Hagensborg Water District struggles with funding, capital development demands BY CAITLIN THOMPSON The Hagensborg Water District continues its struggle to fund the numerous projects that are well beyond the scope of the District’s tax base. Most pressing is meeting the province’s requirement that all drinking water be treated so that it is considered ‘potable,’ a law that

has been in effect since the mid 1990s. Despite drinking untreated water locally for decades, this Drinking Water Protection Act is sweeping in character and provides no exemptions. Anxious to avoid chlorine, the District sought an innovative solution in the form of a Point of Entry UV treatment plan. While this may provide the answer to one problem,

there are still several hurdles the project faces before it gets off the ground. Although the POE project has the support of Vancouver Coastal Health, it requires the formation of a policy to approve it and a pilot project to test the system before full installation can take place. This required more money, and water users saw their rates rise sharply to fund

the project as they wished to avoid unnecessary debt with the province. The District committed to seeking grant funding to cover the additional costs, bearing in mind that being an Improvement District drastically reduced their scope of available funding. On top of the POE project, the District’s aging infrastructure is badly in need of repair.

Replacing the primary watermain, an aging fire truck, and rebuilding the dam intake have pushed costs into the millions. As of press time replacement of the aging watermain is projected to cost $2,840, 000 and the price for the purification process is now estimated at $1,575,000. To SEE WATER ON PAGE 3

Capital development costs estimated to be millions CONTINUED FROM

PAGE 1

To replace the primary fire truck is an estimated $350,000 and the need to rebuild the dam intake is approximately $3,000,000. This brings the total to almost $8 million. Hagensborg water users are feeling the pinch and several of them have expressed their feeling that the financial demands on the District are way beyond its capabilities. While most remain supportive of the POE project and the upgrades, concerns are growing as expenses continue to mount with

no funding relief in sight. Taxes have risen significantly in the past year to fund the projects but even these hikes will not cover the costs. The Districts’ best shot at obtaining funding was dashed this month when the CCRD refused to support a joint application for the Gas Tax General Strategic Priorities Fund (GSPF) and Innovations Fund (IF). While the CCRD did express a desire to help the District, they were not willing to do so at the expense of a potential project they could deem to be of

higher importance within the CCRD. After tabling the matter for months, they moved to decline the request. Additionally, they reiterated the fact that water services in Hagensborg are not within their responsibilities as a local government. “It is a priority for the Hagensborg Water District to access the funding they require to deliver their services,” said CCRD CAO Joy MacKay. “It is not a CCRD mandate.” District Administrator Rosemary Smart understands that

community may be apprehensive when it comes to approving these high costs. “The community will again have the opportunity to review the upcoming capital plans and discuss how best to move forward,” said Smart. “In the meantime, the trustees continue to seek assistance for the community in funding the projects.” As an Improvement District, they cannot qualify for capital grants, and this is certainly hampering their abilities to meet their long list of growing demands from the province,

Simon and Jemima Schooner celebrate 65 years of marriage Simon and Jemima Schooner celebrated 65 years of marriage last week with a celebration at the Bella Coola Pentecostal Church attended by family and friends. Simon and Jemima (nee Clellamin) were both born and raised in Bella Coola. They met in 1944 and were married on March 26, 1946 at the United Church in Bella Coola. Simon was 27 at the time; he is now 91 years old. Jemima was 18; she is now 82. They had eight children, four boys and four girls. From those eight children the couple now has nearly 100 descendents – 40 grandchildren, 50 great grandchildren, and two

great-great grandchildren. Their youngest daughter Ginger, says that these numbers are probably higher now as the latest tally (which hasn’t been formally done yet) includes at least seven more. When asked on what their secret is to the longevity of their marriage, Jemima cited their faith in God. “Faith plays a strong role in keeping us together,” she said. “We thank God that He kept us together all these years, He kept us going.”

the water users, and the aging system. A review of other options, which include forming a municipality or amalgamating with the CCRD, has been discussed many times over the years when funding issues are raised, but the community has repeatedly opted for the autonomy of community control and management. The community will once have the opportunity to discuss these issues, and have a look at some hard numbers

on the proposed capital development plans, at the Annual

General Meeting scheduled for April 21.

Shalya Schooner received the award for Best Offensive Player of the whole tournament and Talia Pootlass received a first All-Star for the whole tournament, which had over 90 players. Way to go girls! Thanks to Crystal Leys-Tallio for chaperoning and chauffeuring and to Elysabeth ReavellRoy for being our teacher chaperone.

Holly Willgress will soon be offering ZUMBA - a popular latindance inspired workout class that is so fun it’s known as ‘exercise in disguise.’

