Larry Binks doesn’t mince words when he says what he thinks about people who have been dumping trash at the end of Kootenay River Road. “It’s a select few adults — disrespectful, self-centred people who are too lazy to drive to the landfill,” the Area C director said on Monday. “This isn’t about the kids who go down there and party, it’s adults and even commercial businesses.” On Saturday, a group of Creston Valley 4-H Club members (beef and dairy and poultry) braved a steady rain and chilly temperatures to help clean up the garbage. They tramped through brush and high grass, pulling out a bewildering array of items. Binks had solicited their help by making an Regional District of Central Kootenay Area C contribution to 4-H. The kids, along with adult supervisors, were loading trash onto a trailer for transport to the landfill. Binks pointed out a load of wood chips that had been dumped sometime in the last week. It had been set on fire and then left unattended by the illegal dumper. See AREA, page 3

laws, setting policing priorities is within provincial jurisdiction. Sensible BC is proposing that B.C. adopt the sensible policing act, which, according to, would “amend the Police Act, to redirect all police in the province from taking any action, including searches, seizures, citations or arrests, in cases of simple cannabis possession by adults. This would apply to all RCMP and municipal police in B.C.” Using the same provincial referendum process that was used to repeal the HST, Sensible BC volunteers are working to pre-register supporters ahead of the official 90-day signature gathering period which will commence

in September 2013. If the campaign is successful in gathering signatures from a minimum of 10 per cent of registered voters in each of the province’s 85 electoral districts during that period, a referendum on the adoption of the sensible policing act will be held in 2014. Local volunteers for the Nelson-Creston district will be at Overwaitea Foods on April 21 from 11 a.m.4 p.m. providing information to the public and pre-registering supporters. “You don’t have to be a cannabis user to support this initiative,” says local volunteer co-ordinator Marc Archambault. “This is about not making criminals out of responsible adults and not wasting public resources enforcing a prohibition that does nothing to make the province safer. There is a growing consensus among the public as well as academics, law enforcement and public health officials and political leaders that decriminalization makes sense.” For more information, and to pre-register, those interested can visit the table at Overwaitea on Sunday or visit www.

MLA says DriveAble system is RDCK voicing ‘disrespectful to seniors’ BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff “Not a week goes by that I don’t get a phone call about DriveAble,” said MLA Michelle Mungall. In Creston for the opening of her election campaign office, Mungall said that the NDP rural caucus has raised concerns about the program to test seniors’ ability to drive safely. “I think the system is very disrespectful to seniors,” she said. Initially, she said, DriveAble tests, which can include doctor-supervised questions, a computer exam and road tests, were available only in Kelowna and Vancouver to

seniors who lost their licences. The Ministry of Transportation succumbed to pressure and added another 17 testing sites, including Nelson and Cranbrook. Despite protests and petitions, the government hasn’t made further changes. “There has been no movement,” she said. “We want more fairness. We have helped many seniors through this process over the last four years, but the obstacle has been the Liberals, who haven’t gone the distance to find a better system of evaluating drivers. … “We need to explore other options. A limited licence is just one option that needs to be considered.” The computer test is a sign that the sys-

tem isn’t working, she said. “There is an 80 per cent failure rate by those tested, which means something is seriously wrong.” Locally, a number of seniors have also complained about doctors who have been administering the DriveAble cognitive awareness test, without patients understanding its purpose. “There is a complaint procedure for those who feel they have issues with their doctors,” Mungall said. “My office can help citizens through that process.” She said that her campaign office on Canyon Street has more information about DriveAble and welcomes Creston Valley residents to express their concerns.


From page 1 “This is a much-needed improvement that will provide a nice entry to the downtown core from the west,” Toyota said. “It gives us the opportunity do something attractive to welcome visitors.” The proposed realignment involves acquiring small portions of property at each corner of the intersection in order to soften curves and make the crossing safe for pedestrians. A four-way traffic light will control the flow of vehicles and movement of pedestrians. Dyer said the traffic light timing could be interrupted to allow immediate access of emergency vehicles coming out of the fire hall on 10th Avenue North. In consultation with the Town of Creston last year, the ministry also considered making the intersection into a roundabout, allowing for traffic to move through without stoppages in any direction. Several impediments were eventually identified which ruled out the practicality of that design, though. A roundabout could get jammed up when a train is on the tracks and vehicles are waiting to enter Railway Boulevard. Such an intersection also requires more space, which would have added significantly to the cost of the project, Dyer said. Cost for the project is estimated to be $5 million, including the property acquisitions.

