Thieves and vandals have been helping themselves to the donations left at the Westbridge Thrift Store. Items have gone missing, both from the donations left outside the store as well as from the outbuilding used to display some of their non-clothing items. Some items that have been stolen have not been cheap either – Westbridge Community Club president Del Gal had his ride-on lawnmower stolen recently. The volunteers, who operate the thrift store as a way to raise funds to maintain the community hall, are getting frustrated. Volunteer Sara Zier said that bags are ripped open and, after the vandals high-grade the donations, what is left lies exposed to the elements and often becomes only a liability for the group because they then have to transport it to the transfer station. The situation will only get worse when the Westbridge transfer station is closed, meaning the garbage will have to be hauled further, plus the com-

Nicki, Jordyn and Brandi were enjoying the ice in the Midway arena at the Lion’s Fun Skate last Sunday when gravity started to kick in.

For a number of years now, the Kettle River Lions Club has offered a free skating opportunity in Midway. Once again they have come through for the West Boundary communities. The arena was booked last Sunday, Oct. 28 from 2 to 4 p.m. Hot dogs and hot chocolate were provided. According to the co-ordinator of the event, Margaret Young of Midway, this is the seventh year for the family fun skate. President Stephen Kirkham says the club plans to

munity group will be subject to tipping fees. The club is considering their options: perhaps installing surveillance cameras, or only receiving items when the store is open on Fridays and Saturdays. Zier said the problem has been ongoing for the past four or five months but the theft of the lawnmower really pushed some buttons.

loans for all purposes

continue the tradition for many years to come. This is an opportunity to come out, have some fun, meet Lions members, and find out more about the beneficial activities of this group – most of which happen behind the scenes. The Lions have begun collecting non-perishable food items for the Christmas hampers. Those wishing to write a cheque, every bit helps, may send it c/o Treasurer Les Jackman, Box 202, Rock Creek, B.C. V0H 1Y0.

She said the group is more than willing to open the store privately if someone is in need of clothing in these tough times and with winter coming on. Another option they have discussed is to install a heavy-duty steel deposit bin. “But it is exasperating that we have to shell out all that money just to feel protected,” said Zier.

Chamber meets

It’s Snowing!

BOT okays courthouse site for meeting

In mid-October the Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce (BCRCC) sent a request to the City of Greenwood asking permission to use the courthouse in City Hall for a meeting of BCRCC stakeholders on the evening of Nov. 14. By the time council had met to consider the issue at their regular meeting on Oct. 22, they had also received a letter from Board of Trade (BOT) president Dave Evans stating their position that the BCRCC should seek permission to hold a meeting within the jurisdiction of the BOT as set by Industry Canada – the body that registers chambers of commerce and boards of trade. Councillor Colleen Lang urged council to defer to the Board of Trade. “The chamber should first get permission from the BOT,” she argued. “The way it stands now, the regional chamber or any other chamber has no jurisdiction to operate within the Greenwood area.” “I have no problem collaborating with the BCRCC at all,” Evans said. “However, they don’t operate here and if they want to have a meeting it is just common courtesy to get ahold of us so we can give our permission.” BCRCC Executive Director Sarah Winton told The Times that the purpose they wanted to use the space for is legally allowed. “The regional chamber is hosting a meeting of their regional stakeholders and Greenwood is the halfway point,” explained Winton. “It’s a regional meet-

ing, Greenwood is in the middle – it only makes sense that we have it there. “It really has no impact on the Board of Trade,” said Winton. “We are not there soliciting memberships, we aren’t there to engage with the community; we are there to have a meeting.” “It would have been prudent for the BCRCC to contact the BOT and let them know what they are up to and take it from there,” said Mayor Nipper Kettle. “I don’t think the BOT would have any problems with it. I just think it is a formality that they should have went and talked to them first. And if they had any issues with it then they could have come to talk to us.” Councillor Darla Ashton, the city’s representative to the BCRCC, argued that Winton had sought legal advice and been told that a meeting of the type planned was permissible. Councillor Barry Noll proposed, and council voted approval in principal, to the BCRCC having their meeting in the courthouse providing they contact and confirm it with the BOT. A week later, on Monday, Oct. 29 Evans told The Times that the BOT had decided to allow them in. “It is a private meeting, it has nothing to do with the public,” said Evans. “The main concerns were soliciting businesses and the public involvement. Apparently it’s a central location and they would like to have a meeting of their stakeholders. So that’s okay.”

