GFSS looks to add ebooks

SASCHA PORTEOUS Gazette Reporter

Grand Forks Secondary School (GFSS) Vice-Principal Shawn Lockhart thinks digital books will address the concerns surrounding the

library at the high school. The school replaced the library with a gym to meet the growing health concerns that face kids these days, Lockhart said. “The library we had was a very large space and it contained a lot of reading material, and sadly only about 20 per cent of those books were used,” he said at the school board meeting last Tuesday. After the creation of the gym, there was a newly renovated space, the Distance Learning Centre (DLC), and Karen de Wynter, the new librarian at the time, wanted to bring an e-shelf of books into the space. “I then talked to the administration and Sean Anderson, the past librarian, to discuss this adventure and they thought it would be a good idea,” said de Wynter in an email to the Gazette. “The students in our school rarely go anywhere without their cell phones/iPod etc so I am hoping once this is up and running they can easily access the novels that have been purchased on their devices,” she said. The school has purchased 91 online books (ebooks), which de Wynter said is just “baby steps,” but she is looking at potential resources that can be accessed by teachers to use in their classrooms and adding to the collection of novels down the road. Shawn Lockhart There is room to study in the DLC, which is where a portion of the books from the library have been transferred to, the multipurpose room, the seniors study lounge or the counseling area, said Lockhart. However, Norm Sabourin, president of the Boundary District Teachers’ Association, told the Gazette that ebooks cannot replace the library. “The library is more than just books, it’s a place for the students to study and learn,” he said. “The old library was a great safe space for the kids.” Lockhart said that the library did not represent an ideal study model. “Some kids went in there and studied, but it was more of a social hangout,” he said. The school district is optimistic that the ebooks will be a cost saving measure. The purchase of 91 ebooks was approximately $1,000 which is comparable to the cost of hard copy books, said de Wynter. “What’s cheaper is that they are not going to get lost, damaged or wear out. It’s the longevity of potential savings, your copy will be just as fresh and robust and graffiti free as the person who read it the first time,” said Superintendent of Schools Michael Strukoff. The ebooks can be read and viewed on a laptop, tablet reader, computer or a phone and because the school offers a wireless Internet connection, students will be able to access the books on their own device. Sabourin’s concern is for children who come from families who cannot afford phones or tablets. Strukoff said it’s something that the district has to address. “We need to ensure there is adequate devices for students that forgot them at home or for people that don’t have them or cannot afford them,” he said. Currently the school has 24 iPads, which can be used by the students, as well as three computer labs. “Right now it is a non-issue and we will make sure that no students get left behind,” said Strukoff. Ebooks will not be replacing hard copy books as not all students have devices but they are there to supplement and enhance our library experience, said de Wynter. When the system is all up and running, which will begin after spring break, students will be able to sign out a book and in two weeks it will be automatically returned if the student hasn’t returned it earlier. “We have more access to books than we have ever had, ever, and we have increased our space for physical daily activity, so I feel pretty good about where we are,” said Lockhart.

Local businesses warned of counterfeit bills circulating

KARL YU

Gazette Editor

Businesses in Grand Forks are being advised to be on the lookout for counterfeit $100 bills with the serial number EJK4145615. According to Grand Forks RCMP’s Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison, a pair of businesses (Subway and the gas station at Extra Foods) reported the counterfeit currency on March 12. The bills were recreations of the Canadian Journey series paper bank notes, as opposed to the new Frontier series polymer bank notes that were introduced in 2011. “Basically the business owners from two businesses in town brought them in to us,” Harrison said. “We don’t know how many more are out in the community but we strongly suspect if there are two, there’s likely more.” There are two individuals that have been identified as being involved in passing the bills and the investigation is continuing. Harrison said that if there are more counterfeit bills, they will likely have the identical serial numbers and the ones handed over to them yesterday were poor imitations, as the hologram on one bill had the No. 10 as opposed to 100. “Normally with counterfeit bills, there are several detection methods. Businesses that have the ultraviolet light can detect it for certain markings. The other thing that is very difficult for criminals to reproduce are planchettes in the paper, which are little green discs that are actually put in the paper when the paper is manufactured, so they can’t be drawn on and if they are, it’s very apparent,” explained Harrison, adding that the planchettes can be seen by holding a bill up to a light.

Harrison also said the ink on modern currency bills never dries, so if people were to take a legal paper bill – as opposed to one recreated on a printer – and rub it on paper, some of the colour would come off. “That’s indicative that it’s a real bill,” Harrison said. “If in doubt, you’re not obligated to accept it. We would prefer if you contacted us. If your store has video then we want to find out who is passing the bills because of course, what the purpose of our investigation is, is to track it back as far as we can to determine how the bills are coming into our community and in fact, if we can track it back to find out who’s actually manufacturing the counterfeit bills. That’s our ultimate goal,” he went on to say. Grand Forks RCMP can be contacted at 250442-8288.

z FOR THE RECORD

In a story entitled “Grand Forks and Winnie Hotel Fires, a year later,” a quote from former Grand Forks Hotel resident George Genich said that the hotel had been burning for a couple of hours before fire crews responded to the March 7 fire and it was an issue of lack of resources. To clarify, that was not actually the case. Grand Forks Fire Rescue had enough equipment and split into two groups, with one team tackling the Winnipeg Hotel fire and the other tackling the Grand Forks Hotel with minimal delay. The Christina Lake fire department assisted with the Grand Forks Hotel fire.

z Our View

No substitute for real books Grand Forks Secondary School (GFSS) is purchasing 91 ebooks for approximately $1,000, which can be loaned out like physical library books to students. Given the movement to use technology as a learning tool in the classroom (SMART boards etc.), it isn’t surprising but it really isn’t the right thing to do. GFSS converted its library to a gym, a controversial move, and while the reasoning is sound (health of students), and the fact that administration says only 20 per cent of the books were being utilized, accessibility is an issue with the digital books. Students will be able to read ebooks through devices such as laptop, tablet (iPad etc.) and personal computers and even their cellphones and while GFSS has computer stations and a number of tablet computer that it has purchased, there are more students than the number of outlets for reading ebooks. Not everyone has a cellphone and not everyone has access to a personal computer – library books are intended to be used by all aren’t they? Everyone has access to a library book Also, it is said that students and youth today seem to be spending too much time staring at screens – playing video games, social media, computer time, watching TV – and reading through a device isn’t doing much to cut down the amount of time students and youth stare at screens. Research from the United Kingdom’s Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health even suggests that with 6.1 hours of screen time (the average for British adolescents) there is a link with Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. While the move to the use of technology use is a sign of the times, even in the classroom, using ebooks is not a replacement to the physical borrowing of books from a library. While every student can take a library book out, not everyone has tablets, personal computers or laptops or other devices that can be used to view the digital books and therefore, the digital books won’t be as accessible. Even if library books weren’t seeing as much use, all students should be able to borrow a library book at any time, whether the reasons are for research or even for pleasure.

