Dog killed in Conibear trap near MacDonald Creek Claire paradis Arrow Lakes News

A dog was killed by a trap set just off the Baerg Forest Service Road near MacDonald Creek between Nakusp and Burton. “It took three of us everything we had to get the trap off,” said Brian Graham, neighbour to the unfortunate Yellow Lab named Nikki and her owners Chris Szabo and Brenda Hoyle. Szabo, Hoyle and Nikki had returned to Baerg FSR for another walk on Boxing Day. It was on their descent that Nikki suddenly ran into the woods, shortly after which the couple heard a terrible sound. Fearing it was a cougar attack and that the dog would be dragged through the woods, the two didn’t rush into the scene. Fortunately, they were able to get cell phone service and call Graham who also enlisted the help of nearby local Charles Maxfield. “They called to help find the dog because I knew the area,” Maxfield told the Arrow Lakes News. As he ventured off the road, cutting through the bush to where the dog had last been heard, he spotted one trap and then another. When he first spotted the dog’s body in the trap, he thought it might have been a cougar. “I felt really sorry for them. They said they’d had the dog for ten years,” said Maxfield. After wrestling with the 330 Conibear

trap for ten minutes, the jaws were released but it was far too late for Nikki. The metal device meant to trap lynx, bobcats, wolverines or cougars had crushed the life from her. Designed to be a humane trap, the Conibear is a kind of body-gripping trap that kills animals quickly by clamping around their neck. The traps are difficult to release; for information about how to release an animal from a Conibear trap, you can visit the site www.terrierman.com/traprelease.htm. Herald Friedenberger, the trapper who runs the line, doesn’t like to see dogs tangled in traps but said people should be more cautious when they’re out in the bush. “I feel bad, I don’t want people’s pets getting hammered,” he told the Arrow Lakes News. Friedenberger had put up yellow tape warning that there was an active trapping line in the area. A yellow ribbon warning of an active trapline dangled from a nearby tree and was hardly visible, said Barb Graham, who returned to the area with her husband Brian after the dog’s death to take pictures. “You wouldn’t have seen it if you hadn’t been looking for it,” she told the Arrow Lakes News. The faded ribbon looked like just another piece of flagging tape along the road. Unless you looked very closely, it was difficult to read the warning printed on the ribbon. Friedenberger has had issues with both ribbons and signs. Once he discovered that the ribbon had been chewed by a cougar.

Friedenberger believes that signs are knocked down by people opposed to trapping. “They don’t like trapping. I’ve had traps sprung and smashed too,” he told the Arrow Lakes News.

The trapper is going to bring up the idea of getting government signs installed at a meeting of trappers and a MOE biologist coming up this month. Friedenberger is hopeful that governmentendorsed signs will stay up, because tamper-

Nakusp and area property assessments decrease Claire paradis Arrow Lakes News

Nakusp residential property values were down by 7.84 per cent according to BC Assessment. Claire Paradis/Arrow Lakes News

Nakusp residential property values decreased by 7.84 per cent according to data released from BC Assessment Jan. 2. Commercial properties also declined, but by only by a modest 0.32 per cent. The Village of Nakusp assessment roll decreased from $250 million last year to $234 million this year, a much smaller drop than in nearby Silverton and New Denver. The hamlet of Silverton in the West Kootenay led the province in property assessment decline, hitting the mark of 19.15 per cent. Silverton was followed by its neighbour New Denver at 18.72

per cent. The rural area surrounding the three centres was also assessed at a lower value at $1.0 billion this year, down from $1.1 billion last year. Although most homes have decreased moderately from last year’s assessment, the changes are quite variable depending on a property’s specific location, said Dennis Hickson, Deputy Assessor. The northern areas of the province increased, with the Peace River area leading the way with 10.43 per cent. Prince George and area values also went up to the tune of 5.63 per cent. The total value for real estate in the province was $1.107 trillion, up from last year’s $1.043 trillion. Assessments are in the mail and

making their way to homeowners. If you have an issue or disagreement with your assessment, contact BC Assessment as soon as possible in January, said Hickson. “If a property owner is still concerned about their assessment after speaking to one of our appraisers, they may submit a Notice of Complaint (Appeal) by January 31, for an independent review by a Property Assessment Review Panel,” he added. The Property Assessment Review Panels, independent of BC Assessment, are appointed annually by the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.

