Elizabeth Lake project to be completed in spring Submitted

grant funding for projects like the Elizabeth Lake entrance has been in place for many years. Administration is provided a budget for the

The beautification project at the Elizabeth Lake entrance to the City of Cranbrook will be completed by late spring. Whether or not the project will be completed as it is currently envisioned will be determined through Council budget deliberations to be held later this month. This follows concerns raised by Councillor Denise Pallesen at the Monday February 4 Council meeting, to which she indicated she was alarmed by how far the project had moved ahead, without Council approving a larger project. “I appreciate that Councillor Pallesen feels as though she was not in the loop on the Elizabeth Lake project,” said Cranbrook Mayor Wayne Stetski. “The reality is any member of Council, myself included, is always welcome to ask Administration for information on any project happening within the City at any time.” The process that the City follows around budgeting and accessing

project, by approval of Council. From there, Administration works with staff and stakeholders to flesh out the project, and works with various levels of government and other potential funding bodies like Columbia Basin Trust to apply for grant

funding if it is available. In the case of the Elizabeth Lake entrance, Administration expects the need for additional funding to complete the project as proposed, and has submitted the budget request to Council for discussion and deliberation during the 2013

budget process. “If Council believes the process needs to be reviewed, then that is something we need to take to Administration,” Stetski adds. The next budget meeting is set for Monday February 25 from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Province backs off cut to school budgets Submitted Education Minister Don McRae has announced a complete reversal of the government’s previous directive that local school boards must fund a retroactive 1.5% wage increase for school staff out of their existing budgets. McRae acknowledged that the reversal followed the unanimous rejection of the government’s directive by school boards across the province. “You have indicated to me quite clearly that in light of budget uncertainties and the timing of district budget process that the savings cannot be generated without either reducing service levels or transferring costs to the public,” said McRae in a January 23rd, 2013 letter sent to all school boards. The Minister’s directive came under the province’s Cooperative Gains Mandate in which public sector employers were offered the ability to negotiate modest wage increases as long as those increases could be found within existing budgets, service delivery levels are maintained, and costs are not passed on to the public. According to School District 5 (SD5) Board chair, Frank Lento, the Board is satisfied with McRae’s response but still wonders at the logic of the original directive. “I think the Minister has recognized somewhat belatedly that the government’s struggles with financial management shouldn’t fall on the backs of our students,” said Lento. “Indeed, the way to deal with our fiscal challenges should be through investing even more in the education of our children so that each has the tools to succeed in the future economy. That’s what I call ‘cooperative gains’.”

Wayne

In December I wrote about my first year as your Mayor. It was a privilege and a pleasure to serve you due to the great people of Cranbrook who are passionate about, and committed to, this place we call Home. I’d now like to take a brief look at some priorities for the year ahead. We are currently in the middle of the process to finalize our 2013 budget and set the tax rates. It’s been great to see the increased interest by the public in attending Council’s discussions and debates – the next two meetings are scheduled for Feb. 14 and Feb. 25 from 3 PM to 6 PM in Council Chambers at City Hall. There are a number of proposed capital expenditures being considered for 2013 including a new Fire Hall Training Ground across the tracks in Slaterville ($165,000), new washrooms in the public library ($175,000), sidewalk repairs and improvements ($100,000), storm sewer replacement ($350,000), road repairs ($1,943,929), sewer pipe repairs and replacements ($390,000), airport runway electrical and repaving ($255,000), deep water well rehabilitation ($125,000), purchase of an electrical or hybrid vehicle ($50,000), Zamboni replacement ($110,000), replacement of a road sweeper ($275,000) and a Hwy 3 Overpass/Feasibility study ($100,000). These are just some of the items

