Women leading dance through downtown

Ducks preparing for annual banquet, auction BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

A local group of women who think there has to be a way to a better world are taking their cause public on Saturday. Resonate Kootenay, a regional offshoot of BraveHeart Women, will be participating in a quest to set a world record for the largest hug exchange at the Creston Valley Fall Fair at 10 a.m. “Hugs for Harmony” is a way to bring awareness to the power of oxytocin, said to be the love and harmony hormone,” said local organizer Debby Johnson. Following the hug event, members and supporters are asked to join in a dance-walk, a fun and inspiring way of moving around any community. “We will be heading downtown, following a chalked route, and then returning to the community complex,” Johnson said. The dance-walk was created as a fundraiser to help send Kendra Lee, a local massage therapist and BraveHeart Women facilitator, to a peace event in Jerusalem.

After nearly three decades, the Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) banquet is a fall tradition, and tickets are now on sale for the 28th, which will be held Oct. 13 at the Creston and District Community Complex. The popular fundraiser hosted by the Creston chapter will follow the same format as previous banquets — cocktail hour with hors d’oeuvres, then dinner followed by live and silent auctions — but the impact is even more visible, now that DUC is slated to take control of the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area (CVWMA). “Under the new agreement between the B.C. Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and Ducks Unlimited Canada, the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Act is slated to be rescinded and management of our wildlife area will be restructured,” said Creston DUC spokesperson Lou Knafla. “The creation of the new management structure for the wildlife area will also involve input from our community.” See DUC, page 3

DUC dinner

From page 1 The change may not happen until after next year’s provincial election, but in the meantime, DUC will be investing $600,000 on major upgrades to existing water control structures and upgrading the dikes starting this month. The aspects that require upgrades will be highlighted at the banquet in a 15-minute slide presentation by CVWMA biologist MarcAndré Beaucher. “A lot of the equipment is so old,” said Knafla. “They do little fixes here and there. Some major channels need to be redredged, and some pumphouses need to be rebuilt.” And even though the CVWMA is a Ramsardesignated wetland of international importance, “it hasn’t had the quality of other Ramsar sites,” said Knafla. “As it progresses, we’ll have something to really show off.” Those projects will be helped out by the funds raised at the banquet, which has an extra event added last year, a high-flyer challenge. This year, there will be 13 auctions on 13 two-piece premier luggage sets. Each winner will then be eliminated until one is left, and chooses a trip to one of five locales, including New York/ Broadway, Cape Canaveral and Napa Valley. For those not actually taking part, “it’s as much fun to watch,” Knafla said. Beyond that, there is the tasty buffet with three meats, salads and desserts whipped up by caterer Carol Huscroft, that follows the cocktail hour that allows up to 236 guests to socialize — one of the most anticipated parts of the evening. “There’s a lot of chatter that goes on in that hour,” said Knafla. Tickets for the banquet are $40, available at Mawson’s Sports or from committee chair Gertie Brown. An early bird draw will be held Sept. 15, and the winner will receive a print of a red fox coming out of its lair by Denis Mayer.

Cherrybrook Farms hosting train-themed high tea BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

Railcar sandwiches. Boxcar scones. Choo-choo desserts. If you’re sensing a theme, you’re correct, and if you want a sample, you must be aboard when the train leaves the Cherrybrook Farms station on Sept. 15 at 1400 hours (2 p.m., of course). “I love tea and Gord loves trains,” said Caroline Martin, who owns the Erickson orchard/candy shop with her husband, Gordon. “So we put the two together.” Debbie Graham, who has hosted the annual Pink Garden Tea since 2010, fundraising and promoting awareness of breast

cancer, will join Martin, offering a special blend by New York’s Harney and Sons, containing “Earl Grey tea, plus black teas, lemony bergamot and grapefruit essences,” according to the company’s website. “We’re going to be serving DiamondJubilee,whichistheQueen’s favourite tea,” Graham said. The train-themed high tea is planned to be the first in a series. “This is the start of a journey,” said Martin. “This is the initial train station, then we make stops around the world.” Future teas will eventually transport guests to Holland, Japan, France and Poland to celebrate those countries’ tea traditions.