Question of the Week

from www.grandforksgazette.ca

z Porteous Profiles

SASCHA PORTEOUS

regimented, in my opinion. The day’s events started with an official security briefing at 7:45 a.m. on Friday morning, to establish a certain set of rules, regulations and time restraints. As we toured the pilots’ training school, simulators, flights, operations centre, hangars, and the control tower, I began to understand why the rules are set in place. Sending student pilots up in the air and bringing them back safely takes a huge amount of synchronicity. Everyone involved in the operation needs to be on the same page and has to perform their task accurately each and every time. One single mistake could be

disastrous. Before Stefan and his cohorts ever take to the skies, they have to run through a series of long checklists in sequential order (mostly from memory), and when they are flying in certain training missions they are expected to reach their target to the exact second. The system works and it produces some of the best aviators in the world; living by its rules, regulations and time constraints. By the end of the weekend, instead of cringing at the thought of the strict air force structure, which we had been abiding by, I began to respect it. I was surprised to see Stefan and his four fellow graduates, flight instructors, junior students and senior professionals stand on the tables carousing together. But as they sang the air force march, I noticed they were all perfectly in sync and it was all done with the same precision they live by while defending our skies.

Hundreds of men and women dressed in air force mess kit were standing on the tables, they chanted and shouted out loud, before they drowned their gullets with a full glass of wine. “What’s happening?” I thought to myself, as I watched my younger brother perform this ritual at the mess hall during his graduation dinner. My brother Stefan was celebrating his wings graduation this past weekend in Moose Jaw, Sask., which is a big milestone in the Royal Canadian Air Force as a student gets recognized as a qualified air force pilot. My whole family flew to the prairies to take part in the celebration. While I was mostly looking forward to the weekend, I was also a little apprehensive. I support my brother 110 per cent and I am incredibly proud of his accomplishment. However, I could never do what he does, the rules and regulations of the air force have always been a little too

LETTERS z CITY COUNCIL

This committee not whole Editor: Re: New council meeting format on March 4 (story, Feb. 27 issue) The absence of Coun. Michael Wirischagin from meetings of the COTW (Committee of The Whole) – council’s new system of dealing with parts of the meetings in a less formal way on Monday mornings prior to the structured evening meetings – means it is not what it is supposed to be with everyone in attendance. While I sympathize, to a degree, with the good councillor’s dilemma, his situation deserves closer scrutiny. I’m not suggesting for one moment that he is in the same league as politicians who bring the very notion of democratic representation into the disrepute we witness on an almost daily basis (in fact, I sympathize with his position having also burned the candle at both ends) but it seems to me that he must make a decision because, as he is unable to meet his obligations as a duly elected councillor, he is in a tight spot. I am not prepared to meet the councillor’s honorarium and expenses while he is unable to turn up to work to represent our community at council table. As his 9-to-5 job interferes with his councillorship he has choices to make. Firstly, re-arrange his 9-to-5 job such that it doesn’t interfere with his obligations to the electorate or secondly, quit his

9-to-5 job in order to apply himself whole-heartedly to his elected position or thirdly, quit as councillor. His absence from COTWs throws an unfair burden on the rest. In any event, he should seriously reconsider re-election with this load on his plate because there is much to be done in chambers. While it is difficult to make these points in a small community where we are all neighbours (I live almost next door to he and his family) the point needs to be made. Employers don’t pay people who do not turn up for work. The community is the employer in this case. Dave Milton, Grand Forks

Anger at bylaw Editor:

Re: Bylaw has dog owners biting mad (story, March 13 issue) Guess I’ll be shopping in Osoyoos from now on. My pit bull border collie cross rescue dog has been accused of being vicious and according to this bylaw, is vicious. She is aggressive – she wants to meet people and other dogs and lets all know. She barks at deer, thus keeping them far away from my fence. If I thought non-dog people could understand the difference between vicious and aggressive I might have a different viewpoint. I have never had a problem with her in off-leash parks where the dogs are all on equal footing. Where are the provi-

z OPINION sions for penalizing owners who flaunt the bylaws? Where are the provisions for protecting caring owners from malicious complaints by people who just do not like dogs? Or who want to use the bylaw to “get back” at a neighbour? If my dog escapes from my truck in Grand Forks, what provision is there for notifying a non-resident? Bad bylaws, poorly written, will be abused. John Coburn, Midway *** Editor: I completely disagree with the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary’s Bylaw No. 1511. Pit bulls are saddled with an undeserved reputation fueled by ignorance and misunderstanding. Breed specific legislation (BSL) does nothing to diminish dog bites and attacks. It is costly to enforce and cannot be enforced consistently, as it is based on a look not a reality. Italy has recently repealed BSL in favour of more general terminology that addresses the problem of irresponsible owners and PROVEN vicious dogs. There isn’t a single statistic to prove BSL works and in jurisdictions with BSL, dog bite statistics do not decrease. BSL doesn’t work as any breed of dog can display bad behaviour and can bite, and resources and efforts are better spent educating owners, enforcing rules, and ticketing owners who fail to comply. For those of us who live out of city limits, limiting the number of dogs that a responsible owner with acreage can have makes no sense. Punish the deed not the breed! Russell Danish, Grand Forks

We value public education On May 14, the voters of this province will be going to the polls to cast their vote for the party that will form the next government of British Columbia. TERESA REZANSOFF In anticipation of that, the BC School Trustees Association (BCSTA), representing all 60 boards of education in the province, has begun an election campaign to raise the profile of public education amongst voters and the candidates running for office. Our campaign, “MeToo!” is designed to get conversations going about the value and worth of public education, locally and provincially. It gives citizens and candidates the opportunity to declare, “We value public education.” This is our opportunity to forge a vision for one of our province’s most valuable resources: public education. We know that there is no greater determinant of the long-term well-being for British Columbia and its citizens than the quality of its public education system. When students succeed, British Columbia succeeds. BCSTA, boards of education and individual trustees will be asking candidates to commit to a set of core values. It is through legislation that the co-governance relationship between government and boards of education is established. We are seeking a commitment to the continuance and strengthening of the co-governance relationship between boards of education and government. We want government to work more closely with us, their co-governors, on the development of policy, legislation and initiatives affecting public education and student achievement. The interests of citizens and the students of B.C. are best served through collaboration and consultation. We are strongly encouraging government to continue to work with boards of education to increase support for early learning programs, including processes for cross-ministerial co-operation and funding. School District 51 has worked hard to increase success rates for our Aboriginal learners, who account for 26 per cent of its students. Our graduation rate for Aboriginal students stands at 93 per cent. We are doing well, but there is still work to be done as the negative effects of the residential school legacy in B.C. continue to be felt in the public education system. Trustees are seeking a commitment from government to collectively re-double efforts to recognize the culture and history of Aboriginal peoples in provincial curriculum. Publicly elected school trustees are very proud of the success of B.C.’s public education system, but we have increasing concerns about the impact of funding pressures on the system. While we fully understand the realities of the current global and provincial economies, we also know that our students’ futures cannot wait. Trustees ask that government commit to predictable and stable funding, which includes the annual addition of dollars to address cost pressures. (Cost pressures include items like teacher pension and Medical Services Plan increases, rise in utility costs, negotiated salary increases and more.) So, in these last weeks leading up to the May 14 election, we hope that you will express your support for public education. Join your local trustees at all-candidates meetings where we will be asking candidates to commit to the above values. Go to Facebook.com/METOOBC and like us, tweet out what you value about public education to @BC_STA#METOOBC or check out the website www.meetoo.bc.ca. Let’s get the conversation going. – Teresa Rezansoff is chair for the SD51’s board of education

