Hit the trail this summer with Charlie Horse Claire paradis Arrow Lakes News

Coming the other way (the not from town way) to Charlie Horse Shoeing and Equine Adventures where we would find Charlotte Ruse was a bit of an adventure, one that took a turnaround and a little backing up. But once we were on the driveway (is this the way? do we turn left or right?) it was obvious that we’d arrived in horse heaven. Turning the truck down the gentle slope off Crescent Bay Road that opened up into a farmyard with hay stacked in a giant hill of white plastic marshmallows next to a barn and paddock of horses, Charlotte Ruse and three horses greeted us, as did the two dogs Luna and Dakota. And Spud the pig came out too and obliged us with his trick to “sit” for a treat. Unlike many businesses in town, Charlie Horse’s trail ride was unaffected by the morning’s power outage, and up on the farm you couldn’t tell the difference between having the grid switched on or off. Ruse and her son Hunter waved as we climbed out of the truck and walked over, ready for our adventure. Neither my riding companion nor myself had seen or been on the back of a horse for years, although my pal’s most recent equine

experience had been during a trek in Mongolia only half a dozen years ago. We really were both virtual newbies, but both eager to get back in the saddle again. Chico, Brian and Chester were already geared up and ready for our newbie new butts, and after a quick assessment of who felt comfortable with what (I took Brian and my companion chose Chester, who had a reputation as a lazy walker, but more on that later), we clambered up. Goal-oriented Brian was soon walking over to the paddock to visit with his buddies, with me seated in his saddle like a sentient sack of potatoes. Fortunately, Ruse caught up with us and herded us back like spastic cats to where my fellow equi-naïve adventurer was sedately seated on Chester. “’Whoa’ is the first thing I teach,” said Ruse, although Brian had reacted to my pronunciation of the word as though it were some foreign phrase he didn’t understand. Ruse gracefully pulled herself up onto Chico and we were off, like a shot of meandering horses. Chester immediately tried the paddock-visiting manoeuvre too, but with a little prompting we were on the road. For those of you who know, riding a horse isn’t about holding on for dear life. In fact, horses are very sensitive and can suss a stressed-out rider in a moment. Good rider and horse combos are like centaurs, a smooth

Balance, grace, and wordless communication: these are qualities my friend and I were generally lacking, and Ruse kindly let us know when we were lurching over to one side, or hauling up on the reins rather than straight back.

Power outage decision irks local business owners Claire paradis Arrow Lakes News

The recent power outage in Nakusp scheduled for Friday, July 5 to was not without controversy. The BC Hydro-planned outage was held between 7 and 11 a.m. so that markers could be placed on the line across the highway between the substation and the Arrow Lakes Hospital to increase visibility of the line for helicopters traveling to and from the hospital. Many locals were caught by surprise by the announcement, including Nakusp mayor Karen Hamling. When BC Hydro representative Mary Anne Coules was queried about the process leading up to the decision for the outage to take place on a Friday morn-

ing during the summer’s peak visitor season, she told the Arrow Lakes News that the date had been decided upon with consultation of local politicians. Coules said that New Denver mayor Ann Bunka and Hamling had both been approached in May about holding the outage in June 8. Because the named date was the day for grad celebrations in Nakusp, Hamling had told Coules it wouldn’t work. Coules then asked about July 5 or 6 as possible dates. Hamling told her that July was tourist season, and asked if there was a reason the outage would be scheduled for a Saturday. The BC Hydro representative responded that she was aware July was peak season in town,

and asked if there were any specific events scheduled for either day. Word was forwarded on from the tourist information centre that there were none known about, other than Parkour on Friday afternoons and that an evening outage wouldn’t be good for business at the local pubs. Mayor Hamling received an email on June 25 that the upcoming outage was planned for the morning of July 5. The notice surprised Hamling, who would have preferred a time not during the height of tourist traffic through town. “If I had to choose a date, it would not have been in the summer during the hot weather and the busy time of year,” said Hamling in an email to Coules disput-

ing that the date for the power outage had been chosen or approved by the mayors in any way. In response to queries about how the decision was made, Coules replied that she “did receive confirmation from all of the Mayors that there were no significant community events planned for Friday, July 5. In addition, the outage was originally planned from 8 a.m. to noon and we later rescheduled the outage from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. to help minimize any impacts.” The BC Hydro representative also said that for public safety reasons it was critical that the work be completed as soon as possible, and that Hydro did our best to accommodate the three affected communities of Nakusp, New Denver and Silverton.

Local merchant Marie Wrede, co-owner of Little Mountain Outdoor Gear, was not impressed. “This is not acceptable,” said Wrede. “I think a lot of people feel the same way.” The business owner said the loss of sales due to the power outage was “pretty substantial” and said that when she called Hydro, she found they were “not helpful.” Wrede became aware of the planned outage three days before it took place when she heard it on the radio, and subsequently saw a poster at the post office. That’s not good enough, she told the Arrow Lakes News, particularly when the lion’s share of a year’s earnings takes place during a few short weeks in summer.