Dance-walk From page 1 “A meeting of 99 women will include 33 Western women and 33 women each from Israel and Palestine,” Johnson said. “It will bring women of the different cultures together and they can then go back to their countries and communities and promote the need for peace.” Donations are being collected locally to help fund Lee’s participation and the organization of

Teatime has been a part of Martin’s life since she was a child, when she enjoyed tea with her mother at a Lake Louise teahouse, the Banff Springs Hotel and Calgary Public Library. She hopes that guests will appreciate the atmosphere of the shop’s back deck while they socialize — something a lot of customers have been looking forward to. “Everyone asks what we’re doing on the deck,” said Martin. “To have people out here for tea will be quite nice.” Admission to the tea, which is limited to 20 seats, is $15. To make reservations, call 250428-3070.

the groundbreaking event. “It is an honour to support these women in their process of release and transformation,” said Lee. “I feel called to be part of this kind of global change. I had no idea that I would ever do something like this. These contributions not only support me in this calling but also these women. This shift will set a tone of harmony between their nations. I am so very grateful we live where I can make this choice.” For more information about BraveHeart Women and Resonate Kootenays, visit www. resonatekootenays.com.

Latin music concert to raise funds for Honduran children BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

The Prince Charles Theatre will be filled with the sound of Latin America when the Creston Rotary Club presents Singing for Honduras. The followup to last year’s concert will run at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 14, raising funds to buy educational supplies for Honduran children. “These children are from rural settings,” said Singing for Honduras director Marlene Nash. “They have very limited access to education. A lot are working in fields and are from very poor families.” The lineup for the concert is extensive, with performances by John Herbaut, the Creston Community Band, the Velle Weitman Trio, and the trio of Tiesja, Larry and Dixie, along with Zavallennahh Huscroft, Monte Anderson, Peter Bodley, Eddie Owl and Latin dancer Melissa Calderon. (Anyone interested in participating in the Latin dance portion can call Calderon at 250428-3493.) Nash, who once owned a popular ice cream shop on 11th Avenue North, will also sing, having returned to Creston this summer after a six-year absence. She guarantees it will be a fun night not to be forgotten. “We have put together a very unusual show this year,” she said. “I have a surprise ending no one will expect.” Tickets for Singing for Honduras are $15 in advance at Black Bear Books and $20 at the door.

Thunder Cats hire new head coach BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

Josh Hepditch is the new head coach and general manger of the Creston Valley Thunder Cats, and the recent arrival couldn’t be happier with his new home. “I’m blown away. It’s an extremely friendly, supportive town from what I’ve seen so far,” he said, adding that he and his wife, Kathryn, were invited to spend their first night in town at her employers’ home, even though the Creston PhysioWorks and More owners hadn’t met the couple. The 27-year-old New Brunswick native recently arrived in Creston, although he’s been researching and recruiting since the team hired him in mid-June, even helping out at a Merritt training camp with 2007-2011 Thunder Cats coach Joe Martin. He started playing hockey as a child, following in his older brother’s footsteps. “I just did the same thing every other kid did,” he said. “As the years went on, the dream got bigger, and I tried to take it as far as it would go.” Hepditch played minor hockey in Fredericton, N.B., until he was 17, when he joined the Moncton Wildcats in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. After that, he spent five years on the University of New Brunswick team before joining the Central Hockey League’s Allen Americans in Texas. Through it all, he proved himself to be versatile, playing both forward and defence. “That was something that helped me get through my career,” he said.

As early as age 20, Hepditch knew he wanted to be a coach but still had a passion for playing. He spent the following years learning what he could from the excellent

coaches on the Moncton and UNB teams — the UNB coaches led the team to the finals four times during Hepditch’s time on it, and

Moncton coaches Ted Nolan, Danny Flynn and Daniel Lacroix went on to coach the New York Islanders. The first test of Hepditch’s skills came on the weekend, when the Thunder Cats training camp was held at the John Bucyk Arena from Aug. 30-Sept. 2, with about 30 hopefuls slated to attend. That was to be followed by an exhibition game against the Glacier Nationals — a Montana team in the Northern Pacific Hockey League holding its training camp in Fernie — on Sept. 4 in Creston, and away exhibition games against the Kimberley Dynamiters (Sept. 7), the Columbia Valley Rockies (Sept. 8) and the Fernie Ghostriders (Sept. 9). The Thunder Cats will host the Beaver Valley Nitehawks for an exhibition game on Sept. 11. Having just finished playing hockey, Hepditch is sure his unique point of view will be an asset to the local Kootenay International Junior Hockey League team. “I’m just out of the game, so I see a lot of it from a player’s perspective,” he said. “A lot of players don’t agree with what the coach is doing, and now that I’m in the coach’s seat, I can see why.”

