governments are expected to sign on to this initiative in the coming weeks. By working together over the last four years, local governments across the Columbia Basin and Boundary areas are estimated to have saved up to $750,000 on energy in their own operations. By buying Kootenay-based offsets together, the local governments will save again while keeping the investment in the region. “The RDKB’s commitment to acting responsibly is clear. We are saving energy, emissions, and money in our operations through actions such as retrofits. We are piloting approaches to save emissions in our communities such as organics diversion,” says RDKB Board Chair Larry Gray, adding, “Becoming carbon neutral is one part of that commitment.” “While it is not realistic for us to completely eliminate fossil fuels from our operations, we can take responsibility for reducing our emissions and keep those investments in the Kootenays,” says RDCK Board Chair John Kettle, referring to the purchase of carbon offsets. “Becoming carbon neutral is an important milestone and reaffirms our collective commitment to take responsibility and to take action on climate change,” says RDEK Board Chair Rob Gay. “Congratulations for the leadership shown by these local governments on working together to take tangible actions on climate change,” says Neil Muth, CBT President and CEO. “We are pleased to support these efforts and applaud the regional districts for their innovative approach to buying Kootenay-based offsets.” Local governments voluntarily signed BC’s Climate Action Charter and have committed to becoming carbon neutral in their operations by 2012. Here in the Columbia Basin, a multiyear effort known as the Carbon Neutral Kootenays (CNK) project is supporting local governments and First Nations that are working towards becoming carbon neutral. CNK is funded jointly by Columbia Basin Trust (CBT) and the Regional Districts of Central Kootenay, East Kootenay and Kootenay Boundary.

Local returns from amputation seminar Submitted Reese Fichten, 7, of Cranbrook, knows that being a multiple amputee is not a barrier to

living a full and active life. Born a multiple amputee, Reese recently returned home from The War Amps 2012 Mul-

or both upper limbs – attended the seminar from across Canada. The War Amps holds regional CHAMP seminars, however, this special national seminar allows in-depth coverage of topics of particular concern to multiple amputees, such as living

independently, learning to drive, assistive devices and, through The War Amps JUMPSTART, the importance of computers for schoolwork now and later success in the workforce. Super Champs also demonstrate their artificial limbs and devices

Auxiliary shines with $30,000 gift for Starlite Submitted

East Kootenay Foundation for Health recently announced that the 5th annual Starlite Campaign for Excellence in Health Care was taking a different glow this year. The foundation and its star sponsor, East Kootenay Community Credit Union, decided to light all 17 stars from November thru to January 31 as a way of saying thanks to donors who supported the digital mammography campaign. Since the initial launch of the Starlite Campaign and every year following that, members of the Kimberley Health Care Auxiliary have joined EKFH by stepping forward to light their own star as their way of thanking their customers who support the KHCA Thrift Shops located in Marysville and Kimber-

ley. “Thanks to the generosity of so many living in our community our Thrift Shops have been extremely successful this year. We are so grateful for that support that our members decided to make two significant donations to health care this holiday season. The first is a $12,000 gift for the Kimberley Special Care Home and the second a $30,000 gift to EKFH for its Starlite Campaign which is to be allocated to area of greatest need,” shares KHCA President Mary Davies. Had the normal star illumination taken place, the Kimberley Health Care Auxiliary would have been responsible for six of the stars shining brightly into the night. Over the time span of the Starlite Campaign the Kimberley Health Care Auxil-

It’s been a few years since Dance With Me Cranbrook’s Gerald Dalum has been teaching dance here in Cranbrook. On January 5th he will be hosting his Grand Opening with his new dance partner Clare Bailey. Gerald is an unlikely candidate for a dance instructor as his background as an outdoorsman and a commercial fisherman is not what one would expect as a background to dance. He says “when he started dancing he got a lot of negative comments from his fishing and hunting partners.” He just told them he couldn’t skate or play hockey so he had to get the girls somehow. “It’s interesting how men see dancing as a threat to their masculinity when in fact I don’t think there is a better way to socialize and meet new people, and the ladies love to dance” he says. “85 people showed up for my first Salsa class a few years ago and over 50 of them were ladies”. It was at a dance workshop where he met his dance partner and soon wife-to-be Clare. Clare has a background as a competitive dancer and has taught dance at the University of Calgary Ballroom Dance Club for some years now. She will soon be a Cranbrook resident. “I always thought that Cranbrook needed more dance opportunities.

