Heavy rains create emergency situation BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

Last week’s heavy rains and snow melts resulted in orders to declare emergencies in the Slocan Valley, Crawford Creek and Goat River areas, Regional District of Central Kootenay chair John Kettle said on Monday. Kettle expressed concern that the Goat River near Highway 21 has become a recur-

ring problem. “This is a self-inflicted problem in my opinion,” he said. “It needs remediation, not fixes after the flood damage has been done.” Federal regulations to protect fish habitat are to blame, Kettle said, and he wants the issue addressed before another season of flooding affects property and animal owners.

Theatre group in need of storage BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

Like most community theatre groups, Creston’s Footlighters Theatre Society gets by with a little help from their friends. And right now, it needs help from someone who can offer a storage site. “We are in desperate need of storage space,” said board member Ann Deatherage. “The space that we have been using is now needed by the owner.” The organization needs a minimum of 400 square feet of dry space, preferably with lights, close to or in town. “Moving is hard on the sets,” said Jon Smith who, like Deatherage, works behind the scenes and also on stage to help Footlighters put on shows that are nearly always of appeal to families. “We have some set pieces that are constantly being recycled for productions,” she said. “Some of our scenery flats have been used for 20 years or more.” The catch, Deatherage added, is that the group doesn’t have money to rent space. “We can’t commit to making any kind of meaningful payment,” she said. “We usually break even or make only a tiny profit from our productions. Theatre rental, production rights and scripts eat up most of what we bring in at the door.” While the sets take up 400 square feet, it would be ideal to have a larger space so that volunteers can have easy access and sight of the pieces so they can see what they have to work with. “We are hoping to find someone who supports the arts and can donate the space. We have lots of skills and manpower,” Deatherage said. “There would only be people around the space in the three weeks before a play — the sets just sit there the rest of the year.” Smith said the group could help out with minor repairs or finishing in exchange for a suitable space, and that tickets to Footlighters’ productions will be provided to the donor. “Footlighters helps keep us off the streets,” he laughed. “Our smallest productions involve probably 15 people and one like Aladdin requires as many as 60 performers and behind-the-scenes volunteers. “We think that local theatrical productions add life to our community,” Deatherage said. “Now we hope someone who agrees will offer some storage space.” For more information, contact Ann Deatherage at 250-866-5723.

Rain, snow cause washout near Gray Creek, Kootenay Pass closure, Crawford Bay evacuations BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor Residents in 16 Crawford Bay homes were allowed to return home on June 7 after an assessment of Crawford Creek by a hydrologist, a geotechnical engineer and Regional District of Central Kootenay (RDCK) staff allowed an evacuation order to be lifted. The homes and several business were evacuated around 10:45 p.m. on July 6 after a dike along Crawford Creek partially failed. An evacuation centre was set up at the Crawford Bay Hall, but was unused as all of the displaced residents found accommodation with family or friends. “There was water coming over the dike and piping through in one section, and there was another section that started to do that,” said Bill Macpherson, public information officer with the

Regional District of Central Kootenay’s Emergency Operations Centre, from his Nelson office. “The staff on the ground decided to err on the side of caution.” After the residents returned, an 80-metre section of concern was monitored through the night. The most serious breaches were filled with rock, clay and earth from a neighbouring property and nearby stockpiles, said an RDCK press release. Areas of water piping and overflow will also be addressed, in an attempt to decrease water flow and levels. “Residents, particularly those within the evacuation alert area, should use vigilance and be aware of the potential danger that still exists,” said Macpherson in the press release. “Rivers, creeks and streams — and their banks — are dangerous throughout the spring runoff period. The heavy rains of the past 72

hours and the forecast for more precipitation in the coming days reinforces this danger.” The heavy rains also caused a washout near Gray Creek, which led to the closure of Highway 3A from the evening of June 6 to the late afternoon of June 8. This was the second major traffic disruption on the fringes of the Creston Valley, after heavy snowfall caused a June 6 traffic accident on Kootenay Pass that stopped traffic for several hours near Highway 3’s Salmo-Creston summit. The highway reopened shortly after 8 p.m. that day. Residents experiencing a flooding emergency or needing to evacuate should contact the Provincial Emergency Program (1-800-663-3456) for assistance. Proper sandbagging techniques and other emergency information can be found at

Prevention, not repair, needed

From page 1 “To preserve every inch of a river and call it fish habitat is ridiculous,” Kettle said, adding that he did get Department of Fisheries and Oceans approval to move in equipment to prevent further erosion to the river banks last week. “Our senior levels of government are willing to spend millions of dollars after the damage is done, but they won’t spend anything to prevent it — it doesn’t make sense.”

Kettle said he has asked for a meeting with Kootenay-Columbia member of Parliament David Wilks and officials from the ministries of environment, and fisheries and oceans. “I want to see a plan in place to mitigate now instead of spending millions after there is a major flood,” he said. “I hope we can arrive at a reasonable solution to where everyone is satisfied.” Kettle is working on a proposal that would see the construction of a Kokanee fish hatchery placed on the river’s south

channel. It would be operated by the Lower Kootenay Band (LKB), he said, and help to restock Kootenay Lake. His plan would include shoring up riverbanks that are now susceptible to erosion, threatening property and animals whenever spring runoffs are high. “We could create long-term sustainability for Kootenay Lake and get it back to where it used to be as a fish habitat, add employment for the LKB and protect property owners,” he said. “It would be a win-win.”

Mid-week market starts July 5 From page 1 “Since last fall, Jen Comer, the former market manager, and others worked on developing a new business plan for the Creston Valley Farmers’ Market through an enterprising nonprofit grant,” said Creston Valley Food Action Coalition president Len Parkin. “Details of that will be shared at the vendors meeting and the vendors newsletter.” Comer is currently on maternity leave, prompting the promotion of Movold, her former assistant, and the hiring of Boland to share the workload. “My passions are food security and sovereignty, in particular for the Creston Valley,” said Boland, who has lived in the Creston Valley for about

seven years. “It’s kind of like a dream come true to work at the farmers’ market. I could easily spend a lot of time there, anyway.” The co-managers noted that vendors are needed to fill a few niches from pet products to clothing, and that volunteers are needed to fill two-hour shifts at the Saturday market, which runs 8 a.m.noon next to Millennium Park. Volunteers will be even more vital when the midweek market kicks off on July 5, running 10 a.m.-2 p.m. on Thursdays behind the Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce, a location that vendors appreciated during the first weekend of May, when the West Coast Amusements carnival displaced the market. “They loved it,” said Movold. “We

had a lot of requests to just move the market there.” To spice things up a little, the June 30 market will celebrate Canada Day, and the managers have asked vendors to have themed booths, giving the long weekend an extra shot of patriotism. Parkin is thrilled with the enthusiasm the co-managers have for the market, and enjoys seeing them run it. “All of this is leading to a bigger, more vibrant market that the community can look forward to being a part of,” said Parkin. “I’m excited about the potential our two new co-managers bring to the market in terms of their dynamism, creativity, passion and commitment to carrying on what Jen Comer created so ably.”

