Cabin Fever Revelstoke snowboard shop, lounge and bowling alley The Cabin hosted an invite-only snowboard event at Revelstoke Mountain Resort over the May long weekend. It featured food, drinks and a DJ booth atop the gondola and a purpose-built course featuring some rollers and jumps on the hill. The view overlooking the verdant green Columbia Valley was in stark contrast to the usual snowy vista from Mount Mackenzie during the winter. The slushy snow conditions were rapidly deteriorating, including lots of bare patches, but hey, it’s riding in May. Here, the phantom of the Stoke chair rides to the top.

Norm Macdonald returning to Victoria in opposition once more Alex Cooper

Norm Macdonald will be returning to the British Columbia legislature as a member of the opposition after winning re-election in Columbia River–Revelstoke, only to watch his party suffer a defeat province-wide on Tuesday. Macdonald's victory was narrower in the past. With all ballot boxes counted, he was at 48.2 per cent support (6,019 votes), compared to 36.4 per cent (4,543 votes) for the Liberal candidate Doug Clovechok. Conservative Earl Olsen picked up 8.6 per cent (1,079 votes) of the vote and Green Party candidate Laurel Ralston had 6.8 per cent (851 votes) of the vote. 12,492 votes were cast, down from 13,520 in 2009 when only 56 per cent of eligible voters cast ballots. Macdonald was watching the results of the 2013 provincial election at his home office in Golden, surrounded by supporters and well wishers. He declared himself "profoundly disappointed" at the results of the evening, though he was grateful for his support in Columbia River-Revelstoke. "We ran a low-cost, volunteerbased campaign and we spoke the truth. It was a respectful campaign," Macdonald said, thanking all of the people who came out to help with his campaign, and saying the victory could not have happened without them. Despite the disappointment at remaining in Opposition, Macdonald says his job remains the same – to fight for the constituents of Columbia River–Revelstoke. "My job is to fight for seniors, for the land, for the youth in our communities, and I will take that fight to Victoria," he said. On the provincial level, he is baffled by the night's results. "It's a surprise to me. I expected people would see through what the Liberals were saying," he said. "Unfortunately, the lesson learned is that to be exceedingly negative and personal will be rewarded. We passed up that opportunity both

locally and provincially. It doesn't bode well for the process going forward, or for rational, fact-based debate." Clovechok also had to digest bittersweet results. While he did not take the riding, his party did far better than expected and he was quick to give the credit to Premier Christy Clark. "I am absolutely thrilled with the results provincially," he said. "Christy Clark is a master campaigner and obviously, the people of B.C. didn't want the NDP anywhere near government." Conservative candidate Olsen had a strong showing that saw him receive more than 1,000 votes. "Obviously, it did not go as well as I would have hoped it would go for us, but at the same time I think overall for a start-up, we did well," he said. "I don't think there is any doubt when looking at the numbers that we turned it into a three-party race. We did not help the Liberals’ efforts in the area," Olsen said. Olsen was quick to praise Macdonald for his victory. "My message to him is congratulations. He ran a great campaign and I enjoyed campaigning with him and against him. He is a gentleman." There were big smiles at Liberal Party headquarters in Revelstoke as Clark led the party to an unexpected majority in the British Columbia legislature, even though local candidate Clovechok lost. At the office on First Street, party supporters watched on Global News as results showed Liberal support holding steady from 2009 and the party winning another majority in government. "I'm pleased the way Christy handled her whole campaign. It started out rough but now we've closed and we can see the work paid off," said Peter Bernacki, the vice-president of the Columbia River-Revelstoke Liberal Riding Association. At NDP headquarters just down the block, the mood was very different as the early returns showed the Liberals leading province-wide and stayed that way throughout the

night until a majority was declared by the major media outlets. "Obviously we're really pleased that Norm's got re-elected. On the other hand we're dissapointed with the provincial results," said Bill Macfarlane, the NDP campaign chair in Revelstoke. He attributed the Liberals victory to the "politics of nasty." "Which is really sad I think," he said. "It basically means if you're a bully, you win." The mood at Clovechok's campaign headquarters in Invermere on election night was a mixed bag of excitement at Clark's majority win and disappointment that Clovechok was not among the Liberal MLAs elected. As the returns from the polls came in, Macdonald took a significant lead. Liberal supporters and

volunteers at Clovechok's office were quick to point out that the vote difference between the two parties was closer than in the last election. “You sure had [Macdonald] scared,” said one Liberal volunteer, who was heading home for the evening. But in the end, a narrower loss is still a loss, according to Clovechok. “Whether it's 10,000 votes or whether it's one vote, it doesn't matter,” said Clovechok, congratulating Macdonald and adding he was happy the campaign stayed respectful. Now that the election is over, Clovechok said he hopes that Macdonald realizes he has to make sure he continues to represent the people in the district. "We are going to hold Mr. Macdonald's feet to the fire. The peo-

ple in Columbia River–Revelstoke spoke, and they decided to keep the NDP in this riding, which means yet again it is a riding that does not have a member of the government," Clovechok said. Macdonald said that fight will start right away with many items on the agenda when he gets back to Victoria, even though he is once again on the opposition side of the house. "The people here have chosen me as their representative, and we will hold them (the BC Liberals) to an account. We will fight to make sure this area is strongly represented."