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a lucky guy. Part of my job involves getting out and about and talking to a huge range of interesting people who are more often than not doing interesting things. But few of those experiences have left a stronger mark on me than an afternoon I spent recently while I was working on a Meet Your Maker story about young farmers Joel and Jen Comer. Joel was kind enough to take time out to drive me out to a couple of Lister sites where some of their hives (which they own in partnership with his parents) are situated. Wanting to get some good photos, I pushed my queasiness as far down as I could, donned a white jumpsuit with attached screen mask, jammed my bare hands deep into my pockets and accompanied Joel as he approached a group of wood boxes, each of which is home to tens of thousands of bees. Now, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hardly a secret that bees are fascinating creatures. And it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprise me at all when, a week earlier, Jen told me that she and her husband had â&#x20AC;&#x153;fallen in loveâ&#x20AC;? with them. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known Lew Truscott, who has spent more than half of his long life raising bees and reaping honey, for a long time and his enthusiasm is contagious. Over the years Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve come to admire farmers for the multitude of skills they need to survive. Now, I am coming to understand that beekeeping is a specialty of an entirely different magnitude, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to overestimate their importance to our planet. Since my photo session with Joel Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve read a couple of books on the subject, watched a documentary film and even re-watched Uleeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Gold, a

wonderful movie starring Peter Fonda that was made 15 years ago, earning him a well-deserved Oscar nomination. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been thinking and even dreaming about bees.

This is the Life

Customer service is a priority

Is it just me or am I getting more miserable as I get older? I was wondering that the other day as we embarked on the journey of researching a replacement vehicle for the current one where the engine decided it was time to shuffle off this mortal coil. Having spent time in a previous life as a purchaser, I tend to over-research everything we buy until we are absolutely certain we have obtained the best value. Turns out the majority of people in our age demographic are quite similar â&#x20AC;&#x201D; most of us had grown up in an era where you didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have everything you wanted, work hard for your present paycheque and want the best value you can find. Some of us even post-purchase shop to get that glow of gratification in knowing we got a really sweet deal on that thingamabob we bought. So, engaging a young salesman (generation Y, maybe generation X, certainly not baby boomer material) with a list of questions, I found responses that were incomplete or ignored the question with the constant push to make a decision.

Gleaners happy to help pickers

To the Editor: (Re: “Pickers are among the finest people”, Aug. 23 Advance, page 7) Thank you, Susan, for your letter to the editor with a gentle reminder to all of us — that we should not judge a book by its cover or a person by what they wear. Many of us do not have the opportunity to meet or get to know the fruit pickers who come to work in our valley because they are here for such a short time. If we did have that privilege, I believe that we would think differently. These are young people who have come west to experience Western Canada and are away from their home province for most of the summer. Like any other young adults, they love to talk, ask questions, share their stories and are most grateful for anything special — like home baked muffins or fresh vegetables from the garden. Picking fruit is not an easy job and it takes committed, hard-working individuals to stick it out. Work starts early in the morning, some days are pretty hot by noon and some mornings can be very chilly, requiring toques and gloves. So while most of the population of Creston are still slumbering these young people are working hard to contribute to the main industry of our val-

ley, agriculture. Where would we be without the fruit pickers? While I am saddened to learn that we as volunteers at the Gleaners make some rash and unnecessary comments, I would also like to say that we make a special effort to assist the fruit pickers by collecting and storing things that we have learned over the years that they may need. A simple request for warm sweaters, mitts and toques would be a mammoth task when you think there may be more than 500 boxes to check. So now we gather these items in preparation for that request. We have learned to store bikes, backpacks, small packages of soaps, shampoo, small kitchen items and many other things for them. The pickers are very grateful for all the hospitality and even though some have need of the food bank when they first arrive, they have also been known to give a donation to the food bank when they leave. Personally, I look forward each year to when the pickers return. They are a happy lot, full of life and energy. Jean Syroteuk Erickson