RCMP files: furniture theft, impaired drivers, keyed car

Claire paradis Arrow Lakes News

The owner of a house on Bayview Road came home to discover furniture and appliances missing from her house on July 2. Suspecting a former tenant, she contacted the RCMP in Nakusp. Four days later, she called the RCMP to let them know someone in the community had contacted her about

the missing household goods. The items, valued at more than $5,000, were found with the help of community members, and police are recommending charges of Theft Over $5,000 to the Crown. The suspect in the alleged theft is known to police, but where he is currently is unknown. Over the long weekend between June 28 and July 1 the Nakusp RCMP receive three com-

plaints from the public of possible impaired drivers. After each reported sighting, police tracked down the suspect vehicles and confirmed that the drivers were impaired.  All three drivers were issued Immediate Roadside Prohibitions (IRPs) for operating a motor vehicle with a blood alcohol level over the legal limit, which means the drivers are subject to an immediate 90 day driving prohi-

bition, a 30 day vehicle impound, and additional fees and driving regulations set out by the Superintendent of Motor Vehicles. The Nakusp RCMP would like to thank the community of Nakusp for helping take impaired drivers off our streets. The long weekend also contained some mischief in Silverton, where a Dodge Durango parked on Hunter Street had been keyed at

some point over the long weekend. This was second time the vehicle has been keyed, said the vehicle’s driver. If you have any information about the keying, please contact the Slocan Lake RCMP or Crimestoppers. With files from Ryan Fehler, Nakusp RCMP

Nakusp targets community living employment Contributed by Tim Sander

Nakusp Hot Springs washrooms got a much needed makeover last week, thanks to a unique partnership between the Village of Nakusp and the Kootenay Society for Community Living (KSCL). Mike Waskul (pictured) was contracted to repaint the aging washroom block, putting his skills with a paintbrush and roller to good use. Pat Farish, manager of Nakusp Hot Springs and Tim Sander, Customised Employment coordinator for KSCL, worked together

to provide this opportunity for Mike, who is currently looking for work. “Mike did an amazing job of the painting. He transformed the drab and dreary walls and ceiling into a clean and new environment,” said Farish. “The Village is very pleased with the work he has done and look forward to being able to provide Mike and others like him with more opportunities.” “Customised Employment is all about discovering skill sets, identifying the needs of the employer and putting them

together. There are usually a few hoops to jump through, but where there is a will, there is a way,” said Sander. “By far the largest unemployed sector in society are the disabled. They have skills and talents just like the rest of us. Its our job to enable them achieve their potential and I look forward to working with other employers in the area. The Village of Nakusp have done an amazing job in helping us move Mike forward.” For more information please contact Tim Sander at 250-2651471 or

“Open house” at Lemon Creek pit house village

Students take notes at the Lemon Creek site. Photo courtesy Rory Lindsay Contributed

Students from Hamilton and Selkirk Colleges are at the important Slocan Narrows Archaeological Site carefully excavating in one of the oldest and largest pit houses on the Interior Plateau. Under the direction of Hamilton

College’s Nathan Goodale and Alissa Nauman, the 11 students and two teaching assistants have been on site since June 10. This is the fourth field school to be held at this site, the others taking place in 2000, 2009 and 2011. Radio-carbon dating of a piece of charcoal recovered from this pit house in 2009 indicates that it burned down about 2,750 years ago. To put that date in perspective, that makes habitation of this pit house contemporary with the founding of Rome by Romulus and Remus in 753 BC. Other than its unusually large size, that is all that is known about the pit house at this time. Excavations this year are intended to expose a portion of the floor to search for clues as to how many people might have lived in it and what activities took place inside the house. Was the pit house occupied only once, or was it rebuilt several times? Was there a ceremonial aspect to its use or was it strictly residential? These and many other questions may be

answered by what is found this year. On Saturday, July 13, the archaeological field school is hosting a public “open house” at the site with small-group informative lectures by Nathan Goodale followed by guided tours of the site. The open house takes place between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. with new guided tours beginning every 20 minutes until 1:30 p.m. This event will be interactive with lots of opportunity to ask questions. A suggested donation of $10 will cover a BBQ lunch to be served by the Slocan Valley Heritage Trail Society with proceeds going to cover interpretive signage and other enhancements along the Slocan Valley Rail Trail. To get to the site, park at the Slocan Valley Rail Trail’s Kennedy Road (Lemon Creek) trailhead and walk north along the level, scenic rail trail. Allow 15 minutes from the time you park to walk to the site. Further information may be obtained at 250-3552397.

