Commission proposes Nakusp joins South Okanagan-West Kootenay riding alex cooper Black Press

Nelson, Salmo and Kaslo could join the Kootenay—Columbia riding, at the expense of Nakusp, if the recommendations made by the BC Federal Electoral Boundaries Commission pass the House of Commons. The commission tabled its report with the House of Commons on Monday, Jan. 28. The report modifies the boundary of the Kootenay—Columbia riding to include the Nelson, Salmo, Kaslo and the surrounding area. It also lops off Nakusp from the riding and joins it with the new riding of South Okanagan—West Kootenay. The proposal is sure to be controversial in the West Kootenay, where local politicians have argued against the move that would split Nelson from its neighbouring cities of Castlegar and Trail. At hearing in the fall, residents in the West Kootenay argued strongly against the changes, however the commission has left Nelson in Kootenay—Columbia in its final report. The new boundaries will be studied this spring by a House of Commons committee that will accept MPs’

written objections, which will then be sent back to the commission for consideration. The final realignment will be submitted to Canada’s Chief Electoral Officer in September. Kootenay—Columbia MP David Wilks said he supported the changes, though he expected his BC Southern Interior counterpart Alex Atamanenko to oppose them. “I expected most of it to happen,” he said. “I’m not opposed to any of it. The commission had a tough job to do. They had to try and get every riding up, and that’s what they had to do.” He did note that expanding the riding would create additional challenges due to the fact he would have to represent more communities (should he win re-election). “Having said that, I’ve made a promise all along that if I am re-elected in 2015 – and I do plan to run – that I would have an office in Nelson as well as Cranbrook, and that would assist the riding immensely,” he said. David Raven, the Mayor of Revelstoke, said the changes would likely mean the community sees less of their MP. “Right now he’s been very accommodating and he’s spent more time

electoral district quota. According to the commission’s report, they looked at keeping the riding as is, but it would have had a population 16 per cent below the quota without the changes. “Submissions encouraged the Commission to keep Nel-

Librarian and chair shuffle takes place at Nakusp Public Library Claire paradis Arrow Lakes News

There are changes afoot at the Centennial Building, and not just the renovations that will join the archives to the historical edifice. The Nakusp Public Library is undergoing changes in both the boardroom and library staff. Much-loved librarian Sabina IseliOtto will be leaving the library to pursue her interests and loves elsewhere in the community. “I’ve been offered an opportunity to work for friends in the private sector, which I can do online from anywhere – an opportunity I didn’t want to pass up,” she told the Arrow Lakes News. “I’m planning to run the bike shop in the meantime, though as more of a meeting and activity space for adults and kids

than for bicycles (at least at this time of year).” Events are already happening at Black Bear Bike Repair, including the robot club and an upcoming spinning (fibres, not bikes) workshop on Feb. 10. Her departure came as a bit of a shock to board members, said former library board Chair Paula Rogers. “We kind of were surprised because we’d heard it right from her mouth she was going to stay,” admitted Rogers, although she believes the move is ultimately the right one. “Sabina has fantastic energy and vision for youth in the community. I think her real heart is helping youth,” she mused. “Being librarian was too restricted for her. Her ideas of community were larger than the library.” The long-serving chair is leaving the library now that she has reached

her maximum time of eight years on the library board (according to library legislation, board members can only serve a maximum of eight consecutive years). Vice-chair and long-time friend Barbara MacPherson will be taking up the reins now, the decision having been made official during the Nakusp Public Library’s recent AGM held on Jan. 31. “It’s sad to go, you get used to the job,” said P. Rogers about leaving the board. New Chair MacPherson is no stranger to the Nakusp Public Library herself, and is the person behind the popular Poetry Night and Books That Make A Difference annual events. Both women are familiar with the library and its many incarnations.

Nakusp council highlights from January 28 CLAIRE PARADIS Arrow Lakes News

It was another quick meeting for those assembled on Jan. 28. With no delegations, petitions, or presentations, Acting Mayor Ulli Mueller, council and staff leapt right into the agenda.

Low water sooner than expected Original estimates by BC Hydro of the annual low watermark were for April, but now the Crown corporation has told Columbia Power Corporation that low water will be the end of February, CAO Linda Tynan told council. For that reason, construction of the long-awaited boat launch will be beginning shortly. A public meeting was scheduled for Monday, Feb. 4 with the contractor building the ramp.

