City hopes new signs stop speeders

CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

You ‘crack’ me up! Dona Dees fries eggs in the kitchen of the Gospel Chapel last Saturday for the sixth annual Community Pancake Breakfast, with proceeds going to benefit the Community Christmas Hampers. People attending were treated to pancakes, eggs, sausages, juice and coffee.


There have been new stop signs placed along 72nd Avenue in Grand Forks to minimize the number of vehicles speeding through the street. The three-way stop signs were recently put up at the intersection of 72nd Avenue and Cypress Way after multiple complaints about speeding vehicles and the dangers it caused in the neighbourhood. “Throughout this year we’ve been receiving complaints about speeders on 72nd Avenue, in between 27th Street and 19th Street,” said Hal Wright, the City of Grand Forks’ manager of operations. “We have the street park on one side and Extra Foods on the other side, and there were some concerned residents in the area, as well as an RCMP request for signage.” In correspondence with the city, police noted that 72nd Avenue was like a perceived drag strip that was created between the grocery store all the way down to the local skate park. Grand Forks RCMP was contacted but was unable to respond by press time. Wright noted the location of the new stop signs, between 19th and 22nd Streets, represented the midway point of 72nd Avenue, which until that point was a long stretch of road without any signs for traffic control. There was also consideration given to the opening of the Silver Kettle Village and the increase of traffic that would occur. “We thought it would be opportune at the time to put up new stop signs to slow the traffic down and have them stop there so that it wouldn’t continue to be abused for speeding,” Wright said. “We’ve been monitoring it and we will continue to monitor it. I haven’t received any more complaints about speeders going through there, and I know there are several happy people there about the new signage.” After doing a quick investigation, Wright pointed out that Silver Kettle has a full parking lot and that the stop signs are doing what they are intended to do. “The street on the other side was for construction access to the Silver Kettle, so it’s not a real street, but all legally existing streets have a stop sign,” he said. “It was just a very long stretch of road that a few made it bad for the majority because if all of us law-abiding citizens obey the speed limit then there’s no problem. But it’s the few that make it bad for everybody so we felt it

necessary to put the stop signs there.” Coun. Gary Smith suggested that a stop sign might also be placed near the Gables, by 27th Street. “I thought it would be better placed near the Gables because there are a lot of kids who go to that complex,” he said. “That’s the route they take to go to school.” He noted the placement chosen by staff may have been determined to be the better location for the stop signs, though additional signs may help. “I just think it should be placed further down the street,” Smith said. “I made the suggestion to staff because there’s certainly more traffic coming from the Gables than there is from Silver Kettle Village at the moment. Staff are thinking into the future by hoping that residents will get used to the three-way stop sign.”

Downtown business association in works RDKB board rejects adding question period in agenda z REGIONAL GOVERNANCE

Gazette Staff

When the Economic Development Advisory Committee invited Barb Haynes (Penticton Business Improvement Association) to Grand Forks in August to speak about the benefits of having an organized downtown business organization, it sparked enthusiasm and renewed energy from several downtown merchants. With the help of the Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce, dialogue has begun to address the need for a downtown business association in Grand Forks

and a defined area has been established. A meeting will take place on Tuesday, Nov. 13 from 7 until 9 p.m. at the Community Futures Boundary Grand Forks office (1647 Central Avenue) and all business owners and managers within the defined downtown area (see map) are invited to discuss their visions and ideas on building a stronger and more vibrant downtown core. If you run a business within the defined area, your input is important. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend.


Mobile abattoir coming by end of the month

CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

The mobile meat-processing unit will be en route to Grand Forks by the end of this month and will be ready for operation by early next year for local meat producers to use. The mobile meat-processing unit or abattoir, will eliminate costs on transportation and stress on animals for local farmers, as well as expand their markets. Area residents will also have access to locally raised and government-inspected meat products, including beef, pork, goat, and poultry. Roly Russell, president of the Grand Forks and Boundary Regional Agricultural Society (GFBRAS), explained that everything is coming together smoothly. “We are expecting delivery at the end of November,” he said. “As long as everything goes according to plan, we should have it inspected and approved for operation before the end of the calendar year.” Russell noted that once the ab-

News tips

attoir is ready, GFBRAS would be awarding the contract out to another group to operate the unit. A request for proposals will be accepted from interested parties. GFBRAS would maintain governance and control over the unit but it will be fairly minimal, such as transparent and fair costing, he added. “It would be fair in terms of how much it would cost to move it, how much it would cost to set it up, and how much it would cost to use it,” Russell said. “If you are a poultry producer, if you have 500 birds, you can do the math yourself to determine whether it makes sense to bring that unit to your property, or whether it makes more sense to partner with somebody else where the unit is and transport your birds there.” Discussions and plans for the production of a mobile meat processing unit were finalized last year with the GFBRAS receiving funding from the federal government last March to help with the construction of the unit.

The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) board of directors discussed cuts to Canada Post and Greyhound services at the last board meeting on Nov. 1 at the Grand Forks Regional District of Kootenay Boundary board room. RDKB turns down section in agenda for question period A motion to put a section in the agenda for a question period for the public was voted against after much discussion. Greenwood Mayor Nipper Kettle pointed out that the RDKB meetings are open to the public and raised the issue of having a section in the agenda for question period. “We have it in our regular (Greenwood) council meetings and I believe we should have it in the beginning or end of these meetings,” he said. “It would give people in the audience to ask about times of concern on the agenda.” Chief Administrative Office John MacLean noted that discussion was raised earlier this year. “The feeling at the time was that it would not be a part of the agenda,” MacLean said. “If it was a part of the agenda, then we’re writing notes and resolutions can fall over everything else. What the practice has been is when we have had members of the public in attendance, which is actually rare, that immediately following adjournment, Chair (Larry) Gray would open the floor for discussions or questions. But it would not be part of the formal agenda.” The motion was denied, with seven directors voting against and six for the motion. Greyhound services Concerned about lack of accessibility and safety, the board of directors and city representatives unanimously agreed to write a letter to Greyhound in regards to their plans for reduced services. Kettle made the motion at the meeting, noting the City of Greenwood has already sent in a letter of concerns. “We’re sending a letter to Greyhound saying this is a concern for residents, including the Boundary, because on the weekends they will reduce services,” he said. “This raised some red flags because I think it’s the wrong thing to do. If they want more ridership, they should lower prices, not raise them.” Midway Director Marguerite Rotvold agreed, adding lack of accessibility was also an issue. “When you cut back on the number of trips, it also limits options for residents in the Bound-

