Creston town council directed staff to proceed with the required public notice to approve a development variance permit for the owner of a property at 324 16th Ave. N. Martin Campbell plans to build two eight-unit buildings on his property, and has requested that the required rear yard setback be reduced from 7.6 metres (25 feet) to three metres (10 feet) in order to fit the required 20 parking spaces at the front. The yard is an unusual panhandle shape and “fitting the required number of parking spaces into that space is tricky,” municipal services co-ordinator Ross Beddoes told council at Tuesday’s regular meeting. The property’s rear is against Alex Nilsson Field, and concerns were brought up about the buildings’ proximity to green space and the sports field. “Maybe what he should consider doing is buffering it with some soft landscaping, like some trees,” said Coun. Scott Veitch. “If he wants to build that close, it’s his building that’s going to get booted with the balls.” See VARIANCE, page 5

Run by a dedicated group of volunteers, this organization aims to provide a variety of activities geared for our seniors. It has become a networking location for seniors who simply want to get out and work with others with the same needs and desires. TAPS constantly is raising money to keep the programs going. They have two buses to move the seniors, whose average age is over 80.

TAPS keeps Creston Valley seniors active BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

Among Creston’s most beloved services is the Therapeutic Activation Program for Seniors (TAPS). It has needed a lot of love to survive this long, too, because it is among the few such programs in the province that was able to continue after severe provincial cutbacks in the 1990s. Originally started 20 years ago by Bridget Currie, a home support worker, TAPS began with 11 clients who received 10 hours of service a month. Funding came through the health care system. “The program was designed to serve isolated seniors who had depression and mental health issues,” Currie recalls. Currie ran the program for about five years, then moved on to other challenges. TAPS was then co-ordinated by Jill Fehr, who would run the program for more than a dozen years. Funding cuts buy the Interior Health Authority (IHA) nearly caused the end of the program. “Jill Fehr realized that Interior Health was going to stop the funding and she convinced (former Creston citizen of the year) Alex Nilsson that the program shouldn’t die,” said Serena Naeve, executive director of the nonprofit Creston and District Community Resource Centre (CRC) Society, which operates a dozen and a half programs, mostly under contract to various provincial government ministries. “Alex came to me about the need for TAPS,” she said. “And when I listened to the heart of what Jill described — the value

Each issue in April will have a story on a different non-profit organization, starting with the Handy Capable Housing Society on April 5 and the Creston and District Society for Community Living’s Therapeutic Riding Program last week. The April 26 issue will feature the Three Voices of Healing Society’s wellness centre.

of independence for people who averaged 86 years of age — I thought, ‘This is what I want when I’m older and can no longer drive.’ TAPS fits my sense of community.” By helping isolated and lonely seniors get out and participate in social setting, TAPS provides a lifeline to the larger community. “These are people who have chosen to have continued independence, with some support from the community,” Naeve said. “They want to keep contributing. That’s what I want out of my life, too. Many of our participants would be extremely isolated without TAPS.” With the support of her board of directors, Naeve and CRC took over responsibility for the operation of TAPS and has, through fundraising and grants, been able to keep the program going. It’s a startling fact, given that most similar programs around the province simply disappeared when IHA funding dried up. Ironically, nearly everyone involved with TAPS over the years, from clients to volunteers to support workers and professionals, has been convinced that the program actually saves the health care system money. They believe that TAPS participants are healthier, mentally and physically, and less prone to be spending time in hospital or using other health care services. “But it’s very hard to quantify,” Naeve admitted. Today, TAPS serves about 65 seniors and functions with five part-time staff and about 50 volunteers, including the Krafty Kronys, a group that once operated the tuck shop in the hospital. Now, they devote their efforts into raising funds to keep the program going by selling a variety of handcrafted items. And, in a move that makes it seem like she has come full circle, TAPS founder Currie has, for the past 18 months, once again become the program’s co-ordinator. “I had a 13-year break,” she laughed. “Then Jill called me and said she was ready to retire. I realized that I was ready to come back.” Currie credits the community and its remarkable volunteers for sustaining the program. “Creston people have such generosity,” she said. “Everybody volunteers for a different reason and we try to match them with an area they are interested in, to encourage them to keep coming back.” If there is a perception that TAPS is a quiet gathering of elderly folks who get together to eat and participate in activities

designed to keep them amused, that perception needs to be corrected. Participants are eager to be productive and they, as much as anyone, have worked to keep the program going with fundraising efforts. TAPS pies have become famous throughout the Creston Valley and huge baking bees keep the supply rolling out. But there have been numerous other efforts too, all of which harken back to Naeve’s comment. “Quality of life from beginning to end,” she said. “That’s what we are all looking for. We want to feel as emotionally and physically intact as we can be. We want to be useful to others.” Regular activities include ripping up material into rag-sized pieces for the Creston Valley Gleaners Society, which responds by helping support the program. Last year, the group was approached by some Telus ambassadors (retired employees who support charity work). “We took on a project of making afghans, cookies and gift bags,” Currie said. “For three months it was just crazy around here. We ended up making 75 afghans — it was just amazing!” That project raised $3,000 for TAPS and was so successful that gift bags and afghans were donated to other needy people in the community. “We’re just waiting for the next Telus project,” she said. “Right now they are knitting for

Next month, TAPS will benefit from a concert by the visiting Kelowna International Choir. “This came about from a connection of a cousin and a hair-

All net proceeds go to TAPS. The death knell for TAPS has nearly been rung several times over the years, but each time some small miracle has occurred to keep this vital program in operation. Funding operations that include staffing, buses and a facility hasn’t been easy, but Naeve is optimistic for its future. It’s simply too important to the community for it not to continue. “Seniors, like babies and children, need to be hugged and touched,” she said. “That’s exactly what TAP provides for them — hugs and touches.”

Farmers’ market starting FOR THE new season with workshops RECORD BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

The Creston Valley Farmers’ Market returns in just over two weeks, and two workshops have been scheduled to help out vendors. The first is a display workshop that runs from on 9 a.m.-noon on April 21, taught by artist Win Dinn for $10. “That’s going to teach people the ins and outs of getting a display set up,” said market manager Jen Comer. “She’s going to be able to give tips and tricks. A lot of it is about repurposing thrift store stuff.” A “market safe” course will be offered for $100 on April 28 to teach Food Safe guidelines. Although Food Safe is not yet required for farmers’ market vendors, Comer said it likely will be in the future, and this course will give vendors a great start.

