❚ TRAILS

Paving project proposed from Grand Forks to Lake CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

Work is underway to connect Grand Forks to Christina Lake with development of the Cascade Kettle River Heritage Trail. The goal of the Grand Forks Community Trails Society is to develop trails around the area and hopes to connect the 17.5 kilometres between Grand Forks to Christina Lake with an accessible trail as a part of the continuing Trans Canada Trail. The trail would also cross through the Boothman’s Oxbow Provincial Park and the Gilpin Grasslands Provincial Park. “The Grand Forks Trails Society is creating a vision for the community,” explained Chris Moslin, chair of the Grand Forks Community Trails Society. “It’s really a stretch of land that the community knows really well because there’s a lot of history and a lot of folklore associated with this route.”

Broken into three stages, the first stage starting from 68th Avenue has already begun with the help of Roxul, which has been updating its parking lot and the path behind their property. “It’s all about the process; every process has a timeline, intake and rules,” Moslin said. “With the construction of Roxul’s parking lot and the leveling – (it’s) pretty committed to developing that area. It looks all right now but in 20 years there will be bushes and plants and a really nice entrance and parkway off of 68th.” The first stage, beginning at 68th Avenue will continue up until Nursery Trestle and is estimated to cost around $101, 640. The second stage will continue from Nursery Trestle up through Gilpin Grasslands Provincial Park at the estimated cost of $1,029,900, and the final stage will be from the Gilpin area to Cascade Gorge Trestle at the estimated cost of $416,700.

A gastrointestinal (GI) bug was suspected at the Boundary Hospital in Grand Forks last week. According to Cindy Crane, acute health service administrator for Boundary Hospital, the hospital had to limit visitors and there were a number of suspected cases out in the community as well. “We’ve had some patients with those symptoms here. Four of our 12 patients have had some GI symptoms, which is basically the nausea, vomiting and diarrhea, so that was in the middle of last week,” Crane explained. “We did enhance our housekeeping and started our isolation procedures. The good news is as of (Monday) morning, all of those patients have cleared – basically they’ve had 48 hours of none of the GI symptoms.” Crane said that 10 hospital staff members were also affected and they too were free of symptoms for 48 hours before they returned to work. “It’s definitely in the community,” Crane said. “We have not isolated yet the exact organism. We’re making the assumption that it is a norovirus but until we have test results back from the BC Centre for Disease Control, which may be (Monday) afternoon, that will be our definite confirmation that it is the norovirus.” Samples were collected on Thursday and Friday, Crane said, and because of the weekend may not be processed yet however. Results were not known at press time. While a bulletin wasn’t issued, Crane said warning signs were posted throughout the acute ward of Boundary Hospital, because the bug was in the acute areas. “We didn’t put a halt to admissions or discharges but certainly we had those four patients in isolation and physicians were made aware. We’re doing the things we would normally do for any type of isolation – wearing the gowns and masks and gloves,” explained Crane, add-

ing that she is stressing that people use proper hand hygiene by hand washing. She said the hospital did let visitors know about the patients in isolation and said that the bug may have been around for a few weeks. “This is just by word of mouth and also from our staff. Again, until we isolate it and I don’t know if anyone in the community has had test results back. I don’t have any sense of how many people are out there but obviously, just for the number of staff that were here that experienced symptoms, it really has been going on for the last, probably two or three weeks in the community as close as we can tell,” Crane estimated. “It does happen in the fall and into the winter for certain.” Again, she said that the exact nature of the bug is not currently known but generally speaking, in cases of a serious outbreak, a warning would come from the public health realm. “It would be a public health warning from the medical health officer, so that’s how it would come out and there hasn’t been that determination yet,” Crane explained. “Good handwashing and proper handwashing are the best ways of preventing the virus and reducing its spread and that goes for the community as well,” she said.

z THE WAY IT WAS

B.C. government bans cutting, transporting balsam trees throughout province in 1967 1907 A committee was set up to investigate the possibility of forming an agricultural society locally to take over the racetrack and driving park from the Driving Association, with the intention of making the grounds accessible to all residents of the valley for holding exhibitions and as a public playground. 1912 The Colin Hotel, located at the Great Northern depot, was purchased by S.J. Mathews and Frank Peterson of Phoenix. 1917 Ivan “Mike” Mitchell, formerly prominent in western hockey and a member of the Phoenix hockey team in 1912, died in London from wounds in battle. 1922 The Provincial Potato Fair opened in Grand Forks with a remarkable showing of high quality potatoes from many points throughout the province. 1927 The Grand Forks Hotel was the scene of the annual banquet of the Kettle Valley Rifle Association. 1932 Bob Cress, known for his illegal escapades in the Boundary area, was being taken by train from Greenwood to the Oakalla prison when he jumped through a train window and escaped near Carmi. 1937 Christina Lake residents proposed a project whereby they would build a

telephone line from Cascade to Christina Lake and then turn it over to the B.C. Telephone Company for operation and maintenance. 1942 Harold Holmberg, assistant forest ranger for the past several years, was promoted to the position of ranger, succeeding Douglas Ross. 1947 Sam Talarico and Alan C. Clapp filed nomination papers to contest aldermanic seats in the forthcoming civic election. 1952 George Wellingson Steele, 88, a former North West Mounted Policeman and on the Kootenay’s most colourful Canadian pioneers, passed away at the home of his son, Cpl. F. Steele. 1957 Y. Sugimoto announced his candidacy for city council, seeking election to one of the two aldermanic seats open. 1962 Arthur Harfman won the grand championship of the B.C. Winter Fair, becoming the third Boundary resident to win the Syd Smith Challenge Trophy since 1959. 1967 The provincial government placed a ban on the cutting and transporting of balsam trees throughout the province. 1972 Fundraising for the Grand Forks Community Chest reached its goal of $7,500. 1977 More than 150 people gathered in

As of Dec. 1, the company’s allowable annual cut was increased on the Crown land they manage to 175,000 cubic metres, up from 145,000. 2007 Kimberley Dawn Colin, 26, of Greenwood died in Castlegar last week after fleeing police and ending up in Arrow Lake. Colin is a suspect in several breakins, along with 22-year-old Matthew Atchison, also of Greenwood. Atchison is still at large. The vehicle involved had been reported stolen in the South Okanagan and contained property stolen from recent break-ins in the local area.

