Protesters hold Revelstoke Idle No More rally

Idle No More protesters gather at the Revelstoke Community Centre on Jan. 1. Aaron Orlando/Revelstoke Times Review

editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

The Idle No More protest movement held its first event in Revelstoke on New Year's Day at the Revelstoke Community Centre. Just under 20 people gathered in a circle where they held brief ceremonies, sang songs accompanied

by drums and delivered speeches. Following the ceremony, the group walked to the Columbia River where they released a spirit plate into the river. "It's a very simple gathering of people in support of Idle No More and [Attawapiskat] Chief [Theresa] Spence and our land," explained organizer Michelle Cole.

The Idle No More protest movement began in December, inspired partially by the hunger strike by Spence, who is seeking a meeting with Prime Minister Stephen Harper. The grassroots movement focuses on ongoing issues with treaty rights and also focuses on the federal government's omnibus

He was wearing dark coloured jeans with white stitching on the pant legs and pant pockets, a black toque, a short black heavy style jacket, and light coloured winter boots with laces.

"It's a pretty sad state of affairs that the government can't step up and even speak to her." "It's time people … step up and really take action and not stand idle anymore," she said. "I see a lot of momentum and change coming about." Cole is the co-chair of the Aboriginal Education Advisory Committee in Revelstoke, but said she was organizing the event independently of that role. It's hoped the event will raise awareness about First Nations in the Revelstoke area. "This was a very thriving aboriginal community at the time of contact," Cole said. Cole encouraged everyone to write to their MP David Wilks or Prime Minister Stephen Harper to express their support for the movement.

"It's about sustainable human relationships, that's what Idle No More is about, and moving towards a fair and reasonable approach to governing Canada," Cole said. In a speech at the ceremony, Cole criticized the state of relations in Canada. "Canada is a dysfunctional family.

Revelstoke residential property assessments drop by 7.87%

Average residential property drops from $332,000 to $324,000, but commercial values jump dramatically Aaron Orlando

editor@revelstoketimesreview.com

Residential property values in Revelstoke dropped by 7.87 per cent, one of the biggest drops for any municipality in the province. In contrast, commercial property values in Revelstoke jumped by 27.74 per cent, according to new figures released Jan. 2 by BC Assessment. The numbers represent the change in the total value of all properties in each category. The average ‘2013’ residential property value for a Revelstoke residence on the July 1, 2012 cutoff date was $324,000. That was down by $8,000 from the same date in 2011, when the average ‘2012’ residential property value was $332,000. Okanagan region deputy assessor Tracy Wall said the change to the residential values was primarily driven by ‘market movement’ which totalled -4.82 per cent of the -7.87 per cent drop. The big jump of 27.74 per cent in the commercial sector was driven by additions of new properties to the sector, such as completion of hotel projects, which drive up the total value of commercial properties in the municipality. In fact, the ‘market movement’ of commercial properties was actually negative, dropping by 1.14 per cent. Wall said that additional nonmarket changes to the residential sector “had to do with Revel-

stoke Mountain Resort.” The resort and its parent company Northland Properties have sought to reclassify properties over the past four years, which can shift individual parcels between commercial and residential classifications, leading to swings in either category. Without doing a detailed analysis of all these individual changes, Wall said it is difficult to quantify exactly what was driving these

changes. Wall said that reliable numbers for CSRD Area B were not available. Revelstoke appears to have the eighth largest drop in residential assessments in B.C., and was consistent with a downward trend in the Kootenay-Columbia region. The hamlet of Silverton in the West Kootenay led the province in property assessment decline, hit-

ting the mark of 19.15 per cent. Silverton was followed by its neighbour New Denver at 18.72 per cent. Radium Hot Springs was next, dropping by 10.08 per cent. Most municipalities in the region saw declines, although most were more modest. Some increased. The overall assessment dollar value for the City of Revelstoke was not available. To the west, Sicamous also expe-

rienced a significant drop, down by 9.37 per cent. It is the second year for property value decreases. In 2012, overall residential values in Revelstoke dropped by 5.39 per cent over 2011 values. Across B.C., the total value of real estate increased by 2.3 per cent to a total of $1.129 trillion. Regionally, there were mixed changes. Spurred by oil and gas development, areas of Northern B.C. experienced property value increases, while the Lower Mainland was a mixed bag of modest increases and decreases. You can search for your property’s assessed value online at BC Assessment. Property owners can expect their assessments in the mail in the next few days. If you have an issue with your assessment, such as a disagreement over the value or a mistake, you can contact BC Assessment. Assessor Tracy Wall encouraged residents to do so by the end of January. “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,” she said. The Property Assessment Review Panels, independent of BC Assessment, are appointed annually by the Ministry of Community, Sport and Cultural Development.

