Rezoning could mean RMR golf course not likely for many years Unusual down-zoning application from resort to rural residential means only one residence allowed, proposed RMR golf course land could be Balkanized Aaron Orlando

An application to rezone a 56-acre property slated for golf course development at Revelstoke Mountain Resort paints a picture of a links development likely to be deferred for years, if it is developed at all. On Nov. 22, the City of Revelstoke’s Advisory Planning Commission (APC) debated an application by Mck-Kids Holdings Ltd. to downzone the McKinnon Road property from Comprehensive Development Zone 8 to Rural Residential 60. If approved, this effectively withdraws the property from the Revelstoke

Provincial government appoints Jumbo resort council Opponents say new Jumbo municipality with no residents a private land grab granted by Liberal government ahead of 2013 election NICOLE TRIGG & AARON ORLANDO Black Press
In an exclusive interview with Minister of Community, Sport and Cultural Development Bill Bennett, The Valley Echo learned the B.C. government has issued the legal paperwork for a new mountain resort municipality in the Jumbo Valley by the name of Jumbo Glacier Resort. “As is the custom with a new municipality like this, we are appointing a mayor and two councillors,” Bennett said. The $450-million high elevation glacier based ski resort is planned in three phases and will ultimately include 5,500 bed-units in a 104-hectare resort base area. It is projected to provide approximately 3,750 people years of construction employment and create 750 to 800 permanent full-time jobs. Its newly appointed mayor is Greg Deck, and councillors
are Nancy Hugunin and Steve Ostrander. Hugunin is a wellknown local entrepreneur, mother and grandmother, and serves as the Kootenay Regional Chairperson for the BC Ski Association. Ostrander, a retired professional forester, is currently a director for the Columbia Valley Food Bank, the Lake Windermere District Lions Club and the Columbia Headwaters Community Forest Initiative. Deck was the first mayor of Radium Hot Springs when it incorporated and held that position for 18 years until retiring from office in 2008. “He also sat on the regional district board and was chair for many years so he has experience,” said Bennett. “He’s also very credible and is known for his personal integrity.” He stressed that Deck will not be working for either the developer or the province. Retiring chief administrative officer from the town of Golden Phil Taylor will

be the interim corporate offer, and will spend the next few months creating an original set of bylaws for the new community and ensuring that the municipality is operational
by its official incorporation date of February 19, 2013. “He’ll work with Greg and the two councillors and it will operate the same as any mayor and coun-
cil,” Bennett said. “Everything they do will be subject to the Local Government Act and the Community Charter.” While the mayor and council will be responding to the developer’s requests for zoning and rights to build roads, streets and other infrastructure, the developer — Glacier Resorts Ltd. — will deal largely with the province in terms of the access road, construction of lifts, gondolas and so forth on Crown land. “I think it’s important for me to say that the Regional District of East Kootenay passed a resolution in 1996 to ask the province to create a mountain resort municipality,” Bennett said. “That resolution has stayed on their books for ten years, there was a brief period of a couple of years when they changed their mind and then back in 2009 they passed another resolution going back to the original one where they

Earlier this year, when curbside recycling started in Revelstoke, Inge Anhorn was disappointed to learn that apartment buildings weren’t included. “That’s not right,” she thought. Instead of sitting around, she decided to take action. She went around the Selkirk Gardens apartment building where she lives and encouraged everyone to start recycling. She then arranged it so the recyling truck would stop outside and pick it up. The result is that most of the building’s residents are now putting aside their recyclables. On recycling day, they collect it all, bag it up and put it outside. The haul amounts to about 15 bags every week. “I do it to entice other people to take part,” Anhorn told me on recycling day last week. “The response is very good. I’m really amazed.” What about other apartment buildings – can they take part? Only if they’re part of a strata where the units are individually owned and therefore individually taxed.

Canis lupus familiaris? attack update Aaron Orlando
There’s been a new twist in the rumoured Nov. 8 grey wolf attack on CPR Hill reported in our Nov. 21 issue. A young man who didn’t want to be identified contacted the Times Review to insist he did have an encounter in the dark with a charging four legged animal. He told us he got a minor cut on his knuckles when he instinctively raised his hand to defend against the lunging animal, and that he had stabbed it with a screwdriver he had in the pocket of his work pants. He said the Times Review messages to him about the incident never got through. He also said he reported it to the B.C. Conservation Officer Service – the Times Review wrote it hadn’t been reported to the provincial body that deals with wildlife complaints. Revelstoke Sgt. Adam Christie apologized to the Times Review for not following up with us. Our call to him came two days before the incident was reported to him. Christie said he concluded that it wasn’t a wolf attack, so he didn’t think to follow up. “[It’s] 90 per cent a dog or 10 per cent a coyote,” Christie told the Times Review. Christie added that grey wolf attacks are extremely rare. The young man said it was about 8:30 p.m. and very dark. He didn’t get a good look at the animal. “It very well could have been a dog,” he said, adding: “I haven’t heard of anyone’s dog being stabbed.” Blood on the screwdriver had been wiped off by the time it was reported, so testing wasn’t possible, Christie said. Aside from this incident, there have been six dog bites reported and recorded so far this year by the City of Revelstoke’s animal control department.