From page 1 Later, he produced a plastic bag with a needle and syringe inside, obviously left behind by a drug-using partier. “I’m pretty sure diabetics don’t come down here to inject insulin and then dump their needles,” he said. To help counteract the actions of the irresponsible few who ruin a popular picnic and party site, Binks said Area C is offering

a $2,000 reward to anyone providing information about the dumping that leads to a conviction under the Pollution Control Act. In addition, he promises to arrange for the installation of hidden motion-triggered video cameras that could help identify bad actors. “Kudos to the members of the 4-H clubs,” Binks said. “But they shouldn’t have to be out here picking up someone else’s garbage.”

concerns over trapping BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

At least three dogs have died after being caught in beaver traps along the dikes on the Creston flats, Regional District of Central Kootenay Area C director Larry Binks said on Monday. “The beavers create havoc with the dikes and they can’t be shot, so I don’t have a problem with the traps,” he said. “But I do have a problem with there being no signage and flags to warn dog owners who walk their animals in the area.” Binks said a licensed trapper was hired by the diking district to deal with the beaver population, and that there is currently no legal requirement to post warnings or to flag the traps. Binks said a resolution from the RDCK, supported unanimously by directors, is being brought to the Association of Kootenay Boundary Local Governments in an effort to raise the trapping issue to the provincial level. The resolution reads, “Whereas trapping is legal in rural BC without any signage or notification of the presence of trap lines, meaning that in areas shared by the general public and their pets off leash there have been cases of death or severe harm to pets due to trap lines, and concerns raised for the health and safety of the general public: “Therefore be it resolved that [Union of BC Municipalities] urges the province of British Columbia to investigate and legislate ways to prevent domestic animals from being further injured in traps such as Conibear; “And further be it resolved that trap lines not be allowed in recreational areas close to communities, rural area developments and residential clusters.”

Town council divided over discretionary funding BY LORNE ECKERSLEY Advance Staff

A year after it elected to end its long-running grant-in-aid program as a cost saving measure, Creston town council continues to struggle with how to handle requests from community groups. At the April 9 regular council meeting, one request was rejected, another succeeded and a third also got money, after previously being turned down. Until 2012, Creston council’s invited applications for funding from non-profit groups after setting aside funds in each year’s budget. Hit with huge policing costs last year, the grant-in-aid program was pulled, but some money was set aside in what was then called the “mayor’s discretionary fund”. Councillors took some comfort that a Columbia Basin Trust-funded pot of money directed through the Regional District of Central Kootenay was available to local groups. On last week’s agenda, three requests were received. “On behalf of the CrestonKootenay Foundation, I am submitting this letter asking for your support as we plan for an evening reception to award CKF grants and recognize the grantees and their invaluable projects,” was the first request, signed by CKF director Nicole Nilsson. “Also we wish to hold this event to thank and acknowledge our CKF donors “We sincerely thank you for your previous contributions, the Grand Soiree grants.” “I’m uncomfortable with

this,” Coun. Judy Gadicke said. “This group gives out grants, while some of the groups that come to us are actually doing projects.” After a brief discussion, council voted to receive the information and to inform CKF that no money is forthcoming. Later in the meeting, council faced another written request, this one from the Creston Judo Club, which is bringing in an Olympic bronze medalist to conduct a seminar. An earlier request for funding was met with a suggestion that the club apply for Columbia Basin Trust funds. “This seminar event will not only be beneficial to our local and regional judokas but it will also act as an economical stimulus for the Town of Creston,” the letter said. “Those in the tourist, hotel/motel and food industry will serve to benefit from this three-day weekend as Creston hosts more than 100 participants and as many as 400 out-of-town guests.” “Why is this on the agenda?” Coun. Wes Graham asked. “Is the mayor bringing it back?” Council rules do not normally allow items to be reconsidered, except at the discretion of the mayor. However, executive assistant Bev Caldwell explained that the original request had not been acted up with a yes or no vote, but had only been received for information. After defeating a motion by Graham to once again receive the request for information, a motion to provide $500 was put on the table.

“We support hockey teams that go to provincial tournaments and all of that money goes out of town,” Coun. Jerry Schmalz said. “This request is for an event that will bring people into our community and generate economic activity.” The motion eventually passed by a 4-3 margin with Mayor Ron Toyota casting the deciding vote in favour. “This comes down to assisting our local economy,” he said. Under new business, another request for funds came forward. A Creston under-18 volleyball team has been formed and coach Bob Gollan put forward a request for funds to help defray the costs of attending two tournaments in Edmonton. The players have been fundraising with hotdog and bake sales, and helping with a Rotary event, Gollan said. Council voted to contribute $500. While there has been criticism about the lack of a grantin-aid program — it totaled $17,000 in 2011, then was cut in 2012 — organizations can apply for aid through other avenues. A miscellaneous fund containing $5,000 is available for “one-off” requests, town finance director Steffan Klassen said on Monday. A mayor’s discretionary fund holds another $2,000. Klassen pointed out that other organizations are supported within the budget: There is a $5,000 subsidy for users of Prince Charles Theatre, Dash for Trash gets

was not certain yet that the trip would go ahead. •A request for support from the District of Invermere, which is seeking to have the Union of BC Municipalities join a court challenge of the provincial government’s creation of a citizenless Jumbo Glacier Mountain Resort municipality was received for information. •A letter of support for a Telus application to construct cellphone towers outside of town boundaries was approved. •Council supported the attendance of one councillor and staff member at sustainable communities conference in Kelowna in November. Schmalz and building inspector Ross Beddoes attended the conference in 2012, which Beddoes described as “outstanding”. •The use of the area adjacent to the chamber of commerce, where the Creston Valley Farmers’ Market will start in May, was approved for a tentative Taste of Creston event being planned by the Community Arts Council of Creston. •Each of the town’s department heads presented overviews of what they are working on in 2013.

