An overjoyed Darren Dettling with his daughter Challaine, who will be receiving his kidney in a matter of months

Family ecstatic as father a confirmed match for kidney donation BY CAITLIN THOMPSON Friends and family were overjoyed to hear that little Challaine Yvonne DettlingMorton will receive her father’s kidney in the coming months. Two-year old Challaine was born without functioning kidneys and has spent all of her life on dialysis. Early this year she was transferred

to BC Children’s Hospital in Vancouver to begin hemodialysis as her home-based peritoneal dialysis was no longer doing the job. Separated from her father and Bella Coola family, she has been in Vancouver with her mother, Rhonda Morton, ever since. Challaine’s father, Darren, began testing almost immediately to find out if he would qualify as a kidney donor to

his daughter. The process has multiple levels and usually takes months. The separation and the continued hemodialysis have been a challenge for the family, but they faced every day with a renewed optimism as Challaine’s father Darren continued to pass various levels of testing for kidney donation. Hopes were high for a success, but the family didn’t

dare speculate. On April 28, a week after Challaine’s second birthday, the family was told the good news. “Our prayers have been answered,” said Rhonda. “We all cried for hours the day it was confirmed that Darren was a match. Finally! It seems to have come fast in some ways, but then it can seem never ending when trying to get through the final hour of a

rough dialysis run.” Before a transplant could even be considered, Challaine had to reach a target weight of ten kilograms. She is now at a healthy 11.2 kilograms. The doctors remain impressed with her growth and praised the efforts of her parents because, considering all of the daily challenges she faces SEE

Transplant operation will likely occur in a matter of months CONTINUED FROM


with dialysis and reflux, it is remarkable that she has been able to reach such a healthy weight. “The doctors are delighted with her progress – she’s in the middle of the growth chart,” said Rhonda. “Darren and I were so particular with her diet as she had a strict daily volume allowed, we’d measure down to the millimeter to try and replace what she’d lose through reflux.” “From what I've been told most dialysis patients are low on the chart or have drops on it. Growing while on dialysis is a big mathematical game,” Rhonda explains. “I see how hard Challaine's doctors and dietitians work to try stay that little bit ahead of nutrition for her to grow but also not to overload the system and cause an imbalance. Lots of bloodwork to say the least.” There is no date set yet for the actual operation, as a team of medical specialists must be assembled and scheduled at both St. Paul’s Hospital, where Darren’s operation will take place, and at BC Children’s Hospital where Challaine will undergo the pro-

Once the transplant is complete, Challaine should enjoy a near normal life and will no longer have to receive dialysis treatments.

cedure. However, the family has been given the tentative timeline of June to August. Darren remains absolutely giddy with the news that he is match and says he has no anxiety facing a major operation that comes with many risks. “She’s my baby girl,” he says. “I just want to get it done.” Challaine is certainly a more delicate case due to her young age, but

transplants for children are not uncommon. Rhonda says they have conducted many successful transplants on very young children before. Once the transplant is complete, Challaine will have to remain in Vancouver for three months to make sure everything is stable and to regulate her

rejection drugs which over time may be lowered. These will be monitored closely as too little could cause rejection and too much could bring other side effects.” For Challaine’s father, changes are also imminent. There is a significant adjustment as the remaining kidney takes on the workload of two, resulting in fatigue and decreased energy for a period of time. He will be carefully watched for blood pressures, electrolytes and fluid balance, but is expected to make a full recovery. On average, related living donor kidneys’ last 12 years or more, depending on factors such as lifestyle, health,

While the transplant will improve Challaine’s quality of life immensely, she will have to take anti-rejection drugs for the rest of her life and undergo regular check ups. “The transplant will give her an almost normal life,” said Rhonda. “But she will always have to take anti-

and where the kidney came from. A live kidney donated from a living parent has a lower rejection factor than one received from a stranger or a nonliving donor and the best case scenario would be one donated from an identical twin, which is genetically the same and the recipient twin doesn’t even require anti-rejection drugs. Rhonda feels fortunate that Darren proved to be a match so quickly for Challaine’s sake. She herself was planning to be tested next, as the standing rule is to test only one potential donor at a time. But, she remains extremely empathetic towards those still waiting in hemodialysis. “I have mixed

feelings,” she says. “I am so happy for us, but when we are in the hemodialysis unit it’s hard to see all of those kids still waiting. I truly wish we had kidneys for all of them.” Once the transplant is complete and the waiting period is over, Rhonda and Challaine are excitedly planning to return to Bella Coola to family, friends, and their normal lives.