ary to go east or west,” she said. “It’s an inconvenience to everybody.” The application suggests a reduced minimum route frequency between Kelowna and the Alberta Border and Hwy 3. Canada Post services to be cut in Beaverdell RDKB also agreed to write a letter to Canada Post in opposition to closing its services in Beaverdell on Saturdays. Rotvold added the decline of postal services in one small rural community would spread to other rural communities. “Because it’s not a designated federal post office, it’s easier to cut back hours there,” she said. “Our council in the past has been against any reduction in services.” Rossland Director Kathy Wallace did note that there are very few people who used the post office during Saturdays, though she is against the idea of loss of jobs. “There’s no business on that day,” she said. “But there should be other ways to attract customers into the business.” In a letter to the RDKB, Canada Post Beaverdell branch vice-president Carolyn Elliot explained that the Canadian Postmasters and Assistants Association (a bargaining agent that represents over 8,000 employees of Canada Post Corporation working in rural post offices) received notice that Canada Post Corporation is proposing a reduction of hours and would no longer offer Saturday service in Beaverdell.

❚ Our View

Feds shouldn’t pay soldiers lip service Remembrance Day is set for this Sunday and there will be a ceremony at the cenotaph by Grand Forks City Hall to remember service people that have survived or have perished in war. Various politicians from the city and Regional District of Kootenay Boundary will be on hand. There will also be similar ceremonies in the province and nation’s capitals, with prominent politicians as well and in fact, Grand Forks’ Roxanne Priede has been selected by the Royal Canadian Legion as the National Memorial (Silver) Cross Mother and will be in Ottawa to partake in the Remembrance Day memorial. The various politicians will likely lay wreaths and may even say some words, “Lest we forget,” etc. But when you consider some of the recent moves by federal politicians, the words from the aforementioned will be merely lip service and veterans deserve so much more. The examples of this are plentiful. Prime Minister Stephen Harper is said to be increasing military spending but it seems veterans are getting the proverbial short end of the stick. According to reports, a federal fund intended to give poor veterans a dignified burial has rejected 20,147 of 29,853 requests for funding, or 67.4 per cent – failure to meet eligibility requirements or their qualifying veteran annual income was over $12,010 a year. Also, earlier in October, the federal government said it will cease to deduct veterans’ disability pensions from benefits for lost earnings and Canadian Forces income support. There have been reports of veteran disability benefits reduced as well. The number of Second World War vets is dwindling and with younger generations becoming older, the relevance and true importance of veterans and Remembrance Day may be on the wane but that doesn’t mean war vets – whether they served in the First, Second World Wars or more recently in Afghanistan – should see such disrespect. The phrase “War is Hell” has been tossed around often, especially at this time of year, and that is what people that have taken part in military action go through – one can only imagine killing another person or seeing one’s friends and acquaintances killed before their very eyes. Helping veterans of war cope with life after service and giving them a proper burial is the least we can do.

Question of the Week

YES 74%

Published every Wednesday

The Grand Forks Gazette, a division of Black Press, and a member of:

In the span of 365 days, the calendar year is filled with multiple festivities ranging from family-fun gatherings to more sobering recollections of reminiscences. There is always at least one occasion per month that is looked upon with either joy or sadness, and in some cases, a whole month is dedicated to a certain cause. This Sunday, Nov. 11 marks another year of remembrance as red poppies are pinned to the lapels of coats. From the tragedy of the First World War to the Second, the nuclear tension of the Cold War and the Vietnam and Korean wars in between, there has been no shortage of violence over the last two centuries. The most recent clashes in Iraq and Afghanistan, followed again by the unrest in Syria, Libya and Egypt, have kept the

news saturated with violence and political chaos. Though veterans from the first two world wars are no longer as prevalent as they have been in previous years, a younger generation (the peace keepers) can be seen joining the ranks. Though Remembrance Day is primarily focused on the disaster of the First and Second World Wars, it is also a day to reflect on those who have served the country past and present. I found out several years ago that my grandpa was conscripted into the Second

World War as a chef on board a navy vessel. At the time, he was a citizen of India and therefore by association under the British monarchy. Details are still sketchy, but from what records show, he spent three days on board before his ship was attacked. The ship ultimately sunk and he managed to get away with only the clothes on his back and breathe in his lungs. When the ship was attacked, my grandpa was in his bunk and not in the kitchens, and that alone may have been what saved his life. I am, of course, eternally grateful he survived, as I wouldn’t be around now if he hadn’t. It’s a close-up reminder that life is short and to count each breath as a blessing.