RCMP: Gas line ruptures as man dies

SASCHA PORTEOUS Gazette Reporter

A gas line was damaged as a man died from what appears to be a massive heart attack in the parking lot of the Boundary Hospital in Grand Forks. Jeffrey Ulmer, a 47-year-old resident from Grand Forks, had driven himself to the hospital on March 16 at 5:53 a.m. and upon arriving at the front doors of the emergency room, it appears that he attempted to put the vehicle into park but accidently put it into reverse and then collapsed at the wheel of the truck, said Grand Forks RCMP’s Staff Sgt. Jim Harrison. “The truck proceeded in reverse across the parking lot, striking a parked vehicle, the right hand wheel of the truck was half ripped off, the truck then proceeded in two large (45 to 60 metre) diameter circles in the parking lot before final sticking the corner of the building and breaking a natural gas line,” he said. A Grand Forks RCMP constable attended the scene. He first saw a Mazda Three in the parking lot severely damaged. “He then noticed a truck backwards up against the north east corner of the emergency wing of the hospital. Upon approaching the truck he detected a very strong odor of gas, he then noticed there was a male in the truck slumped over,” said Harrison. “He pulled the person from the truck and commenced CPR immediately because the person was unresponsive at that time.” Medical staff came out and determined the person died of what appeared to be a heart attack. “The fire department attended and ventilated the emergency department because gas had encroached the emergency department,” said Harrison.

The coroner has been advised and will conduct a full post mortem examination. Thieves make off with rifles in break-and-enter at Christina Lake Thieves with a possible fancy for guns made off with five rifles during one of nine break-and-enters at Christina Lake. “On the 11th of March, the first of a series of nine breakand-enters into seasonal residences at Christina Lake were reported,” said Harrison. “The initial incident occurred at about 1:40 a.m., when the (seasonal resident) woke up to find the culprit inside his house.” The man fled outside the house, got into a waiting dark coloured SUV, driven by another male and they headed out to Highway 3 and headed eastbound,” said Harrison. “Shortly there after, we got reports of a series of break-andenters and while out at the scene investigating those, we came across even more.” RCMP believes they happened on either March 9, 10 or 11. The break-and-enters happened on East Lake Drive, Brown Road and Page Road. “In most cases, they were forcible entries into the house, broken windows, pried latches on doors, we have reports of TVs taken and in one particular case they broke into a gun safe and removed five long guns believed to be rifles of some type,” said Harrison. Seasonal break-ins are not uncommon at Christina Lake, however most times they don’t come to the attention of police until months afterwards when the seasonal residents come back and discover that their place has been broken into, he said. The suspects are believed to be from out of town and the matter is still under investigation.

Q.

WHY IS BASEMENT FLOODING VERY SERIOUS?

Besides the inconvenience of the mess and the disruption of your household routine, did you know that frequent occurrences of basement flooding can result in long-term damage to the building and contents that may not be covered by insurance. Generally your insurance will not cover you for water damage caused by continuous or repeated seepage or leakage of water or steam from within a plumbing, heating, sprinkler or air conditioning system, or domestic appliance, including but not limited to a waterbed, aquarium. Your insurance also will not respond if water damage is caused by flood, surface water, spray, waves, tides, tidal waves, ice or waterborne objects. The water damage must be caused by the sudden and accidental escape of water from a watermain, the sudden and accidental escape of water or steam from within a plumbing, heating, sprinkler, air conditioning system or domestic appliance, which is located inside your dwelling. Basement flooding problems can be avoided or prevented by checking your downspouts and eavestroughs. Make sure the downspouts extend away from your house so water does not collect next to the basement walls and windows, it should drain away from your house. Clean debris from eavestroughs regularly. If the land around your home slopes in toward the foundation, you want to build up the ground around your home so that the water drains away from your basement walls. Also examine sidewalks, patios, decks and driveways as these can settle over time and cause water to drain back towards your basement walls. Proper drainage helps to reduce the amount of water seepage into your home through basement windows and cracks in your basement walls.

In order to address the U.S. federal budget deficit, a policy known as sequestration was mandated under the Budget Control Act, which will see $85 billion in cuts to federally funded programs as of March 1. As a result, even longer wait times will be coming in the near future at U.S. border crossings, according to Mike Milne, public affairs officer with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). In order to address those cuts the CBP has taken significant budget reduction actions, which could have a significant impact on border crossings, said Milne. As part of its cost saving measures, “reductions to the overtime for folks at the port of entry went into effect on March 2,” he said. “The border patrol overtime reductions will begin on April 7. “Furlough notices were also issued to 60,000 employees of CBP last week on March 7.” A furlough notice is a notification that everybody in the agency can expect up to 14 days off without pay for the remainder of the fiscal year, which runs until Sept. 30. “The furlough notices will go into effect mid April,” said Milne. The CBP has stated that it will continue to make every effort to minimize the sequester’s impact on public safety and national security, but expects that planned furlough of employees, along with reductions to overtime and hiring freeze will increase wait times at ports of entry, including international arrivals at airports, and reduce staffing between land ports of entry. The Canadian Border Services Agency did not want to comment on the specific impacts this might have on the border crossings in Grand Forks.