Spring has sprung, the grass has riz, I wonder where all my spare time is? People who complain, or even observe, that Creston is a sleepy little town always leave me wondering what exactly they base that comment on. On the weekend I was driving, and thinking about what a great week it had been. It all started with a writing assignment on a Friday evening, when I met with three local artists who have collaborated on a remarkable project that will be unveiled during an Arts and Culture Week event at Prince Charles Theatre on April 26. Alison Masters made 34 paintings after she and her husband returned from a two-month walk on Spain’s Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route to Compostela. She then recruited video artist Richard Reeves to create a DVD of those paintings, which had a couple of showings, including at a Friends of the Cinema night in November. Then, I am more than a little pleased to say, I subtly suggested to Gary Deatherage that he could write music for the project. A few weeks later he phoned Masters to say he had written eight short pieces and would she like to hear them? Masters was surprised, then thrilled when she heard what he had come up with. Soon Deatherage had written an original Spanish-themed piece for each painting and Masters and Reeves were matching the pictures with the music. The result is absolutely wonderful and my feature story about it will appear in next week’s issue on the night before the public presentation. On the night following that delightful interview we headed to Prince Charles Theatre, where we were thoroughly entertained by musician Shane Phillip, whose buoy-

ant personality only added to his mastery of many instruments, including the didgeridoo. The concert was a presentation of the Creston Concert Society, which for many years has

At a recent best practices meeting in Castlegar, we got the opportunity to share ideas and initiatives with colleagues in leisure services and capitalize on successes from their operations. Attending this last one were our sister operations of Castlegar, Nelson, Salmo and Slocan Valley, as well as other partners in leisure services, including Trail, Beaver Valley and Rossland, so you can imagine the wealth of knowledge and expertise brought together in one room. It always turns out mostly everyone has similar issues with customer service, leisure guide production, program maintenance, operational issues — all aspects of the service, but saying that, there can be innovative ways of solving issues coming out of a different facility. I’m not sure if you have been following the issue with Nelson aquatic centre, but it somewhat mirrors circumstances we had run into here with the arena repair project. Back at the end of January, they had some ceiling tiles fall into their pool from the suspended ceiling (similar to what you might see in an office building). They immediately shut the pool down for safety and have begun the long journey of repairs, which started with a planning process and schedule to make things right.

They had to go through a hazardous materials assessment and as it turned out, involved dealing with paint that contained lead on the roof trusses. They are currently at the stage where

Koenig is a wonderful songwriter with a long history of playing alongside some big name entertainers and for many years Snow was on the road, playing bass for some of the best in the business.

On Saturday night, I took advantage to our proximity to the international border and Lorne Eckersley drove south to Sandpoint to see Colin Hay in concert.

DriveAble testing is fair for everyone To the Editor: I would like address Tilley Kaye’s concerns about B.C. physicians screening drivers for cognitive impairment and the DriveAble program (“Creston senior fighting to get back licence,” April 11). We understand it is upsetting to lose a licence and, let me assure you, the decision to remove a person’s driving privileges is never taken lightly. But we must balance fairness with the responsibility to ensure public safety for all road users. Medical assessment tools and a physician’s driver medical examination play a key role in determining if someone is medically fit to drive. The Office of the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles (OSMV) makes decisions based on medical information from doctors and other specialists. We have worked with the province’s physician colleges to ensure doctors refer patients with possible cognitive impairment to the OSMV. Only people with suspected cognitive

oPiNioN LiNe

issues, who account for just two per cent of the medical examinations we review annually, are referred for a DriveAble assessment. The OSMV will always consider new medical information, such as an improvement in a medical condition, changes to prescription medications, or additional physician advice. Last year, we enhanced the DriveAble program and included more supports. People now have 90 minutes to complete the in-office assessment and may bring a companion to meet the assessor, observe and provide support during the practice time, and ask questions. Drivers who do not pass the inoffice assessment now also have the opportunity to take the on-road evaluation. We also expanded the number of DriveAble locations throughout the province to 28. The combined results of the in-office assessment, on-road evaluation and the driver’s medical information allow us to make fair decisions about the driver’s ability to continue driving safely. Without DriveAble we would be obligated to make driver fitness decisions based solely on a generalized medical diagnosis of cognitive decline, and we would be prohibiting more drivers than we do today.

Some should be illegal

To the Editor: In a recent opinion piece (“Quotes that shape thinking”, April 11), Lorne Eckersley said quotes shape thinking and he’s never forgotten a photo depicting, in his words, a stereotypical Jewish man with the caption, “Can’t eat pork. Doesn’t try to make it illegal for everyone.” Eckersley says this quote should be remembered at any public debate; in particular he discussed the subject of abortion, saying it should also be a personal choice. He then listed four famous, noble, oft memorized quotes and seemed to equate them with his favourite, “Can’t eat pork. Doesn’t try to make it illegal for everyone.” However, his quote sounds hollow if completed more seriously: “Can’t stop abusing his wife. Doesn’t try to make it illegal for everyone,” “Can’t live without a personal sex slave. Doesn’t try to make it illegal for everyone” or “Can’t go a day without beating her children. Doesn’t try to make it illegal for everyone.” Unlike unimportant personal taste decisions, some choices should be illegal for everyone. Carol Albo Rossland