Paved trail proposal to the Lake CONTINUED FROM PAGE 1

There will be various donors and funding through each of the three stages, including the City of Grand Forks, Roxul, Trans Canada Trail, Regional District of Kootenay Boundary Areas C and D, the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resources Operations and the federal government. Estimated costs have taken into account: engineering (at $25,000), gates and traffic control to install for $35,000 (for 10 gates at $3,000), control of organics for $6,000, soil sterilizant at $20,000, and subgrade preparation for $24,000. Grand Forks Community Trails Society director George Longden added there is also the possibility of funding from the gas tax funding from the city or regional district next year. “This is the kind of project that gas tax money is supposed to be spent on: things that are green initiative and will reduce carbon emissions, gets people out of cars and moving,” Longden said. “Gas tax money is an option that the city and regional district have, which is to spend the money on this kind of initiative. The beauty of this money is that if you have the commitment from the local government of those kinds of funds, you can leverage the money with the province or the federal government.” Mayor Brian Taylor, though fully supportive of the idea, is wary about the timing. “We need to look at some other priorities at this time and balance off some of the benefits for this particular project,” said Taylor. “I’m not sure the timing is off for this, but the trail society is very proactive and may find funding for this. In terms of the city’s responsibility, the society is asking us to support it at this time.” Taylor noted there is a section of the trail that they would have to contribute funding to, but when it will happen will be decided in the budget process. “This is a long-term project and we’re all in it for the long run,” he added. “It will be a big tourist draw and I like that it makes it available to people with mobility problems.”

News tips

The trail itself will be accessible to people of all ages, whether on mobility devices or bikes, for runners and walkers, and currently equestrians. “At this moment it is open to horses, most of (the trail) is 66 feet wide (20 metres), which is the standard for railroad trails,” said Longden. “That’s wide enough for what we call a braided trail. For people who are on mobility devices, biking or running, or just walking, they can use the paved part. If necessary we can mow a section alongside for the equestrians. We are trying to involve everyone, from equestrians to the ATV club.” Moslin pointed out asphalt has been chosen for the trails because of its durability and cost efficiency. After it cures, the asphalt is inert with the environment, prevents grass growth and is easy to maintain. “There are also two to three possibilities for tubing stations to be set up where people can be dropped off during the summer months to enjoy the river,” said Moslin. Longden hopes that the entire trail will be complete by 2017 to coincide with Canada’s 150th anniversary. For more information, visit gftrails.ca or the group’s Facebook page, Grand Forks Cascade Kettle River Heritage Trail.

Grand Forks RCMP arrested a 60-year-old woman for drug trafficking of marijuana just past midnight on Nov. 28. RCMP performed a vehicle stop to a Toyota Matrix travelling on Highway 3 near Nursery Road after a constable noted the vehicle was driven very slowly. The constable decided to perform a vehicle stop when she detected the smell of marijuana. “The driver admitted she had a small quantity of marijuana and handed it to the constable,” said Grand Forks RCMP’s Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison. “The driver was subsequently arrested and subsequent to the arrest there was a search of the vehicle done.” In the vehicle, 18.5 pounds of marijuana was found in individual bags. The female from Nakusp was arrested and was released on the condition she appear in court to answer to charges of possession of drugs for the purpose of trafficking in marijuana. Single vehicle roll-over Grand Forks RCMP received a report of a single vehicle collision east of Wilgress Lake near Grand Forks on Dec. 2 at 5:21 p.m. By the time police arrived, everyone had left the scene and police attended Boundary Hospital to speak with a witness. The witness noted Eholt summit was very slippery and he observed the vehicle, a red 1997 GMC Suburban 4x4, fishtail and go into the ditch. “The witness stopped and offered assistance to transport the people to the hospital,” said Harrison. “Our member spoke to the driver at the hospital who advised that she was going westbound and doing well under the speed limit when she lost control due to poor road conditions.”

The driver and passengers sustained minor cuts and bruises; the vehicle sustained only minor damage. Gas siphoned from vehicle Police received a report from a complainant about gasoline siphoned from his 2001 Malibu on Dec. 1 at 2:18 p.m. It is unknown when it happened but the vehicle was parked at his residence on 9th Street. It is an unknown quantity of gas that was taken and there are no suspects or witnesses at this time. “We don’t see a lot of these but every now and again we’re seeing it happen,” said Harrison. Bicycle versus vehicle A cyclist driving on the sidewalk at the Fifth Street and 72nd Avenue intersection in Grand Forks was injured when he hit a vehicle on Nov. 29 at 2:53 p.m. The bicyclist did not notice the SUV stopped at the intersection and ran into the side of the vehicle. There was minor damage to the bicycle and the bicycle driver sustained a bruised forearm but declined medical treatment. No charges were laid in the matter. “The bicyclist was warned about walking his bicycle across the crosswalk and not driving on the sidewalk,” said Harrison. Batteries stolen Two batteries were reported stolen from a forklift parked outside a business on Second Street in Grand Forks on Nov. 27. The batteries were described as Wal-Mart brand with cloth strap handles on them. “The culprits actually cut the cables rather than unhooking the cables, which caused around $200 further damage,” said Harrison. There are no suspects or witnesses at this time but the investigation is still on-going. Harrison noted RCMP would be speaking to the “regular suspects.”

❚ Our View

Spread word about sickness earlier A gastrointestinal bug has appeared at Boundary Hospital and Grand Forks. As of press time, it is not known whether it is a norovirus or not but people are exhibiting similar symptoms, which include fever, chills, vomiting, cramps and diarrhea and not surprisingly the virus can be found in the vomit and loose stools of people that are sick. Norovirus, often referred to as the stomach flu or winter vomiting disease, isn’t uncommon and is said to occur in places like nursing homes, daycare centres and there have even been reports on cruise ships and trains. People exhibiting symptoms at the hospital were isolated and staff members who had symptoms weren’t allowed to come in until they were free of symptoms for 48 hours. Boundary Hospital did limit the amount of visitors last week and posted signs at the front door, and throughout the hospital, warning of the possible norovirus. It advised people not to visit if they felt ill but there was no bulletin of any sort sent out. Granted, hospital staff said that testing was not complete and it is not known with 100 per cent certainty whether it was norovirus or not. Furthermore, a warning would have to come from public health. Nevertheless, a bulletin saying that there are reported cases of people exhibiting symptoms of the norovirus and reminding people to take precautions, in this case wash hands properly, would have been appropriate. The norovirus isn’t said to be too dangerous; as an entry at the Canadian government’s website said, it is unpleasant but self-limiting but based on the symptoms, it isn’t a good experience when people have it. Anyone that has had cramps, dizziness, diarrhea or has vomited, knows that it isn’t fun, especially if experiencing all those symptoms at once. The Grand Forks Gazette came upon the information of the possible norovirus through a tip and something should’ve been put out earlier advising people to be cautious.

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

It’s officially December and there’s no snow on the ground. Last year was my first winter in Grand Forks and I certainly recall there being at least a metre of snow on the ground and white fluff blowing around every other day. The snow shovels were out, as were the plows and trucks covering the roads with sand. This was also around the time I got my first chip on the windshield of my car – after driving across the country without so much as a scratch, a small pebble in Grand Forks decided to leave its mark. Something that I still have to get around to fixing. However, last week was focused on local events and shopping within the city, especially during community hosted fundraisers and shindigs. This month has a lot more

events lined up, from Christmas concerts, and more bake sales (yummy, yummy, in my tummy). If you hadn’t already guessed it from my previous columns, I love community gatherings, bake sales and homemade items. I had a mild panic attack when I realized December was here and I was still slowly making my way through all my crafts. It also had me doublechecking my lists and somehow adding more and more people onto said lists. I spent much of this past weekend putting together small items for my

friends and family, and discovered my embroidering skills have diminished greatly since the last time I evoked those fine skills. My fingertips were pricked one too many times for my liking, but at least I can say it was made with all my love, blood, sweat and tears. OK, maybe not sweat, nor tears – and OK, maybe I was exaggerating with the blood (though there were a few drops), but there is certainly a lot of love involved in the process. Oh, and the possibility of mild profanities colouring my sentences. After all, ‘tis the season to be merry, and jolly, and happy, so keep that beautiful smile on your face because the month has just started. Even if your finger is jabbed once too many by a needle or your Christmas lights are all tangled and knotted.