The first farmers’ market runs on May 5 in the lot behind the Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce (the usual Millennium Park location will be taken up by the visiting West Coast Amusements). Shoppers can expect to find bedding plants and perennials, honey, art and donuts, as well as early produce, including lettuce. “Joy Tomlinson’s been growing tomatoes in her greenhouse and getting them ready since December,” said Comer. Cassandra Viers, she added, will be there with open pollination seeds and tomato seeds. With an average of 25 vendors expected at the spring markets, the timing couldn’t be better. “In the spring, people get into the mindset of eating local food,” said Comer. The farmers’ market is run by the Creston Valley Food Action Coalition,

which now offers members an incentive packages, developed by food action assistant Tamara Movold. Local food makers and businesses, she said, were eager to get on board. “Everyone said they wanted to do it,” said Movold. “It was just a matter of coming up with incentives.” Available for a $25 membership, the package contains a dozen incentives, including a free dessert with the purchase of a meal at Real Food Café, and 50 per cent off a member’s first bottle of milk and five per cent off farm gate sales of cheese and meat at Kootenay Alpine Cheese. Previously, membership was gained by a voluntary donation, but the charge is designed to help the coalition meet one of its goals. “Part of the food action coalition’s strategy is to cover operating costs without relying on grants,” said Comer.

Variance applies only to project From page 1 The property is currently zoned for apartment and residential development, but if it were rezoned for multi-family dwelling, the required setback would be only the 10 feet Campbell has requested. “I’d be more comfortable with that than setting a precedent,” said Coun.

Judy Gadicke. Coun. Wes Graham, acting as mayor in Ron Toyota’s absence, said that he was comfortable with the idea of simply varying the setback on that property. “If you change one, you don’t have to change the next one,” he said. “It’s only precedent if you feel you need to do that

on the next one.” The variance, Beddoes noted, would only apply to this developer for this project, so it wouldn’t carry over if the property sells prior to building or the project falls through. “If nothing happens for two years, it goes away,” he said.

Unfinished business leads to Paris

When I was 18, I travelled to Europe with two high school friends. It was 1972 and we had each worked part-time jobs for more than a year to save for the trip, which we decided was more important than to head straight into university after our graduation. To make a long story shorter, we left in September, then travelled throughout the United Kingdom before boarding a hovercraft from Dover to Calais, France. Because by then it was October, we decided to head northward before the weather turned too cool. Oslo was as far north as we got and then we made our way southward. Eventually, I tired of the endless negotiations involved when three people travel together. It was in Florence that I said goodbye, hopped on a train and made my way to London, then flew home. Later, among my regrets for having left at that point and time was that I didn’t get to Rome, Paris or anywhere in Spain. It took me more than 30 years to get to Rome, a city I have since come to rate among my favourite of all places. Last November, Angela and I had only just began talking about another European trip. That discussion got more serious when we walked out of the Tivoli Theatre, having watched a Friends of the Cinema presentation, Midnight in Paris, the charming Woody Allen film. “I want to go to Paris,� I said. Then added, jokingly, “Paris in the 1920s.� Well, the latter wasn’t possible, but the former was, and we began to narrow down our preferred destinations. Paris isn’t all that far from Spain and, over the last couple of decades I’ve become an admirer of the great architect Antoni Gaudi, so Barcelona became part of our focus. It didn’t hurt that the city also has a lot of history in common with two of my favourite artists, Salvador Dali and Pablo Picasso.

We added a week at the start of the trip so that we could visit friends in Bristol and then spend a few days in London, in part because we both like the city and have spent time there —

time and context for all. When we travel, we rarely take cabs, preferring to walk and use public transit. On this trip our only cab rides were to meet our apartment owners in Paris and Barcelona. I fell in love with the Paris Metro, the underground train system that sets a high standard for cleanliness and efficiency. Five minutes was a long wait for a train on the several routes we took. But walking is really what city travel is all about.

Area needs public reps

To the Editor: (Re: “Dike issue a conflict over area’s policy”, April 5 Advance, page 7) It is important to point out that Richard Dalon is making a very complex matter out of a simple common sense application of wetland management, with management supported by a mandate and act. Dalon also emphasizes careful consideration was taken in restrictions to access and vegetation management techniques on dikes, which are nothing more than earthen landfills to separate ponds of water within the confines of the CVWMA, necessary to reclaim a natural wetland, the natural wetland being destroyed by the Columbia River development. Who manages this 17,000-acre wetland? Locally, Richard Dalon and biologist Marc-André Beaucher, and far from here, biologist Tony Widesky (Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations in Cranbrook) and biologist Andrea Breault (Environment Canada in Delta). Disturbing is that with no public consultation the following events have taken place: •With no advance notice, an 80-year-old ferry operators’ dwelling (of heritage potential with built-in maintenance) and other capital investments with taxes paid were trashed and hauled to the landfill. The residents were evicted as “trespassers”. •A large barn structure commonly known as the bat barn was trashed and hauled to the landfill. The bats were left homeless and a bat house was later constructed to accommodate any bats left. •Mature vegetation (trees with 40 years of maturity) was trashed on approximately four kilometers of earthen-type structures for a convenience (publicly stated) to inspect the structures for leaks, removing years of established wildlife habitat and protection from predation, and removing the opportunity of nature enthusiasts locally and from abroad the convenience to experience discoveries. •The Duck Lake Diking District appears to have been intimidated into supporting the CVWMA in blocking vehicular traffic from the west end of the Duck Lake cross dike south to the old ferry landing. •Vehicular access was blocked on the CVWMA south cross dike at Channel Road. •It appears to have supported the compromising actions of Farmin Road, a public road, by gating and removing a culvert, resulting in a large waterfilled ditch where even foot traffic cannot reach the CVWMA Duck Lake south pond. •It refuses to allow vehicular access for hunters to remove game from the CVWMA. •It refuses to allow feeding of elk on CVWMA property to help relieve the risk of vehicular traffic conflict on west Highway 3. •The Channel Road access to Duck Lake is accessible by four-wheel drive vehicles only. •It has created an unsafe situation for extraction of any person suffering from injury or illness by blocking accesses to ambulatory care. Richard Dalon remarks that Gordon and Barbara Ogilvie initiated a petition. This is true. It takes courage, time and financial cost as well as a reason to undertake such a venture.

