Making way for spring at annual Castegar EXPO event marvin beatty West Kootenay Advertiser

The annual Kootenay Home and Lifestyle Expo was another sell-out at Selkirk College gymnasium March 2 - 3, in Castlegar, B.C. In it’s fifth year at the college, the expo showcased many products and services from more than 60 vendors throughout the West Kootenay region. Commercial and home-based business owners and employees answered questions, provided quotes, gave haircuts, set up appointments and gave away free samples and draw prizes from almost every sector of the business community: financial services, construction, home decor, outdoor living, health, beauty and wellness, food services and more. Just in time for

Smaller post-secondary campuses get more bandwidth nelson staff West Kootenay Advertiser

Students, faculty and staff at six regional public post-secondary campus locations in B.C. will enjoy faster, higher quality, more reliable online services thanks to network connectivity upgrades to increase bandwidth to their institutions. The upgrades will increase bandwidth from 2.5 to 10 times current levels and will benefit campuses in Golden and Invermere operated by College of the Rockies, and campuses in Hudson’s Hope, Tumbler Ridge,

Chetwynd and Dease Lake operated by Northern Lights College. “Working under the BC Jobs Plan with our partners in education, we’re taking action to ensure our public post-secondary institutions have the infrastructure, latest technology and equipment they need to prepare learners for jobs in the knowledge economy,” says Minister of Advanced Education, Innovation and Technology John Yap. This is the latest round of network connectivity upgrades that are benefitting public

post-secondary institutions throughout the province. Between April 2011 and October 2012 network connectivity upgrades were also completed for regional campuses including Selkirk College in Nelson, Cranbrook, Kelowna and Grand Forks. “With these network upgrades, smaller, regional campus locations gain the bandwidth they need to expand and enrich educational opportunities for their students and communities,” says Yap. The increased bandwidth supports educational tech-

nologies required by today’s learners, allowing institutions to expand their programming and instruction options to better serve the needs of students. For example, some campuses will gain a greater capacity to provide remote learning opportunities, allowing students to stay closer to home while they get the education, skills and training they need to succeed. The infrastructure work required to increase bandwidth at these six campus locations is expected to be completed over the next few months.

well. In both those camps, the few chosen players from Gorman’s Trail Tier 2 bantam team will have the opportunity to showcase themselves for future interest from any junior teams as associated players for next season. “They’re fast paced. They’re a little hard to adjust to but once you adjust to it, it’s pretty fun,” explains Gorman of the Smoke Eaters’ practice. “It’s nothing more advanced than what we do in normal practices but it’s just a lot faster.” Gorman says the players at the practice are a good four years older than him. “I’m an offensive defenceman. I’m kind of a two-way player. I can

play the penalty kill and the power play. I get a lot of points as a d-man and I’m a fast skater,” he says of his strengths. Due to his age, Gorman would only be able to play a maximum of five games for either Junior A or Junior B teams but the experience is aiding in his development. As for his plans for next hockey season, Gorman says he wants to make the Kootenay Ice major midget hockey team in Trail and long-term, he is looking to satisfy both athletics and academics. “I want to play college hockey and get a scholarship in the United States,” Gorman says.

Grand Forks native Evan Gorman had a chance to practice with the Trail Smoke Eaters recently. Laura Greaves

Community Grant awarded to create Charles Bailey Theatre business plan Submitted Trail & District Arts Council

The Trail and District Arts Council in partnership with Trail’s VISAC gallery is pleased to announce the receipt of an Enterprising Non Profits (ENP) grant. The $6500 ENP grant with cumulative matching funds from the City of Trail, The Regional District of Kootenay Boundary and the Trail and District Arts Council will be used to create a business plan for expansion of the management and operation of the Charles Bailey Theatre. Enterprising Non Profits (like the Trail Arts Council) approaches projects by measuring not only financial results but also the social and cultural benefits; the aim is not only to make money but also to meet the arts and programming needs of the community. Hired consultant Nadine Tremblay explains, “I have been managing the front of house operations of the Charles Bailey Theatre for three years now. I could not help but notice that similar sized communities use their theatre spaces way more than Trail and so we set out to find out if we too can be a flourishing arts community beginning with a theatre business plan.” With a strong focus on market research and a comprehensive marketing plan that will result from research findings, the Greater Trail community can expect to be consulted by survey (online and in person) and invited to attend forums and information gathering sessions in the spring. Tremblay, who has just recently returned from Melbourne, Austra-

lia observes, “there is art in abundance there. Population aside, I ask myself why we can’t have more arts going on in this region. I want

to be able to go to a hockey game one night and be inspired by songs and stories the next. “Our project committee can’t do

it alone so I’m asking all community members to prepare to put your dreaming hats on and help make Trail rich in culture and arts.”

