Cremation facility running in Creston BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

It has been a long wait, but Creston now offers a complete range of funeral services. A crematorium built by G.F. Oliver Funeral Chapel Ltd. opened quietly in December on Hurry Road property east of Highway 21. “The biggest step was to acquire the land, which was owned by the Town of Creston,” manager Dennis Kemle said last week. “This has been a twoyear project, but it has been worth the effort. Mayor Ron Toyota and the town staff have been supportive from the beginning.” The quarter-million-dollar investment means the deceased no longer have to be transported to Cranbrook for cremation, saving on time and transportation costs. Inside what looks like a neat and tidy garage is a natural gas-fired cremation chamber. The chamber — six feet wide, seven feet high and 16 feet long — reaches temperatures of 1,600-1,800 C. A sophisticated ventilation and retort system results in an ultra-clean burn — only a slight amount of heat and moisture escapes from the chimney.

Valley brings deeper meaning to artist’s work

Who: Laura Leeder What: Watercolour artist Where: Erickson When: For the last 15-18 years Why: “I was always looking for a release and that creative side of me kept coming out.”

BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff Take a close look at her paintings of still life and flowers and “self taught” is not a descriptor likely to pop into mind. But Erickson waterclour painter Laura Leeder picked up her distinctive painting techniques almost entirely from books and trial and error. There is a warmth and calmness to her finely detailed works that invites the viewer into a world that seems ever so slightly kinder and more welcoming. And the details keep drawing one’s eye further and further into her compositions. “I actually set up my still life compositions by taking the objects outside so I can get the strong shadows and light,” she says. “Then I take a bunch of digital shots that I can load onto the computer right away and I can check and see if I’m happy with it or not.” She then enlarges photographs to the size of the painting she plans and makes an outline of the elements that is eventually transferred to watercolour paper. Those elements are often adjusted as she paints — leaf shapes might be changed and details are added or deleted as she deems necessary. Some works use paint that has mica crystals that reflect the light, adding an almost magical quality to the surface. “There are a lot of steps involved,” she admits. “I use only transparent watercolours — they’re not opaque so I can put on many, many light layers of colour to create the depth I’m looking for. This technique is

known as glazing and through its use I can also achieve rich, luminous color. “Some of the pencil lines are erased as I go along and others stay — I really don’t mind that. It shows how I work.” While her finished work looks completely natural, she changes and adjusts the colours of the objects as she works. “I tend to exaggerate the colours because in the end I want the painting to attract you, not to be a perfect rendition of what I started with. It’s all about the use of colours and their blending.” Some of Leeder’s most recognizable pieces depict teacups.

She painted a series of her favourite objects at the invitation of Creston Museum manager Tammy Hardwick, who organizes a fundraiser tea on the museum’s grounds each year. Originals, reproductions and greeting cards of the images have travelled around the world and even found their way into TeaTime magazine, a U.S. publication. The teacup theme also helped her to get involved with Debbie Graham’s annual Pink Garden Tea, a cancer fundraiser. A portion of sales made through the tea goes to support local cancer programs and patients, and

Leeder’s painting, The Power Of Pink, was created specifically for the tea. Her paintings are in private collections throughout Canada, Japan and the U.S. Several paintings were purchased by the University of Alberta Hospital in Edmonton and placed in private family care rooms. Leeder works in an above ground-basement studio in the home she shares with her husband, Ivor, and beloved Yorkshire terrier, Kenya. The view to the south brings the Creston Valley right to her doorstep, reminding her of the gratitude she feels for having relocated from Edmonton. She has painted for less than 20 years, but she has always had a creative side. “As a child I created Barbie doll furniture and clothing for myself and my friends.” A career in business at Edmonton International Airport, where she ran the tax and dutyfree shop and bonded warehouse didn’t allow for much artistic expression, but she credits it for helping her to learn “the marketing end of business” that has helped her in what she now considers to be a full-time painting career. “After a good 18 years I left the job just because it was taking over all of my time. I was tired and I wanted a change.” She went to work for a Mary Kay cosmetics director, helping her set up a home office and create monthly newsletters. It was in that job that she learned the computer skills that are now an integral asset to both her art designs and the marketing of her work. “But over the years as I was working I was always looking for a release and that creative side of me kept coming out,” she recalls. “I picked up watercolour painting only because my husband used to be an oil painter. He had this interest in starting up again so I said, ‘Well, I’ll go out and buy you some paints to get you started.’ I had no idea what the cost was and I had no idea whether he was going to do it. So I bought him some cheap watercolour paints and brushes.” The paints and brushes sat there and eventually Leeder “began picking them up and playing with them. The combination of the paint and the water and movement was so interest-

ing to me. So I started to do more and more of it.” She was drawn to still life because of her love of gardening, a passion she got from her mother. Gradually she started to become a painter. She learned by experiment and through books. After coming home from long days at work, the last thing she wanted to do was to hop back into the car and fight traffic to take lessons and workshops. She took one or two workshops, finally, about 10 years ago, but has also taken advantage of the Internet for ideas and instructions. “Mostly I’ve learned through trial and error, though. Through years of painting and maturity I started to find myself and learn what I really wanted to do. “When I moved to Creston my paintings took on a deeper meaning. They have become a way to celebrate not only the beauty of the area we live in, but also the objects we use in our daily lives. Many of the objects in my paintings, such as the teacups and vases are vintage and bring their own story into my work. I also include vintage lace and this adds another layer. My love for this valley is shown by including fruit from local orchards along with the produce and flowers grown here. “I have also started to include pottery made by local artisans. One of my paintings includes a bowl made by local potter Andrea Revoy. The painting I am currently working on includes a raku bowl by a Nelson potter. There are a few other Creston area potters whose work I want to include in my paintings, as well. Not only can I have fun with my paintings but I can help promote the work of other artists.” “I want people to feel the joy in my work I want to create beautiful art that has meaning to people and that touches their lives in some way.” Leeder’s blog is at lauraleeder. and her website is www. Her works can be found for sale online at She is currently working on pieces that will become part of the Summer in the Kootenays show at Cranbrook’s Key City Theatre in April. Joining her in that show will be Creston mixed media artists Win Dinn and Elaine Gidman and nature photographer Jim Lawrence.

