Residents and tourists visiting downtown will soon be able to take advantage of free wireless Internet. The Rotary Club of Grand Forks has spearheaded a free Wi-Fi (wireless fidelity, a technology that allows an electronic device to exchange data wirelessly) project with the City of Grand Forks and School District 51. Up to four Internet access points will be installed throughout the downtown core, which will allow people to freely access a wireless network connection on their cellular phone, laptop or computer. “It benefits the community and we see that there is a potential for commuters and tourists to come through and identify that it’s a Wi-Fi zone and come in and use the facilities within Grand Forks,” said Wayne Christensen, Rotary’s director of community services.

The City of Grand Forks and SD51 already have a fibre optic cable running through a majority of the city. “It connects all the city buildings and so, with this cabling already there, it’s not a big issue to then purchase wireless points and connecting them along our fiber optics, which is on telephone poles or power poles, and then making free wireless available,” said Michael Strukoff, SD51 superintendent of schools. Rotary has covered the cost of the technology for the four access points, said Diane Heinrich, the city’s corporate officer. “We have to determine with our (technicians) where these are going to work as far as covering the (largest) radius because the intent is providing the downtown sector with Wi-Fi capability,” she said. Christensen said the strength of the signal would lie along Market Avenue as it has the highest concentration of businesses. “The initial projection is we were hoping it

would get from Fifth Street to Second Street including the Overwaitea parking lot but the cost value with that (was not feasible),” said the local Rotary director of community services, but he said that more access points could be added further down the road. “We are shooting (to have free Internet) for the July 1 weekend so that we can garner some of that (tourism) traffic that comes through.” Internet access signs would also be situated at either end of the city to show that Grand Forks has a designated free Wi-Fi zone, added Christensen. Heinrich believes that it will open up more opportunities for people to come downtown. “People are going to be able to access information, the tourism traffic would be able to pick up on that and use it downtown,” she said. “There is going to be more of a draw for the downtown core to encourage people to come down and use it and I’m sure that they will be patronizing businesses at the same time.”

THE PAST z THE WAY IT WAS

Hundreds of residents celebrate opening of new Credit Union building, 1983 1908 Representing a rich American syndicate, a party of veteran mining men were to start overland from Ashcroft for the Findlay River goldfields in northern B.C. Among members scheduled to make the trip were A.D. McPhee and Walter Ross of Grand Forks. 1913 News was received from Victoria that construction would commence immediately on a much-needed telephone line from Grand Forks to Lynch Creek. 1918 Roy M. McLeod, formerly with McLeod & Hodgson, left for Victoria where he intended to enlist with the artillery. 1923 Word was received from Victoria that four Grand Forks girls, Frances Padgett, Isabelle Glaspell, Ruth Reid and Gladys McLaughlin, have been successful in their Normal School examinations and have graduated as teachers. 1928 A.D. Morrison disposed of his ranch property east of town, to the Doukhobor community. 1933 The B.C. Supreme Court appointed Judge J.R. Brown as third arbitrator in the dispute between W.I. Glanville and the City of Grand Forks with reference to flooded lands in which the former has asked for damages of $30,000. 1938 Dorothy Liddicoat of Grand Forks placed fourth in a class of 15 Okanagan Music Festival contestants and performed for the first time on radio from

and Mrs. William Starchuk of Grand Forks, received two first-place awards at the 50th anniversary of the Kiwanis Music Festival in Vancouver. 1978 A pioneer resident of Midway, Carl Ludwig Thomet, passed away at Trail Regional Hospital, April 22, at the age of 72. 1983 Hundreds of people turned out for the grand opening of the new credit union building. 1988 An ecstatic Kolina Malloff, Miss Leippi Jewellers, was crowned the 36th Miss Grand Forks. 1993 This year’s flooding of the Kettle and Granby rivers stranded some people in their homes for a day and caused property damage despite levels below the record high of 1983. 1998 Workers strike a new deal with the City of Grand Forks for three years, with wage hikes of 1.5, 1 and 2 per cent in each of the years of the contract. 2003 The only thing left of the small, 50-year-old United Church at Christina Lake are some charred remains; however, it was no accident. It was intentionally started by the fire department, and used as a practice drill, after it was determined the building was beyond repair. 2008 Merit Mining held an official opening of the Greenwood mill and LexingtonGrenoble gold-copper mine, May 14.