Province to fund Jumbo council’s activities Jumbo, from page 1 asked government to create a mountain resort municipality as the form of governance for this project. “So we are in step with local government; we’re going with what they have asked us to do, we agree with local government that mountain resort municipality is the most effective way to deal with this project.” When asked if mountain resort municipality status would permit Jumbo Glacier Resort to apply for provincial infrastructure funding for a new access road, Bennett replied that the B.C. government would not entertain an application from council for infrastructure support until there had been a democratic election with people residing in the resort municipality. “The dealings that the proponent will have with the province over the access road and over infrastructure and all those kinds of things will be exactly the same as any proponent in the same circumstances,” he said. “So in other words, the proponent here is not going to get any special deal on the access road. Whatever is the
normal arrangement between a ski resort developer and the Province is the arrangement that we’ll have here.” Bennett was quick to point out that over a dozen municipalities around the province were created when mines or dams were being built to provide a form of governance for the workers living there. “And if (Jumbo Glacier Resort) goes ahead,” he said, “it will be a game changer for tourism in British Columbia … we will have something in British Columbia that does not exist anywhere else in North America.” He equated Western Canada’s single biggest tourist attraction — the gondola in Banff — to Glacier Resorts Ltd.’s proposed gondola to the top of Glacier Dome overlooking the Lake of the Hanging Glacier. “(It) will be about as spectacular an attraction as there is anywhere in North America,” Bennett said. “I’m not in the business of predicting whether a proponent’s going to be successful, whether we’re talking about a mine or a resort or any other type of business venture,” he continued, “but
if this does proceed, it definitely does have the potential to employ hundreds and hundreds of local people and to be a game changer in tourism.” With respect to the widespread opposition the proposed resort has met from local First Nations, environmentalists and Kootenay residents as well as further afield, Bennett said the government would work through any sort of protests, including road blockages, should they happen to come up. “We’re hoping that the opponents of the project will respect the law, and we’re also hoping that they will respect the due process that has led over the past 22 years to the Environmental Assessment Certificate in 2005, to the Master Development Plan in March 2012, and now to the incorporation of the mountain resort municipality,” said Bennett. “It’s a due process, everyone has had their chance to say what they think; the proponent has done what governments have over the years have asked of them, and now there’s a decision and the proponent now has a right to build the project.”
Minister fleshes out details
In a Nov. 20 press conference, Minister Bennett said the province would spend $260,000 in 2013 on the resort municipality, including salaries. He avoided direct questions about other expenses that provincial taxpayers would bear for the municipality, saying it was a good investment. “This is not unusual for a province to assist a new municipality in its first year,” he said. “At end of 2013 we’ll take a look at where the resort is at and we’ll make a determination about whether there are sufficient funds for the mayor and council to continue with its work and we’ll make a decision then. I’m not going to preclude additional funding from the ministry.” Bennett was hopeful the new, three-person council would be successful. “We’ll keep a watch over how they do busi-
ness. I’ve got a lot of faith in all three of them,” he said. In response to questions from the Times Review, Bennett said the government would re-appoint a mayor and council when the current appointees’ term runs out on Nov. 30, 2014. “Towards the end of 2013 we’ll make a decision as to whether or not we’re going to re-appoint the current mayor and council or whether we’re going to appoint somebody else,” he said. He said the letters patent for the municipality say the town must have an property assessment roll of $30 million before an election – or by 2017, depending on what comes first. “We believe this is the right thing to do for British Columbia,” Bennett said. “The news here is that we have an opportunity to have a ski resort created in British Columbia that will be unparalleled anywhere in North America. Guaranteed snow at Christmas. What other ski resort in North America can say that? Guaranteed natural snow at Christmas time. Five large glaciers to ski on. There is no ski resort like this in North America. This can be a game changer for us.”
Opponents call Jumbo ‘giveaway of public lands’ AARON ORLANDO
Reaction to the B.C. Government decision to create a Mountain Resort Municipality for the controversial Jumbo Glacier Resort was swift, with criticism coming in from numerous directions moments after the B.C. Liberal government announced the decision. Norm Macdonald (NDP), the MLA for Columbia River-Revelstoke, where Jumbo is located, characterized the announcement as a “giveaway of public lands in the Kootenays.” He noted the BC Liberals were making the decision just six months before a general elec-
tion. He pointed to opposition from the Union of British Columbia Municipalities, who in September of this year opposed an amendment made to the Local Government Act earlier in the year that allowed the government to create the Jumbo Mountain Resort Municipality. “I’ve not spoken to anyone outside the BC Liberal party who thinks that this legislation makes sense,” Macdonald said. “To create a town where there are no residents, to appoint a council that may never face election, and do this with no real possibility that a resort will be built is ridiculous. But a small group of Jumbo supporters are get-
ting their way on this one: transferring control of public lands into private hands. “One has to ask why the BC Liberals would press forward with this designation at this time. This resort will never be built, and after more than a decade, the developer has not been able to find an investor,” Macdonald continued. “It’s a shocking mismanagement of the powers that have been vested in this government and is indicative of just how far this government has strayed. There is no one that can say this move today is in the public interest. It’s a tremendous abuse of power that voters in this area will reject.” He said the resort does not make

economic or environmental sense and noted opposition from the Ktunaxa First Nation, who announced plans to apply for a judicial review of the decision to approve Jumbo Glacier Resort. The Ktunaxa plan to file the review in the B.C. Supreme Court in Cranbrook on Nov. 30. “Ktunaxa have been on record as being opposed to this resort since it was first proposed, principally on the spiritual importance of the Qat’muk area for Ktunaxa people, as well as the concerns for the protection of wildlife populations, biodiversity and water quality,” said Ktunaxa spokesperson Kathryn Teneese in statement.
East Kootenay environmental organization Wildsight also panned the move. “This decision flies in the face of democratic land-use decisions, overwhelming public opposition, grizzly bear science, First Nations spiritual claims and opposition from the Union of BC Municipalities (UBCM),” said Wildsight program manager Robyn Duncan. “Land-use decisions should be made locally,” she said. “This process is an end-run around the local democratic process and it ignores the advice of the government’s own grizzly bear biologists, who have said that the Jumbo Glacier Resort would threaten the viability of grizzly bears in the Purcell Mountains.”

Chamber directors (from left) Scott Duke, Trevor English, Chelsea Lamont, Michelle Nagy, Sreve Bailey, Peter Aaron Orlando/Revelstoke Times Review Nielsen and Randy Driediger. AARON ORLANDO
Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce members voted in five directors at a Nov. 21 election. New to the board are Scott Duke, Trevor English and Peter Nielsen. Steve Bailey and Randy Driediger were reelected at the meeting. They’ll join returning directors Chelsea Lamont, Michelle Nagy, Brydon Roe, Mike Vopni and Nathan Weston. The three departing directors are Sally Carmichael, Poppi Reiner and Angela Waterson. Prior to the election, the new directors gave short speeches about their plans: Peter Nielsen is manager at the Sutton Place Hotel and the Sandman Inn. He worked in the hotel industry prior to moving to Revelstoke with his wife Tara and kids in 2006. He’s held several management positions and has served with a hotel industry trade association. He hopes to bring insight into resort development to the board. Steve Bailey is the director of skier services at Revelstoke Mountain Resort. He’s served with the chamber for the past five years. He said the chamber has made great strides working on taxation issues and hopes to bring continuity to the board. Randy Driediger is the general manager for Revelstoke Credit Union Insurance. The Revelstoke native serves with several community organizations including Rotary, Trees for Tots and sporting organizations. He wants to work towards rebuilding chamber membership, creating more value in membership and focusing on issues affecting members. Trevor English is the general manager at the Revelstoke Red Apple, and has extensive experience in retail business. In a brief speech, he said his position puts him in contact with a large socio-economic segment of the community, and he hopes to bring insight into retail business issues to the board. Scott Duke of Stoke FM, Revelstoke Property Services and Duke’s Dogs shared his experiences starting businesses in Revelstoke, saying he’s interested in bringing action-oriented insight to the board.
REVELSTOKE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE NEWS The chamber hosts downtown latenight shopping event Moonlight Madness on Nov. 30. The chamber’s annual Santa Claus Parade is on Dec. 8 starting at 4 p.m. The theme this year is ‘Country Christmas.’ Any group, business or organization is welcomed to participate in the free event. Participants gather at the Revelstoke Courthouse for the 4 p.m. start. The route is along First Street to Mackenzie Avenue, and along Mackenzie to the end, finishing at Queen Elizabeth Park. Organizer Brett Renaud would appreciate anyone participating let the chamber know and fill out a form to help organizers marshall the parade. Santa’s filled out his form already and will be in a horsedrawn carriage at the back of the parade. “There is no other Santas in the parade other than the one in the back,” Renaud reminded participants. The chamber is hosting new ‘12 at 12’ lunchtime focus groups. They bring together 10 members, the executive director and an expert to focus on specific issues. Business signage issues will be the topic of an upcoming meeting on Dec. 12. Jean-Marc LaFlamme is working on the new chamber website, which should be up by the end of the month. The next chamber social event will be held at the Hillcrest Hotel on Dec. 13. from 5–7 p.m. The after-work gatherings are a chance for a little food, drink and mingling. It’s back to the future now that the HST has been defeated. The chamber will host a seminar on Jan. 22 advising businesses on how to go back to the PST. An expert will lead a session and answer questions. The time hasn’t been set yet.
SKI TRADE SHOWS QUIET, BUT FORT MCMURRAY A SUCCESS Revelstoke Accommodation Association executive director Tom Tischuk updated chamber members on some of his recent trips to winter trade shows. He said big ski trade shows in Toronto, San Francisco and Los Angeles were all down in terms of numbers. On the bright side, United Airlines is starting a new direct flight service from Los Angeles to Kelowna
on Dec. 20. Response to the daily flights has been very good; Tischuck reported the airline has already booked an extra flight. In contrast to diminished interest in major centres, which Tischuck attributed to ongoing economic malaise, a recent visit to a home show in Fort McMurray was a big success. 17,000 people attended a four-day home show at the Suncor Community Leisure Centre. “It was amazing,” he said, noting line-ups out the door. The RAA team pushed ski and sled stay and play packages to the many mostly male, mostly high-income attendees.