The ultimate goal of this project is to come up with a plan to create more performing arts opportunities for the region and generate

The Idle No More movement, so much in the news in past months, has not wound up even though its profile may have lowered of late. Such is the assurance from Jessica MacLeod and Shemmaho Goodenough.

“We’ve gathered information and also bring our own experience to talk about Idle No More, which is basically an educational movement.” Shemmaho Goodenough

MacLeod – daughter of a Northern Alberta Cree Chief and Goodenough – a concerned citizen and designated elder in the Castlegar area, teamed up to present an event labelled an Idle No More TeachIn on March 2 at Robson Community

School. The effort was designed as a vehicle for enhancing public awareness of aboriginal issues. “A teach-in,” explained Goodenough as attendees arrived, “is an educational opportunity. “We’ve gathered information and also bring our own experience to talk about Idle No More, which is basically an educational movement.” Environmental issues are of great concern to the teachin hosts, specifically fresh water issues. Goodenough brought up the topic of decreasing federal safeguards over water resources. “We feel like its really dangerous for all Canadians,” she said. Other points related to mining, pipeline construction, and natural gas “fracking.” MacLeod pointed to federal legislation which she feels is being hurried along

with too little public input being sought. She supplied a sample item from the table full of printed handouts to back up her claim that growing environmental trouble likely lies ahead. “Bill C45 which has passed, and is law, allows companies and pipelines to come without having to be environmental-

ly accountable,” said MacLeod. “They want to exploit the whole North all the way across,” added Goodenough. The dozen or so who had accepted the invitation to the teach-in formed a circle with the hosts and heard presentations from each of them, starting with MacLeod who shared her personal history.

Born in an area about four hours north of Edmonton, MacLeod remembers a peaceful, enjoyable early childhood in spite of the lack of many modern amenities. Major upheaval occurred following her parents’ separation and the arrival on the scene of the second father-figure in her life, a man

from Grand Forks. Moving to the Boundary Country was a big adjustment and caused much difficulty in her life. Introduction to smoking and drinking at an early age added to her troubles. “I was questioning everything,” she recalled. MacLeod said that even though at one point she had denied her culture, the annual high points of her life were the summer trips back to Alberta. She has made it to where she is today, enjoying “a cultural resurgence… I am a proud Cree woman,” she concluded. The theme of Goodenough’s presentation was “Colonization of the Mind.” Also having provided a brief bit of personal background, Goodenough came equipped with an assortment of relevant reading material from the Selkirk College Library, a source

of information she recommended to the group. Ending Denial: Understanding Aboriginal Issues, by Wayne Warry was the first. She spoke on various points made in the selected volumes as they were passed around the circle. Goodenough touched upon the history of European colonization, too much of which was based on the idea of aboriginal inferiority. She promotes the concept of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginals working on their common problems as partners, and declared, “People need to talk, establish a dialogue in order to understand each other.” The other books focused on were: With Good Intentions, by Celia Haig-Brown and David A. Nock, and Peace, Power and Righteousness, by Taiaiake Alfred.

Through the Walls of Time

From Ainsworth to Zincton, there’s history in their names GREG NESTEROFF West Kootenay Advertiser

First in a series How do places get their names? In many different ways. In West Kootenay Boundary, names were bestowed when a townsite was staked, a railway was pushed through, steamboat service commenced, or a post office opened. Often the names were after early settlers, CPR officials, mines, or geographic features. Some were named after other places, some to inspire settlement, and others to honour prominent people who may never have actually visited. Of course, many of these same places already had First Nations names. Not many are still in use, but the ones that are — Kootenay, Kokanee, Slocan, Nakusp, and possibly Kaslo — are among the most intriguing on the local map. One subset

This Saturday, from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. at Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Grand Forks (7252 - 7th St), the Boundary Organic Producers Association, in conjunction with the the Grand Forks and Boundary Regional Agricultural Society, will host the annual seed exchange. Please label and date all seeds to be shared and exchanged.

of names unique to this area are those given by the Doukhobors, although only two — Ootischenia and Krestova — remain in widespread use. Many place names have multiple, contradictory theories explaining their origins.