OPINION LINE

When the CVWMA was established, the management authority was given the power to appoint one representative from the public at large to the authority. One of the first was a man by the name of Steve Kenyon from Trail. The most recent one was Steve Bullock from Creston. Steve retired from the position five years ago. The present management has chosen not to appoint a public representative. This seemingly has reflections of a covert operation, resulting in no public consultation and major conflict with the public — and a petition with over 800 signatures. Things have changed. I personally feel two public representatives should be appointed, one from each gender, male and female. The choosing of these representatives should be by local organizations with direct wildlife interests and no biologists. My reasoning is that females, as well as males, play a large part in the access of this grandiose wetland facility. Cyril Colonel Wynndel

of this document. 4) Your decision is a top-down decision forced upon the people who live here. We are like the people of the Mayan Riviera, who once lived in a place coveted by developers and now work as waiters and do the laundry. Why should the one per cent live in the world’s most beautiful places? You have stolen something precious from the people and given it to the wealthy from afar. 5) Will taxpayers pay for costly road and avalanche maintenance to this high elevation private resort once it is built? Please reconsider your decision. Tanna Patterson Wildsight (Creston Valley)

The book for today’s preschool story time (Thursdays at 10:30 a.m.) was Kitten’s First Full Moon by Kevin Henkes, and the app used for the iPad was Play Tales Kid’s Interactive Books. The story also involved the moon but not a small cat

@ Your Library Ann Day

and the app was free (they get you later on when you want more). The audience, both moms and children, were pleased with both formats and as engaged with the book as with the iPad screen. The iPad also had several interactive games that reinforced some of the concepts of the story as well as words and numbers. Another dimension has been added to storytelling and we are enjoying it immensely, as are the participants. One of the mothers called later to get the correct name for the app. Still on computers, we had a call from the Girl Guides leader asking if her group could have their next meeting in the library and access the computers. One of the badges now available is a computer badge and our space and computer set up is ideal for them to work as a group. The request worked out better than expected as not only will they get use of the computers but they will also have the skill and expertise of our computer technician for a short workshop and that will include the audiovisual room. That is also quite timely as we have had a request from a Grade 7 student for a tutorial on the Garage Band program on the computer in the audiovisual room. We are putting a program together for the grade 7 and 8 age group to introduce them to programs their computers might not have. We have just heard the news there will be a garden show this year featuring the work of local gardeners at seven different locations. It was one of the couples participating in the show who gave me the information, and coincidentally I was talking to them about a new DVD in our collection

called Great Gardens of England. It features 58 quite amazing gardens in the U.K. shown on six DVDs. Unfortunately, it takes some time for some DVDs from the U.K. to be available to Canadian viewers and this set of DVDs is quite dated; however it’s only noticeable when the gardeners themselves are being interviewed. There are some very large glasses and some very interesting hairdos. The gardens themselves are quite timeless and every one of them memorable. Carrying on with the garden theme, thanks to information from friends, I found the TV Ontario website and a huge variety of interesting documentaries available for viewing. I immediately honed in on the BBC production of Monty Don’s Italian Gardens and was captive for the 54 minutes of my tour of Baroque gardens in Northern Italy. If you go to the list of programs and then to the program page, you will see the four hourlong programs available for viewing. They have not adapted the DVD series for Canadian viewing yet nor Monty Don’s other series, Around the World in 80 Gardens. We have had our eye on that one for some time now. I have ordered both of the books for the library and we will maintain hope that DVDs will eventually be available in Canada. I suggest you hook your computer to your television screen to watch the videos from the website. You will never look at your own garden the same way again. We just had a visitor in the library from Chilliwack, who, with his BC OneCard, borrowed several books in a series he was interested in reading. He will be dropping them off at his Chilliwack branch and they will get them back to us. With your Creston library card and a piece of picture ID, you can be added to any library system in B.C. and borrow any items their OneCard policy allows. Any of those items can be returned to any library in B.C., including ours, and they will be returned to the home library. The traffic of library items between our library and Cranbrook, as well as numerous other libraries, has steadily increased since the OneCard was introduced. The increased strength of library connections not only in the Kootenays but the entire province has become noticeable and very helpful as we are all faced with an interesting future. Ann Day is the chief librarian at the Creston and District Public Library.

DriveABLE leaves rural seniors at disadvantage

For the past two years, I have been receiving many phone calls and letters about the DriveABLE program. If you are an elderly driver, chances are you’ve heard about this driver screening test or done it already. For those who haven’t, let me provide some background.

In Your Corner Michelle Mungall

Developed by Dr. Allen Dobbs, a University of Alberta professor and a director of the Northern Alberta Regional Geriatric Program’s neurocognitive research unit, DriveABLE is not only a test but also a spin-off company from the university. The test is meant to determine a person’s cognitive abilities and fitness to drive using a computer program. Drivers touch the screen in response to cues and a score is obtained

that passes or fails the driver. If a driver fails, they lose their licence. DriveABLE was first introduced in B.C. in 2005, and then expanded from three to 17 centers in 2010. That same year, guidelines changed for determining driver fitness, now requiring all drivers over 80 to be routinely screened for driving ability. When a doctor sends a patient for a driver fitness test, that patient has had only one test available to him or her, and that’s DriveABLE because the Liberals did a single-sourced contract with the company. Approximately 1,500 people are sent to the DriveABLE test each year and 15 per cent pass the initial assessment. Another 40 per cent fail and lose their licence immediately, while the remaining 45 per cent have to take a driving test. If a person wants to take the DriveABLE test again, they have to pay $170 to the Office of the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles plus a second round of travel costs. That’s right — with only 17 test centers, seniors had to pay for their travel costs to take this test and that left seniors in rural areas like the Creston Valley at a particular disadvantage.

