Embedded premieres in Revelstoke Roxy Theatre to Revelstoke-made low budget feature film Canada debut at Roxy launch film society Facing challenging economic conditions, Roxy Theatre owner Carl Rankin launches Revy Film Society to attract grassroots community involvement and new content, direction for town hub Aaron Orlando
Roxy Theatre owner Carl Rankin has formed a new independent film society and wants energetic community members to get involved as directors and members to help attract new initiatives, new crowds and new attractions to the heritage Roxy Theatre. The realtor and businessperson tells me he’s a passionate film fan, but he’s just spread too thin to take on many initiatives needed to keep the Mackenzie Avenue anchor afloat. Rankin tells me his age a few times (and tells me not to print it as many times) and concedes he needs an injection of youthful, enthusiastic theatre fans who’ll bring new ideas and social networking skills to help the theatre. Big screen TVs, online access to media and changing socialization patterns are squeezing small town movie theatres. But also, the big studio system takes its toll, demanding a bigger and bigger cut of door receipts, rang-
ing from about 50—70 per cent of the door for big blockbusters. “You make $5,000 a week on a big movie and you have to give away $3,000. It’s not fun,” Rankin said. Rankin was inspired by a story in the Globe and Mail that featured the extensive measures community groups on Vancouver Island were taking to preserve their hometown theatres, including raising tens of thousands to keep the doors open on assets that served as de facto community centres. He’s hoping to generate some of that momentum here. What new ideas does he want to pursue with the newly-minted Revy Film Society? He’s looking to partner with prominent film festivals in Toronto and Vancouver to see about bringing their offerings here. The Roxy has a state-of-the-art digital system with the “best digital, the best sound” that can be used for live events like playoff hockey, concerts or

Revelstoke audiences will finally get a look at their home town through the lens of Revelstoke-born director Micheal Bafaro when Embedded has its Canadian premiere at the Roxy Theatre on Feb. 28. The low-budget ‘found film’ genre thriller was filmed here in 2010 and features lots of local tal-
ent in small parts and as extras. Even mayor David Raven helped out with the production when he toured the area with the producers to do some amateur location scouting. The retired forester showed them around the Blanket Creek area where many of the outdoor scenes were filmed. Embedded tells the tale of a former big-time television reporter whose career has taken
a turn for the worse. He’s reporting from rural Montana when he’s called to the fictional town of Hatts Creek, to cover the story of a 12-year-old boy who’s gone missing in the woods. The reporter joins the police and a posse of hunters who form a search party (hence ‘Embedded’) and venture into the forest. The townsfolk suspect a grizzly

Men in crisis: Focusing on mental health services in Revelstoke Does Revelstoke have adequate mental health and counselling services for men? What more can be done to help men struggling through crisis? Part one of a two-part exploration. Aaron Orlando
Does Revelstoke have adequate mental health and counselling services for men in crisis? Two high profile incidents in the past months involving men who ended their lives has underscored the need for awareness of services and resources available and a discussion on what more can be done in Revelstoke.
As a community, Revelstoke is full of passionate and active advocates for a spectrum of community services. High profile local organizations and individuals champion services for children, youth, seniors, women or families – I’m sure you could list a couple for each category. Who would you turn to if your brother, son or father was struggling with family challenges, mental health conditions, relationship
breakdown of substance abuse problems? In a two-part series, we speak with service providers and advocates about services currently available in the community and what more can be done.
Interior Health emphasizes responsive network of services I spoke with two senior mental health representatives at Interior Health on conference call. Cliff
Cross is the Director of Mental Health and Substance Use Services for Interior Health’s community integration portfolio. Diana Gawne is the Mental Health and Substance Use manager for Vernon, Revelstoke and Salmon Arm. Gawne, who grew up at Rogers Pass and Revelstoke, explains that our community has high levels of medical mental health services compared to regional communities of a similar size. While the services may not have as high a public profile as others offered in the community, Cross and Gawne emphasize that there are a range of mental health
and counselling services available through an accessible network At Queen Victoria Hospital, staff include a full-time psychiatrist, a full-time nurse clinician, counselling services, a full-time substance use clinician, and part-time workers in counselling, life skills and community support outreach. The services in Revelstoke are linked to regional programs and services, including a 17-bed mental health unit in Vernon. “The resources in Revelstoke stack up better than anywhere,” Cross said.

