A huge section of Grand Forks was without power after an accident at the local landfill last Wednesday. Areas of Riverside Drive were affected, as well as most of downtown, Valley Heights, Granby Road and the industrial area of Grand Forks, including Interfor – Hal Wright, City of Grand Forks manager of operations, estimated half the city was affected. Wright said that the accident involved an excavator clipping wires and pulling down a pole at the Regional District of Kootenay Boundary (RDKB) garbage dump on Granby Road. “A gentleman was trapped in (the excavator) until power could be disconnected and the excavator could be removed and he could get out safely. He’s fine, thank goodness, but as a result, all the power (was) taken out for half of downtown and Riverside Drive,” explained Wright.

“It was a pretty large power outage.” According to the City of Grand Forks, FortisBC aided in restoring power to Interfor and half of downtown in the first hour and power was restored to all customers around 1 p.m. that afternoon due to required repairs that involved safely energizing remaining energy lines. The city’s electrical staff took the subsequent two days to complete repairs at both the landfill and at the electrical substation. The accident at the landfill caused a chain reaction throughout the city, knocking out power and causing sparks to fly from a pole near the Imperial Motel. Jackie Metcalfe, an administrator at Granby Dental on Riverside Drive, said appointments had to be cancelled due to the outage and she saw sparks flying as she was coming into work. “As I was getting out of the car this morning, I think it was a transformer by the Imperial Motel, flashed. It was like a burst of sparks and light

and then there was a boom,” she said. “When I came in, the power was out.” The Grand Forks Credit Union was also affected by the outage. “Our power was off for about an hour,” said Angela Soukoreff, marketing and communications manager for the credit union. “We were not able to open our doors to our members until almost 10:45 a.m. as the system had some issues when restarted because of the duration of the outage.” The RDKB did not immediately respond to a call on Monday but CAO John MacLean had told the Gazette on Friday that the regional district was conducting an investigation. The City of Grand Forks said that during future outages, updates will be announced to local radio stations and information will also be made available through the city electrical emergency number 250-442-2033

Fraser Institute says GFSS improving

The Fraser Institute has Grand Forks Secondary School as one of the fastest improving schools in B.C. but officials are still against ranking schools.

z QUEEN OF NORTH SINKING

Queen of the North officer receives four-year jail sentence KOLBY SOLINSKY Black Press

The navigating officer in the Queen of the North ferry sinking, Karl Lilgert, has been sentenced to four years in jail and is banned from operating any vessel for the next 10 years. Lilgert, who has resided in Grand Forks, was convicted with negligence causing the death of two passengers – Gerald Foisy and Shirley Rosette, who have not been found – in the ferry sinking on March 22, 2006.

News tips

Lilgert was originally charged in 2010 and his trial began in January 2013. He was found guilty of criminal negligence in May. Monday’s decision was handed down by B.C. Supreme Court Justice Sunni Stromberg-Stein. She called Lilgert’s actions “an extreme and catastrophic dereliction of duty.” Lilgert was on the ferry’s bridge during the accident, when the Queen of the North missed a turn and struck Gil Island.

Lilgert is seeking an appeal, according to reports. Prior to the accident, he had no criminal record or driving infractions. According to CTV, “(Crown) lawyers alleged Lilgert was distracted by the presence of his former lover on the bridge. Quartermaster Karen Briker was alone with Lilgert at the time of the sinking. “The couple had ended their relationship just weeks before the voyage.” The Crown was asking for six years in jail and a lifetime ban on operating a vessel.

While the Fraser Institute has Grand Forks Secondary School (GFSS) listed as one of the fastest improving secondary schools in B.C., School District 51 officials are still against school rankings. According to the right-wing think tank, GFSS is ranked eighth out of 26 high schools in the province in terms of significant academic performance improvement over the past five years. The local high school also ranked 133 out 284 in this year’s Fraser Institute secondary school report card rankings after placing 181 out of 280 last year. GFSS scored 4.7 out of 10 in 2008 and 4.2 the next year but subsequently, it scored a 5.6, a 5.4 and a 6.1 in 2012. Amongst the items factored into the scores: average exam mark, percentage of exams failed, school vs. exam mark difference, English and math gender gaps, graduation rates and delayed advancement rate. “The Fraser Institute doesn’t tell the whole story about what a school provides for its students,” said GFSS principal Scott Stewart. “I’m proud of the work our staff does not only to encourage student achievement but to support students in graduating and achieving a well-rounded education.” Teresa Rezansoff, chair of the SD51 board of education and president of the B.C. School Trustees Association, said the school board echoed Stewart’s sentiments. “Our response is that rankings do not tell the entire story,” explained Rezansoff. “There is much more to school and student success than what the Fraser Institute uses to determine its rankings. We are proud of the work that is done in all of our schools, the dedication of our

staff and the achievements of our students.” Norm Sabourin, president of the Boundary District Teachers’ Association (BDTA), said the teacher’s union is completely against the Fraser Institute’s school report cards, as it is not an accurate depiction. “The amazing staff at every school in our district provides excellent service to students so any ‘snapshot’ assessment by the Fraser Institute does not reflect the quality of our schools or student achievement in any variety of areas,” Sabourin said. “Has anyone considered assessing the Fraser Institute in its ability to provide meaningful research results? In my humble opinion, I would say it does not meet expectations.” Peter Cowley, the Fraser Institute’s director of school performance studies, disagrees with the comments from SD51. “This is objective information with regard to how individual schools are doing in academics,” Cowley said. “We provide five years of data so that anyone that wishes – be they parents or educators and we have both visiting our site – can see how a school is doing over time. In addition, we have a trend measure that shows you clearly, on any one of the indicators, as well as the overall rating out of 10, whether the change is what we call statistically significant, i.e. that it’s real change and not just random fluctuation from year to year. These things can’t be found anywhere else.” Boundary Central Secondary School scored a 5.1 out of 10 and ranked 213 out of 284 in this year’s report.. In the elementary school rankings, Hutton Elementary School scored a 6.9 out of 10 this year and ranked 252 out of 853 while Perley Elementary scored 5.2 and ranked 558 out of 853.