To all Bella Coola Valley Stakeholders: Re: Telus Equipment Repair Please be advised that Telus will be undertaking an equipment repair project beginning Wednesday May 11th and proceeding as late as Wednesday May 18th. Specifically, Telus crews will be re-securing their Mt. Stupendous Passive Repeater (also known locally as 'the reflector' near Burnt Bridge). During the process of repairs there may be brief periods of long-distance phone interruptions at which time the valley will be isolated from telephone access to and from outside numbers. The local exchanges of 982 and 799 are not anticipated to have any interruptions due to this project. Also subject to interruption (if phones are interrupted) are the Central Coast Communications Society internet service as well as ATM/Credit Card processing that relies on telephone communications. Although the interruptions are

predicted to be brief, the CCRD Emergency Program intends to have protocol agreements established with agencies that operate VHF repeater systems from the valley to provide patch through communications with outside agencies should the need arise. Details of this process will be made available prior to the scheduled work date. The public will be notified of the potential interruptions on other levels such as newspaper and/or radio spots. Feel free to share this information with your teams or anyone else. Please address any questions to myself. Thanks, Stephen R. A. Waugh G.S.C.

Bella Coola Community Forest converted to 25 year long-term licence BY HANS GRANANDER The Bella Coola Resource Society is very pleased to announce that the Bella Coola Community Forest Agreement has been converted from a fiveyear probationary licence to a 25 year renewable licence. “This is a historic step as we now have long lasting security that the community will be managing the local forest resources,� says Resource Society President Barry Brekke. “From a business perspective, it also provides security for our investors and we can now plan for longer term development,� adds Bella Coola Community Forest President, Carl Siwallace. Community forestry is a growing movement and there are over 45 communities in the Province that have licences and more are applying for them as there is growing awareness how important it is for rural communities to have greater control of how the resources on which they depend are managed. 2010 was a successful year for the Community Forest despite the prolonged summer fire season shutdown and the September flood. 15,367 m3 were logged (approximately 375 truck loads) and all of the wood was sold earlier this year. Over 300 m3 were sold to local mill operators while the rest was barged to the lower mainland where the logs were sold to Japanese, Chinese, Korean and domestic customers. Close to 1100 mandays of employment was generated and 88% of that was local. All of this resulted in $1.5 million of economic activity. The September flood did major damage to a most of the main forestry roads in the community forest; however the operations that were active at that time were not affected

very much, although the delay did prevent completion of the last block before snow set in. Repairs to the damaged roads and bridges are in the Ministry of Forests hands and funding availability has not been announced yet. The first tree seedlings were planted on the Community Forest in 2010. In total 36,000 Douglas fir and red cedar seedlings were planted on the areas logged in 2009 in the Nusatsum valley. The goal of the community forest is to reforest logged sites as soon as possible and the seedlings for the areas logged last year are growing in the nursery right now and will be planted in September this year. To ensure that wildlife habitat is protected, the Community Forest is working closely with local staff at the Ministry of Environment and the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations to develop a comprehensive habitat management strategy. In addition to the established grizzly gear, mountain goat and deer winter range areas, work is under way to identify and set aside goshawk nesting habitat and riparian areas along streams with tailed frogs. Last year, one of the fallers discovered

an occupied goshawk nest with two young fledglings. Work was stopped immediately and in coordination with Ministry of Environment work plans were adjusted and a protective buffer was put in place before work resumed. The nest was monitored and when the fledglings had matured enough they flew away with their parents. Looking ahead, logging plans for 2011 are very uncertain as the economic challenges continue. Driven by increasing demand from China, prices for certain types of wood are improving, but the high Canadian dollar erodes the gains. Furthermore, our access costs are very high as we need to build or rehabilitate a lot of road in order to reach small patches of viable timber. There is a small amount of wood (35-40 truck loads) left from the logging started in 2010 which will be completed later this spring and there are a few other logging options available that were not affected by flood damage but timber prices need to improve. Every option is being investigated by the Board with the goal of developing a plan that will get the crews back to work and provide some logs for local mills.

Bella Coola Safety Committee to offer support to both victims and offenders BY EVANGELINE HANUSE The Bella Coola Safety Committee (BCSC) is a group of community members that have been working together for over a year to assist victims and offenders of serious harms. The RCMP had suggested that a committee be formed that could address concerns and grievances from victims of crime that had originally been brought to the Nuxalk Nation Chief and Council. The Nuxalk Nation’s Health and Wellness department was given the authority to set up the committee and bring together various community resources.

Any wellness planning that is done includes an opportunity for a person to help themselves whether they have endured trauma or addiction. Through working with the RCMP and the court circuit team that attends in Bella Coola every four months, the BCSC has developed a working relationship to best help individuals who find themselves in trouble with the law or who have been vic-

timized. With many resources being pooled together Nelson says that community members are at an advantage in that “issues such as abuse can be dealt with at a communitybased level”. Nelson sees the committee in the future taking on a “stronger role in terms of community justice, with a sub-committee dealing with restorative justice” where victims can feel safe and have their rights upheld. The BCSC is available to assist anyone in the Bella Coola Valley. Contact the Nuxalk Nation Health and Wellness department at (250) 7995809 for further information.