Rosie Gartner, a Grand Forks resident, said longer wait times would discourage her from crossing the border. “I would probably come down a lot less often,” she said. Gartner, who uses the border crossing three to four times a month, said it’s pretty typical to wait 10 to 15 minutes to get into the States, but wait times can increase at peak hours. “It depends the time of day you come, if you are going first thing in the morning or after work when everyone wants to go grab gas it can be pretty busy, pretty long lines,” she said. Another frequent border hoper, Edwin Henczel, said he usually doesn’t have to wait more than 15 minutes. He doesn’t think the cuts will have a huge impact on the crossings at Danville/ Carson and Cascade, near Christina Lake. “I can’t see that it will make a difference here,” said Henczel, adding that the ports are fairly small and there is never a large amount of traffic when he goes down, which is roughly once a week. He suspects that it might make a difference over holidays or busy weekends. It is difficult to project the impact of the reductions on individual employees or job occupations, stated the CBP agency.

Roxul invests $6M in air control

Roxul Inc. said it is taking steps to reduce emissions from its Grand Forks factory with a $6 million project set to start in June. Roxul announced that it will be installing new emission abatement technology by the summer to reduce smoke and odour coming from its Grand Forks operation and to improve air quality in the area’s airshed. The Regenerative Thermal Oxidizer (RTO) technology that will be used is a type of high efficiency afterburner that includes desulfurization equipment, Roxul said. An RTO is a widely accepted air pollution control technology that uses a high temperature burner to destroy emissions that contribute to visual smoke and odour. “We have selected this technology because we believe it will best address the challenges we face due to the valley loca-

tion of our facility,” Grand Forks factory manager Elmar Hermann explained in a release. “The technology is well known in other industries, such as wood processing facilities.” According to Leslie McLaren, Roxul’s manager of corporate communications, the RTO technology was selected after a review of conditions and emissions from the Grand Forks operation by independent third party experts, followed by an analysis of available abatement technologies and trials on various technologies. “The research on this project has been two years in the making,” McLaren explained. “We have done a lot of testing to ensure we have the right solution.” The RTO installation will be customized to fit the Grand Forks factory’s specific requirements and is expected to be completed by late-July.

BDAC voices displeasure at SD51 regarding censorship Gazette Reporter

The president of the Boundary District Arts Council (BDAC), Michele Garrison, pointed her finger at School District 51 (SD51) for the censorship of an “actor’s backside” during the production DECK, at the regular meeting of the board of education on March 12. She said the school district required the BDAC to censor the partial nudity in the performance series play. Garrison said they could not endorse the censorship of the arts and therefore were prohibited from presenting the play in the Centennial Auditorium. “The BDAC asks that School District 51 review its policy and its ad hoc interpretations of its policy with an eye to achieve consistency as well as serve our

over arching community values of noncensorship of the arts,” she said. Board chair Theresa Rezansoff told Garrison that she could not comment at present, but said she would discuss the issue further with her colleagues and respond at a later date. New vice-chair elected The current practice of not electing a vice-chair to the board of education was changed on March 12, when trustees voted Cathy Riddle to be the new vicechair of SD51. Rezansoff explained that the board had been operating under the guise of a rotating vice-chair, so that all the trustees could get the experience of being vice-chair. However, some concerns of continuity were raised, as a rotating vice-chair cannot see an agenda though, from beginning to end.

So the trustees elected to have a permanent vice-chair and a rotating backup to the vice-chair. Riddle seem pleased with the vote as she smiled and thanked her trustees for their support. School transition rejected The board defeated a motion put forward by trustee Dave Reid, which looked at making John A. Hutton Elementary a Kindergarten to Grade 3 school and Dr. D. A. Perley Elementary a Grade 4 to 7 school for the 2013/2014 school year. Rezansoff said that there wasn’t enough time to consult with the parents, teachers and staff before the commencement of the 2013/14 school year, and so the transition would be too hasty. The trustees and board members agreed, except Reid, by unanimously defeating the motion.

New retirement community becomes popular social hub by Kathleen Thomas A mere three short months since the official opening of Silver Kettle Village, Grand Forks’ newest retirement community, and the place is already a hub of social activity. Residents barely had time to unpack treasured possessions before they were able to meet and mingle with other like-minded, independent seniors. The activities schedule is designed to give everyone the chance to socialize at their own speed. From a basic game of cribbage to full day outings, residents find they can choose activities that best meet their needs. The biggest event for February, a Valentine’s Day Dance, had Silver Kettle Village dwellers and dance enthusiasts from town cutting a rug to local band Buck Naked and the Saddle Tramps. The band, as well known for their music as for the fact that Grand Forks mayor Brian Taylor is a founding member, dished out their popular brand of bluesy country rock. The regular dances held at Silver Kettle Village are a fun way to spend an evening with your spouse or to meet new friends and dance partners. Plentiful refreshments wait on the sidelines. “With all the chores I used to do at home, I didn’t have time to think about social activities,” said Kay Hummel. “But since I moved here I don’t have to worry about a thing. All the housekeeping, transportation, security and meals are provided so I can spend more time with my friends. Like enjoying the Valentine’s Dance.” Programming at Silver Kettle Village is designed to meet the needs of all types, from folks who prefer more alone time to regular social butterflies. “We want residents here to feel like they are in a village, with all the opportunities and benefits a small community can provide. This can be anything from a friendly smile in the morning to a walk with

a friend or a full-on dance party,” said Community Manager, Michele Shillaker. Healthy social activities are a key element of programming at the Village. Residents can participate as much as they wish in classes, outings and walks down the treed streets of the city. Because the seniors at Silver Kettle Village are invested in living their best lives, they can mingle in the common areas or have favorite guests to visit in their private suites. Grandkids are always keen to be invited to a sleepover with their grandparents. But social options aren’t the only ones packed into the monthly calendar. There are artistic, fitness and spiritual choices as well. Highlights of the past month included a Super Bowl party for sports fans, a guest appearance by can-can dancers and Chinese New Year’s celebrations. The calendar for March is also packed with events. Residents are looking forward to a bus trip that includes an art gallery visit and lunch at Omega, musical performances, a special Easter dinner buffet, and a ‘50s themed lunch at the Village with favorite foods of that era, By the time local officials cut the ribbon on the newly constructed community in December 2012, most of the 48 independent living units at Silver Kettle Village were already spoken for. A near-full house now means there are plenty of options for forming new friendships and finding new hobbies. The balance of independence, privacy, staff hospitality and security is the priority for this retirement community. Hospitality services included in the affordable monthly rent and include weekly housekeeping, 24 hour emergency monitoring, shuttle bus service, and hot, delicious meals prepared by on-site chefs. For more information you can call Silver Kettle Village at (250) 442-0667 or visit goldenlife.ca.