Library supports local authors

“If the local public library doesn’t support local authors, who will?” Whenever I travel, I like to read books by authors who are from wherever I’m going. While preparing for a trip to Nigeria, I stumbled across one of my favourite books of all time — with the unforgettable

from the library. After meeting Tanna Patterson in the library stacks one day, I started on her Butterflies In Bucaramanga. Around that time, I met Luanne Armstrong for the first time. I’d heard of her, but hadn’t read any of her books or realized that she lived in this area. I read through Pete’s Gold and Bordering before finally getting my hands on I’ll Be Home Soon. I spent a few years working at Carnegie Library in Vancouver’s Downtown Eastside, and could recognize some of the sights and scenes in this last book. We are blessed to have such a quantity and quality of writers living in our midst, and I’m honoured Aaron Francis to be hosting several of them at the library over the next few months. title, The Palm-Wine Drinkard and his Dead Sometime this summer, the inimitaPalm-Wine Tapster in the Dead’s Town — by ble Dave Perrin will be sharing stories Nigerian writer Amos Tutuola. from his country vet series of books.

this?) A second book in the series is reportedly underway — I’m hoping for a sneak peak during her visit! While not really local, we are also expecting a visit from Victoria-based Carolyn Herriot, author of the ZeroMile Diet series and A Year on the Garden Path. Her approach to organic growing and homegrown food fits right into Creston’s commitment to sustainable food production. We are still solidifying dates for each of these authors. Please check our Facebook page for updates as they come in. In the meantime, you can help support local authors by participating in OBOK 2013. The challenge is to read the three shortlisted books (the library has two copies of each) and vote for the one you like best. The winner will be touring all of the Kootenay Library Federation libraries sometime in the fall. The three shortlisted books are Collier’s Confined Space, Banyard’s Never Going Back, and Kimberley-based “extreme” travel writer Bruce Kirkby’s Dolphin’s Tooth. Voting ballots are available at the library. Our mission as a library is to enhance the economic, social and cultural vitality of the community we serve. Supporting locally based authors is an important part of this goal. We invite you to help us fulfill this mission by taking part in One Book One Kootenay and joining us in our upcoming author visits. One final note: You may know that April 13-16 marks the Burmese new year, which is the most important public holiday in Burma. Happy new year to all of Creston’s Burmese residents! Aaron Francis is the chief librarian at the Creston and District Public Library.

Volunteers are the fibre of Creston

May long weekend, 2008. That’s the weekend my husband and I first experienced Creston and it was love at first sight.

The day was never long enough, and running at full

It took two years (one of which I worked at a casual job) to get over the shock of not being a slave to the clock. It has also taken that long to get over the culture shock — that

In my position at the Therapeutic Activation Program for Seniors (TAPS), I have the privilege of spending time with the seniors just because I want to. It is a warm and friendly place where hugs and cups of coffee flow freely. Some of the seniors are new to the program and a little shy, while others laugh, joke and talk as if they were at a family reunion. A beautiful woman who has been attending TAPS for five or six years offered to share her Terry Nowak journey through TAPS with you and me. She has several things she wants others to know about TAPS and thought that her story would allow others to understand what TAPS has done for her. When I asked about using her name for this article, she blushed and wasn’t too sure about doing that so I will call her Ruth. Ruth is a long term resident of Creston. She has siblings, children and grandchildren, friends and neighbors here. In her life, she has been busy and productive and continues to be as active as possible in her church. This sounds like a person who has all the answers, who can cope with whatever comes her way, and Ruth thought so too. Ruth’s husband became ill and homebound, and she was his caregiver. This was a big change

Therapeutic Activation Program for Seniors (TAPS): Now there’s a program. Not only do I get to meet and learn about very interesting Creston residents, I get to enjoy some of the many activities TAPS offers its seniors. What a treat! I have “found” myself. I am a volunteer! Are you contemplating volunteering? Just a word of advice: Practice saying, “No thanks, not at this time.” I have found that once you start, more volunteer opportunities are presented to you and if you can’t say no, you can easily be busy seven days a week. Of course, if that’s what you want, you’ll have a blast! Angelika Lichtenfeld-Teed is a relatively new retiree who now calls Creston home.