Nilsson golfing to help foundation BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

For the second year in a row, Alex Nilsson will spend 24 hours at the Creston Golf Club, playing round after round to raise funds for the Creston-Kootenay Foundation (CKF). On June 24, Nilsson will start playing at 6 p.m. and play through the night until 6 p.m. the following evening — and possibly longer. “If I still have any steam left, I might go to midnight,” he said. Last year, Nilsson raised over $6,000 through sponsor donations, and played 150 holes from midnight to midnight. This year, he said, his goal is to play 180 holes, or 10 rounds, and then push for as close to 200 as possible. The money raised will be placed in an endowment fund managed by the CKF, which invests the proceeds and returns the income to the community through grants to charities and non-profit groups. Since its founding in 2005, the CKF has invested over $800,000 and granted over $160,000. Money comes from

fundraisers, donations and bequests in people’s wills. Nilsson has been golfing regularly for five or six years, and although his game isn’t spectacular — “I’m not a great golfer, but I can hit a ball” — he was ready for a new challenge. “I just wanted to do golf for 24 hours,” he said. “I wanted to see how to go about playing in the dark and how many holes I could do.” His friend, Terje Munkerud, assisted Nilsson with a flashlight during the night, and he will again use glowing balls that are easy to see in the dark. Compared to some of Nilsson’s other feats, 24 hours of golfing seems relatively easy. Following his retirement, Nilsson roller skied across Canada to raise funds for the Canadian Diabetes Association, and ran eight marathons within an eight-month period. He has also won a number of events in the B.C. and Canadian masters competitions in both cross-country skiing and track and field.

Increased turbidity triggers BOIL WATER NOTICE The Regional District Central Kootenay (RDCK) has issued a BOIL WATER NOTICE for users on the Riondel Water System. Recent testing shows that current water quality is AT HIGHER RISK due to fluctuating chlorine residual disinfection levels and turbidity, or cloudiness. Health risk increases as turbidity levels rise. The RDCK and Interior Health recommend that all customers drink boiled water or a safe alternative until further notice. Water intended for drinking, washing fruits and vegetables, making beverages or ice, or brushing teeth should be boiled for one minute. Boiled water should then be refrigerated in a clean, covered container. Customers could also choose to use bottled or distilled water, or water that has been filtered through a well-maintained treatment device. Health risks increase as turbidity rises, particularly for at-risk populations such as newborns, the elderly, and people with weakened immune systems. Contaminants such as viruses, bacteria, and parasites can attach themselves to the suspended particles in turbid water. These particles can then interfere with disinfection, limiting chlorine’s ability to remove or inactivate the contaminants. Owners of all public facilities must post Boil Water Notices at all sinks or drinking water fountains accessible to the public (alternatively, public fountains and taps may be turned off). As opportunities arise, they must also advise their clientele verbally of the Boil Water Notice. The RDCK is taking additional measures to reduce risk. Interior Health has been fully involved, and the public will be notified when conditions change or water quality has improved. We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause, and appreciate your cooperation and patience during this time. If you have any questions please contact the RDCK at 250-352-6665 or check out our website at

Nilsson’s decision to contribute to the CKF was an easy one. “I believe in the concept of the Creston-Kootenay Foundation very much. The proceeds from that do a lot of good in the community. There are many other causes to do it for, but right now I’m keen on seeing money put in it for the future.” To contribute, visit or mail a cheque to Creston-Kootenay Foundation, P.O.

A matter of trust

Since the Creston and District Public Library board quietly terminated the employment of chief librarian Ann Day about six weeks ago, I have fielded more calls and questions about the situation than I can recall ever getting on a single topic. In April I was delivered the news personally by a board member, possibly because of my friendship with Day. Other library members and volunteers weren’t extended the same courtesy. They learned by word of mouth as word slowly spread. While I was shocked by the decision, I explained to everyone who asked that the library board, like all employers, is bound by law not to talk about personnel issues except in the very broadest sense. I also explained that I know a number of the directors personally (some as friends) and the rest by reputation, and I couldn’t imagine that they hadn’t acted in any other way than what they believed was in the best interests of the library. Day’s dismissal hit me hard because she is a good friend and has operated a library that I thoroughly enjoy visiting. I think she expected to be in her position until she retired and the thought that she might have to leave our community to find suitable employment did, and still does, make me ill. The overriding fact of the matter, though, is that I, like everyone else except board members and Day herself, have no direct knowledge of the issues that led directors to what must have been a gut-wrenching decision. After weeks of listening to angry people asking questions for which I

had no answers, I asked the board chair to provide a public comment. From another director, I received a terse two-sentence reply that we printed in the Advance. A while

Unless there are resignations from directors who don’t want to complete their terms in office, only about half of the elected directors — there are seven and an eighth is appointed by Creston town council — can be defeated in any one year.

Writer wants response from town

To the Editor: (Re: “Management making too much money”, May 3 Advance, page 7) I wish someone at town hall would respond to my previous letter and explain their justification for the extravagant salaries of the supervisory staff and keep in mind that many of us will

OpiniOn Line

not accept the excuse that they’re in line with other towns. They are irrelevant, as we don’t live there. Creston is a struggling border town and always will be, with its limited opportunity for jobs paying above the poverty level. We all could use a reality check with some foresight. Look at all the empty storefronts on Canyon Street. If the town goes to hell in a handbasket, will council be blaming something else or hold itself accountable? Half the employed taxpayers in the town’s limit earn one-quarter to onethird of the salaries of those at town hall. The business owners of retail outlets are struggling to stay afloat with their high overhead costs of rent, business licences,

being confronted by charity fundraiser beggars, taxation, inventory, employees’ wages (and their own), ever-increasing utility bills, insurance, paying to get their storefront windows washed because of those dirty, polluting 18-wheelers rolling down Canyon Street making ruts in the pavement, and having to absorb the loss by shoplifters. Hats off to these dedicated people to take on this challenge and make a community. How much longer does council think our population can sustain town hall’s Hollywood paychecks? Is it important enough that council address this matter before it becomes an election issue? Michael Bunn Creston