Too much noise, says letter

At their regular meeting on Oct. 22, Greenwood council received a MIDWAY letter of complaint signed by 12 residents who wanted action taken on an ongoing problem of noise coming from a residence at 101 South Copper Street. The letter said that loud music had been playing outside late at night and into the morning all summer long – not only on weekends but often on weekdays as well. The letter also complained that callers phoning RCMP dispatch in Kelowna were told that local RCMP would not be dispatched unless it was a matter of life or death. Council members were also given a copy of Bylaw 469, the 1982 noise bylaw that sets a maximum fine of $2,000 and minimum of $100 for noise infractions. Interim CAO Dan Zabinsky reported that he had contacted RCMP S/Sgt Jim Harrison, NCO of the Boundary Detachment in Grand Forks, and was told that if the city has a municipal ticketing system in place, the RCMP will enforce the bylaw. “So he sent Constable Rob Morrison down this afternoon (Oct. 22) to pick up a municipal ticketing book, a copy of our noise bylaw and a copy of our municipal ticketing bylaw,” reported Zabinsky. “The constable attended the premises and told the people basically that if there are any other problems that they have to come to they will be charged and taken to provincial court.” Regarding the complaint that dispatch would not forward calls to local officers, Zabinsky said that Harrison told him that he had called Kelowna dispatch and from now on every complaint will be forwarded to the member who will decide whether they will attend something or not. *** Resident Donna Gunther came to ask for and receive permission to use the official city logo on T-Shirts and other products she will be selling when she opens a gift store. *** Council voted to ask staff to get more information about a notice they received that Greyhound

Bus has applied to the BC PassenLIBRARY ger Transportation Board to reduce service on the route from Kelowna to the Alberta border. “That’s a serious concern,” said Mayor Nipper Kettle. “Before I moved here I lived up north where they have the Highway of Tears. Reducing services will obviously result in more hitchhikers and young people at risk.” *** Councillor Darla Ashton asked if Zabinsky could try to set up a meeting with demolition derby organizers. She said follow-up is needed on concerns of neighbours who live in the area. *** Kettle told the public meeting that the city has not yet hired a new CAO. “It’s ongoing work. Our first go around we had 26 applications; this time we had around 16. Our choices are getting limited. We are going to have a meeting of council in the next day or two to discuss some of our options.” *** Council passed final reading on the permissive property tax exemption bylaw that exempts churches, the Legion, museum and Masonic Temple from 2013 taxes. *** Changes to the Recreation Commission bylaw passed three readings. The changes will remove the requirement for representation from specific community groups and lowers the minimum number of commission members from seven to five. *** As was reported last week in The Times, council voted to begin a month long consultation with residents on options to cover the costs of garbage collection. “This is something that many of us have been pressing for quite some time to address some of the garbage issues that we have,” said Kettle. The options include moving from a user-pay tag-a-bag system to one that sees taxes collected to pay for the service.

Jewelry sales support African women Just in time for the gift-giving season, the Boundary Gogos are excited to offer Kazuri Jewellery as a fundraiser for the Stephen Lewis Grandmother to Grandmother Campaign. “It is so important to us that we have the opportunity to sell the jewelry because it is a shining example of women in Africa being employed. They earn higher than average wages as well as benefits,” Gogos organizer Gay Hoon told The Times. “The whole thing is dignity for African women, which is what Stephen Lewis is all about.” The Stephen Lewis Foundation (SLF) works with community-level organizations which are turning the tide of HIV/AIDS in Africa by providing care and support to women, orphaned children, grandmothers and people living with HIV and AIDS. Since 2003, the SLF has funded over 700 initiatives, partnering with grassroots community-based organizations that are the lifeline for their communities.