Thursday, April 18, 2013 Creston Valley Advance

for a couple who had been busy, independent, involved and contributing members of their community. Their days become long, and conversations became centered around, “What would you like for dinner?” Home care was a big help and Ruth’s husband was well cared for. Ruth found herself with time on her hands while her husband was receiving care in their home, but she just didn’t know what to do. She knew she needed respite, some time away from the house, but she didn’t know where to go. Sometimes she sat in her car and read. Sometimes she went to the library but, as Ruth said, “I was spending too much time alone.” One day, Ruth was having lunch at the United Church and met the gang from TAPS there. They invited her to come and see what happened at TAPS and she did. Ruth began coming to TAPS for lunch, a meal she did not have to prepare, on the days when her husband received in-home care. At first, she knew only a few people but felt welcome. She became comfortable, found old friends and made new ones. As time went on, her husband passed away. She was sad and lonely but found that others at TAPS knew how she felt; they had experienced the same loss. Decisions needed to be made as things changed in Ruth’s life. These were not easy decisions, but some were made easier because of the social contacts Ruth had made. She knew that a number of her TAPS friends were renting in the same building. It offers meals and support services, so she checked it out and now lives there too. These women are not only socially active together, they are a strong support system for each other. They know each other’s family members, medical needs and routines. Ruth drives her own car to TAPS except in the winter when she jumps on the TAPS bus. She wants others to know that the bus is available to everyone. If you have a mobility, hearing or other health concern, TAPS can accommodate you. Ruth must use oxygen but this is not a problem at TAPS. She participates in Tai Chi when she feels able, helps with preparing pie fillings, attends the craft sales and Creston Lions Club breakfasts. She continues to contribute to her community. She is a welcoming smile to new persons at TAPS, she assists her friends when they need her and she promotes TAPS whenever she can. Thank you, Ruth, for sharing your story. We are lucky to have you at TAPS. If you think you might like to give TAPS a try, just call Bridget at 250-428-5585 and make arrangements to come for lunch. Terry Nowak is an outreach worker with the Therapeutic Activation Program for Seniors.

Edible landscaping

(NC)—Not only does growing your own produce allow you to save on fresh, organic produce, but edible plants grow in a variety of shapes, colours and textures enabling you to cultivate a landscape that is as unique as you are. Lowe’s Seasonal Plants Expert Karey O’Halloran provides quick tips on selecting and growing the right edible plants for your garden. • Most (but not all) vegetable and fruit plants require full sunlight- at least 4-6 hours/day • Full sun vegetables and fruits that grow on the vine generally produce the most colour. Consider an assortment of bell peppers, eggplant, Hot House Tomatoes, strawberries, and blueberries • Cool-season plants such as cabbage, kale, spinach, broccoli, cauliflower, peas, and beans are versatile and can tolerate some shade • Vegetables and fruits will not grow in full shade • Salad greens make for great edging plants as they are lush in colour and foliage. • For small spaces- window boxes, hanging baskets, potted plants, and raised garden beds are versatile and can allow for great growing. • Need shade? Consider planting a fruit tree in your yard. Apple, peach, pear, or apricot varieties are all great choices for Canadian climate and produce beautiful flowers. Keep in mind that falling fruit can be messy, and could attract unwanted guests, especially bears. • To control pests, plant garlic bulbs sporadically throughout your garden. This will help ward off spiders, flies, and slugs. • If you love flowers, consider growing edible varieties such as pansies, borage, or even squash.

Create a family hub

(NC)—When renovating a home, people often forget one of the most important components: the outdoor space. If done right, your yard can become more than an extension of your home - it can be a private escape. The experts at Home Depot Canada recommend the following tips for creating an outdoor retreat. Be your own weather specialist It is important to keep the climate in mind when choosing your outdoor furniture. For example, if you live in a windy area, select heavier furniture as lighter plastic chairs are likely to turn up on your neighbour’s lawn. If you experience heavy, regular rainfall, try to stay away from materials like wrought iron that may

rust. And to lengthen the life of your outdoor pieces, make sure to store your patio furniture when weather isn’t in your favour. Many outdoor cushions and pillows at Home Depot feature vibrant, fade-resistant colours and are made using high-quality, weather-resistant materials. Set the mood Like any room in your house, lighting is key when it comes to the outdoors. Solar powered lights are a great option and help save on energy bills. Installation is easy as there is no wiring or plugs to worry about. With many sizes and styles to choose from, you are sure to find the perfect one to brighten up your outdoor space. Create a space with a purpose Do you want to use your space to host parties, relax, or give your children somewhere they can play? How you plan on using the space will determine what type of furniture you need. And with outdoor furniture, you can get creative: chairs can be replaced with recliners, swings, loungers, or even hammocks.

Decorative accents are also essential. Throw a few colourful pillows on your outdoor furniture or put an outdoor area rug under your patio set. As long as fashion meets function, anything goes. With the right tools and tips, setting up a fun and functional outdoor space doesn’t need to be an overwhelming project. More information is available online at where you can view the patio buying guide and inspiration gallery.

FOOTLIGHTERS THEATRE SOCIETY Auditions will be held at the Snoring Sasquatch at 7 p.m. April 22 for Headed South from the Great White North, which will kick off Footlighters Theatre Society’s 19th season in July. Directed by Jason Smith, with Gil Wells assisting, this comedy follows in the footsteps of a long string of summer melodramas presented by the group. “Melodramas have always been popular with local audiences,” said Smith. “The stock characters — hero, heroine, villain, villainess — are so much fun to watch. Plus, as usual, we will enhance the script with a dose of modern comedy and a bit of satire.” Headed South from the Great White North is set in early 1900s Ontario, where the lovely but debt-ridden Barbara Seville is about to lose her hotel to the sly and conniving Lynden Renege. Things are further complicated by the theft of the stagecoach and the

arrival of a troop of man-crazy quilters. Other characters include Asa Hearts, an overgrown Boy Scout, and Pearl Unyon, a French Canadian lady lumberjack. “The characters’ names are a dead giveaway that this show is pure, simple fun,” said Smith. “It’s a great opportunity for someone who wants to try out acting for the first time.” Headed South from the Great White North has nine male and 11 female roles. Auditions for the roles will be by cold readings from the script. For more information, contact Jason Smith at 250-428-9553 or Gil Wells at 250428-4300.