Dave Bachmier, owner of Neighbours Computers, and Coun. Cher Wyers look at some of the proposed beautification plans, at an open house showing at Grand Forks city hall on March 12. SASCHA PORTEOUS PHOTO

SASCHA PORTEOUS Gazette Reporter

The City of Grand Forks has allocated some additional money and energy into beautifying the downtown core. The city held an open house at city council on Tuesday, March 12, to show the community what it has planned as part of its beautification/ revitalization project. The project was granted early budget approval at city council on Monday, March 18. Some of the plans include additional seating benches, fixing sidewalk inequities, fixing tree wells, putting LED lighting in the trees and under benches, painting crosswalks, putting in new garbage cans, implementing recycling abilities, bringing back the hanging baskets and putting in more trees along Third Street. “This is going to help the pride that people have in their downtown, help stimulate more people to visit the downtown core, help create more of a community gathering space and it will bring back the things that I heard were traditionally important to the community,” said Doug Allin, the city’s administrative officer. The first focus will be from Fifth Street to Second Street and from Central Avenue to Market Avenue, said Sasha Bird, manager of technical services and utilities for the City of Grand Forks. She said the city used to have hanging baskets along Central Avenue but they haven’t been hung for the past few years because the maintenance costs were so high.

“This council decided they wanted to bring back the baskets because a lot of people travelled through here and they would say ‘Oh what a beautiful community, look at the lovely flowers,’ but since we didn’t have them, people would come through and say ‘Oh, how come it’s so dingy,’” she said. The public had an opportunity at the open house to put their thoughts down on paper and fill out a feedback form. “I think it’s a great idea and it’s been due,” said James Wilson, executive director of the Boundary Country Regional Chamber of Commerce. “I think it’s forward thinking and that’s what our town needs.” In terms of paying for the project, which would cost the City approximately $250,000, Wilson is happy to see the allocation of tax dollars go toward beautification, as long it means an increase in business and tourism into the community. Joe Sheremeto of Neighbours Computers had relatively positive feedback. “Yes, the beautification is nice, but as long as it encourages more business into the downtown area, because there are a lot of empty store fronts,” he said. Grand Forks resident Lorraine Dick is absolutely exited and thrilled about the project. It’s always nice to put a fresh face on things and always nice to clean things up,” she said. “I mean if we are going to get guests we usually clean our house and we are expecting guests in the form of tourists so we are cleaning house.”

COMMUNITY ❚ NOMINATIONS

Deadline for Kootenay Music Award nominations March 29

BLACK PRESS

If you’ve been considering nominating a band or DJ for the Kootenay Music Awards (KMA), now is the time to do it. All artists who live in the Kootenays are eligible to enter a song in one of the 10 award categories that recognize the range of musical talent coming out of the region. There’s a category for everything from best DJ to best roots and blues band. More than 70 songs have already been submitted online at kootenaymusicawards.com and KMA president Chad Hansen hopes to see many more roll in before nominations close next Friday (March 29). “If you’re an artist yourself or even just a fan of a local band, I’d encourage you to go to the website and submit an MP3. Let people hear it, you never know what could happen,” Hansen says. Fans can check out the music that’s been submitted so far by clicking the “nominate” tab at the top of the page, then going to “view entries.” Hansen has listened to many of the submissions and is impressed by the variety.

“There’s some really eclectic, interesting music that’s been posted up there,” Hansen says. After nominations close, a panel of five industry judges will shortlist their favourites for public voting. The judges include music festival pro-

The Automation was named Best New Artist in the 2012 Kootenay Music Awards (KMA) and has nominated a track for this year’s awards as well.

❚ FRAUD

Beware of lottery scams

“These are great people to get your music into the ear of,” Hansen says. So far, the nomination page is dominated by Nelson-based artists. But Hansen is encouraging bands for every corner of the Kootenays to get their music in. Bands who entered last year are also welcome to enter again. Shane Johnsen, frontman for The Automation – winner of Best New Band in last year’s KMAs – says he saw a surge in new listens on the band’s Soundcloud page during the public voting period. “We had about 2,000 unique listens, which is huge boost for a band just starting out,” Johnsen says. “We recorded everything ourselves, without a producer, so we were really proud to be recognized last year.” The Automation has submitted an early release off their next album for this year’s awards and will be playing at the awards gala event, along with last year’s Best Artist winner Shred Kelly, on May 10 at Spiritbar in Nelson. To enter a song in the Kootenay Music Awards, go to kootenaymusicawards.com.

COMPETITION BUREAU CANADA

Lotteries, sweepstakes and contests are one of the ways scam artists and fraudsters try to lure innocent people in, whether by email or junk mail. Many Canadians are lured by the excitement of a surprise win and find themselves sending huge amounts of money to claim fake prizes. What to look for You cannot win money or a prize in a lottery unless you have entered it yourself or someone else has entered it on your behalf. You cannot be chosen as a random winner if you don’t have an entry. Many lottery scams try to trick you into providing banking or personal details to claim your prize. You should not have to pay any fee or tax to claim a legitimate prize. Don’t be fooled by claims that the offer is legal or has government approval – many scammers will tell you this. Instead of receiving a grand prize or fortune, you will lose every cent that you send to a scammer, and if you have provided other personal details, your identity could be misused too. A fake prize scam will tell you that you have won a prize or a contest. You may receive a phone call,

an email, a text message or see a pop-up screen on your computer. There are often costs involved with claiming your prize, and if you do receive a prize, it may not be what was promised you. The scammers make their money by making you pay fees or taxes, call their premium rate phone numbers or send premium text messages to claim your prize. These premium rate calls can be very expensive and the scammers will try to keep you on the line for a long time or ask you to call a different premium rate number. Protect yourself Remember: Legitimate lotteries do not require you to pay a fee or tax to collect winnings. Caution: Never send money to anybody you don’t know and trust. Think: Don’t provide personal banking details to anyone you don’t know and trust. Investigate: Examine all of the terms and conditions of any offer very carefully – claims of free or very cheap offers often have hidden costs. Calls to premium rate phone numbers or premium text messages can be very expensive. You cannot win money or a prize in a contest unless you have entered it yourself, or someone has entered it on your behalf.