Kazuri is the Swahili word for “small and Kazuri prices range from $15 to $48. Hoon also reported that three members beautiful”. African women in a fair-trade, healthy workplace make each hand paint- of the Boundary Gogos recently attended ed bead. The brand started in 1975, when Lady Susan Wood began making beads in a small shed in her back garden in Kenya. She hired a couple of women who were disadvantaged. They realized there were lots more women who needed employment and it just grew from there. Today the fair-trade workshop employs over 300 marginalized women, who earn higher than average rates of pay and enjoy excellent working conditions. Peggy Edwards and Margaret Thompson set up a not-for-profit company Kazuri Jewellery: The Grandmother Connection (KJGC) in 2007 to make the jewellery available as a fundraiser for grandmothers groups across Canada. KJGC donates ALL profits to the Stephen Lewis Foundation. Boundary Gogos will be selling at the Greenwood Library annual Arts and Crafts Fair on Nov. 17.

the first conference of Interior grandmother groups in Kamloops. She said that about 50 people showed up for the daylong conference on Tuesday, October 23, 2012. Keynote speaker Zahra Mohamed, an African woman who works with the SLF in Ontario, joined them. “Zahra was very emphatic about how much we are helping and how the Grandmothers in Africa are just overwhelmed,” remarked Hoon, “and how thrilled they are getting so much support from Canadian Grandmothers and Grandmothers.” Groups shared their experiences and knowledge about fundraising. The Boundary Gogos started in 2009. Hoon says they now have nine members; three attended the Kamloops conference: Linda Anderson-Thibault, Trichia Purdy from Grand Forks and Hoon. The Boundary Gogos are at many craft fairs throughout the year where they fundraise by selling handmade crafts and spread the good news and hope that the SLF brings to African families. Hoon reported that the group recently sent $1,100 to the Grandmothers Campaign.

Car accident tragically claims life

Christmas Craft Fair Saturday, Nov 17 ~ 10 am - 3 pm McArthur Centre

The West Kootenay Traffic Services (WKTS) office of the RCMP reports that there was fatal car MIDWAY accident just south of Beaverdell last week. Both Midway police and West Boundary Highway Rescue responded to the single vehicle incident at about 7:30 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 25. “Initial investigation revealed the vehicle, a 1991 Olds Cutlass, was travelling northbound along Hwy 33 and left the roadway on the right shoulder over an embankment,” said RCMP Sgt. Derrick Donovan, head of WKTS. The sole occupant was transported to Kelowna by BC Ambulance and later died from her injuries. The BC Coroners Service has confirmed her identity as Sharlene Gayle Johnston, 46, from Grand Forks.

The road was closed for approximately four hours to one-lane traffic during the investigation; the BC Coroners Service and RCMP continue to investigate this incident. *** On Saturday, Oct. 27 Midway and Grand Forks RCMP received a report of a stolen Ford F350 heading south on Highway 33 from Kelowna. According to Cpl. Kevin Christensen from the Midway detachment, officers located the stolen truck at a residence located just south of Beaverdell and two people were taken into custody without incident. A charge of possession of stolen property over $5,000 is being sought against a 36-year-old Grand Forks man.

Fight the clawbacks – reduce line 234 to maximize income in retirement

Canadians age 65 and older may qualify for many valuable government bene¿ts – Old Age Security and the Age Credit are examples. However, if the income reported on line 234 of your federal income tax return is too high, these bene¿ts can be clawed back and, in some cases, forfeited altogether. This can result in the loss of thousands of dollars in bene¿ts. A look at the issue and the opportunities Avoiding clawbacks involves more than simply creating tax credits – which reduce taxes owing. It is important to look at ways to reduce reported income. However, when retirement arrives, most of the familiar deductions – such as Registered Retirement Savings Plan (RRSP) contributions, pension plan contributions, child care expenses and union dues – are no longer available. Here are two solutions for achieving this goal: 1. Carefully structure your non-registered income. Active management of income-generating investments can signi¿cantly affect the way your income is taxed, and may help reduce clawbacks. The example based on $10,000 of non-registered investment income, shows the impact of different types of investment income. As you can see in the chart, dividend income can be the least “income-friendly” to retirees because the grossed-up amount is reported on your tax return. Although the dividend tax credit provides preferential tax treatment, the grossed-up amount exaggerates the total income on line 234. To maximize bene¿ts and retirement income, you should identify investments that could be restructured for more favourable tax treatment. Examples include exploring the advantages of prescribed annuities, withdrawals from a mutual fund or segregated fund contract, or distributions from a Series T mutual fund.

2. Create dollar-for-dollar tax deductions Although most of the familiar deductions are no longer available in retirement, there are still appealing options to consider in order to generate deductions to reduce line 234 income. If you are at or near retirement and would like more information about reducing line 234 of your federal income tax return in order to avoid clawbacks and maximize your government bene¿ts, contact me, Rod Rezka at 250-495-4336.