RCMP reward good behaviour BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff Staff Sgt. Bob Gollan believes that positive reinforcement can be an important tool in policing, and a handful of local residents have received tickets to Creston Valley Thunder Cats games as a result. Gollan, commander of the Creston RCMP detachment, coaches Prince Charles Secondary School girls volleyball and is the president of the Thunder Cats junior hockey team executive. “Directors get tickets to home games and I pass mine on to (RCMP) members,” he said. “They are instructed to pass them on to people they find to be acting responsible.” Some drivers who have been stopped at police road checks have been lucky recipients. So was a young man who called for a ride after he had too much to drink, as was his mother, who showed up to drive him home. “This encourages positive interaction between police and the public, and maybe someone who doesn’t usually go to a game will take someone with them, or go back for more games because they enjoyed the experience,” he said on Monday. “This seems like a good thing for everyone involved.” Police Beat Creston RCMP responded to 58 calls for service from Jan. 21-27, Gollan said. January 21 •Swerving in front of another vehicle and causing a minor crash on Canyon Street brought some unwanted attention to the offending driver. He left the scene with tickets for driving without insurance, misuse of a licence plate and failing to produce his driver’s licence. •When police responded to a residential alarm on Erickson, they found the female resident wasn’t wearing her hearing aids and couldn’t hear the alarm. Fortunately, there was no cause for alarm. •Police served a subpoena to a Fourth Street residence on behalf of Lethbridge police. •An abusive student at the high school resulted in a call for police help. •A group of more than a dozen

youths was reported to have passed by a Seventh Avenue North residence, with one of them causing a small amount of damage by punching a shed. The youths were gone when police arrived. •A well-being check on a Scott Street residence was inconclusive as the resident was not at home. •A 911 call summoned police to a Centre Road resident, where a fatherson dispute was under way. •Police were unable to locate a possibly impaired driver near the Highway 3/3A intersection. •No trace could be made of a 911 call in this, the first of a half-dozen similar untraceable emergency calls last week. January 22 •A vehicle struck a concrete pillar near Canyon Street, resulting in damage but no injuries. •A Hillside Street resident reported that a “secret shopper” scam led to the receipt of a bogus check, which the resident did not fall for. •A shoplifter was caught at a business in the 1600 block of Canyon Street. •A Cedar Street resident reporting getting threatening text messages from an unknown source. •The day after minor damage in a hit and run was noticed in a Cavell Street parking lot, the offending driver reported the incident. January 23 •A very early morning complaint about a loud diesel truck on 10th Avenue North was received. •A Crestview Road resident reported that an unknown person had opened three credit cards in his name. •Responding to an Internet popup survey led a Corn Creek Road resident into being informed that a “free gift” was being sent, one that would cost $140 if it was not returned by the end of a trial date. The resident’s credit card provider agreed to cancel the payment. •Icy roads led to an eastbound vehicle on Highway 3 losing control on a corner and sliding into a semi trailer. The driver sustained minor injuries. •An eastbound vehicle on Highway 3/95 collided with a concrete barrier when the driver misjudged a corner in icy conditions. No injuries were reported. January 24 •A semi went into a ditch on

Highway 3 north of Yahk, but no injures resulted. •A coroner’s investigation is underway to determine the cause of death of a 22-year-old male on West Creston Road. The death is not considered to be suspicious. •Both vehicles were damaged in a sideswipe crash on an icy Highway 3. •Police were called to an assault on Centre Road by an out of control youth. •Footprints were reported around a Hillside Street residence, the owners of which are away. No signs of a break-in could be found. •A driver who ran the border at Kingsgate was located in Cranbrook and returned to the border crossing. January 25 •Mischief causing damage under $5,000 was reported on Erickson Road. •An Erickson Road resident reported receiving unwanted calls from an ex-boyfriend. •A well-being check on a West Creston Road resident revealed him to be in medical distress. He was transported to hospital. •An idling semi was the cause of a complaint from Canyon Street. •A breach of a no alcohol condition was reported from Elm Street. January 26 •Threats were made through a cellphone on 33rd Avenue North. •A male who wandered away wearing only a gown was returned to the hospital. •One participant in a fight in the 1600 block of Canyon Street refused to co-operate with police.