“People cannot resist making up explanations for the origins of words and phrases.” Hugh Rawson In Devious Derivations, Hugh Rawson writes: “People cannot resist making up explanations for the origins of words and phrases. Their theories are at once a reflection of the general reluctance to accept uncertainty and a tribute to their powers of creativity.” The same is cer-

tainly true for place names, or toponyms, as they are otherwise known. Some names have no wholly satisfying explanation — Howser and Wynndel chief among them. However, that doesn’t mean we will never find the answers. For more than a century the true origin of Castlegar eluded local historians

until the mystery was finally solved in 2002: it’s the Irish ancestral home of the townsite’s founder. Many places had multiple names, often the result of competing railways. Sometimes the same place had one name for the post office and another for the railway siding. The settlements along Highway 31A between New Denver and Kaslo — known

as the Valley of the Ghosts — were especially prone to this: Retallack, Nashton, and Sproule’s each had five other names. Each week this column will examine one or more local place names, providing its first known use, previous names, post office history, and some commentary on its derivation. Not all will be included, but neither will

Locals show up with valuables at weekend antique show SHERI REGNIER WEst Kootenay Advertiser

A cornucopia of collectibles was dusted and polished for appraisal at the “Antiques from the Attic-What’s it Worth?” show at the Warfield Hall on the weekend. Over 40 avid antiquers not only received an estimated value for their family heirlooms, but in some cases, a funny anecdote and ad-

vice on use, by Peter Blundell, an advisory expert for the CBC Antiques Roadshow.

“Use it, enjoy it and have fun with it. And you can impress your neighbours by having one heck of a tea party with it.” -Peter Blundell Blundell was on hand to research

the origin of treasures ranging from: a Georgian silver teapot from 1825; an 1880’s rose-hued pottery wash set (with only one tiny chip); a child’s chair from 1890s Austria; and, a remarkable find to the appraiser himself, a Gasparo violin dating back to 16th century Europe. Blundell couldn’t even speculate on the value of the rare Italian instrument,

with only 80 known to exist today. Instead, he passed along contact information to the flabbergasted violin heir, so the research could continue with the help of musical instrument experts, located in Vancouver. The owner, who wished to remain anonymous, said a grandfather passed down the instrument. “Not much else is known about how he

got it yet, other than a little history from a great-uncle.” Blundell’s appraisal of the rare find drew a reaction of a different sort from a curious spectator. “Oh my gosh, that’s the instrument the whole neighbourhood had to listen to being practiced, when I was a kid,” the voice quipped. More abundant at the show, but less valuable, were the

numerous silver pieces and tea sets that glittered under the appraiser’s light. “Use it, enjoy it and have fun with it,” he said. “And you can impress your neighbours by having one heck of a tea party with it,” advised Blundell. “Seeing Peter encouraging everyone to use their silver tea sets and make the most of them was fun,” said Sarah Ben-

son, event organizer from the Trail Historical Society. ‘I can just imagine how many “grown up” tea parties will be taking place soon.” Benson said that if there is enough interest shown in this kind of thing, the historical society would again be willing to partner with the Rossland Historical Museum to make the show a recurring event in the community.

Beans and Rice dinner for a benevolent cause ROSSLAND STAFF West Kootenay Advertiser

Selkirk nursing students are putting on the Beans and Rice Dinner to fundraise for a trip to Guatemala. The students are asking Rossland to join them for a traditional Guatemalan dinner next Friday at Rossland Secondary School. The dinner will support third year Selkirk College nursing students who will participate in a practice experience to Guatemala this spring. Ten nursing students will travel to Guatemala in April for three weeks as part of the international experience. The students will share their knowledge and learn from four different grassroots organizations whose work within their communities promoting health as a basic human right, has brought about significant positive social change. Previous Selkirk groups visited urban free-trade zones,

highland villages where community health and well-being is being affected by Canadian mining operations, and the remote north-eastern jungle region of the country where government health services are almost non-existent.