The usual complaint is there is little opportunity to dance socially after you’ve taken lessons”, says Gerald. “We

Even with the holiday season right around the corner, my daughter can’t wait for spring to arrive. She is looking forward to the time when “her birdies” come back from their winter hideout down south. The other day, we made a point in looking for those birds that stay behind and she was happy to see there isn’t just crows, but others such as chickadees, woodpeckers and nuthatches. Birds that have stuck around for the cold season are now foraging for food to sustain them. The frozen and snow-covered ground makes it extremely difficult for them to get the enough calories to keep their bodies warm during the cold months. Sunflower seeds and peanuts both have a high fat content and can easily provide the extra calories, and most birds in our area enjoy them. Suet is another good way of ensuring wintering birds get the fat content they need. Commonly sold in the shape of cakes, balls or bells, suet is a mix of fat, bird seed and nuts and can easily be hung almost anywhere. Like other animals, birds also need a good source of water to stay properly hydrated and you can make your yard more attractive by providing a bowl with fresh water near the feeder or put the food close to a constant fresh water source such as open water in a pond. If you put bird feed out in the fall when birds are establishing their winter foraging routes, you will likely have the greatest success in attracting them to your home. You might have less activity if you place feed out later in the year, but likely you will still get some visitors, especially if you consistently provide high-quality food. Chickadees are the most commonly recognized birds and can easily be identified by their call. Many people have heard their "chicka-dee-dee-dee" being called from the trees. Chickadees prefers wooded areas, but they are also quite content in backyard hedges and birdhouses that can protect them from the elements. They enjoy a diet of black oil sunflower seed and are voracious eaters of insects – a very good reason to keep them around your yard and garden. Woodpeckers frequent a wide variety of habitats and their nests are commonly situated in deciduous trees including aspen, birch, and maples. A woodpecker’s diet includes fruit, nuts, corn, ants, tent caterpillars, grasshoppers and many kinds of flying insects. They change their diets according to what food sources are most abundant and forage in the air, on the ground, and in trees. They often poke into crevices and chips at the bark of trees, searching for insects, but not “eating” wood. The favourite winter foods of the nuthatch are black oil sunflower, suet, sunflower chips and skinless peanuts. In summer, their diet consists mainly of insects, including caterpillars, ants, and pest species such as pine weevils, oystershell and other scale insects. During the cold months, nuthatches will often forage together with other birds in a group known as a foraging guild. They will occasionally feed on the ground, and readily visits feeding stations. Nuthatches are distinctive when seeking food, because they are able to descend tree trunks head-first and can hang upside-down beneath twigs and branches. The best feeder to hang out for nuthatches, chickadees and woodpeckers is a tube style feeder, with big enough ports for the preferred variety of seed, or a screened-sided tube feeder – which works great for peanuts and mixed nuts as well as sunflower seeds. The upside-down suet feeders are also a great choice for all three. Each year around Christmas, bird watchers across North America, Latin America and the Caribbean take an informal head-count of the birds in their neighbourhood in the Christmas Bird Count. This year, the dates for the count are December 17 in Fernie, December 27 in the Creston Valley, December 29 in Cranbrook and January 5 in Kimberley. For more information on the individual counts, you can go to the website of the British Columbia Field Ornithologists at Till next time… happy birding Submitted by Kerstin