Thunder Cats beat Braves, lose to Ghostriders BY BRIAN LAWRENCE Advance Editor

After tying for last place in their division a week ago, the Creston Valley Thunder Cats pulled a point ahead of the Columbia Valley Rockies when they beat the Spokane Braves 5-4 on Saturday, a day after losing 4-2 to the Fernie Ghostriders. “We played a really good game,” said head coach Josh Hepditch of Friday loss on the road. “We outshot them 36-27, we were leading twonothing after 40 minutes and put ourselves in a good spot to win.” The Thunder Cats started the scoring with goals by Matthew Murray and Ryan Murray in the first period, which led to a scoreless second. In the third period, players kept in the penalty box too long for minor penalties kept the Thunder Cats from scoring, but the Ghostriders scored four times, three during power plays. “We battled to the end and tried our best but unfortunately came up shorthanded,” said Hepditch. He gave credit to goalie Zach Straza, who has been playing well while Tyler Moffatt is out with an injury, and Ryan Murray, who earned two points for a goal and an assist. “He’s been playing well since he came back from Christmas,” Hepditch said. The next night, the Thunder Cats hosted the Spokane Braves, who scored three goals — two on a power play and one shorthanded — in the first nine minutes. “We had one of our inconsistent starts,” said Hepditch. “We were down three-nothing before we knew it.” The Thunder Cats followed the Braves’ three with power-play goals by Connor Kidd and Tyler Akeroyd. Both teams scored once in the second period, with Trevor Hanna netting a power-play goal at 0:46, and Matti Jmaeff tied the score 4-4 with a goal at 11:34 in the third period. It took until the second overtime period for the outcome to be decided. Jesse Collins faked a pass to Jmaeff, which the Braves goalie fell for, then pulled the puck back and took a shot. “It was a pretty nifty move,” said Hepditch. “It’s not one that many players could think to try in overtime, especially double overtime, but he tried and it worked out.” With the end of the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League’s regular season looming, Hepditch is preparing for some big games ahead. A Tuesday game in Kimberley (which took place after press time) would see the Thunder Cats take on the Eddie Mountain Division’s third-place Dynamiters, who were 11 points ahead of the Thunder Cats. On Friday, the Thunder Cats play at home, hosting the Fernie Ghostriders who are at the top of the Eddie Mountain Division with 60 points, two ahead of the Golden Rockets. The Thunder Cats beat Fernie 6-1 in December, and have lost twice since. “The last three games have been competitive games,” said Hepditch. “When they are fighting for first place, it’s not going to come easy.” And on Tuesday, the Thunder Cats host the Columbia Valley Rockies, who will be struggling for fourth place and a playoff spot. “Columbia Valley is going to be a four-point game, one that really could make or break the final stretch,” said Hepditch. “But you don’t want to look too far ahead, you want to look at the task at hand.”

Break in Time owners running concession


The final key piece to the huge Creston and District Community Complex facelift and expansion is finally in place. A long-awaited food concession opened last week with Calvin Germann and family operating the roomy facility. Calvin, who manages and cooks at the Break in Time Caffé on Canyon Street, said that the business is a family affair, with daughter Heidi helping manage and operate the concession and another daughter, Becky, and his wife, Judy, looking after the financial side. Calvin said he first became interested in running the concession after reading a newspaper ad calling for proposals last October. “What drew us was that they wanted healthy food alternatives,” he said. He was the only business owner to attend a mandatory meeting and tour, but backed away from the idea when “I couldn’t see how we could do it.” That changed when Heidi and Becky came on board and said, “We’ll give you as much help as we can.” Negotiating a contract wasn’t easy, with so many unknown fac-

tors and no information on which to make business projections. “But working with community complex management and staff has been nothing but positive,” Calvin said. “This is great for our restaurant because it’s a slow time of the year and now we don’t have to cut employee hours or do layoffs,” he said. And, with a couple of people he already knew looking for work, “everything just fell into place.” The entire operation is a work

in progress as the Germann family strives to get a sense of what hours and menu items make sense for the new, stainless steel equipped, purpose built facility. Current hours are 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday to Friday and weekends from noon-5 p.m. The concession will also open for hockey games, tournaments, curling bonspiels and other events. “The food is similar to what we serve in our restaurant, with some adaptations,” he said.

Crematorium benefits valley From page 1 “There are a lot of benefits to having a crematorium here in Creston,” Kemle said. “It eliminates travel on dangerous winter highways and we can offer a quick turnaround for funeral arrangements.” In December, when the facility opened, Kemle said 19 of the 22 funerals included cremations, much higher than the 58 per cent national rate and the B.C. rate of 81 per cent. Historically, only about two thirds of the deceased in the Creston Valley have been cremated, largely because of lower burial costs than in larger cities, he added. Submitted The building was constructed Dennis Kemle, Ron Toyota and Glenn Guthrie in front of the crematorium. under the supervision of contractor Glenn Guthrie, who is also a part owner of the funeral chapel. “We wanted a building that would show there is some pride here,” he said. “Most people will drive by and not even know what the building is.” The funeral business, and especially crematoriums, are closely regulated by the provincial government and opening the facility wasn’t ONE-BEDROOM SUITE without its stresses, Guthrie admitted. AVAILABLE NOW! “It took a ton of time and energy,” he said. Provincial regulations for crematoriums • Delicious Meals changed during the construction process.

Hot and cold wraps are made to be enjoyed at a table or in the arena stands. Tacos, nachos, salads and the like are alternatives to more typical hockey game fare like hotdogs, fries (potato and yam), burgers and poutine. “We are using whole wheat hamburger and hot dog buns from Creston Valley Bakery,” Calvin said. “Yuri (Jmaeff) has been really helpful in working with us. He’s going to start baking gluten-free products, too, which we will also offer here.” Heidi, who is extremely health and diet conscious, said the demand for gluten-free alternatives continues to rise, with nearly a third of the demand in the restaurant being for baked goods with no glutens. And she is the driving force behind freshly made juices, which started out with orange and pomegranate. A kiwiraspberry blend is next on the agenda. Coke and Pepsi products are also stocked and an espresso machine is on order that will allow the concession to offer cappuccinos and lattes in addition to brewed coffee. Baked goods, yogurt with granola or fruit, and other goodies will be especially popular with the breakfast crowd. “We are trying to offer as much

in the way of healthy alternatives as we can while acknowledging that people still want their candy and hotdogs, “ Heidi said. Calvin said locally sourced food will be a priority. Famous Fritz Meats and Deli and Kootenay Alpine Cheese will be among the suppliers. “A lot of what this is about will be getting feedback from the community,” Heidi said. “We will introduce different options and want to hear what people think.” Calvin said there is a joy into moving into a brand new kitchen and using the equipment for the first time, but Heidi laughed and said there are drawbacks. “The popcorn machine shorted out right before our first hockey game, the first time we had used it,” she laughed. A call to the supplier resolved the problem the next day but the experience wasn’t without its stresses. Overall, though, Calvin said that opening the concession has been all positive. “It’s been fantastic for us to work with all the staff. I love the team atmosphere here,” he said. “At the restaurant we are our own team, but here we are part of a bigger one, and it’s been a great experience.”