Petroleum industry now a threat to survival

Here in the Creston Valley, and in most parts of the world for that matter, people have very little experience of the

for our long-term good and for the fate of our world. The problem, you will have guessed, is global warming. The polar bears in our Arctic are already suffering because of it. The rest of us will share their fate unless we do something — indeed, a lot — about it pretty soon. Granted, it’s not a problem that we can solve as individuals or little valleys or even countries as large in area as Canada. It’s going to take decisive, far-reaching action by at least a great majority of the world’s nations — especially those that are most responsible for causing the problem in the first place.

problem I’m about to discuss. I’m not sure whether that is a good thing. Certainly, we’re fortunate. On the other hand, I fear that our good luck makes us more complacent than we should be

Canada is one of those nations. Yet our petroleum industry and our federal government seemingly find it impossible to understand that what was once a vital contributor to our economic wellbeing, and that of much of the world, has now become a threat to our survival as human beings. I don’t think I’m being unjustifiably alarmist. Pollution arising from the consumption of petroleum products is not the only cause of global warming and ours is not the only culpable oil producing and consuming country. But it is a major factor and we must take responsibility for what we do and, to the best of our ability, we should provide

Practices best when shared

We had our best practices meeting here at the Creston and District Community Complex a couple weeks ago and it was probably the best attended one I had seen in some time. These twice-a-year meetings involve our leisure services colleagues from Castlegar, Nelson, Trail and, new this year, Slocan Valley.

From the Centre Neil Ostafichuk

With the exception of Trail, we all fall under the cloak of Regional District of Central Kootenay, but you would find that most leisure service providers in the province (and most likely Canada) follow similar philosophies or mission statements as well as all the pitfalls and challenges that accompany the business. Each attending facility tries to have representatives from each department within their area such as maintenance, aquatics, fitness, and dryland programming as well as customer service heads and management. In order to cram as much into a day, a quick overview on what each facility is doing is followed by a session that is applicable and beneficial to all departments. The afternoon has breakout sessions for each department and a more intense focus on current issues and resolutions. In seeing this type of meeting develop and mature over the past years, you really see

DriveABLE

From page 8 As people began to contact my office as well as my NDP rural colleagues, we started to look into the issue. At our weekly rural caucus meetings, we discussed strategies to advocate for changes. Safe roads are paramount, and testing to keep our roads safe needs to be accessible, transparent and fair. We asked questions in the legislature, held town hall meetings and put forward a motion that calls on the government to make testing centers more accessible throughout the province. If you want to see my contribution to the debate on that motion from Feb. 27, please visit www. michellemungall.ca or call my office and we would be happy to send you a transcript. Because of our advocacy, the Liberals have

the benefit of colleagues meeting, sharing ideas and overcoming obstacles in a face-toface interaction uninterrupted by phones ringing, emails beeping and people tapping on your door that need just a minute of your time. I am a firm believer in not reinventing the wheel — somewhere out there, your ideas exist in one form or another, awaiting your particular experience and input to develop and enhance them further, and by meeting as a group, you sure see how the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Drifting from philosophy to reality, make sure you take in the Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce’s Home and Garden Show this weekend either on Friday from 2-9 p.m. or Saturday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. The show returns to the hockey arena this year after the construction in 2011 relocated it to the curling arena but the days of displacement are coming to an end as we wrap up the last remaining areas this summer construction-wise. I would have to check to see how long the show has been going on in one form or another, but in my tenure this past 17 years, there haven’t been too many seasons that have been missed. Events like these are one of my favourites because you can circulate around and visit whomever you want, avoid whomever you don’t want and you don’t have to go through a grocery checkout at the end. If you haven’t seen the new board system and lobby in the arena yet, now is your chance; just remember that we have a bit more flooring and paint to go in. Hats off to the folks at the chamber of commerce and anyone else involved in providing this event for another year. See you there!

leadership and set an example for others. Yes, the oil industry has been good for Canada. The industry has been especially good to Albertans. It has made a lot of them and a lot of its owners elsewhere very rich. It has the capacity to go on doing so for several decades. But times have changed. What was once unchallengeably good (or so we thought) has now become a very mixed blessing, at best, and unless we do something drastic about it within the next few decades, it will become a curse. Unfortunately, we can’t carry on as we have been for a few years and then begin to take drastic action. We need to begin now to find alternatives to petroleum production and consumption. Some of our provincial governments, B.C.’s among them with its surtax on automobile and heating fuel consumption, have recognized this and taken preliminary steps to meet the challenge. But our federal government either doesn’t acknowledge that the challenge exists or refuses to tackle it meaningfully. Instead, it is promoting the building of oil pipelines to serve Asian

and U.S. markets. Apart from the ecological harm done during the construction of the Enbridge line across B.C., the direct risks arising from these projects may or may not be overblown but it is inevitable that their operation will add to global warming, worldwide. And certainly they send Canadians and the rest of the world the wrong message. The Harper government is taking only token steps to deal with this and other environmental threats, and even those have been offset by budgetary cuts and the gagging of scientific employees who might warn us about the growing environmental hazards. Harper will only do what he needs to do if we, the people, use every legal means available, especially the ballot when we get the chance, to make him understand that “jobs, jobs, jobs” are fine but that there won’t be any jobs for our grandchildren and great-grandchildren unless he starts now to launch a meaningful assault on global warming. It’s up to us — and we can’t afford to wait. Peter Hepher is a retired journalist who lives in Creston.

In March, the B.C. government announced that it will no longer use DriveABLE as the sole determinant for driver fitness. Now it will look at the DriveABLE results, a road test and medical information. There will also be one more testing centre added this May — in Cranbrook. These changes don’t address all the issues I have heard from local seniors and their families, so I will continue to work with constituents and my colleagues to ensure that tests are fair and more accessible. After all, we’re not just dots on a map. We are communities of real people, and when someone is told to make a major life change, we have to be confident that the change came from an accessible, fair and transparent process.

