Twenty-two kilometres of roads in poor condition CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

The City of Grand Forks received a report on the condition of the city’s roads after much concern about it’s aging status during a city council meeting on Sept. 4. Michael Trickey and his team from Strategic Infrastructure Management Inc. from West Kelowna began reviewing the city’s roads in July and looked at which ones needed to be fixed and what should be done with them. “We looked at the safety and the condition of the road, and we looked at any drainage problems,” Trickey explained. “We did all the field inspection sheets, so where all the roads are geographically, and all the information about that road, such as the condition of it and what we found out. Then we looked at whether you had to rebuild it, which is the most expensive thing to do, then resurface or is there something you can do to maintain it.” According to Trickey, Grand Forks has around 70 kilometres of road. Of the 70 kilometres, 10 kilometres are in very good condition. Around 38 kilometres are considered to be in fair condition, which Trickey notes would be a concern in five to 10 years. The remaining 22 kilometres are in poor condition and should be either reconstructed or resurfaced. “There were also some roads that really didn’t have a lot

of activity on them, and it was very remote and unpaved; for those I would recommend running them until they fail because there isn’t much traffic and there are barely any homes,” he added. “We found around 2.8 kilometres of roads that we thought you should consider transferring because you’re not using it. That’s good news because it means you don’t have to worry about those roads.” However, Trickey pointed out that rather than spending a lot of money on reconstruction, he suggested starting a crack seal program to deal with cracks in the road that haven’t been sealed for several years. “We think if you crack sealed your roads, and had a major program for it, you wouldn’t have to resurface (the roads) for quite a while and it would save some money that can be diverted to your sanitary and sewer water system,” he said. For reconstruction, which involves digging up the entire portion of the road and rebuilding it, it would cost $88 per metre square. Trickey noted that there are three kilometres that require reconstruction, which is roughly $900,000 a kilometre and $2.2 million in total to complete all three kilometres. “If you resurface, which would just change the surface rather than dig out all the gravel as well, it’s going to cost you $42 per square metre, that’s about $400,000 per kilometre,” he said, adding there is around nine kilometres that should be considered for resurfacing.

“However, for crack seal, it’s only $2.95 per linear metre – and there is around 50 kilometres of roads that are in fair condition in the city.” Trickey also pointed out that the city’s decision would depend on what they find from the sewer and pipeline investigation. “If you find some pipes that need replacing, you may decide to reconstruct that as well,” he said. “You need to consider doing it now, or soon. The costs (to reconstruct), which would include construction, administration and design, would cost you $2.2 million, and $3.34 million for the resurfacing. For crack sealing, to do 50 kilometres may only cost you $50,000.” Mayor Brian Taylor was pleased by the report and what the overall costs fixing the city’s roads would potentially cost. “This is something we can do without a government grant at this point because we don’t have money for the bigger projects,” he said. The City of Grand Forks is already looking into multi-utility projects that would include updates to the sewer and road infrastructure. The report notes that of the 70 kilometres of road in the city, only 12 kilometres need to be looked at. Cecile Arnott, the city’s chief financial officer, noted that spending money now can save thousands for future projects. “One of the options we’re bringing forward is to mirror the road assessment with the sewer assessment because this is a known savings and a known risk,” she said. “There’s no way we should reconstruct or resurface an area without checking the sewers underneath because you don’t want to go through all that and not have checked.” Arnott is pleased that the city’s good maintenance plan “to get to it and doing the right thing quickly will save you in the future” has been working. The final report will be available by the end of September.

Public servants in Grand Forks joined the rest of British Columbia’s Government and Service Employee Union (BCGEU) workers for a one-day strike on Sept. 5. In Grand Forks, the BCGEU workers held their strike signs outside the Service BC building on Market Avenue and 2nd Street. Evan Stewart, communication officer for BCGEU, noted that the one-day strike was to get the government back on the bargaining table and to explain to the public their bargaining position. “Right now, the government’s last offer would see our members’ wages continue to fall behind inflation,” he said. “Our members haven’t had a wage increase in over three years, since April 2009.” Since that time period, Stewart pointed out that inflation has taken away five to five-and-a-half cents from their paycheck. The strike itself affected a range of services, including government offices and government-run liquor stores. “The government put on the table an offer that was saw a twoper-cent rise the first year, one and a half in the second year, which is below inflation,” Stewart said. “After three and a half years of no wage increase, our members weren’t prepared to go forward with an offer that would continue to see them fall behind.” In return, the BCGEU is asking for a three and a half per cent increase in the first year and a cost of living allowance, equal to inflation, the next year. “That first year three and a half per cent would see some of our members return some spending power they’ve lost, while the cost of the living allowance in the second year would see them keep pace with inflation in the increase in the cost of living,” explained Stewart. “Our master bargaining committee will be meeting within the next few days and we’re going to decide what our next steps are.” At the moment, the government and BCGEU are willing to get back to the bargaining table. “The best place to negotiate this is at the bargaining table and not at the picketing line,” he concluded. The walkout had around 25,000 members of BCGEU and roughly 2,000 members from other unions support the BCGEU union.