Maintaining air quality

An article in the Sept. 26, 2012 issue of the Grand Forks Gazette told residents that data on ground level air quality was collected on a set route during the summer by Jordan Andrews, a student from the University of Victoria. Andrews was supervised by Wayne Kopan, the environmental and building construction services manager for the City of Grand Forks at the time. Data collection was ongoing through the winter and will continue through the summer, 2013. The purpose of the collection was to determine the levels of particulate matter of 2.5 microns (PM2.5) or less in size, particles so small that they can penetrate the respiratory system and become the cause of serious ailments. During the winter a half-dozen volunteers followed the route taken by Andrews to measure the variations in colder weather conditions. Gathering the information is the easy part of this study. The difficult part is to make meaningful policy decisions based on the data. Kopan stated that truck traffic exhaust emissions and road dust were the source of major spikes in the summer data. He stated that in winter there are likely to be higher ratings in specific areas because of smoke from wood stoves. How will those among them who are polluters be identified and dealt with? Diesel exhaust is a mixture of over 400 particulates, gases and toxic organic compounds that result from the burning of diesel fuel. The state of California has designated 40 of these compounds as toxic. Road dust can also be a mixture of particulates, some coming from tires and the asphalt road surface. Although the city must be commended for wanting to improve the quality of the air in the basin, do residents really pay much attention to the air they breathe? Some appear to, but many others are oblivious. Gyro Park is a prime location for high concentrations of diesel exhaust emissions and road dust yet the park is used frequently. There are other so-called hot spots along the set route. Will this be another report that is left on a shelf somewhere in city hall or will it be followed by another by-law that will require enforcement? Fortunately the city has appointed Kopan as bylaw enforcement officer and he will carry out those duties once several new bylaws are passed by city council. Unfortunately there is no bylaw to govern the behaviour of those who pollute the air, with the exception of the no idling bylaw. While the city is gathering information on fine particulate matter in the air, some residents would prefer that ground level ozone be the focus of its work. Ground level ozone-a key ingredient of smog--is created by chemical reactions between oxides of nitrogen (NOx) and volatile organic compounds (VOC) in the presence of sunlight. It is an air pollutant that damages human health and vegetation. Major sources of NOx and VOC are industrial operations, electrical utilities, motor vehicle exhaust, gasoline vapours, and chemical solvents. Ground level ozone can trigger a variety of health problems including chest pain, coughing, throat irritation, and congestion. Asthma, bronchitis and emphysema can be worsened. Should another study be conducted or should the environment committee concentrate first on drafting a set of ambient air quality standards for the valley the city and then try to convince the folks in Area D to abide by them? That is a huge challenge.

While many are quick to say that society has become too selfish and too self-centred, there always reminders that the statement is not true. Case in point, the floods in Alberta. The situation is dire with some saying it could take a decade for the province to recover from the disaster and residents of the province are said to be looking to the government for help. The flooding was so bad, the bottom part of Calgary’s Saddledome was said to be completely flooded. But if you took a quick gander at Facebook, you would’ve seen and still continue to see people wishing their Albertan friends, or people in Alberta in general well. There are also numerous stories of people volunteering to

help out the victims. According to a report, a volunteer movement is spreading through the help of social media site Twitter and is gaining traction. Operators from the City of Vancouver and BC Hydro crews are said to be ready to help out their brethren to the east. The same for members of the Salvation Army from across the province. B.C.’s Health Ministry is said to be offering a number of services to flood-stricken Albertans, including the health-care professionals, health inspectors amongst other things.

Alberta’s neighbours to the east are offering a helping hand as well. Saskatchewan has sent divers from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to assist according to reports and it has also sent a water rescue team and equipment as well. The number of other instances of people offering and assist are far too numerous to mention here. The point is, even though there are more people with a “me, me, me” attitude, there are exponentially more that have a “give, give, give” attitude and hearing all the stories of volunteers, soldiers, firefighters helping those in need. It’s easy to be cynical based on all the bad that is happening in the world but there are good things happening in the world too.

I enjoy shopping downtown Editor: Re: Businesses need to be more welcoming (letter, June 19 issue) I read with dismay the letter regarding businesses needing to be more welcoming here in Grand Forks in last week’s Gazette. I truly disagree with this

opinion in almost every way, finding the shopkeepers, and indeed the people here, being among the friendliest people I have ever met. I am always cheered up when I go downtown and go among the stores and never find any cause for complaint. It seems odd that two people could have such different opinions on the same subject.

It wasn’t here yet but it was coming with the promise of a glorious day. My heart filled with gratitude for so many things I was grateful for and this Father’s Day, I wanted to

z OPINION bless my husband Valentine Parfiniuk, who has so many obstacles for his health to overcome in his late years. On his 80th birthday, he had a mini-stroke that caused his health to go downhill and then dementia set in. Then on the coldest day in February two years ago, he fell on the ice and broke his hip. After surgery, he though he would never walk again. In his 80s, it was a hard situation to face but the hospital staff, and we, the family, never gave up on him and the ambulance attendants carried him into the house when we brought him home. It took a while, but he started to walk only to fall on the garden tiller blade not much later and he landed in the hospital again with a deep cut on his leg. In his health struggles, he and we didn’t give up hope and today, with great gratitude, we thank the universe’s maker for all of our gifts. Valentine walks all through the yard by himself, and we bless him for his achievement of carving, remarkable, beautiful walking sticks or canes. We the family bless him to climb up with God’s healing and we thank and bless all who helped him on his journey of precious life. He is 82 years old. Blessing all of the caring people, Nell Parfiniuk, Grand Forks

Today’s BC Liberals like yesterday’s BC Liberals The memories of the provincial election held on May 14 are now dim and with the exception of the residents of Kelowna-Westside, British Columbians have returned to doROY RONAGHAN ing what they normally do at this time of year. With the exception of the by-election, there is not much to remind us of May 14. Three events occurred this month that seem indicative of the kind of people who were elected to govern the province for the next four years and they remind us that “Today’s BC Liberals” are just like yesterday’s BC Liberals. First, Christy Clark announced that political staff would get a good-sized pay raise. Her chief of staff was scheduled to get a raise from $175,000 to $225,000 People complained that a government that espoused fiscal restraint was sending the wrong message with the pay raise. On June 20, Clark responded to the flack and reversed the decision to give raises. She cancelled the raises for all staff with the exception of her deputy chief of staff, Michele Calario, who worked as deputy campaign manager for the Liberals during the campaign. She will now receive $195,148. Dan Doyle, chief of staff, gets the same salary. By comparison, Barack Obama’s chief of staff is paid $172,200. Ministerial chiefs of staff got no raise but they already receive $94,500. In response to questions about her decision to cancel the raises, Clark said, “It was the wrong decision and I have always in my political life said to people, ‘I’m going to listen and if I make a mistake, I’m going to step up and fix it,’ and so that’s what we’re doing. The message isn’t consistent with my determination to control government spending,” she said. “I said during the election we’re going to control spending and we’re going to try and make government smaller if we can, and that’s going to mean tightening our belts.” If it was wrong to give the raises, why did she and her cabinet agree to them? Were they hoping no one would notice? Around the same time, seniors in care homes were told that they would have to pay $300 annually for wheelchair maintenance and that future maintenance will be privatized. Will Clark call for a reversal of this decision too? Long-time Clark critics will say making characteristic of Clark and Today’s BC Liberals and there will be more of it. A third and highly important event was the introduction of the new cabinet at the Vancouver Convention Centre. Nineteen cabinet ministers and 14 parliamentary secretaries were named making the 2013 cabinet, larger than its predecessor. The promise of fiscal restraint during the election campaign was just a promise. During the next four years, four of the 19 ministries will get more attention than the rest to fulfill government objectives of jobs, growth and economic strength. They will be Natural Gas Development; International Trade and Technology; Energy and Mines and Technology; and Innovation and Citizens’ Services. Rich Coleman, Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) for Fort Langley remains as deputy premier and takes on the new Ministry of Natural Gas Development. He will be responsible for keeping the cabinet up to speed on heavy oil (bitumen) pipeline developments and natural gas production. A pipeline and a couple of liquified gas plants at Kitmat will be high on his list. Teresa Wat, MLA for Richmond Centre, a newcomer, was given International Trade and she will be the minister responsible for Asia Pacific Strategy and Multiculturalism. Bill Bennett, MLA for Kootenay East was given the Ministry of Energy and Mines and the task of conducting a core review. Andrew Wilkinson, MLA for Vancouver-Quilchena, another newcomer, will assume the role of Minister of Technology, Innovation and Citizenship Services. Memories of the 2013 election may be fuzzy at best, but there will be plenty happening in the coming months enough to keep the tweeters happily tweeting, bloggers blogging and the Facebookers “liking.” – Roy Ronaghan is columnist for the Grand Forks Gazette