Lobo

Hello, my name is Lobo, I am a 3-year-old miniature donkey. I live on a farm with lots of other animals and I really don’t like any of them. Every day should be all about me! I can do lots of tricks, which is easy for me and I get lots of cookies. I am not stubborn, I prefer to think of it as selfpreserving. My favourite thing to do is pull a jacket off of the fence, stomp, roll, and leave a pile on it! It gets a great reaction from the humans!! – Lorraine O’Connor

NEWS

Lightning strike According to Fire Chief Ken Gresley-Jones, members of the Christina Lake fire department responded to reports of lightning strikes in the early-morning hours of May 14. There was subsequent heavy rain afterwards and nothing was observed in the darkness. Later in the day, the B.C. Wildfire Management Branch responded to a spot fire high above Fife at Christina Lake. It was quite a hike but crews were able to contain the fire at its origin. Here, a member of the forest service crew stands by a tree that was struck by lightning in the Christina Lake area.

Traffic change The City of Grand Forks has made some changes to the traffic patterns in the area of 72nd Avenue and Eighth Street with the installation of a new island and a yield sign amongst the additions. “The city has observed that traffic flows after the new island was installed indicate improved safety with better sight lines,” it said in a release.

Association aims for vibrant downtown core in Grand Forks

SASCHA PORTEOUS Gazette Reporter

The newly formed Downtown Business Association’s vision is a vibrant, economically viable downtown that celebrates history, artistic and cultural communities. The association’s chair, Carol Lajoie, told the Gazette that there have been failed attempts in the past to create collaboration between downtown businesses. “A few of us got motivated to say we really need to have a better downtown, we need it to look better down here, we need it to be a more cohesive group of businesses working together and that was sort of what got us motivated to get us going and get something happening,” said Lajoie. In December 2012, the Grand Forks Downtown Business Association was officially formed with seven acting board of directors. “There are approximately 130 business that are in the downtown core that we have approached,” she said. “We are including everybody that is somewhat in our geographical area, 80 per cent of the business we have approached have been positive and excited about this organization.” Vice-chair Dave Bachmier said the association would be a collective voice for Grand Forks businesses. “We need an association because one business, one person, can’t do it alone but a group with one

voice, we can move mountains,” he said. Lajoie said the struggles over the years stem from the need and want to have various events downtown, from Midnight Madness to Moonlight Madness and the Santa Claus parade in December. “We really felt there needed to be a group responsible to make those events happen and try to bring those events up to a higher level so they are bigger events, more exciting for the town and ultimately something we can maybe promote to tourists,” said the chair of the association. The board of directors has put together an events schedule, one of which was the community yard sale that happened this past weekend. Lajoie says another issue that the association is working on is an enhancement and revitalization of the downtown. “There is a desperate need to update our town and have it look fresh, fun and excited ... we can’t leave that up to the city to make that happen, they will certainly do their part to make it happen but the businesses have to take ownership for their own buildings and come up with a plan as to how we want the downtown to look,” she said. By creating a more fresh and vibrant atmosphere, a spinoff of that would be that it could encourage more business to open up shop in town. “There will be more incentive for people that want to look at opening new business and bringing business here,” added Lajoie.

The SD51 board at its May 14 meeting

School District 51’s (SD51) 2013/2014 annual budget was an item of discussion at its May 14 meeting; however, the board of trustees did not approve a third and final reading of the budget. Jeanette Hanlon, SD51 secretary-treasurer, has balanced the proposed budget by making reductions to teaching staff and one support staff, as well as using monies from the district’s unrestricted surplus. The third reading of the budget must be passed before June 30. ERASE bullying update Jennifer Turner, SD51’s safe schools co-ordinator, gave an update on the ERASE bullying initiative and the Student Violent Threat and Risk Protocol. Last year the province outlined a reporting tool, called ERASE, which has now been added to every school’s website across the district. The bullying reporting tool is a way for kids to reach out and get help. “We had students not only access the tool but also left their name and used it as an appropriate call for help,” said Turner. As the district’s safe school co-ordinator, she was also involved in drafting a Student Violent Threat and Risk Protocol with School Districts 10, 20, 8 and 51 (West Kootenay partners). A draft of the protocol has been completed and Turner said next year’s job would be working with the partners to have a signed protocol across the West Kootenays. Healthy schools Heather Shilton from Interior Health gave a presentation at the SD51 school board meeting on the Healthier Schools and Healthier Students Initiative. Interior Health will provide another two years of funding to School District 51 to re-hire a Health Promoting Schools co-ordinator. See page 7 for story. MDI extended for additional two years The Middle Years Development Instrument is a survey that has been conducted by Grade 4 students throughout the Boundary for the past two years and will now continue for an additional two years. The board of directors approved the enrollment of SD51 in the MDI program, which looks at social and emotional development, physical health and well being, connectedness to adults and peers, school experiences, and use of after-school time. Participation costs for the district are $7,000. See page 9 for story.