KARL YU Gazette Editor

Current City of Grand Forks Chief Financial Officer (CFO) and Deputy Chief Administrative Officer (CAO) Cecile Arnott has announced her resignation with her last day being this Friday. Arnott will be headed to the City of Rossland to assume the CFO and CAO positions and she said that she leaves Grand Forks happy with what has been accomplished in her time – she started in 2007. “It’s been really fun. It’s been challenging; I believe we’ve accomplished a lot, we’ve got a long way to go but I think we’re poised for success here,” Arnott explained. One of the more ambitious projects the city has embarked on recently is its asset management plan, where it decided it would borrow money to replace aging pieces of infrastructure – water supply, roads, sewer and storm drains – and Arnott was amongst those working on that. “It’s been a lot of work getting the message out but I really believe the community stands behind it and they let us know that by the overwhelming success on our referendum questions for the borrowing bylaw,” said Arnott, adding that she believes that the city is going in the right direction and doing the right thing. The soon-to-be CFO and CAO of Rossland was hard pressed to recall a single memorable

moment in her years in Grand Forks but is happy with how the city has informed citizens on plans during her time here. “I think for me, what makes me feel good is that we’ve been able to have all these open public meetings to be able to bring the council policy forward and to make that difference. It’s been great,” Arnott said. Dealing with rate increases is an inevitable part of being a chief financial officer and while Arnott said it is necessary, it’s difficult as well. “You empathize with people because when you’re raising rates, you know how it impacts people but you also have to believe that you’re doing the right thing and you would not recommend a rate increase unless you totally believe it’s the right thing professionally and personally,” explained Arnott, pointing to the elimination of the dividend for the electrical rebate as one of the more difficult choices – the last year for that was 2009. “That was probably one of the hardest decisions that council made and definitely was very challenging for us to get the message out as to why this needed to happen. Maybe there would have been other ways but you would’ve increased taxes by a considerable amount,” she reminisced. As to why she’s moving on to Rossland, Arnott said it’s because she likes a challenge. “I have done a stint as a CAO and I find that I like the idea of the challenge of the CAO position while maintaining the CFO title,” she said. Roxanne Shepherd will assume financial administration duties for the City of Grand Forks effective this Monday, Sept. 17.

❚ Our View

Pave now or pay later A majority of the Grand Forks’ residents voted in favour of supporting borrowing to repair various pieces of city infrastructure via referendum in last year’s municipal election. Of 1,168 voters, 791 (about 68 per cent) cast yes ballots for a question regarding borrowing a maximum of $1.3 million for emergency water supply. A question regarding borrowing $4.2 million to repair roads, water and sewer infrastructure saw an even bigger majority, with about 73 per cent (855 out of 1,175) saying “Yea.” At a council meeting last week, the city received a presentation from Michael Trickey and Strategic Infrastructure Management Inc. regarding the status of the city’s roads. According to Trickey, of the approximate 70 kilometres of roads in Grand Forks, 10 kilometres are in good condition, 38 are in fair condition (though they will become a concern as time passes) and 22 kilometres are in poor shape. Trickey also suggested that roads that had about five to 10 years left that had cracks could be sealed up – he said sealing up the cracks would mean the city wouldn’t have to resurface for a while and the savings could go towards other infrastructure renewal projects. That seems sensible and even though the city will be borrowing, it can’t go on a spending freefor-all. After all, the money will be borrowed and will have to be paid back and while the amounts approved via referendum might seem like a lot, they will quickly dwindle if not managed properly. However, isn’t crack sealing a bandage solution? While sealing up cracks on roads with some mileage left will save money, the roads will eventually need to be resurfaced or reconstructed anyways. What costs $88 per square metre now most certainly won’t be $88 per square metre five, 10 or however many years from now when the roads fail. If that were to occur Grand Forks would be right back to square one and money would again have to be spent, albeit at an increased cost.

People always worry that, with the dwindling number of First and Second World War veterans, the phrase “Lest We Forget” will lose meaning for the current generation. While those that made the ultimate sacrifice in those two wars should never be forgotten, it seems those that lost their lives in a more recent tragedy might be. What was yesterday? Tuesday? Yes it was but not just Tuesday, it was the anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks in the United States, more commonly known as the 9-11. Eleven years ago, suicide attacks were launched in New York, Washington, D.C. and Arlington, Va. and I found it surprising that there was no mention of the anniversary leading up to the day on the news channels, at least as far as

❚ Yu Speak


I could see. There are promos for Remembrance Day well in advance of Nov. 11. Of course, the argument can be made that only the Americans should hold memorials for 9-11, since the attacks were made on American soil but the attacks had an impact across the globe. Safeguards at airports across Canada and Unites States have changed dramatically and while it would be easy to say that it is a sign of the times, people shouldn’t forget 9-11 is the reason for screening procedures, whether you think it is for good or for worse.

While Americans will never forget that fateful day, it seems that this year’s memorials will be lacking a little bit. A report dated on Monday said that elected officials wouldn’t speak at memorial ceremonies in New York and while some point to the fact that it is an election year down south, speeches from elected officials help mark solemn occasions such as these. The Associated Press says the move was made in the interests of sidelining politics but memorials such as this transcend politics. Some have suggested that it should be more about the people who lost loved ones and while that is certainly good, the pomp and circumstance seems lacking with no elected officials talking. Back on Sept. 11, 2001, the world changed forever; let’s not forget.

Security at tourney out of hand Editor: I have been going to the Grand Forks International baseball tournament for nine years now. I have always enjoyed the whole thing – a good ball game, a great burger and fries and a nice cold beer. This year they were checking ladies purses. Not only was it humiliating but very embarrassing because I knew the women checking. This to me seems like “guilty until proven innocent.” I have worked at the games in previous years to show my support for the event. I have been going to concerts all my life and other large events and have never had my purse checked. If this is their new policy I will not return. Maybe whosever idea this was should calm down a little and believe that not everyone wants to smuggle in booze or drugs. I have talked to numerous women and all have said the same thing. They were also checking the teams’ bags. What? They thought these guys were just coming to have fun and drink? I thought they took this event seriously since it is for money. I do not think they would be allowed to come to the event by their team if they have a problem with alcohol or drugs. What’s next, strip searches? Sharon Ferbey, Grand Forks