we are looking at but they do provide a good sampling of the many services that city staff provide to all of us. It is expected there will be a surplus from our 2012 budget and Council are being asked to consider funding a number of important projects using the 2012 surplus. A sample of these include: providing high speed fibre optic to two downtown blocks ($100,000), providing wheelchair access to the RCMP building ($80,000), fixing up clock tower square (150,000), completing the Elizabeth Lake Welcome to Cranbrook project ($59,948), stabilizing the banks of Joseph Creek behind the Save On Foods mall ($50,000), CPR tracks road crossing replacement for 3rd St. NW ($91,000), purchase of an emergency portable electrical generator ($140,000), new roof for the Studio Stage Door ($15,000), and new garbage containers along Rotary Trail (waiting on a cost estimate). Again, this is not a complete list but, as you can see, funding or not funding these new items does have an impact on the quality of life in our community. While the budget is currently taking a lot of Council’s time there are many other priorities including: • Completing the new sign bylaw • Implementing recommendations from the Chamber’s 2012 Barriers to Business report • Downtown revitalization encouraging mixed commercial and residential development

in the downtown core • Updating Cranbrook’s Official Community Plan • Producing a report with recommendations through the new Hwy 3 Committee of Council that will include short and long term improvements to the Strip • Working with youth to ensure a Youth Friendly Cranbrook • Working with Habitat for Humanity to build a home in Cranbrook • Bringing service clubs and social agencies together around common projects and objectives • Working with the disabled community to hold an Awareness workshop to better understand their challenges and look for ways to build a better city • Drafting a new Building Code bylaw • Working as the Kootenay Region representative on the BC Mayors Caucus Steering Committee to achieve long term funding for infrastructure with the Federal and Provincial governments. As you can see the list is long and ambitious, and it will take all of us working together to be successful. If there is anything here that excites your interests, or if there is anything major missing that you think Council and/or City Staff should be working on, please let me know. All the best for 2013! The opinions expressed are those of the author and do not necessarily reflect the position of the City of Cranbrook.

Wolfe Creek line reloCation ProjeCt CommenCement BC Hydro will be making system improvements and re-locating the power line in the Wasa—Wolfe Creek area to improve reliability for customers along Wolfe Creek Road. Work will begin March 2013 and is expected to be completed by November 2013. The project will include vegetation clearing work, followed by construction activities and the use of heavy equipment, which could result in higher than normal traffic activity in the area. BC Hydro recognizes the inconvenience that the construction activity may cause, and will complete the work safely and efficiently as possible. If you have any questions, or would like more information about the Wolfe Creek Line Relocation Project, please contact Michael Price, Project Manager at 778 452 6882 or Diane Tammen, Community Relations Manager at 250 489 6862.

Our province’s athletes contributed 8 gold, 6 silver, and 5 bronze medals in this year’s competitions. Participants journeyed to PyeongChang from 87 communities across Canada. Thirteen athletes and eight coaches and mission staff from British Columbia helped Canada set a new record for Special Olympics Team Canada. Robins and Thom will be joined by Jesse Jensen, Neil Rye, Kendall Salanski & Roxanna Podrasky at a Snow Sports Festival in Kelowna from March 1 to 3. The local club also has athletes participating in the Provincial Summer Games in Langley from July 11 to 13.

The Ktunaxa Nation is governed by a nine member Executive Council, which is comprised of the Chiefs of the four Canadian Ktunaxa communities and five Council Chairs which represent the sectors of the KNC: Corporate; Economic; Social Investment; Lands and Resources; and Traditional Knowledge and Language. Each Sector will have a display highlighting their role within the Ktunaxa Nation, with staff there to provide information. Building tours will leave from the Gymnasium on a regular basis, showcasing many of the unique features, such as the original school bell and furnace. As part of the Open House, we are also encouraging visitors to take part in documenting the history of both the Central School and the Ktunaxa,” continued Teneese. “The Ktunaxa deeply value our collective regional history. We feel that it is important to ensure that we archive that history, and we would like to invite the public to bring any photos they may have that involve either the Central School or Ktunaxa.

The building, built in 1909, will become a centre for cultural gatherings and will house a Ktunaxa Nation Museum, for which resource planning is already underway. The building will also have a dedicated space for Ktunaxa Elders to discuss and share cultural values and history. The building will be home to many affiliated organizations including Ktunaxa Kinbasket Treaty Society, St. Eugene Mission Resort Holdings Ltd., Ktunaxa Holdings Ltd., Traditional

In a recent analysis, figures show that the Ktunaxa inject more than $30 million annually into the regional economy. Most revenue is generated from consulting and professional services, along with various Ktunaxa owned enterprises, with less than 3% of core funding coming from AANDC (Department of Indian Affairs). Ktunaxa people have occupied the lands adjacent to the Kootenay and Columbia Rivers and the Arrow Lakes of British Columbia, Canada for more than 10,000 years.