Wearing white poppies Editor: Remembrance Day is approaching and once again, I find myself conflicted about wearing the poppy. To me, it says, “Never Again,” and the commemoration of the fact that humanity had learned the lesson of the futility and fruitlessness of warfare on Armistice Day, 1918. Unfortunately, the world has been at war pretty well every day ever since. I read that Canada has spent close to $1 billion moving our troops (who began as “peacekeepers,” but ended as warriors) back from one small section of the Mideast wars for oil and Israel, that of the Afghanistan Theatre. What the actual cost was for that ill-advised adventure will likely never be admitted, but the pointlessness of sustaining this loss is obvious – the cost benefit ratio was about infinity to zip! This puts me into conflict about wearing the poppy. I wear it every year but I fear that to many it says, “Yay, War!” The TV will show columns of gung-ho cadets, reservists, and regular troops parading about with much pomp and ceremony to stirring music, displaying their tools of war. Having been a part of such celebrations, as a cadet and reservist, I wondered how my statement, poppy and all, was being interpreted. Was I rooting for more war, or attending a sad funeral, one both for the sucked-in uniformed victims of the fallacy that peace comes from the barrel of a gun, and for the proportionately, many more victims of this sick thinking; the millions of innocent civilians murdered in the name of “peace?” So I was gratified to learn of the White Poppy Movement. The alternative, or complementary, white poppy is the

symbol of a worldwide “project which challenges the beliefs, values and institutions that make war inevitable, and presents an alternative view of security and how to achieve it without violence.” At last! A poppy I can fully believe in! This year, they’re being offered in a few cafes and stores here in Grand Forks, but I for one will be working hard to see them universally on offer for next year. Pete Snidal, Grand Forks


Lest we forget

Editor: This poem was written by Nicholas Peters just after the outbreak of the Second World War. Peters emigrated from Russia in 1925 and had seen first-hand the horrors of revolution and war. He joined the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1942 and trained as a flying officer. He died in March of 1945, after his aircraft was hit by enemy fire. The poem is from a collection of Peters’ work entitled Another Morn. The Peters family has given permission to have the poem published. The Wars We Make I gaze into the world with sorrowing eyes And see the wide-abounding fruits of hate. We fight, we say, for peace, and find The wars we make To be a spring of hate and source of future wars. Is there no peace for man No hope that this accursed flow Of blood may cease Is this our destiny: to kill and maim For peace? Or is this `peace’ we strive to gain A thin unholy masquerade Which, when our pride, our greed, our gain is touched too far, Is shed, and stands uncovered what we are? Show me your light, O God That I may fight for peace with

! Congratulationtos

z OPINION peace And not with war; To prove my love with love, And hate no more! Some 20 years ago, my wife and I stood beside Peters’ grave in an allied war cemetery in Germany, with a huge sword on a cross backdrop, and, as I read the poem out loud, we grieved for him and the countless others buried there “row on row” in those graveyards of Europe. Quietly they lie now, sometimes friend and foe close together with so much of life still waiting to be lived. I dream of the day when all of us, governments included, will listen to this soldier’s plea. Stan Penner, Landmark Man.


Remember the vets Editor: I am a member of The War Amps Operation Legacy, which consists of young members and graduates of the Child Amputee (CHAMP) program who are dedicated to preserving and commemorating Canada’s military heritage. I had the privilege to learn about Canada’s military heritage and also know what it is like to live without a limb – a strong bond that I share with war amputee veterans. CHAMP was started by war amputee veterans and I want to give back to those who have given me so much. It’s important to remember our veterans. The individuals that left their families and lives behind to fight for us and our country deserve more than just remembrance. The bravery, strength and courage it took is not something easily found. I give all my respect to our war veterans. I encourage all of you to learn more about Canada’s history by means of The War Amps Military Heritage Series documentaries, which can be ordered at Kendra Blakely, Revelstoke, B.C.

SD51 connections

As I was reflecting on the work of the board and our staff for the past few months, it occurred to me just how connected we all are in the task of educating our students. Since just before school began in TERESA September, there have been numerREZANSOFF ous requests for feedback or support from education partners. The Ministry of Education has asked districts to assign a staff person(s) to initiatives such as ERASE Bullying, Changing Results for Young Readers and the Grad Requirements Dialogue. These initiatives have also involved requests for parent, public, trustee and general staff participation. Trustees have been asked to provide feedback to the auditor general of B.C. on a governance survey and to the BC School Trustees Association (BCSTA) on questions relating to the processes and structures related to teacher collective bargaining. None of this is especially different from past years, but it does serve to highlight the connections between the board of education and our co-governor of public education, the Ministry of Education and to our broader education partners, superintendents, principals and viceprincipals, teachers, parents, support staff, and students themselves. Together we all make up a support team working towards improving the success of kids. Examples of our connectedness include: • The Graduation Requirements Dialogue, which has involved all levels from school district staff to parents, trustees and community members and in a school near you soon. Students will be asked to directly contribute to what their graduation program should or could look like. • ERASE Bullying is a five-year, multi-level training program for 15,000 educators and community partners to help them identify and prevent bullying. • The BCSTA has circulated a set of questions on processes and structures related to teacher collective bargaining to all education partner associations and to every board in the province. The responses will be complied and will form the basis for a report back to the annual general meeting of the BCSTA in April. Additionally, because government has recently launched their own inquiry into issues related to collective bargaining with teachers, it will help to inform the directors of the BCSTA when they respond to the request for feedback from government. • The development of the Aboriginal Education Enhancement Agreement (the renewal of which was signed in June of this year) was an inclusive process that sought and received participation from many sources. • The District Achievement contract reflects emphasis from the Ministry of Education, the board itself and the broader Boundary community and is supported through the school growth plans in each of the schools in the school district. My point in relating all of this to you is to emphasize our connections to each other. None of us operate completely alone. Our work is inclusive and generally collaborative. While it may be true that we each have individual responsibility for various aspects of student success, in many seen and unseen ways we support each other. I believe this school district has done an excellent job of weaving together a network of support and connectedness that serves the needs of our students well. Does that mean we are perfect and there is no room for improvement? No, it doesn’t, but it does mean we are focused on a common goal of working towards improving success for all our students. That common goal is one of the things I value most about public education. – Teresa Rezansoff is chair for School District 51’s board of education