Ministry grant a boost Town wants to join to Creston trails project RDCK to greet harmony run BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

A $400,000 grant from the Ministry of Community, Sport, and Cultural Development’s community recreation program will be a boost to the town’s trails network. The grant is 80 per cent of funding that will see improvements made to Creston’s trails, with the town, and the Creston and Creston Valley Rotary clubs adding $80,000 to the trails project. “We’re planning on paving all the trails we’ve ever done, including Steve’s Ride,” said Coun. Judy Gadicke. Steve’s Ride, named for the late Steve Hernandez, a Town of Creston employee, runs from Cedar Street near Millennium Park to 11th Avenue South. It will be expanded to add two branches to the trail, one parallel to the railway tracks and another by the seniors housing, and

will gain picnic tables. The development is part of a three-year process that will include an off-leash dog park, as well as the installation of outdoor exercise equipment along Steve’s Ride and in Centennial Park near the Creston Rotary Splash Park. “Parents could be using it while their kids are in the splash park,” Gadicke said. The project was already in the planning stages when the grant was applied for — that planning and the Rotary buy-in helped to secure it. “It all came together,” Gadicke said. “It’s very exciting.” Creston and the West Kootenay received over $1 million from the ministry. The other projects include Kaslo’s sustainable complex project ($188,666 to renew the Kaslo and District Arena and Curling Complex), Nelson’s Kootenay Lake Outdoor Skate Park Society ($400,000 to build an outdoor skate facility) and the Salmo Valley Community Centre health and fitness expansion project ($80,000, expansion of facilities for fitness and recreation programming). Ninety-eight projects throughout the province will share $30 million, and in some cases, the province is providing up to 80 per cent of eligible costs for projects that enhance recreation infrastructure. The total value of approved projects is more than $70 million, which will create an estimated 458 direct jobs and 251 indirect jobs.

The World Harmony Run, which passed through Creston in 2008, is returning in May, and the Town of Creston will be asking the Regional District of Central Kootenay to work together to host a welcoming reception. “I would like to see that happen again here,” said Coun. Joanna Wilson at the April 10 regular meeting. “It was very good in 2008.” She offered to help organize the event. The difference this year is that the Lower Kootenay Band dancers and the Creston Commu-

nity Band will not be available this time around. “The principal of ARES (Adam Robertson Elementary School) has contacted us saying they would like students to participate,” said town executive assistant Bev Caldwell. Council voted in favour of working with the RDCK and having the reception at the Creston and District Community Complex after the suggestion of Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce executive director Jim Jacobsen. “The directors have been quite vocal that it’s a community hub,” he said.

Council ups budget for Kaminoho visitors BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor Creston town council passed a motion at the April 10 regular meeting to increase the budget for the Creston-Kaminoho Friendship Society from $4,000 to $6,000 to accommodate expenses relating to a delegation visiting from Seki City and Kaminho, Japan, in June. The increase doesn’t actually affect the town’s budget, but comes from reallocated funds, and doesn’t all need to be spent during that trip. The first thing the Japanese visitors plan to do is visit the Forest Lawn Cemetery, where former mayor Lela Irvine and former councillor Lawrence Lavender, both supporters of the sister city program, are buried. Council Briefs The Town of Creston is offering a one-year extension to the Regional District of Central Kootenay for fire services provided to Areas B and C, but only if the RDCK renegotiates and signs an agreement by the end of May. The fire protection agreement — which costs the RDCK $130,000 a year — currently expires at the end of 2012, and the proposed extension would be for one year beyond that. The conclusion of the agreement will allow the RDCK to hold a referendum to create its own fire service in those areas. •Town council will discuss applications for the Columbia Basin Trust’s Community Initiatives Grants during its committee of the whole meeting on April 17. The program was undersubscribed this year, with about $61,000 out of a possible $65,000 being applied for; the remainder will be carried over and added to the funds available in 2013. •Engineering and public works director Iain Bell told council that the murals on the side of

Pharmasave will be repaired to prevent water damage. The lower portion of the paintings has a small gap that is allowing water inside; filling the gap with silicone is expected to solve the problem. •March “was not a banner month for the building department,” municipal services co-ordinator Ross Beddoes told council. Three new building permits were issued last month, for one minor residential addition and two smallscale commercial projects. In March 2011, four building permits were issued. So far this year, the town has issued five permits, and permits for three single-family residences are pending. •The town will spend $250 to sponsor a hole in the Creston Valley Thunder Cats annual golf tournament. •Council adopted a revised fire services bylaw and the five-year (2012-2016) financial plan bylaw, and gave the new tax rates bylaw its first through third readings. The tax bylaw stems from the fiveyear plan, which will see taxation due to RCMP costs start with a 3.3 per cent increase this year, and rise 1.5 per cent the following four years. •Council approved a request from the Creston Valley Blossom Festival Association to use the parking lot south of Millennium Park on May 19. The association will hold youth events on that site to tie in with children’s events in the College of the Rockies parking lot and entertainment in Millennium Park. •The Creston Valley Farmers’ Market was approved to relocate for May 5 only to the lot south of the Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce, while the West Coast Amusements carnival makes its annual visit. “That’s also the site they’re looking at for a one-year trial basis for their midweek market,” said Beddoes.

Canyon-Lister students dare to stay safe

Canyon-Lister Elementary School teacher Judy Gadicke with her Grade 5/6 class and DARE instructor Const. Wally Bursey.

This year, millions of school children around the world will benefit from DARE (Drug Abuse Resistance Education), the highly acclaimed program that gives kids the skills they need to avoid involvement in drugs, gangs and violence. DARE was founded in 1983 in Los Angeles and has proven so successful that it is now being implemented in 75 per cent of our nation’s school districts and in more than 43 countries around the world. DARE is a police officer-led series of classroom lessons that teaches children from kindergarten through Grade 12 how to resist peer pressure and live productive drug and violence-free lives. At Canyon-Lister Elementary School, our DARE police officer was Constable Wally Bursey. We appreciated his commitment to teaching us how to be safe. Here are a few of the speeches given by our 2012 Grade 5s during our DARE graduation:

In DARE, I have learned that drugs can be very bad for you, so the best thing is

not to have anything to do with drugs, smoking and other things. I feel that DARE will help me later in life because we’re being taught about alcohol, tobacco and other drugs. So when we’re older, we know about it and that it’s not good for you. If you are in a bad situation like someone telling you to drink, smoke or do other bad things like that, then leave, make a lie or tell an adult so you can stay safe. A lot of people do drugs because they don’t know what’s in the drugs and when they find out they become addicted and it’s hard for them to quit. It’s better if you have close friends that don’t drink, smoke or do drugs so then you don’t have to struggle just to say no because they’re not close. But it’s better if you don’t smoke at all. With all the advice I will use the information and make wise decisions and stay safe because I know that smoking, drinking, tobacco other drugs are bad. I pledge that I will not drink, smoke, chew tobacco or do any other

drugs, especially if I’m told to do it by a friend. — MAKAYLA WALTON

In DARE, I learned that if you drink or smoke or do other drugs, you could die, get sick or lose brain cells. DARE has taught me how to define, assess, respond and evaluate. I know a person that does drugs, smokes and drinks. He does not eat or drink water hardly ever. It makes me sad to know that people do that stuff. I am glad to know that there is a DARE program to set people on the right track including me. I pledge I will never smoke or do drugs and will not drink underage or become an alcoholic. — KYLA BLACKMORE

sure and how to choose your friends. We’ve learned many health effects of tobacco, marijuana and alcohol and their legality. It is important to know so that we stay away from these things that can destroy our brain, body, future and bring violence into our lives. My parents already told me about the dangers of smoking, alcohol and drugs, but I really enjoy the examples on how to deal with peer pressure. We learned how to define and assess some peer pressure problems and opportunities related to drinking alcohol and smoking, which will make me more confident handling them in real life situations. I commit that I will make wise decisions about drugs, alcohol and smoking. — EMMA PENNER

The DARE program gave us awareness of the effects and consequences of drugs, alcohol and smoking in our lives. It also taught us the skills to define, assess and respond wisely and solve problems. We learned how to deal with peer pres-

I have learned that drugs, tobacco and alcohol are very bad for your body. The officer has helped me by telling me about the dangers of these things. DARE has helped me a lot. I really liked doing this program. See DARE, page 12

Visually impaired songwriter The Pearl brings wide range to Creston celebrates SASQUATCH ARTS AND MUSIC SOCIETY

The inspirational songbird and multi-instrumentalist, Penny Buhr Johnson, is coming soon for some spring-like sunshine in beautiful B.C. Whether or not the sunshine is “provided” in the sky, Johnson’s performance is guaranteed to bring sunshine to your heart and musical medicine for the soul. Having performed in the Cranbrook area last year at various venues, this multiple award winner has won the hearts of many new friends and now the stage is set for the opportunity to have this talented person at the Snoring Sasquatch on April 28. She has four CDs out, with her newer CD release, Growing Deeper. With a very entertaining repertoire of bluegrass, smooth jazz, blues, gospel, country and inspirational adult contemporary, this entertainer is ceaseless in her songwriting and musical development. “All my life, I’ve felt driven to learn and develop as a musician, adding guitar and fiddle playing to my daily devotion and concert rep-

ertoire,” she said. “I wish to acknowledge God for giving us the gift of music. It is wonderful to explore, but not complete in itself, until it is shared.” “Her songs are touched by spirit, and the joy she takes in them, makes it all irresistible,” said Kimball J. Meyer (a.k.a. Kim Berly, drummer and singer with the Stampeders). After a very fulfilling 19 years of teaching young and advanced students in the Music for Young Children program, Johnson received teacher of the year award in 2004 from the South Okanagan and District Arts Council. But, a visual handicap was taking its toll. It was becoming increasingly difficult to teach. Now legally blind, due to retinitis pigmentosa, a gradual vision loss genetic disorder, Johnson and her family seriously considered a change of pace. In June 2007, they moved from the South Okanagan to the prairies of Southeast Saskatchewan. The timing was perfect to bring out the dream of performing her own music, which had taken a quiet back seat in her life.

FRESH APARAGUS Weather permitting season starts May 1 - June 15

LAY DOWN ON THE JOB!

WANTED! PICKERS/SORTERS

Earth Day PEARL THEATER

Last year, Johnson exercised her invitation to compete in the Canadian National Institute for the Blind (CNIB) and finished in the top 10 in Canada. “Well, Penny, you friggin blew me away Tuesday night,” said Rob Lamonica, a regular performer at a top restaurant in Mazatlan. “Anytime my piano is set up, consider yourself welcome to play all night. … What a joy. … Alfredo, the owner of Pedro y Lola’s, really enjoyed you, too. You could easily be playing here regularly during the season. We’d love to have you again, but let me know so that I can invite some folks, and turn people on to the beauty that is you!” For more information, visit Johnson’s website, www.pennybuhrjohnson.com. Advance tickets are $10 at Kingfisher Used Books and Black Bear Books, and $12 at the door, which opens at 7 p.m.; the show starts at 8.

Look for us all dressed up in our summer best at the

Home & Garden Show Booth #9 for ideas and samples of all your summer food and picnic needs!

BONNERS FERRY, Idaho — The Pearl Theater offers food for mind, body, and spirit with two separate events in celebration of Earth Day this weekend. On April 20 at 7 p.m., a film festival features The Story of Stuff by Anne Leonard and I Am, featuring comedy director Tom Shadyac. The Story of Stuff is a fast-paced 20-minute fact-filled look at how all the stuff in our lives affects communities here and abroad. It teaches, provoking laughter and promoting change. The second film, I Am, is an entertaining and provocative look at the interconnectivity of all life. It offers intriguing solutions to the challenges and inspiration from scientists and luminaries including archbishop Desmond Tutu, historian Howard Zinn and philosopher Noam Chomsky. It is hosted with great humor by Tom Shadyac, who directed Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and Bruce Almighty. Tickets are $5 at the door. On April 21 at 7 p.m., the Pearl hosts the Earth Day dance, which will feature multicultural music and dances. These dances are a simple, fun, active celebration of the variety of cultures on our planet. No partners are needed. Everyone dances with everyone. Families are welcome. Anyone who can walk can enjoy this kind of dancing. Lots of laughter and an immediate sense of community rise naturally from these dances of the common folk. Several traditional dances will be taught and then there will be great music for just shaking it loose. Traditional dances will be taught and called by Victoria Thompson, who taught multicultural dancing for three years at the University of Idaho in Moscow. Tickets are $5 at the door. The Pearl Theater is located at 7160 Ash Street in Bonners Ferry, Idaho. For more information, call 208-304-0866 or visit www.the-pearl-theater.com.

