Taxpayers pay fare for BC Transit error

First Mica Dam spill since ‘97

Delayed transit expansion now reduced from four routes to three, but will cost Revelstoke taxpayers even more AARON ORLANDO editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

Wondering what happened to the transit expansion in Revelstoke that was approved well over a year ago? Now there’s an update, and it’s not good news. Following a wave of discussion, consultations and public input sessions in early 2011, BC Transit was slated to implement a revised transit system designed to improve commute times in Revelstoke. The new system was based on a four-route system that would connect at a hub in Grizzly Plaza. That system was supposed to start in September, 2011 – but there was a hitch. BC Transit didn’t have the new bus needed for the system to work. BC Transit delayed the expansion until Sep-

tember, 2012. Now, the City of Revelstoke has revealed the four-route system is off the table due to a BC Transit calculation error that vastly underestimated the cost of the new, expanded system. Now, BC Transit is proposing a scaled-back, three-route system, which will cost city taxpayers even more than the better, fourroute system. The existing system costs the city about $294,000 annually. The city agreed to take on an extra $43,000 in annual costs for the four-route system, for an annual cost to the city of $337,000. (The

Does Revelstoke have a crime problem? AARON ORLANDO editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

BC Hydro has opened the Mica Dam spillway for the first time since 1997, sending up to 1,133 cubic meters of water per second down the three-pronged spillway, culminating in a violent and beautiful explosion of water at the dam base. The water drops 150 metres as it races along the 585metre spillway – the highest drop of any BC Hydro dam. BC Hydro spokesperson Jennifer Walker-Larsen explained the planned, 24-hour water release on July 26–27 was a test of the dam spillway, “in anticipation of possible releases that may be needed to pass record high reservoir inflows this year.”

Although the 1,133-cubic-meter (40,000-cubic-feet) per second rate created a roaring torrent of water that dwarfed heavy construction vehicles parked nearby, Walker-Larsen said it was only a fraction of the dam’s maximum. The Mica Dam spillway was constructed to handle 3,171 cubic meters (112,000 cubic feet) per second. The spilling follows very high water inflows into the Columbia River system in B.C.’s Southern Interior this season. The Mica Dam holds back the Kinbasket Reservoir, which is forecast to receive more inflow than any other year on record in 40 years. BC Hydro experts expect the Kinbasket Reservoir to get 20.3 cubic kilometres of inflow from February to September this year – nearly five cubic kilometres more than normal. See revelstoketimesreview.com for video.

THE STATISTIC SAY YES – OR MAYBE – IT DEPENDS ON WHICH NUMBERS YOU LOOK AT ALEX COOPER reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

Walking down the streets of Revelstoke, it’s hard not to feel safe. There hasn’t been a murder in town in ages and assaults – aside from the occasional bar fight – are very rare. Property crime is a bit more of a problem – think of stolen trucks and snowmobiles in the winter and the recent rash of bicycle thefts – but for the most part, people feel comfortable leaving their doors (and bikes) unlocked.

Which is why I couldn’t believe it when I was sent Revelstoke’s crime rate for 2011. It was a rate of a whopping 10,867.28 crimes per 100,000 people. That’s nearly 65 per cent higher than national rate of 6,604.04 crimes per 100,000 people. It’s higher than the provincial rate of 9,148.58. As well, whereas in the rest of Canada the crime rate dropped by about six per cent, in Revelstoke it increased by 11.5 per cent.

Numerous creeks and rivers north of Revelstoke target of new IPP proposals OVER A DOZEN IPPS PROPOSED FOR NORTH OF REVELSTOKE AS BC HYDRO CALL FOR CLEAN POWER IS EXPECTED ALEX COOPER reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

A Vancouver-based company has re-submitted proposals for 10 new independent power projects north of Revelstoke. Syntaris Power, a private company that specialized in hydro power, has applied for investigative use licenses for three projects along the Wood River north of Mica and seven more between Revelstoke and Mica. They includes plans for a power project along the lower Goldstream River, as well as Brewster and Old Camp Creeks, which are tributaries of the Goldstream. Other proposals are for Clemenceau Creek, a remote creek in the B.C. Rockies north of Golden; Granite Creek, which flows into the Downie Arm of Lake Revelstoke; the Upper and Lower Wood River, which is a tributary of Kinbasket Lake; and two in the area of Scrip Creek, on the western side of Lake Revelstoke not far south of Mica. Two applications have not yet been placed on the Integrated Land Management Bureau’s website. The proposals are not new but have been sitting dormant since they were first proposed by Atla Energy in 2008. Atla was recently purchased by Syntaris Power. “We’re hoping there’s another

call coming from BC Hydro,” said David Kiess, the vice-president of project development. “We’re maintaining these projects on the potential these price-points will make them viable.”

The proposals are still in the early stages, said Keiss. The investigative use plans set out basic outlines for the power projects and what exploratory work will be conducted before work proceeds. There

are still a number of applications Syntaris needs to submit before it can proceed on any development. If the investigative use plans are approved, Syntaris would then be allowed to go onto the land and

conduct more detailed studies. Only after that would it be able to apply for land-use permits and water permits. “There’s further approvals we have to get from this initial investigative license to do anything on the land,” said Kiess. Syntaris is not the only company looking to develop power in the area. Selkirk Power Company has submitted proposals for a 13 megawatt IPP on the Upper Goldstream River; Mica Creek; and Stitt Creek and French Creek, which are tributaries of the Goldstream River. Mike Watson, who tracks proposals for independent power projects around Revelstoke and opposes their development, noted the cluster-like aspect of many of them. “It looks like a spider web effect where we build one so we can build another because they’re so close,” he said, comparing it to a proposal by another company along Cranberry Creek, next to the existing South Cranberry Creek IPP. He noted that the Goldstream River is already a highly-industrialized area with lots of logging and power lines criss-crossing the area. “In terms of minimizing impacts, it’s probably the best location,” he said, adding that the area does received a lot of recreational use from hunters and others.

