The Annual Edible Garden Tour visited Abra Silver’s very productive garden in Hagensborg on August 19th.

Blue skies for Agricultural Society’s Annual Edible Garden Tour and Feast DAYNA CHAPMAN Though the theme for this year’s Edible Garden Tour was ‘After the Flood’, beautiful blue skies graced the 5th annual event, which showcased five gardens for a busload of interested locals and visitors. The Bella Coola Valley Sustainable Agricultural Society hosts this event to celebrate local food producers and share innovations and ideas. This year, the resilience, tenacity and toil of

Valley growers were on display, as the flood of 2010 impacted all the showcased gardens. The growers’ toured participants through their gardens, answered questions, and told the stories of their flood experiences. Each garden had a different perspective- some had flowing water that carried away hard-earned topsoil, some had dumps of heavy silt, some have experienced a profound change in groundwater proximity. Some mentioned a marked

increase in fertility following the floods. All have adapted and changed and demonstrated the kind of creative, resilient, hard-working soul that thrives in the Bella Coola Valley. A highlight of this year’s event was the infamous and always entertaining Doug Baker, who not only navigated the bus through the lanes of Grant Road, but also shared his Flood Song in addition to reciting some flood-inspired poetry. The tour culminated in a

gorgeous potluck feast at the Art House in Hagensborg. The BCVSAS would like to acknowledge and extend profound thanks to Arts Council volunteers Joan Cole and Pauline Russell for handling the set up, serving, and clean up for the feast. Deep thanks are also due to Moore’s Market for their donation of door prize gift certificates, and to School District #49 for allowing us to use their bus. We especially thank our wonderful host

gardeners, Kevin and Susan O’Neill, Monica Tutt, Erin Chapman (who showed Verna Mikkleson’s garden), Christina Mecham, and Abra Silver. If you have or know a garden that could be featured in next year’s tour, please get in touch. We’d love to feature some of the hidden gems in the Valley- and don’t worry, no one’s garden is perfect! For more information, please contact Dayna at daynabellacoola@gmail.com or 250 799 5287.

The Canadian Safe Boating Council wants you to nominate your local boating heroes today PRESS RELEASE CANADA SAFE BOATING AWARDS This is your opportunity to have your own local boating safety advocate or hero recognized for their outstanding or life saving efforts in the field of recreational boating safety and environmental stewardship. They may have pulled someone to safety from a capsized boat, taught school children about the importance of always wearing a lifejacket or helped to keep the waterways clean and free of pollutants and debris. Whatever they have contributed to the boating community, we want you to nominate them! The Canadian Safe Boating Awards (CASBAs) are like the Peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Choice Awards of Safe Boating. They are an annual awards ceremony and dinner which takes place every January to recognize the efforts of the

general public, volunteers, professionals, agencies and organizations who have distinguished themselves in the fields of boating safety and environmental stewardship. Maybe you or the company you work for has developed a product that enhances boating safety or maybe you or someone you know was walking along the beach, heard someone calling for help and decided to react. The CASBA awards span a number of categories including: "Rescue of the Year" "Marine Professional of the Year" "Top Volunteer Dedicated to Safe Boating" "Best Boating Safety Initiative" "Safeguarding the Environment" "Marine Industry" â&#x20AC;&#x153;Visible PFD Wear in Advertisingâ&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Best Media Contribution to Boating Safetyâ&#x20AC;? What makes the CASBAs so very special is that nomina-

tions come from people like YOU! No matter where you live from Victoria to St. Johnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s, please keep your eyes and ears open. If you know or hear of some deserving individual or organization in your area, we ask you to please submit a nomination with related details by completing the form which can be found by going to www.csbc.ca. Help the Canadian Safe Boating Council say thankyou to deserving Canadians for their stellar efforts and let them know that their work is greatly appreciated. Visit www.csbc.ca for more information about the CASBAs and to submit your nomination. Anyone wishing to attend the CASBAs can also register through this site. Nominations close November 4th, 2012.