Death of family dog creates call for better signage TRAPS from page 1

ing with government signage has greater consequences. Although the trapper has had dogs caught in traps before, this is the first death and he would like it to be the last. Because the trap Nikki died in was designed to catch small wild cats, Friedenberger is going to try mounting traps off the ground on the side of a tree and see how that works. Catching another dog is not something he wants to see happen again. RDCK Director Paul Peterson was also adamant that changes must be made to prevent more accidental

trapping. “It’s just terrible,” Peterson said, adding, “I don’t want to see this happen again in Area K. Ever.” The Area K Director will be pushing for a resolution to be created by the RDCK and taken to UBCM. From there, resolutions go to the provincial government and changes to legislation can be made. It’s a long process, said Peterson, but the director believes the effort is well worth it. This is the second case of a dog getting caught in a Conibear trap in less than two weeks. Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations is currently looking into Nikki’s death.

Property values dip in much of the province Black Press

Property assessment statements are in the mail this week, showing slight drops in estimated property values for most regions of the B.C. Despite the decreases, Finance Minister Mike de Jong announced Wednesday that the threshold for the B.C. homeowners’ grant is increasing by $10,000 to $1.295 million. The grant is set to make 95.5 per cent of homeowners eligible for the full amount, which is $570 in the Capital, Greater Vancouver and Fraser Valley regional districts. The northern and rural benefit adds an

extra $200 for homeowners outside those districts, an amount added to compensate rural people for extra costs of the carbon tax on fossil fuels. An additional grant of $275 is available to homeowners who are aged 65 and up, permanently disabled or qualified war veterans. Assessments are considered a snapshot of the property value as of July 1, 2012, which predates some of the recent decline in real estate markets. In Greater Victoria, most homeowners will see reductions in the range of two to six per cent.  “A significant number of prop-

erties in the region are actually decreasing in value,” said Reuben Dankody, assessor for the Capital Region. “Since our valuation date of July 1, 2012, the overall property market shows signs of further decline in sales volume, while prices have generally been stable.” In the Kootenays, total assessment roll value decreased slightly in Nelson, Salmo and Slocan, while rural property values held steady. Cranbrook also saw a small average decline, with assessed value of a typical single-family home going from $256,000 to $250,000 as of last summer. Property values generally 

remained stable in the Okanagan, with changes from five per cent up to five per cent down depending on location and type of property. In the Northwest, Terrace bucked the trend with a slight average increase in assessed values. In Smithers and surrounding communities, residential values generally held steady while commercial and industrial properties saw decreases between five and 20 per cent. Property owners can check their assessments online at bcassessment.ca (click on e-ValueBC) and compare with others in their neighbourhood to decide if they wish to file an appeal by Jan. 31.

Changes in the property tax payable depends on the actual tax rates to be set by each local municipality, so a home that’s assessed five per cent higher might not pay any more in tax if the average assessment in the city rose 10 per cent and the local council sets its rate to generate a smaller tax revenue increase. The total assessed value of real estate in B.C. rose 2.3 per cent from a year ago. Most cities are seeing gains of around 1.5 per cent in their assessment rolls from new construction, expanding their tax base.