Province sues Revelstoke for negligence over cracked sidewalk AARON ORLANDO editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

The Province of B.C. is suing the City of Revelstoke after a person was seriously injured in a fall on a city sidewalk. The Provincial goverment’s case is outlined in a notice of claim filed at the Vernon Supreme Court on July 17 by the Province’s lawyer, Peter R. Lawless. On August 10, 2006, Carleen Olga Tirling was walking on the sidewalk along Mackenzie Avenue between Third Street and Fourth Street. According the the claim, Tirling’s shoe became wedged between cracks in the sidewalk, causing her to fall. She suffered “significant personal injuries, damages and loss.” These injuries included a fractured right ankle, left foot, chronic ankle pain, anxiety and sleeplessness. The Province is suing Revelstoke for the cost of her past and future medical treatments, paid for by the province under the Medicare Protection Act. They are also seeking costs for the legal action. The exact dollar figure is not stated in the claim. The Province says the City of Revelstoke was negligent because

the sidewalk was not safe for pedestrian traffic and the city didn’t take appropriate steps to remedy the situation. The city should have fixed the crack, or at least posted warning signs or barricades, the Province claims. The Province also claims that the City of Revelstoke failed to adequately ensure its employees knew of their responsibility to keep the sidewalks safe. The statement of claim is a first step in a process; the city or its insurers must now respond to the claim. When contacted on July 26, City of Revelstoke chief administrative officer Tim Palmer said it was the first he had heard of the lawsuit. Palmer said the city would likely be covered by their policy through the Municipal Insurance Association, and didn’t likely face exposure because of the lawsuit. Palmer said legal claims against municipalities arising from tripand-fall complaints are not that uncommon. However, claims by the province against municipalities are an increasing trend he’s noted over the past few years, Palmer said.

City pushing satellite district energy system for Revelstoke Crossing Private energy corporations kick tires of publicly-owned Revelstoke Community Energy Corporation as city rushes to get capital to build new district energy system for three-hotel, four-restaurant development at highway intersection AARON ORLANDO editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

The City of Revelstoke is behind a push to implement a satellite district energy system for the proposed Revelstoke Crossing development at the intersection of the Trans-Canada Highway and Highway 23 North. The city is also exploring a bylaw that could possibly require that new high-density developments be hooked up to district energy systems. It is one of several proposed energy efficiency changes aimed at reducing residential, commercial and industrial greenhouse gas emis-

sions in the city. The news of the proposed new bylaw coincided with a July 25 visit by representatives of several energy companies interested in investing in the Revelstoke Community Energy Corporation (RCEC). Times Review readers are aware the RCEC is hunting for private capital to allow for the expansion of its district energy system. The RCEC wants to expand and build satellite wood-waste energy systems, amongst other renewable energy concepts. Representatives from Fortis, Corix and consultants representing other entities were led through

a question and answer session with the RCEC at the July 25 open house and tour. The potential investors’ questions focused on the existing business model and its finances, as well as the technology. City planning director John Guenther said the RCEC’s expansion plan dovetails with the city’s push to enshrine parts of recent energy planning initiatives into law. The city’s Community Energy and Emissions Plan (CEEP) and the draft District Energy Pre-Feasibility Expansion Plan (DEEP) both seek to reduce greenhouse gas emissions

in Revelstoke. The goal is an eightper-cent reduction by 2020 and 15 per cent reduction by 2030 over 2007 baseline levels. These two plans will have teeth if they are enacted into law, Guenther said. But is private development capital interested in being forced into a partnership with a public/private energy provider? “There’s some hot issues there,” Guenther admits. “The history has demonstrated in many cases that the bylaw provides better enforcement and direction for the community itself,” he told the Times Review. “It really provides a lot more predictability

and assurances for any proponent that’s coming in.” Still at the planning stage, these new bylaws would focus on new, large-scale developments, perhaps under ‘service area’ bylaws. Guenther said the plan was to get a district energy system in place prior to the development of the Revelstoke Crossing site, which is slated to include three new hotels and four restaurants. Council approved a land swap between the development’s proponents and the city in June. The swap allows for a road network on the site to move forward.

No charges or complaints against Bus fare not exact Staff-Sgt. after assault allegation from page 1

Times Review staff

No known complaint has been filed against Staff-Sgt. Jacquie Olsen after a woman alleged she was assaulted by the chief of Revelstoke’s police in June. Both the RCMP and the Commission for Public Complaints Against

the RCMP have told the Times Review they have not received any complaints regarding the incident. The incident in question took place on June 7 when Julie Gamache alleged she was assaulted by Staff-Sgt. Olsen. Gamache told the Times Review she was assaulted after refusing to stop for not wear-

ing a helmet. According to witnesses, she gave Olsen the finger and continued biking for several blocks before she was forced off her bike and tackled. Gamache has not returned several messages asking for comment.

Council passes up smoking debate AARON ORLANDO editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

City council took a pass on debating amendments to a clean air bylaw that effectively loosened new smoking restrictions proposed a year ago. Council passed third reading of the revised bylaw at their July 24 meeting with next to no debate. The revisions of the original bylaw, which were discussed

at length in a July 25 story in the Times Review, mean a blanket ban of smoking in parks is eliminated and smoking on city-leased patios will be at the discretion of local restaurants. City planning director John Guenther said the planning department will now work on plans for new no-smoking signs and ashtrays in the downtown core and in some locations in city parks.

