What’s New with What’s Old?

Value of stock certificate may have changed, but remains GREG NESTEROFF West Kootenay Advertiser

Part of a weekly look at items of local interest selling on eBay. Another lovely stock certificate from the Lardeau sold last week for $90 US. The stock from the Huron Gold Mining Co. for 1,000 shares was issued to John Klatters on May 8, 1900 and was signed by secretary Samuel P. Halls and president James T. Garrow, a lawyer who represented Huron West in the Ontario legislature from 1890 to 1902. He was also reeve of Goderich, a small town off Lake Huron, from 187480, and later became a judge. His home still stands in Goderich and is on Canada’s historic places register. Halls was a teacher and principal. According to Henderson’s British Columbia Gazetteer and

Directory of Mining Companies for 190001, the company was incorporated a couple of months before the stock was issued with a capital of $1.5 million. Its head office was in Goderich, while a branch office was in Rossland. Other members of the executive were vice-president George Acheson — a builder whose home in Goderich also on the historic places register, and managing director W.H. Jackson. The company had four claims collectively known as the Fish Creek group, about which not much is known. The stock’s seller was in Orilia, Ontario. • A nice envelope from the Edgewood Cash Grocery postmarked 1944 sold for $34 Cdn last week. The return address indicated the store was operated by “McLeod and Sonâ€? and offered “groceries, meats, provi-

ing the first of his last two shows wanted to make a spectacle out of it by rounding up some of his talented friends and performing throughout the show. The performances began with Licorice Corn, old swing and pop favourites performed by Nicola Everton on clarinet and Gifford on guitar, ukulele, vocals and corn. Next up was Craig Korth, Julie Kerr and the Occasional Offspring, with Korth moving back and forth between banjo and guitar, Kerr, his wife, accompanying on country and bluegrass vocals and their two daughters, Ella and Amy, on banjo and fiddle.

Five nominated for Queen’s medal NELSON STAFF West Kootenay Advertiser

Two former Regional District of Central Kootenay chairs and two former directors are among the nominees for the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal. New Denver’s Gary Wright, who chaired the board from 200410, and Ymir’s Hans Cunningham, who did the same from 1993-2004, were both endorsed for their “long and exemplary service� to the RDCK, province of BC, and their communities. Cunningham is still a director, while Wright recently retired and is writing a political memoir. Also nominated are Corky Evans, John Voykin, and Geoff Yule. Evans served as the RDCK’s Slocan Valley director in the early 1980s before running for provincial politics.

He was Nelson-Creston MLA from 19912001 and 2005-09. Voykin, a Pass Creek resident, recently retired after 31 years representing rural Castlegar, making him the longestserving director in the regional district’s history. During that time he also served as vicechair and was the founding chair of the regional hospital district. Voykin actually received his medal at a banquet in his honour Saturday in Brilliant. Yule, a Castlegar accountant, is a Rotarian, soccer coach, and has travelled to Honduras and Bolivia with the Stanley Humphries Secondary Interact Club. He’s also been an active member of the Castlegar Aquanauts. The nominations came at the request of MP Alex Atamanenko, who put out the LET’S KEEP OUR WORLD GREEN!

call for worthy candidates in his riding. The medal, created to mark the 60th

anniversary of the queen’s ascension to the throne, will be presented to 60,000

Canadians this year to honour “significant contributions and achievements.�

Earth Day has influence in Grand Forks CASSANDRA CHIN West Kootenay Advertiser

Last month residents in Grand Forks celebrated Earth Hour, while this month looks at celebrating the environment for a day on April 22, Earth Day. Though there are no formal events taking place, the City of Grand Forks has been environmentally conscious and is making changes to stay sustainable. Hal Wright, man-

ager of city operations, explained that there are several initiatives taking place. “The City has undertaken a partnership with Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) on the pilot project for the kitchen organics diversion from the landfill,” he said. “The kitchen organics is a very popular program in one of our subdivisions (Valmar) it was piloted in.” Wright noted that the program has been

quite popular and they are hoping to expand it city-wide. “We’re coming up to the end of the pilot project phase and there are decisions being made with the co-ordination with the RDKB,” he said. On April 21, Wright pointed out the city will also partner with the RDKB for Trash to Treasure day. “This allows the public to put articles out on the curb for someone else to pick up for free,” he added.

The City announced last month that greenhouse gas emissions had dropped from 420 tons to 330 tons, based on figures from 2010. “We haven’t really planned anything in particular, but I think the city is very environmentally conscious,” concluded Wright. “We’re working towards carbon neutrality and there have been some good strides made to reduce the use of certain utilities.”

