ARNE PETRYSHEN Rossland News Editor

Is there a hunger for higher internet speeds in Rossland? It certainly seemed like it in council Monday, judging from the positive remarks that four members of the public, each involved in online business, told council. The support came as the Columbia Basin Broadband

bank local nelsoncu.com/banklocal

Corporation (CBBC) gave a presentation to council on the benefits of opting into the Columbia Basin Trust initiative to offer fibre optic broadband options to the basin. Mark Halwa, from the CBBC, explained that there was a reason that internet in regions such as this lag behind the population centres and it comes down to where it is most logical for companies like Shaw and Telus to invest.

The rate of return is too low in places like Rossland and so the internet speeds will always lag behind. “We can, through some of the fibre that we own, and buying connection and working in partnership with Shaw and Telus, bring better connectivity to what we would call world class, which would be about 100 mb/s access. Halwa said that at the moment, as a reference, most

By banking locally with our credit union, you ensure a vibrant community and a dynamic local economy. Did you know that at Nelson & District Credit Union we offer rates and services as good as our competitors, plus...we hire locally, invest locally and make decisions locally while they don’t!

Rossland homes operate at 2 to 4 mb. “Our connection would be 100 mb and we can increase that over time,� he said, adding that the most expensive part is the feeder fibre, the long haul lines that connect communities. CBBC already owns some 80 km of fibre in the basin. “That fundamental layer is the most expensive layer and we already have about 80, 85 km of that and we’re looking to

do various things and get more, for Columbia Basin Communities.� he said. The CBBC would take care of that, as well as the advanced equipment to manage the network. They plan on giving open access to this tool to all parties, including Shaw and Telus. “When we take the most expensive layers and let others use them, then it becomes a little more cost effective,� Halwa See City on P. 3

City hears broadband details continued from P. 1 said. The CBBC service would cost the city 1,250 a month and includes compliance with CRTC requirements, 100 mb connection, video conferencing unit, use of network management equipment and “all the internet you could possibly use.” The least costs option is to connect only the city office. From there the city could extend to other municipal buildings, the school and then residents. Amber Hayes spoke to council about welcoming the CBBC. “I’m a virtual worker, so I use the internet and all of its large infrastructure to do that,” Hayes said, adding that there are now over 60 per cent of information technology workers making over $70,000 year who have the ability to chose to live wherever they want, with the only requirement being a fast, consistent internet connection. She argued Rossland would be a perfect candidate with that addition. “I just wanted to come here and voice my anticipation and pleasure at seeing opportunities that are coming forward to the Columbia Basin,” she said. Brian Fry, has lived in Rossland since 1964, other than 12 years where he was out in Vancouver and California to start his technology career. “What I wanted to say today is that I’ve had a great opportunity living in Rossland and I managed to start a company in 2001 that has now become Canada’s largest cloud

Mark Halwa, from the Columbia Basin Broadband Corporation presented the benefits that could come from faster fibre optic broadband in Rossland. service provider,” Fry explained. He said companies are relying more and more heavily on cloud-based services, which in turn rely on broadband and so what the the CBBC is offering is an incredible opportunity for Rossland to get modernized internet at a reasonable price. “If these employers don’t have access (to the cloud) then they are not going to bring that business to your community,” “The internet that we have now is not broadband, it’s a pretty good service, but it’s

not going to stand the test of time,” he said, as services are already pushed to the limits with bandwidth heavy services like Netflix and bittorent downloads. He said it is a very important topic that should be taken seriously. Lisa Wegner said it would give her the ability to work out of her home. “It’s far more beneficial to be proactive than reactive,” she said. Rossland council has asked city staff to prepare a report on the subject.

side from St. Paul to Spokane. We’re expecting that the pedestrian crossing should be restored at Queen and Columbia this week, but the pedestrian crossing at Washington Street may have to close. Vehicle traffic access up Washington Street from Columbia will be restricted. Queen Street will be the best place to park once Washington is closed. Once sewer pipe is installed up to Washington, installation of storm piping will head back toward St. Paul on the north side. Bedrock will be blasted and removed to allow

installation of the storm line. Another crew will start excavating for sewer on Columbia between Washington and Spokane after the asphalt milling is completed. Next week, they will be doing permanent asphalt patching up St. Paul and Spokane at the manhole installation in front of Golden Bear Daycare.