Wear a helmet

People driving by the lot across from the street from the soon-to-be-demolished Winnipeg Hotel needn’t be worried by the mass of black leather and Harley Davidsons on Saturday. It isn’t a gathering of some unruly biker gang, it is the motorcycle show and shine event that promotes motorcycle safety, as May is Motorcycle Awareness Month. It’s rare to see a motorcyclist or biker not wearing a helmet of some sort around town and the majority of bicycle riders are responsible enough to wear helmets but there are still some riding around with their heads exposed. Much like a seatbelt, some may feel that putting on a helmet (a certified, approved helmet) may be cumbersome or an annoyance but it can save someone’s life. After all, trauma to the head can cause permanent damage and even a plastic shell around your head can help absorb pressure if you should hit your head. According to the Canada Safety Council, a helmet can prevent up to 88 per cent of serious head injuries that occur from crashes and trafficsafety. org says close to 70 per cent of fatal bicycle crashes involve head injuries. With those types of numbers, it is unfathomable that people would choose not to wear a helmet when riding their bikes; nevertheless, trafficsafety. org points to only 20 to 25 per cent of bicyclists wearing helmets. And much like the seatbelt, the reasons are numerous for not wearing a helmet. Cost, not liking the way wearing a helmet looks and comfort are reasons that some cite as why they don’t wear helmets, but when you consider the consequences, how can one not wear a bike helmet? Injuries can include slurred speech and headaches as well as death. Besides preventing injury, another reason to wear a helmet while riding a bicycle or motorcycle is it’s the law. According to the B.C. Motor Vehicle Act, the helmet must be “designated as an approved bicycle safety helmet …” Parents or guardians of people under 16 must ensure that they are wearing helmets as well. People may complain about wearing a bicycle helmet and not like it but wearing one could save your life.

Weekly online poll

from www.grandforksgazette.ca

Did you vote in the 2013 B.C. election?

YES 87%

Just over half of British Columbians voted in last week’s provincial election. Data from Elections BC shows that only 52 per cent of eligible voters cast their ballots on May 14. Despite the voter apathy, what’s even more shocking is the fact that a majority government was elected by less than 25 per cent of B.C. voters. Although 87 per cent voted according to the Gazette’s weekly poll. Voting isn’t mandatory, it’s a choice, but it’s also a privilege and a responsibility. Sure, there are plenty of reasons why people don’t vote: too busy, ill, not interested, don’t like options, out of town, registration problems, no transportation, weather and the list goes on. Whatever the reason may be, there comes a point were we need to re-evaluate voter turnout and voter apathy. Maybe it’s time to make voting mandatory, as it is in

z Porteous Profiles

31 countries, although only 12 countries enforce it. A model of reference is Australia, where voting is compulsory for anyone 18 years and older, according to the Australian Electoral Commission website. In the land down under, if you don’t vote and do not have a valid or sufficient reason then a $20 penalty is imposed. If that penalty is not paid within 21 days then prosecution proceedings may be instigated. In Singapore, where voting is also compulsory for all eligible citizens, any non-voter will be removed from the certi-

fied register of electors, which means that one cannot vote at any subsequent presidential or parliamentary election. In Peru, proof of electoral participation is required to obtain certain public services, and in Argentina, offenders cannot work in public service for three years following an abstention. If voting were to become compulsory in Canada, then I would dare say it would drive up voter turnout, but it might also shift Canadians’ perspective. Voting is a right, but it is also a responsibility and half of British Columbians seemed to have lost sight of that. There is a strong argument that the dismal turnout on voting day is because the younger generation of voters is not engaged and simply doesn’t care. Maybe the way to get people engaged in voting is to simply make it mandatory.

LETTERS z RECREATION

History is repeating Editor: Coincident with the November 2011 municipal elections, the voters of Grand Forks and Area D were asked to approve a project to expand the aquatic centre to accommodate a stateof-the-art exercise facility. The voters said no. In January 2013, there was a flyer entitled “Facility Expansion Back On The Table” sitting on the front counter of the aquatic centre. The chair of the Grand Forks and District Recreation Commission Gene Robert (formerly a city councillor) invited public feedback on the proposed 3,000 square-foot expansion of the fitness and wellness space. On the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) website, under the April 2013 board agenda, can be found the minutes of the April 11 Grand Forks and District Recreation Commission, in which it indicates the expansion of the aquatic centre to accommodate the exercise facility is a viable project and they will pursue the project. Minutes of Grand Forks city council meeting of April 15, under information item (c), has a motion approved by city council supporting the RDKB Bylaw 1524 to increase the annual requisition amount for the Grand Forks and District Aquatic Centre from $500,000 to $625,000. Note this 25 per cent increase in funding requirement is only for the operation and maintenance of the aquatic centre as it currently exists. On May 10, I attended a council meeting and inquired why the recreation commis-

sion is pursuing the project to expand the aquatic centre when the voters of Grand Forks and Area D had already said no to that project. Mayor Taylor, a member of the recreation commission, replied the project is part of the healthy living initiative, there will be public consultation and there may or may not be another referendum allowing the voters another say on the issue. I don’t know about you folks, but this reminds me very much of the Alternate Approval Process on funding of the RINC Trail project that voters denied (2010) and council proceeded with the project despite the wishes of the people. Here we go, again! Sylvia Treptow, Grand Forks