Ten nursing students will travel to Guatemala in April for three weeks as part of an international practice experiment. For the nursing students, the practical experience brings to life the incredible resilience, capacity, and creativity of the Guatemalan people. This helps to actively confront the formidable challenges to health that they face, and in doing so, poignantly illustrates the benefits of collaboration around health between the northern and the southern countries. The dinner is the

final major fundraising effort to send the group south in the spring. Abundant community support has been the foundation in making this international practice experience possible, and we are grateful to our local citizens, businesses and organizations. Cost is $10 at the door. Children are welcome. For information please call 354-4791. Briefs The school district may have recently passed a bylaw that closes MacLean Elementary School and forces Rossland families to send their Grade 10-12 students to Trail, but that doesn’t mean the battle is over. On Thursday, the Neighbourhood of Learning committee held a public forum on the recent ruling by the board. There is a strong push for K-12 in Rossland and where the issue could go from here. Aerin Guy, NOL’s co-ordinator, made it clear there are many avenues to pursue.

Prolonging landfill’s useful life Trail briefs A new pilot program could reduce the amount of waste going into the Trail dump and give something back to the environment. The food scraps program in Grand Forks has reportedly kept up to 70 per cent of waste out of its landfill over the last year. Now the project could be implemented across the regional district, including Greater Trail’s McElvey Creek Landfill. The project was popular in Grand Forks and composted meat, fruit and vegetables into soil. When the East End Services (EES) committee—that includes the communities of Trail, Warfield, Montrose, Rossland, Fruitvale and Areas A and B— looked at the amount of waste saved from

the landfill the idea was adopted for consideration. “If we can reduce the waste going to the dump by 50 per cent … you have now extended the life of the dump by 60 years,” said Robert Cacchioni, Trail’s representative on the EES committee. And with the current dump expected to be full in 30 years— and a new dump cost in the range of $300 million—the new project could be worth tens of millions of dollars to extend the life of the landfill, said Cacchioni. Sending pigeons packing Care Pest and Wildlife Control Ltd. Of Burnaby, has been hired by the city to carry out the pigeon control program for $25,000. “The city has been dealing with an ongoing problem of pi-

geons for some time,” explained David Perehudoff, chief administrative officer and financial administrator for the city. The funding was included as a high priority in the 2013 capital budget, he said. Warren Proulx, engineering technician for the City of Trail and administrator of the Care Pest contract, explained in a memo that the steel bird spikes that were installed along the entire length of the bridge arches by the Ministry of Transport, only solved the unsanitary feces problem on the bridge sidewalk. “The pigeon population continues to grow,” he said. Care Pest and Wildlife Control Ltd., submitted a proposal to the city and recommends trapping the birds, by enticing them with corn feed.

Lifestyles The Bench sets out on a promotional trip to Calgary, Alberta Submitted by Lorne Eckersley, publisher of the Creston Valley Advance, a Black Press publication We always love our visits to Naramata, where more than two dozen wineries now keep us busy for days. It seems like we can never keep up. We visit two new wineries and another three open before our return.

“We’re hosting the B.C. Amateur this year, and that’s going to be a big deal.” Brian Miller

It felt like another happy visit to the area north of Penticton on a visit to Calgary last week, where

we attended a couple of fundraising events as guests of the Naramata Bench Wineries Association, the invitation coming from the association’s tireless coordinator, Tina Baird. I got a particular kick while standing in line as we waited for a VIP tasting. Sal D’Angelo, one of my favourite winemakers and owner of one of my favourite wineries, wandered by and stopped to chat. He’s excited about the pending release of two port-like dessert wines, both made with ice wine and fortified with brandy made from his own grapes. La Dolce Rosso (red) and La Dolce Bianco (white) are ready for bottling and will be available in small quantities this spring. We barrel tasted

La Dolce Vita these port-like wines last fall and they were wonderful. We took our seats along with about 50 other guests (the events, fundraisers for Alberta Theatre Projects, were hosted by Willow Park Wines and Spirits), carrying glasses of bubbly rose-coloured wines. Another nine glasses were ready at each place setting. As we sat I noticed another Naramata friend, Judy Kingston, owner of the amazing gem, Serendipity Winery. Two of her wines were featured in front of us. Surprises are always the best part of any tasting and they

started early in this one. The bubbly we were handed as we entered the mezzanine turned out to be from Elephant Island Orchard Wines, whose makers prove each year that great wines can be made without grapes. It turns out the bubbly, called Unconventional Wisdom, was made from apples, with a dosage of cassis added to the fermented juice later. I doubt there were many in the room who would have guessed this was a fruit wine. Elephant Island was also the maker of the last sample we tasted, a dessert wine they call Stellaport, made from