Breaking free from web of debt

Our federal debt stands at some $560 billion. We sit on an immense wealth of natural resources, like oil. The size of Canada is comparable to that of Europe or the U.S.A. Our population? A mere 32 million. Let me give you a few ideas how we came there and what to do about it. Our trade deficit with China in this new century alone is over $200 billion. They get our money, we get their junk. They buy our oilsands, we fill our dumps with broken Chinese products. We do have some weird trade with China, don't we? Look at Norway. It has about the same amount as our federal debt invested for future generations. How did they get the money? From selling their oil. They use some of their oil money for health care, education and other worthy social services. If our respective governments followed the Norway path, selling our oil, saving for future generations and at the same time improving our social safety

net, we would be in a much better financial situation. The other ill-conceived reality is that instead of issuing and regulating our own currency free of usury, for the benefit of citizens, we go to private banks that create money out of thin air and charge usury on

Consider This Vladimir Certik it. To make the matters worse, our banks got over $100 billion of taxpayers’ bailout money since 2008, which they used for booking up a “profit”, and giving billions for bonuses to their top echelon. Another part of the problem is that while individual taxpayers, especially the middle class, are milked to the tune of $200 billion, corporations pay about a

quarter of that sum while raking in billions of profits, enjoying subsidies or even bailouts. Today, virtually all provinces, municipalities, most individuals and many businesses have a debt of one CLOSED kind or another. Make no mistake: A borrower SATURDAY, is the servant to the lender. Once we were in great MAY 19 financial health. Not anymore. We are a large Enjoycountry by size, with plenty of natural resources. We used to Blossom Festival! be a great nation because of our tolerance and diplomacy. We had no debt. If someone tells you that Canada is (arguably) the best place on Earth, it is not our financial system or Ottawa politicians that fits the bill. I wonder, just wonder, if we have already passed that proverbial point of no return. Fellow citizens, what are your thoughts, ideas and solutions? Vladimir Certik believes that thinking outside the box and engaging fellow citizens may bring simple solutions to complex problems. The West Creston resident can be reached at 250-402-0055.

The art of becoming

When there are monumental moments in life, our culture(s) celebrates these milestones, rites of passage as defining moments — becoming. Ceremonies by all cultures mark the significance of events that we experience. We have banquets and bar mitzvahs, coronations and christenings, weddings and anniversaries, birthdays and graduations, namings and funerals. We give out promotions and awards, and for events we have opening and closing ceremonies. During my life, I have become many things. I have become a mother and grandmother. I became both an employee and an employer, but now I have become disabled. I became a walker and a volunteer. Of all the things I have become, the one that still surprises me the most was becoming an artist. When I moved up here in 2010, I did not consider myself an artist. I had been painting for a year but no one other than friends or family had ever seen my work. Artwalk changed all that. I had shown some of my work to Terry (a woman I met while walking), who works at Hi-Way Cabins. She asked me if I was going to go in the Artwalk that they had over the summer in the Creston Valley. Since I had only been here a month and did not think of myself as an artist, I had no idea what it was. She gave me the paper that had contact information and I went home and worked up the nerve to call. By making that call and registering with Artwalk, I had become an artist.

I look forward to participating in 2012’s Artwalk. It will be my third Artwalk, with my work being displayed in the windows of the Advance. Andrea Revoy, the new director of Artwalk, is committed to its becoming a must see experience for Creston Valley residents as well as visitors to the region.

A Cultural Perspective Lori Wikdahl

Some changes are in the wind for the Artwalk opening ceremonies. As always, there are two openings for Artwalk, one for the Creston Valley and one for the East Shore. The East Shore opening is June 23 and the Creston Valley opening is the following Saturday, June 30. The East Shore opening on June 23 will be held in conjunction with the second annual Crawford Bay Paint-AThon. Dan Silakiewicz and Leah Wilson want to give everyone an opportunity to experience the event and interact with the artists. There will be a gallery in the front room of the Crawford Bay Hall showcasing the participants of the East Shore Artwalk. Both the paint-athon and the art gallery will be open to the public from 2-6 p.m., with gourmet

pizza at 5:30 p.m. and an auction of the paint-a-thon creations at 6:30. A ticket can be purchased if you wish to participate in the auction. The June 30 Creston Valley opening will be held in Spirit of Creston Square from 2-5 p.m. Along with an exhibition and sale of art by Artwalk participants, there will also be an art creation station for children with their art going on display. Howlin’ Dan will provide great music to listen to. Body art in the form of temporary tattoos by Val Van Der Poel and face painting by me will be available for everyone. There will even be cupcakes! Brochures for ArtWalk that list the various venues and their artists will be available, which includes a map to make your walk or tour as simple and pleasant as possible. You will be able to enjoy and purchase art at any of the 27 venues that comprise 2012’s Artwalk. I walk through town every day. During the summer, I love to go into the various venues in town to admire the work of the local artists. I’m amazed at how great the variety of art is and how talented the local artist community is. I am always inspired by it — and honored to be a part of it. Whatever your taste, Artwalk is sure to entice you and whatever your pocketbook, you’ll find something just right on your Artwalk or studio tour. There is a Mexican proverb that says, “Works, and not words, are the proof of love.” Come out and see the proof of how much we love our art. Lori Wikdahl is a Creston Valley artist. 7

Top 20 trees to be featured in garden tour

Another evening disappears into the Kootenay darkness. I’ve just taken a short walk through the arboretum to pick out the top 20 trees worth mentioning for the folks taking the upcoming Creston Valley

this maple lies a collection of four large linden trees. Their little yellow flowers are much prized by the honeybees. Heading south from the entranceway, a small ginkgo tree awaits. They are very slow growing, so to see the best specimen ginkgo, have a peek at the one up at the house off the nursery parking lot. It is tucked in behind a green- and yellow-leaved maple and is thought to be 50 years old. Beside the smaller ginkgo tree in the garden is a beautiful “Toba” (short for Manitoba) hawthorn Evan Davies tree with clear pink blooms. Behind it a rare dawn redwood garden tour (see the press release on page tree. While the Ginkgo tree is rare enough 14). I was making a better list. At about in itself as it is a single species existing 110 species of trees — no shrubs this time unchanged for perhaps 150 million years, — it got too dark to read. And there was a the dawn redwood tree (near extinction) strange noise coming from the wilder part was discovered growing in China in of the garden, so I left. 1941. Like a larch, it drops its needles At the front of the gardens, the brilliant every fall. It is like a very primitive form yellow foliage of the Princeton gold maple of the California redwoods and giant lights up the entranceway. To the east of sequoias.