The perfect retirement lifestyle Seniors want it all: a comfortable home, independence to follow their own schedule and maintain their own interests, safety and security, delicious food and the company of others. And who can blame them? Not long ago, seniors had limited housing options, and few met all of their needs. But in the fall of 2005 Crest View Village opened its doors and a new style of seniors housing opened in Creston, providing today’s seniors the opportunity to experience retirement living at its best. Crest View Village is a well-crafted seniors’ community boasting 74 beautiful suites ranging from studios to one and two bedroom layouts. These maintenance-free living suites incorporate supportive features to promote independence and 24-hour emergency monitoring service for added peace of mind. Kitchens include a fridge and stove and each suite is equipped with its own personal heat and air conditioning controls. Beyond the suite is access to a variety of common areas which include a games room, spa room, library, dining room, coffee room, crafts room, hair salon and lounges. All areas are easily accessible, full of interesting people, engaging activities and share a wonderful sense of community. Hospitality services at Crest View Village are included in the

affordable monthly rent and include weekly housekeeping, a wide selection of recreational and social activities, 24 hour emergency monitoring, shuttle bus service, and hot, delicious meals prepared by on-site chefs. And each meal is served by cheerful wait staff in a central dining room, with a cozy fireplace where guests and families are always welcome. In addition to the hospitality services, residents can enjoy peace of mind knowing they don’t have to worry about extra bills because all utilities including water, sewer, heat, air conditioning and cable are also included. What’s more, Crest View Village’s convenient location enables seniors to easily maintain their relationships with friends and family. And at Crest View Village pets are a big part of the family. In this pet friendly building residents are encouraged to bring their pets with them to live. Free from the responsibilities of home-ownership, seniors at Crest View Village can enjoy the many other activities and joys that life offers. We’re fortunate to live in a time when retirement living options provide everything seniors want – and more! Crest View Village is open daily; and you can call (250) 428-9986 for more information or to book a tour.

Time zone poll should offer more than two options

To the Editor: The Regional District of Central Kootenay Area B newsletter is conducting a poll ( time-change.html) requesting Area B residents to decide between two time zone options. This appears to be a poorly designed poll and, as I see it, will not provide Area B director John Kettle with an informed opinion from the voters. In my view, there should be three choices. Choice 1: Mountain standard time (MST), which is what is currently in use, with no observance of daylight time. Choice 2: Mountain daylight time (MDT), which would mean MST during the winter months and moving our clocks forward one hour for the warmer months. Choice 3: Pacific time, which includes both Pacific standard and the observance of Pacific daylight time. Both options 2 and 3 would mean “springing ahead” and “falling back”. MST is the time zone that the East Shore, Kitchener, Yahk, Kingsgate and Creston Valley have always operated with. The clocks are not changed in the spring or fall but remain on the same time year-round. This aligns our time with the east in the winter months and the west and south in the summer months. MDT will align the affected communities’ time with the East Kootenay and Alberta. Some of the services and amenities to the East that are utilized by many of us are the Interior Health Authority’s East Kootenay region, East Kootenay Regional Hospital, other health care specialists in the East Kootenay and Alberta, and shopping and entertainment. We are part of the Kootenay-Columbia federal riding, and our member of Parliament is in that time zone. Pacific time will align the affected communities’ time with the KootenayBoundary and all of B.C. west of Creston. Idaho and Washington states are also on Pacific time. Some of the services and amenities located to the west that are utilized by many of us are the four remaining regions of the Interior Heath Authority, the Kootenay Boundary Regional Hospital, Kelowna General Hospital, the BC Cancer Agency. and other health care services and specialists, KBS radio, CBC radio and TV, and shopping and entertainment. Furthermore, most of the RDCK and School District No. 8 (Kootenay Lake) are located in this time zone. We are part of the NelsonCreston electoral district, so our provincial member of the legislative assembly (MLA) is from this time zone.

This poll, while perhaps well meaning, is skewed toward observing MDT because it only provides the inside story on one option. Of the three obvious choices, only two are offered to the voter. Therefore, I believe this poll and the information prefacing it will not provide our voters with the knowledge needed to make an educated decision, nor will it yield our Area B director with the informed, non-biased voter preference that he is hoping for. Deborah Nelius Canyon

Time zone issue less important than local economy

To the Editor: It appears Coun. Judy Gadicke is still trying to draw us into a Twilight Zone of making an issue of a non-issue, with a survey in the Regional District of Central Kootenay newsletter, while still ignoring the serious economic issues facing Creston. Most recently we saw a letter in support of Gadicke from the city of Trail. This individual claimed to have missed a meeting 28 years ago due to Creston not following daylight time. That’s a long time to be carrying a grudge. One can bet though that this person did not miss another meeting due to the time zone. It should also be noted that it was not the fact that Creston does not follow daylight time but rather that we are in a different time zone altogether that caused the missed meeting — a problem that will continue because (as I noted in my previous letter, “Daylight time not an issue”, July 19) we live on the border of a time zone and will always be doing mental arithmetic when crossing the line, whether it is to the east or to the west. Gadicke in her July 5 column (“Valley should consider time change”) referred to costs amounting to approximately $60,000 per year due to Creston not abiding by daylight time. How are these costs calculated? No evidence was produced to support this claim, and no breakdown of how these numbers were derived accompanied her assertion. I would speculate that this “accounting” is entirely a figment of someone’s imagination. Insofar as Gadicke would like to implement this change, it is up to her to produce believable, verifiable benefits. And she has yet to do so. In the past five years, the only new economic activity seen in the valley is the opening of the Tim Hortons, the Ramada Creston Hotel and Ricky’s All-Day Grill. While all are admirable businesses, they hardly form the basis for a solid econom-