Pieces that are problems Editor: Re: Should we change for the sake of change? (opinion piece, May 8 issue) and China’s largest bank helping to finance Kitimat Clean refinery (story, April 24 issue) The Gazette has recently printed some worrying pieces. The most recent, an op/ed piece by Gwyn Morgan, in my opinion is an example of how the Liberals and their corporate supporters want to get shortterm gain by plundering the resources of this wonderful province. A truly vibrant economy must be based on careful longterm stewardship of resources and on caring for all people in the province. The Liberals have reportedly demonstrated

z OPINION

neither of these. Gwyn portrays himself as a retired businessman. Gwyn however was (is?) heavily involved with SNC Lavalin, which has made the news for allegations of bribery and other dishonest practices. Gwyn became rich by fracking in Alberta. Fracking poisons groundwater and is very destructive of the environment. Gwyn advises or has advised Prime Minister Harper and Christy Clark and now Clark reportedly wants to fill the provincial coffers with money derived from fracking. Fracking is causing serious environmental abuse in B.C. and LNG (liquefied natural gas) from fracking is not at all a clean fuel when one properly measures its carbon footprint. Both Clark and Morgan wrongly accused the NDP of increasing the B.C. debt burden. Careful examination of the numbers reveals that the Liberal government has increased the debt of every British Columbian by five times from $8,000 to $40,000 per person. This is an enormous debt load. There was also a piece regarding the building of a refinery in Kitimat. A Kitimat refinery still requires dirty, heavy oil to be delivered by pipeline across B.C.’s remote, fragile, intricate ecosystems and 800-plus stream/river crossings. Spills could happen and drainages of the Peace, Fraser and Skeena Rivers, amongst many others, are at risk of permanent pollution. The release claimed to have Chinese backing for this refinery. How can a person get financial backing for a refinery idea which can ruin so much of what belongs to the people of Canada? Jane Marshall, Midway

And the survey says ... A few months ago the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB), at my request, sent out surveys to all property owners at Christina Lake. GRACE McGREGOR Thank you to all who took the time to fill out the survey, either by email, online or mail. Before we discuss the results, let me give a little background. In the past few years, we had many community meetings for various reasons, including presenting the annual budget. It never fails that many people will make statements about a sewer system for Christina Lake and want to know why we have not taken that step. After many, many comments like, “If we had a sewer system we wouldn’t have a problem with the lake,” and “Christina Lake should have put a sewer system in years ago” and “All the old cabins on the lake are causing a problem. “If we had a community system everyone would have to hook up, especially on the south end of the lake.” Thus the following survey was sent out, including the results of a study completed 22 years ago, which cited the cost of a system for the core area of the south end and Lavalley Point to be in the order of $7 million (1992 estimate). The questions on the survey were as follows: Would you like the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary to commission a feasibility study to investigate the costs and benefits of establishing a community wastewater collection and treatment system for Christina Lake? The options were Yes, No and I need more information. If yes, for all of Christina Lake or just South End and Lavalley Point? Some were very helpful, others were extremely nasty and used this to vent frustration on everything from water districts to taxation. I note that there is still much confusion on taxation that goes to the province and regional district taxation, even though I had numerous meetings to clarify this, including a presentation on incorporation. I also clarify that the RDKB does not have anything to do with the water districts. Then it gave all ways to return the survey, including online, email, mail or fax. Of interest with the returns are the comments ranging from “Seriously think your priorities are out of sync” to “Why you are doing this work for a developer” to “This would cause higher density on Christina Lake.” Just to clarify, I am not doing any work for a developer, rather I am asking the question you keep asking me. It seems that the simplicity of the question was lost on some people. All I was asking is, “Are you interested in an updated feasibility study?” As to the density on the lake, our zoning prohibits further splitting of lots on the lakeshore. For further clarification, I am not saying I want to do a feasibility study, I was asking “you” the citizens if you want an updated one. This is part of asking the people of Christina Lake what their wishes are and keeping everyone in the loop. Also, just to note, the lake tests for water quality are very good and they are presented every year at the Christina Lake Stewardship annual review. So here are the results: Yes: 341, No: 432 and need more info: 98 Mailed out 1,869, Returned responses 865 Here is my final comment. I will continue to ask your feedback on matters, such as this, as I believe that some of you want that involvement. To those who were rude and impolite, shame on you! No wonder many good people won’t put their name on a ballot. To those who understood the simplicity of the survey, provided good constructive feedback and answered the questions, thank you so much. It is your contribution that is important to me. In the next few months we will see if any further surveys come back before we make a final decision. – Grace McGregor is Area C director for the RDKB