Lagoon to have Danish cover The sewage lagoon is soon to be covered not with flaky pastry but an innovative cover made in Denmark. Funding for the cover from the Gas Tax Innovations Fund has been approved, the CAO’s report

announced. Tynan said the ministry is very excited about the Danish product, which is a new technology to B.C. If it works well, it will likely become a model for other municipalities, she told council.

Waiting for arena funding Funding for the Arena is still in the works, said the report, but the $400,000 application has not yet been approved although it’s still in the running for a Community Recreation Program grant.

CAO report includes staff updates, and more The CAO’s report will be including updates about training and changes for Village staff as they come up. One of the notes in this week’s report was that Mike Pedersen’s 20-year anniversary working with the Village of Nakusp was on Jan. 18. In a brief summary of the financial side of things, the CAO’s report stated that the water and sewer bills will be mailed out the first week of February. The report noted that

some categories have changes resulting in some changes to individual bills. Local business owners have likely received their business license renewal notices, which were mailed mid-January. Now that billings for the two utilities are done, the focus for the financial department is now on updating accounting software. “Year-end entries and reconciliations are a focus in preparation for the development of the 2012 financial statements and external audit,” the report stated. The audit is scheduled for the week of March 22.

Street storage a problem for snow removal Unlicensed vehicles, boats and trailers on Village streets have been causing headaches for Public Works staff trying to clear snow. The Village staff will be issuing reminders that vehicles must be kept off the road.

Keeping the heat bill down in the arena The Heat Recovery project at the arena will be receiving a boost,

thanks to Area K director Paul Peterson. Peterson has indicated that he has committed $125,000 in Gas Tax funds for Phase II of the project. The application is being prepared by staff to be sent to the RDCK for final approval. “We’re doing all the background work on what we have there and where the next phase will take us,” said Tynan, who said Phase II will reduce heating costs at the arena significantly.

Hot time at the Hot Springs Nakusp Hot Springs was busy over the Christmas season, with 122 to 222 people visiting per day during the extended holiday hours. If you’ve driven the north highway, you may have noticed the new streamlined sign on the highway pointing the way up to the Nakusp Hot Springs. The sign looks like it went for a dip and came out rejuvenated itself. The footbridge up at the hot springs will be replaced this year. Landmark Forest Management from Salmon Arm will be installing the steel and lumber, and Prince George’s Stinger Welding will be supplying steel for the project. Construction is slated to start May 1, with completion scheduled for June 30.

Auditors back again

Chartered accountants Berg, Lehmann have been hired to audit the Village’s 2012 books. The professionals conducted audits for the previous two years as well.

To tree or not to tree... In order to keep the maples that shade the picnic tables near the beach, BC Hydro is planning to move their power lines toward the road out of the reach of the trees. Council voted in favour of Hydro’s plan to cut down the few scrubby evergreens near the road in order to move the lines and preserve the maples. Hydro will be picking up the tab for costs, and will be kicking in $4,000 to replace the trees that are cut down.

Developing economically A one-day workshop on economic development in Castlegar will have attendees from Nakusp. The workshop is geared toward local government and staff, and covers a range of topics and will be taking place on March 27.

Hired Equipment Registration West Kootenay District

The West Kootenay District of the Ministry of Transportation and Infrastructure is now completing Hired Equipment lists for the upcoming fiscal year.

All individuals or companies who are currently registered through the ministry’s offices in Nelson or Grand Forks will be mailed invitations by the end of January to re-register their equipment for the coming fiscal year. Individuals or companies who were not registered in 2012, but who wish to have their equipment listed, are invited to visit the Nelson or Grand Forks office to obtain the appropriate registration forms. You will be required to have Commercial (Comprehensive) General Liability Insurance with minimum $2 million third party liability and a WorkSafe BC clearance letter prior to starting work on any ministry projects. Dump trucks must provide a current weigh slip, front tire size, and manufacturer’s front axle rating. Equipment can only be registered in one area in any given year and must be owned or leased-to-own in order to be eligible for registration. Seniority is not transferable from area to area. The deadline for new registrations for the 2013/2014 fiscal year is March 20, 2013. Late registrations will be accepted, but may appear at the bottom of the open list. Note that there is no charge for registering new equipment or for changing or deleting equipment information already listed. Register by March 20, 2013 at one of these offices:

Salvation from tourism sins offered at talk Claire paradis Arrow Lakes News

Screening the recent Number Five Video Production promotional video created for the Chamber of Commerce and a brief cartoon that illustrated the idea behind the Ten Percent Shift, the tourism presentation on Jan. 29 in Nakusp was off to a good start. Around fifty people from Nakusp, Kaslo, Revelstoke, Hills, Silverton occupied around half of the seats set up in the auditorium and listened as Laurie Page introduced speaker Mike Stolte. Stolte is the executive director of CIEL, the Centre for Innovative Entrepreneurial Leadership in Nelson, and worked for years with Community Futures. He mentioned that the last time he was speaking in Nakusp it was as part of a Business Vitality Index that was done ten years ago. This time, he spoke about the “Seven Deadly Sins of Tourism,” the seven biggest factors that discourage tourists from visiting. Before revealing the dire news, Stolte first highlighted the importance of tourism in general. Since the 1950s, tourism has doubled

each decade, he told the audience. Tourism is responsible for one in ten jobs worldwide and is the fourth largest industry in Canada. Not only that, but other industries are supported by tourism dollars and the impact of tourism can shape communities because visitors can frequently become residents. “Tourism feeds off people’s curiosity about things,” Stolte stated, using the example of people who are drawn to places where famous people died, or unique events occur. And one person’s unique can be another person’s every day, he reminded the audience: sledding is a standard here, for example, but can be an adventure for a visitor. When they were brought up, the Seven Deadly Sins read like a list of what makes a town boring or uninteresting: nothing to do after 6 p.m., no knowledge by locals of what’s around to do, poor internet presence, no community brand, no focus on experiences available to visitors, and most key, thinking of tourism as separate from community vitality. If the take away could be summed up in one point, it would be that developing community

vitality is key to successful tourism. What Stolte pointed to again and again was that people are looking to feel as though they’re having an authentic experience in a town filled with experiences and friendly people just waiting to show them a good time. The more you can convey this with a strong online presence, the better. What is needed to make that happen is the challenge. Ensuring there’s “good stuff” of good quality is important, as is consistency in what’s communicated. Most vital, said Stolte, is collaboration within and between communities, a willingness to work together and put aside grievances. Innovation, an entrepreneurial spirit and outlining a strategy for how to put limited resources to best use are also very important. Unlike tourism of the past, Stolte stressed what communities have found visitors want are complete experiences that make the most of the best parts of the community. And what that takes is investing in people and supporting the unique projects that they are creating.

Tourists are looking for unique experiences, like wine tours, said 4.33 x 5 BW Blackpress CIEL’s Mike Stolte. Claire Paradis/Arrow Lakes News

quota.” It goes on to say they were encouraged to keep Nakusp and area, New Denver and the Slocan Valley in the same riding. The result basically chops the existing BC Southern Interior Riding in two – sticking Nelson, Salmo and Kaslo with Kootenay— Columbia; and creating the new riding of South Okanagan—West Kootenay, which includes Nakusp, Trail, Castlegar, Fruitvale, Grand Forks, Penticton and Osoyoos. The B.C. Southern Interior riding has traditionally been an NDP stronghold, while KootenayColumbia and the south Okanagan are traditionally Conservative, meaning the proposed changes could have significant

political implications. They add almost 20,000 people from heavilyNDP areas to Kootenay—Columbia, which could have an impact on future elections in a riding that the Conservative Party (and the Reform Party before it) has dominated for 20 years. John Chisamore, the president of the Kootenay—Columbia NDP riding association said the changes should be helpful to his party. “Is it going to be enough to get us up close to the Conservative numbers?” he said. “I know that when we did look at it, it wasn’t going to be enough but it would give us a better chance.” Atamanenko is in Russia on a trade mission and was unavailable for comment. Under the new alignment, however, the NDP politician would lose Nelson, a party stronghold, to the Kootenay—Columbia

opinion

If we build it, they will come

Claire Paradis Your Editor What struck me most about Mike Stolte’s presentation weren’t the interesting statistics but what seemed to be the underlying message: if you build it, they will come. Marketing where we live and what we’ve got hinges on a few key things, and maybe focusing on those things in themselves is more important than doing it so we can tell the world and capture tourism dollars. Stolte’s presentation kept coming back to building the same things that create a thriving community. Friendly people who welcome newcomers and who work together to create more opportunities in the community, sharing information, getting new projects going: these are all things that build a place attractive to residents and visitors alike, and don’t need profit as a motivation to get started. It’s easy to see how more collaboration among groups would cut down on redundant work that unnecessarily eats up time and resources, or different projects that might be at odds with each other.