Shelter Bay Land moves closer to breaking ground

Just for kicks...

Alex Cooper

The proposed Shelter Bay development moved closer to breaking ground after an Official Community Plan amendment received final adoption by the Columbia–Shuswap Regional District last week. The large, 767-unit development has been in the planning stages for years and has been the subject of two open houses, one public hearing and has gone through all three readings and necessary government approvals. The amendment changes the Area B Official Community Plan to allow for the type of mixed-use zoning planned for the Shelter Bay Lands located along Highway 23 north of the Shelter Bay ferry dock. For the next step, the property needs to be re-zoned. That will happen when a new zoning bylaw is passed for all of Area B, hopefully later this year, said direcThe Just For Kicks dance program hosted a very entertaining 2013 annual dance recital at the Revelstoke Performing Arts tor Loni Parker.

Revelstoke city planning director John Guenther resigns

Planning director sought to modernize city planning during breather created by global economic downturn, but fell short when novel planning processes dragged on for years and spurred resistance. Cancelation of centrepiece unified development bylaw in January signalled end of tenure; Revelstoke Crossing hotel development cancellation bookended tenure. Aaron Orlando

John Guenther, the City of Revelstoke’s planning director for the past four years, has resigned. The official news came in a May 17 media release, but Guenther had been on leave since at least May 13. On May 13, Tim Palmer, the city’s Chief Administrative Officer, told the Times Review that Guenther was on leave for personal reasons. On May 16, he said Guenther was “on paid leave” and would be unavailable for city business. On May 17, the city issued a media release, which included a statement from Guenther: “I would like to thank the community, agencies and other staff for their exhilarating engagement; and city council and the commissions for their leadership, mentoring, and guidance. Many undone planning endeavors remain, but the city will conceive of innovative ways of shaping the future. The people within their neighourhoods and other partners will hammer out the ambitious goals of the official community plan.” In an interview, Palmer said he wouldn’t disclose any details relating to the end of Guenther’s employment, other than to say he had resigned. Citing employee privacy rules, Palmer wouldn’t say if Guenther had been asked to resign, or if he had received any compensation or a severance package. Likewise, Mayor David Raven wouldn’t comment on the terms of Guenther’s resignation, other than to wish him luck in the future. Guenther’s mobile phone was not in service this week, and the Times Review was unable to speak with him directly. Guenther, who holds a PhD in planning, took over the reigns of the planning department about four years ago, after working in Arizona, Wash-

ington State and North Vancouver. Soon after his arrival, Guenther embarked on an ambitious plan to adopt a ‘unified development bylaw’ (UDB) in Revelstoke in order to update Revelstoke’s zoning rules, which he said were dated, disorganized and ill-suited for a burgeoning resort community. In addition to re-tooling the planning and zon-

ing bylaws to better fit changes brought on by the development of Revelstoke Mountain Resort, the new planning rules also sought to bring Revelstoke in line with modern planning concepts. These included increasing density to lessen greenhouse gas emissions and reduce infrastructure costs. They also sought to integrate property uses and create walkable community hubs throughout town. The unified development bylaw would have been one of the first in Canada. It experienced some opposition from pockets of residents, who were concerned about increased density in family neighbourhoods; however, it is arguable that a majority of residents who paid attention to the technical and complex changes agreed with the general direction. The UDB process began near the start of the great recession in 2009, when mayor Raven once commented the economic troubles would allow the city to catch up to rapid resort development. In the end, the UDB ultimately failed at the beginning of 2013, when city council pulled the plug, citing its complexity, cost, legal issues and delays. It wasn’t all for nothing; many aspects of the UDB had been implemented in phases. Initially enthusiastic about the pioneering UDB, council appeared to grow weary of endless, often extremely complex legal and public processes. Guenther always appeared to know his stuff well, but struggled to communicate it effectively with council; he answered questions from councillors with machine-gun barrages of technical jargon that evidently didn’t clarify the situation for most in the room, (including this member of the press), leaving an impression the planner was pushing ahead regardless of concerns. More push-back came from the development community, who grew tired of delay and uncer-

