❚ THE WAY IT WAS

Grand Forks marooned due to floods in 1942 1907 With fine weather, about a thousand people wended their way to the grounds to join in the Firemen’s celebration Victoria Day. 1912 The Mann Drug Co. moved into the new premises on Bridge St. The store has been remodelled attractively with an ice-cream parlour fitted at the rear for the serving of summer ices. 1917 Word of the death of Wilson Fleming, who was killed in action, was received by his brother, Norman. Born in Boston, Mass., 31 years ago, he was president of the local miners’ union, director and secretary of the Grand Forks Concrete Co., and an active Oddfellow. 1922 The home of Fred Downey on First St. was entered by some culprits while the family was at the movies and quite a large amount of clothing and trinkets of various kinds taken. 1927 The Cascade-Rossland highway was opened for the season when several cars from Trail made the trip in about three hours. They came here for the Victoria Day celebration. 1932 Eddie Morrison of Greenwood, who has been taking a medical course at Queen’s University, has been awarded the Dean Fowler scholarship for the highest marks in the fourth year medical examinations. 1937 Rock Creek Farmers’ and Women’s Institutes will plant a commemorative oak tree on the grounds at the Institute hall.

Residents concerned about North Fork logging JIM HOLTZ Submitted

Concerns over logging in the North Fork Valley motivated 30 residents to meet with representatives of BC Timber Sales (BCTS) last week. The concerns that were raised by the residents included the disruption of water sources for several residences, the harm done to the habitat of the Granby grizzly bear population, the noise generated by the logging, the visual impact of the clear cuts, as well as subsequent reduction in property values. Dave Carlyle, one of the residents most seriously affected by the logging, recognized the inevitability of logging in the area, but hoped that those responsible would keep in mind the needs and concerns of the residents. “I am an optimistic person,” Carlyle said, “and I am hopeful that this is the start of a process that will address our concerns, at least to some degree.” Resident Larry Butler reflected the mood of some of the other residents and was not so optimistic. “The contractors are pinched so tight by the rates paid by the mills right now that they have no choice but to use the most expedient methods of getting the logs out, which often doesn’t leave the nicest results on the ground.” Butler was especially concerned with the plans for logging in the area on the north side of Lynch Creek, including Jones and Cannon Creeks. “This is about the last unroaded area adjacent to Gladstone Provincial Park. Opening up these areas will leave the park an island, surrounded by increasingly fragmented habitat.” The same area had been cited earlier by North Fork residents as part of the diminishing habitat for the 17 remaining Granby grizzly bears. Carlyle’s main concern was preserving his water source, Hornet Creek, but BCTS Manager

News tips

for the Kootenays, Shane Bowden, indicated to him that a reasonable buffer zone would be established to ensure the creek was not disrupted. Carlyle commented that in an earlier discussion, BCTS representatives had told the residents that the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations (MFLNRO) was feeling the pressure from government to generate revenue and that because of the low lumber prices, the size of the annual cuts was large, and they needed to be closer to urban centres and destination mills in order to reduce the cost to logging companies of harvesting. In a phone interview, BCTS Planning Officer for the Kootenays, George Edney, said that the actual location of areas to be offered for auction by BC Timber Sales is determined by a complex formula developed in 2003 under Bill 28 that takes into account dozens of factors including terrain, type and volume of wood, proximity of housing development, distance to mills, water courses and other considerations. Edney said that the final decision on the amount of wood to be harvested overall rests with MFLNRO Minister Steve Thomson. Edney reflected Carlyle’s positive reaction to the meeting. “I think it went well,” he said. “By and large the people there and the people in Grand Forks in general understand that the forest sector pays for the things that people enjoy. We were glad to hear people’s concerns about water, noise issues and the visuals. The Timber Sales Manager (Shane Bowden) was there, and he doesn’t take these things lightly.” Though no dates for future meetings were set, Edney said that BCTS hoped to meet with the individuals that are most affected after the site and harvest plans for the areas to be auctioned were complete. Carlyle confirmed that he had been promised further input at a later date.

❚ Our View

Fuel management plan worth it While preventative maintenance is something more for vehicles, the City of Grand Forks and the Ministry of Forests, Land and Natural Resource Operations (MFLNRO) could do some work that will benefit residents, especially with summer coming. City council has tentatively given approval (pending things such as public consultation) to a plan from the MFLNRO, which calls for trimming and pruning of trees and removal of dead pine needles on a parcel of land behind Extra Foods and next to Angus McDonald Park. It is all in the interests of preventing a wildfire in the city. Attack crews from an MFLNRO fire base in Grand Forks would do the work, at no charge to the city, and even if the work did dip into city coffers, it would be well worth it. The Grand Forks area saw warmer temperatures last week and while there were clouds and showers earlier this week, summer is approaching and, generally speaking, Grand Forks isn’t known to have a lot of rain in July and August. When everything is tinder-dry, it doesn’t take a lot to start a wildfire – just ask people in Kelowna – and a wildfire in the city would be catastrophic, especially in that area of Grand Forks. While city residents approved a loan authorization bylaw to borrow money to a maximum of $1.3 million for emergency water supply to the west end of the city (the area where the work would take place) work to establish that has not yet begun and a fire would put a huge strain on the water system as it is. The city has yet to consult with city residents about this and there are some inconveniences to people who live near the area where the work is about to be done – the sound of chainsaws for instance – but it is well worth it, especially with the hot dry summers that Grand Forks can have. While the cost of labour will be borne by the ministry, the city would have to pick up the tab on disposing and cleaning up the debris but it is all worth it. Being prudent doesn’t involve planning for a fire after it happens. It involves making plans before and the city is doing just that.

Question of the Week from www.grandforksgazette.ca Will you be attending the IHA meeting on May 23?

YES 32%

The right to oppose same-sex marriage Litres worth of fuel were added to the fire that is the same-sex marriage debate recently. First, U.S. President Barack Obama came out in support of gay marriage legalization, the first American president to do so. A short time later, Filipino champion professional boxer and politician Manny Pacquiao told the National Conservative Examiner that he was against gay marriage and reportedly quoted a biblical passage from Leviticus, which says, “If a man has sexual relations with a man as one does with a woman, both of them have done what is detestable. They are to be put to death; their blood will be on their own heads.” In actuality, while Pacquiao did say he was against gay marriage, he did not quote the Bible and did not condemn the gay and lesbian community.

❚ Yu Speak

KARL YU

As a matter of fact, it wasn’t the National Conservative Examiner writer’s fault, as it was other news outlets that had misquoted his story. A mall cancelled a Pacquiao appearance and an online petition to Nike to drop the boxer was started and thanks to the hot-headed nature and impulsiveness of some, there has been a lot of backtracking with the most recent developments. For the record, Pacquiao had this to say about same-sex marriage: “I just want to clarify that I didn’t say all gays should be put to death. The reporter asked me a question. He said, ‘Obama

is in favour of legalizing gay marriage and what’s your opinion?’ I told him that I’m against same-sex marriage but I didn’t say that I’m condemning gays.” The boxer and politician went on to say that he had relatives and friends that were gay and apologized but I’m thinking that some people will still be irked by his stance, after all the same-sex marriage debate is very polarizing. If Pacquiao had truly quoted Leviticus then people would be right to condemn him, after all, it would be promoting hate, but he is welcomed to his opinion against same-sex marriage, just as President Obama has a right to be in favour. Too often, it seems that people are figuratively stoned for having views opposing the liberal or conservative side. People are welcome to both so long as they don’t promote hate.