A local mechanic has been growing his hair in honour of two friends he lost to cancer and will soon have it cut to benefit cancer research as well. Jim Hartley of ProMobile Mechanics has been growing his hair for three years and will shed his locks on April 27, Daffodil Day, which the Canadian Cancer Society designated as a day people can show support for people living with cancer and those who have died from it. “In April and August of 2009 I lost two very close friends (Barry Irwin and Al Hewson) and at that point, I decided to grow my hair for cancer,” Hartley explained. “It’s been three years and it’s time for it to come off. Someone who’s battling cancer can have a wig with what I’ve grown.” While the hair growth is for a good cause, Hartley admits having long hair has been a bit of a hindrance, especially given his line of work. “As a mechanic it’s quite a pain because you’re dealing with grease and oil all the time and your hair is always full of grease and oil. You have to be careful when leaning over stuff because you don’t want to get it caught in a fan belt but it’s time for it to go,” Hartley said. “I just want a change; I need to get this hair off and it’s starting to get to me – it’s too

Responses from water survey Last fall the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) launched an in-depth survey and held multiple meetings to learn more about watershed issues and how they are affecting communities in the Boundary region. The response was overwhelming. Over 670 people responded, with many writing hundreds of words about watershed issues and concerns. I spent weeks entering the responses and even more poring over the results to extract the key themes and main issues. Here are some of the highlights. Respondents clearly understand how vital water is to meet their needs for quality of life, economic opportunities, and assurance of healthy ecosystems. Residents overwhelmingly feel that the Kettle River and its tributaries are very important to both their quality of life and economy in their communities. The most valued uses of water are household use, followed by ecosystem and quality of life values such as fish and wildlife habitat, enjoyment, swimming, paddling, and amenity value. We summarized the values and aspirations of residents with the following draft outcomes and goals. Healthy aquatic ecosystems means (A) adequate flow and water levels to sustain aquatic life (B) good water quality to sustain aquatic life (C) high habitat quality in wetlands, riparian areas and associated uplands, supporting biodi-

versity and aquatic life. Safe and secure water supporting healthy communities means (A) safety and security of drinking water (B) abundant opportunities for safe water-based recreation and quality leisure activities (C) abundant opportunities for enjoyment and expression of spiritual, cultural, heritage and aesthetic values. Reliable, quality water supplies for a sustainable economy means (A) adequate water quality for current and future uses (B) adequate, secure water supplies for sustainable levels of use. These statements will help the stakeholder advisory group develop recommendations that truly reflect public interests and values. Another key purpose of the survey was to identify watershed issues and understand how they affect people’s needs and values of water across the region. The highest level of concern was around the reliability of water supplies and the impacts of wastewater and stormwater on surface water quality.

Second Opinion

Residents were particularly concerned with how water use, pollution, and agricultural practices related to declining surface water quality, unreliable flows or water levels, and the degradation of aquatic ecosystems. Survey respondents and meeting participants provided in-depth commentary on the cause and effects of watershed issues. They also gave solutions to many of these issues: “I regularly use the river for fishing and on every occasion… I remove bags of bottles, plastics, and other discarded items. There needs to be educational promotion… and regularly put resources towards clean up.” Read the summary report and full results on our website at http://kettleriver.ca/whatweheard. We are also opening a short survey on the website to get your feedback on the outcomes and goals. On another note, Friday, March 22 is World Water Day. Raise a glass to celebrate clean, fresh water and healthy ecosystems (water.org). – Contact Graham Watt (plan@kettleriver.ca) about this or any other watershed questions. All articles are online http://kettleriver.ca – look for the menu item “Kettle River Q&A.” Watt is Kettle Watershed Management Plan project co-ordinator for the RDKB.

Peewee championships on

KARL YU

Gazette Editor

The Grand Forks Peewee Bruins played tough in their 2013 Peewee Tier 4 B.C. Hockey Championship opener against the Kelowna Peewee Rockets on Sunday night – a 3-2 loss. The Bruins jumped out to a 2-0 lead on goals by Nathan Jourdin and Malcolm Turner but surrendered three unanswered goals – Jourdin scored nine seconds into the first period. According to Grand Forks’ head coach Darryl Turner, the team got the start it wanted but not the finish. “We’ve been wanting to get ahead of this team. We played them twice this year earlier in the year and we hadn’t seen them for a while and we wanted to get a good start and get ahead and play with the lead and that’s exactly what we did. Nathan the last month has just been working his butt off and that was just a hard-work goal. It bounced off his shins and he buried it,” Turner said. The team took a number of penalties throughout the game and while it was able to kill some of Kelowna’s power play chances, the short-handed opportunities can aid the opposition, whether they score or not according to Turner. “We’ve taken some penalties all year and I’ve been talking about understanding what the ref is going to give you and understanding what you can do

in a game,” he said. “We killed a lot of penalties but momentum shifts as that team, even if you kill a penalties, if you get two or three or four and we kill them off, they still get that momentum and get some more confidence.” Despite the loss Bruins’ goalie Kaeden Lane had a good game, making key saves, some of the acrobatic variety. “We have the best goalie in the tournament here, he is fabulous and he’s a great goalie and you know what? We ride him and you can’t apologize for having a great goalie – he’s part of our team. We were outshot, but the shots were close, and he made some key

saves, he kept us in it,” Turner said. When asked about what lessons the Bruins could take from the opening loss, Turner said that all three goals against came from players blindly shooting the puck around the boards and he said the team needed to be calmer. “We made the same mistake a few times and it cost us. We have to stay out of the penalty box and take a little more time to make that good outlet pass and then we’ll break out a little smoother,” explained the coach. Besides Grand Forks and Kelowna, teams from Vanderhoof, Prince George, Semiahmoo, Juan de Fuca, and Windermere Valley are taking part in this round robin championship. Grand Forks defeated Prince George 3-1 Monday afternoon and lost 5-4 vs. Windermere Valley on Tuesday morning. It played Semiahmoo on Tuesday afternoon but the score was not available at press time. The locals will play Vanderhoof tonight (Wednesday) at 8 p.m. and Juan de Fuca on Thursday afternoon at 2 p.m. The championship will go 8 p.m. Thursday night with the top two teams vying for the title. Admission is $5 for the day or $20 for a family pass for the week.

Joke of the Week:

~ Jane Wagner

While working in a post office, a lady barged in complaining that she got home to find a note from the mail man saying that he tried to deliver a package but nobody was home. “My husband was home all day!”she fumed. After giving her the package I heard her tell somebody “Oh, I’m so excited, my husband’s new hearing aids!”

Soccer is a sport that everyone can enjoy and it’s relatively easy and inexpensive to get kids involved, said Jeff Olson, president of the Boundary Youth Soccer Association. Olson is looking for coaches, volunteers and players for this coming soccer season, which starts April 7. So far, approximately 190 kids from the ages of three to 15 have registered and 40 coaches have signed up to volunteer their time. “I know there are still about 100 kids out there waiting to register,” said Olson. “We hope to hit 280 kids this season, 300 would be awesome. We don’t have enough coaches yet either, still waiting for more of them to come out of the woodwork.” The soccer league is just in its third season and Olson said this is the busiest time of year. Trying to organize and encourage people to come out and get involved can be a lot of work. “This year we have hired an administrative company to take care of all the office drudge, which will be a huge help,” said Olson. Corporate and local businesses have been generous with support and the association now has 35 to 40 different sponsors. “We are promoting kids soccer, it’s not an elite league,” he said. “Everyone who signs up is going to play, it doesn’t matter what skill level they are.” The league is geared at soccer for life and long-term player development. Olson has three kids of his own and all of them play soccer. “That was my inspiration for starting the league,” he said, explaining that when he first moved into town four years ago, there was only a six-week drop-in club with three or four organizers. So he got together with the organizer of the drop-in league, Vince Evers, and together they started the Boundary Youth Soccer Association. This year, there will be a new introductory program, Kicks for Kids, to introduce two-and three-year-olds to the game of soccer. “We just

want to create a super safe and fun environment for the kids to come and get involved,” said Olson. Registration for a full season, which includes the spring and fall season, costs $99. “For families that can’t afford it, we also have a subsidy and for those that can’t buy gear, we buy it for them,” he said. The league has the highest number of kids involved, compared to any other sport in the Boundary. The coaching clinics are already underway, and the last clinic takes place this coming weekend. If you are looking to get involved, check out www.boundaryyouthsoccer.com for more information.