Willhorse brings Southern rock to Three Lions Pub Claire paradis Arrow Lakes News

Golden, B.C. rockers Willhorse bring their original songs to Nakusp as part of their cd release tour this January. Photo courtesy Willhorse

“We’re a brotherhood more than a band,” says Willhorse bass player Todd Menzies over the phone, “like modern day pirates.” The Golden, B.C., band was on the brink of another tour when Menzies was explaining the all-forone dynamics of the band. Formed just ten months ago in the eastern reaches of the province, Willhorse has already been very busy writing new material and touring it through British Columbia and Alberta. After months of being inspired and working on new songs nearly every day, the band is now taking its first album on the road. The non-stop touring and writing is reminiscent of the 70s, said Menzies, who recalled that back in the day rock and roll bands had a release every year, unlike most groups these days. “We’re going to press our album

on vinyl and get back to the way things were,” said the musician. Menzies characterized their original songs as Southern rock, a blend of country and western with rock’n’roll, and rattled off the Allman Brothers, Black Crowes and Sheepdogs as sources of inspiration for Willhorse. “We’re an original band,” he told the Arrow Lakes News, although he did say Willhorse did occasionally bust out their take on a song they’d found inspiring. Their tour is taking them through some great ski towns, a bonus for Menzies who is the only skier in the bunch. Willhorse will be playing a stripped-down mainly acoustic gig at a heli-ski lodge this winter, and the bass player is hoping to switch the guitar for a pair of skis at least for a little while. Willhorse is playing at the Three Lions Pub in Nakusp on Saturday, Jan. 12. You can check out their selftitled album online at iTunes.

Feldenkrais classes teach the body how to learn Claire paradis Arrow Lakes News

“What’s Feldenchrist?” I asked my friend when she said she was going to a class at NaCoMo, and did I want to come? “It’s Feldenkrais,” she corrected. Oh. Created by Moshé Feldenkrais, the eponymous exercise is a system of movements designed to increase awareness of the body and how it works. If you go to Feldenkrais with Tyson in Nakusp, you’ll soon discover what that means in practise. Each class focuses on a particular set of muscles and movements which students are instructed to pay close attention to. The exercises encourage an attitude of experimentation and exploration of one’s own body, seeing how it works and fits together. Arriving at the studio, I lay down on a mat in a class with about a half dozen students. Tyson Bartel, our instructor, narrated the way through our experiment in movement, beginning with an overall stock-taking of

how our bodies felt, where it contacted the floor and how evenly it lay. Next, he instructed us to become aware of our shoulders and move them in particular ways, following the movement closely with our minds. As we worked through different movements noticing the changes and relationships between different muscles and structures, Bartel told us that Feldenkrais was designed to reorient the body and mind relationship to teach increased flexibility to both. Over the course of the class, the simple isolated movement of a single shoulder blade up and down the back increased in complexity, and the movement slowly became an effort of both concentration and coordination involving shoulders, hips and head moving in time with each other. The degree of mindfulness required to follow the physical movements with the mind was almost enough of an effort on its own to create some sweat. Bartel explained that by involving both mind and body in the exercise we were repatterning habits of movement as well as increasing body

awareness. Feldenkrais exercises involve several different muscle groups and types of movement; the shoulder and hip exercises we were going through in the evening class was just one of many. Bartel is responsive to students, so if there is a consensus from the students that a particular area of the body needs some work that day, he can tailor the class in that direction. At the end of the session, the students once again examined their overall position and sense of their body lying supine on the mat, investigating if there were any changes now the movement was over. Lying on my back, my shoulders felt as though they were now further away from my ears, and tension in my neck had diminished. It felt as though more of my body was on the floor than before, and I did have more of an appreciation for where my limbs were in space and how they related to tension in the centre of my body. The manner in which the class was taught and the difference from start to finish encouraged a

Hate from preachers about Newtown horrifying Editor, The first hate-filled comment was made by Bryan Fischer, a director of The American Family Association. The comment, made shortly after details of the massacre became available, was that “God is a gentleman and would never venture into places where he is not wanted.” This comment is a contradiction of everything that everybody knows about God, whether he exists or has died (according to Nietzsche), or is pure fantasy (according to atheists). Surely his omniscience trumps his gentlemanly qualities. It is worth noting that the Southern Poverty Law Centre has designated the American Family Association as a hate organization because of its explicit racism and opposition to other matters of social importance. The second hate-filled comment was by the well-known Christian apologist William Lane Craig, who was mentioned in my second column which appeared in the Arrow Lakes News of Nov. 28 under the heading of “Atheists are a funny lot.” Craig equates the massacre in Newtown with the first Christmas. Craig performs extremely agile intellectual gymnastics that only an apologist of his standing can, and I might add that there is no-one more highly regarded than Craig in all of Christendom for his uncanny ability to make sense of the manifold discrepancies in the Bible.