Nursery Notes

Across the creek on the left hand side you can find a beautiful young Spanish fir tree. Further up the lane you will see a specimen katsura tree under planted with a star magnolia. Across the path lies a Mongolian walnut. You will need a vise to open these nuts. Often the case as you increase the hardiness of something, the seed becomes less attractive as a food source. Beside this tree there are two sugar maples in close proximity, with beautiful orange fall colour and the source of Canadian maple syrup. Heading up a small set of stairs and along the path there lies a Leopold maple. The leaves are cream, pink and green, mottled as if the tree had some form of virus. They originate from Belgium and were named after King Leopold, I presume. Nearby are some of the many species of pines found in the gardens — close to 20 different kinds from all over the world. Head back in the direction of the main part of the arboretum for some really neat


trees. A small specimen Chinese paperbark maple with peeling cinnamoncoloured bark can be found. Nearby is a real eye catcher, the tri-colour beech, along with a rainbow dogwood and an ironwood tree. Continuing up the hill there is a nicely shaped oak leaf mountain ash, very symmetrical with silver/greycoloured, oak-shaped leaves. There are two forms of weeping beech trees, one green and large and the other purple and compact. A golden catalpa tree, a sourwood tree with brilliant fall colour and a Japanese pagoda tree round out the top 20, along with a couple more favorites of mine, the Kentucky coffee tree, the tulip tree and the London plane tree. There is a lot more to explore back here including a collection of rhododendrons, vibernums and many more kinds of unusual trees and shrubs. If you have the time to check out this year’s garden tour, I think you would be pleasantly surprised. Hoping for some sunshine… Evan Davies owns Beltane Nursery at 2915 Highway 3 in Erickson.

The two primary vows or commitments of the Zen path are the refuge vow: taking refuge in the teachers, in the teachings themselves and in the community of people who are training to live by the teachings. The other vow we take is called the bodhisattva vow. In it, we vow to help all beings free themselves from suffering. More simply, the two primary commitments one makes on the Zen path are to work on ourselves and to work for the happiness of others. These two vows provide fundamental guidelines for how to approach our spiritual practice and bring them into daily life. One can take the refuge and bodhisattva vows in a formal ceremony, but the main commitment takes place in the heart. A formal ceremony is simply an acknowledgement of the pledge that we have already made. Any vow is nothing other than a promise that we make to ourselves. It is a statement of an intention to live by a set of principles that are good for us and good for others. When you make the refuge vow, you promise to honor and respect the teachers who have kept the teaching fresh and who have transmitted them from the historical Buddha who lived in 400 BC, through the teachers in ancient China, medieval Japan and right to Canadian teachers in the present day. Then you promise to practice these teachings in all situations. Finally, you vow to make an effort to create and maintain harmony in your spiritual community. See VOWS, page 13

East Shore 11

Tipi Camp opening for 25th summer BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

In 1988, the Tipi Camp Nature Retreat opened at the tip of Pilot Peninsula, offering a peaceful getaway from everyday life. Now in its 25th season, the camp on Kootenay Lake is still going strong, and shows no sign of stopping. “I’m delighted,” said Peter Duryea, a founder of the Guiding Hands Recreation Society, which runs the camp. “It says to me that yes, it’s a good idea, yes, there is a need and yes, people are picking up on it.” For those who have ever wondered what the camp is like, its annual open tipis day will be held on June 24, when visitors can enjoy a potluck lunch. Boats will leave the East Shore’s Lakeview Store from 10 a.m.noon, then return after 2 p.m. Visitors are guaranteed to grasp the camp’s purpose — helping others to reconnect with nature. “For me, that seems to be what humanity has forgotten,” said Duryea. “The bot-

tom line in decision making is economic — we’ve lost touch with our realities.” Those realities, from living off the land to simply breathing fresh air, were the basis of the camp’s creation. Duryea, a Hollywood actor in the 1960s and 1970s (and himself the son of an actor), moved to the Kootenays for a quieter lifestyle and soon found himself involved in the exact opposite. “I was embroiled in a struggle between the community and forestry,” said Duryea. “My life turned into a battlefield. … I discovered I was the other pole in the struggle, and looked for something positive. I wanted to use the land in a way that wasn’t exploitive.” With the donation of land from Alice Bruce, who owns 200 acres on Pilot Peninsula, and with the help of local individuals and businesses, the project got off the ground, although it took eight years for the camp to sustain itself financially. “[Bruce] liked what we were doing— she was kind of a rebel herself,” said

Duryea. “It grew very organically with a lot of community support from every sector. If you stick around long enough, neat things can happen.” And the 72-year-old has stuck around long enough to hand the reins over to Sandra Bernier, who organizes volunteers, writes grants and oversees the camp’s day-to-day operations. “It’s a big job,” said Bernier, who grew up in Toronto and moved to the Kootenays in 1999. “I have tremendous respect for Peter and what he’s accomplished. It’s such a blessing to me to follow him and carry out the delivery of programs and have the place open for people to come.” Each summer the Tipi Camp has about 300 visitors, including kids and teens in two WISE (Wilderness Immersion for Self-Esteem) programs and youth 17-21 in YA! for young adults. The programs started with one kids’ camp and one teen camp each season, then expanded to two, and then added the young adult

For the second year, the Guiding Hands Recreation Society (GHRS) will host YA!, a weeklong program for 17- to 21-year-olds. Held at the Tipi Camp Nature Retreat on Pilot Peninsula, the 11-day wilderness experience, with in-camp and mountain adventure segments, allows youth to discover themselves by connecting with nature and their elders.