GFSS Grade 8 girls take hoops title

KARL YU

Gazette Editor

The Grand Forks Secondary School (GFSS) Grade 8 girls’ basketball team has taken the West Kootenay Grade 8 championship. The team played in the playoffs in late-February in Trail and played three games in one day, beating Boundary Central Secondary School 2210, defeating Mount Sentinel Secondary School 18-13 and in the final, GFSS defeated top-ranked Rossland Secondary 22-19 – Rossland had been undefeated up to that point said GFSS Coach Terry Nuyten. Nuyten said that the team was determined and very competitive and with a deep bench (19 players) it enabled he and co-coach Dan Makortoff to juggle players and keep the team fresh. “One of the advantages we had, because we had a deep team, some of the teams we played only had seven or eight players so our players were probably the most rested,” Nuyten said. On top of being rested, Nuyten said the team’s defence was one of its strong suits. “We played really good defence, the players tended to wear teams down and teams didn’t score on us much in the second half in all three of those games,” explained Nuyten, adding that GFSS came back from a nine-point deficit in the third game to win it all. The GFSS coach said that of all the defensive

aspects the team excelled in, it was responsibility. “The players were responsible for their checks and if other players needed help, they helped. They were very responsible and not giving their checks an easy shot,” said Nuyten. With 19 players only in Grade 8 and a championship as well, the future looks bright for GFSS girls’ basketball one would think. “Hopefully there will be more good things for this team because there are a lot of players that hopefully will continue to play, hopefully all the way through to senior,” Nuyten opined. “Last year’s Grade 8 team won it as well, so it’s two years in a row, which hopefully means a really strong junior team next year and hopefully a really strong senior team the next three years after that.”

Today is the first day of spring and that means it’s time to put away the hockey gear, snowshoes and ski equipment and replace them with lifejackets, fishing poles and watercraft. But before you head out to the lake for the first time this year there are few details you need to remember in order to be a safe and responsible on the water. Anyone operating a motorized pleasure craft must carry proof of competency on board. This includes any type of motorized watercraft you plan to operate no matter the size or horsepower. The accepted proof of competency includes a Pleasure Craft Operators Card (PCOC) obtained after passing an accredited boating safety test, proof of having passed a boating safety course in Canada before April 1, 1999 or a specified marine certificate. If you do not have proof of competency there are a couple of ways to obtain the certification. First, you can challenge the exam by purchasing a BOAT manual from Grand Forks Recreation (GFREC), study and write the test when you feel ready to do so. Second, you can register for a Boat Pro Course through GFREC. There are two courses scheduled this spring running on Saturdays, April 27 in Grand Forks and May 25 at Christina Lake. Mike Fairweather

from the Canadian Power Squadron will teach you everything you need to know during the one-day course and upon successful completion of the exam you will leave with an Pleasure Craft Operator’s Card. KIM JOHNSON Once you have your PCOC the next step is to make sure that you have all the necessary safety equipment on your boat whether it’s a motorized watercraft, kayak or canoe. Visit the transport Canada website www.boatingsafety.gc.ca for an approved list required for your vessel. Check your life-jackets and personal flotation devices for missing straps, buckles and overall wear and tear. Remember, there must be enough life-jackets available in the appropriate sizes for the individuals riding in or on a pleasure craft. On average, 140 Canadians drown in boating incidents each year. More than 90 per cent are not wearing life-jackets. Think of wearing a life-jacket like a seat belt in your car. You wear a seat belt because you won’t have time to put it on in an accident. A life-jacket won’t work if you don’t wear it. For additional information and tips on boating safety and pleasure craft regulations visit the Lifesaving Society and the Transport Canada websites. For details on the Boat Pro Courses being offered this spring or how you can challenge the BOAT exam contact GFREC at 250-442-2202.

❚ SKIING

Phoenix hosts finals ❚ Local Submission

NANCY GABRIELSE

Phoenix Mountain was a hive of activity March 10 when it hosted the Nancy Greene Ski League finals for the West Kootenay Zone. Due to some amazing support from a hardworking crew of volunteers, the day was a huge success. Our own Phoenix Mountain Racers entered two teams and took home silver and bronze, while Whitewater took first place out of a field of 13 teams – 120 racers overall. Teams came from Red Mountain, Whitewater, Salmo and Summit Lake to race the fast giant slalom course. “We had a super turnout for our race,” commented Astrid Kihl, one of three head coaches for the Phoenix team. “Our own kids, even the

youngest and newest to the team, all raced except for two kids who were ill. For a few, like Danica and Danae Roodzant and Zaylen Romaine it was their first race ever. “I’m seeing way more confidence in these young racers. Having everyone participate in the zone final was the icing on the cake to wrap up a terrific season. It’s been an awesome year for the club – lots of fun and great effort by all the kids,” Kihl said. New to this year’s zone final was a coaches’ only race, with 14 coaches from all the hills competing. Guy Forand-Choiniere and Bill Ahrens represented Phoenix. Forand-Choiniere set a blistering pace netting him the gold. Ahrens, 69, placed respectably in the middle of the pack racing against several coaches in their 20s. “It was a lot of fun to get in there and race the course all our kids had just finished. The crowd was all for it,” Ahrens said.