BANAC offers help for deer control

CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

The Boundary All Nations Aboriginal Council (BANAC) has offered assistance to the Grand Forks deer committee with possible solutions to the deer issue in the city. Should the city decide to proceed with a cull, BANAC has offered to do the cull and then use the meat, skins, bones, hooves and antlers for cultural purposes. If the city decides to relocate the deer or proceed with targeted fencing, the group would also like to take part. Danny Williamson, vice-president of BANAC and president of the local Métis Association, noted they are still in the process of discussing everything at the deer meetings. “We’re thinking that if there may be a cull then maybe we can get in and get the meat, the hides and use them instead of dumping them,” he explained. Williamson noted that should BANAC be involved in the cull, every

part of the deer would be used. “The Aboriginal people would use the meat, the hide, the antlers and every other piece they possibly can and put it to good use,” he said. “It’s part of our heritage and culture.” The hide would be used to create drums, the hooves would be used as clackers on traditional dance outfits, and the antlers can be made into buttons as well. “If there’s a relocation, we’d like to be a part of that too, but it’s hard to relocate deer because they end up getting injured and it’s probably not a good idea to go in that direction,” he said. “There is also the issue of fencing areas around the city that is being discussed. Nothing has been decided, and it doesn’t sound like anything will be decided in the near future.” A recent deer count in September has shown that the number of deer within the city has stabilized back to 2008 levels. There are currently around 154 deer living within the Grand Forks city lim-

its, down from last year’s 179. In 2007, the September count showed 131 deer and in 2008, there was 156 deer. In 2009, there was a count of 205 deer but the count was completed in early October, as opposed to the usual count taken in September. In 2010, there was 174 deer. Williamson pointed out that BANAC hopes to be able to offer a viable alternative to any of the solutions. “I do think the (deer committee) meetings are great because they have scientists, and hunters, and a number of people across the board who have various input on the topic,” he said. “There are people who are tracking numbers and looking at figures and they want everybody to be on board before a decision is made. It should give people in the community some peace of mind to know that the decision will not be made lightly and a lot of work is being done.” The next deer committee meeting will be on Nov. 20 at the Grand Forks Regional District of Kootenay Boundary office’s board room.

There is so much going on all the time, I just feel overwhelmed sometimes and can’t relax. Then, I get a cold or flu to top it all off! Any suggestions that aren’t habit forming or destructive?


Yes, everyone feels a bit like this sometimes. A frantic pace seems to manifest quite often. Making sure to address the body/mind/spirit, as a whole unit is very helpful. We lower our white blood cell count by stressing out and this can compromise our immunity. This time of year we have less Sun exposure, so less vitamin D. This adds to stress & lower immunity. Being more sedentary is also a factor in stress and lowered immunity. Countless responsibilities that weigh on our thoughts, lower our resiliency and immunity. Poor food choices also cause stress for the whole body. Temporary, minor stress is not harmful and most of us are able to deal with it well. In contrast, prolonged daily minor stresses accumulate and become as damaging as severe stressful events, even going as far as damaging physical, emotional and mental health. SO! What to do? Common sense solutions can help~ Stay hydrated throughout the day! Drink plenty of water, cut down on caffeine. Increase your antioxidants with plenty of veggies and seasonal fruits. Cut down or eliminate red meat- it is often difficult to digest and stresses the system. Regular exercise (walking is great) helps to calm oneself. Washing your hands frequently is a must. Making a 15 minute “me” time, for meditating, doing breathing exercises or stretching is a remarkable tool for enhancing immunity and restoring a calm life (work up to 30 minutes). Reiki, which is an ancient form of Japanese energy healing, is powerful yet gentle, non-invasive and can assist the body to return to balance and promote health and well-being by increasing the levels of life force energy in the body. Making sure you take B vitamins, extra Vitamin C and L-Theanine. L-Theanine is an amino acid, has proven to calm the mind, reduce stress and aid in sleep. Asking for guidance from a Certified Natural Products Advisor on which supplements are for enhancing immunity and reducing stress is a good idea. There are MANY options available for dealing with and working through the stress in our lives. At New West Trading Co.’85, we offer a helping hand to find the best choices for YOU! We KNOW our products! Reiki services from our Reiki Master, can be arranged by mid-month! Let us help you wind down and become healthier! Healthy Alternatives for over 28 years In Grand Forks!

How to have a successful job interview Black Press

When searching for a job and gaining an interview, there are a number of things you should keep in mind. According to Dylan Zorn, employment services CASE manager for Community Futures Boundary, the big rule of thumb is to check out the company you are applying for either through online research or through an informational interview, where you interview the employer. “Find out what they do, what services they provide or what products they sell. The first question I always ask as an interviewer is, ‘What do you know about our company?’” Wendy McCulloch, GM of Community Futures Boundary, recommends that people also know what job they are applying for. “Sometimes there are a number of jobs available and you will be asked, ‘What job are you here for?’ You may also find yourself walking into a room with three or four people who are part of an interview team. When they call for the interview, ask them if it is a panel interview,” McCulloch advises, adding it’s all part of the preparation. Here are some other tips: 1. Dress for success. Professional business clothes are always appropriate, regardless of the type of job you are interviewing for. Proper hygiene and a tidy appearance are important. Iron your clothes if you can and never wear strong perfumes or colognes. “Most offices

do not allow scents in the workplace,” explains Zorn. “If you have facial piercings and tattoos, take them out or cover them up before the interview. Ask what the company policy is around these lifestyle choices,” he says. 2. Be there on time. Try to arrive five or 10 minutes early to be safe. Find out ahead of time where you’re going and how long it will take to get there. Drive or travel the route a day or two ahead, at the same time of day as you will on the day of the interview. Have a back-up plan. 3. Let your personality shine. If you’re excited about the job, don’t be afraid to show it. Employers want passionate employees, so be yourself. Just remember to always keep it professional.