tainty created by the ongoing planning process, which they said were stalling development. In general, “planning fatigue” became a word bandied about public open houses. Attendance waned at many public planning sessions, which seemed to be an endless thicket of intertwined plans that seemed far-removed from on-theground change. Some questioned how much the public input was actually being considered. There was no formal announcement in January, 2013 when the UDB was killed. It signalled a high water mark and likely end to Guenther’s term here. Guenther always pushed forward at a breakneck pace, and appeared to be on a career track that suggested he’d move on once Revelstoke’s planning rules had been modernized and sewn up. In the past weeks, the developers of the proposed Revelstoke Crossing hotel and restaurant development pulled out and announced they were selling the property, citing the political climate in city hall as a major reason. In a statement, CAO Palmer wished Guenther well: “John’s passionate leadership and innovative approach with the UDB will continue to have lasting impact on the city’s growth. We wish John all the best and are confident that he will continue to thrive with his future endeavours.” Palmer told the Times Review that Guenther would be working with the city until May 23 to wrap up unfinished business, but wouldn’t be at city hall. Mike Thomas, the city’s new Director of Engineering, will take over for Guenther in the interim. In a statement issued by the city, Guenther reflected on his time here: “They say you never know how great your friends are, until you have to say good-bye; and Revelstoke’s people spring from a truly magical and enduring land.”

NDP wins a majority from B.C.’s students ALEX COOPER

If students could vote, the BC New Democratic Party would be much happier today. Norm Macdonald was the overwhelming choice of students in Revelstoke and across Columbia River–Revelstoke and the NDP won a decisive majority in the BC Student Vote mock election conducted alongside the provincial vote. Macdonald, who won the general election, was the choice of 66 out of 82 students who cast a vote at Revelstoke Secondary School. Liberal Doug Clovechok and Conservative Earl Olsen both had seven votes and Green candidate Laurel Ralston received two votes. At Arrow Heights Elementary, Macdonald received 32 votes, Ralston 16, Clovechok 12 and Olsen 3. At Begbie View Elementary, Macdonald received 23 votes, Ralston 16, Olsen 3, and Clovechok 2. Columbia Park Elementary did not take part in the campaign, which is designed to get youth interested in politics and engage them in provincial issues. Riding-wide, Macdonald received 392 votes for 50.7 per cent of ballots cast. Ralston had 21 per cent, Clovechok 15.4 per cent and Olsen 12.9 per cent. Provincially, students voted in an NDP majority, electing them in 54 ridings. The Liberal Party won 20 seats, the Green Party eight seats and three seats went to independents. Like in the general election, the Conservatives were shut out.

BTWW: Revelstoke’s cycling infrastructure Alex Cooper

When Suzanne Grieve went to visit her daughter in Utrecht, the Netherlands, earlier this year, one thing that jumped out at her was the cycling infrastructure there. “The first thing that impressed me is rush hour was quiet because there was a visible population riding their bikes,” she said. In Revelstoke, Grieve is the co-ordinator of Bike to Work Week, an initiative started in Victoria to get people to commute to work by bicycle. In Revelstoke, it has grown every year. In the Netherlands, she was impressed with just how much cycling is a way of life. There are designated bike lanes everywhere. There are separate traffic lights for cyclists. There are massive, multi-story bike racks outside train stations. In central areas, there are underground parking lots for bicycles so people aren’t locking up their bikes on sidewalks meant for pedestrians. In Revelstoke, the biking infrastructure is much more limited. Part of it is simple demographics and geography – Revelstoke, with its small population, lowdensity and quiet streets, doesn’t need bike lanes like the Netherlands does. What does exist in Revelstoke is minimal. There are no dedicated bike lanes, aside from one short one up the hill towards Arrow Heights. There are bike racks scattered on sidewalks throughout downtown. The Revelstoke Credit Union has a large bike rack in the alleyway behind its building on Second Street West. The Alpine Village Mall, where Cooper’s Grocery is, turns over one of its parking spaces to bike racks in the summer. Pharmasave has done likewise. “I’m very impressed when I see the businesses that are starting to support that mode of transportation and designate areas to that,” said Grieve. “They’re visible, they’re not hiding them towards the back.” Another business that has invested in bike infrastructure is the Big Eddy Pub, which has installed a water hose, air hose, repair stand and bike racks behind the pub. No doubt they are going after riders on their way back from Mt. Macpherson, but also people biking to the pub instead of driving. The one thing missing in Rev-

elstoke is a bike lane. Last summer, the city painted sharrows on Third Street and Douglas Street, indicating the lanes are shared between bicycles and cars. Still, a plan for a dedicated bike lane on Fourth Street East from Townley Street to the Illecillewaet Bridge remains in the planning stages after what seems like years of work. Last July, council gave conditional approval towards a plan that would see parking removed on one side of Fourth Street East, however in December, after a report from staff came back, council voted once again to delay implemention. Now staff is waiting of the Master Transportation Plan to be completed, and for a signage report from ICBC. “We want to make sure we get it right and give council the best information we can. I think the more information we give them, that’s positive,” said Darren Komonoski, the manager of public works. “And also the correct information – that will bode well for the project.” For Grieve, it’s a matter of making people aware of the shared roadways. Cyclists should stay off sidewalks, which are for pedestrians, and drivers and

cyclists need to recognize that roads are shared. “Whether we need blocked lanes, I don’t know that,” she said. “I think a lot of that is just being sensitive to the community and sharing it.”