The Predator Pee Wee House team is undefeated so far, having tied Nelson 1 with three goals apiece on Oct. 28. They have lots of home games this month: on the 4th versus Greater Trail 2 at 10 a.m., the 11th Castlegar comes in with a high noon start, on the 18th Greater Trail 1 takes to Midway ice at noon again, and on Nov. 25 they will host Nelson 2 at noon. After the month of November the Pee Wee team will only have two more regular season home games. Last, but certainly not least, are tomorrows’ superstars – the Senior Novice Predators have a home game on Nov. 11 at 3:30 p.m. when they host Osoyoos 1.

For the record

In our Oct. 25, 2012 issue an article on page A11, “WI members hear presentations” we incorrectly named Mary Cannon as the president of District WI. Mary is immediate past-president, now secretary for the organization. The current president is Norma Tilgner. We apologize for the error.

Minister of State for Small Business Naomi Yamamoto in Kamloops had announced the consultation the previous day. In-person consultations will take place around the province over the next couple of weeks, and citizens can also share their thoughts online on the BC Jobs Plan website: www.bcjobsplan. ca – or on Facebook and Twitter using: #commitment2SB

THE BOUNDARY CREEK

Rules needed The Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM), which entered into force on Aug.1, 2010, contains an absolute prohibition on the use, production, stockpiling, and transfer of cluster munitions, as well as banning assistance with any of these activities. However, Canada’s proposed implementing legislation, Bill S-10, now before the Senate, would allow activities Canadian Forces personnel that contravene the spirit and letter of the treaty. An open letter from 27 legal experts expresses concern that Article 11 of Bill S-10, will ultimately put Canada in breach of its international obligations under the Convention. Article 11 provides “exceptions” to the treaty’s provisions that would allow members of the Canadian Forces to engage in a range of activities involving use of cluster munitions – precisely the types of activities that the treaty is designed to outlaw. Specifically, provisions contained in Article 11 of Bill S-10 would allow Canadian Forces personnel, when undertaking combined operations with armed forces of non-party states (e.g. the United States), to authorize use of cluster munitions; acquire, possess or move cluster munitions; transport cluster munitions belonging to non-party states on Canadian carriers; counsel nonparty state forces to commit acts prohibited to Canada; and conspire with non-party state forces to commit acts prohibited to Canada. No such “exceptions” were required in Canada’s legislation implementing the closely analogous AntiPersonnel Mines Convention (“Landmines Treaty”). Cluster munitions are explosive weapons that release small submunitions, or “bomblets.” Because cluster bombs release many submunitions over a wide area, they can pose considerable risks to civilians. Most importantly, cluster munitions may fail to detonate, posing a risk to civilians long after a conflict has ended. If possible, for as long as possible, it would be better if we kept some rules in war. The alternative is not attractive.

tle receiving a poppy from Della Paradis, Branch #155 Poppy Campaign Chair. The poppy is an international symbol of remembrance worn to honour the war dead. Always worn on the left breast of the outer garment, the lapel poppy is normally worn throughout the whole of the remembrance period, which is from the last Friday in October to o the end of the day on Nov. 11. The mission of the Royal Canadian Legion is “to serve veterans and their dependents, to promote remembrance, and to act in the service of Canada and its communities.” The major source of funding to complete this mandate is the Poppy Campaign. More information about the poppy and remembrance can be found online at www.legion. ca

Setting the record straight Editor, The Times: The Board of Directors of the Rock Creek Fair have faced mounting criticisms over the perceived lack of openness on how the fair initiated and oversaw some major projects. My wife and I have tried to respond to these accusations through allowing the board to try to set the record straight. This has failed and we find ourselves being slandered and the object of so many accusations that I feel we must respond. All terms and work performed for the Fair was approved by the president with full knowledge of the Board. All invoices were submitted and approved by the RDKB and the board in their monthly review of the financial statements. In keeping with long established fair practices, some reimbursement cheques were signed by my wife (treasurer) and me as authorized signatories. No-one gave sec-

ond thought as all monies were subject to RDKB and board approval and backed up in the fair’s files through detailed invoices and statements. Be very clear, at no time, did we remove files from this office. We aren’t on salary and never proceeded in any manner differently than previous boards acted. We accept due criticisms, but will not accept insinuations of impropriety. We’ve always held the interests of the fair foremost in our actions and are proud of how today’s board has taken lead ensuring procedures, as they were in the past, never reoccur. We’re the focus of unfounded accusations and no longer stand passively allowing unsubstantiated remarks to go unanswered. We’ll defend our integrity and actions through every means public and legal available, but ask that people get correct facts before attacking two volunteers who simply try their best for the fair. Randy Moat, President, Westbridge