The nature of floods Science Matters By David Suzuki

News of the devastating floods in Alberta hit Canadians hard. We’ve all been moved by extraordinary stories of first responders and neighbours stepping in to help and give selflessly at a time of great need. As people begin to pick up their lives, and talk turns to what Calgary and other communities can do to rebuild, safeguarding our irreplaceable, most precious flood-protection assets should be given top priority. The severe floods in Alberta used to be referred to as “once in a generation” or “once in a century”. As recent floods in Europe and India are added to the list, that’s scaled up to “once in a decade”. Scientists and insurance executives alike predict extreme weather events will increase in intensity and frequency. Climate change is already having a dramatic impact on our planet. Communities around the world, like those in Alberta, are rallying to prepare. While calls are mounting for the need to rebuild and strengthen infrastructure such as dikes, storm-water management systems and stream-channel diversion projects, we’ve overlooked one of our best climate change–fighting tools: nature. By protecting nature, we protect ourselves, our communities and our families. The business case for maintaining and restoring nature’s ecosystems is stronger than ever. Wetlands, forests, flood plains and other natural systems absorb and store water and reduce the risk of floods and storms, usually more efficiently and cost-effectively than built infrastructure. Wetlands help control floods by storing large amounts of water during heavy rains – something paved city surfaces just don’t do. A study of the Upper Mississippi and Missouri Basins showed wetland restoration would have provided enough flood water storage to accommodate excess river flows associated with flooding in the U.S. Midwest in 1993. Research done for the City of Calgary more than 30 years ago made similar suggestions about the value of protecting flood plains from overdevelopment. When wetlands are destroyed, the probability of a heavy rainfall causing flooding increases significantly. Yet we’re losing wetlands around the world at a rate estimated at between one and three per cent a year. By failing to work with nature in building our cities, we’ve disrupted hydrological cycles

and the valuable services they provide. The readily available benefits of intact ecosystems must be replaced by man-made infrastructure that can fail and is costly to build, maintain and replace. Protecting and restoring rich forests, flood plains and wetlands near our urban areas is critical to reduce carbon emissions and protect against the effects of climate change. Nature effectively sequesters and stores carbon, helping to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It also regulates water. Forested basins, for example, have greater capacity to absorb water than clear-cut areas where higher peak stream flows, flooding, erosion and landslides are common. How can we protect ecosystems rather than seeing conservation as an impediment to economic growth? The answer is to recognize their real value. The David Suzuki Foundation has evaluated some of Canada’s natural assets. This approach calculates the economic contribution of natural services, such as flood protection and climate regulation, and adds that to our balance sheets. Because traditional economic calculations ignore these benefits and services, decisions often lead to the destruction of the very ecosystems upon which we rely. Unfortunately, we often appreciate the value of an ecosystem only when it’s not there to do its job. Cities around North America are discovering that maintaining ecosystems can save money, protect the environment and create healthier communities. A study of the Bowker Creek watershed on southern Vancouver Island showed that by incorporating rain gardens, green roofs and other green infrastructure, peak flows projected for 2080 from increased precipitation due to climate change could be reduced by 95 per cent. Opting to protect and restore watersheds in the 1990s rather than building costly filtration systems has saved New York City billions of dollars. Intact ecosystems are vital in facing the climate change challenges ahead. They also give us health and quality-of-life benefits. Responsible decision-making needs to consider incentives for protecting and restoring nature, and disincentives for degrading it. As Alberta rebuilds and people begin to heal from the flood’s devastation, it’s time to have a discussion about adding natural capital to the equation.

Minister of Health speaks on Marihuana Regulations Contributed by Leona Aglukkaq, Minister of Health

While the Courts have said Canadians must have reasonable access to a legal source of marihuana for medical purposes, the Government of Canada believes this must be done in a controlled fashion in order to protect public safety. On June 10, the Government of Canada announced the new Marihuana for Medical Purposes Regulations (MMPR). These regulations are intended to provide reasonable access for those Canadians who need marihuana for medical purposes while protecting public safety. When the Marihuana Medical Access Program was introduced in 2001 in response to the Court decision, the number of people authorized to use marihuana for medical purposes stood at less than 500. Over the years that number has grown to more than 30,000. As a result, costs to taxpayers have continued to climb as Health Canada heavily subsidizes the production and distribution of marihuana for medical purposes. As well, under the current program, Canadians can apply to grow marihuana for medical purposes in private homes or buy from Health Canada. The ability for individuals to produce marihuana in private homes has added to public health, safety and security risks as criminal elements have abused the system.