Velle and Aaron Weitman of the Velle Weitman Trio performing at the Creston Valley Blossom Festival opening last year. Brian Lawrence

Have you been thinking about different ways of schooling for your children?

Weitman Trio recording live CD at Sasquatch SUBMITTED After three years together, the Velle Weitman Trio will be performing and recording live at the Snoring Sasquatch on April 27. In 2010, while living in the Creston Valley, three enormously talented musicians recognized the incredible skill and passion for music within one another and decided to start preforming together. United by the struggles they face balancing family, teaching music and maintaining the skills developed in their earlier careers, they began creating an eclectic repertoire consisting of a range of genres including folk, rock and smoky jazz, with a smattering of old time fiddle. The trio consists of Velle Weitman (violin, vocals), Julie Matthews (piano, vocals) and Aaron Weitman (upright bass, vocals). Velle is a veteran performer and her demeanor conveys her desire and enthusiasm to be on the stage. She runs a Suzuki violin program called Velvet Strings and claims that it allowed her to keep her chops, as she puts it. She has performed all over Canada, the U.S. and the U.K., and has played in bands such as the Jeremy Walsh Band, Honeygirl, the Dragonflies, and Barleywik, and has shared the

stage with such artists as Harry Manx, the Duhks and the Bills. Velle has also shared the stage many times with her siblings, Daniel Huscroft and Zav RT, and is strongly affiliated with the artists of Dog My Cat Records. Playing piano by ear at a young age, Matthews has always immersed herself in music, exploring all different styles and genres. She has a great mastery of the piano but also teaches several other instruments and composition from her busy home studio. She has recorded on a dozen albums on various instruments. “I love music that makes me feel alive,” said Matthews, who has a contagious passion for music, which is immediately apparent to any who meet her or watch her perform. Influenced by funk and blues, Aaron began playing bass as a 12-year-old in his hometown of Kitimat. When he made the move to Victoria, Aaron started playing in ska bands and was recruited to play with the Bloodwarmers, who recorded one album and toured the West Coast, and opened for the Skatellites, Easy Big Fella and Mad Bombers Society. Tickets for the live recording and concert are $10 in advance at Black Bear Books ad Kingfisher Used Books, and $12 at the door, which opens at 7 p.m.; the show begins at 8.

Workshop focusing on scaling up food production


This year, the College of the Rockies launched the Food in the Valley workshop series — a fresh opportunity to gather and learn about our food system from a dynamic Creston Valley perspective. Once a season, we look at a food issue through a “think global, act local” lens. Each session focuses on a specific topic, examining it from a global perspective and preparing to act on it in our community. In January, more than 40 people came together to hear Kootenay farmer Patrick Steiner share seed saving techniques and thoughts on the importance of protecting community access to seed. On April 29 (7-9 p.m.), the

series continues with the spring session, “Scaling Up: More Food in our Valley.” The workshop will bring accomplished organic agriculturalist and advocate Colleen Ross to the valley to offer her perspective on how scaled up production on small farms can help farming families to make a living and grow our supply of healthful foods. Ross is new to the Kootenays, but a veteran farmer and food systems builder. She has been farming for more than 30 years, first in Australia and for the past 15 years in Canada. Her family farm is a successful model of biodiversity, sustainable organic production and profitability. Ross has traveled extensively, learning from other farmers and speaking

about the global farm income and food crisis. Ross’s Creston workshop will be highly interactive. She will draw on her wealth of experience to answer our questions on the practical steps can be taken to grow our local food supply and revitalize our attitudes and approaches to growing food. Anyone with an interest in sustainability, food security, gardening, organics or even community building should think about taking part in “Scaling Up: More Food in our Valley.” The workshop will be an opportunity to meet others who share a passion for a sustainable food future. To register for the workshop, visit the College of the Rockies, email creston@cotr. or call 250-428-5332.

World-renowned cellist coming to Creston SUBMITTED

World-renowned cellist Michael Kevin Jones is performing at St. Stephen’s Presbyterian Church on April 28 at 2:30 p.m. The British-born cellist started to play at the age of 13. He studied at Dartington College with Michael Evans before going on to the Royal College of Music. During his time in London, Jones won prizes for solo and chamber music playing, was chosen to perform for the British Royal Family and was awarded a scholarship from the

German government to study cello under the great teacher Johannes Goritzki in Dusseldorf. While a student in Germany, he became solo cellist for the German Chamber Academy, playing concerts around the world and in major music festivals such as Salzburg, Lockenhaus and Kuhmo. Jones continued to study music full-time, participating in the solo master class courses at the Hindemith Foundation in Switzerland, and studying chamber music with the Amadeus, Vermeer and La Salle quartets. Tours included China,