City council set to give final reading to new anti-smoking bylaw Alex Cooper

reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

Want to open a Hookah bar in Revelstoke? That won't be possible under the rules of an anti-smoking bylaw that was set to go before council at its meeting on Tuesday. The Clean Air Amendment Bylaw was set for third reading at council's first meeting of 2013 on

Jan. 8. It includes modified language set out by an air quality specialist with Interior Health. The changes, as outlined in a report from staff, changes the definition of "smoke" and "smoking" to include substances that do not fall under the Tobacco Control Act, including shisha which is smoked in Hookah pipes. Hookah's are water pipes that are

common in mid-eastern countries and are becoming more popular in bars throughout North America. The revised bylaw, which is set for third and final reading, defines smoking as "to inhale, exhale, burn, or carry a lighted cigarette, cigar, pipe, hookah pipe or other lighted smoking equipment that burns tobacco or other weed or substance."

The bylaw would ban smoking inside all public buildings or "within a building open to the public whether by invite or through business operation." The bylaw also bans smoking within eight metres of the entrance of any public building, inside any vehicles and equipment owned by the city; near playgrounds, beaches and playing fields; at the cemetery,

and during outdoor special events. The penalty is a fine of up to $200. The bylaw, first proposed in August 2011, has been moderated from its initial proposal, which sought to prohibit smoking almost everywhere, including on sidewalks. The bylaw is being promoted by the city’s Advisory Committee on Health Care.

New website brings more interactivity to Chamber of Commerce ALEX COOPER

reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

The Revelstoke Chamber of Commerce has a brand new website, taking it out of the days of it’s old, static site, to a new one that’s far more interactive and flexible. The new website contains a brand new look, a more robust business directory, a new calendar and interactive members service such as Idea Vote. “It’s a much needed update,” said Judy Goodman, the executive director of the chamber. “As you know, our site hasn’t been updated for a long time.” The site was developed by social media marketing expert Jean-Marc LaFlamme and developer Derek Marcinyshyn. It uses a Wordpress platform as it’s base, making it easier to use and manage. “Even I can go in and update things, which is pretty amazing,” said Goodman. The site’s home page features a search for the business directory, a listing of upcoming chamber events, weather and snow information, links to social media, and more. The calendar is one of the key changes. Developed by The Seed network out of Nelson, it is one of the leading Wordpress-based calendars in the world, and provides multiple levels of functionality. Anyone

can add an event to it, and listings can be categorized so if someone is only looking for upcoming concerts, they can highlight only that. It imports and exports events to Facebook and can be synched to your smart phone. “They’re now the number one WordPress calendar out there and we’re pretty happy to be using that here,” said LaFlamme. “Hopefully that will be a centre point of a lot of activity that goes on in Revelstoke, whether it’s events, deals, sales, meetings, and onwards and upwards.” Another key element is the revised business directory, which will allow businesses to include more information and photos to their listing. It’s also fully searchable so, for example, entering ‘yoga’ will pull up local yoga studios. “It’s more robust than what we had before,” said Goodman. If a business doesn’t have a website, their business directory listing will show up at the top of web searches, ahead of other third-party directories, said LaFlamme. For chamber members, a host of interactive services has been included. A members-only online forum has been added to the site as a place for people to share business ideas and provide and receive feedback. “We’ll have a member sign in so

we can actually now communicate on a different level with our members,” said Goodman. “Members can talk to each other.” Members will also be able to post polls to get the opinion of other business people. Goodman hopes this will inspire more members to log in and interact with the

Chamber. “It could be something like, ‘Do you think dealing with planning is an easy process?’ or ‘Do you think we should have more retail promotions during the year?’” said Goodman. “Our goal is to have our members more interactive and find out what our members want from us.

