A partnership between the BC Forest Protection Branch and the Town of Golden and Area Emergency Management Program (GAEMP) brought unit crews from the Columbia Fire Zone of the Southeast Fire Centre to Selkirk Heights recently. The aim of the project was to continue working on the Wildfire Prevention Program that was launched in the summer of 2012. Crews were on site from June 17 to 20 and focussed on the removal of dangerous trees and reducing the natural fuel load on the forest floor. The results of the project will help limit the rapid spread of fire in the event of a wildfire and allow faster access for initial attack crews. “Wildfire mitigation work has a long list of benefits to our community,” said Town of Golden Mayor Christina Benty. “This project will help retain healthy trees and other plant species while reducing forest fuel loads. The end results will provide healthy green park land and ultimately help decrease the rapid spread of wildfire.” Steve Lemon is a forestry protection assistant out of the Columbia Fire Zone. He said the work being done on the site has been beneficial for both his team and Golden. “It has been really good. We have been very happy with the level of organization and the amount of projects they have on the table. It is positive for us because it allows us to get some work done and it is a benefit to the town as well,” he said. Lemon said the area they worked in would have been very dangerous if a fire had broken out. “There were areas that you could not see through because of thickness. It was rats nest thick with no sight line through the area in places. This was very bad when we got here. From a fire perspective it would have been a very high intensity before because it was so dense,” he said. Crews limbed out the branches to two metres above the ground. Continued on page 3

Cars splash into summer at the Red Line Car Show on Canada Day Darryl Crane Canada Day will see 9th Avenue North in Golden filled with some of the most jaw dropping cars imaginable when the 6th annual Team Red Line Car Show takes to the street. Jason Tang is one of the organizers for the Team Red Line Car Show. He said he is excited about the event this year. “I am totally looking forward to the event. Every year it gets bigger with more things happening. Having the town involved has been great,” he said. Tang said everyone is happy that the show continues to get larger in Golden. “It is very exciting to see it grow. The event started with 20 or 30 cars. This year we are expecting 100 cars or more.” This year the Golden’s Farmers’ Market will also be running during the event. “It adds to the attraction and will bring more people downtown for the event.

People can now check out cars while buying things at the market. It helps out the community I think,” Tang said. As for how he feels on the day of the event, Tang said it is hard to explain. “It is overwhelming but also great. We feel proud of what has been accomplished. It gives people who love cars a chance to come out and see them,” he said. “People spend a lot of time and money on their vehicles and it is great to come out and show them off.” Tang, who is a lover of cars, said the vehicles that come to the show are for people of all ages. “It is a great family event. It makes some kids very excited. It brings the families out and gives them something to do together,” he said. It should be noted that 9th Avenue North will be blocked off to traffic during the event. The show stars at noon on Canada The Red Line Car Show will be back on 9th Avenue North on Day and runs until 4 p.m.  Canada Day in Golden. Darryl Crane/Star Photo

Question of community in Golden Jessica Schwitek Everyone wants a better, stronger community for themselves and their families, but what does that look like, and how does it get accomplished? More than 35 people went to the Golden Civic Centre on June 18 to examine those questions at a community open house. The participants split up into small groups, and discussed what they loved about their community, what they wish their community had, and what they want their community to be. By the end of the evening it was apparent that many people in Golden share a common vision and hope for their community. It is no surprise that a healthy business environment and a strong economy were near the top of most of the participants’ wish list. Yet there was a great deal of comments about a more collaborative, unified, positive and

vibrant community as well. Needs like more medical services, more childcare, lower property taxes, and wants like an indoor pool, aesthetic improvements of the buildings, and more multicultural celebrations were also identified. The purpose of the evening was to bring people together to find out what their common hopes are, and start the dialogue about how to make those hopes come true. At the end of the night, organizers asked participants to take away one word from the event — collaboration. They believe working together is the only way to accomplish these goals. “This is a very important piece of community visioning you have just participated in tonight,” Karen Cathcart, one of the organizers, told the crowd. “Now we have to reach out.” Everyone left that evening with a challenge — to ask someone what they love about Golden, and start up a positive dialogue.

