Patience recommended in coping with snow CRAIG LINDSAY Castlegar News Reporter

CASTLEGAR NEWS

Despite unpredictable weather patterns including a huge dump of snow recently, Castlegar city crews have kept the streets mostly clear. “I can tell you it’s unbelievable the amount of work they’ve done in a short amount of time,” said Castle-

gar mayor Lawrence Chernoff. “I have to give kudos to our crew out there. They’re just pounding away hour after hour. We haven’t received that many complaints. Just a few about when we would get there to get things done. I tell you these guys need a huge pat on the back. They kept it up over that week we got that

huge snowfall, where it was just night after night. I think people need to be happy with what took place in the community.” Chernoff said crews worked at full capacity during the big snowfall on Dec. 19. “We had every piece of equipment that was available, and every person that was available (work-

ing),” he said. “We maxed out the hours. They did a great job under the watchful eye of Garry (Sauer, assistant director) and Chris (Barlow, director of Transportation and Civic Works). It’s a lot of work. People call in and say, ‘hey, you haven’t got to me yet.’ ‘Well, we’ll get to you as soon as we can.’ If people follow the

priority map they’ll know we’re following it very carefully.” The hospital and schools and main access roads are the top priorities, says Chernoff. The mayor says people need to be patient with Emcon Services which does the plowing around the city. “People measure how they get to the

streets of Castlegar with what Emcon does,” he said. “That’s not really fair. The amount they have to cover and we have to cover in the community is (not really comparable). It’s not really a fair measure. When you look at it, they have a huge area to cover and that gets difficult with that amount of snow.”

City officials upbeat about budget issues Craig Lindsay Castlegar News Reporter

Machinery sure doesn’t hurt Dale and Patricia Salchenberger of Columbia Avenue in Kinnaird are no strangers to getting out and pushing some snow around when the need presents itself.

Business operators civil in meeting Craig Lindsay Castlegar News Reporter

Perhaps it was the Christmas spirit, but it looks like battling downtown neighbours Florio Vassilakakis and Basil McLaren have agreed to meet to discuss their situation. Element Club Bar and Grill owner Florio Vassilakakis and

West’s Department Store owners Basil and Susan McLaren were all on hand at a joint meeting between the Planning and Development and Public Safety committees at Castlegar City Hall on Dec. 20. Also at the meeting were mayor Lawrence Chernoff, councilors Kevin Chernoff and Dan Rye, and representatives from the city of Castlegar, RCMP and Liquor Control Board. At the Dec. 3 council meeting, the McLarens appeared in front of council after receiving a notification from the city that the boarded

up windows at West’s Department Store on 3rd avenue would have to be replaced or they would face stiff penalties. “We had a good discussion held by everybody at the table,” said Rye. “At the end of the meeting, there was an agreement between Florio and Mr. McLaren to have further discussions. Hopefully, they can get back to us so we can make a report to council on Jan. 17.” Rye says the meeting between the two business owners will strictly be between them.

“Just the fact that everyone is going to sit down and talk is a good thing,” he said. “I thought it was like the NHL talks, at least if they’re talking it’s a good thing. When no one is talking, it’s not good. So, yeah, everyone sat there and voiced their concerns, listened to what everyone had to say. They (Vassilakakis and McLaren) decided that they would carry on the conversation (privately) and hopefully get back to us so we could make a report for the next council meeting (Jan. 17).”

Although it’s still months away, Castlegar city council is in good shape in regard to next year’s budget. “The budget has to balance every year,” said councillor Russ Hearne, chair of the Finance and Corporate Services committee. “We’re required by law to balance. I assure you it will balance. We’re early on. We don’t actually have to have our budget in to the province until May. We’re usually very proactive. We have it laid out so by March 1 the budget will have passed all its readings.” Hearne says the city budget is one of the major topics discussed at the annual council retreat in January. “What we’ll do is go to the retreat and talk about what we think of the budget and then we’ll submit it to the public and see what they think,” he said.