4. Be confident. Feeling nervous in an interview is perfectly normal; just don’t let your nerves overpower your interview. Eye contact and a calm, clear speaking voice are excellent ways to show your confidence. 5. Watch your body language. During your interview, relax and sit naturally, but don’t slouch in your chair or lean on the interviewer’s desk. Avoid chewing gum, or fidgeting with jewelry or your hair. 6. Be professional. This begins with a smile and a firm handshake. Remember, this is your first introduction to the organization, so be polite to everyone you meet and turn off your cell phone. 7. Listen and ask for clarification, if you need it. Remember to listen






carefully to the interview questions so that you actually answer the question, and never interrupt. If you don’t understand something, don’t be afraid to ask for clarification. Let them know what you have to offer. When answering the questions, let the employer see what you have to offer their organization. Talk about your past experiences and accomplishments without bragging, and tie those experiences to how they can help you contribute to their organization. Think before you speak. Although you want to be open and honest in your interview, avoid talking about your personal or financial problems. Don’t linger. Leave as soon as the interview is over, making sure you don’t linger. Shake the interviewer’s hand again, restate your interest in working for the organization, and thank them for the interview. Zorn says it’s also good to bring a portfolio. “Bring one and make sure it’s current and includes a photo,” he says. Having questions is also good according to Zorn. “Have a list of potential questions for or about the company, i.e. ‘What are your hours, are there benefits, is there flex time?’” Informational Interviews can be done prior to the actual interview or applying for the job says Zorn.

Reminiscences by Cassandra Chin A9


Kay McCaffrey

Founded in 1926, the Grand Forks Royal Canadian Legion has continued to hold a strong community presence within the city. Kay McCaffrey originally moved to Grand Forks in 1972 then returned in 1984. She joined the Grand Forks Royal Canadian Legion Branch #59 in 1985, though her husband William McCaffrey, a veteran of the Second World War, was previously a member. Though she and her husband met years after the war ended, McCaffrey noted that when he joined, it was instinctual she join as well. “I grew up in war time but not with a military family but there were a lot of restrictions,” explained McCaffrey of where she grew up. “I can remember them training in Winnipeg and the sky would be full of Lancaster Bombers because there was a training centre near there. But you grew up and you volunteered to help.”

Today and Everyday

Grand Forks’ Roxanne Priede is this year’s National Memorial (Silver) Cross Mother and will lay a wreath at the war memorial in Ottawa on Remembrance Day. Priede was named last Thursday by the Royal Canadian Legion and is mother of Master Corporal Darrell J. Priede, who died in Afghanistan in 2007. Each year, the Royal Canadian Legion selects a mother to lay a wreath at the National War Memorial on behalf of mothers who have lost children in the military, either in action or in the course of normal duty. She said that the event is going to be nerve-wracking and emotional. “It’s sad but an honour as well, of course representing my son and also to be able to stand and represent all mothers in Canada that have lost sons or daughters in the military,” Priede told the Grand Forks Gazette. Roxanne Priede lost her son in a Chinook helicopter crash on May 20, 2007 – Darrell was serving as an imagery technician and she said he was a vibrant man. “Darrell was just an amazing son,” Roxanne explained. “He was very fun-loving, always smiling, always ready for a joke, he was also very quiet. He stood back in the corner sometimes, listening and learning. He loved to travel, he enjoyed life to the fullest.” Priede went on to say that Darrell was also a loving husband and great brother. While the announcement was made last week, Priede has known for some time about being this year’s National Memorial (Silver) Cross mother. “I received a phone call on May 1, I believe,” she recollected. “There’s a committee that looks over who they want for Silver Cross mother so they called me and asked me if I would consider being Silver Cross mother and of course, in the blink of an eye, I was ready to say, ‘Yes,’ but

he said, ‘No, I’m going to give you the weekend to think it through and I want you to think about this. You need to do a bit of travelling and (you’ll) be representing mothers of Canada for the full year, so you need to be sure that it’s something you’d like to do.’ There wasn’t a moment that I thought I would decline it because it’s an amazing honour.” Priede will head to Ottawa with husband John and will receive a gold enameled legion crest in a shadow box at a luncheon on Nov. 10 at the Fairmont Chateau Laurier in Ottawa. The black train bridge in Grand Forks was renamed the Darrell J. Priede bridge back in May of 2011 in honour of Darrell.

In Flanders Fields In Flanders fields the poppies blow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely singing, fly Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the Dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow, Loved, and were loved, and now we lie In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe: To you from failing hands we throw The torch; be yours to hold it high. If ye break faith with us who die We shall not sleep, though poppies grow In Flanders fields. - John McCrae

Man from England helps restore Grand Forks vets’ gravestone


Gazette Editor

While Philip Morris, a man from Shrewsbury, England, has never been to Grand Forks before, his interest in the First World War has linked him to the city. He has been fascinated with the First World War since childhood, and it was because of this that he came across the story of a Grand Forks resident, Alfred Gyde Heaven. Alfred Heaven According to the April 28, 1917 edition of the Grand Forks Gazette, Heaven, 18 years of age, died of wounds sustained in the war on April 21, 1917. “In Loving Memory of Cpl. Alfred Gyde Heaven MM. of Grand Forks B.C. Born at Oakville, Ontario, Canada April 1st 1899. Died of Wounds April 21st 1917. Received at Vimy Ridge France,” is what is engraved on the headstone where he is buried. “The grave of (Heaven) came to my attention some years ago while I was researching Shropshire soldiers who died of wounds or disease, and are buried in the Shrewsbury General cemetery,” explained Morris from his home in England in August of 2010. “When I came across (his) grave, I could not believe how run down and neglected it was, at that first instance I cleaned what I could from his grave which was mostly overgrown weeds.” Thanks in part to the work of Morris, the gravestone has since been replaced.

