand up as a team, we stood up.”
Budget highlights • Staff and BC Transit have been asked to re-examine transit service delivery and see if a different model might work better. • The board will hire a consultant to conduct a corporate review of the regional district • Provisions for three new waterfront parks and two more community water systems. • A two to three year software conversion project.

8th ANNUAL Internet & Radio AUCTION Nearly 300 items up for bid ! Watch for the Rotary ﬂyer in your mailbox mid-April
Worried about Melamine scares or the quality control of Pet Foods?
Trust Royal Canin, Medi-Cal pet food
Each Royal Canin facility runs many tests on each raw material used in pet food. Near-Infrared spectroscopy is only one of the many ways the ingredients are tested. When a truckload arrives at the factory, its load is checked against a reference sample of that ingredient. The truck is not allowed to unload until this screen is performed. If there is any difference from the reference sample the entire truckload is rejected. Three infractions by the same supplier will result in the end of their contract. Stringent standards are in place to give the best quality products free of contamination by toxins. New technology is the Nitrogen flush which ensures the food will be as palatable and fresh as the day it was made.
“We are driven by our commitment to providing dogs and cats with the best nutrition possible based on scientific evidence.”
-Royal Canin Company