This will include new ashtrays and smoking areas around Grizzly Plaza and other locations. Guenther said the department was looking at purchasing industrial ashtrays and had brainstormed the idea of approaching the Arts Council to see if local artists would be interested in competing to design the new ashtrays. “It has to fit into the area and it has to be well done,” he said.

city pays for 51 per cent of the service; BC Transit kicks in an almost equal 49 per cent share.) Mason said BC Transit representatives recently approached the city to inform them of the serious calculation error. The added cost should have been $92,000 in extra costs if BC Transit had done its arithmetic correctly, adding up to an annual bill of $386,000 for the city. In behind-closed-doors discussions with council in early July, the city balked at all the extra costs but agreed to take on an additional $15,000 in costs (on top of the previously-agreed-upon $43,000 in new costs) for a total of about $352,000 annually, based on 2011–12 fiscal year costs. However, that would mean a reduced level of service. Mason said the new proposal is to keep proposed routes to the Big Eddy and Columbia Park but eliminate an Arrow Heights route and tweak the Queen Victoria Hospital route to compensate for the lost route. The changes will be subject to input at public open houses, to be announced soon. BC Transit spokesperson Meribeth Burton acknowledged the error was on the transit provider’s part. “It’s unfortunate that BC Transit had a calculation error,” she told the Times Review. “Unfortunately, this went to public consultation, but we’re grateful that our crack team in the scheduling department noticed the calculation error and we certainly hope it never happens again.” Burton said BC Transit appreciated the “understanding and patience” of the city and council. “I’m relived that one of the options that was put for before city council was something that local government partners felt that they could accept and move forward on.”

Slo-pitch was a big deal in Revelstoke back in 1988. There was an annual men’s tournament that received full coverage and a complete photo spread in the newspaper. The end of the league season was also a big deal. That year, a group of local business people got together looking for a way to bring tourists in to

Revelstoke. They decided to host a big slo-pitch tournament on the August long-weekend. That year, 60 teams from across British Columbia and Alberta flocked to town to take part in the first ever Kokanee Glacier Slo-pitch tournament. It was billed as the “largest community event ever in Revelstoke.” Local teams took part and competed against teams from as far away as Victoria and Edmon-

ton. There was also mud volleyball, helicopter tours of the area, and a dance at the arena with more than 1,000 people in attendance. The Tally-Hos from Victoria won the $700 prize. “Considering none of us had run a tournament before, I’d say we did an excellent job,” said tournament chairman and future mayor Mark McKee at the time.

Crime data shows Revelstoke has lots of it, but it’s mostly minor from page 1 So what’s going on here? Well, the good news is that if Revelstoke does indeed have a crime problem, most of it is minor. While Revelstoke scores high on the Crime Severity Index, a measure by Statistics Canada of the seriousness of crimes committed, Revelstoke scores very low in terms of violent crime. For overall crime, Revelstoke scored 87.91 in 2011, compared to the Canadian score of 77.6 and the B.C score of 95.1. However, in terms of violent crime, Revelstoke ranks well below the national average of 85.25, with a CSI score of 46.71. Provincewide the score is 94.6. By comparison, Kelowna scored 97.4 in total crime severity and 86 in violent crime severity. According to John Turner, the Chief of Analysis for Justice Statistics with Stats Canada, that means Revelstoke’s crime rate is likely driven by small crimes, like break and enters, small thefts and minor crimes like disturbing the peace. “All I can tell from what’s in front of me is it’s the non-violent that’s causing it,” he said. So the organized crime gangs that make off with an F350 laden with two snowmobiles and the bicycle thieves are driving the crime rate, and not the random assailants and gangs of violent street thugs. Still, property crime is an issue and no one likes having their stuff stolen. The fact Revelstoke has such a higher crime rate than the national average is still cause to alarm. I asked Staff-Sgt. Jacquie Olsen, the head of the Revelstoke RCMP,

is she could explain the crime rate. She said Stats Canada’s number were probably off. “I have no idea how they’re arriving at that rate.” Instead, she pointed me to the Police Resources in British Columbia, 2010, report, which is issued by the B.C. Ministry of Public Safety’s Police Services Division. That report listed Revelstoke’s crime rate at 79 per 1,000 people, which puts it below the average of cities in its population range in B.C. “If you look at that and put that in context with other communities the size of Revelstoke, we’re better than most but not as good as others,” Olsen told me. However, she pointed out, Revelstoke benefits from its isolation in that it doesn’t experience crime from people who live in the rural areas like a place like Merritt or Trail might – two other communities of similar size. “Our sheltered position here changes things to a large degree,” she said. *** Statistics Canada provided the Times Review with the crime rate in Revelstoke going back to 1998. The numbers were separated out into the city and rural area and also into homicides, robberies, break & enters and motor vehicle thefts. So, what can be gleaned from the numbers? First, Revelstoke’s crime rate has dropped by six per cent since 1998, however it is largely unchanged since 2001. As well, the rate fluctuates widely from year-to-year – from 2003 to 2004 crime spiked by

about 25 per cent but other years have seen drops of close to 15 per cent. Crime in Revelstoke reached its apex in 2005 (over the 1998 to 2001 time period) when the crime rate reached 13,415.78 per 100,000 people. The crime rate has dropped by almost 12 per cent since Revelstoke Mountain Resort was built. In 2006, the last full year before the resort opened, the crime rate was 12,322.15 per 100,000 people. Motor vehicle theft was an issue in 2011, with Revelstoke experiencing nearly double the national rate. In terms of break-and-enters, Revelstoke is slight over half the national average. *** The numbers Statistics Canada receives come from Staff-Sgt. Olsen. She looks at all the files, tabulates the incidents and files a report, both to Stats Canada and to city council. “You call in a complaint and it gets scored,” she said. If you report a stolen bike, she’ll note it as a bike theft. If you call in a suspicious noise, it will be investigated. If it’s just a bear lurking in the bushes, no crime will be recorded. If a person is found looking for a way into your house with a home invasion kit, it will be counted as a crime. She noted that if five crimes are committed during one incident (say someone wakes up the neighbours, kicks a dog, breaks into a home, beats someone up and steals their car and TV), Statistics Canada will only count the most serious personal and property crimes. The hypothetical violent, animal-

abusing, home invading car thief, will be counted as two offences (assault and motor vehicle theft) by Statistics Canada but five incidents will be counted in the report to council (which explains discrepancies between the two reports). Sometimes an offence can be changed after the file is reviewed. What is originally listed as a bylaw offence can be changed to criminal if the officer’s report warrants it. *** What drives crime in Revelstoke? Small thefts and problems like disturbing the peace could be it, according to John Turner of Statistics Canada. “It looks like it’s just due to