Stella cherries. It was very nice, and paired spectacularly with a cheese from Nova Scotia selected by Calgary restaurant and cheese shop owner Janice Beaton. Dragon’s Breath is a luscious white, creamy cheese, blue in every way except in colour. Apparently it isn’t exposed to air, which keeps the mold from colouring. Kingston introduced her two offerings, 2009 Merlot and 2009 Cabernet Franc, the latter of which was the best wine of the bunch, in my opinion. Therapy Vineyards brought along a rare treat, barrel samples of 2012 Artist

Series Riesling and 2012 Pinot Noir. It’s nice when wineries trust their audience to share barrel samples, because they are definitely not the finished product. But they do give an indication of how the wines will eventually turn out. The Riesling paired very well with a delicious ceviche. One of Naramata’s best kept secrets is Van Westen Vineyards, which is quietly making a name for itself with exceptionally good and very highly rated wines. Owner Robert Van Westen was on hand to talk about his 2011 Viognier, a creamy and aromatic gem and 2009 Vulture, a very nice Cab Franc. Hillside Estate Winery winemaker Kathy Malone also had a turn at the microphone, talking

about her 2012 Rose and a 2009 Reserve Merlot, a peppery and rich effort that is an indication, she said, of what an exceptional year 2009 was for red wines in Narmata. As we made our way through each wine, half of them paired with food, it felt very satisfying to see these Naramata wineries demonstrating to a Calgary audience just how good a terroir the Naramata Bench is, and the quality of winemaking that has put the region on the map in such a big way. Next week: From the VIP tasting we made our way downstairs, where the large reception room featured more wineries, more food, a silent auction and live music.

Provincial

Cabinet Minister quits over ethnic memo tom fletcher Black Press

VICTORIA – Richmond-Steveston MLA John Yap has resigned from the B.C. cabinet pending the outcome of an investigation into government conduct on outreach to ethnic communities. Premier Christy Clark told the legislature Monday that Yap is stepping aside from his duties as advanced

education and multiculturalism minister until an internal investigation is complete. B.C. Liberal MLAs held an extended caucus meeting Monday to deal with the fallout from a leaked memo describing use government resources to boost the party’s popularity with ethnic communities. Cabinet ministers held a hastily arranged

meeting in Vancouver Sunday, and emerged united in support of Clark. One disputed point is a plan to apologize in the legislature for the “head tax” on Chinese immigrants, imposed by Ottawa from 1885 to 1935. Such apologies are proposed in the strategy document as “quick wins” before the May 14 provincial election. Vancouver-Fra-

are being encouraged to think about what it means to eat well and be healthy. Healthy eating means choosing the right types and amount of food for your age, sex, activity level and health. Good nutrition

can lower your risk of nutrition-related disease. It can help you to maintain a healthy body weight, and develop stronger muscles and bones. Eating well will help you achieve overall health and vitality.

serview MLA Kash Heed objected to the move on the weekend, telling CKNW radio that such an apology would be “hollow.” In a terse statement issued Friday afternoon, Clark announced that she has accepted the resignation of her long-time assistant, Kim Haakstad, who distributed the ethnic voter plan to party and government staff via their

personal e-mail addresses. Haakstad, Clark’s deputy chief of staff, and “outreach” staff from the premier’s office are subject to an internal investigation ordered by Clark Thursday. John Dyble, head of the public service, is to examine whether government communications resources were redirected to help deliver ethnic votes to the B.C.

Liberal Party. A January 2012 draft strategy memo leaked to the NDP opposition discusses ways to improve the governing party’s popularity with immigrant communities, including recruiting new members and spokespeople to call and write to ethnic media outlets. Clark issued an apology for the document, read in the legislature Thurs-

day by Deputy Premier Rich Coleman. “The document did not recognize there are lines that cannot be crossed in conducting this outreach [to ethnic communities] and it is unacceptable,” the statement says. “The language in this draft document and some of the recommendations are absolutely inappropriate.”