Fun activities, great food: Seniors, this is the place to be! by Kathleen Thomas Silver Kettle Village in Grand Forks continues to keep seniors happy with their full activity calendar and delicious dinner menu.

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

Grand Forks Fire Rescue discusses new truck at open house Thursday z Local Submission

CITY OF GRAND FORKS

The City of Grand Forks is hosting an open house at the city fire hall this Thursday (June 27) to discuss the proposed purchase of a new ladder truck. “The current aerial truck is 20 years old and doesn’t meet the Fire Underwriters Survey of Canada insurance criteria anymore. We’re looking at a new platform ladder truck as a replacement and this will meet Grand Forks’ requirements for the next 20 years,” explains

Dale Heriot, fire chief for Grand Forks Fire Rescue. The new ladder truck can provide enough reach to access high balconies while the truck remains a safe distance from a fire. A platform is also a safer working area for firefighters. As well, higher elevated water streams provide increased access to fires. Grand Forks has more tall structures since the current ladder truck was purchased in 1993, including industrial plants, multi-story apartment buildings and large recreation and institutional buildings. Heriot says the safety of the community is the key factor in the proposed purchase. Grand Forks Fire Rescue operates out of five fire halls

with 14 pieces of apparatuses and three command vehicles. The current ladder truck, and the proposed replacement, will be based at the city fire hall (Station 4) on Second Street in Grand Forks. Again, the open house will be held this Thursday (June 27) at Station 4 (7214 Second Street) from 2 to 5 p.m. Refreshments and snacks will be served. Grand Forks residents can learn more about the proposed truck, why it is needed, costs and next steps. “We encourage everyone to join us on June 27. It will be an opportunity for residents to give us valuable feedback that will be used to guide city council’s decision,” Heriot went on to say.

even more pleasurable. As residents of the Boundary, we’re being asked to think regionally more and more and while the concept isn’t exactly a new way to think, gallery 2 has taken the notion seriously while planning its biannual garden tour. Gallery 2 serves the whole Boundary area when it comes to providing quality art and heritage exhibits and now would like to showcase creativity of another nature – Mother Nature. Gardeners, by their very nature, are big-hearted people, sharing seeds, zucchini, dividing perennials amongst friends and offering advice. These enthusiastic and willing growers have generously consented to share their creative spirit and passion for gardening and we hope you’ll support their efforts on July 6. You won’t be disappointed and remember, “An hour in the garden puts all of life’s problems into perspective.” Tickets are $15 if you are driving or you can pay an

COMMUNITY z EDUCATION

Strukoff rides off into sunset

JIM HOLTZ

For the Grand Forks Gazette

After a 38-year career in education, School District 51 Superintendent Michael Strukoff is retiring. Born and raised in Grand Forks, Strukoff’s relationship with Grand Forks schools has been both long and varied. “When I started school, I was essentially an ESL (English as a Second Language) student. We spoke primarily Russian at home. As a non-English speaking kid, you got streamed right away.” He added with a slight smile, “The expectations the system had of me were not high.” Fortunately, he had several teachers in Grand Forks who were determined to help him excel. By the time he graduated from Grand Forks Secondary School (GFSS), Strukoff was not only a successful student, but a member of the provincial champion GFSS basketball team. The influence of special teachers reverberates in him today, particularly the influence of Fred Walker, after whom the Fred Walker Development Centre is named. “Fred has been very dear to my heart and at the Walker Development Centre, they still talk about the legacy of Fred Walker,” the SD51 superintendent explained. Walker and other concerned teachers provided Strukoff with the encouragement and determination that he needed and they modeled for him the behaviour and attitudes that good teachers must have. After beginning his own career as a teacher of math and science at Vancouver’s Killarney Secondary School in 1975, he and his wife Marilyn decided to return to Grand Forks. He was offered a job teaching Grade 7 at Hutton Elementary as well as teaching Russian language classes, and did that for five years until becoming the vice-principal at GFSS in 1980. He was promoted to principal of Hutton in 1987, where he worked for 18 years before becoming superintendent in 2005. Strukoff also worked from 2003 to 2005 as district principal and operations manager. During this time he oversaw the Phoenix Program of Distributed Learning and the construction of Big White Community School. As a retiring superintendent, Strukoff shows through his comments on the district’s successes the same concern Fred Walker showed him. “We live in what is considered a depressed area economically,” he said. “And so we are supposed to be underperforming and I think we have challenged that kind of trend. Certainly, our achievement levels could be higher but we are very proud of the fact that we are keeping kids in school. By graduating, they get that leg up that, without graduation, you don’t have. And so we’re very proud of the last few sets of statistics that show

we have had a 92 to 94 per cent graduation rate. I attribute that to the close relationship we have with the Boundary Family and Individual Services, Public Health, Children and Family. We meet regularly to try and work together because it is those vulnerable kids that, if you can keep them in school and give them the opportunity to graduate, then have options as they go forward in their lives.” Strukoff is somewhat concerned about the future of public education. “The B.C. government has announced the BC Education Plan and the concept of personalized learning. There is huge potential, but we saw how the Royal Commission (on education, 1988) proposals fizzled. So I am worried, because we don’t even have a foundation built yet. Is there going to be the will, the energy in the system to actually make the change that is required for education in the 21st century?” he wondered. Though he will always be interested in education, Strukoff’s immediate plans after retiring at the end of the month include pursuing his volunteer work as a Grand Forks Credit Union director, doing some home renovations and taking in the Boundary-Kootenay countryside from astride his sleek, blue Yamaha V-twin.