LETTERS z TAXATION

Remember the kids before you make cuts Editor: British Columbia’s tax cuts to the very wealthy have caused enormous debt in this province, despite what Christy Clark will have you believe. B.C.’s debt was approximately $33.4 billion in 2006. By Nov. 2012, the provincial total debt soured to about $66 billion! In 2010, taxpayers spent about $7 million dollars per day to fund the debt, and that is much greater today. This is money that should be used for health care and education. The tax cuts the B.C. Liberals gave rich banks and oil companies don’t put people to work. That money could be used taking care of the one in four kids who go to bed hungry in B.C. and B.C. deserves better. Gladys Brown, Midway

z HEALTH

owned and operated neighbourhood pharmacy. This argument is a fallacy as the vast majority of those independently owned and operated pharmacies in B.C. have already made the voluntary and health-promoting decision not to sell tobacco. The over 400 pharmacies and stores that contain a pharmacy that still continue to sell tobacco in B.C. are primarily large chains stores, whose corporate head offices are placing their own business interests above the health interests of their customers and communities. We, along with our fellow health related organizations the College of Pharmacists of B.C., the BC Medical Association and the Canadian Cancer Society, BC and Yukon, believe it’s time that the provincial government did the right thing to make drug stores truly places of health care and legislate the removal of cigarettes and other tobacco products from British Columbia pharmacies and stores that contain a pharmacy. It is time that B.C. joined the confederation of all the other provinces who have already taken leadership in this important area of tobacco control. In this instance, being late is better than never. Diego Marchese, CEO, BC and Yukon Heart and Stoke Foundation, Scott McDonald, president and CEO of BC Lung Association

Pharmacies should butt z BULLYING Stand up to out violence against women Editor: On May 31, 2013, British Columbia will have the infamous distinction of being the only Canadian province that still allows tobacco to be sold in pharmacies and stores that contain a pharmacy. Pharmacies are places where people go for health care, not to purchase a deadly product that, when used as directed, is still the number one cause of preventable death and disease in the province. The argument is often made that forcing pharmacies to stop selling tobacco will economically hurt small business - “the little guy” – the independently

Editor: Every Dec. 6, Canadians wear white ribbons and observe a minute of silence to show their support for ending violence against women. The occasion, informally known as White Ribbon Day, marks the anniversary of the 1989 École Polytechnique Massacre, in which 14 women were singled out for their gender and

z OPINION murdered. While Canada has made important progress since that tragic day, we have a long way to go. Too many women continue to experience physical, psychological and sexual abuse. There are no easy solutions to these complex issues, but Parliament will soon have a chance to take practical action on one part of the problem – cyberbullying. Cyberbullying is a powerful, relentless and insidious tool used by children and adults alike. There is no escape. Cyberbullying follows you worldwide and over your lifetime, ruining careers and reputations as adults. As one cyber-bullied young student told me: “You have no place to run, no way to hide. Everyone knows. You feel trapped and cornered forever. Your life is ruined!” Bullying by spreading false messages, criminal harassment and defamatory libel is already covered under the Criminal Code if it is done using print, telephone, television or radio— but not on the Internet. I have a bill to correct that and extend protection to electronic media, a long overdue step. It will remove the anonymity that currently shields those who use the Internet to do so by requiring disclosure from ISPs. This plan has been endorsed by the Canadian Teachers’ Federation and the Canadian Association of Police Boards. Our children need this protection. Yet most of the Conservative Party shockingly voted against this bill at second reading. Their opposition is difficult to understand. Parliamentarians should be working together to strengthen action on bullying, not trying to stop it. Please tell the Conservatives to vote for Bill C-273 when it comes back to the House and take a small, but important, step against the cyberbullying of our children. By doing so they will also be honouring the spirit of White Ribbon Day and helping protect women. Dr. Hedy Fry, Liberal Party of Canada

Why Christina Lake is happy to go buggy

I never thought I would be so happy to hear Christina Lake has bugs, but I am. In fact, I am ecstatic. Of course, most of you have already figured out I am reGRACE McGREGOR ferring to the milfoil weevils: those little tiny beetles that are as big as a grain of rice and are silver-bellied. The results are in, the DNA has been tested and eureka they are the right genus; they were found in all stages of development. It was a long wait, or it sure seemed like it for some of us. Now the work starts – paper work that is. Just to fill some of you in that have not kept up with the process; Christina Lake has been fighting milfoil for years. Our taxpayers have also been picking up the tab for treatment without help from any other government agency, municipality or the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) area – it is currently a $300,000 service. At the same time, we have also been researching other ways to treat the infestation. The best one we found is the weevil. It is interesting that such a very small piece of the (milfoil) weed can grow so easily. I once tested this in my backyard pond. I put a milfoil plant in a pot, then toward the end of the summer, when the water was still really warm, I broke a piece off and let it float. Considering that I have a black liner in the pond, and little to no soil over the liner, I expected no growth from the fragment. To my astonishment the fragment took hold in the soft debris covering the liner. I learned then first-hand just how difficult this plant is to control. Although eradication would be nice, reality tells us that it would be next to impossible. During the summer, the RDKB engaged Enviroscience, a private biology firm to undertake a presence/absence survey of Christina Lake to provide evidence that the milfoil weevil is native to the lake. Enviroscience found over a dozen samples of the weevil. The RDKB received confirmation from federal government laboratories in Ottawa that the weevil found is Euhrychiopsis lecontei (Dietz), the weevil that eats milfoil. Alan Stanley, RDKB director of environmental services stated, “Once there was proof that the weevil is native to Christina Lake, the RDKB contacted provincial government officials to determine the next steps in acquiring approval to test the weevil as a milfoil control agent.” We are currently waiting for return calls from the province to find out what the next steps are. In the meantime, it is important for everyone on the lake to know that the double dive team this year has done phenomenal work and made a huge dent in the existing milfoil. We will continue the double dive team. Do we know how long it will take to get approval to use the little critters? The short answer is no. We are hoping that the province will help pave the way to expedite this process. Having said that, it remains anyone’s guess as to timing. I continue to be optimistic and excited about the prospect of using this form of bio control as treatment of this very invasive weed and ultimately being able to lower our service requisition amount to a number more palatable to all of Christina Lakes taxpayers. – Grace McGregor is RDKB Area C director