Warning: abrupt turn ahead, be aware Editor: Our Canadian government has made a decision that is so out of what I have always known as the Canadian character, that I am utterly astounded. The “people” in charge (I use the term people loosely) have decided that they will sever all diplomatic ties with Iran. Condemning all Iran does

as “evil,” propagating the disinformation of the U.S. government verbatim and furthering the predictable slide into a possible world war! Is this what Canadians really want? Look up the NAM (Non Aligned Members) group meeting that took place last week and see for yourself that Iran is not a terrorist state! That Iran is not a threat to world peace! That Iran is a recognized and trusted member of the world community with a natural right to self-determination! That 120 countries from around the world attended and unanimously agreed that the U.S./Israel / now apparently Canada axis is not only wrong in their unwavering accusations and militarized determinations, but wrong in the eyes of the majority of the geopolitical players. This must give us, as Canadians, pause. We are not a warmongering country! We still believe in diplomatic avenues for settling disputes and above all, I hope that we do not want any more children murdered at the hands of this most obscene military industrial complex! Not our children, not their children! Do not believe the outright lies. Choose for yourself, choose understanding, choose knowledge, choose the long road to peace. If our choice is war, get your kids prepared because they will be the ones that fight and suffer! Do we really believe the lies that directly fly in the face of reason? Have we become that ignorant? For the sake of us all, I hope not. B. Lawrence, Grand Forks


Protecting a Grand Forks asset from cows Editor: The Nature Trust Properties in the Morrissey Creek Watershed have been hammered by cows.

The two property markers adjacent to the road

❚ OPINION read, “Nature Trust, Conservation Area.” The reality is that there is no such thing as range management and as long as range staff and ranchers are allowed to behave this way, the Gilpin Grasslands will remain a disgusting cow pasture. How is it possible that this can happen to one of Grand Forks’ most important assets – the Gilpin Grasslands? Jim Zibin, Grand Forks


Fresh start for BCTF Editor: I hope the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation (BCTF) and its president, Susan Lambert, can learn to get along better with Don McRae, the new Minister of Education, than they did with previous ministers. I, for one, am getting very tired of hearing Ms. Lambert claiming that education funding in B.C. has been cut when it has not been. Over the past decade (i.e., since the 2000/01 school year) education funding in B.C. has been increased by $1.4 billion. That’s a 26-per-cent increase. This funding increase is particularly noteworthy when you consider that there are now 63,000 fewer students in the province’s education system than there was a decade ago. And that’s not all. On top of the $1.4 billion in increased education operating funding (i.e., to pay teachers and staff), the province has also spent another $2.1 billion to build 93 new or replacement schools, to acquire 22 new school sites, to renovate 27 schools, and to add on to another 150 schools. How, in good conscience, can a professional body like the BCTF (one that seeks respect and support from the public, and presumably the same from the Minister of Education) characterize a significant increase in education funding, along with significant investments in new schools, as a decrease in education funding and somehow claim it to be a cut? The BCTF should take this opportunity to start fresh with a new education minister and work on building a better relationship. And if you ask me, it has to start with honesty and an end to the deceptive, self-serving claims of the BCTF and Ms. Lambert. Monika Bonney, Burnaby, B.C.

Shopping local a two-way street All Canadians want a thriving economy but we’ll never have one if we don’t all share the responsibility for achieving it. Every one of us, conALEX ATAMANENKO sumers and business owners alike, makes choices every day that impact the strength of our economy, now and in the future. Until we acknowledge that each choice we make, however small, has a consequence, we won’t see the kind of prosperity we seek in our communities. Making a commitment to shopping local whenever possible is a great place to start. When it comes to shopping local, many challenges and barriers exist for both consumers and business owner/ operators – the problems are on both sides of the cash register. Economic leakage is happening more every day across the country as a result of online shopping, cross-border shopping or visiting distant locales. So what does it mean to shop local? Shopping local can stretch past the limits of our corner grocery store. It may be showing our economic support for the community 20 minutes down the road or looking at broader regional initiatives. What’s good for the community next door is good for the communities that we live in, too. Here’s just one example of how where we spend our money can shape our future: one locally spent dollar can turn over in the community about six times. In the six-turnover scenario, the benefit is that the equivalent of about $1.65 for every dollar spent remains in the community, providing a sustainable economic climate for local business. Consider what our communities will look like if those dollars are regularly spent outside of the local economy. Making informed purchasing choices in the long term is one way we can all contribute to maintaining and developing thriving local economies. Local storeowners have tough decisions to make about how they can best give back to the community. Businesses are often asked to support and assist in fundraising efforts for youth sports, community events and charitable organizations. Pragmatism dictates that the consumers who support their local businesses will be the ones rewarded with commercial support. Small businesses also struggle to be competitive when faced with competition from corporate purchasing power. Pricing structures are passed on to the consumer not because of a business mark-up, per se, but as a reflection of wholesale cost. (Mark-ups are quite comparable in Canada and the U.S., by the way.) Consumers may struggle to support small business when they feel that the customer service is poor or the selections are inadequate. As consumers, it’s important for us to play a role in effectively communicating our concerns and needs to the business we frequent. Commerce is anything but a one-way street, and it’s up to business owners to ensure that those needs and concerns are heard and, wherever possible, addressed. Taking ownership of the impact of our purchasing choices and service-related decisions will help to shape what our local communities will look like in the future. Many local chambers of commerce are actively involved in shop local campaigns, as are labour unions, advocating for their business members through building positive community awareness. With that awareness, commerce and consumer can be brought together in a way that ensures our communities’ economic potential moves from dream to reality in the years to come. Let’s all work together to support the economic vibrancy of the places we live in. – Alex Atamanenko is MP for the B.C. Southern Interior

Fall is on it’s way


Smoke due to wildfires in Washington, Okanagan CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

Residents in Grand Forks awoke on Sept. 10 to smoky skies from the wildfires burning in Washington and the Okanagan region. Karlie Shaughnessy, fire information officer for the Wildfire Management Branch at the Southeast Fire Centre, noted that residents in Grand Forks don’t need to worry about the fires. “It’s just the smoke coming up from the fires,” she explained. “The only thing residents will be effected by is the smoke and if they are having any difficulties with the smoke, they should seek the advice of medical professionals.” The fires in Washington are roughly 140 kilometres southwest of Grand Forks, while the wildfire in the Okanagan region is more than 230 kilometres northwest of the city.