After initial training, he and his battalion left for Liverpool, England aboard the S.S. Empress of Britain on June 20, 1916 and they arrived at their destination some eight days later. He was sent to France, arriving at Le Havre on Aug. 28, and after fighting at Ypres for some months, he was promoted to Lance Corporal on Nov. 6. After fighting on the Somme sector five days later, he was awarded the military medal for, “gallant conduct and remarkable ability and powers of command” amongst other things. A promotion to full corporal came on Jan. 17, 1917 and on April 9, he and the 102nd battalion took part in the battle at Vimy Ridge where Heaven suffered some major injuries. “It was during this action that Cpl. Heaven was seriously wounded in the jaw and face, this was a costly af-

fair for the 102nd Battalion as they suffered over 300 casualties killed, wounded and missing,” Morris said. After being sent to the Berrington War Hospital in Shrewsbury, where he arrived on April 19, he was found to be in serious condition and died of his wounds two days later at the age of 18. There was a ceremony of remembrance for Heaven in Shrewsbury on Sept. 22. Morris laid a wreath on behalf of the City of Grand Forks and Heaven’s name is on the cenotaph at Grand Forks City Hall. – With files from the Aug. 13, 2010 issue of the Boundary Advertiser.

The Fire Suppression program has seen an increase in student interest this year, with two classes being offered outside the regular secondary school timetable. “The numbers are higher than we anticipated since we usually we just have one block with 12 students participating,” Strukoff said. “This year we have around 26 students between the two areas, so we introduced a second block. There will be one for BCSS (Boundary Central Secondary School and one for GFSS (Grand Forks Secondary School), so we do have a full complement of students in there.” Instructed by retired principal Walt Osellame, the program is currently taught at GFSS and BCSS. There may be instances where both schools will learn together during the use of specialized equipment. The Fire Suppression program trains young men and women, usually Grade 12 students, so that they are put in a position where they can find jobs with either the forestry services or fire fighters or with some


of the contractors within the area. The program teaches students about how fires are started and what to do to stop a fire. “They get certifications, such as with chainsaw use and WHIMIS (Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System, as well as a credit,” Strukoff explained. “It’s a culmination of helping students bolster their resume and gain a credit.” The course began in 1999 and used to be sponsored by the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources Operations forestry division. Strukoff noted that the ministry has pulled away from the program since it began. “They used to guarantee the top three students a summer job,” he said. “We still have an individual (Osellame) who has the qualifications to provide the training and if we lose that individual, we won’t be able to provide the service for students.” The forestry division still provides advice, consultation and lends some equipment to the program.

On Oct. 14, members of the Grand Forks Wildlife Association (GFWA) took part in an ecosystem restoration project in the Volcanic Creek area. Using chainsaws, brush saws and hand tools, the group slashed and piled small diameter conifers and brush species. The aim of the project is to create a more open, grassland ecosystem that resembles historic ecological conditions more conducive to supporting ungulates (hoofed animals) and other wildlife species. It is widely recognized that grassland areas have been shrinking as forests encroach – the result of a policy of excluding wildfires from the landscape. Cutting small trees and piling them for future burning helps create more grassland and cutting shrubs encourages them to re-sprout with new shoots that provide critical winter food for ungulates. A second phase will involve burning the

slash piles, with the long-term goal of conducting open burns to maintain the grassland. The GFWA contributed this labour as part of a larger ecosystem restoration project under the authority of local Ministry of Lands, Forests, and Natural Resource Operations’ staff and funded through a grant from the Habitat Conservation Trust Fund. The Volcanic Creek area is one of several areas in the Boundary that have been identified for assessment and treatment over the three-year term of the grant. Many members of the group feel that deer populations (particularly mule deer) in our area have declined precipitously over the last 15 years and helping to improve habitat is one way of stemming that decline. A second cutting and piling exercise is planned for the early spring. The Grand Forks Wildlife Association is a group of hunters and fishers who are concerned with wildlife conservation and encouraging outdoor recreation for all ages.

The City is seeking individuals who have the ability to create from a metal medium, a prototype of a metal art or hanging basket that may include metal flowers, leaves or other items for the purpose of a long term solution for hanging displays on some of the light standards within the City. This pilot project will see those interested in participating, providing a cost quote and design specifications for their rendition of metal art that would compliment within a size ratio to the City’s Light Standard. The following points are the suggested criteria when considering this prototype project: CRITERIA • The art must be made with longevity in mind. The purpose of this project is to provide an eye appealing dimensional or good visual depiction from more than one direction, a work art that reflects the community and/or area, and that will remain for years to come with very little maintenance and has a provision for rain and snow drainage for year ‘round display. Suggestions include hanging floral displays, or other metal artwork, which would depict characteristics relevant to our community or area. • The project must be large enough to compliment the City’s light standards and should be a minimum dimension of 30 inches x 30 inches, up to a maximum of 36 inches x 36 inches, and will require the means to provide adequate hanging support to securely hang the project from the City’s light standards and to deter theft. • The metal mix needs to be identified in the request, but is the artist’s choice as long as the medium is geared for longevity. The City is foremostly seeking the artist’s individual creativity and welcomes all suggestions and ideas. • The City may consider the concepts from more than one artist and acceptance of all prototypes will be within the total allotted City funding of $3,000. The artist will supply, within their request for proposal, the total cost required of their project including any applicable taxes. All accepted prototypes by the City, will become the property of the City. • If the Pilot Project is proven successful, The City of Grand Forks, through its annual budgeting process, may determine to continue this program in the following years and offer opportunities to our valued talented artisans. Requests for proposals should be submitted either in person to 7217 – 4th Street – Grand Forks City Hall; by mail to: The City of Grand Forks, P.O. Box 220, Grand Forks, BC, V0H 1H0; or via email to (Please note: if sending by email, please verify with the writer that your proposal has been received.) Deadline for submissions is Thursday, December 13th, 2012 at 3:30 PM If further information is required, please feel free to contact Diane Heinrich, Corporate Officer, for the City of Grand Forks at or by phone 250-4428266.