RDKB to assume responsibility of Saddle Lake in Area D

CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) Area D has plans to take responsibility of Saddle Lake. A motion was passed at the last RDKB board of directors regular meeting in Grand Forks and RDKB Chief Administrative Officer John MacLean explained that Saddle Lake is a small man-made lake located in Electoral Area D, just west of the City of Grand Forks. Constructed in 1923 by the Doukhobor community, the dam was created to supply irrigation water for agricultural purposes in the area. “The lake is formed by spring water (there are no visible creeks or streams feeding the lake) being retained by a concrete dam,” he said. “From our conversations with the Province of B.C., other than a few simple projects that will require some financial resources at the outset, what is needed the most is monitoring.” MacLean noted there are costs and risks associated with taking responsibility of the lake and dam, but there are services in place to take on the responsibility. Property owner Lorraine Hubbard

noted she and her husband originally purchased the water rights in 1983. Hubbard cited her age and the fact that she doesn’t need the water source anymore as a reason for passing on the lake. This also includes new regulatory requirements created by the provincial government in response to the Testalinden Dam failure near Oliver. “There is a lot of maintenance and everything also has to be done and I don’t have the strength to do it,” she explained. “I don’t use it anymore so why should I have it. At the moment everything is still up in the air and it’s taking some time so right now the rights are still mine.” The process began in April 2011, but Hubbard noted there has been a lot of paperwork to get to this point. A letter to Hubbard from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations explained there were several issues that need to be addressed as well before the water rights could be exchanged, including an emergency preparedness plan that has to be submitted, an annual formal inspection of the dam and recorded results have not occurred. According to a letter addressed to

Hubbard, the ministry recommended items that need to occur include “a spillway structure, vegetative growth on the downstream dam must be removed and maintenance and testing of the outlet valve must be carried out.” However, after a cursory assessment, Saddle Lake dam appears structurally sound. RDKB Area D director Irene Perepolkin agreed, pointing out the trade is still in the very early stages. “We’re still in the process now so the responsibilities of the regional district aren’t clear yet,” said Perepolkin. “It has been approved before the board and there are still a few things that have to be ironed out before we can proceed with anything. The whole board has to agree with anything we plan to do if we decide to start up any new services, and this is a new service.” Perepolkin hopes to maintain the current lake and keep it natural with no developments. “We may add a couple of trails through there with a couple of tables and benches, but nothing has been decided as yet,” she concluded. “We hope keep the lake as is for its natural and habitat values, as well as its heritage values.”

Community gears up to help needy at Christmas

KARL YU

Gazette Editor

With the holiday season approaching, the Community Christmas Hamper program is once again accepting donations. Karren Donald, community care co-ordinator for the Gospel Chapel, says while all donations are welcome, there are always items that are in short supply. “We’re always low on things for special diets, like for gluten-free or for diabetics or high-protein diets. PediSure for babies that are on special diets, diapers and things like canned fruit, the canned soups, the chicken noodle and the vegetable, which children like more than the tomato and mushroom. Cereals, hot chocolate, kid-friendly things,” explained Donald, adding that turkey donations are a big help as well. The Community Christmas Hamper program gives turkeys to families and hams for single people and the trimmings, like stuffing, are items that volunteers usually have to go out and buy as well. According to Donald, the hamper consists of a full breakfast and a full dinner. “We do eggs, bread, cereal, peanut and jam, coffee and sugar, Coffee-Mate for breakfast and dinner, potatoes, onions, carrots, turkey, cranberry sauce, Stove Top Stuffing and we fill up the box with extras like Kraft Dinner, soups, canned stews, things like that because it’s a while from Christmas Day until the food bank opens again in January,” she said. “Also the ones in the outlying areas might not have transportation to get in right away in January, so we try to give them a bit extra to hold them until they can get back into the food bank.” Toy donations are also accepted as well but rather than buying a random toy and dropping it off, there are specific items which can be found on Angel Trees located at His “N Hers Fashions, Overwaitea, CIBC and Grand Forks Credit Union with angels listing items for children up to 12 years. “If there are any special requests from the parents, like Lego or art supplies, we put that on the angel to put up and also diaper size, formula needed, that type of thing,” Donald said. “The one at His ‘N Hers is a teen tree, which is really nice. They’ve started that this year so all their angels are from 13 to 18 years. Eighteen is the cut off if they’re still in school. If they’re out on their own, they’re classed as an adult,” she added. Also at Grand Forks Credit Union and the Gospel Chapel, there are boxes for new socks, mittens and toques for adults – Donald says there are a lot of those items for chil-

National Day of Remembrance on Remembering the history of the Winnipeg Hotel Violence Against Women Dec. 6 z Local Submission

Submitted

Thursday, Dec. 6 marks the 23rd anniversary of the massacre of 14 young women at l’École Polytechnique de

Montréal. In 1991 the Parliament of Canada declared this date as the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women in Canada. The Montreal Massacre has become symbolic of the fight to end violence against women. As well as commemorating the 14 young women of Montreal, and countless other women whose lives have ended in acts of gender-based violence, Dec. 6 represents an opportunity for Canadians to reflect on the phenomenon of violence against women in our society. It is also an opportunity to consider the women and girls for whom violence is a daily reality. And finally, it is a day on which communities can consider concrete actions to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls. In keeping with the federal initiative to fly the Canadian flag at half-mast on Dec. 6, the City of Grand Forks in 2010 agreed to have the flag lowered to half-mast on this date as well. The Boundary Women’s Coalition will be holding a vigil at the city hall cenotaph at noon on Thursday, Dec. 6. The vigil will be followed by a light lunch and a National Film Board short

video After the Montreal Massacre at the Boundary Women’s Resource Centre (268 Market Avenue). More than 20 years after the tragic events in Montreal, violence against women continues to be a serious issue in Canada. The Boundary Women’s Coalition welcomes all those who share our concern for the safety of women to join in this event.

At over a century old, the remains of the Winnipeg Hotel is the oldest hotel standing in Grand Forks after multiple fires destroyed several structures over the years. Construction of the Winnipeg Hotel began in 1900 in the Morrison Block of Grand Forks and officially opened on Jan. 4, 1901. As found in the Gazette archives, Dr. and Mrs. Murry owned the hotel, which was “a lovely public home in appearance rather than a hotel, and this impression is strengthened after a visit to the interior is made, not only the treatment of the jenial doctor and esteemable wife, but the general aspect of house through, at to this feeling of homeliness.” Records show that the hotel had ivy-trellished windows framing white tables that were hosted by courteous waiters and delicious fare. The walls were pure white, with blue and gold touches. The hotel had 30 rooms unlike regular hotel quarters, with its velvet carpets and Japanese touches. There were carved chests, antique tapestries, “tempting couches and

chairs” that gave the hotel a homey fell. There were modern appliances such as baths, electric bells and lights, along with a hotel carriage that was able to transport guests to various locations, including the local train station. The Winnipeg Hotel, a woodframed building, managed to survive both the fires in 1908 and 1911. Originally built with a corner tower and bay windows, the hotel was a good example of the Queen Anne Commercial Style, which was the most common High Victorian style in Grand Forks. On March 7, 2012, the Winnipeg Hotel and the Grand Forks Hotel were set on fire. Though the Grand Forks Hotel was completely destroyed in the early morning fire, the Winnipeg Hotel stayed intact for the most part. The Winnipeg sustained smoke damage to the inside of the building and minor exterior damage due to the fire. At this point, developers hope to replace the damaged Winnipeg with a retail beer store. A development permit has been submitted to the City of Grand Forks due to existing city bylaws.