The Okanagan wildfire that started on Sept. 9 near Peachland has destroyed several homes and buildings, and has forced over 1,500 residents to evacuate. “The smoke from the fires is expected to continue settling in the southern portions of the west and east Kootenays, as well as in the Boundary region,” she said. Shaughnessy added that there are currently no fires in the Southeast Fire Centre that are any threat to the Boundary communities. “There is still a fire danger rating for the Boundary area, though most of the fire ratings are moderate to low danger rating, with some areas still labeled as high,” she concluded. “People still need to make precautions when outdoors.” Open burning and fireworks are still prohibited during this time.

City council open time capsule and environment CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

Grand Forks city councillors discussed carbon neutrality and school connection grants during the city council primary meeting on Sept. 4. Road conditions and infrastructure Michael Trickey of Strategic Infrastructure Management Inc. made a presentation to council regarding a report on the conditions of the City of Grand Forks’ roads. Trickey said that 12 kilometres of the approximately 70 kilometres of roads in Grand Forks either need to be rebuilt or resurfaced. See page 1 of this issue. Time Capsule The City of Grand Forks opened a time capsule prior to the city council’s regular meeting on Sept. 4. The capsule has been stored in a vault in Grand Forks City Hall for the last 25 years. Items found inside included a VHS, some floppy disks and school yearbooks from 1987. Mayor Brian Taylor noted that they would consider creating their own time capsule to be opened 25 years later. Video of the opening of the time capsule can be seen online at Summer nephelometer study The summer nephelometer study has now concluded and the final report will be presented to the Environment Committee at their Sept. 20 meeting. “Summer student Jordan Andrews did an exceptional job,” said Coun. Cher Wyers. The air quality study began in June and had Andrews drive around Grand Forks in a hybrid vehicle using the nephelometer to measure air quality. The nephelometer is an instrument that measures particulate matter in the air. Reposting of animal control position The city and the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) are still requesting proposals for the position of animal control and regulation. This position also includes animal shelter operations in the Boundary Animal Service area. Taylor noted due to lack of responses to the previous posting, the city would be reposting the animal control contract proposal. Grand Forks logo on ice The City of Grand Forks will have renewed their support

for the Grand Forks Border Bruins by placing a city logo on the ice at Grand Forks Arena. The logo amounts to $500. Carbon Neutral Kootenay City council received the staff report in regards to the Carbon Neutral Kootenay Group Plan Energy Audit that would have staff complete the 2012 energy audit for $3,600. Originally, the cost for the audit was billed at $25,000 and council decided to move all carbon neutral projects to 2013. “We have a deal here that looks too good to be true,” said Taylor. “But if you read it, if you join this carbon neutral group, instead of costing us enormous money, we can get it done for $3,600.” Taylor noted that the proposal includes the grouping of other municipalities, including Fernie, Sparwood, Salmo and Nelson. “It’s an important aspect of getting together and understanding how efficient our building and parts are,” Taylor added. “What we get for the cost will tell us how efficient our buildings are.” New deputy finance officer City of Grand Forks Chief Financial Officer Cecile Arnott has announced her resignation. Arnott will be replacing Rossland’s Chief Administrative Officer Victor Kumar, who will also be resigning. Arnott’s last day will be Friday, Sept. 14. Replacing Arnott is Roxanne Shepherd effective Monday, Sept. 17. School connections grant City council will support School District 51’s (SD51) application for the School Community Connections Funding for the upgrading of an existing storage shed. The storage shed was constructed at Perley Elementary School and is being used for storage by various community groups that use the school grounds, including youth soccer and slow-pitch. “I support this because it’s great that they’re going ahead with completing it,” said Taylor. “It makes it more accessible and more use can come from it on the school grounds.” The grant is for $12,500 and will go towards a washroom, shelving and security. The washroom facility within the storage shed would be for public use when the Perley school grounds are being used outside of school hours.

Expert Ken Dodds Realtor and Property Manager


I am moving for a new job, but want to keep my house here, so I need to rent it out. What is the beneÀt to having a property manager? What do they do and what are my obligations as the home owner?

The beneÀt to having a Property Manager is that you have a licensed person who understands the Residential Tenancy Act of BC and is able to act in your best interests to ensure rent is paid and the property remains in the same or better condition then when you vacated it. The Property Manager also screens prospective tenants to help ensure that persons who are placed in your property have references of good reputation and have not been evicted from properties in the past for violating the Residential Tenancy Act of BC. The screening may also include a credit check. Your responsibility as a homeowner is to ensure that the property you rent is up to a proper state of repair, which includes cleanliness. Owners are responsible for repair of appliances that are included in the rent as well as repairs to leaking plumbing and other parts of the home that form an integral part of its structure. At times your home may need a major repair made such as a roof or sundeck replacement. If you have moved out of town, province or the country your Property Manager would keep you appraised of these situations with photos and repair quotes/costs.