December 3 is the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. Celebrating the lives of persons with disabilities in our community is a monumental shift from even 50 years ago, a time when disabled people were often sent to institutions, or at best, living with a family member but not included in the larger community. Over recent years, the disability community has pushed to have their human rights recognized. With Canada’s ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) in 2010, Canada has begun the long journey to addressing failures and successes in our system. Revelstoke is in many ways a leader in addressing Article 19 of the Convention, which addresses “the right to live in the community.” Over the past few weeks, I have been immersed in an online Human Rights course focusing on the CRPD. My classmates literally represent all corners of the world and everything in between. After reading about and listening to stories regarding the situation for disabled people in the countries represented by my classmates, as this past week we addressed Article 19, I thought I would reflect on our own community’s work at building inclusion
and diversity. Article 19(b) of the CRRP declares that “Persons with disabilities have the opportunity to choose their place of residence and where and with whom they live on an equal basis with others and are not obliged to live in a particular living arrangement.” I reached out to Kelly Riguedell, the program manager for the local community living services for adults, and discussed with her the diversity of residential options for community members with disabilities in Revelstoke. In addition to the two group homes run by Community Connections, there are a number of other options available for persons with disabilities living in our community who require varying degrees of support. According to Riguedell, there are “several home-shares, where people live with a family. In this way, we make sure that the individual resident is included in every aspect of life.” The concept behind these home-shares is to ensure that members of our community who require some support have the option of living in a family setting where they can be included in community life to a fuller extent than they may experience living on their own. Community Connections staff believe strongly in real choices. Part of the role of the team is to inform individuals and their families of the variety of choices available for community living and involvement. The key to inclusion is not merely informing individuals that they have choices, but rather ensuring that they know of the various options available. The sharing of information is followed by supporting individuals in making informed decisions on what situation will work best for their needs and wishes. Community Living BC has representatives in most BC communities, including the North Okanagan Community Council, of which Kelly Riguedell is the Revelstoke community representative member. She
assured me in our conversation that members of our community who have concerns or questions could either contact Community Connections or attend and voice their concerns to the Council. The Community Connections team is working towards connecting non-disabled people in our community with persons with disabilities. “The goal is building and sustaining relationships,” Riguedell said. “Everybody deserves to live a full, goodquality life, and we believe this can be done through building relationships.” I have been working in this field for almost a decade; I returned “home” to Revelstoke just over two years ago. While I have been saddened and often overwhelmed by the situation for people living with disabilities in Canada and around the world, I am proud and impressed by the work that Revelstoke community members are doing to create an innovative and inclusive community, offering choices and supported decision-making for members of our community who may require this support. Further, the families who open their homes for home-share, and those who practice mentoring and community building, are all truly inspiring. As I continue my international studies online, and in my coming years pursuing my PhD in a field where there exists so much inequality, I feel humbled and proud of the place that I consider my home. When I speak and write about innovative practices around the world, being able to refer to my own hometown as a place where community members are passionate about inclusion and community living for persons with disabilities gives me strength and hope for improved situations in other, diverse communities world-wide.

Local involvement ensures Where were you Revelstoke? L ett e rs public interest is served
by Norm Macdonald One of the biggest issues that I am hearing about this week is the need for local involvement in decision making on the land base. There have been a number of decisions made recently by government where local people have felt that they were either not consulted or their expressed views were ignored. But this is not a particularly recent turn of events. Over the last 11 years, many specific legislative steps have been taken to remove previous requirements for local participation in decision making. In 2003, the BC Liberals passed legislation called the Significant Projects Streamlining Act which allows projects to be designated as provincially significant and thus override local jurisdiction which might hamper development. Bill 30, also known as the Ashlu River bill, removed the power of local govern-
ments to make decisions on whether or not private power river-diversion projects should go ahead on public lands. An amendment to the Local Government Act has now allowed the provincial government to create a Mountain Resort Municipality where there are no residents and appoint a mayor and council that may never face election. Community land use planning groups which have developed Integrated Resource Plans have been disbanded and the need for community consultation on land use has been eliminated. These are only a few examples of the ways that this government has taken you out of the decision-making process. And we’ve seen that the quality of decisions being made has been lessened as local wisdom has been ignored. I believe that we need to build resiliency in rural communities and that means that local residents must have a say on how our land base is used. I believe that those who rely on the land base for employment, recreation and the protection of environmental values will make the best decisions. And that local involvement ensures that the public interest is always at the forefront of policy decisions, something that has been lacking for too long in British Columbia. *** Norm Macdonald is the MLA for Columbia River–Revelstoke
Editor, On Nov. 20 I dragged my sorry butt, reluctantly, to yet another public meeting. This process I know is very important. It was the second major public consultation regarding the re-negotiations of the Columbia River Treaty. I must admit I was embarrassed. At the start of the meeting there were about fifteen representatives of various government agencies, Crown corporations and political entities. Unbelievably, I was the only member of the public from our community present. Eventually there were a grand total of three local residents that felt it was worth attending. No media, no environmental or conservation groups, no recreationalists, no business community reps. No federal Parks reps.
Wow! The Columbia River Treaty sets the stage for operations of all the dams and reservoirs along the entire Columbia River in Canada. It influences the allocation of millions of dollars of benefits and compensation annually. When you put your hand out for a grant this piece of paper ultimately determines through what processes and how much your community and region may receive. Influenced by the Treaty are the Columbia Basin Trust, the Columbia Basin Fish and Wildlife Program, grants to communities and numerous other important economic factors. In my realm of interest, ecosystems, it is a critical document that will for
the next several decades determine how operations of dams and reservoirs will affect ecosystems associated with the Columbia River, no small consideration and not confined to fish. It can if properly re-negotiated address some of the long standing and unresolved issues around ecological, social and economic impacts that resulted from hydro and flood control developments in our area. Sometimes we choose to stay home, some times that is more ‘comfortable,’ less stress and frustration, but in the end we live with what we create or allow to be created for us. Can you do better Revelstoke? Francis Maltby, Revelstoke
Local hire to help RMR Editor, I would like the congratulate Northland Properties on the appointment of Mr. Rob Elliott as general manager of Revelstoke Mountain Resort. Above and beyond his
impressive resume, I see no pretention with Rob. Mr. Elliott is an exceptional human beng and Canadian. In my opinion, these two assets will no doubt aid him in running an exceptional facility.
It’s also my belief that this could very well be a positive turning point in public relations. T. Fullerton Revelstoke