The perfect retirement lifestyle Seniors want it all: a comfortable home, independence to follow their own schedule and maintain their own interests, safety and security, delicious food and the company of others. And who can blame them? Not long ago, seniors had limited housing options, and few met all of their needs. But this fall Silver Kettle Village opened its doors and a new style of seniors housing opened in Grand Forks, providing today’s seniors the opportunity to experience retirement living at its best. Silver Kettle Village is a well-crafted seniors’ community boasting 48 beautiful suites ranging from studios to one and two bedroom layouts.

Beyond the suite is access to a variety of common areas which include a games room, spa room, library, dining room, coffee room, crafts room, hair salon and lounges. All areas are easily accessible, full of interesting people, engaging activities and share a wonderful sense of community. Hospitality services at Silver Kettle Village are included in

the affordable monthly rent and include weekly housekeeping, a wide selection of recreational and social activities, 24 hour emergency monitoring, shuttle bus service, and hot, delicious meals prepared by on-site chefs.

Silver Kettle Village is open daily; and you can call (250) 442-0667 for more information or to book a tour.

Community Living and General Services deal includes pay increase, labour market adjustment

VA N C O U V E R , March 4, 2013 /CNW/ - After a marathon bargaining session of 13 days, the multiunion Community Social Services Bargaining Association (CSSBA) has reached a tentative collective agreement with the employer. The two-year proposed agreement is fair and reasonable and achieves our members’ key priorities, including an across the board wage increase while protecting health and welfare benefits. Highlights include: A wage increase for all employees: 1.5 per cent on April 1, 2013; 1.5 per cent on January 1, 2014; An extra 1 per cent wage increase for all step 1 employees on April 1, 2013; A labour market

adjustment review for all General Service and Community Living classifications. Further details will be announced shortly. The proposed agreement covers community-based social services workers in community living and general services only. Aboriginal Service workers remain at the bargaining table. “Despite the government’s restrictive mandate, your bargaining committee fought to get the best agreement possible for the caring professionals that support vulnerable BC families in our sector,” says CSSBA Chair Patsy Harmston. The bargaining committee is recommending that members vote in favour of the proposed settlement. “We continue to

believe that the government must provide proper funding for the programs that support vulnerable families in BC, and the workers that provide them,” says Harmston. “Our three months of rotating strike action sent a clear message to government. We want to express our gratitude and thanks to all the workers who took to the picket lines in support of our sector and our bargaining objectives.” The multi-union bargaining association will now seek ratification by members in the month ahead. Members will receive detailed information about the tentative agreement and the ratification vote process in due course. The full ratification bulletin will also be

posted to your union’s website and at www. cssfairdeal.ca. Information about the ratification process will be posted and sent to members at the same time. Workers in community social services were without a contract since March 31, 2012 and are the lowest paid in the broad public service. Community living workers are represented by BCGEU, CUPE, HEU, HSA and six other unions, which together make up the Community Social Services Bargaining Association. There are 15,000 unionized community social services workers, and two-thirds of them work in community living. SOURCE: B.C. Government and Service Employees’ Union.

Horoscope Michael O’Connor

for the

Week

March 8, 2013

Tip of the Week: In astrology planets are not simply perceived as objects out there in space. When symbolically drawn out on a Mandala Map, which is what an astrology chart is, planets can be seen and measured to be archetypes. In turn, archetypes are even more profound and multi-layered than symbols. They are what the symbols point to. Taken as a whole, archetypes constitute the blueprints of existence. They can basically be understood as shapes. A circle, for example, is symbolic of cycles and of spheres and refers to themes of infinity and spirituality, without beginning or end. By examining and defining shapes, the language moves beyond mere objects and enters into psychological and even spiritual principles. This is difficult to comprehend from the stand point of purely linear, logical thinking, which requires start and end points. Such thinking can best be illustrated as a two dimensional line, as in the so-called arrow of time. Neptune is the planet that archetypally refers to mysticism, which refers to states of consciousness and to realities than transcend linear perceptions and conclusions. If a person has Neptune prominently placed in their Natal Chart, they will possess a very imaginative, sensitive, inspired, dreamy and idealistic nature, regardless of what their Sun Sign is. At worst, a prominent Neptune will manifest as unrealistic, flaky, escapist and addicted. The gift of Astrology is that it reveals the prominence of the various archetypes in our character. With awareness we can then consciously integrate, accept and align ourselves with the particulars of our nature. PS The New Moon on March 11th at 12:51 pm PST hosts 7 planets in Pisces.