Grand Forks’ Jason Gross has recently been diagnosed with a bone marrow disorder called Myelofibrosis. The treatment for this disorder is to harvest stem cells from a donor’s bloodstream and implant them into Gross’ bone marrow. In order to effectively treat this condition, a donor with a genetic match to Jason must be found. A donor of Jewish decent is most likely to be genetically compatible with Jason, although donors of any race may be found to be a good match. Donors must be between 19 and 50 years of age. Donation of stem cells does not require surgery or removal of bone marrow. Donor compatibility is initially determined through a simple saliva test. Jason’s condition is rapidly progressing and his doctor feels

that he has two to three years to live in the absence of a stem cell transplant. Until a transplant becomes possible, Jason is having bi-weekly blood transfusions. He is requiring a lot of blood, so a local blood drive may be organized this fall. Even under ideal circumstances, a stem cell transplant is high risk for the recipient. There is a 10 per cent chance that it will fail and Jason will succumb to Myelofibrosis. There is a 40 per cent chance that he will succumb to complications of the treatment. Jason is going for 100 per cent success. Our goal is for Jason to overcome Myelofibrosis and live a long and healthy life. For those interested in possibly becoming a stem cell donor, please contact the following sites: For Canadians Google “Canadian Blood Services Stem Cell Donor� and for Americans, “Be The Match Stem Cell Donor.� For all other nationalities Google Bone Marrow Donation in, and add your country.

The Grand Forks Choral Society’s Christmas concerts on Dec. 8 and 9, entitled “Peace on Earth,� will be dedicated to the theme of peace. In addition to Christmas favourites, central to the program will be music that reflects our personal striving towards inner peace and harmonious relationships and more broadly, a more tolerant, just and non-violent world. Featured guests, such as the Men’s Doukhobor Choir, will add their voices to the concert’s invocation to peace. Another featured guest to the concert will be the newly formed “Peace Choir.� Under the auspices of the non-profit

society The Second Street Singers and director Joan Thompson, the Peace Choir extends an invitation to all adults in the community who enjoy singing, can make a two-month commitment to a group of singers and are inspired by the opportunity to sing for peace. The group will be meeting every second Tuesday night from 7 to 8:30 p.m. beginning Tuesday, Sept. 25 at Studio A, 7330 2nd Street. If you are interested in lending your voice to peace, and this year’s community Christmas choral offering, more information can be obtained by calling 250-666-011or emailing Please call to pre-register in advance of the first rehearsal on Tuesday, Sept. 25.

New Routine

School is back in session and summer is rapidly coming to a close, with autumn just around the corner we may find that we have more time on our hands. What will you do with the extra time to stay active and motivated? The key to long term patience and energy is to take some time for you each day. Participating in something fulfilling or stimulating can help keep us happy and healthy and bring a sense of overall wellbeing. It has been said that “a change is as good as a rest” So think outside the box and try something new this year. Here are just a few ideas.

CBAL and Black Press again team for Reach-A-Reader COLUMBIA BASIN ALLIANCE FOR LITERACY Submitted

The Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy (CBAL), a non-profit charity, joins with Black Press for the second annual Reach-A-Reader campaign on Wednesday, Oct. 10. On Wednesday, Oct. 10, when you buy the Grand Forks Gazette from CBAL and Gazette staff and volunteers at select locations around town, all funds go to supporting literacy programs in that community. “The Reach-A-Reader campaign is an important way for us to promote our region-wide commitment to building literacy skills and healthy learning communities,” said Ali Wassing, CBAL executive director. This joint campaign demonstrates Black Press’ dedication to building literacy skills in the communities it serves and helping CBAL stretch its reach. Reading is at the heart of CBAL’s drive to help citizens improve literacy skills, engage in life-long learning and increase their confidence to get involved in the community. “We have 16 co-ordinators delivering services in 77 communities,” said Desneiges Profili, CBAL West Kootenay and Boundary regional program manager. “Their work with children, adults, families and seniors to build reading, writing, numeracy, computer and workplace skills are in demand. Fundraisers, such as our Reach-AReader campaign, help support communities to meet this increasing need.” CBAL is working hard to expand services to meet growing and changing needs in communities across the region. In addition to regional funding received from Columbia Basin Trust, Selkirk College, College of the Rockies and the Province of British Columbia, local partnerships and fundraising campaigns are critical to developing

more community-led programs targeting local needs. The Reach-A-Reader campaign demonstrates this shared commitment. “We partner with businesses, community organizations, libraries, schools and colleges to help meet demand for our services,” said Betty Knight, regional program manager, East Kootenay. “Getting the communities involved in supporting us through the partnership with Black Press and the Reach-A-Reader campaign takes our message to the heart of the communities we serve.” Over the last 10 years, CBAL has delivered an average of 230 programs to 7,000 participants each year. Positive feedback, living examples of the benefits and


community response have been very supportive. Participants can choose from a variety of programs such as: Love 2 Learn, Young Parents Education Program, Cyber Seniors and English as a Second Language. You can make a difference in your local community. Participate in the Reach-A-Reader campaign by purchasing the Grand Forks Gazette on Oct. 10, volunteering to sell papers, or simply spreading the word as a campaign champion. To get involved, contact the Grand Forks Gazette at 250-442-2191 or Sheila Dobie, community literacy coordinator for Grand Forks at or visit