The investigation into the May 4 fire on the CP Rail Bridge over the Columbia River is ongoing. A spokesperson for the Transportation Safety Board of Canada said it is up to CP Rail and the local fire department to determine the cause.

Rob Girard, the Revelstoke fire chief, said the department was not taking part in the investigation because it was on CP Rail land. A spokesperson for CP Rail said the fire was still being investigated. The Transportation Safety Board would only investigate if CP Rail concluded the fire was caused by a train.

What’s happening for Bike to Work Week?


Bike to Work Week is back in Revelstoke from May 27 to June 2. It is being run in much the same way as previous years. Workplaces are asked to sign up as a team, and team leaders are expected to encourage their coworkers to get involved. “The focus this week is to challenge your perceived reasons for not riding. If it’s raining and you think you can’t ride in the rain – try it and we’ll reward you,” said Grieve. There will be celebration stations at Grizzly Plaza and at Queen Victoria Hospital on May 27 from 6:30–9 a.m. At the end of the week, there will be a draw for prizes.

ELLIOTT BROOD Time-travelling Toronto trio writes songs steeped in history but that still feel present. Live at the Traverse at 8 p.m. $20 in advance and $25 at the door.

Toronto-based folk-rock trio Elliott BROOD (Mark Sasso, Casey Laforet, Stephen Pitkin) is fresh off a Juno Award win in the roots and traditional category for their late-2011 album Days Into Years. They’ll be warming up for an appearance at the Sasquatch Festival in Washington state with a show at Traverse Lounge this Thursday, May 23. BROOD overlays lyrical Canadiana themes with stripped-down traditional string sounds; Days Into Years drew inspiration from a European road trip detour to visit the resting places of Canadian soldiers lost in the great wars. The pollsters are telling us it’ll be hard to beat a rollerderby season opener/burlesque show double-bill on Saturday, but the Times Review isn’t afraid to predict BROOD is a contender for show of the week – or at least weekday. They’re known to dump a sack full of noisemakers on the dance floor to get the crowd into it – and the local Ontarians seem to be excited, so get your tickets early. Elliott BROOD is also scheduled for a school show on May 24. — Aaron Orlando Elliott BROOD image

he newly-completed Mica Heliskiing lodge perches on a ridge above the Mica Dam, overlooking the Kinbasket reservoir – a jewel in a crowning achievement done mostly by Revelstokians. The old lodge was bulldozed on April 5, and just eight months later on Dec. 5, Vic Van Isle delivered a new, 12-bedroom, and nearly 14,000 square-foot luxury lodge. Mica Heliskiing marketing manager Darryn Shewchuk had high praise for the contractor and small army of subcontractors who built and polished the lodge. “It’s just absolutely amazing that they could pull off such a high-end luxury building in eight months. There are luxury homes half that size that have taken two years to build.” he said. “It’s unbelievable. It’s truly an eighth-wonder of the world.” The building is certainly not a ski shack. It boasts a massive living area, a media room, a full kitchen, bar and many high tech amenities. There are hot tubs, private views of the reservoir from every room, a full gym, a gourmet kitchen and massage studios. “The building is ridiculously overbuilt. The walls are all six-inch thick with double matting and double drywall for sound-proofing,” Shewchuk said. “The floors are saw-cut, 12-inch wide timber and all the stone … is all from Mt. Robson.” Giant fir beams, wooden planked flooring, natural cedar finishings, log walls, custom concrete counters, immaculate rock work, sheer glass and engineered lighting design synthesize rustic the cabin feel with modern sheik. Local artist Tina Lindegaard was handed a $50,000 budget to scout and commission works from local and Kootenay artists, which are featured throughout. It’s the work of CEI Architecture, who add the lodge to an impressive array of public and private buildings in B.C. including the Chuck Bailey Rec-