The third hate-filled pronouncement came from Mike Huckabee, failed presidential candidate and Baptist Minister. Huckabee’s statement is directly contradictory to that of Bryan Fischer. Huckabee insists that God will be there to comfort the grieving. Why was he not there to prevent the massacre? God only knows. Perhaps he’s squeamish at the sight of so much blood, although his history of genocide as recorded in the Old Testament – you know, the wholesale slaughter of Canaanites and others – would tend to negate that theory. A particularly virulent sermon was delivered by Reverend Sam Morris two days after the massacre in Newtown, CT. He attributed the event to the fact that “junk about evolution is taught in schools” as well as “how to be a homo.” It should be noted that he is a Baptist preacher heading a small congregation in Tennessee, The Old Paths Baptist Church. He ended his sermon by suggesting that the shooter’s corpse should be strung up from a stout tree, doused in gasoline, set alight and left hanging until the birds had picked his bones clean. He forgot to state his preference for the type of tree, deciduous or conifer, the latter being a real hazard for the community due to its flammability. John Perkins Nakusp, B.C.

opinion

Take action for the sake of safety Editor, I have spent my life in the woods and mountains and encouraged my children to learn and love the B.C. wilderness as my father taught me. We enjoyed a family walk with our dogs Christmas Day up Baerg Creek Forestry Road adjacent to MacDonald Provincial Park Nakusp and returned again Boxing Day. I have never encountered an active trap line without warning and thus unprepared, lost my faithful companion of 10 and half years, our yellow Labrador Nikki.

We live with the sad image of prying her dead body out of the trap and while I fall asleep, I am awakened by her desperate cries to survive. I urge you to lobby your MLA to legislate mandatory adequate signage and location of active trap lines considering proximity to MacDonald Provincial Park Nakusp and other publicly accessed areas. I was raised to believe that Crown Land is for us all, not solely for loggers, hunters and trappers, and that access is a right that each of us ensures through

our taxes. As Nakusp, the Region and Province of B.C. search for promotional strategies to draw tourism, recreation and business, careful consideration needs to be given to priorities of all land use. Continuing to do things the way they have always been done will ensure the same or similar results. Revitalizing an area will entail new and dynamic ways of thinking, living and conservation; it is paramount that we all work together to this end. Brenda Hoyle-Szabo Nakusp, B.C.

Idle No More in Nakusp either Editor, Albert Einstein once said: “The world is a dangerous place (in which) to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don’t do anything about it.” Most people are aware of the Idle No More movement that is sweeping not only our country,

but many other countries as well. We may not be able to join marches, protest rallies etc, but there are things we can can do. One example is to write on both sides of every dollar bill that passes through you hands the words “Idle No More”. Hopefully some of these bills will eventually end up in Mr.

Harper’s hand and persuade him to meet with Chief Theresa Spence who is on a hunger strike for her people. Many of whom live in terrible third world like conditions. Let’s do something about it. Thank you. Hans Sparreboom Nakusp, B.C.