Bossburg is a ghost town in Stevens County, Wash., and is located on the east bank of the Columbia River just south of the Canadian border and about 32.19 kilometres (20 miles) north of Colville. In 1888, silver was discovered in the hills above the northern part of the Columbia River. The Young America mine was established and drew miners and their families. Soon the steady increase in population prompted the development of a small town. A cable ferry, known as the Young America Landing, shuttled prospectors and freight wagons, bound for mining fields in British Columbia, across the Columbia River. There was no railroad into the Boundary area at that time so travelers went via Spokane, Wash. to Bossburg from where they went by stage the balance of the way. Passengers had their choice of two stage lines: The Spokane Falls and Northern Railway’s trains were met by E.D. Morrison’s stage and Henderson and Martin’s Stage. After a tortuous journey, including crossing the Columbia River by ferry, they proceeded to Canada, crossing at Hall’s Ferry or Joseph Baulne’s and again at Edward’s Ferry, about 6.44 kilometres (four miles) from Cascade toward Grand Forks. On the return trip stages left Grand Forks at 4 a.m. to meet the 11 a.m. train in Bossburg. Around the same time, the Chamber of Commerce in Spokane was encouraging miners heading north to use the new Spokane route. It claimed that outfits could purchase all their supplies in Spokane and that the prices would be such that money will be saved, even though duty must be paid at the line. “It may be stated as a fact beyond contradiction that Spokane undersells the coast cities on almost every article that a prospector needs and has a better assortment of supplies, as the city has been the headquarters for prospectors for many years and her dealers have gained experience in the outfitting business,” it said. A new stage line was eventually formed, using six Con-

corde stages. Unlike the heavy Conestoga bodies, the Concords were designed for mountain use. The coaches were low to the ground, with a light upper structure and pulled by teams of four horses. A hostler would lead the teams out to the stages only once the baggage had been secured and the passengers and driver were safely seated. Once harnessed to the stage, the reins were given to the driver and he could release the brake. The stage horses often leaped and reared at the start of a trip but settled into a smooth trot once they were underway. The whip rarely had to be used to encourage them, as they knew the next station meant a good feed and a warm stable. Traveling horseshoers with portable forges visited the stage stations regularly. An excellent example of this type of stage can be seen at the Boundary Museum in Grand Forks. Originally restored in 1955 by Jim Bush and others of Midway, the Bossburg stage once again received a new lease on life when in 2011, the Boundary Woodworker’s Guild teamed up with the Boundary Museum Society to do a complete restoration of it. The stagecoach made its debut at the Grand Forks and District Fall Fair this past weekend.

Thank You Grand Forks A lot of people will complain about a small town and say that everyone knows your business. Though that may true and may be a bit of an irritation from time to time, the upside is that you won’t find a more supportive or loving community.

We have seen this rallying support firsthand with Bruce’s recent skydiving accident. Our store, Sunshine Valley Appliance, has been inundated with well-wishers, offering those warm embraces, words of encouragement, prayers and genuine offers of assistance. It truly boggles the mind how open and generous this community is. Bruce and I have raised our family here, been a part of the business community for over 20 years and in so doing have met or dealt with the majority of our Grand Forks citizens at some point or another. We never realized just how important these associations are until now and we are so proud to be part of this little town. In regards to Bruce and his current status, his recovery will be slow and arduous but your kind words, thoughts and prayers have a very real impact.

The readers read, they considered and they voted. Author Rita Moir’s The Third Crop: A personal and historical journey into the photo albums and shoeboxes of the Slocan Valley 1800s to early 1940s (Sono Nis Press 2011) is the book to read in 2012, according to Kootenay book-lovers who took part in the 2012 One Book, One Kootenay (OBOK) reader’s choice event. OBOK is an annual project of the Kootenay Library Federation. It was close, says OBOK organizer Helen Graham. “It was an exciting, neck-and-neck race. I couldn’t call it until the last of the 19 participating libraries in the Kootenay Library Federation weighed in. All three books were popular choices but in the end Rita’s really spoke to the majority of OBOK readers,” she said. Moir’s beautiful book of image and essay about the history of the Slocan Valley reflects sentiments both local and universal. In The Third Crop, Moir embarks on a personal journey through memorabilia found in private albums, dusty shoeboxes, and community archives, skillfully and passionately recounting the stories of an era. More than 180 historic photographs are beautifully juxtaposed with contemporary images of the valley. For anyone

Moir is delighted that The Third Crop got the nod. “Hundreds of people contributed to this book during the years of research. Molly Hufty, whose recall was phenomenal and who just died this summer; Ray Kosiancic, who inspired the book’s title when he spoke of bounty and hard work and luck; all the families and all the archivists, volunteer and professional, and the entire team at Sono Nis Press, that’s who made this book what it is,” says Moir. “I’m deeply gratified that people throughout our region look at The Third Crop and see the book for what it is, a story of the ancestry of place, the story of what makes a rural community.” In October, Moir will embark on a multi-library tour sponsored by the Kootenay Library Federation, Columbia Basin Trust and the host libraries. To find out when she will be at a library near you go to, ask at your library, or watch for an announcement in your local newspaper. One Book, One Kootenay is a regionwide book club that celebrates the work of the talented writers living in the Kootenay Boundary. Tom Wayman’s collection of short stories, Boundary Country and the memoir Yes Sister, No Sister by Jennifer Craig were also shortlisted this year. All three authors were celebrated at the OBOK launch in Nelson this spring and appeared at solo readings across the Kootenays through the summer.

Winners of the FASD essay writing contest Top left: FASD essay winner Evan Gorman (13 to 15 years) and runner-up Jaclyn Salter. Middle: Back Row: Zinaya Lawson (YSHIFT), Riley Chapman (Winner 16 to 20 years $150), Becky Deane (adult mentor YSHIFT), Jessi Bryan (peer mentor, Baby’s Best Chance), Jacob Noseworthy (YSHIFT), Laranna Androsoff (winner 21 to 29 years). Front Row: Holden Johnston, Jodi Koftinow (peer mentor, Baby’s Best Chance), Kayla Hahn (peer mentor, Baby’s Best Chance) and Cynthia Garnett, (program co-ordinator, Baby’s Best Chance). Bottom: Ava Stellinga, another runner-up in the 16 to 20 years category.