Congratulations to the RSS grad class of 2012

It is an exciting time for the most recent grad class as they make their transition from the high school into the uncertain but rewarding real world. There are a lot of things to take from high school, but the one important thing to note is it is not the end, but the beginning of a new life. Whether you stay in Rossland or seek to make a name elsewhere, remember all those people that were there cheering you on, not just at the grad ceremony, but also all through school. This grad class won’t be the final one coming out of RSS either, hopefully that title will be put aside for a long time down the road. This class however will face the future, one in which new and original jobs will be coming up in computers and technologies, as the business world, like that of education, is changing. Will that make it more difficult to find jobs? That’s difficult to say and would depend on the creativity of the youth to find that job they fit into. For now though, this is the time to live in the moment and enjoy the transition period,. A rare time when math tests and house parties are some of the important things in life. While the future is uncertain, there is a long line of Rossland graduates who have made a name for themselves in the past, in Rossland and the world. If you follow their example, then anything is possible. The people of Rossland look forward to seeing what you can do. We want to hear from you.

Opinion

Concerns persist over city’s dimissal of DCCs

Dear Editor,

With reference to your recent front-page story, “City gets rid of development cost charges”. The prevailing argument used by Council to justify their decision for repealing both the Development Cost Charge Bylaw (DCC) and the Sewer Service Cost Recovery Charge Bylaw seems to be that “there is no development, so we don’t need development cost charges”. To support this position, predictions were made by ‘City Hall’ that it would take hundreds of years for Red Mountain housing densities to materialize at the current rate of development and no upsizing of infrastructure is needed. The hypocrisy of this can be seen downtown where large excavations on Columbia Avenue to install an 18-inch diameter sewer line to replace the existing 10inch diameter are currently underway. This upsizing is to service 2000 housing units at Red Mountain. So why is the sewer being upsized to take almost 4 times the flow if little development is expected? Without this upsizing, the existing pipes could have been rehabilitated in-situ at any time, using one of a variety of trenchless piping rehabilitation techniques available. What you see downtown is the start of sewer upsizing projects to service a population of 10,000 at Red Mountain that might never materialize. The real reason for repealing both the Development Cost Charge Bylaw (DCC) and the Sewer Service Cost Recovery Charge Bylaw is to reduce costs to developers in the hope of making development in Rossland

more attractive. It’s only to be expected that developers would speak in favour, since the proposed “Capacity Connection Charges, (which the Mayor appears to be in no hurry to implement), are significantly less than DCCs and the City has no plans to replace the Sewer Service Cost Recovery Charge which was implemented to collect funds to help pay for the upgrading and upsizing of the Regional sewage treatment plant and interceptor sewer. The letter from the Deputy Inspector of Municipalities, does not give “his blessing on pressing a new path.” It simply gives permission to repeal the DCC bylaw and reminds the City that money currently held in DCC funds can only be expended on the approved DCC projects for which they were collected. The proposed Capacity Connection Charges cannot possibly accumulate sufficient funds to pay for the upsizing of infrastructure for the amount of development still being projected for Red Mountain and Redstone, as estimated by reputable engineering consultants. Without Development Cost Charges and the Sewer Cost Recovery Charge, guess who will be paying for future sewer upsizing projects, both Municipal and Regional? It can only be assumed that a majority of Rossland taxpayers are quite willing to pay, given the apathy that has been shown to the whole Development Cost Charge issue over the past 7 or 8 years.