Being able to put aside grievances is clearly necessary to have a community that works together, rather than against itself. Not everybody needs to be friends, but being able to at least remain neutral in order to work together on something larger than each person is vital to the success of any community. Thinking about the recent show put on by Luis Mario Ochoa, it’s easy to see more events taking place after six at night is great for a broader community that includes Nakusp. Folks from Edgewood to Silverton and beyond were all there enjoying the energy and warmth cooked up on stage and served to the audience. It was a great moment for people of the region to share a unique experience and mingle with others who loved the music and performance too. Even more than that, the audience was people who love the same mountains and lakes and sky, already sharing in that. There are moments like that where the opportunity is present for people to begin building a vital community within and between towns in the region. Some opportunities are already being developed like the Burton Community Learning Centre and trails through Nakusp ACTS! and there are as many more as there is an ability to see them. Who wouldn’t want to live in a town that has people working together to make amazing things happen? Who wouldn’t want to visit? If we focus on developing what we’ve got where we live, the people are bound to come, no question.

Pet owners need to take responsibility Editor, On Boxing Day a couple were walking their dog off Baerg forest service road. The dog wasn’t on a leash and was allowed to run free through the bush where it was caught in a lawfully set trap and killed. They stated that when they heard their dog yelping they were afraid to go look for the dog or call it back for fear that a bear or cougar would be following the dog back to them. If they were afraid that was going to happen why did they allow the dog to run free without being on a leash?

Most people probably don’t know that it is an offence under the Wildlife Act to let a dog run free in a wildlife area. Wildlife Act section 78 states that a person commits an offence if the person causes or allows a dog to hunt or pursue wildlife or an endangered species or threatened species. Act section 79 subsection 2 states that an officer may kill a dog that is at large in a wildlife management area. ‘At large’ means running free off a leash out of sight and not controlled by their owners. If a person is walking their dog down a highway off leash and the

dog darts out in front of a vehicle and is hit and killed whose fault is it? Is it the driver’s fault or the owner’s fault for not having their dog under control on a leash? Dog owners have a responsibility to keep their dogs under control. There were ribbons up at the beginning of Baerg road warning of a trapline. I am not against the idea of putting up signs warning that a trapline is in the area and I will put them up at the beginning of trapping season.   Harold A Friedenberger Nakusp, B.C.

‘Incidental’ trapping a serious concern Editor, With respect to the recent tragic loss of a dog in the Nakusp area to a legal trap set in a front country area (and near a provincial park), I don’t believe, as one writer submitted, that all dogs on crown land need to be on a leash. If so that is news to me. The conflicts between trappers and people’s pets, including dogs, being part of the trappers’  “incidental catch” has been around for a long time. Our government is remiss in not adopting more proactive policies that recognize that a lot more people are using front country areas and some back country areas today, including walking their dogs, than in the good old days. Current regulations and policies are nothing more than antiquated, favour only the trapper, and will only continue to create more lost pets and escalating conflicts if not updated.

People should be writing to the Minister of Environment asking that traplines bordering front country rural and residential areas should no longer be allowed, and current boundaries of existing traplines should be adjusted to reflect that. Many of the animals that are caught such as pine marten, fishers, lynx, wolverine etc. are ones that many of us prefer to see in the wilds, even if it is only their tracks. These fur bearers should be left alone in front country areas where we live and recreate, for people to enjoy – there’s still lots of back country for trappers to carry our their activities. Additionally, where traplines overlap with winter recreation activities in the back country, notices should be posted that there is an active trapline in the area and any traps along recreation corridors used by the public should by law be legally posted,

as people also take their dogs in the back country. Last but not least, and as I learned when I was a boy and went out with “Tony the Trapper” (i.e. Krasovic) on his trap line in the Sandon Area in the 1950s, the public should be aware of the “incidental by-catch” of innocent birds including Stellar’s Jays, Grey Jays, and various of the resident wood hawks including the listed Northern Goshawk. Go in any trapline area in the summer and you will see their feathers laying near some of the “sets.” I suspect that now that Bald Eagles have returned to our area, that some of them may also be the unfortunate victims of front country traplines.