LETTERS ❚ HISTORY

Wealth of knowledge at museum Editor: Two weekends ago, I had the opportunity to attend the Okanagan Regional Heritage Fair with my 12-year-old daughter and her friend. Heritage fairs are a wonderful opportunity for students to learn more about Canadian history, to develop research skills and to foster an appreciation for the past. Both girls chose local history topics (Fructova School and the History of Phoenix). Participating in the fair was a valuable experience for the girls, but even more so because of the help they received from Sue Adrian of the Boundary Museum and Archives. Few people may realize what a treasure trove of local history can be found in the Grand Forks archives. Ms. Adrian went out of her way to make the archives available to my daughter. It was very exciting for her to piece together her great-great grandmother’s life in Phoenix through documents found in the archives. Through cemetery records, she even found out about an unknown great-aunt buried as a baby in the Phoenix cemetery. In addition, after touring the Boundary Museum the girls were able to borrow historical artifacts to use in the heritage fair. We are very fortunate to have these facilities in our community and should not take them for granted. I sincerely hope city council will recognize the value of preserving our local history when considering funding for these institutions next year. Kristen Merry, Grand Forks

❚ ENVIRONMENT

Not going green Editor: This week the Conservative government voted in favour of a 400-page budget bill that amends over 70 different acts and devotes an astonishing 150 pages to weakening laws to protect our environment. The Conservatives claim that this “streamlining” of environmental legislation is so important that it has to be passed right away. So why didn’t we hear about it until now? Why didn’t they campaign on it in the last election? And why are the Conservatives ramming all these changes through Parliament and refusing to break up the mammoth bill so that all its parts can be properly studied? The Conservatives are trying to avoid public scrutiny by cramming major environmental changes into a sweeping “kitchen sink” bill. They want to eliminate federal environmental assessments for all but a few projects and do less comprehensive reviews where they still occur. They want to eliminate protection for fish habitat, despite the fact that you don’t have fish without a habitat! All of this comes on top of announcements of 900 positions to be cut at Environment Canada. The Conservatives didn’t campaign on gutting environmental regulations, yet they are trying to pass them under the radar. They need to come clean to Canadians about their hidden agenda of environmental destruction. Yours sincerely, Kirsty Duncan, MP Liberal Environment Critic

❚ ELECTION 2013

Provincial election trends Editor: In 2011, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, and the Yukon Territory all had general provincial elections. So did Alberta in 2012. One year in advance to voting day in Alberta, Manitoba, and Ontario, polling showed

❚ COLUMN that all three incumbent governments were going down to defeat on election day and the official opposition parties were to form government. That did not happen and the end result was that taxpayers elected back the incumbent governments and the opposition parties remained just that. The premiers of Newfoundland and Labrador and Alberta retired and were replaced by new female premiers, that were elected by their party members only (not by the voting taxpayers) midterm, maintaining government until election day. The same theme is currently happening in B.C. The present government is the B.C. Liberals and the opposition, the NDP. Comments are that Liberals are supported by business and the NDP by unions. Business does give taxpayers pay cheques whereas unions do not. People will cast their votes next May. Two main items that voters will have to consider are: 1. Why did Alberta, Manitoba, and Ontario return incumbent governments when polling said otherwise and, 2. Would I ever take back a former spouse to once again bring back the nightmare and am I willing to do it with government. I think if the NDP did form government, some of those pay cheques would cease. Business does not have to invest in NDP territory. An NDP government equals layoff slips. The reality is, all governments are the same except that some are better than others. Regardless of criticisms, business vs. unions, propaganda, etc., the No. 1 item on voting day is what party is going to be best in managing tax payer dollars. Are taxpayer jobs the most important, or are lay off slips? Is it better to pump tax dollars into all government ministries and raise income tax accordingly, or is it better to control government spending in relation to what is coming from the taxpayers? “You can’t have your cake and eat it too.” Joe Sawchuk, Duncan, B.C. *** Do you have an opinion?

How to control weeds and non-native species The Grand Forks valley is quickly greening after a long winter but not all the green is necessarily good. Aggressive, non-native species of weeds lurk throughout the valley IRENE causing endless problems. ImPEREPOLKIN pacts such as the destruction of habitat for wildlife and birds, soil erosion and reduction of crop production are a few of the impacts caused by these invasive plants. Hoary alyssum runs rampant through our whole valley, along with many other species of plants, and more are being identified each year. When planning your hanging basket, flower bed or garden, select plants wisely. Non-invasive exotics should be selected. Deadhead continuously through the growing season, properly dispose of yard and garden waste. Use wildflower mixes with caution as many containers are not properly labelled and may contain invasive species. Garden ponds can also be a risk of infestation. Yellow flag iris and purple loosestrife are already causing problems in the lakes in the area. Invasive plants spread quickly. They stick to the tires of vehicles and bicycles while people drive the highways and byways of the valley. A pattern of this has been recorded by the Boundary Weed Program. Seeds can get caught in clothing, ATVs, farm equipment, wind, water, animals, bringing in hay from other areas to name a few. Seeds that are not properly cleaned can be another source. There are many things that can help reduce the spread of plants. Check clothing, equipment and pets when near a site of infestation. Remove the seeds and properly dispose of them. Avoid driving in an infested area, as seeds have been known to be spread for up to 11 km. Obtain topsoil, manure and gravel from clean sources. Check hay and straw before purchase. Biological suppression, which are natural predators that feed on a particular invasive plant, have been successful in the control of Hounds tongue, Dalmation toadflax, Diffuse knapweed to name a few. Work is being done to find something that will work on hoary alyssum. You can request release of insects for your property by contacting the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) at 1-800-355-7352. A more aggressive method of control is herbicides, which need to be used carefully. The ideal time to apply the spray is when the plant is green and actively growing and the flower is just ready to come into full bloom. Once they are dry and stressed from drought, the application will not be as successful. The site should ideally be seeded with a crop or lawn after treatment. It may take up to three years of treatment to completely rid an area of the Hoary alyssum. The RDKB has an assistance program to assist homeowners with invasive plants. The landfill will accept, free of charge, double-bagged plants after you pull them. The spray equipment loan program has equipment for loan. Backpacks, three-point hitch sprayers and skid mounts for ATVs are available. A New Invaders Program will treat up to two hectares of herbicide control for priority species plant without charge to the landowner. Also, a cost share program in RDKB Areas D and E will cover 50 per cent of the cost of herbicide treatment by a contractor for up to two hectares for a more widespread invasive plant species. For more information on these programs contact RDKB 1-800355-7352. I have been tossing about the idea of reinstating the former local weed committee in RDKB Area D. This group could work on the various methods of controlling weeds, education, and management. The inclusion of predator birds, such as starlings could also be considered. If you think you would be interested in being part of this group contact me at 250-442-3817. – Irene Perepolkin is Area D director for the RDKB.