The government’s goal is to treat dried marihuana as much as possible like other narcotics used for medical purposes under the MMPR by creating conditions for a new, commercial industry that will be responsible for its production and distribution. Health Canada will return to its traditional role as a regulator. Licensed producers will provide access to quality-controlled marihuana for medical purposes, produced under secure and sanitary conditions, to those Canadians who need it, while strengthening the safety of Canadian communities. In line with other controlled substances, personal and designated production will be phased out. This will reduce the health and safety risks, such as fire and toxic mould hazards, to individuals and to the Canadian public, while allowing for a quality-controlled and more secure product for medical use. Under the new regulations, licensed producers will have to meet extensive security and quality control requirements including requesting security clearance for certain key positions, and meeting physical security requirements (such as a security system that detects intruders). Licensed producers will also be subject to compliance and enforcement measures, and dried marihuana will only be shipped through a secure delivery service directly to the address the client has specified.

Taken together, these measures will reduce the risks of diversion of marihuana to illicit markets. Under the MMPR, the fundamental role of health providers does not change. The responsibility to assess a patient and decide on appropriate treatment continues to rest with health care practitioners. The MMPR have created a streamlined process for those needing access to marihuana for medical purposes, eliminating the need for individuals to share health information with Health Canada. To help support health care practitioners in making decisions about whether marihuana is an appropriate treatment option, an Expert Advisory Committee was created to assist in providing health care practitioners with comprehensive, accurate and upto-date information on the known uses of marihuana for medical purposes. More information is available on the Health Canada website. The government understands the need to continue to provide reasonable access to a legal source of marihuana for medical purposes and the new regime does so in a manner that is consistent with the way access is provided for other narcotics used for medical purposes. This more appropriately balances the needs of patients with the health, safety and security of all Canadians.

Nutritious Swiss chard hearty and delicious

Trisha Shanks The Veggie Patch Most commonly referred to as Swiss Chard, this leafy green vegetable is related to beets, but has been developed to maintain most of the nutrition ‘above-ground’ unlike its deep purple cousin. Heartier than spinach and not as tough as cabbage, chard makes a great side to meat and potatoes.

There are dozens of ways to prepare and serve it. Mature chard has a rigid stem and broad, stiff leaves. For this reason it is normally always cooked, and it is baby or immature chard that is eaten raw. Chard comes in a variety of colours, and is another of those ‘leafy greens’ which contain high amounts of anti-oxidants. They are low calorie, low fat, high fibre and high in calcium and other nutrients making leafy greens high on any nutritionists’ lists and we just don’t ever seem to eat enough of them. I have always liked Swiss Chard steamed and served with fresh squeezed lemon or a bit of melted butter. I like the mild, slightly bitter flavour and don’t find it needs a lot of masking to make it palatable. The leaf can be trimmed from the stalks and you can make two different dishes from the two. Leaves can be prepared whole, torn

250g tub ricotta 4 eggs 75g parmesan, grated 3 or 4 ripe tomatoes, thinly sliced extra-virgin olive oil 1.Heat the oven to 220C/425F. Melt a knob of butter in your biggest frying pan then fry the chard for 5 minutes or until completely wilted and tender. Add the garlic, cook for 1 minute, then season with the nutmeg, salt and pepper. Press against the pan with a wooden spoon to squeeze out any excess juices and pour them away. 2.Meanwhile, beat the ricotta with the eggs and most of the parmesan. Season, then stir in the chard. Pour into a baking dish, lay on the tomato slices and sprinkle on the rest of the cheese then drizzle with a little oil. Bake for 10-15 minutes until just set in the middle. Broil for 2 minutes until golden. Serve with a crisp green salad.

or chopped, and the stalks can be roasted with some olive oil and parmesan cheese as they take longer to cook or could be discarded if they are not your taste. A great way to prepare and prolong the freshness of any leafy green is to remove any dark, soft or yellow portions, rinse well in cold water and then pat dry and store in a perforated or sealable plastic bag with some paper towel. Local chard will keep in the fridge for up to a week this way until you are ready to use it. Some of the most popular methods of cooking chard include boiling, steaming, adding it to stir fries, or roasting the stems in the oven.

July Trout Lake Tracker: Bring on summer!

Linda Wall Trout Lake Tracker Wildlife and visitors are making their way to their favourite R&R locations around the province, and Trout Lake is no exception. Lake levels remain high so there’s not much beach to park your chair on just yet, but recreational activities are gathering momentum as the weather has finally popped into summer mode. Don’t forget the ultimate summer combo - sunscreen and bug spray! The Trout Lake Com-

munity Club (TLCC) held an Extraordinary meeting on Saturday, May 18. With another good turnout of 34 members, President John Wall tabled old and new business matters, some of which were followed by related discussions. A proposal was submitted to the membership to consider building a roof over the back porch and storage door at the Community Hall. Letters have since been sent out to potential contractors to bid on doing the work. If you or anyone you know would like to participate, please contact John or Linda Wall at 250-369-2222 or for details about the project. The closing date for submissions is July 31, 2013. On a soggy morning in June, the Arrow Lakes Historical Society, from Nakusp, stopped in to visit Trout Lake. Joined by Linda Wall,

