need to do a study on the dangers of the road. “We need to find out how much traffic and what kind of speeds they are going right off the bat,” Savard said. He suggested forming a committee, composed of a few councillors and a couple Thompson residents. Mayor Greg Granstrom noted that the RCMP had conducted a speedboard study on

Thompson and were in the process of tabulating results. Granstrom said it would make sense to wait to get the information before doing anything. “Perhaps what we should do is ask for a staff report for next meeting,” Granstrom said. “Certainly the statistics that we get from that speedboard would show what in fact is happening... we hear all kinds of things, like who’s going to be

killed next... but without data, it’s pretty hard to do it.” The mayor said the city should first build a case, since the RCMP would feel more compelled to come if there is a statistical reason. Laura Pettitt also lives on Thompson, and said that along with speed, they should look at how people in the area are parking on Thompson. “I’m well aware they need

to park there, but it seems extremely sloppy,” Pettitt said. “Maybe there are certain areas that could be plowed a little wider just to make it a little bit safer.” She also noted that while it is a main thoroughfare, especially in the summer, she’s never seen so many logging trucks come down that road, which causes the road to deteriorate as well.

Drysdale being awarded Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal arne Petryshen Rossland News Editor

Longtime Rossland resident Jackie Drysdale will be receiving the Queen’s Jubilee medal tonight, along with Robin Michelle Legere, from Trail. The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee medal is awarded in honour of the Queen’s 60 years as the Monarch, and recognizes prominent volunteers in the community. Drysdale has lived in Rossland for the past 37 years and notably was Rossland’s first female mayor in 1985 and was re-elected two years later. She was also a member of the 2005 Rossland city council. Drysdale has been a part of many organizations, she is the current chair of the Rossland Historical Society and Rossland Golden City Days Society. She said Volunteering is something she really enjoys. “I like to volunteer, for me it’s a win-win situation,” Drysdale said. “I like to work with other people, I like to accomplish things and I like the feeling of satisfaction when some-

thing comes to completion. It usually results in good things in the community.” She said the award is a real honour. “I’m a huge believer in the importance of volunteering and volunteerism in the community, I think that’s the backbone of any community.” Drysdale said that volunteerism works because of the great spirit in Rossland. “We’ve got hundreds of people that volunteer every year, and thousands of volunteer hours every year,” she said. “They build and strengthen our community and without them, we’d be far less well off for the community, in terms of the way it is.” She has also been on the Regional District board, the executive of the UBCM (through council). She has been on the board of B.C. Transit, West Kootenay Power, Columbia Basin Trust, a volunteer at the Thrift Store and a Friend of the Museum. Volunteerism is such a healthy and necessary thing for the community and for the people that get involved,” she said. “I think it’s really important that volunteers in general are recognized.” The presentations will take place at the

Coun. Tim Thatcher confirmed that logging trucks could be seen from his house and that they start moving down the road as early as 4 a.m. He said they are very noisy. Coun. Jill Spearn commented that the traffic on Thompson has been an ongoing issue, just as dogs in downtown has been . “I’ve even brought it up because I live below Thompson Avenue myself, not to say that I drive 40 km/h on Thompson, because that’s totally unrealistic, but 50 is certainly realistic,” Spearn said. “Where people park it’s helter skelter, it’s chaotic.

City will receive report next month on Thompson traffic data seemed to curtail traffic for a while. I know there are operational issues in the winter, but certainly in the summer months it was conducive to reducing traffic speeding.” She said that lead to complaints about the drivers slowing down, then hitting the gas after the bump. But she said the speedbump helped to slow traffic down. The road is an issue because it is a bottleneck and the winding road, she said. “It’s the way the city was built, so I don’t know if there are any easy answers.” Coun. Cary Fisher said he supports a committee formation. He said that his wife once got passed by a truck going 100 km on the road.