Lapsha ladies celebrate 25th

The local lapsha (Russian noodle) ladies group met on June 17, like it normally does once a month, but this was no ordinary get-together. The ladies were celebrating their 25th anniversary making lapsha together. The group started in 1988 with approximately six to eight women. Then, they would use five dozen eggs to made about 30 bags of noodles. Now, with a group twice as large, the ladies make about 90 bags of lapsha every month. The vibrant group of women seem to thoroughly enjoy working together to make the noodles. In an assembly linetype system, all the ladies have a certain job to do and this makes the group work like a well-oiled machine. The women do tasks like mixing and making the dough, breaking the dough up, putting the dough through manual or elec-

tric noodle cutters and finally, baking the evenly cut dough in to crisp lapsha noodles. One of the members, Anne Ogloff, explained what it is like to be a part of this group. “We work hard, but it’s a social event,” she said. For this day, the women spent the morning cooking and by the afternoon, they made a spread for everyone to enjoy. The meal served is all vegetarian and the group members helped to make the event happen. They even had a special cake made to celebrate the anniversary.

Lapsha is a traditional Russian dish made by many Doukhobor people in the area. After the noodles are made, they are later boiled and butter is added to complete the dish. All of the women volunteer their time to this group, and most of the funds from selling of the noodles go towards various funds in the USCC (Union of Spiritual Communities of Christ) organization. However the group has donated to the Relay For Life, Red Cross, Pakistan Flood Relief and Boundary Hospice to name a few.

Gallery 2 is pleased to host an exhibition of recent naturalist paintings by Grand Forks artist Bev

Harcus, opening on June 29. Harcus has produced artwork for television, and for 10 years created station identification segments for the Knowledge Network, winning a gold award in 2000 at the Promax awards show for broadcast designers. She also taught computer graphics courses at several West Coast universities including the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT). Of her work, Harcus states, “If you look closely at many of my paintings, you will see little faces peering out in myriad fashion. I like to paint these in as a reminder of the multitudes of life forms there are in nature, many existing outside our range of vision, many unseen and simply camouflaged.” The public is invited to the opening reception on Saturday, June 29 from 1 to 3 p.m. Harcus will all be in attendance and available to discuss her work.

COMMUNITY z KOOTENAY DAY TRIPS

Excursion site launches

We live in one of the most incredible spots on the planet. The Kootenay/Boundary is a wonderland of natural treats, fascinating history and funky small-town living. We step out our doors into a place others target as a vacation destination. It’s in that spirit that Black Press newspapers of the Kootenay/ Boundary have launched Kootenay Day Trips. With so much opportunity for discovery in our own backyards, we felt it’s worth sharing with locals and visitors. The Grand Forks Gazette and its sister papers in the region will provide ongoing stories that take a closer look at outings worth experiencing. Hiking, shopping, fishing, camping and exploring will be covered. Golfing, skiing, biking, climbing and any other recreational opportunity you can think of will eventually make it on the list. Museums and historical points of interest are also an important part of the mix. The goal is to create a point of entry for both locals and those who come to explore our region. Each newspaper will be publishing its own stories in print and online under the column header: Kootenay Day Trips. Those adventures will then end up at our new Facebook page, which can be found at www.facebook.com/ KootenayDayTrips or by searching Kootenay Day Trips. One-stop shopping for your next outing. But there’s more. We want you to share your favourite day trips. We understand locals have their own secret spots and we’re not asking you to give those up for mass consumption. But if there’s a day trip you like to take on a regular basis or a place you direct your out-of-town visitors to, we want to hear about it. You can post photos, stories and directions to locations straight on our Facebook page or email us your tales of adventure (editor@grandforksgazette.ca) and we’ll post it online for you. No trip is too small. What seems awesome to you will very likely be just as memorable to someone else. It’s all about sharing experiences that make the Kootenay/Boundary great. So get out there and explore the region this summer. And when you do, don’t forget to tell us all about it.

BOB HALL Nelson Star

Cascade Falls site to behold

ERIN PERKINS

For the Grand Forks Gazette

The churning, rushing water, the sheer raw cliffs and the pristine forest habitat makes a hike to Cascade Falls a memorable and exhilarating experience that shouldn’t be missed. It only takes 15 minutes to hike the short distance into the falls from Highway 3 and 10 minutes from the entrance on Highway 395. The trails, which connect to the Trans Canada Trail System, are enjoyed by everyone from horse riding enthusiasts and mountain bikers to families looking for a short stroll and photographers. Stroll down the old rail trail grade and watch carefully for marmots sunning on surrounding rocks or a deer slipping through the trees. Enjoy the beautiful wildflowers of the region, smell the spicy scent of pine trees and immerse yourself in the beauty of the Boundary. Located on the historic Kettle River, Cascade Falls begins at Cascade Gorge, a section of river that was carved out of the metamorphic rock over millions of years. During the spring and early summer, the

Cascade Falls

gorge is a surging, frothing and impressive display of raw waterpower. In the summer, when the Kettle River’s spring water heights have receded, a series of kettles or bowls, which have been carved into the rock by the rushing water, are revealed. The gorge is best viewed from a converted train bridge located close to the Highway 3 entrance of the trail system. Not only are Cascade Falls a source of natural wonder, they also have historical significance. The falls and gorge were once used to produce electricity and was the location of the region’s first power-generating station. The dam was originally located where the present-day bridge is now over the gorge. It was operated from 1898 to 1922. If you look carefully you can still see the remains of the

power generation station in the form of concrete structures scattered throughout the trail. The second significant landmark is at the viewpoint above the falls. To the left of the trail there is a secondary trail that crosses a concrete bulkhead and up the rocks to overlook the top of the falls. There is also an old control bulkhead, penstock and the remains of the spillways. For the best view of Cascade Falls, follow the trail that is the first trail you come to from the Highway 395 entrance and the second one you come to from the Highway 3 entrance. That trail will take you to the east bluff and Rainbow Rock. If you follow that trail further you can skirt the gorge and view the falls from other vantage points while also enjoying the local flora and fauna. Cascade Falls is located about three kilometres west of Christina Lake. The trail entrance on Highway 3 is located behind the Welcome to Christina Lake sign.