Ralph Sultan spent three days getting to know the seniors of the East Kootenay, visiting Cranbrook, Jaffray, Fernie, Sparwood, Elkford, Kimberley and Invermere. He helped serve turkey dinner to over 300 seniors at the Annual Rotary Seniors Christmas Dinner, and met with the Elders of the Ktunaxa Nation. Premier Clark appointed Minister Sultan, himself a senior at 79 years old, to be the voice for seniors at the cabinet table. The Minister is touring the province listening to the important issues that are on the minds of BC seniors to better inform government on how best to support this ever-growing segment of our population. Minister Sultan described the 3 pillars of his ministry: Better at Home, supporting seniors living longer in their own homes; Seniors helping Senior’s; and Plan with Seniors, not for Seniors. If you didn’t get a chance to meet Minister Sultan during his visit and you wish to express your ideas, contact my office and we’ll get your message to Ralph.

(From left) EKFH Executive Director Donna Grainger is joined by EKRH Diagnostic Imaging representatives Anthea Gill (Professional Practice Leader, DI) and Jan Race (Mammography Technician) to celebrate the arrival of $50,000 from the Mr. & Mrs. P. A. Woodward’s Foundation donation for the A Clear View Campaign. Submitted The East Kootenay Foundation for Health continues to bring its historical A Clear View ~ digital mammography campaign to a close. One of the key components of the campaign was funding from other charitable foundations, many of whom rose to the occasion. One such organization is the Mr. & Mrs. P. A. Woodward’s Foundation who generously donated $50,000 to bring the best in digital stereotactic imaging to the East Kootenay Regional Hospital. With the holiday season upon us, it seems so appropriate that one of the four sons of Mr. Charles Woodward, the founder of Woodward’s stores in BC and Alberta, to have this major gift of $50,000 arrive at EKFH. Charles son, P. A. Woodward maintained an interest and involvement in the family business throughout his life. During the latter

part of their lives, Mr. and Mrs. P. A. Woodward showed interest in helping charitable organizations, generously donating to many. Apart from the many personal gifts which Mr. and Mrs. Woodward made to charitable organizations during their lifetime, the Woodward Foundation was incorporated by Mr. Woodward in 1951 “to undertake and carry out such charitable objectives as the Board of Directors may decide for the relief of poverty, the advancement of religion, or for other purposes beneficial to one or more communities in the province.” In 1953, the Foundation’s name was changed to the “Mr. and Mrs. P.A. Woodward’s Foundation” and a priority was established to assist in projects which would contribute to better health care for British Columbians. The value of the assets of the Foundation represent an accumulation of life-

time gifts to the Foundation from the late Mr. and Mrs. Woodward, together with the residue from their estates following the death of Mr. Woodward in 1968 and Mrs. Woodward two years later. Over the years, in accordance with Mr. and Mrs. P.A. Woodward’s directions, the Foundation’s Board has concentrated its attention on projects in the health field. The Foundation supports those projects which primarily affect the people of the Province of British Columbia where there is clear indication of the health benefit anticipated. This is the second leadership gift that the Mr. & Mrs. P. A. Woodward’s Foundation has graced the East Kootenay Foundation for Health with. In 2006, the Woodward’s Foundation provided $75,000 in funding to EKFH to purchase a portable ophthalmology microscope for the East Kootenay Regional

Hospital. “I don’t think many people realize how many charitable foundations work together on various projects. Christine Alexander, Secretary/Treasurer of the Mr. & Mrs. P. A. Woodward’s Foundation has been invaluable in linking up the requests from EKFH to their Board of Directors while ensuring that the mission and mandate of both of our organizations line up,” explains Donna Grainger, EKFH Executive Director. It may be decades since Mr. Charles Woodward opened his first retail store but it is through the legacy of his son and his wife and their desire to think of others that truly is the beauty of the story. Thank you to the Mr. & Mrs. P. A. Woodward’s Foundation for being a part of the picture and for making history in completing the A Clear View campaign thirteen months ahead of schedule.