Chamber keeps events coming following busy summer

It has been a hectic summer for everyone at the Creston Valley Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Centre. We have just said goodbye to our two student councillors, Jayme and Caitlyn. They were a great help during a busy summer tourist season. Best of luck to them in their studies! There were some interesting occurrences this summer. We actually had more visitors this year than the same period last summer, bucking the trend in many parts of B.C. Curiously, the rainy month of June saw us double our Visitor Centre numbers. We have also seen an unusually high number of tourists from far reaching parts of the United States — Michigan, Tennessee, Arkansas, Vermont, Massachusetts, Florida and Texas. Part of the credit for that must go to the International Selkirk Loop. Those folks are doing a terrific job promoting the entire area and especially the top 10 scenic drives in North America. A great addition this year was the summer art show put on by Artistic Visions as our entry in Artwalk. The amount of talent on display was amaz-

We are busy planning an event in the middle of the week, including organizing a sequel to “Common Ground”, which took place in 2010. Not too far after that is the Santa Claus Parade and Christmas celebration. We are constantly gathering info and looking for improvements for our annual visitors’ guide (published for us by the Creston Valley Advance). Plus, we have work on the annual spring Home and Garden Show. Meanwhile, we are kicking off a membership drive for the chamber of commerce. We are a membership-based organization and cannot do the work we do without your help. We are always working to improve on the way we do things and the things we do. We want to start by asking a simple question, “What do you want us to do?” We welcome your thoughts, ideas and suggestions. Call me at the chamber of commerce and we can talk.

Sculptor brings performance art to Ramada

Who: Paul Dawkins What: Sand sculptures (and snow and ice carvings, and tiny houses) Where: At the Ramada Hotel now, all around the world When: Since 1973 Why: “Sunshine, a sea breeze, waves, bikinis — it was just heaven.”

BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

Paul Dawkins didn’t start with a plan to spend much of his adult life making sculptures in sand. “I like to tell people that the very beginning was when I was three years old, in a crib, reaching out between the bars for sand to mix,” he laughs.

The truth, though, is that he was an animation school student in San Diego, hanging out on a beach in San Blas, Mexico, north of Puerto Vallarta, and he “was bored silly.” Let’s get on the beach and build something, he thought. Soon he was constructing a 20-foot dragon with coconuts for eyes. “And I drew a wall of people, many of whom were asking questions.” He liked the attention — “It’s performance art, really” — and soon he was learning more about sand as a medium. He started, like kids playing on the beach, using only his hands to pile up the sand, wet it and start making shapes. It was in California in 1977 that Dawkins saw carvers packing sand into wood boxes. “I was amazed at what they were doing,” he recalls. For the last few weeks Dawkins has been working on a sand carving at the corner of highways 3 and 3A, a prime traffic spot provided by the Ramada Hotel and Conference Centre. It’s set under a rain-protected shelter and a common comment he has been faced with is, “I thought you were

Sand sculptor Paul Dawkins works on a sculpture in the Ramada Hotel parking lot.

doing a sand sculpture — that looks like a wood sculpture.” The “wood sculpture” was a weird stack of different sized plywood frames in which Dawkins was preparing sand to carve. Layers of sand are watered and tamped within each box as he gradually builds up a sculpting base that becomes more like sandstone than sand. A finished sculpture can be sprayed with a white glue and water mix that can help it last for months, he says. Dawkins turned that early experience in San Blas into a career, becoming the world’s (as far as he knows) first full-time professional sand sculptor. Over the next four decades, he would go on to travel to 92 countries, often winning sand sculpting competitions and teaching the craft wherever he could. “I got the idea to go to shopping malls and fairs, any pubic venue that has a lot of people.” He patterned his career after musicians, who tour from city to city, performing. “In the early days I would travel and stay in hostels,” he says. “In competitions, I would work alone, competing against teams of up to ten people. … “I’m a really fast shoveler,” he laughs. “I always started out with the biggest pile of sand!” The last 39 years haven’t been all sand, travel and bikinis for Dawkins, though. He’s also