Not enough about agreement Editor, The Times: In recent days we’ve heard about the CanadaChina trade agreement, but not enough. There are lawyers who dedicate their entire careers to working with constitutional law, and there are trade experts who dedicate their careers to investment trade agreements. Just because members of the public can read the various acts that make up the Constitution or the text of an agreement such as the Canada-China FIPA, it doesn’t mean we’ll understand much about them. Gus Van Harten, on the other hand, is a global legal authority on investment trade agreements, having been on faculty at the London School of Economics and Osgoode Hall Law School at York University. Dr. Van Harten has published an open letter to Prime Minister Harper and International Trade Minister Ed Fast articulating 14 serious concerns and numerous questions about this risky treaty. Van Harten believes if ratified, it will disadvantage our country in terms of exposure to investor

Letters to the Editor Email: bctimesnews@shaw.ca

lawsuits. It will also impact provincial powers on natural resources, taxation, and land and property rights. And it will, he thinks, threaten federal legislative and judicial sovereignty. Ratification, due Nov. 1, will bind Canada for a minimum of 31 years to the seemingly dangerous and unconstitutional treaty. There have been no public hearings or provincial consultations on the treaty. With no debate scheduled before the treaty’s ratification, MP Elizabeth May called for an emergency debate, but was ignored by the Harper government. So rushed is the approach to finalizing the deal, the government will not have completed an assessment on the treaty’s environmental impacts on resource development until a week after the treaty is ratified. Van Harten says there remains two ways to delay the treaty’s ratification. Provinces go to court, calling for an injunction until the constitutional issues are resolved. Or the public can pressure federal and provincial elected officials to stop the unnecessarily speedy ratification of a dangerous and consequential trade treaty and undertake what should have been undertaken long ago: public hearings, provincial consultation and Parliamentary debate.

Tech opportunities booming

BLACK PRESS

Special to The Boundary Creek Times

“British Columbia has a ready source of great jobs and careers in technology. Our education programs need to keep up with that demand.” John Leech, Executive Director of the Applied Science Technologists and Technicians of BC (ASTTBC), explains that, “Every system we rely on – water, roads and transportation, telecommunications and Internet, hydro and

JOHN LEECH

natural gas, environment, health, forestry, and many more – utilizes engineering and applied science technology professionals working in the background. BC’s telecom and IT, animation and many other sectors produce new careers every month.” Midway Mayor Randy Kappes agrees. “As our community comes to rely more and more on the engineering side of things,” commented Randy Kappes. “As we’ve seen especially with this project with the arena where there is a huge requirement for things to be designed and engineered. I don’t imagine that’s going to decrease going forward. Even from the view of public works the importance of physics, science and math in our projects is only going to increase.” ASTTBC has more than 10,000 members currently working in thousands of careers available to graduates of two-year diploma programs available at the British Columbia Institute of Technology and other B.C. colleges and institutes. “Our members enjoy rewarding, well-paid and often recession-proof careers in public service and the private sector alike,” Leech

states. “For huge numbers of young men and women, technology is the answer. In B.C. and across Canada, technology permeates every workplace and job. We need to get capable students involved and engaged in applied sciences and head off workforce shortages by building a B.C. ‘Science and Technology Culture’.” “With all the advances that computers have been making, all those advances made in computers and medicine I think that for young people to be thinking about getting into that math and science is important,” said Greenwood Mayor Nipple Kettle. “These are the types of jobs that are going to lead to secure full-time employment for them.” Leech calls on government for renewed efforts to build student skills and confidence in math and science programming. “We especially need to interest young students in science and how things work,” Leech says. “Young students use technology every day – smart phones, iPads and computers. They play video games, even build robots.” Leech lauds the recent “Year of Science” program that encouraged students toward so-called “STEM” subjects – science, technology, engineering and math.