“The activities are intended to stimulate them physically, mentally and spiritually, and integration allows them to sink into the consciousness,” said Jonathan Taylor. The 70-year-old SelfDesign High teacher from Nelson, who has a PhD in marine biology, began volunteering at the Tipi Camp after visiting on open tipis day three years ago. He immediately appreciated the physical setting of the camp, the high regard for First Nations and the deep connection to wil-

derness that it encouraged. The YA! program, which gives credit to SelfDesign High students, grew out of the kid and teen program that had been offered for many years, and offers young adults a means to discover who they really are. “Absorbing the power from wilderness, with supportive mentoring from the staff and elders, each person receives the necessary self-awareness, confidence, inspiration and passion to fan the flame of personal leadership in their field of choice,” said a GHRS press release. Each day usually has a specific developmental focus, and campers are led through a series of activities, discussion and integration. Topics range from fire to diversity to gratitude. With the latter, for example, Taylor said, “We point out how the natural community is a web of giving and taking. … The hole a woodpecker made in a tree can become home to a starling or squirrel.” Older teens are already more open to learning about themselves and have a stronger awareness of others. “We’re trying to get young teens to settle, hold hands and say grace, and the older ones are bargaining to see who gets to say grace,” Taylor said. And when they can set aside the technology that has become an integral part of everyday life, they are able to slow down and worry less. “Don’t think about the goal, think about the next step,” Taylor said. “By that means, we can help each other. On the other side is not disaster, but the other side.”Open 7 Days a Week Volunteering taught him a thing 11 am has to 5pm or two, as well. Hikers will often offer to help Taylor — the self-proclaimed “old guy” his pack, something he was (THE PINK—with HOUSE 1KM NORTH OF THE GLASS HOUSE) initially reluctant to allow. “I can’t offer eldership such as it is if I don’t let them help me,” he said. It all adds up to an experience that Taylor isn’t ready to give up any time soon. “I have an opportunity to work with young people in a program just down the road from where I live on the world’s most beautiful lake,” said Taylor. “What’s a guy to do?” For more information on YA! or the Tipi Camp, visit

camp last year. (See story below.) “Kids get hooked,” said Bernier. “That’s how the young adult program came to be. Sixteen-year-olds would realize it was their last year after coming to camp since they were nine. They couldn’t see the summer without it. … It’s amazing to see what an impact the WISE program has on kids. It permeates. It flows into them.” None of the camp’s programs could be accomplished without 50-60 volunteers each summer nor the community support that has been maintained from the beginning. “I have a lot of really skilled willing people who love the camp and help however they can,” said Bernier. “The support for it really touches me. People can relate because they see what it’s worth.” That recognition makes the hard work worth it, as Bernier continues to channel Duryea’s vision. “I can’t think of a better cause or a more noble line of work,” Bernier said. “It nourishes my soul.” Boswell, BC • 250-223-8270/71 • 250-354-4370

Local teens run first half marathon BY CHRIS BRAUER

They’ve battled rain and snow and blistering heat. They’ve battled snakes and dogs and moose and animals in between. They’ve battled naysayers who told them they shouldn’t or couldn’t. They’ve battled self-doubt and injury and exhaustion. But on May 28, three Prince Charles Secondary School students toed the starting line at the 48th annual Calgary Half Marathon with over 5,000 other long-distance runners. As they waited

patiently for the race to begin, they all knew, in their hyper-excited state, that the past nine months of training was all worth it. It had all come down to this. Back in September, as the school year began, Ada Browne (aged 14), Rylee Christenson (aged 16) and Ernst Kass (aged 16) never imagined they could run a half-marathon. At the time, running five or six kilometers for the high school cross-country team seemed arduous. And yet, little by little, they began to run further and feel stronger than ever before. They learned that with a little perseverance and with a lot of hard work a seemingly impossible goal was actually attainable. They learned that sometimes if we devote ourselves to an ideal we become something else entirely. Ada, Rylee and Ernst became, over the course of a school year, amazing long-distance runners and, without realizing it, students of life. They learned about loneliness and battling the self. They learned about determination and goal setting. They learned how to calm the body and mind into meditative state. And so, after a restless sleep and a quick

breakfast, nine months of training came to an epic conclusion. And as the chilly morning threatened to rain, the starting gun suddenly fired. All the hill work and speed work and countless bowls of pasta — all the sore legs, blistered toes and salt-crusted skin — came down to this very moment. The 21.1-kilometre course wove along the river, up and under bridges, through downtown, around quiet neighbourhoods, past cheering crowds and finally returned to the stampede grounds where all three runners crossed the glorious finish line. All three runners beat their estimated time and then, when the official chip times were posted, it was discovered that Rylee had won a bronze medal in her category, women under the age of 20. It has been my absolute pleasure to coach and run with Ada (2:14:48), Rylee (1:41:55) and Ernst (1:43:45). I hope they are as proud of themselves as I am of them. I know their friends and family certainly are. And I know they will continue to push themselves and continue to do great things both in long-distance running and in life.

Concert to benefit memorial fund SUBMITTED

The Hawreschuk family would like to invite everyone to come to An Evening of Praise, a benefit concert for the John Ryckman Memorial Fund and the Christian Development Centre, at the Snoring Sasquatch on June 23. The Hawreschuks came to Creston in 2003 and have worked in and around the community since that time. This family group includes dad and mom Rick and Nancy and kids Joel, Taylor and Rikki. They are a musically inclined bunch that has performed individually at various functions and venues throughout the Creston Valley over the years, and recently as a group, mostly noted for their musical participation within the Christian community. They would like to take this opportunity to share their talents while helping others. The John Ryckman Memorial Fund was established this spring by his immediate family members shortly after Ryckman’s sudden passing. It exists to financially support and encourage, at the family’s

discretion, those with a heart for missions who are willing to go and share the love of God and the life-changing message of Jesus Christ with others worldwide.

Donations to the fund can be made at any time through Creston Baptist Church, and will be receipted accordingly. The Christian Development Centre opened at the corner of 16th Avenue and Canyon Street (across from 7-Eleven) in the spring of 2011. It started from the vision of a long time resident family who has a deep desire to serve their community. Richard and Cheryl Rosenberger have dedicated their lives to serving Christ and feel a strong need in our community to provide an open door for anyone and everyone to feel welcome. By design, the development centre has Submitted photo numerous opportunities (Clockwise from top left) Nancy, Rick, Taylor, for all walks of life, young and those once Rikki and Joel Hawreschuk. young can chose from Ryckman had a heart for several ongoing group programs people and, within the year and individual sessions as well prior to his passing, had a as a small library and soon to be growing urgency to be able to completed coffee shop.

Vows must be part of daily life

From page 8 On an inner level, you make a commitment to awaken from the conditioning of your past, to live the teachings and to connect with others who have taken the same vow. With the bodhisattva vow, you dedicate your life to the welfare of all beings. You make a commitment to develop the wisdom, compassion, and skillful means to be of real benefit to the world. You make a commitment to, as best you can, teach others the practices that have eased your own suffering and brought happiness into your own life. Zen practitioners don’t take many vows, but when we do, we take them seriously. To observe these two vows, it is not enough to go to a ceremony, celebrate our intention and then forget about them. These vows need to be woven into the fabric of daily life. To remind us of that, we take these vows every day after Zen meditation. Finding stillness by sitting on the meditation cushion is just the beginning of spiritual practice. Daily vows help place everything we do in the context of these two simple, but profound, promises to live a life that is based in spiritual values — that is, a life that is focused on working on oneself and helping others. Today’s practice : What would change if you took seriously the two principles of working on yourself and helping others as the measure of your actions? How committed are you to yourself or to others? This column is a long series of short essays exploring the meaning of the Lojong Slogans. It is inspired by the work of Judy Lief. Kuya Minogue is the resident teacher at Creston’s ZenWords Zen Centre. For more information, she can be reached at 250-428-3390.