Revelstoke Golf Club woes add up to $600,000 bill for taxpayers City taxpayers on the hook for unexpected $592,000 bill after major woes uncovered at Revelstoke Golf Club Aaron Orlando
Civic notes from the Feb. 12 city council meeting. *** You don’t golf, so you don’t pay green fees, right? Think again. City council was confronted with an unexpected $592,000 bill at their Feb. 12 meeting after a staff investigation into the Revelstoke Golf Club clubhouse and out-buildings found many engineering issues that will need remediation, some immediately. The report notes the buildings at the golf course are owned by the city and that taxpayers are liable for any issues arising from the problems. The facilities are managed by the Revelstoke Golf Club. The problems include structural issues in the clubhouse and some outbuildings, as well as electrical and plumbing deficiencies. City engineering director Mike Thomas said about $45,000 was needed right now to deal with lifesafety issues. Council resolved to ask the city’s economic development office to see if there was outside funding available for the renovations. In discussion, council conceded the city was on the hook for the costs. “This is a $600,000 bill at the end of the day,” said mayor David Raven. They discussed the need for a five-year business plan for the club. The Times Review asked how the facility could be left for management by an independent club without adequate city oversight, yet tax-
payers were responsible for liability and the bill. Mayor Raven said issues became apparent last year and that the city had been working on the problems behind the scenes. “There’s no question that the outcome we’re faced with here is finally the first time that we’ve actually got a good number and a good look at those buildings,” Raven said. Coun. Tony Scarcella oversees the club as part of his council portfolio. He said the club had operated on a year-to-year basis and were now working with the city to come up with a five-year business plan.
Spruce trees at Revelstoke Community Centre to come down A lone protest vote by Coun. Chris Johnston wasn’t enough to save the two large spruce trees in the community centre parking lot, which council scheduled for an appointment with a chainsaw to make way for a new bus stop. A staff report outlined plans for the new bus stop requested by the Revelstoke Senior Citizens’ Association, which will include new plants and trees. It also said the spruces were outgrowing their current location and were damaging pavement and possibly the sewer. “I just get the sense that this is a foregone conclusion from staff,” Johnston told his fellow councillors of his objection. “There hasn’t been
a great deal of consultation.” Parks committee representative Gary Starling said the trees “would probably have to come out regardless” because they are overgrown. The city’s environmental advisory committee and the North Columbia Environmental Society had objected to the removals.
City adopts Youth Advisory Committee idea City council began the process to create a Youth Advisory Committee, asking for terms of reference for the new committee. The change came at the request of the staff, who noted the city manages a Columbia Basin Trust contract to hire a youth coordinator. Current coordinator Meghan Shandro has been involved in several youth initiatives and is seeking to “de-silo” youth opportunities in the community.
Micro-Hydro for Revelstoke? Two representatives from the Columbia Power Corporation gave a presentation that outlined the Crown corporation’s activities in the Basin. Council heard the CPC is in the process of evaluating the Duncan Dam for a generation retrofit. The CPC has undertaken projects such as the Waneta, Brilliant and Arrow Lakes generating expansions. In a brief exchange with council, Chief Operating Officer Frank Wszelaki and communications director Audrey Repin said
that partnerships with communities on micro-hydro projects were within the corporation’s mandate.
Council wants sign issue simplification City council provided some advice to staff on the ongoing signage issue, advising them to simplify the process and improve turnaround time. They were responding to a report from staff on an ongoing sign bylaw review. “As long as I’ve been on council it’s always been an issue,” said mayor David Raven of the sign issue. Businesses have complained that city approvals for new signs is a confusing, expensive and time-consuming process. Coun. Chris Johnston said approvals shouldn’t take much more than a week, while Coun. Phil Welock suggested a maximum of 21 days for sign approval. Coun. Gary Starling said onepage instruction sheets could help alleviate the displeasure the city is seeing. The bylaw is in the middle of a revision process that should be completed within the coming months.
Outabounds moves back towards business The Outabounds night club has taken another step towards reopening its doors under new ownership. City council lent their support to an application by the ‘Revelstoke Motor Inn’ (the legal name of the Regent Inn) to transfer a liquor license from the Traverse night club to the Outabounds night club on
First Street West. Regent General Manager Brady Beruschi explained the hotel is closing their Traverse lounge permanently and plans to expand their banquet room into the space. They want to operate Outabounds using that licence. The old liquor licence for the Outabounds club was terminated after the building was foreclosed upon in early 2011. The club was subject to many rumours when it closed unexpectedly, and Revelstoke RCMP confirmed at the time they’d launched a criminal investigation. At a Feb. 12 hearing, Roberta Bobicki of the Revelstoke Credit Union supported the application. The credit union owns the building. She noted the credit union had taken “its largest loss in history” following the implosion of the business under former owners. Bobicki noted the new owners had extensive experience with liquor-primary businesses. There weren’t any formal submissions against the licence transfer during the public process. Several wrote in support. Beruschi explained he plans to operate the club a few nights a week, depending on demand. He said the winter would be peak season. He said the club would employ about 20 or more people. The club had been completely renovated a couple years before it closed. Beruschi said he was ready to open at the start of January, but is still awaiting approval. Council’s approval of the liquor licence transfer is key, but the final decision rests with the provincial Liquor Control and Licencing Branch.
5% city property tax increase is high target for budget Aaron Orlando
Revelstoke city council’s finance committee is working off a five-per cent property tax increase scenario, although the final increase seems likely to drop somewhat as the 2013 budget process nears its end. The committee discussed the five-per cent scenario at their Feb. 12 meeting, one of the last before the budget goes to council for consideration.
The scenario calls for a two-per cent increase in taxation, plus a one-time three-per cent increase to be used to build reserves. City finance director Graham Inglis said the increase amounts to about $100 per year for a home valued at $500,000. A business valued at the same amount would pay an extra $460 in city property taxes. That increase excludes other forms of taxation such as school taxes, regional district taxes, as well as sewer and water rates.
The committee is considering a $7 per year increase in water rates (from $328 to $335), and a $30 increase for sewer rates (from $195 to $225). In a presentation, Inglis said city costs were up over last year. Employment costs are up by 4.7 per cent. Contracted services increased by 8.5 per cent. “Other operating” expenses (a catch-all category) increased by 5.4 per cent. The city will have to take a closer look at its division of tax-
EZ Rock newscaster Bob Crouse dies Black Press
A familiar community voice is now silent. Bob Crouse, morning news anchor at EZ Rock Radio, died last Thursday morning after a long illness.
Crouse worked at the radio station for more than 30 years and was best known for his strong voice, excellence in reporting and love of the job, said Scott Campbell on the morning news Friday. The Salmon Arm-based radio
reporter’s newscasts were also carried on EZ Rock Revelstoke. Campbell said some of Crouse’s best work as a journalist was during the 1998 Salmon Arm-Silver Creek wildfire when he was one of many who worked tirelessly during the
ation burden between residential and commercial ratepayers following a dramatic change in property assessment values announced in early 2013. The B.C. Assessment Authority announced a 29 per cent non-market change increase in total commercial assessed value in Revelstoke this year, while the corresponding total residential value dropped by 3.2 per cent. At the Feb. 12 meeting, city councillor Phil Welock questioned
the taxpayers’ appetite for an increase to boost reserves, saying they are “not going to be happy” with the five per cent figure. The finance committee was scheduled to meet with a budget focus group on Feb. 19 to hear input on the city tax issue. The focus group consists of both residential and commercial taxpayers. The budget process will then move to the city council for further deliberation.
emergency to inform local residents. His efforts did not go unnoticed. Peter Kilby, who had been brought into the emergency operations centre to take charge of the evacuation, offered high praise for Crouse’s efforts. “I really have to compliment you Bob; there’s been no rhetoric,” said Kilby at the time. “You’ve reported
very clearly and without a lot of emotion and what have you, and I think people have responded to that – they’re well-informed.” In a touching salute to Crouse, the station ended the news with his voice and a familiar, “That’s news and weather – I’m Bob Crouse.” There will be no service at his request.