Intense is one word long-time Grand Forks resident Gary Gilbert would use to describe his experience in the CBC reality series Dragon’s Den. Now living in Sechelt, Gilbert explained that Dragon’s Den was touring around Canada looking for inventors for the next season and he jumped on board. After auditioning with his product, the Night Beacon, he was selected to go to Toronto to film his segment. “It was pretty intense,” he recalled. “It’s one thing on TV but when you get there there’s a lot of waiting and anxiousness involved but everybody was friendly from the time I walked into the building.” Gilbert pointed out this wasn’t an original concept, but the Night Beacon has advantages over similar products now available on the market. “The signaling devices are vandal-proof, theft-proof and costs less than half of what the other products cost,” he explained. “It’s a signaling device for waiting passengers at bus stops to signal the bus drivers during the hours of darkness in rural, poorly or unlit areas. It’s a fairly specific market.” However, Gilbert noted the Dragons didn’t get the message. “They could not grasp the concept of being stranded in the middle

of nowhere because a bus driver couldn’t see them waiting at a dark bus stop with bear and deer and cougars,” he said. “In fact, I doubt any of the Dragons have ever been on a public bus.” The segment that was aired exaggerated the signaling device, and though there were good laughs about it, Gilbert noted the actual discussion lasted well over 20 minutes. “Bruce (Croxon of Dragon’s Den) was pretty cool and he got on the floor with me… but they really didn’t understand the rural concept. They didn’t beat me up too much,” Gilbert added. Gilbert noted there is still an opportunity to gain a higher profile on the Dragon’s Den website with the “In or Out Leaderboard” at cbc.ca/ dragonsden. He was informed there would be a pitch page that contains some details about the pitch where the audience is able to vote on the pitch. The top five pitches with the most “In” votes are highlighted on the index page of Dragon’s Den website. All you need is a Facebook account to register your vote, Gilbert added. There are currently 50 units in place on the Sunshine Coast and “drive-bys” (when the buses continue past the stop without stopping) have dropped to one or two a month. For more information of Gilbert’s product, visit thenightbeacon.com.

Members of the 39th Engineer Battalion replaced the wooden footbridge at Texas Creek in Christina Lake with a new aluminum bridge. Submitted Photo Gazette Reporter

Bridges and trestles have been constructed and replaced throughout Grand Forks and Christina Lake with the help of the Canadian military’s 39th Engineer Battalion from Trail. Roland Krueger, the honourary Lt.-Col. of Regiment 39 (a civilian), works as the go between for communities and the regiment with various projects. These projects include Rail to Trail bridges and trestles. Krueger received a call from a neighbour last April asking for assistance in installing an aluminum bridge that BC Parks had purchased to install across Texas Creek at Christina Lake. “BC Parks had enough money to buy the bridge but not enough to put it in place,” recalled Krueger. “I thought it would be far too heavy to put into place with the seniors we have here and thought it would be a great opportunity to get my regiment involved.” On Nov. 16 to 18, around 25 members of the 39th regiment gathered at Texas Point campground in Christina Lake to remove the old bridge and replace it with the new bridge. “The wooden bridge has been there for over 20 years and was recently declared unsafe by BC Parks,” explained Krueger. “The logs itself were still good but the dimensions and the surface that people walk on were a disaster.” During the weekend, the regiment stimulated a situation where they had no gasoline and electricity available, and everything had to be completed by hand, he added. From there,

they built two three-legged tripod cranes reaching close to six metres tall and held together with knots and lashing. “The guys got the training on the correct rope work and the correct knots to hold everything – each tower can support up to 15,000 pounds,” Krueger said. “We had one on each side of the bridge so we strung a cable across the two and anchored the cable into the ground.” The project also involved moving heavy concrete blocks to act as abutments for the bridge before the bridge was installed. The bridge itself was in two pieces and seven metres long. “Overall, the bridge was much lighter than the concrete blocks,” he chuckled. “After all that work it took us all of 10 minutes to move the bridge across the gap and put it into place. The majority of the time was building the tripod, getting everything set up and wrestling those concrete blocks into place.” Over the past few years, the regiment has complete four bridges in Grand Forks (including the Black Train Trestle) and three at Christina Lake. A future project may include replacing a bridge at Sandner Creek at the north end of Christina Lake. “That will be a great exercise because we can combine so many elements of training in one task,” Krueger concluded. “It’s boat access only, so we will have to build a raft.” The 39th Engineering Battalion is headquartered in Chilliwack, with three squadrons across British Columbia (Trail, Chilliwack and North Vancouver) and around 250 members.

Pet of the Week Lucky

We have no idea what made us decide on the spur of the moment to go by the SPCA on Christmas Eve five years ago. We parked, looked into the kennel that was right in front of us and there was Lucky giving us an “I want to adopt you look”, and so home he went with us. He and my partner are constant companions, they are seldom separated for more than a few minutes. If one is not looking for the other it is because they’re having a snooze.

Brain Food for Kids Antioxidants: You can think of antioxidants as the nutritional equivalent of Scotchgard — these nutrients protect your toddler’s brain from normal wear and tear. Where you’ll find them: Blueberries are packed with antioxidants. Strawberries, raspberries, and blackberries are great choices, too. You’ll also find antioxidants in tons of other fruits and vegetables — the more brightly colored, the more nutrient dense. In addition, nuts, seeds, and nut/seed butters are good sources of the antioxidant vitamin E, which protects brain-cell membranes from damage. Choline: Choline is a nutrient that is essential for brain development and memory function, and it helps the brain communicate with the rest of the body. Where you’ll find it: Eggs (especially the yolk), beans, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, yogurt, tofu, buckwheat, and lean beef. Omega-3 Essential Fatty Acids: These healthy fats are the good stuff in breast milk and fortified baby formulas. They are crucial to brain and eye development, and they help stabilize mood. Where you’ll find them: Salmon, shrimp, scallops, walnuts, flaxseed, and omega-3 enriched eggs and yogurt. taken from http://www.whattoexpect.com/toddler-nutrition/brain-food-for-kids.aspx Success By 6 supports parents and communities in creating healthy, nurturing environments for our youngest children, so that by age 6, they are physically, socially, and emotionally ready to succeed in school.