❚ AWARD

CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

Boundary Sawmills Inc. and Community Futures Boundary have been recognized with the Community Project Award at the B.C. Economic Summit Awards banquet on May 15 in Richmond, B.C. This is the 22nd year that the Economic Development Association of BC (EDABC) and BC Hydro has presented these awards. “It’s very exciting and I was very pleased with the application going in,” said Mayor of Midway Randy Kappes. “I was a bit concerned that an area as small as ours might not get the recognition that I thought we deserved. They absolutely believed that it was a huge success even stacked up against larger communities with their bigger budgets. It shows just how hard everyone involved put in work.” Community Futures Boundary GM Wendy McCulloch was extremely pleased by the award and agreed with Kappes. “We were up against some pretty stiff competition from around the province so the award for this project felt really good,” she said. “Community projects are essential in rural areas. We don’t have the resources, financial or human, that is available in larger centres.” McCulloch explained that most people in rural communities understand the necessity to work together to make things happen. “You need strong leadership and buy-in from the community and Midway was able to pull this together, which is great for the entire region!” she

added. “It meant jobs to this small community and the surrounding region, which is a tremendous benefit for the entire area.” Boundary Sawmills President Doug McMynn was contacted but did not respond as of press time. The Village of Midway was hard hit when Pope & Talbot went bankrupt in 2007 and had to close a number of their sawmills. However, Midway did not want to see the mill closed and residents, businesses and Heritage Credit Union were able to raise the money needed too open the facility. Vaagen Brothers Lumber leases the land, but owns and operates the mill. There are over 50 people now working at the mill and makes up 40 per cent of the local tax base. A provincial association of economic development practitioners, the EDABC is dedicated to providing services that support the activities, profile and development of its members and their economic development goals. Other awards include the EDABC Presidents Award to the EDABC Burns Lake Economic Recovery Team, the Economic Development Leader of the Year to Central Okanagan Economic Development Commission, and the Marketing award presented to the District of Maple Ridge and its Town Centre Investment Incentive Program. EDABC also plays a major role in marketing BC’s competitive advantages for new investment and annually publishes the Invest in British Columbia magazine.

SD51 hopes to update playgrounds CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

School District 51 (SD51) discussed school report cards and playground equipment during its last school board meeting on May 8. Spring Report Cards Spring report cards were sent out to students on April 26. For students attending secondary school, the report cards had Semester 1 final grades and grades for the first half of Semester 2. Elementary school report cards provided cumulative grades or indicators from September to March, but did not contain anecdotal comments. Due to that parent, teacher and student conferences were held on May 1 and 2 for parents to meet with teachers to receive more information about their child’s progress. “The LRB (Labour Relations Board) ruling on April 22 had a provision in it that said if a school already had a plan in place for report cards and had already been circulated to staff, then those plans can carry on. That was the situation for SD51,” explained SD51 Superintendent of Schools Michael Strukoff. “We had already circulated our plans which included timelines, expectations of what needed to be in the report card and we had scheduled early dismissal for May 1 and 2 so teachers had time to meet with parents.” Norm Sabourin, president of the Boundary District Teachers’ Association, noted that the report cards were a point of dissension for the teachers’ federation and he. “The LRB ruling came out and it stated that teachers had until April 27 to hand in report cards to the office. Based on the original letter by the district, teachers were forced to hand in the report cards by the April 24,” said Sabou-

rin. “This is the only district in the province that forced teachers to have it done early, which is a real problem.” The LRB ruling said report cards had to be in by April 27, but SD51 is a four-day week, and April 27 was a Friday. Playground Equipment SD51 hopes to receive funding from the Ministry of Education to update elementary school playgrounds. According to secretary-treasurer Jeanette Hanlon, the playgrounds were to be categorized as minimal equipment, (and) equipment needing upgrading. “We have three schools that have not had playground equipment upgrades – Greenwood, West Boundary and Beaverdell,” said Hanlon. “The ministry will be letting the district know shortly if (it) will be funded for upgrades or replacements.” Circle of Courage SD51 Director of Instruction Maxine Ruzicka reported that there were training sessions on Circle of Courage, Medicine Wheel, Developmental Audit on April 20 to 23 as a part of Aboriginal Education. Based on Circle of Courage- Developmental Audit “the sessions enlists young people in exploring challenging life events to develop strengths and resilient coping strategies.” In her report, Ruzicka noted, “Research on resilience and brain science shows that children have universal needs for belonging, mastery, independence and generosity.” She added, “The audit prescribes specific restorative practices to build these strengths and foster growth and responsibility.” The final school board meeting is on June 12 at 6 p.m. at the School Board Office in Grand Forks.

FETAL ALCOHOL SPECTRUM DISORDER ❚ ESSAY WRITING CONTEST

Chapman’s winning FASD essay CYNTHIA GARNETT Baby’s Best Chance

Attention youth! The Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) essay-writing contest deadline for people aged 13 to 15 years and 21 to 29 years has been extended until Thursday, May 31. The prize for this is $100 each to a winner from each age group. This contest is Boundary-wide and we are hoping that youth from Christina Lake to Beaverdell will submit entries. The winner from the age group 16 - 20 years was awarded $150 and two runner-ups were awarded $50 each for submitting by the first deadline of April 30. The winner was Riley Chapman and the two runner-ups were: Ava Stellenga and Selena Demenoff. Essays must be submitted in person to the Glanville Family Centre (1200 Central Ave., Grand Forks) or emailed to cynthia.garnett@bfiss.org by Thursday, May 31. Please include your contact information with your submissions. Here is Riley Chapman’s winning essay: When you think about brain damage you likely think about tragic accidents that we have no control over. But do you ever think about the most common type of brain damage that is also one hundred per cent preventable? Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder, or FASD, is a disability that occurs when a mother consumes alcohol while she is pregnant. There is no cure and it inflicts a wide range of damages on the child. Far too many people are uneducated or don’t have the facts, but anyone who wishes to have a family needs to know the effects of FASD. It is important to know whom it happens to, why it happens and what communities need to do to support these women and put an end to this. A fetus has no control over its mother and yet the decisions she makes affect its life forever. They cannot lookout for themselves and so its time for everyone to stand up and help protect them. Each year in Canada, one in every 750 babies is born with FASD. This means that they severely or mildly suffer from physical, brain and central nervous system disabilities as well as cognitive, behavioral and emotional issues. Throughout their lives they will be subject to developmental delays, poor social skills and learning difficulties. Many other factors can affect the severity of the disability such as genetics, biological makeup and metabolism of the fetus. Some fetuses are more susceptible based on their genes. Also, post natal, if the baby suffers from any type of neglect or malnutrition then their symptoms can be heightened. Although it is impossible to predetermine how much a child will be affected by a mother drinking, we know for a fact that if the mother consumes no alcohol in pregnancy then her child will most certainly not be born with FASD. When the facts have been laid out for you, it’s hard to imagine how a mother could sentence her unborn baby to this fate. But it happens all too often. In a recent survey it was discovered that 14 per cent of women drank alcohol during their last pregnancy and 90 per cent of them were aware of the effects that this could have on their baby. The knowledge that they have about FASD is not equal to their actions. So who are these women? The rate of FASD is much higher in high-risk areas such as native reserves and areas of extreme poverty. Unplanned pregnancies, like with teenagers, have higher rates of FASD because they often don’t realize they are pregnant yet or they don’t feel ready to take responsibility for the child. From the year 1991 to 2005 there was no reduction in the amount of babies being born with FASD despite awareness and marketing. This is likely because often, the pregnant woman has low education, addiction, is living in poverty, has a partner with an addiction, is subjected to abuse or has no social network of support for her pregnancy. Also, if the woman has family history of substance abuse or a history of metal illness then this adds to the likeliness that she will drink while pregnant. Many of these women are trapped in unhealthy situations and they have no one to support them. They need a helping hand before we can see a difference. If you watch a crime occur and do nothing to stop it, are you a criminal?