Death at MacDonald Creek preventable Editor, Here is an open letter to Hon. Steve Thomson: Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. Dear Mr. Minister: On Boxing Day 2012 our neighbours from Edmonton were enjoying a wilderness walk along the Baerg Forest Service Road located adjacent to MacDonald Creek Provincial Park 16 kilometres south of Nakusp with their two dogs. Suddenly Nikki, an 11-year-old yellow Lab, bolted into the forest. Moments later the serenity was broken by the cries of a dog dying an indescribable and preventable death. Nikki had become yet another statistic of domestic animals having been caught in Conibear traps. Nikki suffered unimaginable pain as the steel trap gripped, strangled and broke her neck with a pressure of at least 90 pounds

per square inch. Naturally our neighbours are mourning the loss of their companion but are thankful that this tragic event did not happen to an inquisitive youngster or even an unwary adult. Their anger is not directed at the licensed holder of the trap line but is focussed at the current policies and regulations of the BC Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations that presently state trappers “should post” – not “must be required to post” – visible signage notifying the public of trapping activity within areas adjacent to our provincial parks and Crown Land frequented by outdoor enthusiasts. These signs should be of a reasonable dimension (50 cm by 50 cm), plainly visible at the commencement of the trail head and clearly state “Active Trapping

Within the Area AND All Pets MUST be Leashed.” If school and playground zones require signage advising motorists to exercise caution it begs the following question: Why do we not require signs to be posted notifying the public of active trapping activity? I am proposing the immediate need for a review and subsequent legislative change requiring that “holders of government issued trapping licenses to be required to post signage warning the public of active trapping in the vicinity, especially when trapping in regions located adjacent to popular recreational areas such as MacDonald Creek Provincial Park or other BC Parks located adjacent to populated centres.” Brian Graham Nakusp, B.C.

Tyson Bartel brings an exploration of movement in his Feldenkrais classes to Nakusp each week at NaCoMo. Claire Paradis/Arrow Lakes News Claire paradis Arrow Lakes News

Travelling the world was the beginning of Tyson Bartel’s journey both inside and out. As a young man he decided visiting the Mesoamerican ruins he had learned about while studying anthropology in college could help him figure out what direction his education would take. It did. Instead of determining his major, he was bitten by the travel bug and abandoned college for lessons learned on the road. “That was it, I was a traveller then,” said Tyson. The departure was one that deeply shaped his life and his education. In Asia, Tyson encountered not only Thai massage, but also Vipassana meditation during his travels. During a ten-day meditation retreat, he came to the realization there was a lot of “junk” attached to his concept of self. “I realized it wasn’t a matter of snapping my fingers and fixing everything,” he revealed, “It was going to be a lot of work.” The next leg of his exploration led him to India, where he found a rich world filled with both heaven and hell. The strong spiritual traditions and the rigours of daily life affected Tyson, who studied yoga as well as meditation while there. It was those experiences that led him to pass on what he had learned once he was back in Canada. Back in Kamloops, Tyson became involved with the only yoga studio in town, and when line-ups for classes became too much for the lone instructor to handle, Tyson was asked teach. “I wasn’t nervous, I was excited about it,” he said, confident that his devotion to yoga would make him a good teacher. Teaching from experience came naturally to him, and within six months he had a full-time teaching gig.

It was during a yoga teacher training session that Tyson first came across Feldenkrais, a system of movement and awareness developed by Moshé Feldenkrais. Having suffered from back trouble, he first felt a shift during one set of exercises, and continued to repeat the exercises. Tyson’s experience with the movements lit a fire in him to learn more. Finding instructional tapes, he dedicated time to studying Feldenkrais at home. Inspired by the philosophy and process, he began to tell everyone about it. Feldenkrais is a system of movements designed to increase awareness of the body and to improve both the movement repertoire and general wellbeing. Founder Moshé Feldenkrais explored the connection between the body and mind, particularly anxiety and movement. He stated that object of the exercises was “more flexible minds, not just more flexible bodies.” A devoted judo practitioner, developed techniques designed to increase awareness of the body and the connections between mind and body. Thanks to a teacher that came to the Kamloops yoga studio, Tyson found out about a fouryear Feldenkrais program being offered in Washington state. Even though it was a struggle to get everything in place in order to go, he was excited and determined and completed the training in 2001. “I’m still integrating Feldenkrais methodology,” said Tyson, who sees how the practise has affected how he approaches his every day life, increasing his consciousness of what is happening with every movement. Another more recent voyage shifted his life again when he came to the Kootenays a few years ago on holidays and he saw that more of the life of his dreams – breathing clean air, planting a