One billion containers are recycled every year

E

ncorp Pacific (Canada) is one of North America’s leading product stewardship corporations. With over 175 depots and mobile collectors across BC, the Return-It™ system is a British Columbia success story. Thanks to BC residents, 80% of the beverage containers sold in the province are recovered and recycled into something new. That’s over one billion containers kept out of our landfills. Encorp Pacific runs the Return-It system. As one of BC’s largest product stewardship corporations, Encorp’s mandate is to develop and manage a consumer friendly and cost-effective system to recover end-of-life consumer products and packaging for recycling. Encorp monitors and estimates greenhouse gas emissions associated with its recycling activities. This helps reduce their carbon footprint and maximize their net benefit to the planet.

In 2010, more than one billion containers were recycled. That’s approximately 365 million aluminum cans, 355 million plastic bottles, 215 million glass bottles, 82 million drink boxes and cartons, and 10 million other containers of varying types. “One billion containers weigh around 97,000 metric tonnes. That’s about the size of an aircraft carrier,” adds Encorp’s President and CEO, Neil Hastie. “Imagine if our landfills had to accommodate that in addition to everything else that’s thrown out.”

You are invited to share your Earth-Day inspired resolution, project, or event at Kootenayearthday.ca.

It all started with soft drinks

Vote for the best project in each category! Voting will be from noon to 5pm on April 28 2012 at the Royal on Baker. Winners will receive gift certificates to regional farmers markets.

Transparency is a priority The details of Encorp’s financial system are available to the public, including audited financial statements. Revenues include the sale of collected materials to recyclers, unredeemed container deposits and, if required, a Container Recycling Fee (CRF). Expenses include deposit refunds, handling fees to depots, transportation and processing of collected containers, consumer awareness and administration. No government funding

half of the Dairy Council of BC and electronics for the Electronics Stewardship Association of BC (ESABC). “In less than three years, 50 million kilograms of electronics have been diverted from land fills and recycled responsibly in BC. It’s one of the highest rates of e-waste diversion in North America,” says Tyler Garnes, Encorp’s Logistics Manager.

First established in 1994, Encorp created a network of provincewide recycling depots to ensure soft drink containers were recycled. The system expanded in 1998 when the provincial government expanded the recycling regulations to include water, juice and alcohol containers. Today, consumers pay a deposit on all ready-to-drink beverage containers sold in BC, except for milk. Encorp’s Return- It Depot system collects containers from consumers and returns them for recycling on behalf of more than 1,000 beverage brand owners. “When Encorp first started, we were recycling about 300 million containers. Over the past 16 years, that number has just kept growing and growing,” says Hastie.

Encorp is 100% industry operated and receives no government funding. They combine private sector efficiencies with a high degree of public sector transparency to manage collection and recycling programs. You can view Encorp’s annual report at return-it. ca/annualreport Taking responsibility creates a world-class recycling system BC’s product stewardship model is one of North America’s best. The model shifts responsibility for managing end-of-life products and packaging from local governments and taxpayers to producers and consumers. The Recycling Regulation, under the authority of the Environmental Management Act, sets out the requirements for product stewardship in BC. Returning your products through the collection systems established by any of BC’s stewards guarantees they will be recycled safely and responsibly.

Milk and electronics too As product stewardship has expanded over the years, so has Encorp. They also manage the recycling of milk containers on be-

GIVING CONTAINERS NEW LIFE You probably already know that each and every container collected by the Return-It system is recycled and put to good use again. What you might not know is how the materials are recycled and what they become afterwards. Recycled products can be found in a variety of goods. Here are a few examples of how your old beverage containers are converted into new and valuable products.

We don’t ship electronics to developing countries for recycling

T

he electronics stewardship program now includes even more products. Consumers and businesses in British Columbia have an environmentally sound recycling option. You can drop off any acceptable products at designated Collection Sites throughout the province without charge (see “Acceptable Products” list for details). The Electronics Stewardship Association of British Columbia (ESABC), a notfor- profit extended producer responsibility program set up by the major producers and retailers of electronics in British Columbia, delivers a recycling program to recover regulated electronics products from consumers and recycle them in an environmentally and socially responsible manner. Encorp Pacific (Canada) has been contracted by ESABC to manage the electronics stewardship program. You probably know them best through their Return-It system. Since the start of ESABC’s program in 2007, more than 49 million kilograms of unwanted electronics have been recycled. That’s over 49 million kilograms that didn’t end up in our landfills and were not exported illegally to become someone else’s problem. How Electronics Are Recycled: Electronics collected in BC are sent to five approved primary recyclers in North America. The items are broken down using various manual and mechanical processes. Products such as batteries and mercury lamps, which require special processing to recover materials, are removed. The remaining products are separated into their