Habitat for Humanity, Housing Society team up to help Hunt family Renovation project to make home wheelchair friendly for ALS patient will help provide seed money for future housing projects in Revelstoke Alex Cooper
When Pauline Hunt was diagnosed with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis in 2009, one of the first things she did was head out on a series of trips with her husband Simon and daughters Emily and Madeline. Now, they’re back in Revelstoke, looking at moving forward as the disease progresses. ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is a disease that slowly causes the degeneration of that cause the degeneration of the muscles, eventually leading to paralysis. According to the ALS Association, the life expectancy of an ALS patient is two to five years, 20 per cent live more than five years, 10 per cent more than 10 years, and five per cent live more than 20 years. The physicist Stephen Hawking is the most prominent example of someone living a long, productive life with ALS. So far, Pauline is beating the odds. Four years after getting ALS, she is still able to walk using a walker and has been placed in the ‘slow progression’ category of the disease. “I think part of being in the
slow progression category is due to positive thinking and being surrounded by a lot of support here in Revelstoke and beyond, and making life easier,” she said. At the same time, there is an element of mystery, where the effects of ALS could speed up, or even slow down. “That’s the problem – it’s a disease where you really have no idea what to expect,” she said. ALS will eventually put Pauline in a wheelchair. The Sixth Street home she and her family lives in – with its elevated entrance, narrow hallways, small rooms and poor insulation – will not be suitable for her in the future. They looked at moving, but found that they would likely have to renovate any home they moved into. That’s where Cindy Pearce came on board and decided to push the Hunt’s renovation project to the Kelowna chapter of Habitat for Humanity through its ReNewIt program. The result has been a partnership between the Hunts, Habitat, and the Revelstoke Community Housing Society, who has come on board as a sponsor for the project. The plan, based on input from health professionals, will pro-

vide wheelchair access, cost-effective heating, a large master bedroom, a modified private bathroom that would be able to accommodate future care needs, one or two extra bedrooms for the girls and a livein caregiver, and an open-concept kitchen and space for family activities. To make room for all of this, a second storey will be added to the house. The project will have lasting effects on the community. The Hunts will pay a mortgage on the renovations to Habitat for Humanity and all the money they pay back
will go towards future housing projects in Revelstoke. “Having H for H on board allows us to create a legacy for the community,” Pauline said. “It was a way for us to have this done but also a way for us to give back to the community.” Cindy Pearce is leading the efforts to gather support for the project. So far, the Royal Bank Foundation has contributed $10,000 towards the project and a fundraising team has been put together consisting of friends, family and other local residents.
“That’s the beautiful thing about Revelstoke,” said Hunt. “It is a community that really cares and is very giving. Everywhere I turn someone is offering to help us with the kids, help us with the meals, pick up the kids – do things like that all the time. It’s really amazing to be surrounded by this kind of support and care. “People that I know that have this disease in other places, it’s a lot more grim. They don’t have that great network.” Work on the renovations is expected to take place throughout the summer of 2013 and the hope is to finish by next winter. “We’re happy to bring the Habitat program to Revelstoke for this worthy project,” said Lona Manning, executive director of Habitat for Humanity Kelowna. “Habitat is all about people coming together to give a family a hand up, not a hand out – and we believe Revelstoke has the heart to help the Hunt family in their time of need.” To learn more and/or take part in the project, an information session will be held at the Powder Springs Hotel on Tuesday, Dec. 4, at 7:30 p.m.

Community Foundation seeks donations Times Review staff
The Revelstoke Community Foundation is seeking your help to reach their goal of $1.5 million in total funds by the end of the year. Foundation Chair Daryyl Willoughby said the organization has raised $45,000 so far this year, but hopes a late surge before the tax year
ends will put them at about $80,000. The foundation has given out about $350,000 in grants since they were formed in 1999 as the community’s official centennial legacy project. “The best thing about the foundation is it’s a permanent fund,” explained Willoughby. “It’s basically a gift that keeps on giving.”
The Foundation maintains its base investment and gives out a small percentage, allowing it to grow the fund each year. They gave out grants totalling over $50,000 in 2011. Their long-term goal is to build the fund to $2.5–$3 million by 2020. They have a significant scholarship fund and donate to many types
of charitable causes in Revelstoke. Willoughby said the organization has built the fund over the years and are now in a stable pattern: “It’s like anything,” he said. “It takes a while to start up. Once you get some momentum, you get some good years. ... We’re in a very stable pattern right now.” They can issue tax receipts for
donations. The Foundation is looking to build donations through estates and wills. They have several targeted funds that allow donors to choose what types of activities or organzations benefit from the donation. See revelstokecf.com or call 250837-5345 for more information.

Opening day at RMR – is it worth the hype? Probably Alex Cooper
Growing up as a skier in Montreal, I can never recall getting excited for opening day at my home hill of Owl’s Head. That’s because opening day meant skiing one run was open and it was always icy and mostly artificial snow. The real exciting day was when they finally got every trail open – that meant you could go flying down everything, rocks be damned. This Saturday marks opening day number six at Revelstoke Mountain Resort (and number four for me) and, if anything, it’s becoming even more of an event. Starting two years ago, people started camping out overnight, which I guess means people are officially obsessed. In line, there’s seven months of pent up excitement, even for those who have been out touring already. Do I still remember how to ski? Will my ‘secret’ stash be tracked out yet? How’s the snow? The answers: Yes, probably, and good – very good. The skiing is always good to start the year. It’s been snowing for weeks and its barely been skied. It’s a giant canvas for people to paint their turns on.

beginning of a new era at RMR, sort of. The first phase of development is largely complete. All three phases of the Sutton Place Hotel are finished and the on-mountain development has plateaued, for now. There’s also new management – Rob Elliott has replaced Rod Kessler as the head of operations and Mike Verwey is in charge of mountain operations. Steve Bailey is still

heading up skier services and Dan Sculnick is running the Revelstoke Outdoor Centre. Steve Whale and Don Robertson are managing the ski patrol, while Troy Leahey and Chad Hemphill are the lead avalanche forecasters. Elliott took over as the resort’s general manager only a few weeks ago, and he said so far he’s been working out of the office, getting to know all the staff and helping them get ready for opening day. Despite his new job, or perhaps because of it, he hasn’t been out skiing yet. “It’s killing me. I was talking to some of the patrollers in the last few days and they mentioned face shots,” he said. “I’m excited about this year, I’m trying to get up there as quick as I can. Especially this year because I haven’t had a chance to go skiing yet.” Now that the initial development is done, “The key is to take what we have and make it better, make it more personal,” Elliott said. “My impression is we make it a fun place and realize the potential that’s already here.” A lot of what happened this summer is comparatively minor compared to the first five seasons. The Sutton Place Hotel complex, which
was finished in February, will be open for the full season for the first time. Wino’s and La Baguette will be open at the base and the new beginner area and tube park will open once there’s enough snow down low. On the mountain, most of the work done will be beneath the snow surface. Many of the runs on the front side of the mountain have been trimmed, taking the brush down to a few centimeters high, meaning less snow will be needed to open those runs and groom them. Over at the Ripper Chair, the glades have been thinned out and cleaned up. The entrance to Sweet Spot in North Bowl has been fixed up to make it less hazardous. A new bomb tram has been strung up over Powder Assault to assist ski patrol in doing avalanche control work there and hopefully speed up the opening of some areas. For beginners, a new terrain progression system has been established. Level 1 will take place on the beginner area, Levels 2 and 3 will be from the gondola mid-station down, and Level 4 will take people up to the upper mountain.