A rare moment of play seriousness from bandleader Luis Mario Ochoa. The quintet warmed the hearts of valley residents on Jan. 30. Claire Paradis/Arrow Lakes News Claire paradis Arrow Lakes News

It was like standing in line to get on a plane to warm, welcoming Cuba at the Bonnington for the Jan. 30 Luis Mario Ochoa Quintet. Winter’s refugees came from all over the valley to catch the warmth and sunny vibrations, and the excitement was palpable. From the nearly newly born to elders in our communities, everyone was ready to soak up some world music sounds.

This is the first time the Arrow Lakes Arts Council has had what is known as world music, and it was a real treat. The band was fronted by Luis Mario Ochoa himself, a radiant and charming man. His wit and humour engaged the audience between songs, and his voice filled the hall with passion and rich song. The music itself wasn’t all Cuban, but was instead a collection of songs from Latin America. Peruvian ballads were played, and rhumbas, and

much much more. The quintet were excellent players, giving each other room to flex their musical muscles. And there were some incredible muscles to be heard. A drummer, a percussionist, an upright bass player and a piano rounded out the sound, each taking his turn filling the space with beautiful rhythms. The audience was enraptured; it was hard not to get up and dance to the seductive sounds, and there was some serious chair dancing happen-

ing. If this is what happens when the world visits town, let’s start sending out invitations now! After the musicians were done, Nakusp couldn’t let them go, standing for one encore, then another. At last, with every drop of pleasure squeezed from the night, the enchanted listeners filed out into the warm winter evening, their hearts filled with the passion and joy of the music.

Falling roof tiles have closed the aquatic facilities at the Nelson pool. Black Press

A sample from a ceiling tile that fell into the pool at the Nelson and District Community Complex pool has been tested and does not contain asbestos, the Regional District of Central Kootenay announced Thursday. While further testing for hazardous materials is required in order to proceed with full demolition of the partially collapsed ceiling in the pool area, the RDCK can now proceed with plans to undertake repairs at the Aquatic Centre. Because

the tiles don’t contain asbestos, work will cost less to complete. “This is positive news in a week that hasn’t been very positive for anyone at the NDCC,” said Joe Chirico, General Manager of Community Services. “We still have a lot of work to do and we are keenly aware of the impact this closure is having on our staff, our clients and our community.” After ceiling tiles fell into the pool area on January 28, the RDCK completed an initial assessment of the ceiling and has determined that the roof structure and the build-

ing itself are structurally sound. The RDCK is now working on a plan to remove the problem ceiling. The pool including the sauna, steam room and hot tub at the NDCC will remain closed for an undetermined period until the ceiling is removed and necessary renovations completed. The fitness centre including the change rooms and ice arena remain open. Program cancellations are as follows: Pool user groups — all bookings until March 31st are cancelled.

Falcons split weekend double header at home Contributed by Nakusp Minor Hockey

Special to the Arrow Lakes News

The Nakusp Atoms Falcons teams played host to the Kaslo Winterhawks for a double header on Saturday, Jan. 26. The Falcons have a young team with a roster totalling 12 players. On Saturday, the team hit the ice with eight skaters due to illness and injury. Kaslo fielded a team of 16 skaters, six of which are overage. Kaslo opened the scoring but the Falcons battled back and Wyatt Petterson tied the game with the assist going to Devon Coates. Coates then got the goahead goal with the assists going to Petterson and Lucas Robins. End to end play resulted in Kaslo putting three goals in and Nakusp matched each one. Goals were scored by Coates, assisted by

Darion Smith, Coates assisted by Petterson and Petterson assisted by Ledger Coates. The first period ended 5-4 for Nakusp. Early in the second, Kaslo managed to tie it up but the Falcons would go ahead again with back-to-back goals from Petterson assisted by Coates and Aidan Hascarl.