Great gift ideas for Dad

Father’s Day is right around the corner and that means many children, spouses and other family members will be scrambling to locate the perfect gifts for the men in their lives. Put away those coupons for neckties and remote control caddies. There’s a good chance Dad wants something a little less cliche and more in tune with his interests. If you think carefully about gift ideas, there’s bound to be something that will be a perfect fit. Sports If Dad follows a particular team or sport, gifts inspired by his love of a favorite team are a surefire bet for success. Team jersies, game memorabilia, tickets to the next at-home game, or an expanded satellite dish or cable TV sports programming package are some gift ideas that will coordinate with a sports theme. Some dads also may be content to simply hit the links or spend a few hours at the batting cages. Personalized Gifts Personalized gifts can show that special man in your life that you care about him in a special way. Instead of a run-of-the-mill item pulled off a store shelf, a personalized gift can feature a name, date or sentiment right on the gift itself. Think about giving Dad a personalized plaque that designates his work area in the garage or a pocket lighter or photo frame engraved with a special message or his name. An embroidered bath robe, or a golf bag embroidered with his initials may also be a special treat. Fit for Foodies As the adage goes, “The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.” Take advantage of these words of wisdom by gifting your Dad with food or culinary-themed items. Dad may be an amateur chef and will enjoy a cookbook by his favorite Food Network(TM) personality. Or he may have a restaurant he insists on going to all the time, so guaranteeing a gift card to said restaurant will be a hit. If Dad appreciates not only the taste,

but also the culture of food, plan a tour of food shops in the area or go on a wine- and cheese-tasting adventure. Gear Heads Some dads get revved up about automotive gifts, especially if they spend the weekends pampering their prized cars or trucks. If he tends to have a wrench in hand and head under the hood, treat your father to some new supplies for his automotive pursuits. Quality car waxes and upholstery cleaners are always in demand. Or give him a gift certificate to his favorite hand-wash, auto-detailing center. Gas station gift cards or a new ratchet set are other good auto gift ideas. Techies Some dads get excited about the latest tablets or smartphones. They may keep abreast of virus-detection software or think the technological gadgets sold in those speciality magazines and mall stores are must-haves. Chances are if you spend enough time with Dad you know just what he likes to dabble in, and you can get him an electronic device he’ll find invaluable. Although it may seem difficult on the surface to find a gift for Dad that he truly will enjoy and use, all it takes is a close examination of his likes to find something appropriate. TF126224

Still cooking after three decades

Who: Dennis Munro What: Chef and restaurant owner/ manager Where: Creston Golf Club restaurant and Broaster House When: Since 1980 Why: “I’m stupid, I guess!”


With 32 years of experience in restaurants around the Kootenays, Dennis Munro is as well known as, well, his caesar salad. “That’s the first thing people usu-

ally mention when they talk about my food,” he admits. “Caesar salad and steaks and roasts.” Munro was born and raised in Vancouver, but it was in Calgary as a young man that he began to develop his skills in the kitchen. “It started at home on Sunday nights — friends would arrive and we would sort of have a potluck dinner. I would work in the kitchen, putting dishes together.” He left Calgary, where he had been in sales — waterbeds and cars — and headed for Kaslo in 1980. His first job was cooking breakfast at the Treehouse Restaurant, which still remains a Kootenay icon today. “It was the first job I could find,” he said. And he hasn’t been away from the restaurant and bar business since. After being laid off from the Treehouse, Munro moved over to the Mariner Inn, where he worked as a bartender, cook and did night security, a task that provided him with a room in the hotel. “Then I met Terry Jones (of Jones Boys Marina fame) and he said he was opening JB’s Pub in Woodbury, at the

marina. That was the first time I actually had control, producing my first full menu, hiring staff and working long, really long, days. “If you aren’t prepared to put in 70-hour weeks you shouldn’t even think about getting into this business. But I guess it’s in my blood. My wife, Debbie, doesn’t understand why I do it, but she’s always been a great support.” In the 1985 he ventured back to Vancouver to open a cafeteria-style restaurant downtown, in time for Expo 86. A year later, Jones called to put another bug in Munro’s ear. He was purchasing Mountain Shores Resort on Highway 3A and asked Dennis to open a restaurant there. Soon he was back in the Kootenays, building a lounge and renovating the kitchen. It was a short-lived experience. Mountain Shores went into receivership in 1988 and the restaurant’s lease wasn’t registered. Munro sold his equipment to the receiver and bought Sirdar Pub. “The first thing I did was buy a Lorne Eckersley photo shuttle bus — I was way ahead of the Dennis Munro manages the Creston Golf Club restaurant and owns curve on that one,” he said. the Broaster House.

ICE CREAM and nostalgia on the Happy Trails menu By BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor


Brian Lawrence photo

Michele Staggs shows off a tasty treat from her new shop, Happy Trails. To read the 2009 story on her other business, Buffalo Trails, which is still going strong, visit

here’s a new way to beat the heat downtown this summer — a treat from Happy Trails is sure to deliver a cooling wave of relief on even the hottest day. The ice cream shop opened just before the May long weekend, and in addition to ice cream treats, offers a hint of nostalgia, with posters of 1950s icons Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe keeping an eye over the shop. “We did grow up loving Elvis and Marilyn and the Big Bopper and the whole Happy Days scene,” said Michele Staggs, who owns the shop and its companion, Buffalo Trails Coffee House, next door. “And the whole ’50s vibe goes hand-in-hand with ice cream.” The icons’ presence fits in well with the décor, which is primarily red and white, with a black and white-checked floor. The seating is also red, with a red bench on one wall and two red stools evoking memories of Staggs’ childhood. “There was a restaurant in my hometown with a whole row of them along the lunch counter,” she said. The mother of three, who also runs Duck Lake Bison Farm with her husband, Chad, came to Creston about 10 years ago, having been born and raised in Alberta, where she owned a convenience store. Happy Trails’ home at 1215 Canyon Street is conveniently beside Buffalo Trails, which Staggs opened in December 2008. “I really like the corner location,” said Staggs. “It seems like the perfect place for an ice cream shop — a fun little place to come in the summer.” As for the product, it was an easy choice. Happy Trails carries 16 fla-