These women struggle through unimaginable horrors and all we do is judge them for the decisions they make. It takes a whole community to put an end to FASD and give these women the security and support that they need. We need to reduce the blame we place on these mothers so they feel comfortable coming for help or advice. Rather than saying that if they drink they will have a disabled baby, the focus should be on encouraging them to make healthy choices before, during and after pregnancy so their child can be born healthy. This issue is not just for women. It is as much responsibility on the father as well. If he allows his partner to consume alcohol then he is just as guilty but none of the blame falls on him. Communities need to do a better job at making everyone aware of the disease and that their marketing reaches all women, even those living in remote, isolated areas or those with literacy issues. The whole community must support social change and resources need to be plentiful. These women need a safe place that they can easily get to where they can get help without judgment and that might make a difference for many women. Rather than making FASD a taboo subject there should be awareness signs everywhere! They should be visible in liquor stores, on grocery bags and on the door of every bathroom in each bar or restaurant. Nothing should be without a contact number for women who need support. Stop blaming and start encouraging change. Every baby born is a miracle so let’s challenge ourselves as a community to see less and less babies being born with FASD each year. They say it takes a whole village to raise a child and that should start from the moment it is conceived. Rather than turning your back or thinking that just because you never plan on drinking while pregnant means it isn’t your problem, give these women a lifeline. Encourage every woman you know to practice safe habits while she is pregnant and ensure that she knows this will benefit her baby as well as her. No one can change alone so its time that everybody stepped up. Protect these babies and help make the community a safe place for every child to grow up. – Riley Chapman

Public school employers filed an application to the Labour Relations Board (LRB) asking for teachers to return to activities outside of instructional hours on May 11. Due to teacher withdrawal from afterschool activities, the annual district elementary school track meet is cancelled and many field trips are not taking place, if the trip is longer than the instructional school day, and in some cases if it is over lunch. The preparation for events like the district track meet is done over a six-week period, and there is no time to plan it even if the LRB rules against the B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF), SD51 Superintendent of Schools Michael Strukoff noted. “If the LRB is successful with their ruling, I believe this will prevent the BCTF from having an organized effort at stopping teachers from volunteering their time for optional extracurricular activities like coaching,” said Strukoff. “These activities are still optional so teachers could choose to engage or not. However, the window of opportunity for many of these events has passed so I do not see much pick up this spring.” There are some extracurricular sports that have been affected, such as soccer at Grand Forks Secondary School (GFSS), though rugby will continue at GFSS with administrators coaching but opportunities for games and tournaments are reduced because of job action in other districts. “We are also facing the situation where we may have extracurriculars happen, either through parent coaching or administrator coaching, but sometimes the competition isn’t there because other districts are cancelling tournaments, or don’t have teams,” Strukoff added. At the moment, graduation ceremonies are continuing, without teacher participation, and school administrators and parents, with support from SD51, will ensure the events take place. “I would hope teachers would join the ongoing work for our grad ceremonies. Their participation in this event in our schools would certainly honour our graduating students,” Strukoff said. “A favourable ruling from the LRB would clarify teacher participation in after school activities such as participation in IEP (individual education program) meetings, meetings with parents, district committees, school planning meetings – the day-to-day meetings that are needed for planning and running our schools and district.” Norm Sabourin, president of the Boundary District Teachers’ Association, pointed out rather than building relationships and morale, the government keeps on attacking the BCTF and teachers. “Every time they come after us it’s hurting the teachers and it’s not good for the kids,” said Sabourin. “It seems like this application is coming after the BCTF and it’s all about the spin. It makes it sound like the BCTF is directing teachers not to do extracurriculars.” Sabourin noted that the movement started with classroom teachers. “It started with secondary coaches who said, ‘We, in all good conscience can’t do extracurriculars anymore,’ and from there it grew,” he said. “A number of local associations voted themselves to stop offering afterschool activities, so this started from the ground up. From there it went from the locals to the BCTF wanting to add a motion to

include extracurriculars to the action plan.” It was the membership in the province who voted for the action plan, so it wasn’t the BCTF executive who wanted anything, added Sabourin. Previously, teachers were urged not to participate in the visitation to the middle school in Aldergrove, part of the discussion of a potential middle school in School District 51. School board trustees and staff went to Aldergrove, B.C. to visit its middle school and high school for a better idea of how middle schools operate. “The reason we have chosen Aldergrove is because middle schools aren’t a new concept in the province,” said Strukoff. “There are middle schools in several districts, while others have switched back to K-7 and Grade 8-12 model.” Aldergrove was chosen due to its relationship with its middle school and secondary school, where as other districts the middle schools and high schools are separate. “The advice from BCTF was, and I agree, is that the teachers won’t be attending because it’s against the action plan which includes no extracurricular, no voluntary activities,” said Sabourin. The B.C. Public School Employers Association are currently asking the Labour Relations Board to rule against teachers and have them take part in extracurricular activities. The hearing began last Friday (May 18) and is expected to continue until today (Wednesday, May 23). On April 19, B.C. teachers voted 73-per-cent in favour of protest action to take effect immediately, which includes the full withdrawal of extracurricular activities. Of the B.C. Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) 41,000 members, 21,625 were in favour of the vote, while 7,846 were against the plan. Boundary Central Secondary School will be celebrating their graduation on June 9, while GFSS will be celebrating on June 16.

at border crossing CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

A Grand Forks resident is currently under investigation after attempting to import exotic animals over the Carson/Danville border on April 11. Border services officers examined the shipment of frogs, invertebrates and arachnids and determined that it contained animals that were listed on CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora). “The importer did not have an import or deport document as required by CITES, Environment Canada or US Fish and Wildlife,” said Faith St. John, communications advisor at Canadian Border Services Agency (CBSA). “The animals were held and Environment Canada was contacted.” According to CBSA regulations, travelers are required by law to declare all plants, animals and their products being brought into Canada. St. John would like to remind all travelers entering Canada has a role in protecting Canadians’ health and environment. “Always declare everything you are carrying when crossing the border, including food, plant or animal products,” she said. “If you are unsure whether the product is allowed, declare the item and discuss it with a border services officer.” St. John noted that penalties for failing to declare might include fines and prosecution. “We encourage all travelers to seek advice before travelling by visiting the Canada Border Services website at cbsa.gc.ca,” she concluded. The investigation is still ongoing.