Prevention project comes to Golden Darryl Crane continued from page 1 “The point is to try and keep the fire intensity on the ground. That is the whole objective of the process. If there is a fire in the area it is not fire proof, but it keeps the fire on the ground and out of the canopy. It lessens the intensity. This makes it travel slower and will allow firefighters to get in to the area and work it,” Lemon said. Jordan Petrovics, manager of recreation services for the Town of Golden, sees the clearing as a way to encourage more use in the area. “From a parks space, there is a lot of potential in this to utilize the space as well as when we hold events up here,” he said. “This initiative is part of a multi-year planning and implementation project focusing on protecting our community from wildfire with 90 per cent of the project funding provided by provincial government grants,” said David Love, manager of strategic initiatives for the Town of Golden. “Employment of BC Forest Service firefight-

ing personnel is a mutually beneficial arrangement between the Town and the Southeast Fire Centre as it helps reduce the cost to the Town of the overall project and maintain the skills of the unit crews when they are not employed fighting wildfires.” Lemon said he thinks this kind of work can have many different benefits for residents. “The first one is the fire management. It allows us to get control of fire before it gets into town. The second is from a wildlife perspective. There are homes here and a large bear population. Now that we have opened up the sight lines parents will be able to see their children running around in the forest. They will be able to see any predators in the area as well. This is something people may not know.” He also said he believes the work being done will help educate people on its importance. “I think there is a big education and people are getting it now. They are looking at the landscape. The real challenge for us is that we have spent a long time saying fire is bad and now we have to tell people that the investment is needed to protect the communities. We are going to burn what we took out to keep the intensity low.”

Collector Licence Plates

It’s show and shine season and the carefully maintained and restored older vehicles are out for our appreciation. I watched one vehicle from the early 50’s pass by me the other day and I noticed that it was equipped with a center brake light and angel eyes in the headlights. It also sported a collector licence plate and that got me to thinking, were either of the two “enhancements” that I noticed allowed on a collector plated vehicle? My understanding of vehicles that displayed collector licence plates was not extensive, but I knew that they were for the pleasure use of motorcycles, cars and light trucks and very few modifications from stock were allowed. To satisfy my curiosity, I visited ICBC’s web site. I found that I was right about the use restrictions, but the list of allowable updates was a lot longer than I would have thought. Safety upgrades such as disc brakes, stainless steel brake lines, seat belts and a theft alarm system are allowed. Obvious ride height changes, non-era correct paint, sound system and colour anodized engine dress up kits are not. For a more extensive information on what is and isn’t allowed on a collector plated vehicle, contact ICBC’s Specialty Licensing Department. Making non-approved modifications after obtaining collector licence plates or mis-using them for business or to and from work may result in loss of collector status and the privileges that these licence plates bring. This gentleman will have to remove the angel eyes for more reasons than one. They are not era correct and are not in compliance with the lighting regulations for that vehicle.

Jessica Schwitek A provincial notfor-profit society that is advocating for a referendum on marijuana regulations is claiming that they have been refused advertising space in Golden. Sensible BC is accusing national advertising company, Pattison Outdoor, of refusing to sell them billboard space. “Pattison Outdoor has several poster spaces in Golden, which is an important region for us,” said Dana Larsen, director of Sensible BC. “It’s frustrating for our political campaign to be blocked by a big corporation that has a near-monopoly on outdoor advertising in our province.” Larson is claiming that Pattison Outdoor has stopped answering their emails, and won’t take their calls. According to Randy Otto, president of Pattison Outdoor, the allegations are just not true. “There’s no reason for us to refuse it,” said Otto. The company asked Sensible BC to submit their ad copy to make sure it complied with Canadian regulations. After receiving it, there was an email sent from the regional representative for Pattison Outdoor to Sensible BC asking them where they

would like to advertise. According to Otto, that email (sent on June 11) was the last of their communication. The Golden Star was contacted by Sensible BC on June 18 regarding the claims that advertising was being refused. “We’ve been trying to buy ad space with Pattison Outdoor for many weeks now, and they just won’t sell us any ads,” said Larson. The billboards, with a design that includes a marijuana leaf, is part of a larger campaign involving online and telephone outreach, trying to get signatures on their petition. Sensible BC will have only 90 days to collect signatures, and are starting that clock in September. If they can collect signatures from 10 per cent of registered voters in every electoral district, then there will be a referendum on the Sensible Policing Act in September of 2014. The act would decriminalize marijuana possession, treat possession of marijuana by minors in the same manner as alcohol, call upon the federal government to repeal marijuana prohibition, and set up a provincial commission to figure out the details around a regulated marijuana market in B.C.