ARIES (MAR 21 – APR 20)

You will feel the early breeze of spring this week. If it is not the weather this feeling will at least shine through in your actions. As the week progresses you will feel increasing determined. Some of your actions may well be deemed revolutionary. Yet, this will not be entirely the case. In some respects you will be happy to escape any responsibility.

TAURUS (APR 20 – MAY 21)

This week’s New Moon will serve to ignite assertions that have been hidden up to now. Even you may be caught by surprise. These may be directed inward to tackle lingering fears causing hesitation. Working behind the scenes more directly is likely as well. Meanwhile, sharing quality time with friends will bring balance to the overall dynamic.

GEMINI (MAY 21 – JUN 21)

You are in the mood to take some new leads. You are happy to take it slow but you also want measurable progress. Extra efforts to break free from winter’s inertia may be required. Thinking, wondering and dreaming too much may be an issue of late. As long as you take note and follow through with small steps your confidence levels and momentum will grow.

CANCER (JUN 21 – JUL 22)

LIBRA (SEP 22 – OCT 22)

This delicate cycle that we have entered is directly linked to your health. While this confusing energy pattern will dissolve over the next few weeks for most people, for you it will continue for some time. The key is for you to be extra aware, determined and pro-active towards perpetuating and ideally increasing your overall health levels.

SCORPIO (OCT 22 – NOV 21)

Like a phoenix rising out of the ashes, your strength is on the rise. The past 2-3 years have been extra challenging. But now while many are feeling the weight of current cycles, it stands to feel like flight for you. After coming through a dark night, the future feels brighter than it has for some time. A key to making the most of this time is to exercise a beginners mind and explore new territory.

SAGITTARIUS (NOV 21 – DEC 21)

A steady stream of energy is serving to dissolve old patterns, attitudes and lifestyle rhythms. This cycle of influence will continue for quite some time. A slow yet sure approach to make small, consistent adjustments on a regular basis will help a lot. Clean closets, clear clutter, and break free of indulgences that you simply can no longer afford.

A mystical mood is lingering. At worst, you may feel lost, confused and depressed. At best, any melancholy could produce rare and profound insights. Is it possible to experience a heightened state of sensitivity without it producing conflicting waves of emotion? The answer is yes, if you are able to bear witness to your experiences verses getting all wrapped-up in them.

CAPRICORN (DEC 21 – JAN 19)

LEO (JUL 22 – AUG 23)

AQUARIUS (JAN 19 – FEB 19)

VIRGO (AUG 23 – SEP 22)

PISCES (FEB 19 – MAR 20)

A powerful purification process occurring at subconscious levels is underway. At worst this is leaving you feeling anxious, insecure and confused. The more able you are to consciously tune-in, allow the process and even cooperate with it, the better. This includes taking extra care and trusting the process. On the flip side this is a summons of your warrior spirit to have courage.

Your vision may seem obscured. You are unable to see yourself or anyone else as clearly as usual. Although this too will pass, it will linger for a while yet. Take solace in realizing that you are not alone. Discussions about it with others having similar experiences may help, as long as you are mutually supportive. Avoid intrigue and over imagination, yet acknowledge your feelings.

Reflections of what has been and will be are playing on your imagination. Dealing with the past however, may be keeping you at least as busy as working towards the future. Wishing you could feel more confident and focused is likely. This is where looking to the leadership and accomplishments of others can prove helpful, especially now.

A steady climb to greater heights continues. Yet it is not material rewards that you seek most. Your dream is to feel spiritually fulfilled. Self-actualization and loving what you do and feeling purposeful and the conviction that your life has deeper meaning…, are examples. Getting rewarded for it in the material sense as well completes the picture.

The New Moon in Pisces is an extra special one for us all since there will be 7 planets all hovering close to the Sun. This will activate new dreams, intentions and initiatives for you. This may require that you clear the old to make way for the new. Habitual beliefs, perceptions and attitudes may be at least as important as clearing stuff. Spring clean, holistically.