THANK YOU The West Kootenay Trappers Association would like to thank the following businesses for their generous donations to our annual rendezvous & fundraiser;

Overwaitea, Main Jet, Mawson Sports, Hewats Repairs, Excel Tire, Kal Tire, CMH/K2 Lodge, NAPA, General Store, Nakusp Home Hardware & Home Building, Carson’s Corner, Marvin’s Small Motors, Sun Valley Gas, Touch of Fashion, Justamere/Sterling Simpson and all our members who brought donations and helped with organizing and setting up. We apologize if we missed anyone on the list, all donations are greatly appreciated!

Rosemarie Parent guided her group of 17 history buffs as they explored the cemetery and took a wander through the townsite. Rosemarie kindly donated to TLCC a schematic of structures and a corresponding document of the Trout Lake townsite dating back to 1930. Both are on display at the community hall. She also presented TLCC with a signed copy of the ‘Circle of Silver’ as a thank you for their use of the town’s facility. The Annual General meeting of the Trout Lake Community Club was held on Saturday, June 29, at which 23 members attended. As a special resolution is required by a vote to allow any increase in the TLCC membership fees, there will be no increase from the current cost of $5 per person for 2013. If accepted, the increase to $7.50 each will be in place on July 1, 2014.

Elections were held for the TLCC Director positions. John Wall stepped down as president after eight terms. He noted that his mandate was to revitalize the community hall and that task has been completed. John thanked the membership and the directors for their support and their involvement with TLCC, and has chosen to continue as a director. Carrol Christiansen has taken on the president’s position and the remaining board members will stay on for another term. Linda Wall volunteered to continue as Community Hall and Membership Directory Coordinator. A nomination was put forward to select Ken and Carrol Christiansen as TLCC Lifetime Members, which was unanimously accepted. Ken served as TLCC President from 1984 to 1989 and is currently the volunteer Trout Lake Fire Chief. He

Thank You We would like to send our deepest gratitude to this wonderful town. Thank you so much for the kind and caring words expressed about my husband, father, grandfather and father-in-law, Rick Cound. To our incredible hospital staff, nurses, and Dr. Lea, we will never forget your kindness and love shown to us, and to Rick. Thanks also for the food, cards and all those hugs, we all like hugs. Hopefully Rick’s smile will rub off on me and you will still see him smiling back.

If Tears Could Build A Stairway, And Memories A Lane, I’d Walk Right Up To Heaven And Bring You Home Again Love from Linda, and the Cound/Hascarl families.

and Carrol are also regularly involved with community projects and events. Congratulations, Ken and Carrol! Trout Lake is awaiting the assembly and placement of the Trout Lake welcome sign, due to be completed this summer. A crew will assist John Todds, who constructed the sign, in setting the concrete pillars and raising the hand-carved wooden sign. A fundraiser Karaoke and Dance night took place on June 29 at the Community Hall. Many in the crowd of around 30 people eagerly showed off their talent behind the mic and kept the dance floor hopping. Thanks go out to Keith Thomas and Krys Barnwell for organizing the successful event, and we hope they are open to more ‘talent nights’ during the summer months. Trout Lake BC Internet Society (TLBCIS) Pres-

ident, John Wall reports that an inspection of the Dillon Mountain repeater site has been completed, and there are some small maintenance issues needing attention this summer. The Beaton site is operating very well, while the Pingston site is to be inspected in early July. Mark your calendars! It’s time to rummage through your attics, basements and sheds! The TLCC Garage and Bake Sale will take place at the Trout Lake Community Hall during the August long weekend, Saturday and Sunday 9 ‘til noon. If you have any items to donate or could volunteer some time, please contact Linda at 250369-2222 or LindaWall@ No electronics or clothing, please. All proceeds support community projects and events.

Canada Day proves Canadians know how to have fun

Jacob Henschke covets the classic cars at the July 1 Show’n;Shine Photo courtesy Angus Schroff least one person has asked me what I angus schroff was going to do on July 4. Arrow Lakes News Disregarding their temporal closeness, they’re actually very different. Over the years, Canada and the As you probably know, Canada Day United States of America’s stories celebrates the day we became a nation, have been intertwined; brothers born the day the British North America Act from a land across the sea, sometimes was signed: July 1, 1867. That signing warring, sometimes peaceful. Both began a long process in which the Britseeking freedom from their overbear- ish government relinquished its coning parent, though in different ways. trol over Canada, ending in 1981 with It fits, then, that by some coinci- the Canada Act. Along with the Candence, Independence Day and Can- ada Act came a name change; what ada Day fall a mere three days apart. was Dominion Day before became They’re close enough together that at Canada Day as we know it today.