Salmo hosts second Nancy Green Zone Race Contributed by Sandra Harrison, NGSL racers

On Feb. 3, Salmo Ski Hill was a friendly host of the second Nancy Greene zone  race  of the season. The  NG Summit Lake racers had a great turnout with even a few first time racers.  Due to some rain on the hill  the week before, Salmo had to change the schedule of racing from  a slalom course  and  a giant slalom course  to only  a GS course.  The teams were informed that they may only be racing once depending on conditions.  Race officials  then monitored how the snow was holding up through the first run  and determined they could have the racers compete in a second course. Soon the flags were efficiently reset

and the teams did not have to wait long before getting to hit the slopes for their second GS course.  Savannah Olsen, a first time racer, said her favourite part of the day was “skiing with friends after the race.” Everyone enjoyed skiing a great hill for the afternoon while they waited for the race results. Our NGSL teams did great, coming in with third place! Next on the schedule of races Summit Lake ski racers will host a Nancy Greene zone race  on Feb. 17, and teams from four other ski hills will be coming out to compete.   Summit Lake Ski Hill will have their club races on Feb. 24, and everyone is invited to come out, sign up and enjoy a great day on the hill.

Library changes Chair and Librarian this winter isn’t about being able to read or do math, it’s about learning about what you want

and then figuring out how to get it.”

Library from page 1 “When we came in 1977, it was this dusty little place with a lot of Harlequin Romances,” said MacPherson, who has been impressed with the changes wrought over the intervening years. When the news was received that Iseli-Otto was moving on, the board offered the position of interim head librarian to Susan Rogers. “We had offered it to her before Sabina was hired,” Paula Rogers said about the head librarian spot; MacPherson confirmed this was the case. Susan Rogers said she aims to hold the course and get down to the brass tacks balancing the budget in the next six months. “There are no wild aspirations,” she told the Arrow Lakes News. S. Rogers said she will continue to support staff and volunteers and run programs at the community library. Susan Rogers, who will be assuming the role of acting head librarian once Iseli-Otto has departed, started volunteering in 1994 with then librarian Evelyn Goodall. When Goodall retired for the first time, she continued on as assistant librarian with Marilyn Misutka until Evelyn came out of retirement. S. Rogers first worked as head librarian during Goodall’s leave while she toured Italy by bicycle. The stint was during the library’s expansion project, S. Rogers told the Arrow Lakes News, a large undertaking. About a year later, she was up to bat again when Goodall suffered a terrible fall on her bicycle that put her out of commission for six months. The library board will be hiring in six months, and will be posting the position, although Paula Rogers and Barb MacPherson are already confident that Susan would fit the bill. “For transparency reasons, it would be better to post it,” Paula Rogers told the Arrow Lakes News, although she did agree with Barb that Susan could continue on in the position. “We don’t foresee any reason why it wouldn’t work out,” said Barb about Susan staying on as the head librarian. “It sounds pretty hopeful.” For her part, Susan Rogers is sad to see Iseli-Otto go.

“We’ll really miss her spirit, passion, energy and enthusiasm,” she said Susan Rogers about the outgoing librarian. “She infused new life into the library.” Along with bringing new blood to the library, IseliOtto also introduced new books into the collection, said S. Rogers. One of the additional changes coming with Sabina’s departure will be a shift from four staff members to three, which will be better for finances, said Paula Rogers. Library staff will now be comprised of Susan Rogers, Cindy McNaughton, and Patty Riley, all of whom bring a variety of skills and experience as well as a great love of the library to their work. McNaughton herself also started in the 90s, and recalled working with Marilyn Misutka when the library shared space with the Village office. “I moved away for a few years and upon my return in 2009 volunteered at the front desk of our new and lovely library,” she told the Arrow Lakes News. When Goodall was taken out of circulation by her bicycle accident, McNaughton was offered a staff position. Over the last two years, McNaughton has focused on increasing her professional skills and has completed certification in many domains including Public Library Administration, Collection Development and Acquisitions, and Reference and Information Services. In 2012, she also received her diploma in the Community Library Training Program. McNaughton will miss IseliOtto and the environment she fostered at the library. “She made me feel that my ideas and input were important and valid,” said McNaughton. “She knew that a library is an institution that should show tolerance, fairness and access to knowledge to all.” The third staff member Patty Riley started in the late 90s, although she took a break for personal reasons but was back in 2008. “I learned more about interlibrary loans and cataloguing,” Riley told the Arrow Lakes News. She also began filling in for Susan or Sabina when they were away. “My library training has been on the job and on-line workshops offered by library association.”  Riley is also a huge library fan: “I love everything about working at the library–books, patrons, great