A curling rink based out of the Grand Forks Curling Club took silver at the BC Juvenile Curling Provincials in Prince George, B.C. Representing the Kootenays, Team Bartlett, which consisted of skip Zane Bartlett, third Evan Turgeon, second Jordan Field, lead Colin Anderson and fifth Devin Anderson, made it all the way to the final, only to lose to Team Habkirk from Coquitlam 7-3. Team Bartlett opened up play with a 10-2 loss to the same Habkirk rink but subsequently defeated Team Withey (Prince George) 12-1, Team Ueda (North Vancouver, B.C.) 6-3, Team Cliff (Vernon, B.C.) 7-2 before facing Team Habkirk in the gold medal game. “It was a good experience,” Turgeon said of the provincials. “We met a good team in Team Cliff and the only team to beat us was Team Habkirk and they wound up taking the gold,” said Bartlett. “It’s good to experience high-level curling,” Turgeon added. While happy to medal, the rink expressed some disappointment in not being able to win it all but took it in stride. “It’s a little heartbreaking but it’s our first provincials, so we’re OK with silver,” Turgeon said. “We’re the second-best in B.C.,” Bartlett said. With the gold medal so close, the rink is getting set for next season. “We’ll wait for next year’s juveniles and hopefully take gold,” Turgeon explained.

z CATHOLIC CHURCH

Pastor happy about new pope

KARL YU

Gazette Editor

With the surprising and sudden resignation of Pope Benedict XVI in February, Roman Catholics around the world had been wondering and waiting to see whom his successor would be. The conclave to elect a pope began on March 12 in Vatican City and while some speculated that it could take a week, only a day later, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, now known as Pope Francis I, emerged as the new pontiff and leader of the Catholic Church. For Father Marcel Cote, pastor of Sacred Heart Catholic Churches in Grand Forks and Greenwood, was surprised

that the church’s new leader hailed from Argentina. “I felt joy, it was such a relief and everybody felt a little lighter,” Cote explained, adding that Pope Francis would be in the spotlight, as Catholics the world over would be looking to him. “That’s where the joy comes from,” Cote explained when asked about Bergoglio taking the name Francis – after St. Francis of Assisi, who was known to live a life of poverty. Cote said that poverty is spirit and it is something that people in prosperous North America seem to look down on. Nevertheless, the church has a new leader. “The wait’s over and our prayers are with him,” Cote went on to say.

Be aware of colorectal cancer z Gov’t Submission

PROVINCE OF B.C.

Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month (March) provides a great opportunity for British Columbians to learn more about preventing, treating and beating the third most-common cancer in Canada. “If detected early, colorectal cancer can be cured and it’s important for all of us to learn about the importance of screening as well as common risk factors and symptoms,” said Minister of Health Margaret MacDiarmid. “We are proud to be launching a co-ordinated provincewide colorectal cancer screening program which begins on April 1, 2013. This program will assist in prevention and will help save lives.” B.C.’s new province-wide colorectal cancer screening program will take effect on April 1, 2013 with the introduction of the publicly funded fecal immunochemical test (FIT).

colorectal cancer screening program will be phased in starting with Vancouver Island Health Authority in April 2013, and the remaining four health authorities coming on board over the spring and summer of 2013. “B.C. is a world leader in cancer control,” said Dr. Max Coppes, president of the BC Cancer Agency. “Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month is a good lead in to the start of our new screening program. The combination of increased awareness about risk factors and a comprehensive screening program will help to save many more British Columbians from colorectal cancer each year.” The colorectal screening program will be primary-care-based, with general practitioners referring symptomless patients between the ages of 50 and 74 years for a screening test once every two years. Often, colorectal cancer has no symptoms, but warning signs include blood in the stool, abdominal pain, weight loss, nausea and vomiting. It is estimated that close to 3,000 British Columbians will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer in 2013.

Amy Terashita

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Amy Terashita, age 82. She passed away peacefully at RCH, surrounded by her family on March 8, 2013. She was predeceased by her husband Mitsuo in 2008. Beloved mother and grandmother, she is survived by her daughters Karen, Lisa (Aaron), Ellen (Rod) and grandchildren Cameron, Aliya, Brendan, and Kiara. Amy lived a good part of her life with her family and friends in Greenwood, BC. She loved the sunshine and the warmth of the Interior. She spent her final seven years living in New Westminster, B.C. where she suffered, fought, and recovered from many health challenges. Amy eventually was able to enjoy a quality of life for which she truly deserved. She travelled several times to the U.S.A to visit her daughter and her family, and lived it up with a dream vacation to Hawaii in 2010. Amy will be fondly remembered for her strength, devotion, and love for her family, and for putting others before herself. She was a great friend to all who knew her. Amy will be in our thoughts and forever in our hearts. She will be deeply missed. A private service will be held on March 25, 2013 at Queens Avenue United Church, 529 Queens Avenue (on the corner of 6th St and Queens Avenue), New Westminster, BC at 7:00 p.m. for family and friends. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association. The family would like to extend their heartfelt appreciation to the HAU staff at the Royal Columbian Hospital for their excellent care and attention which Amy received during her stay at the hospital.

God looked around His garden And found an empty place. He then looked down Upon this earth And saw your tired face. He put His arms around you, And lifted you to rest. He knew that you were suffering, He knew you were in pain, He knew you might never get well Upon this earth again. He saw the road was getting rough, And the hills were hard to climb, So He closed your weary eyelids, And whispered “Peace be thine.” It broke our hearts to lose you. But you never went alone, For part of us went with you, The day God called you home. Forever remembered by your family

Diane Makaoff Walker

With tears and heavy hearts we announce the passing of our beloved Diane in Boundary Hospital on March 11, 2013. Diane was born on February 10, 1944 at Grand Forks to parents Fred and Nellie Makaoff. Diane was employed as a bookkeeper for Dave Moore Motors in Grand Forks when she met and married Ward Walker with whom she had two children, a son, Gary and a daughter, Tara. The marriage was not meant to be and Diane and Ward separated. She then tried working at several part-time jobs, but, eventually decided that she would rather stay home and raise her children. Her children were the most important part of her life; she loved them dearly and did an admirable job of raising them. A very special and favorite part or her life was granddaughters Hailey and Jayden. During 2012 she became ill and was eventually diagnosed with that most feared of all diseases, cancer. Her disease turned out to be very aggressive and shortly after diagnosis it took her away. Diane enjoyed her computer, emails with family and friends and was very proud of assisting with Border Bruins bingo and selling admission tickets at Border Bruin games. Diane will be forever remembered and sadly missed by her son Gary, Grand Forks and her daughter Tara (Murray), Pitt Meadows, granddaughters Hailey and Jayden, Pitt Meadows, older brother Frank (Frances) Makaoff, Grand Forks and younger sister Connie (Ken) Arishenkoff, Grand Forks, as well as numerous nieces and nephews. Diane was pre-deceased by her parents Fred and Nellie Makaoff, aunt Helen Hutchinson (Rezansoff), uncles Frank and John (Blade) Rezansoff. May God accept her into his Heavenly Kingdom and may she forever rest in peace. Vechnaya Pamyat. Cremation and no service by request. Arrangements entrusted to Everett and Deborah Baker of Grand Forks Funeral Home. A private family service will be held at a later date.