Health gets promoted in schools

SASCHA PORTEOUS Gazette Reporter

Students versed with the knowledge of healthy living are of significant benefit to the long-term health of the population, says Heather Shilton. Shilton, Health Promoting Schools co-ordinator for School District 51 (SD51) and a registered nurse with Interior Health, said that Interior Health is providing an additional two years of funding for school districts that are implementing healthy initiatives. Shilton has been working with SD51 for the past three years heightening the awareness around health. “She visited with school staff, talked with PACs (parent advisory councils), helped develop some policy, for example we have a walking policy,” said Michael Strukoff, superintendent of schools “We are reviewing our fundraising policy and the kinds of foods that we provide in our schools, we’ve implemented better food options inside our schools . . . we are also looking at ways to support emotional health and social health for kids. The district website has a Health Promoting Schools site for links and

other resources for teachers and parents ties,” she said. and kids to access if they want.” There are some basic fundamentals These health initiatives will continue that kids need to have, said Strukoff. as Interior Health has announced that it “If a child is not healthy, it is pretty will provide the district with $30,000 in hard for them to learn so if we are supsalary funds to re-hire a Health Promot- porting them with healthy initiatives, ing Schools cowhich include our ordinator. breakfast program “Interior for example, and by Health added looking after their a few condiwellness, they will be tions that are in a better position to reasonable in learn in the classroom my mind, for inand at home,” added stance, that we the superintendent of set some goals schools. across the disInterior Health is trict and in our the only health auschools about thority across the health initiaprovince that is protives,” said Struviding funding at no koff. cost to the school disShilton said tricts, said Shilton.

❚ AIRPORT

Fly-in takes off again

The Grand Forks Flying Association is hosting a fly-in on Aug. 25 at the city’s airport. Last year’s event drew hundreds of flying enthusiasts and attracted pilots to fly in from Calgary, Langley and everywhere in between, said Ann Gordon, president of the Grand Forks Flying Association. “The event went very, very well, it was an excellent turnout,” said Gordon. Most small communities have fly-ins to promote their airports and flying in general, but a fly-in is not to be confused with an air show, said Cher Wyers, member of the Grand Forks Flying Association. “With an air show, you need Transport Canada approval to conduct aerial performances and a fly-in is where we invite general aviation from around the province and outside the province to fly in to our community and experience our airport,” she said. “We have events that are happening at the airport at the ground level (as well).” There will be a pancake breakfast from 7 to 11 a.m., which is always popular with aviation pilots, added Wyers. Another attraction will be the model airplanes. “Everybody loves to see the skill these people have for flying model airplanes, it’s a good drawing card,” said Gordon. The flying association and its 12 members will be on hand to park and tie down the airplanes and to also meet and greet with the community. “The association is broad based, it’s not just for pilots, but for people interested in aviation,” said the club president. The fly-in will be an open house, free of charge, and for residents who don’t have transportation there will be a shuttle available from the airport to downtown. “It’s a very popular event, especially with the kids. They love to see airplanes flying,” said Gordon.

Gazette Editor

Editor’s note: Last week the Gazette ran a story entitled “Locals concerned about logging” about concerns about local grassroots group Friends and Residents of the North Fork regarding logging in the Lynch Creek North area. The group said the development and extension of Old Gladstone Road into a logging access road was amongst its concerns. We contacted BC Timber Sales (BCTS) for comment but it did not respond by press time last week. Here are responses to the questions from Vivian Thomas, communications manager from the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. Has the tendering process started for (a logging) road into the area? If not, when? The tender has not yet been advertised. BC Timber Sales is finalizing a tender for a contract to undertake minor road work on the existing Gladstone Forest Service Road to ensure environmentally sound and safe access. As soon as possible after timber harvesting is complete the road will be deactivated to a standard similar to the one in existence today. The minor nature of the road work and deacti-

vation plans were specifically put in place due to expressed concern over grizzly bears and other wildlife. Is the ministry and BCTS aware of concerns expressed by people in the area? BC Timber Sales is very aware of concerns expressed by public that have shown an interest in the Lynch Creek development; and has taken those concerns into account throughout the planning process and field operations. BCTS has kept lines of communications open over the past year, by participating in a Public Open House at the Brown Creek Hall, conducting a field tour of the area with members of the public. We continue to share and discuss our plans with people that wish to be involved. Does the ministry or BCTS have any other comments on this proposed logging? BC Timber Sales is obligated to meet the requirements of the Kootenay Boundary Land Use Plan and legislation that has been specifically designed to balance social, economic and environmental concerns. BCTS staff and their contractors are working with information they have at hand, and are apply their best professional judgement to ensure timber harvesting can occur in the Lynch Creek area without unduly affecting other forest values.