“Last year the public gave us some good ideas that we didn’t think of. So we altered

Coun. Russ Hearn File photo

the budget for that.” Castlegar mayor Lawrence Chernoff says the budget process is one that takes time but is very important. “We’re getting there,” he said. “It’s a slow process. We have our annual budget meeting Jan. 11 or around there. It’s a matter of rounding it out with staff giving us more information. It’s still in the early stages. We’re looking at what we need to do and what the priorities will be.” Chernoff says it’s

important to not just look at the near future but also into 2014 and 2015. “We see infrastructure playing another big role in this year’s budget,” he said. “The development of the airport lands is huge. We’re just building away. The Westjet decision is another thing we are waiting to hear from. We should hear in January. That should help things. That’ll be a huge economic benefit to the Kootenays. I’m not going to say ‘if ’, I’m going to say ‘when’.” The mayor is upbeat about the City’s fiscal health. “We’re on target for last year’s budget,” he said. “We got a little wonky on the snow but I think that’s still on line because the months before that we didn’t have much snow. But I think generally the budget is shaping up well. We’re looking for another good year in 2013 and 2014.”

Lender set to make amends staff With files from the Trail Times

West Kootenay residents overcharged for payday loans from The Cash Store, and/ or Instaloan are eligible for refunds estimated at a total of approximately $1 million. In March, 2012, Consumer Protection B.C. ordered the par-

ent company, Cash Store Financial Inc., to stop charging illegal fees and repay customers who were overcharged. As a result of a Supplemental Compliance Order issued on Nov. 30, the refund process was scheduled to begin for local area residents on Tuesday. The ruling applies

to anyone who used the Cash Store in Trail or Instaloan in Castlegar and Nelson. Consumer Protection BC will ensure that Cash Store Financial provides all eligible consumers with complete and accurate refunds, said Manjit Bains, Consumer Protection BC’s corporate relations vice president.

When making resolutions look at risks and rewards Carla’s Call

As 2013 begins many people are setting resolutions for change in some direction. We may want to give up something: smoking, unhealthy eating, or compulsive spending, for example. We may want to get something: a healthy body, a better relationship with our child, a degree, a fulfilling job. Whatever we want to let go, or gain, here are some things to think about. After the excitement of change subsides, we will encounter a variety of excuses our mind designs to put us back into our comfort zone. “But just one is not so bad… it’s too hard to stop… but I actually like [what I’m giving up].” Is it the same excuse you allowed to stop you from change 20 years ago? Before you let excuses sabotage your efforts, try this. Realize that you have developed patterns and habits over long periods of time that can take time to undo and will take mental and physical work. If there is something you are doing that you want to stop, you need to recognize that you are getting something from it, some benefit, or reward. Sometimes we are drawn back to those perceived rewards. When that story full of excuses and sabotage starts to play, sit down with a pen and paper and do a cost-benefit analysis of the short-term versus long-term benefits for continuing

Carla Marshall

and discontinuing the behaviour. Assume for a moment that you continue the behaviour you want to stop (unhealthy eating, drinking, gambling, smoking, compulsive spending, drugs, you fill in the blank). Write down the positive effects you will experience in one to two minutes after the activity (“I’ll get a rush… I’ll feel relaxed… relief… joy… excitement). Then ask, “what will the positive effects be in two hours if I continue [specific behaviour]? What will the positive effects be in 24 hours? Two days? Two years? Twenty years?” Write the answers down. Now do exactly the same for the negative effects of continuing the behaviour. What will the risks and drawbacks be in the next two minutes, two hours, and so on? Do the same analysis for the effects of deciding not to continue the behaviour. Ask yourself, “assuming I decide not

to engage in [fill in behaviour] what are the positive effects I will experience in the various time frames? Do the same now for the negative effects of discontinuing the behaviour. What you have created is a rational breakdown of your decision to stop the unwanted behaviour, and one that empowers you to change because it comes from you. When you recognize that the costs of continuing far outweigh the benefits, you can now go about setting up all the other parts of the support network you need for the new life you are creating. You are free to be the best and most desirable you. At the same time, it’s important to spend time visualizing what kind of life you do want. Rather than thinking of just letting go, spend your energy on what you want to achieve in the important areas of your life: family/ relationships, health, prosperity, vocation, spirituality, leisure, and personal development. With your intention set, tools and support to overcome potential roadblocks, you are more equipped to manage the change. -Marshall & Associates provides human resources plus individual and group development services.

