Abuse could end to public access to Fort Shepherd Trail Briefs Although the Fort Shepherd Conservancy Area opened to the public this month for a third season, there still remains a danger of the popular area being closed. Guarded closely by the Trail Wildlife Association (TWA) and its president, Terry Hanik, the area south of Trail down Casino Road is used by all sorts of recreationalists, but not always towards a noble pursuit. Hanik said after the TWA took over in 2010 as stewards of the land, people have been trying to keep the area in as pristine condition as possible. But it only takes one or two people to wreck it, he said, usually by dumping garbage or driving into regions closed to vehicle traffic. Over the winter, some people created bonfires on Teck’s land — the first eight kilometres before the conservancy — burned pallets and left some refuse, said Hanik. Continued acts of that nature would precipitate closure of the area by the advisory committee that included The Land Conservancy, Teck and TWA representatives. “This is the only area that The Land Conservancy has let people go in and use. No other piece they own allows people to go in and use,� he said. ,

“But the area could end up being shut down if they abuse the land.� And it would be a great loss to the local recreation culture if that were to happen. Hundreds of people each year use the Fort Shepherd area to hike, fish, swim, hunt, mountain bike, walk dogs or go down to view monument at Fort Shepherd and look around for artifacts. Pipe leak showers sewage into Columbia The regional district’s main sewage line came apart above the Columbia River underneath the Old Trail Bridge’s deck in late Monday afternoon, spilling around 5,500 cubic metres of largely liquid sewage into the river over the next few hours. The regional interceptor pipe that services Rossland, Warfield, Rivervale, Oasis and West Trail was comprised of several sections of steel pipe, held together with a clamp, securing it to the piers of the bridge high above the river, said Alan Stanley, director of environmental services with the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary. But the clamp’s failure was a mysterious occurrence, said Stanley, considering there was no normal operation of a pressure main that would result in the separa,

tion of a coupling. “We are investigating that for some alternative reasons as to why it happened,� he said Tuesday. “At this point there are a bunch of ideas floating around, but until we have something more definitive we are a little reluctant to say exactly what it is.� The RDKB had an emergency response plan for such an event and it was activated soon after the line came apart, pulling in regional district, City of Trail, Ministry of Environment and Environment Canada officials by 5:30 p.m. Regional district liquid waste management crews had the sewage spill contained within a few hours after the leak was spotted. Although the sewage pumps could not be turned off, the crews were able to send the liquid sewage through a bypass valve into the river, while solid waste went into a holding tank. School district has to cough up cash for sick days Sick days for staff continue to plague the school district as it now faces a further hit to its current budget. An extra $150,000 might have to be absorbed into School District 20’s (Kootenay Columbia) current budget as substitute expenditures keep climbing.

With only 15 per cent of the budget left ($148,000) and around $400,000 expected to pay substitute staff to cover for illness and other leaves of absence in the next four months, SD20’s board of trustees got a grim look Monday night at their regular monthly meeting at Blueberry School at how the books will be balanced this year. The substitute expenditures mean some planned school district purchases will be put on hold, said SD20 superintendent of schools, Greg Luterbach, noting there was some money in the budget to replace vehicles for the district’s maintenance crew, as well as buy some new computers. “They will be on hold until we see how we are going to balance the budget,â€? Luterbach said. “So there are going to be some unhappy people ‌ because we are going to have to use that money to balance this year’s budget.â€? This is of serious concern, he added, considering how the expenditure is affecting other areas of the district’s operation. The total substitute expenditure for February was over $110,000. For the year the district had budgeted around $1.02 million, or $83,000 per month. KBRH Health Foundation reaches halfway mark

The Trail hospital is moving toward advanced equipment to deliver testing for women in the Kootenay Boundary who have a history of breast cancer or current symptoms. The Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital (KBRH) Health Foundation has just raised half of the $950,000 needed to replace its 11-yearold film mammography machine with a digital mammography with stereotactic capabilities. A mammography exam is used to aid in the early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women, a process that is expedited with digital equipment. This state-of-theart machine will not only support diagnostic imaging but also general surgical practice at the Trail hospital. Stereotactic biopsy capabilities means patients may be able to have a needle biopsy instead of invasive surgery to diagnose a breast lump. “These biopsies are done in the mammography room instead of the OR, which means a faster recovery and reduced pressure on our OR,� explained Thalia Vesterback, Interior Health regional manager of diagnostic imaging. “Some patients will still require surgery but it means more options for surgeons and their patients.�

Kootenay governing crew sold on summit JIM SINCLAIR Advertiser Editor

It was a meeting arranged a couple of months back and Castlegar had been chosen as the location. A group of 13 gathered to try their luck at reaching consensus on a number of green topics. The event was called the West Kootenay Climate Leadership Summit, held on Tuesday, March 27. Rising to the summit was a group of 13 comprised of mayors, councillors and regional district directors from across the West Kootenay. The mandate of the summit was to â&#x20AC;&#x153;establish a climate action peer network, share challenges, inspire others and determine ways to work together on their common goals of reducing energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, and ultimately saving money.â&#x20AC;?

Trail Councillor Gord DeRosa City of Trail photo

â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was definitely worthwhile,â&#x20AC;? recalled Castlegar Mayor Lawrence Chernoff. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We talked about energy and we talked about waste and water.â&#x20AC;? He added that time was spent during the three hour session discussing options for larger communities helping their smaller counterparts. Group purchasing of infrastructure items, increasing economies of scale was also looked at according to the Castlegar mayor. A group-buying plan was touted for the retrofitting of streetlights, for example, switching to more efficient LED models. Those attending re-

lated their experiences in regard to waste and water issues. Silverton councillor Leah Main reported that â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Village of Silverton has developed the highly successful electronic waste recycling on its own initiative because it needed to be done.â&#x20AC;? Trail councillor Gord DeRosa brought up the point of how trimming power use could help in more ways than one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From automatic door openers to escalators,â&#x20AC;? said DeRosa, â&#x20AC;&#x153;weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all out of shape.â&#x20AC;? The host was quite pleased in describing the the summit, and Lawrence Chernoff indicated on March 30 that the momentum would soon be maintained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to meet again at the AKBLG (Association of Kootenay Boundary Local Governments) coming up in April,â&#x20AC;? he concluded.

Salmo tops an Earth Hour category JIM SINCLAIR Advertiser Editor

In any competition it always helps to get a great start, like the early Earth Hour pledge drive carried out by the Village of Salmo. The effort helped a lot as the village earned bragging rights with the top per-capita participation in the province. Village of Salmo administration clerk Jessica Ellis feels being quick off the blocks gave her town the momentum it needed to wind up on top. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re pretty happy,â&#x20AC;? said Ellis on April 2. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Salmo showed great support.â&#x20AC;? The Earth Hour Challenge was held

between 8:30 and 9:30 on March 31. Everyone was encouraged to shut off all non-essential lights and appliances for that time, just to prove they can get by without them, even for short periods at a time.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were the ďŹ rst community to really start getting pledges. We went up really quickly at the beginning.â&#x20AC;? Jessica Ellis, Village of Salmo Salmo gets a $5,000 prize to go with its honour, and the money will go to the local public library. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be doing energy up-

grades to their new wing,â&#x20AC;? said Ellis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were the first community to really start actually getting pledges. We went up really quickly at the beginning. Then the other communities started to catch up, especially Kaslo. Then the library, the Village and many people rallied together and we ended up catching up to Kaslo. When it closed on Saturday, Kaslo actually had more pledges than Salmo did. Once they went through and removed duplicate entries, Salmo did have the most.â&#x20AC;?

As important as those is a love for having fun because there is plenty of that to look forward with the United Way. Most people will likely recognize the United Way from selling the quad package tickets and for their fun dress-up themed Kick-Off dinner and dance - in 2011 it was a popular Wild West theme. Without more board members they are in jeopardy of not being able to do these events due to lack of manpower. If interested please call Nicole Beetstra at 250-304-3600. As mentioned, United Way is lots of fun and the money raised helps fund other local community agencies that do great work in the community.