He came to Creston in part to escape the experience of 10 years in Toronto, where he built up a company of 20 employees, creating special effects, props and TV character costumes. “It really got too big for me. I felt like I was losing my edge as an artist, so now I’ve gone back to the roots of where I started.” He talks of trying to settle down, but admits the lure of travel is a strong one. “The best education is travelling, I think. It is very mindopening.” Dawkins believes art is an important component in economic development and has seen his performance art grow into a major attraction that draws tourists and motivates other artists to get involved. As he works on what he describes as “my most detailed project yet” on the Ramada Hotel lot (with plans to add to his list of world records), Dawkins gets the chance to interact with visitors and encourage locals to pick up a carving tool and get involved. Sculpting gives him time to think, too. Travels in Third World, developing countries, have inspired him to work on ways to create low-cost, small-scale housing, using his artistic talents to make tiny homes attractive, as well as functional. But that, he says, is a story for another day.

helped to pioneer snow-sculpting competitions and done ice carvings, too. He credits his experience as a stop-action film animator and artistic background for the attention his carvings bring him. His creations are always designed to tell a story and give the appearance of movement. Sand sculpting also brings out the competitor in him. In the early 1980s, he was part of a team of Californians that won a couple of team world championships and consistently finished in the medals in competitions. They eventually decided to become an all-California team and cut him loose. “So later on I started another team and we beat them,” he laughs. Canadians and Americans have traditionally been at the forefront of the sand sculpting competitive world, but European and, now, Chinese competitors have risen to the challenge. Dawkins cites one of his most memorable experiences — of the 92 countries he has competed in 16 of them — as a 10-day competition in China that drew 10 million viewers over the course of the event. “The Super Bowl wouldn’t compare as an event. It was a sea of people for the entire time.” Dawkins didn’t abandon his early interest in film animation.

peaches, plums and peppers are all available at the market this month, along with carrots, greens like lettuce and kale, onions and other fruits and veggies. This month, the Creston Valley Farmers’ Market will be at the Creston Valley Fall Fair at the usual time, 8 a.m.-noon. On the same day there will be a vendors’ appreciation event where customers will have the opportunity to express appreciation for vendors they like. Come to the fall fair to participate! Tomatoes are a part of the nightshade family, which includes chili peppers, potatoes and eggplants. Tomatoes were even thought to be poisonous at one point. Tomato allergies and sensitivities are fairly common,

but for anyone not sensitive to them they are actually very healthy. Tomatoes are low in calories while being high in many different vitamins and minerals and antioxidants. They are especially known for being high in lycopene, which is what gives tomatoes their color. Lycopene is believed to have a part in preventing certain types of cancer, including skin cancer, and protecting the skin and eyes from UV rays. It is best to choose organic varieties of tomatoes as the lycopene content is proven to be up to three times higher than in conventionally grown tomatoes. Besides their antioxidant content, tomatoes are very high in vitamin C along with niacin, vitamin B6, vitamin A, iron and potassium. Because of their nutritional content, tomatoes can help control cholesterol, prevent heart disease, and promote eye health and the immune system. When choosing tomatoes, look for smooth, glossy tomatoes that are fully ripened and that are vibrant and richly coloured. The skin should not be broken at all and they should

not be wrinkly or too soft.

SO WHAT’S

THE BIG

Cheesy Tomato Soup Serves 4 1 tbsp olive oil 1 large onion, sliced 5-6 cloves garlic, sliced 2.5 lbs or 1 kg fresh tomatoes (about 5-6 cups), peeled and stem end removed 1/4 tsp salt 1/4-1/2 tsp sugar (or less depending on how sweet your tomatoes are) 2-3 tbsp fresh parsley 1/4 C fresh basil 1-1 1/2 C extra sharp cheddar cheese, grated

In a medium-sized soup pot, heat the oil over medium heat. Once hot, add the onions and sauté for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally. After the onions are softened add the garlic and sauté for just a minute or two before adding the tomatoes. Crush slightly with the back of a wooden spoon to release the juices. Bring to a boil, then simmer for 15 minutes. Once the soup has simmered long enough, throw the parsley, basil and cheese into the pot. Stir just to combine, then blend the soup with an immersion blender or transfer the soup to a blender or food processor in batches and blend until smooth. Serve with an extra sprinkle of cheese over top and stir in a spoonful of yogurt for a creamier soup.