B.C. Premier Christy Clark was scheduled to attend a breakfast ‘Women’s Roundtable’ at the Revelstoke Golf Club on July 31, Clark’s first visit here since she was elected premier. The women-only event is put on by the Province of B.C. – not the BC Liberals – and was to be hosted locally by the Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce. “She’s looking for dialogue with women in business,” said Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce Executive

Director Judy Goodman. “I think it’s awesome – any time you can get face-time with the premier,” Goodman said, noting she saw Clark address the B.C. Chamber of Commerce’s general meeting. “She was really dynamic. I’m really excited.” The event was open to women only, but a chamber membership wasn’t necessary. The event took place after the Revelstoke Times Review’s press time. See revelstoketimesreview.com or the Aug. 8 print edition for the story.

high-rate of property-type crimes,” he said. For Staff-Sgt. Olsen, a lot of it boils down to drug and alcohol abuse. “Property crime can be due to yahoos coming out of bars drunk or on drugs,” she said. “Do we have an alcohol problem? Sure, because it’s causing other criminal offences. Do we have a drug problem? Sure, because it’s causing other criminal offences.” Is Revelstoke a safe community? Our police chief believes so. “We’re a very safe community,” Olsen said. “We’re not the safest but we’re definitely not the most unsafe. As far as safe goes, we’re close to the top of the pack.”

They call it eat-your-vegetables journalism. It’s things like dutiful reporting of sewer rate changes, or a summing up the city’s annual accounts. The thing is, few give a darn about these stories. Just go count your clicks and it’s plain to see few are interested in these important, sober but hopelessly dull topics. And then comes along one of those issues that does connect with everyday residents, like moving forward with another phased restriction on smoking in public areas. Will council connect, or whiff it? In this case, the latter. The fact is a smoking ban isn’t a glamour issue for a politician. It’s a messy, divisive no-win that can be cancerous to a political career. Best avoided. For city planners, or even the CAO, a smoking bylaw isn’t a showpiece project that you can put on your resume – hence the staff report on the bylaw was signed by an administrative assistant. What started out a year ago as an initiative from a volunteer committee designed to improve our communi-

ty’s health is shaping up to be a drive to post more signs and install more ashtrays, with a few window-dressing changes that will have little effect on the ground. Where are the world’s best practices? Where is the evidence that someone on council, its committees or in city hall actually did some research to find out the best way of implementing a progressive, effective, and efficient restriction system that contributes to the cessation of smoking rates in our community and safeguards the health of non-smokers (and smokers)? How about implementing a system that doesn’t constantly reinforce to children that smoking is is a relaxing, enjoyable habit that adults enjoy when they’re relaxing in a park or on a patio? The mayor tells me it’s a commonsense matter. Smokers should have the decency to know they shouldn’t smoke on a children’s playground, for example. Fair enough, but that’s one of the few new restrictions proposed. And let’s not forget it wasn’t long ago that responsible, well-meaning parents would smoke at home in front of their children – in my lifetime, as I recall clearly through a smoky haze. Bylaws, multiple readings and the committee system is our accepted system for creating checks and balances. But the bureaucracy can also be easily manipulated to be an obstructionist tool that thwarts the will of those who seek change. That’s been the result here: a year of foot-dragging and dawdling, ending in a bylaw that nobody’s willing

to put their name on. New ashtrays are one of the outcomes of this bylaw. The city even proposes putting “butt mate” ashtrays near trailheads at city parks. An online search to figure out what exactly those are was fruitless (and downright shocking if you don’t watch what you’re clicking.) Are they those smouldering-cigarette-butt-fire-in-a-metal-cans currently posted near doorways at city facilities? Like the ones at the rec centre that draw smoke into the building where children recreate? Revelstoke, fortunately, has a relatively sophisticated political culture at the municipal level. City hall is in the midst of many complex, forward-thinking initiatives that require a lot of expertise, knowledge and progressive mindedness. Unfortunately, a lot of these initiatives are of the ‘eat-your-vegetables’ variety. What we as an aging community need is to attract, recruit and cultivate more young people willing to get involved in civic affairs. If council passes up opportunities to connect on issues that matter to residents, they’ll earn a reputation – fairly or not – for being part of the problem, not the solution. City council ignores these populist issues at their own peril because these are precisely the issues that voters connect with. More ashtrays – that’s not what voters support. This bylaw is at third reading. It’s not too late to do it right.

A few years ago, there was a feeling you could start almost any business you wanted in Revelstoke and it would flourish. A snowboard shop? Sure! Another massage therapy studio? Why not? – after all, the sky was the limit as far as tourism was concerned. The times, it seems, have changed. Revelstoke Mountain Resort has five seasons under its belt. Residents and the business community have a much better idea what the new resort does and doesn’t mean. Both Mike Brown of the new Taco Club food truck and Vance Shaw of the also new taqueria Casa Norte food trailer expressed nearly the same thing to me when I visited their new mobile restaurants last week. For entrepreneurs Brown and Shaw, their business ventures are a pragmatic and flexible take on business in a seasonal tourism market. They’re also a means to an end: enjoying the Revelstoke Mountain lifestyle while paying the bills in an expensive town where many hustle hard just to get by.