NELSON STAFF West Kootenay Advertiser

For the fourth time in recent years in the Slocan Valley, a judge has slapped a restraining order on a property where a marijuana grow-op was discovered. RCMP sought and obtained the property restraint order from a BC Supreme Court judge in Vancouver for a property that contained a commercial grow-op. Cst. Shaun Foley

of the Slocan Lake detachment says they found nearly 400 plants as well as a shotgun that had been stolen out of Edmonton. Jean Yves Farrand Murray, 36, has been charged with several offences stemming from a search of his property on February 3, although police didn’t state the address. He faces counts of drug production and possession for the purpose of traffick-

ing, as well as unauthorized possession and unsafe storage of a firearm. Murray appeared in court in Nelson last week and will return May 8. The restraint order contains stipulations which prevent the owner from selling or transferring interest in the property or from doing anything which could depreciate the value of the property until the matter is dealt with in court, Foley said.

It also gives temporary control and management of the property to a branch of the federal government. Depending on the case’s outcome, the trial judge may forfeit the property to the Crown. Two other Slocan Valley properties have been forefeited the same way — one wholly, and one partially. Another two matters are still before the courts.

CUPE BC’s City Watch comes to Grand Forks SUBMITTED

Grand Forks is the latest BC community to join with CUPE in City Watch, a partnership between the local government, CUPE Local 4728, CUPE BC and the local RCMP detachment that will see Grand Forks employees work with the RCMP to help make the community safer and more secure. “This is just a great partnership that brings everyone together to put community safety first,” said Grand Forks Mayor, Brian Taylor. “Having our workforce act as additional eyes and ears on the street will assist our Town’s efforts to improve safety and security for all.” “We welcome this opportunity to help our community,” said Mike Noseworthy, President of CUPE Local 4728. “Our

members don’t just work for the community, they’re a big part of it, so City Watch is a great fit here.”

“This is jus a great partnership that brings everyone together to put community safety first.” Grand Forks Mayor Brian Taylor RCMP Sergeant Jim Harrison said the partnership with Grand Forks and CUPE 4728 will help his fellow officers in their work. “We know from the experience of other detachments that the City Watch program works and helps make communities safer,” said Harrison. “We’re very pleased to participate.” “Since we first

launched the City Watch program nearly 30 BC communities have joined with our Locals to help make communities stronger,” said CUPE BC Regional Vice President, Ian Norton. “I know how committed CUPE members are to their communities every day, both on the job and off.” About City Watch: City Watch is a CUPE BC-sponsored program designed to prevent and reduce crime in communities throughout British Columbia. CUPE locals work together with local government and police to give CUPE workers who are out on the road during the day and their dispatchers special training in watching for and reporting criminal or suspicious activity in the community. This

way they can keep their eyes open during the course of their regular duties and help make our communities safe and secure for everyone.

RDKB executes court order and takes down illegal trailer park Grand Forks Briefs The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) executed a court order to remove a number of illegal trailers from the Granby Road property of Peter Demski on March 28. The RDKB contends that there had been complaints from nearby residents about the

trailers, which were brought onto Demski’s property illegally and went against zoning bylaws. The mobile homes were torn down and the debris was taken to the local landfill. Grand Forks’ Thate wins Music Festival contest Local singer Amanda Thate will open the

Late season bracer with annual ‘Slush-Cup’ ARNE PETRYSHEN West Kootenay Advertiser

Arne Petryshen photo

Despite the cold and snowy weather, some 25 competitors put on their best ski boots, swim shorts and retro attire before taken the plunge for the annual slush cup at Red Mountain in Rossland. Those brave enough to speed down the hill through the falling snow hit big air off the five foot jump before splashing down into the ice cold landing pool. While a few people

managed to waterski to the end of the pool, most ended up getting drenched in front of the large crowd that gathered on every vantage point between the Red Chair and the day lodge. The winner received a brand new pair of skis. On the hill, there were excellent winter conditions with a large amount of snow falling overnight. Other prizes were awarded for best costume and best trick. This is the last weekend of skiing at Red, which officially

closes on April 16 this year. To finish the year off, Red will be having a pass appreciation and end of season deck party and Dummy Downhill. The Dummy Downhill event begins at 2 p.m. Saturday, with sled display at noon and registration starting at 9 a.m. Enter your dummy sled for a chance to win prizes in categories like people’s choice, biggest air and fastest time. Entry is $5, but kid’s under 16 can enter their sleds free. Pass holders will be able to

get food and beverage specials of the day as pass appreciation. For more info, contact Lauren Ellis at 250-362-7384 or receptionist@redresort. com.

Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho so much for the concept of Freedom 55 SUBMITTED

Life Matters Just recently, the Federal government passed their 2012 Budget which has caused quite a stir amongst the popula-

tion at large. The main hot topic of debate has been the changes introduced to our Old Age Security pension plan with the eligibility date being moved from age 65 to 67. Needless to say, I

had a brief chuckle… shook my head and heaved a big sigh… oh, how life has changed… Rewind the tape about 25 years and all I could think about was Freedom 55. Yep,

that was the ultimate dream. Work hard, “save your pennies” and if all turned out as planned I’d be living the retirement dream at age 55. Unfortunately, for most of us – the Freedom 55

dream is far from reality as we’re still faced with putting our children through school, paying off debt and mortgages and realizing we should have been saving $100 bills instead of pennies.

A few years back, the government had to institute changes to our Canada Pension Plan to increase our contribution rate to 9.9 per cent of our pensionable earnings. There was an outcry at the time as no one wanted to take away more of their hard earned dollars to fund the CPP. Nevertheless, these changes were incorporated and we learned to live with it – thankfully because of these changes, indicators tell us that the CPP appears to be fully funded for the next 75 years. When it comes to the Old Age Security pension plan, this particular program is financed by the government’s general revenues and provides a monthly pension to nearly all Canadians age 65 years of age or over. For 2012, the maximum annual OAS pension is $6,481 or about $540 per month. The OAS was put into place when Canadians were not living as long. For example, in 1970 the life expectancy was 69 years of age for men and 76 for women while today it’s 79 for men and 83 for women. The government therefore estimates that the cost of the OAS program will grow from $38 billion in 2012 to $108 bil-

lion by 2030. In addition, in the 1970s, there were seven workers for each person over the age of 65. Today, there are four workers per senior and in only 20 years time (based on estimates of Canada’s declining birth rate) the government projects that there will be only two workers for every 65 year-old. Yes, we can rant and blame the government of the day – however, these changes would have been necessary regardless of which political party was at the helm. You can turn on the news and see the heavy-handed 11th hour austerity measures being brought down in other countries because the governments did not have the foresight to prepare. In our case, these OAS changes will be phased in over an 11-year period followed by a six year phase-in period which will provide individuals with significant advance notification to plan their retirement and make adjustments to their savings plans. So, here’s how it works. If your birth date lands on or before March 31, 1958 – you’re safe. Continued from P. 23

Above submitted photo depicts Silverton soldiers, circa 1915 at the military camp in Vernon. Submitted photo

certificate from the Greenwood-Fremont Mines Ltd. sold last month for $64 US. It was for 2,000 shares, issued to an F.H. Knight of Grand Forks and signed by secretary C. Scott Galloway, one of the major landholders in the Greenwood townsite. The Fremont claim was in Providence camp, and in 1896 an assay gave $46 in gold and 160 ors. of silver to the ton. Work proceeded sporadically during the first decade of the 20th century. By 1907, the mine employed

six men, and power lines had been strung for an electric hoist. But in 1911, the Greenwood Ledge reported a mechanic’s lien was placed on the mine for wages. “This is another venture that A.H. Noyes has been trying to operate with hot air and promises,” the newspaper said. The stock’s seller was in Ferndale, Washington. • A photo of the “Silverton boys” serving in the 54th Kootenay Battalion CEF during World War I sold for $82 US. The 7.5 by 5.5

inch photograph was taken at the soldiers’ camp in Vernon in 1915 and depicted 14 men. Their names are not included, but we know from a sign on the Silverton memorial hall that nine men from the village who enlisted did not return: Harold Jenkin, Samuel Waters, James White, John McInnis, Alfred Moul, Harold Bowers, Alfred Broughton, R. Griffith, and F. Langhorn. The seller was in Vernon, the buyer in Nelson. • A 1902 card addressed to the West Kootenay Butcher Co.

Sewell for 50 lbs. of beef to be sent by train. The Slocan Junction post office was renamed South Slocan in 1915, but no one knows why. Similar cards previously sold for $15 and $26 in 2006 and $10 in 2008. For a photo gallery of the above items, see nelsonstar.com.