By ignoring these issues, Gadicke seems content in relegating the remaining folks to an economic underclass. Seriously, how many of the $500,000 houses that are up for sale in town will be purchased by employees of the aforementioned businesses? How many of the employees in the Creston Valley not working directly or indirectly for the government are actually making a living wage? How many empty storefronts do we need to see before we get any action on the economy? How long do the mills in town need to be reduced to running single shifts before Gadicke decides her efforts are better spent finding an economic boost to the valley? How many of our breadwinners have to travel to Elkford or Northern Alberta before Gadicke realizes the time zone isn’t the issue rather a lack of economic opportunity affecting Creston? Quite clearly, the promotion of mountain daylight time by Gadicke is merely a diversion created to draw our attention away from the fact that the Creston town council doesn’t have the imagination nor the initiative to do something to stem the decline of Creston’s economic base. Gary Eisele Creston

A positive note for the beginning of the year To the Editor: Often, letters to the editor are used to complain or criticize an issue. As the new year begins, I would rather offer a positive sentiment for your readers. This is a quote from the Daily Word, with which I begin each day on a positive note: “I may be tempted to focus on what is wrong with the world as headlines highlight stories of chaos and conflict. If I dwell on that news, I feel discouraged. “Instead, I choose to focus on what is right with the world. I notice the inspiring evidence of goodness and peace being shared. “People all over the world are helping others in distress. Volunteers build houses, grow crops, and provide medical care. Community members stand up for neighbors who have been treated poorly. “I find ways to spread peace and love by sharing my time, skills and resources within my community and beyond.” I hope this inspires many to volunteer part of their life for others. In giving, we receive. Signe Miller Canyon

The book of Daniel should be required reading for everyone. Although Jesus encouraged the reading of the entire Bible, the only book He specifically mentioned was that of “Daniel the prophet.” It deals with “the time of the end.” The first six chapters are stories with a parallel for today. The prophecies have application today. The stories graphically portray the character qualities needed to stand in the crisis ahead. The prophecies reveal the nature, timing and mag-

nitude of the coming crisis. We will be looking at Daniel this coming year. The book of Daniel was written to prepare us — those living in Earth’s last hour — for the glorious return of Jesus. The first chapter starts out with a seeming failure of the God of Israel. His people defeated and some of the elite taken to Babylon by Nebuchadnezzar in 605 BC. But, the chapter ends showing the superiority of God’s plans for clear minds and healthy bodies. See DANIEL, page 8 7

Break in Time concession Federal government supports economy completes complex

Have you ever experienced the feeling, whether with food, play or life in general where it’s good, but it’s just missing something? It might be that spaghetti sauce not quite “there”, the pool game where you are not quite making all the shots you used to or how

From the Centre Neil Ostafichuk you feel good but not quite great. We were kind of like that here; things running pretty decent, settling in to how people use the new building, patron numbers still increasing — the universe progressing probably as it should. Then bingo! The concession opened and we saw, or rather felt, the change in energy that once again having a food service brings. It’s kind of like being allowed into grandma’s living room where all the couches and lamps used to be covered in plastic and no one was allowed in except for wakes and now you can jump on the couch and put your feet on the coffee table. It was the missing piece — it definitely forms part of the whole. The concession has moved around the facility over the decades — before I started, it was in the centre of the arena lobby attached to what used to be the employee lunchroom and which later became the first aid room (after it was a cashier station for the outdoor pool). When I started 18 years ago, it was then in what later became the building inspector’s office (and later programmer’s office and now conference room) and served into the main lobby (where the ticket booth is now) as well as into the curling viewing area. Part of my job way back then was to build a new concession in the arena lobby (where the Kootenay Room


From page 7 The elite were to be trained for three years and given what the king thought was the very best of food, the rich food directly from his table. But Daniel and his three friends were servants of God and would not defile themselves by eating foods — the unclean and rich foods — which had been dedicated to idols. To eat of these foods would be a denial of their

is now) and which served the public there for the next 15 years or so until its latest incarnation. Obviously you kind of need a program to keep track of all the changes over the decades. I think the first thing I struggled with was the delicious aroma emanating into the lobby of fresh baked muffins. I mean like, really? Talk about facing temptation for those that work here. I foresee more strain on my fitness pass. If you haven’t heard, Calvin and Judy Germann who currently operate A Break In Time Caffé downtown have taken on this new challenge beginning with a six-month trial to establish a number of factors, such as what sells and what doesn’t, what are reasonable hours to open for both the benefit of public and operator and how to function efficiently within the space. We are basically starting from scratch again as we have been without a concession for a fair while, as well as having an entire new audience to market to with a full time pool and fitness facility. Just observing the positive feedback from the short two weeks they have been open and the healthy choices along with regular fare being offered, I would say we are on the right track. As mentioned before, where we are today brings us that much closer to the vision the community sought through the master plan process oh so long ago and subsequently what the design team pursued in setting the direction on the entire facility project. Although challenging sometimes, the deliberate and methodical process that was followed this past four or five years in all aspects of design and construction has given us an asset to be proud of. I have seen and continue to hear of large projects throughout B.C. that were rushed through without adequate thought or input only to haunt the operators as well as public for the 30- or 40-year life cycle of a building. While we will always strive to improve what we have, the Creston Valley has a facility that surpasses many others in Western Canada and we look forward to the success of the latest addition of those that feed us. Neil Ostafichuk is the recreation supervisor at the Creston and District Community Complex.

faith. And they would not do that. They stayed true to principle in a firm reliance on God. “Daniel made up his mind not to defile himself by eating the food and wine given to them by the king. And he made a simple request of the one in charge of their well being. … ‘Test us for ten days on a diet of vegetables and water,’ Daniel said. ‘At the end of the ten days, see how we look compared to the other young men who are eating the king's rich food. Then you can decide whether or