Should you be gluten-free? DR. PAUL MARTIQUET, MEDICAL HEALTH OFFICER Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it be wonderful if we could point to one evil source of all our health problems? If we could find one thing that caused diabetes, obesity and even cataracts, we could then effectively â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;fixâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; all manner of health problems. According to one author, Dr William Davis, a cardiologist, we already know the culprit: it is wheat, as explained in his book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wheat Belly.â&#x20AC;? Dr Davis goes so far as to saying that wheat has caused â&#x20AC;&#x153;more harm than any foreign terrorist!â&#x20AC;? Good to know â&#x20AC;&#x201D; wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it be nice if it was true? Today, wheat, and gluten in particular, has taken on a status as pariah for the millions who are on the low-carb diet bandwagon or who believe they are allergic or sensitive to gluten. Much of this antipathy can be traced back to Dr Davisâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book. Unfortunately, most of the evidence against wheat is anecdotal, that is, something we heard or experienced. But health decisions and policies need to be

based on evidence, not just assumption-laden stories. Some of the claims made include the â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;factâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; that wheat has been altered via selective breeding so its gluten is more likely to provoke reactions than wheat â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;used to do.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; While wheat and most foods have been bred to improve yields, quality and resistance to disease and insects, there is no evidence to show that â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;oldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wheat was better for us than todays. Wheat is a staple across most of the world, yet consumption variations do not show links to rates of obesity nor any other disease. And what of the evidence that wheat consumption over the past ten years has dropped in the US, yet the obesity epidemic has increased at the same time? The other claims made by Dr Davis are no better supported by evidence. Still, there are millions on the gluten-free bandwagon. Unfortunately, this distracts from those who truly are allergic or sensitive to gluten. Gluten is a protein in wheat that makes

dough elastic and smooth. It is also found in other grains including rye and barley. The only good reason to avoid gluten is if you are allergic to it because of celiac disease. In those people, gluten provokes an autoimmune response that damages the small intestine and can cause symptoms like bloating, diarrhea,

cramps, abdominal pain, weight loss, fatigue and loss of appetite. In Canada and the United States, there are an estimated one in 100 people with celiac disease; if there is a family history, the number jumps up to one in 22. If you are experiencing chronic indigestion or other symptoms of gluten sensitivity, consult your doctor and get tested for celiac disease. Do this before making the move to wheat and gluten-free eating. After all, if gluten is not the problem, avoiding it will not clear up the symptoms

and will mask the real problem. If testing confirms celiac disease, the next step is to get nutritional advice from a

registered dietician who will provide guidance on healthy eating including eating other healthy grains (wheat is not the only

From visitors afar

Little Cherry Bear

I am pleased to announce that the Coast Mountain News, dated 19 July, and the nifty Bella Coola bookmarks survived the perilous border crossing all intact. We were thrilled to learn the results of the Sir Alexander Mackenzie school awards day results, as well as the eco-rafting details.

I need to register my dismay and anger at the article “Little Cherry Bear”, published August 16, 2012 in the Coast Mountain News. The rude and disrespectful language used is insulting, divisive, and polarizing to our community. Is this the kind of writing I should look forward to? Respectfully, Doris Nelson Bella Coola

We thank you for reminding the retired folks from northern California of a very pleasant stay in Bella Coola-beautiful place and nice people!! Best wishes from Lincoln, California Patrick Jewell Always curious-Never bored

Know your berries Beautiful berry picture in last week’s paper. However, those were mountain ash (sorbus americana) berries, not red elderberries (sambucus racemosa). Mountain ash berries are edible, although not very palatable. The mountain ash tree belongs to the rose family and is related to apples. Mountain ash ber-

ries, or pones as they are called, have been used historically by both Europeans and native Americans. The berries are very high in vitamins A and C; early explorers ate them raw to cure scurvy. They were also used historical medicinally. I have used them to make jelly, which is good with venison; I found it best made

with equal parts apple juice otherwise the flavour is too strong. As for the elderberry, it is the seeds that are toxic, and unripe fruit, so when processing be sure to remove the seeds. Birds and bears love both of these fruits. Regards, Lyn Sakiyama

All I can say is Thank God for the socalled Shoot, Shovel and Shut up residents of our Valley. As with out them and their ancestors our Valley would never have been settled and be the Valley it is today. Kathy Nylen Sinclair House Bed and Breakfast