COMMUNITY ❚ PHILANTHROPY

Written by Helen E. Durham with heartfelt thanks

June 21 - 2013 How can I list the people who came in my travail? Who helped me, saved me, comforted me, Well, let’s start with the ones in Trail. Those nurses, doctors, students who kept me free of pain, The therapists and their helpers who made me walk again. Back in Boundary Hospital, the list grows really long, The doctors, nurses, Helen, Peter, Evelyn, and John, Frank and his silly story! And then there’s these two: Les, Lorraine and a monkey dressed in a pink tutu! Pastor Ken, and Sandi, the carpenters who did such a job, There’s Llona, Sarah, Merle, and a wonderful guy called Bob, As I passed him on the stretcher, I gave him a special job, Now, Bob’s a busy farmer, but I said, “Take care of Bill, My knight in shining armour,” And he answered, “You bet I will!”

Thanks to Fred Boyd, manager of the local Buy-Low Foods, the Phoenix Foundation of the Boundary Communities has received a grant from the charitable organization of the late-Paul Newman.

Gazette Editor

Thanks to a nomination from Buy-Low Foods’ manager Fred Boyd, the Phoenix Foundation of the Boundary Communities has received $10,000 from the charitable organization of late-actor Paul Newman. Newman’s Own Foundation provided the grant to the local Phoenix Foundation, which will use the money to update the Vital Signs report, a checkup conducted by community foundations to measure the viability of Canadian communities. Boyd said he was proud because the winning grant went to the local community and he got the inspiration from seeing that certain areas of the community were in need of an assist. Honorary Phoenix Foundation board member Maxine Ruzicka shops frequently at the local Buy-Low and assisted Boyd. “I know Maxine Ruzicka, she shops in our store all the time, and you know, I thought, ‘We need to do something for Grand Forks,’” Boyd said. Foundation chair Christine Thompson said the foundation was thrilled that Buy-Low nominated it and to find that it was named one of the recipients. Re-doing the Vital Signs report was one of the foundation’s goals. “The Vital Signs report was last done in 2009 and it’s basically a discussion and workshops that we have with mem-

bers of the community to see what the community needs for things like health, youth, sports and it helps the foundation in determining where the grants that it provides are going to be most beneficial to the community as a whole,” Thompson explained. Phoenix Foundation director Leda Leander is also executive director of the Boundary Family and Individual Services Society (BFISS) and the Vital Signs report is a valuable source of information to BFISS. “The Boundary Family and Individual Services Society has used the information and priorities gained from Vital Signs to direct our society’s community work as it relates to children, youth and families,” Leander said. “The Vital Signs information and process is invaluable in assisting our community to learn and grow.” Boyd said he knows the money will be put to good use and is glad to contribute to the community. “I’m really happy that Buy-Low has been able to be part of the community because we’re very, very community-minded,” Boyd said. “We are a big part of this community, we support whatever we can.” Boyd was also grateful to a pair of Buy-Low executives. “We’d like to thank Albert Lum (director of merchandising and advertising), who has helped us make the decision for this particular award and we’d like to also thank Jimmy Pattison (owner), who is so community-minded and has given so much back to the community,” he explained.

COMMUNITY What does sediment mean for Kettle? z Kettle River Q&A GRAHAM WATT

Raging, brown water carrying homes, cars and boulders downstream: these images from the flooding last week in Alberta and southeastern B.C. have haunted me the last few days. That brown stuff in those waters, sediment, is worth contemplating in the Kettle River and its tributaries. I’m picking on it this week because it has been increasing in recent years. Sediment is a good indicator of watershed health as it responds to changes in land management and disturbance. It is also associated with other water quality issues and strategies to reduce erosion and would help improve many other aspects of surface water quality. Sediment is a naturally-occurring material broken down by erosion from ice, wind, or water. It ranges in particle size from less than a micrometre (0.000039 inches) for clay mud to greater than 256 mm (10 inches) for boulders. Fine sediment (clay, silt and fine sand) can be carried easily in stream currents as suspended sediment. It can be measured by filtering water or estimated by examining the scatter of light, or cloudiness, in water.

Steep, eroding banks provide coarse and fine sediment to the Kettle River downstream of Grand Forks.

Graham Watt Photo

This is called turbidity. Increases in suspended sediment can degrade fish spawning areas and directly harm fish, mussels, and aquatic invertebrates. Spawning gravels can become ‘clogged’ with silt, reducing oxygen and clean water flow for developing eggs. Fine sediment can also irritate fish gills and cause mussels to stop feeding. Sediment often carries other pollutants (nutrients, heavy metals and bacteria), and makes it harder to treat drinking water from surface sources. There was a small but statistically significant increase in fine sediment (turbidity) between 1990 and 2008 at

the Canada-B.C. water quality monitoring station at Midway. Between 2000 and 2008, counts of fecal coliform bacteria also increased significantly and are above water quality guidelines for drinking water. Larger sand, gravel, cobble and boulders that are moved during higher flows are called “bedload.” Bedload moves slowly through river systems, often taking decades to move from landslides through river valleys. Increased bedload can raise the elevation of the river bed (aggradation) and fill in deep pools needed by fish. It also leads to widening and braiding of the river channel, causing more loss of property and roads along the river. We don’t have measurements of coarse sediments in our rivers, but recent observations of erosion, braiding and widening channels on the Granby River suggest increased bedload and aggradation. It will require further studies to see how the Granby has changed and how landscape changes have contributed. Future columns will look at natural and human-caused sources of sediment in the watershed and potential solutions for reducing erosion that will be considered for the watershed management plan. – Graham Watt is the co-ordinator of the Kettle River Watershed Management Plan for the RDKB, and is working with a Stakeholder Advisory Group from across the region to develop the plan.

NORMAN CHAPMAN

Editor’s note: This is the first of a regular column from the Kettle Valley Food Co-op detailing producers and consumers. Producer members Jamie and Maureen Haynes farm about 485 hectares (1,200 acres) of spectacular high bench land just outside of Rock Creek. Approaching their farmhouse over a two kilometre driveway bearing their name, it’s clear this is no ordinary family farm. In fact, Jamie Haynes’ family has farmed this land since 1902. James Lindsay, his grandfather, registered the land as a farm in 1907. He was known as Pinnacle Jim for his efforts fire-spotting from the highest spot on his land which is a short walk from the farmhouse. Incidentally, the original farmhouse is still in use: a comfortable home, complete with patterned tin ceilings and a free-standing stove for heat. These two very committed farmers explain a philosophy of farming excellence where everything is geared to producing safe, nutritious food for people who are lucky enough to obtain their output. They produce specialty grains (no ge-