City of Grand Forks to hold well open house

Well No. 3 on 68th Avenue, east of 27th Street, the site z Local Submission

CITY OF GRAND FORKS

If your habits resemble those of an average Grand Forks resident, you use about 720 litres of water per day. That’s more than 3,000 cups of water every day and also about one-third more than the average British Columbian. Have you ever wondered where all that water comes from? With May 20 to 26 being Drinking Water Week across B.C., the City of Grand Forks is hosting an open house on Thursday at Well No. 3, located on 68th Avenue, just east of 27th Street. The city wants to help you save water and use it more efficiently. Join the city for a short tour, refreshments and find out where your water comes from. The open house is the first of many opportunities in the coming months for residents

to learn helpful tips and practical solutions to reducing water use and maintaining a healthy lawn and garden. “We cannot take tap water for granted as it is a finite resource that should be valued and protected. Please join us at our open house and learn where our water comes from,” says Coun. Cher Wyers, chair of the city’s environment committee. Currently, the City of Grand Forks pumps water to a reservoir located in the east end of Grand Forks. The electricity costs associated with pumping, as well as wear on the pumps, would be reduced if water demands could be reduced up to 25 per cent. “There are significant costs and energy required to deliver water to our taps and treat it to be safe and clean. Conserving water will reduce peak demands and help reduce the cost to maintain and operate the water system,” says Coun. Gary Smith, environment committee co-chair. There are a number of things people can do in the coming

weeks to learn more about water conservation, including how to use less at home and still maintain a healthy lawn and garden. • Get started by making a commitment to save water by taking the Drinking Water Challenge at www.drinkingwaterweek.org/challenge • Join us Thursday between noon and 3 p.m. at the well site for the open house (68th Avenue just before 27th Street.) • Come see us on June 18 at 7 p.m. at Dr. D.A. Perley Elementary for a public information session, sponsored by FortisBC, on how you can save water, energy and money all at the same time. • Watch your mailbox in June for a newsletter with more information and tips on how you can reduce your water consumption. Watch for more information at www.city.grandforks.bc.ca over the next few weeks.

Ab/ed students help design and complete mural, drum

KARL YU

Gazette Editor

Students at Grand Forks Secondary School (GFSS) painted an Aboriginal art mural and constructed a Gathering Drum with a blessing ceremony held last Wednesday. The mural is mounted in sections in the GFSS aboriginal education classroom and the process began last year, said School District 51 (SD51) Aboriginal education instructor Wanda Hecht. “Terry Jackson, who is a well-known Métis artist on the other side of Rock Creek, was invited to design a mural that would allow students to put their artwork on it as well,” Hecht explained. “Terry came up with the design, that was on paper, we showed it to the advisory and it seems like everybody was happy with the design.” Jackson said it was a long project that lasted about a year-and-a-half. “We decided to do something that would include the students; that they would be part of it. (I) laid down a base that would encompass all the traditional cultures together,” said Jackson. “Something with the different heritages the kids coming to this school have.” Jackson said different students would volunteer their time to come to the classroom to paint with GFSS Aboriginal enhancement worker Victoria Runge helping them out. Runge said that the number of students working on the mural increased as the project came along. “Last year, there was only two or three that had seen it,” said Runge. “They became inter-

ested so we spent every Tuesday at lunch working on the mural and this year as well. We had probably 10 or 12 students working on it at the end and even non-Aboriginal education students would join in.” With a majority of blue, with yellow and red highlights, there is space for more designs and images to be added on in the future. “I’m almost speechless,” said Boundary All Nations Aboriginal Council (BANAC) president Joan Holmes, who was the driving force behind the Gathering Drum. “When I walked in here and saw it on the wall, it was just beautiful. I think the mural was a coming together of Aboriginal students and recognizing that they do belong in the school and that there is something here to be proud of.” SD51 Superintendent Michael Strukoff said the mural, drum and Aboriginal education are an important component of the school district. “For our community, what surprised us, and surprised me personally, was to understand how many young people of Aboriginal descent we have. So when we’re running at 28 per cent of our student body having Aboriginal heritage and the fact that provincially, Aboriginal students have not been successful in school or not graduating, it’s been a really important push for us to be able to focus in on them and encourage and assist our kids to graduate; this program is part of it.” Strukoff said that last year, 93 per cent of the district’s Aboriginal students graduated, which he said far exceeded the provincial norms. “That’s why this program is important for us,” Strukoff said.