Letter to the Editor Re: Little Cherry Bear Another illegal bear shooting in Hagensborg just shows the total lack of respect for any wildlife in this beautiful Valley and underlines the problem of great ignorance that these frightened lawless little men demonstrate by shooting in residential neighborhoods. Further, total ignorance manifests itself among those people as the careless dumping of the illegally shot bear carcass at the entrance to the newly constructed West Nusatsum Forest Service Road endangers other Valley residents and families that recreate in the

area by potentially attracting other wildlife to the area. What is even more disturbing, not nearly 200m away, rots a second carcass of another illegally shot Valley bear in the ditch at West Nusatsum Forest Service Road. Why do you live in this beautiful place when you show no regard for the wildlife that call this place also home or towards your fellow valley residents? Furthermore, the RCMP takes 50 minutes to respond to a call from a distressed valley resident reporting multiple shots at a Valley neighborhood - really. They obviously think our community is safer with people shooting

whenever they want and where they want. Even so, we are very disturbed by the event and the two dead bears. We hope that the CO’s (Conservation Officers) involved in the investigation in one of the two shootings are finally able to hold these dangerous individuals, the bear shooter minority (triple “SSS”) in this Valley, accountable. Positive, peaceful change will continue to take place in this Valley, thanks to the active Bear Aware group even if it will take one dangerous, illegal bear shooter at a time. Yours truly, The Schieck family

School days, school days… beautiful Golden Rule days!

Put the “home” back in “homework”

LEONARD KOZAK ABC LIFE LITERACY CANADA Another summer is all but gone and another school year is about to begin. For some this will bring excitement, for others possibly dread. It means holidays are over and the work begins again. It also means new beginnings and new opportunities for making new friends and learning new things. It can also mean new teachers and staff members. As Chair of the Bella Coola Adventist School Board, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome and introduce to you our staff for the upcoming school year. All staff have new positions and responsibilities and some are new not only to our school but to our valley. First of all, we are happy to welcome Rebecca Landry back as our grades 5 to 9 teacher. She has ably filled this position for the past two years in our school but has agreed to take on the added responsibility of Principal. She will also be taking over part of the school music program and is excited about introducing a hand bell choir program. We wish her all the best in her new roles. Next I would like to welcome Charity Alcaide to our school and the Bella Coola Valley. She comes to us from Burnaby. This will be a year of firsts for her. This will be her first experience at country living, her first classroom (even though she has been teaching for the past two years as a Supply Teacher) and her first wilderness camp out (in June of this year) but she is undaunted. She will be teaching our K to 4 classes. We are excited to have her joining our staff and hope she will find us to be the warm and friendly community that we are. You will find her to be very friendly and

approachable. After taking a year off, Lynette Kozak is again joining our staff in a new role as Secretary/ Administrative Assistant, Bookkeeper and Librarian. Lynette has worked at our school for several years in various capacities but this will be the first time she will be wearing many of these hats all under one full time job description. Her voice is most likely to be the one you hear when calling the school. We welcome her back and wish her success as she takes on these new chal-

lenges. We have a newly renovated Home Economics/ Multipurpose room that we are very pleased with. Lucinda Dixon has been the driving force behind this project for which we are very appreciative. Thank you CJ for your hard work and dedication to our school program over the past twelve years. Bella Coola Adventist School offers an alternative Christian based learning environment with small class sizes, limited to 15 students per class, with teaching assistants, which gives

us a low student/ teacher ratio. BCAS is open to all children of all backgrounds. We offer a K to grade 9 classroom experience with a Distance Learning Virtual Classroom experience for grades 10 to 12. Registration is limited so contact us soon to reserve a tuition free spot. We welcome your inquiries or stop by to tour our facility when our doors open on September 4th. For registration or for information, call the school at 250799-5910 to set up an appointment.

Tender Call CENTENNIAL POOL CONCRETE REPAIRS The Central Coast Regional District is inviting proposals from qualified individuals or contractors to perform concrete deck repairs and related works at the Centennial Pool in Hagensborg. Information packages will be available at the Central Coast Regional District offices, 626 Cliff Street, Bella Coola, BC 250 799-5291, and on the website www.ccrd-bc.ca, on Friday, August 31.

After a long hot summer it can be tough to get kids back into a routine, and focused on homework. But homework is a key part of your child’s education, and it’s important that they not only complete it, but also understand what they’ve learned. Studies show that children's achievements in school improve with increased parent involvement in education. So get involved in your kids’ schoolwork – you might even learn something new too! ABC Life Literacy Canada offers 10 tips on how to make homework part of your daily routine: 1. Develop a daily routine by setting aside a specific time each day/evening for homework. 2. Provide a quiet, well-lit place with basic school supplies. 3. Understand your child’s style of learning – this will help you develop a personalized homework plan for your child. 4. It’s not uncommon for kids to get overwhelmed with big assignments or projects. Help them break the project down into smaller steps. Work on pieces throughout the week and do the