West Kootenay girls go to school on basketball fundamentals CRAIG LINDSAY West Kootenay Advertiser

Girls from throughout the West Kootenay were busy Saturday morning working on their basketball skills at Stanley Humphries school gym in Castlegar. Head coach Kim Matson and several assistants have been working with girls from throughout the area on skill development. “We’re going to be running six sessions

to give the girls an opportunity to build on their skills and play ball,” said Matson, who coached the SHSS junior girls basketball team this year with husband Gord. “We have girls from Greenwood, Trail, Nelson, Castlegar, and South Slocan. We have a lot of experienced coaches helping out this year which I’m super thankful for. It gives the girls an opportunity to learn more and develop their game.”

Hopefuls are put throught their paces last Saturday.

The camp is for players of varying skill

levels from beginner players right up to all-

Craig Lindsay photo

star calibre players. “I think it’s a great

program,” said guard Els Hryniw from Robson Community School. “It’s fun.” The next development session, for girls in grade 8 and younger, is April 11 at Mount Sentinel Secondary in South Slocan from 5 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. “It’s about development for wherever they want to be next year,” said Matson. “It’s also development for those interested in trying out for summer games and a zone

team which will be selected from the West Kootenay.” Matson is also the coach of the Kootenay Summer Games girls basketball team which will be competing in the summer games on July 19-22 in Surrey. The try-out dates for the summer games team are: April 21, 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at SHSS in Castlegar, and May 5, 9 to 4:30 p.m. at Mt. Baker Secondary in Cranbrook.

Rick Hansen relay heading to Grand Forks in late-April CASSANDRA CHIN West Kootenay Advertiser

Currently in Enderby and Salmon Arm, B.C., as of April 4, the Rick Hansen Medal Relay will arrive in Grand Forks in late-April. The relay team will be arriving in Grand Forks on evening of Thursday, April 26 with special events planned for Friday, April 27. “We have 10 runners/medal bearers on that day, and on the following day, when they head to Greenwood, there will be four medal bearers,” explained Grand Forks Recreation Coordinator Kim Johnson. Medal-bearers will carry a medal crafted by the Royal Canadian Mint in relay fashion across Canada. Johnson stated the relay team will arrive at Christina Lake’s

Welcome Centre early April 26 and then make its way to Grand Forks. “There aren’t any medal bearers from Christina Lake to Grand Forks, so I believe they will be driving the medal in,” she added. Upon arriving at the Grand Forks Recreation Centre, there will be a place outdoors for road hockey games with community organizations before the ceremonies begin at around 4 p.m. “We’re trying to get the (Grand Forks) Piranhas Swim Team and the minor hockey teams and different groups to have tables to get the community involved,” Johnson stated, though details are still pending. The Rick Hansen Foundation is dedicated to improving spinal cord injury research. The foun-

dation also aims to create accessible and inclusive communities. Rick Hansen is known for his Man

Before

ness about spinal cord research and people with disabilities. The Rick Hansen relay team started travelling from Cape

Spear, N.L. and is making its way towards Vancouver, B.C. in a nine-month relay to raise awareness about spinal cord

research. For more information in this major coming event, please visit rickhansenrelay. com.

Working with bees involves some give and take

Rossland Briefs How can you diversify your garden to accommodate and nourish bees? Entomologist Lynn Westcott will be leading a workshop in Rossland about the insect. Bees are very important in the pollination process and Westcott will discuss subjects such as effects of pesticides on the bee population and which types of flowering plants best support their nutritional needs. The workshop is Thursday April 12 from 7 - 9 p.m. at the Rossland Legion Hall basement and is free. The Selkirk Trio, a Kootenay based ensemble, is on tour throughout the East and West Kootenays, and will be making a stop in Rossland on April 14. The trio features a program highlighting the rich repertoire for clarinet, cello and

piano. With pianist Sue Gould living in Golden, cellist Jeff Faragher in Nelson and clarinetist Nicola Everton hailing from Rossland, finding a middle ground for rehearsals was the biggest challenge. The three professional musicians are used to packing an intense punch with their rehearsals and concert tour which will cover 15 concerts in seven days, including 10 concerts for the Health Arts Society in extended care facilities throughout the region. All three musicians are active chamber and orchestral musicians in B.C. and Alberta. Lucas Myers with “Deck: How I instigated and overcame an existential crisis through home improvement” at the Miners’ Hall Saturday April 7, starting at 7:30

p.m. Tickets are $15 at the door and $12 in advance (Charles

Bailey Theatre in Trail or Out of the Cellar in Rossland)