Last winter, the Early Years team that meets monthly at the Glanville Centre (in Grand Forks) to organize programs and activities for families of young children decided to take a different approach to the Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD) prevention and awareness. Instead of just creating awareness this past Sept. 9 for FASD Awareness Day, they would develop activities that would continue throughout the year. So this past spring, the peer mentors of the Baby’s Best Chance program decided to approach the YSHIFT (youth committee of the Phoenix Foundation) and see if they would sponsor a FASD essay-writing contest. They hoped to improve community awareness to the causes, effects, and personal and social outcomes of FASD in Canada. They believed that with youth and families researching the topic and community media printing the stories, our knowledge of FASD could improve. Unfortunately, we know that some peers and family members still encourage women to drink during their pregnancies and we are hoping to stop this practice of telling women that one or a few drinks, now and then, are OK. Our intention is that it becomes normal for pregnant women and women in their child bearing years (who are trying to or hoping to conceive) to abstain from alcohol. This needs to be supported by all aspects of our communities if we are to be entirely successful at changing these old practices and beliefs.

How can I get my picky child to enjoy a wider variety of foods?

Picky eaters are going through a normal developmental stage, exerting control over their environment and expressing concern about trusting the unfamiliar. Many picky eaters also prefer a “separate compartmented plate,” where one type of food doesn’t touch another. Just as it takes numerous repetitions for advertising to convince an adult consumer to buy, it takes most children 8-10 presentations of a new food before they will openly accept it. Rather than simply insist your child eat a new food, try the following: ➦ Offer a new food only when your child is hungry and rested. ➦ Present only one new food at a time. ➦ Make it fun: present the food as a game, a play-Ålled experience. Or cut the food into unusual shapes. ➦ Serve new foods with favorite foods to increase acceptance. ➦ Eat the new food yourself; children love to imitate. ➦ Have your child help to prepare foods. Often they will be more willing to try something when they helped to make it. ➦ Limit beverages. Picky eaters often Åll up on liquids instead. ➦ Limit snacks to two per day. – from Success By 6 supports parents and communities in creating healthy, nurturing environments for our youngest children, so that by age 6, they are physically, socially, and emotionally ready to succeed in school.

KARL YU Gazette Editor

The finishing touches on Habitat for Humanity Boundary’s seven-unit multiplex in Grand Forks are being completed and the residents are expected to move in within a few weeks. A grand opening was held at the 72nd Avenue residence on Sept. 8 and for James Elliott, Alan Sandner, Mike Windsor, Chris Caruso, Charlie Kain, Brad Goosen and Brogan Beliveau, it was a chance to realize a dream to be homeowners. Elliott was overwhelmed by the fact that the dream was now a reality. “Wow! It’s amazing, like I said (during his grand opening speech), I never thought I’d be a homeowner at 25,” Elliott explained. “It’s an investment in my future; I have an asset now, a form of equity.” Beliveau was also happy to own his own place and said his unit was “awesome.” “There’s a lot of room. I like the floors, the two rooms and it’s got a big bathroom,” Beliveau said. “It’s a first time that I’m a homeowner and I’m really happy about it and I think everyone’s going to have a really good time,” Sander opined. “It’s really good,” said Windsor. “I can’t wait to live here.” Habitat for Humanity’s homeownership program gives individuals and families in financially vulnerable situations the opportunity to own a home with no down payment and a no-interest mortgage and in return the homeowners to be are expected to assist by putting in “sweat equity hours.” “We had to put in 250 sweat equity hours and then a family member could help us with the other 250 for 500 total,”

said Caruso. “It was anything from sweeping to clean up and landscaping.” “I’m used to doing buildings and working on stuff like this and it was fun working with Rick Friesen (Habitat for Humanity Boundary executive director) and working with the people that were around. It was a really good experience,” Kain said. The multiplex is situated close to Grand Forks’ downtown core and that was convenient said Goosen. “It’s going to be nice to go to the farmers’ market and my nana’s close by. It’s also easy access with the grocery store being downtown,” explained Goosen. The multiplex also represented a pair of firsts for Habitat for Humanity Boundary – it is the first affiliate in Canada to accept single men with disabilities as partners and the house is Habitat for Humanity Boundary’s first project that is “Built Green” certified, adhering to environmentally responsible standards. “The Built Green was more just a learning curve,” Friesen explained when asked about the challenges Built Green presented. “Every step of construction we’re always thinking, ‘How can we make this air tight?’ because we have the heat recovery ventilation system, so with that, we don’t want any leakage. That’s extra sealant around windows and doors, blinds and walls.” The project has come a long way according to Friesen. “In the beginning it was pretty overwhelming and daunting and I had a million things I had to learn but as we took it one small piece at a time it started to come together and it’s been a huge learning curve and I’m pretty happy that in the near future, I’ll be taking a break from it,” he said.

No two kids are alike. That’s what makes teaching both a challenge and a joy. It’s also why each student needs – and deserves – more of our time. Teachers will be working hard to give them that time. And together with parents, we’ll be urging government to help. Years of cuts have led to overcrowded classes. Our kids desperately need smaller classes, better support for students with special needs, and more one-on-one time. Every child matters. And every year counts.

Smaller classes, better support for kids with special needs, and more one-on-one time. THAT’S WHAT OUR STUDENTS DESERVE.