What can we do for you? When I talk to a member one on one I almost always get something from them. If we can expand that to make it really easy for people to talk to each other, I think it will be great.” Visit www.revelstokechamber. com to check it out.

Dog killed in 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 www.terrierman. com/traprelease.htm

LETTERS POLICY

In 1988, hundreds of scientists and policy-makers met in Toronto for a major international conference on climate change. They were sufficiently alarmed by the accumulated evidence for humancaused global warming that they issued a release stating, “Humanity is conducting an unintended, uncontrolled, globally pervasive experiment whose ultimate consequences could be second only to a global nuclear war.” They urged world leaders to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 20 per cent by 2005. Had we heeded that warning and embarked on a campaign to meet the target, Canadians would now be healthier (because of reduced air pollution), have greater reserves of energy and more jobs. We’d also be a world leader in renewable energy and could have saved tens of billions of dollars. The year was significant for environmentalists. In 1988, George H.W. Bush ran for the highest office in the U.S. and promised to be an “environmental president”. He didn’t have a green bone in his body, but public pressure compelled him to make a commitment he ultimately didn’t keep. That year, Margaret Thatcher was filmed picking up litter. She turned to the camera

and said, “I’m a greenie, too.” Canada’s Prime Minister Brian Mulroney was also re-elected in 1988. He appointed a bright new political star, Lucien Bouchard, as environment minister. I asked Bouchard during an interview what he considered to be our most important environmental issue. “Global warming,” he responded. I continued: “How serious is it?” His answer: “It threatens the survival of our species. We have to act now.” In 1988, the environment was a top public concern, scientists spoke out and politicians said the right things. Global warming was a pressing and present issue. Now, 25 years later, carbon dioxide emissions continue to rise, and we’re already seeing the consequences – more extreme weather events, melting glaciers and Arctic ice, rising sea levels, reduced water flows in rivers and climate-related illness and death, among others. It’s driven in part by rapid economic growth in countries like China, India and Brazil. At the same time, most industrialized nations, whose use of fossil fuels created the problem of excess greenhouse gases, have done little to reduce emissions. Humans are distinguished from other species by a massive brain that enables us to imagine a future and influence it by what we do in the present. By using experience, knowledge and insight, our ancestors recognized they could anticipate dangers and opportunities and take steps to exploit advantages and avoid hazards. Scientists and supercomputers have amplified our ability to look ahead. For decades, experts have warned us that human numbers, technology, hyper-consumption and a global economy are altering the chemical, geological and biological properties of the biosphere.

In 1992, more than 1,700 eminent scientists, including 104 Nobel prizewinners, signed the “World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity”, which included this urgent warning: “No more than one or a few decades remain before the chance to avert the threats we now confront will be lost and the prospects for humanity immeasurably diminished.” The document concluded that environmentally damaging activity must be brought under control and the integrity of Earth’s ecosystems protected, critical resources managed more effectively, human population growth stabilized, poverty reduced and eventually eliminated, and sexual equality and guarantees of women’s reproductive rights ensured. The sooner we act, the easier it will be to overcome these difficult challenges. Every year that we stall makes it more costly and challenging, with increasing negative impacts on humans and our environment. There are signs of hope. Many countries – as well as cities, states and provinces – are taking global warming seriously and are working to reduce emissions and shift to cleaner energy sources. Some world leaders are even questioning our current paradigm, where the economy is made a priority above all else. This is crucial. Over and over, the economy has determined the extent of our response, but how much value does it place on breathable air, drinkable water, edible food and stable weather and climate? Surely the economy is the means to a better future, not an end in itself. Surely it must be subordinate to a rich, diverse ecosphere that sustains all life. Let’s hope this year ushers in a new way of living on and caring for our planet. Learn more at www.davidsuzuki.org.

certified instructors by the end of February.” With a $1500 grant received through Rotary International, they’re also in the process of purchasing communication headsets for skiers and instructors. This system will help an adaptive skier to communicate with a coach following behind.