individual components for recovery. Through a variety of refining and smelting processes, the materials reclaimed from unwanted electronics are used as raw materials in the manufacturing of new products. It’s the Responsible Thing to Do: Those useless electro ics in your basement contain valuable resources. Steel, leaded glass, copper, aluminum, plastic and precious metals can be extracted and recycled into new products. Province Wide Network: The 112 permanent Return-It Electronics ™ Collection Sites cover over 97.4% of the province. Drop-off events are organized and held in convenient locations in the communities where depots have not yet been established. How to Find a Collection Site: There are more than 112 convenient locations in BC. To find a Collection Site or drop off event near you, visit return-it.ca/electronics/ locations.

WHAT IS THE ELECTRONICS PRODUCTS RECYCLING ASSOCIATION (EPRA) PROGRAM AND WHAT DOES IT DO?

WHERE CAN I FIND A RETURN-IT COLLECTION SITE AND WHAT KIND OF ELECTRONICS CAN I RECYCLE?

EPRA is a national not-for-profit extended producer responsibility association program that was previously run by ESABC. They have contracted Encorp Pacific to deliver the stewardship program under the Return-It™ Electronics brand in BC. Together, regulated electronics are managed and recycled in a socially and environmentally responsible manner. The program also prevents regulated electronics from ending up in landfills or being illegally shipped to developing countries.

You can find more than 125 Return-It Collection Sites at return-it.ca/electronics/locations. And for a full list of accepted electronics, visit return-it.ca/electronics/products. Get ready. New products are being added to the Return-It Electronics program on July 1st, 2012.

Ticks: small but potent forest residents well worth avoiding CASTLEGAR STAFF West Kootenay Advertiser

They’re tiny and certainly nothing

new, but the lowly tick has the ability to destroy lives. As well as being an unpleasant pest, a

bite from one species of the bug can bring on what’s known as Lyme Disease. Much controversy

over the correct diagnosis and treatment of the disorder continues. The symptoms can be varied and se-

rious. Lyme Disease is definitely not to be taken lightly. Being aware of the threat is always the

first and best step in learning how to deal with it. Rather than giving up on spending time in the outdoors,

FOR RECYCLING YOUR MILK CARTONS

Recycling your milk containers is easy. Simply give them a quick rinse and bring them with your bottles and cans on your next Return-It Depot trip. There’s no refund because you didn’t pay a deposit when you bought the milk. Last year Return-It collected over 630,000 kg of milk containers for recycling and kept them out of landfills. Help us recycle even more.

-VYTVYLPUMVYTH[PVUHUK[VÄUKHWHY[PJPWH[PUN9L[\YU0[+LWV[ULHYLZ[`V\!YL[\YUP[JHTPSRVYJHSS 

here is some helpful information that can help you steer clear of the bugs. Tick Tips courtesy of HealthLink BC Lyme disease takes its name from where it was first identified: Lyme, Connecticut. It is the most common tick-borne disease in North America. It can cause serious, long term disability if left untreated. Early antibiotic treatment is essential, so identification of the disease in its early stages is very important. “Lyme diseasecarrying ticks are less common in the Interior of B.C. than on the coast; however, our residents do travel around the province, so it’s important they are aware of the signs of Lyme disease,” said Dr. Karin Goodison, Public Health Physician with Interior Health. “Approximately 70-80 per cent of people newly infected with Lyme disease will develop small red bumps at the site of the tick bite within several days. The redness then spreads out into a circular rash eventually resembling a target or “bull’s-eye”. Individuals who experience this rash should see their doctor as soon as possible.” Fortunately, Dr. Goodison adds that most tick bites do not result in illness. If you find a tick on your skin, you will need to remove it as soon as possible. Check your whole body and clothing. Do not stop when you find one tick. There may be more. Make sure the lighting is good, so you do not miss seeing the tick(s). If you can not reach the tick or see it clearly, get someone else to remove the tick for you or get your health care professional to remove it.