Hi Grand Forks! We’ve got some very exciting things happening at the library in the next couple of weeks, and I’m going to get to that in just a moment – but first, let me just start out by introducing myself. My name is Avi, and I’m the new library director. Although I’m a second-generation librarian, by the time I entered the library workforce, these public institutions were already well into the process of redefining themselves. I belong to a new generation of librarians – those who believe that libraries have a role to play that starts with our core service (lending out books) but then catapults far beyond that, into community development, participatory learning, etc. What I mean by all this, is that I’m very interested in the role that the Grand Forks and District Public Library can play in building community resilience. I’m trying to answer questions such as, “How can the library contribute to a thriving Grand Forks economy?” and “What gaps

Grand Forks Recreation

A pool might not be the first place you think of going when you’re looking to shape up and slim down but perhaps it should be. No other workout burns calories, boosts metabolism and firms every muscle in your body better than a swimming workout – it doesn’t put stress on your joints either. The body-shaping benefits of swimming workouts are the result of a perfect storm of calorie burn and muscle recruitment. An easy swim burns around 500 calories an hour, while a vigorous effort can torch almost 700 and because water is nearly 800 times denser than air, each kick, push, and pull is like a mini resistance workout for your entire body – especially your core, hips, arms, shoulders, and glutes. So in addition to blasting calories as you swim, you build lean muscle, which ignites your metabolism so that you burn more calories once you’ve showered and dried off. The irony is that while swimming makes you lean and mean, it’s also kind to your body. Water basically neutralizes gravity, so you become virtually weightless when immersed, giving your joints a much-needed vacation. *** The Grand Forks Aquatic Centre offers lap swimming Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings from 6 to 8:45 a.m. and again from 11:15 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Tuesday and Thursday

Bruins seek billet families KARL YU Gazette Editor

The Grand Forks Border Bruins are seeking people to act as billet families for the upcoming Kootenay International Junior Hockey League (KIJHL) season. According to Michelle Odland, team treasurer and billet co-ordinator, billets act as a surrogate family for players from abroad and the experience can be wonderful and fulfilling. “Many of our billet families have provided a home away from home for players coming throughout Canada and the United States, and even from Russia – these players range in age from 16 to 20 years,” Odland explained. She said that some hold part-time jobs while trying to pursue their hockey-playing dream and for many, it is their first time away from home and players in that situation have to adjust to new surroundings, including community and school and these challenges must be met without the support of immediate family and friends. “In view of the potential stress this may present to young players, the role of the billet family, and the security their home provides, is very important,” said Odland, adding that the bond between billet family and player can continue long after the player moves on. New Grand Forks Border Bruins’ head coach Nick Deschenes billeted with families in his playing days and agreed. “As a player that billeted with three different families during my junior hockey, I still keep in

touch with those families,” Deschenes said. “It’s just a very rewarding experience, so we really encourage people. It helps the community, helps get these boys in town, it helps put an entertaining product on the ice in Grand Forks.” The Border Bruins require billet families to provide a bed and bedroom, with access to washroom and laundry facilities as well as meals to players and in return, families are compensated with $500 a month per player for the season and tickets to home games. To become a billet family, contact Odland at or at 250-443-1245.

New coach hoping for respectability KARL YU Gazette Editor

While the Grand Forks Border Bruins only had one win last season, new head coach/ GM Nick Deschenes hopes to have the team on the road to respectability. “I’m really excited. I think having been there last season for a couple of games and seeing the potential that is here in Grand Forks, I’m really excited to come in and utilize all the resources that are there and to help rebuild the team,” Deschenes said. “Hopefully we can turn things around and move in a positive direction.” Deschenes said that the Grand Forks Arena rink is small but that could be beneficial, stating that the 1994 New York Rangers practised at a rink in Rye, N.Y. that was the same

width – the local rink measures 54.86 metres x 24.38 metres. “They (the Rangers) all admitted that when it came to a real ice surface, it felt like they had more time. So from a developmental standpoint and skill wise, I think a smaller rink can really speed up the thought process and enhance skills,” explained Deschenes. “I think that’s why, traditionally, the team (Grand Forks) is a little bit better on the road. Because with a little more room, things seem to happen a little bit slower but it’s because they practise at that condensed ice surface.” With only one win last season and eight wins the season before, Deschenes talked about changes that had to be made. “The whole culture of the team has to change. There has to be a certain expectation for success and we have to have a common goal as far as what

is the ultimate objective of the team,” Deschenes said. “For me coming in, I’m going to stress player development and so, with that in place, it’s like, ‘What do we need to improve on in order to promote that and enhance that?’ so I think establishing a better relationship with Grand Forks minor hockey, with the high school as well, working within the community; there are a lot of things that can be done that will attract better players, based on the fact that we’ll be better organized and be able to present a more fulfilling experience that will benefit anyone that comes to Grand Forks, regardless of the score on the board.” The Grand Forks Border Bruins will open their regular season campaign this Friday against the Beaver Valley Nitehawks at Grand Forks Arena.

Then there is the excitement about the fall fairs scattered around the countryside. The Grand Forks and District Fall Fair has just finished, and this weekend is the fair in Rock Creek. It amazes me how many people volunteer at these fairs. Volunteers really are the backbone of these and many other community events. From coaching sports teams to teaching Sunday School, running community clubs to food banks and volunteer fire departments, there are many, many community events and programs that run on volunteers. According to Statistics Canada data for 2010, it has been estimated that 13.3 million Canadians or 47 per cent of the population have volunteered 2.1 billion hours. Each person who volunteered did an average of 13 hours per month. Nearly 24 million people, or 84 per cent of the adult population, made donations of $10.6 billion to charities or non-profit organizations. That works out to $446 per donor. Wow! Most people volunteer for the sake of helping The family of Clive Sykes would like to thank everyone that helped us during a difficult time, especially Donna & Keiron others and the joy of giving. They also care about Jenkinson, and Anna Lactin for organizing the Memorial, the event or cause.

It feels like fall is in the air, crisp and cool with the possibility of overnight frost at higher elevations. Fall usually brings a mixture of feelings for me. There is reRICK STEINGARD lief that forest fire season is winding down. There is anticipation, as the beginning of the school year still feels like the beginning of the new year, not January. There is accomplishment in digging up a garden. I enjoy the look of the Larch trees as they turn gold and as the needles fall, they make the driveway turn into a golden carpet.