❚ MOTORCYCLE SAFETY

Motorcycle Show and Shine returns KARL YU Gazette Editor

After a one-year hiatus, a motorcycle show is set to return to Grand Forks. With May being Motorcycle Awareness month, the Show and Shine is returning to the Overwaitea parking lot in Grand Forks on Saturday, May 26, beginning at 10 a.m. “What we do is we try to do this on an annual basis and raise awareness for motorcycle safety – for vehicles to share the road with motorcycles, explained organizer Diane Muscroft. “We raise a little bit of money every year and we give it to a local community, non-profit group and this year we going to be donating any proceeds to the (Boundary Community) food bank. We like to have a little show and shine and local businesses have donated prizes and awards for us to give out.” Muscroft said the participants then take a ride out to Rock Creek and do a poker run, where bikers are given cards at stops to make up a poker hand and the person with the best poker hands receives a cash prize. The “Awareness Ride” is set to take place approximately 1 p.m. “A lot of people just donate the prize back to the cause, which is really cool,” said Muscroft. There is a banner around 4th Street

COMMUNITY ❚ BOOKS

OBOK author Jennifer Craig in Greenwood

Submitted

A rollicking tale of long hours, camaraderie, and bodily fluids, along with a healthy dose of humour, comes to Greenwood Public Library on Tuesday, May 29 at 7 p.m. with a presentation by One Book, One Kootenay shortlist author Jennifer Craig. Yes Sister, No Sister, is a funny, engaging memoir of the author’s life as a trainee nurse in the 1950s in Leeds, England, delivered with Craig’s trademark Yorkshire humour. The book made the London Times’ bestseller list and has sold in excess of 100,000 copies. In Yes Sister, No Sister, we meet Craig and her colleagues: warm-hearted yet naïve girls who must endure strict discipline, long hours, and yes, those ever-present bodily fluids. But we also see the friendships that develop in sneaked trips to the cinema and mischievous escapades with young trainee doctors. The harsh conditions prove too much for some girls, but the desire to help her patients keeps Jenny reaching for compassion and humour to pull her through. One Book, One Kootenay (OBOK), a project of the Kootenay Library Federation, is a region-wide book club that celebrates the work of the talented writers living in the Kootenay Boundary. Two other great books, Tom Wayman’s collection of short stories Boundary Country, and Rita Moir’s The Third Crop: A personal and historical journey into the photo albums and shoeboxes of the Slocan Valley 1800s to early 1940s, round out the shortlist. In addition to Craig’s reading, Wayman and Moir will appear, virtually, through two short films created for the Kootenay Library Federation by Kootenay filmmaker Amy Bohigian. One Book, One Kootenay shortlisted books are chosen by a panel of learned librarians. Now, it’s up to readers to vote for the book all Kootenay booklovers should read this year. All of the OBOK shortlisted books are available in your local library.

Q. A.

What’s with this mufÀn top? How do I get rid of it?”

The “muffin top”, similar to the “spare tire” is located above the beltline, whereas the latter is below the waist. In any case, the deposit of fat is primarily determined by your genetics. Unfortunately the fat may come off elsewhere before any change is seen in your target areas, that’s ok since you’ll run out of subsidiary fat eventually! Starting with diet, eliminate trans fats, high fructose corn syrup and excess carbohydrates before bed time. Practice going to bed a bit hungry, you’ll have fewer calories to convert to fat and you’ll sleep deeper. Become a breakfast eater and eat 5 - 6 small meals a day to eliminate the need to store body fat since fuel is constantly entering the body. The next step is to become an athlete in your own realm. Compete with yourself and push your exercises to the next level on every workout, then see your body take shape.

I have a lower back injury and am walking with a cane. I am noticing now the pain is moving into my shoulders and upper back. What should I do to minimize the stress on my upper body while my lower back heals?”

Q.

Using a cane should not cause upper back pain. First determine what is causing the low back pain! Is it an injury? Disc Problem? Degenerating spinal problem? Etc. Most of these problems can be corrected with Chiropractic spinal therapy, if so, get a much corrective therapy as possible. Only a chiropractor can tell if the problem can be helped with chiropractic therapy. If unable to do so, perhaps learning how to use a cane or crutches may help. Check length of cane to body requirement. This will allow the arm, and shoulder to function normally. Crutches may have the same problem. Proper length of crutch to shoulder height has to be determined for each person. Once corrected this should take a lot of stress off the upper back.

Good news! The little city that won the best water award in the world now has a cool foliage basket or container planting to boast about! The “the Greenwood “is all foliage which means no deadheading & takes part shade to full sun. Start with a big container or hanging basket one that will hold at least 7 – 9 gallons of soil, #1 sunshine mix potting soil and a slow release fertilizer 14-14-14

Insurance Broker

Financial Advisor Can you “auto debit” my account for monthly contributions regarding investments, and what is the minimum monthly dollar amount accepted? I only have $50/mo. that I can dedicate to investing.

Q. A.

Yes, most deÀnitely! An auto debit or PAC (preauthorized checking) can be set for as little as $50 per month. You’d be surprised at how even $50 per month can add up over time. For example if you are age 35 and you contribute $50 per month until you are 65, you would have close to $50,000 if you earned an average of 6% per year. By doing this you also take advantage of a strategy called Dollar Cost Averaging by investing when the markets are low, and less when the markets are high. Over time, this lowers your overall cost of your investment and takes the worry out of Àguring out the “right time” to invest.

Q

What are my options as the owner of a Rented Dwelling?

A

As an owner of a rented dwelling it is important to understand the coverage available to you. On the dwelling itself there are two options for coverage: “Broad Form” or “Named Perils”. A Broad From policy covers the building and attached structures on an “All Risk” basis with a few exclusions. A Named Perils policy lists the specific perils covered. This means the Broad Form is a more extensive coverage. In the event of a loss, settlement can be based on either “Replacement Cost” or “Actual Cash Value. RC reflects “new value” and ACV reflects “depreciated value” on either the building or contents. Note: There may be certain criteria your dwelling must fit to obtain certain options. For your protection it is recommended to carry a minimum of $2,000,000 Personal General Liability. This liability protects you in the event of bodily injury or property damage where you are liable for as owner of the property. It is also recommended the tenants carry a “Tenants Package” that will include a liability limit for losses where they are deemed liable. In these cases their policy can pay for the loss instead of the owners. Other options include: tenants damage, sewer backup, dwelling glass, rental income protection, landlord contents and outbuildings. With all the options available to you, it is essential you talk to your Broker. Call or visit any one of our eight offices for a no obligation quote. Visit us online at www.rhcinsurance.com.

Preparing for the birth of your baby KRISTY KUROMI Submitted

You’re having a baby! Or maybe you’re not but your partner is. You’re likely experiencing so many emotions – joy, anticipation and maybe even a little apprehension at the thought of labor. Take comfort and know that birth is natural and that a woman’s body was perfectly designed for this. Even knowing this, you may still have questions or need a little guidance. Birth itself may only take a day in a woman’s life but it is rare that she will experience any other event in which she feels as vulnerable, powerful, fearful, stressed and exhilarated. This experience is one that will stay with you for the duration of your life. Research shows that birth memories do not fade or dull in time, they continue to be vivid and have an impact on how you live the rest of your life. How can we increase our odds of having the most satisfying and positive birth experience? By surrounding ourselves with great support and preparing ourselves to the best of our abilities. Labor and birth is such an “in the moment” experience – you simply cannot predict exactly how you will react until you’re there.