Time to rebuild

Editor’s Note questioned

As spring has rolled into summer, nature has once again shown just how strong it can be with the recent events in Alberta. Rain fell and the waters of many rivers and creeks began to rise until they caused havoc, taking lives and destroying anything that came in its watery path. - My Way The cost of this type of disaster will run into By Darryl Crane the billions of dollars and affect many people in different ways. Thanks to the ease of putting photos and videos online people were able to see the drama as it played out. It is always interesting to see people, for better or worse, head into these areas where logic says you should not be, just so they can post online. The internet was filled with stories of sadness, shock and occasionally relief during the flooding. Perhaps the most difficult thing to comprehend out of this situation was just how massive the devastation was to so many areas. Highways were closed off leaving many people stranded with no direction to go. Towns were evacuated, leaving friends and families doing everything they could to find out if their loved ones had made it out of the areas where the water was rising. Not knowing is one of the toughest things for people to deal with when events like this take place. There is little worse than not knowing and having your imagination fear the worst. Then there were the images coming out of a major city like Calgary. As someone who used to live in the city, seeing the downtown look more like something out of Waterworld than what I was used to was hard to comprehend. So many places, where many of us have been, were under water and there was nothing anyone could do but stay as dry as possible and wait the storm out. Perhaps it is this perceived hopelessness that brings everyone together to help where they can. During the flooding there were many stories about people going out of their way to help those in need. Once again emergency services responded to do what they could. There were stories of people who opened up their own houses to anyone who needed a place to stay until the flood was over. Even some of the animals at the Calgary Zoo found new homes at centres and shelters that opened their door to keep the animals safe. Of course for many people the tough time is still to come. Trying to get home to find out how much damage has been done is a tough drive for anyone. Disasters like this have the ability to distroy possessions. They can take away photographs, homes and sadly lives as well. But once the water drops people make the decision to rebuild and continue on. They have to hope this time the water does not come again.

To the editor So I am confused and wonder if you can help me. I thought the way things worked is someone wrote a letter to the paper and if someone else read the letter in the paper would write a reply for the next edition of the paper. I also thought that newspapers carefully kept themselves separate from governments so they would be free to ask tough questions and print news that governments might not like.

At least that is how I thought newspapers worked. So what is going on when the Golden Star doesn’t wait for the Town of Golden to read a letter and reply but rather replies on the Town’s behalf in the same paper the letter is printed in. Was the Town given an advance look at Bruce Fairley’s letter before publication? If so, is this advance look given to anyone else or just the Town? if the town is given special privileges by the paper, so much for the independence of the Golden Star. With respect to information

Gas Prices To the Editor: I am a concerned citizen of this great nation we call Canada, which every person born in this country owns — not the politicians, but the ordinary person. We own this country, not the oil companies, which the politicians have allowed to rape us over the years. The price of fuel in Canada is astronomical, related to the price of oil on the international market and our high taxes. We can’t seem to do anything about it, but if our MPs and MLAs had any fortitude they would fight for their constituents, but they don’t, knowing that the higher price of oil puts more tax money in their cof-

in the “Editor’s Note” was it provided by a Town official? If so, who? When someone says someone else’s facts are wrong then it should be clear who is say this. If the Town wanted to reply to Bruce Fairley’s letter then why didn’t they write a letter to the next edition of the paper like everyone else? Will the Golden Star be replying to future letters on behalf of other parties or only the Town? John Manuel Golden

fers, and the oil companies who are making record profits. I say to all our MPs and MLAs, show some guts, stand up to your so-called leaders and lower the price of oil, go after the oil companies and lower the tax on fuel. For an oil-producing nation, our prices are too high. We own the oil, not oil companies. You are elected to represent us, and our only recourse is at the polls. Show some fortitude like you promised when you were elected. George Fraser Creston

Aboriginal Day June 21, National Aboriginal Day, is a day for Canadians to come together and recognize and celebrate the unique heritage, cultures, and contributions of First Nations, Inuit and Métis Peoples. Aboriginal people play a vital role in our province’s culture and economy. Through the BC Jobs Plan and the transformative opportunity presented by natural gas, we are partnering with First Nations throughout the province to strengthen their communities, and to ensure that all British Columbians share in the benefits from our natural resources. We must build on our successes and continue to work together toward job creation, non-treaty and revenue-sharing agreements, and negotiating final treaties with those First Nations who want them. I hope all British Columbians will take the opportunity to celebrate the living culture of Aboriginal Peoples. There is a huge diversity of Aboriginal traditions and experiences, each truly unique and inspiring. Premier Christy Clark issued the following statement to mark National Aboriginal Day:

Remember achievements of the past Today, we join with all Canadians in celebrating National Aboriginal Day, and honouring Aboriginal, First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. On this day, we remember extraordinary achievements past and present, and applaud the many aboriginal leaders who inspire their communities, both here in B.C. and across Canada. We also consider the discrimination and impoverishment that Aboriginal people in B.C. still face as they strive to bring positive change in their communities, and achieve real representation in the decisions of government. Aboriginal people across B.C. have come together to share their concerns about the Enbridge Northern Gateway Pipeline project, and the impact this project will have on their tradition-

al territory and on B.C.’s future. We applaud their action, and reiterate our call that the government withdraw from its deal with Ottawa and give First Nations, and all British Columbians, the right to say no to this project that will dramatically affect our future. While we have much to celebrate this year, important work remains to be done. We will continue to call for our government to engage meaningfully with B.C. First Nations to address injustices past and present, and to take real action to support positive growth and achievement in Aboriginal communities. Statement from Adrian Dix and Doug Donaldson on National Aboriginal Day

MLAs return to provincial Legislature The first legislative session of the 40th Parliament begins this week, and the main business of the House will be to pass the provincial budget. That process is referred to as estimates debate. The role of opposition members in estimates is critical as it is our responsibility to question ministers, line by line, on the budgets for their ministries. The BC Liberal budget

will be presented on Thursday, June 27, and is expected to be similar to the budget they first presented before the election in February. At that time, it was considered by most to be very controversial. It is unlikely that the claims made in the budget will be able to withstand close scrutiny. The new cabinet has been announced and the Ministers are now settling into their portfolios. And slowly, we

are finding that ministries are becoming more responsive to requests. This allows my office to work on casework files as we did before the election. The MLA office is available to assist you with issues you have with provincial government services, and we open dozens of new files every week. All contacts with my office are confidential. My staff can provide

information, advice and advocacy on a wide range of provincial issues. As your MLA, my role is to be your voice in Victoria. To be able to do that effectively, I need to hear from you. I value your feedback and the information you can provide. You can reach my office by email at norm. macdonald.mla@leg. bc.caor by phone at 1-866-870-4188.

Golden Moments: Finding inspiration in the Blaeberry Valley Jessica Schwitek Even though Chuck Darbyshire moved to Creston after 47 years in the Blaeberry Valley, there is something about Golden that keeps calling him back. "I always liked this area. I've spent time in other places, but I always come back," said Darbyshire, who still owns 100 acres in the Blaeberry. He tries to get back to Golden once a month, and stays for about a week each time. "I came out of the Yukon and was looking for a job. Someone said in Parson they were hiring people to work at a sawmill, or logging. To make a long story short, I went to Parson and got a job." Born and raised in Saskatchewan, Darbyshire moved up to the Yukon at age 15 to join the army. Although he enjoyed his time there, he soon realized it was not the place for him. However, it was the place where he found a lifelong passion that he brought with him to the Blaeberry. There was a culture of poetry up north at the time. Darbyshire learned about the medium, and melded it with the inspiration he found in the Blaeberry. "The Yukon was a good place to be at that time, because there were a lot of people doing poetry. That helps to get people started," he said. "When I was younger I didn't write what you would call good poetry. It was barn yard poetry."

When he came to Golden he became busy with other things, but found his passion again when his children got older. He soon began writing poetry about his environment. "For 47 years, I lived in the Blaeberry Valley, I grew up there on Moberly Hill. Friends I have many, enemies few. My heart overflows with the good people I knew." His poetry explains why he loves the area so much, and why he and his wife still own all their land in the Blaeberry and continue to visit it, even though they no longer live on the acreage. One of the reasons he keeps the acreage, is because he has another hobby that keeps him busy and happy. “I plant and grow trees. They’re trees of the future, I’ll never see anything out of it. I just always like growing trees, so I come back every spring to do that,” he said. He began planting trees on his property 18 years ago, and loves to come back and see how much they have grown. His trees may continue to grow, but Darbyshire is happy to say that Golden is still the same place he fell in love all those decades ago. "Other than the new people, I don't think Golden has changed much. People are friendly. When I first moved here I thought 'wow, this is a great place. I'm going to work here as much as I can.' So I did. I really like Golden. Chuck Darbyshire holds a book containing some of the poetry he has I guess that's why I keep coming back," written about his love for the Blaeberry Valley. he said.

