For those about to shiver... TIMOTHY SCHAFER West Kootenay Advertiser

Chris Buckley has a recipe for a great New Year’s dip: Take a plunge into the nearfreezing waters of the Columbia River. With less than two weeks to work up the courage, Buckley, a corporal with the 44th Engineer Squadron, has extended an icy invitation for those who are in need of an eye opening event for New Year’s Day with the annual polar bear swim. Nearly 150 people showed up last year for a dip, said Buckley, with almost 500 on the shore huddled near the fire. The water will be above freezing, he said, with temperatures expected to be around six degrees C. The dip started 26 years ago when seven members of the 44 Engineer Squadron decided to jump into the river. They kept up the tradition and word of mouth spread while friends and relatives began showing up. It turned into an annual event, organized by Master Warrant Officer Sharman Thomas until

Proudly putting new smiles on faces every day

More than 150 people took the icy plunge at Trail’s Gyro Park on New Year’s Day 2012. Organizers are planning for an even bigger turnout for the 2013 dip.

two years ago when Buckley took over. The community event invites all ages to dive in, although Buckley guarantees there’s no pressure. “No one’s going to be there to throw you in or anything—if you just want to go up to your ankles, that’s fine too,” he said. Emergency service workers will be on site, just in case, and the fire department will have its rescue boat in the river. The 26th annual

Greater Trail Polar Bear Swim occurs on New Year’s Day at Gyro Park, mandatory registration beginning at 10:15 a.m. until 11:50 a.m. that day. The swim itself begins with a bang at 12 p.m. sharp. After the swim, hot chocolate and a bonfire will await participants along with a pile of prizes to be drawn. Costumes are optional but bathing suits are mandatory.

Footwear and extra warm clothing are advised. Contact Buckley at christopher.buckley2@forces.gc.ca to register or for more information.

News

Wildfires and wildlife... each a cause of concern in Greater Trail area Trail news

A new provincial cost sharing formula for reducing the threat of wildfires has not sparked the interest of the regional district. Larry Gray, chair of the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) board of directors, said the new program does address some funding concerns, but it does not go far enough to deal with the major issue facing governments like the RDKB. Gray said the formula contains no provision for wildfire mitigation on private property and managed forest lands. “And many of our communities are surrounded, almost exclusively, by privately held lands,” he said. The new cost-sharing formula for operational fuel reduction treatments means the province will pay 90 per cent of the project cost, with an annual cap of $400,000 for municipalities and an annual cap of $600,000 for regional districts. The remaining 10 per cent of costs can be an in-kind contribution (e.g. staff time) or a cash payment from the municipality or regional district making the application. Previously, the initiative provided 90 per cent of the project funding up to $100,000 and 75 per cent of the remaining cost, up to a maximum of $400,000 per year. Gray was also adamant the regional district taxpayers should not have to pay any of the 10 per cent of the costs for mitigation on Crown land. “We have some concern about that, that the property really belongs to the government,” he said. “Should the taxpayers be paying money to

do the mitigation on Crown lands when they are really owned by the provincial government?” Game scarce

Season’s best from the captain and crew Greg Nesteroff West Kootenay Advertiser

Part of an ongoing look at local items trading on eBay. In the late 19th and early 20th centuries, local sternwheelers issued lithographed Christmas and New Year’s cards, usually with a picture of the boat, list of the crew, and sometimes a poem. Today they’re highly coveted by collectors. A few have sold online in recent years, most recently one this month from the SS Kootenay, dating to 1897, that drew eight bids and went for $162.50 US. The front bears the CPR’s checkered flag and says “Wishing you a merry Christmas and a prosperous new year” in brown lettering. The inside says “With the compliments of the cap-

Stick curling arrives in Castlegar BARB SINCLAIR WKA Contributor

1.877.364.2333 LOCAL 250.364.2333

It’s a new way of curling - a new way of being able to get involved. Friday morning, December 7, was the first ever Stick Curling mini spiel in Castlegar. It is a more inclusive way to curl that is hitting rinks across the nation. Although it’s been going on in Ontario for a while, like everything else, it takes a while for new ways of doing things to catch on. Bob Maloff, manager of the Castlegar Curling Club, pointed out the stick curling expert, and longtime curler, Alex Bojey, who is wellversed in the rules. “First of all,” says Bojey, “there’re only two players on a team of stick curling, and it’s very popular right through Canada – in fact, there’s a bonspiel, The Canadian Open Stick Curling in Ontario next April 13th, 2013.” Continues Bojey, “Anybody can join in – it’s quite different from the regular game. “In a regular game you have four players and they all throw two rocks. In this game you only have two players, one at each end; like, ‘the team’ is only two people…and they play against another

couple. “And instead of throwing two rocks like a regular game, they throw (or push) six rocks and the game lasts six ends. Nobody walks back and forth (between the ends, as in regular curling). The only thing going back and forth is the rock. Also, the game is much faster, but you score the same way.” And, importantly, it’s a much safer way of curling, especially with older people. But, if anyone, young or experienced, has had hip or knee or foot trouble, this is an ex- Stick-curling authority Alex Bojey at the Castlegar Curling Club on Dec. 7. cellent way to Barb Sinclair photo go.