BY MONICA TUTT April 30 was a beautiful spring day for the Tour de Bella Coola. Although challenged by a good headwind, 45 riders enjoyed

the sunshine and cooler temperatures. This year we were pleased to see more youth attendance, thanks to Charlotte Leys and Janice Kyle of Nuxalk Health and Wellness, who

spirited an enthusiastic team from Acwsalcta School. The ride once again ended at Bella Coola Grizzly Tour’s site where hungry, muscle fatigued bike riders feasted

on Mike’s yummy burgers beneath Leonard’s awesome gazebo. Keen participants and good weather are essential to the tour but what made this event truly a

success is the support and encouragement of community partners. Active Communities Bella Coola, a Bella Coola General Hospital initiative, coordinated the day. Thanks to Janice Kyle and Charlotte Leys for encouraging youth riders, a big thank you to Rick Ratcliff at Rick’s Re-Cycling for his inventive rack system to transport bikes, Wes Dearmond, from BC Parks, for transportation and support, School District #49 for the use of the school bus, Doug Baker for his wit, charm and driving finesse, Mecham’s Garage for propane, Leonard Ellis, Bella Coola Grizzly Tours for the functional charm of his gazebo, and Buddy Thatcher for flipping 85 burgers.

Premier to abolish parking fees in provincial parks

Calling all authors, poets, play-writes, and anyone who wants to write

Clark and Environment Minister Terry Lake launched BC Parks centennial celebrations today by announcing that parking will now be free in all provincial parks to encourage families to take advantage of our world-class parks system. “The parking meters are coming out and parking will be free, effective immediately, so that British Columbia's parks are even more welcoming for families,” said Premier Clark. “Our parks not only contribute to a healthy lifestyle and protect our environment, they are important to our economy. More park visitors mean more tourism dollars and more jobs for rural

Have you got some poems that you’d like to work on, but just never get around to it? What about that children’s story that you’ve been wanting to get published? That memoir of your travels? That half-finished novel? Or perhaps you want to start writing a blog? Does it seem like you can just never seem to find the time to write, or you can’t seem to finish anything you start? Joining a writer’s group might just provide the push that you need. Writer’s who belong to writers groups say there are many reasons to join: it provides motivation because you have to get something ready for the next meeting; you get inspiration from hearing others in your group read their work, and from their thoughtful suggestions about yours; you get support and encouragement from other writers; and you make connections and meet others who care about the written word. The list could go on. As this is a new group in the Valley, the members will determine the format and direction of the group. At the first

British Columbians and we want to eliminate any barriers to using the parks.” The Province also announced a $500,000 Community Legacy Program to support communities while they celebrate the BC Parks centennial. The funding will be used to improve parks across the province. Community groups can apply for up to $20,000 for projects such as trail enhancements, improvements that support recreational activities or conservation of a park's ecology or cultural history. These projects will provide a lasting commemoration of BC Parks 100. “BC Parks are a part of who we are,” said Lake. “They help define us as British Columbians, and show that we care deeply about our environment and our planet. The new legacy fund looks to the future and the improvements we can continue to make, and it looks to the past 100 years by recognizing that com-

munity groups have played a key role in making the parks and protected areas system what it is today.” While we celebrate BC Parks 100, park visitors will be the ones getting the birthday gifts through a number of promotions throughout the year. Starting soon, people can share photos or stories from a BC Parks adventure at www. YourBCParks and then go to www. to submit their name for a random draw of a BC Parks birthday pack to make your next park visit more enjoyable. With 13.6 per cent of the province set aside as parkland and protected areas, B.C. has the second largest park system in Canada, second only to the national park system. Special events will be held in parks across the province all year, as BC Parks honours 100 years of conservation and recreation, from the snowy peak of Mount Robson to the tidal pools of Haida Gwaii.

meeting, we will start with some free-fall writing exercises. Writers can talk about what they are working on, or what they want to start working on, they can read something they’ve been working on, or talk about a project they want to start working on. Maybe the group can start a blog or a wiki, organize workshops, invite local published authors – the only limit is our imagination. Writers will be able to perform their work for the public at the next “Word in the Valley” event, hosted by the Arts Council in October. In October, Chilcotin author and artist Chris Czajkowski will be the special guest. Chris will be spending the weekend in the Valley, showing her art and her books, and meeting and with the writer’s group. The first meeting of the Valley Writer’s Group will be May 29, 7:00 p.m. at The Art House. The group will continue to meet the last Sunday of the month.