Preparation builds confidence and quality birth preparation should provide you with several tools for your birth tool box. Quality tools such as, evidence-based information on pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and early parenting (including knowing your options and choices), tips on how to be an informed consumer and getting the answers you need, increased confidence in your own ability to have a normal birth and, of course, comfort measures and coping techniques for the actual labor and delivery. Childbirth education classes are also a great way to connect with other pregnant women and their families, a time to shut off the rest of the world and focus on the baby you are growing and are about to meet. There are several sources that Grand Forks’ families can access to get prenatal education and support. In addition to the information they will receive from their health care provider, Selkirk College offers Lamaze certified prenatal classes, the Baby’s Best Chance pregnancy program offers regular prenatal information classes in a variety of formats, Public Health sometimes offers a Prenatal in a Day and you can even find prenatal classes online. Most families attend prenatal classes in their third trimester but there are ear-

ly pregnancy classes available as well. With such a variety of options, any family should be able to find a format to suit their particular needs. It’s International Doula Month so it’s the ideal time to mention how a doula can support a family in their prenatal education. Doulas are well trained in the physiology of normal birth and coping techniques that can be used in labour; they can help families get the information they need to make informed decisions about the upcoming birth. Doulas are aware of the many different labour and birth outcomes and can support no matter how the birth happens. If you bring your doula to your childbirth education classes, she can explore with you what you’ve learned and remind you of your interests at the time of your labor. Your doula will be well aware of your understanding of the perinatal process and where you may need more support, suggest additional resources and support you in communicating with your care provider. A doula can play an important role in your prenatal preparations. To explore your options regarding your own prenatal education, please contact Baby’s Best Chance at the Boundary Family Center, Selkirk College, Public Health or the Kootenay Doula Group.

B.C. Rural Communities Summit coming to Grand Forks MARY BUTTERFIELD Community Futures Boundary

From June 7 to 9, over 150 people are expected to travel to Grand Forks to attend and participate in the BC Rural Communities Summit. The theme of this year’s summit is “Grassroots, Growing Sustainable Rural Communities,” and will feature a keynote address by Selkirk College CEO Angus Graeme focused on community based life-long learning. The BC Rural Communities Summit is co-sponsored by the Regional District of Kootenay

Boundary and the BC Rural Network. The BC Rural Network was founded in 2004 in order to problematize and develop solutions for the complex issues that face rural and remote communities. The BC Rural Network has co-sponsored six rural community summits since its inception, and with each instantiation, the support and participation has grown. Conference participants can look forward to workshops, networking, and gaining knowledge and tools to apply to their own rural communities.

Changing How We Think About Mental Illness

Summit workshops and presentations will feature industry leaders with the goal of creating and enhancing awareness around issues of importance to rural and remote communities across all regions of B.C. providing participants with practical tools and strategies that can be translated into actions in their communities and offering valuable opportunities to network with and learn from rural colleagues. The BC Rural Communities Summit is organized from the perspective of rural communities province-wide, and the workshops therefore broadly reflect

issues of interest and concern for multiple communities. However, this year’s conference will feature a variety of workshops focused on themes that are particularly relevant to the Boundary area, such as agriculture, heritage, and tourism. The emphasis on tourism will bring motivation and inspiration for small business owners, arts and heritage organizations, recreational providers and more heading into the busy summer season. While the focus of the conference will be developing economically and socially-sustainable ru-

ral communities, the conference itself will provide a significant boost to our local economy, kickstarting theory into practice! The influx of visitors will impact local hotels, restaurants, stores, and other businesses and will provide Boundary locals with an opportunity to show off everything the region has to offer. More information, including registration details and the conference agenda, can be found at www.bcruralsummit.ca, or by contacting Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Sarah Winton at 250-442-2722.

COMMUNITY ❚ FILMS

Spotlight Films and salmon fishing SPOTLIGHT FILMS Submitted

On Tuesday, May 29, Spotlight Films will be presenting Salmon Fishing in The Yemen starring Ewan McGregor, Emily Blunt, Kristin Scott Thomas, and Amr Waked. This is another directorial creation from Lasse Hallstrom who directed such memorable gems as Chocolat, Cider House Rules, and What’s Eating Gilbert Grape, so I guess not much need be told about his talents in the field. The story is adapted from the novel by Paul Torday, the screenplay written by Simon Beaufoy, and could well be a statement on the misguided virtues of those with too much money and time at their disposal. Dr. Alfred Jones (McGregor), Britain’s leading fisheries expert, is approached to fulfill the improbable dream of Sheikh Muhammed (Waked), who believes his vision of bringing fly fishing to the river and fish unfriendly Yemeni desert will enrich the lives of its citizens. Jones understandably rejects the idea as absurd and slinks back into the predictably dull and boring life he has built for himself. There, of course, would be no

story if the Prime Minister’s overzealous press secretary, Patricia Maxwell (Thomas), didn’t latch onto the idea as being a great opportunity to display some international good will. Maxwell, in scene stealing and hilarious fashion, convinces the good doctor that participating in the project would be in his and everyone else’s best interests. The interests served would be a distraction from the blood-letting in Afghanistan and the fact that there are two million anglers in Britain. So begins the improbable journey and a hint of romance. Jones, whose marriage is tepid in the good moments, is thrust into the situation with Harriet (Blunt), whose soldier boyfriend is missing in Afghanistan. Salmon Fishing in the Yemen will be shown at the Gem Theatre at 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, May 29, as mentioned. On behalf of Spotlight Films I would like to remind everyone that film season passes are still available at the remarkably low cost of $42, that’s $4.20 for each film. Spotlight Films would like to thank our sponsors and supporters.

Bam! Pow! Shazam! 11th Street Kids’ Theatre presented its original play Shazam! on May 17 at the Grand Forks Secondary School auditorium.