reation Centre in Surrey, the Northwest Community College in Smithers and Jim Pattison Centre of Excellence at Okanagan College. The B.C. company has received many accolades for green and sustainable construction. “They really got what we were looking to accomplish in keeping the cozy feel of the existing lodge, but really making something that’s modern, state-of-the-art and combining those two elements,” Shewchuk said. “They pulled it off amazingly.” Behind the natural wood and glass, there’s a high-tech substructure. The media room offers bigscreen TVs next to the fireplace. Many rooms wirelessly sync the built-in sound system with your smartphone. The ski room features lockers with built-in drying fans. The room has an overall negative pressure so, “You don’t get that wet boot smell going thorough the whole lodge,” Shewchuk joked. The finishings match the modern/rustic mix. The wire-brushed solid fir doors cost in the thousands. Restored metal lamps accentuated the rooms. The luxe linens and light-cancelling drapes welcome you to a dark sleep, and open to a panoramic view in the morning. Shewchuk wouldn’t disclose the price tag. Mica Heliskiing is a partnership between minority owners Dan and Susan McDonald and newer majority owner Patrick Callaghan. The McDonald’s are heliskiing veterans who operated Island Lake Lodge near Fernie before moving to Revelstoke and starting Mica. Callaghan is a California-based computer industry veteran and hardcore ski enthusiast who backed the project. “It’s one specific owner who put the money out of his pocket to build something he wanted to build,” explained Shewchuk. “That being said, he wouldn’t have done it if the company wasn’t profitable. We’re sold out nine or ten months in advance.”

This week – Revelstoke Museum – 50 Years. Come to the Revelstoke Museum & Archives for a lunch time talk by curator Cathy English on local history. 12 p.m.

At a small high school – any high school really – cliques form, tensions develop, some students get picked on, some get left out. That's why the student council of Revelstoke Secondary School has decided to take part in Love is Louder, a growing movement designed to promote inclusiveness around a message that "love and support are louder than any internal or external voice that brings us down." "Since we're such a small high school there's a lot of tensions. In a small community there's also a lot of tensions. We want to make a sense of community," said Hayley Copperthwaite, a grade 12 student and student council member at RSS. "We want people to realize how easy it is to do something small that's positive - like holding a door for someone or saying, 'Hey, you look nice today.' Just things like that." The Love is Louder campaign was started by MTV, actress Brittany Snow and the Jed Foundation, whose

mission is to promote emotional health and prevent suicide amongst college and university students. It was started in 2000 by Donna and Phil Satow after their son Jed committed suicide. According to its website, the Love is Louder movement was designed to support "anyone feeling mistreated, misunderstood or alone," and as a way to "address issues like bullying, negative self-image, discrimination, loneliness and depression." While RSS takes part in the antibullying Pink Shirt Day, Copperthwaite said the student council liked the Love is Louder message because of its positive message. "We really liked it because it steered away from anti-bullying," she said. "When you think about it, anti is a negative word and bullying is a negative word. We really wanted to go the route where it's about how we can start respect and bringing love into the school and community, and just make more respectful kids." There will be two main events

Women’s shelter Takes Back the Night with stilettos and rollerskates The Revelstoke Women’s Shelter Society will host a Take Back The Night event at the Traverse Lounge in conjunction with the Revelstoke Derailers’ first home game of the 2013 season on Saturday, May 25. AARON ORLANDO

Revelstoke Women’s Shelter executive director Nelli Richardson is looking forward to an evening of fun and empowerment this Saturday when Vancouver burlesque revival pioneers Sweet Soul Burlesque take the stage at the Traverse Lounge. The rollerderby after-party will feature a performance at 9:30 p.m., followed by a Take Back the Night walk to entertainment venues in downtown Revelstoke. The event is in conjunction with Prevention of Violence Against Women Week. Richardson said both rollerderby and burlesque feature powerful and expressive personas ideal for the awarenessraising evening. “As women, we need a society where we’re safe to

express whatever it is that we need to be doing. I think that the roller derby girls and obviously women who choose burlesque are expressing that,” Richardson said. “[It’s] the whole idea of women doing what they want

to do and feeling powerful and safe in your own skin. At the women’s shelter we believe that all women have the right to live safely in their own communities.” Sweet Soul Burlesque are Vancouver burlesque revival

pioneers, founded in 2003 and featured in festivals, events and media across the continent and beyond. Each troupe member has honed their individual style and performance, creating an energetic ensemble show that fuses classic burlesque with contemporary cultural influences. The Take Back the Night walk happens after the Sweet Soul Burlesque set, around 11:15 p.m. “Part of our mandate is to educate our community and make our community safer for women – that’s more of what this event is about,” Richardson explained. The walk will be followed by DJ sets by DJ Ch3 and Jayse Aspey until close. Richardson said the community has been very generous with donations for the silent auction and other fundraising initiatives, so don’t forget to bring your wallet for the cause. She thanked Traverse Lounge and the Regent Inn for their help hosting the show and their guests. What to wear? Purple is the theme colour for Prevention of Violence Against Women Week. Traverse Lounge cocktail culturist Jay Shoji is creating a special purple cocktail for the evening. Tickets ($15) are available at Society Snow & Skate and Escape Within.