Citing the recent $6 million B.C. campaign to encourage careers in trades, Leech urges a similar effort to build awareness of engineering technology education and careers. “Within the trades today there is so much technology and science because everything has become so computerized,” observed BCSS sciences teacher Lisa Baia. “It is no longer only our university programs that require basic science and math skills, they are needed even in the entry trades programs because so much of it is driven by technology, so that today you need to have science and math basics for jobs that in the past didn’t require them.” BC Technology Industries Association employers like Telus and BC Hydro and many smaller technology-rich companies say the single most important position they now struggle to fill is Specialty Technician/Technologist. Even the Canadian Council of Chief Executives expressed concern that only 37 per cent of 16- to 18-yearolds were interested in taking even one post-secondary course in sciences, according to a recent Angus Reid survey. Leech says the opportunities for those seeking work in the technology field are considerable given a wave of retirements of

MAYOR RANDY KAPPES

present-generation B.C. technology professionals that is already underway. “Half of our membership is now middle-aged at 45-plus, and 22 per cent are over age 55!” he says. “Every region of B.C. shows growing demand,” Leech concludes. “New two-year technology diploma programs are still needed in the north and central B.C. However, young people are investing to travel so they can earn the necessary tech qualifications.” It would appear their investment is a smart move, as it will result in a broad range of career opportunities. Industries in all regions of B.C. support programs for local trainees to fill engineering and applied science technologist, technician and technical specialist positions.

Winter

CAR CARE Save fuel by keeping vehicle in shape Fuel is so expensive these days that all sorts of tricks are being passed along to help save any amount of the precious liquid. Winter is known to be one of the worst enemies of fuel saving motorists. How could they save more fuel? Obviously, the choice of vehicle is where to start. We are all aware that a big V8 powered, allwheel drive truck will gobble up gas so fast, its driver will have to spend a lot of money to keep it running this winter. But be also leery of some four-cylinder powered cars or trucks that are performance-oriented or others with turbo engines and all-wheel drive that may be real gas guzzlers. Saving gas means driving carefully, observing speed limits and more. Keep a careful eye on your tires’ air pressure (or even better, inflate them with nitrogen!) and don’t let the engine idle too long to warm-up the interior. Also, try not to carry too much dead weight in the trunk, only the necessary accessories to help you cope with winter’s little surprises. The best piece of advice for saving as much fuel as possible is to get the car in top shape before winter begins. That means choosing lighter engine oil, changing the air filter and having your mechanic look at the general maintenance of the whole car. Also, remember that a block heater with a timer to power it up in the middle of the night will make firing up the engine easier (and with less fuel) in the morning.

Know facts about BE CAR CARE AWARE winter tires

Fall is a very busy season for garages and mechanics as there are still many people who like to service their vehicle before the winter. While some people will make an appointment with their dealer, many others with older vehicles still rely upon their trusted mechanics to have a look at their car or truck before the cold season. Among the many points to be checked is the engine oil. For many people, oil is oil and that’s all there is to it. But for car specialists, oil is a very technical matter to handle and choosing the right oil for their customers’ cars and trucks becomes a science for them. As a matter of fact, there are so many types of engine oils on the market, that today some knowledge is required in order to keep up with all that is offered. As a motorist, you might be surprised to learn that even older engines will start and even run better with lighter oils during the cold months of winter. That’s why many car manufacturers will suggest a 5W-30 engine oil during the cold season. The number 5 identifies the lightness of the oil when it is cold, the W indicates it is designed for winter use and the 30 means that when the engine has warmed up, the oil will have thickened to a 30 weight capability. The engine will then start more easily with the light oil and will be well protected at speed as the oil thickens slightly.

Pack your trunk Because trouble comes in many shapes in the winter, you shouldn’t take any chances. Among the many items that should remain in your trunk over the winter, is a shovel. However, a full size shovel can be heavy and it can take up a lot of space in your trunk. So instead, why not buy one of those light, foldable shovels that are specifically designed to be stored in a car? Another useful item is a pair of traction devices that can come in handy in deep snow or on ice. Booster cables can also come in handy. But try to find a light product that is strong enough to handle the power surge. There are new products on the market with an electronic device that ensures you don’t confuse the poles. A small bag of sand can also come in handy, however don’t keep salt in the car. Even a small amount of salt leaking in the car will cause corrosion damage.