At the end of the ten days, Daniel and his three friends looked healthier and better nourished than the young men who had been eating the food assigned by the king. So after that, the attendant fed them only vegetables instead of the rich foods and wines. God gave these four young men an unusual aptitude for learning the literature and science of the time. And God gave Daniel special

ability in understanding the meanings of visions and dreams. … In all matters requiring wisdom and balanced judgment, the king found the advice of these young men to be ten times better than that of all the magicians and enchanters in his entire kingdom.” (Daniel 1:8, 12-17, 20) Daniel served in some form of senior political and advisory position for six kings over some 70 years. Not bad for a captive! God identified Daniel as a “man greatly beloved” and he lived in accor-

dance to God’s health laws and was blessed with physical strength and mental superiority. He was privileged to have unusual spiritual insight, which he could have used to his personal advantage. But he always made it clear that he was gifted by the grace of God — to whom he always gave credit. Furthermore, God used Daniel to record several of the most remarkable prophecies in all of Scripture. He was a significant person indeed!

Opera for Heathens coming to Sasquatch SUBMITTED

Opera for Heathens is a post-modern opera-rock cabaret for the 21st century that will be presented at the Snoring Sasqatch on Feb. 9. Kevin Armstrong is a versatile and unorthodox performer. He has forged a career in both Canada and Europe, performing everything from traditional opera and musical theatre, to one-man shows where he pairs his four-octave vocal range with his skills as a guitarist. Armstrong performs a wide range of music, from opera arias and musical numbers, to grandiose, vocal-oriented music by Meat Loaf (in German), Queen, Styx and others.

Armstrong grew up in the richly artistic community of Nelson, where he was exposed to all types of music, visual art and theatre. He started music lessons by age 10, and by college, had already studied classical, jazz and rock guitar, drums and voice. After completing a master’s degree in vocal performance at McGill University in Montreal, Armstrong moved to Zurich, Switzerland, where he did an apprenticeship at the Zurich Opera House. There he had the opportunity to perform onstage next to some of the biggest names in the opera world. Opera for Heathens was a hit at the 2011 Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival, as well as the 2012 Vancouver International Fringe

Festival, playing to sold-out houses and rave reviews. Some of Armstrong’s other recent credits include the world-premiere of the opera Khaos with Nelson Community Opera, the roles of Pilate and Judas in numerous productions of Jesus Christ Superstar, as well as opera performances in Frankfurt, Wiesbaden and Zurich. He also recently completed a 60-city tour of Germany, Austria and Switzerland with Night of the Musicals, Europe’s longest-running touring musical show, as well as a recital tour of the B.C. Interior with internationally renowned organist Robert Kwan. For more information, visit Armstrong’s website at, follow him on Twitter @opera4heathens or join the Facebook group, “Kevin Armstrong’s ‘Opera for Heathens’ ”. Video clips are available at Opera for Heathens is being presented with the support of the Columbia Basin Trust and the Columbia Kootenay Cultural Alliance, and will be a great opportunity to see a world-class talent on the local stage. Tickets are $15 in advance at Kingfisher Used Books and Black Bear Books, and $18 at the door, which opens at 6 p.m.; the show begins at 7.

Opera for Heathens singer Kevin Armstrong.


Palmer offers blend of music SUBMITTED

Drawing his inspiration from country and folk legends like Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Johnny Cash, Merle Travis and the Carter Family, Steven Palmer will present a joyous blending of original and traditional country, folk, gospel, blues and ragtime at the Snoring Sasquatch on Feb. 7. With a voice like a “warm blanket on a cold winter’s

night,” according to Jericho Folk Club, or a “shady tree on a hot summer’s day,” according to Scott Cook, Palmer is equally at home on six-string or 12-string guitar, performing for folk festivals, house concerts and soft seating theatres. After 40 years as a travelling musician covering a lot of road, Palmer is still playing and still touring, grown enough to sing about life and simple pleasures with all the unhurried authori-

ty of a quiet and simple folksinging road-survivor. “A wonderful evening,” said Joan Trott of Manitoba’s Mid-West Arts Council. “Our ‘twentysomethings’ enjoyed Steve’s concert just as much as all of us older folk. We’re looking forward to doing it again.” Tickets are $15 in advance at Kingfisher Used Books and Black Bear Books, and $18 at the door, which opens at 6 p.m.; the show begins at 7.

Dawn Danforth


You are my nightmare walking and a psychopath You are the king of your jungle, but not mine. You’re not a firecracker, you are a birthday candle about to fizzle out. So if I’m wearing the wrong colour, I’m dead? Why not? Why shoot a person when they haven’t hurt you? Create a peaceful environment. Well I don’t want to know you! You really don’t care.

Fine, I will leave you alone. One person can make a huge difference. Colours are your life. That’s an insult to soldiers. I didn’t leave you nothin’. Maybe if he thought about what he’s doin’. Sad life… She should think before she acts. You can change that. They know how you feel. A better one. Are you suicidal? Tidy yourself up! They wonder about ya! You like scarin’ people? You have no pity! For who You have no friends. I will be careful. Don’t kill, even with reason.

Screams shattered the silence as they echo through the valley. The elk herd lift their heads grazing and cautiously scan the tree line. The forest goes silent for only a moment. There nestled amongst the majestic pines is a small log cabin; its roof is tattered and some logs show rot. A swirl of smoke dances from the chimney and the kerosene lamps are lit as dusk sweeps into the valley. Hidden below the floorboards in a makeshift cellar sits a little girl, pain coursing through her small body and tears running down her chubby cheeks. Her name is Becky and she is four years old with hazel eyes and auburn hair. She hides in the darkness listening and hoping to hear the closing of the bedroom door. Her body aches and stiffness creeps into her small legs as she cringes in the far corner, afraid the door may open. Time seems to stand still as she waits for her mom to fall asleep. She sits waiting till she can crawl out of the cellar and crawl into her bed, which is in the corner near the front door. Soon silence falls and she comes out and sees the empty wine bottles strewn across the kitchen. She tiptoes to her bed. Sleep seems to evade her, as she stares up at the moon through the skylight about her bed. She lies in silence and rubs her swollen lips and her left eye barely opens. The pain seems to never leave, for each day brings a new beating. She lies thinking about her daddy and a smile slowly forms as her eyelids feel heavy and she says one word, “Why?”