Roller Derby back with new rules, new players and more action ALEX COOPER

After a successful debut season, the Revelstoke Derailers are back in action this weekend for their first home bout of 2013. The local roller derby team started with a bang last year, winning three of its first four games, including wins over Whistler and Penticton in front of sell-out crowds at the Revelstoke Forum. This year, the team has new players, there’s new rules, and there will be a bigger beer garden at the games. “We learned people drink a lot of beer,” joked Tennille ‘Kernel Panic’ Barber. “We’re a more solid team,” added Jen ‘n Tonic’ Kipling. “We’ve picked up some really awesome players this year and the girls who have stuck around since last year are very committed.” I stopped in at a derby practice last week as the team was preparing for this Saturday’s home bout against the Armstrong Candy Strykers. One player sat against the boards icing a knee injury, while at the other end of the rink a few new players, dubbed Fresh Meat, were practicing their skating. On the track, the teams veterans were going at each other, taking turns as jammers and blockers. “It’s going pretty good,” said Eve ‘Whiskey Chaser’ Northmore, one of the team’s newest skaters who recently passed her skill test and will be playing in her first bout this weekend. “It’s been really fun and the girls are all really great.” The biggest change this year comes with a new rule that governs the way jams are started. The jam is the period of play where points were score. Previously there were two whistles to start the jam. The first whistle would start the blockers. Once all the blockers crossed a certain line, a second whistle would go and the jammers would start. This meant that sometimes teams would

A spring drive with the Greenslide Cattle Company

Each spring, local beef producers Greenslide barge their cattle across the Columbia River to their summer grazing grounds. Learn more about local agriculturists doing it right. Aaron Orlando

Drive to the end of the pavement on Airport Way, keep going past Echo Lake and keep an eye out at the 8-kilometre road post. A break in the trees offers a sweeping view of the chalky-blue Akolkolex River’s alluvial fan into the Columbia River. The Victoria Day sunshine lights the moist deep greens on hundreds of acres of pastures and woods on both shores of the Columbia. The Greenslide Cattle Company’s land is on the east shore; the land on the west is leased from BC Hydro for summer pasture, allowing Greenslide to grow hay and haylage in the summer. At the end of a dirt road just past the Akolkolex Bridge, Greenslide Cattle Company head rancher Dwayne Wright unlocks the main gate. His young shelter rescue dog Kaydo, a German shepherd mix, has gone where all overwhelmed dog owners hope theirs will end up – to the farm. Wiry, with close-cropped hair and a shaggy pepper beard, Wright wears a thin T-shirt, tattoos and a red tan from the farm. Kaydo hasn’t lost the habit that landed him on the farm – chewing anything leather – so Dwayne wears gum boots on a hot and humid latespring day. We wind down the shattered-rock road and drive slowly across a sweeping pasture to the corral by the river, where about 85 cattle are penned, ready for their twice-annual ferry ride across the Columbia. Media tours of worksites often feature superfluous hard hats and lectures. Not here. We’re over the corral fence without a word. Wright leads me straight through a herd of large, horned animals that are protecting their newborn calves. The wake-up call is more effective than a plastic lid. Owners Jim and Adele Sinclair round out the team

for the drive. In suspenders and jeans, Jim looks more like a logger (which is his other job). Adele wears head-to-toe denim and a Brandt Tractor ball-cap. Agriculture and cattle have been in the Sinclair family since before the reservoir flooded the valley in the late ‘60s. In the mid-90s, they embarked on a revival of the beef business, and have built their herd up to 85 breeding cows, which translates to about 300 head. We’re there for the spring drive across the Columbia River. From the corral, Adele opens the gate as Jim and Dwayne wander through the penned animals and separate about 15 for each trip. They’re driven down to the river, onto the deck of Greenslide’s homemade barge. Kaydo takes tips from veteran cattle dog Cinder, though it seems like the veteran cows who know the drill are really leading the show. Once aboard, the gates are lashed shut and the cattle encouraged to one end of the barge in order to shift the weight off the sandy shore. Behind the captain’s wheel, Jim powers up the 200-horsepower Mercury engine for the 10-minute voyage across. The wheelhouse is accented with fishing tackle, a small cookstove and blankets. Jim and Adele explain how they grew their business. In the mid-’90s, they started building a herd of Gelbveih cattle, taking advantage of the remote and isolated pasture land, which protects the animals from disease transmission. They don’t spray the fields with pesticides, or treat the animals with antibiotics or hormones – all common practices designed to maximize profits. They sold farm-gate, mostly locally, mostly word of mouth. Cutting out the middle man means they can compete on price. Several years ago, abattoir rules changed, forcing them to use abattoirs in Salmon Arm and Enderby. In the end, the change was for the