Report criticizes consultation, monitoring in land-use amendment Alex Cooper
A new higher-level plan is needed for the Revelstoke area that better balance the social, environmental and economic interests on the land, says a local environmentalist. “We think there should be a new Revelstoke Higher Level use plan because the demographic has changed. It’s not primarily a logging valley anymore,” said Virginia Thompson of the North Columbia Environmental Society. “Revelstoke isn’t primarily a logging community and I think the process should reflect that and the land use plan should reflect the uses that are here.” Thompson was speaking in response to a report by the Forest Practices Board (FPB) that looked into a 2011 amendment to the Revelstoke Higher Level Plan Order (RHLPO). The amendment changed the area available for timber harvesting to make up for forest set aside to protect caribou habitat. In February 2012, the NCES and Wildsight complained to the FPB that the amendment did not meet the biodiversity objectives of the RHLPO. They asked the FPB to see if enough public consultation was done and whether or not the government properly evaluated the social, economic and environmental impacts of the amendment. The report, titled Biodiversity Management in the Revelstoke Timber Supply Area, goes into detail on how the amendment to the plan was made. The FPB report made several conclusions. First, it said that public consultation met legal requirements but that it was not effective. It says that environmental groups should have been involved earlier in the process. In future plan reviews, “It will be important for public confidence that government find the means and apply techniques that support public engagement and stakeholder participation appropriate to the level of their interest and
nature of their concerns,” the report states. Second, the report says that he social, economic and environmental impacts of the amendment were properly evaluated but that it is “unknown whether the conservation provisions applied in the Revelstoke Timber Supply Area (or, for that matter elsewhere in BC) will actually maintain biodiversity.” “A program of monitoring and scientific study is necessary to know whether land use provisions for biodiversity in the province are working, and to guide adaptive change where required,” the report states. Thompson said the NCES, and other groups such as the snowmobile club, heli- and cat-skiing industry and other user groups, should have been included in the process leading to the amendment to reflect the growing importance of tourism and recreation in the area compared to more than a decade ago when the RHLPO started to be developed. “Tourism is now at least as big as logging here and our point as far as process goes is we should have been involved during the 18 months so they could hear our point of view and not just the logging point of view,” she said, adding that the lack of consultation was symbolic, especially in light of the logging in the Begbie Bench area. Thompson added that Revelstoke should have different biodiversity standards than the rest of the province because of the unique nature of the inland rainforest around here. The plan should also reflect changes in climate change science. She said there was also concern the amendment affected wildlife corridors that could impact mountain caribou recovery. Columbia River-Revelstoke MLA Norm Macdonald, the NDP forestry critic, said the report highlighted the lack of monitoring happening out in the field, as well as the lack of consultation he’s heard about across the province. “The point that I’ve picked up from this report is that before you
even have consultation, you have to have accurate information. It’s a pattern that’s very disconcerting,” he said. “You see it here in Revelstoke, a number of decisions where the community doesn’t feel that it’s properly informed about what’s going on in its own backyard and where its clear that government stewardship has been cut to such an extent that the information that needs to be there for the public is simply not there.” In an e-mail response to questions, Steve Thomson, the Minister of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations, said that

while extended public consultation was optimal, it was not always practice in the current fiscal climate. “We do agree that a more informative ad and maps would be helpful,” he wrote. He defended the ministry’s stewardship practices, saying that compliance and enforcement staff carried out inspections to ensure compliance with regulations and that ministry staff worked with logging companies to ensure sound stewardship practices. He said the Forest and Range Evaluation Program carried out effectiveness assessments on 11
specific values mentioned in the Forest and Range Practices Act, and is being expanded to include other values. “As well, the ministry’s Resource Stewardship Vision and Framework provides the framework for broadening the ministry’s resource stewardship mandate to consider impacts from all resourcedevelopment activities,” he wrote. “The ministry is also developing a cumulative effects assessment framework and has three pilot projects underway in different areas of the province.”
Avalanche expertise featured in German TV doc
German director Frank Firbach films B.C. Ministry of Transportation avalanche control expert Bruce Allen on Feb. 13 as part of a documentary to air on the German NDR television network. The documentary is part of a series that portrays foreigners who work in interesting jobs. Producer Hanno Gerken explained the episode is named ‘Snow Wars’ and will star local highway avalanche control expert Bruce Allen and Jeff Goodrich, Parks Canada senior avalanche forecaster for Mount Revelstoke and Glacier National Parks. The crew will be in town for the next month and return in the summer for more filming. The episode will air in late 2013. This scene will likely not be the highlight of the show; the director shot several angles of Allen walking out of his First Street West office and getting into his ministry truck.

Fire department prevents spread of vehicle fire Alex Cooper
A rapid response by Revelstoke Fire Rescue Services may have prevented a vehicle fire from spreading and destroying a neighbouring home Thursday morning. The fire broke out sometime around 5 a.m. on Thursday, Feb. 14, at Nelles Ranch at 1315 Highway 23 South, in the Begbie Bench area. The fire department was first notified of a vehicle fire at around 5:30 a.m., however while they were on route to the scene, the call was upgraded to a residential structure fire, said fire chief Rob Girard. There were 10 people at the home, some of who were said to be disabled and needed help. 15 fire fighters attended the scene. They put out the fire on a minivan and conducted an aggressive exterior attack to prevent the fire from spreading to the home where the people were. The fire was put out in just under one hour, said Girard. “I am very pleased with this save based on the distance, the number and type of occupants of the residence,” said Girard. "The quick initial attack
by our firefighters really made a difference today.” The home was ventilated to clear out the smoke and the residents have been able to stay there. One volunteer from Emergency Social Services was assisting them. Girard said the fire was likely caused by a vehicle malfunction, but because the home is outside city limits, the fire department does not have jurisdiction to investigate any further.
Jaws of life pry driver from truck The fire department was called out in the evening on Valentine’s Day after a pick-up truck flipped over in the Big Eddy, trapping the driver inside. The truck flipped over at the intersection of Big Eddy and Celgar Roads shortly after 5 p.m. on Feb. 14. “Firefighters had to stabilize the pick up truck that was on its side and then used the jaws of life to remove the patient,” said Fire Chief Rob Girard. First responders then assisted paramedics load the driver into a waiting ambulance and off to Queen Victoria Hospital.

Both drivers were taken to Queen Victoria Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries. The cause of the crash is under investigation, through drugs and alcohol have been ruled out as contributing factors. The crash closed the highway between Revelstoke and Golden for several hours.

Volunteers step up to run Moonlight Ski find revelstoke breaking news at www.revelstoketimesreview.com
Two volunteers have stepped up to run the annual Moonlight Ski in Mt. Revelstoke National Park, continuing a 28-yearold community tradition. John Skrypnyk and Paul Tigchelaar have signed an agreement with Parks Canada to do track setting up the Meadows in the Sky Parkway, allowing the annual event to continue, said Parks spokesperson Marnie DiGiandomenico. "It's wonderful news," she said. The Moonlight Ski will take place on Saturday, Feb. 23, from 4-8 p.m. The event was in jeopardy after budget cuts forced Parks Canada to stop offering winter services in Mt. Revelstoke National Park. That has meant no track setting up the parkway this winter. "It's national direction and we're not supposed to incur costs, and so that makes it tricky," said DiGiandomenico. "For this event to happen, you really need track setting, you need a trail to be broken." While budget cuts has meant Parks can-

Parks employees honoured for decades of service Contributed
Three long-time local Mount Revelstoke and Glacier National Park employees were honoured with the Parks Canada CEO Award of Excellence last week. Bruce McMahon, the recently retired senior avalanche forecaster; Eric Dafoe, a senior avalanche technician; and Brenda Demone, the associate director of the Parks Canada Highway Service Centre, received their awards in a ceremony in front of their colleagues with Parks Canada, the BC Ministry of Transportation, the Canadian Forces and the University of Calgary. Demone also received the 2012 Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. Bruce McMahon was recognized for his important contribution to the field of avalanche control and protection in an outstanding public service career that has spanned more 30 years. He excelled in serving Canadians and in strengthening the avalanche industry as a whole. He developed the Avalanche Terrain Exposure Scale, a tool now recognized in Canada and internationally as the most effective and accurate means of classifying wilderness avalanche terrain. He leaves behind a legacy of innovation and achievement that will be felt for years to come.