250-837-5225

As we look back on Rotary’s accomplishments for 2012, hosting the ISFR (International Skiing Fellowship of Rotarians) in February will probably rank highly because of the legacy it has left behind for Revelstoke athletes, and particularly those with a disability. Scott Lebuke, Revelstoke Rotary Club’s “go-to” person for ISFR, and Izzy Lynch, the Executive Director for the Live It, Love It Foundation helped me better understand the initiative to start an adaptive skiing program in Revelstoke. Both are now involved in Revelstoke Adaptive Snow Sports (RAD). The fledgling group is now working to build a program  to help amputees, and those with blindness, spinal cord injuries, developmental challenges, and other disabilities, to have the opportunity to ski. First question: what does ISFR stand for, and what they have to do with adaptive skiing in Revelstoke? “The ISFR stands for International Skiing Fellowship of Rotarians. In Rotary, we have many different fellowships for groups of Rotarians with a common interest – in this case, ISFR members’ common interest is skiing, and they get together once a year at a resort,” Scott tells me. ISFR in Revelstoke hosted about 75 skiing Rotarians from around North America. They’ve also recently been to Sunshine, Fernie, and Whistler, and this coming February, they meet in Telluride, Colorado. Although they might sound like die-hards, “these are not hardcore skiers,” Scott explains. “They just enjoy doing a couple runs a day. It’s meant to be more of a social week, and skiing is secondary. The other common interest is to fundraise for a charity of their liking – in this case, it’s adaptive skiing.”

Bob Fournier, Community Chairperson for Revelstoke Rotary Club, presents Izzy Lynch with a $1500 cheque from Rotary International. Revelstoke Rotary successfully applied for an RI grant to provide RAD with communications equipment. So where does skiing fit in?

adaptive

To help raise seed capital for the adaptive ski program here in Revelstoke, the week included a gala event, with silent and live auctions, Scott explains. “Greg Hill donated a signed photograph of one of his mountain ascents in the area, and Skookum Cycle and Skis also donated a signed pair of his signature skis.” These two items alone raised about $3000; the whole ISFR event in Revelstoke raised $20,000.” Half of that went directly to Revelstoke’s adaptive program through RAD, and the other half to the David Boyd Memorial Fund, which distributes funds to established adaptive sport programs. Revelstoke’s program will be able to apply to the fund once it’s up and running. A little more about RAD, and the Live It, Love It Foundation... Scott is Revelstoke Rotary Club’s liaision to the Board. The board’s job is to find a use for the funds that were entrusted to us by ISFR to support adaptive skiing, and to engage those with disabilities and get them involved in RAD’s programming. Revelstoke resident Izzy Lynch is the Executive Director for the Live It, Love It Foundation. Speaking with Izzy, you can tell that sports and the outdoors are in her blood. She goes

on to tell me of the life event that caused her and a close friend, Jeff Scott, to found the Live It, Love It Foundation a year and a half ago. In 2010, Jeff was made a quadriplegic after a snowboarding accident at RMR on the last day of the season. He spent months in Vancouver recovering after. “I was at the G.F. Strong Rehabilitation Centre in Vancouver with Jeff, and I met so many people with injuries from sport.” Izzy says. “These people were feeling so disconnected from the outdoors. It was tough to see them separated from a world they were, just a short time ago, so much a part of. Getting outdoors is therapeutic, and we wanted to give them a platform to get involved in adaptive adventure.” The foundation’s mission is to promote adaptive adventure, and to provide outdoor recreation opportunities for the disabled, including those with disabilities that might not otherwise be able to afford it.   “I kind of stumbled upon Izzy,” Scott explains of Rotary’s connection to Live It, Love It. “My second cousin, who was injured in a biking accident knew Izzy through Live It, Love It. When I discovered she lived in Revelstoke, we got together to talk about starting an adaptive skiing program. Before we knew it, we ended up  with a board of eleven members, and $10,000 of seed capital.” RAD is currently sourcing out where best to invest its energy and resources in order to be completely ready for the next ski season. While they aren’t ruling out moving into other outdoor adaptive sports over time, the initial mandate is to provide instruction for nordic and alpine adaptive skiers. “We’re sending a team to Panorama to become certified as adaptive ski instructors,” Izzy explains, “and we’ll have five