Independence Day is quite the different story. It celebrates, with its famous fireworks, a day almost a century before. That day is July 4, 1776. It is, of course, the day America declared its independence from Britain, intending to forge ahead very firmly on their own terms. Fitting for a day (and a country) all about freedom, the second most famous “event” to happen on July 4 is what we like to colloquially call “everyone getting smashed.” Not that we, as Canadians, are strangers to booze, of course; Google autocompletes “drinking” to “drinking games” first, and “drinking age in canada” second. “Drinking age in canada” even beats “drinking and driving” if you type an “a” after “drinking.” Though, perhaps that simply shows a greater interest in American youth of the possibilities of getting smashed here instead. In Nakusp, we celebrate in much the same way as other communities, albeit on a less grand scale. All the staples are there; games, a parade, (my personal favourite) food, and more. This

year was no different, with a few notable exceptions; at the forefront of my mind were a small collection of vintage automobiles (and an ‘89-’93 generation Porsche 911), most of which were shined to perfection. The lineup was mostly American, with a large portion being Mustangs, but there were foreigners as well; two Datsuns, a very Swedish-looking Volvo, and said 911. Tearing myself away from the subject of cars (a difficult task), the other happenings were not to be missed. Among them was the game “Bunnock” which I initially mistook for a kind of bread. Of course, that wasn’t the case. Bunnock is actually a game in which you throw bones at other bones in order to knock them down. While somewhat reminiscent of what particularly belligerent children do when playing chess, it is a game of some finesse. According to a rather oddly laid-out rule and fact sheet from the website, it was invented by soldiers posted in the frozen wasteland known as Siberia. It must’ve been a lifesaver; peo-

ple with nothing to do in Siberia might just freeze solid (-71.2 °C was recorded in one city. Where people live! That’s like casually existing inside of a meat locker). While I am unable to report to you the results of the game, as I was distracted by the cars forgot about everything else, it was sure to have been as interesting as any game not involving dragons or warp-speed could be. If you attended, which you likely did, you might be wondering exactly when I mention all the other events. To that I say, “Sorry, I didn’t go.” Bound, as I was, to strictly parental modes of transportation, I did not get to sample many of the goings-on. So, an honourable mention to those casualties, then. An honourable mention, too, to those that organized everything. Sorry, I have no idea who you are, but thanks. Canada Day is, as days go, pretty awesome. It’s when we celebrate, in roundabout ways, what it means to be Canadian. Judging by our festivities, that means knowing how to have fun.

July 1 filled with winners: cardboard boats, bocce, and more Claire paradis Arrow Lakes News

The second Annual Gerry Schiavon Bocce Tournament was won by Francis Swan and Dave Jackson, and they were two among the many who went out, had fun and won on the Canada Day long weekend. Bunnock, the game of bones, had its first first prize of $800 go to the team with Darryl Fizzard, John Spavor, Dave Roger and Stephanie Roger and

Nicole Marcolli. Four hundred dollars and second were awarded to Lloyd Coates, Don Roger, Marie Davidson and Cindy Groffen. Third place and $200 went to Zach Friedenberger, Colten Dachwitz, Shea Weighill and Maddy Palmer. Leah Holden walked away with a free set of bones. There were some creative designs for the cardboard box boats, but the first prize winners for creativity were Kiara and Aurora Pike and Oriah Leeson. Olivia Mang took

second and Ledger Coates third. For the racing of the boats, Garret Waterfield was first, Cameron Mackintosh second and Colby Mackintosh third. The Spirit award went to Olivia and Lisa Mang. The dubious and hilarious Titanic Award was given to Jude Marbury and Jacob Morrow. The Canada Day Show and Shine had two car awards, the People’s Choice which went to a 1967 blue Mustang, and the Owners’ Choice:

the 2013 orange Camaro owned by Fawn Desjarlais. In the motorcycles categories, the People’s Choice was given to a 1986 XL Sportster owned by Pete Southin, and the Owners’ Choice to a 750 cc Laverda owned by Chris Haerter. Kathy Hewar was the lucky ducky who got first place in Overwaitea’s Duck Race. Marsha Roberts’s duck swept in second, and Tory Atherton’s rubber ducky made it in third.

Music in the Park returns to the gazebo in Nakusp Contributed by Karen Hamling

Looking for something to do on a Wednesday night? Come on down to the Music In the Park evening held at the gazebo, across from the beach. It starts at 6:30 p.m. and goes to 8 p.m. and is free. This is the sixteenth year that Nakusp and area residents and visitors have been entertained by musicians from within the Basin and elsewhere. Last Wednesday was the start with ‘That Girl and Earl’ from Nelson. The attendance was great and we had a wonderful evening listening to the duo, their harmonies and guitar playing. Blu Hopkins will be playing a mix of Blues tunes on this Wednesday evening, July 10. We brought them in for the first time last year to celebrate Bunty Maxfield’s life and they were well received.