COMMUNITY z EDUCATION

Hutton Grade 6 students learn about poverty, budget

CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

Grade 6 students at Hutton Elementary School learned about the difficulties of child poverty when they went on a budget for a day. As the province with the highest rate of child poverty in the country, British Columbia has more than 90,000 children living in poverty, including those in Grand Forks. “Province-wide, all of the teachers who are social justice representatives, we’re thinking a lot about child poverty because it has such a huge impact on our kids’ learning,” said teacher Melissa Shaw. “It dovetailed nicely with the social studies unit that my kids are working on and that’s global citizenship.” Shaw noted the students looked at how life would be without a job, shelter or enough food to eat. As a part of the class project, Shaw tried to plan out a menu for a week but had difficulty reducing the bill to under $40 so she brought a copy to class. “I brought a stack of flyers and let them attack it to see what I could live without and what I couldn’t let go of,” she explained. “The kids did try it for a day and some did it for longer than a day.” A reality students in the classroom faced

was unsuspecting costs, including how to determine the costs of meat. “My class is full of meat eaters and they said they could afford this chicken, ‘it’s only (a small amount),’” Shaw recalled. “But I pointed out that is only for a kilogram and you might not be able to buy a package smaller than three or four kilograms. It was a good math lesson but they also realized that meat and fruits and vegetables were probably not going to be part of the plan.” Parent Advisory Committee member Sandra Cheverie and her son Adam also participated in the challenge. “It’s something that I’ve talked about with my kids and hearing my son Adam learn from his teacher has been a really interesting outcome,” Cheverie said. “He had an idea of what things cost, about what was expensive and what wasn’t, which was something he wasn’t interested in before.” Cheverie noted the project brings an awareness to students about the problem, as well as educational skills such as math. “We did a lot of research beforehand with the flyers so we knew we wouldn’t be able to be healthy and live on that,” Shaw said. “You could probably get enough calories, which is why I think poverty and obesity are related, but you couldn’t have a healthy diet.”

BCRCC continues to grow, hosts second AGM CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

In its second year of operation, the Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce (BCRCC) held its annual general meeting on Nov. 27 at gallery 2 in Grand Forks. BCRCC President Todd Benson feels the chamber has grown since the first year but there’s always room for development. “It’s continuing to grow with membership and we’re hoping to hit 250 members,” he said. “We think that as we grow, people will see that the chamber will benefit everybody. We’re still young and still trying to build what we have.” Benson noted the chamber is looking to advocate membership and build its networks between businesses. This includes continuing with its Biz after Biz events that occur on a bi-monthly basis, and regular updates with online newsletters and emails. “We would like to see more of our members out because this is their meeting,” he added. This year’s guest speaker was British Columbia Chamber of Commerce President and CEO John Winter and he pointed out that awareness is key. “If businesses are aware that there is a thriving, active, dy-

Dog association seeking dog-friendly bylaw

CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

After a presentation at a recent city council meeting, the Kootenay Boundary Pet Dog Association is hoping the city and Regional District of Kootenay Boundary will begin the process of creating dog-friendly bylaws. Anita Krause, member of the pet dog association and spokesperson, explained the group is aiming to promote humane treatment for dogs in the community. “When the dog association first formed, we created our mandate to remember that we have to look at the dog’s needs,” she said. “That means well-housed, well-fed, the enclosure is proper and they’re well exercised; when those are taken care of, then they don’t have needs and aren’t problem dogs.” The Kootenay Boundary Pet Dog Association hopes that a bylaw will be created to unify the community with some set standards that everyone can follow. Krause told The Gazette that means the bylaw would have to be progressive, effective and meet everybody’s needs. “There really isn’t much in (Grand Forks and RDKB current bylaws) and the point of that is that it has caused some problems for the city and the district,” she said. “Our proposal was to look at everyone’s needs, from pets to pet owners to the community. There are some people who aren’t dog lovers and they also have rights.” Most importantly; however, was that the dog association

We were very well received at the meeting because we did consider everybody’s needs.” Mayor Brian Taylor noted the city has room for improvement in giving residents clear messages around their dogs. “I really think it’s time we reviewed our dog bylaw and take a look at how we can be more dog friendly,” he said. On a recent trip to Whistler, B.C., Taylor experienced a place where dogs were let into restaurants and taxis, and were very much integrated into the whole community. “I’m not suggesting we go quite that far, but clearly there are things that we can do with the growing popularity of seniors with pets,” he said. “I think it’s an important part of making this community liveable.” As with other municipalities and closed dog parks, Taylor also pointed out dogs do need off-leash time but owners should have control over their dogs. “We have to allow dogs off their leash when they are controlled and we need to offer places where they can do that,” he concluded. Krause added the association understands this will take time. “We’re not in a rush and good laws aren’t established off the hip,” she concluded.

namic organization like a chamber, they will want to join,” said Winter. “The problem with too many chambers in the past is that they tend to be very inwardly focused, such as the beautification of Main Street as their top goal, instead of the issues of small businesses.” The chamber has to focus on the needs of its members, he added. Businesses are all different but also share several common goals, whether it’s location, economic sector or the market they deliver to. “Growth in the rural communities for membership isn’t happening, whereas in urban communities they are. It’s also happening more so in the south, as opposed to the north,” Winter concluded. “It’s commendable that this organization, and these people here, are taking the challenge of creating something as diverse as these communities are and bringing them together.” Joining the current board of Benson, Dylan Zorn, John Fair, Mark Grimm and Dave Marshall are Wendy Darbyshire, Chuck Bennett, Christopher Stevenson and Pru Zerny. The purpose of the chamber is to promote and build a strong business network that promotes Boundary Country. This also involves encouraging business and community development, and enriching the region in a sustainable way. For more information, visit boundarychamber.com.

As wood stoves are turned on for the winter, the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) has received funding for its wood stove exchange program. The Ministry of Environment has provided $10,500 to the RDKB Provincial Wood Stove Exchange Program to help encourage residents to replace old wood stoves with cleaner burning models. RDKB Woodstove Exchange program co-ordinator John Vere noted the funding would be shared throughout the district. “There is funding for 30 stoves (at $250 for each grant totaling $7,500) to be shared throughout the RDKB,” he said. “The balance of $3,000 is for administration, education and advertising.” The RDKB is one of 14 communities and regional districts to receive the funding, and the Ministry of Environment hopes to exchange around 700 stoves in 2013. Minister of Environment Terry Lake stated in a press release that the government is committed to reducing the number of old, inefficient wood stoves in the provinces. “By upgrading to a new stove and following the tips to burn smarter, British Columbians can ensure better air quality in their communities and a more positive effect on their own health,” said Lake. For this year, Vere noted there are only four grants left. “The grants will be gone very soon,” he said. “Next year, the program will run in March/April and then in October / November 2013. Grant checks, however, will only be issued in those four months.”

Residents with questions can contact Vere or can submit their applications for a replacement year round, Vere pointed out. Vere also hosts workshops to explain the differences in wood stoves and the benefits of exchanging an old model to a cleaner, efficient wood stove.