RAD’s program is still in its infancy, but RMR has been receptive to doing things to make the resort and the properties more accessible to adaptive skiiers, Scott remarks. While becoming fully accessible to adaptive skiers will take time (one has to consider the various services of a ski resort, from parking, to food services, to equipment storage, to lifts, and imagine, for instance, accessing those all in a wheelchair)  RMR General Manager,  Rob Elliott, has expressed an openness to options that make the resort more adaptive-friendly. What is the biggest challenge RAD is facing? Some might think it’s money. As a non-profit organization, it’s always nice to have more funds. But believe it or not, the challenge so far is actually engaging potential clients with a disability. One thing Scott and Izzy both express is that RAD has an open door to helping anyone in the community with a disability get involved in snow sports. To date, RAD has a handful of clients. RAD is working to purchase a sit-ski specifically for a young man who is confined to a wheelchair. That client, whose parents are also involved in RAD’s Board, has remarked “that skiing was something he never thought he’d be able to do.” RAD also has one nordic skiing client, and they’re currently working to modify nordic equipment to be more usable by a variety of different nordic skiers and abilities. We also now have a certified adaptive nordic instructor. In 2013, RAD will be fundraising to purchase new equipment to support adaptive skiers. Kimberley native, and Paralympic freeskiing silver medalist Josh Dueck will be coming to town to donate his time to help fundraise. If you have a disability, or someone you know does, and you would like to explore what RAD has to offer, please contact Izzy Lynch  (izzy@liveitloveit.org) or Scott Lebuke (drscott@ revelstokedental.com). The RAD board meets once per month at Revelstoke Dental Centre.

Revelstoke ranks near top of province’s socio-economic index

Trapper proposes new signs after dog’s death from page 5

Alex Cooper

reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

Revelstoke once again ranks near the top of province in a ranking of socio-economic indices collected by BC Stats. According to the 2011 provincial socio-economic index, Revelstoke ranks as the eighth best health area in the province. The index ranks health regions by human economic hardship, crime, health, education, and risk factors for children and youth. It combines that data to create an overall ranking. BC Stats has been issuing the data since 2004. That year, Revelstoke

ranked 14th in British Columbia. The following year Revelstoke moved into the top 10, where it has stayed ever since. “This is a ‘good news’ story for Revelstoke,” wrote Alan Mason, the city’s director of economic development, in a report to council. “The ranking is based on measurable data that is collected by various provincial agencies, and shows that our community compares favourably to other local health areas in the province. “This also reflects very well on the numerous agencies in the community, including local government, that work to improve socio-economic conditions for local residents.”

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. Signs he has put up have been knocked down too, but by humans. 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 tampering with government signage has greater consequences.

Snow storm delays FWT competition Times Review staff

The snow storm that rolled into the region Saturday afternoon forced the delay of the Freeride World Tour competition to at least Tuesday, and likely later if the weather forecast held true. There was no word on when the competition would take place as of the Times Review’s Monday press time. Organizers have set aside until Saturday, Jan. 12, as weather days. Based on the Environment Canada weather forecast, the competition is not likely to start until at least Wednesday, Jan. 9. The forecast calls for a 60 per cent chance of flurries every day from Wednesday to Saturday. The competition, and the Freeride Fest running alongside it, did get off to a good start. The Biglines.com Freeride Fest kick off party at the Big Eddy Pub was sold out, and a solid crowd filled the Revelstoke Mountain Resort plaza for the tour’s official opening ceremonies Sunday evening. When the competition does take place, the male snowboarders will kick things off, followed by the male skiers, female snowboarders and female skiers. Revelstoke’s Rylan Kappler will be starting third amongst the skiers.

Award here, he was given the only local wild card spot available. “I don’t feel like I did much for it but it feels good for sure,” he said after the ceremonies. “I’m a lot more nervous than I was last year. It’s the most nervous I’ve ever been on my life.” Kappler grew up as a freestyle mogul skier, training with his father Trent and frequently winning junior events. He competed in his first Freeski World Tour event in 2011, making it through the qualifiers but he failed to make into the finals and wound up 30th. Last year, Kappler made it through qualifying and came out

of day one of the finals in North Bowl in ninth place. In the finals, on the Mac Daddy face, he skied a solid, if somewhat uneven line and finished the competition in 15th spot. His goal is to improve on last year’s ranking. “It’s just going to be insane this year. I want to step it up a little bit and take it more seriously,” he said. “There’s lots of crazy French people and Europeans. I’ve never seen them ski but it’s going to be exciting to see everybody go.” Kappler is set to start third amongst the male skiers. The male skiers will be the second group to run the course, after the male snowboarders.