Community

Extending a helping hand JIM SINCLAIR Castlegar News Editor

Sandi McCreight was most likely not alone when quite some time ago she noticed a void in the level of local social services for senior citizens. So, with some significant backing from the Columbia Basin Trust the local advocate has instigated a six-month pilot project geared toward the greater well-being of our senior relatives, friends and neighbours.

“Even five minutes on the phone with a virtual stranger is a contact when you know they genuinely care.” Sandi McCreight

Sandi is sending out an S.O.S. (Seniors Outreach & Support). The program has just begun and will continue beyond June if the stats show it’s been effective. “I spent the month of December getting things ready,” described McCreight on Jan. 2 from her office within the Community Response Network headquarters on 2nd Street, “getting some resources in, making contacts.” A good number of service providers and groups in the area will have had a heads up in regard to the new service. “Years ago here at Castlegar Community Services there was a program called

Seniors’ Counsellors,” related McCreight. “They did a fantastic job of meeting with seniors. They called themselves counsellors, but what they really did was help with a lot of important things like completing forms, applying for benefits.” The program wound down due to a lack of volunteers. “It’s been a good couple of years that there hasn’t been a service like this around.,” said McCreight. “When you compare us to, say, Nelson, they have, for a senior woman, I think five different things (programs).” The basic premise of the S.O.S. program is to make seniors and those who know them aware the project has begun. If you, or someone you know could use some help with something, or even a caring phone call… keep Sandi’s phone number handy: 250365-2104 ext. 34. Sandi will initially have help from a practicum student,

and as time goes on there will be volunteers chipping in as well. The plan is to leave no one left to fend for themselves, and allowed to get lonely and frustrated. No one is trying to pry or be nosy, but sometimes folks could use a call, an invitation to take advantage of an overture of compassion. “I’m also working with a local church group, trying to get them on board,” Sandi continued. “They want to do something to serve the community so we’re going to discuss them doing the ‘friends calling friends’ program, where we would call seniors who are potentially isolated and lonely, just to do a check up on them.” This is where the community at large may become involved in the project. Suppose you know of someone you may not necessarily be close to, maybe someone in your neighbourhood. Does it seem like they get a shortage of com-

pany? Would they possibly appreciate someone asking how they’re doing? Those are the people Sandi McCreight wants to hear about. If they prefer to be left alone their wishes are respected. There is a fair amount of slack that can and should be picked up in terms of community members watching out for one another, as McCreight elaborates, “I think it’s something that’s really important – the more that health care and services are cut back, the more we see seniors (suffer), especially in the winter when we’re so isolated. “If you can’t get a ride to go to an appointment or on an outing to do social things, that loneliness compounds and can cause health problems and all sorts of things. “Even five minutes on the phone with a virtual stranger is a contact when you know they’re calling because they genuinely care.”

Fee hikes: par for the course

As the cartoon at right so starkly and accurately suggests, we’re being milked, literally, for just about all we’re worth and there seems to be no better time to get primed then the brand new year. It’s nothing new for costs to go up. What doesn’t cost more now than it used to, other than maybe... asbestos? To this point in time, at least, our society has proven to be a bottomless pit – when prices go up we pay more. There will be grumbling and foot dragging, but for the most part we’ll cough up. It’s too bad the hikes have to come all at once. It’s also too bad the average citizen can’t adjust their income accordingly. Making sure they don’t let greed get in the way, the taxpayer could just keep things in line, making sure the necessities got looked after. Only problem is – that side of the equation, in all-too-many instances is non-negotiable. Can you think of a line of work that pays the same, or less than it did 20 years ago? There is some consolation in knowing that a lot of these hikes we’re looking at are for worthwhile services, in theory, at least. There’s another consolation in knowing that if we do eventually put down our collective foot and protest the spiralling fees for membership in a modern society, we’ll most likely do it without throwing rocks at police and setting fire to cars.