SD51 helps youth succeed with data program School District 51 (SD51) continues to help young students succeed by looking at the Early Development Indicator (EDI) report through the Human Early Learning Partnership (HELP) data collection. Collected in two-year cycles, or waves, HELP works to bring together academic, government, school and community partners to look at early childhood development across the province. SD51 Director of Instruction Maxine Ruzicka noted that this was the first year of wave five so this is not the full report. “Our data is stacked because of our low numbers but this first report gives you an indication of what our first year data looks like,” Ruzicka said. “As you can tell from looking at it, in essence we are probably very close to the same number of kids that are vulnerable that we have seen in the last wave, which is close to 30 per cent across the Boundary.” HELP looks at five scales: physical health and well-being, social competence, emotional maturity, language and cogni-

tive skills, and communication skills. Overall, the results showed that the Boundary region had a vulnerability rate of 30 per cent in 2011/2012. In the previous data collection (Wave 4), it was 29 per cent. The EDI results showed that district wide, the highest level of vulnerability was at 14 per cent on the emotional maturity scale. The lowest percentage of vulnerable children was in the language and cognitive development scale, as well as the communication skills and general knowledge scale at nine per cent. “When we tracked and looked at that information, in essence the numbers are small in Christina Lake,” explained Ruzicka. “Whether you’re looking at Grand Forks, Midway, Greenwood, Rock Creek, it’s not localized in one area. What is localized is the type of vulnerability, which means what kinds of response do our early years providers and support people need to focus on because of where that area is.” Ruzicka noted that once the EDI is done this February, the final results should be available at the end of June or early July.

COMMUNITY z EDUCATION

Solar car races being built again by local students CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

Handmade solar cars will be created again in schools as a part of environmental education during science classes in Grand Forks. Project co-ordinator Paul Pinard noted that he and Chris Moslin began the project two years ago when the issues of greenhouse gas emissions first came up during a meeting of the now defunct Boundary Air Quality Committee. Pinard recently presented the project to members of the board and asked for money in support of continuing the program. The committee board voted to set aside $1,000 from the budget to continue this project in the schools. “We’d go to the schools, and as a science project, we’d build solar cars with Grade 6 and 7 students,” Pinard noted. “We didn’t do it this year because we had a new council and the committee wasn’t fully organized yet. I’ve had a few questions from teachers and kids and personally I feel it’s not all that expensive and it’s a worthwhile project.” Five car kits are purchased from Vancou-

ver, with 50 cars in each kit, and costs $165. FortisBC previously supplied $500 each year to offset the costs of the kits. Pinard added that the net cost he’s asking of the Grand Forks Environment Committee is $614. “We have a race day when the cars are complete where the cars are judges by best looking, most original, and fastest car,” Pinard said. “We had a race track made, stored at the city and both times before, we had the race during the fall fair.” Pinard pointed out that the costs for the kits may have gone up since. Grand Forks Environment Committee board chair Cher Wyers noted it would be safer to allocate $1,000 to the project since the costs of the kits are still unknown. “It is an educational tool and educating our younger students, the Grades 6 and 7, into an environmental issues and it was missed at the fall fair,” she said. Gary Smith agreed and is thrilled to support the project. “I was in Vancouver a while back and we went to Science World and I bought my grandson an electric solar car kit,” he said. “We built it together and it was a lot of fun.”

Protecting Lewis woodpecker part of ministry initiative

CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

The protection of the Lewis’ woodpecker in Grand Forks is part of a Ministry of Environment initiative aimed at protecting species and ecosystems at risk on private lands in British Columbia with the help of local governments. Presented by Jenny Coleshill, the project co-ordinator for the Granby Wilderness Society, at a recent Grand Forks Environment Committee meeting, the Species and Ecosystems at Risk Local Government Working Group was originally established in 2009. “The challenge is to protect species and ecosystems at risk (SEARS) on private land,” Coleshill explained. “Six per cent of B.C. is private land and there’s a higher portion of these species on private land, while 30 per cent of plants at risk are on private land and residential and commercial development is the most common threat.” She noted that a University of British Columbia poll shows strong public support for species and ecosystems at risk. “If you take B.C., 34 per cent of SEAR are very localized and only 10 per cent of SEAR can be found across B.C., such as tiger salamanders, which is only found in a tiny chunk of southern B.C. in the Okanagan,” she added. The Ministry of Environment established this group to develop a collaborative vision in the province for species and ecosystems at risk on private land. The outcome was a paper presented in January 2011 that includes five key strategies and 45 recommendations to enhance the protection of species and ecosystems at risk. The group includes membership from regional and municipal governments from across the province. Coleshill noted that the group is currently coming up with a five-year plan focused on the five key strategies, including: group meetings; work planning (organizing budget); and provincial prospective outlines how the province can support local government and stewardship. The group will also create structure for province wide documents and establish a steering committee with local government representing it; and rotating around each year, including Ministry of Environment, the Ministry of Forests, Lands and National Resources Operations, and the UBCM (Union of British Columbia Municipalities). “The next step is to initiate sub-working groups in four to five regions, pilot implementation of recommendations

and priorities in gaps in the Okanagan in summer 2012, and regional focus on broadening discussion with local governments and local conservation groups,” she said. “We have to come up with a way to link north communities.” Plans already implemented in Grand Forks for protecting species at risk include increasing the habitat for the Lewis’ woodpecker. Board chair to the Grand Forks Environment Committee Cher Wyers said that municipal governments are looking for an exclusive ministry to be created to look after wildlife. “We shouldn’t have to be putting money from local money to manage wildlife that are conflicting with our local area,” Wyers said. “This year, Grand Forks put $35,000 into our deer committee. We can do all this planning and deer count, but the bottom line is, the provincial government has the last call on what we can do with those animals,” she added.

Promoting healthy living amongst students one goal of Health Promoting Schools program

CASSANDRA CHIN Gazette Reporter

Promoting healthy living in schools in Grand Forks and School District 51 is one of the main goals in the Health Promoting Schools program. During her presentation at recent School District 51 school board meeting, Health Promoting Schools co-ordinator Heather Shilton explained making the healthy choice should be the easy choice. “Parents strongly agree that healthy food shouldn’t be limited at school, but they should be allowed to give their children what they want,” she said. “What we think is normal has really changed with the times and how we serve food makes a difference.” Shilton added students who were able to eat well and are healthy focus better academically, are absent and are tardy less often, and function better behaviourally and emotionally. “Students are less anxious and are ready to learn in class, so it’s not just about the health benefits of being fits,”

she said. School health teams identify health promotion needs and create plans to address those needs. From there, Shilton explained the plans are implemented and evaluated to see how successful they are. In the third year of a three-year contract with the Interior Health Authority (IHA), schools in the district have seen an improvement in healthy options, including active transportation and class discussions. “Programs such as iWalk week, where students walked around the block before school and were given a healthy snack, are helping students and keeping them active,” said Shilton. “There are in-class discussions about the benefits of physical activity and PACs (parent advisory committees) also serve healthy snacks that have been donated by local grocery stores.” Shilton noted IHA is interested in continuing to fund the program and there is also a provincial interest in improving the health of its residents.