Brazilian students get small city experience

SASCHA PORTEOUS Gazette Reporter

The City of Grand Forks, Granby Wilderness Society, Kettle River Water Management Plan and the Grand Forks Environment Committee will get some assistance this summer thanks to two Brazilian intern students. Priscilla Novello and Valeria Flora Ramos are being hosted by the municipality to work on projects such as the assessment of riparian areas, water quality sampling and air quality control. Novello and Ramos are both environmental engineering students from Brazil, enrolled in the Science Without Borders scholarship program, of which a fourmonth internship is one of the requirements, along with studying for at least one semester at a Canadian university. Novello and Ramos are both studying at the University of Guelph, Ontario. The girls said that it was city CAO Doug Allin’s initiative to offer them a working opportunity in Grand Forks from May until August. Ramos said this will be her first on-thejob training and she believes it will be a valuable experience. “Before I worked just in laboratory, so now it’s my first job engineering in a company,” she said. “I think it will help me to find another job in Brazil and I think (my future employer) will think (it’s) very important because this is an international

job, it is very important for me.” For Novello, this is her fourth internship but her first experience working for a municipality. “With the municipality, we can see everything that is going on in the city, because even though the city is a small one, they have a lot of things we can explore,” she said as she refers to the scope of different jobs they are undertaking. Graham Watt, project co-ordinator of the Kettle River Watershed Management Plan, explained to the Gazette what those jobs would entail. “They will be working on the riparian threat assessment, which is the project of the Kettle River Watershed Management Plan and the Granby Wilderness Society,” he said. “They will be doing field work to assess streamside vegetation on the Kettle River.” They will also be sampling and analyzing the local water supply, working with the environment committee to look at the nephelometer and the air quality ratings, Watt said. He adds the students’ time in Grand Forks would be of great benefit to the region. “Their work will feed right away into policy decisions that may be undertaken by the city or the (Regional District of Kootenay Boundary’s) Area D official community plan. We will be using the data that they bring forward as part of a suite of other indicators for providing recom-

mendations on land use, on protection for streams and things like that that provides information for making good policy essentially.” Both interns said they have a lot of work to do to get up to speed. “We still need to study more about the vegetation, the plants and the soil,” said

Ramos. “Also the environmental laws, everything is different,” adds Novello. But both agree that the first barrier is the language. “The technical words keeps on complicating (things) more and more,” said Novello.

COMMUNITY z SPOTLIGHT FILMS

Say yes to watching “No”

On May 28, Spotlight Films will be showing the film No, by Chilean director Pablo Larrain. No is the culmination of Larrain’s trilogy about life under Chilean dictator Augusto PiLARRY nochet. The previous two films HUDEMA were Tony Manero and Post Mortem. In 1973, Salvador Allende was ousted as leader of Chile after a violent coup during which he committed suicide rather than succumb. Within a year Pinochet had become supreme leader of the military dictatorship and what followed was a reign of terror and violence, allegedly sanctioned by the U.S. In 1988, due to international pressure, Pinochet confidently called for a carefully calculated plebiscite to determine whether an eight-year extension of his brutal regime was valid. His chances of winning seemed infallible. The No campaign enlisted the help of politically apathetic adman Rene Saavedra (Gael Garcia Bernal of Motorcycle Diaries, Y Tu Mama Tambien), a shrewd, introspective and creative ad executive loosely-based on Eugenio Garcia. The opening scene has Saavedra previewing a new commercial for a beverage company, which is suddenly interrupted by opposition manager Jose Tomas Urrita (Luis Gnecco, a popular Chilean comedic actor). Saavedra’s agency has been commissioned by the Yes campaign to design ads for the Junta, with Saavedra’s boss Lucho Guzman (Alfredo Castro, Tony Manero, La fiera, a TV series in Chile) working for Pinochet. In conversations between Rene and

z Local Submission

Jose, craftily blended with a dinner scene between Rene and his boss, Luis, the stage is set and the worm of skepticism surrounding the legitimacy of Pinochet’s reign emerges. Rene’s journey home on a skateboard, complete with some artful audio/visual candy, amplifies Saavedra’s transformation. Highly sought after because of his creative and unorthodox approach to marketing concepts, it is no accident Rene’s methods of selling freedom come off like Coke commercials in the 30 minute TV ads shared with the Yes campaign. This intense historical drama, punctuated with dark humour and searing wit, was nominated Best Foreign Film at the recent Oscars and won the Art Cinema Award at Cannes. It ploughs the furrows of deep universal emotions, there is seldom a frame without passion and a yearning for liberty and change. Thanks to Internet Movie Database, Rotten Tomatoes and cinemainterruptus.wordpress.com. This film will be shown at 7:30 p.m. at the Gem Theatre. Spotlight Films would like to thank our sponsors, supporters and Maureen and Marius Paquet of the Gem theatre. “Adios Pinochet.”