Speed a factor in recent accident Submitted

Police were called to a single vehicle collision just before 7 a.m., Dec 7. The crash took place on hwy 93/95 approximately 8 km north of the Premier Lake turnoff. Three subjects were taken to East Koo-

tenay Regional Hospital with non life threatening injuries. The road were very slippery at the time, but speed is a factor. The driver attempted to pass a loaded logging truck and lost control. The vehicle went off road left and down a steep

embankment. Sanding was in progress at the time. Police, ambulance and Fire Rescue from Canal Flats attended. Two subjects were pinned in the vehicle and the Jaws of Life were used to free them. Charges are being

considered. Police would like to remind motorists to drive for the conditions. Please do not take unnecessary risks. Your family will appreciate you getting home safely.

When most people think about the holidays, family festivities and good cheer likely come to mind. What few of us consider is that the holidays also present an increased risk of home fires. Home fires during the holiday season often involve cooking, Christmas trees, candles and holiday decorations. By taking some preventative steps and following simple rules of thumb, most home fires can be prevented during the holidays and beyond. For many great fire safety tips around Christmas trees, candles and holiday cooking, please visit our website. Have a fire safe and happy holiday season!

Sternig is enrolled in University Transfer courses at College of the Rockies in hopes of working toward a Bachelor of Arts degree and eventually becoming a psychologist.

A woodpecker’s diet includes fruit, nuts, corn, ants, tent caterpillars, grasshoppers and many kinds of flying insects. They change their diets according to what food sources are most abundant and forage in the air, on the ground, and in trees. They often poke into crevices and chips at the bark of trees, searching for insects, but not “eating” wood. The favourite winter foods of the nuthatch are black oil sunflower, suet, sunflower chips and skinless peanuts. In summer, their diet consists mainly of insects, including caterpillars, ants, and pest species such as pine weevils, oystershell and other scale insects. During the cold months, nuthatches will often forage together with other birds in a group known as a foraging guild. They will occasionally feed on the ground, and readily visits feeding stations. Nuthatches are distinctive when seeking food, because they are able to descend tree trunks head-first and can hang upside-down beneath twigs and branches. The best feeder to hang out for nuthatches, chickadees and woodpeckers is a tube style feeder, with big enough ports for the preferred variety of seed, or a screened-sided tube feeder – which works great for peanuts and mixed nuts as well as sunflower seeds. The upside-down suet feeders are also a great choice for all three. Each year around Christmas, bird watchers across North America, Latin America and the Caribbean take an informal head-count of the birds in their neighbourhood in the Christmas Bird Count. This year, the dates for the count are December 17 in Fernie, December 27 in the Creston Valley, December 29 in Cranbrook and January 5 in Kimberley. For more information on the individual counts, you can go to the website of the British Columbia Field Ornithologists at For your holiday Till nextall time… happy birding Submitted by Kerstin

Whether you follow table etiquette to the letter or prefer to welcome your guests in a more casual manner, the key to low-stress entertaining is organization. If you want to be able to sit down with your guests instead of panicking in the kitchen, you need to do some advance planning and preparation. First of all, come up with a menu and ensure that you have all the ingredients on hand; the day of your dinner party is not the time to start running to the grocery store. Make a list of your tasks — housecleaning, food preparation, decorating — and break them down into steps, some of which can be completed in advance. Jot a step-by-step plan down on your calendar according to the time you have at your disposal and the priority of the task. Putting up the Christmas tree and decorations can be done several days in advance, even if it seems a bit early to you. That will leave you with one less thing to worry about as the party approaches. Get bigger cleaning jobs out of the way ahead of time, too. You can then do a last-minute touch up the day of the party. Partially or completely prepare all the dishes at least one or two days before your dinner party. If you can, cook and freeze what you can for reheating just before serving. Many dishes can go in the freezer without losing flavour or consistency. Just remember, the more you do in advance, the more relaxed and in-control you’ll feel as you prepare to greet your guests!