Revelstoke Ski Club enjoys racer success, coaching stability Aaron Orlando
Revelstoke Ski Club president Richard Smith is happy to report team skier Dominic Unterberger will split time with the Revelstoke Ski Club and the B.C. Ski Team this season – the first local representative on the provincial team in about 15 years. It’s part of a steady competitive progression experiences over the past few seasons. “We’ve had some really good momentum there,” Smith said. “He’s inspiring for everybody.” He added the FIS racers Cole Smith, Jamie Park and Emily Unterberger are getting top 10 results in races. Smith previewed the season ahead. The team had a record of about 100 athletes last year and are hoping to top that. Mitch Smith and Max Scharf are heading to the Rising Stars camp in the Okanagan.

young talent. “The thing that’s really helped us is the ski hill has been really helpful with the club, and generous – such as giving us the venue for having the [Snowflake Wine Festival] (see page 27),”
Smith said. “They’ve helped us grow a lot by contributing to the club financially and on the hill.” He’s looking forward to building the partnership this year. “[New RMR general manager] Rob Elliot’s been
a long-time Revelstoke person that understands ski racing,” Smith said. “We’re looking forward to working with him.” Ned Lazarevic has returned as Head Coach and Milan Arsovski is the FIS coach. Other coaching staff are Donald Hall, U14 coach; Christina Lustenberger, guest coach; Rich McCrae-Lauba, U12 coach; Carter Berton, Nancy Greene program; Todd Lenzi, professional development, NG program; Matt Kieller, All Mountain Program; Adrian Bernava, Greg Ahearn, Andrea Lustenberger, Dean Prunkle, Darrell Musseau, Caitlin Fullerton, all Nancy Green coaches. Smith said the world-class ski hill attracts great coaching staff. He said the U-10 and Nancy Greene are “cheaper than daycare.” “We used to have a lot of coach changes every year,” Smith said. “Now they come and they want to stay and keep coming back.”
Recently-retired young skiers Eric Schwenck, Richie Smith and Adrian Bernava will be returning to do some coaching at Christmas. The club has also drawn lots of racers and members from the Shuswap area – Smith is from Salmon Arm himself. The club has made some equipment improvements on the hill. They’ve bought a new Brower timing unit that improves their ability to time practice races. Club member Lou Bernava built four small storage sheds on the mountain allowing the club to leave equipment like gates on mountain, meaning they don’t need to be hauled around every day. The club is hosting two races at RMR this year. On Jan. 20 they will host a Nancy Greene race. On April 13–14 the club will host the Okanagan zone finals for racers aged 18 and

Down-zoning application signals big wait to tee time Golf course, from page 1 Mountain Resort development zone and down-zones it so only one residence would be allowed on the large lot. Since golf course development is funded by sales of resort property ringing the course, it means a golf course would not likely happen for many years if the change is approved. The new zoning would allow a golf course, but only one residence. The property sits roughly in the middle of the proposed course, isolating another approximately 50-acre resort parcel that is connected to Shiell Road and Nichol Road to the southwest. Revelstoke real estate agent Carl Rankin is the agent for client Jack McKinnon, who owns the property. Rankin told the APC that the rezoning application was designed to save on taxes. He said the owner had a deal to sell the property to the resort and had received a deposit, but the deal had fallen through. In September, 2010, the Times Review reported a $7.7 million deal to buy properties from two holding companies controlled by McKinnon had fallen apart. The

WINTER PERMIT SYSTEM NOW IN EFFECT PARC NATIONAL DES GLACIERS LE SYSTÈME DE DÉLIVRANCE DE PERMIS D’ACCÈS GLACIER NATIONAL PARK HIVERNAL EST MAINTENANT EN VIGUEUR BoMom banner . parcscanada.gc.ca
The 2012/13 Winter Permitparkscanada. System is now in effect in Glacier gc.ca National Park. Access to all slopes in the park that face the TransCanada Highway and Canadian Pacific Rail is either prohibited or restricted to the public. The Winter Permit System allows backcountry users to enter Winter Restricted Areas that are part of the highway avalanche program when artillery gunfire is not anticipated in those areas. This system protects the public from avalanche control actions in the transportation corridor, but it does not render slopes safe for winter recreationists.
Le système de délivrance de permis d’accès hivernal est maintenant en vigueur dans le parc national des Glaciers pour la saison 20122013. L’accès du public à toutes les pentes du parc qui bordent la Transcanadienne et la voie ferrée du Canadien Pacifique est interdit ou restreint. Ce système permet aux randonneurs de l’arrièrepays de pénétrer dans les zones d’accès hivernal restreint visées par le programme de déclenchement préventif d’avalanches lorsque des tirs d’artillerie n’y sont pas prévus. Ce système protège le public contre les déclenchements préventifs dans le couloir routier, mais il n’assure pas la sécurité des pentes pour les amateurs de loisirs d’hiver.

Rankin said McKinnon was now “left holding the bag” with no ability to move forward on a property designated for a golf course inside a comprehensive development zone. “He has no intention of hurting the future progress of the resort. They’ve been big proponents of it for 25 years. But he also doesn’t want to be in a position where he’s got this piece of vacant land that he owns and he’s paying commercial taxes,” Rankin said. “He’s not doing anything on it that’s commercial or has the intention of doing anything that’s commercial.” Rankin said McKinnon had no plans to develop the property; he wants to avoid paying commercial taxes. He said a future buyer interested in developing a golf course could apply to rezone it back. At the Nov. 22 meeting, city APC members eventually agreed with a planning department recommendation to send the application to a public hearing, which has not yet been scheduled. Two stakeholders have already provided comment on the deal. The provincial Resort Development Branch said they wouldn’t support rezoning that would preclude a golf course. Northland Properties Ltd. asked for several conditions, including a damage covenant and a request to recover development costs on the land paid for by Revelstoke Mountain Resort. Planning director John Guenther expressed concern that the change could lead to a “Balkanization” of the properties that were formerly to be included in the golf course. “This is a pretty significant change to a piece of land that’s integral to the golf course,” Guenther told the commission. “It’s really difficult to develop and 18-hole golf course with this piece of land missing. … You’re losing 100 acres from the golf course.” He also cautioned that from a planning perspective, a change to permit lowering taxes is not a valid reason. APC members also alluded to other outcomes; the rezoning application could face a legal challenge from Northland Properties. Another idea raised was the concept that Northland Properties would now seek to buy the property to avoid the negative perception it would cast on the future of the golf course plan.
Ski club growing steadily from previous page under. There are a few programs designed for those interested in getting young racers into the program. They’re hosting a $99 three-day camp at Christmas for any 12 and under non-club members interested in trying it out. Smith said it’s not as expensive as you think. “The best used, cheapest equipment is used race equipment,” he said. “It usually sells for about 10 cents on the dollar after it’s a year old. You can do it at an inexpensive rate for a long time.” Smith sees a steady progression towards a more competitive club. In five to 10 years he’s hopeful that two or three racers will make the Canadian team. The other goal is to foster an organization that’s a club in the true sense of the word. “We’d really like to have a sense of club membership as a ski club, not just because your kids race there,” he said. “We’re starting to get that and it’s working out real well.” The 2012–13 executive are: Richard Smith, club president; Rob Sidjak, vice-president; Julia Jackson, treasurer; Karyn Molder, secretary; Erich Unterberger, alpine director; Mary Clayton, sponsorship, awards and media; Sally Carmichael & Darrel Musseua; Ted Allain, equipment director; Cam Molder, U14–U18 program director; Margaret Scharf, race treasurer; Christl Unterberger & Caroline Grenier, volunteer coordinators; Sonia Cinelli, fundraising coordinator; Todd Lenzi, van coordinator; Ted Allain, webmaster; Stephane Beck, technical support.