Horoscope

ffor th the

Week

A p il 6, 2012 April

Tip of the Week: Last week’s federal budget here in Canada was signed and enacted while both Mercury and Mars were retrograde. This indicates that it will be

Michael O’Connor

fraught with problems and will probably never settle well. That it was officially ratified after the New Moon in Aries cycle, which included Uranus in its scope, makes sense in terms of it activating a revolutionary movement. Many people are upset and virtually dumbfounded at the decisions of the leading players of our ‘elected representatives’ at both federal and provincial levels. Royal decrees would be better descriptions of the social policies being pushed through. Referring to people who get elected, or who assume positions of authority by default, as ‘our leaders’ may be part of the problem. Of course, behind the realities of national interests are all the forces of multi-national interests. That the latter do work with and through national policy but are in fact not strictly bound by national interests and concerns is a likely reflection of the global state of affairs.

ARIES (MAR 21 – APR 20)

LIBRA (SEP 22 – OCT 22)

TAURUS (APR 20 – MAY 21)

SCORPIO (OCT 22 – NOV 21)

GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUN 21)

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 21 – DEC 21)

CANCER (JUN 21 – JUL 22)

CAPRICORN (DEC 21 – JAN 19)

All being well you have everything in place in preparation to launch initiatives that have been brewing for some months. With returns for past efforts rolling in these days and investment interests on your mind, there is excitement in the air. A call from on high and/or visions of adventure beckon. Balancing dreams with realities is the basic challenge. A variety of ideas and plans are gestating in your mind. You are in an expansive mood, but this is the time to dream and scheme more than take full action. Preparing the ground may be your best approach. There is also the bigger picture to consider; to at least be aware of and perhaps to direct some constructive thoughts and maybe some prayers.

Deciphering what is your power in the world and where and how to direct it is a current core theme. It is likely that you have been challenged to make some sacrifices over the past while. Meanwhile, tending to affairs close to home is also important. Spring cleaning and renovations are likely as are more serious family matters. Mixing in quality family and friend time will help balance the scales.

Some measurable changes in your career or public life and perhaps at home were activated at the last New Moon. Now these are coming into full view. Some positive returns are likely in the mix so identify them. Be willing to see the bigger picture and work with the flow of change that is unfolding. Moving forward or into new territory is a good sign.

LEO (JUL 22 – AUG 23)

Some adventure is keeping things interesting now. Meeting new people and sparking friendships is likely. Doing your homework may include research, investigations and/or taxes… The time is right to take calculated risks. This is linked to those key connections that are brewing. Look to the future and be willing to learn new skills.

VIRGO (AUG 23 – SEP 22)

Taking some key initiatives for the sake of your health continues. The overall quality of your lifestyle is also implied. Becoming increasingly self reliant in this regard is ideal. Do seek professional help if required, yet do not lean on family or friends. Be willing to invest in new tools, equipment and skills. Get organized, outline plans and activate healthier habits.

Making improvements in your relationships is in focus. That this includes the quality of connection you have with yourself is part of the plot. You are in the mood for social and cultural stimulation and perhaps some adventure too. With some returns coming in on past investments, deciphering what is your next best direction is important.

Activating key changes in your daily rhythm and routine is important now. Knowing how much you can and are willing to give verses managing and reserving enough energy for other priorities is on your mind. Creating a strategy that works for everyone, including you is the main goal. Within reason you can ‘have it all’, but you have to ask and negotiate terms.

A creative cycle has begun for you and it spells change. Yet feeling confident about the prospects may not be so easy. Part of the answer now lies in reaching out to communicate and network. ‘A person is 5 people away from everyone’ is a saying worth considering. Who owes you a favour? If you seem to be short on friends it may be time to make some new ones.