Jewellery is often worth a lot more than market value, at least in your own heart. Because our pieces hold memories and feelings for us, we dread anything related to their theft, loss, or accidental breakage. Is your jewellery covered for such losses under your household insurance policy? If you tackle the subject of jewellery with your insurance broker, he or she will immediately propose all-risks contents coverage for your home. However, this could limit the coverage of your jewellery and other precious objects to 30 percent of their value. Generally speaking, “precious” means jewellery with precious stones, semi-precious, fine, and ornamental stones, gold objects, or such things as watches, cufflinks, powder compacts, and valuable collectibles.

first established by an expert and accepted by the insurance company. The expert, chosen by either you or your insurer, will supply you with documents allowing the insurance company to effectively guarantee your jewellery and to determine a suitable premium. For your part, you must supply new estimates on a regular basis if you believe that the jewellery has increased or diminished in value, which would then lead to a modification of your premium. In case of loss, theft, or breakage, you have to be in possession of any pertinent invoices, estimates, or inheritance descriptions in order for your claim to be approved.

1

Talk to your parents about their fears, needs, priorities, and wishes as they get older.

10

Make sure your parents have a will and power of attorney that is up to date in order to avoid any future problems.

2

Have the name and phone number of your parents’ doctor, lawyer, pharmacist, hair dresser, grocery store, cab service, and seniors’ transportation service in case you should need to call them. 

11

Call them every day or two just to say hello and to see if everything’s alright. If you can’t do this, have family, friends, or volunteers alternate calls or visits.

3

Make a few calls to find out about seniors’ services in your parents’ community, such as meal delivery services, homemaker programs, adult daycare, in-home healthcare, meal companion services, pet therapy programs, etc.

12

Encourage them to stay active. Look into bowling leagues, bingo nights, book clubs for seniors, dance lessons for the elderly, travel tours, seniors’ associations, etc. They will thank you for it.

4

If you live far away, make sure that you have the name of a neighbour, friend, or volunteer who can check in on your parents if there’s trouble.

13

5

Make sure their home is safe. Install smoke detectors that work, install anti-scald devices, fall-proof the house, and make sure there is adequate lighting.

6

Post important phone numbers, including emergency numbers, where they can easily see them.

If you feel that your parents’ driving skills have become questionable, perhaps it’s time to make some changes. Start by elevating their pedals, raising their seat, and installing larger mirrors. Have their eyesight checked by an ophthalmologist and talk to their pharmacist and doctor about their  prescriptions to see  if their medication could be affecting  their driving skills. Look into seniors’driving safety courses.

7

Purchase a medical alert system so that your parents can push a button for help from anywhere in the house.

8

Make their home user-friendly. Use lever-style faucets and cabinet handles, raise toilet seats, install handrails and grab bars, and so on.

9

Visit seniors’ housing facilities so you know what’s out there, and if necessary, put your parents on waiting lists.

Heading into the inevitable with joy and resolve Aging: the one fate that no one can escape. Often it is marked by apprehension, a worry that old age means illness, loss of one’s faculties, and independence. And, of course, we worry that aging means, inevitably, death. This fear tends to gain ground as people reach their fifties, which means that many baby boomers now have to learn to cope with it. Aging has never been easy, but in today’s society we also have to deal with the increasingly pervasive cult of youth and beauty, which implies slim and active bodies — bald heads, bulging waist-

lines, and wrinkles must be hidden away. And now, with supplements and surgeries, mo dern medicine is even offering to reduce the hold old age has on our bodies, at least for a short while. Nevertheless, the reality is that we are living longer, healthier lives than before. As they say, 50 is the new 40! All the same, some people have the mistaken impression that our right to happiness decreases as the number of candles on our birthday cakes increases. In a society where everything occurs at breakneck speed, living for the present and tak-

ing advantage of every moment of pleasure that life brings our way is still the best way to stop the clock. Enjoying a walk with your loved one, a supper with friends, or ice-cream with your grandchildren are great ways to stay young at heart. Of course, time passes and growing older is unavoidable. Our bodies sag and energy fades. But at the end of the line, it’s up to us to choose if we grow into our golden years joyfully or by just fading away.