Bowen scores trick, Grand Forks wins 5-4

KARL YU

Gazette Editor

The Grand Forks Border Bruins earned their fourth win of the season, and first win at Grand Forks Arena in over two years, defeating the Kimberley Dynamiters 5-4 on Saturday. While the team dropped a home-and-home series against the Nelson Leafs the two days previous (5-3 and 6-2 losses respectively), the team responded in its third game in three nights with a hat trick from forward Connor Bowen and goals from Chase Anchikoski and Connor Gross. Goalie Dominic Stadnyk earned his third win of the season, stopping 37 of 41 shots. Bowen was aptly named the game’s first star and currently is third in team scoring with eight goals and eight assists. “There were some great passes from some great players (Jacob Jeske, Connor Gross, Nathan Cory, Connor Kidd had assists) and I just happened to put the puck in the net,” Bowen said postgame. The Bruins’ top line normally consists of Gross and Jeske with Jackson Purvis, but Purvis sustained a charley horse injury on Thursday, meaning Bowen was moved back into the top line, a space he was in earlier in the season. “They mashed up a couple of players together and I think we clicked and maybe we’ll see (the same combination) if Purvis is still out, maybe if he comes back in, we’ll swap it up a little bit,” opined Bowen. With Border Bruins’ head coach and general manager Nick Deschenes away at a coaching clinic, assistant coaches Matt Zamec and Scott

Savitskoff manned the bench and both were happy with the team. “Bowen stepped up with a huge game when we needed him, with Purvis out, he stepped up and got a hat trick,” said Savitskoff. “We have that depth and I think that’s what’s really helping us out.” Zamec, a long-time assistant, has been with the team through some rough times and while the team still is in the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League basement, he sees the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. “The boys have been playing well lately, things are coming together and I think we’re going to start coming out on the right end of things here more often than not,” Zamec said. “The boys put in a good effort, Dom played great in net, Kimberley came in a little short (on the bench) but it had all its skilled guys.” The game wasn’t without drama though as the Border Bruins saw a 5-3 lead cut down to 5-4 at the 3:13 mark of the third. In addition, a brouhaha ensued after the final buzzer with all the players on the ice but it didn’t amount to much. “It was kind of funny. I kind of knew it was going to happen looking at their game (Friday) against Spokane (a 6-2 loss with a penalty-laden third period),” explained Stadnyk, adding that he was too busy celebrating to care. “The next thing I know, everyone’s piling up in the corner,” he said. Zamec said Purvis is day-to-day and could see action this weekend as the team travels to play games in Nelson, Columbia Valley, Golden and Kimberley. The team’s next home game is Dec. 14 vs. Golden.

Remember the participation badges back in elementary school? You tried so hard to earn a bronze, silver, gold or excellence. Remember all the active games we played as kids, running, jumping and climbing? Those were the days and the only time you went indoors was lunch and bed time. How time evolved and those active games were replaced by the electronic games and little active play. Our younger generation has developed more health issues, and obesity levels in our children today has reached an all time high. Grand Forks Recreation (GFREC) would like to help bring that level back down and get our children into active and healthier life styles. Make free-time a fun, regular time for active play. Give children and youth the opportunity to play freely and spontaneously after school and on the weekends by letting them decide what they like to do. They can connect with other children at the playground, play a game of hideand-seek, dance or explore nature. Create a safe, open area at home, either indoors or outdoors, with balls and toys that encourage active play. Create an environment that helps

foster imagination and spontaneity, with access to items to build a fort, a costume trunk and music. Accept that teens and “tweens” need free time to play without direct supervision, and without the assumption they are “up to no good.” Look into different play spaces, like fields or nature areas, to help facilitate active play.

The real St. Nicholas abhorred violence z View From The Pulpit REV. SIMON SHENSTONE

Tomorrow (Thursday, Dec. 6), is a special day in the calendar of the church. It is the commemoration of St. Nicholas, Bishop of Myra and it is also a special day in the calendar of Canada, being the National Day of Action on Violence Against Women, which commemorates those that died in the tragic Montreal Massacre, when 14 women were killed at a polytechnic institute in Montreal simply because of their gender. It is interesting that this day should fall on the same day, that we remember the saint who would, many centuries later, be transformed into the red-suited Santa Claus of North American shopping malls, or the Father Christmas of British high street department stores but there is a connection. To be such a well-known and venerated saint, very little is known about him. Nicholas was the fourth century bishop of Myra, now known as Mugla, and is situated in what is now southwestern Turkey. There are many legends depicting his kindness, compassion and generosity. The most famous being his kindness and care for three young women who were about to be sold into slavery as prostitutes by their parents due to their poverty. The legend tells that Nicholas left three bags of gold on their doorstep for their marriage dowries, saving them from a life of violence and prostitution. Many other stories are told of him saving people from desperate situations: young boys from violent murder, sailors from storms at sea. He is the patron saint of Russia as

well as children, sailors, unmarried young women, merchants, pawnbrokers, apothecaries and perfumieres, all connected in some way to the legendary events of his life. In memory of his deed of mercy to the three young girls about to be sold into slavery, the Dutch developed the custom of giving gifts to children on his feast day (Dec. 6). They brought this custom to America, where the Dutch Protestants of New Amsterdam (New York) united it with Nordic folklore legends of a magician, who would come down the smoke-hole of their medieval huts, punishing naughty children and rewarding good ones with presents. And so in time, “Sant Nikolaas” was changed into “Santa Claus” and the gift giving moved to Christmas. The real St. Nicholas died some 1,670 years ago, in the year 342, renowned for his compassion and mercy to all. So as we remember Nicholas, who abhorred the violence and cruelty of his Serving the community since 1936 time, let us also remember to stand against the violence, cruelty and prejudices Blaine R.

In Loving Memory

Maryann “Ann” Maida 1920 - 2012

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Maryann Maida on November 7, 2012, at the age of 92 years. Maryann will be dearly missed by daughters, Catharene (Cathy) (Glenn) and Rosemary (Dave); grandchildren, Andrew, Dan, Doug, Tammie, Joanne, Melanie, Allison and Dale; as well as great-grandchildren, Shayla, Sienna, BreeAnne, Dawson and Heidi-Rose. Maryann was predeceased by husband, Lou Maida, daughter, Patricia and son, Barry as well as her siblings. Maryann was born in Big River, Saskatchewan on July 16, 1920. She was very active in sports and played hockey for the women’s team and softball for the Saskatoon Pats. She later moved to B.C. where she met Lou. They were married at Christina Lake in 1940. Maryann lived in Saskatoon while Lou served in the army overseas. Their eldest daughter, Cathy, was born there. They returned to Christina Lake in 1946. Rosemary and Patricia were born a few years later. The family moved in 1952 to the mining town of Riondel where they settled, and Barry was an addition to the family in 1953. Maryann and Lou loved to spend time on Kootenay Lake boating and fishing with the family. In recent years, Maryann lived on her own in Grand Forks and had just moved into a new Independent Living Retirement Home in October. We know that she would want her friends in Riondel, Nelson and area to know of her passing. At Maryann’s request there will be no service. The family will have a Celebration of Life at a later date. In lieu of flowers, those who wish to make a donation in Maryann’s memory may do so to a charity or organization of their choice. Our loving mother, grandmother and friend may no longer be with us, but her love and spirit will remain with us always. Condolences may be sent to the family by visiting www.nunes-pottinger.com.