COMMUNITY ❚ EMERGENCY RESPONSE

Missing house numbers waste time during emergencies town there are a number of houses where the house numbers are either missing or just in a bad spot that we have a hard time finding them.” Regional District of Kootenay Boundary Area D Director Hidden house numbers make it difficult for emergency Irene Perepolkin noted that it is up to residents to number crews to quickly find homes during emergency calls. With numbers partially hidden or located in a difficult to their own houses and make them visible. “We do charge a fee for house numbering, but that’s just to see position, quick response times are slowed down when register the house number,” she said. “It’s up to the people to emergency crews are unable to locate the home. Jeff Olsen, unit chief for Grand Forks Ambulance Servic- make their numbers visible so that if they call the ambulance or anything they can really es, pointed out there are quite a few see it. I know that it’s difficult homes in Grand Forks that don’t when you’re driving along to maintain their homes and the shrubfind a number, but residents bery grows on it. need to make sure they’re vis“We were at a house the other day ible.” and we were driving up and down Heriot explained that when the road but couldn’t see the numbers he first moved to Grand Forks, because the shrubbery covered it,” he it was easier to figure out said. “We had to call back dispatch for The easier it is for us to find where people lived. the address and in the end we had to “When you wanted to ask them to stand outside to flag us a house number, the quicker it know where someone lived, down.” is we can get to the resident and you asked someone in town Olsen noted that it is even more and they’d said, ‘It’s the blue difficult in the rural areas where the start helping people ... house, third one down on numbers are far apart. the left’,” he said. “Well now “When you drive out to the farm there’s a lot more houses in area you’re logically thinking it town than there used to be and should be the next one, but when you so those days are long gone. get there, it’s not,” he added. Dale Heriot, fire chief for Grand Forks Fire and Rescue When we get called on dispatch they don’t give us names they give us numbers, and they don’t tell us it’s the blue house, pointed out that some houses don’t have any numbers at all. Along with hidden numbers, some are placed too far back, third one down on the left.” The biggest thing is for people to put their house numbers are too small, or too dark in colour, Heriot stated. “All these reasons affect us when we work because then someplace visible like on the garage and make it big enough we have to get out with our spotlights to search for numbers to see, Heriot stated. “The easier it is for us to find a house number, the quicker house to house,” he said. “The last thing you want to do at two in the morning is shining your light in someone’s front it is we can get to the resident and start helping people,” concluded Heriot. “When we have to drive up and down a street, windows trying to find a house number.” Heriot said it is an ongoing problem, with some areas in that’s time wasted.” Olsen added, “People should drive by their house at night Grand Forks that are better than others. “In the rural areas, especially with the long driveways, if and see if they can see their address from the road at night they don’t have a number out at the post at the end of the time. If they can see their house number then they’re good to driveway it makes it real heard to find a place,” he said. “In go.”

The Grand Forks Archery Club held its first-ever, two-day 3D event recently and it was a blast. It was located at a brand new venue near Christina Lake, along the Kettle River, a gorgeous setting with the murmur of the water to lull all the campers to sleep. We had folks from numerous communities in the Okanagan, West Kootenays, and as far east as Sparwood attend with their families, and everyone found this new place to their liking. The course was easy to navigate and the shots were interesting, varied and fair. A huge thanks to a very hard working crew who had to build the courses from scratch, since we had nothing established prior to a short two-week notice that we’d have to move from the rodeo grounds area in Grand Forks. Thanks also to the property owner, who stepped up and offered his large acreage as a fine replacement location. The registration and scoring chores were hectic but handled admirably, an unsung job, which we greatly appreciated. We also had a concession stand set up for breakfast and lunch, which prevented lots of us from starving to death. Many Grand Forks merchants generously donated door prizes and the majority of the shooters went home with goods.

Gazette’s 5th Annual

A giant steel buck, with fire in his eyes, made his appearance Saturday evening and many brave archers tried their hand at hitting the softer bull’s-eye. There were categories for youth, ladies and men, with the longest winning distance stretched out to 68 yards; OK, 61 metres. Cascade Archery gave a generous donation to make the event a success, but we suspect that will be recouped in increased arrow sales to replace those that met their demise against the hide of the steel buck. Congratulations to all the winners and other high placings in each category for the weekend, including several talented local shooters. Placing high in the youth categories were Brent Plotnikoff and Acacia Lucke, while Lee Bedard figured prominently in the ladies division. The winner of the “really old guys class” was Gary Onions. We had unique trophies, which caught the eye of everyone there – first-place winners received plasma-cut steel trophies (same artist who manufactured the steel buck), second-place finishers received plaques, done skillfully by one of our members and thirds got ribbons for their efforts, and fine ribbons they were! We’re looking forward to hosting everyone who attended this as well as many more shooters at our future events.

Christina Lake resident Ashley Christman hopes to land a spot with Team Canada and enter the 2016 Olympics in Brazil. Christman is attending the Canadian National Women’s Volleyball Training Facility in Winnipeg, Man. from May 20 to 25. Competing against 54 volleyball players in Canada, she hopes to gain a spot on one of two national teams. “They pick an A team and a B team, so they pick 24 people overall,” she explained. “I would like to be in the A team, but even to be on the B team would be awesome. I would be happy with either or.” The A team will work towards winning a berth in the 2014 World Championships and the 2016 Olympics, while the B team will represent Canada in the World Universiade Games (FISU) in Russia in 2013. Christman is able to attend the five-day training facility with the support of local organizations. The Christina Lake Fire fighters donated $1,000, and the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary grant-in-aid program provided $350. According to father Martin Christman, the Christina Lake firefighters have generously supported Ashley since she was 15 years old, through her many volleyball adventures, Team BC, and Kelowna elite women’s teams. Martin is also a volunteer firefighter. “A big thank you to the Christina Lake firefighters for supporting Ashley and the many other youth and organizations throughout our community,” he stated. At six-feet (1.8 metres), Christman spin serves at 85 km/hr and can spike at 90 km/hr. When she performs a jump touch, she can reach 10 feet and 3 inches (3.1 metres). “I just really love the sport,” Ashley Christman said. “It’s really fun to compete with everyone and I’ve always loved doing it.” Christman currently plays in the United States National Collegiate Athletes Association (NCAA) Division 1 and attends the University of Idaho under a full athletic scholarship. The Idaho Vandals compete in the Western Athletic Conference.

She has just finished her second year of university, where she is majoring in Exercise Sciences and Health. During the season, Christman practices three hours everyday, except for Sundays, and lifts weights three times a week in the morning with her team. To aspiring athletes, she notes to keep at it. “Love the sport that you’re doing and work hard everyday,” she said.

Grand Forks’ Van Camp benefits from B.C. Summer Games’ experience der-17, West Kootenay Diamondbacks baseball team of the Spokane American Legion league recently. “That experience helped with everything – hitting and fielding,” Van Camp said when asked what about 2010 benefitted him. He estimates that his batting average during the 2010 summer games was somewhere between .250 and .285 and he had butterflies going in. “There was a lot of people there and it was just nervewracking,” reminisces Van Camp. “At my first at bat, I was hoping to make a hit.”

Grand Forks resident Travis Van Camp is using his experience from the B.C. Summer Games to his advantage. Van Camp, played second base for Team B.C. at the 2010 B.C.

BHA hosts spring show Learning to swim LILLY BRYANT

CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

Grand Forks Recreation

The Boundary Horse Association kicked off another season with recreational and heritage shows. Wendy Price, president of the Boundary Horse Association, noted people can join the association without having any horse knowledge. “In some sense yes, but you can join the association without being a horse person,” she said. “We do have some members who just joined because they enjoy horses but they don’t know a whole lot about them.” Price enjoys the challenge, connection with the horses, relaxation and the partnership required between rider and horse. “There’s a lot of stuff that I enjoy about riding horses,” she added. “It’s a horse-orientated club geared towards family fun, learning, some competition and some recreational. It’s an opportunity to connect with coaches and local horse people.” The BHA hosted its annual Heritage Spring Show on May 11 to 13 and it was a general performance show with Eastern and Western dressage and jumping on Friday. Saturday saw some English classes, while Sunday featured Western classes. “This leads up to the Heritage finals down in Maple Ridge this year,” Price explained. “It’s a sanctioned event and we (had) people coming in from Kelowna, the South Okanagan, from the east Kootenays.” Price pointed out that these events are good for people who are interested in learning about horses. A non-profit organization, the Boundary Horse Association (BHA) focuses on family activities, along with horse shows and recreational shows. For more information, visit boundaryhorse. ca.