Keeping skills sharp to compete at work Hiring expert Ira Wolfe says that never before have so many generations worked side by side. Sharing cubicles and staff rooms across the country are what he refers to as Generation Y (under age 30), Generation X (30-46), Baby Boomers (46-64), and the Veterans (born before 1946). Seen optimistically, the combination is synergistic, bringing a complementary collection of views and values to industry and services. On the down side, those same values cause friction and can be counterproductive. The reality is that the veteran and baby boomer cohorts are staying at work longer, because the doldrums of retirement repel them or because a longer lifespan means they need to keep revenue coming in for longer. Either way, the lightning fast development of technology

means the digitalized workplace can leave the older generations feeling out of the loop and passed over when it comes to exciting job challenges. And as more jobs become automated or redundant, the pressure is on to keep up with the times and justify one’s relevance on the labour scene. There are three ways for boomers to keep up with things, according to Wolfe. Older people can help themselves by finding a youthful and savvy technology mentor, for one. They can continue their skills development through on-the-job training opportunities and online or classroom courses. And they can rework their CVs to highlight any technology aspects that show they are ready to integrate into the fast moving digital workplace.

After a lifetime of advancements, who knows what will come next?

Photo submitted

Baby boomers have had the fortune to witness a complete change in the way society communicates, manufactures and transports itself, to name only few of the developments that have occurred in the last 60 years.

Today it seems like a ridiculous fantasy, but not so long ago we all thought we’d be flying in our cars by the twenty-first century. Not all of our predictions were so wild and premature, though. Baby boomers have had the good fortune to be witness to a continual parade of discoveries, inventions, and technological advances which have changed our daily lives forever. And it’s not over yet! Developments have changed the way we communicate, travel, and entertain ourselves. Progress in agriculture and food production, as well as in science and medi-

cine, has given us a longer lifespan and made daily living easier and more comfortable. All of this has taken place under the guidance of the endlessly curious and high-performing baby boomer generation. These pioneers learned how to use objects that are now an integral part of our daily lives: microwave ovens, disposable razors, Velcro, scanners, bar codes, chip cards, fibre optics, computers, GPS, and the Internet. Boomers saw the conquest of space and the first human steps on the moon, the appearance of the contraceptive pill and in vitro fertiliza-

tion, and the first successful heart transplant operation. Baby boomers were there when television become a fixture of life; they watched it go from black and white to colour and from analogue to digital and from huge cabinets to small flat screens — and don’t forget the advent of the now-ubiquitous remote control! Boomers saw film go to video recorders to digital recorders and they saw music go from radio to compact discs and then to MP3 players. They saw rotary telephones become smart phones. Who knows what they will witness next!

Making your visits enjoyable Even though you love your elderly parents or other seniors very much, it can be very difficult to find the time among all your other responsibilities to pay them a visit. That can be especially true if the encounter feels burdensome, such as when maintaining a conversation is a struggle because of hearing loss. But it is possible to turn these visits into truly rewarding occasions for both of you. Here are a few suggestions to help liven up these intergenerational visits: • Ask them to tell you their life stories. You will learn more about the events that forged their characters and the values that guided them. Ask them about their youth and how they met the love of their life. • Do some home cooking with them or bring along home cooked meals inspired by their favourite recipes. Seeing that their knowledge has been passed on will give them personal satisfaction. They might really appreciate being able to enjoy dishes that were so much a part of their favourite family traditions. Even seniors with dementia will be thrilled by this initiative, as smells are a powerful tool in stimulating memories. • Take them out on trips down memory lane or, if they’re losing their mobility, look at photographs together of family vacations, the places they lived, or their schools. This could awaken many happy memories, helping to bring you closer together. • Play together: cards, puzzles, or board games are an easy and effective way to occupy the time and facilitate pleasant conversation. • If it suits the person, touch them whenever possible. People living alone are often deprived of human contact, especially human touch — so essential to the wellbeing of the soul.