We want to hear from you.

Spots in Time - Gord Turner

That was then, this is now You might not recognize these phrases as the title of a novel. However that may be, these words describe the past and open up the future. In 2012 past, many wonderful events happened in Castlegar, and some of them had national significance. For example, Castlegar was named a five-bloom city in the “Cities in Bloom” competition. That was followed by Castlegar being named as the national “Cities in Bloom” champion in its category. Often as well during these competitions, cities are singled out for outstanding features or events. One year I remember the Doukhobor Discovery Centre being listed by the judges. In 2012 past, the judges gave a special citation to Castlegar for its Sculpture walk display. Always on the watch for special attractions, the judges obviously recognized the prominence of Sculpture walk. In 2012 past, Castlegar experienced two major rainstorms that old-timers cannot remember the equal of. It had been a rainy summer earlier, so much so that Castlegar postponed its Canada Day celebrations. Then on July 14 the black sky dumped millions of gallons of water on our valley, and a huge wind storm knocked over large evergreen trees. Basements were flooded and river banks eroded. Craig Lindsay Reporter

Jim Sinclair Editor

Just as people cleaned that up, an even-larger storm hit on July 17th and saturated Castlegar. Basements that had flooded were flooded again. River banks crumbled and took lawns and gardens with them. In some cases, houses were on the brink of being lost. But in 2012 past, we got past that due to ingenuity, insurance, and the city’s marvelous work crews. Castlegarians showed they are really a resilient group of people. In 2012 past, Selkirk College had several tributes come its way. The biggest, however, was former Selkirk College English and Creative Writing instructor, Fred Wah, being named the Poet Laureate for Canada. The author of a number of books and a winner of the Governor-General’s award for poetry in 1987, Wah returned to be part of Selkirk College’s graduation in April. At that ceremony, he was declared a Selkirk College “Distinguished Educator.” In 2012 past, the City of Castlegar, operators of the West Kootenay Regional Airport, made its pitch to WestJet to be considered in WestJet’s future expansion plans. The city set funds aside to design a radar-oriented flight pattern into Castlegar if WestJet chose Castlegar. WestJet’s planes are equipped with instruments that make it possible to use this type of flight patChris Hopkyns Publisher

tern, and thus arrive when cloud levels are lower. In 2012 past, Castlegarians held their breaths and fervently hoped for a positive outcome to this venture. They are still waiting as Westjet will make its decisions known in 2013 future. A WestJet “yes” would be a big boost to Castlegar in 2013 future. Residents have been speaking angrily and satirically about “Cancelgar” for years. They forget that at least they have an airport due to the foresight of our pioneers in the late 1940s and 50s. An airport is better than no airport at all. But, let’s face it, WestJet would be a welcome addition. A 2013 future item of more immediate significance will occur when Fortis consolidates its West Kootenay operations in Castlegar at the old Ootischenia school site. That will bring major construction to the community, add over a hundred ongoing jobs, and increase the City’s tax base. In regard to yours truly, your biweekly columnist, June 30 in 2012 past was his date of retirement from instructing at Selkirk College, and he has enjoyed this new section of his life. In 2013 future, he plans to travel more—and more. Happy New Year! May all your futures be dazzling.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

Snowed over

Cool, quick action saluted

Hello ICBC, what are you going to do about demanding the roads be cleaned up within a reasonable amount of time so our rates can quit going up from preventable accidents? I know we had a lot of snow dumped on us but why weren’t the city and Emcon crews ready? I am sure there were a lot of accidents and emergency vehicles not able to get around to get to the people. I live on the major road leading to the dump, with large trucks continuously going by, but the grader made just one swipe down the road. The vehicles have to stop so other vehicles can pass as the road had not been plowed for more than two days. The side streets were worse as no plow had been down them. I know Emcon doesn’t pay much, but at least teach the people to plow so the roads are accessible. If Emcon doesn’t have the equipment, why not? Emcon’s job is to look after the roads, why aren’t they. Not everyone can stay at home when the weather is bad, but the ones who can should be able to get out the next day, at least.