“As the world melts under our feet, we must find the best way for our journey.” A dog team pulls a family across the vast sea ice of Greenland, but with the terrain melting beneath them, the dogs break through the surface, plunging into frigid polar waters. People of the North are coming to terms with the unprecedented changes facing all Arctic peoples. For those living in the Far North, climate change is not a debatable scientific point, it's a very real force changing the way they have lived for centuries. Vanishing Point, a National Film Board documentary film production to be pre-

sented at the Creston and District Public Library on Feb. 14, tells the story of Navarana, an Inughuit elder from the most remote corner of the planet: the northwest tip of Greenland. Thanks to her ancestor, an Inuit shaman who led an epic journey across the High Arctic in the 1860s, Navarana is connected by blood to a group of Canadian Inuit. Today she worries about the future of her people, as they face the greatest social and environmental challenges in their history. She embarks on hunting journeys with families of two communities — one on Canada’s Baffin Island, the other in her neighbouring Greenland — and discovers that while the two groups share common

values, they are adapting differently to outside influences and to the inescapable changes that affect their way of life. Navarana draws inspiration and hope from the ties that still bind the two communities, as well as from the legacy of her intrepid ancestor. Narrated by Navarana (who still lives in Greenland) in subtitled Inuktitut, Vanishing Point is classic National Film Board — gorgeously shot and leisurely paced, offering an insightful, sympathetic glimpse into a very different culture. In creating Vanishing Point, Canmore, Alta., filmmakers Stephen A. Smith and Julia Szucs, who are both environmental scientists, desired to “get away from the intel-

Maja Eymann

May 5, 1928 ~ December 26, 2012 Maja Eymann of Canyon, British Columbia died December 26, 2012 after a brief battle with cancer. Under the loving care of her son Markus Eymann (Karen Jardine), and visits from her daughter Susan Eymann (Jeff MacDonald) and many friends, Maja's life was Àlled with love and great conversation right to the end. Maja and Alex came to Canada in 1961, living in Manitouwadge, Ontario until 1993 when they retired to an empty plot of land in beautiful Creston Valley. Nineteen years later they have created a forested paradise. Maja was a women of strength, creativity and boundless energy. Her many skills included fashion pattern making, sewing, knitting, and weaving. She could be found in the middle of the night watching a live Formula One Race or her fellow countryman Roger Federer play tennis. Her home regularly smelled of fresh baked bread and her children were regularly asked to trade their sandwich with their classmates. She was ahead of her times in many regards; she grew her hair to donate in the late 1970's and may have invented the Three R's of Recycling. For years she was the "music lady" for the Manitouwadge Figure Skating Club. Maja was predeceased by her husband Alex Eymann. She is survived by her children Susan (Jeff) and Markus (Karen), her grandson Brandon Eymann (Rachel) and her two great grandsons Xander and Damien. A Celebration of her Life will be held on her Canyon acreage later this spring. Donations in Maja's memory can be made to the Creston Valley Wildlife Management Area, PO Box 640 Creston, BC, V0B 1G0 ( or to your local Hospice Society.

ADVERTISE in the LARGEST OUTDOOR PUBLICATION IN BC The 2013-2015 BC Freshwater Fishing Regulations Synopsis

Albert Edward Boffey

The most effective way to reach an incredible number of BC Sportsmen & women. Two year edition- terrific presence for your business.

January 22, 1929 ~ January 18, 2013

Albert Edward Boffey went home to be with the Lord on January 18, 2013 after a brief illness. He was born in Creston BC, Canada on January 22, 1929 and grew up on the family orchard. Following high school, he came to the US and attended Indiana Technical College in Fort Wayne, graduating with Bachelor degrees in both Mechanical and Civil Engineering. While attending school, he met his wife Inez at a YMCA dance class and they were married on September 9, 1951. While living in Cleveland, OH with his young family he became an American citizen in 1955. In 1956 Al took a job with Boeing Aerospace Division, moving his family to Seattle. He spent his career in the Defense Department. Among his many accomplishments was his involvement in designing the Minuteman missile, which earned him his division’s “Man of the Yearâ€? award in 1985. In addition to his employment at Boeing, Al and Inez purchased the Skylark Motel in Skykomish in 1964. He continued working at Boeing, commuting home on weekends to Skykomish where his family resided. After a productive 32 years at Boeing and 24 years of he and Inez operating a thriving motel, he retired in 1988. Al and Inez settled in Mt. Vernon and spent many winters in Yuma, Arizona. During his retirement Al enjoyed time with family, taking great interest and pleasure in his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He also enjoyed tending to his yard, and making improvements to his home. He was always available to pass along his help and expertise to his children and grandchildren. He is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Inez; brother Raymond (Darlene); sisters Muriel Boffey and Helen Carston; his sons Greg (Mary Ann), Larry (Marcia), and Dan (Debbie); grandchildren Andrew (Danielle), David (Lea Brinkman), Jessica (Trent Wilson), Dane, Cameron, Melanie (C.J. Longley), and Matthew, along with eight great-grandchildren. There will be a Memorial Service to honor and celebrate Al’s life on February 16 2013 at Emmanuel Baptist Church in Mount Vernon, WA at 2:00pm. A reception will follow in EBC’s Fireside Room. In lieu of Ă owers the family suggests a donation to either the Wounded Warrior Project ( or Samaritan’s Purse (samaritanpurse.orgdonate). Arrangements are under the care of Hawthorne Funeral Home, Mount Vernon, WA. Though the “Emergency Scamâ€? (or sometimes referred to as the “Grandparent Scamâ€?) has been around for years, the RCMP-led Canadian Anti-Fraud Centre (PhoneBusters) warns the public to be on after noting a marked increase in the number of complaints in the last two months. Traditionally operating as a telemarketing scam throughout North America, fraudsters contact potential victims while posing as a family member or friend in urgent need of cash. Often the scenario involves an accident or arrest while travelling abroad, with a request that cash be sent through a money transfer company, such as Western Union or Money Gram. In the typical scenario, a grandparent receives a phone call from con-artist claiming to be one of his or hers grandchildren. The caller goes on to say that they are in some kind of trouble, usually a car accident, returning from a foreign country, or even bail money and need money immediately. Victims don't verify the story until after the money has been sent as the caller speciďŹ cally asks that they do not want other relatives to know what has happened by asking “Can you please help me? I'm in jail (or in the hospital / or in some type of ďŹ nancial need). But don't tell Dad. He would kill me if he found out, please sent the money ASAP. I'm scared" Wanting to help their grandchild, the victim sends money by a money transfer company such as Money Gram or Western Union. Variations on the scam exist such as an old neighbor, a friend of the family etc. but predominantly the emergency scam is directed toward the Grandparents.