A Q&A with the vet charged with the animals’ health ALEX COOPER
Part four of an ongoing column and story series exploring the Revelstoke Caribou Rearing in the Wild maternity penning plan. Helen Schwantje is the wildlife veternarian for the BC Government (meaning she’s the only government employee doing that job). She has been at her position for 20 years and has worked with other captive breeding programs. She will be working with the RCRW stakeholder group to care for the caribou during captivity. Here’s what she had to say about the project: What will your role be with the project? “Originally, when the idea was initiated I was asked my opinion on it and so through that helped them devise a strategy. What made sense? What was the experience in other jurisdictions? As I see it, I provide animal care support for the project in terms of helping them design it so that the animals are taken care of humanely and management is appropriate for wild caribou. That may mean commenting on the type of fencing they use. It certainly will involve how and when they capture the animals, whether or not they’re sedated, how they’re sampled for pregnancy and health. “The care of them during the maternity penning project will be under some of my direction. Not entirely, but some of it. We’ll develop protocols. We haven’t really discussed all of the details in terms of whether I’ll be on site the whole time or whether someone else will be with some veterinary skills. There is a local veterinary clinic that may be deployed – we haven’t discussed that yet. I’ll probably be the go to person for that aspect and setting up protocols for their care. It’s all about animal care and welfare.” What kind of health issues will you be looking at in the caribous? “Number one is we only want pregnant females, so we’ll have to determine pregnancy either at capture or when they’re placed in the pen. We need to make sure that the ani-
mals that are brought in are healthy as well so that they don’t have any long term issues with lameness or poor teeth or things like that. Just initial examination. “If you think about how one would care for livestock in a captive situation during the last few weeks of pregnancy and the first few weeks after birth, after calving or after lambing animals are in close contact, animals will be somewhat stressed so we’re going to be worrying about the cows having healthy deliveries, or at least the space and psychological well being so they will care for their young. If new mothers are disturbed or under a lot of stress then they may not take care of their offspring very well so we want to make sure of that. “In terms of diseases, these are animals that normally calve in isolation, they don’t calve in groups. They don’t tend be in close contact until the calves are a little bit older. Any time you have animals in close contact in a small area you’re going to run the risk of higher parasite loads and more opportunity for transmission of any infectious diseases. We’re not seeing a lot of infectious diseases in caribou in the wild but we really don’t have
a lot of opportunity to examine them and to test them, Especially this group, since they are at low numbers, we haven’t done a ton of health testing of them. There may be something that’s just sort of off-the-wall that we’re not expecting and it may be concentrated more just simply because the animals are in close contact. “If we only have a few cows in there at a time, and obviously their calves, the chance there’s anything infectious that will impact their health is pretty low. Other projects have seen a little bit of parasite issues, so a little bit of diarrhea. Gastrointestinal health might be more of an issue because we’re going to put them on feed they’re not 100 per cent used to. They won’t be able to only select their own feed. We’ll have to supplement them with some pellet food they’re not used to. As they’re getting used to that they may have some GI upset, so we’ll have to watch them on that. How do you go about treating the caribou to stay healthy? Reduce stress, feed them appropriately as much as possible. The other projects have developed ... pelleted rations that appear to work really well. We’ll gradually start them on those kinds of feeds while still providing some natural lichens, and try to do that as slowly as possible. That seems to be fairly effective. The area that is fenced has some natural vegetation there so they will be able to access that a little bit, but after a couple of weeks there won’t be very much there. In terms of stress, providing shelter, providing areas where they can go where they can’t be seen very readily so that they feel secure without people staring at them is really good. The fencing is usually recommended to be something that they can’t see through, so they can’t see us on the outside of the pen. We’ll keep sound down to a minimum, we’ll disturb them as little as possible. If something gets sick, that creates a real challenge. We’ll avoid handling them as much as possible