co-workers and volunteers.” Outgoing librarian Iseli-Otto will be missed by her too. “I’m going to miss Sabina at the library immensely,” she said, “She is always open to new ideas, and is amazing at giving a person the confidence to try just about anything.” Iseli-Otto’s warmth and openness made patrons feel great, McNaughton added. “Years of public service and being a past business owner has made me realize that it is the people who work the floor or the front desks make the difference.” McNaughton would like to see the library continue the great work Iseli-Otto started. The board will be doing so this year by developing a strategic plan, a suggestion IseliOtto brought to the board. Although she initially thought strategic planning was a bit elaborate for the small library, P. Rogers confirmed that the library board will be doing a strategic plan this year. “The push is to expand the library into the community,” she told the Arrow Lakes News, and finding ways that the library can be useful to the community as a whole. Libraries, even the Nakusp Public Library, can be daunting to some people, a dynamic that former librarian Iseli-Otto would like to see changed. “People are afraid of going into libraries for a lot of reasons,” she told the Arrow Lakes News, “and I think that the conversations about those reasons need to go on forever because they’ll always be a part of every library’s reality. “I heard people were afraid because they don’t know what’s at the top of the stairs. I heard they’d lost books from a library once,” she listed as a couple of reasons that people might find the library intimidating. “I don’t know how it could be more welcoming,” said new chair MacPherson who sees the library as a community space and is amazed people in town are intimidated by the library. Iseli-Otto sees libraries as a tool and resource, “a warm place you can always go” that could be the place where lifelong literacy begins. “Literacy means having the skills to do whatever you think is the most important thing to do with your life,” she explained. “Literacy

Take a stroll through your neighbourhood during Heritage Week Contributed by Sharon Montgomery

Did you know What’s Brewing On Broadway was a shoe repair shop in a former incarnation? Explore your local history this Heritage Week and discover the secrets of the past right in your backyard. Photo courtesy Arrow Lakes Historical Society

The Nakusp Museum would like to invite you on a walk through the commercial region of Broadway Street in anticipation of Heritage Week (Feb. 18-24). Starting with What’s Brewing on Broadway... it was originally built in 1926 as Morrison’s Pool Hall and Barbershop and is a late example of a false-fronted building giving it the impression of being larger. Moving on to Bon Marche, built in 1897, it began as Pat Burns Butcher Shop and was one of the original buildings on Broadway. Mrs Herridge bought the business in 1910 and named it Bon Marche. The buildings where you now find Re-Awakening Health Centre and Prima Materia were built in 1922. When Lewis Edwards lost his waterfront office due to fire, he built this block to house his insurance business, telephone office and drug store. An overhang still protects pedestrians from winter snow. Nakusp General Store was built two years later in 1924. This was a former ice cream parlour, Red and White Grocery and butcher shop along

with living quarters in the rear. Cut Rite Meats was built in 1943 and a typical curved facade for 40s garages reveals this former Esso Station’s true lineage which was also a Greyhound depot. As a very young girl, I remember that after the bus from Nelson disembarked the passengers, a few of us young ones were allowed to board the bus and go for a short ride around the block with the driver to where he parked the bus for the night. Fun times in a small town! True North Forestry was built in 1933 and was originally called the Pine Lodge. It served as a rooming house for new young school teachers. Next door the old Moseley home, built in 1924, was used to operate a nursery. Currently it is a bakery and tea house offering drive through coffee in the alley. Spicer Farm was established in 1897 and was originally owned by the Genelle family who started Nakusp’s first saw mill in 1893. Sam Henry, a rich Chinese man expanded it into a market garden and later it was a dairy owned by the Buesnell brothers. Chris Spicer bought

it next and his daughter runs it today even after most of the good land was flooded out in 1968. Moving onto Nakusp waterfront. The creation of the Keenleyside Dam flooded our commercial waterfront, railway train station, government wharf, mills, motels, houses etc, so BC Hydro constructed the new walkway. The Leland Hotel was built in 1892 and is considered the oldest operating hotel in B.C. made of wood! Nakusp Library and Museum was built in 1912 and was originally Nakusp’s third school and then ultimately a high school with out buildings. Recently the Historical Society has embarked on a substantial addition to the building to house the archives, a permanent home to preserve the history of our area. The Museum will use one room of this addition as a new exhibit room. We hope to raise enough funds this spring that we can add to the Archives Raise the Roof building fund to help with the project.