Connecting with the Community

Lights Out Grand Forks! We can all make a difference on Saturday March 23, 2013 from 8:30 to 9:30 PM wherever you live by simply turning off all power source switches – residential and commercial. The Earth Hour Challenge - Uniting the World to Protect the Planet is a global movement to unite in reducing our power consumption for one brief hour in our lives. The first Earth Hour took place in Sydney, Australia, on 31 March 2007 and it was an idea developed by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) where 2.2 million Sydney area homes and businesses switched off their lights for one hour. Plan a night to remember; a candle lit dinner, star gazing! Register your email address at www.earthhour.org and watch the countdown. The Grand Forks Environmental Committee is a select committee of Council established under Section 142 of the Community Charter. It was formed to examine pertinent and pressing environmental issues within the municipality and to advise Council on these matters. The prime focus is air quality, water sustainability and carbon neutrality where these sub-committees bring forward recommendations for Council’s consideration. This year, the committee has recommended to the City to engage in a community education program on Water Conservation to support the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary’s Kettle River Watershed Management Plan

http://kettleriver.ca and reduce the amount of water we consume annually. Watch for these upcoming 2013 environmental community events as the Environment Committee and lead community organizations including the BC Lung Association, Grand Forks Community Trails Society, Grand Forks Rotary, and Granby Wilderness Society work together to bring awareness and the impact we can make in preserving the planet. • Earth Hour Challenge Saturday March 23, 2013 8:30 PM www.earthhour.org • Earth Day International date April 22 www.earthday.ca • BC Drinking Water Week May 20-26 www.drinkingwaterweek.org • Bike To Work BC Week May 27-June 2 www.biketowork.ca • Environment Canada’s National Commuter Challenge June 2-8 http://commuterchallenge.ca/blog • Clean Air Day & Solar Kit Races June 5 http://www.bcairquality.ca/101/clean-air-day-bc.html • BC Rivers Day September 29 http://commons.bcit.ca/riversday The Grand Forks Environment Committee holds bi-monthly open meetings at the RDKB office in Grand Forks. The next meeting will be held on March 21, 2013 at 11:00 AM. Everyone welcome! Contact Councillor Cher Wyers, Committee Chair at cwyers@grandforks.ca for further information.

Open House Invitation The City of Grand Forks is inviting the public to an open house at city hall on March 12 between 3 and 6 p.m. People can view projects for the year, which include minor improvements to the downtown core. The city is looking for input from the public around downtown improvements. At this point, it has identified the low hanging fruit, sidewalk repairs, painting and planters etc. The intention of the open house is to provide a bit of a visual of the planned improvements, as well as receive input from downtown businesses on what they feel the priorities for improving the downtown core are in the future and most importantly, to make sure the city and downtown businesses are on the same page. The city would like to hear from you and welcomes your feedback. For more information, contact Sarah Winton, deputy corporate secretary for the City of Grand Forks.

Downed Power Lines Power lines can be dislodged for a number of reasons such as age, weather conditions or human interference. You cannot tell if a power line is still energized by just looking at it. If you see a downed power line:

• Stay at least 10 meters away • Contact 9-1-1 or The City of Grand Forks Electrical Department’s 24 hour emergency number 250-442-2033 immediately. • If you can, secure the site until emergency personnel arrive

The protective coating on most overhead lines is not an insulator. Never try to move downed power lines. Once a power line contacts the ground or an object such as a tree or vehicle they can become energized. The electricity then travels through the ground over a wide area. The maximum voltage is at the contact point and slowly dissipates the further out it gets, similar to the ripple effect caused when a rock is dropped in a pond of water. If your motor vehicle has been involved in an accident with an electrical pole or transformer (green box), treat the vehicle and anything it is in contact with it as energized. If an energized line has come down on the vehicle, stay inside if it is safe to do so. If the vehicle is on fire and you must jump free, do so with both feet together. Shuffle away from the vehicle - keeping both feet close together minimizes the voltage potential between the feet. Never contact the ground and your vehicle at the same time. If someone receives an electrical shock:

• Do not touch the person if she or he is still in contact with the source of electricity. The electricity will travel from their body into yours! • Ask someone to call 9-1-1 while you stay with the victim. There are many other types of overhead wires, including telephone and television. Always assume that a downed line is energized and call for emergency personnel. If you come across a scene that is already cordoned off, do not cross past the yellow barrier tape. It’s there for your safety, and will be removed once the scene is secured.