Trail Briefs If a tree is thinned in the forest, does anyone pay? — so wonders the regional district. With the province requiring regional and local governments across to now pay 25 per cent of the cost of wildfire interface mitigation, the price tag for forest fire safety may be too high for most areas to bear, says the chair of the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary board of

directors. Larry Gray said there is a further $5 million worth of work that needs to be done this year to diminish the chance of a forest fire spreading into settled areas within the three Kootenay regional districts. But now having to cough up over $1 million between the regional districts of Central Kootenay, Kootenay Boundary and East Kootenay after the province

changed the rules of the game is not feasible, he said, even if it means nearly $4 million in fuel mitigation grants from the province. “We qualify for the grants, we have been approved for the grants, but we can’t afford the grants,” Gray said. “We can’t afford the grants because we don’t have enough money; and to raise the taxes to cover that is a huge, huge amount.” Last month directors from the three Kootenay districts met with Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations Minister Steve Thomson on what could become a huge problem if the districts are unable to continue with forest fire mitigation. With wildfire po-

tential threatening every corner of the Kootenays, they asked the minister for solutions to the funding dilemma for a region that will not be part of fuel management this year, Gray said. Skate park misses grant mark Trail was denied grant funding that would have helped push the city’s longawaited urban allwheel park into motion, it was announced Tuesday night. The Community Recreation Program could have covered up to 80 per cent of the anticipated $450,000 project that is earmarked for at a site across from the Piazza Colombo in the Gulch.

Funding says a lot Krista Watts, Environmental Support Manage Columbia Power (right), presents a $1,000 cheque to Crystal Klym, Program Manager for the Central Kootenay Invasive Plant Committee, in support of CKIPC’s annual Speaker Series and AGM which is occurred April 18 at the Fireside Inn in Castlegar starting at 10 am.

Community ICBC recognizes Castlegar volunteers for making roads safer SUBMITTED

In recognition of National Volunteer Week (April 15 to 21), ICBC is thanking the 10 volunteers in Castlegar for their continued support in making the community safer for everyone. Throughout the Southern Interior, over 480 volunteers spent more than 18,000 hours delivering road safety pro-

grams in 2011. “It’s amazing to see so many British Columbians volunteer their time and come together to better their own communities,” said Kevin Falcon, Minister of Finance. “National Volunteer Week is a great opportunity for all of us to express our appreciation for their tremendous commitment to road safety

Volunteers, Keith Campbell (left) and Harvey Budarick outside the Community Complex on April 17. Jim Sinclair photo

and making British Columbia a safer

place to live.” “These volunteers

care passionately about the safety of their neighbourhoods,” said Christine Silver, local ICBC road safety coordinator. “They work tirelessly to help make Castlegar roads safer for everyone. Their dedication is remarkable and truly appreciated. On behalf of all our customers and everyone at ICBC, thank you. You are truly making a differ-

ence.” In 2011, Speed Watch program volunteers in Castlegar contributed over 70 hours to help reduce speed-related crashes in their community. With the support of volunteers, speedrelated crashes have steadily decreased in B.C. over the last five years. Volunteers use radar and speed-reader boards supplied by ICBC to

show drivers how fast they’re actually traveling. Research shows that it works – over 70 per cent of drivers traveling 10km/h over the speed limit slow down when they see a speed-reader board. To learn more about how you can get involved and help keep your community safe, contact your local road safety coordinator, Christine Silver, at 250-979-4622.

Earth-related Effort

USED VEHICLES

Protecting the environment and recycling e-waste FOR SALE West Kootenay Advertiser

Every day is Earth Day at Teck Trail Operations. The smelting giant is now six months into a program to recycle end-of-life electronic waste in the Silver City, a $210-million investment that could see more than 39,000 tonnes of “e-waste” kept out of landfills each year. Trail Operations began recycling televisions, computers and other electronic items on a trial basis in 2006, and was designated as a reprocessing site when the B.C. program started up in 2007. After completing a $6-million feasibility study in 2010, the project received public approval at information sessions. The muchanticipated project, the largest at the Trail Operations in more than a decade, started this year with completion expected in 2014. Currently KC Recycling creates two waste streams for processing by Teck: crushed glass from traditional computer and television screens which contain 8-10 per cent lead; and the remaining components which are shredded with the steel, aluminum, copper and circuit boards are removed for processing elsewhere using a number of mechanical and manual sorting methods. Teck then processes the glass as it feeds into the Kivcet smelter and the e-waste bits and pieces from the shred go into the No. 2 slag fuming furnace. Slagfuming furnaces remove additional gold, silver and copper, as well as lead, zinc and nickel, while vaporizing wood and plastics to help fire the furnace. The addition of the new furnaces is expected to triple the company’s current capacity - approximately 13,000 tonnes of e-waste was recycled last year.