Joanne Stacey (formerly of Sister Girl) & Friends from Revelstoke will play original and cover songs on July 17. On July 24 we have Scarlet Jane, an exciting duo (from the east) with a fiddler back-up – an all girls band. This is a new band with Andrea Amarolo, who played here in the past and was a huge hit. The last Wednesday in July is the Kootenay Savings Children’s Night. This will feature Pat Dion and friends sing along and of course, our very own Rue the clown, tattoos, goodies, some surprises and a book giveaway. August will see the return of country roots musician Steve Palmer who is always a crowd favourite. On Aug. 14 Jon & Holly (father and daughter team) will play a mix and some blues tunes. For Aug. 21 Benny Walker, in Canada touring from Australia, will be performing a mix of blues,

roots and acoustic folk. August 28 is our wind up and is our ‘Local Focus’ where we ask local musicians to entertain you. This evening is always a big hit and it is great to be able to feature our local musicians. Anyone wishing to be part of the agenda is asked to call Karen at 250265-3322 or drop by the park on a Wednesday evening and touch base with her. If the weather is stormy, we move the performances into the Arena auditorium and so come and look for us there. Although we do provide some chairs for the events, you can bring your own lawn chair. We sell juice to raise funds for next year’s performances and if you want to make a donation, that’s cool too. Come on out and support the Music In the Park Program and drop by and say hi to Kathy, Pat and Karen.

Music in the Park has returned for another season of free Wednesday night music in the great outdoors. Claire Paradis/Arrow Lakes News

A pig, a peacock and plenty of bunnies are just a few of the creatures you can find when you visit Charlotte Ruse’s Charlie Horse Equestrian Adventures. Claire Paradis/Arrow Lakes News

Horseplay from page 1 therapeutic realignment by riding a horse, said Ruse, and experienced riders can feel if there is a problem with the horse too. Our mixed species troupe (Dakota the dog came with us too) made our way up the road and past another field with horses, which socialites Chester and Brian both wanted to visit. But, once we tugged on the reins, and Chester had had a few mouthfuls of grass, we were soon on our way again. Ruse, a natural horsewoman, told us about her how her plans to become a lawyer changed in the third year of her criminology degree. Originally she wanted to be a lawyer so she could afford to have horses and ride, but she decided to cut out the middle step. “I quit. I realized I couldn’t wait to get out of school to go shovel poo at the stables,” said Ruse, having found that what she really wanted to do with her life was work with horses. Although she loved the work and was able to pay her bills, Ruse knew she’d need to make more than minimum wage to have horses of her own, so she went to school at Kwantlen Polytechnic University in Richmond and learned the fine art of farriery. Farriers learn all about horse health from the waist down – their legs – and Ruse learned how to shoe and take care of hoof and leg problems. Ruse not only learned how to help horses, she also learned early on about the healing power of horses. One of the most profound

teaching experiences for her was giving riding lessons to an autistic girl who didn’t say a word or look at Charlotte, in the beginning but would talk and interact once she was at ease up in the saddle. It was an ‘aha’ moment for Ruse who saw the therapeutic power of horses in action and decided she wanted to get horses and riders together. And so there we were, horses and riders pulling on reins like tangled yarn and ineffectually nudging on our horses who were more interested in eating grass and visiting. But even the short ride made an impression about the wonders of working together with (or against) a horse, as well as an impression on muscles being acquainted with sitz bones in a new way via the saddle. After a short ride down one route Ruse has available for trail rides, we headed back to the farm, a good decision for two dudes not used to stretching their legs over the sides of a horse. Trail rides are just one aspect of Ruse’s new horsey business. As mentioned, the young woman is a farrier and will bring her portable forge and anvil to shoe horses, and she also offers both English and Western riding lessons to both adults and kids. Quite the entrepreneur, she’s considering branching out into the manufacture of horse cookies, which are like granola bars for the equine set. Ruse’s source of business inspiration like many others around in the area was the Community Futures Program which she said helped her immensely with the financial and business end of things. Not only did it help, but she enjoyed it and