hy Shift? Everyone gets that the more money we keep in our local economy the better off we all are. Ten per cent of your spending sounds simple, because it is. That is why the Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce is embracing the concept. The Shift doesn’t ask you to spend more – it just says if you change how you spend, you can make a real difference in your community. Spending within the community, buying locally-made products, and supporting local services all count towards the shift. The product or service has to be of benefit to you and your family as well. If it works for you, it works for the community. Here is an example of $100 in spending. Spent at a non-locally owned business, $57 goes to corpo-
rate head offices around the world. Spent locally, $68 stays in the community, a 25 per cent increase. If each person shifts $100 it starts to bounce around the community. That’s beyond recycle – it’s reuse! The gift giving season has arrived, so now is a great time to explore our local shops for that special present. If you are looking to check off your ‘nice’ list, check out the No Host Bazaar on Sunday, Dec. 2, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the community centre. The Revelstoke Museum and Archives is a great stop for historical photographs and B.C. products including Murchie’s Tea and Rogers Chocolate. Get your copy of First Tracks, the official Ski History of Revelstoke at a special price of $40 including tax until Dec. 1, or $45 afterwards. Need something ‘naughty?’ Check out Spice ‘O’ Life Emporium, in business in Revelstoke for more than 18 years. Grizzly Book & Serendipity Shop will help you select the perfect read for the bookworm on your list. If you are lucky you can say hello to Shakespeare, who is often seen lounging around the shop.

The CP Rail Holiday Train attracted a large crowd last year. It returns to Reveltsoke on Friday, Dec. 14. Alex Cooper/Revelstoke Times Review
Doc Walker, Miss Emily headline CP Rail Holiday Train stop in Revelstoke Annual visit serves as big fundraiser for the food bank Times Review staff
The 2012 CP Holiday Train program has a musical line-up that is sure to entertain people of all ages, with Doc Walker and Miss Emily performing on the Canadian Train when it rolls into Revelstoke on Friday, Dec. 14, to raise food and money for the food bank and and awareness hunger issues. JUNO Award winning country trio Doc Walker, from Portage La Prairie, Man., will be on board the train when it hits Revelstoke. In 2011 the band released a Holiday EP titled December Remember and some of the classics while touring on the train.
Also onboard will be Kingston, Ont., native, Miss Emily. The “Adele-esque” artist has performed at the Ottawa Bluesfest and has shared the stage with The Tragically Hip, Sam Roberts Band, and the Trews. The 14 brightly decorated cars are covered in hundreds of thousands of LED lights. Artists perform on a modified boxcar that has been turned into a travelling stage. The Holiday Train will be at the CP Rail parking lot on Victoria Road on Friday, Dec. 14, at 5:30 p.m. The show starts at 6 p.m. People are asked to bring donations to the food bank. All food and money collected will
stay in the community. Since 1999, the CP Holiday Train has become an important fundraiser for many food banks. In 14 years, the Holiday Train program has raised close to $6.4 million and about 2.6 million pounds of food for North American food banks. Everything that is raised in a community stays in that community for local distribution. For additional information on the musicians, photos, 2012 schedules, a route map and downloadable pictures of the two trains visit: www.cpr.ca. Supporters can also join the Holiday Train on Facebook and follow on Twitter @CPHolidaytrain.

Freestyle skiers on Mount Mackenzie, circa 1978. Mike Pirnke/Revelstoke Museum & Archives
Early freestyle skiing in Revelstoke Local youth took risks imitating the tricks of their heroes This is the sixth of an eightpart series of excerpts from First Tracks: A History of Skiing in Revelstoke, the latest book from the Revelstoke Museum & Archives. By Revelstoke Museum & Archives
Around 1972, a group of boys in their early teens and younger began trying out a new sport called freestyle skiing. This group included Keith Bramhill, Robert and Bruce Granstrom, Mike Helyer, Rob Flick and Lee Humphries. They had watched Canadian freestyle pioneer Wayne Wong on TV and they wanted to try out his tricks. “We idolized Wayne Wong,” remembered Bramhill, who was in grade eight when the boys started. “We just started doing the tricks that we saw the skiers do on television. Some of the things we were watching were the first front flips and back flips and 360s.” The boys had no coach so they invented their own methods, Bramhill said.
“We found that doing a front flip on long skis was difficult. So we would take a hacksaw and cut off our skis so they were about two feet long. And have them really short and then we’d do a flip with the really short skis on and then we’d graduate to bigger skis.” A lack of coaching contributed to accidents, Bramhill recalled: My friend Rob Flick was attempting to do a big trick. The ski patroller (Clyde Newsome) was standing there watching and he said (into the radio), ‘I may need a toboggan. I’ve got somebody down here about to attempt a double back flip. You want to have a ski patroller on hand.’ Sure enough my friend goes off the jump, attempts a double back flip and Clyde Newsome is calling ‘He’s got one flip in. Ah, now he’s coming around for the second. No, he’s not going to… Yup, he’s down. Ah, ah, he’s down. Yup, bring the toboggan. We’ll need the toboggan.’ Sure enough, they put Rob on a toboggan and they haul him off because there was
a suspected spinal injury and Rob ended up in the hospital for a day or two. Freestyle skiing at the time had three disciplines: ballet; moguls and aerials. Mas Matsushita first took up ballet and moguls in Vernon – the centre of freestyle skiing at the time – before he moved to Revelstoke in 1977. Ski ballet used many of the moves of figure skating and gymnastics, he recalled. Programs were choreographed to music. Skiers had short skis and did flips, spins, walkovers, and walkovers with poles which got them even higher. Skiers used the lower part of the T-bar hill, which had a slight incline, and they were judged on speed, choreography and tricks. First Tracks, the History of Skiing in Revelstoke, is due out in early December. Pre-orders can be made at the Revelstoke Museum & Archives or by calling 250-837-3067. The book is $40 inc. HST if ordered before Dec. 1, and $45 inc. HST afterwards.