“Obviously there is an issue down there that has to get addressed,” he said. Fisher said that the city has copies of a report from years ago when Redstone was put together, which was made up of sitting on the street and counting cars for several days. “The issue is naughty drivers, it’s not the number of vehicles, it isn’t that busy, relatively speaking,” Fisher said. “There are some poor drivers down there that are making some bad decisions and do endanger lives. “I don’t think we need to spend a lot of money, but I do think something has to be done in terms of better bumps, enforcement, just a whole host of other things.... a bit of an education program.”

The spirit of winter in Rossland

This weekend, Rossland really kicks into the winter spirit, with a lot of opportunities to bring that warm holiday spirit to yourself as well. On Saturday the day starts with Rekindle the Spirit of Christmas, a day that began 19 years ago. Events include an outdoor Christmas market, Santa photos and the lighting of the downtown tree. The event is a great reminder of the holiday spirit that resides in Rossland residents. In the evening, St. Andrews Church will be displaying Nativity scenes. Later that night the Snow Dance will provide an opportunity to warm up after the cold with some dancing. Hopefully those dance steps will come together with most everyone else’s steps in Rossland, as a dance to the snow gods, since more snow is always welcome. That’s especially true since Red Resort opens in just over a week - on Dec. 8. Over at Black Jack Ski Club, there is some good snow being reported at the Biathlon course off of Highway 3B. There’s also good conditions further in the wilderness, if you are inclined to explore. It’s that time of year again to get out your snow shoes, skates and toques and celebrate the season, and shake off that early darkness glum. Don’t miss out on this weekend’s celebrations of the coming of winter and the holidays.

We want to hear from you.

Flipping learning around Jennifer ellis Neighbourhood of Learning

As RSS moves into its fourth month of implementing blended learning and serving as a leader in implementing B.C.’s New Education Plan, you may be hearing new terms such as personalized learning, flipped learning, inquiry-based learning and project-based learning. Sometimes it’s hard to know precisely what each of these terms means. One approach to blended learning being implemented at RSS is called the flipped classroom or flipped learning. The notion of the flipped classroom is that students should be using face-to-face class time for valuable interaction with the teacher and other students. Class time should be the time in which students ask questions, work through problems to clarify their understanding and engage in hands-on learning activities, such as science experiments. This happens best when the teacher has the opportunity to spend the majority of the class time fully engaged with the students in informal discussions rather than delivering course material in a lecture format. Anyone who has ever tried to work through physics homework problems from musty old textbooks alone at 9 p.m. after listening to an in-class lecture that they only half understood probably can see the benefits of trying to work through those problems in class with access to the teacher. Flipped learning allows teachers to guide the learning of students individually, organize students who are struggling with similar issues into informal study groups and deliver mini-lectures that come right when the students are working on specific problems and are most receptive to understanding. Students also help each other to learn, and learn by instructing, both of which contribute to the development of a culture of learning. To facilitate flipped learning, teachers make lecture material available to the students in different formats that they can access on their own time, at home, on the bus on the way to a sporting event, when they are sick, or at school when they are work-

ing on something. This clears important and limited classroom time for direct interactions and addressing challenges in the students’ learning. The format of the lecture has the added benefit of allowing students to work at their own pace. Students who can get through the material quickly can forge ahead, while those who need to go more slowly, stop and think about things and listen to something twice, can do so. When you hear about flipped learning, the focus is generally on the use of videos for direct instruction. However this is not and should not be considered what flipped learning is about. The videos are great instructional tools and are an important element of flipped learning, but their main function is to serve as the means of freeing up classroom time for more important discussions and project-based learning, rather than the passive consumption of information that can be done at any time. Moreover, few classrooms are totally flipped. Many teachers that use the flipped classroom model, also offer some seminars to offer students a variety of means of accessing the information. A key element of flipped learning is that it helps to personalize the learning environment for each learner. Some students learn best by listening to live lectures. Some learn best by watching lectures online. Some learn best by working through the material kinesthetically, while others learn best by simply reading. Some students absorb information best first thing in the morning, while others are most receptive to new information in the afternoon or evening. The key to flipped learning is that if offers more choice during classroom time to meet the needs of each learner and that contributes to better learning. For a great video on flipped learning check out: http://www.upworthy.com/i-have-seen-the-futureof-education-it-looks-a-lot-like-this?c=ufb1 Please note that the date for the NOL Information Session regarding the upcoming school configuration decision-making process has been changed from Dec. 11, to Dec. 18 at 7 p.m. at RSS to accommodate the grade 6 and 7 Christmas plays.