I met with Brown and Shaw last week to find our more about their mobile kitchens. Here’s what they shared about their new ventures:

Casa Norte Times Review readers will be familiar with Vance Shaw. He’s been mentioned in our pages when profiled as a ski-flick director (Vshaw Productions), owner of Infinite Martial Arts studio and as a musician who plays local gigs. The Redding, California native’s latest venture is Casa Norte, a home-made trailer kitchen. “It started with the salsa,” Shaw tells me as he takes orders through a window of his shiny, forest-green trailer parked in the former Farwell Market parking lot. Shaw often travels with friends to camp and surf on a property they co-own in Baja, Mexico. They’d practice making authentic Mexican food, and after a while he got good at his own trademark fresh salsa.

He hatched the idea of making and selling his own salsa. The glaring absence of a Mexican restaurant in Revelstoke made him consider his own. After talking it over with friends in the mobile food vending business, he decided to go for it. “A lot of it is just life,” he added. He worked construction to pay the bills, but work has slowed of late in Revelstoke following the completion of many of the recent big projects. He got all of his permits in place just last week and opened up the next day. Casa Norte serves fresh, authentic Mexican food, Shaw says, anchored around the staples of beans and rice. “No big mysteries there,” he said. The key is keeping it fresh and home-made. He stays away from the Tex-Mex hybrid more common in Canada and hopes he can win over fans for his home-made food in Revelstoke. There are seven items on the menu – if they run out of something, it’s done for the day. We try the Supremo burrito ($7) and the Supremo quesadilla ($6) and both agree it’s a welcome addition. (Ever have the ‘What-

Revelstoke-needs-is-a __________’ conversation? A Mexican restaurant was atop my list.) For now, Casa Norte is located at the Farwell Market parking area Tuesdays through Fridays from before lunch to around 6 p.m. He’s also working on a location for weekends and the winter. Shaw also serves at the Revelstoke Farm & Craft Market on Saturdays (not in the trailer – no motorized vending allowed in Grizzly Plaza). His plan to create and sell his signature fresh salsa is underway – and is available at the stand.

Taco Club Entrepreneurs and former room-mates Mike Brown and business partner Reilly Geidt are behind the Taco Club mobile food truck. Brown has lived in Revelstoke for about three years. He moved from Ontario for the ski and bike lifestyle. Since then he’s worked

at restaurants and through Okanagan College. He’s done party promotions through his business Astral Mountain Productions and also worked as a consultant in the social sector. He got the second credit on the city’s recent Poverty Reduction Strategy. Like many of Revelstoke’s new wave of underemployed transplants here for the lifestyle, Brown was searching for something flexible and viable, and explored the concept of a food truck. The upsides are multi-fold; the trucks can take you where the business is each season, and you’re not forced to carry overhead expenses through the shoulder seasons. Brown and Geidt spent the winter cooking up Mexican food for their friends and were getting pretty good at it. They also eyed the conspicuous lack of a dedicated Mexican restaurant in town. “We were looking for something creative to do, and we just looked at each other one day and said let’s do this,” Brown said. They converted the used Purolator Van themselves. Geidt, a carpenter, added a full kitchen from pieces they collected on trips to the Okanagan and the Lower Mainland. Its profile is the most striking; the propane generator is custom-welded to the front of the truck. It’s white with a chalkboard menu on the side. A custom paint job is in the works, Brown tells me. “We managed to get it together at the end of June,” he said. They’ve hit the festival circuit since then, travelling around the Kootenays, Okanagan and to the Lower Mainland. Other than a house party, they haven’t made their debut in Revelstoke, but are hoping to open up in the next few weeks. “Our ultimate goal is to sell from a stable location in Revelstoke,” Brown said. They’re currently scouting around for a spot on a private lot. They hope to work into other niches here, including the late-night crowd and at special events. The Taco Club wasn’t operating when I visited, so I’ll have to settle for a description now. “We make everything fresh,” Brown said. “We both love to cook.” Their menu focuses on carnitastyle braised fish and pork tacos and burritos. “Pork and fish just make amazing tacos,” explains Brown, saying they decided against beef and chicken more prevalent in north-of-the-border interpretations of Mexican cuisine. They also serve a breakfast burrito, vegetarian tacos and burritos and organic chocolate energy bliss balls. Prices range from $10 for a pork burrito to $5 for a single taco. Brown believes the food truck model can benefit all merchants in Revelstoke, comparing them to the successful Revelstoke Farm & Craft Market that brings hordes of shoppers downtown on Saturdays. “I think ultimately food trucks can really help out other businesses. They bring people to the street,” he said. “At that point they’re out and walking around.”

L I F ES T Y L ES Mobile food vendors can only stay in a location on a public location for two days a week, but they can set up on private property. City planning director John Guenther was positive about the new developments, saying the trucks could be a net benefit to the city. “It adds value, just like the Farmers’ Market does,” Guenther said. “But you have to be careful of the impact on the established businesses that pay taxes of course.” If they’re coming to Revelstoke, it’s a good time to explore policies on managing the foot truck trend. “It could be that we look at some options like that and then maybe provide for service hook-ups,” he said.

Congratulations!

FOOD TRUCK PERMIT STATUS Food trucks have exploded in popularity in the past few years. Search any North American metropolitan centre worth its salt and pepper and you’ll find all kinds of websites reviewing, locating and extolling the virtues of the mobile food phenomenon. The interest is broad; food truck festivals, celebrity chef trucks and even a reality TV show where food truck teams compete for supremacy. Also prominent, however, are inevitable conflicts. Stationary restaurants complain about unfair competition – they have to pay rent and taxes. Municipalities seek equitable ways to licence and regulate the industry. Food trucks vie for real estate. Times Review readers will remember a public battle between city hall and the owner of the Scratch food cart in Grizzly Plaza after it was found to be in contravention of its mobile vending licence. So, what’s the City of Revelstoke’s position on the food trucks? Currently, the city’s mobile vendor licence sets out the rules. It covers all kinds of itinerant vendors. There’s a long list of requirements with a few key details.