Europe, the Americas, Australia and the Middle East, as well as recordings with WDR and BBC, and collaborations with well-known artists and groups such as the Moscow Virtuosi, Lindsay Kemp and Carlos Cano. In 2002, he recorded the complete Bach suites for solo cello on a 1667 Stradivarius violoncello for the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. Jones made his debut concert tour of Japan and the Far East in 2007 with his cello-guitar duo, the Jones Maruri Duo, the only duo of its kind in the world. Resulting from the tour, the duo was invited to perform in China during the Olympics in 2008. In 2009, Jones was awarded the Blue Moon Swiss Audio Award for his recording of solo Bach and in 2012 was invited to participate in the BachFest in South America. Concert engagements for 2013 include solo Bach tours of England, the United States and Canada, as well as cello guitar duo performances in New York, Miami and Hong Kong. Jones has lived in London, Cologne, Madrid and New York. He currently spends his free time in the Andalucian town of Jimena de la Frontera where he has started a cello education centre that serves the Costa del Sol area in southern Spain and Gibraltar. This concert is supported by the Community Arts Council of Creston. Admission is by donation, and refreshments will be provided.

Need help ďƒžnding ppieces of the puzzle?

Anna Widzyk (nee Borgosz) July 5, 1923 ~ April 14, 2013

With much love and great sadness we announce the passing of our mother on April 1, 2013 at her Swan Valley Lodge residence, with her children by her side. She will be missed by all who knew her indomitable spirit, her warm, loving friendship and her passion for life. Anna’s life was not easy, but she accepted its challenges with hard work and determination. Anna was born in Andrychow, Poland to Catherine and John Borgosz on July 5, 1923. She had to leave schoool at age 11 and went to work. When war came to Poland, she was 16 years of age. She married her sweetheart Maks Widzyk so they could stay together when they were taken to Germany in to forced labour. Three children were born in a German labour camp. After the war, the family immigrated to Canada, Maks Ă€rst in 19, to work in a gold mining camp in Northern Ontario. Anna and the three children followed in January 199. Anna came to love Canada because as she said “In Canada, you could become whatever you wanted." In 1950, the family moved to Coleman, AB, where two more daughters were born. In 1957, they moved to the two acre farm in Creston that has been Anna’s home ever since. She loved the place and put down deep roots. She was employed in the housekeeping department of the Creston Valley Hospital for 25 years, where she was well liked and respected. She was predeceased by her husband Maks in 197. Anna will be dearly missed by her Ă€ve children, (rwin, .as Camille , (rika Greg , Sophia and )lorence (Doug); three grandchildren, Stephanie, Jeffrey and Guy Michel, and three great-grandchildren. Deepest thanks from all the family to Dr. LeRoux, the caring staff of the Swan Valley Lodge Harris Unit, Swan Valley Adult Day Care, Creston Valley Hospital and to the volunteers of the lunch program at the United Church. Also a huge thank you to )rankie and Benny for their help over the years. A private family interment of ashes to take place at Forest Lawn Cemetery, Erickson, BC at a later date.


Friends wishing to make a memorial contribution in Anna’s name may do so to Swan Valley Lodge – Equipment Program PO Box 1880, Creston, BC, V0B 1G0.

• A group sale is better then selling alone. More stuff draws more traffic. • Label things well. • Be ready to go the night before so that you don’t have to rush around in the morning. • Price things carefully. Surprisingly, you can often make more money (and get rid of more junk) by pricing things low. • Keep a ledger. Jot down a description of each item and how much you sold it for.

• Do not use a cash box. Keep your money on you at all times. • Advertise. Place an ad in the newspaper. Post simple, effective signs around the neighbourhood. • Get cash - lots of quarters loonies, toonies and $5 bills. Do this two days before the sale, so that if you forget, you can still get the change on the day before. • Prepare your staging area. Make your sale inviting and easy to browse.Walk through your sale as if you were there to buy something. How does it feel? Are things clearly marked? Is it easy to move around? Are your books on the ground in boxes? Or are they placed neatly on shelves or tables? Would you pay $10 for that porcelain cat? • You can lure customers by placing highly-desirable items near the road. • Play background music. It can be a little uncomfortable to visit a garage sale (or to host one) when there’s complete silence in the yard or driveway. But don’t play offensive music either — play something appropriate for your audience. • Make it easy for shoppers to test electronic items. Make sure you have an extension cord handy so that people can test them.

Red Jade students earn 15 medals at competition BY CHRIS BRAUER

I should have realized, even before opening the heavy glass door and walking down the concrete steps towards the gymnasium foyer, that it wouldn’t be a scene of relative calm. I should have realized, even though the campus of Capilano University was serene with the warm wind ruffling the leaves on the oaks and cedars, that there would be such a jarring juxtaposition. But there was. Nervous parents were dragging their nervous children to weigh in, register in the right divisions, buy the T-shirt and, naturally, they had to vocalize their worries and opinions every step of the way in rapid clatter. All we could do was enter the milieu of semi-organized chaos at the Tiger Balm Internationals, which ran March 16 and 17, and make our way through the motions that every other parent was going through — weighing in, and then frantically filling out entry forms on any flat surface we could find (before buying the T-shirt). Then we entered the cavernous gymnasium, where the smell of fear and testosterone permeated the stale air. Competitors and coaches headed to the floor and parents — weighed down with water bottles, bags and bins — headed to the stands to set up temporary encampments. Initially, I had followed my wife