Turning Back the Pages: The 1916 flood in Golden

- Turning Back the Pages By Colleen Palumbo

As I sit to write this column my heart is sinking for the people here in BC and in neighbouring Alberta who are suffering the ill effects of devastating flooding. Golden experienced the worst flooding in its history in 1916. The Golden Star reported on the event in its June 22, 1916 edition. Space prohibits the full report but it is available at the museum for you to look at if you are interested. “Predictions were realized on Monday morning when the Kicking Horse threw up its heels and went

on a rampage that has demoralized traffic on the C.P.R. for several days, tied up the K.C.R. indefinitely and wrought considerable damage to Golden. The sum total of the damage amounts to flooding many cellar, ruining gardens and in some cases damaging dwelling houses, carrying out the south span of the railroad and traffic bridge, weakening the north approach and pier of the K.C.R. steel bridge. That the damage to the town and bridges was not greater is due to the herculean efforts of the workmen and individuals who volunteered assistance in keeping the immense mass of drift logs from sweeping the piers from beneath the bridges. While the blow was sudden it did not catch the railroad entirely unaware and within a few hours after traffic was interrupted crews were on

the scene and began the battle with the torrents. One of the worst problems that confronted the division officials of the C.P.R. is a washout a mile east of Cloister, where a hole some 20 feet long was torn beneath the rails. Seven train loads of rock were carried to the scene of damage and while much of it went to reinforce weakened fills, a goodly portion was cast into the hungry maw of the river, at the break, to be carried away like pebbles. Crew laboured on anchored booms, toying with death every second to secure a foundation that would permit rebuilding of the fill in the hope of releasing the two passenger trains held at Glenogle. This was accomplished Wednesday afternoon and the first train reached Golden at 19:00. Further east the

damage was equal, if not worse. A pier of the long steel bridge east of Palliser was undermined and the bridge tilted to a dangerous angle. The ling fill at Palliser was badly damaged, and many other fills weakened. The creek at what is known as the McKay slide again unloaded debris on the track and played havoc with the railroad. The first intimation of danger came on Sunday morning when the river slipped over its south bank near the home of Mr. Mackenzie. Not anticipating a further rise, residents of the inundated area made no preparations for moving. Early risers on Monday found the water stealing into the Golden hospital pasture and gradually wending its way southward and westward. By 8 o’clock it became evident that the crest of high water had not been reached and many

to ventilators soon flooded several cellars. Owners of chickens found them cut off in the coops and it was necessary to wade

knee deep in the icy water to rescue them. Would you like to finish reading this story? Drop by the Golden Museum!

Laugh out loud at the Rockwater

Enjoy a howling night of fun

Golden Star Staff Get ready for some laughs at the Rockwater Grill and Bar for the Live Comedy Night on July 2. Four of Canada’s most sought after comedians will be coming to Golden for a some summer chuckles Paul Myrehaug began his comedy career in Alberta. Since moving to Toronto at 22, he has been a part of some of the world’s biggest comedy events, including the Seattle International Comedy Competition, the Great Canadian Laugh Off, Just for Laughs Comedy Festival, and has had his own feature on the Comedy Network. Banff’s Kevin Stobo jumped right into comedy right after high school, winning Edmonton’s Funniest New Comic just a month after graduating. Not only has he graced the stage at some major comedy events such as Just For Laughs and the Comedy Stampede. He is also a host on Global TV’s Inside Entertainment, and Shaw TV’s Where are They Now. He has had

the pleasure of interviewing major stars like Adam Sandler, Eddie Murphy and Ben Affleck. Hailing from Edmonton, Kerry Unger works day job of teaching English in South Korea with his wife. However, don’t be fooled by his everyman image. Kerry dresses up at night, not to fight crime, but to strut around on stages, talk into microphones and shoot mirth into the guts of audiences. He spent most of the last 15 years touring comedy clubs in Canada, including appearances on Just for Laughs, the New Faces of Comedy showcase, and has had his own onehour special on CTV’s Comedy Now!. And finally, Sean Lecomber is a stand up comedian with a unique perspective. His comedy is based on words and story, rather than movement and expression. His interesting take on all topics under the sun will leave you in fits of laughter. He too has been featured on Just for Laughs, and Comedy Now!, and has also played a coveted set on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Tickets for the Live Comedy Night are $10 in advance, or $15 at the door. The show starts at 9 p.m. on Tuesday July 2.