A Grand Forks Secondary School (GFSS) student beat out 1,200 others from Canada and took top spot in the Write For A Better World contest. Avery Nordman’s story on Morocco was picked by children’s author Eric Walters from the Top 10 entries and she took home $500, an ereader, books signed by Walters and a world map and atlas amongst other things. “It was really cool. I was literally shaking when I got the news,” Nordman explained, when asked about winning the writing contest. “It was really exciting because I won something and I was pretty happy because the organization that the contest was based off of (World Literacy Canada) is a really good organization that helps women, children in places like India and Nepal.” Nordman visited Morocco back in 2010 and it was that experience which formed the basis of

her winning story. “What you were supposed to do for the contest is write about a place that was different from Canada but might have similarities. I wanted to write about somewhere I went because you can experience it more and it’s easier to write about if you’ve been there,” Nordman told the Gazette. “I picked Morocco because I really liked it when I was there. It was really interesting and so cool – it was way different than Canada,” she said. Nordman says she enjoys writing immensely and she said that English is amongst her favourite classes. “Last semester, I found out about the contest through my english teacher (Marina Brewer, who has since left GFSS),” Nordman said, adding that students worked on stories and could submit them if they wanted, which Nordman did. “It’s a great way to express yourself. You don’t have to talk, you just have to write,” she went on to say.

In order to promote motorcycle safety, RHC Insurance Brokers is sponsoring a motorcycle show and shine fundraiser event May 25 in Grand Forks. May is Motorcycle Awareness Month and organizer Diane Muscroft said the event begins at 10 a.m. at the parking lot of Overwaitea. Amongst the events, bikers putting their motorcycles on display and people’s choice voting on favourite bikes, with prizes going to first and second place in men’s and ladies’ divisions. At around 1 p.m., attendees will hop on their hogs and motorcycles and travel on an awareness ride to Rock Creek. “The awareness ride is just a ride we do as a group to show people motorcycles are out there and basically the whole event is to raise awareness about motorcycles on the road; to share the road, to look twice when you’re driving to watch for motorcycles,” Muscroft explained. There will be stations along the awareness ride route that will hand out cards and people taking part in the awareness ride will collect cards and form poker hands as part of the poker run portion of the event, with the best hand winning a

prize. Muscroft said donations will be taken for that as well. Muscroft said all proceeds will go to the Boundary Community Food Bank. “We ask the people who bring their motorcycles to donate towards the food bank and that gives them entry fee to the show and shine and eligibility for prizes and the Boundary Community Food Bank is going to run a barbecue … we’ll sell hot dogs by donation, with a suggested minimum amount,” explained Muscroft. The event will also see booths set up for two local groups; the Christian Rider’s Association and the Grand Forks ATV Club – the Christian bikers will be taking part in the awareness ride, as well as the ATV club members who have motorcycles, cars or trucks. Muscroft said the event will wind up at the Station Pub in Grand Forks with a dinner where the poker run winner will be announced. “We certainly welcome motorcycles of all makes and models to the event,” Muscroft said. “We also would invite anyone in a vehicle who wants to join us, even for the awareness ride, if they want to follow along and be part of the group.” Again, the event takes place this Saturday and 2.833 x 4 begins at 10 a.m.

Start triathlon training again z GFREC Report

KIM JOHNSON

You know it is spring in the Boundary when you see the cyclists out on the road, the runners on the sidewalks and the swimmers testing the water temperature at Christina Lake. I am told it is a comfortable 18 C, and yes, there are those brave enough to slip on their wetsuit and take the plunge in May. Grand Forks and Christina Lake residents represent a large number of participants taking part in road races, marathons and triathlons throughout British Columbia and beyond. These individuals are willing to challenge themselves physically and mentally to achieve their goals. Everyone who participates in a physical race, no matter the discipline or distance, starts with basic training. Most individuals who begin running, biking or swimming usually do it to get moving in order to reap the benefits that

exercise provides for the body. As a person becomes physically stronger, so does the brain, developing a level of confidence, pride, determination and mental fortitude. Challenging oneself to compete in a mini race or a full on triathlon is often a natural byproduct of increased physical fitness. Signing up for a competition can be a great motivator toward becoming more physically active. Goal setting is an important tool, and what better way to motivate oneself than to have a race date looming in the distance. The Pharmasave Christina Lake Sprint Triathlon being held Sunday, June 23, is an awesome event for individuals looking for a challenge and a goal. The race is the perfect distance for the beginner triathlete. The sprint distances for ages 13 and up are a 750-m swim, a 20-km bike ride and a five-km run. The Kids Sprint distance, for ages 7 to 13 years, are a 100-m swim, a six-km bike ride and a two-km run. Early registration fee discounts for the triathlon end May 31, however we will be taking registration until June 19. Participants can register as individual competitors or as part of a team of two or three. For kids ages 7 to 12 years

the Just “TRI� It program is available to help them develop their cycling, running and swimming skills. On Monday May 27th and Wednesday May 29th, Bob MacLean from the local cycling club will provide his expertise on road riding and cycling safety skills.