Willhorse gives southern rock a northern twist JESSICA SCHWITEK Black Press

One of Golden's favourite bands is coming back to Revelstoke, hot off the heals of a successful CD release show in their hometown last month. "I  think it's every musician's dream to have one (an album). Just to hold it and be like, this is mine. I created this," said lead singer Jeremy Borschneck. Willhorse, although its members have played together for years, has only been around for less than a year. And what a year it has been. The southern rock influenced indie band also features Branden Winterholt on guitar and vocals, Nick Petrowich playing the drums and singing backing vocals, as well as Todd Menzies on bass. "(Winterholt) and I are cousins, and we toured together for about two and a half years acoustic, just the two of us," said Borschneck, reminiscing about the band came into being. "And then we met (Petrowich) at a gig. We were playing in Swift Current. "When I saw them play, it was just the two of them sitting on chairs on this big stage with two acoustic guitars. And people were up dancing to it. I thought these guys were so cool, I should go talk to them. I was a musician, playing with another band and thought I should branch out. And we just hit it off," said Petrowich. Since then, the three have been playing together under different names and different bands. They

took a bit of a hiatus, and Borschneck moved to Golden to start his business, the Crooked Antler. "I had decided to move out here, and explore this part of the world, and I noticed that there was music happening here every night of the week pretty much. So I called these guys and convinced them to come down," he said. "I was working in Edmonton, and I’d get calls from (Borschneck), and he’d be like ‘it’s so great, you’ve got to come down here.’ You don't expect it to be as good as it is until you get here,” said Petrowich. “I've always lived in cities, nowhere as small as Golden. But it doesn't seem that small because there's always people coming through, and great culture and great shows." The writing process is a very collaborative process for Willhorse. They each try to bring in their own individual flavours, and hopefully put it all together to come up with something special. “If any of us write a song we bring it to the band and then we all work on it together. But individually we will all sit down and write music,” said Borschneck. "You can't get possessive over your writing in a band. It should be like a big pot, you throw it all in the middle and share it," said Winterholt. Wanting an album for years, and never being able to make it happen, Willhorse came up with a plan a few months back. They began a donation campaign to help make this dream a reality.

It worked better than they ever imagined. "We initially wanted $3,000, and we got that in 24 hours. We ended up getting almost $7,000," said Borschneck. This allowed them to press more CDs, and do the mixing at the famed Fader Mountain Studios in Vancouver. "Nick was curious, as he always is, so he looked it up. It turned out that Fader Mountain evolved out of Little Mountain which was one of the most sought after recording studios in North America. Guys like Aerosmith, Bon Jovi and Metallica recorded in those rooms," said Winterholt. "There was definitely a vibe when we were in there." Prior to mixing the tracks at Fader, the boys spent eight days recording at the Blaeberry Mountain Lodge with producer JP Maurice. "It was really fun. The eight days in the cabin got a little bit hazy. We didn't really know what day it was, it was just five dudes in a cabin for eight days. But it was a blast," said Borschneck. The final product of that cabinfever session is a 10-track release featuring their signature old-fashioned southern rock that fans has come to love so much. CBC Radio and EZ Rock have already began broadcasting their songs. Willhorse played 23 dates in December, including a show at the Big Eddy Pub, and are now back in Revelstoke, this time hitting up the Last Drop this Friday, Jan. 11, at 9 p.m.

To all of the volunteers who donated time, talents, and food, your support and genuine fellowship is sincerely appreciated! Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! To the individuals who made donations and wished to remain anonymous, thank you … your generosity will allow this very special day of fellowship to be repeated next year.