When Free Spirit Sports opened 20 years ago, there wasn’t much in the way of competition. There was a bike store and a ski shop and that was it. It’s a far cry from today, with two ski shops, two newer snowboard shops and two bike stores in town. Through it all, Elmer Rorstad has kept Free Spirit Sports going and to celebrate, he is hosting a party at the story this Thursday, Aug. 2. Rorstad was a teacher at Revelstoke Secondary School when he opened FSS with his colleague Terry Beitel. “It was something new to do. Maybe a mid-life crisis,” Rorstad said. “We were both interested in doing something else but we still had our love of teaching.” The store was a “mom-andpop” operation located where Work ‘n’ Play now is when it first opened in 1992. Team sports equipment, like basketballs, volleyballs, baseball equipment were the big sellers. Team apparel was also popular and the store also carried fishing gear and hunting supplies, including rifles. “I had to get my firearms certification to sell it. We were selling rifles and I didn’t know anything about it,” Rorstad told me. It’s a far cry from the store today, where the team sporting goods are relegated to the back corner and lifestyle clothing and technical wear. Gone are the bikes and in is the avalanche safety gear. It moved into its current location for the raised floor at the back and underwent a massive

renovation in October 2010. Rorstad has seen the changes in the industry and in Revelstoke through his 20 years as owner of the store. In the mid90s, he started selling technical outdoor clothing by brands like The North Face. Around that same time he taught himself how to snowboard and began selling them too. He’s watched as the number of brands has exploded from a handful to dozens, each with a specific niche. He’s seen customers get pickier too, looking for the perfect colour and the perfect set of features. “It makes it more uncertain becasue there’s so much more selection,” he said. “The customer is becoming more technically astute. They’re looking at things and seeing how it applies to what they’re doing.” On the marketing front, things have changed too. When I stopped by FSS to meet Rorstad, store manager Becky Doyle was in the back taking part in a training seminar on how to effectively use social media to promote the business. The store is running a photo contest through its Facebook page, with prizes every two weeks to the photo that gets the most likes, as well as to the staff pick. “It’s about building up a group of like-minded people and keeping them updated with what’s going on in the store and with us as staff and family,” said Rorstad of the new marketing push, adding that it also provides a way to get feedback from customers. Another difference in the industry Rorstad has noticed is that companies no longer go

through distributors; instead they deal with retailers directly. New clothing lines also come out much earlier than usual – purchasing for spring 2013 just happened, and winter lines are bought nearly a year in advance. In Revelstoke, he’s noticed the shift in the town to a winter from a summer destination. It used to be that most of his business would be done in the summer – now he estimates he does double the business in winter as in summer. “Summer used to be more than winter during first 15 years,” he said. Since Revelstoke Mountain Resort opened, summer business has slowed but winter has exploded. He has noted that tourists – a large portion of the customer base in a small town – are being more selective about where they go, checking the weather at the last minute before choosing their destination. If it’s a powder day, they’ll come to Revelstoke but if the weather forecast shows more sun in the Okanagan, they’ll head there. What has been the key to the store’s success? One thing Rorstad pushes is the fact its locally owner and operated. “We hire local, we advertise local and we have local knowledge of conditions. We hope to be doing more of that with our social media.” Rorstad is now 60. His wife Liz is expecting the couple’s second child soon. He plans on sticking around for another 10 years, he said. “No guarantee after that. I’m no spring chicken.”

THE BUZZ

PHOTOGRAPHY OTOGRA HINTS ~ by Andrew Moore, Pharmasave Photolab Hello Revelstokians. Only 104 days until the snow flies! Sorry to state the obvious, but we have a limited opportunity for taking photographs of summer and fall landscapes. Some of this time is ideal for creating photographic magic.For example, at the end of July and the first couple of weeks in August there is an oasis of wild alpine flowers in the Meadows In The Sky (Mount Revelstoke National Park). Or how about visiting one of the majestic waterfalls in the local area: Begbie Falls, Sutherland Falls and the best one of them all, the spillway at the Revelstoke dam (when open). I have found that it isn’t necessary to drive for hours, as I believe we live in the mecca of a changing landscape. The most striking vista is more than a study of scenery, it is the act of capturing a moment in time, a passing storm, an unusual sunset or a foggy morning. Listening to Radio Weather Canada 162.400 MHz is almost a religious event. The forecasts that catch my attention are the ones where the humidity is high, the winds are calm and the temperature is dropping, morning fog is almost sure to happen. A morning of light fog where the sun is burning a hole through it is a photographers dream, everything is transformed into a wonderland (did you catch a glimpse of that eagle “WOW” my camera is still in my bag, “damn”).

Wax Mannequin is playing the River City Pub on Wednesday, Aug. 1.

The contrast that is Wax Mannequin Surreal folk performer Wax Mannequin promises a fun, rocking show on Aug. 1 at the River City Pub ALEX COOPER reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

When you spend a lot of time touring, bad things are bound to happen. Vans break down, a show might go poorly, a booker might stiff you or you might get sick. Last year, Wax Mannequin, the alter-ego of Chris Adeney, was robbed in Calgary. This year, when I called him for an interview, he was in Lethbridge getting a new tire for his car after getting a flat 300 kilometres out of town. “It’s been a really good tour so far but inevitably there’s some automobile complications going on and I’ve encountered them,” said the Hamilton-based performer in a phone interview while he dealt with his car trouble. “It’s all solved itself pretty smoothly.” Adeney was on his way across Canada on yet another cross-country tour that will see him stop at the River City Pub in Revelstoke this Wednesday, Aug. 1. He’s no stranger to travelling across Canada, either solo or with a backing band. This time he’s touring solo and collaborating with friends along the way. This will be his first show in Revelstoke, so he doesn’t have any friends here yet, but he did issue an invitation for people to join him. “Maybe you can point me towards some local folks who might want to collaborate,” he