Are you ready to party yourself into shape? ZUMBA fitness classes are latin-dance inspired workout classes that are so fun you don’t even realize you are exercising! ZUMBA enthusiasts like to call it ‘exercise in disguise.’ There is no need to have any dance background, the steps are easy to follow and most people pick it up after just a few classes. Best of all, there are no ‘rules’ and no judgement. If you are having trouble with a step, just move any way you want to, feeling the music, until you get it down. ZUMBA fitness was the brainchild of Beto Perez, originally from Cali, Columbia. As the story goes, back in the mid‘90’s, he darted off to teach an aerobics class and forgot his typical music. In his backpack he had mixed tapes of salsa and merengue music, which he had grown

up with, so he improvised the class using this music instead. The class was electrified and people couldn’t stop smiling. His class loved it! He spontaneously created a new kind of dance fitness that focussed on letting the music move you, rather than counting reps over the music. ZUMBA Fitness has moved on to become the world’s largest and most successful dancefitness program, with more than 10 million people of all ages, shapes and sizes. ZUMBA classes feature exotic and high energy Latin and world beat rhythms, combining dance styles such as salsa, meringue, cumbia, reggaeton, flamenco, samba, belly dance and bhangra. It is easy to do, effective and totally exhilarating. Most importantly, it’s addictive and keeps people coming back, which is important

for achieving your fitness goals. Men love it too!.In the U.S. about 50 percent of participants are men, so come give it a try guys! Holly Willgress is a certified Yoga Instructor and was recently licensed to teach ZUMBA Fitness classes. Holly discovered ZUMBA when trying to find Latin dance instructional DVD’s on-line. She has a dance background and loves to dance for exercise and has always been enthralled with Latin America and its vibrant culture, particularly the many forms of latin dance. From the moment she tried ZUMBA she was hooked and is very excited about sharing it with the community. Classes will be Friday’s at 5 pm beginning April 8 at Lobelco Hall. If you have any questions please call 982-2298 and ask for Holly.

Mr. Something Something is a band that doesn’t shy away from their grassroots activism A little something for the body, a little something for the mind. No, the writer did not forget the name of this Toronto band that will grace the stage of the Discovery Coast Music Festival on July 23 and 24. Over the last five years the band has toured relentlessly in Canada, playing more than 500 shows, including appearances at many folk festivals and most major jazz festivals. Mr. Something Something is a unique blend of afro-jazz-pop. Founding members and childhood friends, percussionist Larry Graves and sax player

John MacLean opted for the unbeatable dance rhythms of Nigeria, Senegal, Mali, and Ghana to drive the band’s themes of social justice and environmental activism. However, they use western instruments and improvisation to explore and layer over what used to be called Afrobeat. Imaginative solo work by respected jazz guitarist Paul MacDougall, Liam Smith’s dependable bass lines, the mesmerizing on-stage dancing of Jennifer Dallas, and passionate delivery by electrifying front man, Johan Hultqvist, round out

the band’s sound. The band’s second album, The Edge, was nominated for a 2005 JUNO Award for World Music Album of the Year. Deep Sleep, their third album, was the most played world music album on Canadian college radio in 2007, and a track from it was included on a prestigious British compilation that was released in more than fifty countries. The Toronto Star said of their most recent 2009 offering, “Shine Your Face marks the group’s most accomplished

work yet.” Aside from their wildly energized and unpredictable live shows, the band is well-known for its green politics and environmental activism. The group has played a windpowered show, and performed in such unconventional venues as organic farms and food co-ops to highlight communities that are trying to minimize their ecological footprints. In 2008, Mr. Something Something made headlines by

Award Winning Author Larry Loyie to visit Bella Coola Award winning, First Nations author Larry Loyie is coming to Bella Coola, April 4 to 6, to do a series of workshops with Valley schools. As well, he will host an evening event, open to the public, on Monday April 4, 7:00 p.m. at Acwsalcta School’s new Library. Larry Loyie was born in Slave Lake, Alberta. He spent his early years living a traditional Cree life, taught by his parents and grandparents. Larry first attended public school in Slave Lake. At the age of eight, he was taken to St. Bernard Mission residential school in Grouard, Alberta, where he spent the next six years. He left school at 13 to begin his working life. At the age of 12, Larry read a Look magazine article about Ernest Hemingway. It inspired him to a lifelong dream of becoming a writer.