garden, hiking in lush nature – was possible here. Leaving his successful yoga teaching career he had built over the years in Kamloops, Tyson has made the jump to the Kootenays with no regrets. Although he still has strong ties to family and community in Kamloops, the Kootenays are now home for him. He now teaches Feldenkrais in Nakusp and Winlaw, and periodically travels back to Kamloops to offer classes there too. During a Feldenkrais class with Tyson, specific ranges of movement are explored, and how they affect and are affected by other parts of the body. Students are asked to note how they feel at the beginning before the exercises are done, and to compare how they feel afterward to see what kind of changes have taken place. The class is an experiment in increasing consciousness around muscles, tendons, and movement where each student is the explorer of their own bodies. Emphasis isn’t on what “should” be done, rather on learning about how your own body moves and feels. That being said, people who come to Tyson’s Feldenkrais classes generally leave feeling relaxed as well as more knowledgeable about themselves. Living in the south Slocan valley, Tyson’s journey continues. Like any good teacher, he is also a perennial student, and has recently discovered a new realm of experience and exploration in the world of Kundalini yoga. You are welcome to join Tyson’s Feldenkrais class at NaCoMo in Nakusp on Tuesday evening at 8 p.m. or Wednesday at 9:15 a.m. If you are interested in more information about Tyson’s Feldenkrais classes or Thai touch massage, you can contact him at 250-226-6826 or thaitouch@yahoo.com.

An information meeting to discuss requirements under this RFP will occur at 13:00 pm local time on January 14, 2013 at the Edgewood Royal Canadian Legion Hall (234 Granby Drive). A site visit is expected to take place immediately following the information meeting. While attendance is at the discretion of proponents, those who do not attend will be deemed to have attended the information meeting and site visit and to have received any and all of the oral and written information given at such meeting and visit. Columbia Power may record, and post on BC Bid, a list of questions asked and answers provided during the site visit.

First annual Falcons Cup a hit: 2013 tourney already in the works By Kyle Kusch

Special to the Arrow Lakes News

In a welcome throwback to the days of old-school commercial hockey, the Nakusp & District Sports Complex hosted the first annual Falcons Cup on Dec. 22 and 23. Four teams composed of hockey players from around the valleys and ex-pats home for the holidays waged battle to determine the honour of being the first Cup champion. With a wide range of ages among the players (some athletes were as young as 20; others as old as 67!), spectators and players alike were treated to the spectacle of not just brothers playing with and against brothers, but fathers skating with and against their own sons. Rosters also featured players with extensive junior and even professional experience. The action actually began Friday night at the Leland Hotel, where the four team captains and their goaltenders held a 53-player draft to fill the team rosters. Each team was named after a tree (Cedar, Hemlock, Pine, and Spruce). Round-robin action took place all day Saturday and early Sunday, with the top two teams advancing to the final Sunday afternoon. The competitive nature of the tournament was evident from the start as Wayne Abbott’s Pine squad edged out Mike Smith’s Team Cedar 3-2. Despite

being outshot by Pine 33-14, the histrionics and skill of Cedar goalie Taylor Reitmeier kept the game close. The second game saw the defence-heavy Hemlock (captain Darren Wethal) battle the speedy Spruce (captain Ron Palmer), who had drafted former WHL 50-goal scorer Seth Leonard with the first pick. On the back of goalie Brodie Yano, Hemlock would get away to a 4-1 lead in the first period and then set it on cruise for a 7-5 victory. As the tournament progressed, the surprising Pine would run roughshod over, led by the offensive tandem of Bryce Cann and Riley Weatherhead, not to mention their veteran goalie, Ryan Struck, who simply got better with every game. With Cedar finishing 3-0 and the other three squads each trading wins and losses (including Hemlock losing their last two games to Cedar and Spruce after losing star forward Dallas Sinclair to a wrist injury), the second spot in the final would be decided by goal differential in the final game as Cedar played Spruce. Spruce came out strong with three goals, and goalie Mark Macaulay pitched 30 minutes of shutout hockey before giving up three goals of his own to Cedar’s Bruce Oakes and Mike Smith. Those two goals ensured that Cedar would make it to the final no matter the result, and Spruce were