Advocates see need for men’s support groups, network Men in crisis, from page 1 Although a perception may be that mental health services for men (and all residents) aren’t as visible as other community services, both Cross and Gawne say the support network is responsive. It can be accessed, “in any way that one could imagine,” Gawne said. Individuals, family, friends and anyone within the support network can start the process. Hotlines and websites (see list below) channel community members into support services. Speaking with a doctor is a common route, as is calling up Queen Victoria Hospital or Community Connections Revelstoke. “I think we try to meet people where their needs are,” Gawne said. All of the contacts can channel those making enquiries to appropriate services, and crisis situations are prioritized. In addition to services provided through Interior Health, the health authority partners with the Canadian Mental Health Association to provide programs here. One popular program is called Bounce Back. It’s for those “looking for tools that they can support making changes in their lives,” Gawne said, adding that it had been received well by physicians who referred patients to the program. Another is Living Life to the Full, a 12-hour program that utilizes Cognitive-Behavioural Therapy principles to help participants get inspired to make positive differences in their lives. Cross also pointed out Revelstoke has made strides as a community to better coordinate social services, including mental health and community counselling. “[The City of Revelstoke Social Development Committee] is a really healthy way of providing a focus within a community. It’s a central point – Revelstoke’s on the right track. Identifying where people can gain access for basic services is critical for us all,” Cross said. He sees an opportunity for additional men’s services such as group therapy. “The more we can create safe, positive environments for men to take risks [that are] seen as becoming healthy and not seen as a weakness. Depression is not a weakness, depression is a fact with so many of us in society. How we phrase it and how we look at that deals with that whole stigma for communication,” Cross said. He said there are a spectrum of men’s self-help group models out there. “I think we’re learning that there is benefits for creating safe environments where men are with men and women are with women,” he said. “It’s easier for people to communicate and learn from each other in those settings. But also mixed groups are critical as well.”
Following trauma, daughter urges community to tackle
men’s mental health It may a personal reaction to trauma, or just normal for a Millennial generation used to sharing personal experiences in public; either way, Nanton, Alberta resident Leslie Ralph feels the public needs to know what happened at a fatal Jan. 17, 2013, house fire in Arrow Heights. The 25-year-old escaped the intentionally-set house fire that claimed the life of her 52-year-old father Mike Ralph. She awoke before dawn to a room filling with smoke and escaped by jumping out her window. The fire investigators have yet to complete their report into the traumatic incident, and a regional BC Coroners Service spokesperson said their report is three to six months off. However, Revelstoke RCMP spokesperson Sgt. Kim Hall confirmed police believe the fire was intentionally set by the victim, and are classifying the act as suicide. At Mike Ralph’s funeral, the fact was disclosed openly to mourners. Leslie Ralph didn’t have contact with her father for much of her adult life, and had only been visiting with him in Revelstoke for a few days. He was struggling with a recent separation, but she wasn’t familiar enough with him to judge how much he was impacted — she had just moved to Revelstoke to start a new life here. “Walking into that situation I knew that he was upset and affected by the situation,” she said. “I don’t think I would know where to go if he had [asked for help].” She said her father was also struggling with the recent suicide of his acquaintance Dr. Roger Morrison, and had show her photos of them together. That incident led to national television coverage after a family member questioned the suicide — although police firmly maintain their belief that it was. Both incidents followed family breakup. Leslie Ralph is seeking a public focus on the issues, partly to help her deal with the trauma, but also to spotlight the issues. She said a Global Television crew from Calgary had interviewed her on camera for an upcoming piece. “There’s lots of issues at hand,” she said, urging community members in Revelstoke not to ignore them. She hopes that an exploration of the subject will lead to better awareness of services available and ways they can be improved.
two men on the sub-committee, she notes, but most of those involved were women.) They saw the need for accessible pamphlets describing the services available, and for group therapy initiated by men. She perceives a lack of support services for families and men. In larger communities in B.C., families going through separation are required by the court to take counselling sessions that prepare parents for the challenges of parenting after the divorce. The services are not provided here due to the community’s size. She notes innovative group therapy classes available in other communities that are tailored to appeal to men. One program holds sessions in barber shops, for example. Men experiencing divorce or living in its wake meet to hash over issues together in a supportive environment. Klages feels the format would be good for Revelstoke. She notes that many of her clients struggle with similar circumstances. In a rural resource community, males work in highpaying, sometimes remote jobs — the oil patch, CP Rail, hydro projects, seasonal work, resource camps, remote tourism, forestry — and don’t have good access to their children even before a sepa-
ration or divorce. Afterwards, they felt cut adrift when they lose primary custody and face significant support payments. If not managed well, the resulting tension affects the whole family. She feels the industries that employ men in work situations that are disruptive to normal family patterns should take more responsibility for the consequences, perhaps taking a role in offering services (and some do). “There are lots of services here … but if you’re a man and you’re facing marriage breakdown, where do you go?” Klages asked. “I think there’s some stigma for a man to walk into Community Connections and ask for counselling.” She feels the need for more tailored and targeted services. “Maybe you need to do something that targets men the way we do with women.” We talk about different models for services. Klages feels a group or individual advocates from within the affected community need to come forward to establish targeted services. Not only to deal with the aftermath of crisis, but to help men working through issues to avert crisis. The legal system, said Klages, is a reactionary process that’s not set up to deal with these needs.
Social development coordinator explores work in progress Revelstoke Social Development Coordinator Jill Zacharias said some of the work done by the subcommittee of the Social Development Committee exploring men’s issues has been put into action. The committee focused on supporting single fathers, but then expanded the scope to look at men’s support issues. They completed a Revelstoke Survival Guide that provides links to mental health services in town. The committee has explored parallel topics of substance abuse and youth mental health, and has made strides on those issues. She said that men’s mental health and crisis issues still need work. She noted there has been an increased demand for services by seasonal residents. Mental health providers have seen a “phenomenal number of calls” from temporary residents, further straining service levels. As part of Mental Health Awareness Week (May 6–12, 2013), service providers are plan-

KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION February 25th – 28th, 2013 Parents of Children born in 2008 ~ your child is eligible for Kindergarten in September 2013. In order for the school district to plan for school organization, we will be conducting our annual district-wide Kindergarten registration from February 25th, 2013 – February 28th, 2013. For parents who have yet to indicate their interest in French Immersion, the survey form will be available during the Kindergarten registration. At this time a decision has not been made regarding French Immersion. Parents must register children at their neighbourhood school. If a placement to another school is desired, parents must still enroll at the neighbourhood school and apply for a cross boundary placement through the principal. Registering at a particular school does not necessarily mean that the student will attend that school. Provincial class size limits are in place for Kindergarten and the placement of students is guided by the district’s Student Admission and School Choice policy. It is important that we register all children during the week of February 25th, 2013 to February 28th, 2013. Information regarding Kindergarten programming is available on the Ministry of Education website at http://www.bced.gov.bc.ca/early_learning/fdk/. Registration Details: • • •
Registration times are from 8:15 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. and from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. No early registrations will be taken. Registrations will be dated and timed, and may determine eligibility to attend a specific school.
Please bring: • Your child’s birth certificate/proof of Canadian citizenship or immigration documents. • Current address documentation. • Your child’s Medical Service Plan BC Care Card.

Caribou, from page 7 but if we have to, we’ll treat them like every other animal – more like a cow or a sheep than a horse. But chances are we won’t have to do that very much. That’s what we’re hoping for. We’re hoping to prevent those kind of problems rather than planning too much for them. What about caring for the newborn? Again, reducing stress, leaving them alone is the best. Caribou don’t tend to have a lot of calving issues. Calves are small size, they come out like little torpedoes. They do have long legs and long necks so there is the potential for them to be a little bit tangled up but it’s not often we hear or see caribou cows with difficult births. If something like that occurs, we’re going to have to act very quickly and decisively and relieve any kind of calving problems. Just realign the calf and pull it out if we can. I don’t expect that. I expect the first thing we’ll see is a little guy tottering around in the bush behind its mum, and that’s what we’re hoping for. The key thing is those calves have to get up and nurse as fast possible and that’s certainly what they do in the wild without any assistance from us. If a cow is disturbed, for example if there’s an aggressive second cow or something like that, and maybe it’s a new mom or inexperienced mom, that can result in problems where two cows fight over the same calf, or something like that. That might be a little bit more of an issue just simply because these cows are calving much closer than normal to each other. The other projects I haven’t seen a lot of reports of that so I’m not expecting it but it is something we’re going to have to anticipate and develop a protocol for. What are we going to do if two cows are fighting over a calf? Right now I can’t give you exactly what I’m going to do in that kind of situation but I’m working with some really astute biologists who have a lot of common sense and I think we can figure out something there. As much possible we want to leave them alone to do what they can do on their own. Is there anything else people should know about caring for caribou or issues you’re looking at for this project? It’s a really special opportunity that I think people are going to really be – and I think they are already – really be engaged with because of the mother-child thing. They’re very cute little animals, but we’re not doing this to feed our egos or anything like that. We’re doing this to try to recover a species that, frankly, I wish we didn’t have to. This is a really intensive type of management of a species that should be able to deal with this on its own. It’s not something I particularly like to do. I like being close to wildlife but I’d rather them be out running in the hills. This is a very unusual step that we are being forced to take because of the pressures that are on the caribou population. It’s not something we want to do. We’re being forced to do it. It’s not something that’s natural, although it’s going to give us an amazing opportunity to be close to the species at a time in their lives where they’re really vulnerable. It’s not something we want to do, and I think that’s worth emphasizing. *** The Revelstoke Caribou Rearing in the Wild project is competing for $100,000 in funding through the Shell Fuelling Change program.