Phoenix Foundation turns 15

CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

The Phoenix Foundation of the Boundary Communities will be celebrating its 15th anniversary tomorrow (Nov. 8). Established in 1997, the foundation was created by a group of community people who saw a need to fill the gap in funding for community organizations. Executive director Mona Mattei noted that the Boundary region is quite small when compared to other regions in the province. “Whenever a local non-profit organization applies for a grant, they’re always competing against huge organizations and huge numbers of organizations if they are applying for a provincial or federal funding,” she said. “What they were seeing is that small community organizations were not getting the funding support that they need.” The aim of the Phoenix Foundation is to hold money in an endowment fund that is held in perpetuity, meaning the money is never taken out of the bank and that everything is done through donations and corporate sponsors. “Investment funds will then invest the money on behalf of the community and manage that investment,” Mattei said. “Every year we take the returns from that investment and give it back to the community. It allows for small level grants right across the region to support the work that they do.” Mattei pointed out that the Phoenix Foundation is a success story in Canada. “We’re the little foundation that

could,” she said. “We have one of the The Phoenix Foundation will be highest per population rates of donation hosting their annual social to celebrate of any community foundation in Cana- their 15th anniversary tomorrow night da and our community has been incred- at Gallery 2 starting at 6:30 p.m. A preibly supportive. ” sentation from the Hope Lady, Wendy Over the past 15 years, the Phoenix Edey, will begin at 7 p.m. Foundation has given $800,000 back to For more information, visit phoenixthe community through grants from their investment funds and hosting bursary funding.

From its humble beginnings in the swamps and bogs of Asia, the ski has risen to noble heights. I cross-country (Nordic) ski; I’m not particularly good at it but that’s just the thing, you don’t have to be. No matter your level, from novice to black diamond ice and powder buster, the benefits of the sport are numerous. Nordic skiing is a low impact, total body workout with numerous health benefits, including being the ultimate calorie burner and an exceptional cardio exercise. It also rewards the skier with a pretty fine endorphin high. Sure, that is stock information, so how about this? Nordic skiing is, what I consider, a foundation sport, one that the whole family can enjoy together. From it people derive balance, strength, endurance and co-ordination, and who could put a value on quality family time on a groomer or in the trees? Nordic skiing is available to everyone regardless of age, with somewhat normal mobility. The low impact nature of the sport makes it ideal for good joint health and the equipment, compared to some other sports, is relatively economical, especially if you have kids. As a matter of fact I can’t measure the amount of pleasure I’ve gotten from a pair of skis I picked up for 10 bucks at a yard sale. Don’t skimp on the footwear. Local rental is available as well, with reasonable season rates. We are fortunate, that within an easy drive, we have access to very good trails and some ex-

hilarating off piste (no trail) adventures. Some Nordic hounds even seek the full moon experience, likening it to “skiing through diamonds.” Sometimes on a backwoods, moonlit night, those are howls of joy, not wolves or coyotes. A short drive from Grand Forks and Greenwood is the Marshall Lake trail system, maintained by the Phoenix Cross Country Ski Society. The last couple of years have seen improvements to the trail system so that there is more comfortable access for those breaking into the sport, including the installation of Graham Loop, close to the parking lot. A short ski in from the parking lot is the dacha, a sizable hut with a stove, chairs, table – a sweet little hangout for a warm, dry rest and good snack and chocolate is OK since you’ll be burning it off anyway. This Saturday (Nov. 10), the society will be holding its AGM. There will be snacks and non-alcoholic beverages and anyone purchasing a $10 season membership will be eligible to win a light, flashy sport vest. The meeting will be at 7 p.m. at the BCCRR building (next to Panago in Grand Forks). You are welcome to join us for banter and maybe even a lie or two concerning personal skiing achievements. One point on the agenda will be the establishment of a Jack Rabbit ski program for getting the youngsters out on the trails in good style. Anyone wishing an agenda or more information regarding the sport or the club feel free to e-mail or phone at 250-442-2459.

Grand Forks gains point on road

The Grand Forks Border Bruins gained a point in the standings after losing 5-4 in double overtime to the Spokane Braves on the road on Sunday. Dominic Stadnyk was in goal and stopped 37 of 42 shots while Connor Kidd, newcomer Jacob Jeske, Connor Gross and Kyle Dolly scored for the

Gazette Editor A23 Border Bruins. “We definitely saw a lot of positives to take away from that game,” explained Nick Deschenes, Border Bruins’ head coach and GM. “We were in a position we hadn’t been in yet this year, where we had a lead going into the third period and as a coach, you want your team to experience all aspects of competing and winning and losing and so it’s another learning experience for them.”

Sunday’s game saw the team perform better on the heels of an 8-0 loss to the Castlegar Rebels two nights earlier. “I think we have a pretty resilient group,” Deschenes said. “They understand that this is a process and we’re a very young team and for us, as a coaching staff, the challenge is it’s a daily thing. It’s not about yesterday or even two days from now, it’s about what are you doing today to get better?”

Royal Canadian


With the economic downturn, can debt be seen in biblical references? The news warns us that Canada has a major problem regarding its vast household debt. Many are in bondage because they just “got to have” that next little LARRY DANNHAUER gadget now. Of course that little plastic card makes it possible. But in no time at all, it becomes a powerful bondage, and some begin to pay only the interest and are never able to reduce the amount that was initially borrowed. The apostle Paul in Romans 13:8 talks about two kinds of debt. He is talking about financial debt and he is talking about a spiritual and moral debt when he says, “Let no debt remain outstanding, except the continuing debt to love one another …” Yes, one must avoid useless expense and stay away from debts that they do not have the ability to pay off. But even if one pays off all of their debts, according to the verse in Romans 13:8 they would still be in debt, “… the continuing debt to love one another.” We are all in this kind of debt and this debt we cannot be free from. In regards to financial debt: Is it wrong to borrow money? Our verse says, “owe no man anything.” If you have borrowed money to buy a house or a car, are you disobeying scripture? If you have credit card debt are you disobeying this verse? If the answer is yes, I think there would be a lot of us that are disobedient to the Word of God. I don’t really think the verse