Wendell Ferguson back for New book shows Blossom Fest stage show everyday role BY HUGH JOHNSTON

Spring is finally here and that means that the Creston Valley Blossom Festival is just around the corner. A hard-working, dedicated group of volunteers has been busy since late last fall making preparations for the biggest annual get together celebration of the year which kicks off May 18 and runs right through the Victoria Day weekend until May 21.

Wendell Ferguson at the Creston Valley Blossom Festival in 2009.

The Blossom Fest, as it has become known, begins with a stage show featuring local talent and a headliner that only an event like the festival can bring in. It is also the night when the citizen of the year is chosen by the Creston Rotary clubs. Headlining the stage show is multi-talented singer, songwriter, guitarist and comedian Wendell Ferguson. If the name sounds familiar, he headlined the same show in 2009. The Ontario-based country and western entertainer who frequently appears on CMT has a resume much like a who’s-who of show business. A busy session musician in the music studios in Toronto, he has worked and recorded with Gordon Lightfoot, Jane Siberry, James Keelaghan, the Arrogant Worms, Duane Steele and Katherine Wheatley. Ferguson has spent a lot of time on the road touring with the likes of Sylvia Tyson, Caitlin Hanford, Cindy Church, Tommy Hunter, Lisa Brokop, Patty Loveless, Shania Twain, George Fox and the Dixie Chicks to name a few. Awards for Ferguson include two Juno nominations; The $#!T Hits the Fans was nominated for album of the year in 2006. He did win the Canadian Country Music Association guitar player of the year six times before they told him it was time to let somebody else win. He is one of the best, if not the best, guitar pickers in Canada. Tickets for the stage show will go on sale this weekend at the Home and Garden Show. Local outlets Black Bear Books and the Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce office will also have tickets.

YASODHARA ASHRAM While there may not seem to be much connection between a ripening apricot and the practice of yoga, a new book by the spiritual director of Yasodhara Ashram makes clear the link between the two. Living the Practice: Collected Writings on the Transformative Potential of Yoga draws on Swami Radhananda’s 30 years as a yoga teacher and her rich experiences as a mother and educator. She presents yoga not as the esoteric art of a few flexible people, but as an everyday spiritual practice that can play a role in anyone’s life — at a business meeting, while driving in traffic, cooking or gardening. “An ordinary life infused with practice becomes a meaningful life,” said Radhananda. Director of the ashram since 1993, Radhananda has overseen its recent efforts to receive carbon-neutral certification by 2013 — in time for its 50th anniversary. Living the Practice will available both in paper and digital format and is printed on 100 per cent postconsumer-waste recycled paper.

Join the community in launching the new title on April 29 at 2 p.m. at Yasodhara Ashram, at the end of Walker’s Landing Road near the Kootenay Bay ferry terminal. Radhananda will read from the book

and there will be group discussions, followed by tea. All are welcome. For more information, visit radhananda.org or call 1-800-661-8711. To order the book, visit the Timeless Books website, www.timeless.org.

In response to ‘Gleaners should be grateful’ (April12, 2012)

The Employment Program of British Columbia is funded by the Government of Canada and the Province of British Columbia.

The food bank is not designed to provide a family’s monthly provisions. It’s considered an emergency source between paycheques; a ‘help’ package. About “doling out a cup of flour...” obviously, you haven’t been hungry, or appreciative to a ‘help’ package. Those in need are truly grateful to have a cup of flour to be able to make a biscuit, a bannock or a dumpling to go with a soup or stew. Gleaners is one of the very few food banks in our province that actually provide a list of basic foods available, and the recipient chooses the items that are needed/required for their family. The price of groceries has increased,so I don’t know the value of Gleaners’ packages at this time...but only a few weeks ago I calculated it to be about $93, twice a month. That is considerable, and does not include the fresh fruit available from our orchardists, or fresh produce from our farms. And it is all due to the generosity of the people of Creston and surrounding areas...both in their donations and in their purchases at Gleaners. It’s true that none of this would be possible if only the poor shopped at Gleaners; people from all walks of life are imperative to the growth of Gleaners. In the original letter to the editor, I implied that people in business should not be PROFITTING from the donations that were destined to those in need. Now, the part of Ms Smandych’s letter that truly irked me was the fact that the volunteers get first crack at the ‘goodies’ and walk out with bags of merchandise. I wonder if she would consider volunteering a little of her time to see exactly what does go on in this incredible establishment. Volunteers take home boxes of stuff.... yes, they sure do! Toys to be cleaned and organized; buttons, beads, thread and craft items to be bagged; lace and fabric to be measured, rolled and readied; mending to be done; towelling and cotton to be made into bags of rags; dolls and clothes taken to the ladies at T.A.P.S. to wash and dress. Yes, they take home many bags, and spend many hours preparing items for the customers. I suppose they could stop all this extra handling of merchandise, but then the reputation that Gleaners has earned would be completely out the window. Customers would receive soiled clothing and bedding; is this what you would have us do? Gleaners would not be so stocked every week if it weren’t for these volunteers, and I personally resent the fact that you presume them to be helping themselves to the bounty. Shame on you! And as an afterthought, I don’t think the $60,000 to $70,000 dollars that Gleaners provides for community organizations, educational bursaries, children’s lunches, ministerial aid, T.A.P.S. contributions, (to name only a few) would feel that the food bank should give out bags of flour. Gleaners’ mandate is the food bank. It does NOT go short!