Revelstoke in 1912 – part two 100 years ago Revelstoke was in the midst of a boom. Here are some highlights of that year, courtesy Cathy English at the Revelstoke Museum Alex Cooper
• 1912 was one of the most important years in Revelstoke’s history. It was a year of substantial growth in town. The cornerstones for both Queen Victoria Hospital and the courthouse were laid; work started on the Mount Revelstoke auto road, and many downtown buildings were built during this time, including the McKinnon Building on First Street West (where the Nickelodeon is) and Manning’s, which was originally a candy factory before being turned into a restaurant. It was such a busy year, that when Cathy English gave her talk Revelstoke in 1912 back in January, she only got halfway through the year. Last Wednesday, she gave part two of her talk, which covered from June through the end of the year. Here are some highlights: • The laying of the cornerstone for Queen Victoria Hospital and the unveiling of the mile-zero post for the Mount Revelstoke auto road were both laid at ceremonies on August 21. A number of officials turned out for both events, and the long day meant some were seen dozing off as the day went on. • Speaking of the hospital, it seemed to be a well-run institution. According to the report for the year ending July 31, 1912, the hospital treated 473 patients who spent a total of 8,162 days in the hospital. 28 major operations were performed and 27 maternity cases were seen. Out of all that, “not a single complaint in regard to our hospital service has been received during the year,” reported Thomas
Kilpatrick, the chair of the hospital board. There was a big push on to sell lots in Malakwa. In August, lots were advertised at the price of $75 to $175. They also pushed business opportunities, such as hotels, shoe makers, dry goods, furniture stores and more. “This new town is just about half way between Revelstoke and Salmon Arm, being a trifle over 30 miles from either place. It is a natural location for a town, being surrounded by a highly rich farming district. Lots in this townsite can be purchased on long terms so that a purchaser before he has been paid for his lots will have made a good profit on his investment.” Roy Smythe was also on the Malakwa bandwagon. He had a window display at his store featuring fruits and vegetables grown there. The centre piece was an 81-pound pumpkin. He had a contest to see who could guess the number of seeds in the pumpkin. The prize? You guessed it – a free lot in Malakwa. Horace Manning started to build his candy factory on Mackenzie Avenue. The building was constructed by Foote & Pradolini, who also built the courthouse. “When completed and equipped, this will be the most modern and best candy factory between Calgary and Vancouver,” touted the newspaper. There was a huge outcry over the officiating when the Revelstoke CPR baseball team travelled to Kamloops for the game. “One of the rawest deals ever handed out to any sporting aggregation was given to the Revelstoke CPR ball team
at Kamloops on Wednesday last,” wrote the paper. There was complaints about foul balls being declared fair, runners being deemed safe when they were out and then, in the 11th inning, a Revelstoke home run was deemed foul. • The Revelstoke Progress Club was making a big push to promote Mount Revelstoke as a tourist destination. In addition to lobbying the Federal Government to turn the mountain into a national park, they also took some CP Rail officials to the summit with the hopes of convincing them of building a hotel there. • On a sad note, there were two fatalities on the rail line. On July 21, Charles Ambro Davis, 30, a Presbyterian student and missionary, died when he was thrown from a train near Taft. He was sitting on the front end of the train when the train jerked while going up a steep grade, sending Davis beneath it. • On Sept 7, Joe McInnis, 24, a brakeman on a work train had both his legs cut off when he fell beneath a moving train near Beavermouth. He was rushed to hospital in Golden, where he died three hours later. • On Sept. 11, a man who the newspaper simply identified as ‘Hindoo’ but is believed to be named Rajat Singh, succumbed to injuries he received while working at the mill in Taft a few weeks prior. 200 people came out to his cremation. Cathy English’s next Brown Bag History Talk is on Wednesday, Dec. 5, at 12 p.m. The topic is First Tracks: The History of Skiing in Revelstoke

events feature skiing and snowboarding events. What’s being worked on? Elliott said there were still water and drainage issues with the snowmaking system on the lower mountain that need to be dealt with. There also haven’t been any new cabins added to the gondola this year, despite speculation that might be done to help alleviate morning crowds on a powder day.
from page 11
Tumbelina, a lower mountain run, has been re-graded to make it beginner friendly. The number of ski instructors has also nearly doubled, said Elliott. All that said, the most welcome change – especially for the ladies –
just might be new bathrooms at the bottom of the Ripper Chair. Revelstoke’s reputation as a big mountain will be cemented when it hosts two major freeride events this winter. In January the mountain hosts the the Freeride World Tour, which will once again take place on the Mac Daddy face on the backside of Mount Mackenzie.

According to Doug Lunqvist, a meteorologist with Environment Canada, the forecasts models are indicating there’s a 60 per cent chance this winter will be warmer than normal. He wouldn’t make any predictions for precipitation, but warmer weather means that freezing levels will be higher, so what does fall is more likely to come as rain in the valley.

Inconsistency plagues Grizzlies again in split weekend ALEX COOPER
The Revelstoke Grizzlies had more mixed results in KIJHL action last weekend – defeating division rivals the Kamloops Storm 3-2 on Friday before falling to the Princeton Posse 5-3 on Saturday. The result on Saturday clearly had coach Kevin Kraus frustrated. “It’s disappointing,” he said following the loss. “You work off a good game against Kamloops on Friday and you come in here and play good the first 15 minutes and you start getting in penalty trouble and it goes south from there. We have to play more consistent, stay out of the box and play better 5-on-5.” On Friday, the Grizzlies dumped the Storm thanks to two goals from Spencer Samuel and and a 38 save performance by Aaron Brandoli in nets. Samuel, who now leads the KIJHL in goals, scored power play goals at 8:29 of the first and 8:43 of the second to give Revelstoke a 2-0 lead. Stefan Wood got Kamloops within one early in the third but
a Spenser Baldock’s first of the season less than two minutes later put Revelstoke up for good. On Saturday, the Grizzlies started out strong, with goals by Tyler Reay and Andrew Standish giving them a 2-0 lead less than half way through the period. After that, Princeton took over, partly with penalty, and also due to a string of costly penalties that saw the Grizzlies spend much of the second half of the first period short handed. By the time it was over, Brett Perrine and Eric Kubis had tied it up. In the second period, Kaleb Boyle scored twice for the Posse to make it 4-2. Devan Suidy made it 5-2 less than two minutes into the third period with the Posse’s third power play goal of the night. Brayden Beckley made it respectable with a power play goal in the third, but it wasn’t enough to spark a comeback. After the game Kraus had some harsh words for some players for their lack of effort and lack of discipline though he didn’t name anyone. “You saw some true guys colours come out tonight, especially in our dressing room and
on the bench,” he said. “You saw who really cares and who’s on their own page. We’ll see what happens.” Kraus said he though the emotions might have been running “a little bit high” after Friday’s big win but it’s important to keep them in check. “Not getting too high after a win, not getting too low after a loss. You have to keep an even keel throughout the whole season.” This weekend marks the halfway point of the season for the Grizzlies. The team travels to Kamloops to take on the Storm on Saturday before hosting the Beaver Valley Night Hawks at home on Sunday afternoon. December 1 also marks a key deadline, when coaches must submit their final list of carded players to BC Hockey. “A few guys are going to have show me they work hard this week or else they’ll find themselves somewhere else or not playing hockey,” Kraus said. “This week is going to be a big week for us. We have to work towards being better, being more consistent and getting our work ethic up a bit.”