better; they’re able to sell locally to restaurants (La Baguette, Modern Bakeshop & Cafe, Mountain Meals and several others. Dolan Home Delivery also

carries their products) and market their product more effectively. Their freezer

Every year the German music label Ruf Records assembles three of their best artists and sends them on tour together. This year, that tour, the Blues Caravan, is coming to Revelstoke, with Jimmy Bowskill, Joanne Shaw Taylor, and Bart Walker on board. “What he does is he just puts together three of his artists with a backup band and we just tour around. So, Blues Caravan, man,” Jimmy Bowskill told me on the phone from Los Angeles, where he was working on some new songs during a break in the tour. This year’s tour is being dubbed as Tomorrow’s Guitar Heroes. Taylor is the veteran of the group, having played on the

Blues Caravan tour in 2009. Originally from England and now living in Texas, she has played with the likes of Annie Lennox and B.B. King. Walker, who is based in Nashville, released his debut album, Who Am I, last year, He was also named the best guitarist at the 2012 International Blues Challenge. “Bart’s a little more Texas rock, ZZ-Top, Skynyrd sort of sound. A little more country flavoured. Joanne’s a little more Hendrix-y. A llittle more psychedelic, jammy sort of stuff,” said Bowskill. “My stuff is seventies trio rock, like Cream.” According to his press sheet, Bowskill, 22, from Toronto, was discovered by Jeff Healey when he was only 11 years old. He told

me he got into guitar at a young age through his parents, who were both music lovers. “My dad was a bit of a singer and he used to jam with his buddy, a guitar player from Toronto,” said Bowskill. “He was great, really inspired me to get going. Having all those classic records around ... I just wanted to be a guitar player. I was surrounded by it.” The three of them met for the first time last fall for a photo shoot and to record a demo track to promote the tour. So far they have played about 50 shows together and have another 30 coming up starting this week in Nelson, B.C. They are in Revelstoke on Saturday, May 25, at the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre at 7:30 p.m. The Blues Caravan tour will see each musician play a 30–40-minute set, backed up by the same drummer and bass player. It gives them each a chance to show off their chops. At the end of the night, the three guitarists will take to the stage and play a few songs together. “It’s pretty diverse, and because of that, it’s fun,” said Bowskill. The most memorable show so far was one in a small town in East Germany, where they played a three-level bar with folkart adorning the walls. From the upper floors you could look down and see the band play. “It was packed and just great vibes. It was a cool venue and awesome show,” he said. I put Bowskill on the spot a little by asking him his dream Blues Caravan lineup. If he could play with any two blues artists, dead or alive, who would it be? “That’s a hard one to answer because I don’t know what it would be like with different folks,” he replied. “It would be hard to imagine doing it with other folks.” Blues Caravan is at the Revelstoke Performing Arts Centre on Saturday, May 25, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $20.

Elliott BROOD playing at RSS for Love is Louder from page 9 over the week. On Wednesday, May 22, the school is holding Superhero vs. Villains day. The idea is for students to create their own, unique alter-ego based on their own personalities. “Play to your strengths and go to your individuality and make your own superhero out of that. I think it’s going to be really fun,” said Copperthwaite. There will be a series of competitions that day – both physical and mental – for students to take part in. The idea is to celebrate every students’ qualities. “It goes with Love is Louder where you play to your strengths

and individualism,” said Copperthwaite. On Friday, May 24, Elliott Brood is coming to RSS with support from the Young Promoters Network and sponsorship by the Revelstoke Arts Council and Columbia Basin Trust. They will play at an assembly in the gymnasium at noon. There will also be a series of media presentations created by student council members and by the wider Love is Louder campaign beforehand. The show is open to the public. “We want as much community support as we can get,” said Copperthwaite. “We want to get all of Revelstoke behind this and into our message.”

While she will be graduating at the end of this year, Copperthwaite hopes Love is Louder will continue at the school and even spread throughout the community. They are selling Love is Louder bracelets for $1. “So this year we get it out there and maybe next year we make it bigger and get community involvement,” she said. “I think it would be a really positive thing for Revelstoke. “Everyone is really passionate about this so I think it’s going to carry on throughout the years.” Find out more about Love is Louder at or check out the RSS blog