JAMIE AND MAUREEN HAYNES

netically modified organisms or GMOs here). Their product line, which can be purchased through the Kettle Valley Food Co-op, includes hull-less oats that can be used in place of rice and wheat berries that make excellent salads. Wheat and rye are processed into flour at Heritage Mills in Rock Creek by Mel Steinke and his family. Their flour is all stone ground, a method of milling that causes the wheat germ oil to emulsify with the flour dust, preventing rancidity. Haynes says that one of the limiting factors to a more widespread use of the whole grains is a lack of awareness of how to prepare these foods. He is a great advocate for the ‘Slow Food’ movement. The Haynes have recipes and advice that they are happy to pass along. One

text that is helpful is The Whole Grain Cookbook by Diane Rich and Dr. Gabe Mirkin. The Haynes are strong believers in locally grown food and farm-gate sales. Maureen Haynes is a force of nature. She bakes pies of many kinds, at last count 27 different fruit varieties. She is capable of organizing large groups of people to work together to can 400 quarts of pears in a day. Apparently much wastage can occur in Okanagan fruit country and she is one of those who pushes back hard. Jamie told us that many farmers are now, like them, in their 60s. They hope there will be a next generation as eager to continue the farming tradition that makes possible our local, secure food supply.

The family of long-time Grand Forks resident Mariana Bryant gave her a 100th birthday party on May 26 in Kelowna. Friends and relatives came long distances to attend this wonderful celebration. Marion, as she is known to most, has had a very full and eventful life. She was born in Grand Forks on May 17, 1913 to Giuseppe and Maria Rossi. In 1921, the family moved to Italy and settled in the Udine region, which is in the north of Italy. There were no jobs for her father so at eight years old, Marion was working at small jobs to help the family. At the age of 13 she was in Venice working as a cook and then went to Milan and cooked for a family. In the meantime, her father had gone to South America, worked and then went back to Canada.

Mariana Bryant

In 1932, he sent for the family and they came back to the land that he had bought in the North Fork area. The land needed to be cleared so Marion learned how to cut trees, pull stumps and then they had to clear it – it was a lot of long hours and hard work. The latter part of 1933, resident Tom Fisher came up to the Rossi farm and asked for one of the girls to help out while his mother was away. The sisters told him that Marion could cook, so she went.

They liked her so much that they asked her to stay and help. Marion and Tom Fisher were married in Colville, Wash. in April 1935 and they had three daughters: Myrtle Marie, who lives in California; Julia, who passed away in April 2009 and Linda, who lives in Vernon. Marion and Tom worked very hard. They had cattle, did farming and had a small sawmill. Tom passed away in January of 1952. The farm and sawmill were sold and Marion, with her girls, moved to Grand Forks. She had a house built and did most of the inside finishing herself and again had a large yard and garden to care for. In 1956 she married Gordon Bryant. They enjoyed 36 years together before Gordon passed away in June of 1992. She kept busy with her garden, caring for her siblings, playing bingo and crib with her many friends and relatives. She moved to Kelowna in 2007 to be closer to her daughter and then in December 2012, she moved to Salmon Arm to be closer to her granddaughter. If you ask Marion what she attributes this long life to, her immediate response is, “Hard work never hurt anyone.” It is a motto that she lives by.

Maxine Ruzicka says goodbye to SD51

JIM HOLTZ

For the Grand Forks Gazette

Maxine Ruzicka, director of instruction for School District 51 (SD51), is retiring after a lifetime working on behalf of students and families. Ruzicka has held her current position since 2005 and always felt that society needed to include and celebrate all of its members, and her work both in and outside the school system is testimony to that. Her involvement with special needs students began when she was only nine. “When I was growing up in elementary school, I had four sisters and one who really needed help with her learning, and I was the designated sibling that did her tutoring after school.” Not that she always wanted to be a teacher, however. After high school, she started university, but then quit to do two years of world travelling. “You know the era back then, we were certain that with the atomic bombs the world was going to end and so let’s just see what the world is about.” After returning home and discovering that jobs were scarce and pay was low and unequal for women, she headed back to university, discovering a program that would alter the course of her life. “A new program really appealed to me at UVIC (the University of Victoria), the Child and Youth Program. There were a lot of masters level university courses on things like learning disabilities, non-

verbal assessment, and neuro-psychology and a 16-month practicum in four different areas,” she said. Her decision to work within the public school system was, she said, the result of an assignment she had with a learning disabled boy. “One of my jobs was to work with this young boy who would have been in Grade 2 or 3 and try to integrate him back into the classroom. He had been living in a residential kind of centre, and you know in those days schools were so unforgiving and so unwelcoming of anyone who was different, and they were so disdainful of anybody who wasn’t part of the system. And so it was that experience that made me want to be a teacher and work on the system from the inside. Really, that has shaped all of the work that I have done in terms of helping our system be a place where all kids belong, regardless of what their challenges are,” she reminisced. Ruzicka has worked outside of the school system as well to develop programs and community groups to help children and families. In the late ‘70s she helped revitalize Boundary Family and Individual Services Society (BFISS) and expand it to include a wider range of services. Bureaucratic changes in government often made acquiring funding for needed programs difficult, she said, but that didn’t eliminate community efforts. When funding was cut off for the Infant Development Program, BFISS began a fundraising program with

MAXINE RUZICKA

concerned parents on their own. “It really embarrassed the government,” Ruzicka said, and suddenly funding was provided. “That’s when we realized the power that we had as a community.” Helping communities utilize their inherent power has been a constant part of Ruzicka’s work. “We only got government to fund programs when we could activate the community. The challenge is initially in bringing people together. The more programs we had, the more money we could apply for because we had more success and credibility.” After a total of 14 years at Perley Elementary, a stint as an exchange teacher in Scotland, and 13 years at Grand Forks Secondary School working with special needs students and as vice-principal, Ruzicka

became the principal in West Boundary serving Big White, Beaverdell and West Boundary Elementary Schools. “This,” she said, “was one of my most rewarding times. I wanted to open up all the schools. As a result, each school set aside a space for family services so that there was a place that any service group could book to meet with community members. About five years after that, the government came up with StrongStart learning so we immediately got a number of programs because we had a place already set aside even in the farthest outreaches in the district,” she said. Ruzicka also found rewarding her work helping to establish the Phoenix Foundation. There were gaps in community programs that could not be filled without a community foundation that provided funding on its own. “We really worked hard at establishing an endowment that would generate dollars that could support additional programming that you can’t get a grant for because nobody’s mandate covers it,” she said. Ruzicka’s future will be less hectic, but not necessarily less active. “I’ll always be a community advocate. But I truly want to take some time off. I don’t want to just fall into doing what I have been doing. Gardening is my No. 1 love and of course growing myself as an individual. I’m always interested in knowledge and today, it’s so readily available.”