Revelstoke Nordic Ski Club

On Saturday, Dec. 29, the Revelstoke Nordic Ski Club held a test race to prepare volunteers and the timing system for the March 2-3 Teck Midget Championships, which will see provincial champions crowned in the 9- 12-year-old age groups. The club has already been preparing for the championships and this dry run showed the club where more volunteers are needed and where some streamlining of procedures can occur. About 220 athletes and their fam-

ilies will converge on Revelstoke for the weekend of events. Races will be classic race, sprint race and a relay. After today’s practice race, Revelstoke Nordic Coach Matt Smider commented: “The coolest thing about today’s race was the fact that Revelstoke athletes of all ages competed together and showed great sportsmanship towards each other. This club has tremendous team spirit and it was wonderful seeing them gel together at the event.” Results from the time trials can be found at www.zone4.ca. Penny Page-Brittin, volunteer

Grizzlies go 2-1 in first weekend after Christmas break Team acquires local defenseman Aiden Silzer-Hooker ahead of trade deadline Alex Cooper

reporter@revelstoketimesreview.com

The Revelstoke Grizzlies emerged from the Christmas break on a winning note, beating the Sicamous Eagles and Spokane Braves before falling to the Beaver Valley Nitehawks The Grizzlies started the weekend with a 4-3 win over the rival Sicamous Eagles in front of a season-high 480 fans at the Forum on Friday. Darnel St. Pierre, Dallas Flockhart and Brayden Beckley scored in the first period to give Revelstoke an early 3-0 lead. Michael Bell and Brendan Devries responded for Sicamous in the second, making it a onegoal game going into the third. That’s when Austin Donaldson scored one of the nicest goals of the season for the Grizzlies. With the Grizzlies short handed, he managed to get in on a partial breakaway. The Sicamous defense got up, but Donaldson spun around and roofed a backhander past a shocked Sicamous goaltender. “It was a very good individual goal,” said coach Kevin Kraus. “He showed some very good patience with the puck and showed some skill. Good on him. It would be nice if I could see that more often.” Brayden Taekema would score for the Eagles to make it 4-3 but that was as close as they would get. Aaron Brandoli made 39 saves in the Revelstoke net for the win. “Coming off the break, I brought my kids back early and made sure we had a good week of practice before the weekend,” said Kraus. “I know coming back off breaks there’s still a bit of turkey in the system still. We had a hard week of battle practices and made sure we played physical against Sicamous because they have a very skilled team. “We just worked on that and made sure we were prepared to

battle.” On Saturday, the Grizzlies travelled south of the border to Spokane to take on the Braves. Beckley and Dylan Ossman both scored twice, and Donaldson and Tyler Reay added goals in a 6-4 Revelstoke win. With Brandoli being rested and backup Conrad Macmillan unable to enter the United States, AP goalie Harison Whitlock got the start, turning aside 40 saves for the win. On Sunday, the long weekend continued in Beaver Valley, where Revelstoke – with three players injured – emerged at the wrong end of a 8-2 shellacking. TJ Christensen and Jordan Holloway scored for Revelstoke in the loss. “We were short manned and we were tired and it showed in the score for sure,” said Kraus. “Beaver Valley seemed to be hitting on all cylinders.” The trade deadline is this Thursday, Jan. 10, and Kraus said he is looking to make a move to bolster the forward group, particularly after losing leading goal scorer Spencer Samuel and vet-

eran forward Devon Hascarl. “I would like to add a forward with losing Samuel and Hascarl, but everyone is looking for a top six forward, so it’s kind of tough,” he said. He did make one move last week, acquiring local defenseman Aiden Silzer-Hooker from the Chase Heat. “Getting Aiden gives us more depth on the back end,” said Kraus. “He’s young, he can still play here for another three years after this season so it was also a move for the future.” Silzer-Hooker picked up an assist against Beaver Valley for his first point as a Grizzly. This weekend the Grizzlies host the Eagles on Friday and the North Okanagan Knights on Saturday. Kraus said the team will have to crack down defensively to win. “The last times we’ve played these two teams, we’ve beat them,” he said. “They’re going to come into our rink hungry so our guys need to be ready to play well and play good defense.”