Thanks to volunteers of RSS 60th anniversary celebration

What Are We Thinking About When We Drive? What are we thinking about when we drive? More and more often I am convinced that we are thinking about anything but the driving task. Please be assured that when I say this I am giving drivers credit that they know how to drive properly in the first place. I was waiting at a red light watching drivers turn left around me when I began to ponder this. Most of the vehicles I observed turned into the wrong lane and all of those drivers failed to shoulder check and signal as they moved over. If another driver had overtaken them intent on using the outside lane or had decided to turn right from the other side, would these drivers have been able to avoid a collision? I suspect that their first awareness of any problem would have been the noise and sudden change of direction produced by the collision they were involved in. This is far too late! Awareness of the vehicles around you and anticipation of what their drivers might do are paramount to preserving your own safety as well as that of others. Defensive driving means following the rules so that others know what to expect of you and maintaining a constant awareness of what is around you. Focus only on where you are going and you are going to eventually have trouble. You may wish to consider this in the context of what the drivers around you might (or might not) be thinking.

convocation. The class of 2012 was lucky enough to get a break in the rain to get a picture, but the yearly grad parade, in which the grads march down the streets of Rossland had to be cancelled due to the unfavourable weather. The guys in their best tuxedos and suits and the girls in blue, pink, yellow and green dresses laughed and joked around like only a tightly nit group could do. After photos outside, the 44 grads and large accompaniment of parents, relatives, teachers and government representatives proceeded into the gym for the commencement ceremonies. There, principal Terry McDonnell gave a send off to his students, as well as teacher Joost Winckers and valedictorian Jessica Britton. All three encouraged students to go out into the world and find the things you are passionate about, which will lead to good things. There were more awards and bursaries than there were graduating students, with the major school awards being the Renato Magnone Memorial Award going to Brenna Mackay; the Don Saare Memorial Award to Camille Craig; the Eddy Shepherd Memorial Award going to Jillian Reynolds; and the John MacMaster Award going to Jessic Britton. There were many other awards, which will be posted online at www.rosslandnews.ca. After the awards ceremony, the grads threw up their caps and headed to their dinner in the auditorium. The day ended with the grand waltz, a chance to show off the dresses and suits that they had painstakingly picked out. The waltz featured a portion of candlelit dance steps in which the entire gym was pitch black except for the delicate lighting of the candles the grads held. The night ended with the prom and the promise of no more homework.

Chance to speak out on aquatic centre STAFF WRITER Rossland News

Rossland residents have a chance to get their opinion out on what the city should do in regards to the Trial Aquatic Centre. At the moment, Rossland residents pay double the fee of any other municipality, because of the

city’s refusal to pay the amount that Trail is asking. The plebiscite asks whether Rossland residents and taxpayers support council to make financial contributions through property taxation for the use of the aquatic centre. The plebiscite also intends to find out how many Rossland residents intend to use the

facility, to decide whether it’s worth paying the fees. The plebiscite won’t bind council, but would be used in decision making. To vote, you must be a Rossland resident and on the voter’s list. Go to City Hall or visit www.rossland.ca for more information.

A great family activity Cycling is a great family activity. It’s simple, affordable, and fun. For a successful cycling trip, it is important to put into practice a few safety rules as well as some sensible advice. First of all, there’s no need to wait until children can ride a bike before making cycling a family activity. Young children can be carried in bicycle seats or in child trailers, which are more expensive but tend to be more stable for the parent. Many trailer models can be transformed into strollers.

PHOTO: POLKA DOT IMAGE / THINKSTOCK

For children older than five years of age who can pedal but who don’t have the stamina to do long trips, half-bikes or tandems, which attach to the parent’s bike, are interesting alternatives. Naturally, the wearing of a helmet is a must for all members of the expedition, however short it may be. The helmet should

be of good quality and be properly adjusted. When children are old enough and strong enough to be independent of their parents, it is important to extend the distances to be covered gradually, in order not to discourage these budding cyclists. Adults should always go at the same speed as the youngest members of the group and never leave them far behind. Sometimes children or teenagers can become discouraged if they have to make an effort. To avoid this, you might suggest cycling to a destination that will be of interest to them or promise them a welldeserved treat at the end of the ride. This will help them to associate good memories with the activity and it may even encourage them to make physical exercise a part of their lives later on.