Creston Concert Society announces season CRESTON CONCERT SOCIETY

We may not like to admit it, but autumn is fast approaching. The Creston Concert Society can help keep the heat on the approaching months with its upcoming series lineup. Visit our booth at the Creston Valley Fall Fair for even more information! Starting the 2012-2013 season on Oct. 20 is the return of Lorne Elliott. Humorist, story teller, comedian and musician, Elliott is described as “unrelentingly hilarious” an “a genuine and talented nutcase.” Best known for his CBC series, Madly off in All Directions, on his previous visit to Creston, he played to a soldout crowd. (www.lorne-elliott.com) Nov. 21 sees the return of the Toronto Consort, the internationally recognized ensemble known for its excellence in medieval, Renaissance and early baroque music. Featuring leading specialists on lute, recorder, guitar, flute, early keyboards and percussion, Toronto Consort will present a story of Renaissance diplomacy in all its shades. (www.torontoconsort.com) The Duo Rendezvous stars two of B.C.’s most dynamic young musicians, Daniel Bolshoy, Canada’s “reigning master of the guitar”, and Jasper Wood, Canada’s “violin virtuoso”, who will present a “rendezvous celebrating Paris.” Prepared to be entertained with their stories and dazzled by their skills. They perform Feb. 9, 2013. (www.danielbolshoy.com, www.jasperwood.com) Completing its first decade of artistic excellence with Passages, Ballet Kelowna

travels on a trans-continental journey through time from Spain to Russia and England to Canada, on March 9. The season wraps up on April 6 with the multi-talented Shane Philip, whose simultaneous playing of didgeridoo, guitar and a variety of percussion instruments will stun listeners to silence or encourage them to rise up in a tribal sell of intoxicating spirit. Philip blurs the boundaries between folk, reggae, blues and beyond. (www.shanephilip.com) Season tickets are $95 for adults, $45 for students and $245 for families (two adults and two students), available in the form of five tickets, which may be used for multiple entries to one show or one to each show. Season tickets are available at the Creston Concert Society booth at the fall fair or Creative Fix. Individual concert prices are $22 for adults ($25 at door) and $10 for students ($12 at door), available at Black Bear Books. All performances will be held at Prince Charles Theatre.

(Clockwise from above) Toronto Consort, Lorne Elliott, Ballet Kelowna, Shane Philip and Duo Rendezvous comprise the Creston Concert Society’s 2012-2013 season.

The story of Gray Creek’s Johnny Oliver Longtime Gray Creek resident Johnny Oliver died on Aug. 28 at the age of 92. Following is a story that appeared in a series of pioneer profiles in the Nelson Star: BY GREG NESTEROFF Nelson Star At 92, Johnny Oliver is Gray Creek’s oldest old-timer. But he sure doesn’t act like it. He’s a flirt and a card and will keep you in stitches. He jokes that he’s “127 per cent disabled” even as he continues to tend to his farm and extensive gardens. He says he has “thousands of friends and no enemies, but I don’t know why,” even though it’s obvious to most. Born into a family that arrived in Gray Creek around 1905, Oliver grew up there and in Taghum, where his father worked in a sawmill. At 21, he joined the navy and reported for stoker training. (Seven other Olivers, brothers and cousins, also served in the Second World War.) He cleaned boilers for a year, then was drafted onto the HMCS Weyburn for Mediterranean service. On its way home, the ship struck a mine off Gibraltar and sank, killing eight. Despite his own injuries, Johnny carried a badly burned sailor to safety. He was the only one of 25 stokers he enlisted with to make the rank of chief petty officer/engine room artificer. On weekend leave in 1942, he went to London to visit his brother George, who was dating a girl named Florrie Griffin. At her house, Johnny saw a picture on the mantle of a woman who