said. “As far as I’m planning its going to be a solo performance.” Words like ‘surreal’, ‘freaky’, and ‘post-modern’, have been used to describe Wax Mannequin’s style of folk music. Adeney started performing as Wax Mannequin while in art school. He started playing nylonstring guitar, developing a style that was influenced by the likes of Bruce Cockburn, Frank Zappa and other folk musicians. “I would write a lot of words. I really got into folk-finger style on a nylon string guitar,” he said of his early material. “From there I branched out on my guitar playing and hit a lot of finger-style arrangements I felt were really experimental and really challenging.” He started off playing strange, sombre acoustic folk music, but released two electric albums that were much more rocking and poppy than his early efforts. Recently he has gone back to his acoustic roots after finding a nylon-string guitar at a music store on Commercial Ave. in Vancouver. “It had a nice tone when put through an amp, really punchy. It didn’t feedback all the much so I started using that for my live shows and putting it through an amp and getting a nice distorted sound when I wanted to or getting nice acoustic tones when appropriate,” he said. “It was a turning point finding the right guitar and the right sound for what I do.”

Wax Mannequin will be releasing his sixth album, No Safe Home, on August 5 while on tour. He described it as “strange folk music” that is sparsely produced. “A lot of it is just me and a guitar but we have a lot of guest musicians playing various instruments too. Catchy sombre is how I think of it.” As I spoke to Adeney, he dealt with his tire problems and told me he was on his way to Edmonton where he was meeting up with his wife and son for the rest of the tour. He said his new songs look at the connection between his personal relationships and the political climate. “When I talk to about No Safe Home I talk about travel on shifting ground,” he said. “I think at times like these I fall back on my nomadic instincts and I’m more comfortable when I move and more safe. I bring my family with me and we get to meet up with all of our friends.” Wax Mannequin is playing solo on his current tour. He has a set up of electronics and other noise-makers, while he plays acoustic guitar. “Its strange, catchy folk music that will make you dance; and dark humour that will make you think,” he said. “Just a good time. It will be a party for me. It will be a one-man party at least.” Wax Mannequin performs at the River City Pub on Wednesday, Aug. 1, at 9 p.m.

When shooting landscapes have you ever thought about taking multiple exposures and combining them? This can increase the High Dynamic Range (HDR) of the scene. Simply put, you shoot three photographs of the scene,

one at the metered exposure, one overexposed and one underexposed, taking the highlight and shadow detail from the overexposed and underexposed images and placing them in the middle with the exposed image. Summer and fall are the seasons when photographers work hardest, photographing everything from soccer games, backcountry nature scenes in the autumn, weddings and more. We should all experiment and have fun! If we don’t, after a while, all our pictures start to look the same. Here are a couple of ideas that might help. The Early Morning: The light is mild, the air is calm and in the early hours of the morning, mist rises off the lakes, birds start to sing and the scenic overlooks have no crowds. A great time to catch the animals out for their morning feed. Shoot in the Shade: The sun is great for tanning, but shooting in direct sunlight is a hard lightsource because of it being bright and contrasty. Overcast days work as a better light source. Some people stay home though as the light is too flat. Generally flat light is not good for wide landscapes, but it is well suited for tight shots where shadows are soft. Using Filters: Using a polarizing filter not only makes blue skies richer (as they can be washed out by the sun) but it also saturates all colours by removing reflective glare. Sunrise or sunsets you will see an increase in colour and detail in the landscape and sky.

Revelstoke FC thumped the Salmon Arm Outlaws 9-1 in men’s soccer action last Wednesday to stay in contention for the regular season title of the North Okanagan Soccer League. Revelstoke took advantage of an under-manned and undergunned Salmon Arm team in the lop-sided victory. Salmon Arm, who showed up without any subs, lost a player early and were forced to play the match a man down. In the second-half they lost another player to injury for about 15 minutes, giving Revelstoke an even greater advantage. Revelstoke feasted on the 2-10

Outlaws, getting two goals each from Quentin Silzer and John McNaughton, and one goal from father & son Louie and Landon Fuscaldo; brothers Tom and Josh Lynch; and Tom Nelson. The win boosted Revelstoke to 9-3-2 on the season, with four games left to play. The team is third in the standings, only two points behind Courvas and Turnkey, who are tied for the league lead. “It’s been turning out well,” said team captain Sergio Spataro. “We lost a couple of games we should have won.” He said the team was winning despite missing a number of players due to other commitments. There were only 13 players at Wednesday’s game, from a ros-

ter of 23. “On a day like today against a good team with subs, it would be a lot tougher,” he added. The team lost several key players this season but received a boost from some international additions, including the Lynch brothers from Australia, and Nelson and McNaughton, who are from England. Revelstoke played its last home game of the season against North Enderby Timber on Monday, July 30, after press time. NET was three points behind Revelstoke in the standings. After that, it finishes off the regular season with three road games against Davidson Dynamite, Concept Physio and NOD Eagle Homes.

Robertson, Bernier win fifth Twoonie race Bart Jarmula Revelstoke Cyclying Association

Wednesday Night Racing presented by Arrow Helicopters resumed on July 18 and 25 racers were keen to get their racing fix again after the short mid-season break. The five-kilometre course featured gradual climbing up Berm Donor and Toad School as well as fun descents down Dusty Beaver and Buff Enuff. Most riders completed three or four laps within the 90-minute time limit. The uphill finish ensured that riders pushed hard right until the end. The pace off the start was brisk and after the first lap several riders were within a minute of the leader. By the second lap a group of three had pulled away as overeager racers started to suffer. Don Robertson, Jeff Bellis and Brendan MacIntosh rode neck-andneck at the front until their fourth

lap when Don pulled away for the win narrowly beating Jeff to the line. Robertson’s win means the race series had four different winners in five races. Unfortunately, Brendan suffered from the dreaded “bonk” and faded on the last lap – I think two hours of riding in the heat earlier in the day may have caught up with him. Bart Jarmula kept up a steady pace, winning the prime for closest lap times and rounding out the podium in third. Although the men have had multiple winners this season the women’s field continues to be dominated by Mel Bernier. Her fifth win of the season required a bit more suffering than usual as she was fighting an illness. Sarah Newton once again finished second. Annie Gornall finished third in her first race of the season.