hard parts on the weekend. 5. Talk with your child’s teacher and be aware of their method of teaching. Help your child by using familiar terms and examples. 6. Don’t reserve learning to homework hour. Make learning a part of daily life. 7. If your child gets frustrated or distracted with their homework, allow them to take a short break. If this frustration continues, talk with your child’s teacher to determine if a tutor might be needed. 8. To reinforce comprehension and memory skills, take 10 minutes to talk about the stories you’ve read together. 9. Show your child that the skills they are learning relate to real life. If your child is learning math, for example, balance your chequebook or have them count out change for you. 10. Teach your child to be independent. Offer to help them with difficult homework challenges, but then let them complete the remainder on their own. For other family literacy tips and activities, visit FamilyLiteracyDay.ca.

Driven by true enthusiasm, Fawn Gunderson decided to pursue her Realtor’s license last year and was awarded her designation as a Licensed Realtor in August. “I fell in love with Bella Coola on my very first visit thirteen years ago. I moved here soon after and started a family. I have always loved the lifestyle that I live here and always want everyone to experience the same. I feel that real estate will be a great way to stay connected with everyone here, meet new people and share my enthusiasm.” It wasn’t an easy decision. Becoming licensed to sell real estate in B.C. requires dedication and drive – the course is a huge learning curve for most and Fawn was no exception. With a background in Early Childhood Education and Special Needs, this course was about as far from that as you could get. But as she prepared to leave her other career behind, new challenges came into focus, and Fawn saw that

much of her life in the Valley has left her well prepared for the transition. Choosing to work with LandQuest Realty ® was a relatively easy decision, as she felt their mandate and experience matched both the Bella Coola area and her personal interests. LandQuest Realty® is a BC-based realty company specializing in rural, oceanfront and recreational, lodges, marinas, resorts and also residential properties throughout the province. The company refers to itself as ‘The Source’ for these types of properties, and Fawn followed her instincts when she decided to join the LandQuest® team. Fawn knows their innovative marketing techniques will maximize exposure to the area and showcase the properties large or small in publications such as Pacific Yaughting and BC Outdoors. “Having lived in Bella Coola for over a decade, I have become very familiar with both the Valley and the outer coast as my family and I love exploring the coastal waters.” she says. “I decided to go with LandQuest® because they strike the right balance of specializing in homes and properties while encour-

aging outdoor living in rural areas.” Besides her dedication to the activities most Valley residents love, such as fishing, snowmobiling, hiking, and boating, those of you who know Fawn will undoubtedly be familiar with her love of improvement! Over the past few years, she and her husband have spent much of their time transforming their remote oceanfront property into a warm and inviting spot by hand building a timber-frame cabin on their property in Labouchere. So whether it’s an isolated piece of property or a cozy Valley home, she sees it with all the potential it has to offer. “I am really excited to begin this next chapter of my life here in the Valley,” she says. “It has always been a dream of mine to showcase the beauty and potential of the Valley, and this is certainly one way I can do that.” Fawn is currently working with LandQuest Realty Corporation® and will be available year-round. She will work hard to bring the perfect buyer to your door or help you get into the home of your dreams. She can be reached at 250-982-2314 or by email at fawn@landquest.com

To market, to market Bella Coola Farmers’ Institute evolution - Part 1 of 3 DIANNE TUCK Commercial gardens were established in British Columbia back in the early 1800’s to provide provisions to the fur trade. As time evolved this led to gardeners, farmers, and others who had a common interest, to exchanging ideas, create friendships, and promote a farming social culture. This was the basis of establishing Farmers’ Institutes. Current legislation sets out the premises of the Farmers’ and Women’s Institutes Act, and the

Incorporation and objects of an institute, being: Section 3 An institute may be incorporated under this Act for one or more of the following purposes: (a) to improve conditions of rural life so that settlement may be permanent and prosperous; (b) to promote the theory and practice of agriculture; (c) to arrange on behalf of its members for the purchase, distribution or sale of commodities, supplies or products (d) to act generally on behalf of its members

in all matters incidental to agricultural pursuits and rural development; (e) to promote home economics, public health, child welfare, education and better schools. These are all processes that our local Institute has followed since its inception in 1914. Member’s topics of discussion over the years has covered: Farm Tax Assessment reviews, Flood Control on Farm Land, zoning by-laws, Hwy 20 access, Environmental Farm Planning, Meat Inspection