Golden Star Staff Summer Kicks will continue on July 3 when Devon Coyote takes the stage in Spirit Square in Golden. Devon Coyote released his first album Blue, Black and Grey in September of 2011. His lively sound, loyal fans, and extensive touring have earned him stage rights to perform with Juno Award winners Alex Cuba, The Sheepdogs and other industry favourites such as Emerson Drive, Bif Naked, Yukon Blonde and many more. Coyote has played some of Western Canada’s largest music festivals like Keloha and Center of Gravity. He hits the road regularly to rock both cities and ski-towns at legendary venues such as The Horseshoe Tavern, Sugar Night Club, Bud’s on Broadway, and El Moncambo. His independent success includes a 2011 New Artist of the Year nomination from BCIMA, over 180 shows in 2012. He is a multi- instrumentalist gunslinger with an infectious sound and a passionate player and the fun he is having spreads like wildfire into the hearts of every crowd. When this Coyote and his pack come to town, you won’t want to miss them burning down the stage. Playing the in between set on this evening of music will be local favourites Krista & The Krybabies.

techniques, kata (forms) and self defence in partner drills. GSKS is currently in its 20th year of operation in Golden, offering self defence training to students of all ages, this year expanding the programs to juniors who were five to eight years old.   The next semester of   training will begin in September. Watch for announcements on how to get in on this rewarding experience and boost your confidence, self esteem and fitness.

Minor hockey to host first hockey school Darryl Crane The Golden Minor Hockey Association will be hosting a minor hockey school that will give local players the chance to learn about power skating, dry land training and much more. This will be the first time the association has put together a hockey school in Golden. “It is good for early development and also gets players on the ice earlier in the season,” said Tyler Gulliford, who is helping organize the camp. Meghan Jones will be at the camp running the power skating aspect of the event. Jones will bring 27 years of experience to the students. “She is out of Canmore, Alberta. Having a power skating instructor on the ice with them helps their individual skills. Jones does camps all the time and has worked with everyone from little kids to the pros,” Gulliford said.

Ty Davidson, the Golden Rockets head coach, will be running the technical side of the camp while dry land training will be hosted by Shape Up Fitness “It is going to be a full on hockey school. We are trying to get local kids involved and developed. We will have at least one ex National Hockey League player coming to the school with plans being made to bring in more talent,” Gulliford said. In every session there will be a specific skill that is the focus. Skating, puck handling, shooting, and passing will all be covered during the course of the camp. All the information about the school is on the Golden Minor Hockey Association website or a Facebook page at Golden Minor Hockey School. The camp will cost $225 per player with an early bird deal of $175 per player if the player is registered before July 15.
Registration will include a free jersey and players must be independent skaters.

On Sunday June 30, any resident of Golden and Area A is qualified to participate in Community Day, and receive a free sightseeing lift ticket up to the gondola. “It is an annual

tradition that we have created to provide an opportunity for all in the community to come up and enjoy all the mountain has to offer for summer adventure,” said Matt Mosteller, VP of marketing and sales for Resorts of the Canadian Rockies. “For some it may be their first time up and may not be aware of all that is offered in summer at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort. We also feel it is important

to have a day where all in the community can take part.” All you need is proof of residency, such as a driver’s license, and you are eligible for the free lift ticket.

Bear Aware grows to become WildSafeBC WildSafeBC Submitted Kyle Edworthy is the new co-ordinator for WildSafeBC, the organization that many in Golden would recognize from previous years as BearAware. Edworthy came to Golden last summer as an interpretive guide with Boo the bear at Kicking Horse Mountain Resort, fell in love with the community, and returned this summer to coordinate the WildSafe BC effort. Wildsafe BC is an educational program that strives to reduce human-wildlife conflicts throughout BC. The motto of “Keeping wildlife wild - and communities safe,” illuminates the groups belief that “if we can keep wildlife living in the wild we can, in turn, make our communities safer for us,” Edworthy said. How has the year started? So far things have gone very well in Golden. There has been a few reports of bears that moved quickly through town and were gone. That said residents should know this can change at any time, and the biggest attractant for bears in town is garbage. Please keep your garbage stored indoors or in structures which are bear-resistant.