V-Day Revelstoke Rising celebration inspires Revelstoke joins with millions around the world to raise awareness of violence against women, children and other vulnerable people with event filled with emotional stories, songs, dance, skits and monologues.

It was an emotional and joyous night at the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre last Thursday as about 100 people came out for Revelstoke Rising – an evening to promote awareness of violence against women, children and other vulnerable people. The event was part of the global V-Day campaign organized by Eve Ensler, the author of the Vagina Monologues and an activist who has sought to create a movement to end violence against women. This year, the aim was to gather one billion people at events across the world In Revelstoke, the night opened with a flash mob dance, as women emerged from all corners of the theatre to perform. Joanne Stacey served as MC. She talked about how at the age of 12 she was told one in four girls would suffer from abuse. She looked at three of her friends – one was abused by her father, two were sexually abused and she was abused emotionally by her step mother. “That’s four out of four,” she said. The event was held to raise money for the Revelstoke Women’s Shelter and the Revelstoke Community Response Network. Nelli Richardson, Otti Brown and Stephanie Melnyk spoke about the role of those two organizations in raising awareness about people who are abused, and helping support them. “I hope we can make our community safer, and violence and abuse in any form will not be tolerated,” said Richardson. Jewelles Smith, a women’s rights activist said that women must not feel afraid to speak about when they’re being abused, and that men must also be made to feel so shameful about abusing a woman they would never even consider it.
The emotional point of the evening was Otti Brown’s deeply personal story of having her son kidnapped by her ex-husband. She got married at the age of 20 and had a son when she was 22, but the marriage was rife with abuse. “I was sure things would get better but in the end, it got worse,” she told the audience. After she left him, he took revenge by kidnapping her son. The first time, it was for a few months. The second time, Brown went eight years not knowing where her baby was until her husband was finally located. “I can’t even begin to describe my mental state after this second time,” she said. Finally, her husband was found and she was reunited with her son. Her ex got two years for kidnapping. Brown thanked everyone who helped her during that period of her life with helping to get her to where she is today. Another poignant moment was the Blanket Skit, where Nelli Richardson read out the story of a woman was being abused. As she read out the story of a woman who was being abused, blankets were put over a woman sitting in the middle. At first people kept making excuses for the husband, and more blankets were added. Then, as the woman started getting support for her problems and people recognized her husband was the problem, the blankets were removed. The evening wasn’t all somber moments – there were also songs sung by Aza Deschamps, Janet Pearson, Paige Makarewicz and Sharlene Foisy. The second half featured local speakers delivering a series of monologues from the book A Memory, A Monologue, a Rant and a Prayer – a collection of writings to stop violence against women and girls edited by Eve Ensler.

BC Heritage Week celebrates homes and neighbourhoods
Mackenzie Avenue, 1898. Upper Town was still in its early development. The buildings only extend to the middle of Mackenzie Avenue between First and Second Streets. Revelstoke Museum & Archives Contributed
This year, British Columbia’s Heritage Week theme is Good Neighbours – Heritage Homes and Neighbourhoods. The importance of historic houses and neighbourhoods to our communities is a theme that many people can relate to. While ornate or decorative historic houses are what many people think of first
when they hear “heritage,” established, stable and attractive neighbourhoods make an equally important contribution to the community, creating a positive sense of well being, enjoyment, and security. This year’s theme explores the character and warmth of historic homes, and the timeless appeal of established older neighbourhoods with vintage house styles, gardens, landscaping, trees and boulevards.
Often close to the town centre and developed in an era when the automobile was a less dominant feature of daily life, older neighbourhoods lend themselves to a more sustainable lifestyle. Neighbourhoods and districts from earlier eras also promote a layered sense of community history and contribute to visual appeal and variety. They enhance community attractiveness and livability.
Confirmation of the broad appeal of these qualities is reflected in the desirability of heritage home ownership, the premium prices generally paid, and the fact that heritage homes hold their value better than other segments of the residential market. The value of the individual heritage home is significantly affected by its context of other well preserved vintage homes – the market
value lies as much with the character of the neighbourhood as with the house itself. There is also the role of heritage home owners who, through their pride of ownership, stewardship, and investment, give a lot to the community. Come out and celebrate Heritage Week in Revelstoke at the following community events: Wednesday, Feb. 20, from 12:15 p.m. to 1 p.m. – The Revelstoke Museum & Archives hosts a special BC Heritage Week Brown Bag History Lunch on historic neighbourhoods. Bring your bag lunch. Coffee and cookies are provided. $5 per person. Saturday, Feb. 23, from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. – The Revelstoke Museum & Archives is hosting a Heritage Week Celebration with the City of Revelstoke and the Community Heritage Commission. Come for the hot beverages and fresh heritage cake, stay to learn about municipal heritage conservation in Revelstoke, view the new First Tracks – History of Skiing in Revelstoke exhibit, explore Revelstoke’s history within the museum exhibits, or find the history of your home using the municipal tax and fire insurance records. Children’s activities will be available. The 2012 City of Revelstoke Heritage Awards will be presented at 1:00 p.m. after which cake will be served. No cost, donations accepted. Saturday, Feb. 23, from 2-4 p.m. – The Revelstoke Railway Museum is hosting a panel of retired railroaders for their foruth annual Heritage Week event. This year’s theme is technological advancements. Held at the Revelstoke Railway Museum. Admission is by donation and members get in free.
Revelstoke’s early years marked by rivalry between neighbourhoods Cathy English
Revelstoke Museum & Archives
Revelstoke is a relatively small community with several distinct neighbourhoods. Heritage Week this year celebrates “Good Neighbours – Heritage Homes and Neighbourhoods”, making this a good time to reflect on how these distinct parts have developed and contributed to make Revelstoke the vibrant community that it is now.
In Revelstoke’s early development, the population was mostly centred on Front and Douglas Streets, with small pockets in other parts of town. The Farwell townsite map of 1885 identifies the community as stretching from Front Street to First Street, and from the CPR bridge to the base of the Douglas Street hill. A dispute with Farwell led the Canadian Pacific Railway to locate its station and yards well outside
of his provincial land grant. A new community, known initially as Revelstoke Station, built up around the new station, with some business buildings located right on Track Street. Business owners who did not want to pay extra shipping charges to have their goods brought to their Front Street stores soon relocated to Mackenzie Avenue or First Street, causing an eventual shift in the downtown. Front Street went
from a bustling business street to its current residential use. Before the shift became complete, there was a great deal of rivalry between the two neighbourhoods. The first fire brigade was created in 1892, with a fire station on Front Street, but by 1899 the residents of Station Townsite, or “Upper Revelstoke” as it was more commonly known, were calling for their own fire brigade and station. Fire Brigade No. 2 was created,
with a new station built behind the old city hall building. Revelstoke also had two post offices, and even separate toboggan runs and tennis clubs. Many of our current neighbourhoods started out as primarly farming areas, including Arrow Heights, Columbia Park, Southside and Big Eddy. It’s interesting to see how the community has shifted and changed over the years.