A full and festive playbill is played out at Joe Hill Coffeehouse Arne Petryshen West Kootenay Advertiser

Rossland was in full Christmas cheer last Sunday night, from the brightly lit downtown where snow has been falling, to the ski hill where happy skiers are meeting one powder day after another. Down the road at the entrance of town, residents were becoming even merrier as the monthly Joe Hill Coffeehouse took on a Christmas aspect, with acts

ranging from guitar and percussion, to full choir numbers. Attendance looked to be the best so far in this season for the coffeehouse which started up again in the fall. The monthly show features a variety of acts, and part of the fun in going is not knowing which local band or act might show up last minute or what a newcomer might bring to the performance. Les Carter, who is

The Foggy Goggle Boys at Rossland’s Miners Hall.

organizing the show, said earlier that they had been gearing up for a special show, and it was. It began with the Rossland Glee Club

proved. Next up was the Foggy Goggle Boys, with some guitar, mandolin and vocals. Then Paul Bowles read poetry which

related to things like 2012 and his encounter with a bear near Warfield. Bowles followed each poem with some rhythm playing. Dawn Graham sang some Christmasinspired selections, the last of which received a standing ovation. The night finished off on a lighter note as Wendy Garby on vocals, Carter on guitar and Andrew Bennett on fiddle played a few Christmas songs.

Carter said the coffeehouse is a great venue. “Musicians who would otherwise be cynical about things like playing at a bar, (enjoy) playing at Joe Hill because the audience is appreciative and listens,” he said. “A lot of the audience are musicians. It’s a nice place to play, has great sound.” The Joe Hill Coffeehouse is the third Sunday of each month at the Miners’ Hall in Rossland.

Events are already moving into position on the carnival’s new website, www.rosslandwintercarnival. com. This year is the 116th anniversary of the first carnival, first held in Rossland back in 1897. Organizer Lisa Wegner said this year will also be special because of the downtown revitalization, which will make more room for both the spectators and participants of events like the Winter Carnival parade.

KEEP YOUR PETS SAFE THIS HOLIDAY SEASON The holidays are a time for festive decorations and special treats, but some of these seasonal items can be hazardous for your pets. Here are some tips to keep your pet safe and happy this holiday season: No Bones Please: Avoid giving bones to your dogs or cats, particularly turkey bones. Poultry bones easily splinter and can cause serious injury, while bone fragments can cause intestinal blockages or lacerations;   Healthy Treats: Chocolate and other sweets should not be given to animals. Chocolate contains theobromine, a chemical that can be deadly to cats and dogs, though not harmful to humans. The best thing you can do for your pets over the holidays is to keep them on their regular diet. Look for special animal treats instead of giving your animals cookies or sweets meant for people;   Poisonous Plants: Many popular holiday plants are poisonous to animals including mistletoe, holly, ornamental pepper and Christmas rose. Remember to keep these plants out of reach of pets - especially birds. Poinsettias are not poisonous to pets or people. This has been a long-standing rumour perpetuated for decades. Having said this, some pets, that have a sensitivity to the latex contained in the plant, may get diarrhea or even vomit if they consume parts of a poinsettia;    Avoid Tinsel: If you have a Christmas tree and pets, you have a recipe for trouble. First, make sure the tree is well secured. Try to place decorations above paw height and use string to hang the bulbs instead of hooks, which are easily dislodged. If possible, use nonbreakable ornaments. Avoid using tinsel or angel hair. Cats and dogs will ingest both, which can cause intestinal problems. Cords for lights should be made inaccessible to pets - especially from chewing puppies and exploring kittens. Keep in mind that the chemicals added to the water reservoir of your Christmas tree to keep your tree living longer won’t do the same for your pet. The chemicals are toxic to animals, so keep the reservoir covered;   Choking Hazards in Toys: Avoid purchasing pet toys with small or soft pieces that can be chewed and swallowed. Nylon bones tend to splinter less than plastic ones. Be sure to inspect pet toys regularly and discard deteriorating ones.