vours from Foothills Creamery, including one sugar-free flavour and one sorbet (dairy-free). “Everyone loves ice cream,” she said. “Also, I wanted to do something incorporating the other store, so we have gourmet ice cream sandwiches — you come in and pick the cookies, which we also sell next door, and the ice cream that goes inside.” The most popular flavours are maple walnut and New York cherry cheesecake, selected from the several dozen available from Foothills, and one lady, Staggs said, comes in regularly for the Shirley Temple flavour. It all comes in regular cones, waffle cones (hand-dipped in chocolate and nuts or sprinkles) or pretzel cones, with complimentary sprinkles, and may even be used in a float made with cola, root beer, or orange or grape soda. There’s also the Sundae Smash, unique to Happy Trails, which consists of two layers of ice cream “smashed” into three respective toppings. And if that’s not enough, all-natural lemonade, salt water taffy, retro candy and popcorn are also on the menu. Barely a month after Happy Trails opened, Staggs already has regular customers of all ages, and while she enjoys them all, she’s thrilled to see the reactions of youngsters. “I think it’s cute that kids are so excited about it,” she said. Shortly after the shop opened, Staggs was surprised when a child pointed at her downtown and said, “Mom, that’s the ice cream lady!” And another said what ice cream lovers all over Creston are hoping. “This one little girl came right up to my leg, looked at me with these big eyes and said, ‘I hope all the success with your business.’ ”

Learning new things keeps chef going after 30 years

From page 15 For years, a 15-seat Dodge Maxivan shuttled Sirdar Pub patrons back and forth from Creston. His good friend, Tom Browne, backed him by putting in dining loft as an addition to the pub. What once was a pub that offered only a few food items became known for its menu and atmosphere. The view from the loft, overlooking the lake,

was nothing to sneeze at, either. Munro owned and operated the pub for 13 years, but he began managing the Creston Golf Club restaurant in 1996, too, after a sale of the pub fell through. “I was committed to running the golf course restaurant that spring, so I had to run it and the pub at the same time,” he says. Three years later, the chance to create a fine dining establishment

beckoned, and he took on the lease of what had been operating as Kelly O’Brien’s on Canyon Street. And Munro’s was born. “Fine dining — that was my goal, and it was a learning curve,” he laughs. The restaurant was successful during the tourist season but it was a tough go in the winter. Opportunity knocked again during a Sysco Canada (food distributor) golf tournament. “I met the general manager of the Prestige Inn in Cranbrook and he said the food and beverage operation was for sale.” In 2004, he took over the restaurant and pub in Cranbrook for a six-year run. Then, as if that and keeping Munro’s running in Creston wasn’t enough of a challenge, he added the restaurants in the Nelson and Rossland Prestige Inns to his portfolio. How did he manage all that? “I’m still not sure,” he smiles. “You just put your head down and keep going. And it helps to be stupid!” In 2009, the bottom dropped out of the hospitality business and he got out of the restaurant industry for a while. “I took a year off and I didn’t think I was going to go back into the business,” he recalls. “But I couldn’t think of any-

thing else I’d rather do.” Munro takes a moment to think about what really keeps him going in an industry that can consume one’s life. “I love the challenge of a big event,” he says. “Seeing if you can pull it off and see people leaving happy at the end — it doesn’t get any better than that.” He thinks back to running the food service for the second Kokanee Summit, and having to serve 11,000 meals in five hours. “We lost our electrical power right before we started,” he says. A mad scramble led to a rewiring project, all while guests began to get more and more hungry. “We were in the weeds for sure,” he laughs. “We ended up with nine food lines with about a hundred people in each one. But we got it done!” In the last few years, Munro settled into a routine, running the golf course operation for about eight months a year, until once again came that familiar rap-rap-rap sound of opportunity knocking. “Tyler Hancock (a real estate agent) mentioned that Joan and Robin (Morris) were wanting to retire after 35 years of running the Broaster House,” he says. “We found a way to make a

deal that benefits both sides in the long term.” Getting involved with yet another business was made easier when he convinced his former chef and manager at Munro’s to become a partner in the Broaster House. “Brad Sutherland was my ace in the hole. I know what he’s capable of and he’s one of the few people I would have considered.” “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it,” is how Munro explains his approach to his latest venture. “People have grown up with Robin and Joan’s Broaster House — customers’ sons and daughters are now eating there. You can’t change it.” The constant among the many changes over Munro’s career in restaurants and pubs has been his wife, Debbie. “You have to have support from your spouse to survive in this business,” he says. “Debbie has been with me for seven moves and supported every one.” As for his well-earned reputation? “I hope people know they are getting home-made food and that they get flavours they don’t get anywhere else, “ he says. “And, after 30 years, hardly a day goes by that I don’t learn something — that’s what keeps me going.”

Singers competing for regional title KOOTENAYS’ BEST SINGER

The local Kootenays’ Best Singer contests are all finished and all that’s left is the June 23 final showdown between 14 singers from seven different communities to determine who the Kootenays’ best singer for 2012 will be. February’s first-place winner Matt Hansen and the second-place duo of Jesse Dumas and Jairus Stonehoue will represent Creston in the finals. Contest producer Vern Gorham, has been on the road for most of April and May finishing up the final local singing contests in preparation of the finals. “The talent I’ve seen in the Kootenays has been absolutely amazing,” said Gorham. “The finals will be a night to remember, and there are 14 excellent singers who each have the opportunity of being crowned the Kootenays’ best singer for 2012.” The prize for winning the competition, beside having their name associated with being the Kootenays’ best singer for the following year, is a package worth approximately $5,000 that includes $1,000 cash, recording studio time to record an original

number, and a music video of the winner singing the original song. The final contest will take place in Cranbrook at the Cranbrook Alliance Church at 1200 Kootenay St. N.. “The seating capacity of the church is over 1000, and the acoustics are amazing,” Gorham said. Gorham hopes that many people from outside Cranbrook will venture over there to support their local singer as they compete against a very capable group of outstanding singers. Hansen, Dumas and Stonehouse will compete against Cecilie Regenberg and Gary Smith (Grand Forks), Tessa Van Der Holt and Marlea Lander (Nelson), Jessica Hyson and Kenny Harris (Rossland), Colin Lindgren and Katie Loughlin (Trail), Trena Spears and Connor Parnall (Cranbrook) and Victoria Walker and Devin Fikis (Kimberley). Tickets will be on sale in Cranbrook at Lotus Books and Pages Books, and in Creston at Black Bear Books.