Things to think about before moving your parents to live with you It’s true that there are all kinds of homes for seniors, but many people believe that welcoming a still-independent elderly parent into your home can be a win-win situation, despite the hectic pace of modern life. In such a situation, seniors would have to be able to adapt to the dynamics of their new home. That could be a difficult feat for them, especially if they consider that they are past the age of being able to cope well with big changes. Indeed, their best interests must always be kept in mind. A good, clear agreement on the living situation

Having your aging parents move in with you is a momentous decision that shouldn’t be taken lightly.

stage as peaceful as possible. However, close emotional ties to parents may cause caregivers to devote too much time to them, so much that they neglect their own well-being. Caregivers have to learn to take care of themselves and ask for help from family, friends, community organizations, or healthcare services, when necessary. Before making such a serious decision, be sure to put all the cards on the table and ensure that everyone concerned gets their say in the matter. Follow the dictates of your heart, but don’t forget to listen to reason.

is vital to their wellbeing. Honest, open, and respectful communications, compatibility of temperaments, and the sharing of the same values are all essential in maintaining harmony. After all, visiting one another and living under the same roof are two very different things. The context is quite different when you welcome into your home a parent who is losing their independence, who suffers from a serious illness, or who requires palliative care. In your role as carer you will have to put aside your own life priorities for the time being, in order to make this difficult

New Dawn Developments has started to build the Meadowlark Showhome in Cranbrook’s new Elizabeth Lake Ridge Subdivision and the kitchen will not disappoint. Alison Smith, Interior Designer and Cabinet Specialist for New Dawn, describes the kitchen, “We worked with Gipman Millworks on this project. Gipman’s custom wide rail shaker cabinets will be showcased throughout the house.” “To create a clean, crisp look, we went with maple cabinets in the color ‘popcorn’ which is a classic soft white to keep the space open and bright’ said Smith. “One of my favorite features of the kitchen is the 9 foot long island with extended eating bar. The counter space this provides is amazing never mind the amount of people it can hold.” There will be an abundance of drawers that have the added benefit of soft closures to eliminate slamming. Crown molding on top of the upper cabinets and a light valance below will add interesting detail. “You won’t be short on storage with the large double door pantry in the kitchen located next to the patio doors to the rear deck” Smith says. Smith added, “the window over the kitchen sink is massive at 7 feet long! Doing dishes won’t be such a chore

Countertops and you A large variety of kitchen countertops is available for both traditional and modern kitchens. Here are a few suggestions to guide you in choosing. • Wood worktops blend well in a traditional kitchen. Wood is available in a wide range of species and colours and offers warmth and afford-

ability. Disadvantages include poor resistance to stains, burns, and scratches. Wood countertops also require regular care and maintenance. • Natural stone gives a luxurious rustic look and comes in a wide variety of types and colours. It is renowned for its low maintenance requirements and gran-

ite in particular is resistant to heat, stains, and scratches. Some stone surfaces are expensive and require professional installation. • Tiling combines resistance, ease of maintenance, and low cost. The classic look of tiles has been updated, thanks to larger sizes and new colours and patterns that imitate wood and stone. • Metal, stainless steel, and glass surfaces come in diverse finishes to

create a contemporary look. Stainless steel is hygienic and extremely resistant to heat and shocks but does require a lot of maintenance. Glass is easy to keep clean and offers the possibility of infused colours and embedded textures. • Concrete countertops are extremely resistant to heat and shocks and are available in a variety of designs and finishes.

natural health by Trent Brereton, ND

Hay fever: an ounce of prevention...

There is an old saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. This proverb is true of reactions to dust, grasses and trees. If you wait until you are sneezing, itching and dripping, treatment becomes more difficult than if you plan ahead and seek treatment before the seasonal reactions begin. Regardless of what type of treatment you seek, diet and general health play a major role in how strong your symptoms are. Now is the time to clean up how you eat and to improve your fitness. As a general rule, eating less sugar, less wheat and less dairy will improve your digestion which in turn will make your immune system less reactive and might, all on it's own, ease your seasonal reactions. The more fit you are, the more effective your immune system is at reacting appropriately to your environment. The symptoms of hay fever are just the side effects of your immune system trying to deal with a perceived threat. Obviously, there is noth-