Keeping your car in top form is especially important in winter! See us for all your car and truck maintenance and repairs While you’re here, ask about our

“Yes dear, of course, that is why we are here”, was her reply. It seems she wanted to do something for the students in the wake of the mass murders. All she could think about was how her dogs gave her comfort. So off she went. The sign she posted beside her said, “Need love? Please pet my dogs.” You see, there is always something you can do! Relationships do not just happen. They take time and effort. Yes they are risky, but it is a risk worth taking. The creator of Peanuts said, “Life is like a 10-speed bike. Most of us have gears we never use.” Finally why not volunteer to help out in the community. Strange but true, you find yourself by giving yourself away.

DEALER WHOLESALE PRICING ON ALL IN STOCK TIRES UNTIL IT SNOWS! Raymund “Ray” Paul Nicol of Midway, B.C. passed away on October 3, 2012 at the age of 67 years. He is survived by his family, brothers and sisters, Greg (Linda) of Kamloops, Phillip of Lytton, Louise (Art) Stoll of Scotch Creek, Stephen (Katharine) of Vancouver, Matthew of Blue River, Janine (Brad) Filmer of Taylor, Teresa (David Pringle) of Westwold, Della (Willy) Faremo of Surrey, (all in B.C.), and numerous nieces and nephews, all over. Predeceased by his parents Ellen (1998), Ray (2000) and his nephew Nathan Raymund (2004). Raymund was born in Calgary and was the oldest of nine children. He was raised in Coquitlam, and being an impatient youth, he quit St. Thomas Moore high school at a young age and joined the Navy, thus beginning his seafaring adventures. In the early ’60s, Raymund graduated with honours as an Ordinary Seaman with RCN from HMCS Cornwallis, near Digby, Nova Scotia before moving back home and attending Simon Fraser University. The rest of the ’60s and ’70s were spent travelling, furthering his naval career and education, including securing his European ticket. Ray worked as a mate on deep sea tankers as well as with Dome Petroleum, on an icebreaker in the Canadian arctic. Most of his tanker time was on 100,000 ton ships running between the Middle East and Europe. He actively pursued his passions for automobiles, motorcycles, and scuba diving. The next few decades Raymund transitioned naturally from land to sea to land again. He started doing his “horse thing” in Sumas, B.C. while having many adventures during his tenure with Seaspan, before Ànally settling in Midway. He will be remembered as an avid reader, a world traveller, for his love of the symphony, and opera, for his passions of politics, history, and aviation, and especially his equine companions. Family and friends gathered October 13, 2012 at the Midway Community Hall for a celebration of Raymund’s life, where family and friends reminisced of his past and last experiences. Arrangments were entrusted to Grand Forks Funeral Home. Shalom, Brother.

A16 Boundary Creek Times Thursday, November 1, 2012

Wet weather doesn’t stop volunteers Greenwood Elementary School is getting a new playground this year thanks to the hard work of volunteers who worked through a very wet weekend on the project. In June it was announced that GES had been awarded $50,000 by the Ministry of Education program for repair, improvement and replacement of school playground equipment. School parent advisory councils and principals are responsible for getting the equipment installed. The children of Greenwood will also benefit from the grant since city council voted last Monday, Oct. 22 to purchase the old equipment from the school. Total cost to the municipality will be $8,450, which includes labour to remove the old equipment from the school as well as to install it in the park, plus irrigation parts and pea gravel, and $4,000 for the used playground structure, which is reported by city staff to appear in good shape for its age of 15 years. Some older pieces of equipment were gifted to the city for their labour in removing the old apparatus. The money, though not budgeted for in May,

will come from savings found through reduction in office staff at City Hall during the summer. Councillor Darla Ashton excused herself from the meeting after reading a statement: “Although I am an employee of School District 51, I in no way have a pecuniary interest in the purchase of the playground equipment by the City of Greenwood from School District 51 or Greenwood Elementary School and do not have any authority whatever in the purchase price or the negotiations of the said equipment. That being said, I will however remove myself because of the public’s perceived conflict in this discussion but request that if the conversation moves to purchase the other playground equipment I would be recalled for that.” Councillor Lee Cudworth supported the purchase, saying it was less than half price from new. Mayor Nipper Kettle was the sole vote against purchasing the playground, saying that he felt that taxpayers had already paid for it. “That was through the PAC committee – fundraised throughout the community and now we are asking taxpayers to pay again for the same piece of equipment. That is my concern.”

Many hands make light work as new playground equipment goes in at Greenwood Elementary.