In his mid-fifties, Larry went back to school to achieve his dream of becoming a writer. His first children's book, “As Long as the Rivers Flow,” won the 2003 Norma Fleck Award for Canadian Children's NonFiction and was the 2006 First Nation Communities Read Honour Book of the Year. This now-classic book is the story of his last summer living a traditional Cree life before going to residential school. “When the Spirits Dance” is based on his childhood during the Second World War. “Goodbye Buffalo Bay” tells of his last year at residential school in Grouard, Alberta, and moving on as a young labourer in Alberta and British Columbia. “The Gathering Tree” is the story of a First Nations family facing the issue of HIV. “The Moon Speaks

Cree,” which will be published this year, is a winter adventure set during his traditional childhood years. Larry has worked with his partner, senior writer and editor, Constance Brissenden since 1993. Together they have given more than 1,000 presentations and writing workshops at schools, colleges, libraries, conferences and writers festivals. A longtime community activist in the areas of learning and literacy, Larry's message to students of all ages is: “Read, read, read, to get better marks in school.” To find out more about Larry Loyie, check out his website at http:// www.firstnationswriter.com. Come out on Monday, April 4 to Acwsalcta’s new library to hear Larry talk about his books. The talk will start at 7:00 p.m.

pledged assistance and support, particularly in identifying possible sources of funding. While Emergency Program Coordinator Steve Waugh was unable to attend, directors continued discussions related to the September 25 flood. The final report from the review/debrief sessions, held on February 11 and 12, was presented. It is expected that its recommendations will be incorporated in a subsequent Enhanced Flood Management Plan. The directors also expressed concerns about the large volume of woody debris in our rivers, and asked staff to explore possible solutions as soon as possible. The Board reviewed the minutes of a recent meeting of the Centennial Pool Commission, noting that a thorough inspection of the pool is scheduled to take place as soon as the ground thaws. Flood damages will be assessed pursuant to seeking compensation from the insurance company as well as the Province. It remains the highest priority of the Board that the pool be made operational as soon as is practicable. Finally, the direc-

tors considered a request from the Hagensborg Water District to apply for funding on its behalf for major water system improvements. The proposal seeking funding under the Province’s Gas Tax Innovation Fund was presented at the CCRD’s February meeting. Regrettably, directors of Hagensborg Water District were unable to attend the March meeting. A Hagensborg water user did attend, expressing his concerns about the Hagensborg Water District proposal to the directors. Having given the proposal careful consideration, the Board decided not to support the Hagensborg Water District funding request. Not only did the directors identify several minor and major deficiencies in the Hagensborg Water District proposal, but further noted a number of other preferred projects for which application might be made by the CCRD. The Board is only permitted to make one application under this specific funding program, successful or not. Therefore, it is of utmost importance that a project be chosen which stands a reasonable likelihood of success.

John Moody – Lhalyamc – Copper Man

PANCAKE BREAKFAST: Saturday and Sunday 7am-10am FRIDAY EVENING: Entertainment in the Beer Gardens “Skidmarks” (live band, no cover charge)

When little John was at Canuck Place last May 24, 2010 he shared his wishes for a Copper Feast and Memorial just like his Uncle Scott Moody’s. “That way people will see how much my family and friends love me mommy!” It was hard to hear that coming from John but I knew he was serious. So with my family, friends and community behind me I started the process of planning a Copper Feast. The Copper is the highest wealth to the Nuxalk. When the people gather to feast a Copper we come together with one heart to strengthen the Copper by putting value on it. This is done through feasting and the giving of gifts to the Chiefs to hold up the Copper on behalf of their families. By doing this, the Chiefs show that they support the family in their work. The significance of the Copper stretches back from the beginning of time when our world was covered in darkness. After Raven brought the light, the first ancestors lived long happy lives and when they passed into the next world their loved ones mourned them for one year. The memorial feast followed where they

would throw down a Copper to represent the time of grief, just in the same way as the first ancestors were in sadness in the time of darkness. When a Copper is thrown down it represents throwing away the grief and letting the light back in to your life. It is not about forgetting the loved one who has passed on, but leaving the grief of losing them. This is the Nuxalk way of grieving. However, before a Copper is thrown down the family has to put wealth on the Copper. When wealth is put on the Copper, it represents each member of the family and community coming together to send the wealth to the loved one. On February 12, 2011, our community gathered at the Nuxalk Hall to honor a small child, John Earl Edward Moody – Lhalyamc – Copper Man with a Copper Feast. Snaxkila – Clyde Tallio, Qwaxinay – Lance Nelson and Xawisus – Chris Nelson helped our Family by first singing the Qwaixaks song. A Sisawlk song used to announce that the family is preparing to start the work for their loved one. The hereditary Chiefs seated at the

head table were then called to come and uphold the Moody Copper. When a Chief holds up a Copper he is showing that he represents his family as a whole behind him, supporting the Moody family in their time of grief. After the Chiefs’ held the Copper, Qwaxinay and Xawisus began singing Simon Johnson’s Honor Song. Snxakila then asked the people to touch the Copper as

Chief Cecil Moody went through all the rows of tables. John’s aunties, Christina Mecham, Miranda Tallio, Sarah Moody and Wanda Apps-Edgar followed behind Chief and gifted each person with a quarter as thanks for witnessing the families work and touching the Copper. The family of John Moody then presented the Chiefs’ with baskets as SEE