z View From The Pulpit

is saying that we should never borrow money. In fact if we go back to the Old Testament we find that borrowing was allowed but Deuteronomy also makes it very clear that debt should be limited. It must be paid off in a reasonable time. The New Testament also recognizes that borrowing may take place. In fact, the Lord talks about this in Matthew 5:42. He makes reference to lending to those who ask. So, there doesn’t seem to be a problem with borrowing or lending. However, we must never borrow beyond our means; we should never extend ourselves to the point where we cannot meet our obligations. There are many studies about what makes people happy. Over the last year, income has more than doubled but happiness has declined. The only time that more money and more things can actually increase happiness is when it raises a family from extreme poverty to the place of getting their basic needs met. But beyond that, the evidence is overwhelming that simply getting more and more and more does not produce an increase in happiness – often it is the opposite. What is the conclusion of the matter? Our debt to love one another is ever present, and in regards to our financial debt, it must be limited and we must be regular in making our payments. In Proverbs 27:21 it says, “The wicked borrows and does not pay back.” As long as we are making the payments according to the agreement with the other individual, I think we are meeting the requirements of the financial part of Romans 13:8. – Larry Dannhauer is senior pastor of the Grand Forks Christian Centre

C.W. “Don” Gordon OMM CD Sqn Ldr (ret).

On October 11, 2012 Don Gordon, age 81, passed away with his wife by his side, at Hardy View Lodge in Grand Forks after a long illness. Don was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba to William Copp and Alice Maie Gordon in 1931. The family moved to Rossland, B.C when he was 9 years old, to join their father who was working at Consolidated Mining and Smelting in Trail. He graduated from the Trail High School in 1950 and attained the highest mark in mathematics in the Province of B.C. He was active with the Army Cadets, rising to the rank of Captain. He went on to attend University of British Columbia but with his love of airplanes, considered the RCAF as a future career. Don joined the RCAF and began pilot training at Claresholm, Alberta, winning the J.D. Siddely Junior Pilots Trophy for the highest mark in the class on graduation. His first posting was to Greenwood, Nova Scotia to train on the Lancaster Bomber and hence to Comox, British Columbia. On a temporary posting he flew the arctic ice patrol and Nike missile trials in Churchill, Manitoba. Here he met his wife, Ann, who worked as a Lab Technician for Northern Defense Research Laboratory. Following their marriage in 1955 Don was transferred to Trenton, Ontario, to train as a flight instructor on the Harvard aircraft. The Commonwealth Training Program had a base at Claresholm, Alberta where Don became one of their flight instructors. This program was disbanded in1958 and Don was transferred into the Radar Detection Unit in Quebec and Falconbridge, Ontario until 1960. In 1960 he began training on the mighty Argus aircraft, tasked with Atlantic submarine reconnaissance for Maritime Air Command in Greenwood, NS. This four engine aircraft with a crew of 18 was loaded with “black boxes” for detection of all types of ships and submarines. During the Cuban Missile Crisis he was flying over the Russian ship carrying the missiles aimed at the U.S. when the orders came from Russia for the ships to return to Russia, thus ending the crisis. Don gained many accolades for his innovations, inventions, unbroken records and expertise in submarine detection on the Argus. After setting records for submarine detection during maritime military exercises in Florida he was invited to join the U.S. Navy as a Commander. When the proposal did not include his whole crew, he declined. Following a promotion to Squadron Leader, a two-year tour at Headquarters in Ottawa was followed by Don’s last flying tour in 1970 as Base Operations Officer and then captain of the Hercules aircraft out of Namao north of Edmonton, Alberta. The Hercules tour took Don all over the world performing many roles for NATO. At the end of the Arab-Israeli war in 1973 he was appointed United Nations Airlift Commander to set up the UN Emergency Force base at Ismailiya, Egypt to ensure a complete cease fire was observed on both sides. He was responsible for regular arrival of Hercules flights supplying peace keepers, food and emergency items. On one occasion he entertained President Anwar Sadat who came to greet the Canadian forces. Don was active in the Namao base becoming president of the Community Minor Hockey Association, providing 300 kids from 6 to 16 with the ability to hone their skills. He spent endless hours flooding outdoor rinks, aided by the base fire department as well as on the phone organizing other events. For his outstanding contribution to his military community he was awarded the Order of Military Merit, OMM in 1974, presented to him by the then Governor General Jules Leger at Rideau Hall in Ottawa. In 1975 Don took early retirement from the RCAF after 9,571 hours of military flying experience. Later that year accepted the MOT position of Airport Manager in Watson Lake, Yukon and relocated the family. Two years later he accepted the position of Operations Manager at the Edmonton Municipal Airport until his retirement in 1996. During the 20 years in Edmonton he developed the Namao Flying Club where he taught many eager young people to fly and obtain their pilots license. Working with son Bob assisted in the development of the technical engine adjustment for the conversion of small aircraft engine to use “auto gas” instead of avgas. They won the “Innovation in Aircraft Technical Development” award. With all three children on their own and well established, it was time to find a warmer place to retire. Grand Forks had been near a childhood haunt of Don’s and his wife agreed to settle here in 1997. His airport knowledge was valuable to the city when the proposal to install night lighting for night medivac was approved. He assisted the City Engineer to establish the correct location for the lighting. He leaves to grieve his wife Ann of 57 years; daughter Alyson and husband Kerry of Smithers, British Columbia; son Bob and wife Gladys of Calgary Alberta; son Cameron of Edmonton, Alberta; and granddaughter Natalie from St Albert, Alberta; three sisters, Diane of Sydney, British Columbia, Mearle and Margaret of Spokane Washington; and, brother Bryan of Ottawa, Ontario. His oldest son David A. Gordon of Edmonton predeceased his father in 1980. It is with deep appreciation we extend our thanks to the doctors, nurses and care giving staff at Hardy View Lodge who provided Don with loving care during his last days. To friends and neighbours who sent cards, flowers, baking, phone calls and visits, our deepest appreciation. Grand Forks Funeral Home had care of arrangements.

Card of Thanks The Family and Friends of the late Iris Manson wish to thank: The Drs, RNs, LPNs, Care Aides, and the Staff and Volunteers of Hardy View Lodge for their exceptional care and kindness.