The Revelstoke Museum & Archives’ poll pitted four dapper men from Revelstoke’s history against each other for the title. Gunnarsen beat out Guy Barber, a jeweller and musician; “Big Jack” Kirkup, a policeman with a love of hunting; and Thomson Edgar Leon Taylor, a businessman and war veteran. Here’s Gunnarsen’s bio, per the museum: I am a charming, athletic, blonde and blue-eyed Norse man. Skiing is in my blood. I’m a Dominion Ski Jump Champion inspired by my mother’s distance ski prowess. I fly without wings atop my father’s hand-built skis and am pushed to be the best by my brothers. I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty and enjoy putting in a hard day’s work. I look better in a wool sweater than most and am proud to serve my country of Canada. I’d like a lady with a sense of adventure who isn’t afraid of a little competition—chasing me down on the slopes; a woman with a joyous heart who inspires courage while awaiting my letters as I serve overseas. My ideal date would be a moonlight ski, enjoying Revelstoke’s starry skies above the clouds while warming my sweetheart’s hands. Pick up line: “If your eyes were stars they would be the most brilliant in the heavens.” Revelstoke Museum & Archives

One Hundred Years Of Helping YOu HOme
Revelstoke Roxy Theatre owner Carl Rankin is seeking new directors and members for the Revy Film Society to help breathe new life into the Mackenzie Avenue theatre. Aaron Orlando/Revelstoke Times Review
tion last fall was very successful and sees lots of room for similar fundraisers that combine popular action lifestyle films with community causes to draw in specialized audiences. The B.C. government recently changed liquor licensing rules to allow theatres to sell wine and beer. Rankin sees the change as an opportunity, but notes the high up-front costs to get the liquor licence. He views the film society
as an opportunity to partner with the theatre to make changes like this happen. It’s about generating “a bunch of good ideas for the film society and a bunch of good ideas for the Roxy,” he said. Rankin extends the invitation to new members of the community. He said the drivers behind many successful film festivals and theatre organizations are part of a new wave. “They’re very young. They’re very driven by
young, well-connected people,” he explained. While the theatre does use standard online social media tools, he feels they could be doing it much more effectively, but it takes time and enthusiasm. “I’m not the guy to head it up,” he said. If you’re interested, find the Roxy Theatre online, or stop by the theatre to speak with Carl Rankin.

Producer and star Don Knodel notes the film has racked up some critical nods. It earned the Best Narrative Feature award at the Lighthouse International Film Festival 2012 in Long Beach, New Jersey, and was nominated for the Best Ensemble Cast award at the 2012 Orlando Film Festival.
Knodel said the film hasn’t yet been picked up for distribution. Director Bafaro, producer and star Knodel and other cast members will be available for a Q&A at the public screenings at the Roxy Theatre on Thursday, Feb. 28 at 5:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. ~with file notes

Nurse Mona Baron, with a picture of the old Queen Victoria Hospital behind her, where she got her start nursing 43 years ago. Alex Cooper/Revelstoke Times Review
Mona Baron retires after 40 years Alex Cooper
When I was asked to a write an article about Nurse Mona about her 43 years working in Revelstoke, I didn’t know her last name. It turns out, I’m not alone. “Lots of my patients don’t even know my last name. They just ask for Mona,” she told me one day earlier this month at the Selkirk Medical Clinic. Mona Baron is retiring this month after 43 years working as a nurse in Revelstoke, including an amazing 40 years at the clinic. She started at the old Queen Victoria Hospital, when it was located where Cooper’s is today, and has seen the clinic through several renovations to what it is today. Baron grew up in the Okanagan where she always wanted to be a nurse. As a little girl she had a doctor’s kit she would play with, she told me. After graduating from high school, she registered in nursing school at the Royal Columbian Hospital in New Westminster, B.C. There, she learned the ins and outs of nursing, alternating between classroom courses and the job training. She came to Revelstoke after graduating in 1970, starting at the old Queen Victoria Hospital. It was winter, it was snowy, and she found a place to live downtown, where she was able to walk to work. “It was quite familiar to me because the Royal Columbian at the time I trained had large wards with 13, 14, 15 people in a ward,” she said. “That’s the same as the old hospital here.” There, she would care for all the patients, bathing them, dressing them, feeding them. “Whatever there was to do, you just did it.” After a year, the hospital
moved to its location in Arrow Heights. Two years later, Baron started working at the Selkirk Medical Clinic, not long after it opened its doors. In 1973, the clinic was much smaller than it is today and there were also fewer doctors than there are now; there are 10 now compared to five when Baron started. As a result, the clinic has gone through two major renovations since it opened. The physical space of the clinic isn’t the only change Baron has noticed. She’s also witnessed the changes in technology that has impacted the job, notably the switch to electronic records from paper records. “Years ago we had to physically enter every lab result and they’d take days to come and we’d have reams and reams of paper,” she said. “Now everything’s in the computer.” Technology has also meant for more knowledgeable patients, who are able to do a bit of selfdiagnosis before showing up at the clinic, and can research drugs online. “But they still need guidance for certain,” she said. What gets people sick hasn’t changed too much, she said. There’s still the basic ailments like heart problems, gastrointestinal issues and stomach problems. Now, though, it’s easier to diagnose patients and get them treatment. Getting back X-ray results is much quicker. No longer do they need to be packaged up and sent to a radiologist out of town; these days the X-rays can be scanned onto a computer and sent to a radiologist for diagnosis instantly. All of this has meant things move at a faster pace. Baron didn’t intend to stay in Revelstoke for 43 years. When she first moved here, it was a place to work for a bit, but then she met her husband Bob, and since they both had good jobs here, they stayed.
“I never ever thought I’d be here in one place that long,” she said. “I didn’t intend to stay that long, it just worked out that way. It was just a job to come to and perhaps move on.” Baron’s colleagues praised her for caring for everyone and everything – she even watered the plants in the clinic – and for making the best lemon squares. “She pulled more warts off more kids than anyone,” one said. “It will be hard to find someone as dedicated.” Baron didn’t have any crazy patient stories to tell me – or if she did she was sticking to nursepatient confidentiality – but she did have some memories, like the day the clinic flooded, or the many Christmas lunches. She spoke fondly of her regular patients that we should treat first thing in the morning before work. She said she loved hearing stories of the old days of Revelstoke from her older patients. There were also the tragedies; two people died in the clinic during her time. “It’s an ordinary life. It’s just I’ve been at it so long,” she said. “There’s been good days and bad days, tragic things that have happened to some of the people in the clinic.” She said she’s ready for retirement; already she’s only been working two days a week for the last few years. Her husband is already retired and they plan on spending their time fly fishing, hiking and in the garden. Her favourite thing about being a nurse was the satisfaction of being able to help people. “Whatever help they needed, I was able to give it,” she said. “I always said the most grateful patients were the ones I cleaned their ears so they could hear again.”
Happy Retirement Mona! The Selkirk Medical Group wishes to thank you for 40 years of dedicated service to Revelstoke. Enjoy your retirement!