Swimming lessons are a life-long skill that has proven to be valuable. An average of 400 Canadians drown each year in Canada and the ability to swim is important but swimming skills alone aren’t always enough. Learning water safety is the key to preventing an emergency in or on the water, and also teaches what to do if you find yourself in an emergency situation. June 2 to 10 is Water Safety week in Canada, an annual campaign to educate Canadians on how to stay safe around water and prevent drowning incidents. During this week, we will be offering the swim to survive challenge during our public swim hours. Check out the Canadian Red Cross webpage for more details on safety tips. To kick off water safety week, we will be offering a Boat Pro Course on Saturday, June 2 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in the arena viewing room. Pre-registration is required. Instructor Mike Fairweather with Power Sail and Squadron provides current and up-to-date information about safe boating. *** It is the law that you must carry an operator’s license with you while you are operating a motorized boat. Grand Forks Recreation (GFREC) offers swim lessons for all ages from six-months to seniors. The next set of lessons will starts Monday, July 9, with a new session starting weekly throughout the summer. Space is limited so please call today reserve the week that best for you. *** If you are 16 years or older, love working with children and have a love for water, a career in aquatics might be for you. The water safety instructor course teaches you the proper techniques and skills to teach children and adults how to swim. The Grand Forks Aquatic Centre will be offering a course from Monday, July 2 to Friday, July 6 and the deadline to register is Monday, June 25. *** The Christina Lake Recreation Commission is seeking volunteers to help with the annual Pharmasave Christina Lake Triathlon. This event has attracted athletes from all over the western part of Canada and many athletes have returned from the past years.

Fructova history wins Stellar award On May 11, Ana McGill and Avery Nordman travelled to Vernon, B.C. to compete in the Okanagan Regional Heritage Fair. Although students were able to choose any area of Canadian history, both girls focused on local history topics and were also able to incorporate a family history connection. Anaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s project, on the history of the Fructova school, won a Stellar award. Averyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s project, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Phoenix, B.C. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The story of a Ghost Town,â&#x20AC;? won the Canadian History Medal and she was also chosen as one of the students to attend the Provincial Heritage Fair in Abbotsford, B.C. at the end of June. Both girls would like to give a special thanks to Sue Adrian at the Boundary Museum and Archives for all her help.

TOM CHERMSNOK “Uncle” Tom passed away peacefully at Sunshine Manor at Grand Forks on May 12, 2012. He was born on December 16, 1940, at Edmonton, Alberta. He spent his childhood at Rocky Mountain House, Springfield Oregon, Kelowna and Calgary. He worked in Calgary until 1970 when he moved to Vernon, B.C. He did various sales jobs there before moving to Grand Forks in 1977. He opened up “Olden Times”, a second hand store in 1978 which although not very successful, it became a meeting place for many people. The doors closed in 1983. His final job was with John Dowedoff at Kastco Industries where he really found his niche. As well as working along side John, he always had the coffee pot on for whoever came into the store. With the sudden closing of the business Tom was forced into early retirement. He found a love in woodcarving and spent may happy days creating. When the cedar dust became too much for him he moved his interest to rocks, fossils and minerals, and became involved with the Boundary Mining Association. He spent many years volunteering at the Labour Day Baseball Tournament and was a long time member of the Lions Club. He was a regular at the A&W for coffee in the mornings and his favourite thing was to go to the yard sales and buy stuff no one else would ever buy. He loved people and always had a welcoming hug for the ladies. His health deteriorated over the last two years and was rarely seen out. He is survived by his spouse, Penny Mansell; his son, Shane of Summerland (Brenda); grandchildren: Alysha of Lethbridge, Blayne and Zachery; and two great-grandsons: Jovin and Riley; his mother, Roberta; sisters: Tanya, Sandra and Trina; brother, Randy; and many nephews and nieces. Cremation has taken place. There will be a celebration of his life held on Friday, June 22, 2012, from noon to 2 p.m., at the Senior’s Centre at City Park. In lieu of flowers, please make a donation to Habit for Humanity –Boundary Soc., Box 1088, Grand Forks, BC, V0H-1H0. Grand Forks Funeral Home had care of arrangements.

Notice of Passing PAULINE STRELIOFF (nee Strelaeff) Pauline was born on June 11, 1918, at Veregin, Saskatchewan, and passed away peacefully on the morning of Wednesday, May 16, 2012, at Hardy View Lodge at Grand Forks, British Columbia. She would have been 94 years old next month. Pauline is now joyfully reunited with her dear husband Nick, who predeceased her in 1993; as well as her parents, Dora and Samuel Strelaeff; her brother, Alex; her sisters, Norma and Mary; and her niece, Lorrie Dennison. She is survived by her daughter, Margaret Liddle (Howard) of Grand Forks; and by her son, Leonard Archer (Louise) of Hong Kong. She has six grandchildren: Tabitha and Melanie Gibson, Justin, Ryan, Adam and Stacy Archer; and seven great-grandchildren: Alexis, Rachelle, Jeffrey, Taylor, Nicholas, Andrea and Danny. She is also survived by nieces and nephews on both sides of the family. Pauline spent her early childhood years living on the family farm near Veregin, Saskatchewan. She lost her mother when she was about 11 years old and then her father a few years later. She had to become a strong, independent and self-sufficient woman very early in her life. At the age of 25, she married Nick Strelioff on July 16, 1943, at Princeton, B.C. They subsequently moved to Oliver, B.C., where she gave birth to their first child, Margaret. They later moved to Genelle, B.C., where their son, Leonard was born. They briefly lived in Greenwood, B.C., before making Grand Forks their permanent home in 1957. Mom had stories of all the places that they lived and recalled those days fondly in her later years. Over the years, she worked as a waitress and a cook, an orchard worker, and a field hand as well as being a full time mom. In her retirement years, she started a cottage industry, which allowed her to do what she was passionate about. She had a love for being outdoors and a passion for gardening. She became well known in the Community as the to-go-person for seedlings and starter plants, and for her voluminous garden. After moving into town, Pauline worked part time for Ann’s Bake Shop up to the ripe old age of 80. Pauline’s legacy to us all is her exemplary work ethic, persistence, determination and endurance. Mom enjoyed cooking, canning, sewing, crocheting and knitting. Nothing gave her more satisfaction and pleasure than seeing family and friends enjoy a bountiful meal of fresh garden produce and ample borscht and bread. She was quick witted with a good sense of humour. Mom moved to Boundary Lodge a the age of 92 and enjoyed many special friendships with staff, residents and their families. We wish to thank all of the staff members at Boundary and Hardy View Lodges who loved Mom and treated her as though she was one of their own. Baba, you are loved and thoughts of you will remain in our hearts. May you rest in the loving arms of God. Funeral services will be held on Saturday, May 26, 2012, at 10 a.m., in the chapel of Grand Forks Funeral Home. Burial to follow at the Sion Russian Doukhobor Cemetery. Everett Baker of Grand Forks Funeral Home was entrusted with funeral arrangements.