into the stands but it was soon evident the students of Red Jade Martial Arts could use an extra pair of hands on the floor. As the announcements over the public address system blared in a muffled language vaguely resembling English, I decided that I should cover my yellow wristband with my coat jacket and “illegally” cross over the ropes. As I wove around the various sparring rings, where four-year-old girls were bowing in front of judges before performing their forms and 13-year-old boys were strapping on padding before point and continuous sparring matches, I tried to keep my ears tuned as to when and where things were happening. With the cuffs of my coat pulled down, I had to act as the pivotal point for all the action, reminding students to eat and drink to keep up their energy, to strap on their protective cups even though they were uncomfortable, and then I had to pick through the pile of coloured padding and remember where mouth guards had been tucked in when the different divisions were called. I also quickly became the dropping point for all the medals as they were awarded, tucking them in my inside coat pocket. My coat soon got really heavy. It could have easily been a pandemonium of emotions for the students of Red Jade. They could have easily been nervously pacing

or bouncing up and down like kangaroo boxers, but they weren’t. They calmly watched and observed and then, when their names were called, they fought with unusual calm under pressure. Under the tutelage of sifu Neil Ripski, the students have been taught how to overcome fear, conserve energy and be ready at all times to do what needs to be done (without the use of hyperventilating). And so, quietly and calmly, one after the other, they all entered their respective rings and emerged victorious. Of course, the downfall to winning is that they had to continue to fight. Many of

the teens had to switch between continuous sparring and weapons sparring, stripping one set of pads for another, while a fresh opponent patiently waited. By the end of the day, the seven competitors — Austin Agabob, Nicholas Brauer, Adam Ebelher, Lorna Foot, David Huscroft and Clyde Robson — sported 15 medals to add to the Red Jade collection. But the students don’t travel to Vancouver every year for the medals or accolades. While the annual trip does centre on the competition, the students also journey to the coast for the cultural experience. Since their training

also focuses on the philosophy surrounding Kung Fu, they all look forward to the aspects of Chinese culture available. The students were able to attend a class in wushu, drink 80-year-old tea from a 200-yearold teapot with Daniel Lui at his Chinese Tea Shop, and privately tour the Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. Not to mention the food. We consumed a lot of Chinese food over the weekend. In fact, by the end of the trip, it was suggested the motto for Red Jade be, “Powered by pork buns.” As the group of nearly 20 of us gathered (invaded) various shops, schools and gardens, we jostled and joked as a family unit. We were not just students, parents and sifu, but a close-knit family unit, and it is this sense of family that is so important at Red Jade. It is one of the reasons so many full-time students fly from around the globe to train in Creston. As the students of Red Jade settle into their regular routines back home, preparations are now being made for the first annual Deep Water Convention in June. Hosted by Red Jade, it will focus not just on competition but also on learning and discussion. Workshops, vendors, and a panel discussion will offer residents and visitors to Creston a weekend full of opportunities. And hopefully, I can be allowed on the floor without having to wear my coat.

Frank Zappa tribute band playing at Sasquatch SUBMITTED


Micah Snow will play in Creston next week.

It has been said that it takes a special type of mental unbalance to truly understand the music of Frank Zappa. If that’s true, it must take an even more special brand of insanity to undertake the task of a Zappa tribute, but that’s exactly what the boys from Camel Toast Electric have done. Comprised of Selkirk College alumni James “Toast” Jost (guitar, vocals), Andrew “Trex” McBain (drums), Micah Snow (guitar, vocals), Kevin Welch (guitar, vocals), Spencer Daley (bass), and Adrien Lapierre (synth guitar), these boys have been trained to bring the best of their ability and more to the table, and they will be performing at the Snoring Sasqautch on April 25. Zappa was more of a composer than a songwriter and the boys handle the complexity of his music in a way that would put a big grin on old

Frank’s face — and we don’t mean Sinatra. This show marks the return of Creston native, Prince Charles Secondary School graduate and alumni of Rick and Jan Potyok’s House of Rock Micah Snow to the hometown stage. After honing his craft in Selkirk’s contemporary music and technology program he and the band are inviting everybody down for a night of great music and some fabulous playing. You can find Camel Toast Electric wherever the music is slamming, bringing their own take on the underappreciated masterworks of Frank Zappa to fresh audiences. Kicking off the night is Cosmic Palace, a four-piece psychedelic rock extravaganza formed in Nelson. The project started as a conjoined musical love between Louis Butterfield (vocals), Brandon Melanson (guitar), Andrew MacBain (drums) and Quillan Hanley (bass).

They are inspired by the rock ’n’ roll gods of past and present, such as Queen and the Mars Volta. Cosmic Palace uses strong guitar riffs laced with powerful vocals and intricate rhythms to form a sound that is both awe-inspiring and stimulating. With an array of guitar pedals, slap bass and vocal effects, the band consistently delivers a fun, over-the-top, in-the-pocket, excellent rock ’n’ roll show with spectacular stage presence. They all are graduates of Selkirk College’s contemporary music and technology program, and are now touring across B.C. From the first note of the evening to the last chord of the night it is going to a rich exciting night of great music. It’s something you just gotta experience for yourself. Tickets are $10 in advance at Black Bear Books and Kingfisher Used Books, and $13 at the door, which opens at 7 p.m.; the show begins at 8.