Horoscope Michael O’Connor

for the

Week

December 21, 2012

Tip of the Week: Happy Solstice, the most celebrated one ever! A new round of the 5125 Year Long Count Calendar begins, and this is the 1st of 5…. Is it any wonder why the Classical Mayan Astronomer/ Astrologers Priests, the venerated ‘Keepers of Time’ considered this the ‘most significant event in human history’? That this ‘Great Cycle’ begins and ends with Winter solstice is due to the deep respect given to the cycle of the Sun. Though it plays the role of the ‘seconds hand on the clock’, its quality far outweighs its quantity as a measurement of time. Hardly a mere object in the sky, the Sun may best be understood as the nucleus, the brain center, of the ‘galactic cell’ of the solar system. With the Helio Pause and Bow Shock literally forming the skin membrane of the solar system, this is more than a metaphor. From this perspective, we actually live in the expanded body of the sun! This holistic perception of reality reveals wholes within ever greater wholes. From cells to bodies to families, communities, regions, towns, cities, provinces states, countries, continents, planets, solar systems, galaxies, and the universe itself, each level is whole within ever greater wholes. This holistic world view reveals a self-evident order and intelligent design woven into the very fabric of existence. In this regard, we recognize ourselves, humanity, our planet and all the species upon it to be significant ‘parts of’ life. This re-wakened realization frees us from the purely linear, materialistic model that sees us as ‘apart from’ life, and therefore separate and vulnerable. The deepest reaches of science have worked hard to prove the timeless postulations of mystics - that division and separation are ultimately illusions of empirical perception. Rejoice, a great new cycle has begun and a new yet ancient world view is born anew. What a wonderful Gift. P.S. Merry Christmas!

The time has come for the rock to roll. Okay, bad pun but it serves to illustrate the verb in your vibe. Change is upon you whether you would have it or not! The good news is that, as said you are on a roll. It is time to graduate, to advance to the next level. There is no turning back. Get excited, get creative and get going!

Some cycles are bigger, deeper, more intense and or involved and passionate than others, like the current one. A steady deepening of commitments with a long-term focus on the future is featured. Yet rather than feel contracted, you feel expansive, exuberant and willing. Yes, the work load is heavier than it used to be but you are okay with that. Go figure!

While the focus remains on health and strengthening your overall constitution and/or fortifying your base continues, you want to get out, to play. Meeting new people is in the mix. Experiencing the unexpected with people has been a standing theme for a while and you are ready for a change that way. Expect to take new leads this week.

Oh to be free of fear and worry. It sounds easy, so why isn’t it? Too much thinking is the classic issue. Some would say excess lower mind, that of the ego. Worry can be interpreted as caring, but it actually does not help much, if at all. Practicing being present in the moment with ‘what is’, is the classic solution. Genuine gratitude for life helps and meditation is the real deal.

Your world is opening up in new and exciting ways. With the crack in the door and the light coming in you are wise to do what it takes to swing it wide open. Laying claim to latent gifts and talents meanwhile, is stirring at deeper levels. These require vision and courage. If you are having trouble seeing this light, seek counsel and do it now!

A dynamic learning curve continues and the lessons are coming from all angles, some unexpected. The time is right to flirt with new possibilities. The tried and true, at least in some areas, is beginning to lie. Since two wrongs don’t equal right, your best option is to redirect your focus towards more truthful, stable and reliable sources.

It is said that the karmic lords never sleep and they never forget. Life knows who we are, what is owed to us and what we owe. Graceful acceptance of the dues and penalties as well as the rewards is a sign of true wisdom. Reaction, blame and self-pity only serve to deepen the suffering. Fortunately, the light of a new day is steadily growing.

A pioneering mood is lingering. You have been seeking new answers, insights and leads. Now you may have to contend with deciphering which ones are the best. The likely answer is: those that stand to reach furthest into the future. The best choices usually involve a tight weave between health and a genuine sense of service, which is truly a privilege to render.

You are in the mood to enter new territory. Yet, you may feel both called within and without. To reconcile this conflict consider the famous lyrics, ‘you gotta get in to get out’. Listening to your inner voice and heeding its urgings is the ageless wisdom. Be extra careful of excessive logic now. To trust your feelings, acknowledge them and feel your silent truth.

The returns for many of your past efforts are rolling in now. Hopefully they are the kind you want. You may feel the need for some time out to manage the flow effectively. Be deliberate and concise with your communications, unless the exchange is deep, sincere and valuable. Your ability to make fine distinctions now is at a peak, make the most of it.

You are in the mood to cut loose, get away, break free. A creative diversion might help. Yet, you may feel duty bound and restricted. How can you take good care of yourself in this stressful cycle? Patience is one way. The coming New Moon cycle will bring some needed relief. That is in one week. Accept this time as one of building character.

Getting the attention you feel you want and deserve is a current focus. A learning curve is implied. Perhaps you need to increase your social media skills or learn how to ask for a raise. Either way, it is important that you be pro-active and give to the situation. Your confidence levels should be rising steadily these days so ride that wave!