Teck minimizes environmental impact with a minor increase in some metal levels offset by no net increase in SO2 (sulfur dioxide). A minor increase in discharge levels into the Columbia River will be well within Teck’s existing permitted levels. More than six million Canadians join one billion people in over 170 countries in staging events and projects to address local environmental issues. Nearly every school-aged child in Canada takes part in an Earth Day activity. The No. 4 Furnace Project at Trail Operations includes the construction of a new slag fuming furnace and settling furnace to be located in a building at the southeast corner of the property, overlooking downtown and the Columbia River. Reducing SO2 emissions further Teck is also investing $125 million in the installation of a new acid plant at Trail Operations, expected to deliver enhanced

operating reliability and flexibility as well as improved environmental performance. Total SO2 emissions will be likely be reduced by about 700 tonnes, between 15 to 20 per cent less than current levels. The acid plant helps turn S02 gas into fertilizer and sulphur products - used in municipal water treatment and pulp and paper. The SO2 gas shows up as a result of Teck’s zinc roasting and lead smelting process. It’s captured from these processes and sent to the acid plant and then for further treatment

in Warfield, where fertilizer products are produced. The construction of the new site, which will be located adjacent to existing acid plants in the middle of operations, will start this month and is ex-

pected to be complete in late 2013. About 300,000 hours of construction labour are required to complete the project, which equates to about 150 short-term jobs. — with files from Val Rossi.

Week

April A p i 20, 2012

Tip of the Week: The New Moon in Taurus occurs on April 21st. This generally has a stabilizing influence and activates happier moods and attitudes. With Jupiter in Taurus as well there is additional reason to believe this will be the case this year as well. Taurus is linked to gardening, construction, investments of all kinds, establishing foundations, concentrating upon personal talents and acquiring possessions that are both beautiful and enduring. April 22nd is Earth Day. This now international event began in 1970. Some Astrologers believe that Taurus is the sign that is ruled by the planet Earth. This may be true but it is more likely simply confused with the fact that Taurus is an Earth Sign. In Astrology, the Earth is the planet that sits in the middle of the Mandala chart wheel because from the stand point of our perceptual and experiential reality, the Earth is in fact at the center of the universe. Of course we know the Sun is actually at the center of the Solar System, but we have never and never will experience the universe from its center for all obvious reasons. So, it may be said that both the Earth is and the Sun is at the center – yes both. Just like light can be both a particle and a wave, depending upon the perspective of the observer. It may be that by taking the earth out of the center of the universe we have developed the erroneous and dangerous attitude that it is simply ‘just another planet’. Take this time to pay tribute the element and the planet that we call Earth.

All systems should be go by now. Your focus stands to be sharp, perhaps backed by a determination to make up for ‘lost time’. Tending to a variety of tasks and interests is likely. Preparing the ground on each front rather than following through to completion on any one will feel right. Get clear on your objectives lest you initiate more than you can complete.

Tending to matters behind the scenes has probably felt right. Now it is time to take more deliberate initiative. You likely remain in an expansive mood. Stimulating a variety on income streams and or talents and other creative expressions will bring rewards. Joining forces and merging your goals and ambitions with those of others remains important.

An interesting spectrum of flows will keep things interesting. Budding friendships have been sparked. Desires for travel or at least trying new angles of approach are emerging. Yet, you may also be happy to lay low and enjoy some quality time behind the scenes for a while. With a busy summer cycle looming, replenishing your deep energy reserves is wise.

The spark of new friendships and or stimulation of latent talents continue to stir in your world. Your energy levels stand to be on the rise as a result. Yet, it is important that you be mindful of your health so decipher if your daily routing is supporting or thwarting your constitution. Doing so will increase your confidence levels.

A create cycle is being seeded and o a variety of fronts. Acquiring new tools, techniques and knowledge is part of the plot. Making key investments may be necessary yet avoid frivolous spending, at least where larger investments are implied. Aim to build your confidence levels by taking risks.

The time has come to prepare the ground somehow. This includes accessing the resources of others, which could include knowledge. Doing inner work is also important. This includes clearing doubts and or courageously facing any lingering fears. Changes close to home have been and will continue to bubble along so keep pace with them.

Canadians are living longer and costs for the Old Age Security (OAS) are rising. On April 1, 2023 the Government of Canada plans to start raising the age of eligibility for OAS and the Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) from 65 to 67.*

What does this mean for you? 54 or older as of March 31, 2012

You may still obtain OAS/GIS at age 65

53 or younger as of March 31, 2012

The age of eligibility for OAS/GIS will change gradually between 2023 and 2029

Starting in July 2013, Canadians who are eligible for, but not yet receiving OAS will have the flexibility to delay receiving it in exchange for a higher monthly amount at a later date.

The number of working-age Canadians for every senior is decreasing** 6

The number of working-age Canadians per senior is decreasing, placing additional pressure on the OAS program.