ing inherently threatening about a blade of grass or cottonwood pollen. However, if your immune system sees them as threats, it will react and the sneezing, itching, dripping are all attempts by your body to get rid of the perceived problem. If you are seeking hay fever treatment from an allergist, now is the time to start or continue your shots. If you are seeking a less invasive treatment for your seasonal intolerances, BIE (Bioelectric Intolerance Elimination) is a safe and effective option. This method does not require needles and typically gives relief after 1 to 4 treatments. The BIE process uses an instrument called a GSR120 which directs a low current frequency associated with the substances you react to (dust, grasses, trees etc) into specific acupuncture points. The treatment helps the body recognize the substances for what they are, normal environmental agents (NOT threats) and in so doing alleviates the symptoms of seasonal intolerance.

BIE can help.

The 2013 Tiguan combines A vehicle that keeps its cool space, economy and style no matter where you drive it

PHOTO SUBMITTED

Sporty and tough, the 2013 Kia Sportage still comes with all the bells and whistles.

More spacious than it looks, the Tiguan is economical without sacrificing style. Overall: A cute-ute that competes in a tough league, where image, price and practicality are critical. Drivetrain: A 200-horsepower 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder with your choice of six-speed manual or automatic transmissions. Since its 2012 facial procedure, the Tiguan now appears even more like its larger Touareg sibling. Its horizontal grille splits bixenon (high and low beam) headlights and U-shaped LED (light emitting diode) on top-end models, while the rear taillights received some more subtle tweaks. Physically, the Tiguan (the splicing of the words tiger

and iguana) competes in the same class as the Honda CR-V, Nissan Rogue, Ford Escape and Kia Sportage, to name just a few. Equally sharp looking is the interior that carries over for 2013 with the high-endstyle dash, cleanly tailored seats and premium carpeting. Rear passengers will appreciate the six inches of fore/aft travel as well as the reclining 60/40 split seat back. For more cargo space, the rear seat back, as well as the front passenger bucket, can fold flat. The space is made even more generous due to the extra-low load floor. Tiguan is powered by a 200-horse 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder

PHOTO SUBMITTED

connected to a six-speed manual transmission or optional six-speed automatic. Tiguan runs the spectrum with three trim levels — with the usual Trendline, Comfortline and Highline pals hanging around — and plenty of base equipment of the air/cruise/power variety. The top-end Highline wants for nothing and comes with leather seats, climate control, 18-inch wheels and a lot more for your on-theroad-price of $40,000.

Overall: Cooler, sportier, roomier and more costly than the Soul and with optional all-wheel-drive. Drivetrain: Base 2.4-litre four-cylinder or 2.0-litre turbo; four-wheel-drive system can lock up the front and rear axles for improved off-road agility. It’s tough to fault the Sportage, which covers a fairly broad spectrum of price, features and performance. The base powerplant is a 176-horsepower 2.4-litre four-cylinder that’s hooked to a six-speed manual transmission (available only in base front-wheel-drive models). A six-speed automatic is optional and returns slightly better fuel economy than the manual. Optional is a 260-horsepower turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder. The Sportage is a front

driver by nature, while the optional all-wheel-drive system directs 100 per cent of the engine’s torque to the front wheels until tire slip is detected. At that point, the required power is instantly deployed to the rear wheels. Additionally, a manually selected “Lock Mode” allows for a fixed 50:50 torque split at speeds up to 40 km-h for those times when sustained maximum traction is required. You can get either engine in front- or all-wheel-drive models. The base LX Sportage includes Kia’s UVO in-car hands-free entertainment and communication system along with air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth short-range wireless connectivity and Hill Start Assist (that prevents the vehicle from rolling backward down a hill while in gear). Downhill brake control

maintains a fixed forward speed without the driver having to touch the brake pedal, which prevents a runaway situation. The EX features dual-zone climate control, power driver’s seat, keyless entry, glovebox cooler, re-tuned high-performance shocks and 18-inch wheels (16s are standard). The EX Luxury adds leather seats and a panoramic sunroof, while the top-line SX features the turbocharged engine, unique body pieces and wheels, and more supportive seats. An upgraded audio system, push-button start or even a cargo cover are all optional, as is a panoramic sunroof, heated and cooled front seats (offered when the leather seat-cover option is specified.)