Things are moving and shaking on the home front, and in you, and both are creating waves on relationship fronts. These may be producing opportunities but you may have to get extra imaginative and give to the situation double time to get the results you want. You may be standing on top yet the wind is blowing cold and it is time touch base and warm-up somehow.

AQUARIUS (JAN 19 – FEB 19)

New perceptions are stirring in your mind. These are leading you to review your priorities with a reality check in mind. Yet, what is realistic may not be so straightforward. Sometimes common sense can get in the way of good sense. What that is depends on your deeper needs. There is more to true security than material considerations and a riddle you must solve.

PISCES (FEB 19 – MAR 20)

An ambitious streak has been activated. This could produce a change of fortunes or at least a desire for more. Of course, discipline must usually accompany ambition. Creating more beauty and comfort in your home is featured. Minor antagonisms meanwhile on relationships fronts may be a source of upset. Balancing this mix of energies will require flexibility and patience.

You don’t have to brush and floss your teeth-just the ones you want to keep. - Author Unknown April means spring is here, a time to enjoy the budding of flowers and other new beginnings. For many of us spring brings renewed energy and interest in our overall health. The mouth is often described as being the gateway to the rest of the body. Maintaining good oral health

is an important part of being healthy. We are now learning that poor oral health may be linked to chronic diseases such as diabetes heart disease and respiratory illness. Maintaining a health mouth and body is all about prevention. Here are a few tips to help you spring forward with a healthy smile! Brush your teeth every day, twice a day. Brushing daily helps to remove plaque that causes tooth decay

and gum disease. If you use a power toothbrush, choose one that has a rotation/oscillation action. Fluoride toothpaste will help keep the outer layer of the teeth hard and resistant to the acids that cause tooth decay. Floss your teeth every day, once a day. Flossing daily helps remove plaque from between the teeth. If flossing is difficult, floss holders can make it easier. If you have braces or bridges, interdental brushes are an alternative. Eat and drink well. Foods that are nutritionally healthy are also good for your oral health. Limiting sweet, sticky snack foods and sugary drinks will reduce the number of acid attacks on your teeth. Drink less sugar and more water. Sugary drinks increase the risk of tooth decay. Plain water is the best thirst quencher, especially between meals, and it is also good for your teeth. Visit Your Dental Professional. Regular check-ups and professional cleanings are the best ways to ensure your mouth is healthy.

CBT supports CBAL SUBMITTED

Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) is helping Basin communities continue to address literacy issues by renewing its partnership with the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL). CBT is committing $1.32 million over three years, or $440,000 per year. This is an increase of 10 per cent over the previous partnership agreement of $400,000 per year, and is a response to increased demands for CBAL’s programs. “CBT wants to support communities in setting and addressing their own literacy priorities,” said Neil Muth, CBT President and CEO. “Given CBAL’s demonstrated track record and the increased demand for the services it provides, we’re excited we can both renew our partnership and increase our support.” CBAL works by assisting communities as they tackle their individual literacy needs. Results include programs and resources focused on topics like reading, writing, early language learning, English as a second language and computer literacy. Over 7,000 people accessed CBAL programs in 2010/11.

Freedom 55? Continued from P. 8

The proposed legislative change won’t affect you and you will still be eligible to receive your OAS at age 65. For those of us born in 1962 (yours truly included here) – on or after February 1st of that year – then your OAS eligibility will be at age 67. For anyone else born April 1,1958 to January 31,1962 you will have a phased-in age of eligibility somewhere between 65 and 67 years depending on your month and year of birth. As an example, someone who was born on July 15, 1960 would have to wait until “age 66 years – 2 months” in

order to be eligible for their OAS. Wow – so much for Freedom 55. Can’t help but whistle that Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs tune “hi-ho, hi-ho…it’s off to work I go.” PS: forget saving those “pennies”… they’re getting phased out too. Now is the time to get your financial plan in order and REALLY get serious about saving for retirement. Debbie Pereversoff CFP CPCA is a financial planner with Assante Financial Management and her company The Affolter Financial Group Inc. located in Castlegar.