I would like to put in the paper a special thank you to the staff at the Castlegar Community Complex, Castlegar paramedics and volunteer fire department. On Thursday, December 27 during a hockey practice there was a situation where a boy fell head first into the boards. While the coaching staff stabilized the boy, we immediately went to the front desk staff of the complex to call 911. The staff and lifeguards were very professional and took immediate action to take over the situation while the paramedics were being called. The lifeguards were in shorts and t-shirts on the ice while assisting the young boy without complaint and made the family and the boy feel very comfortable during this situation, until the paramedics arrived. Without the quick action of the community complex staff, paramedics and the volunteer fire department we may not of had such a happy ending. On behalf of the Kootenay Avalanche I thank those involved, knowing we are surrounded by such great people.

-Larry Heigh Ootischenia

-John Jenner, Castlegar

Getting here’s a problem Your airport in Castlegar is “serviced” by Air Canada, with three daily flights from Vancouver. In winter most of these flights offered are canceled daily. We tried for three days to get to your airport during Christmas season to spend valuable time with family and two excited grandchildren. We have asked Air Canada by email why they offer a product they cannot deliver in winter time. No reply so far. Do you have stats on the number of flights canceled each year and what it is at Castlegar airport that makes flying in and out impossible? You must have very many unhappy, stranded visitors in your region that will tell all their friends and family not to bother coming to your town by air. Not good for tourism and business, I know. Please explain to many of us why this is happening. -Carla Rich, B.C. Lower Mainland Ed. note

To simplify things, it’s a basic issue involving terrain, weather and visibility. New software is apparently available which can greatly increase the capability of planes to get in and out of West Kootenay Regional Airport, and the City of Castlegar has made the offer of some $300,000 toward buying it as part of its June 2012 pitch for WestJet service. This would make travel to and from Castlegar more predictable and reliable. We await word on whether WestJet will choose to service Castlegar and area. It may be forthcoming as early as January, 2013.

Garbage charges I read in the Castlegar News that water, sewer and garbage rates are going up. Will the higher rate for water be the basic meter charge when they (the meters) come into operation? As I only put out one garbage bag per month, my garbage must be very valuable stuff. As for the sewer, I seem to have had the average flow for the last few years, I did not think it had increased in value. -John Gibson Castlegar

This is a situation all-too-familiar here in the city with the unfortunate nickname “Cancelgar.”

Gar Distribution Service Agent

It’s confirmed - 2012 wettest year ever Craig Lindsay Castlegar News Reporter

With a total of 1,089mm of combined rain and snow, 2012 is now on record as the wettest year in Castlegar since the Southeast Fire Centre began keeping records 48 years ago. The amount of precipitation turned out to be 45 per cent more than normal.

With an average annual temperature of 8.9 degrees, 2012 was slightly milder than the average normal temperature of 8.4 degrees. December got off to a warm and wet start with a new daily temperature record of 10 degrees set on the first. A series of Pacific frontal systems embedded in a

mild southwesterly flow then produced roughly 85 per cent of the month’s total rainfall within the first four days of the month. Cooler temperatures favoured snow during the third week of December (15th through 22nd), when a very active pattern delivered most of this month’s snow. A total of 34cm

of snow fell on Dec. 19, the most one-day snowfall since 1968. Except for some northwesterly gusts into the 60’s (km/h) during the morning of the 5th, this month was relatively calm in terms of winds, with a monthly average windspeed almost as low as has ever been seen during the month of December.

Winter meter safety To keep your utility meters accurate, accessible and safe this winter: • brush snow away by hand • don’t use a snowplow or blower near your meters • clear a path for the safety of our meter readers Never kick or hit the meter if ice builds up.

A Brilliant addition to the community

Elysia Samarodin and Mark Zeabin never expected they’d be having a New Year’s Baby. When Liv Zeabin arrived on Jan. 1, she was 12 days overdue. The tiny treasure was likely doing her parents a favour. After a “dynamic pregnancy,” Samarodin says she’d been having false contractions for some time and even thought her baby would arrive early. Then the flu hit. “I got so sick. She got so sick. We could barely take care of each other over Christmas,” says Zeabin.