Before pennies vanish for good, Canyon-Lister Elementary School (CLES) students are collecting them in a “Pennies for Water” drive on behalf of Free the Children, an organization with a mission to create a world where all young people are free. Pennies aren’t going to be used for much longer and it would be a great way to make a penny make a difference. Any pennies can be brought to CLES until April 26. After she saw a commercial on TV about Free the Children, Grade 5 student Kalissa Bloodworth went straight to the website to get started, and brought the idea to school. “My mom saw what I was doing and thought I could bring the idea to school,” she said. “My dad thought we could share the idea with friends and family and raise even more money.” Free the Children believes that children have the right to live free, to go to school, to drink clean water, to be safe, to play, to live. It also believes that young people are powerful and that they can create change — which made it a suitable fundraiser for CLES students. “I think this is important because you’re changing someone’s life forever and getting to know what these people go through and how I can fix it,” said Bloodworth. Free the Children was founded by Craig Keilburger in 1995. He was 12 when he and 11 classmates to begin their fight against child labour. One morning, Craig was looking in the Toronto Star. He was looking for the comics but a story caught his eye. It was a story about a courageous boy about his own age named Iqbal. Iqbal Masih was born in South Asia and was sold into slavery at the age of four. For six years he was chained to a carpet weaving loom. Iqbal’s story got out and his story spoke out for children’s rights. Sadly, Iqbal’s reputation also caught the attention of people who benefitted by child slavery. When he was only twelve, Iqbal Masih was killed for defending the rights of children. What Craig Keilburger learned from Iqbal’s story was that “the bravest voice can live in the smallest body.” Craig felt he had to do something. Free the Children was born. The program continues to grow and includes We Day, camps that teach leadership skills to youth

The Creston Valley Minor Hockey Association’s peewee Chiefs attended a Trail tournament on the weekend and came home champions after a great weekend of hockey. In the first game of the tournament, the Chiefs came out slow and struggled with passing but eventually got better and did enough to start with a win, beating Spokane 4-1. Goals by Logan Rast assisted by Matthew Hills and Shayne Walker, and Hills assisted by Kale Plotnikoff and Walker were followed by two from Ty Gudjonson with Plotnikoff, Hills and Walker assisting to finish the scoring. The team was starting to gel and play team hockey when they beat Trail 6-1. Leading the way was Gudjonson with a hat trick and two helpers, Brayden Jellis with two goals and Plotnikoff with goal and an assist. A 3-3 tie between the Chiefs and Kelowna was probably the game of the tournament, a high intense game with end-to-end action. The locals were down 1-0 after the first then 2-0 early in the second until 8:26 when Gudjonson scored assisted by Jellis, Tyson Steed followed unassisted. Kelowna responded with a goal to make it 3-2 after two. The Chiefs came out strong and eventually tied it 15:12 of the third when Plotnikoff scored unassisted. The Chiefs had chances down the end and played a strong game with effort and teamwork; it was a well played game by both squads. The Chiefs beat Grand Forks 2-0 in the semifinal, another good game played by both teams and with strong goaltending by both goalies. The Chiefs ran into penalty trouble in the first

and early second and had to extend way too much energy killing penalties, but got the job done, with a scoreless game after two periods. Late in the second, a great save by James Porter Jr. kept it tied, which was a momentum saver. The Chiefs kept pushing and finally Gudjonson scored, assisted by Hills, in the third at 12:05 — it was key to get the lead and put pressure on them. With 7:33 left in game, the Chiefs called the money play, a set play from their end that led to a two-on-one with Rast assisted by Gudjonson scoring, which was huge and kind of deflated Grand Forks. In the final game, the Chiefs beat Kelowna 3-2. They came out ready to play and jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first, with goals by Rast, assisted by Plotnikoff and Hills, and Steed unassisted, knowing they needed to play from the front and needed the lead. Kelowna scored in the second, to make it 2-1 after two periods. The game plan was to throw all shots on the net, and it worked early in the third when Walker took a hard shot and the puck went off a forward going to cover him and ended up in the net — a lucky bounce that made it 3-1. Kelowna scored with 5:07 left in the third to make it 3-2. From there on, the Chiefs held on for their lives; rolling over just two lines and four defencemen, they were tired and Kelowna kept coming. That third period was all heart and fighting for the win — the Chiefs bent but didn’t break. The coaches were proud of the effort, determination and character that every player showed. It was a true team effort and they deserved to be champions. The Chiefs are off to Castlegar this weekend for another tough tier 3 hockey tournament.