Habitat for Humanity in revelstoke tuesday, December 4th at 7:30 pm Powder springs theatre room
Affordable housing is a major challenge in Revelstoke. Habitat for Humanity Kelowna will partner with the Revelstoke Community Housing Society in a pilot project to bring their international affordable housing programs to Revelstoke.
In this pilot project the Kelowna affiliate of Habitat for Humanity will help with a renovation of Pauline and Simon Hunt’s home to create an accessible, supportive space for their family, which includes two young daughters, as they all learn to live with Pauline’s diagnosis of ALS/Lou Gehrig’s disease, which will eventually require wheelchair accessibility and other supports. Come and learn how Habitat for Humanity can help us make Revelstoke an even better place to live and how you could contribute to this pilot project.

Our Mom, Motherin-Law, Gram and Great Gram moved to Revelstoke, from her hometown of Edmonton, in 1946 as a young war bride. Getting off the CPR train that snowy day in February was the beginning of a new chapter in her life and we are grateful for her courage as Revelstoke has been a beautiful hometown. +er early days were Àlled raising two daughters while connecting with the community. Employment opportunities came at the Revelstoke Credit Bureau, Niagara and Avco Finance and the Revelstoke Credit Union where she enjoyed many years until retirement. Thank you Mort Rafuse for opening the door for her. Her heart expanded big time with the arrival of her two grandchildren and gave her the chance to babysit, bake endlessly and introduce them to her world of sports in general and hockey in particular and being Irish. Coming from a hockey family where her older brother Jim, in 1950 coached the Edmonton Waterloo Mercurys to the World Hockey Championship in London, England, there was no question hockey was to inÁuence her grandchildren·s lives. In 2011 twin great grandchildren added to her family legacy and she would have loved spending more time with them. A warm thank you to Dr. Farrugia for your genuine care and concern – she really looked forward to your appointments. Thank you also to Dr. Mostert and the staff of Mount Cartier Court for honoring her dignity and appreciating her Irish sense of humor. Mom/Gram was predeceased by many family members in Edmonton and her beloved granddogs Brandee and Ali. Missing her enveloping hugs are daughters Joan (Ken) Pattison, Revelstoke; Jeanne Uwynn, Kelowna; grandchildren Trish Pattison, Vancouver; and Brad (Joelle) and great grandchildren Connor and Sienna Pattison, Port Coquitlam. No service will be held at her request. In lieu of Áowers we invite you to think of Mom when you look at Mt Begbie as this majestic view gave her pleasure from her kitchen window for more than sixty-Àve years.

February 10, 1934 â€“ November 18, 2012 Gus Stankoven passed away peacefully at Kamloops Hospice on Sunday, Nov. 18th, 2012 at the age of 78 years surrounded by the love of his family. Gus was born on February 10th, 1934 in Drumheller, Alta. and was raised there until graduation in 1952. He came to Revelstoke in September 1952 to work for C.P. Rail as a telegraph operator. He worked the spare board on the Mountain and Shuswap subs until getting a steady job as a telegrapher in 1954. He married Winnifried Goebel on June 2nd, 1956 and worked in Albert Canyon until 1959, after which they moved to Rosebery where he was the station agent. While living there, Gus belonged to the New Denver â€“ Silverton Kinsmen Club, coached Little League Baseball and Minor Hockey. He also played on the New Denver â€“ Silverton Combines Senior Baseball team and Senior Hockey teams. He loved fishing on Slocan Lake and Wilson Creek. After 10 years, the CPR decided to close the branch line between Rosebery and Nakusp due to a lack of business. He turned down a promotion to be a mobile supervisor in Cranbrook because they had already purchased a home in Enderby, where he bid and got the Armstrong-Enderby office swing position. They moved to Enderby in 1969 and Gus was on city council for 14 years as an alderman, head of the Recreation Commission and put on many events for the Senior Citizens. He also coached Minor Hockey and Little League baseball where his team represented the Okanagan Valley at the Provincial Championship in Whalley. He was also involved with the Grindrod Elks Senior Hockey team and Enderby Legionnaires Senior Ball club and proudly went to the Western Canadian finals. In 1985 while working the Armstrong, Vernon and Sicamous swing, the CPR decided to close the branch line where he managed to get the office swing job in Kamloops. They resided in Kamloops until 1991 when Gus retired after 39 years of service with CP Rail when they closed the station due to technical changes on the railway. While an operator in Kamloops, he also was the First Aid instructor, as well as Defensive Driving Instructor for CP Employees. In 1992, they moved to a beautiful home in Nakusp on the Arrow Lakes. While there, Gus was president of the Senior Citizens Association for 7 Â˝ years, was a Senior Counsellor and also gave driving lessons to approximately 120 students and seniors. He was also President of the Nakusp Falcons Senior Hockey team and was also the score/time keeper for Minor Hockey. Gus & Winnie were chosen as Citizens of the Year in 1998. While living in Nakusp, Gus enjoyed fishing and picking berries. In 2003, they moved back to Kamloops to be closer to family and medical attention. Gus won medals at the Senior Games in table tennis, which he enjoyed playing for many years after. His hobbies included riding his scooter, watching hockey, playing crib, scrabble & circle word games. He loved watching movies and spending time with the family, especially his grandchildren. Gus spent time collecting donations for the Salvation Army as a kettle ringer in the malls at Christmas and loved interacting with people. Dad was an unselfish person who loved unconditionally, a friend to everyone, and always willing to help those in need. He devoted his life to being a great husband, father and grandfather and will be greatly missed. Special thanks to all of his doctors and nurses along with the volunteers at Hospice for your kindness and compassion. Gus was predeceased by his parents, step-father and sister, wife Winnie in August 2009 and granddaughter Michelle in February 2012. He is survived by his five children and families: Bill (Lorna) Stankoven of Victoria; Brenda (Dave) Jones of Revelstoke; Larry (Franca) Stankoven of Enderby; Linda (Fred) Iadarola of Kamloops; Wes (Deana) Stankoven of Kamloops; Fifteen grandchildren: Christina (Benjamin) Hernandez, Devin, Brennan & Garrett Stankoven; Amanda & Jeff Jones; Amy (Trevor) Volpatti; Amber (Adam) Brausse; Steven & Samuel Stankoven; Eric, Jenna & Melissa Iadarola; Logan & Macie Stankoven. Funeral services will be held at the Sacred Heart Cathedral (255 Nicola) in Kamloops on Sat. Dec. 1st, at 12:00 followed by a Celebration of Life at the Colombo Lodge (814 Lorne) In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Kamloops Hospice or the Salvation Army in memory of Gus.

The Revelstoke Snowmobile Club hosted the premiere of Thunderstruck 11 at the River City Pub on Nov. 24. The event was a fundraiser for the club, the Canadian Avalanche Centre and the Revelstoke Food Bank. The totals weren’t available by press time, but so far it’s over $8,000 and counting. Check next week’s issue of the Times Review for a snow season preview on the club’s activities. Pictured above from left: Backcountry Access representative Tyler Paynton donated a high-end airbag for the benefit; Sylvan Lake, Alberta resident Eric Wickberg had the top bid of $1,200; Yamaha district sales manager and Team Thunderstruck rider Randy Swenson emceed the raffle and auction and brought lots of great gear.