1912: City using snow plow Maureen Brown Rossland Museum Society

100 Years Ago November 1912 Watson Hotel turned into an isolation hospital. For the past few days the turning of the Watson Hotel into an isolation hospital has been in progress. ...The hospital is now ready for patients and several are to be admitted without delay. An effort will be made to put all of the future scarlet fever patients in the hospital, to the end that the reigning epidemic may be stamped out. The only way that this can be accomplished is by complete isolation. The disease has spread largely through failure to report cases to the medical health officer. A wonderful exhibition The city will soon have a modern wireless telegraph station in full operation. Contracts have been closed ...to have complete apparatus, transmitting and receiving stations, batteries, etc. brought here and put in working order, and entertainingly demonstrated by an expert. (At the Miner’s Hall).. he will ...send and receive wireless messages in full view of the audience, ring bells at a distance, start motors, manipulate signals and electric lights and give a comprehensive demonstration of the present uses of this much talked of discovery. City is Using a Snow Plow A snow plow is being used ... in clearing the sidewalks of snow in the suburbs of the city. It clears a path five and a half feet wide, and does away with the

narrow tracks made in the snow by pedestrians. One man leads the horse and another guides the plow and good paths for pedestrians are made in this way. By this method paths can be made in all of the outside streets in a day. It will also be utilized on some of the down town streets, but it cannot be used on elevated sidewalks... for fear that the horse may break through the planks and thus be seriously injured. 75 Years Ago November 1937 S.G. Blaylock Guest Speaker at Legion Dinner – Smelter Head Surveys European situation in Armistice Dinner Address “We are gathered here tonight on Armistice Day 19 years after the cessation of hostilities with many divergent emotions but many thoughts in common.” Mayor Gordon Censures Alt Cunningham Mar Gordon raked one of his councilmen, Alderman Cunningham, over the proverbial “coals” ... when he read a severe denunciation of the Finance chairman’s press attacks on the council. The censure was re-echoed around the table as Alderman Cunningham rose to justify his statements. He said that he was not prepared to withdraw anything he had said and added that “nobody here’ll muzzle me.” Mara Suggests City Streets Be Identified Proposal of Alderman Mara to place street identification signs on all the main streets of Rossland was favorably received. ...Alderman Mara felt that it was about time Rossland caught up to the times and gave names to its thoroughfares. “You can’t give a stranger an intelligent answer to his enquiry about finding a certain place, because we haven’t any streets,” he said.

Snow Dance will help Olaus statue get back on its feet Arne Petryshen Rossland News Editor

The Spirit of Red will be having a Snow Dance in Rossland Saturday, Dec. 1. The dance starts at 9 p.m. at the Miners’ Hall in Rossland, and will be featuring the vocals of Karli Harrison backed by No Excuse!. All proceeds are going to the final costs associated with the Olaus Jeldness statue and Spirit of Red member Roly Worsfold hopes they can raise some money for future Spirit of Red events. As it is now, the organization is out of money as a result of repairs needed on the Olaus statue. “When they shipped from China the crate was poorly put together,” Worsfold explained. “The (open) wood crate moved, the skis cracked and the pole broke.” Worsfold said the damage was fairly major, though the statue itself looks awesome. At the moment, they have a bronze specialist in Trail working on it, and it was a chance to put in some improvements. “We’re going to place the skis so they’re tied together it will be a lot more secure,” he said. He said he’s currently trying to do some fundraising, since the society is out of money and need a good turnout at the dance. In the downtown, templates for the base of the pedestal are set. The base will be done in granite and will be ready for the official unveiling at Winter Carnival in January. Worsfold also mentioned that the Norwegian officials will be there as well, bringing Jeldness’ heritage to Rossland. The officials set to come include the cultural minister, a journalist and the mayor of Sundal, Jeldness’ hometown. For more information go to the Spirit of Red web-

There is also a link to check out the CBC interview Worsfold did about Jeldness. Tickets for the dance are $20 per person and are available at the Mountain Town Properties office (2020 Washington Street in the Bank of Montreal building) or from members of the Spirit of Red Social Club Society.