Thanks to our sponsors (including Valhalla Pure, Skookum, Selkirk Tangiers, Stoke Roasted Coffee) for providing draw prizes. Liz Kozak won the free entry to the Kaslo Sufferfest – I hope you are ready to suffer Liz! We’ll be giving away one more free entry at the next race. The course for the next race will be posted mid-week. The tentative plan is to have a gravity enduro section (timed downhill) so I expect all the downhill enthusiasts to come out and challenge the XC crowd. Our last race of the season will be going retro as we’ll be making use of the old XC race loops on Mount Mackenzie. Thanks to Revelstoke Mountain Resort for letting us revive the old trails. As always specific details will be available after the next race but circle the date on your calendar – you won’t want to miss it!

Glacier Challenge turns 25 from page 4 The next year about 1,500 players on 66 teams took part – 55 in the fun league and 11 in the competitive division. The dance was moved to Grizzly Plaza and 1,500 people showed up. The success of the first year brought many teams back. “We had a really good time so we decided to do it again,” Craig Duncan of the Metro Ford T-Birds from Calgary told the Revelstoke Times. “Personally I’m just here for the beer.” The beer, which for many has come to define the tournament, turning Centennial Park, and almost every other green space in Revelstoke into a big party and a major fundraiser

for local groups that collect the empties. By 1992 the tournament was at 99 teams. “Another Glacier Challenge ball tournament has come and gone, providing another chapter in a local success story,” wrote the Revelstoke Times. “It’s a win-situation from the players who spend four days in the sun to the spectators kibitzing from the sidelines.” This year organizers are aiming for 130 teams. Molson Canadian has come on as the main sponsor. There’s a complete line-up of bands for the entire weekend. On Friday, locals the Maritime Kitchen Party open up for Vancouver rock-pop band The

Boom Booms. Saturday features the first ever Glacier Challenge open mic during the day. At night Blindspot opens for Redeye Empire. On Sunday Blindspot once again takes the stage, this time opening for the Werewolves of Creston. The music closes with the Maritime Kitchen Party on Monday afternoon. In town, the presence of several thousand revellers is felt most prominently at the grocery and liquor stores. Campsites fill up, as do many hotels. Some locals do what they can to escape the madness, others revel in the festival-like atmosphere.

A photospread in the Revelstoke Review of the first ever Kokanee Glacier Challenge tournament in 1988. It shows the tournament has always been pretty crazy. Times Review archives

FIRST NAKUSP RODEO A HIT WITH LOCALS AND OUT-OF-TOWNERS CLAIRE PARADIS Black Press

Over the past week, Nakusp seemed to have been filling up with people from out of town. New faces from new places populated the streets, and accommodations, many but not all of them here for the First Annual Nakusp Rodeo. J.R. Bruvall, the rodeo organizer responsible for bringing C+ Rodeos to our town, had said he was a little concerned that he had hardly any ticket sales locally before the event. Taking a look at the crowd in the stands on Saturday, July 28, it looked as though there were quite a few locals who had decided last minute to see what all the commotion was about. Scattered around the site were merch tents and games for kids, including a mechanical bull and two shooting areas. An inflatable “OK Corral” had a bucket filled with water guns that kids could use to reenact a much cooler and less fatal version of the legendary final shootout. Livestock were corralled, waiting for the main events, with bulls lying in the heat, conserving their strength. Summer had arrived, including a late thunderstorm on Friday evening that put a bit of a damper on the Friday night events, namely the dance held out at the rodeo grounds. Other than that, it was

hot and clear, with the biggest challenge for the folks sitting in the stands and not wrestling, roping or riding was keeping cool and shaded. At one, when the rodeo events started, there were still about a third of stands empty, but they had filled to overflowing later in the show, with spectators surrounding the rodeo ring an hour and a half later. Starting off with bareback riding, one of the archetypal images linked to rodeo, the cowboys showed just what kind of stuff you have to have to get into the ring: skill, luck and toughness. Fortunately, neither rider nor horse were hurt, although the cowboy’s pride may have taken a hit after not making the eight-second mark on the bronc’s back. Steers were wrestled, calves were roped and tied, and the clown kept the audience entertained with witty remarks and physical goofiness. Dressed in a tight white starspangled suit, a cape and a mullet, the rodeo clown took on the challenge of jumping a very small dirt bike over a not-very-daunting line up of toy trucks, and a couple of prone cowboys. Josh Sheppard, the rodeo clown, hails from Clarkston, Washington, and has always loved being a clown. This is his sixth season, and although he has the skills to tussle with cows and horses, he said he prefers being a

clown. “It’s a good gig,” he told the Arrow Lakes News before the show, “It’s something I always wanted to do. As a kid I always watched the clown more than anything else.” Sheppard wasn’t the only American visitor. Cowboys from all over the Northwest states had come up to Nakusp to compete in our first rodeo. Like many visitors to the area, the rodeo announcer was blown away by the beauty of our corner of the world, and said it was the first time he’d ever been at a rodeo where you could see houseboats on a lake. The cowboys showcased their skills, roping and tying calves, racing horses, wrestling steer and more. For their part, the livestock gave as good as they got, with more than one cowboy missing his chance thanks to a quick-moving calf or strong steer that refused to be pulled to the ground. Rodeos let cowboys display the expertise needed on a ranch when cows do need to be chased down, horses need to be tamed, and teamwork between both horses and men as well as cowboys is vital. For Nakusp, it was a chance for the citizenry to see what cowboys do, and feel the excitement of a rodeo. From the familiar faces in the packed stands, it looks like they got out and enjoyed it.