Greenslide grows local beef market Greenslide, from p. 11 packs sell out soon after they’re offered. The beef is organic, minus the seal; Adele explains their local customers know their product and that certification would add unnecessary bureaucracy and cost. Adele said their land (with the range area leased from BC Hydro) can sustain about 100 breeding cattle. They don’t want to bring in feed – it creates health issues when outside agriculture products are introduced. They’re at about 85 breeding cows now, and are working toward their ultimate goal. The bright sunshine illuminates the tall, deepgreen grasses of the western shore. Hundreds of hastily-cut stumps perch atop dry, skeletal root bunches stripped clean of soil by the rise and fall of the river. On our last of about five trips, calves and cows separated during the day swim towards the barge as we approach. They U-turn as we get closer, then try to climb back up the hydraulic ramp when it is lowered onto the sand. A few enthusiastic “haws” and wild gesticulating by Dwayne eventually sorts out the cow gridlock. The herd runs back up the beach and goes for another lap around the large pasture area before settling down to eat. As we power back home across the reservoir, Jim and Adele scan back across the water, recognizing individuals from hundreds of metres away. They’re making sure all the cows and their calves are pairing up properly, worrying about a couple of the newborns. Adele explains they’ve got to know their cattle by looks. Distinctive markings on a calve will remind her of its grandmother. Adele said they’ve sent a few head to auction recently, but will soon be able to do 100 per cent direct sales. They all want it that way. “I know they’re in our care right to the last day,” she explained. They don’t spend time in feedlots; they’re treated well. They’ve also selected the best, closest abattoirs and use proper hang-curing (unlike industrial plastic bag techniques used to retain extra water weight.) Wright started out logging for Sinclair, before taking on the job as head rancher about a dozen years

ago. He loves it, he explained. Exclusive fishing access, a stunning environment and lots to keep you busy. He’ll start on the summer hay crop now. In winter, he drives in to tend the cattle, even snowmobiling in when the roads become un-passable. The cattle take care of themselves, mostly. The multi-purpose Gelbveih cattle are paired with smaller bulls, so they calve without difficulty. He has to “pull” a calf only about once a year. “My son wants to be a farmer,” Wright said. After just one fabulous day on the ranch for me, I start wondering if there are any other pasture lands somewhere south on the Arrow Lake I can stake. Burton Cattle Company? Fauquier Cattle Company? Edgewood Organic Cattle? I wonder.

Derailers hosting three bouts, including men’s game from page 10 apply delay tactics, either to gain position or simply to kill time. This year, there is only one whistle and everyone – jammers and blockers – start at the same time. “It makes it faster and makes longer jams,” said Barber. “I could potentially jam for the full two minutes instead of them wasting time when I’m standing on the jam line. It’s more action right off the bat, more action altogether.” Over winter the team didn’t have a practice space and it lost bouts against the more experienced Candy Strykers and the Kamloops Derby Dolls. “We’re

a lot tougher a team now,” said Kipling. “We took a lot of hits in the off-season.” In addition to this weekend’s match against the Candy Strykers, the Derailers are hosting bouts against the Calgary Kill Jills on June 29, and the NWO Rollergirls from Chilliwack on July 13. The teams the Derailers are playing this year are all more experienced, which should make for closer, more exciting bouts, said Barber. “Honestly, if we played the teams we played last year it would probably not be as good as a show,” she said. “People don’t want to see blowouts, they want to see excitement.” The June 29 bout will be a

double-header, with the second match a men’s derby battle between the Calgary Reservoir Dogs and the Vancouver Murder. “It’s bone breaking, bone crunching fun,” said Barber on the men’s bout. “We’ve been told we cannot skimp on the paramedics that night.” The Revelstoke Derailers take on the Armstrong Candy Strykers on Saturday, May 25, at the Revelstoke Forum. Doors open at 6:15 p.m. and the match starts at 7 p.m. Tickets are $8 in advance and $10 at the door. Advance tickets are available at Society Snow & Skate, Mane Attraction, Ray’s Butcher Shop and the River City Pub.

They are encouraged to dress up, paint their faces and wear the colours of the country they are representing. Coaches will also be getting into the spirit with costumes and more.

Chris Andrews competes in the hammer throw at the Okanagan Valley Track and Field Championships last week. Contributed by Andy Pfeiffer/RSS Athletics

Forty three Revelstoke Secondary School athletes competed in the Apple Bowl in Kelowna last Wednesday, May 15, in the Okanagan Valley Track and Field Championships. Team strength was highlighted by RSS capturing the grade 8 girls, grade 8 boys, and junior girls' team titles at the meet. Individual athlete results highlight the strength of the RSS track team in the throwing events. Peter Behncke led the throwers by easily winning the hammer by throwing over 53 meters. The hammer is an event in which Behncke hopes to improve

on the bronze medal he won last year at high school provincials. Peter Grimm was the Okanagan valley champion in the junior hammer, despite throwing 30.55 meters, a full ten meters below his earlier efforts this year. Mack Reynolds's hard work in the discus circle this spring paid off with a 29.28 metre throw for first place. And javelin throwers Bronte Viznaugh and Takara Tompkins were Okanagan valley champions in their respective javelin events. The final track meet of the season is the provincial championships in Langley on May 31st where seven senior and seven grade 8–9 athletes from Revelstoke will compete.