Prices depend on the market If you are considering selling your house, you are probably wondering if the current market conditions favour buyers or sellers. You should definitely proceed by collecting all the information you can about the real estate market. Conditions have a major influence on prices and understanding them can play a role in your strategy. The supply and demand formula is simple: when there are more homes for sale than potential buyers, prices fall. Inversely, when there are fewer houses on the market than prospective buyers, prices increase. When the number of homes for sale is approximately equivalent to the number of purchasers, then the market tends to be more balanced. PHOTO: JUPITERIMAGES / THINKSTOCK

Market conditions can vary greatly from area to area within the same region. The factors that determine the popularity of any given neighbourhood are the strength of the economy on a national and local level, rural, urban, or suburban location, access to services, and changing consumer tastes. If you find yourself in a buyer’s market, you will likely need to be flexible and reduce your asking price. Another option is to invest in some home improvements before listing your house, which will optimize your position alongside other similarly priced homes on the market.

NOBODY IN THE WORLD SELLS MORE REAL ESTATE THAN RE/MAX® #100 1444 Columbia Ave. RIGHT ACROSS FROM TIM HORTON’S

Spring maintenance for your home Has harsh winter weather damaged your home? Has snow clearing ruined your flowerbeds? Has the wind torn off some of your roof shingles? Spring brings lots of little fix-ups that need your attention, but for most of them you don’t need to be an expert in renovations. The exterior of a home usually needs some preventive maintenance in the spring, once all risk of freezing has passed. A few simple tasks will be sufficient to improve the appearance and the value of your residence. FOUNDATIONS Check to ensure that no new cracks have appeared and that existing ones have not increased in size. Call in an expert to fill the cracks and solve the problem once and for all. WINDOWS If the paint on windows, outside cladding, or the patio has peeled, the wood is probably damp. Any rotten wood should be replaced before repainting. DRIVEWAY Examine your driveway and other paved surfaces, including those of indoor garages. Identify all the potholes and cracks in the asphalt that will have to be repaired. Stepping stones in walkways that have broken, chipped, lifted, or sunk over the winter will also need repairing. GUTTERS Once the blossoms from spring-flowering trees have fallen, clean the gutters even if you did them in the fall. Take advantage of this extra cleaning to make sure the anchors aren’t loose and that your gutters are draining efficiently. Use a garden hose to detect any leaks and ensure that water drains freely through the downspouts and away from the house.

Do you feel that painting is a tedious chore to avoid, best left for those years when you are moving into an empty apartment or house? Yet, freshening up the rooms in your home is the greatest way to do a quick and inexpensive revamp of your décor. You might feel more prepared to take on the task if you know a few tricks and tips that will keep you singing while you work. The most important thing to remember before starting a paint job is to be well organized. Cover the floor with plastic sheets, wear old clothes, and have all the necessary tools on hand. Quality brushes for precision work and rollers for large surfaces are essential right from the start. PREPARING THE SURFACE A thorough preparation of the surface to be painted is absolutely necessary. If it’s unpainted drywall, the surface must be dusted, and walls covered in latex paint must be washed. If the walls were previously painted with oil-based paints, they will have to be sanded and any dust removed. A primer should be applied to wallpaper, glass, fabric, drywall, or woodwork, which will facilitate the application of your coloured paint and provide better coverage. If necessary, use joint compound to fill any holes and cracks or to level an uneven wall. Use painter’s tape to cover any fixtures, mouldings, or other surfaces that you don’t want splattered or edged with paint.

PAINTING When it’s time to start the actual painting, begin with the corners of the walls and ceilings. In order to get an even look, use both vertical and horizontal brush strokes. Once all the corners have been covered, use a roller to spread the paint from bottom to top, taking care not to remove paint already applied to the wall. Continue in this way, overlapping the part already painted. When painting doors, start with the mouldings before progressing to the door panels. EDGES If you are doing a whole room, start with the ceiling. This way, drips will not fall and spoil new paint on the walls. When painting the edge of a ceiling, you can also paint the top of the wall in order to completely cover the junction between the two surfaces. This will help you when the time comes to paint the top of the wall. A straight, clean edge requires a lot of skill and a steady hand that can only be learned with practice. It helps to use a good quality brush with bristles cut at an angle. If you aren’t putting fresh paint on the ceiling, use painter’s tape along all ceiling edges before starting on the walls. By following these few suggestions you can be sure of one thing: the job will turn out to be a lot easier and a lot more fun than you’d expected!