“As soon as Elysia got better, I said let’s do this.” A remedy of apricot juice, castor oil, almond butter and lemon verbena put the expectant mama into labour. A brief affair, Liv did her parents another favour. After a couple hours of contractions and nine minutes of pushing, the New Year’s Baby arrived at 3:24 p.m. on Jan. 1 in Nelson’s Kootenay Lake Hospital. She weighed in at a whopping eight and a half pounds. “She is just exquisite to me,” says Samarodin. Older siblings Wyatt, 7 and 15-yearold Nikayla are also

pleased. “She’s the best ever, Mama. She’s the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen,” says Samarodin of Wyatt’s comments. The proud couple, living in Brilliant, was surprised at the arrival of a daughter. All along they’d expected a son. Having the New Year’s Baby feels special to her parents. “It’s neat that she’s the first baby of the year, at this big transition time,” says Samarodin. “Saying her name – Liv, it sounds just perfect.” With mom and babe in good health, the couple took their new bundle home on Jan. 2.

Local singer working on Nashville dream Castlegar News Reporter

This may not be the cowboy capital of Canada, but one Castlegar lady is putting out a country album and having a couple of songs picked up by country radio. “We had the CD release party for It Got Ugly on November 17,” said Lisa Nicole, who now lives in Vancouver. “We started pushing the first song If You Say You Do to country radio in October. It’s on over 31 country stations throughout Canada right now. Nicole recorded most of the album in Nashville. The CD has five songs on it and was

Castlegar. “I’ve been playing in Castlegar since I was in high school,” she said. “I always love coming home and doing shows at home. Since then, I’ve gained so many more fans in Castlegar. It’s great.” The second single from Nicole’s CD, Real Men Stay, is going to be pushed to radio in January. She also recently released a Christmas video for O Holy Night. Nicole has a new website at www. lisanicolemusic.com. Also, be sure to check her out on Facebook and Twitter. “If anyone wants to message me or add me on Facebook, I love talking to all my fans,” she said.

VICTORIA Smokers who want to make a New Year’s resolution to quit are reminded that help is available from B.C.’s Smoking Cessation Program. “Quitting smoking can be the best thing you can do for your health as it will reduce health risks like cancer, heart disease and asthma,” said Health Minister Margaret MacDiarmid. “There are a range of supports in place through our Smoking Cessation Program, and accessing them can be as simple as calling 8-1-1.” Since the Smoking Cessation Program was launched on Sept. 30, 2011, 161,453 orders for nicotine replacement therapies have been placed through HealthLink BC. As well, over 45,000 people have obtained a prescription for a smoking cessation drug while visiting their physician for another reason. The program aims to help British Columbians stop smok-

ing by assisting with the cost of smoking cessation aids. Once in each calendar year, B.C. residents enrolled with the Medical Services Plan can receive coverage for a single continuous course, lasting up to 12 weeks, of either a prescribed smoking cessation drug through the PharmaCare program or a free supply of nicotine replacement gum or patches. While a prescription for a smoking cessation drug can be obtained simply by visiting a physician for another reason, the nicotine replacement therapies can be easily accessed by calling HealthLink

BC at 8-1-1, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Smoking increases many health risks, including lung cancer, throat and oral cancer, heart disease, stroke and emphysema.

Smoking increases many health risks including lung cancer, throat cancer and oral cancer, heart disease, stroke and emphysema. For long-term smokers, it’s never a bad time to quit.

By quitting smoking, British Columbians are taking active steps towards making the healthy choice, the easy choice for themselves and their families. Quitting smoking and reducing exposure to second-hand smoke greatly improves both quality of life and lifespan. “There has never been a better time to quit smoking, with QuitNow offering a variety of tools that greatly complement the Smoking Cessation Program and help British Columbians to quit,” said BC Lung Association CEO Scott McDonald. “Choose to make

This is the time of year to make resolutions to change our lives for the better. It’s also good to resolve to make someone else’s life better too. If you know someone who is lonely or depressed, why not reach out and bring that person to your home for dinner. It will make you both feel better.