Tier 4 Peewee Grizzlies win Tier 3 hockey tournament JArrett Spannier

Revelstoke Minor Hockey

Revelstoke’s Peewee Grizzlies team celebrates after winning a tournament in West Kelowna last weekend. Photo contributed

Revelstoke’s Tier 4 Peewee hockey team travelled to West Kelowna to compete in the Westside Warriors’ Tier 3 hockey tournament from Dec. 28-30. The 13 boys who attended the tournament gave the other teams a taste of Revelstoke hockey and were a dominant force to be reckoned with. The all-around team effort saw every skater score at least one goal over the five games in the tournament. Game one of the tournament saw goaltender Noah Newsome backstop the team to an 8-5 victory over their league rivals the North Okanagan Knights. Player of the game

honours went to Ben MacDonald for his hat trick and hustler of the game went to Harrison Fenwick. In game two Revelstoke pounded the Summerland Jets 9-0, with player of the game honours going to Raymond Speerbrecker and hustler of the game to Jake Leeder. To close out round-robin play, the Peewee Grizzlies defeated the host Westside Warriors 10-3, with player of the game honours going to Jeremy Scarcella and hustler of the game to William MacDonald. The first place ranking earned the Grizzlies a return match-up with the Summerland Jets, who the Grizzlies defeated 14-3 on Sunday morning. Player of the game honours went to Nic Sakiyama (hat

trick) with hustler of the game to Rylan Bokis. The win set up a re-match in the final with the North Okanagan Knights. Defenseman Tyson Marsh set the tone for the final match, scoring with a shot from the point 30 seconds into the first period. Goaltender Spencer Spannier then shut the door on the Knights as the Revelstoke Grizzlies cruised to a 7-1 win to take the tournament crown. Matt Cadden earned player of the game, with hustler of the game going to Rory ChristieHoyle. The boys only have a couple days to savor the victory as they will be challenging themselves in the Salmon Arm tier 3 Pee-wee tournament from Jan. 4-6.

Ramsay MacDonald (Don) Segur Born: Oct. 29, 1924 Passed: Sept. 26, 2012

Married to Joan Frances Segur (nee Cutler) for 60 years. Husband, Father, Grandfather Great-grandfather, Sports Fan and Fisherman Don will be missed by his wife Joan, sister Delphine Carrell; children Trudy (Mike) Skands, Patti (Randy) Turner, Laurie (Ed) Mannings, Joanne Segur, and Don Segur; grand children, Jennifer (Andrew), Jeff (Diana), Jacqueline (Eric), Nicole, Lee, Jason, Michelle, Jamie, Sam and Andrea; greatgrandchildren Jeremy, Justin, Reese, and Karsyn; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and friends. He was predeceased by his brother Vincent (Billy) Segur. Don was born in Golden to Marjorie and Vincent (Bill) Segur. He grew up in Revelstoke and was always busy with his sister Delphine at the Revelstoke YMCA. In high school he was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Call Boyâ&#x20AC;? for the CPR. He joined the Air Force at the age of 17 and was sent overseas. Upon his return he worked as a plumber for Stuart Burridge. He moved with his wife Joan and family to Nelson in 1958 where he worked with CP Rail and West Kootenay Power as a plumber and pipeÂżtter. Don was an especially kind and generous man with a dry sense of humor that was enjoyed by everyone. He was an athlete, enjoying gymnastics, baseball, basketball and ski jumping and was an exceptionally passionate Âżsherman. He rarely missed a game on t.v., and over the years he coached gymnastics and rowing. Watching his children and grandchildren play sports was high on his list of priorities.

Taylor Fowlie would like to announce the engagement and forthcoming wedding of his mommy and daddy, Jesse Powell, daughter of JR Powell and Lynda Davy of Revelstoke, to Matt Fowlie, son of Mike and Lisa Fowlie of Revelstoke, BC. Both families would like to congratulate the future bride and groom and wish them a lifetime of love and happiness.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s family would like to thank Dr. J. Noiles, for his many years of friendship and exceptional care, and the staff of Mountain Lakes, in Falcon Ridge Cottage, for their abundance of loving care and incredible support over the past 4 months. As an expression of sympathy, family and friends may make a donation to: B.C. Kidney Foundation https://www.kidney.ca or Kootenay Lake Hospital Foundation http://www.klhf.org A celebration of life will be held at a later date.