COMMUNITY z BUSINESS BEAT

B&F Sales and Service turns 50

City has no immediate plans to move recycle bins

KARL YU

Gazette Editor

For 50 years, B&F Sales and Service has been providing such vehicles and items as all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) and lawn mowers for sale and offering to repair and maintain them too. Ryan Tomilin’s father Bill started the business with his cousin Fred Markin (hence B&F) in 1963 and it wasn’t situated at the current location at 7446 Second Street, but rather around the corner on Central Avenue, in the area where the pawn shop is. “They sold Honda motorcycles, Toro lawn mowers and a couple of years later they built (the Second Street) building and Fred moved to Nelson and my dad kept going with this,” explained Tomilin. Tomilin says that nowadays there are a lot more product lines, more products but there hasn’t been a lot of change. “It’s basically the same. We still sell and repair a lot of different equipment, it’s just more than just motorcycles and lawn mowers. We do everything: there are ATVs now, snowmo-

biles, more lawn and garden equipment, all that kind of stuff,” he said. “Financing now has been a lot more prevalent with people; they don’t just come in with cash anymore.” Tomilin used to head to the store after school as a child and quickly developed a liking for the business. “It’s what I always wanted to do. I love working on this stuff, riding on this stuff. I used to ride motorcycles every day as a kid and then I’d come in to work. I mean I’ve been working probably since I was 12 years old,” reminisced Tomilin. One thing that has changed is the technical aspect of the product that B&F Sales and Ser-

vice sells. “It used to be simple but it’s not simple anymore. Most equipment is more complex and there’s a lot more training you have to go through as it is a lot tougher to diagnose and repair it. Everything’s online now; it’s virtual classrooms. Instead of getting a book, it’s all on a disk or you’re in a classroom with hundreds of other guys on the phone,” he said. Tomilin said Grand Forks is a great place to be and he loves offering the sales and service to the community. “We try our best to have fair prices and good service,” he went on to say.

The City of Grand Forks is seeking input on whether to move the recycle bins by the Second Street fire hall to the landfill. “The only thing is we asked the downtown merchants group if there was any sort of feedback they want to give us on them,” said city CAO Doug Allin. “At this point right now, we’re just having the conversation. There’s really no intention to take them out at this point unless people want to see them go.” Though many find the bins handy for dropping off bottles, cans and paper, there are those, including some in city council, who find the bins to be a troubling eyesore. “I think that we have come to the conclusion that there is no way of keeping that site under control. It’s a mess; it draws a lot of people there to salvage beer bottles and vari-

ous other returnables but we also have a lot of abuses there. People are dumping things like refrigerators and mattresses and all kinds of things that should be taken up to the landfill,” explained Mayor Brian Taylor. Taylor feels that retaining the site in its present location is at odds with the city’s vision for the area. “The last thing we want to do is have something that takes away from the aesthetics of that corner,” Taylor said. “We want to improve the look of that corner.” He added that though council has not reached a final decision, he personally would like to see the recycling site eliminated. “I’m saying, ‘Let’s close it down.’ It is a convenience to some people to be able to delver their glass items and some other recyclables to that site, but in fact we have an extensive recycling program throughout the city,” he said.

On June 15, the Grand Forks Piranhas Swim Club travelled to Trail to compete in its second meet of the year, the Jeli Orell Memorial Invitational Swim Meet. Thirty-four Piranhas were in attendance. Four novices swam in the 25-metre events: Emma Lewis, Alexandra Larson, Renee Lajoie and Ben Podmoroff all enjoyed their races. The Division 1 boys achieved many best times. Kohei Dunnet took off 4.52 seconds in his 50-metre breaststroke, while Robert Wark got a best time in his 50-metre freestyle and 50-metre backstroke. Bryce Findlater supported his team by swimming on the Division 4 boys relay team, which placed second overall.

The Division 1 and 2 girls achieved numerous best times. Dierdre Wark took off 11 seconds in her 50-metre backstroke while Cassiane Larson took off 12 seconds in her 50-metre butterfly. Ashlyn Leroy took off a whopping 21 seconds in her 100-metre IM (individual medley). Sierra Campbell shaved of 20 milliseconds in her 50-metre freestyle. Jayden LeRoy took off a second in her 100-metre I.M and swam a powerful backstroke split time. Jailyn Needoba took off six seconds in IM Grace Soukoreff impressed the coaches with her fast flip-turns in her 50-metre freestyle. Xandria Parker and Caitlyn Black competed against each other in a number of races. The friendly competition yielded respectable times.

Quote of the Week: We live in a Newtonian world of Einsteinian physics ruled by Frankenstein logic. t~ David Russell

Joke of the Week:

The car sped off the highway, wen tthrough the guardrail, rolled down a cliff, bounced off a tree and finally shuddered to a stop. A passing motorist, who had witnessed the entire accident, helped the mriaculously unharmed driver out of the wreck. “Good lord, mister,” he gasped. “Are you drunk?” “Of course,” said the man, brushing the dirt form his suit. “What do you think I am...a stunt driver?”

The 2013 Pharmasave Christina Lake Sprint Triathlon took place on Sunday and it was both surprising, and fitting, that a 13-year-old took top spot. Not only was Trail’s Jackson Konkin the first out of the water for the swimming portion, he finished in a time of 1:19:26, first overall and tops in the male category and amongst his age group (male 13 to 18 years). It wasn’t a breeze for Konkin however, as he said the cycling portion presented a bit of a challenge. “At the end of the (cycling portion), I was fifth off the bike and a couple of people passed me on the downhill. I have a disadvantage when going downhill because I’m light but I fly up the hills,” Konkin explained. “I definitely met my goals and went beyond them. I’m happy with my results.” Top spot amongst females went to Kelowna’s Ashlee Robinson who finished with a time of 1:28:43. Like Konkin, Robinson found the cycling event difficult. “The cycling event is always a tough course,” said Robinson. “It’s a very technical bike race for a sprint. It’s (that) climb that everyone passing through Christina Lake sees and you have to do that four times.” Robinson was happy with her performance and said she will return next year. Grand Forks saw representation on the podium as Scott Stewart, along with Castlegar’s Graham Cocksedge (who teaches in Grand Forks), were the top team. The Cocksedge and Stewart tandem finished with a time of 1:11:09. Stewart handled the swim while Cocksedge cycled and ran. “It was a tough swim,” explained Stewart. “I struggled in the water a fair bit but my goal was to finish in the middle of the pack so I could give Graham a chance to catch everybody. Luckily, I came out towards the front of the pack, so that was good and Graham didn’t have too many people to catch.” Cocksedge said that volunteer and event organizers’ work helped him on the cycling and running events. “It was a beautiful day and course marshaled really well. Everyone was friendly, letting you know where to go ahead of time and they had marked all the bumps on the road, so you could avoid those – it was a well laid out course,” explained Cocksedge. John Mackey, director of recreation and facilities for Grand Forks and District Recreation, said