The curb-side garbage program has reduced the accessibility of garbage to bears coming through town, but it is a program that only works if everyone is on board. One person leaving their garbage out overnight creates an attractant which can become a problem for the entire community. “As we move through the summer garbage will continue to be an attractant issue, and other community attractants will become important as well, fruit trees will bloom and begin to produce fruit, a large attractant for bears and other wildlife.” Edworthy said. He will be working alongside community organizations and local Conservation Officers to help keep Golden and wildlife around Golden safe. The WildSafe BC program would like to thank the MOE, the Town of Golden, and the Columbia basin Trust for continuing to sponsor WildSafe BC in 2013. Please report wild animal sightings, property damage or safety issues due to wildlife to the Conservation Officer Service at 1-877-952-7277. You can contact Edworthy at (250) 290-1222. “Also check out our new WildSafe BC webpage at or our local Facebook page Wildsafebc - Golden. I look forward to a successful summer here in Golden,” Edworthy said.

Dolphins continue to perform well at out-of-town meets Cynthia Pfeiffer Dolphins Head Coach After a really hard week of training, the Golden Dolphins headed to Kamloops for their third swim meet of the season. It was the lowest attendance for a meet so far, with only 14 swimmers going, but the Dolphins were still able to shine. Kamloops was the first meet this year that had preliminaries and finals. So not only did our Dolphins shave off lots of time, but every single one of them made it into an A or B final. Outstanding swims this weekend

were made by, Santana Jones on the freestyle relay, Rowan Baxendale swimming with older kids and making it into the B final for 50 backstroke, Brenda Dondaneau making it into the A finals for 100 breaststroke, and Zara Johnson for pulling out two best times after a hard training week. The Golden Dolphins came 8th out of 9 teams an individual aggregates were awarded to: Hannah LaRoy div 5 girl bronze, Zara Johnson div 5 girl silver, and Cynthia Pfeiffer div 8 girl silver. Next weekend we are off to Kelowna which is one of the most competitive meets this year.

Golden Museum hosts Aboriginal Day activities for youth Golden Star Staff The local Metis Nation Columbia River group began planning months ago to get funding from a couple of different sources to have a celebration event in Golden on June 21, 2013 - National Aboriginal Day. The day, celebrated at the Golden Museum included visits from nine elementary classes, who came to view the Metis exhibit.

A special loan to the museum was made by local resident, Tom Jobin, was very popular with the kids. Jobin has his own private collection of native artifacts which he loaned to the museum and came to speak to each of the classes about his prized collection. Beginning at 3 p.m. people started coming to the museum to take in the festivities which included singing, dancing and food. A lot of fun was had by all at the event.

A Barrel of Thanks!

Toastmasters give public speaking tips Jessica Schwitek

Thanks from the Golden Light Horse Club!

Only about 10 per cent of the population loves to speak in front of a crowd, the rest of us need a little bit of help. Members of the Golden Voice Toast-

2013 Property Taxes Are Due July 2nd Please remember that your taxes are due July 2nd by 4:30pm. We must charge a 10% penalty if payment is received after this time. Remember that you can claim your Home Owner Grant if current taxes are not paid in full. Do it online on our website –so easy, it’s ridiculous! Click on the “I Want To” and go from there.

masters spoke to a group of people at the Kicking Horse Country Chamber of Commerce Let’s Do Lunch on June 19 about why it can be so difficult to speak in public, and what you can do about it. Toastmaster Delanee Jmaiff explained that roughly 10 per cent of the population loves public speaking, roughly 10 per cent are terrified of it, and the other 80 per cent fall somewhere in the middle. She told the story of her niece in Grade 7, who has such a bad anxiety disorder she still hasn’t spoken a

single word in school. “Some of us don’t have a voice,” said Jmaiff. “It is important for the rest of us to speak for them.” The fear of public speaking is very primal, which is why it can be so difficult to overcome. But Toastmaster Denise Darbyshire, who has come a long in overcoming her fear since joining the group, talked about some tips that could make it a bit easier. “Know your topic and practice it,” said Darbyshire. “Keeping on topic will keep people’s attention.” Consciously making an effort to breath can

also make a huge difference. Not only does it give you time to collect your thoughts, it also increases blood flow which calms your nerves, and can even reduce blushing. The nervous energy, however, will not go away entirely. It can sometimes be useful to channel that energy into gestures. And don’t forget to make eye contact. If you want to learn more about how to improve your public speaking, check out a Toastmasters meeting. They meet every Thursday night at 7 p.m. at the College of the Rockies.