Creston students join in tan-free campaign CANADIAN CANCER SOCIETY

The Canadian Cancer Society (B.C. and Yukon) launched its second annual tan-free grad challenge, and secondary school students across B.C. are set to fight back against cancer by encouraging their classmates to forego the “prom tan”, and instead, rock it in the skin they’re in. “We want our classmates to embrace their skin tones and know that they don’t need to be tanned to be beautiful,” says Caileigh Rendek, a student at Prince Charles Secondary School in Creston. “We want to get the facts about tanning out there so that our classmates can make their own informed decisions.” Melanoma skin cancer — the most

severe form of skin cancer — is the third most common form of cancer for people between the ages of 15 and 29. In an effort to prevent skin cancer, Grade 12 students are leading the challenge by educating their peers on the dangers of ultraviolet radiation from both the sun and indoor tanning equipment and collecting pledges from fellow students to be tan-free for their graduation. According to Cranbrook Mount Baker Secondary School student Amanda Musso, “We know that there is no safe way to get a tan and that any use of indoor tanning equipment before the age of 35 can increase a person’s risk of melanoma. Our goal is to help change peoples’ attitudes towards tans and save our peers from making harmful choices.”

“Last year, over 3,000 students pledged to be tan-free for their graduation,” said Patti Moore, team leader of health promotion at the Canadian Cancer Society. “The society hopes to increase this number significantly by engaging over 30 schools in 2012.” In addition to the challenge, the society advocated to the B.C. government to follow the lead of Nova Scotia and Southern Vancouver Island by banning indoor tanning for youth under 18 — which the province did last month — a recommendation that was shared by leading health organizations such the World Health Organization, the BC Medical Association, the Canadian Paediatric Society, the Canadian Dermatology Association, the Medical Health Officers of BC and the BC

Centre for Disease Control. According to Moore, a recent poll commissioned by the society shows that threequarters of British Columbians supported restricting youth access to indoor tanning equipment. For any schools that are interested in holding a tan-free challenge at their school, contact Amanda Harris at the Canadian Cancer Society Southern Interior region office at 1-800-403-8222. Established in 1938, the Canadian Cancer Society is a national charity that fights cancer by doing everything we can to prevent cancer, fund research and support people living with cancer.

RDCK supports concerns over smart meters BY GREG NESTEROFF Nelson Star

The Regional District of Central Kootenay has adopted a second resolution backing the rights of power consumers to decline smart meters.

While the board passed a motion in January asking FortisBC to give customers the chance to opt out of the controversial devices, East Shore director Garry Jackman says this one, voted on Thursday, broadens that request to include BC Hydro. It states the board supports the right of

any property owner to not have a smart meter “placed on their property without their express written permission, especially as it relates to health issues and concerns.” “I’m not sure the board has jurisdiction,” administrator Jim Gustafson said. “I urge the board to seek a legal opinion so we don’t

compromise ourselves.” Rural Samo director Hans Cunningham agreed the board ultimately has no control over the matter, but the motion was a “statement of intent and belief.” See SMART, page 31

Footlighters casting melodrama to run in July FOOTLIGHTERS THEATRE SOCIETY

Auditions will be held at the Snoring Sasquatch on April 24 for the melodrama Someone Save My Baby, Ruth, which will kick off Footlighters Theatre Society’s 18th season in July. Directed by Brian Lawrence, with Jacqui Vezina assisting, this play follows in the foot-

steps of a long string of summer melodramas presented by the group. “Melodramas have always been popular with local audiences,” said Lawrence. “The stock characters — hero, heroine, villain, villainess — are so much fun to watch.” Someone Save My Baby, Ruth is set in 1890s Boston, where the young widow, Penny Candy, and her baby,

Ruth, are taken in by her Aunt Praline, owner of the Sweet Shoppe. The villainous Sidney Swindle has enlisted the assistance of Ada Sourball to help him get his hands on the property and sell it to the city to become part of America’s first subway system. Of course, police officer Ernest Noble is on hand to keep the peace — and win Penny’s heart. Other characters include shop assistants Taffy and Toffee,

who have caught the eye of customers Hubert and Tom, Mrs. Murphy and her young daughter, Minnie, and candy cooks Farron Heit and Cindy Grade. “The characters’ names are a dead giveaway that this show is pure, simple fun,” said Lawrence. “It’s a great opportunity for someone who wants to try out acting for the first time.” Auditions for the roles will

LKB changing with the times From page 1 The open house will be held at the complex on Simon Road, where the band’s offices and gymnasium are housed in a facility that was constructed in 1991, replacing 1950s band office on Highway 21. “Any band members here would say that was the place you could come and you’d hear laughter in the building,” said Louie. “That is something we’re working toward today.” Since Louie was elected chief over a year ago, he has encouraged the band council and staff to work more closely together; last year, they attended a retreat where the facilitator discussed meditation, conflict resolution and goal setting. One of those goals is to establish partnerships with others organizations in the Creston Valley, and the LKB already works closely with the Regional District of Central Kootenay and its east waste subcommittee, Department of Fisheries and Oceans and the Kootenay Lake Partnership, and is helping to develop a flood-

plain management plan. “We want to build bridges, not walls,” Louie said. “We’re going to continue walking down that path.” The band’s financial policies are currently in the process of being certified by the First Nations Financial Management Board, and the band is also in the process of writing a constitution to govern its 210 members. “Basically, a big family is what our band is,” said Louie. He noted that there are only a few elders left, but “the ones we do have we really cherish, and incorporate their knowledge into our views.” At the same time as the band is working to solidify its government, it is also trying to develop a more vibrant economy. “Yaqan Nukiy had an economy within its own community, within its own people,” said development services director Curtis Wullum. “Now we’re in a position to try to work to rebuild the government using traditional and contemporary values, and try to find a way to fit in with the other governments in the area.” “We want to build an economy in the valley, so the kids don’t to leave,” said Several widths available. 30 Day Comfort Guarantee. have Louie. To that end, the band has had four trainees working with contractors who have recently renovated and repaired a number of LKB homes — among other projects, 12 homes have new roofs, six have new floors, 10 have new front windows and five have new decks. It couldn’t have been done without the co-operation of the band’s council and staff. “I’m really proud of the council and staff for the commitment they’ve made to do things differently,” said Louie. But Louie said one of the biggest signs of change came during last year’s Creston Valley Blossom Festival, when Creston Mayor Ron Toyota, of Asian descent, and Louie, of First Nations descent, rode in the same vehicle in the parade. “It was a huge symbol of progress, not just for the band, but for A family business built on a family history of over 80 years of service and quality. the town, as well,” he Providing the people of Nelson and area with some of the finest footwear available. said.