After the final Zamboni break, Smith rallied his Cedar troops and nearly pulled off the miracle comeback. After Ryan Fehler ended Ryan Struck’s shutout streak in goal, Smith cashed in a Fehler pass with just 2:16 left in regulation to make it 3-2. Applying incredible pressure on the Pine goalie, Smith nearly tied the game twice in the dying seconds. The comeback was not to be, however, as Struck was

money when it counted all weekend and Team Spruce would capture the first-ever Falcons Cup. Pine would end up with the top three scorers in the tournament. Bryce Cann would lead all scorers with 5G-3A, one point ahead of partner Riley Weatherhead (2G-5A), and two ahead of teammate Rodney Volansky (3G-3A). Despite being on the losing end of three games, Cedar’s Taylor Reitmeier was the class of the field in goal with a .910 save percentage and an average of 27.75 saves per game. Hemlock’s Tyson Klein

was the weekend’s top faceoff artist, winning 68 per cent of his draws. With hundreds of fans in attendance throughout the tournament, this first-ever Falcons Cup was considered such a success that dates have already been reserved for the second edition next December. Big congratulations go out to Zac Wethal, the Nakusp Minor Hockey Association, and all of the weekend’s numerous volunteers for making the tournament a great success.

2012 Holiday Hockey jamboree held in Rossland By Pat Caron

Special to the Arrow Lakes News

On Sunday Dec. 23 the PeeWee Wildcats and Bantam Wildcats hosted a Holiday Hockey jamboree at the Rossland Arena. Fifty-six girls attend from all over the West Kootenay including Grand Forks, Nakusp, Kaslo, Nelson, Castlegar and Greater Trail. Players ranged in age from nine to 18, from Atom to Midget. Two teams were created

teucci, Christina Bonacci, Chelsea Mclean, Marnie Audia and Kayla Martin. Ice time was only part of the fun, and after the hockey was done, a fun tailgate party was held in the parking lot. “After the games, the parking lot was filled with players and parents to enjoy some hot chocolate, sausages, goodies and friends,” Caron told the Arrow Lakes News.

from the mix of Atom and PeeWee girls. “It has been a long time since the bleachers have been that full,” said Pam Caron, one of the organizers of the jamboree. Coached by McKayla Yuris, Erin Mclean, Denomie Fisher and Ava Collier, the girls played a full game refereed by Anjela Szabo. Bantam and Midget girls also formed two teams and were coached by Alumni Female Wildcats Katie Yuris, Ella Mat-

Rare birds sighted during cusp of new year

Gary Davidson Birds of Nakusp Last week I was driving through Crescent Bay and saw a bird cruising low over a snow-covered field. My immediate reaction, based on the behaviour was Northern Harrier. This is a fairly large, slender hawk with long pointed wings. It flies low over fields as it hunts using occasional flaps and long glides. But the bird I was looking at was flapping much too much with deep floppy wing beats. As soon as I saw that, I knew I was looking at a Short-eared Owl. This is an uncommon bird in our area. They breed in grassland or marshy areas, something we have very little of. There are no breeding records at all for the Nakusp region. They do pass through here

on migration sometimes, but only once every few years. Since 1980, I have known them to visit the area just six times. Some of these birds have remained for several weeks; others were seen just one day. The day after this sighting, I returned to Crescent Bay to see if it was still around. I did not relocate it there, but coming home through Brouse I found two of them sitting on fence posts! Migration normally occurs much earlier than this, so this bird is not casually moving through on its way to its normal wintering ground. It was probably living comfortably up the valley somewhere (there is a lot of good habitat in the Revelstoke area), and was pushed along by the recent snows. Not all migratory species have predetermined routes and schedules; some seem to go only as far and as fast as conditions dictate. I hope these two continue on further south fairly quickly. I was quite pleased to see the Crescent Bay bird catch and eat a good sized vole while I was watching, but if the snow gets much deeper, detecting prey will become much more difficult.