a positive impact on your health this season. Cancer prevention depends on healthy living and healthy public policies,” said Canadian Cancer Society, BC and Yukon, CEO Barbara Kaminsky. “I applaud British Columbians who have taken the important next step and chosen the Smoking Cessation Program.” British Columbians who register with the Smoking Cessation Program are able to receive further web, text and telephone support from QuitNow Services (‘QuitNow’), which is operated by the BC Lung Association. HealthLink BC staff can also transfer callers directly to QuitNow. While B.C. has the lowest smoking rate in Canada at 14.3 per cent, there are still approximately 550,000 British Columbians who smoke. An estimated 70 per cent of smokers in B.C. want to quit.

One of the most common resolutions people make for the New Year is to lose weight and to exercise regularly. Ironically, the latter certainly does help the weight-loss goal. Regular exercise is like taking a pill that’s good for many ailments. It helps control and prevent problems like heart disease, osteoporosis, arthritis, diabetes and insomnia. It’s never too late to start an exercise program. Speaking of depression, it does seem more prevalent at this time of year. There are many reasons for it but sometimes it just the lack of light during the short days of winter. Ask our pharmacists about light therapy. Often simply sitting under a special light for a 30 minute daily can banish the blues. Try to keep your hands away from your nose and mouth at this time of year. These two areas are where bacteria and viruses can easily enter the body. You don’t want your fingers to inoculate yourself with colds and flu. Another year has gone by and I want to wish you all a very happy and healthy 2013. Thank you for all your kind comments about the column. We look forward to serving you throughout the coming year with great service by our great staff. Happy New Year!

SOCIAL EVENT FOR 2013 in place of our New years Dance.

STAY TUNED!

Craig Lindsay Castlegar News Reporter

While not a fruitless excercise, the Castlegar Rebels were certainly hoping for more out of their weekend home and home with Beaver Valley than a single point. The Rebels had to fight back to get the 2-2 tie at home Saturday night after being doubled 6-3, in Fruitvale Friday against the Nitehawks. On Friday, The ‘Hawks were led by four goals and two assists from veteran forward Dallas Calvin who opened the scoring at 14:02 of the first period with a shorthanded goal. Jamie Vlanich tied the game shortly after with a power play marker assisted by Aaron Brewer and Diego Bartlett. The home team took a commanding 4-1 lead after the first with three unanswered goals to end the period. A power play goal from Dan Holland at 5:54 of the second put BV up 5-1. Goals from Aaron Petten (Kody Disher, Erik Alden) and Alden (Stu Walton, Matt

Connor Beauchamp struggled between the pipes for the Rebs, giving up four goals on 13 shots and getting the yank at 16:03 of the first period. Jordan Gluck finished the game, stopping 22 of 24 shots. The Rebels outshot the ‘Hawks 41-37. On Saturday, a scoreless first period saw Rebel players Bryan Lubin and Matt Reed tossed after a late period dustup.

Jordan Gluck played well in net for Castlegar, stopping 35 shots and picking up the game’s first star, while his Beaver Valley counterpart Zach Perehudoff had a strong performance of his own stopping 42 Castlegar shots.

short course season in preparation for the AA and AAA championship meets at the end of February. The Kootenay Swim Club has doubled in size this season and the swim meet was our club’s largest turnout thus

far. We had swimmers ranging from ages 9 to 18 participate in the meet. Young swimmers, coming from both Castlegar and Nelson, where the club practices, each swam up to eight races plus relays over the course of the weekend. Niallan Collier made afternoon swims in all of the events he competed in this weekend placing top eight in 50 free, 100 breaststroke, 50 fly, 100 fly, and 200 IM. Collier dropped over a second and a half off his 50 fly and 50 free and over

nine seconds in his 100 fly swim. Gabby Hanvold qualified for a AAA time in the morning swim in the 50 fly and is within tenths of a second to a national age group qualifying time; Riley Mager swam 100 breaststroke also qualifying for his first AAA time. There were two swimmers who successfully competed in their first ever swim meet, LeeAnn Zaitsoff and Ella Koth , both learning the ways of a swim meet and performing exceptionally well for first time meet goers.