that 83 adults participated, along with 38 children for the KidSprint event, which took place before the main triathlon. “We were down a little bit this year on the adult side, I think it was about 20 less than last year, but we have more competition in the region. Creston has added an event in June, so people from the East Kootenays might have gone that way but all in all, a lot of new people took part,” Mackey said, estimating that a third were first-time participants in the triathlon. “It’s encouraging and that’s what we’re here for, that’s what this event’s about: first-timers and having fun,” Mackey explained. Results (finish time included) Adult female 1. Ashlee Robinson (Kelowna) 1:28:43 2. Gabrielle Jangula (Rossland) 1:30:59 3. Corina Waage (Castlegar) 1:32:02 Adult male 1.

Life has endless possibilities z From The Monastery

HÜMÜH SKYCLIFFE MONASTERY

Do you ever wonder why your life looks a certain way? How does it come about that each of us lives in a particular place, with certain people who think in fairly similar ways, doing a particular kind of job, and living a lifestyle that we have grown accustomed to? Even if, once in a while, we feel a prompting to break free of old confining routines or situations, somehow, in spite of that surge of possibility, we sink back into the familiar pattern, feeling vaguely trapped and unable to change our circumstances. Maybe we even have a sense that ‘the possibilities are endless,’ and yet, we don’t know how to get from where we are to where we might want to go. In a recent teaching at the HÜMÜH Skycliffe Monastery and Life Science Centre, Wisdom Master Maticintin noted, “It is interesting that we have a sense that ‘the possibilities are endless’—which is true. However, it is not true for most people, because most of us live within the circle of our own karma.” We just keep making the same familiar choices because, at least, we know what they are. In that way, they feel comfortable. Like when we always choose strawberry ice cream because we don’t know if we would like another flavor as much. Not that choosing strawberry is ‘bad’ or ‘wrong,’ but it repeatedly limits us to having just one, particular experience over and over, round and round in the same circle, never allowing some new or unknown possibility to enliven our lives. Maybe, we can recall being drawn towards a particular new situation or experience without really knowing why—possibly a new job, or a

Mary Armstrong (Mollie)

McArthur

Mary Armstrong (Mollie) McArthur passed away suddenly on June 12, two weeks short of l02 years. Mollie immigrated as a baby from Derbyshire, UK to Edmonton where she spent her first 25 years. She moved with her parents to Greenwood for her next 50 years and retired to Victoria for another quarter century. She lived her last year closer to family in Burnaby. Mollie was predeceased by her husband Teddy, daughter Lynda, grand-daughter Danielle, and son-in-law Herb Latreille. She is survived by her children Sandra Latreille, Ross (Sue), Lynn (Jan), Neil and son-in-law Lyle Chiasson. Also left to grieve are her 7 grandchildren, their spouses and 13 great-grandchildren, three nephews and their families, and many extended family members in England and the United States. Mollie’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the light of her life and she enjoyed all visits, their photographs and many drawings and letters which she collected over the years. She never forgot a special occasion for family or close friends as she loved to send cards and letters. A private Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. No flowers by request and donations may be made to Children’s Hospital in Vancouver (www.bcchildrens.ca). Condolences may be offered at www.mccallbros.com. McCall’s of Victoria, BC (1-800-870-4210)

trial exploration of shifts in family responsibilities and relationships. However, instead of going towards this opportunity, we pulled back into the old familiar ‘comfort’ zone. So the possibilities we originally sensed with a quickening of interest, instantly became no longer ‘endless’ for us. Once again, we chose to pull back from even exploring them. Vaguely afraid of what ‘might’ happen, year after year, we stick with the well-known ‘strawberry ice cream’ of life and miss out on the vitality that comes from an experience of knowing that we can go beyond our ordinary existence. If you would like to ‘expand your possibilities’ this summer, you are very welcome to drop by the HÜMÜH Skycliffe Monastery and Life Science Centre and enjoy a couple hours of quiet time on the grounds. The HÜMÜH Monastery is open to visitors every day from 9 am to 4 pm; and on Sundays, visitors are invited to attend the Sunday Service

William

Francis

At this time the family of William Francis regret to announce his passing on June 19th, 2013. Bill was born in Edmonton, Alberta February 6, 1937. Bill will be best remembered for his wit and quirky sense of humor. Bill is survived by his sons Stephen Haines and David Haines and long life partner Wia Francis. Known as a hard and tireless worker and supporter of family, Bill enjoyed fishing, gardening and collecting anything worth value. Bill was always soft spoken and willing to give the shirt off his back to help when needed. He will be truly missed by all who had the honour to cross his path. Let us remember a man for not the great things he accomplished but all the small details that made him truly unique. A small gathering of family and friends will be held at 1363 71st Avenue (tel 250 442 0915) of residence on Thursday, June 27th at 10:00 am.

Pamela (Pam) B. Davies Pamela (Pam) B. Davies passed away on June 16, 2013 in Grand Forks, BC. Pam trained as a Registered Nurse and midwife at the Royal Free Hospital in London, England before moving to Canada with her husband Alan in 1957. Pam and Al moved their family from Vancouver to Osoyoos, BC in 1969. As the kids grew up Pam resumed her nursing career at the hospital in Oliver and then went on to start the Home Support service in the South Okanagan. She was actively involved in the community and served on local health related committees, including the planning and inception of Sage Brush Lodge. In May 1983 Pam received her Health Care Administration Certificate from the University of Saskatchewan. After graduation she and Al moved to Dawson Creek where she pursued her hospital administration career. In March 1987 Pam became the Administrator at Boundary Lodge in Grand Forks. She retired in 1990. Pam shared her commitment to elder care with the Alzheimer Society of B.C., by serving as a regional representative and then on their board of directors from 1991-2001. She also was appointed as the BC representative to the national board of Alzheimer Canada in 1996. Pam was instrumental in founding a Dementia Support Group in Grand Forks. She continued her involvement as a donor and a volunteer, and in 2003 she received the Twigg White Award for her service to the Alzheimer Society of B.C. Pam loved Grand Forks. She enjoyed gardening, friends and walks along the river with her dog TC. She was an active member of the congregation at Holy Trinity Anglican Church and a loving parent and proud grandparent. Pam will be remembered for her empathy and kindness, and her commitment to the people and causes she loved. As an advocate for seniors she embodied care ensuring those under her wing were appreciated for their uniqueness and life time contribution.