I

am sending a big thank you to the communities for coming together with so much giving and support during this difficult time. Since August 26th I have received so much positive energy and thoughtfulness from everyone. The KBRH showed me nothing but quality care and compassion for the month I was in their care. The ER nurses, ICU nurses, surgical floor nurses, surgeons, anaesthesiologists, doctors, OT staff, PT staff and paramedics made this as comfortable as they could, while being very accommodating to not only my personal needs but to my families as well A special thank you to Brian and Tracee Zelke for organizing a marvellous fundraiser at Teck. The BBQ raised money for my rehabilitation, with many generous donations including all the employees at Teck and many other companies as well and all the people at Chinook Scaffold. The Local 480 steelworkers and the Local 2300 Carpenters both have supported me throughout this time, and I can say I am proud to belong to a union, as they certainly take care of their own. Big thank you to Teck for donating funds for renovations to my house to allow me easier mobility. The carpenters and painters at Teck for making sure everything was done before I came home, working hard to get it done in one night. Thanks fellas! I can’t thank people enough for donating to my rehabilitation fund at the Rossland Credit Union. I have a long journey ahead of me which will include multiple trips to Kelowna for prosthesis fittings and learning to use my new leg. Thank you to Ziggy Rusten for organizing a fundraiser at the Rossland Legion November 17th. The dinner and dance was amazing and the silent auction was a great success. The community really pulled together and gave donations for this event. Thank you to the Rossland Ladies Auxiliary for cooking a great meal and to everyone that attended. It was great to see everyone and feel the great support. I would like to say a huge thank you to my family, Joe and Mary, my brother Arlin, and Kim and Joan, all of you have been so supportive through this whole experience. I especially need to thank my fiancée Krista-Lee for staying by my side since the night of the accident. I love you babe and don’t imagine I would have made it without you. Thank you. Again, thanks to everyone for the caring, compassion and generosity at my time of need. The overwhelming positive support is so greatly appreciated.

Sincerely, Levon Bye

The festive season is now upon us. For those with young children in your family, you may want to check out the newly arrived children’s picture book at Cafe Books West, The Hundred Dollar Special: The Antics of a Rescue Cat. The author, Kathryn Bourdon of Salmo, B.C., and Robson artist, Sandra Donohue, both former elementary school teachers, teamed up to collaborate in the production of this book. Donohue’s watercolours beautifully illustrate the story of a family’s dilemma with mice which have invaded their farmhouse. Kathryn’s son Marc, of Quickdraw Publications, Squamish, B.C. published the book, and Friesens of Winnipeg, printed it. It is an entirely Canadian project. Bourdon wanted to write her first book to be especially for her granddaughter, Elise, who is part of the story. She met Sandra, reviewed her work along with other Kootenay artists, and decided that her style was just what she was looking for. Donohue claims she never seriously considered illustrating a book for it is a lot of work, and a huge responsibility when it is for someone else’s project. However, she liked the story that Bourdon had written, thought it would be a good challenge for her, and had a feeling that she would like working with Kathryn. She was

right on all accounts: “It was lots of work; it was challenging; and Kathryn turned out to be a great partner,” she said. Central to the story is the SPCA rescue cat, Jewel, which the family acquired in the hopes that she would rid the house of mice. However, when she arrived their troubles really began. Eventually she got the idea and performed her job but in a most unusual way. Everything in this story really happened. The pictures will delight children and people