Also last week I saw a Northern Pygmy-Owl in Nakusp. This tiny little predator is much more common here and we regularly have a few around the region in winter. During summer they go up the mountains somewhat and live at higher elevations. In October, there were two Blue Jays in town. These visitors from the east are a much paler blue than the familiar Steller’s Jay, and they also have extensive white on their undersides. I saw them on and off for a few weeks but then didn’t see them for quite a while. Last week I again heard one calling in town. In discussion with a couple of residents who maintain feeders, I learned that these jays have apparently been here all along. They are not nearly as loud and obvious as our Steller’s Jays and prefer to stay hidden in the trees when not feeding. Originally, this species was found only east of the Rocky Mountains, but in recent times they have become much more regular in the west. They are now breeding in places such as Cranbrook, Creston and Castlegar.

2012 Annual Awards Ceremony TO BE ANNOUNCED Everyone Welcome!

Linda Wall Trout Lake Tracker Trout Lake had a rather extended fall this year, which allowed bonus time to top off winter wood supplies and complete outdoor chores that are usually left until the very last moment. And now we shovel… The Trout Lake Community Club held an extraordinary general meeting on Oct. 6 where 12 members attended. To date, the 2012-2013 membership stands at 108 members. The short meeting agenda recapped the Club’s activities this year, which included the completed work on the community hall doors and the purchase of a metal cemetery sign. If you’re looking for some fun ways to get fit in Trout Lake, winter exercise classes are in full swing at the community hall. Everyone is welcome to try the one-hour classes on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays at 10:30 a.m. A variety of fitness options are available, including Yoga, Pilates, Tai Chi and a variety of others. There is no charge for TLCC members but non-members are asked to donate $2 or buy a Club membership for $5. Cribbage nights continue during the winter months at the Trout Lake community hall. Organizer, Mike Rankin, generally has 12 to 15 participants join in the monthly event, which is a mere $5 per person. HMC Services Inc. held their annual stakeholders meeting on Oct.31 at the community hall. A number of principal parties were

on hand to discuss local highway concerns and the winter maintenance programme. Telus held a lively town meeting at the community hall on Nov. 29, at which nearly 30 residents attended. Telus representatives were General Manager for Interior South, Steve Jenkins; Telus Ambassador, Aurora Sekela; and Field Manager West Kootenay Region, Chris Ridge. During the presentation, Steve clarified the purpose of the government deferral account program and its effect on high-speed Internet service into the Trout Lake area.

TLBCIS has an expansive Internet coverage area from Trout Lake to Halcyon Hot Springs, which dwarfs the Telus range of 4.2 kms from the point of presence (POP) at the Trout Lake townsite. Telus representatives assured the audience that working with TLBCIS, they would ‘do what needs to be done’ to get residents connected. TLBCIS President, John Wall, spoke with a number of potential subscribers at the conclusion of the meeting to explain that TLBCIS also remains committed to getting the Internet service to their residences.

A winter morning at Gerrard captured on camera by Linda Wall. Photo courtesy of Linda Wall Telus’s directive from the deferral program was to install the fibre optic connection to Trout Lake, Jenkins told the people at the meeting. Once that directive was complete, Telus would be obliged to enter into a partnership with any existing, local Internet service provider (ISP). What this means is that Telus will now provide a wholesale service to the Trout Lake BC Internet Society (TLBCIS), the local ISP, as they already have the Internet infrastructure in place.

John Wall is happy that subscribers can expect improved Internet service with fibre optic connection speeds greatly increased allowing faster download and upload response times. Now that we are settling into our Trout Lake winter, we can reflect on our accomplishments from 2012 and ponder opportunities that may lie ahead in the New Year. From my home to yours, I wish you all the best in 2013! Cheers!