found it motivating. Ruse is keen to introduce kids to horses, and will be offering a second three-day summer camp for kids this August if there’s enough interest. Considering the first one sold out almost as quickly as it was organized, it’s a very likely proposition. Back at the farmhouse, Ruse explained how to get down off our horses in a way that will ensure you don’t get dragged under and stepped on. My slapstick effort at a dismount, a sideways belly flop down the side of Brian, drew a chuckle from Ruse. My riding companion chose a more dignified route down. Now back on solid ground, walking was a bow-legged cowboy swagger, a side effect I hoped would eventually wear off or I’d have to start investing in spurs and chaps. Ruse isn’t just a horse lover; she has a menagerie of rescued animals that includes a peacock, ducks, goats and an ever-increasing population of bunnies. Walking off the inner thigh muscle stretch we just received, we fussed over the six-day old bunnies and a half-angora fellow who was hard to let go. As we were standing talking about the inner lives of horses which compare with humans in terms of complexity, the phone rang. The power was back on, and people were calling to book trail rides at Charlie Horse. Soon she’d booked two rides for the upcoming Sunday, and my riding companion was asking about lessons. Looks like Charlie Horse will be available for adventure for the foreseeable future.

Endless Adventure hosts social to get people out on the water Contributed by Meredith Vezina

Every Monday night this summer, you will find the Endless Adventure crew in front of the Lion’s Head Pub in Robson for more reasons than the BBQ. Surrounded by their fleet of Recreational kayaks and Stand Up Paddle boards, the team

offers the opportunity to test a variety of water crafts for free from 5:30-7 p.m. The idea for a Flatwater Social night stemmed from the desire to get more people out onto the water in a comfortable, laid-back setting. More so, it allows people to test out different boats and boards to determine what would

best suit them. So come out to the Social Night from 5:30-7 p.m. every Monday! Bring your family and friends, try out a Stand Up Paddle board or a kayak, and then grab a bite from the Lion’s Head Pub. See you there!

With past line-ups including Blackalicious, Ron Sexsmith, Harry Manx, The Coup and The Cave Singers, it was difficult to imagine how Starbelly Jam Music Festival organizers would out-do themselves, but with the full line up announced and advance tickets selling quickly Starbelly Jam 2013 could be the best yet. This year’s line-up includes musical acts from across Canada and around the world including the Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars, Kimya Dawson, Australia’s Blue King Brown, Aesop Rock with Rob Sonic and DJ Big Wiz, Locarno, Shane Philip, Buckman Coe

Band and Portland’s Shook Twins. Even though Starbelly Jam is focused on bringing outstanding international talent to Crawford Bay, B.C. the line-up also showcases some of the best Kootenay talent such as Cranbrook’s the Good Ol’ Goats, Nelson’s Bessie and the Back Eddies and Tofu Stravinsky. “We’ve really got a great mix of everything this year,” said artistic director Lea Belcourt. “From hip hop to blue grass and folk, I really think there is something for everyone at this year’s festival.” Advance tickets are on sale now until July 18 and are available online at

What is the BC Services Card and how do I get one?

AThe new BC Services Card is part of government’s plan to modernize B.C.’s health care system. It replaces your CareCard, and also acts as your photo ID. It’s more convenient, more secure and will enable access to other government services in the future. Most adults will have to renew enrolment in the Medical Service Plan (MSP) by 2018 and apply for a BC Service Card at a driver licensing office like the ones at our Castlegar Downtown and New Denver offices. Before coming into the office, check your driver’s licence and CareCard to be sure that your name matches exactly on both. If not, call Health Insurance BC at 604-683-7151 or 1-800-6337100. The BC Services Card can be issued as a separate piece of photo ID or combined with your driver’s licence (it can not be combined with a BC Identification card or Enhanced Driver’s Licence). There’s no additional fee for the BC Services Card; however, if you choose to combine it with your driver’s licence the regular renewal or duplicate driver’s licence fees still apply.

Obituaries George Matthew Klein Sept. 9, 1970 - June 29, 2013

George Klein from Whitehorse, Yukon was taken from us suddenly in a noble tragedy on June 29, 2013, at Woods Lake, Okanagan, BC. George was born September 9, 1970, to Hugo and Betty Klein of Edgewood, BC. He grew up as a country boy who learned to trap, fish and hunt at an early age. George’s love of the outdoors led him to work as a hunting guide in the Arrow Lakes and eventually took him northward. George married his high school sweetheart, Tracy Flintoft on June 21, 1997. They shared 24 wonderful years together and celebrated 16 years of marriage. George was an excellent hunting guide for many years and then began working for Northfork Taxidermy in Whitehorse in 2005, where he could be closer to his family. Winter or summer, they often went camping, hunting and fishing as George took pleasure in spending quality time with his family. He will be remembered as being an amazing dad totally dedicated and loyal to his wife, family and friends. George was our sunshine, the kind of friend, husband, father, son, brother, and uncle, most hope to be. We will all miss his great sense of humor and stories.

A gathering will be held Saturday, July 6, 2013 at 4pm in the park across from Flintoft’s residence in Edgewood, BC to celebrate George’s life. Please bring your own refreshments, snacks and chairs to share fond memories with family and friends.