Doing their best to serve at Mountainiron Contracting Inc. Darryl Crane Mountainiron Contracting Inc. was built on experiences in the construction industry and has been serving the people in Golden for the past three years. “This is our third summer. We can do pretty much anything construction related as far as labour or machinery,” said Ryan Gallagher, owner of Mountainiron Contracting Inc. He has spent a great deal of time over the past three years dealing with work on the highways around Golden. The company has also worked with the local cycling club on trails. Mountainiron Contracting Inc. provides several options to fulfill most excavating, construction or labour related needs. Gallagher said the idea of the business was to provide the ability to take care of many smaller jobs that may occur in town. “Most of my work has started out in town and then I head out of town. You can call me up and I will show up to do whatever job that has to be done. If

it is for only two hours then that is all you will be charged for,” he said. “We use a versatile machine that can take care of many different types of jobs. Because it is on tires is does not effect the terrain as much. A Bobcat tears up the ground on every turn. The impact on your land will be limited.” Gallagher said the company is based on the belief that their customers’ needs are of the utmost importance. To do this he can also be hired out as an equipment operator or skilled labourer and offers free deliveries in Golden. The company also uses a trailer at a work site so they do as little damage as possible to lawns and gardens. “With my trailer I can drive in and excavate their lawns without the material going on their lawns. I can drive away with it and then dig it out of the trailer and put it right back into the spot,” he said. “It is about being as efficient as we can. We do not want to waste the client’s time. We come in and get organized and go to work.” To learn more about Mountainiron Contracting Inc. call 250-344-0220 or Pictured above are the owners of Mountainiron Contracting Inc., Lyane and Ryan Gallagher.

In Loving Memory of Maria De Sousa August. 29, 1931- June. 25, 2009

If roses grow in heaven, Lord, Please pick a bunch from us. Place them in our Mother’s arms, And tell her they’re from us. Tell her we love her, and we miss her so And when she turns to smile, Place a kiss upon her cheek And hold her for awhile. For she’s our special angel in heaven Watching over her family once again. Four years have passed since you left us Our hearts still ache in sadness And tears still flow. Memories of you are all we have The pain of losing you will never go away What it meant to lose you, No one will ever know. You were a precious gift from God above, So much beauty, grace and love. You touched our hearts in the most special way. Remembering you is easy, We do it every day Forever loved, never forgotten Querida mai, querida vovo

Golden Legion invites the community to celebrate Legion Week Legion Branch 122 Submitted The Golden Legion was started May 28, 1931. It’s primary aim at that time was to support their veterans and families by making all efforts to improve lives of veterans and ex-service members. As it was then, it has continued to uphold that support, and evolve with the continued needs of our military and our veterans. In the community, the Legion’s function also includes supporting their communities, various children’s sporting activities, and the Cadets. Remembrance Day contests are held each year for students, who wish to submit stories, artwork, or poems and videos that reflect the

sacrifices given by our military in conflicts, sacrifices that continue today, to make us a free and strong nation. The Legion holds several types of fundraising events, through auctions, meat draws and contests. All monies derived from gaming are all returned to the community. The Golden Legion is currently working to support their community; in the last 10 years fundraising efforts and gaming alone brought approximately $145,000 back into the community. Activities supported by Poppy Trust Funds include: assisting needy veterans and exservice members and their families; providing bursaries to the children and grandchildren of veterans

and ex-service members; transport and related services for veterans, seniors and disable persons. Who are our Golden Legion Members? Our Legion members make up a wide variety of people. Our Canadian veterans and allied veterans, RCMP, members of the CPR, general public, and even a Cold War spy and author. All of these people have unique and interesting stories to tell, but more importantly is their strong comradeship and their community. What can I do? By joining the Golden Legion, you are helping to support your veterans and your community. Membership to the Golden Legion is $50 per year. Our members all

pledge to support and uphold the “Traditions of the Legion,” and support the Poppy Campaign. Anyone can join. What is the benefit to me? Serving and supporting your community and it’s veterans. You will have the oppor-

tunity to grow within this great organization. The Legion needs members who can take on the challenge of leadership. If this is where your interest lies, you can become involved by serving on the Branch Executive. You may even aspire to the National Board.

The Legion has developed a relationship with a number of corporate partners to provide products and services to its members. Only Legion members are entitled to the benefits offered. The Golden Legion has a variety of functions weekly and

throughout the year such as Friday and Saturday meet draws, Father’s Day Golf Tournaments, games, music sometimes, and we have a licensed lounge where members can enjoy dances, barbecues, entertainment and a host of other special events.