It was a Super-G weekend for the Revelstoke Ski Club. The FIS team raced Super-G in Nakiska, and the U-16s raced the same event in Whistler. Super-G requires skills in both slalom and downhill, making it perhaps one of the most intense alpine events. Significant speed is required, and the racers are skiing much of the course in a tuck, or downhill position, even while making technically accurate turns around the gates. Revelstoke sent three athletes to Nakiska, all of whom posted results in the top 15. “I’m very pleased with the effort the kids showed on this race,” said coach Milan Arsovski. “The motivation was high after our last successful training session on our home mountain, so they were keen and ready to race.”
Dominic Unterberger, who’s been racing on the BC team this winter, joined the Revelstoke Club for the Nakiska Super G and came in fifth in two events and sixth on the other. “These were my first Super-G races of the year and I made some great turns on the longer skis,” said Dominic. “I’m quite happy with my results but would have loved to hit the podium.” Dominic’s sister Emily was 12th in one race and 14th in two others, while Jamie Park was 13th and 15th. “Although the first race didn’t go so well for me, my coach and I worked on my mistakes and I put the day behind me, which helped me ski much better the next day,” said Emily. “I ended up with two pretty good results, my best so far this season.” Ski racing is an exacting sport, with podium finishers separated by a blink of an eye, and the top
10 competitors within a very few seconds of each other. In this game, the smallest of mistakes make all the difference. “Emily and Jamie were both very close to the leading girls,” said Milan. “With some more tactical work we will be on the winning track. I am looking forward that the team can carry this momentum and building on it throughout the remainder of the season.” In Whistler, four Revelstoke athletes competed in the Teck Provincial U-16 Speed Championships. Revelstoke scored some top-10 results in this Super-G event, with some tough competition from around the province. Mitch Smith was fifth in one race and eighth in the other, while Max Scharf came in sixth in both races. Callum Hicks was 14th and 17th, and Sonia Schwenck was 22nd and 27th.

It wasn’t quite the world championships Melanie Bernier hoped for. Battling bronchitis, the Revelstoke-based ski mountaineer was unable to achieve her goal or a podium finish at the International Ski Mountaineering Federation World Championships in Puy-St. Vincent, France, last week. Still, she did crack the top 10 in the sprint, and her fellow Revelstokian Andrew McNab reached
the semi-finals in the same event – a best ever finish for him. The world championships consisted of five events: a team race, a sprint (a frantic and short up and down race), the individual race (featuring a number of long climbs, descents and boot packs), the vertical (a single climb and descent), and the team relay race. Here are the results of Revelstoke’s two competitors: Andrew McNab: • 15th (out of 34) in the team

Grizzlies look to de-feather Eagles in round one of playoffs Alex Cooper
Last year, it was heartbreak for the Revelstoke Grizzlies. After winning the division, they were upset by the Sicamous Eagles, a team that finished 32 points behind them, in seven games. This year, the two teams are once again set to play each other in the first round of the KIJHL playoffs, but this time the roles are reversed. This year, it’s Sicamous that goes into the playoffs with a better record, having finished 13 points ahead of Revelstoke in the standings. Grizzlies’ coach Kevin Kraus said there should be extra motivated to beat the Eagles, especially for the nine veterans that were on the team last year. “We do have a young group but we also have a good older group that was here last year and I think that pain is still around,” said coach Kevin Kraus. “I think there’s a little bit of extra drive to beat them” The teams ended up much closer in the standings than last year and the season series between the two teams was about as close as it could get. Both teams won three times in regulation, they tied once, and Sicamous won once in overtime.
They also scored an equal amount of goals – 26 each. The last time the two teams faced off, on Feb. 3, Sicamous won 2-1 thanks to two goals in the final two minutes. “If we play the style of hockey we should be playing and play smart, simple good defense, I think we can shut down their top end guys,” said Kraus. Revelstoke finished off the regular season with a two wins and a loss in its final weekend. On Friday, Tyler Reay had two goals and assist and affiliate player Hayden Chase, a 15-year-old from Vernon, had a goal and an assist, as Revelstoke beat the Kamloops Storm 3-2 in Revelstoke. On Saturday, the two teams faced off in Kamloops. Austin Donaldson and TJ Christensen scored for Revelstoke, but three third period goals by the Kamloops Storm gave them a 5-2 win. On Sunday, the Grizzlies hosted the Penticton Lakers in an afternoon game. For the Lakers it was their last game before the team makes the move to 100 Mile House for next season. The Grizzlies feasted on a Lakers team that only had 13 skaters, winning 6-2. Christensen scored twice, and Reay, Donaldson, Riley Creighton and Chevy Hantula all had goals in the win.
Austin Donaldson, who received the Fan Favourite award before the game, fires home a one-timer on a feed from Darnel St. Pierre to score the Revelstoke Grizzlies fourth goal in Sunday’s 6-2 win over the Penticton Lakers. Alex Cooper/Revelstoke Times Review
While the games were meaningless from the perspective of the standings, Kraus said he was happy with the team’s play. “It’s a good way to end the year, go in with a little bit of momentum,” he said. For the playoffs, he said the key to winning will be strong defensive play and limiting mistakes. “I don’t think we’re going to change anything, it’s more just getting the
mental focus you need in the playoffs because every mistake can end your season,” he said. Sicamous brings a balanced attack to the series, with seven 10-goal scorers, led by Brendan Devries and Cameron Berry, who scored 28 and 24 goals respectively. “If we play the style of hockey we should be playing and play smart, simple good defense, I think
we can shut down their top end guys,” said Kraus. The series against the Eagles starts in Sicamous this Friday, Feb. 22. Game two is on on Saturday, with games three and four in Revelstoke on Monday and Tuesday. A bus will take fans to the games in Sicamous for $25, including tickets.

A HOME FOR THE HUNTS
It is with deep sadness that we announce the death of our Mother, Grandmother and sister, Harriet Chase, the afternoon of February 6, 2013, in Revelstoke, B.C., with family beside her.
SATURDAY, MARCH 9TH 8:00PM CATHOLIC HALL
In the home of Harriet’s birth, Pantyffynnon, Carmarthenshire, in South Wales, her life was filled with love and caring, family and life-long friends, music and chapel. From childhood Harriet would sing; it was expected of her to come home with prizes from the local Eisteddfod, which she did. While serving in the Auxiliary Territorial Service Harriet met Canadian Thomas Grant Chase and a few years after their marriage made the voyage to Canada with toddler Miriam and baby Grant. Tom’s sisters met them, Easter-time, in Vernon, B.C., which would become their family home for over fifty years.