Neighbourhood of Learning

Like it or not, education is changing. As parents, community members and even educators, we may not always like the changes that we are observing, or in the case of educators, being requested to implement. The new math curriculum, Math Makes Sense, has resulted in exasperated pull-yourhair-out sessions in many households. Students being engaged through more self-directed blended learning models

sometimes complain, “I just want to be told what to do.” In times of change, there is often a desire to cling to what is familiar worksheets, lectures, text-books, single-grade classrooms, distinct subject lines. After all, it worked for most of us, right? New education models can seem more chaotic, dynamic and downright scary. How are we going to know if students are learning if they are all working on different things at different paces? How are we going to grade them? What will our classrooms look like? Are kids going to be spending more and more time doing online learning? Is blended learning really a better way to learn? For achievement-oriented students, inquiry-based, student lead learning models can seem like an unfair leveling of the playing field. For many of these students, memorizing course material provided by the teacher and regurgitating it on a test is a simple feat.

The fact that many of them do not always understand the material on a deep level or remember it a few months later is unimportant. What matters is the A. Or does it? Do we go to school to learn, to learn how to learn, or to earn our way into some form of higher education? The best answer is probably all three. What about those students that do not seem engaged by traditional models of education – that are shut off, unmotivated or unable to engage the course material? Traditional models of education privilege certain styles of learning over others. They allow certain types of students to excel while sending the message “this learning stuff isn’t for you” to other students. And are successful students truly engaged, or have they just figured out the steps to getting good grades? Learning and learning how to learn have not been a central focus of the public education system for as long as it has existed. Brilliant educators in Rossland and around

These principles are reflected in BC’s New Education Plan and increasingly in new education policies around the world. These kinds of changes are being proposed for RSS on a broader scale in the fall of 2012. Adopting new models of education is not necessarily going to be easy or smooth. Change takes risk and innovators need to be supported. Parents and students have to be patient and open to approaches that do not necessarily look like the ones we are used to. Watch for information about an upcoming open house for RSS parents on how the timetable at RSS will look next year. As Shelley Wright, an educator, observed in her blog, “If we truly want to do what is best for kids, we need to support teachers who willingly engage the messy landscape of student-centred learning.” http://shelleywright.wordpress. com/2012/05/30/a-wicked-problem

the world have fostered learning and learning how to learn for decades. Many of these educators have spent thousands of hours trying to ensure that no student is left behind. Many of them have also been quietly implementing new approaches to education in their classrooms for years without calling it ‘student-lead learning’ or ‘inquirybased learning.’ But innovators in the world of education are shaking it up a bit. They are saying that the sentiment “I just want to be told what to do” isn’t good enough, that meaningful engagement is a requirement for learning, and that students need to learn how to learn without teachers. They are also saying that these changes need to be implemented school-wide on a deeper level. Achieving these changes will likely require a change in the way we structure classrooms, teaching and schools. It will also require a cultural shift in how we view education.

Trail District Arts Council presents

Thrift store wants respect ARNE PETRYSHEN Rossland News Editor

The Rossland Auxiliary Thrift Store is asking people to be more respectful of its premises after an incident last week. Helen McLennan, past president, explained that because of fire safety issues, they have to keep the basement door open. On Friday, she said somebody took advantage of that and treated themselves to the back room of the store. “Because anybody down there has to be able to get out,” she said. “So of course somebody came in and tore all sorts of stuff apart downstairs.” McLennan said that one of the workers had been there earlier and she’d forgotten

her purse. “It was in an area that was staff only,” she said. The person picked up the purse, took the money and threw the purse into the receivables pile for clothes. “It wasn’t that they broke in, we were open on Friday and they came in the bottom door that we have to keep open and they made a mess downstairs and helped themselves to things, I suppose, and then they left,” she said. The area upstairs is cordoned off and labelled. “They went in and took someone’s purse and rifled through it on a heap of things that were to be sorted.” McLennan said that the message they want to get out is one of respecting the thrift

store and also to ask others that see things that are “untoward to maybe report it.” Mclennan said that the other problem they have is there is nothing open anymore in Rossland where people can take items for resale and recycling, so the thrift store is being treated as a recycling dumping place. “We’re getting a lot of grief because we’re getting everybody’s garbage,” she said. “They disrespect our signs that say we don’t take furniture, we don’t take microwaves, TVs or VCRs, but they bring it anyway.” The Rossland Auxiliary Thrift Store raises money for health related causes in the area. It has been around since 1938 and is governed on regional, provincial and federal levels, but have the ability to choose the projects on a local level.