looked like Rita Hayworth. “Who in the hell is that?” he asked. “That’s the girl you’re going to take to the show tonight,” George replied. “They don’t make ’em like that in Canada,” Johnny said. So began a romance that war and prolonged absences couldn’t abate. Johnny and Grace only saw each other a few more times before they married on April 6, 1945. In Canada, though, things were tough for Grace. Stepping off the train in Procter, a woman told her, “We’re tired of you hussies marrying all our men!” Her mother-in-law didn’t approve of her either, for the Olivers were Catholic and Grace was Protestant. But gradually, their relationship improved. Johnny received his navy discharge in 1947, a year before his seven-year term was up. “I wanted to divorce the navy and hold on to Grace,” he says. “It was a good trade.” His father bought him a neighbouring property, which they turned into a working farm, with all the necessary outbuildings and a house for a growing family. Grace and Johnny had three kids, fostered several more and became grandparents to the entire community. Grace was an excellent chef, but when she became wheelchair-bound, Johnny looked after the meals. “She never complained about my cooking,” he says, “as long as I kept the thermos full of tea.” (Grace died in 2008, soon after her sister, who married Johnny’s brother.) Johnny spent 25 years with the highways department, then retired to work

on his farm. Last month, he led a tour of the property, which still has cows and chickens. The hayloft, in particular, is a favourite for visitors.

Greg Nesteroff

He pointed out a gazebo he built when he was 90, and lamented that he can’t do as much as he used to, on doctors’ orders. “They won’t let me split wood or throw baled hay or anything hard. I can only work about a quarter of what I did 60 years ago,” he said. The recent Gray Creek museum days featured an exhibit on him and his family, including some tools he made in a navy mechanician course. Spotting a picture of himself around the time of his enlistment, he exclaimed, “Tear that down! Seventy years have turned me into an old man.” Hardly.

See your veterinarian for equine dental care

Professional dental care is an essential part of animal health. This complex treatment can involve anesthesia and pain control, surgery and various medical and reconstructive procedures. Trust the care of your animal to a registered veterinarian.

for horses began at a very young age and has been the primary focus of my M ylife.passion I saved up and bought my first horse at age eleven and still have him today along with another gelding, a broodmare, and another leased mare that I am hoping to get my next prospects out of this coming year. I rode just about every discipline of riding growing up but dressage and jumping are my favorites. School came pretty easy for me as a child so I decided to become a vet around the age of ten with the thought of combining my academic ability with my love of horses. I was in Pony Club and 4-H for many years and got a good basic knowledge of horse care through those clubs.

G

etting the acceptance letter from veterinary school after several years of college and univeristy in order to complete all of the prerequisites was one of the best days of my life. I understood how competitive it was and becoming a vet was absolutely the only career I was interested in so it was pretty stressful wondering if I would ever get in, and therefore a huge relief when it finally happened!

Dr. Emma Davis and friends

Dr. Robert McLeod, B. Sc, DVM Dr. John Pfeffer, B. Sc, DVM Dr. Leanne Sackney, B. Sc, DVM Dr. Emma Davis, B. Sc, DVM

I would do soley equine work when I graduated, so in school I chose to do all of the I thought equine electives and filled my practical year with mostly equine rotations. I stayed longer in Saskatoon the summer before my final year doing a six-week equine rotation that included medicine, surgery, and field service in order to get more cases during the busier time of year. This enabled me to get much more experience with reproductive work, foal medicine, general medicine, surgery, field work, and a lot more training with equine dental work.

I graduated from the Western College of W hen Veterinary Medicine in 2011 I started work with

an equine vet in the West Kootenays and did strictly equine work for the first few months. Come late summer, the equine work slowed down and it was time to look for small animal or mixed work. That is when I approached Dr. McLeod and was very lucky to get on at the Creston Veterinary Clinic where we see all animal species. I really like Creston and I love the clinic and the staff so I hope I will be working here for a very long time.

CRESTON AND DISTRICT PUBLIC LIBRARY

Foodies, cinephiles, farmers and chefs: Revel in this season of the Earthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s abundance! The Creston and District Public Library celebrates the harvest, salutes the valleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s agricultural significance and commemorates B.C.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Farmers Appreciation Week with its Fabulous Food Film Festival, presenting three stunning documentary films that will tantalize your taste buds and excite your mind. The films are: Ingredients, 7 p.m. Sept. 13. Farmers and chefs are creating a truly sustainable food system. Their collaborative work has resulted in great tasting food and an explosion of consumer awareness about the benefits of eating local.