On June 21 and 22, Audrey Johnson and Sophia Smith will present their fifth annual Strings Attached concert in the acoustically perfect Creston Zendo. With Johnson on keyboard and Smith on cello, the duo, which has been collaborating for seven years, will present an evening of gentle works by Bach, Handel, Brahms, Strauss, Elgar, De Falla and Schuman, along with selections from Rolf Lovland’s Secret Garden collection. The partnership of cello and piano allows a variety of repertoire, from Baroque to present day popular melodies arranged by the Audrey and Sophia. Strings Attached has been presented at Prince Charles Theatre, but this year Johnson and Smith are excited about taking advantage of the Creston Zendo’s intimate atmosphere and excellent acoustics. This is their second Crescendo in the Zendo. Smith, a Creston-based chiropractor, took up the cello in 2000 and discovered a passion for the instrument the first time she drew her bow across the strings.

Insect Repellants With the arrival of nicer weather, many of us are eager to spend time outdoors. Almost all of us are less than happy to see the return of the mosquito along with the return of summer. Canada is well represented in the mosquito world. There are approximately 82 different species found in the wild. Female mosquitoes of most of these species need to feed on blood in order to develop eggs. If a female mosquito lives long enough to feed on blood more than once, she is capable of transmitting blood borne diseases. According to the World Health Organization, there are only two such viruses known to be transmitted this way in Canada (St. Louis Encephalitis and West Nile Virus). There are four principle strategies employed in dealing with mosquitoes. They are elimination, avoidance, barriers and repellants. The primary method is to eliminate mosquito breeding grounds around your home. Reduce standing water (such as that found in birdbaths and ditches). Secondly avoid contact with mosquitoes by ensuring that screens are up and in good repair and by remaining indoors at dawn and dusk when mosquitoes are most active. Thirdly, make use of physical barriers such as mosquito nets. If you must be outdoors be sure to wear long sleeves and pants to minimize exposed skin. In spite of the other ways of dealing with mosquitoes, most people rely on insect repellants as their primary method of dealing with mosquitoes. Insect repellants discourage mosquitoes from landing on victims. Researchers believe that these compounds mask the signals (carbon dioxide and lactic acid) that allow mosquitoes to locate their prey. It has been demonstrated that both pregnancy and alcohol consumption make one more attractive to mosquitoes. All insect repellants sold in Canada are regulated by Health Canada’s Pest management Regulatory Agency and must under a risk analysis and a re-evaluation every 15 years in order to ensure that they meet currents standards in Canada. Currently 4 ingredients have met the standards established by Health Canada.

Perhaps the most familiar insect repellant is DEET. After application to the skin, DEET slowly evaporates. The duration of DEET is related to the concentration. At 35% the protective effects of DEET plateau. Occasionally DEET may cause dermatitis or allergic reactions. DEET can cause neurotoxicity. There have been 43 cases of neurotoxicity reported in the last 50 years and the majority of these were the result of drinking DEET. DEET can also damage certain plastics as well as spandex and rayon. The most familiar alternative to DEET is Citronella. Citronella is an oil derived from the stem and leaves of Cymbogon grasses. This oil evaporates very quickly when applied to the skin. This results in a very short duration of actions-less than 30 minutes). In addition, oil of Citronella can be a potent skin sensitizer and may cause rashes or even allergic reactions. Another natural alternative to DEET is soybean oil in a 2% preparation. Studies have shown soybean oil preparation to work as well or better than lower concentrations of DEET. It has low toxicity and has not been shown to irritate the skin. The final ingredient approved in Canada is known as PMD. PMD is the active compound in lemon eucalyptus oil. A few studies have compared PMD to DEET. The results of these studies suggest that at equal concentrations PMD is half as effective as DEET. PMD has been noted to cause eye irritation and rarely skin irritation. Another summer is upon us and with a little prevention and an insect repellant, we can all have a more enjoyable summer.

ing to recover a submerged vehicle in the Goat River near Creston. The Queenston School gym committee and Winnipeg school division jointly announced Friday that the facility, expected to open in September, will honour Sweatman. “Sheilah grew up in River Heights and was an outstanding student, athlete, artist and community volunteer dedicated to serving others,” said Colleen McFadden, chair of the gym committee. “Naming the gym in Sheilah’s honour will provide our students and young people with inspirational messages of community service and living life to the fullest.” Queenston School was built in 1931 but lacks adequate gym space. The new 5,150 square foot gym will serve both student and community needs. Sweatman’s father, Wynn, said the family was moved by the tribute. “We are very pleased that Sheilah has been recognized in this way,” he said. “She was a fabulous young lady, strong in mind and spirit.” He added his daughter was a “wonderful athlete, amazing snow boarder, cyclist,

hiker, swimmer and dog sledder.” A graduate of the University of Manitoba, Sweatman was also an accomplished artist. She donated her best work, Finding Me, made out of 256,000 puzzle pieces, to the C h i l d re n ’ s Hospital Foundation. The gym naming is the latest of several posthumous honours: Central Okanagan Search and Rescue named its new jet boat after Sweatman last summer, and a cairn is expected to be constructed in her memory at the North Shore hall out of stones contributed from each of the province’s search and rescue groups. A coroner’s inquest into her death is now scheduled to run Nov. 19-23 at the Nelson courthouse. “The November dates are the earliest available in which courtroom space is available and all participants foresee they can attend,” the BC Coroners Service said in a statement. The inquest was originally scheduled for this month, but was delayed “to ensure availability of all required witnesses as well as counsel for parties with standing.” The hearing will be presided over by regional coroner Mark

Coleman and a five-member jury. On his website, Vancouver lawyer Cameron Ward says he has been counsel for the Sweatman family since October 2011, when the inquest was first announced. He said her death occurred during filming of the reality show Callout: Search and Rescue, and the tragedy was captured on video. “Lawyers from the Ministry of Justice attended a pre-inquest hearing on May 22, but gave no indication that an adjournment was being contemplated by anyone,” he wrote. “We had no opportunity to make any submissions on behalf of the family before receiving notice of the adjournment.” The delay came as an “unwelcome surprise” to Sweatman’s parents and siblings, who had arranged to travel to Nelson from Winnipeg, Belgium, Calgary and Vancouver, he added. “The BC Coroners Service and the coroner apparently did not consider the family’s interests before postponing the hearing.” WorkSafe BC and Emergency Management BC are also conducting their own investigations.
